EMC news – Canada’s Sweetheart is leading a capital campaign to build a seniors village next to the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre. Canadian figure skating legend Barbara Ann ScottKing was announced as one of three honourary co-chairs of the $5-million capital campaign on Wednesday, Aug. 8. She will be joining overall campaign co-chairs Grete Hale and retired Gen. Rick Hillier to lead the building choices, enriching lives capital campaign to help raise private contributions for the village. While the construction has been partially funded by the province, Perley Rideau still needs $5 million and hopes to get the money from the fundraiser that kicks off this fall. Expansions at the facility in Alta Vista will accommodate 139 new tenants — many of whom are veterans of the Canadian Forces — with access to apartment-style assistedliving rooms by January. “I am honoured and delighted to be a co-chair of this great project,” Scott-King said as she toured the centre. “It is such a wonderful project and I hope the whole city will help support it because it is not just for veterans but for senior citizens too.” See SCOTT, page 4

Canada’s bronze-medal winning women’s soccer team included six former Ottawa Fury players, including, pictured above, Diana Matheson, who scored the game winning goal at City of Coventry Stadium on Aug. 9.

Fury alumni help Canada capture bronze Eddie Rwema

EMC sports – Ottawa Fury Soccer Club owner John Pugh was a happy man watching six of his former players celebrate the Canadian women’s soccer team’s bronze-medal win on Thursday, Aug. 9. A last-second goal by Diana Matheson, who played for the Fury for three seasons, secured a 1-0 victory over France, giving Canada its first-ever medal in a traditional women’s team sport since 1936. “Seeing Diane Matheson

score that goal that won Canada a bronze medal was obviously a great delight,” said Pugh. In a game that was totally dominated by the French side, Canada had a single scoring opportunity — and made the most of it at City of Coventry Stadium. “It was clear the game was not going our way while playing the team that beat us 4-0 in the last World Cup. I think it was nice that someone like Diane put the ball in the back of the net, because she is a hardworking player,” said

Pugh. Matheson was one of the six Ottawa Fury bronze medalwinning alumni. Others on the team included Robyn Gale, Carmelina Moscato, MarieEve Nault, Kelly Parker and Rhian Wilkinson. Pugh said Matheson is a very technical player, very skillful, and a great person. “She was coming back from a very serious injury. She did not actually know she would make it to the Olympics,” said Pugh. So far, 15 former Fury players have played for the Cana-

dian national team, according to Pugh. “One of our objectives always has been to take the players that we are lucky to have and try give them the best opportunities we can,” he said. The women of Canada’s Olympic soccer team, who had been through an unprecedented emotional wringer last week, were celebrating, as they never have before. And no one wanted it to end.

Badminton player prepares for next Olympics Jennifer McIntosh

EMC sports – The Olympics may be over, but for a Nepean native and badminton player, his journey has just begun. Andrew D’Souza, a recent grad from St. Pius X High School, nabbed a gold medal in the Pan-American under-19 boys singles championships held in Edmonton on July 29. D’Souza, who has been playing the sport since he was 13 years old, said it’s a step towards competing in the 2016 Summer Games.

D’Souza bested fellow Canadian Benny Lin in straight sets (21-10, 21-19) in the gold medal match. He also picked up a bronze in the under-19 mixed doubles competition. He partnered with Vivian Kwok of Toronto. Now back in Ottawa, D’Souza has resumed working as a counsellor in a day camp for badminton players at the RA Centre. The centre – where D’Souza has trained since he starting playing – was where he developed a love of the competition. “I played at a local compe-

tition and won every match,” he said. “Then I played here and I got creamed. I started to see the skills that were needed.” He will be starting work on a kinesiology degree at the University of Ottawa this fall and is looking forward to training towards his dream of competing in the Olympics. “Badminton isn’t just about your strength physically, it’s about strategy,” D’Souza said, adding he trains six days a week. Aside from his goals as an athlete, D’Souza said he would like to be a sports trainer.

Riverside South Resident Raising Funds for D.I.F.D.

Zoning Amendment Proposal for 4699 Bank Street The Planning Committee will be reviewing an application for a zoning amendment proposal for 4699 Bank Street. The site is located on the east side of Bank Street and north of Analdea Drive in the Leitrim community. The applicant is applying to rezone the land to permit the development of a 400 square metre place of worship and 340 square metre community centre at the rear of the site.

Matheson scores game-winning goal in bronze medal win Continued from page 1

“It was like a dream out there,” said Matheson. “You see someone, you hug them, you have a moment; I think that happened about 35 times and then you go around again.” GOAL

The dramatic 92nd-minute goal came after the ball landed at the feet of Matheson, who kicked the ball into an open net, ending a half that had been dominated by the French. “I have no idea what happened,” said Matheson, whose goal — incredibly — came on Canada’s only shot on goal for the game. “I can’t remember it, I think the ball came down the left and I was in the right place at

the right time. “The ball was right there, the net was basically open, it definitely was in slow motion... it feels unreal right now.” The victory followed a heartbreaking 4-3 semifinal loss to the United States on Monday, Aug. 6. During the semfinal, Canadian captain Christine Sinclair scored a hat trick and gave Canada the lead on three different occasions, only to see the U.S. reply each time. “If we needed confirmation that Sinclair is one of the best if not the best player in the world, we certainly got it,” said Pugh. Pugh said scoring a hat trick against a team that most people will agree is the most powerful in the world “was quite amazing.” “She had a scarce number

of opportunities and she took them all. In addition, they were all excellent finishes in each case,” he said. The owner of the Fury said that what had happened with the Olympics is a perfect prelude to what he considers the main event – the 2015 Women World Cup, which will be hosted by Canada. Pugh thinks hosting that tournament will do a tremendous amount for women soccer. “There were close to four million people, sometimes watching the Canada-US game,” he said. People who have never watched a soccer game in their lives tuned-in to that game and got an enormous surprise,” said Pugh. With files from Star Wire Services.

Scott-King co-chairs capital campaign

Continued from page 1

FAMILY CAREGIVER LEAVE Our government has proposed an amendment to the Employment Standards Act that would allow an employee to take a leave of absence to care for a family member when they need it most. The Family Caregiver Leave would build on the existing Family Medical Leave and provide up to eight weeks of unpaid job leave for employees to provide care and support to a sick or injured family member. We’re also calling on the federal government to extend Employment Insurance to those who take advantage of the Family Caregiver Leave, just as they do when Ontarians take Family Medical Leave. This proposed legislation is part of our government’s commitment to ensuring that families across our province have the support they need when they need it most.

ONTARIO DRUG BENEFIT We’re improving Ontario’s drug benefit system so it’s fairer and so that we can better support an aging population through a new Seniors Strategy. Our strategy calls for expanding house calls, increasing access to home care, and providing improved coordination between hospitals, primary and community care. We are also committed to lowering the cost of the top 10 generic drugs to 20 per cent of the comparable brand product. This will generate an additional $55 million a year in savings — allowing us to increase the Ontario Disability Support Program and Ontario Works by one per cent each in the fall of this year.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP Please feel free to contact me at my community office if there are any provincial issues I can assist you with. My staff and I will do our best to help.

Scott-King was named “Canada’s Sweetheart” for her figure skating achievements in her teens and she is still an ambassador for the sport today at age 84. “My dad was a veteran from World War 1 and anything to do with veterans has always been near and dear to my heart. I just hope we will all pitch in and make it successful,” she said. Scott-King is still the only person to ever hold the European, North American, Canadian, world and Olympic figure skating titles at the same time. The Perley and Rideau health centre is already home to 250 veterans of the Second World War and 20 to 30 per cent of the new apartments will be offered to Canadian Forces senior veterans. 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. Both Scott-King and Hale are seniors and are well aware of the issues that are facing the age demographic today. Hale is recognized as a humanitarian and is one of Ottawa’s leading and most committed citizens, according to the

centre. “It is an honour and privilege to head up this very wonderful campaign. I think of the veterans and the seniors who are going to be able to move into this affordable assisted living accommodation,” said Hale. As the number of seniors continues to surge, Hale thinks there is going to be need for adequate accommodation for seniors. “We are trying to keep them in their homes as long as possible but there comes a time when they are going to need a little bit more help,” she said. Hale is committed to do all she can to make the campaign a success. “I will do anything I can to help. It is going to happen and I hope it is the beginning of many other similar projects in our community because the need is there,” said Hale. When completed, the seniors’ village 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. “It is fantastic and exciting to have these three great leaders leading this fundraising campaign,” said Greg Fougere, executive director of the Perley Rideau.

because of the drought they have been seeing less fresh food and vegetables. He said his organization was happy that people were donating fresh food. “It is important that people can donate their food especially this year when there has been drought,” said Eady. Quinn hopes to add at least 20 more plots next year. “This year I had 29 on four and a half acres,” he said.

Shepherds of Good Hope volunteers were on hand to help with potato harvesting. “It is a nice crop of potatoes but there is a lot fewer potatoes per plant than expected,” said Quinn. Besides meeting fellow residents with gardening interests, Quinn said the garden provides residents with an opportunity to get out into the sunshine and meet their neighbours.

EMC news – Even with the 400 people it serves at lunchtime, Shepherds of Good Hope did not have to spend any money to potatoes on Aug. 10, thanks to a Riverside South resident who donated them from his garden to the foundation. This past April, Michael Quinn, started a community garden on Earl of Armstrong Road, just east of Bowesville Road, to help himself and others who felt they didn’t really have enough space in their yards to grow food vegetables. Now, a couple of months later, Quinn said things have been going great at the gardens despite the season turning out to be a dry one. “We are definitely feeling the effects of the drought. The gardens are still doing well, but I am supplying a lot of water this year. I have had to have my pond dug larger to keep up with the demand. I couldn’t have picked a dryer year to start the garden,” he said. With 41 gardeners, Quinn added that it is amazing what the community garden site has transformed into in just a few months. “It has been a busy year but I am having fun. Most if not all gardeners have started getting some good fresh vegetables from their gardens. I

EMC sports - The thrill of victory and agony of defeat played out together within a matter of a few seconds for the Canadian men’s 4x100-metre relay team on Aug. 11 at the Olympic Stadium in London.

Ottawa’s Oluseyi Smith and teammates, Justyn Warner, Gavin Smellie, and Jared Connaughton had finished third at the London Games, catapulting themselves from near obscurity and onto the medal podium. It appeared as though the four men had won Canada its

19th medal of the 2012 London Games, crossing the line third behind powerhouses Jamaica and the United States, but the team was disqualified for a lane violation against Connaughton, who stepped on the line while he was passing the baton to anchor Justyn Warner.

The Canadians soon went from celebrating with flags draped around them, to being astonished and distraught, all either close to or in tears. “I don’t even remember what it felt like now, all I feel right now is disappointment,” said Smith, when asked what it felt like when they thought they had won the bronze. The 25-year-old former student at Fielding Drive Public School and Brookfield High School in south Ottawa, said that everybody was going into this with so much expectation, and some people didn’t think they could do it. “They were calling us to come in fifth or sixth, but we rallied against the best teams in the world and we figured we were on the podium. It’s like we let everyone down, said Smith. While the Jamaicans and Americans were battling it out for first as expected - Usain Bolt brought Jamaica home in a world-record time of 36.84 – Warner’s strong finishing kick moved Canada up and into third place, behind the U.S. Or so they had thought. Instead, after the disqualification, Trinidad and Tobago was elevated to the bronze medal position. “I hope that there’s something we can do about that because that sucks, that just sucks,” said Warner, referring to a protest Canada lodged to contest the decision. “To have a medal like that and just have it taken away, it sucks.” The Canadian team, started off by Brampton’s Gavin Smellie, left the track with a variety of emotions, including anger and sadness, but also believing themselves to be the third best in the world. “We beat everyone fair and square, we earned that medal,” said Warner. “If he had a pinky on the friggin’ line, it’s just ridiculous. I don’t know what happened, I just know that everyone has put in the work to get where we were, and it really sucks.”

Barrhaven Food Cupboard struggling to meet increased demand Jennifer McIntosh

in Barrhaven could be one of the reasons for the increase in the demand. “In previous years it was predominantly single family homes,� Lee said. “But now some people are renting out the older townhomes and those people may not have as much disposable income.� Lee – a longtime volunteer with the organization – blamed the economy as well. “For the first time I am seeing clients come back to us after a year of not needing our services,� he said. “Some people are just stretched too thin and if there’s a layoff or a contract ends, there is no cushion.�

Lee said in the last month, the food cupboard gave out $2,900 in gift certificates for fresh produce and other perishable items. Clients were also given a total of 4,000 kilograms of food. Increased demand when there is the opportunity for seasonal work has Lee worrying about the colder months to come. “Things could get even more difficult,� he said. Donations to the Barrhaven Food Cupboard can be made at Food Basics, Loblaws, Ross’ Your Independent, Sobeys and the UPS at 900 Greenbank Rd.

EMC news – A significant increase in the demand for assistance from the Barrhaven Food Cupboard could mean it will go bare, said long-time volunteer Ken Lee. In the time he has been with the volunteer-driven food assistance program, Lee said he has seen the demand in Barrhaven grow by “leaps and bounds.� The average number of calls for assistance last year was 64 families per month. May and June saw 86 calls, while July was a whopping

93. “Based on those figures we are seeing an average increase of 30 per cent over last year,� Lee said, adding that the organization has seen a modest increase in donations, but not enough to keep up with the demand. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder has made a plea for donations on her website and Ross’ Your Independent Grocer had initiated a matching program over the August long weekend, matching each non-perishable donation kilogram for kilogram.

Drought comes with a price for everyone


ear after year we are seeing less predictable weather. It’s costing the farmers dearly this year and the dry times will cost us all over the coming months and years. Adapting our actions to deal with climate change is a simpler task than adapting our lives to deal with weather that can damage our economy. The price we pay for fruits and vegetables will be the

first effect felt by consumers. If dry weather becomes the new normal, some produce may not be available at all or the season will be shorter. Because local corn and hay feeds cows but is in short supply, farmers across much of Canada and the central United States will likely be forced to sell off beef cattle. There could be a glut and prices might drop in the short term which could be followed by a spike.

Unpredictable weather may mean unpredictable beef prices. Beyond the food on our tables, there will be other, less obvious effects if dry, hot weather becomes the norm. At Pinto Valley Ranch in Fitzroy Harbour, the owners plan to sell nearly half their horses because feeding them hay at current prices isn’t possible. That will mean reduced opportunities for Ottawa kids to try riding,

which in turn will almost certainly mean fewer riders for the equestrian industry in the future. If watering bans become the new normal, backyard gardens and community allotment gardens won’t be able to provide as much food for city folk. That in turn increases demand for imported foods. If we’re forced to stop watering lawns, they will die and homeowners will have to invest in drought resistant

plants or pave the front yard. Golf courses are suffering and the cost of installing irrigation systems could be the difference between staying in business or shutting down for some course owners. The sports fields used by children and adults are in rough shape because of the dry weather. When the quality of play drops far enough, we’ll need to add the cost of resodding fields to the property tax bill. All those costs for con-

sumers pale in comparison with the trouble ahead for farmers. Some plants do well in wet weather while others can survive dry times, but what can farmers plant when the weather is completely unpredictable? If our summers are going to be extreme – dry, wet, hot or cold – we will all pay dearly. It makes investment in climate science seem like a good deal.


Protecting our most precious commodity – sleep BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse We recently had one of those Sunday afternoons where our newborn screamed as only a colicky baby can for 15 minutes. In the same quarter of an hour, my six and seven-year-old boys started wrestling to the death on their bedroom floor, the cat vomited at my feet from the humidity, just as Ottawa received its first significant rainfall in over a month and water started pouring through the living room ceiling. The aftermath was not pretty. No resilience, no problem-solving, no understanding or empathy for the poor cat. To put it simply, we all freaked out. Much of this – or at least our reactions to it – could have been prevented by a good night’s sleep the night before. Unfortunately, with a two-week-old baby on hand, my husband and I had spent the better part of midnight to 5 a.m. rocking or feeding or singing to our crying baby. We were exhausted. I decided that day that I had to take matters in hand. There would be no more five- hour overnight stretches of screaming baby. I vowed that

from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m., I would not leave my bed, and the baby would be by my side, and she would learn to respect the precious commodity of sleep in our household. Who says you can’t sleep train a newborn? At the risk of jinxing a good thing, my method has worked. Little Darling seems to sense that it’s time for bed as soon as the TV goes off, the lullabies go on, the lights go down and we put our jammies on before the last feed of the day. Granted she tends to fall asleep in my arms, me propped upright for most of the night on a collection of cushions and pillows. But you know what? We’re sleeping. We’re sleeping so well, in fact, that I often wake up in a panic because five or six hours have gone by without interruption. I check to make sure Little Darling is still breathing – she is —and then proceed to wake her for a feed. At 6 a.m. I get up, make coffee and open the curtains before waking Little Darling for the day. She doesn’t have an opportunity to cry. She wakes up slowly as I talk to her, change her, tickle her toes and take her to the daytime feeding station in the living room. The boys generally help out with the final part of the daytime announcement by banging out the White Stripes on piano or guitar and then wrestling to the death on the living room floor. It’s only been a week. And you know babies have a tendency to alter their routines just as you get used to things. At the same time, a week is a third of Little Darling’s life. And frankly, at this stage of the game, I’ll celebrate whatever sleep I can get.

Village offers a ‘Taste of Manotick’

Business booming at medical centre Brier Dodge

EMC news – Business is booming at Findlay Creek Medical Centre. More than 7,500 patients have registered with family doctors at the privately-owned clinic since it opened last February. Since then, the clinic has expanded its services, adding an audiologist and a psychologist to its staff, with plans to hire an obstetrician-gynecologist in the fall. The clinic is still accepting new patients, with the capacity to bring in up to 20,000 patients, depending on doctors’ preferences. Everyone who has applied for a family doctor at Findlay Creek has been able to register with one of the doctors. “We’re still sending out waves of acceptance letters,” said assistant director Alejandro Almendrades. He said the clinic is getting calls from all over the city – and even outside the city limits – with requests for family doctors. Findlay Creek was chosen as the location for the medical centre because it had one of the largest demands in the city, along with the Orléans/ Cumberland and Stittsville/ Carp areas. While the clinic does not accept walk-ins, it has urgent-

They also have a day room for surgeries that don’t require anesthesia, and a lab for registered patients. “Being a family clinic, that means not having to wait,” Almendrades said. “It has that walk-in quality.”

It also has flexible hours, operating with several evenings a week and weekend appointments available. When the clinic first opened, it was flooded with online registrations and the website couldn’t handle the traffic. It has since switched to pa-

EMC news – Manotick businesses will offer a sample of the village this weekend with the third-annual Taste of Manotick on Saturday, Aug. 18. From 4 to 9 p.m., Manotick Main Street will close to traffic while opening up a world of flavours, samples and shopping opportunities for visitors. Buskers will juggle between the stalls and patios, and for the first time since the event began in 2010, local bands including the Paper Boys and Tequila will entertain at either end of the festival. “That’s an addition that we’re very excited about,” said Manotick Business Improvement Area director Donna Cooper. The road will be closed between Bridge Street and Currier Street, and businesses from across the village will set up booths to showcase their wares, offer samples and talk to new customers. Restaurants will offer special deals, although their samples will not be free this year in an effort to tackle long lines. Manotick Village Butcher owner James Watt has participated in the event since the first year, and said it’s a great way

for people to discover all that Manotick has to offer. “It brings a lot of people into Manotick, which is very, very good. People don’t realize what all is in Manotick,” he said. As a local resident, he said it’s surprisingly easy to shop locally. “When I need stuff I stay in town. Shopping at small businesses, you get really good customer service that you’re not going to find at box stores.” Since the butcher shop is not technically a restaurant, it will be barbecuing a number of free samples like sausages, sliders and other items, all made using local meat. Cooper said the event is meant to bring residents and visitors out for a “positive experience” that promotes the village core and creates return shoppers. The idea was born in 2009 when Manotick Main was closed for construction while the water main and sewers were being installed. “The main street was closed and we looked at it as a real opportunity to close the street to have a party. We have a traditional main street, so let’s use it,” Cooper said. The following year, the BIA held its first Taste of Manotick with enormous success.

Cycling the capital City looks to connect its biking routes Ottawa’s new cycling ‘links’ are making it a leader in connecting cycling facilities Laura Mueller

EMC news - By the end of this month, there should be a ramp allowing people to wheel their bike up beside the stairs to get up the hill to cross Hartwell Locks. It’s a small, simple addition, and although it has taken eight years to make it happen, it will allow thousands of cyclists to use the locks to cross the Rideau Canal, particularly during the National Capital Commission’s Sunday Bike Days. It’s just one of thousands of small projects completed each year to tweak conditions to make life easier for cyclists in Ottawa, says Robin Bennett, the city’s project manager of cycling programs. Ottawa’s extensive network of pathways and decent complement of painted bicycle lanes allow the city to boast that it is one of the most bikefriendly cities in the country. But if the city wants to hit its target of 12,000 trips taken by bike in 2021 (there were 4,500 in 2001), it needs to link those cycling routes together. Things like the new “bike box” at the north end of Bay Street at Wellington Street are the type of thing that re-

Laura Mueller

Innovative cycling fixes like this new ‘bike box’ at Bay Street and Wellington Street are helping put Ottawa out front of other Ontario municipalities when it comes to bicycle infrastructure. ally work to connect cycling routes, said Colin Simpson, a transportation planner at the city and project manager of the Laurier segregated bicycle lane. “It’s a great addition because it supports an important feeder line,” he said. A left turn at busy Wellington Street is the most intimidating part of cycling from Ottawa’s downtown, including the east-west Laurier segregated lane to the Ottawa River pathway and the Portage Bridge to Gatineau. Adding a bike box there to give cyclists the priority to turn left before cars is a way to make all the rest of the city

and NCC pathways and lanes more accessible and easier to use, Simpson said. Segregated lanes are the way of the future, participants heard at the Velo-City bicycle conference in Vancouver this June. They are what make the difference between improving conditions for people who already cycle, and getting new people on the roads, said Simpson, who attended the conference. “We hear from people who are taking up cycling because of this lane,” said Alex deVries, vice president of the local advocacy group, Citizens for Safe Cycling.

Unlike segregated lanes, bike boxes don’t need a trial period or “pilot project,” – they can just be done right away. That’s something Simpson wants to see more of. “We need to go further and do it faster,” he said. CYCLING LEADER

With mysterious and novel things like bike boxes popping up in Ottawa, the city is fast becoming recognized as a leader in cycling infrastructure. Buffered bike lanes on Bay Street are another Ottawa first on Simpson’s list. He wants to make the painted lines of an existing northbound bicycle

lane on Bay Street wider by painting a wider diagonal strip to the left of the bike lane, causing cars to leave more buffer room for cyclists. Another big first will be a grade-separated bicycle track along Churchill Avenue between Byron and Carling. When that road is reconstructed next year, it will have a raised track between the sidewalk and vehicle lanes that will give cyclists a feeling of safety similar to riding on the sidewalk. Being among the first in the province to construct these types of cycling facilities is giving Ottawa the edge in helping plan the provincial rules for cycling infrastructure. The upcoming bike facility guidelines, referred to as Book 18, will be completed by the end of the year, thanks in large part to the efforts of city transportation planner Robert Grimwood. “It puts us in a position to provide input on implementation … It gives us a chance to be leaders,” Grimwood said. “Ottawa has very clearly been the most engaged municipality.” There are 13 municipalities participating in drafting Book 18, which for the first time will include guidelines for how to build bicycle lanes of different styles, bike signals, “crossrides” (intersection crosswalks that cyclists are allowed to bike though) and all manner of infrastructure that could be built for bikes. Book 18 won’t provide hard and fast rules, but Grimwood said the Ontario Traffic Manual, which the document will become part of, is considered the “Bible” of infrastructure planning. “It will be used,” he said.

Battle lines drawn over Ottawa’s bicycle lanes laura mueller

EMC news - Not unlike neighbourhoods rallying against tall buildings, there are groups who say they like bike lanes – just not here. While cyclists can argue that small changes and a few painted lines can make all the difference in getting new cyclists on the road, some counter that maybe that’s not the best idea, and maybe the lanes aren’t making them any safer. Or, perhaps the benefits to a few cyclists don’t outweigh the frustration bicycle lanes might cause for others, such as residents, businesses or motorists. Two such groups are BBRAGFAR (Bay/Bronson

Residents Action Group for Fair Access to the Road) and the Responsible Cycling Coalition (RCC). Both make it their main business to oppose the city’s two-year pilot project testing out a curb-separated bicycle lane on Laurier Avenue West. While both groups are similar in size (around five to eight people) and in their ability to garner media attention, they oppose the bike lane for very different reasons. PARKING

For some residents of Laurier Avenue West, seeing two lines of curbs bisecting the street when they look out their windows is hard to swallow. At the west end of the

street, between Lyon and Bronson, there used to be 69 parking spaces. Now there are none. The city says that section of Centretown now has more parking than before (124 spaces replaced 122), despite the removal of spaces on Laurier, because new street parking was created on adjacent streets. But that’s no comfort for many Laurier residents, who number around 2,000 in several buildings. Their concern is represented by the cumbersomely named BBRAGFAR, a small group that says there are not enough cyclists using the bike lane in their section of the street to warrant leaving the curbs up for another year of

the pilot project. “A service for which we pay taxes was taken away from us for the sake of a few cyclists,” said Norm King, one of BBRAGFAR’s five members. They want the city to keep the segregated lane farther east, but convert it into a “sharrow,” a painted shared car and bike lane, and allow parking over the sharrow markings when it’s not rush hour (Toronto is piloting that idea on College Street). There’s less traffic and therefore less risk of injury to cyclists on those blocks, so there is no need for a segregated lane – parking would be more beneficial, King says. BBRAGFAR also bemoans the lack of consultation before

the lanes were put in. But King admits he did know about the handful of public meetings he could have attended to express his opinion – but he thinks the city had a responsibility to come meet directly with Laurier residents, and no one did. Seeing snow removed from the bike lanes at the same time as the rest of the street – often before sidewalks are cleared – only serves to add to their frustration, King says. There are many elderly or disabled folks residing in the area, and the alternate loading and drop off zones don’t serve them as well as the parking spaces they grew accustomed to enjoying. See BIKE, page 12

Cycling snafus

Cutting across 400-series highway on-ramps to continue straight on a road or bike lane is a daunting risk for cyclists.

Cycling lanes that disappear or appear out of nowhere, like this one in the middle of O’Connor Street, create collision potential.

Sharrow markings in lanes that aren’t wide enough for both bikes and cars, like at Laurier and Elgin, create risk.

Debris or crumbling asphalt in a bike lane or near the curb can force cyclists into the traffic lane For more or to report an issue:

Replacing city’s ‘lost generation’ of cyclists Educating future cyclists – and drivers – only one piece of puzzle Emma Jackson

EMC news – Making up for a “lost generation” of adult cyclists by encouraging kids to get on bikes is an intricate web without one silver-bullet solution, advocates say. While some bemoan the lack of cycling education in the Ontario school system, others argue that it’s more complicated than teaching kids to signal before they turn. “Putting someone through an education program doesn’t mean they’ll ride to school tomorrow,” said Jamie Stuckless, a school travel planning facilitator with Green Communities Canada. Informal cycling experience on the roads with their parents complements the formal education kids might get through something like a bike-safety rodeo, Stuckless said. Stuckless works with 17 Ottawa elementary and high schools to come up with plans to get students to choose more active forms of transportation, but it’s an uphill battle, she said. “Many people who are parents now weren’t cyclists growing up,” she said. If kids can’t ride alongside their parents when they are growing up, they probably won’t bother getting on a bike. By the time those kids become adults, they will be even more reticent to cycle – and far less experienced or confident when they do. Hans Moor, president of Citizens for Safe Cycling,

said cycling education should be just as common as swimming lessons for kids. He grew up in the Netherlands, where lessons in school were a given. That attitude is slowly creeping into North America, with a push for a U.K.-style “Bikeability” program in British Columbia being led by a group called Right to Bike. “It’s one of those life skills that you really need to have,” Moor said. Moor disagrees with the notion of a lost generation of cyclists. He thinks that most people have a bike in their garage or shed – they just aren’t comfortable riding it. For Orleans Ward Coun. Bob Monette, cycling education is the most important thing. He has reservations about the Laurier segregated bicycle lane due to the impact he says he has seen on business and residents. If children are taught the rules of the road on a bike at a young age, we could avoid a lot of the drivercyclist conflict that seems to pervade Ottawa now, Monette said. Avid cycling commuter Kevin O’Donnell, who ran as the Green Party candidate for Ottawa Centre in the last provincial election, says there is something intangible in the milestone of learning to ride a bike that parents can build on to encourage their kids to become cyclists for life. And instead of parents setting the example, O’Donnell hopes it can also work the other way around. “A kid can convert a family to biking,” he said. But he said it’s also about

infrastructure and safety. If kids don’t feel safe, and if their parents worry about their safety, they won’t be biking to school. But it’s also important to make it fun, Stuckless said. More kids will cycle when it’s seen as an enjoyable activity for all ages, not to mention a convenient travel option. Avery Burdett, a vehicular cycling advocate with a small local group called Responsible Cycling Coalition, says it’s critical that kids follow their parents’ lead. Building a new generation of cyclists is possible, Burdett said, with parents’ on board and a proper suite of cycling education in schools for children starting at a young age and continuing through to educating drivers on sharing the road with cyclists. “It would take a lot of time, effort and money,” he said, “but maybe, in the long term, it’s possible.

Designated bike lanes pit cyclists against cyclists ... and drivers Continued from page 10

It’s difficult for people with mobility concerns to cross over the barriers in the middle of the street, King added. “The use of bicycles isn’t the issue,” King said. “We just don’t want to have the front of our buildings blockaded for no reason.” “Our chair has a bike,” King adds, referring to Janine Hutt, the head of BBRAGFAR. VEHICULAR CYCLISTS

For Kanata resident Avery Burdett, there’s a big risk in encouraging inexperienced cyclists to get on the road by offering them a false sense of security in a bike lane – a mirage that’s heightened on Laurier because of the curb separating cyclists from vehicles. Burdett is a founding member of the RCC, and for him, driving (and he is careful to use that word) a bicycle is a simple and time-tested process – it’s just not one that most people bother to educate themselves about. And it’s not a skill that most people are encouraged to learn, he says. He’s what’s referred to as a vehicular cyclist, and following the principles set out by John Forester in Effective

Cycling in 1976, he treats his bike like a car on the road. It’s a theory based on research that shows being a skilled cyclist is the best way to prevent injury or death, Burdett says. He rides with confidence because he knows how to, Burdett says. He has taken the nationally-syndicated Can-Bike training course and he has spent years riding the roads with other cyclists in the Ottawa Bicycle Club. That’s what he thinks everyone else should do before hitting the road. He says the focus on building infrastructure for bicycles is purely political: “They want to get people out of cars – and it’s not going to work … It has to be recognized that skills will reduce the risk of people getting injured. We’re the thorn in the side of their plans.” Still, Burdett wouldn’t be upset to see more cyclists on the road – as long as they are trained to the exacting standards he holds himself to. “No one who is a committed cyclist would want to discourage people from getting on a bike,” he said. He says improvements to roads and intersections could make it easier for people to cycle – but those improvements would also benefit all road users and motorists, he added.

Cyclists should learn how to ‘drive’ their bicycles before hitting the road, according to Avery Burdett, a founding member of the Responsible Cycling Coalition. ADVOCACY

Cycling advocacy in Ottawa seemed to go through a shift starting about four years ago. That’s when Hans Moor

took over as president of Citizens for Safe Cycling (CfSC), and it’s also around the time when the group handed over Can-Bike training courses to be run by the city.

“It’s not the same group as it was,” said Burdett, who was once involved with CfSC. “It’s basically an environmental group now.” Moor, who moved to Ottawa from Holland in 1998,

says his first decade or so in Ottawa gave him the impression that the people who cycle here are mainly focused on an athletic pursuit. But after he took over the advocacy group, he noticed that there were many cyclists in Ottawa who shared his mindset: that riding a bike is simply an efficient, healthy and safe way to get around. “Our message is a bit more moderate than in the past – it appeals to more people,” Moor said. Moor likens the range of cycling groups to the different types of motorists. That includes everyone from regular commuters to Formula One racecar drivers, he says. “Elite” cycling groups like RCC represent the cycling equivalent of Formula One drivers. CfSC leans more to the average commuter. CfSC doesn’t disagree with everything other groups are saying (Moor also thinks that more money could be spent on cycling education), but he’s reluctant to get into debates with groups that hold an opposing view. In the end, Moor says his impression is that not many decision makers listen to the anti-bike lane or elite vehicular cycling groups. “It doesn’t have much of an impact on where cycling is going in Ottawa.”

These wingless insects are capable of jumping long distances. While cat and dog fleas prefer to feast on animal blood, they will turn to a human host if needed. The life-cycle of a flea has four stages: Eggs, which fall from the host into the environment Larvae, which live off of the fallen fecal matter of adult fleas found in carpets and in lawns. Pupae, which is the cocoon. They do not emerge until a host is detected (via warmth /vibration)

Adults, which feast on blood. If you do have a flea-infestation, it is important to treat the pet’s environment as well, to eliminate flea eggs and larvae. There are many over-the-counter products that help solve flea problems such as flea sprays (both for the pet and environment), shampoos, or collars. While the costs may be lower for over-the-counter products ($5 to $30), they often need to be reapplied to solve a flea infestation.

It is important to read all of the instructions carefully before using any flea-control product. Follow all the instructions. Never use flea productions designed for dogs on cats, and vice versa. When in doubt, contact your veterinarian.

Prescription-only solutions such as topical treatments (Advantage, Revolution) or pills (Program, Sentinel) are more expensive and require a vet visit for a prescription. They are usually dispensed in a six-month package, to be applied monthly for the flea season.

Use a flea comb several times a week on all pets.

They are safer, easier and more effective than over-the-counter products. These products often have additional benefits, such as heart-worm protection and tick,

Fleas, an annual external parasite, are mostly harmless. The biggest problem caused by fleas is itching. However, some pets or people may be allergic to flea saliva, which causes flea allergy dermatitis (super-itchy spots with hair-loss); young, sick or elderly pets can become anemic from too much blood loss.

Annual urban bicycle tour promises a tasty ride Just Food event takes participants to seven community gardens in the city Michelle Nash

EMC news - A downtown bike tour will give participants a chance to stop and eat the cherries. The 2012 Urban Agriculture Bike Tour on Aug. 29 is organized through Just Food. The tour begins downtown and will take cyclists through Sandy Hill, the Glebe, Old Ottawa South, Old Ottawa East and over the Rideau River to Alta Vista for a total of a 12kilometre bike ride. The tour is being held to inform participants the importance of having a sustainable food system in their city. Tyler Levitan organized this year’s event and invited everyone to join the ride. “If people are interested in community gardens, and the sustainable food movement in the city, and want to meet like-minded people to learn some gardening skills and also have a really good time, they should come out,” Levitan said “It is also just a nice time to spend the afternoon on your bike.” The ride is intended to

promote community gardens, Levitan said, so individuals who wish to learn more about how a community garden is built are encouraged to come out. This is the fifth year Just Food has organized this bike tour, but it’s the first time the tour will include a stop at a home owner’s garden, too. Old Ottawa East resident Maryna Nowosielski has a garden unlike any other. A mix of fruit trees, roses, green beans and strawberries, Nowosielski has planted it all together. “You can mix and match. It is good when you grow your beans in with the flowers. It contributes to proper growing and looks really pretty too,” Nowosielski said. Nowosielski’s garden will be a stop on Levitan tour. A resident of the Glengarry Road for 35 years, Nowosielski continually changes what her garden looks like and grows every year and she has offered the same advice to new gardeners who will stop by. “Just do what ever you like, because you will be changing it anyway. But learn what


Just Food bicycle tour organizer Tyler Levitan stands in the BUGS community garden, located at the Glebe Memorial Park, which is one of the gardens the tour will visit on Aug. 29 likes to grow where. After that, it doesn’t matter,” she said. Levitan said he wanted to feature Nowosielski’s garden because it truly has everything and it’ss a sight to see. Over a four-hour period,

the tour will visit seven community gardens, including the stop at Nowosielski’s garden. Families are encouraged to come out, and Levitan said. No one has to cycle the entire 12 kilometres if they do not wish to.

“Ask questions about anything,” Levitan said. “That is the point. Ask anything about what makes gardening unique or how to garden while on the tour.” There will be free, locally grown snacks available during

the ride. The tour costs a suggested donation of $5 to participate, which will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank. More information about the event is available at www.

Pop-up park encourages sustainable living Park made up of tire byproducts

Three Customer Friendly Programs from Hydro Ottawa

Michelle Nash

EMC news - An ecofriendly organization wants people in Ottawa to learn all about where used tires go. The group plans to create a mini-park in two spaces of a parking lot in the Byward Market near the intersection of Dalhousie and George streets on Aug. 19, with a bench sitting on a path surrounded by flowers and mulch – all made out of recycled rubber. Ontario Tire Stewardship Andrew Horsman said this park is his organization’s chance to showcase what happens to a recycled tire. The executive director said he wants the city of Ottawa to learn about the products which will be featured at the park, aiming to have the municipality begin to use eco-friendly products such as used rubber when building parks, curbs or play areas in the city. “The Pop-up Park gives people the idea of what real world use can be of their old tires,” Horsman said. “What we are trying to do with this space is to inform people of where their scrap tires go, they don’t get burned - they get turned into sustainable products.” The Ontario Tire Stewardship is a non-profit organization responsible for developing and applying the use of Ontario’s used tire program and is funded by industry organizations.

A Unique, Affordable Shopping Experience. Total Home Consignment offers a unique shopping experience unlike that of your run-of-the-mill furniture store. The furniture consignment store has the layout of a furniture store with 8,000 sq. ft. of spacious floor space, combined with the low prices and unique finds of a consignment store. “They love the concept and they didn’t realize there was anything like us out there,” says Richard Abrams, who owns the store with his wife Barb, of the reactions of his customers. “When they’re coming in here they’re not going to find the same old same old from furniture store to furniture store. It’s a totally different look and everything’s unique. It’s ‘one onlys’ and things that you can’t find other places.” Total Home Consignment is a great place to find unique gifts for friends and family. The furniture and home accessories are sourced from people looking to down size, estate sales, business closings, bankruptcies, and inventory liquidations. The store also gets model home furnishings from seven of Ottawa’s finest home builders. There’s no better time than now to come into the store as they’ve received truck loads of model furniture from Minto. Abrams says the store has a high standard of what furniture they will accept, which means it can be sold as is. For those on a budget,

Total Home Consignment offers sofas, bedroom sets, kitchen sets, dining room sets, patio sets, coffee and end tables, wall units, rugs, and even exercise equipment for great prices. Abrams explains that when a used product comes into the store it starts at 50 to 60 per cent of the price of what the equivalent product would sell for new. Every 15 days the price is dropped 10 per cent until the item is sold. “When the item first comes in, it’s a great deal but if you’re patient and you’re lucky more than anything else you can get an even better deal,” says Abrams. However, he cautions that this approach can result in disappointment when a piece of furniture is snapped up by another savvy customer. At Total Home Consignment you can find antiques and collectables but also brand new furniture. As Abrams put it, “there are treasures here to be found.” Total Home Consignment is located at 1860 Bank St, Uniit 4 near the corner of Bank St. and Walkley Rd. behind the Beer Store.

Ice box brought wonders EMC lifestyle - If it hadn’t been for the ice house, and the Barnett ice box grandfather bought, we would not have had a way to keep food from spoiling. But the ice house served another purpose as well, even though we kids were forbidden to use it for anything other than to store ice from the Bonnechere River. It was a retreat on a hot day, but we had to sneak in and sneak out. When the winter was at its coldest, and the river had frozen solid, father would cut huge blocks of ice, pile them on the flat bottom sleigh, and haul the load to the ice house. He would be at the job for days: drilling, sawing, and stacking the blocks in the ice house in neat rows. Once he had enough that he thought we could survive until the next year, he made many trips to the saw mill for sawdust. Every square inch of ice was covered with the sawdust to protect it from the little bit of summer warmth that penetrated the wood walls. It was usually Audrey or Everett who were sent for a new block of ice. The ice house was pitchblack inside, and so they

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories worked by feel rather than by seeing what they were doing. When the house was built, a big wood slip lock was made to keep the door secure, and which could be used to open and close the door from either inside or out. That was a great comfort to me, as I was always terrified of being locked inside some place and not being able to get out. That door was supposed to be opened only when a block of ice was being taken out. But that didn’t mean that was always the case. Although I was much too timid to do this on my own, I knew that my brothers would often slip into the ice house and spread out on the top blocks to cool off on a blistering hot summer day. They would wait until father was in a field, and mother was busy in the kitchen, and then they would sneak open the big wood slip lock and put as much flesh as they

could. They had to be very careful to rid themselves of any sawdust when they emerged, however. Mother made big jugs of iced tea, and Audrey would be sent for shards of ice, which would be washed thoroughly in a clean bowl, and then dropped into the tea. For reasons which escaped me at the time, ice for the cold drink was never taken from the ice box. But when grandfather saw the many hardships mother had to endure when she married a back-woods farmer after living so long in a big city, he bought a brand new wood ice box in Renfrew, and as well as keeping our food fresh, it served as a nice piece of furniture for the kitchen. It sat kitty-corner and mother always had a potted plant on the top of it, which at the time, I thought brought a touch of elegance to the kitchen.

Since I was the youngest of five, I was given jobs mother thought I was capable of doing. One was emptying the melted ice water from under the ice box. It dripped into a large white porcelain basin and I was always checking it because it was sure to spill it on the kitchen floor. So several times a day, I got down on my belly, and stuck my hand in the basin to see if it was ready to be emptied. In the winter time, the water was poured into the reservoir on the end of the Findlay Oval. Anything we could do to cut down on dragging water from the pump out in the yard when the snow was knee deep, we did it. But in the summer, the water was poured on the garden, or on mother’s flower beds. It was no small blessing that I never really appreciated back then; but we had the river, and so we had ice. We had an ice house to store it in, and so were always able to keep our perishables fresh, we had a grandfather who had enough money to buy us an ice box. We were poor, but in many ways we were blessed.

Making Greek bread is easy with a breadmaker


ne of Jeff’s aunts gave me this recipe for Greekstyle bread made in the bread machine. I tried it one day when we were having a light summer supper, and we thoroughly enjoyed the flavour combination of feta cheese, black olives and oregano. The bread is moist and keeps well for a couple of days. We didn’t quite finish the first loaf however before the last couple of slices were starting to get a bit dry. I had cooked a turkey a couple of days before and was making hot turkey sandwiches for supper. I decided to use the last of the Greek bread as the bottom layer for the sandwich since the turkey gravy would help to moisten it. The distinctive flavour of the bread transformed the hot turkey sandwiches into an entirely new and tasty dish. It was so good that I expect I’ll be making this recipe whenever I have left-

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff over turkey. This bread is also great for sandwiches. I used it one day for tuna sandwiches, and, like the turkey sandwich, they had an entirely different flavour. The amount given here makes a small loaf, about one pound. The amounts shown in brackets make a larger loaf. Jeff’s aunt recommended using a sweet bread setting on the breadmaker. I’ve also baked this using the dry milk setting when I substituted skim milk powder and water for the milk. The bread turned out fine both ways. You can leave out the black olives, but the bread will be just a bit drier.


• 2/3 cup milk (1 cup) •1 Tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil (2 Tbsp.) •1/2 tsp. salt (1 tsp. salt) •2 cups flour (3 cups) •1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2/3 cup) • 3 Tbsp. black olives, pitted and sliced (1/4 cup) • 2 tsp. sugar (2 tsp.) • 1 tsp. oregano (1 1/2 tsp.) • 1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast (1 1/2 tsp.) Place all ingredients in the bread machine in the order given and follow your machine’s directions. As soon as the bread is done, turn out on a rack to cool before cutting.

Improving the Integrity of our Immigration System Since the Conservative government came into power in 2006, a key priority has been to improve Canada’s immigration policies to promote legitimate immigration while reducing the abusers of our generous system. I am proud to say that, in the past 6 years, we have made several positive steps forward, especially when it comes to combating fraud. Prior to 2011, the regulation of immigration consultants was not consistent, and there were widespread complaints about some advisors duping clients and stealing their money. To address this issue, our Conservative government has worked hard to pass legislation requiring that immigration consultants be held accountable to the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council. This, along with a global advertising campaign, has greatly reduced the number of people falling victim to crooked consultants. Marriages of convenience have been another threat to the integrity of our immigration system. While some people are duped into marriage fraud, others intend to commit fraud for malicious purposes. To help prevent this in the future, our Conservative government has implemented a restriction on sponsored spouses and partners. Now, they must wait five years from the date they became permanent residents before they can sponsor a new spouse or partner. There are also plans to implement a conditional permanent residence for sponsored spouses and partners, requiring that they live with their sponsor for at least two years or risk losing their status. More recently, the Conservative government has introduced legislation to expedite the removal of foreign criminals from Canada and to enhance the safety and security of all Canadians by making it more difficult for these people to enter the country in the first place. These criminals will have fewer options to appeal and this ensures that they cannot endlessly abuse our system.

Our authentic Lebanese style hummus is made fresh in our kitchen with plump chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, a touch of salt – and nothing else, no artificial flavours or colours. Enjoy the light and airy texture you can only get from freshly prepared in delicious flavours like Caramelized Onion, Roasted Red Pepper, Roasted Pine Nut, and Roasted Garlic.

Finally, we strengthened the value of Canadian citizenship. The Conservative government introduced a first generation limitation to hereditary citizenship, so that citizenship can only be passed on to one generation born outside Canada. This ensures that all citizens of this nation have a true connection to our country. We added the requirement that all applicants demonstrate an adequate knowledge of English or French, as well as an understanding of Canadian values. Citizenship and Immigration Canada is also investigating nearly 7,300 people for fraudulently obtaining their citizenship, revoking their status on a scale like never before. I will continue to fight in Parliament for the rights of legitimate immigrants and new Canadians. We live in the greatest country in the world, and it is important to all Canadians that we continue to work on improving the integrity of our immigration system. Pierre Poilievre MP, Nepean-Carleton

EMC news – While the real SuperEx rides its logistical rollercoaster to secure a new home, World’s Finest Shows is bringing a little magic to the nearby Rideau Carleton Raceway this month. Beginning Thursday, Aug. 16, the raceway’s grassy grounds will be transformed into a wonderland of rides, games and shows to keep the whole family entertained over two weekends until Sunday, Aug. 26. The event is sponsored by the Central Canada Exhibition Association, which ran SuperEx at Lansdowne Park for more than 120 years until 2010, after which it was cancelled due to the historic site’s redevelopment. SuperEx’s midway provider, World’s Finest Shows, created last year’s first Midway Magic event to tide families over while SuperEx is on hold. It was hosted at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium in the city’s east end. Joe Pavia, Ottawa representative for World’s Finest Shows, said this year the baseball team didn’t have its lease finalized with the city before World’s Finest Shows needed to decide on a venue, so they went with the raceway. “When we had to make decisions it just wasn’t timely,” he said. While the Rideau Carleton Raceway is not as central as the baseball stadium, Pavia said the venue has some no-

And if you’re bringing a family it’s nice to not be on pavement,” he said. He added that the raceway is better equipped with services like water and power. While World’s Finest Shows knew its event was magical last year, this year the organizers have made it more official with a roster of magicians, illusionists and hypnotists taking the stage over the two-weekend fair. Popular hypnotist Fernandez is the star, and will offer his “hypnotic comedy” at 4 and 8 p.m. each day on weekends. Ottawa magician Ian Quick will also offer two shows each day on the weekend, which are “filled with laughs, thrills and jaw-dropping effects,” ac-

cording to the Midway Magic press release. But it’s Quick’s understudy, 14-year-old Gabe Roberge, that visitors should watch for. The young Sandy Hill magician will perform twice a day on weekends at the biggest gig of his short career. “I’ve never been asked to do this many shows for one person, so I’m very excited about that,” said Roberge, who will begin Canterbury High School’s drama program this September. Since he was about four years old, Roberge has lived and breathed magic. His small bedroom is crammed with hundreds of gags, props and books that have made him the magician he is today. His decks of cards alone occupy a four-drawer desktop organizer, sorted into dozens of rows of red and blue decks just waiting to fascinate his next audience. “Magic is everything,” he said. “I spend 24/7 thinking about it, working on it, practicing, trying to find new stuff to add to my show.” His Midway Magic shows will offer family-oriented magic and comedy, where he’ll invite kids on stage to participate in his tricks. He’ll make a two-litre bottle of pop appear out of nowhere, and pull a roll of toilet paper out of his mouth to get people laughing. “That’s probably the hardest thing for me...just getting people laughing, to all join in and have a good time,” he said. Nixing the traditional cape, top hat and wand for a more casually colourful attire, Roberge considers himself a “modern magician” who combines comedy with fresh magic that will leave his audience awestruck. “I try to keep it away from pulling a rabbit out of a hat and pulling a quarter from a kid’s ear. I try to keep it fresh so people are always interested in what’s happening next,” he said. Roberge will perform twice every Saturday and Sunday during the fair, which runs Thursday, Aug. 16 to Sunday, Aug. 19 and Thursday, Aug. 23 to Sunday, Aug. 26.

Last minute options added to Manotick water main study

EMC news – A last minute change to Manotick’s proposed water main study could spell disaster for the village, said Klaus Beltzner, president of the Manotick Village Community Association. Two new alignment options have been added to the project’s environmental assessment, one of which travels along Spratt Road from Earl Armstrong Road to Mitch Owens Road, with sub-options breaking off at Bridge Street. If the city moves ahead with the Spratt Road route it would open the door to expansion of the village boundary and approval of Trinity Development Group’s longstanding plan to build a box store plaza in that area, said Beltzner. “The provincial policy statement that says if you have services you need to use them. So that will lead to the acceptance of the village boundary going across the river and then they can build their shopping plaza,” Beltzner said. Consultant group Morrison Hershfield Ltd is currently conducting the environmental assessment for a water main that would provide more access to the central water system

through Manotick’s core and in the village’s Minto development. Along with the Spratt Road option, the city has also added a possible alignment that would travel along Long Island Road, with sub-options turning west along Bridge Street or continuing down Van Vliet Road. Beltzner said the Spratt Road option may seem the better choice for the community as there would be less impact on traffic, but in reality it sets the stage for big-box development. Originally the study area only included alignment options along River Road, all beginning at Earl Armstrong Road and heading south before breaking off at Bridge Street. However at a July 25 meeting the city’s technical advisory committee suggested other options be considered, according to city engineer John Bougadis. “This is a provincial environmental assessment process and it requires thorough examination of all possible options,” he said in an email statement. It was not clear why the options were not included at the beginning of the study. Although the consultation period has officially closed, Bougadis said information

about the updated project will be posted at manotickwater “in the near future” and residents will be able to comment. Those who have already commented will be emailed the new information. An open house will be held in the fall “once a preferred alternative has been identified,” Bougadis said. Beltzner said the Long Island Road option could become an incredible coup for the village. The addition of two possible routes along the road, which runs north-south through the middle of Long Island, could provide an opportunity for cost savings and community benefit, Beltzner said. Aside from providing potential water hook-ups for the nearby residents, the alignment would also provide an opportunity to combine several city projects together, saving money for the city and inconvenience for area residents, he said. The project will eventually lead to a water main link that will provide more water and sewer service through Manotick’s core. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt could not be reached for comment by press time.

Studio holds exhibition to raise money for Alzheimer’s research EMC news - An art exhibit from local Old Ottawa South business owner and photographer Jérôme Scullino aims to help fund Alzheimer’s research at the University of Ottawa. The Art for Alzheimer’s exhibition on Aug. 19 will support the non-profit foundation You and Me for Memories, a foundation dedicated in raising money for Alzheimer’s disease research. Jérôme Scullino Photography Studio in Old Ottawa South will feature selections from Scullino’s personal work, Les Invisibles, a collection of photographs of the elders from a small town in France. The feature photograph, one of an elderly couple embracing, highlights the impacts of a disease such as Alzheimer’s said studio manager Ashleigh Birkett. Scullino, not shy to offer his help when it comes to help fundraise for a cause, jumped at the chance to help the organization. “It is important to the studio to give back to the community any way we can,” Birkett said. “From someone who comes to our studio or even ourselves, we have all been affected by this disease and we want to help.” Birkett added it is also important to the studio to give back to the community. You and Me for Memories is a volunteer group that raises money for Alzheimer’s research done by Dr. Richard Bergeron, a physician with the University of Ottawa’s faculty of medicine. The foundation was created in 2008 by St-Jean’s brother, David, and his friend, Bruce Levis, who both had mothers who suffered from the disease. At one time, the group raised all its money through one annual fall gala, but now holds several small fundraising events throughout the year at local long term care homes. This will be the first businessorganized fundraiser for the foundation. Over the past four years the organization has raised more than $175,000. St-Jean said the goal this year will be to sell more than

1,000 tickets, which are on sale for $80 each. AN EVENING TO REMEMBER

Karen St-Jean, the foundation’s director of media relations and events sponsorships, said the idea for the fundraiser arose when she approached the photography studio for a donation for their annual fall gala, An Evening to Remember. Scullino, who also had a family member suffering from Alzheimer’s, showed St-Jean his photographs taken of an elderly couple embracing from the Les Invisibles series. “I started to cry, it reminded me of the way my father was with my mother,” St-Jean said. “It was when I saw the photograph that a conversation started about the possibility of holding an event at the studio.” Briket agreed that it was through the emotional conversation of what it is like to have a family member live with the disease which led the studio to offer to hold the one day fundraising event. This isn’t the first time that the photographs of Les Invisibles have been on display, Brikett added, but it is the first time the photos will be displayed the way Scullino wants them to be. “The studio felt being able to exhibit the photos would bring awareness to the disease and to the studio. It is a project of Jérôme’s (Scullino’s) that is very dear to him, they have never been shown the way he wanted it to be, and this is his chance,” Brikett said. The staff of three began canvassing the area, from lo-

Pinhey’s Point celebrates the Ottawa River Kate Glynn

EMC news - Pinhey’s Point Historical Site held its 29thannual Riverfest on Sunday, Aug. 12. The outdoor festival is held every year to celebrate the history and traditions of the Ottawa River and the people

who worked and lived along its shores. The event featured boat rides on the Bytown Brigantine, and displays by heritage trades people and artisans as well as musical performances by Corkery Road and Northern Voices. The Horaceville estate was

the home of Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey, a British settler who was a leading citizen of Upper Canada. The Pinhey family lived in the home until the early 1970s. Support for the Riverfest event comes from other Ottawa area museums, volunteers and history enthusiasts.

ty committee will be watching for any increase in criminal activity in the area. The centre will relocate to city hall on September. Crime prevention information can be picked up at any of the other community police centres in the city. For urgent police matters, police have requested residents go to the Ottawa Police Station at 474 Elgin St. or call 613-236-1222 ext. 5766.

the level of interaction will not change,” he said. Tracy said the number of officers for the area and the centre itself won’t change, adding that the level of service will remain the same. “Moving will not affect what the community police centre does,” Tracy said.

tre’s presence. Residents are worried that criminal activity in the area will increase after the centre moves to a new location, he said. The new location also poses some concerns. The move, Dekker said takes the centre away from residential homes. “Are people going to go to the new centre? They might call 911 instead,” Dekker said. Dekker suggested a space, such as a community centre could have also been used to house the community police centre. “A location like the Jack Purcell Recreation Association could have worked and people may have been more receptive to the move,” he said. But according to Sgt. Stephane Tracy, the move will not cause disruptions or affect programs and services offered by the downtown community police centre. Dekker said he hopes this is the case. “I know the officers out of that building were fabulous and we are anticipating that




sibility, but at what point do we worry about the safety of the residents?” Dekker said. The building was closed over several months in 2011 for renovations, re-opening in April. At the time, the community police officer in charge of the centre Const. Khoa Hoang said the interim period had been extremely difficult for staff, the community, and business partners. Upon re-opening, the centre was flooded with residents, happy to have the centre back. Now, Dekker said, it will be gone for good. “One email from a resident asked, ‘how many (officers) boots will it take to replace a sign?’ And that is the question, isn’t it?” Dekker said. Dekker is referring to the element of safety the community police centre has offered, simply by being in the neighbourhood. The centre will move from directly beside a methadone clinic to an office in city hall. Somerset West has not had too much criminal activity, and Dekker and area residents have credited that to the cen-


EMC news - The recent decision to close the Somerset Community Police Centre does not sit well with some area residents. The Ottawa police made the announcement that the community police centre located at 393 Somerset St. West would close for good on Aug. 7. The centre would be relocated to space at city hall in September. Robert Dekker, vice-president of the Centretown Citizens Community Association reported he has heard from many concerned residents in the area. “There is concern with the station gone, the safety the community currently feels will be gone and they are apprehensive of what could happen.” Dekker is not happy with what he called a sudden decision to close the building. “We were surprised. We received notice at 1:30 p.m. on a Friday before the long weekend? We thought we would get

more notice,” Dekker said. The association, Dekker added, had heard there was potential for the centre to close, but had hopped to have taken part in a consultation process on where the new centre could be. “I think, maybe I am being presumptuous, that the association was owed a phone call, but it would have been nice,” Dekker said. Cost of rent for the building is the given reason for the closure. Police chief Charles Bordeleau said that various provinces are facing sustainability issues and have to learn to reallocate resources. “Managing within that envelope is a challenge we’re facing,” he said. “We looked at that we’re paying rent, $60,000 a year. How can we partner up with the city to save money?” By changing the location of the Centretown station, the department will drastically reduce rent costs to run the station. Dekker is not convinced. “I understand social respon-

Your academic history and workload don’t leave much room for creativity. But if you want to go out and do something, then simply do it. You will find a work-around.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Sagittarius, something important has passed but you are still reaping the benefits. Bask in the afterglow as much as you can because it can’t last forever.

There is something in the stars this week pushing you to make a change, Cancer. The change may be as simple as wearing your hair a new way or as significant as changing careers.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

This is the week to shop for something new, Libra. It may be a new wardrobe, some new furnishings, or even a new car. Your purchasing power is high right now.

Virgo, it’s time to reconsider a difficult situation. If you still hold to a particular belief, you could be limiting your possibilities. Adopt a new point of view to gain a different perspective.

Capricorn, you may find you’re struggling a little to define your identity, but things will fall into place soon. You’re an ecclectic mix of attributes, anyway. Aquarius, maintain a positive attitude this week and you’ll benefit greatly from having done so. Once you get it right, everything will click. Pisces, for one reason or another, some issues will go unresolved this week. They can wait, so don’t worry.

This weeks puzzle answers in next weeks issue

Last week’s answers

Fun By The Numbers Like puzzles? Then you’ll love sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your sudoku savvy to the test! Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!


Some change is in order, Aries. You have realized it for some time now, but this week it must come to fruition. Think about the way you want to approach this.

We're back for another year of fun! Ottawa South EMC - Thursday, August 16, 2012
