A kite boarder takes to a still-frozen Britannia Bay on April 6 for what will likely be a last icy outing of the year. Although river ice is stubbornly thick this spring, warm temperatures, rain and rising water levels will soon put an end to the fun. These same adventureseekers will be back in the summer, however, as their sail rigs can also be used on water.

Arts - If you’ve been thinking of trying out a new musical instrument this spring, or are seeking programming for kids, the creators of Bluesfest have a destination for you. Starting April 28, the Bluesfest School of Music and Art is opening its new Festival House for public programming. Located at 450 Churchill Avenue, the building’s music and art programming is the product of a partnership between RBC Bluesfest and the Dovercourt Community Association. Ere’n Coyle, director of the program, said the newness of the facility will allow them to experiment with programming to see what resonates with the public. “There’s no ‘well, we’ve never done this before,’” said Coyle, “instead, it’s ‘sure, do we have a teacher?’”

She said it has been entertaining meeting the artists and musicians who will guide entrants in the eight-week programs. “The instructors are all practicing and professional working musicians,” said Coyle. “A small number of them are still doing their education and have teaching experience.” Festival House started life as the former Westboro United Church, and the church’s council offered their support to the venture as it was in the development phase. The hall in which the program will be housed will be named Kitchissippi Community Hall in recognition of this. Since its inception, RBC Bluesfest has strived to fostered musical awareness and artistic creativity among Ottawa students with their Blues in the Schools program. See PROGRAMS, page 13

News - After almost 30 years representing downtown residents, Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes announced she is dropping out of the re-election race.

By the time residents head to the polls on Oct. 27, Holmes will have served the ward for three decades. While she still has her health and energy to burn, Holmes said it’s time for her to start enjoying life more. “I’ve been here for a long

time. I think I need to get a life,” she said. “I just want to get out and see the world.”Holmes’ April 3 announcement that she would retire at the end of this term of council clears the way for a field of candidates who have already signed up to run for her role.

“I think the rumour was out. Certainly, I’ve been here for a long time,” Holmes said. There are already five other candidates registered for the Somerset Ward election – Martin Canning, Thomas McVeigh, Jeff Morrison, Denis Schryburt and Lili Weemen. See MAKING, page 6

Experimental Farm grounds and new programming ready for new visitors. “Winter has been challenging, but we’ve got lots of things going on for Easter,” said director general KerryLeigh Burchill, adding they’ve had newborn livestock appearing on an almost daily basis. While the museum plans to offer tried-and-true programming this spring, including activities (including an egg hunt) for the Easter long weekend, and Mother’s Day on the Farm, a new exhibition is in the works for next month. Titled Food Preservation: The Science You Eat, the exhibit -- opening May 13 -- will take visitors on an educational journey behind how their food stays fresh. Many people don’t like to think about the preservation practices that keep their favourite foods fresher, longer, which is why the museum wanted to delve into the science behind it. “We want to take the fear factor out of food,” said Burchill. “(The exhibit) will be looking at traditional methods of preservation – like pickling, jams and jellies – as well as newer processes like highpressure pasteurization and irradia-

tion.” Preservation, said Burchill, is a big part of food literacy, despite food production getting most of the limelight. The museum’s mandate is to explore all aspects of the food system, including food security. Last year’s opening of the museum’s new learning centre allowed for greatly expanded programming, with workshop space and demonstration kitchens along with space for exhibits. The food preservation exhibit will be on display for five years, with activities and programming updates to keep the exhibit fresh, so to speak. As spring progresses, farm visitors can look forward to taking part in the annual Sheep Shearing Festival (May 17-19), as well as Father’s Day on the Farm (June 15). The museum’s annual Baskets with Panache fundraiser will take place on June 18, where money is raised to bring underprivileged children to the farm for a fun and authentic rustic learning experience. More information on the museum and its programs can be found at cafmuseum.techno-science.ca.

Community - The students of Glashan Public School took to the streets in protest on April 7, but it wasn’t a commentary on the state of their school. Rather, it was an effort to improve the condition of their schoolyard, which very much reflects the concrete jungle nature of urban schools that were built (or expanded) in the postwar era. Students, their parents, and school staff are hoping Glashan, located on the block bound by Catherine, Kent and Arlington Street, will be the winner of a $20,000 outdoor classroom – which would bring a green sanctuary to the asphalt-laden, west-facing school yard. A kick-off ceremony was followed by a street rally aimed at bolstering support for the school’s entry into the Trees of Knowledge competition, offered by Majesta in partnership with Trees Canada and Focus on Forests. Musician Bruce Cockburn, an Ottawa native and strong supporter of education and the environment, has offered the school his support in their bid. “I am pleased to offer whatever support I can to a plan that will surely bring a needed and healthy component to the school’s teaching program,” said Cockburn in a message reprinted on the school’s website. Principal Jim Tayler said the need for shade and green space – always in short supply in the urban core – became greater after a number of ash trees lining Catherine Street succumbed to the emerald ash borer last year, leaving the play area wide open to the sun. “The outdoor classroom initiative is really just part of a larger project to improve the learning environment for our students outside,” said Tayler. “Our yard is really full of asphalt and wire fencing … Our parents have driven this. They were the ones who started this through the school council because they had initial concerns about the ash trees. That really started the conversation, and it expanded to other things we can do with the yard.” The school’s plan for the yard is to introduce trees and grass over the next couple of years, while hopefully removing some of the asphalt coverage. Another project Glashan is considering is to enliven the expansive (and bare) brick walls of the school ‘s exterior with large murals designed by its students. In the mean time, Tayler and his students will be waiting and

Police see largest jump in ‘sunshine’ salaries Ottawa West News staff

News - A total of 999 extra employees on the city’s payroll broke the $100,000 earnings mark in 2013. The province released its annual “sunshine list” of public employees who earned more than $100,000 and 2,188 City of Ottawa staffers are among the almost 100,000 names on the list. The police service saw the largest jump in the number of employees earning more than $100,000 in Ottawa. They recorded a salary bump from 2012 to 2013, which resulted in 670 police employees being added to the list for a total of 1,039. Police Chief Charles Bordeleau brought home $253,474 in 2013. Police officers aren’t the only emergency personnel on the list – it includes around 400 Ottawa firefighters and 155 paramedics. Firefighters also received a pay increase from an arbitration award. Aside from police, 1,149 city employees made the list in 2013 – up 329 from the year before.

The salaries of 41 per cent of the city employees on the list – 470 people – were actually under $100,000, but they earned more because of retroactive payments, banked overtime hours or vacation cash-outs or on-call pay. The top-earning city employee was again the top boss – city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, who made $328,284 in 2013. The city’s chief medical officer of health, Dr. Isra Levy, wasn’t far behind at $324,213. John Manconi, general manager of OC Transpo, took home $243,207, plus almost $9,000 in benefits. Mayor Jim Watson earned $168,102. The so-called “sunshine list” includes public-sector employees from the provincial government and municipalities, hospitals, school boards, post-secondary institutions and power generation authorities. University of Ottawa president Allan Rock earned $395,000 in 2013. Carleton University’s president, Roseann Runte, made $358,473. At Algonquin College, president Kent MacDonald

His French Catholic counterpart, Bernard Roy, made $212,873. In local hospitals, Jack Kitts, CEO of the Ottawa Hospital, brought home $630,485. The Royal Ottawa Health Care Group’s president and CEO George Weber earned $381,160. Montfort Hospital president Bernard Leduc made $424,487. Overall, the number of names on the “sunshine list” increased by 11 per cent to a total of 97,796. The provincial government pointed out the average salary of people on the list is down slightly 2011 to $127,433 in 2013.

Worse construction season than last year, city says Reconstruction of Churchill between Byron, Carling continues Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa residents should brace for an even busier road construction season than last year, the city says. From highway lane restrictions and ramp closures to road resurfacing and the complete closure of Belfast Road and St. Joseph Boulevard, the upcoming road works are sure to put more bumps in your commute than last year, said Phil Landry, director of traffic operations. The message again this year was clear: walk, cycle or take the bus instead. OC Transpo is adding a big boost to ridership capacity, especially in the east end, to account for anticipated traffic snarls. There will be space for 5,200 riders in the morning peak and 4,600 riders on the way home from work between the downtown and Orleans. This year, 540 buses will have bike racks. Landry said commuters have been spared what would have been the most massive construction headache to date: all-day lane restrictions the construction contractor proposed for eight weeks on Highway 417. The city rejected that outright, Landry said. “It would create unimaginable delays and was unacceptable for the city and residents,” he said. Instead, the Queensway will be reduced to two lanes between Nicholas Street and the split only on weeknights and on weekends from 9 p.m. on Friday to 6 a.m. on Monday for six weeks starting in late May. “The work between Nicholas and the split continues to be our single biggest challenge with respect to overall mobility throughout the city this year with impacts being felt to the east and west well outside of the project’s limits,” Landry said. Queensway ramp closures between Nicholas and the split will also make motorists’ lives more difficult throughout the summer. Commuters in the west end will also have to grapple with the reduction of the Carp Road overpass starting in April. It will

be reduced to a single lane alternating directions while the bridge is rehabilitated. Highway widening in the west end will continue until the fall. The Castlefrank Road eastbound on-ramp to Highway 417 will be closed for a month starting in May. Overall, the city will spend $127 million on 80 projects to renew roads and utilities or build new infrastructure representing 50 kilometres of roads in total. Of that, $4 million dollars is slated to improve congested intersections, while $2 million is dedicated exclusively to 13 projects to build 6.5 km of new cycling facilities. That includes the start of construction on a pedestrian bridge over the Rideau River, connecting Somerset Street East in Sandy Hill with Donald Street in Overbrook. Some road construction budgets also include cycling facilities. The spring roadwork season will kick off with street sweeping starting April 14. Concentrated operations downtown will take place until April 17, including parking restrictions that affect permit holders. Signs will be posted, similar to the process used to clear snow banks. By far the longest-running traffic impact will be the two-year complete closure of Belfast Road between Coventry Road and Trainyards, Landry said. Tremblay Road will remain open, but the long-term closure is needed for construction on the depot for light-rail trains, in addition to the rehabilitation of the road and bridge. It s not the only long-term closure: St. Joseph Boulevard, a major commercial artery in Orléans, will be completely shut down all summer, and Lees Avenue on Old Ottawa East will be closed for 12 weeks in the fall while the Highway 417 overpass is replaced.

Street and the bridge over the O-Train tracks to prepare for light-rail construction there in the coming years. The Macdonald-Cartier Bridge to Gatineau will see lane reductions this year as the federal government undertakes some rehabilitation work. The city will also spend more than $51 million to repave roads this year.

The rough pothole season took a toll on roads but no additional work is planned because of the pothole-filled spring, however, Landry said the city re-arranged the schedule to repave some streets sooner. Bumpy Highway 174 will be resurfaced this spring and summer. St. Patrick Street, which was just included on CAA’s list of worst roads in Canada, will get a smooth new coat of asphalt starting in mid-July. Con-

struction will take place in off-peak traffic hours. Five kilometres of Baseline Road is also set to be resurfaced between Woodroffe Avenue and Prince of Wales Drive. Some road projects that begin last year, including on Rideau Street, Elgin Street, Montreal Road, Queen Street and Sussex Drive, Trim Road, the Hunt Club interchange, the Minto Bridges and the Jockvale Bridge will continue this season.

Charges laid in multiple Carling robberies News – A suspect has been arrested after three robberies, two of which included threatening behaviour with a needle. On Jan. 27 at about 9:30 p.m., a lone male entered a fast food establishment in the 2900 block of Carling Avenue. The suspect, wearing a scarf over his face and armed with a needle, approached an employee and produced a note making a demand for cash. The suspect then threatened to jab the employee with the needle.

The suspect fled with an undisclosed quantity of cash. There were no injuries. On Feb. 1, at about 1:20 p.m., a lone suspect entered the same fast food establishment. The suspect approached an employee, with his face masked, and made a verbal demand for cash. The suspect also threatened to jab the employee with a needle. The suspect was also armed with a knife. Another employee overheard what was going on

and confronted the suspect. The suspect then fled the premises empty-handed. There were no injuries. Later the same day, at about 11:10 p.m., the suspect entered a gas station kiosk in the 3500 block of Carling Avenue. The suspect had a hood pulled up over his head drawn tight and made a verbal demand for cash. The suspect was armed with a knife at the time. The suspect fled with an undisclosed quantity of cash.

There were no injuries. On April 1, a 40-year-old Ottawa man was charged with multiple counts of robbery, attempted robbery, wearing a disguise, possession of a dangerous weapon and breach of undertaking.

But Holmes said it was the news that her former assistant, Catherine McKenney, planned to run that made the veteran councillor feel comfortable stepping down. McKenney, who has worked as an aide to deputy city manager Steve Kanellakos for five years, also served as an assistant to former Kanata city and regional councillor, Alex Munter, among other political roles.

Holmes had already registered as a candidate. “I wasn’t going to retire, and therefore I signed up, unless there is someone coming along who I thought would reflect the values of the people of Somerset Ward,” Holmes said. McKenney said she would not have run against Holmes because she shares the same values and goals as her former boss. “I want to carry on that tradition of strong leadership,” McKenney said.

Separate fact from fiction

T

he best man in Ottawa has taken a tumble courtesy of some shotgun silliness emerging from yet another sensitivity-spooked sports organization in the capital. A couple weeks ago, the Ottawa RedBlacks introduced Big Joe Mufferaw as the football team’s new mascot to the applause of hundreds of delighted children at the Kanata French public school in Morgan’s Grant. The school’s vice-principal, Matthieu Vachon, said Mufferaw was “a wonderful choice of name.� “Jos Montferrand is a pioneer of French language rights in Ontario, so it’s a great choice of name for the mascot of the team, and it shows the heritage of Ottawa and eastern Ontario,� he said. It’s important to note that Big Joe Mufferaw is a fictional character created by Ottawa Valley author Bernie Bedore that was inspired by the exploits of a French Canadian logger. But only three days after the announcement, following a string of “several� complaints, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, the group that owns the RedBlacks, gave the name the old heave-ho, deciding to go with Big Joe or Grand Jos. Apparently, the sports group was deluged with “several� emails and phone calls (it didn’t quite reach “dozens� proportions) complaining how the name was an anglicized version of Montferrand.

And don’t forget the “several� people who expressed their displeasure over the Twitterverse, with messages denouncing the football team’s sensitivity to the sensitivities of French Canadians. It’s time for a reality check: Big Joe Mufferaw is a fictional character. You can dislike a fictional character. You can refuse to read a book or watch a movie about a fictional character. But it’s more than a little silly if you try to stop others from reading or watching movies about a fictional character. Clearly, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) were a little gun shy about offending francophones, considering it was only a few months away from the newly created team’s season opener at Lansdowne Park. OSEG should have shown a little backbone and stuck with their original choice. Ottawa’s professional sports teams are already starting to earn a reputation for being wishy washy. It’s been little more than a year since Ottawa’s franchise professional basketball team dropped the name TomaHawks, following complaints from several fans, who claimed the team name misappropriated First Nations culture. Tomahawk – it’s an inanimate object. History has shown us that a small and determined group of people can make a real difference in this world. But sometimes they shouldn’t.

f you know Ottawa at all, you know that it is a city of cults. There are little groups, hundreds of them scattered about, that are interested in the most out of the way things. You might think you are the only one fascinated with, say, the political thought of M.J. Coldwell or the proper way to cook an eel, but there is probably a group meeting about that right now. For a while it appeared that people who believed in the arrival of spring were another oddball aggregation. But it turns out maybe they were right. This is by way of an introduction to a unique meeting that happened a couple of weeks ago when the former Montreal Expos outfielder, Ellis Valentine, was in town. An invitation went out to meet him and help the Miracle League of Ottawa, a group that helps special-needs children, young adults and adults play baseball on specially-constructed fields. Valentine didn’t play long enough for the Expos -- six years -- to become one of the team legends -- except to the cult. He was traded away in the middle of the 1981 playoff season and wasn’t around for some of the exciting times that followed. But he

Before Gary Carter, Andre Dawson and Tim Raines emerged as stars, Valentine was the best guy on the Expos, an all-star in 1977. And, of course, there are people who remember that, even though Valentine had not been in an Expos uniform for more than 30 years. So they came to a Westboro pub, helped the cause, got autographs and heard Valentine, who had arrived from Texas, give a graceful little speech about the Expos, baseball and the Miracle League. It would be fair to say that this cult consisted largely of middle-aged men and men who wished they were still middle-aged. Some of them were wearing Expos uniform shirts and there was a guy wearing a Phillies

uniform too. We all stood in line for autographs and a chance to chat. Which is to say that you’re never too old to be fanatical about stuff. And that doesn’t apply just to Westboro. There were undoubtedly many other unexpected events taking place in other Ottawa venues the same night. The quintessential thing about being in a cult is that you believe, no matter what. A couple of days later the cult of the Expos had grown into a wave, gathered at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, ostensibly to watch an exhibition baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the New York Mets, but really to will into existence a new major league baseball team for Montreal. Montreal has been without one since 2004. For two days, the Olympic Stadium was filled in a way that the Expos had not been able to fill it in their last doomed years. This may also have had something to do with being desperate for arrival of spring. Whatever the reason, they packed the place with roaring voices and Expos shirts that had been in the bottom drawer for many years. It was an impressive show, a demonstration of hope. It may not succeed, because it is up against the irrational realities of sports capitalism, but it was moving to see.

Among the group at the Ellis Valentine night were people involved in bringing baseball back to what used to be called the Lynx Stadium next year. That’s another demonstration of hope. The Lynx, in the 1990s, rode a wave of baseball enthusiasm in Ottawa and then suddenly the wave disappeared. Maybe it can reappear. Stranger things happen every day in this town. Meanwhile, it is comforting to be reminded that, no matter how arcane is your interest, no matter how distant your target, in Ottawa you are not alone. How’s that eel tasting?

Helping the isolated should be a priority

L

ast winter I was at the tail end of a large research project for a client. I rented a hotel room downtown to use as office space. I spent several days and evenings looking out the window between paragraphs. It was the closest I’ve been to observing people in isolation. Perhaps “people in isolation” isn’t the best way to phrase it: As I looked down into the windows of the apartments around me, I saw people who were isolated. It was quite a jarring experience, really. Here they were, in the centre of a large city, yet many of them seemed to sit alone, day in and day out. Most of them were elderly. Most of them didn’t shut their curtains at night; no need to reopen them in the morning. Many sat in the same chair, watching television and receiving no visitors. At a glance, it may seem that this microcosm has nothing to do with the larger reality. But research into social isolation -- particularly for Canada’s aged population

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse – suggests it is an accurate depiction of a wider trend. According to Statistics Canada, the number of Canadians over 65 will outnumber those 14 years and under for the first time at some point in the next seven years. There are a number of reasons to be concerned about that – primarily the economic and health burden this represents. But on a human level, what are we, as a society, doing to ensure that our elderly are not socially isolated? If I may be so bold, we’re not doing enough. A new study from the Institute for Marriage and Family Canada suggests that social isolation among our elderly is a growing problem, and a significant one. “Research shows that social isolation is as strong a factor

in early death as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and alcohol consumption,” writes author Derek Miedema in a report released on April 9. In fact, the 20 per cent of Canadians over 65 who do not participate in frequent in social activities, or those who are otherwise isolated, are at higher risk for chronic disease, including “lung disease, arthritis, impaired mobility and depressive symptoms,” according to a 2013 report on the subject cited by Miedema. He notes that social isolation, while it can occur at any age, is a growing problem as the population ages. A report out of King’s College in London, he notes, found the elderly, often retired, lose essential day-to-day contacts over time.

They also experience death of family and friends more frequently than those in younger demographic cohorts. Further, many are forced to move out of their established neighbourhoods at a time when they are already experiencing loneliness. In the institute’s report, a number of successful case studies are presented as best practices for helping to reduce social isolation among seniors. One is a seniors community centre in Boston that has received a wealth of public funding and offers everything from exercise classes to citywide excursions. Others are more simple, including a “schoolto-seniors home” pen pal exercise and monthly spaghetti dinners run by church groups. My children’s school offers opportunities for the active retired, “les grandparents,” to come into the school on a regular basis to help children with reading and supervise lunch activities. But we all could do more. Policy-makers need to con-

sider social isolation when approving new community housing plans. How can new communities incorporate not just housing, but shops and services that are walkable and green space that would encourage people, including seniors, to get outside? Part of Toronto’s tower renewal project, established in 2008, is to do just that. Toronto is helping property owners and developers of 1,200 high-rise towers built decades ago to refurbish them to make them more sustainable and more accessible. The next big phase involves rezoning that would allow many of these currently isolated residential spaces to incorporate stores, dentist’s offices and pharmacies on their main levels. Already, the program has encouraged better use of green space to build playgrounds and community gardens. In Ottawa, the inspiration of Mayor Jim Watson’s seniors summit seems to have plateaued recently. As it picks up momentum, I hope the city will consider prescribed roles for each of us in Ottawa’s older adult action plan, specifically those that work to keep our seniors from isolation.

April is Daffodil Month Community - Last year, the lives of more than 187,000 Canadians changed when they were diagnosed with cancer. It’s for this reason the Canadian Cancer Society raises funds and awareness by asking Canadians to support its Daffodil Month campaign every April. The society asks the public to help support them by making a donation at any of the more than 635 LCBO stores throughout Ontario. Coin and daffodil pin boxes will be displayed at LCBO checkout counters until April 26. The funds raised through donations for daffodil pins will enable the society to continue in its mission to eradicate cancer and enhance the lives of people living with cancer. The society is one of 28 provincial and numerous local charities that will benefit from LCBO’s provincewide donation box program in 2014. In 2012, the board’s outlets raised more than $6.6 million for charities through special programs and initiatives.

News - Family, friends and complete strangers came out in droves to help support one man’s fight with leukemia. Westboro’s Gezelig restaurant held a Swab-a-thon on March 29 in an effort to find a bone marrow match for Al Carpenter, who is suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Carpenter is a long-time family friend of Gezelig owner, Stephen Beckta. “He wasn’t able to find a donor,” Beckta said. “We are under no illusions … the odds of finding a match are minute, but this event will also help sign up more donors for the stem cell donor bank.” The cancer is in Carpenter’s blood stem cells in his bone marrow. Beckta said his friend’s only chance of survival lies in finding a match for a bone marrow transplant. Although Carpenter’s odds of finding a match are slim, Beckta and Carpenter’s family were eager to spread the word about the Canadian Blood Services need for more donors. Beckta said the biggest need for donors is for men between the ages of 17 and 35. The event swabbed participants with Q-tip swabs of their cheeks. Whether or not they were a match, those who signed up were also adding their DNA information to the Canadian Blood Services stem cell bank. “The odds of being a match or being called are 0.05 per cent,” Beckta said. “But it’s important to still make

sure people understand that.” According to the Canadian Blood Services, there are two types of donations: bone marrow stem cell donations are performed under anesthesia, with special, hollow needles to withdraw liquid marrow from the back the pelvic bones. Normally about a litre of fluid is taken and the procedure usually takes about 45-90 minutes. Donors are typically discharged from the hospital the same day. The other type of donation, peripheral blood stem cell donation donates stem cells through blood. The donor will receive drug injections every day for four to five days. The stem

Committee backs plan for Nelson Mandela Square Ottawa West News staff

News - Mayor Jim Watson’s idea to name a yard between city hall and the provincial courthouse after Nelson Mandela got the finance committee’s support on April 1. Watson revealed the idea during his State of the City speech to city council on Jan. 22. “It would be a small, but meaningful way to recognize the man who inspired people the world over,” the mayor said at the time. Forty submissions were sent to the city regarding the

proposal, with only three opposed to the new name. If approved by city council, the area in front of the city hall Heritage Building facing Elgin Street, near the Human Rights Monument, will be renamed after Mandela. The South African leader. who dedicated his life to ending that country’s apartheid regime, died on Dec. 5, 2013. Mandela was South Africa’s first black chief executive, elected as president from 1994 to 1999 after being sentenced to life impris-

onment and serving 18 years at the Robben Island jail for plotting to overthrow the government using violence. Mandela visited Ottawa in 1998 and unveiled a plaque honouring John Peters Humphrey, the first drafter of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in front of the Human Rights Monument outside city hall’s heritage building. He was the first living foreigner to be made an honourary Canadian citizen and the first foreign leader to be made a member of the Order of Canada.

Submitted

This area at the Human Rights Monument in front of city hall on Elgin Street is one step closer to being named in honour of Nelson Mandela.

…and many more!

Q and A WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE DISH? So many to choose from, I like our veal Picata, it’s so tender you can cut it with a fork. We only use best loins money can buy and serve with a side of fresh pasta and a combination of crispy market vegetables. On the other hand my brother likes our Cannelloni. Like all of our dishes, this dish is made with home-made pasta rolled out and stuffed with braised milk-fed veal, baked with Bolognese sauce and mozzarella. Another favourite is our linguine di Pesce which includes sautéed scallops, tiger shrimps, mussels, white wine, garlic, and your choice of tomato or cream sauce. GUILTY PLEASURE? Our home made gluten free chocolate cake is to die for, or our dream-bomba which is a peanut butter gelato surrounding a caramel center and covered with an outer layer of chocolate or our house specialty tiramisu along with a fresh ground cappuccino.

PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED TO KNOW? How good our pizza is, maybe because we are a fine dining restaurant and people that don’t know our history or don’t realize that our parents owned one of Ottawa’s first pizzerias in the west end. Our parents have been serving the best since 1973. The other surprise for first-time customers is how pleasant, elegant and inviting our restaurant is. We are located in an easily-accessed strip mall and people don’t expect our high level of restaurant service and are pleasantly surprised. We can’t control misconceptions from outward appearance but we can sure control the mood and atmosphere on the inside. FAVORITE QUOTE? “We believe in what we create.” SECRET TO YOUR SUCCESS? It’s love, passion and the commitment to our craft that equals success and being able to recognize and appreciate and our clients and friends. We are owner-operated from the kitchen to the front of the

house. When you enter our Napoli’s you are in our home. What we do best is make you feel at home. DON’T LEAVE YOUR BUSINESS WITHOUT TRYING? Our house Salad dressing, our meatballs, our Zucchini and of course our home made Ravioli appetizer. HOW DID YOU START YOUR BUSINESS? We started our business November 1993 and are celebrating our 20th anniversary in Stittsville. My brother Milad and I grew up in the restaurant Industry and we decided to branch out on our own along with our spouses and open in Stittsville. We had big ideas, passion and a good work ethic. We took over an existing but closed restaurant and made it into something wonderful. Here we are today, still full of excitement, energy and new ideas that make us a desirable restaurant and a destination spot in the community.

Shoppers stream into the newly reopened Zellers at 59 Robertson Rd. in Bells Corners on April 3. ‘I think it’s wonderful that Zellers has reopened,’ said Patrick Doyle as he waited to enter the store moments before. ‘I never thought I’d see them back, but I’m happy that they are back.’ In response to questions, HBC, which owns Zellers, said no other Zellers openings are planned, and would not say how long this store is expected to be open.

Raceway gets funding ‘lifeline’ Rideau Carleton would look to expand casino in the future Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Rideau Carleton Raceway and horse owners are breathing a sigh of relief after the province confirmed a $26.5-million lifeline to keep racing alive. The new funding program announced funding on March 31 to replace the Slots at Racetracks program, which the province axed two years ago. While the $26.5 million over five years won’t match the old funding, it’s enough to keep racing going, said Alex Lawryk, spokesman for the raceway. “It’s a positive step, but it’s not what we had,” Lawryk said. Before the old funding program was cancelled, Rideau Carleton hosted 154 races a year. With the new $5.25 million annual funding for five years, the raceway is looking to offer 90 races this season. The raceway has only been able to continue hosting racing for the past two years

because it had money from the previous slots program leftover after the funding was cancelled, Lawryk said. That money has now run out, so without the new funding, Rideau Carleton would have only offered “a few dozen” racing opportunities each year. That’s simply because the owners love and are committed to racing, which has been part of the raceway for 50 years, Lawryk said. “It would just be a local, regional-size track,” he said. “That would be the owner’s wish ... I’m sure they wouldn`t want to shut it down. If there was no gaming and no revenue, it would be very costly.” The two-year gap in funding and the uncertainty of the raceway’s future until now have left deep wounds in the local horse-racing industry, Lawryk said. “A lot of people, after two years, have left the business,” he said. “There are mixed feelings. People are quite interested in continuing, quite

excited about the possibility of continuing the industry in Ottawa, but it’s a lot less than it was. “We basically have to re-ignite the interest and rebuilding,” he said. CASINO EXPANSION RACETRACK’S FUTURE

Lawryk said the raceway hasn’t been told about a longterm strategy for funding horse racing after the fiveyear funding runs out, but at least in Rideau Carleton’s case, the facility is hoping to have a casino open by then. Last summer, city council voted to limit any expansion of gambling in Ottawa to the raceway site with the 21 gaming tables that has already been approved as part of a pilot project, and the existing 1,250 slot machines. Rideau Carleton is expecting “some effort” to be made to integrate horse racing into the site when it begins operating as a casino, but the province has yet to announce

Spring street sweeping begins April 14

the details of that integration plan. Additional activity at the raceway – along with more funding – is what Rideau Carleton is hoping for, Lawryk said. The wild card will be which political party is overseeing the program after the next provincial election, if a vote is called soon, he said. Lawryk said he is expecting an announcement with more information in the next month. The company that owns Rideau Carleton did express interest in being selected by the OLG to operate the future casino at their site, but the decision on short listing qualified bidders has been delayed, Lawryk said. If Rideau Carleton Entertainment wins the contract, Lawryk said a casino expansion would be a long-term certainty. “(The OLG) originally wanted the site to grow to 2,000 slot machines and three times the number of tables –

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Rideau Carleton Raceway will offer 90 horse-racing dates in the-2014-15 season thanks to the announcement of $5.25-million annual funding from the province for five years. something like 60 gaming tables (as part of the gambling modernization plan),” Lawryk said. “If the utilization of the 1,250 slot machines grows significantly, there is no reason why (the OLG)

couldn’t re-approach council and ask for a zoning change to ask for a couple hundred more slots. “In that 20 years, I’m sure there will be a need to review the numbers,” Lawryk said.

A bio-dome will be constructed at the Brewer Park Garden this month. The dome will allow gardeners to grow fresh food all year.

Brewer Park bio-dome work set to begin Permit, plans approved Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Once the ground thaws, a group of eager gardeners in Old Ottawa South will be ready to start building the city’s first bio-dome garden. The project, approved last year for a grant from the city’s Better Neighbourhood’s Office, will provide a cost-effective way to grow fresh food all year. Project manager Michael Oster said construction on the much-anticipated project should begin this month. The dome will be the first of its kind for the city, Oster said. “Our goal was to have it constructed in 2013,� Oster said, but timing and planning for the project made that impossible. Working with the city, Oster said the grant deadline was extended to make sure the project still could be completed. The group partnered with the Southeast Ottawa Community Centre to apply for funding for the project. According to Oster, the local firm Christopher Simmonds Architect Inc. played an instrumental role in guiding the project team to successfully apply to the city for the building permit, which was issued in February. “Given the complex nature of this ground-breaking project, it was not surprising that several iterations were required with city of Ottawa, throughout which Christopher Simmonds and his team were always highly professional, available, and creative in supporting us,� Oster said. Another local firm called EcoAce

is acting as the general contractor on a pro-bono basis. EcoAce’s founder, Guy Souliere, became interested in combining social enterprise and the environment, so he returned to study green business management at Algonquin College and studying permaculture design. Souliere said he became so excited about aquaponics and bio-domes that in 2011 he joined the founders of Brewer Park Community Garden, and became the build committee chairman, and presented the idea of aquaponics and year-round gardening to the group, which led to the inclusion of the bio-dome in the community garden’s ongoing vision. The committee had plans to hold a consultation on April 6 about the project for residents to learn more and to sign up for tasks for the building day. “We are eager for volunteers,� Oster said. The dome will be added to an already thriving garden, which has 70 garden boxes, including specific boxes for children, the resource centre, the food bank and berry boxes. Adding the bio-dome is just another step to the completion of the community garden, Oster said. “The bio-dome garden has always been part of the vision of the garden,� he said. Construction is planned for Earth Day, April 22 at the garden. Oster said he expects the construction to take a few days. There will be a grand opening ceremony and celebration Oster said will take place in either May or June. More information about the project and the garden is available at brewerparkcommunitygarden.weebly.com

Fernbank Road and Shea Road Roundabout Re-Commencement of Construction Scheduling Construction of the Fernbank Road and Shea Road Roundabout project is scheduled to restart in April 2014. Last year the realignment of the north leg of Shea Road by approximately 90 metres to the east was completed. This year a single lane roundabout at Fernbank Road and Shea Road is to be constructed. This project is to be completed by the end of the summer of 2014. The new roundabout will eliminate the offset between the north and south legs of Shea Road on Fernbank Road. It will also eliminate the stop controlled intersections at the two Fernbank and Shea intersections. Please be advised that construction scheduling is subject to changes due to weather conditions, unforeseen conditions, and availability of resources. Reinstatement of Private Landscaping Features Any damage to your lawn or driveway as a result of the City’s work will be repaired as soon as possible during construction, at no cost to you. Special Assistance Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please contact the undersigned. On-Street Parking In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a Temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be distributed to permit on-street parking within two blocks of your residence. Construction Disruptions The Contractor will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the operation of the work, such as delays and traffic detours when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.

Local case inspires the fight against bullying involved in the LGBT community.” Milmine left a lasting impression on the youth, inviting him to join him on his trip to the Senate. “The program is really exploding and Tad was happy to get youth involved,” said Bender. Milmine visits more than 300 schools every year. “I throw my heart and soul out there during presentations,” Milmine said. “I don’t have anything to hide about me, I’m too old for that.” He takes pride in his availability for those in need, personally answering every single email he receives.

News – In October 2011, Tad Milmine was browsing the Internet when he came across a news story about Jamie Hubley, a Kanata teenager who took his own life following years of bullying. Milmine was reminded of his own difficult childhood, when he was bullied at school, causing him to turn into an introvert with low self esteem. Inspired by Jamie’s story, the B.C. police officer decided to start an anti-bullying program called Bullying Ends Here, where he would travel to schools across Canada and share his story with students. One of his biggest goals is to make himself available to children who are distressed about being bullied. Bullying Ends Here attempts to teach students not to be bystanders and to work together collectively to stamp out the social problem. Milmine, formerly a constable in the RCMP, joined the Calgary Police Force in March. “I still remember the moment I read the story about Ja-

Tips and Tricks for window TreaTmenTs

This is a time-consuming project. Over the past year alone, he has received nearly 10,000 emails from teachers, students parents and others. Milmine said he’s encouraged by the positive response his talks have received from students. As a not-for-profit group, he relies on donations and charitable contribution to help spread the message. “We’re totally reliant on donations, nobody gets paid. It’s simply just to get the message out,” said Milmine. “I know what I’m doing is the right thing. I know what I’m doing is helping and working, I get to see that first hand.”

Tips and tricks for window treatments The windows in your home can often be a focal point of any room. With over 40 years of experience, Claudette at Decorating Den Interiors offers up four simple tips to refresh your home’s window treatments: Related Stories Why work with an Interior... 1) Soft background. Why not use your window treatment as a soft background, rather than a focal standout? If this look is for you, then use colours that blend easily into the surrounding walls. 2) Disguise an unattractive view. Not all windows lead the eye to a beautiful landscape. If your window looks out over an unattractive view, like a roadway or parking lot, you can disguise this view by incorporating a beautiful printed or textured sheer fabric on your window. This will allow

the sunlight to still shine through but will distract you from the view outside. 3) Add the unexpected. Accent your windows with tiebacks, fringe, or beads. It’s not only a clever way to get a unique custom look, but it will add a splash of the unexpected to your window treatment design. 4) Decide on the treatment effect. Before you select a window treatment design, it is important to decide on the overall effect you would like your window to have. You must decide how striking you want the treatment to be. Do you want the treatment to serve as a quiet background in your room, or would you prefer to have your window take center stage and become the room’s focal point? If you’re considering a window treatment makeover, consider Claudette at Decorating Den Ottawa. These interior design specialists have talented decorators that have been featured on HGTV and the Discovery Channel. With a large selection of window treatment samples to choose from, you are surely to find something to suit your personal taste and lifestyle.

Family gets help from WillPower Girls brandon.gillet@metroland.com

News - William Greer is your average five-year-old: he enjoys video games and playing outside with his friends. Through his care-free, fun-loving exterior, one would never suspect he suffers from hydrocephalus caused by a tumour on his brain stem. Just over a year-and-a-half ago, William’s parents Patrick and Lindsay Greer began to notice some changes in their son. He was experiencing vision loss, weak immunity to common bugs, and his teachers noted increased difficulty getting along with the routine at school. After some mixed opinions from various doctors, they were told it was nothing to worry about. The symptoms subsided setting William’s parents temporarily at ease. Little did they know that the appearance of William getting better actually meant he was getting worse. “The gravity had not really set in at that point,” said Patrick. “It was once the symptoms became severe that we became really concerned.” Hydrocephalus, sometimes referred to as “water on the brain,” is a condition which causes the build-up of spinal fluid in one or more of the brains ventricles, usually due to a tumour. Symptoms of hydrocephalus in children William’s age range from cognitive issues like difficulty to learn new things and overall academic performance to physical issues like vision loss, constant fatigue, problems with balance and coordination, seizures, enlarged skull and in severe cases where complications arise, even death. William’s improvement was caused by the blockage in his fourth ventricle. The pressure became so high that a membrane had burst which caused the spinal fluid to naturally drain. When the symptoms returned, they were worse adding trouble walking, balancing, fatigue, and a new found fear of heights. “He has struggled with fatigue,” said Patrick. “From before the diagnosis and since he just hasn’t regained the stamina and cognition.” Treatments for William’s condition can come in the form of chemo and radiation therapy. Neurosurgery can also be an option, but unfortunately not in William’s case due to the proximity of the tumour to his brain stem. Life for the Greers could very well be a lifelong battle

filled with MRIs, treatments and regular check-ups. “We’ve done imaging on a regular basis and unfortunately they’ve shown that the tumour has continued to grow,” said Patrick, fighting back tears. “So we’ve recently been back to decide how we are going to continue. There are treatments that are going to be necessary to ensure we can at least stop the growth.” William has had two procedures done involving shunts being implanted. The first led to a difficult recovery as his body had adapted to the increased pressure. The second was a replacement with an approximate recovery time of 36 hours. He is scheduled to begin chemotherapy this week. Despite his young age, William has a good understanding of his condition. He knows how it works and when information is being held back. Despite this he remains in good spirits, the fun-loving boy they know. He wants to invent a new form of MRI someday, one which isn’t so closed in as he doesn’t enjoy the isolation of the machine. “He still wants to play and be a kid,” said Lindsay. “He is very upbeat and his personality is the same.”

FUTURE SHOP CORRECTION NOTICE

NEWSPAPER RETRACTION FOR THE FUTURE SHOP APRIL 4 CORPORATE FLYER In the April 4 flyer, page 5, the HP All-In-One PC Featuring AMD E1 APU With Radeon HD Graphics (WebCode: 10283826) was advertised with incorrect specs. Please be advised that this all-in-one has Integrated AMD Radeon HD 8240 Discrete-Class Graphics NOT a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 730A Dedicated Graphics Card, as previously advertised.

William’s ordeal is a lifelong condition involving many treatments and imaging every two months for at least the next three years according to his parents. They are thankful to CHEO for all the support. “We’ve adapted and found new ways to make it more comfortable because it’s not pleasant, but it’s something that we have to go through,” said Patrick. Cue the kindness of the human heart. Local designers Kelly James, Candace Plotz, and Sarah Kidder have teamed up as the WillPower Girls to provide the Greer family with a complete basement makeover. Together with Dan Smith of Strokes of Genius Painting, and Matt Irish of Right Angle Renovations, along with support through social media and renovation suppliers, the Greer family will have their basement finished and decorated to give them a comfortable space. “Originally we thought bedroom, but this way the whole family can enjoy it,” said Kidder. “Somewhere for them to spend quality time together.” According to Kidder, it started about a year ago when the WillPower Girls first talked about doing something for the Greer’s

but couldn’t decide what. “We were all having dinner as friends during Kindness Week which originally sparked the idea,” said Plotz. After revisiting the idea this year, the girls put the project in full swing. They approached Smith, who works regularly with Kidder, to do the painting and construction. He quickly agreed to do the work at no charge. “When she contacted us to see if we wanted to be involved we said of course,” said Smith. While some items are being donated, others will need to be paid for. To help with this, the team has set up a fundraiser through ucaring.com which has already received donations exceeding $4,000 in slightly more than three weeks. “That will cover materials which are hard to get donated like drywall and studs,” said Smith. Along with the online findraiser, there has been no shortage of support on social media on their Facebook page, facebook.com/thewillpowerproject and their blog, willpowergirls. blogspot.ca, as well as countless friends raising money to help out. They can also be found on Twitter, @willpowergirls.

Airport Parkway Pedestrian/ Cycling Bridge – April 10, 2014 Update On April 2, 2014, the contractor began mobilizing on the work site and focused on clean-up and other preparatory work. Once the preparatory work is complete, the contractor will excavate the existing formwork and install the new formwork and reinforcing steel. The revised design is undergoing completion and staff are expected to provide updated information regarding the schedule once the design is ready. To ensure safety for everyone, relevant traffic signs are now in place and construction zone speed limits are set to 60 km/h. I will continue to provide you with updates, and I want to assure you that I will continue advocating to make certain that this project is built safely and to the highest quality standards.

Haircut event to raise much-needed funds Child-organized event to raise money for wigs for cancer patients Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - According to 10-yearold Anneka O’Grady, she has been growing her hair for a long, long time. Her golden locks are now down to her waist, but on April 27 she’ll be chopping it off for a fundraiser she and mom Susan O’Grady are organizing in Old Ottawa South. “I don’t really like to see people suffering and when they have cancer, it seems really worse,” Anneka said. “This is helping people and that’s something that’s really important.” The O’Gradys created the event, Care with Hair, with Hair Republic partner Michelle Nguyen as a way to raise money for Angel Hair for Kids. Typically. Donated hair needs to be at least 30.5 centimetres long, but that is what makes this event that much more special: Anneka said any child can come and get their hair cut for a donation of $10 to $20. To keep the event all about kids, only children 12 and under can participate. Susan O’Grady said she sees the event as her daughter, and other children, helping children. “This all started because she (Anneka) wanted to do something to help and then it grew because she thought others would like to do the same thing,” O’Grady said. “Any kid can participate and all the money goes to the foundation.” The non-profit foundation provides wigs and hair loss solutions to financially disadvantage children

Schoolmates Jeff and Ian Zamuner and her brother Bryan will participate in the kids-only event. who have lost their hair due to medical conditions or cancer treatments. According to the foundation, providing one child with a wig can cost upwards of $1,000, so Anneka and her mom said that is exactly how much money the group aims to raise. “The neat thing to me is that even boys, who typically don’t have 10 or 12 inches (25 to 30.5 centimetres) to donate can also participate in this event,” O’Grady said.

In an effort to raise that much, the family fundraisers approached Nguyen, their neighbourhood stylist, to see she could offer a few haircut appointments at her salon for the event. The salon was quick to help, offering a total of 100 slots for the event, and staff to help for free. “I felt it was an amazing idea and happy to help,” Nguyen said. “We are all about the community and wanted to make it a great event.”

All the proceeds will be donated to the foundation. The day will include more than just haircuts – the salon will have face painting and donated gelato from the salon’s business neighbour, Stella Luna Café. So far Anneka has already managed to get 30 fellow school children signed up for the event, but Nguyen said there are plenty of more spots available for the cause. “I would encourage everyone to

come out to the event, even if they don’t want to get their hair cut, people should come out and donate,” Nguyen said. The haircutting fun begins 11 a.m. at the salon, 1093 Bank St. For more information visit hairrepublic.ca or to book an appointment, call 613-695-0789 and indicate whether you would like your child to have a quick cut or a cut and style.

Community group seeking Glebe Collegiate heritage designation Work continues similar move for Clemora Park, Estates West area Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A heritage designation could be on the cards for Glebe Collegiate. The heritage committee of the Glebe Community Association announced on March 25 that it would be seeking a provincial heritage designation for the 92-year-old building. Back in November, the committee said it would begin looking for specific buildings for designation in an effort to help preserve history in the neighbourhood. According to the committee, the school is an excellent candidate for designation, based on the following points: • It is a landmark, and any significant alterations or its loss would greatly impact its surroundings • It was designed by J. Albert Ewart and built in 1922. It is of architectural significance, and its façade has been used in many films. • Its sports fields and setting is a key feature of that part of the Glebe • Its heritage features are largely intact outside and it has several unique interior features still intact, including the auditorium.

Heritage committee chairwoman Johanna Persohn said the city told her that there is a heritage file on the school and has been the subject of many inquiries, but no formal request to designate the school has been made. “We are looking at continuing to investigate this designation,” Persohn told those in attendance at the association’s March 25 meeting. Any formal request from the heritage committee, Persohn said, would first be approved by the association, before any submission was made to the city. In addition to conducting further research on the school, the committee is also pursuing a potential designation for all or part of the western part of the Clemora Park/Estates West area. In February, the committee held a consultation meeting about the designation, with thirty people in attendance. The goal of the consultations, Persohn said, is to get more residents motivated to learn about and promote heritage in the Glebe. The committee will be taking on the bulk of research work for the project, but residents are welcome to share research or start their own research on their homes or others in the neighbourhood. Residents interested in getting involved in the research, or to learn more about the project are invited to contact Persohn by email at heritage@glebeca.ca.

Day of Purple raises epilepsy awareness Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

Celebrating Volunteers

Volunteers are an integral part of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa’s (CASO) work, generously donating approximately 30,000 hours of their time each year. Volunteer tasks are varied and flexible, matching interests and skills with volunteer positions and working with people’s busy schedules. While some of CASO’s volunteer opportunities require a moderate time commitment, Special Assignments allow for more flexibility and can include: organizing, event management, providing entertainment, or acting as photographers at events. Volunteer Drivers support children and youth in care by providing a safe non-judgmental space where they can comfortably sit in silence or speak with an attentive listener. Child Access Volunteers similarly help to provide a safe space by supervising visits between parents and children. Pre-School Volunteers and Tutor/ Mentors provide more formalized guidance. Pre-School Volunteers assist professional staff, guiding children from three months to five years through a variety of weekly programs. Tutors/ Mentors, under the supervision of the case worker, help school-aged children with subjects like math, english and science, encouraging students to develop their interests and build educational goals. Volunteering with CASO is a learning opportunity for the volunteers themselves as they undergo training, work collaboratively with fellow volunteers and staff and develop relationships with foster parents and the families we serve. April 6-12, 2014 is National Volunteer Week, an opportunity for us to take stock of the time that volunteers across the country donate daily. We would like to take this opportunity to formally thank our volunteers for their tireless work. Their contribution to supporting children and youth in care, and the Ottawa community more broadly, makes a difference every day and every hour.

Community - From purple shirts to purple face paint and even a few purple hair extensions, the theme at city hall on March 29 was clear: purple was in. Day of Purple was held to recognize, as March as Epilepsy Awareness Month several days after the International Day of Purple, March 26, which fell on a Wednesday this year. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder which causes seizures, and can often be treated with medication. The day included speeches, a purple flag raising, balloons, face painting and a photo station with the caption Seize The Day written on it. Purple Day was founded by Halifax’s Cassidy Megan, now 15, when she was in Grade 3. Cassidy, who has epilepsy, travelled to Ottawa with her family to take part in the day. She said she didn’t like to tell her friends that she had epilepsy as a child, because she thought they would make fun of her and tease her. “In Grade 2 the Epilepsy As-

lepsy. “It’s just amazing to see so many people here, I can’t believe it,” Epilepsy OttawaCarleton director Lori Timmins said, adding the event has quickly spread internationally. “Seeing a photo from Purple Day in Africa this year was just unbelievable.” Approximately 15,000 peo-

ple in the Ottawa area have epilepsy, according to Epilepsy Ottawa-Carleton. Mayor Jim Watson attended the event to present the event organizers with a plaque, and help raise the purple flag next to the city’s Rink of Dreams. Purple Day is now celebrated in more than 70 countries around the world.

CITY OF OTTAWA CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT COMBINED SEWAGE STORAGE TUNNEL NOTICE OF FILING OF ADDENDUM In February 2013, the City of Ottawa completed a ‘Schedule C’ Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to develop a preferred solution and functional design for additional storage of combined sewage in the ultimate combined sewer area of Ottawa. In 2013, Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel (CSST) Environmental Study Report (ESR) was completed. The preferred design of the CSST consists of an east-west tunnel (EWT) through the downtown core from LeBreton Flats to New Edinburgh Park and a north-south tunnel (NST) along Kent Street from Catherine Street to the existing outfall north of Wellington Street. The 2013 ESR concluded that the preferred design for the NST would include a construction staging area in St. Laurent Square. METROLAND

Despite higher-than-average snowfall and a cooler spring, the Rideau Conservation Authority isn’t worried about water levels along the Rideau River.

After consultation took place during preliminary design of the CSST in 2014, it was determined that the CSST could be extended south to Chamberlain Street for an alternative construction staging area for the NST. The resulting change in the preferred construction staging area requires additional property. An addendum is required to evaluate the potential environmental implications.

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Despite higherthan-average snowfall and a cooler spring, the Rideau Conservation Authority isn’t worried about rising water levels along the Rideau River. Temperatures in the watershed remain below normal for this time of year, which is delaying spring snowmelt flows, the conservation announced on April 2. Snow measurements were completed by the RVCA technicians on March 31. The snowpack covering the watershed was an average depth of 35 centimetres and a water content of 123 millimetres. Both about 3.5 times normal – understandable since the snow has typically gone by this time. Daytime temperatures have been causing snow melting, but there isn’t too much concern about runoff because the snowpack is still large enough to absorb the melting and rainwater. Streamflows and lake levels continue to be below

normal. Low temperatures at or below freezing at night continue to slow the melt process. Progress has also been slow for the City of Ottawa’s ice removal program on the lower Rideau River. The city has been working to get the river open, but colder temperatures and unusual ice thickness have made the task a challenge. If large volumes of ice remain in the river from Bronson Avenue to Montreal Road when a more dramatic increase in runoff rates occurs, there is a possibility of ice jam formation in certain locations. The conservation authority and city officials are monitoring the situation. The authority did warn that shifting ice due to increased water levels and pooled, melted water on top of the ice could pose safety risks. Caution should be exercised by anyone living close to streams or rivers. The authority will continue to monitor the situation and issue statements as warranted. For more information, visit www.rvca. ca.

By this Notice, the Addendum is being placed on the public record in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (2000, as amended 2007 and 2011). Please note that only the changes proposed in the Addendum are open for review.

Model T nearly gives up the ghost in Renfrew

‘F

inally!” Mother said, as Father backed the old Model T out of the drive shed where it had been sitting up on blocks since the first heavy snowfall. That meant our trips into Renfrew no longer meant hitching up the horse and cutter, or in some cases, the team and the flat-bottom sleigh every Saturday for our weekly supplies. We were all so excited. Mother said she saw no reason why we five children couldn’t go in as well, since it was our first trip with the car that year. It didn’t take long for us to get out of our Saturday work clothes and into our next-toSunday-best, wash our faces, comb our hair, and make sure our necks were clean. Why anyone in Renfrew would give a hoot in Hades if the Haneman children had clean necks or not was a mystery to me. The old car sure wasn’t much to look at, with one back door missing, a fender that was painted an entirely different colour from the rest of the car, and a hole as big as a pie plate in the back floor

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories where I had to sit being the youngest, and from which point all I could see was the Northcote Side Road zooming by. It was a lovely day for a first drive, Mother commented, as Father turned out of our lane, and passed Briscoe’s General Store. I could hear the purr of the engine, as he worked the lever under the steering wheel increasing the speed. It was a bone shattering ride over the washboard road, and the dust blew into the open car like brown clouds. My sister Audrey wisely brought a silk scarf, which she tied around her face. The rest of us covered our eyes as best we could. Father cut the gas back as we headed down Raglan Street, looking for a place to park the Model T. And suddenly, just like the run-down

of a windup clock the Model T gave a gasp, and stopped dead in the middle of the street. Father shoved the gas lever up and down, pulled on the choke, and the car with a mind of its own, sat there like a big black lump of clay. Father got out with the crank, and with the sweat pouring off his face, his arm flying off the crank on occasion, and the Model T, like a rebellious child, refused to catch. It wouldn’t have been so bad if Father had been able to steer the car into the curb, but there it sat, right in the middle of Raglan Street. Audrey offered me a nickel if I would change places with her. She wanted on the floor so no one would see her. I said I would consider it for a dime. All she had was a nickel, so I stayed crouched on the floor. Mother was fanning

Meet Kernels (A161415), a three-year-old bichon frise, is looking for a forever home to call his very own. Kernels is a quiet and loving little guy who would be well-matched with an active and confident owner. He enjoys taking daily walks and chasing leaves, and requires regular exercise to keep him happy and healthy. Kernels would love a companion who can help him build his confidence around new friends. He is very affectionate towards people and could live in a home with older or dog-savvy children. Kernels gets along well with calm dogs that don’t play too rough with him. He would prefer a home that is feline-free and would benefit from obedience training to build a bond with his new family and help him bone up on his manners. Regular grooming and brushing will reduce shedding and make Kernels feel like a pampered prince! He loves to play with toys - especially tennis balls! Kernels could fetch all day, especially when there’s treats involved.

News - Students from the public relations program at Algonquin College are teaming up with Partners for Mental Health for the headSTRONG campaign. Over the next two weeks they will raise funds and awareness for mental health in Canada. The students will hold 12 functions such as sporting events, auctions and comedy nights to raise funds for the cause. They will also collect names on a petition to raise awareness. While PMH runs an ongoing program called Right by You, which focuses on youth mental health, headSTRONG looks at the issue in general and is entirely designed and run by Algonquin PR students. The basis of both programs hinges on the fact that three of four Canadians who need help don’t get it. “To us that’s real troubling,” said PMH president Jeff Moat. “So what we’re trying to do is raise the collective awareness of Canadians about this issue, and to get them to have their voices heard.” According to Algonquin student and media relations officer

Brandon Gillet/Metroland

Algonquin College announces the headSTRONG campaign. Students from the public relations program will raise funds and awareness for mental health over the next two weeks. for the campaign, Simon Heaton, studies show that one-infive Canadians are affected by mental health issues daily. “It’s these kinds of numbers that shocked us,” said Heaton. “But it also opened our eyes because none of us knew that. It’s due to the stigma that people don’t want to talk about mental

health. “The main goal of the campaign is not only to raise funds for the organization, but to raise awareness and remove that stigma that surrounds the topic.” The petitions act as the “collective voice” of Canadians, according to Moat. They are a good way to show that the is-

sues do matter and that people want to see change. “We’ve heard many times meeting with our elected officials at the federal and provincial levels that they want to understand if this is indeed a topic that is near and dear to the hearts of Canadians,” said Moat. “So we’re using the petition as a vehicle to do just that.” The alignment with Algonquin students, said Moat, will help leverage their creativity, energy and drive to carry out the campaign. PMH is a non-profit organization dedicated to changing how we think about, act towards, and treat mental health in Canada. Downloadable awareness raising and advocacy toolkits are available through their website at www.partnersformh. ca and are designed to help residents get involved from simply starting a petition, to getting in touch with elected officials in order to have a conversation on the issue. “We feel what’s needed most is the public to be mobilized around the issue,” said Moat. “To ultimately take action and put pressure in the right areas of the system and make change happen.” R0012632730

For the kabobs, cut each cucumber into six pieces. Cut each pepper into eight chunks. On eight, 20-centimetre (eight-inch) bamboo or metal skewers, thread one piece each

of cucumber, pepper and tomato; repeat twice. Brush each kabob liberally with dressing and place on a lettuce-lined platter or individual plates. Sprinkle with feta and serve with remaining dressing. Tip: Set out small bowls of prepared vegetables and have the kids create their own kabob combination. Foodland Ontario

Whether you’re celebrating an Easter family dinner or a spring get-together with friends, our bone-in smoked ham leg is sure to please. Naturally smoked over a blend of alder and maple hardwoods for a distinctively sweet flavour, it's easy to carve and ready to serve.

Preparation

If you would like to eat your art, there are cooking classes available for young and old alike. If you really want to keep your hands clean while being creative, there are several classes available across the city that involve drawing, sketching, bead jewellery, calligraphy and screen writing. Learning more about your digital camera will be useful for taking those summer holiday photos.

ho

Kabobs * Four mini cucumbers * Half each sweet red, yellow and orange pepper * 24 grape tomatoes * 8 leaves of Boston or leaf lettuce * 45 ml (3 tbsp) Greek feta cheese

Everyone knows the creative process can be rewarding and fulfilling for adults without being messy. But, let’s face it: sometime getting your hands dirty is half the fun. It’s not just for kids anymore. Whether you want your creativity to be mucky and yucky, or clean and pristine, there is bound to be something interesting near you listed in the City of Ottawa’s Recreation eGuide available at ottawa.ca/recreation. There is probably no better way to make a mess than through pottery. Artists at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre produce more than 50,000 pieces of art each year. This year, some of them can be yours. Think about Sculptural Handbuilding or maybe the Wheel and Handbuilding Combo.

Ingredients

Dressing • 175 ml (3/4 cup) plain yogurt • 1 clove garlic, pressed through garlic press • 15 ml (1 tbsp) minced red onion • 10 ml (2 tsp) red wine vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil • 4 ml (3/4 tsp) dried oregano • 0.5 ml (1/8 tsp) each salt and freshly ground pepper

Sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty

An Easter Adventure at City of Ottawa Museums With Easter just over a week away, it’s time to shake off the chill of winter, welcome spring and enjoy the renewal that this time of year brings. It’s also time for the City of Ottawa museums to invite you back for a new season and the opportunity to spend time together as a family. Join us on April 19 to celebrate the traditions of spring as the Easter Bunny comes out of hiding at most of the City’s museums to spend time with the children and join them in the hunt for Easter eggs. There will also be petting zoos and gardening activities to help teach young visitors about agriculture’s place in Ottawa’s history. They will also learn about natural materials used to dye Easter eggs long before prepackaged kits became mainstream. Depending on which museum and event you choose to attend, you may also find yourself helping to make sock bunnies, learning local historical trivia from giant carrots, and taking a turn with a balloon artist specializing in bunnies and baby chicks. At one museum, you’ll even discover new information about pop culture’s most famous bunnies – like Bugs Bunny, Peter Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland’s White Rabbit, and even the Duracell and Energizer bunnies. Make sure to visit ottawa.ca/museums or our Facebook pages to find out about the activities offered at each museum or historic site. All of the museums will hold similar activities; however, there are unique aspects to each particular site. Choose the event and location that best suits your family’s interests. The museum Easter Adventure will be held on Saturday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m at the locations listed below. Admission costs vary from $6 to $7 per person, and $16 to $18 per family. • • • •

Aries, you may need to come up with some new ways to show your affection, as your old ways are starting to fall short. Look to Leo for inspiration. Taurus, a few kinks still need to be worked out, but your master plan will soon be in place. Start putting the wheels in motion and your work won’t go unrecognized. Gemini, you are great at creating a good time out of nothing at all. Get together with a few friends and let the good times roll. Others may envy this talent. You have a rare opportunity to show off your skills this week, Cancer. When your talents are on display, don’t worry about hogging that spotlight. Enjoy your time in the limelight. Take some time for quiet inspiration, Leo. It is just what you need after a busy week in which your stamina was put to the test. Rest and recharge for a few days. Tasks at work have certainly tried your patience, Virgo. Just when you are settled in, you get pulled in another direction very quickly. Save up those vacation days.

It’s time to lighten up, Libra. Throw a party, take a trip or hang out with friends. Just be sure to focus on fun and let other concerns fall by the wayside for a little while. Scorpio, do your best to get all of your ducks in a row this week. Keep distractions at bay and don’t allow social engagements to take precedence over more pressing matters. Sagittarius, you will have to remain two steps ahead of everyone else to get a project done this week. Things are moving quite quickly now, so make every minute count. A challenge is on the horizon, Capricorn. But remain calm and you will handle every challenge that comes your way. Aries provides some extra help. Aquarius, some may call you stubborn, but “dedicated” might be a more appropriate term. Once your mind is set, it is hard to pull you off course, and this week is no different. You have plenty of energy to carry you through to the weekend, Pisces. A big surprise is in store in the coming days.

This weeks puzzle answers in next weeks issue

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!

Finding your next used car is as easy as pie. The best way to find your next used car.
