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 city’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. “This densely populated area lacks the same access as

other parts of the city,� Euphrasie Emedi, who works at the health centre, told the city’s finance committee on March 4. “This area would be a very, very good opportunity for residents in that area to access green space and community gardens.� Deans hasn’t thrown her support behind the park idea yet – she said she wants to hear what the community would prefer to see at the site. “This land provides an opportunity not to be missed,� 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 city’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 O’Connor said that day of reckoning day will have to wait until the city manager conducts an internal review of what went wrong.

“The city has to do a thorough review to see if there were obligations breached,� O’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

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.

‘Lot of blame to go around’: mayor Continued from page 1

O’Connor couldn’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. “We apologize to council for the result or lack of result that took place,� he said, calling the issue a “major embarrassment for the city. “Management is responsible for the management of this project and the failure of this project to date.� Mayor Jim Watson also said he wants to get to learn what went wrong. “There is a lot of blame to go around,� he said. “There 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. “We’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. “I 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 “internal workload issuesâ€? with the staff on the project. That delay shrunk the construction time to four months, which city staff didn’t rethink despite being told by construction contractors that the deadline was “totally unrealistic.â€? “We could have ďŹ xed this before shovels went into the ground,â€? said Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli.

McRae pressed Newell on why he hadn’t visited the high-proďŹ le construction site until after problems were identiďŹ ed by councillors in the fall of 2011. “This is exactly part of the culture I want Schepers to comment on,â€? McRae said. “I support them, the public service, (but) there are so many levels of bureaucracy in this place.â€? Newell said it wasn’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 - Ontario’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 Ontario’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. “As 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 province’s 21 publicly funded universities. “The transformation of primary care has been dramatic and, as a result, many more Ontario patients have access to the care they need.â€? Today, Ontario’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. “We have partnered with more than 155 communities throughout Ontario,� 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. “As 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. That’s a huge advance in primary care that also saves many unnecessary visits to emergency rooms.� Ontario’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 sabine.gibbins@metroland.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.

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.

Staff

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.

Let’s make our changing neighbourhoods work for everyone

T

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

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, March 13, 2014

modest means are not unduly penalized. At the same time, there is some political risk in doing so, since the revitalization process, with its march of new condos, is a continuing source of new tax dollars. A city politician who will forgo a source of revenue is a rare bird, so it’s clear that a crisis of sorts is in sight. Obviously the residents of American cities, because of the 2008 mortgage crisis, are in more of a bind than Canadians, but you only need to walk around a Canadian city to see that the problem applies to us too. The Glebe might have been the first neighbourhood to become (a) really nice, and then (b) unaffordable. Westboro has obviously followed and Hintonburg is next. What has happened on the residential level has been matched in the retail sector. Neighbourhood store after neighbourhood store has succumbed to increased taxes or increased rents. Too often the replacement has been a chain. Too often a hardware or grocery store has been replaced by a coffee shop or a fitness centre. The result: more power to the car culture that forces us to drive every time we need some little thing. Since our city government, like other city governments, says it wants to reduce the impact of the car culture, our city, like other cities,

should be trying to find ways to keep small stores in business, just as it should find ways to keep lower-middle class and working people in their homes. Failing some remedial action, the look of the future is there already for us to see: pleasant but unaffordable urban neighbourhoods surrounded by suburbs clustered around giant shopping centres, the two linked by a clogged river of cars. Gentrification, along with intensification, has been seen as the salvation of our cities. Well managed, it probably can be. But cities need to be for everyone.

Breast or bottle fed, the kids are going to be OK

A

new study published in the Social Science & Medicine journal suggests there may not be much difference in long-term outcomes for babies whether they are breastfed or bottle-fed. The research, led by Ohio University sociology assistant professor Cynthia Colen has been met with skepticism by breastfeeding advocates. Bottle feeding proponents, on the other hand, are circulating it as evidence that cuts through the overblown criticism of formula feeding. Colen’s study initially did comparisons seen elsewhere, although her sample was larger than usual – around 8,000 – and the age range greater. She examined children between the ages of 4 and 14. Overall, Colen found breastfed children performed better in 10 of 11 health indicators, including BMI, obesity, asthma, various intelligence measures, hyperactivity and attachment. But then she did something different. Colen nearly perfectly controlled for race, income and age by comparing children within the same family, which made up 25 per cent of her original sample. These “discordant sibling pairs” were children with the same mother,

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse where one was bottle-fed and the other nourished at the breast. “When the team restricted the sample to siblings who were fed differently within the same families, the scores showing breast-feeding’s positive effects on 10 of the 11 measures for child health and well-being were not statistically significant,” reported Medical News Today. In fact, the only difference was that breastfed children were more susceptible to asthma than their bottle-fed siblings. Yes, you read that correctly. The only statistical difference was a disadvantage to breastfed babies. This study comes at a time when “breast is best” hyperbole has reached new heights. Countries as disparate as The United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom are seeking to “enforce” breastfeeding culture. The former is considering a law that would make two years of breastfeeding mandatory, the latter

a pilot program that would pay women in low income groups the equivalent of $365 if they breastfeed to six months. This is despite the fact that 81 per cent of British women in all income groups already breastfeed their babies. Thus, the study comes as a breath of fresh air. For those of us who want a choice in how to safely feed our babies, while maintaining a career and doing other stuff that feminists do, you know, besides being tethered by the nipple, it’s nice to have some affirmation that we’re making OK choices. In a few years, my own family would make a great case for Colen: I breastfed all children from birth ranging from three weeks to 5.5 months. (That elusive six month minimum). All, God bless them,

Aviation museum to be grounded for renovations

have been extremely healthy – no ear infections, no learning delays, no major vomiting viruses. The only one that now has issues with allergies and food sensitivities? The middle child – the one that was breastfed the longest. My reasons for choosing how to feed my babies are highly personal. So it is for all women. What sickens me is the expectation that women should breastfeed, regardless of whether or not it works or whether or not they want to. The benefits of breastfeeding have been so overstated that one would imagine all the world’s problems would be solved if we could just domesticate women and force them to breastfeed for increasingly longer amounts of time. The worst is the suggestion that breastfeeding is so economical that

women would be financially better off as a result of that choice. Slate blogger Jessica Grose points to a poignant Hanna Rosin quote featured in The Atlantic in 2009: “When people say that breast-feeding is ‘free,’ I want to hit them with a two-by-four. It’s only free if a woman’s time is worth nothing.” Exactly. And now we have a study that confirms that bottle feeding can be just as healthy as breastfeeding. So kudos to Colen. Because at the end of the day, as the study’s author notes, we should be spending a lot less time dictating to women how to feed their babies and a lot more time introducing social policies, like affordable housing and childcare, that are going to give them – and their children – real choice for the future.

News - The Canada Aviation and Space Museum will temporary close for remodeling for a couple of weeks in the early spring. The museum will close from March 17 to 21 and April 22 to 25 to make changes to the main exhibition, including adding new features and elements for a focus on the centennial of the First World War. “The (museum) will feature a new exhibition with aircraft that have never before been on display to commemorate this event,” said Stephen Quick,

the museum director. “As we enter into a period of significant milestones and commemorations, we take our responsibility to ‘never forget’ very seriously.” According to the museum, the remodelling will include adding more aircrafts of that era from the museum’s current collection as well as showcased important innovations and aircraft transformations to help characterize the period. Recently the museum announced the last remaining Hawker Typhoon, an aircraft which helped lead air operations over Normandy 70 years ago, will also be on display.

Coalition calls for more research into warming To the editor,

Your report on the Feb. 5 Ecology Ottawa event, The Future of Snow and Skiing in a Warming World, held at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, contains information to which I would like to reply: 1 – The International Climate Science Coalition asserts that the causes of climate change are not properly understood due to the immature nature of the science. We “deny” nothing. We say that human activity causes climate change by land use change, urban heat island effect, and emissions of greenhouse gases. However, we doubt that rising GHG is causing dangerous

climate change either now or in the foreseeable future. ICSC advocates increased funding for research so that someday we may be able to better predict future climate change, however caused. We also advocate helping vulnerable populations prepare for climate change and extreme weather. Of the $1 billion a day spent across the world on climate finance in 2012, only six per cent of it went to adaptation. The rest went to trying to stop what might happen decades in the future. We regard this as immoral, effectively valuing the lives of people yet to be born more than those suffering today. 2 – The museum’s media relations representative was wrong to

say that I asked them cancel the event. I left it up to the museum to decide what course of action to take in response to my complaint concerning the biased nature of the meeting. I have asked the museum to send a letter to the editor correcting their error but they have not responded. 3 – ICSC is not a lobby organization and, unlike the David Suzuki Foundation which had nine registered lobbyists active in the past year, I have never engaged in lobbying. Until the public better understand climate science, lobbying is pointless. Consequently, ICSC focuses on public education. 4 – I did not prompt the audi-

ence to misbehave. My question about the exclusion of scientists from the panel who did not support the climate scare was measured and polite. If anyone prompted bad behaviour, it was the Ecology Ottawa meeting chair who indirectly encouraged the audience to engage in bully-boy behaviour against me for daring to question their belief that skiing is endangered due to global warming, a phenomenon that stopped 17 years ago. Indeed, winter snow cover in the northern hemisphere has increased over the past half-century. Tom Harris executive director International Climate Science Coalition

It establishes new rules for the location of driveways in the outer suburban area (being generally the area between the inner boundary of the Greenbelt and the boundary between the urban and rural area, including Barrhaven, Stittsville, Orleans, Kanata and Riverside South, but excluding Blackburn Hamlet and Bell’s Corners.) It removes, in the outer suburban area, the prohibition on extending driveways in front of the front wall of the residential use building. Such extensions are limited to 1.8m in width and must be finished in alternatives to asphalt or monolithic concrete. It also clarifies that driveways are permitted to be extended into the extension of the side yard into the front yard. The amendment includes a technical amendment to Sections 107 and 109 of the Zoning By-law to make these sections clearer and easier to understand and use by the general public.

Diane Deans Councillor/Conseillère Quartier Gloucester-Southgate Ward

Update on the Airport Parkway Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge Project I would like to share the latest information with you on the Airport Parkway Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge Project. City Council recently directed the City Manager to undertake a Third-Party Review of the Airport Parkway Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge project, which was conducted by SEG Management Inc. The direction given to SEG was to look at the City’s role in the project and their report was presented to the Finance and Economic Development Committee (FEDC) on March 4th. It is now clear that adequate project management oversight was absent and I am very disappointed that the City has faced such signiďŹ cant delays and ďŹ nancial setbacks on this project.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

At FEDC I moved a motion, to go in camera in order to have immediate discussions surrounding accountability for this project. Unfortunately, the motion was not supported by the majority of my colleagues. I believe that Council has a responsibility to ensure that taxpayers receive accountability in a forthright and timely fashion. I will continue to investigate any and all options to seek a judicious outcome on behalf of the taxpayers of Ottawa. In addition, the City will continue to actively pursue legal action to seek to recover past costs and damages incurred. The City’s Legal Department has the full backing of City Council and the City Manager to vigorously pursue the recovery of these losses. Annual International Women’s Day Breakfast

Cake: In a large bowl, beat egg yolks using an electric mixer on high speed for two minutes. Add 90 ml (6 tbsp) of the sugar, 15 ml (1 tbsp) at a time, beating until thick, creamy and pale yellow --

about five to seven minutes. Set the mixture aside. In a glass or metal bowl, with clean beaters, beat the egg whites until foamy, then beat in the cream of tartar until the mixture is frothy. Add the remaining sugar, 15 ml (1 tbsp) at a time, beating until stiff peaks form -- about three to five minutes. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the yolks.

Bake in centre of 160 C (325 F) oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean. When it’s done, turn the pan upside down and let hang on legs attached to pan, or on a bottle, until it’s completely cooled. Remove from the pan. Honey-glazed apples: In large skillet on medium heat, melt the butter. Cook the apples, stirring occasionally, for two minutes. Stir in the honey to coat the apples and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to mediumlow and cook for three to five minutes or until apples are slightly softened and glazed. (If you prefer softer apples, cook for three to five minutes longer). Pour the apples into a heat-proof dish, cover and set aside for up to 4 hours. Cut the cake into eight equal slices and spoon the honeyglazed apples over each slice. Top each with 15 ml (one tbsp) of apple butter. Foodland Ontario

BRIDGING COMMUNITIES Ward 22 Update

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean

New Cell Tower to Improve Coverage Reliability in Riverside South My office has been advised of a proposal from Telus Telecommunications for a new cell tower to be constructed adjacent to the fire station on Earl Armstrong Road in the Riverside South community (910 Earl Armstrong Road). This application is in response to the demand that Telus has received to improve wireless communications coverage for residents in the area. I have heard from a number of residents of the sometimes poor cell phone and wireless communication coverage in the community. This is positive news for residents in the area given the growing trend towards cell phone use instead of traditional home phones. Many residents rely on wireless communications every day to enhance their personal security and safety as well as business use. The proposal consists of constructing a 12’x12’ telecommunication shelter and monopole in the rear corner of the property at the fire station in Riverside South. The equipment will be fenced and landscaped. There is a need to provide a central location as to serve the broad and growing area and the operators will also require the necessary maintenance access. The installation will also provide the opportunity in the future for a separate wireless communications provider (eg. Bell or Rogers) to piggyback their infrastructure on the same tower to help improve their service reliability. A complete copy of the proposal can be found at www. stevedesroches.ca. Public Meeting for Subdivision Application for Part of 4650 Spratt Road The City’s Planning Department is hosting a public meeting for a subdivision application for 4650 Spratt Road on March 27 from 7-8:30pm at the Rideauview Community Centre, 4310 Shoreline Drive. The property is located south of Earl Armstrong Road, east of River Road and west of Spratt Road. The parcel is surrounded by vacant undeveloped lands to the east, south and west. The lands to the north have already been registered as a plan of subdivision and are currently being developed. The applicant is proposing to develop a fully serviced urban subdivision consisting of 40 townhouses. Ontario Stone, Sand and Gravel Association As Deputy Mayor, I recently had the honour to present the City’s greetings at the Ontario Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (OSSGA) annual general meeting. The City of Ottawa is undergoing the largest infrastructure investment in our history and is, by tonnage, the top aggregate producing municipality in Ontario. Our strong relationship with the aggregate industry and our local supply of aggregate are essential ingredients in getting local roads, bridges and transit infrastructure completed. The aggregate industry plays a key role in the City given the investments that are made each year to build and renew infrastructure. It was great to meet with the members and executive of the OSSGA and I look forward to continued advancements in the City’s involvement in working with this industry.

Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge Update Work is ongoing on the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge. I would encourage residents to visit my website at www. SteveDesroches.ca for regular updates and photos of the progress.

A new option for signed pedestrian crosswalks being considered by the provincial Ministry of Transportation would allow the city to install more crossings, councillors say. The option under consideration would cost less than what’s currently allowed, which involves expensive traffic signals or flashing lights.

New crosswalk option encourages councillor Less expensive mid-block crossing being considered by province Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A new style of pedestrian crossing the province is creating will be a boon for safety in Ottawa, city councillors say. The new type of pedestrian crossing facility is being developed by the Ministry of Transportation and will likely be signed off on by the summer, said Phil Landry, manager of traffic management for the city. Once it’s included in the regulations for implementing the Highway Traffic Act, the new rules would allow for a mid-block crossing that uses signs to give priority to pedestrians, Landry said. That’s a cheaper option to give pedestrians a way to cross to the other side of the road, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. The city’s hands have been tied in that regard because the only current option used in Ottawa a fully signalized mid-block crossing that can cost $100,000 to $150,000 or a pedestrian crossover, which involves installing flashing lights to alert motorists to the crossing at a cost of approximately $70,000. That pedestrian

crossover was rejected by the city in 1991, when Ottawa stopped using that type of crossing because it was deemed unsafe. Many other Ontario municipalities have come to the same conclusion, according to a city staff report. “That would be far safer to do a bunch across the city than putting the money into one or two places,” Wilkinson said. “I would like to see more places protected.” Councillors were also relieved to hear the updated MTO regulations would also address safer pedestrian crossings at roundabouts and right-turn lanes. BEAUSOLEIL/CHAPEL

The updated guidelines could also be good news for Sandy Hill and Lowertown residents at odds over the opening of an intersection at Beausoleil Drive and Chapel Street. The dead end at Chapel 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. But some Sandy Hill and Lowertown residents worried the temporary solution of opening the intersection to traffic in order to be able to create a pedestrian crossing with the stop sign would lead to cut-through vehicle traffic on residential streets. The solution reached in consultation with the community will see the intersection open to bicycles only as early as later this spring. That will meet the provincial requirements for an intersection and still allow the stop sign and crosswalk to remain. But that could change if the new provincial regulations allow for a more appropriate pedestrian crossing, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. He said city staff are telling him the changes proposed by the MTO might be the best solution for the Lowertown intersection. “We’ll have to wait and see what the outcome is,” he said. Even if the plans for Beausoleil/Chapel don’t change as a result of the new regulations, Fleury said a new option for pedestrian crossings would be beneficial to look at using at other sites in his ward.

Sweet fundraiser Plates of chocolate treats await the hundreds of chocolate lovers at Carefor Chocolate Competition on March 8. Celebrating its 10th year, the annual fundraiser aims to raise $33,000 so people living with dementia can have access to vital programs in the city. Bakeries and catering companies from across the city participated in the competition, offering special chocolatey desserts. Aside from official judgment from a panel of celebrity chefs and foodies, the rest of the attendees help choose the People’s Choice Award, marking down points for taste and originality.

Community safety, including traffic safety, continues to be a top priority of mine. In response to community concerns about speeding, in addition to Police enforcement, speed boards are available for exclusive deployment throughout our Ward. While the Ottawa Police Service and I know about some of the speeding “hot spots”, if you would like City Traffic engineering staff to assess your street for the use of a speed board, please give my office a call.

Funding for new schools announced by province Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Seven new Ottawa school renovations or builds were approved at an announcement by Education Minister Liz Sandals on March 6 at Broadview Public School. Among them, was a new elementary school in Avalon, which has been working under the name Avalon 2. I’m glad that the need for the school speaks for itself, said John Shea, the Orléans public board trustee. Several parents, such as Wally Peters, who has been helping push for a new Avalon school, attended the announcement. He said he was excited for the new community project, which will benefit his son, who is in Grade 4. Right now, students at Avalon are crammed into portables to accommodate an overflow. The Orléans MPP, Phil McNeely, attended to announce the Orléans funding along with Sandals for the Orléans school. It will hopefully open in September 2015. Avalon was the board’s top priority, until October. During an Oct. 22 board of trustees meeting, Avalon 2 was bumped from first to seventh place on the

public board’s priorities list. The switch moved the new Half Moon Bay elementary school in Barrhaven to the first spot. After that meeting, Shea said he was hopeful the ministry would still consider Avalon 2 the top priority based on the business plan. Funding is given out based on the strength of each project’s business plan, Education Minister Liz Sandals said. “So what that tells you is that the business case put forward by Avalon may have been stronger than some of the other business cases,” Sandals said. “It’s not unusual that when the ministry staff do the scoring and evaluation of the business cases that they will come up with a different priority order than the board has.” She said the board’s priority list comes into play if several similar projects scored comparably on the business cases. In this case, Avalon’s business plan was strong enough for the board to approve funding over the board’s third priority, a West Carleton Secondary School addition. BROADVIEW; HALF MOON BAY APPROVED

Two other public board projects were also approve: a rebuild of

Broadview Public School and a new elementary school in Barrhaven, in Half Moon Bay. Many parents and students from Broadview stayed after school for the March 6 late afternoon announcement, and broke out in cheers when the rebuild was announced. Students will stay in the current school while the new school is built, said Stephanie Craze, the chair of Broadview’s parent council.She said the school is long overdue for a rebuild. HARD WORK

“This team worked tirelessly over the past three years and more to fight for the needs of our kids,” said Craze, of the people who worked on the Broadview rebuild application. “Thanks to our kids, who were patient with us and have been so understanding when we missed the soccer games and dance rehearsals at dinner time to attend board meetings, write business cases or meet on a Sunday to discuss strategy.” The second brand new public elementary school will be in Barrhaven, in the growing Half Moon Bay community. “I’m ecstatic about the announcement,” said public board trustee Donna Blackburn. “Half Moon Bay

was the top priority.” The Half Moon Bay Community Association members have said they expect the suburb to almost double in population by 2016, creating demand for a new school. FRENCH EDUCATION IN DEMAND

The three other boards that received funding were also happy to see projects moving forward. “There’s some good news for every board,” Sandals said. Pierre-Savard French Catholic high school in Barrhaven is overcrowded, meaning the dreaded portables get heavy use. “We’re thrilled to have the approval of 12 new classrooms; 250 spots for kids,” said Chad Mariage, Barrhaven trustee for the French Catholic Board. “It’s going to solve a lot of the issues going forward. We’re looking at breaking ground in the spring of 2015. We’re very excited.” South Ottawa’s lone funding announcement went to Sainte-Geneviève French Catholic elementary school in Alta Vista. The school will tear down parts of the school built 60 years ago. “The first part of the school was built in the 1950s, and the second in the 1960s, so we’re really tearing

down part of the school and building new classrooms,” said Denis Poirier, the French Catholic board chair. “Long overdue and we’re happy, so today’s a good day.” Kanata will also see the French boards growing, as the public board will add to on the Kanata French public elementary school in Morgan’s Grant. “We’ve been living in portable classrooms for the past several years, so the students will now be in more standardized classrooms,” said Stephane Vachon, superintendent of education for the French public board. PROJECTS APPROVED:

• Addition to the Kanata French public elementary school in Morgan’s Grant • Addition to Pierre-Savard French Catholic high school in Barrhaven • Major retrofit and addition at Sainte-Geneviève French Catholic elementary school in Alta Vista • New public elementary school in Half Moon Bay in Barrhaven • Rebuild of Broadview Public School in west Ottawa • New elementary school, Avalon 2, in Orléans • New Catholic elementary school in Barrhaven

Churches could begin offering refuge for homeless they are worth taking care of and they are important.â€? Neighbouring businesses were “leeryâ€? at first, Pino said, but the ministry has not received any reports of criminal activity or complaints. “They gave us a chance ‌ Now they see that it can work,â€? he said.

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa’s places of worship could soon become sanctuaries for the homeless. The city is looking at allowing churches, synagogues and other places of worship to operate temporary shelters and provide meals and overnight shelter for people who don’t have anywhere else to spend the night. In Toronto and other Canadian cities, it’s known as Out of the Cold – a rotating series of temporary shelters offered by groups who co-ordinate the use of space in places of worship. Now, Ottawa is looking at allowing something similar in its zoning bylaw. There are 116 places of worship in the city’s urban area and the study will look at different zoning schemes for allowing them to operate temporary overnight shelters. The program is badly needed in Ottawa, especially for youth, said Jason Pino, director of Restoring Hope Ministries. The group has quietly been offering a small, six-bed overnight shelter for youth in the basement of the First Baptist Church in Centretown for more than a year.

CITY STUDY

SUBMITTED

A year ago, the city provided Restoring Hope Ministries with a temporary exemption to allow it to operate this shelter at Centretown’s First Baptist Church once a week. Now Ottawa is looking at changing bylaws to allow other places of worship to do the same. After getting a one-year exemption from the city, Restoring Hope recently got the OK to make the once-a-week shelter permanent and expand to 10 beds, Pino said. He was working as a youth outreach worker when he had the idea to start up the shelter. “I would be connecting with these kids and they wouldn’t have a place to sleep for the night,� Pino said. There are two youth shelters

in Ottawa – one for men and one for women – and they’re constantly full, Pino said. He would ask youth where they planned to spend the night. If they couldn’t crash on a friend’s couch, they’d make their way to a parking garage, some bushes in a park or under a bridge. Over the past year, 35 to 40 of those youth have had a warm bed to sleep in – at least on Fridays. If youth stay with

Restoring Hope more than once, they tend to keep coming for about two months, Pino said. Over that time, he can see a profound change in many of them. “We call ourselves Restoring Hope – the idea being that if you don’t have hope, you stop caring about yourself and you stop caring about the situations you put yourself in,� Pino said. “We reinforce to them they are worth the effort,

Beth Desmarais is the city planner charged with studying whether it can work on a broader basis in other places of worship. She said staff felt the Restoring Hope program was a good idea and wanted to study whether it should be expanded. “If we’re going to allow it in one church basement, why not come out with any regulation to allow it in any church?� Desmarais said. “You may as well not do it as a band-aid approach.� A consultant has been contacting local churches while gathering background research for the study, and “more and more� places of worship are approaching the city to express their interest in offering the service after they find out about it, Desmarais said. Ottawa hasn’t yet drafted a strategy for how the program

would work here. The study will look at parameters including a cap on the number of beds and how to ensure the shelters operate on a temporary or occasional basis – not every night, Desmarais said. Pino said his program is fortunate because there are no residences near the church at Elgin Street and Laurier Avenue and most of the officeworker oriented businesses are closed by the time the shelter opens at 9 p.m. on Fridays. But places of worship in other areas might face different circumstances and challenges, he said. The planning committee is expected to review Desmarais’ forthcoming recommendation on April 8. Members of the public can submit comments to elizabeth. desmarais@ottawa.ca. If the planning committee and city council were to adopt any changes, Desmarais said it would then be up to volunteer groups and congregations to set up a program to offer the shelters on a rotating basis in a number of places of worship. Restoring Hope Ministries is looking for volunteers willing to staff the overnight shelter and connect and support youth. Visit restoringhope.ca for information.

Murals coming to Ottawa streets hall – they might also qualify for a $2,500 grant. The project was dreamed up by the city’s new Neighbourhood Connection ofďŹ ce, said Andrea Flowers, who is in charge of Paint the Pavement. “It was us looking at the inspiration fun, beautiful projects that were happening elsewhere,â€? she said.

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is encouraging community groups to take paint to the pavement. The city hasn’t granted permission for murals to be painted on road surfaces in the past, but that’s changing this spring. Not only can groups get the thumbs up from city

New to Ottawa Pet Cemetery & Crematorium Did you know that since the closing of “Ye Old Shep“ in 2008 all pets that pass away in Ottawa are sent to Pembroke, Guelph or Rigaud, P.Q.? Resting Paws Cemetery & Crematorium Inc. is the first full service pet aftercare centre in the Ottawa Region. Locally owned and operated by Patrick & Sabine Couture.

The projects are aimed at encouraging community building, resident engagement and beautiďŹ cation, she said. Some believe the design also make roads safer by slowing down motorists. The only known street painting in Ottawa before now is a pansy that residents of Pansy Avenue have painted on their street as far back as 1997. The “guerillaâ€? project was led by City Repair Ottawa, which at the time was modeled after a Portland, Ore. group of the same name, Flowers said. The city has received interest from about a dozen communities who want to paint street murals, Flowers said. Adorning a street isn’t as easy as heading to the hardware store for a bucket of paint. The application process, which closes April 1, requires groups to jump through a number of hoops. Information can be found by searching for “Neighbourhood Connection OfďŹ ceâ€? on ottawa.ca. First and foremost, the proposed location must be on a quiet residential street

HENDRIX (A164942)

that doesn’t have a bus route. That means a street that sees fewer than 2,500 vehicles pass through in any given 24hour period. For that reason, Flowers suggests each community propose up to three possible streets, in case the city’s review ďŹ nds that one of the suggested roadways is too busy. The reason for limiting the paintings to calmer streets is to reduce the amount of wear and tear the murals will have to endure. The chosen street also can’t be scheduled for any upgrades that would tear up the pavement before 2015. The city is encouraging groups to work with local artists to develop the designs, Flowers said, which is one of the reasons the grants were increased from $1,000 to $2,500 for each community. The proposed design can’t cause driver confusion or imply any visual narrowing of the road or a tromp d’oeil effect, Flowers said. It also can’t include any words or logos, as well as images that evoke trafďŹ c symbols, as that could cause safety concerns.

SUBMITTED/CITY OF OTTAWA

This example of a street mural in another city is what could be coming to Ottawa thanks to a new Paint the Pavement city grant. Locations must be supported by the community. That includes signed letters from all of the property owners whose lots would touch the painting, as well as 66 per cent support of the neighbours living within a block of the location. A letter of support from the ward councillor is also required. That support can be demonstrated after the application period closes, but

at least one month before the date of painting. Three street mural proposals will be chosen next month. Winning projects must use trafďŹ c paint for the murals, which will increase traction and reectivity and withstand wear and tear. Groups will also have to apply for a special events permit from the city in order to close the street down for painting, Flowers said.

Many people feel frustrated with their dog’s behaviour when their furry friends frolic all over the furniture, greet guests by jumping up at them, or drag their owner down the street on walks. It’s important to remember that having a well-behaved four-legged family member takes time and work from owners too! It’s an unfortunate reality that most puppies and dogs surrendered to shelters are animals that have not had obedience training. Dog obedience

Fury players visit schools Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

Sports - Returning to his old high school wasn’t a big deal for Chad Bush, who has regularly trained at Louis Riel this past year. But Feb. 28 was the first day he got to come back as a professional player, on an official visit with the Ottawa Fury FC to the school. Bush attended Louis Riel for grades 9 and 10 and took part in their special sport study program. “I saw him come in with a big smile and I’m like, ‘This is what it’s all about’, said JoĂŠ Fournier, the athletic director at Louis Riel. “It’s nice for me, but it’s nicer for our kids. When we put this program together nine years ago, it was exactly for that: so players like Chad can go on and live their dreams. Several Fury FC players, along with head coach Marc Dos Santos, spoke with the school’s sport study soccer players and did a hands on training clinic.

Haydn Bechthold, a Grade 10 student, said he was enjoying the clinic, and knew who several of the players were from playing the FIFA soccer video game, where they are characters. He was also excited to see Bush, who he had played soccer with before at Louis Riel, get signed. “At the start of the year, he trained with us, so it’s weird to see him here as a pro player,� he said. “He was just Chad before, now he’s a big star.� See PRO, page 32

Fournier said it helps students see what they’re working for when a former player comes back having achieved something big. “There’s your player, standing right there, who trained on this field every day,� he said. HENRY LARSEN GETS VISIT

Two Fury FC players also did a different elementary school visit early in the day on Feb. 28. Both Marcel DeBellis and Andres Fresenga spoke at Henry Larsen Elementary School. Students heard about what exactly the Fury team is, and learned cheers for going to any soccer games. DeBellis told the children that he’d been playing soccer since he was about 4-yearsold, even younger than the students he was talking to were. “We didn’t have the opportunity kids have now, where there are five Canadian professional teams,� DeBellis said. “We had to cheer for German teams, British teams.�

The Ottawa Fury’s Chad Bush works with students from Louis-Riel high school on Feb. 28. Both DeBellis and Fresenga moved away from home as teenagers to pursue their soccer dreams, and told the kids that it took a lot of hard work – “and listening to your parents�, Fresenga said. A couple volunteers took part in some soccer demonstrations about teamwork alongside the players. “I loved it,� said Abigail Morgan, 7, who took part in the demonstration. “We learned about the soccer people, and we learned how to get a goal with other people.� DeBellis said getting the

kids excited about Fury soccer will hopefully help attendance in the team’s inaugural season. Each of the kids took home an autographed schedule by the two Fury players. “Stuff like this helps,� he said. “To get them excited and go home and talk to their parents about it.� The Fury FC professional team kicks off with their first home game against Minnesota United FC on April 19 at Carleton University. They switch over to TD Place at Lansdowne Park on July 20 versus the New York Cosmos.

Still many treats to be had MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories minutes, and we would head off to bed with sugar-filled stomachs and a feeling of complete joy. Audrey became an expert at making fudge. No one could talk to her when she was at the job. I would sit at the table and listen to her slap the big wood spoon around the pot which was inside another pot of cold water. It had to be just the right consistency before she poured it into a buttered pie plate and left to chill. When she wasn’t looking, I would go out to the summer kitchen where the pie plate of

and when Mother asked, “Who would like a piece of oven toast?” we all squealed with anticipation. Only Mother could turn out oven toast the way I like it. She would lay out slices of thick homemade bread on the bake table, lavish butter on both sides, put a wire rack over a couple deep pie plates, put the bread in rows on the rack, plug in another block of wood into the stove, and put everything into the hot oven. The butter-saturated bread would crisp to a light golden brown, and I thought it was the most delicious treat Mother ever invented, breaking the slices into pieces and gobbling it up with butter running down my fingers. The trick, Mother said, was not to take it out of the oven until it was crisp, but not letting it brown. She knew just how to manage it all in right order, and there wasn’t, in my mind, a more delicious before-bed treat than oven toast. There always seemed to be lots of home-made bread at our house. Mother baked once or twice a week, and we five kids were forever fighting over who got the crusts at either end of the loaf. It got to the point where Mother had us draw straws for this treat. And a special bedtime treat was a thick slice of homemade bread, buttered of course, and then spread with a layer of brown sugar with cinnamon sprinkled on top. I have no idea why she did it, but Mother always cut the slices into little squares before piling them on a dinner plate in the middle of the table, moving the sugar bowl and spoon holder to make room. The whole pile would vanish in

fudge was sitting, and press my finger into it, just to make sure it was hardening. If Audrey noticed the finger marks, she said nothing. That night, when we were sitting around the old pine table, each engrossed in their own activity, Audrey would cut the fudge into little squares, and dole them out like they were chunks of gold. Once the maple syrup season started, and Mother retrieved a pot of sap from the big flat pan boiling in the bush, simmering it down to a right thickness, we had “taffy on snow,” a special treat on a Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. Mother of course, made sure the snow brought in from outside was nowhere near the barn yard, and well away from the house. Those long-ago days of the Depression years were years of the most simple pleasures, and treats free of an outlay of money, and long before cholesterol was part of our vocabulary.

The Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa is a charitable organisation whose objective is to raise funds for essential programs that are not covered by the government. These programs assist children and youth in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa. The Dare to Dream bursary program is an important program in which the Foundation offers its support. This Program provides funds to young adults who are in care, or were formerly in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa, to assist with their postsecondary education tuition. The bursary program provides young adults the opportunity to pursue their life goals. At the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa, we believe that a lack of funds should not stand in the way of educational aspirations for young adults who have already faced far too many obstacles. Help make a difference. Visit www.cafott.ca and click DONATE NOW. Make a one-time donation, or become a monthly donor. Either way, your donation will make a difference that will last a lifetime.

oodness knows we were reminded often enough that there was a Depression on. Just ask for something as simple as a pair of white stockings, or a new hair ribbon, and you were told once again of the scarcity of money. “There is no money for such frivolities,” we were told. And just as often were we told, “Eat every last scrap on your plate. If you don’t, you’re taking it right out of the mouth of a starving Armenian.” I had no idea who the starving Armenians were, but I was pretty sure they lived in Arnprior. Yes, wasting food was a sin, and if it cost money and wasn’t absolutely necessary, your chances of getting what you asked for were pretty slim indeed. Yet we had what I called treats aplenty back in the 1930’s. When the nights were bitterly cold, with the wind howling outside, rattling the windows, Mother could always come up with something that took the chill out of the old log house. Often it was a popper full of corn, laced with a jug of melted butter. Sometimes it was a treat that my sister Audrey said took the place of a good dose of Epsom salts, but to me it was delicious. Had I stopped to think about it, it wasn’t something handed out willy-nilly -- in fact, we only got it in the dead of winter. It was a big glass of molasses, water and a heaping tablespoon of baking soda. It fizzed up, often pouring out of the glass, and I considered it a real treat, which pleased Mother. It was never handed out on a school night, of course, because the result of this special treat was many trips to the outhouse. Audrey called it “our winter clean out,” but to me, it was a treat. Then there was oven toast. How I loved oven toast. It didn’t come out looking like the toast made on top of the stove, over hot coals. Every one of us considered it a special treat,
