News - As police work to piece together the events that led to the stabbing death of an 18-year-old St. Patrick’s High School student just hours after

the school’s downtown prom, friends and classmates are remembering Brandon Volpi as a gentle giant. Dolapo Asaju, who attended Grade 12 with Volpi, said she was initially intimidated by the young man, who stood well

over six feet. “I was scared, like, ‘Oh my god. He’s going to do something,’” she said with a smile. “You would never think someone so big … was so sweet.” It was in Grade 10 that she learned just how kind he was as they walked to lunch with a mutual friend, and Asaju didn’t have enough money for a meal.

WAHED ALI MOHAMMED/ SUBMITTED

South-Nepean Muslim community members are waiting patiently for a mosque to be completed at 3020 Woodroffe Ave. in Barrhaven. Its completion is projected for late October.

R0022738880-0612

News- When the South Nepean Muslim Community was unable to get an occupancy permit, for their partly complete new mosque, the Barrhaven United Church council returned a favour of friendship, offering to host the group at their church hall for the duration of Ramadan. “Zijad made the initial move to be friends,� said Reverend Maggie Melansom, at Barrhaven United Church, said of the Imam Zijad Delic. “He noticed we had a food cupboard and offered for extra hands from his community to help.� Ramadan starts on June 28 and is one of the most widespread and sacred 30 days in the Islamic year. Participants abstain from eating food during daylight hours in hopes of separating the physical world from the spiritual. They bring closure to the month with a huge celebratory feast of gratefulness, called Eid al-Fitr or the feast of breaking fast, on July 28. Community members of the Muslim faith have had to arrange alternative spaces to conduct their services and prayers until construction is completed on a local mosque, being erected at 3020 Woodroffe Ave. Its projected completion date is not until late October, early November 2014. One of the well-known temporary prayer sites is located at a city of Ottawa facility, a schoolhouse on the

corner of Jockville and Strandherd. “We’re all people of faith and it’s when we come together that great things happen,� said Melansom. “It just makes sense to help.� The new mosque and community centre is expected to have prayer space to accommodate 750 people, a community hall, a recreational sports facility, libraries and classrooms. In light of the circumstances, the Muslim community partnered with Barrhaven United Church to conduct a three-part educational series called Islam 101. “It has introduced an opportunity for mutual communities to get a chance to know each other,� said Melansom. Members of surrounding clergies and the community gathered at the Barrhaven United Church to learn about Islam from guest host Imam Zijad Delic on May 21. Topics discussed included statistics of growing Muslim populations in the Ottawa region, marriage, treatment of elders and women’s rights. “Zijad is so well-versed, and this was very informative,� said Brenda Whyte, a curious agnostic community member. The event provided a welcoming evening for 70 public supporters to openly engage and ask questions about the Muslim faith and Islamic traditions. As Delic told stories to illustrate his points he referenced his personal experiences and verses from the Qur’an.

City launches lawsuit against bridge designer City staff disciplined – but not fired – over pedestrian bridge fiasco Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city launched a $4.6 million lawsuit against the Airport Parkway footbridge designer and has disciplined staff over the botched project. The lawsuit ďŹ led against WSP Canada Inc., which was known as Genivar when the city hired the company to design a gateway pedestrian and cycling bridge connecting the South Keys community to Greenboro shopping centre and Transitway station in 2010. Major issues with the design of the bridge forced the city to stop construction and hire another ďŹ rm, Delcan, to revise the plans and take over construction. Now, the bridge that was originally slated for completion in 2012 is expected to be done by the end of this year. During a ďŹ nance and economic development committee meeting on June 3, councillors received an update on the city’s actions following a damning independent report on the project from March that slammed the bridge designer and city staff.

to the staff that were involved in the project,â€? he said after the meeting. Even councillors were left in the dark about the details of the disciplinary action, despite the ďŹ nance and economic committee going into a private “in cameraâ€? session to discuss personnel matters. Information from the SEG report and a separate city auditor general report on procedural issues have prompted the city to make changes to its protocols for communication on infrastructure projects and when managers should get involved, Kirkpatrick said. That “culture changeâ€? in the department includes more than 30 different actions that will all be implemented by 2015, he said. “I am conďŹ dent by the end of this year the staff in (infrastructure services) will be well focused on the kind of oversight that’s required in managing consultants and contractors, speciďŹ cally with regards to risk identiďŹ cation, budget and schedule,â€? he said. Kirkpatrick and Watson agreed that while some of the blame for the

“The primary responsibility for what has happened and has been the failure of this project to date is the responsibility of the design engineers,�

Kirkpatrick said. Although the dollar value of the lawsuit isn’t as large as some of the city’s past legal actions, Kirkpatrick said seeking $4.6 million is a “signiďŹ cant lawsuitâ€? given the small size of the project. The money being sought would cover the cost overruns of having to redesign and rebuild components of the bridge, which originally had a $6.8-million price tag when the project was launched in 2010. The city’s $4.6-million lawsuit adds to the mess of litigation already underway as a result of the bridge project, with contractors and subcontractors Watson said the issues with the pedestrian bridge have caused ongoing frustration but said they should be viewed in context. “We had over the course of the last several years literally hundreds of projects because of the infrastructure funds from the other levels of government. Well over 95 per cent of those projects arrived on time and on budget,â€? he said. “The challenge with this project is it’s way off budget, has not been properly executed, there are problems with everything from the cement to the design ... and it’s a very high-proďŹ le project. People see it going back and forth from the south end and the airport.â€?

The report from SEG Management Consultants, Inc. detailed staff communication issues and faulty procedures that contributed to the problems plaguing the project. Watson conďŹ rmed on June 3 that no city staff had lost their jobs over the ďŹ asco, but disciplinary letters had been appended to staff ďŹ les and there was at least one suspension without pay, although the mayor wouldn’t say how many staffers has been suspended, nor their seniority or the duration of the suspension. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick declined to go into detail about what disciplinary action he doled out. “I have applied what is, in my opinion, the right level of discipline

New Sawmill Creek pathway extension set to open Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - A new $2.5-million pedestrian and cycling pathway along Sawmill Creek is expected to open by the end of June, which will allow more commuters to get out of their cars and on their bikes, said the city’s River Ward councillor. The 1.2-kilometre northsouth stretch extends north along the Airport Parkway from the existing Sawmill Creek pathway at the Walkley Road transitway station and links with the existing Brookfield Road pathway, just west of the pedestrian bridge over the creek. “I can’t imagine how cool it’s going to be to be a cyclist hopping on that pathway, knowing you can safely navigate that very busy corridor and not have to be in the middle of traffic,� said Coun. Maria McCrae, one of the driving forces behind the pathway extension. “It’s an alternate form of transportation that gets cars off the road. And when you hear people complaining about congestion, certainly anything we can do to get cars off the road is

The three-metre-wide strip is now fully paved, retaining walls have been constructed in places where the grade along the creek is steep, and several trees have been planted along the off-road

corridor. Final steps include some landscaping and an inspection before the city can officially take over the infrastructure, said McCrae, who has, in her excitement, regularly tweeted the progress that’s been made on the pathway. The pathway extension also been built with the future in mind.

“For anyone who’s questioning whether that pathway was built to allow for future expansion of the Airport Parkway, absolutely,� McCrae said, noting an environmental assessment on the parkway’s expansion is slated to begin soon. “So there will be no re-digging it up or anything.� The path will also translate into an economic boost in the

surrounding neighbourhood and in the greater region because it will not only draw tourists, but also residents who may be considering moving to the community, said McCrae. She pointed to Washington D.C. and Portland, Ore. as examples of cities that have experienced increased economic development thanks to their extensive pedestrian and cycling networks. The creation of the Sawmill Creek recreational-use pathway was first envisioned by McCrae about a decade ago when she first took office. Work on the Sawmill Creek Constructed Wetlands had begun, and she said she saw potential for the development of pathways in the area. But McCrae was told by city staff these were earmarked for trucks accessing storm-water ponds, and that there were no plans for recreational use in the area. McCrae then pushed for paths between Walkley and Hunt Club roads to be groomed. “But as soon as you got to Walkley, you had no where to go, so if you had a stroller or a walker or a wheelchair you

were sort of stuck on the pathway,� McCrae said. Once Nancy Schepers took up the post as deputy city manager of planning and infrastructure, the two worked together to make the Sawmill Creek pathway extension a reality. “We agreed that having that safe, very important northsouth corridor was a priority in our transportation network,� McCrae said. Credit for the project’s successful completion also goes to city engineer Carina Duclos and project manager Tara Blasioli, who ensured the multi-use corridor was finished on time and on budget, McCrae said. The path was designed to help link commuters working downtown and living south of the city. “For me, you can put your bike on the O-Train, hop off at Confederation (Heights), which is very close to Brookfield (Road), get on that pathway and cycle all the way up to Hunt Club Road, which is a tremendous opportunity to get cars off the road and get a little bit of fitness in at the same time,� McCrae said. “I’m a happy councillor.�

The power of unions to motivate workers

A

few weeks ago, I got into a heated email debate with a colleague of mine about unions. The subject, loosely, was “have unions outlived their purpose?� My interlocutor said the days of unions as a necessary protector of workers are over, that unionized workplaces lead to lazy and unmotivated workers, and that these workers take advantage of their benefits at expense to their employers. It’s easy enough to flip that argument completely on its head -- that non-unionized workplaces lead to stressed out and burnt out workers, and that those without any kind of job security, medical insurance or pension are disloyal and unmotivated.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse that employers who don’t offer benefits and pensions make corporate decisions at the expense of their employees. Don’t believe me? It may be worth taking at look at what actually motivates people to perform. Recently, I viewed an animation by RS Animate, which summarized the findings of several academic studies on motivation. What they found, ultimately, was that a sense of purpose and the opportunity to be creative were two things that drove people to their best

performance. Surprisingly, however, the researchers found money to be a very limited motivator. People need to be paid enough money to take the issue of money off the table, they discovered. Beyond that comfort zone, the more money people were offered to do a task, the worse they performed. Experiments done by the authors of the book Happy Money produced similar results. The majority of American workers, the authors discovered, are mo-

Western Light Rail Transit Corridor Extension (Lincoln Fields to Bayshore Station) Planning and Environmental Assessment Study Open House #1 Thursday, June 19, 2014 Foster Farm Community Centre Gymnasium 1065 Ramsey Crescent, Ottawa 6 to 8:30 p.m. Transit Access: approximately 250m walk from Pinecrest Station By attending this open house session, you will learn more about this study for a light rail transit (LRT) corridor to run between the planned Western LRT Corridor (from a junction south of Lincoln Fields Station) and Bayshore Station. At the meeting, City Staff will provide information on the process and objectives and identify preliminary design issues to be addressed by the study. You will have the opportunity to meet and discuss your comments with the study team. The City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP 2013) identiďŹ es the Western Light Rail Transit Corridor Extension as a component of the future expanded rapid transit network, integral to achieving modal share targets for public transportation. Study Area The Study Area extends between the existing Transitway (from a junction south of Lincoln Fields Station) and Bayshore Station, along Highway 417. The Environmental Assessment portion of the study will be undertaken in accordance with the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects. The ďŹ nal Environmental Project Report will be integrated with that of the Western Light Rail Transit Corridor (Bayview to Baseline) Planning and Environmental Assessment Study. Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please call or e-mail the project lead below.

tivated by wage increases up to a total salary of $60,000 per year. For every dollar increase over and above that, however, the authors found a negative co-relation between money and happiness. In other words, the more money people made, the less happy they reported to be. SALARIES

What does all this have to do with unions? Unions negotiate and protect livable salaries with job security and benefits. Unionized workers are paid enough money to take the issue of money off the table which, if the studies above are correct, will lead to optimized performance and generally happy workers. We all know this isn’t a perfect formula. There are other motivation problems in unionized environments

that need to be considered: restrictions on lateral movement, for example, or the lack of opportunities to innovate. But, as far as money goes, until we see corporations match these healthy work environments without the

People need to be paid enough money to take the issue of money off the table ... pay – the unionized environment enforced the opposite, making us better prepared to bring our A-games to the table with every single story. Not to mention the fact that mandated breaks contributed to greater innovation and connection to colleagues and to the workplace generally.

negotiation and protection of unions, the latter, in my opinion, will continue to have a purpose. It’s easy to be jealous or critical of unionized workers. But let’s not forget that even those of us who are not unionized owe a lot to unions – legislated vacation time, sick days and 40-hour

Traffic safety 101

T

he traffic issues putting kids at risk at Robert E. Wilson Public School on McArthur Avenue are common across the city. The problem deserves a real solution and parents should support changes to make kids safer. R.E. Wilson is located on a road where drivers are unlikely to slow down to the speed limit. The children attending the school are in kindergarten to Grade 6; not a good mix with fast cars. On top of that risk, parents try to get their cars in and out of the parking lot before the bell rings and after school. Many may be in a rush to get to work each morning. The school’s principal calls the situation dangerous and says there are often near misses. Parents have been asked to drop off kids along the road, right onto paths that link to the school, but many still choose to head into and out of the parking lot. The parent council would like to see a permanent solution: closing the parking lot. Some parents have reportedly responded with anger when it’s suggested the lot could be closed. The school has done just about everything possible to reduce the risk of a serious injury or death, including efforts to get more kids to walk or ride bikes to school.

A crosswalk has been added at the corner of McArthur Road and Brant Street, the speed limit is marked at 40 kilometres per hour during school hours and a loading zone – perfect for dropping off or picking up kids – has been established. A recent police blitz resulted in 40 tickets being handed out, but the deterrent value of a crackdown is – as expected – fleeting. It’s also expensive to have officers staking out a school zone over and over again. Clearly the parking lot should be closed if that’s the greatest risk to kids. It’s time for the city to step in and install traffic calming measures. They don’t have to be expensive. Narrowed traffic lanes can help, and also have the advantage of making the road crossing shorter for pedestrians. The area sounds like a perfect spot to join a pilot project now underway in a few areas of the city that has seen flexible posts installed down a road’s centreline with the speed limit marked on them. This visually narrows the road and can result in lower speeds. If there’s ever a place that deserves added attention, it’s a school zone. No kid should be hurt or killed because they’re heading to or from school.

Our lawns tell story of the new impersonal campaign

E

ven in the last week of the Ontario election campaign, it was hard to find campaign signs on people’s lawns. True, there was no shortage of them on public property. But if you walked along neighbourhood streets and looked for them in front of people’s houses, no go. You could walk an entire city block without seeing a lawn that had a sign on it. Fewer people than usual felt committed enough about a candidate or a party to allow a sign on their lawn. That could mean a lot of things, the most important of which was that the election was not connecting with people. Why would that be? There will be no shortage of blame to spread around. The parties and their leaders will get some of it, for failing to excite the people. The people will get some blame too, for being too busy with trivial matters to care about who governs them. And then there are the media, always available when blame is being shared around. The news media accentuated the negative, played up insignificant controversy and gave insufficient time and space to more serious policy matters. You can find something to agree with all of these explanations, but there are other things to

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town consider, such as the way election campaigns have been changing in recent years. This one was a good example. The parties no longer campaign the way they once did. They now focus almost entirely on media, old and new, and the effect may be to make individuals feel less involved in campaigns. There was more door-knocking in previous campaigns. The odds were that at some point, one or more candidates would come to your door, often accompanied by some of your neighbours. That would help to personalize the campaign for you. You would also see your neighbours at the all-candidates debate at a school or church hall near you. After listening to the candidates and perhaps asking a question or two, you would talk with your friends and neighbours about

what you’d heard. Whichever candidate you supported, you had a sense that the election touched your neighbourhood in some way. And you might put out a sign. Today’s parties don’t seem to care about that. In today’s style of campaigning, there is heavy reliance on television advertising, which involves the individual voter not at all, other than by changing the channel. More recently, there is an increasing emphasis on the Internet and social media. There is Internet advertising and an endless barrage of tweets. Your computer replaces your doorstep. While this means that, theoretically, messages from the parties can reach more people than ever before, the overall effect is to make them less personally involved. They have less personal contact with candidates; they see lots of them, but only as images on a screen. At the same time that electronic contact with voters has expanded, face-to-face contact has diminished. You have probably noticed news articles during the campaign about the decreasing number of all-candidates meetings. This has been interpreted as part of a political strategy to keep tight control on the message and the candidates, to avoid at all costs unscripted encounters with voters and journalists.

The idea is to minimize risk, to avoid situations where candidates have to think on their feet, perhaps make a mistake or show that they don’t know all the answers. Political junkies may find this risk-free campaign interesting to watch, but for most of us these changes in campaign style have created far too much distance between us and the people we elect. The new breed of political strategist doesn’t seem concerned by this. The only goal is winning and if winning can be done without communicating, so much the better. But if it’s working for the parties, it’s not working for the people. The lawns tell the story.

‘He was just a wonderful person:’ student Continued from page 1

“And so he bought me lunch,� she said outside her Alta Vista school on Monday, June 9, as mourning friends and classmates cried and hugged one another. “That’s how I got to know him and then we just used to say hi to each other. He was so nice to everyone that knew him. He was just a wonderful person.� About 60 per cent of the 253 students from St. Patrick’s graduating class celebrated the end of the school year at their prom on June 6 at the National Arts Centre on Elgin Street in downtown Ottawa. Asaju said she saw him there and they said hi. “He looked really happy. There was nothing wrong,� she said, adding Volpi left the celebration early, around 7:30 p.m. One-hundred-and-fifty students were signed in during the celebration and supervised by 20 staff members from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., said Mardi de Kemp, spokeswoman for the Ottawa Catholic School Board. “The event went well and ended at 10:30 (p.m.) without incident.� Police are now working to determine what happened next. While investigators remain tight-lipped about the active investigation, Asaju said her school is abuzz with word

sharing their stories,� Asaju said, just as they had at a vigil on Sunday night outside the hotel where Volpi was mortally wounded. “It’s prom night and then it’s three weeks to graduation and we were all hoping to graduate together,� she said. Psychologists and social workers were at the school on the first day back to classes after the prom-night murder. Pictures of Volpi, candles and memory books were placed in the school’s foyer, office and chapel to help students with the grieving process. “It’s very sad at the school,� said de Kemp, adding that Volpi was active in school wrestling and rugby. “He was a very popular kid and somebody that everybody knew, and a Grade 12 student right at the end of his (academic) career,� she said. A private memorial service to honour Volpi will be held at St. Patrick’s High School, though the details had not been organized before the News’ press time. The slain teen will also be remembered during the school’s graduation ceremony on June 26, said de Kemp. Meanwhile, though the

Touching momentos outside Les Suites Hotel in downtown Ottawa honour the memory of Brandon Volpi, a St. Patrick’s High School student who was murdered June 7. that Volpi had been walking a friend back to Les Suites Hotel, located at 130 Besserer St., at the top of Dalhousie Street. Students from at least two high schools – St. Patrick’s and St. Pius X – were staying there overnight, confirmed Staff Sgt. Robert Drummond, who is managing the homicide case. Asaju was also told that Volpi’s friend had gotten into an argument earlier in the evening. It doesn’t surprise Asaju that Volpi had come to someone’s assistance. “Everyone goes to Brandon because he’s brave and strong

and he can protect,� she said. Police were called to the hotel around 3:35 a.m. on Saturday after Volpi had been stabbed. The teen was transported to hospital where he died from his injuries. Drummond, who co-heads the Ottawa police major crime section, declined to confirm media reports that Volpi had been stabbed in the chest and neck, to protect the evidence in the case. “There was an altercation between two different groups,� he said, adding that alcohol may have played a role in the homicide. “We all know people behave differently (when al-

cohol is consumed),� said Drummond. A second male received minor injuries that night, and was treated and released from hospital. His name was not released by police. “He’s not a suspect,� said Drummond. News of Volpi’s death was all over Facebook by the time Asaju woke the next morning. “I was like crying and yelling. Just unbelievable,� she said. “He’s Brandon.� When she arrived at St. Patrick’s for class Monday morning, students were gathered around Volpi’s locker. “Everyone was talking,

police investigation into the homicide continues, reports that a person of interest in the case are “misleading,� said Drummond. “To be honest we don’t discuss people until they’re in custody and before the courts.� Major crime investigators are being assisted in the case by school resource, forensic identification and general assignment officers. Drummond is urging anyone with information on the case to come forward. “We’re still looking for anyone who was at the scene who witnessed the altercation involving the victim, Brandon, to come forward and assist us,� he said, adding that even small details may prove helpful to investigators. “Every piece of the puzzle is important,� the 18-year Ottawa police veteran said. “Doesn’t matter how small or how big. Don’t assume that other witnesses have already filled us in on everything. “Everyone person’s story is individual and we want to hear it,� Drummond said. Volpi’s funeral is at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 13 at St. Anthony’s Church, 427 Booth St.

We can’t predict the weather but there are many things to do to prepare your home for it Despite a year of extreme weather, Canadians do not feel any more prepared to deal with its potential impacts, according to the seventh annual RBC Canadian Water Attitudes Study. In fact, only half (52 per cent) feel prepared to cope with the adverse effects of severe thunderstorms. About 38 per cent feel prepared for flooding and a mere 27 per cent feel prepared for hurricanes.

4. Install a back-flow valve or a backup generator for basement sewage drains or sump pumps.

“With extreme weather events on the rise, it’s likely that most Canadians will experience moderate to severe weather events in their area sometime this year,” says Paula Bandi, Senior Product Manager, Home, RBC Insurance. “Learning what actions to take can help Canadians protect themselves, their family and their home in the event of an emergency.”

8. Have large trees that are growing directly over pipes checked every three years to ensure there are no cracks where roots can enter and grow.

RBC Insurance® offers these important tips to help Canadian homeowners prepare for extreme weather events: 1. Inspect the roof annually, checking for missing, curled or damaged shingles. If any, speak with a professional roofing contractor.

5. Install downspout extensions, rain barrels and splash pads to ensure water is flowing away from your home. 6. Keep outdoor storm sewer grates clear of debris. 7. Keep trees and shrubs trimmed to avoid branches or trees falling onto your home or your neighbour’s home.

9. Install impact-resistant windows and doors and, at least once a year, check that they’re secure and re-caulk as needed. 10. Put together an emergency kit of first aid items and supplies, and identify the safest area of your home for shelter. For more information, please visit www.rbcinsurance.com/preventiontips.

2. Maintain eavestroughs and keep them clear of debris. 3. Seal any cracks in foundation walls and floors.

Dufresne Furniture

Grand Opening By David Johnston Furniture shopping will never be the same. Often considered a confusing and overwhelming predicament by many would-be buyers, The Dufresne Group has revolutionized the furniture and appliance buying experience. Gone are the endless lines of merchandise and fast talking sales people focused more on commissions than customer satisfaction. Instead, the new Dufresne Home Furnishings store at 290 West Hunt Club Road is a state-of-the-art journey of discovery into what will enhance and improve your life and style. “Our goal is to ensure our guests find the furniture, mattresses and appliances that work best for them and make their life simpler,” said Troy Davis, President TDG. “It’s about finding that perfect fit for their unique life and style, all within their budget.” Walking into the fresh, bright store is in itself an experience. You enter Inspiration Way, and are greeted by friendly staff who assist you with your own personal journey of discovery to reveal what furnishings and accessories best suit your needs. “With this new store, we went back to the drawing board,” said Davis. “We explored every corner of the shopping journey and asked ourselves how we could make the experience easier, less stressful, and ultimately, fun.” The result was “collections merchandising” rather than traditional category arrangement. The new location, carefully crafted into 23,000 square feet of showroom, features three main furniture style collections: Current Classic, Cozy Casual and Modern Chic. A couple minutes at a conveniently located computer screen allows the shopper to discover their own style and then simply stroll to that section of the well-laid out store. There they will find a myriad of choices awaiting as the My Custom concept allows buyers to match colours, fabrics, finishes, legs and much more.

“To find that perfect fit, Dufresne combines education, expertise and science into the guest experience—one that could be better described as a journey,” said Davis. “Our sales professionals take the time to get to know each guest and their specific style preferences, room situation and lifestyle needs.” First, a customer selects their “fit”, starting with the largest piece for the room, such as a sofa or dining set. Then personal creativity takes over as you can modify almost every aspect of any piece of furniture. Choose a frame and then customize it with arms from Creighton, Leeds, Marymount, Meadowridge and Ottawa. Finally, you can “refine your look” by selecting the colour and fabric that fit your décor. “Extensive custom order options and complete room solution packages with unique vertical merchandising help ensure a complete offering to the guest,” said Davis. Find your ultimate life and style by simply taking the journey. Cozy Casual is a relaxed collection, combining comfortable, over-sized pieces with warm fabrics and distressed leathers for a vintage look. Modern Chic features simple, clean lines matched with bold accents for an urban expression. Current Classics creates timeless elegance with antique-inspired designs and a sophisticated attention to detail.

Dufresne redefines furniture shopping at new Hunt Club location “You dream, we listen, and together we discover,” said Davis. And when it comes to dreaming, Davis says Dufresne has also revolutionized the art of sleeping well.

Dufresne President Troy Davis displays some of the many options available to create your custom table from the My Custom collection.

shopping. Sometimes it is hard for a person to articulate what they want or need in a mattress but the journey helps you find exactly what you are looking for. It’s not just about product and price; our focus is on providing a sleep solution that lays the foundation for a healthier life.” The same can be said for appliances. The only difference is that the journey starts with a functional assessment to determine what type of machine best suits the application. With all the top brands available, such as Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool and Maytag, the Dufresne team can easily match you to the appliance that fits best. Ottawa Dufresne franchise owner Andre Desrochers is proud of the new location, and thanked his staff and contractors for their dedication and long hours to bring the project to fruition. “We are very excited to be in this new location with such an amazing store,” said Desrochers. “A lot of effort went into making this a reality and now we are ready to launch a whole new way to buy furniture. Our visual presentation team did an amazing job and I am proud of the efforts of all my staff.” This is the second Dufresne location in Ottawa. The existing Gloucester location at 1901 Cyrville Road has also recently been renovated to match the new style of the Hunt Club store. Both stores are open Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. You can find out more about the Dufresne “collections” buying experience online at www.dufresne.ca.

“Walk the journey and take five minutes to find the best sleep of your life,” says Davis. The first step is to analyze how you sleep. With the aid of high-tech science, the staff at Dufresne reveal what you need to sleep better. Then you sample the mattresses and pillows that suit your profile. “This takes the guess work out of mattress

CHEO opens epilepsy monitoring unit Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News – Dr. Sharon Whiting motions to a bank of computer monitors stationed in the hallway outside two hospital rooms at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. The specialized high-tech equipment and dedicated beds are features of the hospital’s brand new epilepsy monitoring unit that opened on May 12, which is already making a difference in the lives of children and youth who either have epilepsy, or it’s suspected they may have the neurological disorder, which is characterized by seizures. “The (four) patients that have been admitted (so far) were patients who either had a diagnosis of epilepsy and we wanted to confirm where in the brain the seizures were coming from or we wanted to actually make sure that they had seizures,” said Whiting, an epileptologist – a neurologist with a sub-specialty in epilepsy - and head of the hospital’s neurology division. “This has implications for all the patients in terms of their treatment and follow-up,” she said. On average about 200 new epilep-

tic patients are seen at CHEO each year. About 100 of them will come into the new unit for comprehensive testing and diagnosis, effectively doubling the number of pediatric patients, and reducing wait times, said Whiting. The unit is already booked until October, though the schedule can be shifted to accommodate more urgent cases, she said. Once admitted to the unit, two patients at a time can be monitored for an average of three days, from Monday to Friday. This gives the unit’s medical team, which now includes two new dedicated technologists, more time to collect data on the patient’s brain function – especially during a seizure – in a safe and controlled environment, said Whiting. While some patients can still be assessed in the hospital’s outpatient electroencephalogram lab as before, they are only monitored for 30 minutes to an hour between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Patients and their families often have to come back several days in a row so that a seizure can be recorded. “The downside of that is that if they had events during the night,

Dr. Sharon Whiting, head of the neurology division at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, says the recent creation of an epilepsy monitoring unit at the hospital will cut wait times for patients and mean faster assessments and diagnoses, resulting in improved care. you couldn’t capture those events because we send them home each day,” said Whiting, a Mooney’s Bay resident. “That was not a very efficient way. Parents had to take a lot of time off (from work). We may or may not capture the events.” Before the creation of the dedi-

cated unit, these patients could be admitted to the hospital for overnight monitoring, but patients requiring more urgent care who were admitted through the emergency department took precedence. “To get those patients previously admitted would take months,” said Whiting.

To improve chances of recording a seizure, a patient’s medication dosages sometimes need to be tapered ahead of time. “You can’t do that process unless you’re sure you’ve got a bed,” she said. See TWO, page 14

Two dedicated beds to cut patient wait times Continued from page 13

“So it meant that that patient coming in would stay even longer, so this has helped us with access, it has helped us with length of time that patient has to stay and very good information that we’re able to get.” The new unit also comes with two new dedicated electroencephalogram or EEG machines, with video and audio capabilities, allowing the team to constantly record a patient’s brain function over a longer period of time. This allows the medical experts to make a more definitive diagnosis, and even rule out epilepsy altogether. Before the new unit was created, the equipment suffered wear and tear from being transported to various units in the hospital. “This way we’re in one location, we have a set number of

trained staff, everything is very complete,” said Whiting, who also serves as a vice-dean at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine. Precision means everything in her line of work. The unit will allow doctors to more quickly determine if a patient is a candidate for surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. The comprehensive data gathered by the CHEO team at the unit will cut down on waiting times for assessments at the Toronto hospital. “Their waiting time could have taken up to a year to get assessed,” Whiting said. “Now with our unit we’re able to give them all this data when we send them on, and they analyze the data before they even see the patient. “And then that means the whole process is quicker for everybody.”

CHEO’s new monitoring-unit beds are two of 21 beds newly assigned for epilepsy patients at several Ontario hospitals, including the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus. TASK-FORCE EFFORTS

centres, such as CHEO; regional epilepsy centres, where surgery is done; and the delivery of co-ordinated and standardized care across these sites and with family doctors. The team, comprised of epileptologists, nurses, technologists, senior administrators and representatives from the province’s Ministry of Heath, also examined the need for dedicated beds. They also created standardized guidelines on how the monitoring units should oper-

ate, taking into account safety aspects and the types of required medical personnel required. “We realized there were many barriers and challenges,” Whiting said, adding that one hurdle for patients was the lack of dedicated monitoring units, which meant long wait times and erratic care. CHEO’s new monitoringunit beds are two of 21 beds newly assigned for adult and pediatric patients with epilepsy or suspected epilepsy at hospitals in the University Health

Network, and in London, Hamilton, Toronto and Ottawa. Two weeks before CHEO’s unit opened, a similar two-bed unit for adults was opened at the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus. There is potential to expand CHEO’s monitoring unit, depending on the feedback that comes out of an ongoing evaluation process, Whiting said. But, just weeks after its launch, she said she is already pleased with the positive impact the unit is having in providing more comprehensive care to young patients. “We have more time, more resources, more people,” she said. “It’s good.” BY THE NUMBERS:

• More than 70,000: number of Ontarians living with epilepsy, including 10,000 children • 15,000: average number of people diagnosed with epilepsy each year, most of them under the age of 18 • 300,000: number of people in Canada with epilepsy • 46: average number of people diagnosed with epilepsy across Canada every day – most of them children.

Thirteen-year-old student Marie-Helene Barbeau of Gloucester makes her way across a newly installed climbing wall, with support from educational assistant Lorrie Conley, at Clifford Bowey Public School on May 27. The Telus Ottawa Community Board, the Community Foundation of Ottawa and the school council paid for the wall and other specialized equipment.

Community partners rally around Clifford Bowey school for gym equipment purchase News - With a smile on her face, Marie-Helene Barbeau gingerly makes her way across the length of a climbing wall, with help from educational assistant Lorrie Conley. After completing the exercise, the 13-year-old student quickly moves on to climb a foam climbing structure in the gym at Clifford Bowey Public School located near Walkley Road and Bank Street. Her smile and the smiles of many of her schoolmates are evidence that the newly installed specialized equipment, which includes the wall, giant mats,

foam building blocks, therapy balls and tactile stepping stones, among other items, is a very welcome addition to the school, which has 104 students who are developmentally delayed. Those smiles were made possible thanks to three community partners that contributed $30,000 for the purchase of the equipment. The Community Foundation of Ottawa contributed $15,000, the Telus Ottawa Community Board provided a $12,000 grant, and the balance was chipped in by the school council, made up of parents of students. “We appreciate the equipment makes a real difference in their enjoyment, in their fitness

levels and their opportunity to be together and learn together,” said Catherine Dubois, director of community engagement with the Community Foundation of Ottawa. The foundation, the Telus board and the council were

thanked by students and staff during a ceremony at the school on May 27, just a month after the equipment, designed for people with special needs, was installed. See EQUIPMENT, page 16

There is nothing quite as refreshing as a dip in the pool – or lake – on a scorching hot day. However, there are heightened safety precautions to take when it comes to children around any body of water. Always keep children within arms’ reach, in and around the water. Make sure they wear lifejackets or person flotation devices in and around the water. Most importantly, never leave a child alone, whether it’s in a swimming pool, lake, river, or bathtub. Speaking of tubs, children under the age of five should never use a hot tub – not even with an adult. Hot tubs are far too hot for young children, may contain large amounts of bacteria, and the drain in the hot tub can be a hazard to small kids.

The Child and Family Services Act does not identify an age when a child can be left alone, or an age at which a child can supervise or babysit other children. The Act recognizes that age alone is not a sufficient safeguard for the supervision of children. A person who has charge of a child less than 16 years of age cannot leave the child without making provision for his/her care or supervision that is reasonable under the circumstances.

Sawmill Creek Pedestrian and Cycling Pathway Now Open Sawmill Creek Pedestrian/Cycling Pathway from Brookfield to the Walkley transit station is now open to the public. This multi-use pathway is a new link for cyclists and pedestrians in Ottawa South. City Council has invested an unprecedented $28 million in Ottawa’s cycling network in the last four years. The Sawmill Creek pathway is another important step in providing added options for residents to move more easily across the city by bike and on foot. This pathway is an important north south transportation corridor, and will bring significant benefits to the residents of River Ward and from across our city. Sawmill Creek pathway is fully accessible and is open for residents of all ages to enjoy. The Sawmill Creek pathway runs from Brookfield to the Walkley transit station and connects to other pathways, at both the north and south ends, linking neighbouring communities. This project included the construction of two retaining walls along the Sawmill Creek and the installation of four culvert extensions to accommodate drainage. The new pathway is 1.2 km in length, 3.0 m wide, asphalt paved with a 1.5 m buffer on either side, and includes significant landscaping along the creek embankment and grading to accommodate accessibility.

“We’re the lucky ones aren’t we, because we have an opportunity to help contribute to additional equipment that perhaps, without our support, the school might be struggling to purchase,” she said. Increased hand-eye coordination, improved balance, development of gross-motor and targeting skills, as well as social and other physical benefits are just some of the ways the new play structures and equipment will help students, who range in age from four to 21, during physicaleducation and music-and-movement classes, said school principal Laurie Kavanagh. “We weren’t sure how they were going to respond to the climbing wall,” said Kavanagh, adding that for some students, such as those with autism, change can be a challenge. “But we’ve been amazed with how they want to go on that equipment. “They have so many physical

limitations and mobility challenges as well as the cognitive (limitations), so we’re trying to find a balance between all of that with equipment that’s engaging, stimulating, inviting, fun,” she said.

“I feel like I’ve got the best job in the world, just to see the impact that a small grant can have on people’s lives.” SHANNON GORMAN,

The addition of the new equipment motivates and challenges the students, and inspires the educators to develop creative ideas to develop an exciting gym program that encourages students with a range of physical limitations and cognitive challenges to become more physically active and have fun too, said physical education teacher Maureen Demarco-Omura, who took the

Olympians celebrate Ronald McDonald House anniversary Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News – Moments after meeting for the first time, 11year-old Jeremy Kilabuk and Paralympic alpine skier Josh Dueck chatted and laughed as though they were old friends. Both know what it takes to rise through adversity, while keeping a positive attitude. Kilabuk lost both his kidneys to cancer last November and since then the Nunavut resident has been living at Ronald McDonald House of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, next to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario where he receives dialysis treatments

four times a week. Dueck was paralyzed from the waist down after a ski accident in 2004, but went on to win silver and gold medals at the 2014 Sochi Paralympics. He was among about a dozen Canadian Olympians and Paralympians who helped mark the 30th anniversary of Ronald McDonald House on June 4, one of several stops during the Celebration of Excellence Heroes Tour. During the tour, about 200 athletes from the 2014 Sochi Winter Games visited elementary and secondary schools across Ottawa and the House of Commons on Parliament Hill, before heading on to

wrap up their tour in Alberta. Dueck said the opportunity to connect with young people, like Kilabuk, proved inspirational. “It’s really why we do it as athletes,” said Dueck, who is from Vernon, B.C. “Most of us, if not all of us, compete for our country and promote sport, health and well-being and kids are the future,” he said. “So if we have a chance to make it real by coming in and interacting with them and hearing their stories, it’s pretty cool.” Carrie Tucker smiled, as she watched her son laugh with the medal winner, who also carried the Canadian flag

during the Sochi closing ceremonies. “Today is amazing to see all these athletes and paraathletes who have overcome challenges, and it gives us hope that this could be Jeremy one day,” she said of her son, whose favourite sport is badminton. She was thrilled her son had the opportunity to meet Paralympians who have not let their physical limitations restrict their dreams. “It really shows him that it doesn’t matter – if you really want something you can work hard and get it,” Tucker said. For Para-snowboarder John Leslie, the visit to Ronald Mc-

Donald House was like coming home again. A decade ago his parents and sister lived at the house while he was being treated at CHEO for the same bone cancer that Terry Fox battled. Leslie lost his left leg below the knee. “Ten years ago if you would have told me I’d be standing here with a bunch of athletes from across Canada coming back from the Games I wouldn’t have believed you,” said Leslie, 21, who divides his time between Arnprior and Orléans. “It’s cool to be back and healthy and I appreciate everything you guys have done

for me and continue to do for me, so thank you,” Leslie said. He then joined pair figure skater Paige Lawrence in the ceremonial planting of a red Canadian Maple tree to mark the anniversary of Ronald McDonald House’s opening. As Marcel Aubut, president of the Canadian Olympic Committee, looked on, Carol Houston, executive director of Ronald McDonald House Ottawa, told Leslie and his fellow athletes they embody the Olympic spirit, and the ability to beat overwhelming odds. “I’m sure you’ll hear this over and over again, but you make us proud,” she said.

Record-breaking $7.1M raised during 31st CHEO Telethon Staff

News - Kind and caring describes those people who rallied behind the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario during its annual fundraising campaign, says the CHEO Foundation’s president. A record-setting $7,121,350 was the final total unveiled at the 7 p.m. close to the 12-hour CHEO Telethon at the Ernst & Young Centre on Sunday (June 8). It far surpassed the foundation’s goal to raise $6.8 million and left last year’s total of $6.7 million in the dust. “We are so fortunate to live in such a kind and caring community,” foundation president and chief executive officer Kevin Keohane said in a statement. “Children represent our future and the support that CHEO receives at telethon time and throughout the year enables the CHEO staff to provide them with the best possible care,” he said. The 31st telethon, which was broadcast live on CTV from 7 to 11 p.m. on June 7, and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on June 8, featured stories from

CHEO patients, doctors and nurses, as well as numerous cheque presentations from community supporters. The total figure raised includes funds generated online and over the phone during the telethon as well as from events throughout the year, including sales of merchandise that featured a super CHEO bear designed by Taylor Creighton, a Barrhaven resident who attends Grade 12 at Sir Robert Borden High School in Nepean. The financial donations will contribute to the purchase of specialized medical equipment, hospital renovations, and fund research into cancer, youth mental health and childhood obesity. New games, toys and crafts will also be bought to increase the comfort levels of patients during their stay at CHEO. “This weekend always has such a special feel as we get to acknowledge and appreciate all of the incredible people who do so much for the children and youth at CHEO,” Keohane said, before extending his thanks to everyone who contributed to the record-breaking total.

“You truly do make a difference in the lives of the families who need CHEO.” COSTUMES AND BARBECUE

Dress up as your favourite superhero, princess or in any costume of your choice and help make a difference during the 22nd-annual CHEO barbecue in Gloucester on June 14. There will be entertainment, beach volleyball and ultimate Frisbee tournaments and a one-kilometre family walk, led by members of Ottawa’s League of Superheroes, who dress as wellknown superheroes. The fun will also include a family zone and barbecue pit. Proceeds generated through the event will go to CHEO. To date, more than $500,000 has been raised through the sport tournament, which draws 1,000 participants and relies on more than 200 volunteers each year. The fundraiser will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Potvin Arena, located at 813 Shefford Rd. For details, visit cheobbq.com.

Continuing east-west bikeway city a priority for 2014 up. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said the intent is making the route bidirectional, whether that means having both north- and southbound lanes on O’Connor, which is a oneway southbound street, or by having northbound cyclists use Metcalfe Street. “It’s hugely important,” he said. Having a dedicated bike route that’s safer – whether it’s delineated with a painted line, segregated with posts or separated from traffic as a raised cycle track – would encourage people to use their bikes to get downtown and to Lansdowne, Chernushenko said. Bank Street was designed with wider sidewalks and no bike lanes when it was rebuilt three years ago and north-south cycle lanes on further west on Lyon and Percy streets aren’t continuous, he said.

News - The city is touting $70 million it intends to sink into 79 cycling projects over the next 15 years. Councillors received an update on bicycle projects and policies during a transportation committee meeting on June 4. The financial commitment for the next 15 years is $70 million, or around $4.6 million a year. That’s a reduction from the annual investment in cycling made over this term of council, which has seen the city invest $28 million since the 2010 election, although city staff said another $40 million is intended to be “available” for major cycling projects. The $70 million represents the cycling projects outlined in the “affordability plan” as part of the city’s transportation master plan update last fall. It includes 40 cycling facility projects to be completed in the first phase before 2019 and 39 projects in the decade after. The plan includes three major projects – pedestrian and cycling bridges at the old Prince of Wales rail bridge over the Ottawa River, a Donald-Somerset connection and a bridge near Lansdowne at Fifth Avenue and Clegg. The east-west bikeway – an extension of the Laurier Avenue segregated bike lane – is the major project in the city’s core. It will connect Westboro through downtown to Vanier, though the entire route won’t be segregated with collapsible poles, like the Laurier section. The portions east of Elgin Street in Sandy Hill, Lowertown and Vanier are to be completed this year. A “missing link” from Laurier to Albert Street is also priority, a project set to get underway in 2015. After the light-rail system comes online in 2018, there are cycle tracks planned for Albert Street, which currently forms the westbound portion of the bus Transitway.

The city’s cycling initiatives also include adding bike parking, include 150 new ring-and-post sites and a new pilot project to add on-street bike parking “corrals” in two vehicle parking spaces in Wellington West and one in the Glebe.

•Albion Road (Tullamore to Lester) •Carp Road (Richardson Side Road to Donald B. Munro) • Corkstown Road (Moodie to March) • Leitrim Road (Bowesville to Albion) • Rideau Valley Drive South (Richard Stevens to Dorack)

Another downtown project in the works is an extension of O-Train pathway that opened in 2013. The new section would extend from Young Street to Carling Avenue, with a signalized crossing at Carling. In the Glebe, a series of cyclinglane projects are underway with a view to easing access to Lansdowne Park when it re-opens sporting events in July. Holmwood, Glebe, First and Fifth avenues will form the east-west access. Further east, a bike lane is being

Cyclist honoured for her advocacy Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - Riding a bicycle is more than a just a way to get around for Vanier resident Sarah Partridge, who was recently honoured for her contribution to the cycling community. Since moving to the neighbourhood, she has been involved with nurturing the local cycling community. Starting with joining the community association, Partridge helped create the association’s subcommittee, Vanier Cycles, and invited all area cyclists to participate in promoting cycling. From there, Partridge has led the fight for better bike lanes and routes in the east end and helped launch the neighbourhood’s annual bike festival, which takes place each June. It’s easy to see how Partridge has changed the way people think about bicycles. Recently awarded the Bruce Timmermans Award for her advocacy of cycling, Partridge said she just wanted to participate in the conversation and to

promote riding to work. After learning she’d won the award, Partridge said she was surprised and credited the achievement to the community. “Really, I know this award is for an individual, but it would not have happened if not for the strong community that made it possible,” she said. SAFE CYCLING

According to the city’s website, Bruce Timmermans was a long-time cycling educator and advocate, an active member of the Ottawa Bicycle Club and a founding member of Citizens for Safe Cycling. Each year the city hands out one individual award and one group award. The individual award honours an exemplary citizen who has proactively and publicly promoted the benefits of cycling as a principal mode of transportation. In only two years, Partridge has accomplished this and more. The creation of the Vanier Velo Fest last year was a big part of that, an event that encouraged everyone in

from local partners. But aside from organizing festivals, Partridge and

her cycling committee have taken an active interest in the east-west bikeway, and ensuring the east-end connections not only get made, but make sense. Most recently, at the suggestion from the committee, Partridge led an effort to see Vanier- and Overbrookspecific paths were added to the official bikeway plans. Partridge said she still has a lot of work to do to get cycling routes in the east end up to snuff. First up is continuing work to get bicycle lanes on St. Patrick Bridge. Currently, more than seven community associations have joined the fight. “I’m hopeful that we will be successful,” Partridge said. When asked if she ever gets weary of her community involvement, Partridge said she and the community are just getting started. “None of the initiatives would be possible without the Vanier community’s support and interest,” Partridge said. “I feel all this work is simply raising Vanier’s cycling profile and that we love to bike. I hope it inspires others to become involved.”

Betsy’s favourite game is playing fetch – she will be wellmatched in a home with older or dog-savvy kids who can throw around the ball with her, take her on walks and enjoy her playful personality! Betsy is a very social gal and likes the company of other dogs but would do best with other four-legged friends who will respect her space. She would benefit from an experienced owner who can help her be the best pooch possible with obedience training.

This month, Quartier Vanier is installing 31 new waste receptacles along the BIA’s three main streets. Unlike the previous 20 garbage bins placed in the neighbourhood --purchased by the BIA in 2008 for $7,770 -- these bins were provided by the city and did not cost the BIA anything. So far, 10 bins have been installed, with the remainder to be put soon, said the BIA’s operations manager Sam Stevenson. “These cans are more durable and sturdy, aesthetically appealing, and consistent with the streets,” Stevenson said. The city will be emptying the bins and taking care of them, also at no cost to the BIA. Stevenson said the BIA began working with the city last fall on bringing in new receptacles to the area and said he is really pleased with the results. According to Suzan Proulx, chairwoman of the resident-led cleaning and beautification group, Vanier Beautification, the bins were an improvement and she is pleased with their addition to the neighbourhood.

David Chung is ready to take the next step in an already impressive and flourishing soccer career, and for the U14-aged Ottawa South United Force player, that means trying to land a spot with Canada’s under-15 national team program. The OSU standout is in Toronto for a June 1-6 national camp as the U15 men’s side readies for competition in September.

Proulx added the look and feel of the new receptacles match the benches along the streets, creating continuity and being attached to the ground, they are more secure. The opening for placing garbage is also larger, improving the odds of garbage making it in to the bins. “I feel that overall this is a positive change and will encourage the general population to be more mindful of their environment,” Proulx said.

Crossing the Finish Line

Chung, who began playing soccer at age 3 and says he fell in love with the sport instantly, previously represented Canada in the 2012 Danone Nations Cup, a 40-country event that took him to Poland. Most recently, the midfielder/striker showcased his skills for the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer during a one-week visit along with OSU Club Head Coach Paul Harris. “That was a big highlight for me,” signals Chung, who carries hopes of playing professionally in Europe in the future. “Just to be there and around those players, it was such a big deal for me. It was amazing.” During their stint in Vancouver, the OSU pair met up with Vana Markarian, a member of Ottawa’s first Ontario Youth Soccer League-champion team last summer who joined the Whitecaps youth academy earlier this year. “This isn’t a fluke,” Harris highlights. “(Chung) isn’t the first player from our club to have a chance like this.” Other players from the OSU Force Academy who have competed for their country in the past year include Kris Twardek (U17 Czech Republic), Vana Markarian (U17 Canada) and Zoom Langwa (U16 Canada). Those trailblazers have set the stage for numerous talented OSU prospects such as Chung to move on to higher levels of play, Harris notes. Combined with one of the country’s best training atmospheres for young players to reach their soccer dreams at OSU, Chung’s work ethic has been key to building his bright future in the game, details the former Everton FC academy coach. “We as a group have such high hopes for David, and many others within our club,” Harris indicates. “He has really excelled and he has just taken everything we have given him and hasn’t looked back.” A member of the Force’s undefeated U14 OYSL entry, Chung concurs that OSU has brought out the best in him. “It is such a good club and I am so happy to be part of it,” states the Goulbourn Middle School student. “They are so organized, everyone is so great and helpful and I can’t say enough good things on how the coaches have helped me.”

Chung’s focus for the camp is on impressing another set of coaches and earning a spot on Team Canada. “I like my chances,” he says, acknowledging nonetheless that there are many other talented players who also crave a spot on the team. “I’m not nervous because I know what I am capable of. I am just going to go out and show what I’ve got.” President Bill Michalopulos added that “David is the latest OSU player to show the aptitude and determination to have an opportunity at the next level. As a club, our primary goal is to provide for and facilitate these unique opportunities to deserving OSU players and to also deliver the proper technical environment to get the best out of our players. Continuous successes in OSU players obtaining these type of opportunities indicate that the OSU Force Academy is on the right track in leading player development in Ottawa and the Province of Ontario.

News - Transit will be among the key topics of discussion at this year s Vanier Community Association annual general meeting. The meeting will take place at the Centre Pauline-Charron on June 16 at 7 p.m. and the association will welcome John Manconi, OC Transpo general manager, as a guest speaker, who will talk about some of the transit issues in the neighborhood. In February, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and the community association organized a transit meeting where residents discussed topics ranging from bus stops to transit routes and Manconi’s appearance at the meeting a way of following up, said Mike Bulthuis, president of the association. “I think this is a great opportunity for our neighbourhood,” he said. NEW BEGINNINGS

Bulthuis said the board is hoping for a good turnout, both because of the chance to talk transit as well as the opportunity to join the board. There will be five positions open, including the role of president currently held by

Bulthuis, who took on the position in 2012. “In recent years, we’ve seen the association membership grow – something evident both in numbers and in participation at events and meetings alike -- even our monthly Board meetings,” Bulthuis said. “More and more residents are learning about the association. With that growth, there are new ideas and new energy. I’m keen to support that and excited for others to take the lead.” Bulthuis said the highlight for him as both the president and a board member has been getting to know new members of the community, each who bring a different perspective to the neighbourhood. “I’ll miss the regular interaction with many of those connections,” he said. “At the same time, I still love the neighbourhood -- and I’m sure I’ll find ways to stay engaged.” When asked how many hours he thinks he or any of the other board members have spent over the past years, he said it was hard to say, but that at any given time, it could be close to 15 hours a month. The other board members who are leaving include, Luc Turgeon, Kristina Sparkes, Dan Shipley, and Rose Anne Leonard.

Bailley Taylor invites everyone to come out to try out the new Youth Safe Zone on Fridays at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health.

       

New Friday night space for youth Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Staff at the Wabano Centre are hoping a revamped space in the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement will become the place to be for young people on Friday nights. The Youth Safe Zone at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health will be open every week from 3 to 8 p.m. for young people 13 and up to let loose on a Friday night. The events will also include drug prevention programming which will vary in length, but program coordinator Bailley Taylor said the main point is simply for kids to have a place to go and have a good time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want it to be a safe place that they want to come to,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is this safe zone is keeping the kids off the street and giving them something to do, and really that is part of drug prevention, too.â&#x20AC;? The improvements to the

basement area include computers, gaming systems, a music studio, arts and crafts area and a lounge area for those who show up. Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structured portion of the evening will be anything but, she said. Growing up on a reservation where drugs and alcohol abuse was all around her, she said the experience helped her choose to say no. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned from watching other people screw up all around me. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if I only reach out to one student out of 30, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still one and hopefully it will spread to the others. I want Fridays to be a place where they can come and feel comfortable and want to be here.â&#x20AC;? What she plans to do is bring in speakers, bring in examples of how much drugs can ruin a life and make the learning hands on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be about reading or listening to a lec-

ture -- they do that all day in school. When they come here we want to make it fun and want to learn.â&#x20AC;? The drug prevention portion of the evening will be short, and after, any students who participated are welcome to stay in the centre until 8 p.m. doing as they please, including making dinner for themselves and other students. Dinner will be provided by the Wasa-nabin youth kitchen, another Wabano program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great, they will learn how to cook and clean as well,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. Funding for the programming has been provided by the federal and provincial governments. Although only 15 youth can participate in the kitchen program, the Safe Zone can take an unlimited amount of students Taylor said.

If your house burns down, learn from it: Dragon Arlene Dickinson of Dragon’s Den discusses learning from failure with Ottawa entrepreneurs

to learn, she said. “It’s so critical that we do that,” especially as entrepreneurs tend to charge ahead, said Dickinson. After touching on personal anecdotes of failure, near failure and living with little to go on, Dickinson finished her speech by sharing one last story as an example of what a leader should tell those they lead. In this case, it was General Walter Natynczyk speaking to his soldiers on the front lines. Dickinson joined a group of rock stars and former NHL hockey players to meet with Canadian troops in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and was asked to speak with soldiers on the front lines. While there, she heard Natynczyk give his speech to the troops. “‘I’m the general, I’m your leader, I’m fighting with you,’” said Natynczyk.

News - Dozens of Ottawa entrepreneurs gathered to hear life lessons from a woman who has been through fire and back. Either through her work on the popular television show Dragon’s Den as one of five venture capitalists who interview entrepreneurs seeking funding, or in her personal life leading up to financial success, Arlene Dickinson had plenty of advice to share with Ottawa-area business owners, making a point not to focus on success. Dickinson spoke to a full room at the Brookstreet Hotel on June 9 for a breakfast series hosted by Metroland Media as part of Entrepreneur Week, which runs from June 2-13. Dickinson and Farm Boy CEO Jeff York made presentations to entrepreneurs and business owners, with York starting off with a bit of reflection. “The first thing you have to do is you have to buy a mirror,” said York about beginning your own business. The comment elicited a chuckle from the crowd, but York went on to explain one of the most important ingredients in a successful business is a good team, and to put together a good team, you have to know what you already have. Returning to the mirror metaphor, York said, “Whatever is looking back at you, that’s what is going to be your problem in life.” York encouraged entrepreneurs to find complementary personalities to their own, and not make a team out of people like them. Rather, look for hunters and farmers, he said: those that will go for the kill, and those that will tend to the flock. Dickinson’s speech touched on leadership as well, and not just knowing that mistakes will happen,

CEO of Venture Communications and Dragon’s Den venture capitalist Arlene Dickinson speaks to entrepreneurs and business owners on June 9 at the Brookstreet Hotel during a breakfast series hosted by Metroland Media for Entrepreneur Week. but learning from them and sharing lessons learned. Dickinson’s strongest example of that idea came from her father, she said, and no more so than on one particular day when Dickinson’s sister was cooking. As she was returning home one day, Dickinson saw a fire truck near her house. As she approached, she

saw it was indeed parked in front of her home, where her dad was speaking to children on their front yard, and her older sister was crying. Asking a firefighter what had happened, he explained that Dickinson’s sister had been cooking chicken and left the oil on, which had caught fire and burned much of the top floor. No one was hurt, he said.

But, when she asked what her dad was up to, the firefighter explained that her father had asked permission from the school across the road to bring some students over to show them what can happen if you are cooking and don’t pay attention. While the scene was comical, Dickinson said her father taught her how important it is to take a moment

Natynczyk conceded that he did not know what would happen, and could not, but that he would make sure they knew when he did, said Dickinson. He said that other armed forces members wish they were serving at the front lines, but that those here were specially selected because of their skill set. Those who are going home soon must not think about that, but focus on their duty until they are done, he continued. He reiterated that the work they were doing had to be done, and that every Canadian thanked them for it. That is what people want to know at the beginning of their day, said Dickinson: that their leader is with them, that they are needed, that they were chosen because they know what they are doing, and that what they are doing matters. Ending off with her own call to arms, Dickinson encouraged those in the room to start the business they have been dreaming of and try to make it work. “There is only one thing stopping you in this country, and that’s yourself,” she said. “Go set the world on fire.”

Wynne promises to make LRT a priority Liberal government is only one that will see project through: premier Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

KATRICE SUTHERLAND/METROLAND

Tim Hudak, right, and Lisa MacLeod answer questions from an audience of more than 300 supporters, regarding the PC party’s plans to save money by wiping out the Drive Clean program on June 4.

Penny-pinching, job-making Hudak News - Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak made it clear to Ottawa supporters that a PC government would not fuel the second phase of Ottawa’s light rail during the rally at Nepean Sportsplex on June 4. Hudak claimed the Liberals left too large a deficit in their term to promise a budget for more than the first half of the project. The PC party does not plan to revoke funds for phase one of the project, which is already underway,

News – Ontario Premier Katheen Wynne travelled to Ottawa’s east end on June 4, making an appearance at Ottawa-Orléans Liberal candidate Marie-France Lalonde’s office. Her hot topic was transit, specifically the light rail transit phase two extension. As she spoke, a map of the extension hung in the background. She promised, if elected, to make funding the second phase a priority. The second phase would bring the LRT to Place d’Orléans. “Marie-France knows, and I know, how important this project is to the people of Orléans,” Wynne said to Liberal supporters inside the campaign office on Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard. BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

however the route planned to extend from Tunney’s Pasture to Bayshore will be put on the shelf indefinitely. “Tim and I met with Mayor Watson with respect to LRT,” said MacLeod. “They don’t have formal submission into the province yet, so I suspect that they won’t until after their municipal election. For now, it’s speculative,” she said. See PCs, page 33

Wynne said the Liberal government will divide $29 billion in transit and infrastructure projects into two different funds that are based on population, stating Ottawa’s gridlock is unacceptable. One fund would be for the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton, the other a $14 billion fund for the rest of the province. She claimed Tim Hudak would fund projects in the GTA over Ottawa. “(Hudak will) take your LRT and plunk it down as a subway in down-

town Toronto,” she said. “There’s already rivalry, do we need more?” Wynne said the Progressive Conservative party will not be committed to transit and infrastructure projects outside of Toronto, and there were “years of neglect” and a backlog of projects when the Liberals came into power. She highlighted Liberal successes through the last term to the crowd of all Liberal supporters and recognized

outgoing MPP Phil McNeely who is retiring. She said Marie-France Lalonde is a strong candidate for the area. Lalonde thanked Wynne and said she was inspired by her leadership as she introduced the province’s premier. “I’m proud to serve my community under her leadership,” Lalonde said.

Liberals make first run under Wynne Continued from page 32

Wynne also said the Liberals will fund the Ottawa River Action Plan, which affects Orléans’ Petrie Island. She didn’t elaborate on questions about whether or not she would consider an alliance with the NDP. “I have worked in a minority parliament for the last 16 months. If that’s what the people of

Ontario chose, we will continue to work in a minority with whoever the government is,” she said. “Beyond that, the hypotheticals get very abstract.”’ Hudak was in Orléans very early on in the campaign to help open Progressive Conservative candidate Andrew Lister’s office. The same day Wynne was at Lalonde’s office, Hudak made an Ottawa appearance at a Nepean town hall.

PCs talk debt reduction Continued from page 32

Hudak added that any politician with a billion-dollar deficit promising projects worth billions more, is not going to deliver. “I’m so confident that with less government debt, lower taxes and affordable hydro we can create more jobs in the province of Ontario,” said Hudak. And exuding confidence Hudak repeated a promise telling voters that he would resign if he could not keep his promises on the million jobs plan coming to fruition over its projected eight years. Hudak’s main goals, should his party be elected, are to “balance the books and reduce spending.” The Tory leader says his first step will be to reduce the size and cost of government by cutting his cabinet staff from 26 down to 16 ministers. He intends to cut the cur-

rent 1.2 million workers in broader public sector down to 1.1 million to match the number of bureaucratic positions existing in 2009. He also intends to freeze wages of politicians across the board for at least two years, seeking to save $2 billion a year. It was stated that Liberals added 300,000 bureaucratic jobs to government during its term and lost the same amount in manufacturing jobs. The PC’s million jobs plan aims to eliminate middle management in order to protect front-line positions, Hudak said. As people begin to retire, the PC’s will not fill new positions, allowing attrition to resolve the debt problems and help the party resist over-expenditure. Nepean resident John MacMillon is one of 60,000 people in equestrian industries affected by the Liberal plan regarding racetracks and casinos.

“The Liberals almost decimate the industry, put a thousand jobs in Ottawa at risk and then hand out a subsidy,” said MacLeod. “The horse people of Ontario are not asking for welfare, they are asking for opportunity.” Hudak says he will permanently shelve the modernization plan and instead build around the horse track on a smaller scale to ensure job protection. Students and community members in the crowd voiced concerns regarding tuition fees and the survival of small town colleges, asking if the Tories would continue the Liberal education plan. Due to high expenses of the plan, the answer was no. However, Hudak guaranteed that all students who have achieved the necessary grades would not be disqualified or restrained from education because of financial barriers.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, June 12, 2014

Art, Aboriginal culture and history to be highlighted at LeBreton Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The National Capital Commission wants to know which elements of three themes – history, aboriginal culture and art – people would like to see in new public areas at LeBreton Flats. The federal agency plans to spend up to $700,000 to make improvements to three corners of the vacant Booth Street and Wellington Street intersection. The themes emerged from a May 13 consultation the NCC held. Richard Daigneault, the NCC’s lead on the project, said he wants feedback on which ideas and elements should be incorporated into the new public spaces. “It could include different aspects of each theme and maybe a combination,” he said. The historical theme, titled “Homage,” is centred on the history of the flats as an in-

dustrial area with pulp and paper manufacturing with a working-class heritage. David Flemming of Heritage Ottawa was encouraged to see the concepts presented because he said Ottawa needs to do a better job of recognizing the history of the labourers who built the capital. “One of the things that’s always been lacking on the flats is a real appreciation of what it has been to the city of Ottawa,” Flemming said. “This was the industrial transportation centre of the city, before it was the capital ... So I think we need somewhere to do this.” Flemming suggested merging the “Homage” theme and interpretive signs with a theme suggested to honour the Aboriginal experience of the site, titled “Pimisi Gateway.” That theme suggests building large landscape art using soil and grass landforms integrated with water and floral elements to celebrate the Algonquin nation’s cultural symbol, the Kichisippi pimisi (eel), which

the future light-rail station at the site is named after. The third theme, “Capital Art-scape,” resonated most with Nour Aoudé, a blogger and urban decoder for Youthful Cities, a global initiative to rank the world’s top 100 cities from a youth perspective. The theme aims to make the area into a creative space with public art, community art programs and interactive elements. “I like the forward-looking side,” Aoudé said. Art and contemporary design speaks to me and what I want Ottawa to look like. The NCC will collect suggestions and bring the final plan to the NCC’s board of directors for approval, likely in September. The concepts can be viewed at ncc-ccn. gc.ca and comments can be sent to info@ ncc-ccn.ca Construction would begin next summer and would be completed by 2017, Daigneault said.

$125,000 offered to a city group to solve food security Challenge aims to create long-term solution’s News - The Community Foundation of Ottawa is offering $125,000 to an organization which aims to solve this city’s food security issue. The foundation announced the launch of the New Leaf Community Challenge and the grant funding at one of the city’s Good Food Markets, at the Nanny Goat Hill Community Garden on May 31. The grant will be offered to the group which develops

the best approach to improving the community’s access to affordable, nutritious food. According to president of the foundation, Marco Pagani, the group picked food security above other issues such as affordable housing and civic engagement as the first challenge because of the disturbing trend of residents who rely on food banks. “We feel that helping to provide better access to nutritious, affordable food is definitely the right place to start,” Pagani said.

According to the Community Foundation of Ottawa, currently more than 75,000 people in Ottawa worry they don’t have enough food to feed themselves or their families due to finances and living situations. The plan is for the winning organization to find a longterm solution to the problem. Established in 1987, the foundation connects donors with causes. It has served as a resource for people who address issues and concerns and aims to make new opportuni-

2014 Zoning Review – Phase 2 Notice of Public Information Sessions

(future realigned Greenbank Road to Jockvale Road);

Notice of Completion of Environmental Study Report

Why? In 2013 City Council approved new Official Plan policies to create a more liveable Ottawa. To put these policies into action, the Zoning By-law needs to be updated. In some review areas, changes to existing Secondary Plans will also be made to permit the zoning updates to proceed.

The Environmental Study Report (ESR) for the Cambrian Road Widening Environmental Assessment (future realigned Greenbank Road to Jockvale Road) has been completed and has been placed on record June 12, 2014 for a 30-day public review period. In March 2013, the City of Ottawa initiated the Environmental Assessment for the proposed widening of Cambrian Road between the future Re-Aligned Greenbank Road and Jockvale Road. This study has been completed in accordance with the requirements for a Schedule “C” project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, 2011, which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Both the Barrhaven South Community Design Plan, (approved by Council in June 2006) and the City of Ottawa Transportation Master Plan (2013) identifies the requirement for widening of Cambrian Road from two to four lanes to accommodate future growth in the community.

The Part II Order request must be received by the Minister of the Environment during the 30 day review period and a copy of the request should be forwarded to the City of Ottawa. If there are no requests received by July 14, 2014, the project will be considered to have met the requirements of the Municipal Class EA, and the project will proceed, provided that funding is available, to design and construction as presented in the ESR.

How will this affect me? Zoning affects how land can be used on both public and private properties. It regulates things like types of housing, shops, schools, industries, as well as building heights and building densities. The right zoning will make sure our streets and neighbourhoods develop in ways that encourage vibrant, liveable places for all to enjoy.

Poutine basks in new flavours when done on the grill Lifestyle - Now this is truly Canadian comfort food done on the barbecue. Jazz it up even more with sprinkled cooked bacon, crumbled cooked sausage, hot jalapeĂąo peppers or caramelized onion or create a poutine bar and serve small bowls of each topping. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 10 minutes. Grilling time: 10 minutes. Serves four to six. INGREDIENTS

â&#x20AC;˘ 5 unpeeled white potatoes, each cut into eight wedges (about 2 cm/3/4-inch) thick â&#x20AC;˘ 1 can (284 mL) beef gravy â&#x20AC;˘ 25 ml (2 tbsp) red wine (optional) â&#x20AC;˘ 1 sprig fresh rosemary â&#x20AC;˘ 10 ml (2 tsp) Worcestershire sauce â&#x20AC;˘ 15 ml (1 tbsp) olive oil â&#x20AC;˘ 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt â&#x20AC;˘ Black pepper â&#x20AC;˘ 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) cheese curds (about 200 g) â&#x20AC;˘ 1 green onion, thinly sliced PREPARATION

In a large pot of lightly

salted water, cover and bring potatoes to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just barely fork-tender, about ďŹ ve minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the gravy, wine (if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using it), rosemary and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for two minutes to blend the ďŹ&#x201A;avours. Remove the pan from the heat, discard the rosemary and keep warm. Drain the potatoes and pat them dry. In a medium bowl, stir together the potatoes and oil, and add salt and pepper to taste. Place potatoes on a greased rectangular grill topper or in ďŹ&#x201A;at grill basket in single layer. Place on a covered grill

over medium-high heat for six to nine minutes or until the potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally. Place the potatoes in a 20centimetre (eight-inch) round or square disposable foil container. Reduce the heat to low. Sprinkle the potatoes with cheese curds and return them to the grill to cook, covered, until the cheese is slightly melted -about three minutes. Serve on individual plates and drizzle each with 25 to 45 mL of gravy or serve in a container drizzled with most of the gravy, leaving some for those who like lots. Sprinkle with green onion.

Bus lanes planned for the middle of Baseline Rd. Cycling tracks added to project to rebuild as a six-lane road Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The growing pains of transitioning Baseline Road into a rapid bus transit corridor were on display at a June 2 meeting. The city is finalizing plans to widen Baseline Road between Bayshore station and Prince of Wales Drive in phases starting in 2019 or 2020 to provide a dedicated bus lane in each direction. While many of the 20 or so people in attendance were excited about the possibility of quicker transit, they were also concerned about the problems this new format of “Transitway” could cause. Engineers are recommending Ottawa’s first median transit facility, which would see the two bus lanes in the centre of traffic, bordered by two lanes for vehicles closer to the curb. Residents have been expressing concerns about the safety of having to walk into the middle of the road to catch the bus, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, but that’s just because they haven’t been given a visual of what it would look like. “But I think once people have pictures of how that works they’ll be reassured,”

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Participants make notes on a map outlining the city’s plans for a rapid-transit corridor on Baseline Road during a June 2 meeting at Ben Franklin Place. he said. “The way they are going to do it is really safe.” There would be a full bus stop, with a shelter and a wide enough median to allow passengers to safely wait for the bus, said David Hopper, an engineer with Delcan who is working on the project. The bus stops would be located at intersections or pedestrian crossings that would provide a safe way for people to get to the median bus stops, he said. The location of the bus stops caused other concerns for some residents. While route 118 that currently runs on Baseline is considered to

be a local route with the stops spaced 150 to 300 metres apart, the future rapid transit would see those stops spaced out to between 300 and 600 metres apart. “The fewer times the bus stops, the faster it runs,” Hopper said. “It’s a trade off between having enough bus stops and the speed.” That worried Carol Ruel, a Centrepointe resident and bus user, who said depending on the locations of the stops it might become more difficult for her to get to the bus. Bob McCaw of the Fisher Heights and Area Community Association said he likes the

plan and the efficient speed of buses. “Our concern is where the stops are,” he said. McCaw was also perplex by why the city wants to end the rapid-transit corridor at Prince of Wales Drive instead of extending it across the Rideau River to connect with the Confederation O-Train station on Heron Road. “At the west end, it’s focused on certain terminals, but at the east end there is no terminal,” McCaw said. “There has to be a decent connection between these buses and the O-Train, otherwise what’s the point of having faster buses?”

Several people in attendance, including McCaw, were encouraged by the late addition of cycle tracks along Baseline – a raised bicycle lane along the sidewalk to separate cyclists from vehicular traffic. Andrea D’Agostino of the Queensway-Terrance South Ridgeview Community Association said the multi-modal aspect of the redesigned corridor is appealing to her and makes it more accessible to all users. Hans Moor, president of the local advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling and a resident of the area, said the bike

route is a great option and the city’s last chance to create an east-west cycling route in the area because the city chose to put “sharrow” markings on Meadowlands Drive to indicate that cyclists and motorists should share the lane. “We missed that opportunity ... (Now) Baseline is basically the last opportunity in old Nepean for the next 50 years to build an east-west connection,” he said. The first phase of the project, from Prince of Wales to Clyde Avenue, would be widened to six lanes with a dedicated bus lane in each direction. The city might have to acquire a small amount of additional land to widen the road, but most of that width can be accommodated within the existing road right-of-way, said the city’s manager for the project, Jabbar Siddique. The second phase, between Clyde and Baseline Station, has lower traffic volumes and would remain as a four-lane road with buses mixing with traffic until the traffic counts warrant a change, likely after 2025. The third section completing the route all the way west to Bayshore Station wouldn’t happen until after 2031 because it’s not deemed affordable as part of the city’s new transportation master plan last fall. The city has also been planning for a similar format median rapid bus transit lanes on March Road in Kanata North Ward, but that route will likely be built slightly after the Baseline facility, Siddique said.

University honours anatomy donors at annual memorial service Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News – John said father’s decision, made at the age of 81, was a surprise at first. He said his father – a farmer from a small northern Ontario town – probably didn’t have much more than a Grade 9 education. “It seemed odd that he’d want to donate his body to science,” John said. “But I realized it was just another way for him to give back.” Hartley Houston decided to donate his body to the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa while his

granddaughter was studying to be a physiotherapist. “He said, ‘Someone donated their body so my granddaughter could be a physiotherapist,’” his son John said during a memorial service hosted by the University at the Pinecrest Cemetery on June 3. “ ‘Someone did it for her; I have to do it for someone else.’” John said his father lived a modest lifestyle, but never failed to help out a neighbour. He was a member of the Lions Club, a volunteer with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and the Canadian Cancer Society. Cathy Delany, whose parents donated their bodies 27 years apart, said it took her 20 years to attend the annual

memorial hosted by the university. Her mother, who died from cancer in 1974, was the first. “Mom’s always been able to find ways to help others,” Delany said. “Leave it to her to find a way to help after death.” Her ashes are buried at the Pinecrest Cemetery. Delany’s father, Bill, followed suit in 2007 – though his ashes were scattered on a ski slope, sailable water and in Vancouver’s English Bay. “I am honoured to be part of this ceremony,” Delany said to the students. “My parent’s gift was for you. You are part of their legacy.” Elise Azzi, a second-year medical student at the university said she was at a loss

to express her thanks to the family members of those who had donated their bodies. “They humanize our education experience and exemplify bravery, altruism and selflessness,” she said. As part of the ceremony, medical students read off the name of each donor since 1969.

Patrick Marshall, spiritual care counsellor at the University of Ottawa, leads the crowd in a prayer during the University’s memorial service for those who have donated their bodies to science at the Pinecrest Cemetery on June 3. JENNIFER MCINTOSH/METROLAND

Switching churches a serious topic for Audrey

B

eing Lutheran is no fun,” Audrey said for the umpteenth time that morning. Mother let out a loud sigh, and I knew what was coming next, because my sister on the rare occasions she even bothered to discuss with me anything the least bit serious, had talked about this very thing. “Why can’t we have more Sunday picnics like the Uniteds? Beatrice said there are at least two more picnics this summer, and we Lutherans have yet to have even one.” Audrey was wiping the oilcloth on the kitchen table, and she was rubbing so hard I thought she was going to rub out the checked red and white pattern. Then she took the argument even further by suggesting she saw no reason why she couldn’t go to the United Church and the rest of the family stay Lutheran. Well, that tore it. Mother sat Audrey down at one end of the table, just by pointing her finger to the nearest chair, and she sat at the other end.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories There was nothing I liked better than a good heated discussion, and I knew I was about to witness a dandy. Nothing bothered Mother more than to have one of us argue about going to church. Even though we came from what Aunt Lizzie called a divided household, to Mother going to the Lutheran church every Sunday was just as important as doing the washing on Monday’s and having our weekly bath on Saturday night. There were no questions asked as far as going to church was concerned, and only a calamity of the highest order would keep us away. Mother told Audrey you didn’t go to church to have fun. You were there to learn about the bible, and listen to a good message.

I thought it was a good time to bring up the subject of our divided household, since we were talking church and all. I had no idea what it meant when Aunt Lizzie had come from Regina one time and as well as declaring Mother as “not being of the best farm material she had ever seen,” she also said Mother created what was called a divided household for her brother – my father. So I dared to ask, what was a divided household? Mother ignored my question, but my sister Audrey jumped right in and said, “It means Father is a Lutheran, and Mother is a Catholic.” Well, that was all news to me. The nearest Catholic church was in Renfrew and not once did we ever go to a

church service in the Catholic church in Renfrew. How could Mother be a Catholic and not go to church every Sunday? Now, she did have a rosary, and she wouldn’t eat meat on Fridays, and on occasion I did see her cross herself, but that’s as far as it went. Why, we often sang on the street corner with the Salvation Army band in Renfrew – did that make us Salvation Army members? Anyway, as far as Mother was concerned the discussion was over, and Audrey and I headed for the swing in the grape arbour. I told Audrey I didn’t want to go to one church and have her go to another. I told her about the time she was asked to sing a hymn and how I tingled from my head to my toes with pride, and how everyone said she sang like a bird, and I just knew she would be asked to sing again someday. Whose shoulder could I lean against when I nodded off during the sermon? Certainly not my brother Emerson’s. I couldn’t tell by looking at Audrey, sitting across from me in the swing, if I had been able to convince her to stay

a Lutheran. I had to think of something that would leave no doubt in her mind that going to the United Church just wasn’t a good idea. Then it hit me right out of the blue. “I hear Shirley’s brother from the Barr Line is going to join the Lutheran Church. Remember how he chose your

more to the story. “Shirley said he is now old enough to drive the car too. He loves to go into Renfrew to the picture shows.” I had my fingers crossed behind my back, which was supposed to get rid of the sin of telling a lie. I sure hoped it worked, because I had no idea if Shirley’s family even owned a car – they

as far as Mother was concerned the discussion was over, and Audrey and I headed for the swing in the grape arbour cake at the cake auction at our church? Cost him a whole quarter too. He sure had the sweets on you.” I had no idea in the world whether or not Shirley’s brother had any intention of joining the Lutheran church, but this issue called for drastic measures, and if that meant telling a little white lie, so be it. Audrey got a dreamy look in her eyes, which was a very good sign. I thought I would seal the deal by adding a bit

came to church in a horse and buggy. Well, that did the trick. Audrey put her head back in the swing, and pushed the boards gently with her feet, and the swing squeaked back and forth in a steady rhythm. I knew she was thinking of trips into Renfrew to the picture show, and Shirley’s brother sitting in a pew in the Lutheran Church. Joining the United Church was never mentioned again.

Murals coming to Ottawa underpasses Staff

News - Murals will brighten up underpasses at Metcalfe Street and Riverside Drive at Bronson Avenue by the end of the summer. Mayor Jim Watson announced a program to add artwork to underpasses during his state of the city address in January. Last month, Watson confirmed that the Highway 417 underpass at Metcalfe and where Riverside Drive passes under Bronson Avenue will be the first murals to be completed. One of the walls of each underpass will feature depictions of the neighbourhoods where they are found, while the other wall will be used to pay tribute to Canada’s upcoming

150th birthday in 2017. “We are constantly looking for ways to spruce up the appearance of our community,” Watson said during his annual state of the city speech on Jan. 21. “And of course, we also want to put our best foot forward for people when arriving in the city.” The city already has other mural programs such as Paint It Up, which engages youth in designing murals for graffiti-prone spots as a way to deter the unwanted guerilla art. The city will work with transportation ministry staff, business improvement areas, councillors, youth groups and the arts community to tackle the mural project. For information, email mural@ ottawa.ca.

Oliver Zhang, the second grader in charge of the summer toy drive initiative stands among over flowing boxes in the front hall of his Barrhaven Public School.

Christmas in July Students help out their less fortunate peers Katrice Sutherland ksutherland@metroland.com

News- Eight-year-old Oliver Zhang stands proudly in the front hall of his school, holding buckets full of shovels he knows are going to enrich another child’s summer. Some underprivileged students have few toys and activities to entertain themselves over the three month break, which is why a class from Barrhaven Public School put together a summer toy drive. Grade two teacher Kendra Preston-Brooks says she challenged some of her students to give back to the community before they went off on their summer adventures. The response has been inspiring. “I suggested it, but Oliver ran with it and others caught on to it,” said the proud teacher. The students have watched a single empty box in the front foyer of the school grow into 10 boxes overflowing with toys.

The goal is to collect new and like-new sunny day toys such as skipping ropes, small shovels, pails and bouncy balls as well as rainy day toys such as decks of cards, dominos, crayons and markers. To date, the drive has exceeded all class’s expectations. When the project first started they were only hoping to collect enough toys for 8-10 donation bags but the young volunteers are now able to put together almost 30. The toys have been donated by friends and families of the students and community members. They plan to continue collecting until the end of May. Packages will be distributed to schools where kids will make good use of the toys throughout the Ottawa region prior to students leaving for the summer break. “I contacted colleagues in other schools I knew would be receptive, that could identify children who would benefit from it the most,” said Preston-Brooks.

The class has been helping to make announcements, sort and assemble the toys and decorate the boxes and bags. Through the school year, indigent students have teachers to offer guidance, time with friends, and an extra resource for food. Over the summer, some students may not be getting the same vacation time others are because home life is not as healthy an atmosphere. “People may not be looking forward to their summer. Sometimes school means being safer, having a pleasant place to be and tasks to keep preoccupied,” said PrestonBrooks. “This is meant to make a child’s life a little easier over the break.” Preston-Brooks says she wants her class to identify problems in their community and always be thinking of ways to help solve them. “Maybe we could do this next year,” said Oliver, hoping this toy drive will be the beginning of an annual fundraiser for underprivileged kids.

Hosted by the Community Activities Group, the Main Event will begin with a movie night in Springhurst Park on June 13 followed up by a garage sale and community party on June 14. “The Main Event is aptly named,” said Nick Masciantonio, chairman of the activities group board. “It’s the culmination of year-long activities in our community, activities that could not happen without our volunteers, the support of

our amazing business partners and the enthusiasm of our residents.” This year, the community will also take time to campaign for the revitalization of the neighborhood’s commercial core. The Sandy Hill Community Health Centre and the activities group will co-host the movie night, featuring Bend it Like Beckham on June 13 at 9 p.m. Rain date is scheduled for June 14 at 9 p.m. or dusk. There is no cost to attend. The garage sale will begin on Saturday, June 14 at 8 a.m. and takes place across the neighbourhood, from Rideau Gardens Drive to Greenfield Avenue and from Echo Drive

to the Rideau River. The centre of fun, however will be the Main Event community party on June 14, rain or shine from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The party will run alongside the Main Farmers’ Market on the lawn of St. Paul University. A barbecue, arts and craft sale and free wagon rides will run throughout the day. Family-fun activities will include a bouncy castle, balloon twister, and an obstacle course. All events are free. For more information about the event, visit ottawaeastcag. ca/events or contact the Community Activities Group at 613-230-0076.

Garlic Scapes are the flower stalk of the garlic. With mild garlic flavor and aroma, they are wonderful additions to stew, roasts, marinade, salads, sandwiches, sauces, pasta, stir-fry, pesto, roasted or even steamed.

The possibilities are endless! Silver Spring Farm, operated entirely by volunteers, is located 2 km. from Bayshore Shopping Centre, west of the Queensway Carleton Hospital. Your purchase will help the Ottawa-Carleton Association for NdjgejgX]VhZl^aa]Zaei]Z Persons with Developmental DiiVlV"8VgaZidc6hhdX^Vi^dc[dg Disabilities (OCAPDD) to continue its important work.
