South candidates ready to roll



News - Councillors once again said they were holding their noses as they voted on July 9 to make the Rideau-Carleton Raceway the city’s only option for a new casino site. But the ďŹ nal vote at city council on July 17 might see a different result, depending on additional legal information the city solicitor will bring to the meeting after representatives from the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre blasted the city for what they say is a faulty and possibly illegal process of choosing where to put a new gambling facility. While council voted in principle last fall to support a new casino, Watson said changes in leadership at Queen’s Park and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation opened an opportunity for the city to specify where it wants a casino, and he now thinks the facility should be at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway.

News - The race to represent Ottawa South is heating up. A byelection will be held on Aug. 3 to replace Dalton McGuinty, the riding’s longserving MPP and former premier. The candidates are John Fraser (Liberal), Matt Young (Progressive Conservative), Bronwyn Funiciello (NDP), Taylor Howarth (Green Party),

For Liberal candidate John Fraser, it’s about the community and people. His ďŹ rst involvement in a political campaign was in the 1968 general election. At the age of nine, he found himself captured by what John Turn-

er was saying about how he wanted to help people. “For me it’s about community and people,� he said. “That’s what motivates me – it is what has always motivated me, as a young adult, in the 20 years I spent in business and in the last 14 years I spent helping the families of Ottawa South. I believe in an old fashioned notion called public service. I get tremendous satisfaction out of helping people.�

Without it, the raceway and the approximately 1,000 jobs provided by the south Ottawa business would be no more, Watson said. “This is the only way to protect slots at the raceway,� he said. But critics of the move blasted the city for going down a road of solesourcing the bid for a new casino. While Watson contends that any hopeful casino operator could submit a bid and then operate a casino at the raceway, critics said in a practical sense, the location and business operations must be linked.

Melnyk calls mayor’s motion ‘unlawful’ College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said that when he asked the same question last fall, he and council were told that rejecting OLG’s casino choice would mean the slots at the raceway – and effectively, the raceway facility itself – would shut down. The news even came as a surprise to the representatives of the raceway. “That’s a new but a positive wrinkle,� Lawryk said. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick said that could end up being the result if the OLG chose not to renew its slots contract with the raceway. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt, who opposes a casino, said it’s impossible to say whether the original vote last November would have had a different result if councillors knew the OLG would be open to continuing to operate the slots. “It appears the direction of the OLG has changed since Wynne came in,� Moffat said. But that option didn’t exist at the time, he added.

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk speaks to reporters during a July 9 meeting of the city’s finance and economic development committee. Melnyk wanted councillors to vote against Mayor Jim Watson’s motion that would force a new casino to be built at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, adding the city should include all location possibilities, including Canadian Tire Centre.

Senators owner Eugene Melnyk spoke to the committee at length, pleading for an equal chance to submit his bid for a casino at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not asking for a handout. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asking for a shot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a shot to make money so I can do this,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to running his hockey team despite financial losses. The Senators operate at a great financial loss and a casino could help prop up the business, Melnyk said. But he brushed off the suggestion that he was threatening to take the team elsewhere if he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the chance to bid to build a casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this for 10 years. Why stop now?â&#x20AC;? Melnyk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still love this city.â&#x20AC;? City solicitor Rick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor agreed to get additional legal advice from third-party lawyers after the mayor and council received a tongue lashing from Capital Sports and Entertainment lawyer Paul Webber. He called Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion â&#x20AC;&#x153;unlawfulâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;morally and ethicallyâ&#x20AC;? unsound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are bonusing a business. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how I can be more clear than that,â&#x20AC;? Webber said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only does it not pass the smell test, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not legal.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not true â&#x20AC;&#x201C; legal advice from an arms-length firm that defended the Lansdowne redevelopment contract indicated the city is allowed to specify a location. But Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said he would like to look at the matter in more depth, given the â&#x20AC;&#x153;aggressiveâ&#x20AC;? nature of comments from delegates like Webber. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans said the goal of saving the raceway and the jobs it provides is laudable, but the city should have more information before it makes moves to save one business at the expense of another, such as a hockey team like the Senators. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, whose ward contains the Canadian Tire Centre, took a similar stance. He has supported the possibility of a new casino at the arena all along, he said, but he would like to see it win in an open and competitive bidding process. Alex Lawryk, spokesman for Rideau Carleton Entertainment, said the finance and economic development committee made the right decision on solid legal footing, but he supported councillors wanting to get

more legal information at the city council meeting on July 17. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They also said last November when they voted to move forward with the OLG program that they were going to hold their noses and vote then. So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still holding their noses and voting.â&#x20AC;? While the raceway would like its own casino bid to win, Lawryk said the group would still be satisfied if it became the landlord to another casino operator, since that would still support the racewayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operations and allow it to continue. The only dissenting vote at the finance and economic development committee meeting was from Deans, who has been vocally opposed to a new casino. At least one councillor was surprised to hear the city manager say that the Rideau Carleton Raceway would remain open and operated by the OLG or a subcontractor if the city rejected OLGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chosen option for a casino operator and location.

Ottawa South has been a strong Liberal riding for the past 26 years, but Matt Young said he is determined to change it to a Conservative blue if given the opportunity. With his past experience working on political campaigns, his private sector knowledge, and his understanding of job creation and the economy, Young was recognized for his commitment to reducing the size and cost of government in a statement by party leader Tim Hudak. Young is calling for strong action to grow the economy and rein in government spending.

Young says health care and job security are top priorities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With four hospitals in this riding, a lot of people work in the health care sector,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding many also have the privilege of working in their own community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other than the hospitals, there is no other large industry. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mainly all small to medium-sized businesses.â&#x20AC;? Additionally, he said finding jobs for youth and those who have immigrated is paramount. He applauded the PC partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discussion papers on reining in government spending and encouraging job growth, saying they are a good tool to use as an approach to governance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about creating dogmatic policies,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about getting back to what it was before.â&#x20AC;? If people want change within Ottawa South, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one party, in Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion, that can fit the bill.

Born, raised and educated in Ottawa South, Fraser spent 20 years managing small and medium-sized businesses before accepting a role in former MPP Dalton McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riding office. For the past 14 years, Fraser has had the chance to work alongside families in the riding, along with the hospitals, schools and community organizations. Fraser has also worked with community leaders and organizations such as the United Way, school boards and federal MPs Pierre Poilievre and John Baird to deliver the STEP program - addictions counselling to schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand how to work with people to get things done and I have a record of delivering for our community,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I bring to

the table.â&#x20AC;? While Ottawa South has world-class hospitals, excellent schools, and strong community organizations, Fraser said there is still more work to be done. One of the cases he points out is bringing CHEO forward in its strategic plan over the next 10 years, as well as ensuring employment opportunities await young people fresh out of school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to make sure our young people can get jobs, and build careers, so that they get the same start in life that my generation had,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to work harder to recognize, value and support people in our community who are vulnerable and need our help. We have to ensure our parents can live longer in their homes with the care that they need.â&#x20AC;?

Seven hopefuls vying for seat at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park NDP candidate Bronwyn Funiciello, the daughter of a ďŹ erce antiapartheid advocate, says she was taught from an early age to stand up for what is right and speak out on behalf of others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand through a decade of experience how to effectively represent the concerns and issues of my constituents,â&#x20AC;? said Funiciello, a trustee and vice-chair of the Ottawa public school board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And now, I am the only candidate in this race with any electoral experience.â&#x20AC;? One issue she has been hearing about since knocking on doors of Ottawa South citizens is wait-times for home care services for seniors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ontario NDP has already succeeded in reducing the wait time for home care for elderly Ontarians to ďŹ ve days by forcing the Liberals to make changes in the budget,â&#x20AC;? Funiciello said. Funiciello says people are looking for a change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Aug 1, people have a real choice,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Electing me gets you a strong leader with a proven track record of getting results. My opponents offer the same old storyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;scandals, cuts and bickering amongst them. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason why Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is the most trusted leader in Ontario.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will keep pushing for health care that actually meets the needs of Ontarians of all ages.â&#x20AC;? A visually-impaired mother to four children, Funiciello describes herself as a competitive athlete and a strong advocate for public education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Confronting the challenge of my visual impairment has taught me so much. I face challenges head-on and I get the job done,´ TAYLOR HOWARTH

Green Party candidate Taylor Howarth is running for a variety of reasons, but mainly for the challenge and the opportunity to learn more about herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to understand myself bet-

TIVADAR BANFALVI

Born in St. Catherines, 18-yearold Tivadar Banfalvi is running to represent Ottawa South in a way he says will be efďŹ cient and get the job done right the ďŹ rst time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that when people try to make change quickly, they try to skip past the details,â&#x20AC;? he said. His passion for sports is what has enabled him to learn about being part of a team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been very invested in sports,â&#x20AC;? he writes on his website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have played a variety of sports, including soccer, rugby, basketball, and football. I am better at some than others, but the one aspect of me that makes me strong in all of them is my ability to be a team player.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;One MPP only has one vote, but an MPP who can reach out to others and is respected as part of the team has a much greater inďŹ&#x201A;uence.â&#x20AC;? A graduate of BrookďŹ eld High School this past June, he received the Ontario Scholar award, and has been admitted into the general arts program at the University of Toronto. Should he become MPP, he said he would resume his studies at the end of his term. A strong supporter of sustainable energy and protection of the environment, promotion of sustainable energy in the legislature is one of his main priorities. He also has plans to facilitate environmental projects in Ottawa South and ultimately the rest of Ontario, such as the installation of so-

lar panels and electric car charging stations. He says Ontario needs to see certain healthcare improvements, such as full dental coverage for people under the age of 24 and better coverage on prescription medications. Another one of his goals is to increase the general level of education in Ontario, as well as to lower or eliminate university tuition fees. JOHN REDINS

For John Redins, the only solution to ďŹ x government is to run for ofďŹ ce. The Party for People with Special Needs candidate is currently living on disability beneďŹ ts. After undergoing a second hip replacement in 2011, the 48-year-old man uses a walker to get around, and lives in daily pain. He said his main motivation in getting involved with the issuebased party was when he found he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting the supportive answers he needed during his struggle with arthritis. In Ottawa, the current wait time for hip replacements is more than a year, and is among the longest in the province. Apart from improving wait times and critical care, however, the party is also looking to improve social housing by giving developers incentives to add more units. The partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ ve provincial candidates are also asking for a royal commission to create a long-term

social housing plan for the next 25 years. Changing the welfare system also ranks high on his priority list, particularly through eliminating the drop in beneďŹ ts that kicks in when an individual gets a job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now the rates are below poverty rates, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re penalizing families that are working because of claw backs. What happens is the families get paid less than minimum wage,â&#x20AC;? said Redins. Redins is a former automotive dealer who was laid off twice before he went on disability because of his hip. He is also an active member of ACORN Ottawa, which ďŹ ghts for social housing and poverty alleviation JEAN-SERGE BRISSON

Jean-Serge Brisson was born in 1954 in Embrun, raised on a dairy farm, attended high school and ultimately opened his own radiator repair business in 1974. Brisson ďŹ rst became leader of the Libertarian Party of Canada during the 2000 party convention and was re-elected as leader in 2005. Prior to becoming leader, he ran as a candidate in the 1988 and 1993 federal elections, and in 1990 and 1995 in the Ontario provincial elections. He remained the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national leader until the convention of May 2008, but did not run for re-election.

Brisson ran in municipal elections for a seat as councillor in Russell township in 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2006. He was elected in 2003 as councillor, but failed to get reelected in 2006 losing by 200 votes. He ran in the provincial election of 2007 in Ottawa South in the hopes of raising the proďŹ le of the party. He repeated this effort in 2008 with the intent of continuing to raise the proďŹ le of his party, and hopes to do so again this time around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever I am asked what is a libertarian I keep it as short as possible by saying it in this fashion: A libertarian believes everyone have equal rights,â&#x20AC;? he states on his website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The enjoyment of my rights go as far as to not interfere with the enjoyment of my neighbors rights. Mine end where yours begin and vice versa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe in property rights but what few people understand is that the ďŹ rst right to own is your life. From there all that you produce with that life is yours to dispose of as you see ďŹ t, providing you do not interfere with some one elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to property.â&#x20AC;?

Asian market lights up summer nights

Inaugural Ottawa Summer Carnival takes place Aug. 9 and 10 Jessica Cunha

Councillor/Conseillère Quartier Gloucester-Southgate Ward

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - The Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is preparing to take part in an Asian-themed night market, to be held on Aug. 9 and 10. Wen Jean Ho, founder of the support centre based in Kanata, said the inaugural Ottawa Summer Carnival event is an educational opportunity, as well as a chance for people to come out and have a little fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very interesting,â&#x20AC;? said the Barrhaven resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be fun for the whole public.â&#x20AC;? The mandate of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is to introduce Asian culture, said Ho, and the group will have a booth at the evening festival. The activities at the booth, however, are a secret, she added. A night market is a street bazaar, featuring vendors selling goods at reduced prices, operating outdoors in the evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be vibrant,â&#x20AC;? said Jezamine Lee Blomqvist, who volunteers with the Kanata Chinese support group and lives in Nepean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first thing is food (but) they sell everything â&#x20AC;Ś This will be a gastronomic experience.â&#x20AC;? BAZAAR

The Ottawa Summer Carnival will be held in the parking lot of the T&T Supermarket, located at 224 Hunt Club Rd., in south Ottawa. Organized by the Federation of Ottawa Chinese Canadian Organizations, an umbrella association of more than 35 Chinese groups across the city, the free event will feature Asian street foods, entertainment, fun and games, a car show, contests, performances and merchandise vendors.

TrafďŹ c Calming Pilot Project: Trappers Road The City of Ottawa is undertaking an innovative trafďŹ c-calming measure along 12 streets spread across 11 wards. I am pleased to announce that Trappers Road in the Emerald Woods community has been selected as one of the locations for this pilot. Residents will soon notice that ďŹ&#x201A;exible plastic speed advisory signs will be installed down the middle of Trappers Road, approximately 100 metres apart. This is meant to be a seasonal installation that will be in place from early July through to mid-November 2013.Trappers Road was selected in response to community concerns regarding excessive speeding and cut through trafďŹ c. The use of ďŹ&#x201A;ex stake signs has proven effective in other large municipalities at increasing driver awareness when travelling near school and parks, ultimately resulting in a decrease in speed. Data will be collected to determine the effectiveness of these measures and to help determine if they should be used on an on-going basis to help address speeding concerns in Ottawa.

JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND

Jimmy Wen, manager of T&T Supermarket, and Wen Jean Ho, founder of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre, are excited to be taking part in the inaugural Ottawa Summer Carnival, an Asian-themed night market, to be held on Aug. 9 and 10. Jimmy Wen, manager of T&T, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited to be part of the first Ottawa Summer Carnival in the city, having seen the events take place in Toronto, and around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very popular in Asian countries and areas,â&#x20AC;? said the Barrhaven resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people come out and enjoy the outdoor culinary experience.â&#x20AC;? Some street foods that will be available include barbecue lamb kebob, stinky tofu (which is salty and spicy but has a distinct smell, said Wen), bubble tea and ice smoothies. Wen said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expect-

ing around 20 food booths, more than 60 vendors in total, and around 10,000 people at the night bazaar. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance for people â&#x20AC;&#x153;to learn about different cultural things and enjoy the celebration,â&#x20AC;? said Yoyo Tsai, with T&T. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to give them more different, new things to try.â&#x20AC;?

The City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Planning and Growth Management team is currently conducting a review of the suburban driveway and parking standards. Currently driveways and parking areas are not allowed to be in front of the main part of a house and can only be in front of a garage or side yard. The review being done may result in slightly different parking and driveway regulations for communities outside of the Greenbelt by making it easier to build a wider driveway in these areas. It is important that the city maintains an appropriate balance between parking and greenspace so city staff is looking for input from the public. Homeowners in the Kempark and Ramsayville areas could be affected by these changes and these residents are encouraged to visit ottawa.ca/driveways to review the suggested changes and take part in the survey. Please note that the survey will be available until August 16.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s avoid city planning extremes

T

here is little room for black and white when it comes to planning Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. A good case-in-point is the debate that surrounded the decision to turn Main Street, running through Old Ottawa East, into what is described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;complete street.â&#x20AC;? This term describes a streetscape that makes room for all modes of transportation, from walking to cycling to cars to buses or other modes of mass transit. It means wide sidewalks, designated cycling and transit lanes and typically fewer lanes for automobile traffic. It is the type of street that is meant to promote and support sustainable growth of cities, making the streetscape a friendlier place for those living and working in the area. It is also something that can prove divisive, a situation that played out at a recent transportation committee meeting. Two councillors serving on the committee, both representing suburban wards, expressed concern with the effect such a street would have, not on those living in the area, but those passing through or living in areas that might become home to a complete street in the future. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans said reducing the number of lanes on Main from four to two would have a negative effect on commuters from

her ward. Despite the good intentions of the complete street plan, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a concern worth considering. In a similar vein, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said Ottawa needs to â&#x20AC;&#x153;ensure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not designing all our streets in a way that chokes off traffic and the ability to transport people and goods.â&#x20AC;? Also a good point, but neither concern is reason enough not to make Main Street a more pleasant roadway for walkers and cyclists. They shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ignored either. As the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intensification policies play out and more people live in the urban core, it will no longer be feasible for more people to drive around their neighbourhood. This scenario wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be playing out the same way in the suburbs, which will remain reliant on automobiles for decades to come. The problem is, those people use the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban core â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for both work and pleasure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; too. When they do, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be riding in the comfort of their own automobiles. If we want our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads to be as pleasant and as efficient as possible, automobiles must remain a big consideration for both city staff and councillors. Like with many political decisions, the grey area between the black and white is where many of the best answers lie. Making sure Ottawa is a great place for all of us to live, work and play must be the paramount concern in all decisions made at city hall.

What happens when Alfie comes back?

I

t will be a few months before we have an answer to the big sports question, so far, of 2013. Will Ottawa hockey fans boo Daniel Alfredsson? This is a bit of a trick question, because a percentage of people at the Sens arena have always booed Alfredsson. Those would be the Toronto Maple Leaf fans who have always hated Alfredsson for obscure historical reasons and have stumbled into the wrong arena. But for most fans, Ottawa fans, the moment of truth will come the first time Alfredssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new team, the Detroit Red Wings, visits. Will he be booed, like Alexei Yashin and Dany Heatley, or cheered, like Mike Fisher, when he returned to Scotiabank Place as a member of the Nashville Predators? Some people will never forgive Alfie for leaving Ottawa. Others will thank him for his many years of inspiring play for the Senators and wish him well. And some people will boo anyone not wearing a Senators uniform. There are many different kinds of sports fans, as you found out reading the Internet comments on the day Alfredsson announced he was leaving town. While much of the city was in numb shock, some fans had moved on by mid-afternoon. Online, they had already forgotten Alfie, as

they happily discussed the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new acquisitions, Bobby Ryan and Clarke MacArthur, dropping scoring statistics into the conversation, speculating on the positive effects of the team becoming younger, as well as various issues relating to the salary cap and other esoteric abstractions. Meanwhile the rest of the city was in mourning. The rest of the city was talking about Alfredssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character, his contributions to the city, his leadership, his influence on young hockey players. People like this root passionately for the home team. They love Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players because they play for Ottawa.

are especially beloved. Because these fans are so loyal to the players, they expect the players to be loyal to them. But hockey, like all sports, like all society, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to work that way anymore. Players are not loyal to teams, teams are not loyal to players -- at least, not forever. Stars like Alfredsson leave because they see a better chance of winning somewhere else, or because they are offered more money. Teams trade popular veteran players, like Mike Fisher, because they think they can get something in return, or simply to dump some salary. It is a business, as we are constantly reminded. This is a tough thing to explain to a young fan and you put off explaining it for as long as you can. People thought that Alfredsson was different, but it turned out he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. People thought the Senators would do anything to keep Alfredsson in Ottawa, and it turned out that they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Some of us would like it to be otherwise, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a business. We should know that, from looking at the prices we pay to get in and from looking at the reports of the salaries players are making and the vast amounts of cash laid out for television rights. But there is a part of every sports fan

that is a starry-eyed little kid, just wanting to cheer for the home team, worship the stars and not know anything about the financial details. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably that little kid who keeps coming back, despite strikes, lockouts, drug scandals and all the other unpleasantness that has been plaguing professional sport in recent years. We want to believe the best of our athletes and the teams they play for. Our faith isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always rewarded, but it is often enough to keep us in the game. Over the years, Alfie was one of those who helped us keep the faith, which is why it is so difficult to see him go.

Experience the freedom of the woods I’ll stick to the

I

have to apologize to my friends and colleagues who’ve been Facebooking and sending me regular emails. They know I’ve recently acquired a smartphone, so I should have no excuse for being out of touch. But here’s the thing: three weeks into summer and we’ve spent every weekend in Gatineau Park. Gatineau Park doesn’t have good wireless coverage for my network. So for three days a week, I’ve essentially been switched off. Although I’ve been reprimanded by friends for forgetting ladies drinks night and hounded by editors desperate to assign me summer projects, I’ve been enjoying the weekends of freedom. It turns out my kids feel the same way. “Mom, I love camping,” said my seven-year-old the other day. “I feel so free when we’re camping.” My boys are the perfect age to explore nature on their own terms. We set up camp and, with some established rules (okay, it’s still freedom with limits), they take off for hours at a time into the surround-

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse ing woods. It gives them the impression, at least, that they are loosed from the watchful eyes of parents and rules. They smash rocks and play war. They catch bugs and hide behind trees. I asked my younger son what other kinds of things he likes to do in the woods. “Last weekend, we made a fort,” he said. “And we made up a game: how many rocks you can throw into the hole in the bottom of the tree.” They create things. They have the autonomy to experiment without judgment or instruction and seemingly without limits. Much of this comes down to the fact that they’ve been camping since their first years of life. We’ve also taken them to interpretive nature programs and safety programs, like Hug-a-Tree-and-Survive. For

two years, my kids have been carrying the backpack kit provided by the local Search and Rescue team – including a whistle, a plastic bag and a snack. (We replace the snack on occasion). Age seven and eight, they’ve already been sleeping in their own tent for three years, which is shocking to most of their friends and mine. Our first weekends of the summer also saw the baby get down and dirty. Barefoot on grass, she crawled about and walked, pushing her little wagon further than ever before. One day, we found her with a squirmy green caterpillar wriggling between her wee thumb and forefinger. (She may have been about to eat it, but for that moment, she was just examining it and giggling). When we’re camping, the

baby eats well, sleeps well and hardly cries. She gets dirt under her fingernails and campfire smoke in her eyes, and she loves it. She’s a natural. Sometimes we talk dreamily about buying a rural property so we can build a cabin or a chalet. But the thing is we love camping. Every trip offers an opportunity for the kids to meet new friends, explore new areas of the woods and grow. And they do grow, physically and also intellectually and emotionally. There are no temper tantrums in the woods. There is empathy and patience. I can’t explain how their personalities seem to change. Not bound by four walls, no ceiling to block the elements, their internal rhythms kick in. They sleep when it gets dark, wake with the sunrise and eat constantly, but heartily. It really is a beautiful thing. They also like that mom is never distracted by the interrupting beep of her smartphone. When’s the last time your kids experienced that kind of freedom? When’s the last time you did?

back yard To the editor: Having read your editorial in the July 4 edition, I offer the following observations on your concluding paragraph: “If you’ve never spent a lazy Saturday or Sunday wandering between six musical stages, taking in unknown acts and finding real gems, you’ve been missing out.” Unfortunately I think I do know what I’m missing: • The long hunt looking for a place to park. • Once having strategically placed my lawn chair, having rude people stand in front of me with their butts in my line of vision.

• Loud noise masquerading as music. • Hot, sweltering, sticky Ottawa summer weather. • Cigarette smoke, alcohol-infused screaming and the wafting odour of pot. • Crude language and sexually dominated lyrics. • Crowds, crowds, crowds. So, my peaceful backyard and a cool beverage make a great alternative to something oriented exclusively to the teen, tween and twenty-something crowd, thanks very much! John R. Ferguson Nepean

Rideau River park celebrates 50 years with community day Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Any 50th anniversary is reason to celebrate, and staff at Rideau River Provincial Park are jumping on the opportunity. On Saturday, July 20, members of the public are invited to wish the park a happy anniversary with a fun-filled day of fishing, canoeing and exploring. At various times between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., families can meet Smokey the Bear, visit with conservation officers and learn about the park’s rich habitats and wildlife with natural heritage education staff from sister park Murphy’s Point. The Friends of Murphy’s Point will host a barbecue and cake-cutting event for a nominal fee, and in the afternoon families can jump in an 18-person voyageur canoe for an hour-long free tour on the Rideau. Families should register in advance for a voyageur canoe tour.

tions. The park was part of the province’s explosion in park development in the 1950s and 1960s, when Ontario’s parks jumped in number from only eight in 1954 to a whopping 77 in 1961. In 1957, Ontario’s minister of lands and forests, J.W. Spooner, announced plans for a swimming beach and campground on forest station land along the Rideau. Camping started in 1959, and in 1963 Rideau River was officially designated a provincial park. In those days, a day pass cost only 50 cents, and a camping permit was $1. For $3, you could use the park all season. Today the park is a popular site for day use as well as car and RV camping. Along with 184 regular camp sites, it offers six group sites which are well-used by local scouting and community groups. The park boasts sandy beaches, a fitness trail and fishing opportunities. Senior park clerk Laurie Dulmage has worked at the park for 13 years and said it’s unique because of its accessibility. “We’re on the Rideau Canal, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and we’re close to Ottawa and close to Merrickville,” she said. Down the road, visitors can find hiking trails and a golf course. In the past decade the park has upgraded its washrooms and sewage systems, and has seen much of its park infrastructure updated as well. Last year 39,000 visitors used the park. The park is located at 2680 Donnelly Dr. For more information call 613-258-2740.w

BRIDGING COMMUNITIES Ward 22 Update

Connected to your community

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean STRANDHERD-ARMSTRONG BRIDGE UPDATE As many residents have recently noticed, the next phase of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge construction which involves positioning and launching of the bridge across the Rideau River has begun. The positioning was a gradual process to ensure that this large structure was placed securely and safely into its final position. The bridge was pulled across the river on rail cars, using jacks anchored on the west side, to allow the bridge structure to roll along the launch trusses. The bridge was then pulled using a strand jack and cable system. Interested residents are encouraged to continue to watch the progress from the safety of their homes, via the online camera link on my website at www.SteveDesroches.ca. In addition, updates will continue to be posted to my website on this important infrastructure project. Once the bridge positioning is complete, significant construction will continue on the bridge before it will be open to the public. Ballast walls and approaches to the bridge will be constructed, as well as storm water sewers required for drainage. Also formwork and rebar for the deck and sidewalks will commence, pouring the concrete deck and sidewalks, barrier walls and railings, electrical work, expansion joints waterproofing and asphalt. There is also significant road work to be done, including the installation of lighting and traffic signals. The planned completion date is September 2014. I am pleased that progress is being made and look forward to the completion of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge project. Please continue to follow my website for updates on the project.

RIVER ROAD CULVERT REPLACEMENT I have been advised that work to replace a culvert on River Road approximately 4KM north of Mitch Owens Drive will commence on July 26, 2013 and is expected to be completed by the end of August 2013. During the construction River Road will be closed between Rideau Road and Earl Armstrong Road from 7 PM on July 26, 2013 to 6 AM July 29, 2013 with a detour along Rideau Road, Spratt Road and Earl Armstrong Road with local access only. After July 29th there will be minor lane closures in off-peak hours to complete the work on the culvert and roadway.

Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind hosted their annual UK Day Garden Party and Tea, in the tradition of a British high tea. The public, guide dog supporters and many British individuals enjoyed the afternoon out on July 14, stopping by the headquarters for hot tea and scones, all prepared by the chef at Earnscliffe – the residence of the British high commission. Above, Ottawa residents Jane Beyon and Melissa Austin were just a few of the attendees who enjoyed the event, while listening to live music by Lynch & Fine. Classic British cars were also on display during the afternoon.

I have advised the contractor to take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the normal traffic operations in the area, but as you can appreciate there may be some inconvenience during the course of the work. Thank you for your patience during construction.

Metcalfe man chases Canadian history to high Arctic Researcher tracing Canadian Arctic Expedition 100 years later Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One hundred years ago, a large team of scientists and adventurers were preparing for a journey of a lifetime to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high Arctic to document the landscape, wildlife and culture of the Far North. The Canadian Arctic Expedition, launched in 1913, would come to span ďŹ ve long years of setbacks, human loss and scientiďŹ c breakthrough and become one of the greatest, largely untold adventures in Canadian history. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a history Metcalfe resident David Gray hopes to bring back to life. The independent researcher, writer and ďŹ lmmaker has spent much of his professional life documenting Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northern regions. Despite his home base in rural Ottawa, hardly a year has gone by without a trip to the Arctic since he ďŹ rst spent 11 months on Bathurst Island in 1968. On July 17, Gray once again took to the north in an attempt to ďŹ nally locate, survey and document the camps and locations of the original expedition a century ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exciting opportunity to bring this site back to life, in a way,â&#x20AC;? Gray said, referring to the main site near Sachs Harbour, N.W.T., 500 ki-

but they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go back and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is where my grandfather put his tentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because no one has mapped it out.â&#x20AC;?

The six-person team will ďŹ&#x201A;y into Sachs Harbour on the southwest shore of Banks Island on July 17.

From there they can easily access the expeditionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main headquarters west of the town, where they will spend a week documenting the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hut foundations and remnants of the schooner Mary Sachs. From there the team will board a motorized sailboat Bernard Explorer captained by Bob Bernard, greatgreat-nephew of expedition member Peter Bernard. They will head due north to explore the western shore of Banks Island looking for any sign of Bernard, who was lost in the winter of 1916. The last sign of his trail was found at the northwest tip of the island and Gray said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely he ever turned south toward the safety of fellow expedition member Natkusiakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camp in the nearby Gore Islands. At the time, Bernard was carrying several large expedition mail bags. Finding those bags â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and anything still intact inside them - would be a major windfall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most likely scenario is he went through the ice and there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be anything to ďŹ nd,â&#x20AC;? Gray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But given the ocean currents ... stuff could be washed up on the shores at any time. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shot in the dark. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a needle in a haystack, but if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd.â&#x20AC;? See ARCTIC, page 14

Resident looks to bring history back to life with expedition Continued from page 13

From there the ship will make its way south along the shoreline to document another 10 sites, including Natkusiak’s camp. The crew should return home by the end of August. The expedition will produce two documentary films, a historical record of Sachs Harbour to be used as a tourism guide, and could someday lead to a book. Of course like many scientific endeavours, Gray said funding continues to be a barrier. Despite some indication that federal money would be set aside to commemorate the expedition’s 100th anniversary, Gray gave up trying to squeeze blood from a stone several months ago and turned instead to a crowdfunding campaign. The team needs about $20,000 to cover the trip’s bare bone expenses, which don’t include individual travel costs incurred by the team members as well as their free labour. “It’s a people expedition,” Gray said. He said many people connected to the expe-

dition, the team members or who have an interest in the north have already come forward with generous donations. Corporate sponsorships and donations from people not otherwise connected to the project are also starting to come forward. “Everybody’s pulling together,” he said. And putting off the expedition until more funds can be raised is hardly an option. As global warming takes its toll on the region, time is of the essence. “Now that there isn’t ice protection in the summer months, the erosion rate is increasing dramatically,” Gray said, noting that as much as one metre of shoreline is eaten away every two years. That erosion is taking history with it. “Every storm, every high tide, artifacts are lost.” Donors can still support the expedition with cheques to the Canadian Museum of Nature, or through the expedition’s website www.canadianarcticexpedition.com. The crew will also maintain a blog and live map on their website throughout their journey, for Canadians who want to follow along at home.

Big dig Preliminary digging and pile-driving has begun on the western approach to Ottawa’s downtown light rail tunnel. Workers began construction on the entrance, near Wellington and Commissioner streets, last week, with the bulk of above-ground work expected to be done by August. At that point, a boring machine will begin tunneling through the bedrock underneath Centretown.

Cancer fundraiser puts best foot forward Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - When Janice VandenTillaart found out she was cancer-free, there was only one thing she wanted to do: ride a 100-kilometre race to help raise awareness and money for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. VandenTillaart got the news she was cancer-free in December 2012 and since that day she has been training for Ride the Rideau on Sept. 7. Setting up a team with family members and friends called Tour de Cure, the group needs to raise $7,000 to compete. So far they have raised $6,418 for the cause and on July 7 VandenTillaart’s local spa, The Pedicure Shop in Manotick Station, decided to offer a helping hand by offering pedicures, manicures and other services with the cost donated to VandenTillaart’s team. “She is a great client and when she said she was going to participate in the ride, I wanted to help,” said JoséLucie Bastien, owner of The Pedicure Shop. Bastien said a close family member suffered from cancer and she always wanted to give back to cancer research. “I have donated throughout the years, but never had a chance to do something like this,” Bastien said. She added that in her business she

Janice VandenTillaart and José Bastien show off a newly complete pedicure at a fundraiser at Bastien’s shop, The Pedicure Shop in Manotick Station on July 7. The fundraiser is to help VandenTillaart raise money for her 100 kilometre bike ride during the Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s Ride the Rideau. has encounters many clients who suffer from different sicknesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. “In the few short years I have come to know Janice she has bravely fought this disease and continues to be strong in her outlook on life,” Bastien said.

Diagnosed with endometrial cancer in January 2012, VandenTillaart said since she began chemo therapy she started to loose the feeling in her hands and toes. So she became a regular customer at the Pedicure Shop for massages and pedicures to help keep feeling in

her toes. “José has been so helpful,” VandenTillaart said. “It’s been her positive attitude, I found it’s been really good for me. And she is so good with the therapy for me. She really knows her stuff.” To help with her circulation, she began knitting scarves, chemo hats and yoga mats, giving them away to others she met in the Ottawa Hospital, or selling them at the Rideau Curling Club to help raise money for the foundation. “To me it’s better to have something to sell then to simply ask for money,” she said. The scarves have been one of the biggest means for VandenTillaart’s fundraising. The pedicure shop owner is the only local shop that VandenTillaart’s scarves are for sale. The fundraiser got off to a wet start, but that didn’t stop people from coming out and getting their toes and nails prettied up for the cause. The day also included a barbecue, pedicures, manicures, items for sale all to help raise funds to help support the team’s bike race. Food was donated by MacKinnon’s Foodland. The Ottawa-to-Merrickville bike tour offers two ride options this year, a 100-km route which VandenTillaart is doing, and a new 50-km route. “This year, we expanded our ride to include a 50-km option in addition

to our traditional 100-km route,” said Michelle van Vliet, communications director at the foundation. “We did this to allow more people to participate and make an impact on the fight against cancer. While it is true you never forget how to ride a bike, many people we spoke to about getting involved were just too intimidated about training for a 100-km ride.” Van Vliet said currently there are 50 people registered in the 50-km option and 593 people registered in the 100-km route. Both distances require the same fundraising commitment of $1,500. In the four years the fundraiser has been in operation, it has raised $4.4 million for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. Due to chemo last year, VandenTillaart was unable to participate but she did attend the event to help volunteer at the finish line. VandenTillaart said she is nervous for the 100-km ride but is also very excited about the event and has been training since early January. After what is promised to be a hearty breakfast the ride begins at the Ernst and Young Centre and runs along the Rideau River to downtown Merrickville-Wolford. Those who participate in the 50-km will be driven the other 50 to meet up with the other participants. For more information about the ride, to donate to VandenTillaart’s team or any team visit ridetherideau.ca.

880, PR. THORNDALE, OTTAWA Maternelle à la 6e année

News - Concerns about what kind of “landmark building” could end up on the old Belisle Chevrolet-Cadillac site dominated a meeting about the future development of Vanier. The city is refreshing the Official Plan for Vanier, which has remain unchanged since amalgamation. The old plan encourages bigbox style development, allows for buildings of up to 14 storeys in many places on Montreal Road and restricts the ability to mix residential units into commercial buildings, which is something the city now encourages. A preliminary version of the new plan would see Montreal Road redevelop mainly with sixstorey buildings, stepping back to taller structures in some places where larger lots allow. But the new draft plan also paves the way for more significant developments at the two entrances to the district – at the corner of Montreal Road and North River Road, where the Eastview Plaza is located, and at Montreal Road and St. Laurent, the site of the former car dealership. Those sites wouldn’t have any building height restrictions in the new Official Plan, according to the draft version. The idea is to mimic the controversial landmark buildings policy included in the just-adopted Centretown community design plan and secondary plan. In Centretown, the community association and a group of developers formed a rare partnership to write their own version of the plan that eliminated the tall landmark buildings clause. Pheonix Homes recently purchased the Belisle site, but no development applications have been filed with the city. During a public meeting on July 8, Linda Joseph, head of the Filles de la Sagesse convent, said the sisters have heard rumours of plans for three residential buildings on the site, which she said would be “pretty serious.” “Can you imagine three or four towers (and) what that would represent?” she asked. The nuns worry about the cultural impact on the district, as well as the social and environmental impact of adding many more people and more buildings into the area, Joseph said. The affect on aging worshippers should also be a consideration, she said. The sisters know something will be built on the site, Joseph said, but they hope for some-

thing with “a human dimension” – maybe even a museum. Residents on neighbouring College Circle were also worried about the noise a new Belisle development. “I think they’ve overlooked (the Belisle site),” said Carole Larose. But she was excited about the rest of the plan, which she sees as the framework needed to revitalize Vanier. Larose recently moved back to Vanier from Carp. “I want to be part of this up-and-coming vibrant new part of the city,” she said. “I have pride… you want to keep the flavour but it’s time to move on.” A representative from Phoenix Homes was not available to comment on any potential development by this newspaper’s deadline. City planner Melanie Knight is in charge of the project and said she might still include a height limit for the gateways, depending on public feedback. “We are still looking at the gateway policy and questioning whether or not to actually put a height limit in the secondary plan policies or have that be something that is determined through the zoning bylaw amendment process,” she said. Keeping the old zoning on some of the large sites could lead to benefits for the community, too, since the requisite rezoning would come along with a “Section 37” community benefits payment from the developer, Knight said. “It is better to have the Official Plan policies that guide what the overall development should look like and then deal with individual developments on their own through the zoning bylaw amendment process,” Knight wrote in an email. The proposed updates to Vanier’s Official Plan would also see sidewalks expanded to four metres wide on both Montreal Road and McArthur Avenue as sites are redeveloped. Cycling connections and intersection improvements are also priorities in the plan, and that’s something the Vanier merchants’ association is excited about. “It’s important because people are looking for that sense of place,” said Suzanne Valiquet, executive director of Quartier Vanier. She said the plan will help Vanier “turn the page” and develop in a similar fashion to Ottawa’s other successful main streets like Bank Street in the Glebe. “We’re certainly very, very pleased with what the city is proposing,” Valiquet said.

Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli announces the second round of the Smart Grid Fund program at Algonquin College’s Centre for Construction Excellence on July 2.

Send a Strong Message Province green lights funds for energy products Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News – The province has given the green light to $36 million for the second round of the Smart Grid program. Ontario Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli invited Ontario companies and educational institutions to apply for the funding during an announcement at the Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence on July 2. The program was originally launched in April 2011 and supported nine projects to the tune of about $14 million. Chiarelli said 600 direct and indirect jobs were created by the projects funded in the first round of the smart grid program. It supports Ontariobased projects that test, develop and bring to market the next generation of energy development. Chiarelli said it is supported by investments like Ontario’s $4.7million smart meters. The idea is to connect the electricity system with new technologies that will reduce service disruptions, increase conservation capacity, waste less energy

and increase grid security. “Projects like the one Prolucid (a software engineering company) developed give local distribution companies more automated control and the ability to pinpoint an outage,” Chiarelli said. “The power will be back on as soon as the storm is over. Distribution companies will know the moment power goes out in your home.” Niraj Bhargava, CEO of Energate, whose consumer-connected demand response project was funded under the program last year, said the company employs 40 people to develop energy management solutions. Kent MacDonald, president of Algonquin College, said as leaderof an educational institution graduating the next generation of skilled labourers, he recognizes the importance of funding sustainability initiatives. “The investments being made in advanced energy technology will positively impact the future careers of our graduates,” he said. Project applications for the second round of funding will be accepted until Sept. 6.

You have a real choice in the August 1st by-election. You can vote for more of the same with Dalton McGuinty’s long-time political assistant. Or, you can vote for a new perspective and send a strong message that you are tired of government scandals and your money being wasted.

Biological Controls for the Emerald Ash Borer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Using All Tools Available to Protect Our Forest Canopy Further to my spring update, Forestry Services is working with invasive species experts from the University of Toronto and the Canadian Forest Service to advance research on biological controls for the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) through the use of native and non-native species that act as predators. This issue was a topic of several questions at the Emerald Ash Borer Information Session held in June and I want to ensure that you have the most current information on the work being done by our staff on this important issue. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has approved two non-native species of wasp for release in Canada as a control for EAB. These are Tetrastichus planipennisi and Spathius agrili. A third species of wasp that is native to Canada, Phasgonophora sulcata, is also being researched as a possible EAB predator. The wasps are non-stinging and are harmless to humans. The City of Ottawa is currently working with researchers to explore the use of Tetrastichus planipennisi and Phasgonophora sulcata on local Ash trees. Spathius agrili is not considered to be a good candidate for release in Ottawa due to our colder climate. Forestry services staff are already working with researchers by contributing staff time, equipment and inspecting sites to evaluate the effectiveness of these biocontrols in Ottawa and how best to incorporate them into the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EAB Strategy. The research trials are initially being done on a small scale and will include monitoring how the non-native insects interact with native species. The City is exploring multiple options to manage the spread of EAB. Research in jurisdictions with longer experience with this pest suggest that no one tactic is 100% effective. Therefore, a combination of different tactics, including pesticide use and biocontrols, is required for the long-term management of EAB.

Sizzling Summer Fun @ City Hall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Free Weekly Programs! The City has officially launched its free weekly summer programs at City Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marion Dewar Plaza providing fun for everyone, morning, noon and night.

Canadiana co-op Jen Gilbert of the Elizabeth Riley Band belts out a tune at the second annual International Day of the Co-operative on July 6 at city hall. The event welcomed co-operatives from across the city that came to promote and raise money and awareness of initiatives at different co-operatives operating in the city.

Thursdays, from 7 to 11 p.m. (until August 11), the City, in partnership with RBC Bluesfest Be in the Band, will deliver a program called Expressions. Youth bands and local art groups will combine their talents to raise awareness of mental health issues. In addition to the weekly schedule, special events are also planned such as roller derby events this Friday and Saturday, July 19 and 20, featuring the Rideau Valley Roller Girls and Capital City Derby Dolls and a Maker Market, August 1, which is a family-friendly showcase of creation, imagination and inventiveness. I invite you to visit ottawa.ca for the full list and details of the summer programming events at Marion Dewar Plaza.

Fresh market growing success in Overbrook Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - A small lineup of fresh-food lovers was on hand to greet the opening of a new monthly market in Overbrook. The Good Food Market set up at the corner of Lola Street and Presland Road to offer fresh fruit, produce and dry goods for area residents. It is the brainchild of the local poverty and hunger working group, which is made up members of the Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres in the city. Even though there are multiple farmers’ markets in the city, the Good Food Markets bring low-cost produce to areas of the city where markets aren’t available. “The idea is to provide access to healthy, affordable food and the markets are open to everybody in the neighbourhood,” said Kaitrin Doll, who helps run the seven markets across the city. Overbrook was one of four markets added to the list this year. The first event in June saw more than 100 people visit the market. Even before the market opened at 10 a.m. on July 6, residents were milling about, waiting as patiently as they could to purchase some goods. Angela O’Meara and her two children were among the early market goers, and they ended up purchasing a large bag full of fruit and vegetables. O’Meara said her children love to eat fresh produce and

she was happy to have the market in the neighbourhood. The food is purchased through the Good Food Box program, a non-profit organization run out of the Centretown Community Health Centre, which offers weekly produce boxes for $20, $15 or $10, depending on size. The money for the market was made available through the Community Development Framework funding. The produce available at the July 6 market was based on a survey the organization made available after the first market. Mehdi Louzouaz, the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre’s community developer, said the organization received great feedback and purchased its produce based on the suggestions from residents. For the second market, the organization has raised the prices, which Louzouaz said will help cover some of the cost for the upcoming third market. The third and final market will take place at the Overbrook Community Centre on Aug. 24 - the same day as the Overbrook Community Association’s community day. There were a handful of volunteers on site to set up the market early on the Saturday morning and Louzouaz said their efforts are vital to the success of the events.Vildana StanisicKeller volunteers for the Community Food Pantry and is in charge of purchasing dry goods for the market. Good Food Market locations include: • Sandy Hill Community Health

Centre on Chapel Street. • Rideau Rockcliffe Community Health Centre in the Overbrook neighbourhood. • Nanny Goat Hill Community Garden, northeast corner of Bronson

and Laurier in Centretown. • Nepean Rideau and Osgood Community Resource Centre, and South Nepean Community Resource Centre 76 Inverness Ave. next to Inverness Park.

• Somerset West Community Health Centre, in the Rochester Heights neighbourhood. • Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre, and Michele Heights Park.

Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer Council members Larry Carroll, left, and Stephen Dulude, right, present Friends of Hospice Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ruth Cameron with a cheque for $4,200.

Cal

News - The Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer Council delivered more than $21,000 to charities on July 3. The Kanata-based menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service group raised the funds from its soldout Rita Maheral Memorial Charity Golf Tournament, held at the Glen Mar Golf and Country Club in May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was our most successful (tournament),â&#x20AC;? said Larry Carroll, cochair of the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community always helps out.â&#x20AC;? Numerous charities received a donation from the Knights, including: â&#x20AC;˘ Friends of Hospice Ottawa: $4,200 â&#x20AC;˘ Royal Ottawa Hospital: $10,500 â&#x20AC;˘ Multifaith Housing Initiative: $1,500 The group split $5,000 between a number of other charities, including the Kanata Food Cupboard, Ottawa Mission and Shepherds of Good Hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We heard about Friends of Hospice and their need,â&#x20AC;? said Stephen Dulude, treasurer of the golf tournament. He said the Knights will continue to support the hospice organization in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is for our community,â&#x20AC;? said Dulude, a Bridlewood resident. Ruth Cameron, special events and financial management co-ordinator for Friends of Hospice, said the funds will go towards the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs and services. She added that $1.6 million is needed every year to run the hospice. The Knights have supported the

Royal Ottawa for a number of years because there is a real need to have access to mental health care, said Dulude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still something that needs this ability and support,â&#x20AC;? he said. For the past eight years, the Knights have raised funds for charities in the community through the Rita Maheral Memorial Charity Golf Tournament. The event was renamed after past Grand Knight of the council and tournament co-chair Clarence Maheralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife passed away three years ago. The Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer Council, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, has around 150 members. Dulude said the Knights activities can be grouped under five categories: church, community, youth, family and council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of our community outreach (is to) contribute back to the community,â&#x20AC;? said Dulude.

Odyssey theatre takes Shaw outside michelle.nash@metroland.com

Arts - Theatre under the stars welcomes audience members to take part in a farce this summer as Odyssey Theatre brings one of George Bernard Shaw’s plays outdoors for the first time. Odyssey will present Shaw’s Arms and the Man beginning July 25 at Strathcona Park. According the play’s director, Andy Massingham, this will be the first time one of Shaw’s plays will be performed outside. It will also feature actors in masks – something Odyssey Theatre is known for. There will be little to no set, drawing the audience into the words and actions of the play. “It’s going to be like a dream and the audience will see that life is a farce,” Massingham said. The director added the costumes will be very eye-catching along with the masks and other actors in heavy makeup. “It’s going to feel like you are looking at a painting,” he said. Dubbed an anti-romantic comedy, Shaw’s play explores love, war and social status. “It’s possibly the funniest anti-romantic comedy you can see,” Massingham said. Originally set in 1885, Massingham said he has set the play in a more contemporary setting. The company said they are aiming to attract both Shaw enthusiasts as well as anyone else who may be walking through the park. “People are going to find it’s more than a play. It’s a bit of an event and really the play starts from the moment people entre the park,”

Massingham said. This year the company will also be offering indoor matinees – a first for the company, which said owing to the unpredictability of weather and for the comfort of some long-time patrons, matinees will take place at Academic Hall Theatre, at the University of Ottawa with performances starting at 2 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays. Helping hands The performance has got a few helping hands this season as eight high school students are participating in the company’s youth apprenticeship program. The students get to experience a professional theatre company first hand. From stage directing, administration, acting and front of the house experience, these youth get the opportunity to learn as much as they can from Odyssey during the summer months. The program also offers students the opportunity to collect volunteer hours. “It’s great, at the end of the summer I might have at least 100 hours,” said Cléa Spencer, one of the youth apprentices. She added the hours are a bonus, but really it’s the experience she can’t get enough of. “You get so much more than just hours,” she said. “I recommend this program to anyone who is interested in theatre, and I also recommend you bring your enthusiasm too.” For Massingham he said the experience the students is much more educational than simply sitting in a classroom. “It’s the ultimate summer camp,” he said. “They each have their own role and it’s crucial that they care a part of it. We learn as we do.

JESSIE PARK-WHEELER/SUBMITTED

Last year Odyssey Theatre performs Marivaux’s comic masterpiece The Game of Love and Chance at Strathcona Park. This year the theatre company will be presenting for the first time George Bernard Shaw’s Arms and the Man starting July 25. This is not drama class, it’s a show. We all, including the students, have our blood, sweat and tears in this.” City hall-goers will be able to meet Spencer and her fellow high school colleagues at city hall. As of July 17, the young troupe will be performing a love scene to garner attention

for the theatre company every Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m. “It’s going to be like flash mob theatre,” Spencer said. The young Canterbury student admits she thinks it’s going to be tough trying to get people to stop and watch their short play, but she says she welcomes the challenge. “It’s such a physical performance and there is going to be some great music from another apprentice, I hope that makes people stop and pay attention,” she said. Lead actress for Arms and the Man, Pippa Leslie, said working with the students has been great. “It’s been great. I hope we can teach them lots of things,” Leslie said. “I just wish there was this kind of opportunity when I was in school.” Spencer said Leslie and the other actors and stage hands have been great at making this program a great experience for her and the other students. “Everyone has been really helpful,” she said.

Tramps always welcome at dinner table MARY COOK Memories clean, having taken a wash in the Bonnechere River before coming up the hill, they were invited in. If they looked like they needed a hand-scrub, Mother would take out a wash basin of warm soapy water, put it on the back stoop and told them to come in when they had washed up. The brothers would squeeze together on the bench and make room for the tramp and Mother would laden a plate full of food. I would watch mesmerized as the food vanished as if they hadn’t eaten in days – there was a good chance they hadn’t. Father would try to make conversation, but the tramps said little. We five children clammed up as if we had lost our tongues. I wanted to know where they had come from and how they had become tramps, but of course I too sat mute while the food disappeared. As quickly as they came, they spent just enough time to cram in their heaping plates of food and

He would go as quietly as he came, out the back door and down the hill, making his way to the railroad tracks

Then one day I learned at least a partial answer to that question. The young tramp that rapped on our kitchen door that day was whip thin and as clean as a whistle. His hair was coal-black and slicked down, showing that he had taken more than a quick wash in the river. Just as he finished tucking into his second piece of pie, he asked Father for a job. He talked more than any other tramp we had ever

fed. He was what was called a “home boy.” He came from England as a 12 year old, he said, from an orphanage. He was sent to a farm in the Ottawa Valley, where he suffered from abuse and endless hours of labour. Father told him there was no money for a hired man and besides, we had three strapping boys to do the chores. But the tramp persevered. He told Father if he could sleep in the barn and have three meals a day and a flat-fifty of cigarettes every Saturday night, he would work for nothing. That was how one of those tramps who rode the rails and depended on the generosity of others, became our hired man. He really became a member of the family and I would often see Father slip the man, who was really a boy, a dollar when he could spare it. The tramps were a symbol of that era. We knew not where they had come from or where they were going. It mattered little what time of year it was. Winter or summer, almost daily we could count on seeing a tramp coming up over the West Hill. They were never turned away. They came hungry and they left with full bellies and enough food to take them to the next stop on their endless journey.

then they stood and were ready to head out again. Mother would tell them to sit a spell and we always knew what she was going to do because it never varied all the time we lived through those Depression years. She would take a brown paper bag off the rack at the back door. Then she would go to the bake table and make thick sandwiches of whatever meat we had had for dinner. Always she would tuck in cookies or a big piece of pie and then she would go to the ice box and with the ice pick would chip off big slivers of ice and put them into a glass jar that at one time held pickles or preserves, filling it with cold water from the granite pail. Often I would see the tramp wipe his eyes with the back of his hand, as he thanked Mother and tucked the bulging paper bag into the sack he carried on the end of a short pole resting on his shoulder. He would go as quietly as he came, out the back door and down the hill, making his way to the railroad tracks. I knew he would be waiting until the next freight train rounded the corner at the very back of the farm. It would slow down to handle the curve in the track. Father said this was where they would jump on the train and go off to goodness

ather was sure there was a hidden sign nailed to a tree, only visible to the countless tramps who rode the rails that said, “Jump here: good food up the hill.” Deep in the heart of the Depression years, almost as if they were put there to remind us there was someone in worse shape than we were, tramps walked the back roads, rode the freight trains and survived by begging for their next meal. Countless numbers found their way to our kitchen door, always around dinner time, looking for something to eat. They frightened me, although Father said they were harmless, and I was glad that if they did surface at night, we never saw them. My brothers were sure they often came up over the West Hill and slept in the barn where they were warm and away from the outdoor elements. They seemed to know on the farm the big meal was at the noon hour. They also seemed to know when the family was all seated at the table, because that was when we would hear the gentle knock on the door. They never had to ask for something to eat: we knew why they were there. Mother would look them over and if they were

Lifestyle - Canadians tend to evaluate their habits and behaviours more positively than when specific questions about their lifestyle are asked. Desjardins Financial Security indicated conducted a survey that asked respondents to indicate their level of agreement with statements such as “You have a healthy body weight,” “You usually get enough exercise to be healthy,” and “Your alcohol consumption is not high enough to negatively impact your health.” The results were then compared to those from an online risk assessment tool developed and implemented by the Heart and Stroke Foundation. However the Foundation’s survey asked for more detailed information like height and weight, and asked questions like “Are you moderately active at work or at home for at least 30 to 60 minutes, four or more days of the week?” and “Typically, do you have more than one or two alcoholic drinks a day or 14 drinks a week?” “The results were striking,” said Marie-Josée Labelle, director at Desjardins Financial Security. “There seems to be a significant gap between what most Canadians see as a healthy lifestyle and what the experts recommend.” For example, while 60 percent of the DFS survey respondents felt that they had a healthy weight, 60 percent of similar respondents who used the Heart and Stroke’s Risk Assessment tool were actually obese or overweight.

Richmond underground chugs ahead Committee approves light-rail route despite NCC objections Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A chorus of unhappy residents relayed their continued opposition to the “Richmond underground,” despite the city’s offer to study a fully underground western LRT route. The transportation committee approved the route, which would start at Tunney’s Station and runs along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway in a trench for approximately 500 metres and traverses Rochester Field before dipping underground under Richmond Road for 700 m. This leg of the light-rail system will end at Baseline Station, but the portion that will see the most changes – and has stirred the most controversy – runs through McKellar Park. The committee signed off to proceed with the route despite the National Capital Commission twice voting to reject the Richmond Underground option. The route would

require the NCC to grant the city access to about a kilometre of its land along the parkway and the federal body was not interested in the city’s plan to run trains – even in a trench – along the road. But a few councillors, including Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, said the city isn’t willing to “bow to the NCC” when it comes to the rail route. And the NCC’s approval isn’t even needed yet, said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor. He pointed out the NCC didn’t sign off on the downtown portion of light rail, the Confederation Line, until just before the details were finalized and the contract tendered. City staff have already proposed changes aimed at pleasing the NCC that will inflate the bill by $80 million. The budget for the project, which now stands at $980 million, cannot stand to get any larger, or it will impact the city’s ability to tackle other transit projects on its list, said city

treasurer Marian Simulik. “Every time we whittle a dollar away, it eats into that $4 billion envelope for rail until 2031,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. Deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said staff have not done a “deep enough analysis” to come up with a price tag for burying the remaining 500 m. “That’s what we’d propose to do in the next phase,” she said. Schepers did say there is a significant difference in cost between keeping the rail line above ground or burying it. Per kilometre, it costs approximately $40 to $60 million to build on the surface, but that number balloons to $100 to $150 million per kilometre for underground rail. The line wouldn’t begin construction until around 2018. It would carry 1,300 passengers in each direction during the peak hour by 2031. RESIDENTS STILL UNSATISFIED

A handful of delegates – mainly representatives from nearby condo buildings – told the committee they’d prefer to see the route run down Carling Avenue, or for the line to at least be fully underground. Neeta McMurtry of Neighbours for Smart Western Rail said the

concerns “are not simply about NIMBYism (not in my backyard).” She was concerned about protecting parks and green space. Although the delegates were still displeased, Egli pointed out that the city has changed the plans substantially in response to residents’ concerns about property value, access to the waterfront, safety and more. “You’ve made us do our job better,” he said. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, who represents some of the residents who stand to be most affected by the rail line, echoed Egli’s comment. “I know that it has seemed at times that we weren’t listening,” she said. “But things changed drastically after the last open house.” CHANGES TO COME

Estimating the cost of burying the remaining section along the parkway isn’t the only work on city staff’s agenda. They will also be looking at refining the station locations, including analyzing whether it might be a good cost-saving measure to eliminate one of two proposed new stations at Cleary and New Orchard. A couple delegates, including

McMurtry, worried the local stations would cause traffic woes on their local streets because people would drive to drop off riders at the station. “Our communities will become a park and ride for all the communities forced to the north to access transit,” she said. STATION SIZE

Ron Bollman, representing a condo corporation at 727 Richmond Rd., said the proposed Clearly station is too large and elaborate for the needs of the local community. The stations were included because the city wants the rail system to serve the local community, too – not just commuters, Schepers said. Getting rid of one of the stations would create a one-kilometre distance between stations in that area instead of the proposed 600 m walking distance, Schepers said. The city will also look at making the berm that would run atop the train tunnel a bit shorter so it doesn’t block views to the river or create a steep hill that makes it hard to cross to the river. Identifying construction techniques and timing will also be part of the next phase of work.

Artist chips away Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Old Ottawa South residents will soon have a chance to see another portion of the Brighton Beach oak tree reborn. It was just a year ago that Westboro artist David Fels and Carleton University unveiled the first sculpture from the trunk of the tree. Now the sculptor is working on “take two” for him and the tree. “I learned a lot about the nature of a bur oak tree, specifically this tree; how it moves and how I move with it, but with this piece, it’s almost like a new start,” Fels said. The first sculpture, Sailing through Time, is on display in the lobby of Carleton University’s River Building as a symbol of the university’s commitment to accessibility. Fels said this new piece will represent inclusiveness. “The tree was a part of the community and it will continue to be,” he said. “It will be available to view in a public space where anyone will be able to visit.” The sculpture will take around three to four months with an aim to be complete in time for the university’s 2014 International Summit on Accessibility. The oak tree was estimated to be more than 200 years old when it was cut down in August 2011 due to storm damage. Shortly after it came down Larry McCloskey, director of Carleton’s Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities, approached the university with the idea of recreating the fallen tree into a sculpture.

“One day I was out walking my dog and I saw the Brighton Beach slowly falling down. So I called the city and I was in talks with them for two years,” he said. The piece, McCloskey said, is a masterpiece in itself, and will be the logo for the summit. The university said negotiations are underway to move the finished piece to the Ottawa Convention Centre, location of the Carletonhosted International Accessibility Summit on July 12-15, 2014. The summit will be the first international conference to promote access and inclusion for persons with disabilities for all aspects of life. STORED AND DELIVERED

The oak tree was being stored by the city and was delivered to the university, where Fels is currently chipping away at it. Fels said he and his family used to live in Old Ottawa South and when his children were younger they would walk by the large tree. “I used to always think that tree would be amazing to carve,” Fels said. When it came time to carve the trunk, Fels was the best candidate for the job, with more than three decades of experience carving wood and stone. The trunk is located under an alcove of the Architecture Building at the university. Fels has memorized the 14-foot long, 4,000pound piece of oak, working the design out in his head, much like a computer program. “Normally I have a number of ideas or concepts swirling around in my mind and the Paul

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

David Fels takes a stab at sculpting a second portion of Old Ottawa South’s Brighton Beach Oak tree. Fels’ first sculpture - Sailing Through Time - now stands in the lobby of Carleton University’s River Building as a symbol of the university’s commitment to accessibility. Fels said this sculpture will represent inclusiveness. Menton Centre wanted a piece on inclusivity and accessibility, an idea I’ve been grappling with over the years,” he said. When he is done, the artist said it will be less than half that weight, but remain just as long and the end result will slightly resemble the symbol for infinity. When it comes to carving, Fels said it is incredibly intricate and he has to be careful, because he cannot make a wrong cut -- one wrong move and the sculpture is no longer the plan he came up with.

The artist, who has worked with many different materials, different types of wood and stone over the years, said he is enjoying the history that comes along with working with this oak. “I love the interaction I have with this oak, it’s dynamic and historic and incredible to work with,” People walking by the Architecture Building at the university will be able to see Fels whittle away at the oak for the next few months while he completes his project.

West Ottawa Warriors soccer players journey to Nicaragua Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Education can easily be taken for granted, but in developing nations few have the luxury to feel that way.

JACQUES ROBERT Real Estate Lawyer Practicing since 1987

Six players from the West Ottawa U14 girls Warriors will soon return from Nicaragua, where they assisted members of charitable organization SchoolBOX construct a rural school building in the Central American nation. The journey follows a 2012 fundraising initiative in which the girls raised more than $1,700 (and significant awareness for the issue) through a five-kilometre run. An additional $2,000 was handed to SchoolBOX through the True Sport Give Back Competition.

Warriors teammates Kathleen Carson, Priya Nagpal, Tiffany Ingram, Gabriele Donnelly, Jessica Aiello and Talia Laroche joined coach Dina Bell-Laroche for the trip, something the West Ottawa Soccer Club is very proud of. “It’s been an inspiring process from beginning to end,” said Bjorn Osieck, chief executive of the club. “This is a wonderful, feel-good story, and I’m proud of the girls and their coach.” The trip was arranged following the granting of a youth volunteer scholarship by CTV’s Amazing People Gala, in support of SchoolBOX.

The six players and their coach are lending assistance to the construction of a four-room school. SchoolBOX executive director Sarah Kerr said that in Nicaragua, only 51 per cent of the population reaches Grade 5. The organization has a vision of a country where everyone has the opportunity to complete primary school and where students and educators feel empowered. “It has been so inspirational for our entire team at SchoolBOX to see the dedication and commitment of the West Ottawa soccer team to this mission of Making Education Possible,” said Kerr. “Under the direction of their amazing coach, Dina Bell-Laroche, these young athletes have raised thousands of dollars towards educational materials for hundreds of kids and sponsored five regional soccer tournaments for the children of Nicaragua.” Kerr said that each day at the build site, the Warrior teammates have been organizing soccer games with the boys and girls of the village, as well as developing lasting friendships.

nity to live by True Sport principles, by giving back to the community in both large and small ways,” said Osieck. “I love the though that we are building the community leaders of both today and tomorrow.”

Community receives update on park rehabilitation New climbing structure, more benches to be added Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The revitalization of one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest parks is set to get underway in Lowertown. Since 2010, residents living near Bingham Park have been working with their councillor and city staff, as well as raising money to help fix up the aging park. In 2011, Lowertown Community Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead for the project, Michael Kirkpatrick, was contacted by a local charity called the Chance Foundation

that wanted to help the community refurbish the park. For Kirkpatrick, it was exactly what the group needed to make the dream a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was about to give up and then Chance (Foundation) came along,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They saved this project. They have helped in so many ways.â&#x20AC;? On July 9, the community met to receive an update about the plans for the park at Routhier Community Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonight we are looking for feedback about what people want to see in the park,â&#x20AC;? Kirkpatrick said. Chance Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president Shannon Tessier, chief operating officer Christian Tessier and director of charitable activities Laura Gowland attended the meeting to show the plans on the park rehabilitation project to residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want this project into

the action phase,â&#x20AC;? Shannon Tessier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We strongly agree that recreation helps build community, and that is why we are here. That is why we love this project so much.â&#x20AC;? Chance Foundation came on board in early 2011, granting the community $20,000 for the project. Tessier started the foundation in 2007 with a project that saw medical supplies donated to a hospital in Ecuador. Later, Chance Foundation partnered with the Max Keeping Foundation in 2011 to help support 30 low-income children, allowing them to participate in extra-curricular activities. It also opened a pre-school in Nicaragua. Now the foundation has set its sights to make a difference in Ottawa and after many interviews on many interesting projects, Chance Foundation decided to help upgrade the

only large community park on the west side of Lowertown. Kirkpatrick credits Chance Foundation for helping wade through the application process for a major capital grant from the city as well as reach out to playground equipment companies to see what was possible for the area. MATCHING FUNDS

With Chance Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution of $20,577, a donation from Rideau Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Desjardins of $13,633 and donations collected through the community association of $2,790 the group applied for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major capital grant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which matches every dollar raised by the community. In total, the community has $74,000 to upgrade the park. In addition, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury has donated $1,000 recently, which is not a part of the major funding grant because it was given after the application. For the project, Tessier explained the budget needs to compensate for any unexpected occurrences, so $7,500 will be held back to pay for unforeseen costs.

A survey conducted by Chance Foundation from June 2012-13 helped identify what the community would like to see at the park. The top three things people identified were a play structure for older children and more benches and landscaping. The wadding pool, the hockey rink and the tennis courts were identified as some of the most used facilities in the park and residents asked for those to remain. A request to turn the current baseball diamond into a soccer field was also noted, but the costs, Tessier said, were too high. Gowland said the main items the foundation believes could improve the park is to add more benches, a new play structure and games tables and picnic tables. The benches will seat three, Gowland explained, in an effort to prevent loitering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the comments that struck me from the survey was that many expressed interest in accommodating patients from Bruyère, one even mentioning that there is a man who brings his wife everyday for lunch in the park and they watch the kids play,â&#x20AC;? Gowland said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me this is very important. This shows the park offers a sense of community.â&#x20AC;? The dozen residents who attended the meeting agreed and although the group discussed fine-tuning the details of how many benches and where the benches should go â&#x20AC;&#x201C; everyone agreed the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal was great. The play structure will be a climbing structure made of ropes and steal. It will be provided and installed by Dynamo Playgrounds. Near the end of the meeting, the foundation asked to the group how the contingency fund could be used if that money goes unspent. Options included adding more benches, a permanent ping pong table, a blackboard for single tennis play in the tennis court or potentially placing a mural on the field house. A final decision was not made at the meeting, however -- this will be decided in the next two weeks. The goal is for the project to start and be complete this fall. More information about the project or the foundation is available at chancefoundation.ca.

Learning to speak with confidence Non-profit teaches structure, poise Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - Twelve years ago after being laid off from his job at Nortel Networks, Alan Quirt knew he would be facing a slew of interviews when looking for new employment. Although he was used to giving presentations in front of people, he was always scared when he got up to speak. Wanting to give himself the best shot during his job search, he began to look around for something that would help improve his public speaking. He found the Christopher Leadership Course, a non-profit registered charity that has been teaching public speaking in Canada for more than 50 years. He said the move changed his life. “I’d been doing presentations at Nortel for years but I was always scared,” he said. “After I lost my job at Nortel … (I) decided that I needed to be able to speak better in interviews.” He signed up, completed the 11week course, and now teaches others how to become confident speakers. He has also completed a number of consulting jobs, including helping others apply for science tax credits. “I don’t think I could have done that without … the course,” said Quirt. “The general confidence I learned was

exactly what I needed.” Each Christopher Leadership Course has a minimum of 15 people, up to a maximum of 25 per group, with four to five instructors who are graduates of the course. Everyone, from the teachers to the president, is a volunteer.

sonal businesses … some of them have become authors.” One that stands out in his mind was a student from 2005. Linda Pond signed up for the course to help her build her confidence.

QUALITY COURSE

Working for a high-tech firm, one of Pond’s mentors came up to her one day and asked if she knew why no one listened to her. He said to her: “It’s because you don’t have confidence in what you’re saying.” “I took that to heart,” said the Carleton Place resident. “I looked at different ways I could increase my confidence.” She Googled public speaking classes and found the Christopher Leadership Course. For good measure, she also signed up for singing lessons. “For me that meant just do something better,” she said. “It was an interesting time.” The course is designed to help even the most shy people, she said. “They start off with really, really simple things: what’s your name and where did you live? Really simple things you could speak in front of people,” said Pond. “Each lesson gets a little longer … The whole confidence thing allows you to take little bits at a time, a steady progression up.” The hardest thing for Pond to get used to was not using notes; the Christopher Leadership Course teaches students how to speak without the aid of

“We put out a quality course as cheaply as possible,” said Quirt. “The basic thing about it is for people to gain confidence in their speaking abilities.” The class meets once a week over the course of 11 weeks, for three hours a night. Every student speaks twice in front of the group each week. The class boasts a success rate close to 100 per cent, said Quirt. “People who get through the first two weeks almost always make it through to the end,” he said. “It’s not a miracle. People who speak broken English will still speak broken English, but they’re going to speak with better structure and less tendency to hum and haw. “There is an easy, fun way to speak confidently in public,” he said. “And it works.” As an instructor, Quirt said he’s had the opportunity to see people “turn their life around” with the newfound ability to speak confidently. “It opens up a range of new opportunities for them,” said the Beaverbrook resident. “I’ve seen a surprising number of people who have used the course as a springboard to create a per-

Now an instructor, Quirt said he’s had the opportunity to see people “turn their life around” with the newfound ability to speak confidently. reminders, which can help speeches sound more natural and less forced. “You’re not up there reading anything,” she said. “You talk about what you know. You talk about things you’ve experienced in your life, which makes it really easy to remember. “It teaches you the skills you need to build a good story and how to remember it without notes.” She took her newfound confidence and became an entrepreneur – designing the Fab Light, a little LED that illuminates the inside of coolers, with her daughter. The experience gave Pond enough content to write and publish her first book: Top Secrets of a Girl Entrepreneur.

Pond took the advanced Christopher Leadership Course, which focuses on presentation skills, then became an instructor. “As a student and as an instructor it’s high energy and high fun,” she said. Her path to confidence has provided her with ample opportunities to speak in public and she also consults for other inventors, helping them get their products to the market. “It’s a great ride; lots of fun,” said Pond. “This all came out of Christopher Leadership, so I say ‘Why not?’” The next course will take place in September, with another in January.

More needs to be done for youth jobs: labour minister Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Local businesspeople, agencies, politicians and several students came together on July 3 to discuss youth employment – or a lack thereof. Kaylee Dufresne, a 15-year-old St. Peter High School student, said she’s applied for jobs everywhere she can, but hadn’t been able to get a summer position. She said many jobs require employees to be 16, and because she doesn’t have a driver’s licence, she’s limited in where she can apply. “There’s more than 100 people applying for a job, so it’s about connections,” she said, speaking during the roundtable session. The discussion included provincial Labour Minister Yasir Naqvi, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Employment, Eric Hoskins, and Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely. “We’re getting almost a failing grade, collectively, in supporting these young individuals,” Hoskins said. “We need to keep creating those good old-fashioned jobs.” Hoskins also spoke about the German model for youth employment, where youth have a heavy emphasis on apprenticeships and work experience through all their educational process. While he doesn’t think adapting the full German model is the solution, his point was that not enough is being done to expose youth to job opportunities and work experience. In Orléans, the primary job sector is retail. Orléans Chamber of Commerce executive director Jamie Kwong said she notices a younger demographic working in retail and food services in the community than other parts of the city. Kwong said that programs that give grants or incentives for employers to hire youth go a long way. The chamber currently has a summer

student, which they wouldn’t have been able to hire without a grant. “Most of our business community is older, so we don’t hear the feedback from youth,” Kwong said, adding that focus needs to broaden from summer jobs for students returning to post-secondary education and into more flexible opportunities, such as in the trades. “It leaves out a huge group of youth who need something year round,” she said. “Especially for marginalized youth; they might not be able to afford post-secondary education, but staying home and taking courses in trades

wouldn’t qualify them for (grant-assisted summer jobs).” Speakers from various organizations and groups, such as the YMCA, said that a more holistic approach is needed with marginalized youth, with factors like providing appropriate clothing and Internet access. When running events for students, common mistakes can include putting youth in environments where they are uncomfortable, like a formal wine and cheese, and holding an event at a location not easily accessible by public transportation, roundtable speakers said. “We’re not going to solve the problem overnight,” Hoskins said. “So I’d encourage you to talk to both Yasir (Naqvi) and Phil (McNeely). You have an opportunity to continue to provide advice and ideas.”

Sandra Oh receives key to the city brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Sandra Oh, known for playing Dr. Christina Yang on the television show Grey’s Anatomy, returned home on July 8 to accept the key to the city. Oh grew up in Nepean, and got an early start acting at Knoxdale Public School and Sir Robert Borden High School. Oh was the opposite of the stern character television fans are used to seeing, as she laughed, smiled and several times, wiped tears from her eyes as she accepted the key at city hall. Her family, including her parents, who still live in Nepean, and siblings all sat with the star at the city hall presentation. Besides Grey’s Anatomy, Oh has been in many independent films, and won two Genie Awards and a Golden Globe. Before she was presented with the key to the city, the audience watched a highlight reel of her work from when she received her star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2011. She dedicated a large part of her speech to her two young nieces, who grinned ear to ear when their aunt spoke to them about living with good values. LIFE WELL LIVED

“You can own the key to the city, to whatever city you live in, if you are responsible for a life well lived,” Oh said. “And I wish that for the both of you.” Oh’s first performance was in a play called the Canada Goose at Knoxdale Public School. “And then going along Greenbank to SRB, a huge part of my entire time in high school was the Canada Improv Games,” she said. “I did so much of my training and acting in those formative years from Grade 9 to 13. I can’t tell you how much that training affected my career, so deeply.” She also danced at Nepean’s Les Petits Ballets throughout her youth. Many of her teachers and friends returned to city hall to see her accept the key. She stopped to point out several teachers, friends, and even her first boyfriend sitting in the crowd. At one point, the current Sir Robert Borden principal came out to present Oh with a painted ceiling tile. As class president, Oh had promised advocating for painted ceiling tiles as a part of her campaign speech, something that didn’t happen during her year term as head girl. Oh said her parents, Joon-Soo and Young-Nam Oh, who immigrated to Ottawa from Korea, are well-respected in Ottawa’s Korean community. While they’ve come to many award

comfortable in his crate, which he’s used since he was a teeny pup. Meet Mr. Butters (A140976), a twoyear-old, neutered male, white and black domestic shorthair cat who would love to find a home with a fellow feline! Mr. Butters was surrender to the shelter by his owner June 5 and is now available for adoption. Mr. Butters is known to hop into the tub after your daily shower to play in the water left behind. He’s a very affectionate cat with a gentle disposition and would be a great fit in any home. Mr. Butters would rather not be left outdoors, as he is deaf, and would not be able to hear the world or dangers around him. He would love if his new family could provide him with an array of scratching posts to use daily.

Dogs Die In Hot Cars Leaving a dog alone in a hot car, even for just a few minutes, can be fatal. Each year, the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) receives hundreds of calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot summer days. A parked car can quickly become a furnace, even on a mild summer day, endangering an animal’s life and leaving the owner at risk of criminal charges. With only hot air to breathe, a dog’s normal cooling process – panting – doesn’t work. A dog can withstand an internal body temperatures of 40C for only a few minutes before brain damage or death can occur. Last year, we received 325 telephone reports of dogs in cars on hot days, 126 of which lead to warnings and advisories. The OHS Rescue and Investigation Services team removed eight dogs from cars and charged nine individuals, resulting in eight convictions. The OHS will continue to lay charges when animals are found in distress. Signs of canine heatstroke/heat exhaustion include:

The High Price of Big Spenders It all seems rather hopeless for Europe’s debtor-nations. Four of them — Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Greece — have needed bailouts since the beginning of the global debt crisis. The underlying cause of this is too much government spending, financed with too much debt. History has shown us that these governments can transform themselves, because it has been done before. Over the last two decades Germany, Israel and Canada have overcome debt and unemployment problems by departing from a culture of big government, towards one of free enterprise. In Germany only 25 years ago, a fifth of the population lived under communism. In his first term in office, Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s socialist policies made Germany the sick man of Europe. After four years, the country suffered a 10% unemployment rate and debt levels that exceeded the European Union’s allowable limits. In 2003, Schroeder underwent a transformation and introduced policies which cut welfare programs, simplified labour rules and lowered taxes for businesses and workers. Since then, unemployment has fallen by almost half to 5.3%. This is more than seven points below the Euro-zone average. Unlike its neighbours, the German government is expected to balance its budget by next year. Israel has also revamped its welfare state. In 2003, thenFinance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recognized the need to change from the socialist policies of the day. According to the authors of Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, “Netanyahu cut tax rates, transfer payments, public employee wages and 4,000 government jobs. He also privatized major symbols of the remaining government influence on the economy — such as the national airline, El Al, and the national telecommunications company, Bezeq — and instituted financial-sector reforms.” The result is that Israel now enjoys one of the most energetic and durable economies, despite having scarce natural resources and no friendly trading partners in the region. The jobless rate has fallen by almost half since the reforms, despite today’s global economic slump. What worked for Israel is working for Canada. Approximately 20 years ago, Canada signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which expanded one of the most successful trade relationships ever. Since that time, government spending as a share of the economy has plummeted from 50% to 41%, allowing for lower business and personal taxes. Since 1985, the federal government has privatized 30 state-owned entities, totalling $12 billion. These combined factors led the Heritage Foundation to report that Canada has the 6th freest economy in the world, ahead of the United States at 10th. Such economic freedom has given Canada the lowest net debt-to-GDP ratio in the G8, a record number of people employed and a one-third drop in the jobless rate since the reforms began two decades ago. In fact, the story is the same in all three jurisdictions: less debt and more jobs than their competitors. If the four bail-out nations had taken the same steps 20 years ago, we would not have a debt crisis in Europe today. Fortunately, it is never too late to do the right thing.
