EMC news – Four of Ottawa’s urban schools are using innovative programs to increase attendance and bridge language gaps. Samuel-Genest Catholic, Notre Dame High, Rideau High and Ridgemont High schools are defined as high priority, receiving extra funding from the provincial Ministry of Education for programs like a breakfast club and afterschool programming. The funding is meant to improve the quality of education in and out of the classroom – from

forging better links with parents to improve attendance, to increasing the community police officer’s presence in the school to reduce crime and make students more comfortable with police. Representatives from the four schools came together on April 25 to discuss some of the challenges they face and solutions they deal with on a day-to-day basis. “When we think of success, it’s a lot different at our schools,” said Geordie Walker, east Ottawa’s Rideau High School principal.

EMC news – Eight-year old Giorgio Manasseri loves blowing bubbles, and dreams of one day being able to see bubble ball-like cars. The Bernard-Grandmaître Catholic elementary student from Riverside South won the Toyota Canada annual art competition, developed to inspire creativity. The contest challenged the youth by asking them, “What should a car be?” It encouraged children to explore their imagination and creativity in designing their “dream car.” “I like blowing bubbles so that is why I decided to paint that,” said Giorgio. “I want a bubble ball car for everyone. It will travel on waterslides in the air through sand and snow and dive in the ocean. My bubble ball car would use sun and moon energy, so we can have fun in it anytime while discovering new and different places on earth or in space.” This was the first year Canadians were eligible to participate in this annual contest. Giorgio’s artwork will represent Canada at the world finals of the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest to compete with semifinalists from 70 other countries. The winners will be provided with an opportunity to participate in an awards ceremony held in Japan, late August. As a Pokemon fan, Giorgio is hopeful he can win and get a chance to visit the Pokemon centre in Tokyo. “I really wish to visit Japan,” he said. The nine Canadian finalists will each receive a seven-inch 8 gigabyte tablet device, and their entries will advance to the world contest winners of the World Contest Giorgio’s mother Corina, who

is also an artist, said his son has a natural ability to observe and draw subjects with a lot of detail. “I wish I could say I taught him everything, but he is so much better than I was at his age,” she said. Contest entries were judged on originality, creativity and relevance to the “dream car” theme. The judging panel included, Sheri Radford, author of the popular Penelope series, Christine Tripp, illustrator of more than 50 children’s books and Sandy Di Felice, Toyota Canada’s director of external affairs. “The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest entries made it clear to me that, not only are there very talented young artists in Canada, they are also a caring and concerned generation,” Tripp said in a statement. “Many of the entries showed vehicles running on alternative energy, were non-polluting and actually function to deliver things, such as food, love and peace to the world.” Seiji Ichii, president and chief executive officer of Toyota Canada said he was impressed by the bold ideas and innovative artwork designed by Canada’s youth. “This was the first year Canadians were eligible to participate in this annual contest, and we are proud of the creative entries that will represent Canada at this global competition,” Ichii said. “This contest has demonstrated that with a little imagination and big dreams, creativity can inspire the future generation of the automotive industry.” For Giorgio, this year has been a good one. He has so far won the Royal Canadian Legion’s coloured art memorial contest twice in a row and designed Ottawa mayor Jim Watson’s Christmas card last year.

Two years ago Ali and his family left the horror behind and came to Canada. Prior to his arrival in Ottawa he had never been to school before. When he arrived at Charles H. Hulse Public School, Ali did have one thing in common with his new friends – his love of soccer. “I could see it in the gym classes that he was very co-ordinated and with a lot of skills,â€? said Riaz Mohammed, the Grade 4 teacher that ďŹ rst discovered Ali’s talent. Ali has now been selected by the Ottawa Fury FC to participate in the prestigious Mondial Pupilles de Plomelin youth tournament. Held in Plomelin, France, the tournament sees teams from all over the world come and compete against each other. For the past few weeks, Ali’s schoolmates, teachers and the community have been fundraising to raise $2,000 towards his trip fund. “We decided to fundraise for him because this is an incredible opportunity for young Ali, who is a talented soccer player and this could be a stepping-stone for his realization of his dreams of playing soccer professionally and to one day represent Canada,â€? said acting principal Marina Saulig. “He is so skilled and talented that we want to do everything to promote his success.â€? Ali’s love of soccer was encouraged by his parents and his older cousin. He said that sometimes he used the sport to block out the ugliness of the refugee camp. “I am excited to go to France. I love the game and I want to be a professional soccer player when I grow up,â€? said Ali. After observing the kind of talent that youngster had, his teacher felt that if Ali could succeed at soccer it would give him the conďŹ dence to succeed in the classroom. Mohammed contacted the Ottawa Fury Football Club to see if they would give him a try out. Not only did Ali make the team he has

Put Your Best Foot Forward:

Plan, Walk, Play, Enjoy May is Physical Activity Month and there is no better time to lace up your sneakers and put your best foot forward. Ottawa Public Health is sharing some tips to get residents moving!

PLAN Whether you walk for leisure to get reacquainted with your neighbours or as a useful way to get from point A to point B, there’s an “App” for that. Think about ways you can plan your trips and activities. Take advantage of new technology and Plan! Use websites such as Map my walk to map your own routes or visit National Capital Commission and Gatineau Park trails network websites for information on trails, maps, and route distances throughout Ottawa-Gatineau. OC Transpo has smartphone Apps that can help plan your trip. Or maybe you want to bike but the distance is too far? Find out what buses have a Rack and Roll.

WALK Walking is a low cost activity that can be done by almost anyone, anywhere. It is the ideal mode of transport for trips of 2km or less. Take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and

walk to work or school, to the store or simply to get a coffee. Walk with a friend during lunch or take the bus to work and build walking into your everyday activities. Getting off a stop earlier will add extra minutes of physical activity to your day. When heading to the mall, grocery store or work, park at the far end of the parking lot - will also help avoid parking lot car door dings! Change your walking routes, borrow a pedometer from the library or rediscover Ottawa by taking walking tours – it will keep things interesting and fun.

PLAY Children need a variety of physical activities throughout their day! Ensure your child takes part in active and structured play. Active play is childled, fun and energetic while structured play is adult-led, teaching movement skills like running, jumping, climbing and balancing. Children learn these skills by playing games, participating in sports and activities such as dance. Visit the ‘Active for Life’ or ‘Bring Back Play’ websites for ideas and games to make play and physical activity fun for you and your family.

ENJOY: You need to enjoy what you do to stay active. Plan a date with friends and head to a local city pool for a swim, sign up to a run or a cycling race or head to a dog park for human-dog social time. Whatever it is that brings you joy, put your best foot forward. Get off the couch or out of your office chair and start enjoying a more active lifestyle – it’s easier than you think! For more tips and ideas follow Ottawa Public Health on Twitter @OttawaHealth, Facebook, Pinterest or visit our blog at OttawaPublicHealth. ca For questions or more information call or email the Ottawa Public Health information line at 613-580-6744 healthsante@ottawa.ca.

Walking is good for your health, enjoy and be aware! Written by Joanne Veldman, Public Health Nurse Ottawa Public Health

Be aware of your surroundings • Seeing and hearing is key – be aware that cellphones and earbuds can lower your awareness • Make eye contact with drivers and cyclists before you step off the curb, make sure they stop for you • If no sidewalk is available, walk facing traffic • Notice uneven surfaces to avoid falls

Be Seen • Wear bright coloured and reflective clothing especially on rainy days and during dark hours • Choose the safest route, even if you have to walk a little further • Plan your route and cross at intersections or marked crossings • Be predictable and follow the rules of the road

Be a role model • Children need adult supervision to cross streets until they develop an ability to judge speed, depth and distance of cars. This usually occurs with teaching, around 10-11 years of age

• Let children see your commitment to following the rules of the road Enjoy your walk and invite someone to join you! Remember your comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and water. To find out more information on walking safely visit Safe Kids Canada www.safekids. ca and Ministry of Transportation of Ontario

Time for a real transit plan

I

s a comprehensive transit plan too much for residents on both sides of the Ottawa River to ask for? Over the past few weeks, it has become clear that we don’t have a cohesive plan to direct the expansion of public transit services in the capital region. The National Capital Commission and the City of Ottawa are at odds on a pair of issues, namely a regional transit plan commissioned by those two organizations and the city of Gatineau and the preferred route for the western branch this city’s light rail system. For better or worse, Ottawa and Gatineau sit on opposite banks of what has long been Canada’s great divide. Despite those linguistic, cultural and political differences, people cross that divide on a regular basis to work, play or otherwise live their lives. This means leaders of both cities and the NCC, representing the federal government, need to consider how transit will evolve not only in Ottawa or Gatineau, but across the whole region. For example, the city’s transit commission rejected the findings of a regional plan because it didn’t align with goals for transit in Ottawa. Was

this because it sought to envision something bigger than just the needs of this city? Did it dare to think of the capital as something more than just those living on the south side of the river? But then during discussions surrounding the western route of the LRT, maintaining the Prince of Wales Bridge as a potential interprovincial transit crossing was referenced as reason to reject using Carling Avenue for light rail. So then is regional transit planning important after all? These questions make one wonder if the western LRT considerations are being made in isolation, or if they truly are part of a larger plan. If they are part of such a plan, what is it? Does the NCC know what those plans are? Does Gatineau? As veterans of the eastern interprovincial bridge saga can surely attest, decision making across the provincial divide is anything but easy, but are necessary in order to make effective decisions about how to spend billions of dollars and that affect more than a million people. Let’s not make decisions in isolation. Let’s keep lines of communication open. It may not be easy, but it’s the only way the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau and the NCC can deliver the kind of public transit the capital region deserves.

We’re not exactly digging a tunnel of love

T

here is no progress without heartbreak. Or, as they used to say on the left, you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs. In this respect, it’s intriguing to see how many different perspectives there can be on one project. A guy was complaining on the radio the other day, a guy who probably doesn’t live too far from me, about the west end LRT route that has been proposed by city planners. The route goes beside the parkway, then up to the Richmond-Byron corridor, where it tunnels underground and emerges somewhere around Lincoln Fields. This was going to be awful, the guy said, in effect. Get ready for the lawsuits. I didn’t catch exactly where the guy lives, but I can feel his pain. I live a few blocks from where some of the work will being done and my feelings, while less intense, are certainly mixed. Which is the way it goes with projects of this magnitude. On the one hand, looking at the big picture: I’m glad that there is going to be more light rail. The city needs it. How many of us have just about stopped going downtown because parking and traffic are so difficult? I can see a day when I can walk a few blocks

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town and hop on the train downtown. It’s hard not to like that. On the other hand, this thing isn’t going to be complete for 10 years. How many of those years will feature noisy digging and blasting, dust and smoke, closing off of streets and general inconvenience? From where I sit, it could mean having to take a slightly different route home; from where somebody else sits – perhaps the guy on the radio – it could mean years of real discomfort. It’s very nice that the proposed plan will save the Richmond-Byron Linear Park by tunneling under it, but first that tunnel has to be made. If you’re sitting right next to it, it may be a bit harder to appreciate the joys of expanded public transit. Similarly, if you’re on the north side of Published weekly by:

Richmond Road and accustomed to a nice view across the parkway to the river, it may not please you to know that trains will be coming along. And if you’re used to walking or biking along one of the paths beside the parkway, you may not be pleased at the thought it might disappear and be replaced by tracks. To dismiss such concerns at NIMBYism is unfair. NIMBYism is when you object to a proposed group home on your street – or someone else’s street. Being concerned about a tunnel being dug in front of your home is something else, as is being concerned about a 19-story condo going up beside you. Of course that’s one of the other perspectives on this particular transit project. Proximity to light rail makes an area attractive to developers, as if Richmond Road wasn’t attractive enough already. So with the light rail come more 19-story towers. The character of the neighbourhood changes – for the better, say the planners, maybe not, say the neighbours. Still, it could have been worse, couldn’t it? The whole linear park could have been torn up. The parkway could have been given over to light rail, making the National Capital Commission sad.

Managing change is not easy for anyone. Imagine what it must have been like to live near the Queensway as it was being built in the late ’50s and early ’60s. That would have been serious noise. Then, just for fun, imagine what would have happened had opponents of the project won the day. Let’s see. No quick way into town from the suburbs. People who worked downtown would have to live downtown. Rapid transit would be a low priority. And no one would be arguing today about a tunnel along Byron. Sorry if that ruined your day.

Being present is the greatest gift BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse funny, pickle, good thing it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a human, right?â&#x20AC;? The sad reality is most adults these days go about their days in a state of halfpresence. I would wager mothers, in particular (sorry, fellow mothers), are so busy much

I sit and talk with them while they have a snack. I ask them about their days.

THIS WEEKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S POLL QUESTION: Do you think a tunnel beneath Richmond Road is the best route for the western branch of the LRT?

A) Yes. It is the optimum route and the underground track will cause the least disruption to the community. B) No. Carling Avenue presents a much better option for light rail. C) No. The city needs to make a deal with the NCC so the tracks can go down the river parkway. D) I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even take transit, so I could care less where it runs. PREVIOUS POLL SUMMARY: Will the recent explosions at the Boston Marathon result in lower attendance by fans and runners at the Ottawa Race Weekend?

A) Yes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance it could happen here and some will be worried about security.

0%

B) Maybe. Even though a bombing is unlikely, some people might be afraid to show up.

33%

C) No. Acts of terror only serve to galvanize the public to not allow it to affect their behaviour.

50%

D) If anything, more fans and runners will attend the event in support of the race.

of the time that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually missing the moments weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve vowed to appreciate. In fairness, we have limited hours in the day to socialize with kids, while also trying

to feed them, discipline them and run them from one activity to another. (To parents of pre-school kids, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not less â&#x20AC;&#x201C; busy as the children age, believe it or not). But perhaps the biggest culprit is technology. I do like to text, use Facebook and send emails when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more convenient than making a phone call. Unfortunately this makes it increasingly difďŹ cult to communicate with those within my physical space. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to be more present. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy. But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying: when the kids get off the school bus, even if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m mid-text, I just hit send and pocket the phone. (This has caused confusion among friends and colleagues). When we get inside, I get discipline out of the way ďŹ rst by ordering them to do three things: wash hands, put away lunchboxes, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;be loving and helpful.â&#x20AC;? The latter saves me time later because I go on to repeat, â&#x20AC;&#x153;are we being loving

right now?â&#x20AC;? over and over again to break up ďŹ ghts, encourage the children to set the table, etc. (You know, the kind of stuff that will land them in the psychologistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re adults). I sit and talk with them while they have a snack. I ask them about their days. They ask about mine. I give them encouragement with homework (rather than defensively yelling at them continuously to â&#x20AC;&#x153;sit down and do it,â&#x20AC;? while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to send a work-related text). Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started reading together again in the evenings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which, believe it or not, seems to be the best time of day to ďŹ t in a really great conversation, while teaching them about morals based on the literature. It may sound all supermom of me, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not doing all of this perfectly well. But even on the days where paid work takes over and I have limited moments with the kids â&#x20AC;&#x201C; actually, especially on those days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve realized that being in the moment is ever more important. This was brought to focus when my eight-year-old said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom, I like how you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yell much these days.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what we can accomplish when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proactive and present rather than reactive and distracted.

he other day, my boys got off the school bus. It was one of those days where the driver had enforced silence for the entire 20-minute trip, so they were quite chatty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; talking over each other, mixing French and English. It was making my head spin. I was trying to respond to a text message from a friend. Later that evening, after weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done homework, had supper and taken showers, I was waiting for them to go to bed. I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d check my email and Facebook accounts. While I was sitting in my ofďŹ ce, my eldest came in to tell me about a presentation theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had at the school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something about electricity and a pickle. I nodded and laughed distractedly when he laughed and furrowed my eyebrows to match his expression. The next morning he asked me about the pickle. I was confused. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told you about it last night,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh yeah,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What was that about again?â&#x20AC;? He told me the story again. This time I got a bit more, but I was making school lunches. Wrapping deli meats can be rather focus-intensive for me. So once again I missed the point of the story.

Students deal with very adult issues: police officer Continued from page 1

Walker said that many students face significant challenges or roadblocks to completing their high school education, so for Rideau, helping a student finding a path that works for them constitutes success. The talk was part of Crime Prevention Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speaker series, titled Pursing Student Success in Urban Schools. AFTER SCHOOL

LANGUAGE BARRIER

Argel Jon Javier, a Grade 11 honours student at Notre Dame, said he started coming to the program when he was in Grade 7, new to Canada and needing English help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recently gave a presentation to new students,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would not have happened without that support. It helped me with English and social blending.â&#x20AC;? Walker and Ridgemont principal Richard King, who presented together, said attendance is a real problem for the schools. In Ontario, students legally have to attend secondary school. The schools are faced with the challenges of up to 45 languages spoken at the school, and not all parents being able to communicate with teachers and school administration without a translator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to help create situations where our students can see themselves successful,â&#x20AC;? Walker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we look at it through the lens that it is possible, it can happen.â&#x20AC;? He said that for many Rideau students, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finding an alternate path to success â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like finding outside classes or co-op positions that can get students closer to graduation. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also adopted the mentality of turning both Rideau and Ridge-

RESTORATIVE JUSTICE

King said that he has become a big believer in the restorative justice practice, an adapted punishment plan that is meant to address the specific incident and problem instead of issuing a blanket punishment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like a suspension. He said he became a convert several years ago, after two students were suspended for five days for fighting. Their first day back at school, they got in another fight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this one was very bloody. The five day suspension had no impact,â&#x20AC;?

Bonnie Campbell, principal at Notre Dame in west Ottawa spoke about equalization methods the school uses to put all their students on a level playing field. It includes an after school program, which includes bus transportation home, where tutors can help students with their homework, and English as a second language students with their English skills. The program also partners with Dovercourt Recreation Centre to put on swimming, sports and activities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as sewing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy (for Dovercourt) to serve families in Westboro, but harder to serve those several kilometres west,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. She added that some of the new Canadian students havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had access to swimming lessons before, and take part in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swim to Surviveâ&#x20AC;? program.

Rideau has implemented special parent nights for different communities, especially those with language barriers, to use translators. Next year, the school is going to take a new approach to communication with parents, beyond sending a letter home when a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendance is poor. Some families frequently change address, and parents may not understand the English letter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they even get it.

Hillcrest school community collects $35,000 for cancer research EMC news - Hundreds of students, staff and parents of the Hillcrest High School went door-to-door collecting donations for the Canadian Cancer Society on April 24. More than 500 students and staff participated by canvassing streets in the Alta Vista, Elmvale, Canterbury, Riverview Park and Hunt Club areas. In four hours the students managed to raise $35,000 for cancer research. For the past 19 years, the school has raised more than $500,000 through an event that has become a tradition at the school. “It is one of those things that gets everybody at the school and the community involved,” said 17-yearold Joy Munroe, one of the event’s co-chairs. The tradition started in 1994, when a few Hillcrest students were inspired to take action against cancer. Munroe, whose grandparents died of cancer said it is powerful to see how many people’s lives have been affected and touched by the disease. “It is important to try and change that because it is not fair at all,” she said. “It is always nice to know that you are helping other people and doing something good for your school.” School principal Reg Lavergne said the student-run activity is one of the most successful charitable events the school community participates in. “This demonstrates an incredible commitment on behalf of our

The organizing committee for this student-led project has been at work since September planning this fundraiser.

“Our goal was to have the most participation,” said Munroe. “We wanted the most (number) of students, staff and people from the community to come together for a common goal. If you do anything that you are passionate about, then

you are going to have a great time doing it.” Alex Lenz, the other co-chair said it was humbling seeing the entire school community behind their cause. “It means so much to me seeing

Councillors OK limits on their spending Changes to councillor expense spending, gift registry and code of conduct may come at city council Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Councillors decided to be more restrictive about the value of gifts they must disclose under a new code of conduct policy. Reducing the value of gifts or meals that must be publically disclosed from the recommended $200 to $30 was the only significant alteration made to the policy during a committee meeting on April 25. But before approving the new code of conduct, councillors peppered the city’s integrity commissioner and clerk with dozens of questions about how the rules limiting spending of their constituency budget. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said several councillors are preparing motions

aimed at changing the policy when it goes to city council on May 8. Mayor Jim Watson emphasized that it was important for him to push for accountability measures like the code of conduct and lobbyist registry before any scandals happened in Ottawa. “It does not set impossibleto-meet standards that won’t drown us in a sea of paperwork,” Watson said, adding the changes won’t add onerous paperwork for community groups. “We have found that the best time to put things in place is when there is no scandal that council is addressing,” said Lesley Donnelly, the deputy city clerk. The city’s integrity commissioner, Robert Marleau, said he would prefer to elimi-

nate gifts to council members entirely, but he understands it’s sometimes necessary to accept tokens so as not to offend the gifter. For the most part, the policies codify practices that are already in use, Donnelly said. Councillors were particularly concerned that the policy would impact their ability to contribute to community events. Things like providing refreshments for community barbeques or similar events would still be allowed, Marleau said. FUNDRAISING

Councillors can also be involved in fundraising initiatives, but there must be a “a good, arms length relationship from the councillor and the funds that are raised,” Marleau said. Adding their signatures to letters asking for fundraising support is fine, Marleau said, as long as the letters are not send to lobbyists who are actively involved in lobbying the city. Donation of office funds

to charities must be made by way of city-issued cheque, the policy states. “This is not our money, it is the public’s money,” Watson told councillors. “If you want to be generous, use your own money.” Those contributions will now be limited to 3.5 per cent of each councillor’s annual office and constituency budget. That’s around the median of what councillors spent on those sorts of expenses in the last two years. “It shouldn’t be the taxpayers that pay for it,” Watson said, referring councillors using their budgets to pay for things like residents’ water bills or trips abroad. “They are called constituency service budgets, not office budgets,” said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli. “They are also there to provide community outreach … It shouldn’t surprise people that the functions correspond to exactly what the description is.” Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli tried to get the limit upped to five per cent,

but his motion was defeated in a 6-5 vote with councillors Egli, Chiarelli, Mark Taylor and Doug Thompson voting in favour and councillors Peter Clark, Katherine Hobbs, Maria McRae, Scott Moffatt, Bob Monette and Watson voting against the increase.

If you want to be generous, use your own money MAYOR JIM WATSON

“We’re putting limits on it so it’s not a bottomless pit,” the mayor said. Egli said that different neighbourhoods might have greater need for community building a any give time, so the five per cent limit would have offered more flexibility. Councillors’ “constituency

Councillors won’t be allowed to contribute to purchasing material goods on behalf of groups, or contributing to city-funded services or departments. If councillors want to contribute to something the city would normally pay for but is not in the budget, like a pedestrian crossing, it would have to be approved by a council motion.

Stake campaign lets community members design fence

Councillor/Conseillère Quartier Gloucester-Southgate Ward

Fire Hydrant Testing Program I would like to advise residents that routine maintenance of ďŹ re hydrants will be taking place to ensure they meet all of the requirements and expectations of Fire Services. Testing will include opening the hydrants fully and discharging water at a high ďŹ&#x201A;ow rate. These measures can cause a temporary reduction in water pressure and the dislodging of sediment which occasionally results in brown or rust-coloured water. It is important to remember that while this rust does not pose a health risk, it is not recommended that you drink or use discoloured water to wash laundry. If you detect discoloured water, turn off your tap for approximately 20 minutes while crews ďŹ nish the test. Following this run COLD water for several minutes until water becomes clear. Residents in affected areas will receive written notice from the City prior to testing. For more information you can visit Ottawa.ca/ďŹ rehydrants or call the Water Information Line at 613-560-6089.

EMC news - The New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre has launched a campaign to spark some creativity and raise much-needed funds into the non-proďŹ t organization. The centre launched its Buy a Stake campaign at the beginning of February to encourage community members to get creative and design one stake for a fence at the centre that will be built in June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are inviting the community to make this centre their own,â&#x20AC;? said Melanie Davis, the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director. The cedar stakes are $50, for which the centre will issue a charitable receipt for $40.

Davis said the centre has been hosting decorating parties, where those who have purchased a stake can personalize their own piece of the fence. Otherwise, the donors can take them home to decorate or commission one of the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artists to get creative on their behalf. Acrylic, oil or exterior house paint is recommended and the next decorating party is planned for May 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. The centre is hoping to raise $15,000 from the campaign to update the facility in order to meet current building and ďŹ re codes. The building where the community centre is currently operating was purchased in September 2011. Since the non-proďŹ t organization moved in, the group has launched new programming for the New Edinburgh community, but the facility itself must be upgraded. The centre must have a ďŹ re exit on each ďŹ&#x201A;oor of the three-storey building. In addition the group aims to make the ďŹ rst ďŹ&#x201A;oor wheelchair accessible. Davis said she decided to launch this creative fundraiser as a way to generate community involvement, raise much needed funds and add some artistic ďŹ&#x201A;air to the outside of

the building. The fence will frame the property and so far it is shaping up to be a unique mix of colours, ideas, images and concepts. Davis said really, when it comes to the design, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to draw attention to the

fact this is a community and art centre,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Edinburgh is a creative community and we felt this was a great way to show that.â&#x20AC;? To purchase a stake in person or over the phone, Davis said to call the centre at 613-745-2742. Purchased stakes must be returned by May 25, when they will be coated with sealant and then built into the fence. The complete fence will be revealed on June 1, when the centre participates in Doors Open Ottawa, with a community event in the front yard. Visit www.nectarcentre.ca for more information.

Hunt Club Road Noise Barrier Project The community will soon notice work commencing on noise barrier fences along Hunt Club Road from Hawthorne Road to Albion Road. I secured funding for these fences along Hunt Club Road as a condition of extending Hunt Club to the 417. Noise barrier fences will be going in locations where fences previously did not exist or did not meet the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound attenuation standards. The City of Ottawa has awarded the Hunt Club Road noise barrier contract to Goldie Mohr Ltd. and construction will commence in May 2013. The installation of all of the noise barriers is to be completed by the end of 2013 and any remaining landscaping reinstatements will be completed in the spring of 2014. The work will include, tree trimming and tree removal (where absolutely necessary), excavation and construction of foundations and posts for the noise barrier, erection of noise barrier panels, and landscaping (new trees, plants and mulch). There may be some inconvenience during the course of the work, such as delays and trafďŹ c detours when travelling through the construction zone, as well as noise and dust. I would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 2, 2013

EMC news - After years of raising money, planning and consulting members of the community, a parking and landscaping project at the Glebe Community Centre is finally ready to move ahead. The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group has been working on plans to add more parking and an outside play area at the Glebe Community Centre for the past three years. With the groundwork for that project finally laid, the remaining work to see those plans become reality is set to begin this June. Landscape committee member Kate McCartney said the project is the final step in renovations to the centre. “This is the completion of a landscape development plan that was first envisioned back when the GCC was renovated,” she said. “The current parking is actually only temporary parking pad that never got upgraded when the renovations were done, nor in 2007 when the walkway down to the front door as done, due to insufficient funds at those times. It was always the inten-

tion to finish the job.” The construction of the new parking area will create what the committee describes as safe zones around the two school crossing areas at the end of the block and will move the sidewalk to where pedestrians will be safer. The project will also increase the available parking from six spaces and one handicap space to 18 total spaces. Four bicycle racks will also be added, which Capital Coun. David Chernushenko has donated towards the project, McCartney said. The current parking area will be turned into a picnic area, something the committee has indicated is missing for the centre. “Total green space will increase by approx 400 square feet (37 square metres),” McCartney said. “There will not be a loss of trees or added pavement to an area that is already green space.” In addition to the picnic area, a community garden is also being planned. This project has been primarily funded by the community. Multiple fundraisers were held, including January’s Taste in the Glebe event.

The group is receiving financial assistance from Cherenshenko for all bike-related costs, from the city for all the tree-related costs and the Glebe Community Association is helping fund the garden-related costs. The association has also applied for a grant to help cover the cost of the outdoor furniture, McCartney said, but the group is still waiting to hear about the status of that grant application. McCartney added that all construction and design will be done at cost and the city waived all administrative and legal costs. The committee has done extensive consultations with the community regarding the project, including halting plans to start construction back in the fall to consult further with residents. “The project was driven throughout by community input and was initiated and brought to completion by volunteer members of the community,” she said. McCartney said the group has been told hard landscaping construction should take at least a week. Digging for the trees will take place in the fall.

Plans to update the Rideau Centre get OK from NCC Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The National Capital Commission has given the green light to plans that will see an update to the facade of the Rideau Centre. Cadillac Fairview, owner of the downtown shopping centre, has proposed changes that will affect the facade on portions of Rideau Street, Colonel By Drive, Nicholas Street and McKenzie King Bridge. Christopher Hoyt, the senior architect overseeing the project, presented the recommendations to the NCC board at a recent meeting. The presentation included preliminary images of revamped Rideau Street and Mackenzie King entrances, an updated pedestrian bridge between the shopping centre and the Hudson’s Bay store on the opposite side of Rideau, and a new garage entrance on Nicholas Street. The commission does not own the land, but a restrictive covenant was part of the 1981 sale to then-owners of the property, the Viking Rideau Corporation. which states any alterations to the exterior or new structures built are subject to the approval of the NCC. The covenant affects the facade along Rideau Street and Sussex Avenue, Colonel By Drive, portions of Nicholas Street, portions of Mackenzie King Bridge and the rooftop terrace near Mackenzie King Bridge. Hoyt said signage for the building was not approved and would need to be discussed at a later meeting. The proposed plans were well received by the NCC board and were unanimously ap-

SUBMITTED

The National Capital Commission has approved preliminary designs submitted by Cadillac Fairview to renovate the Rideau Centre. Changes include new front entrances on Rideau Street and Mackenzie King Bridge. proved. The board, however, did consider whether the roof-top terrace needed to remain as a NCC-operated property. Fred Gaspere, director of federal approvals and environmental management for the NCC, said commission staff have recommended the mall owner take over responsibility for the ter-

race. “I can confirm that we would like to have a discussion with them about the entire project, including the rooftop terrace,” he said. “Absolutely we have put it to the centre.” Board member Jason Sordi expressed reservations about the current state of Rideau

Street, concerned that if hoarding is placed along the street during construction, it could provide more places for people to hide or make the street more unsavory then it already is. Board member Kay Stanley said she was intrigued by the project and felt that as the renovations move forward, some concerns about safety and pedestrian use Rideau Street will improve. The board approved the preliminary designs with the following conditions • That the west elevation of the project at Colonel By Drive be developed further and in accordance with upcoming NCC guidelines for naming and signage and that drawings for this elevation be reviewed by the NCC for approval. • That Cadillac Fairview provide a detailed construction schedule for the project to the NCC for review. • That the roof terrace plans and detailed design be provided to the NCC for review. • That the building design and construction drawings, specifications, and material samples as pertaining to roofscape, building envelope, site and landscape development be provided to the NCC for review for major drawing issues. • That the property owner obtain for permission to alter The Transportation building, also known as 10 Rideau St., prior to any construction under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act. • That the Parks Canada standards and guidelines be respected as they pertain to development along the Rideau Canal World Heritage Site.

Humane societies put stamp on Canadian history Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - The country will honour its four-legged friends in the form of a commemorative Adopt a Pet commemorative stamp. The stamp, which features actual pets that were up for adoption at the Toronto Humane Society, was unveiled at the Ottawa Humane Society facility on West Hunt Club Road on April 22. Linda Barber, chair of the OHS board of directors, said the stamps will bring the message of animal welfare to residents across the country. “It’s fitting that this is happening in the Ottawa Humane Society’s 125th anniversary year,” Barber said. The Ottawa Humane Society takes in 11,000 abandoned and neglected animals per year. Barbara Cartwright, CEO of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, said a report in 2011 showed that 600,000 cats and 400,000 dogs were up for adoption across the country that year. Minister of Transport, Steven Fletcher, said Canadian stamps are a great way to celebrate Canadian history and culture. “We live in the best country in the

world, at a probably the best time to be a human. We should do what we can to make sure it’s the best time for animals too,” Fletcher said. The stamps, which will feature the likeness of seven different animals, are bordered with what appear to be the walls of a cage. Fletcher said when the stamp is removed, Canadians will be symbolically removing the animals from the cages. “We wanted to show real animals currently in the shelter system,” Deepak Chopra, CEO of Canada Post said. “Buddy” a 32-year-old parrot and Mr. Wrinkles a mixed-breed dog, are two of the characters to be showcased on the new stamps. Both have been adopted after being selected as models. Laureen Harper, who volunteers with the OHS, said she was happy to see animals like parrots shown on the stamps, because it will remind people that it’s not just dogs and cats in need of our help. “Each type of animal has their own rescue society,” she said.

The provincial NDP is seeking to reduce drivers’ expenses through lower insurance premiums. In recent years, premiums have gone up as benefits have dropped.

NDP press to lower car insurance premiums Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - A motion presented by the NDP could have Ottawa and all Ontario residents seeing a 15 per cent slash in their auto insurance premiums. The provincial New Democrats pushed for the motion after watching premiums go up and payouts go down. Since 2010, the provincial government has agreed to increase premiums by five per cent and cut benefits by more than 50 per cent, saving the insurance companies about $2 billion annually. Previously the typical payout a moderately injured customer would receive hovered around $100,000, but the cap has lowered that amount to $50,000 with the average receiving much less. “The vast majority of people are now being told they can only get up to $3,500 in coverage which makes our coverage amongst the lowest in all of Canada,” said Bramalea-Gore-Malton MPP Jagmeet Singh. “Insurance companies have enjoyed, and this is not an exaggeration, one of the most historically significant reductions in their costs in Ontario’s history. Period,” he added. “So we are paying more money for an inferior product.” Over the years, the insurance companies have seen an overall cost reduction of 35 per cent. A legislated reduction of premiums of 15 per cent seemed fair for both customers and the industry, said the MPP. “We want results that are achievable, that are reasonable and that will help people out,” said Singh. FRAUD PREVENTION: PCS

Insurance brokers do not believe a legislated premium reduction is the way to go, neither do the Progressive Conservatives. “The motion to reduce premiums by 15 per cent period is a noble thought, but however it doesn’t address the problem about why the premiums are high,” said Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren. Various stakeholders have identified that

preventing fraud is an integral piece to cutting down premiums for all. Fraud costs the industry between $750 million and $1.5 billion annually. Insurance companies are also wrapped in yards of red tape. They must apply to a regulatory body to change a premium rate whether to increase or decrease it. The process is slow and cumbersome and can take up to six months to get a reply, said MacLaren. Appealing a claim is also a tedious process, with customers often waiting up to a year for a response. PREMIUMS

Imposing a mandatory slash in premiums could do more harm than good by eliminating competition and the root causes of the problem would still be there, said MacLaren. “We have to do the tough work of getting rid of the fraud, getting rid of the red tape and providing a truly competitive environment for private companies,” he said. “The marketplace will reward us with lower premiums.” The NDP has countered that the party supports reducing fraud but that reductions in 2010 have already cut the number of cases and cost significantly. “It shouldn’t be contingent on further fraud reduction measures,” said Singh. “I think that’s a red herring, a politic of distraction. I think we should see those changes now. We are more than happy to implement more fraud reduction policies down the road but those should be tied in to more reductions.” The Liberal government has agreed to add the motion to the province’s yearly budget, but it was a hard sell. Petitions were signed, city halls were visited and a grassroots movement was built and finally was accepted. “All those things together, I think worked in finally putting pressure,” he added. The provincial budget is planned to be approved at the end of April, but customers could start feeling the effects within a year. “People will start feeling it during their renewal,” said Singh.

“It was so frustrating to have done everything right over the years and still end up with cancer.

Blackboard zeal leads to outhouse chore Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories pily and even a bit smugly. It was an honour and one not to be taken lightly. There was no such thing as a school caretaker back then. We scrubbed the floors once a month, took ashes out of the stove, washed the windows and one of us, for a whole week, had the job of emptying the big green tin waste basket at the end of each day. One of the jobs nobody wanted was one assigned on the last school day of every month. Because it was a detested job, it always went to a boy from Senior Fourth. He would carry the pail of lime out of the cupboard at the back of the school, carry it to the outhouse and shovel in a heaping dose. Inside the outhouse there was a tin can of lime which we were supposed to use when we went

to the bathroom for serious business, but I was pretty sure back then that very few pupils bothered. And every morning, just after singing God Save the King, Miss Crosby would announce the name of the person who would be given the privilege of cleaning off the blackboards and that day, the job fell to Two Mile Herman. Thinking she was going to get on the good side of Miss Crosby, Marguirite sneaked back into the school during afternoon recess and stole the job away from Two Mile Herman right out from under his nose. Well, when Miss Crosby rang the bell and we marched back in (all in order of course â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the youngest of us at the front of the line, the oldest

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Young lady, if you are so anxious to work, you can take these outside and get rid of the chalk dust and when you are finished, you can go to the cloak room and get the pail of lime and go to the outhouse.

What she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done, which was always part of the job, was to take the brushes outside and pound them together to get rid of the chalk dust.

Sixteen pairs of eyes darted (there were 18 of us at the Northcote School) from Miss Crosby, who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tolerate for a second an outburst like she just heard from Two Mile Herman, then to Marguirite, then back to Herman. I was sure he would get a taste of the leather strap which hung on a cup hook on the side of the teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desk. And Marguirite, sitting so smug you just wanted to slap her, was beaming. Well, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the rest of the day for Miss Crosby to settle the issue.

Emerson went on to explain: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miss Crosby told Two Mile Herman it was his turn to clean off the blackboards after school. And when I went back in the school to get the ball glove out of the cloak room, there was Marguirite wiping the blackboards like a maniac. The chalk dust was flying everywhere. I tell you Miss Crosby wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happy and Two Mile Herman will just about kill Marguirite.â&#x20AC;? Back then it was a privilege to be asked to do any of the cleaning necessary to keep the school as neat and tidy as possible.

Failing to Plan is

Cravings

Planning to Fail

We all have been known to reach for that sugary treat once in a while, but what if you can’t seem to get enough? One of the most common causes for sugar cravings is linked to a hormone imbalance. As a result your mood and energy get low. To help, your body simply looks for quick fuel and the happy hormone serotonin. So what can you do? Prevention is the key. Start your day off right by exercising to increase serotonin. Then have a whole grain breakfast which helps to balance your blood sugar. Next, include cruciferous high fibre veggies like kale which helps your hormones. For all of your meals, work on including protein and healthy fats from foods like walnuts, which help tell your body you are full. Lastly, sprinkle spices like cinnamon, coriander and saffron, to any of your creations to kick your cravings to the curb even more!

Children to lead charge during urban walk Sandy Hill walking tour to inspire imaginations michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A group of young, imaginative minds would like to welcome other youthful urbanites to go for a walk around Sandy Hill this weekend. Jane’s Walk is set to take place all over the city on May 4 and 5, and in Sandy Hill a trio of eight-year-old tour guides will be leading the way. “This is a chance to see the neighbourhood through the eyes of a child,” said Sandra MacPherson, a co-ordinator for Ottawa’s Jane’s Walk. This children’s walk will be the first of its kind for the Ottawa Jane’s Walk. MacPherson said she came up with the idea to present a walk where anything goes, imagination is welcome and inquiring minds are encouraged. “This walk is about the simpler things that most of us just walk by and don’t see,” she said. “To me all rocks kind of look the same, but kids see the detail, and they say, ‘No, this rock is different.’ ... It makes you realize that there is complexity in nature that is fascinating and to me that is what Jane’s Walk is all about.” The annual event takes place in cities all over the world and is named after writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs. The walks are typically held on the first weekend of May to coincide with Jacobs’s birthday. The walks are led by volunteers and, like the walk that is taking place in Sandy Hill, can focus on just about anything. The mother of one of the eightyear-old tour guides and a PhD student studying the impact of urban literature, MacPherson said she wanted to create a walk that included young children and promoted urban living. With that idea in mind, she approached her daughter’s daycare, Bettye Hyde, for support. They (Bettye Hyde) have been amazing in making this come together,” she said. The daycare will be providing teachers for an art activity after the walk.

In preparation, MacPherson said she took her young leaders out with a group of younger children. “It was fascinating to watch the walk,” she said. “The older kids were leading and the younger ones were so attentive. They would stop and look at something and the younger kids would ask a question and the older kids would give their opinions.” This scenario is what MacPherson hopes the May 5 walk will be about. It will lead children and their parents through Sandy Hill to Strathcona Park and along the Rideau River pathway. “What’s really interesting about our walk is that we look at art on people’s lawn, the diversity of the lawns and urban landscape and then we will walk along the river and Strathcona Park,” she said. “I think we are special to have this urban-nature mix. That is a huge part of our walk.” Passionate about promoting urban living and landscapes, MacPherson said she loves events such as Jane’s Walk because to her, these walks are all about getting people to love where they live. “These walks are about enjoying where you are living, and the kids are just one part of that overall enthusiasm,” she said. “The city doesn’t have to be a demonized place, that we only live here because we have to, but that it’s actually a wonderful place, where people can make a change and I think if the children can see nature in Strathcona Park to the homes in the neighbourhood, and how these homes express themselves, they would see that they can also make change happen in this city.” Children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the children’s walk. NEIGHBOURHOOD PARTICIPATION

To kick off a weekend, organizers for this year’s event have a Jane’s Talk planned at TAN Coffee at 317 Wilbrod St. in Sandy Hill on May 2. The evening will focus on the neigh-

Multiple Vanier residents will be on hand to speak about the neighbourhood’s rebirth. Museoparc’s Janik Aubin-Robert said each community representative will have a unique message, but the focus will be the same. “Each organization will be given the chance to explain its role in the community and most importantly how it works together with others to achieve its goals,” Aubin-Robert said. “We want other communities to look at Vanier and say “Wow, what

an amazing and diverse community.’ “Vanier is a changing community. We want to showcase these changes and make people aware of the wonderful innovative projects and initiative going on in this amazing community.” Sandy Hill is only one of the neighbourhoods’ participating in this city-wide event. Walks are also taking place in Vanier, New Edinburgh, the ByWard Market, the Glebe, Old Ottawa South, Manotick, Kanata and Barrhaven among others. There will also be some French walks available. In New Edinburgh, local volun-

teers will be leading a walk titled Bring Back Beechwood, which will reminisce about changes to the street since a March 2011 fire destroyed a portion of the neighbourhood’s main shopping district. “It will be about remembering when, but it will also feature a visioning of what it can be,” said organizer Isobel Bisby. New Edinburgh’s walk will begin at 10 a.m. on May 5 and will start at the New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre and will end at St. Charles Church.

City brings hammer down on home conversions Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - In a surprise move to deal with conversions of homes to apartment buildings, the city’s planning committee chairman sponsored a motion to put a temporary hold on any conversions in Sandy Hill, Vanier and Capital Ward. The rare measure of using the interim control bylaw is one of the strongest tools the city can use and it’s not undertaken lightly. The temporary moratorium on certain types of conversions will give city planning staff time to look at how to address issues created by housing 16 or more people in houses that used to be home to one family. Things like garbage, parking, bicycle parking and noise led to the implementation of a pilot project requiring something called site-plan approval for conversions in Sandy Hill, where pressure to provide offcampus housing for students has resulted in many such conversions. The ward’s councillor, RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, said he and city staff quickly realized that site-plan control wouldn’t be enough to deal with the fallout of cramming several times the number of residents into a home than previously resided there. “We realized ‘site plan light’ was

addressing what we were hearing … but it wasn’t getting to the core,” Fleury said. When the same issues were identified in Old Ottawa South, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko asked the planning committee to adopt the same type of site-plan controls for his ward. Instead, planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume surprised him by proposing the much stricter interim control bylaw. “We were making it clear that this is a big problem,” Chernushenko said. “There are times when your public servants say… ‘This isn’t looking good.’ “We’re pressing the pause button as we look for a solution.” City staff will report back in four to six months on a more permanent fix for controlling conversions, said John Smit, the city’s manager of urban development review. Fleury said he hopes the rules Smit and his team come up with result in housing conversions that “respect the mature neighbourhood that Sandy Hill is.” Part of the challenge is finding a way to encourage the University of Ottawa to build student residences in the community, he said. Chernushenko said he has had discussions with developers about the seriousness of the issue and how

Chernushenko is hoping the solution staff find is sensitive to the need for a mix of housing types.

He doesn’t want any changes to reduce the availability of more affordably housing geared at students or people with low incomes and seniors. “Let’s be very careful that this isn’t about students and apart-

ments,” he said. We can’t set the rules (so) tight that we’re precluding ourselves from reaching diversity and affordability goals.” The portion of Capital Ward south of the Rideau River is not included in the interim control bylaw.

Residents demand rail on Carling Avenue Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

R0012062303

R0012064591

EMC news - Carling Avenue boosters came out in force at a city meeting to discuss routes to take light rail west from Tunney’s Pasture to Baseline Station. But running rapid rail transit down Carling Avenue is off the table, said transportation committee chairman Keith Egli. That comment was met with shouts of derision and participants saw exiting the city-hall meeting. The meeting stretched late into the evening as speakers who stood up from among a crowd of around 300 people took turns deriding the process that led to them being blindsided by the city concluding it prefers one of the 15 routes it originally began studying. The chosen route – coined the Richmond Underground – would skirt along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway before reaching a new, above-ground station at Cleary Avenue and then dipping underground. The line, which wouldn’t be built for another decade, would continue under Richmond Road until just before Lincoln Fields, where the Sir. John A. Macdonald Parkway and existing Transitway meet Richmond Road. The route was chosen as an “elegant solution” to address concerns raised by the community and National Capital Commission last year, including a desire to preserve the Byron Linear Park and access to green space along the parkway. City staff struggled to explain the concept of putting a secondary transit line on Carling in the

manager in charge of overseeing transportation matters, adding “(it) is not a good transit solution for the future of the city.” It would mean that buses would still have to run on the parkway to serve the communities to the north, it would eliminate the option of extending light rail over the Prince of Wales Bridge and it would force riders to have more transfers by cutting off the O-Train at Carling, Schepers said. “Carling is off the table,” said transportation committee chairman Keith Egli. Residents at the meeting weren’t having it. “Does it not make sense to have the train going through the centre of gravity of the city?” LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND said one man. “No one lives in the river.” More than 300 people packed into council chambers on April 25 open housefor a Others said it doesn’t make sense to ignore presentation and question-and-answer session about the new preferred route for people to the south.

ABCs of infant care offered at Early Years Expo Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - For parents with questions about car seats, breast feeding, or child safety, the Early Years Expo is a place to get answers. The Early Years Expo is being held on May 4 at the South Fallingbrook Community Centre at 998 Valin St. Mayor Jim Watson will open the event at 11 a.m., but the expo itself will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “A lot of our exhibitors are serviceoriented, you can get a lot of information,” said Lyne Proulx, event coordinator of the expo. Exhibits range from public health immunization to day-care services to commercial exhibitors. The expo has expanded from last year, and will have more seminars and presentations. Organizers have upgraded to booths instead of tables for exhibitors, and more events have been added for children who attend. There will be a meet and greet with Dora the Explorer and Diego, characters from children’s television shows, from 11 a.m. to noon, and costumed figures dressed as Spiderman and Rapunzel from 2 to 3 p.m. and an all day kid’s corner with games and crafts. Several of the seminars are also child-friendly, and La Leche League will set up a breastfeeding and diaper change area.

There will be a car seat clinic running from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., which will request a $30 donation, through Seats for Kids Canada. Local author Tammy Plunkett will also discuss her new book, Being Human at noon. Her talk is titled “Busting the Perfect Parent Myth.” Last year, about 500 people visited the expo, said Proulx. This year, through more publicity, they are hoping to attract an even larger crowd. The expo is geared towards parents of children up to the age of three. Except for the car seat clinic and the barbecue, all of the events are free. SEMINARS

Last-minute design consultation attracts residents Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Despite expressions of anger and regret over a secret deal struck between a group of developers and the Centretown community association, the mood at an April 23 community design plan meeting was civil. The Centretown Citizens Community Association called the 11th-hour meeting to seek public comment on the deal struck by its board. The choice put to community members basically boiled down to whether people favoured the community design plan supported by city staff or the deal reached between a group of developers and the Centretown community association’s board. Reasoned arguments were made on both sides, with community association planning committee member Debby Hanscom lamenting the negotiations that even she was left out of, and community association board member Brian Bourne defending the board’s deal with developers. A reoccurring theme during the meeting was dismay over the community associa-

tion board’s choice to strike a deal with developers in secret and bring it to the city’s planning committee on behalf of the broader community, which was not aware of the deal. Centretown Citizens Community Association president Jordan Charbonneau said in hindsight, the discussions should have been more open. “I wish we had been more inclusive from the beginning,” he said. “We recognize that it upset people.” Timelines were short and the board was unsure what – if anything – would come from the discussions, Charbonneau said. “Because there was so much likelihood for outrage, we wanted to see if it was even possible first,” Charbonneau said. The April 23 meeting was a way to seek that broader involvement, he said. It worked – almost 150 people packed into the Dominion-Chalmers Church basement. But the results of the consultation were murkier. Many people who spoke admitted they were becoming involved in the process late in the game and had trouble comprehending the complex information

that had evolved over three years of work and consultation. In the end, the vast majority of people in attendance put up their hands to vote that they didn’t know which option would be best. The show of hands is just one factor the community association board will use to form its position on how to move forward, Charbonneau said. The association will also be looking to communications from residents and word of mouth. LANDMARK BUILDINGS

The root of the difference between the developer-community board deal and the city’s proposed plan is how they would deal with provisions for allowing taller buildings. Under the community design plan supported by city staff, this would be done under a landmark buildings policy. Most people on either side of the argument agreed that the application for the policy would be limited to only a handful of properties in Centretown. It would place a list of restrictive requirements on

where a “landmark” building could go and what it would have to look like. I would also require builders to include either a community use, cultural or institutional facility, or a large public open space comprising 40 per cent of the property. “I like that because it confirms just how extraordinary and selective theses sites would have to be to exceed the max nine storey height limits,” Hanscom argued in her presentation. Some residents, including Thomas McVeigh, agreed. He said he’s not afraid of tall buildings, but he is afraid of losing Centretown’s vibrant street life. Allowing a small number of very tall buildings will also allow Centretown’s population to grow while preserving the low-rise neighbourhoods on the east and west sides of Centretown, he said. Another resident, Diana Forbes, said the landmark buildings policy might be beneficial if it helped create a space for something beneficial to the community, such as a new central library. People who reject the tall landmark buildings policy saw

removing all limits on building heights in Centretown save for the Parliamentary view plane would be ludicrous. SMALL MOMENTS

Instead, they favour something that would help green Centretown in smaller ways, by offering modest increases in building height in exchange for a certain amount of public open space on the property, which is referred to in the community-developer deal as the “small moments” policy. Ted Fobert of FoTenn Consultants said the group of seven developers he represents are “looking in a truly altruistic way at the community of Centretown” by giving up the opportunity to build tall towers under the landmark buildings policy. But people on the other side of the argument said the developers would be gaining, not giving anything up. Far more properties in Centretown would qualify under the “small moments” provisions, meaning Centretown could see a proliferation of 15storey buildings as opposed to the nine-story limit set out in the community design plan.

UNDECIDED

But most people at the meeting seemed undecided or unsure of the details of the policies and what they meant. Doug Williams, a resident of the Golden Triangle, called it a “headlong rush to the finish line.” “It feels premature,” he said. The Centretown community design plan has already seen multiple delays and it is now set to be considered for final approval by full city council on May 8, said Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes. Before that happens, there will be one final public meeting during which city staff to reveal its response to the deal between the developers and the community association board. That meeting was set to take place at city hall on April 30 at 1:30 p.m. Moving forward, Charbonneau said getting involved with the community association is the best way to ensure the group represents residents’ interests. The association has around 100 paid members and a mailing list that goes to 250 interested people.

Spoken like a true photographer, he’s more worried about protecting his lenses and getting a clear shot than the sweltering African heat or photographing wild lions. “You learn it’s not that risky, the cats see you not as a person in a vehicle, but a vehicle the size of an elephant,” Shaughnessy said. “Patience is a big thing. Cats in the middle of the day are pretty boring – it’s waiting around for something to happen.” For his wildlife and nature photography, Shaughnessy was honoured with a premier Canadian Photographic Artist of the Year Award, which he received at the Professional Photographers of Canada Association’s annual conference in Vancouver. Awards were given for portrait, commercial, wedding and Shaughnessy’s award, specialist (photographic artist). He said judges look for variety in the photos selected, and imagines they haven’t seen before. His set included photos from Tanzanian safaris, and travels throughout North America.

In 2012, he won the provincial Photographic Artist of the Year award, and best in class for the animal – wild/domestic category. “This year I’ve stepped up and submitted some enhancements,” he said. “Some of them were the same photos with little changes. Often when you go in and are judged, you get ideas of ways you can bring (your photos) up to another level.” He started shooting the mountains in Alberta, where he grew up,

as a youth, but kept photography as a part-time passion while working in information technology. The Orléans resident decided to dive in and become a full time photographer, shooting weddings, portraits, wildlife, and everything in between. “The last three years I’ve gone full speed into it, 90 per cent of my time is into photography,” he said.

He operates a studio out of his home, Shaughnessy Photography, and travels around the world photographing people, landscapes and animals. Soon he will lead photo safari tours, helping other photographers with the small details he’s picked up along his travels in Tanzania. “There’s everything you can imagine there,” he said. Shaughnessy said when he goes on vacation, it’s different than most – while many are sitting on the beach, he’s hiking trails, camera in hand. He’s also about to start teaching a continuing education photography course at St. Matthew High School. He hopes to enter a different category in future years to his different skills in photography. “It’s always keeping variety, so I’m going to look at some of the other options and continue doing what I’m doing,” Shaughnessy said. “Onward and upward, looking for more challenges.”

Heart and soul: athlete leads volunteers Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Former Osgoode Township High School student Chris Vizena is so accomplished on and off the soccer field, he has to consult a list to remember it all. Apart from playing varsity soccer every year since he began his studies at Mount Allison University in Sackville, Nova Scotia four years ago, he has also maintained healthy grades and spends the majority of his free time volunteering. For these efforts the 21-year-old Osgoode native has taken home three of the most prestigious awards an athlete can get from his school, region or country. In November, he won community service awards from the Atlantic University Sport association and the Canadian Interuniversity Sport association. Most recently, Vizena won the Harvey Gilmour Sportsmanship Award, one of Mount Allison’s most hotly contested athletics awards that recognizes “an individual who puts his heart and soul into practices and games while positively contributing to his team in every way,” said school spokesperson Susan Seaborn. Vizena said that’s just part of being a team player - especially when he’s a senior member of the team.

“When you’re part of a team, being a leader and putting your heart and soul into the team is so much more than just on the field,” he said. “By working hard it sets a standard for the team and the new players.” The fourth-year global health student is a four-time Academic AllCanadian (a varsity athlete who also achieves high grades) and regularly volunteers on and off campus. He is a teaching assistant in the biochemistry department, the vice-president of academics for the school’s psychology society, chairman of the student government’s athletics affairs committee, and leads campus tours. He also co-ordinates Mounties in Motion, a campus group for varsity athletes. Through that group, he tutors Grade 5 students once a week and regularly spends time with hospital patients waiting for a spot in longterm care facilities. As part of his interest in public and global health, Vizena co-ordinates the school’s public health brigade which travels to Honduras for 10 days every year to build water and sanitation facilities in remote rural communities. He has been three times: twice as a participant and once as a co-ordinator. In the summers, Vizena coaches a U14 boys’ soccer team in Sackville. Vizena said he came by most of

his commitments by accident, and his reputation for helpfulness evolved from there. “When I first came to Mount (Allison) I had no intention of getting this involved,” he said. “But once you get your feet wet you want more and it kind of just happens, you just evolve into this leadership position because you know what’s going on.” Keeping up with school work between soccer and volunteering is never an easy task, he said, but that’s not the hardest part. “The biggest challenge is to say no,” Vizena said. “You could spend your four years not even in class and just doing all the other stuff.” Vizena will graduate this spring, and has already been applying to masters’ programs in public health. He will likely end up at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. After that, he could go anywhere. “My degree is pretty international, and Osgoode and Sackville aren’t really public health hubs,” he joked. “But maybe Ottawa.”

Former Osgoode Township High School student Chris Vizena has been honoured for his commitment to community service. SUBMITTED

Pet Adoptions DUKE

STUBBS

ID#A154455

ID#A152261

Duke is 10 month-old energetic, neutered male, tricolor Coonhound who loves to say hello to everyone he meets. He was transferred to the Ottawa Humane Society from another shelter on April 5, and is now available for adoption. He’s got a tone of energy to burn so he’d love to go hiking and running on-leash daily. Mentally stimulating courses like agility, fly-ball or scent tracking would be

lots of fun for Duke! He gets along with other dogs that are big, silly and goofy like him and can handle his style of play. Duke needs a feline and small mammal free home as he may get the urge to chase them. Duke will need a detached home where his serenading of passersby won’t be an issue! Stubbs is a 5 year-old, neutered male, gray and white Domestic Shorthair cat

who love to be pet everywhere! He was brought to the Ottawa Humane Society as a stray on December 26, 2012 and is now available for adoption. This unique cat has a cute little stub of a tail, like a bunny. He gets along with anyone with an empty lap, or lonely-looking windowsill! He’s been patiently waiting in the Adoption Centre for someone to come scoop him up and take him home so he can offer all his kitty love. Stubbs is a “Special Needs” adoption as he will require a special diet due to possible underlying inflammatory bowel disease.

PET OF THE WEEK

Visit the OHS website at www. ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00am7:00pm and Saturdays 10:00am-5:00pm.

De-skunking your dog soda; and 1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing soap. Wearing rubber gloves, wash your dog with this solution as soon as possible. Don’t get the solution in the dog’s eyes. (If you don’t have peroxide, baking soda, and liquid soap on hand, use vinegar diluted with water.) Don’t save this mixture or make it ahead of time, as the mixture could explode if left in a bottle. Rub the mixture through the dog’s fur, but don’t leave it on too long (peroxide can bleach fur). Rinse thoroughly. Next, wash your dog with pet shampoo and rinse thoroughly. By now, he should be de-skunked and smelling sweet. Thoroughly towel-dry your dog, and be sure to place him in a warm, sunny room for the next couple of hours so that he doesn’t get chilled. He should also have a large dry towel on which to lie down. If you dog has long fur, you may need to use a hair dryer to dry his fur. If your dog rubbed some of the stink onto you, you can rid your clothes of the smell by using regular laundry detergent mixed with a half-cup of baking soda.

Pip

Pip is a little brown tabby, and Vanier resident. She is approximately eighteen years old but was a Humane Society rescue so her mom and dad aren’t quite sure how old she is. Even though she’s getting up there in years, Pip enjoys a hearty meal and will squeak to remind you that she’s hungry. Hobbies include resting on the heating vent and resting on the audio receiver.

Skunks are everywhere—in the country and in the city. The Ottawa Humane Society has received several skunksighting phone calls lately from Ottawa residents wanting to know more about these smelly creatures and looking for advice on how to get the skunk smell out of their dog’s coat. If your dog gets sprayed, there are ways to get rid of the scent without using your entire ketchup (or tomato juice) supply to do it. If you don’t have time to head to the store for over-thecounter odour-remover products, try the following at home remedy provided by the Humane Society of the United States (www.humanesociety.org): While you prepare the de-skunking solution, keep your dog outside so he doesn’t carry the smell into your house. Check his eyes; if they’re irritated or red, immediately flush them with cool water. Mix together: a half-litre of three-percent hydrogen peroxide (available at your local pharmacy) ; 1/4 cup baking

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 2, 2013

Kids start their run at last year’s ‘Goode Run in Osgoode. Organizers are hoping to increase participation this year.

Running for a ’Goode cause O-YA run expands options for runners Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Pacers, partnerships and pledge forms are making the third annual Goode Run more appealing than ever for runners of all skill levels. The charity run on Saturday, May 11, is the largest fundraising event for the Osgoode Youth Association, and last year attracted about 400 people who walked and ran two, five and 10-kilometre routes on Osgoode’s multi-use pathway. This year, event organizers are raising the bar with professional elements like learn-torun clinics leading up the big day and pacers for the five and 10-kilometre routes. “There are people running the race that are more committed to improving their runs and making a certain time, and we had that request (for pacers) from a few people last year,” said Nicole McKerracher, executive director of O-YA. McKerracher and event or-

ganizer Heather Roe partnered with several elite runners from Good Guys Tri, a non-profit group that uses running events to support charitable causes. Several Good Guys members visited one of the weekly learn-to-run clinics hosted throughout March and April, and they will return as pacers on May 11. For the first time, runners can also collect pledges for their run, which McKerracher hopes will add a few thousand dollars to their fundraising total. In past years only sponsorship money and registration costs were collected. Still, every dollar counts, McKerracher said. “Because the run is entirely volunteer-led, 100 per cent of the money goes back into OYA,” she said. This year has been particularly challenging without funding from United Way, she added. “2013 is the first year the United Way hasn’t put out a call for proposals in years,

so that was a hard hit for us. That is a challenge all across the board for all of our programs.” Any money raised at the run - they’re hoping for about $25,000 - will be used to pay staff, keep the doors open and finance programs. Pledges or not, McKerracher said they won’t meet their goal if registrations don’t pick up soon. They are hoping for 500 participants, and so far they only have about 200 people registered, she said. “It’s always an exciting event here at O-YA,” she said, adding that the run is a great community event. “There’s a really excited buzz around the centre on race day.” A family two-kilometre run/walk begins in front of the youth centre on Osgoode Main Street at 9 a.m. along with the 10-km walk, which is new this year. The five and 10-km runs begin together at 10 a.m. To register visit www. o-ya.ca. For pledge forms email McKerracher at o-yacentre@rogers.com.
