News - The city is considering whether partnering with a company is the best way to get a new recreational facility built in Riverside South. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches has been championing the idea of studying a public-private partnership for

a new rec centre, which got the finance and economic development committee’s nod on May 6. The centre would be a larger, district-level recreational facility that would serve the larger area, including Leitrim and Greely. The area will become home to thousands more people before the city gets around to building the rec centre, which is in the community design plan for the area, Desrroches

said. “It’s still several years out. We’re seeing a situation where the growth is putting pressure on existing facilities,” he said. “This is a way I think we can get going on a facility sooner rather than later,” the councillor said. A recreational facility of that scale could cost more than $60-million See CITY, page 6

News - No one was injured in a truck fire that stopped rush hour traffic on Mitch Owens Road May 6. A truck hauling a fifth wheel trailer filled with four horses and a dog burst into flames, but the driver and fourlegged passengers were able to make it to safety and watched from the MacEwen’s gas station on the corner of Albion Road and Mitch Owens. “The only injury was a dog with singed fur,” Ottawa Fire Services spokesperson Marc Messier said. “EMS (emergency medical services) treated the dog.” The fire department doesn’t investigate single-vehicle fires, so there’s no official cause, but Messier said

there have been cases of oil on a car’s manifold or overheated brakes causing a vehicle to burst into flames. “The truck was a complete loss and the trailer was significantly damaged,” Messier said. Smoke billowed out from the burning truck and was visible from the Rideau Carleton Raceway. Police were on scene and had closed Mitch Owens from Stagecoach Road to Bank Street. Traffic was being redirected through the parking lot of the MacEwen’s. The road was reopened once it was cleared of the truck and the debris. Messier said it didn’t take long for firefighters to extinguish the blaze. They arrived on scene at 5:47 p.m. Messier estimates the damage to be approximately $50,000.

Major school bus company quits city Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - Despite the imminent departure of one of Ottawa’s largest school bus companies from the city, thousands of English public and Catholic school students won’t be stranded come September, says the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority. Stock Transportation, which has operated in the region for at least 23 years, and the authority couldn’t come to an agreement late last month on a second one-year extension of a five-year contract. The authority manages contracts on behalf of school boards, which, in turn, receive funding from Ontario’s Ministry of Education. The authority offered a twoper-cent increase for English public school busing services and no increase for Catholic transportation. But Stock asked for a nearly seven-per-cent increase for the upcoming school year to “attract and retain the best possible professional school bus drivers,” said Molly Hart, Chicago-based spokeswoman for

National Express Corporation, which owns Stock Transportation. The authority refused, and the bus company served its 280 Ottawa staff, including support staff, safety and maintenance personnel and 265 drivers, on May 5 with layoff notices effective June 30. “Minimum wage in Ontario is increasing by seven per cent alone and the gap between minimum wage and the wage paid to our Ottawa drivers has been shrinking steadily over the past several years,” Hart said. “And our drivers would have received a substantial increase had we been able to reach an agreement.” The increase would also have helped offset the costs of purchasing, operating, maintaining and fuelling the buses, Hart said, noting a 51-per-cent hike in gas prices in Canada since 2009, and a 25-per-cent spike in the purchase price of new buses in the last 10 years. “The operating environment in Ottawa has become too challenging due to the severe disconnect between what operators require to deliver service and what the Ottawa Student

Transportation Association can pay for these services,” Hart said, adding that though Stock is closing up shop in Ottawa in June, the company is not shutting the door completely on future business opportunities in the city. After Stock declined the offer, the transportation authority signed contracts with three new operators which will take over Stock’s 193 routes. Direct Transportation Logistics will provide wheelchair buses, Roxborough Bus Lines will transport students in Osgoode and Metcalfe, and take on routes in Orléans, while Campeau Bus Lines will take on 111 routes in central and eastern Ottawa and Barrhaven. The authority has also resigned First Student Canada to provide school buses on another 350 routes. Stock’s departure shouldn’t worry parents of children on the affected routes, said Vicky Kyriaco, general manager of the transportation authority. “We are working well with Stock and the operators to transition as many drivers from Stock’s employ to the new op-

erators, so in September we expect that the same driver will be operating the same route,” she said. “It’ll just be a different name on the bus.” The authority’s initial contract extension offer was for two per cent (for one year) and that reflects the (Ontario government’s) grant for student needs,” said Kyriaco. That increase was available from the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, though “they’re still in a deficit situation,” she said, adding there was no increase available through the Ottawa Catholic School Board. “So we have some financial limitations that we have to operate within,” said Kyriaco, who declined to discuss contract details, citing confidentiality issues. But the association representing smaller, independent school bus operators says the Ministry of Education is creating instability in the industry, the reason why Stock should be applauded for walking away from the contract offer, and “finally saying, as a company, (that) we cannot operate in this market, these rates will

Stock Transportation won’t be running on 193 English public and Catholic school routes in the city in September. not allow us to run a safe operation,” said Karen Cameron, executive director of the Independent School Bus Operators Association, which has members in Ottawa. Smaller companies don’t have the ability to refuse the contracts. “These operators, if they walk away, they’ve committed suicide,” Cameron said. “They have one customer typically and it means their mortgage. The Ministry of Education has absolutely destabilized this industry to the point where it’s almost not even viable.” For the coming school year, the Ministry of Education is

providing “a projected transportation allocation of $883.5 million that includes a two-percent increase to help boards manage increased costs,” said ministry spokesperson Gary Wheeler. “This formula is used for all 72 boards across the province.” The Ministry of Education remains committed to helping school boards provide “safe, effective and efficient” busing for students, Wheeler said. But the fragility in the industry is about more than the bottom line, because it is jeopardizing student safety, Cameron said.

City needs to find willing partner for centre to build, Desroches said. “It’s a big-ticket item,” he said. Partnering with a private company also alleviates some of the ongoing budget pressure of operating a recreational facility, since the partner company helps take on that responsibility, he said. “If we want to try to deal with the pressures on our budgets, we should be looking at innovative ways to deliver city services,” he said. There are already three similar “P3” recreational facilities in Ottawa: the Bell Sensplex in Kanata, the Cavanagh Sensplex in West Carleton and the Richcraft Sensplex in the east end, set to open this August. The partnerships are innovative, Desroches said. They offer programming and ice availability from everything from little league ringette to men’s and women’s hockey leagues. Desroches said the city has seen success through those partnerships with the Capital Sports Management Group, which is owned by Senators Sports and Entertainment. But if the city chose to pursue a P3 to build a new rec centre, it would go through a competitive bidding process. “It’s a little early to identify a partner,” Desroches said. “I think we need to see if this is a concept that has viability. I think it does. Given the success we’ve seen in other areas, the model should work in south Ottawa.”

It’s unlikely the city would find a partner willing to help fund building a pool, which is a costly endeavour, Desroches said. The facility would likely have at least two ice rinks – or more, if the partner company was willing to put up the money. The city hasn’t made detailed plans of what the facility could include. Residents in the community – especially fellow hockey parents – have been asking Desroches about when a new facility might be coming. The area’s development is now at a stage where the need is becoming more urgent, Desroches said. “The goal is really to build a community that’s sustainable, (so) that we have the services and the facilities within the community so that people don’t have to travel outside the community to do this,” he said. “My first priority when I was elected was to deal with the roads and the transit and the bridge. Now it’s time to start on the next chapter, which is the recreational services.”

Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches is hoping for a new publicprivate partnership recreation centre for Riverside South – similar to this one, the Richcraft Sensplex, being built in the city’s east end. FILE

Hillcrest High’s enrolment declining To the editor:

An open letter sent to Bronwyn Funiciello, Ottawa public school board trustee for Rideau Rockliffe/ Alta Vista. I am writing as a resident of Alta Vista and a retired teacher in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. I am dismayed by the rapid decline of Hillcrest High School. As you are aware, declining enrollment began five years ago when the school board changed the boundary restrictions. Staff at the school board would have been aware that Hillcrest was the largest

cross-boundary transfer school in the board and that it would be affected by the new rules. Since that time, Hillcrest has lost more than 600 students in spite of an easing of the catchment restrictions two or three years ago. The reputation of the school has been greatly damaged by this, and people are not registering at the school because there is the perception that something is wrong with it. Meanwhile, Canterbury High School has grown to the point that it is above capacity and has many portables. You are well aware that Can-

terbury became primarily an arts school because the area could not sustain two home schools which had originally been built to accommodate the baby boomers. Hillcrest and Canterbury coexisted happily for many years without any argument about boundaries. What you may not be aware of is the fact that for years, Hillcrest’s biggest feeder school was St. Patrick’s Intermediate School from the separate school board. I suspect that one of the major beneficiaries of the boundary rules would have been St. Pat’s High School as that would have been

many students’ second choice after Hillcrest. It seems to be an incredible waste of resources that a large building on which millions have been spent in the last few years ( windows, boilers) and which has one of the best soccer fields in the city, not to mention two gyms and a full-size auditorium, should be less than half-full while down the street, another school with lesser sports facilities, is bursting. Hillcrest has had to cut many programs and certainly has had to reduce its sports teams but it still has managed to maintain its academic standing in spite of public

perception. The Fraser Institute Report ( ironically) gave Hillcrest and Canterbury identical ratings. They both ranked 158/740 in the province. The school board seems reluctant to do anything to remedy the situation and make the obvious decision. The area cannot sustain two home schools any more than it could 30 years ago. If Hillcrest closes, where will 500 students go? The separate school board? Cathy Haley Alta Vista

The Bethany Hope Centre, the Youville Centre and Waupoos Family Farm are three local nonprofit organizations with two things in common. First, they are community organizations that focus on helping various at-risk groups in the Ottawa area. Second, they will be opening their doors to the public this year during Ottawa’s annual architectural exploration event, Doors Open Ottawa (DOO), taking place June 7 and 8 across the city. The Youville Centre, at 150 Mann Avenue in Sandy Hill, has been around for 27 years. It strives to help young mothers by providing a quality education, good nutrition, encouragement and support to both mother and child. “Our mandate is to motivate, educate and nurture,” says Heather Heagney, the centre’s Communication and Community Developer. To date, the centre has helped approximately 800 young mothers, serving 48 women at a time and seeing an annual graduating class that averages 20. But the Youville Centre doesn’t only serve mothers; it also offers weekly support groups and individual counselling for young fathers. This is the organization’s second year participating in Doors Open. It’s within close walking distance of other event participants such as the Embassy of Algeria, Diane A. Gagné Financial Services and Laurier House National Historic Site. Heagney says, “We want to increase our visibility in the Ottawa community so we’re inviting people to come and see the work that we’re doing.” ........ At its new location at 820 Woodroffe Avenue, the Bethany Hope Centre strives to help young women and their children who have both financial and educational challenges. Mainly supported by the Salvation Army, the centre’s community services focus on health, nutrition, early childhood development, education, counselling and practical supports. Major Brenda Coles, spokesperson for the Bethany Hope Centre, said: “It’s been a year since the centre relocated and we’re really proud of our new facility. We used to be on Wellington

Street in a 100-year-old building, and through the sale of that we were able to totally refit and renovate this new site into a place really designed for young parents and families.” The Bethany Hope Centre offers daily activities for kids as well as courses for mothers and fathers that help empower them as parents. This will be the first time the centre opens its doors for the annual event celebrating Ottawa’s historically, culturally, functionally, and architecturally significant buildings. Says Coles, “There’s lots of light and warmth, and that’s the first thing people will notice.” ........ Heading further south, the Waupoos Family Farm provides vacations for low-income families that are unable to afford a getaway. The farm’s parent organization, the Waupoos Foundation, originated in Picton in 1975, and was founded by Father Fred Magee and friends. The Oblate Family Farm facilities on Waupoos Island expanded to the Ottawa area in 1980, taking up residence at 2050 Rideau Road in the former municipality of Gloucester. The organization is a Christ-centred community integrating prayer, work, and play in activities while providing both full-week vacations and weekend breaks to families that meet the lowincome criteria. Lee-Ann Garcia, who works at the farm, said: “We have a lot to offer. We organize bingo nights, movie nights, game nights, crafts and wagon rides for the families. Doors Open coincides with our summer kick-off, so that weekend we’ll have lots of activities planned and the farm animals will be out for the public to enjoy.” Now in its 13th consecutive year, Doors Open Ottawa welcomes the public to visit 130 buildings for free during the two-day event. Either guided or self-guided tours will be offered at each building, and representatives will be present to answer any questions. Environmentally friendly transportation options are available. The free Doors Open Ottawa Shuttle Bus, sponsored by the Ottawa Citizen, will travel within proximity of nearly 50 sites, and Ottawa Cycling Tours is offering guided and self-guided Doors Open Ottawa themed tours. It will be a weekend full of discovery! R0012697800-0515

It’s your social responsibility

S

ha-la-la-la-la-la/Live for today And don’t worry/‘bout tomorrow Hey, hey, hey If you’re old enough to remember that 1967 song by The Grassroots, and lived by its ideals, there’s a good chance that you’re now neck deep in your own personal retirement crisis. For a host of reasons, the majority of baby boomers failed to plan adequately for their retirement. Just to make ends meet, many seniors are now working well past age 65. Across Canada, the median senior exists on far less than $30,000 a year. It’s even more troubling that the next generation of Ontarians can’t get past today’s financial obligations to set a little aside for a secure tomorrow. They’re paying off student loans or paying for child care or looking after their parents. There simply is no extra money for a nest egg. Because so many more of us are living well past 65, retirement in Ontario is about to explode into a full-scale financial crisis. Almost 1.3 million workers have no workplace pension. Almost all of Ontario’s new jobs are being created by small businesses that don’t offer a pension plan for employees. At the same time, many Ontarians just aren’t saving for retirement. Experts say you need 50-70

per cent of your pre-retirement income to maintain your standard of living – but many Ontarians can’t or won’t meet this target. The bigger cause for concern is that we’re sticking our heads in the sand and pretending it isn’t happening. Employers and workers must be encouraged to take responsibility for their financial futures. Government and business agree that fixing Ontario’s pension problem is a priority. But to do that, the system has to change. The Canadian Association of Retired Persons is calling on Ontario to make workplace pension plans mandatory. We couldn’t agree more. The business community overwhelmingly favours the introduction of pooled registered pension plans to Ontario workplaces and we think that’s the right way to go. Both employers and employees contribute to the plans, that are managed by independent financial professionals. They should follow a working Ontarian from job to job. Inadequate financial preparedness should be socially taboo. We need our young people to buy into the idea of retirement planning. They say that in life, the only sure things are death and taxes. But Ontarians should be able to count on a healthy pension after a lifetime of working hard and contributing to society.

Bidding a fond farewell to an Ottawa institution

L

et’s embarrass Jay Stone completely and call him an Ottawa institution. That’s my excuse for writing about a longtime friend, retiring after more than 40 years in daily newspapers. To clarify: “Ottawa institution� doesn’t mean bad Ottawa institution, like the Senate or Lenny the Lynx; it means good Ottawa institution, like beavertails or the Mayfair Theatre. Jay has been writing about movies in the Citizen for the last 20 years. His stuff has been consistently smart, funny and entertaining and readers are going to miss it when he retires at the end of this month. Ottawa is full of people who, although they may never have met Jay personally, want to see what he says about a movie before they decide to go see it. In any city, a critic has influence. A good review can bring people out to see a movie or buy a book; a bad review can sink a restaurant or a play. Good critics are aware of their power and use it wisely. Bad ones just want to make a reputation. Good critics have a love for their subject, be it food, literature, drama or film. Bad critics have a love for themselves.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town It goes without saying that Jay Stone is a good critic and has been ever since he started writing about movies full-time in 1994. I think that what distinguishes his writing, and makes him the best in the country, is that he has never lost his enthusiasm for movies. Most critics inevitably tire of the thing they write about. They get so that they have read too many books, seen too many movies. Everything bores them. They become obsessed with technique – with camera angles, set design, whatever – and they lose the ability to react emotionally to a moving story, to laugh at a funny line. Reading their stuff, you can almost see them dragging themselves out of bed in the morning, dreading the prospect of seeing another damn movie.

You don’t get that from Jay, never have. I can bet you that when you read his last review in a couple of weeks it will be fresh, it will be respectful without being gushy and it will show a real effort to come to grips with what the filmmaker was trying to do. (Aside to Jay: don’t let me down on this.) Having a respect for movies should not be confused with loving all movies uncritically. Stone devotees always look forward to his one-star reviews, where he unleashes the full range of his considerable comic scorn on a movie that truly deserves it. But, interestingly, there are not many of those, just as there are not many five-star reviews – just a handful over the years. He reserves the onestars for the truly awful and the five-stars for the truly great. The great majority of movies are neither. By the way, early on Jay didn’t use stars, thinking that they oversimplified matters. The star system was imposed on him from on high, to his discomfort, but it at least gives his readers the opportunity to savour the fives and the ones. For Jay, respecting a movie means that you approach it on its own terms. If it’s a summer big-explosion movie, you don’t dismiss it because you don’t like big explosions.

Instead you try to figure out whether it’s a good explosion movie or not. Does it succeed in what it’s trying to do? The same goes for rom-coms or Iranian art films. Famously, Jay gave four stars to the 1994 movie, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, because, in his mind, it succeeded in what it was trying to do, whatever that was. Less famously, he has, on rare occasions, aimed genuine anger at movies he considers exploitive and dishonest. He has served the movies well and, more important, his readers. What the heck: five stars.

Help the environment: stop protesting pipelines

I

f you’ve been following the headlines lately, you may know that there has been a lot of public protest against TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline. The Council of Canadians spent several weeks in April touring northern communities and holding public forums under the catchy title “Our risk, their reward.” The idea is that Canadians are meant to risk the environment for oil that will ultimately end up being shipped abroad. The Council of Canadians, however, is leading us astray. Every time their employees send a text message on their cellphones or travel by bus to a Northern Ontario community, they are undermining their own cause. Using computers, printing posters, wearing clothing, purchasing office furniture – these are all things that are manufactured abroad. And guess what? Canada can and should provide that oil to make the goods as long we Canadians continue to buy them. I recently interviewed Grant Smith, chief executive officer at Braemar Adjusting in Calgary, for a national magazine

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse article on the subject. He points out that, with 95 billion barrels of oil consumed globally each day, the world has a growing and insatiable thirst for hydrocarbons. “Everybody wants the oil and gas community to provide the hydrocarbons and the stuff we need, and people aren’t really reducing consumption of those products, no matter how green they are,” he told me. “Yet our infrastructure is getting older and we’re using green argument to block the construction of new pipelines.” It’s generally agreed within the industry, itself, that pipelines are the safest means of transporting oil and gas. Could they be safer? Yes. The technology exists to make pipelines out of stainless steel that would be less prone to corrosion. The technology exists

to double wrap pipelines so if there is a leak, it wouldn’t be devastating. But we would all, as consumers, have to be willing to pay for that at the gas pump, when we purchase food, when we buy all the things that have become necessary to our every day existence. Do you want to see your grocery bill quadruple? Are you willing to pay $150 per litre to fuel your car? Can you stomach higher bus fares and more expensive technology? In the meantime, Canada’s pipeline infrastructure is aging. Pipelines take a long time to construct. The longer we delay the construction of new pipelines, the more potential for incidents and not just in pipelines. Oil and gas companies will get their product to market as long as there is demand for

the product. If pipelines aren’t available – and even if they are -- they will use rail infrastructure (also aging) and marine transport, including across the Great Lakes, to get that product to market. When I see people protesting pipelines for the sake of the environment, I want to whack them over the head with a palm leaf. Canadians should have a say about where the pipelines are going and whether the environment is a topmost concern, but unless they’re willing to go live in mud huts as subsistence farmers they should be working in collaboration with the oil and gas companies, not simply protesting. Energy companies spend an extensive amount of time and money to monitor, report and repair their existing infrastructure. They take risk management incredibly seriously. They also take the environment seriously. They are held to strict regulatory standards – one of the reasons there has been an increase in pipeline incidents over the past decade is because of more extensive monitoring and reporting. Energy companies also have

a lot of capital. It could be argued they are best positioned to innovate in the area of green energy. They are continually investing in fuel efficiency testing, for one. But they are also spending good sums of money to examine alternatives to the hydrocarbons for which we all thirst. If we’d like to see the end of pipelines, it’s going to take a paradigm shift in our

consumer culture to do that. If you don’t believe me, see if you can find out how much energy it takes to create your mobile phone, from mining in Africa to manufacturing in China. In the meantime, as friends of the environment, we need to stop protesting something that has the potential to make oil and gas transport safer than it is currently.

Hillcrest grad wins Oscar for Disney’s Frozen Ottawa South News staff

ERIN MCCRACKEN/METROLAND

Premier Kathleen Wynne puts up her dukes after being presented with a pair of pink boxing gloves from taekwondo martial artists training next door to Ottawa-South MPP John Fraser’s bank Street campaign office on May 7.

Premier draws battle lines on election trail Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - Though she didn’t put on a pair of pink boxing gloves she was presented with until after her speech, Premier Kathleen Wynne came out swinging during her first stop in Ottawa on the first day on the provincial election campaign trail. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Ontario New Democratic Party leader Andrea Horwath and Ontario Progressive Conservative Party leader Tim Hudak were her primary targets on May 7, when she helped Liberal MPP John Fraser launch his campaign for re-election at his Ottawa-South riding headquarters at 1652 Bank St. Under the Liberals’ jobs and growth plan, Wynne said she will invest in skills and training, transit, and infrastructure to build and renovate schools and hospitals, roads and bridges. “And Stephen Harper doesn’t like it, but we will create our own provincial pension plan to ensure that Ontario workers can enjoy a secure retirement,” Wynne said, before dozens of supporters, including Ottawa WestNepean MPP Bob Chiarelli, Ottawa-Centre

MPP Yasir Naqvi, Ottawa-Vanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur and Marie-France Lalonde, Liberal candidate for Ottawa-Orléans. “I think it’s what the people of Ontario deserve after they have worked hard, to be able to expect a decent retirement security,” Wynne said. The premier and Fraser both applauded former premier and long-time Ottawa-South MPP Dalton McGuinty, who did not attend the campaign launch. “It’s a riding with such a rich history of representatives that we can all be proud of, especially Dalton McGuinty,” Wynne said. Fraser, who won the riding in a byelection 10 months ago, said he is extremely proud of “what we accomplished together,” including expansions to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and Ottawa Hospital, improved transit, stronger schools and mental health and addiction programs. “By any objective measure we are light years ahead of where we were,” Fraser said. Wynne said Ontario needs a leader who is prepared to go “toe to toe” with the prime minister on issues such as economic development in northern Ontario and being shortchanged on federal transfer payments.

“The people of Ontario need to ask themselves, will Tim Hudak stand up for Ontario if it means having to stand up to Stephen Harper?” said Wynne, adding that Hudak can’t be trusted to confront the prime minister when they share many of the same values, ideals and policies. A vote on June 12 for Fraser and Wynne would mean a vote for “jobs and growth, so it’s easier for people to buy a house and pay the bills and save for post-secondary education,” she said, warning Ontarians that a vote for Hudak would result in cutbacks that “would lead to a low-wage, low-growth future.” The premier also blasted the New Democratic Party for not having a job plan. “They have no answer to the big questions about economic recovery. They are literally making it up,” Wynne said. Calling Wynne’s plan “fair, practical and balanced,” Fraser said it would lead to “jobs and a strong economy, a world-class healthcare system that will be there when you need it, investing in infrastructure so we can keep our economy and our families moving, and support for our seniors – the very people who built this community.”

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 15, 2014

May 5 to 11. “Jails and prisons are not therapeutic and yet, for many, it’s the only and fastest way that they can get access to psychiatric services. And police would rather take someone to jail than an emergency room because they’re so poorly treated in emergency rooms.” Stuart has been working since the late 1990s to reduce stigma levelled against people with mental illness and to break down barriers which prevent many from seeking help. She is the first person in the world to hold Bell Canada’s mental health and anti-stigma research chair. Through this initiative, which launched in February 2012, the company is donating $1 million over five years to allow Stuart to research ways to reduce stigma, as well as hire research assistants and arrange for experts to speak at conferences on this issue. Through her work, the professor has identified that people with mental illness, and their families, are often stigmatized by the very people who are supposed to be treating and supporting them. “We all stigmatize. We’re all socially hardwired to do it,” she said. Prejudice and discrimination limits the efforts of healthcare professionals, restricts quality of patient care and interferes with the patient’s ability to recover, said Stuart. Some patients have reported that their therapist didn’t shake their hand, introduce themselves or even look them in the face. “This is interpreted as a dehumanizing experience,” Stuart said, adding there is also stigma in hospital emergency rooms. “I can see them rolling their eyes,” she said, relating the experiences of patients. “You know, when you close that curtain, I’m crazy, I’m not

Heather Stuart, Queen’s University professor, holds the world’s first mental health and anti-stigma research chair, funded by Bell Canada. deaf. I can hear what you’re saying. “‘Get that psycho out of my emergency room’ – stories like this,” Stuart said. These barriers are the reason why there needs to be more collaboration among health-care workers, more data and evidence-based research to spur policy makers to fund mental-health research and anti-stigma programs. There are also smaller things that can be done to make a difference, such as remembering that people with mental illness are people, and focusing on a person’s ability rather than their disability, she said. Mental health-care professionals should also be more self-critical in order to better understand their patients and work past their prejudices. “I think if everybody does one little thing, it’ll make a huge difference over time,” Stuart said. Her message resonated with Tim Simboli, executive direc-

tor of the Ottawa branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association. “People who know me know that I believe in pausing and reflecting and looking in the mirror and seeing that none of us is so good that we can’t be better,” he told the crowd of about 100 people, many of them health-care professionals. “We work on the side of the angels, I like to say. We care for the plus-ones of the world, if you would, but I think we also need to check ourselves and see what we do.” It’s important for healthcare providers to reflect on the work they do, said Simboli, because “I suspect that this stuff is insidious. It sneaks into us. “I think that the power in our speech, the power in our strategies, the power in our knowledge – we really need to tap into that and make sure that we’re on side with all of this.

Rain barrel sale fosters green thinking, community engagement Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

ERIN MCCRACKEN/METROLAND

Charles Billington, executive director of the Manotick-based Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation, checks for rain drops in hopes of filling his empty rain barrel. The foundation is partnering with the Riverside South Community Association to sell rain barrels to the public and raise awareness about and funds for both their organizations.

Community - Like a single rain drop, one person can make a difference, one rain barrel at a time. “You’re helping your family and being a bit of a community leader,” said Charles Billington, executive director of the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation, which is the fundraising arm of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. The foundation approached the Riverside South Community Association and together they are working with RainBarrel.ca to sell rain barrels to residents. The association and foundation receive $10, which they split, from each sale of the $55 recycled pickle barrels. Since the foundation became involved with RainBarrels.ca in 2012, it has generated $870 through the initiative. “Although this is not a major fundraiser, it really helps with getting people to hear about the work we do and understand rain barrels and feel good about us and our local partner,” Billington said. It’s a perfect fit for both the conservation authority and the community association, they say.

The authority’s mandate includes conservation education and special projects, such as tree-planting and improvement of the Rideau River watershed, which extends halfway to Kingston. The not-for-profit community group, which hosts a number of Riverside South events through the year, felt the time was right to become involved, in hopes of fostering involvement in the community and association. “The rain barrel sale is but a small example of how this year as an association we’re trying to do things differently, and to appeal to a broader network in the community,” said association president Chris Hill. “It kind of hits all the key elements of what one would expect of a community association in terms of environmental friendliness, in terms of water conservation, in terms of offering a product at a discounted price to our residents,” he said. The community group will use the rain barrel funds to help pay for local Canada Day festivities. The project also has several environmental benefits. Rain barrels play an important role in diverting rain water from picking up roadway contaminants and par-

ticles, including dog feces, and carrying them into the storm-water and sewer system, which is sometimes overwhelmed with too much runoff, Billington explained. That untreated overflow goes into the Ottawa River. And, when the water is allowed to percolate through layers of grass, rock and dirt, it helps clean these layers of contaminants, the director said, adding the rainwater also replenishes the water table. “This is obviously one way people can help protect themselves,” Billington said. “It just sort of makes natural sense.” Collected rain can be used on the yard, and flower and vegetable gardens, which would have helped during last summer’s outdoor water ban, and helps keep the water bill down, Hill said. “I can’t help but get over the fact that from time to time I water my grass with drinking water,” he added. To purchase a rain barrel by the May 23 deadline, visit rainbarrel. ca/riversidesouthconservation. Only barrels ordered in advance are guaranteed during pickup on May 31, from 10 a.m. to noon, at Claudette Cain Park, located on River Road, just north of Earl Armstrong Road.

place. The First Line-Prince of Wales roundabout is being built in addition to a larger, four-legged roundabout at the Prince of Wales and Bankfield. GREENBANK REALINGMENT

The roundabouts are part of a larger plan to realign Greenbank Road sometime after 2031, but the study was expanded south to the Prince of Wales corridor to account for the impact of residents coming to approximately 1,800 new homes in the Minto Mahogany development. The study looked at how to accommodate new development planned for the expanded urban boundary in the area. Engineers recommended the extension of a realigned Greenbank Road as a fourlane arterial road from Cambrian Road to Barnsdale Road, including pedestrian and cycling facilities. The plan would also see the southwest Transitway extended on the median of Greenbank Road from Cambrian to a terminal station and park-and-ride lot located on the east side of Greenbank, north of Barnsdale Road. The chosen alignment, which is straight, makes it compatible with the street-grid pattern that’s planned for new communities along the corridor. The city’s plans indicate a preference for a more “urban” street pattern of a grid, as opposed to the old style of curving suburban streets and cul-de-sacs. Barnsdale would get cycling facilities between where it currently intersects with Greenbank and where the future alignment would be located, to the east. Greenbank’s intersections at Barnsdale and Prince of Wales would be improved. The city would have to acquire 11.1 additional hectares of property along the route to make the plan work. The entire project would cost an estimated $61 million if it was built today, but the cost in the future will be higher.

News - The city’s transportation committee has given weight to the Manotick Village and Community Association’s concerns about short-term thinking fouling up a plan to ease the travel of north-south traffic on First Line and Prince of Wales. The committee directed city staff to consider building a roundabout to connect First Line Road to Prince of Wales Drive sooner than 2031 – which is the earliest the city planned to build it – instead of installing a traffic light at First Line and Bankfield Road as a short-term solution to improve traffic flow. The community association agrees that the long-term plan to add a new, threelegged roundabout to connect First Line

Road to Prince of Wales Drive south of Bankfield Road would improve traffic flow in the area. But a short-term solution already on the books could be a “fly in the ointment,” said association president Klaus Beltzner. As early as 2015, the city plans to budget money for a new traffic signal where First Line currently meets Bankfield. That would solve the short-term problem of getting people from First Line Road to Bankfield in order to connect with Prince of Wales to continue on their journey north. But the traffic signal would eventually need to be taken out after 2031, when the roundabout is planned to be built as part of a larger project to re-align Greenbank Road. Spending money on that traffic signal now just means the city farther away from the long-term solution it wants: the roundabout, Beltzner told the transportation committee on May 7. “Implementing the signalization first is not part of the plan and would have to be removed at a later date,” Beltzner said. “That actually has potential to make the problem worse.” His argument got a boost in the form of a motion from Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt. The committee supported Moffatt’s plan to ask city staff to look at advancing the construction of the First LinePrince of Wales roundabout by re-allocating the money for the traffic signal to the roundabout project. Moffatt also asked city staff to consider the impact on Viewbank Road, which could be seen as a convenient cutthrough for motorists if they are stuck in traffic on the new Greenbank Road. “(Viewbank) is not much more than just a little path through the rural area,” Moffatt said. “We need to discourage that cutthrough.” Staff was directed to consult with residents on that street to see what types of traffic mitigation measure could be put in

City considers fewer buses on Scott detour Moving proposed pathway south of Scott also being considered Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city will look for ways to reduce the number of buses detoured onto Scott and Albert streets during light-rail construction set to begin next year The new willingness to consider other options comes after months of lobbying by frustrated residents in Mechanicsville, Hintonburg and Dalhousie, who say that two years of buses passing by every 20 seconds is unacceptable. The city and its light-rail constructor, the Rideau Transit Group, intend to move

2,500 buses a day onto the Scott-Albert corridor while the Transitway is converted to light rail from 2015 to 2016. About half a dozen people delivered impassioned pleas to the transportation committee on May 7, saying the plan will not only create safety and liveability concerns for neighbours, it would also create longer commute times for transit users. They suggested splitting up the impact by moving some of the buses onto the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway instead, or even Carling Avenue. Thanks to a motion put forward on behalf of Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes,

the transportation committee will ask OC Transpo to look at those options and present the results of their review at upcoming open houses tentatively scheduled for June 9 and 10. At a recent Dalhousie Community Association annual general meeting, National Capital Commission CEO Mark Kristmanson said the city and Rideau Transit Group hadn’t approached the NCC about detouring buses onto its parkway, but Kristmanson would be open to that conversation. Cheryl Parrott of the Hintonburg Community Association said the willingness to finally listen to residents gave her some hope, but she wasn’t convinced the city or Rideau Transit Group would actually make any changes. “They’re there, but are

they actually listening? Are they taking into consideration what people have said?” Parrott asked. “I still have concerns that they haven’t, seeing the safety report that came forward from them.” The long-awaited pedestrian safety audit commissioned by Rideau Transit Group was a disappointment to Parrott. A light multi-use pathway from Bayview Road to Smirle Avenue is planned as an alternate route for cyclists and pedestrians, but Parrott said the path will end up being a tunnel surrounded by hoarding boards to protect it from surrounding construction. “They’re planning on putting it through a very isolated area, there are no eyes on it,” she said. “When we went through doing a safety audit with Women’s Initiatives for Safer Environments ... Everybody came to the same conclusion right away: this just can’t happen. It’s totally unsafe.” The community suggested in February that the path would be more accessible and safer if it was built on

the south side of the corridor, between Scott Street and the Tom Brown Arena. The transportation committee voted to have staff look at whether that option was feasible, but staff indicated there might be an additional cost above and beyond the $2.1-billion

change on June 9 and 10, I’m not totally convinced there will be,” she said. “The battle will continue.” Rideau Transit Group is also considering enlarging the buffer zone between the road and sidewalk and adding a fence or barrier.

light-rail contract. The committee will get an update and be asked to make a decision if the south-side pathway would cost more. Parrott said she suspects the pathway tweak might be the only improvement to the bus detours and pedestrian safety plan. “Whether there will be any

The transportation committee also voted to take the additional bus lanes on Scott and Albert out of service as soon as light rail starts running. After the transit system switches over, Scott Street is planned to be rebuilt as a “complete street” with room for bike lanes and wider sidewalks.

Arlene Dickinson headlines Entrepreneur Week event Julia Le

News - A “dragon” is spreading her wings and landing in Ottawa June 9 to impart some lessons learned about making it as an entrepreneur in today’s economy. Arlene Dickinson, best known for her role as one of five venture capitalists on CBC’s Dragon’s Den series, will be the headline speaker at the Breakfast Seminar Series, presented by Metroland Media Group. It takes place at the Brookstreet Hotel, 525 Legget Dr, Kanata from 7 to 9:30 a.m. Dickinson’s visit is among 10 stops she’ll make across Ontario as part of Entrepreneur Week, which runs from June 2-13. Joining Dickinson for this special event as the entrepreneur guest speaker is Jeff York, CEO of Farm Boy. York became the president and chief executive of Farm Boy in 2009. Prior to that, he spent 20 years as the president and chief operating officer of Giant Tiger Stores Ltd. Entrepreneurship Week celebrates the successes of local entrepreneurs as a community while encouraging others to be innovative to help fuel and drive the local economy. “The event is a celebration of Entrepreneurship Week and to showcase our community entrepreneurs and their contributions to our local economy. It is also a great opportunity to get a look into the success factors behind two amazing entrepreneurs - Arlene Dickinson and

Jeff York,” said Metroland East general manager Peter O’Leary. It is very important to take the time and recognize the contributions and innovations the entrepreneurs of Ottawa have brought to our community and economy. Not only are these amazing people building successful businesses but they give back O’Leary said local residents don’t have to look too far in Ottawa to see some amazing business success stories such as the Greenberg family and Minto, Cyril Leeder and the Ottawa Senators, Farm Boy, the Tommy and Lefebvre families, and the Myers, Mews family “to see what an impact a group of entrepreneurs have on the city we live in.” Dickinson, who is the CEO of the marketing firm Venture Communications with a staff of 75 in Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa, said she’s looking forward to meeting entrepreneurs in Ontario’s communities and speaking about how life and business are intertwined when you’re an entrepreneur. The 57-year-old, who travels back and forth between her Calgary and Toronto homes, said the notion of balance, is something of a fallacy. “Balance is very personal. It’s not about 50/50 and equal weight on personal and professional, it’s about doing what makes you happy,” she said, adding that being an entrepreneur is a lifestyle choice, not a career choice. “I’d say that happiness is a func-

tion of being able to live and be who you are.” PASSION FOR ENTREPRENEURISM

Dickinson found her calling and developed a passion for entrepreneurism at the age of 31 after getting married at 19 and raising four children. Through hard work and perseverance, the author of Persuasion and All In said she’s been able to overcome numerous challenges that have helped shape her as a business person. Her success and leadership has been recognized with multiple honours and awards including: Canada’s Most Powerful Women Top 100, the Pinnacle Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence, as well as PROFIT and Chatelaine’s TOP 100 Women Business Owners. She is also chief executive of YouInc.com, a company she founded in 2012 that is dedicated to serving and investing in entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial lifestyle. “A lot of what I’ve learned is through the school of hard knocks,” said Dickinson, who never received a university education, but has learned about business by taking risks and figuring out how to recover from the failure and mistakes she’s made along the way. LEARNING FROM MISTAKES

Mistakes, she said, aren’t fatal, as

“Self-doubt can play a huge role in your ability to succeed, so if you believe in something you have to stick to it. You have to be resilient,” said Dickinson, noting that to be successful as an entrepreneur you also have to navigate the roadblocks along the way and accept that you’ll face a lot of rejection. Dickinson is a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal recipient, an honourary captain of the Royal Canadian Navy and is the recipient of honourary degrees from Mount Saint Vincent University, Saint Mary’s University and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. “Having Arlene Dickinson partner with us provides our readers and customers the opportunity to experience her live or read about her on our website our community newspapers,” said O’Leary. Our brand and goal is to be connected to our communities and Arlene allows us to showcase some of the people and entrepreneurs of Ottawa by lending her time, name, and brand. Her commitment to the time in Ottawa also places a spotlight on those entrepreneurs in our community that deserve so many thanks for what they do.” Tickets to the breakfast seminar series cost $90 plus HST.

Kristina Groves inducted into Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame Sports - Five more names were added to a list of accomplished, proud Ottawa athletes and sports figures on May 7 at city hall. Among them was south Ottawaraised Kristina Groves, a former speed skater. The names were added to the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame at the official induction ceremony. Groves was joined by football player Wayne Giardino, sports writer Tom Casey, sledge hockey player Todd Nicholson and touch football icon Ed Laverty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love celebrating the sports icons and special moments in sports history,â&#x20AC;? said hall of fame board chairman Dave Best. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One way is by inducting new members every year.â&#x20AC;? He thanked all of the athletes for making their city proud, and being great leaders in sport. Many alumni of the hall of fame were present for the ceremony, and helped present the plaques to each of the award winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see so many of our alumni,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Jim Watson, who also recognized football player Moe Racine, alumni, on his induction into the CFL Hall of Fame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inductees, you are certainly deserving of the honour; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re burst-

In 2010, he was elected to the International Paralympic Committee Athletes Council in 2010, and became the chairman in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It never stopped me from believing in my goals and dreams I had as a kid,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I had my accident, I thought my dreams were over. But I still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let that stop me from my goals. I just had to change the ways I played a bit. I sky dive, I scuba dive, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done every sport you can possibly imagine. Hockeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what took me the furthest.â&#x20AC;? He said he will always be involved with Paralympic sport by helping and encouraging others to play and get involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had so much support, from the community, from family, from friends,â&#x20AC;? he said.

ing with pride. You brought a sense of pride to the entire city, and for that, we are eternally grateful. Thank you for the commitment to your craft, to your sport, and to your city.â&#x20AC;? Watson was presented with the game ball that the RedBlacks will use in their first ever game by Ottawa Sports of Entertainment Groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bernie Ashe, which will be used in opening kick off in July and donated to the hall. The evening was MC-ed by Ken Evraire, former CFL player. GIARDINO

Almonte resident Wayne Giardino was the first of the inductees introduced. Giardino played at Florida State University and joined the CFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa Rough Riders from 1967 to 1975. He played corner linebacker, defensive half, fullback and also joined in on the special teams. He was one of the last Canadian players to ever start on both offence and defence. Giardino still holds the CFL record for most yards, and most touchdowns on fumble recoveries. He later coached the Jr. Ottawa Sooners and was the Ottawa Gee-Gees defensive coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The glory days. In my opinion, the glory days were the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s. I did pretty well in those glory

Todd Nicholson started playing sledge hockey after he lost the use

of his legs in a car crash. Not letting his confinement to a wheelchair slow him down, he got involved in sledge hockey. He captained the Canadian menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sledge hockey team, and won a bronze medal at the Lillehammer Paralympics, silver in Nagano, and capped it off with a gold medal in Torino. He has also won eight world cham-

Tom Casey was known by many of the people at the induction, not as a teammate, but still, often as an ally. Casey, now an OrlĂŠans resident, was a longtime Ottawa Citizen writer. He had a 39-year-career, travelling around the country to cover Ottawa s professional teams. He covered the Rough Riders, and before the Senators, the Canadiens. See SPEED, page 22

Speed skater joined by four others in induction Continued from page 21

In the off season, he covered amateur sports, including four Olympic Games. Casey thanked his family, especially his wife, for putting up with his constant travel to pursue his passion of being a sportswriter. Casey was named to the Football Writers of Canada Hall of Fame in 2004. LAVERTY

Ed Laverty was inducted to the awards for being a community builder. Laverty has worked for the development and growth of touch football for years, and been a player, administrator, leader, and ambassador. He helped build the Ottawa Nepean Touch Football League, which has now grown to more than 1,900 men and women. During his acceptance speech, his daughter, Tammy Laverty, briefly took over the microphone from her humble father, and told the audience how hardworking and dedicated her father was – and reminding them that he also put in his time on the field as a player. She said he put his heart and soul into the game, and never looked for any recognition. He still continues to play on the same recreational team as his daughter.

GROVES

Brookfield High School graduate and speed skater Kristina Groves has won the Ottawa Sports Awards’ top female athlete so many times, they named the award after her. But Groves spoke about how she wasn’t always a top athlete – often finishing second in the twogirl pool in her Ottawa races. But she consistently improved, beating her own personal bests each season, and eventually went on to become a world champion and four-time Olympic medalist. “I could look at this one of two ways: I wonder a silver medal, or I was dead last,” she said. “It didn’t come to me naturally. And many people asked me why I stuck with it for so long… But it never occurred to me once.” Groves doesn’t live in Ottawa anymore, but said she still considers it home. Her parents, John and Else Groves, were in the audience to cheer on their daughter, now retired, and working on a master’s degree. “Eventually, that patience and that slow, steady progression is what came to define my career,” she said. “But all those years when I was toiling away, I loved it. I had so much fun.” When she retired, she had 34 individual World Cup medals.

Fifth Avenue safe crossing to be built this summer ‘Hybrid design’ to offer separate signal for pedestrians, cyclists and cars Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A new crosswalk and signal light will be installed at Fifth Avenue and Queen Elizabeth Drive this summer, adding an element of safety for pedestrians and cyclists looking to enjoy the Rideau Canal. The National Capital Commission announced the timeline at a community open house on May 6. The commission’s project manager Greg Kehoe said public comments were accepted until May 9, with shovels to be in the ground by June or July. “It’s going to be safer,” he said. During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane, with flagmen on either side to direct traffic. Construction should take around three to four weeks, Kehoe said. The event was held at the Canal Ritz, directly across from where the new signal light will be installed. Canal Ritz owner Kalil Saikaley was pleased the crosswalk and signal lights were coming. “I have been waiting for this for 15 years,” Saikaley said. “This is a big deal. Many people have been pushing for this for a long time.” The open house had a steady flow of resi-

dents checking out the new design and speaking with NCC staff. The goal of the morning event, NCC spokesman Cédric Pelletier said, was to get a feel for what residents like and want from the desired crosswalk. This crossing is a direct result of a NCCconducted Rideau Canal corridor pedestrian crossings study completed in 2011, based on community consultations held in 2010. Fourteen crossing areas were identified, with the NCC prioritizing four spots: Fifth Avenue on the Queen Elizabeth Driveway side of the canal, Hartwell Locks, Dow’s Lake and Clegg Street on the Colonel By Drive side. The most recent crossing complete was at Hartwell Locks, designated a priority crossing because of its proximity to the university, and was completed in late last year, at a cost of $300,000, which included four street lights and a pedestrian refuge island. The crossing on Colonel By Drive at Dow’s Lake was complete in 2013 and cost the NCC $350,000. It included a pedestrian crossing as well as improvement to the parking lot at Carleton University and the nearby roadway. Pedestrian and cycling crossing signs were placed at both spots. Designed by Morrison Hershfield, project manager Keith Dustin said this pedestrian crossing will be very different. The design is a hybrid of different types of crossing, something Dustin said that has yet to be constructed in the city.

Plan could expand to more local crossings Continued from page 24

JEFF MACKEY/METROLAND

Tea with mom

For the intersection at Fifth Avenue and Queen Elizabeth Driveway, the plans show there will be a signal for vehicle traffic to turn left as well as a separate crossing and light for pedestrians and cyclists. “There has been a lot of new ways to implement safety when it comes to crosswalks,” Dustin said. A signal light crossing, depending on needs at a particular site, can generally cost the city $75,000 to $100,000. So far, Pelletier said a cost analysis for this hybrid design is yet to be finalized. Glebe Community Association traffic committee chairman Brian Mitchell said he was very pleased with the timeline, but also hoped there could be more safe crossings added all along the Lansdowne Park corridor, to help distribute the cyclist and pedestrian traffic. Specifically, Mitchell said would like to see an additional crossing at Queen Elizabeth Drive, specifically one at the Bank Street Bridge and Queen Elizabeth Place. “We need a safe crossing at the south end of Lansdowne,” Mitchell said. According to the study, a crossing at that location was warranted, indicating options of creating a single lane roundabout or a splitter

island on the south side of the road, eliminating the southbound right turn lane. Currently, in addition to this crossing, the NCC said the next steps would be to create another safe crossing on the other side of the canal at Colonel By and Clegg -- the fourth designated priority crossing from the study. The study suggested either a pedestrian refuge island or a signalized crossing for the location. The NCC is working on the design for this crossing, however Kehoe said there is no funding available yet to construct the Clegg crossing. Kehoe said comments from residents, concerning Clegg, could help point out the necessity for safety on either side of the canal. “Support for it will help prioritize the crossing,” he said. Both the Fifth Avenue and the future Clegg Street crossing are being designed to connect to a future proposed footbridge over the canal at this location. The cost of the proposed footbridge is pegged at $17.5 million and currently the city has no plans to fund it’s portion of the project until 2020 or 2021. The NCC said it will move forward with the planned improvements at both road crossings ahead of any plans to build a pedestrian footbridge over the canal at this location.

Constable makes Manotick stop during second chance marathon Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Const. Andrew Rosbrook celebrated his second chance at life by starting an eightday trek from Ottawa to Toronto. Rosbrook was within sight of the finish line during last year’s annual spring marathon in Toronto when he collapsed. He woke up later at St. Michael’s hospital hours later to learn that he had suffered from cardiac arrest. It was the alarmed scream of a fellow runner as Rosbrook hit the ground that drew the attention of Det. Laurie McCann, handling traffic detail nearby. It took an off-duty physician, a paramedic and a paramedic in training to save his life. The paramedics were armed with a MIKEY defibrillator and administered the shock to the chest that started his heart after he had been without a pulse for five minutes. Rosbrook said after his second chance at life he wanted to do something worthwhile. “I think we need to raise awareness,” he said. “A MIKEY defibrillator saved my life. But a lot of people are afraid to use them. In my case I was dead so I couldn’t have been worse off.” Rosbrook is an avid runner, so he thought it would be apt to make his fundraiser a marathon that will end where he was supposed to finish the marathon a year ago. “The organizers of the Toronto marathon are going to give him a completion medal a year after the race,” Rosbrook’s mother Anita said. “We are very proud of him. He is really doing something with the second chance he

was given.” Before the cardiac arrest last year, Rosbrook had run a variety of marathons, halfmarathons and ultra races – anything over 42 kilometres.

I will run, walk, crawl or stumble 60 to 70 km a day to the finish line of the race that nearly ended my life last year. CONST. ANDREW ROSBROOK

“I think he has been a runner since he was five or 10,” Anita said. On the first day of his eight day journey, Rosbrook started at Parliament Hill and then made stops at Hunt Club Road and Riverside before ending the day in Kemptville. “I am taking it slow and pacing myself,” he JENNIFER MCINTOSH/METROLAND said, adding he was keeping a clear mind and watching the local architecture and country- Const. Andrew Rosbrook runs along River Road on May 5. Rosbrook was running the New Life Mike Marathon – 470 kilometres from Ottawa to Toronto – to raise awareness about side roll by as he ran. He said he planned to stop every 20 km the need for public access to Automatic External Defibrillators. along his route before hitting the finish line in Toronto on May 12. Rosbrook said he feels he owes it to himself to spread the message about the importance of defibrillators. “I will run, walk, crawl or stumble 60 to 70 km a day to the finish line of the race that nearly ended my life last year,” he said.

Kiwanis Club in the works for Barrhaven Jeff Mackey jeff.mackey@metroland.com

News – Barrhaven will have its own chartered Kiwanis club sometime this summer if all goes according to plan. “This past winter we put together a number of interested parties that are interested in putting together a Kiwanis club in Barrhaven,” said Philip Rossy, who until recently was the Lt. Governor of Kiwanis clubs in eastern Ontario, and is currently running for higher office in the organization. Kiwanis is an international service club that helps communities and children through volunteering, community work and other projects. Residents of Barrhaven have been attending Kiwanis meet-

ings in either south Nepean or Manotick, but have thus far been unable to work directly within their community. “(Barrhaven) is definitely underserviced, with a population of over 100,000 and there is currently no Kiwanis service club,” said Rossy. “We are in the process of chartering that club and have submitted the application and we expect to get charter approval within a month,” said Rossy. “The current governor, from Jamaica, she will be making the trip up for a charter evening in late July or early August.” The Barrhaven expansion is not the only Ottawa neighborhood that Kiwanis is eyeing. “We have targeted four to five potential areas in greater

Ottawa and eastern Ontario for growth,” said Rossy who mentioned the possibility of new clubs in Stittsville, Kanata, North Dundas and Aylmer, Que. as well. Michael Qaqish has been active in the creation of the proposed Barrhaven club. He has been selected as the president-elect of the new club, pending a formal meeting to be held June 16 at the Barrhaven legion. Along with selecting a president, a treasurer and a secretary, the meeting will look at what types of projects the club will undertake within the community. Qaqish says a room at the Barrhaven legion has been reserved for meetings of the new club every third Monday of the month.

News - In Aesop’s fable The Ant and the Grasshopper, the industrious ant stores food for the winter, while the carefree grasshopper spends the summer singing away. When the winter arrives, and the cold weather hits, the hungry grasshopper must ask the ant for food. It may be just a cautionary tale, but for many Canadians who don’t put enough money away for retirement, it could soon become a reality. According to a Sun Life Financial survey, one quarter of Canadians do not know, or have not given any thought to where their retirement income will come from. ”There is actually a lot of help out there. It’s just a matter of reaching out to a financial institution and asking questions,” said Cindy Crean, managing director of private clients for Sun Life Global Investments. Retirement savings experts suggest that individuals require 50-70 per cent of their pre-retirement income to maintain their standard of living in retirement. What’s the best way to do that? Start early is the common refrain: A 21-year-old investing a modest $100 a month into an RRSP at 5 per cent return can earn close to $200,000 by age 65. Though those in their 20s may not have much money for investments, between paying off school debts and covering the rent, this is a crucial de-

cade to start developing good saving habits, said Crean. And, as people progress into their 30s and 40s, she said, it’s important to stay the course and continue to save. ”People in their 30s are not necessarily thinking about retirement,” Crean said. “They should be, but they are probably just thinking about raising their kids, educating them and paying down their mortgage and maybe take a holiday.” But no matter how tight the budget, the most important rule to investing for retirement is to, well, just do it. “ ”Everyone should be doing something,” said Crean, stressing that sitting down with a financial advisor can Òhelp you rest easy at night. ”If you have $2,000 to put away I think most people would look at that and say, ‘that’s not very much. Should I even be bothering to do it?’” she said. “I would say yes, absolutely.” For most people, though, investing for retirement depends on a lot of variables. ”If you’re a teacher and you have a defined benefit pension plan that has indexing that is going to provide you with a pretty decent income at retirement, you may not need as much money in the bank to augment or complement that income,” Crean explained. ”Other individuals without a pension will need a significant amount of money in RRSPs (and other investments) to generate the kind of in-

... but you need to make a plan

The dream of riding off into the sunset in your retirment is still within your reach, experts say. come required at retirement.” One recent study, however, says the situation is not so dire, as Aesop’s tale fails to take into account the grasshopper’s ability to depend on a social safety net. A study released by the Fraser Institute in late April argues there is no retirement income crisis in Canada. The study, titled The Reality of Retirement Income in Canada, notes that focusing exclusively on the traditional pillars of the pension system like Old Age Security, CPP/ QPP, and voluntary pensions such as RRSPs, overlooks

trillions of dollars in assets held by Canadians. Those assets are held in the form of home equity and other savings and largely un-

documented support from family and friends. Other research paints a different picture on people’s re-

tirement plans. BMO Financial Group in March released a report that suggests most Canadians plan to depend on the CPP after their working lives. The survey showed 90 per cent will look to the CPP in retirement, while 88 per cent will bank on RRSP savings. Close to 60 per cent will hold a part-time job to fund retirement while 49 per cent plan to sell their homes. Thirty-four per cent responded they are hoping on a lottery win to get through their golden years. But those tasked with

overseeing Canada’s pension distribution say expecting the government to make up the difference in poor saving is a risk. Most Ontarians currently earn about $9,000 annually from CPP and Old Age Security with the average monthly payout less than $600. With a tsunami of retirees flowing through the system in the next 20 years, government officials anticipate a burden on social programs as more people rely solely on CPP. See TSUNAMI, page 33

Tsunami of retirees to hit the system over next 20 years Continued from page 31

Asked to pinpoint the cause for the pension crunch, Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa pointed to a lack of education and lack of opportunity for investment as key culprits. ”About 50 per cent of the population doesn’t have a private pension plan. A lot of people aren’t utilizing the room in their RRSPs. There is about $600 million in RRSP room still available,” Sousa said. “All this has an impact, ultimately, on our social costs in future because many are going to retire now on CPP alone and that is not going to be enough.” Backed by various organizations calling for action, the Liberal Government in Ontario, with NDP support, set out on introducing reforms to supplement the CPP. ”We want to provide more opportunities, more choice and more availability for residents to supplement their pension,” Sousa said. Regardless of whether a pension crisis exists or not, financial experts like former CFL player Chuck Ealey, who became a financial director with Investors Group after retiring from the game, argue creating a nest egg for retirement should be a priority for everyone. ”Nobody plans to fail,” said Ealey. “But people just fail to plan.”

‘I will tell him I love him’ Father of teen accused of murder says son may have mental illness Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News – Days after his wife’s funeral, the father of the Orléans teen accused of murdering his mother appeared at an Ottawa courthouse on May 7 to support his son. The court appearance of Christopher Gobin, 18, via video from the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre, was the first time Jacques Gobin had seen his son since his wife, Luce Lavertu, was killed. “I’m supporting him by being here ... and by seeing him this Friday (May 9),” he said. “I’m still his father, so I’ll act in a father capacity even though I’m also the spouse of the victim.” When Jacques discovered his wife’s body in their Avalon home on April 22, and later called 911, Christopher wasn’t at home. The Orléans teenager was later arrested several streets away from the home, after

Jacques had been removed from the scene by police. Jacques arrived at the courthouse with his mother and a family friend. The Orléans man did not want to comment on the case, but said his son’s friends who had recently told media Christopher had mental health issues were correct. “His friends’ comments are correct. He had been struggling,” Jacques said. “I’d like to think that there is an illness … (but) this will come through the judicial process. What I can tell you is that my wife, his mother, did love him very much.” Jacques was scheduled to visit his son two days after the court appearance. There is a processing time for visitors to be put on an approved guest list before they can see inmates. Jacques said that he, as well as Christopher’s sister and grandmother, will be able to visit him at the Innes Road jail.

“This was the only opportunity I’ve had to see my son. It is very hard, of course, to see him this way,” he said. Jacques said Lavertu was the love of his life, and he is “very much still grieving” her loss. They met while he was stationed just outside Quebec City, his first army posting. The family later moved to Ottawa, in the Avalon area in Orléans. Christopher is a student at St. Peter High School. Jacques said the family is extremely thankful for the community support and prayers, as well as services he’s received as a member of the army. Jacque’s daughter has received support from the English Catholic school board psychologist and is doing well, he said. “Her classmates have been very good. I’m very grateful for the community response and prayers and support from family friends and the community.” Jacques said he knows what he will say when he is able to speak with his son. “I will tell him I love him.”

Your gift keeps on giving. Forever.

MINIMIZE THE FINAL INCOME TAX LIABILITY OF YOUR ESTATE proper planning, a deceased’s “ Without income tax liability could be significant Did you know that approximately 80% of Canadians will donate to a charity during their lifetime? However, it is estimated that less than 10% will include a gift to a registered charity in their Will.

This is one of a series of several articles intended to build awareness about the impact of legacy giving to Forever CHEO. In addition to the spiritual and community benefits of gifting to a registered charity, naming a registered charity as a beneficiary in your Will can also be an effective way to minimize the final income tax liability

of an estate. Without proper planning, a deceased’s income tax liability could be significant. Various income inclusions at the time of death, such as deemed capital gains and the fair market value of an RRSP can result in a higher than expected estate income tax liability given Canada’s graduated income tax rates.

Gifts to Forever CHEO can include cash legacies, bequests of real or personal property, securities, life insurance proceeds and all or part of the residue of the estate. All of these gifts can potentially generate tax credits available to reduce an estate’s income tax liability. Additionally, the gifting of certain types of capital property to Forever CHEO under the terms of a Will may avoid capital gains but still maximize the tax credits available from such a gift.

If you are interested in finding out about how you can leave a CHEO legacy, please contact Megan Doyle Ray at

megandoyle@cheofoundation.com or (613) 738-3694

Please feel free to contact any member of CHEO’s Legacy Advisory Committee for more information about minimizing the tax liability of your estate and how you can make a lasting impact on the kids and families at CHEO. We would be happy to help you create your Forever CHEO legacy for generations of CHEO patients.

Running with a champ Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Sports - Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon organizers are already predicting the fastest marathon time ever on Canadian soil, with the event attracting the “best field ever” of elite runners. One athlete expected to make an attempt at the record, Kenyan runner and member of Kenyan parliament Wesley Korir, stopped off at Bell High School in Bells Corners on May 7 to speak with students enrolled in a unique long-distance running program and take them for a brief run about their track. A 2012 Boston Marathon winner, Korir has a personal best time of two hours six minutes and 14 seconds. During his visit, Korir shared the story of how he got into running, which had nothing to do with winning marathons at the time, said Bell High School teacher Karen Kurlicki who introduced him. Korir did not start off as an aspiring athlete, she said. He ran because he had to. “When I grew up, running was part of me,” Korir told students. “I had to run to do everything.” Korir’s family was poor. He grew up without shoes, and often went without food. But he ran everywhere: to school and back home, to fetch

food or water or do other errands for his family every day. “I didn’t know that was preparing me for my future life and passion,” he said. But running wasn’t his only necessity, he said. He felt education was as well. However, in Kenya, high school costs $350 a year, an amount his family couldn’t afford. “That’s nothing when you are here (in Canada),” he said, but in Kenya, the average daily wage is about $1. Korir snuck into class for the first couple weeks, but was eventually found out and forced to leave. That didn’t stop him, he said. Korir would sit outside classroom windows, trying to gain any knowledge he could, until a missionary teaching at the school saw him and decided to help. Using his wages from teaching, the missionary paid for Korir’s schooling. He graduated high school and went to college in the U.S. through track scholarships, and graduated with a degree in biology. So, it was the missionary that had helped him afford high school, and his running that had helped afford college that served as his inspiration for the Kenyan Kids Foundation. Korir attempted to pay back his missionary friend the money it cost

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 15, 2014

to send him to high school. The missionary refused, and asked instead that Korir help another child who wanted to go to school. Korir began by helping one child, and now, through the foundation he started, he is helping hundreds attend school. HAVING A CAUSE

Having the goal of helping kids go to school has improved his running, he said. “If you run without a purpose, without a cause, you are chasing the wind, and you can’t catch the wind,” he told students at Bell High School. That idea was a big concept for Kurlicki’s students, she said. The school’s long-distance running program is essentially preparation for a 10-kilometre race exam. The school also teaches a course on exercise science that studies important influences on a person who becomes a major athlete. “A lot of the kids do both programs, so you’ve got these really academic kids who are also training and have realized what they are capable of doing, and the contribution that they can make into their communities through racing,” she said. “It sort of opens their eyes to what can be done not just for themselves, but for the community as a whole. So it’s just a very important moment for

Korir will be competing in the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon on May 25. them, I think, to have him here with us today.” Before taking a quick run with the students, Korir encouraged them to find their own cause, and “change the world.” OTTAWA MARATHON ELITE

With Korir taking part in the Ottawa Marathon, there are three elite competitors who could break the fastest marathon-on-Canadian-soil record of two hours, seven minutes and five seconds.

The fastest is Yemane Tseguay of Ethiopia, with a personal best time of two hours, four minutes and 48 seconds, followed by Bazu Worky, also from Ethipoia, with a personal best time of two hours, five minutes and 25 seconds. Korir is next in line with his personal best time. “Ottawa is going to be an incredible competitive field,” said Korir in a press release. “It will give me an opportunity to compete and try to win the race. My first goal is to win the race.”

Audrey was very fearful of not passing Entrance Class

A

udrey prayed a lot. Of course, she was much older and much smarter than I was, and when she told me to get down on the braided rug by our bed to pray with her, I knew better than to ask why. Our family rarely varied from our bedtime routine. Once we had our necks washed, teeth brushed with baking soda, and nails cleaned, and changed into our pyjamas, we followed Mother upstairs and headed for the big braided rug under the window looking out towards the West Hill. As Mother settled into the rocking chair, we five children took our places on our knees around her, and whatever Mother prayed for we repeated verbatim. Once she had touched the tops of each head and we had said “amen” in unison, we headed for our beds. But this time of year, when the end of the year was close at the Northcote School, my sister Audrey always had extra prayers to say, and of course two praying at the same time for the same thing, she convinced me, had much more power than just one of us asking for a special blessing.

MARY COOK Memories The fact that the prayer had nothing to do with me didn’t seem to matter. It was the number, Audrey said, that counted. And so, after the boys had gone to bed, Mother had gone back downstairs, and Audrey had blown out the lamp, she tapped me on the shoulder, and I knew without asking, we were in for another long and purposeful prayer on the braided rug by our bed. We had it drilled into us over many Sunday school classes, and long and purposeful prayers from our whale of a minister as he flailed his arms from the pulpit every Sunday at the Lutheran Church, that praying for material things was right up there with stealing chickens. I confess I often prayed for black patent shoes, and white stockings, and blonde curls

like Marguirite, but I figured God would take into account my young age and forgive me. And of course, my prayers were silently said, so I was the only one who knew I had entered into this discretion, and I figured it was just between God and me. But once the school year was coming to a close, Audrey started in on these long prayers at night in the silence of our hall-bedroom upstairs. “Make sure your eyes are closed,” she whispered, as if I didn’t know enough to close my eyes. Then she would start. The prayers themselves varied every night, but the plea was the same. Audrey prayed to graduate from the Entrance Class. There was never any doubt in my mind that she would pass with or without our

special prayers, but Audrey wasn’t taking any chances. And so every night, right up until the day Miss Crosby handed out our report cards, Audrey and I got down on the rug by the bed and prayed that Audrey would graduate from the Northcote School. This of course, would go on for weeks, and by the time it was coming up to the last day of school, I was convinced God would be sick and tired of what Audrey and I were praying for. Why Audrey was so scared of failing was beyond me. Of course, no one ever went back to school if they failed the Entrance Class, and that was what terrified my sister. One day, when we were sitting in the old wood swing in the grape arbour, and our Saturday chores had been done, I asked Audrey why it was so important that she get out of the Entrance Class. Couldn’t she just stay home with Mother? Goodness knows there was enough to keep busy at on the farm: the garden was being planted, spring housecleaning was under way, the summer clothes had to be readied. And besides, lots of the older girls, when they finished at the Northcote School, would go off and get married if they

Did someone say, “long weekend”?

passed or not. Well, Audrey didn’t even have a steady boyfriend, so that was out. Then she told me, almost in a whisper, as if she was telling some dark secret. “Do you know what the fate is for a farm girl who doesn’t pass out of the Entrance Class?” she asked. Her face took on a most serious look, almost as if she was heading for some terrible end.

people.” She named a few of the girls who once went to the Northcote School who didn’t pass at the end of year, and they were in Renfrew, away from the only home they knew, doing housework for the rich people. So that was the fate of my beloved sister Audrey if she didn’t pass out of the Entrance Class. Once she told me that, I no longer felt the same about

The prayers themselves varied every night, but the plea was the same. Audrey prayed to graduate from the Entrance Class.

And then she said, again in a whisper, but with a kind of sharpness in her voice that I rarely heard: “They go in to Renfrew and do housework for the rich people.” She let out a long, purposeful sigh. “Housework. That’s what they do. I would rather die than leave the farm and go into Renfrew to scrub and clean for the rich

our secret nightly prayer at the side of my bed. I put my mind right to it and became just as fervent as my sister, begging God to help her get that report card from Miss Crosby at the end of the school year, saying she had graduated from the Entrance Class, saving her from doing housework in Renfrew for the rich people.

Health Benefits of

Lemons

Burn!

Lemons are the simplest way to give your body a FRESH START. The 5 top benefits of adding lemons to your next meal include:

Eating frequently throughout the day, approximately 5 to 6 meals a day, has proven to be the most effective way to burn fat. Not only will it help you burn calories all day long, it will increase your energy levels, accelerate your muscle growth, and speed up your metabolism.

1. Supports Immune Function:

2. Alkalizing: Lemons contain both citric and ascorbic acid which easily metabolize in the body allowing the mineral content of lemons to help alkalize the blood.

3. Digestion: Lemon juice stimulates hydrochloric acid in the stomach further aiding digestion. Vitamin C status has been associated with reduced risk of peptic ulcers caused by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori.

4. Clear Skin: Vitamin C combats free radical damage, which is responsible for many symptoms of aging.

5. Promote Healing: Ascorbic acid is an essential nutrient in the maintenance of healthy bones, connective tissue, and cartilage.

Lemon Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash Pasta Preparation Time: 10 min | Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 cup 1 medium spaghetti squash ¼ cup vegetable stock 1 tsp minced garlic, divided. 1 cup celery, diced 3 ½ cups fresh tomatoes diced 1 cup yellow tomato or pepper

½ cup Kalamata olives 1 tsp lemon juice, fresh 2 tsp lemon zest 3 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Slice spaghetti squash in half from top to bottom. Remove seeds and place squash cut side down on a parchment lined sheet pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until squash is able to pull away from sides in strands. In the meantime, in a large sauté pan, add the vegetable stock. Add the garlic and celery and sauté for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer cooking for 10 minutes. Next add the remaining tomato or yellow pepper, Kalamata olives, lemon juice and lemon zest. Once the squash is ready, pull all the “spaghetti” flesh from the skin and place the cooked squash on a serving platter. Top with tomato mixture, garnish with parsley and season with sea salt and pepper.

By not eating small frequent meal throughout the day, your body goes into starvation mode. When this happens your body assumes that it won’t be getting food again for a while, so instead of burning the food you eat, it will store it as fat. You can prevent your body from going into this mode by eating within an hour of waking up and then every 3 hours after that.

Ascorbic acid demonstrates anti-inflammatory effects and is used as complementary support for asthma and other respiratory symptoms.

Pan roasted asparagus trout and potatoes make easy dinner Lifestyle - Tender-crisp asparagus teams up with thinly sliced roasted potatoes and trout in this simple one pan dinner.

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

Toss the potatoes with 15 ml (one tbsp) of the oil and a pinch each of the salt and pepper. Arrange the potatoes on a greased baking sheet and bake in a 200 C (400 F) oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together the lemon juice, dill, mustard, garlic and the remaining oil,

salt and pepper and set aside. Place the fillets, skin side down, on top of the potatoes. Arrange the asparagus on the trout.

Local candidates talk provincial election Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Bob Chiarelli, MPP for Ottawa WestNepean and minister of energy, said he is prepared to take the Liberal budget to voters. Despite criticisms from the other two party leaders, Chiarelli said he is proud of the budget his government crafted and feels confident running on its merits. “We have to run on our policies and our record – the good and the bad,” he said. Chiarelli said the budget focuses on senior needs in health care – something important in his riding, which has a high concentration of seniors – and anti-poverty initiatives.

“We would increase minimum wage and increase wages in the health-care sector, as well as supports to assist seniors and people with disabilities in their homes,” Chiarelli said. But Lisa MacLeod, the MPP for NepeanCarleton, said if the Liberal budget had passed it would have spelled catastrophe for Ontarians. “It was a tax and spend budget,” she said, adding increased spending on the debt and the deficit would mean fewer dollars for things like education and health care. MacLeod said she was more than happy to head to the polls. “I am dancing and singing,” she said on May 2, just before Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne dropped the writ.

She said Ontarians no longer had faith in the government and they wanted to have a say in who leads the province. “Kathleen Wynne wasn’t elected and with her plans concerning pensions, I think people want to have a say,” MacLeod said. MacLeod said she has already started canvassing and residents are most concerned about affordability. She said locally, residents are worried about Kemptville College and the closure of beds at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital. NDP leader Andrea Horwath announced she wouldn’t be supporting the budget on May 2. The NDP had supported the last two budgets. Jennifer McKenzie, an NDP candidate for

Ottawa Centre and chair of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, said she wasn’t surprised that her party’s leader couldn’t support the budget this time. “The NDP have indicated they have lost confidence with the government,” she said. “The public doesn’t trust the Liberals to deliver on promises.” McKenzie said residents she has talked to are concerned about the environment and leaving a sustainable world for their children and grandchildren. It also comes down to dollars and cents. “People are concerned with being able to afford their rent and their electricity bills,” she said.

Building a home in OrlĂŠans brier.dodge@metroland.com

Community - They may have different backgrounds and stories, but the families who are building Habitat for Humanity Homes in OrlĂŠans this summer shared a common smile during a groundbreaking ceremony on May 8. Three of the four families who will purchase the new Habitat for Humanity homes on Nantes Street were at the ofďŹ cial groundbreaking, standing on the ground where their future homes will be built over the next year. The three families have 13 children between them, ranging in ages. In total, 15 children will move into the homes. The new homes will be built over the next year, with volunteers busy over the summer and fall months building the houses. The four homes will be in two semi-detached structures, similar in style to the Habitat for Humanity homes next door that were built last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to share the gratitude we have for the chance to start a new life,â&#x20AC;? said Fardowsa Haji-Dahir, one of the daughters who will move into the home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new beginning.â&#x20AC;? Haji-Dahir, a University of Ottawa student, has ďŹ ve siblings, and will move into the home with them and her parents. Her father is an industrial engineer, who came to Canada from Somalia. The family currently lives in south Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Words can not describe the elation and relief,â&#x20AC;? family

partner Marie Paquette said the family felt, when she gave them the good news they had been approved for the program. The Leduc family had a hard time containing their excitement. Louis and Johanne will purchase the home for themselves and their son Carlos, and move from the Hiawatha Park area of OrlĂŠans to Portobello South. Paquette said the Leduc family began volunteering

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just these families weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re helping, but all the generations after. This is a hand up, not a hand out.â&#x20AC;? .â&#x20AC;? ALEXIS ASHWORTH

on the microphone, but were also happy to see their new plot of land. Originally from Somalia, they will move from the St. Laurent-area to OrlĂŠans. Abdirizak has been working with the school board as a custodian for 20 years. They said they are very excited to be in a home with more space for them all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially to get a second bathroom. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently â&#x20AC;&#x153;very hectic,â&#x20AC;? Saida said. The kids said they are already determining who will share bedrooms with. Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region CEO Alexis Ashworth welcomed the families, volunteers and sponsors to the groundbreaking event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone here is excited to start work on their homes,â&#x20AC;? said Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region CEO Alexis Ashworth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just these

and working towards their 500 sweat equity hours as soon as they could. While each family needs to complete 500 hours working on homes or volunteering with Habitat to get the home, the Leduc family said they plan to continue to volunteer with Habitat even after they ďŹ nish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really unbelievable how many things come together,â&#x20AC;? Louis Leduc said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This organization, I can see in the future will be very solid. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to being a part of it in the coming years.â&#x20AC;?

Rural residents talk about service gaps About 90,000 people live outside cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urbun area Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Local community resource centres met at the Greely Community Centre on May 3 to talk about how they serve their rural residents. Representatives from Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre, the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre and the OrlĂŠans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre were on hand to talk about a strategy that would be unique to rural communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors who can no longer drive to get groceries or high school students who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t access services, we need to look what at we do well and what we can do better,â&#x20AC;? said Larissa Silver with Western Ottawa. Julie McKercher, who is a dedicated rural community developer that works exclusively within the catchment of Carp, West Carleton and Constance Bay said she started working with the Constance Bay Community Association on access to fresh produce.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors who can no longer drive to get groceries or high school students who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t access services, we need to look what at we do well and what we can do betterâ&#x20AC;? LARISSA SILVER

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because they are in the rural area one would assume that access would be readily available,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case. A lot of people were using the food bank and there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a local grocery store or gas station.â&#x20AC;? The resource centre helped to work out a good food box program that is now very well used. Ken Hoffman, from One World Inc. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a consulting company that worked with the resource centres on developing the strategies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; said Ottawa has particular challenges because some issues are unique to a rural setting, but a lot of the decisions are made in the rural area. Sylvie McGee, who has attended several meetings concerning the Carp Road dump, said the problem is the city makes rules which affect the rural communities but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily make sense in that climate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we often forget about the rural, rural

people,â&#x20AC;? McGee said, adding she married into a family that has lived on their current lot for seven generations. Her mother-in-law is in her 90s and she often doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn about meetings or services because she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the internet. MOVING FORWARD

To best advocate for their residents, community resource centres need to help facilitate communication and share information to residents, Jean Johnston-McKitterick, one of the candidates for Osgoode Ward, said. There are 90,000 residents in rural Ottawa and 60 community associations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the size of Kingston,â&#x20AC;? McKercher said, adding the combined voices may help add numbers to any given issue. One example brought up was the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies on severance, which prevents a lot of rural residents from splitting and building on their land. Another issue was the lack of places for older rural residents to go if they want to downsize. Emma Wallace, who attended Osgoode Township High School, said a lot of her friends are finding it difficult to maintain their ties with the community because their parents have to move into the urban area when they get older. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is there any way the resource centres can help us look at development within our own community?â&#x20AC;? one resident asked, suggested residents might be able to offer unique insight on what sort of housing or other development is needed. Luc Ouellette, the executive director for the OrlĂŠans-Cumberland Community Association, said the resource centre s would be working to ask local candidates up for election about their stance on rural affairs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have two elections coming up,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should make them count.â&#x20AC;? But the bottom line is residents need to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in their community, Const. Yolande Jacques said. Jacques works out of the Greely Community Police centre and said local high school kids could gain volunteer hours by delivering flyers from community associations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be a good way to give the kids something to do,â&#x20AC;? she said. During the forum, residents broke up into group to answer questions about how to better utilize community associations and other resources to fill gaps in services for the rural areas. The forum was the third in a series of meetings where the community resource centres have asked for input on their rural strategy.

Lions donate to care centre in honour of fallen member Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The Township of Osgoode Care Centre added another leaf on the Giving Tree on May 7. Mike O’Sullivan, president of the Metcalfe Lions Club was on hand to donate $1,000 from the club on behalf of the late Lou Withnall. Withnall, who passed away in November after a battle with oral cancer, was a long-time member and treasurer for the club. “He was a big supporter of the care centre,” O’Sullivan said, adding Withnall had sat on the care centre’s board of directors. O’Sullivan said there are 1.3 million Lions in 207 countries worldwide. The Metcalfe Lions Club gives money to a lot of local healthcare initiatives – namely the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. “Helen Keller challenged as to be the Knights for the blind in the darkness,” O’Sullivan said. Wendy Hill, the outreach director for the care centre said the Lions Club also donated $10,000 to the centre last year. The care centre was built in the ’80s and is in need of a new roof, a new generator, tables and chairs for the dining room and other furnishings and medical equipment. In a little more than a year, the care centre has reached $255,000 – more than half of the $500,000 goal. Hill said staff is currently getting prices for the roof, as well as new wardrobes for the residents’ rooms. They’re also considering a new

sign for the front. Hill said there will be another major fundraising event for the care centre held on Sept. 6 but wouldn’t say what the event is or where it will be held.

Residents weight two plans for Glebe Beer Store block Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Glebe residents gathered on May 8 to weigh in on a redevelopment plan for the Beer Store and Mister Muffler sites on Bank Street near Lansdowne Park. Bordered by Bank, Monk Street and Thornton Avenue, the land in question is nearly an acre in size, presenting a large development opportunity for builder Canderel Group of Companies. Located at the southern edge of The Glebeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bustling retail strip, the 90-metre long property is envisioned to become a two-storey retail development with the possibility of a boutique hotel or condominium rising above it. Representatives from Canderel and FoTenn Consultants were on hand to present the two tentative proposals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of just the two storeys, the other with four floors of residential rising above. Miguel Tremblay of FoTenn stressed that this was a preliminary meeting, as no development application has been submitted to the city. Tremblay describes the site as â&#x20AC;&#x153;uniqueâ&#x20AC;? for the area, in that the Beer Storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking lot provides an access to the rear of the site for either deliveries or a continued storefront that wraps around the development.

Current zoning for the bulk of the site allows 15 metres of height (about five storeys), while the northernmost section at the corner of Bank and Thornton is zoned R4T, allowing about four storeys. Under the proposed plan, that corner would see a two-storey retail establishment with a purposely different appearance than the rest of the strip. Planners envision a triangular second-floor outdoor restaurant patio placed at the corner of the building. Tremblay said there would be zero parking spots allotted for this part of the development, with patrons of those businesses asked to find street parking. The main site â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which the Beer Store intends to occupy part of - would have 68 underground parking spaces accessed from Holmwood Avenue. The number of spaces would rise if a residential component is added. Should the plan to build condos or a hotel go ahead, Tremblay said the applicant would likely have to file a minor variance for height along with a zoning bylaw amendment and site plan control application. Residents expressed concern about the impact of the development to residents living on Monk. The southern portion of the site would see the new building abutting Monk, where the Beer Store parking lot is now.

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

This artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rendering shows what the proposed Canderel development on Bank Street in the Glebe would look like if the builder decides to go forward with the denser of two plans. Two storeys of retail space is proposed in both. One resident expressed concern about the loss of greenery on the street if the trees bordering Monk are cut down. She stated the project would blend in better if a setback was created that incorporated those trees. No promises were made about the

trees, but Canderel and FoTenn did state that any residential component above the two storeys of retail would be oriented towards Bank and away from Monk. As well, the portion of retail space backing onto Monk would have its own distinct façade, rather than being a brick wall.

How the retailers in the new development would receive shipments was called into question. Monk residents were concerned about trucks using their street to deliver goods, though Tremblay said a city bylaw prevents delivery trucks from accessing the site via Monk. While residents were generally OK with having a continuation of the retail strip on Bank, the contents of that retail were cause for concern. Several residents expressed their desire not to see a large-format grocery store or a Shoppers Drug Mart contained in the development, not just for the competition to local stores, but also for the amount of activity it would generate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are two businesses in the Glebe we treasure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Home Hardware and the Metro,â&#x20AC;? stated one resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This kind of thing really makes people angry. We really care about this (issue), and if you want people to buy into this, you need to take us seriously.â&#x20AC;? Besides the Beer Store, no retail tenants have been announced by Canderel. The question of whether or not the development will contains four storeys of condos or hotel will have to wait until a rezoning application is submitted. At such a time, formal public consultations with city staff present will be held. R0012669653

The way you walk says a lot about you

(NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;A personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car or clothes may say a lot about them, but experts say the way one walks speaks volumes too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way a person walks is a major contributing factor to developing foot and lower limb issues,â&#x20AC;? says Ryan Robinson, a Canadian Certified Pedorthist and president of the Pedorthic Association of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When patients come to us for their initial consultation one of the

most important things we do is a gait assessment.â&#x20AC;? During a gait assessment, the pedorthist looks at all aspects of a patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lower limb including foot, ankle, knee, plus the hip alignment and function. One aspect of the evaluation is assessing how the foot functions during walking and whether there are excessive motions of the foot rolling in or rolling out. Overpronation occurs, says

Robinson, when a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot rolls excessively inward, causing the arch to elongate and collapse and the heels to lean toward each other. Oversupination or underpronation occurs when a person has feet that roll outward too much, often accompanied by a high arch, inflexible feet and poor shock absorption when they walk. Both of these conditions can lead to a number of painful problems including heel pain

or plantar fasciitis, lower back pain, shin splints, stress fractures in the foot or lower leg and many other injuries. Overpronation and oversupination donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always result in immediate medical problems, but if people who have flat feet or high arches experience lower limb pain they should book a consultation with a foot expert such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist. The pedorthist will advise

them on appropriate shoes and whether an orthotic, or modified footwear are required. It is particularly important that people who overpronate or oversupinate visit a pedorthist if injured since their poor foot mechanics will make their recovery more difficult. More information on overpronation and underponation can be found online at www. pedorthic.ca/conditions-overpronation.

Mayor frowns on subsidizing developer’s soil cleanup Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A move from Coun. Katherine Hobbs to ask the city to pay 100 per cent of the cost to clean up contaminated soil at an “important” development site was met with cool reception at city hall. The Kitchissippi councillor said an exception for Mizrahi developments is warranted because otherwise, a lot at the “gateway” corner of Wellington Street and Island Park Drive might never be developed. Hobbs eventually withdrew the idea after it got a beating during a May 6 meeting of the finance and economic development committee. The city already has a policy to pay 50 per cent of the cost to clean up contaminated soil, which must be completed before developments can proceed. The policy is a way to provide an incentive for builders to clean up contamination such as gasoline or chemicals in the soil and make use of vacant land, much of which is inside the Greenbelt. The grant is offered in the form of tax relief

on the property. The city gets about a dozen applications for brownfield remediation each year and that number is on the rise as developable land within the Greenbelt becomes scarcer, said John Smit, the city’s manager of urban development review. Even though neighbours liked Mizrahi’s proposed 12storey building, Hobbs said the proposal was headed for rejection from the city’s planning staff and committee because it doesn’t meet the community design plan, which calls for six- and ninestorey buildings. Giving Mizrahi a grant to cover all of the soil cleanup costs would allow the company to build within those design-plan limits, which the community wants, she said. The head of the company, Sam Mizrahi, said it was Hobbs’ idea to pursue 100 per cent relief from the cost of brownfield cleanup, but he supported the move. At least five other developers have walked away from the site at Wellington and Island Park due to the high cleanup cost, Hobbs and Miz-

rahi said. “Nobody else will clean up this site,” he said. “We’re building a building that’s iconic and epic.” The costs to clean up brownfields are on the rise because decontamination standards have been made stricter, Mizrahi said. He said it’s “dangerous” for the city to work in absolutes when it

project financially viable for Mizrahi. “If we cannot make it financially feasible for someone to build within the (community design plan) ... We need to look at the policy,” Hobbs said. Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume said the city’s planning policies have to work together and that’s a consider-

“If we cannot make it financially feasible for someone to built within the (community design plan) ... We need to look at the policy.” COUN. KATHERINE HOBBS

comes to planning policies, especially because he doesn’t feel the community design plan considered the full scope of the challenges in cleaning up the site. He pointed to a contaminated site on Hazelton Avenue in Toronto, where the city granted a rezoning and a higher-order Official Plan amendment that made that

ation when setting things like height limits in a community design plan. If it wasn’t realistic, it wouldn’t be in the plan, Hume said, noting no one from Mizrahi attended the meeting to argue otherwise. The city used to offer tax relief amounting to 100 per cent of the cost between 2007 and 2010, but has only pro-

vided 50 per cent for the past four years. Mayor Jim Watson, who heads the committee, said the 50 per cent policy is appropriate. “Going to 100 per cent is too excessive and too rich for the taxpayers of Ottawa,” he said. Watson said the city would have a hard time explaining why it decided to pay potentially millions of dollars to help out one developer and not others. “As a result of us now even musing about this, we’re going to have other companies coming to us and asking (for) the same thing,” Watson said. City lawyer Tim Marc agreed that any deviation from the policy would raise concerns about a discriminatory approach. Some councillors saw the difficulty of the situation and wondered if asking staff to review whether the 50-percent brownfields policy was working, or if council should consider upping the funding across the board. That approach was voted down 6-5 by committee members. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun.

Peter Clark questioned whether it was the city’s job to ensure developers have enough revenue in their business plans in order to cover the cost of remediating the land. Mizrahi said he’s still optimistic about the project and will continue to pursue the 12-storey proposal with an appeal at the Ontario Municipal Board if necessary. “I believe at the end of the day what is right and correct will triumph,” he said. “If you look at the fundamentals of what we’ve done, they’re correct.”
