EMC news - Fourteen years ago, a girl named Rachel Scott was sitting on the grass out front of her school when two boys approached her and shot her five times. She didn’t know it at the time, but her life and death would help create a positive chain reaction all the way to Ottawa. Scott died on the grass in front of Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. She was the first of 13 students killed during the massacre. A popular and friendly girl, Scott always reached out to other students and friends in need, but it was not until her death that her influence on her town, her country and now the world has spread all the way to the students at two schools in Ottawa. Before she died, Scott had written an essay on how people should treat other people. Her father found her writing and deciding to share it with the world, creating Rachel’s Challenge, a program about how to stop bullying. Ridgemont High School teacher, Toula Makris heard

about the program and decided Scott’s message was important to share with her students and the students at another local school, Rideau High School. “I thought it was a really important to bring this message to the kids,” Makris said. “And the kids have been so impacted by this presentation.” Kristy Krings of Rachel’s Challenge came to both schools during the week of May 13 to tell Scott’s story and to present the anti-bullying program. “Right now in your schools, in your community, there are people who are going through things and a simple act of kindness can change that,” Krings said. The program is about five challenges: change how you feel about others, dream big and write down those dreams, choose positive influences, speak with kindness, and remind those you love how special they are. The challenges are simple at heart and Krings explained this is why Scott believed creating positive change in the world was possible. See COLUMBINE, page 3

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library wants people to peek into a crystal ball and imagine what the library should look like in the future. Notably, the library wants to know what it should stop doing – not just new things it should take on. The central questions posed in the online survey – the first phase of the public engagement process – ask what the library should continue doing, what should it start doing and what should it stop doing in the next five years. “We know that we are changing,” said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, chairwoman of the Ottawa Public Library board. “We are not currently delivering library services in the best way,” she said. The campaign is online at imagineopl-bpo.ca now and will be open for public comment until June 15. Those who participate will be eligible to win an iPad. People can post ideas and vote on other people’s ideas. A day after the campaign launched the top idea, speed-dating for volunteer opportunities, had already received almost 250 “likes.” While discussing the possibility of closing library branches is politically unpopular, it might be time to re-open that debate, Harder said. “Do we continue to support and sustain our 33 branches and our Bookmobile?” Harder said. “Or do we look at other opportunities that people may suggest and they may say will serve them just as well. “Is that the best use of the taxpayers’ money?” she added. Adding user-pay programs to the library’s repertoire should also be

considered, Harder said. “I am not afraid to start charging for some stuff,” she said. “Right now it’s a free ride at the library and I don’t think that it needs to be. “I’m not looking to make money, but I don’t think we should be hindered from being relevant by not wanting to charge someone $25 for having something unique that people want,” Harder said. Harder said she’d like to see the libraries have more flexible space. She suggested putting the shelves on wheels so they could be moved around and the space repurposed to offer more programs. “So the space that you’re using isn’t necessarily a large amount, but it is vibrant, vital and mobile,” Harder said. Reducing the size of reference sections and instead focusing on helping people find the information in new ways should also be a priority, Harder said. “We’ve got a big job ahead of us. We do want to make sure we’re staying relevant,” she said. Library chief executive officer Danielle MacDonald said she wanted to undertake the consultation “primarily because it makes good sense to connect with our customers.” But the library also wants to hear from people who don’t use the library about why, and what might make them begin accessing library services in person or online. “We know there are new opportunities but we also know there are choices,” MacDonald said. The consultation will set the direction for an update to the library’s strategic plan that should take form early next year. It will be the first time the library has done a major overhaul of its master plan since the city amalgamated. R0012104109.0523

Columbine tragedy resonates with Ottawa high school students Continued from page 1

According to Makris and Rideau’s school guidance counselor, Wendy Lamble, the students reacted well to the challenges. “Students you wouldn’t think would even care were emotional and wiping away tears throughout the assembly,” Makris said. Between the two schools 200 students participated in the program and workshops. Krings said she couldn’t believe how enthusiastic and how much the students at the school embraced the challenges. “I have rarely felt so welcome, but this community has been amazing, the students have been amazing and I have had a great time working with the kids,” she said.

story. “For most students Columbine is a big shock, they were babies when it happened,” Krings said. “But it’s a story about a real person and that is what I think resonates with them.” Lamble said her students will be taking what they learned in the workshops and applying it to school events, assemblies and other already-organized school clubs. “I’m looking forward to seeing what the students do with what they learned,” Lamble said. Makris said she has already been encouraged by her students, who are already talking about holding a ‘cupcakes for kindness’ bake sale and other little events to promote kindness in the school.

Krings said Scott’s message can reach out to all ages and the important thing to remember is anyone can change the world or make a positive impact on someone else’s life. Scott, Krings explained was always reaching out to others and after she died, these individuals reached out to her family to tell how important their daughter was. It was these stories, Scott’s writings, poems and drawings and the images from that horrific day at Columbine High that make up the presentation of Rachel’s Challenge. Although the students who Krings presents to these days may have been very young or not even alive when the killings at Columbine took place, Krings said each student still manages to relate to the

Marathon drummers to hit race weekend Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland

EMC news - While some onlookers might only see marathon racers stretching their limbs before the big race, there will be a group of nine men also stretching in preparation for a different kind of marathon. During the Ottawa Race Weekend marathon, the Heritage Hands Ottawa Drum Club will be performing for a total of four hours on May 24 to encourage the more than 10,000 racers across the finish line. “We will be drumming until every last runner or straggler has crossed the line,” said Michel Monette, co-founder of the club. “We won’t leave until everyone else is gone.” Monette and longtime friend Charles St-Jean have been drumming most of their lives, starting together in the De La Salle Ca-

dets when the two were only 15 years-old and lived next to each other in Lowertown. In 1998, St-Jean brought some of the old drummers together for a reunion and since that meeting the group has been playing at shows and for fun in the Ottawa area. “It’s passion and friendship that keep us together,” St-Jean said. The group average age is 60, which the men joke is why they will be stretching too before the marathon. “It’s physically demanding,” said Armand Vienneau, a drummer in the group. “It can take a lot out of you.” The group performs both old historic military rhythms and new songs they composed together. The only drumming club of its kind in Ottawa, members from all across the city come to play with the group.

Passionate about drumming, the club members say they perform more for the enjoyment than for money these days, taking gigs where they can get them. “It’s the rush,” Monette said. The group used to play before football games at Lansdowne Park and said they loved performing in front large crowds, but say their most enjoyable audience members are children. “They just surround us when we play,” Vienneau said. Even though there are nine members in the group, the men say they are always looking for more experienced drummers to join. “We are not getting any younger,” St-Jean said. The troop will be performing by the War Museum from 7 to 11 a.m. on May 24. For more information about the group, please visit www.heritagehandsottawa.ca.

Community events take market to new level Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The Manotick Farmer’s Market is growing faster than its vendors’ vegetables as it gears up for an expanded season in Dickinson Square. The market opens on Saturday, June 1, three weeks earlier than last year, and will run every Saturday until Thanksgiving weekend. New vendors are setting up shop, including a bakery and several local meat producers. But it’s all the extras planned for the season that make the market an exciting destination this summer. Market president Paul Mussell,

who owns Carmel Farms south of Manotick, said the market has a long list of community activities planned for the season. “We’re trying to have something happen every weekend,” he said. Whether it’s an event run by Watson’s Mill - such as the Manotick art show in June or market-run activities like a horse-drawn wagon, Mussell said there’s always more than fresh food available. Each week the market will offer a free community tent, where non-profit groups can promote their organization and reach out to visitors. The market will also feature a different product each week.

On July 6 the market will offer free horse-drawn wagon rides around the square. On August 10, an Authors Day will invite local writers to promote their books. Hockey expert Liam Maguire is already confirmed, Mussell said. Mussell said he is still looking for local entertainers to do some busking in the park as well. Osgoode resident Christina Leese, who owns the Hot Potato Co. food truck which offers local, gourmet baked potatoes, said the market will start its season on an exciting foot as it takes part in the Dickinson Days parade on Friday, May 31. “I’m excited; it should be lots of fun,” she said. The market will be open from

B

8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 1 to tie in with Dickinson Days, the village’s annual community celebration. Regular market hours will return on June 8, when the market will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Leese’s company participates in several farmers’ markets around the city, but she said Manotick’s market is special. “It’s a very healthy, vibrant market,” she said, adding that she loves how local everything is. “Literally the source of my food is all around me. I can’t think of a nicer place to park (my truck).” For more information visit www.manotickfarmersmarket. com.

Early prevention key message at foundation meeting

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Linda Moncion, left, with her husband Marcel Moncion and Kidney Foundation volunteer Lyn Presley, show off their awards from the Eastern Ontario chapter’s annual general meeting on May 14. The Moncions were recognized for their ongoing support of the Kidney Foundation as owners of the Independent grocery store in Riverside South. Presley accepted an excellence award on behalf of her husband David, who is recovering from a kidney transplant operation. Early prevention

ed kidney eventually became diseased, and Moira was on dialysis for several years before she died from breast cancer in 1987. Johnson also has kidney disease in her remaining kidney, but is not yet on dialysis. Still, Johnson said she’s aware how remarkable her story still is 55 years later. “We knew it was important,” she said.

Teach kids how to lead a healthy lifestyle and we’ll prevent a lot of kidney disease. This was the message from Ottawa Hospital kidney expert Dr. Shiv Jindal, who spoke at the AGM. It was the first time the foundation invited several speakers to address current issues in the

in support of the foundation. He went into surgery about 12 hours later, and by early Tuesday morning was in recovery. “It has been a long five years leading up to this,” Lyn wrote in an email to her supporters that day. “Our thoughts and extreme gratitude is very much with the donor family who, in their time of grief made the decision to give life to others.”  Stittsville teacher Marianne Graham was recognized for her “infectious enthusiasm” as she and her family raised $12,000 for the foundation at a community event last year. Graham donated her kidney to her husband Bill six years ago. Frank Fenn and Lucie Duguay from the Carlingwood Mall received the Rabbi Reuven P. Bulka award for an event they held at the west-end mall in February, where they signed up 300 new people to be organ donors. A former staff member had needed a kidney transplant, and Fenn and Duguay decided to support him with their fundraiser. Along with signing up 300 new donors, they also raised about $5,000 for the foundation. Linda and Marcel Moncion, who own the Your Independent Grocer in Riverside South, were also recognized for outstanding support of the foundation. Manotick News reporter Emma Jackson accepted an award for EMC Metroland’s ongoing coverage of organ donation issues.

Despite the new format, the foundation still found time to celebrate its volunteers and success stories from the past year. Manotick resident David Presley received an excellence award for his door-knocking campaign during the foundation’s annual March Drive. Presley’s wife Lyn accepted the award of his behalf, as David is currently recovering from his kidney transplant at the end of April. “Unfortunately he can’t be here, but fortunately he can’t be here,” Lyn quipped as she thanked fellow volunteers for their support as David recovers. The Presleys waited five years for a kidney transplant, and the news of an available kidney came out of the blue on April 29 after a weekend at the Alive to Strive fundraising run

dents are on some sort of dialysis, and another 550 attend the hospital’s progressive renal insufficiency (PRI) clinic. Between 150 and 175 residents are waiting for a new kidney. Jindal said he would like to see a small pilot project in Ottawa that teaches families and educators what a healthy lifestyle actually looks like, and how to promote that with children. “Despite all our marketing, all our publicity, nothing is working,” Jindal said. “Maybe we have to take a different approach.”

“When May 14th comes around I think about it but we don’t mark it.” Moira became ill in March, and Dossetor knew she was experiencing renal failure. At the time, transplants could only be done between identical twins - and it was only by chance that the girls’ mother mentioned Moira did indeed have a twin. “We had to test to prove we were identical,” remembered Johnson, who volunteered her kidney as soon as she knew a transplant was a possibility. “It was just a week before they determined there could be an operation.” But it wasn’t so simple. Because the girls were minors, they had to face a family court judge to determine if they were able to consent to donate and receive kidneys. By the time the judge had given his approval, it was May. Though the operation had never been done in Canada or anywhere else in the Commonwealth, Johnson said her mother didn’t want to go to the United States where the doctors had more experience. “She had faith in the doctors,” Johnson said. With good reason. The transplant was successful, and Moira lived for 29 years with Johnson’s kidney. “It worked out quite well,” Dossetor said. “She gave her sister 29 years of life.” Since the sisters shared so many genes, Johnson’s donat-

field. Jindal spoke passionately about the need for prevention at a very young age, before any risk factors for kidney disease have even set in. “We should not be talking about organ failure, because it’s too late,” he told the audience of about 40 people. “We should be talking about vascular health, which is the common link.” Jindal said genes and factors like gender and ethnicity play a minor role in kidney disease. While the genes are there, it’s our lifestyle choices that cause them to develop kidney disease, he said. Avoiding unhealthy habits from the outset is crucial, Jindal said, and parents and educators must play a key role in making sure children are eating well, getting enough exercise and learning how to lead a healthy lifestyle in the future. When bad habits are allowed to continue, blood vessels are damaged and we don’t even know it, Jindal explained. The damage occurs across the entire body. There are no tests to prove it, and as the damage gets worse it then starts to effect organs. By the time the organs are damaged, there is little we can do to reverse the problem, Jindal said. And the problem is getting worse. Kidney disease has tripled in recent years, Jindal said, and in Ottawa there are 200 new patients each year. About 1,000 Ottawa resi-

Time to confront concussions

T

he death of a Barrhaven teen after sustaining a severe head injury during a rugby game last week has highlighted the need for more education about concussions and brain

injuries. Rowan Stringer, 17, a John McCrae Secondary School student and the captain of her school rugby team, was tackled hard and hit her head and neck on the ground during a game on May 14. According to comments from her parents, Rowan had suffered two head injuries the week leading up to her fatal injury. The first time, she told her parents and took a pain reliever, the second time she only told her friends about the injury. We don’t know if these were concussions, but the family has authorized an autopsy to find out the factors leading to her death. Ottawa’s public school board is now taking a hard look at its safety policies to see if they can be improved and make sure players aren’t playing with injuries. But we can’t place the onus on just the coaches – it’s impossible for them to monitor every single hit. All of us – parents, family members, fellow players, properly armed with the knowledge about the dangers of head injuries can help prevent

athletes playing with concussions. The president of the Brain Injury Association of Canada has suggested, during an interview with the media, that Rowan might still be alive today if there was better awareness among coaches, players and the general public about the dangers of repeated concussions. The danger of suffering an injury, ranging from bumps and bruises to broken bones and head injuries, is a fact of life for all athletes. Nothing will change that. But athletes properly educated about the dangers of head injuries, can intelligently decide whether or not they are fit to participate in a game or competition. A big part of the problem is athletes don’t want to report head injuries because they’re afraid they will miss games. Education is a universal cure for poor decision making and a key component for preventing and treating sports-related concussions. Schools and sports associations should provide coaches, players and parents with the training and knowledge to both identify and treat concussions and head injuries. Research shows that if an athlete takes a hit to the head and suffers headaches afterwards, they may have suffered a concussion. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.

Public and private adjustment to playoff hockey mode

T

his time of year the news media, searching for ways to make hockey playoffs meaningful to the nonhockey population, focus on the fans, big crowds of them in matching colours, shaking towels in matching colours, yelling, dancing, or – as in Toronto – looking suddenly suicidal. The cameras prowl around the city looking for hockey fans being interesting – which is to say, noisy and excited. Naturally, the cameras find the public areas where noisy and excited people gather. In Ottawa, that would be the so-called Red Mile downtown. People with painted faces and colourful costumes are there. Along the Red Mile, and its equivalent in other cities, the cameras enter the bars, where people are all too happy to wave and shout and chant and look like newsworthy fans. But there are other, less newsworthy fans in our city. Perhaps they are the majority. Fortunately for them, the cameras do not seek them out. For these fans their fanaticism is private. They stay out of the public places. Their faces remain unpainted and they wear their normal clothes. Yet in their own way, they are making the adjustment to playoff mode.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town This requires changes in their behaviour patterns. Dinner, instead of being at the usual time, now must be earlier, to be over in time for the game. Or it must become a different kind of dinner, in order to be eaten off the lap in front of the TV set. Or it must be so late as to be verging on fashionable. Social life becomes more complicated. A dinner party scheduled weeks ago suddenly is found to coincide with the game. It can’t be shifted: that would be rude. So calculations have to be made. Are the guests fans? Would they mind eating at 5:30, before the game? Would they mind eating at 10 p.m., after the game? Can they persuaded to eat Chinese food off their laps, in front of the TV, with chopsticks? And if the guests are not hockey fans? Published weekly by:

There are people in the world who think about other things and are oblivious to what happens on the ice. They want to talk about Syria. How many times can you sneak away from the conversation during dinner to check the score? And what will be your excuse – stirring the dessert, making the coffee, a sudden nosebleed, another sudden nosebleed? And how to explain to your guests the sudden elation/depression you feel around 10 p.m? Depression could be Syria, I suppose. Another trial facing the private fan has to do with his/her children/grandchildren. They can scarcely be shielded from the fanaticism that is all around them. But they can’t be allowed to stay up until 10 on a school night either. As a consequence, a small but significant proportion of the fan base only sees the first period. But even that one period has its own challenges. The commercials have to be muted – which leads to the spectacle of silent video game monsters and Justin Trudeau in his undershirt. Further, a quick escape strategy has to be plotted to divert impressionable young eyes away from the fights. “Quick: Weather Network!” goes the cry whenever the gloves are dropped. In some games, the children see more low

pressure systems than slapshots. They must wonder why people paint their faces for this. Even among private fans, the pressure builds, the anguish and the ecstasy, the groans and cheers, and the tough part, at the end of it, is to explain to the children and grandchildren of private fans that it’s only a game, that you shouldn’t be mad at your team, you shouldn’t hate the other team and life goes on, win or lose. While you’re doing that, the screen fills with all the grieving painted faces in one city and all the hysterically happy painted faces in the other. Quick: Weather Network!

What women really want

I

was having coffee with a friend of mine the other day. She has a full-time job, three school-age children and a husband who also has a full-time job, an hour-long daily commute and chronic health problems. As one does in these situations, I asked, “how’s it going?� Always with a sense of humour, she said, it’s chaotic, but okay. “But the laundry! I need to hire someone to fold the laundry! My children are starting to think it’s normal to search for clean clothes in a mountain in the basement,� she lamented. I started thinking deeply on her laundry dilemma. If my friend were a man, would she be more likely to outsource the laundry? I suspect she would. In fact, earlier this year, when my husband was midway through his parental leave, he did just. He had stuff he wanted to do while on leave, like spend a few hours perusing his favourite stores, visit with friends, have a daily shower (and, ironically, renovate the laundry room). So he put the request out there: “What if we hire someone

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse a few mornings per week to look after the baby?� I was nervous at first and really unsure about the financial sustainability of it. It also seemed incredibly indulgent, considering we were both home. But five months in, I realize it’s amazing to have an extra pair of hands on deck. In fact, I’m not sure how I ever stayed home full-time with my boys when they were babies and managed everything on my own. (Anyone with a toddler knows that cleaning up after their self-feeding meals alone is a full-time job -never mind the fact that a baby seems to triple the household laundry at minimum). It made me think: “leave it to a man to come up with a practical solution to buy a few hours of free time each week, so that, you know, he could have a life as well as look after

a baby full-time.� Yes, I’m gender stereotyping here. But most stereotypes are grounded in some version of the truth. And the reality is that women, especially where children are concerned, too often fail to consider themselves first. I look around at the women I know and regardless of whether they’re home fulltime or trying to simultaneously work outside the home and look after things on the domestic front, it seems everyone is simply doing too much. Last year, American academic Anne-Marie Slaughter caused a stir with her article in The Atlantic, and especially its title, “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All.� But I’m wondering why anyone would want to have it all -- well, at least, the responsibility of it all. It’s

incredibly freeing to delegate and outsource tasks, whether that’s hiring someone to throw dinner in the slow-cooker and get the laundry into the drawers each day, or getting an accountant to do your taxes. With the recent release of Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, there is a new mainstream discussion emerging on the future of feminism. The co-authors of The New Girls’ Network recently noted in a Harvard Business Review blog much of this new discussion is focused on “executive feminism,� primarily, how to get more women into top roles of organizations. And while this is an essential conversation to be having, particularly pushing cultural change in organizations to better develop women into top roles, it’s also necessary to continue empowering women across the board. Perhaps the best place to start is by encouraging women to be a bit more selfish. Let’s scrap the ideologies that cause women to believe they are solely responsible for rearing the perfect child. Let’s start “thinking like men� and putting ourselves first so we can be healthier, stronger and offer a well-rounded perspective to our kids. It’s empowering and at the end of the day, I think it’s what women really want.

Targeted rezonings appease communities City’s first zoning consistency projects set the stage for broader infill review Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

A rezoning to allow this homes off Colonel By Drive in Old Ottawa South to be replaced with a larger house kicked off a review of the area’s zoning. to become home to more residents, which aligns with the city’s intensification goals, while encouraging the existing homes and the neighbourhood character to be retained. “It would be a disservice to those big old homes to not allow them to change with the times,” Miguelez said. The R3 zone allows for homes to be converted to contain up to four dwellings, up to 10 residents in a group home or retirement home, a duplex, townhome or semi-detached dwelling, a home-based business or diplomatic mission. Residents who live in the homes along the stretch said they are less concerned about whether people live in townhomes or semi-detached dwellings and more concerned about the height of the homes and ensuring their scale is compatible with neighbouring dwellings. It also means any additions to homes would have to be in the rear of the house and smaller in scale, so they aren’t visible from the street. That concerned a couple of residents, including Wallace Dowswell, who added that overall he was happy.

“This will reduce the incentive to demolish and rebuild,” he said. “We’re allowing change, but controlled change.” Changing the zoning for the area would also be a bad idea because it would mean several of the homes would no longer conform to the area’s zoning – something the city calls “non-conforming rights.” The city tries to avoid that because it creates a tangled mess for homeowners to acquire insurance if the home is sold to a new owner and can therefore make homes difficult to sell. There is one additional restriction that would apply to three or four properties that have lots larger than 40 metres deep. Those property owners would face a restriction aimed at limiting how far back into the lot – and therefore how large – a home or addition could be. The Colonel By and Greenbank zoning consistency changes will be presented to the city’s planning committee for approval on June 25. The changes will be accompanied by a related but smaller review of three properties in Knoxdale-Merivale Ward: 171, 173 and 175 Greenbank Rd. That review was initiated following

EMC news - An effort to strike a balance between protecting community character and maintaining property owners’ rights in Old Ottawa South will set the stage for zoning reviews across the city. The first two projects for the city’s new zoning consistency team will be used as a test case to set the direction for a review of infill homes in the city’s urban neighbourhoods, set to kick off next month, said city planner Alain Miguelez, the program manager of intensification and zoning. In Old Ottawa South, a contentious plan to rezone a property at 9 Rosedale Ave. sparked a need to look at what types of buildings should be allowed to be constructed along the Rideau Canal between Bank Street and Bronson Avenue. Infill is now a significant trend and a “happy predicament” for the city, Miguelez said. The zoning reviews for Colonel By Drive and a second pilot project review of three properties on Greenbank Road will help the city’s planning department frame how it tackles the issues on a larger scale as part of the Phase 2 infill

study, Miguelez said. When it comes to Colonel By, a planning consultant found it wouldn’t do much good to downzone the area to allow less density or fewer types of homes. Instead, a planning consultant hired by the city is recommending keeping the zoning but adding a height limit and a restrictive heritage overlay, which requires homes to be built in a compatible manner if they are demolished or destroyed by something like fire. It’s the same type of tool used to guide homebuilding on the other side of the canal, on Queen Elizabeth Drive. Height limits would drop from 11 metres to nine metres, which would still allow for a three-storey home, said Nancy Meloshe, the planning consultant the city hired for the project. Only three of the existing 39 homes along that stretch are taller than nine metres. The mix of housing styles is something residents really value, and a couple people wanted to ensure the new restrictions wouldn’t prevent the construction of homes in modern architectural styles. Miguelez said keeping the more lenient zoning will allow the area

the approval of a zoning amendment for 149-153 Greenbank Rd. to permit the construction of a five-storey apartment building comprising 61 units. Meloshe found that the properties are ripe for more intense development and is recommending boosting the building height limit from 10 m to 15 m, prohibiting a few uses including community centre or a drivethrough and increasing the size of the backyard. The property owners are in agreement and Meloshe expects them to bring forward a plan for a retirement residence. Miguelez said what his team learned during the Colonel By zoning discussion could be applied to a broader swath of Old Ottawa South. That could come up during Phase 2 of the city’s small-scale infill homes review, which is getting underway this month and will be the topic of a public meeting in June. But Meloshe said the homes along Colonel By are distinct from the rest of the neighbourhood. “It struck us as interesting that the properties along Colonel By are different in terms of the character of the houses, the stateliness of the houses and the size of the properties,” she said.

Ottawa Hospital campaign begins for dermatology centre steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - After a long, bleak winter, many Ottawans are now content to bask in the warm rays of a bright sun. While vitamin D is a wonderful thing, each year many Canadians find themselves diagnosed with skin cancer, even those who take precautions and fall outside of the common age range for the affliction. The Ottawa Hospital is hoping to become a leader in treating the many forms of skin cancer by combining all dermatology services into one location at its Civic Campus. The hospital plans to establish a melanoma rapid diagnosis and management clinic, as well as a psoriasis systemic therapy clinic, in order to reduce wait times for patients. To realize this vision, the hospital is embarking on a $3 million fundraising campaign. It kicked off the initiative with a May 16 media tour of the Parkdale Clinic’s Mohs surgical unit, guided by doctors Jim Walker and Jillian Macdonald of the Ottawa Hospital’s admittedly cramped dermatology unit. “With the new Dermatology Centre of Excellence, this area would be doubled in size,� said Walker, adding, “The lab would be doubled (in size) and we’d increased from three to five surgery rooms, and increase our operation from three days a

week to five days a week.� Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is serving as honorary campaign chairman for the initiative. His involvement stems from personal experience: Watson has twice been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer. The first diagnosis came, oddly enough, during a health exhibition at Queen’s Park while he was serving as an MPP. “I’m very appreciative of the fact my skin cancer was caught relatively soon, but sadly there are many people in our community that don’t have that early detection and as a result are not as fortunate as I am,� said Watson. “We’re blessed in Ottawa to have some great physicians, great scientists and researchers, but we need more capacity. We know that with an aging population and a growing population, plus everything from the depletion of the ozone layer and its impact on skin, that the problem will get worse before it gets better.� Watson served as a test subject while Macdonald demonstrated a routine skin exam, where doctors look for suspicious cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions. Like all cancers, early detection ensures the best possible outcome for patients. Often thought of as a worry for middle aged people and the elderly, skin cancer is fickle and doesn’t follow rigid bound-

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is given a skin exam by Dr. Jillian Macdonald at the Ottawa Hospital’s dermatology unit on May 16, as Dr. Jim Walker looks on. The hospital is launching a campaign to raise $3 million to fund a new, comprehensive dermatology centre at the Civic Campus. aries. Ottawa resident Jessica Trotto was on hand to relate her experience with skin cancer. Trotto, a self-described “country bumpkin� who loves the sun and was a past user of tanning beds, was diagnosed with a cancerous lesion near her eye while still in her early 30s. Now 36, Trotto said she was shocked when the diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma was hand-

ed down. While helpful physicians at the hospital guided her through the process, the month-and-ahalf wait to rid her body of the cancer drew out her fear. “The wait is terrifying. I would have nightmares of the skin cancer growing overnight,� said Trotto. “It’s imperative to reduce those wait times and get those people in as soon as possible.�

City reveals design for Arts Court ‘civic landmark’ Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city hopes adding an iconic new art gallery and a tower to Arts Court will make the historic site into a “people place.” The current hub of arts in Ottawa is set to expand next year and designs for the new buildings to be added to the complex were presented at a community meeting on May 14. “We want to make it a place of civic pride – not just arts groups camped out in the former courthouse,” said Barry Padolsky, one of the architects hired by the city to work on the project. The $40.5-million expansion will include a large addition to the existing Arts Court building – a heritage complex that used to be home to the courthouse and registry office. The second architect the city hired for the project, Mitchell Hall, said the new Ottawa Art Gallery portion would be a 3,260 square-metre “elegant box” tucked in along the existing northsouth stone wall that divides the site. The city is looking at having the gallery building serve as a billboard for art, perhaps using projection or a digital sign, Hall said. A 250-seat screening room, a café and a black-box theatre on Waller Street for the University of Ottawa is also part of the concept.

Open space, seating areas and sculpture courts would buffer the new buildings along Daly Avenue, leading into the main entrance, and along Waller. The adjacent former jailhouse is now a privately-owned hostel and not up for redevelopment. In addition, the city is hoping to make $3.5 million to put towards the project by selling the air rights for a 23-storey tower at the corner of Waller Street and Daly Avenue. It could become a hotel, condo tower, offices, or perhaps even a residence for the University of Ottawa. “It’s too early to tell” what the tower could become, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. He didn’t have a preference, but he is keen on ensuring the tower’s use and branding are compatible with the theme of the arts complex. Padolsky and Hall have offered a conceptual design for the tower, but it will be up to the winner bidder to create their own concept for the tower. Padolsky and Hall can’t be on that design team, but they will serve as the city’s “advocate architects” to ensure the tower’s design fits into the concept for the block. The existing Arts Court buildings wouldn’t change much, but the space would be repurposed to allow current tenants like SAW and Art Engine to expand.

Submitted

A 23-storey privately owned tower and a box-shaped Ottawa Art Gallery are the most striking features in the city’s Arts Court expansion. The designs were presented at a public meeting on May 14. There would be a change to level out SAW Gallery’s space to make it more accessible by opening out to the courtyard on Nicholas, instead of having a staircase. After all the rezonings and approvals are complete, hopefully in the fall, the project will go to tender to find a builder and a buyer for the tower air rights, Padolsky said. A builder is expected to be selected and

construction is to begin in the spring or summer of 2014. It would be completed by 2016, Padolsky said. The tender can’t go out until the city confirms $9 million in funding from the federal government. But the delay lies with the city, not the federal government, said project manager Lauren Reeves. “That’s not a delay on their part,” she said. “It was part of our design

process.” The design went through many consultation phases with stakeholders, groups who use space at Arts Court. It took longer than the city expected, Reeves said, and that delayed when the city could submit its final funding application to the federal government. In 2011, the city approved spending $36.14 million on the expansion.

EMC news - A previously dismissed plan to move a clutch of heritage homes along Sussex Drive in order to save them from being demolished as part of a road widening is back on the books. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury confirmed the city is in talks with the National Capital Commission to move two homes and rowhouse along a curved section of Sussex between Cathcart and Bolton streets back away from the road to ensure they won’t have to be demolished when the road is widened over the next two years. The city’s planning committee shocked even heritage advocates last October by unanimously rejecting a plan to demolish two heritage homes on Sussex Drive. The houses, one of which was home to former governor general Adrianne Clarkson during her childhood, were proposed to be demolished as part of a project to widen the road into a boulevard to complete the NCC’s Mile of History section of the ceremonial Confederation Boulevard. The plan to move the homes, which was previously rejected as too expensive, was kept under wraps until the NCC began informing tenants living in the three affected homes, Fleury said. “Even I’m in a bit of the dark on it,” he said. Fleury said he asked to been briefed on the plans after he heard about it from residents and it is his understanding that the NCC will make an application to the city’s planning committee to move the homes farther back on the lot, away from the street. Members of the Lowertown Community Association were frustrated by the lack of information during a meeting on May 13.

Deputy city manager Nancy Schepers and a group of city officials met with Aubin on May 16 to update him on the plans. The city has committed to holding a special community meeting about local infrastructure projects – including Sussex – as soon as possible, Fleury said. The plan is to present the proposal to move the homes to the built heritage subcommittee on June 13 and planning committee on June 25, according to Fleury. An emailed statement from city spokesperson Andrea Ruttan that was attributed to building and construction manager Ziad Ghadban said the city and NCC are working together to finalize the road’s design. “The design and construction approaches … will incorporate the on site relocation of the buildings at 273 and 275-279 Sussex Dr. The city and NCC staff will be coming forward with an application to secure the required approvals to do so,” the email reads. Aubin said the news is a “bittersweet victory” because the community fought hard for almost two years to save the homes. The NCC and city wasted a lot of time and resources before coming to a solution the community asked for all along, Aubin said. Last fall, heritage advocates questioned why the city and NCC didn’t recommend the option of moving the homes. The NCC’s project manager, Richard Daigneault, said that option was considered, but removing the buildings wouldn’t have a significant enough impact to warrant the cost. The cost to move the buildings was estimated at about $1.15 million. The NCC argued the rents charged to tenants in the buildings were not high enough to recoup that cost within a reasonable timeframe. The city and NCC will share the cost, but Fleury said the city will likely pay the ma-

jority of the cost to move the homes since the road widening is a city-initiated project. Last fall, the transportation committee approved the $30 million road project, which includes adding bicycle lanes in both directions and widening the sidewalks by up to three metres. City staff said the construction project is needed to straighten out the curve and improve the road’s safety for both motorist and cyclists. But that reasoning did resonate with members of the city’s planning committee, who roundly rejected the plan and called on staff and the NCC to come up with a more creative solution. Council also rejected the demolition on Oct. 24, 2012. At the time, Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs was the most passionate councillor to argue against the demolitions. She decried a plan to mark Canada’s history that requires the demolition of home representing a compelling national story: a young refugee girl who would eventually move down the street to Rideau Hall to serve as our head of state. “Who is drinking whose Kool-Aid?” she asked. Last fall, Heritage Ottawa president Leslie Maitland said retaining the homes, especially 277 Sussex Dr., would “speak eloquently to the humble roots of our country.” “The history of Ottawa is more than embassies,” she said. A spokesman for the NCC declined to talk about a potential plan to move its homes and deferred questions to the city. “We are working together on this,” said NCC spokesman Jean Wolff. “At this point, the planning stage, there is no point in talking about the homes in particular.” The project will go to tender by the end of May and construction should begin this summer and continue through next year.

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean Leitrim minor Hockey President I would like to thank outgoing Leitrim Minor Hockey Association (LMHA) President Dominic Giglietta for his years of service to Leitrim Minor Hockey. Dominic played an integral part in getting LMHA out of financial ruin and leading them to its healthy financial position today. He played an important role in leading fundraising initiatives to help the association stay alive during difficult times. From myself, all of the parents, volunteers and players from the LMHA, we thank you Dominic for your years of service. Photos by Brier Dodge/Metroland

Zoning Amendment for 4450 LimebAnk roAd City Council has passed a zoning bylaw amendment for 4450 Limebank Road. The subject property is located on the west side of Limebank Road between Spratt Road and Earl Armstrong Road adjacent to the new commercial plaza. The amendment will allow the construction of approximately 20 townhomes. This application is consistent with the Riverside South Community Design Plan (CDP). The CDP serves to identify the future growth in the area, including lands that are designated for future residential, commercial, and institutional development. The zoning application and the Riverside South CDP are available for your review at www.stevedesroches.ca. 15tH AnnuAL 9-1-1 cHiLdren’s AcHievement AwArds It was my pleasure to join my City Council colleagues and Mayor Jim Watson recently to help recognize children who use the 9-1-1 service effectively in a crisis situation at the 15th Annual 9-1-1 Children’s Achievement Awards. I was happy to be able to present a certificate of recognition to Colvin O’Driscoll, a Grade 8 student who lives in my ward, for his brave actions in calling 9-1-1 to assist his mother. He was clear and specific and stayed by his mother’s side until paramedics arrived. I would like to congratulate Colvin again for his quick thinking and brave efforts. cLeAning uP tHe cAPitAL I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the City of Ottawa’s 2013 Spring Clean the Capital campaign.

City OKs home on New Edinburgh lane Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - New Edinburgh residents are calling the city’s decision to allow a new home to be built on a laneway the “dismantling” of an important heritage district. The city’s planning committee approved severing an L-shaped lot into two lots, as well as the construction of a home on the new lot facing River Lane. It will be the first home built facing a lane, and with access from the lane, since the area was designated as a heritage conservation district in 2001. “We are seeing that intensification is trumping the heritage goals,” said New Edinburgh resident Richard Palmer, who called the proposal “the systematic dismantling of Ottawa’s flagship heritage district. “These are big losses in such a small district like New Edinburgh,” he said. Planning committee chairman Coun. Pete Hume said he had trouble following Palmer’s arguments. “You’re going to have to help me here. There is a lot of access on the lane,” Hume said. “What’s the problem with building on the lane, other than you live next door? “I am having trouble understanding how that is the lynchpin that de-

stroys heritage.” David Sachs, president of the New Edinburgh Community Alliance, emphasized that one house might not be the lynchpin, but the fact that it will set the precedent for future development, especially on laneways. “To say there is no force of precedent here is misleading,” Sachs said. “This thing has fantastic potential for forward momentum.” Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, who represents the area, said he was completely opposed to the lot severance and approval to build a new home. “When you look at this in a microcosm you can say it’s fine, but it’s not a microcosm,” he said. “This will spark more development on the lane and it’s not serviced.” Clark said he is concerned that “the system is broken” and that the city is making decisions based on outdated heritage guidelines. He called on city staff to update the 2001 heritage conservation district guidelines to 2005 standards. The planning committee decided to heed his wishes and directed staff to update the heritage district plan and address the question of how new infill can be appropriately integrated into the district, especially on lanes. As part of the application for the new home, city staff recommended

changing the laneway’s designation to “improved” status because it is a paved laneway that the city already maintains by snowplowing and collecting garbage and recycling there. City planner Andrew McCreight said the new home falls within the parameters for the existing zoning and size of homes in the district, expect the lot is slightly smaller. It could be built with access from the street off Queen Victoria Street, if the city wanted to avoid allowing laneway access. But that would mean building a much longer driveway and cutting down a mature tree, McCreight said, so the laneway access makes more sense. Sarah Millar Martin, a planner from FoTenn who was hired by the applicant, said the L-shaped lot provides a “unique opportunity” to build an infill home – a rarity in New Edinburgh. “Laneway living has its challenges, but it is sought after,” Millar Martin said.

This site plan shows the existing home at the bottom and the half of the L-shaped lot that will contain a new home at the top. Doyle Homes and FoTenn Planning and Urban Design/Submitted

‘Tri-party’ meetings keep Minto, Manotick in the loop Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Minto has agreed to meet regularly with Manotick groups to ensure everyone is chasing the same goals. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt has organized the bi-monthly meetings, which will bring councillor, community and developer into the same room. He said the purpose of the meetings is to keep the lines of communication open. “The big thing is to make sure everyone is on the same page and learning things at the same time,” Moffatt said. “We want to make sure the communication is good as we move forward with the first phase (of de-

velopment) and other phases.” Minto is currently building the first phase of a large housing development southwest of the village core, off Manotick Main Street.

Parks and Recreation Association will meet every second month to discuss concerns, share information and work together on community projects.

The big thing is to make sure everyone is on the same page and learning things at the same time. Scott Moffatt Councillor

The first three families will move in at the end of the year, with more coming in early 2014. Along with Moffatt, representatives from Minto, the Manotick Village and Community Association, the BIA and the Manotick Culture,

“We want to make sure we all have visions that align and everything connects,” Moffatt said. “It’s just a matter of keeping tabs on the small things that sometimes might also get overlooked.” Susan Murphy, vice president of

development with Minto Communities, said Minto is open to this kind of co-operation because it keeps the developer in the loop. “Its more to have a vehicle to communicate in terms of activities that are happening with the BIA and the community associations so there’s better communication and co-operation,” Murphy said. For example, Minto is now aware of the upcoming Dickinson Days celebration on the first weekend in June, and can participate more fully, Murphy said. Klaus Beltzner, president of the Manotick Village and Community Association, hopes the meetings can go beyond information sharing and lead to real deliverables on projects of “mutual interest” such as better

pathway connections, roads, cycling infrastructure and crosswalks. “I like the idea of working with shared ideas and plans rather than have these evolve independently and then afterwards try to stitch things together,” Beltzner said in an email. “It will be an opportunity for the community and Minto work together on enhancing and connecting neighbourhoods and the village.” The first meeting was held in April. The group will meet again in June.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 23, 2013

Michelle Nash/Metroland

More than 100 people came out for Action Sandy Hill’s annual general meeting on May 16, with many of them putting their name forward to join the board of directors.

Plans change for temporary park at Rideau and Charlotte Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - At the recent Sandy Hill meeting, residents strongly opposed a developer’s proposal to reconsider earlier plans to establish a temporary park at a vacant lot in the neighbourhood. While temporary fencing and gravel paths currently serve as the only indication property owners Richcraft Group have plans for the site at the corner of Rideau and Charlotte streets, there was more evidence of its significance at the May 16 meeting. Discussion at Action Sandy Hill’s annual general meeting swirled around news that the plans for the lot had changed and Richcraft is now seeking to set up a sales centre in addition to the small temporary park. “Let’s hold them to their agreement,” said Chad Rollins, a resident at the meeting, referring to Richcraft’s proposal to demolish the buildings at 588 and 592 Rideau Street and 165 Charlotte St. made back in April 2012, which included plans to host a city-leased park there for at least three years. The Sandy Hill community was in favour of temporary park plan. The original goal was for the buildings to be demolished and the park built by October 2012. Now the proposed $70,000 park is scheduled to be completed by July 1, but Richcraft now wants to alter its plans, with preliminary sketches showing four parking spots and a sales office taking up approximately one-third of

the site. The new plans promise a smaller park that would stay in place for a longer period of time, for a total of seven years on the site. According to Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, Richcraft said it would spend more on the park, upwards to $100,000. But residents at the meeting indicated they were not willing to discuss the issue and wanted to hold the developer to its original agreement. Rollins proposed a motion that members of the community vote to keep Richcraft to its word. “Let’s tell them we want a park for three years,” he said. Association president Christopher Collmorgen agreed and brought forward a motion to that effect at the meeting. Fleury told the crowd of more than 150 concerned residents that the important thing is to hear from the developers. “There were no visuals, no presentation, it’s important to meet with the developer,” Fleury said the following morning. “I want a park, that’s what I worked for,” he said. The councillor said he will work with the association and Richcraft to host a public meeting on the issue as soon as possible and added he hopes that as many residents who came out to the meeting to oppose the issue would also attend the meeting with the developer. “There are other elements that need to be addressed,” Fleury said. Fleury said by shutting out the developer and sticking to

the original plans, it raises the possibility that in three years Richcraft could bulldoze the park to put up a parking lot and sales office. “I have no problem with the outcome that took place last night, but I do have a problem with the process,” Fleury said. Kevin Yemm of Richcraft has been communicating with the community about this issue. According to Yemm, he has reached out to Fleury’s office and Collmorgen to discuss the change to plans and this option would give more animation to park, including bringing electricity for groups to be able to host larger events. “We have to balance the interest of both the owner and the community,” Yemm said. “I personally think (the proposal) does. What we offered to ASH, the councillor and the city is what we think is, not thinking of fairness, but it’s about maximizing our opportunity and the community’s. Everybody can gain from this.” Collmorgen said the community spoke out in large numbers against the park at the meeting, which is great, but those people need to attend the consultation. “There is value in everyone coming out to a public consultation in the same amount of large numbers to stand their ground and let Richcraft understand how important it is to the community for the company to stand by its word,” Collmorgen. Yemm said that as the land is privately owned, the owner has the right to change its plans for a development.

Halvorsen brings elite experiences to Ottawa Race Weekend Steve Newman

steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC sports - Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend race director John Halvorsen knows everyone can’t be a worldclass runner, but the two-time Olympian still wants thousands of runners to have an elite experience during the May 25 and 26 extravaganza. And that’s a big deal, in more ways than one. After all, an Ottawa Race Weekend record 42,573 runners participated in 2012, making it Canada’s largest multi-distance race event. Injury and Achilles tendon surgery prevented Halvorsen’s qualification for a third Olympic Games in 1996, but he was an icon on the North American running scene in the 1980s and 1990s, after coming to Ottawa from his native Norway as a young teenager when his dad took a job at the Norwegian embassy. His parents have long since returned to Norway, but Halvorsen remains in the National Capital area despite retaining his Norwegian citizenship. When he first arrived here,

teachers at Sir Robert Borden High School allowed him to use a dictionary to find certain words, but his learning curve was quick and Canada soon became his new and comfortable home. He went on to earn his engineering degree and MBA at the University of Ottawa, and to win two Canadian club and five Canadian interuniversity cross-country championships, in addition to racing in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games. His best Olympic placing was 16th in the 10,000 metres in Seoul, while four years later he ran faster to place 19th in the same event in Barcelona, Spain. The 5-foot-8, 130-pound runner was also named Runner’s World male road racer of the year in 1989. Now about 170 pounds, the 46-year-old married father of three youngsters, ages 14, 12 and 10, remains physically active and connected to the sports community in the National Capital area. Living just across the Ottawa River in Kingsmere, Que., he coaches at the local Nakkertok cross-country ski club, skis, cycles and contin-

ues to run. “I had a good run at running for years, and it was a great experience,” says Halvorsen, though convinced he could have run faster. For 10,000 metres on the track, he ran a world-class time of 27 minutes 43 seconds. “I know I could have better times, because my best times were not when I was in top shape,” says Halvorsen. After working 18 years in Ottawa’s high-tech industry, primarily in marketing and product management, he became Tamarack Ottawa Race weekend’s new full-time race director in late January. Full-time staff

Halvorsen works with five other full-time staff, the board of directors, a volunteer race committee and numerous other volunteers. The other full-time staff are communications director Susan Marsh, operations manager Joe DuVall, event manager Al Macartney and assistant operations manager Ryan Cameron. See RACE, page 23

OTTAWA RACE WEEKEND

Race weekend will generate $27 million in Ottawa region One of the part-time staffers is long-time race director Jim Robinson, who spearheaded the evolution of Ottawa Race Weekend into one of the most-talked-about running weekends in North America. “Honorary everything,” says Halvorsen of the retired Robinson, who now works as a part-time advisor for Ottawa Race Weekend. Halvorsen became involved with the organization in 1999 and went on to hold positions that include parttime race director and chairman of the Run Ottawa board of directors. No longer just about a marathon, as the event was when it began in the early 1970s, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is home to the marathon, half-marathon, 10K, 5K, 2K and kids 1K. The marathon will feature a record of more than 6,200 runners this year, but the 10K and half-marathon will each attract the biggest fields, of more than 11,000. Sponsorship plus entry fees create an annual Ottawa Race Weekend budget of $2.8 million, including $400,000 for the elite racers. “Our primary focus, from a time and budget perspective, is organizing the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend because that’s the main event that draws the substantial portion of our revenues … but we also have other events,” says Halvorsen. The budget also accommodates organization of several Run Ottawa races during the year, including informal Beaver Chase trail runs, the Army Run which may attract more than 20,000 runners this September, the Jim Howe memorial, January’s Richmond road race, and Kanata’s Canada Day road races with 10K-, 5K-, 1.2K- and 100 metre-races. As race director, Halvorsen says he’s called on for leadership, accounting and general management. For this month’s race weekend, Halvorsen sees his role as providing more leadership and vision: “Obviously, we’ve been around for a long time, so we’re not talking about reinventing the wheel, but it’s messaging. Sponsorship is another huge role.” He also remains involved with organizational details, like working with its supplier on course signs and

structures. “We’re talking six-figure costs here, just for structures and signage,” says Halvorsen. Logistics, including those involving security, are also part of the pie. SECURITY

Security remains an important part of running the race weekend, a concern punctuated by last month’s bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon. “Our event now is public enough that we have to expect it’s possible, whether it’s an emergency of this nature (with bombs) or an emergency of lesser nature that still needs some thought process to deal with it,” says Halvorsen. For the first time, Ottawa Race Weekend officials and public responders will take part in a table-top emergency exercise, so people know how to respond if there’s an extreme emergency. “We’re probably unique in the sense that we have an on-site medical team that can address a ton of medical issues,” says Halvorsen. That weekend team consists of 40 doctors and 150 nurses from the Ottawa Hospital. The event also features ski patrol members on bikes and roving patrols, who pick up runners in trouble and work in collaboration with Ottawa and Gatineau paramed-

ics, firefighters and police. There will also be signs reminding Ottawa Race Weekend participants not to leave bags unattended. There may also be additional security at baggage checks. Meanwhile, The Tamarack Race Weekend staff continue to look for efficiencies in its operations. “We try to reuse, but we also try to improve. In the perfect world, we would do things different, but we don’t live in a perfect world,” says Halvorsen. “We can’t close any road we want because of traffic impact. Our approach is that we see where we’d like to be. We’ve seen what the main races are like, either with Jim (Robinson) travelling to them or my running experience, so we ask how we can get there. “An example is the marathon, which was a two-loop course for years. Both Jim and I knew no world-class marathon has a two-loop course, it just doesn’t happen, unless you’re talking the Olympics, and then it doesn’t matter because you’re only talking 60 runners. “Second of all, we have a city with a lot of tourist attractions. We are still the capital of Canada. We have a lot of national and regional monuments, whether it’s a war museum, the art gallery or Parliament Hill. So we said to ourselves, how can

R0012115209

we make a course that incorporates as much of that as possible, still living in the context of traffic difficulties, construction, and all that kind of stuff.” BIG ECONOMIC IMPACT

Meanwhile, Halvorsen and the race weekend team continue to strive to make the course attractive to out-of-town runners, which make up about 40 per cent of entrants. Ottawa Race Weekend also generates an economic impact of $27 million in the region. That impact is similar to what the region has experienced for such prominent events as the Juno Awards and the National Hockey League All-Star Game. “Having reached that point now, and having city and NCC (National Capital Commission) officials understand that, has been helpful for obvious reasons. The support we get now (from the city) is quite good,” says Halvorsen. “There are still some challenges once in a while, but that’s nothing unusual. “Our biggest beef (is the lack of) government grants,” adds Halvorsen. “We’re either classified as a charity, which we are not, or as a sporting event, which apparently doesn’t “get any funding, unlike other festivals that are arts-related that get funding.

We’ve almost yet to receive anything.” Meanwhile, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend can boast about being home to the largest running expo event in Canada, with more than 100 vendors for the Thursday-throughSaturday event. On the pavement, the race schedule Saturday has the 2k at 4 p.m., 5K at 5 p.m., and 10K at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday is home to the marathon (the only Ottawa Race Weekend event with more male entrants), kids marathon (in which participants run their marathon’s last kilometre after doing the equivalent of 41 kilometres of exercise) and half-marathon. Those start times are 7, 8 and 9 a.m. respectively. Halvorsen loves to watch the competitive elite races, but he says many non-elites also play a special role in race weekend. For example, the race director says it’s emotional seeing average runners so excited while finishing their first marathon or half-marathon, with friends and other spectators on hand. “The emotion at the finish line can be huge,” says Halvorsen. “It’s rewarding to know you played a role in that, and they’re excited and happy to do the event that you created.”

OTTAWA RACE WEEKEND

Connected to your community

Elite runners in it to win Brier Dodge

she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go too fast and run out of energy. Maguire, 46, is used to running longer distances, so she has to make sure she uses all the gas in her tank and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save too much energy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a five, I just go. Go fast, and hold it,â&#x20AC;? Larocque said. Maguire said the most common mistake of less experienced runners is they start too fast, and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep the pace for the majority of the race. Larocque said many runners also skip the warm up, and head straight to the start line.

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - Every year at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, thousands of runners pack the start area, anxious to run a five or 10 kilometre race, many with just the goal of completing the event. Leah Larocque isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one of them. Last year, her aim wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just to finish, or place in the top half of the runners. Laroque wanted to win - a goal she accomplished, running five kilometres in under 18 minutes. Her final time was 17 minutes, 36 seconds. The race weekend average time for the five kilometre event was 35 minutes and 10 seconds. This year, Larocque and her training partner, Liz Maguire, a former marathoner, are going to tackle the 10-kilometre race, aiming to run in the 37 to 38 minute range. Aiming for a specific time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a competitive one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; means pacing yourself, said Larocque and Maguire. Larocque, 24, runs a shorter distance, the five kilometre race, so she has to make sure

ELITE

The start line experience is different for these two Ottawa runners because they are in the elite category. Manny Rodrigues, elite athlete coordinator for the Ottawa Race Weekend, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set to have about 120 elite athletes competing between the 10 kilometre race and the marathon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very different mentality,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people in the back are happy to compete. The people in the front

are looking for a specific time or position. They make their money this way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their bread and butter.â&#x20AC;? Rodrigues accommodates Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top athletes into the elite category, but also recruits runners from all across the world, dealing with both applications and the agents of the athletes heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to recruit. Top runners arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just competing for a chance at prize money, but are paid to come to Ottawa and compete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone like Geoffrey Mutai, who was IAAF runner of the year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so the guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number one in the world for road racing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay him well, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not coming,â&#x20AC;? Rodrigues said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the recreational athlete to be involved in a race that has elite athletes, it has a lot more hype, it has a lot more news stories, a lot more crowds.â&#x20AC;? Mutai, a Kenyan, will be back again this year competing in the 10 kilometre race, alongside a handful of international runners, who are all capable of running the race in under 28 minutes.

Training key to preparation Earn Extra Money! Continued from page 24

Larocque and Maguire aren’t getting paid the big bucks to run in the race, but the elite status will be an improvement, especially for Larocque because the five-kilometre race doesn’t have an elite start area. Elite runners start ahead of the rest of the pack. This prevents them from getting stuck behind a crowd of runners going at a significantly slower pace in a race where seconds lost can quickly add up. They also pick up race kits in different areas so they don’t need to deal with crowds. Rodrigues started lining up athletes months ago, as top elite runners will only do two or three marathons a year. He’s also accommodating the majority of Canada’s top marathoners, as the race weekend also acts as the marathon national championship. TRAINING

While many recreation runners will slowly work up to their race distance, running the full distance only on race day, competitive runners are running that, if not longer, on a regular

basis. Elite marathon runners can log upwards of 200 kilometres a week, Rodriques said, which can work out to about five marathons a week. Maguire and Larocque run 16 to 18 kilometres for their long runs, with two or three interval running workouts mixed in through the week, and biking and swimming for cross training. The week of the race, the routine stays pretty close to normal, with a shorter long run and easier intervals. The international elite runners arrive a couple of days before the event, enough time to acclimatize, but not enough to lose the benefits of altitude training if it’s part of their routine. Rodriques said the competitive runners are a lot more focused on nutrition, monitoring everything that goes into their bodies, the rest before the race, and getting in a good warm up prior to the race. Marathon world record holder Patrick Makau, who ran the 10 kilometre race in Ottawa a couple of years ago, goes vegetarian the evening before a race.

“Meat won’t process, and therefore its unnecessary weight,” Rodrigues said. “So that’s the sort of level you’re looking at – they’re worried (about) every little ounce that’s going to be (there) at the start line.” Maguire said she sticks with what works during training, sticking with what works.

GOALS

Last year, Maguire – who qualifies for the master’s division, but is still competitive in the open – was 11th in the women’s 10 kilometre race. This year, the Riverside South mother will try and shave off some time to place even higher. It will be the first year that Larocque competes in the 10 kilometre event, but she hopes to run a time that would have put her among the top ten female runners last year. These race weekend veterans’ tips for new runners? “Don’t go too fast and enjoy it,” Maguire said. “Build off people who are cheering for you, but if there’s something left – giver,” Larocque said. “You’re going to be tired regardless.”

A Hearing Solution for You! will never limit their hearing device options as others do” says Rosanne. ‘’We remain independent so that all makes and models may be sold and serviced.’’ This enables Hearing Solutions Clinic to better meet your unique hearing needs, and at a competitive price because Hearing Solutions Clinic doesn’t have the enormous overhead of larger clinics nor does it have investors to please. Rosanne further distinguishes herself from the other clinics by solely hiring professionals that are regulated and hold the highest level of education in the hearing healthcare field. There are no Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Solutions Clinic, only Audiologists who are diligent at keeping the clinic up-to-date in technology and practice. They are qualified to service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WSIB, DVA, ACSD, etc). In addition, Rosanne protects the special quality of her clinic by ensuring that all employees share the core values, beliefs and principles that created Hearing Solutions Clinic over a decade ago. Consequently, you receive the service of professionals who are not only top in their field, but who pride themselves on offering quality products and the highest standard of care. “Hearing is complex and so are today’s hearing aids,” Rosanne explains. “Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.’’ At Hearing Solutions Clinic you will never worry whether or not you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs. So, if you believe in your right to the best, fullest and most customized service available, book your consultation with an Audiologist at Hearing Solutions Clinic.

The ability to hear is priceless. Unfortunately, one in ten of us suffer from hearing loss. If ignored, even the slightest hearing loss has significant consequences. You become disconnected from your world as loved ones become mumblers and asking to repeat becomes a nuisance. Your safety and independence is compromised. You risk misdiagnoses and diminishing cognitive abilities. Indeed, untreated or improperly treated hearing loss has a pronounced negative impact on your quality of life. Consulting the appropriate hearing healthcare provider, in the most independent setting, is crucial. Privately owned and operated by Doctor of Audiology Rosanne McNamee, Hearing Solutions Clinic adopts a unique and refreshing approach to patient care which differs drastically with that of retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. When you walk into Hearing Solutions Clinic, there are no crowded waiting rooms, commission staff or sales tactics. Rather, you will feel at home as you are greeted in an environment with old fashion roots where the focus is personalized hearing healthcare, not hearing aid sales. From your very first visit, you become part of a team working together to reach one goal: to meet your hearing needs. Hearing Solutions Clinic is large enough to offer amazing professional services and products, yet small enough to devote all the time necessary for uncompromised customized care. You will get top quality, integrity, and no shortcuts. Based on past experiences at other hearing clinics, patients are often pleasantly surprised by not only the thoroughness, attentiveness and inclusiveness at Hearing Solutions Clinic, but also the product selection. ‘’Our patients are our top priority.

Kettle Island most attractive bridge option: NCC Communities angered but not surprised by route choice Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Raynald Ledoux, left, and Eric Peissel, consultants from Roche-Genivar Joint Venture, announce corridor 5, Kettle Island as the technically preferred option for an east-end inter-provincial bridge at the National Capital Commission offices on May 14. “I think it’s fair to say everyone saw it coming,” Assheton-Smith said. “When you look at any of the reports completed, I don’t think they could have reached any other conclusion.” The decision was made through two evaluation methods: a pair-wise comparison and reasoned arguments which were reviewed by an evaluation committee. Kettle Island ranked the best in traffic and transportation, natural environment, economic environment, land use and properties and costs. It ranked lower when it came to looking at the social environment and for water use and resources, including a potential risk to the Gatineau Water Treatment Plant, but the team was assured that any spills would be considered manageable. When it comes to the residents

who live near Kettle Island, social environment factors are of great concern. “Residents, especially seniors and young children, will suffer serious health risks by the increased air pollution from the diesel fuel the heavy trucks use,” said Judy Lishman, spokeswoman for the Manor Park Community Association in a press release. Upon hearing the news, OttawaVanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur said she was disappointed in the NCC’s recommendation. “The building of a bridge between Ottawa and Gatineau has been my priority for many years, but I’ve always maintained that a new bridge should not disrupt established residential neighbourhoods,” Meilleur wrote in a press release. “Any interprovincial

bridge needs to get the trucks out of downtown, and any proposal that does not respect the local communities and does not get the trucks out of residential areas is not a solution. I will continue to fight to protect all residential neighbourhoods and to encourage better public transit to and from the city core, and I will recommend that the Ontario government not fund a bridge at Kettle Island.” Building a bridge Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau said the location of a new interprovincial bridge would go has been studied for the past 60 years with Kettle Island always being the ideal location. Although he was happy to hear the greenbelt would be saved, Galipeau did say he questions when a bridge will ever be built. While admitting

there is a commitment from various levels of government to build a bridge, he said he has a hard time believing it could get built in his lifetime. The most recent reports released by Roche-Genivar revealed a bridge would cost taxpayers $1.6 billion. The summary allows for a 25 per cent contingency allowance to compensate for the level of accuracy and minor items and tasks not captured in the summary, as well as 20 per cent for engineering and construction administration costs. The report found that Kettle Island is the most economically viable option, coming in at $200 million less than the cost of the next most economical option. See EXHAUST, page 35 R0012110154

EMC news - Kettle Island has been named the technically preferred option for an new east-end interprovincial bridge. “This bridge is the most centralized in terms of where people are going, in terms of current land uses and development along that corridor,” said Eric Peissel, a consultant for Roche-Genivar Joint Venture. “Once again, this project has been ear-marked for quite some time by both sides and therefore properties and right of ways have already been preserved and doesn’t require extensive purchase of new properties and (because) of course costs of this corridor being the least expensive.” Hired by the National Capital Commission to establish which of the three locations would be the best option for a new interprovincial crossing, Roche-Genivar has been undertaking an environmental assessment for the past two years, holding public consultations, open houses, online comment forms and round table discussions to capture residents comments about a new crossing. Peissel joined the National Capital Commission’s Fred Gaspère and representatives from the ministère des Transports du Québec and the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario to make the announcement to media on May 14. Lori Assheton-Smith from Rockcliffe Park attended a community stakeholders briefing on the evening of May 14 and news of the chosen corridor did not come as a surprise to some of the communities that have been taking part in the consultation process for the past two years.

Assheton-Smith said she questions whether a bridge in the east end would help relieve the downtown core of trucks. She said even the NCC has admitted a new bridge will not reduce the amount of trucks downtown, but will only help disperse the projected rise in the amount of traffic. Based on projections for the year 2031, “the amount of truck traffic if we do not construct a new bridge will increase by 60 per cent on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge,” Peissel said. “In constructing a new crossing in corridor, we are able to reduce that increase to pretty much keeping the level of truck volumes equal to what it is today. Peissel added the consulting firm did look at what would happen if they were to somehow limit the truck traffic on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge, which resulted in more traffic being dispersed throughout the downtown bridges. “There will still be a lot of trucks in the downtown core, because that is what there destination is.” Assheton-Smith said those numbers just conclude that no bridge will Submitted reduce the amount of trucks down- The National Capital Commission revealed that Corridor 5, which crosses at Kettle Island, town. is the preferred choice for a new interprovincial bridge. Consultation

Residents are encouraged to attend the latest public consultation, being held in Orléans at Shenkman Arts Centre on May 27 from 5 to 9 p.m. NCC spokesman Fred Gaspère encourages the public to continue to participate. “The details are important,” Gaspère said. “We think they are terribly important now.” Those details will be the design of the bridge and mitigating factors for residents who live near the preferred route. Although the it’s the least expensive option, a new bridge at Kettle Island still carries an estimated $1 billion price tag, which Assheton-Smith said she thinks is a conservative number. “When you talk about mitigation, that number will increase. Add in whether the NCC wants to build something iconic, like what Fred (Gaspère) said last night, we could be talking closer to $2 billion,” she said. Assheton-Smith admits she is discouraged by both the consultation process and the announcement of choosing Kettle Island, she did say she will not give up trying to reverse the decision. “We will keep fighting for sure, it’s the right thing to do,” she said.

Training

Go!

Get back from the gym, pack your kids lunch, then think about yours… Your day is full and one way to make it simpler and healthier is to pack your whole days food to go! Think fruits, veggies, nuts and a layered salad to go! By taking whatever is in your refrigerator and creating an assembly line production, you can make a number of salads at a time and they will stay fresh for the whole week. Let your imagination go wild, grains, beans, sprouts, greens, nuts, seeds, fruit, veggies, dressings, so many possible combinations. Not only do the beans, nuts and seeds add protein, but so do sprouts. In fact, they can contain up to 35% protein. By adding sprouts to your diet you will get the necessary protein intake required by your body minus the fat, cholesterol, and calories that typically come with animal meats. Just grab and go and you are on your way out the door. Then when lunchtime hits you will be able to enjoy this feast for the eyes. Just shake and enjoy!

Apple and maple strudel a sweet and healthy treat

Ingredients

Apple and maple strudel • 2 large apples, peeled and cored • 825 g (2 lb) can whole dark plums, drained • 10 ml (2 tsp) grated lemon rind • 75 ml (1/3 cup) firmly packed brown sugar • 60 ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup • 60 ml (1/4 cup) water • 1 cinnamon stick • 125 ml (1/2 cup) packaged ground almonds • 6 sheets fillo pastry cooking oil spray

Vanilla yogurt • 80 ml (1/3 cup) low-fat milk • 180 ml (3/4 cup) low-fat yogurt • 10 ml (2 tsp) vanilla extract • 60 ml (1/4 cup) icing sugar Preparation

Cut each apple into 12 pieces. Halve plums, discard stones. Combine apples, lemon rind, sugar, maple syrup, water, and cinnamon in large pan. Stir over low heat, without boiling, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to boil and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes or until apples are just tender, stirring occasionally. Drain apples, discard the cinnamon and syrup and let cool. Combine apples, plums, and nuts in bowl and mix gently.

Layer pastry sheets together, spraying every sheet with cooking oil spray. Spoon apple mixture along long edge of pastry, leaving an eightcentimetre (three-inch) border at each end. Roll up strudel, tucking in ends while rolling; coat lightly with cooking oil spray. Place the strudel on an oven tray which has been coated with cooking oil spray. Bake in the oven at moderate heat (175 C/350 F) for about 30 minutes or until golden. Dust with sifted icing sugar and candied lemon rind, if desired. Serve with vanilla yogurt. For the vanilla yogurt, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 23, 2013

EMC community - Under My Wing Pug Rescue is once again inviting the city’s Pug lovers to spend a day meeting new four-legged friends. PugStock will be returning to the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre on May 26 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The dog rescue organization has rescued more than 200 pugs since 2006. It provides foster homes, medical care and forever homes to those animals it takes in. “Running a rescue means that there’s the vet costs and the food costs. This is the biggest fundraiser we do all year,” said Jennifer Gorman, who volunteers with Under My Wing. Entrance to the event will be $2 per person and all breeds of dog are welcome. Aside from a silent auction, which includes items like tickets to the Justin Bieber concert in July and an iPad mini, there will exhibitors showcasing everything from animal CPR to agility training. “It’s going to be a really fun day,” Gorman said, adding the Alta Vista Animal Hospital will have an exhibit, along with a pet photographer, supply outlets and grooming establishments. Pugs who have been adopted

thanks to the rescue will strut their stuff during a parade and those dogs awaiting adoption will come out and hopefully meet people interested in taking them to their forever home, Gorman said. It takes more than a village to run the rescue, Gorman said, adding all the people involved are volunteers. “We have no physical shelter building where we can house dogs, so we rely completely on fosters,” she said. Potential adopters are required to undergo a home visit and complete a comprehensive application form in an effort to make sure the dogs won’t end up back with the rescue. Gorman said she has always had a fondness for pugs because of their strong-willed personalities. “It’s a lot of dog in a small package,” she said. “They are a lot of fun.” As long as there are still backyard breeders and puppy mills, there is a need for Under My Wing to exist, Gorman said. Events like Pugstock also shed light on the work rescue organizations do and help to raise awareness about where to look when searching for a four-legged addition to your family. For more information on the dog rescue and upcoming events, visit undermywingpugrescue.com.

arts & culture Rotary Helping Change in Bokorvikofe

It is not easy to get to Bokorvikofe As you drive along in Ghana, West Africa, you are most likely to drive past the mud tracks that lead to it. If you were to go down the tracks, you would walk, unless you had a bicycle or a four wheel drive. It would take at least an hour before the village of Bokorvikofe came to view. This farming village runs mostly without cash, through barter, as it has for generations. But many now have cell phones and the children stand on the threshold of a technological society that will undoubtedly change Bokorvikofe forever. Without an education they will be lost. And their parents know it. The Rotary Club of Ottawa South, the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) and others, have developed a plan with the people of Bokorvikofe. They do the work, and where they need assistance in materials and expertise, The Rotary Club of Ottawa South (RCOS) and others will help. With this arrangement, a new kindergarten has been built by the community.

Proving Osgoode’s got talent Contest puts youth front and centre for Canada Day Emma Jackson

EMC news - We all know Greely’s got a few idols, and Metcalfe’s not kiddin’ about its young performers. But now Osgoode’s out to prove its got talent, too. A new talent contest set for Canada Day invites youth to put it all on the line for a chance to be crowned Osgoode’s best performer. Osgoode’s Got Talent will begin at 6 p.m. on the outdoor stage at the community’s Canada Day celebration. Twelve semi-finalists will compete for four spots in the 8 p.m. finals. Judges will then pick the top two performers, but ultimately the audience will choose the winner by way of a ballot. Organizer Debbie Gallagher, matriarch of the musical Gallagher family, took over the stage portion of this year’s Canada

With funds provided by RCOS, they hired a foreman and from the sand and cement they bought the people of Bokorvikofe made their own bricks. This was their school, and they built it, literally, from the ground up. The project is part of a program undertaken by GNAT in which communities identify needs and build action plans. Once the people of Bokorvikofe had taken action and completed what they could do on their own, RCOS was able to provide necessary financial assistance. The school project actually came in under budget.

years. “Parents and grandparents much more enjoy seeing their kids on stage than someone they don’t know.” Leading up the show, auditions will be held at the Osgoode Youth Association on Thursday, May 30 and Thursday, June 20. Each audition is limited to 20 audition spots, which must be pre-registered, and are limited to five minutes each including set-up and tear-down. Semi-finalists will be chosen in three talent categories: vocal/instrumental, dance and other. The ‘other’ category could include performances like stand-up comedy, a magician’s act or a novelty act, Gallagher said. Performers are also split into three age groups: nine and under, 10 to 15 and 16 and older. Gallagher said the performers don’t have to be from Osgoode. Members of the public are invited to attend the auditions and enjoy an evening of music and entertainment at the youth centre, said O-YA’s outreach co-ordinator, Carley Scharf. She said the partnership is a win-win for everyone, because the youth association usually hosts its youth-focused b.side cafe on Thursday evenings. Audience members can enjoy a drink and learn about O-YA’s programs while supporting friends and family at their audition, she said. “We’re really trying to outreach to youth and families who have never heard of O-YA,” Scharf said. “Youth (in other villages) that are younger don’t have access to vehicles, but it’s nice to let them know that we have a space here that they can use.” The auditions begin at 6:30 p.m. at 5479 Osgoode Main Street May 30 and June 20. Performers can register for a spot at www.thegallaghers.ca under the “Osgoode’s Got Talent” tab.

Aunt Lizzie’s strange gifts never served much use MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories place. Audrey’s hand mirror and comb, too, had to find a new home for Aunt Lizzie’s visit. Even though she was his sister, Father was always in a lather when Aunt Lizzie came for her yearly visit. She insisted on bringing him something which served no earthly purpose, and which she thought he shouldn’t live without. And often the hand-medown box, usually included a present for Father which made little or no sense whatsoever. Like the kimono. Father had never laid eyes on a kimono before, but he insisted on wearing it when we had neighbours in for euchre one Saturday night. Even Mother couldn’t talk him out of putting it on, but

when Uncle Alec after dealing out the cards, asked Father what in tarnation he had on over his shirt and trousers, Father decided the kimono just wasn’t for him. When Aunt Lizzie visited us in Renfrew County, she never failed to bring Father some outlandish gift, which she insisted was just what he needed. One summer it was a dress shirt with a high round celluloid collar, which Father had to wear to church the Sunday she was there. It took both Mother and Aunt Lizzie to button it around his neck, and when he got home he said his head ached and his ears were ringing. He never wore the shirt again. I thought the small stiff straw hat with the narrow

brim, and the narrow black ribbon looked much better than the big old tattered one Father wore around the farm. Aunt Lizzie bought it at Walker’s Store in Renfrew and she never let Father forget that she had paid a whole .75 cents for it! That didn’t make him like it any better, especially when he saw the identical hat on a woman in the Lutheran Church one Sunday! Well, one summer, Aunt Lizzie arrived, and as usual, the house was in a turmoil. She re-arranged the furniture without even an if-you-please to Mother, all of which was promptly moved back where it belonged the minute the train left Renfrew station. That year, Aunt Lizzie told Father that she wanted to go into Renfrew to do some shopping for him, as what she had in mind was too bulky to pack in her cow-hide suitcases. Father wasn’t too pleased, but Mother told him to get it over with...there would be no living with his sister until she had her way. And off they went in the

Model T on the Saturday. I couldn’t wait to see what Aunt Lizzie had in mind for Father. When they got home, Father was like a thunder cloud, changed into his bib overalls and headed for the barn. Aunt Lizzie came in with a shoe box under her arm. She opened it on the kitchen table, and there was a pair of men’s shoes the like of which I had never seen before. They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! Aunt Lizzie insisted Father wear them to church the next day, which he did with great reluctance, but the minute he got home, they were exchanged for his black well-worn work boots. Aunt Lizzie said he should wear them all day to break them in. Father sat and looked at the shoes for the longest time, and I could tell he was thinking long and hard.

He put the new shoes back on and headed for the barn to do the Sunday night chores. When he came in for supper, you wouldn’t recognize the new black and white leather shoes. They were covered with manure, grass and mud, and you couldn’t tell where the white insets started and the black toes began. Even Father’s socks were ready for the Monday washing! I knew without question, Father who was meticulous about both himself and the barns, had deliberately ruined the shoes. Aunt Lizzie flew into a fit, grabbed the shoes and went out to the rain barrel with a whisk and a rag. She agreed then they should only be worn to church on Sunday. Her train left before the week was out, and she wasn’t around to see if Father was in his new shoes at the Lutheran Church. Like the kimono, the shirt with the celluloid collar, and the straw hat, the shoes vanished, never to be seen again on the farm at Northcote.

ather’s sister Aunt Lizzie, very wealthy we thought, lived in Regina and once a year she came out to the homestead in Renfrew County, just to check up on her only brother, and as Mother said, to make sure the farm hadn’t slipped into the Bonnechere River. Aunt Lizzie didn’t think Mother was good farm material. She thought anyone who had lived most of her life in New York City, certainly wouldn’t amount a hill of beans in the backwoods of Renfrew County! Every time she came to visit, the house was in turmoil. Everything had to be scrubbed within an inch of its life, and my sister Audrey and I had to give up our bed and the little washstand we shared at the top of the stairs. Even the top had to be cleared off, so my collection of little stones I cherished... small little stones I picked up on the farm and which I loved dearly, had to be put in a little paper bag and tucked away for keeping in a safe

Man charged with attempted murder in stabbing Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - A 20-year-old man is in hospital after he was stabbed in the throat at his Orléans home on May 15. Michael Wassill was stabbed at his home on Fernleaf Crescent just before 2 p.m. When paramedics arrived, they determined he had life threatening injuries. His uncle, Paul Champ, said that Wassill’s heart stopped, but physicians revived him and he underwent five hours of surgery. As of May 16, he remained unconscious in the intensive care unit. Two hours after police received the call, they arrested 20-year-old Carson Morin. The next day, Morin was charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace. “I don’t know what evidence the police have,” said Morin’s attorney Rob McGowan. “He has a bit of a record,” McGowan said. McGowan noted that his client has been charged with “minor assaults” in the past two years. Champ said that Wassill’s

father, a diplomat, was away from the Orléans home while posted in Jordan when the attack happened. “There’s a friend of Michael’s, who he’s known for a long time, and she knows this Carson Morin and he’s been stalking her for sometime,” alleged Champ, who appeared at Morin’s court hearing Thursday afternoon. The night before the stabbing, one of Wassill’s friends found their tires slashed in the driveway of the home, Champ said. “When someone shows up at a house with a knife and plastic gloves, they’re not there for a dinner party,” he added. Wassill’s father, Champ said, got on the first flight home when he heard what had happened. He noted Wassill’s heart stopped on arrival to the Montfort Hospital, but that emergency physicians were able to revive him and transport him to the Civic Hospital where he underwent a five-hour surgery to save his life Wednesday. Wassill remains unconscious in the Civic’s ICU and doctors are monitoring the

young man. “Not that he’s not brave, but it’s not a situation you could imagine him in,” Champ said of his nephew, noting that he is a happy-go-lucky guy who likes to read books, play guitar and hang out with friends. “He’s a hero. We’re all very proud of him,” Champ said. “When a situation like that arose, he stepped in and did what he could. Right now we’re just praying he will recover from this.” Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Ottawa police at 613-2361222 extension 3566.

Barrhaven resident to head to Costa Rica in support of Canadian Arthritis Society

River Ward City Councillor @CouncillorMcRae Conseillère, quartier Rivière

‘I want to raise awareness about how debilitating arthritis can be’ Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Barrhaven resident Charlene Knight is putting her plans in motion. Knight was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 10 years ago after the birth of her daughter Madeline Rossetti. “The pain to simply walk or drive and to dress or to pick Maddie up was more than I could bear on most days,” Knight said. The mother of two said she refused to be a victim. She participated in her first Joints in Motion event in 2011, by completing a half marathon on the Great Wall of China. The next year she did another half marathon in Lausanne, Switzerland. Over the course of two years, Knight managed to raise $30,000 for the Canadian Arthritis Society. This year is the biggest one yet, Knight said, because her children Dante, 9 and Madeline, 10, will be doing the 10-kilometre run with their mother. The trio has already started their training by walking the 2.5 km whenever they want to get a book at Chapters, but Knight said they plan to start seriously training in June. “The kids came with me to China and Switzerland, but they are beyond excited for this one because they will actually get to participate,” Knight said.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of inflammation that causes the immune system to become confused and attack the body. The target of the attack is the lining of the joints and sometimes other internal organs – such as the lungs or heart. It causes swelling, pain, inflammation and joint destruction.

I want to raise awareness about how debilitating arthritis can be. Charlene Knight

Knight had her children close together because she wanted to be finished having children before experimenting with the right cocktail of anti-inflammatory and pain medication. After her son was born, Knight started weekly chemo injections which controlled her pain for a couple of years. Then the meds just stopped working. Now, Knight said she has found some new biologic drugs that has given her a new lease on life. “The medication suppresses my immune

system so it doesn’t attack my joints, organs and eyes,” Knight said. The new medication and the support from the Canadian Arthritis Society are the reason she said she feels she has to give back. “I want to raise awareness about how debilitating arthritis can be,” Knight said. “I think that’s why my kids are so anxious to participate. They saw how it was when I was not doing so well and have seen the change with support and the right medication.” On top of running the marathons each year and raising $30,000, Knight became a provincial advisor to the Canadian Arthritis Society board of directors in 2012. “I will do all I can to help find a better future for myself and others who suffer from arthritis,” Knight said. Knight said she plans to raise $15,000 before she heads to Tamarindo Beach in Costa Rica on Sept. 18. She has already raised $4, 000. According the Arthritis Society, 4.5 million Canadians suffer from arthritis. More than 60,000 of those are children and 300,000 people suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. There are more than 100 types of the disease. To learn more about Knight’s journey or to donate to her campaign, visit jointsinmotion.kintera.org.

Progress continues on the Airport Parkway pedestrian/cycling bridge. The contractor completed the anchorage assembly piece and it was delivered to the work site on May 15, 2013. This piece was then installed to the top of the main tower using a crane. Now that the anchorage piece is onsite and secured in place, the contractor will complete the steel reinforcement. The contractor will also conduct a critical survey to verify that the anchorage piece is in the correct place prior to the concrete pour. After this survey is completed, crews will close the opening in the formwork and another complete inspection of the formwork will take place to make sure that it is ready to receive the concrete pour. The pour for the upper tower will occur during the day, during off-peak hours in the coming weeks. You may notice the duration of this pour is much shorter than the duration for the lower tower and City staff have assured me that they will put all measures in place to ensure that traffic is disrupted a minimally as possible. I continue to closely monitor progress on this project to ensure that this connection is built safely and to the highest quality standards. 700 HUNT CLUB ROAD – REVISED SITE PLAN APPLICATION

Newcomers welcomed to Orléans at Habitat site Nevil Hunt

Twigs, leaves and plywood provided the floor for a Habitat for Humanity groundbreaking ceremony on Nantes Street, but soon enough, lawns and carpeting will be underfoot. A wobbly table full of juice boxes was set up for the May 9 ceremony, and it too will be replaced, by three kitchen tables. Only the juice boxes are likely to stay the same – there are lots of kids moving in. Three families are expected to take possession of their new homes in as little as four months, with eight children among the new residents. “Thank you to all who, in one way or another, made this possible,” said Margarita Caceres, who will live in a new bungalow with her husband Salvador and their four children. Prior to the groundbreaking, speakers reiterated that the three families are receiving “a hand up, not a handout.” Each of the new homeowners is employed but earns a low income. They will pay off an interest-free mortgage and will also donate hundreds of hours of time to building the homes

or to Habitat in other forms of volunteer work. Habitat then uses the repaid mortgages to carry out more home building. Donna Hicks, the CEO of Habitat for Humanity’s National Capital Region branch, said the Nantes Street houses will mean the Ottawa area will soon have 43 Habitat homes. She noted that one of the Nantes homes will be the first built with an aboriginal family in mind – Ida Kakekagumicks and her three grandchildren – all of whom attended the groundbreaking and took part in a traditional smudging ceremony to prepare S the site. The land where the three homes will be built was donated by the Regional Group of Companies, a real estate and investment firm, and their partners. Volunteer builders and some professionals will turn the site into a hive of activity for about four months. Work was expected to begin last week. The three homes consist of one bungalow and one duplex designed to appear similar to the single-family homes in the neighbourhood. For more information on the Habitat build, visit www.habitatncr.com.

Local students paddling for biodiversity School project takes learning to new heights with outdoors experience Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Students from a westend private school on Morrison Drive will be paddling through the wilds in the name of biodiversity. Students Académie de la Capitale in grades nine, 10 and 11 left for British Columbia on May 24 to start a trek from Pitt Lake to Jericho Beach. The group will begin paddling at Pitt Lake and make their way down Pitt River to the Fraser, where they will take the North Arm past the airport and the UBC peninsula, ending at Jericho Beach. The trip is a little more than 50 kilometres on land and will take three-and-half-days. Along the way, students will take samples of local flora and fauna. They plan to test water quality at Lester B. Pearson College on the way back. Barbara Odenwald, the trip co-ordinator, said the adventure coincides with The United Nations Biodiversity, which starts on May 24. “It also encompasses most of our curriculum,” she said, adding students will use knowledge from biology, Canadian Civics, history, geography and the languages. The rest of the city can keep up with our homegrown voyageurs through their Facebook and Twitter feeds (@AcadeCap). Braving the elements and the tides, the crew will be made up of nine students and five teachers from the school travelling in two canoes. One crew will only eat the diet of the country’s original voyageurs – a mixture of turkey or beef jerky and berries. The other crew will eat more modern fare. “It will really be roughing it,” Odenwald said. The first night the group will camp out on a pristine camp sight. The second night they will stay on an organic farm and learn from Coquitlam elders about maintaining aboriginal heritage in an urban environment. The third night will be at a campground. The group’s classmates will be in contact via Skype and a presentation will be made when they return home. Oldenwald said the school has an international baccalaureate program, which commonly uses experiential learning to tie classroom material together. “Students will be meeting with local First Nations, experts from non-government organizations, and leaders from different levels of government in order to observe, discuss and learn about the impact of human activity and land use on the river,” Oldenwald said. More information can be found on Académie de la Capitale’s Facebook page.

Recently, Canadians have raised concerns about the Temporary Foreign Worker Program being used by some employers to replace Canadians with foreign workers. Our government’s priority is to ensure that Canadians get first crack at available jobs in their area. This is why we have launched a review of the Program, and have moved quickly to identify and correct the problems that were preventing qualified Canadian workers from getting jobs. We will ensure Canadians are always given first chance at available jobs. We are mandating that companies produce a solid business plan to transition from the use of foreign workers to Canadians, including training Canadians if necessary. This will ensure that temporary foreign workers do not become permanent employees or a long-term solutions solution when many Canadians cannot find employment. We are also ensuring that we hold companies accountable, by increasing our authority to revoke work permits for those companies that do not play by the rules. This will prevent further fraud and ensure that the introduction of foreign workers into the workplace does not have an overall negative impact on the labour market. We are asking additional questions as part of the application process, so that when employers bring in temporary foreign workers, no Canadian workers are displaced as a result of outsourcing. We will require that employers using the Temporary Foreign Worker Program pay the workers at the prevailing wage for that job. Our government is also proposing the introduction of fees for companies who wish to employ foreign workers, so that taxpayers are no longer subsidizing the application process. These changes will strengthen and improve the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and support our economic recovery and growth. Our government will continue to review the program, and you can expect more changes in the coming months. Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton

Blackburn Hamlet skate park to get graffiti makeover Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news – Over the years, the Blackburn Hamlet skate park has become covered with various graffiti tags, a random mesh of letters and colours that coat the entire area. The community is going to re-cover it – this time with their own graffiti. The Blackburn Community Association will be hosting a White Out event on May 24 to completely paint over the skate park, which is located behind the Blackburn Arena. Volunteers can come around 6:30 p.m. to help with the painting, which will prepare the blank canvas for local artist Noah McDonald to paint the next day. “We’ll be blasting some music and having some fun. The east end has been plagued by graffiti and vandalism in the past,” said Laura Dudas, BCA president. “We’re trying to get young people to realize there’s art, and there’s vandalism, and where’s the line?” McDonald is a 17-year-old Gloucester High School student who creates graffiti art.

He’ll work with other Blackburn youth to work all their ideas together into one big mural. Several judges will be selecting the best ideas – with winners awarded gift certificates to a local shopping mall – and McDonald will put them all together into one. McDonald, a Grade 11 student, has already sketched out some of his own ideas, including the word skate in big, block graffiti style letters. He plans to use a lot of colours to make the different parts of the mural stand out. He’s volunteering his time to decorate the skate park, just around the corner from his own house. “I really hope it will discourage people from going over it (with graffiti) because we’re putting a lot of effort into it,” he said. He said if there is an actual mural painted somewhere, others who paint graffiti – such as “tagging”, where artists mark places with their signature – will be more likely to respect the art and leave it alone. McDonald said he doesn’t tag, because he wants people to see him as an artist who

The skate park is going to be completely redone, painted white by the Blackburn Hamlet Community Association volunteers and then painted by McDonald, a graffiti artist. creates pieces of art, not vandalism. This is going to be his first large public mural, but he has painted several legal areas, such as under the Bronson Bridge. He participated in the

House of Paint Festival, which draws artists from all over Canada to Ottawa to paint. It won’t be his only piece for long though, as McDonald has been selected for Paint It Up, a program run by Crime

PET OF THE WEEK

and eventually, commissioned works for local businesses. “It actually makes the community look a lot better,” he said. “Hopefully people will appreciate it when they use the park.”

Aries, life might get stressful really soon unless you curb your spending. Although you may feel like you’re made of money right now, eventually the well will dry up. Making changes is seldom easy, but change is necessary this week, Taurus. You may need to analyze which areas of your life can use the most work. Gemini, kick back and have some fun in the next few days. Otherwise, you may waste an opportunity to recharge your batteries. Work responsibilities will not wait for long.

Libra, if you want someone to take you seriously you have to make up your mind. Don’t flip-flop on your ideals this week or you may come across as a pushover. Scorpio, just when you think you have reached a dead end, a new path miraculously opens up. Don’t miss your opportunity because time is fleeting. If practice makes perfect, then you have just about reached perfection, Sagittarius. You have been over and over something from every angle. It is now or never.

Cancer, expect some rejuvenated ambition and energy. Spurred on by this newfound energy, you can successfully tackle many of the things on your to-do list. Leo, unless you can focus you will just be puttering around without a goal. Put your mind on one thing and stick with this line of thinking for a few days. Virgo, once you set your mind to something, it can be difficult to alter your opinions or perceptions. You may need to be a bit more flexible with a loved one this week.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Capricorn, there are many things you will not be able to change about this week, so why focus on the negativity? Instead, work around any issues and get the job done anyway. You often seem immune to the seriousness of certain situations, Aquarius. This week is no different. Try to recognize the gravity of a certain situation and put your best foot forward. Don’t think that your efforts have gone unnoticed, Pisces. A few key people have been keeping track of your accomplishments.
