The river wild As winter quickly subsides, fans of whitewater kayaking venture to Bate Island in Ottawa’s west end to partake in a popular summer pastime. Rain and warm temperatures mean water levels on the Ottawa River have increased enough to allow for solid waves.

Community - Hintonburg residents are surprised by the findings of a bus rider count they performed at Lebreton Station on April 1. The study of transit users during peak morning hours is part of the community’s continued reaction to last year’s announcement of a two-yearlong detour of all Transitway buses onto Scott and Albert streets during the construction of the Confederation Line light rail corridor. The Hintonburg community knows there will be bus diversion pains for residents living near Scott and Albert during the 2016-2018 Transitway shutdown, but is seeking to mitigate the impact by advocating for some buses to take alternate routes. “OC Transpo and (mayor Jim Watson) have said if people have to transfer buses,

it will cause them to stop taking the bus and get into a car,” said Cheryl Parrott, a Hintonburg Community Association board member. “We’ve been proposing that some transit users going east transfer at Lincoln Fields (using the John A. Macdonald Parkway), and others heading west transfer at Lebreton Station.” To get a better sense of what the bus detours would mean in terms of human traffic, and how existing infrastructure would handle it, a dozen volunteers took to the street to record a typical morning rush hour. On the morning of April 11, between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m., a dozen volunteers armed with counters descended on the area around Lebreton Station. Lebreton serves as a key transfer point for riders heading to and from Gatineau. See CROWDED, page 20

Planning department will draft nine new community design plans in 2014 Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Decisions made by the city’s planning department aren’t always popular, but they are well-informed, said general manager John Moser as he outlined the land-use policy projects

his staff will tackle in 2014. He presented a list of projects the department will undertake in 2014, including which communities and main streets will get new plans to guide future development. Following on the heels of the updated Official Plan approved last fall, the city will re-

view 32 zoning bylaws that will need updating in order to implement the goals of the plan. In the city’s central area, zoning bylaw update projects that will get underway in 2014 include: a review of building heights allowed in the Billings Bridge mixed-use centre, an im-

plementation policy for permitted uses on Main Street in Old Ottawa East, as well as building height and permitted uses reviews for traditional main streets including Gladstone Avenue, Somerset Street, Bronson Avenue, Preston Street, Dalhousie Street and McArthur Avenue. See INFILL, page 10

Site plan filed for Hintonburg condo Document hints at taller second phase in future Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - The condos are already on sale, but the paperwork for a new development in Hintonburg has just been filed with the city. Tamarack Investments has submitted a site plan control for the property at 1140 Wellington St. West, adjacent to both the Rosemount Branch library and the Grace Manor care facility. The condo – marketed as Tamarack Wellington – would be six storeys tall and contain 52 units, with 563 square metres of ground-floor retail space and 58 parking spaces on two underground levels. The site plan only concerns the first phase of the property redevelopment, which would occupy what is currently a parking lot. The building would front onto both Wellington and Rosemount. A rezoning application submitted in September of last year laid out the land use of the site, with the area’s community design plan limiting buildings fronting onto Wellington to six storeys. The city granted the applicant the ability to build nine storeys fronting onto Parkdale Avenue and 13 storeys at the rear of the site. Also as part of the rezoning, the Bethany Hope Centre building received a heritage designation, meaning the owner would have to maintain it as part of the development. The lawn fronting onto Wellington

West would also be kept. Wellington West’s traditional mainstreet designation states that any building fronting onto the street should be four to six storeys in height, a requirement the Tamarack Wellington conforms to. Hintonburg Community Association president Matt Whitehead said initial consultations with the applicant were “fairly positive.” “There’s nothing against the CDP,” said Whitehead, adding the

site is larger than people realize, given that most of it is out of sight from passers-by. The site plan control references the rehabilitation of the existing heritage building and construction of a 13-storey building in the project’s second phase, though no timeline is mentioned. The comment period for the site plan ends on May. 7, with a decision expected to be rendered by the city’s planning department on June 8.

The flooring you purchase for your home will be the second largest and broadest expanse of colour in a room (the second being walls). With floors being the most permanent feature, replaced less easily and less frequently than wall treatments and upholstered furniture, it is important to purchase floors that will sustain the test of time and have an eye to the future. If you are installing flooring into your new home or are considering replacing existing floor treatments, consider contacting Claudette at Decorating Den Interiors http:// www.claudette.decoratingden.com/ for all of your flooring needs. With hundreds of sample floor treatments, you are sure to find something that will suit your lifestyle and personal taste. Claudette and her Decorating Den’s team of designer experts can help you customize the

In estimating what you are willing to invest, consider the life span of your floor covering. This will help you give you a truer picture of cost and what is the most economical for you, your budget, and your lifestyle. Modern technology has made flooring more attractive, varied and practical. Such natural materials as wood, marble, stone, slate, clay tile and wool are still high in initial cost, but may not be in the long run because of their durability. Man-made flooring materials such as vinyl and carpets of synthetic fibres come in price ranges able to fit almost any reasonable budget. When buying new floors, consider using the services of a professional interior decorator like Claudette at Decorating Den Interiors; she will assist you in this very important and large buying decision.

News - A group of Carleton students can’t wait to get their hands on live human tissue. The health sciences students recently launched a $25,000 fundraising initiative on Carleton University’s crowd-funding website, FutureFunder, in an effort to raise enough money to transform how they study anatomy at the school. The money raised would help purchase preparations of both the spinal cord and blood vessels of the brain. “Currently we are using plastic specimens where everything is perfect,” said Rebecca Yaworski, one of the students involved. “It’s obvious and easy.

Albert Street reconstruction work to begin soon Street work paves way – literally – for LRT bus detours Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Prep work will soon get under way on what promises to be a very busy construction season for the western end of Albert Street. As part of the city’s Confederation Line light rail project, the stretch of Albert Street on Lebreton Flats will see extensive work take place above and below ground both this summer and next. Besides upgrading (and widening) the roadway to handle expected traffic from detoured buses, the reconstruction will see the installation of new segregated storm water and sewer pipes (replacing an antiquated combined system), and new water mains, as well as new signalization and streetscape improvements. At the city’s open house for the project, held April 8 at the Dalhousie Community Centre, resident feedback was collected on what city staff believe are the likely

timelines and outcomes associated with the project. The schedule was not yet set in stone because the city’s LRT contractor, the Rideau Transit Group, is handling the project and its associated tenders. Ravi Mehta, program manager at the city’s rail implementation office, said the tender for the project closed on April 7, though no contractors have been named yet. Civic works for this year include the sewer and water main work on Albert, stretching from just west of City Centre Avenue to Rochester Street. Expansion of the roadway edge to the north to accommodate detoured buses from 2016 to 2018 will also take place. One lane in each direction will be left open for the entirety of the work. With that work expected to wrap up by the end of the year, next construction season will likely see the same activity between Rochester Street and Empress Avenue, with similar lane closures. In the summer of 2016,

the side streets to the south of Albert - Empress, Perkins Street and Lorne Street - will undergo the same treatment, thus upgrading all the underground infrastructure on Lebreton Flats. Those streets will remain open to pedestrians and local traffic. Though it was all eventually slated for replacement, the work to install new below-grade infrastructure in the area was expedited as a result of the LRT project. Another element of the work, which poses more obstacles for drivers and local residents, is the closure of Booth Street in order to build an overpass across the LRT line. An extension of Preston Street will be required to carry vehicles to a point on Booth north of the Transitway. “The Preston Street detour is expected to begin construction in late 2014,� said Mehta. “It’s supposed to be open in January 2015.� While the noise and disruption that comes with con-

struction was a concern for residents, so too was the final appearance of the street once all LRT activities in the area wrap up in 2018. At that time, the temporary bus lanes will be removed, cycle tracks will be installed, and landscaping will be added. As with the construction timeline, the final appearance of the street as described at the public meeting could be subject to change. Dalhousie Community Association member Eric Darwin said while the community isn’t please with the bus detour – an ongoing issue in itself – the tentative final design of Albert Street has many strong points. “I’m quite pleased with the direction it’s going,� said Darwin. “It’s a complete street, with a bike lane on both sides, and where they couldn’t put vegetation on the south side of Albert, they put it in the median.� He said the addition of a traffic signal at City Centre

Construction and restricted travel will be the reality for residents living near Albert Street this summer and next. Water main and sewer replacement will be taking place as part of the city’s LRT project. Avenue, along with the modification of the poor-visibility intersection, will be beneficial for users of Bayview Station and future residents in the City Centre area. “The reality is it’s a four-

lane street‌and you’re not going to get rid of the million cars a day that go down it – that’s just the hand we’re given,â€? said Darwin. “If it actually gets built like this, we’ll be quite pleased.â€?

Tragically Hip guitarist brings history to life Tyler Follett tyler.follett@metroland.com

News - Typically when Rob Baker is in front of an audience he’s slashing at his guitar to on a stage in a hockey rink. The Tragically Hip guitarist traded his instrument and the show to take part in Ottawa’s debut National Capital History Day on April 4 at the Confederation Education Centre as the keynote speaker. He also took part in a Q and A session, answering student’s questions. “Personally I find it terrifying doing public speaking,” said Baker. “I thought I’d get out of my comfort zone and give it a shot.” The event is based on the similar National History Day started in the United States in 1974 as a way to celebrate the past and educate students. Endorsed by both the Ottawa public and Catholic school boards, students from high schools around Ottawa showcased their history projects recognizing events of

Rob Baker, left, and Mayor Jim Watson take part in the inaugural event on National Capital History Day. The Tragically Hip guitarist gave the keynote speech at the event, explaining history’s importance in our daily lives, while Watson helped hand out at the student awards for history projects. significance. Projects were displayed and judged by a panel, with the day concluding with awards being given out in a ceremony attended by Mayor

Jim Watson. “Looking at the other exhibits has been cool,” said Ryan Mannion, a Grade 10 student at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School.

Mannion had an exhibit on display at the event. “It’s nice watching people look at your own exhibit.” After giving his speech, Baker took part in a ques-

tion-and-answer session with students. “Having to lecture or give a speech is not my thing,” said Baker, with a laugh. “I love the Q and A; you get to talk to people so I enjoy that.” The theme of the event was Turning Points in History: People, Ideas and Events. The Tragically Hip have been incorporating Canadian history in their music since their inception. The band are themselves a big part of Canadian music history with 14 Juno Awards to their name. Songs like Nautical Disaster, Fifty Mission Cap and Wheat Kings were inspired by Canada in the second World War, the Toronto Maple Leafs and life in Western Canada respectively. The group values the importance of understanding history, teaching through their music. Canada’s most famous guitar, Voyageur, was at the event with Baker getting a chance to add his name to an impressive list of users including Stompin’ Tom Connors. The guitar is made with

items of historical significance to Canada, from the Bluenose II to Paul Henderson’s hockey stick. Baker was happy to be a part of the inaugural history day. “It’s really a fascinating event,” he said. “I think there should be a lot more of this kind of thing. The guest speakers played a big part in making the successful event. “The opening video greeting from Chris Hadfield had a huge impact on the day itself and students,” said Kristin Riddell, Vice-Principal of Sir Robert Borden High School. “The interactions for students among our teachers, judges and special guests like Jowi Taylor, Rob Baker and Jim Watson was a wonderful experience.” Organizers are already looking ahead to next year, hoping to build off a strong debut. “It was fantastic, it really exceeded our expectations,” said Alison Peters, registrar and one of the organizers, “We’re really looking forward to next year already.”

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority will be conducting Public Consultation sessions on proposed bell time changes and new walk zone maps.

Be alert to eating disorder signs EMC news - Everyday desires to look good and be in shape can slip into problem thoughts and behaviours. Here are some signs to look out for: • Excessive concern about weight, shape and calories. • Over-exercise and guilt if exercise regime is not kept. • Guilt, shame or secrecy about eating. • Strict avoidance of certain foods, particularly those considered fattening. • Feeling fat regardless of body-size. • Weight, shape and food control determining how a person feels about their worth. How you can help: • Learn as much as possible about eating disorders. • Let the person know that you are concerned and are there to help them. • Focus on the person’s overall well-being, not food and their weight. • Be patient and compassionate.

Sleep: the new prescription for your kids

I

t can be overwhelming to parent in the digital age. There’s so much advice out there about what to feed kids, how to discipline them and what sorts of extracurricular activities will make them well-rounded, perhaps even perfect, children. Frankly, much of it’s tosh. And as most of us try, inconsistently, to follow the latest advice trends – freefrom diets, punish-reward systems of discipline, prescription medication – we are simultaneously seeing a rise in overweight and obesity, constipation, attention deficit disorder, anxiety and behavioural problems in children. Our heads clouded with conflicting information on the Internet, maybe the solution is simpler than we realize: How well are our children sleeping? You may think that’s ridiculous, but sleep is the new vitamin and most of us aren’t getting enough, including children and adolescents. The more I talk to parents, the more I realize most kids seem to have obvious prob-

and fewer tantrums. So the next time you’re reading about the latest quick-fix for your children’s health or behaviour, you may want to take a step back and check the clock.

Some have toddlers that refuse to nap, there are school-aged children awake at all hours of the night, others have night terrors or issues with bedwetting, then there’s the fatigued teens falling asleep in the classroom. And let’s not forget the not-so-obvious consequences of bad sleep: toddlers having temper tantrums, otherwise well-disciplined kids that are inattentive or belligerent at school or home, increased visits to hospital emergency rooms, teenagers who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to suffer from depression and engage in negative high-risk behaviour. If you think that’s all tosh, you’re wrong. There have been multiple research studies that have specifically ex-

testing. The study’s author determined that just one hour of lost sleep was “equivalent to (the loss of) two years of cognitive maturation and development.” In other words, summarized Bronson, “a slightly sleepy sixth-grader will perform in class like a mere fourth-grader.” Another study cited in the chapter makes a connection between sleep and regulation of insulin, concluding that kids who don’t sleep are prone to weight problems and diabetes.

Scrap the Fair Elections Act

T

he most serious flaw among the many, many flaws in the Fair Elections Act is its author, MP Pierre Poilievre. The entire exercise should be scrapped because he is unfit to draw up such a bill, let alone maintain his position as democratic reform minister. Poilievre’s unprecedented attack on Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand’s integrity, impartiality, and motives – saying the referee shouldn’t be wearing a team jersey – was compounded when he claimed Mayrand is trying to pad his power and budget. “He wants more power, a bigger budget and less accountability,� Poilievre told the Senate legal and constitutional affairs committee on April 8. It’s a baseless claim, of course. It even runs contrary to Mayrand’s past actions (always a good indicator of future actions). Instead, Poilievre’s bill reveals his party wants a bigger war chest, less accountability and more power to win elections by preventing non-Conservatives voters from casting their ballot. It encourages bigger contributions to larger parties by making campaign financing loopholes, creating less accountability from a weakened Elections Canada that uncovered the in-and-out scandal and other dirty tricks.

Mayrand aside, Poilievre also levelled baseless attacks against provincial chief electoral officers, scholars, public intellectuals, columnists, experts from various countries around the world, and protesters armed with petitions delivered to 25 MPs’ offices in Canada, including his own. Perhaps conservative Preston Manning, who recently criticized the bill, is next. The point is that elections experts are attacked en masse and without cause by Poilievre. He’s not politely pointing out a dfference of opinion he has with critics – he’s questioning their motives. Since he is presumably an expert on elections, as he is the democratic reform minister and spent some time thinking about the bill before drafting it, that is reason enough to disqualify him from penning it. Elections experts, according to his reasoning, ought to leave the Fair Elections Act up to someone with less specialized knowledge and, say, more common sense. Poilievre has proven that he is not intellectually capable of addressing arguments against the bill. Personal attacks are the surest sign of a flawed intelligence. It’s time to scrap the Fair Elections Act.

‘Social engineering’ or not, we’re better off

A

ttempts by government to change the way people behave are often criticized as “social engineering� and often the criticism is justified. But sometimes the attempts actually help. This is what we draw from an event last week where the city and Ottawa Public Health dropped some statistics on smoking. It’s way down in Ottawa. After stalling for a few years, the smoking rate has dropped to 11 per cent. It was 15 per cent three years ago. According to Ottawa Public Health, ours is the lowest smoking rate in the province. The city can’t claim full credit for this. What has happened here is part of a nation-wide trend that has been going on for decades. In 1999, the smoking rate was 23.2 per cent. In 1985, it was 35 per cent. Some of these figures come from different sources, so comparisons aren’t exact, but you get the idea: in the last 30 years, the percentage of smokers has been halved, or declined by two-thirds, depending on which numbers you use. That’s a significant change of behaviour, one of the most significant ever in our country. If you are old enough to remember when everyone smoked, you know the difference. It is common now to be at parties where everyone

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town in the room used to smoke and none of them do now. A lot of that has to do with peer, rather than governmental, pressure. Suddenly, it was not socially acceptable to light up. Suddenly, people became more fitness conscious. Suddenly, your children were at you about smoking. Suddenly, people weren’t smoking on television. Suddenly, there were no ashtrays in people’s houses. Things like that would have a big effect on us. But governmental action, both through regulation and education has made a difference too. The kids who nagged at you to quit probably picked that up in school. Good for the schools and good for governments at all levels that kept pumping the health statistics out at us.

Ottawa West News EMC - Thursday, April 17, 2014

Of greater significance, though, were the changes made in where smoking was allowable. It got to be really inconvenient to smoke, which was an incentive to quit. It also got to be really expensive, thanks to higher and higher taxes. A pack of cigarettes costs something like $8 now. That’s a deterrent, particularly to young people. But the inconvenience might be even more important. In the days when cigarettes were cheaper, they were also much more visible. You would see people smoking them in grocery stores, on airplanes, in bars, in shopping centres, in theatres, in restaurants, at work. Then the rules began changing. Cigarettes disappeared from the workplace, the stores, airplanes and trains. Then, with considerably more controversy, smoking was banned in bars and restaurants. This may have hurt bar and restaurant owners, but it made a big difference both to non-smokers and to smokers who were thinking of quitting (which, I can say as a reformed smoker, is all of them). The jury may be out on the economic impact of banning smoking in restaurants and bars. But it can be argued that those who want to smoke can step onto the sidewalk. Meanwhile, bars and restaurants have gained new customers who had previously stayed away because they didn’t like to be in a smoky environment.

In short, people who were inclined to quit anyway found they had a greater incentive to do so because smoking had become not just an unhealthy and expensive pastime, but a pain in the neck. Here, there was more help at the governmental level in the provision of anti-smoking programs at clinics and hospitals. Last year, more than 4,300 people took part in stop-smoking programs offered by Ottawa Public Health. There is still muttering about social engineering, particularly as smoking bans spread out of doors. But you can’t argue with the fact that we’re better off for it.

Infill review to wrap up this spring Continued from page 1

Of the nine community design plans set to be completed in 2014, CDPs for Scott Street, Gladstone Station, PrestonCarling, uptown Rideau Street and the former Rockcliffe air base are on the list. Last year, the city drafted three new transit-oriented design plans for communities at Hurdman, Blair and Lees stations. Community design plans for Bayview station, Centretown and Phase 2 of the east urban community were also approved, as was an updated secondary plan for Montreal Road. A review of the height and mass allowed for small-scale infill homes inside the Greenbelt is expected to wrap up this spring. The city will also undertake a citywide project looking at building density indexing. The city is also looking at developing an online permit and license system called EPal intended to ease the process of applying for development and other permits.

That’s in addition to a few studies that are already underway and will wrap up in 2014, including: defining heights for mid-rise and high-rise buildings, drafting a policy for secondary dwellings in townhomes, updating floodplain and wetlands mapping and reviewing maximum sizes for office buildings more than 800 metres away from a transit station. City planning staff have been undergoing additional training, Moser said. Fifteen people have now completed an urban design certificate program, while five more planners were certified as LEED Green Associates, bringing the city’s total of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design experts to 17. Ninety staff members in the planning department also received training on how to better communicate with the public and present ideas. Moser said the department will soon be updating the types of consultations it undertakes as new consultation “toolkits” are rolled out. The

Established in 2006, Ontario’s Leading Women/Leading Girls, Building Communities Award celebrates women whose leadership has improved the lives of others in their communities. This year, 92 women from across the province received the award.

toolkits are the result of a city consultation and review of public engagement strategies that was conducted last year. “Last year we did all kinds of things we hadn’t done before. Some of them worked, some of them didn’t,” Moser said. “We’ll continue to have new ways of consulting so – no disrespect – we don’t

continue to get the same five people out to a consultation.” Part of that consultation might look at revising the target timelines the city has set for processing development applications. A deadline of 75 days for the planning department was set around a dozen years ago, but in some development categories the city

only hits that deadline for as little as 19 per cent of applications. Part of the issue is that development applications have become increasingly complex over the past 12 years, said Michael Mizzi, the city’s chief of development review services. The introduction of the Urban Design Review Panel in 2010

has also added another hurdle to the process, he said. In light of that, Mizzi said his staff is considering whether the deadlines are still realistic. “We might need to look at changing the target figure to be more realistic in today’s planning environment,” he said.

Vanier BIA hosts bridal show Local businesses offer chance to win complete wedding package Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Are you recently engaged? Thinking of popping the question? Hoping to have a chance to win your dream Vanier wedding? Well, Quartier Vanier has just the event for you. Bride Ideas - the Ultimate Wedding Showcase will take place at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health on April 26. The bridal show will feature Quartier Vanier businesses exclusively. “I think it’s amazing, the BIA has done a lot of cool things in the past,” said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. “They have always been innovative to make people discover Vanier, but I think what works well with this project, is that people can discover all the businesses in one spot in one hour.” Fleury, who also sits on the BIA’s board of directors, said

he will also be participating in the show. The evening will feature a chance to taste different catering options, view floral arrangements and watch a fashion show -- all from area businesses. Kimberly Wilson, owner of Kimberly Wilson Bridal and Fashion Outlet, will showcase her bridal fashions at the show. “I have been asked in the past to participate in fashion shows, but never thought it was worth it,” Wilson said. “But this is all about showcasing our local businesses. This is about bringing people to the neighbourhood and we felt it was a great idea.” Wilson’s dresses will be modelled by both professional models and brides-to-be who have recently purchased dresses at the Beechwood Avenue shop. “I’ve never done this before, but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said

Glebe bride-to-be Marianne Wouters, who was at Wilson’s shop after a dress fitting for the fashion show. Fellow model and brideto-be Jolène Savoir said she too is excited to step on the runway at the show. Both women said they jumped at the chance to participate. “I have been to a couple other bridal shops in this city and Kim’s shop is by far the best,” Wouters said. “It’s a great, comfortable shop to look for your dress.” The show will also feature musicians, including Aboriginal drumming and a Lebanese dancing group. “We wanted to showcase the best of what Vanier merchants have to offer,” said stage manager Marie-Claude Valiquet. The big draw is that anyone who attends the show has the chance to win an allexpenses-paid wedding. Anyone who attends that is getting married within the

next 18 months will automatically be entered in the contest. The grand prize includes: • Catering from Todrics Fine Dining and Catering • Floral arrangements from Scentimental Flowers • Wedding gown, veil and hair accessory from Kimberly Wilson Bridal and Fashion Outlet • Wedding reception at the Wabano Centre. There will also be door prizes, which include a chance to win furniture from Zuffa Homes, free tuxedo and wedding gown dry cleaning from Monson Cleaners and free teeth whitening package from Healthy Smiles dental clinic, among others. Valiquet said there will also be swag bags for attendees. The bridal fun begins at 7 p.m. and is a first come, first serve event.

Ordinary soldiers’ artworks are on the front line of a new display at the Canadian War Museum Nevil Hunt

nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Arts - The Canadian War Museum is offering a view of the First World War right from the trenches, as interpreted by professional artists and soldiers who raised a paint brush or pen in addition to a rifle.

The 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War is this June, and Canada’s national museums will commemorate four grim years of combat – in Europe and on the home front – through 2019. The first two exhibitions dealing with what was then called the Great War opened on April 10 at the war

museum. The most personal works are those created by soldiers who decided to paint or draw what they saw. They are now part of one of the two concurrent exhibitions, titled Witness – Canadian Art of the First World War. The sketches and drawings made in the trenches or in prisoner-of-war camps – some not much larger than postcards – stand in stark contrast to massive paintings commissioned by the Canadian War Memorials Fund. Some of the works by those in uniform were never intended for display in a museum but were created for family back home or comrades.

None of the art created by ordinary soldiers has ever been publicly displayed before. In all, 54 artworks are presented in four different thematic sections in Witness, including pieces by three artists who would later become part of the Group of Seven: A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer and Frederick Varley. transformation

“The war transformed Canada and you can witness that transformation as it happened,” said war art historian Laura Brandon during an April 9 preview of the exhibition. Brandon introduced the daughter of one soldier-artist during the launch. Marjorie Gould’s father, Ross Wiggs, served in the Canadian artillery with the McGill Battery and

created colour drawings of what he saw during the war. “It’s a real honour for him and for me,” Gould said of his part in the Witness exhibition: a cheerful image of a Canadian soldier, entitled Tommy. Gould also carries with her two small books of drawings her father brought home and it seems a small miracle they survived time near the front lines and then the long trip back to Canada. “There’s a whole series (of drawings of soldiers), from private to general,” Gould said of the neatly bound books. The works of Wiggs and the other artists will be seen by thousands of Canadians as Witness goes on a cross-Canada tour after September. See page 15

Think you know everything La-Z-Boy makes? Think again.

Canadian War Museum/submitted

Soldier-artist John Humphries’ untitled watercolour depicts a soldier on horseback and an ambulance, making their way down a wet road at sunset. In 1919, Humphries was stationed near the town of SaintGérard, Belgium. The house in which he was billeted at the time became ‘a shrine to Canadians’ after he painted pictures directly on the walls. Continued from page 14

The second exhibition at the war museum is entitled Transformations, and runs concurrently with Witness. It includes paintings from two very different perspectives: the Allied and German sides during the First World War. Canadian artist A.Y. Jackson was a professional painter prior to enlisting in the 60th Battalion in 1915. He fought and was injured, and was appointed as an official war artist in 1917. German artist Otto Dix joined up in

1914, serving in the German army at the Battle of the Somme. While Jackson avoided the depiction of battle, Dix didn’t shy away from incorporating corpses in what has been described as Apocalyptic art. In a few cases, the paths of Jackson and Dix crossed, and there are artworks of locations when they were held by the opposing sides during the war. The Dix works on display include a number on loan from the national gallery in Berlin. Witness and Transformations will

be on display at the Canadian War Museum until Sept. 21. They require regular admission to the museum. Many upcoming exhibitions at the war museum and the National Gallery of Canada will share the years of the First World War with Canadians. The gallery will host The Great War: The Persuasive Power of Photography from June 27 to Nov. 16. The war museum will bring in temporary exhibits during the coming five years and will add to its permanent collection with The Home Front, which opens in September. Schedules can be found at warmuseum.ca.

Otto Dix, Zerfallender Kampfgraben (Trench in Ruins), 1924. In this print, German artist Otto Dix depicts a First World War trench in the aftermath of violent shelling. In the dark, crumbling ground, bodies and skeletons merge with the earth. In the distance, Dix uses light, a traditional symbol of hope, to expose an endless field of shell holes.

News - Legal wrangling over a rundown Lowertown heritage school that’s become the poster child for the city’s crackdown on derelict buildings is sending the city and its owner back to court. The city has resumed legal action against Groupe Claude Lauzon, the owner of the Our Lady School on Cumberland Street, for failing to follow through on a legal agreement to protect the building, said built heritage subcommittee chairwoman Jan Harder, the councillor for Barrhaven Ward. There is now a concern that the 110-year-old building has suffered more damage, she said. Harder had harsh words for Lauzon on April 10: “This is not tolerable. The city will not stand by to watch heritage buildings being destroyed by neglect and inaction.” In addition to reviving the court action against Groupe Claude Lauzon, Harder said the mayor has directed the city’s lawyer to take “whatever action is necessary” to ensure the building is stabilized and repaired before next winter. The city’s chief building official is visiting the site to see whether any more orders need to be issued and whether the structure must be re-assessed by a heritage engineer. Staff in Groupe Claude Lauzon’s office said Claude Lauzon, who oversees the company, was

The city is taking Groupe Claude Lauzon back to court because it says the company failed to live up to its legal commitment to fix up a heritage Lowertown school. away for two weeks. No one else at the company was available for comment. It’s the latest gauntlet thrown down in the lengthy legal battle between the company and the city. It began in February of 2013, when Lauzon asked the city for permission to demolish the school based on a report the company commissioned. The city asked Lauzon to meet several conditions, including providing an assessment from a professional heritage engineer on what portions of the structure – if any – could be saved. In response, the owner

launched court applications against the city. After some back-and-forth legal bickering, the two parties agreed on a strategy that would preserve parts of the building and court proceedings were paused. The city had also agreed to waive the annual fee of $47,000 that was supposed to be charged to Groupe Claude Lauzon for encroaching on the road. Bracing and boards blocking off the site extend into the street to ensure safety for passersby. The south and west walls of the former school are supposed to be saved as part of that agreement. John Cooke, an engineer

working on behalf of Lauzon, told the city’s built heritage committee last October that concerns that Lauzon was not committed to the work were unfounded because the company had agreed to pour $700,000 into retaining those facades. Groupe Claude Lauzon owns a number of unused properties, mainly in Lowertown, Vanier and New Edinburgh. Heritage Ottawa president Leslie Maitland commented that she was happy to see the city take action, but wondered why the Lauzon’s business strategy was to let its buildings fall into ruin.

Legacy gift to CHEO generates $4.6 million As CHEO gets ready to celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, it is natural to reflect back to the early days of the hospital. It was a dream that was built on sheer will and determination by a community that was committed to providing the best health care for its children and youth. During the late 1960’s and early 70’s, physicians, elected officials, parents and the community at large joined forces to establish a special and distinct hospital to serve the children and youth of eastern Ontario and western Quebec. This group raised $4 million from the community which was a formidable sum for the times.

When Mr. Cochrane died in 1985 the CHEO Foundation received $540,000 from his estate. The Foundation established the Weldon Cochrane Endowment Fund with his gift as directed in his Will. Much has happened and changed at CHEO in the nearly 30 years since Mr. Cochrane’s death, and in that time his legacy gift has generated $4.6 million in interest which has benefited generations of patients and families at CHEO. In 25 years from now based on a conservative interest rate of 6% The Cochrane Endowment Fund will be valued at $19,742,605; in 50 years it will be $84,732,710 and in 100 years it will have reached $1,560,789,584.

THE IMPACT OF MR. COCHRANE’S GENEROUS GIFT IS PROBABLY BEYOND WHAT HE COULD HAVE EVEN IMAGINED WHEN HE MADE IT OVER 30 YEARS AGO. HIS LEGACY LIVES ON AND CONTINUES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF YOUNG PATIENTS AT CHEO TODAY, AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. In 1980, when the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) was only just 11 years old, Weldon Cochrane, an Ottawa chartered accountant and partner with the accounting firm of Coopers and Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers) was also the Treasurer on the CHEO Foundation Board. Mr. Cochrane had an appreciation for the importance of leaving a legacy and understood how to make an impact. With that in mind, he made a gift in his Will to CHEO leaving the residual of his estate with instructions for it to be endowed; meaning that the capital would be preserved in perpetuity and the annual interest would be used to fund the important work at CHEO. He was predeceased by his wife, Adrienne Cochrane and his only child, Delma Grace Cochrane.

With these funds CHEO will be able to continue to purchase state of the art equipment, fund lifesaving research while continuing to provide the best in pediatric care for the children and youth of our community. His legacy lives on at CHEO every day through the children and families that benefit from his generous and forward thinking.

As CHEO marks this major milestone, we look back and honor those in our community who made our local children’s hospital a reality and donors like Mr. Cochrane who made children a priority in their lives. Donors like him have helped to ensure that CHEO will be here forever. Why not honour what is most important to you during your lifetime by considering a gift in Will to CHEO. Our children, youth and families deserve to always have excellent health care, to benefit from lifesaving research and be provided with the support programs to live happy and healthy lives now and forever.

WHAT IS FOREVER CHEO?

Forever CHEO is a way to ensure that CHEO will always be here to provide excellent care, lifesaving research and invaluable support to children and their families every day by making a gift from your estate. When you leave a gift in your Will to CHEO you have the option of designating it to address immediate needs within the Hospital, the Research Institute or the Forever CHEO Endowment Fund. This fund will preserve the full amount of your gift and disperse the interest to CHEO annually. Since the fund will live on in perpetuity, so will your gift to future generations of children at CHEO. This is a way to leave a permanent and meaningful mark on your community.

“There was a 15-minute period where 240 people were lined up to get on Gatineaubound buses,” said Parrott. “Once you start the detour, instead of being on the Transitway, all of these people will be at Albert and Preston Street, crossing six lanes of traffic to get to the north side of Albert

layed.” New traffic signals placed along the bus diversion route between Tunney’s Pasture and Empress Avenue would surely lead to increased delays on top of the increased bus traffic, said Parrot, adding that the group is asking the city to do a trial run in advance of the closure. The city has estimated the detour layout would lead to delays of two to three minutes. The results of the group’s passenger count will be sent to OC Transpo general manager John Manconi. During the same study, noise volume levels were tested near stops on Albert, in close proximity to nearby homes. While the distance between the recording device and the buses wasn’t stated, the group said readings of 97-99 decibels were recorded from the acceleration of buses, and from squealing brakes. The group, backed up by association president Matt Whitehead, advocate for the use of Lincoln Fields station as a transfer point for buses carrying passengers bound for Tunney’s Pasture or Lebreton Station, as these buses could be rerouted off of Scott-Albert

Developers could be tapped to build city parks Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is looking at getting out of the business of building new suburban parks and instead letting developers do the work. That’s a proposal being looked at as part of an internal review of the city’s development charges bylaw. Developers already pay for the parks to be built – it’s part of the charge for development, which covers the construction of new infrastructure and facilities needed to support the larger population when a new development goes in. Now the city is questioning whether it makes more sense to let builders take the lead in planning and constructing parks in a schedule that better suits their plans for building new communities, mainly in the suburbs. “Should the city continue to collect development charges for parks, or should the developers just build the parks themselves?� said John Moser, the city’s general manager of planning and growth management. “There has been a lot of interest from the development community to do that.� Pierre Dufresne, president of the

Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association and vice president with Tartan Homes, agreed. He said the change would mean parks could be built sooner. “When a home purchaser moves into a subdivision even in its earlier stages, the park will already be complete,� he said. “It creates a complete community to have it upfront.� Shifting that responsibility to developers is something Moser and his staff are considering proposing to the city’s planning committee and council next month. While it’s just one part of a larger review of how the city collects fees to cover the cost of expanding services to accommodate development, it would be the most significant shift, Moser said. “If that comes to fruition, it would be a big change in the bylaw,� he said. Since the planning and construction of new parks in the urban core works differently than a masterplanned new suburb, planning staff are considering keeping a fee for parks in the development charge for downtown construction. The city has to wait until it collects enough money from development charges as different phases of homes in a new suburban commu-

nity are built, so the park often isn’t put in until residents have been living there for some time. Letting the developers do it would give them the flexibility to put in a park before residents move in, which is something builders prefer to do because it’s a good selling feature, Moser said. Many builders ask the city for “front-ending agreements� to hand over more of the money the developer will eventually owe to the city upfront so the park can be built sooner. “I think there is almost an expectation now as more (developers) do that, that the parks will be ready,� Moser said. But that will also mean the city wouldn’t know which new parks were going to be built each year. Right now, there is a list of upcoming park projects, but that responsibility could be shifted over to the development industry if the changes are recommended and approved. Dufresne said there has also been discussion about putting a deadline in the developers’ community planning documents approved by the city to ensure the parks are completed in a timely manner – similar to what’s done now for sidewalks and utilities. The shift wouldn’t necessarily mean layoffs or a reduced need

RELIABILITY.

for city parks planners, Moser said. Those staffers would still be needed, but their work would be done at the beginning of the process when developers work with the city to put together a master plan for their communities. “We would be involved as it evolves through the design, working with the industry,� Moser said. “Whatever is built has to be built to city standards. “We would see the same quality of parks. They’ll just be built on a more timely basis,� Moser said. “I think

the only thing that will change is: ‘Gee, it’s done.’ It’s quicker.� Dufresne said the developers might be able to find more efficient ways to build parks. “There might be some more flexibility with the things we’d put into the park,� he said. “We don’t have the same rules of engagement as the city.� A background study on the revisions to the development charges bylaw will be posted on ottawa.ca a few weeks before it will be considered at a May planning committee meeting.

Local food to feature in Glebe Market event to feature Ottawa-made products, area vendors Michelle Nash

News - Local food and Ottawa-made products will be popping up at a Glebe indoor market later this month. The McKeen family of McKeen Metro Grocer will host the pop-up market at the Glebe Community Centre on April 27. According to store director Rebecca McKeen, the market aims to showcase all the local products sold in Glebe shops, including the grocery store. “We’re hoping to create a real atmosphere,� McKeen said. “Basically it’s the Taste of the Glebe meets the farmers markets. Taste, buy, sample and enjoy.� The event feature products from a wide range of sources, including local bakeries, food suppliers and Glebe businesses. McKeen has been organizing this event for the past six weeks and said she expects at least 40 vendors to attend the event. “Pretty much 97 per cent

There is no cost for vendors to set up and sell their wares. The goal is to make this an annual or possibly a seasonal event for the community, and McKeen said it’s not just an event for people from the Glebe, but for residents from across the city. The grocery store has partnered with the Glebe Neigh-

bourhood Activities Group to make the event not only about shopping, but also about socializing, McKeen said. “We want it to be an event where families can come and hang out.

News - New gates will be added at four suburban rail crossings but no other changes are needed to OC Transpo’s policies for traversing train tracks, according to a report. OC Transpo bus operators are not required to stop at rail crossings unless the signals are flashing to indicate a train is approaching, and engineers from consultant MMM Group have told the city it’s safest to keep that policy. The review was ordered by OC Transpo after a collision between an OC Transpo bus and a Via train on the morning of Sept. 18, 2013, that killed six people, including the bus driver. Based on 30-year-old research from the United States and a review of literature and policies of other municipalities, the report from MMM Group tells the city it could actually expect a 17.4 per cent increase in collisions where trains hit OC Transpo buses if the city required buses to stop at all rail crossings. “Intuitively, many people think that requiring buses to stop at inactive crossings equipped with active protection would offer some safety advantage,” said Geoffrey Millen of MMM Group. “The reality, however, is that there does not appear to be any quantitative evidence indicating that stopping transit buses at these crossings improves road safety performance. Quite to the contrary – the literature indicates that stopping these buses at appropriately equipped crossings will likely result in more collisions overall.” Requiring buses to stop at rail crossings could also increase vehicle-vehicle collisions, Millen said, especially rear-end crashes. Vehiclevehicle collisions are already five times more likely near rail crossings, Millen said. Millen’s review found that municipalities across Canada are split on whether to always require buses to stop at protected crossings. Among major cities, Toronto and Montreal require buses to stop. It’s also part of Quebec’s provincial traffic laws. The report was set to be considered at the April 16 transit commission meeting and includes a recommendation that OC Transpo buses only use fully signalled rail crossings.

Issues at Barrhaven crossing going on since 2012 upgrade, Harder says Continued from page 25

As a result, OC Transpo will spend between $200,000 and $400,000 to add gates to four crossings that currently have only lights, but no gates: Herzberg and March roads in Kanata, and Lester and McCarthy roads in the city’s south end. In Carp, the city is looking at potentially re-routing the once-weekly shopping bus, Route 203, to avoid the two unsignalized rail crossings on Carp and Donald B. Munro roads. Currently, OC Transpo policy requires drivers to stop at those crossings and open the bus door to listen for oncoming trains. Millen’s main recommendation rests on research undertaken by the

U.S. Federal Highway Administration in 1985. Millen said the 30-year-old document is the only real research on the topic related to public-transit buses and the study would be hard to replicate in Canada because there may not be enough data, not to mention the study would be huge and require a great deal of resources. Although making buses stop would increase the risk of trains colliding with buses, it would reduce collisions in which buses hit trains by 3.3 per cent. Stopping buses would also address risks associated with total rail crossing signal failures. The incidence of total signal failures in Ottawa wasn’t studied, Millen said. Deputy city manager

Steve Kanellakos said he’s not aware of any total signal failures in Ottawa, at least since the Sept. 18 collision. Via Rail did not respond to a request for information about signal failures or how they are tracked. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said that’s because Via doesn’t keep track of signal glitches – the Crown corporation relies on the public to call them to report signal malfunctions. “(The city) can adjust every light in the city from (the traffic control centre),” Harder said. “And yet these guys can’t tell when one of their pieces of equipment fails? ... They have to wait for us to tell them. They don’t have any idea.” Although there have been about a dozen highly-publicized signal glitch-

es at Ottawa rail crossings, Harder said the issues happen almost daily and have been going on since Via upgraded signals in 2012. “The public are just so used to it. We can’t go anywhere without crossing a track,” Harder said. “People are making more noise about it because they probably don’t feel as safe as they used to because we had a horrific tragedy in our community.” In May 2012, the federal government approved $16 million in signal upgrades for the rail crossings in Barrhaven as part of a plan to increase train speeds and ensure safety at those crossings, according to a letter from local MP Pierre Polievre. “Since that time, we’ve had a rash of problems,” Harder said. “Don’t

think that for a minute when ... anybody says that a crossing is down in Barrhaven again that that’s it. It’s a growing list.” OC Transpo buses regularly traverse 20 of the 75 rail crossings in the city. At one time the city did have a policy to stop OC Transpo buses at all rail crossings. That procedure came into effect in 1988 following a lobbying effort by the school board, which argued it was an issue of safety due to perception of consistency with school bus procedures, said Pat Scrimgeour, OC Transpo’s manager of transit service planning. That policy was rescinded in 1992 after discussions with Transport Canada related to re-timing of the signal activity to make the signals more consistent.

The Rideau River flooded parts of Old Ottawa South, including submerging the corner of Rideau River Drive and Belmont Avenue.

Wicked winter, wild spring prompt flood warnings for Ottawa Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Rising water levels in streams and rivers in the Ottawa area kept the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority on its toes and waterfront residents nervous during the past week. Watches and warnings were

posted following last week’s heavy rainfall and warm temperatures, with flooding reported in low-lying areas along the Rideau River, including Old Ottawa South and Vanier. The Rideau River flooded portions of Riverain Park, Brewer Park and Windsor Park starting on April 8. Much further south, flooding was reported near

Kemptville, as the Manotick and Long Island dams were opened to capacity, in order to pass as much water as possible. The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority issued a flood warning on April 10, covering the period of the following 48 hours. The lingering effects of a long, cold winter created the

conditions for flooding once spring-like conditions arrived, stated the authority. “The presence of an unusually thick and strong ice sheet on area rivers and streams has been a significant factor affecting water levels in many locations during this spring freshet,” an April 10 release stated. As well, deep frost left over

from winter increased the amount of runoff into streams and rivers due to lower levels of absorption. The RVCA asks people living near waterways to take precautions to minimize any damage caused by flooding, and to be cautious when venturing near flooded areas. The Ottawa River, which draws most of its

water from colder areas further north, experiences flooding later than the more southerly Rideau, though water levels have been rising steadily since April 7. A potential rainfall forecast for the early part of this week is expected to raise water levels further. With files from Michelle Nash

Ottawa students make socks, money Adam Kveton

adam.kveton@metroland.com

Community - The theories that attempt to explain how a pair of socks can enter a washer or dryer and come out minus one are numerous and wild. While some propose a wormhole or and alternate dimension is the reason for their lost sock, others claim their washer or dryer is indeed sentient and feeding on their clothes. But no matter how complicated the theories get, the solution is simple says a group of entrepreneurs from Earl of March Secondary School: socks with snaps. That’s the idea that has netted this student start up over $1,000 in sales mid-February. The company, named Enssemble, is currently leading in a competition with three other Ottawa school-based companies – one at Glebe Collegiate (Band.It), another at John McCrae (#Qualitee) and the third at De La Salle (Creaculte). While Band.It’s headbands, #Qualitee’s custom hashtag T-shirts and Creacutle’s plant pots are having success of their own, it’s the socks that are taking a step ahead of the

others. Diyang Lu, who spearheaded the entrepreneurship club at Earl of March, explained how he and a group of 24 students came up with socks with snaps. After brainstorming a laundry list of product ideas, the company narrowed it down to three possibilities: light switch covers, customizable iPhone cases and the socks. It was a combination of cost efficiency and aiming at a lucrative target market that narrowed the list down, said Diyang. “For the iPhone case, it was a very narrow target market and there wasn’t very much room for expansion and there was a lot of competitors already,” he said. Also, they weren’t able to keep the iPhone’s sleek, stylish design with their homemade case. As for the light switches, there are just too many different styles of switch to try and accommodate. “Whereas the sock idea, we could have different sizes, women’s, men’s, and the thing is a snap is a simple idea. It is easy to use, easy to make and people can see the point to it,’

Adam Kveton/Metroland

Earl of March students work on their product – socks with snaps – at the school on April 2 as part of a competition against three other secondary school-based companies. said Diyang. After testing their design in both washers and dryers to make sure a small metal snap on a pair of socks was enough to foil a hungry washer or the alternate dimension contained therein, the group went into production. “Our first sale came midFebruary,” said Diyang, at a parent auction night at Earl of March. Though the company projected to only sell 10 pairs

on their first try, twice as many ended up being sold, and the company received some valuable feedback. Now the company has

sold their product at Carlingwood Mall, Costco and Place D’Orléans. Along the way, they have refined their product pitch, catching people’s atten-

tion by pointing out they are a student run business learning entrepreneurship, and emphasizing the snaps. The sales day at Costco has been the most lucrative for the company, said Diyang. “We sold out half way through the allocated time given to us,” he said, pushing the company past the $1,000 worth of product sold mark. Now, the company hopes to return to Costco and pump up sales even more. Though each student involved in the company is a shareholder, the endeavour isn’t about making money. “Our goal is to become the best junior achievement company in Ottawa,” said Diyang, and also learn about business. “It’s not all about making money, it’s to make sure that everybody involved understands the process of it; sales, marketing, production, every aspect,” he said. “If you ask any of them, they’ve been part of the design of the product and how we market it to customers.”

…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

SPLURGE

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.

Preparation

Rhubarb filling: In a medium saucepan, bring the rhubarb and granulated sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until it has thickened and the rhubarb breaks down, stirring occasionally. Let it cool. (Make ahead: store in an airtight container for up to one day or freeze for up to two weeks.) Cakes: Grease and flour a 12-cup, non-stick muffin pan and set it aside. Open the tea bags and pour the leaves into small bowl. Pour boiling water over the leaves and let stand for five minutes. Strain the leaves, reserving half. Add the milk to the tea and set aside. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in the vanilla and the reserved tea leaves. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir this into the butter mixture alternately with the tea mixture, making three additions of dry ingredients and two of wet.

Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin cups. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for about 20 minutes or until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in a pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Run knife around edges and remove the cakes from the pan. Place the cakes upside down on rack and let cool. (Make ahead: store cakes in an airtight container for up to one day or freeze for up to two weeks.) Rhubarb glaze: In a food processor or blender, puree 50 ml (1/4 cup) of the cooled, cooked rhubarb until it’s smooth. Add the icing sugar and cream cheese and puree until smooth, adding milk, 5 ml (1 tsp) at a time, until it’s pourable. Trim the tops of the cakes to sit flat. Cut each cake in half. Spread the cut side of the bottom with 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the rhubarb filling. Place remaining half, cut side down, on top. Place cakes upside down on plates. Pour glaze over top of each cake, letting excess drip down sides. Let stand for 30 minutes for glaze to set. Foodland Ontario

Ronny has solution for panic over loose tooth

W

hy my cousins from Montreal were with us that time of year was beyond me. Ronny and Terry had come with Aunt Helen, who promptly went home on the train as soon as their clothes were unpacked. So it looked like they were going to be with us out on the farm for a while, long enough that Ronny would go off to the Northcote School, while Terry, the youngest, would stay home with Mother. Even though Ronny was a force to contend with, I loved it when the Lapointe cousins visited us on the farm. There was never a dull moment. That early Spring morning, a Saturday it was, I woke with a front tooth in the bottom of my mouth hanging by a thread. I could feel it with my tongue, and I fled my bed like I was on my way to the gallows. Mother was already in the kitchen stirring porridge. I pointed to the tooth, vowed I was on my death bed, and by that time had

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories woken the entire household who still had not gotten up. Mother looked in my mouth and lifted her hand as if she was about to perform surgery, and I clamped my mouth shut tight, still screaming at the top of my lungs. Ronny came downstairs into the kitchen, immediately knew what all the fuss was about, and announced that he was completely capable of getting rid of the tooth, and I wouldn’t feel a thing. “I get rid of Terry’s all the time,” he said. Terry, still groggy, and too young to know what was going on, curled up on the creton couch by the Findlay Oval and promptly fell back to sleep. Ronny went to the cupboard, got out the ball of string, and ripped off a good

portion and said he would make a loop over the tooth, I would sit on a chair, and he would walk slowly to the back door, hanging on to the other end of the string, and the tooth would be gone. “You won’t feel a thing,” he said. Well, the last time Ronny experimented with me and one of his high fallootin’ ideas, I flew off the shed roof holding an open umbrella and had a splint on my leg for two weeks. Mother was working away at making breakfast for Father and the brothers, who would soon be coming in from the morning chores, and she was paying absolutely no attention to Ronny or me and the seriousness of what was going on around her. I was still crying, with my mouth clamped tight as if

my lips had been glued with mucilage. I could wobble the tooth with my tongue, and as far as I was concerned, I was ready to be taken in to old Dr. Murphy. Forget going to the dentist. I remembered the one and only time any of us ever went to a real dentist, it cost $3, and my sister Audrey who was the victim, said he nearly killed her. I knew being driven almost 20 kilometres into Renfrew to have a wobbly tooth removed by Dr. Murphy was out of the question, and I finally agreed to let Ronny look in my mouth. “You won’t feel a thing,” Ronny said, as he neared my chair with the ball of string. “For goodness sake, Mary, the tooth is just hanging there. Let Ronny do what he has to do so I can get the breakfast on the table. This commotion over a baby tooth is ridiculous,” Mother said as she banged the porridge pot on the Findlay Oval, stirring with a wooden spoon. Making the most of the situation, and adding as much drama as he could

muster, Ronny said he would go as far away as the parlour door to pull the string. “That way you won’t know when I am going to do it.” As he neared my mouth, I told him I would put the string around the tooth, and he reluctantly handed me the ball made up of pieces we had retrieved from parcels bought at Briscoes General Store. All the time I was pressing my tongue against the offending tooth, and I could tell it had loosened considerably. And then just as Ronny headed for the parlour, unrolling the string as he went, I felt the tooth lying in the bottom of my mouth. No longer was it a loose tooth – it was now a tooth that had come out on its own, with the help of my tongue. I didn’t have the heart to tell Ronny it was all over. I had a good hold of the end of the string, and told Ronny I was ready. Ronny jerked the string like he was pulling turnips, and I let it fall to the floor and had the presence of mind to drop the tooth at my feet.

Ronny skated around the corner of the kitchen, saw the string and the tooth laying on the floor, and puffed up his chest like had just discovered America. “Told you it wouldn’t hurt. You probably have other teeth that are ready to come out too. Let me have a look.” Well, there was no way I was going to let Ronny pull a perfectly good tooth out of my mouth. No sireee. Mother saved the day by telling us if we didn’t get to the table at once for breakfast, she was clearing the kitchen, and we would all have to wait for dinner at noon for our next mouthful of food. Ronny took the tooth between his thumb and finger, looked it over, and said “I don’t want to be a general any more. I think I will be a dentist!” Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Ottawa West News EMC - Thursday, April 17, 2014

Members of both Vanier and Overbrook’s cycling groups joined forces and braved the cold spring weather to ride to the Maple Sugar Festival at Richelieu Park on April 5. The bicycle ride, organized by Velo Vanier, saw residents ride to the Overbrook Community Centre and back to the park to enjoy pancakes.

IN THE MATTER OF THE ONTARIO HERITAGE ACT Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on March 26, 2014 established its intention to designate 478 Albert Street under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value. Description of Property The building at 478 Albert Street is a three storey residence with a high basement that is located on the south side of Albert Street, to the west of the intersection of Bronson Avenue and Albert Street. Statement of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest The house at 478 Albert Street is significant for its design value as an excellent example of the Second Empire style, historical value for its association with Thomas Seaton Scott and contextual value as part of a cluster of historic nineteenth century buildings on Albert Street. The building at 478 Albert Street was constructed circa 1874, in the Second Empire style, which was popular in Canada between 1860 and 1900. The architectural features of the building which are characteristic of the ornate Second Empire style include its mansard roof, ornate entrance, prominent second storey elliptical porch, distinct triangular bay windows and intricate dichromatic brick work. The building at 478 Albert Street was designed for and likely by, Thomas Seaton Scott, the first Chief Architect of the Department of Public Works. Scott was a well known Canadian architect whose work in Ottawa included the 1874 design for the west block of Parliament and the Drill Hall at Cartier Square. Later residents of the building included noted Canadian author William Dawson LeSueur, the Victorian Order of Nurses and the Sisters of Service. The building is associated with the former Ashburnham Hill neighbourhood in the west end of Uppertown. Ashburnham Hill was an early residential neighbourhood which was settled by members of Ottawa’s English-speaking elite from the mid- to late-nineteenth century. This building is one of four remaining nineteenth century buildings located on the south side of Albert Street that has preserved its original low–scale residential character. The cluster of historic buildings on Albert Street stands out amongst the surrounding high-rise apartments and offices. The house at 478 Albert Street is significant for its contribution to the historic residential character. OBJECTIONS Any person wishing to object to this designation may do so by letter, outlining the reasons for the objection and any other relevant information. This letter must be received by the Clerk of the City of Ottawa either by registered mail or personally delivered within 30 days of the publication of this notice. When a notice of objection has been received, the Council of the City of Ottawa will refer the matter to the Conservation Review Board for a hearing and a report.

Arts - Nepean artist Peter Schwartzman is an architect but has lived through art since a very young age. Originally from Belarus, Schwartzman came to Canada from the former Soviet Union in 1979 with degrees in architecture and fine art. Settling in Montreal, he worked at an animation studio for three years until he learned English. Later, he moved to Ottawa for family reasons where he has since lived. Now 66, Schwartzman has travelled many corners of the globe and tells the stories of what he sees through his paintings. He uses mainly oils and watercolour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oil can be more detailed and multi-layered in the physical and meta-physical sense,â&#x20AC;? said Schwartzman. He said more of his work can be seen in the architecture within various buildings and projects he has been involved in throughout Ottawa. The best example of his art can likely be seen in the form of six large interpretive panels in the Canadian War Museum.

Art. He first began teaching the children of his friends but has since expanded. He would like to further expand his school to senior citizens. In his opinion, Ottawa is not an easy place for an artist as there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as many galleries as in places like New York, Boston or even Seattle. Schwartzman has therefore taken his art to exhibitions in those cities as well as Chile,

News - A farmers’ market is coming to Beechwood Avenue this summer. Vanier resident and co-ordinator of the Claridge Homes Beechwood Famers’ Market, Chris Penton, announced the plans to bring a farmers market back to the Vanier-New Edinburgh area this summer. Penton said the cancellation of Quartier Vanier’s farmers market last year opened the door for him to pursue other options for the community, and began looking at properties along Beechwood as a prime location to reach residents from both sides of the street. “I wanted to bring it back,” Penton said. “I think this will be a great opportunity for the area.” When the Vanier farmers market was cancelled last year, market stands popped up out front of businesses along Montreal Road and Beechwood in an attempt to fill the void. Vendors said at the time said having space to sell their food in neighbourhoods like Vanier and News Edinburgh is very important to them.

File

A new farmers market will open on Beechwood Avenue this summer. The market co-ordinator said the event aims to bring together local farmers, artisans and activities for the whole family. The season is set to open on July 5. So far vendors who have signed on are Foster Family Farm, Hall’s Apples, Knock Out Cattle Company, Top Shelf

Preserves, Merry Dairy, Meow That’s Hot. Food trucks will be on-site serving breakfast and lunch options.

The location will be a Claridge-owned property at 99 Beechwood Ave., which Penton said the developer wants to animate as it has no plans to build there for at least the next two years. Penton is not new to running markets, having managed the Little Italy market in the past. The season will open on July 5 and run until mid October. Plans are still in the works, but goal for the market aims to be more than just about selling food: there will be live music and family-fun activities, including a bouncy castle for children, Penton said. There will also be special programming, including the grand opening on July 5, the Great Beechwood Cook Off on Aug. 9, Rootapalooza on Sept. 13 (a celebration of root vegetables) and a thanksgiving event to close the season. “We want to draw people to the market,” he said. The market is currently looking for vendors and artisans. “We want there to be an opportunity for local artisans to come out too,” Penton said. More information is available by contacting Penton at beechwoodfm@gmail.com.

Earth Day art show set for Vanier Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - This Earth Day the students of Amy Howe’s Grade 6 class would like to invite area residents to a different kind of art show. The Assumption Catholic School students will host the Assumption Earth Day Art Gala on April 22 in an effort to raise money for an end-of-the-year class trip and to promote the idea that art can be made with anything – including recycled materials. The Earth Day show’s theme is environment-savvy art pieces. Every piece produced by the students will be created from reused materials, and everyone will contribute something to the show. Howe said going from the idea of hosting a show to making the kind of art the kids wanted wasn’t easy, but in the end, she added was definitely worth it. “This was a huge undertaking, but I think we are more than ready for the show,” she said.

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Assumption Catholic School’s Grade 6 class would like all of Vanier’s art-loving residents to attend its Earth Day Art Gala on April 22 at the school. The class is participating in the entrepreneurial achievement program business adventure, which encourages students to create a business and raise money for local charities. Administered by the Learning Partnership, it connects public school

classes with local businesses to teach the students how to run a successful business. Steve Kinnari, from TD Canada Trust, has mentored the students throughout the project. The class reached out to local Vanier artists for guidance throughout the project and during the show

there will be an opportunity for attendees to create their own art with the help of those artists. The class has also involved its schoolmates in the project. Grade 2 students will be creating a piece of art based on egg cartons and grades 3 to 6 students will focus on using plastic bags as their main material to create. The money raised will help send the Grade 6 class on its graduation trip to St. Brigid’s Camp in Quebec. Doors will open at 5 p.m. with a variety of activities for patrons: • Browsing through the different pieces of art made by the students, starting at $3 apiece. • Meeting local artists and viewing their art, with the option of purchase, as they will have their creations on display. • Viewing an environmental video presentation created by the Grade 6 class. • Participating in a supercreative silent cake auction or enjoy refreshments and cookies for purchase.

Rideau Trail association hosting intro to hiking course Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The Rideau Trail Association is calling on the city’s hikers to help demystify the activity and get people out on the trails. “With an experienced leader, you’re not going to lose your way,” said club president Sheila Parry. The association is hosting a oneday workshop at the Walter Baker Sports Centre on May 3. It’s aimed at helping new hikers make their experience safe and enjoyable. Top-

ics will include planning, preparation, packing, outfitting and on-trail procedures. The day will end with a guided hike. “If you’re a novice hiker, this course will give you the know-how for choosing equipment, avoiding problems, and dealing with situations that may arise on the trail,” Ruth Oswald, one of the instructors, said. There are three clubs that maintain the 387-kilometre Rideau Trail that runs from Kingston to Parliament Hill.

On the way to the capital, it passes through Merrickville and Smiths Falls. Ethel Archard, who handles the Ottawa club’s communications, said the three clubs boast 800 members – with about half coming from the Ottawa area. She said maintenance to the trail can include clearing away trash, or brush and making sure all the routes are as safe as possible. In some cases it will include the installation of boardwalks to make trails easier.

“Things like that would often be done in partnership with conservation authorities or the NCC (National Capital Commission),” Archard said. The association hosts group hikes and other events throughout the year. Annual membership is $25 for an individual and $40 for a household. Archard said there are a variety of different trails depends on the hiker’s experience. “The terrains vary quite a bit along the trail,” she said, adding

Ottawans could either go for a leisurely walk through the woods or a tramp through challenging terrain. Parry said on-trail company is pleasant and there’s help if you need. “You experience environments you might never find on your own,” she said. The May 3 introductory course is $75, but includes a one-year membership to the Rideau Trail Association. For more information about the group, visit rideautrail.org.

Sports - What a flip. Last year, Tumblers Gymnastics sent a lone gymnast to the Eastern Canadian Championship. This year: they qualified 12. Several years after shifting focus to provide programs for competitive gymnasts, the Orléans program has more gymnasts excelling at a higher level. Tumblers president Mark Faig said it was a historic year for the club, sending 24 gymnasts to the provincial championship, held April 3 to 6 in Windsor, Ont. “Our competitive coaching program has advanced tremendously in recent years, and now we’re seeing the results of that,” said general manager Lindsay Bennett. The gym held an athlete homecoming on April 8 to welcome back the provincial competitors. Recreational classes took a pause to welcome all the competitors into the gym and hear about the club’s impressive medal haul. Six gymnasts were named to the provincial team, and many won additional individual event medals. Two gymnasts, Julie-Anne

Aries, your self-confidence and enthusiasm have made you a natural leader. This week belongs to you, and others will rely on your leadership skills. A unique experience has inspired you to make a difference, Taurus. If you want to volunteer, there are many organizations that need help. Find the right fit for you. Change is right around the corner, Gemini. Take the time to listen to what the stars are trying to tell you so you can make the best decisions. You are very good at bringing together people, Cancer. Use this ability to create a social forum this week. Encourage those closest to you to exchange ideas. Don’t let others make decisions for you, Leo. This week take control of your life and be more assertive regarding the goals you want to accomplish. Virgo, technology is foremost on your mind this week. Focus on ways that technology can better your life and advance your career. Seek the advice of others.

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!

Libra, seek guidance from friends and family when faced with a puzzling problem. Different perspectives can shed light on the problem and make it easier to solve. Scorpio, give ample thought to what you really want out of a particular relationship or situation. You might have to make big changes, but such changes are worth the effort. Try to show others this week that you are a thoughtful person who has a lot of life experience, Sagittarius. Assert yourself calmly and effectively to get your point across. Trust the people you love, Capricorn. They may grow weary of not knowing which way you lean. Be firm when making decisions and others will respect you for it. It is not always easy to think and act differently from those around you, Aquarius. But your willingness to take the road less traveled is why you’re such an effective leader. Pisces, someone close to you is having problems that he or she cannot express. Your intuition will save the day.
