Gloucester Fair to run 10 days, add headline entertainers Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The Gloucester Fair is growing. The regional fair will move from four days in the last week of May, to 10 days at the end of August. The new, extended version will kick off on Aug. 15 and run until Aug. 24. Harley Bloom, who is on the fair’s board of directors, said the longer run and new dates aren’t the only big additions. “We are very excited with the possibilities,” he said.

Festivities will kick off with a monster truck show and a demolition derby. Bloom said there will also be one headliner and other local entertainers on stage throughout the fair. The change in timing and length will mean more planning, but the basic infrastructure has been in place for years, said the fair board’s president, Maurice Lafortune. See AUGUST, page 2

Bank Street gets ready for new look Busy street expected to make life safer for south Ottawa residents Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News - The city is looking to turn the southern end of Bank Street into a safer and more community oriented road. Residents will have the opportunity to participate in creating a community design plan for Bank Street from the CN railway corridor south to Queensdale Avenue at a public meeting on Feb. 20. Planner Jillian Savage said the community design plan is a good follow-up to a previous one done for Bank Street north of

Billing’s Bridge to the CN railway tracks. The goal of the plan is to transform this portion of Bank Street in the GloucesterSouthgate Ward from a street heavily used by automobiles into a more pedestrian and cycling-friendly roadway. “It’s one of the first ones we did for an arterial main street, so we are basically completing the process for the street,” she said. The community design plan will set a vision for a more improved and safer corridor, said Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans. “Right now, residents feel as if the street is a barrier to them,” said Deans. “This community design plan is an opportunity to work toward creating a more community-oriented, safe and sustainable neighbourhood. We need to consider the different uses along Bank Street that when combined come together to make Glouces-

ter-Southgate a great place to live, work, and raise a family.” CHALLENGES

The study area is nearly 3.5 kilometres in length, and includes any properties that touch Bank Street as well as properties located between Bank and Sawmill Creek. A few key areas of the plan include the South Keys Shopping Centre, Sawmill Creek, the South Keys and Greenboro transit stations, the large intersection at Bank and Hunt Club Road, an area east of Bank at Hunt Club which currently has industrial zoning, and the Jewish Memorial Gardens cemetery. This project is unique as it is taking a portion of Bank and finding out what some of its characteristics could be, said Savage. See PUBLIC, page 6 R0012549738-0220

Originally started as an offshoot of the city of Gloucester’s parks and recreation department, the fair started in the parking lot of the Earl Armstrong Arena on Ogilvie Road, nearly three decades ago. The fair board is a working one and Lafortune said members can be found throughout the fairgrounds driving fence spikes into the ground or pitching in wherever else they’re needed. It was moved to the Rideau Carleton Raceway in 1997 largely because it had outgrown its home. “The Rideau Carleton Raceway have been great partners to us,” Bloom said. Bloom said the board began to consider taking over the late-August dates a few years ago when the Super Ex was suspended in 2011. “We are not looking to take over for the Ex,” Bloom said. Bloom said the Gloucester fair will still maintain it’s smaller, regional fair feel, despite the extended timelines and addition of more rides and attractions. This year, the fair will have the largest midway in the city, featuring the Zipper, Scrambler and Fireball, among others. There will also be a kid’s zone with a petting zoo, pony rides, the bird of prey show and DooDoo the Clown. Bloom and Lafortune said what makes the fair special is the fact that it has hosted more than 1,000 physically and mentally handicapped children during its existence. “We offer them a day at the park for free,” Bloom said. The change in timeline from May to August may mean organizers will have to reach out to families or agencies in the communities so the kids can have a chance to take advantage

of their day. Traditionally, the one-day event during the fair has been sponsored by Hydro Ottawa. The utility company provides funding and volunteers to help out. Another big event is the annual Smoked to the Bone barbecue competition, sponsored by D& S Southern Comfort BBQ. There are amateur and professional categories. Bloom said there are $20,000 worth of prizes. “Having (the competition) in Au-

gust will make it the season finale for the Canadian Southern BBQ Association,” Bloom said. Even though there are a lot of events planned, Bloom said organizers will be looking for input from the public in the coming months to see what Ottawans would like to have. “We are thinking about a pet day and maybe an ultimate frisbee or soccer tournament,” Bloom said, adding organizers may look to the public for a newer, more regional name for the fair as well. While there are no bus routes to the Rideau Carleton Raceway, Bloom said he is looking into whether the city can extend bus service for the duration of the fair, or if the board can organize some kind of shuttle service. “We want to make this a real family-friendly event,” he said. “We are very excited.”

Part of the reconstruction included a new outdoor rink which was built in partnership with the Sens Foundation, a National Hockey League-sized surface, which opened in 2013. The total cost for the renovations is $3.9 million. Full programming for the park is still to be determined. The city intends on having it ready to open by this summer.

News - Aside from celebrating the season, Lowertown’s annual winter carnival is set to officially open the new field house at Jules Morin Park. The field house, which was damaged in an earthquake in 2010, is now a new community building with a multi-purpose space, a skating change room, washrooms and park support spaces. City officials, including RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury plan to be on hand for the official opening. Construction for the park began last May, with the park renovations including a new playground area for toddlers, children and teens, a new mini soccer field with goalposts, new entrance features, a paved

single level with the new field house and sports field. The much-loved wading pool will remain, with a retaining wall to allow for seating. The park’s wading pool is the most used in the city. Established in 1852, Jules Morin Park, once known as Anglesea Square, became the first piece of land in the city to be set aside for public use. The park was two-tiered with two baseball diamonds and a field house on one level and a playground structure and wading pool on the other. The city announced plans to revi-

Organization wants more public washrooms michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - What happens when you are out shopping or playing in the park and you have to go? One local organization is looking to make public washrooms more accessible and available for anyone who has to go. The Gotta go! campaign started a couple of months ago with one thing in mind -- creating a network of safe, accessible, free, clean and environmentally responsible public toilets and water fountains at parks, major transit stops and key public spaces to meet the needs of residents and tourists in Ottawa. Campaign organizer Marianne Eriksson informed Lowertown residents at a Feb. 10 meeting about the campaign at its monthly meeting on Feb. 10. According to Eriksson, one of the ďŹ rst things the organization is doing is gathering information, ideas and comments from residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to know where you think would be a good

place, concerns or ideas,â&#x20AC;? Eriksson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes we are simply talking about putting in one public toilet in a location that could have a beneďŹ cial impact.â&#x20AC;? According to the campaign, the Crohns and Colitis Foun-

We are looking at what other capital cities are doing ... MARIANNE ERIKSSON

dation surveyed their members in 2008 and found that more than 85 per cent of them have been caught needing a toilet in a hurry and although the city does have public restrooms in large parks or community spaces, use is limited to the hours it is open to the public and some are seasonal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been complaints that people use laneways in the market,â&#x20AC;? Eriksson said. She said the group is also compiling a list of current public washrooms to best

identify the ideal spots for public washrooms. Concerns about cleanliness, she added, could be addressed by having self-cleaning washrooms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking at what other capital cities are doing, as well as looking at design capabilities for the washrooms,â&#x20AC;? she said. Not an inexpensive endeavor, the organization plans to help off-set any start-up costs by making advertising space available for businesses. Lowertown Community Association board member Elizabeth Bernstein told Eriksson that a recent walkability audit the association conducted in the summer collected some information about public washroom needs and offered to share the information with the campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Going forward) we can share with you and help build the research rather than work separately,â&#x20AC;? Bernstein said. To ďŹ nd out more information, send comments or ideas, contact the Gotta go! campaign at gottagocampaign@ gmail.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot assume that Bank Street has just one characterization throughout its whole area,â&#x20AC;? she said. One of the challenges will be to find way of balancing the means of transportation on the major route, while ensuring it remains pedestrian-friendly. With environmental assessments underway for the Greenboro and South Keys transit stations in preparation for the possible extension of the O-Train line, it is important now more than ever to start the plan, said Savage. Savage said the areas around the two transit stations will experience development pressure first. The plan will ultimately see the physical landscape of both public and private properties change as time goes on, said Savage. The community of Gloucester-Southgate is already on board with the project, Deans said, as stakeholders from different areas of the public have helped comprise three different groups â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a business advisory, a public advisory, and a technical advisory group. From the residents sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard from, Deans said one of the areas they feel most strongly about changing or improving is the safety and overall façade of the South Keys Shopping Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Long-term, the redevelopment of the mall is going to be a big player for the strategy,â&#x20AC;? said Deans. Savage noted some examples of the redevelopment could include making it more of a walkable and pedestrian-friendly entity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of improvements that can be made to make it more pedestrian-friendly,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, people have to drive from one end to another. We want to make it into destination.â&#x20AC;? Both Deans and Savage are impressed with the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s participation in the community design plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially when it comes to the South Keys Shopping Centre, people really do seem invested in it,â&#x20AC;? said Savage. The other unique part of the plan is Sawmill Creek, she added. Residents would like to see the wetland become more of a natural habitat in the future and have a pathway system weave throughout the creek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have the opportunity where they can enjoy it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Resident Jennifer Talbot said she is anxious to see what types of ideas arise from residents regarding improving the street.

Southern Bank Street â&#x20AC;&#x201C; within the red line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is the focus of a community design plan which should improve safety. Safety is a huge concern for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cycle in the summer most of the time to work, and use OC Transpo in the fall and winter, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot that could be done to make the street itself more pedestrian friendly,â&#x20AC;? she said. Likewise, the South Keys Shopping Centre needs to be revamped with added safety measures, Talbot added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of traffic and usage in that mall, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the best in terms of safety and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really a place where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want to be at night either,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are things they can do to improve

the outside of it and make it more of a place where people can walk easily.â&#x20AC;? The Bank Street community design plan meeting is set to take place at the Greenboro Community Centre starting at 6 p.m. A staff presentation will take place at 7 p.m. before a question and answer period. This is the first in a series of meeting scheduled to take place during the community design plan process.

Sports club helps replace aging school trampoline Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - The Crystal Bay Centre for Special Education is replacing its aging trampoline thanks to a donation from the Kanata Sports Club. The apparatus sits in the corner of the gym and is used on a daily basis. The trampoline, which features a safety ring and bars to hold on to, helps build leg strength, co-ordination and offers a sensory experience for all of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 96 students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re enjoying themselves and building skills at the same time,â&#x20AC;? said principal Karen McMorine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For many of them itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their favourite part of their day.â&#x20AC;? After more than a decade, the time has come to replace the piece of equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 to 12 years old,â&#x20AC;? said McMorine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a new one.â&#x20AC;? When Lorne Weatherall, president of the Kanata Sports Club and bus driver for the school, heard that McMorine was planning to replace the

old trampoline, he and the sports club jumped into action. The group raised the $700 needed to replace the aging apparatus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how we were going to replace the trampoline before Lorne came and approached us,â&#x20AC;? said McMorine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than a driver, he takes a special interest in the kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lorne makes a connection with them.â&#x20AC;? All the students, who range in age from four to 21, have a gym period at least three times a week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every student here in the school can access it. They all use it,â&#x20AC;? said McMorine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely important in terms of continuing the program we have.â&#x20AC;? Thanks to the donation from the sports club, the school will be able to replace the trampoline by this spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a special donation for special people,â&#x20AC;? said Weatherall, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a driver for the school for the past 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just like the place, I like the people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun.â&#x20AC;?

City, board earn failing grades

L

ast week the city turned down a request from the Ottawa public school board to build a desperately needed school in Kanata. The board recently secured provincial funding for construction of the school, a process that could best be described as wringing water from a stone, judging by the long list of similar requests in other areas of the city, such as OrlĂŠans, Findlay Creek and Stittsville, communities that are still waiting for a goahead from the province. The money must be used in a limited time frame â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in essence a use-it-or-lose-it situation. The city has given the project a big thumbs down, arguing that a school doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong in an industrial area near companies like Nordion Inc., which creates medical isotopes using radioactive materials. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no actual safety concern, but the city is concerned about a backlash from the public based on irrational and groundless public perception. Nordion says it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the school as a next door neighbour in case it chooses to expand its business. But is this really a concern the city should seriously entertain? As for the issue of allowing a school in an â&#x20AC;&#x153;in-

dustrialâ&#x20AC;? area, there is precedent, says the board, referring to two schools in Ottawa as well as a French public school in Kingston. The board has already launched an appeal, as the city failed to meet the 120-day deadline to make a decision on zoning applications before the Ontario Municipal Board is allowed to take a hand. The boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s application was filed more than 200 days ago, but the city was forced to delay a decision as it had neglected to inform neighbouring businesses, such as Nordion, about the zoning request. According to Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, the lines of communication between the public school board and the city are poor at best. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson has been working to fast-track the school at a pre-determined alternate location that is almost fully serviced (i.e. not yet fully serviced), saying it should fit the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time frame. The whole situation seems to be a comedy of errors. Whoever is to blame, the board and the city need to improve communication. Both will spend tens of thousands of dollars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taxpayer dollars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on fighting this out at the Ontario Municipal Board, a conflict that could have been defused with the help of a little goodwill and co-ordination.

What will be the coffee shop of tomorrow?

T

he big fuss over the 50th anniversary of the Beatles arriving in North America shows you that the Baby Boomers are still very much in control of the news media. Nobody else much cares. The Beatles story way overshadowed another recent anniversary â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 30th birthday of the Macintosh computer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is of far more interest to a younger generation. By the time the Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th comes, the Boomers will be but a memory and the Mac can get all the attention it deserves, providing it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been replaced by something else, such as a little dot you can paste on your cheek that telephones people, plays movies and does spreadsheets. One of the things that is so striking about all this is how fast current affairs become ancient history. Most of the people who screamed when John, Paul, George and Ringo appeared on the Ed Sullivan show are now getting pensions. They will tell you it happened overnight. Most of the places the Beatles played are now parking lots, or, more likely, parking lots surrounding condos. We like to think that things last, but a lot of things donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

Now there is a coffee shop on each of those four corners. And you know what? Someday soon coffee shops will become a memory too. People will say: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember 50 years ago when there were coffee shops?â&#x20AC;? That will be too bad, because the spread of the coffee shop, whether locally or internationally owned, has been one of the more encouraging developments in what is called progress these days. Coffee shops are way better than casinos, for example, much healthier than sports bars, less painful than tattoo parlours, less intrusive than condos. Coffee shops will probably last longer than sports memorabilia

shops did, and probably longer than video rentals, too. But they will not be forever. Coffee will go out of fashion, replaced by some other beverage. Or people may decide, as many seem to be deciding already, that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave the house. They want to stay home and use their own fancy machine to make coffee, or whatever beverage replaces it. Meanwhile, what happens to those former bank buildings now occupied by coffee shops? Some kind of store, you might think, but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it true now that shopping in stores is rapidly being replaced by shopping online (the revival, now that you think about it, of catalogue shopping)? Stores are over. The thing that replaces the coffee shop has to be something people will leave their houses to attend. Games could do the trick â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at one point you could get people out of their houses to go bowling or even play miniature golf. But they can do that at home on the Wii now. Same goes for bingo, although I did see what looked like a big game going on in a shopping centre the other day. It could be a restaurant, but there are already too many restaurants. The same goes for bars. Actually, what there are not enough

of are parking lots, but parking lots are decidedly out of fashion among urban planners and civic politicians these days. Maybe theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come back. The fact is that we probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize what goes there. No one, 50 years ago, knew what a video store was. No one, 30 years ago, knew that people would line up to drink coffee flavoured with vanilla and containing soy milk. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why planning for the future is not a walk in the park, as we would advise the new boss of the National Capital Commission, and probably why a lot of us would sooner spend our time thinking about 50 years ago.

Some motherly advice – take it or leave it

I

’m not sure what was going on last May, but there are a lot of babies in our midst. Between friends, family and acquaintances, I know four expected within a week. As any pregnant woman knows, people just love to give advice -- most of which I’ve been too stubborn to accept over the years -- but I have a few tips for you-momsto-be. It all starts in that first month -- post-delivery. For one precious month, just slow down and do ‘nothing.’ We have images of superwomen in our midst – like the European member of parliament with her baby in a sling, or the corporate woman who returns to work within a month, pumping between meetings -- these should not be our aspirations. The Chinese have a tradition they call the Golden Month -- believing that mom and baby should just stay connected, and pretty much stay in bed, giving them a chance to bond and wait for mom’s body to recover -and probably a copious amount of time to watch television. If your pregnancy hasn’t already spelled this one out for you -- prepare to let go of control. This starts with a baby

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse who’s feeding and sleeping on demand and continues with preschool children who are toilet training, pinching fingers in cabinets and removing her clothing as fast as you’re putting it on, when you’re in a rush to get out the door. On the down side, this can make us frustrated, angry and feel like failure much of the time. On the flip side, however, children have this marvellous way of making time stand still. And when we take the time with them, offering flexibility in our schedules, choosing to enjoy the 20-minutes sitting on the potty waiting for the “tinkle sound,” and having meaningful conversations, life slows down for us, too, in a marvellous and meaningful way. Let other people help. If you are lucky enough to have friends and relatives nearby, let

them visit you and baby on the condition that they stay for short periods -- just enough time to fold a load of laundry. And if the baby falls asleep, be assertive and tell them it’s time for you to go lie down too. Resist the urge to stay up, exhausting yourself, making them tea and toast. Exercise can wait. Again with the superwoman theme, we all know these marvellous women who pop out a baby, deflate like a balloon and start working out like hell within a couple of weeks of the delivery. It’s oversold. In the first weeks, rest is the most important element. After that, if you feel like working out don’t train for a marathon or a Tough Mudder, just do some kegels. And that’s you, done your workout for the day! While this may sound like a

contradiction, given the content of this column, I offer this last tidbit of wisdom: shut your ears to all the advice from around you. We have so much access to conflicting information and everybody, from the teenager across the street to the bachelor that works at the convenience store, has an opinion about how you should feed, sleep and discipline. We live in a time where motherhood has been scrutinized and, in a weird way, professionalized. Despite everyone’s best efforts, however, we have yet to determine how to raise the perfect child, which I can only presume to be the ultimate goal. So it’s best to just ignore everyone. Motherhood is a very personal venture. Allow your instinct to take hold. As long as you’re following safe practices, you get to choose whether to breastfeed or bottle feed, whether to use a stroller or a sling (or both), if the baby sleeps in a cot or in your arms, and whether you play classical music or classic rock to lull baby to sleep. Paradoxically, it may be the most control and the least control you have over any situation in your life. Make the most of it! And welcome, precious babies!

To the editor,

It is rather ironic that after saying “Free speech is the lifeblood of democracy,” the Minister of State for Democratic Reform Pierre Poilievre moved to cut short debate on the Fair Elections Act, a 242-page bill the Harper government is trying to ram through first reading Parliament with only three days of debate. Developing major legislation has traditionally involved review of a draft of the legislation and meetings with public service experts in the relevant department to fine tune the legislation before it is introduced in the House. However, chief electoral office Marc Mayrand told Evan Solomon on CBC’s The House (Feb. 8) that the Fair Elections Act was drafted with only one, one-hour meeting between himself and Pierre Poilievre. During the course of the same week, Postmedia ran a story saying that teams of bureaucrats often work for weeks to prepare a single tweet. “Most 140-character tweets issued by the department are planned weeks in advance; edited by dozens of public servants; reviewed and revised by the minister’s staff; and sanitized through a 12-step protocol.” Isn’t a review of the Elections Act

worth at least as much consultation and review as a “tweet”. Upon examination of the bill one has to wonder if this government is not just incompetent but actually malevolent. If the “Fair” Elections Act is passed, it would: a) prohibit the chief electoral officer from revealing suspected voter fraud. Section 18 of the bill strips the chief electoral officer of his right to use “the media or other means” to “provide the public with information relating to Canada’s electoral process, the democratic right to vote and how to be a candidate.” Shouldn’t the public have the right to know if voter fraud has occurred or is suspected to have occurred? b) require Elections Canada to notify those suspected of violations that they were being investigated! c) transfer Elections Canada’s enforcement operations to the director of public prosecutions in the Justice department. This would make it accountable not to Parliament as a whole as it is now, but to the government of the day, that is, to the very people who might have benefitted from any election fraud that might have occurred.

City’s Wildlife Speakers’ Series The City of Ottawa will be hosting the first event of its Wildlife Speakers’ Series. These free events will take place throughout the year and aim to increase knowledge and appreciation of wildlife as well as promote coexistence through understanding and respect. The first guest speaker will be Dr. Stan Gehrt, a wildlife ecologist, who will provide insight on how residents in urban and rural neighbourhoods can coexist with coyotes.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, February 20, 2014

St. Patrick’s Home looking for more lottery ticket buyers News - Many tickets are still available for St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa Foundation’s annual lottery. Development officer Marlee McElligot said there are approximately 400 tickets still left to be purchased. In its more than 20-year tenure, the lottery has sold out since 2005. The week leading up to the Feb. 24 deadline is always a race, but this year has proven to be a little more challenging, said McElligot. One of the main reasons for this is due to staff concentrating primarily on moving seniors into their new residences by Dec. 30, 2013, she added. Priorities shifted so they could meet the move-in deadline and focus on setting up the spaces. The new home is located right beside the former residence, which will soon be demolished. “There’s always a big push during the last few weeks to try and sell out the lottery,” she said. “We really need the help from the community this year to reach our goals.” Funds raised from the lottery will go towards purchasing medical and recreational equipment for residents, she said. “A lot of it goes towards patient or spiritual care,” she said. Every year, the foundation hopes to sell out the 2,000 tickets which are sold for $100 each, McElligot added. Next year, the foundation hopes to inform buyers specifically where their money went. One of the major incentives for supporters is the fact they have many chances of winning. For anyone who bought an early-bird ticket, their

name went back into the draw, after an early-bird lottery took place on Jan. 22 for a $10,000 and a $5,000 prize. The main draw will take place on March 7 for a $10,000, $5,000, and 12 $1,000 prizes. Monthly draws will take place afterwards on the second Wednesday of the month from April to December for $1,000 and $5,000 prizes. McElligot said one of the main reasons why the lottery is so popular is because there is a cluster of dedicated seniors in the community who always purchase tickets every year. NEW HOME

St. Patrick’s Home is a haven for more than 200 residents, said McElligot. A new building was required as the original one was outdated – it is over 50 years old – and in need of repair. Still a beehive of activity as construction workers and staff move in between piles of supplies and furniture in the hallways, the new building made room for more residents and recreational spaces. Construction on the new building began in September 2011. When the older building is demolished, it will create more parking spaces and a refreshed landscape design. McElligot said she believes the reason why St. Patrick’s Home stands out is due to the 200 volunteers who help run the programs and services for seniors. “They are very committed to helping us out,” she said. For more information on the lottery, visit www.stpats.ca/foundation or phone 613-260-2738.

Council puts the brakes on wider driveways Coun. Jan Harder wants on-street parking permits in the suburbs Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder put the brakes on a move she supports to allow suburban homeowners to widen their driveways to create time to clear up snow and storm water â&#x20AC;&#x153;fallacies.â&#x20AC;? The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee supported a recommendation to allow homeowners to expand their driveways on Jan. 28 in en effort to ease suburban parking woes. A last-minute change to prevent larger suburban driveways from having wider openings to the road didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quell concerns about snow storage or water drainage when the transportation committee got into a debate about snow clearing a week later. That discussion resulted in

councillors worrying about wider driveways augmenting the issue, something Harder called a fallacy. The transportation committee heard on Feb. 5 that the city overspent on snow removal by $21.5 million in 2013. As a result, road maintenance manager Kevin Wylie said he and other city managers will be looking at possible changes to the overnight parking ban thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enacted when more than seven centimeters of snow is forecast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somehow that morphed into it was all about the suburban laneways and it would even be worse if the report that was approved for sensible widening at planning committee was approved,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the fallacy that

came out at that committee meeting, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to take the chance of this very important piece of quality of life and building better suburbs would fail,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. The new rules, once approved by council, would allow more homeowners to widen their driveways. All driveways in the suburbs are already allowed to take up half of the lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s width, but the ability of a homeowner to take advantage of that width was hampered by a restriction preventing driveways from being located in front of the main home. For most lots, the additional driveway width, which must be added in pavers or something similar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not asphalt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would amount to an extra 1.8 metres. A last-minute alteration at

       

planning committee means homeowners wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t automatically be able to create a â&#x20AC;&#x153;curb cutâ&#x20AC;? for the additional driveway width to slope onto the street, but the driveway could retain the same entrance width but become wider in front of the home. Council will reconsider the driveway widening rule at a later date after staff prepares a report about the potential effect widening suburban driveways could have on water drainage and snow storage. When she challenged Wylie about the current snow storage capacity on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawns if they are using the yard for winter parking, Harder said she agreed it would be no different with wider driveways. Harder said widening driveways isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the issue. The core problem is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s density minimums that force developers to cram a large number of small lots into their subdivisions. That is a puzzle the city is looking to solve with its â&#x20AC;&#x153;building better suburbsâ&#x20AC;? initiative, Harder said.

There will be more opportunities for the public to participate this spring before the building better suburbs report goes to planning committee in June. It will likely also result in

Harder has also been pushing for the city to expand its on-street parking permit program to the suburbs. The $65 passes are avail-

timated $90,000 for a single neighbourhood, Harder said she was told. She would rather see the city ditch the signs and declare that certain areas are parking-permit zones, but staff are reticent and would prefer to do a pilot project to test it out, Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact is, if I have something that is reasonable and can work for these folks, I can say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, you parked on the street, you got a ticket, but you had other choices,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good,â&#x20AC;?

THINK BIG:

play small

City home to hundreds of ukulele players Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Arts - Chilly pedestrians on Bank Street are wrapped up in scarves and toques, unaware that a slice of the South Pacific is just steps away. The Bytown Ukulele Club is tuning up. At least once a month, dozens of ukulele players fill the basement room at the Clocktower Brew Pub at Bank and Pretoria Avenue in the Glebe, sharing their love for one of the simplest musical instruments to learn. Sue Rogers is the group’s selfconfessed “facilitator for life.” Before the evening’s playing begins, she zips around the room welcoming newcomers and catching up with some of the group’s 400-plus members. Her enthusiasm for the tiny ukuleles is infectious. Rogers said she was hooked the moment she saw a ukulele perfor-

Some of our youngest are eight and nine years old and you can see them playing next to their grannies SUE ROGERS

mance at the Ottawa Folk Festival. “It was just so easy,” she said. “Within two weeks I was singing away and strumming.” She said the ukulele draws people in because it’s fun to accompany yourself on songs and because players find it easy to move from beginner to intermediate. “Some people can learn in less than an hour,” Rogers said, adding she’s taught some of her co-workers to play over their lunch hour. First-timers are welcome at every regular BUG meeting. “That’s how you learn; being surrounded by it,” she said, adding all ages can take part. “Some of our youngest are eight and nine years old and you can see them playing next to their grannies.” LYRICS AND CHORDS

The four strings of a ukulele need only be strummed with one hand to make a sweet sound. The other hand takes care of chords, but thankfully for newbies, there are many songs that require just two or three chords. The Clocktower’s big screen TVs show no sports – members can instead follow along as chord diagrams and lyrics are shown for the players.

At some of the pub’s tables, music stands have been replaced with iPads, each holding thousands of songs. All the players are welcome to join in and sing as they play. The room – which holds a maximum of 90 uke players – is bedlam at 6:45 p.m. as everyone tunes up or finishes their dinner. The harmony begins promptly at 7 p.m. And if a pub isn’t your thing, you may see BUG members out in the community, playing farmers markets and the like. “All our events are interactive so people can try out the ukuleles,” Rogers said. You can look for dozens of BUG players at the Vernon Canada Day celebration. Along with the small size of the instruments comes a small price tag: another reason for the instrument’s continuing popularity, in addition to portability. Players can start out with ukuleles – they come as soprano, concert, tenor or baritone – that cost less than $50 at city music stores, although you can spend more than $1,000 on one hand made in Hawaii. What’s also striking about ukuleles is that their tiny size bears little relation to how much fun they deliver, both for players and listeners. During a recent beginners night at the Clocktower, there were few smiles while songs were played as the budding musicians concentrated on TV screens and their finger placement to create the chords. But as the final note of each song was played, faces would light up and the smiles and laughter were unstoppable. If the contrast between full-size adults and pint-size ukuleles make you laugh, head to the Internet and search for “Israel” and “Ukulele” to watch the late Israel Kamakawiwo’ole play his favourite instrument. And should you catch the ukulele bug, visit bytownukulele.ca for meeting information and lots of free advice on playing the instrument.

WINTER OLYMPICS INSPIRES EXCELLENCE IN OUR SCHOOLS As I write this article, my 15 year old daughter has just arrived in Gatineau Park for a winter camping trip, as part of her Outdoor Education course offered in many of our public high schools. She will cross country ski to the camp site, pull sleds brimming with food, pots and pans, water, and other wilderness supplies, and then will build a snow structure called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;quinzeeâ&#x20AC;?, and spend the night in it. This Outdoor Education course is very popular in our high schools, especially this year with the excitement of the Winter Olympics. BrookďŹ eld High School is fully subscribed this year once again. How fortunate our students are to have this extraordinary experience!

CONSULTATIONS ON EARLY FRENCH IMMERSION AT W.E. GOWLING CONTINUE On February 5, Board staff held a consultation meeting on a proposal to introduce Early French Immersion at W.E. Gowling starting with senior kindergarten in September 2014. For more information, and to provide your input, please go to www.ocdsb.ca, Current Accommodation Reviews, EFI at W.E. Gowling.

THE OLYMPIC SPIRIT The spirit of the Winter Olympics is present in all our schools. Imaginative principals and teachers are organizing classes and activities inspired by the values so evident in the Olympics: values such as determination, striving for excellence, team work, unselďŹ sh caring and the importance of celebrating the richness and diversity of our global society. Our students are proud of the medals Canadians have won. They are equally inspired by the three Canadian sisters who competed with each other while supporting each other, the Canadian coach who gave a ski to a Russian athlete, and the young Canadian skater who gave up his spot to another member of the Canadian team who had a better chance of getting a medal for Canada. Thanks to our educators who brought the spirit of the Olympics into our schools.

News - The closure of the Beausoleil and Chapel intersection couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come fast enough for area residents. The Lowertown intersection was opened at the end of last year in an effort to find a way to make a safe crossing for the three Lowertown schools; York Street Public School, Sainte-Anne Catholic School and De La Salle High School. A dead-end street, Chapel Street was originally opened at Beausoleil Drive because of construction on Rideau Street. Now, at a request from Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury to allow staff to analyze the opportunity to create a safe pedestrian crossing, the street is now open for through traffic. This is something that raised concerns among a number of Sandy Hill, and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made some Lowertown residents happy, either. Residents from both neighbourhoods aired their concerns at a public meeting on the subject on Feb. 12 at the Rideau Branch library. Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff has worked closely with the province and has been reviewing the Ontario Highway Traffic Act to see what could be done about the intersection. According to Fleury, the volume of people crossing at that point is not enough to warrant a signaled crossing, but to put in the stop sign up is a step in the right direction. During the question and answer format at the meeting, Fleury fielded questions mainly about the roadway opening, particularly about vehicular traffic moving along neighbouring streets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recognize that this is a community piss-off with cars going through the neighbourhood,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the intent is to get a safe crossing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short (term solution) -- albeit long in your opinion, for it to be open, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to get to a solution. I am sorry about the cars going thorough, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short-term solution to find a longterm answer.â&#x20AC;? Therese Goneau, a member of OttawaVanier MPP Madeleine Meilleurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff, also attended the meeting. Goneau, who had been working with Fleury on the issue, said Meilleur personally talked with staff at the Ministry of Transportation to try to find a solution for the intersection after becoming frustrated with the length of time it was taking to find a safe solution. City staff who attended the meeting also said that the timeline is incredibly tight in comparison to anything that has been done in the past. One of the popular potential

Mathieu Fleury to close the street sooner, rather than later. solutions suggested by some in the community, creating a cycling-only stop sign for the intersection, is something that has not been done before in the city and presents its own problems. Regardless of the efforts being made, residents wanted both more and less. A request for the closure of the street came up again and again, with some residents asking the councillor why they are â&#x20AC;&#x153;being held hostageâ&#x20AC;? to the school crossing issue and stating the longer the road is open, the bigger push will be for it to remain open. Johan Hamels, parent council president for De La Salle High School, referred to himself â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the bad guysâ&#x20AC;? who wanted to street opened in an effort to help make the area safer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had kids who have been seriously hurt,â&#x20AC;? Hamels said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what we have advocated for some time and we think even a temporary solution to make it open for cyclists is an improvement over what it was.â&#x20AC;? Some agreed in part with Hamels, but added that the cost of cars coming through the community wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily the best tradeoff. Others agreed the most important fact was trying to keep children crossing the street safe.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should keep in mind why this started,â&#x20AC;? said Sandy Hill resident Chad Rollins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pedestrian issue. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand all the anger -- we should think about the students. Make it safe and deal with the cars.â&#x20AC;? Jennifer Cavanagh said she crosses the intersection with her five year old all the time, sometimes coming incredibly close to getting hit. She said she would like the intersection closed to cars, and also have more measures in general, like speed bumps on Beausoleil to ensure it becomes a safe crossing. Adding speed bumps can be expensive; Fleury said and can take a long time to implement. Lowertown resident John Woodhouse said he felt what everyone in the room was trying to tell Fleury and city staff is to fix the intersection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s damn dangerous out there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slow the cars down and if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, get rid of them.â&#x20AC;? The roadway will remain open, with the plan to close it to traffic and turn it into a cycling crossing as early as the spring. Painting pedestrian crossing lines at the intersection is also part of the plans, which can not be done in the winter and is aimed to be completed in the spring.

Pharmacists can help Supporting Ontarians who want to quit smoking Community - Thinking about quitting smoking? If this is the year you are ready to finally kick the habit here’s how your community pharmacist can help you butt out for good. On average, smokers will attempt to quit five times before achieving success, and only 10 per cent of smokers will actually manage to permanently quit on their own. “The health benefits of quitting smoking are staggering and begin within minutes, but the fact is quitting is not easy,“ said Carlo Berardi, community pharmacist and chair of the Ontario Pharmacists Association. “The good news is that with the right quit plan and support, you can do it.” Pharmacists are on the frontline of smoking cessation because they are trained to provide all aspects of support – from behavioural counselling to recommendations and prescription of smoking cessation aids and medications. “Working with your pharmacist is convenient and effective, and most importantly it means you are not alone on your quitting journey,” said Berardi. “Pharmacists are able to provide you with one-on-one support, to ensure you have a proper plan and all the tools and resources to help you stay on track.” As of September 2011, all Ontario Drug Benefit patients who smoke are eligible to enroll in a pharmacy-based smoking cessation program. The program provides:

• Assessment • Consultation • Follow-up appointments • Counselling and advice • Support tools and resources • Prescribed drug therapy options and smoking cessation aids Since the pharmacy-based smoking cessation program started, Ontario pharmacists have provided counselling to more than 7,000 patients, helping between 25 and 28 per cent of patients successfully quit. Still, more than 1.7 million Ontarians smoke, and each year there

The good news is that with the right quit plan and support, you can do it

are almost 16,000 Ontarians who suffer from tobacco-related deaths. “We all know the many health consequences associated with smoking, and that is why it is important to raise awareness about the support that is available,” said Berardi. “The Ontario Pharmacists Association is encouraging all Ontarian’s who smoke to speak with their local pharmacists and to learn more about how they can help you live a healthier life smoke-free.” For more information on the pharmacybased smoking cessation program, visit www. opatoday.com, or talk with your pharmacist.

School hosts parents on having ‘the talk’ ‘Technology has drastically changed what children are seeing in regards to relationships Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - With the rise in social media, it’s important that parents continue to have a conversation with their children about the birds and the bees. Human sexuality researcher Jocelyn Wentland is hosting “(How to) talk to your kids about sex,” a free presentation for parents only, with a question and answer period on Feb. 27 at Earl of March Secondary School from 7 to 9 p.m. “It’s no longer a singular talk – it’s an ongoing talk that starts from a young age and will continue into adulthood,” said Wentland, who has

a master’s degree in science and is a part-time professor and PhD student at the University of Ottawa. “Parents are such an important voice in discussions with their children related to relationships and sexuality. And when parents don’t get involved in these discussions, their children are at the mercy of everyone else’s perspectives on relationships and sexuality. For me, that’s a very risky play for a parent.” Youth today learn much of what they know about sex through social media, the Internet and movies. Parents have a pivotal role to play in helping to shape their child’s knowledge. “Technology has drastically

changed what children are seeing in regards to relationships and sexuality. That means that the conversations are happening all the time around them,” said Wentland. “Parents need to add their voices to that conversation.” The Centretown resident will dis-

cuss important tools and strategies parents can employ to engage their children in the conversation, as well as answer any questions from the audience.

Why using a Realtor is important There are many options available to you as a homeowner when it comes to selling your property. The availability of resources to the public has increased over the past few years and selling your home yourself can sound like a great idea when the only thing in consideration is the percentage of commission you may save. The truth is that people who choose to sell their home independently more than often sell their properties for less, so whatever perceived savings they may have had in commission is often lost due to a lower selling price.

Enjoying winter activities with less pain News - The winter months offer no shortage of fun-ďŹ lled seasonal activities. Unfortunately, many Canadians are sidelined from participating in the things they might normally like to do this time of year, such as crosscountry skiing, snow-shoeing,

indoor tennis or even going away on vacation. People with chronic pain due to osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, for example, often avoid even simple things such as visiting family and friends over the holidays. Following these tips can

help you better manage OA knee pain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so that you can get back to enjoying the activities youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do this winter: Shed the pounds: if you are carrying excess weight, adjusting your diet to include more servings of fruits and vegetables and lower-calorie

foods, for example, can help you slim down. Get moving: Exercise and physiotherapy can help improve muscle strength and joint stability. Low impact movement, such as practicing yoga and engaging in meditative activities, can also help

you cope with pain. Talk the talk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so you can walk the walk: Speak with your doctor to learn about the options available to relieve pain and improve functionality. An open dialogue will help you to better understand your conditionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and best treatment

option. There are a number of over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, which can help relieve OA knee pain. Always consult with your healthcare provider. News Canada

Sports - As Olympic athletes marched into the opening ceremonies at the Sochi Olympics, back home in OrlĂŠans, Garneau high school students were showing just as much enthusiasm for one of their own. Ivanie Blondin graduated from Garneau several years ago, completing her senior year as she trained in Montreal, but she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been forgotten. The entire school, 1,100 students,

were invited to cheer on the Olympic long-track speed skater the day of the opening ceremony, Feb. 7. Her parents, Robert and Lise, took it all in, snapping some photos of their own to show their daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was so nice, we appreciate it,â&#x20AC;? Lisa said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good that they remembered her after so many years.â&#x20AC;? Students had made a sketch from a photo of the speed skater and decorated the gym with Olympic signs and posters for the grad. They were lead in French cheers, which translated to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ivanie, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of you.â&#x20AC;? Her parents said they were planning to wake up early at their Rockland home to watch her race several days later. They have company to watch the nerve-wracking races â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a second OrlĂŠans speed skater, Vincent de Haitre, is also competing in Sochi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both from the same club, so Ivanie and Vincent almost grew up together,â&#x20AC;? Robert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ivanie was a coach at one point, and would give him pointers when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d come back to Ottawa.â&#x20AC;? There is a four year gap between the two skaters, but they both trained in OrlĂŠans before moving to Calgary to train with the national team. The Blondins said they planned to get together with de Haitreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents to watch their children compete in the Olympics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very, very excited for her,â&#x20AC;? Lisa said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know her stress level has gone down now that she made the Olympics, so hopefully she skates well.â&#x20AC;? Blondin finished 24th in the 3,000-metre several days later, and she was scheduled to compete after press time in the 5,000-metre event. The team pursuit, her best chance at a medal, is scheduled for this weekend, Feb. 21 and 22.

Woodroffe Avenue to be closed at Prince of Wales Long-standing community plan to be realized when new bridge opens Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A long-promised closure of Woodroffe Avenue at Prince of Wale Drive finally has the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stamp of approval. The southern stretch of Woodroffe from Prince of Wales to Cresthaven Drive will be turned into a dead end sometime in the next year, once the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge is open and available as an alternative route into the city from Barrhaven. The road will also be narrowed from four lanes to two lanes just north of Prince of Wales. The city was obligated to make the change thanks to a law passed more than a decade ago by the former city of Nepean, but it will mean

longer commute times for some residents coming from the south end of the city, including Manotick, said Coun. Steve Desroches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I certainly accept there will be some inconvenience to some residents,â&#x20AC;? the Gloucester-South Nepean councillor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would rather live in a community thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing than one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in decline.â&#x20AC;? Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt represents the rural area to the south and argued the dead end would create commuting headaches for his constituents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cutting off a transportation use thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very essential not for the community in it, but communities around it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Moffatt said he has no illusions the decision would change and he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t influence it because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

have a vote on the planning committee and the issue wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to city council for final approval. City lawyer Tim Marc confirmed the city is legally obligated to make Woodroffe into a dead end at Prince of Wales because the plan of subdivision developer Minto filed with the city is a legally binding contract. That approval recommitted the city to closing the road, which has been on the books in the Official Plan since before amalgamation. The road closure between Cresthaven and Prince of Wales drives will eliminate unsafe conditions that have been a concern for the community of Heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Desire as it waited for the road closure to be confirmed, said Mac Prescott of the Heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Desire Community Association.

The area of 140 homes is â&#x20AC;&#x153;severedâ&#x20AC;? by Woodroffe, he said. Since the community was built under the assumption the road would be turned into a dead end, there are no sidewalks or safety measures in the area, for instance leading people to park along the road and cross through a ditch

The City of Ottawa is undertaking the Carp Road Widening Environmental Assessment Study to determine the most appropriate means to accommodate and manage increasing transportation infrastructure requirements in the northwest Stittsville area. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transportation Master Plan (TMP 2013) identiďŹ es the need for Carp Road widening from two lanes to four lanes between Highway 417 to Hazeldean Road as a Phase 2 project to be completed between 2020 and 2025. Consultation This second Open House will provide an overview of study progress to-date, including the alternative designs considered and the evaluation criteria and methodology used to determine preliminary preferred design for the corridor. Your participation in Open House meetings is important where you can discuss the project with the study team and provide feedback. There will be on-going public consultation activities during the remaining course of the study. The EA study is being undertaken in accordance with Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EA Act, fulďŹ lling requirements as a Municipal Class EA process for a Schedule â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; project. The EA process will involve developing, assessing, and evaluating alternatives, which will result in a Recommended Plan which will be presented to City Council for approval. Further information on the Carp Road Widening EA Study is available at ottawa.ca/carproad Interested persons can provide comments throughout the EA process. Any comments received will be collected under the Environmental Assessment Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record.

News - The Greely Community Association heard a presentation from Dump This Dump 2, a group opposing the Taggart-Miller’s Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre. The group members have been protesting against the centre, which they argue is a landfill, since the Carlsbad Springs site at Boundary Road and Hwy 417 was announced. Dump This Dump 2 president Sue Langlois said the community is against the centre, which she argues is a landfill or dump. The centre is for industrial and commercial waste, some of which will be recycled. The percentage of waste that will be recycled isn’t final, but is held to the provincial standard of at least 12 per cent. Previously, Taggart-Miller has stated they are aiming to achieve a 30 to 40 per cent diversion rate. Langlois said she isn’t convinced there will be that much recycling, and is concerned about the material that isn’t recycled going into a landfill. The group doesn’t believe that the city needs more landfill space and that the current amount is sufficient. They said that some sites will be expanded and given more land, allowing them to stay open for longer. The members are also concerned about leda clay in the

area, which they say could provide an unstable base. The project is currently undergoing an environmental assessment, after which it would need provincial approval in order to move forward. Dump This Dump 2 members answered several questions from the audience about approvals, and encouraged Greely residents to get involved. Brayman told community association members they could get involved more by contacting the Dump This Dump 2 group directly. Langlois encouraged residents to write to the Ministry of the Environment to voice displeasure, and brought along petitions for residents to sign. They also had more information for anyone that wanted to get involved “We’re not a willing community,” she said. Bruce Brayman, president of the Greely Community Association, said the group asked the association if they could come and present at a meeting. Each meeting, the community association tries to have a different speaker. As an association, there is no official stance on the centre. The biggest impact to Greely would be potential truck traffic on Mitch Owens Road, Brayman said. Taggart-Miller posted on the project’s website that the draft environmental assessment for the proposed centre will be ready this winter.

Assumption students plan Earth Day art show Students want to include community in event Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Do you love ďŹ nding new ways to reuse or recycle? Are you looking for a neat new art piece for your living room? If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, a group of Grade 6 students at Assumption Catholic School are working on hosting just the art show for you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early days for the students of Amy Howeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grade 6 class and their upcoming art show, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already reached out to local artists and begun brainstorming types of art they will be creating for the big event. Planned for Earth Day, the students have decided to tie the theme to environment-savvy art pieces. Howe said it was her students who decided on the idea of hosting a community art show. The students are still hashing out the details of how to get the community participating, but one thing is for sure -- they want Vanier to be involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make it huge,â&#x20AC;? Howe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the community to be as much a part of this as we are.â&#x20AC;? The class is participating in the Entrepreneurial Achievement Program business adven-

Students in Assumption Catholic Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grade 6 class discussed the plans for an upcoming Earth Day art show. The show will help raise money to send the students on a graduation trip this year. ture. The program encourages students to build a business and raise money for local charities. Administered by the Learning Partnership, it connects public school classes with local business to teach the students how to run a successful business. In order to have a greater understanding of what artists can create, the class invited local Vanier artist Geoff Derry to their class on Feb. 10 to teach them about other art mediums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great, he really inspired them that art is more than just one type of concept,â&#x20AC;?

Howe said. She said the goal now is for each student to create one piece of art and to help decide the set-up for the show, which will include a series of art stations available for guests to have the opportunity to engage in their own artistic activity. Themes for stations will include things like splash paint, sculpting, drawing, and plastic bag art. The goal is to have a few local artists aid in running stations. The class has involved their

schoolmates in the project as well. Grade 2 students will be creating a piece of art based on egg cartons and students in grades 3 to 6 will focus on using plastic bags as their main material to create. The money raised will help send the Grade 6 class on its graduation trip to St. Brigidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Camp in Quebec. Howe said as the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s date gets closer, more help may be needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Its early stages right now,â&#x20AC;? Howe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But our arms are open and we will need a lot of support.â&#x20AC;?

This area between city hall’s heritage building and the Human Rights Monument could be renamed in honour of late South African leader Nelson Mandela.

Mayor proposes naming ‘Nelson Mandela Square’ Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Mayor Jim Watson’s idea to name a yard between city hall and the courthouse after Nelson Mandela is up for public scrutiny. Watson revealed the idea during his “state of the city” speech to city council on Jan. 22. “It would be a small, but meaningful way to recognize the man who inspired people the world over,” the mayor said. The proposal is under consideration by the city’s commemorative naming committee, which is seeking the public’s feedback. If approved, the area in front of the city hall heritage building facing Elgin Street, in front of the Human Rights Monument, will be renamed. Comments on this proposal must be direct-

ed to Diane Blais in the city clerk’s office by emailing namingottawa@ottawa.ca no later than March 14. The South African leader dedicated his life to ending that country’s apartheid regime died on Dec. 5, 2013. Mandela was South Africa’s first black chief executive, elected as president from 1994 to 1999 after serving 18 years in prison for plotting to overthrow the government using violence. He was the first living foreigner to be made an honourary Canadian citizen and the first foreign leader to be made a member of the Order of Canada. Mandela visited Ottawa in 1998 and unveiled a plaque honouring John Peters Humphrey in front of the Human Rights Monument outside city hall’s heritage building.

Thinking green and planting roots in Blackburn Hamlet Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Forget dreaming in technicolour, residents of Blackburn Hamlet are dreaming in a different colour: green. The community association held a meeting on Feb. 6 to talk about tree planting in the hamlet. The goals of the tree planting initiatives are to increase the number of trees planted, and give the city input on where trees are best placed. The city is already undergoing its own tree planting program in areas where trees have been lost because of the Emerald Ash Borer infestation that has affected most of Ottawa. But by the community undergoing their own planting days with volunteer labour, the neighbourhood can benefit from more trees. Barb Sweazey from the community association spoke with the residents who attended about the placement of trees, and where Blackburn Hamlet could use them. Getting feedback helps the association give feedback to the city about where trees are best planted in the community. The city forestry department will listen to community feedback and take it into consideration when planning their own planting projects. The plan for the first stage of resident planting is to put five to 10 “smallish trees” and five to 10 shrubs at Joshua Bradley Park and Tom Budd Park. The first, small planting session,

will take place in the spring. In the fall there will be a larger planting session, with many more trees planted around the hamlet, said community association president Laura Dudas. “The goal is to use (the spring plant) as a pilot and then in the fall really celebrate and plant as many trees as we can,” she said. “This is a chance to say, how do we really want our community to look in 10, 20, 30 years as far as trees.” KANATA’S ADVICE

Sarah Dehler from the Briarbrook Morgan’s Grant Community Association, presented the work that her community association has done with the Shirley’s Brook project in spring 2013. She said they had success in Kanata by having people “adopt” different trees, and agreeing to water them over the summer. Watering can significantly contribute to a tree’s survival rate. If people are available to water, larger trees are more feasible. If no one is available to water, planting more smaller trees is a better way to go, she said. There are a fair number of trees which don’t survive, so residents need to be prepared to see not all make it through the year. She also suggested short planting sessions, as the physical labour can be quite tiring.

Ratatouille a dish that can be enjoyed all year long Lifestyle - Ratatouille is a traditional French stewed vegetable dish, typically prepared in the summer, in the area of Provence or Nice, France. The original recipe used only zucchini, tomatoes, green and red sweet peppers, onions and garlic. The dish today adds eggplant to the mixture. There is much debate as to how to make traditional ratatouille. Some sauté all the vegetables, others cook each vegetable separately layering each in a casserole and baking in an oven. Ratatouille works as a side dish, as a meal with rice, pasta or polenta. Preparation time: 15 to 20 minutes. Cooking time: about 40 minutes. Serves 8 to 10. INGREDIENTS

• 25 ml (2 tbsp) extra-virgin olive oil • 1 red onion, cut into thin wedges • 5 cloves garlic, minced • 15 ml (1 tbsp) each dried basil and oregano • 1 large sweet green pepper, cut into chunks • 2 zucchini, cut into chunks • 1 eggplant (about 750 g/1.5 lb), cut into chunks • 4 tomatoes, chopped • 1 can (796 ml/28 oz) whole tomatoes

• 45 ml (3 tbsp) tomato paste • 5 ml (1 tsp) granulated sugar • Salt and pepper • 50 ml (1/4 cup) minced fresh parsley • 175 ml (3/4 cup) crumbled feta cheese PREPARATION

In a large Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, basil and oregano, and cook until slightly softened and aromatic -- about four minutes. Add the green pepper, zucchini, eggplant

and tomatoes. Stir in the canned tomatoes, and breaking them up with a spoon. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste and cook for seven minutes. You can make this ahead, covering it and refrigerating for up to two days. When ready to serve, stir in the parsley and sprinkle feta on top of each portion. Foodland Ontario

News - Orléans Coun. Bob Monette will be running again, he confirmed on Feb. 12. The councillor has served for two full terms, after being elected in a byelection in 2006. He won the municipal election in 2006, and was re-elected in 2010. The 62-year-old councillor is a long-time resident of Queenswood Heights, and was involved in politics before amalgamation. He was a councillor for the former Cumberland township from 1985 to 1991, and then worked both for the arthritis society, and for two different MPPs. When Monette first ran for city council, he said he would only pursue two terms. “I’ve always told people I would be running for two terms,” he said. “When I was Cumberland councillor, I was councillor for two terms. And after two terms, I felt I had accomplished as much as I could. And I didn’t feel as if I had any new initiatives to bring to the table.” He said things have been different with the Ottawa council, so he changed his mind about running for a third term. He’s involved with projects he wants to see through, which are happening in the next term. In January, as some candidates started to file registration papers, he was still publically undecided if he would run again. He said people he’s talked to have been supportive of him running for a third term. “If they do not agree, they have a right to oppose a decision, and they have the right to state their views on Oct. 27,” he said.

Orléans Coun. Bob Monette confirmed on Feb. 12 that he will run for re-election. He isn’t releasing his platform yet, saving it for a kickoff at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School on Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. He said two of the main issues will be transportation and employment. Currently, no other candidates are registered to run in the Orléans ward.

House parties would always bring special magic

W

hen I asked my older and much wiser sister Audrey how people knew where the next Saturday night house party was being held without being asked, she said it was very simple. The central switchboard operator just got on the switchboard and called everyone in Northcote, and told them where it was, and she also told them not to forget to bring something for the lunch. Well, that all made perfect sense to me. That Saturday, it was being held at Aunt Bertha and Uncle Alec’s home, just across the 20-Acre Field, so that meant the place would be fair jumping. With their large family, our five and goodness knows how many other kids from the Northcote area, it would be a rip roarin’ night. I asked Audrey, who I thought was the smartest girl in Renfrew County, if she thought it would be another night of magic. The magic I was talking about was a

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories secret between my sister and me. “It could be,” she said with a grin. As soon as the evening chores were done, a hurried supper eaten, and our nextto-Sunday best clothes put on, we headed across the field in the flat-bottom sleigh. We were the first to arrive. Within minutes the yard was full of sleighs and cutters, and Aunt Bertha’s usually immaculate kitchen was full of boots, and outerwear piled in a heap in a corner. Aunt Bertha and Uncle Alex had one of the largest kitchens in the Northcote area, so there was still lots of room for tables for euchre, and a place for the fiddlers and guitar players to sit when it came time to change from cards to square dancing. I knew without asking that

out in the summer kitchen, 11-quart baskets would be sitting wrapped in clean towels, and then piled under blankets to keep the innards from freezing. I could see the big white granite teapots teaming on the back of the cook stove, everything was ready for a great night of fun. Aunt Bertha would have opened the parlour, and people spread out wherever they could find a place to sit or stand. The very youngest of the children, and that included me, would soon tire of watching the adults at their card games, and we would head upstairs to play jacks or marbles or snakes and ladders. The bedrooms were large at Aunt Bertha’s, much larger than ours across the

Pet Adoptions

BOOTS (A162597)

Meet Boots (A162597), a sweet and affectionate eight-year-old girl looking for her forever home. Boots is always one of the first in her room to greet visitors to the shelter - even if it means leaving her cozy napping spot! This playful kitty also loves playing with a laser pointer. If you’re a shutterbug, Boots is a perfect match for you, as she loves having her photo taken and is a total ham for the camera. Her irresistible green eyes and soft purrs will surely win your heart! For more information on Boots and all our adoptable animals, stop by the OHS at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Check out our website at ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of the animals available for adoption.

field. But like ours, the beds were made up of soft downy feather ‘tickings,’ puffy and inviting. Upstairs we could hear the laughter and the tables being slapped when someone yelled “Euchre!” It would be a late night. Much later than we younger ones were used to. And it didn’t take long for one after the other of us to crawl onto one of the downy beds – just to rest a bit, as Joyce would say. There were so many of us that we had to lay cross ways on the beds, so that everyone had a place. Beatrice, who was a great story teller, would start into one of her tales, and Cora might sing. And that’s when the magic would happen. I had no idea it was even talking place, and it would take some time for me to realize it had. But I would waken, and the sun would be pouring in the window. Just like magic, I would be back in my own bed, in the very room I shared with my sister Audrey in our old log house across the 20-Acre Field. How did it happen? How

could I possibly fall asleep in an upstairs bedroom at Aunt Bertha’s, right between my two best friends, Joyce and Velma, and waken the next morning in my own bed? I would go downstairs and

wake up in my own bed?” Audrey would say the same words she said every time I asked. “It’s just Renfrew County magic, Mary, just Renfrew County magic.” It would be many years

There were so many of us that we had to lay cross ways on the beds, so that everyone had a place

look for my sister Audrey, and once again we would share my secret question. “How did it happen, Audrey? How did I fall asleep at the Thoms with the music playing downstairs, and then

before I would know that it was my father who would wrap me in a blanket after the Saturday night party came to an end, and carry me to the sleigh and tuck me into my own bed. Magic indeed!

Microchips will not fade or be lost over time. Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, ensuring the speedy return of a lost pet. While tags may be lost from time to time, tags are still important as a quick and visual way of identifying your pet. For more information, call 613-725-3166 ext. 221 or e-mail microchip@ottawahumane.ca. The next clinic runs March 9.

painless. Each microchip has a unique ID number that can be scanned at shelters and vet clinics. Important information about you and your pet is entered into a national database and can be used to contact you if your lost pet has been found. The OHS holds microchip clinics throughout the year. The cost is $50, a small price to pay for a lifetime of security.

A Microchip Can Help Your Pet Get Home Each month, hundreds of stray animals are brought to the OHS. Sadly, many have no identification, which makes it difficult for shelter staff to find their owners. A microchip provides a permanent, non-removable means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time. The microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted under the skin and is virtually

Pull up a chair for a different massage Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Community - Sharon Anderson sat at a green light in the left-turning lane, blinker on, waiting for traffic to clear. Another vehicle came careening up the street and rammed into Anderson’s car. She suffered severe whiplash during that crash 16 years ago. “That left me really stiff,” said the Kanata woman. “It didn’t rule my life but it comes back.” Heavy lifting or simple household cleaning can leave the spry 70-year-old feeling sore. Her back problems are exacerbated by spinal stenosis, a bulging disk and arthritis. For years she’s slept on her back with a pillow between her knees, instead of her preferred right-side sleeping position, to help alleviate the tension. She visited a chiropractor and underwent physiotherapy to help the pain. But it wasn’t until late last year that she started to feel real relief. At a spiritual workshop, she met Kecia Lee, a certified massage practitioner. Lee practices chair massage, where the client sits instead of lying down. They exchanged information and Anderson had her first in-home chair massage in November. That night was the first time in more than a decade that she was able to sleep on her right side. “When I started having

Lee visits people at the house, at their office or at her home-based clinic in South Keys. these massages with Kecia I was very grateful,” said Anderson, who also no longer takes painkillers for her back aches. “It precipitates a kind of healing. That’s something I’m mighty grateful for.” SITTING POSITION

The blue massage chair is portable, with adjustable seat-

ing and knee, arm and head rests for all body shapes and heights. Lee visits people in their homes, their work places or at her home-based clinic in South Keys. The sitting position helps alleviate tension on the lower back, as well as the chest and stomach. “You’re so comfortable, you’re not getting squashed,” said Anderson. “Being a se-

nior, in the wintertime having someone come to your home is wonderful … This is just a gift to have someone come into your home and take care of you.” Aside from the physical benefits, Lee’s massage also helps to alleviate emotional stress, promotes mental clarity, improves sleep, energizes the body and boosts immu-

nity. “When we’re feeling stressed all the cortisol (a

stress hormone) is flooding our bodies, which leads to problems,” said Lee, founder of Energy at Work. “When we’re calm and relaxed we’re less likely to be reactive.” Lee has been a chair massage practitioner since 2001, a career she chose because she wanted to help people heal. “I knew I wanted to be in the healing field … and to give to people as much as possible,” she said. “It’s the giving and connection I’m able to establish with people – I’m most grateful for that. It’s healing for me as well.” Massages can last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the needs of the client. “You will get a benefit from it whether it’s a half hour, an hour or 10 minutes,” said Anderson. “It works, it absolutely works.” Anderson, who frequents the Kanata Seniors Centre with her husband, said she wanted to let others know about Lee’s “healing hands.” “I’m thinking of all of them who could benefit,” Anderson said. “Being with her is quite a blessing.”

Protect Your Young Family. Today and in Your Future. Many people don’t think too much about life insurance — until they have a family. If you don’t already have life insurance, or have only minimal coverage, now is a great time to make sure your children and spouse would be financially protected if you were to pass away. Life insurance can help by providing a tax-free benefit that your family could use to cover expenses, pay off loans and debts, pay for your children’s education and more. Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to life insurance:  Your life insurance benefit can be used to pay for whatever your family needs or wants — from mortgage costs to day-to-day expenses, to summer camps and vacations.  A stay-at-home spouse needs life insurance too, even if they’re not earning an income. The work they do at home, including childcare, housekeeping, cooking and more, comes with significant financial value. Life insurance could cover those costs and give them the flexibility to take time off work to help themselves and your children deal with their loss.  Even if you have coverage from work, it may not be enough. Plus, it may not continue if you were to leave your current employer. Your own policy stays with you, regardless of your employment status.  We offer a variety of life insurance plans that can suit your budget, lifestyle and needs. And, you can make changes to your policy as your life changes and your needs evolve.
