News - Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli announced on Nov. 13 at an Ottawa press conference that Ontarians will get to have their say on the proposed Energy East Pipeline. TransCanada announced the pipeline project in August. If approved, Energy East would transport more than one million barrels of Alberta oil through Ontario to Canada’s east coast. The project needs to be approved by the National Energy Board (NEB) to go ahead. If it gets the NEB’s approval, about 2,000 kilometres of pipeline would be built in Ontario, including underneath the Rideau River. See CONCERN, page 3

Putting the merry back in Christmas Resident launches campaign to bring back greeting Sabine Gibbins

Community - Russ Salo wants everyone to have a Merry Christmas. Not a happy holidays, not a seasons greetings – a Merry Christmas. The Alta Vista resident sees no harm in wishing people a merry Christmas, which is why he has launched a campaign aimed at bringing back the phrase. “It gets eroded, sanitized, and watered down,” he said.

“I really wanted to try and make a change because it means a lot to me.” Salo and a group of volunteers launched their online campaign, and have since received support from residents across the region. While not a religious organization, the group is hearing and working with people from different religious backgrounds, and have gained support from notable community leaders such as Rabbi Reuven Bulka, and the congregation of Machzikei Hadas, a modern Orthodox synagogue.

The idea to start the campaign was inspired by the changes to a longstanding tradition Salo saw happening at his children’s school. About five years ago, an annual Christmas concert was turned into a “winter celebration”, he said, in an attempt to diversify it. Gone were most of the Christmas classics, and in their place were non-Christmas themed songs such as “What a Wonderful World”. “It’s a lovely song, but has no relation to Christmas whatsoever,” he said. “I think it’s just sad. Those are songs we grew up listening to, and

ones that our children listen to. Now they have just one or two Christmas songs, like We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. They’re trying to make it into a more generic event.” Part of the campaign includes interviewing different community leaders to get a sense on where they stand on the use of the phrase, and inviting them to voice their opinions in a video message, which is then posted the Bring Back Merry Christmas website. The team is also trying to get the public school on board. See MESSAGE, page 2

In conversation with the school board’s associate director of education Walter Piovesan, Salo was told the main reason behind the change in concerts is to appease everyone in the greater community. The campaign also seeks to reach out to the city’s retail and business community and encourages them to wish customers a merry Christmas. “What kind of different shopping season experience might we affect when store employees are no longer mandated to use the phrase ‘happy holidays’?” asked Salo. Since his campaign launch earlier this fall, Salo has handed out more than 2,000 business cards to people. “Every time I go to my dry cleaners, she is always asking for more to hand out,” he said. This can only mean the group’s message is getting across.

“Everyone I’ve spoken to have said that this is an exceptional idea, they’re noticing the silliness towards the sanitizing of the phrase,” he said. “We are reaching a small population, but it’s growing organically.” SPEAK UP

Ultimately, Salo would like to see those who are in support of the greeting “Merry Christmas” to speak up and raise their voices. “They need to speak up about what’s being protected,” he said. “I call it silliness on purpose, because that’s what it is – it’s silliness. People are being silly.” It’s all about preserving the history and magic behind Christmas, Salo said, and keeping it alive.

Concern raised if pipeline crosses Rideau Continued from page 1

Environmental activist group Ecology Ottawa applauded Chiarelli’s plan to incorporate community concerns, including those of First Nations communities, in a report that will go to the Ontario Energy Board. The OEB will then submit a report to the NEB. No date has been set for when the consultation process will begin, but Chiarelli hinted it will be in the coming months. “We want this engagement with the Ontario Energy Board to inform our intervention,” said Chiarelli. “So how much control do we have? It will have to be public suasion; it will be bringing evidence to the table as intervener. “We believe the strength of our argument will be very persuasive, especially given the nature of the consultations that we’ll be bringing to the table.”

tation, already very few people knew about it. They didn’t really advertise them widely. I think that definitely needs to change.” He said he is concerned about the pipeline’s impact on the Rideau River, farming communities along the proposed layout of the pipeline, and its effects on aqueducts in the event of an oil spill.

Pipeline proposal needs community conversation: Fraser Sabine Gibbins

News - An open and transparent public discussion is needed on the proposed Energy East pipeline, said John Fraser. The Ottawa South MPP said he’s concerned about the public’s safety and the environmental implications, especially near the Rideau Canal. “It’s a big issue,� said Fraser. “We need to have that open public consultation process surrounding it. It is a public safety issue, especially

when they talk about converting the pipeline.� On Nov. 13, the Ontario government asked the Ontario Energy Board to schedule public consultations and prepare a report on the proposed Energy East Pipeline, a TransCanada project. The process will provide an opportunity for the province’s stakeholders, including residents, to share their views. The proposed pipeline would convert the existing natural gas pipeline to an oil transportation pipeline. The 4,500-kilometre pipe-


line would carry 1.1 million barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in Eastern Canada. The proposal would also see the construction of associated facilities, pump stations, and tank terminals to move the crude oil. Fraser said it was important to ensure the right decisions are made so the public is not put at risk, and added he hears from residents frequently about their concerns regarding the project. Some of those concerns include the

pipeline’s path, which could go past the Rideau Canal. The exact route will be determined after public and regulatory review, but it will likely begin with a new tank terminal in Hardisty, Alta. The new pipeline will be built in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Eastern Ontario, QuĂŠbec and New Brunswick. “I do share those concerns,â€? he said. “We need a transparent process that will give people an opportunity to voice their concerns. The more people express concern, the better, he added. “This is a big industrial issue across Canada, and public safety is the bottom of it,â€? he said. “Is this safe? There are no do-overs.â€? He echoed MPP and Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli, who remarked last week how critical it was for pipelines to be operated “in a safe and responsible manner, while protecting the environment,

MPP JOHN FRASER our natural gas supply, and ensuring the best interests of Ontarians.� The proposal is an interprovincial undertaking which requires approval from the National Energy Board to be successful. ECONOMY

On the topic of the economy, Fraser said the Liberals were confident constituents would see a balanced budget

by 2017 or 2018. The plan going forward has three major points, he added: investing in jobs, especially for youth, maintaining and investing in infrastructure for businesses and individuals, and helping create business opportunities for the community. “We’re on track,â€? said Fraser. One of the key areas Fraser is focused on in the Ottawa South area is the creation of jobs for students and youth. “We need to make sure they have a good start in life,â€? he said. The economic plan includes the Healthy Homes Renovation Tax Credit. The plan also seeks to: • Provide $1,500/year to help offset the costs of improvements that help seniors stay in their homes longer • Create 10,500 jobs/ year • Benefit taxpayers by relieving pressure on longterm care costs

Up close and personal Ottawa-born folk singer Valdy played an intimate acoustic set at a fundraiser for Karen refugees in Manotick on Nov. 18. The folk singer recalled his days in Ottawa before bringing to life songs inspired by people and places. Nearly 300 people enjoyed the performance, which took place at St. James Anglican Church. The concert was part of an ongoing fundraiser to sponsor a Karen refugee family from Myanmar (formerly Burma). After the concert, fans got a chance to chat with the Canadian legend himself. The Manotick Karen Refugee Sponsorship Program is led by St. James volunteers with help from several other churches and community groups in the village. The committee has raised nearly $18,000 already to bring the refugee family to Canada.

two people have the same shaped feet, which is why to truly be effective orthotics should be moulded to fit

and pains can actually be prevented with an orthotic in your shoe. However, before you run out to your nearest drugstore to pick up a pair, you should know custom orthotics will provide much better support and relief than a brand hanging on a shelf. An orthotic acts as a brace to provide support and reduce strain on the muscles of the foot and lower leg. No

your feet and address your individual needs. At BioPed, certified Pedorthists take the time to discover the individual needs of each patient. They conduct a gait assessment to identify any physical issues that are causing pain and discomfort and discuss lifestyle goals, concerns and medical conditions. A cast is then made of the patient’s foot and custom


Champions St. Matthew High School players, from left, Rebecca Brennan, Jordan Faris, Raiel Chapman and Nathalie Skotnicki, can’t contain their excitement as they receive the plaque for winning the senior girls A/AA high school basketball championship.

orthotics are handmade in their onsite lab to address patients’ individual needs. While store bought orthotics only last about six-months custom orthotics are made from more durable material and can last up to fouryears. If your feet change or concerns about comfort arise during that time, you can have them modified at BioPed instead of having to purchase a completely new pair. You might think that custom orthotics are too expensive. However, you’re more likely to go through several pairs of store-bought orthotics over the same period of time. In the end, you pay approximately the same amount but with custom orthotics you receive greater support and comfort.

Equality canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be compromised


ity council will soon begin discussions about a new layer of red tape designed to single out students and their landlords. The move is an attempt to create a second class of people in our city: renters. Coun. Rick Chiarelli plans to propose the regulation of rental properties, but only near Algonquin College. Landlords would need licences, and those licences would be in jeopardy if the renters bother the neighbours. Our youth, it seems, should be neither seen nor heard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a case of picking on the voters a councillor may feel they can ignore as they placate homeowners who may be bothered by noise or mess at a nearby rental property. Never mind that the city has noise and property standards bylaws already in place; better to cater to those who cast ballots in greater numbers. The proposed regulation also presumes homeowners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make noise or a mess. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hint that homeowners might need regulating in Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world. Adding the red tape of a licensing system for landlords near Algonquin could result in good, neighbourly students being booted out if landlords

decide one young person is one too many. Why take chances? If the process in onerous enough we may also see some landlords throw their hands up and walk away, selling off properties for non-residential uses. Would homeowners near the college prefer a drivethrough fast food outlet or gas station next door or across the street instead of rental homes? It should be obvious anyone to anyone buying a home near Algonquin College that students may also want to live in the neighbourhood. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students and those seeking an education in the future shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay the price for a homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of due diligence. Push out the students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from neighbourhoods within walking distance of the college â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and maybe we can instead look forward to having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;student ghettoâ&#x20AC;? elsewhere in our city where there are fewer complaints (or ones the bylaw department can ignore) instead of young renters spread evenly amongst us. The Chiarelli plan probably sounds like music to the ears of some homeowners, but it also says owners have more rights than renters. This person is more important than that person. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both divisive and small-minded.


JFK, the news and the changing times


ith increasing frequency, you get reminders of how time has changed. Take this week, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The first reminder of how much time has changed is the fact that anyone under the age of, say, 55 has no recollection at all of the event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an event that older people, and not just Americans, count as one of the most important memories of their lives. For those who are old enough, the Kennedy assassination is one of those where-were-you moments. Some of the others might be, for Canadians, the October Crisis of 1970, another event that many are too young to remember, and 9/11, which is still way too close. Those of us who were around at the time John Kennedy was shot remember being glued to our TV sets all weekend. The assassination happened early Friday afternoon and TV coverage was around the clock. Unlike today, we were dependent on television and, to a lesser extent, the newspapers, for the latest developments. Today information would be flying around on the Internet every minute. Not all of that information would be accurate, mind you. Those were the days of afternoon newspa-

Later, an extra edition would fill in more details. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another way times have changed: afternoon newspapers. You could do a lot with afternoon deadlines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get the west coast hockey results into the paper, as well as the overnight reviews of concerts, the morning developments at city council and, when necessary, an assassination. You can see how they are missed. On Sept. 11, 2001, newspapers put out extra editions in the afternoon to tell readers about the horrific

events at the World Trade Center in New York, and as recently as this month, a Toronto newspaper, The Sun, put at an extra to recount the latest developments in the Rob Ford saga. On such occasions, newspapers remember how important they are to people and go to extra lengths to put the information out. But by now, most readers are accustomed to going on line, often on newspaper websites. Times have changed. It would be nice if afternoon newspapers were around to record them. What we in the newspaper biz were told back in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s was that people were demanding a newspaper on their kitchen table in the morning. What we were also told, perhaps more significantly, was that advertisers wanted their ads on those kitchen tables all day, instead of just from late afternoon on. So all of the major papers in the country, and on the continent, went morning. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intriguing to speculate about what might have happened if they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done so. With those early deadlines, often before midnight, the newspapers could get to the breakfast table easily, but there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as much in them. Readers had to go elsewhere to find out who won some baseball and hockey games from the previous night. If they saw reviews of concerts, the reviews were written

about the first half. If there was a political development, a crime or an accident in the morning, they would read about it the next morning. That helped radio news and television news and, when it came along, that helped the Internet. The daily newspaper was becoming less of a factor in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily lives and less central to them when a major event occurred. Obviously there are still things a newspaper can do, such as provide exhaustive coverage, in-depth reporting and context. On Nov. 22, 1963, people looked to the daily newspaper for it. Today they look elsewhere.

Are we all so concerned about our individual wealth that we can’t see the elephant in the room? ing cause of disease. “Physiologically, the damage done by poverty – absolute and relative,” writes Picard, “is believed to be caused principally by stress, which

can affect brain development, cause heart damage, and can even alter DNA.” There are so many shocking statistics and quotes in Picard’s article that it’s hard to know where to begin to solve the problems. He notes that “the risk of dying of cancer within five years of diagnosis is 47 per cent higher in the low income group than the high income one,” that those in low income groups are less likely to have a family doctor, that “people living in poor neighbourhoods have a 37 per cent greater risk of suffering a heart attack than those in wealthier communities.” He tells us that “children born to low-income parents are twice as likely to end up in special education class and three times as likely to suffer

mental health problems than those in the highest income group.” Further, those in low income groups are more likely to drop out of high school, have a 58 per cent higher infant mortality rate and an 83 per cent higher rate of sudden infant death syndrome. At what point do we – and the governments that represent us – step in to turn this situation around? Are we all so concerned about our individual wealth that we can’t see the elephant in the room? And yet, there is almost nothing on the radar of today’s politicians that seems to address these stark realities. At the federal level, Prime Minister Stephen Harper continues to tout his party as the one for Canadian families, and yet he has failed to introduce a national childcare strategy, and failed to implement any deep and meaningful tax benefits for Canadian families. We’ve seen veterans pensions attacked and the old age security age hiked. Let’s face it, social spending is not, primarily, a Conservative value. See POVERTY, page 10

number of years ago, I attended a graduation ceremony. The keynote speaker went on for what seemed like forever. But there was one line that stood out toward the end: “If we lift the level of the water, everyone’s canoe will float a little higher.” The message was that we, graduates, should go forth and do something for the betterment of society, specifically for the poorest among us. Last week, an article in the Globe and Mail by health reporter Andre Picard brought home the fact that we’re not doing enough in this country to lift the level of the water. Not by a long shot. In “Wealth begets health,” part of the Globe’s series called “The wealth paradox,” Picard puts forward some startling health statistics correlating to income. Here’s a quotable quote: “Virtually every measure of population health – from child mortality to rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease and traumatic injury – is worse in poor areas than in wealth

CHEO going extra mile to find leaders Sabine Gibbins

News - Keeping children healthy is what CHEO does best. The organization launched a 20week program designed on helping parents in the community keep their children healthy and active. The program, called CHEO Healthy Kids, will allow the hospital to share their expertise and information to parents in the community. Whether a coach, teacher, student, community group, advocate, health service provider, volunteer, or concerned citizen, everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions affect and contribute to the health of children in the community, say experts from the hospital. CHEO is looking for people to nominate an individual, organization, or program that goes the extra mile to keep children physically active and healthy. EXPERTS

At the provincial level, under the Liberals, we have seen cuts to healthcare, including, most recently, a halt to long-term physiotherapy services, a move that has penalized the elderly, the disabled and those on ďŹ xed income. School breakfast programs are the exception rather than the norm. And full-day kindergarten has failed to address the reality that families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; single mothers in particular â&#x20AC;&#x201C; need quality childcare, not shoddy education. At the municipal level â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who knows whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on at the City of Ottawa? It seems bus fares and library user fees increase at every annual budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two things that affect lowincome families more than anyone else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while the police budget is forever increasing. The food bank is taxed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with increasing demand year over year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with people mostly donating only seasonally, and often with food that is lacking on the nutrition level. This is not just an issue for the political left. Poverty, as Picard notes, affects our economy and siphons tax dollars unnecessarily, affecting productivity, and adding costs to â&#x20AC;&#x153;an already overburdened healthcare system.â&#x20AC;? Picard cites one study that suggests if â&#x20AC;&#x153;those in the bottom 20 per cent of income earned as much as those one step higher on the income ladder, the savings to the health system would be $7.6 billion a year.â&#x20AC;? Are you looking for a raise? Or are you looking to raise the level of the water? Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we work together to get everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canoe to ďŹ&#x201A;oat a little bit higher?

St. Francis and St. Mark boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hockey players fight for the puck in the Manotick arena on nov. 14.

St. Mark, St. FX fight for top spot in high school hockey Emma Jackson

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more mature; we have a bit more experience.â&#x20AC;? Both teams are also stellar scorers. As of Nov. 14, St. Francis had scored 42 goals in eight games while only allowing 17. St. Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence team only allowed 15 goals while scoring 57 goals against their opponents, including several games with 10 or more goals. The team was set to meet again on Tuesday, Nov. 19. St. Francis will face Notre Dame for the last regular season game on Nov. 22 at 4 p.m. while St. Mark will take on Sir Robert Borden on Nov. 21 at 2 p.m.




Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; St. Francis Xavier High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hockey team crushed St. Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid for a perfect season just two games from the end of regular play on Nov. 14. The two schools â&#x20AC;&#x201C; located barely six kilometres from each other in Riverside South and Manotick â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are neck and neck at the top of the standings, having each won seven games and lost only one as of Nov. 14. St. Francis put an end to St. Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect season that day, winning 5-4 in the

Manotick arena after a long battle in which each team consistently answered the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a good team,â&#x20AC;? St. Mark head coach Dave Zivkovic said of the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponents after second period. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some games that mean more than others and this is one of them.â&#x20AC;? Coaches from both teams said their strength comes from their senior-heavy rosters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we were a young team, but this year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had lots of Grade 12 guys returning,â&#x20AC;? said St. Francis head coach Mike Scerbo.

Ensuring Energy East Pipeline  


Connected to your community

I was pleased to be joined by the Minister of Energy, Bob Chiarelli to announce that our government has asked the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) to undertake consultations and prepare a report on the proposed Energy East Pipeline. The consultation process will provide an opportunity for all Ontarians, including First Nation and MĂŠtis communities, and stakeholders to share their views on the pipeline proposal. I know that many Ottawa residents have deep concerns about this project. First and foremost, they have concerns about what it could mean for public safety, and the potential environmental impact the community they live in. As consumers, they have concerns about how this could impact on the cost of natural gas and electricity. Since Energy East was ďŹ rst proposed, I have expressed the primary concerns of the people I represent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that public safety and environmental protection are paramount. For that reason, I am extremely pleased that the OEB public consultations and report, will inform the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intervention with the National Energy Board.


Early morning blaze Ottawa firefighters respond to a residential building at 257 Booth St. around 6:30 a.m. Firefighters had the fire under control at 8:51 a.m. The fire was believed to be located in the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement. The cause is currently under investigation.

And most importantly, it will ensure that all those concerned have the opportunity to have their voice heard on this important issue. I am very proud that the ďŹ rst principle that will guide us as we move forward is that proposals must meet the highest available technical standards for public safety and environmental protection. For more information, please visit

War Amps explains where it began Community - The War Amps 2013 address label mailing is on its way to Ontario residents. Its theme – Where It All Began – pays tribute to the association’s 95th anniversary. For Karl, “it all began” with an accident when he was a toddler. In the letter accompanying the mailing, he describes how the War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program was there for him after he escaped his play area to explore the family farm and ended up losing his right leg in a grain auger. “Fortunately, CHAMP had been launched just two years

before, and the first thing my family learned was that there would be help whenever we needed it,” Karl said. “As I grew up, the War Amps support for artificial limbs, vast information and regional seminars gave me all the tools possible for my independence and success.” THANK YOU

Sent as a thank you to supporters of the War Amps key tag service, address labels are not just for envelopes. They can be used to identify items like books and for filling out

name and address information on forms. Karl is just one of the thousands of Champs who have benefitted from the War Amps 95 year legacy of “amputees helping amputees.” For more stories, read the association’s latest annual report at waramps. ca. The War Amps receives no government grants. Its programs are possible solely through public support of the key tag and address label service. For more information, or to order address labels, visit or call toll-free 1800-250-3030.

Southway Lighting of the South End I would like to extend an invitation to residents and businesses to join Stephen Zlepnig, General Manager of the Southway Hotel and me as we officially turn on the hotel’s magnificent display of Christmas lights. This spectacular holiday tradition continues this year with a display of over 150,000 lights!


this kind of lifestyle, and how are they going to vote if they grow up, what stories will they tell their grandchildren in the good old days of Grand Theft Auto?” “There’s a very wise Cowichan elder who once said, ‘We’ve been talking about what kind of world are we leaving for our children, but we have to start talking about what kind of children are we leaving for our world.’” When it comes to the future where politics is concerned, it’s even more astonishing to see how people are going to vote if they’re not attuned to daily is-


sues, he added. “When you think of the voters of the future, are they going to vote for politicians who are going to spend their money in the environment? Well, not if their heads are all bent over their electronics,” he said. When Bateman was a child, he would hop on his bicycle and find adventures right near his home. It’s time to change how people look at providing children with access to nature, he said. “I happened to live on a ravine, but people often say about all the kids that live in the city that they don’t have access to

nature,” said Bateman. “Well, we had bicycles, and we had the Toronto Transporation Commission, we could jump on a bus and get to nature. It’s not a big issue.” His passion for depicting natural scenes and wildlife on canvas comes from the same type of passion athletes harbour, he said. “I did it I guess for the same reason that Wayne Gretzky played hockey and the same reason why Tiger Woods played golf – that’s who I was,” he said.

News – It’s time for children to get reacquainted with the outdoors, says Canadian wildlife painter and naturalist Robert Bateman. The renowned artist made a return visit to the building named after him, Robert Bateman Public School, on Nov. 12 to challenge students to immerse themselves in nature, and step outside into their own backyards. Bateman said it was important to convey this message to the students because it could impact future generations. Stepping away from the Wii system and into an environment where learning is without bounds is a healthier alternative, he said. “I think that’s one of the most questions facing the planet in many ways,” he said. “For one thing we know with this lifestyle there’s more obesity, more Attention Deficit Disorder, more depression, more suicide, more drug abuse, more alcohol abuse, so it’s really bad for kids to be spending that much amount of time (with electronics) . . . We know nature is healing and curative, and there’s more and more neuroscience pointed to that effect.” He recalled a cartoon he saw a few years ago where two boys sat on a stoop. “One boy turns to the other and says, ‘What are you going to be if you grow up?’ If you grow up,” said Bateman. “It’s the first generation in the history of our species where significant number of kids will die before their parents die in

Students study nature


The Elves of Christmas In the small town of Winchester, North Dundas, children have made an amazing discovery. Every year, when the cold arrives, elves start appearing throughout our snowy land. There are hundreds of them: chubby ones, tiny ones, slim ones â&#x20AC;Ś Some are tall and some are short; you can ďŹ nd elves of all sorts. As incredible as it may seem, around mid-November, elves leave the North Pole and cross our country, playing tricks and practical jokes on people along the way. They only go back home on December 24, Christmas Eve. For some reason the elves like to visit BMR hardware stores and the Winchester BMR is no exception. At the Winchester BMR hardware store, several workers have noticed the presence of elves and strange things started happening. During the day, elves remain still, like statues. But when night falls, the elves start moving and running around everywhere. They are mischievous and like to play tricks on people. Some workers even found that their lunch

had already been eaten. Several elves have been spotted running through the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warehouse at nightfall, but it was impossible to catch them. They are only playing their tricks at the store until Christmas Eve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The elves appear to go back to the North Pole on December 24 to help Santa out,â&#x20AC;? explained Ken Boje the owner of the Winchester BMR hardware store. The elves can create quite a bit of mischief and attempts to catch them have become a Christmas season event in itself. They are almost impossible to catch. Well, not completely impossible because for four years now, young children in different parts of the country have devised clever ways to catch the elves. Ken Boje believes those same methods will work at his store in Winchester. Workers from other BMR stores hardware store have come to the conclusion that elves love to hide in their stores, and that, most of all, they adore chocolate. This is how little girls have captured an elf using

chocolate spread as bait. Another family is said to have captured seven elves with a special cookie recipe. Last year, the rumor of these successful captures spread throughout the country and elf footsteps have been seen everywhere from the North of QuĂŠbec to Southern Ontario and P.E.I. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Join us for the largest elf hunt in the world,â&#x20AC;? said Ken Boje. Prepare your cookies and strategically place your traps. Elves love hiding under trees, especially ďŹ rs, in alleys, under decks, in parks and near schools â&#x20AC;Ś In short, anywhere you can ďŹ nd children. Lifeless during the day, elves come out only at night. So this is when you must catch them. But beware, because they are true tricksters. So until Christmas, pay attention to signs, noises and footsteps in the snow. Set your traps and you might very well have an elf to cuddle! Every elf statue sold comes with a recipe for cookies they cannot resist, a bag to catch the elf in and a special note to write out how you caught

Continued from page 17

â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, I think that everybody, no matter if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Wayne Gretzky or Tiger Woods, would beneďŹ t from spending more time with nature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I am much more concerned about and interested in is: will they ďŹ nd entertainment at a lower level. Can these kids get excited about a bit of woods at the end of the street?â&#x20AC;? Starting on Nov. 1, all students at Robert Bateman Public School joined the 12 Days of November Nature Challenge in anticipation of Batemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to his namesake school. The challenge is the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way to show him they are listening to his call to get outdoors and explore nature. The prize was being the guest of honor at his presentation. Bateman was also lauded for his contribution to geographical literacy and his advocacy to encourage Canadians, especially students and children, to get outside and explore nature. The Royal Canadian Geographical Society awarded him the Gold Medal, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest honour in geography. Before he accepted his medal, Bateman said he wanted to meet with the students from his namesake school and talk geography.

The University of Ottawa announces the launch of its new website,, which features tabs on the home page for students and prospective students to get important information without having to navigate away. UOTTAWA

uOttawa launches new user-friendly website Michelle Nash

News - After consulting with more than 5,000 students, the University of Ottawa has launched a new userfriendly website. The site,, offers students a number of ways to find programs, costs, information about deadlines, events or library books without having to navigate away from the home page.

“Our commitment uOttawa students is to continually improve the university experience, on campus and online. This new website is a major step forward,” said the university’s president Allan Rock. “We want the student experience to be rewarding from the very first click or tap.” According to the university, the website sees a large amount of traffic, with more than 4.6 million clicks per month and 51.5 million visits a year,

including nearly seven million via mobile devices. To ensure the university was creating a mobile site students would find user-friendly, while designing the website, more than 5,000 students were consulted in advance of the redesigned site’s creation. MOBILE

Executive director of communications at the university, Drew Anderson

said the new website is both mobileand tablet-friendly and designed specifically to get current and prospective students the information they need more quickly. The university campus is front and centre, with background images of what life is like at uOttawa. “Increasingly, is the first point of contact between a future or current student and the university,” Anderson said. “We want visitors to find the in-

formation they came for, but we also want them to get a real sense of the immense beauty and vibrancy of our campus life.” The first major redesign of the website since its launch in 1997, the changes can currently only be seen on the university’s home page, but Anderson said eventually the entire will be on the new platform. “We will listen to our users, particularly students, and we will continue to improve,” Anderson said.

One photograph shows Davis, surrounded by his family, accompanied by a cutline: “Barry Davis’ family (wouldn’t exist if he was killed).” Davis, one of the few remaining survivors of the Holocaust, shared his story with grades 5 and 6 students in the school library this week. The Riverside man was unable share his story in person due to his illness, but he sent a speech, which was delivered by his granddaughter, Lisa Levitan, a Barrhaven woman who is a teacher at John Young. Davis, who immigrated to Ottawa in 1952, kept his war-time experiences to himself for decades, refusing to talk about it with his wife or children. In 1981, he was approached by Levitan, then a grade school student at an Ottawa school, who had been asked by her teacher to write a story about a heroic figure. Naturally, she chose her grandfather. “I just picked my grandfather for fun,” said Levitan. “He sat me down and told me everything about the Holocaust. “He still has difficulty speaking to his wife and children, but to his grandchildren he makes sure to have detailed information,” she said. “He wants to make sure someone is passing it on.” SURVIVAL

Davis was born in the small city of Munkach, in the former state of Czechoslovakia, the youngest in a family of four boys and five girls. “I was raised in a warm caring protective family, until it was all shattered by deportations to a variety of concentration camps and gas

The Holocaust is not the kind of experience you put behind you. “For most survivors, there’s no making peace with the memories of life in the concentration camps, where millions were humiliated, tortured and forced to witness unspeak-

able brutalities,” he said. “If I could, I would block out that period of my life completely and go on with my life. But I cannot forget what happened to my family and me and I have come to realize that it is important for me not to forget. Perhaps remembering and talking about my experiences to others will reduce the likelihood of such terrible events ever happening

in the future.” Levitan told the students how her grandfather’s family was transported on a cattle car to Poland, near Auschwitz in 1944. “The first thing that hit us when we arrived, was the horrible smell of burning flesh,” her grandfather wrote. “Flames were shooting sky high from the chimneys of the crematoriums. All that could

be heard were the commotions, barking dogs, screaming and crying of young children and their parents who were separated from each other in the darkness of the night. “I will never forget that horrifying night,” he said. “That night was the last time I saw my family.” See HOLOCAUST, page 26

Holocaust a memory survivor would rather forget Continued from page 25

In the camps, the inmates were never called by their names – numbers were tattooed on their arms for identification. Davis worked as a brick layer in the camp until mid-winter, when the inmates evacuated to Mathausen, one of the largest concentration camps in Austria, because of the advance of the Russian army. After a short six-week stay, Davis was transported to Ebenzee, known as a death camp for inmates of Mauthausen. “No one who entered the camp was supposed to survive.” One day, American soldiers arrived in tanks to liberate the camp. Over the next few months, Davis recovered under the care of an American medical unit. “I was like many of the prisoners a walking skeleton,” he writes. Davis later discovered only three of his 11 immediate family members had survived the concentration camps. “I was robbed of my education, my youth, and my parents, brothers and sisters were murdered,” he said. “Not to mention the back-breaking work and brutality of the worst kind,” he said. “Someone once said there may be some doubt about the existence of hell beyond the grave. Well, there is no doubt about it. I lived it.” Davis travelled by ship to Israel

Most importantly, I met my wonderful wife Selma,” he said. “She

from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Microchipping you pet with the OHS costs $50 ($25 for each additional pet). In the City of Ottawa, cats and dogs must be registered (also known as licensing). Microchips reduce the cost of registration. All proceeds will benefit the animals at the OHS. Animals should be in a carrier or on a leash. Owners should bring vaccination records and one piece of photo ID (for example, driver’s licence).

Brandy Hi my name is Brandy. I was born on April 13, 2013 so I am still little. I was born in the back seat of a car with my five brothers and sisters. My mom was a Cocker Spaniel and my dad was a Miniature Poodle so they tell me I am a Cockapoo. Funny name. You probably can’t tell in the newspaper but I am Chocolate Brown. My new dad is a senior and he just turned 81 today. He takes really good care of me and walks me in the neighbourhood twice a day. When my sisters come home from work they take me on long walks and I meet lots of other people and dogs. My best friend is Rosco. I play and chase Rosco and he chases me. I like playing fetch, and I play a lot. I am really happy and I have a really good home. They love me so much that they say they spoil me. It’s ok I give them lost of love too.... 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç


Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, ensuring the rapid return of the lost pet. While tags may be lost from time to time, external identification such as these are still important as a quick “visual” means of identifying your pet. The Ottawa Humane Society runs microchip clinics which you can register for by calling 613-7253166 ext. 221 or e-mail microchip@ Upcoming clinics will take place November 24


If your pet goes missing this winter, what are the chances it will find its way home? The Ottawa Humane Society is urging animal owners to take precautions by ensuring that if their dog or cat becomes lost, it has the best possible chance of a safe return — by implanting a grain-sized microchip offering permanent, lifelong identification. Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time.

Probus club hears about forgotten war Jennifer McIntosh

News - The Korean War was forgotten almost while it was going on, said Carleton University historian Andrew Burtch. In the 60th year after the armistice that ended the conflict, Burtch said it’s important to remember the war that cost 516 Canadian lives, making it the third deadliest in our country’s history. “More than 26,000 Canadian

soldiers served in that war, but they didn’t come home to fanfare and parades,” he said. Burtch spoke to the Probus Club of Western Ottawa on Nov. 12 at the Kanata United Church. Burtch said the circumstances at the end of the Second World War provided the fodder for the conflict, not unlike the situation in east and west Berlin. “We had the communist regimes of China and the Soviet Union in charge of the northern

part of Korea and the U.S. capitalist mentality in the south. War broke out when North Korean forces crossed the 38th parallel into South Korea on June 25, 1950. The South Koreans were unprepared for the assault and were pushed all the way to the Pusan peninsula before UN forces joined the fray to keep the North Koreans at bay. Burtch said because Canada was focused on rebuilding the economy with the soldiers re-

turning from Europe, it was harder to man the missions to Korea. “You got a lot of people who re-enlisted because they had trouble readjusting to civilian life or people who had wanted to join up in the Second World War but were too young,” he said. A new Canadian battalion joined the fight in August 1950, but had to train for an additional eight weeks to deal with the mountainous terrain.

Burtch said most of the fighting took place at night and guerilla warfare was common. “The Chinese army was very well trained in these tactics,” he said. Eight Canadian destroyers were sent to Korea’s coast, but they were regularly under fire and their targets tough to hit because the ships mostly engaged in shore bombardments. The conflict officially ended in July 1953, but involved thousands of meetings between the Chinese and UN officials. Burtch said one of the sticking points was what to do with pris-

oners of war. “There were a lot of people from the North who would have faced punishment if they were repatriated, so eventually everyone agreed to let the prisoners decide if they wanted to return there or stay in the South,” Burtch said. Burtch, who has a doctorate in Canadian history, helped to set up the Korean War exhibit at the Canadian War Museum. “It really is the forgotten war, but I think it’s important to remember the contributions that were made by those in service,” he said.

Wreath brought a bit of joy for Mother


STRANDHERD-ARMSTRONG BRIDGE UPDATE I would like to provide residents with an update on the construction of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge. In keeping with our commitment, city officials have continued to work with the contractor to look for opportunities for advancement of this project. Progress has been made and key milestones have been reached including the completion of the welding of the arches, the assembly of the bridge, the deck formwork, the deck steel reinforcement and, as of the last week, the pouring of the bridge deck. The ability to get this work done prior to the winter months is a testament to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment. With the completion of the pouring of the deck, work continues on site. Demolition work continues with the removal and demolition of all of the temporary footings. Once the footings have been removed the task of excavating the temporary rock-fill access road will begin. In addition to the above work that is ongoing, residents can also expect to see placing of the roadway granular work and continued utility work (i.e. Hydro, Bell, Rogers, traffic, lighting and sewers) occurring in the future. City engineers continue to work very closely with the contractor to ensure all opportunities to accelerate the work continue to be explored. I am pleased that progress continues to be made. I look forward to the completion of each and every phase of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge project. Please visit my website at for regular updates and photos of the bridge construction. FREE WORKSHOP ON ENTREPRENEURSHIP FOR TRANSITIONING MILITARY MEMBERS The Princeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Operation Entrepreneur program will be hosting a free, one-day workshop for transitioning military personnel, veterans and their partners in the Ottawa area.

This Brigade has a long history with the City of Ottawa and its surrounding communities. One of the most notable events affecting our city was the Ice Storm of 1998 when the military was brought in to assist during the coldest, darkest part of winter. They helped clear debris, provided medical assistance, evacuated residents, canvassed door-to-door to make sure people were safe, and also worked to restore power. I would like to congratulate the 33 Canadian Brigade Group for receiving this well deserved honour. MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR CHRISTMAS EVENTS IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

Of course any wax that was left over was put aside to set and then cut into blocks and again stored in the little honey pail to use when Mother again put down preserves and pickles. Nothing was wasted. Audrey and I thought the leaf display was lovely and it stayed on the table for the whole week. Audrey said it was the steady throbbing heat of the Findlay Oval, Father said they had just died a natural death, but by the next Saturday, the leaves had started to curl and after Emerson dropped several spoons from the spoon holder, he said accidently, the leaves started to look the worst for wear. It was with great reluctance the next Saturday morning, what was left of the leaves was gathered up and tossed into the cook stove. Father said it was time. After all, that night it was our turn to host the Saturday night house party and the old pine table was needed for euchre. A red geranium, which had seen better days, took the place of the wreath of wax leaves. It and the waxed leaves was Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way of trying desperately to bring a bit of cheer to an old log house that for generations had known nothing more than a life lived in the simplest of ways.

We shoved the fallen leaves around the ground with the toes of our boots and ever so carefully gathered those we thought were exactly what Mother had asked for. She had given us a breadbasket to bring them in and she told us over and over again to handle them very carefully, laying one on top of the other so they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break. While Audrey and I were out in the yard picking through the leaves, which by that time in the fall were wet and soggy, Mother was in the kitchen melting the wax from the tops of the opened pickle and preserves jars on the Findlay Oval. She had spread out pages of the Renfrew Mercury on the bake table and Audrey and I were told to very, very carefully, lay out the leaves, making sure they were placed gently on a tea towel. Mother, as carefully as she would wipe a babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom, dabbed the leaves with a tea towel. She brought the pot over to the bake table and, picking up a leaf at a time by its stem, dipped it carefully into the melted wax. The leaf was then put onto yet another tea towel where Mother said anyone who touched it would do so at their own peril! Father came in for his supper, glanced at the waxed leaves, shook his head and headed for the wash basin. Not a word was mentioned about the waxed leaves over supper. But Mother rushed us through â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;reddingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; up the kitchen that night and had Audrey wipe the redcheckered oilcloth twice to make sure it was good and dry. She then carefully,

making a circle around the sugar bowl and spoon holder, laid out the waxed leaves. She overlapped them and Audrey and I thought we had the cleverest mother in all of Renfrew County. With the simple placing of waxed leaves, Mother had turned our plain old table into something grand. Father complained there was no place to put the coal oil lamp. Mother settled that by pulling down the Coleman lamp that hung over the table and was used only when we had company, as the fragile wicks cost a whole dime at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store.

here Mother got the idea, no one knew. It certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t from Aunt Bertha on the next farm. She was far too practical to do something that took a lot of time and really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t amount to a hill of beans when it came to keeping food on the table. No, my sister Audrey said it was probably something she picked up when she lived in New York. Father of course, said he never heard of anything so crazy in his whole life. Fall had settled in and with the blasts of cold winter already closing in around us -- although snow yet to come -- Mother decided she would do something to keep the season alive as long as she could. The lawn at the side of the house still had plenty of fallen maple leaves on the ground and Mother thought it would give a nice touch to the table at meal times if she could just bring a bit of those rich fall colours indoors. She was going to wax the leaves and place them on a lace doily all around the spoon holder and the sugar bowl. A small honey pail held all the pieces of wax that came off the top of the preserve and pickle jars once they were opened and Mother would use it instead of buying a whole box of wax at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store. That alone should have impressed Father, but it did nothing of the sort. He still thought waxing leaves was right up there with trying to nurse geraniums through the winter once they had lost their bloom, which Mother was prone to do, but she paid him no heed. It was on a Saturday, a cold fall day, when she sent Audrey and me out to the yard. We were to bring in only those leaves which were perfectly formed, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a break in them, or a mark on them and were to be the largest and reddest we could ďŹ nd.

Boomer group gets boost from province Funding to help French organization expand to Anglophone communities Michelle Nash

News - A new grant will help a francophone baby boomer support group expand into anglophone communities across the city and the province. Retraite en Action brings members of the baby boom generation, as well as other seniors and new retirees, to-

gether to participate in different activities in sports, for community service and volunteer opportunities, organized trips, and hobby groups. Operating since 1996 at Le Patro in Lowertown, the group has only focused on the francophone community. A grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation for $313,900 will change that by

allowing services to be extended to as many as 18 satellite organizations for both languages. “There is a need,” said Jean Luc Racine, Retraite en Action executive director. “I get calls all the time from English-speaking groups that want to participate. Right now there is nothing, but we are hoping to expand that.” Ottawa-Vanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur announced the provincial grant at a monthly breakfast meeting on Nov.12. See CLUB, page 30

Club has strong focus on promoting passions Continued from page 29

“Thanks to your tailor-made programs and the values that motivate you, young of mind, body and spirit, you will be able to nurture the development and fulfillment of an active and dynamic retirement,” Meilleur said. The plan is to start up three anglophone groups in the city by spring of 2014. Dubbed Retirees in Motion - the English counterpart of the organization will operate the same way by attracting young retirees and baby boomers from across the province to get involved in joining an activities group. To do that, Racine said, the club has a strong focus on promoting passions. “To get people interested, it has to be different than a traditional seniors group,” he said. “You have to work with their passions, get them excited to participate.” And as far as the organization is concerned, it has been working. The expansion of the francophone group has grown quickly and according to Racine, it has all been based on word of mouth. In September alone, he said 200 new members signed up. “There is no promotion, but it

keeps growing, people want to be apart of this group.” There are 350 programs and activities which operate in the Ottawa region, aimed at members ranging in age from 55 to 90 years old. “We are attracting people who want to be active,” Racine said. Typically, he said, the group will hold monthly meetings where a member will present a recent trip, outing or sporting adventure to the group. Racine said this helps motivate more members to do the same. In the coming months, expansion plans will evolve, Racine said, as the need arises but the executive director said he will be taking some time to reach out to specific existing anglophone organizations to see if they are interested in partnering with Retraite en Action. The funding will be handed out over a three year period. The satellite organizations will receive support and guidance from Retraite en Action, but will be individual organizations, managing separate memberships. For more information about the upcoming English senior programming, Racine invites people to give him a call at 1-866-323-6695, ext. 21.

Resource centre offers healthy dating seminars ‘We want to equip them with knowledge so they can make better choices’: volunteer Jessica Cunha

News - The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre is aiming to educate youth and teenagers on the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships. Volunteers with the resource centre have been hosting presentations in local schools for grades 7 and 8 students for about five years, said Terry Longhorn, a volunteer and peer support worker in the violence against women program. “We want to make a difference at the early age, before the students get into the actual dating scene,” she said. “We want to equip them with knowledge so they can make better choices.” The healthy dating relationships program is offered through the violence against women program run by the resource centre. “We’re dealing with the results when we’re dealing with women in shelters,” said Longhorn. “In schools, we’re going right back to the beginning so kids are aware.” According to a pamphlet the resource centre hands out to students: • Canadian youth begin dating or “going out” as early as age 11 * 40 per cent of teenage girls ages 14 to 17 report knowing someone their age who has been hit or beaten by a boyfriend • Teen victims of dating violence are more likely to abuse drugs, have eating disorders, and attempt suicide • 26 per cent of teenagers said they are very concerned about dating violence; 31 per cent said they or a friend experienced dating violence November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month and Metroland Media is publishing articles throughout the month on various aspects of violence against women and the services offered by the resource centre.

Two different healthy dating relationships presentations are offered: a one-period lecture for Grade 7 students, introducing them to the idea of healthy versus unhealthy relationships. The presentation for Grade 8 students runs over three consecutive weeks where volunteers discuss gender, gender stereotypes and societal values; myths and facts regarding relationships; followed by red flags and where to turn for help, said Jenn Wilks, peer support program co-ordinator in violence against women services. Last year, volunteers spoke with more than 600 grades 7 and 8 students. “I think a huge aspect of prevention is education and awareness,” said Wilks. “We hear from older women in the (violence against women) program that they were never told what is healthy and what is unhealthy. For my generation, we were taught sex ed – the biology – but we were never taught what a healthy relationship looks like. “We think it’s really important to start at a young age.” Wilks and Longhorn said some of the red flags of unhealthy relationships include a partner who: • Tries to control their partner’s behaviour • Isolates their partner from friends and family • Is constantly texting or calling, needing to know where their partner is at all times • Shows extreme jealousy and the need for power and control “Jealousy, yes, is a sign of human emotion but extreme jealousy is also an early warning sign,” said Longhorn. Violence is a cycle, often starting with a “honeymoon” period, followed by abuse. “An abusive relationship doesn’t start as abusive. It starts off as all sunshine and lollipops,” Longhorn said. “It grows over time; your family gets pushed away, you’re isolated, you aren’t allowed to talk to your friends.” The healthy dating relationships program aims

to give youths the tools to recognize the signs in their own relationships, but also prepares them to help others. “We know that young people often don’t report abuse to an adult in their life. They’re more likely to talk to their peers,” said Wilks. Longhorn said the best thing to do if someone confides they are in an unhealthy or abusive relationship is to believe them, then help them find a safe adult – perhaps a parent, guidance counsellor or teacher – to talk to, or to call a helpline. “Coming into the schools, it also makes the staff, the teachers, the parents, aware,” she said. “We’re just trying to help people recognize and be in a healthy relationship.” POSTER CONTEST

Volunteers also offer a one-period presentation on dating violence for grades 9 to 12 students. The students are given a short quiz to see what they know about dating violence and then they watch a video on the warning signs of relationship abuse. Afterwards, they are invited to participate in the resource centre’s poster contest. “We invite them to create a poster expressing to their peers what they want them to know about dating violence,” said Wilks. This year’s winning entry was created by Sarah Davis and Kylie Hailstone from South Carleton High School. The winning entry encouraged students to “Fight the Silence.” The poster contest is now open to submissions with a final deadline of May 2014. “They’re amazing, they do a great job,” said Longhorn. “We’ve had some excellent (submissions).” She said it’s important to dispel the myth that “you’re nobody until somebody loves you.” “The first person who loves you is you,” Longhorn said. “You need to love who you are before you can love somebody else.” For more information or to schedule an inschool presentation, call 613-591-3686 or visit With files from Blair Edwards

Resources for youth Jenn Wilks, peer support program co-ordinator in violence against women services, said the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre created a healthy dating relationships program for grades 7 and 8 students to help them make positive choices. • Abuse has several forms: physical, emotional, financial, sexual, and psychological. All of these are equally unacceptable. • The abuse is not your fault. Regardless of what your abuser may say, nothing you did or said caused, or made you deserve abuse. • Abuse is not caused by the use of alcohol or drugs, and these factors cannot be considered an excuse. • Abuse is not something to be ashamed of and you do not need to tolerate it.

Homelessness organization names new executive director Michelle Nash

News - The city has a new leader in the battle against homelessness after the Alliance to End Homelessness announced Mike Bulthuis is taking over the reins of the organization. The current Vanier Community Association president succeeds Lynne Browne, who recently stepped down, in the position. Bulthuis is a social policy and poverty reduction worker who has experience working on national-based policies to help end homelessness. The new executive director said he is looking forward to working at a community level to squash homelessness in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The alliance draws together the breadth of experience and insight within our community, collectively pursuing and calling for an end to homelessness,â&#x20AC;? Bulthuis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am excited to join with so many others in Ottawa, working with all orders of government, non-profit organizations, the private sector and the community towards this goal.â&#x20AC;?

Mike Bulthuis takes over the reigns at the Alliance to End Homelessness. MIKE STEINHAUER/SUBMITTED

Bulthuisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past experience includes working in the public service, with a focus on development of social policy. He also volunteers his time on community boards, including the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former health and social services advisory committee. The alliance, founded in 1995, consists of a membership base of 45 different city organizations as well as individual members. Organizations in the alliance include the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, Action Housing, Minwaashin Lodge, Centre 454, Bruce House, Operation Come Home and the Youth Services Bureau. Bulthuis said he is looking forward to working with these organizations, some of which he sees as both mentors and leaders in the fight against homelessness. See DIRECTOR, page 35

Director immersed in community Continued from page 34

The change-over of directors is just in time for the allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual fall forum, which will take place on Nov. 26 at the University of Ottawa. The forum will welcome members and interested participants, providing an opportunity to discuss housing and social innovations, re-

flection of homelessness in Ottawa and toolkits to help work with landlords. The Wellesley Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of housing Michael Shapcott and Jino Distasio, director of the Institute of Urban Studies at the University of Winnipeg, will be presenting at the forum. Plans for the upcoming year in-

clude conducting the allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 annual report card on ending homelessness, which will be released in the spring. In the allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 report, the group gave the city an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? for making affordable housing available to the homeless. According to the report, 139 new affordable units were created in

the community and an additional 747 households were helped with rent, with the majority of that paid through the city. Bulthuis applauds the city for its commitment to help reduce homelessness, but said the annual $14 million pledged by city council in May 2011 to increase the supply of affordable housing and providing

housing options is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to what the city needs to completely end homelessness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ultimate solution for homelessness is housing,â&#x20AC;? Bulthuis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible. I know what we are trying to do is possible. There is no need for people to be homeless for a long period of time.â&#x20AC;?

Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on November 13, 2013 established its intention to designate the Alexander Fleck House, 593 Laurier Avenue West under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value. Description of the Property The Alexander Fleck House is a two-and-a-half storey red brick residential building constructed in 1902 with a later two-storey addition on the western elevation. It is located at 593 Laurier Avenue West, at the corner of Laurier and Bronson Avenues, just outside the western border of Centretown in the City of Ottawa. Heritage Value The Alexander Fleck Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural heritage value is demonstrated through its architectural signiďŹ cance as an excellent example of a Queen Anne Revival style house with a high degree of craftsmanship, its association with Alexander Fleck Jr. and the Fleck family, as well as its character as a community landmark. The house is valuable as an excellent example of the Queen Anne Revival style which was popular from the 1880s to 1910. The house, with its steeply-pitched, cross-gable roof with tall chimneys, projecting bays, stone porch with gabled roof and wood columns, use of multiple materials and its geometric and ďŹ&#x201A;oriated motifs is typical of the Queen Anne Revival style. Excellent craftsmanship can be seen in the complex roof lines and massing, the intricate brick and stone work, as well as the decorative stained glass.

Ruth E. Dickinson Library (Barrhaven) 100 Malvern Drive Ottawa, ON K2J 2G5 Tel: 613-580-2796

Historical value is found in the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s association with Alexander Fleck Jr. who owned and operated Alexander Fleck Limited, Vulcan Iron Works on Wellington Street in the late 19th and early 20th century. The general machine shop and foundry which was founded by Fleckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father contributed to a number of important local projects such as the Cornwall Canal and Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s street rail system. They held the castings contract for the Canada Atlantic Railway and manufactured machinery for the saw and paper mill industries. Alexander Jr. lived in this house from the time it was constructed in 1902 until his death in 1923. His widow, Maud Fleck, stayed in the house until 1940.

Councillor calls for more wind-farm consultation early 2014. Chiarelli also said Moffatt’s motion matches what the province wants to do. “We’re on the same page,” Moffatt said. But until those new rules are in place, Moffatt said he wants it known that North Gower opposes any application for a wind farm in the village. “As long as (Prowind is) interested and as long as there is no mechanism for saying the village is opposed to it, the threat is there,” Moffatt said.

Laura Mueller

News - With wind-farm concerns still simmering in North Gower, local councillor Scott Moffatt wants the city to have a stronger voice in whether those projects get OK’d. Moffatt, who represents Rideau-Goulbourn ward, said his motion is merely a request to the province, but he hopes the gesture has an impact. During the next city council meeting, Moffatt hopes councillors will vote in favour of his non-binding request for the province to make whatever legislative or regulatory changes are needed to give municipalities a “substantive and meaningful role in siting wind projects.” Ottawa is the largest Ontario municipality that could be affected by the placement of wind farms, Moffatt said. Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli has said he is not in favour of municipalities having veto rights over wind energy projects. But the province has begun to make moves to allay local wind-farm concerns.

Local governments are responsible for land-use planning decisions, and the locations of wind farms have implications for local planning, Moffatt said. The province’s insistence on having authority over those decisions and a lack of dialogue with municipalities has resulted in 70 cities and towns in Ontario declaring themselves unwilling to host wind farms. The community of North Gower wants Ottawa to be

on that list when it comes to a proposed Prowind Canada facility in their community. A group there called Ottawa Wind Concerns has presented a petition signed by more than 1,200 people to city council. The group is concerned that turbines could have negative effects on physical and mental health, as well as ruin the landscape. With files from TorStar News Service


Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt wants the community to have a stronger voice when it comes to wind-farm consultations. In the past, Chiarelli has said it’s unlikely for Prowind Canada would get approval for the North Gower wind farm without the city’s consent. This summer, Chiarelli outlined a new policy that would require proponents of

large wind-farms to “work directly with” municipalities on where new turbines could be located. After meeting with the minister last week, Moffatt said Chiarelli indicated those new guidelines are coming in

Zoning Study on Local Shops and Services in Residential Neighbourhoods

ROUTES AVAILABLE! We’re looking for Carriers to deliver our newspaper!

Is there a corner store or shop in your neighbourhood? Would it be convenient to have a neighbourhood store providing goods and services in your community?

Online questionnaire We want to hear your views on this important zoning study that will determine appropriate locations for local commercial zoning within existing residential neighbourhoods. Existing small shops, such as convenience stores, barbers, laundromats, florists and cafés, are often located in residential areas. Current zoning may not permit these businesses beyond what currently exists. This study will consider rezoning these sites, where appropriate, to permit the businesses to continue to contribute to their community. The study will also consider possible new locations for, scale of, and provisions for, neighbourhood-focused commercial uses that might fall between a home-based business and a full-fledged retail store. You are encouraged to visit the website at for more information, and to provide your views through an online questionnaire from November 21, 2013 to January 31, 2014. Your participation is an integral part of this study.

IN THE MATTER OF THE ONTARIO HERITAGE ACT Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on November 13, 2013 established its intention to designate the St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value. Description of Property St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, constructed in 1908, is a large, brick clad wooden Roman Catholic Church. It is located between Beechwood Avenue and Barrette Street in Ottawa’s Vanier neighbourhood. Heritage Value The cultural heritage value of St. Charles Church lies in it being a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style, its important role in the Francophone Catholic community and in its contextual value as a landmark in Vanier. Designed by Québec architect Charles Brodeur, St. Charles Church is a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style. Neoclassicism was popular in Canada from 1800 until 1860 but churches continued to be built in this style in Québec and French-speaking Parishes outside of Québec into the 20th century. Typical of the style, St. Charles Church has a smooth, symmetrical façade and a simple, cruciform plan. It features a symmetrical fenestration pattern, and a projecting entrance tower topped by a wooden belfry and flanked by two tower like corner pilasters topped with smaller belfries. St. Charles Church has historical value for its association with the Francophone Catholic community in Ottawa. The congregation was formed in 1908 in response to demands by the local Catholic community who thought that other Francophone churches in Ottawa were too far away from Vanier. In 1912, Father François-Xavier Barrette was appointed Parish Priest and under his guidance, the church quickly became the centre of the Francophone Catholic community in Vanier. In 1926, Barrette and a small group of civil servants formed the Order of Jacques Cartier, an all male secret society intended to protect and promote Francophone Catholic values. It grew rapidly in the first half of the 20th century and is credited with the development of many Francophone organizations including Club Richelieu International, a service club that is still active today. The Order of Jacques Cartier was dissolved in 1965, as a result of the societal changes prompted by the Quiet Revolution. The location of St. Charles Church along the curve of Beechwood Avenue and its tower topped with a blue neon cross make it a prominent local landmark. It has contextual value as it contributes to the distinctive French Canadian identity in the Vanier community. Objections Any person wishing to object to this designation may do so by letter, outlining the reasons for the objection and any other relevant information. This letter must be received by the Clerk of the City of Ottawa either by registered mail or personally delivered within 30 days of the publication of this notice. When a notice of objection has been received, the Council of the City of Ottawa will refer the matter to the Conservation Review Board for a Hearing and a Report.

Notice of Public Open House Queen Street Renewal: Bronson Avenue to Elgin Street - Environmental Assessment & Design Wednesday, December 11, 2013 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, Jean Pigott Hall The City of Ottawa is undertaking an Environmental Assessment and detailed design study for the proposed Queen Street Renewal project. The project involves a comprehensive streetscape renewal of the Queen Street surface infrastructure from Bronson Avenue to Elgin Street (see map).

The anticipated modifications to the street surface will be in support of the Confederation Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) project and will address the anticipated increase in pedestrian volumes resulting from two LRT stations that will be constructed along Queen Street. The project will also be guided by the Vision and Strategic Directions of the City’s associated Downtown Moves: Transforming Ottawa’s Streets initiative, which designates Queen Street as a “Showcase Street”. The study process is following the requirements of a Schedule ‘C’ project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process. At the meeting, information regarding the study process, project objectives, existing conditions, alternative designs, and the preliminary evaluation of the alternatives, will be presented. City Staff and their consultants will be available to answer questions. For further information or to provide comments, contact the City’s project manager or the consulting team project manager at the addresses below. Ravi Mehta, P. Eng.
