An afternoon blaze on May 10 displaced several residents of a Preston Street apartment building. The two-alarm fire, which originated in 57 Preston St., was first reported just after 2 p.m. That unit, plus its balcony, received extensive damage, while two neighbouring units also received some damage. No injuries were reported, though up to eight people were displaced by the fire. The cause of the fire was yet to been determined as of press time.

Mayor frowns on subsidizing developer’s soil cleanup Laura Mueller

News - The city will look for ways to reduce the number of buses detoured onto Scott and Albert streets during lightrail construction set to begin next year The new willingness to consider other options comes after months of lobbying by frustrated residents in Mechanicsville, Hintonburg and Dalhousie, who say that two years of buses passing by every 20 seconds is unacceptable. The city and its light-rail constructor, the Rideau Transit Group, intend to move 2,500 buses a day onto the Scott-Albert corridor while the Transitway is converted to light rail from 2015 to 2016. About half a dozen people delivered impassioned pleas to the transportation committee on May 7, saying the plan will not only create safety and liveability concerns for neigh-

bours, it would also create longer commute times for transit users. They suggested splitting up the impact by moving some of the buses onto the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway instead, or even Carling Avenue. Thanks to a motion put forward on behalf of Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, the transportation committee will ask OC Transpo to look at those options and present the results of their review at upcoming open houses tentatively scheduled for June 9 and 10. At a recent Dalhousie Community Association annual general meeting, National Capital Commission CEO Mark Kristmanson said the city and Rideau Transit Group hadn’t approached the NCC about detouring buses onto its parkway, but Kristmanson would be open to that conversation.

News - A move from Coun. Katherine Hobbs to ask the city to pay 100 per cent of the cost to clean up contaminated soil at

an “important” development site was met with cool reception at city hall. The Kitchissippi councillor said an exception for Mizrahi developments is warranted because otherwise, a lot at the “gateway”

corner of Wellington Street and Island Park Drive might never be developed. Hobbs eventually withdrew the idea after it got a beating during a May 6 meeting of the finance and economic development committee. The city already has a policy to pay 50 per cent of the cost to clean up contaminated soil, which must be completed be-

fore developments can proceed. The policy is a way to provide an incentive for builders to clean up contamination such as gasoline or chemicals in the soil and make use of vacant land, much of which is inside the Greenbelt. The grant is offered in the form of tax relief on the property. See SITE, page 29

News - The former Westboro United Church on Churchill Avenue was a hive of activity on May 8, but it wasn’t parishioners filling the rooms and hallways. Members of Ottawa’s festivals scene joined local dignitaries in officially opening Festival House, the RBC Bluesfest-sponsored community arts hub, which has taken residence in the former church. The grand opening also served as the official kickoff of the festival season in Ottawa – a city that has established a growing reputation for festivals of all kinds. RBC Bluesfest executive director Mark Monahan, who and also heads the Ottawa Folk Festival, said it was great to see the Festival House project come together after three years of hard work. “The project really was started by the Westboro United Church,” said Monahan, recognizing the key players in the endeavor. “There’s two really key things to this building. We’ve started a school in the basement – we call it the Bluesfest School of Music and Art. Our partner in that project … is the Dovercourt Community Centre. (Executive director) John Rapp and his staff have been extremely important.” Festival House, Monahan said, will “become a hub for the festival community in this city – we’re very proud of that.” The Bluesfest and Folkfest offices

will be located in the upstairs area, while a number of other festivals – including parent body Ottawa Festivals – will be located in the downstairs area. Following a building tour, Mayor Jim Watson called the “innovative” facility a “remarkable, one-of-a-kind facility” that brought public, private and community partners together for a common goal. “It really is quite remarkable – you’ve got a partnership with the Dovercourt Community Centre … you’re working with the festival network that we’re so proud of and some of the smaller festivals that don’t have the resources or money or really the need for office space can come and use this space in a cooperative fashion,” said Watson. “This is really one of the landmarks of Ottawa – that we’ve become the city of festivals, with over 80 different festivals from all parts of the world. Whether it’s music, the arts, dance or poutine, the sky’s the limit.” Monahan and new Ottawa Festivals executive director Carole Anne Piccinin took a moment to present the 2014 ScotiaMcLeod Volunteer of the Year Award to Wendy Bardach, who has spent the last 16 years organizing the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival. “There isn’t a festival that goes on in Ottawa that doesn’t rely on volunteers,” said Bardach. “If you’ve been to a festival, you’ve met one. On behalf of all the volunteers, thank you.” Information on the many festivals happening in and around Ottawa can be found at ottawafestivals.ca

Premier draws battle lines on first day of election trail Wynne helps Ottawa South MPP John Fraser launch campaign Erin McCracken

erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - Though she didn’t put on a pair of pink boxing gloves she was presented with until after her speech, Premier Kathleen Wynne came out swinging during her first stop in Ottawa on the first day on the provincial election campaign trail. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Ontario New Democratic Party leader Andrea Horwath and Ontario Progressive Conservative Party leader Tim Hudak were her primary targets on May 7, when she helped Liberal MPP John Fraser launch his campaign for re-election at his Ottawa-South riding headquarters at 1652 Bank St. Under the Liberals’ jobs and growth plan, Wynne said she will invest in skills and training, transit, and infrastructure to build and renovate schools and hospitals, roads and bridges. “And Stephen Harper doesn’t like it, but we will create our own provincial pension plan to ensure that Ontario workers can enjoy a secure retirement,” Wynne said, before dozens of supporters, including Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli, Ottawa-Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi, Ottawa-Vanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur and Marie-France Lalonde, Liberal candidate for Ottawa-Orléans. “I think it’s what the people of Ontario deserve after they have worked hard, to be able to expect a decent retirement security,” Wynne said. The premier and Fraser both applauded former premier and longtime Ottawa-South MPP Dalton McGuinty, who did not attend the campaign launch. “It’s a riding with such a rich history of representatives that we can all be proud of, especially Dalton McGuinty,” Wynne said. “We owe him a debt of gratitude.” Fraser, who won the riding in a byelection 10 months ago, said he is extremely proud of “what we accom-

plished together,” including expansions to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and Ottawa Hospital, improved transit, stronger schools and mental health and addiction programs. “By any objective measure we are light years ahead of where we were,” Fraser said. Wynne said Ontario needs a leader who is prepared to go “toe to toe” with the prime minister on issues such as economic development in northern Ontario and being short-changed on federal transfer payments. “The people of Ontario need to ask themselves, will Tim Hudak stand up for Ontario if it means having to stand up to Stephen Harper?” said Wynne, adding that Hudak can’t be trusted to confront the prime minister when

A vote on June 12 for Fraser and Wynne would mean a vote for “jobs and growth, so it’s easier for people to buy a house and pay the bills and save for post-secondary education,” she said, warning Ontarians that a vote for Hudak would result in cutbacks that “would lead to a low-wage, low-

growth future.” The premier also blasted the New Democratic Party for not having a job plan. “They have no answer to the big questions about economic recovery. They are literally making it up,” Wynne said. Calling Wynne’s plan “fair, practi-

cal and balanced,” Fraser said it would lead to “jobs and a strong economy, a world-class health-care system that will be there when you need it, investing in infrastructure so we can keep our economy and our families moving, and support for our seniors – the very people who built this community.”

Residents cast critical eye on Winston Square public art Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Four proposals were shortlisted by the city, but only one public art installation will grace a new public space being built in Westboro. The Winston Place Plaza will see green walls, open space and seating areas added to where the dead end of Winston Avenue North meets the Richmond Road sidewalk, but it will also feature a new LED light fixture designed to illuminate and stimulate. A May 7 open house at the Westboro Seniors Centre brought residents into contact with the creators of four proposals for that functional art installation. Submissions to the city’s public art program were designed with exact criteria for weight and size in mind. The winner of competition will paid using development charges collected from projects in the ward. Each installation will cast the same amount of light from a 100-watt LED bulb. Karen Phillips Curran and David Ivens proposed an out-

door chandelier to cast a glow on the seating area, while the team of Caleb Rempel and Cara Tierney proposed an aluminum bird’s nest to encapsulate the light. The latter duo brought in one of the lights that will be used for the installation. LED lights use less electricity than typical sodium vapour lamps and last longer. Adrian Gollner and Joanna Swim submitted a powdercoated, red-painted aluminum work that incorporates the shapes of local wildlife, flora and geographical aspects of the Kitchissippi area. Andrew O’Malley, who submitted a winning public art proposal for the entrance to the Bronson Centre, also answered the call, submitting a design with a celestial theme. O’Malley’s work incorporates a frosted globe surrounded by metallic rings that will reflect and refract light as a viewer moves closer to it. Feedback from residents was collected and will be analyzed by a panel of judges chosen by the public art program.

Steph Willems/Metroland

The four public art proposals shortlisted for consideration for the future Winston Square Plaza in Westboro were judged at a May 7 open house. The winner, which will be announced shortly, will be

required to have their project underway in a hurry, as the

fixture is expected to be in place when construction on

the plaza finished in October of this year.

12 Stirling proposal deferred at committee Community meeting scheduled for May 22 Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - The city’s planning committee voted on May 13 to defer a rezoning application for the redevelopment of the Odawa Native Friendship Centre site. The plan, which involves the conversion of the existing schoolhouse at 12 Stirling Ave. to a condo development including a 17-storey residential tower, will be decided by committee on May 27. A community meeting arranged by the Hintonburg Community Association will discuss the proposal on May 22. A previous proposal that contained a 19-storey tower was put on hold last year as the community put the finishing touches on the Scott Street Community Development Plan. The appearance of the latest proposal caught the community off-guard, and the community association rushed to hold it off. “We quickly reached the councilor (Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs) and asked if she could move to defer it,” said association president Matt Whitehead. “She was able

to make that happen.” Whitehead said previous talks with the development’s proponent ended with them saying “they were going back to the drawing board.” Apparently, a clerical error resulted in the community association not being notified of the new application, and thus they were unable to submit comments. The Scott Street CDP lists sites along the roadway east of Parkdale as maxing out at six storeys, though the 12 Stirling site would likely handle more. The city has past stated that a height of nine storeys would be appropriate for the site, given its size. Whitehead said the community was waiting for the proponents of 12 Stirling to submit in order to build that site’s zoning into the CDP. “We’re wonder in why – if they already own the land – didn’t they get (the zoning) built into the CDP/” said Whitehead. The May 22 community meeting, to be held at the Hintonburg Community Centre from 6 to 8 p.m. will bring together city staff and the developer to discuss the proposal.

War Museum historian earns award for Cold War book steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Ask any Canadian over a certain age what’s the best course of action to take after they “see the flash,” and they’ll likely reply “duck and cover.” This less-than-ideal defence against atomic weapons was drilled into the minds of schoolchildren across Canada and the U.S. during the height of the Cold War, as governments encouraged citizens to take precautions against nuclear attack. Andrew Burtch, a Canadian War Museum historian specializing in post-Second World War Canada, describes in detail the many precautions taken to counter the looming threat in his 2012 book Give Me Shelter: The Failure of Canada’s Cold War Civil Defence. His look at the uneven, delayed and often ignored civil defence plans in Cold War Canada earned him the C.P. Stacey Award, an honour presented by the Canadian Committee for the History of the Second World War and the Canadian Commission for Military History. The book had roots in the research Burtch performed while preparing his doctoral dissertation. Beginning during the Korean War and peaking in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the threat of a Soviet atomic attack was something parents and their children lived with each day. “It’s largely forgotten now, but it was fun to go back and research the ways (the threat) manifested in society,” said Burtch. Travelling civil defence

roadshows loaned from the U.S. trundled through Canadian cities in the early 1950s, teaching parents how to protect themselves and their homes in the case of a nuclear attack, while children were taught in school (usually via a reel-toreel film clip) to duck under their desk to protect from flying debris in the event of an attack. Under many defence plans, members of community and service groups, the Red Cross, St. John’s Ambulance and even the Boy Scouts were to be mobilized in the aftermath of a nuclear strike. Governments of the day have a responsibility to counter new threats to their people, said Burtch, however, like in previous “hot” wars, the response in the Cold War wasn’t particularly effective. In Canada, much of the planning information distributed through film and pamphlets put the onus on the individual to survive and take on leadership roles in the radioactive aftermath of an attack. City-wide evacuation plans, communal and backyard bomb shelters were also thought up as means of defence, but most didn’t see the light of day as personal and municipal finances, political squabbling and the lull of peacetime life intervened. “When times are good, you try not to think about the world catching fire and fighting off your neighbours,” said Burtch, adding that the proposed measures, while often flimsy, “were the best thing available for a bad situation.” Receptiveness within Canada to civil defence was also wildly uneven. Though Ontario and Quebec were the most like-

The City of Ottawa refused to sign on to a civil defence plan, though civil servants working here did have one of their own. Toronto wouldn’t foot the $400 bill for the travelling civil defence roadshow. “Alberta was very active,” said Burtch, describing how Calgary’s “Operation Lifesaver” evacuation drill became something of a civic holiday. Saskatchewan residents didn’t bother much with civil defence, he added, given that most assumed Russian missiles would simply fly over the province in search of more high-pofile targets. Preparations for nuclear war over the years had lulls and peaks, explained Burtch. The initial flurry of activity in the early 1950s fell off until the early 1960s, when tensions with East Germany and then the Cuban Missile Crisis had North America waiting breathlessly on the eve of a war that didn’t materialize. Tensions and preparation rose again in the early 1980s, with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and talk of space-based weapons systems. Televised films such as The

after a meteor exploded with the force of an atomic bomb (complete with a tell-tale blinding flash) over their city. Duck-and-cover theory has roots in pre-nuclear Canada, said Burtch. During the 1917 Halifax Explosion, hundreds of children were injured by flying glass as the shock wave from the exploding freighter hit the windows of their

schools. This lesson wasn’t lost on those tasked with drawing up civil defence plans in later years. Burthc’s book is available through Chapters and Amazon, but copies can also be picked up at the War Museum and – appropriately – the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War museum.

Day After (1983) and Threads (1984) were a product of this newly tense era, but had roots in the late 1950s, when the advent of thermonuclear bombs with destructive power in the multi-megaton range had residents worrying about the grim prospect of surviving the strike, rather than being killed in one. Films (and books) like On The Beach (1959) prompted a fatalist air amongst some people who would rather not find themselves alive in the doomed aftermath of a fullscale nuclear exchange. “Surviving was seen as a nightmare scenario,” explained Burtch. Psychology plays a big role in the public’s reaction to civil defence threats of all types, said Burtch, who questions how many people are actually prepared for a major, non-wartime disaster in Canada in spite of years of government notices about the need for individual three-day survival plans. Disaster planning can come in handy even if the expected calamity doesn’t occur. Media reports from last year mentioned a Russian schoolteacher who spontaneously enacted a duck-and-cover drill, thus preventing injury to her students

It’s your social responsibility

S

ha-la-la-la-la-la/Live for today And don’t worry/‘bout tomorrow Hey, hey, hey If you’re old enough to remember that 1967 song by The Grassroots, and lived by its ideals, there’s a good chance that you’re now neck deep in your own personal retirement crisis. For a host of reasons, the majority of baby boomers failed to plan adequately for their retirement. Just to make ends meet, many seniors are now working well past age 65. Across Canada, the median senior exists on far less than $30,000 a year. It’s even more troubling that the next generation of Ontarians can’t get past today’s financial obligations to set a little aside for a secure tomorrow. They’re paying off student loans or paying for child care or looking after their parents. There simply is no extra money for a nest egg. Because so many more of us are living well past 65, retirement in Ontario is about to explode into a full-scale financial crisis. Almost 1.3 million workers have no workplace pension. Almost all of Ontario’s new jobs are being created by small businesses that don’t offer a pension plan for employees. At the same time, many Ontarians just aren’t saving for retirement. Experts say you need 50-70

per cent of your pre-retirement income to maintain your standard of living – but many Ontarians can’t or won’t meet this target. The bigger cause for concern is that we’re sticking our heads in the sand and pretending it isn’t happening. Employers and workers must be encouraged to take responsibility for their financial futures. Government and business agree that fixing Ontario’s pension problem is a priority. But to do that, the system has to change. The Canadian Association of Retired Persons is calling on Ontario to make workplace pension plans mandatory. We couldn’t agree more. The business community overwhelmingly favours the introduction of pooled registered pension plans to Ontario workplaces and we think that’s the right way to go. Both employers and employees contribute to the plans, that are managed by independent financial professionals. They should follow a working Ontarian from job to job. Inadequate financial preparedness should be socially taboo. We need our young people to buy into the idea of retirement planning. They say that in life, the only sure things are death and taxes. But Ontarians should be able to count on a healthy pension after a lifetime of working hard and contributing to society.

Bidding a fond farewell to an Ottawa institution

L

et’s embarrass Jay Stone completely and call him an Ottawa institution. That’s my excuse for writing about a longtime friend, retiring after more than 40 years in daily newspapers. To clarify: “Ottawa institution� doesn’t mean bad Ottawa institution, like the Senate or Lenny the Lynx; it means good Ottawa institution, like beavertails or the Mayfair Theatre. Jay has been writing about movies in the Citizen for the last 20 years. His stuff has been consistently smart, funny and entertaining and readers are going to miss it when he retires at the end of this month. Ottawa is full of people who, although they may never have met Jay personally, want to see what he says about a movie before they decide to go see it. In any city, a critic has influence. A good review can bring people out to see a movie or buy a book; a bad review can sink a restaurant or a play. Good critics are aware of their power and use it wisely. Bad ones just want to make a reputation. Good critics have a love for their subject, be it food, literature, drama or film. Bad critics have a love for themselves.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town It goes without saying that Jay Stone is a good critic and has been ever since he started writing about movies full-time in 1994. I think that what distinguishes his writing, and makes him the best in the country, is that he has never lost his enthusiasm for movies. Most critics inevitably tire of the thing they write about. They get so that they have read too many books, seen too many movies. Everything bores them. They become obsessed with technique – with camera angles, set design, whatever – and they lose the ability to react emotionally to a moving story, to laugh at a funny line. Reading their stuff, you can almost see them dragging themselves out of bed in the morning, dreading the prospect of seeing another damn movie.

You don’t get that from Jay, never have. I can bet you that when you read his last review in a couple of weeks it will be fresh, it will be respectful without being gushy and it will show a real effort to come to grips with what the filmmaker was trying to do. (Aside to Jay: don’t let me down on this.) Having a respect for movies should not be confused with loving all movies uncritically. Stone devotees always look forward to his one-star reviews, where he unleashes the full range of his considerable comic scorn on a movie that truly deserves it. But, interestingly, there are not many of those, just as there are not many five-star reviews – just a handful over the years. He reserves the onestars for the truly awful and the five-stars for the truly great. The great majority of movies are neither. By the way, early on Jay didn’t use stars, thinking that they oversimplified matters. The star system was imposed on him from on high, to his discomfort, but it at least gives his readers the opportunity to savour the fives and the ones. For Jay, respecting a movie means that you approach it on its own terms. If it’s a summer big-explosion movie, you don’t dismiss it because you don’t like big explosions.

Instead you try to figure out whether it’s a good explosion movie or not. Does it succeed in what it’s trying to do? The same goes for rom-coms or Iranian art films. Famously, Jay gave four stars to the 1994 movie, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, because, in his mind, it succeeded in what it was trying to do, whatever that was. Less famously, he has, on rare occasions, aimed genuine anger at movies he considers exploitive and dishonest. He has served the movies well and, more important, his readers. What the heck: five stars.

Want to help the environment? Stop protesting pipelines

I

f you’ve been following the headlines lately, you may know that there has been a lot of protest against TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline. The Council of Canadians spent several weeks in April touring northern communities and holding public forums under the catchy title “Our risk, their reward.” The idea is that Canadians are meant to risk the environment for oil that will ultimately end up being shipped abroad. The Council of Canadians, however, is leading us astray. Every time their employees send a text message on their cell phones or travel by bus to a Northern Ontario community, they are undermining their own cause. Using computers, printing posters, wearing clothing, purchasing office furniture – these are all things that are manufactured abroad. And guess what? Canada can and should provide that oil to make the goods as long we Canadians continue to buy them. I recently interviewed Grant Smith, chief executive officer at Braemar Adjusting in Calgary, for a national magazine article on the

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse subject. He points out that, with 95 billion barrels of oil consumed globally each day, the world has a growing and insatiable thirst for hydrocarbons. “Everybody wants the oil and gas community to provide the hydrocarbons and the stuff we need, and people aren’t really reducing consumption of those products, no matter how green they are,” he told me. “Yet our infrastructure is getting older and we’re using green argument to block the construction of new pipelines.” It’s generally agreed within the industry, itself, that pipelines are the safest means of transporting oil and gas. Could they be safer? Yes. The technology exists to make pipelines out of stainless steel that would be less

prone to corrosion. The technology exists to double wrap pipelines so if there is a leak, it wouldn’t be devastating. But we would all, as consumers, have to be willing to pay for that at the gas pump, when we purchase food, when we buy all the things that have become necessary to our every day existence. Do you want to see your grocery bill quadruple? Are you willing to pay $150 per litre to fuel your car? Can you stomach higher bus fares and more expensive technology? In the meantime, Canada’s pipeline infrastructure is aging. Pipelines take a long time to construct. The longer we delay the construction of new pipelines, the more potential for incidents and not just in pipelines. Oil and gas companies will get their product to market as long

Dragon’s Den star to headline Entrepreneur Week Arlene Dickinson to share knowledge, experiences at event in Kanata Julia Le

News - A “dragon� is spreading her wings and landing in Ottawa June 9 to impart some lessons learned about making it as an entrepreneur in today’s economy. Arlene Dickinson, best known for her role as one of five venture capitalists on CBC’s Dragon’s Den series, will be the headline speaker at the Breakfast Seminar Series, presented by Metroland Media Group. It takes place at the Brookstreet Hotel, 525 Legget Dr, Kanata from 7 to 9:30 a.m. Dickinson’s visit is among 10 stops she’ll make across Ontario as part of Entrepre-

neur Week, which runs from June 2-13. Joining Dickinson for this special event as the entrepreneur guest speaker is Jeff York, CEO of Farm Boy. York became the president and chief executive of Farm Boy in 2009. Prior to that, he spent 20 years as the president and chief operating officer of Giant Tiger Stores Ltd. Entrepreneurship Week celebrates the successes of local entrepreneurs as a community while encouraging others to be innovative to help fuel and drive the local economy. “The event is a celebration of Entrepreneurship Week and to showcase our community entrepreneurs and their contributions to our local economy. It is also a great opportunity to get a look into the success factors behind two amazing entrepreneurs - Arlene Dickinson and Jeff York,� said Metroland East general manager Peter O’Leary. “It is very important to take the time and recognize

look deep within yourself to figure out where you’re helping the company, figure out where you’re not helping the company and surround yourself with people who are better than you are,� she said. “That’s an old saying, but it’s a very true one.� She added that entrepreneurs need to recognize that their biggest enemy tends to be themselves.

The 57-year-old, who travels back and forth between her Calgary and Toronto homes, said the notion of balance, is something of a fallacy. “Balance is very personal. It’s not about 50/50 and equal weight on personal and professional, it’s about doing what makes you happy,� she said, adding that being an entrepreneur is a lifestyle choice, not a career choice. “I’d say that happiness is a function of being able to live and be who you are.�

Her success and leadership has been recognized with multiple honours and awards including: Canada’s Most Powerful Women Top 100, the Pinnacle Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence, as well as PROFIT and Chatelaine’s TOP 100 Women Business Owners. She is also chief executive of YouInc.com, a company she founded in 2012 that is dedicated to serving and investing in entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial lifestyle. “A lot of what I’ve learned is through the school of hard knocks,� said Dickinson, who never received a university education, but has learned about business by taking risks and figuring out how to recover from the failure and mistakes she’s made along the way.

“Self-doubt can play a huge role in your ability to succeed, so if you believe in something you have to stick to it. You have to be resilient,� said Dickinson, noting that to be successful as an entrepreneur you also have to navigate the roadblocks along the way and accept that you’ll face a lot of rejection. Dickinson is a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal recipient, an honourary captain of the Royal Canadian Navy and is the recipient of honourary degrees from Mount Saint Vincent University, Saint Mary’s University and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. “Having Arlene Dickinson partner with us provides our readers and customers the opportunity to experience her live or read about her on our website our community newspapers,� said O’Leary. “Our brand and goal is to be connected to our communities and Arlene allows us to showcase some of the people and entrepreneurs of Ottawa by lending her time, name, and brand. Her commitment to the time in Ottawa also places a spotlight on those entrepreneurs in our community that deserve so many thanks for what they do.� Tickets to the breakfast seminar series cost $90 plus HST.

Afghanistan artifacts find way to War Museum End of Canada’s role in Afghan conflict prompts new displays Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Visitors to the Canadian War Museum can expect to see new artifacts from Canada’s mission in Afghanistan, the end of which was marked by last week’s National Day of Honour.

Starting May 9, six objects that symbolize the sacrifice of those who took part in the Afghan campaign will be on prominent display at the museum. In the museum’s main lobby will be a canvas titled Next of Kin and a wood sculpture called Highway of

Heroes, both of which speak to the bond between family and those serving overseas. Next of Kin – created at Camp Mirage, Canada’s staging base in the United Arab Emirates – contains the signatures of family members of military personnel who died during the campaign.

R0012701080_0515

Looking for Foster Parents!

We are a therapeutic foster care agency with 35 years experience providing foster care placements to meet the emergency, short-term, and long-term needs of children 0–18 years of age. We are currently looking for foster parents for children 6–18 years of age and also foster parents for Inuit children, and youth with medical needs. If you are interested in making a difference in a child’s life please contact Lindsay at 613-263-5085 or info@optionsyouth.com.

The signatures occurred as family members entered the base for a “next of kin” visit. Highway of Heroes, a woodcarving by Bowmanville resident Jan Oegema, is a depiction of the section of Highway 401 between Toronto and CFB Trenton, which carried fallen servicemen between the airbase and coroner’s office. During the conflict, which claimed 158 Canadian lives, thousands of residents regularly lined up by the side of the highway and on overpasses as the convoys carrying the bodies of those soldiers made their way between the two points. “The Next of Kin canvas and Highway of Heroes recognize not only the service of (Canadian Armed Forces) personnel, but also the special burden borne by loved ones back home,” said James Whitham, the museum’s director general, in a media release. The museum will also host four pieces of nose art, painted onto serving CH-146

The Canadian War Museum has added new artifacts relating to the Afghanistan campaign that are currently on display. The displays were opened on May 9, the same day as the National Day of Honour for those who served in the conflict. Griffon helicopters by Cpl. Richard Aucoin in 2011. Each of the four works – on loan by the Department of National Defence – is unique in colour, style and intention.

Griffon helicopters served increasingly busy roles in Afghanistan, often being used as armed escorts for the larger, troop-carrying Chinook helicopters.

MINIMIZE THE FINAL INCOME TAX LIABILITY OF YOUR ESTATE proper planning, a deceased’s “ Without income tax liability could be significant Did you know that approximately 80% of Canadians will donate to a charity during their lifetime? However, it is estimated that less than 10% will include a gift to a registered charity in their Will.

This is one of a series of several articles intended to build awareness about the impact of legacy giving to Forever CHEO. In addition to the spiritual and community benefits of gifting to a registered charity, naming a registered charity as a beneficiary in your Will can also be an effective way to minimize the final income tax liability

of an estate. Without proper planning, a deceased’s income tax liability could be significant. Various income inclusions at the time of death, such as deemed capital gains and the fair market value of an RRSP can result in a higher than expected estate income tax liability given Canada’s graduated income tax rates.

Gifts to Forever CHEO can include cash legacies, bequests of real or personal property, securities, life insurance proceeds and all or part of the residue of the estate. All of these gifts can potentially generate tax credits available to reduce an estate’s income tax liability. Additionally, the gifting of certain types of capital property to Forever CHEO under the terms of a Will may avoid capital gains but still maximize the tax credits available from such a gift.

If you are interested in finding out about how you can leave a CHEO legacy, please contact Megan Doyle Ray at

Soldiers wave from atop a LAV III vehicle during a military parade on Wellington Street on May 9, part of the ceremonies surrounding the National Day of Honour for those who served in the Afghanistan conflict. The parade ended on Parliament Hill, where the baton from the Soldier On Afghanistan Relay (containing the last Canadian flag lowered) was presented to Gov.-Gen. David Johnston. A flypast of all the types of aircraft used by Canada in the 12-year campaign was part of the ceremony.

Community - People wanting to peek inside some of Ottawa’s closedoff embassies can hop on a bicycle and explore some sites on two wheels next month. For the first time, Ottawa Cycling Tours is offering a bicycle tour of embassies that are welcoming visitors as part of the 2014 edition of Doors Open, taking place June 7 and 8. The city-organized event, now in its 13th year, will make 130 public and private buildings in Ottawa open for viewing for free. In addition to offering a bike tour between embassies, Ottawa Cycling Tours is planning to put together self-guided tour maps to provide participants with pre-made Doors Open itineraries. Andrea Recht, owner of Ottawa Cycling Tours, said the maps should be available at RentABike, located at 2 Rideau St. where it meets Colonel By Drive. “I’ve always participated in Doors Open,” Recht said. “(On a bike) you’re outside the whole time and you can see how things are connected.” The bike tour and the entire Doors Open event will take place rain or shine. People can register for the bike tour by visiting ottawacyclingtours. com. There will be a yet-to-be-determined fee for the tour, as well as $32 for a bike rental if required. Recht is planning to partner with RentABike to offer bicycle rentals for people who don’t have their own. Participants who would rather travel by more than two wheels can hop on an OC Transpo shuttle bus to travel between sites.

New to the list of locations this year is OC Transpo’s integrated operations centre; the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year; the Ottawa Jewish Archives and the Embassy of Japan. Other locations include: government buildings, private businesses, artists’ studios and places of worship, all in both modern and heritage styles of architecture. Two popular destinations last year – the United States Embassy and the city traffic operations centre – are back on the list. Participants can tour historical relics at museums like the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum or tour scientific marvels like Canadian Space Services and CanmetENERGY, Natural Resources Canada’s clean-energy facility. A full list of participating buildings is available at ottawa.ca, or you can pick up a Doors Open event guide at any Bridgehead and at most Subway locations. The guides will also be distributed in the Ottawa Citizen and Le Droit on May 31. At city hall, a new set of interactive displays will provide information about city services. That event will take place on Saturday, June 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Last year, 75,000 participants viewed 124 sites. Since 2002, when the event began, more than 700,000 people have come out to discover interesting and prestigious local buildings.

Community benefits: too little, too late? Councillors, residents ‘disappointed’ by Section 37 payments Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Two years of the city collecting “community benefit” payments from developers has left many disappointed. For local residents and for some of the councillors who represent them, the money coming in isn’t enough. Most developers aren’t exactly keen on the extra fee – or more specifically, how it is calculated. Even city planners are disappointed by how few of the rezonings the city approved since the spring of 2012 have qualified for the extra fee, which can be put towards small local infrastructure projects in the hopes of making an area more “livable” when hundreds of new people make their homes in new buildings – usually condo towers. Only six developments qualified for the extra payments since Ottawa enacted a policy to allow it to take advantage of Section 37 of the Ontario Planning Act, which provides a way for municipalities to collect

extra money from developers in exchange for more lenient zoning so they can construct larger, denser buildings. The planning department had promised a full-blown review of the policy a year after it went into effect. Two years later, there still weren’t enough qualifying developments to do a review or make changes, so the department issued a memo instead. “There simply aren’t enough examples to come to a conclusion on what works,” said Michael Mizzi, chief of development review for the city. The review has been rescheduled until the beginning of 2015. For Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, it’s the money that’s not enough, even though her ward is home to the largest community benefits deal so far: $3.43 million for a planned Claridge development at 1040 Somerset St. W. One big problem in her ward is that residents think every development will qualify and result in community benefits. That’s not the case – the calculation is complicated, but

only rezonings that result in a relatively large uptick in density and therefore value would qualify. Still, Hobbs said the payments are “like getting money for nothing.” “It’s a bit of a gift,” she said. It can put a dent in the long list of projects that residents are asking for in Kitchissippi ward: pedestrian and cycling improvements, more green spaces or even a fund for community housing. But it’s only a small dent, Hobbs said. Adding a water fountain at Byron Linear Park alone will cost approximately $15,000, Hobbs said. With price tags like that, the community benefit money doesn’t go too far, Hobbs said. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko had a different take on why the payments weren’t enough. He said he was surprised to learn that the average amount of money the city gets through Section 37 agreements is 28 per cent of the uplift in value from the rezoning. “We certainly had higher hopes,” said Chernushenko, calling the percentage “disap-

pointing.” But Mizzi said between 20 and 30 per cent of the uplift value is a standard amount to expect for a community benefit payment. City planners don’t have a specific target to meet, but that range is generally where the negotiations with developers land, he said. “Success isn’t measure on your cash contribution alone.” For instance, in the case of a Domicile building at 514-532 Rochester St., city planners negotiated to include threebedroom units in the building – something the city wants, since it allows families to live in the urban area in a range of housing styles and costs. Including those units meant Domicile paid less for the community benefit payment, Mizzi said, but those units are of huge value to the city and the community. “That ‘draw down’ is an integral part (of) achieving the broader goals of the city,” Mizzi said. “That is worth something.” Linda Hoad, a community association member and activist from Hintonburg, said the negotiations allow too much flexibility to reduce the devel-

oper’s payments. “It’s hazy to me and wide enough to drive a bus through in terms of how it’s calculated,” Hoad said. Neil Malhotra of Claridge Homes says he sees the new fee as a cost of doing business. In fact, he said his company sees it as a positive thing because it helps Claridge contribute to improving the downtown and making the areas around its buildings attractive for potential homebuyers. Martin Chenier of Brigil had a different view. He said the fee is another way the city is squeezing developers. From rising development charges to the need to provide parkland or open space, those additional costs like community benefits payments end up trickling down to homebuyers, he said. Section 37 has been a learning process in Ottawa, Malhotra said, but it could work better if everyone involved saw it as a basis for consensus building, rather than a consolation prize for communities that have opposed a development. Chenier was less enthusiastic. He said the discussions with city planners are not negotiations at all.

“We’re just basically told that’s what it’s going to be. There is no way for us to say is that the right value,” he said. “They should make it a basic fee and not call it a negotiation.” Before any of those negotiations begin, the ward councillor is supposed to consult with residents on what they’d like to see as community benefits if and when any Section 37 money comes down the pipes. From her experience and discussions at the Federation of Citizens Associations, a local gathering of community group representatives, the consultations with councillors aren’t necessarily happening, Hoad said. She said the councillors should have to provide a list back to the community of what they’ve heard and determined are the priorities. In Kitchissippi, Hobbs has decided the best way to do that is rely on the improvements and benefits listed in the six community design plans drafted for the ward. Those plans had broad consultation and represent the best consensus on what the community wants, Hobbs said. How do you feel about how Section 37 benefits have been negotiated in your neighbourhood?

Major school bus company quits city Three new operators set to replace Stock Transportation erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - Despite the imminent departure of one of Ottawa’s largest school bus companies from the city, thousands of English public and Catholic school students won’t be stranded come September, says the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority. Stock Transportation, which has operated in the region for at least 23 years, and the authority couldn’t come to an agreement late last month on a second oneyear extension of a five-year contract. The authority manages contracts on behalf of school boards, which, in turn, receive funding from Ontario’s Ministry of Education. The authority offered a twoper-cent increase for English public school busing services and no increase for Catholic transportation. But Stock asked for a nearly seven-per-cent increase for the upcoming school year to “attract and retain the best possible professional school bus drivers,” said Molly Hart, Chicago-based spokeswoman for National Express Corporation, which owns Stock Transportation. The authority refused, and the bus company served its 280 Ottawa staff, including support staff, safety and maintenance personnel and 265 drivers, on May 5 with layoff notices effective June 30. “Minimum wage in Ontario is increasing by seven per cent alone and the gap between minimum wage and the wage paid to our Ottawa drivers has been shrinking steadily over the past several years,” Hart said. “And our drivers would have received a substantial increase had we been able to reach an agreement.” The increase would also have helped offset the costs of purchasing, operating, maintaining and fuelling the buses, Hart said, noting a 51-per-cent hike in gas prices in Canada since 2009, and a 25-per-cent spike in the purchase price of new buses in the last 10 years. “The operating environment in Ottawa has become too challenging due to the severe disconnect between what operators require to deliver service and what the Ottawa Student Transportation Association can pay for these services,” Hart said, adding that though Stock is clos-

ing up shop in Ottawa in June, the company is not shutting the door completely on future business opportunities in the city. After Stock declined the offer, the transportation authority signed contracts with three new operators which will take over Stock’s 193 routes. Direct Transportation Logistics will provide wheelchair buses, Roxborough Bus Lines will transport students in Osgoode and Metcalfe, and take on routes in Orléans, while Campeau Bus Lines will take on 111 routes in central and eastern Ottawa and Barrhaven. The authority has also resigned First Student Canada to provide school buses on another 350 routes. Stock’s departure shouldn’t worry parents of children on the affected routes, said Vicky Kyriaco, general manager of the transportation authority. “We are working well with Stock and the operators to transition as many drivers from Stock’s employ to the new operators, so in September we expect that the same driver will be operating the same route,” she

said. “It’ll just be a different name on the bus.” The authority’s initial contract extension offer was for two per cent (for one year) and that reflects the (Ontario government’s) grant for student needs,” said Kyriaco. That increase was available from the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, though “they’re still in a deficit situation,” she said, adding there was no increase available through the Ottawa Catholic School Board. “So we have some financial limitations that we have to operate within,” said Kyriaco, who declined to discuss contract details, citing confidentiality issues. But the association representing smaller, independent school bus operators says the Ministry of Education is creating instability in the industry, the reason why Stock should be applauded for walking away from the contract offer, and “finally saying, as a company, (that) we cannot operate in this market, these rates will not allow us to run a safe operation,” said Karen

Cameron, executive director of the Independent School Bus Operators Association, which has members in Ottawa. Smaller companies don’t have the ability to refuse the contracts. “These operators, if they walk away, they’ve committed suicide,” Cameron said. “They have one customer typically and it means their mortgage. The Ministry of Education has absolutely destabilized this industry to the point where it’s almost not even viable.” For the coming school year, the Ministry of Education is providing “a projected transportation allocation of $883.5 million that includes a two-per-cent increase to help boards manage increased costs,” said ministry spokesperson Gary Wheeler. “This formula is used for all 72 boards across the province.” But the fragility in the industry is about more than the bottom line, because it is jeopardizing student safety, Cameron said. “Drivers are the single most important safety feature on the bus and so what you want is long-standing drivers who know their kids, know their routes and know the procedures,” she said.

Ascorbic acid demonstrates anti-inflammatory effects and is used as complementary support for asthma and other respiratory symptoms.

2. Alkalizing: Lemons contain both citric and ascorbic acid which easily metabolize in the body allowing the mineral content of lemons to help alkalize the blood.

3. Digestion: Lemon juice stimulates hydrochloric acid in the stomach further aiding digestion. Vitamin C status has been associated with reduced risk of peptic ulcers caused by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori.

4. Clear Skin: Vitamin C combats free radical damage, which is responsible for many symptoms of aging.

5. Promote Healing: Ascorbic acid is an essential nutrient in the maintenance of healthy bones, connective tissue, and cartilage.

Lemon Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash Pasta Preparation Time: 10 min | Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 cup 1 medium spaghetti squash ¼ cup vegetable stock 1 tsp minced garlic, divided. 1 cup celery, diced 3 ½ cups fresh tomatoes diced 1 cup yellow tomato or pepper

½ cup Kalamata olives 1 tsp lemon juice, fresh 2 tsp lemon zest 3 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Slice spaghetti squash in half from top to bottom. Remove seeds and place squash cut side down on a parchment lined sheet pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until squash is able to pull away from sides in strands. In the meantime, in a large sauté pan, add the vegetable stock. Add the garlic and celery and sauté for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer cooking for 10 minutes. Next add the remaining tomato or yellow pepper, Kalamata olives, lemon juice and lemon zest. Once the squash is ready, pull all the “spaghetti” flesh from the skin and place the cooked squash on a serving platter. Top with tomato mixture, garnish with parsley and season with sea salt and pepper.

By not eating small frequent meal throughout the day, your body goes into starvation mode. When this happens your body assumes that it won’t be getting food again for a while, so instead of burning the food you eat, it will store it as fat. You can prevent your body from going into this mode by eating within an hour of waking up and then every 3 hours after that.

Nighttime safety for women a concern: residents Continued from page 1

Cheryl Parrott of the Hintonburg Community Association said the willingness to finally listen to residents gave her some hope, but she wasn’t convinced the city or Rideau Transit Group would actually make any changes. “They’re there, but are they actually listening? Are they taking into consideration what people have said?” Parrott asked. “I still have concerns that they haven’t, seeing the safety report that came forward from them.” The long-awaited pedestrian safety audit commissioned by Rideau Transit Group was a disappointment to Parrott. A light multi-use pathway from Bayview Road to Smirle Avenue is planned as an alternate route for cyclists and pedestrians, but Parrott said the path will end up being a tunnel surrounded by hoarding boards to protect it from surrounding construction. “They’re planning on putting it through a very isolated area, there are no eyes on it,” she said. “When we went through doing a safety audit with Women’s Initiatives for Safer Environments ... Everybody came to the same

conclusion right away: this just can’t happen. It’s totally unsafe.” The community suggested in February that the path would be more accessible and safer if it was built on the south side of the corridor, between Scott Street and the Tom Brown Arena. The transportation committee voted to have staff look at whether that option was feasible, but staff indicated there might be an additional cost above and beyond the $2.1-billion light-rail contract. The committee will get an update and be asked to make a decision if the south-side pathway would cost more. Parrott said she suspects the pathway tweak might be the only improvement to the bus detours and pedestrian safety plan. “Whether there will be any change on June 9 and 10, I’m not totally convinced there will be,” she said. “The battle will continue.” Rideau Transit Group is also considering enlarging the buffer zone between the road and

sidewalk and adding a fence or barrier. The transportation committee also voted to take the additional bus lanes on Scott and Albert out of service as soon as light rail starts running. After the transit system switches over, Scott Street is planned to be rebuilt as a “complete street” with room for bike lanes and wider sidewalks.

Association traffic committee chairman Brian Mitchell said he was very pleased with the timeline, but also hoped there could be more safe crossings added all along the Lansdowne Park corridor, to help distribute the cyclist and pedestrian traffic. Specifically, Mitchell said would like to see an additional crossing at Queen Elizabeth Drive, specifically one at the Bank Street Bridge and Queen Elizabeth Place. “We need a safe crossing at the south end of Lansdowne,” Mitchell said. According to the study, a crossing at that location was warranted, indicating options of creating a single lane roundabout or a splitter island on the south side of the road, eliminating the southbound right turn lane. Currently, in addition to this crossing, the NCC said the next steps would be to create another safe crossing on the other side of the canal at Colonel By and Clegg – the fourth designated priority crossing from the study. The study suggested either a pedestrian refuge island or a signalized crossing. The NCC is working on the design for this crossing, however Kehoe said there is no funding available yet to construct the Clegg crossing. Kehoe said comments from residents, concerning Clegg, could help point out the necessity for safety on either side of the canal. Both the Fifth Avenue and the future Clegg Street crossing are being designed to connect to a future proposed footbridge over the canal at this location. The cost of the proposed footbridge is pegged at $17.5 million and currently the city has no plans to fund it’s portion of the project until 2020 or 2021.The NCC said it will move forward with the planned improvements at both road crossings ahead of any plans to build a canal footbridge.

HAVING A CAUSE

Korir attempted to pay back his missionary friend the money it cost to send him to high school. The missionary refused, and asked instead that Korir to help another child who wanted to go to school. Korir began by helping one child, and now, through the foundation he started, he is helping hundreds attend school. Having the goal of helping kids go to school has improved his running, he said. “If you run without a purpose, without a cause, you are chasing the wind, and you can’t catch the wind,” he told students at Bell High School. That idea was a big concept

ADAM KVETON/METROLAND

Champion runner and member of the Kenyan parliament Wesley Korir, third from left, leads Bell High School students in a run after speaking to them about becoming a long-distance runner on May 7. Korir will be competing in the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon on May 25. for Kurlicki’s students, she said. The school’s long-distance running program is essentially preparation for a 10-kilometre race exam. The school also teaches a course on exercise science studying what can have major influences on a person who becomes a major athlete. “A lot of the kids do both programs, so you’ve got these really academic kids who are also training and have realized what they are capable of doing, and the contribution that they can make into their communities through racing,” she said. “It sort of opens their eyes to what can be done not just for themselves, but for the community as a whole. So it’s just a very important moment for them, I think, to have him

Sports - Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon organizers are already predicting the fastest marathon time ever on Canadian soil, with the event attracting the “best field ever” of elite runners. One athlete expected to make an attempt at the record, runner and member of the Kenyan parliament Wesley Korir, stopped off at Bell High School in Bells Corners on May 7 to speak with students enrolled in a unique long-distance running program and take them for a brief run about their track. A 2012 Boston Marathon winner, Korir has a personal best time of two hours six minutes and 14 seconds. During his visit, Korir shared the story of how he got into running, which had nothing to do with winning marathons at the time, said Bell High School teacher Karen Kurlicki who introduced him. Korir did not start off as an aspiring athlete, she said. He ran because he had to. “When I grew up, running was part of me,” Korir told students. “I had to run to do everything,” he said. Korir’s family was poor. He grew up without shoes, and often went without food. But he ran everywhere: to school and back home, to fetch food or water or do other errands for his family every day. “I didn’t know that was preparing me for my future life and passion,” he said. But running wasn’t his only necessity, he said. He felt education was as well. However, in Kenya, high

school costs $350 a year, and amount his family couldn’t afford. “That’s nothing when you are here (in Canada),” he said, but in Kenya, the average daily wage is about $1. Korir snuck into class for the first couple weeks, but was eventually found out and forced to leave. That didn’t stop him, he said. Korir would sit outside classroom windows, trying to gain any knowledge he could, until a missionary teaching at the school saw him and decided to help. Using his wages from teaching, the missionary paid for Korir’s schooling. He graduated high school and went to college in the U.S. through track scholarships, andgraduated with a degree in biology. So, it was the missionary that had helped him afford high school, and his running that had helped afford college that served as his inspiration for the Kenyan Kids Foundation.

Residents weight two plans for Glebe Beer Store block Hotel, condos could be added to planned two-storey retail strip Community - Glebe residents gathered on May 8 to weigh in on a redevelopment plan for the Beer Store and Mister Muffler sites on Bank Street near Lansdowne Park. Bordered by Bank, Monk Street and Thornton Avenue, the land in question is nearly an acre in size, presenting a large development opportunity for builder Canderel Group of Companies. Located at the southern edge of The Glebe’s bustling retail strip, the 90metre long property is envisioned to become a two-storey retail development with the possibility of a boutique hotel or condominium rising above it. Representatives from Canderel and FoTenn Consultants were on hand to present the two tentative proposals – one of just the two storeys, the other with four floors of residential rising above. Miguel Tremblay of FoTenn stressed that this was a preliminary meeting, as no

development application has been submitted to the city. Tremblay describes the site as “unique� for the area, in that the Beer Store’s parking lot provides an access to the rear of the site for either deliveries or a continued storefront that wraps around the development. Current zoning for the bulk of the site allows 15 metres of height (about five storeys), while the northernmost section at the corner of Bank and Thornton is zoned R4T, allowing about four storeys. Under the proposed plan, that corner would see a two-storey retail establishment with a purposely different appearance than the rest of the strip. Planners envision a triangular second-floor outdoor restaurant patio placed at the corner of the building. Tremblay said there would be zero parking spots allotted for this part of the development, with patrons of those businesses asked to find street parking. The main site – which the Beer Store intends to occupy part of -

would have 68 underground parking spaces accessed from Holmwood Avenue. The number of spaces would rise if a residential component is added. Should the plan to build condos or a hotel go ahead, Tremblay said the applicant would likely have to file a minor variance for height along with a zoning bylaw amendment and site plan control application. Residents expressed concern about the impact of the development to residents living on Monk. The southern portion of the site would see the new building abutting Monk, where the Beer Store parking lot is now. One resident expressed concern about the loss of greenery on the street if the trees bordering Monk are cut down. She stated the project would blend in better if a setback was created that incorporated those trees. No promises were made about the trees, but Canderel and FoTenn did state that any residential component above

The question of whether or not

the development will contains four storeys of condos or hotel will have to wait until a rezoning application is submitted. At such a time, formal public consultations with city staff present will be held.

the two storeys of retail would be oriented towards Bank and away from Monk. As well, the portion of retail space backing onto Monk would have its own distinct façade, rather than being a brick wall. How the retailers in the new development would receive shipments was called into question. Monk residents were concerned about trucks using their street to deliver goods, though Tremblay said a city bylaw prevents delivery trucks from accessing the site via Monk. While residents were generally OK with having a continuation of the retail strip on Bank, the contents of that retail were cause for concern. Several residents expressed their desire not to see a largeformat grocery store or a Shoppers Drug Mart contained in the development, not just for the competition to local stores, but also for the amount of activity it would generate. “There are two businesses in the Glebe we treasure – Home Hardware and the Metro,â€? stated one resident. “This kind of thing really makes people angry.

New survey released for Lowertown residents Focus on safety, security in neighbourhood Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A new online survey being conducted by the Lowertown Community Association is asking residents whether they feel safe in their neighbourhood. The survey, launched on May 3, is an initiative aimed at helping track concerns and issues in the community. Norman Moyer, the asso-

ciation’s safety and security committee chairman, said the survey would be a way to understand how both residents and visitors to the neighbourhood feel about the Byward Market and Lowertown East. The last time the association conducted an online survey was in the lead-up to the city’s visioning exercise for the Byward Market. At that time, Moyer said, the association as a few questions on

safety and crime, but it was not the focus. This time it is. “This is to get a better response of whether people feel safe in the market,” he said. The committee was prompted to create the new survey, Moyer said, because of several factors: • The debate about a potential supervised injection site in the area and how the community feels about it. • The recent death of a pedestrian at the corner of Rideau and Waller streets reminded the community of safety

Community organizations take the stage during Doors Open Ottawa 2014 By Jenna Guilbeault

The Bethany Hope Centre, the Youville Centre and Waupoos Family Farm are three local nonprofit organizations with two things in common. First, they are community organizations that focus on helping various at-risk groups in the Ottawa area. Second, they will be opening their doors to the public this year during Ottawa’s annual architectural exploration event, Doors Open Ottawa (DOO), taking place June 7 and 8 across the city. The Youville Centre, at 150 Mann Avenue in Sandy Hill, has been around for 27 years. It strives to help young mothers by providing a quality education, good nutrition, encouragement and support to both mother and child. “Our mandate is to motivate, educate and nurture,” says Heather Heagney, the centre’s Communication and Community Developer. To date, the centre has helped approximately 800 young mothers, serving 48 women at a time and seeing an annual graduating class that averages 20. But the Youville Centre doesn’t only serve mothers; it also offers weekly support groups and individual counselling for young fathers. This is the organization’s second year participating in Doors Open. It’s within close walking distance of other event participants such as the Embassy of Algeria, Diane A. Gagné Financial Services and Laurier House National Historic Site. Heagney says, “We want to increase our visibility in the Ottawa community so we’re inviting people to come and see the work that we’re doing.” ........ At its new location at 820 Woodroffe Avenue, the Bethany Hope Centre strives to help young women and their children who have both financial and educational challenges. Mainly supported by the Salvation Army, the centre’s community services focus on health, nutrition, early childhood development, education, counselling and practical supports. Major Brenda Coles, spokesperson for the Bethany Hope Centre, said: “It’s been a year since the centre relocated and we’re really proud of our new facility. We used to be on Wellington 26

Street in a 100-year-old building, and through the sale of that we were able to totally refit and renovate this new site into a place really designed for young parents and families.” The Bethany Hope Centre offers daily activities for kids as well as courses for mothers and fathers that help empower them as parents. This will be the first time the centre opens its doors for the annual event celebrating Ottawa’s historically, culturally, functionally, and architecturally significant buildings. Says Coles, “There’s lots of light and warmth, and that’s the first thing people will notice.” ........ Heading further south, the Waupoos Family Farm provides vacations for low-income families that are unable to afford a getaway. The farm’s parent organization, the Waupoos Foundation, originated in Picton in 1975, and was founded by Father Fred Magee and friends. The Oblate Family Farm facilities on Waupoos Island expanded to the Ottawa area in 1980, taking up residence at 2050 Rideau Road in the former municipality of Gloucester. The organization is a Christ-centred community integrating prayer, work, and play in activities while providing both full-week vacations and weekend breaks to families that meet the lowincome criteria. Lee-Ann Garcia, who works at the farm, said: “We have a lot to offer. We organize bingo nights, movie nights, game nights, crafts and wagon rides for the families. Doors Open coincides with our summer kick-off, so that weekend we’ll have lots of activities planned and the farm animals will be out for the public to enjoy.” Now in its 13th consecutive year, Doors Open Ottawa welcomes the public to visit 130 buildings for free during the two-day event. Either guided or self-guided tours will be offered at each building, and representatives will be present to answer any questions. Environmentally friendly transportation options are available. The free Doors Open Ottawa Shuttle Bus, sponsored by the Ottawa Citizen, will travel within proximity of nearly 50 sites, and Ottawa Cycling Tours is offering guided and self-guided Doors Open Ottawa themed tours. It will be a weekend full of discovery! R0012697800-0515

Homelessness, crime and safety are the top concerns on a neighbourhood survey being conducted by the Lowertown Community Association this month. issues on the streets. • The growing number of bars, night clubs and restaurants and the resulting concerns from some residents. • To get feedback on the performance of police and bylaw control in the community. “It might not be a statisti-

cally valid survey that we are doing, but it will help us capture what people are feeling about the community,” Moyer said. The survey is offered in both English at surveymonkey.com/s/PCJXNYB, and in French at surveymonkey.com/ s/H68X9VD.

The survey will be available online for about three weeks, the committee aims to compile the data collected and report back to the association and its membership once complete. For more information about the survey, please email info@ lowertown-basseville.ca.

Local candidates get provincial campaign underway Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Bob Chiarelli, MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean and minister of energy, said he is prepared to take the Liberal budget to voters. Despite criticisms from the other two party leaders, Chiarelli said he is proud of the budget his government crafted and feels confident running on its merits. “We have to run on our policies and our record – the good and the bad,” he said. Chiarelli said the budget fo-

cuses on senior needs in health care – something important in his riding, which has a high concentration of seniors – and anti-poverty initiatives. “We would increase minimum wage and increase wages in the health-care sector, as well as supports to assist seniors and people with disabilities in their homes,” Chiarelli said. But Lisa MacLeod, the MPP for Nepean-Carleton, said if the Liberal budget had passed it would have spelled catastrophe for Ontarians. “It was a tax and spend

budget,” she said, adding increased spending on the debt and the deficit would mean fewer dollars for things like education and health care. MacLeod said she was more than happy to head to the polls. “I am dancing and singing,” she said on May 2, just before Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne dropped the writ. She said Ontarians no longer had faith in the government and they wanted to have a say in who leads the province. “Kathleen Wynne wasn’t

elected and with her plans concerning pensions, I think people want to have a say,” MacLeod said. MacLeod said she has already started canvassing and residents are most concerned about affordability. She said locally, residents are worried

about Kemptville College and the closure of beds at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital. NDP leader Andrea Horwath announced she wouldn’t be supporting the budget on May 2. The NDP had supported the last two budgets.

Jennifer McKenzie, an NDP candidate for Ottawa Centre and chair of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, said she wasn’t surprised that her party’s leader couldn’t support the budget this time. “The NDP have indicated they have lost confidence with the government,” she said. “The public doesn’t trust the Liberals to deliver on promises.”

Site cleanup poses expensive challenge: developer The city gets about a dozen applications for brownfield remediation each year and that number is on the rise as developable land within the Greenbelt becomes scarcer, said John Smit, the city’s manager of urban development review. Even though neighbours liked Mizrahi’s proposed 12storey building, Hobbs the proposal was headed for rejection from the city’s planning staff and committee because it doesn’t meet the community design plan, which calls for six and nine-storey buildings. Giving Mizrahi a grant to cover all of the soil cleanup costs would allow the company to build within those design-plan limits, which the community wants, she said. The head of the company, Sam Mizrahi, said it was Hobbs’ idea to pursue 100 per cent relief from the cost of brownfield cleanup, but he supported the move. At least five other developers have walked away from the site at Wellington and Island Park due to the high cleanup cost, Hobbs and Mizrahi said. “Nobody else will clean

Mizrahi Developments says it needs three extra storeys on its proposed Wellington Street building to make the project viable due to the cost of soil cleanup. up this site,” he said. “We’re building a building that’s iconic and epic.” The costs to cleanup brownfields are on the rise because decontamination standards have been made stricter, Mizrahi said. He said it’s “dangerous” for the city to work in absolutes when it comes to planning policies, especially because he doesn’t feel the community design plan considered the full scope of the challenges in cleaning up the site. He pointed to a contaminat-

ed site on Hazelton Avenue in Toronto, where the city granted a rezoning and a higher-order Official Plan amendment that made that project financially viable for Mizrahi. “If we cannot make it financially feasible for someone to build within the (community design plan) ... We need to look at the policy,” Hobbs said said. Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume said the city’s planning policies have to work together and that’s a consideration when setting things like height

limits in a community design plan. If it wasn’t realistic, it wouldn’t be in the plan, Hume said, noting no one from Mizrahi attended the meeting to argue otherwise. The city used to offer tax relief amounting to 100 per cent of the cost between 2007 and 2010, but has only provided 50 per cent for the past four years. Mayor Jim Watson, who heads the committee, said the 50 per cent policy is appropriate. “Going to 100 per cent is too excessive and too rich for the taxpayers of Ottawa,” he said. Watson said the city would have a hard time explaining why it decided to pay potentially millions of dollars to help out one developer and not others. “As a result of us now even musing about this, we’re go-

ing to have other companies coming to us and asking (for) the same thing,” Watson said. City lawyer Tim Marc agreed that any deviation from the policy would raise concerns about a discriminatory approach. Some councillors saw the difficulty of the situation and wondered if asking staff to review whether the 50-percent brownfields policy was working, or if council should consider upping the funding across the board.

proach was voted down 6-5 by committee members. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark questioned whether it was the city’s job to ensure developers have enough revenue in their business plans in order to cover the cost of remediating the land. Mizrahi said he’s still optimistic about the project and will continue to pursue the 12-storey proposal with an appeal at the Ontario Municipal Board if necessary. “I believe at the end of the day what is right and correct with triumph,” he said. “If you look at the fundamentals of what we’ve done, they’re correct.”

News - In Aesop’s fable The Ant and the Grasshopper, the industrious ant stores food for the winter, while the carefree grasshopper spends the summer singing away. When the winter arrives, and the cold weather hits, the hungry grasshopper must ask the ant for food. It may be just a cautionary tale, but for many Canadians who don’t put enough money away for retirement, it could soon become a reality. According to a Sun Life Fi-

nancial survey, one quarter of Canadians do not know, or have not given any thought to where their retirement income will come from. ”There is actually a lot of help out there. It’s just a matter of reaching out to a financial institution and asking questions,” said Cindy Crean, managing director of private clients for Sun Life Global Investments. Retirement savings experts suggest that individuals require 50-70 per cent of their pre-retirement income to maintain their standard of living in retirement. What’s the best way to do

that? Start early is the common refrain: A 21-year-old investing a modest $100 a month into an RRSP at 5 per cent return can earn close to $200,000 by age 65. Though those in their 20s may not have much money for investments, between paying off school debts and covering the rent, this is a crucial decade to start developing good saving habits, said Crean. And, as people progress into their 30s and 40s, she said, it’s important to stay the course and continue to save. ”People in their 30s are not

necessarily thinking about retirement,” Crean said. “They should be, but they are probably just thinking about raising their kids, educating them and paying down their mortgage and maybe take a holiday.” But no matter how tight the budget, the most important rule to investing for retirement is to, well, just do it. “ ”Everyone should be doing something,” said Crean, stressing that sitting down with a financial advisor can Òhelp you rest easy at night.

‘People just fail to plan’ Continued from page 33

”If you have $2,000 to put away I think most people would look at that and say, ‘that’s not very much. Should I even be bothering to do it?’” she said. “I would say yes, absolutely.” For most people, though, investing for retirement depends on a lot of variables. ”If you’re a teacher and you have a defined benefit pension plan that has indexing that is going to provide you with a pretty decent income at retirement, you may not need as much money in the bank to augment or complement that income,” Crean explained. “Other individuals without a pension will need a significant amount of money in RRSPs (and other investments) to generate the kind of income required at retirement.” One recent study, however, says the situation is not so dire, as Aesop’s tale fails to take into account the grasshopper’s ability to depend on a social safety net. A study released by the Fraser Institute in late April argues there is no retirement income crisis in Canada. The study, titled The Reality of Retirement Income in Canada, notes that focusing exclusively on the traditional pillars of the pension system like Old Age Security, CPP/

QPP, and voluntary pensions such as RRSPs, overlooks trillions of dollars in assets held by Canadians. Those assets are held in the form of home equity and other savings and largely undocumented support from family and friends. Other research paints a different picture on people’s retirement plans. BMO Financial Group in March released a report that suggests most Canadians plan to depend on the CPP after their working lives. The survey showed 90 per cent will look to the CPP in retirement, while 88 per cent will bank on RRSP savings. Close to 60 per cent will hold a part-time job to fund retirement while 49 per cent plan to sell their homes. Thirty-four per cent responded they are hoping on a lottery win to get through their golden years. But those tasked with overseeing Canada’s pension distribution say expecting the government to make up the difference in poor saving is a risk. Most Ontarians currently earn about $9,000 annually from CPP and Old Age Security with the average monthly payout less than $600. With a tsunami of retirees flowing through the system in the next 20 years, government officials anticipate a burden on social programs

as more people rely solely on CPP. Asked to pinpoint the cause for the pension crunch, Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa pointed to a lack of education and lack of opportunity for investment as key culprits. ”About 50 per cent of the population doesn’t have a private pension plan. A lot of people aren’t utilizing the room in their RRSPs. There is about $600 million in RRSP room still available,” Sousa said. “All this has an impact, ultimately, on our social costs in future because many are going to retire now on CPP alone and that is not going to be enough.” Backed by various organizations calling for action, the Liberal Government in Ontario, with NDP support, set out on introducing reforms to supplement the CPP. ”We want to provide more opportunities, more choice and more availability for residents to supplement their pension,” Sousa said. Regardless of whether a pension crisis exists or not, financial experts like former CFL player Chuck Ealey, who became a financial director with Investors Group after retiring from the game, argue creating a nest egg for retirement should be a priority for everyone. ”Nobody plans to fail,” said Ealey. “But people just fail to plan.”

Constable making most of second chance at life Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland

Const. Andrew Rosbrook runs along River Road on May 5. Rosbrook was running the New Life Mike Marathon – 470 kilometres from Ottawa to Toronto – to raise awareness about the need for public access to Automatic External Defibrillators.

News - Const. Andrew Rosbrook celebrated his second chance at life by starting an eight-day trek from Ottawa to Toronto. Rosbrook was within sight of the finish line during last year’s annual spring marathon in Toronto when he collapsed. He woke up later at St. Michael’s hospital hours later to learn that he had suffered from cardiac arrest. It was the alarmed scream

of a fellow runner as Rosbrook hit the ground that drew the attention of Det. Laurie McCann, handling traffic detail nearby. It took an off-duty physician, a paramedic and a paramedic in training to save his life. The paramedics were armed with a MIKEY defibrillator and administered the shock to the chest that started his heart after he had been without a pulse for five minutes. Rosbrook said after his second chance at life he wanted to do something worthwhile.

Touch A Truck Sunday, June 1st, 2014 Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre 10:00 A.M.—3:00 P.M.

“I think we need to raise awareness,” he said. “A MIKEY defibrillator saved my life. But a lot of people are afraid to use them. In my case I was dead so I couldn’t have been worse off.” Rosbrook is an avid runner, so he thought it would be apt to make his fundraiser a marathon that will end where he was supposed to finish the marathon a year ago. “The organizers of the Toronto marathon are going to give him a completion medal a year after the race,” Rosbrook’s mother Anita said. “We are very proud of him. He is really doing something with the second chance he was given.” Before the cardiac arrest last year, Rosbrook had run a variety of marathons, half-marathons and ultra races – anything over 42 kilometres. “I think he has been

a runner since he was five or 10,” Anita said. On the first day of his eight day journey, Rosbrook started at Parliament Hill and then made stops at Hunt Club Road and Riverside before ending the day in Kemptville. “I am taking it slow and pacing myself,” he said, adding he was keeping a clear mind and watching the local architecture and countryside roll by as he ran. He said he planned to stop every 20 km along his route before hitting the finish line in Toronto on May 12. Rosbrook said he feels he owes it to himself to spread the message about the importance of defibrillators. “I will run, walk, crawl or stumble 60 to 70 km a day to the finish line of the race that nearly ended my life last year,” he said.

Offices, storefronts and more industrial coming to Carp Road Zoning changes aimed at encouraging businesses to expand, locate in corridor Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Offices and storefronts should be coming to Carp Road soon. The move to increase the variety and types of businesses allowed on the corridor is an attempt to boost the economic opportunity in the Carp employment area. One business owner who came to speak at the May 5 meeting of the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee said the zoning changes are just what he needs in order to expand his company and hire more workers. Roger Woeller of BluMetric Environmental said his clean technology business has

grown over its 30 years being headquartered on Carp Road. Now that he has 90 staff at that location, his business is actually operating an ‘illegal’ office. The new zoning allowing such offices will give him the chance to expand to 150 workers. The changes also add the ability for businesses in ‘rural commercial’ zones to add some industrial functions, such as research and development activities. Roddy Bolivar, the executive director of the Carp Road Corrider Business Improvement Area (BIA), said the changes correct things as simple as allowing for warehouses that are obviously necessary components of many light-industrial businesses allowed to operate there. Zoning changes were also made to allow businesses to operate on depleted mining sites, including a location owned by Waste Management,

which had its sand and gravel license removed because the resource is depleted. That site will now be zoned for heavy industrial use, consistent with the site’s designation in the community design plan. For light industrial businesses, the new zoning will allow them to actually sell the product they make at their location. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said it corrects a zoning bylaw that made no sense. “If you have a business there, you should be able to do whatever you want with your business,” he said. But Harold Moore, a resident who was involved in developing the community design plan, said the changes just “muddy the waters.” He said the changes water down the intent of the decadeold plan by allowing basically the same type of use on almost all lots in the corridor. The alterations aren’t in-

tended to make Carp Road have more of a ‘village’ feel and that won’t be in the goal in the future, Bolivar said. Although business owners are satisfied the changes will make a positive difference for them, they agree there is still a need for a broader review of a community design plan for the area. There is such a plan dictating how the corridor develops, but it is 10 years old and becoming out-of-date, Bolivar said. He will write the city’s manager of policy development and urban design to propose the Carp corridor community design plan receive a full update in the next term of council. One item to consider is the possibility of allowing the types of businesses that would serve commuters who use the road every day, such as medical centres and dental offices. Some of those businesses have proposed such facilities

for Carp Road, but the city’s plans direct those types of businesses towards rural villages. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry disagreed that there is a pressing need for a broader update to the community design plan, saying the business owners he’s heard from think the changes are what are needed. Residents in the area, especially those in the few homes left scattered between businesses, are also happy because their properties now have commercial or industrial zoning, which increases the land’s value, the councillor said. TRAFFIC CONCERNS

But El-Chantiry said he does agree that more study is needed when it comes to traffic. The way the city evaluates traffic is based on applications for individual businesses, but there is a need to look at the

combined traffic generated by a number of businesses in close proximity, he said. Any application for a new business in that corridor should trigger an area traffic study, the councillor said. “I do believe the traffic pattern has changed and the city needs to be careful.” Richardson Side Road is a particular concern for ElChantiry as well as for a couple of residents who came to the meeting or wrote letters, including Moore. That road is now connected to Terry Fox Drive and growing communities to the south, in Kanata, which is putting more pressure on Richardson as a thoroughfare and an entranceway to the Carp Road corridor. Five or 10 years from now, the city might need to take another look at whether to slate Richardson Side Road as part of that commercial area, ElChantiry said – once the Carp Road corridor is built up.

PET OF THE WEEK

Pet Adoptions MAVERICK (A164508)

Maverick (A164508), is a friendly feline who will provide loads of entertainment as she loves to be the life of the party. She’s a sweet girl who gets along well with other cats and will happily greet you at the door when you come home. This one-year-old is a kitten at heart. She’s a girl-on-the-go who will stop for a little snuggle before running off to her next big adventure. Playing with toys, being silly and exploring new cardboard boxes are some of her favourite things. Maverick could live with a respectful dog who has known cats before.

For more information on Maverick and all our adoptable animals, stop by the OHS at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Check out our website at ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of the animals available for adoption.

When the OHS experienced a food shortage last fall, this person scoured the stores, not just to find any pet food, but the kind that we always use, so the animals wouldn’t become ill from a sudden change in diet. This person is a great ambassador for the OHS, spreading the word about our work and our stories

about the plight of animals in our community. This same person helps others to become responsible pet owners. This person never ignores neglect and abuse, being vigilant by reporting it to us and by advocating for more effective laws to end it. This person truly cares about animals and understands that how they are treated is a measure of our humanity. Who is this amazing person that we couldn’t be here without? You. You are amazing.

Ottawa wrestler to compete at Pan Am championships City’s amateur wrestlers shine on mat this season Erin McCracken

erin.mccracken@metroland.com

Sports - Augusta Eve latches on to Emma Crouch’s arm, pulling her in close before throwing an arm around her neck. The competitors release each other, before once again tentatively moving in closer, each vying to gain the upper hand, moving at lightening speed to force the other down on the mat. “(Augusta is) always fighting to the end,” said Deborah Jehu, a coach with the National Capital Wrestling Club, which trains out of St. Patrick’s Catholic High School. “And that’s really what makes it between somebody who’s going to be successful or not,” Jehu said of the 17year-old who is in Grade 12 at Hillcrest High School. The skills Eve has built up in the four years she has wrestled with the club and at her high school culminated in a stellar season this year that has allowed her to compete at the Junior Pan American Championships in Toronto, from June 27 to 29. The championships will see athletes, born in 1994 and 1995, come from across North, Central and South America. Eve was born in 1996, but is being allowed to compete, and she expects to face some tough competition on the mat. “So I’m the youngest and I’m probably smaller than a lot people ’cause most people cut a lot more weight than I do, because I don’t have to lose very much,” said the Riverside Park resident, who stands at just over four-foot-11 and weighs in at 44 kilograms. “I’m already small.” Earlier this year she claimed gold at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations championships and juvenile provincial gold. Eve also earned bronze against an older, heavier opponent on the university tournament circuit, which allowed her to shop for universities and wrestling clubs as she prepares to graduate from high school. McMaster University has offered her a scholarship, and Eve has her eye on the University of Toronto, also for chemical engineering studies. The University of Ottawa, which

Eve, 17, will compete at the Junior Pan Am Championships in Toronto in June. she is considering, doesn’t have a wrestling program. If she stays close to home, she may return to the National Capital Wrestling Club as a coach. But for now, her focus is on the competitions ahead, including the Canada Cup in July. “It is fun to just roll around with people and take them down and to be able to do that in a safe environment,” said Eve. “I like the technical aspect. I’m pretty analytical and I like learning how to do everything, like trying to improve on my techniques.” She is focusing on perfecting her game plan, and how best to earn points on the mat. To win, a wrestler must earn 10 points more than an opponent, or pin them, or have more points when the two, three-minute rounds end. Though she spends just six minutes on the mat, it’s grueling. “It’s tough though, because you’re going hard,” Eve said. But because she’s a highly technical freestyle wrestler, she is a force to be reckoned with, adapting easily to her opponents. “She definitely enjoys taking her shots,” Jehu said. “She knows her opponents and can think ahead of time what she’s going to do.” Fellow club competitor Quinlan Walker also had one of the best showings this season, and now has his eye on the Canada Cup on July 5, though homework is his priority. The 18-year-old Canterbury High School student, who is six-foot-two and weighs 85 kilograms, also added to his

collection of medals with wins at OFSAA and the national wrestling club championships. “I had fun,” the Greenboro resident said. “If you look at the podium shots from this year I’m always smiling.” This is what motivates him to successfully combine wrestling training four days a week with school and a part-time job as a baker-in-training at Loblaws. “Homework comes first,” he said. Walker is planning to attend Carleton University in the fall to study game design. Though Carleton doesn’t have a wrestling program, he hopes to return to the National Capital Wrestling Club and coach others, and perhaps compete in some university tournaments. “I’m not looking towards the Olympics or anything like that,” he said. “I know how much you have to sacrifice. “You put your entire life into it. You don’t have time for a family; you don’t have time for a proper job.” Still, Walker is known at the club for being dedicated to his sport. “When he gets in the ring, he’s just super focused,” Jehu said. “He’s also very set on never giving up the point. “If anyone even gets an advantage on him he scrambling, he’s moving, always trying to get the advantage and get the point.” Still, for Walker, wrestling is all about fun and friendship. “I don’t think I’d be able to survive if I wasn’t having fun,” he said.

Audrey very fearful of not passing Entrance Class

A

udrey prayed a lot. Of course, she was much older and much smarter than I was, and when she told me to get down on the braided rug by our bed to pray with her, I knew better than to ask why. Our family rarely varied from our bedtime routine. Once we had our necks washed, teeth brushed with baking soda, and nails cleaned, and changed into our pyjamas, we followed Mother upstairs and headed for the big braided rug under the window looking out towards the West Hill. As Mother settled into the rocking chair, we five children took our places on our knees around her, and whatever Mother prayed for we repeated verbatim. Once she had touched the tops of each head and we had said “amen” in unison, we headed for our beds. But this time of year, when the end of the year was close at the Northcote School, my sister Audrey always had extra prayers to say, and of course two praying at the same time for the same thing, she convinced me, had much more power than just one of us asking for a special blessing. The fact that the prayer had nothing to do with me didn’t seem to matter. It was the number, Audrey said, that counted. And so, after the boys had gone to bed, Mother had

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories gone back downstairs, and Audrey had blown out the lamp, she tapped me on the shoulder, and I knew without asking, we were in for another long and purposeful prayer on the braided rug by our bed. We had it drilled into us over many Sunday school classes, and long and purposeful prayers from our whale of a minister as he flailed his arms from the pulpit every Sunday at the Lutheran Church, that praying for material things was right up there with stealing chickens. I confess I often prayed for black patent shoes, and white stockings, and blonde curls like Marguirite, but I figured God would take into account my young age and forgive me. And of course, my prayers were silently said, so I was the only one who knew I had entered into this discretion, and I figured it was just between God and me. But once the school year was coming to a close, Audrey started in on these long prayers at night in the silence of our hall-bedroom upstairs.

“Make sure your eyes are closed,” she whispered, as if I didn’t know enough to close my eyes. Then she would start. The prayers themselves varied every night, but the plea was the same. Audrey prayed to graduate from the Entrance Class. There was never any doubt in my mind that she would pass with or without our special prayers, but Audrey wasn’t taking any chances. And so every night, right up until the day Miss Crosby handed out our report cards, Audrey and I got down on the rug by the bed and prayed that Audrey would graduate from the Northcote School. This of course, would go on for weeks, and by the time it was coming up to the last day of school, I was convinced God would be sick and tired of what Audrey and I were praying for. Why Audrey was so scared of failing was beyond me. Of course, no one ever went back to school if they failed the Entrance Class, and that was what terrified my sister.

‘Housework – that’s what they do’ Continued from page 41

One day, when we were sitting in the old wood swing in the grape arbour, and our Saturday chores had been done, I asked Audrey why it was so important that she get out of the Entrance Class. Couldn’t she just stay home with Mother? Goodness knows there was enough to keep busy at on the farm: the garden was being planted, spring housecleaning was under way, the summer clothes had to be readied. And besides, lots of the older girls, when they finished at the Northcote School, would go off and get married if they passed or not. Well, Audrey didn’t even

have a steady boyfriend, so that was out. Then she told me, almost in a whisper, as if she was telling some dark secret. “Do you know what the fate is for a farm girl who doesn’t pass out of the Entrance Class?” she asked. Then she said, again in a whisper, but with a kind of sharpness in her voice: “They go in to Renfrew and do housework for the rich people.” She let out a long, purposeful sigh. “Housework – that’s what they do. I would rather die than leave the farm and go into Renfrew to scrub and clean for the rich people.” She named a few of the girls who once went to the

Northcote School who didn’t pass at the end of year, and they were in Renfrew, away from the only home they knew, doing housework for the rich people. So that was the fate of my beloved sister Audrey if she didn’t pass out of the Entrance Class. Once she told me that, I no longer felt the same about our secret nightly prayer at the side of my bed. I put my mind right to it and became just as fervent as my sister, begging God to help her get that report card from Miss Crosby at the end of the school year, saying she had graduated from the Entrance Class, saving her from doing housework in Renfrew for the rich people.

Aries, your thoughts are distant right now, almost as if you’re living in a fantasy world. This is creatively beneficial but not so helpful for practical tasks. Taurus, if you’re not careful, you could find yourself debating family and friends this week. Instead, try to sit back and listen rather than fostering debate. Gemini, a realization about what is really important to you instills a renewed sense of confidence this week. You will be focused on important things. Cancer, if your finances seem like they are in a state of upheaval, it could be because you have not looked at everything in black and white just yet. Make some changes. You come on too strong sometimes, Leo. Those who know you best can handle this approach, but you can scare off potential new friends if you do not ease up. Be patient and do not demand too much of yourself during the next few days, Virgo. You need to keep your workload light; otherwise, you may get easily overwhelmed.

This is a time to discover the value of others, Libra. A willingness to try new things and delegate some responsibilities will free up your calendar. Certain personalities don’t always click, Scorpio. Don’t feel the need to overcompensate for a strained relationship. Spend more time with those with whom you connect. Flexible thinking is key, Sagittarius, especially as you face a few new challenges this week. There are some opportunities to reconnect with family later in the week. A rush of activity fills your calendar and keeps your phone ringing off the hook, Capricorn. Your challenge will be separating the pressing events from others. Aquarius, paperwork has built up and requires more time than you had originally planned. There is no way to avoid this task, but a helper can make it move more quickly. Moderation is your mantra for the week, Pisces. Do not let the pendulum swing too far in either direction.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
