EMC news - Re-routed buses were one of the main concerns residents voiced at a recent open house to provide the public with information about the upcoming Churchill Avenue reconstruction. The buses, routes 150 and 16, could be diverted to Roosevelt Avenue as the city begins phase two and three of the Churchill Avenue rehabilitation project that would run in the fall 2012 and fall 2014, respectively. The project will see a number of improvements along Churchill, including new water mains, sewers, concrete curbs and sidewalks, separated bicycle lanes and traffic control modifications. Ludington said he believes the new cycling lanes will have a positive impact on the community, but there are concerns with buses being rerouted to Roosevelt. “It’s a relatively narrow residential street,” said Gary Ludington, head of the Westboro Community Association, who attended the open house. Resident Joan Reilander, who was also at the meeting, lives on the street and called the proposed changes to the route “ridiculous,” especially considering the programs at Dovercourt Recreation Centre and the more than 20 children who live on her block.

Spirits were high as runners like Jean Francois Veilleux from Chateauguay, Que., hit the eighth kilometre of the Ottawa Marathon on Sunday, May 27 along Fairmont Avenue in Hintonburg. More than 4,300 athletes ran the 42.2 kilometre race, which snaked through the more scenic areas of Ottawa and Gatineau. The first Ottawa runner to cross the finish line was Pascal Renard, who placed 26th.

Mayor’s proposal to review council size rejected Laura Mueller

EMC news – A fight to shrink city council may not be over yet. Cumberland Coun.

or Jim Watson’s proposal to review the option of reducing the size of city council during a May 23 meeting. “(There are) other ways in which a boundary review can be initiated,” Blais said. “Certainly a council vote isn’t the only way,” he said, referring to a provision that kicks off a ward boundary review if a petition with 500 signatures is submitted to the city. Blais had drafted a motion

to kick off the ward review and was ready to give notice to council on May 23, but the mayor’s office requested he hold back, Blais said. Bringing the proposal forward in a different way could have led to a different outcome, Blais said. “I think we could have finessed the support,” Blais said. That comment came after Mayor Jim Watson, who made

Turnbull raises more than $18,000 for Ottawa Hospital Kristy Strauss

kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - As part of their Mission Possible campaign, staff and students at Turnbull School managed to raise more than $18,000 for cancer care at The Ottawa Hospital. “Our campaign is all about challenging yourself to achieve the mission,” said Heather Horne, head of community service at the school. “This year our mission was to find a cure for cancer.” The campaign wrapped up its 15th year of fundraising

through Run for a Reason at The Ottawa Hospital. In addition to taking part in the run, students also raised money through bake sales and events held on campus. To date, the school has raised $413,000 for the hospital. The school’s custodian, Joe Fatoric, was also at the ceremony held at the school on May 23 and received special attention. Last year the school’s campaign, Jog for Joe, was focused on Fatoric’s battle with colon cancer.

our fundraising can really do.” Guest speaker Mark Sutcliffe also spoke to the students and said the campaign is especially important to him since he lost his father and sister to cancer. “I’m doing this because I care about my hospital and I care about my community,” said Sutcliffe. “And I’m running because I want to make sure what happened in my family doesn’t happen in other people’s families.” Horne said the campaign also serves as a reminder to

“At this time last year, Joe was undergoing treatments for colon cancer,” said Horne. “He went through six difficult weeks of chemotherapy and our Jog for Joe was such a hit that it helped Joe go through this difficult time.” In addition, Horne shared the great news that Fatoric went for his last checkup and is now cancer-free. “He’s been given a clean bill of health,” Horne said, as Fatoric received a standing ovation. “We are so happy to have Joe back with us again and to see what a difference

students to be socially responsible and give back to society. The effort was made by all of the Turnbull community, she added, including parents. Three students also received applause for selling flower pots in early May to their neighbourhoods and raising $500. The school’s fundraising efforts over the last 15 years have helped in many areas of The Ottawa Hospital, including helping to build an emergency room trauma unit, purchase an infant resuscita-

tion unit, raised funds toward building the breast health centre and last year, designating their funds to finding a cure for colon cancer. Rice Honeywell, who works at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, said the money raised will help researchers work to find a cure for cancer and help them understand the disease. “More and more, we’re seeing cancer is no longer an impossible disease,” Honeywell said. “It’s possible to treat, and it’s possible to hope.”

The Hintonburg community will be kept up to date on development in the area thanks to a new section on the community association’s website.

Hintonburg adds ‘development watch’ section to website kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Hintonburg resident Jay Baltz and the area’s community association were getting so flooded with questions about potential developments in the area that he decided to help the situation. Recently, the Hintonburgh Community Association member came up with the idea of posting every development on the association’s website in a new section called Development Watch. “We’re so flooded with these things now,” said Baltz. “We had a hard time keeping track.” Baltz said the association was getting tons of questions through Twitter and email and there were even rumours starting about what developments could come to the area. One of those rumours included that the BA Banknote Company, located on Gladstone Avenue, had already been sold to a developer, a claim that Baltz said is not true. He said the chart set up on the Development Watch site will include the most up-todate information for residents as well as the status of potential developments. Currently, Baltz said some developers are getting the zonings set right now – including Claridge’s development proposal at 1050 Somerset St. “It’s meant to let people do one-stop shopping, so they don’t have to rely on catching Twitter feed at the right time,” Baltz said. “It’s a pretty easy way (of communicating information).” He also said that the idea allows for the community association to be more transparent in the projects they are working on and what its position is on potential developments. Baltz said while Hintonburg is bracing for more development in the next few years, he feels that Vanier is the next community that could benefit from something like a Development Watch section on the association’s website.

“(Vanier has) the same main street, there’s enough good restaurants and funky shops . . . I can see the same thing happening,” Baltz said. For a full list of developments in the Hintonburg area, visit the Development Watch section of the association’s website at hintonburg.com.

Falling deeper into a dark place The increasing number of adolescents seeking care for mental health issues has skyrocketed, but stagnant funding is straining the system Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - It would be a heartbreaking experience for any mother. Kathy Brunsdon sat by the phone for a week at her Stitsville home, making call after call, concerned about her 15-year-old daughter Hannah. Daron Richardson, a 14-year-old girl who lived nearby, had recently died of suicide. And Kathy was concerned that Hannah was displaying the warning signs she was reading about. She already had a psychiatric referral in at CHEO, but hadn’t heard anything back. “I don’t remember anything,” Hannah, a Canterbury High School student, said about the time. “I felt like I was hovering above myself. It was just a horrible time.” Kathy waited. “I hadn’t heard back and Daron Richardon’s suicide happened and I started to panic,” she said. “I tried calling for an entire week, leaving a message every day. I sat right there by the phone. I don’t remember moving from the phone, just waiting and waiting and waiting.” Since then, mental health services for youth throughout the city have seen a spike in demand. spike in demand

In 2011, CHEO saw 1,479 psychiatric crisis visits to its emergency department, mostly teenagers with depression and anxiety related issues. That’s 50 per cent increase in two years, served by the same 25 beds and staff numbers that the psychiatric ward had in 2009. CHEO has stated that in Ontario, one in five youth have some type of mental health problem, but only one in six of those get the help they need. That means for every 30 youth in Ontario, five have mental health problems that may go untreated. Ottawa has seen a swell of awareness in the media and at public events since the high-profile death of Daron Richardson, daughter of Ottawa Senators assistant coach Luke Richardson in November 2010, and Jamie Hubley in October 2011, city councillor Allan Hubley’s son “Certainly in November 2010, over a couple of week period of time we saw this remarkable increase,” said Dr. Hazen Gandy, director of child and adolescent mental health services at CHEO. “We expected the volume of business to return to the consistent level, but it’s continued since then.” It’s a cause and effect that has spiralled out of control, leading youth and parents alike through traumatizing months on a waitlist before they can get treatment. Comparing CHEO’s increase in demand for psychiatric services to other hospitals is hard – children’s hospitals vary significant in catchment area and size, and the detailed mental health statistics only began to be released in 2011. But CHEO had more than 1,400 visits to the emergency room for mental health issues in 2011, the greatest number in the province. The second-highest demand in On4

Hannah, left, and Kathy Brunsdon were thrown into a complicated youth mental health system when Hannah, now 16, was diagnosed with depression and anxiety in 2010. The Brunsdons were put on a waiting list in 2009 around the time of Daron Richardon’s death – a time period that saw a spike in demand for youth mental health services. tario was at the Children’s Hospital at the London Health Sciences Centre with 845. The third, Lakeridge Health Corporation, saw 625. Gandy said overall emergency room visits have gone up, but the increase in mental health visits exceeds the overall increase. “There are other places seeing a fairly significant increase, so I don’t think we’re alone,” he said. “But certainly in eastern Ontario, we’re

seeing substantial increases.” The youth psychiatry program at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre serves referrals for 16 to 18years-old from CHEO’s emergency room, so the demand has hit the program just as hard. “We started seeing some increase at the end of 2009, but there has been a big surge since Daron Richardson, and then that was followed by Jamie Hubley,” said Dr. Smitta Thatte, youth psychiatry clinical director. “And it hasn’t stopped.” In 2009, Thatte said the department had 10 to 12 referrals a month – today, they see 25 to 30 youths a month. “Definitely more than a two-fold increase in referrals,” Thatte said. “There is always somebody waiting.” Campaigns like Do it For Daron – an awareness campaign for recognizing mental illness and reducing stigma – has helped identify many more youth who can benefit from help.

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, May 31, 2012

“You’re told that it will be nine months (on the waitlist),” said Kathy. “And OK, but someone just died. And supposedly the parents didn’t know at all, there were no cues. And here I am, and I’m trying to make things better and I can’t because there’s nobody to help me, nobody to guide me.” Gandy said he hasn’t seen an increase of parents crying wolf, and CHEO truly is seeing more patients who have significant mental health issues coming forward. “When they said that I must have a mental illness, it was right around the time they started Do it For Daron,” Hannah said. “So that was a huge part of my story, being able to realize, and realize that it’s OK. And to realize I needed to get help before it turned into something that I wasn’t able to be in control of.” It’s an increase that has forced every mental health organization in Ottawa to respond and make changes in the way they offer services, including permanent changes to their day-to-day operations. CHEO has stopped taking any elective cases, meaning waitlists for services to support children with ADHD or anxiety disorders have been stretched even further. They’ve hired more crisis workers to cover evenings and weekends and have asked other partners, like family physicians, to provide more mental health care. “We’ve really shifted our resources for acute care, and that’s allowed us to manage the trends,” Gandy said. “It’s robbing Peter to Paul. It’s not like we’re adding new resources.” The Youth Services Bureau (YSB) has been one of the partners to step up to try and fill the gap. Francine Gravelle, director of mental health services at the YSB, has responded with a walk-in clinic

that can help before youths get treatment somewhere like CHEO. “A five month waitlist (at the Royal or CHEO) isn’t realistic,” Gravelle said. “Not all should be waiting when a few (counselling) sessions can provide them with the support they need.” YSB runs a variety of mental health services, including shortterm and long-term counselling, but the walk-in clinic, held twice a week at their Carling Avenue location started in January 2011. First, they went through their own wait-list of clients who wanted access to counselling, before opening up the clinic for others. Originally one day a week, it expanded to two days this past October. “When they wait, their situation deteriorates,” Gravelle said, of the children and youths. “That helped clients, knowing that when they need service, they could just come by.” And it’s been what a large percentage of their clients needed. April 2011 to March 2012 saw 680 clients come to the walk-in – and 67 per cent didn’t need referrals for future services, taking some pressure off CHEO. ‘bumpy ride’

“As one parent said, it’s a bumpy ride,” Gravelle said. The walk-in clinic provides a buffer zone for clients in the grey area between in-crisis and at risk of suicide. Seeking treatment for youth mental health can be tough. “I think this is a great time to be looking at how the different groups and agencies can partner together, and there are solutions,” Gandy said. Resources can be funded through the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, or Ministry of Children

and Youth Services. YSB is funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, while CHEO gets funding through the Ministry of Health. “This whole system is somewhat fragmented,” said Thatte. “So really the parents and the patients don’t know which door to go in, and many times they are referred to different places.” The consensus is that a better network of services needs to be formed to support one another, and to provide integrated care. “The reality is, the system is complicated. It has silos, it’s not easy to navigate,” Gandy said. “How do all these agencies begin to talk to each other to make it easier to get the right service at the right time?” And for Hannah and Kathy, a mother and daughter who spent hours researching and studying the course of treatment, they would like to see prevention taught earlier. Hannah ended up on a nine-month waitlist for CHEO and eventually, after insurance covered some private treatment, was able to get help at the Royal, which had a shorter waitlist. She participates in YouthNet at CHEO, a support group that doesn’t require a doctor’s referral, and runs a gender-specific group session, as well as organizing therapeutic arts and recreation activities. But she thinks that getting to that breaking point where she couldn’t bring herself to get out of bed in the morning – days she can’t even remember – wouldn’t have happened if she had been taught coping strategies in school from an early age. “You don’t just wake up one morning and you’re feeling suicidal. You wake up each morning just feeling a bit worse,” Hannah said. “So I think we need more of what we have. A YouthNet here, YSB centres, walk-in centres in different places.” Gandy said with more resources, not only could youth who haven’t been admitted be treated, but those who are high-risk patients could potentially be discharged sooner. And fundraising for awareness shouldn’t shift focus, Thatte said. But she said they remain hopeful that increased awareness in the community will result in pressure on the government to increase resources. At CHEO, they’ve made almost all the changes they can with the resources they have. But staff are still anxious about future growth, as they expect numbers to continue to rise. “Certainly if it continues to increase at the rate that we’ve seen, it’s not going to be sustainable for us,” said Gandy. A mental health strategy for Canada titled Changing Directions, Changing Lives was recently released, which highlights improving access to the right combination of services and treatments, and an increase in funding to fix the current problem. The report supports partnerships and treatments in a variety of ways, but sums it up in the introduction with one clear statement: the status quo is not an option. CHEO recommends using www. e-mentalhealth.ca as a resource for parents or youth looking for information. The YSB crisis line is available for youth or parents 24-hours a day at 1-877-377-7775 or by email at crisis@ysb.on.ca.

Villa Marconi to host historical centre Kristy Strauss

kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Officials gathered at the future site of a new historical centre that will house archives and research on the internment of Italian Canadians during the Second World War to break ground on May 23 to mark the beginning of construction on the project. “This is a very meaningful project for Ottawa’s Italian Canadians,” said Bob Chiarelli, member of provincial parliament for Ottawa West-Nepean as the groundbreaking ceremony opened. The Italian Canadian Historical Centre will be built at Ottawa’s Villa Marconi and will be built as an expansion of the Villa Marconi library. The start of the project follows the announcement of $243,600 in provincial. The centre has also received funds from community contributions including volunteers and donations, as well as money from the City of Ottawa and federal government. Josephine Palumbo, presi-

tre will ensure that the internment of Italian Canadians is not forgotten and that its his-

tory is captured. “It’s housed in one central location and will be available for many future generations to come,” Palumbo said. She added that the centre will be open to the public and will include examples of achievements and contributions Italian Canadians have made to the country. Chiarelli also gave a personal story of his godfather, who was interned in 1941, and said the centre means something to him personally. “This centre will create a tremendous opportunity for the Italian community to capture all of our history here in Ottawa,” Chiarelli said. “This centre, after it’s completed, is going to be very significant for the Italian community here in Ottawa.” Mario Cuconato, president of Villa Marconi, also helped break the ground for the new historical centre. “It came together,” he said. “It’s a great partnership (from all levels of government) from our perspective.”

EMC news - A heritage designation to protect the Bethany Hope Centre – and its front lawn – received the approval of the city’s planning committee on May 22. The property is owned by the Salvation Army, which sent its regional public relations director, Michael Maidment, to express concerns about limiting future development opportunities by designating the lawn as well as the building. The Salvation Army has no problem with designating the building, but protecting the large swath of green space at the front of the property would reduce the value the church could get as it gears up to sell. While the committee decided to continue with the notice to designate despite Maidment’s request for a delay, Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs put forward an amendment directing the city’s planning and legal staff to discuss potential development opportunities with the Salvation Army with a view to resolving its appeal of the community design plan for the area to the Ontario Municipal Board. Staff will report back to the planning committee on the success of those discussions on July 9. Hobbs is happy to see those

The city’s planning committee has given its approval for a heritage designation for the Bethany Hope Centre. discussions taking place, because city staff had tried unsuccessfully to engage the Salvation Army in a discussion about the possible heritage designation for nine months. Maidment said the city never contacted him or anyone else at the Salvation Army. “I chalk it up to some kind of mistake,” he said. The Salvation Army was hoping to meet with the city this week to “find creative options” that benefit both the city and the charitable organization, Maidment said. It’s important to create some certainty about what could be done with the site when it’s sold in the future, Hobbs said. She wants to see the Salvation Army get a fair value for the property. “They need to recoup what

they can from the property to continue their ministry and not to have that money go somewhere else,” she said, adding that a savvy developer might be able to find a loophole and resell it at a higher value iif the zoning isn’t crystal clear. The heritage designation would only apply to the lawn directly in front of the Bethany Hope building, Hobbs said, so the land to the east could be sold for development. The designation still needs city council’s final approval, and that may not come until after July 9, if the OMB appeal of the community design plan can be resolved before the designation is finalized, Hobbs said. The Salvation Army could still appeal the designation to the OMB separately.

Faking relaxation

I

don’t know how to relax. I come by it honestly on both sides of the family. No one – not my mother, father, brother, aunts, uncles or cousins – can sit contentedly still. Add to that my occupation as a journalist on daily deadlines and you’ll often find me in a state of pent-up anxiety: My mind, of course, stimulated, racing and exhausted; my body twitching from lack of activity. It’s the reason I signed up for a beginner’s relaxation workshop a few weeks ago at a local yoga studio. “Learn how to be calm with Becalm Balls.” I read the poster each afternoon for weeks as I waited for the school bus. Finally, two days before the course, I took the plunge. Maybe, I thought, this could just be the antidote to my natural state of restlessness. Heavily pregnant and, at the time, suffering from a sore sacroiliac, I dug my old hand-me-down yoga mat out of the spare room closet, put on some stretchy pants and a t-shirt that barely covered my belly. Always the procrastinator, I was running late and it looked like rain, so I sprinted the 750 metres to the studio. I walked into the lobby panting and sweating. It was painted soothing

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse shades of green, with a little water feature. I took a deep breath – well, a deep breath for me – and allowed my journalist’s eye to examine the studio. There were six people in the room. They all looked incredibly calm in their yoga pants. One woman was already cross-legged and meditating. That’s when I knew I was in trouble. I caught a glimpse of my oversized self in the mirror: My hair was falling out of the pony tail in wisps, my pregnant belly popping out of the t-shirt, and the bottom of my stretchy pants wet. We had to wait a few moments for a participant who was late – well, later than me. The instructor, a slim, tanned, sixty-something with a soothing voice, told us to just get comfortable. I spent the next 15 minutes pulling various cushions and blankets out of the cupboard, alternating between leaning against the wall and lying on my side with a pillow

between my knees. Eventually I stood up and started pacing, while massaging my sacroiliac. All the while, that woman was still cross-legged and meditating. Finally, the course began. The owner of the studio – a participant in the course – tried to help me find a suitable starting position, while we listened to the guest instructor. He was explaining the purpose of the balls, how they were to “hammock” one’s head, sitting on two very specific places at the back of the skull. A short history of sacro-cranial therapy and an hour later, we were ready to lie on our backs – not a comfortable position for a pregnant lady with sacroiliac problems – and place the two Nerf-like balls on a string in the magical position. “These balls will help you go so deep,” promised the instructor, “you’ll feel like you’re in China.” I placed the two balls on the back of my head and lay

EMC news - Ottawa Lottery and Gaming Corporation chairman Paul Godfrey says any potential casino in Ottawa should be built “where the customers are” to ensure it is successful. Godfrey, also president of Postmedia Networks – owners of the Ottawa Citizen – and former chief executive of the Toronto Blue Jays, was the keynote speaker at the Mayor’s Breakfast Series on May 24. While he emphasized the city would have the final say about a location for a new casino, Godfrey said OLG’s research indicates the capital region could support two casinos: a new one in Ottawa and Casino Lac-Leamy in Hull. Godfrey indicated he thinks the OLG slots at the RideauCarleton Raceway are too far of a trek for area customers. “While the slots have been successful … people have to decide whether to drive out there or to Hull, which is much closer,” Godfrey said. But when it comes to the possibility of a new casino in Ottawa, Godfrey said the city will have the final say. He said there will be more information about new casinos coming out in the next few weeks.

down. Nothing happened. I adjusted them slightly and lay down again. Nothing. The instructor noticed I was fiddling and interrupting others’ journeys to China, so he came over to help me. Gently, he adjusted the balls and felt the back of my head for the two magic spots. He whispered, “Is that it?” “No,” I said. He wiggled them a little bit. “How about now?” “No.” He removed them completely and touched my head again, and repositioned me on top of the balls. “Okay, I found the spot. How does that feel?” “Great,” I lied. I felt nothing, but sometimes in the heat of the moment, you just want to make the guy feel like he’s pleased you and allow him to move on. I lay there for 20 minutes, my eyes closed, the balls hammocking my head, my sacroiliac aching under the weight of my belly, my mind racing through my schedule of upcoming deadlines. When the lights went up, I smiled, thanked the instructor for a lovely time – it wasn’t his fault he couldn’t satisfy me – and sprinted home in the rain. “Mommy, you don’t look very relaxed,” said my five-year-old when I raced through the front door sopping wet. “Nope,” I said, “but I brought you a present.” His eyes lit up as I handed him the balls on a string. And I went to change into something a little more comfortable.

Thank you to participating schools, neighbourhood associations, community organizations, businesses, families, friends and individuals who participated in the challenge. We hope to see you all again for our annual Fall Cleaning the Capital campaign in September 2012. Thank you to our many sponsors who made our campaign such a great success.

May is a busy time of year for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. This past week the Board of Trustees were pleased to pass a balanced operating budget of $794.4 million. This money will be used to operate 147 schools for 70,000 students for the next year. How are our schools affected by the provincial financial situation? This year’s School Board budget received provincial funding for the programs we already have in place, such as the new full day kindergarten program, and special education. We also used a small portion of our own reserves funds to balance our budget and pay for the programs that have contributed to our students` growth, such as special education programs. This spring’s provincial budget contained a number of cutbacks that will have a negative impact on our schools. The biggest impact will be the proposed two year wage freeze on all school board employees (including teachers). At this time we do not know what will happen during the labour negotiations to deal with this government-initiated wage freeze. As a Trustee it is my hope that the negotiations will be resolved before the new school year begins so as not to impact on our students. School Activities in Bay Ward As School Trustee for Zone 4 I represent the English public schools within the municipal boundaries of Bay Ward. This spring there was many exciting activities within our schools. Woodroffe High School put on an excellent production of the musical ”Hairspray” that got rave reviews with excellent singing and dancing. I was also delighted to attend Woodroffe High School’s multicultural potluck banquet. Families of all backgrounds showed off their culinary skills and shared a meal together. There was also a multicultural fashion show and plenty of dancing and singing. Severn Public School had a similar multicultural banquet the same evening. Lakeview Public School had its annual Mayfair fundraiser last week that included a bike parade in the neighbourhood. It was great to see students riding their bikes in a safe controlled environment. Bayshore Public School put on an exceptional art show that showed off the talents and pride of these students as they showed their artistic skills. As a member of the School Board’s Art Advisory Council I understand how important the arts are as part of a child’s growth and education. The arts should not be considered just an extra. Children learn so much from discovering their own creative potential in the arts. Upcoming community school events This Friday June 1, from 4:30 to 8 pm, Woodroffe Avenue Public School will have its annual Spring Fling, which has been a major attraction for many years. I encourage local families to attend and support this event. On Saturday June 2, from 8 am to 1 pm, Severn Avenue Public School will be having their annual Garage Sale. Come out and find some treasures and visit this inspiring hardworking school. Trustee Theresa Kavanagh trying out a hoolahoop at the Lakeview Public School’s Mayfair.

A case of putting off the hard work

D

espite a recent vote against a proposal by Mayor Jim Watson to look at shrinking the number of representatives around the council table at city hall, councillors should start taking a reappraisal of Ottawa’s current ward system seriously. Watson’s proposal to initiate a study of the city’s ward system in comparison with other municipalities, based on a campaign promise to reduce the number of councillors,

may have been abrupt, but the problem the mayor is aiming to address looms over city hall all the same. Some of the councillors who voted against the proposal cited a formal review of Ottawa’s ward boundaries in 2015 as reason enough to delay tinkering with council seats. Others suggested the $250,000 cost of an early review would be a waste of money. But perhaps they’re just putting off the hard work for another day.

Ottawa’s current ward system, born of amalgamation, would be exposed as inefficient under any reasonable scrutiny. When compared with other large Canadian municipalities, Ottawans are over-represented. On average, each councillor in this city represents 40,154 residents, significantly lower than an average of the top 11 comparable muncipalities in both size and form of government, which stands at 53,346 residents for each councillor.

For the sake of further comparison, Calgary has the fewest elected representatives by population among the 11 cities, with one councillor for every 78,345 residents. On the low end is London, Ont., which has one councillor for every 26,154 citizens. Toronto (1 to 59,433), Brampton, Ont. (1 to 52,391) and Surrey, B.C. (1 to 58,531) fall around the average. Some simple arithmetic reveals that for Ottawa to move towards the average,

about six councillor positions would need to be eliminated, a number that is close to what the mayor had suggested. Why look at axing councillors? There are several compelling reasons. Ottawa is changing rapidly, with significant growth occurring in urban, suburban and rural areas of the city. The current system was distilled from the former municipalities, boundaries that no longer hold the same meaning as they did in 2001. At a minimum, taking a look at ward boundaries to see if they still make sense would be a useful exercise. Each councillor represents added cost. While it is hard

to put a price on democracy, clearly some cities are able to do more with less. Shouldn’t Ottawa’s council at least consider if it’s possible to do the same? And while the current council has avoided much of the cacophony that characterized the last, fewer voices around the council horseshoe may in fact make it easier to be heard above the din. Democratic reform is unpleasant business that no one, from self-interested politicians to disinterested voters, ever seems willing to tackle. But if councillors aren’t interested in considering such an exercise now, will they be any more ready in 2015?

Leaving room for nature in the woods CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

A

s you look forward to the next big long weekend – Canada Day – you might want to reconsider your attitude toward fireworks. For some people, the long weekend just past was the first time they became aware of the notion that fireworks are not all fun and games. Perhaps it was because there were more of them this year. Oddly, given the supposed dire conditions of the economy, cottagers engaged in expensive competitions as to who could make the loudest noises for the longest time. For three nights, it was as if the lake were under attack. It may still be going on, for all we know. What do we learn from this? Among other things, some people still have too much money. As recently as a few years ago, the summer fireworks season was small-scale and relatively harmless. A family would go down by the lake and set off a few, then stop after a few minutes. But now there are more families with more fireworks and a kind of war of the eardrums has set in. If it was just us, just people, we could endure it, even enjoy it up to a point. But there is more and more evidence that fireworks do more than disturb the peace. They also frighten wild animals, for which fireworks season is nesting time. The good clean fun fireworks lovers are having around the lake sets off a frenzy of fearful activity amongst the animals. According to a recent cottage newsletter, fireworks can be louder than gunshots or jet plane engines, so the terrified reaction of animals is not surprising, especially since many of them have a more

acute sense of hearing than we do. Animal rights groups have been aware of this for years, but the idea has not penetrated the public consciousness until recently. This is odd because dog owners are keenly aware of the problem. The Internet is full of advice to dog owners about how to deal with the intense fear that many dogs have. Dog owners are urged to play loud recorded noises in the weeks leading up to a major holiday to get dogs used to it. The owners are offered various medications they can offer their pets. The option of not having fireworks goes unmentioned. Human beings, of course, don’t mean any harm. We don’t set out to make life miserable for animals. However, we accomplish that quite easily just by being ourselves. We set out to have fun and don’t really notice that anyone or anything is inconvenienced. Or, for that matter, killed. A recent CBC radio documentary focused on the number of wolves and bears that are slaughtered each year around Banff National Park. And how do we accomplish this? With guns? With traps? No, we hit them with cars and trains. More and more of us take those highways every year, where we stand a good chance of running over something that didn’t expect a highway to be there or, for that matter, know what a highway is. The irony of it is much of the killing is being done by people in a hurry to get to the park so they can see the animals. Canada is not, relative to others, a crowded country. Still, people are moving into spaces that recently belonged mostly to animals. The animals are not used to having people around and don’t know what to do. When people begin acting like people – that is, driving cars around and making loud noises – nothing good can come out of it. The kinds of recommendations you see to cure this generally involve banning people from being people. That hardly ever works. Persuading people to think is a more promising avenue, although hardly fool-proof. For a supposedly sentient species, thinking is not always what we do best.

This Week’s poll question

Previous poll summary

Was council right to reject the mayor’s ward boundary review proposal?

What is the best strategy for eliminating weeds growing in your yard?

A) Yes. There’s already a review scheduled for 2015. What’s the rush?

A) One word – pesticides, and I’m not talking organic.

B) Yes. At a cost of $250,000, it’s not worth the money.

B) One word – pesticides, and I would only use organic ones.

C) No. We’ve got a few too many councillors on the city payroll – it’s time to take a hard look at that situation.

C) I’ll follow the example of my 29% father and my father’s father – just head outdoors and start yanking them out of the ground.

D) Councillors rejecting a study of their own jobs? Doesn’t surprise me at all.

The garage sale, Ju said, will give a new Canadians a good opportunity to do some shopping. “For most local Canadians, (garage sales) are popular, but for a lot of cultures, they don’t have that kind of concept,” Ju said. “(Participants can get something at) a very

EMC news - Jon Tenthorey wants his students to understand problems on a global scale – and maybe break a Guinness World Record in the process. That’s why the Nepean High School teacher, in partnership with World Vision, organized the Amazing Walk for Water event that took place at the school on May 23. The walk included about 500 students who walked a course while balancing a container of water on their head in hopes of raising both awareness of water issues and setting a Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously carrying water on their heads. Students from Broadview Public School also took part in the event. “We officially can’t say (the record) has been broken,” said Tenthorey, adding that the world record was set last year for 282 people. “But it’s been an unofficial attempt at a world record.” Tenthorey, who runs a leadership program at the school, wanted to get students involved in a real-world activity where they could have an impact. As part of the event, rep-

Those students then gave a talk to students at Broadview about clean water. He said the initiative is “multilayered” with more awareness and education being aimed at students when it comes to clean water. Tenthorey said it should take a few more weeks to get confirmation back from the Guinness World Records that they have broken the record, and will be sending all documentation to California for certification. But even if the school doesn’t set a world record,

Tenthorey said all that matters is that awareness as been raised about access to clean water in other countries. “The issue is awareness,” said Tenthorey. “(Achieving a world record) is just icing on the cake.” He also said he hopes the exercise will teach students about how much water they consume at home. “The biggest thing is for us to be aware,” he said. “I always tell my kids, I’m not asking you to feel guilty about the water we drink, but have an appreciation for what we have. If they can have a bigger perspective, I think that’s the biggest thing.”

Bayshore to get $200M facelift jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news - After more than 30 years in the city’s west end, Bayshore Shopping Centre doesn’t want to show its age. The mall will be getting a $200-million facelift from its owners Ivanhoé Cambridge. The shopping centre’s expansion – announced at a redcarpet event at the mall on May 25 – will take place over the next three-and-a-half years. The plans include boosting the retail space by 14,900 square metres and adding 56 new stores, with the notable addition of U.S. retail chain Target. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli said the company’s investment in the city is an example of economic recovery. “The manager of the mall is like the mayor of a small city,” Chiarelli said, noting the mall employs 3,000 people in fulland part-time positions. “The addition of another 400 jobs is great news for the city as a whole and for the west end particularly,” he said. The mall will remain open during the phased construction. Most of the expansion will take place on the northern side of the property, in place of

“It’s not like they run twice a day at peak hours, they run all day long,” Reilander said. Kitchissippi Coun. Kather-

an existing parking tower. The makeover will mean moving and expanding the food court and nearly tripling its seating area as well as increasing parking space by 10 per cent in a new five-level garage. “We have been working for a great number of years and we’re excited about bringing this to you,” Bayshore general manager Denis Pelletier said during the groundbreaking. The announcement ended with the beginning of demolition of the north-side, secondlevel parking platform. “This announcement is great news for the community that relies on jobs that are within walking distance,” Bay Coun. Mark Taylor said. “Bayshore has been a great neighbour and member of the community for many years and we look forward to continuing that relationship.” While there will be roughly 50 new stores calling Bayshore home, the only one specifically named was Target, which will take over the lease of the existing Zellers store. “These improvements will generate significant economic benefits and ensure that Bayshore Shopping Centre can continue to be a strong partner to the community,” Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said.

More closures as Bronson work progresses michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The intersection of Gladstone and Bronson avenues will be closed to traffic starting on July 3 for six

weeks as the city continues the work of replacing aging water mains along the major downtown thoroughfare. The two-year, $30-million reconstruction of Bronson Av-

enue is currently underway, with the city having completely closed a section of the busy road between Catherine and Somerset streets on March 27. Gladstone had remained a

The back-story on back pain.

By: Your local Family Physiotherapy Team Second only to the common cold for being the most frequent cause of time off work, back pain always seems to be lurking around the corner. 85% of adults between the ages of 30 and 65 will have back pain at some point in their lives that will cause them to seek advice from a health care provider. The most common causes of low back pain include: 1) Lumbar strain/sprains 2) Disc herniations (discs act as cushions and shock absorbers between each individual vertebrae) Strains and sprainsoccur when either muscles or ligaments abnormally stretch

or tear. A disc herniation is when a disc ‘bulges’ out from between vertebrae and put pressure on the spinal nerves and cord. Symptoms of a disc bulge with nerve compression may include sharp shooting pain, numbness, tingling,and weakness into the legs. Both injuries are likely to occur as a result of over use, poor conditioning, and improper body mechanics while lifting and stressing the spine. Most episodes of back pain last a few days and are resolved within a few weeks. The first 1-2 days are the most painful and it is recommended to have your back evaluated by a healthcare practitioner. A visit to your local family

physiotherapist can assist with treating not only your symptoms but also the cause of injury. Through exercise prescription, education, manual therapy and therapeutic modalities, Physiotherapy can help speed up the healing process, prevent re-injury and get you back on track!

through street, but will close on July 3. According to a traffic study done in 2009, the street typically sees nearly 20,000 vehicles per day drive through from Christie Street to Gladstone, while more than 26,000 vehicles per day drive through from Gladstone to Catherine Street. Vehicles will be rerouted during the road closures. At a recent Centretown Citizens Community Association meeting on May 14, Bruce Kenny, the city’s senior project manager, updated residents on the project. Kenny admitted there have been challenges, but all in all, so far the construction project has been going along successfully. “There is no question, we knew there would be an im-

Ziad Ghadban, manager of design and construction, said other measures will include a reduction in the crossing distance across Gladstone and Somerset to help improve pedestrian safety. There will also be traffic signal will be installed at Arlington Avenue.  More trees will be added to the street, all in an effort to help identify to drivers a community-friendly area requiring slower speed. With the amount of concrete on the street currently, the trees will be watered through soil remediation tactics. The completion date for major work in this section of the project is Dec. 30.

Mrs. Beam builds ‘moose’ of a scarecrow MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories

R0011422198

an old straw hat that had seen better days and a print dress that barely covered her wide girth. She went right to the garden. She took one look at what passed for a scarecrow, a slat of wood stuck in the ground with an old plaid shirt of Father’s hanging over it and made clucking noises like a Leghorn hen. “That wouldn’t scare away a hummingbird,” she said. It was obvious she wasn’t going to leave until a decent scarecrow was in our garden. She hollered at Everett who was cleaning out the henhouse. She pointed to the drive shed, crooked a finger at

Everett and they both headed for the open door where Father kept his tools and odd pieces of wood. Mrs. Beam pointed to two long pieces two-by-four and ordered Everett to nail them in the shape of a cross. It was so big, I wondered how he was going to get it out of the shed. But between him and Mrs. Beam, it was lugged over to the garden. On the way out of the drive shed, Mrs. Beam grabbed a shovel. She went right to the centre of the garden, between the rows of green beans and carrots. She started to dig and when the hole was deep enough to her liking, she

ordered Everett to stand the thing up. She anchored it with dirt, gave it a couple of good whacks with the shovel and told Mother to get some of Father’s work clothes out of the house. “And bring a straw hat too,” she bellowed. Mrs. Beam had grabbed a hammer and nails from the drive shed and nailed some overalls to the two-by-fours, a plain shirt was put on the cross bar, and the straw hat anchored to the top. It looked like a 10-foot giant standing in the middle of the garden. She assured Mother nothing would come near the garden. A scarecrow that size, she said, would scare off a moose. The day passed. Occasionally I would take a peek out into the garden and it seemed to be working. There wasn’t a bird or rabbit in sight. Father, who didn’t believe in scarecrows, never said a word other than he hoped Mrs. Beam hadn’t used the good nails he had just bought.

The next morning, just after breakfast, I went out to take a look at the scarecrow. It was still there all right. But on one of the boards representing an arm, there were four crows and on the other outstretched arm a squirrel was eating a belly full of something. I ran in the house to tell

t looked like we were going to have a bountiful garden that year. The tomatoes were already high enough to be staked and we were picking away at the bright green lettuce leaves for sandwiches. It was when the peas and green beans started to sprout that Mother grew concerned that if she didn’t do something fast, the crows, squirrels and rabbits would be feeding on them before we did. It was a problem that had to be discussed with Mrs. Beam. She was the one everyone in the Northcote area went to if the issue couldn’t be handled on their own. She delivered babies and treated all minor illnesses. And she generally could give advice on everything from making soap to who were the best customers when peddling produce in town. Yes, it was time to call on Mrs. Beam. She came, wearing her usual regalia: gum rubbers,

Mother. She headed for the garden waving a big tea towel in the general direction of the scarecrow. The birds just looked at her. Mother said she thought she should call Mrs. Beam again. Father said to save her energy. Gardens had been planted on that farm for three generations, and you just put up with were crows, squirrels and rabbits. “Mrs. Beam better stay with delivering babies,” he said under his breath.

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, May 31, 2012

While a leaner council was alluded to during the election, the mayor has stayed mostly mum on the idea until his monthly online “Ask Jim” chat on May 17. After responding to a resident’s question about his promise to reduce council’s size, the idea picked up steam. On Tuesday at 5:30 p.m., Watson sent a memo to councillors informing them that he would ask for council’s rules to be waived the next day so councillors could discuss and vote on whether to study the possibility of reducing the number of city wards and councillors. Watson said he knew the issue would be divisive and personal to councillors. “It’s a bit like when you’re asked to vote on your own salary,” Watson said. “It’s a bit uncomfortable,” he added, asking councillors to “put that aside” for the debate. Councillors were concerned about the estimated $250,000 cost for the ward boundary review and said that there are more important issues facing the city right now, including the Lansdowne Park redevelopment and the upcoming light-rail transit system. The 15 councillors who voted against the idea said residents are not clamoring for the change. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli said he has not received one call or email asking for the change. Councillors agreed, saying any savings would be clawed back because councillors would require more staff to keep up with the increased workload, or there would be more pressure on the city’s bureaucracy. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt, one of the most outspoken opponents to the mayor’s idea, said shrinking council could reduce representation in the rural areas. Even councillors who supported the idea during the election, including Bay Ward Coun. Mark Taylor, said the rushed way it was brought directly to city council turned him off the concept. Taylor said he “notionally supports” the idea of making council leaner, but “not at this time and in this way,” he said, adding that he doesn’t see a compelling reason to push the review up from 2015.

scotiabaNk placE 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Food ‘n’ Stuff • 2 tbsp. finely-grated fresh orange peel • 1/3 cup raisins • 2 cups flour • 1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast TOPPING

• 1-2 tbsp. extra light-tasting olive oil • 2 tsp. white sugar Place all the ingredients (except the ones for the topping) into the bread machine in the order given. Select the “dough” cycle, and start the machine. When the dough is finished, turn it out on a lightlyfloured surface, then pat it into a circle 30 centimetres in diameter. Lightly oil a round pizza pan or a cookie sheet. Fold the dough circle in half as you would a pie crust. Transfer it to the pan, placing the dough so that it

covers one half of the pan. Unfold the dough to make the full circle. Cover with a damp tea towel and set aside to rise until doubled. Depending on the warmth of your kitchen, this can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. With your finger or the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over the dough. For the topping, lightly brush the surface of the dough with the one to two tbsp. of light olive oil, then sprinkle with the sugar. Bake at 400 F (200 C) for 15 to 18 minutes, until the bread is a golden brown. Transfer the bread to a cake rack to cool slightly before serving. Cut into wedges, and serve warm. This bread will keep fresh for two to three days wrapped in plastic, but the sugar topping will soften.

hen you hear of focaccia bread, you usually think of a bread topped with rosemary or caramelized onions. Savoury versions such as these are traditional with this popular flat bread. Focaccia can also be made with sweet ingredients, however, for an entirely different flavour. Experimenting one day, I decided to add freshly-grated orange rind and raisins directly to the dough while it was being mixed in the bread machine. Once the dough was shaped into a circle and ready for the oven, I brushed the top with olive oil, then sprinkled it with a bit of sugar. The focaccia smelled wonderful as it baked and tasted even better. Focaccia bread is very easy to make using a bread machine to prepare the dough.

Gold and Silver Coins Selling for Highest Prices in Over 30 Years Due to Weak Economy and It’s Happening Right Here in Nepean/Ottawa West! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER

ICC will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1968 and U.S. coins made before 1970. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICC members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1968. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1968 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors also known as ICC. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICC member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICC and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all U.S. half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICC. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICC will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased. Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewellery, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at record high prices. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot – it has been an unknown R0011428182-0531

Ottawa Fury women, men prepare for 2012 season Eddie Rwema

eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC sports - She is a bigtime player that scores bigtime goals who dominated every game she played last season and Mallory Outerbridge is one of the 26 players who will play on the Ottawa Fury women’s team this season. She was the 2011 WLeague most valuable player and league’s top scorer becoming the highest singleseason scorer in Fury history with 17 goals, which helped the team finish the regular season with a league-high 37 points. “I am thrilled to be back,” said Outerbridge. “I came back because I had an absolute blast last year and I want to have another good season because Ottawa Fury is great place to play.” She led the Fury to a perfect 25-game unbeaten record in the regular season and she looks forward to a new season. Outerbridge has always been a team player and attributes her success to the team behind her. Even when named MVP, she shares that accomplishment with the team, saying it was a “team effort, a team trophy”. Unveiling his 26-player

roster at a press conference on May 24, reigning W-League Coach of the Year Dom Oliveri said the club’s ultimate goal this season is to win the championship. “We are one of the best WLeague clubs in the league that hasn’t one the championship,” said Oliveri. Ottawa Fury owner John Pugh hopes to building on a solid track record of strong regular seasons and playoff runs, to take their success to the next level this season. “Today we look forward to 2012 and beyond,” said Pugh Over the past 10 years, Pugh said the team has accomplished a lot and that there is a lot in the horizon for soccer fans in Ottawa. “These are exciting times for soccer in the city,” he said. Soccer fans in Ottawa will have another extra reason to celebrate this summer as Ottawa hosts the finals of the 2012 USL W-League Championship, one of the most important women’s championships in North America. “There’s quite a treat in store for soccer fans and what a way to showcase our city,” said Pugh. According to Pugh, there isn’t anything fulfilling like

winning the championship before your home crowd. “Let’s bring the finals back to Ottawa,” he said. “What could be better than having a chance to clinch the championship in front of our own fans?” On the men’s Premier Development League side, coach Stephen O’Kane is returning to the club for his second stint as head coach of the Fury men after a threeyear hiatus. “Steve took us on a great ride in 2009,” said Pugh. “He put together an unbeaten 12-0 in a full season, only the seventh time the team has gone unbeaten in the history of the league. “After stepping aside for personal reasons, we are delighted he is able to return to the helm.” Unveiling his 25-man roster, O’Kane said the players he recruited this season are a passionate, hungry and determined bunch that are proven winners and want to continue their development and winning ways here in Ottawa “I am here to learn how to win and how to compete again,” said O’Kane who guided the Fury to its first playoff berth in 2009.

Your Children’s Aid Home Alone

Summer is almost here, and families are preparing for holidays. It’s hard to believe that the end of the school year is only 4 weeks away, and for some, planning for child care over the summer holidays can be extremely stressful, complicated, and expensive. Especially challenging for parents is finding appropriate care arrangements for children over the age of 10. The ultimate question at this time of year, is ‘at what age can a child be left home alone or to care for others’? Leaving a child unattended under the age of 10 is in contravention of the criminal code, and the CAS of Ottawa does not recommend that parents leave a child under 12 to care for other children. Although the law has determined that children over the age of 10 can legally be left unsupervised, it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that regardless of their age, children under the age of 16 are safe or in the very least make provisions for their safety. This means ensuring a proper readiness and safety planning for children or youth who are left alone. Making this decision can be stressful for parents, who need to consider a wide range of factors when determining when their child is ready to be home alone. For example, is your child able to make sound decisions as it relates to their ability to handle emergency situations? Are their surroundings safe? How long will they be left alone? For some parents who consider these factors, it may become evident that even their 14 year old is not ready. For older youth for whom being left alone can lead to boredom related risky behaviours, there are a wide range of challenging and engaging recreational activities in the city to keep them busy. Involving teens and preteens in the planning of their summer activities may also help to ensure they will have fun and stay safe throughout the summer For more information on leaving children home alone call 613-747-7800.

EMC entertainment - Four Ottawa authors will gather at Collected Works Bookstore on June 1 to read excerpts from their work and to interact with readers. The authors, who are published by Ottawa’s newest small press Deux Voiliers Publishing, will be part of the publishing company’s first open house that will be open to book lovers and prospective contributors. Following the readings, there will be an information session for prospective writ-

ers, copy editors, graphic and video artists and others who are interested in possibly joining the DVP collaborative publishing initiative. Chris Turner, author of Tales of Other Worlds, will give a reading from his anthology of fantasy and science fiction short stories. An author of four full-length novels and two anthologies, Collected Works also carries his other works of fiction published by Innersky Publishing in Wakefield. Stephen Lorne Bennett will give a reading from his mys-

tery novel, Last of the Ninth, which takes place in secondcentury Rome. Bennett is a world traveller and diplomat and brings the political intrigue of Roman politics to life alongside the rough-andtumble world of the Roman foot soldier. Brendan Ray will read from Marching to Byzantium, which looks at the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks. Ray, who has lived in Istanbul, challenges the Turkish and Greek versions of the end of the Eastern Roman Empire and rise of the Otto-

man Empire. Finally Con Cú will read from Soldier, Lily, Peace and Pearls. His book is a tale of human resilience that features two young Vietnamese refugees, Quan and Minh Chau, who meet in a refugee camp in Malaysia. The story blends the exoticism of Southeast Asia with discovery and renewal in Canada. For more information about the event, visit: www.deuxvoiliers.com, or contact Ian Shaw at 613-302-6114 or via email at deuxvoiliers@gmail. com.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, start thinking about curbing your spending. Your finances are in trouble if you don’t make some changes. More is going out than is coming into your accounts.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a good night is in store this week. The night brings rewards you did not expect. Working hard yields more than financial success.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, there’s not much you can do about the current situation. Complaining about things won’t solve anything, so why waste the breath? Better news is on the horizon.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Trust your instincts, Gemini. Someone who seems like they have your best interests at heart really may have ulterior motives. Heed Capricorn’s sage advice. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you may feel like you’re the only one keeping the ship from sinking. However, this is not the case. Behindthe-scenes work is taking place, too. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, it seems as if drama is always following you. That’s because you tend to be the life of the party or prefer all eyes be on you. Think about being less conspicuous. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it’s hard to keep friends if you are overly critical of the way they live their lives. Remember, no one is perfect — including you. Keep an open mind.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

Aries, financial constraints could delay the start of a new project that you have wanted to do for quite a while. Don’t fall into despair; you just may have to save a little longer.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

Taurus, learn all the facts before you get pulled into gossip. Otherwise you may become part of the problem of disseminating the wrong type of information.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, though you are naturally intuitive, this week you may have a burst of purely psychic energy that cannot be ignored. You may find vivid dreams are part of the deal.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 0708

Cancer, you are feeling very passionate and you have deep and rich emotions this week. It is all about developing an even more solid relationship with your partner.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 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!

Don’t feel tempted to give anyone a pep talk, Leo. You may just be wasting your time. The person you have in mind might not be too receptive to advice.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

Virgo, thoughts of love and romance could distract you and make it hard to do your job. Don’t be tempted to spend all the time on the phone.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Patience is a virtue, Aries. The best will be in store for you later in the week. There’s not much chance for adventure Monday or Tuesday, but things pick up on Wednesday.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

You have an inherent ability to read a person’s thoughts and motives, Libra. You may find that people’s feelings simply jump out toward you. This ability could be taxing, though.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Emotional issues with a family member could leave you seeking an escape route, Scorpio. This may be just what you need to clear your mind and get back on track.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Sagittarius, you are feeling less inhibited this week, which may lead to a loose tongue. Try not to offend because you aren’t thinking things through but operating on impulse.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Capricorn, stress on the job could have you thinking about quitting. But a look at your finances may tell you this isn’t a wise idea at the time. Stick with it for a little while longer.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

Mistakes from the past could come back to haunt you, Aquarius. For a few days you may be low on self- confidence. Lie low if you don’t trust your judgement just yet.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Pisces, though you’re usually physically active, this week you can benefit from just taking a small break. Focus on recharging.

PET OF THE WEEK WinniE

LEO

Winnie is a spayed female, black and white Border Collie and hound mix. She is about eight months old and was surrendered to the shelter by her owner. Winnie loves to be by your side and she’s still learning the right way to do things. She loves to run and play and she has boundless energy and a joyful spirit. This spunky girl gets along best with people eight years and older who are comfortable with a bigger dog – she is still learning her manners and must learn to curb her enthusiasm. Winnie needs a family who can give her structure, exercise, and a chance to socialize with other dogs to be more comfortable with them.

Leo is a neutered male, brown tabby Domestic Longhair cat who is about seven years old. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner. When he first came to the OHS his hair was severely matted, so we shaved him down into a lion cut to suit his name. His long hair is growing back now – which is a good signal that it is time he found his forever home! Leo loves to have his ears rubbed and to tell you about his day. He’ll be a good guard cat and keep watch over your home with his inquisitive mind and a regal presence. He’s a strong-willed, spirited cat and would get along best with new owners who appreciate that he is an independently-minded feline who loves being petted, but who can also be a rough player. Leo is a solitary kind of feline who would rather not be in a household with small children or other cats.

When is the right time to make a tough decision?

Pet ownership brings many joys, but also tough decisions. Your pet needs love, care and devotion, and may sometimes require an ethical or moral choice be made on its behalf. Your companion animal cannot tell you when he or she is in pain and suffering, and as your pet reaches the senior stage in life, it’s important to know your pet, his or her body language, and to have a plan ready so that a tough decision is not put off too long..

Miss Carmen Our chihuahua is a little diva, but she is also much loved, not only by us, but by everyone who meets her...and her fans around the world. I’m sending you two of our favourite photos of her and will let you choose which you like best. Hi my name is Carmen. I’m also known as Miss Carmen, the Steampunk Chihuahua. I’m the mascot for Steampunk Canada. I have friends all over the world. My favourite places to be are in the backyard in the sun, or under a blanket snuggled up when it’s cold.

Time to make a grooming appointment

Palliative care for animals is much the same as palliative care for humans — you’re not just letting a dying pet live out its remaining days, you’re making sure that your pet’s suffering is alleviated and that it is comfortable all the while.

Your veterinarian will play a large role in the process. If you don’t have a vet, it’s your duty to get one so you can make informed decisions about the health of your animal. During the initial stages of a pet’s illness, if your veterinarian does not raise the topic of humane euthanasia, it doesn’t mean the topic is off limits. Some veterinarians may not broach the subject first, so make sure you initiate the conversation. Deciding to provide palliative care to a pet is something the whole family must agree on. The choice can be a costly one — both emotionally and financially — so everyone must be on board. Palliative care is an unpredictable process. You will have to be prepared to make quick decisions if your pet is in pain, or if his condition changes suddenly. Remember that it’s your job is to make the best choices for your pet, and that may not always involve continuing with palliative care until the

very end.

If you have decided to follow the palliative care route, you are responsible for recognizing suffering and acting to alleviate distress. Realize the role of guilt. Don’t avoid or delay humane euthanasia because you feel guilty. Remember that it can be the right decision for your pet in the end. Realize that doing nothing is not an option. If you choose to administer palliative care to your animal, remember it doesn’t mean allowing a pet to die at home without proper care and attention. To do so would be neglectful and you could be criminally charged for not providing adequate care or for willfully causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal. Most importantly, you need to ask yourself who you are doing this for. As heartbreaking as losing a pet may be, you should always be sure that you are placing your pet’s welfare ahead of your own emotions.

If your pet has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, or has begun to suffer increasingly from age-related ailments, humane euthanasia may eventually be the only option you have. Most people want to have as much time as possible with their pet before they have to say a final goodbye. Many believe that they can provide their pet with a good quality of life for some time to come. Your role is to recognize suffering and to provide care and relief to your animal.

If you are thinking about palliative care for your dying pet, there are many practical issues that you should think about, and many questions that you should ask yourself before you decide to go this route.
