ramps up for election Party for People with Special Needs to run in all Ontario ridings Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – With a provincial election looming, the Party for People with Special Needs has plans of running a candidate in all of Ontario’s 108 ridings. “We are expanding to all 108 ridings in Ontario. We want to spread the word and we are looking for candidates in all ridings,” said John Redins, one of the nine candidates from the Party for People with Special Needs who ran in the last provincial election. In the 2011 election, Redins took on Liberal Ottawa South candidate and Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty and ended up garnering 238 votes. The party has fielded candidates in two provincial elections to help raise awareness of issues affecting people with disabilities. “There are many issues that need to be looked at to improve lives of people with disabilities in Ontario,” said the 46-year-old Redins, who is currently living on disability benefits following his second hip replacement and uses a walker to get around. He said he decided to get involved with the fledgling issue-based party when he found he wasn’t getting the answers he needed during his struggle with arthritis. “I was a McGuinty supporter, but there are some obstacles I feel are not being addressed in this riding,” he said.

Lest we forget Ted Dal lays a wreath at one of two pillars at the head of Beckwith Road where it intersects with Main Street on behalf of the English members of the Strathcona branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Jared Walker, left, was one of two Governor General’s Foot Guards who helped dignitaries lay their wreaths at the monument as part of an annual Remembrance Week parade on Sunday, Nov. 4. The march began at St. Paul’s University and ended with a full service in front of the pillars.

Low turnout at city budget meetings Lack of criticism indicates support for ‘stability’ budget, mayor says Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC - A sparse turnout and series of lengthy thankyou speeches characterized a low-key city budget public consultation on Nov. 1. Fewer than 10 questions were posed to city staff during the afternoon meeting at city hall – the third of four con-

sultations scheduled around the city to discuss the city’s spending plan for 2013. Mayor Jim Watson said the lack of attendance indicates general satisfaction with the budget, whereas in years past, hundreds of angry residents would show up in protest when they didn’t like something in the budget proposal. “I think there is generally a

sense that people are glad this isn’t’ a slash and burn exercise,” Watson said. “It’s not a particularly flashy budget, which I think at this time in our economic stage, people are looking for that kind of stable approach.” Watson said the city has scheduled one afternoon budget consultation in each of the past couple of years to give an opportunity for people who can’t come out to the rest of the meetings in the evening. “We wanted to give people an option of one afternoon because all the other meetings

are in the evenings,” Watson said. In 2011, the daytime consultation was the most heavily attended, Watson said. That wasn’t the case this year, with fewer than 20 members of the public in attendance at the 4 p.m. meeting. The session began with a presentation from city staff about the draft 2013 budget, which is scheduled to be debated by council and passed on Nov. 28. See BUDGET, page 5

EMC news - The federal government recently announced a contribution to Special Olympics Canada on the occasion of Special Olympics Canada’s Be a Fan Day. “Today, I am pleased to join our inspiring Special Olympians in celebrating the first Be a Fan Day,” said Minister of State (Sport) Bal Gosal. “As a proud supporter of Special Olympics Canada, our government is pleased to help spread awareness of athletes with intellectual disabilities and to recognize the outpouring of community support for these amazing role models. I encourage all Canadians to show their support for this wonderful campaign.” Special Olympics Canada

is a national not-for-profit organization that provides sport training and competition opportunities for more than 35,000 athletes of all ages and abilities with an intellectual disability. They are supported by 17,000 volunteers, including more than 13,500 trained coaches. Be a Fan Day is a nationwide celebration to honour achievements of the past while igniting the flame of hope for the future, to create awareness, to recruit new athletes, coaches and volunteers, and to celebrate the supporters. It also recognizes the important and special relationship that Special Olympics Canada has with the law enforcement community.

Special needs issues dominate provincial party’s platform Continued from page 1

compete with the three major parties. “We don’t have as much money as they do,” he said. When he ran during the last election Redins said he had a zero budget. “Funding was a major challenge during my last campaign. I had no money to start with but I just went for it and debated on social and other issues that matter most to people with special needs,” he said.

By continuing to run candidates in the provincial elections, Redins hopes that will help create pressure on the major parties to listen to issues that are important to people with disabilities and seniors. “It helps to get our message across and our ideas get heard,” he said. One of the major issues his party would be pushing hard for is introducing tougher drinking and driving laws, said Redins. “The cost of medical and the hardships it brings to families as a result of injuries is unimaginable,” said Redins. “We are into these for people with disabilities to have a say.”

It helps to get our message across and our ideas get heard. JOHN REDINS PARTY FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS CANDIDATE

“I tried all my best to get the message out, even without any advertising.” Redins said the party is increasing its presence on social media to help counter the funding gap. “We are increasing our visibility on social media to

FUNDING

While the idea of contesting all ridings province-wide may sound good for the party, Redins agrees it is hard to

get the message across - it is the only way we can get the message out for the time being,” he said. A general election has been widely expected in Ontario ever since Dalton McGuinty announced he was stepping down as premier. His announcement on Oct. 15 came amid opposition accusations that he misled the legislature over power plant cancellations that will cost taxpayers upwards of $230 million and pressure from teachers’ unions over his efforts to freeze their wages and take away their ability to strike. “From what I gather the opposition was stalling the bills. Basically, all three parties were playing political games and it wasn’t getting anything done,” said Redins. “So why bother sit in the legislature when you are not doing anything.” Redins is also an active member of ACORN Ottawa, which fights for social housing and poverty alleviation.

Budget means $67 hike for average taxpayer

City of Ottawa 2013 Draft Budget On October 24, City Council tabled the staff recommended 2013 draft budget, which proposes a 2.09% tax increase, the lowest annual increase in 6 years, a continued freeze on fees for City recreation programs and a transit-fare increase averaging 2.5%.

The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;stay the courseâ&#x20AC;? draft budget means the average homeowner in the urban area would pay an extra $67 on the municipal portion of their tax bill next year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the smallest tax increase in six years and at 2.09 per cent, it falls below city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to keep tax hikes to 2.5 per cent each year. The mayor said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a plan that mostly sees city services maintained and the continuation of existing projects, but not a lot of new spending. Representatives from the National Capital Heavy Construction Association continued their campaign to urge city officials to spend more on infrastructure renewal. Former mayorial candidate Mike McGuire bemoaned the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to biweekly garbage pickup and questioned the amount of money it would save the city. He was also concerned about the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt level, saying there is never a â&#x20AC;&#x153;good timeâ&#x20AC;? to borrow money. City treasurer Marian Simulik called McGuireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments â&#x20AC;&#x153;alarmistâ&#x20AC;? and said Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt is nowhere near a crisis level and is actually low per capita when compared to other large Canadian cities. But most of the residents in attendance had positive things

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

City manager Kent Kirkpatrick, Mayor Jim Watson and city treasurer Marian Simulik appear at a media briefing after presenting the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft 2013 budget on Oct. 24. to say about the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending on the arts, heritage and culture. Watson said people thanking him for the $1 million investment in the Arts, Heritage and Culture Plan had become a reoccurring theme during the consultations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they were pleasantly surprised that we had

passed that arts report that asked for $1 million and in fact weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re delivering on it,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there was almost a bit of surprise that: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh good, they said one thing and they actually did it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? In the past, councils would pass reports and then forget about funding them by the

time the budget rolled around, Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In years gone by there were massive cuts proposed to arts and culture, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have turned the corner and brought in a budget that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of big cuts and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of big spending, but is very much balanced,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Ward 22 Update

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean

Making room for a park

2013 DRAFT BUDGET PRESENTED TO CITY COUNCIL The 2013 draft budget was recently tabled at City Council. The draft budget balances efficiencies with long-term investment that will ensure a safe and prosperous city. Ottawa taxpayers want key public services delivered responsibly and efficiently. This budget will support and build our city, particularly in the high growth areas like Riverside South and Findlay Creek.

Three derelict buildings at the corner of Rideau and Charlotte streets start coming down on Oct. 29, making way for a potential temporary city-leased park on the Richcraft-owned Sandy Hill property.

I am particularly pleased that there will be funding for the future Environmental Assessment for the Airport Parkway Widening. The future widening will help ease congestion for residents in South Ottawa who commute to and from the downtown core. The environmental assessment is the prerequisite prior to any upgrades to this key roadway. There are also planned life-cycle renewals at the Fred Barrett Arena. I know many families, like my own use the Fred Barrett Arena for various activities and am pleased to see the city providing improvements to the facility.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

As a hockey dad, I am pleased the City will also maintain the freeze of Parks and Recreation fees which benefits the many residents and families who access these services. The complete draft budget is available online for your review at www.ottawa.ca. Over the coming weeks, I will be reviewing the budget in great detail and will be looking to the community for your feedback. The final budget debate will be held during the last week of November. BARRHAVEN-RIVERSIDE SOUTH RAPID TRANSIT ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT UPDATE The City’s Transportation Committee has approved the Environmental Assessment (EA) report for the future Barrhaven-Riverside South Bus Rapid Transit link. The EA is the prerequisite for the design and construction stage. The future rapid transit facility would include: • Dedicated bus lanes to be constructed in the existing median on Chapman Mills Drive in Barrhaven; • Dedicated bus lanes and a multi-use pathway to be constructed in Riverside South, along the alignment previously identified in the North-South LRT Environmental Assessment and the Riverside South Community Design Plan; • Dedicated bus lanes to be constructed in the median of the future Riverside South Town Centre area; • A future LRT/BRT transfer station in Riverside South Town Centre. The project will help to provide high-quality rapid transit service to the growing urban communities of Barrhaven and Riverside South and I look forward to continued transit investments in our community. REMEMBRANCE DAY CEREMONY AT MANOTICK LEGION I would like to invite residents to pay their respects to the men and women who have served our country. The Manotick Legion will host its Remebrance Day Parade and ceremony beginning at 11:00am at Branch 314, 5550 Ann Street. Veterans who wear their medals or uniforms may ride OC Transpo and Para Transpo for free during National Veterans’ Week from November 5 to 11. Companions accompanying veterans during National Veterans’ Week also ride free of charge. LAYING A WREATH IN HONOUR OF BRIAN GOOD If you are driving in Riverside South you may have noticed a wreath that was laid in honour of Trooper Brian Good at the street sign bearing his name. At the 2009 Candlelight Tribute for Veterans, the City of Ottawa dedicated a street in Riverisde South to Trooper Brian Good. The new street sign for Brian Good Avenue also includes a poppy design. Trooper Good was a member of ‘D’ Squadron, Royal Canadian Dragoons, and was deployed to southern Afghanistan with the 3rd Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group’s Renaissance Squadron. Lest we forget.

Please contact me if I can be of assistance. (613) 580-2751 Steve.Desroches@Ottawa.ca www.SteveDesroches.ca

Veterans march in the Strathcona Legion Branch 595’s annual parade down Main Street in Old Ottawa East on Sunday, Nov. 4. The parade began at Saint Paul University and travelled to Beckwith Road, where two memorial pillars stand. A full service included dignitaries laying wreaths, a moment of silence and playing of the Last Post.

Remembrance Day

Ottawa - A new report has just been released which reveals 7 costly mistakes that most homeowners make when selling their home, and a 9 Step System that can help you sell your home fast and for the most amount of money. This industry report shows clearly how the traditional ways of selling homes have become increasingly less and less effective in today’s market. The fact of the matter is that fully three quarters of homesellers don’t get what they want for their homes and become disillusioned and - worse - financially disadvantaged when they put their homes on the market. As this report uncovers, most homesellers make 7deadly mistakes

that cost them literally thousands of dollars. The good news is that each and every one of these mistakes is entirely preventable. In answer to this issue, industry insiders have prepared a free special report entitled “The 9 Step System to Get Your Home Sold Fast and For Top Dollar”. To order a FREE Special Report, visit www.OttawaSoldFast.org or to hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-888-313-7023and enter 1000.

Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic growth strategy on wrong track

T

he mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest bid to boost the local economy falls short in scope and runs the risk of at least being perceived as favouring certain businesses over others. During an event hosted last week by Mayor Jim Watson, a program called the Capital Investment Track was announced. Watson said the program would see the city provide assistance to business initiatives based on the potential to create at least

100 â&#x20AC;&#x153;quality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well-paying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; private sector jobs.â&#x20AC;? Economic development staff would help shepherd these projects through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulatory and administrative regime, making them the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priority. This program, while not an inherently bad idea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aimed at attracting investment and creating jobs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; puts the city in the position where it is picking and choosing what sorts of investment comes to Ottawa. On top

of the 100-job threshold, applicants from the life sciences, photonics, wireless, clean technology, aerospace, defence, film and television production, digital media and tourism sectors would also be considered for the Capital Investment Track. While this might appear to apply to a significant number of opportunities, in fact these employers represent a small fraction of the overall economy. Businesses with 100 or more people on the payroll

represent only 2.5 per cent of all employers in Ontario. In addition, with the exception of the tourism industry, the list of favoured sectors represents only a small slice of the total number of employers in the province and the types of jobs created would favour those with specialized experience and education. This means the city is offering to cut red tape for a group of businesses, including larger, better-financed firms, that are less likely to

need help navigating city hall than a business that employs four people, for example. Such small businesses represent more than 55 per cent of all employers in the province, and are often financed through the personal savings of the business owner. If the city truly wanted to attract investment, it would focus its efforts on cutting red tape for all types of businesses. This would maximize the potential number of jobs that could be created in

the city and would ensure opportunities are generated for residents from all walks of life, not just the highly educated. The spirit of the Capital Investment Track program is in the right place: helping to grow and diversify the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy, which will in turn provide jobs as the federal government scales back its civil servant workforce. But the program isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t playing fair when it comes to making Ottawa a more attractive destination for investment. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to set up or expand their shop in this city.

The calm before our storm CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

H

ere in the capital, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shaking our heads over how lightly we were touched by hurricane Sandy and its lengthy aftermath. What did we get? A little rain, a bit of wind. And how much do you want to bet that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all thinking: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to pay for it when winter comes.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fatalistic Canadian way of looking at it. If the weather spares us one day, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to whack us the next. And just to add an extra dimension, an extra level of unease, remember how easy last winter was? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get it, for sure. When I was a youngish writer at the Citizen, we used to scoff at a succession of editors and publishers who insisted that the paper feature a weather story prominently almost every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could the weather be news?â&#x20AC;? we wondered. Weather was just, well, weather. Turns out we were wrong. Even in those days readers were interested in weather and today there is much more weather to be interested in and it is more than a question of whether Friday will be a good day to play golf. Weather touches us in a way that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always like. We used to think that severe weather was fun. Nothing like a good storm to watch through the window or maybe even run around outside in for a while. After the ice storm of 1998 and the big winds of 2011, not to mention a couple of rather small but rather scary earthquakes, we know that much of the fun has gone out of such events. Given this, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that people are

paying more attention to the weather than they used to. They are encouraged in this by the news media, particularly all-news television, which have made the weather a large percentage of the news conversation even when there is no storm happening. Even a storm that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happened yet is news. The storm might be coming, destruction is threatened. There is a weather watch, a weather warning, a red swirl on a map and it could, maybe, affect you. The news media have learned that the story about the impending storm can have great value, even if the storm itself never materializes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of excitement in talking about the damage and devastation that might occur, great visuals in putting reporters in storm gear in front of the cameras in places where the storm hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrived yet and if the storm never arrives, well, it was exciting, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? The problem with this kind of coverage is that people get used to it, come to believe that any storm warnings are exaggerated. The media cry wolf. Who knows, it may be that some of the people who were victims of Sandy were outside because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the storm could be as bad as the media said it would be. In the United States, the discussion about the storm quickly shifted to a discussion about the electoral politics of the storm, but not about climate change, which nobody wanted to talk about in an election year. Maybe now that the two storms, the real one and the political one, have died down, the discussion about climate change can begin again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overdue. Many experts are saying that we are going to be seeing a lot more of this kind of weather. Many experts also say that our society can do something to reduce that likelihood by changing some aspects of our behaviour. How to bring that about will not be easy and will not be without sacrifice, but it is the kind of question that needs to be debated fully. Maybe that debate can start. In the meantime, we in the capital will go on being thankful for the weather we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have and waiting confidently for things to get worse.

ever go shopping with your kids. Well, never go shopping with my six-year-old. He can be extremely persuasive. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the type to whine or beg. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so subtle that I usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working on me until after Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already purchased the not-on-the-list item. Just the other day we were at Value Village looking for a couple of very specific formal wear items for the children to wear as a one-off to an upcoming family wedding. As I was perusing the baby outfits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not on the list, but evidently a good deal (failure one for the impulse buyer) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my son said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom, when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have a look over there,â&#x20AC;? and he pointed to boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; outerwear.

Thank you Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I leave you with a fond farewell,â&#x20AC;? Oct. 25, Ottawa South EMC. I became familiar with Pat Trewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stuff column over the last year through the local newspaper.

Following my precise method, he started flipping hangers, rapidly sifting through the â&#x20AC;&#x153;junkâ&#x20AC;? until he came across what he wanted: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see this vest, Mom. I think it would help to keep my chest warm this winter.â&#x20AC;? Interesting. I kind of knew at this point that he was after something. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not getting that today,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, I know,â&#x20AC;? he said, and he continued flipping the hangers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good one,â&#x20AC;? he said, and he removed the vest from the rack. He put it on and began to play with the zipper.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think this is the one,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a zipper and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have very good luck with zippers.â&#x20AC;? In hindsight, that was the turning point. In a very refined fashion, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d given me a problem to solve and I totally took on the challenge. As a result, I assumed the task of hanger flipping, looking for a nice, warm vest, with buttons. We found one for him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; very good quality, waterproof, with goose down filling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and into the cart it went. It was only $6, but it was $6 I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intended to spend. My son is like that little voice inside my head. Even

I looked forward to reading the columns for the interesting recipes provided, but also for the extra explanations that were included. These small details made all the difference in understanding cooking chemistry. Although my mother tried to teach me the art of cooking, it is only in the

last few years that I have developed any interest and I am 60 years old. Please thank Pat Trew for keeping this new found interest alive, but especially wish her full recovery and many years of health and happiness on my behalf. Micheline Cardamore

if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have kids, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve experienced it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the voice that gets a little bored waiting in line at the checkout and whispers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you need batteries.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the voice that ever so quietly says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;buying a $6-magazine that tells you how to save money will help you to save money ... on your next trip.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the biggest causes of overspending in the 35-55 age group is impulse purchases,â&#x20AC;? says Judi Cane, a planner with Money Coaches Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have $800per-month grocery bills, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize that half of that is spent on non-grocery items that they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need.â&#x20AC;? Cane says retailers like Walmart, Costco and Loblaw have effectively tapped into our internal human weakness to buy things we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At Costco, you have to walk past aisles and aisles of non-grocery items â&#x20AC;&#x201C; everything from printer toner

to eyeglasses and books â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before you get to the food,â&#x20AC;? says Cane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And even if Walmart has a separate door for the grocery department, they put things in the aisles that will tempt you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get out of there with just groceries.â&#x20AC;? Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the grocery store that gets us. Canadian Tire has enormous bins of small items at the checkout quietly calling out to you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty easy to go into the store for a $10 bag of road salt and come out with bags full of stuff like flashlights, chewing gum, even books,â&#x20AC;? says Cane. On the last Friday of each month, Cane and her Ottawa colleagues of Money Coaches Canada are offering free seminars on financial management. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;money town hall,â&#x20AC;? as Cane describes it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity for people to raise any financial questions

they may have in a relaxed and open forum. Octoberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Money Monday was held at Caffe Latte Cino in Orleans on Oct. 29. Eight weeks before Christmas, overspending was a hot topic. Caneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best advice? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before you go shopping, make sure you know exactly what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to buy and only pay cash,â&#x20AC;? says Cane. She admits this is much easier said than done and that most of her clients donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realize how much theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overspending until she forces them to take a good look at their grocery bills. But committing to your list can make hundreds of dollars a month difference. November is financial literacy month in Canada. So why not take the first step toward good money management â&#x20AC;&#x201C; make a list and stick to it. Oh, and never take my six-year-old shopping with you.

Grade 8 students exposed to career opportunities Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thousands of Ottawa students received some career advice during two job forums hosted by the Ottawa public and Catholic school boards at the Ernst and Young Centre on Oct. 30 and 31. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli was peppered with questions about his job at city hall by some of the students attending the Catholic boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WRK 4U2 (work for you too) forum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I (was) getting questions like what do you do on a daily basis; how many hours a week do you work; do you get a long with your colleaguesâ&#x20AC;Ś that sort of thing,â&#x20AC;? said Egli. More than 7,500 Grade 8 students attended the WRK 4U2 and the public boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WOW (world of work) forums. The sessions provided students with the chance to meet and talk with community leaders, business men and women as well as their fellow secondary school students who have work co-op experience. Grade 8 is a pivotal year for students to become aware of what possible career opportunities await them in their com-

munity as well as academic pathways that lead to these opportunities, Egli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is a good event. It gives the kids an opportunity to see all sorts of different kinds of jobs and ask questions. It is the first time I have done it and I think it is fabulous,â&#x20AC;? said Egli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a tough decision we ask children to make at 17 or 18 years of age, and I think this is a good way to get them some help with background to make that decision.â&#x20AC;? Grade 8 student Patrick MacCarthy from St. Matthew High School was excited to engage the councillor and get to know what his duties and responsibilities were at city hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very interested in politics and I hope to work in government one day, so it is nice to get to know the different aspects of being a councillor,â&#x20AC;? said MacCarthy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I asked him what his duties are, different projects he handles in his ward and how he got elected.â&#x20AC;? MacCarthy added that the two-day annual academic and career exploration forum allowed him to learn about a variety of career paths open to him.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is good for people to know different trades that are available to them, because a lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know all these trades are available,â&#x20AC;? he said. Students such as Kenneth Rending, a Grade 12 student at St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School,were on hand to explain what happens while working in a co-op placement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very important because it makes students know what it is to be in (the) work field instead of being stuck in a classroom,â&#x20AC;? said Rending â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are in a work field, you are learning...hands on and you learn more.â&#x20AC;? Rending who hopes to pursue a career in architectural design, said he was getting a lot of questions ranging from how co-op placement works, what it is like and what the hours are.

Kenneth Rending, a Grade 12 student from St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School provides information at the 10thannual Grade 8 studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic pathways and career opportunities show on Oct. 31 at the Ernst and Young Centre.

City to fast track some new businesses Program should apply to all businesses: deputy mayor laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mayor Jim Watson announced two new projects aimed at boosting private sector jobs in Ottawa last week. One of the ideas, called the Capital Investment Track, would see the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development staff â&#x20AC;&#x153;shepherdâ&#x20AC;? all the permits and applications they need to fast-track their entry into the Ottawa market. New businesses looking to come to Ottawa or local businesses that want to expand would qualify if they offer the potential to create or retain 100 or more jobs, or if the industry is considered to be one of the priority sectors outlined in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development strategy: life sciences, photonics, wireless, â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean tech,â&#x20AC;? aerospace and defence, film/television/digital media and tourism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through this program, the city will select projects, investments or developments based on their potential to create at least 100 quality, wellpaying private-sector jobs to receive special attention from the economic development department,â&#x20AC;? Watson said during his speech to the business

community during the inaugural State of the Economy event at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier on Nov. 1. The move is aimed at cutting some red tape for some businesses, but at least one councillor thinks it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go far enough. West Carleton-March councillor and Deputy Mayor Eli El-Chantiry said the project sounds like a good idea, but said the city needs to do more to make it easier for any business to come to Ottawa and create jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be critical of the mayor,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What he is saying is â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;We have to do more to draw those investments to our city and to our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be honest â&#x20AC;Ś I am never comfortable with municipalities pick and choosing between companies. All the companies coming to our city creating new jobs and creating new jobs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we should welcome all of the initiatives,â&#x20AC;? El-Chantiry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to change the way the city does business.â&#x20AC;? Talking to reporters after his speech, the mayor said the initiative will probably help five or six businesses a year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the total number of businesses of that size that

staff expect will approach the city each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening with the state of our economy and the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve actually seen the unemployment rate go up over the last couple of months and we see the trend in terms of the shrinking public service, we have to be more aggressive and try a number of measures to attract more businesses to create more economic opportunities,â&#x20AC;? the mayor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can offer what could be considered a higher level of service that is going to attract those companies that bring jobs, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for it.â&#x20AC;? A former small businessman himself, El-Chantiry said bureaucratic delays have an even worse impact on entrepreneurs who want to set up a small business and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something he wants to change. El-Chantiry sits on a group with economic development staff and said he is always working behind the scenes to cut red tape. The focus on â&#x20AC;&#x153;high-paying jobsâ&#x20AC;? is also something that concerned El-Chantiry, who said Ottawa needs any and all types of jobs. But overall, El-Chantiry was just happy to see an effort R0011727279/1108

The Capital Investment Track program wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost any extra money -- the economic development department will shift around staff time to make

it happen. Another announcement Watson made was the addition of a statistics and mapping tool called Locate Ottawa.

Route 87 to St. Patrick’s Home to be reinstated before Christmas eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – OC Transpo will restore Route 87 connecting St. Patrick’s Home and other locations near Mooney’s Bay, but on a limited basis. Starting on Dec. 23, the route will provide twice-aday bus runs for a trial period, after which a decision will be made whether to permanently reinstate the service based on passenger usage. The news of the soon to be reinstated route received mixed reaction from former users. “I think it should be frequent like it was before,” said Linda Marrella, an employee at St. Pat’s. “There are a lot of residents here that people come to visit, but they have to walk quite a distance to get here. Many people don’t come here anymore because of that long walk. “They should have never cancelled that route.” The closest stop now is Ridgewood Avenue, roughly half a kilometre from the facility’s door. Maryan Bertrand said the city shouldn’t limit the bus service to only twice a day. “We want regular bus ser-

vice here like we had before. That is what I want,” said Bertrand. “Currently it takes me an hour to get to work and it is worse in winter.” The service was axed last year, one of several OC Transpo route changes to help the city save $20 million annually. From the time that route change was announced last year up until recently, River Coun. Maria McRae said she has done her best to let the transit commission and staff at OC Transpo know that she didn’t support that route change. “Certainly, at the time of the change I referenced not just the inconvenience but the hardship that I thought that change would bring to the volunteers, staff, visitors or people going to St. Pat’s home, which is an icon in the city,” said McRae. “The time that happened, I signaled very early that this could be an issue.” McRae said she hopes the partial reinstatement will make staff understand how important that route is to the community for many different reasons. “Pretty much since the change took place, I have been hearing back from the

community as to the hardship that the change created. “I certainly sympathize with people’s concerns and I am looking forward to the continuing collection of the information so that OC Transpo can actually see the full impact,” she said. A transit user who only identified herself as Theresa said two bus runs a day won’t help at all. “I don’t see why they can’t put it back the way it was the first time. It has affected the volunteers here and family members because it is too far for them to walk,” she said. Karen McDonald said she would prefer the route provided service every 30 minutes. “It doesn’t look like a long walk but when you start walking it is a long one,” she said. “I can imagine the pain the spouses of our residents and volunteers go through.” McRae encouraged Route 87 users to provide her with feedback regarding the pilot program, and to tell her how important that route is to them. “The more information we can collect the more it is reasonable to offer empirical evidence to staff as to the importance of this route,” she said.

Rural Para Transpo service hits a bump Emma Jackson and Laura Mueller emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Six months after making sweeping changes to how disabled people get around by transit in the rural area, many people are wellserved, but some are being left at the curb. Para Transpo partnered with three rural community support service agencies in April to provide trips within rural areas, but in the process cut out people who can’t transfer out of their wheelchairs or scooters into a vehicle. The problem has led at least one Ottawa resident to speculate about filing a human rights complaint, according to Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Wilkinson referenced the specter of a human rights case during a transit commission meeting on Oct. 17 “They haven’t sent it in yet, but I have been told by someone that they’re considering it, in that people are giving differential services … based on where they live,” Wilkinson said. Jennifer Lockyer, transportation manager for Rural Ottawa South Support Services (ROSSS), said there’s a gap in the system now that Para Transpo has stopped doing rural-to-rural trips, because the community support services don’t have wheelchairaccessible vehicles. Lockyer said the agreement signed six months ago between the three community support services and OC Transpo provided funding for the agencies in east, west and rural Ottawa to increase transit service for seniors and adults with physical disabilities. However, Lockyer said it was clear the agencies can only serve residents who can transfer independently in and out of vehicles. “That very much was laid out that we can’t provide transportation right now for people in wheelchairs because we don’t have the equipment or the expertise,” Lockyer said. But after the agencies took over rural-to-rural transportation on April 1, Para Transpo stopped providing rural-torural trips altogether. Now, rural residents who can’t transfer out of their wheelchair or scooter can only get to appointments us-

ing an accessible taxi. Para Transpo offers taxi discount coupons for its passengers, but the trips are sometimes more expensive than regular Para Transpo service. “We weren’t under the impression (the agreement) was going to replace (Para Transpo), but it kind of did in the end. Para Transpo announced after the fact that they weren’t going to continue their rural-to-rural trips,” Lockyer said. Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit service planning and reporting, said OC Transpo and the community support service agencies have been discussing ways to provide rural-to-rural transportation for the affected passengers, but said a possible human rights case is not something that’s driving those talks. “We don’t know anything about a human rights claim at all,” Scrimgeour said. Wilkinson said she is glad OC Transpo is looking at the problem, because she agrees the restrictions amount to a human rights issue. “I’m really concerned that they won’t take them to any rural location in Ottawa,” Wilkinson said. “I just don’t know how they’re getting there.” There is no obligation for Para Transpo to provide this type of service for that small number of customers, said Scrimgeour. “We’re looking into how best to accommodate those peoples’ travel needs, but there is no obligation,” Scrimgeour said. “The policy decision taken by the (transit) commission is that Para Transpo service is provided for those trips between rural areas and urban areas,” Scrimgeour said. LEFT BEHIND

Last year, there were fewer than 120 Para Transpo trips made by 19 customers who must remain in their wheelchair or scooter during the trip between two rural locations, Scrimgeour said. Between 80 and 90 per cent of the trips were made by four Para Transpo customers, he said. “So that’s the total number of people we’re talking about here,” Scrimgeour said. “It’s a small number of people.” Most of the trips are a short distance, including one-

While rural service agencies are now able to provide more trips for mobility-challenged people, a human rights complaint looms due to an inability to transport passengers who must remain in their wheelchairs. third of the trips within the village of Richmond. Those are the types of trips that rack up a lot of mileage on Para Transpo vehicles that must drive out from the urban area to take people several blocks, before driving back into the city. “It’s going to be expensive (to operate),” Scrimgeour said. Another thing to keep in mind is a change to the taxi bylaw that makes it obligatory for cabs to pick up disabled passengers in the rural area. “Certainly, for some of the short trips, that becomes a decent alternative for travelers,” Scrimgeour said. The option of providing a requirement or incentive for rural service providers to offer more accessible, wheelchair-friendly service was discussed, Scrimgeour said, but the city and the agencies decided to go a different route. “We talked about that issue with them,” Scrimgeour said. “Their way of operating – partly with regular cars, partly with vans, partly with volunteers and partly with paid staff – wasn’t adaptable. They didn’t have the equipment needed to move

the wheelchairs while they’re travelling. But we’re talking to them about it now. “They, and we, together recognize there is a gap,” he said. Whether that means Para Transpo will return to providing some rural-to-rural trips or the support services will begin to offer wheelchair-accessible service remains to be seen, Lockyer said. Regardless, she said she’s confident the city and the agencies will find a solution. “I’m amazed with the working relationship that we have in the city, and we all see there’s a gap here. It might mean bringing in another partner, but the collaboration has been very open,” she said. SUCCESSFUL START

Lockyer said the agreement’s first six months have been successful despite the wheelchair accessibility issue. The agreement transferred $379,515 of Para Transpo’s rural budget to the three agencies – Rural Ottawa South Support Services, the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre and the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre – to help them in-

crease their service levels. Beginning April 1, the agencies surpassed their target by more than 1,000 new rides, providing an additional 2,512 rides as a result of the city’s funding. The money is covering vehicle maintenance and fuel, as well as extra staff to co-ordinate rides. At the same time, the city put in a flat fare of $8.25 for rural Para Transpo trips. That far is lower than what passengers would have paid before for almost 94 per cent of rural Para Transpo trips. Previously, fares ranged from $4 to $18.25 depending on the distance between stops. By contrast, an urban Para Transpo trip is $3.25 or $4.25. Lockyer said the agencies are trying to use more agency vans instead of volunteers in personal vehicles, because it’s more efficient. A volunteer driver often only takes one client at a time, whereas a van can take several clients to the same day program at once. This system is also more efficient than Para Transpo, which rarely consolidated trips with multiple clients in one van. This meant that two or three Para Transpo vans

would often all arrive at the same location with one passenger each, instead of having the clients come together. Community support services also offer an advantage because they can provide cross-border trips outside the city of Ottawa, Lockyer said. “If you have a client in Osgoode that needs to go to the Winchester hospital, the agencies can do that, where Para Transpo can’t,” she said. But the support services still face challenges in the next six months of the pilot program. Basic marketing is needed to attract former Para Transpo clients, Lockyer said. The agencies are currently offering a “first ride free” program to entice new clients, and are spreading the word that community support service transit is cost effective. Lockyer said that depending on the mileage, some trips are actually cheaper than using Para Transpo, while long distances can be more expensive. The agencies also have a limited schedule, only operating between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays, which they are trying to change. Lockyer said they are looking at adding Sunday “church runs.”

Raceway celebrates 50th anniversary in face of uncertain future Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Rideau Carleton Raceway opened its doors in 1962, and while the track has remained a steady 5/8ths of a mile, the rest of the facility has been growing ever since. Alongside live harness racing three days a week, the track on Albion Road south of Ottawa has spent the past 50 years turning itself into a successful entertainment centre. In 2000, the entire building was overhauled when the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation partnered with the raceway to bring more than 1,200 slot machines to the centre. In 2011, the slots facility also added a number of virtual gaming tables offering black jack, baccarat and roulette. The raceway has also added many â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;simulcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; racing stations for patrons who want to bet at tracks across the continent. A large bingo hall on the third ďŹ&#x201A;oor has also been added, which beneďŹ ts 28 local charities. The dining room has been reconďŹ gured since the raceway was ďŹ rst built, and accommodates 650 people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an advantage for the many community groups who use the space to fundraise for their various charities and causes. Countless â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Night at the Racesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fundraisers have been held

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

The Rideau Carleton Raceway marked its 50th anniversary last week with a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun zone overlooking the track. RCR employee Rebecca Ferriss joins Doug and Debby Pearson, who brought their granddaughter Skylyn Thomas out for some pre-Halloween fun. for charities, and 25 countrythemed nights were held in the past year, with Italy and Switzerland proving some of the most popular. The site has also hosted 16 Gloucester Fairs and the now-defunct Capital Hoedown. Many a successful horse has crossed the ďŹ nish line here, including Majestic Sun, who holds the Canadian record for fastest mile, Bestofbest Hanover and Intimidate.

Canadian hall of fame driver HervĂŠ Filion â&#x20AC;&#x153;cut his teethâ&#x20AC;? here, as did many other successful drivers, said track announcer and spokesperson Norm Borg. The life-long racing fan said the game is changing, but the racetrack is adapting and continues to be a pillar in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a family tradition for a lot of families, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been passed on for genera-

tions,â&#x20AC;? Borg said. On Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, the dining room and grand stand are packed with people out for a good time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Borg said they can get rowdy in their excitement to see their horse win. Many people who come to the races donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about harness racing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care to â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and are there simply to enjoy the atmosphere and perhaps put $20 on

a horse they can cheer for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can not beat this economical, value-added family entertainment,â&#x20AC;? Borg said. UNCERTAIN FUTURE

On the weekend of Oct. 27, the raceway held two days of 50th anniversary celebrations for kids and fans, and even had drivers from the 1960s come to tell their stories. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bittersweet time to

be celebrating a 50th anniversary, Borg said, ever since the Ontario government ended its Slots at Raceways program in an effort to save about $345 million it said could be better used for health care and education programs. Now, the OLG is looking to build a new casino in Ottawa and would prefer it to be located downtown instead of at the raceway. But Borg said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeling a bit better since Premier Dalton McGuinty stepped down on Oct. 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a little sweeter, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a change of governance if not a change of government, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every indication that the alternative attitudes are different,â&#x20AC;? Borg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling a little better today than I was in March (when the Slots at Racetracks program was cancelled).â&#x20AC;? Borg is conďŹ dent the racetrack has another 50 years left in her. He said the horse racing game is changing with improved technology like simulcasting from other racetracks across North America, but it also has an opportunity to attract new fans through the through spillover from its bingo hall, current slot machine patrons and families who come for the Sunday buffet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be fewer racetracks, but we will survive and beneďŹ t from the shrinkage,â&#x20AC;? he said.



     The Snowsuit Fund and the thousands of children it serves thank the many generous sponsors, donors and attendees who made this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian Tire Snowsuit Fund Gala such a success. Their generosity helped raise enough funds to dress over 1850 underprivileged local children in warm snowsuits this winter.

Hydro Ottawa crews help U.S. utilities after Hurricane Sandy A group of 13 Hydro Ottawa power line maintainers are in Connecticut to assist Northeast Utilities in restoring power to approximately 354,000 residents after Hurricane Sandy caused significant damage to the area. “Hydro Ottawa offered assistance without hesitation. Restoring power is a specialized skill and the electricity industry supports each other in these times of need,” said Bryce Conrad, Hydro Ottawa’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Ottawa escaped the storm relatively unscathed. At its peak the storm knocked out power to approximately 3,000 Hydro Ottawa customers in the Casselman, Blackburn Hamlet, Crystal Beach and Merivale areas. Crews worked to successfully restore power across the city and our now able to support other communities in need of help. The Hydro Ottawa crews are working outside Danielson, Connecticut where high winds and falling trees have downed power lines and damaged poles. “When power outages occur, Hydro Ottawa employees go above and beyond to ensure public safety and to get the power back on as soon as possible,” added Conrad. “I am proud that these crews will be using these talents to help our U.S. neighbours.” This is the first time Hydro Ottawa has dispatched crews to the United States. During past widespread power outages, crews have assisted utilities in Ontario and Quebec. The 13 power line maintainers join 12 Hydro Ottawa contract forestry workers who are clearing trees in Connecticut to restore the power.

New treatment shows promise tein peptide that may be a new type of highly targeted treatment to prevent smoking relapse,” says Dr. Fang Liu, senior scientist in CAMH’s Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute and professor in the department of psychiatry at the University of Toronto.

Liu and her team initially found that nicotine exposure can enhance binding between two types of brain receptors and were able to generate a protein peptide to disrupt the binding of the two receptors. Working with CAMH senior scientist Dr. Anh Dzung Le, the peptide was then

tested in an animal model of relapse. As anticipated, it had the effect of reducing attempts to seek nicotine. A year after treatment with current medications, only about 20 per cent of people remain abstinent, past research shows.

The passports will be available for a five-year or 10-year passport for adults, with children’s passports issued for a five-year maximum. The passports will be available to everyone in the summer. Passport Canada began an ePassport pilot project for diplomatic and special passports in 2009. The passport includes a range of historic Canadian images, from Samuel de Champlain to the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. And as for Ottawa-specific images, Samuel de Champlain is featured in the form of a statue at Nepean Point.

Amesbury was able to snag the pass, made during a semifinal touch football game for the city’s public elementary schools on Oct. 30 at the Nepean Sportsplex.

Changes to Curbside Residual Waste

Quality Home Builders Since 1992

Several important changes in solid waste collection began the week of October 29, 2012. Residual household waste is collected every two weeks and the green bin is collected every week. Blue and black box collection will continue to alternate weeks. As part of these changes, all households in River Ward received a new solid waste collection day. The City informed residents about these changes through a personalized letter that was sent by mail after Thanksgiving. You can confirm your collection schedule by checking your Waste Collection Calendar online at Ottawa.ca. You can also sign up to receive personalized reminders about your collection schedule via e-mail, phone or Twitter by visiting Ottawa.ca or by calling 3-1-1 (613-580-2400). You can also visit my website at MariaMcRae.ca, which has a detailed map identifying your new collection day. One of the best ways to adapt to bi-weekly waste collection is to reduce the total amount of waste your household produces and maximize the use of the City’s recycling programs. More information about recycling is available at Ottawa.ca. You can place out an unlimited amount of recycling on each collection day.

Asbestos registry needed: cancer society EMC news - The majority of Canadians are sending a clear message that a public registry of buildings containing asbestos, including private homes, is important and 78 per cent say it’s the responsibility of the federal government to create one, according to poll results released by the Canadian Cancer Society. The Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Medical Association have joined forces in urging the federal government to establish one central public registry of all buildings in Canada that contain asbestos. The registry should be free, easily accessible and include privately owned buildings, buildings on aboriginal lands and government-owned structures. “We know all forms of asbestos cause cancer and creating a public registry is a crucial first step in making sure Canadians are not exposed to this harmful substance,” says Dan Demers, director of public issues at the Canadian Cancer Society. “Once it’s known that a building contains asbestos then appropriate action can be taken to protect people from this substance.” From the 1920s to 1990s, asbestos was used as insulation and sound proofing in buildings throughout Canada. It is estimated that 240,000 homes across the country were insulated with materials that might contain asbestos, but the public can’t find out which buildings contain the asbestos and the list may not be complete. Extended and frequent exposure to asbestos is associated with lung cancer and mesothelioma, a rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity.

Poll results also reveal that: • Almost half of Canadians – 46 per cent – know nothing or only a little about how to protect themselves from exposure to asbestos. Only 21 % say they know a lot. • A large majority of Canadians – 94% – say the federal government should be responsible for ensuring Canadians understand the risk of asbestos and for informing them about how they can protect themselves from this substance. Worldwide about 107,000 people die annually from disease related to occupation exposure to asbestos. The Canadian Cancer So-

ciety believes all efforts must be made to end exposure to asbestos. The society cautions Canadians that if they know they have asbestos in their homes that needs to be removed they should hire a professional contractor experienced in asbestos removal. Homeowners should not attempt to remove the substance themselves. The poll results are based on a telephone survey conducted by the Environics Research Group with a representative sample of 1,000 Canadians. The margin of error for a sample of this size is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

REAL ESTATE THIS WEEK MADD kicks off 25th Project Red Ribbon campaign Gale Real Estate BROKERAGE

INDEPENDENTLY OWNED AND OPERATED

Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada got its red ribbon awareness campaign underway on Parliament Hill on Nov. 1, an event that marked the 25th year of the annual effort to promote safe and sober driving. “For a quarter century, MADD Canada’s red ribbon has been a simple yet powerful symbol of the fight against impaired driving,” said Gaetan Gendron, vice-president of MADD Ottawa “We want our red ribbons to be seen everywhere, as reminder that it is

never acceptable to drive impaired.” He cited statistics that between 1,250 and 1,500 Canadians are killed and more than 63,000 injured in impaired driving incidents each year. “These deaths and injuries are senseless and completely preventable.” Those who become involved in MADD Canada often do so in the wake of a personal tragedy involving impaired driving. Gendron is one such person, as was special guest Marjory LeBreton, leader of the government in the Senate. LeBreton, who lost her only

daughter and first-born grandson to an impaired driver, has been a steadfast supporter of impaired driving legislation and enhanced victim’s rights throughout her career. “To me, this red ribbon is a

symbol of both safety and the victim,” she said. “If everyone takes one of these red ribbons and truly thinks of the message behind it and then makes the commitment to never drive impaired,

imagine the impact it would have. Imagine the crashes that could be prevented. Imagine the physical and emotional pain that could be prevented. That is the hope of the red ribbon campaign.” LeBreton acknowledged the progress made throughout the 25 years of the campaign, adding there is still “a great deal of work yet to be done.” In addition to the volunteers who help implement the red ribbon campaign throughout Canadian communities, MADD Canada’s biggest partner is the law enforcement community. Before moving to Ottawa, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson served in several British Columbia jurisdictions between 1985 and 2005. See RCMP on page 25.

RCMP commissioner Bob Paulson was among the speakers at the Nov. 1 launch of MADD Canada’s Project Red Ribbon awareness campaign. This year’s campaign marks the 25th year that MADD Canada has asked Canadians to show their support for the victim’s of impaired driving crashes.

RCMP behind campaign Continued from page 24

During his days as an officer, Paulson saw the tragic results of impaired driving all too often. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am proud and eager to lend the RCMPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support to the launch of the 25th annual red ribbon campaign,â&#x20AC;? said Paulson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although education and law enforcement efforts have helped to reduce the threat, this deadly behavior is still a problem in Canada.â&#x20AC;? Paulson mentioned the number of Canadians who die each year in impaired driving incidents are three times the number of those murdered, showing there are still too many people are engaging in this dangerous activity and too many looking the other way when they see someone doing it. This message was repeated by OPP Chief Superintendent Gary Couture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The (OPP), together with MADD and our partners, continue to work towards raising awareness, to educate communities through campaigns like this one,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to eradicate impaired driving. We will continue to fight this crime, not only now but all the time, 365 days a year.â&#x20AC;? The OPP, like the RCMP, will be flying red ribbons as they conduct enforcement on the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads.

Sugar bowl more than just egg money Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories ing hers alone though. Sadly Mother soon found out what she meant. Now, about the egg money. It was Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares doorto-door. At the first, Mother thought that that meant just peddling eggs. But Aunt Bertha was quick to show her how she could add greatly to her egg money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just from selling eggs, you know,â&#x20AC;? she told Mother. Everyone in Renfrew likes a fresh chicken now and again Aunt Bertha said. Soon Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Once she tried selling small braided rugs and hand sewn aprons, but she soon found out the women of Renfrew were just as busy as she was making rugs and aprons. Aunt Bertha said the money could be used for any-

thing she wanted: new print from Walker Store or maybe a fresh pair of lisle stockings. But Mother had other plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay of course, which was always a fear deep in my heart, because she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a visit, to spend a few days with her friend Rosie and maybe go to an opera again or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York and her wish was that one day there would be enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. Often, at night, she would take the bowl down from the back-to-the-wall cupboard and spread the money out on the oilcloth on the kitchen table. She would count and stack the coins in order and if there were any bills, she

Cancer society volunteer thanked for leadership Joan Shouldice

Barry Bokhaut is the 2012 recipient of the Celebrating Leadership Award of the Canadian Cancer Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa unit. Bokhaut has been a peer support volunteer since October 2001 and continues to vol-

unteer in that role. In addition, he has served as community services chair, Ottawa advisory board member, peer support convener, community services trainer, peer interviewer and community representative. Peer support volunteers are cancer survivors who have â&#x20AC;&#x153;been there, done that.â&#x20AC;? Then

they use their experience to support others going through the process. Bokhautâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal struggle was with cancer of the esophagus. He has been a survivor for 12 years now. Altogether, Bokhaut has helped 94 clients nationwide as well as their family mem-

bers, some for as long as two years. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of times dipping into the well of an experience a lot of people would rather forget. Bokhaut has been profiled on recruitment flyers, and speaks at Relay For Life survivor receptions and other events.

he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard and take down the blue bowl and take out a few coins or one or two of the bills, cram them into his pocket and quietly leave the house. Not a word would be

spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store with a few coins from Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. It was at those times that I would know once again Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

would flatten them out and put a salt shaker on them to hold them flat. Then she would write the amount and the date on a slip of paper and tuck it into the sugar bowl with the money and back it would go on the shelf in the cupboard. There would be a big sigh. Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat -- the reason was much simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall pockets. So when something wore out, like it often did on the farm or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well-patched ones on the car or even maybe a new plow point, it was into the egg money Father would go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door and pause as if

t was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money and not the jug was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside, sort of. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission, although sometimes, if we had tired of looking around the Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue in an evening of sitting around the kitchen table, Mother would let me take down the sugar bowl and count her egg money. Mother never heard of egg money when she moved to that back woods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York. But it was Aunt Bertha and Mrs. Beam, too, who told her about saving a penny here and a penny there. It was to be hers alone. Mrs. Beam snorted when she told mother about it be-

South Korean Ambassador Cho Hee-yong and his wife, Lee Yang show off one of the many examples of Korean culture at their home in Rockcliffe Park. The Hae-Tae, Hee-yong said, fights off danger and stops disasters. The ambassador’s home is one of the stops on this year’s the Hospice for May Court’s Home for the Holidays tour.

No passports needed for Korean culture experience Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The South Korean ambassador is offering residents of Ottawa a rare opportunity to visit a portion of his homeland without needing a passport. To mark the 50th anniversary of South Korea-Canada diplomatic relations, the ambassador’s home at 540 Acacia Ave. in Rockcliffe Park will participate in the popular Homes for the Holidays tour in support of the Hospice at May Court. The way Ambassador Cho Hee-yong sees it, ticket holders get to take an afternoon tour of a piece of Korea without having to go through airport security or bringing along a passport.

Ottawa South EMC - Thursday, November 8, 2012

“There are not a lot of opportunities to invite Canadian friends into our home, but this time, our friends can come onto Korean territory without their passport,” Hee-yong said. The ambassador and his wife, Lee Yang, arrived in Ottawa only three months ago and new to the diplomatic position, the couple were more than happy to participate in the event. “It is a shame to enjoy this wonderful house just all to ourselves,” Yang said. Homes for the Holidays, a charity house tour event, helps support palliative and end-oflife care programs at the Hospice at May Court. Now in its 10th year, Jana Rand, manager of fund devel-

opment for the hospice, noted the fundraiser aims to raise $150,000 for the hospice, only a small fraction of the $1.3 million the organization needs to raise to run its programming. “It is our largest fundraiser of the year,” Rand said. “We need the funding to help keep our doors open.” The participation from the South Korean Embassy will unofficially launch celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of South Korean-Canadian relations. In 2013, the embassy will host a number of events, which mark the importance of the relationship between the two countries. See KOREAN, page 29

Korean Ambassador welcomes thousands into home for charity Continued from page 28

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is harmonizing the Korean culture and the Canadian culture,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are

Canadian you can enjoy the Korean art and culture, if you are Korean, you have a chance to learn a little about Canadian culture.â&#x20AC;? Seven homes across Manotick, the Glebe and Rockcliffe Park have been chosen for the tour this year, which allows residents to visit the special homes all dressed up for Christmas while supporting the Old Ottawa South palliative care centre. The hospice aimed to have all the homes offer something

different for the ticket holders. One of the Glebe homes on the tour, 196 Glebe Ave., features a garden designed by Oprah Winfreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resident gardener. One of the Manotick homes on the tour this year, located at 5572 Carrison Dr., is a French country-style home designed by U.S. architect Jack Arnold. The three-day event begins on Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. and unlike some of the homeowners, Hee-yong and Yang will be in

the home during the tours to share some of their knowledge about Korean and the house. To help things run smoothly, nearly 300 volunteers to help the hundreds of visitors ďŹ le through the homes. The homes are decorated with ďŹ&#x201A;owers from local ďŹ&#x201A;orists, all of whom donate their time and their stock to the cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is amazing what they can do with the homes,â&#x20AC;? Rand said. The May Court Club of Ot-

tawa, located in front of the hospice will also take part in the tour, offering a pit-stop for ticket holders, to grab a coffee or tea, or a desert. Rand said the May Court Club boutique will sell jams and jellies and crafts throughout the weekend. Tickets for the Nov. 9 to 11 event are $40 and can be purchased at the hospice, at 114 Cameron Ave., online at www.hospicemaycourt.com or at one of the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraiserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners, listed on the hospiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website.

Hee-yong boasts that with more than 15,000 South Koreans visiting Canada each month and more than 1,000 teaching visas issued to Canadians just last week, the relationship is only getting stronger.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very encouraging, the exchange of young people between the two countries,â&#x20AC;? he said. The home is a remarkable stone home in Rockcliffe Park, originally purchased by the government of South Korea in 1979. The home, Hee-yong explained, is decorated for both Canadians and Koreans.

Kids help build a clay oven at Watson’s Mill in September.

Watson’s Mill food camp offers children some tasty treats Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news – Manotick’s youngest foodies can head to Watson’s Mill on Friday, Nov. 16 for a special food camp during the fall P.D. Day. Staff at the historic grist mill will host a food-focused camp from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with tasty treats and a lipsmacking lunch for up to 15 kids.

The group will make personal pizzas in the clay oven that was built outside the Carriage Shed in September. Students from Manotick Public School built the oven with their bare hands – and feet – and the help of local sculptor and Osgoode Township Museum president Gary Briggs. It has so far withstood the wet fall weather. “Before we knock it in we thought it would be a good

opportunity to do some food stuff,” said education officer Cam Trueman, who is organizing the camp. The group will also make “hamburger cookies” out of candies, and will roast pumpkin seeds in the clay oven. Kids must register in advance. Cost is $25 per child, or $20 for members. Call 613-692-6455 for more information or to register.

My name is Finley and I am 6 years old. This is my new puppy “Cedar” she is a nippy princess. Cedar likes to chew everything and she really likes to chew the couch pillows. When she’s out for a walk she likes to eat grass, leaves and dirt. Cedar is a good girl though, she never barks. We love her lots.
