EMC sports - Ottawa’s Oluseyi Smith has won a spot on Canada’s men’s 4x100-metre relay team heading to the 2012 London Olympics this summer. The Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club member won a bronze medal at the track and field trials held in Calgary on July 1, running the 100-metre dash with a career-best time of 10:22 seconds. It was the fastest 100 metres of Smith’s career. The 25-year-old former student at Fielding Drive Public School and Brookfield High School in south Ottawa considers qualifying for London as his greatest atheletic achievement. “Canada has a lot of good sprinters – young ones and even older ones that are still competing today,” said Smith. “For me to finish third at a national championship, is a good achievement because I was ahead of a lot of good sprinters. Another Ottawa runner, Oluwasegun Makinde, who attended Colonel By Secondary School in Gloucester, was also named to the team. Smith’s running career began while in Grade 5 at Fielding Drive where he was actively involved in track and field. “I was doing track and field in elementary school,” said Smith. See SMITH, page 3

Hume mounts campaign against beetle Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - The emerald ash borer beetle is eating Ottawa’s ash trees and one city councillor is determined to educate his ward about the deadly beetle. After releasing the first of three new short videos created by his staff about the emerald scourge, Hume has now placed educational signs around Alta Vista with hopes of helping guide residents to the new emerald ash borer (EAB) web page put together by his of-

fice. The signs depict a large emerald ash borer beetle and say, “The EAB Could Be In Your Tree”—the tagline for Hume’s entire summer emerald ash borer educational campaign. “This situation is very grave - you can’t stop this beetle you can only manage the infestation and therefore the sooner you know that you have the beetle the sooner we can take action,” said Hume. Forty signs went out into the community, strung around trees at intersections where cars and pedestrians will see

them. In three to four weeks, the signs will be moved to other areas in the ward. “The reason is simple residents need to know about this scourge - and that is why I have created the entire EAB campaign from my cool videos to the very visible signs - to increase awareness,” said Hume. “With awareness comes the ability to assist the city in managing this environmental pest.” The entire EAB Could Be In Your Tree campaign was begun by Hume to augment efforts already made by his office

to better educate the Alta Vista community—an area of town where ash trees are numerous and badly hit by the beetle. More public education strategies about the emerald ash borer are on their way later this summer, said Hume’s office. The campaign aims to educate residents, said Hume, and make sure that they have the correct information so that they can help the city fight this beetle and hopefully manage the infestation and extend the life of ash trees.

HEAD HELD HIGH

Now that he has qualified, Smith’s next mission is to help Team Canada win a medal in London, and he’s hopefully they can make it to the medals podium. “I think we have got a legitimate chance to surprise

“For me it is a dream come true but also an opportunity for me to evaluate how good of an athlete I am compared to other athletes from the world,� he said. PROUD TO REPRESENT CANADA

But most of all, Smith said he is proud to represent the country he loves most. “It feels good to represent Canada and I just hope I can represent to the best of my ability and make every one proud at home,� said Smith, who is a graduate in electrical engineering and holds a master’s degree in renewable energy technology. At the Olympics, Smith said he knows he will be competing against the best athletes across the world. “So how I perform there will show me how much more work I need to do to be good as I can be,� said Smith.

“But while in Grade 5, one of my teachers told me to join the Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club, one of the largest and the most successful athletics club in Canada,� said Smith. “Ever since then I have been a member of the club and doing track and field outside of school.� Smith has previously represented Canada at two world championships in South Korea and Germany. He has also competed for Canada at the Commonwealth Games in India in 2010. He says the best performance he has had so far was when he helped Canada’s relay team finish fifth in the 2009 world championships final held in Berlin.

I don’t think that is an unattainable goal.� Smith was one of the 40 athletes who have been put forth to the Canadian Olympic Committee for nomination to the 2012 Canadian Olympic team by Athletics Canada. In a statement Alex Gardiner, Athletics Olympic Games head coach said, “This is the largest Olympic team Athletics Canada has selected in recent history. The trials in Calgary proved to be the crucible we wanted to test our readiness for London.� Smith hopes Canadians will turn up in big numbers to cheer on their teams. “I hope when it is time for us to race at the Olympics, many people in Canada will be tuning in to watch us,� he said. As an athlete, Smith has always dreamed of competing in the Olympics.

CHEO launches new mental health website

Canada’s history lights up National Capital Commission

The National Capital Commission is presenting a sound and light show using the centre block of the Parliament Buildings as a viewing screen this summer.

‘The world is changing. And this is a good thing’: Alex Munter Staff

EMC news – The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario saw the largest demand ever for its mental health services in the 2011-12 ďŹ scal year, prompting the hospital to launch a mental health website on July 9. Hospital administration says the past year has been the busiest year in CHEO’s almost 40 year history. CHEO has seen an almost 50 per cent increase in the

number of visits to the emergency department for mental health-related crises in the last two years, and an 86 per cent increase in outpatient referrals. As a result, the hospital said more than 760 children and youth are on the waiting list to see a CHEO clinician and wait times have increased from about two or three months, to six to 12 months. High-risk behaviours – including imminent suicide risks – are also increasing

among children brought to the hospital. That number jumped 22 per cent, the hospital said. CHEO suggests the increase is at least partially caused by the removal of the stigma surrounding mental illness, which has prompted more parents to seek assistance. According to CHEO, the new website is designed to provide children, youth and families with tools to encourage healthy discussion of the topic. “Although we still have a ways to go before talking about your mental illness is like talking about your cancer or your asthma, one thing is clear,� Alex Munter, president

and chief executive ofďŹ cer, CHEO said in a statement. “The world is changing. And this is a good thing. “With early intervention and treatment we can change the entire trajectory of young people’s lives forever altering both their physical and mental health and their life expectations.â€? CHEO, the Royal and the Youth Services Bureau are working with other community organizations to expand the reach of mental health services, reduce wait lists, identify critical gaps and help more families in the community.

Fire services spokesperson Marc Messier said it was “a standard car fire” and no one was injured. While Messier said its impossible to know the cause, it was not the result of a collision, he said. “It can be a number of things: a wire issue, a mechanical issue, an overheated brake,” he said.

Student nails startup money for business eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Tired of working for someone else? Twenty-one-year-old Justin Assaly suggests you start your own business. Assaly, a second-year student in international development at the University of Ottawa, is one of the 14 lucky Ottawa-area students selected to participate in Summer Company, a province-wide program that helps young entrepreneurs launch and manage successful businesses. The former Hillcrest High School student is running a construction company in Alta Vista called Flex, with services ranging from the construction of decks and fences to drywall and painting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to start my own business this summer and branch off from working for somebody else and see if I could do it on my own,â&#x20AC;? Assaly said. Assaly said he chose construction because it is something heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been doing every summer for the past five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked it because it is something I know how to do and it runs in the family as well,â&#x20AC;? said Assaly. Delivered through Invest Ottawa, the program is designed to help young entre-

preneurs develop, plan and execute a successful business venture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is really interesting. It is a good opportunity and a good learning experience for me because it is teaching me a lot of different skills especially with the mentors that come in,â&#x20AC;? Assaly noted. Participants are eligible for up to $3,000 to ease startup expenses including $1,500 awarded upon completion of the program and return to school. Students are selected based on the quality of their business plan and their personal commitment to their vision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt good when I got the acceptance,â&#x20AC;? said Assaly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an honour and I am trying to do my best to follow through and make things work.â&#x20AC;? Micheal Burnatowski, a spokesperson with Invest Ottawa, said with close to 200 applications for the program this year itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that there is an appetite for entrepreneurship amongst students today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though the program lasts only a few months, Summer Company helps students develop transferable skills that will last a lifetime,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether these students choose to keep their businesses going or pick it up again after finishing school, we are confident that their experience

this summer will give them a solid base from which to launch their next big idea.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the funding, Assaly receives strategic business assistance as well as oneon-one support and advice from mentors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have biweekly meetings with different mentors from different professions. I am happy I am part of it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Assaly has been spending most of his time advertising his company with hopes of getting as many jobs as he can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is pretty difficult to start. You have to do a lot of advertising and really get yourself out there, but once you start getting jobs, then it starts to spread, then you get more work that way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about getting the first couple of jobs,â&#x20AC;? he said. Assaly recommends youth seize every opportunity that comes their way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get out there and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to try and do something original and productive,â&#x20AC;? he said. Summer Company has been offered by the Ministry of Economic Development and Innovation every summer since 2000.

Bike helmet debate requires us to use our heads

R

ules, rules, rules. The government always seems to be coming up with laws telling us what to do. Have a life-jacket handy when you’re travelling in a boat, buckle up when you’re in a car, don’t drink and drive. Now, Ontario’s chief coroner is recommending the provincial government make it illegal to bike without wearing a helmet. Well, come on.

Just think of the arguments against such an absurd suggestion. First, people would have to spend upwards of $20 to buy a helmet. Twenty dollars that would be better spent on important items such as racing stripes to decorate bicycles or a new set of iPod headphones for those long cycling trips. Another argument against forcing people to buy bike helmets is the cool factor – or

rather lack thereof. Bike helmets put a dent in whatever type of fashion statement you’re going for and prevent people from allowing their long Fabio-esque hair from flowing in the wind. And if that isn’t enough, helmets sometimes feel hot while cycling on warm summer days. OK, OK, yes a bike-helmet law will save people’s lives. Recently, an 18-year-old who wasn’t wearing a helmet

died after crashing into a post in Kanata. Every single one of the cycling deaths in the province between 2006 and 2010 was preventable, according a report from the office of the chief coroner. According to the report only 27 per cent of the 129 people killed while cycling were wearing helmets. Only four provinces in Canada have cycling helmet safety laws for people of all

ages. Ontario and Alberta require people under the age of 18 to wear helmets. When the question of a bike-helmet law hits Queen’s Park, MPPs will have to balance two arguments; voters distaste for the “nanny state” and the need to introduce legislation that could potential save lives. If you accept the argument that helmets will save people’s lives, then maybe we

should move on to the next question: how do we encourage people to obey such a law. Promotional campaigns, such as Ottawa Public Health’s Adopt a Helmet contest which offers prizes to youth ages 13 to 24 who are photographed wearing a helmet, are a good start. Education will be the cornerstone of any intelligent campaign aimed at getting people to wear bike helmets.

COLUMN

Why city beats cottage, and vice versa CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

A

side from it being too hot most of the time, we have it pretty good in the summer, not having to worry about grammar or dressing up for work. There are great things going on in the city and the usual bounty of natural wonders out by the lakes. The pressure to indulge in cottaging is intense. More and more we are hearing that the cottage is what defines us as Canadians. This makes it tough on people who worry about poison ivy, swimmer’s ear, raccoons and all the other side-effects of lakeside living. What people like this would really like to do is stay home in the air conditioning and let someone else worry about the mosquitos. And who’s to say that they should not have the opportunity? Every Canadian has the right to a guilt-free summer of their choosing. In that spirit, here, as a public service, is a summary of the pros and cons of summer in the city and summer at the lake. Pros of staying in the city: You don’t have to fight the traffic getting out. You have the place pretty much to yourself. There are seats on the buses and at restaurants. Except for kids soccer night, your street is quiet. There are festivals of all sorts, which you can really enjoy as long as you are adaptable. For example, you should be adaptable enough not to expect blues at the blues festival. The city has air conditioning. The country just has air. The city has restaurants, where you can go if you feel like eating something that hasn’t been

on a barbecue. You don’t have to drive back to the city. The Internet. Cons of staying in the city: If you don’t leave town, you will have to listen to friends telling you how great it was at the cottage. And look at photographs of fish. On their phones. In the city you will have newspapers – in other words, unrelenting gloom. You will have to do something about the part of the garden that hasn’t been eaten by squirrels. All your friends are gone and the only thing on television is reruns. Work. Construction. The Internet. Pros of heading to the country: The joy of the open road. Sunset and the sound of loons. The sounds of splashing and children’s laughter. A moratorium on the need to improve yourself, the freedom to read a mystery, to take a nap and eat stuff that isn’t strictly healthy. Rustic bliss and losing track of what’s going on in the world. Seeing real animals. If the roof doesn’t leak, a good storm. The cons of visiting the country: A truck ahead of you on the open road, passing another truck, which is behind a trailer. Construction. Sunrise and the sound of crows. The sounds of personal watercraft and somebody’s sound system across the lake. Trying to smile and pretend you are not sick of corn on the cob. Things that might be bears that make a loud noise just when you’re trying to go to sleep. Where can you find a sudoku in this rustic bliss? No matter where you are, you will, unless you are a very secure sort of person, be nagged by the suspicion that others, elsewhere, are having a better time than you. Just remember that they’re thinking the same thing.

Bridlewood resident turns 100 years old â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I wish it would start all over againâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Laura Gerylo never envisioned living a century. Friends and family came together on July 9 to celebrate her 100th birthday at the Bridlewood Retirement Residence in the South Keys area where Gerylo has lived for the past three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought I would live to celebrate 100 years,â&#x20AC;? said Gerylo. She may be 100 years old, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop her from doing what she wants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I worked hard all my life, and I get bothered when I am

restricted,â&#x20AC;? said Gerylo. Gerylo was born in 1912 in Chelmsford near Sudbury, Ont. and is the only surviving sibling (of 11). She was born, a year after the Great Porcupine fire of 1911, one of the most devastating forest fires ever to strike the Ontario northland. Gerylo said she is fortunate enough to be marking a milestone. During her early years, Gerylo worked in mines in Sudbury and remembers how men hated working with females. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like having us around because we always wanted to keep the floors

clean. It is funny we were not even paid like men,â&#x20AC;? she said. She later moved to Sault Ste.Marie, Ont. where she worked as a cook at a prisoner of war camp. One hundred years may seem to be a long time, but for Gerylo the years have flown by and they have been a really good time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish (it) would start all over again,â&#x20AC;? she said. Family and friends know her as an active lady. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is a wonderful lady,â&#x20AC;? said Sandie Nault, community relations manager at Bridlewood Retirement Residence.

Community associations free of lobbyist registry laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A plan to exempt community associations from a planned city lobbyist registry may still hit a few snags. They city’s finance and economic development committee endorsed a plan for the registry on July 6, with some changes over the strict version presented last December. At that time, community associations were included

and would have had to publicly register all communications with city councillors and city managers. The updated guidelines are more nuanced. Professional lobbyists hired by community associations would still be considered a lobbyist but the new rules would provide a clear distinction between “lobbying” and “advocacy.” Guy Giorno, a lawyer who specializes in lobbyist registries, told councillors the amendments were a good idea

that went too far. He said it excludes businesses lobbying on “broad policy issues,” including things like the nonsmoking bylaw. That didn’t sit will with several councillors, including Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, who drafted a motion aimed at removing that exemption when it relates to business interests. The motion city lawyers wrote didn’t quite hit the point, Deans said, and committed to working on it and presenting it at council

on July 11 instead. The rules describe advocacy as communicating for or against a policy or program “where the primary focus is a broad community benefit or detriment, whether citywide or local.” Lobbying is defined as communicating with a public office holder “who is paid or represents a business or financial interest with the goal of trying to influence any legislative action including the development, introduction, passage, defeat, amendment or repeal of a by-law, motion, resolution or the outcome of a decision.” COMMUNTY ASSOCIATION DEFINITION

Since community associations will be exempted, councillors had asked for a definition of what constitutes a community association. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said that distinction is especially important in his ward, where there are two community associations that

have only two members that claim to represent their greater communities. Other areas of the city share that concern said Beacon HillCyrville Coun. Tim Tierney. “There is no qualifying material required … you can send and email with a link and you get put on the website,” Tierney said. As noted in the city staff report, “The City of Ottawa does not have a formal definition of a community association as many groups operate in the city in various capacities and with varying levels of formality.” While the report on the lobbyist registry did contain a definition, it was for information only and not adopted as an official definition by the city. That work will continue as part of the mid-governance review in the fall, Mayor Jim Watson said. For information in the meantime, city staff offered the definition used by the Federation of Urban Neighbourhoods (Ontario) as “any voluntary, not-for-profit, com-

munity organization that has the objective of serving the interests of a geographically-defined urban area in the Province of Ontario” and the Federation of Community Associations of Ottawa’s bylaw provides that membership in the federation is extended to “any non-profit, voluntary community, neighbourhood, property owners’, tenants’ or other association or group based in Ottawa having as its objective to serve community interests.” COMMITTEE OF ADJUSTMENT

With that concern mostly remedied, councillors turned their attention to other issues, including how the registry could impact how developments are carried out in the city. Deans worried that a requirement to disclose communications with senior city staff and councillors would create a push for more zoning changes to go through the committee of adjustment, which is reserved for changes of a minor nature, rather than a fully vetted process through the city’s planning committee. As it stands, members of the committee of adjustment wouldn’t be covered by the new rules, top city lawyer Rick O’Connor said, but he committed to drafting a way to include them by the time council was set to vote on the matter on July 11. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli said some of these issues could be alleviated if the city’s lobbying and development industries hop on board with the intent of the registry: to promote transparency and openness in city government.

Bushpilots bring stripped down sound to Bluesfest Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Sean Sisk

The Bushpilots will perform at Bluesfest on Sunday, July 15.

EMC entertainment - A local band is returning to the Bluesfest stage with a “pure,” “stripped down” version of itself. Manotick-based band The Bushpilots already considers itself a child of pure rock and roll – taking after the Rolling Stones, the Clash and the EStreet Band – but their new album and third Bluesfest show will attempt to get even closer to their roots. “In the past we tended to think ‘big show, lots of special guests.’ This time it’s simply a stripped down Bushpilots show, a pure Bushpilots show. There’s no bells and whistles on it at all,” explained frontman Rob Bennett, who lives on Long Island in Manotick. The 10-year-old band will take the Claridge Stage at 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 15, the last day of the annual twoweek music festival at the Canadian War Museum. The band previously played the festival in 2008 and 2010 on smaller stages. Bennett expects about 40 per cent of the show to come

PET OF THE WEEK

from their brand new album, Swerve, which was released about a month ago and is their fourth since 2005. He said the album also represents a stripped down version of the band, with just the core band and an upbeat attitude making an appearance. The album’s name was inspired by a Jeff Bridges quote coupled with the fact that all of the band members have experienced major positive changes in their professional and personal lives since the last album was released in 2009. “A lot of the songs (on the new album) are about taking control of your life and trying something completely different, swerving off in a different direction,” Bennett explained. “We all swerved. We’re actually all in a very good spot right now.” The band came together in 2002, and since then has gained some “local notoriety,” Bennett said. The five members all subscribe to “analog rock and roll” – a sound that reflects the artful, gritty vinyl records they all grew up with in the 1960s and 1970s. “As far as the sounds go, they all come from old tube amps, old effects pedals, old guitars, old keyboards. It’s organic. We like to really convey a strong sense of that,” Bennett said.

MAX

Local music critics have compared the band to the Tragically Hip, 54-40 and The Rolling Stones. Bennett noted that while the band doesn’t have high hopes for huge record sales – he accepts that listeners aren’t buying albums like they used to – the band tries to put out a quality album that reflects a

Pet Adoptions RAPHAEL ID#A142138

Max is a neutered male, black and white Domestic Shorthair cat who is about seven years old. Max came to the shelter on April 23 but is now available for adoption. This beautiful boy is declawed on his front paws and he loves to roll around on the floor while you pet him. He has a patient and easy going disposition: he gets along well with other cats and he has lived with rabbits previously. Max would rather not live with really young children as he prefers a quieter environment with a family who can respect when he needs “alone time.”

The dog pods in the Adoption Centre are all occupied with dogs of all sizes, shapes and ages – with one thing in common – they’re all looking for a forever home! “The summer is a great time to

welcome a dog into the family,” said Bruce Roney, OHS Executive Director. “Everyone is outdoors biking, riding, hiking: all activities you can enjoy with your dog. The family is together and can take the time to welcome and bond with their new pet.” There are nearly 100 cats available for adoption at the West Hunt Club Facility as well as throughout the city at PAL (Pet store Adoption Location) partners. Through July, the OHS is actively promoting cat adoption. During this period, for people who adopt one adult cat (six months or older) from its 245 West Hunt Club Road location, the adoption fee will be waived on a second adult cat adopted. The OHS has cats available at several of its Pet store Adoption

Location (PAL) pet store partners throughout the city, although the special promotion does not apply to cats adopted from those locations. Anyone interested in adopting a cat can visit the OHS Adoption Centre, weekdays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pictures and profiles of adoptable cats are also featured online at www.ottawahumane.ca. The OHS currently has about 40 small animals and birds looking for new homes. There is a pet for everyone at the OHS – large, small, furry or feathered. Please spread the word and tell your friends to take visit our Adoption Centre. You might meet your new best friend!

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

Shadow Time to make a grooming appointment

Meet Raphael, an unaltered male, orange and white American Shorthair guinea pig. He is about nine months old and was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on April 11. Raphael loves to speak and squeak his mind! Pay him a visit and he will charm you with his conversation skills. He’s a social butterfly who solicits attention from anyone willing to listen and give him some affection. Guinea pigs are talkative and entertaining creatures that enjoy a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables as treats. They love to be where the action is and become part of a routine in the home where they can join in the conversation and sing you a song or two. To find out more about owning a guinea pig, contact the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca

OPERATION: FOREVER HOME The Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) is urging people to consider adding to their family because the Adoption Centre is full of furry and feathered friends needing homes. With more animals than ever before in the shelter, and more arriving each day, there is no room in the Adoption Centre for new adoptable dogs and cats. Animals in the holding area can’t be moved into the more spacious Adoption Centre for the public to see until some of the current adoptables move out.

City shutting down Nepean equestrian park

Summer Conservation Tips!

Laura Mueller

The hot hazy days of summer are here, and Hydro Ottawa is sharing tips to help you conserve electricity while keeping cool.

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city is banking on the National Capital Commission to find another group to run the Nepean National Equestrian Park as it prepares to shut down its equestrian operations. All programs and services at the park should cease by Aug. 26, the city’s finance committee recommended on July 3. That decision was taken with the provison that the city will put $50,000 towards finding alternate spots for disabled and special-needs riders currently enrolled in the therapeutic riding program at the equestrian park. But the future of programs at the park is still up in the air. In addition to the therapeutic riding program, the park currently provides space to board 17 horses and also offers lessons – mainly for beginners – as well as recreational riding and facilities for horse shows. Spokesman Cedric Pelletier said the NCC would like to continue the “existing use” of the park, which the city ran by leasing NCC land for $20,200 a year. But he said the future offerings at the park will depend on what the businesses and groups

Consider installing a ceiling fan, and set it to force air down in the summer.

Use fans to supplement or replace air conditioning.

Nepean resident Milo Cruikshank – seen here with Toy, the horse she leases and boards at the Nepean National Equestrian Park – was emotional at the prospect of having to leave her “family” at the park after the city indicated it wants to cease park operations. that step forward suggest for the site. “I can’t tell you we will keep all the components,” Pelletier said. “At this time it’s too early to decide about this,” he said, adding the city hasn’t of-

ficially terminated its lease of the park. That wouldn’t happen until after council votes on the closure on July 11. See USERS on page 14

Users unhappy with program loss From USERS, page 13

The typical timeline for seeking a new group or business to run the park could run between three and six months, Pelletier said, but he wouldn’t confirm how long it would take to find a new operator for the equestrian park or a targeted date for the new operators to take over the facility. HOME AWAY FROM HOME

WATCH YOUR OTTAWA FURY CHALLENGE FOR A NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST SOME OF THE TOP TALENT IN THE WORLD!

That worried Elaine Gagnon, whose 18-year-old son, Joey, has participated in the therapeutic riding program for five years. She spent three years looking for a local program that would accept Joey, whose pervasive developmental disorder has left him “trapped in a tense and twisted body.” Horse riding gives Joey, whose symptoms have autistic tendencies, something to socialize and talk about, his mother said. That progress will stop if she can’t find a private program that will have him, Gagnon said. “I have no riding as of this point,” Gagnon said after the finance committee’s decision. “I didn’t hear anyone say differently,” she said, adding that providing $50,000 for programs at other facilities doesn’t guarantee her son will

be accepted elsewhere. Milo Cruikshank, a Nepean resident for whom the park has been a “home away from home” for more than a decade, was even more uncertain about the future of her adopted “family.” Cruikshank wished she and other park users had known about the impending closure earlier so they could have done more to prevent it. FILLING THE GAP

The lone dissenting voice on the shutdown was Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who is a longtime supporter of the park for its role in providing recreational opportunities for girls, women and people with disabilities. Wilkinson presented a motion aimed at continuing operations at the park into the fall (perhaps until the end of the next session in October, or until the end of the year) to ensure there isn’t a gap between the city’s programming and when the new operator takes over. That idea was quickly shot down by the rest of the committee. The councillor for the ward where the park is located, Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, said the gap in general programs and operations wasn’t the biggest concern for himself and other members of the committee. While councillors very

much wanted to keep up the therapeutic riding services going, Taylor said, “No one was keen on continuing to lose money. “The sooner you can close the door, the better,” Taylor said. The park has run an average deficit of around $140,000 each year for the past six years, and it needs $1.25 million in capital upgrades, according to a report from city staff. That’s despite council’s 2005 direction to find a way to break even on running the park. Shutting down operations at the park will save the city $320,658 next year, minus the $50,000 the city will contribute to clients of the therapeutic riding program so they can find equivalent services. That will also involve selling the city’s 33 horses that are used in for riding lessons – something that has weighed heavily on the minds of people in the equestrian community, said Jennifer Thomas, an equestrian park volunteer who spoke to the committee. She said the city and the managers they hired to run the park could have tried harder to prevent it from failing. Better advertising, deeper ties with the equestrian community and proactively seeking new events to rent out the park would have made all the difference, Thomas said.

Four easy ways to give fresh fruit flavour appeal

all-natural, organic

LEMONADE W

e all enjoy one of the biggest benefits of summer – the availability of a wide variety of seasonal fresh fruit. Fruit can be served as a snack, an appetizer, a salad or a dessert. It’s generally quick and easy to prepare and can be served at any time of the day. While we often eat fresh fruit just as is, sometimes a few extras can give it a whole new flavour. Here are some suggestions to try. With some, I’ve given only approximate amounts so vary them to your taste. WATERMELON WITH FRESH MINT & FETA

You won’t find any artificial flavours, colours or preservatives in our

• 1/4 red seedless watermelon, cubed • 3-4 fresh mint leaves, minced • 2-3 tbsp. crumbled feta cheese

certified organic lemonade – just the pure and simple summer taste of Sicilian lemons and a hint of Tahitian lime, lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar. Flash pasteurized to keep the flavour fresh.

This has to be tasted to believe, the flavour is amazing. In a serving bowl, gently toss the watermelon cubes with the mint. Top with the feta cheese. Serve as an appetizer or salad. Serves two to four.

HONEYED CANTALOUPE WITH BLUEBERRIES

R0011496347

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice • 2 tbsp. liquid honey • a pinch of cinnamon • 1 cup fresh blueberries • 3 cups cantaloupe melon, cubed in bite-sized pieces, then measured In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, honey and cinnamon together. Place the blueberries and cantaloupe cubes in a serving bowl, and toss gently with the dressing. Serve as a dessert. Serves four. You can substitute fresh raspberries for the blueberries for variety. BLUEBERRIES WITH ORANGE SHERBET

• 1 litre orange sherbet • 1-2 cups fresh blueberries This is quick and easy to prepare and makes a refreshing dessert on a hot summer

night. When you’re ready to serve dessert, scoop the sherbet into individual serving bowls. Scatter fresh blueberries over the sherbet. Serves four. STRAWBERRIES WITH SOUR CREAM & BROWN SUGAR

• 3 cups fresh strawberries • 1/2 cup sour cream (reduced fat) or plain yogurt • 4 tbsp. brown sugar For this recipe, you can use either light sour cream or plain yogurt. Wash and pit the berries. If they are small, leave them whole. If they are large, slice them. Divide the prepared berries among individual serving bowls. Top each serving with some of the sour cream or yogurt. Sprinkle a tablespoon of brown sugar on top. Serves four.

cent. The level of drought is based on the three-month rainfall totals which currently sit around 79 per cent of the long-term average for the watershed. The month of June was even drier at 73 per cent of normal. The relatively dry winter, followed by below normal spring and early summer rainfall, is causing stream and lake levels to drop. On the Rideau Lakes, the low rainfall and lake inflow is causing lower lake levels. Flows in all streams and the Rideau River are well below average for the time of year. The Jock River has seen flows lower than this only five times in the last 32 years of record.

Push for Sunnyside Village biz area kicks into high gear City collecting public comments on Old Ottawa South business improvement area Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

We need a promotional, identifiable point of view,â&#x20AC;? McGregor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The name (Old Ottawa South) is meaningless to people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live here. ARTHUR MCGREGOR BIA SUPPORTER

Sue Smith, owner of the Ottawa Antique Market, said she and many other area merchants she knows are against forming a BIA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the vendors on this street arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Her main concern is the cost. The economy is still sluggish and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affecting sales for her business and other merchants. Furthermore, she said, she simply canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any benefit from such an organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how a street party is really going to do much,â&#x20AC;? she said. Anthony Power, owner of New Morning Futon and Furniture, has also expressed concerns about the proposal, but was out of town and unavailable for comment last week.

The need for a unified business voice became apparent during the consultations on the Lansdowne Park redevelopment project, said Arthur McGregor, owner of the Folklore Centre and one of the merchants pushing for the BIA. But he sees more benefits for both businesses and local residents. A BIA could lead the charge to promote intensified development along Bank Street in the same style as a mixed-use commercial and residential building at Grove Avenue that contains a coffee shop and stores at the ground level and residential units on the upper floors. More residents will encourage more merchants to open businesses that cater to the local population, such as food stores and merchants that offer items and services for everyday needs, in addition to some of the specialty shops, gift stores and antique dealers that feature prominently along the street now.

The BIA would formalize a loose association of businesses that has existed in the area for a dozen years, McGregor said. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, who is also a resident of the area, is in support of the BIA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For many reasons, the time has come for a BIA in Old Ottawa South,â&#x20AC;? he wrote in a city report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that the future strength and prosperity of this main street and the quality of life of Old Ottawa South would benefit greatly from a vibrant and well-organized business association who can speak with one strong voice.â&#x20AC;? SUNNYSIDE VILLAGE

While the official legal name of the group would be the Old Ottawa South Sunnyside Village Business Improvement Area, McGregor is pushing to have the business district known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sunnyside Village.â&#x20AC;? While he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see the name of the neighbourhood itself changed,

P I R T DAY O W T FOR

McGregor said a more geographically distinctive name for the business area that surrounds Sunnyside Avenue along Bank Street would be a benefit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a promotional, identifiable point of view,â&#x20AC;? McGregor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The name (Old Ottawa South) is mean-

ingless to people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live here,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that people understand â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ottawa southâ&#x20AC;? to mean anything from his neighbourhood all the way to Metcalfe. Now that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance and economic development committee has approved its intent to designate the proposed

BIA, it will need the support of the businesses representing at least two-thirds of the taxable area in the proposed BIA boundaries. If businesses representing more than a third of the taxable floor space object to the idea, it will be dropped.

EMC news - A proposed business group is needed in Old Ottawa South to attract businesses that will serve residents, advocates say, but not all merchants are convinced itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a good idea. If approved, the group, called a Business Improvement Area or BIA, would include the businesses along Bank Street between the two bridges and a stretch along Sunnyside Avenue from Bank Street to Seneca Street. All businesses within that area would have a fee applied to their taxes and the money collected could be used for any activity that benefits the business area as a whole, such as advertising campaigns, seasonal decorating or events and lobbying politicians and attracting potential new businesses. While a city-run survey found only 3.2 per cent of business and property owners surveyed were opposed to the idea at the end of 2011, some businesses in the area have spoken out against it. When the survey was conducted, a large segment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 30 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of the business and property owners surveyed were still undecided.

EMC news – A vandalized stone monument to Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan has been restored at the memorial garden of the Royal Canadian Legion’s national headquarters in Kanata. The stone Inukshuk was

toppled by vandals sometime overnight on June 27, leaving the statue in pieces. Bob Butt, outreach director for the Royal Canadian Legion, said the act was “very deliberate” as the statue weighs about 450 kilograms and was cemented to the ground. Members of the Legion filed a police report when the broken statue was discovered early the next morning. “We would like the people who did this to own up to it,” said Butt. The statue was reassembled and erected by three em-

ployees of Moriarty Property Maintenance and Landscape free of charge, said Butt. Some of the stones had to be glued back together. “It’s not only symbolic but it was erected for a reason,” Butt said. “That reason was to pay homage to the 158 Canadians who died in Afghanistan.” The stone statues were traditionally used by the Inuit people as geographical markers used as markers by travelers. “Inukshuk, when you look it up, it will say it leads the

way,” said Butt. “This one points east to Afghanistan.” The statue was donated by Richard Leger, whose son was one of the first soldiers killed while serving in Afghanistan. A special ceremony was held in September 2011 marking the donation of the statue and an oak tree in honour of those who served in Afghanistan. The Legers have decided not to repair the chips and marks left on the Inukshuk and granite plaque, which the heavy stone statue landed on. See DRAGON’S, page 19

Smoke-Free Legislation

The City of Ottawa adopted amendments to its by-laws to provide for more smoke-free spaces. The following spaces are now smoke-free: • All outdoor areas on municipal properties including parks, playgrounds, beaches, sports fields, and outdoor areas around City facilities • ByWard and Parkdale Market stands • Outdoor restaurant, bar, and food premise patios The new smoke-free regulations apply 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All Rideau Street planters to be removed Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - While a large portion of Rideau Street is getting a makeover over the next two summers, the section between Dalhousie Street and Sussex Drive will continue to look “rugged,” according to the area’s councillor. Upgrades to that section, which includes the Rideau Centre, won’t happen until construction of the downtown tunnel for Ottawa’s light-rail transit system begins in 2013, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. In the meantime, the city is aiming to make that leftover section of Rideau blend in a bit better with the shiny, newer section. Large, heavy cement planters will be removed all along Rideau Street – including the portion from Sussex to Dalhousie that won’t be reconstructed. In the Sussex-toDalhousie section, pavers will be put in place to fill in the sidewalk. “The western portion will continue to look sort of rugged, so we want to create sort of a blend there,” Fleury said. There is enough money in the Rideau Street reconstruction budget to cover the cost

of removing the planters. The large planters have mostly served as obstacles to pedestrians and create more clutter than an aesthetically appealing streetscape, Fleury said. When the street is rebuilt, most of the sidewalks will be in the 3.5-metre wide range, which is largely consistent with what’s there now, said Randy Dempsey, who is the transportation engineer for the project. But Fleury insisted the sidewalks, while not physically wider in many spots, will still offer more usable space for pedestrians because of better organization of “street furniture” such as granite block benches, garbage cans and street lights. “It is (an improvement). People are looking at the width of the curbside to the wall,” Fleury said. “In spots you have wider sidewalks and in spots you don’t … But what you do is you gain because of the removal of the planters and … better organized of street furniture. “It will make better, logical sense and it will be more enjoyable to walk along Rideau Street.”

GLOBE TROTTERS Nine riders from Oakhurst Farm in Ashton are in Rochester, N.Y., this weekend to take part in international eventing, considered the triathlon of equestrian sports. The riders and horses, from left, are Sarah Mather and Pogo, Jackie Naida and Sokit2ya, and Laura Gravelle and Dalwhinnie. Standing next to the sign is coach Ruth Allum.

Cracking down on bogus refugee claimants

There is no change in Interim Federal Health coverage for treatments affecting public health and public safety. Treatment, including prescription medications, will continue to be provided to all refugee claimants for infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV, and for other medications necessary to protect public health and safety, such as anti-psychotic drugs. Furthermore, there are no changes to primary health care for the vast majority of refugee claimants, who will continue to have access to the full range of basic doctor and hospital services that all Canadians receive through their provincial health care system. This includes treatment for chronic disease.

LOOK FOR YOUR FLYER IN THE

Most importantly, all refugee claimants are provided, free of charge, an Immigration Medical Exam, which screens claimants for disease and provides the preventative health care that some critics claim is being lost. As soon as a refugee claimant is found to be a genuine refugee, he or she has access to the full benefits of the provincial health care system. Bogus asylum seekers, including those whose claims have been rejected but who refuse to leave Canada, will no longer receive, at taxpayer expense, enhanced health services such as eye and dental coverage that are unavailable to many ordinary Canadians. Finally, “asylum seekers” from safe countries, such as the liberal democracies of the European Union or the United States, will no longer continue to receive the full range of basic and supplemental health care coverage, though they will still receive urgent or essential medical care. These changes go hand in hand with the introduction of reforms to speed up the processing of asylum claims from safe countries, meaning that these asylum seekers will have their claims heard in a matter of weeks, rather than years, as is currently the case. Health coverage for these claimants is, therefore, only a short interim measure. These are reasonable, measured changes to stop the abuse of Canada’s generous and overburdened health care system by bogus asylum claimants, especially those who have been rejected but prefer to enjoy generous welfare and health care benefits that even honest, hard-working Canadians do not receive.

Communities like Barrhaven and Riverside South are growing rapidly, partly because many new immigrants are moving into these areas. The refugees in these communities have come from dire circumstances to start new lives in Canada, and our government is ensuring that these hard-working, legitimate refugees continue to see Canada as a safe haven. The recent changes to the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) will weed out the people who attempt to abuse the generosity and hospitality of our nation.

t didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter a whit that our family were Lutherans and that Mother still thought of herself as a Catholic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when the 12th of July rolled around, we practically closed down the farm and headed into Renfrew to celebrate with the hundreds of Orangemen who met once a year to observe the Glorious Twelfth. We would get up earlier than usual that day, so that we could finish the chores and be in town before the parade started. But long before we left the farm, there were preparations to make at home. We wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be back until late in the day, so the chores had to be done and the livestock tended to. We children would have a morning bath and then dressed in the clothes we would wear to church on Sundays. My sister Audrey and Mother would start to pack the lunch early. Sandwiches of roast beef and sliced chicken, hard-boiled eggs and raisin cookies were all packed in 11-quart baskets lined with clean white flour-bag tea towels. Honey pails would be filled with big chunks of ice from the ice house and tea, made the night before and left sitting on the back of the stove, poured in. The parade always started

at the fair grounds, so that was where we headed with the old Model T. We always tried to park close to the gate, so we would have no trouble getting out when it was time to head home. We looked for a grassy spot which we would claim for the day. Mother would have taken one or two quilts, and these would be spread out on the grass, our lunch on top and another quilt wrapped around the lunch and tea to keep everything as cold as possible. For reasons which escape me today, we never got sick from food poisoning from a spoiled lunch. Back then, you could go off and leave your belongings on your chosen spot without fear of it being stolen. Often there would be a midway and we would wander through the fair grounds, knowing we could never take advantage of the rides or candy floss - there would be no money for such frivolities and we considered ourselves lucky just to be in Renfrew for the parade. It seemed to take forever for the bands to get lined up in proper order and as soon as they started to play and march out of the fair grounds, every eye would be turned towards the place where King Billy would be

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories in the lineup. He always rode a white horse and its tail would have been braided for the day with yellow and blue ribbons flying out behind. Everyone roared and clapped, even those who had absolutely no connection with the Orangemen. We usually knew who King Billy was because often he turned out to be a neighbour, but for that day he was someone very special and our hands ached from clapping when he passed by us on his white horse. Hundreds of people, not even part of the parade, dressed for the occasion. White suits, white dresses, white shoes and stockings and brilliant orange and blue sashes swathed across their chests. For years I begged Mother to let me go as an Orangeman, but to no avail - she told me to be satisfied to be at the parade. Back then, the true significance of the day meant little to us children.

We had Catholic neighbours who took the day off from farming just as we did. On that day, it was the parade that mattered, not which church you belonged to. We children thought we were pretty lucky to be able to go into Renfrew for the day, and leave the day chores behind us. We would wait until the entire parade passed the spot we had chosen to sit, which often took more than an hour. And then Mother would take the quilts off the basket of lunch and we would eat like we hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a meal in days. It always tasted better coming out of the basket than it did when it was just eaten around the old pine table in the kitchen back on the farm in Northcote. I could never ďŹ gure that out and once I asked my older and much wiser sister Audrey, how that could be. Her answer made perfect sense to me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything always tastes better when you are at a parade,â&#x20AC;? sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say.

Scotiabank gives $2,000 to cenotaph fund New Findlay Creek branch wants to support surrounding community Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news – The campaign to add fallen soldiers’ names to the Osgoode Township cenotaph got a big boost on Thursday, July 5 when Scotiabank’s Findlay Creek branch donated $2,000 to the cause. The Fallen But Not Forgotten initiative began mid-June and aims to raise $3,000 from the community so that Veterans Affairs will cover the other half of the $6,000 project. As many as 14 men killed in action in the first and second world wars are missing from the cenotaph outside Metcalfe’s old town hall, despite their connections to Osgoode Township. Several residents along with Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre are hoping to add those names to the memorials, clean the stones and fix their damaged bases. Poilievre has already submitted an application to Veterans Affairs to cover the other half of the restoration and en-

MANCHESTER UNITED ACADEMY COACH NEIL RYAN TO VISIT THE OSU On Thursday July 12-14, 2012, Ottawa South United coaches and players will benefit from the incredible opportunity to learn from Neil Ryan, one of the top coaches in Manchester United’s Academy. During his visit Ryan will spend his time at OSU holding training sessions for our players as well as, in conjunction with OSU’s newly appointed Head Coach of Player Development from Everton FC Paul Harris, giving a seminar to our coaches. OSU players and coaches will benefit greatly from this unique opportunity to learn from the philosophy and player development program of one of the top clubs in the world. “ Manchester United is globaly renowned over the years for producing “in-house” soccer talent that graduates (Beckham, Giggs, Scholes, Welbeck, etc) to play with the famed Manchester United FC team. This is a unique opportunity for the OSU coaches to learn directly from the people that operate this Academy. We are also pleased to hear that other non-OSU coaches from other soccer clubs in Ottawa will be participating in this exclusive seminar with Neil Ryan” said OSU President, Bill Michalopulos.

Neil Ryan played professionally in England and the United States, before joining the Manchester United Academy as a coach. Ryan’s visit is one of the benefits of OSU’s unique affiliation with Dallas Texans and Nike.

graving costs. The new Scotiabank branch in Findlay Creek donated $2,000 – two thirds of the campaign goal – as part of its regular efforts to give back to the community it serves. “We have a branch in Osgoode and a branch in Russell, and this is a new branch. It’s part of the community and we want to support the community,” said Carla McVeigh, branch manager in Findlay Creek and a Metcalfe resident. An account has been opened at the Osgoode branch so residents can donate to the cause. Already donations have been received from community groups such as the Metcalfe Lions, Osgoode Legion and the Vernon Women’s Institute. Amateur historian Coreen Atkins-Sheldrick spearheaded the cenotaph project several years ago when she realized that several names of local fallen World War I soldiers were missing from the memorial.

From left: Coreen Atkins-Sheldrick, Osgoode Village Community Association member Rob Brewster, Findlay Creek Scotiabank manager Carla McVeigh, NepeanCarleton MP Pierre Poilievre, and Legionnaires Joyce LeBeau, Paul B. Allen and Margery Toner came together on Thursday, July 5 to celebrate a $2,000 donation from Scotiabank. As she delved further into local records, she found seven names from the first war and seven more from World War II who potentially should be included. She is now in the process of proving which ones have legitimate ties to the area. Scotiabank’s donation was made in memory of Private Ernest Bonsall, one of the

men from World War I that Atkins-Sheldrick is sure should be included on the cenotaph. Bonsall’s family farmed in Osgoode Township between 1902 and 1915. Bonsall and his brother Walter both served overseas but Ernest never made it home. The restoration and engraving work should be complete by October.
