EMC news - Now that the Ottawa River Parkway has been renamed to honour Canada’s first prime minister Sir John A. Macdonald, one group is calling on the National Capital Commission to “restore the equilibriumâ€? and rename the Rockcliffe Parkway after George-Étienne Cartier. Immanuel Giulea, founder of the SociĂŠtĂŠ MacDonaldCartier Society, said he has been waiting to see if the Macdonald renaming would go through before issuing a call to bestow the same level of honour on the second “father of confederation:â€? Cartier. Giula and his group has spearheaded a campaign to block the renaming of Wellington Street to Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard in 2010 based on the historic value and longevity of the Wellington name. Giula said that while his group recommended renaming the Airport Parkway leading to the Macdonald-Cartier International Airport after the first prime minister would be the best plan to honour Macdonald, applying his name to the Ottawa River Parkways works fine as well. “We are also hopeful they won’t forget Cartier,â€? who represented the interests of French Canadians during confederation, said Giula, a Montreal resident.

EMC news - Mike Nowosad was surprised and humbled when he found out he was receiving the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal through his service with the Canadian 4-H Council. “There are a lot of deserving people out there,� said Nowosad, chief executive of the Canadian 4-H Council. “When I see pictures of recipients, they’re people who are saving lives - and I’m not sure I’m deserving.�

The humble Westboro resident was awarded the medal at a banquet dinner at 4-H’s annual general meeting which was held in St. John’s, N.L.

Westboro invited to join second Byron Park parade Byron Pathway Parade. Last year, the first parade took place as part of a rally for the soon-to-be-developed convent site when developer Ashcroft was eyeing the park as a potential cut-through into the site. It also served as a fundraiser for the Ontario Municipal Board appeal against the development on the convent lands. This year the parade comes as Ashcroft is re-submitting a re-zoning request to build a permanent road through the park. Grace said the annual parade is also important as a celebration of the Westboro community. “I was so impressed with how the community rallied and I wanted to celebrate that community spirit,” she said. “We love this path.” Just like last year, Grace said, youngsters are welcome to dress up in their favourite costumes since it’s a familyfriendly event.

Baird announces Tunney’s Pasture talks Public will have a say on master plan for area kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Ahead of any potential redevelopment of its sprawling west-end campus, the federal government said the public will be invited to provide input into the future of Tunney’s Pasture. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, who is also the MP for Ottawa West-Nepean, made the announcement at the Jean Talon Building at Tunney’s Pasture on Aug. 20. “We’re very fortunate to live in a beautiful, prosperous, livable green city and Tunney’s Pasture is part of that,” said Baird. Public Works and Government Services Canada is completing a master plan that will

guide the future growth and development of the site and public consultations will be part of developing a 25-year vision for Tunney’s Pasture. “It’s crucial we get this plan right for Canadians coast to coast to coast, and it’s just as important for the national capital region,” Baird said. As part of the public consultations on the Tunney’s Pasture master plan project, members of the public will be invited to public information sessions. The first open house, which will take place on Sept. 17, will present two possible development options for the site and will offer a forum for public comment. Baird said residential and commercial developments are “absolutely” a possibility.

“Think of the Ottawa you want in the future and how Tunney’s Pasture fits in that,” he said. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs said she’s happy to see there will be a period of public consultation on the future of the site. The public information session will take place Sept. 17 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Jean Talon Building Conference Room at 170 Tunney’s Pasture Driveway. Free parking will be available after 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot between Parkdale Avenue and the Jean Talon Building. Public Works Canada can receive comments online by Oct. 9 by mail or by email at tunneyspastureplan.planpretunney@pwgsc-tpsgc.gc.ca.

Cameras on table for new Para Transpo fleet laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Para Transpo wants to do something new when it buys a new fleet – ask its customers what they want. Para Transpo provides 519,335 dedicated trips a year using 91 vehicles, a fleet that is nearing the end of its life now that the mini buses are five years old. In 2011 the city committed to spending $13 million to completely replace the fleet. On Sept. 26, Para Transpo plans to hold two sessions with its customers and key groups representing the interest of riders. The idea is to have people who use Para Transpo make suggestions on the important things to consider when putting together a request for a new vehicle supplier, said AJ Ryland, program manager of Para Transpo. The consultations will happen at city hall during the morning and afternoon. “It’s something we haven’t done before. so we’re really happy and excited about doing it,” Ryland said. “We’re also hoping that this will sort of lay the groundwork for future consultations with our stakeholders for other initiatives we plan to do from time to time, both with Para Transpo and OC Transpo.” Normally, OC Transpo would send out an RFP, or

Then the transit authority would put together consultations to ask people what they thought about the options. Through the upcoming sessions, OC Transpo is asking customers what they think first, Ryland said. Operators, mechanics, schedulers and other OC Transpo employees will also be consulted.

“This is, I think, a bit unusual,” added David Pepper, OC Transpo’s manager of business and operational services. “In the old world of public procurement, we would come to you after the bid is

out and there and everything is done … Para Transpo came to us and said, ‘We’d actually like to talk to our customers before we even put out the proposal.’” Ryland and Pepper made a presentation to the city’s accessibility advisory committee on Aug. 15 to let them know about the consultation and a couple committee members told the men one thing they would likely hear about from Para users: the need for on-board cameras. The committee met the day after a former Para Transpo driver was sentenced to four years in prison on Aug. 14 after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 26-year-old passenger who has cerebral palsy last May. “Given that that happened once, I believe Para Transpo should consider strongly putting cameras on their buses,” said advisory committee member Susan Brunet, particularly because many customers have communication or mental disabilities that leave them vulnerable to being taken advantage of. “We hear you on that,” PepR0011572267-0823

to our concerns and addressed them,” said Sara Lytle, a resident of the area, in an email. Lytle, along with her neighbours in the Glabar Park and Whitehaven communities, is opposing a redevelopment on the site. The developer is asking for a re-zoning that would see seven, three-storey tall buildings in place of a bungalow currently on the site. At a recent public open house, the developer came back to the community with re-zoning that now includes the retention of existing rear and side-yard setback provisions, a reduced height increase, moving of the buildings closer to Woodroffe Avenue, reducing the number of rear units from four to three, restrictions on rear balconies, inclusion of extra parking, including visitor parking, and retention of more existing vegetation at the rear of the property. Representatives from Novatech Engineering Consultants, who are working on the project, did not respond to requests for comment. But in a submission to the city, it was indicated that “the revisions to the proposal address many of the concerns raised by the community.”

However, Lytle disagrees. “Insignificant changes were made to the overall plan, but lip-service has been paid to the results of community consultation,” said Lytle in an email. “But . . . the surrounding neighbours and community associations asked that this land not be rezoned, and they are re-zoning the property.” Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who originally said it was too early in the development stage to have a position on the re-zoning back in December, said after seeing these plans he will not support it at planning committee. “The developer did change the designs and tried to address some of the community’s concerns, but in my opinion it doesn’t go far enough,” Taylor said. “That was the opinion of most people who came out as well. The changes they saw were nice, but nowhere near what the community considered acceptable.” When the matter goes to planning committee, Taylor said he will be there and will express his objection to the re-zoning moving ahead “in its current form.” Lytle said she would like to speak at the planning committee, and her message will be to the committee itself not the developer. “City planners and the planning committee should be upholding zoning commitments made by the City of Ottawa,” said Lytle. “Zoning by-laws should be laws, not suggestions. Nobody is opposed to growth, change or intensification within the current zoning.” The matter will come before planning committee at 9:30 a.m. in the Champlain Room at city hall.

SoHo Champagne developer refused additional height kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - As the Civic Hospital Neighbourhood braces itself for high towers and increased development in the coming years, some developers are asking for increased height. But most recently, developers of the new SoHo Champagne development at 125 Hickory St. were refused any additional height allowance by the committee of adjustment after requesting four additional storeys on their already 16-storey tower. The committee is an independent tribunal appointed by city council that looks at minor changes happening with developments across the city. The request also comes before the area has finalized a plan that Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs said would be a pedestrian-focused guide to planning development. Alan Cohen, counsel for Soho Champagne developer Starwood-Mastercraft, pushed to have the height increase

presented at the committee. “My client is under a time rush,” Cohen said. “Applications have to be processed and the world cannot stop because there’s planning studies being conducted.” He said his client’s application should be considered under the city’s rules and policies in effect at the time it was submitted - not in light of new or potential policies. “What the city is asking you to do is put everything on hold ... to see if it changes its policy and use this policy to support or resist applications,” Cohen said. “It’s contrary to approved case law and it’s not appropriate in this case, and not fair.” While Cohen was successful in allowing the committee to hear the proposed change in height to one of the towers, the committee ultimately refused the application. Hobbs called the request “major,” and said the matter should not have been brought to the committee. “I was very concerned and wrote out to the community,”

Hobbs said. A new community plan for pedestrian traffic in the area will be considered in the fall and she wants to make sure the buildings compliment what that plan. Amanda Farris, president of the Civic Hospital Neighbourhood Association, submitted a letter to the committee asking that the matter not be heard since there is no plan in place. “While we support intensification, we believe that with modest changes to by-laws and a planned vision for the community by way of a community design plan (CDP), we can work together to guide and encourage developments that are compatible with our mature neighbourhood,” Farris wrote. In an interview with EMC, Farris added that it makes sense to delay the application until there’s a plan in place. “I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask the city to delay looking at these applications until there’s a structure,” said Farris.

National Capital Commission renames Ottawa River Parkway to decide what to do about the Macdonald renaming, Giula said he will now put a request to the NCC to rename the Rockcliffe Parkway. Giula added that he would like to see the spelling corrected to “MacDonald” instead of “Macdonald,” but he didn’t get his wish. The NCC spent $60,000 on four gateway signs reading “Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway”. Perhaps the happiest person at the parkway renaming announcement was Westboro resident Bob Plamondon, a public policy consultant and author. He has led the push to rename a street after Macdonald for more than two years. “It’s a great day,” he said. He admitted there were “clear and persuasive arguments” against renaming Wellington Street, but renaming the parkway was the best option. Not only is it a federal road, which strengthens its ties to Macdonald’s federal role, it is also patrolled by the RCMP, which he created. It was also much easier to accomplish than renaming a city road, Plamondon added. There are no addresses on the parkway, so the change doesn’t create any complication for businesses or residents. In contrast to the extensive consultation and public meetings required to rename a city street, federal roads can be renamed on the direction of the minister in charge – in this case, Ottawa-West Nepean MP John Baird, the minister of foreign affairs. The National Capital Commission’s board also endorsed the new name. Macdonald’s name has been applied to a number of public institutions around the city. In

addition to the MacdonaldCartier International Airport and the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge, the former Bank of Montreal building at 144 Wel-

lington St. was renamed after Macdonald earlier this year. There is also a Macdonald Street in Ottawa in the Golden Triangle.

By: Your Local Family Physiotherapy Team Ah, winter! Ice, snow, and freezing rain, and the resulting slip, falls and broken bones. If you have recently experienced the pain of a broken or fractured limb, you may be interested what can be done to help speed up your recovery. Casts can be on for 6 to 8 weeks, often result in muscle atrophy (shrinkage), joint stiffness, and difficulty in completing day to day activities. Initial swelling and pain associated with being in a cast can be eased with the use of ice and elevation. Position yourself to have the casted limb resting on pillows, and higher than your heart. While

in the cast, a physiotherapist can provide exercises to keep the rest of your body strong, teach you how to use crutches, and give advice regarding daily activities you can perform safely. Once your cast has been removed, it is important to get your limb moving. Ankle and leg stiffness can make walking and stair climbing difficult, and affect your standing balance. Shoulder, elbow and wrist stiffness can make simple tasks like eating, writing, and brushing your hair a chore. A physiotherapist can help you regain movement, balance, strength and function in the

affected limb. Physiotherapists also keep track of your range of motion and strength, letting you track your progress over time.

If you are interested in accelerating your recovery, call your local Family Physiotherapist today to book an appointment.

Time to put a stop to naming carousel

H

uman beings in general attach a lot of significance to names. Names allow us to organize our world in such a way that we can communicate effectively – when we say words like city hall or rabbit, we are all on the same page. This applies to most of us. What appears to be the exception, at least in Canada, is the political class, which apparently doesn’t attach the same value to names like the

rest of us. It seems politicians cannot resist the urge to apply new names to things that already have names. Last week, the federal government, through the National Capital Commission, decided to rename the Ottawa River Parkway as the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway. According to the NCC, the name change answers the call of Canadians to “use our sites, our lands and our assets

to tell our Canadian story.� This announcement, according to Ottawa WestNepean MP John Baird, “is timely as we celebrate 145 years since (Macdonald’s) election as Canada’s first prime minister.� One cannot help but note that Macdonald was a conservative prime minister. We surely won’t be seeing the Aviation Parkway renamed the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Parkway in 2016, marking 120 years since that former prime

minister was first elected. But renaming things is not an exercise any of our politicians should be spending their time and our money on – $60,000 in the case of the parkway. Not only are there numerous things – a bridge, an airport, a school, a historic building – already named after Macdonald in the city, it plays havoc with the way we collectively understand our city. Most of us who live in

Ottawa will refer to the River Parkway for decades to come. It’s what we know it as, what we’re familiar with. It will cause confusion amongst visitors to our city, who run the risk of being told by a local resident to take the river parkway to get downtown, only to search in vain for a road that has been renamed. All of this for $60,000, money that could have saved at least one public service job in this city from federal spending cuts. This is a scenario Ottawa residents are familiar with. Recently, College Coun. Rick Chiarelli sought to have

Robertson Road in Bells Corners renamed Lloyd Francis Boulevard – another decision made for political reasons, not practical ones. Fortunately that proposal was shot down when members of the public caught wind of the plan. When it comes to the federal government and the NCC, the public doesn’t have the same level of influence and we are now stuck with the decision. Is it not enough that new buildings, roads, bridges and the like are named subject to political whim? Our leaders can do better than to occupy their time playing with our society’s placemarkers.

Stressing out the kids BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse

T

he other day, my six-year-old was whining about the cool temperature of the lake following the rain. Normally I try to be empathetic about these things. On this occasion, however, I told him in the nicest possible way to suck it up. When his older brother came along and splashed water over both of us, I just shivered and laughed away the tears of the younger offspring. Sound mean? Maybe. But this incident of acute stress and others like it may actually serve to make my son a more resilient adult. According to recent science in physiology, kids that experience stress on a regular basis are better equipped to handle situations that are new, uncertain and out of their control. The key, of course, is to make sure stresses are shortlived, followed by periods of rest and recovery. Canadian author and former Wall Street trader John Coates summarizes the reasons why in his book, The Hour Between Dog and Wolf: Risk-taking, Gut Feelings and the Biology of Boom and Bust. An economist, Coates is certainly not writing about child-rearing. In fact, the book’s focus is on traders and their role in financial market volatility. But he does a great job of summarizing the science of stress, providing examples that are universally applicable. The book is a rich study of how our biology plays a role in decision-making. To put it simply, when humans are faced with the unknown, it’s not just our brains, but our bodies that respond, argues Coates. In the process, there is a rich release of hormones that prepare our bodies for movement – a surge of adrenalin, testosterone or glucose, for example. Individu-

als who are genetically and developmentally conditioned to handle stress are more likely to keep this hormonal interplay in balance. Those who aren’t will falter when faced with the slightest uncertainties in life. Coates cites one study, for example, conducted at the Rockefeller lab in the United States. In the study, rats that were repeatedly exposed to short periods of stress developed a “hardier physiology and an increased immunity to the damaging effects of further stresses.� But it’s a fine balance. For in the same study, rats exposed to chronic stress “came to suffer both physical illness and learned helplessness.� While Coates acknowledges it may be difficult for individuals to condition themselves to handle stress, he turns to sports medicine for some answers on how we may better prepare ourselves to cope. As physical beings, it really comes down to giving our bodies the opportunity to stretch ourselves physically. It makes sense then that the easiest way to trigger stress in our bodies is through exercise – forcing our heart rates up, pushing our muscles to their limits and expanding our lung capacity. But Coates also makes an argument for forcing our bodies and brains to tap into our ancient physiological flight-or-fight response by exposing ourselves to extreme temperatures. Submerging one’s face in cold water, for example, can actually have the effect of slowing our heart rates and in turn calming our bodies and minds to better deal with what’s to come. So while my “suck-it-up� mentality may have seemed harsh at the time, I take comfort in knowing that allowing my child to experience a harmless incident of stress may contribute to making him an all-around tougher individual. And as so often happens with children, it was a matter of minutes following the splash incident before my son was frolicking away in the icy lake, the previous moment of acute stress seemingly forgotten. The magic formula of stress-recovery-stress-recovery was complete when he followed his swim by exposing his body to the scorching sun before diving into the icy lake once again.

EMC news - Amanda Farris isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprised that developers in the Civic Hospital Neighbourhood are pushing for more height on their buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all has to be looked at in its entirety,â&#x20AC;? said Farris, president of the neighbourhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fundamentally opposed to tall buildings, we just want some sort of guidance and oversight before things are done piecemeal.â&#x20AC;?

Recently, the developer of 855 Carling Ave. put in a request to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee of adjustment to consider a shift to two 26-storey residential towers (from the currently allowed 15 and 19 storeys) and two ďŹ ve-storey residential buildings. The committee, which is an independent tribunal appointed by city council that looks at minor changes happening with developments across the city, decided not to consider the application at its meeting on Aug. 15. Kitchissippi Coun. Kather-

ine Hobbs, who represents the area, said she did not agree that the proposal was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;minor variance,â&#x20AC;? and that a community plan is currently under review for the neighbourhood that will have a pedestrianďŹ rst focus. Hobbs said using this document, she hopes that development will work around pedestrians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before we build anything else, we want to make sure this review takes place,â&#x20AC;? Hobbs said. Farris said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glad the committee put the matter off until the plan is in place and said the community association had put forward a request to put the matter off until a proper plan for development is in place for the area.

Big construction projects an intricate effort Taking a behind-the-scenes look at Bronson Avenue renewal project Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

two-year, $30-million project that cuts off all but local traffic along one of the city’s major north-south arterial roads. The fact the project is on track and on budget may be of small comfort to area residents and business owners. When your home or business is mired in construction, it’s hard to see the light at the

R0011567779/0823

EMC news - The “boom, boom, boom” of drilling rings out on Bronson Avenue, which after months of construction has been left looking like a bleak wasteland. Heavy machinery, generators and piles of gravel occupy space where hundreds of

cars used to zoom (or crawl) by every day. Other than a few pedestrians picking their way through the street rubble along temporary sidewalks and the incessant drilling, the major road is eerily quiet. Road construction is inherently disruptive, but it’s a whole different ball game when you’re looking at a

other end of the tunnel. The city invited media to the construction site on Monday, Aug. 20 to help give the public a taste of what goes into completing such an enormous project – and what the results will be. OTTAWA ON THE MOVE

It’s hard to believe, but the water pipes running under Bronson are more than a century old – many are as old as 130 years. What most people don’t understand when they look at a torn-up road is that the construction is very much about what’s underground, not the road itself, said Zahid Ghadban, an infrastructure design and construction manager with the city. It might be invisible, but the biggest difference that will result from two years of construction on Bronson is the modernization of the water pipes. A large-diameter water main will be installed underground along Bronson from Arlington to Laurier avenues, bringing with it a more secure water supply and more capacity for growth, not only in Centretown, but also in the city’s entire south end, where the

pipe eventually leads. Bronson isn’t the only roadwork the city is catching up on. Recognizing the need to fix some of Ottawa’s oldest roads and the water pipes under them, city council decided to pump $314 million into those projects between now and 2015. “Any time you can invest additional dollars it’s always a significant advantage,” said Wayne Newell, general manager of infrastructure services. “The key is to ensure that money continues into the future to be sustainable.” “Overall the program is going very well,” Newell said. “It is moving. Of course it’s disruptive and there are inconveniences, but overall it seems to be working.” BRONSON DESIGN

Long before shovels hit the ground, there were lengthy consultations on how the “new” Bronson Avenue should look, including a loud push from local community associations to put the street on a “road diet.” They wanted to reduce the number of lanes to calm traffic in one section of Bronson and to make it easier to cycle. But in the end, the design the city settled on is very similar to the configuration of Bronson before it was torn up.

“It doesn’t happen overnight. There is a lot of effort that goes into it,” Ghadban said. There will be many other changes that people will notice more than the water pipe. The road will be resurfaced with a fresh, smooth layer of asphalt. There will be new “street furniture” such as benches and garbage cans and some new trees (although some existing trees will become victims of the construction). Last but not least, the construction will also mean a new pedestrian crossing at Arlington Avenue – something the neighbours advocated for in order to traverse the busy road. The road is already closed to through traffic (a lane remains open for local business and resident access) between Catherine and Somerset streets. Construction will continue next year and is set to be completed by September of 2013. On Aug. 18, the city allowed extended to Saturdays between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. until December this year. Rock drilling and rock hoe ramming will not be done during extended hours. Have you been affected by Bronson Avenue construction? Send letters to matthew. jay@metroland.com.

Beebee is a spayed female, brown tabby Domestic Shorthair cat who is about seven years old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on May 5 and is now available for adoption. Beebee loves to curl up in the sunshine and watch the world go by. She has a quiet personality and gets along well with pretty much anyone. She is past her feisty kitten years and would rather not live in a busy and bustling home. Beebee needs a quiet loving home where she can enjoy her adult and retirement years receiving love and attention curled up on your lap.

Link is an unaltered male, black and cream American Shorthair guinea pig who is just over a year old. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on June 11. He is looking for a home where he can be part of the action and receive lots of attention. He loves fresh fruit and vegetables as treats, and will sing a song of thanks when he feels like speaking his mind. Guinea pigs love to have a spot in their cage where they can hide out when they feel they need some quiet time. For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

IS YOUR CAT’S SCRATCHING HABIT LEAVING YOU SCRATCHING YOUR HEAD?

There are lots of ways to keep your feline friend from ruining the furniture. You can’t eliminate scratching behaviours: it’s a normal behaviour for your cat; it becomes a problem only when the object being scratched is an item of value to you. The goal is to redirect the scratching to an acceptable object, such as a scratching post. Provide objects for scratching that are appealing and convenient from your cat’s point of view. Observe the physical features of the objects your cat is scratching. Note their location, texture, shape and height. Substitute a similar object(s) for your cat to scratch (for example, rope-wrapped posts, corrugated cardboard, or even a log). Place an acceptable object (for example, scratching post) near an

inappropriate object (for example, upholstered chair). Make sure the objects are stable and won’t fall over when she uses them. You can make these objects more attractive to your cat by spraying them with catnip periodically and hanging a toy from the post. If you cat is refusing to use a scratching post and prefers your rug, try covering a piece of plywood with carpet and spraying it with some catnip. Cover the inappropriate object(s) with something your cat won’t like, such as double-sided sticky tape, aluminium foil, sheets of sandpaper, or a plastic carpet runner with the pointy side up.

will likely have the opposite effect and make her less likely to use the post. Special products for training your cat are available at pet supply stores. If you are considering declawing your cat, consider this: declawing a cat doesn’t remove just the claws — it amputates the end digit from the paw, similar in scope to cutting off a person’s finger at the last joint. This procedure can cause substantial discomfort and complications after the operation. Declawed cats may become reclusive, irritable, aggressive and unpredictable, and may have a tendency to bite as they cannot scratch to give warning.

Only remove the “unappealing” coverings (for example, double-sided sticky tape, aluminium foil, sheets of sandpaper) from the inappropriate object(s) when your cat is consistently using the appropriate objects. This will entice your cat to investigate the more appealing scratching post.

While other, newer methods exist for declawing (for example, laser surgery), the end result is still undesirable for your cat as it prevents her from engaging in normal cat behaviour. The OHS does not support declawing. It should be considered as a final option after you have exhausted other alternatives to eliminate destructive behaviour.

Don’t take your cat over to the scratching post and position her paws on the post to show her what she’s supposed to do. This

However, if you feel that you must either declaw your cat or give her up, the OHS would rather see your cat stay in her

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, August 23, 2012

If this is your decision, consult your veterinarian first and discuss having the surgery done at the same time your cat is spayed or neutered. Other tips

Shockey

Shockey is a much loved, robust 1 year old male addopted on Valentines’ Day from the SPCA. Named after Jeremy Shockey of the NFL, he is an extremely fast and agile cat who can jump through railings to gain access to the floor above. His favorite song is ‘Shock the Monkey” by Peter Gabriel. Being a thoughtful cat he never wakes his owners in the morning, he’s partial to an evening cuddle but, is never clingy. He recently broke a desperate addiction to cat treats, and his favourite past-time is GETTING ROWDY!!

If you catch your cat in the act, try making a loud noise (for example, use a whistle, shake a soda can filled with pebbles or pennies, or slap a wall or a table) or use a water-filled squirt bottle. Conversely, when your cat claws the scratching post instead of your couch, make sure you give your cat extra praise and affection. One reason cats scratch is to remove the dead outer layer of their claws. Regularly trimming your cat’s nails can help reduce scratching. You should clip off the sharp tips of your cat’s claws on his front feet every two weeks or so. More companion animal information is available at www.ottawahumane.ca. R0011567756/0823

Scratching is normal cat behaviour, not a comment on your upholstery. Cats scratch in order to: remove the dead outer layer of their claws; rub their scent onto things to mark their territory; stretch; work off energy; and even to seek your attention when they want something.

Opera singer comes home to star at NAC La Bohème kicks off Opera Lyra season Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - Opera singer Joyce El-Khoury’s love for opera began while sitting in the audience at the National Arts Centre as a teenager. Since that moment, the young singer has traveled the globe in pursuit of her dream of becoming a performer, a pursuit that has led her home to Ottawa. La Bohème will be the start of Opera Lyra’s 28th season at the NAC in September and El-Khoury will be playing the lead role of Mimi. This opera was actually the very first opera she saw as a young Ottawa University student in 2002. “The first opera I ever saw in full was La Bohème in 2002,” El-Khoury said. “I went for my birthday and I remember sitting in the NAC and watching the show and thinking I would love to do this one day and here I am doing the opera I wanted, the first one I ever saw, and in the lead role. It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.” The Elmvale native is very excited about performing in her home town and having a chance to catch up with family and friends. “I am not nervous,” she

said. “It is nice to sing knowing that there is someone that loves you in the audience.” El-Khoury admits she once had difficulties with stage fright, but took a leap of faith when she was a teenager and performed for a church. Since that moment, she’s felt comfortable in the spotlight. “I was terrified and was shaking, but I wanted to sing, and just went up and sang and it was like ripping off a BandAid and now here I am here I am.” After graduating from the University of Ottawa in 2005 and completed Opera Lyra’s studio artist program, the ambitious singer went on to attend the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia. After graduation from that program, El-Khoury moved to New York to attend the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann young artist development program. Since graduating from the Metropolitan program in 2011, she has been on the road, performing all over the world. “I feel so lucky to do what I do, to be honest,” she said. “Being on the road and not having a stable kind of home, every four to six weeks can be a hard place, but I am so happy and so grateful to get to do what I do that I am willing to make that sacrifice.”

Ottawa native Joyce El-Khoury has returned to Ottawa to perform in Opera Lyra’s La Bohème starting on Sept. 8. After all the travelling, ElKhoury said performing in her hometown, on her old stage , is a whole new story. “I think I have about 30 family members and my church family coming, it is like my own fan club,” ElKhoury said. “I kind of grew up at the NAC, with my first performance in an opera on this stage. The minute I walked into the building, nothing has changed and I felt at home.” In addition to familiarity and family, El-Khoury will be

singing with her best friend, Michael Fabiano, who will be playing Rodolfo. “We are basically inseparable, it is going to be so much fun,” she said. A big fan of poutine, ElKhoury plans on letting her American friend have his first taste of the Canadian dish showing him around the city. La Bohème was written by Giacomo Puccini in 1896 and tells the tale of bittersweet love. The new general director of Opera Lyra, John Peter Jeffries, admitted this particular opera may be his favourite and seems to evoke emotion from him every time he sees it performed, even after 30 years in the business. “It is romantic and full of tragedy,” he said. “It is about young love and loss. It is a great evening at the opera.” El-Khoury said she draws from her own life experiences when it comes to working in her characters. “The tricky thing, sometimes can be to feel the emotion on the stage, it is not my job to feel the emotion, it is my job to make the audience feel the emotion. I prepare by relating my character to myself.” The opera’s first performance will take place on Sept. 8, with subsequent shows on Sept. 10, 12 and 15. Tickets are currently on sale through Opera Lyra’s website at www. operalyra.ca. R0011552998

Hydro Ottawa launches United Way campaign

R0011555123

Your Community Newspaper

Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa, kicked off the company’s 2012 United Way workplace campaign on August 21.

Full of community spirit, a group of Hydro Ottawa employees ran a 10 km relay run on August 21. The run marked the official beginning of Hydro Ottawa’s 2012 United Way workplace campaign. Through employee donations and corporate matching dollars, Hydro Ottawa’s campaigns have raised more than $1 million over the past 11 years. This year, Hydro Ottawa aims to surpass its 2011 campaign total of $187,932. “Just like the citizens of Ottawa rely on the electricity we deliver, there are thousands of people in our community who rely on the United Way,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. “When I see how generously our employees give back to the community, it makes me proud to be a part of Hydro Ottawa.” In 2011, Hydro Ottawa’s campaign committee was honoured with a United Way Community Builder Award. Thanks to the leadership of these volunteers and with the support of employees across the company, Hydro Ottawa’s workplace campaign is now the largest donor among the more than 100 companies in the Construction, Manufacturing and Services sector. The company’s matching dollars are allocated to the Brighter Tomorrows Fund, a community investment program designed to support frontline agencies that serve people who are homeless or at risk of being homeless to invest in energy-efficient technologies or products. Over the past two years more than $219,000 has been allocated by the Brighter Tomorrows Fund to help agencies implement capital projects to reduce their energy costs. “Supporting United Way Ottawa is just one way Hydro Ottawa is contributing to the wellbeing of our community,” added Conrad. “Whether it is maintaining one of the safest, most reliable electricity distribution systems in Ontario, helping our customers manage their energy consumption or educating children and youth about electricity safety, Hydro Ottawa is a community builder and a responsible, engaged corporate citizen.”

Plotting out sibling revenge

M

y brother Emerson had a way of getting me to do his bidding. Unless I was really on my toes, I often paid dearly for not doing exactly what he wanted. But that hot summer day, when all the chores had been done in the barns, my three brothers were attempting to play ball on the flat piece of barnyard behind the silo. With only three of them, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much chance of a very good game. Emerson wandered over to where I was sitting in the grape arbour with my dolls spread out around me. The shade of the vines made a nice cool spot for me to spend an hour or so at my favourite pastime: playing house or school with my beloved dolls. They came in all shapes and sizes, some with soft rag-stuffed bodies, one with a beautiful china face, a couple showing their age and missing a part, but all dear to me. Emerson sidled closer and I knew what he wanted. He

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories wanted me to head over to the silo and play ball. Well, not really play. What he wanted was me to run and catch the ball when one of them batted it out beyond the yard. Well, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t having any part of a game in which I would never be allowed an even role â&#x20AC;&#x201C; forget that I could never hit the ball in the first place. It was the very idea that I was just to be there for their convenience and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t having any part of it. I turned him down flat. Emerson stomped away to where Everett and Earl were waiting to see if I could be talked into being their fall guy. Well, they had another thing coming. To make sure R0011567237

they knew I meant business, I decided to have a tea party with my dolls. I propped them all up in a sitting position and headed into the house to bring out my little set of tin dishes. I decided I might as well make a little lunch while I was at it and so stopped long enough to butter a slice of bread, cut it into small pieces and headed back out to the grape arbour. What I saw when I returned turned my blood to ice water - there was just an empty space where I had left my dolls. I knew without looking that three sets of eyes would be turned in my direction. I flew into a rage and cleared the rail fence in one leap. Of course, the three brothers denied everything, but a dead giveaway was when Emerson said if I played ball for a bit, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tell me where they were. Well, when he saw I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interest in that deal and was heading into the house to tell Mother, he pointed towards the sand box, which was gravel from our pit Father had brought up on the stone boat for me to play in. There buried in the sand, all in a row like little soldiers, Emerson had buried every doll right up to its neck with just the heads sticking out of the sand. I clawed until I got them all

out. It must have taken me an hour to wash them clean of the sand and grit. I ran into the house to tell Mother what my brother had done. I was pretty sure Everett and Earl would have had no part in the deed. Mother said it was too hot to sort out my problems with my brothers and besides, she said, I knew what she thought of tattlers. That meant unless you actually showed signs of being physically wounded with blood running from your nose, she wanted no part of our childhood battles. So I would be left to my own devices when it came to dealing with Emerson. I plotted in earnest how I could best get rid of him without showing signs that I had done it. Poison was an option, but I had no idea what a poison was or if we had any on the farm. But I realized I was no match for my big strapping brother. I would just have to protect my dolls as best I could. That night, I did as I always did before I went upstairs to bed. I put them in the parlour where they slept every night, telling each and every one of them they were safe there. But after I went to bed and my sister Audrey had blown out the lamp, I lay perfectly still until I was sure she was asleep beside me. Then I crept downstairs. I had to make two trips, but I carried every last doll upstairs and put them under my bed where I knew they would be safe. I finally fell asleep, still plotting how I was going to deal with Emerson and make him pay dearly for his dastardly deed.

Sausage, spaghetti a winning combination

T

his casserole is a good example of how to make a change in a recipe and end up with a dish that tastes just as good, if not better, than the original. The original version of this was called turkey tetrazzini for obvious reasons. It was perfect for using up the leftovers at Christmas and we really enjoyed it. The problem, of course, is that I don’t always have turkey on hand. So I tried making it with chicken. That version was good, but required cooking the chicken first. That was all right, unless I came home from work too tired to bother. Next I tried making it with tuna which can often be substituted for chicken, particularly in casseroles. That was quick and simple and became a regular supper casserole at our table. Recently I tried yet another variation. I had bought a package of bulk sausage for another recipe. Because sausage is so rich, I planned to use only half of the package in that casserole. Since bulk sausage only comes frozen, having thawed it, I had to use it up. So this time I made the ever-changing tetrazzini casserole with

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff sausage. It was just as tasty as any of the earlier versions. I finally realized the reason this casserole always tastes so good, no matter what I use, is the sauce that goes in it. Made with mushrooms, onion, mushroom soup, cheese and Worcestershire sauce, it has a delicious and distinctive flavour, due largely to the Worcestershire sauce. This casserole also calls for cooked spaghetti, which makes it a filling, delicious dish for a family meal, potluck supper or company dinner. The version I give here describes how to make it with sausage. If you prefer, substitute one to two cups of cooked, cut-up turkey or chicken, or one can of tuna. SAUSAGE TETRAZZINI

• 3 cups cooked, drained spaghetti (enough for four people) • 1/2 package of bulk sausage meat, thawed

• 1 can sliced mushrooms, drained • 1/2 onion, chopped • 1 can cream of mushroom soup • 2/3 cup milk • 1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese • 2 cups crushed corn flakes Cook the sausage in a frying pan, breaking up the meat with a spoon. Drain off all the fat. Add the mushrooms and onion to the pan and cook until the onion is tender – about three to four minutes. Spread in the bottom of a large casserole dish. Using either your microwave oven or a saucepan on the stove, combine the soup, milk, Worcestershire sauce and cheese. Heat, stirring often, until the cheese is melted. Stir the cheese sauce into the spaghetti and pour this over the sausage. Sprinkle the crushed corn flakes on tops, and bake at 350 F (175 C) for 30 to 40 minutes. Serves four.

It feels great,” said Farah. “I always strived for it, but I thought it would be a long time from now. I’m really happy with it, and the songs sort of go together well. It tells a story. You can sit through this like a

things around it.” He describes the band as mainly blues, with elements of southern rock, soul and funk. The band members have played across the city including at Maxwell’s Bistro, the Elmdale House Tavern, Pub 101, Fatboys Southern Smokehouse and the Rainbow Bistro. Farah said he wanted to debut the new album at the Elmdale in Hintonburg because of the band’s familiarity with the tavern.

"UUFOUJPO BACK-to-SCHOOL 'BMM3FHJTUSBUJPO How to make healthy school lunches for kids Confrontations focusing on diet between children and parents have been around seemingly since the beginning of time. Many children start off as cooperative eaters, anxious to try different types of foods. As they get older, the number of foods they’re apt to eat diminishes, which can make choosing healthy items for lunches and dinners more difficult. It also can make packing lunches for school more challenging. Many initiatives have attempted to improve the quality of school lunches provided by school cafeterias. Government regula-

tions to reduce the amount of fat and sodium in these lunches, and to introduce more whole grains, fruits and vegetables, are one such initiative. Parents of students who prefer to bring their own lunches from home may be left wondering how they can create healthy lunches their kids will eat. Considering school lunches must compete with far less healthy yet widely available alternatives, parents will need to be creative in their creation of homemade lunches. Here are some ideas to get you started. * Purchase a new lunch

container. There are many different new and innovative lunch containers that can make separating school lunches easy. Few kids want to dig into a brown paper sack and pull out something that has been so squashed it’s unrecognizable. Partitioned lunch boxes enable you to pack different items together where they can be stored separately. The divisions also help you remember to include foods from the basic food groups, such as a fruit, vegetable, protein, starch and dairy item. * Have your child make a list of his or her favorite foods. Once the list has

been made, see how you can make the foods healthier. For example, if chicken nuggets make the list, prepare your own nuggets with white meat chunks that are baked, not fried. If there are a number of bread items, see if you can substitute whole grain breads instead of white, bleached varieties. * Get creative. Children may not be inclined to eat loose pieces of fruit. But if the fruit is stuck on skewers or served with a low-fat dipping sauce or caramel, it may look more appealing. Look to “mini” foods, which tend to be more fun as well. Little sandwiches and little

burgers may present an optical illusion, where kids think they’re eating only a small amount, but actually it’s a full serving. * Hide healthy foods within others. There are entire recipe books that teach you how to mix fruits and vegetables into desserts to increase nutritive value. Everything from spinach to tofu to beets have been included in items like cake, cookies and brownies. So if kids are reticent to dig into their greens, try a clever hiding method. * Cut foods into fun shapes. Kids may be more inclined to eat a turkey and

cheese sandwich if it’s cut into star shapes or their favorite cartoon characters. Invest in a few cookie cutters so that lunchtime becomes fun time. * Don’t let the time of day dictate what you serve. As long as kids are eating healthy items, it doesn’t matter when they eat them. If a child loves bagels, choose whole wheat bagels and add an egg on top for a nutritious lunch. Serve with a gelatin dessert that contains chunks of fruit and low-fat milk, and you’re set. There are many different ways to improve homemade lunches for the better.

"UUFOUJPO BACK-to-SCHOOL 'BMM3FHJTUSBUJPO

Save on back-to-school clothes shopping The back to school season can be bittersweet. Parents may miss having their youngsters around the house when summer officially ends, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also fun for parents to watch kids partake in all that school has to offer. One of the things few parents look forward come the end of summer vacation is back-to-school shopping. Such shopping can be costly, especially when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to outfit kids with new wardrobes. While a complete wardrobe overhaul might not be necessary, kids typically need to

replace a few items theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve outgrown since the start of summer break. There are several ways parents can save on back-to-school clothes. * Get a head start. Parents can save themselves some money by shopping early for their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back-to-school wardrobes. Though kids may experience a growth spurt during the summer, shop for items, like socks, that they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to grow out of before the back-to-school season begins. This affords you time to comparison shop and spread out the cost

of replacing your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wardrobe instead of being hit with one big bill all at once. * Establish a budget. Without a budget, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy for parents to overspend on back-to-school clothing, especially for those parents who wait until the last minute and simply buy the first things they see. Establish a budget, ideally several weeks before your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first day of school. Having a budget in place reduces the likelihood that you will overspend, and developing the budget early helps you spread out your spending.

* Shop at consignment stores. Consignment stores offer name-brand clothing at discounted prices, something parents of evergrowing youngsters can appreciate. Kids will like the name-brand gear, while Moms and Dads will enjoying not having to pay name-brand prices. A consignment store with significant inventory might sell anything from blue jeans and T-shirts to sneakers, shoes and jackets. * Swap clothes with other families. Clothing swaps between families have grown increasingly popular

as more and more parents look to save money on rising clothing costs for their kids. Typically, families will swap clothes, including jackets, if their kids are similar in age and one youngster has outgrown his or her clothes. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a family to swap with, visit your local community center or church to see if it has a clothing swap program. * Shop discount stores. If the local consignment store has already been raided, consider a discount store like Marshalls or TJ Maxx. These stores typically sell

items at heavily discounted prices and often have similar inventories to mall department stores. * Shop online. A relatively new way for parents to save on back to school clothing is to shop online. A popular storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site might offer discounts that their brick-and-mortar store does not. Parents can also scour a host of coupon Web sites to find special codes they can use at checkout. These codes might offer free shipping or a percentage off the bill when consumers spend a certain amount of money.

St. Anthony soccer team vies for field upgrade City’s oldest club in need of new pitch Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Plant Recreation Centre isn’t exactly the ideal field for playing soccer, according to Lynne Russell. Her children play soccer with the St. Anthony Soccer Club, which plays at the centre, and she said $125,000 could really help with the field’s issues. “The field itself is super compacted, there’s no grass that grows on it,” she said. “It’s really difficult for kids to play on there. The issue is it’s an inner city field that’s heavily used by the community. The whole neighbourhood needs to enjoy this park.” The St. Anthony Chachafaz boys’ soccer team recently won honours in week 14 of the Bank of Montreal Team of the Week contest and now has a chance to win a $125,000 field upgrade, as well as a road trip to a professional soccer game and a $5,000 donation to a charity of their choice. Charity, Russell said, is something that’s been instilled in the team - including a recent soccer equipment drive the team held and donating proceeds they received at the Great Glebe Garage Sale to the Ottawa Food Bank. “Not all kids can afford new cleats every year,” she said. “The kids thought it would be a great thing and they thought

let’s gather a bunch of it up and give it to kids who can’t afford equipment.” Russell said the soccer club, the oldest in Ottawa, is very community-minded. “It’s been on Preston Street forever,” said Russell, adding the team’s coach Steve Bencsics has been with the club for 44 years. “We’re connected to the community and have kids from all over the area,” Russell said. She also said there are children within the club who receive funding from organizations like KidSport Ottawa and Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart. “Not every parent has $500 twice a year,” she said. “It’s an eye opener for kids to realize that and they’re appreciative of what they have.” Russell said the players who give so much back to the community deserve the field upgrades and said how much it would mean to the players. “It would mean to much to the team that we could play on a field we’d be proud of,” she said. “It would mean a lot to the club, and for future generations. And it would mean a lot to the community to give them a nice green space.” Residents have until Aug. 27 to vote, and can do so by going online and visiting community.bmo.com/soccer. Residents can also sign up for daily reminder emails to vote at gocachafaz.wix.com/ cachafaz.

EMC sports - Gee Gees football fans will have to travel 40 minutes west of Ottawa to attend home games for the upcoming season. Temporarily relocating the varsity team due to construction delays on its home field will give the University of Ottawa a chance to help build up football culture at Beckwith’s “field of dreams,” however, says the university’s assistant athletic director, Colin Timm. The Lanark County facility is a saviour to the university, which was looking for an al-

ternate field due to delays constructing a new field at its 200 Lees Ave. campus. The field will be the new home for the sports dome formerly located at Lansdowne Park, where the Gees Gees used to play. But around three weeks ago, the athletic department was told that problems installing a tie down beam would delay the completion of the field, likely until November. So the team set out to look for a new venue, examining Carleton University, local high schools and municipal facilities. But when he found out about the Beckwith field, Timm said

This $5.9 million construction project involves the replacement of the watermain as well as new storm and sanitary sewers and full road reconstruction on Lady Ellen Place; new sanitary sewers on McBride Street between Laperriere and Woodward Avenues; a new storm sewer on McBride Street between Raven and Lepage Avenues; and, a new sidewalk on the west side of McBride Street between Laperriere and Lepage Avenues.

he was blown away by the “field of dreams.” Timm said he has driven through the area many times on his way to a family cottage, but he had no idea such a football gem was close by. “From a sport perspective, it was just like … ‘Wow.’ Whoever did this had vision here,” he said. Timm said the Beckwith field would even make an excellent practice facility for a CFL team training camp. For Beckwith Township Reeve Richard Kidd, the move is affirmation that Beckwith Park is “among the best in Ontario.” “I knew that,” he said, adding it is a nice recognition that a team of this calibre from Ottawa decided to come to Lanark County despite looking at other facilities in the city.

That recognition will surely have economic development spin offs, he noted. Even though it is a longer drive and not in the city the university represents, Beckwith is the best place for home games, Timm said. It’s not too far, the facility is top notch and it has everything the team needs, from appropriately sized change rooms and wireless Internet and ample parking. The bleachers seat about 500 people now and Ottawa U will expand that to 1,500 with temporary bleachers. The university already ran shuttles to take students and fans from the university’s sports complex at 801 King Edward Ave. to Lansdowne Park, and the university will continue to offer shuttles for the longer journey to Beckwith. Timm is hoping fans are diehard enough to make the trek, which realistically won’t be too much longer than the 20 minutes it takes to get to Lansdowne Park. While local fans will no longer be able to walk to games, Timm said he is hoping that they will be excited to see a different part of the region and to take in football in a new setting. The hospitality from Beckwith officials such as Reeve Richard Kidd has already been tremendous, Timm said, and he is looking forward to working with the township to stir up football fever. From barbecues to offering fundraising opportunities, ticket packages and donations to the community, Timm said the University of Ottawa wants to do what it can to help Beckwith become a true football town. “I think the biggest thing for them is they are getting topquality Canadian football on a field (where) they have never had it before,” Timm said. “I understand how sport plays a role in rural communities … That’s what is really exciting about this site that may not have presented itself in other areas of the city.” The home opener is set for Sept. 15, beginning at 1 p.m. The Gee-Gees host the defending Vanier Cup champions from McMaster as the start of a strong home schedule which will also include the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, the Waterloo Warriors and the Western Mustangs. A complete schedule and ticket information is available on geegees. ca. In the meantime, football fanatics can get a bit of a fix on Monday, Aug. 27 when GeeGees will feature a training camp practice.

Warm welcome for Ottawa Olympians brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - Ottawa-area Olympians weren’t expecting fanfare when they stepped into the arrivals area at the city’s airport on Aug. 13, but they certainly received a warm welcome. Sprinter Gavin Smellie said he was just going to jump in a taxi to go home, but was surprised to see friends and the Ottawa police pipe and drum band waiting for him. Silver medalist rower Conlin McCabe, from Brockville, wasn’t expecting to see so many people before he headed home. “This never happens in our

sport,” he said. “This is awesome, thank you.” McCabe came out wearing his silver medal, and though he never took his eyes off it, he was quick to allow several dozen waiting fans the opportunity to try it on and take a photo with him. Sprinters Gavin Smellie and Oluwasegun Makinde, both 4x100-metre team members, though Makinde took the role of alternate, said they were prepared to take a month break before heading back to the track to train with Ottawa Lions coach Glenroy Gilbert. Gilbert, who also returned on the same flight from London as the Olympic relay coach, trains Smellie in Ot-

tawa, though he represents the Toronto-based Flying Angels track club. Many members of the Lions were there to greet them, wearing club clothing and holding custom made signs that had been hanging in the office during the Games. “We’ll come back, 2016, we’ll be there,” said Orléans’ Makinde, one of the younger athletes on the team. “The highlight was winning a bronze for about seven minutes (before) getting disqualified.” He said that the team is already aiming for redemption at the 2016 Games, and achieving a taste of the third place finish has them aiming for the gold in the future.

“It was a great feeling, the atmosphere was great, the whole Olympics – I experienced that,” Smellie said. “Running in front of thousands of people in the stands, with millions of people watching on television.”

He thought the commotion would be over, but he got one last taste of the Olympic excitement when he entered the arrivals area. Several of the athletes stopped to look around to try and figure out what exactly was going on before it sank in.

Camp encourages kids to become paramedics Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Eric Metat has called on the paramedics 15 times, but on Aug. 16, they called on him. Metat was one of approximately 20 participants at Paramedic Awareness Week Camp last week. While his previously involvement with the paramedics resulted from skateboarding accidents, Metat, a Lowertown resident, said he wanted to come to the camp because he might want to become a paramedic when he grows up. That was good news for Ottawa Paramedic Service superintendant Paul Morneaux, who helps out with the camp. “We want to reach out to various parts of the community and show them they can consider paramedicine as a career,” Morneaux said. At the very least, the camp is an opportunity to increase awareness of what paramedics do. When he started in the service 22 years ago, Morneaux said many people didn’t know what a paramedic was or they were referred to by a detested term: “ambulance driver.” “But it’s getter better,” Morneaux said. “Everyone seems

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Youth that participated in Paramedic Awareness Week Camp last week included, from left, Zavannah Metat and her brother, Eric Metat, from Lowertown; South Keys resident Steven Boswell, a member of the Medical Ventures program; and CJ Baker of Bells Corners. The group worked to ‘backboard’ their sample patient, Marie Baker. to know what a police officer is and what a firefighter is. Sometimes the word ‘paramedic’ – even that word – some kids don’t even know it. But it’s getting better.” With every group of children invited to the annual paramedic camp, the more that awareness spreads, says Maria-Cristina Serje, a diversity consultant with the city who helped set up

the camp two years ago. The program invites children and youth from various cultural and community groups to joined individuals and children of paramedics to learn the basics of paramedicine. “It’s actually really fun. I expected it to not be fun, but it was super fun,” said CJ Baker, a participant from Bells Corners.

Ottawa students return from Arctic adventures EMC news - Imagine being so close to a polar bear, it is possible to rub its big white belly or climbing over sea ice in the middle of the summer. Imagine learning all about the Arctic in the Arctic. For three Ottawa students, none of this required their imagination as they had the opportunity to participate in an Arctic expedition which each of them credit with changing the way they see life on Earth and the fragile nature of the environment. The Students on Ice Arctic Youth Expedition departed from Ottawa on July 30 with 75 students from eight different countries and returned to

Your Community Newspaper

the Canadian Museum of Nature on Aug. 13 to take part in a welcome home event. Although most were a tad tired, many of the students could not ďŹ nd the words to describe what they had experienced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sometimes think that I live in a bubble and I wanted to lean about what is beyond the bubble,â&#x20AC;? said Michela Panarella, a student from OrlĂŠans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From this trip, I have learned just how big this world is and the impact we can have on it.â&#x20AC;? The program began in 2001, founded by Geoff Green, a Canadian environmentalist. Through funding from the Canadian Museum of Nature, there have been 12 expeditions to date.

The museum sent three scientists on the expedition and Margaret Beckel, the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, also had the opportunity to spend some time with the students in Iqaluit before they embarked on the sea expedition portion of the journey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although I did not make it on the ship, my experiences with the students were incredible,â&#x20AC;? Beckel said. The museum attributes the partnership with Students on Ice as one of the examples of the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to the Arctic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really truly believe that understanding the Arctic is critical to understanding our place here,â&#x20AC;? Beckel said. Green, a veteran of 80 Antarctic expeditions and 36

Arctic expeditions started the program to offer students a chance to connect with nature, understand the importance and complexities of the Arctic and have a larger understanding of their individual roles back in their own communities. For Crystal Beach siblings Sam and Yasmine Anderson, the experience has left them almost speechless. Sam, 16, the student trustee for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, will bring what he learned back to his fellow students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be hard to make people understand what you went through and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be like a professor, but it is important to illustrate the awe I felt and hope it will convey to the students,â&#x20AC;? he said.

BUSINESS DIRECTORY

Yasmine, 14, said she wants to bring a similar message to younger students. Both said the trip has made a huge impact in their lives. Since the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inception, it has taken more than 2,000 students, teachers and scientists to the Arctic, but this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip almost was cancelled because of excessive sea ice in the Iqaluit harbour, preventing access to the ship. After a two-day delay, a special request to the Canadian Coast Guard was granted. The Coast Guard ferried the group to their ship, and Green said he was almost brought to tears by the generosity offered to his expedition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we would have done,â&#x20AC;? Green said.
