EMC news - At 42 storeys, a tower recently proposed for a site near Little Italy would become the tallest building in Ottawa. Planning for the Claridge Homes development, called Claridge Icon, is in its early stages and is in an area has recently seen other high-rise developments proposed, including the 30-storey SoHo Italia. “Things are changing,” said Claridge president Neil Malholtra of the neighbourhood. “It’s not the first proposal in the area that’s not three-storeys high, and in fact there’s a few of them already.” Malholtra said the building would be a mixed-use project that’s primarily residential, but would include retail on the ground floor as well as two or three floors of office space. “It provides a unique mix with things the city is looking for,” he said. Eric Darwin, president of the Dalhousie Community Association, said the proposed building’s height isn’t so much an issue for him. “The height isn’t what worries me, but how it relates to the street, and what’s the impact of this,” Darwin said. He pointed out that the Carling-Bayview Community Design Plan has been a slow process so far and in the meantime a planner should offer the area a “guiding hand.” See PROPOSED, page 13

The mother and daughter team, who have stayed so strong over the last eight years, will be taking part in the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Dress Red Walk taking place on May 12 – Mother’s Day weekend – on the Arboretum paths. “It’s kind of to thank the people that helped fix my heart,” said Aly. Tina said the pair have taken part in fundraising events to help the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and feel it’s important to give back to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

“We do it every year because it’s one of the ways we give back,” Tina said. “If it wasn’t for fundraising efforts, then there wouldn’t be money for research.” Tina remembers the day eight years ago when her daughter was born. She had rosey cheeks and looked completely healthy, although she said her breathing was a bit different. But when Tina brought her daughter back for weekly checkups, doctors noticed she wasn’t gaining much weight. The family went to CHEO

with her daughter and doctors there found she had a hole in her heart. “I was in shock and I thought I was a horrible mother,” said Tina, who refused to leave the hospital without seeing her daughter after her first surgery. “The procedure is so invasive and they had to stop her heart so they could work on it,” she said. “They said it was going to take a bit of time to see her, but I said I don’t care – I’ll wait.”

Ottawa among host cities for 2015 Women’s World Cup Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa will welcome the world’s top female soccer players in 2014 and 2015 after the sport’s governing body, FIFA, revealed the city as one of six host sites for the Women’s World Cup on May 4. The announcement was made following a girls’ youth friendly soccer match on the front lawn on Parliament Hill.

Minister of State (Sport) Bal Gosal, accompanied by FIFA president Sepp Blatter and Canadian Soccer Association president Dominique Maestracci, announced the sites during a press conference. “We are extremly grateful to FIFA for providing us with the opportunity to host this most important competition,’ Maestracci said. “And we would like to officially welcome the Canadian cities from coast to

In a statement, Mayor Jim Watson said Ottawans were thrilled to host the world’s premier women’s sporting event. “We look forward to welcoming the athletes, spectators and media from across the country and around the world,” he said. “Hosting events like this is a spectacular opportunity to showcase our beautiful capital city to the world while generating significant investment in our local economy.”

Woodroffe HS learns ups, downs of social media kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Susan Murphy wants teenagers to be responsible on social media. That’s why the social media expert and teacher was recently at Woodroffe High School giving a talk to both junior and senior students on how to stay safe online, all while reaping the benefits of social media. “I like to share, because it’s fun,” said Murphy as she opened the talk. “(But) there are basic rules of how you conduct yourselves online.” Just like wearing shin pads and helmets when learning to and riding a bike, Murphy said it’s important to learn protection when you’re on social media websites like Facebook. She went through the importance of privacy settings, reminding students to friend only people they know. “There are some people who friend everyone, but you don’t have to be a friend collector,” Murphy said, adding that it’s important for students to think twice before they share something online. “Assume everything can be seen by everyone,” she said. “Even a private message.” Murphy also told students to think before they share a friend’s post and asked students to think whether or not they would want a future employer or university admissions officer seeing their Facebook page. “If you wouldn’t tell a stranger, then don’t tell Facebook or Twitter,” she said. Social media can be a positive thing because it allows people to share opinions to the whole world, Murphy said, but it’s also important to remember others’ feelings when posting something.

“Conflicts and disagreements can happen, and sometimes feelings can get hurt. That becomes an issue,” said Murphy. She also reminded students that social media might not be the best place to “air their grievances” “It’s easy for people to hide behind their keyboard, but if it’s negative, you’ll be perceived in a certain way,” Murphy said. She also touched upon cyber bullying and how easily that can happen on social media. However social media doesn’t always have to be negative, Murphy said, and there are positive ways to use it. “The web is an amazing place,” she said. “There’s so much you can do, and anyone can share ideas with the world nowadays.” Murphy spoke about blogging and how it can help the blogger express themselves and even help them come out of their shell. Social media also allows a user to show off their creativity, she added, such as photography or music. Using social media can also benefit someone when it comes to school assignments or even looking at potential universities and colleges, Murphy said. “Twitter can be an awesome research tool,” she said, adding it can also help career-wise, connecting users with people working in certain fields. “You guys do this every single day, and it’s natural for you,” Murphy said. “You can learn, connect, and share with anyone. But remember to keep your helmets on, do it safely and do it responsibly. You have an incredible tool at your disposal.”

That’s why the Civic Hospital neighbourhood resident, along with members of the area’s community association, is starting a petition campaign aimed at lowering the speed limit on area roads to 40 kilometres per hour. “We have kids playing on the street and seniors walking their dogs. Their safety is more important than someone trying to get to work early,” said Eady, who will be going door-to-door asking his neighbours to sign the petition which he’ll give to the city. His goal is to get the required 66 per cent of all residents on the affected streets to sign the petition. Those streets include Fairmont Avenue, Kenilworth Street, Bayswater Avenue, Loretta Avenue, Hickory Street, Beech Street and Sherwood Drive. Even though some of the streets go into the Hinton-

burg and Dalhousie communities, Eady said there’s been support from groups in both neighbourhoods. Another main message Eady hopes to get across through the campaign is to remind drivers to drive the way they would in their own neighbourhoods. “I’m no angel. I have a heavy foot when I get on the Queensway,” he said. “But the successful method of enforcing this is through knowledge and education. And it’s up to the neighbourhood to enforce it.” Through the campaign, he hopes drivers will also become more aware of their surroundings. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs said she’s “100 per cent” behind the neighbourhood association’s efforts. “I want to make sure people do adhere to that speed limit,” Hobbs said. “We should be feeling safe in our neighbourhoods. I’m very supportive of it and will help in any way I can.” Hobbs said one of the traffic measures she’d like to see in Kitchissippi is having visual art, for example, to show drivers they’re on a residential street and to drive with extra caution. “I’d really like to start doing different pop-up projects within Kitchissippi,” she said. Eady said it’s time for the

The Civic Hospital Neighbourhood Association is taking on a campaign to lower speed limits on their streets from 50 to 40 kilometres per hour. street to have lower speed limits because of close calls with speeding cars – including a fatality that happened at Sherwood and Carling Avenue a couple years ago. “Sherwood’s a big prob-

lem,” he said. “Drivers need to remember they’re coming into our neighbourhood, into somebody’s backyard.” He added that speeding issues aren’t just a problem for

the Civic Hospital neighbourhood, but also for growing areas like Hintonburg and the Glebe. “We’re all going through growing pains,” Eady said. “(Lowering speed limits)

is one of those classic winwins.” The neighbourhood association will officially launch its speed limit campaign on May 15 at 7 p.m. in the Civic Hospital Amphitheatre.

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, May 10, 2012

er, mental health advocate and former wife of prime minister Pierre Trudeau – spoke at the Royal’s mental health and corrections conference about reaching out to mentally ill female offenders. “I haven’t been incarcerated, but I’ve certainly offended,” Trudeau joked as she opened her talk about her struggle with mental health. She spoke about her depression, reliance on drugs and alcohol and struggle with bipolar disorder. “I stopped dancing, playing, laughing, and you just get

consumed by grey,” Trudeau said. “I had no spark.” Before she visited the Royal for help, she said she often blamed others, like her husband or nannies, for her depression. The highs and lows she went through dealing with bipolar disorder also left her feeling as if it couldn’t be corrected. “I could be the best, the absolute best, or so detestable, so angry rude and mean,” Trudeau said. “I certainly never had peace of mind until I accepted help.” When she found herself being taken to the Royal by the police, she also said she didn’t want to accept the fact that it was because of an untreated

mental illness. “The first night I wouldn’t sleep in the bed,” Trudeau said. “I wouldn’t stay in this prison.” She also said she lost the ability to take care of herself, eat right and live a healthy life. “That’s probably how you feel in prison,” Trudeau said. “I felt like I let down everyone who lived me and knew me. I realized that I was ill, so ill, and I needed to take it on.” She said that with the Royal’s help, she felt like she was given a second chance – something that she feels women especially who are incarcerated should have. Trudeau also said that for women who don’t have a mental illness going into prison, she’s not sure what chances those women have of leading a healthy life afterwards. “Until you walk in someone’s shoes, you don’t know,” Trudeau said. “The prisons are where we’re putting our mentally ill, but we must help them.”

Killing competition, for the good of sport

M

y youngest son is very competitive. I figure it stems from being the younger child and having to fight for parental attention from the first moment of life. And yet, when it comes to organized sports, he’s not interested. In fact, he’s downright rejected every opportunity to play hockey, soccer, baseball, tennis, even swimming lessons. At fiveyears-old, he pretends to be confident and assertive. But deep down, he’s unsure of how he’ll measure up to the other kids. Any mention of true competition sends him running to the hills. His older brother, on the other hand – who’s bigger and naturally better at just about everything – frequently challenges his young sibling to see who can eat the fast-

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse est, read the most books, or practice piano more often in the week. One of my younger son’s favourite expressions is, “it’s not a competition! It’s just for fun!� That’s why I breathed a sigh of relief when I read last week that 56 national sports organizations, under the direction of Sport Canada, are developing new guidelines to put the “fun� back into children’s sports. The focus of the new long-term athlete development (LTAD) program will be to allow the youngest children to spend time honing

skills in sport and recognizing it as an enjoyable, recreational opportunity, in a less competitive way. Of course it didn’t take long for critics to voice opposition to the LTAD program. In a scathing national editorial, CBC business correspondent Amanda Lang, suggested that a fear of competition is typically Canadian. Lang argues that placing children in a competitive environment isn’t just about teaching them to win, but also to lose gracefully. Canadians in business have, for far too long, been

less productive and risk-taking than their U.S. counterparts because they have never learned to fail, says Lang. She misses the point. The LTAD is not designed to kill competition in sport. Quite the opposite, in fact. The ultimate goal of the program is for Canada to eventually churn out more Olympicready athletes. The theory is that by spending the early years developing skills in sport, children will be better prepared to enter a more openly competitive environment when it’s age-appropriate. As the initial Globe and Mail article points out, Sport Canada has found that “the overvaluing of victory often leads coaches to take shortcuts – favouring the best players, dumbing down technique, using fear as a

motivator – that cheats players of the pleasure they might expect from sport.� Anyone who has witnessed an overzealous hockey dad swearing at his kid to the point where he crumbles in tears will see why Sport Canada is totally on-track. Fortunately, that wasn’t my experience with our initiation program in hockey, nor in development soccer. In both cases, my older son, far from being the best player on the team despite often being the tallest, strongest, and most enthusiastic, had a chance to learn to skate, handle a puck, dribble a ball and learn elements of control, without having to worry about being punished for his lack of skill. As a result, he loves playing sports. When he – along with everyone else in the league – received a trophy

and plaque at the end of the first ice hockey season – he felt good about the effort he had put in. And as far as I’m concerned, waking at 6 a.m. for 20 Saturdays in a row to play two hours of hockey deserves a big trophy. (In fact, I’m still waiting for mine). As Lang suggests, we do need to teach our children the value of losing gracefully, in order to help understand how to take risks in the real world which, like it or not, is a meritocracy. But there are many opportunities to do that. At the end of the day, helping them develop athletic skills in a fun and safe atmosphere will ultimately give them the framework within which to eventually learn the lessons of hard knocks. For now, can’t we just let the kids play?

Infrastructure repairs worth inconvenience to residents

I

f you’ve got a child crying in the backseat of the car because he or she has to go to the bathroom only seconds after dressing them in a full snowsuit, there isn’t much room for negotiation. It’s not a fun stop to make, but it’s not up for debate. If they have to go, they have to go. Even if you have to spend several minutes taking off all the layers and more time putting them back on, it is worth it. It’s only for the worse if

the child should, let’s just say, spring a leak. The same logic applies to infrastructure projects such as the new Orleans water main. Those 100,000 people are currently served by one water main, which is of the same vintage as the Barrhaven pipe that broke last year. That community went through a good chunk of the summer under severe water restrictions after the water main, installed in 1976 beneath Woodroffe Avenue,

broke during the winter of 2011. According to the city, it’s going to cost more – $25 million more – than originally estimated to build the new main. But the new $75 million estimated cost would be money the residents will wish the city would have spent if the water main were to ever break. The main serves the growing suburbs of Orleans and Cumberland which is only going to see rising demands

on the water supply in years to come. Engineers have presented reports indicating the pipes are degrading at a rate higher than expected, which means a fix can’t be postponed for much longer. But the slowly ticking time bomb that lies under the streets of east Ottawa isn’t the only water main woe on the city’s horizon. The city has plenty of ancient pipes running under its streets that rupture on a

regular basis during the winter months, causing disruption for homeowners, business owners and drivers alike. Some of these water mains lie underneath streets, such as Elgin Street downtown, that have been resurfaced in recent years. But if tearing up what is essentially a brand new road is what needs to be done to ensure vital infrastructure is secure, it simply needs to be done. These types of projects

aren’t fun to undertake, much like the inconveniences of broken pipes. And they don’t make for “sexy” unveilings by city councillors once the work is done. But water bans and boil water warnings are even less sexy. Hopefully we’ve learned the lessons of last summer and we do what it takes to make sure the city’s water supply is secure. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us all.

A museum for all Ottawa’s quirks CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

here’s been some time now to consider Mayor Jim Watson’s notion of a museum of popular history on Wellington Street and it seems pretty good. Watson wants to call it Canada House and that could be OK, although a bit dull. There is a degree of civic glee at finally having something in that building, which formerly housed the U.S. Embassy and would have housed the portrait gallery until the Conservative government thought differently. But we can let bygones be bygones. The important thing is to put something in the building so it doesn’t get torn down. Because you know what we would get then. Yes: condos deplore a vacuum. Do we need another condo? No, nor do we need another glass office building. So the proposal for a museum of popular history is welcome, although not uncontroversial. Someone has made the suggestion that we already have an appropriate location in the Museum of Civilization just across the river. After all, any collection of significant Canadian artifacts and moments would have to contain some political exhibits and politics is civilization, isn’t it? For my money, the Ottawa location works better, if only because it will preserve a distinctive building and sit nicely in an area that needs more attractions. Now, given the speed at which planning decisions involving several levels of government are taken around here, we probably don’t need to rush too much to offer advice on what should go into the new museum. But still, the opportunity has arisen. The mayor mentioned such possible exhibits as

Céline Dion’s first gold record; a replica of the Canadarm, Bryan Adams’ first guitar, Sidney Crosby’s stick from the gold medal game in the 2010 Olympics, Terry Fox’s T-shirt and Bombardier’s first snowmobile. Those are all worthy suggestions, but they lack important components reflective of life in the nation’s capital. We need something that reflects the excitement of Ottawa life. Ottawa mayors could fill an entire room. There’s the toy gun Charlotte Whitton pulled on the board of control in the ‘50s, for example. And what about the underwear Lorry Greenberg was wearing when he jumped into that fountain in 1975? There is no shortage of other important figures in our city’s history. What about Lenny the Lynx? The Ice Hog? John Turmel? Alanis, before she had a last name. Rare inanimate objects might include an ashtray from L’Hibou. Come to think of it, an ashtray. And don’t forget Nepean’s muchcelebrated balanced budget, Charles Lynch’s harmonica and Frank Clair’s glasses. Speaker’s Corner on Sparks Street could be replicated, ideally without any speakers. Speaking of Sparks Street, rare historical photos would reveal that people once walked on it after 5 p.m. Other photos in the museum would reveal that cows once walked in Barrhaven, Rideau Street was once a bus shelter and Meech Lake was once a lake. Also the old railway station was once a railway station, as opposed to what it is now, namely, an empty railway station. There is so much in our past that is almost too exciting for a museum. That obviously includes the world of sport. For sure, there has to be something representing the several Rough Rider eras — Russ Jackson, Whit Tucker, Vic Washington, Bobby Simpson, Tony Gabriel, Billy Cooper, Wonderful Monds and, while we’re at it, some photos of Horn Chen and the Gliebermans, preferably taken when they were leaving town. Finally, some before-and-after photographs of LeBreton Flats would be nice additions, except for the fact that the after pictures would be identical to the before.

GM Manconi cleans house at OC Transpo Six top managers let go, replaced on interim basis by current employees Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - After only a couple months on the job, the new general manager of OC Transpo is cleaning house. An almost complete management overhaul at OC Transpo was announced in a memo from transit general manager John Manconi to city councillors on April 30. When the dust settled, the only manager left standing in the level just below Manconi is Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit service planning and reporting. He will take on an expanded role bringing both transit planning and reporting on results into one branch. Six other managers received walking papers, with taxpayers on the hook for the $650,000 worth of contract payouts. Manconi said he is “highly sensitive” to the cost and weighed the decisions carefully. He said he assessed the former managers’ understanding of and commitment to the two main values he began espousing when he took over the transit service: customers and employees. “In some cases, those aren’t aligned, or they don’t have the skill sets, or it’s not part of what they believe in

r popula y B k c a B

in terms of leadership roles,” Manconi said. “I put together the team that I believe are needed (and) respected by the organization, have a combination of passion and experience and believe in the focus of customer service and employee engagement.” The new managers have taken over their roles in an “acting” capacity, but their roles could be made permanent if they are the right fit, Manconi said. The new acting managers coming from within OC Transpo include Troy Charter for the transit operations branch, Jim Greer for the transit fleet maintenance branch, James Babe for the transit safety and enforcement branch, Dan Villeneuve for the capital projects and facilities management branch and Jocelyne Begin for the strategic initiatives and business planning branch. David Pepper, formerly of the Ottawa Police Service, will take on a new role at OC Transpo in the business and operational services branch. While no other major structural changes to OC Transpo management are planned, Manconi said, he may be looking at minor tweaks in order to achieve the priorities set out by the transit commission.

Sheep to shed coats for springtime festival Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Sheep at the Canada Agriculture Museum will feel much more comfortable as warm weather approaches after the museum’s annual Sheep Shearing Festival. “It’s quite the event,” said Marie-Sophie Desaulniers, director of visitor experience at the museum. “We shear the sheep because the weather is eventually going to turn nicer, and they’re going to be too hot so we want them to be a bit more comfortable.” The festival, which takes place at the museum from May 19 to 21, will feature a professional sheep shearer as well as a variety of activities for the whole family. “(The professional shearer) takes his sweet time with every single sheep, so you get to see everything,” said Desaulniers, adding that visitors will have a chance to learn how to make wool products after the coats are sheared. “The first time you spin isn’t the most easy,” she said. “But we’ll have real spinners who will be there to show you.” Desaulniers said the weekend festival will also feature sheep herding and will have live demonstrations on the mu-

In addition, visitors will be able to see animals they don’t normally see at the museum, such as alpacas. “Alpaca farmers are taking some of the animals and talking about alpaca farming, so they’ll be here over the weekend to show you what these animals look like,” Desaulniers said. She also said that the festival is an annual success and visitors are often impressed with how much can be done with wool and all the work that goes into making sure sheep are comfortable during the warmer months. “We’re shearing sheep mainly for their own comfort,” Desaulniers said. “That’s a big

As urban development encroaches on previously untamed areas, more human-wildlife conflicts result. People are frequently confronted with many wildlife species, including raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels, skunks, and a variety of birds. These animals have largely managed to adapt well to our presence. Humans, on the other hand, are still mastering this living arrangement. It is important for people to understand the need for effective, lasting, and humane solutions to occasional conflicts with wildlife. If you find an injured wild animal that is bleeding, has a broken limb, is walking in circles or falling over when walking, or another

It seems daunting, but if you work out a solution, you can make sure you never have this problem again. Property owners are responsible for dealing with their wildlife situation humanely and legally.

The birthing season runs from late February to early October, and the babies are helpless when first born and not yet able to leave their nest or den with mom. If you scare the mother away, she may abandon her young. It is critical not to trap young inside, as they will perish, possibly falling between walls and requiring expensive drywall removal and causing very bad odours if they die in inaccessible areas.

Arabella is a spayed female, “Tortie” Domestic Medium hair cat. She is approximately 5 years old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on April 21. This pretty feline loves to cuddle and snuggle with her human companions, but on her own terms. She has the loudest purr – it turns on as soon as someone touches her. She gets along best with owners who can read kitty body language well, as she can sometimes give little nips if she is overstimulated. Beautiful Arabella needs an owner who will take the time to brush her long lovely hair, to keep her looking her best!

Proposed tower would be part of transit corridor From CLARIDGE page 1

The Carling-Bayview Light Rail Transit Corridor Community Design Plan is a document being crafted by the city and a number of stakeholders, including members of the surrounding community, that will eventually serve to help guide development near planned light rail stations at Bayview, Carling and Gladstone. “The question is where is it going to grow and how does it relate to the existing neighbourhoods,” Darwin added. Malholtra said he’s received positive feedback from residents, saying there’s a “silent majority” in Ottawa who want

to see development and intensification done in the area. “Carling in particular is identified for intensification,” he said, adding that the building would sit closer to Carling Avenue where the city wants to see increased growth and intensification. Darwin said he and the community association aren’t against intensification around the proposed LRT corridors, and he feels traffic wouldn’t be a huge issue. “They’re building on top of the O-Train station, and the area is serviced by the 85 and 101 buses. It has excellent transit,” Darwin said,

adding that Carling Avenue is underused. “I don’t think traffic around the building will be

a big problem and if you get pedestrian traffic, merchants like that idea.”

Malholtra said will to work with the Dalhousie Community Association to pick a time to

formally present the idea to residents and hopes to present to the city in the next few weeks.

Jim Keay Donates Vehicle to CN Cycle for CHEO The Keay family of Jim Keay Ford Lincoln are providing another huge assist to CHEO this spring by once again donating a 2012 Ford Fiesta which will be won by a participant in the upcoming CN Cycle for CHEO. The announcement was made during a special event at the Jim Keay’s Orleans dealership on February 23 which featured an autograph session with Ottawa Senators Chris Phillips, Matt Carkner and Peter Regin. It was a busy night with lots of happy

fans including three incredible patient representatives from CHEO. The McDonald’s Dream Team – Micaela Egan (9), Trevor Young (14) and Jeremy Melara (5) – were all smiles as they were presented with autographed sticks by the Keay family and their Senators heroes. The three CHEO cancer patients will be cycling or walking on behalf of all the kids at CHEO in the CN Cycle for CHEO on Sunday, May 6th. The vehicle donation by Jim Keay is his way of encouraging the community to

raise as much money as possible for CHEO and to come out cycle or walk along with these kids at the CN Cycle. Registered participants will earn a ballot to win the 2012 Ford Fiesta for each $250 raised through fundraising for the event and the lucky winner will be announced at the event. The Keay family and the staff at Jim Keay Ford Lincoln encourage you to participate and support your local children’s hospital. For complete details please visit www.cncycle.ca.

Tina still remembers seeing her baby, who was roughly 10 pounds at the time, in an adultsized bed with breathing tubes and wires covering her body. “There was hardly anywhere where you could put your hand,” she said. “We had a long way to go.” However, Tina said Aly progressed quite quickly and was out of the hospital 10 days after her surgery. Four months later, doctors found there was a tear in Aly’s heart and they also noticed her blood pressure was lower. They did a scan and also found a clot in Aly’s leg. “They said she has the biggest clot we’ve ever seen,” Tina remembered. Up until two years ago, Aly was on Asprin to help keep her blood thin. Tina says her daughter now has what’s called a persistent intimal flap, which is a tear in her aorta. However, Tina said Aly is doing great, and she can do everything any other eight-yearold can do. Aly said she hopes to raise about $200 or $300 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation in this year’s walk She said it means a lot to her that she can take part in the five-kilometre walk and help another child who has to go through the same ordeal.

EMC news - In an effort to promote its farmer’s market across the city, a group of Old Ottawa East residents is holding the second annual Main Market Photographic Challenge. The challenge called on shoppers to take photos of the market located on the grounds of Saint Paul University at 223 Main St. between May and October. Opened in May 2010, the market is frequented by residents in the area, but not by neighbouring communities, according to Tanis BrowningShelp, an area resident who is helping to organize the chal-

lenge. She said the goal is to spread the word about this local food fair to residents across the city. “We have noticed that people in Ottawa don’t really realize that there is a farmer’s market in Old Ottawa East,” Browning-Shelp said. “What we thought is, if we could showcase the market, from the whole season, strawberries to pumpkins and used one of those market months to exhibit the pictures it would make people aware that the market exists.” The challenge is open to people of all ages – Browning-Shelp said she had entries from photographers as young as nine last year. Those who participate are required to print and frame their photos so if they are chosen as one of the best photos, the committee can put them on display at the Green Door Restaurant located at 198 Main St. As a way to give back to the community, Browning-Shelp and the other challenge organizers decided to put the photos in a silent auction to raise money for the Springhurst Park Revitalization project. “We wanted to give to something and it came up as one of the options,” Browning-Shelp said. “It is kind of a forgotten park in Old Ottawa East and could really use some refurbishing. We thought it was a lovely fit, a neighbourhood challenge to help raise money for a neighbourhood park.” The location for the exhibition was chosen because it is both situated across the road from the farmer’s market and is a popular stop for people across the city, BrowningShelp said. Browning-Shelp said anyone who is interested in participating in this year’s challenge can contact her for more information at shelp@magma.ca. The exhibition and silent auction will run until May 26. The Main Farmer’s Market opened on May 5 and runs until Oct. 27, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday. All the products are from local producers within 160 kilometres, or 100 miles, of the market. The market also features a number of children’s activities during the day.

EMC entertainment - Hintonburg’s Parkdale Market will be celebrating the arts once again this year with its annual ArtsPark event on May 26. “It’s a family event and there’s something for everybody,” said Patti Normand, an artist who is not only helping to organize the event, but will have her art on display as well. The event, now in its eighth

year, celebrates local artists who all have a Hintonburg connection. “We really want to showcase Hintonburg and celebrate Hintonburg talent,” said Normand. “It’s a great event and a lot of fun.” In addition to the usual displays of visual art and performances for kids and adults, the event will also have a literary works tent where visitors can find books by local authors and even have a meet-and-greet

Ottawa’s #1 Soccer Club

OSU Certified GOld By OntariO SOCCer aSSOCiatiOn Pictured above left to right: OSA President Ron Smale presenting OSU President, Bill Michalopulos with the Gold Club Excellence Award. Ottawa South United (OSU) is honoured to receive the coveted 2012 Gold Level Club Excellence Award by the Ontario Soccer Association; Ontario’s soccer governing body. OSU becomes the very first soccer club in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario to receive the Gold level award, joining a very small group of other clubs in Ontario which also received the gold designation. “Everyone associated with OSU should be very proud of this outstanding achievement,” said Bill Michalopulos, Ottawa South United’s President. “This Gold Award is not just about the quality soccer program we offer, but just as important, also recognizes the strong foundation of quality governance, community involvement and forward thinking upon which the club is built.” The Ontario Soccer Association’s Club Excellence Award is a province-wide recognition program for soccer clubs that are run efficiently and offer a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment for anyone involved in soccer. The program requires Clubs to demonstrate development and execution of long term plans, strategies and policies in 4 key areas: Personnel, Governance, Community Involvement and Technical. Three different levels of Excellence were awarded for 2012: Gold, Silver and Bronze. These designations are not mandated or required by the OSA but are aspirational in nature. “As one of Canada’s leading and largest soccer clubs we must strive to demonstrate leadership in all areas of operating a soccer club” Michalopulos added. “This prestigious award from our highest governing body is another example of Ottawa South United’s long term strategic approach to developing soccer in the community for all players,” said OSU Board member Stephen Campbell. “Since forming in 2003, we have constantly strived to improve club practices to better serve our membership and players while ensuring OSU and its staff and volunteers are a big part of the Ottawa community.” There are approximately 1150 Soccer Clubs in Ontario, serving more than 375,000 outdoor players and 85,000 indoor players each year.

Chance to meet local authors added to festival lineup as it enters eighth year

with some self-publishers. “It’s something that we’ve been wanting to do,” said Normand. Live music at the market will also be part of the festivities and will feature performances by children’s band Hey Buster, as well as the like of Sara Hallman and Micarza Camaro. “It’s a variety of folk to rock,” Normand said, adding that the performances will take place all day. The visual arts exhibit will feature 16 Hintonburgarea artists including Andrea Stokes, Erin Robinson, Joyce Westrop, Angela McGowan,

Normand and a few others. “These artists either live or work in the neighbourhood and have a Hintonburg connection,” said Normand. The event will also feature craft centres which includes 40 exhibitors of hand made goods and foods. The craft centre will feature crafters from across Ottawa. “We decided to open the craft centre to the broader community,” said Normand. “We want that to be really thriving and makes for a lively atmosphere when we have a whole street full of vendors.” The event will also bring back the bike parade that was introduced last year. Normand added that the event’s organizers are still looking for volunteers to help out on that day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For those interested in volunteering, email: info@ hintonburg.com or call 613798-7987.

Emerson pays dearly for his little prank

T

here was nothing that frightened me more than going out to the outhouse alone at

night. This time of year, when a sudden howling wind and rain storm could strike at any minute, my fear was magnified many times over. By the time May rolled

around, Mother had put away the Jerry pots from under the beds and we were expected to go to the outhouse regardless of the time of day or night. Sometimes at night I could persuade my sister Audrey to go with me, but if she was busy with her scrapbooks at the kitchen table, it took a lot of coaxing to budge her

from her chair. Then I was left to shudder and shake as I wended my way through the summer kitchen, then the back shed and out into the black night, around the clump of cedars to the little building which served as our bathroom. My three brothers never bothered to take a light with them when they went out at

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories night, but I wouldn’t even go into the back shed without a lantern, so frightened was I. If it was a bad night, with wind howling through the trees and the shed door rattling like someone was trying to break in, I would take Sport, our old collie dog, with me and make him stay outside the door of the privy. Then I would tear back into the house like someone possessed, never taking a backward glance, in case something evil was on my heels. My brother Emerson delighted in terrifying me and he was always able to pull off some terrible deed without Mother noticing, which was a real talent of his. When I headed for the privy one night, it happened to be one of those nights when the wind howled and a pounding rain was beating against the shed door. I had squirmed in my chair at the kitchen table, until it was impossible to wait any longer. Audrey was talking on the phone on the wall to her friend

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, May 10, 2012

Iva and my three brothers were busy at the things they liked to do at night, playing Snap, whittling, and Emerson drawing. I was doomed to go out alone. Father took the lantern off the bench near the back door and put a match to the wick. I stood at the door leading out into the summer kitchen hoping someone would offer to go with me. No one budged. I couldn’t even find Sport. I was on my own. I went through the summer kitchen and I could hear the rain pounding on the tar-paper roof, and pulled open the shed door which was no easy feat at any time. It never quite fitted right and by the time I got it open, the lantern was flickering and the rain met me full in the face. I ran the few feet behind the cluster of trees like someone possessed, slammed into the privy, bringing the lantern in behind me. It didn’t take me long to finish the job at hand, but I sat there trying to muster up the courage for the return trip

back to the house. Well, I had two choices: face it or spend the night in the privy. I grabbed the lantern and tore towards the shed. I was sure I had left the door open, but it was closed. It opened inward, and I figured one good shove would get me into the safety of the shed. But it wouldn’t budge. There I was standing in the pouring rain, the wind gathering force, locked outside the back shed. I put the lantern on the step, backed up and made a lunge for the door, hitting it with every ounce of strength in my young body. It hit something solid, but there was enough of an opening to let me slide through into the shed. And there lying on the floor, with his hands over his face, was my brother Emerson. “You almost killed me,” he shouted. “Then why were you holding the door?” I wanted to know. There was such a commotion that it brought both Mother and Father out of the kitchen and it was soon obvious to everyone what my brother was up to. Blood was pouring out his nose and already his left eye was swollen where he had taken the full blow of the door. He didn’t have to be told. He washed his face in the basin on the bench at the back door, wiped his nose on the huck towel and headed upstairs for bed. Father shook his head and said, “Will that boy ever learn?” Mother said she doubted it and went back to writing in her diaries at the kitchen table.

Food facts: cinnamon, potato chips and Campbell’s

O

ften when I’m reading about food, I come across interesting bits of information. In this week’s column, I’m passing along some food trivia that I thought you might enjoy. The most popular spices in the United States used to be cinnamon and black pepper. In 1986, more than 11 million kilograms of cinnamon were consumed. In the same year, pepper consumption was more than 34 million kilograms. Shredded wheat cereal was developed by a middle-aged lawyer in the 1890s. Kool-Aid has been around for more than 90 years. Shopping carts were invented by an observant grocer who noticed that his customers stopped buying when the small basket on their arm became too heavy. Once upon a time there were no potato chips. S mechanical potato slicer was invented in the 1920s and by the early 1930s, Frito’s and Lay’s potato chips were introduced and the rest, as they say, is history. An ordinary potato chip is only about 1.5 millimetres thick. Some, however, such as certain brands of ridged chips are twice as thick. There has never been a real

Food ‘n’ Stuff Betty Crocker. She was first introduced as a homemaker by General Mills in 1921, but it wasn’t until 1936 that her face was shown. Since then, her face, hairstyle and clothing have been changed at least seven times. In 1936, she had short, marcel-waved hair. In 1972, her hair was a lightlyteased, more bouffant style and by 1986, she had taken on a blow-dry look. The inventor of peanut butter was an American doctor who, in the 1890s, ground up peanuts as a nutritious, easily digested food for his older patients. More than 300 uses have been discovered for peanuts, including shampoo and shoe polish. There are over 20,000 edible plants in the world, but most of the food we grow comes from only 20 species. Campbell’s, a name synonymous with soup, was founded in 1869. By 1905, it marketed 21 varieties of con-

densed soup, plus pork and beans in a can. The company continued to develop new products over the years. In the period between 1980 and 1986 alone, more than 400 food products were created. In 1920, Charles Ranhofer, former chef of Delmonico’s restaurant, wrote The Epicurean, over 1,000 pages on the “Culinary Art”. It included information on table and wine service, menu suggestions for a variety of restaurant meals, as well as for breakfasts, dancing parties, garden parties, supper buffets and ladies’ luncheons. He stated that a 14-course dinner, served with 10-minute intervals, would take 2 hours and 20 minutes. The meal would start with oysters and soup, then a fish course, a course such as beef tenderloin, an entree of perhaps turkey and pheasant, a roast course with one or two meat roasts, salads, and hot and cold desserts.

City’s Champlain celebration Dr. Neil Reaume answers the call plans beginning to take shape By TRACEY TONG

Laura Mueller

Ottawa and the upper Ottawa valley. Champlain was the first explorer to describe and document Ottawa, including detailing the presence of the Algonquin people in the region. A plan for the celebration also includes partnerships with business improvement areas across Ottawa to develop menu items related to the theme, including dishes served during Champlain’s time. A report approved by the finance and economic development committee on May 1 lists $27,500 worth of funding for those initiatives. The city will also work with community groups to help them find sources of funding if they want to stage Champlain-themed events.

R0011390941_0510

EMC news - Plans are well underway to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Samuel de Champlain at the site that would eventually become the city of Ottawa. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais, who brought the idea for a celebration forward, says the 2013 celebration will serve as a good dress rehearsal for the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017. “The more people who know about Champlain’s importance … I think the better sense of history we’ll all have,” Blais said. “From my perspective we would all be more enriched the more we know about our common history … It’s something I don’t think we do a good job at.” Most of the events associated with the Champlain celebration will focus on youth and educating them about Canadian and Ottawa history through the theme of discovery and exploration, Blais said. Youth visual art and literary competitions are planned, as is a short video contest, all with prize money available. But Blais said he would like to encourage all local community groups and organizations to adopt the Champlain/exploration/discovery theme for any

regular or new events they are planning for 2013. Winterlude would be the biggest target, Blais said, and the city has approached the National Capital Commission about incorporating the theme into its annual winter festivities. A number of community groups have already come onboard to help with the 130 events already in the works, Blais said. Champlain was an explorer and cartographer who helped colonize Acadia and found Quebec City in 1608. Known as the Father of New France, Champlain travelled along the Ottawa River while looking for the great “western sea” and came upon what is today

As a medical oncologist at The Ottawa Hospital, Dr. Neil Reaume has treated hundreds of cancer patients – and all of them have a story to tell. “Every patient is different in their own way, and everyone has a story that’s touching,” said Reaume, who is also the director of the Hospital’s medical oncology training program. But one story he heard during the inaugural Ride the Rideau event in 2010 – The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event in support of cancer research at the Hospital – was particularly unforgettable. While volunteering as a ride guide, he met a young woman from Montreal who was riding “the biggest, clunkiest mountain bike I’d ever seen,” he recalled. “I kept running into her at the rest stations. When we saw her at the end, we congratulated her for making such good time. She admitted that she was an avid rider, but that she was riding her dad’s bike – he had died one year to the day of the ride from colon cancer. She had

Medical oncologist Dr. Neil Reaume plans to participate in the third annual event on Saturday, September 8.

found out about Ride the Rideau the week before, and raised $3,000 in just seven days. My jaw just dropped. I won’t forget that one.” The 42-year-old Reaume, who is a member of the Ottawa Triathlon Club, enjoyed the event so much that he returned to Ride the Rideau last year, the event’s second, but this time as one of the 715 riders. Over two years, the event has raised a total of $2.7 million. “The number of people who are inspired by the event is so eye-opening,” he said.

“It shows that people see value in the cause. After all, cancer is documented as the No. 1 killer in Canada. The Ride growing in leaps and bounds is a reflection of how people are embracing the cause.” While cancer touches most people’s lives, Reaume is especially grateful for the incredible success of the event. Ride the Rideau funds the work that he is involved in as a researcher, which includes international lung and kidney cancer studies, as well as other clinical trials. There are over 70 trials currently taking place at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, with thousands of patients taking part annually. Reaume is thrilled that there are so many people out there who are just as passionate about the fight against cancer as he is. Their enthusiasm, he said, is so inspiring that he will be registering for the third annual event on Saturday, September 8. To join Dr. Reaume in the event, or to sign up to volunteer, visit www.ridetherideau.ca.

City to sell former St. Thomas school Sliver of property to be added to Maki Park Laura Mueller

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, May 10, 2012

EMC news - A plan to turn the former St. Thomas school into a recreation centre for the Crystal Beach community appears to be dead. The city’s finance committee approved a plan to keep a sliver of the former school land to enlarge adjacent Maki Park and sell the rest of the site – including the school building – for development. The city bought the property in 2009 based on a request from the Crystal Beach/Lakeview Community Association. Other community groups operated recreation programs in the school gym until 2006. The city paid about $2 million to buy the property and maintain it vacant for a year, but it would cost an additional $3.9 million to $4.3 million to retrofit the building, the city says. That’s just too expensive for the city, so unless another source of money is found it has to be sold, according to a city report. Councillors on the finance committee received a lengthy presentation on the background of the info in anticipation of a list of delegates who signed up to speak in opposition to the sale on May 1, but no members of the public were present. After the meeting, community association president Ruth Tremblay said she expected an item about the Lansdowne redevelopment to take longer, so she delayed her arrival at the meeting. “We wouldn’t have had a chance getting it past them anyways, without the support of our councillor,” Tremblay said, referring to Bay Ward Coun. Mark Taylor. Last fall, the city presented the community with three options, including two options with household tax levies. Those costs proved widely unpopular with residents, the report states, so the only option left is to sell off most of the property. The property could net between $1.7 million and $2.2 million for the 2.78-acre (1.12-hectare) site. The community association brought forward a plan, but Taylor said he believed it wasn’t realistic. But Tremblay said the city didn’t fully consider the community association’s proposal that involved seeking other funding, including grants and fundraising and supplementing it with an modest annual household levy of around $25 a year per household. The councillor said he and the community association agree on the “end goal” of expanding recreation and fitness facilities in the area. “We agree on that,” he said. “We disagree on how to get there.”

Fan challenges baseball celebrity home run showdown Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC sports - An Ottawa man has challenged former Major League Baseball star Jose Canseco to a home run competition to raise money for a local charity. The Home Run Derby with Canseco will take place on May 12 at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium. The event is to help support Home Runs for Autism, a non-profit organization which raises money for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario autism programs. Home Runs for Autism founder and the derby organizer Evan Malamud described the upcoming event as a family-friendly show with lots of giveaways. “It is going to be a fun time,” Malamud said. “We are going to make a real show out of it.” To prepare for the competition, Malamud said he has been training around the clock. “I am going to make sure I am ready,” Malamud said. “Jose (Canseco) is not going to see me coming.” The idea for the event came from Twitter. Malamud follows Canseco on the social

media network and said Canseco is constantly calling people out, like Mike Tyson, to a challenge of strengths, but no one was challenging him, until Malamud. “I always looked up to him as a kid and I see him challenging all these other tough guys with no real responses and so I challenged him – I called him out,” Malamud said. He said he never really thought it would actually happen, but sure enough Canseco responded. According to the baseball fan, he still did not believe it would actually happen until his cell phone rang while at work. Canseco is coming to Ottawa for free – normally he would charge for an appearance, but told Malamud the charity sounded important and having a soft spot for children, wanted to make sure all the money raised would go to the children. Excited to play baseball with his childhood hero, his true goal is to raise as much money as he can. His oldest son, Jaedyn, was diagnosed as autistic at the age

of two and since his diagnosis he has spent a lot of time at CHEO. “I am really hoping people come out and support the cause,” Malamud said. “Baseball fans will get to see a great baseball star and all in the name for a great program at CHEO.” Following the derby, an allstar game has been organized with a number of professional athletes including Shaun Van Allen, Doug Frobel, Jason York in addition to some local radio personalities. There will also be a silent auction after

the game where a number of sports memorabilia will be up for grabs. The derby starts at 2 p.m. with the all-star game at 3:30 p.m. and the silent auction at 5:30 p.m. All of the proceeds to the charity will go to CHEO’s Autism program. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased online at homerunsforautism.webs.com or at a number of locations: Sears on Innes Road, 417 Suzuki, East Side Mario’s at 526 West Hunt Club Rd, Kelsey’s at 130 Earl Grey Dr. or the Car Club at 300 Moodie Dr.

MacLaren asked to clear record on OSPCA claims Defeated private member’s bill kicked off discussion about animal welfare law EMC news - Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren vows to keep fighting for reforms to animal welfare law in Ontario, even as a government minister charges him with spreading misinformation about the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The issue arose after MacLaren introduced a private member’s bill aimed at fixing what he sees as a conflict of interest at the OSPCA. The bill was defeated at Queen’s Park on March 29. Ted McMeekin, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, called on MacLaren to clear the record after he was reported to have claimed the OSPCA’s conflict of interest arises in part because the non-profit group gets money if it lays charges for animal abuse. That is not the case, however. The municipality would get that revenue, while the society could still bill owners for the care of their animals of it decides the animals must be removed from the property. The thrust of MacLaren’s Bill 47 – the second version of his suggested changes to the Ontario Animal Welfare Act – relied on his argument that the OSPCA is operating both as a “police force” and a “charity.” “It’s a case where fiction became fact,” said Mark Cripps, spokesman for McMeekin. The minister was judicious, saying that perhaps MacLaren was misinformed by his advisors. Still, he agreed that while MacLaren made a positive contribution by opening the issue to discussion, he also muddied the waters with inaccurate information. “There may have been some misunderstandings in what I said,” MacLaren said in response. “I tried never to say anything that wasn’t true. If I did, it was an accident.” MacLaren said he didn’t recall making any statements that money collected from fines goes to the OSPCA, “But if I did, I apologize,” he added. “Somebody might have assumed I said that … . But the issue isn’t fines. The issue is oversight and accountability.” McMeekin credited McLaren’s private member’s bill with creating an opportunity to dis-

cuss animal welfare at Queen’s Park. But had it passed when it was discussed in March, McMeekin said, it would have been “profoundly unhelpful.” “All is not lost,” MacLaren

ers, so McMeekin said he will be bringing together a group of stakeholders, including groups representing farmers, to discuss these issues and come up with an appropriate response.

The agriculture, food and rural affairs spokesman Cripps said the government is looking into possible memorandums of understanding with agricultural groups to allow them to

said. “I think we did a very successful job of raising a problem. The problem at the OSPCA is that there is no oversight or accountability of the enforcement people at the OSPCA – period.” The Animal Welfare Act falls under the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, but the issue is very important to farm-

Cenotaph is expected to be completed by November 11 From front page

“Many of the family names are well know in the West Carleton area and we are hoping relatives could send us photographs and memories that we can include,” Hodge explains. “Some of the names are family names that have been around for a long time. We are hoping relatives can share information, stories and photographs.” Hodge says one local family – the Younghusband family - has already come forward to assist with the project. A member of that family, Sgt. Francis Lloyd Younghusband, is one of those to be recognized on the Cenotaph. The Cenotaph will feature a bronze statue by local artist Ron Cowle. It will reflect the youth of the soldiers, sailors and airmen who were killed in action. The statue will bear the names of 20 people killed in World War I and the names of 16 who were killed in World War II and one from the Vietnam War. It will also serve as a monument to West Carleton residents from wars in Korea and Afghanistan. While not in a position yet to confirm specific construction timelines, Hodge says the project is “progressing well” and is hopeful construction can start in September. He expects to have details regarding the statue’s creation shortly. The goal is to have the Cenotaph, designed to be an-

other memorial to war just like the Carp Memorial Hall built in 1921, ready for Remembrance Day this year. Hodge notes the list of names to date may be incomplete and anyone who may have a name to add is welcome to do so, along with sharing specific information about those already named. Information is sought for the following individuals: WORLD WAR I * Pte. Charles Peter Beedie – Bedfordshire Regiment * Pte. Walter Johnson Bishop – Quebec Regiment * Lance Cpl. Henry Boucher  – Central Ontario Regiment * Pte. Alexander Clanachan – Central Ontario Regiment * Pte. James Leyton Dixon Davis – Eastern Ontario Regiment * Pte. Robert Lorne Falls – Eastern Ontario Regiment * Lieutenant Thomas Harold Fennell – British Columbia Regiment * Pte. Robert Byron Guy – Canadian Machine Gun Corps * Pte. Harry Jones * Sgt. Alexander King – Eastern Ontario Regiment * Lieut. Ewen McLachlin – Canadian Field Artillery * Lieut. Thayer Vincent Milford – Western Ontario Regiment * Pte. Richard Franklin Mooney – 1st Canadian Mounted Rifles * Sgt. Charles Hamnett Pin-

hey – Eastern Ontario Regiment * Lieut. Calvin Potters – Canadian Garrison Artillery * Pte. George Sales – Manitoba Regiment * Major Harold Archibald Scott – 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles (2nd Central Ontario Regiment) * Pte. Ledger Sparks – Canadian Expeditionary Force * Gunner James Wallace Wishart – Canadian Field Artillery * Sgt. Francis Lloyd Younghusband – Manitoba Regiment WORLD WAR II * Cpl. Maxwell James Armitage – RCAF * Flying Officer Royden Garfield Bradley  – RCAF * Able Seaman Robert Ansley Cavanagh – Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve * Cpl.l Allan Bruce Craig  – Royal Canadian Provost Corps * Trooper Frederick Forbes Dalgity – Royal Canadian Dragoons * Flying Officer Howard Elfric Davis – RCAF * Rifleman William John Falls – Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada * Flight Sgt. Adam Kidd Hodgins – RCAF * Flying Officer John Armstrong Johnston – RCAF * Sgt. Mona Ethelyn McBride – Canadian Women’s army Corps

* Flight Sgt. Thomas Cecil Mulligan – RCAF * Warrant Officer John Milton Potter – RCAF * Lieut. Pitman Elwood Scharfe – Royal Canadian Corps of Signals * Sgt. Raymond Reid Riddell – RCAF * Lieut.William Gordon Thomas – Princess Louise

Dragoon Guards * Warrant Officer Donald Alexander Watson – RCAF VIETNAM * Lance Corporal Gordon Patterson Eadie - USMC “These are people who stood up and did something,” Hodge notes of those who will be memorialized on the Cenotaph. “It’s (project) not about

the trees or the back but it is about honouring the individuals and their stories.” Hodge emphasizes the list of names may incomplete and is asking for help in identifying any missing information.  Please contact Hodge at 613-369-5046 x 250 or email stuart@koallo.ca to update the list.

MacLaren asked to clear record on OSPCA claims Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren vows to keep fighting for reforms to animal welfare law in Ontario, even as a government minister charges him with spreading misinformation about the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The issue arose after MacLaren introduced a private member’s bill aimed at fixing what he sees as a conflict of interest at the OSPCA. The bill was defeated at Queen’s Park on March 29. Ted McMeekin, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, called on MacLaren to clear the record after he was reported to have claimed the OSPCA’s conflict of interest arises in part because the non-profit group gets money if it lays charges for animal abuse.

That is not the case, however. The municipality would get that revenue, while the society could still bill owners for the care of their animals of it decides the animals must be removed from the property. The thrust of MacLaren’s Bill 47 – the second version of his suggested changes to the Ontario Animal Welfare Act – relied on his argument that the OSPCA is operating both as a “police force” and a “charity.” “It’s a case where fiction became fact,” said Mark Cripps, spokesman for McMeekin. The minister was judicious, saying that perhaps MacLaren was misinformed by his advisors. Still, he agreed that while MacLaren made a positive contribution by opening the issue to discussion, he also muddied the waters with inaccurate information. “There may have been some misunderstandings in what I said,” MacLaren said in response.

“I tried never to say anything that wasn’t true. If I did, it was an accident.” APOLOGY

MacLaren said he didn’t recall making any statements that money collected from fines goes to the OSPCA, “But if I did, I apologize,” he added. “Somebody might have assumed I said that …. But the issue isn’t fines. The issue is oversight and accountability.” McMeekin credited McLaren’s private member’s bill with creating an opportunity to discuss animal welfare at Queen’s Park. But had it passed when it was discussed in March, McMeekin said, it would have been “profoundly unhelpful.” “All is not lost,” MacLaren said. “I think we did a very successful job of raising a problem. The problem at the OSPCA is

that there is no oversight or accountability of the enforcement people at the OSPCA – period.” The Animal Welfare Act falls under the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, but the issue is very important to farmers, so McMeekin said he will be bringing together a group of stakeholders, including groups representing farmers, to discuss these issues and come up with an appropriate response. The agriculture, food and rural affairs spokesman Cripps said the government is looking into possible memorandums of understanding with agricultural groups to allow them to send an observer if the OSPCA enters a property to investigate allegations of animal mistreatment. The Dairy Farmers of Ontario already have a similar agreement.

Arnprior high school layoffs coming, courses in jeopardy Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news – It’s not a good time to be a teacher looking for work at the secondary level. Declining enrolment can be blamed for the loss of about 12 teacher positions at Arnprior District High School for the 2012-13 term, which will likely mean fewer course choices for students. About 12 teachers at ADHS are affected at this point, say officials.

The school population, which sits at about 790 students now, is expected to drop down about 65 students in the fall, said Dennis Jenkins, Renfrew County District School Board superintendent for the Arnprior area. “Across the school board at the secondary level, there are about 50 people that are surplus,” said Jenkins. Fewer students and teachers means there are courses, in particular the elective courses not required for graduation,

which will not be offered in the fall, said Jenkins. “The smaller your school is, the harder it is to offer more choices,” he said. While it is uncertain exactly what will not be offered in the fall, it is likely that courses such as cosmetology will be slashed as things are realigned, said Jenkins. Along with declining enrolment, there is another factor affecting the situation, says Jenkins - leaves and retirements.

“The last two years there were a very small number of retirements,” said Jenkins. “In the past we had 15 or 20 retirements each year. Arnprior, for example, now has more teachers who are younger and more subject to the bumping process.” Jenkins also noted there is quite a difference in situations at the elementary and secondary levels. In part, extending the kindergarten programs has absorbed some of the fall-out from declining enrolment at

the elementary level, which is happening, but more slowly. Jenkins agreed it is not an easy time for those affected. “We know it’s difficult,” he said. “We’re hoping most will be stay around, but we know some will not.” MOOD GLUM

Jeffrey Barber, unit president for the Renfrew County branch of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, says Arnprior and the county are not alone. The mood for teachers is pretty glum and depressed, he said. “It’s not a good time to be in this role because there aren’t a lot of job opportunities,” said Barber. “There are people who have been working for our board for 10 years who have received notices they’d be affected. “We’re facing declining enrollment. There are a number of schools across the province

in similar situations,” he added. “We have a lot of teachers who do not have jobs at the end of this year.” The union continues to go through the process of looking at seniority and qualifications. “There’s a lot of redundancy in our board,” said Barber. Letters have gone out to the teachers potentially affected, he said. “We did go through a round of bumping last Monday,” said Barber. “People have a very clear idea whether they will be affected or not. I think they are well prepared.” The fact that the board doesn’t qualify for additional funding available for rural and remote schools just further adds to the burden, he said. “It’s unfortunate, we’re facing declining enrollment and our funding for our board is not what I’d like it to be,” said Barber. “I don’t feel that we’re adequately funded.”

The grades 1 to 6 students at St. Michael’s Catholic School in Corkery staged a rousing version of The Wizard of Oz on Monday afternoon. Ty Chavin, top photo, didn’t have any butterflies going into the gymnasium. Friends Julia Valenti, left, and Mya Gibb in the top right photo are ready to sing their hearts out in the musical. There were a few Dorothy’s in the production, but it was Emily Marginson who got the show off to a fantastic start. Ready to be a monkey and entertain the parents and others in the audience is Ashley Innes. Is she a good witch or bad? Isabelle Callahan will say ‘good’ - of course.
