Community - Debt left over from her failed leadership bid hasn’t stopped Deborah Coyne from entering a nomination race for the federal Liberals in Ottawa West-Nepean. Coyne filed her nomination papers and required signatures list on April 11 and told Metroland Media she “expects to be greenlit soon.” If that occurs, Coyne will face a returning Anita Vandenbeld, who was on the ballot in the 2011 general election and garnered 31.5 per cent of the vote, placing her party in second. Coyne has recently moved to Ottawa from Toronto to pursue her nomination bid. The federal Liberal leadership campaign leading up to the early 2013 vote left Coyne with $61,000 in campaign debt, a figure that could thwart anyone’s attempt at a nomination run. Coyne told Metroland in early April she was actively reducing her debt load and planned to file a debt reduction plan -- as is required under the circumstances -- as part of her nomination. “It is close to $40,000 now,” she said. Since then, Coyne held a debt

fundraiser on April 22 in Toronto, appearing alongside former federal Liberal cabinet minister John Manley. Other fundraisers are planned for Ottawa in the coming months. Riding association president Lee Farnsworth said the nomination criteria are the same for all candidates. “My understanding is if they have a plan to pay off their debts, they are eligible,” said Farnsworth. Coyne ran for the federal Liberals previously in Toronto-Danforth in 2006 and withdrew from a nomination race in Don Valley West in 2008. “I never had deep roots in any single riding,” she said when asked why she planned to run in Ottawa. “I grew up in Ottawa and used to live (in Ottawa West-Nepean).” Vandenbeld said she is returning to seek the nomination because of the results seen in the riding during the 2011 election, which saw the Liberal Party pushed to third place nationwide. “We held onto our base,” said Vandenbeld, who put her career on hold and has been campaigning and selling memberships since last September. “If you want to be serious about running, you have to be here to build relationships.” The date for the nomination contest is anyone’s guess. Farnsworth said it will definitely occur by the end of this year, but mentioned that some would like to have it before the summer holiday arrives.

News - Streaming online video could be the next thing offered by the public library. Library staff is currently researching the option of adding streaming video, like what’s available on YouTube or Netflix, to the library’s digital holdings. It would make thousands of videos, films and music albums available to anyone with an Ottawa Public Library card and a computer, smart phone or tablet device. It’s a service that’s picking up steam in the library world thanks to companies like Hoopla Indieflix and OverDrive, said Craig Ginther, manager of technology services for the library. The Toronto Public library added Hoopla’s streaming collection to its catalogue in early April, making 10,000 films and 250,000 music albums available to its users. In Toronto, library users are limited to five Hoopla loans per month. About 130 North American cities offer the streaming service, including libraries in Hamilton, Guelph, Edmonton and Victoria. The possibility of streaming videos was just one of the technology initiatives Ginther highlighted in his update to the library board on April 14. The library is continuously expanding its digital offerings, including the quiet launch of a French-language section within the last ur. Anye-book two said. timweeks, e. NeGinther xpireto! veisr ehoping The library better integrate its digital offerings to make it easier for library users to find what they’re looking for. Instead of having separate digital catalogues for printed books, English e-books and French e-books, the library will use

APIs (application programming interfaces) to link those overlapping systems so they can be managed and viewed as one catalogue. In the next two months, library users will also start to see user recommendations added to the online catalogue at biblioottawalibrary.ca. The recommendations will be powered through Bookish, an online, user-generated recommendation engine. Ginther said he’s also keeping his eye on how devices like Apple’s iBeacon transmitter might be used to push messages directly to the cell phones of library users when they’re in a branch. The technology, which Ginther said is not currently used in libraries, could also be used to track which library branches and services users take advantage of. The issue of privacy and security for customers will be the top concern if Ottawa’s public library ever decides to investigate the possibility of using indoor positioning system transmitters. After the meeting board members got a sneak peek of the new “makerspace” at the Centrepointe branch, which was set to open to the public

Annual sale of leftover items lost on bus set for May 3 News - A lot has changed since the OC Transpo lost and found opened in 2001. For one thing, it receives far fewer CDs in need of being reunited with their owners. Walkmans have since been replaced on its shelves with iPods and smart phones. “You can really see the cycle of technological development here,” said Moe Moloughney, executive director of Heartwood House. The charity – and Moloughney – have presided over the discarded flotsam and jetsam found on buses and the OTrain since 2001, when the city showed “creativity” in partnering with Heartwood House to provide the lost -andfound. Instead of contracting the service to a company, Heartwood House is able to provide confidence-boosting jobs and real-life testing for participants of its literacy programs. Heartwood House embarked on the lost-and-found’s biggest change to date this winter when it moved to a new location at 404 McArthur Ave. That’s where the annual sale and auction of lost items will take place on Saturday, May 3 from noon until 2 p.m. The sale will actually be held in the sanctuary of the Unitarian church next door because it has more space. On offer will be a selection of electronics, instruments and other high-value items that have gone unclaimed for too long. Those items will be sold through silent auction. Thousands of other things like books, umbrellas, Thermoses and bags will be priced for sale, most under $5. “It’s lots of fun, Molough-

ney said. “It’s a great advantage to scoop up a bargain.” The items are what’s left behind from the 100 to 200 things left behind on the transit system each day. Anyone searching for their lost items can contact Heartwood House at 613-563-4011 or lostandfound@heartwoodhouse.ca. or drop by starting at 8 a.m., but wait until the next day. Items are held by OC Transpo security staff overnight until they can be delivered to Heartwood House for sorting the next day. Then, Heartwood House members get to work registering the items onto forms. Things of high value get entered into a computerized registry. Each day has its own box, because that’s usually the easiest way to match people with what they lost – at first. After a couple weeks, the detritus is sorted into boxes by type of stuff –gloves and mittens, children’s toys, travel mugs, books and a surprisingly high number of full-to-thebrim backpacks. Bikes don’t come to Heartwood House – the police handle those – but the lost-and-found has been known to have a wheelchair or two. Most things are kept for 31 days. Wallets, jewelry, cellphones and electronics get to hang around for two months in the hopes that someone will return for them. But when they don’t, it goes into the annual sale. While the charity does make some money from the sale – usually around $3,000 or $4,000 – it’s just as much about clearing out the up to 4,000 items that can accumulate over a busy winter of people losing their stuff. While travelling around the

Heartwood House executive director Moe Moloughney sorts through some of the items lost on the OC Transpo system that end up at the east-end charitable organization, where the lost-and-found is located. city, those who live in Sandy Hill near the University of Ottawa are the biggest culprits for losing things, Moloughney said – or at least, their stuff has the highest return rate. Residents of the east end, especially Vanier and Orleans, also seem to leave items on the bus at a higher rate than westenders, she said. Presto cards – now used for passes and payment on OC Transpo – are becoming a popular item in the lost-andfound, Moloughney said. Since the cards are transferrable and don’t have any identification on them, they can be hard to return. OC Transpso destroys most found Presto cards before they get to Heartwood House. If the card is registered, the balance is protected. But the

cards can be returned if people find a way to put their name on their card or attach it to another ID. Cell phones are also becoming difficult to reunite with their owners because of security features, Moloughney said. If a phone requires a code for access, lost-and-found staff can’t figure out who it belongs to or how to contact them. Many cell phones end up being recycled by Think Recycle. Heartwood House used to return about 80 per cent of cell phones that were found. Now that figure is at around 65 per cent, Moloughney said. She gets around eight to 10 cell phones a day. Moloughney said it’s not

the type or number of items lost that surprises her – it’s the number of items people turn in. “That kind of kindess strikes

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale Ottawa - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of

repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home.

Carlington Community Health Centre gets provincial cash $4.8 million earmarked for upgrades Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - The provincial government will be donating $4.8 million to the Carlington Community Health Centre to bolster services to local residents. The funding was announced on April 14 by Deb Matthews, minister of Health and LongTerm Care. The cash will go towards upgrades at the centre,

helping staff deliver patient care in a more efficient manner, but would also help forge a health partnership between the centre and an Ottawa Community Housing development proposed nearby. In 2011, Ottawa Community Housing and the health centre forged an agreement to build a 70-unit residential development with a medical clinic and social services hub located on the first floor. That

project would be built on spare land owned by the health centre on Merivale Road. Matthews was joined by Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Charelli and Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi, all of whom touted the benefits of having access to health care close to home. The centre offers “important health and social services that are tailored to the needs of the residents of our community,” Naqvi said in a media release. Among the programs offered at the CCHC is a breast-

feeding support program, part of the province’s Healthy Kids Strategy. That program offers assistance to new mothers. The health centre’s executive director Cameron Macleod stated the funding will help the centre fulfil its mandate of “building a healthier community … with an emphasis on helping the most vulnerable citizens.” The CCHC, like other community health centres in Ontario, operates as a non-profit entity designed to provide primary health care and programming to the local community.

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

The Carlington Community Health Centre will benefit from upgrades and partnerships made possible from a $4.8 million provincial grant.

On January 10, 1977, Ogilvie Subaru became just the 10th dealership in Canada selling those iconic all-wheel drive compacts with the unusual horizontallyopposed ‘pancake’ engines. On April 9 of this year, the Mierins family celebrated 37 successful years of Subaru sales in Ottawa with a brand new location on Parisien Street (just off St. Laurent and the Queensway). The Subaru family of retailers now numbers almost 90 stores from coast to coast and arguably none more impressive and inviting than Ottawa’s own Ogilvie Subaru. The success stories of both Subaru and the Mierins family over the years have blazed very similar trails. Subaru never wavered from their original philosophy that all-wheel drive was the best and safest way to power a passenger vehicle. When they first starting selling vehicles in Canada only large SUV’s and trucks offered all-wheel drive. Now almost every carmaker has followed Subaru’s lead. But where other manufacturers simply bolt on

another drive-train to an existing platform, Subaru designs every aspect their vehicles around a dedicated full-time revolutionary all-wheel drive system. Arnie Mierins and his family also started their vehicle retailing careers with a focused concept. They believe that buying new and pre-owned vehicles and getting them serviced shouldn’t be a stressful or difficult process. They have carefully selected and trained team members over the years that share this credo and treated them the way they want their clients treated; with respect. The end result is a legion of satisfied customers who refer friends and family on a daily basis and staff who buck the automotive industry trend by remaining with the same store year after year after year. Ogilvie Subaru’s manager Tom McCullough sees his team’s role as a very unique mission. While they are constantly welcoming repeat buyers who are very familiar with the entire Subaru

line-up, a great many customers at Ogilvie’s are first-time Subaru owners. Tom and his team take the time to provide personalized tutorials on the unique aspects of Subaru’s design and adhere to another long-time Mierins tenet; no pressure sales. The new showroom is warm, open and inviting with no closed-door ‘finance box’ offices, but instead has comfortable discussion tables and where Ogilvie Subaru consultants listen and learn about their customers’ needs before making recommendations. Among the dignitaries and guests at the grand opening, was Subaru of Canada President and CEO, Mr. Shiro Ohta. He congratulated Lisa Mierins, Tom, and the Ogilvie staff and offered his company’s commitment to continue to excel and improve in 2014. His company is setting high standards, as usual. Their growth in sales over the last decade is the envy of literally every auto manufacturer around the globe. They have set records for safety awards and received prestigious

The location of the new Ogilvie Subaru couldn’t have been better picked nor planned. Just off the Queensway, it’s accessible from any area of the Ottawa/ Gatineau region. With plenty of parking and a very large state-ofthe-art service and parts centre, customers don’t have to wait for appointments or for quick routine maintenance services. And rather than a segregated waiting area, Subaru service clients are welcome to relax in VIP seating with showroom guests. A wise move on Lisa Mierins’ part, because there’s no better salesperson for Subaru than a current Subaru owner. Many industry watchers over the years have bemoaned the lack of a Canadian car. Those critics have never ridden in or driven a Subaru. If anything was built for Canada, it’s Subaru. With intelligent all-wheel drive that requires no driver input, and league-leading fuel economy and spirited performance, all wrapped up in some very stylish and functional models, it’s no wonder that more and more Canadians every year are trading in their ordinary cars for an extraordinary opportunity to live and drive the adventure that is owning a Subaru. Lisa Mierins and Tom McCullough and the entire Ogilvie Subaru team extend a warm invitation to discover what confidence in motion is all about in a way that respects their customers and their world.

Meet the candidate: Catherine McKenney Former city-hall staffer gains retiring councillor’s support in Somerset Ottawa West News staff

News - Former city hall staffer Catherine McKenney says she wants to carry on Coun. Diane Holmes’ legacy in Somerset Ward. McKenney, 52, recently resigned from her job as senior advisor to deputy city manager Steve Kanellakos in order to run in the October municipal election. In that role she was second in command to Kanellakos, who oversees transit operations, parks and recreation, environmental services, bylaw enforcement, public health and public works. Her previous roles at city hall saw her working for councillors, including retiring Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, who McKenney applauded for working to undo decisions made in the 1960s to widen roads and remove trees. “It’s been people like Diane Holmes who have fought to repair that

for (former federal NDP leader) Ed Broadbent and (Ottawa Centre NDP MP) Paul Dewar and I worked for both of them as a legislative assistant. I’ve been involved in the campaign to move some of the buses off Albert Street, the 2,500 buses a day (that will be detoured there during LRT construction) ... Of course, while I was at the city, I did not take a front and centre role at the time because it was in conict with what I do. I didn’t want to use any “undue inuenceâ€? that I had, not that I had any, but that it would be perceived that I could.

damage,� McKenney said, adding that growth has been “unchecked� in Centretown for decades. Holmes has said she supports McKenney’s election bid. McKenney helped establish the Cornerstone women’s shelter. In addition to political jobs, she previously worked for Voice Print and Volunteer Canada. She lives in Dalhousie neighbourhood with her wife, Catharine Vandelinde and her their daughter. Q: Why are you running for city council in Somerset Ward? A: Somerset Ward is a great. It’s got great neighbourhoods. We need to make sure it stays a ward and a place where individuals and where families and where local independent businesses want to locate and want to live. I believe I am the best choice as candidate. I have the experience working for councillors, working with residents and understanding the process of how things get done. Q: Detail your past political and civic activism, whether it’s volunteering, campaigning, donations, lobbying or employment at any level of government or political party.

Dalhousie resident and former city-hall staffer Catherine McKenney is running for Somerset councillor.

Q: How are you going to fundraise for your campaign? A: I will be reaching out to individuals only ... who care about the same things I do. That will be the limit of my accepting donations.

A: Politically, I’ve worked for two city councillors: (former Kanata councillor) Alex Munter and Diane Holmes. I worked on campaigns for Alex Munter in his mayoral campaign and (former Kanata North councillor) Peggy Feltmate the ďŹ rst time she ran for council. I worked as an election organizer

Q: Do you have any potential pecuniary interests or a ďŹ nancial or family conict of interest? A: My partner, Catharine, works for the city. She is in the human resources department. The city has very strict rules around conict of interest and of course I would adhere to any of those.

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Q: What do you think the biggest issue was in Somerset Ward this term and how was it handled? What will be the big issue next term? A: Certainly this term I would have to say planning and growth (were the biggest issues). We had unprecedented growth spurt, at least in the condo development. Often it was out of scale with the neighbourhood around it. The residents that I talk to have been frustrated with the lack of consultation – they don’t feel they’re heard. Community development plans have been developed and that’s good, but I think that in terms of the issue of the last term it’s been growth and how we do growth. Looking forward, it’s making sure our streets are safe for cyclists and for pedestrians. That we widen sidewalks and have complete streets. That we have good innercity transit. That we have growth and development that ďŹ ts the scale of neighbourhoods. Other candidates registered in Somerset Ward include: Martin Canning, Thomas McVeigh, Jeff Morrison, Denis Schryburt and Lili Weemen.

Stoop-and-scoop this spring

S

pring. Even the word sounds good. Relief after frostbite season. Unfortunately, spring also brings with it the evidence that some dog walkers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing their duty after their pet has done theirs. Parks, boulevards, sidewalks and pathways in some places are awash in poop and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no fun for anyone. The vast majority of dog owners clean up after their pet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be knee deep in the stuff by now. So how do we convince the offending few to scoop? Do we need more laws and regulations? Pet owners would no doubt say â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? And our bylaw officers have better things to do than stake out parks on the off-chance a bad owner will offend in plain view. Do we need better education? The city advises owners to scoop poop and take it home, where they should flush it down the toilet so that our sewage system can treat the dog dirt like it does our own. Why not use a garbage can in the park or the bin at home? Turns out all the poop that ends up in the trash will become part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landfill, making it even more of a challenge to prevent toxins from seeping

into our waterways. Even if you own a dog and choose to use a garbage can, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a darn sight better than failing to scoop at all. Maybe we need to make things easier for all pet owners by providing better poop containers in the, shall we say, hotspots. That would take tax dollars. Some offenders may be children who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the idea of carrying a bag of poop to the garbage or back home. If your son or daughter takes the dog out for a walk, why not insist they bring home what Rover eliminates, just to be sure your family isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of the problem. In the end (no pun intended), if the problem gets worse, society will put in place penalties or regulations that affect all dog owners â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the good and the bad. Maybe licence costs will rise to cover clean-up costs. Maybe a bylaw you disagree with will be passed. To avoid those potential pitfalls, pet owners should be at the forefront of making sure all owners scoop after their dogs. Use peer pressure. Use education. Carry an extra bag to clean up after an owner who gives you a bad name. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog owners that have the most to lose.

Jazz band forms trans-generational bond

I

n 1974, Pierre Trudeau was re-elected with a minority government, president Richard Nixon imposed a 55 mileper-hour speed limit, Blazing Saddles opened in movie theatres and, in another significant cultural event, four transplanted Brits got together with two Canadians to play traditional jazz. That was the Apex Jazz Band, which on Sunday, April 27, at 2 p.m. celebrates its 40th year at its accustomed hangout, the Royal Oak in Kanata. When you think of the things that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last 40 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is to say, most things â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing accomplishment. Three members of the original band are still playing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; leader and clarinetist Roger Cramphorn, trombonist and business manager Rod Digney and bassist Ron Laight, who was only 19 at the time the band formed. The others are drummer Steve Barrette, trumpeter Gordon Tapp and Dave Johnstone on guitar and banjo. Although some people think of traditional jazz (sometimes referred to as Dixieland) as a kind of museum piece, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a living thing in the right hands. A contemporary trumpet player from New Orleans, Wynton Marsalis, likes to say that â&#x20AC;&#x153;all jazz is modern.â&#x20AC;? In other words, because it is improvised on the spot, in

You can test that out by going to the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, www.apexjazzband.ca, where you can see videos of the band and catch up on its recordings, dating back to 1977, and its history. There are more than 200 songs in Apexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repertoire and the band is still learning more. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first gig was at the Black Bottom, a club underneath the Gondola Restaurant on Bank Street. A number of other venues followed, until Apex settled in at its current location for Sunday afternoon shows 24 years ago. Much has changed over the years. The Internet, which has generally had a negative effect on live music, has also helped in some ways. Promotions is an obvious one, but there are others.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is no longer necessary to scour record shops to find a recording of something,â&#x20AC;? Rod Digney notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it exists, one is likely to find it with a simple five-minute Google search from the comfort of home. For us, this has facilitated what I like to call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;email rehearsals.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; One of the guys finds a vintage tune heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like the band to do and sends the rest of us a link to a YouTube video or audio we can all listen to. Often, the chords are also available on line, otherwise someone writes them out from the recording. We all have a good listen, often playing along and if he needs to, the trumpeter can write himself a chart for the lead line. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a quick talk-through just before our regular gig starts, then play it in the show, without ever having gotten together for a rehearsal.â&#x20AC;? The band members acknowledge that the music does appeal to an older crowd. But not exclusively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Throughout our existence as a band,â&#x20AC;? says Rod Digney, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have learned that young people also love the music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that they like it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young people (I am thinking collegeaged students) who would not walk across the street to hear the band, generally get very enthusiastic about the music if they happen to

stumble across us playing, say, at an outdoor venue.â&#x20AC;? Adds Roger Cramphorn, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I noticed throughout my musical life here was that generally, the older people came along first then followed by the next generation and then the last few years, the grandchildren started to appear! This gave me great joy because we were teaching kids to enjoy live music and we seemed to form a trans-generational bond with them so we were passing on the love of the music.â&#x20AC;? Can you think of anything better to be doing for 40 years?

Universal childcare is an economic issue

W

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse work (transit, clothing, work luncheons, etc.), would leave me with very little take home pay. In the cost-benefit analysis – me returning to work or continuing to run my home business part-time so I could still be the point person at home – the latter has always won. If I had the option of affordable childcare, I’d be back into the public sphere in a flash. As it stands, I don’t have a real choice. I’ve concluded that Canada needs a national system of affordable, quality childcare. This is not purely a gendered argument. There is much research out there to suggest that affordable childcare for families can offer a major economic benefit, and not just for parents with young children. Companies invest a lot in young men and women, to train them and help them build their careers. When the

babies arrive, these men and women are often forced to make a choice between family and their careers. The result is that many – mostly women – are fleeing the workforce in droves at key points in their career trajectories. It’s no secret that the population is aging and that the baby boomers are retiring en masse. We need all working-age people to stay in the workforce, to continue to build our economy and pay taxes to support social programs and infrastructure programs. The only way to ensure this happens is to give men and women real choices. The only way to do that is to create a national system of high quality and affordable childcare. Canada has a number of models to emulate. The most obviously cited example is Quebec’s seven-dollar-perday system. Critics have tout-

ing to household income. Unfortunately, affordable childcare is a topic that comes and goes in popularity. It’s a great thing to promise in an election, but when the number crunching begins, most leaders turn their backs on it. People using the system advocate for better quality and affordability, but quickly abandon the cause once their own children are school-aged. Part of the problem is that

ed it as expensive and lacking oversight in terms of quality. The latter point is mostly true. Two years ago, an American journalist wrote about the superior preschools in France, which have a standardized quality of teaching staff, food and education. In some of the Nordic countries, there are examples of standardized pay schedules, where all parents receive government subsidies, but on a sliding scale accord-

hen I first became a mother, I wasn’t sure universallysubsidized childcare was the best thing for families or for tax payers. At the time, I felt I was young enough to take a break from my career, and I valued the care that only I could provide to my children. I didn’t want a surrogate. I wanted to be supermom, in the sense that I would be the one to manage the nurture, feeding and education of my young babes. Three children in and almost a decade later, I’ve changed my mind. Completely. I’ve been managing a home business and working out various part-time childcare arrangements for so many years that I realize the inconsistency of it all has left us all quite stressed out. Perhaps more significantly, the lack of affordable childcare has severely limited my career options. We’ve crunched the numbers upside down and sideways on a regular basis, and every time we realize that paying for care for three children – even when it was just two – plus the cost of me going into a public forum to

affordable childcare is always presented as an issue for the people that will actually use the system. There’s little emphasis on the benefits of a universal childcare system to people of all ages. Affordable and universally accessible childcare is, frankly, a silver bullet if we want to maintain and build a workforce of competent men and women to drive the economy. As we look forward to Canada 20 years from now, we shouldn’t be asking how we can afford to implement a national childcare strategy, but how we can’t.

News - In hopes that the snow is finally gone for good, the city announced its time to clean up those parks and streets. The city officially launched its community-based Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital campaign at the Overbrook Community Centre on April 15. The campaign, which encourages individuals to hold clean-up events to help keep the city clean, is celebrating its 21st year, and its 10th year partnering with Tim Hortons. According to the city, last year the campaign collected a total of 140,000 kilograms of liter from 1,400 locations with a total of 80,272 volunteers. How to participate: • Go to ottawa.ca, or call 311 (TTY: 613-580-2401) to register for the cleanup. The new interactive map on our website makes it easier than ever. • Select a location such as a park, roadway, ravine, shore-

Weekend walking events to promote urban landscapes Parks, hospital and sand dune walks part of Jane’s Walk Ottawa Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - It’s time to put on your walking shoes. Jane’s Walk Ottawa, an annual event that encourages city residents to explore their neighbourhoods, will take place on May 3 and 4 and participants will have a choice of a number of venues throughout the city. The walks offer the opportunity to: • Find out where Centretown’s foodie hangouts are • Discover Ottawa’s urban sand dune • Talk about everything parks related in Vanier • Celebrate Montfort Hospital’s 60th anniversary, an event which will offer facts about the area and grounds as well as the history of the hospital during the tour. Organizers expect there to be more than 50 walks over the weekend with walks on a range of topics. Janes Walk takes place in more than 100 cities all over the world and is named after

P

writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs. The walks typically are held during the first weekend of May to coincide with Jacobs’s birthday. In 2013, more than 2,000 local people participated in the event. The walks are given once during the weekend, take about an hour, and cover around one to two kilometres. The walks are free, led by volunteers and can focus on just about anything. The Vanier Beautification Committee is organizing a walk which will focus on its local parks. The purpose of the walk is to discuss the parks, the history of the area including Marier, Emond and Optimiste parks and the Vanier Cenotaph. A discussion will follow. “We picked parks and these in particular including the cenotaph, because we adopted these last year and we have plans to further develop Marier Park and install a perennial garden in Optimiste Park,” said Tina Delaney, committee chairwoman. “We would like to invite people to come out

and discover the parks and if interested find out more about volunteering with events in the parks.” Promoting the event at a recent Vanier Community Association meeting on April 8, Dan Shipley said the Beautification Committee’s walk would be a great way to learn about the parks and what the avid gardening committee does in the neighbourhood. To kick off a weekend, organizers for this year’s event have a Jane’s Talk, Neighbourhood Narratives, event planned for at the Arts Court, 2 Daley Ave., on May 1 at 7 p.m. The night will offer the chance to learn from a group of local storytellers and experience “Ottawa in One Room,” a video by local artist Jessica Aylsworth. Walks are also taking place in the ByWard Market, the Glebe, Old Ottawa South, Heron Park, Blossom Park and Nepean among others. There will also be some French walks available. Among the walks to check out are:

infrastructure and social interaction of the university and the city, which includes the Sandy Hill area. • Centretown Garden Gems make Connection: The walk will focus on seven small gardens in Centretown. • Art Walk: The walk will take participants to four galleries in the Wellington West/ Hintonburg area. • Discovering the O-Train Multi-Use Path: This walk will take participants along

Police rescue woman from Rideau River Backseat of patrol car used as flotation device by responder Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Ottawa police rescued a woman who jumped in the Rideau River at Cummings Bridge downtown on April 14 around 9 p.m. Police officers were the first to respond and tried to talk to the woman before she jumped off the bridge into the fast-moving water, said acting Insp. Glenn Wasson. “They attempted to engage the female in conversation,”

he said. “After about a minute of conversation or lack thereof, the female decided to jump into the river.” The water was flowing north, so police moved towards the St. Patrick Bridge, looking for the female and using lighting that was set up by the Ottawa fire department. She was spotted alive in the water 10 minutes later, floating towards the St. Patrick Bridge.

Const. Colin Bowie then removed the back seat of the police cruiser, which is designed by the manufacturer to be used as an emergency flotation device, and jumped into the water. “Const. Bowie made a split second decision to jump into the water using the rear seat of the police cruiser and was able to save the female,” Wasson said. “It’s a very heroic decision that he made.” Getting out of the water,

Bowie was assisted by two other police officers at the scene, Const. Pat Lafrenière and Const. Kristina Correa. They went into the water to assist Bowie and the female, who had hypothermia. “Anytime you’re doing a rescue like that, it’s dangerous, whether the water’s moving fast or not,” Wasson said. The young woman was taken to the hospital by ambulance, where she recovered from hypothermia and was connected with medical personnel. Police would only have res-

cue operations like this about every two or three years, police said. About an hour later, a female officer responded to a female threatening to jump off the Somerset Bridge, the pedestrian bridge between Colonel By Drive and the Queen Elizabeth Parkway. The officer was able to speak with the female and calm her down before the incident escalated. “It just highlights a lot of excellent work,” Wasson said. “Having two calls back-toback in such a short period is exceptional.”

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Acting Insp. Glenn Wasson listens to a question from a reporter on April 15. On April 14, police officers performed a water rescue near the Cummings Bridge in downtown Ottawa.

Although many of you are eager to lace up your shoes and hit the pavement in the fresh outdoor air, you must first ensure you have the right equipment and that you are exercising in moderation. Overtraining can lead to repetitive strain injuries which occur when exercise intensity, frequency or duration is excessive, and the exerciser doesn’t allow sufficient recovery in between workouts. Chronic insufficient recovery can actually do the body harm and set back training goals. In other words, overtraining can be counterproductive. Overtraining can also quickly lead to the development of injuries such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, metatarsal stress fractures, Achilles tendinitis and many more painful problems. The trick to proper spring training is

proper support. These days more and more people are using custom orthotics and proper running shoes to correct biomechanical inefficiencies, which can keep them healthy during spring training. This is where the experts at BioPedhttp:// bioped.com in Ottawa can help.

BioPed Pedorthists employ a highly disciplined approach around the assessment, fabrication, fitting and adjustment of many varieties of custom orthoticshttp://bioped.com/ about/right_process.asp every day. There is a large variety of orthotic types to help with the many different foot conditions that they see. Also, you shouldn’t have to wait until the problem develops fully before addressing the situation. Custom orthotics can be made for running shoes, sandals – or even roller blades or skates! They also carry great looking

footwear including; athletic, comfort, sandals, and orthopedic extra depth shoes – all of which can be sized to fit most foot types. Patients are never left having to find a pair of shoes on their own at BioPed. Their experienced staff knows that can often result in improper selection. The main contributor to the very problem they are attempting to correct! If you’re ready to start spring train safely, or just enjoy a slow, leisurely spring stroll in ultimate comfort, it’s time to visit BioPed today.http://bioped.com/ locations/locations.asp?id=89 BioPed has 4 clinics in Ottawa – located in Barrhaven, Kanata, Orleans or at the Westgate shopping centre.

Park accessible to public would take up 40 per cent of site Continued from page 1

Architect Gianni Ria from Page and Steele in Toronto has designed two, 27-storey concave glass towers with a small, 750-square metre floorplate. The towers will rise in two phases: the first at the northeast corner of the site, which is currently a surface parking lot. The tower would sit atop a curved, three-storey podium that’s 1.5 metres wider than the tower. Four townhomes facing Gilmour Street are planning for that podium. The second tower would take the place of the existing medical building at the northwest corner of the site. Its identical podium would house a single, 370-square metre retail unit. The three-storey podium levels will be clad in limestone to help the buildings fit into Centretown’s heritage streetscape, Ria said. Once the second tower is built – within the next decade, Ria said, a “skylink” pedestrian walkway will be added to connect the two towers. “We were looking for iconic buildings,” Ria said. The two towers would hold a total of 500 residential units.

The city’s policy also calls for interesting articulation at the top of the building and Ria said he has designed a unique topper to house the mechanical functions, as well as spiraling balconies that culminate at the top of the towers. But the key feature isn’t the towers – it’s the promise of new “open space” – a public park/square at the corner of O’Connor and Gilmour. The rare opportunity to create new gathering spaces and to green Centretown was what drove the creation of the controversial tall landmark buildings clause contained in the community design plan for Centretown. The issue divided residents when a final version of the plan was debated in 2013. The Centretown Citizens Community Association board even took the unheard-of step of partnering with representatives from the development industry – led by FoTenn consultants partner Ted Fobert – to draft an alternate policy aimed at creating green spaces downtown. Now, Fobert is guiding Mastercraft Starwood through the development application process for its landmark building. The park would be built as

part of the first phase of development and take up 40 per cent of the lot, as the city’s policy requires, Fobert said. That would eventually be reduced to 38 per cent when the second tower is built. There would be views from the park to art inside the open glass lobby of the first building, Fobert said. Where Fobert and the city are at odds is the ownership of the park. A last-minute change to the tall landmark buildings clause requires the open space to be deeded to the city, but Mastercraft Starwood would rather keep ownership of the parkland and pay to maintain the landscaping. The developer also wants to build a four-level parking garage under the park, which might not jive with the city’s ownership of that piece of land, Fobert said. Mastercraft Starwood is proposing to give the city a permanent surface access agreement as a compromise to make the park “public.” Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes wasn’t enthused about the half measure. During an April 15 Centretown Citizens Community Association meeting, she bemoaned the proposal’s failure to meet both the 40 per

cent provision for public open space and the 20-metre tower separation distance. The policy calls for the buildings to be separated by 20 metres and even with the curved, concave design, the two towers are only between 15 and 18 metres apart, Fobert said. “I think it comes very close to meeting the intent of the tall landmark buildings clause,” he said. “It will be a very distinctive building in the skyline.” The developer also wants to make sure the park, which is being designed by noted Montreal landscape designer Claude Cormier, is well-maintained, Ria said. Cormier is also designing a unique feature for a hard-surface parking, drop-off and pedestrian area. They’re calling it the “carpet” and the mosaic of hard materials will resemble something similar Cormier designed for the entrance to the Four Seasons hotel in Toronto. “It’s pretty cool,” Fobert said. “It’s a parking areas in association with the open space. The vehicular space becomes a patterned material ... it pedestrianizes it and creates an open space.”

SUBMITTED

This graphic from the Centretown community design plan shows the specifications required for tall towers, like the ones proposed for 267 O’Connor St. There would be room for about four visitor vehicles in unmarked spaces on the “carpet,” Ria said. The developer is prepping to submit the rezoning application to the city in the next couple of weeks, Fobert said. Given the controversy when the tall landmark buildings clause was drafted, Fobert said

there is bound to be “mixed reaction” to the proposal. He anticipates more Centretown residents will be opposed to the two towers than in favour. Representatives from Mastercraft Starwood’s team are expected to present the proposal to the Centretown community association’s planning committee in early May.

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

Rail warning light to be added to Transitway Flashing amber light to be added near fatal crash site Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city hopes a new flashing light reminding OC Transpo drivers of rail tracks ahead will make the Transitway safer. There is already a sign warning people of the rail crossing ahead at the site of a fatal collision that killed six people when an OC Transpo bus and Via train collided on Sept. 18. OC Transpo general manager John Manconi said the warning light isn’t being recommended due to reports of rail signal malfunctions, but it could help transit users and operators feel safer. “They said that adding the flashing light aids in improving the situation,” he said. “So yes, everything we can do to improve things in any location is a worthwhile investment.” The new sign will be placed 210 metres before the rail crossing as bus drivers are headed northbound.

There is a curve in that spot, so extra emphasis is warranted, said Christopher Philip, an engineer with a consultant group the city hired called CIMA. While Philip studied different options, including trying to connect the warning light with the rail signal so that it would go off in advance of or at the same time a train approached, he concluded the best option was to have the amber light flash continuously. The situation is different in the southbound direction, Philip said. No light is needed there. “There are no factors that create a dilemma zone (in the southbound directions),” Philips said. “The two (directions) do not have to be the same.” SIGNAL REPAIRS

rail crossings in Barrhaven as more testing and repairs take place to get to the bottom of recent high-profile signal malfunctions. Signals at the Transitway, Fallowfield Road, Woodroffe Avenue, Greenbank Road, Jockvale Road and Strandherd Road will be affected, Via said on April 16. That move followed pressure from Mayor Jim Watson and federal politicians, including Ottawa WestNepean MP John Baird. On April 10 Via announced trains would operate at a reduced speed through those six crossings and staff would be stationed at the rail crossings to “provide supplementary support” and ensure drivers stop at the crossings. Via and the city are also looking at whether installing cameras at rail crossings would help minimize the response time if technicians are needed. The Ottawa police have ruled out mischief or tampering as the cause of crossing malfunctions. Via had requested an investigation on April 10. Philips also reviewed the traffic speed limit in that section of the Transitway at Fallowfield Road and concluded the city’s speed limit of 50 km/h is acceptable, even though a 60 km/h speed limit would comply with the city’s policies. Still, Philips said he could find no compelling reason to change the speed at this time, especially since the Transitway has fewer vehicles and therefore fewer opportunities for conflicts or collisions. The city lowered the speed limit to 60 km/h in the fall. At the same time, trees and shrubs were removed from the area to improve visibility at the level crossing. The transit commission also

The recommendation was based on a review of a 30-year-old study presented to transit commissioners at a briefing on April 9. The report from consultant MMM Group told 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. Factors include buses moving slower as they gear up from a stop, as well as the increased probability of stalling on the tracks. The report also recommends that OC Transpo buses only use

fully signalled rail crossings. As a result, the city will spend between $200,000 and $400,000 to add gates to four crossings that are currently signalled only with lights: 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. OC Transpo buses regularly traverse 20 of the 75 rail crossings in the city.

Pineview Community Association will hold its first general meeting on April 28 at John Paul II Elementary School. Pineview residents Lynn Lau, right, and Heather Scott, are organizing the event.

Pineview Community Association hosts first meeting Board members, volunteers wanted for new group Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - For the first time in more than 20 years, the Pineview Community Association will hold a general meeting, which will take place at John Paul II Elementary School on April 28, starting at 7 p.m. Pineview residents Lynn Lau and Heather Scott, who have been organizing the event, first met at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum. The two moms discovered they both lived in Pineview and their conversation soon turned to their community. Both said they felt the neighbourhood lacked community-focused events and activities. Lau said the presence of a community association would

help improve that and make residents come together. “I think it’s a really nice thing to have in a community,” Lau said. Both moms said they would like to see local play groups or classes offered, perhaps initiated by the association.Currently, the two have frequented other communities to fill the gap, including attending playgroups in Blackburn Hamlet and going to the Gloucester North Branch library -- a 45 minute walk from their home. “We just want to have something close that we can walk,” Scott said. The result was the two of them launching the Pineview Community Association in the living room of one of their homes. Now the two are looking to make it official and hold a meeting to both gain local interest and board members for the association to officially take off. The meeting will be a

chance for the association to fill out, Lau said. “We are looking for other board members: secretary, treasurer, and directors,” Lau said. The agenda is still being finalized, but the goals for the evening will be to vote on board positions and ratify the board’s constitution. A draft of the association’s constitution is available: https://docs. com/1279Q. The results of a survey Lau and Scott created and posted in February will also be revealed. Lau said there is still time for residents to complete the survey: surveymonkey.com/ s/577B535. The evening will wrap up by 9 p.m. Lau said.

News - The Gloucester Fair is changing its name and its dates. The fair’s board of directors announced the date change in February, moving from four days in May to 10 days in late August. Because the board was attempting to reflect the more regional nature of the fair, they held a contest to find a new name. The winner was Kenny Duplessis, from North Bay, Ont. “We had more than 500 entries,” Bloom said. “And we ended up learning some things.” One of the suggestions was Silly Billy, a nod to Prince William Frederick, the Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh.

Fair President Maurice Lafortune said The Capital Fair was the most welcoming title. “With our massive midway, great kids program and exciting adult programming we are so looking forward to 10 days of wall to wall fun,” Lafortune said. Bloom said the midway is twice the size of previous years, with a lot more adult rides. There are also plans for an extra monster truck show, a horse pull, western barrel races, a craft show and a whole pet area. “We really want to highlight the agriculture nature of the fair, because of the new timing,” Bloom said, adding there will be more surprises to come before opening day. Originally started as an offshoot of the City of Gloucester’s parks and recreation de-

partment, the fair started in the parking lot of the Earl Armstrong Arena on Ogilvie Road, nearly three decades ago. The fair board is a working one and Lafortune said members can be found throughout the fairgrounds driving fence spikes into the ground or pitching in wherever else they’re needed. It was moved to the Rideau Carleton Raceway in 1997 largely because it had outgrown its home. Bloom said the board began to consider taking over the late-August dates a few years ago when the Super Ex was suspended in 2011. “We are not looking to take over for the Ex,” Bloom said. Bloom said the Gloucester fair will still maintain its smaller, regional fair feel, despite the extended timelines and addition of more rides and attractions.

Shirley Residents launch Crime Prevention Vanier Seward

Listening, Learning and Leading

Vice-Chair

Four new initiatives to start this spring Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Although crime rates in Vanier have declined, residents in Vanier are still taking crime prevention seriously. A group of neighbours in the community have launched Crime Prevention Vanier, in an effort to keep crime prevention and reporting in the forefront of the public mind. “I wondered if there was more that could be done that focused specifically on crime prevention and reporting,” said Lucie Marleau, who is leading the charge. Along with other residents, Marleau met with Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and Vanier community police officer Jacques Carriere to discuss the initiatives the group wanted to start. Crime Prevention Ottawa launched Together for Vanier in 2007, which sparked a surge of residents becoming involved in the community. The result was a community association and a beautification committee, which today continue to operate and garner interest from new and long-time residents alike. In 2012, Crime Prevention Ottawa announced it would be pulling its support from Vanier so it could focus on other areas of the city. At the time, the crime rate had significantly declined and reporting crimes was at a steady increase. There were a number of neighbour-

Residents thinking of starting up a new watch are encouraged to contact the Vanier Community Police Centre. hood watches in operation and the community association and the beautification committee had created strong relationships with its community police officer and the area’s city councillor. The hope, Crime Prevention Ottawa said at the time, was that residents would continue to work in a crime prevention capacity. For awhile, the association and beautification continued to operate specific committees and outings related to dealing with crime. Beautification continued to hold its weekly Eyes on Vanier walkabouts in the spring and summer where walkers would meet up, walk the neighbourhood and report crimes they saw in progress. The association created a health and safety committee, to address residents concerns. Only because of lack of crime, and interest, Beautification cancelled the walkabouts last year.

With the new Crime Prevention Vanier, Marleau said the return of Eyes on Vanier walkabouts will take on a double duty -- crime prevention and social walks --and hopefully garner more interest from residents. “When the walkabout was first created, ‘walkaboos’ could hardly go two blocks without reporting some mischief or infraction to OPS or 311,” Marleau said. “As less and less reporting was needing to be done, we focused the walkabout on other things like picking up trash, themed and destination walks, and distributing event flyers. The aim of Eyes on Vanier Walkabout 2014 will be determined by the walkaboos who show up. It is not a structured walkabout with a specific objective. Those who show up will determine together what they want to do, where they want to walk.” It will offer residents an opportunity to generate a sense of

belonging, allowing them to get of the Board to know its many cool nooks and crannies of the area, Mar- shirley.seward@ocdsb.ca leau added. www.shirleyseward.com “That said, I’m hopeful that 613-851-4716 the walkabout will have a crime reporting lens,” she said.

Lowertown recognizes its volunteers Group aims to make celebration an annual event Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Lowertown Community Association started its April 14 meeting on a pleasant note, offering a big thank you to all its volunteers. The association said it was high time the group gave a big thank you to all those who help make the community a great place to live, especially since the meeting was held during volun-

teer week. “Everyone in the room deserves a big thank you,” said Vera Etches, a community association board member who organized the event, adding it’s evident all the volunteers’ hard work helps make the community a better place. From delivering the local neighborhood newsletter, to helping out with shoveling the community skating rink, the level of participation in the community is

exceptional and worth taking the time to recognize, said Etches. The event offered a simple reward to the community’s volunteers: just coffee and snacks, but the gesture was genuine, one the association said it aims to do more often. “We haven’t done this in the past, but I think we should try and have some socializing time,” Etches said. The association also used the meeting as an opportunity to re-

cruit more volunteers; an extra set of hands are needed to help a recently created committee plan for Canada’s 150th birthday. “We want to start having discussions about Lowertown’s heritage, how we can improve and our legacy,” said planning committee chairwoman Sylvie Grenier. “We’ve all been talking about this over the years but never focused on it. This will be an opportunity to do that.” For more information about the new committee or to find out how to volunteer for the association email info@lowertown.ca.

Capital City Opera goes Hollywood for upcoming show Algonquin Student Commons the venue for showcase of film arias steph.willems@metroland.com

Arts - Whether a crime thriller, romance, or war saga, many of your favourite movies contain snippets of opera in their soundtracks. Ottawa’s own Capital City Opera is aiming to highlight the use of famous arias on film during their next production, Opera in Hollywood 2. As the title implies, this production isn’t the first time the subject has been explored by the upstart opera company, which bills itself as an accessible opera experience for newcomers to the genre. Capital City Opera is entering its third season operating in

Ottawa, and has become better known due to the staging of performances at events and in parks. Their indoor venue for large productions was, until last year, the Mayfair Theatre in Old Ottawa South. Artistic director Rory McGlynn and technical director Bart Tecter wanted the company’s productions to bring opera to a familiar level that people new to the experience would find fun. “They really wanted to bring it into a movie theatre,” said Kimberly Bentham, one of the opera’s singers. “It was also an Ottawa landmark, with great acoustics for singing.” Due to a lack of space for changing and receptions, the group has since moved its pro-

“It’s an amazing space – it seems to fit the bill for everything,” said Bentham, adding that the group enlisted the help of visual media students to create a promotional video for them.

The $6.2 million build of the new hospice facility, located on 110 McCurdy Dr., began when Hospice Care Ottawa purchased the former church in June, 2013. Now, much of the interior of the building has been renovated and administrative staff has moved into the building in early April. Lisa Sullivan, Hospice Care Ottawa’s executive director, attributes much of this progress to the millions of dollars in cash and in-kind donations donated from the community members, the help of construction companies and volunteers. “We are just so thrilled,” said Sullivan about the hospice’s progress. “The people we have worked with, the construction companies and all the volunteers and the people who have donated things to make this happen have been fabulous.” With the kitchen done as well as the common room and dining room nearing completion, the next step for the hospice is phase two: introducing day programming. “What we’d like to offer is three days a week of day hospice; so somewhere between 15 to 20 people come each day where they receive social support. So they get nurse counselling and we have different therapies

Employees and volunteers with Hospice Care Ottawa stand in the newly renovated Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice interior on April 16, holding an artist rendering of what the hospice will look like when construction is completed. like music and art, reiki and massage and different activities for them during the day, and they get a lunch,” said Sullivan. “And then that provides, a day of rest for the person who is looking after them as well.” Other programs would include grief and bereavement counselling, peer support groups and more. Sullivan said she hopes to get some

of these programs started this fall, drawing on Hospice Care Ottawa’s over 600 volunteers. “Our volunteers do everything from promote events to providing care in the actual residence, so they work alongside the nurses in providing care,” said Sullivan, with volunteers having more than 30 hours of training. “They are a really key component to how we operate.”

The final phase of the construction is building the 10 bed residence. Sullivan said she hopes to have the entire project done by 2016. HIKE AND OTHER EVENTS

To give the community a look into the hospice’s progress and fundraise for the annual budget, Hospice Care Ottawa is hosting a Hike for Hospice

Palliative Care at both hospice locations in Ottawa. The hike at the May Court Hospice in Old Ottawa South will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, while the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice hike will take place from noon to 3 p.m. The Kanata hike will be a fivekilometre walk around the community starting at the hospice. “There will be events and activities outside and we will have a big tent in case the weather doesn’t cooperate,” said Sullivan. There will also be a “sneak peak” of the interior of the hospice building, she said, giving community members a first look at the work that has gone on. Sullivan said she hopes that gives people a sense of what the hospice will be like and get them thinking about whether they want to volunteer or support the hospice. It’s also a crucial first step towards making sure the hospice remains part of the community. The idea is, you know, thinking about death and dying is scary for most people, and we want the hospice to be a comfortable place. We don’t want people to be frightened of it,” said Sullivan. “When you have a residence, people are dying. It’s sad, but for the most part, any hospice you go into, it’s also really a nice, happy place because people are really enjoying life till the end. So we want people to feel comfortable and open this up to make the community feel like they own it.” To that end, Sullivan said the community is welcome to view July 1st fireworks from the hospice grounds, as has been the tradition for years. The hospice plans to provide refreshments and some food. The grand opening of the hospice will be Sept. 22, which will run alongside Hospice Care Ottawa’s annual general meeting.

Protesters demand telecom giants close digital divide Low-income advocacy group asking for cheap Internet access Erin McCracken

erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - For Elmvale resident Robert Fitzpatrick, the Internet is a lifeline. Without online access to services, the U.S. resident says he wouldn’t even be able to live in Canada with his Canadian wife. “If it wasn’t for the Internet, I wouldn’t even be here right now,” said Fitzpatrick. He said the Internet allows him to regularly connect with Immigration Canada and fill out the necessary forms in his quest for Canadian citizenship, which is especially important because there is no immigration office near his home. But, he says, the $70 price tag he pays every month is too high, and has, in the past, made it tough for him and his wife to stretch their dollars. They’ve even turned to the food bank during tough times. This prompted Fitzpatrick to join about 40 members of the Association of Communi-

ty Organizations for Reform Now, a low-income advocacy group with chapters in Ottawa, and march 10 kilometres through the downtown on April 17. They are calling on Bell, Rogers, Telus, and the federal government to provide people living below the low-income measure with high-speed Internet for $10 a month. “Fight, fight, fight. Internet is a right,” ACORN members chanted near the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights at the corner of Elgin and Lisgar streets. Some walked while others navigated their wheelchairs in a loop that took them past the Parliament Buildings as well as Industry Minister James Moore’s Queen Street office. ACORN members chose to begin and end their rally at the human rights memorial to reflect a 2011 United Nations report stating Internet access is a human right. “And I agree with that because I cannot even begin to describe all the ways that people are connected … with the

Internet,” Fitzpatrick said. ACORN cites a 2010 Statistics Canada report outlining the disparity in access between high and low-income earners. About 54 per cent of households that earn $30,000 or less had home Internet access, whereas 97 per cent of households making $87,000 or more were connected online. Figures released in a 2012 Statistics Canada Internet usage survey tell a similar story. Almost all those households surveyed making $94,000 or more had home Internet access, while 58 per cent of households earning $30,000 or less were connected online. But the advocacy group points to promising developments south of the border where Comcast launched an Internet program in 2011, offering low-speed Internet for about $10 a month, free Internet training and the chance to purchase a low-cost computer. ACORN’s members are also closely watching Toron-

Kathleen Fortin leads the way at the start of a 10-kilometre march downtown on April 17. She joined about 40 members of ACORN, a national advocacy group for low-income earners, to call on telecommunications companies to provide $10-a-month Internet access to those in need. to, where Rogers launched a pilot program last August to provide high-speed Internet to some community housing residents for about $10 a

month, as well as the opportunity to buy a refurbished $150 computer. “It’s something that is a huge part of everybody’s life,

and, like food or anything else I think that there should be easier and less costly access, especially for kids nowadays,” said Vanier resident Jaye Rutter. She attended the rally because she says she pays $79.95 a month to connect online, which eats into her grocery budget. “You can’t find a job the old way anymore,” she added. “You can’t even go in and bring in a resume. Everything is through the computer. It’s like a telephone. It’s necessary.” For some, like Fitzpatrick, free Internet access at Ottawa library branches is neither convenient, nor easily accessible. Computer use is limited, said the chair of ACORN’s South Ottawa chapter. Because of his visual impairment, Fitzpatrick must hook up a device to a computer that reads words on the screen to him. But he isn’t able to plug his portable screen reader into a library computer. “A library computer would not be the best solution,” he said.

Ottawa West News EMC - Thursday, April 24, 2014

Community - Canada is home to some of the world’s best hair dressers, including one of Kanata’s own – Silas Tsang. This February, Tsang and two other Canadians came home with four out of five awards from the Haute Coiffure Française annual competition, where more than 100 hair dressers from around the world compete annually for five awards. This was the first time three Canadians had come home with four of the five awards. It was also Tsang’s first international award. “It was amazing,” said Tsang. “It was a really good experience for me.” This is not the first time Tsang has won praise, though his acclaim so far had been limited to awards in Canada. A seven-year veteran of hair dressing competitions in Canada and North America, Tsang has won colourist of the year in national competition as well as salon team of the year, and has been a North American finalist for eight years. However, this second place finish at Haute Coiffure Française is the pinnacle so far. Hair dressing has been Tsang’s passion for many years, starting out young in England and starting work in Kanata in 1993. Now, he is the creative director at Blushes high-end hair and beauty salon. “I love hair dressing,” said Tsang. “I think it’s one kind of

Kanata hair dresser Silas Tsang won second place in the Haute Coiffure Française overall category earlier this year. art work that is really instant, showing the result after only half an hour, maybe an hour. Some artists spend hours and hours, or years and years on a painting.” While Tsang said the dayto-day work of making customers happy with a new haircut or style is part of his passion, competing allows him to use his imagination and express himself. However, competing is an involved process, including hours of experimenting and several months to prepare for an event like Haute Coiffure Française, said Tsang. Each competitor has to create an entire look for a model, including makeup and clothing. This requires a team a four: a hair dresser, colourist, make-up artist and a model. For Tsang, the team consisted of his wife, Dorothy Tsang (colourist and makeup artist) and local model Stephanie Priest.

After coming up with a look, the team must create it and have their model photographed. The photos are submitted to judges who then invite a handful of finalists to Paris. After that, the goal is to recreate the look in 90 minutes in front of judges and other hair dressers of acclaim, sticking as closely to the photo as possible. Only the outfit and makeup can change, said Tsang. Coming up with a style was a struggle at first, he said. “The French still like a certain style, they want it more fairy tale,” he said, while his own style is more modern. While Tsang knew he could have created something to appease the judges, he decided to follow his own muse instead, going with a more futuristic, steam-punk inspired look. “Before I went to Paris, I just wanted to do the best I can,” he said. But with a successful 90-minute performance, Tsang was confident in placing, and said he was happy with the second place award in the overall category. With an international award under his belt, Tsang’s record makes him a strong candidate for a judge in major competitions. However, he said he still has one last major hurdle: after being a finalist for the North American Hairstyling Awards eight times, Tsang hopes to finally win. As for this spring and summer’s upcoming hair trends, Tsang said a modern take on the bob and pixie cut are in style, along with pastel colours.

Sir Robert Borden student winner of CHEO logo contest Erin McCracken

erin.mccracken@metrolandmedia.com

News - In just one week, Taylor Creighton transformed a blank piece of paper into a source of inspiration for others. Her superhero bear design was chosen from among more than 120 student designs to become the logo for this year’s Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario’s telethon, which happens in June. “It took me like a week because it was in class, so like every period I’d be drawing it,” Creighton, 17, said, following the official unveiling of her logo Wednesday, April 16, at Sir Robert Borden High school, where she attends Grade 12. Superman was her inspiration, and once she had the idea, she was able to quickly bring it to life. “It was different when I started it and then I just thought about flying, and then it came to me,” the Barrhaven resident said. Her creation will be featured on merchandise ranging from plush teddy bears and hats to golf shirts and su-

perhero capes, and will play an important role in helping the CHEO Foundation reach its goal to raise $6.8 million through the 31st telethon this year. Last year, the telethon generated a record-breaking $6.7 million. The funds went in support of research into cancer, youth mental health and childhood obesity as well as purchasing specialized medical equipment at the pediatric hospital. The logo contest has taken place for more than 15 years, but this year marks the first time students were given a theme to work with. The superhero theme was selected, and the slogan that now accompanies Creighton’s logo is “Be a superhero for kids.” “Taylor just created this really fun design. He’s a flying bear. He represented being a superhero for CHEO and it was really great,” said Jaqueline Belsito, CHEO Foundation’s vice-president of philanthropy. The contest is open to students in the hospital’s catchment area, from Kingston to western Quebec to

Cornwall. “We reach out to the community and to the youth to submit their designs and their interpretation of what would be fun and simple designs,” Belsito said following the event, which drew Max Keeping and CTV News anchor and telethon co-host Graham Richardson, as well as Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, Coun. Keith Egli, plus school board and CHEO Foundation officials. Creighton’s accomplishment is the first time a student from Sir Robert Borden High School in Nepean has taken top honours in the contest. For her achievement, she was given a Samsung Tablet from Bell, which owns CTV. The company also presented the school with a $1,000 cheque, which is now earmarked for the school’s communications technology classes, in which Creighton crafted her design. The telethon happens June 7, from 7 to 11 p.m. and June 8, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. To order telethon merchandise, call the CHEO Foundation at 613-737-2780 or visit www.cheofoundation.com.

Nepean Fine Arts League getting new gallery New space will feature larger catalogue of artists’ works Jeff Mackey jeff.mackey@metroland.com

Arts - For some, turning 50-years-old might make you wish you could slow down and relax, but the Nepean Fine Arts League seem determined to kick it into high gear post-50 with the launch of an ambitious new art gallery. The league, which has been a staple of the Nepean and Barrhaven art scene for decades, will open a gallery in the Minto Recreation Complex currently under construction at the corner of Cambriean and Greenbank roads. The new space will be called Gallery 50 in honour of the league’s half-centennial anniversary this year. The Minto complex is expected to be completed this fall. The league hopes that if the new gallery is successful the city will allow them to renew the lease after the initial two years. Unlike their current gallery

in the Walter Baker Recreational Complex – which features small samplings of the leagues 108 members – the new gallery will feature many works of a single artist. “We are always trying to find something new for our members so that they can have their art exposed,” said Soroya Silvestri, president league. “Whereas now we only have enough room for one piece of work from the artists up, now we will also be able to see an artist’s whole work,” said Silvestri. This, according to Silvestri, will allow for a more complete viewing experience. “We have members that work in acrylic, mixed media, oils, water colour and photography; there is quite a nice range of different styles and mediums.” ULTRA-REALISM

The first artist to be featured in Gallery 50 will be Erika Farkas, a charcoal

sketch artist known for her “ultra-realism.” “I’m really excited,” said Farkas, who has never had this type of exposure before. “Being part of a gallery means that I have been accepted in the artist community,” Farkas, who calls Barrhaven home, says she looks forward to friends, family and art fans getting a chance to see her work. She said she draws inspiration from faces and photographs. “I love drawing portraits; I get inspired by portraits that have a specific type of character,” said Farkas. “I love to draw old men, because they have these old, weathered faces with beards and just so much character I think I can bring out with my drawings and kind of bring them to life.” The Minto complex will also feature two NHL sized rinks, a full gym, pools, a full gym and arena seating, among other things.

11-week-old Jeacquot (A166324) is ready to hop her way into your heart! This sweet little bunny is looking for her forever home. She is a very social and affectionate rabbit who likes to be around people and would love to snuggle up with you.

It’s no secret that animal welfare is a very different thing for dogs and cats. One of the most striking differences between dogs and cats in our community, and by extension, at the Ottawa Humane Society, is the numbers that enter our care with identification. While just 14 per cent of dogs admitted have either visible identification – a collar and tag – or permanent ID in the form of a microchip, only a sad one per cent of cats are so protected. This seriously inhibits our ability to return a cat to its home. What can you do? If you have brought a cat into your life, please outfit her with a collar and tag. Have her implanted with permanent

Breakfast charity gets a pick-me-up from coffee sales Local businesses team up to raise money for Ottawa School Breakfast Program Jeff Mackey

jeff.mackey@metroland.com

News - Drinking a morning cup of coffee, a sacred ritual for many Ottawa residents, could be doing more good than you think. No, scientists haven’t infused the java with extra vitamins or found a way for it to whiten your teeth, unfortunately, but one some Ottawa businesses have found a way to turn

your caffeine habit into a donation to the Ottawa School Breakfast Program. The program, run by the Ottawa Network for Education, is working with Francesco’s Coffee, Thyme and Again, Creative Catering and Farm Boy to help provide nutritious breakfasts for 12,000 Ottawa children in 154 schools. “We know that breakfast programs make a difference,” said Car-

olyn Hunter, director of the breakfast program. “Research shows that children who eat a nutritious breakfast are more engaged in daily learning, perform better in school and have better self-esteem and health.”  The program says it offers over two million meals a school year at the cost of about one dollar per breakfast. “The demand for our program

continues to grow every year,” said Kathy McKinlay, president & CEO of the Ottawa Network for Education, which also receives provincial and municipal funding. “We’ll be adding 15 new schools – that’s 200 new children to feed every day, by the end of this school year alone.” Francesco’s Community Breakfast Blend will be available at participating vendors over the next six months, including Farm Boy for a limited time. Six dollars from the sale of each

bag of Community Breakfast Blend sold will go directly towards the breakfast program, which needs to raise $500,000 in the community each year to operate. “We’re grateful to the community for rallying together to help us meet this growing need – it shows the depth of care that we have for each other and our children as a city,” said McKinlay. Ottawa Network for Education has been working in the community for the last 24 years to provide breakfasts to children in the region.

A recent study done by The International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism tested the degree that the metabolism was elevated after exercise with a group of individuals that didn’t eat breakfast and a group that did. They tested how many calories were burned, 12 and 24 hours after the aerobic workout. The results showed that the amount the metabolism was elevated after the workout was much greater both 12 and 24 hours after for the group that did eat breakfast. As well, the group that ate breakfast resulted in much more fat being used for energy rather than carbohydrates. To sum it up, pre-workout breakfast has a long-term value for fat loss. By eating breakfast, more fat will be burned during the work, and the metabolism will be elevated to a much greater degree up to 24 hours post workout.

No such thing as family pet on a farm

I

t was a wet and long spring that year. And the winter coldness was yet to fade away to warmer days, leaving a chill in the air that seemed to penetrate our very bones. But it was lambing time, and the joy of welcoming those tiny little bodies of wool out on the farm in Northcote, took away the greyness of the season, and filled my heart with unspeakable joy. Although I never wanted to see the actual births, it wasn’t long after the deliveries that I was in the barn, leaning on the board rail of the lambing pen, watching the mothers nudge their babies, who with wobbly legs were trying, to find firm footing. That year Father was pleased with the number of lambs born in the barn, and with two or three ewes yet to give birth, everything pointed to a bit of relief from the cares of the Depression. There would be

MARY COOK Memories wool and meat to market, easing the constant worries of survival when poverty was all around us. When the very last ewe delivered, two tiny bodies emerged, but alas, one was as black as ink. Father who prided himself on the white wool he took to market, shook his head, and then said, “Don’t think it’s going to make it anyway... it’s just a little runt of a thing, I doubt if it will see the end of the day.” At that very moment I claimed the little black lamb for my very own. I called it Lambie most of the time, but sometimes, called it Blackie. I asked Father if I could look after

it, and from then on, the little lamb and I were inseparable. I fed it milk from a little bottle belonging to one of my dolls, and to my utter joy, not only did it survive that day, and the night, but began to show signs of growing into a healthy and sturdy sheep. I was too young to know that you didn’t raise domestic animals on the farm as pets. They would eventually end up at the market, or in the smoke house. Or, more than likely, I just put the thought out of my mind. Lambie and I would grow old together. And it grew, and only when I was at school or in the house, or in bed, were we apart. It followed me around the barn yard, and while it was still tiny, I carried it in my arms as if it were a little puppy. And I watched in wonder, as Lambie grew. I even hated to go off to school and leave Lambie behind. My brother Emerson thought it

Denture Repairs and just as I was tucking into my bowl of apple crisp, Emerson, who had been unusually quiet all through the meal, asked me if I enjoyed my meal. Which was unusual for Emerson, E-Billing Now because he was usually only interested in his own stomach. I assured him I did. “Well, you just ate Lambie” he said. I looked around the table. No one raised their eyes. Mother busied herself at the stove, and Father reached over and patted my hand, and told me again that we couldn’t raise farm animals as pets. Nausea swept over me like a cold wet blanket, and I ran to the privy like someone possessed. My stomach ached from being so sick and I thought I may not survive. Could anyone die from a broken heart, I wondered? The feeling of utter sadness and helplessness stayed with me long after that fateful night had passed. It was the night I vowed never again in my lifetime would I ever eat a mouthful of lamb.

712 St Lau

was pure nonsense to have a lamb as a pet. “It’s not a lamb anymore,” he said. “It’s a full grown sheep.” As if that made a whit of difference about how I felt about Lambie. It would always be a baby sheep as far as I was concerned. I remember the day everything changed. It was a cold and wet late spring day. I wondered if summer would ever come. We had to wear our rubber rain coats and rubber boots and carry our shoes with our books and lunch to the Northcote school. As we neared the house after school, I could see that Mother even had the lamps lit, and for once I didn’t go to the barn, but stayed in the cozy kitchen. And then it was suppertime, and I still hadn’t gone to the barn to check on Lambie, sure that it would be as warm as toast on a mound of hay with all the other sheep.

EMC news - We’ve all heard the saying, “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is”. But when it comes to investments, how do you know what’s too good to be true? “Investment fraud can be devastating financially, but research also shows that it can affect your emotional and physical well-being, says Tom Hamza, president of the Investor Education Fund (IEF). “Knowing how to recognize a scam can help you protect your savings.” Here are four signs that an investment might be a scam: • You can make a lot of money with no risk. Investments that are considered low risk typically have returns close to current Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) rates. If your expected return is higher than this, you’re taking more risk with your money. • It’s a hot tip or insider information. If the hot tip is false, you will lose your money if you act on it. If the inside information about a public company is true, acting on it would be illegal. Ask yourself why someone would share this information with you, and how they might stand to benefit. • You’re pressured to buy right away. Scammers know that if you take time to check out the details, you probably won’t fall for their scheme. • The individual or the company are not registered to sell invest-

Nepean company charging way onto global high-tech scene Tiny packs help cellphone users power up on the go Jeff Mackey

jeff.mackey@metroland.com

News - Nepean isn’t known worldwide, or even in Ottawa, for its high-tech startups. But Silicon Valley and Kanata beware; Nepean is making headway in the industry. “It is very attractive for us, we need somewhere that is zoned for manufacturing as well as offices and warehouses,” said Nigel Harris, founder and CEO of Powerstick.com. The company, which currently has 25 employees, produces eight different types of portable power chargers for cell phones. These charges range in size and uses, and can also include portable memory, Bluetooth speakers and solar panels. The company is now shipping its chargers worldwide all from their Nepean location, where they design, engineer, manufacture, brand and package their products.

“I would say 80 per cent of our staff are from Barrhaven,” said Harris. “Transportation is no problem and we have a great source of employees, they are all very well qualified.” The company has found much of its success, not in the retail market, but by branding these devices for corporations who wish to get their name out. Clients include the Discovery Channel, Ford, Ebay and the U.S military, to name a few. Since being founded in 2011, Powerstick has been growing. They currently occupy a building on Camelot Drive as well as a second on nearby Bentley Avenue. They could occupy another Nepean building as early as August as expansion continues. “We do intend on staying in this area,” said Harris, who claims Nepean suits his business park needs well. “Everything is done here,” said Harris. “You would be amazed at how many people are doing what behind these walls in terms of putting together this product.” One of Powerstick’s largest customers is the U.S. military

Girl Guides sponsor Portage Over Poverty event Initiative has raised more than $6,000 in past three years Adam Kveton

adam.kveton@metroland.com

News - With a small fleet of cardboard canoes and a scavenger hunt near Parliament Hill, the 2nd Kanata Rangers are raising thousands of dollars to reduce poverty. They are known as those POP girls thanks to their Portage Over Poverty event, which is now in its fourth year. This year’s Portage Over Poverty will be taking place on April 27. The event, organized entirely by Rangers (ages 15 to 17), has teams of four to six people carry decorated cardboard canoes around downtown Ottawa, guided by clues hinting at well known buildings and monuments. The groups then take pictures of the thing they believe the clue was leading them towards as proof of their success. The idea for the photo scavenger hunt came from Rangers who wanted to do something big as a service project, said Ranger leader Carolyn Law. Assist to Sell red top.pdf

“We came up with the idea that we should start some sort of rally,” she said, adding that the canoes seemed a natural fit. “What’s more Guiding than a bunch of people with canoes?” The initiative began in 2011, and since then has raised more than $6,000 through portage team pledges of $100 or more and donations given throughout the day of the event. So far, the money has gone towards funding Girl Guides and Girl Scouts groups in need in various places throughout the world, as well as groups in Ontario and Nunavut who wanted to start a guiding program but didn’t have the funds. By helping grow more Girl Guides and Girl Scouts groups, more girls in need are given skills and participate in service activities like Portage Over Poverty, said Law. “This year the girls have decided to change it a little bit,” she said. “We are going to sponsor our own Guiding scholarship.” The scholarship will be made available to a girl who exemplifies community service and helping others with a focus on trying to improve the lives of girls through the eradication of poverty, said Law. So far, the group has 11 teams registered, meaning they expect the scholarship to be worth at least $1,100. However, the group hopes to

With the event in its fourth year, Pathfinders girls (12 to 14 years old) who have participated in Portage Over Poverty for three years are now in charge. “They are very, very excited to be able to actually run the event,” said Law. “They’ve got ideas about how to make it better.” This year, that includes extra ac-

tivities at four of the clue stations which represent the four world centres of Guiding: Mexico, India, Switzerland and England. Ranger leaders are especially proud of the event, as it has been entirely organized by Rangers since it first started, with the exception of Parliament Hill arrangements which must be made by an adult. With more than $6,000 raised so

far, Law said the Rangers are very proud of the event. With the entire first group of Rangers who started the event having moved on from the three-year Ranger program, Law said it is inspiring to see it continue. “It’s pretty amazing to see it actually take a life of its own.” The event kicks off on Parliament Hill at 11 a.m. on April 27, and continues until 4 p.m.

Aquatopia ready to bloom this summer Brandon Gillet

brandon.gillet@Metroland.com

Community - Carp will soon be home to Ottawa’s first aquatic greenhouse. Mayor Jim Watson and Coun. Eli El-Chantiry attended the building’s soil-turning ceremony with owners and investors on April 15. The aquatic oasis facility, called Aquatopia, will hold its grand opening in July. Aquatopia is a large indoor greenhouse designed to offer year- round access to beautiful tropical horticultural displays as well as special events like luncheon’s or weddings. It will feature aquatic botanical gardens complete with streams, koi ponds, landscapes with fountains, walls made entirely of plant life, and a Lotus Natural Mineral Spa. It will also offer a café featuring a cordon bleu chef, retail garden shops, all under a high-glass ceiling greenhouse. “Aquatopia has been a vision of mine for a long time,” said creator Nicholas Bott. “To create a truly spectacular space that would allow the community to completely immerse itself in the natural beauty of an aquatic greenhouse.” Bott has been planning construction of Aquatopia for three years now with his wife Catherine Neville. Together they own the Pond Clinic in Ottawa which will be moving from Stafford Road West to Aquatopia upon completion. The design is inspired by the Planterra Conservatory in West Bloomfield, Mich. With help from local entrepreneur and founder of the modern day Ottawa Senators, Bruce Firestone and his son Matthew, Bott was able to secure the land and building permits for the location in Carp just off Highway 417 at exit 155. According to Bott the location is perfect because there is lots of water in the area and it features a rural setting while still being close to the city. This is ideal considering the facility will capture a completely natural feeling setting. “We wanted a space a little bit out of the city but still close enough to be convenient,” said Bott. 613 530 7948 ~ paul@naturalpresence.ca With its unique features, Bott out-

lines the purpose of the facility is to, “create a more contemporary European-style garden centre and shopping facility within the region.” According to Melissa Brunet, Aquatopia’s cafe and events manager, the location will host special events like business meetings or luncheons as well as private weddings. These will be catered by their cordon bleu chef, Jimmy LaFreniere, and an award-winning floral team.

Ottawa will have a new indoor conservation destination will feature greenhouses, a private events venue, and a cafe similar to this building. Mayor Jim Watson helped toss the first bit of soil in the air on April 15.

Local midfielder ready for Fury’s first kick Tyler Follett tyler.follett@metroland.com

Sports - Kenny Caceros headed into the Ottawa Fury FC’s preason training camp hoping to make a good impression. The midfielder, a Kanata native, was playing on a trial basis for four weeks with the soccer club. “I came in every day not knowing if it was my last or not,” he said. Caceros was announced as the team’s final signing just before the start of the last home preseason game against his alma mater, Syracuse University on March 29. “It was such a relief, now I can shift my focus from just making the team to actually finding my spot on it.” Growing up, Caceros played soccer in Kanata, and for one year in south Nepean. When he was 14 years old, he joined the Fury in 2003, playing for the club’s Youth Academy. “I loved growing up in Ottawa, it’s been nothing but good times,” he said. Playing for the Fury meant travelling to play games in the United States in the Super Y league, which brought Caceros exposure to scouts. Coaches at Syracuse University liked his game, and offered him an athletic scholarship. “Everything just sort of fell into place,” said Caceros. During his time at Syracuse, he would return home to Ottawa for the

TYLER FOLLETT/METROLAND

Kenny Caceros trains at Keith Harris Stadium at Carleton University. The Ottawa Fury FC will be playing their home games in the spring season at the university, before moving to their new stadium, TD Place, upon completion of construction for the fall season. summers, playing for the club’s development team. Caceros began his professional career in Ottawa with Capital City FC of the Canadian Soccer League. After a year with the team, he made the jump to the North American Soccer League, signing with FC Edmonton, already the Fury’s biggest rivalry in the league. While with Edmonton, he played

in a Canadian Championship game at BC Place against the Vancouver Whitecaps. “It was a fantastic environment, playing 90 minutes at BC Place with 18,000 people,” said Caceros. “It was huge and a really great experience.” Caceros is looking forward to playing his former team in this year’s Canadian Championship. The winner of the yearly tourna-

ment that pits the Canadian professional soccer teams against each other gains automatic entry into the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football Champions League, which means additional games, experience, exposure and revenue. Opening the tournament against Edmonton is sure to be extra motivation for Caceros, who will have bragging rights on the line. FC Edmonton defender Edson Edward and Caceros grew up playing together for the Fury, and even spent a short time as teammates in Edmonton. “He’s one of my best friends I grew up playing against,” said Caceros. “There will definitely be a lot of banter around that game between me and him, there already is.” Caceros is a versatile player, able to play a number of positions, which helps him secure more playing time on the team. Central midfield is his preference, but since joining the professional ranks, Caceros has become an adept defender, playing everything from left and right back to centre back. It means more playing time, and more opportunities to help the team. “At Edmonton I got experience playing right and left back, here I’m getting some experience playing centre back,” he said. “I’m comfortable with the ball, (I’m) technically strong, which maybe helps when playing multiple positions.”

Caceros said his experience playing pro soccer has helped teach him to read the game better. Fury head coach Dos Santos said he wants to take advantage of Caceros’ versatility and use him as both as a defender and a midfielder. “We want to find another position for Kenny because of his characteristics, we feel he can do that well,” said Dos Santos. Caceros’ mindset is that is as long as he’s given opportunities, he will take advantage of them. “I just had to do well in every game and you get your lucky chances,” he said. “Mine have worked out and everything has fallen into place.” The excitement of the inaugural season follows the Fury wherever they go, including Keith Harris Stadium at Carleton University, the temporary home of the team until TD Place’s construction is finished. Making the team only further motivated Caceros to work hard. “It was a big weight off my shoulders,” he said. “When I found out I made it, it was ‘boom!’ Now I can work on getting some minutes, finding my role.” Even though the Fury is an expansion team, expectations are high this season. “It’s great to be a part of history here, seeing the talent we have and coming in seeing everybody grow together,” he said. “I know it’s going to be a success. I’m just excited to be a part of it.”

Relay for Life fundraiser coming to Proulx Berry Farm Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

Community - A group participating in this year’s Relay for Life fundraiser will hold a family fun day to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.  As part of the overnight walk-athon fundraiser, participating teams are asked to raise money. This year, the team named the Elfin Warriors are holding a family fun day at the Proulx Berry Farm at 1865 O’Toole Rd.

The fundraiser, called Outdoor for a Cure, costs $5 per person and takes place on May 4 from 1 to 4 p.m. Free games will include Chateau Routlette, a game with Junkyard Symphony, and there will be tractor rides, face painting and a raffle.  Tickets will be for sale at the door. Cash is required for the barbecue and raffle tables.  “Last year we did coffeehouses and similar things like bake sales,” said team captain Samantha Bellefeuille. “This year we put together a

bigger event.”  She originally started the team after her aunt passed away from breast cancer in 2010; now in the third year of participation the team does the relay for a variety of people they know affected by cancer.  “It keeps growing,” Bellefeuille said. “We do it in honour of everyone who has passed.”  They have raised $550 of their $3,000 fundraising goal so far, and are hoping to reach the goal with Outdoor for a Cure.  The team name changes every

year – last year the team was the Teen Lifesavers, and this year will be the Elfin Warriors, dressing up like Santa’s elves.  Relay for Life is an annual event that has been held at Millennium Park in the past. This year, it will be held at GiseleLalonde high school on June 13 from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. on June 14.  Teams raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Local schools also participate and hold their own Relay for Life events. 

Have Your Best Garden Ever in 2014 It’s no secret that a great garden starts with great soil. Soil is a source of nutrients, air and water essential to the establishment of healthy root systems in plants; but its supply is not infinite. A neglected soil is far less likely to yield the results you are looking for in your perfect garden. Over time your soil can become nutrient deficient, compacted or thin which can make it difficult to grow and lead to poor plant health. A great soil is rich in nutrients, pH balanced and has excellent tilth, allowing for easy air and water flow. Furthermore, a great soil should also be built up enough to allow your plants’ roots plenty of room to grow deep and thus access more water and nutrients. How can you take a tired, dull soil and turn it into a great soil? This can be accomplished using a number of techniques. One of the easiest ways to improve such a soil is by using an amendment or enhancer that is made up in large part of organic matter. Soil amendments are designed to be mixed in with existing soils to bolster areas in need of improvement.

The ideal time to introduce organic matter into your growing areas is in the late Fall. This allows the beneficial microorganisms in your soil more time to become active before gardening season arrives. While in a perfect world we would all earmark some time for soil amending before the frost, for many of us, our flower beds are far from priority number one when the cold weather starts to set in.

mineralize the organic nutrients giving your plants more food for healthy growth. Each component in this mix contributes particles of different sizes and shapes. This results in improved airflow and drainage and reduces the risk of over compaction. The organicbased soil will also provide excellent water retention; something your plants’ roots will really appreciate.

Not to worry though! Even if you missed the window last Fall, you can still get more out of your soil this Spring. There are great products on the market that can make a real difference in the results you see from your garden this year, including Manderley’s Premium Lawn and Garden Soil – which can be conveniently delivered right to your driveway in an easy-to-store cubic yard bag.

Giving your best garden ever the head start it deserves isn’t rocket science. Follow these easy steps for best results: Step one - determine how much soil you need. Keep in mind that you should aim to maintain at least a 6” soil depth (pro tip – top off your growing areas with 2” of soil every Fall to make up for soil loss caused by erosion, etc.). Step two - go get your soil, or better yet, have it delivered without the mess or hassle. Step three - till or turn over the existing soil in your growing areas. Step four - add in your soil mix and ensure that your beds reach the appropriate depth. It’s that easy.

Manderley’s soil mix is a 100% natural product consisting of black earth, organic fertilizer, compost, sand and lime. The organic content in the mix is quite high, which promotes microbial activity in your growing area. Microorganisms will work hard to

Understanding the importance of maintaining a healthy soil is the first step in reaching your garden goals for 2014. By following these four steps and giving your plants proper care throughout the gardening season, you’ll be amazed at the difference.

Takeing on Boston Marathon again Greely resident runs 30 to 36 kilometres every Sunday to train Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Submitted

Jen Frechette is surrounded by family after crossing the finish line at the Boston Marathon in 2011. She ran in the marathon this year on April 22.

Sports - Jen Frechette said if a year goes by without her running a marathon, she starts to get the itch. Frechette, a resident of Greely and a teacher at Jockvale Elementary ran the Boston Marathon on April 22. It was her second time completing the 42-kilometre course. “I am really excited,” she said before she left for the run in Bean Town. “This will be the eighth marathon for me. And when you finish Boston you feel like a hero.” Frechette has been training since January. She said this year’s heavy snowfall and colder temps made the training frustrating. “I run every Sunday and there’s been times where it’s snowing again or freezing again and it’s frustrating, but you know you have to train or you won’t be ready for Boston. It’s a very tough course.” She said she remembers training last year in -39 Celsius. “Everyone thought we looked
