News - The community will get a say in the future of an old public works site in Heatherington. G l o u c e s t e r- S o u t h g a t e Coun. Diane Deans lobbied for more consideration to turn the lot into a park after learning city staff was recommending the 3.2-hectare parcel be declared surplus and transferred to the cityâ€™s community lands development corporation to be sold. Workers from the Southeast Ottawa Community Health Centre have been calling on the city to consider hanging onto the land for a future park. The city has already agreed to save 0.16 hectares of the land to create a 50-plot public garden. â€œThis densely populated area lacks the same access as
other parts of the city,â€? Euphrasie Emedi, who works at the health centre, told the cityâ€™s finance committee on March 4. â€œThis area would be a very, very good opportunity for residents in that area to access green space and community gardens.â€? Deans hasnâ€™t thrown her support behind the park idea yet â€“ she said she wants to hear what the community would prefer to see at the site. â€œThis land provides an opportunity not to be missed,â€? she said. A major consideration is a change that will see taller, more dense development spring up in the area in the future. Heatherington Road was designated as an arterial main street as part of the cityâ€™s fiveyear Official Plan update last fall. With buildings up to six storeys tall allowed, the already dense area is going to be home to a lot more people and businesses in the future. See PUBLIC, page 2

News - City councillors grilled staff over a damning report on the beleaguered Airport Parkway pedestrian bridge on March 5. Council members, including River Coun. Maria McRae, whose ward contains the in-
complete structure, pressed for staff to be held to account after an independent review revealed major problems with oversight and project management at city hall. City solicitor Rick Oâ€™Connor said that day of reckoning day will have to wait until the city manager conducts an internal review of what went wrong.
â€œThe city has to do a thorough review to see if there were obligations breached,â€? Oâ€™Connor said. That will entail interviewing everyone connected to the project, which is three years overdue and more than $5 million over budget. See LOT, page 3 R0012515866

Neighbourhood residents will have a chance to weigh in on what they’d like to see happen with a 3.2-hectare former public works yard on Heatherington Road the city wants to sell. The community health centre says the site is the only available place for a park in the at-risk neighbourhood.

The city now has to follow up that arterial mainstreet designation by updating the zoning, which defines the ways each parcel of land in the area can be used, and exactly what size the buildings can be. Once that is done, Deans’ motion, which the finance committee supported, would ensure the community is consulted. The ideas and comments arising from that consultation would be reported back to committee and city council before the land is transferred for sale, since the consultation might change the recommendation. The councillor made the case that the property at 1770 Heatherington Rd. was unique from other parcels the city was looking to offload at the same time because the city didn’t consult the community by holding a “visioning exercise” or create a demonstration plan of what the former works yard could become. Emedi agreed it would be important for residents in the area – many
of whom live below the poverty line – to feel like they have a voice in the process. “We would hope that before the land is transferred … the community members in this area be given a chance to express their concerns and interests.” Deans called the neighbourhood a “community at risk.” “There are people in that neighbourhood who are fearful,” she said, referring to crime and gang activity in the area. “They are afraid to come out of their homes.” The old public works yard is likely the only plot of land in the area that could be suitable for a park, Kelli Tonner, the direct of community services for the health centre, has said previously. “We think to promote social inclusion, social cohesion and community life that we would be better served by creating more green space and community gardens to address food security issues in our community,” Tonner said.

â€˜Lot of blame to go aroundâ€™: mayor Continued from page 1
Oâ€™Connor couldnâ€™t say how long that review might take. Any disciplinary action would be left to the city manager, Kent Kirkpatrick. The independent review led Kirkpatrick to issue an apology at the meeting. â€œWe apologize to council for the result or lack of result that took place,â€? he said, calling the issue a â€œmajor embarrassment for the city. â€œManagement is responsible for the management of this project and the failure of this project to date.â€? Mayor Jim Watson also said he wants to get to learn what went wrong. â€œThere is a lot of blame to go around,â€? he said. â€œThere is certainly a sense by my colleagues on city council that we have to get to the bottom of exactly what happened and who was responsible and at the appropriate time, when we have all the answers, that information will come ultimately
to council and to the public. â€œWeâ€™ve got to do better for the taxpayers,â€? the mayor said. Deputy city manager Nancy Schepers assured council members that some internal changes are already being made and she will personally see that happens. â€œI will be monitoring that in terms of ensuring we have institutionalized all of the changes,â€? she said. She noted that 95 per cent of infrastructure projects in Ottawa are completed on time and on budget. The main thrust of the SEG report focused on lax project management at city hall, including an eight-month delay due to â€œinternal workload issuesâ€? with the staff on the project. That delay shrunk the construction time to four months, which city staff didnâ€™t rethink despite being told by construction contractors that the deadline was â€œtotally unrealistic.â€? â€œWe could have ďŹ xed this before shovels went into the ground,â€? said Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli.
McRae pressed Newell on why he hadnâ€™t visited the high-proďŹ le construction site until after problems were identiďŹ ed by councillors in the fall of 2011. â€œThis is exactly part of the culture I want Schepers to comment on,â€? McRae said. â€œI support them, the public service, (but) there are so many levels of bureaucracy in this place.â€? Newell said it wasnâ€™t protocol for upper-level managers to make site visits to construction projects unless there were issues or requests for additional oversight. The bridge is currently being redesigned by a new company and is on track to be built by the new deadline of November.
Delays and lax oversight of the planned Airport Parkway pedestrian bridge, seen here under construction in 2011, could lead to staff discipline. FILE
More family doctors in Ontario News - Ontarioâ€™s six family medicine programs have graduated 1,900 more family doctors in the last decade, transforming family medicine and improving access for patients, according to a new report by the faculties of medicine. The Family Medicine Expansion Report says a 10-year plan to address a shortage of family doctors by Ontarioâ€™s faculties of medicine and the province has more than doubled the number of family medicine residents and improved health care delivery in more than 155 communities. â€œAs a result of a strategic collaboration by Ontario faculties of medicine and the Ontario government, we have signiďŹ cantly more family doctors in the province than we did a decade ago,â€? says Bonnie M. Patterson, president and CEO of the Council of Ontario Universities, which represents the provinceâ€™s 21 publicly funded universities. â€œThe transformation of primary care has been dramatic and, as a result, many more Ontario patients have access to the care they need.â€? Today, Ontarioâ€™s family medicine programs are graduating more than 500 doctors per year, up from 200 per year in 2003. As a result, ďŹ gures released last year by the Ontario Medical Association indicate that 2.1 million more On-
566 Cataraqui Woods Dr., Kingston, ON K7P 2Y5
tario patients now have access to primary health care. â€œWe have partnered with more than 155 communities throughout Ontario,â€? says Dr. Michael Strong, dean of the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University, and Co-Chair of the Council of Ontario Faculties of Medicine. â€œAs a result, these communities have been able to recruit thousands of new doctors, and millions of people across the province are now attached to a family doctor. Thatâ€™s a huge advance in primary care that also saves many unnecessary visits to emergency rooms.â€? Ontarioâ€™s faculties of medicine and the Ontario government embarked on a strategic collaboration to address a serious doctor shortage in 2003. Focused efforts were made to address the shortage and medical school enrolment grew by 80 per cent.

Euchre a big deal for breast cancer research Sabine Gibbins email@example.com
News - Breast cancer never took away Linda McFarlane’s humorous spirit. While she understood the seriousness of the disease, she always maintained her light take on the situation. Her brother Jim recalls when she compared having cancer to a prison sentence. “She took some mug shots of herself – complete with a serial number – and sent them to various members of our family,” said Jim. “We all had a good laugh, even through the seriousness of her situation… Later that day, we gave Linda a call and asked her how long she might be imprisoned.” McFarlane was one of the organizers behind the LoveGives Euchre Tournament, a breast cancer fundraising event which took place at the Royal Oak in the city’s south end on March 9. LovesGives is a charitable organization that supports people or causes while connecting groups and individuals in the community. McFarlane said he started LoveGives a few years ago with some friends to raise funds and awareness for a variety of charities and causes. Holding the euchre tournament was important to McFarlane because breast cancer hit close to home. His sister first went through breast cancer 10 years ago, enduring rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, but even with the gravity of her illness, her family and friends still
managed to find ways to laugh. In December, Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time after undergoing genetic testing and discovering a gene that predisposes her to breast cancer. Considering her previous breast cancer and this new illness, the oncologist recommended a double mastectomy. “For most people, this would be very disheartening news indeed,” he said. “When I talked to Linda to check in and see how she was doing, her attitude surprised me. She said she was relieved to have the news. Her feeling is that now the situation will be dealt with definitively. In this instance, there will be no chance of the cancer coming back.” She explained the mastectomy process in her humorous way to her brother, a personality trait McFarlane credits as getting them through many rough patches in life. But breast cancer affects people differently, as is the case with McFarlane’s good friend who just started her first day of chemotherapy treatment. “She will have six regimes of chemo over 18 weeks,” he said. “We talked about her losing her hair and the various side effects of the treatment. She is scared and my heart aches for her, wanting her to be spared from any suffering.” “There are so many women like my sister and friend that suffer through this illness. Some of course are more fortunate than others in their outcomes.” For more information on LoveGives, visit www.lovegives.net.
John McFarlane plays a friendly game of euchre at a charity euchre tournament with friends and family at the Royal Oak in Centretown on March 8. McFarlane’s non-profit organization, LoveGives.Net helps raise money for various charities and causes in the city.

Families by the car-loads made the trek to the Canadian Science and Technology Museum 2013 March break. This year, the museum will continue with its annual event, offering activities all month long.
News - Catapults, 3-D imagery, a magic show, star gazing and learning the intricacies of what it takes to become an engineer are among the buffet of scientific delights available at the Canada Science and Technology Museum this March. The east-end museum announced a slew of science and technology-based activities beyond the mid-March Break which include building skills, astronomy, stargazing and a new 3-D experience called Curator’s Corner: The World in 3-D. According to the museum, the new exhibit will have technology-based objects on display that can be observed, measured and reproduced. During March Break, the museum will offer patrons the opportunity to test a catapult or construct a structure that can withstand the power of wind.
A magic show and storytelling is also available. March Break activities are currently underway, and will run until March 16. The museum will also offer a family astronomy workshop, called Ancient Zodiac Mysteries, on March 21 at 7 p.m. The event will take place in the museum’s inflatable planetarium, and children from six to 12 year-old can make their own zodiac artwork, learning the world of astronomy along the way. Registration is required at sciencetech.technomuses.ca. At the end of the month, the museum will host Earth Hour Stargazing on March 29 at 8 p.m. Participants will have the chance to gaze the sky with various telescopes including the 15-inch refracting telescope at the Helen Sawyer Hogg Observatory. All presentations will take place outside. For a full list of the museum’s activities visit technomuses.ca.

Letâ€™s make our changing neighbourhoods work for everyone
he people we used to call yuppies (young urban professionals) have been the salvation of many cities. They have revitalized older neighbourhoods. With their buying power and political activism they have demanded and got better restaurants and stores, improved schools and daycare facilities for their children. But there is a downside too, as some cities have begun to notice. As neighbourhoods become revitalized, property values go up, and along with them, property taxes. As the trendy stores and restaurants move into the neighbourhood shopping areas, rents go up too. All of a sudden, there is this wonderful neighbourhood and only the well-to-do can afford to live in it. But of course there are people who are not well-to-do living there. These are the people who lived there before it was fashionable to do so, when it was possible for a person of modest means to own a home in the neighbourhood. These are the people who had family-owned stores on the now-fashionable street. Unless these people get help, the locally owned stores disappear, the modest houses are sold and torn down to make room for much larger ones with three-car garages. The neighbourhood has been revitalized, but its character has been destroyed.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town A recent New York Times story details this process in several U.S. cities, such as Philadelphia, Boston, Washington and Pittsburgh, where so-called gentrification has threatened homeowners from the working- and lowermiddle classes. A common solution has been to freeze or lower property taxes for long-time homeowners, many of whom suffered through years of declining property values and perhaps high crime in the years before the gentrifiers arrived. Officials in those cities are aware that tax dollars have been spent on making their cities attractive to young professionals -- those dog parks, bike paths and soccer fields cost money. Often tax breaks were given to condo developers. So it seems a matter of simple fairness to make sure that long-time residents of more
