News - Making a cellphone call may have become a little easier for some south Ottawa residents. Rogers Communications Partnership is planning to erect a 45-metre cell tower at 4815 Bank St., to improve wireless service for Findlay Creek residents. Eva Pigeon-Seguin, co-president of the Findlay Creek Community Association, said she was thrilled to hear about the proposed project. “I was excited to hear about this new tower,” she said. “My home connection is very unreliable now and I hope that service will be improved.” A few residents showed support on the community association’s Facebook page. A new tower was needed because of an increase in the number of people using wireless at home, work and on the road, said Luiza Staniec, manager of public relations at Rogers Communications. “People are becoming increasingly connected at home, at work, and on the road through their wireless devices,” she said.

tion on the corner of Uplands Drive and Hunt Club Road. The conference centre will provide meeting space for community groups and businesses in the south Ottawa area, said Anu Sohal, owner of Linden Developments, which has been working on the approximately $12-million project for nearly three years. “We feel it will be a great addition to

the community because it will be ideally suited for weddings, business expos and conferences, private banquets and special galas, and will be able to be configured for large or small gatherings of up to 1,000 to 1,200 guests.” The proposed one-storey building will contain 1,449-square-metres of meeting space, with 155 surface parking spaces.

Loading docks will be constructed at the back of the facility and screened from Uplands Drive and Gibford Drive. Sohal says the company anticipates construction to begin in early 2014, and is hoping to open the conference centre late in 2014. See DESIGN, page 2

The developer hopes the conference centre will be the premier banquet venue in Ottawa, outfitted with the latest in technology. “We will be the newest venue in the city at this scale in a very long time,” she said. Public comment on the project ran until July 12. Sohal said they’ve received only positive comments on the development.

“I think the excitement will only increase when we release our rendering and interior design,” she said. The development site itself is located in a vacant area, and is surrounded by the Holiday Inn Express, a hydro corridor to the east, a commercial parking lot to the south, and low profile residential dwellings to the west. Across from the hydro corridor are low profile residential developments.

Tower expected to meet local demand take anywhere from 18 to 24 months, said Staniec. “A great deal of planning and research goes into choosing antenna locations,” she said. “We look for sites that have the least impact on communities while still meeting the technological requirements for the tower.” While Rogers cannot predict how many people the cell tower will reach, Staniec said network coverage does depend on the height of the structure, existing topography, and the density of the population.

“More voice calls, text, and data messaging are being made and the use of smartphones and other devices such as iPhones and iPads is growing,” she said. “As well, more calls to emergency services are being made on mobile devices and parents are depending on cell phones to keep close to their children.” As the demand for wireless service increases, so does the need to expand and upgrade the supporting infrastructure, including new cell towers, she added. Site evaluation is done through a process of evaluating which areas have had the most errors in terms of cell connectivity, she said. They also assess antenna structures and customer comments on poor wireless service in their area.

Fire setter program looks to change youths’ ways “If a parent is worried about a son or a daughter, we will do an assessment,” he said. The program is confidential and free. Based on the information presented, a specific educational strategy will be modified to address the fire setting behaviour. Upon completion of the program, the child will be presented with a certificate of achievement on behalf of OFS. According to the fire department, studies have shown that 81 per cent of children will reoffend if not involved in an intervention of some kind. For more information on the youth fire setter intervention program, please contact the firepreventiongeneral@ottawa. ca by email or call the public education information line at 613-580-2658.

News - Last month, two teens were arrested in south Ottawa for setting fire to a chair in an open garage and following an investigation of the police arson unit, they were admitted into the youth fire setter intervention program. Fire prevention officer Peter Cutler said the goal of the program is to change a child’s behaviour through education and referrals. The fire department teaches fire safety, while Crossroads Children’s Centre, a mental health centre, steps in if the child or teen has mental health issues, he said. The intervention program was developed back in the 1980s, said Cutler, following in the footsteps of similar programs run in Toronto. “We typically deal with kids between the ages of six and 12,” said Cutler, adding the youths are usually referred by police or parents. More often than not, fire prevention officers will sit down with the whole family to discuss general fire safety tips, including having an escape plan and keeping fire sources (such as matches) out of reach from young fingers. “It’s strictly an educational program, but there are often family issues going on at the same time,” he said.

The Ottawa fire department’s youth fire setter intervention program educates youth about the dangers of setting fires, as well as safety precaustions. Fire prevention officer Peter Cutler said the program is meant to be for both parents and children. “Sometimes it’s just a matter of getting mom and dad on board with fire safety tips, and telling them how to reduce access to light sources, and to teach kids to not to be afraid of firefighters.” As children grow older, crimes could become more seri-

ous, said Cutler, “There is the potential they are involved in more crime at that age,” )_he said. The program takes up to three sessions and ends up being a positive experience for everyone involved, he said. The program’s success rate

“That was way to easy!”

is very high, said Cutler, and proves to be a lesson learned for the teen. “I’ve never had a kid come back for a second time,” he said. “So it’s a good success rate.” The greater percentage of children and teens who sets fires are male, Cutler added. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

Life-changing moment lands resident spot in best-selling book Riverview Park resident has short story published in Chicken Soup book Sabine Gibbins

sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – Moving forward has never come easy for Catina Noble. The Riverview Park resident admits she had always been a “cup half-empty” type of person. One day, she stumbled upon a short story in the best-selling “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Attitude Adjustment” book, which would ultimately lift her spirits. Noble, who has always loved to write, and recently published some of her poetry, decided she needed to adjust her own attitude and rebuild a relationship with a family member. A few years ago, Noble had experienced a falling out with her cousin, but wasn’t sure what it was about. Noble was later invited to her cousin’s wedding, but was unable to go due to another family commitment. She kept waiting for her cousin to apologize, but for what, she didn’t know. Noble realized she missed her friendship, and one day sat down to write a letter to her. A week later, the phone rang. It was Jenny calling to thank her for the letter. The two reconciled and spoke on the phone for over an hour. A few weeks ago, Noble met Jenny’s husband and children for the first time. This moment in her life changed her way of thinking, and now she’s looking at the world in a very differ-

the Soul” book. An avid reader of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series, Noble learned the publisher was on the brink of creating a new book entitled “Reader’s Choice”, in celebration of the series’ 20th anniversary, and decided to enter one of her stories last January. In March, she received an email from “Chicken Soup” co-author D’ette Corona telling her she had a good chance of having her story published in the book. A proof of her story, with mini-

mal edits, soon arrived in the mail. In April, she got the final answer: yes. Noble was overjoyed, as she has never had anything published in a book of this scale. “I was telling everybody, but I felt like an idiot after because I thought, ‘What if it doesn’t actually happen?’” she said. The message of the story was a resounding one for Noble: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” This theme rang true in her own story. As she writes in “Chicken Soup”, “Just repeating that sentence over and over again makes me feel more positive and changes how I feel and react to situations that I am not normally happy with.” When she called and told her cousin about the story being published, Jenny was ecstatic. Having this story published in a notable book such as “Chicken Soup” was a confidence booster, said Noble. “As a writer, you tell yourself to believe it (that your stories will get published), but it’s not until you actually see that it’s in print that it’s real.” A single mother of four, and with a bachelor of arts from Carleton University, Noble hopes to one day publish another short story (or two) in a “Chicken Soup” book. She says she has about a dozen pieces ripe for the picking for the novel. She’s also looking forward to publishing a collection of poetry. In total, Noble has had about 100 different written materials published in a variety of publications. Personally, this experience has taught Noble much about herself. “I’ve learned that persistence does pay off, and sometimes you don’t know what the other person is thinking or going through,:” she said. The book is available at local Chapters and other bookstores.

Quartier Vanier cancelled its farmers market at the end of June before it had a chance to open for 2013. Now local farmers can be found at different locations throughout the Quartier on Saturdays, including Maison Baguettes. “Its about taking part in a community,” he said. There is also talk of working towards re-launching the market in

There is also a petition available to sign online, at chn.ge/14Z5egd – or visit one of the stands at the market locations this Saturday.

It started on July 20, at Maison Baguettes, with a jazz band and a free barbecue to draw residents, Alpenblick Farms and Kiwan Farms set up from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Maison Baguettes owner Amos Mbenoun said it will continue every Saturday for the rest of the summer. “We need the market, we were part of it for the past three years and it was great,” Mbenoun said. He has offered up the space for free for the vendors. The shop added it hopes more vendors from the former market become involved. 0307.R0011951345

News - Only weeks after the market was all but cancelled, merchants in Vanier have joined forces to support a different kind of famers market this summer. The Quartier Vanier merchants association announced the cancellation of its summer market at the end of June, before it had the chance to open for the first weekend of the season. Only a week after that announcement, local merchants began stepping up to the plate to offer tiny pieces of land to local famers and longtime vendors in the neighbourhood. It started with gourmet food shop Jacobson’s on July 6, when owner Susan Jacobson let Rock’n’Root Farms sell their organic produce at a market stand outside the store. Cheryl Cadrin of Rock’n’Root said after the news of the cancellation, having a new location to sell in the area was very important to them. “For us, it was our only market. It was a good fit for us and when we lost it, we were scrambling a bit,” Cadrin said. “I think I was more disappointed because we had been there for five years and we had been cultivating a clientele and they were loyal to us. We wanted to be there for them.” Since that first day at Jacobson’s, Cadrin started a petition to ask residents if they wanted a market back permanently for 2014. “I don’t think it was right for Vanier to not have a market. It’s important,” she said. “It’s fair for people to have an option to buy local. The petition is also about asking if Vanier is interested, I can only say what I think. “Who wouldn’t want one, but that’s my business. I get excited about it, but this is on the community. I want the community to own this.” And the community has come out in support. According to Vanier Community Association president Mike Bulthuis, residents and members of the association began expressing their disappointment regarding the cancelled market. Now, the association is helping spread the word about Rock’n’Root’s new location and about new business owners stepping up to offer space for local farmers. “Our role is to try and rally the community and find ways for residents to support the market,” Bulthuis said.

O

nce again, city council has come up with a politically-savvy solution to the question of where to build a casino: build two of them. Last week, council members were slapping each other’s backs and tweeting merrily after they agreed to ask the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation for permission to build two gaming facilities in Ottawa. Never mind that the OLG has already denied such a request before. The provincial gaming authority has said numerous times that Ottawa’s “zone” can only accommodate one casino. Council’s vote is little more than an attempt to assuage the complaints from Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, who is hoping to bring a gaming facility to Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. If the OLG turns down Ottawa’s request for two casinos, the city will move ahead with its default location: the racetrack. This marvelous sleight of hand highlights the fact the casino’s location is a purely political decision made before any studies, consultation or rational debate has taken place. Earlier this month, the city’s finance committee approved sole sourcing the casino, located at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway, a motion proposed and pushed by Mayor Jim Watson. Never mind that the

mayor was flip-flopping on his previous promise to make the selection process an open competition. This was a decision based on political pressure. Lobby groups and supporters of the racetrack made their preference known, likely highlighting the 2014 municipal election date on Watson’s calendar. Melnyk wasn’t exactly thrilled with the mayor’s motion. Lawyer in tow, he showed up at the finance committee meeting and blasted council for not providing a level playing field for bids, suggesting the process wasn’t exactly legal. An independent legal review indicated it is legal. It certainly isn’t how council has conducted business in the past. Usually, the city allows an open bidding process and holds public consultations to figure out if residents want a proposed building/business in the first place. But why destroy a perfectly sound political decision with the principles of good decision making and democratic tradition? The mayor has dealt himself a winning hand, getting council to approve a plan that pleases everyone, yet has small chance of approval. We can only admire the shuffling ability of the mayor, who, like an experienced card shark has deftly maneuvered council to approve his motion. Two casinos? Now you see it, soon you won’t.

A place where you don’t have to be an expert

ere’s a scene from a cottage weekend. See if it seems familiar to you. Six guys, probably late teens, are on one of those pontoon boats. A pontoon boat is notoriously hard to manouevre, especially in a wind, and these guys are fishing off it. They’re trying to get through a narrow opening between two islands. The opening is shallow and the bottom is covered with large boulders. The boat is trying to find its way through. To make matters more interesting, at least one of the anglers has caught bottom. So they’re trying to avoid the boulders, get through the opening and also get the guy’s lure off the bottom. One of the guys stands in the bow, watching for rocks. “Stop!” he yells. “Reverse! Reverse!” The boat reverses, clumsily. Somehow the snagged hook is freed and the pontoon boat backs out of the narrow passage and safely into open water. Somehow the proverb: “God helps drunks and little children,” springs to mind, except that these guys weren’t little and they didn’t seem to be drunks either. Someone called out to them from the shore to ask how they were doing and they held up

a half dozen or so quite good-sized pickerel that they’d somehow managed to catch off this pontoon boat that they couldn’t steer very well. They were having the time of their lives and it served as a reminder of one of the great things about life at the lake in a Canadian summer: You don’t have to be good at it to enjoy it.

Watch the paddling and kayaking styles of the people who pass by the dock. In most of these activities, and with most people, there’s no great skill there, but there is a large amount of

enjoyment. What a relief it is, after the exacting demands of the city, to get to a place where it really doesn’t matter how much skill you have. Sure, it’s nice to be good at something. But it’s also nice when it doesn’t matter all that much. Beside a lake, there are no bosses, no alarm clocks, no buses to run after. Mastery of software does not enter into your existence. There are no updates to anything. There is no such thing as a cc, never mind a blind cc. There is no traffic – once you get there. There is very little in the way of self-improvement. It’s true that at some lakes, children are offered lessons in this or that, but they don’t last long and the kids might learn something they might be able to teach you. Not that it matters if you learn it all that well. The demands of cottage life are quite rudimentary. You have to be able to tolerate the noise children make. You have to be patient and learn to read a story out loud several times in a row. You have to be the kind of person dogs like. Knowing a few simple card games comes in handy. There are some basic safety things you have to learn, but they are mostly common sense. Even driving a boat, while not

all that easy, can be accomplished by a nonexpert, because the margin of error on a lake is wider than on a city street. Along the way, you find and settle into the activities at which you can be an expert, that you might have forgotten over the year – taking a nap, telling jokes, eating gooey desserts, singing off-key, walking through the woods, exaggerating, unloading a boat, using a flyswatter and figuring out whodunit. Easy. The rest of it is eating and sleeping, getting along with people and knowing when to wear a hat.

Addiction is the devil inside BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse theatre program for children in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, best known as the poorest postal code in Canada. Myself, I’ve had a life-long struggle with nicotine. I grew up in a smoking household and started smoking at the ridiculously young age of 13; this, despite spending most of my childhood begging my relatives to quit. I’ve quit many times over my adult life, always eventually returning to the comfort, satisfaction and inspiration that only cigarettes seem to provide. For those who are fortunate enough to have escaped addiction, it may seem there are lots of supports available to addicts. This is far from true. Young people, in particular, face up to two years’ waiting time for psychological services in Ontario. One report out of Quebec suggests as many as 220,000 people in the province require detoxification from drugs or alcohol, yet there are just a few

handfuls of residential rehabilitation programs, most requiring patients to pay out-of-pocket. As a result, too much pressure is put on family doctors and others on the frontline, who have neither the training nor resources to support addicts. For those, like me, who have struggled on and off with a nicotine addiction, it often comes down to individual resources and the ability to resist evil temptation in the longer term. Unfortunately, for those addicted to equally powerful street or prescription drugs, the same is frequently true.

At the height of a successful career, at the beautiful age of 31, ready to give back to his community as a mentor, Monteith, a wealthy celebrity and anti-drug crusader, took heroin and died. It seems unfathomable at a time when Monteith was, to use my previous metaphor, “as close to God” as he could get. Unfortunately, the devil was working pretty hard that night. A recent fundraising success in Ottawa is perhaps a great example of how we can work collectively to take the pressure off frontline medical workers and dedicate more to treatment and rehabilitation. Last year, a local fundraiser spearheaded by former police chief, (now Senator), Vern White, raised $2.25 million to build a 30-bed facility at the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre for youth addicts. White rated the fundraiser as one of the biggest successes in his 30 years as a police officer. Given how close the devil resides in all of us, I’d have to agree.

I

was very saddened to hear of the death of Glee actor Cory Monteith earlier this month. That he died of a heroin and alcohol overdose made his death even more tragic. Drug addiction – alcohol, tobacco, prescription or street drugs – is a powerful demon. Addiction is something that affects most of us, either personally, or because we have friends or family that struggle with addiction. Despite this, many of us fail to sympathize with addicts. Whether it’s the homeless person wandering the street, begging for change to help him get his next fix, or the successful, middle-aged, middle-class woman secretly downing a bottle of wine each night, we have little understanding of addiction and even less sympathy for the addict. “Why can’t they just get help?” Anyone who’s ever dealt with addiction, however, can relate to the old Christian adage, “The closer you are to God, the harder the Devil works to tempt you.” Addiction is a lot like that. For Monteith, this seems to be a harrowing reality. Not only was the actor fresh out of rehabilitation, but he died on the night he had dinner with the co-founder of Project Limelight. Monteith was planning to support the

Editorial missed the mark To the editor,

Your cynical editorial in the July 11 edition on Ontario’s byelections cannot go by unchallenged. The Ontario budget provided muchneeded investments in public transit, infrastructure and employment programs and home care initiatives. It also lowered auto insurance rates. More needs to be done, particularly in the area of improving social assistance. The News fails to acknowledge any of this – opting instead to parrot Opposition leader Tim Hudak. Elections Ontario has initiated strategies to encourage Ontario residents to

vote, with new voting options, a dedicated website and social media outreach efforts: wemakevotingeasy.ca. Your bizarre editorial fails to mention any of this. Politics does matter. You have a responsibility to discuss the issues and accurately inform your readers, not condemn the process. Your editorial does a disservice to readers who turn to The News for information and not a diatribe on issues which matter to the people of Ontario. Tony Wohlfarth The Glebe

To the editor,

After an hour of mowing my lawn at the end of a warm afternoon I poured myself a tall glass of cold refreshing beer. Unfortunately it was the last one on hand. To restock I’d have to drive 12 kilometres to Rockland or 15 kilometres to Orleans to a Beer Store. So it was with some dismay later to read Charles Gordon’s panning of why beer and wine should not be sold in corner stores.

His Funny Town column pokes a little humour at his fellow journalists pretending to be serious drinkers wanting more access to it. But then he points out the indecision of government ministers on this issue. He suggests that our provincial government needs to continue to keep its strict control and not let us get out of hand. Mr. Gordon states that it is difficult to see where the greater good is by allowing its sale in local corner stores. For me the greater good is to allow familyowned corner stores to have the

legal right to sell or not sell beer and wine as part of their business. For me the greater good is to have a free and open society where young people are taught at home, and to some extent at school, to choose food and drink wisely and consume them in moderation. It should be available on corner store shelves as much as tea, coffee, or soft drinks. Robert (Bob) Hawley Cumberland

Hydro Ottawa helps rebuild Pullen Avenue Group Home

news

Overbrook weighs in on infill Monthly meeting focuses on developments Michelle Nash

On July 16th, a group of Hydro Ottawa powerline maintainers and cable jointers generously lent their time and talents to connect the electrical service to the rebuilt Pullen Avenue Group Home, a 10-unit home for people with disabilities. Hydro Ottawa donated the use of their equipment, which included multiple vehicles, while its employees promptly answered the call to volunteer their time for this great cause. Personal Choice Independent Living, which operates the Pullen Avenue Group Home, is a non-profit organization offering housing and support services to people with physical disabilities and provides assisted living services to senior citizens in the community.

News - The Overbrook Community Association says every resident’s opinion counts when it comes to how infill and development affects their neighbourhood. The association’s July 18 monthly meeting saw residents discussing infill and new developments in the neighbourhood. A handful of residents attended the meeting, saying they were interested in how they could participate and learn more about the changes taking place in the area. Association president Sheila Perry started the meeting with an overview of the city’s Official Plan and told the residents how important it is for community groups to weigh in on the process of updating the plan. “My request to you is to make a couple of notes that come to mind specific to Overbrook,” she said. Perry members to focus their attention on topics such as affordability, urban land issues,

urban design and intensification, transit oriented development, public transit and the city’s plans to create “complete streets.” Overbrook is located just north of where a light rail station is planned at St. Laurent Shopping Centre and is subject to some development as a result, Perry said. She added that it is important as a community to start thinking about how and what residents would like to see in the neighbourhood. “What you suggest tonight will go directly to the association’s planning committee, who is currently working on developing our own community design plan,” Perry said. Usually created in conjunction with the city, a community design plan helps define future development in a neighbourhood. The Overbrook association took it upon themselves to start a CDP process and has been working on the plan for the past two years. The goal, the association said, is to define exactly what the community wants and use this tool when dealing with developers and the city. Perry called this plan a “wish list” and encouraged residents to send ideas to the committee in order for all input to be recorded. The plans to create a community design plan came on the heels of the approval of a

The Overbrook Community Association says infill developments are popping up all over the neighbourhood. The association held a special meeting to discuss infill and how the community would like to shape development for the future. 15-storey apartment building development on Presland Road. The development, which the community fought hard to stop, remains a sore spot and according to Perry the plan is aimed at stopping projects that, in the community’s opinion, do not fit in with the neighbourhood. “A lot of this is about us being vigilant,” Perry said. “This is about finding out what Overbrook wants.” Those who attended the meeting left with comment sheets to fill out and return to the association.

Board member David Stambrook asked when the association will compile the residents’ responses and report back to the community. Perry said the earliest would be in September, but the committee will try to have a draft available for electronic distribution prior to that meeting. All the information from the meeting, as well as information about concerns on development and infill, and links to the city’s official plan is available on the association’s website at overbrook.ca.

“Donating time and talents for this cause just goes to show how much our employees care about the community they serve,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. This in-kind contribution by Hydro Ottawa and IBEW Local 636 saved the non-profit organization approximately $9,000, which will be redirected to programming. “We’re truly grateful for Hydro Ottawa’s assistance with this project. I’m proud that Ottawa has corporate citizens who are willing to step up to the plate in supporting our mission to build a more inclusive society,” said Suzanne Béland, Executive Director of Personal Choice Independent Living. Hydro Ottawa and Personal Choice Independent Living would like to give special thanks to volunteers Jeff Magee, Dan Brennan, Scott Grace, Jordan Kerr, Dylan Sosnowsky, Dolton Henry and Jean Belanger.

meant a nice cool kitchen when we got back from our picnic on Sunday, a rare treat from a stove that blasted out blistering heat waves 24 hours a day, every other day of the week. As soon as we got back from church, and while the boys and Father tended to the last-minute chores in the barn, Audrey and Mother would haul bowls of food out of the ice box that had been prepared the night before. This meant hard boiled eggs, mashed fine, sliced cold pork and roast beef, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, and of course, a slab cake smothered in brown-sugar icing. It didn’t take long for thick sandwiches, sliced vegetables and a huge sealer of iced tea to be ready to pack into 11-quart baskets, all wrapped in an ample supply of clean flour-bag tea towels – we had enough food to feed half of Renfrew County! We would pile as much as we could on the little wagon with wobbly tin wheels, which I used to hitch our old collie dog to so my dolls could be pulled around the yard. It was better than lugging the heavy baskets down to the river. We always went to the same spot on the Bonnechere, where the old maple tree had long since fallen across the narrowest part of the river and where there was a wide grassy

and covered the little wagon with another to keep the lunch as cold as possible. Wearing short pants for bathing suits, my brothers were in the water almost as soon as we hit the river, Mother had propped herself against a tree with her books and papers spread around her,

ll Mother needed for an excuse to have a picnic was a sunny and hot Sunday afternoon – after church, of course. Father thought the whole idea was nonsense when you could spend the afternoon having a little nap in the grape arbour. “That once-a-year church picnic is enough for me,” he lamented. Father’s resting in the summer often moved him from the rocking chair in the kitchen with his feet on the oven door of the Findlay Oval to the grape arbour, where an old lawn chair and the two-seater swing sat in the cool haven of the overhanging grape leaves. But of course, as for the Sunday picnic, Mother overruled and we five children were thrilled beyond belief: we would be spending the afternoon on the banks of the Bonnecherre River. It was a hefty walk to get to the river, overloaded as we were with baskets of lunch, bats and balls, our swim suits and towels, Mother’s newspapers, scrap books and diaries. I always had to take at least one doll with me too. As long as Father had his pipe and a good supply of tobacco that was about all he was interested in lugging down to the river. The cook stove would be allowed to go out on Saturday night. That meant a cold breakfast, which further annoyed Father, who didn’t consider any meal worth pulling a chair up to the table for unless it included meat and potatoes. But Mother let the stove die down because that

Picnic leaves Father hungry Continued from page 15

Audrey and I hid behind a tree and stripped off our clothes and got into two suits Aunt Freda had sent us from Chicago. They were scratchy, made of pure wool, and as soon as they were wet, went as hard as cement, but they were all we had. Father walked around with his pipe hanging out of his mouth, not looking at all pleased. He asked Mother when she planned on taking out the lunch, lamenting that what he had for breakfast couldn’t really be called a decent meal. Mother said lunch was a long way off, and he might as well settle down and have a little nap.

The afternoon wore on. Emerson said he didn’t care if we ever went back home. The three boys had water fights, tried to catch fish with a makeshift pole and jumped off the fallen tree to see who could land the farthest. Audrey was reading her books borrowed from the Renfrew Library and I was playing with my doll, pretending she was a brand new baby and this was her first outing on a picnic. Well, Father never did settle down for a nap. He walked the shoreline, he lit and relit his pipe, and when he finally sat down with his back against a tree, he never took his eyes off the blanket covering the lunch. “Think I’ll head back to the barns to check on that cow that didn’t look too good

this morning,” he said. Even though we had yet to eat the lunch, I knew Father wouldn’t be back, and I knew too the cow had little to do with it. When the sun was heading for the west and we had eaten the lunch, the boys had dried off, and everything was packed onto the little red wagon, Father still hadn’t come back. Mother assured me he would be just fine. “He just doesn’t like picnics,” she said. We gathered up our belongings and started for home. I saw it before anyone else – there was smoke coming out of the chimney over our house. Mother just let out a long and laboured sigh when I pointed it out to her. We opened the kitchen door to blazing heat and there was Father

sitting at the old pine table. He hadn’t bothered taking off his straw hat and in front of him was a dinner plate piled high with fried potatoes, slabs of salt pork and enough buttered bread to feed a family of six. The white granite tea pot was boiling on the stove and Father had opened a jar of preserves and they weren’t in a fruit nappy, but in a soup bowl. “Well, so much for a nice cool kitchen,” was all Mother said. Finally, Father stopped shovelling in his food long enough to look up from his plate. “A man can’t be expected to work from dawn to dusk and survive on a sandwich and a piece of cake,” he said, taking another long slurp of hot tea from his saucer.

Lane reductions for Ogilvie this summer Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A portion of Ogilvie Road will be closed until Labour Day weekend to accommodate sidewalk curb renewals and the removal of bus bays. The affected section of Ogilvie is located between the Aviation Parkway and St. Laurent Boulevard. Crews will be working on the removal of bus bays, relocating catch basins and replacing concrete curbs on the road. Construction began on July 15 and will take place over the next six weeks in off-peak

hours. In an effort to accelerate construction, starting in August, work will take place in the evening as well. The city says the work is tentatively scheduled to be complete by Labour Day, weather permitting. No OC Transpo routes along Ogilvie will be affected. The Ogilvie Road rehabilitation is part of Ottawa on the Move, a $340-million city program aimed at ensuring there are a number of transportation choices for people before major construction of the light rail line begins and ahead of Canada’s 150th birthday cel-

ebrations in 2017. Projects include cycling infrastructure, bridges and structures and integrated road, sewer and water programs.

Fish and chips proceeds help troubled youth Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - More than 22,000 orders of haddock made a huge difference recently for Ottawa youth needing treatment for alcohol and drug abuse. A small fish and chips shop in Manor Park called Cats Fish and Chips made a donation of $23,177 to the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre on July 15. Dave Waltham, owner of the

shop, said the year-old business pledged last May when it opened to donate a dollar from every sale of haddock “Community has always been important to us,” Waltham said. “We wanted from day one to donate to a local charity.” The Bells Corners resident said he heard about the Dave Smith Youth and Treatment Centre when he was at church one day and decided it was all he needed to decide to help out. The orders added up and

R0012216466_0725

when the restaurant welcomed founder Dave Smith and board member Stephen McGill to accept the cheque, Smith said he was overwhelmed by the amount Waltham presented to them. The money means a lot to the centre, which is currently working at raising $5 million to build a permanent facility in Carp. “We don’t ask the families of the youth who come for a dime and the government won’t give us any money for the buildings,” Smith said. “When people make this kind of investment, locally, the money stays here and this donation, at this time, was unbelievable.” The centre helps young people aged 13-21 who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. It began, Smith said, 23 years ago with a day-treatment centre on Bronson Avenue and has since expanded to a 10-bed residential facility in Carp and a 14-bed residential facility in Carleton Place. The new building would feature 30 beds in one location. Smith said the new location, which would replace the existing two, would give counselors currently travelling between the different locations more time with clients.

Members of the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre joined Cats Fish and Chips owners Dave and Catherine Waltham at their restaurant to receive a cheque raised by the small business. McGill said the board has so far raised $700,000 for the new building and the plan is to raise the remainder and begin construction in the next two to three years. “The donation is critical to us operating,” McGill said. “Sub-

stance abuse is an issue amongst youth and really touches every corner of our community, they literally come from every family, every circumstance in Ottawa and the fact that we can offer a place to go is important.” Waltham said the shop is go-

ing to continue to donate to the centre, but will soon put their efforts towards another local charity. “We are thinking of expanding to different charities, there are lots of small charities that need help,” he said.

Airport Parkway Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge – Construction Update

Most of the formwork was removed from the newly poured, upper concrete tower. Once the formwork and supports are removed, the contractor will remove the work platform and all of the scaffolding that surrounds the tower. Over the coming weeks, after the scaffolding and formwork for the main tower are removed, the contractor will complete the remaining formwork for the main deck. Concurrently, the contractor is completing other work on-site which includes finishing the rubbing of the existing poured concrete surfaces with cement mortar, prefabricating the parapet wall forms, placing the expanded polystyrene light weight fill material and backfilling earth under the west approach structure. I can also advise you that City operational staff and external engineers are undertaking a final review of the design to ensure that it meets all of the required design standards. Please know that I am advocating on behalf of all taxpayers to ensure that City staff and the external contractor and designer are held accountable for their respective roles and legal responsibilities. I will continue to closely monitor the progress on this project to ensure that this connection is built safely and to the highest quality standards.

Council rolls the dice on two gambling sites City will discuss protecting slots at the raceway and adding a new casino

But it won’t be the first time the mayor has asked for two gambling sites in Ottawa. Watson has previously written to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and provincial officials to ask for a “satellite facility” to complement gaming operations at the raceway. He received no response. That’s different than asking for two gambling sites in the form of two gaming zones for Ottawa, Watson said, so he’s hoping for more success this time around – especially since he now has the support of council. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry was among those who pointed out that the city has misstepped as it tries to react to a process dictated by the OLG.

News - City council is doubling down by asking the province if Ottawa can have two gambling sites. While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa – at the Rideau Carleton Raceway – the vote on July 17 means councillors would like to see another casino site in addition to keeping at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway. The move was in response to what Mayor Jim Watson and councillors have been hearing from residents, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who proposed the motion. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson represents the raceway in his ward. He said he brought the largest petition he can recall a politician presenting: a 70,000-signature petition supporting saving jobs at the raceway by keeping gambling there. “There must be a fair and open process for casino bidding,” Watson said, adding that he feels there has been plenty of consultation on the issue already. All members of council supported Tierney’s move to refer the discussion to a special meeting of the finance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 so public delegates could come speak to the concept of creating two gambling zones in Ottawa. But that doesn’t mean the idea of having two casinos has unanimous support around the council horseshoe. One of the most vocal casino opponents, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, dissented on the parts of the motion asking for

City council would like to see two casinos in Ottawa – one at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, above, and another in an undecided location. It remains to be seen if the city will consider the idea. two gambling zones for Ottawa. “This is confirmation of a predetermined outcome that we want more gaming in Ottawa,” Deans said, noting that perhaps the city might want to do more consultation on the matter before coming to that conclusion. That’s why she voted in favour of sending the matter to the committee on Aug. 26. The move made other councillors happy, though, because it removed the perception that city council is fa-

vouring one community institution – the raceway – over another, like the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre. Sens owner Eugene Melnyk’s pleas to let him bid for a casino at the arena were shot down at a recent committee meeting when councillors voted to limit gambling to the raceway. Tierney’s motion at the July 17 council meeting could re-open the door for a casino in Kanata or elsewhere in the city. “This somehow devolved (into

something) about saving jobs,” said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who was the seconder on Tierney’s motion. “ The debate about gambling resulted in pitting two community resources against each other … This motion restores fairness.” “It gives everyone a chance to be at the table,” said Orléans Coun. Bob Monette, who was among the councillors who wanted to protect the raceway but be fair to other casino bidders at the same time.

where the rubber hits the road - literally.

“This is a lesson in what not to do,” he said. “It’s really hard to turn a big ship after it’s been sailing for a while.” Other councillors wanted city staff to prepare a report on the socio-economic impacts of expanding gambling in Ottawa. Council has already ordered such a report, but it wouldn’t be undertaken until after a casino location had been proposed. If Tierney’s motion was accepted by the committee in August, it would kick off such a study, but only for the raceway location. KnoxdaleMerivale Coun. Keith Agli said he planned to ask for an amendment to ensure the study looks at the possibility of more than one gambling site. “We should understand what kind of problem we could be creating,” said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, who is not in favour of a new casino. “In a way, the point is moot to me today about how many casinos we have and where they are located.”

Richmond Underground gets council’s approval City vows to work with NCC to get its OK Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

submitted

An artist’s sketch shows a cross-section of tunnel along the proposed western LRT line.

News - Residents’ ire over the proposed Richmond Underground lightrail route was nowhere to be seen as city council unanimously approved the plan on July 17. Despite hearing from a chorus of unhappy residents in a day-long transportation committee meeting two weeks before, councillors approved the route with no debate at the council meeting. Approving a route for the future extension of light rail west of Tunney’s Pasture means the city’s chosen Richmond Underground route is close to becoming enshrined in the city’s transportation master plan. The route would start at Tunney’s Station and run 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.

Send a Strong Message 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.

Council has committed to looking at the cost and feasibility of burying that remaining 500 m through the field – something the National Capital Commission, which owns the land, has said is essential if the city wants its blessing. The route would require the NCC to grant the city access to about a kilometre of its land along the parkway and the NCC’s board has twice voted against the city’s plan to run trains – even in a trench – along the road. The NCC issued a terse news release shortly after council’s vote to re-iterate that the federal agency has the final say over how its land along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway will be used. “Notwithstanding today’s decision by Ottawa city council of the Richmond Underground as the preferred corridor for the light rail, the decision as whether to build or not on federal lands in this corridor will remain with the National Capital Commission board of directors,” the news release reads. The NCC’s board will focus on two key concerns when it looks to make a decision, the news release continues: unimpeded, continuous access to the land along the Ottawa River and minimal visual impact on the landscape quality and the experience of people who go there. Half an hour later, Mayor Jim Watson responded in an open letter sent to NCC board chairman Russell Mills and the media. Watson assured Mills the city will continue to work with the

NCC on the route. “We fully appreciate and understand that the NCC is in a position to establish conditions,” Watson wrote. “We are confident that we have identified a budget and an approach that can accommodate every aspect of the NCC’s motion as design progresses.” City staff has 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 Marion Simulik. “Every time we whittle a dollar away, it eats into that $4 billion envelope for rail till 2031,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. During a transportation committee meeting on July 5, deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said staff has 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 2017 or 2018. It would carry 1,300 passengers in each direction during the peak hour by 2031.

Main Street to be made ‘complete’ Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A heated discussion about making Main Street “complete” ended in the result Old Ottawa East residents were looking for: reduced car lanes, added cycling lanes and wider sidewalks. The two-lane, “complete street” makeover for Main Street was approved by council on July 17, but construction won’t get underway until August of next year, after the detailed design is completed. The ward’s councillor, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, said council’s 18-6 vote was a huge win for the community. “Main Street has degraded as a place to live, a place to walk, a place to own a business or develop,” he said. “This will be a boost for businesses and development.” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley has been outspoken in his objection to the completestreet makeover. He worried that approving the format would set the stage for city staff to recommend a complete street for arterial

roads and main streets in the suburbs, like his community. “I’m supportive of this type of complete street when it’s within a community,” Hubley said, adding that main streets and arterial roads are “not streets we can restrict traffic on.” Mayor Jim Watson was also in support of the revamp because he said it will slow down traffic and make the area safer, which are the top issues he hears about from residents across the city. “This is a very progressive thing to do,” the mayor said, adding he hopes to see more “complete streets” in other communities. Transportation committee chairman Keith Egli, councillor for Knoxdale-Merivale Ward, has been a champion for the complete-street makeover. He said it “is not an inflexible template.” “A complete street in Kanata might not look at all like a complete street in Coun. Chernushenko’s ward,” Egli said. “There are criteria, but it’s a flexible approach to dealing with roads.

Submitted/City of Ottawa

City council approved a ‘complete street’ vision for Main Street that will see it reduced from four vehicle lanes to two and include the addition of cycling lane tracks, more on-street parking and wider sidewalks. Project manager Ron Clark from Delcan, the consulting firm the city hired for the proj-

peak times. When the street is rebuilt, it could handle 900 vehicles in the same period

ect, said Main Street can currently handle 1,200 vehicles in both direction per hour in

with no traffic delays, or the same 1,200-vehicle volume as today, but with a three-minute delay. “It’s giving more mobility options. It’s not saying you have to walk or cycle,” said Chernushenko, who has a reputation as a cycling advocate and environmentalist. “ It’s saying that if you were too scared, now you can.” Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder was completely opposed to the idea. She said she doesn’t want an assumption ever, or at least in the next decade, that the city would put a similar type of complete street in a suburban area. Harder and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume said they hoped getting a complete street for Main Street would make Old Ottawa East residents more willing to accept the Alta Vista Transportation Corridor – a new bridge from the hospital area across the Rideau River, connecting to Lees Avenue in Old Ottawa East. But Hume also said he didn’t think the issue was as “dramatic” as other councillors made it out to be.

The free event featured bread baking in a clay oven, quilt making and antique farm equipment, as well as live music, a barbecue and strawberry social, games and contests, a craft tent, and displays from local artists. Children enjoyed the mix of old and new amenities, having fun on a bouncy castle, and nibbling on freshly baked tea biscuits hot out of the oven.

Lifestyle - Reading is an important life-long skill – and developing strong reading habits from an early age sets the stage for life. “While we know that it’s important for young children have strong reading skills, getting kids to embrace reading is not always as simple,” says Nick Whitehead, the founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. Fortunately there are several strategies that parents can take to help their kids improve both their love of reading and their reading skills.

in today’s paper

According to Dr. Whitehead, the number one thing that parents can do to improve their child’s reading ability is to simply make books available in the home and to have a regular reading time. He also suggests some other simple ideas to encourage reading such as going to the library together, reading books together as a family, reading a book series, or listening to audio books in the car. For parents who have tried all the basic tips and still have difficulty getting their children to embrace reading, Dr. Whitehead suggests that parents of older children give their kids banned books or let them read above their skill level. Studies have shown that telling a child a book is banned sparks their interest to read it more. For younger children, parents can stop reading right at a pivotal point to guarantee that children become interested enough to read on by themselves to find out what happens next. News Canada

Inquest into toddler’s death part of provincial investigation Brier Dodge

Photos of Jérémie Audette were displayed at a splash pad renaming in his honour. The Orléans toddler drowned at an unlicensed daycare in 2010. Inquest recommendations will be factored into the provincial ombudsman’s recently announced investigation.

MAKE IT HAPPEN

NOW!

News - The Jérémie Audette inquest will play a part into the Ontario ombudsman’s recently announced investigation of unlicensed daycares. Jérémie, 2, drowned in the pool of an unlicensed daycare provider in Orléans in 2010. A corner’s inquest was launched into his death, which made several recommendations surrounding home pools and home daycares. Recommendations made by the coroner’s inquest jury last December included matching the ratio of adults to children at both licensed and unlicensed daycares, and requiring all unlicensed daycares to register with the provincial Ministry of Education. Currently, licensed daycare providers must include their own children in total children being cared for, with a cap of five. In unlicensed daycares, the provider’s own children aren’t counted in the five allowed. Ombudsman André Marin announced July 15 that he would investigate how the “That was way to easy!”

Ministry of Education responds to complains and concerns about unlicensed daycare providers. “Our investigation will certainly look at the Jérémie Audette case and the inquest recommendations, as well as any other previously reported serious incidents or coroner’s investigations involving issues with unlicensed daycares,” said the ombudsman’s director of communications, Linda Williamson, via email. 30 investigations

The investigation comes on the heels of a child’s death at a home-based daycare in Vaughan, Ont. There have only been about 30 investigations of this type since 2005. The have looked at topics ranging from the property tax assessment system to funding for cancer drugs. Anyone who has information that might be relevant to the investigation is asked to contact the Ombudsman’s office at 1-800-263-1830, or email info@ombudsman. on.ca. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

neighbours regarding the proposal, this particular property is not in New Edinburgh’s designated heritage district. Chapman said she took that into consideration when she was purchasing property in the area. “It’s a very modern aesthetic,” she said. “I have chosen a modern aesthetic, because it looks great and I think people want that. I purposely bought in the non-heritage area because of that.” Mason said she was granted the opportunity to meet with city staff about the proposal and said she is hopeful this will help sort out some of the community’s larger concerns. According to Chapman, who has owned the property for the past three years, she has met with neighbours about her plans and fully intends to continue having an open conversation about the development.

News - A new infill conversion proposed in New Edinburgh has drawn the ire of neighbours and the community’s heritage committee. The proposal will see the home at 308 MacKay St. be converted into a three-storey, four unit condominium featuring below-grade parking and balconies. Area residents attended a special New Edinburgh Community Alliance heritage committee meeting on July 10 to discuss the proposal. Heritage committee member, Joan Mason said the group will fight the proposal which, in their opinion, does not comply with the city’s definition of intensification. “The mass of this new complex does not reflect the other buildings in the area, the balconies do not respect the immediate neighbours and we don’t believe she (property owner Linda Chapman) is saving the house,” Mason said at the meeting. The alliance heritage committee made a formal submission to the city’s committee of adjustment concerning the property which stated the community supports intensification and believes the site in question is an appropriate spot for intensification, but does not agree with this particular proposal, citing outstanding questions such as what will be the effect on surrounding properties from the excavation of the underground parking lot, a lack of a hydrology report and issues surrounding the removal of a mature tree on the property line. The lack of a shade study is also mentioned. Neighbours who attended the special meeting on the proposal, including immediate neighbour Christopher Hamilton, did not agree and questioned whether the build was in fact a conversion. “This is not a renovation or a conversion,” Hamilton said at the meeting. “I think she is going to knock it down.” In an interview, Chapman said the existing home’s structure will remain intact and serve as main walls for the new build. The existing basement will become the parking garage. Chapman, who is an architect, added she is not concerned the home will

fall down during construction. “It’s a matter of proper construction, but it will be fine,” she said. “Existing house the structure is there and is remaining.” On July 17, Chapman’s proposal went to the committee of adjustment, where it is seeking variances for the property. A request from Hamilton to postpone the meeting because of concerns regarding the plans to demolish Chapman’s portion of a shared semi-detached garage was granted to discuss the plans with other neighbours. Chapman said she has already planned to meet with Hamilton about the garage. “I am entitled to take down my garage and the garage is semi-detached, and there is a party wall that separates the two,” Chapman explained. “It just comes down to a need of discuss how we make sure his remaining garage wall is sturdy.” Although the heritage committee is involved in representing the

Council approves townhomes in Chapel Hill

Developer says city should better explain infill policies to neighbours to reduce conflict Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Developer Domicile got approval for the townhomes it wants to build in Chapel Hill from city council on July 17, to the chagrin of neighbours residing in single-family homes. AndrĂŠ Thivierge, co-chairman of the Chapel Hill Residents Committee, called the result a disappointment. He said councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; arguments over the plan to allow stacked townhomes of up to 12 metres tall on the former Roger Bergeron and Sons property focused on the process, not the substance of the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very clear that it had been decided before the meeting,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The info we provided was definitely not taken into account.â&#x20AC;? An attempt by Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess and OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette to restrict buildings along La Chapelle Street to three-storey, single-family homes got some traction at the planning committee stage but was shot down by city council. John Doran, president of Domicile, reflected on the bittersweet council win two days later before a speech at city hall.

Submitted/Domicile

Developer Domicile got councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval on July 17 to build about 50 townhome units at a new development in Chapel Hill. He said the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction to the development was also a â&#x20AC;&#x153;huge disappointmentâ&#x20AC;? to him because his company tries hard to engage with neighbours. But he said the opinion of professional land-use planners holds more weight in his mind, and he stands by the development as an example

in themselves, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard going into a neighbourhood like that in OrlĂŠans because they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it,â&#x20AC;? he said. He placed the blame for the conflict on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intensification policies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want intensification in the suburbs â&#x20AC;Ś Well then, make the change. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it. Be clear with people like me. I can live with it. I can live with no infill in the suburbs, but make up your mind.â&#x20AC;? Thivierge saw it a different way. He referenced the second phase of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infill study, which is looking at parameters to guide the height and mass of infill homes in neighbourhoods inside the Greenbelt (not including OrlĂŠans). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lifestyle of suburban communities,â&#x20AC;? Thivierge said â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially multiple-car ownership. An expensive appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board is unlikely, Thivierge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The decision has been made and we have to live with it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Now the community is hoping to work in partnership with Domicile through the site-plan process to â&#x20AC;&#x153;minimize the collateral damage,â&#x20AC;? Thivierge said, referring to the potential effect of townhomes on neighbouring single-family dwellings.

City pushes Arts Court plan despite funding rejection laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city pushed forward with plans to redevelop Arts Court last week despite the federal government rejecting its request for $9 million needed to build the project. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he found out the feds tossed out the funding request by reading an Ottawa Citizen story about the letter, which was sent to deputy city manager Steve Kanellakos on July 9. “I’m disappointed because we’ve asked for $9 million. To be brutally honest, we didn’t expect $9 million, but we expected something,” Fleury said. “To turn around and say ‘Ottawa, don’t come to the feds for all your priorities’ – we’re not.” The project is still listed at the top priority in the city’s arts, culture and heritage action plan and it’s the only request the city made under the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund more than a year ago, Fleury said. The letter from Marie Moliner, regional executive director of Canadian Heritage, says that the city’s $9-million request amounts to a third of the total annual budget for that nationwide fund. Fleury, Mayor Jim Watson and city staff were set to discuss next steps and strategies for re-opening the funding discussion.

“This project needs to happen, but I don’t know at this point,” Fleury said. “It leaves me with a lot of questions, a lot of doubt. I’m still confident that in the end we’ll find some way of getting in done – maybe not in the same timeline.” Those questions went unanswered even as the city’s planning committee was asked to support rezoning the site to pave the way for the future privatepublic partnership redevelopment. The committee unanimously approved that rezoning, including permitting a 23-storey tower at the corner of Waller and Daly streets, on July 16. The city is hoping to make $3.5 million to put towards the project by selling the air rights for that tower, which could become a hotel, condo tower or offices, depending on a proposal from an interested private builder. density

A couple residents of a neighbouring Claridge condo tower spoke to the committee to warn them against adding more people into an area that’s already packed with people and noisy trucks. “You guys don’t understand…” an emotional Graham Gleddie shouted at the committee. “It’s a hellish nightmare of noise from truck traffic.” Gleddie has been living in his con-

change and the Ontario Municipal Board would probably reject an appeal because it wouldn’t match the city’s planning bible – it’s Official Plan.

One of the architects the city hired for the project, Mitchell Hall, said the new Ottawa Art Gallery portion would be a 3,260 square-metre “elegant box” tucked in along the existing north-south stone wall that divides the site. The city is looking at having the gallery building serve as a billboard for art, perhaps using projection or a digital sign, Hall said. A 250-seat screening room, a café and a black-box theatre on Waller Street for the University of Ottawa is also part of the concept. The university will pay $5 million for that portion while the city and other potential partners such as the federal government would cover the remaining $31 million. Open space, seating areas and sculpture courts would buffer the new buildings along Daly, leading into the main entrance, and along Waller. The adjacent former jailhouse is now a privately-owned hostel and not up for redevelopment.

animal’s needs or bring it to the OHS. People who take the free kitten, don’t sterilize it, and then let it roam are a major source of unwanted litters. In an Ottawa climate, one cat and her offspring can potentially produce a stunning 172,000 kittens in only seven years. Unvaccinated cats become a source of infection that eventually migrates to any place where cats come to together in significant numbers, such as a feral cat colony or a shelter. Please spay and neuter your pets and recognize that for a responsible pet owner, there’s no such thing as a free kitten.

Avoid making an important decision this week, Aries. Your mind is busy with too many ideas, and you will not be able to focus all of your attention on one task. Taurus, you may find you are focused on your finances this week. It’s a good time to assess spending habits and make some changes for the better. Gemini, you may find that luck is on your side this week and you can use this to your advantage. Take some risks you might normally be hesitant to take. You certainly are in the spotlight this week, Cancer. All of this attention may try your nerves, so you may be interested in hiding out somewhere. Later in the week, you will have the chance. Leo, a discussion with a friend could be significant this week, inspiring you to expand your goals and pursue new dreams with confidence. Be thankful for the newfound inspiration. Protect your privacy this week, Virgo. Though nothing serious is on the horizon, now is a good time emphasize safety and security for you and your family.

Restlessness settles in this week, Libra. You might want to plan a little adventure, whether it is a weekend trip or a night out on the town. The goal is to change the scenery. Scorpio, stay on top of bills, paperwork and anything else that helps you to get organized. Once you’re finished catching up, resolve to be more organized going forward. You will have to put forth some extra effort this week, Sagittarius. It may feel like others aren’t pulling their weight, but you still need to do what you have to do to get the job done. Capricorn, take some extra time cleaning up in anticipation of an unexpected guest. While company is always welcome, you want to have a tidy home to show off. Aquairus, enlist others to lend a helping hand this week. Others may not offer their time and effort, so be proactive in seeking help with an important task. Pisces, it may be tempting to stay at home. But you have responsibilities, and they need to be tended to. You can always relax once your work is done.
