EMC news - This summer, 256 teens were able to find summer employment through the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa’s summer jobs program. The youth services bureau (YSB) ran three days of workshops for the youth, who came from lower-income Ottawa neighbourhoods, to teach resume and interview skills before they applied for jobs with businesses that are members of the program. Zi Tian Zhang, 16, who wants to be a doctor, said getting to work with the hepatitis C awareness program at Jer’s Vision was a good introduction to the field of medicine. Zi Tian is going into Grade 11 at Canterbury High School in the fall, and will be heading back with a summer of work experience under his belt. He was able to work with an awareness campaign, and go to the YSB drop-in program downtown to work with other youth. He also worked on support for Day of Pink, an annual antibullying Jer’s Vision-run event, making buttons and phoning politicians and community partners. Having his first job was a bit nerve-wracking at first, but he quickly adjusted. “(My interview) was terrifying, I stumbled, and I remember him telling me I was going to be working harder than the average summer job,” Zi Tian said.

Watson’s Mill $11,000 closer to roof repair Scotiabank branch offers big donation for roof campaign Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Watson’s Mill is one step closer to replacing its badly leaking roof after employees at a nearby Sco-

tiabank branch stepped up to raise some much needed cash. The mill hosted its annual wine tasting event on Aug. 10, but this year’s fundraising efforts were taken to a new level thanks to a partnership with the Riverside South Scotiabank branch. Through a corporate matching program, five Scotiabank employees were allowed to raise up to $1,000 each for the mill by selling tickets in advance and raffle tickets and samples at the event. Scotiabank then matched the fundraising with $5,000 of its own,

which will go towards the Raise the Roof campaign. The other $6,000 will be used for programming at the mill. The partnership was considered a huge win for the mill, particularly for its Raise the Roof campaign which is trying to raise $200,000 through the community to replace the mill’s leaky roof. “This is absolutely fantastic,” said mill manager Isabel Geoffrion, who accepted a cheque from Riverside South account manager Peter Saunders on Tuesday, Aug. 28.

She said more and more companies are embracing corporate matching programs and other community initiatives, and encouraged everyone to look into what their business is willing to do for the local community. Watson’s Mill board treasurer Karlis Adamsons said the partnership was “really helpful for us” and fellow board member Winston Spratt said the board “thanks (Scotiabank) a great deal” for their efforts.

Roof campaign rolls in donations Continued from page 1

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Members of the Watson’s Mill board and staff from the Riverside South Scotiabank branch celebrate at the historic site after raising $11,363 for programming and a new roof at a recent wine tasting event. Scotiabank branch manager Peter Saunders, in red, presented a $5,000 cheque to mill manager Isabel Geoffrion, middle, and Terry McGovern, left, on Tuesday, Aug. 28.

Adamsons said the Scotiabank staff, including Saunders, Anna Khomutova and Bev Kemp, not only raised thousands of dollars for the mill, but they also gave their time as volunteers during the event. “It wasn’t just fundraising, it was bodies,� Adamsons said. Account manager Peter Saunders, who works out of the Riverside South and Findlay Creek branches, said Scotiabank makes giv-

ing back to the community a priority. And soliciting Riverside South and Barrhaven businesses for sponsorships is a no-brainer, Adamsons said, because the communities are only a short drive away from Manotick and the mill is a regional tourist draw. The mill is an operational 1860’s grist and flour mill located on the shores of the Rideau River in the heart of Manotick. For more information visit www.watsonsmill.com or call 613-692-6455.

Youth Services Bureau program teaches teens job skills Being placed at Jer’s Vision was Zi Tian’s ďŹ rst choice of a summer job, because the founder had spoken to both his Grade 8 and high school classes and he wanted to help contribute to the work they were doing. Having his ďŹ rst paycheque was an accomplishment as well. He recalls the ďŹ rst time he showed up at his father’s house having purchased groceries with his own money. “It felt really good, because I was able to use my own money to bring home groceries,â€? he said, admitting he had to ask for some help at the store to learn how to pick the best fruits. The rest of the money he saved for university, and stocked up on books to read during the school year. Shahrazad Hassan, 16, was another of the students placed. From east Ottawa, she was happy to get a job working in retail at Old Navy in Gloucester. “It was amazing, I really liked the experience,â€? she said. “They prepare you (and) teach you about workplace safety. They helped ďŹ nd a workplace that you would enjoy.â€? It was the ďŹ rst job for all the youth placed, and the ďŹ rst time they received their own paycheques.

Shahrazad saved most of her earnings to pay for a class trip to France this year that will be taken by her class at De La Salle high school. “You feel more independent,â€? she said. Shahrazad said that without the program, many of her friends the same age were working in fast-food restaurants in environments they didn’t necessarily enjoy. YSB sets them up with jobs partner employers, who agree to take on a certain number of students from the program for the six-week placement. YSB executive director Joanne Lowe said the program was important because it gave the students all a chance to earn their ďŹ rst paycheques. “It was a chance to see what’s out there, and what may be possible,â€? she said. “Programs like these are important because they bring together the employers and the young people.â€? Shahrazad’s employer was equally satisďŹ ed. The Gloucester Old Navy has agreed to keep her on as a part-time employee when she returns to high school this year. Several employers in the YSB program offered permanent positions to students. Marwan Saeed, 15, said receiving an offer to return as a camp counselor at Alexander Community Centre

was exciting. The Merivale High School student, who plans to become an English and physical education teacher, said the job was a perfect ďŹ t for her career ambition. “It was a great experience,â€? he said. “I hope the YSB program grows so more youth can get the same experience.â€? Marwan said he divided up his paycheques and donated part of the money to his basketball team, saved some for post-secondary education, and gave some to his parents. His boss was Earl Jones, who has been working with the program for six years, matching up YSB students, and often hiring several to stay on. “Every year I have two or three that shine, they turn around and become role models,â€? he said to the YSB students graduating from the summer program. “Don’t ever say to yourself, I’m too young. A lot of employers look for a shining student.â€? Shahrazad said her biggest challenges were making sure she learned how to properly dress for the workplace, and making sure she was “energetic 24/7â€? to deal with customers. She said she would tell students considering applying next year to “go for it. With YSB, they open doors for you.â€?

The Global Hygiene Council offers the following tips for guarding against germs at school this fall: â&#x20AC;˘ Hand washing: get your child into the habit of washing his or her hands regularly, particularly after visiting the

washroom and before eating, both at home and at school. Remind your child to wash his or her hands before opening their lunch box. â&#x20AC;˘ Surface disinfection: teach your child to wipe off the desk or cafeteria table with disinfectant wipes before eating lunch. This will decrease the chances of your child ingesting harmful bacteria from commonlytouched surfaces, which are more likely to be contaminated. â&#x20AC;˘ Hygienic food prepara-

Citizen advisory groups slashed from 15 to five Changes will save $190,000 annually but critics argue residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; voices will be diminished laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Twenty-three people lined up to give city councillors their swan song for advisory committees on Aug. 30. After it was all over, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governance renewal subcommittee and finance committee had slashed the number of official citizen advisory groups from 15 to five. The move also shifted The Ottawa Built Heritage Advisory Committee from an advisory group to a subcommittee of planning committee mostly comprised of councillors, and a seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; group will become an annual round table event instead. The changes are aimed at saving $190,000 annually. Glebe resident Bob Brocklebank likened the restructuring to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mercy killing.â&#x20AC;? The city has allowed the advisory committees to wither and become irrelevant, making the act of killing them simply the final stage, Brocklebank said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Put advisory committees out of their misery,â&#x20AC;? he said. Patrick Quealey, former chairman of the environmental advisory committee, agreed, saying that the groups have been treated â&#x20AC;&#x153;disrespectfully and shabbilyâ&#x20AC;? by the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At a time when people are disengaging â&#x20AC;Ś these people want to participate. That should be valued,â&#x20AC;? Quealey added. Many of the 23 delegates who spoke to the committee on Aug. 30 agreed it was time for some changes to advisory committees. In 2011, 48 advisory committee meetings were cancelled due to lack of quorum, and most were cancelled at the last moment, which is administratively expensive for the city. Many things have changed since the city amalgamated in 2001, when the advisory committees were established. Access to technology and the availability of social media tools are changing how residents interact with the city and politicians. Other engagement strategies such as summits and departmental working groups have proven more successful as well, according to a report from the city clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Representatives from the Federation of Citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Associations were disappointed that the advisory committee restructuring wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t presented in a context of a broader citizen engagement strategy, something that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen until December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This kind of sounds like a bureaucratic triumph over common sense,â&#x20AC;? said Don Stewart of the FCA. The mandates of the five new advisory committees will be: accessibility; arts, culture,

heritage and recreation; community services; environmental stewardship; and French language services. They will officially meet quarterly, but each group can call additional informal meetings. While some topics like poverty and diversity will no longer have a dedicated advisory group, the function of many of the advisory committees will be absorbed in other ways. The transit commission and health board both now have citizen members who can represent residents on those topics, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report states and business groups are to be represented by Invest Ottawa (formerly OCRI). Rural issues have a forum during the open mike sessions at agriculture and rural affairs committee meetings. The Ottawa Built Heritage Advisory Committee will evolve from a citizen group into a subcommittee of planning committee, with representation from three citizen experts and four city councillors. That was a point of contention amongst heritage advocates, who told the committee that the unbalanced representation would eliminate the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effectiveness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ottawa is proposing to become an anomaly of heritage in Ontario,â&#x20AC;? said Leslie Maitland, president of Heritage Ottawa. The built heritage committee used to have council members on its roster, but they asked to be removed, Maitland pointed out.

FILE

The city took an axe to its citizen advisory committee structure on Aug. 30 in an effort to save money and make citizen input more streamlined. But planning committee chairman Peter Hume argued the change would create â&#x20AC;&#x153;advocatesâ&#x20AC;? for heritage issues on city council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, there are no council advocates around the table for heritage,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that more time spent on heritage issues alongside experts would give built heritage subcommittee councillor members the ammunition and expertise they need to defend heritage issues to their council colleagues. A more formal structure will help the city attract the kind of citizen experts it

wants to see on the committee, Hume said, referencing the problems the city has had in recruiting built heritage committee candidates. Maitland took exception to that. A four-time published author with 35 years of experience in architectural heritage, she applied two years ago and never received a response. While the advisory committee structure did need an overhaul, the city missed the mark on the built heritage committee, Maitland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to fix something that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t broken,â&#x20AC;? she said.

STOP the Destructive Mission of a Cigarette Butt Josée Adam, Project Officer

I am a cigarette butt and my mission in life is to cause mass destruction. Yes, I am like an evil superhero, a menace to society. I pride myself for being almost indestructible - I am not biodegradable, so I never really break down and die. I am also made up of harmful chemicals, making me a threat to children, wildlife and the environment. One of my favourite pass-times is to prey on the vulnerable. Toddlers and young children are curious and innocent, so I can easily fool them. For example, the other day, a 16 month-old girl was playing

in a park sand box and noticed me on the ground. She was curious about what I might be and she picked me up and put me in her mouth expecting a surprise. A surprise she did get, but not the one she wanted. She started to choke and her parents had to take her to the hospital. On the way there, the little girl was vomiting, lethargic and gagging because the poisonous material that I am made of was making her sick. She is only one of many who fall prey to my devious nature. My intention is not only to directly

cause harm to toddlers and young children, but I also love to surf the major waterways while contaminating the water with my super-toxic chemicals like lead, arsenic and cadmium. Yes, more than 200,000 of me were collected as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean in 2010. My surfing activity leads fish to believe I am bait and they swallow me. Birds pick me up and bring me to their babies as food or use me as toxic nest-building material. Aha! I again succeed at spreading destruction wherever I go. All this is to say that I am a public nuisance and cities pay a lot of money to try and get rid of me. For example, the City of Ottawa spends $5.5 million dollars every year cleaning litter – including cigarette butts like me – from roads and parks. I am planning to continue my destructive journey and I dare YOU to try and stop my negative health, environmental and financial impacts. Are you up for the challenge? ..................................................... Cigarette butt litter is an important issue that must be addressed. What can you DO to stop its destructive mission?

• Put the evil butts in their place, where they belong: the butt box or a portable ashtray. • Dispose of fully extinguished matches and partially smoked cigarettes as well as lighters and packaging in the garbage bins. DON’T: • Put butts in storm drains • Throw them out of a car window since it can start a wildfire. • Bring them to places where children and toddlers play – parks, beaches and sports fields - or to natural environments that are contaminated by their presence. The fight against their destruction doesn’t end there. The ultimate action you can take is to reduce the numbers of cigarette butts in your community. This requires you to be a superhero in your own right, and to take courageous steps to quit smoking if you are a smoker or to encourage your friends to quit smoking. If you need help butting out, please visit ottawa.ca/ quitsmoking or call the Ottawa Public Health Information Line at 613-5806744 (TTY: 613-580-9656).

Immunization – Update your Child’s immunization Information with Ottawa Public Health Kathy Selst, Public Health Nurse

Routine immunization is one of the safest and most effective ways to prevent illness and death from many serious contagious diseases. These diseases, while rare in Ontario due to high vaccination rates, still exist, as seen in recent outbreaks of measles and whooping cough (pertussis).

OPINION EDITORIAL

Students caught in labour battle crossfire

P

lease, won’t someone think of the children? Ontario’s government and teachers’ unions don’t seem to be. The cash-strapped Ontario government and several of the province’s teachers unions are embroiled in a battle over proposed legislation to force a wage freeze on elementary and high school teachers. The unions say they are willing to accept a wage freeze, but call the government’s bill unconstitutional

and a violation of workers’ rights. The bill, titled Putting Students First, also calls for teachers to take a 1.5 per cent pay cut in the form of three unpaid professional development days and elimination of banked sick days. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty insists these measures are necessary to maintain jobs and continue to roll out the full-day kindergarten program across Ontario. Meanwhile, a growing

number of teachers, angry over what they call heavyhanded legislation, are threatening to withdraw voluntary services, such as coaching teams and directing plays after school. The media also has reports of teachers who are considering removing class educational materials they have purchased out of their own pocket. Both the government and the teachers say they are fighting for students’ education.

We beg to differ. The Ontario government’s bill was created to balance the books – and preserve Dalton McGuinty’s legacy as the “education premier.” The teachers are simply trying to preserve their collective bargaining rights. But the kids are getting caught in the middle. If teachers individually choose not to volunteer after school, that could mean fewer extra-curricular activities available for students.

Our children should not be used as a collective bargaining chip. Premier McGuinty, for his part, should keep in mind that teachers freely volunteer their time to provide extracurricular activities for students. The dispute almost seems a little silly, as both sides have agreed a wage freeze is necessary, at least for the short-term. It’s ridiculous that both sides are engaged in what amounts to last-minute

negotiations. A deal should have been worked out months ago. Instead of ironing out a deal, it seems both sides have engaged in a little game of Russian roulette. Unfortunately, it’s the province’s children who will end up the ultimate losers in their little game. Both sides need to abandon their public posturing, and focus instead on working out a deal that addresses each other’s concerns.

Connected on the dock CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

R

eflecting back on the summer just passed, it is possible to conclude that there is something changeless about summer life in Canada – the lakes, the loons, the summer breezes, the sounds of the birds, the roar of the motorboats, the quiet two-lane roads, the trailers in front of you on the two-lane roads, the grilled cheese sandwich beside the highway. There’s good and bad in it, but it hasn’t changed much in decades. Sure the cottages are bigger, the toys are faster and louder and a simple lifestyle that once was common is now regarded as primitive. But can it really stay the same? The time spent at cottages and on the highway this summer makes me wonder. For this was the summer of Wi-Fi, the first of many. In the remotest parts of Northern Ontario, the smallest motels offered Wi-Fi on their signs along the highway. Wi-Fi or some other forms of connectivity were in evidence on devices brought to the cottage. Connectivity was everywhere. Getting away from it all was nowhere. Which is different, because the cottage used to be the one place that was unconnected. Sure, there might be a phone, but nobody used it much. Even the telemarketers didn’t seem to know the number. As for email, it was a distant dream, or nightmare, depending on how you viewed it. This was frustrating for some people, not so for others. The others were perfectly con-

tent to find out what was going on in the city when they got back to the city. They could live without the latest news, the latest blogs. But for some it was frustrating to be out of touch. And you could tell, this summer, by how often they sat with their devices, the phones and iPads and laptops, looking at newly-connected screens. The fact is that for most of us connectedness is no longer an option. People expect us to be online and answer immediately. We open emails with the expectations we used to have about opening the mail. Something good might be there: the Queen wants to meet you, a previously unknown rich uncle has died and left you millions, someone wants to film your life story. Not being able to have access to this news has been a drag. Now the drag is gone and we can stay in the real world – as if life in the city is somehow more real than life beside the lake. Will Wi-Fi spoil the summer experience? Not for those rare individuals who can take it or leave it, who can spend days without looking at a screen and only check their email once a week. But it will definitely be spoiled for those who hoped to spend a few weeks free of people reading them funny items found on the Internet. On the other hand, the absence of connectedness makes some people difficult to live with. They are antsy, irritable, always charging off to the library or the nearest coffee shop to check emails, even if the nearest one is a boat ride away plus many kilometres on the highway. Now that they can check their emails on the dock they will be easier to live with. And when you have a family argument about some arcane movie trivia you can refer it to Google, thus heading off hours of debate. Maybe you can even find the instructions for the chainsaw. You take your small blessings where you can.

Bridge named after former Gloucester mayor Harry Allen’s name now on a bridge he helped expand Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - A bridge over Green’s Creek has been renamed after former Gloucester mayor Harry Allen. Allen was joined by his family, friends and former political figures from his time in Gloucester city hall on Aug. 24 for the unveiling of the commemorative plaque and sign. After moving to Beacon Hill and joining the community association, he became a Gloucester councillor and later mayor. “Those roots start in the parks, they start in the rinks,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. “Have you held a hose at 2 a.m. in -30 degree weather? He has.” The bridge is located on St. Joseph Boulevard at the Green’s Creek crossing, close to Blackburn. Allen worked on having the bridge expanded as a part of the St. Joseph Boulevard expansion, so it is a fitting spot to name in honour of the former mayor, who now lives in Kanata Lakes.

“I’m proud to have a bridge in the community that will forever bear your name,” Bloess said. “Every time you drive over it, think of what you’ve done for us.” Bloess said that Allen was instrumental in developing many of Gloucester’s recreation facilities, including the Earl Armstrong Arena. He was also focused on infrastructure, overseeing the re-alignment of the Rockcliffe Parkway and the extension of the Queensway. Bloess said that Allen showed courage as a politician because he had to make the decision to significantly raise taxes. “Harry Allen showed courage and leadership when it came to the budget,” Bloess said. Mayor Jim Watson said that Allen “unquestionably” met the criteria to have a commemorative naming made in his honour. “Harry always stuck to his convictions and the changes he made still remain,” Watson said. Allen said that he looks back fondly on the years he spent in office. “I enjoyed every moment,” he said. “Did we have challenges? Yes. We had challenges to financially do what is right. We had to take certain risks, but we had to do

A $59-million project to increase service on the O-Train line will mean the rail transit will have to be temporarily shut down for all of summer 2013.

O-Train to be shut down for summer 2013 Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The O-Train will be off the rails for the entire summer of 2013. The temporary 18-week shutdown is part of a $59-million project to add two passing tracks and six new trains to increase service frequency on the busy north-south rail line. When the upgrades are complete and service resumes on Sept. 3, 2013, O-Train service will have increased to every eight minutes from 15 minutes. The increase in service will help reduce transit congestion when the city’s east-west Light Rail Transit (LRT) line is under construction beginning next year. OC Transpo will offer a replacement bus service while the O-Train is shut down from April 27 to Sept. 2, 2013; however, the city has not decided how frequently shuttles would run. The bus service will be included in the 2013 budget to be debated this fall and OC Transpo passengers will be informed of the changes when

the temporary shutdown draws closer, said transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans. The downtime will coincide with the lighter summer term for Carleton University – the most significant destination on the O-Train line. The work also aligns with other planned O-Train-related construction: upgrades to the Rideau River bridge, the Carleton University pedestrian pathway and Sawmill Creek Bridges, the Dow’s Lake tunnel and Highway 417 overpass retaining walls. The information was revealed in a memo to city councillors this week in advance of a request for proposal for the construction work. An “experiment” that begin in 2001, the O-Train has now reached capacity on some trips. At first only about 5,100 to 6,400 people were taking the train each day, but ridership has soared to 12,000 trips daily. People have taken more than 16 million trips on the train since it launched. Adding six trains and two passing tracks is expected to give the O-Train line another 20 years of life.

Technology Helping Today’s Students and Teachers and social commitments often making it difficult for students to meet with their teachers for oneon-one instruction. With e-mail, however, today’s students can e-mail their professors whenever a question or issue regarding their study arises. In many cases, e-mail access has improved the line of communication between student and teacher, especially among students who might be too shy to ask a question in the classroom. * Technology has improved kids’ comfort level. Many moms and dads marvel at their kids’ ability to adapt to computers. But today’s kids are not all natural born computer whizzes. Instead, they merely grew up with the technology and therefore find it more natural to work with. This has helped improve children’s comfort level in the modern classroom, where computers have become increasingly prevalent. Nowadays, many kids are familiar, or at the very least acquainted, with computers before they enter kindergarten. As a result, once they do begin school and see computers in the classroom they’re less likely to be intimidated and more likely to feel right at home.

and educators in a number of ways. * Interactive Web sites can help kids better understand coursework. The Internet has both its advantages and disadvantages with respect to kids. One clear benefit is the use of interactive Web sites to help children learn. For example, children can now visit a Web site, read a story for class and then answer questions pertaining to what they just read. When done with a given quiz or questionnaire, kids are then shown how they fared. In many cases, these post-quiz breakdowns show kids which questions they answered right and which they answered incorrectly. Such interaction allows information to sink in instantly, as opposed to waiting until the next day in class when the materials are discussed. Interactive Web sites are available for most subjects, including math and spelling. * Technology has helped improve the lines of communication between students and teachers. Thanks to e-mail, today’s educators are more accessible than ever before. This is especially important when considering today’s kids tend to be busier than ever before, with school

Since the turn of the century, technology has changed just about every aspect of life. Perhaps nowhere is that more evident than in the increasing rate of cellular phone subscribers. According to CTIA-The Wireless Association(R), an international nonprofit representing the wireless communications industry, cell phone subscribers totaled a little more than 86 million in 1999. By 2008, that figured had ballooned to more than 262 million, a staggering increase in such a short period of time. The growth of cell phone subscribers is indicative of the growing reliance the world has placed on technology. Few people can envision the world before cell phones were so prevalent, even though such was the case as recently as 15 years ago. While some scoff at society’s apparent dependence on technology, technology has paid innumerable dividends in many areas of life, including the classroom. Students can now access more information much more quickly than their mothers and fathers could when they were students. Such readily available access has helped students

mons and former federal information commissioner, has been appointed as Ottawa’s first integrity commissioner. Marleau said he was interested in the job because everything was not predetermined and he could have input on the development of things like the council code of conduct. The city’s level-headed ap-

proach to integrity issues impressed him, Marleau said. “Many other governments and public institutions do this under duress because of a crisis of sorts,” Marleau said. As a citizen of Ottawa and someone who is well-versed in ethics and integrity issues, Marleau said he felt the role was both important and a good fit for him. A graduate of the University of Ottawa, Marleau served as the interim federal privacy commissioner after 13 years as the House clerk. He was the information commissioner for Canada for more than two years before abruptly resigning in 2007. He was chosen from a pool of 18 candidates who applied for the job. Mayor Jim Watson said Marleau is respected both locally and nationally. “His word will carry weight,” Watson said. The new integrity commissioner said he sees his role as a resource for councillors to get advice on the sensitive situations that arise from political life. “I think what councillors need is someone they can consult in confidence about issues which emerge around the vulnerabilities of public life and have the benefit of an independent, above-the-fray, non-political advisor, and conduct themselves accordingly,” Marleau said, adding, “it would be up to councillors to resolve those issues themselves.” His greatest challenge will be getting to know the politicians and senior staff at city hall, Marleau said.

“I’m very familiar with the elected official, but this is a different environment,” he said. “I have a learning curve.” Marleau’s work will include developing a code of conduct for members of city council, as well as any related policies, such as an expense policy and gifts registry. He will also produce an annual report summarizing complaints, investigations and advice to the city and suggestions for improvements that could be made to the accountability policies he will oversee. But Marleau’s first job will be managing the new lobbyist registry that goes into effect Sept. 1. The online tool lobbyists will use to register is “excellent, simple and intuitive,” Marleau said. Now the next step will be developing materials for both city politicians and lobbyists so they know what is expected of them. While Marleau said he takes his direction from city council, he said it would be very difficult for him to accept anything less than complete independence. Ottawa is the latest city to jump on the integrity bandwagon, Marleau said. “I think there is a trend in government in North America right now, in all levels, to be a lot more transparent,” Marleau said. Technology makes it difficult for governments to hide anything, he said, so it makes sense to be proactive. “They may as well be clear with the citizen, and they may as well inform them,” he said.

EMC news - Last year, two men set out on a mission to blog about Vanier, giving the neighbourhood a space to document what was and what might be in the future. The blog is now in its “second season,” with the creators keen to continue telling Vanier’s story. It began when Mike Bulthuis and Mike Steinhauer moved to the area and wanted to find out more about their neighbourhood. Their curiosity saw them up to their elbows in library archives doing research, sorting through old photographs and learning as much as they could about how the city of Vanier came to be. The two decided Vanier’s history needed to be told and in November 2011, the Vanier Now blog was launched. After taking a break over the summer, Bulthuis and Steinhauer were back posting as of Sept. 6 with more unique posts to come in the days and weeks to come. “Knowing very little, we wanted to know the stories of Vanier, there was so little out there and nothing on a web platform,” Steinhauer said.

“We wanted to fill that gap.” Dividing up the tasks of running the site, Bulthuis does the writing and Steinhauer handles the design. After eight months and 85 posts, the two have become the digital historians of the area. Both are pleased with the end result and the reaction they have received from the community. “It is fun seeing the response from people and that is something we didn’t expect,” Steinhauer said. “When we started we didn’t care too much about how many followers we would get or how many hits we would have, so the response we have been receiving is exciting and something we didn’t expect.” The blog has attracted interest from both long-time Vanier residents and newcomers to the neighbourhood, the bloggers said. The goal of the website, Bulthuis explained, was not to become a news source for the area, but rather a place to document Vanier’s history and highlight its potential. “It is very exciting and we have just scratched the surface,” Steinhauer said. The two have managed to tease followers with series on

developments and a photo of the week posting where residents had to guess where the photo was taken. Steinhauer said the photo of the week postings have been fun for the two of them as well, because sometimes they weren’t even sure where some of the photographs were taken. The second season of the blog will include defining the boundaries of Vanier and looking at built heritage in the community. “There are only two heritage designated spots in Vanier, which is surprising,” Steinhauer said. The old village of Vanier had been documenting the heritage in the area, but according to Steinhauer and Bulthuis that was lost once Vanier was amalgamated. The two are aiming to start the list up again and seek heritage designations for some homes. “We have had a lot of energy in the beginning and we still have it,” Bulthuis said. “It became a bit of a passion for us. Both men have day jobs, so they spend evenings and weekends working on the blog. Readers can check out the blog at vaniernow. blogspot.ca.

Grannies open hearts and homes in Metcalfe Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The Metcalfe Grannies All About Kids are hoping to â&#x20AC;&#x153;turn the tideâ&#x20AC;? for African grandmothers as they host a Kanata group who are cycling through the region to raise money for their African counterparts. The Grannies are a group of Metcalfe-area grandmothers who are part of the national Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign to raise money and awareness for African women raising their grandchildren orphaned by the AIDS epidemic. On Thursday, Sept. 6 the 13 local grannies will billet 26 members of another Grandmothers to Grandmothers group, the Kanata Grassroot Grannies, who have traded aprons and rocking chairs for bikes and spandex for the Ride to Turn the Tide, a whopping 270-kilometre route through the Ottawa region. Travelling from Kanata to Perth where they will stay the night on Sept. 5, the 22 cyclists and four support crew will then cycle from Perth to Metcalfe where the Metcalfe Grannies will give them a place to sleep Sept. 6 before cycling home. But the billeting will offer more than just beds.

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Metcalfe grannies Betty Prophet, Joan Heyland, Barb Rother, Kathleen Everett and Bev McKibbon and their fellow grannies will host a huge feast and party for the Kanata Grassroot Grannies as they complete the last leg of their 270-kilometre bike ride through the Ottawa Valley. Once the cycling grandmothers arrive in Metcalfe, local grannies will take their charges home for a shower and a quick rest. Then group leader Bev McKibbon will host everyone for a huge feast at her Metcalfe home.

To prepare, she and her husband clear out their garage to make room for the big group, and each of the Metcalfe grannies provide food for the feast. Of course, McKibbon said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have â&#x20AC;&#x153;lots of helpâ&#x20AC;? cleaning up. Some grannies will host

up to seven or eight cyclists, while others who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the room, offer to drive or cook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a group effort,â&#x20AC;? said McKibbon, who will host as many as seven cyclists at her home. Throughout the evening,

the cyclists will be treated to massages in McKibbonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family room, provided by local massage therapist Jaclyn Spencer. The Knox Edwards United Church Choir will entertain the group with songs about Africa, cycling and helping

others. At the end of the night, McKibbon said there will be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;special eventâ&#x20AC;? that remains a surprise but will unite the two groups in their quest to support African grandmothers. See GRANNIES, page 18

Hydro Ottawa, Crime Stoppers join forces

Grannies help those raising second family Continued from page 17

Many African grandmothers not only had to watch their children die of AIDS, but have now in their 60s and 70s been left to raise their young grandchildren. HAPPY HOSTS

Wayne Bissett, Chairman of Crime Stoppers; Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa; and Mayor Jim Watson show the Crime Stoppers decals that will be on more than 100 Hydro Ottawa vehicles.

Hydro Ottawa is proud to support Crime Stoppers, a locally-run program that provides cash rewards and confidentiality to those who have anonymous information that helps the police solve crimes. “Together we are keeping our community safe by teaming up to ensure those individuals who engage in illegal activities, including stealing electricity to power illegal grow houses, are reported,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. “Many grow houses tamper with electricity wiring, which can be very dangerous for the occupants of the home, the public and our employees.”

This is the Metcalfe group’s third year hosting the Kanata Grassroot Grannies on their ride. The first year, the Kanata group reached out to granny groups across the region asking for places to sleep on their first annual ride. McKibbon and her group responded, and hosted their dinner and party at the Metcalfe Lion’s Den. The following year, the Kanata grannies called McKibbon and asked for the same favour. “They had such a good time here, that the next year they said if we considered hosting them again they would do the ride again,” McKibbon laughed. But that year, McKibbon and her husband decided to do the hosting themselves. After all, they had successfully hosted their own family reunions before, and a private home would give everyone more freedom to relax and enjoy themselves. “It’s just a warmer, friendly place to do it. We did it last

In payment, the Kanata grannies put aside a small amount of their fundraising to be donated in the Metcalfe group’s name. All of the money raised – this year more than $32,000 – goes to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign, the umbrella charity that all

granny groups across the country fall under. Kanata granny Shirley Mander, who is cycling the 270 kilometres, said the hospitality of other granny groups is crucial to the success of their ride. Not only do the groups provide the basic necessities of food, drink and a place to sleep, but they also share a sense of unity that keeps the cyclists going. “All along the way, we en-

Hydro Ottawa has presented the National Capital Area Crime Stoppers with a cheque for $3,040. This represents the rewards paid since 2009 for tips that have helped shut down marijuana grow operations. Approximately 100 Hydro Ottawa pick-up trucks and vans will also display a Crime Stoppers decal. “In all, Crime Stoppers has helped recover over $90 million worth of stolen property and illicit drugs since the program began locally in 1985,” said Wayne Bissett, Chairman of the National Capital Area Crime Stoppers. “In 2011, tips led to the arrest of 89 individuals, over 500 charges being laid and the recovery of 15 firearms.” To report a tip anonymously and earn a reward of up to $2,000, call Crime Stoppers at 613-233TIPS (8477) or toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

In the spirit of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers motto – “we won’t rest until they can rest” – Mander said the Ride to Turn the Tide is a small feat compared to what African grandmothers do every day. “Our cycling is certainly a challenge as distances are long but we feel that the challenges we face are small in comparison to the daily hardships endured by our African counterparts,” she said.

Lansdowne Conservancy legal bid goes belly up Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The beleaguered Lansdowne Park redevelopment project cleared one of its last legal hurdles last week when the Ontario Court of Appeal dismissed a request for appeal from the Lansdowne Park Conservancy on Aug. 28. The decision effectively shut down that legal challenge against the $300-million project and allows work to move ahead on the project.

The only remaining option for the Conservancy would be a request to appeal to the Supreme Court within 60 days – a move city solicitor Rick O’Connor said would be “exceedingly difficult” in a memo to councillors. The legal challenge brought by Glebe resident John Martin’s Conservancy group was dismissed as an abuse of process by Ontario divisional court on March 23. Between that decision and the most recent rejection by the Court of Appeal, Martin

tin wrote. “The choice is now up to our elected officials.” The Conservancy case is the second legal challenge to the project to be rejected by the courts. The Friends of Lansdowne spent $600,000 taking their fight to a threejudge panel at the Ontario Superior Court. On April 30, the panel agreed that the city’s partnership with the OSEG doesn’t constitute an illegal subsidy for a private business, rejecting the Friends of Lansdowne’s legal appeal of the project. The Friends announced on June 14 that they would not take their case to the Supreme Court. City council will still need to give final authorization for Lansdowne contracts after two months have passed, once there is no longer any threat of legal action.

Youth treatment centre ready for guests Ontario’s only francophone residential treatment centre Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Francophone youth in need of residential treatment for drug and alcohol abuse will have improved opportunities now that Maison Fraternité’s six-bed addition is complete. The sleek new addition to Maison Fraternité, located at 300 Olmstead Rd., will welcome its first group of youths on Sept. 18. The expansion allows for the centre to offer inpatient care for the first time, beyond the day programs currently available for francophone youth in Ontario. Executive director Denis Boileau and his staff see the expansion as a way to offer complete care for struggling francophone youth not just in Ottawa, but across the province. “Imagine being hurt and not being able to express how you feel,” Boileau said. “That is what it has been like for francophone youth in Englishspeaking programs. This new residential centre will offer these youth complete care.” The Olmstead centre currently takes youth from the age of 12 to 18 and helps them learn to deal with drug or alcohol addiction by improving self-esteem, addressing concerns that arise in the home and the effects of peer pressure. The beds will be available for youth who need treatment beyond regular working hours. They will receive around the clock care for up to 60 days of treatment and Boileau said if more treatment is needed, stays could be extended even longer. Youth who will be checking

in have been identified either by their own family doctors or by school counsellors. In Ottawa, Maison Fraternité has counsellors in all the FrenchCatholic schools. These therapists will determine which youth would benefit from inpatient care. Each patient will have their own room with a bed, desk and closet. The kitchen and laundry rooms are shared and there are two full bathrooms. There is also a designated classroom. While staying at the centre, school work will remain a top priority for the youth, who will work with two full-time educators weekly and a part-time educator who will be available on weekends. The school board will provide computers for the classroom at the centre. “They can’t fall behind in

their school work,” Boileau said. “School will be provided throughout their stay.” It will not be an easy ride for the youth staying at the centre, they will be expected

Janie Papineau and Marie-Eve Cayer work the desk at the new francophone youth treatment centre in Vanier. The two ladies will be in charge of admitting patients once the centre opens on Sept. 18. to clean their rooms, washroom and common rooms as well as do their own laundry. They will also have to prepare their own breakfast and lunch. Dinner will be provided by the centre. Boileau said the residential treatment centre’s budget of $850,000 is based on five beds. The sixth bedroom was not included in the original funding. This bedroom was made possible by the architect and Boileau working together to save space. “We wanted the extra bed just in case, for both a potential growth in the need in the future or in the upcoming year,” Boileau said. “We were fortunate that the architect made it work.” Each bedroom is only about three by two metres, but feature large windows.

“We wanted the entire space to be flooded with light,” Boileau said. Funding for the sixth bed is not secured and Boileau said he will be seeking funding from the city. The 325-square-metre expansion was made possible

through Project STEP, an initiative that tackles drug and alcohol abuse issues in Ottawa. Currently, youth from Ottawa requiring treatment must travel to facilities located either in Northern Ontario, Quebec or the United States. Project STEP is possible

through support from the province, the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, Health Canada, the Sens Foundation, the Cowan Foundation, Ottawa police, Ottawa Public Health, the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and Ottawa’s four school boards.

Seniors centre celebrates 25th anniversary With more than 600 members, centre to host multiple events Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The Gloucester Senior Adultsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Centre (GSAC) has come a long way since the early days, when seniors gathered at the Eastern Ontario Resource Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arrowsmith Drive location. In 1987, they branched off into their own space to ofďŹ cially form their own group, and now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re celebrating having more than 600 members at their 25th anniversary. Debbie Trickey, who went on to become the executive director of the GSAC two years later, was the chairman of the board at the resource centre when GSAC was formed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of things were happening at the same time,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As time went on, they wanted more space, more time and their own place.â&#x20AC;? When the library previously occupying the space moved, the seniors were able to take advantage and move into their new home. Twenty-ďŹ ve years ago, the work was all being done by volunteers who put in efforts to launch the GSAC on Nov. 22, 1987, with about 125 members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a group of se-

niors that worked really hard and incorporated and got their registered charity status,â&#x20AC;? Trickey said. One of the founding members, Louise Estwick, was president of the group before it even had the Gloucester location, and has been able to return several times to see the substantial growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She certainly worked heart and soul to get that place open,â&#x20AC;? Trickey said. Trickey came to the centre two years later as a full-time executive director and held the same position until her recent April retirement when Sharon Oatway took over. Oatway is still the only fulltime staff member and works with four part-time staff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and several hundred volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way the four of us could run this building,â&#x20AC;? Oatway said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the volunteers are members. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the guiding principles.â&#x20AC;? The centre now has more than 600 members and an average member visits the centre at least once a week, Oatway said. Volunteers keep the centre open late on the evenings and weekends to offer programs and classes the small centre

The anniversary dinner will be a gala-style dinner and dancing event, but to accommodate all who want to celebrate, the centre-hosted dinner event wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just be one night. The centre will have to host several dinners of about 150 diners each to be able to

accommodate everyone, said board vice-president of programs Betty Joanisse, who has been on the board for four years. The ofďŹ cial event will be hosted at Pineview Golf Course on Oct. 16. Tickets will cost $50 for dinner and dancing. SCHEDULE CHANGES

The ďŹ rst schedule had fairly basic roots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bridge and euchre, bingo, shufďŹ&#x201A;eboard, crafts and a weekly lunch. Open up a copy of the fall 2012 schedule, and the variety in programming has grown ten-fold. Classes range from yoga and curolling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is like curling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the Latin dancebased Zumba ďŹ tness class. Of course, cards and the weekly

lunch have ďŹ rmly kept their place in the schedule. Trickey said the desire for programming evolved into a desire for classes taught by instructors, and started to shift to include an increasing amount of ďŹ tness and exercise classes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crafting has gone by the wayside and people want to do more active things like yoga,â&#x20AC;? said Joanisse. The centre is bursting at the seams, but the small space and large membership hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the worst thing that could have happened to the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the space makes it friendlier. People are thrown together,â&#x20AC;? Trickey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that warm, caring family atmosphere is a bonus with this small space that you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get when the space is really large.â&#x20AC;? Trickey said that the longterm friendships are important, especially for some of the seniors who live alone. Members who have had medical problems or have lost a spouse have turned to friends at the centre as a support network many times over through the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there for them 100 per cent,â&#x20AC;? Trickey said. For many members, joining the centre lasts the rest of their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the secret to longevity,â&#x20AC;? Joanisse said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be a social person, and laugh with others.â&#x20AC;?

Proposed riding changes to affect Ottawa voters John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Proposed changes to Canada’s federal ridings would move West Carleton residents into a new riding and split them away from Mississippi Mills. The Ontario Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission, one of 10 set up across the country, has proposed 15 more electoral districts for Ontario, including one new one in the Ottawa area, to bring the province’s total to 121. The changes will be the subject of public hearings this fall, including a two-day session in Ottawa’s Hampton Inn and Conference Centre Nov. 5-6, both starting at 10 a.m. The proposed changes would see West Carleton split from Mississippi Mills with a Carleton-Kanata riding replacing the current Carleton-Mississippi Mills. The Pakenham and Almonte area would move back into a Lanark-based riding. CarletonKanata would also lose an area east of March Road. The far-flung Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington riding would become LanarkHastings-Frontenac, gaining a large rural area stretching from Bancroft to Stirling (Hastings), but losing its southern extension into Napanee and Odessa (Lennox and Addington). There has been a move in

Lanark to make the riding more manageable size-wise and bring Mississippi Mills back into the fold. The increase in Ontario ridings is based on a rise in the province’s population from 11.4 million in 2001 to almost 12.9 million in the 2011 census. The proposed new electoral districts would be located mostly in the Greater Toronto area with additions in Brampton (two), Durham (two), Markham (two), Mississauga, Oakville, Toronto (two) and York. The other four would be in Ottawa, Simcoe, Hamilton and Cambridge. As well, despite a slight population decline, the commission has maintained 10 electoral districts in northern Ontario as a minimum. “Population shifts and increases, efforts to honour existing municipal boundaries whenever possible, and the establishment of 15 new electoral districts have required substantial adjustment to Ontario’s electoral map,” said Justice George Valin, chair of the three-member commission. Douglas Colbourne and Leslie Pal are the other members of the commission responsible for readjusting the province’s federal electoral boundaries. Under the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, the commission’s main aim in redrawing boundaries is to di-

vide the province into electoral districts as close to the average population as reasonably possible. The population of a district should remain within 25 per cent of the average once consideration is given to communities of interest or identity, and historical and geographic factors. The commission makes final decisions about where the electoral boundaries will be located after consultation, giving the public and MPs an opportunity to express their views and participate in the process. To consult the proposal online, visit www.federal-redistribution.ca; to obtain a copy, call the commission at 1-855747-7224 (toll-free). Everyone is invited to share their opinions on the proposed federal electoral map at any of the public hearings taking place in October and November. To make a presentation at a hearing, apply by Oct. 1 call the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario or e-mail the commission’s secretary at ontario@rfed-rcf.ca.

Party held to help renew Optimiste Park michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Optimiste Park will receive another boost from the community when a block party to raise money for the rejuvenation of the Vanier green space kicks off on Sept. 9. Developer Domicile, builders of Kavanaugh on Beechwood going up at the corner of Beechwood and Marquette avenues, have already committed to donating money to

help rejuvenate Optimiste Park, but are holding the party to raise more money for the ailing park. “This is in addition to the money we have committed to,” said Shelly Irving, marketing coordinator for Domicile. The event will feature many different options for donors. Raffle tickets can be purchased to win one of many donated prizes from local businesses. Also, as part of a summer

contest, the Capture the Kavanaugh photo contest invites Vanier residents and future Kavanaugh residents to take photographs of the neighbourhood. The winner of the contest will be revealed and there will be a silent auction to win one of the photographs. A calendar of all the photographs will be also available for purchase. All the proceeds from the raffle, the silent auction and the calendar will go towards the park rejuvenation project.

There will also be a barbecue, music, a petting zoo and face painting at the event. Working with the local community organizations, Domicile said they would like this event to draw as many people from the community as possible. “It has been fantastic working with the local associa-

tions,” Irving said. “This event is both to help the park and to get the community to come together, including our buyers who will have a chance to meet the local organizations.” Quartier Vanier executive director Suzanne Valiquet is looking forward to the event. “It will be exciting,” she said.

The weekend will be full of food, fun and community in as another Vanier developer will also be holding an event on Sept. 7 in an effort to meet with neighbours. Longwood Building Corporation, developers of Sonia by the Rideau, will host a party at its sales centre at 350 Montgomery Rd.

Ergonomically Correct: Posture in the Workplace

By: Your Local Family Physiotherapy Team Are you experiencing back pain, neck pain, or headaches in your office or workplace? Are these aches and pains interfering with your productivity? Poor ergonomics orwork place design may be contributing to your discomfort. Good workplace design can result in overall improved health and safety. It can cause a decreased frequency of musculoskeletal injuries, decreased stress and tension related illnesses, and other health issues such as visual fatigue.

RYAN AUBREY

In an effort to promote Vanier, Domicile held a photo contest over the summer for residents to capture Vanier. This is one of the submitted photos titled Green Ride.

If you are experiencing pain throughout or at the end of your workday, consider reassessing your workspace and implementing the following suggestions. These helpful recommendations can assist in minimizing risk of injury: 1. Ensure your head is not

tilted too far back or too far forward when looking at your computer screen. The top of your screen should be no higher than eye level. 2. Use a telephone headset if you are on the phone frequently. This helps to avoid strain on the neck that occurswhen holding a phone between your ear and shoulder.

6. Knees should be bent to approximately 90 degrees while seated. 7. Feet should be flat on the floor or supported by a footrest. If your aches and pains persist, contact your local Family Physiotherapist to provide you with plenty more helpful tips, therapy and exercises.

3. Your chair should have sufficient back support that maintains the natural curves of your back.

Ergonomically Correct: Posture 4. The chair surface should have enough friction to avoid in the Workplace any sliding off the seat. 5. The front edge of the seat should not put any pressure to the back of your knees and should not be too far back on the bottom of the thighs. There should be no restrictions of blood circulation to your lower limbs.

City turns down four-storey Glebe apartment Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A long-debated proposal for a multi-unit building at 174 Glebe Ave. was rejected by city council on Aug. 29. The developer, which is listed as 174 Glebe Ave. Ltd., was proposing a four-storey structure that is a storey taller and slightly larger in mass than the existing building, which is already much larger than most of the surrounding homes. City planners did not support the rezoning and councillors on the city’s planning committee agreed and rejected the development. City council followed suit on Aug. 30. That decision will likely go to the Ontario Municipal Board, which will reconsider the proposal for a four-storey (13.23-metre) apartment building with 17 units and 20 parking spaces in one level of underground parking. The property currently contains one large three-storey residential building which was

Westboro woman to climb Mount Kilimanjaro Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Joscelyn Coolican will be celebrating her 40th birthday a little differently this year. Instead of blowing out birthday candles in the comfort of her home, the Westboro resident will be scaling the highest peak in Africa as she climbs Mount Kilimanjaro this fall. “I’m very nervous actually,” said Coolican, who’s also a mother of two and avid hockey player and triathlete. “But I haven’t really thought about it too much. I’m more focused on the fundraising aspect.” Coolican will be taking part in the Kilimanjaro Climb for

originally two separate houses built in 1915 and joined by an addition in 1975. The councillor for the area, Capital Ward’s David Chernushenko, said the proposed rezoning didn’t make sense. Although the proposal has been under consultation for months, the developer hasn’t budged, Chernushenko said. One Glebe resident, Valerie Lasher, told the planning committee the new building would tower over its neighbours. Even more worrisome for Lasher was the possible impact of construction on neighbouring homes, some of which are more than 100 years old. Jeff Polowin, a lawyer representing the developer, said part of the issue is that the city’s planning staff has been inconsistent in their position regarding the proposal. “Staff has been all over the map on this,” Polowin said. He emphasized that what the developer is proposing to build is “much more palatable” than what could be built under the existing zoning.

A 47-unit seniors’ residence would be allowed under the existing zoning, for example. “While this density is permitted and while the proposed development to remove the current building and construct a new 17-unit apartment will result in a reduction in units, adding to the building envelope in height and mass is considered to be inappropriate,” a city staff report reads. The architect, Jim Colizza, echoed Polowin’s comments. “You can’t compare this (proposed) building to what you would get under the bylaw,” Colizza said. He said if he had designed an unattractive “box” as the current zoning allowed, the developer wouldn’t have had to go through any consultation or rezoning process. “If you turn it down, you put (the developer) in a position of spending tens of thousands of dollars to fight the city (at the Ontario Municipal Board), or to build something the neighbours really aren’t going to like and make more money,” Polowin said.

Life from Oct. 12 to 26 to raise money for WaterCan - an organization that provides communities in eastern Africa with clean drinking water, basic sanitation and hygiene education. “I have to be completely honest, I have no idea (why I decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro),” said Coolican with a laugh. “About a year ago, around my 39th birthday, and I was starting to get more interested in water issues internationally, so I thought I’d check out WaterCan’s page, and low and behold, there was information regarding the climb. I thought, this looks like it’s for me.” She hopes to raise $10,000 towards WaterCan’s fundraising goals and so far has raised half that amount. Coolican said she has always been interested in international development issues since she was a child, going on to study the subject in university. She remembers when she was in elementary school, she went on strike in school when she learned of the famine in Ethiopia.

In order to train for the almost 6,000-metre climb, Coolican has been climbing the stairs at her work everyday, hiking the Gatineau hills and around Mont Cascades. She has been doing hikes in the boots she’ll be wearing for the climb with her family. Coolican will also be joining eTalk’s Ben Mulroney in a team of 24 Canadians making the trip. In a statement, WaterCan executive director George Yap said the team is inspiring. “This team - comprising industry leaders, TV personalities and adventurous concerned citizens - will serve as an inspiring example of Canada’s global reputation as a dynamic and forward-thinking nation,” Yap said. For those interested in making a mobile donation to the campaign, WaterCan has set up a mobile fundraising initiative where donors can text H20 to 45678.

City of Ottawa flips decision on Woodroffe lot rezoning Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - In a rare move, city council overturned it’s planning committee’s advice to reject a rezoning that would allow seven homes to replace one house on Woodroffe Avenue. The intensification proposal simply wasn’t worth spending upwards of $20,000 for the city to fight it at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), where the plan for 396 Woodroffe Ave. was sure to end up if it was rejected as planning committee wished. “I can’t seem to find a point of planning principle on this issue that convinces me that we should spend money at the OMB,” said planning committee chairman Peter Hume, who implored his council colleagues to overturn his committee’s decision and allow the rezoning. “If we’re going to fight, we need to fight on a good one and this is a marginal one at best,” Hume said. Council members followed his wishes, voting 15-8 in support of the rezoning. The area’s councillor, Mark Taylor, continued his opposition to the planned-unit development by voting against the rezoning, despite his expressed support for the city’s intensification policies. “You can be a supporter of infill and still know when it’s being done improperly,” Tay-

lor said, adding his colleagues should use a “gut test” to determine if the proposal feels right. While he has voted in favour of much denser rezonings in the past, Taylor said 396 Woodroffe Ave. was different because of the context of the neighbourhood, which includes single family homes behind the property. “I think at (planning) committee there were a number of people who heard from Coun. Taylor and felt sympathy for him personally,” Hume said. The unusually deep 1,423square metre property between Georgina Drive and Highway 417 created a planning quandary for city staff and the developer, a numbered company. In the end, the developer refused to budge from its plan to replace one home with two semi-detached buildings containing four units and a threeunit row of townhomes. The city’s planning staff “reluctantly supported” the rezoning because it met good planning principles and that was enough to make it difficult for the city to fight at the OMB. Hume wasn’t the only councillor who expressed surprise at the planning committee’s rejection of the intensification proposal. “It’s a committee that has devoted itself to intensification,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. “If you’re not going to get your intensification on

your main arterials, where are you going to go for it?” He said it was an opportunity for the city to show its commitment to such principles. “This is your litmus test,” Bloess said. “Are you willing to stick by that decision or are you going to abdicate your responsibility?” Gary Sealey, chair of the zoning committee for the Federation of Citizens’ Associations, a group representing community associations from across the city, said at the time that the planning committee’s decision was “a very good step against random spot zoning across the city.” “There is a choice of people over mindless development here. The councillors are hearing that,” Sealey said after the planning committee’s decision. Hume agreed that councillors also dislike spot rezonings and the upcoming Official Plan review will look to reduce or eliminate the perceived need to spot rezone. Streets in transition, such as Woodroffe Avenue and Heron Road, will get special attention. “We heard at committee that (communities) don’t like spot rezoning,” Hume said. “Neither do we, because they are time consuming; they are expensive. What we do know is that when you do things comprehensively, there may not be acceptance, but … it’s permitted.”

New bakery hopes to double as gluten-free resource centre Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Walking into the new FUK Flour bakery inside the Hodge Podge Shoppe in Manotick, hungry customers can feast their eyes on freshly made fudge, cupcakes, date squares and brownies. Savoury items like mini quiches and lunch-time wraps are also available, and nutty, dense breads line the top of the counter. To taste it, you would never guess the food is all completely gluten-free. Owner and Manotick resident Darren Potvin set up shop inside the novelty store on Tighe Street in August, opening what he calls the first 100 per cent gluten free bakery in Ottawa that also doubles as a resource centre for people dealing with gluten intolerance or Celiac disease. Gluten is a protein found in most wheat, barley and rye and is used frequently as a filler in processed food. More than 330,000 people in Canada have Celiac disease, which is a severe food allergy to gluten that can cause major pain and chronic intestinal problems. Canadians are also increasingly being diagnosed as gluten intolerant which can produce similar symptoms depending on severity. The only cure at the moment is to eat gluten-free – something the Canadian Digestive

Health Foundation said can cost families up to 2.5 times more money. Limited access to gluten-free foods can also prevent families and individuals from traveling, dining out and enjoying regular social activities without added cost and inconvenience, the foundation said. The 40-year-old FUK Flour baker has suffered severe gluten intolerance since he was 18, and lived daily with painful digestive problems that doctors told him were the result of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He had a low immune system and was constantly catching colds, and he had no energy. He lived on antacids. Without any formal diagnosis, he was 32 when he finally cracked the case: he saw a naturopathic doctor who convinced him give up gluten for a week, and he suddenly became a whole new person. “My symptoms after the second day had stopped. After the fourth day, my partner said ‘you’re not cranky anymore, and you look healthier,’” Potvin said. He was sleeping better and he had more energy. In one week, he lost 14 pounds, he said. Going back to the nutritionist, she suggested he add a glutinous meal back into his diet to test the results. “Of course, being Italian, I chose pasta,” Potvin said. Within 25 minutes, he said he was sick to his stomach and

After that, Potvin was convinced and has spent the last eight years researching everything he can about the effects of gluten. About four years ago he bought the domain name GlutenfreeOttawa.ca and several others for locations across the country. But only in the past year has he found the time to begin populating the site with his research and links to studies and information across the

world. Since it launched in February, already his site has more than 5,000 hits per month. This enthusiasm was the impetus to begin his FUK (For Ur Knowledge) Flour bakery and resource centre. “There’s no place you can come and get the knowledge and learn,” Potvin said. While his bakery is open to any customer, he caters specifically to gluten intolerant and celiac customers. He wel-

comes them and invites them to take copies of his information sheets which are laid out in the corner of his tiny shop. He also shows them around his shelf of imported glutenfree goodies, including some examples of naturally glutenfree options that are available everywhere, such as VH soy sauce. The shelf also stocks fun kids’ breakfast cereals and Canadian company Holy Crap’s power breakfast mixes. He provides this service, he

said, because he doesn’t want people to go through the steep learning curve he had to. “It was like the end of the world for me. Grocery shopping went from 30 minutes to three hours. It was hellish, having to read every ingredient,” he said. “You start not eating, because you’re afraid of getting sick.” He makes sure to bake entirely gluten free, because he’s painfully aware that even a tiny morsel of gluten product can make a person with a severe intolerance sick for days. But he is also trying to drive home his belief that gluten-free products sold in regular bakeries are not safe for people with severe intolerances, because the gluten can actually be airborne. “Most people aren’t aware of the cross-contamination issues,” he said. He paints a picture of a commercial kitchen baking gluten products next to glutenfree products. “If you throw a handful of flour in the air, it’s like dust. It settles onto everything,” he said. Potvin plans to soon connect all of his online resources into a nation-wide gluten-free resource. In the meantime, he encourages Ottawa residents to come visit him in person. “I want people to come to me so people can get the knowledge they need,” he said.

Glebe author writes about moving out New book teaches youth coping strategies for living away from home Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Inspired by experiences in her own extended family, a Glebe resident has written a book that explores different coping strategies for parents and young adults when it comes time for children to leave home. Cindy Babyn works in the department of foreign affairs by day, but in the evenings and on weekends, she spent time writing about moving out. Inspired by her own 17year-old niece, Babyn wanted to share what she’s learned. At first meant to be a list of tips, after 60 pages, Babyn realized she was writing a book. Moving Out, A young

adult’s guide to living on your own was published in 2011. Babyn, a proud Glebe resident will be promoting the book at her local bookstore, Britton’s at 846 Bank St on Sept. 9. “Moving out is like a right of passage, like a first kiss,” Babyn said. “Both youth and parents need to feel confident that they are ready, and my book offers them a few ways to feel more at ease.” HELPFUL TIPS

The book includes tips on how to rent, landlord and tenant acts, how to find affordable furniture and small budget tips, emotional and social aspects of moving out and an appendix which includes

contact numbers for tenancy dispute resolution services, credit counselling, suicide prevention, addiction treatment support, tax services and moving companies. Babyn is a self-proclaimed expert on the issue. She was 17 when she moved out of her parents’ house and said she must have moved more than 20 times since. “This was one of the easiest things I have ever done in my life,” Babyn said. “The book demystifies the whole process.” FIRST-TIME AUTHOR

As a first-time author, Babyn said she never believed her book could get published and was pleasantly surprised

when she heard the news. Working with a professional editor and designer, Babyn added, was a dream come true and credits the quality of the book to the Renfrew-based General Store Publishing House. Aside from Babyn’s tips, the book also includes interviews with 26 other Canadians who share their moving stories. “This allows for a pile of different scenarios of what you can expect out there,” she said. The book is available at Chapters or online at movingoutayoungadultsguide. com. Babyn will be signing copies of her book at Britton’s on Sept. 9 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Ken Blackburn’s Canterbury Taekwondo: The Difference is in the Results! Back to school for many families means agonizing over the choices, scheduling, and expenses of organized sports and/or extracurricular activities for their children. While most are lost among the wide array of sports programs offered today, smart parents and their kids know that incorporating the right mix of team sports with carefully chosen individual events and activities can mean better results and more importantly personal development, confidence, and fun! For over 32 years, Ken Blackburn of Canterbury Taekwondo has seen his share of kids who didn’t get the full benefit of their involvement in other activities and programs, and he is proud to say he and his team were able to turn the majority around after introducing them to the art of Taekwondo. Master Ken’s successes stem from his years as a competitor and coach both at national and international levels. He has learned the difference between being an educator over simply being a trainer and he has reached the highest goal possible: becoming an effective educator for children. For those who think martial arts are only for combat, Ken is quick to point out that the art of Taekwondo is as much about building character as it is about strength. He was drawn to this particular philosophy of body and mind development because of its ability to be modified for young children (his students start as young as three). In a fun and dynamic class environment students quickly see positive results. For those involved in sports such as soccer, baseball, or hockey, the developments

that Taekwondo bring help to improve their performance and enjoyment of their team sports as well. The key to Taekwondo is the development of the entire person, not just his or her physical abilities. They learn problem solving skills, develop gross and fine motor skills, and come to understand the value of communication to earn friends rather than make opponents. The benefits for parents and families with Ken Blackburn’s Canterbury Taekwondo are also substantial. There’s no extensive travel. Flexible session timing means keeping a busy family schedule intact without stress. And it’s close to home in a comfortable, safe, and well-supervised environment. Of course no other activity can deliver so much for such a modest cost. Master Ken remembers one young mother in particular who brought her three sons (aged 3 to 8) to him a number of years ago in desperation because her home had been turned into a war zone in her words, with constant sibling battles and disagreements. In less than six months of weekly after-school sessions, peace once again reigned as the brothers learned to solve their own problems without resorting to violence or physical aggression. General health and energy levels went up; the amount of video-screen time went down, and as an added bonus, school grades and behaviour improved as well.

Master Ken’s students range in age from 3 to 63 and for older children and adults he also offers instruction in Hapkido. Like Taekwondo, Hapkido stresses the combination of the muscle and mind: in fact its literal translation is ‘a way of life to combine in harmony the power of the mind and body’. In Hapkido, students learn to use their opponent’s force and strength against them making it the ultimate in both self-defence and fitness. Ken Blackburn not only founded Canterbury Taekwondo but he is the community’s longest serving instructor. Ken Blackburn’s Canterbury Taekwondo school is handily located at 2784B Lancaster Road (at Walkley) and offers plenty of free parking and is served by major public transit routes. Classes are offered Monday through Thursday and on Saturdays. Master Ken welcomes newcomers and is happy to let anyone try a class without charge to find out if instruction in the finer art of physical and mental training is for them (few ever leave after just one session). Many students and their parents are amazed at the quick procession of skill development and this keeps kids keen to come back to learn new techniques and moves and this continually serves to build confidence. For a fall, back-to-school special, Canterbury Taekwondo is offering new students a three-month class session with uniform for only $119! You can reach Master Ken at 613-8975425 or check out Canterbury Taekwondo online at www. masterken.ca or on Facebook. For those parents worried that instruction in the martial arts will turn their child into a school-yard terror, Master Ken and every other responsible coach and instructor will quickly point out that their teachings focus only on self-defence, and the proof is that their students bring a philosophy of respect and problem-solving by communication to the classroom and the schoolyard, thus avoiding the principal’s office.

Dogs get pampered at Dovercourt Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Dozens of dogs got pampered at Dovercourt Recreation Centre as part of the annual Dog Swim on Aug. 26. And while the dogs went for a swim, got shampooed, brushed and their nails clipped, a dog rescue shelter also benefited. “(The dogs) love it and they get so excited,” said Christine Pelletier, manager of aquatics at Dovercourt who’s also involved in the event. Pelletier, who’s been with Dovercourt for about 17 years, said the event has been going on at the recreation centre since before she started. “Someone came and asked if we could do it,” she said, adding Dovercourt has a hard time saying no to such requests. Since then the event has happened every year and an animal charity has always been the fundraiser. In the past, Pelletier said Dovercourt held the event to raise money for organizations for guide dogs and the humane society. “We raise a couple hundred every year,” said Pelletier, adding she’s not sure how much the event has raised overall since it started. As part of the event, there was an on-the-spot dog spa, shampooing, brushing, towel drying and nail clipping as well as a swim. Masters’N’Dogs were there with gifts and goodies and the dog swim was sponsored by The Guy With The Dog, in partnership with Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue and Dovercourt.

Staff

Dogs gather at Dovercourt Recreation Centre on Aug. 26 for the annual dog swim event. Pelletier said the event usually attracts about 75 dogs every year and it’s usually the same participants.

“Nobody goes home dry,” she laughed. For more information on events

happening at Dovercourt Recreation Centre, visit their website at www. dovercourt.org.

Children preferred Father’s style of punishment

W

e much preferred Father over Mother when it came to discipline. Father was so soft-hearted he could never come to give us a swat even if we deserved it. Mother felt a disobedient child would never amount to a hill of beans and not only did she on occasion have a heavy hand, she was quick to use it. Often Mother would say to Father, “Those children have to be dealt with. You look after it Albert.” This meant a trip to the drive shed, Father lighting his pipe, we five kids shifting from one foot to the other while awaiting our punishment. Mother was sure Father was in the shed giving us a few whacks with the strap and to make it sound like we were really being punished Father would slap the strap against his work table, Emerson would yelp

like a wounded puppy and eventually we would stagger out of the drive shed pretending to be almost mortally wounded from the blows that never came. Late one summer, there was an incident. My sister Audrey blamed it on the heat. Emerson said it was because school would be going back in a couple days. Whatever the reason, there erupted on the front lawn the most glorious fight of all time. It started when Emerson threw a pail of water on Earl, most of which missed him and caught Audrey square in the face, which completely ruined the curls she got by enduring her hair being tied up in rags all night. She grabbed the pail out of Emerson’s hand and was all set to swat him with it, when Everett grabbed the handle, wrenched it from her, and caught me, the innocent by-

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories stander, square on the backside. It didn’t hurt in the least, but always ready to make the most of any situation getting out of hand I started to roar as if I had been hit with a twoby-four. It didn’t take Mother long to come out of the house to see what all the uproar was about. She always let us settle our own battles, refusing to listen to anyone who was about to tattle. But this was no ordinary disagreement. Audrey was standing on the pump stand, screaming, the three brothers were rolling on the grass and I was wailing that I thought my

back was broken. Father, if he heard the ruckus, was ignoring it. Mother found him in the cow byre and she insisted he take us all into the drive shed and “deal with the whole lot of them.” Father took his pipe out of his mouth and pointed it towards the open doors, not saying a word. He put a stern look on his face and followed us all through the double doors. The heat of the day was on our side. Father had been up since dawn and even though it was early in the day, he looked wilted and tired out. He didn’t look like he was in any mood

to dole out punishment. He asked Audrey what happened to her hair, he told Everett when the discipline was over he was to fill the watering trough, Emerson was to sort the newly bought nails into the tin cans on the shelf, Earl was to feed the chickens, and with a big wink in my direction, he said, “And you young lady have to come to Briscoe’s General Store with me.” But he wasn’t finished with me yet, “You’ll have to eat the humbugs Mr. Briscoe gives you every time you go in the store.” Father knew I hated humbugs with a passion. “Or you can bring them home and give them to Queenie… that old horse sure loves humbugs.” He then gave me another big wink. Just before he let us out of the drive shed, he gave the work table another couple good whacks with the old

leather strap, Emerson let out a few roars as if he had come in direct contact with it, Earl developed the usual sniffles and Audrey, who we all knew was too old to strap, said, “Yes I know not to get involved the next time with any fights.” Father told me to go and wait for him beside the buggy. He walked, filling his pipe at the same time, towards the kitchen door. “Have to run over to Briscoe’s,” he said through the screen. “Mary’s coming with me. And they’ve all been dealt with,” he added over his shoulder. Mother seemed satisfied. I once heard her tell Mrs. Beam that she “could always depend on Albert to discipline the children. Sometimes I just don’t have the energy to handle all five of them.” And for that, we five kids were mighty grateful.

Ottawa police warn public about sales scam EMC news - The Ottawa police are warning the public to beware of purchasing goods from members of the public out of the trunk of a car in a local parking lot. If you are approached by someone who wishes to sell you anything: clothing, carpets, electronics, etc., you are placing yourself at risk for being defrauded. The items are often not what they are presented to be (fake) or stolen and you will be left with no recourse.

This past week, a local man was randomly approached and purchased three leather jackets after being provided a very slick and seemingly true story about the reason they were for sale. The value of the goods was far less than what was represented. The suspect is described as: White, 5’8” (1,73 m), in his 50’s, short balding dark brown hair, clean cut, an Italian accent, fluent in English, French and Italian, small hands with a scar on one thumb.

This same type of scam has been reported in Ottawa in the past and is well documented throughout North America as well. The Ottawa Police reminds everyone to exercise caution and due diligence when purchasing items from non legitimate business vendors and over the internet as well. If you have been approached, or are the victim of this or any other similar scam, report the incident to police so that the trend can be tracked and followed up by investigators.

ne of my favourite Bill Cosby stories is one in which he tries to persuade his wife that it was okay for him to give their kids chocolate cake for breakfast. She doesn’t believe his defence of “They made me do it! They made me give them chocolate cake!” So he falls back on what he figures is a winning argument. “But cake is good for you. There’s all sorts of good stuff in it - there’s wheat and eggs and milk.” Needless to say, he doesn’t persuade her. When I saw this recipe for “Breakfast Cookies,” I immediately thought of Cosby’s story. These cookies also have a lot of “good stuff” in them: molasses, eggs, milk, oatmeal, flour, bran and raisins. While I don’t recommend cookies for breakfast, these make a good after-school snack, especially when eaten with an apple. And they’re not

The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth moon off the Chinese lunar calendar. This year, the festival will take place on Sunday, September 30th. It is one of the most charming and picturesque nights of the calendar when the moon is large and full.

The Festival celebrates the harvest of the year, similar to Thanksgiving Day. It is also a time for families getting together to enjoy a festive full dinner, to eat moon cakes and festive fruits such P as Persimmon and Pomelo, to appreciate the beautiful moon at the night of the Festival.

u lit paper lantern decorations are put up and children parade the lanterns as part of the Colourfully celebration. Sometimes, riddles are placed on the lanterns and guessing the riddles is one of the favourite festival pastimes..

Teens start Natural Leaders outdoors group Teens supported by United Way and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Kingsong Chen wanted youth to get more involved in outdoor activities. When he started the Natural Leaders group, he did just that. “The goal is to encourage my fellow peers to get active in the outdoors,” said Chen, before gearing up for a run between Westboro and Britannia beaches. The 15-year-old Colonel By Secondary School student started the group a couple years ago, which has since received United Way funding and is also supported by the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program. Originally, Chen said he came up with the idea to find ways for his friends to get active. The Healthy Children and Healthy Spaces conference that took place in Ottawa a couple years ago also provided motivation for the group. The conference focused on promoting children’s health. Chen also said the group has grown and throughout the year Natural Leaders hosts events to get youth to

go outside and exploring the outdoors. “We have a lot of youth who really like how we’ve been able to put down the video games and enjoy the outdoors,” he said. On top of holding active events, the youth also host meetings at the Boys and Girls Club. Chen said he hopes to get more young people on board. “There’s a lack of recreation for youth,” he said. “This is the best way to involve youth.” While Natural Leaders has only been around for a year or two, Chen said he wants the group to get more active in the community in the future. Since it started the group has hosted a biking day to encourage youth to bike around Ottawa, and their next event will be taking part in Clean Up the Capital. The Cleaning Up the Capital event is happening in September. “I hope I’ve made a difference,” Chen said. “And I hope we can inspire other youth to join.” For more information or to get involved, email naturalleadersottawa@gmail.com.

Sandy Hill working with university for back to school New Sandy Hill Town and Gown committee up and running

Clearly for us we wanted to build awareness with students to respect the community. MICHEL GUILBAULT UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA HOUSING SERVICE DIRECTOR

Action Sandy Hill, the area community association, wanted to see positive changes in the community that neither excluded students from living near the university nor denied home owners peace of mind. Collmorgen, along with Action Sandy Hill board member Sam Almsaddi and two Ottawa police officers, went to the University of Western Ontario in London for a presentation on their Town and Gown committee in 2011. The Town and Gown committee serves as a forum to address and resolve issues in neighbourhoods surrounding a university campus. Collmorgen recognized the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value and has been working with city bylaw staff, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, the police, the university and the students association to form Sandy Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Town and Gown committee. The terms of reference were officially signed on Aug. 27 and a strategy for the fall semester was also announced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel we are all working together for a common goal,â&#x20AC;?

President of Action Sandy Hill Christopher Collmorgen said recent University of Ottawa student parties have angered and upset residents. Collmorgen said a new group called the Town and Gown committee should hopefully create a better community for students and Sandy Hill home owners. tion Sandy Hill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are hoping in a couple of years, this will not be much of an issue anymore and this September strategy will be only maintenance,â&#x20AC;? Collmorgen said. On top of the education, the city will be sending out garbage trucks on a more frequent basis to keep up with trash generated by the thousands of students moving into housing. A community garage sale, organized by the association, will be held for the entire Sandy Hill area on Sept. 8. The annual welcome barbecue, also organized by as-

sociation, will be on Sept. 15. With a strategy in place Action Sandy Hill, Collmorgen said, is pleased to see the community moving forward on this complex issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we got it this year,â&#x20AC;? he said. Guilbault plans on following up with the door campaign. He will be speaking with the students who participated as well as going on a ride-a-long with a by-law office during the move-in weekend. The Town and Gown committee plans on meeting three times a year, with sub-committees meeting more frequently.

EMC news - Sandy Hill home owners have butted heads with students living in the area over issues such as noise and garbage, but this fall the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Town and Gown committee will be in full swing working to keep the peace between both sets of residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal is to try and address problems before they become problems,â&#x20AC;? said Christopher Collmorgen, president of Action Sandy Hill. Steps away from the University of Ottawa, Sandy Hill is a desirable neighbourhood for new and returning students.

Collmorgen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels very different this September.â&#x20AC;? The strategy, he explained, is geared towards education. There will be door-to-door campaigns, flyers and brochures for students to read up on everything from by-laws to the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly meetings and events. The focus will be on problematic addresses - not to single them out, but to try and mitigate the issues. In the past, the association has attempted to reach out to the new and returning students who live in rentals in the neighbourhood with community barbecues, door-knocking campaigns with the city and police, as well as inviting students to sit on their Action Sandy Hill board. But this year, Collmorgen said, will be the first time that students will participate in the campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be about 20 to 25 students participating in a peer-to-peer campaign,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is what has been missing in the past.â&#x20AC;? University of Ottawa housing service director Michel Guilbault has been working with Collmorgen on the strategy set in place for September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly for us we wanted to build awareness with students to respect the community,â&#x20AC;? Guilbault said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committed to being a good neighbour.â&#x20AC;? Having students speak to fellow students, Guilbault added, should create a positive impact for the message the committee is trying to spread. The police will also participate in the education process and announced starting on Sept. 6 members of the force will be knocking on doors informing residents about safe behaviours, being a good neighbour and the dangers of alcohol consumption. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students are an important part of the community and we want to ensure they have all the information needed to have fun and be a positive contributor to their neighbourhoods,â&#x20AC;? said acting police Supt.

A new way to fundraise Company pays schools to send in old phones Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A recycling company is aiming to make fundraising easier for school communities this year. CellCycle.ca is cellphone recycling company that pays non-profits, individuals and companies money for sending in their old phones and wireless devices. The company has already helped a number of schools across the country raise money by collecting and recycling old phones. “There was one in London, Ont., just back in May, that collected 300 BlackBerrys,” said Pat Hebert, founder of CellCycle.ca. “We gave them $10,000.” He said after reading the Metroland Special Report, Fundraising Fever, published in June, he wanted to let people know there is an alternative to the traditional fundraising events. “I was reading your article and I do realize how tough it is for non profits to raise money right now. There is definitely donor fatigue going on,” said

Hebert. “There’s lots of chocolate bars and cookies and all sorts of things that aren’t so good for us. There seems to be an absence of things that are totally free for a non-profit to do. “It’s really sad that parents are being saddled with this.” CellCycle.ca, which is based in Barrie, Ont., works by buying phones through the mail. “That phone sitting in the closet might still be worth something,” said Hebert, adding the company pays for the postage. “These are waste products really, but they have end of life value or they have reuse value.” The company also sells used phones and wireless devices. FUNDRAISER

Tamise academy French elementary school located in London, Ont. was looking to raise funds for its Food for Kids program, which helped about 15 families in the school community every week. One of the teachers “would have backpacks filled up with food every Friday with non perishables and send them home with students,” said Hebert. The school contacted him about raising funds by recycling old phones. The school collected 300 BlackBerrys that were in good

condition, raising $10,000 for the food program. “That was an inner-city school,” said Hebert. “It’s a very poor area of London. “It’s good for people to realize there are alternatives.” Hebert said he’s also helped schools in Nova Scotia, Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. One school in Calgary raised $6,000 by sending in old phones. “It’s weird how you get known in other parts of the country before you get known at home,” said Hebert, who started CellCycle.ca in 2009 after being laid off from an electronic recycling company. He was in charge of analyzing the waste streams and realized that “cellphones were one of those things that had a lot of residual value at the end of life.” The company generally collects around 10,000 phones a year, which they test to see how well they work and wipe all the data. “I’m hoping that we continue to grow this to the point that we’re helping lots of people,” said Hebert. “This is good for the environment, this is good for the schools or nonprofits…it’s good for students themselves to see that just because they’re done with it the item itself isn’t worthless. I just hope it continues and that we’re able to help a lot of people with it.”

PET OF THE WEEK

Tupelo is a neutered male, black and yellow brindle retriever and Labrador mix who is about three years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on August 4. Tupelo loves to spend time with his human companion. He is very shy but a slow, gentle approach can win him over. He has a wonderfully gentle personality and gets along well with adults and teens who can understand that he is a little timid of fast approaching people, animals and objects. Tupelo needs an owner who will help him overcome his timid nature and allow him to experience all the world has to offer. He needs lots of daily exercise like long walks to new places and a chance to explore different environments.

COTTON ID#A144671 Cotton is a neutered male, pure white Domestic Medium hair cat who lives up to his name – he’s a soft, cuddly ball of cotton! He’s about three years old and was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on June 14. Cotton is declawed on all four paws and deaf: he needs to remain an indoor-only cat to keep him safe. He loves to play with a large variety of toys and will need lots of toys to keep him occupied in his new home. He gets along with children of all ages but would rather not live with other cats. He has one gold eye and one blue eye.

HAVING ISSUES WITH THE LOCAL WILDLIFE? YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Buddy

As urban development encroaches on previously untamed areas, more humanwildlife conflicts result. People are frequently confronted with many wildlife species, including raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels, skunks, and a variety of birds.

These animals have largely managed to adapt well to our presence. Humans, on the other hand, are still mastering this living arrangement. It is important for people to understand the need for effective, lasting, and humane solutions to occasional conflicts with wildlife.

For large wildlife, such as deer, moose and bear, please call Ottawa Police Services at 613-236-1222. If a wild animal does not show any signs of injury, then it is best to leave it alone. Wildlife issues are temporary problems and there are solutions. It seems daunting, but if you work out a solution, you can make sure you never have this problem again. Property owners are responsible for dealing with their wildlife situation humanely and legally. There are solutions and tips available at www.ottawahumane.ca to get the animals to relocate on their own.

Please be advised that although you are only seeing one animal, it may not be alone. The birthing season runs from late February to early October, and the babies are helpless when first born and not yet able to leave their nest or den with mom. If you scare the mother away, she may abandon her young. It is critical not to trap young inside, as they will perish, possibly falling between walls and requiring expensive drywall removal and causing very bad odours if they die in inaccessible areas. Many birds fly into windows at this time of year. The sun is low in the sky and causes some unusual reflections. If a bird hits your window, confine the bird in a ventilated box, with a covered

hot water bottle in the bottom. The box should be closed, which helps slow down the bird’s metabolism, and placed in a warm area of the house that is isolated from people and pets. Leave the bird alone for one hour. After one hour, they can take the box outside and open it. It may take a few moments for the bird’s eyes to adjust to the light. If it flies away – perfect! The bird was simply stunned. If it does not fly away it needs care. Contact the Wild Bird Care Centre at 613-828-2849. If you have further questions about wild animals, you may contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext. 262, or send an email to ohs@ottawahumane.ca.

EMC news - The Carlington Community is rolling up its sleeves to create an improved Alexander Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see it be a bit better than it is,â&#x20AC;? said Marc Snelling, a Carlington resident involved in trying to adopt the park through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Adopt a Park program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I live pretty close to the park ... and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see a nice park in the future, in the long term.â&#x20AC;? Alexander Park is one of the more central parks in Carlington and is used by the neighbourhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community association for a variety of activities including the recent Carlington Cup, which is the neighbourhood shinny hockey

It is also home to a community centre where the Carlington Community Association meets regularly. As part of the revitalization, the association is organizing two clean-up campaigns throughout the year and will be the site of a mass tulip-bulb planting this fall as part of the assocationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carlington Tulip Initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got fed up with how things were getting,â&#x20AC;? said Snelling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a rash of grafďŹ ti, a lot of garbage, and I got fed up. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m speaking for myself, but for me, it was a mat-
