News – Fears that a sexual predator is prowling the streets of Ottawa were confirmed on Jan. 9 as Ottawa Police confirmed three recent sexual assaults on women were linked. Seven other attacks contain similarities to the other cases, but have not officially been linked to the same assailant. The linked attacks took place between August, 2012 and October, 2013 – the first near Greenbank Road and Banner Road, the second on a footpath between Lancaster and Erinbrook Crescent, and the third on Aldea Avenue at Lasalle Street. All attacks occurred at night. The seven similar attacks took place across the city between March of 2013 and Jan. 5, 2014, the most recent attack being on Chapman Mills Drive in Barrhaven. These attacks also took place in late evening or early morning hours. Police discussed the investigation during a media conference at Ottawa Police Headquarters. See POLICE, page 3

Hunt Club prepares for a ‘Snow Blast’ of a good time Sabine Gibbins

News – Call it an official winter welcome. The Hunt Club Park Community Association is set to host its annual winter carnival.

Snow Blast is back in Elizabeth Manley Park on Jan. 18 after being on hiatus for several years. President Karin Pullin said the main reason for bringing it back is to reintroduce the association to the community.

Retraction On the front page of the Jan. 9 issue of the Ottawa South News, a photo ran with misleading and false information. Credit should have been given to Shane Norup, a Riverside South resident, instead of to a Metroland reporter. Additionally, infor-

mation about where and when the photo was taken was incorrect, and should have stated the photo was taken in a Toronto neighbourhood on Dec. 26 instead of at Four Seasons Park in Ottawa on Jan. 6. Metroland Media sincerely apologizes for these errors, and for any confusion or inconvenience they may have caused the family and the community.

The organization has a revamped executive this time around, she said, armed with a new focus on several portfolios such as community development files and event planning. The event takes place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. As Pullin explains, they’re excited for the community to see the event make a comeback. “We’re pretty excited to be hosting the carnival again after several years without a winter carnival in the neighbourhood at all,” she said. “Hopefully it’ll also give the newly restarted community association a boost and let the neighbours know we exist again.” This year’s event promises to be full of fun for the whole family including the main event, a hockey game between local fire and police officers at 1 p.m. on the outdoor city rink at the park.

All of the events are free of charge with the exception of the horse and carriage rides and food which will have a nominal charge. The Hunt Club Park Community Association was revitalized in November 2013. A sub-committee of the organization’s 19 elected directors came together to organize the winter carnival. “This winter carnival is an excellent way to bring our community together and to celebrate winter,” said Nancy Ferguson, a long-time resident who was involved in the inception of the event years ago. “I’m happy to see the Snow Blast being revitalized.” For more information, please visit

Two artist renderings, above and below, show a single suspect connected to three sexual assaults.


Ottawa police criminal operations director Sgt. Richard Dugal, left, and police Chief Charles Bordeleau say one man is wanted in connection with three sexual assaults in Ottawa. Seven other assaults contain similarities to the three linked attacks.

Continued from page 1

Police Chief Charles Bordeleau said OPS investigators, working with victims and OPP experts, found evidence to link three cases “to one unknown individual.� “As part of the investigation, an additional seven cases were identified as presenting similarities, but have not been linked to this individual,� said Bordeleau. “As we’ve investigated each of these cases, the Ottawa Police Service has recognized its responsibility to keep the community informed, and we have strived to ensure residents remain aware of the assaults, and the developments in these cases, and reminded them of safety precautions.� Bordeleau made it clear that

the criminal acts were not the fault of the victims, and appealed to the public for help in identifying the suspect. “Someone knows this individual – they may even suspect something already,� said Bordeleau. “Call us. We need (your) assistance to protect potential future victims and identify the individual responsible.� The man wanted in the attacks is described as being possibly of Middle Eastern descent, age 20 to 30, with short dark hair, slim to medium build, and standing 5’9� to 5’11� (175 to 180 centimetres). He was also described as having trimmed facial hair, thick eyebrows and a prominent nose. Witnesses said the individual spoke English and possibly a foreign language, and seemed

to take care of his appearance, with a neat or fashionable wardrobe. In the most recent case, he was described as having a toned, athletic build, with broad shoulders. “In the three linked cases, the victims were between the age of 18 and 30, (and) were all walking alone,� said Sgt. Richard Dugal, OPS criminal operations director. “The three victims were choked during the attack. This individual may show a prominence for this type of behavior in his personal or intimate relationships.� The seven other cases were similar in that they involved sexual assaults on women walking alone at night, but can’t be directly linked to the same individual. Two composite sketches of

the assailant, released to the public following those assaults, were on display at the briefing, and are available on the OPS website. A grim-faced Bordeleau vowed the attacker would be caught. “I have every confidence in members of the police service and investigators that are working on this file that we will apprehend the subject responsible‌but that can’t be done alone,â€? he said, adding that all of the city’s patrol officers and even faculty at universities and colleges have been informed of the suspect’s appearance. Anyone with information regarding the attacks can send the police tips by calling 613221-6161, ext. 4774, or anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.

New workshop proposed for youth facility Sabine Gibbins

News - A new trades building is being proposed to complement a youth centre on Russell Road. An autobody and woodworking training facility is being considered to be located on the grounds of the William E. Hay Centre, which, according to the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa website, is a secure 40-bed residential facility for male youths involved in the justice system. According to a report from NORR Limited Architects and Engineers, the architect on the file, the purpose of the site plan amendment is to add a new trades building to the site in support of the trades program already offered at the centre. The site is located in the industrial park near the northeast corner of Russell and Hawthorne

roads, south of Walkey Road, according to the development application. The applicant seeks to construct a building with a total floor area of 379 square metres and a height of 8.75 metres. They also look to have 15 new parking spaces added on site, for a total of 57 spaces. The building would also have a 3.6 metre security fence separating it from the William E. Hay Centre, and would be shielded from Russell Road with landscaping with existing trees and plants. Some trees would require removal, meaning a new landscaping plan would have to be reconfigured for the site. A public meeting was held on Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. in Training Rooms 1 and 2 of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public works building. Residents can send comments to Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans at Diane.


Soggy city Range Road showed signs of flooding near Strathcona Park during a warm snap on Jan. 11. The weather, which switched from freezing rain to rain in the afternoon forced the National Capital Commission to close the Rideau Canal Skateway and city workers to attempt to open up city drains in areas prone to flooding, like streets in Sandy Hill.

‘She’s a fighter’ Riverside South girl with a developmental disability beats the odds with the help of Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre Sabine Gibbins

professionals from the children’s treatment centre assisted her parents in providing them with resources and services which would prove to be helpful in the long run. In the comforts of her own home, they provided Avery with occupational therapy, recreational therapy, and access to a toy library, as well as a social worker and dietician. The intensive and creative therapy included exercises such as turning her head from side to side, said Michelle, and was required to be done at home because Avery was too medically fragile to be mobile. “At this point, she was receiving the therapy needed to give her basic life skills,” she said. Avery’s story is unique, said Michelle, in that her condition was caught early and now is responding successfully to therapy and treatment.

News – At four years old, Avery Quinlan is pretty much the same as every other energetic child. When she is thirsty, the Riverside South youngster asks for juice. When she sees someone, she says hello. She can count to 10 and knows the colours of the rainbow. She runs down the hallways of her school. But it hasn’t been the easiest of journeys for Avery or for her parents, Michelle and Chris. When she was two months old, Avery was diagnosed with “failure to thrive,”; meaning she wasn’t growing at the normal rate she should grow. In medical terminology, she was hypotonic, meaning she had low-core body strength. Due to this, she spent two months at CHEO being fed through the nose by a tube, with 10 medical departments monitoring her progress as she underwent seven surgeries. Back then, the future was uncertain for Avery, said Michelle. But now, the future seems brighter for Avery thanks to the teachers and staff at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre School. Avery now attends junior kindergarten, and is ready every morning at 7 a.m. to board the bus to school, which is located on the grounds of CHEO. She has a supportive older sister in six-year-old Madison, who spends much time running around the house with her.

It’s like a rebirth ... She is a fighter. She has that spirit in her. We’ve seen her fight to be here. She didn’t give up. MICHELLE QUINLAN


Four-year-old Avery Quinlan is excelling in life thanks to a school program run by the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre. Avery was diagnosed with “failure to thrive,” a developmental disability, but now has a strong vocabulary and is energetic. But it was a completely different picture in the beginning. “She was floppy and had no skin tone,” said Michelle. When a pediatrician came to see Avery shortly before her diagnosis, she knew there was something wrong, and told the family to head to the emergency room for immediate care. “That was Sept. 9 (2009),” said Michelle. “I’ll never forget that day.” She was expected to stay at CHEO

for only four days, but it ended up being 39 days. For the first two years of her life, she would need to be fed with a tube through the abdomen, called a G-tube. She was unable to put any weight on her feet and couldn’t make a sound. Breathing was just as difficult. “She had no strength to breathe properly,” she said. A surgery was done to reconstruct her airway. For those first two years of her life,

When her G-tube was removed, Avery began feeding herself. This was a milestone in her life, said Michelle. The treatment centre sessions continued with a focus on physical therapy. At two-and-a-half, Avery took her first steps, and then spent a year at the centre’s preschool in Kanata while continuing to see therapists. Now, at the age of four, Avery is part of the junior kindergarten program at the Smyth Road site. “She runs into that school,” she said. “She is so excited to be there. She knows everyone now.” Diagnosed as “non-verbal”, Avery uses text therapy (cards with images) to communicate, and through speech therapy lessons can now say 40 to 50 words. This would not have been possible without the support and care of the staff at the children’s treatment centre, said Michelle. “There are so many glorious moments to look back on because of their support,” she said.

The centre also helped them steer through a complicated therapeutic process and introduced them to other parents who were going through similar transitions. Michelle joined the Moms’ Group, where mothers of treatment centre clients get together once a month to touch base and exchange stories, ideas, and tips. A FIGHTER

Staff at the treatment centre has given Avery’s family new meaning of the word hope. “They have such an incredible way of teaching,” she said. “She turned heads as soon as they started therapy on her. We were thinking, ‘Maybe she will learn to just crawl’ when suddenly she starts walking.” She remembers a set of stairs located in the therapy room where two years ago, it was a dream goal for Avery to climb them. Now, the youngster runs up and down them. For Michelle, there aren’t enough words to express her thanks to the staff. “How do you even begin to thank them?” she said. Their daughter’s case is unique in the sense that she was diagnosed very early on, with subsequent therapy following, Michelle added. “They’re all about communitybased care,” she said. The centre will support her until she’s 18 years old. Michelle’s eyes well up at the strides her daughter has made. “I honestly feel like I wouldn’t change a thing,” she said. “The fact that you see the likemindedness in the therapists, in the teachers at the school … nothing really matters.” “It’s like a rebirth (the physical and creative therapies). We saw it within weeks of her starting school. Sometimes we’ll be out and she’ll say something, and we’ll just stop. We know we have a long way to go, but she will still benefit from the OCTC.” “She’s a fighter. She has that spirit in her. Every parent is proud of their child. She chose to make the most out of this. We’ve seen her fight to be here. She didn’t give up.” Michelle said the family will continue to advocate on behalf of the centre.

Consulting worth considering


mong the many issues that will be raised in the municipal election campaign this year, a discussion about public consultation is one that should be considered by both candidates and voters. A consistent sticking point among members of the public during almost every decision made by the city is the way in which consultation is conducted in Ottawa. Many feel the city fails to provide enough opportunity for the voices of residents to be heard, particularly on the bigger issues affecting specific communities across Ottawa. Others will contend the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listen even when there is a chance to have a say. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an issue the city is avoiding. Earlier last year, a series of public sessions were held to ask people how consultation can be conducted better in the hopes of updating a strategy for Ottawa, something that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been done since 2004. Yet complaints persist. An issue might be one where the city decides on a course of action before consulting with residents, as was the case with the green space at 160 Lees Ave. where an LRT construction staging area was proposed. Another would be development proposals where no amount of opposition to a given project appears to alter any

plans whatsoever. Whatever the case may be, people have issues with their ability to participate in the governance of the city. This poses a challenge for candidates, just as it does for the current municipal government. Whether efforts are being made to improve the consultation process or not, at the end of the day, if residents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel as though they can affect decisions made in the city, something is broken. If the public faith in the system is failing, the system itself is failing to a certain extent. Nobody wants to see that happen. The opportunity presented by the current circumstances is that any candidate willing to talk honestly about public consultation will have the attention of a decent number of those who will vote this October. Candidates must be wary however: although there is much work to be done to improve the way the city consults, there are limits. No amount of consultation would make everyone happy in the case of moving Transitway buses to Scott Street, for example. We shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat ourselves over the head to achieve impossible standards. The city should be committing to some form of continuous improvement of public consultation. This commitment needs to come from our leaders and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better place to look for it than an election.


A bank by any other name


ell, it turns out that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not naming the whole of Lansdowne Park after the TD Bank â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just the stadium. Some might call that good news, since the name Lansdowne has historical associations and we should keep as many them as we can. Others might not be so sure, since the name Lansdowne has become associated in the minds of some with years of unpleasant controversy and months of unpleasant construction and traffic. Maybe it would have been smarter to name the whole of Lansdowne Park complex after something else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; another bank, say, or an insurance company. Maybe one of the corporations that used to have its name on the arena where the Senators play would like to get back in the game. Meanwhile, the name Frank Clair, a name with no unpleasant associations whatsoever, is going to disappear and in its place will be the name of a bank. Clair might get a statue. Those with medium-long memories will recall that it was a bit of a struggle to get Clairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name on the stadium in the first place. Although Clair won three Grey Cups as coach and two more as general manager of

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Ottawa Rough Riders during the 1960s and 1970s, it was not until 1993 that the stadium then known as Lansdowne Park was renamed in Clairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honour. Now the stadium will honour a bank. It will be called TD Place. In case youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested, a quick check with Mr. Google reveals that there are at least four other TD Places in the world â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Calgary, Boston and Bangkok. There are no other Frank Clair Stadiums in the world. Money, of course, is behind all this.

sway. This continues a process all over the world in which names with local relevance are replaced, on stadiums, arenas and theatres, with names that have only corporate relevance. TD is banking, pardon the expression, on an outpouring of goodwill from the public. Every time they attend a football game, even every time they drive past, they will think to themselves: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good old TD Bank! How great that they are bringing us football.â&#x20AC;? Of course, in order for that goodwill to be achieved, TD Bank first has to get past the stage where people try to drive past the stadium, are held up by construction, and think to themselves: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Curses on TD Bank! Frank Clair never caused traffic jams like this.â&#x20AC;? Every time a community gives up a local name and replaces it with a corporate name, it becomes less distinct. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as true in sports and entertainment as it is in retail. As a city gives up its names, it becomes less identifiable. You can remember where Maple Leaf Gardens was, but do you have the same feeling about the Air Canada Centre? A baseball fan knows where Wrigley Field is, or Fenway Park, but can he tell you what city PNC Park is in?

That would be where the Pittsburgh Pirates play. They once played at Forbes Field, named after a war hero. PNC is a bank, by the way. All is not lost. These things come and go in cycles. Naming rights are not sold in perpetuity, and as we have seen, corporations sometimes tire of the thrill of having their names on sports venues. So another bank comes along and puts its name up in lights for a while. Maybe it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last. One day, the banks may wake up to the danger of losing their identity because all the arenas and stadiums sound like banks now. The answer is simple: start renaming the banks. For a start, how about the Bank of Frank Clair?

When a young person dies


t was 10 years ago that I first met one of my best friends. We met through work. A few weeks later, her boyfriend died. Just like that, he died. He was 26 years old. He died on his birthday. She’d known him his entire life. I didn’t know him at all. I was in my twenties and I remember the words of people at the funeral, about what this young man had accomplished, about how important he had been to so many people, about the gaping loss his passing would leave in their lives. I selfishly wondered if people would say such nice things about me at my funeral. Every day, we live as if we’ll live forever. And then a young person dies. This happened again recently. It doesn’t matter if you know the person. You go to the funeral. And before you get there, you have drinks with the young person’s friends; friends since high school; friends forever. And they all have their hearts on their sleeves, and you do too. And you share, like people share when a young person dies, when souls are struggling to understand and people are craving connections and loyalty and absolution. You share your doubts about your career ambitions, your prospects. You learn about the “guy emergency” of one, who turned to a new friend when his career fell apart. And you learn about the

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse failed pregnancies of another, who laments not trying earlier; you learn about the one who’s in a long-term relationship with someone who’s definitely “not the one.”

Every day we live as if we’ll live forever ... It doesn’t matter if you know the person. You go to the funeral ... And they all have their hearts on their sleeves, and you do too. BRYNNA LESLIE

And you joke about the canines who’ve become “the children” of others, who dare not state why they’re childless. And everybody cries. They cry because the one that died was happy. They cry because the one that died was giving. They cry because the one that died was young and expecting to live forever -- or at least for the next 20 years. They cry because they miss her and because they wonder

if they can do her memory justice. When a young person dies, there is a profound sense that we are mortal; that this day could be our last At the same time we’re pondering, “are we as giving, as fun, as unique, as grateful for life as the one that died?” Impossible, according to the eulogies. Not by a long shot. We still complain about weather, wonder if we’re making any kind of mark on our careers. We still selfishly question how much our own family and friends would notice our absence if we died. My friend, the one who lost her boyfriend 10 years ago, offered to write my eulogy and send it to me. She was jokingly trying to tell me that, should I die today, of course my funeral would be marked by many. Best friends are good like that – always willing to help you out with a vanity exercise.But I told her, no. I have enough inspiration to live better and be better, to value the moments, be grateful and reassess my priorities. Because a young person has died.

Desroches says he won’t ‘disappear’ Councillor plans to stay involved with community after term ends Jennifer McIntosh

News - When Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches first ran for election in 2006, residents were calling for renewal. “People were tired of seeing the same faces around the council table for long periods at a time,” Desroches said. “So I made a commitment to residents and my family that I would only hold the position for two terms. I was upfront; it was never my intention to become a career politician.” Before being elected to office, Desroches worked for Agri-Food Canada. He said he is considering a return to civil service, or perhaps going into teaching. “I won’t disappear, whatever I do,” he said. “I still firmly believe that good neighbours make good neigh-

bourhoods, so I will be involved in my community in some way.” A proud hockey dad, Desroches said he hopes to get a conversation

started about a public-private partnership to build a new arena in Riverside South. “It’s worked well with the recreation centre in Barrhaven South and

worked well in Orléans. I would like to see a discussion about a P3 in the south end,” he said. It was an uphill battle to learn about championing projects in his ward during his first term, Desroches said of former mayor Larry O’Brien’s time at the helm. “We had a very divided council and an embattled mayor, which often left a vacuum of leadership,” he said. “But in my second term I learned what it was like to work under a functional council that concentrated on improving the city.” Desroches said he is proud of his acheivements as councillor. “When I started Limebank Road was constantly voted one of the worst roads. Now we have seen marked improvements,” Desroches said. Another noted accomplishment is the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge. “Despite the setbacks, we brought this project forward from the ashes,” he said. “I share residents’ frustrations with the delays, but I think we learned from the challenges and I think we are going to see the benefit

“I would tell residents to do their research,” he said. “I will just be another voter trying to decide where to put my X on Oct. 27.” Desroches said the candidates will have their work cut out for them. “Residents are educated,” he said. “Platitudes like ‘zero means zero’ won’t work. You’ll have to have a concrete plan.”

STEVE DESROCHES of this for a long time.” Desroches said his ward has doubled during his time as councillor. When asked if he would endorse any of the four candidates – including his former office staff member Michael Qaqish, Desroches said he wouldn’t make public comment.

Meet the candidates: Michaël Falardeau Land-development co-ordinator wants to step into vacant Gloucester-South Nepean seat Staff

Twenty-eight year-old Michaël Falardeau thinks the south end needs an advocate for better transit and transportation infrastructure, so he’s vying for Gloucester-South Nepean councillor. The seat is being vacated by twoterm Coun. Steve Desroches, and Falardeau said Desroches “built the ward from zero,” but it’s time for new voices. Having grown up in Barrie, Ont., Falardeau, who is bilingual, moved to Ottawa to study architecture at Algonquin College. He stayed here as he developed a career in land surveying and development. He currently co-ordinates project execution for Frecon Construction, which specializes in building institutional, commercial and industrial buildings, including schools and city buildings. He shares a Riverside South home with his wife, Jennifer Loveless.

going to public consultations. I did volunteer once for a political party in Quebec (Coalition Avenir Québec) in the last election … I only lasted a few weeks there because I didn’t agree with the candidates’ positions or the party’s after learning more about it.

Q: Why are you running for city council in Gloucester-South Nepean Ward? A: The city has grown quickly … basically, Gloucester-South Nepean is the fastest-growing community in Ottawa and I don’t feel they’ve been respected in terms of budgetary guidelines or services. I think there has been a great lack of leadership as council and as a whole. Steve Desroches has been very good in terms of counseling … However, we do need a more aggressive voice if we are going to get what we need to service this community.


Q: Detail your past political and civic activism, whether it’s volunteering, campaigning, donations, lobbying or employment at any level of government or political party. A: My political experience is going to be very limited, especially (compared) to those who are running against me. My first political experience would be in high school. The

City of Barrie has a student mayor program … You’re 14 years old and you already understand the municipal processes. Lobbying experience? None. We hired consultants to do the lobbying for us. Mine was strictly on the consultation and execution side – discussing with city planners, discussing with municipal councillors and

Q: How are you going to fundraise for your campaign? A: Getting out and talking to people … Friends and family tend to be the biggest backbone. Corporate (donations): I always welcome them. I know Ottawa has a great stigma against corporate and union donations. I would submit: why not stay away from that stigma and see if we can work closer with the unions, developers and corporations. What will influence my opinion of any project that comes forward is if it’s better for the community. Q: Do you have any potential pecuniary interests or a financial or family conflict of interest? A: I haven’t been under (Brigil’s) employment in quite a few years, but as an act of transparency, especially because the city is lacking some, I

would step away (from any projects they propose). (Regarding Frecon’s business with the city), I feel there has to be a distance between the executive branch of city hall, being council, and the execution side, being the staff. Staff is responsible for executing projects and tendering building projects. Council has no say and no influence on … who bids on them. Q: What do you think the biggest issue was in Gloucester-South Nepean Ward this term and how was it handled? What will be the big issue next term? A: large issue that was handled well was the expansion of Limebank (Road).Transit and schools are still an issue here. Findlay Creek is still to have a school. The schools are over capacity … Riverside South is grossly underserviced for educational purposes. Transit: in 2006, the north-south (light rail) line was cancelled; however, since the city has encouraged growth to go south, they should have maintained that line. Waiting another decade isn’t going to make that project any cheaper. Transit is a simple system: build it and they will come. Other candidates currently registered in Gloucester-South Nepean Ward are: Scott Hodge, Jason Kelly and Michael Qaqish.

News - Michael Qaqish, once executive assistant to outgoing Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches, hopes to replace his former boss. The 28-year-old writes political columns that appear in the Hill Times and on and he hosts Chin Radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily morning show. He has appeared as a political commentator on television and radio. His community involvement includes membership in the Havenlea-Chapman Mills Community Association and work with the Barrhaven legion, including organizing a fundraiser last year. Qaqish was born in Toronto and moved to Ottawa to complete an honours bachelor of arts degree in psychology at Carleton University after living abroad in Jordan. He is single and resides in BarrhavenChapman Mills. Q: Why are you running for city council in Gloucester-South Nepean Ward? A: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked for the Gloucester-South Nepean ward office for four and a half years helping resolve various city issues and I care about the community I live in and I want to make it better â&#x20AC;Ś If (residents) want an effect representative to do that and someone who can get things done at city hall, I think I can do that.

worked with (Capital Coun.) David Chernushenko. I also worked for (Mayor Jim) Watson when he was a provincial minister in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;07 in the election â&#x20AC;Ś From eight to four I did constituency work in the Carling office and after that we would go to the Carlington office for the campaign. I started volunteering on the Hill for (Liberal MP) Derek Lee from ScarboroughRouge River. I also worked for seven weeks for (Liberal MP) Ruby Dhalla as a parliamentary assistant. I was chair of communications for the Canadian-Lebanese Chamber of Commerce, so working closely with business leaders in the community and helping them lobby government and meet with (federal, provincial and municipal) officials on a number of issues.

Q: What do you think the biggest issue was in Gloucester-South Nepean Ward this term and how was it handled? What will be the big issue next term? A: The (Strandherd-Armstrong) bridge was a bit of a disappointment with the contractor going bankrupt, but the work is progressing and it should be done before the term is up. Some of the big issues moving forward are going to be transportation and transit related. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in Findlay Creek or Riverside South, I think a lot of people are hoping to see fast-tracking of the timelines for the extension of the O-Train â&#x20AC;Ś People in Barrhaven want better transit and rail to be there before 2035 or whatever it is in Phase 2. I think a lot of people want to see the widening of Prince of Wales (Drive). Riverside South has been booming in the last little while and at some point they are going to need their own rec centre. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a priority and something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll certainly try to push for.

Fitness Depot: Dedicated to Your Fitness and Health by Brian Turner

As the old year ends and the new approaches, more than a few of us will take a look in the mirror and decide it’s time to shape up. Maybe we’ll join a gym, but many of us will look to purchase home exercise equipment as a more convenient, comfortable, and private alternative to fitness club membership. But where to turn? Which elliptical, treadmill, rower, or exercise bike to buy? It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of websites, media ads, and avalanches of flyers overflowing our mailboxes. It’s also very easy to choose the wrong piece of equipment, that no matter how often you use it or how well designed it is, won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. And of course there’s the risk of injury because you didn’t get the appropriate advice you needed before purchasing a piece of fitness equipment that your body or physical condition isn’t suited for. Fitness Depot has been providing solutions to all these problems and concerns for over 20 years in Ottawa and their long list of satisfied and physically fit clients provide strong testament to their customer-centered way of doing business. First, all of the associates you’ll meet at either Fitness Depot location (499 Industrial Ave in the east or 255 Kanata Ave in the west) are experts on the products and accessories they offer. They have been specifically trained by North America’s major fitness equipment manufacturers and receive continual education and updates on new designs and features. They are all full-time employees and were chosen because of their commitment to physical fitness and excellent customer service. Second, if you want to try any of Fitness Depot’s equipment or products before you buy, it’s as easy as riding a bike because they’re all set up in their comfortable and roomy facilities for demo purposes. There’s no guessing from looking at a picture on the box or at some video as to whether or not you’re choosing the right product. Fitness Depot’s staff also take the time to ask the right questions to make sure that what you buy is right for you and other members of your family who might use it, and for your home. There’s no use getting the perfect home gym system if it won’t fit in your family or exercise room. In fact in most cases the associate you first meet will be the one to guide you through choosing and purchasing the right equipment and accessories to accompanying the delivery truck to your home to ensure a done-right-the-first-time set-up and to make sure you’re completely comfortable with all the features and operations.

And since they’re a depot, they carry everything they offer in stock and can arrange most installations on a same-day basis. Why wait days or weeks when you want to start your new life now? Some us of will enter Fitness Depot for the first time after being gym or club members and will be pleasantly surprised to find the same reputable major brands that our fitness club uses. Fitness Depot’s equipment suppliers are very carefully chosen and only ship to specialty retailers. You don’t have to be a fitness veteran to recognize names like LifeFitness, Precor, or Octane just to name a few. And commercial gyms and clubs also purchase their equipment from Fitness Depot. So the same expert associates that local gyms rely on, are there to serve you as well. And they’re happy to handle special orders for those rare occasions when someone is looking for a hard to find item that isn’t normally stocked. More than a few of us have experienced (or know someone who has) the difficulty that can arise when a fitness machine requires service or repair. With purchases from some retailers, the only choice is to package it up and send it back. But Fitness Depot runs a complete service centre in Ottawa that’s as close as your computer mouse. And since they offer their own in-house extended service plans, affordable peace of mind comes along with professional technicians. Whether it’s a simple adjustment or minor repair, or part replacement, it’s all part of Fitness Depot’s A to Z white-glove customer service. For Ottawa’s truly largest selection of fitness equipment and gear at the guaranteed lowest prices, with service that’s as fit as a fiddle, there really is only one choice with two great locations: Fitness Depot. East end manager Paul Riley and west end’s Kevin DeForge and their very physical teams are on site and on track Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 pm. You can reach them by phone at 613-247-8888 (East) or 613-591-8988 (West). Their website at has full details and specs on everything they sell. Good quality home fitness equipment means a long term relationship that brings much more value than flashy offers on unknown brands. With Fitness Depot, nothing’s holding you back from a fit future.

Fitness Depot is proud to be the Official Fitness Equipment Supplier for the Ottawa Senators™

Hoodies to help the Ottawa homeless

Diane Deans

Michelle Nash

Councillor/Conseillère Quartier Gloucester-Southgate Ward

News - A Vancouver-based company has committed to helping feed ďŹ ve people at the Ottawa Mission for every hooded sweatshirt that is sold from its website. The idea originates from a similar fundraising effort called Hoodies for Hunger. The company, Union Apparel, started in November of last year with a local Vancouver shelter. The company helped provide 460 meals to the homeless in the city. Now, company founder and ex-Ottawan Doug Crowe wants to expand the cause to his former home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to spread help locally,â&#x20AC;? Crowe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you buy a hoodie, you help someone in Ottawa - it is about community.â&#x20AC;? Crowe said the initiative is simple. When someone from the Ottawa area purchases a hoodie from Union Apparel, the company will donate a portion to the Ottawa Mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location,â&#x20AC;? he said. Crowe added people could also indicate where they would like the meals to go, so if someone originally from Ottawa or the Ottawa area wishes to help out, they to can have that opportunity. Shortly after starting up the company last May, Crowe and fellow founders Caleb Hansen and Henry Recinos decided this was their opportunity to build a company based on giving back to the community.

Ottawa Public Library (OPL) 3rd Annual Human Library The OPL will be hosting its 3rd Annual Human Library at 5 branches across the City on Saturday, January 25th between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The event is designed to engage adult customers in conversations that encourage learning and dialogue.

Ottawa Valley Tours



Vancouver-based Union Apparel has committed to donate money to help feed five people at the Ottawa Mission for every Ottawa purchase.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We asked ourselves, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why are we in business?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Crowe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we all wanted to give back so we thought, why not make charitable projects part of the business.â&#x20AC;? In the future Crowe said he would like to see this initiative expand even further to include other cities. Crowe said he credits his charitable drive to his mother, who while he was growing up decided to become a foster mom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has inďŹ&#x201A;uenced me to do this,â&#x20AC;? he said. The idea to take the donations to Ottawa, again, Crowe credits to his mother, who mentioned to him when he was home over the holidays he could expand to the Ottawa Mission. Crowe contacted the mission and the rest, he said, is up to hoodie supporters in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the customers who are making this happen,â&#x20AC;? Crowe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are the ones who are really making the difference - who are buying these hoodies to help.â&#x20AC;?

Library to offer human books Participants include drag queen, mother of eight Brier Dodge

News - On Jan. 25, library goers will be able to sign out more than books. They’ll be able to sign out real people, for 20 minute one-on-one conversations. Orléans will host a mother of eight – soon to be nine – and a drag queen who volunteers

You don’t know who you’re going to meet, what their questions are going to be VÉRONIQUE BERGERON

with GLBTQ groups and hosts a weekly live show. The human library project has run at Ottawa library branches twice before, and will run at five locations this year. Last year, the east end saw the event hosted at the North Gloucester branch, and the Cumberland branch hosted the human library the year before.

It runs through a partnership with CBC in Ottawa. The project was originally started at a Copenhagen festival in 2000. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response,” said Dorothy Jeffreys, the Human Library spokesperson at the Ottawa Public Library. “People just really enjoy the concept and the opportunity to talk to people they wouldn’t talk to normally.” Jeffreys said that all the slots have booked up with all of the books in past years. Last year, all the appopintments for the day with the 16 “books” at the Main branch booked up within the first hour of the event. They’re calling the new participants “new editions”, and this year have added a foster parent, a cartoonist, a Paralympian and a person of Métis background at different locations. BEING A HUMAN BOOK

This is the second year that Avalon resident Véronique Bergeron has participated, though she was featured at the Alta Vista branch last year. Bergeron is a mother of eight, and is pregnant with her ninth child. She got invited to

join the project after being featured on a parenting panel on CBC. “It was fabulous. You don’t know who you’re going to meet, what their questions are going to be,” she said, adding it’s “very unpredictable.” While program organizers stressed that the human books are allowed to decline questions they don’t feel comfortable with, Bergeron said some unexpected questions were fun. “I had one person, a young lady, and our conversation was entirely on sexual ethics, contraception and all that stuff,” she said. “It takes you by surprise at the beginning because it’s very personal. But once you step into it, it’s like, well, if she wants to know.” She said the questions covered a wide range, from potty training and daily life, to questions about her marriage. Bergeron is one of the 37 participating human books in Ottawa. Other participants at different locations include a gambler, anarchist and street outreach worker. The event will also run at the main, Carlingwood, Carp and Greenboro branches.

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean Public Meeting for Subdivision Application for 3100 Leitrim Road The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Planning Department is hosting a public meeting for a development application on Monday, January 20th from 7-9pm in the Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall of the Fred Barrett Arena, 3280 Leitrim Road. The property is located at the northern limit of the Leitrim Community with Leitrim Road to the north, Bank Street to the east, and the Hope Cemetery to the south. The applicant is proposing the development of a fully serviced urban subdivision, which will include a mix of single detached family homes, townhouse homes and a mixed use block which can be developed for a commercial, an institutional and/or service uses or as a high density residential block. There are also lands reserved for a future school for the French Catholic School Board and for a neighbourhood park. The application is consistent with the Leitrim Community Design Plan (CDP). The CDP serves to identify the growth in the area, including lands that are designated for future residential, commercial, and institutional development. I would encourage residents interested in learning more about this development application to attend the public meeting. For more information on this planning file, please visit Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge


Construction of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge is ongoing over the course of the winter months. Residents can expect to see the following work take place:

Montfort Hospital, French board expand programming for unique health class Michelle Nash

News - A new agreement between the Montfort Hospital and the French Catholic school board will see dozens of high school students receiving hands-on experience in health sciences at the east-end facility. The school board operates a specialized learning experience called the FOCUS program for students in grades 11 and 12. Partnering with companies, organizations and professionals over the past seven years, the school board has been offering students the opportunity to receive handson experience in speciďŹ c professions for high school credits. The health care and medical technologies program has used the hospital setting for students to complete a health science co-op. Over the years, program co-ordinator Chantale Rousseau held the in-class portion at the University of Ottawa and CitĂŠ collĂŠgiale. Now the entire program will take place within the halls of the Montfort, something Rousseau and her former students say will

Canada Summer Jobs helps students gain the skills and work experience they need to be successful now and in the future, while earning money for the upcoming school year. MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Both Eric Gauthier and Domenique Labaky completed a unique health program through their school board, the French Catholic School board. Along with ten other classmates the two had the opportunity to learn about health sciences, nutrition, psychology and how the human body develops in a joint program at Montfort Hospital, the board, CitĂŠ collĂŠgiale and the University of Ottawa. be a huge advantage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have everything in one place will be great,â&#x20AC;? said student Domenique Labaky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been

hard commuting between the university and the hospital. Especially for some of the students who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the area. To have

Since 2007, the program has helped over 260 000 students. Canada Summer Jobs 2014 is expected to create approximately 35 000 jobs, while helping employers address skills shortages. Last year, nearly 100 student jobs were created in Nepean-Carleton thanks to the Canada Summer Jobs initiative. One great example of how organizations have beneďŹ tted from the Canada Summer Jobs funding is the Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill in Manotick. The Mill has made great use of the program for seven consecutive years now. Hiring local students allows for the Mill to employ students that are familiar with the historic landmark and improve the visitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unique experience. Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill has been able to successfully attract local students through the Canada Summer Jobs funding, giving this non-proďŹ t organization the opportunity to help its community and local economy grow. Funding will be available to not-for-proďŹ t organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses. Young people aged 15 to 30, who are full-time students and intend to return to school in the fall, can qualify for these job opportunities. With over 1 million net new jobs since the end of the global recession - the best growth record among all G-7 countries -and overall tax burden at its lowest level in nearly 50 years, our Government continues to make the economy its number one priority.

Montfort reaching out to high school students Continued from page 23

The two partners announced students would now be able to spend their entire co-op placement and class time at the hospital. Members of the school board and the hospital signed the new agreement at the hospital on Jan. 8. Hospital president Dr. Bernard Leduc said the partnership with the school board is a perfect fit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This agreement establishes a continuum of French-language education in Ontario,â&#x20AC;? Leduc said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a university teaching hospital, Montfort must encourage the training of future

health-care professionals and support education.â&#x20AC;? Bernard Roy, director of education for the board, said the program not only addresses the need for students to receive practical experience, it also helps promote both the francophone and bilingual workforce in the health profession. Labaky said she was nervous about attending the program, which took her away from familiarity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was scary at first because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anyone, but once you start it becomes really easy and now we are all like family,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Labaky and the other 11 students came from across the city to attend the specialized program. OrlĂŠans classmate Eric Gauthier said he wanted to get hands-on experience in the health profession to see if it was what he wanted to pursue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get to learn all about biology and health in its setting,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see science in a whole different way.â&#x20AC;? Gauthier said the course has solidified his desire to become a health-care professional, specifically one who works in the thick of it all -- the emergency room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is just so much going on, and you

need to know so much, to become an emergentologist would be my dream,â&#x20AC;? Gauthier said. Labaky said she is still uncertain about what she would like to be, but she does know that she wants to be working in health care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a great stepping stone. You see first hand what it takes,â&#x20AC;? Labaky said. The school board offers 14 FOCUS programs for grade 11 and 12 students and offers everything from law and security, education, music, television production, hospitality and construction. More information about the program is available on the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at

Securing Your Retirement


Connected to your community

I understand the importance of having the right programs in place so that Canadians can prepare for their retirement. My colleagues and I know that Canadians have worked hard to earn their pensions and they deserve to know that when it comes time for retirement, those funds will be there for them. That is why we are working to ensure that this happens. In October of this year, Premier Kathleen Wynne called on the federal government to enhance the Canada Pension Plan to ensure that Canadians can continue to count on this fund. We know that most Canadians do not have the luxury of depending on private pension plans or personal savings. We want to ensure that Canadians who have worked hard can expect to live out their retirement in dignity. We also want to ensure that when it comes time for retirement, our province and our retirees are prepared. Premier Wynne took the lead on this initiative during a recent meeting with her provincial colleagues and is now working with her counterparts to ensure that the conversation about preparing Canadians for retirement continues. Retirement income security for Ontarians is one of our fundamental priorities. We must ensure that Ontario has a reliable and responsible retirement income system, one that can evolve and respond to practical realities. Your Premier and Finance Minister, Charles Sousa will continue to apply pressure to the federal government to strengthen the Canada Pension Plan, and will also look at alternative measures to ensure that Canadians have peace of mind as they approach retirement.

We are here to help Please contact me at my community office with any matter that is important to you. My staff and I will always do our best to help you.

Zeely the alien has come to earth to learn about friendship. The app is designed for children aged three to eight.

Zeely Adventures to launch on Apple App Store Jennifer McIntosh

News - A Kanata mom is using her engineering expertise to help improve education for children with autism spectrum disorder, Asperger’s syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Natasha D’Souza, who recently received a master’s in technology innovation management, said it was her experience as a mother of a son with special needs that prompted her to work out a system to help him learn social skills. “The medical system is very drug-based,” D’Souza said. “And that wasn’t for us.” There are holes in the education system as well, D’Souza said, adding social skills simply aren’t taught anymore, due to dwindling resources and limited staff. “The metrics are out of whack,” she said. For example, the worker assigned to help her son master skills to keep in pace with

his classmates, spends time teaching him how to use scissors. “Is that the best use of her time?” D’Souza asked. So, a little more than a year ago, she decided to use her expertise as an engineer and the unique opportunity her hands-on program at Carleton University offered to develop a product that would guide children and help them to learn social skills – something often lacking in kids with autism and Asperger’s because they don’t know how to interpret facial expressions. “I get a lot of notes home because he would smirk at the teacher when she was angry, but it’s because he didn’t understand the expression,” D’Souza said. It’s that type of roadblock that inspired the creation of an app called Zeely’s Adventures. Zeely is an alien who recently landed on earth and is looking to understand friendship. He is guided by his sidekick Obo. The group of programmers

and engineers who helped D’Souza all had children with special needs, she said. “They knew the value of balancing the learning part with making the game fun,” she said. The game, which D’Souza hopes to launch on the Apple App Store before the end of January, was partially funded by the Ontario Brain Institute. Aside from offering an alternative to pill-based treatment of disorders, she hopes to change the conversation around support for special needs children. “As a parent, you hope to give your child the best future possible, so you often have no more hobbies, because you are shuffling kids two hours each way for a day camp to learn about social skills,” D’Souza said. “But whatever you do has to be consistent to work. Whatever the parent is doing has to be replicated at school.” For more information about the app, visit the site

Emerson’s lack of patience spoils the popcorn


he corn popper hung on a nail behind the Findlay Oval, a big wire basket affair, blackened from use with a long steel handle. Father said his grandfather made it, but Mother was reasonably sure she saw one just like in Scott’s hardware. It didn’t matter to us how it got to the farm in Northcote, it only mattered that we had it. Nothing pleased me more on a cold winter’s night, always a Saturday, when Mother would tell Audrey to take down the popper and make up a batch of popcorn. Of course, that didn’t happen if it conflicted with the same night as the Saturday night house party. Although we grew corn, it wasn’t from our crop that we got the kernels. At Briscoe’s General Store, there was a big bag, back near the bar-

MARY COOK Memories rel of molasses and the coaloil, which held bulk corn you could purchase by the pound. A tin scoop sat on top of the kernels with paper bags piled on the counter, and for 10 cents you got enough corn to last half the winter. My sister Audrey was the one to pop the corn. That is until the night my brother Emerson said he thought it was high time he was allowed to do the job. Au-

drey didn’t mind giving it up, but I had serious doubts Emerson, who said he knew a faster way to pop the corn, was up to the job. It had been a long day, and Mother was in no mood to argue, so she told Emerson to get down the wire basket and take the bag of corn out of the cupboard. He dumped the amount needed into the wire basket, hooked it closed and moved

over to the Findlay Oval. You had to have a strong arm to not only shake the basket continually over the hot stove lid, but to endure long minutes before the corn started to pop. Emerson seemed to think the faster you scraped the basket over the lid, the sooner the corn would start to pop. Audrey had already put a soup bowl of butter on the back of the stove to melt. Popcorn was not good without a big splash of melted butter. Well, we could see Emerson was getting impatient. Audrey told him shaking the basket faster had nothing to do with getting the kernels to pop, it had everything to do with the heat of the stove. That gave Emerson an idea. If the lid wasn’t hot enough, then surely putting the basket right over the hot coals would do the trick.

He slid the lid off, and put the basket directly in the hole it left, a nearly right on top of the burning wood. Soon the corn was popping at a great rate, and Emerson was shaking the basket like his life depended on it. Mother was watching from the end of the kitchen table, shaking her head. She was a firm believer in letting us learn from our mistakes, and there was no doubt in her mind Emerson was in for a great lesson. The popper was full to bursting, and Emerson raced over to the table to dump it into the big baking bowl. It was soon obvious that the only popcorn we could eat was sitting in the bottom of the bowl, because the bottom half of the basket was burnt to a crisp. “Didn’t feel like popcorn anyway,” he said, surveying

the blackened kernels staring him in the face. Father had wakened from the smell of the burning corn, shook his head, and promptly fell back to sleep. Mother told Emerson to scoop off the burnt kernels and take them out to the chicken coop. Nothing was wasted back in the 1930s, even burned popcorn. We divided what was edible, which wasn’t much. The next morning when I went out to gather eggs in the hen house, the burnt kernels were just where Emerson had flung them. Even the hens couldn’t eat them.

Celebrate Family Literacy Day Jessica Cunha


Join the creature crew at Rock the Arts as they head on a field trip to the zoo. The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre and Rock the Arts are teaming up for an interactive puppet show and workshop for all ages on Jan. 20 to celebrate Family Literacy Day.

Community - To celebrate Family Literacy Day, the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre and Rock the Arts are teaming up for an interactive puppet show and workshop to delight people of all ages on Jan. 20. During Rock the Arts’ wildly popular Animal Adventure show, the creature crew from the Kanata-

based puppet company head on a field trip to the zoo, teaching the audience about how to protect the environment for animals and people alike. After the performance, attendees will have the opportunity to make their own sock puppets to take home. “We’re trying to use the workshop to teach them how to use the puppets, then giving them the opportunity to make a puppet,” said Sarah Argue,

founder of Rock the Arts. “This craft will allow them to take home puppetry and keep the passion going.” Argue added that children will have the opportunity to meet the creature crew after the performance and learn how the puppeteers use their hands and voices to bring the puppets to life. The free event will take place on Monday, Jan. 20, from 7 to 7:30 p.m., at the Kanata Recreation Complex, located at 100 Walter Baker Pl. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own socks for a puppet making workshop after the performance. “Each year we try to do a family event. This year we choose to do the puppet show,” said Colleen Taylor,

children’s community developer at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. “They’re going to talk about how we can support the environment.” Family Literacy Day aims to promote an appreciation of lifelong learning and that learning can be fun, said Taylor. “Learning doesn’t just happen sitting in school behind a desk,” she said. “Just about anything you do with children is a learning opportunity for them … (and) if parents bring a sock, they can walk home with a puppet as well.” Space is limited and advance registration is required by calling 613591-3686 ext. 5.

Makerspace coming to Centrepointe library this spring Branch to offer workshops and access to equipment like 3-D printers, laser cutters Laura Mueller

News - Readers and learners already call the Ottawa Public Library home. This spring, the library is hoping to attract a new breed of patron to its Centrepointe branch: makers. In what’s now an nearly empty storage room tucked next to the teen zone, the library is building a modern fabrication centre as a space for people to learn – and put into action – skills that until recently were restricted to large manufacturers. The makerspace will be the first of its kind in Ottawa and follows a trend of libraries evolving to include hands-on learning centres and hightech equipment. The space won’t be open until late this spring, but it will boast a 3-D printer, video-editing equipment and a laser cutter, among other tools. At times, the makerspace would host workshops or training sessions, while at other times it would be open with supervision for people who want to tinker, said Ot-

eryday gadgets used in the home. “There is something that appeals to people at a really profound level and that’s to make something with your own hands,” said Luc Lalande, a local maker who has become involved with advising the public library as it develops its makerspace. “It’s taking back control of making things – not just buying things and consuming things,” he said. “It’s quite innovative for the library to do something like this,” Lalande said. “Institutions can be pretty resistant to change.” Lalande says he wants to help out because he has a soft spot for reengaging the community with the physical library. “People are disengaged from the library,” he said. “Libraries are large and they’re community hubs,” he said. “It’s a place where people come to learn and not to be restricted.” Another local maker, Jeff Ross, agreed. “When you’re talking about LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND the library … it’s open and accesOttawa Public Library chief executive office Danielle McDonald poses in the room at the Centrepointe sible to the community, it’s a place branch that will soon be transformed into Ottawa’s first true ‘makerspace:’ a centre for hands-on learning where you learn new things and it’s and fabrication. a place to share knowledge and pass it along,” he said. “There is a natural tawa Public Library chief executive should have a greater role in teach- who use new tools like three-di- affinity (to the maker movement), I officer Danielle McDonald. ing and collaboration.” mensional printers and laser cutters think.” “It’s really about learning a difIn the last decade or so, a com- to produce anything from small art See LIBRARY, page 32 ferent way,” she said. “The library munity of “makers” has sprung up sculptures to missing parts to fix ev-

Library program a one year pilot project Continued from page 31

Ross has attended workshops on setting up makerspaces and has been involved with advising the library on its project. The movement has been growing in Ottawa, Ross said. A Mini-Maker Faire started up in 2010 with a couple hundred enthusiasts in attendance. By 2013, the event had partnered with the Canadian Science and Technology Museum and attracted 4,000 people. Lalande is hoping the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s makerspace leads to a proliferation of similar facilities in Ottawa. There is already a similar concept at Art Engine, which operates workshops at Arts Court. Ross also holds big dreams of starting up a community-based makerspace in Ottawa. He sees the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement as a positive step because he thinks governments will need to be more involved in setting up or funding makerspaces if they are going to be sustainable learning centres. BUILDING THE SPACE

The makerspace is a one-year pilot project is a partnership with the United States Embassy and its American Corners program, which usually involves setting up a section

of American material in foreign libraries. Since Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s libraries already have American content, McDonald proposed the makerspace idea, and the embassy bought in. The embassy will provide $58,000 to purchase equipment, tools, and computers and it will pay for room preparation and programming. The library will provide the space and funding for staff to manage and oversee the activities and programs. As a result of the partnership, the makerspace will be called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine Space â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An American Corner.â&#x20AC;? The makerspace initiative is an extension of the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign to understand how users want its services to evolve and what its role should be in the future. Last year, people told the library that they want to learn by doing things during the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagineâ&#x20AC;? public outreach campaign, McDonald said. The library is continuing the discussion with community stakeholders about what the makerspace will look like and how it will function. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How it is going to look is all brand new,â&#x20AC;? McDonald said. Programming in the space will focus on fabrication or prototyping; digital content creation; video, music, photo editing as well as gaming and app creation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Programming will be very com-

munity and customer driven, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to create a stage upon which local inventors, tinkerers and entrepreneurs can showcase their talents,â&#x20AC;? said Virginia Madon, a spokesperson for the library. Staff at the library have been interested in makerspaces and have checked out a couple in the United States, including one in Chicago. But McDonald herself is still learning about the concept, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At its basic level, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an environment where you can come together and learn things,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learning through doing.â&#x20AC;? McDonald said that while all library programs are free, there might be a cost associated with using the makerspace due to the cost of materials. TECH GOODIES

The museum will says it can be a great place to warm up between outdoor activities, as the organization will offer hot drinks and extended hours on weekends during the festival. Another way to stay warm will be on Sparks Street. Sparks Street BIA executive director Les Gagne said businesses are excited to participate in the festival for the second year in a row, and will offer two distinctive reasons to walk down the historic street.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working on the launch of two new traditions,â&#x20AC;? Gagne said. The BIA will kick off Spirits on Sparks - a pub crawl, where patrons can go to a number of participating pubs and restaurants on Sparks to have a taste of warm and cold featured beverages. Spirits on Sparks will take place on Feb. 14-16, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The second event, Gagne said, is a play on the famous Newfoundland ceremony known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;screech-inâ&#x20AC;? where locals welcome nonNewfoundlanders the opportunity to officially become a Newfoundlander. The ceremony involves a shot of Newfoundland rum known as screech, a short recitation and the kissing of a cod. The new Ottawa Sparks Street tradition is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;get nippedâ&#x20AC;? and will offer patrons the opportunity to be officially â&#x20AC;&#x153;nippedâ&#x20AC;? with a shot of Canadian whiskey, reciting a proclamation and sealing the deal by kissing one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite animals - a beaver. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launching at the start of Winterlude, Gagne said getting â&#x20AC;&#x153;nippedâ&#x20AC;? will become a year-long event, with different seasons using different types of whiskey to commemorate different historical times on Sparks Street.

News - Ice sculptures, stew cook-offs and the opportunity to kiss a beaver -- is there a better way to celebrate Winterlude downtown? As the main sites for Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Winterlude Festival get ready for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events, nearby communities have also signed on to offer a little winter festivities as well. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to warm up, fill up or take on a challenge, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown business improvement areas each promise a good time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful way to celebrate winter,â&#x20AC;? said Katherine Solomon, spokeswoman for the ByWard Market Business Improvement Area. The market will host its 23rd annual charity fundraiser Winterlude Stew Cook-off on Feb. 7. The event invites the public to head down to the market with $10 in hand to eat all the stew they possible can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really fun lunch-time event where we raise hundreds of dollars for a local charity,â&#x20AC;?

Solomon said. Close to two dozen businesses participate in the event, offering varying different types of stew. Last year, Solomon said, the event raised $6,000 for two local charities - Have a Heart, Give Smart program and the Lowertown Community Resource Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer camp programs for children. People are encouraged to vote for their favourite stew, with a new twist this year - the opportunity to vote all weekend long. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nearby the market, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bytown Museum will host â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snow Much Fun at the Bytown Museumâ&#x20AC;?, which will include the permanent exhibit, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where Ottawa Beganâ&#x20AC;? as well as a youth-led tour of the museum.

New wellness centre aims to help youth without wait times $325,000 fundraising goal to provide two treatment beds for 24 youths over one-year period Jessica Cunha

News - A new centre in south Kanata will offer crisis and psychiatric services, counselling and assessments for youth with mental health issues – without the barriers of wait-lists and need for government funding. Stittsville resident Terri Storey, founder and president of Terrace Youth Residential Services Inc., was set to open the doors of the Terrace Youth Wellness Centre, located at 120 Terence Matthews Dr., on Jan. 15. The goal of the new centre is to provide the right services at the right time for youth and their families, she said. “We have a lot of youth that are struggling with huge mental health issues,” she said. “Parents in our community, they don’t know where to go.” Appointment wait times at facilities like the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario

can be up to 18 months long, and trying to navigate the system can often be frustrating and confusing especially for a family in crisis, said Storey. The wellness centre can provide assessments, referrals and a roadmap for parents and youths struggling with suicidal thoughts, severe depression and other mental health issues, in a more timely fashion because it’s privately owned and operated. “We have no wait times,” Storey said. The Terrace Youth Wellness Centre will address the critical needs of families who are unable to find or unable to wait for public services, she said. A clinical team of professionals will work with youth and families to determine the best course of treatment, as well as support for parents and caregivers to navigate the mental health system. “We’re telling all the kids to talk but there are no services (without wait-lists),” said


Stittsville resident Terri Storey, left, founder and president of Terrace Youth Residential Services Inc., prepares to open the doors of the Terrace Youth Wellness Centre on Jan. 15, with Amelia Kiteley, clinical coordinator at the new centre. Storey. “We are looking to be innovative and creative like never before. We are promoting a conversation about mental health, to raise awareness and at the same time raise funds to provide services to youth who wouldn’t otherwise meet the criteria for services.” Terrace Youth Residential Services also offers educational programs, as well as five resi-

Canterbury Taekwondo & Hapkido Academy

dential homes across Ottawa and the Valley for highly suicidal youths and those with mental

health issues. The program also has a respite service for family and caregivers. “It is a paid treatment – which I hate – but there is no funding out there,” said Storey. “Every system is trying to do its best.” Her goal is to raise $325,000 to provide treatment beds to 24 youth over the course of a year. One bed costs more than $300 a day in the residential program, more than most parents can afford, she said. Her beds are usually filled by requests from the Children’s Aid Society. Storey is hosting #PassionateMinds, a fundraising and networking event on Feb. 11 at Next restaurant in Stittsville. She said she’s hoping the evening will bring together entrepreneurs, industry leaders, visionaries and individuals “to connect with each other about what matters.” “Let’s do something big for the youth in our community,

because making a difference is well within reach,” Storey said. “We get to provide services with every dollar we make.” She said there are no grants out there to help youth get the treatments they need but she’s in talks with an insurance company to allow people to make claims for mental health services. Storey, who has a master’s degree in psychology, launched Terrace Youth Residential Services 18 years ago at the age of 24. After working as a counsellor in the public school board, she saw the need for more resources for youths with mental health issues. Her company now operates across the province and serves more than 150 youth every year. For more information visit To speak with someone about a referral, call 613-831-1105 or email
