Perley project touted by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty Eddie Rwema

eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – A seniors’ village housing program in Alta Vista will offer a “home away from home” for veterans and seniors, said Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty. The $5.4-million Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre project, funded by the federal and provincial governments, will have 139 apartments, including 45 units of affordable housing. The units will be available starting January 2013. “We’ve all come to understand that it’s much less expensive to have quality affordable housing available for seniors than it is to have them hospitalized or in long-term care homes - especially when we complement that housing with home care which we are continuing to expand as part of our health care policy in Ontario,” said McGuinty, who visited the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre in Alta Vista on July 19. He added that his government plans to invest another $500 million to support affordable housing over the next five years, in addition to the $183 million invested in lowincome housing units since 2009. The Perley and Rideau health centre is already home to 250 veterans of the Second World War. See HOUSING, page 2

Teen releases song for Do It For Daron Eddie Rwema

eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – A 14-yearold Riverside South singer and songwriter is using the power of music to help raise money and spread a positive message about mental health. Singer Chelsea Kisil said music can be a positive force for mental health and has released a song with a positive message about mental health. Kisil’s song Honey Doll is now selling on iTunes and all sales will go towards Do It For Daron (DIFD), a youth-

driven initiative focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health. “The song has been out on iTunes for nearly three weeks and we’ve gotten 44 sales already from three continents and four countries. (I’m) so happy.” said Kisil. “It’s a good start and we are hoping to get more money from it, because of the message behind the song.” Her goal is to raise at least $100,000. “I am hoping to raise all the money by July of 2013,”

said Kisil. Created by friends and family of Daron Richardson who took her own life at the young age of 14, the group said Do It For Daron is inspired by hope for a future where young people will reach out for help without fear or shame. The initiative supports programs and initiatives aimed at transforming youth mental health. Kisil wrote Honey Doll to use it as therapy to help heal her friend who she says was having some difficulties with

mental health. The message she says she wants to pass across is that about love, respect and believing in yourself. “The reason I wrote the song is because my friend was going through really hard time,” said Kisil. “She was having the same mental health issues like Daron had.” Seeing first hand (from a friend) the impact mental health can have on one’s life is what inspired her.

Housing program to provide 139 apartment units for seniors Continued from 1

Twenty to 30 per cent of the new apartments will be offered to Canadian Forces senior veterans. “Right now we have more than 120 applicants on the waiting list at this point and we are going to start signing leases in the next little while,” said Akos Hoffer, chief operating officer of the health centre. According to the centre, Ottawa is home to more than

90,000 seniors and 23 per cent of those need help with the basic activities of daily living, such as meal preparation, shopping, personal care and housework. “We are bringing together a batch of different services that seniors need in one place.

The centre will provide seniors with more choices like privacy of independent apartment living, or the security of assisted living for those who want to maintain their independence but need a little help. “Our sense is there is a really yearning for that in terms of the community,” said Hoffer.

Teen singer does it for Daron Continued from 1

“Mental health is a big problem. Many of my friends have had some difficulties and I know some who have even tried committing suicide. I thought the song would be a good thing to help those going through that hardship,” said Kisil. “Because you are going to commit suicide doesn’t mean you are going to become famous. People can still think you are amazing when you are living.” Kisil started singing when she was 12 and produced her first song at age 13. The teenager said she loves the music of Taylor Swift, and idolizes her. “I love her because she writes her own music and expresses herself that way. That’s how she inspires me,” said Kisil. “I have seen Swift once in concert, but I hope to go again someday, maybe even open for her.” Her other inspiration is Carrie Underwood, who she says has a phenomenal voice. “I try and get my voice close and closer to hers everyday I practice,” said Kisil. The young teen is so far very happy with the feedback and support she’s been getting from the public. “The feedback has been

fantastic,” said Kisil, adding that her mother Michelle has been her biggest fan. Though she hopes to pursue a career in music, she doesn’t plan to try and earn money for herself until she completes the Do It For Daron fundraiser. “I have received tons of support from people. These kids and the foundation need money (more) than I do,” said Kisil. The teen said it’s reward enough to be able to record her own music. Kisil’s mother, who is also a teacher, also understands the threat mental health is having on young children. “As a teacher, you see mental health starting at a very young age. I am so proud she is doing this,” said Michelle. She said it is incumbent upon parents to put stigma aside and start talking to their kids about dangers of mental health. “When you are 13 and your best friend is not talking to you anymore – that is serious stuff. As parents we can’t let that happen. We need to let them know, help them and prepare them to be able to handle the future,” she said. Kisil’s’ song is available on iTunes, CD Baby and on Amazon.

Old Ottawa South community helps fire victims EMC news - An Old Ottawa South family has been overwhelmed by the generosity of members of the community, after they were displaced following a fire that affected two houses on Hopewell Avenue. Ottawa Fire Services responded to a call on July 14 shortly before 8 p.m. after a tree caught fire in front of a house at 128 Hopewell Ave. The fire quickly spread to the house and the neighbouring residence at 126 Hopewell Ave. The fire left a single mother, her 11-year-old daughter and three university students homeless and caused an estimated $1 million in damage. Members of the community, along with the Ottawa South Community Centre, were quick to offer a helping hand to those affected by the blaze and are organizing different fundraising events to raise money for the victims. The centre’s Girls Fit ’n’ Fun Camp held a Hopewell Fire Fundraiser on July 19 at Windsor Park. Organizers sold hot dogs, pop and water with all proceeds going to the victims. “It is amazing and a little bit overwhelming,” Beth Gorham, one of the fire victims who lived on 128 Hopewell Ave., said of the community support. “It just goes to show you why

people are so dedicated to the community and feel at home here in Old Ottawa South.” Gorham said the support has turned the tragedy that befell her and her daughter into something so positive the she says they will never forget. “Everybody watches out for everybody else here. I can’t imagine living any place else. We are very grateful,” said Gorham. “I would like to say how appreciative my daughter and I are of the overwhelming support we have received.” The Girls Fit ‘n’ Fun Camp had planned a different fundraiser, but decided to raise money for the fire victims. “The girls were really interested in raising money for the families that were affected by the fires on Hopewell Avenue and we thought it was a fabulous cause,” said Aletha Phillips, organizer of the Girls Fit ‘n’ Fun Camp. She said the fundraiser helped show the kids how you can have fun and give back to the community at the same time. “It is important for the girls to learn to give back and how important being there for members of your community is in time of need,” Phillips said. “It is something that is very dear to them.” For eight-year-old Anneka Dallin O’Grady, it means a lot giving back to the community. “It is nice to donate to people. It means a lot to me and I

wanted to do it,” she said. The organizing efforts began the day after the fire and a Facebook page was created for those looking to lend a hand. More than 70 people have already shown their support to the victims and the fundraising efforts, offering clothing, food and furniture. “As a neighbor and human being I feel the need to make all of us aware of this event,” Maria Jose Avendaño posted on the Facebook page. “We can all help get them on their feet again. The street feels empty and walking outside my house is now different. Taking a look at the ‘new view’ of my front porch is horrific. This is not stopping Hopewell and the sense of unity amongst the neighbors grows everyday.” The fire affected more than just those living at 126 and 128 Hopewell. Hydro wires fell on houses and the road, forcing

EMC news - While it’s not an opportune time to find a new chief executive, Marie Lemay’s departure from the National Capital Commission will do little to interrupt or change the direction of the Crown corporation’s work, its board chairman said. “I don’t think we will be missing any beats in moving these things forward,â€? Mills said. After four years at the head of the federal agency that plans and manages Canada’s capital region, Lemay is leaving to take a senior federal public service appointment as associate deputy minister of infrastructure. Decisions on things like the NCC’s rejection of light rail on the Ottawa River Parkway won’t change, said Russ Mills, chairman of the NCC board of directors. “No. The CEO is the communicator,â€? Mills said. “Maybe people perceive that because of that, she is the decision maker, but actually the decision maker is the board. The board will be continuing in place.â€? Mills was set to meet with the relevant federal ministries this week to hammer out a plan and a timeline for seeking an interim and permanent replacement for Lemay. Last time around, the Crown corporation received 60 applications for the role of chief executive before choosing Lemay, Mills said. “I think Marie Lemay did a great job as CEO of the NCC,â€? Mills said. “We need to continue on  the path that we’ve been fol-

Celebrations for Canada’s sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, in 2017 are also getting underway. “We are deep into the planning cycle now,� Mills said, but he doesn’t anticipate Lemay’s departure will have a negative impact on those projects.

which properties are essential to the NCC in fulfilling its mandate, and which are less essential,� Mills said. The revenues could be used to buy “things that are more important,� he added. A CEO who steps into the role at that time will need a strong communications background and a willingness to engage the public in a discussion about what the NCC does, Mills said. As for her advice to her successor, Lemay said they should be prepared for a unique and interesting role. Continuing to “walk the talk� of transparency and openness will be paramount, she said. “That takes effort. That takes time. But it’s so, so important,� Lemay said.

Mills said he expects to see the NCC sell some parcels of LEGACY land. “We will be able to review Lemay said her proudest everything that we own and achievement is leaving the make some decision about NCC a more transparent and

open organization than when she arrived in 2008. At that time, board meetings were not open to the public and the role of CEO and board chair was combined. The organization had just begun to embark on a transparency initiative. “That’s one of the reasons I took on this role – I wanted to champion that,â€? Lemay said. Improving the way the NCC communicates its role to the public is another achievement, she added. That ties into her success in leveraging other partners in the public and privates sectors, Lemay said. Still, Lemay said, those efforts were fought against a challenge all NCC heads have faced and will continue to face: the complexity of the capital region and its many overlapping municipal, provincial and federal jurisdictions. “There is nothing we can really do alone. We have to work with partners,â€? she said. “It’s actually an opportunity because there is a lot of expertise and a lot of resources. If you can find a way to leverage that, the sky’s the limit ‌ I think the partners are now all starting to see this.â€? Before coming to the NCC, Lemay was CEO of Engineers Canada for almost eight years after an earlier stint in municipal public service. She was born in Quebec City, but moved to the capital region when she was a child and was raised in Gatineau. She graduated from the University of Ottawa with a bachelor degree in engineering and continues to live in Chelsea, Que. Her new role will return her more closely to the practice of engineering she stepped away from at the NCC, she said.

Thirty homes in the area were also temporarily evacuated due to smoke created by the fire. Early results of an investigation indicate the fire started on the grass of the property, then extended to a tree and then the home. The exact cause of the fire, however, remains under investi-

gation. It was a busy week for the Ottawa Fire Services, which received more than 680 calls from July 9 to 15. Spokesman Marc Messier said the calls ranged from false alarms to fires to car accidents, but said a lot of factors, including the dry weather, have played a role in the number of telephone calls.

Now that summer has arrived, the itch has set in to get outside and resume exciting outdoor runs instead of logging hours on the dreaded treadmill. Visualize a cool, clear, Sunday afternoon as you prepare to head out for a jog. Your running shoes are tightly tied and right before you begin, you complete your usual stretching routine: one or two minutes of hamstring and calf stretches, and then you’re off. Right? Wrong! A cold muscle should never be stretched in any way. You should always complete a warmup before you stretch. Contrary to popular belief, stretching is not warming up; it is only one part of your warm up. A proper warm up typically includes 5 minutes of aerobic activities such as running in place

or skipping rope to get your heart pumping. Increased blood flow to your muscles decreases the likelihood of injury and increases flexibility. Once your warm up is complete, you should perform dynamic stretches as opposed to static ones if you are about to partake in any sort of athletic activity. Static stretches consist of long sustained holds, where dynamic stretches include slow controlled movements such as arm circles, knee, and hip rotations. This type of stretching prepares you for exercise that include a lot of dynamic activity. One of the most common mistakes people make is to perform static stretches before their fitness session followed by nothing afterwards. The time and

place for static stretching is after your workout or athletic event. Static stretches should be held for approximately 30 seconds to obtain maximal muscle lengthening and flexibility. A visit to yourlocal Family Physiotherapist can help maximize your flexibility and prevent injury by developing a detailed stretching regimen for you to follow.

Shootings cause for concern, not revolution

A

recent spike in the number of gangrelated shootings in Toronto and Ottawa has alarmed both residents and the police forces in those cities. Toronto police are investigating the third shooting death in that city over a span of three days, the city’s 30th homicide in 2012. The same day he called Toronto “the safest city in the world,” Toronto Mayor Rob declared war on gang-related

crime. The mayor called for a meeting with Premier Dalton McGuinty to request support for a crackdown on gang violence. Meanwhile, in Ottawa, the police issued a report last month naming the city one of the safest municipalities in Canada. But police have also expressed alarm over the number of shootings this year. There have been 27 shootings in Ottawa so far this

year, four more than all of 2011. More than half of this year’s shootings are gang-related, said Ottawa police, including one last week during a car chase at Fisher Avenue near Baseline Road. The Ottawa police guns and gangs unit has investigated four more shootings than it has compared to all of last year. But this isn’t a citywide epidemic – the gang-related shootings are occurring in

specific neighbourhoods, such as South Keys, and some of the other older suburbs in south Ottawa. Despite the spike in the number of shootings in Ottawa, we don’t see the need for a knee-jerk reaction, as seems to be suggested by Mayor Ford. The solution seems simple: reallocate more resources to the city’s trouble spots. This could mean beefing up proactive policing efforts in Ottawa neighbourhoods hit

with gang-related violence or assigning more officers to the guns and gangs unit patrolling those areas. Ottawa’s crime statistics don’t call for a drastic change. This is a geographicallyspecific problem requiring a localized solution. The spike in shootings does not demand a kneejerk reaction that is more political than anything else. A similar spike in the police budget is unlikely. Keep in mind the provin-

cial government is desperately trying to trim its budget to help reduce Ontario’s deficit. Similarly, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson has set a 2.5 per cent cap on the municipality’s annual budget – including the police force. Next year’s draft police budget calls for a 5.6 per cent increase, which will have to be trimmed by $6 million to meet the budget cap. There isn’t much room either in the province or the municipality to go on a hiring spree. It’s up to our police chief to figure out how to best allocate the limited resources he has.

It isn’t a race – or is it? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

B

y now, having lived a bit, you know that the world is divided into two kinds of people. There are those who stay in the lane they are in and those who keep jumping to what they hope is a faster one. This summer, you are likely to find out which you are, and how to deal with the other kind. The Queensway, of course, is a classic testing ground. Driving west or east from downtown at rush hour, you are continually faced with choices. Is the left-hand lane really a passing lane, or will it just be clogged with people who hope it is? The right-hand will end eventually. Will you stay on it until the bitter end and then barge into traffic, or will you move over earlier? The lane beside you seems to be moving a bit better. Will you jump over into it, or just stay where you are and hope for the best? It depends on what type you are, and in some ways, you probably don’t have as much choice as you thought you had. Your genes might predetermine what you do. Or the way you were taught to drive by your mother or father. Those of us who make one choice and stick to it require a mature outlook, because it means we have to accept the fact that other people, the lane-changers, might get there before us and we have to keep the difficult belief that it doesn’t matter if they do. In other words, it isn’t a competition. Raised in a society where competition dominates our economic life and professional sports permeate our society, it is a tough deci-

sion to decide that you are not playing. But it is a relief in a way. Take the border, for example. There you are, sitting in four or five or seven lanes of traffic for half an hour or maybe even more. The guy in front just moved one lane left, making an obstacle of himself while doing so. You stay where you are, partly because you don’t want to be that guy and partly because you may not have the nerve to do what he did. And you remind yourself it isn’t a competition. Because what does it matter if he’s sailing freely along the 401 two minutes before you are? But still, you watch him, in his huge ugly black SUV. Sometimes your line moves and you seem to be catching up with him. But then his line moves and moves again and you are losing sight of him, even though it isn’t a competition. Coming the other way, there are those people sneaking along on the side where it didn’t look like there even was a line. Are they jumping the queue or just part of the NEXUS line? It takes coolness, a strong-will and just a bit of inertia to stay where you are. Eventually, as you need to remind yourself, you get through and all is forgotten, even your nagging little wish that he’ll have his car searched by the customs people or maybe get a flat tire down the road. (As an aside, if you’re coming back this way, you discover that the drivers are faster and crazier up here than down there, a reversal of the national stereotypes.) Somehow one of our basic needs is to feel that we are smarter than the other guy. That either means that we applaud ourselves for getting ahead in the line or we pity the guy who gets ahead in the line because he must have a miserable life if he has to get his fun getting ahead of us. In the end, we both get there. But when we do, one of us keeps pushing the elevator button when it doesn’t arrive right away and the other just waits. The elevator gets there too.

Finding the elusive balance

A

springtime essay in The Atlantic reinvigorated the work-life balance debate that perpetually lays dormant in my mind. In Why women still can’t have it all, Anne-Marie Slaughter, a tenured Princeton professor and former policy advisor to U.S. secretary of state, contemplated the many reasons highlyeducated women are fleeing powerful careers for the sake of their families. Friends posting and reposting this article applauded Slaughter for her support of stay-at-home mothers. But frankly, that wasn’t her point at all. In fact, if one were

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse to ask her, Slaughter would probably suggest women don’t do themselves any favours by opting out of their professional lives entirely. Slaughter doesn’t advocate that women throw all their energies into either careers or families. Rather, she suggests that women have “contributed to the fetish of the one-dimensional life,”

where people are expected to work longer hours, be continuously connected to their employers and work 70-hourplus weeks. On the other end of the spectrum are those who have decided no balance between work and family can be found, so they’ve given up their careers altogether. But the true way forward, argues Slaughter, is to advocate for workplaces that allow people to find fulfilment in multiple dimensions of their lives simultaneously. Her suggestions on how to achieve more balance – if one can use the “b” word -- are wide-ranging. Some involve widespread policy changes, such as having school hours match work hours. But at the crux of Slaughter’s argument is that before women – and men, for that matter – can “have it all,” a paradigm shift in workplace culture needs to occur. For one thing, men and women need to work together to rid workplaces of “macho” cultures that increasingly seem

Make sure you have enough water, as well as easy-to-store food that does not need refrigeration or cooking. Keep flashlights and batteries ready. A battery-powered or wind-up radio would be helpful. In the event of an extended outage, turn off or unplug appliances including air conditioners and electronics to help avoid a power surge when the electricity is restored. Keep your refrigerator and freezer doors shut as much as possible – food will keep for 12 hours in the refrigerator and 24 to 48 hours in a freezer.

To ensure your safety, ensure no one goes near downed power lines. Never use barbecues, camp stoves or generators indoors. If you use a fireplace for heat, ensure that your chimney is free of creosote buildup or debris. Use flashlights rather than candles; if you must use candles, place them in a non-combustible container away from drapes and carpets. In an extended winter outage, shut off power to the electric water heater, shut off water at the main valve (usually found in the basement near the water meter), open taps to drain the pipes and leave taps open, flush toilets to empty them, and drain the dishwasher and washing machine.

to value face time over work productivity. Slaughter notes that the rise of technology, which promised to allow more employees opportunities to telecommute, thereby giving them more flexibility, has backfired. Instead, employees are expected to be on-call 24/7. And despite the fact the technology exists, there continues to be much emphasis on bum-in-seat time, with promotions and other opportunities based on hours and/or years of service. The reality for most women, says Slaughter, is that it’s not always possible, nor desirable, to continue the traditional upward climb to powerful positions during the childrearing years. “Women should think about the climb to leadership not in terms of a straight upward slope, but as irregular stair steps, with periodic plateaus (and even dips), when they turn down promotions to remain in a job that works for their family situation; when they leave high-powered jobs and spend a year or two at home on a reduced schedule; or when they step off a conventional professional track to take a consulting position or project-based work for a number of years.” Employers, too, need to value the entrepreneurial experience that can come from these periodic career irregularities. Rather than penalize women for stepping off the traditional career track, employers should look for ways to promote these women when the time is right and work on finding ways to retain women in whom they have invested a lot of time and resources. Failure to change the typical workplace culture, which views employees with families as a burden, will unfortunately mean that our professional workforce will lose talented men and women who are forced to make a choice between their careers and family lives. Who wants that kind of one-dimensional leadership anyway?

Small cycling projects make big impact: report EMC news - Ottawa is posting big successes for cyclists, according to an advocacy group’s new report. For the first time ever, Ottawa group Citizens for Safe Cycling published a “state of cycling in the city report,” and president Hans Moor said the analysis shows things are looking up. “We’re making big progress,” Moor said. “There is definitely a lot of attention at city hall, both (from) staff and from council, to see cycling as a serious alternative for taking the car. It’s becoming more of an ‘and-and’ than an ‘either-or.’” Ottawa has many kilometers of bicycle lanes and paths, but they are not necessarily connected to each other, Moor said. He supports Mayor Jim Watson’s assertion that the city can get “more bang for its buck” by undertaking small projects to better connect existing cycling facilities. “You don’t have to roll out expensive new bike lanes through forests,” Moor said. “You just connect two pieces and all of a sudden people start to say, ‘Hey, I can actually do all this without sharing the lane with traffic.’” Last year, the small improvement that had the biggest impact was new markings to allow cyclists to use an underpass under Nicholas Street at the University of Ottawa, near Campus Station, that connects Sandy Hill to the Corkstown footbridge and west to Centretown, Moor said. The “hugely successful” initiative will be followed up this year by another simple improvement to Rideau Canal access: the installation of a bike ramp attached to the stairs at Hartwell Locks to allow cyclists to get up and down from the path – an access that is used by thousands of people during the National Capital Commission’s Sunday Bike Days in the summer. “Small things like that are so easy and such big wins for the city,” Moor said. “I think with the wonderful connections we have with the city now we can actually convince them and say, ‘Take these three or four (improvements), put them in place and all of a sudden you make thousands of people happy for next to nothing.’” COMPREHENSIVE REPORT

The report is a comprehensive look at the length pathways and bike lanes in the city, funding for cycling infrastructure and initiatives, cultural and community activities related to cycling, modal split trends and the “top 10” lists of issues that should be addressed and problems that the group has brought up in the past and that have now been addressed. The state of cycling report represents the evolution of that analysis, Moor said. It’s the most comprehensive snapshot of cycling in Ottawa, he said, because it combines information from different

sources and jurisdictions such as the National Capital Commission, which manages most of the off-road pathways, and the city. “We’re always scrambling for this information ourselves,” Moor said. “We’re always asking, ‘Where is this? What are the numbers and is it true they are growing?’ … There are several jurisdictions here and no one publication that gathers this information.” The report looks at modal splits – the ratio of people driving versus cycling. In most areas, the cycling share is increasing, but Citizens for Safe Cycling found that far fewer people are cycling in certain areas such as Beacon Hill, Merivale, south Nepean and Alta Vista. That information will enable the advocacy group to look into what’s causing those decreases and how cycling facilities could be improved in those neighbourhoods. As the amount of cycling facilities increase and encourage cyclists to get on the roads and paths, drivers are becoming more aware of cyclists around them, and that’s a huge win, Moor said. “I feel that the perceived difference between cycling and cars is getting less and less,” Moor said. “I think there is more acceptance of each other’s place on the road.”

EMC new - Health care service providers in the Ottawa area are calling on the community to submit nominations for this year’s Heroes in the Homes Caregiver Recognition Award. The award, a creation of the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, showcases health care providers whose efforts have allowed those facing challenges of old age, illness or disability the chance to live a fuller life at home. Caregivers range from family members, friends and community volunteers to personal support workers, case managers, nurses, therapists or other health care professionals, all of whom are eligible for nomination. Each nominee will receive a certificate of recognition and be honoured at one of three award ceremonies in the region. This is the Champlain centre’s third year hosting the Heroes in the Home awards. In 2011, the Heroes in the Home banquet paid tribute to 134 home health care workers, thanking them for their tireless efforts to care for individuals in need of support. The Champlain Community Care Access Centre is one of the largest health care service providers in the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. The Canadian Caregiver Coalition estimates that about four million unpaid caregivers provide more than 80 per cent of care needed for those with living with chronic conditions, contributing to more than $5 billion worth of unpaid labour annually to the health care system. The aging population is expected to only increase demand for such caregivers. The deadline for nomination submissions is Sept. 14. Entry forms can be found on the Champlain centre’s website at ccac-ont.ca and is located on the events page. The Ottawa ceremony will take place on Nov. 27, in Cornwall on Nov. 28 and in Pembroke on Nov. 29.

EMC news - Although he will be on duty in Ottawa over the next few weeks, the British high commissioner said he will be keeping an eye on London when the 2012 Olympic Games get underway on July 27. British High Commissioner Andrew Pocock will be watching the Games on the television at his home in Ottawa this week, cheering on the British Olympians. “I think as a compromise, Canada can win silver in everything,” Pocock said. “But seriously, we wish for similar success as Canada had in the winter games. I think the host country doing well always adds to the success of the games.” The British High Commission in Ottawa and consulates across Canada will raise the Olympic flag at noon on July 27 to mark the start of the Games. “It will be a symbolic gesture, showing the games are ready to go,” Pocock said. The commission will also host an Olympics viewing party for staff, friends and family during the opening ceremonies on July 27 at Earnscliffe, the high commissioner’s official residence in Ottawa. Looking forward to the opening ceremonies, Pocock said he is in the dark as much as anyone else when it comes to what can be expected for the big event. “If I knew anything, I think I would have to be shot,” Pocock said. “You know it is always a big secret, when it comes to what to expect with the opening ceremony. I will certainly be looking forward to it.” This will be the second Olympic-themed event the commission has hosted. On June 27, Pocock and his wife Julie welcomed more than 400 guests to their home to mark the final one-month countdown of the games. Pocock visited London in May and found the city was bustling to get ready for the arrival of Olympians and fans

“Competitive swimming has always interested me, and I hope the U.K. will do well,” Pocock said. “Of course cycling, gymnastics, all the sports are remarkable to watch. All the athletes are incredibly dedicated.” In the lead-up to the games, Pocock met with a number of Canadian Olympians and Paralympians. “The work they do is just not on the field or court, it is everything, coaches, trainers, it is an amazing thing, it requires enormous dedication and I wish Canada luck, both in the Olympic Games and Paralympics.” Pocock said the commission will raise the Olympic flag again at the start of the Paralympics games on Aug. 29.

alike. “The infrastructure is extraordinary, the Olympic Park itself, it is the largest construction project in Europe,” Pocock said. Weather, Pocock added, could play a significant role during the Games, as the first two weeks in July received more rain than typically falls in the entire month, making it the wettest July in London on record. “London’s summer is very wet this year,” Pocock said. “Many of the events are weather free, but there are a lot that rely on drier conditions. I will be hoping for the sun.” The high commissioner said he will be paying particular attention to the swimming events which he finds are the most entertaining to watch.

Ginger carrot soup is cool on a warm day

I

answe the call

first put this soup recipe in my column a few years ago, and it was so popular that I’m repeating it. The idea of having cold soup rather than hot may seem strange, but it can be wonderfully refreshing on a hot summer day. Chilled soup is no stranger to people living in hot climates. Spanish gazpacho is a tomato-based soup that’s almost like a salad in a bowl. French Vichysoisse, made with potatoes and leeks, is traditionally served cold. And one of my own favourites is a tomato soup flavoured with basil and mint. When you’re serving a light supper that’s mainly salads and cold cuts, a bowl of chilled soup makes a perfect first course. It whets the appetite, but doesn’t fill you up. This carrot soup is delicious when chilled. It can be served in mugs for a casual outdoor picnic or in your best china soup bowls as a first course for a summer lunch or dinner party. Fresh ginger gives this

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff carrot soup a totally different flavour. Depending on how much you use, the intensity of the flavour will be either just noticeable or very distinctive. If you’re not sure which you prefer, go for the smaller amount first. The recipe calls for milk, but you can use cream if you want a richer flavour. If you’re a traditionalist, this soup can be served hot rather than cold. GINGER CARROT SOUP

2 tbsp. butter 1 onion, finely chopped 1/2 clove garlic, minced 1 to 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root 1/2 tsp. curry powder 3 cups sliced carrots 1/4 cup uncooked rice 4 1/2 cups water 2 chicken bouillon cubes

2 cups milk salt, pepper to taste In a large saucepan, melt the butter and cook the onion and garlic until softened. Add the grated ginger and curry powder and cook two or three minutes more without letting the mixture brown. Add the carrots, rice, water, bouillon cubes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat then cover. Simmer until the carrots and rice are cooked, about 45 minutes. Puree in a blender, in two batches if necessary. Add the milk. If you’re serving this hot, return the soup to the saucepan and reheat, without boiling. If serving cold, chill in the refrigerator. Makes six servings.

New bathing suits don’t leave girls bored Hearing aids are designed for ears, not dresser drawers!

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories stretched all the way down to my knees. I couldn’t wait to get rid of it and Audrey and I waddled our way back home to show Mother what had happened and have her try to explain why two lovely bathing suits had turned into suits of armour when they got wet. “They’re pure wool - that’s why,” Mother said, as she turned the suits inside out to examine them more closely.Well, as they dried over the back fence, they stayed stiff as boards and as they dried they got smaller and smaller, which suited Audrey and me just fine. Neither of us had any intention of ever wearing them again. It was back to the homemade broadcloth bloomers and blousettes for us. Of course, we had to write Aunt Lizzie thank you letters and we were never allowed to lie. I told her thanks, saying I had never had a store-bought bathing suit before, and the colour was very nice. I didn’t tell her that both suits had been put in the trunk upstairs or that one day they could probably be seen in one of the braided rugs Mother made every fall out of old scraps of wool material rescued from the hand-me-down box.

piled on the wagon, hanging on for dear life, with Mother, Father and Aunt Lizzie sitting on the one seat at the front. We all waved as the train pulled out of the station and even Father said he was glad to see the last of his sister. “Once a year is once too often,” he said. Well, Aunt Lizzie was only gone a week when a parcel, wrapped in brown paper, arrived in the mail. Lo and behold, when Mother opened it, there were two brand new bathing suits, one for me and one for my sister Audrey. They were identical, in style and colour, but of course in two different sizes. They were white and navy stripes and even though it was late in the day, Mother said we could try them on and take a fast run down to the Bonnechere and have a dip. Well, you never saw two girls strip down so fast in your life. Audrey and I never even stopped to dip our toes in the water to test it first. We dove in and bobbed up and down, splashed each other and got the suits thoroughly soaked. Mother had told us we could only stay in the water a few minutes, just long enough to try out the new swim suits. There was supper to think of as we climbed out of the water. The suits were as stiff as boards. Audrey’s, didn’t look too bad because she had a figure underneath. But mine completely left my body and kept the water locked in it like a sealed drum. The weight of the water caused the suit to leave my upper body, and it

can’t believe you let those girls go swimming in their underwear,” Aunt Lizzie said at the supper table. “It really isn’t underwear,” my sister Audrey said. And she explained how Mother had made bloomer-like bottoms and sleeveless tops, because we couldn’t afford real swimming suits from Walker’s Store in Renfrew. She told Aunt Lizzie just about all the girls on the Northcote Side Road were similarly dressed when they swam in the Bonnechere. Well, not my little friend Joyce. But she lived in a brick house and had a real flush toilet in their bathroom. No backyard outhouse and Eaton’s catalogue on a spike at their farm! And she had a real bathing suit and a bright red rubber bathing cap and matching rubber shoes. But she was still my friend and it made no difference to Joyce that I was dressed in hand-me-downs or homemade blouses and dresses out of flour bag and wore an outfit Mother had made out of broadcloth at nine centsa-yard at Walker’s Store to swim in. But it seemed to be a major issue to Aunt Lizzie and she wasn’t going to let it die. She continued to harp on it right up until it was time to go to bed, adding in usual her subtle way, that Mother wasn’t really good farm-wife material, coming from New York and all. I knew Mother couldn’t wait to see the last of Aunt Lizzie. It was a hot and blistering day when we got up the next morning and loaded Aunt Lizzie and her genuine cow-hide leather suitcases onto the wagon for the trip into Renfrew to the station. We had to take the wagon, because we all couldn’t fit into the Model T. We five kids never wanted to miss a trip into Renfrew when there was no school and so we

Boot-stomping good time with Ottawa’s rockabilly band Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - Get ready to put dancing shoes on as Ottawa-based Dang Guilty celebrates their first studio album in the Glebe with an all-out rocking release party. A three piece ensemble, the band is comprised of two high school classmates Joel Hayward on vocals and guitarist and bassist James

Rooke, along with Andy Clapson on drums. Dang Guilty plays a little bit of rhythm and blues, surf rock and old fashioned rock and roll - all with a country heart. Likened to music from a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack, the band loves putting on a great show for old and new fans alike. “The biggest thing is we always aim to throw a party,”

Hayward said. “So it will be a fun atmosphere with lots of dancing.” The CD release party will take place at Irene’s Pub at 885 Bank St. in the Glebe on July 28. The band is looking forward to performing at the pub for the first time. “It is our first time playing here,” Hayward said. “But as a band, it will be an honour, as it is one of the

main staples to play at in Ottawa.” The band spent 30 hours in the studio recording the five-song EP, Tail Draggin’. “Initially I bring in my songs, with the melody and the lyrics, but then James (Rooke) is really good at the arrangement and Andy (Clapson) is an awesome drummer who comes up with these great hooks,” Hayward said. “At the end of the day, really, we are all composers.” Most of the tracks were laid down in one take. Hayward said they love their sound when they are performing and wanted to emulate that as much as possible in the studio.

“Sometime overworking a song can be too much,” Hayward said. “And we are happy with our end product.” Everything about the release has been handled with care by the band, including 150 hand-made limited edition copies. “We burnt the CDs ourselves and now are still in the process (of) working on the cover art,” Hayward said. Describing the album covers, Hayward said they will all be hand printed. With only 150 copies available for sale at the release party, Hayward said he hopes fans will enjoy and appreciate the effort. After the release party,

the EP will only be available for download at the band’s website at dangguilty.bandcamp.com. “If you want something special, you should come out to the party,” Hayward said. The evening includes an opening set from The Pelts and Charles de Lint, an award-winning fantasy author and folk musician who is a long-time friend of the band. “I got heavily involved in the folk scene when I moved here,” Hayward said. “Ottawa has a really good folk scene.” The party gets underway at 9 p.m., and there is a $7 cover charge.

Pet Adoptions PET OF THE WEEK SCOOBY ID#A144927 Scooby is a neutered male three-year-old Pekingese mix who was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on June 19. Scooby loves to look and feel his best – he will need to visit a professional every so often to have his hair done. He may be small in stature but his independent nature shines through – he likes to do things on his own terms and enjoys speaking his mind. With more training and socializing he may become desensitized to other dogs but for now he’s happy not to have to spend much time with them.

ALI ID#A141388 Ali is a neutered male, black Domestic Shorthair cat who is about five years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on March 20 but is now available for adoption. Ali would love to curl up in ball on your lap. He’s quite shy until he gets to know you. He gets along best with gentle, calm people who like to sit down with a cat for a cuddle in a calm, quiet home.

SUMMER SAFETY FOR PETS

Dogs do not have the ability to sweat, therefore if they are left for even a short period of time in a car (windows open or not), their lives could be in danger. With their body temperature normally at 39 degrees Celsius, a dog can only endure temperatures barely over 40 degrees Celsius for a very short time before they suffer from heat-stress, irreparable brain damage or death. Please call the OHS emergency line at 613-725-1532 if you see a dog in a car on a hot day. Here are a few other tips to keep your companion animals safe this summer:

•If your pet spends lots of time outdoors, make sure there is adequate shelter for protection from the sun/ heat. Outside kennels need to be well ventilated and situated in shaded areas. Clean, fresh water must be accessible at all times. •On hotter days, monitor your pets’ activity and be careful not to over exert them. Watch for signs of heat stress, excessive panting, disorientation, staring or anxious expression and weakness. Bring your pet to a cool area, gradually lower your pet’s temperature by immersing his or her paws in cold water or hosing him or her down and call your veterinarian immediately. •When the heat and humidity rise, be especially careful with short-nosed dogs (pugs, bull-dogs, etc.) and older animals. Exercise your pets in the early morning or late evening to avoid the midday heat.

•Shaving a hairy pet for the summer may seem like a good idea, but they can actually get sunburned. Shave your pet at the beginning of the summer before it gets too hot. •In summer, mosquitoes are out in full force. Heartworm prevention medication is recommended and available. See your veterinarian for details. •Flea and tick prevention is important. See your veterinarian for more information. •When you take your dog out for exercise, bring a portable water container for the both of you.

Lily Hello! My name is Lily. I’m a 10 year old English Bull Terrier. I love to spin when I’m happy (look it up, it’s an English Bull Terrier trait). I really enjoy relaxing on the deck by the pool in the summer, but winter is my is my favourite time of year because I’m a huge Sens fan (even though I’m originally from Toronto)! Do you think your pet is cute enough to be “THE PET OF THE WEEK”? Submit a picture and short biography of your pet to find out! Simply email to: cfoster@thenewsemc.ca attention “Pet of the Week”

•Water should be refreshed or exchanged often, and the bowl should be kept in a cool shaded area.

Every year during the summer months, the OHS Rescue and Investigation Services department receives hundreds of complaints relating to animals and hot weather. Dogs left unattended in parked cars top the list, followed closely by dogs left outside in the sun without water or shelter from the sun.

Sales Representative

eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC sports – After helping her team clinch a ninthconsecutive Central Division title, Ottawa Fury forward Mallory Outerbridge now has her sights set on winning the W-League championship. The Ottawa Fury will host this weekend the 2012 WLeague Championship final four at the Algonquin College Soccer Complex from July 27 to 29. Outerbridge is looking forward to doing what she likes best – scoring goals for her team. She was the 2011 WLeague most valuable player and the league’s top scorer, becoming the highest singleseason scorer in Fury history with 17 goals, which helped the Fury finish the regular season with a league-high 37 points last year. “It’s been great. It’s been a lot of fun and everyone is looking forward to the championship and playing in front of our home crowds.” Playing in front of a home crowd will make for an exciting tournament, said Outerbridge. “We are all pumped. I can’t wait. Come out and be loud and show your support,” she said to Ottawa soccer fans. The tourney will feature four teams - the champion of three of the league’s divisions and the Ottawa Fury. In the first semifinal Western Conference champions Pali Blues will take on Quebec City Amiral on July 27 at 4.30 p.m., with Ottawa facing

Eastern Conference champions DC United in the second semifinal on the same day at 7:30 p.m. The Fury Women’s captured the division title in the scorching July 7 afternoon heat with a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Lady Lynx on the shoulders of a second-half goal from Outerbridge. The next game however saw the Fury women have their 30game home unbeaten streak end in what essentially was a meaningless season finale against Quebec City Amiral, sending Ottawa to its first loss at home in four years. “When you know that you have already made the playoffs it is difficult thing to try and motivate players everyday,” said head coach Dom Oliveri. “For us it wasn’t that of a big deal. It was a meaningless game and we had specific target for players who played certain amounts of time.” EXCITING TIME FOR OTTAWA SOCCER

Oliveri is counting on the support of Ottawans and soccer fans in Canada for a competitive final four. “It is an exciting time for Ottawa soccer,” he said. “We are going to have some of the best women players in the world here. These players are role models to many female players in Ottawa. They have been to the World Cup and Olympics. Hopefully people will come out and see some quality soccer and enjoy.” Oliveri has been working

hard to prepare his players both mentally and physically for the championship. He said the team is playing well and is injury free. “We have been preparing our players all season long for this day,” he said, adding that anytime you can play at home in front of your home fans, get to sleep in your own bed, have your own meal – it is a good thing. His sentiments were echoed by team captain Jasmine Phillips. “It is always nice to be in the championship and playing before our fans,” said Phillips. Barrhaven’s Gillian Baggot, who won a regular spot on the team this season, said she is looking forward to playing in the championship. “I think we have the opportunity to win this championship,” she said. “We have been playing really well and improving as a team ever since we came together.” Ottawa previously hosted the W-League Championship in 2004, with the Vancouver Whitecaps taking the crown. “It is not very often that this would ever come back to Ottawa, so people should come out and support,” Baggot added. The Ottawa Fury will be selling championship passes that provide the ticket holder entrance into all four games between July 27 and 29 that include the two semifinals on Friday evening and the third place match and championship final on the Sunday afternoon.

Elsie Reford and her noble white steed, Roxy, take a trot around the ring before participating in the 2012 Dressage at the Park Silver and Gold Shows at the Nepean National Equestrian Park on July 21. The competition requires rider and horse to follow an intricate and accurate route around a marked area. The event raises money for the therapeutic riding program at the park. This will be the last dressage event at the park, as the city has terminated their lease with the National Capital Commission, closing the park this fall.
