EMC news – A food bank in Alta Vista has been overwhelmed with a spike in demand for assistance coming from the community this year. The Heron Emergency Food Centre said it served 13,059 clients in 2009. In 2011, that number jumped to 16,381 clients, representing a 29 per cent increase. And the number of clients continues to rise, said Louisa Simms, executive co-ordinator of the food bank. “On average, we are now feeding 1,600 people per month,� she said. “Two years ago, the most we would serve a month was approximately 1,000 people.� “We are now up 600 people more per month that we are feeding,� said Simms. The food bank is struggling with meagre funding, said Simms, adding that it’s hard to see people go home without enough. Simms said dozens of people will once again gather outside St. Timothy’s Presbyterian Church, on Saturday, Sept. 22 for the Heron Emergency Food Centre’s annual five-kilometre walkathon fundraiser, Step Up and Step Out to Stop Hunger. “We are holding this walkathon to raise more money so that we can have the food last whole week,� she said. The money will help the food bank collect and buy food. See FOOD, page 3


Teachers rally at McGuinty’s office Even a heavy rainstorm couldn’t stop hundreds of teachers and their unions, as well as some students, from rallying outside Dalton McGuinty’s Ottawa office in Alta Vista on Sept.14, to express their anger at the passage of Bill 115. The controversial legislation freezes teachers’ wages for two years, slashes benefits and imposes a two-year strike ban. As a result of teachers withdrawing from extracurricular activities, 11 Ottawa public schools have failed to register for regular season play with the National Capital Athletic Association this year.

Ottawa students stage walk out protests Don’t put us in middle of teachers, government dispute: teens Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - A group of students at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School say they are tired of being put in the middle of a clash

between teachers’ unions and the provincial government. The teachers, in protest of Bill 115, the Liberal government’s legislation that freezes teacher wages, ends sick-day banking, and bans strikes for two years, were asked by their unions to cut back on extracurricular activities such as, hosting after school clubs or other student groups, as well as field trips. Ellise Troung, who is a Grade 11 student at Longfields and a member of the student council, said the sports teams are up and running, but the

drama club hasn’t started yet. Neither has the Best Buddies club – which helps provide mentorship for boys with autism. “Field trips have been rescheduled and everything is just kind of up in the air,� Troung said. Troung said she didn’t want students to pay the costs of the disagreement between the government and the teachers. “We just don’t want to be in the middle,� she said. Other protests have happened at Merivale High

School, John McCrae Secondary School, Cedarview Middle School and Sir Robert Borden Secondary School, something public school board trustee Donna Blackburn said was an interesting lesson in civics. “Obviously the situation is tough, but it’s heartening to see the kids involved in politics,� Blackburn said, adding her own daughter has started Grade 9 and is also missing out on some after-school activities.

Councillor proposes regal name for new Findlay Creek park â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have a long history with Queen Elizabeth IIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Steve Desroches Eddie Rwema

structure areas, a skateboard park, a boarded multipurpose hard-court area with a basketball hoop and multiple sports ďŹ elds. Eva Pigeon-Seguin, president of the Findlay Creek Community Association, said the proposed naming was a great opportunity to help recognize the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signiďŹ cance to the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would be a great honour for the Findlay Creek,â&#x20AC;? she said in a statement on Desrochesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; website.

Desroches added that naming of the new park would serve as a permanent commemoration of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worldwide celebrations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is ďŹ tting for a capital city such as Ottawa to have names that tie into our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage,â&#x20AC;? he said. He said the park is in the ďŹ nal stages of completion and residents are now enjoying some of the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amenities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some minor work that needs to be completed but I think now resi-


dents are able to utilize the play equipment structures,â&#x20AC;? said Desroches.


EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Findlay Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new central park may soon be crowned with a majestic name: Diamond Jubilee Park. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches pro-

posed the name to city council last week, saying it is a ďŹ tting tribute to the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size and scope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very special park and it deserves a very majestic name as I am proposing,â&#x20AC;? he said. The proposed name is taken from the Diamond Jubilee

of Queen Elizabeth II, a yearlong multinational celebration of the reign of the United Kingdomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monarch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital and we have a long history with Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family,â&#x20AC;? said Desroches. Construction of the central park started this spring and was expected to ďŹ nish before the end of the summer. Much of the work is already ďŹ nished, such as the construction of junior and senior play

Food bank seeing increasing number of people asking for help Continued from page 1

“We are finding it hard to keep our shelves full,” said Simms. In 2009, the centre had a goal of raising $5,000, but thanks to an overwhelming response from the community, they collected more than $19,000 that first year. Three years later, a funding gap remains and the demand for services is greater than ever. “A lot of people are coming in and are saying, I work two jobs and I still don’t have enough. The majority we are seeing is the working poor and they are struggling,” said Simms.

The greatest challenge to the centre according to Simms, is securing enough regular financial support to meet this skyrocketing demand. “I have been here seven years and this is the first year we have reached that number,” she said. The food bank hopes to raise at least $10,000 at this year’s walkathon. Their clients include a diverse group of the elderly, families, the unemployed and the working poor. Ian Giles is a recovering addict who benefits from the centre’s services. He said one of the things he doesn’t have to worry about in his day-to-

day life is where to obtain food, because he knows the centre can give him the basics he needs to survive. “I find it very important since it makes me focus more on myself and my recovery. I am just thankful to them,” said Giles. The Step Up and Step Out to Stop Hunger will be held at St. Timothy’s Presbyterian Church, 2400 Alta Vista Dr., on Sept. 22, starting at 9 a.m. For more information or to make a pledge, contact info@ or call 613-737-9090.

Heron Emergency Food Centre executive coordinator Louisa Simms, right, is helped by volunteer and client Ian Giles to stock food. Simms said a poor economy has made more and more people come to the food bank.

Number of first aid trainees low: poll EMC news - Recent polling by the Red Cross shows that nearly 40 per cent of Canadians say they have been in an emergency situation where they have had to perform first aid, however, only 18 per cent are currently certified. The Canadian Red Cross is calling on all Canadians to ensure they have the skills needed

to save lives when an emergency happens. While many people believe first aid is usually administered on strangers, polling shows that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians who have had to provide first aid did so to help a family member. There is a significant gap between Canadians’ perception of

the importance of taking a first aid course and actually taking one. Although nearly 98 per cent of Canadians say knowing how to perform first aid is important, 82 per cent have not taken a first aid course within the last three years. For more information or to find a course near you, visit

Strandherd-Armstrong bridge on track: Coun. Desroches

EMC news – The Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge remains on track to open in August 2013, said GloucesterSouth Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches. Work on the bridge started up again this summer, after the city hired a new contractor to replace ConCreate USL, which went into receivership last spring. “The bridge is being built on the east shore in Riverside South and will be moved into place over the river this coming winter,” said Desroches. The bridge, which is to span the Rideau River connecting Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven to Earl Armstrong Road in Riverside South, was originally slated to be completed in the spring of this year. In 2010, the city and both provincial and federal levels of government set aside a total of $48 million, shared equally between all three, for the construction of the bridge. In his website updates, Desroches said he was pleased to report that work continues to progress on the StrandherdArmstrong. “As part of this important launching process, work continues to complete the erection components on both the shore and over the river. At this time, more than half of

the assembly components are now complete.” He added that the new contractor is engaged, the suppliers are working diligently, pieces are arriving on a regular basis and the welding teams have been active. “Work is progressing. It is a priority for me and it’s the number one question I get from residents in the ward. “Welding of the arches is ongoing and arch pieces continue to arrive at the site as needed. The north steel deck is near completion and the south steel deck will commence work thereafter. After the decks and arches are complete, work will begin to install the stay cables.” Desroches said he remains committed and focused on completing the project. “We have to put the past behind us and focus on getting the job done,” he said. “I am working closely with city officials to ensure the project continues to move forward and is completed as quickly as possible and to the highest quality and standards.” In June, the city announced that its bonding company had named Horseshoe Hill Construction Inc. – made up of former ConCreate employees – to complete the project. The contractor’s first priority will be to draft a completion schedule, to be delivered in the next few weeks.


The Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge is on schedule to open next summer says Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches.

‘It’s good to see kids from my zone informed’: trustee Students at Ottawa public schools wear team colours at protests across city Continued from page 1

Blackburn added she is proud that some of the students to speak about the labour action have been from her zone. “It’s good to see kids from my zone informed about the issue,” she said. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod described the walkouts as the children protesting the teachers who were protesting the government. “It’s quite a situation,” she said, adding that the province’s economic climate calls for a broad public sector wage freeze. “Obviously, it’s not something we want to do, but it was necessary with the province facing a $30-billion deficit,” she said, adding that blanket legislation dealing with all public sector groups may have been more effective than targeting groups like teachers and doctors directly.

MacLeod, who also serves as the provincial education critic, said she was proud of the students in Nepean Carleton for standing up for themselves. “It’s good to see the kids involved,” she said. But for Sir Robert Borden student council co-chair Caroline Esmonde-White the protests are about much more than a civics lesson. She said as a student in Grade 12, extracurricular activities are important as the kids get ready to begin their applications to university. She said the protest held by students wearing their team colours on Sept. 13 was to promote awareness and make sure students’ views didn’t get lost in the negotiations. “It’s pretty early in the year, but we normally would have had information sessions about our cross country club and our field hockey would have started up,” she said,

adding the staff and administration at the school were supportive of their efforts. “It was a peaceful protest and they were proud to have a group of dedicated students,” Esmonde-White said. Student protests were expected to continue on Sept. 17, and teachers staged their own protest on Sept. 14 in front of Premier Dalton McGuinty’s constituency office in Ottawa south. “High school memories don’t come from solving for ‘x’ in math,” Jaedie Sansom, a Grade 11 student at Longfields, said. “They come from staying late working on a play, or a teacher that helped you through some problem after school.”

Greely man lighting the night for leukemia cure Emma Jackson


Peleshok was 41 when he first experienced symptoms of the leukemia he would spend four months fighting. At the end of August 2008, he was on vacation with his partner in Lake George. He woke up that Sunday with some blood on his pillow, and figured he had bit his cheek during the night. The following week, he noticed bruises on the backs of his legs that kept growing and darkening. By Friday, he was so weak he could hardly help his neighbour move some unwanted items out of his garage. “It was all I could do to carry little things. I chalked it

up to being fat, old and out of shape,” he laughed. That night, he was cooking dinner for his twin daughters, who were celebrating their sweet 16. He could hardly stand. Despite his protests, his family took him to the emergency ward and he was admitted almost immediately. By Saturday night – and after an enormous needle had been drilled into his hip for a bone marrow sample, the most agonizing pain he had ever felt – Peleshok received the news that he had acute promyelocytic leukemia. Doctors later told him that if he had waited until his scheduled appointment the following Tuesday, he would have been dead. While the news was difficult to hear, Peleshok said his doctor saved him when he told him that his treatment and recovery would be determined by his attitude. Peleshok said he firmly believes that his successful recovery was also influenced by a book he read about three months before his diagnosis, called The Last Lecture. It was written by a professor dying of cancer, who urged others to make their dreams realities. “If I hadn’t read that book a month or two before, I’d be dead,” he said. Peleshok celebrated his recovery later in 2009 when he married his second wife, and he now has a young toddler at home. He said his experience has led him to help others beat the disease as well. “I’ve been given this disease for some reason and I’d like to give back,” he said.

Craig Peleshok was diagnosed with leukemia in 2008, and now is the corporate walk chairman for the Ottawa Light the Night walk for cancer research on Oct. 13.


EMC news - A Greely cancer survivor is spearheading this year’s Light the Night walk to find a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers. Craig Peleshok was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia in September 2008, and four years later he is trying to end the cycle of cancer forever. While recovering from his third and final round of chemotherapy in January 2009, Peleshok saw a commercial for Montreal’s Light the Night five-kilometre walk, which is one of many organized across the country by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. He called the information line to ask when Ottawa’s walk would take place, and discovered the capital didn’t have one. “For a year I tried to get a walk to Ottawa,” he said. Organizers told him it was too much work, that it was very difficult to start such an event in a big city. But after much persistence, Peleshok finally succeeded in bringing the event to Ottawa. In October 2010, Ottawa’s first Light the Night event took place downtown – and was more successful than Peleshok could have dreamed. “We expected to have 500 walkers and to raise $50,000. We got 1,500 walkers and raised $250,000,” he said. In 2011, Peleshok took on the role of corporate walk chairman to attract sponsors and partnerships. That year, more than 3,000 walkers raised $355,000. Peleshok hopes this year’s walk on Saturday, Oct. 13 will attract 4,000 walkers and half a mil-

lion dollars in fundraising. And it’s on track: already the walk has twice the amount of teams registered compared to this time last year, and is on its way to raising thousands more dollars for leukemia and lymphoma research than previous years. The event will begin at the Marion Dewar Plaza outside city hall. Participants will walk to Pretoria Bridge and back (provided there aren’t thousands more people than expected, in which case a back-up route will be used) and the walkers will celebrate with entertainment and communion.

EMC news - Error screens and backlogs during swimming registration on the city’s website could be a thing of the past thanks to a new platform for The city is launching the full new version of on Nov. 19 and the site will be built on an open-source platform called Drupal. The content management system is more flexible, so it will enable the city to “scale up” the capacity of the website to respond to peaks in demand, such as during online recreation registration that so often leaves frustrated parents refreshing their Internet browsers, information technology subcommittee chairman Coun. Tim Tierney said. Ottawa will become one of

the largest Canadian cities to use open-source technology, joining the likes of the White House, Statistics Canada, the Department of National Defence and Transport Canada. “It’s the new gold standard,” said Tierney, the councillor for Beacon Hill-Cyrville Ward. Since open source technology relies on a community of people to develop and share tools, Ottawa is well positioned because so many federal departments based in the city are already using Drupal. In addition to making the site more flexible and able to respond to the needs of both the city and users, the other benefits will be a reduction in licensing maintenance costs. The new site will come with a mobile version, which is built-in with Drupal. There will also be an option to personalize the website for individual users; for instance, you could create a profile with services you use on the city’s website and personalize the features that show up when you log in to

We must keep Terry Fox’s dream alive


f you look up the word “hope” in the dictionary, you’ll probably find a photograph of Terry Fox. Or at least you should. Terry Fox was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer and had his leg amputated above the knee – an age when most of us are starting our lives: going to university, beginning a career, falling in love for the first time. He died at the age of 22. In those four short years,

Fox managed to inspire generations of his countrymen. He made us learn to hope in the face of an awful disease that has touched all our lives. He taught us to fight back no matter what the odds. When Fox learned he had cancer he decided to run a Marathon of Hope across Canada. His goal was to raise enough money to discover a cure for cancer. Starting in April 1980, Fox started his run by dipping his artificial leg in the Atlantic

Ocean in St John’s, NL. He ran 42 kilometres a day, the equivalent of a full marathon. On Sept. 1, 1980, after running for 143 days and 5, 373 kilometres, Terry was forced to stop his Marathon of Hope outside of Thunder Bay, Ont.. The cancer had spread to his lungs. On June 28, 1981, Fox died. But his memory lives on in the hearts and minds of generations of Canadians, who

continue his battle every year by holding Terry Fox Runs across the country. The runs have raised hundreds of millions of dollars and funded numerous advancements in cancer research, saving countless lives. But a cure is yet to be found. This year, Fox’s brother, Fred Fox, visited the campus of Carleton of University, urging the students to keep Terry’s dream alive. Carleton is one of eight Ca-

nadian universities who have joined Terry’s College and University Student Engagement (CAUSE). The colleges and universities have committed to holding a major campus event that includes runs and other fundraisers with all proceeds going to the Terry Fox Foundation. Most communities across Canada planned to hold their annual runs on Sunday, Sept. 16, including an Ottawa run at Carleton University. Kanata and Stittsville were

scheduled to hold their annual Terry Fox Run on Sept. 16, an event that usually attracts hundred of west end runners. The Kanata/Stittsville run has raised $550,000 since it first started in 1989. Last year, Constance Bay held its first Terry Fox Run, attracting 75 runners and raising more than $4,400 for cancer research. Ottawa Hospital Research Institute’s John Bell said that while great strides have been made in cancer research over the past 30 years, there is still much more yet to be done. We must continue to keep Terry’s dream alive – one step at a time.


You too can be a Waste Explorer CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


f you don’t automatically throw out everything that shows up in your mailbox, you will have seen the document that announces a major change in your life. As of the end of next month your garbage is only going to be picked up every two weeks. Although there was considerable debate about this at city hall, the circular in your mailbox reflects that hardly at all. “Important changes are coming,” it begins, but all it contains by way of explanation is a cryptic little note at the bottom: “Think about it …,” it says. “It all has to go somewhere.” This is true, probably, as is: “It all has to go sometime,” which is the issue at hand. So what are we to make of it, the fact that we go from garbage pickup every week to garbage pickup every other? The most dramatic interpretation is that Ottawa has become a Third World city. In many parts of the world, garbage pickup every week can only be dreamed about, the key to improved sanitation and public health. Yet here is Ottawa, going the other way. To support this interpretation we can look at many other areas in which Canada, through the culture of cutback, has descended from previous heights. If, on the other hand, you are the kind of person who sees the glass as half full, you will have a completely different take. Less frequent garbage pickup means that garbage needs to be picked up less frequently, which means that there is less of it. This encouraging theory might be difficult to prove empirically, but the anecdotal evidence is there. You know it when you look down your street on garbage night and notice that some

people are putting out no garbage cans at all. None. Everything they need to throw out is on one of the recycling containers, black, blue and green. We salute them, although we do wonder what they do with all that plastic packaging. Maybe they don’t buy anything wrapped in plastic. There’s a challenge. Is it possible that we have been so welleducated in the philosophy of recycling that we don’t need to put anything at all in the garbage can? Have we bought in so completely to the recycling message that we have made garbage obsolete? If so, it may be because recycling has been made so easy for us. We don’t need to buy the recycling boxes; they are delivered to our doors. Filling them is no problem, nor is sorting them. Neither effort nor thought is required. It is too bad that no one one has thought of ways to make it easy for us to be as virtuous in other areas. We could use some help cleaning up after our pets, giving more support to charities and merging from three lanes into two on the Queensway. Meanwhile, we don’t know whether to be comforted or not by the notion that it all has to go somewhere. The city’s website page on recycling provides something called a Waste Explorer – maybe not the most attractive concept when you think about it, but a handy way to tackle those difficult which-box-is-which questions. For example, the Waste Explorer will tell you that alfalfa sprouts go in the green bin, that artificial plants go in the regular garbage, as do bicycle tires, as do rubber wine corks; wooden orange crates go in the regular garbage, but wood chips go in the green bin; some items, such as beer kegs are identified as having “multiple options” but when you click on that you are told that multiple options means take them back to the beer store. A few paragraphs ago we thought that recycling was simple. Now we’re not so sure. At least we only have to think about the garbage every other week, when we put out our wooden orange crates.

Why men don’t breastfeed


y husband is on parental leave. With me working full-time, an infant, and two boys to look after, he spends days making food, doing dishes and folding laundry. And when he’s not doing that, and even when he is, he can be found rocking the baby. He’s finding it a little frustrating, especially because he has a list of “pat leave reno projects” he’d like to be doing instead. “I cannot use power tools; I cannot use chemicals; I cannot lift heavy things,” he moaned to me the other day. I was on coffee break between conference calls and he had the baby in a frontcarrier. “I’ve got some digging to do in the garden. How do you do that with a baby attached to you? I managed

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse to do laundry and hang stuff on the clothesline, but other than that I’ve done nothing. I cannot go all day/all week like this. I’m not getting anything done and it’s already Wednesday. I keep getting interrupted.” It’s a lament familiar to many similarly industrious women. And it got me thinking about women, like me, who are finding mothering – particularly breastfeeding – isn’t conducive to my modern, fast-paced life as a career woman. I have many friends – also busy, industrious career

women – who consider this folly. “Of course you can breastfeed and work hard at your job,” they say, which only makes me feel inferior. If you’re a woman in a salaried job on maternity leave with a top-up and haven’t had any difficulties getting breastfeeding established into a routine, that may be true. I’m not saying you’re not working your butt off on the home front, but you’re also not putting on suits to attend meetings, doing conference calls, writing about things on very little sleep,

managing outsourced work, marketing a business and trying to pump milk every three hours around the clock. These are all things I began doing when my baby was five days old. And they are all things that, in my opinion, cannot be done in two-hour snippets. Two-hour snippets? Now she’s exaggerating, you’re thinking. After all, babies only feed six, maybe eight, times in 24 hours. Okay, well, let’s say it’s eight. Let’s just say I take a pause out of my work day every three hours to feed the baby. But then, let’s say the baby takes 45 minutes to feed. In between suckling, she needs to be burped, changed and rocked. That takes another 20 minutes or so. And then there’s the pumping. That leaves just over an hour from the end of one feed to the beginning of the next. And frankly, that’s not enough time for any woman to run a full-time business. And if I have to wake up ev-

ery 90 minutes at night, I’m a walking zombie, which isn’t going to make me very marketable to my clients. People have built up this unrealistic notion that we should all be able to succeed as career women while at the same time returning to traditional mothering concepts – you know, breastfeeding, using cloth diapers, making homemade baby food and dedicating every waking (and non-waking) hour to baby. Somehow, people – with a straight face – tout this as a return to a golden age of mothering. But frankly, at no point in history have women done all of the above. For one thing, children in the past would be left to cry in their cribs, while mother attended to her duties. For another, depending on her “class,” a woman would very likely have had at least one servant or a live-in female relative to assist her in the home. Some may have even had wet nurses, as was common – albeit dangerous

– practice in France for many decades. And women certainly wouldn’t have done these things while holding down a job outside the home. As for the argument about women delivering babies in rice fields and continuing with their work immediately: irrelevant. My point is this. We’re trying to do it all. We’re trying to exist in a “man’s world” and at the same time do all the things that “traditional” mothers have mythically done. But frankly, this is bunk. If we’re privileged enough, we get to pick and choose what gets outsourced to make it all work. For a woman who works full-time – by choice or by necessity—an activity that takes eight hours a day, like nursing an infant, just may not fit into her busy schedule. Frankly, there’s a reason men don’t breastfeed. And it has nothing to do with lactation.

Ottawa Community Housing tenants receive scholarship awards Eddie Rwema

EMC news – Liz Diaz, a single mother of two from Greenboro was one of the 10 recipients of the 2012 Ron Larkin Scholarship Awards presented by the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation (OCH). The awards, each in the amount of $1,000, were presented on Sept. 13 to 10 OCH residents who are enrolled in their first year of post secondary education and who have contributed extensively to the community through volunteerism. The scholarship empowers recipients to break through the cycle of poverty by pursuing post secondary education. “I am so excited and motivated even more,” said Diaz, who is registered in social work at Carleton University while at the same time volunteering at Extendicare Laurier Manor Seniors Residence. The Ron Larkin Scholarship Fund was established in 2008 by the OCH board of directors in recognition of Larkin’s contribution to the organization, and to provide scholarships for post secondary students resid-

Curvy Girls scoliosis group a first of its kind

Listening, Learning and Leading


Laura Mueller

EMC news - Decked out in pink and proud, Ottawa’s Curvy Girls celebrated one year of being the only scoliosis support group of its kind in Canada on Sept. 16. The monthly support group proudly displayed what it means to be a “cuvy girl” in a Golden Triangle church basement, revealing what its like to live with a spine curvature. Scoliosis is no longer screened for in Canada, but three to five per cent of children will be diagnosed with scoliosis, and one to three per cent of those children – mostly girls – will require treatment with a back brace. The technology used to make the braces hasn’t really changed for half a century, said Joe O’Brien, president of the National Scoliosis Foundation, and that’s what makes Curvy Girls so much more important than a regular support group. The groups, the first of which was founded in the state of New York in 2006, show girls they are not alone and increase the likelihood that girls will use their braces properly and stay committed to exercises that can help stop the progression of the deforming curve in their spines. “There is nothing more exciting than this group,” said O’Brien, who is himself a scoliosis patient and has been heavily involved in scoliosis organizations and research his entire life. “That bonding, that

Welcome to the New School Year September is an exciting time of year. It is a time of renewal, a time of new beginnings, and a time to savour every single day when the sun is shining and summer is still with us. As my teenage daughters left for school on September 4, I remembered the sense of excitement and nervous anticipation I felt about returning to school. What will my classes and teachers be like? Will I make new friends?

Renewal in River Zone Change is in the air this September in River Zone. We welcome two new Principals in our schools - Tammy McCormack at General Vanier and Andrew Canham at Carleton Heights. They both bring a wealth of experience with them and they are excited to be in our schools. We say goodbye and a big thanks to Charlotte Patton who has retired, and Jim Taylor who has moved to Glashan Public School. Carleton Heights is providing full day kindergarten for the first time this year, and joins General Vanier and W.E. Gowling in being able to offer this enriching educational environment for our youngest students. Together with its growing middle French immersion program, Carleton Heights is expanding its offerings to a lively multicultural student body.

A Challenging New Year As I write this article, during the second week of school, other changes are also taking place. The Ontario Government’s new Bill 115 was passed in the Legislature. This Bill effectively cuts teachers’ salaries and benefits, and stops collective bargaining between the Provincial Government and the teachers’ unions. The Bill also prevents teachers from using the usual means for protesting the imposition of this Bill. The Bill calls on School Boards to negotiate agreements with its unions before December 31, 2012. This will be challenging given that Bill 115 has already imposed major conditions that are normally part of the bargaining process. The reaction to this legislation varies from school to school across the District. As I write this article on September 14, there is little or no change in some schools. In others, many teachers have stated they will no longer be volunteering their time to run sports teams and clubs, and these activities have been suspended. On September 14, many teachers demonstrated in front of the Premier’s constituency office in Ottawa. Students have also held demonstrations, some at the Premier’s constituency office. As a mother and a Trustee, there is a silver lining to these developments. I have been impressed by the mutual respect and understanding that is evident amongst teachers, administration and students, and this is very evident in our schools in River Zone. What we are seeing is a democratic debate and expression of views in the context of a difficult and emotional environment. Before becoming a Trustee, I spent 15 years as the CEO of a national public policy organization that provided policy advice to all levels of government. My Board consisted of Deputy Ministers, business and labour leaders and senior members of the education community. Our mission was to foster better understanding and cooperation amongst these diverse groups and to reach consensus on public policy issues. We believed in mutual respect, recognition of legitimate differences and the importance of collective bargaining which is enshrined in Canada’s Bill of Rights in our Constitution. By the time you read this article, the situation in our schools may have evolved further. Given the variation amongst schools, I would encourage parents and guardians to stay in touch with your children’s Principals, and to check the Board’s website at for further information.

Laureen Harper, wife of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, left, speaks with Leah Stoltz, a Long Island, N.Y. resident who founded the original Curvy Girls group in 2006. any other condition or disease, sharing knowledge is critical to successful scoliosis treatment, O’Brien said. That’s because the condition is “idiopathic,” meaning it cannot be traced to one cause. Everyone’s scoliosis is different and is caused by a different genetic or environmental trigger, and that’s not something the medical profession is well-equipped to deal with. All scoliosis patients tend to be treated the same way, whereas one girl’s condition might react very differently to a type of treatment than another girl. Furthermore, each girl might have several different doctors – a family doctor, chiropractor, physiotherapist and more – telling her to do different things.

“We have the most confused patient community out there, and it’s because of the doctors we see,” O’Brien said. “It adds to our burden.” Leah Stoltz of Long Island, N.Y., was well aware of that burden when she founded Curvy Girls in 2006. Soon after, other girls followed suit and 32 groups sprung up across the United States. The Ottawa chapter was the first group to make the movement international. “Scoliosis is two parts: the physical and the emotional. The emotional part often gets overlooked,” Stoltz said. “We are the emotional brace.” Curvy Girls Ottawa can be found on Facebook or at www.curvygirlsscoliosis. com/groups/ottawa-ca.html.

support, is very powerful.” Danielle Denisko, who founded the Ottawa chapter, said she wanted the group to give girls a way to feel confident and fit in with their peers. At a time when teens are already trying to fit in, dealing with something that makes them feel different, dealing with the stress of having to wear a bulky back brace is challenging, she said. “We started this initiative to make sure that one day, coast to coast, everyone would know what scoliosis is and no one would have to feel alone,” said Denisko, who is from Barrhaven. Laureen Harper, wife of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, came out to lend her support to the girls. “I just want to support all the girls here in Ottawa. I think this is a great idea,” Harper said. “It’s just very helpful for the girls with scoliosis to meet and trade secrets … nobody ever likes to feel alone.” Such support is particularly important for girls who must undergo surgery (often to fuse the spine) to halt the advance of the curvature in extreme cases. Denisko and seven other girls – and their parents – first met last September and there are more than 16 girls in the group now. Local physiotherapist Andrea Lebel helped found the group because she saw a need for her patients to share information and support each other. More so than with almost

Walk to raise funds for elderly care at St. Pat’s Home Eddie Rwema


St. Patrick’s Home in Riverside Park is recruiting walkers to participate in its upcoming fundraiser on Sept. 22. “We really do need people to support the walk to make sure that we can continue to provide what we need for the residents,” she said. The home provides outreach services to seniors living in their own homes, meals-onwheels and other supportive services. In 2010, the home announced plans to build a 288-bed facility next to the current building. “We are pleased to an-

nounce that construction of the new St. Patrick’s Home is on pace, on budget, and on time for our residents to move in November 2013. “We are looking forward to providing our local Ottawa community with a brand new Home while retaining the special Spirit of St. Pat’s.” Resident needs have grown more complex since St. Pat’s was originally constructed in the early 1960s.


Increasingly, the home is addressing critical care issues in a building not originally designed for this purpose. “The features of our new home will ensure that the complex care needs of our current, and future residents will be addressed more comprehensively,” said a statement from St. Pat’s Home. For more information, to donate prizes, or to volunteer, email or call 613-260-2738.


EMC news – A fundraising walk to support urgent and critical care for residents at St. Patrick’s Home in Riverside Park is now registering participants. The Sept. 22 event gives walkers the option of completing a one- or three-kilometre course. The fundraiser aims to raise more than $8,000. Previously, Walk the Block fundraising has helped purchase shower safety supplies, furniture for the Resident Computer Corner and has supported the Hearing Assistance Program as well as many other projects. “The money from the walk is crucial because it will allow us to buy additional supplies and subsidize recreation and entertainment opportunities for the residents,” said Jessie-Lee Wallace, fundraising officer. The 147-year-old St. Patrick’s Home was founded by the Grey Sisters in 1865. Since then, it has supported generations of seniors and others in need of care. St. Patrick’s home has more than 290 volunteers who work and provide much needed care for the elders. Previously the walk has raised more than $70,000 and Wallace said support from the community has been strong.

Road widening threatens heritage homes Michelle Nash



EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Some residents in Lowertown do not want to choose between saving heritage homes and making room for bicycle lanes. Owned by the National Capital Commission, 277, 275, 279 and 273 Sussex Dr. are scheduled to be demolished to make way for a major construction project which includes widening of the road and adding cycling lanes. The city-led project is seeking approval for demolition control at the Ottawa built heritage advisory committee on Sept. 20. Lowertown residents, including heritage and development committee chairwoman Nancy Miller Chenier, came out to the Lowertown Community Association on Sept. 10 to seek support and information from their city councillor on the topic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those houses are in a designated heritage district, with history and Lowertown stories attached to them,â&#x20AC;? said Miller Chenier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would like the houses to be contained and we would like Coun. Fleury to support us.â&#x20AC;? So far, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who because of a prior commitment did not make it to the Monday evening meeting, has not sided with the community on the issue. In an earlier Ottawa-East EMC interview with the councillor, Fleury stated he is waiting for an ofďŹ cial decision from Ottawa built heritage advisory committee on the value of the buildings on Sussex Drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are categories that deďŹ ne every house,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My simple understanding about those houses is that, yes, they are in the district, but they are category three. Category three is something

(where) they are part of the district, in of itself, but they are not heritage piece.â&#x20AC;? Fleury does not call himself a heritage expert saying he puts his trust in city heritage staff to state the value of the homes. A category three building is a structure located in a heritage district that would not merit individual heritage designation, according to the cultural heritage impact statement, which will be presented at the advisory committee meeting. The report also points out the guidelines in the Lowertown West Heritage Conservation District Plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Structures deemed not to have heritage signiďŹ cance may be considered for demolition, if an appropriate replacement structure is proposed,â&#x20AC;? states the plan. Furthermore, the councillor said the main reason for the road widening is to add bicycle lanes to the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both the community, the NCC and the city all agree there is a need to place cycling lanes and wider sidewalks on the street,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. Some residents do not ďŹ nd it that simple and do not necessarily believe the widening is to beneďŹ t pedestrians and cyclists ďŹ rst and foremost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are accommodating the car ďŹ rst. If the road is busy, pedestrians and cyclists will feel less comfortable to use the busy street,â&#x20AC;? said Lowertown resident Sylvie Grenier. Liz Bernstein, vice-president of the Lowertown Community Association, agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a false dichotomy that we have to choose between heritage and cyclists,â&#x20AC;? Bernstein said. When the Ottawa-East EMC reported about the proposed demolition in April, city infrastructure services manager for the east, Ziad Ghadban, said


Lowertownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage and development committee have affectionately called Adrienne Clarkson, Lowertownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first governor general because Clarkson arrived in Canada and moved into 275 Sussex Dr. The home, including three others may be demolished to make room for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to widen the road. the project would not be able to go ahead as designed without the demolition of these buildings. Ghadban said the city needs to correct the curve and alignment of Sussex Drive between the Royal Canadian Mint and Boteler Street to allow for 1.5kilometres of safe cycling lanes in both directions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dedicated cycling lanes would not be possible without the realignment,â&#x20AC;? he said. The association has requested for the homes to be either moved further back from the road or relocated to another property within the heritage district to meet the needs of both the road-widening project and the conservation of the district. Fleury said the options of moving the houses or looking at other options was up to the owners of the homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From my perspective, the angle of keeping the houses, moving those buildings, and looking at the options needed to be addressed at their board (the NCC board),â&#x20AC;? Fleury said.

The councillor said he has to trust in the expertise of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless there is something that is way off the mark here, but I have to trust that our heritage staff are able to provide good advice or submit a report about those houses. The built heritage advisory committee will meet to discuss the project in the Colonel By room at city hall on Sept. 20, starting at 6 p.m. Fleury said he will attend the meeting. Residents can sign up in advance to speak at the meeting by calling Kelly Sammon at 613-580-2424 ext. 16875 or emailing her at Residents can also sign up at the meeting. If residents and city staff do not see eye to eye with the decision, Fleury indicated he would set up a meeting to discuss concerns further. If passed at the built heritage committee, the application would still need approval from the planning committee and city council.

Activities group looking for new members Michelle Nash

EMC news – The Community Activities Group in Old Ottawa East is looking for enthusiastic residents to join its board of directors this fall. The Old Ottawa East group organizes everything from summer barbecues to sports, exercise classes and after-school activities. Claire Farid, chairwoman of the board of directors, is inviting anyone in the community interested in participating with the group a chance to sit on the board. “Homemade cookies, the

occasional glass of wine with friends and neighbors, lots of laughter and the satisfaction of contributing to my community – in a nutshell that describes my experience as a member of the board of the Community Activities Group (CAG),” Farid said. “CAG is looking for new board members; it’s a great way to get involved and you may just have fun doing it.” Farid joined the board four years ago because she wanted to give back to her community and help improve programming for children and adults in the community. The board of directors

help provide governance and oversight and works with the group’s executive director, Carol Workun, on topics such as strategic planning. When it comes to finding new members, the board is interested in finding parents and residents who have experience to offer. “We are interested in people with various skill sets. The most important attribute we are looking for is a desire to contribute to our community,” she said.

The board also has a treasurer and secretary and committees include communications, volunteer recruitment and fundraising. Board members must fill a two-year term. Board meetings are held seven times a year and begin at 7 p.m. at the fieldhouse in Brantwood Park.

Stepping inside a Dymon facility, you will quickly realize that Dymon Self Storage is not your traditional type of storage business. “Before the arrival of Dymon, self storage in Ottawa was really nothing more than single storey buildings with garage doors. These facilities were typically located in industrial parks or rural locations, that offered minimal security, no climate or humidity controls, and there was very little focus on customer service,” explains Steve Creighton. “We recognized there was a demand for quality storage in Ottawa, but there was virtually nothing available”. Dymon quickly recognized a business opportunity, but wanted to create a unique “made in Ottawa” solution. Before getting started back in 2006, Dymon did extensive research across the U.S. and Canada by visiting dozens of facilities, and quickly determined the attributes of the best performing facilities across North America. Taking these ideas and introducing a few unique offerings of its own, Dymon put together a “best of breed” business model. Arguably, right here in Ottawa Dymon has built the very best that self storage has to offer anywhere in the world. “At the end of the day, your stuff is likely better off stored with Dymon than at your home or business” adds Creighton. 14

Ottawa South EMC - Thursday, September 20, 2012

From the outside, Dymon’s facilities are architecturally attractive and don’t look anything like storage buildings. “We have moved self storage into the mainstream by locating our facilities in easy to access, highly visible sites, usually adjacent to big box retail” says Creighton, “and with our attractive exterior look we wanted the marketplace to understand that we represented a new and totally different storage solution”.

should drop by the facilities just to see their unique box displays! And the list goes on and on.


With everything that Dymon has to offer, is it any wonder that Dymon Self Storage has taken the Ottawa market by storm? Dymon’s first facility on Coventry Road opened in 2006 and filled in just 5 months, and has remained full ever since. And Dymon’s Coventry facility was no flash-in-the-pan – Dymon’s second location at Prince of Wales and Hunt Club was filled in only 6 months. Each

Dymon’s facilities have many distinctive features that differentiate them from anything else in the Ottawa marketplace. By integrating leading technologies, Dymon has created the safest and most convenient way to store your excess stuff. Starting with its complete and total humidity and climate controlled environment, Dymon’s facilities ensure no mould, mildew or bugs. Its advanced security features ensure your possessions are safe – besides having extended retail hours, Dymon also has a 24/7 Customer Service Command Center which monitors all of its facilities with personnel who can respond to customer issues at anytime, day or night. Dymon’s unique drive through bays (which are like airport hangars) provide complete protection from the weather and allow you to load and unload your stuff in comfort. Dymon even offers a free truck and driver at the time of movein for your added convenience, taking the hassle away of renting and driving a large truck. Dymon’s facilities have luxury boardrooms, mini-offices, as well as a vault and mailbox service. And in a short period of time, Dymon has become a leading retailer of boxes and moving supplies – you

But perhaps Dymon’s biggest asset is its relentless focus on delivering an exceptional customer experience. “Our highly trained staff regularly go above and beyond to help our customers deal with the stress of moving and storage,” says Creighton. “And time and time again we receive compliments on how helpful and professional our staff are.”



any people are also taking notice of Dymon’s latest facility under construction on Carling at the Queensway. “We are really excited about our Carling site,” offers Steve Creighton, Senior Vice President with Dymon, “it is going to be our flagship facility with our head office located on the top floor. We have some new outstanding features that are going to make this our best facility yet.” Dymon’s next facility will be on Greenbank at Hunt Club, and then another six facilities planned for Ottawa. is its latest environmentally focused business that offers customers the opportunity to rent or buy eco-friendly storage bins ideally suited for moving and storage. “This is an incredibly convenient service for our customers,” says Jonathon Dicker, Regional Manager at Dymon, “renting the eco-friendly storage bins is cheaper than buying traditional cardboard boxes and includes free delivery and pick-up.”

subsequent facility has also experienced a rapid fill. Dymon’s Kanata Centrum facility, adjacent to Canadian Tire, is the largest self storage facility in Canada, and is already half full after having just opened at the end of 2011. Pretty impressive stuff when you realize the Kanata facility is twice as large as their Coventry facility! To put this all in perspective, a facility the size of Dymon’s Kanata location would ordinarily take up to 36–48 months to fill in the US.

SO WHO IS YOUR TYPICAL DYMON CUSTOMER? The reasons why people need storage are endless. For example, people selling their homes use Dymon. It has been proven that a decluttered, well staged home will sell more quickly and at a higher price. Dymon is also great if you are downsizing or if you simply have too much stuff and need to make room in your home. Many customers also use Dymon to store their possessions while their homes are undergoing renovations, or to clear out their garage in the fall to make room for their cars. Interestingly, the majority of Dymon’s customers are women. According to Creighton, “Women are the primary decision maker when it comes to storage, so we have taken particular care to design our facilities to be attractive to the female consumer.” Dymon does this by its highly focused customer service, security, convenient access, and ultra clean facilities – all factors many women demand.

“Women appreciate the quality that Dymon offers – they know their stuff will be safe and secure.” Dymon’s storage facilities are also very attractive to business operators. With free on-site boardrooms, a parcel acceptance service, and flexible yet affordable storage leasing options, Dymon offers the perfect solution for a variety of businesses. “Currently about 25% of each facility is made up of commercial customers,” reports Creighton. “Dymon is perfect for business to store bankers’ boxes, excess merchandise, spare office furniture or work equipment, and seasonal inventory. We even have some business customers who use their storage unit as their own mini-warehouse instead of renting a larger building with much higher fixed overhead.” This fall, Dymon is also preparing to launch a new convenient document storage, retrieval and destruction business ideally suited for all types of business. “These additional services that will be offered to our customers represent another natural evolution of our business as we continue to serve our business customers better,” concludes Creighton. Dymon is certainly not prepared to rest on its laurels and existing business successes. “We are continually introducing new services and products to improve what Dymon has to offer,” says Creighton “and we continue to listen to our customers for new ideas on what they want to see from us”.

Dymon even assists you if you want to sell any of your stuff. offers its customers the chance to sell things in a totally secure and convenient fashion. Dymon will photograph, describe and upload items to its website where potential buyers can view them or they can drop down to the facility and have a look. And just this month introduced its new offer/ counter offer system where buyers and sellers can negotiate by e-mail, totally anonymously. The new process is fun, simple, and effective. When items are sold, Dymon issues a cheque to the customer, who doesn’t even have to know who bought the item. “Many Dymon customers were saying they wanted to sell some of their excess stuff, but they were frustrated that there weren’t really many convenient sales options available to them,” says’s Manager, Peter Kalil “so we developed our on-line marketplace as a safe, convenient, hassle-free way for customers to sell and buy stuff.”

You should take the time to drop by one of Dymon’s convenient locations across the City – they really are unlike anything you have ever seen before. If you have too much stuff and need to declutter, and we all face that situation from time to time, Dymon should definitely be the place you end up.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Vanier Community Association is looking to advocate for more safe cycling routes in the community this year. The community association announced its list of priorities during its ďŹ rst meeting of the year which was held at the Richelieu-Vanier Centre Community Centre on Sept. 11. Those priorities include a renewal of Montreal Road, the possible introduction of an off-leash dog park and building the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership and strengthening its committees. The new president of the association, Mike Bulthuis, said the executive board held a meeting over the summer to identify the 10 priorities the association will focus on this year.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are 10 things we can strengthen and build on,â&#x20AC;? Bulthuis said. And as part of a new initiative by the city, a neighbourhood forum is also scheduled to take place on Nov. 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a great way to bring forward our priorities,â&#x20AC;? Bulthuis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it will be an interesting as building it as a resident forum.â&#x20AC;? Only ďŹ ve years old, the association established for the ďŹ rst time last year focused committees; sustainable development, health and safety, parks and recreation, communications and membership. A sub-committee was formed over the summer to look at the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaws and constitution. More than 25 people came out to the Tuesday evening meeting, with many of the residents signing up on the spot for different committees.

New health and safety chairman Dave Bateman said when it comes to this committee; its strength will be in the numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get a solid group of volunteers to create better communication,â&#x20AC;? Bateman said. The association will ďŹ ll a vacancy on its board of directors in October, Bulthuis said. The health and safety committee will hold its ďŹ rst meeting in the Vanier Room at the Vanier Community Service Centre, 299 Dupuis St., on Sept. 26, starting at 8 p.m. The associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other committees have not named which day or time to meet and have advised interested residents to email vca.acv@ The association also plans to launch a new website at the end of the month.

Bayview towers get planning committee’s OK Laura Mueller

representing that property’s owner, said his client had tried to engage DCR Phoenix in a conversation about aligning pedestrian paths and other elements of the two sites as they are redeveloped, but that conversation hasn’t happened yet. “There is much to like about it, but there is much to fear about it,” Webber said, adding that his client, Equity, was concerned about how the 190-metre long mass of buildings would isolate properties south of 801 Albert from the Transitway station. There will be two pedestrian accesses through the building, architect Vincent Colizza confirmed, and the city is working to hash out a legal agreement to ensure public access through those walkways for 18 hours each day as part of the Section 37 community benefit. A portion of the half-million dollar Section 37 contribution will also go towards constructing a pedestrian and cycling bridge across the O-Train tracks to the Tom Brown Arena in Hintonburg. While the developer requested that the matter be sent to council a day after planning committee met, on Sept. 12, the committee didn’t like that idea. It will be voted on by city council on Sept. 26.


Architect Vincent Colizza’s vision for 32- and 29-storey towers on Albert Street at Bayview Station got the planning committee’s approval at city hall on Sept. 11.


Cody Ceci Senators’ #1 Draft Pick

EMC news - City council is set to define the height of future buildings on lands south of the Bayview Transitway station at 32- and 29storeys. The exact design of buildings at the Albert Street site might change, but with the advent of light rail, the site will be primed to employ 6,000 people and provide new pedestrian and cycling links across a bridge to the Tom Brown Arena in Hintonburg. If city council approves the recommended rezoning on Sept. 26, it will pave the way for the property owner to construct two towers linked by a low-rise section, with two pedestrian accesses through the building to allow people to traverse the structure from the north and south. Pedestrian access and traffic was a major concern during the discussion at planning committee on Sept. 11. Eric Darwin of the Dalhousie Community Association was concerned that widening Albert Street to accommodate a turning lane for cars was a priority over widening sidewalks to account for the 5,400 or so people who would arrive by transit and on foot each day (there will

be underground parking for around 275 cars). “Why do motorists get improvements as part of the plan but pedestrians only get them as part of Section 37?” Darwin asked, referring to the section of the Planning Act that allows the city to collect community benefit payments to improve the neighbourhood in exchange for more dense zoning. While Darwin was concerned that Albert Street’s existing narrow sidewalks would not be widened to accommodate thousands of new pedestrians, a representative of the developer, DCR Phoenix, said the 801 Albert St. site will have a network of pathways to provide pedestrians with a few walkway options. Michelle Perry, a resident of the neighbourhood directly east of 801 Albert, Village Green, said people in her community are alarmed that the plan calls for the road to be widened to six lanes so as to include turning lanes, even though the site is supposed to rely more on public transit than private vehicles for transportation. Another concern expressed was how the major development could integrate with another possible redevelopment of the City Centre site to the south. Paul Webber, a lawyer

Casino downtown

A LOSING MOVE Feeling lucky? If you said no, you’re probably following the Ontario government’s plan to move slot machines out of racetracks by March 31, 2013. Taxpayers in Ontario benefit from nearly $1 billion a year sent to essential services from the slots. Since they’ve been in place, the OLG Slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway alone have generated $643 million for the provincial government that is specifically earmarked for health care in the province. The government is hoping this good fortune gets even better by taking the show downtown. This is more than a bad break for the people of Ottawa— it’s bad business.

OLG’s 2010 Net Profit 11% 49% 40%

The slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway produce $70 million annually for Ontario taxpayers. By contrast, despite being only 2.5 km from downtown Ottawa, the slots and gaming tables at Casino Lac-Leamy earned a net profit of $5 million less than that in 2011. The costs of doing business downtown are significantly higher and make profit return harder to manage. The large Casino Lac-Leamy has 400 more slot machines. Everyone in Ontario has an interest in seeing these earnings from the Rideau Carleton Raceway slots upheld.

fundraisers and entertainment shows that have been thriving over the past 12 years.

Since slot machines were introduced to the Rideau Carleton Raceway in 2000, they have generated $52 million for the City of Ottawa. Council has said this revenue helps keep property taxes lower for all residents. The venue is also an ideal location for the fairs,

These numbers are possible because the Rideau Carleton Raceway site is easily accessible at the south end of Ottawa, and it has low operating costs and 2500 free parking spaces. In return, more money flows back to the city and Ontario taxpayers.

From slots at racetracks From lotteries and bingos From casinos

The people of Ottawa are smart spenders and need to speak up. They resent paying for parking. They like quality food at affordable prices. Above all, they hate seeing their tax dollars lost on bad investments. Send your concerns to your City Councillor today!

City getting free LRT advice from IBM Laura Mueller

EMC news – On the same day the city received three bids for builders of its lightrail system, it also welcomed a team of international experts to devise a marketing plan for land around the new rapid transit line. The IBM Smarter Cities Challenge kicked off in Ottawa on Sept. 11 with the arrival of six experts who have never met, but who will live together in Ottawa for three weeks while devising a strategy to advertise transit hubs as attractive places for developers to build residential and commercial buildings. Dense housing and businesses around LRT stations will be critical to boosting ridership levels on the $2.1billion LRT line from Blair to Tunney’s Pasture, set to be completed by 2017. “We are good at plans, but we need a marketing strategy that entices private investors to invest along those corridors,” planning committee chairman Peter Hume said during the committee’s Sept. 11 meeting. “This will help build Ottawa’s new destination neighbourhoods and set the stage for future development.” The IBM team will come up with marketing plans specifically for stations at Train, St. Laurent and Cyrville, but those plans will be transferable to other areas that will be ripe for development when LRT arrives.

Deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said the exercise will set the stage for Ottawa’s future. “This will look at how the LRT will influence how our economy grows,” she said. Beyond the economic impact, light rail has huge citybuilding potential, Schepers said. “It can reshape and revitalize existing neighbourhoods and create complete communities,” she said. “We are keenly aware of the community-building aspects of LRT.” EXPERTS

IBM provided a team of its executives to conduct interviews and do research as they create a marketing plan over their three-week project. “The city is reaching a tipping point where this info is going to become more critical to the city’s future,” said Norm Chatelier, a spokesperson for the team. The other members of the team include Kate Chess, a “worldwide solutions executive” with IBM who oversees international business and infrastructure sales who has previously worked as a customer relationship manager. Another member, Hamid Khafagy, oversees the government sector for the development of IBM’s complex technical solutions based in Dubai. Louise Plourde, another team member, serves as the


IBM Smarter Cities team leader and spokesperson, Norm Chatelier, speaks to the city’s planning committee on Sept. 11, the first day of the team’s Ottawa project looking at marketing LRT hubs for development. business transformation and IT executive for IBM Canada. Michael Stevens is a senior marketing manager in IBM’s software group and the government market segment manager for IBM’s information management division. His work concentrates on using information analytics to create smarter governments. Leslie Thomas is an expert in solving large and complex organizational and performance issues.

She also has a decade of experience in each of the retail and banking sectors. The last member of the team, Zena Washington, is a global marketing manager with IBM Social Solutions. She is in charge of social business messaging and marketing strategy for governments and the education industry. In the past, she has worked with governments to identify innovative solutions for social collaboration.

Their advice would be worth about $400,000 but the city will get it for free. The experts sent by IBM will crunch numbers and engage stakeholders to see if the city is on the right track when it comes to creating market interest in developing the transit hubs. The study could recommend whether public investment is required to meet the needs of the current – and future – population of the city. This year’s IBM Smarter

Cities Challenge was announced on March 15 and Ottawa is one of two Canadian cities that were selected. Ottawa and Surrey, B.C., are the two Canadian cities among the 100 worldwide selected for the 2012 Smarter Cities Challenge. Since it began three years ago, 100 cities such as St. Louis, Philadelphia, Helsinki and Sapporo, Japan have utilized similar expertise from IBM worth around $50 million.

City council slashes 15 citizen advisory groups down to five Laura Mueller

EMC news - City council has approved slashing the number of citizen advisory groups at city hall from 15 to five. The move also shifted The Ottawa Built Heritage Advisory Committee (OBHAC) from an advisory group to a subcommittee of planning committee mostly comprised of councillors, and a seniors’ group will become an annual round table event instead. The changes are aimed at saving $190,000 annually. When the matter was discussed by a joint finance and governance committee on Aug, 30, Glebe resident Bob Brocklebank likened the restructuring to a “mercy killing.” The city has allowed the advisory committees to wither and become irrelevant, and killing them is the final stage,

Brocklebank said. “Put advisory committees out of their misery,” he said. Creating a heritage subcommittee that includes more city councillors than citizen experts is a move that has come under fire from heritage advocates. The deputy city clerk, Lesley Donnelly, says the city has had continuous issues recruiting good members for the built heritage advisory committee, so lowering the number of members and elevating it to a subcommittee should help attract the kind of candidates the city is looking for, Donnelly told councillors. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko wasn’t convinced. “My sense is that we’ve done a little bit too much streamlining and it’s gone too far. Heritage… is one area in particular that’s gone too far,” he said during the Sept. 12 council meeting.

Donnelly said council members who sit on that committee will become “heritage advocates” for heritage issues when they come to committee and city council. The heritage subcommittee will include councillors Peter Clark (whose RideauRockcliffe Ward includes two heritage conservation districts), Katherine Hobbs, (a member of the planning committee and councillor for Kitchissippi Ward), Scott Moffatt (the rural representative, from Rideau-Goulbourn

Ward) and planning committee vice chairwoman Jan Harder (Barrhaven) in addition to three members of the public. Many things have changed since the city amalgamated in 2001, when the advisory committees were established, a city report states. Access to technology and the availability of social media tools are changing how residents interact with the city and politicians, and other engagement strategies such as summits and departmental

working groups have proven more successful, according to a report from the city clerk’s office.

A broader report about citizen engagement is expected be discussed by city committees in December.

Repair, don’t replace Main Library branch: report

EMC news - Despite needing to consult an engineer before moving a stack of books, the structure of the Main Library branch is sound. The news came as a surprise to most of the members of the library board, some of whom have been pushing to build a new central library branch. The news came from a lengthy and long-awaited building condition audit and structural assessment of the 120 Metcalfe St. facility that reveals pumping $6.3 million into the facility would give the library 10 more years of life. “I was surprised when I saw that report,” said Coun. Jan Harder, chairwoman of the Ottawa Public Library board. “It’s telling me that this place is in rough shape, it’s not pretty, but it’s not going to fall down on you,” Harder said. The library board received the report on Sept. 10 and will discuss it in full in November. There was a push in the last decade to find a new location to construct a library to replace the Metcalfe branch, which opened in 1974. There was a general sense that the three-storey, 8,175-square-metre library was too small to serve the downtown population, and moreover, that the aging, Brutalist-style building – an example of a heavy, plain style of architecture – was

not fitting of a grand public facility such as a central library. Concerns grew when the third-floor wall separated from the floor in 2007, which led to the ongoing need to consult engineers before moving anything heavy – such as stacks of books – around the branch. While the report indicates that consulting an engineer is a good idea, it also says the “bones” of the building are in good condition and no major structural upgrades will be needed in the next 10 years. “No major deterioration, cracking or settlement was observed that would be indicative of a structural concern at the building,” reads the report from Morrison Hershfield. Most of the money for proposed upgrades would be needed in 2013 and 2014, the report states. That would mainly include electrical work, and in 2018 the report suggests replacing the waterproofing membranes within the walls of the library. A two-storey addition on the north half of the lower section of the library building is a possibility, the report states. NEW LIBRARY DREAM DEAD?

While Harder said the current library isn’t completely functional for the modern user’s needs, the report shows that the building itself is still usable.

That means the condition of the building can’t be used as a convincing reason to build a new one, Harder said. Harder said she is “absolutely not ready” to say that a new Main Library is the solution. “The location we have must be pursued further,” she said. Harder said she has $100,000 in the bank thanks to fundraising golf tournaments for the library, and she can use that money as she sees fit. Hiring an architect to design an addition to the Metcalfe location and redesign the interior layout would be a good use of that money, and it’s something Harder said she might propose to the library board. “We need somebody with vision … to look at this space with all this information and give us a ‘wow’,” Harder said. But some members of the board felt otherwise, including Jim Bennett, who asked to change the wording of the motion the board approved to accept the report. He wanted it to reference the possibility of a new library, but the board voted that down 7-5. “Clearly, there is a fraction on the board,” Harder said. Everyone on the board, which includes both city councillors and citizen members, loves libraries, Harder said. The difference is that some members are more attuned to the “realities of the fiscal environment.”


Green Bin Tip


The Main Library branch on Metcalfe Street needs about $6.3 million in upgrades over the next 10 years, but the library board was surprised to learn it is structurally sound.

Knee Pain?: PatelloFemoral Joint Syndrome

Fold 4 or 5 newspaper pages in half horizontally and fold the bottom corners to the centre.

By: Your Local Family Physiotherapy Centre Team Everyone has experienced knee pain at one time or another, and there are many different conditions which cause knee pain. Sometimes pain is produced with a local trauma, like falling on or twisting your knee. However, much of the time there’s no one clear “mechanism of injury” that starts the pain off.

Open it and slide it into your kitchen catcher.

A very common condition which typically develops in this way is patella-femoral joint syndrome (or PFJS for short). PFJS occurs when the kneecap, which needs to move up and down on the rest of the knee joint, doesn’t move along the pathway it’s meant to. This “maltracking” can lead to pain, clicking,

grinding and other abnormal sensations coming from under the kneecap. Overtime, this can lead to a wearing away of the kneecap cartilage. There are many possible contributing factors to PFJS. Sometimes there is a lack of local muscle strength to control the kneecap position, or excess tightness around the kneecap restricting normal movement. Often there is a lack of hip muscle control, which allows the leg to fall into a poor biomechanical position when moving around. Poor foot/ankle control or excessive “flat feet” can also contribute to PFJS. A physiotherapist or other

trained health practitioner can assess for what contributing factors are leading to your knee pain and provide treatment approaches to address your needs, whether it be exercises to work on your hip, knee or ankle control, releasing tight soft tissues in your leg, or suggest if orthotics might be of benefit.

Ottawa-Vanier community celebrates Diamond Jubilee Michelle Nash

EMC news - Fourteen members of the Ottawa-Vanier community received recognition for their contributions to the country and province. Last March, the office of Ottawa-Vanier member of provincial parliament Madeleine Meilleur requested nominations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal from its constituents. Recipients of the award had to have contributed to their

community, province or country in a significant way. To help choose the 14 recipients, Meilleur formed a selection committee, which included two Ottawa-Vanier residents. “I am proud to have been given this opportunity to recognize 14 outstanding citizens in Ottawa-Vanier,” Meilleur said “Their spirit of contribution is fittingly recognized with this Diamond Jubilee Medal, and we are lucky to have them in our community.”

Around the world for Capital City soccer alum â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Having the privilege of travelling is just a blessingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Odaine Demar Jessica Cunha

EMC sports - A former Capital City FC player has traveled the world to play the sport he loves. Odaine Demar currently plays for the Kingston FC, and is contracted to Gamla Upsala Sportklubb (GUSK) in Sweden, a second division professional soccer team. The 20-year-old contacted the Swedish club and sent over his resume and videos. The powers that be were impressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was on trial for a week, and ended up staying for the whole month,â&#x20AC;? said Demar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was quite overwhelming at first to be honestâ&#x20AC;Śa new country, a new environment.â&#x20AC;? Demar was overseas playing on a travel visa, but after a handful of games he needs a work permit to continue hitting the field. So he came home to Morganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant at the end of August where he will remain until his work permit is approved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just experiencing some-

thing different. Having the privilege of traveling is just a blessing,â&#x20AC;? said Demar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For soccer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a bigger privilege.â&#x20AC;? His immediate plans include finishing the season with the Kingston FC, obtaining his Swedish work visa and heading back overseas to continue playing. After that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;hopefully sign for a Swedish premier league club and decide my future from there,â&#x20AC;? said Demar. Demar played for Capital City FC from 2011-12. CHASE THE DREAM

Demar has played ball in a number of different countries, including Jamaica, England, Scotland, Germany, Sweden, and Canada. Nationally, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played in Vancouver, Quebec, Kingston and Toronto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all for soccer.â&#x20AC;? He said his travels have really helped improve his handling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Experiencing different styles of play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be-

cause of my travelingâ&#x20AC;Śthatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helped me develop my play,â&#x20AC;? he said. Born in Jamaica and awaiting his Canadian citizenship, Odaine said his dream is to one day play for the Canadian menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a dream, just keep chasing your dream no matter what,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all comes down to hard work.â&#x20AC;? Demar began playing competitively in 2005 after a friend helped convince him to try out for the Hendon FC in London, England, a semi-professional soccer team. At All Saints Catholic High School in Kanata, he held the record for second-most goals in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history with a total of 45 over the course of four years. Demar said he used the sport as a means of coping with his home life growing up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who know me know I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smile much. Playing soccer makes me smile,â&#x20AC;? said Demar, adding he was never close with his parents and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anyone to look up to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my only escape to be honest. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of problems growing up. Soccer has been my way to escape and have fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good feeling.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have come a long way in the fight against cancerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Fox Gabrielle Tieman

EMC news - Thousands of Ottawa residents gathered at Carleton Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anniversary Park early Sunday morning, Sept. 16, for the 32nd annual Terry Fox Run. The annual 10-kilometer run, walk and wheel event had raised over $200,000 by noon Sunday to add to the millions in donations Ottawa had gained over previous years. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event included two start times, one for the community and a second for Carleton University stu-

dents participating in Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CAUSE (College and University Student Engagement)â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an initiative celebrating Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and raises money for cancer research. Dr. Victor Ling, scientific director for the Terry Fox Research Institute, said the event is one of the reasons cancer is now 62 per cent curable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whereas when Terry was alive, it was 25 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Step by step we are making progress through events like this and we will beat this thing,â&#x20AC;? said Ling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all here because

we have a very specific hope - and that hope is that through cancer research we can really beat this.â&#x20AC;? Ling, joined by Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother Darrell Fox and Governor General David Johnston, started the race flanked by family and members of the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been involved for 32 years,â&#x20AC;? said Johnston â&#x20AC;&#x201C; joined by his daughter, sonin-law and two grandchildren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This race is for everyone and it is great to see the Terry Fox idea touching people and involving all ages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those who


Dr Victor Ling, Govenor General David Johnston and Darrell Fox cut the ribbon to start the Terry Fox Run at Carleton University. have been touched by cancer and those who have not.â&#x20AC;? Darrell Fox said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been â&#x20AC;&#x153;able to witness a nation join

forcesâ&#x20AC;? with his brother over the years and witness miracles in the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have come a long way

in the fight against cancer,â&#x20AC;? said Fox. Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run is one of the largest in Ontario.

EMC news - Two high schools in south Ottawa have failed to sign up for regular season play in the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association (NCSSAA) this year, after teachers withdrew from extracurricular activities in protest of the Liberal government’s legislation to freeze teachers’ wages and ban strikes. Ridgemont and Hillcrest public high schools are among 11 Ottawa schools that did not register teams to take part in sports offered every fall to students – a decision students have called “disappointing.” Danielle Saunders-Gauthier, a Grade 11 Ridgemont student took a basketball course this summer to prepare her to play in the fall NCSSAA season, in anticipation of taking part in the fall season. Now she said she can’t do that. “I didn’t have any idea that by the time this (fall) comes around, there was going to be no sports team anymore,” said Danielle. Across the city, students have staged protests to express their outrage over the legislation, which has taken away sports programs and extracurricular activities from them, said Danielle. “These programs are extremely important. It is where you get the best memories of high school,’ said Danielle. According to numbers given by the public school board, nearly half of Ottawa high schools will have no extracurricular sports teams this fall. “It is disappointing but I can understand the teachers’ perspective on it,” said Danielle. Teachers’ unions across the province have urged their members to pressure the government by withdrawing their support for extracurricular activities; a move Danielle said has left many students frustrated. “While there are students that are supporting the teachers, there are others that are blaming them because they are the ones that came up with the decision to not have extra curricular (activities), because it is the only thing they can fight back with,” she said. “It is really difficult for us who are missing out on sports and arts programs.” Danielle, who has played basketball, volleyball, rugby and football for her school, organized a protest that was scheduled to take place on Sept. 19 outside Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Ottawa office. “We want to show our point of view on that,” she said. Danielle said she is expecting a couple of thousand students to join the protest. “I made a Facebook group and 3,000 people joined within six hours. It went fast and viral. People seem to be very interested.” “The message we are trying to send out is that the bill was really negative not just to the teachers but to students as well.”

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Overbrook artist Rosalie Favell has been honoured with the 2012 Karsh Award for her works representing indigenous society. The $7,500 prize is awarded every two years by the city to recognize signiďŹ cant contribution to photographic practice in Ottawa, throughout Canada and internationally. It is named in honour of Yousuf and Malak Karsh, Ottawa brothers and photographers who were internationally renowned for their work in the mid 1900s. Favell accepted her award from Mayor Jim Watson at the Karsh-Masson Gallery surrounded by her portraits of fellow artists and aboriginal people

who inspired her. The approximately 60 blackand-white photographs were shot over the past four years in Ottawa, Winnipeg, Colorado and other location. In a way, Favell said, the exhibition is a sort of retrospective for her work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about imaging a community,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that she was honoured to be chosen for the award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is through this generosity that I am able to create such incredible art.â&#x20AC;? A panel of three jurors chose Favell because her self-representational works deďŹ ne and inspire contemporary indigenous society. Favell was born in Winnipeg and much of her work involves self portraiture and draws upon her MĂŠtis heritage. She is cur-

Photo exhibit shows off Ottawa youth’s talent Michelle Nash

EMC news - A new exhibition from the Council for the Arts in Ottawa offered four young girls the chance of a lifetime. The council is presenting A Gallery of Portraits, a photography exhibit showcasing the work of four teens at the Arts Court in downtown Ottawa from Sept. 14 to Oct. 14. The project is the brain child of Julie Hodgson, a former senior projects manager at the National Gallery of Canada. When the Council for the Arts asked her to curate a show, Hodgson decided to make it something geared to-

wards youth participation. The retired curator took four girls ages 14 to 17 under her wing for a year and created a program where the young photographers worked with Hodgson and veteran photographers from the University of Ottawa and the School of Photographic Arts in Ottawa to learn about photographic techniques, how to work with different subjects, printing and matting. “My dream is to be a National Geographic photographer,” said 17 year-old artist Freya Poirer. Poirer and her classmates, Emma Rath, Maya Wilson and Rawaa Ayoub formed the small group who participated in the pilot project.

Hodgson, who is a photography lover, jumped at the chance to use images as the medium for the exhibition. “I love photographs, I loved portraits and loved working with young people,” Hodgson said. In the beginning, Hodgson said she had hoped to work with at least 12 students, but after speaking with professors and teachers with a background in photography, she decided four would make it easier to work one-on-one with. Hodgson asked various youth organizations across the city to choose the students – she was open to both male and female candidates – who would participate.

Once her four students were chosen, Hodgson started the program. The girls first spent time with Michael Schreier, a professional photographer and former director of visual arts and photography at the University of Ottawa, who taught the girls an overview of photography and portraiture and also led two in-depth critiques of their work. Hodgson then approached Michael Tardiol, the director of the School of Photographic Arts in Ottawa, to give a session on printing. Tardioli and his staff held a one-day workshop in Photoshop and allowed the artists to print their images. The girls also learned how to cut mats and were loaned frames from the school to frame their art for the exhibition.

Poirer said this was an amazing project to take part in. “This was a huge opportunity for me,” Poirer said. “It definitely helped me expand my skills.” Poirer credited both the classes with Schreier and Tardioli to her new-found skill sets. “I learned so much and I am really grateful for the time everyone dedicated to us,” Poirer said. “Michael (Schreier) has really taught me how to take a meaningful photograph.” All the girls grew up before her eyes, Hodgson said. “When we started they were all shy and reserved,” Hodgson said. “But then, when I was reading their artist’s statements, there were such deep thoughts. I was amazed.” A project manager with

museums and the National Gallery of Canada for more than 20 years, the 63 year-old found herself using new technology to connect with the young girls. “I found I was texting the girls to connect with them; it was definitely a different way of communicating,” Hodgson said. Hodgson, who has no children of her own, said she enjoyed working with the students, and sees herself doing something similar in the future. The exhibition will take place in the Micaela Fitch Room in the Arts Court Building at 2 Daly Ave. The artists will be available to meet and speak to the public on Sept. 29 from 2 to 3 p.m. The exhibit will show until Oct.14.


Freya Poirer’s work, including this portrait is on display at her first photography exhibit, A Gallery of Portraits at the Arts Courts at 2 Daly Ave. The show began on Sept. 14 and runs until Oct. 14. Poirer and the other three artists will be available to speak to on Sept. 28 from 2 to 3 p.m.

Wabano birch bark canoe project builds culture, friendship Michelle Nash

EMC news - Youth at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health have successfully completed building one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest forms of transportation. The Birch Bark Canoe project began over the summer months through the I am Connected program at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health. Over the two months, youth learned all about the history of the canoe, from paddling to building and began the construction of two canoes at the end of August. Program manager, Christine Head, found the project incredibly informative for both the youth and adults who came to help with the construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been really interesting,â&#x20AC;? Head said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the kids are really learning a lot.â&#x20AC;? The group has learned the basics of canoe construction from a traditional teacher, Pinock, who has been constructing canoes, big and small, for the past 25 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is important for the youth to see how it is

made,â&#x20AC;? Pinock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were designed by our ancestors and it is a part of our culture and a part of who we are.â&#x20AC;? The elder brought all the materials to build the canoe, which did not include any nails or glue. Instead, the pine and birch is soaked in water to make it pliable, the wood was split with only the use of a knife and the birch bark attached with the use of pine tree roots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pinock has done a lot of the work,â&#x20AC;? said Rob Friedman, one of the adult helpers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a ritual to take the wood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he blessed the tree and the roots and only took what he needed.â&#x20AC;? Initially, Head said, the group was to build one full size canoe, but opted to make two smaller canoes instead. From building the exterior birch bark to placing the ribs in the interior, Pinock made sure each of the youth participated in the construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like showing people how to do it, showing them everything about the construction,â&#x20AC;? Pinock said. Head said she was pleased with how many youth partici-


For the past two months, youth and adults from the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health constructed two canoes as part of a new summer program, the Birch Bark Canoe Project. Some of the builders show off one of the two canoes built at the centre. From left: Conrad Morin, Rob Friedman, Victoria Caldwell, Christine Head, James Hawke and traditional teacher and canoe builder Pinock. pated in the project and added that Pinock, who also teaches traditional teachings and culture through the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, helped some of the children build birch bark baskets as well. Capable of holding a small child, both canoes will be placed in the water at the end of this month. Head said one of the canoes will more than

likely be placed on display at the end of the project. The I am Connected program reaches out to aboriginal youth between the ages of 10 to 24 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an age the centre has noticed a drop in the numbers of children walking through their doors. This program is only one way the Wabano centre reaches out to youth. A Youth Council was formed in 2011

as a way to give a voice to aboriginal children in the community. Funded by Health Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, I am Connected uses art, mentoring, urban planning, life-skills training, and photography to engage youth, offering them the opportunity to get connected with various people and organizations

in Vanier and greater Ottawa area. The work is geared towards a goal of creating a safe and healthy community. The group meets Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. For more information about the project or I Am Connected, contact Head at chead@wabano. com or call her at 613-7480657 ext. 241.

Yoga marathon to help raise money for celiac association Michelle Nash

EMC news - A local celiac association will hold its first activity driven fundraiser in the Glebe to help raise awareness and money for the charity. The Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association announced it will hold a Yogathon for celiac disease at Ottawa’s Fred Astaire Dance Studio, 149 Second Ave. on Sept. 22. Vice-president of the Ottawa chapter, Mark Johnson, said connecting a healthy activity to a disease to promote fundraising and awareness made sense. “It is a healthy activity, being tied to the celiac association; it made sense to connect healthy activities to a healthy cause,” he said. The event, Johnson added, is aiming to have at least 100 people participate throughout the day. There will be a variety of yoga styles, including hatha, yin and ashtanga during the marathon yoga session. Participants will also have the chance to win door prizes. One of the goals of the fundraiser is to better educate people about celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity. Celiac disease affects one per cent of Canadians and it is estimated six per cent of Canadians are gluten-sensitive.


The Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association held the 30th annual national conference of the Canadian Celiac Association in May. The organization will be holding a yoga-thon fundraiser on Sept. 22 to help raise awareness about the disease and fund the association. Gluten refers to the protein found in wheat, rye, barley, triticale and oats. Those diagnosed must steer clear of any food with any amount of gluten because it makes the body unable to absorb nutrients, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.

The ingestion of gluten can cause nutritional deficiencies, blistering skin rash and an increased risk of other autoimmune diseases, such as Type 1 diabetes. There is no cure for celiac disease, but is treatable by following a strict diet.

“Three million Canadians suffer from celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, and this fundraiser will help ensure there is safe labeling for gluten-free food,” Johnson said. Gluten-free food in grocery stores has come a long way, Johnson added, with the asso-

ciation working with Health Canada since 1994 to ensure food marked gluten-free are properly labeled. “Safe labeling is certainly making a difference, but some of the problems celiac individuals still face, is dining out … not everyone in the food

industry or family and friends understands just the smallest amount can make someone sick,” he said. Some of the progress with safe-labeling, Johnson said includes a pilot project in Prince Edward Island to provide information and education for food servers in retirement homes and the development of courses for food service workers on how gluten-free food should be prepared safely and without contamination. Johnson said he hopes events like this fundraiser will help raise awareness of the disease and help fund some of the organization’s charity activities to help educate people. The organization is not new to fundraising. Each month at the Riverside churches of Ottawa, members have the opportunity to gather for pot lucks, nutritional meetings and speaker series. Johnson, diagnosed with celiac disease himself, encourages all newly diagnosed individuals to join and attend information sessions held at the church. Participants are encouraged to pre-register online at The yoga-thon will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22. Donations of $15 for the first hour of yoga, and $10 for each subsequent hour are requested.

William Street square now under construction EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Construction on the William Street pedestrian area has begun. Although city council approved the creation of a pedestrian-only space on William Street north of York Street in the ByWard Market last fall, the local merchantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; association wanted to wait until the tourism season calmed down before digging up the area. While there have been temporary barricades to block off trafďŹ c and benches and seating provided in the area, a more attractive, permanent upgrade to the space is on its way. The work will include widening the sidewalks on William Street and creating boulevards on York Street and concrete crosswalks to make it easier to cross from the pedestrian area to the ByWard Market building. The boulevards on Clarence Street at William Street

will also be widened. New lighting, trees, planters and benches will be added to the area. The work was set to begin on Sept. 17 and is scheduled to take eight weeks. The contractor, Ottawa D Squared Construction Ltd., wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be doing any work on the weekends. The pedestrian area was championed by the former environmental advisory committee, which was eliminated last week as part of the restructuring of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advisory committees. Last year, the former chairman of that advisory group said he hopes the William Street pedestrian square can pave the way for the creation of other vibrant pedestrian areas in the city. While he agreed that many view some pedestrian zones, such as Sparks Street, as failures because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lively atmosphere that attracts people to them, Quealey said

that is a lesson William Street can teach Ottawa. Sparks Street is surrounded by ofďŹ ce buildings, so the area generally empties out at the end of the work day, Quealey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to have that collective energy, and the market has that,â&#x20AC;? Quealey said. While the closed-off block of William Street has slowly been becoming a destination to watch buskers or grab a seat on a bench, the original intention was to reduce trafďŹ c congestion and get rid of idling vehicles polluting the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air. The ďŹ rst season, in 2010, was a bit of a ďŹ&#x201A;op because trafďŹ c was already snarled due to major construction projects in the vicinity, such as King Edward Avenue and Sussex Drive, said Jasna Jennings, head of the ByWard Market Business Improvement Area. But in 2011, the results were much better, she said. With files from Laura Mueller

Prayers get family through Dirty Thirties


e learned to pray at a very early age. Mother was a firm believer in prayer. Father, not so much. Oh, he was a believer in God, but he often wondered why, when we were doing all the right things, we were still poor as church mice. Why we lost several cows when lightning hit the big maple tree on the west hill under which the cows were seeking refuge in a storm was another question he asked. So other than grace at the table at meal time, father pretty well left the praying up to mother. Although mother was raised a Catholic, she became a Lutheran when she married father. Nevertheless, when she felt she needed a special prayer answered, she wasn’t above resorting to her rosary beads. But she always made it clear to us five children, it wasn’t a case of what you used when praying, it was how often, and how fervently you did so. And so every night before we went to bed, we were marched upstairs to what Emerson irreverently called “the scrunch corner.”

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories That was because we all had to scrunch down around mother’s knee when she settled into the old rocking chair that sat under the window in the corner of the room. It was in my sister Audrey’s and my bedroom, which was really the upstairs hall, and it was hardly big enough to hold all of us. I always tried to get in the middle, because then I could rest my head on mother’s knee, but Emerson usually beat me to it. Mother would wait until we had all settled down around her knee, our eyes closed and our hands in steeples, and then she would begin. Her first prayers were ones we said every night. Exactly the same, word for word. I wondered back then if God got bored listening to the same prayers over and over again. When those prayers were finished, we then said special prayers for everything

such as rain, good crops, a bountiful vegetable garden and a good day of selling door-to-door in Renfrew. Mother never forgot the old woman who lived alone in Renfrew, Granny Hines on the next farm, and the minister’s wife, who mother thought was a saint! They were all part of our nightly prayers. And then of course we were expected to come up with our own prayers when all the group praying was over. That idea came to a great and glorious end when Emerson prayed that something evil would befall his very worse enemy at the Northcote School. Mother said, what we would do instead was pray silently to ourselves. I asked her how God would hear us if we didn’t say the prayers out loud. Mother assured me, He would be well aware of my silent prayers. And so began a lifetime of

silent praying. Our Lutheran minister certainly didn’t believe in silent prayers, I thought back then. In fact his prayers were so loud, at the time I figured they could hear them in the United church a stone’s throw away. And I wondered if your prayers had an advantage if you took on the pained look that came across our minister’s face whenever he opened his mouth. I asked my older and much wiser sister Audrey if she thought he had sore feet, because not only did he have a pained look on his face, he had the habit of rocking from one foot to the other. To be honest, I was so intrigued with the minister when he was praying that I couldn’t take my eyes off him, when in fact, I was supposed to be sitting in the pew ramrod straight, in deep concentration. Audrey said it had nothing to do with sore feet.’ It had to do with the sincerity of the message. I had no idea what my sister was getting at, so I just had to sit there, Sunday after Sunday with my own thoughts. And then it occurred to me that maybe there was something to this silent prayer business. After all, if a whole lot of people were doing it at the same time, that alone

should have an impact and greatly impress God. And so praying silently became part of my life. I’m afraid I wasn’t very good at it to start. I was praying for things that I had seen in the five and dime store window in Renfrew, and even prayed one time that bad Marguirite would move to another country. When none of these things came about, I decided I had to change what I was praying for. We also prayed every morning at the Northcote School. Right after Miss Crosby read a verse from the Bible, she said the Lord’s Prayer, and we repeated it after her. One day I realized we did a lot of praying out there in Northcote ... there were the graces at every meal, morning prayers at the Northcote School, our nightly prayers around mother’s knee at night, and the silent prayers each of us were encouraged to offer. I thought back then, with the Depression closed in around us like a tight vice, and every day a struggle for survival, it was the prayers, in whatever form they were given, that were what really got us through the Dirty Thirties.

Traffic calming for Hawthorne Ottawa South EMC staff

EMC news - Road widening, bridge reconstruction and traffic calming measures all remain top traffic concerns in Old Ottawa East. During the Sept. 11 Old Ottawa East Community Association meeting it was reported the Lees Avenue eastbound Highway 417 onramp will not be closed until spring 2013. Originally planned to close this month the Ministry of Transportation and the city have decided to combine construction work for the 417 widening and light rail transit corridor work into one contract. The Main Street and McIlraith Bridge reconstruction consultations are set to begin. The city has created a public advisory group to discuss the reconstruction plans. The group will consist of representatives of the institutions, businesses, landowners, interest groups, schools, and relevant city advisory groups and the community association. Also at the meeting, it was announced the budget request needed to implement traffic calming measures including speed bumps will go ahead for Hawthorne Avenue, but when the construction will begin still needs to be determined.

Damn the cornmeal, full molasses ahead!


f you’ve ever come across a recipe for Anadama bread, you’re probably familiar with the story of how it got its name. One of the early pioneers in New England supposedly had a lazy wife named Anna. She never had supper ready for him, but every night she would serve him cornmeal mush or pudding. Finally getting tired of this, the fellow stirred some flour and molasses into the mush and put it on the fire to bake. All the time, he kept muttering, “Anna, damn her!” I don’t know what his bread tasted like, but I can guarantee that once you’ve tasted this bread machine version, you’ll make it often. Made with cornmeal, molasses and flour, Ana-

savoury salmon


PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff • 1 1/2 cups flour • 1/2 tsp. salt • 1 tsp. bread machine yeast

dama bread is very light in texture, brown in color and slightly sweet in flavour. It goes well with almost any meal, but I particularly like to serve it with chili or soup. This bread keeps well and stays fairly moist for about two days.

Measure the ingredients into your bread machine in the order given. Start it, using either the delay or regular cycle. When the bread is done, remove it from the baking pan, and set it on a wire rack for about one hour to cool before slicing. This recipe makes a small loaf, ideal for two to four people.

Street named Eric Czapnik Way after fallen officer Police officer honoured for sacrifice Brier Dodge

EMC news - Eric Czapnik was a determined man, shifting career paths at age 48 to achieve his goal of becoming a police officer. So having a street named Eric Czapnik Way is fitting, said his son, Lukasz Galazk. “I know my father’s watching right now and probably has the biggest smile on his face, because he always liked things to go his way,” Galazk said. “And now he can – he got Czapnik’s Way.” The street adjacent to the Orléans community police station off St. Joseph Boulevard, running between the station and the Quality Inn, was officially renamed Eric Czapnik Way on Sept. 13. Czapnik, who worked from the Orléans station, was fatally stabbed while on duty outside the Civic hospital in the early morning of Dec. 29, 2009. His window, Anna Korutowska, and children Lukasz Galazk, Catherine Czapnik and Anthony Korutowski, arrived in a police escort at the unveiling ceremony. Arthur Czapnik, his son, was unable to attend. For six-year-old Anthony the chance to ride in a police

car was the highlight of his day, he said. Korutowska was met by police Chief Charles Bordeleau and Mayor Jim Watson, who accompanied her to the main stage. Bordeleau reflected on the sacrifice made by Czapnik, and the legacy he leaves for young officers and the community. “We want the name, Eric Czapnik Way, to be a reminder to everybody to pursue your dreams and never give up on what you really want to do,” Bordeleau said. “It’s a message to our young people as well, that it’s never too late to pursue your dreams.” Watson, Couns. Bob Monette and Eli El-Chanitry, chair of the Ottawa police services board, also spoke. El-Chantiry said the street should be a reminder to the community of the risks that officers take every day to protect the city. After the ceremony, Korutowska said that she wants the community to recognize that despite recent negativity in the news about police, those are isolated incidents, and the level of service her husband gave is the norm. “I truly hope that (people who see the street) will

know who Eric Czapnik is, and if they don’t that they take the time to figure out who he was and what he did for the city,” she said. “Not as much how he died, but how he lived.” Galazk said it took a long time for the family to be able to enjoy time together following their father’s death. “Almost two-and-a-half years have passed since the incident, and finally the conviction,” he said. Community and citizen donations helped send the family to Disney World this past spring. “For the first time since Eric’s passing, my family enjoyed some much needed time together – fun and laughter at Disney World,” Galazk said. “I had lots of fun,” Anthony said. “Every time we’re going to pass through the street, we’ll remember not the tragedy, but the character,” said Galazk, who spoke on behalf of the Czapnik family during the ceremony. “The character of a man that put others before him. The character of a man who would not give up his gun, no matter what happened, always thinking of others. With that thought, Eric made the world a better place.”

Carleton Place veteran selected to join Himalayan climb Expedition to support injured soldiers and families Blair Edwards

A Carleton Place man has been selected to join a team of Canadian veterans attempting to summit Island Peak, a 6,189metre mountain in the Himalayas next month. Carl Keenan will join 11 other veterans who were wounded or suffered an illness while serving in the military. Keenan was injured while serving in Afghanistan from 2007-08 as a member of the Canadian Forces Protective Services Unit, providing security for generals and other V.I.P.s. During his final week of his tour of duty, Keenan stepped on a piece of broken glass. The soldier pulled the glass out and tended to his foot himself, as he didn’t want to be sent home before the other members of his six-man team. When Keenan returned home he discovered he needed surgery to remove pieces of glass still stuck in his foot. Keenan’s marriage ended soon after his return. “I have close personal friends who have battled PTSDs (post traumatic stress disorder) and I have friends who have suffered wounds in the military,” said Keenan. “There’s always the concern, is there life after the military?”

The March to the Top climb was organized by True Patriot Love, a national foundation that supports current and retired members of the military as well as their families. The expedition, made up of 12 veterans and eight donors, is raising money and awareness for the foundation. A documentary filmed by CBC will follow the veterans as they arrive in Kathmandu, Nepal on Oct. 7 and begin a month-long trek to Mount Everest base camp before attempting to summit Island Peak. The foundation raises money for programs like the Military Families Fund, which provides emergency assistance to the families of soldiers. For more information about the charity visit Keenan, who is now a constable with the Ottawa police, serving in west division, was selected from a group of 140 applicants. “It was on my bucket list,” he said. “To be able to do it with a volunteer/fundraiser is unbelievable.” The 36 year old, who will soon be moving to Stittsville, applied for the expedition in April and learned he made the team in August. “I thought to myself, I bet-

ter start training a little bit harder,” said Keenan, after he found out he made the final cut. For the past six months, Keenan has done three crossfit workouts three times a week and two 10-kilometre runs twice a week. “I feel great,” he said. “I’ve always been in decent shape.” Keenan combined his exercise regime with a strict diet that allowed no junk food. His climbing experience is limited to a one-week mountaineering course he took in Canmore, Alta. and an iceclimbing course he took with Outward Bound, a company that organizes canoeing, kayaking and mountaineering adventures. While in Nepal, Keenan will be able to keep in touch with his girlfriend and newborn son over an Internet phone connection provided by the expedition’s organizers. “I appreciate all the support I’ve gotten to this point,” said Keenan. “I’m looking forward to summitting this mountain with soldiers who’ve been through a lot of similar experiences. “But in the end I’m really looking forward to helping my fellow soldiers.” For more information about the expedition visit www.


Carl Keenan will join 11 other veterans who were wounded or suffered an illness while serving in the military for an expedition to climb Island Peak, a 6,189-metre mountain in the Himalayas near Mount Everest next month.

Daredevils prepare to step off an 18-storey building Michelle Nash

EMC news - Ottawa residents are preparing to drop themselves off an 18-storey building to help raise money for children with disabilities. The third annual Easter Seals Drop Zone Ottawa will take place on Sept. 24 at the National Hotel and Suites Ottawa on Queen Street. On the day 108 participants will drop off the side of the18-storey hotel and rappel to safety in support of the Ontario children and youth with physical disabilities. “I will be pushing my limits as far as a fear factor, but you look at the kids and really, this event is appropriate because they push themselves everyday,” said participant Angela Havey. Havey heard about the fundraising event through her company Century 21 in the spring. She said she leapt at the chance to participate. “I thought this was a challenge I was willing to try to help fundraise,” Havey said. Havey and her team came out to a training session on Sept. 13 at the Coyote Rock Climbing Gym to learn the ropes. Propelling herself off a

three metre rock climbing wall, Havey said may be nothing like the building, but still, she found herself afraid to give it a try. “Leaning back is the scariest part,” she said. “But once you trust the rope will hold you, it becomes a lot easier.” Havey was not alone in feeling the fear at the training session. Twenty people came out to the session, all having to drop off the side of the rock wall at least twice. Others couldn’t wait to go again and again. “It is really fun,” said Don Gompf. “It was my first time, but I was pretty easy.” All of the participants who will be rappelling off the building had to raise a minimum of $1,500. One group, the Amway Ottawa Yager group, has raised more than $6,000 for the cause. The Easter Seals Drop Zone Ottawa is presented by Morguard. All the money raised will support children with physical disabilities by providing financial assistance for mobility equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs, braces, communication devices and a fully accessible summer camp.

In 2011, across Canada, the event raised over $1 million for the organization. Since the fundraiser began in 2005, more than 3,700 people have participated in the event and has raised more than $5.79 million for Canadians with disabilities.

You can’t eliminate scratching behaviours: it’s a normal behaviour for your cat; it becomes a problem only when the object being scratched is an item of value to you. The goal is to redirect the scratching to an acceptable object, such as a scratching post. Provide objects for scratching that are appealing and convenient from your cat’s point of view. Observe the physical features of the objects your cat is scratching. Note their location, texture, shape and height. Substitute a similar object(s) for your cat to scratch (for example, rope-wrapped posts, corrugated cardboard, or even a log). Place an acceptable object (for example, scratching post) near

an inappropriate object (for example, upholstered chair). Make sure the objects are stable and won’t fall over when she uses them. You can make these objects more attractive to your cat by spraying them with catnip periodically and hanging a toy from the post. If you cat is refusing to use a scratching post and prefers your rug, try covering a piece of plywood with carpet and spraying it with some catnip. Cover the inappropriate object(s) with something your cat won’t like, such as double-sided sticky tape, aluminium foil, sheets of sandpaper, or a plastic carpet runner with the pointy side up. Only remove the “unappealing” coverings (for example, double-sided sticky tape, aluminium foil, sheets of sandpaper) from the inappropriate object(s) when your cat is consistently using the appropriate objects. This will entice your cat to investigate the more appealing scratching post. Don’t take your cat over to the scratching post and position her paws on the post to show her what she’s supposed to do. This will likely have the opposite effect and

make her less likely to use the post. Special products for training your cat are available at pet supply stores. If you are considering declawing your cat, consider this: declawing a cat doesn’t remove just the claws — it amputates the end digit from the paw, similar in scope to cutting off a person’s finger at the last joint. This procedure can cause substantial discomfort and complications after the operation. Declawed cats may become reclusive, irritable, aggressive and unpredictable, and may have a tendency to bite as they cannot scratch to give warning. While other, newer methods exist for declawing (for example, laser surgery), the end result is still undesirable for your cat as it prevents her from engaging in normal cat behaviour. The OHS does not support declawing. It should be considered as a final option after you have exhausted other alternatives to eliminate destructive behaviour. However, if you feel that you must either declaw your cat or give her up, the OHS would rather see your cat stay in her

My favorite things to do are taking long walks in the grass, eat and than store some of my kibble in my cheeks (to eat later in bed!), chase anything that catches my attention, ah and sleeping under the covers!!

home. If you decide that it is absolutely necessary to have your cat declawed, only have the front paws done, so that the cat can still scratch an itch, climb and defend herself. If this is your decision, consult your veterinarian first and discuss having the surgery done at the same time your cat is spayed or neutered. Other tips If you catch your cat in the act, try making a loud noise (for example, use a whistle, shake a soda can filled with pebbles or pennies, or slap a wall or a table) or use a water-filled squirt bottle. Conversely, when your cat claws the scratching post instead of your couch, make sure you give your cat extra praise and affection. One reason cats scratch is to remove the dead outer layer of their claws. Regularly trimming your cat’s nails can help reduce scratching. You should clip off the sharp tips of your cat’s claws on his front feet every two weeks or so. More companion animal information is available at

Scratching is normal cat behaviour, not a comment on your upholstery. Cats scratch in order to: remove the dead outer layer of their claws; rub their scent onto things to mark their territory; stretch; work off energy; and even to seek your attention when they want something. There are lots of ways to keep your feline friend from ruining the furniture.

Dreams will take flight for Walt Disney World on Sept. 25 Theresa Fritz

EMC events - A group of Ottawa-area special needs children are about to embark on the trip of a lifetime. Dreams Take Flight Ottawa is a not-for-proďŹ t charitable organization offering a oneday trip for physically, mentally or socially challenged children to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 25. Since 1995, Dreams Take Flight Ottawa has given special needs children an incredible day where they can be carefree and make memories to last forever. Thee kids are treated to a wonderful day at the happiest place on earth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Walt Disney Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Magic Kingdom. In anticipation of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip, the 16th since 1995, an orientation day was held Sunday, Sept. 9, at the Canada Science and Technology Museum for volunteers, children and their parents, as well as members of the media who

will be making the whirlwind journey. According to Caroline Barnett, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day of ďŹ&#x201A;ight director for the organization, the magical experience is made possible by generous sponsors and volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big difference is the dedicated volunteers,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our entire executive is volunteer. It is 100 per cent volunteer run. No one gets paid to do any of this.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip will cost $195,000 and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be possible without assistance from organizations like Air Canada, which is donating the plane for the trip and Shell, which is donating the fuel. Other corporate sponsors like the clothing chain Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Crocs and Bentley, who have stepped up to assist with clothing, shoes and backpacks for volunteers and children. And even more sponsors support the trip and the charity in other ways. Various fundraising events held over the course of the year help top up coffers so that

everything is paid for on the trip. Children also get spending money to bring home a Disney souvenir. Barnett said even though the big trip lasts for only one day, everyone is dedicated year-round to making it happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of us have done this or participated with other charities and they just see this as such a viable charity and such an important charity,â&#x20AC;? she said. The visit to Walt Disney World is a long one, lasting nearly 24 hours. Children and volunteers will depart for Florida at 5:30 a.m., and return to Ottawa just before midnight, spending nine hours at the Magic Kingdom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long day,â&#x20AC;? Barnett said. Volunteers, children and parents were advised that Florida in September is hot and humid, so staying hydrated is important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Florida will be hot and muggy. Last year it was (45 C) all day,â&#x20AC;? Barnett advised, adding a doctor and two nurses do

This will mark Barnettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third Dreams Take Flight trip to Disney and she said each experience is incredibly moving and uplifting for all involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is unbelievable. It is the looks on the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; faces.

It is just everything. It means so much to them,â&#x20AC;? said Barnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of these kids go through a lot of things (and) this day away is just a way for them to be kids again.â&#x20AC;? Dreams Take Flight Ottawa uses speciďŹ c criteria to select children for the trip. All are

between the ages of six and 12 and have never visited a Disney theme park before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is challenging but very rewarding,â&#x20AC;? Barnett said of the logistics of the one-day trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really looking forward to the ďŹ&#x201A;ight and seeing everything run smoothly.â&#x20AC;?
