News - Ottawa’s top doctor says a new casino would be bad for Ottawa’s health. But if city council continues to pursue one or more new gambling sites, it should ensure the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation pumps $2 million into community-based gambling treatment services in the city. That would be a steep increase from the $741,000 the Champlain Local Health Integration Network currently receives to fund programs in Ottawa – a number that hasn’t changed since 2007. On top of that, Dr. Isra Levy, the city’s medical officer of health, says the city should allocate 6.5 per cent of its annual take of casino revenue (around $350,000 of the city’s current take from the Rideau Carleton Raceway slots) towards gambling-prevention programs run by Ottawa Public Health. That figure is currently zero. No estimates on possible future casino revenue have been made public because it’s not known how large a new facility could be – or if there could be multiple gambling sites. The report released on Aug. 12 will provide ammunition for councillors who are opposed to adding more gambling options in the nation’s capital, a discussion that kicked off a year ago in Ottawa after the OLG asked municipal councils whether they would be willing to consider accepting new gaming facilities as part of its gambling modernization plan. The board of health will discuss the report at its Aug. 19 meeting and the information will also fuel a discussion at the finance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 about whether city council should ask the province and OLG to allow two gambling sites in Ottawa.

Alfredsson became an unrestricted free agent July 1 and was free to talk to teams in a limited capacity. He surprised many a few days later by signing a one-year $5.5 million contract with the Detroit Red Wings. Senators general manager Bryan Murray told media the team had offered Alfredsson $4.5 million for one-year, but Alfredssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent, J.P. Barry, was said to have been asking for $7 million. See ALFIE, page 3

News - Vanier aims to shine this weekend for its first-ever festival of nations. The event will start at 10 a.m. on Aug. 24 and will occupy most of the south side of Montreal Road from the Vanier Parkway to Dupuis Street. Activities run well into the evening, with musicians taking to the main stage located in the Eastview Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking lot all day. The inaugural festival is what organizer Dan Shipley said he hopes will become an annual event.. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want people to come and show off what they love about Vanier,â&#x20AC;? Shipley said. There will be food trucks, live music, antique vehicles and an artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; corner at the legion, St. Margretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church, the Moose Lodge parking

lot, Centre Pauline-Charron and Assumption School. A big portion of the festivities will include celebrating Eastviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th anniversary. The organization has found two centenarians who will come out to celebrate. Heritage costumes, vintage cars and city vehicles will fill the Moose Lodge parking lot for people to have the chance to take a step back in time. The festival has been made possible thanks to a number of partners, including the Vanier Community Association, which acquired one of four Better Neighbourhoods office grants. With a budget of only $10,000, Shipley said the group has probably managed to find more than $30,000 worth of help, space and equipment in donations. Complete festival information is available at festivalsvanier.com.

In response, the Ottawa Senators acquired winger Bobby Ryan from the Anaheim Ducks.

FAMILY

CONTRACT WENT “NOWHERE”

SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

Former Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson holds hands with his wife, Bibi Backman, before he speaks to media and supporters regarding his decision to accept a $5.5 million deal to play with the Detroit Red Wings. Alfredsson said he spoke at length with his family – the couple has four boys – before signing the one-year deal with Detroit. Seated next to his wife, Bibi Backman, and joined by their four children, the couple held hands before Alfredsson addressed the gathered crowd.

The decision was made together as a family, he said, and was not an easy one. He recalled when the family first

came to Ottawa 18 years ago, ready and excited – if a little nervous – to start a new life. “It’s amazing to me that our Ot-

Alfredsson gave his version of the events which eventually saw him accept a new role with the Red Wings. “When I did my last contract for four years ending in the (2012-13) season, I was asked to help the team manage the salary cap by adding on an extra year to my contract. I agreed,” he said. “Each side fully expected I would retire and not play the 2012-13 season.” “However, after the 2012 season, I told the Sens I wanted to play another season. I also asked to look at a possible extension for this upcoming season at a fair amount to balance out the two years for both of us. They agreed. “Sadly, the contract negotiations went nowhere, but I played out the season as I had promised and I believe this past season, in my view, was a very special one.” “In late June of this year, I decided I had it in me to play at least one more season. I told management I was willing to return, and I reminded them of our agreement from the year, but to my disappointment, negotiations quickly stalled, and then a number of days later, fellow teams contacted me, including Detroit.” Alfredsson said he was attracted to Detroit because of their style of play and the fact he had friends on that team already. “I knew they needed a right-handed shot,” he said. “I was also delighted by their enthusiasm and by their belief in how they saw me fitting into their plans. So that call opened my eyes to a possibility I had never thought of – to play another year, maybe even two, with another great team.” Alfredsson said he never felt his agent had worked out a deal with Ottawa. “I don’t have any bad feelings against anybody. I can’t say I feel disrespected. I understood it’s maybe hard for them to agree to my terms, but I had my reasons. “I respected Bryan (Murray) for everything he’s done for this team as a coach and GM,” said Alfredsson. “I understand it was hard for them to make it work under my terms.” “When we came to Ottawa all those years ago, we were excited and a little bit nervous. I don’t know how long this new adventure will last, and if and when we will return, but Ottawa will always be home in our hearts.” He said his dedication to Ottawa remains strong, as well as his commitment to the hospital and other organizations he has supported, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. Apart from hockey, his work to spread awareness of mental health illnesses will continue.

“Bibi and I first came to Ottawa in 1995 hoping that we would be able to make Ottawa our home. And over those years I was delighted…to make some very special friendships… and to lead your team for 13 seasons. It’s a journey my family and I will always cherish.” He thanked the community for showing never-ending support and genuine love towards his family through the ups and downs during his career as an Ottawa Senator. “Hockey was why we came here,” he said. “It’s not easy but I’m looking forward to this new chapter…Sometimes when you’ve been doing something for so long at the same place you need a change of scenery. This maybe will give me more energy.” Alfredsson began his NHL career with the Senators in the 1995-96 season, and has scored 426 goals and 682 assists for 1,108 points for a total of 1,178 regular-season games. He’s alos been powerful in the playoffs with 51 goals and 100 points in 121 games. In last year’s lockout-shortened season, Alfredsson had 10 goals and 26 points in 47 games. Ottawa drafted him in the sixth round in 1994 and he went on to capture the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie and appeared in six all-star games.

Ottawa Public Health has come out swinging against a new gambling facility in Ottawa, saying it will be harmful to residents’ health and it will create more demand for already-underfunded gambling cessation programs.

R0011982312_0321

While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa – at the Rideau Carleton Raceway – councillors indicated in a unanimous vote on July 17 that they would like to discuss the option of another casino site in addition to keeping at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway. The public health report says residents’ proximity to gaming facilities makes it more likely they will experience problems with gambling. The report cites multiple studies that indicate that the closer people live to a casino, the higher their risk of problem gambling. The public health report reveals that in 2010-11, the OLG spent nearly $300 million of its $6.7 billion in revenue on marketing and promoting gambling and $51.1 million on programs to address problem gambling. “In recent years, plans to increase availability of and access to gambling across Ontario as a means to generate revenue have been proposed without concerted increased efforts to mitigate gambling-related harm among Ontario residents,” the report reads. “There is an identified need to improve awareness raising, early identification of people experiencing problems with gambling and to provide these individuals with timely and adequate treatment.” The report was met with praise from a coalition of nine local community health and resource centres that have been vocal in opposing new gambling opportunities in Ottawa. However, a press release from the coalition states the mitigation measures proposed in the report wouldn’t be as effective as simply foregoing more gambling opportunities in Ottawa. “The group of nine community health and resource centres have been clear that the best mitigation measure to avoid problem gambling is not to increase access in the first place by opening up a new location

in the city of Ottawa,” states a press release from the coalition. “We are very pleased that they have reached the same conclusion as our nine centres regarding the inherent risks of a new casino, and we look forward to promoting this report with other city councillors and members of the community,” the coalition’s spokesman, Centretown Community Health Centre board president, Jim Morrison, stated. The Rideau Carleton Raceway’s 1,250 slot machines attract 1.8 million visitors annually, while three million people visit the Lac Lemy casino in Gatineau each year, the health report states. Both facilities are open 24 hours a day – something Levy doesn’t recommend for a new gambling site in Ottawa. In 2007-08, 10 per cent of Ottawa’s population reported using a casino in the past year. Public health estimates two per cent of the city’s adults over age 18 – 13,000 people – experience problematic effects from gambling, but only about 280 of them seek help. Problem gambling can range from risky financial activities and emotional or psychiatric issues to substance abuse and bankruptcy.

City gets infill extension from Ontario Municipal Board Board gives planners more time to define ‘character’

But after requesting an extension from the Aug. 8 deadline for that work set out by the Ontario Municipal Board, planners are breathing a sigh of relief that they will have until Dec. 31. “They said staff didn’t go far enough to prove character and patterns in established neighbourhoods,” Elizabeth Desmarais, the planner leading the project, told the planning committee in June. She and her fellow planners had five months to do the work and have been scrambling to document what factors contribute to creating “character” in different communities. The board said the city had to reconsider certain portions of the guidelines, such as whether the rules should only apply to new homes built in mature, urban neighbour-

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - City planners have been granted more time to shore up their infill guidelines intended to protect communities’ character. They were worried they wouldn’t have enough time to draft legally enforceable language describing how a proposed home would not be compatible with neighbouring dwellings.

hoods and not to changes made to existing dwellings. The board also said the city needs to clearly establish the link between the intent of the infill guidelines and the zoning bylaw written to implement those goals – hence, the project to define what constitutes neighbourhood “character.” “We’re dealing with new things here. We actually need to define the word ‘character,’” Desmarais said in June. Staff is looking at things like how far back from the street the homes are built, the positioning of walkways, the elevation of the ground a home is built on top of and the location and distance between driveways, as well as the type of parking facility – pad, carport, garage, etc. The rules would apply to new low-

rise homes built in older neighbourhoods in urban wards. Staff used that information to prepare and revise a draft infill zoning bylaw in response to the Ontario

“We’re dealing with new things here. We actually need to define the word ‘character,’” ELIZABETH DESMARAIS

Municipal Board’s order to change parts of the guidelines. The provincial body issued the order in March after the guidelines were appealed by developers and one individual.

More recently, the courts turned down the developer appellants’ request to appeal the board’s decision to the divisional court on the grounds that the move would be premature. The appellants will have to pay the city $10,000 in legal costs as a result of the dismissal of their request for leave to appeal. Those appellants, as well as community stakeholders, have been given a copy of the revised infill zoning bylaw and there is another meeting in the works to discuss it. The planning committee is expected to discuss and form a recommendation on the updated bylaw on Nov. 26.

Province boosts funding for youth, children with special needs Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – The Ontario government announced it will spend $5 million to reduce wait times and improve services for children with special needs. The money will see an additional 1,300 children youth served by rehabilitative services such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy at Ontario’s children’s treatment centres. Ontario funds 21 children’s treatment centres across the province, providing service to more than 64,000 kids a year. Minister of Children and Youth Services Teresa Piruzza made the announcement at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre on Aug. 13. John Fraser, marking his first public event as Ottawa South’s new MPP, was also on hand at the event to speak about the importance of the funding. “When you hear that a family was able to see their child who had complex needs strive and succeed, it doesn’t get any better than that,” said Fraser. “As government, we can help, and that’s what we’re here to do, but the broader community should know the OCTC is here and it’s a very special

Minister Teresa Piruzza visits with Jacob Doyle and MyKenna Griffiths, who both enjoy the programs and services at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre. MPP John Fraser says the new funding from the Ontario government will help those families currently on a waiting list. Ontario funds 21 children’s treatment centres across the province. place and it needs support.” The announcement coincided with

Fraser’s campaign to improve healthcare services across his riding.

Piruzza said she couldn’t pinpoint how much each centre would receive

in funding from the $5 million, but that the plan would roll out in the fall. The average wait time for rehabilitative services in Ontario for new families is 20 to 27 days. “We heard from families about what they need to support their children and youth with special needs, and we took action,” said Piruzza. “We remain committed to helping all children and youth in Ontario achieve their goals, Piruzza said the government is working towards reducing the wait times. “Today’s investment is part of our larger vision for these families and to help their children and youth get timely effective services,” she said. “Because the true cost, social economic and human cost of not taking action, of not continuing to move is just too great for our province and our future.” The Ontario government will continue to expand access to integrated rehabilitation services in full-day kindergarten classrooms by building on pilot programs. More young people with autism will also benefit from improved access to intensive behavioural intervention therapy, which helps decrease challenging behaviours, increase appropriate behaviours and promote development, according to the Ontario government website.

Give Ottawa its casino cut

O

ttawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top doctor says a new casino would be bad for our health. No argument there. A casino invites customers to gamble their hard-earned cash, promising a big payoff if they win. The problem is most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win. For many, dropping a couple hundred dollars at the craps tables and slot machines is simply the price of admission for an enjoyable night out on the town. For some, casinos feed an uncontrollable addiction, encouraging people to gamble away their rent money, retirement savings, or in extreme cases their home. But these addicts are a minority, the cost of doing business. And casinos are big business for both municipalities and the province, taking in hundreds of millions of dollars from residents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an inelastic source of income. Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief medical officer of health, who is obviously a realist, realizes the city will be unable to resist the lure of building a casino. As a realist, Levy is recommending the city pump $2 million into community-based gambling treatment services, a steep increase from the $741,000 the Champlain Local Health Integration Network

currently receives to fund programs in Ottawa, a number that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed since 2007. He is also recommending the municipality allocate 6.5 per cent of its annual take of casino revenue, which amounts to around $350,000 of what the city currently receives from the Rideau-Carleton Raceway slots, to gambling prevention programs run by Ottawa Public Health. Levyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations are a reasonable compromise. If the city turns down the opportunity to build a casino, people will simply head across the Ottawa River to gamble at Casino du Lac Lemy in Gatineau. Since Lac Lemy first opened in 1996, millions of local and tourist dollars have travelled out of Ottawa and Ontario to the Gatineau casino. Every last cent lost at the Gatineau casino ends up in Quebec coffers. Simply put, we want our cut. We can continue to do nothing and watch money leave the province and the city, or we can try and keep a slice of one very large pie. If there are going to be casinos, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical that the profits do some good for Ottawans and Ontarians.

Learning to fit in to the connected world

S

ome sights challenge your basic assumptions. Such as seeing an 80-year-old guy in a shopping centre with his laptop open playing solitaire. What are the basic assumptions about 80-year-old guys? First, when they are in the shopping centre theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reading the paper, or talking with other 80-year-old guys, or maybe in running shoes doing the mall walk. Second basic assumption: 80-year-old guys are not into computers. Computers are for young people. Old people are confused by computers and do crossword puzzles instead. It takes only a little calculating to figure out why these assumptions are wrong. Personal computers became popular in the mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s and by that time many people were already using computers at work. So do the math: if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 45 in 1980, working with a computer, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 78 now and computers have been with you much of your adult life. Of course you play solitaire on the computer now -- you probably did at work. As an aside, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny that you never see anyone in public playing solitaire with cards.

editor at 1 a.m. anymore, wanting him or her to settle an argument about the 1978 Calder Trophy winner. (It was Mike Bossy, since you ask, or Bobby Smith, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking the 1978-79 season.) Our commercial world is now encouraging the omnipresence of electronics. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all familiar with the laptop in the coffee shop -all too familiar, if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re searching for a seat. It used to be that only the trendier places enabled laptoppers to connect via Wi-Fi. Now Wi-Fi is in Tim Hortons, not to mention just about every roadside motel. More and more enterprises, from airports to shopping centres, are accommodating themselves to the computer generation -- which, as we have now seen, includes all generations. Church is next. There may remain a few generational differences. My guess is that many older people havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite figured out how Twitter is relevant to their lives and Facebook is a taste that not all of them have acquired -- although the appeal of daily photos of grandchildren may be luring some older people in. The initial impulse is to regret the fact that the wireless generation is now all of us, that the Wi-Fi has come to the shopping centre. We picture malls jammed with Sudoku-play-

ing senior laptoppers, added to the hoards of teenagers and lawyers staring into their phones. But it may not be so bad. For one thing, it may help get people out of their houses. The sad irony about computers is they help us get in touch with the world while we sit alone in front of the screen. So even if the senior is going to the mall to check his email or play solitaire, at least heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surrounded by other people. He may even bump into someone he knows and can grab a coffee, if all the seats arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already occupied by people with laptops.

Mothering in isolation

T

he death of 32-yearold Winnipeg mother Lisa Gibson just days after her daughter and infant son were found dead in their home is nothing short of tragic. At a memorial service, there were rallying cries for an examination into Manitoba’s mental health services. While it is not yet known whether Gibson killed her children, it is known that she suffered from a severe form of post-partum depression. Across social media, people began questioning what would compel a mother to kill her own offspring. Maybe, one friend pondered, mothers feel too far removed from parenting by instinct. Anyone who has children, or who is going to have a child, or who even thinks about having children is immediately offered a platter of unsolicited advice, she noted. Not to mention the Internet.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Between our obsession with celebrity parents and the mommy bloggers and newson-demand, it’s hard to avoid conflicting information on parenting wherever you go. But if mothers are more depressed than they have been in the past, I’d wager it has more to do with the isolation of motherhood than with anything else. Until the post-war era, most women stayed home with their children, which is isolating unto itself. But many lived in multi-generational homes, which meant a lot of women had their own

mothers, aunts and sisters to help them through the tough moments of parenting. And there are many. In many Aboriginal cultures, likewise, the community is very much expected to help raise children. It is not meant to be a solo venture. But in modern day, we have women – often women who have been active in their social and work lives – suddenly confined to the home when baby is born. This is even more pronounced with the current push for attachment parenting techniques, with the underlying message

that women should never be away from their children for a second. Eight years ago, when my first child was born, I remember waking him in the morning and thinking, “what am I going to do with you all day?” None of my friends had children and I had only recently moved back to Ottawa, in a neighbourhood where I didn’t really know anyone. At that time, my spouse was travelling for work, which meant 12 hours a day – and more during the night-waking phase – I was completely on my own. Sometimes I’d wander the neighbourhood or the mall, hoping to meet someone like me. I remember looking forward to his checkups at the doctor’s office, as an excuse to get us out of the house so I could speak to another adult. I eventually discovered playgroups, which were more for my socialization than for

my child’s. I’d show up thirty minutes early for one particularly popular group in Vanier at the time, determined to get a place for a couple of hours. I was fortunate to find a couple of women and men there that liked to talk politics and world affairs. I wasn’t fortunate enough to be able to carry on

something other than single syllables!” While midwives, maternity hospital staff and community centres these days are very good at pushing breastfeeding and attachment parenting, they’re not so good at reminding women that it’s not only okay, but recommended, that

Eight years ago, when my first child was born, I remember waking him in the morning and thinking, ‘what am I going to do with you all day?’ complete conversations, with our focus always on the kids. I’ve seen women, like me, walking around the neighbourhood we now live in, hoping to catch a glimpse of another parent and child, someone, anyone they can talk to. My friends in other cities, away from their families and friends, post on Facebook frequently, a call to the outside world to “please talk to me in

they maintain some connection with the adults in their lives. Before baby arrives, all those advising women, and women, themselves, would do well to propagate the importance of establishing social and professional networks that can be maintained – as a high priority – post-partum. Otherwise, I guarantee, mothering an infant may be one of the most isolating things you ever do.

Child slavery ignored by Ontarians: survey results • 87 per cent of Ontarians are willing to pay more for products guaranteed to be free of child labour. On average, they would pay 26 per cent more for such products. • 78 per cent are disturbed to see children working in the tourism industry when they’re on holiday.

• 84 per cent say they would be more likely to buy a vacation through a tour operator or hotel that donates a percentage of revenue to local child protection organizations.

• 76 per cent agree that both the Canadian government and individuals don’t do enough to advocate on behalf of children who are exploited.

A majority of Ontarians did not know it’s possible to buy fair trade clothing, wine, jewelry, soccer balls, flowers, seafood and produce like green peppers and bananas. “Ontarians haven’t yet grasped the shocking scale of child labour worldwide,” said Cheryl Hotchkiss, senior advocacy manager at World Vision Canada. “Their estimate of how many children toil in dirty, dangerous and degrading jobs was eight times lower than reality.” “It’s easy to turn a blind eye to something that’s not in your face, but this research shows Ontarians want options to protect children in other countries from exploitation, just like children in Canada should be protected.”

R0012_0822

News - A new poll reveals that Ontarians feel conflicted about child labour and how they may be fueling the tragedy. Commissioned by World Vision a few weeks after the Bangladesh factory disaster, the Ipsos Reid survey found that 73 per cent of Ontarians think it’s easy to turn a blind eye to child labour in developing countries. The majority also misjudged the scale of child slavery worldwide. On average, Ontarians estimated that 13.3 million children are doing hazardous work. The correct answer, according to the International Labour Organization, is more than 115 million children are doing work that is damaging their bodies, minds and well-being. Many have dropped out of school and many are not able to escape their situation.

Plane Pull Challenge set to take off Sept. 15 Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

Community – Ottawa will pull together for the community next month. The 8th annual Plane Pull Challenge will take place on Sept. 14 at the Ottawa Airport. Airport spokeswoman Krista Kealey said the event has grown from featuring 12 teams to 34. “It was a small event the first year we held it, but it’s since continued to grow,” she said. All of the proceeds from the event will be split equally between Project Clear Skies and the Sens Foundation. Last year’s event raised approximately $80,000 for both charities, and Kealey said they are hoping to achieve a little more than that this year. While they are still waiting on confirmation on the type of aircraft teams will be pulling, Kealey said it will be a challenge all round. Kealey said they are keeping their fingers crossed for a large jet, courtesy of Air Canada. A team consists anywhere from 15 to 20 people who compete against

The event raised about $80,000 for the Sens Foundation and Project Clear Skies. other teams and try to beat their times, she added. The fastest time a team has ever achieved in pulling an airplane is five seconds.

The task is actually easier than it looks, she said. “Once you get a great momentum going, you’ll be surprised how easy

it is,” she said. The one-of-a-kind event is a unique one, and has always attracted a vast number of spectators, said Ke-

aley. “It’s a really different type of event,” she said. “It’s a unique experience for anyone who participates.” After all, Kealey added, it’s not often one will have a chance to pull an airplane. The family-friendly event will feature something for everyone, including live entertainment and children’s activities. Once the teams arrive on site for the fundraiser, they are led through a warm-up activity to get their adrenaline pumping. Team members will line up adjacent to the pull rope, which is tied to the aircraft. When instructed by the referee, participants will create tension on the rope and prepare to pull. The team will start pulling at the sound of the horn and the timer will start. Participants will haul the aircraft 12 feet. Medals will be given to the three fastest teams, and the coveted Plane Pull Cup will be awarded to the winning team. Sponsorships and participants are still welcome to join the event or create a team. For more information, please visit www.ottawa-airport.ca/plane-pull.

Feedback wanted on legal grow-op sites City wants comments on medical marijuana production sites Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News – New federal rules regarding the production of medical marijuana has prompted the city to seek feedback on potential grow sites. Health Canada’s most recent Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) seeks to treat medical grow facilities as a functioning, licensed commercial business, given that it plans to stop producing the product by April 1 of next year.

That means small-scale home-growing and large-scale government facilities are out, and large-scale private facilities are in. And, because new businesses are subject to the municipal zoning regulations, the City of Ottawa wants to ensure the implementation of the federal policy mitigates community concerns. Already, the city has released a city-wide zoning bylaw amendment proposal for the public to weight in on, with Sept. 6 being the comment cutoff date.

Those comments will be included in a draft report, which the public can then comment on until Sept. 30, at which time it will be finalized in advance of committee and council consideration. The city’s proposed amendment will seek to clarify or provide new definitions under its zoning bylaw for medical marijuana production facilities, clarify the type of use under which such a facility will be permitted, and identify appropriate zones for such facilities.

Certainly, the locations of such facilities could draw concern from neighbouring residents, even though the production would have to incur indoors. Media reports from late July suggested a potential commercial grower is already waiting for his chance to open a facility. Those stories quoted Sam Mellace, manager of New Age Medical Solutions, as saying he had purchased land in the rural west end of Ottawa for just such a facility - one of

many he would like to create across Canada. Mellace, a medical marijuana advocate who garnered headlines in 2010 for lighting a joint in the House of Commons, had not spoken with city planners at the time of his comments. Comments in regards to the issue can be sent to the city’s Planning and Growth Management branch by emailing Trevor.Illingworth@ottawa. ca.

Montgomery Legion ready to reopen its doors Heavy ice and snow caused major damage to the building this year Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News- The Montgomery Legion is getting ready to open its doors months after being shuttered due to ice and snow damage. The trouble began in January when heavy ice and snow caused the roof to leak, creating thousands of dollars in damage to the downtown building. The legion was forced to close its top two floors - the hall and the members lounge - for more than eight months while repairs were made to the roof and renovations were conducted. Legion president Lionel Rowe said the closure of the two rooms has left the organization, and those in need of a cheap downtown hall out in the cold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been one hell of a time getting it all put back together,â&#x20AC;? Rowe

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been one hell of a time getting it all put back together.â&#x20AC;? LIONEL ROWE

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the main thing is we are close to being done and we want to get this back up and running for the community.â&#x20AC;? The organization aims to open the top two floors by Sept. 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have lost a lot of money and had to help find other accommodations for people who had already rented the space,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a regular upset, but our membership and other regulars have been very supportive.â&#x20AC;? According to Rowe, the room rental costs are some of the cheapest available in downtown Ottawa. Charitable organizations are given the space for free. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have turned down a lot of

people over the year and now we want to let people know we will be back come September,â&#x20AC;? Rowe said. The building is part an 1850-era house that included a 1950 addition. Rowe said once the construction work began, workers found a number of other concerns associated with an old building, including asbestos in the walls and ceiling. Adding to the frustration was the flooding damaged to the recently renovated washrooms and hallway flooring on the top floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really unfortunate thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all gone,â&#x20AC;? Rowe said. Rowe did say some positives have come out of all the mess, including the legion deciding to use this opportunity to update the hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main kitchen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The timing was perfect and we really had to get it done,â&#x20AC;? he said. The legion will receive donated second-hand industrial kitchen equipment from the Union Mission. They will also update the hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound system and televisions - another thing Rowe said they decided to do because it made sense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is all open so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to do now,â&#x20AC;? he said. The damage caused by the ice and flooding will be covered by insurance, with the upgrades to the kitchen and hall covered by the legion. Once the top two floors are open again, Rowe said the organization, which has kept the basement room open to the public, will need to see just how much damage, asbestos and other hidden concerns lie below. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That we will need to raise money for, but that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be right away,â&#x20AC;? Rowe said. For up-to-date information about the legion, please visit the legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website montgomerylegion. ca.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, August 22, 2013

New ASH committee planning widespread survey to define neighbourhood’s future Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A new initiative of the Sandy Hill community association is looking to enlist a wider swath of residents to define the future needs of the neighbourhood. Action Sandy Hill’s new Vision Sandy Hill initiative has spawned an idea to conduct a community-wide survey or needs assessment. Suneeta Millington, a recently elected member of Action Sandy Hill’s board, launched the initiative along with 14 people who attended an Aug. 14 meeting. Millington said she was inspired by a Vital Signs survey that took place in her hometown neighbourhood of Bowness in Calgary, which she left last year to move to Ottawa. Vital Signs is a standardized “community checkup” conducted by community foundations across Canada. To her, the survey initiative is twofold: engage Sandy Hill’s diverse community and gather reliable information to shape a collective vision for the community’s future. While the discussion on Aug. 14 initially revolved around how to gather information about the population and characteristics of Sandy Hill, participants eventually moved in the direction of a needs assessment for the neighbourhood. “It’s fine to point to facts, but then let’s ask what the needs are arising from that,” said Sharon O’Sullivan. “It’s about people really shaping their community and giving the advice to the community association,” said Leeanne Moussa, who is leading the effort to convert the Carriage House into a space for the Bettye Hyde daycare and other services. The group has been in touch with the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study team and plans to further investigate what kinds of demographic information already exists. One way O’Sullivan thanks about it is in terms of the reasons she feels the need to use her car. She and others agreed that surveying

people about things like what resources/services they enjoy in the neighbourhood and how often they use them, as well as what types of businesses and services they would like to see added. One recurring point that was made was an interest in investigating whether there is a desire for a volunteer group in Sandy Hill to offer more recreational programming in partnership with the city – something that’s done in other neighbourhoods, including nearby Old Ottawa East’s Community Activities Group. Engaging people in a survey might help ignite community activism, or at least provide an opportunity to collect and distribute information about what’s already available in the community. But some people in attendance at the meeting cautioned that the project must be approached in an inclusive way from the start. Christine Aubry, a board member with the Sandy Hill Community Health Centre, wondered if the term “permanent residents” used in an email Millington sent to interested participants could be considered exclusionary. “Like it or not, students are a big part of our community,” she said. Millington said the terminology will have to be finessed as the initiative moves forward because her email was meant to be inclusive. “Just because you’re a tenant, doesn’t mean you are not a permenant resident,” she said. “It was meant to capture people’s connection to the community and … whether someone feels vested in the community.” Outreach with students and tenants of multiresidential buildings will be the trickiest part of the survey, but a critical part, Millington said. The format of the survey, what information will be collected and how the group will promote and engage people in the project are yet to be determined. Timelines for the initiative weren’t set out at the first meeting. Anyone wishing to connect with the Vision Sandy Hill survey project can connect Millington via Action Sandy Hill on the web at www. ash-acs.ca and by email at info@ash-acs.ca.

News - A Barrhaven teen decided to take a trek on the Rideau Trail to help provide school children in Kenya with better access to clean drinking water. Paul Newcombe, 16, a student at St. Joseph Catholic High School, picked out the project after returning from building a house in Mexico this winter. He then enlisted the aid of friends Colin and Peter Snider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always liked hiking the Rideau Trail near our house, so when he realized it went all the way to Kingston, he decided it would make a good adventure,â&#x20AC;? said Carolyn Newcombe, Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother. The trail is 325 kilometres long and is very rough going at times, said Peter Snider, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Perth native and a student at Nipissing University. Paul wanted to combine his love of the outdoors and community involvement. It took the trio a few tries to ďŹ nd a charity that worked for them. They settled on a WaterCan project called Long Walk for Water. It helps provide 1,000 school children at Kabete Vetlabd Primary School in Nairobi, Kenya, with better access to clean water. According to WaterCan the government funded school is in a slum area on the periphery of the city. There are often 60 students in each class and a lack of proper washrooms and adequate sanitation. The group raised funds to connect the school to a sufďŹ cient supply of city water, install cisterns to store water in preparation for when city shuts off supply in the hot summers and connection to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewer system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was rough going,â&#x20AC;? Paul said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would start at 5:30 a.m. and walk until it got dark. Then we would rest and light our campďŹ re,â&#x20AC;? he said. They would wait until dark to make camp, sometimes travelling for 10 to 12 hours per day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were some spots where the trail was overgrown and we had to climb over logs and other vegetation,â&#x20AC;? Paul said. Each of the trio carried a 13-kilogram pack with supplies like food, tents and clothing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if we could do it again we would give ourselves more than nine days,â&#x20AC;? Peter

Scott Miller, the corporate services director of the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre, thanks the province for funding as part of the Ontario Youth Employment Fund. Ottawa West-Nepean Bob Chiarelli announced the funding at the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre on Aug. 12.

Youth employment programs get provincial cash infusion jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Ottawa-West Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli announced the first of a series of provincial programs aimed at increasing employment opportunities for young people at the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre during an announcement at Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre on Aug. 2. The Ontario Youth Employment Fund, which aims to connect young people with employers who will provide job placements of four to six months, will have a budget of $195 million over two years. Chiarelli said each of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11 employment centres will get a slice of the funding pie. Scott Miller, corporate services director for the Pinecrest-Queensway centre, said funding announcements are always good news for the not-for-profit, but funding for youth is special. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement from the Ontario government will help increase our ability to help the youth of our communities makes it even more special,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. Eligible youth would have

access to $7,800 in funding. The first $1,000 is to be used by the young person for things like work supplies and transportation, while the balance would be used by the employer to subsidize their wages. Chiarelli said the employment fund would roll out this fall. It will be followed with announcements for funding of other programs to focus on mentorship, innovation and skills connection for young people, he added. According to the province, the unemployment rate for youth in Ontario is double that of workers aged 25 to 64 and

last year more than 35 per cent of Employment Ontario clients were youth. Mohamed Sofa, a community developer for the centre, said everyday heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeing young people who are anxious to get experience, unable to find jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this will help to kickstart youth employment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because now some of the biggest barriers lack of onthe-job training and access to mentorship. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about jobs, but the future of young people.â&#x20AC;?

Tearing up the track Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Sports - Capital City Speedway has been a racing mecca since 1961. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still plenty of speed and noise at the track just west of Stittsville four nights a week. Wednesdays are for stock car racing on the three-eighths of a mile oval â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about 600 metres. Cars race in five classes, including a category called 4 For Fun that features cars that are much like vehicles youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see on the street minus exterior trim and the interior fittings other than the drivers seat. At the top end, the Late Modelclass cars can rip around the track in about 18 seconds. Thursday nights are for fans of drifting: cars that skid and slide around the turns. Fridays and Saturdays leave the adjacent oval behind as the Capital City Dragway times cars as they run a straight drag as street-legal cars and narrow dragsters tear up the track. The season wraps up this year on Sept. 7 with Summer Slam 2013, which culminates with a demolition derby. For information, visit capital cityspeedway.ca.

The Vintage Modified-class of cars donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit the track every week, but when they do, they entertain the crowd, especially when they round a corner with their inside wheels in the air.

Celebrate the new school year Makle the first day of school extra special Lifestyle - Why not organize a back to school party this year? Turning the first day of school into a festive occasion is a great way to start off the new school year on the right foot. You probably already know that eating breakfast is vital for energy and for increasing one’s capacity to learn. Make your back-to-school breakfast a colourful affair. Set the table with fresh flowers and new placemats, and concoct a healthy breakfast that’s a bit out of the ordinary. If your children aren’t hungry, a smoothie and a small homemade fat-free muffin are easy to manage, even for small stomachs that are feeling queasy with stress. Before leaving home, be sure to take the traditional photograph at the front door. The idea may seem old-fashioned to you, but these annual photos will become great memories for the entire family. Create an album just for these back-to-school photos and in a few years time you’ll all have fun looking through it. When your children get home after their first day back at school, give them a surprise, a little reward to make them feel better after what can often be a stressful

Make the first day back to school a special one – serve a special breakfast and a fun supper. It might just become an annual family tradition. day. You don’t need to spend a fortune to put smiles on their faces – serving their favourite meal or taking everybody out to a restaurant is a great way to finish off the day.

Above all, this is an occasion to spend time together as a family, a moment to support each other in making the peaceful transition from the quiet of the summer to the regular school year routine.

How to help children who have been rejected Lifestyle - Children who are being rejected by their peers are going through a terrible ordeal. Isolated, insulted and ostracized, they often suffer in silence, and the consequences can be dramatic. It is never easy for parents to help a child who is being rejected, but it is possible. Being different in some way is sometimes the cause behind this rejection. At other times, there doesn’t appear to be any logical explanation. Shyness, a nervous tic, speech difficulties, obesity, or even having braces can be enough to set in motion the victimization process. Sometimes, all it takes is for children to ignore being made fun of for the rejection to start. And yet, some children who stutter or who are obese will never experience rejection. Children are best prepared by receiving help in developing a certain amount of independence and social skills, which allow them to cope with their differences. Parents who help their children from a young age to develop social skills are preparing them to be better able to defend themselves without resorting to violence (but rather through discussion or humour, for example). This also helps them to build their self-confidence. Parents should listen to how their children have suffered and, above all, take them seriously. The next step is to tell their teachers; school staff may be able to correct the situation through a class discussion where everyone can express themselves without fear of being judged. It is vital to encourage rejected children to talk about their experience in order for them to escape their isolation.

Shopping for this year’s school supplies can be a fun time.

Lifestyle - And they’re off: the race to buy school supplies has begun. That’s right, the time has come to head out to the stores with your list at the ready in search of school supplies, clothing, backpacks, and lunch boxes. After all, you want your children to have everything they need for the school year and for their teacher’s class list. Here are a few tips to help you stay calm during all the tumult. First of all, carefully examine the list of supplies requested by the school. These detailed lists can be big orders to fill, so start early, take your time and do it right. Some stores organize their school supply section based on the lists supplied by the schools, while others offer personalized help in finding items on the list. To save yourself some money, you could check the flyers of the various stores before leaving home. You could also buy some items, such as pencils, pads of paper and exercise books, in larger quantities. That way you’ll have everything at hand if your children run out during the school year – you won’t have to go shopping yet again and pay the full price. Keep in mind that selecting products of a lesser quality could cause you a few headaches if they break or wear out too quickly. What you should be looking for is the best quality-price ratio. Lastly, include your children in this shopping trip if they express the desire to accompany you, but be sure to set certain limits before you leave home. Let them know if there is a budget for extras, and if not, remind them that they are meant to be helpers rather than shoppers.

University of Ottawa suspends journalism program Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The University of Ottawa has suspended their journalism program following a report to the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senate that called it poorly conceived. For more than a decade, an articulation agreement has allowed students to complete two years of studies at Ottawa U and two years at either Algonquin College or La CitĂŠ collĂŠgiale. Graduating students received both a bachelor of arts degree and a diploma of journalism. Evan Potter, a professor in the University of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s communications department, said the first articulation agreement â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the one with La CitĂŠ â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was developed in 1998. The intention was to foster one of the only francophone journalism degrees in eastern Ontario. The agreement with

Algonquin was forged in 2002. The provincial Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities evaluated the program in 2010. That evaluation and its recommendations are part of the reason for the suspension of the program.

We expect that, moving forward, what is currently a good program will be made an even better program. PHIL GAUDREAU, ALGONQUIN COOLEGE SPOKESPERSON

Roughly 25 students were admitted to the Algonquin stream of the course each year, yet those students would start out by getting lost in a sea of approximately 1,200 communications students at Ottawa U, Pot-

ter said. The report sent to the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senate also went on to say that very few of the faculty of arts staff seem to understand how students evolve through the programs, or what is taught in the program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; particularly at the partner institutions. In the evaluation, the ministry recommended the addition of some journalism classes during the two years at Ottawa U to allow the students to get to know each other and provide some cohesion. Daniel Nugent-Bowman, now a sports writer at the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, said when he took the program straight out of high school, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what he expected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a lot of communications, history and politics, but no journalism component,â&#x20AC;? he said of the two years at Ottawa U. â&#x20AC;&#x153; When I met with staff there was very little knowledge of the transfer

process and how it worked.â&#x20AC;? Left to his own devices, NugentBowman volunteered at Ottawa Uâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newspaper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Fulcrum â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to get the writing experience he wanted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very frustrating and you were left on your own,â&#x20AC;? he said. On the other hand, once he made it to the Algonquin College portion of the program, he said everything came together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have very few complaints about the Algonquin College portion of the program,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made me the journalist I am today. But the university program needs an overhaul. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a lot out of it.â&#x20AC;? Joe Banks, the Algonquin College journalism co-ordinator, said students come to the college anxious to get their hands dirty. Banks said he hopes to see the program fixed instead of scrapped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From my perspective the program has been a success because the

students who come to us were experienced learners and hungry to actually practise journalism,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding the graduation and retention rate of those students has been close to 100 per cent. Phil Gaudreau, a spokesperson for Algonquin College said the decision by the university has no bearing on the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-year journalism diploma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is our understanding that Algonquin graduates who are currently attending the honours journalism program at the University of Ottawa will be able to complete their studies,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding the college is supportive of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s review process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect that, moving forward, what is currently a good program will be made an even better program,â&#x20AC;? Gaudreau said.

One summer offered hope during Depression years MARY COOK Memories

I

t seemed to me we lived in a constant state of anxiousness. Mother and Father so often wore worried looks that sent a pall over the entire household. The egg money in the blue sugar bowl never seemed to be enough to cover our needs.

Frivolity, like a few slices of bologna from Briscoe’s General Store or a package of Cracker Jacks after our Saturday peddling of Mother’s wares in Renfrew was out of the question. And then one summer everything changed.

wherever you make memories to treasure.

It was almost like someone had lifted a roller blind in a darkened room, letting in sunshine. It didn’t happen suddenly, but it came as the summer wore on. The season started out like any other. Father planted the fields, Mother raised hens from chickens, packets of seeds arrived in the mail and were planted. But that year, as spring rolled into summer, I knew in my heart, that year things were going to be different. For one thing, there were no frosty days or nights to kill what had been planted. But one season blended into the other, as if by some magic plan there was nothing to halt the natural growth in the fields and in the ample garden. That year there were no heavy rains to flood the seedlings or leave big pools of water in the low lying fields. The rain came as often as was needed. Soft wonderful rain and often, as if led by some outside hand, it fell during the warm nights so that Father was able to spend the days tending to the crops. The rain barrels, empty at night sitting at the corners of the back of the old log house, would be filled in the mornings from the runoff of the eaves as we slept in our beds. It was wonderful soft rain water which Mother put to good use. That year there was no drought. Gone were the cracks in the soil at our back stoop that in other years we saw after weeks of a dry spell: parched ground, crumbling under

our bare feet, and burning the soles. That year, when everything seemed to change, the ground was moist to the touch. And I would see Father walk the back fields. After the morning chores and often after supper, he would go over to the West Hill, cross the Bonnechere and look – just look – and he would come back to the house and I could see a spring in his step that in other years

was so often missing. Sometimes I would go with him. Father was not one to talk idly, so we would walk in silence. And I would watch him stop at the alfalfa field and pull at a few stacks, rubbing them between the palms of his hands. The buckwheat field, the last to be planted, was already starting to turn to a golden brown. To me it looked like a large velvet carpet. See GARDEN, page 35

Roasted vegetables with pasta a great alternative LIQUIDATION SALE RIDEAU AUCTIONS INC.

Lifestyle - This is a dry rather than saucy pasta dish, but delish! Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried roasting cauliflower, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become a favourite method. Also try roasting it on the barbecue in a grill basket. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 25 minutes. Serves four. INGREDIENTS

â&#x20AC;˘ 1.5 l (6 cups) small cauliflower florets (about half a large head) â&#x20AC;˘ 45 ml (3 tbsp) olive oil â&#x20AC;˘ 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each crushed red pepper flakes and dried oregano â&#x20AC;˘ Salt and pepper â&#x20AC;˘ 125 ml (1/2 cup) diced smoked ham â&#x20AC;˘ 24 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved â&#x20AC;˘ 75 ml (1/3 cup) panko bread crumbs â&#x20AC;˘ 1 clove garlic, minced â&#x20AC;˘ 250 g (8 oz) medium-size pasta, such as rigatoni â&#x20AC;˘ 125 ml (1/2 cup) grated asiago cheese

â&#x20AC;˘ 25 ml (2 tbsp) chopped parsley PREPARATION

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower with olive oil. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes, oregano and pinch each salt and pepper. Toss well and spread on the baking sheet. Bake in 200 C (400 F) oven for 15 minutes, stirring partway through. Remove from the oven. Scatter ham, tomatoes, panko crumbs and garlic over the cauliflower and stir.

Place the baking sheet back in the oven and roast until cauliflower is tender and tomatoes are softened, 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, add pasta to boiling water and cook until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain pasta and place in large warmed bowl, reserving some of the pasta water. Add the cauliflower mixture and the cheese and toss well. Add just enough pasta water to moisten. Divide among warmed pasta bowls then sprinkle with parsley. Add more cheese, if desired.

Civic Campus seeks hospital parking expansion steph.willems@metroland.com

News - The Ottawa Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Civic campus is seeking to boost its parking supply in advance of the expansion of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. A zoning bylaw amendment submitted to the city proposes an upward expansion of the current surface lot -- P2 -- on Ruskin Street. The fourstorey parking garage would hold 736 vehicles, substantially more than the current lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total of 270. The hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s P2 lot is located on the northern edge of the campus, bordered by Ruskin St., Macfarlane Avenue, Hutchison Avenue, and Reid Avenue. Used by patients and visitors only, it has a treed buffer zone running along Hutchison designed to mask the parking lot and hospital buildings for the low-rise residential communities to the north. Residents of the surrounding community frequently use that area, which features a walking path, and refer to it as Ruskin Park. The traffic and transportation

overview prepared for the amendment by CastleGlenn Consultants shows the garage entrance on Macfarlane, which would be turned into a cul-de-sac at the north end to prevent cut-though vehicle traffic. A pedestrian crosswalk across Ruskin would connect the garage to the campus. The study stated other locations were evaluated â&#x20AC;&#x153;from a traffic operations perspective, access separation and cost effectiveness,â&#x20AC;? and ultimately the P2 lot was chosen as the most desirable. On July 9, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance and economic development committee passed a report recommending council approve a 16-year lease extension on the land in question. Council subsequently approved the lease extension. The lease is dependent on the building of the parking structure, which requires a rezoning in order to see the light of day. The Civic Hospital Neighbourhood Association, however, believes the city is acting too fast, stating on their website, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the rush?â&#x20AC;? The association references the typical Ot-

tawa planning process and the public consultations that come with it. While Geoffrey Hall, planning assistant to Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs states that there is no requirement for a community meeting on this rezoning file, there has been an informal meeting between the hospital and the community on June 20 of this year and a subsequent meeting between the group and the councillor that discussed the planning process. When contacted by the Ottawa West News, association president Amanda Farris elected to withhold comment until after a meeting with hospital representatives scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 22, after this paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline A petition is still being circulated through the community objecting to the garage, and the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance is that it not be built; instead, they would like to see the original lease on the surface lot play out until its 2025 expiry date. That lease began in 1995. The community sees the structure as a roadblock to the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential

future use as a community park, the possibility of which is mentioned in the original lease agreement. The proposed garage building would fall within the current surface lot footprint, meaning the current treed corridor along Hutchison would remain in place. Provincial funding totaling $175 million for the Heart Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansion was announced in 2011, with an aging population and rising instances of heart disease as the rationale. Capital funds from the institute make up the rest of the total project cost. Construction on the expansion is expected to begin in 2014. The rezoning application was received by the city on July 29, meaning a 120 day comment period is to follow. No planning committee date has yet been set, though Hall said it will likely be in November. In the interim period, comments regarding the parking garage project can be sent to file lead Douglas James at 613-580-2424, ext. 13865. Emails can be sent from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development application page.

Ravens face challenge of fielding brand new team Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grad ready to take to the hometown field Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rookie initiation will be a little different for Carleton Ravens football players this year. The newbies usually have to run to ďŹ ll the water bottles for veteran players, and then diligently wait season after season for a starting position to be up for grabs. As Carleton University started football training camp on Aug. 15, every last player was a Ravens rookie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot is expected from all of us, we all came here with a blank slate,â&#x20AC;? said Matt Lapointe, an OrlĂŠans player who has already graduated from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University, where he played football. Carleton will ďŹ eld a football team this year for the ďŹ rst time since the late 1990s. Almost all of the new Ravens football players are fresh out of high school; young players ready for their ďŹ rst taste of university football. Besides Lapointe, Ottawa players include Nathaniel Hamlin and Tunde Adeleke, both from Gloucester South and St. Francis Xavier graduates, Tyler Young, a Sacred Heart graduate from Stitsville, Nick Gorgichuk, a St. Mark graduate from Manotick and Matt Engel, a Nepean graduate from Sir Robert Borden and Yitzhak

Gorgichuk, a quarterback, origi-

nally committed to play at Acadia University, but decided to switch and stay closer to home, joining the Carleton program. He was one of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early recruits, and a star player in the junior football ranks.

Ravens lineup. Gorgichuk will have competition in experienced quarterback Jesse Mills, who played with coach Sumarah at St. Mary University before coming to Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting some battles,â&#x20AC;? Sumarah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to come out and compete on (gameday) Saturdays, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to compete during the week as well.â&#x20AC;? Because every player is new to the program, Sumarah said he expects it to become a tight-knit program over the years. While many university teams carry up to 100 players, this year heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cap the total at 70 to 75 on the ďŹ nal roster, to be determined after an exhibition game this weekend. That will allow the team to recruit about 20 new players next year, accounting for some inevitable turnover, to build the team as the years go on. It was a different type of training camp last week at Carleton University, as few of the players knew each other, while other universities have a crew of veteran players welcoming the rookies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted them to stay as a group on campus,â&#x20AC;? Sumarah said, of the players at camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of these guys donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who one another are.â&#x20AC;? He estimated this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training camp was the initiation to university

football for 90 per cent of his team. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be some perks being a hometown Ottawa player. Lapointe is returning to live with his parents in OrlĂŠans, where it will be a short drive for his family and friends to come out and watch his home games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Planning weekend trips was tough before,â&#x20AC;? Lapointe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right in the backyard.â&#x20AC;? High school graduates Hamlin, Adeleke, Engel and Gorgichuk will all stay living at home while they play for Ravens. They all expect a strong contingent of family and friends to come out to Carletonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keith Harris Stadium to cheer them on during their ďŹ rst home game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be good, seeing friends and family in the stands, some familiar faces,â&#x20AC;? said Young, who will live on campus. As the start of the regular season looms, Sumarah didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set a goal based on wins and losses, instead focusing on the work ethic on the ďŹ eld. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see us go out and compete on every play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; be a physical team,â&#x20AC;? the head coach said. The Ravens will play their ďŹ rst home game on Sept. 7 at 1 p.m. against Waterloo at Keith Harris Stadium on the Carleton University Campus.

Business community asked to lace up for KidSport Ottawa Corporate Challenge to help children get involved in organized sports Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - KidSport Ottawa is asking the corporate world to lace up its running shoes to raise funds for a good cause. The inaugural Ottawa Corporate Challenge invites businesses to put together teams of eight to compete in various sports and team-building exercises. Proceeds from the event will go towards KidSport, which provides funding to underprivileged children in the city to play organized sports. “It’s a great fundraiser and benefits our children and youth in Ottawa,” said Kyle Dawson, a volunteer with KidSport who works for the city’s parks and recreation department. “It gives them a day to miss work and get out into some fresh air and try some new sports they wouldn’t get to try otherwise.” Teams will take part in eight different sporting and non-athletic contests. The Ottawa Corporate Challenge takes place on Friday, Sept. 13, from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kanata Recreation Complex. GIVING BACK

KidSport Ottawa, a charity that provides underprivileged children grants to play organized sports, is hosting the inaugural Ottawa Corporate Challenge. Businesses are invited to lace up their running shoes and put together teams of eight to compete in various activities on Sept. 13 in Kanata. of 24 teams enter and fundraise between $18,000 and $20,000, which will help around 100 children. KidSport provides grants of up to $450

to pay for registration and equipment fees associated with team sports. Every year, KidSport helps around 500 children and youth become ac-

tive, whether it be playing basketball, hockey, soccer or another organized sport. Dawson has been active in sport his entire life, with hockey,

lacrosse, skiing and snowboarding topping his list. His love of being active spurred him to volunteer with KidSport to help foster the same affection for sport in others. He’s been active with the charity for more than two years. “It’s a way of giving back to my community,” he said. The Ottawa Corporate Challenge will feature a mix of mainstream and alternative sports, as well as fun team-building activities, such as beach volleyball, mini-soccer, ultimate Frisbee and goalball – a sport designed for the visually impaired. Goalball uses a soft, mid-size ball with a bell in it; teammates lie on the ground and have to navigate the ball into the opposite net. “That’s the one I want to really see being done,” said Dawson, adding the day is a way for colleagues to get to know one another in a fun setting. “It really gets the business community involved in sports and team building,” he said. “It’s getting them active within their community.” There is a registration fee of $250, and teams are asked to fundraise a minimum of $800. There will be a lunch, awards presentation and a wrap up ceremony. Every participant also receives a gift package and water. For more information, visit ottawacorporatechallenge.ca.

Art, jewellery coming to Manotick garden Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Arts - What better place to evoke the spirits of impressionists past than in a beautiful rural garden on the shores of the Rideau River? This is the idea behind Jewellery and Fine Art in the Garden, an outdoor art show at the Manotick home of Klaus and Judy Beltzner showcasing the work of Barrhaven artist Fortunée Shugar. From 10 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7 guests can tour Shugar’s large collection of original paintings and a new series of fused glass jewellery at 1370 River Road. The Beltzners’ large backyard garden impressed Shugar when she visited last year, and the friends began discussing the possibility of an outdoor show on the grounds. This summer, it became a reality. “I love going to outdoor shows,” Shugar said. “There’s nature, you hear the birds. It’s just so pleasant.” A large part of Shugar’s paintings are done in the impressionist style, after she spent almost two months walking the paths of famous impressionists like Van Gogh and Monet in 2011. “I wanted to get to know them,” she said. “I wanted to stand where they stood, see the light that they saw. And I think I achieved that.”

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Fortunée Shugar’s painting Moments Later is just one that will be for sale on the grounds of a Manotick home on Sept. 7. What’s left of a five-month painting spree after her trip to Europe will be for sale at the show. But Shugar, a lifelong student of all types of arts – she has certifications in fine art, dress making, haute couture and animation – doesn’t hold herself to any one genre. Since she returned to the University of Ottawa to complete her

fine arts degree several years ago, Shugar has been exploring abstract styles. Large, colourful pieces made with painted paper and other mixed media adorn her walls. She started her career doing pencil drawings of the human body and other finite objects, so abstract was a leap for her.

But Shugar said she has learned to interact differently with her abstract work. “It’s not an intellectual approach so much as an emotional response,” she said. “I’ve gained a real understanding and love of connecting with the paint.” A large painting on the mantel in her dining room, called Mother, is very close to her heart, she said, because she wasn’t actively trying to put her impressions of motherhood down on canvas – it happened organically. She was merely thinking about motherhood while she applied paint to canvas, she said, but the result was a stirring interpretation of the world’s oldest job. The circular movement in the piece evokes images of vessels and nests. Chaotic lines and colour address the unique love, tension and passion that can exist between mother and child. “I’m curious to see the reaction from folks,” Shugar said. Another abstract work, Moments Later, is awash with bright, warm colours: fuscias, yellows, oranges and reds broken up by layers of painted paper. Shugar painted it while her daughter was living in Africa, and the passionate colours came from the stress of missing her, she said. But when the painting hung in a consulate office in Zambia, many African diplomats related to it much differently, Shugar said. The colour

palette brought to mind the blazing sunsets of the continent, and one woman even found her own village hidden among the paint. Along with her traditional paintings, Shugar will also showcase her newest canvas: glass jewellery. Several months ago, Shugar made a large fused-glass pendant as part of a class, and received many compliments. An art store owner in Florida encouraged her to pursue the craft, and she now has her jewellery for sale in three stores across North America, although none in Ottawa yet. The collection, called Black Ice, features large, medium and small pendants as well as earrings made from dichroic glass. Technology centres like NASA fuse the vapours of precious and semi-precious metals to glass to create a variety of bright, iridescent colours and patterns. The glass is then broken into pieces and sold to artists. Shugar fuses her coloured glass to a piece of black glass, which creates the impression of an icy northern night. “I want them to have that look of happenstance,” she said. “That’s what nature is, it’s unpredictable.” For more information about Shugar’s traditional and “wearable art” visit www.fortuneeshugar.com. When attending the art show look for balloons and a sandwich board marking the location.

Pedestrian killed in hit and run Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - A 30-year-old man was killed on Frank Kenny Road near McFadden Road early on Aug. 11 in what police have called a hit and run. Michael Morlang was believed to have been walking on the road when he was hit by a vehicle between 5:10 and 5:30 a.m. Police were called at 5:30 a.m., and he was already dead when police arrived. A cross, with a welder’s mask perched from the side and flowers around the base sits on the east side of the road where Morlang was killed. It also bears a lo-

cal union’s sticker, Local 635 of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers. His family held his funeral on Aug. 15 in downtown Ottawa. As of press time, police spokesperson Const. Marc Soucy said police do not have any news and hadn’t made any arrests, but are investigating several tips. They are urging anyone with information to come forward.

Garden does better without the crows Continued from page 24

I was too young to know why we planted certain grains or crops, but I knew if they thrived, we would be saved for another year – I was old enough to know that. The hay was being cut with stalks dotting the fields. Many loads had already been taken to the barn and hoisted up into the loft. Unlike some of the other farmers’ hay fields in Northcote, there were no fancy bales in our fields, just hand-piled hay, gathered with a pitchfork. The smell of the newly mowed hay filled my nostrils and I often went into the barn and climbed the little ladder just to look at the hay mound, and I would be filled with contentment, knowing our livestock would be well fed over the coming winter. Our barnyard held fat cows, sheep shorn of their wool, pigs contentedly rolling in the dirt and I knew our smoke house would be filled to take us through the long winter months ahead. Mother’s garden that year, seemed to be spared the onslaught of crows and wild animals that often had their fill of the vegetables she had planted. For reasons unknown, our garden overflowed with produce, much of it to be peddled in Renfrew, and the rest to be canned in glass sealers to give us an ample table over the

winter. And that year, the lone apple tree behind our house, had sprouted a wild crop and already we had our fill of pies, crisps, and apple sauce. Already, the shelves in the crawl space under the house that served as a root cellar and a place to store Mother’s preserves and pickles were filled with jars of raspberries and chokecherry jam. And so that year, the pall of anxiety that usually filled our house, was gone. We sang joyously at night before we went to bed with Mother on her mouth organ. Father still fell asleep in the rocking chair with the Family Herald and Weekly Star spread out on his knee, but I thought the lines in his face were lessened. Still bone-tired was he, but with a look of contentment on his sleeping face. It was the only year I remember when the Depression wasn’t choking the blood out of our veins. All around us was the miracle of life. It would be replaced, as sure as death and taxes, the next year with the struggle for survival that marked that time in life, when every day was a challenge. But that year alone, there was hope that we would last to see another year of that era, known as the Dirty Thirties.

Networking group gives women a boost in business jessica.cunha@metroland.com

R0012239100

News - Shawna Norwood knows how difficult it can be to meet people. She moved from Osgoode to Sudbury, Ont. in 2010 when her husband took a position as deputy fire chief and operations manager at the Sudbury airport. The founder of McLean Media and Event Management, Norwood found herself in the position of having to re-establish her business in a new city without the benefit of knowing a soul. Starting over, she had to get to know the right people – and quickly, she said. “It was difficult having to start from scratch in an area where no one knew me,” said Norwood. “I realized I needed to reach out fast and hard.” So she developed BoostWomen, a networking organization that offers women in business the opportunity to get together once a month for dinner, followed by a motivational workshop. The Sudbury chapter has grown to more than 400 members. “Never did I realize it would have the impact it did,” said Norwood. She launched the second chapter in Kanata last month and has plans

to open a third in Osgoode in September. Norwood said she was surprised to hear there were few options for women in business to meet once a month and connect in Ottawa. “There wasn’t really anything for them in the west end; not really any opportunities to network, have a sit down dinner, to get to know each other on a personal level,” she said. “I realized it was time to expand the BoostWomen in business network for other business owners to enjoy.” There is no membership fee to join; people just pay for the dinner, which costs $40. “We don’t charge for membership; no membership fees, no annual fee, no vendor fee to set up a display table – we don’t even charge for business to have their own unique profile on our website. Women pay for the dinner and that’s it,” said Norwood. “I wanted a group that was affordable for all … By not charging allows women to want to come out and see what all this is about.” “Then they come out and they realize how great it is and that it is a women’s networking dinner but it is also very fun and social.” The first local event, held at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Kanata, attracted more than 40 women, with some coming from as far as Orléans, Embrun, Casselman and Carleton Place, said BoostWomen Kanata

chapter president Colleen Lyle. Lyle is a real estate agent with Keller Williams Ottawa Realty and founder of the Silver Lining Program, where proceeds from homes sold can be donated to a local family dealing with a life-threatening illness. BoostWomen has given Lyle a platform to discuss her projects and connect with other women in business. “The key to being successful in any business is putting yourself out there,” she said. \ “You can no longer have a website and do some marketing material and assume you’re going to be successful. In this day and age it’s all about getting out there, putting your feet on the ground and shaking hands.” The Stittsville resident said she was searching for alternatives to the early-morning network opportunities because as a mother of three, she spends the first part of her day making sure her children are prepared for school. “I’ve actually gotten to a point where I just won’t do them,” Lyle said. “It’s unfeasible.” She stumbled upon BoostWomen, which fills the gap for female professionals who are balancing work, families and personal lives, she said. “The fact that you’re mixing business without the stuffiness, I don’t know of another group that does

it and does it as successfully as Boost.” NETWORKING

The evening consists of open networking and the opportunity for people to showcase their profession or their products, dinner and a motivational guest speaker. “The nice thing about Boost was we all got to sit down for a dinner that we didn’t cook, talk as women and support each other’s businesses,” said Lyle. Lyle said she encourages women to check out a BoostWomen event. “Think about the possibilities of networking with people who want to network with you. You never know what could happen,” she said. “You could come out not only with a new client but possibly with a new friend.” The Kanata chapter hosts dinners on the fourth Monday of every month, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Holiday Inn & Suites Kanata. The next networking dinner will be held on Aug. 26. Sherry Crummy, owner of Crummy Media Solutions, will be the guest speaker. The Osgoode chapter is slated to have its first dinner on Sept. 24 at the Red Dot Café, and continue every fourth Tuesday, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, August 22, 2013

Applications for chapter president will be accepted at the first dinner event. Norwood said she chose Osgoode as the third community to open a chapter because there are no networking opportunities in that end of the city. “I just feel I need to bring a group like this to Osgoode,” she said. “(It) doesn’t have a women’s group. I just want to bring something this fabulous back to my hometown … so women have a means to reach out to one another.” Norwood, a mother of five children, said being too busy is no excuse to not attend the once-a-month dinner. “Women need to get out once a month; not only do you need it for personal development, you deserve it,” she said. “I could not have grown my business with such speed, but more importantly without the encouragement that women need from other women.” She added she is open to creating chapters in other communities in the city if there is a need. “If there is someone in the community where they feel there is a need for a group like this, I’m very open to talking with them,” she said.
