EMC news - With one eye on future Olympic qualification, one young Ottawa gymnast continues to defy gravity and push his limits to reach the top of his potential. Samuel Zakuntey has been a gymnast since age four and began competing when he was 10. He said he’s been passionate about the sport since he started, saying it’s all about the moments he is flying before landing an exercise. “I guess I just like being in the air,” Samuel said. “It feels like you are soaring. “It feels like you are doing the impossible, that you are defying gravity.” The 14-year-old finished first in his age division on May 24 at the Canada Gymnastics Championships, held at Carleton University. Samuel credits his success to his determination to constantly improving his skills -something that comes from training six days a week for around four hours a day. Samuel’s coach, Oleksandr Zavadych said he sees potential in his student, who picks him up from school and drives him to the gymnasium for practice. Samuel said the support he receives from his family, friends and coach has been integral to his training. “Without this support, I wouldn’t have the time to train,” Samuel said. The grueling schedule is made possible because the teen attends École secondaire catholique Franco-Cité, which Samuel said works around his training schedules, allowing him to leave early, or miss time because of competitions. The fight to the top is not easy, however, Samuel admits, and there are times when he feels left out at either school. “I don’t really have a social life, to be honest,” Samuel said. “Sometimes at school, other kids will be talking about a television show that I don’t know about, and I feel left out. It’s a pain to feel like that, but to know that I am doing what I love, it helps me feel like I am making the right choice.” Other times, he said he becomes his worst enemy, as he is in constant competition with himself.

Samuel’s ultimate goal is to qualify for the 2020 Olympics, and if all goes well, he would love to be considered an alternate at the 2016 Olympics. “Making it and representing my country would be amazing to me,” Samuel said.

Injuries make it difficult to perform trickier moves, but sometimes it taking risks are required to be successful in competitions. “Injuries are stressful,” he said. “All the time you are taking risks, risks of really hurting yourself, but also, at the same time, you are also making yourself stronger -- that’s the important part.” Samuel said once summer rolls around, he will take a break from training and competing, but not a long one. “Taking a break is nice, I’m happy to relax but then I get antsy and want to get back to it as soon as I can.”

EMC news - Ontario residents are still at risk of unknowingly buying a home that housed a marijuana-growing operation or drug lab, the provincial real estate association said on May 28 as it renewed its push for a provincial registry. As members of the Ontario Real Estate Association gathered west of the city in Perth, Ottawa real estate agent and Riverside South resident Pat Verge called on the provincial government to act now to let the public know when a home has been damaged or its safety compromised by housing a growing operation . Verge called the prevalence of grow-ops in Ottawa “alarming� and said everyone has a right to know if that’s what they are buying – or in her case, selling. It’s not to say that those homes shouldn’t be sold to new owners, Verge said. But people should be aware that the home is damaged because it means they may have to spend upwards of $100,000 to $150,000 to repair it and make it safe. One of the main concerns is mould that grows as a result of the moist conditions needed to grow marijuana plants, but faulty electrical wiring used to conceal heavy power use can also be a problem. If the home is used as a lab to make drugs such as methamphetamine, harmful chemicals could remain. “I almost sold one,� Verge said. Verge is allergic to mould and her suspicions were aroused when she began sneezing in the home she was selling. She called the police and

“went up the ladderâ€? to track paperwork that could confirm her suspicions. “I was just so upset,â€? Verge said. “The thought of how I could do that to a family ‌â€? The city has made baby steps in the right direction, Verge said. The Ottawa police have a list of known grow-op locations where charges have been laid, but that list only dates back three months. Large operations that are busted by the RCMP aren’t included on that list. And the list doesn’t acknowledge the real number of growing operations that the police may never find out about. At any give time, it is estimated there are 300 to 400 active grow ops in Ottawa, police have told Verge. PAY FOR REPAIRS

Another recent local improvement was a bylaw passed last fall that will force people who own homes that become grow ops to pay for them to be fixed. Verge said she gives the city full credit for working to address the issue. ““But we need provincial leadership on this problem,� she said. “It isn’t just in Ottawa where people are unknowingly purchasing former grow ops and clandestine laboratories – it’s right across Ontario.� There are ways to find out about the history of a home – for a price. Websites like iverify. com provide home histories, but they charge a fee. That information should be publically accessible, Verge said. The best way to do that would be to register the fact that it was a grow op – and that it has been repaired – on the home’s title.

Quick rise for dancing Canterbury graduate Ottawa dancer’s video goes viral EMC news - Emma Portner got recognized as “the girl from the dance video” on her way to her interview. When the 18-year-old dancer left Orléans for New York City last year, she never expected to become a recognizable face so quickly in the dance world. After creating choreography and dance videos titled Purple Rain and Dancing in the Dark with dancer Matt Luck that went viral, her dancing was quickly seen by about half a million people. It’s been a whirlwind year for the local dancer and Canterbury High School graduate since she decided to jump on a plane and chase her dream. “I’ve kind of an all-or-nothing person,” she said. “If I’m going to move, I’m going to take a big step.” She grew up dancing at Leeming Danceworks, competing since she was six years old in ballet, modern dance and tap dancing, but made the big step last year at 17, after graduating high school. She moved into her eight square metre apartment close to Times Square – she calls it a “treehouse” – and started the program at the well-known Alvin Ailey Dance School. Portner was dancing, “saying yes to everything” dance-related that came her way, and talking with another teenage choreographer

Emma Portner is an 18-year-old dancer who grew up in Orléans and moved to New York City after her 2012 graduation from Canterbury High School. Her dancing videos have gone viral, drawing hundreds of thousands of views. based in Los Angles, Matt Luck. She flew to L.A. to put together a dance and video to the song Purple Rain – which has

since been taken offline because of copyright issues with the music – and posted it to YouTube.

The views started coming in, and just kept coming, as dancers and choreographers shared the pair’s contemporary style-routine until it had several hundred thousand views. “The moment we posted it, it went crazy,” she said. “Never in my life did I expect this.” It helps that Portner’s other passion is photography, and she helped stage, shoot and edit the videos as well. She went back to New York to continue dance school, but dancers go to school to get jobs, and when Portner’s dancing went viral, she got jobs. She soon left to pursue choreography, professional shows and take classes all over the city. She’s made more videos with Luck since, including the video Dancing in the Dark, which has a quarter of a million views and can still be seen on YouTube. Her dance style is difficult to describe: a mix between contemporary dance and what she describes as “really human and pedestrian movements.” Dancing in the Dark features her and Luck on a lit stage, in plain clothing, a mix between basic movements and quick intricate steps, without any large leaps or spins. “It’s really honest and really intricate,” she said. “Most dancers would call it contemporary. I call it human dancing.” Whatever the name for it, her style has been popular, and she’s been getting requests to choreograph numbers all over – including at Leeming Danceworks when she travels home to Ottawa – and recently was a judge at a dance competition. She was also in a show in Los Angeles where the dancers performed alongside a live musical artist who flew in from the United Kingdom to perform with them. And in October, she’ll get to choreograph and dance in her own show in Toronto as a part of the Arts Under 20 series. While she might be known as “the girl in the video” to some, she hopes that the viral success is just a jump start to a career that will be full of international travel, choreography and shows – though there aren’t plans to stop creating dance videos. “We don’t want it to stop here,” she said. “Right now, I just want to be dancing … never in my life did I expect this.” G%%&'&().)(

City makes new request for Ottawa Stadium proposals “The Fat Cats put their necks on the line; I don’t believe the city treated them well, certainly not when it came to them wanting to bring in other events,” he said. “The Fat Cats wanted to bring in community events and now the city is saying that’s what they want to do? I don’t understand.” Perry said the community association had a great relationship with the former tenants, including working together on community events. “The Fat Cats did their very best, we were partners, and that is what you want. And again if the city doesn’t want that, then we really are stuck,” she said. This news of a new round of negotiations has the community feeling hopeful, Perry added, but at the end of the day, the group is simply looking for the truth. “What do they want? It’s easy to say this failed, and that failed, and I fully expect at the end of the day it will be developed,” Perry said. “I just want the city to be honest. Be honest city. And engage the community.” Teams and organizations interested in booking the Ottawa Baseball Stadium can contact city-wide allocations. Casual bookings are done a on first-come-first-served basis. Staff is available from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by phone at 613-580-2595, by e-mail at sports@ottawa.ca or in person at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Dr.

FACILITY REPAIRS

The facility has not been upgraded since it was built in the early 1990s, but some improvements and maintenance has started.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

The Ottawa Baseball Stadium ticket windows remain closed for another season. The city is considering a report and may revisit the question of leasing this year. According to Peter Radke, manager of the city’s realty initiatives and development department, since February 2013 the only work being completed is the final waterproofing of exposed concrete. Additional work being considered for 2013 relates to electrical, mechanical, and fire and life safety elements of the stadium that must be completed, regardless of tenancy. The report indicates it would cost around $250,000 The last tenants, the Ottawa Fat Cats, leased the facility from April 2010 to September 2012 on a yearby-year lease. A former general manager of the club, Duncan MacDonald, said the organization paid $108,000 to rent the facility. During that time, the organization paid for all the maintenance and upgrades, which MacDonald said was around $250,000, which was also paid for by the club. “We paid all the bills,” MacDonald said. “We paid rent in full and in advance and then began fixing up the facility.” The first thing the organization did, MacDonald said was spend $30,000 just to have the plumbing fixed. The fact that a once state-of-theart facility is falling apart has Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark upset. “I was a part of that stadium getting built,” Clark said. “We were

proud of that stadium; letting it lapse and fall into disrepair, was an error.” Overbrook resident Peter MacFarlane is a long time Ottawa Stadium fan and a ticket holder since the doors opened in 1993. He said he is saddened to see the stadium in its current state. “As a teacher, I took my students through one of the first tours of the stadium,” MacFarlane said. “Looking at it now -it’s totally frustrating, it’s not that it isn’t useable, it’s perfectly useable.” MacFarlane said he partly blames the city on how it handled the stadium, noting that he does not under-

stand why the city sold a portion of the stadium’s parking lot. He also questioned the city’s treatment of the stadium’s former tenants.

EMC news - After sitting idle for months awaiting a potential minor league-level tenant, a new city report indicates the Ottawa Baseball Stadium could open up for community use this summer. Released on May 28, the report indicates the city needs to revisit the conversation surrounding leasing opportunities for the stadium, adding that the parks and recreation department will take over programming at the facility this summer and fall. The latest development in the ongoing saga comes as good news for the surrounding community, president of the Overbrook Community Association Sheila Perry said. “It’s been a shame that nothing is going on there,” Perry said. “This is good news, but we wonder if it’s too late in the season for anything. It seems it’s at the last hour.” According to Dan Chenier, general manager of the parks and recreation department, bookings are already under way and use will begin in the later part of June. There is no deadline regarding the bookings, but they are done on a first-come-first-served basis, for casual use only. The report calls for the city to allocate $50,000 in one-time funding to support this programming. The city has suggested such uses could include ultimate frisbee, cricket and baseball leagues. Opening up use of the facility to the community comes after a year of failed negotiations between the city and Beacon Sports Capital Partners to bring a AA baseball team to Ottawa. In February 2012, council approved a report that allocated $5.7 million to give the Coventry Road stadium a major upgrade, including the installation of artificial turf. On direction from city council, staff entered into negotiations with Beacon Sports to form a renovation plan and a lease agreement with an AA baseball franchise. According to the latest report, city staff and Beacon Sports met numerous times over a five month period following the initial approval. Three potential groups negotiated to lease the stadium, but all eventually backed off because of renovation costs, now estimated between $10 to $30 million. Now staff is calling for the parameters surrounding finding a new tenant to be broadened, stating the city needs to take a broader approach to turn the stadium into “a family-friendly entertainment destination that is anchored in professional baseball, but also offers other amenities.”

Just say no to grow-op registry

B

uyer beware. And buyers of really big items – like a house – should be very wary indeed. Members of the Ontario Real Estate Association are calling on the province to create a provincial database of all homes that have been used as marijuana grow-ops or drug labs. There is a risk that a former grow-op could contain moulds and that a chemical lab location could have dangerous residues. A local realtor suggests a provincial list of these homes could be consulted by would-be home buyers before signing for a new home. It sounds like a reasonable plan until the effectiveness and cost of a drug house registry is considered. Who will pay to create the database, and more importantly, who will pay to keep it updated? No one wants to download busy-work onto police officers in multiple jurisdictions – municipal, OPP and RCMP – when they could be solving crimes or preventing them. The real estate agents’ wish list would also be sadly incomplete. Police only know about homes where they find grow-ops or drug labs, leaving all the other illicit locations off any provincial registry. And it turns out there are pay-per-use websites that home seekers can check to learn the history of a

home. Given the size of a home purchase, the cost of adding in a history check doesn’t seem onerous. Then there’s the issue of spending public funds to create a database that will benefit only one part of the population. If you can afford a house, you’re fortunate. Buying a house is a private transaction, so the responsibility should fall on the parties involved to do their due diligence. If we as a society mandate that the province must keep tabs on homes others may not want to buy, how long will it be until we need a registry of homes where murders have occurred? How about a list of houses with Bad Mojo or a report of ghosts? Buyer beware is a fact of life. Plus we have laws to dissuade anyone from selling a damaged home without telling the buyer. If someone knowingly sells a house and does not inform the buyer of hidden damage – from any source – they could face charges of fraud. No one should have to live in a mouldy or damaged home, so people shopping for a house should do everything they can to make sure their purchase is healthy. If they hire a real estate agent, they should be confident that the agent has their best interests at heart and has done all possible research on their dream home.

Canada Post takes a flyer with junk mail plea

C

hances are you received a peculiar letter from Canada Post recently. It told you that you are part of a Canada Post database of people who had requested that no flyers be delivered. You might have forgotten that you ever did that. The letter then asked you to reconsider, by mailing in a postage-free card to Canada Post’s “Consumers’ Choice Program” saying that you would like to receive unaddressed mail at your address. Notice how big organizations, when they are urging you to accept something unpleasant, always give it a name like “Consumer’s Choice”? And speaking of unaddressed, this letter from Canada Post was addressed to “Dear Occupant.” Noting that the mailing was printed on sustainable paper that can be recycled, Canada Post told you that by refusing to accept unaddressed mail – which some cranky people insist on calling junk mail – we were missing out on coupons, catalogues, fundraising appeals from charities, municipal and community notices and product samples. Unaddressed mail, Canada Post says “can save you money and keep you connected with your local community.” What is this all about, really? Well, news

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town reports say Canada Post lost money last year. As to the unaddressed mail, here’s a quote from a Canada Post spokesperson, seen in the National Post: “We deliver all types of mail and all are important to the senders. And we owe it to those who pay for the service to receive the most effective service for their dollars.” In other words: companies pay us money to put those flyers in mailboxes and they’re leaning on us to get more mailboxes. Things have come to a pretty pass for a once-proud organization – having to plead with customers to accept junk mail, masking its plea as an offer to help us keep connected with our local community. Of course, we all know why. Many Canadians, perhaps most, now receive their personal mail – what we used to call “letPublished weekly by:

ters” – electronically. You may have the odd Luddite friend or eccentric uncle who still handwrites a letter, puts it in an envelope and puts a stamp on it, but that’s about it. The great majority of communications you receive are on your computer. That even goes for junk mail, which is not in short supply in the digital world either. So we can understand that Canada Post is hurting and why, but there must be a more creative and positive way to be part of the solution than simply agreeing to receive more mail that we will never read (and causes more trees to be cut down). Apparently the most obvious solution – asking companies, political parties and other organizations to put their stuff in envelopes and buy stamps like the rest of us – wouldn’t fly with Canada Post’s partners in unaddressed mail. But maybe something else would work. For example, we would be far more receptive to a Canada Post campaign urging us to sit down and handwrite an angry letter to a politician, or a postcard to a grandchild, or a letter to the editor about something silly going on in the world, such as Canada Post trying to get us to accept junk mail.

which some of us have forgotten how to do. Perhaps we could even learn to write on sustainable paper that can be recycled. If we were to write such letters, we would have to buy stamps, which would be good for Canada Post. People on the receiving end – except maybe for the politicians – would be happy to get something in their mailboxes that didn’t contain coupons or photographs of John Baird. True, all of this would mean that we would be using more paper and contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests. But what’s more important, a bunch of trees or the future of Canada Post?

An apology, in three parts

M

y two boys are close in age. As such, they can frequently be found playing together, reading together or crafting together. But they also fight. They fight a lot. They wrestle; they argue. The younger is often the instigator. But the eldest is good at keeping the fight going. Neither one likes to apologize. But who does, right? Even as adults, apologizing is never easy. For one thing, we can always find reasons to avoid being the first to say sorry. Even if we do step up, apologies are too often couched in “buts,” as in, “I’m sorry for what I did, but you were horrible and that’s why I did it.” Or, “I’m sorry I hurt your feelings, but I’m not sorry I said it.” As we’ve seen recently with the scandal in the Senate, even those holding the highest posts in Canadian government that have been caught lying, cheating and covering-up their mismanagement of public money have been unable to deliver an unqualified apology. There’s no doubt about it; apolo-

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse gies can seem difficult. I’ll be honest: I’m struggling with an apology right now. Not for the first time, I used social media as a venue to voice my objections to a friend’s opinions on a subject of controversy. As anyone who uses the Internet knows, we can often be much less diplomatic in text than we would in face-to-face interactions. We say things to people on Facebook or in emails that we would never say to their faces. Researchers have chalked this up to our ability to create an online identity that is not constrained by realities in the physical world. I can be rude online, for ex-

ample, because I don’t have to see the hurt look on the person’s face, because they can’t shout back at me in real time or because I don’t have to worry about getting slapped as a result of my snotty comments. That’s what I did. I overstepped in cyberspace. This person sent the criticism right back. We argued, and now there’s a stalemate. So how to proceed? Well, obviously, as a reasonable adult, I have to apologize. As it turns out, this person is important to me. So regardless of any bad behaviour on her part, I need to take the high road. I’ve spent many days think-

ing about my own behaviour, my own comments, so I can focus my apology on the things within my control. Regardless of our different political views, I said mean things and made it personal. That was wrong and I am responsible for it. But as the recent Senate scandals have highlighted, there is a right way to apologize and there is a wrong way to apologize. I tell my own children if you’re going to say the words, “I’m sorry,” you need to wait until you mean it, without caveats. And in order for it to be authentic, you need to do more than just say those two little words. An honest apology should actually contain three parts. The first is an unqualified and authentic, “I’m sorry.” The second is asking for forgiveness (along with a promise not to do the same thing again). The third part is asking, “what can I do to make it right?” Unfortunately, we too often focus on the first part at the expense of the latter two. This, in my opinion, is why apologies – such as those from the government and senators in recent

days – fall short. It’s one thing to say sorry authentically. It’s quite another to follow up with a commitment to alter your own behaviour and take action to make things right. The three-part apology offers a neat formula for all of us, really – “I’m sorry. Will

It’s one thing to say sorry authentically. It’s quite another to follow up with a commitment to alter your own behaviour and take action to make things right. you forgive me? How can I make it right?” And once you get the hang of it, it makes apologizing seem far less intimidating and complex. Imagine how different the world would look if our political leaders adopted this simple model.

EMC news - Residents of Alta Vista are saying their community will be the most awesome place to be in the city this weekend as they prepare for a neighbourhood-wide event. The Awesome Alta Vista Garage Sale will take place on June 8 and as of the end of May, more than 60 homes are participating in the event. Organizer Marc Boivin said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely more will be to be added by sale day. What makes this garage sale so awesome? According to Boivin, it is that there are so many spots to stop in a concentrated area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a wide ranging demographic and mix of residents in Alta Vista will ensure that there will be something for sale to meet everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs and interests,â&#x20AC;? he said. The event is now in its third year and in the

past, patrons were able to ďŹ nd everything from toys, books, furniture, electronics, bicycles, clothes, artwork â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be undoubtedly some interesting ďŹ nds and great conversation pieces,â&#x20AC;? Boivin said. It is up to each participant whether the money made goes to charity or their pocket, but for the community association this event is about bringing the neighbourhood together and making friends. There is no need for volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each homeowner is responsible for their own sale,â&#x20AC;? Boivin said. To add an address to the map, participants need only send a message to altavistagaragesale@gmail.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who would like to hit the ground running on the day of the garage sale should look at the map and plan a route to ensure that they have hit every house,â&#x20AC;?

Hundreds tour Hydro Ottawa’s historic generating station at Chaudière Falls

The Chaudière Generating Station No. 2 was open to the public as part of Doors Open Ottawa.

Hydro Ottawa provided a rare glimpse inside one of Canada’s oldest operating run-of-the-river hydroelectric generating stations on June 1st and 2nd. Hundreds turned out for free tours of the historic building, located on Victoria Island. The facility was opened to the public as part of Doors Open Ottawa. Brought to the community by the City of Ottawa, it is the city’s largest heritage and architectural event, giving visitors a rare opportunity to visit inside some of Ottawa’s most prestigious buildings and facilities. “Chaudière Falls is in the heart of Canada’s National Capital and has great historical significance,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa. “It fueled the industrial explosion of the mid 1800s by providing the water power for the vast complex of lumber mills that generated electricity that drove railroads and factories in the area after 1885.” Hydro Ottawa owns and operates three generating stations at Chaudière Falls. Generating Station No. 2 was originally built in 1891 by industrialist E.H. Bronson. The Bronson family was a leader in lumber-related industry in the Ottawa Valley. In 2001, the station was completely rebuilt. All of the generators were rewound, the turbines were replaced, the channels and dam structures rehabilitated and the station completely automated. However, all of the heritage elements of the station were preserved and the equipment looks as it did 100 years ago.

Rockcliffe base plans shaping up Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Members of the public had the chance to see the preliminary plans for the redevelopment of the former Rockcliffe air base at a recent open house in Overbrook. Three alternative designs were on display illustrating different ways the Canada Lands Company could potentially develop the 125 hectare area east of Ottawa’s downtown. The day-long event offered residents of surrounding communities a chance to put their mark on the community design plan which will be presented in late 2013 or early 2014. The workshop focused on three design alternatives to accommodate about 6,000 residents alongside a mix of employment, retail and educational developments. Dubbed the Arc, the Grid and the True North, the designs showcased development in varying ways. Participants divided into 10 groups had the opportunity to speak about different aspects of the designs, everything from zoning to grid patterns to the types of retail and employment planned for the site. Each group pointed out the pros and cons of the three alternatives, with more than one group stating they would like to see a fourth plan with a blend of options from the three. Architect firm Brook McIlroy designed the plans and principal architect Anne McIlroy was on hand to speak to residents. “Our next step is to create a fourth plan,” she said. “Today people are really being the designers. It’s important that people know they are in charge of the plans.”

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

A group gets down to work on May 25 at the Hampton Inn to discuss the plans of three design alternatives for a community design plan for the former CFB Rockcliffe. The Algonquins of Ontario and Canada Lands have an agreement concerning development on the site, which includes a commemoration of the history of the Algonquin people, participation in all stages of the concept development, land use planning and detailed design, and the use of qualified Algonquin companies for the project. Each alternative plan had a designated spot for an Algonquin Commemoration overlooking the Ottawa River. Important points that multiple working groups highlighted was that retail space should not become dead at night, citing Sparks Street as an example. The groups said it was important for there to be a mix of residential and retail together.

McIlroy agreed. “I really heard their comments,” she said. “It is definitely something we will think about: how we can mix the retail and the residential better.” Some of the other concerns raised were that all three plans offered a degree of cut-through traffic, high density buildings needed to be close to parkland and the need for retail to be scattered throughout the area. There were four workshops in total which had the group discuss the urban landscape, infrastructure, connections and alternative design concepts. The workshops were led by volunteer facilitators, some who live near the proposed development. The facilitators reported each group’s findings to the larger

McIlroy, along with other team members of the Rockcliffe project took notes, as well part of the documentation of the participant’s points was designed into a graphic representation by Living Tapestries Jennifer Shepherd. Burma Road resident Gayle Fraser attended the open house with friend and Manor Park resident, Melanie Amyotte. The two ladies said they were intrigued by the idea of having a retail strip and the village square. “Maybe a fresh market, like a local farmers’ market could be interesting,” Amyotte said. “It would be a good use of the space.” Both women said they intend to continue participating in the consultation process. McIlroy said that when it comes to developing the next plan, it requires her team to balance what they heard at the workshop with what can be accomplished and accommodated on the site. “We want this community to be visibly different,” she said. McIlroy likened the planning of this community to other Canada Lands Company developments currently underway and completed, such as the Downsview Park redevelopment in Toronto and Garrison Crossing in Chilliwack, B.C. “The types of neighbourhoods we are creating are similar,” McIlroy said. The open house welcomed more than 200 people through its doors at the Hampton Inn on May 25. Canada Lands Company is a Crown corporation that manages government properties across the country. Canada Lands acquired the property in June 2011 and are currently working on its first step for the development site, the community design plan, which will be handled by MMM Group. According to organizers, feedback from the consultation, will form part of the information used to build the community design plan. It will be also developed based on technical analysis, information generated by required studies as well as on detailed review by a technical advisory committee, city departments and stakeholder agencies. The designs, along with information concerning the community design plan, will be available on www.clcrockcliffe. ca and on www.ottawa.ca. The development of the land will take place in phases and could take a number of years to complete. Where construction will begin has yet to be determined. Another meeting is planned for the fall.

Jepsen to headline Canada Day festivities Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Putting Families First Parents are fully aware of the expenses that come with raising a family. From basic necessities such as clothing and food, to education and recreational activities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it adds up fast. That is why our Government has consistently worked to support and deliver savings for Canadian families since we were ďŹ rst elected in 2006. We started by introducing the Universal Child Care BeneďŹ t, providing real choice in child care by giving parents $1,200 a year for each child under the age of six. We have kept taxes low, including cutting the lowest personal income tax rate to 15%, as well as cutting the GST from 7% to 5%. We have also delivered tax credits that are helping families save every year, such as the Family Caregiver Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fitness Tax Credit and the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arts Tax Credit. The average family now saves $3,200 a year. Despite these savings, Canadians remain mindful of the fact that the price of many products they need to support their family are consistently priced higher in Canada compared to the exact same product sold in the United States. Our Government understands this concern, and we have taken action through our latest Budget, Economic Action Plan 2013, to help deliver lower prices for hard-working Canadian families. Hockey skates, skis and baby clothing are just a few of the goods that will now be a little more affordable. To do this, our Government has removed tariffs on imported baby clothing and sports equipment, resulting in signiďŹ cant savings for families. Other examples of products that are now tariff-free include: snowboards, golf clubs, snowshoes, toboggans and roller skates. We strongly encourage businesses to pass these savings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in full â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to their customers. These results build on our Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong record of providing real savings to Canadian families. In fact, since 2009, we have eliminated close to 1,900 tariffs, providing more than $525 million in tariff relief annually to Canadian businesses and consumers. Ultimately, Canadians are aware that our dollar has strengthened considerably compared to the U.S. dollar. It makes sense, therefore, that a strong dollar should be reďŹ&#x201A;ected in the prices Canadians pay when they purchase products for their families with their hard-earned money.

Mutchmor parking situation still up in the air Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Before the Ottawa District School Board turns a portion of Mutchmor Public Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yard into a parking lot, the Glebe Community Association has asked the board and city to work together on finding a better solution. The Ottawa District School Board is preparing to renovate and expand Mutchmor Public School in the Glebe to deal with overcrowding in downtown schools, part of a plan commonly known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the switch.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;switchâ&#x20AC;? would swap programs and school populations between two Glebe public schools and add 11 classrooms to Mutchmor. As a result of these plans, the association has asked for space to accommodate school staff parking at the city-owned lot located between Second and Third avenues, west of Bank Street. Sharon Chartier of the Glebe Community Association said this proposal is being entertained by both the board and the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have asked the board to put the extra parking spots in the parking lot and pay for them at the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense,â&#x20AC;? Chartier said. The cost to the board would be $130 per month, per pass. At the moment, the discussion surrounding the number of spaces required has ranged as high as 43 and as low as 21. This proposal, Chartier said, is all in an effort to save the school field at Mutchmor. The board has put forward the option to pave a portion of the field to fulfil parking needs at the school.

Michael Clarke, the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superintendent of facilities, said the board will continue to work with the city and community to try and find a workable solution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to reach a collaborative decision that will benefit all involved,â&#x20AC;? Clarke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand that the community wants an answer now, but at this point we remain in discussions with the city and no decision has been. It would be premature to state that a deal has been reached but we are moving forward.â&#x20AC;? At a meeting in January, Clarke said the parking issue is separate from the overall expansion project, and is subject to a separate public consultation. At the time, Clarke said as a result of the expansion, 17 spaces will be left at the school, but the expanded building will require up to 43 to address the increase in staff. Those remaining spots, Clarke said at the time, would need to be off-site, but close to the school. LESS PARK SPACE

According to the community association, the Glebe had less than 50 per cent of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standard for city parkland. The Mutchmor Field (between Third and Fourth avenues) is the property of the school board, but it is because of the lack of green space Chartier said the field sees more than 300 hours of programmed activities and a total of 6,000 children use the space in programs offered by the Glebe Neighborhood Activities Group. Two community-supported ice rinks are located on the field in the winter. In the summer

Chartier added that the committee has been talking with teachers and both parent councils about the parking proposals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The teachers have been a part of the conversation,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do know we all want to find a solution and that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want our close relationship disrupted by parking.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The switchâ&#x20AC;? proposal turned out to be the preferred option among parents and was approved in December 2011 - However at the time, the discussion of turning the playing field at the school into a parking lot never came up, Cartier said. She has heard from various parents that if they had known this would have been the battle they would not have agreed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;the switch.â&#x20AC;?

Corridor 5 residents bus to bridge open house Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A busload of Kettle Island residents attended an open house in Orléans to voice opposition to any interprovincial bridge in the east end of Ottawa. The latest interprovincial bridge open house took place at Shenkman Arts Centre on May 27. Residents from the technically preferred corridor, Kettle Island, attended to speak with consulting firm Roche-Genivar and NCC officials about the selection, the bridge and they continue to question the process. A total of 198 people came out to the consultation with a group of the islanders arriving in a yellow school bus. The bus was paid for by the Rockcliffe Park Residents Association, and was offered to residents of Rockcliffe Mews, Carson Grove, Manor Park, New Edinburgh and Lindenlea. Secretary for the association, Iola MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND Price, organized the bus. Peter Wilson became a one-man protest outside of Shenkman Arts Centre on May 27 at “We felt it was important to the latest interprovincial bridge open house. Wilson says the decision to choose Kettle make sure those who couldn’t Island as the preferred option simply spreads the truck traffic and does not solve the get here could, and that we issue of tractor-trailers downtown. took many cars off the road,” Price said. Taking cars off the road is part of an argument put forward by Kettle Island residents and many others. Ian Gadbois of the Convent Glen Community Association attended the event, even though both corridors 6 and 7 – near his neighbourhood – are no longer options. “While we are relieved that corridors 6 or 7 were not chosen, we continue to be concerned about the bridge issue,” Gadbois said. “We are concerned from two angles. One is that scarce government resources would be spent better on expansion of the LRT, renewal of aging infrastructure and cleanup of the Ottawa River than on any bridge, and the second is that more careful consideration should be given to a tunnel as a possibly more effective solution to the downA delicious cereal made of crispy whole grain flakes, town truck problem.” crunchy granola bunches with the distinctive taste of Greek Yogurt, and a touch of natural honey. Gadbois added that Mayor Jim Watson has said a tunnel should be reconsidered. But lead consultant Eric Peissel, a consultant for Roche-Genivar Joint Venture and the NCC’s Fred Gaspère say a tunnel is not a viable option. “At its core, a tunnel would only serve one purpose,” Gaspère said. “The purpose is for Great coupons at Save.ca a long-term transportation

strategy.” Peissel added that trucks with hazardous materials would be forbidden in a tunnel, leaving those trucks continuing to take the King Edward route. Hired by the NCC to establish which of three locations would be the best option for a new interprovincial crossing, Roche-Genivar has been undertaking an environmental assessment for the past two years, holding public consultations, open houses, online comment forms and round table discussions to capture residents’ comments about a

new crossing. The company says Kettle Island ranks best in traffic and transportation, natural environment, economic environment, land use and properties and costs. It ranked lower when it came to looking at the social environment and for water use and resources, including a potential risk to the Gatineau water treatment plant, but the team was assured that any spills would be considered manageable. As Gaspère said, the plans for a bridge are partly based on projections for the year 2031. According to the consultants, traffic will increase by 60 per cent on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge and by constructing a new crossing in corridor 5, those traffic numbers will be reduced while keeping the level of truck volumes equal to what it is today. The consulting firm did look at what would happen if they were to somehow limit the truck traffic on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge, which resulted in more traffic being dispersed to the downtown bridges and found there would still be a lot of trucks in the downtown core, because that’s where their destinations are

located. Rockcliffe resident Peter Wilson said those numbers argue the point residents in all the corridors have been saying – any bridge will not alleviate the truck traffic in the downtown core. POOR ATTENDANCE

The open house in Orléans saw poor attendance compared to a similar open house last year, when there were still three corridors in the running. That event showed off the three preferred routes and more than 1,200 people attended. A rally was held at the event with all the community associations banding together to tell officials a bridge in any of the locations was not the answer. Wilson became a one-man protest outside of the Shenkman centre, but as more people attended the open house, they stopped to talk to him. Wilson said this is not just a fight for residents of Kettle Island. “Whereever the bridge goes, the damage is going to be horrendous,” he said. “I sympathize with Lowertown. I do. I think everyone does. I’m not fighting against them at all; I’m trying to let them know that it’s not going to solve the problem. “I think most of us are fighting for the people of Lowertown.” Some of corridor 5 residents said they have resented recent media reports, emails and calls about how it’s a choice between a rich neighbourhood and Lowertown. Wilson said that is not the case at all. “They are just spreading the problem,” he said. “To me it would be like if you had a hole in your living room and a roofer came over and said, ‘OK we can reduce your problem by 30 per cent,’ and they put a hole in your dining room.” Wilson added he will keep fighting because he doesn’t feel the outcome is right. “It’s not over until it’s over,” he said. Recent reports released by Roche-Genivar revealed a bridge would cost taxpayers $1.6 billion. Funding is not in place. Whether a bridge will be built still remains up in the air according to the NCC, which has only committed to work with the provinces on the environment assessment.

Richcraft drops plan for sales centre in park Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Richcraft will drop its plan to build a sales centre in a temporary park it is constructing on Rideau Street in Sandy Hill after the community strongly opposed it. The developer has offered to extend the lifespan of the soon-to-be-built temporary park to six or seven years from the current three years if Richcraft gained residents’ support to add an office to sell units for a condo it plans to build nearby at Rideau and Cobourg streets. But around 300 residents who attended the annual general meeting of the local community association on May 16 made up their minds before hearing a presentation given by Richcraft representatives the following week. Around 20 people attended that meeting to reiterate Action Sandy Hill’s position that the developer must live up to its commitment to provide a temporary park for three years. Kevin Yemm, a representative from Richcraft, said the company plans to complete the park and open it by July 1. While the site looks unfinished, Richcraft’s Steve Grandmont said much of the groundwork has been laid and the majority of the work that remains is simply landscaping. Residents at the meeting were angry that the park is still not in place, despite a an initial deadline last fall for completion of the park. But the city didn’t meet its own deadline to approve the park agreement, so that eliminated the park-completion deadline, Yemm said. The city’s planning manager hasn’t imposed a new deadline. Yemm said the request to

add a sales centre would maximize Richcraft’s business opportunities by ensuring it has a highly visible, consistent location for a sales centre for the Rideau/Cobourg condo project, and afterwards it could potentially be used to pre-sell units for a future building on the site of the park at Rideau and Charlotte. But Yemm said the addition of the sales centre could also benefit the community by ensuring the park-like setting would be maintained for a longer period. He also said that a sales centre could benefit the park by bringing electricity and lighting, which are not part of the park plan approved by the city. Yemm offered to make a presentation at the May 16 Action Sandy Hill annual general meeting, but was turned down because there was no room on the agenda. Those potential benefits didn’t convince residents at the meeting, who were more concerned about the addition of parking and car traffic to the site and the loss of about a third of the green space they were promised. “The community has said ‘no,’ in no uncertain terms,” said Sally Southey, who was recently elected to the Action Sandy Hill board. “I just think the sales centre will make an ugly entrance to the community,” said Vivian Clark, another resident. Grandmont insisted there would be no way to retain the park and add a sales centre after the three-year park lease agreement with the city ends. “Either way, I have to relocate my sales centre here in three years,” Grandmont said. “I’m not going to take (the park) out and rebuild.” Several people at the May 27 meeting accused Richcraft of planning to put a sales centre in the park all along, but

Europe Your Way

Yemm said that was never the plan. When negotiations for a temporary park began, a project to reconstruct Rideau Street was not imminent. When that road reconstruction was fast-tracked, it created the infrastructure capacity to move forward with the condo project and that means a sales centre is now needed, Yemm said. The park will cost around $70,000 for Richcraft to construct and the company will pay the city $10,000 each year for three years to maintain the park. Grandmont said Richcraft wants to be seen as a member of the Sandy Hill community. Residents said they would like to have a more productive relationship with the developer, but better communication is needed. “So far, Richcraft has given us vacant sites and empty buildings,” Rollins said. “We are going to have to deal with each other for a few years to come … we would like it to be productive.”

The graphic at right shows the temporary three-year park that Richcraft will build at the corner of Rideau and Charlotte streets by July 1. The developer wanted to change the plans to include a sales centre, shown at the bottom, but is no longer pursuing that after the community rallied against the idea.

Ride the Rideau adds 50-km route Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The fourth annual Ride the Rideau fundraiser hopes to attract new cyclists with a shorter route for this year’s event. Organizers at the Ottawa Hospital Foundation have added a 50-kilometre bike ride along the Rideau River to complement the original 100-km ride to fund cancer research on Sept. 7. Event co-ordinator Michelle van Vliet said riders in the new 50-km category will do half the original route between Ottawa and Merrickville and then will be shuttled the rest of the way to the evening celebration in the small riverside town. She said the standard $1,500 fundraising minimum will still apply for 50-km riders, because the foundation wants to make as big an impact as possible. But Van Vliet said distance is often more of a challenge than fundraising. “We always thought the $1,500 would be a big barrier, but we’re meeting more and more people who want to

do the ride but are terrified of the distance,” she said. “Every year we’re just trying to create a better rider experience.” She said team members don’t all have to complete the same route; some can do the full 100km, and others can choose to ride 50km. “Camaraderie is so important,” she said, noting that

Every year we’re just trying to create a better rider experience MICHELLE VAN VLIET

many participants are on corporate teams. “They’re using Ride the Rideau to boost staff morale and staff fitness. It just gives people a chance to train together and fundraise together and build that team.” In just three years, Ride the Rideau has become the most successful single-day cancer

fundraiser in Eastern Ontario. It has raised more than $4.4 million since it began, and riders have helped fund new therapies and the opening of the Centre for Innovative Cancer Research. 718 ON WHEELS

Last year the event raised $1.74 million for cancer research with 718 cyclists taking the scenic tour along the world heritage site. Van Vliet hopes to have 1,000 cyclists this year, as well as 350 volunteers. She said they are on target and “tracking well ahead of last year” for registrations and fundraising. She said the foundation would like to surpass their biggest fundraising amount to date, $1.82 million. Leading up the event, organizers will offer group training rides, skill sessions and bike maintenance workshops. “Now’s the time (to register),” she said. “It allows for more time to train and also for SUBMITTED fundraising.” To register or for more in- Ride the Rideau will take cyclists along the Rideau River on September 7 as part of a formation visit ridetherideau. major fundraiser for cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital. ca.

Lyon Street building sees third fire Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - For the third time in two years, fire crews were called to battle a blaze at 292 Lyon St. North last week. The two-alarm fire was first reported at 10:16 p.m. on May 29. Due to the extent of the fire, crews tackled it from the exterior until it was declared safe to enter the building. No one was inside the structure at the time crews arrived. Fire department spokesman Marc Messier said the blaze started in a second-floor bedroom and is believed to have been accidental. A portable, 20-pound propane tank was found in the wreckage that suggests a person or persons had gained access to the unoccupied building and were using the tank for cooking or heating pur-

poses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an exact cause, but the damage seems consistent with the propane tank in the bedroom and what it was operating,â&#x20AC;? said Messier. Damages from the fire are pegged at $150,000. One firefighter was taken to hospital as a precaution for heat exhaustion. The two-story brick building had become well-known to firefighters due to two previous blazes. The first, in July, 2011, resulted from a mattress that had caught fire and was subsequently tossed out a window, causing further fires outdoors. In March of this year, another fire broke out, causing the building to be boarded up as the owner arranged the necessary repairs. Hydro was still supplying the building, though gas had been shut off. Messier said the building was sup-

posed to be empty and that an alarm system was in place, though it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t known if the system was working. Though work crews had been in the building shortly before the fire, someone had obviously had gained access to the inside. Due to the extent of the fire and the damage caused by firefighters â&#x20AC;&#x153;opening upâ&#x20AC;? the structure, Messier said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if the structure is salvageable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the insurance company,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Ottawa firefighters battled a blaze on Lyon Street North on May 29. Damages from the fire are estimated at $150,000. STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Overbrook gardens a community effort Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

RECOGNIZING OUR OUT OF THIS WORLD STAFF

EMC news - Three weeks ago, the far corner behind the Overbrook Community Centre Park near Edith Street was bare. Now, 24 wooden boxes are arranged in rows, where vegetables and herbs have been planted and already little sprouts can be seen above the dark earth. “Last November we were looking at how to could improve things here in Overbrook,” said Sheila Perry, president of the Overbrook Community Association. Someone suggested building a community garden and the idea took off. The community association, in partnership with a number of individuals, organizations and local businesses, officially opened the Overbrook Community Gardens on May 25. “It’s an amazing project,” said Perry. “It’s so special.” The new food garden was a community effort, with two schools lending a major hand, said Perry. Rideau High School built all the wooden boxes and carved the numbers and plaques decorating the bins. “These will last 25 years,” said Perry of the large wooden crates. Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School built the shed

It takes a community to raise a child. And the staff of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is an integral part of this community for many children, youth and families. This month we would like to recognize the CASO employees whose commitment and dedication has helped to shape the futures of countless children and youth in the region. To kick off this month-long event, CASO applauded many of its talented staff at a recognition ceremony. Participants celebrated careers that ranged from five to as many as thirty-five years. Every day the commitment of staff, both short and long term, play an important role in the lives of many children, youth and families of our community. CASO will be further marking these milestones by highlighting staff throughout the month of June. Join the celebration; follow us on twitter @ OttawaCas.

From left, Overbrook Community Association president Sheila Perry and Mehdi Louzouaz, community developer with the Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre, officially opened the Overbrook Community Gardens on May 25. that houses all the tools to keep the gardens growing. Two of the wooden boxes are dedicated to the Rideau Rockcliffe Food Bank and five others are devoted to youth and families, said Perry, including Queen Mary Street and Queen Elizabeth public schools. Growing and tending the food will provide students with hands-on knowledge.

Other boxes are open to the community. “Anyone can come and volunteer,” said Perry. The association also welcomes donations in the form of funds, gardening supplies, tools, and vegetation and flowers. A master gardener has also donated his time to teach people how to properly care for the

plants. “It’s an opportunity for different community members to come together,” said Mehdi Louzouaz, community developer with the Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre.

EMC news - The T-shirts decorating the side of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre along Castlefrank Road are a symbolic gesture. Written on the clothes are messages from survivors of violence and abuse. On an infant’s white onesie are the words “Love shouldn’t hurt.” A bright purple shirt reads “Hands are for holding, not for hitting.” Written in coloured letters on a white background is this message of hope: “I know who I am and I am fabulous! You can’t put out my fire.” The Clothesline Project is an annual international event aimed at raising awareness about violence against women and children. The Tshirts provide thought-provoking and emotional messages. “It started (with) the idea of airing out your laundry, airing out your concerns,” said peer support program co-ordinator Jenn Wilks. “Their message is about strength and hope.” Boxes upon boxes of T-shirts have been collected by the resource centre over the years, with a collection now totalling more than 500 articles of clothing. Volunteers with the resource centre pinned

Your time is valuable. Spend it wisely.

“It’s about raising awareness,” said Wilks. Violence against women is still a common occurrence in the community. “It’s very prevalent,” she said. “We see cases of violence against women every day.” Through the resource centre, peer support volunteers are paired with women to act as friends and mentors, with whatever choices they make, said Wilks. “There’s no judgement.” The resource centre’s violence against women program offers support for residents living in the Kanata, Goulbourn, West Carleton, Rideau, Nepean, Osgoode and Bay wards. Services for victims of violence include peer and child witness support, transitional housing, counselling and Chrysalis House, a shelter for abused women and their families. For more information on the resource centre, visit wocrc. ca. The Clothesline Project began in Cape Cod, Mass. in 1990, before spreading worldwide, to address the issue of violence against women.

Brush and clay come together for annual art show Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Two rural Ottawa artists are once again coming together for an annual pottery and painting art show in Kars. North Gower painter Ann Gruchy and Kars artist Marie Paquette have become quite the team since they began â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of Brush and Clayâ&#x20AC;? in Paquetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home nine years ago. Now they tag-team the September Discovery Tour through rural south Ottawa, and this year will have a joint booth at the North Gower farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market. On June 8 and 9, though, customers can meet Paquette and Gruchy in the comfort of Paquetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home at 1584 Sobeau Ct. in Kars. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., both artists will have new works on display, including a small exhibit from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;kimonoâ&#x20AC;? theme. Gruchy and Paquette both created abstract pieces that evoke the essence of kimonos: colour blocking, ďŹ&#x201A;owing fabric and rich hues. Within the theme, the pair also switched medi-

Lemonade for Bryce

ums, as is tradition: Paquette took up the canvas while Gruchy experimented with clay. While the annual exercise has yielded some sales in the past, it mostly serves to push the artists out of their comfort zone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows me how difďŹ cult pottery is, how difďŹ cult ceramics is,â&#x20AC;? Gruchy said. Waiting seems to the hardest part. While Gruchy can paint up until the night before the show if she wants to, Paquetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medium requires patience while the clay dries and then is ďŹ red in the kiln several times over the span of a week or more. As a result, Paquette is much more accepting of her friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paint brush. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The year of the tulips (theme) I got carried away. I had done watercolours before and it was fun, so I painted all summer after the show,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I would say I love painting.â&#x20AC;? A part of sale proceeds will go the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. For more information visit anngruchy.com or mariepaquette.blogspot.com.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013

EMC news - Technology is slowly creeping into many elementary schools, but at Terry Fox Elementary School in OrlĂŠans, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sprinting. The school was recently recognized with a technological innovation award at the annual Ottawa Education Gala for integrating technology and involving students. Recently, students returned from the Skills Ontario competition in Waterloo for Grade 7 and 8 students, where they competed in robotics and video production. The students placed second in the robotics competition, nailing perfect scores on two of the three challenges, and the video production pair finished in fourth. It was a bit of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;David and Goliath effortâ&#x20AC;? said teacher Mehmet Yilmaz, who said the students were competing against several private schools which had purchased more expensive robotics kits to built their robots. Terry Fox was accepted because there were several open spots for teacher nominations, which Yilmaz made. Next year, once school activities are back in full swing, the students will have to win at the board level to be able to move onto the provincial competition. The students had a small time window to get everything ready, bringing in Lego pieces and parts from home to combine with school resources to build their robots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spent every recess and lunch working on it,â&#x20AC;? said Grade 7 student Kurt Lemay, a

member of the robotics team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We even spent a Saturday here.â&#x20AC;? The students had to craft robots that could take on three different challenges, each with 15 minutes to complete. They stumbled only on a challenge when the item to pick up was too heavy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so they pushed it along the track and guided their robot on the necessary path to win points. In the end, they finished only one point behind the first-place robotics team. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s robotics team isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only high-tech happening at Terry Fox. There is also a video game development club that Yilmaz runs, and a strong video production element mixed into several courses. Students produce videos on different math lessons, for example, which are posted online. They can then scan the barcode on different study units using a smartphone at home to call up the video and review the lesson. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve developed a partnership with Algonquin Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animation program, and intermediate students even produce the Terry Fox News. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s received grants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with students writing proposals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and projects funded by the parent council. With $5,000 in their pockets, Yilmaz hopes nex t year that students can take on a potential project, still under wraps, that would be a first for a Canadian elementary school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use technology to help students take ownership,â&#x20AC;? Yilmaz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re powerful tools that can be used to make a difference.â&#x20AC;?

Mary Cook’s Memories

W

oman, we have been eatin’ those on this here farm for a hundred years,” Father said to Mother. I could see she wasn’t impressed. “They’re weeds, Albert,” Mother said. “Plain and simple weeds. I never heard of anyone eating weeds.” We were at the breakfast table and we five children were looking at Mother and Father as if we were watching a tennis match. I didn’t think Father was going to win this one. The subject under discussion was dandelions. They covered what we called a lawn. It was really just our front yard, but since we didn’t own a lawn mower when the grass got too high, one of the brothers tackled it with a scythe. It was hard to tell what was grass and what was dandelions. On the way to school that morning, I asked my much older sister Audrey if she ever heard of anyone eating dandelions. She said she had once at her friend Iva’s house. She couldn’t remember what they tasted like. Now, it wasn’t unusual for Father to whip up a German meal. In fact, we all enjoyed what he cooked – except fried blood pudding which I even had trouble looking at when it came to the table. When he fried sauerkraut, it never tasted at all like the batch Mother would make.

Father would rinse it many times, put it in a fry pan with butter and chopped onions and it wasn’t ready to eat until it had turned a golden brown. His German potato pancakes were usually made on a Sunday night. The potatoes were shredded, rinsed, squeezed dry, and then mixed with eggs and of course, chopped onions. We kept him busy at the Findlay Oval turning out his pancakes barely giving him time to eat them himself, we loved them so much. Of course, they were well lathered with butter and maple syrup too. Now it was dandelions. Well, I was with Mother on this one – I had no desire to eat weeds that were pulled out of the front yard where goodness knows what animal had trampled all over them. No siree. That Saturday morning Father ordered the boys to meet him in the yard with their jackknives. He was carrying a milk pail and got down on his knees right in the middle of the yard and showed the brothers how to dig up a dandelion, right down to and including the root. It didn’t take long to fill the milk pail. He hauled the pail over to the cement step at the pump and filled it with water. He sloshed the dandelions around with his arm in the pail up to his elbow, dumped the water out, and repeated the performance. See MARY, page 47

ADVERTORIAL

Romanc Fireplaces and BBQs Inc. When Michael Pilon is behind the barbecue, expect to be treated to a symphony of flavour. Owner of Romantic Fireplaces and BBQ’s Inc., Michael is passionate about quality. That’s why he is so excited to be showcasing the Black Olive pellet grill, the world’s first pellet Kamado grill at local Farm Boy stores. “It’s all about combining the highest quality food with best taste and flavour. There is no product like the Black Olive and no better way to showcase it than with Farm Boy foods.” “We all remember the day when we made ‘the perfect steak’ cooked on a Hibachi charcoal grill. Convenience has most of us using a gas grill which tends to leave food tasteless and a bit dried out.” That’s where the Black Olive makes all the difference. “Finally, using the latest technology, the world’s first electric wood pellet Kamado style grill has been produced in Canada. The Black Olive grill has made it easy to have that great taste and flavour with the

push of a button!” For centuries in Japan, the Kamado style cooker has been the source of great meals. “This style of cooking reduces shrinkage and retains the moisture in foods, producing succulent, juicy steak, poultry and meats infused with the flavour of perfect wood pellet blends – maple, apple, cherry and hickory.” Not only does the Black Olive give food the best taste, cooking with the revolutionary grill is easy too. “The Black Olive does it all – smoking, baking, roasting, grilling and searing. Imagine enjoying your favourite wheel of brie, giant Portobello mushrooms or even pizza grilled to perfection with the amazing taste of wood pellets. It’s the best grilling experience ever!” Beautifully designed, easy to control, delicious results, and built to last – the Black Olive is durable and tough, able to withstand the most extreme climates and retain its good looks. No need to replace rusted out burners, the Black Olive ceramic grill will endure the harshest of cooking environments.

 

  Enter in store for a chance to win a grill-tastic BBQ bash for 20 of your closest friends and family. Prizes include the Black Olive BBQ, plus all the fixings – fresh food, professional grillers and craft beer for 20. ƒ Black Olive Grill with accessories ƒ Farm Boy™ fresh food for 20 people ƒ Grilling services from Pistol Packin’ Piggies ƒ Craft beer from Muskoka Brewery

The Black Olive’s patented design and shape gives it the ability to quickly achieve temperatures in excess of 650°F or as low as 150°F, making it perfect for smoking, baking, roasting, grilling and so much more. Never need to worry about overcooking or scorching your food again. Economical and healthier for the environment, pellet fuel gives food a more natural taste than gas or even charcoal. The pellet cooker takes the mystery out of fuel levels by providing a visual indication of how much fuel is in the grill at all times. Easily filled from the side hopper, the Black Olive is ideal for extended smokes and slow roasts.

Mary watches as dandelions enter kitchen Continued from page 43

Mother was standing at the kitchen door with her arms folded across her chest, as if defying Father to bring the weeds into the house. Well, that’s exactly what he intended on doing. He laid out a spanking clean tea towel on the bake table and shook what water he could off the dandelions and laid them out flat, cutting off the long roots. Then he folded the towel over the pile of weeds and patted it with his flattened hand. What amazed me was that all the time this was going on, there wasn’t a word spoken between Mother and Father. It was as if they hadn’t laid eyes on each in their entire lives. Father took down a big pot

from the shelf over the stove and piled in the dandelions. He poured in a scant dipper of water, sprinkled in a handful of salt and slid the pot to the front of the Findlay Oval. Then he went over to his rocking chair, lit his pipe, crossed his legs and waited. The table had already been set for dinner. We always had dinner at noon hour – supper was what we had at night, and Mother had roast pork and potatoes in the oven. It looked very much like we had a choice: either eat the dandelions as a vegetable, or settle for sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Father was certainly in charge of the big pot, already boiling gently on the stove. Mother was having nothing to

do with it. He tested the contents with a fork and when they were done to his liking, he poured the dandelions into the sieve, pressed them down with the wood spoon, and plopped them into a big bowl. He took the wood spoon, dug it into the butter dish, almost emptying it, and swirled it into the dandelions. He set the bowl in the middle of the table and we all looked at it, no one daring to be the first one to dig in. Emerson, the most daring of the lot of us, took his fork and tested one boiled leaf. I never took my eyes off him. He rolled it around in his mouth, and reached out for the bowl, ladling a heaping pile on his plate.

“Just as good as your potato pancakes,” he said. Well, it didn’t take long for the rest of us to take a small bite, which led to us piling the dandelions on our plates and even Mother, dared to taste a fork full. It didn’t take long for Mother to admit that the dandelions had a place on our dinner table. She did demand to oversee the washing of every last leaf, however. From that Saturday, like Father’s potato pancakes and fried sauerkraut, his boiled dandelions often found their way to our plates. She did, however, draw the line on eating the fried roots. Father said she didn’t know what she was missing. “I’ll take that chance,” Mother replied.

River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière

Congratulations to our PESKY SENS! What a Season! Congratulations to our Ottawa Senators for an exciting season and fantastic playoff run! In addition to enjoying excellent hockey, I was also pleased to see the positive impact that the extended season had on our many small businesses. I was especially thrilled to see River Ward resident Marc Methot playing in his hometown this season. As kids, Marc and his brother Matthieu enjoyed time on the local outdoor rink near Fielding Drive Public School. This rink is still going strong! How fun for kids today to dream about the NHL knowing that our very own “Minister of Defence” once set skate on this rink. If the playoffs are of any indication, we are in for an exciting 2013-2014 season. Now, about Alfie… one more season? Please? 700 Hunt Club Road Public Info Session As I mentioned in my column last month, the City has received a revised Site Plan application for 700 Hunt Club Road. Information regarding the new Site Plan application will be posted on ottawa.ca once it is received. I encourage you to review the documents and welcome your feedback. I am working on co-hosting a public information session with Councillor Deans later this month. Emerald Ash Borer Information Session Update Thank you to everyone who attended the Emerald Ash Borer (“EAB”) Information Session held earlier this week. If you could not attend this session and have any specific questions about the City’s EAB strategy, etc., please let me know. If infected Ash trees are identified on private property, you have different options to consider. You can pursue pesticide treatment, new tree planting or tree removal or a combination therein. These decisions depend on the age, health and location of the tree and should be made in consultation with a professional arborist. City staff would be happy to meet with you to determine if your Ash is on private property and to discuss options to address an infected tree. Please feel free to call my office and I would be happy to follow-up. Your Strong Voice at City Hall

R0141952654-0606

As always, I appreciate hearing from you and encourage you to keep in touch with me as it allows me to serve you better. It is an honour and a privilege being your strong voice at City Hall.

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Museums go big The Ottawa Museum Network launches the 2013 season for community musems by unveiling enormous banners at city hall on May 16. The network said partnerships and funding from the city helped the 10 member museums increase visitor numbers – more than doubling their numbers in just under a decade.

Minto park named for Manotick veteran Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - A new park will honour a long-time Manotick resident and World War II veteran. Major William Ross Chamberlain joined the Canadian Armed Forces in November 1941 and served in North-west Europe, Africa, Italy and IndoChina throughout the Second World War. When he returned home in 1946, he remained a regular member of the Canadian Army until 1962 when he retired and became a teacher. Chamberlain settled in Toronto after the war, but in 1958

moved his family to a house on Rideau Valley Drive just outside the small village of Manotick. Today, Minto Communities plans to build a neighbourhood park in his name just steps from his home of 38 years, in the new Mahogany development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our family is really happy about the park,â&#x20AC;? said Chamberlainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Deborah Rosenlund, during a public information meeting on May 30. The city was originally planning to name a street after her father, but a park is nicer, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our father was a dynamic gardener so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much better

than a street,â&#x20AC;? Rosenlund said. Minto is building its first substantial park in its Mahogany development as part of a front-end agreement with the city. Instead of having the city build the park, Minto will construct it and the city will pay it back. Major W. Ross Chamberlain Park, which is set to open this summer, is bordered by Bridgeport Street and Alabaster Heights where the CHEO dream home is currently under construction. It will include junior and senior play structures, a mini soccer field, a gathering place with a picnic table and some naturalized areas. A commemorative plaque

will explain some of Chamberlainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and importance to the village. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said these initiatives help tie new and old together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk about growth needing to enhance the village rather than detract from it, and I think this does that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about how you integrate new and old.â&#x20AC;? PARK FEATURES

The park will include a junior play structure for kids aged two to five and a senior play structure for kids aged five to 12. Both are acces-

sible, and the playground floor is made of a cedar wood fibre that is safer for falls and accessible for wheelchairs. Landscape architect Heather Martin, who helped design the park, said the team looked at Manotickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural features and considered Mahogany Bay an inspiration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought a nautical theme was appropriate and fun,â&#x20AC;? she told the small audience of mostly legion members on May 30. A set of four swings includes two belt swings, a toddler swing and a full-support accessible swing. A mini soccer field will also be available for local soccer leagues and

community use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city has identified a greater need for more sports fields in the Manotick area,â&#x20AC;? Martin explained. Several â&#x20AC;&#x153;birch nooksâ&#x20AC;? will add some nature and adventure to the park for kids, and will tie in some of the more natural landscape across the road along the creek. A pathway will cross through the park and connect to the creek and other phases of the Mahogany construction. City planner Diane Emmerson said parking is not an option for a park like this. Detailed park plans will be posted on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website in early June.

From June 14 to Sept. 2, the tall ships will travel to 16 Ontario ports, including Brockville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tall Ships 1812 Tour will be a spectacular way to mark a deďŹ ning moment in our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history,â&#x20AC;? said Michael Chan, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, in a press release. Among the early participants are two ships that provide a link to the War of 1812. They are the Pride of Baltimore II and Privateer Lynx,

both replica topsail schooners modelled after U.S. vessels that took part in the many sea battles of the war. Another is a truly tall tall ship is the SS Sorlandet, from Norway. At an impressive 890 tons, she is the oldest full rigged ship in the world still in operation. For information on the entire tour, visit Tallships1812.ca.

Bank Street BIA launches new marketing campaign Influx of downtown residents prompts new image Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - The Bank Street Promenade has been kicked to the soon-to-be-pressure-washed curb as the stripâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business improvement area prepares to put a new face on the district. The 1980s branding, which the Bank Street BIA admittedly never liked, will be removed and along with a spruced-up streetscape will be replaced with the slogan â&#x20AC;&#x153;Downtown. At the intersection of everything.â&#x20AC;? A new logo, a host of seasonal-themed promotional posters, and a determined BIA staff will all conspire to lure shoppers into Bank Street businesses. BIA members unveiled the new branding and campaign materials to media on May 29 at their temporary presentation centre at 226 Bank St. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LRT project and the recent influx of condo projects (and condo-

dwellers) in Centretown prompted the BIA to change its image and adopt a more aggressive approach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the new condos moving in, there is a much younger demographic, (and) weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to cater to that group,â&#x20AC;? Suzanne Racine, assistant director for the Bank Street BIA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a wall (in the presentation centre) of five things people want to see on Bank. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had tons of people come into the store to let us know what they want in the area. We are going to make a hotlist of things to have, and will be forwarding it to the property owners - and offering a $5,000 bonus to any property owner who signs a deal from the hotlist of stores we want.â&#x20AC;? Racine said the BIA wants to exert more control over the retail component of the area. In addition to the pressure washing, a painter will be employed to spruce up store frontages wherever possible, and businesses will be able to take advantage of the BIAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facade improvement grant program. The Bank Street BIA encompasses the 15-block stretch from Wellington Street to Gladstone Avenue and was formed in 1977. Before that, according to BIA co-chairman Stephen Tanner, a merchantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s asso-

When it formed and subsequently brought in the Bank Street Promenade branding, Ottawans were fleeing from the inner city to the expanding suburbs in droves. Now, the

opposite seems to be happening as younger people flood back into the downtown area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw the good days of Bank Street, which was a very vibrant place before the shopping malls came,â&#x20AC;? said Tanner, a life-long resi-

dent of the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Bank Street has taken a lead in making sure that all of the new condos and the new residentsâ&#x20AC;Śare going to be looked after. I honestly believe that now is the time for people to rent these stores along Bank and get in on the ground floor.â&#x20AC;? The extensive reconstruction of Bank Street a few years ago, which brought with it new streetscape and underground infrastructure, was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;necessary evilâ&#x20AC;? despite being challenging for businesses, said Racine, as it created the conditions required to bring thousands of new residents into Centretown. Racine said the BIA would like to see a flagship store enter the retail mix along Bank. Suggestions from the public have highlighted the need for a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing store, a hardware store or specialty deli and cheese shop. Five storefront vacancies currently exist along that stretch of Bank, ranging from 72 to 650 square metres. The rebranding campaign comes as the nearby Rideau Centre embarks on a large-scale expansion project, which is expected to wrap up before the completion of the downtown LRT line in 2017.

Elementary school adopts park next door Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Students at Des Sentiers elementary school will have the same opportunity that Sylvie Lalande did growing up across the street from the Nantes Street woods – to run and play in the forest. The land, originally used by the Lalande family farm in the 1800s, is now a city park which was adopted by the school. Students at the school will help keep Lalande Conservation Park clean and use the space, including the outdoor classroom. The parent council, lead by Élizabeth Bengle, worked with the Lalande family to come up with ideas for how the park should be developed. Students provided input on what they wanted to see, and the architect crafted a sculpture out of found materials the family pulled out of the woods while cleaning it up this spring. The project has been three years in the making.

Four generations of the Lalande family live in the Orléans and Cumberland area, with Lalande’s father living a short walk away from the park. FOUR GENERATIONS

The land, originally used for the Lalande farm, has been sold several times but now belongs to the city. “It touches us to be a part of this project.. it’s a treasure,” Lalande told students and teachers at the school. “A dream for my family has been realized.” Members of the family, along with high school students from Beatrice Desloges and Louis Riel, helped with a cleanup this spring to make sure the park would be in prime condition for its opening. Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau said the family is “an ordinary family who worked hard,” and deserves to have the recognition of a park naming. The park is specifically designed for environmental

learning, and Des Sentiers students have been planting trees, said Coun. Stephen Blais. Originally, the parent council had the idea to fundraise to clean up the park and make it usable for the students, Bengle said. But the city agreed to make it a city park, and funded the creation. Moving forward, Bengle said the community needs to be aware that it’s now a park and not use it for dumping any types of yard waste. The variety of yard waste has made the area prime for poison ivy to grow, something that the volunteers and city hope to have removed shortly. In the meantime, users should avoid straying off the pathways in the wooded areas. Neighbours of the Nantes Street school will be able to access the park, as it is city property. “I think it’s really cool and people will use it a lot,” said Des Sentiers Grade 5 student Julie Eisnor. “I love parks, and I just really like to play outside.”

Young students are all smiles as their class heads through the first walk of the Lalande Conservation Park, located right next to Des Sentiers elementary school.

Play structure opening a community celebration Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Thanks to the support of the community, Manotick Public School held a grand opening for two new play structures on May 25. In only 20 months, the school was able to fundraise $60,000 to replace both the kindergarten and the grade school age play structures. “The local community has been very generous with us,” said Emma Kinnaird, fundraising co-ordinator for the school council. At first, the school was only supposed to lose its kindergarten structure, but upon further inspection, the school age playground set was also closed. “It was a bit of a surprise,” said Rob Maxwell, chair of the school council. But thanks to a number of individuals, families and businesses, the school was able to raise enough to replace both play structures – with a little left over. “Nothing this significant has happened at this school in such a short time,” said Maxwell. The school will build an outdoor classroom with the left over funds, so students can take advantage of learning outside. Principal Andrew Nordman said

the results of the fundraising are a “grand accomplishment” for the school. “I know how difficult it was to see over the course of 2011 to see the play structures come down,” he said during the grand opening of the new structures. “The heart of the Manotick community came together. I’m extremely proud of this community and it’s commitment to this school.” Seven-year-old Finley Kinnaird, a Grade 1 student at the school, was given the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially declare the play structures open. “This is a remarkable and noteworthy accomplishment,” said Nordman.

Seven-year-old Finley Kinnaird, a Grade 1 student at Manotick Public School, tests out the new slide at the school during a grand opening celebration for a new play structure at the school on May 25. The school raised $60,000 in 20 months to replace the kindergarten and grade school jungle gyms. JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND

Geologic questions raised about proposed landfill site Continued from page 3

Their biggest concern, coalition volunteer and geological engineer Harry Baker said, was the geology of the site and the risk of earthquakes, particularly in that location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very active area seismically,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for us to know.â&#x20AC;? Many small earthquakes have been documented close to the Boundary Road landďŹ ll site, according to historical data, but most would never be felt by people living there. Baker noted that however small, these are not insigniďŹ cant earthquakes, as it indicates there is continued stress build and stress release in the underlying rocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The geological conditions at the proposed Boundary Road landďŹ ll, such as a 30-metre thick layer of Leda clay in a seismically active zone in which earthquakes of magnitude 6 have occurred could seriously jeopardize a well-engineered facility,â&#x20AC;? states an executive summary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That becomes an even more credible possibility if there are faults within a few hundred metres of the site, which could, in turn, amplify the threat to people and the environment.â&#x20AC;? Sue Langlois, president of the coalition, told those in attendance the landďŹ ll site will receive waste from as

take a leadership role . . . those are the messages we wanted to convey.â&#x20AC;? According to their website, Taggart Miller says the primary focus of the proposed landďŹ ll is to divert waste materials away from disposal, and to provide this in a facility the city currently doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This multi-million dollar green industrial development will provide eastern Ontario with a leading-edge diversion facility that addresses the critical need for better recycling, composting and environmental stewardship,â&#x20AC;? states their website. They also report their project will insert an estimated $100 million over the life of the project, as well as increase municipal tax revenue, and provide employment opportunities. An open house for the project took SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND place this on June 5 at the Carlsbad Capital Region Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment Community Centre.

member Sue Langlois speaks during the presentation of the proposed landfill, citing the many concerns residents have with regards to the Taggart Miller-lead project. far as Belleville and encouraged the City of Ottawa to put restrictions on this. While the landďŹ ll will accept 300,000 to 400,000 tonnes of industrial, commercial and institutional waste annually, Langlois said the issue the community has is not related to the capacity or size of the landďŹ ll,

but rather the fact the province does not appear to have strict guidelines on diversion rates for this type of waste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our reputation on the line,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to be known as the city that has the biggest dumps. It goes against a green and liveable Ottawa. We want the City of Ottawa to

COUNCILLOR OPPOSES LANDFILL

After the presentation, Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais, who recently returned to city council, voiced his opposition to the proposed landďŹ ll, mainly due to the fact the province, he said, does not have any concrete standards for industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) waste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a supporter of this project,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Blais.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have standards for municipal housing waste, but none for ICI waste. It just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a lot of sense to me.â&#x20AC;? The province, he said, has control over the management of this type of waste, and should have a recycling target of at least 60 per cent to avoid the need for a landďŹ ll. The project, which is in the environmental assessment approval process, would place signiďŹ cant risks on the surrounding area, states the coalition. We have real concerns the environment would be put at risk including negative impacts on local well water, surface water, air quality, protected wildlife/forested areas and agricultural areas,â&#x20AC;? the coalition states in a letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of particular importance is the long-term adverse effects on the residents of three villages in close proximity to the proposed CRRRC, which would be Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest landďŹ ll.â&#x20AC;? The group also believes Taggart Miller has not fully addressed the issues or acknowledged the risks associated with developing on the site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that such a facility would be a serious mistake that the City of Ottawa cannot afford,â&#x20AC;? said the coalition.

Sparkle the dragon taking off Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Sparkle’s taking a holiday, but first the Osgoode dragon needs guidance from the wisest villagers of all: kids. For the second year, kids under 16 can envision an adventure for the Osgoode Medieval Festival’s firebreathing mascot, Sparkle, as part of a creative writing and art contest. This year’s theme will send Sparkle on a holiday, either through a piece of artwork or a written story. Winners will take home a bag of King’s gold: $30 for first prize and $20 for second. Organizer Lesley Wilson said this year’s contest is more inclusive, allowing children who can not read or write to have their stories transcribed, as long as the transcriber agrees not to edit the text. Those who prefer to recreate Sparkle’s adventure visually can use any medium they like: a drawing, collage, embroidery or a quilt will all be given equal weight.

The submissions must be postmarked June 15, and judges will make their decisions in time for the festival’s education day on Friday, July 12. All of the submissions will be on display throughout the festival, which runs from July 12 to 14. Wilson said she hopes the contest will broaden some horizons. “We wanted to ... encourage kids to use their own imagination and do some research,” she said. “If Sparkle is going on a holiday they’d have to give some thought to where and what Sparkle would need, and what the impact of that visit might be.” Wilson said Sparkle - who is not identified by gender - encompasses love, empathy and peace. By sending the small-town dragon into the wider world, Sparkle may be exposed to some diversity and might have to interact with different cultures, Wilson said. “What we’re trying to do is have them put themselves into Sparkle’s (head),” she added.

Writers and artists can choose to identify a gender for Sparkle, but it’s not necessary, Wilson said. The sixth annual Osgoode Medieval Festival draws thousands of visitors to the market square on Osgoode Main Street every year. The weekend event includes professional jousting, dancing, sword play, kids’ games, live music, a horseshoe competition and vendors. A King’s Feast on Saturday night will provide a rollicking evening of entertainment, with a high possibility of intrigue and betrayal unfolding right in front of guests’ eyes. Education Day on Friday, July 12 invites children ages four to 14 to learn about medieval chivalry, armour, music and more. For more information about the creative arts contest contact Wilson at shoe.bag001@gmail.com. For information about the festival visit osgoodemedievalfestival.com, call Judy Carey at 613-826-1622 or email info@osgoodemedieval festival.com.

Low meeting turnout means association is working: resident Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Low turnout at the Manotick Village and Community Association’s annual general meeting could just be a sign that the association’s doing a good job. That was the sentiment from several residents who came to the Manotick legion on Tuesday, May 28 to hear from their association and get updates on community issues. About 25 people came out to the meeting, including Rideau-Goulbourn Scott Moffatt who congratulated the board on pushing forward with important village projects and for offering residents a chance to give feedback on the city’s official plan review earlier this spring. “The MVCA and our office have been working closely on many things,” Moffatt said. Before breaking into a feedback

exercise about how MVCA’s performance, past president Brian Tansley brought forward a motion to exempt the board from needing an audit. According to provincial law, any organization with revenues less than $100,000 annually can bypass an audit if all members agree. Tansley put forward his motion to vote on the matter at the AGM in lieu of getting written consent from every member, adding that the documents would now be required to be posted on the association’s website for everyone to see at any time of day. “It’s not that we’re not concerned with being transparent, but that the cost of an audit is quite onerous,” said Tansley, who estimated a professional audit would cost three times the association’s annual income. But resident Rich Wilson took issue with the motion. He said the law states clearly that the MVCA’s more than 330 members would need to

provide written consent every year – a virtually impossible task. “In an organization of this size, if I was the treasurer and you said we don’t want an audit, then I’m out of here,” Wilson said. Unfortunately Wilson’s remarks – including his point that the audit doesn’t have to be done by a professional - landed him the job of auditing the association’s books next year. Wilson took the job in stride, although he good-naturedly admitted he’s by no means an accountant. He’ll be responsible for looking over the books and checking bank records against the balance sheet. Tansley was happy with the result, and withdrew his motion. “When Rich said it, it made sense,” Tansley said. WHAT’S WORKING

Vice-president Pierre Viau led the

group in an exercise to determine what’s working, what’s not working and what’s missing from the association’s activities. Using sticky notes, the group overwhelmingly agreed that communication to members and community activities like Shiverfest, Picnic in the Park and the soapbox derby are definitely working. One resident suggested that more events could be added, including a community garage sale. Several people mentioned that the association’s membership drive is not yet working, and that more members and participants are needed. Advocacy work on truck and traffic issues through the village also came up under the “not working” column because the slow process has yet to see results with the city. Under the “missing” category, residents noted that more volunteers are needed, as well as more partnerships

with local schools and community organizations. A boat launch near the library branch is also missing, as is an outdoor music venue. One gentleman mentioned the absence of chickens: while CLUCK Ottawa has been working for several years to allow urban chicken coops, so far the city has not moved on the issue. NEW MEMBERS

Vice-president of events Jan Hynes resigned from the board, and was replaced by Allan Haan, who organizes the soapbox derby every August. Hynes said she will still be involved in the events, but it was time to change things up. Haan said he was pleased to take on the position but appealed to the room for continued help in planning and executing events, as they have done in the past.

Care centre committee busier than ever Summer events stacking up as fundraising continues Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - It may look like a hen party, but it’s closer to a bee hive at the Osgoode Care Centre’s weekly community relations committee meetings. Ideas fly back and forth and discussion slips easily from serious work to playful teasing and back again. The 12-member volunteer committee, led by the care centre’s director of community relations Wendy Hill, has been busier than ever this year as the care centre continues to fundraise toward its $500,000 goal for home improvements. Since last September the committee has launched a memorial wish tree, held its “Busting out the Brews” blues and beer tasting night and, most recently, hosted a community garage sale at the Lions Den in Metcalfe. But with summer season upon us the women aren’t slowing down. Various members have plans to drop in on community events across

the region to promote the care centre and make partnerships, and the group is busy working on a firemen’s calendar with the help of the volunteer firefighters at Station 91 in Metcalfe. The photo shoots begin in June, but the monthly models won’t be as scantily clad as some might (want to) imagine. Instead, the firefighters will partner with residents at the care centre to take funny and ironic photos: for instance, one month might feature a resident driving the fire truck while a firefighter tries to catch up. “We’ll keep it tasteful but with a bit of humour,” said Hill. “A tiny bit of humour, a little bit of risk.” She said the calendars will benefit the fire station as much as the care centre, and will promote community partnerships. “It’s promoting the fire station and the care centre working together,” Hill said. “We’re supporting each other.” The calendars will be ready for sale in August, and the group is looking for monthly page sponsors. The committee is also working on plans for a lighthouse reunion party in Osgoode on July 27. Music and dancing will bring back memories for many residents who used to dance the night away at the old dance hall along the river.

With hot weather hitting the city, the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) is warning Ottawans that leaving a dog in a car even for a few minutes on a hot day could be fatal. Leaving a dog in a car even for a few minutes on a hot day could be fatal. Each year the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) receives hundreds of calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot summer days. When the thermometer soars, a parked car can quickly become a furnace, endangering an animal’s life and making the owner liable to criminal charges. With only hot air to breathe, a dog’s normal cooling process – panting – doesn’t work. A dog can withstand internal body temperatures of 40°C for only a few minutes before brain damage or death can occur. Last year alone, the OHS received more than 300 calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot days. These calls resulted in OHS Rescue and Investigation Services issuing 136 warnings and advisories to dog owners, removing 8 dogs from cars, and charging 9 individuals, resulting in 8 convictions.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa launches third annual Tribuddy program to help train underprivileged children in swimming, cycling and running On May 7, 2013, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa (BBBSO) launched the third annual Tribuddy program which matches youth between the ages of 8 and 14 with volunteer adult triathletes to help train in swimming, cycling and running. Since 2011, BBBSO has matched more than 30 underprivileged youth with adult triathletes and this year, Tribuddy has 16 matches, up from 11 in 2012. “We are very proud of the difference we have made in the lives of the youth involved in our program. Our adult buddies have also benefited from the program and in most cases have continued their participation,” says Gerry Thauvette, founder of the Tribuddy program. The goal of BBBSO’s Tribuddy program is to foster a positive and fun triathlon learning experience, and inspire youth to become active. “The best part of this program is being able to have fun and enjoy doing something,” says Mackenzie Prince, a third-year Tribuddy youth. “I won my first ever medal last year in the mountain biking category, but my favourite part is running.” The Tribuddy program’s success wouldn’t be possible without the support of local sponsors including Bushtukah, Mizuno and Zoot, as well as the help from volunteers. But, BBBSO is still short on supplies. To help the 16 participating children, BBBSO needs to raise $3,600 or receive the necessary gear, including bicycles, helmets, running shoes, and running clothes. If you’re interested in donating equipment, or would like more information about the Tribuddy program, please contact Jennifer Mitchell at 613-247-4776 ext. 317 or jennifer.mitchell@ bigbrothersbigsisters.ca.
