EMC news - In a surprise move after nine years as premier of Ontario, on Oct. 15 Ottawa South MPP Dalton McGuinty announced he is stepping down as premier. The 57-year-old was the first provincial premier who called Ottawa home. “That was historic for our community to have a premier,” said Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli, a close colleague of McGuinty’s. McGuinty asked party president Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, to convene a leadership convention at the earliest opportunity. McGuinty said he will remain leader and premier until a new Liberal leader is found and he will remain as the MPP for Ottawa South until the next election – a seat he has held for 22 years. Chiarelli said there was a general sense that this term would be a “transitional time” for McGuinty, but the news he was stepping down was a surprise and came sooner than expected. “As the party and government of relentless progress, we’re always looking for new ideas and ways to renew ourselves,” McGuinty’s speech read. “And I’ve concluded that this is the right time for Ontario’s next Liberal premier and our next set of ideas to guide our province forward.” Having a local MPP leading the provincial government for nine years has “paid off big time” for Ottawa, Chiarelli said.

Ottawa charity lights the night Gabrielle Tieman

EMC news - Four thousand balloon clad, banner-wielding and cheering participants raised almost $350,000 for blood cancer research during Ottawa’s Light the Night walk Saturday evening, Oct. 13. “Canada has more than 100,000 people living with or in remission from blood cancer,” said Andrea Swinton, the executive director of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. “Since our

McGuinty steps aside ment at press time.

Continued from page 1

River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière

When McGuinty became the provincial Liberal party’s leader 16 years ago, the Ontario Liberals had won just one election in 50 years. “We were in the wilderness, and he brought us back. He brought us back in style and I think with tremendous credibility,” Chiarelli said. “He delivered big time to this community.” Other Ottawa-area politicians with Liberal affiliations weren’t available for com-

Ottawa Water Quality Is Among the Best In The World As Chair of the City’s Environment Committee, I am pleased to let you know that our drinking water quality exceeds all expectations for meeting provincial standards and federal guidelines. In the 2011 Drinking Water Quality Management System Annual Report, the City achieved 100% ratings from the Ministry of the Environment for all of its seven drinking water production systems for the third consecutive year.

The evening announcement came amid opposition accusations that McGuinty misled the legislature over power plant cancellations that will cost taxpayers upwards of $230 million and pressure from teachers’ unions over his efforts to freeze their wages and take away their ability to strike. But McGuinty cited party “renewal” and the opposi-

tion’s blocking of a publicsector wage freeze bill as his reasons for stepping aside. “It has nothing to do with that, and everything to do with a decision that Terri and I have made,” McGuinty told reporters late Monday night. “It’s time for us to return to our own lives, and it’s time for me to make an effort to renew the leadership of our party.” Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, who served as a provincial cabinet minister under McGuinty, said the premier never forgot his Ottawa roots when he went to Queen’s Park and as a result, the city has benefitted from hundreds of projects that would not have happened without his support, including

hospitals, schools and infrastructure projects. McGuinty also asked Lt.Gov. David Onley to prorogue the legislature “to allow those discussions with our labour partners and the opposition to occur in an atmosphere that is free of the heightened rancour of politics in the legislature.” Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak expressed his thanks to McGuinty for his service to Ontario. But he criticized McGuinty’s decision to ask for the legislature to be suspended, saying it prevents “critical work” that needs to be done to address job creation and the province’s debt.

“To have the best women hockey players in the world coming to compete in our home town is not only great

for the teams, but it is going to be even better for those young girls who are aspiring to participate in the national, international and Olympic level. It is going to inspire the next

It just takes time.” The 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship is being hosted in partnership by Hockey Canada, the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association and Senators Sports and Entertainment. “We look forward to seeing fans fill our arenas to watch the top female players from across the globe take to the ice this April,” said Cyril Leeder, president of Senators Sports and Entertainment. He added that he expects the tournament to be another record setting event. “The 2013 IIHF Women’s

World Championship here in Ottawa will be the largest congregation and celebration of women’s hockey ever staged,” said Leeder. “We have a number of high-level goals for this event and one of them is to set an attendance record and to establish a new record of 200,000 people attending this event that will surpass the record set in Winnipeg in 2007.” They also hope to generate $30 million in economic activity, a million higher from what was generated from NHL All-Star Weekend in Ottawa in January.

involved with the national team since 2004. A two-time Olympic gold medalist and top scorer in the history of National Collegiate Athletic Association women’s hockey, Agosta said wearing the Canada jersey is always both an honour. “It is not a right. It is a privilege,” she said. “Playing for the national team has always been my dream, ever since I was six years old and to be able to put on that jersey the first time was a dream come true.” Agosta hopes she can inspire as many young women to be as successful as she has been. “If I can inspire somebody to do something special, then I will be honoured,” she said. “It is not about the gold medals that we have won, it is about inspiring somebody to do something special in their lives.” For Bonhomme, women’s hockey has come a long way. In 20 years from now, she hopes women will have a fully-functioning professional league, one that not only has a high-level competition that there is now, but one that also has packed rinks. “We have the product and we showed it in Vancouver,” she said. “We are on our way there.

Herongate tenants win battle for rebate, repairs Eddie Rwema

eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – Ontario’s Landlord and Tenant Board has awarded tenants living with mould on their windows and holes in their walls in the Herongate area more than $75,000 in rebates and repairs. For months, Ottawa ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) has been lobbying to force property owners to put much-needed repairs into homes and apartments in the Herongate community. On Oct. 2, members of ACORN called a press conference to announce what they called “celebrating a win� against a landlord in Herongate. “We are here to celebrate some victories that we have had with our rental abetments and to thank all our volunteers who helped us over time dealing with the rent abetments,� said Mavis Finnamore, ACORN member, adding that the group has had a 95 per cent success rate in pleading out their cases. So far 31 cases have gone through or are still pending at the Ontario’s Landlord and Tenant Board, according

to ACORN. Finnamore said she hoped their success would encourage other tenants to go after landlords who are slow with repairs. In previous years, property owners Transglobe REIT and Starlight Properties have come under pressure to perform repairs to the housing complex. Timbercreek Asset Management now owns most of the highrises in Herongate since June and some tenants said conditions have been slowly improving. Derek Rider, Timbercreek’s regional manager, said the rebates and repairs ACORN referred to was for rulings since February for all Herongate properties, not for any one individual property owner.  “Timbercreek has been an owner and manager of some properties in this community since July,â€? he said. “As part of the Herongate community, Timbercreek has appeared at the tribunal mostly as a result of carryover from the previous property owners.â€? He added that Timbercreeks exchange with ACORN has been a positive and productive one. “We value the feedback from ACORN and all mem-

bers of our community on what we can do to make this a fantastic place for our residents to call home,� said Rider. “We feel we’ve made huge strides here in the Herongate community and are particularly proud of the positive words and letters of thanks and support we’ve received from our residents since we acquired this property just over three months ago.� Last month, Timbercreek organized an appreciation day to show their thanks to the residents. “This event had a phenomenal turnout and was an excellent opportunity for the residents to engage with us in a positive environment. We continue to look forward to building a partnership with our residents as we work to strengthen our community,� said Rider. In the past, dozens of ACORN members have worked with pro-bono lawyers, law students and professors to force landlords to act on issues of repairs. Finnamore said she hopes their case will set a precedent and make the city create a bylaw that would create a minimum standard for residential properties. “There are quite a lot of

solidarity of all the volunteers, who included Daniel Tucker-Simmons, a secondyear law student at the University of Ottawa. “It was a huge eye-opening experience. We encountered tremendous difficulties that low- and middle-income

people face in terms of trying to assert their rights to decent housing,� said Tucker-Simmons. “We learned that unless people demand their rights and take action to places like the tribunal, their rights are not going to be respected.�

EMC news - As part of an ongoing campaign of health promotion, a team from the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health participated in Ottawa’s Run For the Cure on Sept. 30. Even though the weather wasn’t completely cooperating, Carlie Chase, the director of initiatives at the centre and her team took part in the annual run to help raise money for breast cancer. “It was amazing event,” Chase said. “We had everyone from all ages participating on our team and it was great.” The team participated not only to raise funds for breast cancer treatment and research, but also to promote healthy living among members of the Wabano community.

The running group is one of the three fitness groups the centre organizes weekly. “Healthy individuals make healthy communities,” Chase said. The centre has a “booty” class, which focuses on interval training, and its Pow Wow Pump aerobics class. Some of the team members had never ran a five kilometres before, but Chase was happy to report everybody successfully completed the run. Chase invites others to participate in the groups and said the running group will continue throughout the month of October, but may change its format a little. More information about the health programs from the centre is available online at www.wabano.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ WabanoCentre.

EMC sports - Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club centre Emma Dickinson capped off a tremendous season when she landed this season’s Ontario Australian Football League rookie of the year award. The 25-year-old Mooney’s Bay resident joined the newly established Ottawa Swans women’s club this year and it didn’t take her long to cement her position on the team and to help the Swans to place second in the regular season. “It was very cool to be able to receive the rookie of the year award. I was extremely honoured given that most players in the league this year were rookies,” said Dickinson. The Swans play in the Ontario Australian Football League (OAFL), which is one of the biggest leagues outside of Australia. This year was special however, as it was the first time that Ottawa, and several other Ontario clubs fielded women’s teams in the league. “It was more profound because the entire league is essentially a league of rookies,” said Dickinson. The former Brookfield High School student was involved in the game a few months ago and said it is great to see it picking up momentum in Ontario. “I have played almost everything under the sun - rugby, soccer, volleyball, basketball, you name it. I have tried everything and though this game is obscure in Canada and not well known, it really suits me and it came naturally to me,” she said. “I wish I had known about it sooner, I could have been playing this game for years.” Dickinson credits her success to having a good background in athletics. “Yes, it was tough and I worked hard on the field, but I think I was fortunate to be

Australian football is played between two teams with an oval shaped ball. Each team has 18 players on the field at once for the four, 20-minute quarters, though women play under modified rules in OAFL games. Points are scored by kicking the ball through end zone posts, and the fast-paced game doesn’t have the traditional downs stoppages American football has. Dickinson plays centre and her role is to rove the entire field, following the ball and moving it from the defence to the offence. “You are almost every-

where the ball goes,” she said. This summer, Dickinson and five of her teammates were named to the national team for the 49th Parallel Cup held in Dublin, Ohio. The Canadian national team, was formed in 2007 and is known as the “Northern Lights”. “It was a huge honour to play for the national team. I had never imagined I would be a national-level calibre and I was very excited about that,” said Dickinson. Chris Lockhart, Ottawa Swans women’s head coach was full of praise for Dickinson. “She is a fantastic leader on and off the field, and the Swans are lucky to have her in our organization. I look forward to seeing what she

brings to the pitch next season,” said Lockhart, a former men’s national team player. “Emma was a real pleasure to coach. She is very competitive, and determined. She is an amazingly talented athlete.” Being selected for team Canada was not only an achievement for Dickinson, but for the Ottawa Swans club as well, he said. “It’s a great accomplishment to be selected for team Canada, and named the rookie of the year for the OAFL all in the same season,” he said. “I’m extremely proud to be a part of her success as her coach, it’s a great feeling when I see my players progress and take the skills that I have taught them and put them into action with their own creative spin.”

Women’s hockey to be feast for starved fans

H

ockey starved fans will soon be treated to a feast, when Ottawa plays host to the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s Championship next April. The games will take place at the Nepean Sportsplex and Scotiabank Place from April 2 to 9, with the world’s top 10 teams competing for the world championship. The tournament comes as welcome news to a city struggling with the loss of

revenue from the National Hockey League lockout. There’s no telling how long the lockout will last – it could range anywhere from a month to an entire season. Fans have been placed once again in the middle of a dispute between owners and players over revenue sharing, a conflict that has left casualties among hotels, restaurants and other businesses that depend on money generated by NHL games. The women’s world hock-

ey championship is expected to generate $30 million in economic activity, according to Cyril Leeder, president of Senators Sports and Entertainment, one of the hosts of the tournament during a press conference on Oct. 11. The games are also expected to bring in an estimated 200,000 spectators, he said. Spectators who will rent hotel rooms, purchase food at restaurants and buy gas at gas stations, boosting the city’s

economy and encouraging temporary job creation. The last time a Canadian city hosted the women’s world hockey championship, in 2007, the games generated $29 million in the city of Winnipeg. The games also promise some exciting hockey, with the best players in the world competing for their countries. Some of these players will be putting on the Team Canada jersey for the first time and competing for their

country on an international stage, an honour that overshadows any medal count or the amount of money generated by the tournament. Fans will also be treated to a revival of the long-standing rivalry between Team Canada and Team USA, traditionally two of the best teams in women’s hockey. The tournament will also serve to inspire a new generation of hockey players, some of whom may aspire to one day compete on a na-

tional and international stage. Let’s face it, women’s hockey does not receive the same amount of coverage or support as men’s hockey. If the NHL lockout wipes out the 2012-13 season, people won’t be distracted by the playoffs, giving a boost to the profile and fan base of women’s hockey. The federal government has announced it will support the tournament to the tune of $500,000 – a welcome investment in our national sport. The women’s world hockey championship serves as a reminder that NHL hockey isn’t the only game in town.

Life in a super-sized society CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

W

e may not be getting better but we’re certainly getting bigger. You realize this every time you go shopping. Look how big the shopping cart is – way bigger than it used to be. It’s like you’re pushing a truck down the aisle. The stuff you put in it is big too. And we should have mentioned how big the store is. If you walked from one side to the other without stopping to put any big items in your big cart it would still take you five minutes. The store is big because it has a big selection – not just groceries, but chairs and TV sets and toys and pharmaceutical stuff. Some of those things are bigger than you expected to find in a grocery store, but fortunately you have a big cart. You pay your big bucks and wheel the big cart out to the parking lot, which is really big. Most of the cars in it are big too. That’s a good thing for carrying big groceries, maybe not so good in other respects. In fact, there are a whole lot of respects in which big is questioned, but not by too many people yet. When “big� is used as an adjective in our society it means “good.� Then you drive onto the big highway that goes where small neighbourhoods used to be. It would all be alarming if you suddenly arrived from a place where things were smaller, but those of us who have been around here for a while have got used to all this bigness. Look what we’re getting in Ottawa: more big buildings, a big development at Lansdowne Park, a big casino. You don’t see politicians

bragging about the small things they’ve created. They may have forgotten how to do that. Big is all around us. When we go to the movies it is to a big building with many big theatres inside with wide seats and ample legroom. When we order snacks at the movies the small popcorn is huge and so is the small drink. It is no surprise that people are getting to be pretty big too. A lot of experts worry abut that, but how do you expect people to stay small in such a big environment? Not that everything is big. Some things that we wish were big aren’t, such as parking spaces. And then there are airplanes. About the only place where we are treated as if we were small is on airplanes. The seats are narrow and the legroom is only adequate for children. Those of us who are not children feel as if we have accidentally stumbled onto the wrong plane, a children’s plane. Maybe somewhere on the tarmac is the proper plane, a grown-ups’ plane with seats that fit us and aisles where two grown-ups can walk by each other. But on this airplane we just feel too big now. The feeling intensifies when we are brought a meal. It is on a tiny tray with little utensils wrapped in plastic which we find there is no place to put once removed. Our fingers are too big to perform the tasks demanded of them. We are all thumbs and the thumbs are too big, too. You know the feeling. As you wrestle with all of this your shoulders collide with the shoulders of the person next to you. Somewhere inside one of the bits of plastic are a tiny plastic fork, a tiny plastic knife, a tiny salt and a tiny pepper and something to wipe up any food you might spill if you are ever able to get it unwrapped. You wish, while you struggle, that you were in a giant movie theatre with a small (big) popcorn and a small (big) drink and that the movie theatre could fly. You appreciate bigness suddenly, except for your own.

The secret to tackling life in an effortless way

E

veryone says you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aspire to be superwoman. But I have a friend who really seems to do it all, and more. I love this friend. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be her, but I love her. She has four children, including a newborn and a toddler. In her day job, she runs a communications department. While on maternity leave, since July, she has filled her pantry cellar with preserves. At a glance, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d guess there are 100-plus jars of jam, chutney, pears, peaches

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse and fruit cocktail in there. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done this while breastfeeding full-time and working on her MBA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you know, in her spare time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it make you sick?â&#x20AC;?

an elderly relative asked me recently. On the contrary, it makes me inspired. We recently spent the weekend at her house. I took

advantage of an extremely comfortable gliding rocking chair and foot stool, rocking my baby to sleep constantly, while she served me gourmet coffees and delectable homemade muffins. (I have no idea where they came from. They just sort of appeared). On the morning of Thanksgiving, I asked if I could help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nope,â&#x20AC;? she replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m good. And just so you know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be all stressful until lunchtime. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just going to pop in and out of the

kitchen as needed, but you probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even notice me cooking a turkey.â&#x20AC;? Fine with me. Had I been cooking, everyone would know it. It would be chaos for four hours and the turkey would very likely come out overcooked and two hours late. So I went out for a walk in the sun, and then retired to my rocking chair for the morning, sipping gourmet coffee after delectable gourmet coffee. I started watching the way

she worked and thinking about the secrets to success in life. And by success, I mean accomplishing a lot in a day, being healthy, having four healthy children, earning a good income and developing oneself academically â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all things which my friend is doing at the same time, in an effortless way. I noticed a few things. For one, she is extremely good at thinking ahead. See BALANCE, page 10

Ottawa & Area - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away

Balance key to managing family life Continued from page 9

EDDIE RWEMA/METROLAND.

Grade 2 teacher Richard says Project Love has been inspiring children to think globally, act locally and make a difference.

Pleasant Park holds Project Love fundraiser for Ethiopia eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – For the past three years, students at Pleasant Park Public School have assembled kits of school supplies that are shipped to children in need in poor countries, across Africa and the Caribbean through a Project Love. Through Project Love students learn about global issues through curriculum-based activities, fundraising, and making kits of school supplies for students in developing countries. Each kit includes a pencil, eraser, notebook, ruler and a personal letter from a Canadian student to the kit’s recipient. Grade 2 teacher Richard Thibault, has coordinated the project before and he is once again spearheading efforts to raise funds to purchase school supplies. This year’s school supply kits will be sent to Ethiopia where educational resources are scarce. “Right now we are spending time with our group of leaders on educating them on the different needs in Ethiopia and how we are able to help them,” said Thibault. The project empowers Canadian children to act as global citizens. Students learn about the challenges their peers in

Thibault said he hopes the project helps children to be aware of how other people are struggling and to know that doing something to help is crucial. “I am trying to teach them that helping others is important. These kids give up a couple of their lunch hours and they have made huge differences in other kids’ lives,” he said. “I just wish they can see the reaction of the people on the receiving end.” The goal of Project Love at Pleasant Park this year is to raise $900. According to Thibault, students and staff at Pleasant Park are excited and are looking forward to realizing their goal. “The kids are quite motivated and are happy being part of the project,” he said.

at delegating tasks that can be delegated. If the turkey isn’t served up perfectly, no matter, at least it got to the table and it’s delicious. If the kids need to spend some time with a babysitter while she works on an essay, that’s what needs to be done. If I have two hands to tackle the dinner dishes, she fully expects, or asks, that it be done. I came home from my weekend away well-rested and full, not to mention inspired. I spent the next two days baking and making soup and working on that book I’ve (actually, never) wanted to write. I went for brisk walks in the mornings and tried doing things in snippets like my friend does. I’ve accomplished a lot and, you know, it feels good. Next on my to-do list? Purchase one of those gliding rocking chairs. After all, it’s all about balance.

other parts of the world face and understand that the kits of school supplies they send can make a real difference. “As a first year teacher at Pleasant Park Public School, I wanted to do something to help those less fortunate and to have my students involved,” said Thibault. Previously the project has raised money through bake sales and the money went towards helping children in Haiti and Ethiopia. “We sold greeting cards made by students. It is fundraising made through the sale of greeting cards,” said Thibault. “Most students in those countries have to break a pencil in a half to be able to share it or they have to take the notes and then erase the page so they can reuse the paper.” Thibault has had his shares of struggles in life. He had a stroke when he was seven, was type one diabetic at the age of 14 and at 21 he was diagnosed with celiac disease. “I have struggled not severely, but I know what it is to face adversity and I think, if I had no one to support me it would have been the worst experience of my life,” he said. “To be able to support people in need, is something that is important to me.”

Her brain is like a little computer database, ticking off tasks as they’re completed. She’s also great at taking advantage of snippets of time, which most of us, frankly, would spend lounging in a rocker. Early morning, after feeding the baby, when everything is “under control” (ie: kids have breakfast that had been prepared the day before and guests are rocking comfortably with gourmet coffees in-hand), she goes for a 20-minute run. It’s efficient, she’s cleared her head and she’s powered up for the day. She pops the (extremely contented, I might add) infant into a bouncy chair, while she chops up something for tomorrow night’s dinner. Then she takes a pause to go feed the baby, have a conversation with guests, set up a craft for her

older offspring or read to her toddler. The toddler and guests now entertained, the baby now full, she slips into the kitchen (almost unnoticed) and, I kid you not, whips up a pumpkin cheesecake pie from scratch. The secret, she tells me, is she made the pastry a few days ago in anticipation. Then she rests. We chat again, she probably brings me another gourmet coffee – or, depending on the time of day, a slightly stronger cocktail. While I’m in the bathroom for a moment, (I’m guessing), she whips up some stuffing. But I realize her secret is that she’s actually not “doing it all,” as I thought at first glance. She makes trade-offs between things that are important and those that really don’t matter; she’s actually extremely good at letting things go and also

EMC news - One of city council’s most impassioned debates on Oct. 10 resulted in the city lending its support for a possible new casino in Ottawa. The 19-5 city council vote means the city will “signal its interest” in a possible new gambling facility somewhere in Ottawa to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, an agency of the provincial government. Any actual proposals from private developers willing to build a casino wouldn’t arrive for another year. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt, one of the councillors who voted “no,” said the casino fix is in. He was leaning towards supporting the idea, but he said that the more research he did, the more he realized it was a bad move for the city and particularly his rural ward, where people are supportive of the employment and entertainment options at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. Representatives from the raceway have said they will submit a bid to expand the facility into a casino, but Mayor Jim Watson has signaled his preference for a more urban gaming facility. Paul Godfrey, chairman of the gaming cor-

poration, has said he wants to bring casinos “where the people are.” “It’s impossible for me to support this and support the Rideau Carleton Raceway,” Moffatt said during the city council debate on Oct. 10. He said he has no faith in the gaming corporation. “They show no drive to take into consideration what we said (during the finance and economic development committee) on Oct. 2 about the Rideau Carleton Raceway,” Moffatt said. “Unless we only say, ‘Rideau Carleton Raceway,’ they will come back with anything but.” No one on council was willing to move a motion to limit the lottery corporation’s search to areas outside the city’s core or specifically the raceway site. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor was similarly reticent about supporting the proposal, but while he said he will treat the lottery corporation “as an adversary,” he voted in favour. UNKNOWNS

The councillors who voted against the casino motion said there are too many unknowns. From the possible location to the amount of revenue the city could stand to see from a casino, a lot of information is

constituents. “Once a big project gets going, it becomes awfully hard to apply the brakes,” Chernushenko said. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess said he had a “cynical feeling” about the issue and asked why Ottawa wouldn’t have started discussing this topic sooner, like many other Ontario municipalities. Still, he voted in favour of looking at a potential casino. “This is really going forward somewhat blinded,” Holmes said before voting in favour of continuing the process.

VETO

Part of the problem is that neither city staff nor councillors fully understand the level of input the city will have into where a new casino would be located. The city definitely has veto power over OLG’s casino proposal; the city has the final say on rezoning any land that a proponent wants to build a casino on. But what is more vague is the city’s level of influ-

ence over suggesting where it would prefer to see a casino. The gaming corporation will run a call for proposals and choose the best casino plan and location. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette wanted to know whether council could have any input before that decision is made. For instance, he asked if the city could be presented with the top three options, allowing council to indicate to the gaming corporation which one was most likely to be approved. Bidding processes don’t work that way, the mayor said. He said it’s possible the gaming corporation would bring forward its second-favourite proposal in the event the city rejected the top bid, but city manager Kent Kirkpatrick said he will have to talk to the gaming corporation to clarify the process.

Ottawa gets an ash borer wake-up call George Lamirande of Davey Tree, said the longer the borers are left to decimate a tree, the more hazardous and therefore costly it becomes to remove. Furthermore, leaving an infected tree until it absolutely must come down provides a food source for the beetles to continue to multiply in that area. “It’s critical for it to get out of the way,” Lamirande said.

EMC news - Experts are banking on a predator wasp to beat a bug that’s devastating Ottawa’s ash trees. More than 50 concerned residents gathered at a Federation of Citizens’ Associations of Ottawa-Carleton forum at the Overbrook Community Centre on Oct. 9 to hear about the devastating impact the emerald ash borer on Ottawa’s tree cover – and what could be done to slow it down. Currently, there is no way to stop the beetle, which burrows under the bark of ash trees, eventually killing them. Pesticide injections at a cost of a couple hundred dollars a tree every two years can prolong a tree’s life, but so far, there is no way to completely beat the bug. But there is hope, and the experts asked for residents’ help to “hold the line” until it can get here. That hope will come in the form of a wasp – the emerald ash borer’s natural predator in Asia. While the city has spoken very cautiously about the possibility of introducing a stingless wasp, experts at the Oct. 9 forum said the wasp is the only hope for North America’s ash trees. “It’s the way forward,” said Bruce Gill, a federal research

The Federation of Citizens’ Associations held a forum on the emerald ash borer at the Overbrook Community Centre on Oct. 9. scientist with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. “It’s not a common pest in China because they have a predator … We need to restore the natural balance.” The wasp is being tested in several states south of the border, but it could be more than 10 years before it might be brought to Canada. A federal agency could make an application to try that method here or a specific city could apply and go through the pa-

perwork. The process is so complicated, Gill said he’s crossing his fingers than some of the wasps will eventually fly north and arrive in Canada as a “naturally occurring species.” Until then, treating trees will be critical, said Joe Meating, whose company, BioForest, produces the main (and until recently, only) pesticide used to combat the emerald ash borer in Ottawa. “We’re buying time for

predators to be introduced,” Meating said. Early treatment is key, he said, or there may be nothing for the wasps to save, if and when they are brought to Canada. Even if the wasp never comes here, it’s not worth waiting to treat or cut down infected trees, said Sean Barker, director of the Eastern Ontario Arborists. “It’s definitely going to cost more later,” Barker said. Another local arborist,

The experts said this year marked a big wake-up call about the emerald ash borer, which was first identified in Ottawa in 2008. “I learned it takes a shock to the system to get people to notice,” Barker said. Before 2012, there were “a lot of whispers in the background,” but this year his company has had three times as many booking for free treatments or removals. Many of the residents in attendance wanted to know what they could do as neighbours and community associations to help fight the problem. Barker and Davey said they are seeing – and encouraging – a trend of community groups organizing a group treatment, where a company is hired to come and inject or remove infected trees in

a concentrated area, such as along a street. The neighbours are often able to negotiate group discounts that way because the process is more efficient, Barker said. Besides that, neighbours can just help spread the word, all the experts said. It is estimated more than 20 per cent of the tree cover in Ottawa is ash, and many of those trees are on private property. Educating neighbours about what they can do to combat the big is essential, Lamirande said. FUNDING

The city has been putting about $2 million per year into treating and removing city trees infected with emerald ash borer, and earlier this summer city council approved an extra $1 million for this year. Environment committee co-chairman Keith Egli attended the event and delivered news that the committee will be looking for $4 million in funding to combat the emerald ash borer in 2013. While James O’Grady of the Federation of Citizens’ Associations said he was happy to hear that the funding could be going up, he added it won’t be enough. The city will still have to remove the dead trees and replant new trees, and those costs will only rise.

EMC news - The latest designs for a new mural project in Optimiste Park have been approved by the members of the Vanier Community Association executive. Spearheaded by the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, the mural project will showcase what youth living in the area would like to see at the park. Wabano’s coordinator for the project, Christine Head, brought in the preliminary design to see if the association board members approved of the colours and concept, which they did within minutes. “I think it is a great idea, it looks marvelous,” said board member Geoff Derry. The mural will cover the Genest Street-facing wall of the Optimiste Park’s pool house. It will incorporate aboriginal culture, park favourites and elements of youthful imagination. “There will be animals throughout the mural,” Head said. “They will be on the play structure equipment; they will show what the kids want in the park.” One type of animal which

will be featured, Head said will be a bear. Some of the “must haves” for young people include a new play structure, benches, and better designated areas to play or skateboard. The concept for the mural was created during a community fundraiser event when youth from the area drew on one large piece of paper and ideas presented in the draft design were taken from that session. Wabano is covering the costs of the project, including the cost of two professional artists, who have agreed to help the children at a low fee. The centre has applied for a larger funding grant, which Head said would help recover the costs of the project and properly pay for the professional artists’ time. The project is but one of the activities organized by the community to help rejuvenate the park. The community association supported a development at 222 Beechwood Ave. working with the developer to receive funding for the park. If the developer, Domicile’s condominium building at 222 Beechwood Ave. is built, the company committed to donating $50,000 towards Optimiste Park’s renewal.

ccasionally instead of passing along a recipe, I write a column filled with kitchen shortcuts and helpful tips. If I’ve come across some interesting bit of food trivia, I’ll include that as well. This week, I’ll take you from graham wafer crusts to King Louis XV of France.

• When you need to press a graham wafer crust into a springform pan, sometimes it’s hard to find just the right tool. If you use your fingertips, they get greasy and covered with crumbs. A fork doesn’t get right to the edge of the pan, and it flattens only a small area at a time.

Farm Boy™ Organic Tea

• One of the best tools is a round potato masher, the kind that has square holes, not curved lines of wire. The curved shape fits the edges of the springform pan and the large size covers a bigger area with each impression. • Another handy item to keep on hand in your kitchen is a box of thin latex gloves, the kind that food preparers use in commercial establishments. Put on a pair of gloves whenever you’re handling a

Throw them out to avoid possible contamination of other foods. • To tenderize beef stew, add one or two tomatoes to the pot. Tomatoes contain an acid that breaks down meat and tenderizes it naturally. • If your glass or plastic cutting board slides across the kitchen counter when you’re using it, dampen a dish cloth, and lay it on the counter under the cutting board.

• Which brings us to King Louis XV of France. According to one story, he was so afraid of being poisoned that he had several servants taste his food before he ate it. By the time the soup reached him, it was cold. He liked it so much that he had it served cold from then on. That – supposedly – is why the creamy French potato soup, vichysoisse, is always served chilled.

tawa. Getting to know your neighbours helps build community spirit – and once you have that, you have residents who take pride in their neighbourhood and truly care about the place they call home. That, in turn, creates a greater sense of well-being in the community. Residents feel safe and are safe because their efforts to build a better community tell criminals they are not welcome in the area. There are many ways your community can come together to create safer environments for everyone who lives there. Here is one example from Crime Prevention Ottawa’s Neighbourhood Toolkit: • Build a community garden: a community garden is a place where people come together to grow flowers, herbs, fruits or vegetables. Often, community gardens make use of neglected or underused spaces in neighbourhoods, providing beauty and sometimes food for the people who tend them. It’s a great way to bring people together, educate them about the environment and create a stronger sense of community belonging and pride.

t all started when Emerson brought the book home from the Renfrew library. While the rest of us picked story books, mine with pictures, Emerson always wanted a book about buildings. Now, there wasn’t a large choice of books on buildings at the Renfrew library, and that day Emerson found one, all about some huge structure in Italy, it changed his life drastically. Emerson loved buildings. Mother managed somehow to buy him big pads of plain white paper and he spent hours drawing buildings. We would watch him at the old pine table at night drawing towers of glass. Poor Emerson, we’d say. Who ever heard of glass buildings? Who ever heard of towers made completely of windows and some with elevators going up the outside? We’d think how odd Emerson was, not like the rest of us who were content to look through the Eaton’s catalogue or play cars. No, Emerson drew buildings. The book was all about some strange building in Italy, called the Tower of Pisa. Emerson was spellbound, not because it was so tall and was built in some strange country, but because it had a lean to it.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories He sat at the table every night gazing at the Tower of Pisa and even drew it on his white sheets of paper. Little did we know at the time what he had in mind. “We have one just like it. Right here on this here farm,” he announced after about three nights of gazing at the pictures in the book. No one paid him any heed. It was the next day -- a Saturday. Emerson, after his chores had been done, came in to the house and gathered up his sheets of paper and the book on the Tower of Pisa and headed outside. “I have something to show you,” he announced to anyone within earshot. Earl and I were the only ones interested and we followed Emerson with his sheets of paper through the summer kitchen. He headed right for the silo. There was an old stump beside the silo -- I wouldn’t go near it with a 10foot pole because that’s where

the chickens got the axe. Emerson knew I hated that part of the barn yard, so he went down the hill a few paces and beckoned Earl and me to follow. The silo was in front of us. Emerson held up his pencil and squinted as he leveled it in his eyesight. “See how the silo tilts? Just like that one in Italy. I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if whoever built it used the same plans as the tower in Italy. And maybe even had a hand in helping building this one here.” While that made perfect sense to me, Earl was much less impressed. “The one in Italy is made of stone,” Earl said. “This here silo is made of old pieces of lumber and Emerson, you know as well as I do that the reason it’s tilted is because it’s over 100 years old and was built on a bit of a hill.” See Grandfather, page 19

Grandfather built silo Continued from page 18

R0011679293

Besides, he added, “our great grandfather built the silo when he came from Germany. This here silo has nothing to do with a building in Italy.” Now, as well as liking to draw buildings, Emerson also liked to hold funerals for anything that passed away on the farm. Dead birds found out on the grass, even a frog that was found in a rain barrel at the back of the house, were all subjected to Emerson’s idea of a fitting funeral. Again, Audrey and Everett refused to have any part of Emerson’s idea of a proper burial, but Earl and I being the youngest of the children, were riveted to any crazy scheme our brother had that would add a bit of excitement to our lives on that farm in Northcote. I had no idea if Emerson made it up or if it was actually in the book from the library, but he said funerals

were held in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and from now on, any funeral he would be conducting would be in front of our old wood silo. Just like they had in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Well, as luck would have it, a few days later, Mother had ordered Everett to get some chickens to take into her customers in Renfrew. That meant a trip to the stump behind the silo. Emerson decided these poor chickens needed a proper funeral and we would all meet behind the silo as Everett wielded the axe. I was having no part of it. Earl, who was as squeamish as I was when it came to beheading the chickens, said he had chores to do and the last I saw of Earl he was heading for the barn. I was already getting on an apron in the kitchen and looking for something to do. Emerson showed his disgust by stomping outside with his papers in hand,

heading for the silo, looking for something to bury. There wasn’t a dead bird or any other dead critter in sight and he had to give up on the idea of holding a funeral in front of the silo that day, because Everett said if he came within a country mile of the stump, Emerson could help with the slaughter. Well, Emerson was as squeamish as Earl and me and the only thing he was interested in burying or holding a funeral for was something that was already dead. We were all saved from another discussion about future funerals held behind the silo, because like everyone else who borrowed a book from the Renfrew library, Emerson had to take the book about the Leaning Tower of Pisa back in a week or pay a cent for every day it was overdue. It was the last we heard of the likeness between our old tilted silo and some stone tower in Italy.

EMC news - Mayor Jim Watson was all smiles on Oct. 11 as he officially handed off Lansdowne Park construction duties to the Ottawa Sport and Entertainment Group. As part of the event, he and OSEG partner Roger Greenberg signed a ceremonial wall plaque finalizing the partnership between the city and business group. While some preliminary work has already been done on the project to redevelop the city-owned property, contractor Pomerleau Inc. was sched-

uled to begin work in earnest on Oct. 15. As Watson and Greenberg, joined by city councillors and other OSEG partners, gathered to sign the plaque, they had two items dug out of the archives to set the tone for the historic moment. Both Russ Jackson’s helmet and a 1976 Grey Cup football were present, reflecting some of the history the partnership said it is looking to re-establish. “This is an important day in the history of our city,” Watson said. “It’s exciting to see what has started over the summer.” With the south side bleachers torn down, it’s left the north-versus-south-side bleacher arguments on pause until the new stadium is complete. “Memories like that have sustained us a group,” Green-

berg said, reflecting on the 1976 Grey Cup game. “It’s returning those memories.” Frank Clair Stadium, once completed, will play host to Canadian Football League and professional soccer teams, as well as the Ottawa 67s. The plans for the park include underground parking, shops, homes, restaurants and recreational facilities. Watson said that national and international experts in design and engineering have been consulted in the planning stages of the development project. “The park has a special place in our heart,” Greenberg said. “We’re really at the end of the beginning.” The mid-2014 is the target for completion of work on the stadium, with the remainder of the redevelopment work to be complete by the summer of 2015.

EMC news - The ink is now dry on the deal to renovate Lansdowne Park. City council voted 20-3 to give its final approval to the multi-million-dollar deal with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, paving the way for one of the largest construction projects in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history to begin on Oct. 15. The deal, four years in the making, will see the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Frank Clair Stadium receive major overhauls to enable the return of a Canadian Football League team. Construction of an underground parking garage will make room for a mixeduse development including an office tower, condos, shops and a cinema. The portion of the site between the Aberdeen Pavillion and the Queen Elizabeth Driveway will be transformed into an urban park with a water feature, orchard, and public event space. The vote wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unanimous. The councillor for the ward in which the park sits, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, voted against the final report, as did Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans and Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes. Holmes said she is concerned that the city is handing over the reins of a piece of public land to private develop-

ers. Deans said the partnership is the most difficult, complicated deal the city has ever entered into and she is not certain itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing for taxpayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately I think our taxpayers are going to be paying the price for many, many years to come,â&#x20AC;? Deans said. Chernushenko said that despite his opposition to the project, he acknowledges it will be moving forward and has been focused on making it the best it can be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to make sure it works for them (Glebe residents) and that it was not on their backs this was built,â&#x20AC;? he said. Chernushenko called on his council collegues to support important transportation and transit plans that will be essential to making the development work, including a planned $17.5-million footbridge over the Rideau Canal, connecting the Glebe and Old Ottawa East. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a cost to it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mayor Jim Watson said it was a proud moment for him because it shows council can get things done at city hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public said stop dithering and start digging,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waiting for perfection is going to kill any project â&#x20AC;Ś It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been easy, but in the end, it will be magnificent.â&#x20AC;?

On Oct. 10, city council voted 20-3 to give final approval for a half-billion-dollar deal to revitalize Lansdowne Park in the Glebe. The site is seen above on April 30, before construction began. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick said the rigorous design review panel process â&#x20AC;&#x153;established a new level of urban designâ&#x20AC;? for the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(It is) expanding our understanding of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible in Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? Kirkpatrick said. Orleans Coun. Bob Monette, a longtime supporter of the project, said the redevelopment and the addition of football will make Lansdowne a tourist destination. Watson reiterated his argument that the public-private redevelopment will replace 0.73 hectares of asphalt with public spaces and a park. He said the project will also â&#x20AC;&#x153;close the gapâ&#x20AC;? between the communi-

ties of Old Ottawa South and the Glebe. Football is scheduled to begin in 2014, and the timelines will be tight. The project has faced 18 months of delays due to the design review panel asking for tweaks to the project and two legal challenges brought forward by the Friends of Lansdowne and the Lansdowne Park Conservancy. Kirkpatrick said the construction schedule will be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;complicated danceâ&#x20AC;? that will mainly hinge on the construction schedule for the parking garage, but the timing allows for typical delays that might result from weather or other minor issues.

Mapping the canopy in Old Ottawa South Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A tree canopy project taking place in Old Ottawa South plans to identify types of trees growing in area parks and the value the trees offer the neighbourhood and city. On Oct. 11, a group of Old Ottawa South residents, Carleton University students, officials from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and Heather Hamilton, a former forests and green space advisory committee chairwoman, gathered to count the tree canopy in Brewer Park. Hamilton said she got involved because she was looking for a fun community proj-

ect and since the city is only taking stock of street trees but not in parks, it was just right. “We’re filling in the gap.” she said. The objective of the project, which is also taking a canopy count in Windsor Park, is to use the data collected to prepare a report which will include information on all the trees in the park. The report will include location maps and global positioning system data, pictures, species and size of the trees. “It would be nice for us to get a picture from both the neighbourhood and city perspective,” Hamilton said. “To see how much parks are contributing to the overall health of the city.”

She explained such factors as a tree’s contribution to controlling storm water run-off, air pollution and local weather temperatures. “Without trees, it would be hotter, more polluted and your basement might be flooded,” Hamilton said. The catalyst for this project has been the emerald ash borer. The beetle has burrowed itself in ash trees all over the city and as a result thousands have been lost. For Mike Lascelles, chairman of the Ottawa South Community Association environment committee, this project will help the neighbourhood have a better understanding of what types of trees are in the parks and whether any existing ash trees are healthy. This canopy count will help the Old Ottawa South community have an idea the amount

ally in tough shape there (at Windsor Park), with 30 to 40 emerald ash that are on death row, wind damaged trees and vandalized trees.” Planting is nothing new for Lascelles and the environment committee. More than 15 years ago, he and other members of the neighbourhood planted around 300 trees in Brewer Park, along the river, in an effort to protect the habitat. The only thing is, at the time, they did not keep a record of what species were planted, so now they are taking note of the diversity, which is a difficult task,

Scott Danford and Dan Cooper from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority are also helping with the project. “Sometimes it can be very hard, these guys are the experts, it is great to have them,” Lascelles said. Erika Rose, a fourth year environmental sciences student at Carleton is one of the students participating. For Rose, being out in the field is the best kind of experience she can get and having the opportunity to do her research in Brewer Park, her neighbourhood, is even better. “I thought it would be cool to do something in the neighbourhood where I interact and live,” Rose said. “It is better than just reading about it. Here you are in the field, learning first hand.” The project, Hamilton said is something neighbourhoods across the city can also start. “Anyone can do this, as long as you can access some sort of expert for the identifying,” Hamilton said. “Certain aspects are not difficult, and some keen naturalists could do it.” The group will complete the Brewer Park and Windsor Park counts, Hamilton said, by mid-October.

Scotch tickles the tastebuds at Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Skeggs then introduced a Glenfarclas scotch from Speyside, which has the highest concentration of distilleries in Scotland. He said it was sweet with notes of fruit because it was aged in sherry casks. He paired it with chocolate. The ďŹ nal dram was also paired with something sweet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a butter tart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to go with the port ďŹ&#x201A;avours in the Glenmorangie scotch from the Highlands. Mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to host formal events like whisky tastings, because regular visitors get a chance to see the mill in a different light. The heritage building was glowing with warm candle light to guard against the chilly autumn air outside.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rich aromas of smoky whisky and gourmet appetizers ďŹ lled Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill on Thursday, Oct. 11, when about 45 people gathered to try a taste of Scotland. Whisky sommelier Geoffrey Skeggs led the tasting sessions, which included four types of single malt scotch whisky. He paired them with a va-

riety of appetizers provided from the Mill Tavern in Manotick. He began with a 10-yearold whisky from the Springbank area of Scotland, which he said was lesser known as a scotch region. He said the scotch he chose is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a tour of Scotland in a single glassâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it features aromas of smoke, fruit and cereal. He paired it with an apple-wood smoked cheddar. The second dram was Bruichladdichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Port Charlotte whisky from the island of Islay. He described it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;peatyâ&#x20AC;? with aromas of plastic bandaids and seaweed. He paired it with candied ginger, because he said strong whiskies need strongly ďŹ&#x201A;avoured food pairings.

Overbrook library celebrates 50 years Room to be dedicated to first bilingual chief librarian michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The St. Laurent branch library will dedicate a room to renowned children’s author and Ottawa’s first bilingual chief librarian Claude B. Aubry at its 50th anniversary celebrations. The Overbrook library celebration will take place on Oct. 20 at the branch, located at 515 Côté Dr., beginning at 10:15 a.m. Mayor Jim Watson will be in attendance to dedicate the children’s programming room to the city’s fourth chief librarian Claude B. Aubry. Suzanne Matte has been organizing the event for the Ottawa Public Library. “A plaque will be unveiled to commemorate his role as godfather of the branch,” she said. “Additionally, and importantly, the program room will be dedicated to and named for Aubry.” Aubry, only 38 years old at the time, was Ottawa’s youngest, first bilingual and ultimately longest-serving

chief librarian, serving in the position from 1953 to 1979. An author of English books for both children and young adults, copies remain on display at the branch and have been translated into French and Chinese for young readers. Aubry died in 1984 at the age of 70. The St. Laurent branch first opened its doors on Mutual Street in June 1962. At the time, building the branch was expected to cost about $100,000 and city council borrowed $70,000 to cover those costs. It was the growing interest in the library which led to its expansion and move down the street to Côté Drive in 1996, when the city expanded the indoor rink and built the Don Gamble Community Centre. The children’s programming room was the part of that expansion. “An important part of the new plan was the large program room accessible from both the main entrance and the children’s library,” she said.

Aubry’s daughter, Dr. Monique Frize will be in attendance at the Oct. 20 dedication. A grandfather bench has been purchased as part of the dedication and will be located just outside the side entrance of the library. The bench’s statute image is of a kindly older man who invites a child to join him on the bench, while he reads them a story. The events for the day will include performances by La Ridaine, Folkloric music and Luc Leduc the Duke of Magic. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark will also be in attendance and will provide the refreshments for the event. For more information about the event please call the St. Laurent Branch at 613-748-1531, ext. 3 followed by ext. 2 for the adult information desk.

ID # A057266

JEWEL - This spayed female, gray and white Shih Tzu is about 7 years old. She has been at the shelter since August 27 when she was brought in as a stray. Jewel is on the shy side, but loves to cuddle once she gets to know you. She gets along well with other dogs who are similar in size and energy. She needs a calm home with teens

and adults. Jewel is a special needs dog because she suffers from arthritis pain. She is on pain medication, which she will need to continue after she is adopted, possibly for the rest of her life. Jewel’s new family should take her to their veterinarian to prescribe pain medication and to discuss treatment options that may slow the progression of her

arthritis. If you are looking for a senior dog, with lots of character and love to share, then come to the OHS Adoption Centre and meet Jewel! TOOQUE - This neutered male, brown and white tabby cat is approximately 6 years old. She was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on

August 14. Tooque loves to play with toys and people. He has a very friendly disposition and gets along well with other cats. He has also lived with a dog for a short while. He’s learned to come when you “click” your tongue and would be happy to come live with you, but always indoors please where it’s safe!

Care of the older pet

their tired bones. Some older pets may have difficulty climbing stairs. For cats, moving a litter box for easier access away from stairs is a helpful change. Cats should always be kept indoors for their own safety. Grooming Older dogs and cats tend to groom themselves less often and this can lead to tangled fur and skin problems. Be sure that you or a professional groomer tends to your pet, is sensitive to joints that may be stiff and looks out for lumps, bumps or changes in the skin. Keeping nails short allows your pet to walk more comfortably, especially if arthritis is a factor. Preventative Care Exercise in moderation is one aspect of preventative care for aging pets. Keep your dog or cat going as they

get older. If they are cooped up or kept lying down, their bodies will deteriorate more quickly. You may want to ease up a bit on the exercise with an arthritic cat or dog. Keep them active mentally and physically to keep them sharp. Take note of any behavioural changes such as appetite, thirst and elimination habits. Report any changes to your veterinarian. Chronic conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease are common in older pets and can affect the amount of water your pet drinks. Plenty of fresh water should be always be available. Monitor your pet’s intake. Schedule regular veterinary examinations – it’s one of the most important steps you can take to keep your senior pet in good health. These exams

can catch and delay the onset or progress of disease and can help in the early detection of problems such as arthritis. Healthy senior pets should visit the veterinarian every six months Senior pets are special friends who deserve to have their remaining time, quality time.

As pets get older, there are many ways owners can ease the aging process for their cat or dog. Your senior pet will need special attention in these areas: Nutrition Obesity in pets is often the result of reduced exercise and overfeeding and puts your pet at risk for heart disease. Obesity also puts strain on the joints. As a result of their decreased activity, older pets have lower calorie requirements. Special foods with less protein and fewer calories can help keep your pet’s weight under control. Consult your veterinarian for a balanced diet that will meet the needs of your pet. Shelter Owners can provide a warm, quiet, soft place to help their pet sleep and cushion

It Takes A long Time to Get This Sweet Adopting an older pet is making an important statement about compassion. Many older animals come into shelters because their owners have died, gone into seniors’ residences or moved to apartments that do not allow pets. Older pets have been around and if you provide them with a good home, they’ll recognize it and appreciate it!

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

He loves to play Frisbee and swim at my parent’s cottage when he gets the chance to go up there, he loves the winter, loves to roll around in the snow, loves to play Frisbee then too and also he loves to lay in the sun during the summer. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

Female hockey players aiming for university careers Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - For top female hockey players, it’s as much about the athletics as it is the academics. University and college level play is the main goal for most junior competitive players. “For the girls, the highest level they can basically play other than Team Canada is college,” said Nepean Junior Wildcats head coach Dave MacDonald. “It’s what I would call their NHL.” MacDonald has put a heavy emphasis on performance off the ice, in the classroom, for his players. His players are in the right league to get recruited to a university program, playing in the 20-team Provincial Women’s Hockey League. “It’s great to be a good hockey player, but first of all you have to be a good student,” MacDonald said. “The academics are the most important thing for these kids.” American schools need to see strong standardized testing results and high school grades before offering players scholarships. While players on the team range in age, the majority on this year’s team are Grade 12 students. Though it’s a Nepean team, training at the Nepean Sportsplex and doing dryland training at Scotiabank Place in Kanata, players come from all over the region to play for the Wildcats, one of two Ottawa teams in the PWHL. The Ottawa Senators Women’s Hockey Club also has a team in the league who

versity level hockey in Canada. Nipissing University and Laurentian University have just started new women’s

teams this year. MacDonald played hockey for Laurentian University; hockey carried his own

daughter through a successful career with the Carleton University Ravens team. As a new coach for the Wildcats, he wants to bring his experience with the university system to the players to make sure they have the option to play hockey in future years. “I know what it takes to get there,” he said. “I know what a student athlete has to do to be successful, and that experience is very valuable.” Two players from this year’s team are also playing for the provincial team, with Lauren Miller from Brockville on the first team, Team Red, and Kanata’s Taylor Thurston on the second team, Team Blue. Three more players made it to the selection camp. It will hopefully help the team when the provincial championship comes to their own backyard. This year’s championship tournament is being help in Ottawa in conjunction with the women’s world championship.

It will be a nice break from the frequent travel the team makes to play Toronto-area teams, hitting the road almost every other Thursday night to travel for games or tournaments. MacDonald hopes the team will make at least the semifinal round and finish in the top four teams in the league. Despite a 16th-place finish last year, about three-quarters of this year’s team is new to the Wildcats. “This will be a big year for us,” he said. He thinks they have it in them, with a group that he said is very close, and committed to one another. “They get along extremely well,” he said. “Basically, they’re a great group of girls to coach and very talented.” But what it comes down to at the end of the day is hard work on the rink, balanced with hard work off it. “That’s what we have to stress as a coaching staff – the education has to be number one,” said MacDonald.

Vanier to host first community forum Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Concerns surrounding development, walkability, park revitalizations and transportation are all up for discussion at Vanier’s first Neighbourhood Connections office forum on Nov. 3. The event will be held at the Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is being promoted as a forum where community members and leaders can speak with city staff about zoning, arts and culture, development and sustainable transportation in the area. Mike Bulthuis, president of the Vanier Community Association, announced at an Oct. 9 meeting that this forum will offer residents a great opportunity to address issues to city staff. “The community can look at how they want to move forward,” he said. “This is a fairly significant undertaking.” Bulthuis added the forum will also give residents a chance to hear about new projects coming to Vanier. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said the event will give residents a chance to address some key concerns or zoning issues in the area. “It is not about developing a CDP (community design plan), but about looking at zoning areas and development opportuni-

ties,” Fleury said. An example the councillor offered residents at the association’s meeting was that of Montgomery Street. There a number of homes have turned entire backyards into parking spaces, used for three office buildings along McArthur. Fleury noted that this is the type of change the community could highlight to city staff. The forum will sit residents and city staff together at tables to participate in a number of different discussions about the city. Bulthuis said the event will allow for residents to speak on multiple issues of concern for the area in one place. The forum is being organized through the city’s recently created Neighbourhood Connection Office as a way to help community groups get involved in improving their neighbourhoods. Created in the wake of the city’s planning summit held back in April, the role of the office is to address neighbourhood-level projects, like as making streets more walkable, revitalizing parks, or introducing artistic initiatives such as street painting.

One of the ways the office will do this is with a new program, called “Better Neighbourhoods,” which will support small-scale communitydriven projects. Not every neighbourhood may meet the criteria for a community design plan or other forms of major planning consultation, but there are opportunities for neighbourhood-level projects such as this forum in Vanier. While this forum is the first of its kind, the office is already rolling out a much larger pilot project in the Woodpark and Woodroffe North neighbourhoods, where the new program will be tested before it is expanded to three or four additional neighbourhoods in 2013. Registration for the Vanier forum began on Oct. 10 and is free, but space is limited. Residents can register online at www.ottawa.ca/forumvanier, pick up and complete a form at Quartier Vanier, 287 Montreal Rd. the Vanier Community Service Centre, 290 Dupuis St. or at the RichelieuVanier Community Centre, 300 White Fathers Ave. A completed form can also be sent to the Vanier Community Forum/Neighbourhood Connection Office, 110 Laurier Ave. West, 3rd floor east, K1P 1J1. Registration closes on Oct. 26. For questions con-

Dynamic Roofing Systems Inc.

cerning the forum, please contact the Neighbourhood Connection Office at neighbourhoods@ottawa.ca or call Linda Cristina, planning and growth management department at 613-580-2424, ext. 25070.

Taurus, there’s so much to get done this week that you may not know where to begin. Making a list of your responsibilities may help you get organized. Gemini, you may be on the fence about making a large purchase, but the stars indicate that now could be a good time to buy and things will work in your favor financially. Cancer, instead of rushing along through the daily grind, take some time to slow down and enjoy the scenery along the way. This will help you clear your head and relax. Leo, the weekend will not be fun unless you finish up all of your work at the office. Don’t procrastinate and leave all the difficult tasks until next week.

Libra, whether feedback from work is positive or negative, rest assured that hard work will ultimately garner some recognition. Keep working hard and all will work out. No one is going to know how you feel unless you speak up, Scorpio. Don’t slink into the shadows; get out in the open and have your voice heard. Projects around the house seem to grow with every passing day, Sagittarius. If you do not think you can get them all done on your own, it may be time to hire a professional. Experiencing car troubles, Capricorn? This may be the ideal time to go shopping for a new vehicle. A new ride can lift your spirits and put to rest those fears about your current vehicle. Don’t work yourself silly, Aquarius. It’s good to be productive and company-minded, but not if it comes at the price of your health. Recharge before you tackle anything else. Pisces, while it can be challenging to sit idle, lazy days are very often great ways to catch up on some rest and personal time.
