News - For John Fraser, the real work has just begun. The future Ottawa South MPP claimed victory on Aug. 1 in the riding’s byelection, keeping the fiery Liberal red theme alive in the community. Fraser won the election with 14,925 votes, which is 42.3 per cent of the vote, followed by Progressive Conservative candidate Matt Young who took 13,631 votes (38.7 per cent). Calling it a humbling experience as he sits in his constituency office on Kilborn Avenue, Fraser said he owed a lot of gratitude to his campaign team, family, and supporters. “You still have that adrenaline,” he said. “You don’t lose it just because you win.” Fraser will officially become the newly-minted MPP at Queen’s Park at the end of August. Now in a transition period, Fraser is in the midst of hiring staff and setting up his constituency office. The campaign in itself was a formidable task, said Fraser, who spent considerable time dodging backlash and criticism from angry residents over the Liberals track record in government. But Fraser said he took it all in stride. “My disposition is that I’m always trying to work with people,” he said. “You never know who you’ll work with … I’m not interested in conflict.” See CAMPAIGN, page 2

Mayor Jim Watson, right, may usually cut ribbons at community events, but once in a while he’s asked to mark an occasion a little differently. Here, the Mayor ceremoniously and successfully breaks a board with his hand after ringing in the 30th anniversary celebration of the Orléans Child Care Centre on Aug. 10.

On the road with the mayor Jim Watson motors across the city Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

Community – “You’re too early!” On a bright and sunny Saturday morning, this is music to the ears to Mayor Jim Watson, who wanders into a farmers market in Ottawa’s rural outskirts. “I know, I know,” he says, laughing. It’s just after 8 a.m. on Aug. 10, and while it is still pretty quiet at the North Gower Farmers Market, Watson, clutching a reusable navy bag, heads into the market, on a hunt for dessert.

And so begins a typical start to the mayor’s weekend schedule. While this particular Saturday was not the busiest in the mayor’s books, it is just a taste of what he does on a semi-regular basis, minus the usual city business which takes place during the week. Every year, the mayor’s office receives nearly 5,000 invitations to city-wide events from community organizations and individuals. While it’s next to impossible to attend each and every event, the mayor usually accepts almost half of them or asks his deputy mayors to represent him at the events he can’t attend. On this summer day, Watson is scheduled to attend 10 events, a considerably light day for His Worship. The most events he’s attended on one

day is 18. “The lines start to blur a little bit,” he says of all the events he attends. BREAKFAST

Riding shotgun, the mayor sips on a hot tea and unwraps a toasted bagel with cream cheese, and part-way through the morning, flicks the radio on to 105.3 KISS-FM, turning up the volume slightly to better hear one of his favourite pop songs of the moment. He flips open his schedule to reveal red highlighted blocks. The red ones on his schedule indicate a “must attend” event, where he is either giving greetings or making a presentation, or both.

These include 290 charges for not obeying the move over law, 6,052 charges for speeding, 83 street racing charges and 375 seat belt charges.

At the end of the day, what ultimately matters to Fraser is what families talk about across the kitchen table – those are the important issues, he said. Whether it is hydro rates, bus service, or finding affordable long-term housing options for seniors, Fraser believes it is those types of day-to-day issues which residents are most concerned about. “We ran the campaign that we wanted to run,” said Fraser. No doors were ignored. In fact, he said, there were times when they hit a residence three times. His team left no stone unturned, he said, campaigning right up the very last few minutes of election day. “It was very special,” he said. “We were all working towards a common purpose.” As the campaign went on, the team collected more and more volunteers, and was also joined by Premier Kathleen Wynne on more than one occasion. Although Fraser served as executive assistant to former premier and Ottawa South MPP Dalton McGuinty for 14 years, asking for support for his campaign was a different thing altogether. Previously, Fraser managed small- and medium-sized local businesses before entering public service. It was a series of firsts for Fraser, politically-speaking.

Voting for himself during the advance polling was a surreal moment altogether, he said, adding that seeing his name on a ballot was a strange experience. Campaigning allowed Fraser to see what was going on in the community he’s lived in most of his life in a different way. With the torch being passed down to him, Fraser said his office will continue serving constituents and showing

support to all organizations, as well as working alongside the other parties despite different opinions. “We need to find a way to get things for people,” he said. “Community building, I think, is a really important part of the job.” Election night was a celebration of achievements and hard work Fraser’s team undertook during the course of the campaign, he said. “Election night was really great to be with everyone,” he said. “It’s a humbling feeling to get support from friends and neighbours. It’s a real privilege to be able to share this with people who you really care about.”

Team going distance to find cure for childhood cancers Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – Losing a child to cancer is a tragedy no parent should ever have to experience says avid runner Kelly Ripley. The Riverside South woman has joined The Canadian Mudd Team, a team of eight women, to participate in the Sears Great Canadian Run, a 100-kilometre relay that raises money for childhood cancer research, which will be held on Oct. 5. The run starts in Ottawa and finishes in Montebello, Que. Ripley’s team met through an online network called the Canadian Mudd Queens, which comprises more than 250 members across Canada. Together they share tips, arrange for carpools, train and race together. But the one form of fitness they all share in common is obstacle course racing. “We are really excited to stick to the pavement for a change as most of our races are up and down mountains and through pretty treacherous terrain,” said Ripley. “But most of all it will be a funfilled day spent with friends where we get to challenge ourselves and each other physically and mentally for a good cause.” It will be the team’s last race together this year, which makes the feeling much more special. “We have grown very close throughout this race season,” she said. NEW LIFESTYLE

Physical fitness is a new lifestyle regime for Ripley, who made the decision to follow a healthier lifestyle path last June. She started to follow a running program, and completed her first run last June. She later became hooked on Spartan races, an extreme competition that includes obstacles and varies in length from one kilometre to mara-

thon distances. She has since run more than 20 obstacle races and completed her fourth half-marathon just two weeks ago, and also reached a 1,000 kilometres milestone recently. “I’ve never been overweight, but I had also never been healthy either,” Ripley said. “This new passion has completely transformed my life. The health benefits are endless, but above all else, there is something incredible about achieving something you never thought you could. I now know how strong I truly am. I am not sure many people can say that.” With their obstacle race season having just ended, Ripley found herself looking for her next challenge. She came across the Great Canadian Run earlier this year, drawn to the idea of a relay for a great cause. “In this day and age, we have all been touched by cancer in one way or another,” she said. “My fiance’s best friend lost a child to cancer a few years ago. It’s something no parent should experience. Of course their family and all families touched by cancer will be in my thoughts during the run.” The best part about this type of event is that teams can take on as much as they see fit, she said. “Some teams have as many as 20 members so each person is only required to do five kilometres or so,” Ripley said. “We deliberately kept our team small as we each want to really push ourselves. Most of us will complete at least a half marathon on race day.” All the members run fairly regularly (three to four times a week), in addition to obstacle racing which they say is great training. Their last race was 25 kilometres up and down Mont Ste. Marie, the total elevation of which is more than 1,471 metres. “We figure if we can run up and down mountains this should be a breeze,” she said. As the team only joined recently, they do not have a specific fundrais-

ing target, but Ripley has set her personal amount at $1,000. The team hopes to raise $2,500 as a whole. “Personally I hope that we can contribute to the objectives of the race: to raise funds to aid the fight to end kids cancers and to raise aware-

ness for this great cause,” she said. “But also I hope to push myself like never before. I figure my fight will last only 12 hours or so. The families and children affected by cancer fight a lot harder and longer than that.” Half of the donation made by the

Sears Foundation will be distributed to local pediatric oncology hospitals and organizations in the cities where the run takes place with the remainder going to national pediatric cancer research initiatives such as CHEO. For more information, please visit www.thesearsgreatcanadianrun.ca.

South Ottawa Race Day gears up to fight brain cancer Second annual event to take place Sept. 29 at Rideau-Carleton Raceway Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News - When Karen Hill’s good friend was diagnosed with brain cancer, she knew she had to do something to honour her memory. Her friend, Heather Geddie, passed away from Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) shortly after the birth of her third child last July. She had battled the cancer for two years, but her spirit remained positive throughout, said Hill. To keep her memory alive, Geddie’s friends, organized the inaugural South Ottawa Race Day last year, running in honour of their friend and raising $100,000 for brain cancer research. This year, the event takes place on Sept. 29 and is destined to become even bigger and better, she said. Starting and finishing in the oval at Rideau Carleton Raceway, and winding its way through the Ottawa South countryside, the race allows runners the opportunity to see the natural beauty the south has to offer, while raising money for a great cause, Hill said. “For a variety of different reasons, we all wanted to do something for the community, and something for her,� she said. Running events like this one gets people outdoors and is a good way to build community. “It’s becoming such a great trend,� Hill said of running. “It’s nice to see how many people will come out to support a great cause.� REMEMBERING FILE

The team will also be running in memory of a young girl who passed away from a brain tumour earlier this year. The youngster, Chase NolanDowns, was a friend of Hill’s daughter, and whose family was heavily invested in last year’s race, jumping on board as a title sponsor of the event. They’ll be back again this year, she said. Saddened, the community was stunned at how close to home the

South Ottawa Race Day will take place on Sept. 29 at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway in honour of those in the community who have passed away from brain cancer. Proceeds from the event go towards finding a cure for the disease. news was, and before long, the neighbourhood rallied around the family. “It just goes to show you how many people it can affect,� said Hill. “Brain cancer chose us; we didn’t choose it.� The first year introduced the team to many individuals and families who were also facing brain cancer,

said Hill, and in lead-up to the event, fundraising events were held. Last year, proceeds from the race went to Dr. Ian Lorimer, who is an internationally recognized researcher in glioblastoma. Other proceeds went to the clinical trials office at the Ottawa Hospital. In its inaugural year, the race day exceeded all expectations.

Last year’s event saw 1,000 participants lace up their runners. This year, said Hill, they wish to attract 3,000. “It’s really powerful for us to race in honour of those touched by brain cancer,� said Hill. “We will be thinking of them as we run.� Volunteers are still required to

help put on the event. Hill and the team of organizers have high hopes for the race. “I hope we blow it out of the water,� she said. The race day will include a halfmarathon, half-marathon relay, 10K, 5K, and 2K. For more information, visit www. southottawaraceday.ca.

Mayor fits 11 events into 1 day The ones that aren’t highlighted are ones he will drop in at, even just for a few minutes, if time allows. Throughout the day, the mayor keeps an eye on the time, and suggests quicker routes to special assistant and driver Will Bulmer. He pulls some trivia out every once in a while about the city he’s lived in for most of his life. “That was the first Tim Horton’s in Ottawa,” he said pointing out a coffee shop on Montreal Road. With a number of different job portfolios already under his belt, the mayor knows the city like the back of his hand. The former MPP and minister of municipal affairs and housing is well into his second stint as mayor. The first time, Watson was elected in 1997, before the city was amalgamated. The number and style of events he attended in those two roles were vastly different from what he attends now, he said, mainly because the city was a regional municipality. Now, the mayor goes the distance to try to attend as many community events as possible. THE DAY

The North Gower and Metcalfe farmers’ markets were the first two stops on Watson’s schedule. After realizing his earliness, Watson instructs his driver to take a little spin around the neighbourhood and into the country. During the cruise, the mayor remarks on rural life in the city, saying how important it is to support local farmers and growers. He picks up a few baked goods from the farmers market in North Gower, shaking hands with a few of the vendors and marveling at the array of pies, jams, and fresh fruits and vegetables on display. In Metcalfe, he picks up some sweet corn, before buying a few chocolate cookies from a young vendor. He learns it’s Junior Vendors Day at the market, a special event showing off some of the creations youngsters have displayed. Inside the hall, he bumps into fellow colleague Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson, engaging him in some gentle ribbing. Before too long, it’s time to hit the road for Ottawa’s east end, where a playground unveiling is set to happen with Ottawa Community Housing. On comes the music. Once arriving at Carson Road, Watson connects with Jo-Anne Poirier, CEO of Ottawa Community Housing, and Tony Greco of Greco Lean and Fit, who partnered with the organization and a myriad of volunteers to helped build the playground. After speaking and thanking the organizations and volunteers, he re-

ceives a quick tour of the newly installed structure. The Carson Road housing development is a project Watson has had his eye on ever since he was in charge of municipal affairs and housing. “It’s nice to see things come full circle,” he said. The fourth stop of the morning is a visit to Strathcona Park in the city’s Sandy Hill neighbourhood, where the 13th annual Art in Strathcona Park is taking place. “This was once a golf course,” said Watson. He strolls up and down the sidewalk, glancing at the art on display, and shaking hands with the artists, expressing amazement at their work. The mayor’s a familiar face to a few who say they have met him before at another event. After stopping at all the vendors, it’s time to take off for the fifth event of the day – the Muslim Summer Festival at Britannia Park, hosted by the Muslim Association of Canada. There he receives a cultural lesson as he walks from tent to tent, and is greeted by the organizers, joined by fellow area politicians including Ottawa South MP David McGuinty, Ottawa South MPP-elect John Fraser, and council colleague Shad Qadri. The sixth stop of the day is the annual garlic festival at the Carp Farmers Market. A traffic jam into Carp slows the drive into the village, and causes time at the festival to be a bit shorter than expected. After finding Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, the two present an award to the best garlic booth. Glancing at his watch, the mayor says it’s time to motor, and head to his seventh event in the west end, Glabar Park Community Fun Day, in Carlingwood, where he grabs a bite to eat, makes the rounds, and then departs again, this time for Orléans. “It’s hard to try and eat healthy when you’re on the run,” he said. The eighth event of the day is a big one for the mayor, who delivers congratulatory remarks on the 30th anniversary of the Orléans Day Care

The ninth event of the day is Festival of India at City Hall, an event the mayor attended earlier to but didn’t have as much time to visit. The tenth event is Jam Day at Mooney’s Bay Park, where the mayor greets the masses gathered and congratulates them on their achieve-

ments. The next and last event of the day is the Chinese Night Market at the T&T Superstore, where the mayor is practically a celebrity as he poses for photos and enjoys a shrimp delicacy. It’s 5 p.m., and before he knows it, the day is done. A family supper will round out the evening before he is at it again the next morning.

And Watson wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world. “People ask me why I go to all these events, but I feel it’s important to go and to show support because the organizers have spent so much time putting it together,” he says. “The least I can do is show up for even half an hour or so to thank them.”

Be loud, be proud Ottawa

C

apital Pride returns to Ottawa starting this weekend. The theme for this year’s festival is Be Loud, Be Proud. This is a message that all Canadians can take to heart, to celebrate our nation’s acceptance of all citizens regardless of their race, language, religion or sexual identity. These are basic human rights entrenched in Canada’s Charter, despite lingering opposition from fringe groups. Canada’s good example is even more noticeable when compared with our international counterparts. Russia, for instance, has drawn criticism from across the globe for a law that bans gay pride rallies and forbids even discussing homosexuality with youth. The Russian sport minister pledged to hold athletes attending the 2014 Sochi Olympics accountable if they went out on the streets and attempted to “propagandize.� The move was criticized by John Baird, Canada’s foreign affairs minister, who said the Russian minister’s statements were “an incitement to intolerance which breeds hate.� But Baird’s comments immediately drew fire

from Real Women of Canada. The conservative women’s group said Baird’s comments stepped on the toes of another country’s sovereignty, family and religious values. Defending a country’s action based on its cultural/socio-religious identity is a tired argument that too often has been trotted out for public display in the aftermath of human rights abuses. The rights and freedoms of the individual are a basic human law that predates and supersedes the sovereignty and constitutions of nations. Real Women’s comments were immediately slammed by Canadians across the country, highlighting the cultural shift from intolerance to acceptance that has taken place over recent decades. This national movement toward tolerance is by no means strictly a Canadian phenomenon. Recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered rights are gaining acceptance across North America and Europe, albeit at different rates and to different degrees. In the United States, even the Grand Old Party has grudgingly accepted the inevitability of gay marriage. As Sam Cooke once so eloquently wrote, change is gonna come.

Quebec offers unique European experience for visitors

W

e recently ventured to the Eastern Townships of Quebec to visit my husband’s family. Our weekend trip cemented two ideas in my mind: It’s really frightening using the province’s infrastructure; but maybe the money spent on cultural protectionism over the past five decades has been worthwhile. I mean, there’s just something about Quebec, isn’t there? You really do feel like you’re in another country. It’s not just the sinkholes and crumbling bridges. There is a provincial warmth melded with a European class among the people there that I’ve yet to find in other places in Canada. It’s politically incorrect to say this in some circles, but there is truly a distinct culture in Quebec. The Quebecois don’t just talk differently from the rest of Canada; they also eat differently, greet differently and share their opinions in a unique way. And much of it comes down to the preservation of the family meal. It’s the way they linger over the preparation of food that stands out in my mind. It’s the way wine is central to the occasion.

Unlike the rest of us who are stocking up at the LCBO before a long weekend, most Quebec families I know keep a box of wine in the fridge for informal occasions. But when there is a more formal gathering, one can count on the celebratory pop of the cork of a slightly upscale vintage. Everyone partakes, and even some of the older kids get to have a sip or a small glass. And people are very relaxed about drinking, generally. The wine is as important to them as the food. It isn’t guzzled, but drunk slowly between small bites. I realize I’m romanticizing a bit here, but there is, in fact, some hard evidence to back what I’m saying. Believe it or not, the Quebecois actually shop for food differently from the rest of us.

Believe it or not, the Quebecois actually shop for food differently from the rest of us. This appreciation of food is benefiting their waistlines. Because although – according to a Nielsen survey conducted last year – the Quebecois have a sweeter tooth than the rest of us, they also have some of the lowest rates of obesity. Finally, a study published by the Vanier Institute for the Family a few years ago found that people in Quebec are more likely to sit down multiple times per week for a family dinner than

According to a study commissioned by a national grocers association last year, the Quebecois are much more likely to visit the store daily to purchase precisely what they need to cook a particular meal, for example. They also demand a much broader selection of meat – not just striploin steaks and boneless chicken breast, but also bison, various cuts of lamb and venison. And they buy smaller portions. Not just of meat, but of other things too.

those living elsewhere in Canada. It’s around the table, noted the authors, that parents are best able to connect with children, and that people can debate issues of the day or share their ideas and emotions. From food to thought, there is a true richness in Quebec I haven’t experienced since I lived in Europe for a few years. If that weren’t enough to make me want to spend more time over the border in La Belle Province, the fact that I can purchase wine and beer at the camp store in their provincial park clinches the notion that I should “travel abroad� more often.

Parade to return to familiar environs amid LRT construction Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - The organizers of the 2013 Capital Pride Festival are looking forward to taking their signature parade back to its roots this year. Held Aug. 16 to 25, the festival will see over 30 LGBT groups from the Ottawa area stage more than 75 events throughout the city. In a break from recent years – due to the construction of Ottawa’s downtown LRT tunnel – the Aug. 25 Pride Parade will be moved from Wellington Street to Bank Street, home of the city’s newly designated LGBT Village. The return to Bank Street is something organizers are excited about, given the street hasn’t hosted the parade in nearly a decade. “Its roots are on Bank Street,” said Brody Fraser, Capital Pride’s vice-chair of communications. “It’s a great place and has a much more intimate feel to it.” As part of the LGBT Village’s official designation, the City of Ottawa installed branding that signifies the cultural heritage of the area – generally agreed as being located between James and Nepean streets and spanning a block on both sides of Bank. Local shop owners in the village and the committee members who nurture it boosted the theme by installing their

Thousands gathered in downtown Ottawa last year to take part in the 2012 Capital Pride Parade. This year’s parade will travel down Bank Street for the first time in nearly a decade, due in part to LRT construction work occurring on the former Wellington Street staging ground. in 1986 – both in terms of size and community acceptance. In the ensuing years, more emphasis has been placed on recognizing the many supporters and advocates who have worked to further the cause of LGBT rights and acceptance.

own flags and lights. Presenting sponsor of this year’s Capital Pride Festival is Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, while TD Bank returns as a major festival sponsor. “More businesses on Bank Street are taking part in the festival this year,” said Fraser. “Henry’s (Camera) is working with our marketing team to set up a photo booth at the festival.” The festival as a whole has evolved since it was first held

Reflecting this, 2013 will see an expansion of the parade marshals program, with Jay Koornstra of Bruce House serving as grand parade marshal, Amanda Ryan of Gender Mosaic as lifetime achievement marshal, Mike Tattersall of National Capital Leather Pride as community builder marshal, LGBT youth activist Erika Butler as youth marshal, and Jamaican LGBT activist Maurice Thomlinson as international marshal.

The role and importance of youth has emerged as a growing focus not just for Capital Pride, but LGBT organizations country-wide. Their youth program has expanded in recent years into a nearly standalone entity called ‘Etc.’ Etc. is run for youth, by youth, and led by Capital Pride’s youngest-ever board member, 18-year-old Hannah Watt, who first joined Capital Pride as a volunteer a few years ago. Watt said the first LGBT activists were largely composed of young adults who experienced harsh victimization and were often expelled from their homes due to their sexual orientation. Time marched on, and headway was made over the ensuing years in terms of rights and protection. However, even as victories are declared in certain battles, with each new generation comes new challenges and reasons for advocacy. When youth meet at Etc.’s monthly meetings and events, they are encouraged to take a look at their environment and iden-

tify what they like seeing and what they’d like to improve.

“We’re seeing people looking at past accomplishments,

discussing current issues and deciding what they’d like to fight for,” said Watt. Watt said she is grateful for the hard-working, inspirational volunteers that make up Etc’s committee, as they have had their hands full planning not just regular events, but the expanded lineup of Capital Pride Festival youth events. “They work wonderfully together,” said Watt, describing the range of festival youth events. For the first time, this year’s “Pride Guide” will have a section devoted to youth, making it easier for them to find the times and places of the transitfriendly events. These include an open mic night at Umi Café on Aug. 10, an opening party on Aug. 15, an outdoor day in Hintonburg Park on Aug. 21, and the annual Pride Prom at Pink Triangle Services on Aug. 23. Etc. will have their own float in the Pride Parade, the organization (and design) of which is another responsibility for the youth.

Don’t become complacent about crime: police Calls for service in 2012: 15,247 Calls for service in 2011: 15,620 Change: down 2.4 per cent

Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

Community – Speeding, break and enters, theft, youth crime and property offences are the top crime concerns in south Ottawa, say police. The Ottawa Police Service recently released their annual crime, police, and traffic statistics report for all the city’s wards, and in the south, found that property crime rose 16 per cent in Alta Vista, nearly two per cent in GloucesterSouthgate, and decreased one per cent in River Ward. While crimes including traffic violations increased slightly in Gloucester-Southgate, they rose 11 per cent in Alta Vista, and 0.5 per cent in River Ward. Total drug offences rose 24 per cent in River Ward, decreased 11 per cent in GloucesterSouthgate, and went up five per cent in Alta Vista. But calls for service went down in all the south Ottawa wards. In Gloucester-Southgate, calls were down 17 per cent; in River two per cent, and in Alta Vista six per cent. Over the past few years, property offences, robberies, and theft from vehicles were the trends seen in south Ottawa, so the recent crime trend report for 2011-12 is not vastly different, said Insp. Michel Marin. Police are pushing residents to keep on reporting crime or suspicious activity in their community. But, the newest crime trends show the message of reporting crime is getting through to residents, says Insp. Michel Marin. “Sometimes we hear about crimes that happen after the fact,” he said. “The key is getting the message out that every crime is important to report. Some people say that things happen all the time, but we won’t know about it unless it’s reported. There is still hesitancy for people to call a lot of the time, mostly because they don’t feel it’s important, but it really provides us with valuable leads even if suspicious activity is reported.” Of course, in the summer time, criminal and suspicious activity is on the rise, Marin added. Park problems, such as loitering or property crime, are more apt to take place during the warmer seasons. In the summer, break-ins are on the rise, and sometimes it’s because residents leave their windows open to let in a cool breeze, so the premises are less secure and easier for vandals to break into, Marin added. “Residents become overly complacent,” he added. Another tactic criminals engage in is something the police call “dooring” – that is, the action of going from door-to-door of every vehicle to see if someone has left their door unlocked. “This is a new trend we are seeing,” said Marin. “This is a behavioural routine with them. We try to convey to residents to not give them (criminals) something that will encourage crime. Always keep your doors locked.” But residences and vehicles are just two examples of where crime can take place. New commercial developments are also an easy target for vandals, said Marin. Sometimes, when one area has a higher crime rate than another, it could be a case of the same individual committing the same crime repeatedly, Marin said. “It can be misleading when you look at the crime statistics,” he said. Const. Rebecca Vanderwater, South Ottawa community police officer, echoed Marin’s comments, saying calls to police always remain anonymous, and officers are thankful for the information they receive. “We rely heavily on the community to com-

Period film shows off Ottawa’s heritage Production shoots at Cumberland Village, ByWard Market Cumberland Village Heritage Museum. The crew had to remove museum signs and wheel chair ramps but that was about it. “It was great, because it is a village,” Menzies said.

Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Arts - Ottawa’s heritage got the chance to shine as one of the lead roles in an 1812 period film shot in the city this summer. Tell the World, tells the story of the origins of the Seventh-Day Adventists. The film is set in 1812-70. The $5 million budget film employed more than 90 Ottawa-area actors, 1000 extras and 100 local crew members were hired. The film shot on location at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, the ByWard Market, Upper Canada Village in Cornwall and at a studio in Ottawa South.

Producer and president of Zed Filmworks Robert Menzies said it’s the sixth film the company has produced and shot in Ottawa this year and the 21st film the company has filmed in the city since 2007 and the first period piece for the company. Menzies credits the city for the successful shoot. “We work in a small community and have to be aware of the public,” Menzies said. “But the public is great. Everyone is friendly. That’s what’s great about Ottawa - people are excited to have us here.” According to Menzies, one of the hardest things was to make sure the locations, costumes and props were historically correct. “It was a very big challenge - and this is why I am so proud of my Ottawa crew, they really rose to the challenge,” he said.

Shooting in the market had its challenges, mostly because the busy downtown tourist spot doesn’t stop because of a film, but Menzies said businesses, residents and tourists were all accommodating. “This is what is so good about shooting in Ottawa, everybody is there to help,” Menzies said. “We worked with the BIA, Invest Ottawa and the residents who lived in the condos in the area and everybody gave us full reign to do what we needed to do.” The producer, always thinking about dollars being spent and time allotted to get things done, credits the community’s support to shooting on schedule and without any problems. The film is wrapped and post-production will take place in Australia, who supplied most of the funding for the production. The intent is to have a theatrical release. As far as the little Ottawa film company that can, there are no breaks in-between projects. With the upcoming release of the House at the End of the Street, staring Jennifer Lawrence, as well as a recently wrapped shoot with Two and a Half Men star John Cryer, the producer said it’s onward and upward to the next film.

Road safety advocates honoured with awards Staff

Community - Thirteen individuals and organizations in Ottawa have been recognized with Road Safety Achievement Awards for outstanding contributions to road safety initiatives in the community. The awards were handed out by Glen Murray, Ontario minister of transportation and minister of Infrastructure, and Mayor Jim Watson. “These awards recognize outstanding individuals and organizations that are helping to make our roads safer for everyone,â€? he said. “By recognizing these achievements, we are also helping to raise awareness of road safety while reminding people to travel safely and responsibly.â€? “Many recipients are committed volunteers who are making our roads safer for all users, including our cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and motorists,â€? Watson said. Ottawa’s 2012 Road Safety Achievement Awards nominees are: • A1 Secure Initiative (Ottawa Public Health’s car seat program) • Barbara Mews (recipient of the road safety professional award) • Cycling Safety Awareness Program • Hand in Hand Committee (Focus on the PACE Car Program) • Hot 89.9 FM (Leave the Phone Alone Campaign) • Lights on Bikes initiative (Citizens for Safe Cycling, RightBike, Pathway Patrol Program) • Operation Toe Tag (Club Optimiste Vanier)

• Ottawa Safety Council – motorcycle instructors • Ottawa Safety Council – school zone trafďŹ c safety program • Pathway Patrol Program • Pattison Signs • Sgt. John Kiss – Ottawa Police Service • Workplace Cycling Safety Program These awards recognize excellence in the following categories: road safety achievement – professional; road safety achievement – volunteer; media excellence in road safety; corporate leadership in road safety; road safety partnerships and road safety initiative of the year. The city’s own safer roads action plan is also helping work towards the goal of keeping people safe on the streets, said Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli, chairman of the transportation committee. “As we continue to strive towards having the safest trafďŹ c environment in all of Ontario, it is important to recognize the efforts of the members of our community and also the successes of our Safer Roads Ottawa Program,â€? he said. The Safer Roads Ottawa Program (ottawa.ca/sro) is a plan to prevent any deaths or serious injuries on the roads through culture change, community engagement and by creating a sustainable safe transportation environment. It is a community partnership between police, ďŹ reďŹ ghters, paramedics, public works and Ottawa Public Health and the Public Works Department.

Sports - Chad Bush was named the Premier Development League’s top goalkeeper in an Aug. 3 awards ceremony in Texas. Bush, who plays for the Ottawa Fury soccer team, won the award at the 2013 PDL awards banquet following the 2013 league championships in Austin, Texas. He lead the league in shutouts, locking down nine through out the regular and post-season, and helped lead the Fury to a Northeast Division title this year. Bush gained the starting keeper role after Nils Carlson suffered an injury in early June, and helped the Fury ďŹ nish with an 8-0-1 record in the regular season. He got on a shutout streak at one point, playing 830 minutes for the Fury without letting in a goal. The 6-foot-2 keeper was also named to the league’s all-conference and all-league teams, and was nominated for the league’s young player of the year award. He attended Louis Riel and the Fury youth academy, before joining the PDL squad. He started in 2008 as a member of the 14-and-under age group competitive team before signing with the Toronto FC academy team and moving to Toronto. In 2011, he was chosen to play for Canada at the U17 FIFA World Cup, and has been selected as one of the 19 players to move forward to the Canadian under-20 camp to prepare for the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Acting company open for business Theatre education for novices, young and old alike Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Arts - Ever wanted to see if you have what it takes to perform in front of a crowd? Always wanted to try out for the local community play, but unsure? Or are you over the age of 65 and looking for a new way to express yourself? Well in the Glebe, down a long hallway in the old Avalon Theatre, there’s a place just for you. The Acting Company offers theatre education for young, old and anywhere in between. They have classes for the shy corporate business executive. They have courses for aspiring young talent and aspiring seniors who either want to try out acting for the first time or get back to it. “This company is about teaching recreational actors, who may not necessarily want to act as a profession, but want to act on the side,” said co-founder Chris Ralph. “Our goal is to help people communicate

better in life, and in acting, to help people who are looking for real practical outcome. It’s open for everyone.” The company was formed by Ralph and John Muggleton. When it comes to teaching, both are very experienced. Ralph works at the Gladstone Theatre and is an acting coach and teacher who taught at York University, the University of Ottawa, the Ottawa Theatre School and Algonquin College. Muggleton, a recipient of the Audrey Ashley award for his dedication to the Ottawa theatre community, is an actor, director and teacher. Ralph said the company’s goal is more than just teaching classes. The group is looking to create a downtown arts hub. “Our doors are always open; we will always have the coffee on,” he said. And the space Ralph and Muggleton have acquired for the company is perfect. It is the former original stage of the Glebe’s old Avalon Theatre – at 738 Bank St. – complete with the old stairs, rafters and brick walls. “To look at the building from the outside, you’d never know there was this incredible space hiding under all that plaster,” Ralph said “But when we went up the stairs we were stunned to find ourselves on the original stage. It has 30-foot-high

for plays and events. Classes will be a mix. There is a seniors-only class available during the day, which will focus on content relevant to people over the age of 55, regardless of tal-

ent or experience. There will also be classes focused on improv, monologue and audition technique, communications, acting for cameras, and playwriting. Children’s classes will start at age five, and a teen Shakespeare ensemble and an audition “boot camp” will be offered to senior high school students. All courses require registration and vary in pricing. More information about the courses is available online at actingcompany.ca. In addition to rolling out the educational programming from Mondays to Thursdays, Ralph said the building will be open Friday to Sunday, when the space will be available for performances or events. The company has already attracted partners such as Ottawa School of Speech and Drama. The school’s executive director, Amanda Lewis, has founded a new group called the Ottawa Children’s Theatre and will offer classes for children and youth there. Theatre educators Kristina Watt, award-winning playwright Laurie Fyffe, local Glebe resident Mary Ellis, and Gemini winner Robert Bachstael have also joined the company. Some classes have already begun, with the full programming starting in September. Visit actingcompany.ca for more information.

TransCanada plans oil pipeline John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News - A million barrels a day of crude oil could soon be travelling by pipeline through south Ottawa and the upper Ottawa Valley. TransCanada Corporation announced Aug. 1 that it is proceeding with the proposed Energy East Pipeline. Part of that project features the conversion of one of two natural gas pipelines through the Ottawa and the Valley from a gas to an oil pipeline. TransCanada representatives met with municipal officials in June to give them a heads-up on the proposed transformation that will take about four years to complete. They noted that converting the existing pipeline would be much less disruptive than building a new one. They’ve indicated there will be public information meetings on the plan this fall, likely in October, well before any work is done. The gas pipeline in question runs down the Ottawa Valley from Pembroke through the Pakenham area and then into south Ottawa near Richmond area and then to Iro-

quois. In its news release, TransCanada announced it is moving forward with the 1.1-million-barrel-per-day Energy East Pipeline project based on receiving binding, long-term contracts from producers and refiners. The company says the contracts for about 900,000 barrels a day of oil confirmed strong market support for a pipeline that will, if all regulatory approvals are granted, transport crude oil from Western Canada to eastern Canadian refineries and export terminals. “We are very pleased with the outcome of the open season for the Energy East Pipeline held earlier this year and are excited to move forward with a major project that will bring many benefits across Canada,� said TransCanada CEO Russ Girling. HISTORIC

“This is an historic opportunity to connect the oil resources of Western Canada to the consumers of eastern Canada, creating jobs, tax revenue and energy security for all Canadians for decades to come.� TransCanada representatives told local municipal councils that the pipeline will give eastern Canadians a stable and reliable supply of crude oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan

and cut down this area’s dependence on imported crude oil. Eastern Canada currently imports about 700,000 barrels of oil a day. The project involves converting about 3,000 kilometres of natural gas pipeline to crude oil service and constructing about 1,400 kilometres of new pipeline. The pipeline will terminate in Saint John, N.B., where TransCanada and Irving Oil have formed a joint venture to build, own and operate a new deep water marine terminal that will send the oil to overseas markets. The pipeline is expected to cost about $12 billion and be in service by late 2017 for deliveries in Quebec and 2018 for deliveries to New Brunswick. The company is promising to “engage in open and meaningful discussions with aboriginal communities and key stakeholder groups� along the pipeline route. Some groups, including Greenpeace, the Council of Canadians and Ecology Ottawa, have expressed concern about having an oil pipeline going through the area, citing recent spills in the U.S. For more information about the Energy East Pipeline project, visit www.energyeastpipeline.com or www.oleoducenergist.com.

     Keeping us connected with everything and everyone, our ability to hear is priceless. Unfortunately, one in ten of us suffer from hearing loss. If ignored, even the slightest hearing loss has signiďŹ cant consequences. You become disconnected from your world as loved ones become mumblers and asking to repeat becomes a nuisance. Your safety and independence is compromised. You risk misdiagnoses and diminishing cognitive abilities. Indeed, untreated or improperly treated hearing loss has a pronounced negative impact on your quality of life. Consulting the appropriate hearing healthcare provider, in the most independent setting, is crucial. Privately owned and operated by Doctor of Audiology Rosanne McNamee, Hearing Solutions Clinic adopts a unique and refreshing approach to patient care which differs drastically with that of retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. When you walk into Hearing Solutions Clinic, there are no crowded waiting rooms, commission staff or sales tactics. Rather, you will feel at home as you are greeted in an environment with old fashion roots where the focus is personalized hearing healthcare, not hearing aid sales. From your very ďŹ rst visit, you become part of a team working together to reach one goal: to meet your hearing needs. Hearing Solutions Clinic is large enough to offer amazing professional services and products, yet small enough to devote all the time necessary for uncompromised customized care. You will get top quality, integrity, and no shortcuts. Based on past experiences at other hearing clinics, patients are often pleasantly surprised by not only the thoroughness, attentiveness and inclusiveness at Hearing Solutions Clinic, but also the product selection. ‘’Our patients are our top priority. We will never limit their hearing device options as others doâ€? says Rosanne.‘’We remain

independent so that all makes and models may be sold and serviced.’’ This enables Hearing Solutions Clinic to better meet your unique hearing needs, and at a competitive price because Hearing Solutions Clinic doesn’t have the enormous overhead of larger clinics nor does it have investors to please. Rosanne further distinguishes herself from the other clinics by solely hiring professionals that are regulated and hold the highest level of education in the hearing healthcare ďŹ eld. There are no Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Solutions Clinic, only Audiologists who are diligent at keeping the clinic up-to-date in technology and practice. They are qualiďŹ ed to service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WSIB, DVA, ACSD, etc). In addition, Rosanne protects the special quality of her clinic by ensuring that all employees share the core values, beliefs and principles that created Hearing Solutions Clinic over a decade ago. Consequently, you receive the service of professionals who are not only top in their ďŹ eld, but who pride themselves on offering quality products and the highest standard of care. “Hearing is complex and so are today’s hearing aids,â€? Rosanne explains. “Dealing with the most qualiďŹ ed health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.’’ At Hearing Solutions Clinic you will never worry whether or not you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs. So, if you believe in your right to the best, fullest and most customized service available, book your consultation with an Audiologist at Hearing Solutions Clinic. There are two convenient locations to serve you. Parking is free! Home visits optional.

Free Presto card offer comes to an end Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - If you’re still looking for a free Presto card, you’re out of luck. As of yesterday, Aug. 14, the city expected to have distributed all 145,000 smart cards, which can be loaded with a bus pass or cash value to pay for trips on buses and the O-Train. Ecopass users, students and selected community groups will still get free Presto cards as planned. City of Ottawa employees who used Ecopass will get Presto cards in September and federal government employees will switch over in October. Students who receive OC Transpo passes through their school boards will get the Presto card when they return to school in September, and OC Transpo will set up on campus at Algonquin College and La Cité Collégiale to hand out free cards once classes begin. From now on, it will cost $6 to obtain each card (including replacements). The user can then go online to prestocard. ca or to an OC Transpo sales and information centres to purchase and load a pass or cash balance, called “e-purse.” Presto cards are available in person at: • Rideau Station • Lincoln Fields Station • St. Laurent Station

FILE

The city’s offer of a free Presto card has ended. The cards now sell for $6 each. • Place D’Orléans Station • City hall (110 Laurier Ave. W.) • Ben Franklin Place (101 Centrepointe Dr., Nepean) • Kanata client service centre (main level, 580 Terry Fox Dr.) The city has lowered fares on the Presto card to encourage riders to adopt the new form of

payment. One adult fare using a Presto cash balance costs $2.72, while tickets cost $3 per ride and a cash fare will set you back $3.40 per ride. The minimum first purchase when a rider obtains a card in person or online is $10. If using a cash balance on your Presto card, the city recommends setting up the auto-

reload feature to automatically top up the card’s balance when it reaches a minimum amount. That avoids delays in reloading the cards, because cash added

to your card online may not be accessible to use for 24 to 48 hours after reloading the card. September monthly passes will be available starting Aug.

18. Presto cards are not accepted on Para Transpo vehicles because the technology isn’t compatible.

PROGRESS AND GREEN SPACE AT LANSDOWNE By Jim Watson

In July we broke ground on the urban park, which will be one of the great features of the new Lansdowne. Until now, the irony of the name Lansdowne Park was that there was very little parkland on the site. We are ďŹ nally replacing the sea of asphalt with useable park space for all residents to enjoy. The new Lansdowne Park will be a complete community with opportunities for shopping,recreation activities,football,soccer, and an urban park. These features will solidify Lansdowne as one of the marquee destinations in Ottawa. The urban park promises to be a signiďŹ cant upgrade over the EXISTING FACILITY THREE TIMES MORE PARK SPACE  ACRES FOUR times more trees, 7.2 kilometres of sidewalks and pathways, and ďŹ ve pieces of public art.

Mother was in a fit state

M

other was in a state! Aunt Lizzie was on her way from Regina for her annual summer visit. As usual, she gave little notice. A letter had come just days before she was to arrive. That gave little time for Mother to get the house in spic and span order. Father reminded her she had just torn the whole place upside down for the spring cleaning. “That was months ago, Albert. And you know your sister. She can spot a fleck of dust a mile away.� Aunt Lizzie would be given the bed Audrey and I slept in, and that meant we would be sent down to the creton couch in the kitchen, where we would have to sleep foot-to-foot since it was so narrow. Heaven forbid that Aunt Lizzie would sleep on a feather mattress, which was what was on Audrey’s and my bed. The only felt mattress was on Mother and Father’s bed in the downstairs bedroom. That meant the brothers had to haul down the one from upstairs, and lug the other one upstairs, which didn’t please them a bit. After all, it was a Saturday, and they had planned on a day of fishing in the Bonnechere...not a day spent lugging mattresses

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories

up and down the stairs. But with Aunt Lizzie coming, every hand was put to use. That is, all except Father. He wanted no part of what he considered unnecessary work. He escaped to the barns, telling Mother it was time he did something about that broken door in the cow byre. He would appear only for his meals until Mother’s frantic house cleaning was over. My sister and I also had to give up our little shared washstand in our bedroom. It had to be completely emptied, and washed inside and out. What a carry-on, just because Aunt Lizzie was coming from Regina. Getting the food ready was a challenge in itself. Even though Aunt Lizzie was born and bred on that homestead out in Northcote, you would never know she had ever breathed a breath of air from Renfrew County. There would be no salt pork for breakfast, and certainly pork hocks, and mud pout would never see the light of day all the R0012233909

time Aunt Lizzie’s visit lasted. So as soon as the house was cleaned from top to bottom, Mother set to baking. The old Findlay Oval was fair jumping, as pie after pie, Johnny cake, and bread puddings were made and stacked in the ice box. A loaf of store-bought bread, and a real pound of butter replaced what we ate every day of our lives on the farm. Mother, once again, asked Father to please refrain from cooling his tea in his saucer while his sister was here, but her request, I knew, would fall on deaf ears. As far as Father was concerned, he wasn’t about to change his habits just because Aunt Lizzie was coming with her high-falutin airs. Even though Aunt Lizzie caused complete bedlam in our household before and during her visit, I loved when she came from Regina. She always brought me something special. One time it was a doll, which, except for its body, was made of china. Even its little arms and legs were China. I used to think she was the smartest thing to ever step off the train in Renfrew Station. She always wore pure white ... a white dress in the latest fashion ... and a big wide red leghorn hat, and white gloves that went all the way up to her elbow. And on the outside of those spanking white gloves was a big red glass ring. Tiny red patent-leather shoes 7,&2

Mayor’s Report

completed the outfit. I would marvel at the wealth of our western cousins. Didn’t her two sons go to university? Of course, it was Aunt Lizzie who once or twice a year packed a big wood tea box full of clothes no longer suitable for her sons, and send it off to Renfrew on the train. It was the handme-down box. Now, once again, Aunt Lizzie was coming to visit. Finally, the house was spotless. We were warned to take our shoes off at the door, not to touch the woodwork which had just been polished, and to make sure our bedrooms were kept spotlessly clean – a tall order for five rambunctious kids. Aunt Lizzie was to arrive in three days. We couldn’t be more ready. Then the phone rang one morning, just after our breakfast. It was the stationmaster in Renfrew. There was a telegram from the west. Mother asked him to read it. It was from Aunt Lizzie, and she was so sorry, but her trip had to be cancelled because Uncle Jack was getting an unexpected award from the CPR, and it was on the very weekend she planned on leaving. They had been given a trip to Calgary. Her trip would have to wait until the next summer. Mother asked the stationmaster to read it again. After she hung up the phone, she let out the biggest sigh which I thought could be heard in Douglas. For supper that night Mother hauled out a pie from the ice box, we all had store-bought bread with real butter, we five kids sat at the table with our shoes on, and there sat Father with his tea in his saucer, cooling it off until it was fit to drink.

Six new Alstom train sets were purchased earlier this year to replace the original fleet of three Bombardier diesel trains. The Alstoms will enter service in 2014 following a period of testing.

An old regional policy, advising builders on how to protect wildlife while constructing new buildings, is set to be updated at the beginning of the year.

Wildlife construction protocol developing Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - An old regional policy, advising builders on how to protect wildlife while constructing new buildings, is set to be updated at the beginning of the year. One of the last holdovers from amalgamation, the wildlife construction protocol isn’t in use because it doesn’t meet current regulations, including provincial policies. The protocol will be updated at the beginning of 2014 as one of the first tasks resulting from the city’s new wildlife strategy, which council adopted in July. The old regional protocol outlines when contact with wildlife could be anticipated and advises on appropriate measures to prevent harm to animals and their habitats during construction. Getting a jump on that work was a priority for two city councillors who told their colleagues during the July 17 council meeting that residents have been calling their offices bemoaning the lack of discussion about wildlife in urban areas. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said the downtown wards may have even more wildlife issues per capita than the city’s rural areas. “We may have fewer coyotes, deer and moose in capital ward … Because it’s squirrels, skunks, raccoons and others, it doesn’t mean it’s not wildlife,” Chernushenko said. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said she has also been receiving calls from residents asking for another public meeting to

discuss wildlife in the urban area. Lee Ann Snedden, the city’s manager of policy development and urban design, said a meeting to be held about the construction protocol in the new year will be a chance to do just that. Implementing the recently adopted wildlife strategy will focus on education and prevention of human-animal conflicts, Snedden said. Those approaches will be tailored to both rural and urban areas. The strategy reads: “Many conflicts result from carelessness or lack of knowledge of private citizens and public officials regarding the needs and behaviours of wildlife, especially urban wildlife. Property owners may inadvertently create the conditions that attract wildlife and put them at risk.” “I believe this strategy will address issues in all those areas,” Snedden said. Previously, rural councillors have raised the issue of urbanites who move to a rural area could find themselves in conflict with wildlife if they aren’t aware of how to deal with animals. “The biggest issue is (that) we have people from the urban area moving into the rural area,” said West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry. The new wildlife strategy also proposes city council consider hiring a new staffer: a wildlife officer. Snedden agreed that staff could report back to city council in 2014 with a timeline for when the department will request to add that salary to the city’s budget.

Leadman takes expertise north to Bank Street BIA Former city councillor excited to get projects going Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Bank Street Business Improvement Area has a new leader. Christine Leadman, former city councillor and current executive director of the Glebe Business Improvement Area, is headed north on Bank Street to take over the reigns of the downtown BIA. “I think anything new is exciting,” Leadman said. “I think for every location, every job you take on, the new things you learn, the creativeness ... your mind is active and the end result is the community benefit that arrives from that.” Leadman is a BIA executive veteran. She led the charge in making Westboro the business and community hub it is today as the executive director for that area for more than 14 years. After serving as Kitchissippi ward councillor from 200610 she then took on the role as the Glebe BIA’s executive

director. Now, Leadman said she is looking forward to taking on a new challenge. “Downtown Bank Street used to be Ottawa’s downtown, but it has been really overshadowed because of other successful streets, like, and I hate to say it, Westboro, and that shouldn’t be the case,” Leadman said. “It’s not that the bones aren’t there, but it’s that it’s just gotten lost.” Leadman said the Bank Street BIA board has been very proactive as of late, working hard with beautification efforts and promotion and that she is looking forward to working with them to continue along the same path. She added the street has a lot of areas to focus on, including a younger demographic moving into the downtown condominiums, many new and different types of businesses opening up along the street and the strong lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community.

Starting in September, Christine Leadman, executive director of the Glebe Business Improvement Area, will be moving north to the Bank Street Business Improvement Area to take on the role as new executive director.

Leadman said it is just a matter of finding a way to tie them all together. A co-founder of Westfest in Westboro, Leadman said she is looking forward to working with the Bank Street BIA’s marketing committee to discuss organizing similar events. “It’s now about sitting down with the committee and brainstorming, talk about what the great things that are going on. It’s through that kind of interaction and team work that you come up with the ideas,” she said. Having worked in the Glebe for the past three years, Leadman said she is going to miss the community spirit and the friends she has made. “I am just north of there, so it’s not so bad,” Leadman added. Any good you do will benefit all of Bank Street (including the Glebe area).” Leadman officially takes on the role starting in September.

CHRISSY

LADY GAGA

ID#A068449

ID#A157325

Meet Chrissy. She’s a spayed female, brown Abyssinian and tabby domestic shorthair cat who’s looking for her forever home. She’s about two-years-old and was brought to the shelter as a stray on March 22. Chrissy is a classy, exotic-looking kitty who loves her peace and quiet. That means

she’d be happiest in a home with older teens or adults. She’d love to just curl up in a sunny patch on your living room floor. This kitty has a true Abyssinian personality, which means Chrissy is a bit of a diva. But can you blame her? She’s beautiful and she knows it.

Meet Lady Gaga, a two-year-old, spayed female, calico domestic longhair cat who was surrendered by her owner on June 18 and is ready to be adopted! She came to the shelter with her best friend Sunday (A102737), and would much prefer being accompanied by her when going to her new forever home. Lady Gaga has been known to use her scratching post daily, and would be okay with living with a gentle, and non-intrusive dog. She needs a quiet home with owners who will give her time to show her true self. She likes to play shy but with a few treats and time, she will surely blossom! Visit the OHS website at www. otVisit the OHS website at www. ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption.

Help a homeless pet on International Homeless Animals’ Day

Well you might ask, how does a white cat come to be called Blackie. His original name was Bowie, as in David Bowie who has two different coloured eyes. However, I was hoping for a female kitten when I got him and so, somewhat irrationally, I renamed him, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, for the hard-rocking girl band. Since Blackie knows who he is and as such, refuses to come to Joan, I shortened his name to the only other possibility, Blackie. He is everyone’s little darling here in Centretown. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç 32

amount of time it takes to care for an animal. Right now, the OHS has approximately 105 cats, 20 dogs, and 20 small animals available for adoption, with 227 animals in foster care. With about seven animals entering our care daily, you can expect to see those numbers increase. So what can you do to help Ottawa’s homeless animals on Aug. 17? Spay or neuter your animals: If your pet has a litter, even if you find homes for most of the puppies or kittens, in one year, all those puppies or kittens could have litters of their own. Millions of dollars are spent annually to care for lost, abandoned and unwanted pets. Contact your local vet or the City of Ottawa Spay/Neuter Clinic to discuss the best age at which to spay your pet. Adopt from the Ottawa Humane Society:

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly! To learn more about adopting an animal from the Ottawa Humane Society please contact us: Website: lll#diiVlV]jbVcZ#XV Email: 6Ydei^dch5diiVlV]jbVcZ#XV Telephone:+&(,'*"(&++m'*-

Not only are you giving an animal a second chance at the life they deserve, you are getting an animal that is spayed or neutered, has an implanted microchip, has been vet checked, and comes with six weeks of free pet health insurance – all for a low price! Donate or volunteer: Not ready to add a pet to your family but love animals? Hold your own event for the animals, become a PAW monthly donor, or check out the multiple volunteer opportunities at the OHS! Find out how you can help by visiting our website at www.ottawahumane.ca. Looking for the purrfect pal? Visit the OHS Adoption Centre, or one of our Pet Adoption Locations during the month of August, and bring home an adult cat for $125!

Though many pets are celebrated as family members, there are those that aren’t so lucky. Every day, the Ottawa Humane Society becomes a safe haven for animals that are lost, abandoned, neglected, or abused. During the summer months, our shelter fills up with animals and we are desperate to find them the loving homes they deserve. Why are there so many homeless pets? The answer isn’t simple. There are many reasons why people are surrendering their companion animals to the OHS, such as allergies, aggressive behaviour, a move, or they simply do not have the time. Pets are a responsibility that consume both your time and money. Costs such as food, toys, treats and, most importantly, veterinarian care add up quick and many people don’t take into consideration the

Family happy for communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support following cancer diagnosis Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - A Barrhaven couple is gearing up for another battle against cancer. Two-year-old Nicco Filoso was diagnosed with leukemia on July 29 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just a year after his older brother Matteo ďŹ nished treatment for bladder and prostate cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to take in. We had just started concentrating on our business again and really got back to work,â&#x20AC;? Lisa Garland said. Matteo was 16 months old when he was diagnosed with bladder and prostate cancer. The treatment was aggressive and time consuming. It ultimately ended in removal of Matteoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prostate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just starting to breathe again,â&#x20AC;? Garland said. But then Nicco started seeming pale and sluggish, with a lot of bruising. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little on edge because of Matteoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diagnosis, but I kept thinking there was no way both of them could have cancer,â&#x20AC;? Garland said. The family doctor agreed and initially diagnosed the problem as anemia, but blood

tests done on Nicco showed the leukemia. He was in the hospital six hours later. Garland said while the news is devastating, she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to keep going because I have my kids to think of. I have a 10-year-old who has to go through this again,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stronger than you think you are.â&#x20AC;? And strength of friends, family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and in some cases strangers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will help them get through, Garland said. Three kids from Barrhaven, Anna and Colin Gillespie and Olivia Bauer took up the challenge to help. They hosted a lemonade stand on the road to their cottage on Otter Lake near Smiths Falls on Aug. 3 to raise money to establish a lunch fund to provide homecooked meals for the family while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re busy at CHEO. The fund will also help provide Nicco with some fun things to do while heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s receiving treatment. Anna and Colinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Laurie Gillespie, said the three kids â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anna, 6, Colin, 10, and Olivia, 9 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; planned the lemonade stand at the cottage after one they hosted earlier in the

summer raised some money for the Ottawa Humane Society. Olivia is Niccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second cousin, so after the diagnosis, the girls decided the money they made would go to help him. Laurie said the kids worked the morning and managed to raise $97 on the small cottage road, and then they each put in a dollar of their own money to bring the total to $100. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then they just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quit, they took a small swim break and then spent the rest of the day there, bringing the total to $160,â&#x20AC;? Laurie said. Garland said it was nice to see strangers helping strangers. She added support from other parents facing the same situation came from a Facebook group called Momcology, which provides information on resources for parents whose children are undergoing cancer treatment. Aside from the treatment, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily parking costs to consider as well as time off work. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping Niccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treatment will be less aggressive than Matteoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but whatever happens will take a toll.
