EMC news – It was a day like any other. Marnie Calvert’s fiancé, 38-year-old Dave Donaldson, called her on his way to a ball hockey game at a school in Ottawa’s west end and said he’d be home for dinner. He’d be there by 7:30 p.m. But when the time arrived, Donaldson wasn’t there. Sensing something was wrong – because he always called if he’d be late – Calvert called him at 8 p.m. and got his voicemail. She really started to worry and started calling hospitals. Just before 9 p.m., she received a phone call from Donaldson’s friend J.P. who gave her the heartbreaking news – her fiancé went into cardiac arrest when he was playing, and died. “I was shocked. I made him repeat what he told me,” Calvert said. She describes the first year without her fiancé as “sheer hell.” While she still has darker moments, Calvert wanted to do something that would help prevent anybody from having the same experience. On June 21, she joined with Donaldson’s family and closest friends at Regina Street Public School where she donated four defibrillators to schools and community centres across the area including Regina Street Public School, St. Gabriel’s Catholic Elementary School, Calvary Christian Academy and Township of Beckwith, Brunton Community Hall.

Rejuvenated Piazza Dante Park opens with splash Kristy Strauss

kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Neighbours and children were already enjoying the recently renovated Piazza Dante Park near Little Italy on a hot summer Saturday afternoon before official ceremonies to reopen the park on June 23. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes hosted a ceremony for the refurbished park, which now includes a splash pad, gran-

ite entrance columns, games tables and benches. “This shows you what a community, organizations, businesses and the city can do and kinds of beautiful spaces we can make,” said Holmes. “The City of Ottawa’s really keen on letting people use our parks and getting people to help design them. This has turned out to be a very healthy and happy little space.” Piazza Dante Park, which

sits at the corner of Gladstone Avenue and Booth Street, was originally launched as a centennial project in 1967. Upgrading the park has been in progress since 2006. The park’s new splash pad replaces an older fountain that was placed in the middle of the park. “It was a very 1960s type of fountain,” said Holmes, adding the architecture was interesting for its day, but that it was time to replace the corroded under-

ground plumbing. Along with the community, it was decided that a splash pad would be more useful than the fountain. In addition to the splash pad, the park now has memorial monuments, paid for by the Department of Canadian Heritage, as well as $430,000 from the city for renovations and $30,000 in community sponsorships.

MPP says province needs to hold line on paycheques Public sector wage restraint needed to slay budget deficit, Chiarelli says Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news - The provincial government is asking teachers, doctors and public sector workers to hold off demands for wage increases in order to balance the books. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli said after the provincial budget was passed that one of the key elements in

getting rid of the deficit over the next five years is to control spending on compensation for those three sectors. “We are asking those people to take a pause for two years,” he said, adding he hoped the various sectors would work with the province in upcoming labour negotiations. “The average increase for teachers between negotiations and moving up on the pay scale

projects. That may also mean that underutilized schools will have to be closed. “We have left it up to the board for local decision making on which schools have to be combined,” he said. “But there are schools sitting at 40, 50 and 60 per cent capacity with no change in sight. A decision has to be made.” Chiarelli said the budget does make room for education spending in some areas. “We wanted to keep full day kindergarten,” he said. “And that’s what the education adviserrs recommend.”

is eight per cent per year. That is not sustainable,” Chiarelli said, adding that wage freezes will permit more hires and allow class sizes to stay at their reduced level. “If negotiations don’t work, legislation may be necessary,” he said. Chiarelli added that doctors’ salaries have increased as much as a 100 per cent in the last three years. Chiarelli also looked to the province’s school boards to develop an asset management plan as fewer government dollars will be available for capital

There will also continue to be a 30 per cent tuition fee discount for post-secondary students and 60,000 new student spaces at colleges and universities over the next three years across the province. On the health care front, funding has been made available for aging in place programs, to allow seniors to stay in their homes. “We have also started moving forward with our election promise of doctors making house calls,” Chiarelli said. A new MRI was delivered to the Queensway Carleton Hospital in early June and Chiarelli said the hospital’s operating budget will be increased. With the new ambulatory care unit, three new operating

Despite the need for fiscal control, Chiarelli said things are looking up economically. “A lot of people are interested in investing in the economy,” he said, adding that recent announcement of the expansion of Bayshore Shopping Centre will mean 400 new permanent jobs and 1,500 construction jobs.

Community thanks Clare Gardens volunteers Kristy Strauss

kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - What used to be known as “the forgotten park” in Westboro was buzzing on June 23 as the community gathered to celebrate the transformation of the park into one of the most popular spots for children in the area. “You’d hardly see anybody here,” said Gary Ludington, head of the Westboro Community Association. “It used to be as quiet as a graveyard. And now it’s just bubbling with kids shouting, and kids laughing, and kids playing. Everyday, every afternoon, this park has got kids in it.” Those involved in rejuvenating Clare Gardens Park over the last few years held a special event for the community that included live music, games for children, food and even a play featuring children who re-told the history of the park.

“The thing I’m feeling really good about is the acknowledgements,” said Deb Chapman, who has helped lead the park’s renewal. “Even the little children have helped with this park. This is the civics 101 lesson on how to be a good community member.” Jennifer McKenzie, the area’s school board trustee, was also at the event and said the park provides a learning opportunity for children when they’re not in school. “It’s really important for children to feel like they belong to a community,” McKenzie said. “You have to have all ages coming out together and a park like this is a perfect opportunity. Learning and getting in touch with nature is absolutely vital for our children today.” Chapman and Ludington said the park also caters to senior citizens with their own physical activity structure, helping to provide something

for everybody. They said the park’s success shows what can happen when everybody works together – both from the community and with the City of Ottawa. “Residents get what they want and what they need, and it doesn’t cost the city any more,” Chapman said. “The consultation process is a bit more lengthy but in the end, you get what you need.” Businesses and even developers in the community also had a hand in donating some of the park’s plants, Ludington added. Overall, Chapman said the day was all about giving back to the volunteers. “I think it’s really important for anyone volunteering that you thank people who make your dreams come true, and that’s what this is all about,” she said. “We’re giving an opportunity to thank people, while they have fun.”

City fireworks bylaw to be enforced Canada Day weekend City of Ottawa

EMC news - The City of Ottawa wants to remind residents that anyone partaking in fireworks displays over the Canada Day weekend should do so in a safe and courteous manner. The city’s fireworks bylaw clearly explains the procedures around proper fireworks use. Consumer fireworks may be used on the day of, day before or day after Canada Day. They may be used only by someone age 18 or older and only on private property with the permission of the property owner. The fireworks display must not cause danger or nuisance to any person or property. Display fireworks, such as those on Parliament Hill and smaller-scale versions at public parks on Canada Day

weekend, may only be used by someone over 18 who holds a permit issued by the Ottawa fire chief. Applications for these permits must be submitted 30 days before the intended display. Firecrackers are prohibited from being used or sold in the city or in Ontario. Anyone selling, purchasing or using firecrackers within the city is in violation of the fireworks bylaw as well as provincial law. Please review Ottawa’s fireworks bylaw on ottawa.ca for further details. If you know of anyone violating or planning to violate the Fireworks Bylaw, please call 3-1-1. To minimize the risk of fire and burn injury, Ottawa Fire Services does not recommend family fireworks or informal neighbourhood displays. If

you choose to have a family fireworks display, here are some important safety tips to be followed: • Carefully read and follow the label directions on fireworks packaging. • Keep a water hose or pail of water close by. • Discharge fireworks well away from combustible materials such as buildings, trees, dry grass and fuel containers. • Keep onlookers a safe distance away. • Light only one firework at a time and only when they are on the ground. • Never try to re-light dud fireworks. Wait 30 minutes and soak them in a bucket of water. Dispose of them in a metal container. • Keep sparklers away from children.

Dovercourt celebrates National Aboriginal Day Hundreds gather at recreation centre to enjoy traditinal food, culture Kristy Strauss

kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - To celebrate National Aboriginal Day, Kevin Daniels and Cliff Summers want children to enjoy aboriginal culture and help them learn about it at the same time. “When I was the age of these children, the history that I learned about my own people was such a distorted history,” Summers said. “We’re really portrayed so barbaric and so negatively in history.” Summers, a member of the Oneida nation, along with Daniels of the Plains Cree, were getting ready to play the drums as part of National Aboriginal Day celebrations held at Dovercourt Recreation Centre on June 20. The event, hosted by the Odawa Native Friendship Centre, was just one that was put on throughout the city to mark the national day on June 21. Alison Tranter of the Odawa centre said the day at Dovercourt was a celebration of aboriginal culture, and included things like eating traditional foods and story telling. School children also paid a visit to the event, in addition to Gov. Gen. David Johnston. “Canada, as you know, is

very multicultural,” Tranter said. “We all need be aware that (the First Nations of Canada) are a very important community and it’s a very big community here in Ottawa. It will help non-aboriginal school children understand some of the culture.” Daniels and Summers said that through drumming, they hope to remove some misconceptions – including what kind of beat aboriginal drummers use. “Hollywood uses the beat to pump fear into the audience,” Daniels said. “But, the beat is basically a heart beat. It’s the heart beat of mother Earth, and the kids pick the vibration up and they get to feel it, and they express themselves through that feeling and through dance.” Daniels and Summers said they often have children asking them about the drum. “Last year we had a lot of school kids and they were very responsive, and asked a lot of questions,” Summers said. “It was a really good learning and sharing experience.” Daniels said drumming came naturally to him, and many of the songs still played today existed thousands of years ago.

Summers added it’s also important that children understand what it means to be First Nations. “We were the ones who greeted the visitors across the ocean,” he said. “There’s got to be a respectful relationship and

it’s so important that people learn that as soon as possible because it’s an important part of the founding of Canada.” Summers also said that National Aboriginal Day used to be known as National Aboriginal Solidarity Day

He said the day allowed for aboriginals to come together and defend the rights they had, but that National Aboriginal Day emphasizes the positive. “We’re not going to forget where we came from,” Summers said.

Presto cards delayed until February 2013 Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A wide range of technical glitches, including software problems and faulty wiring on card readers, have stalled the launch of OC Transpo’s Presto smart card, meaning the new system won’t be ready until Feb. 1, 2013. Originally scheduled to launch on July 1, the sevenmonth delay is the latest setback for the system that was aimed at replacing monthly passes, cash and eventually tickets. While transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans had recently hinted that an Aug. 1 Presto launch was possible, officials from the Torontobased firm in charge of the smart card system faced a firing line at transit commission on June 20 when they announced that they would have to delay the launch until the new year. And it looks like finding a Presto-based alternative to tickets or investigating opportunities for cell-phone enabled “near field communication” payments won’t happen until well into the new year. Mayor Jim Watson says he has no desire to push for those improvements to the system until after it is launched successfully. “My view is let’s not add bells and whistles to the system until we get the base system working and operating to our satisfaction,” Watson said in an interview. Social service agencies had complained that the city will be putting low-income residents and those who use social services at a disadvantage by making tickets a costlier option for each trip. During a transit commission meeting on June 20, Deans repeatedly asked Bruce McCuaig, chief executive of Metrolinx, the provincial agency that oversees the

Presto program, to explain how Ottawa and OC Transpo could have confidence in the system given all the issues and delays. McCuaig said the long delay is necessary to give time to work out the kinks. Rolling it out any earlier could cause more issues, mainly due to the influx of university students returning in the fall. The intervening period will give Metrolinx and the city time to work on restoring confidence in the system and convincing riders to use it despite

the issues, McCuaig said. Some transit commissioners weren’t convinced that will be easy. “There is no confidence in the card now,” said Marianne Wilkinson, transit commissioner and councillor for Kanata North. McCuaig said he appreciates that demonstrating reliability will be important and a longer delay will help them ensure everything works and that the public has a good impression of the system. McCauig said Metrolinx is willing to offset the additional costs the delay will cause for the city, but they still don’t have complete information from OC Transpo of what all the financial implications could be. That didn’t please transit commissioner Keith Egli, councillor for KnoxdaleMerivale. “I don’t want the impact on

our taxpayers lessened, I want it indemnified,” he said. Egli grilled McCuaig on that issue, getting him to confirm that “offset” would mean a “dollar for dollar” refund. Egli was one in a string of transit commissioners who put the same pointed question to McCuaig: “What went wrong?” Although Presto is already in use in some southern Ontario cities in Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa will be the first to use the “second generation” Presto system that uses technology that hadn’t been tested in realworld situations until the Ottawa pilot project launched in May. But beyond faulty wiring and glitchy software that makes card readers display incorrect screens or even reboot when cards are tapped on them, serious customer service issues have also been identified at Presto’s call centre, including a lack of bilingual attendants. The “white screen” issue, which happens when the readers won’t shut down properly or if they reboot unexpectedly, is proving to be tricky for Metrolinx and its technology provider, Accenture, to fix. In retrospect, McCuaig said, it would have been advisable to have more field testing of the new system before putting it onto OC Transpo buses and a longer “fiends and family” pilot period to test the cards. “We had high hopes for Presto,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “The mistake made was that there should have been a longer period of testing. That didn’t happen.” Deans was successful in passing motion at transit commission on June 20 asking OC Transpo to reinstate the EcoPass program for one year. The discounted payroll reduction transit passes were cancelled, along with student passes for college students over age 19, to align Ottawa’s transit fares with the categories Metrolinx uses in Toronto, because users will be able to use the cards wherever Presto is in use.

Shin Splints: Running Into Problems?

R0011471009

Issues with new transit payment system leads to 7-month delay

By: Your Local Family Physiotherapy Team Lower leg pain, commonly referred to as ‘shin splints’, is an overuse injury that irritates many a runner or athlete. Shin splint pain can be classified into four stages based on severity: 1. Light pain or stiffness after exercise. 2. Pain at the beginning of exercise, disappearing during the warm-up. 3. Pain during and following exercise, and pain at night. Pain disappears after long rest and inactivity. 4. Constant pain. The pain does not disappear after rest. Shin splints occur when excessive loading and stress is placed on the lower leg bone (tibia) during weight bearing

exercises such as walking, running or jumping without proper recovery. For example, if a triathlete takes a hiatus from running for 3 months and starts training again by running everyday for 5km without proper rest, their legs would likely not be able to handle the sudden increase in stress. When the body cannot strengthen the bone fast enough to keep up with the stress being placed on them, shin splints occur. Other factors that may contribute to shin splints include flat feet, old shoes, running or walking on hard surfaces, tight calf muscles and weak ankle stabilizers. Preferred treatment for shin splints typically includes ice

and rest - depending on the stage of severity. A visit to your local family physiotherapist may help you speed up the process by providing you with appropriate exercises, run/walk programs, assisted stretches, electrical modalities and orthotics if indicated. Identifying and addressing the cause of the problem will help to avoid any future run-ins with pain!

Bike cops making presence know on Ottawa streets Laura Mueller

al interest that often comes in handy in those types of situations, Smith admits – they depart with a friendly warning. “We’re going to be here all summer, guys. You’re going to be seeing us around.” Later, at the station, the cops tell me they recognized most of the men, and every single one of them had a rap sheet of charges and convictions.

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - “This is a bad neighbourhood, you know.” From the mouths of babes. The words hit me hard from a boy of about eight years old, circling around us on his little blue bicycle. I was with three Ottawa police constable escorts, cruising through rows of townhouses on our Stevens S8 special edition bicycles. Cop bikes. Genial chatter between cops and about 10 young men about basketball and Dwayne Wade’s failed rap album fooled me into thinking they were a harmless group of high-school buddies, but that eight-year-old kid knew better. Russell Heights, unfortunately, is a bad neighbourhood. But all bad neighbourhoods have good folks, and that’s why Const. Trevor Smith, his counterparts, constables Graham and Lawrence and on that occasion, me, were there on June 14, as the low afternoon sun worked its way towards setting. Graham and Lawrence asked for their first names to be withheld. The good folks like to see the boys in blue says Smith, one of 16 East Division beat cops from the neighbourhood office who spends May to October circling neighbourhoods from Orleans to South Keys on his bicycle. In this case they were wearing black: black bike shorts topped with cargo shorts and heavy black vest strapped over black golf shirt. The good folks like to see the officers are out there, pounding the pavement, circling parks and scaring off kids smoking dope … and people selling dope. I was along to tell you what they see on an average day. HITTING THE ROAD

Laura Mueller

Const. Trevor Smith loads up bicycles for himself and reporter Laura Mueller at the Orleans police station before heading out to patrol in East Division loops around the parking lot and we were off. Smith had it a bit tougher. He’s been on a bike for years, first as a beat cop in Toronto and now in Ottawa, but he and his counterparts have to take a CanBike refresher course each year. From the sounds of it, it entails biking through most of the city, learning basic safety and more police-specific manoeuvres, like creating a bikewall barrier. If I wasn’t along, the group of three or four cops might have set out to ride to the south end, but they cut me some slack and loaded our bikes onto an unmarked Impala. We set off for Train Yards shopping plaza – a central starting point for our tour of some of the city’s roughest neighbourhoods, where gang violence, robberies and especially drug trafficking have taken hold. But before we get to that, we’re sidetracked. A woman runs across the shopping centre parking lot, waving us over to a 14-yearold boy wrestling to keep a large black dog in check. The woman says she saw the boy give the dog a violent kick, so the officers have a chat with him and fan out into the stores to look for his parents.

Our evening didn’t begin in Russell Heights. It started at the police station in Orleans, tucked off Highway 174 at 10th Line Road. Paperwork shuffle out of the way, we headed to the garage to find bicycles to ride. Smith’s bike is off being used for training, so he grabs another one and outfits me with the same. It’s an ultralight 27-speed bike with a suspension that puts my ’70s Raleigh cruiser to shame. For me, it was a couple

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, June 28, 2012

There’s no charge, but there is a lesson in pet care and some advice for a harried mother reticent to give up a dog her children love, but can’t care for. Sometimes, a beat cop is an animal trainer and parenting coach. DOUBLE-TAKES

After that 45-minute interlude, we hit the road and cruise through Blair Court, along Station Road. Watch the reactions, Smith tells me. Some people turn away or drop cell phones into their pockets (many people charged with crimes are released on conditions, including not carrying a cell phone). Others wave, smile, nod approvingly. We get a few double takes when we’re biking around, likely because people mistake us for leisure cyclists at first, until they notice the gear. But in Blair Court, the streets are eerily quiet. This is where a woman was brazenly robbed at knifepoint recently – a relatively common occurrence, Smith says, but this particular incident caught the police’s attention. Seeing no one around is troubling to the cops. As we round the bend, strains of children’s laughter creep towards us and colourful balloons come into view. It’s the annual summer kickoff at Blair Court Community House, hosted by community police officer, Const. Gary McCoy. It’s obvious how McCoy’s role overlaps with the work carried out by Smith and the neighbourhood office cops. His presence in the community and as the “eyes on the street” clear out any other potentially suspicious behaviour in the neighbourhood, and that’s an effect the bike cops hope to replicate when they’re out and about. “It’s a more intimate way

of policing, I guess. It’s a more personal way because we’re close to people and they see us out of the cars,” Smith says. “On the bikes, realistically we’re able to sneak up on a lot of people that we can’t do with a car.” Getting that police presence out there is important to the service, says Smith’s staff sergeant, Roland Campbell. People like to see cops on bikes and they always want to see more, he says. A recent survey of residents found that people don’t think the Ottawa police department is doing well with direct engagement with citizens at a local level. The highest mark in that category was for the police’s efforts to work with residents to solve local crime, with 53 per cent of respondents deeming the approach to be good or very good. Only 34 per cent of people who took the survey said the police presence in their neighbourhood on foot or bike was good or very good – the lowest result in that category. When Campbell started policing in 1987, bikes simply weren’t used. They came into popularity for policing in the late 1990s, he says, and the city’s police service has never looked back. “We work for the community,” Campbell says. “(Bikes) are more accessible … The tool is becoming more popular.” “It’s great for us,” Smith says. “We see a lot more from the bikes than the car, and we hear more too.” The farmer’s tan is brutal, though, Smith says with a laugh. GROUND ZERO

From sunshine and barbecues to shaded laneways, we cross Russell Road at Haig Drive and land in Russell Heights – considered to be one of the city’s “ground zeroes” for gang activity.

Priorities are set by staff sergeants, but the constables know where to go. They’ll head to troubled neighbourhoods to give police visibility in areas from which residents call in complaints about gangs, drug trafficking and violence. While Blair Court was a meandering tour, Russell Heights required more strategy. The cops know this co-op housing development like the backs of their hands and quickly piece together a plan to box in a group of men known to police. As Smith and I come up the rear of the courtyard, Lawrence and Graham are already checking the IDs of a group of around 10 guys leaning against a fence. “Any involvement with the police?” they are asked. The response is headshakes and “No” all around. They’re quiet, compliant. They’ve been through this before. The police run their records to see if they are telling the truth and check if they have any warrants or release conditions they are breaching. That’s often how the police are able to bag a criminal, Smith says. But if a justice of the peace lets them out again, it’s Smith who will hear about it from neighbours as he bikes through the community. “It’s frustrating,” he says. This group checks out, but it takes some time and radioing back and forth with dispatch. The men get annoyed – they’re going to be late for a basketball game. “Do you do this in other neighbourhoods?” one asks. “I match the description every day, man.” Smith defuses the chatter, reminding the guys that the good people in the neighbourhood want them there, and the only people who don’t are ones that are causing trouble. After switching the subject back to basketball – a person-

Between chatting about basketball and cycling around, Smith says that sometimes his job “hardly feels like work.” He’s bluffing, but it’s clear how much he enjoys face-toface policing, and he’s experienced. He tries to cover a lot of territory and remember a lot of names and faces, but it’s something he’s so passionate about that he might keep doing it for his whole career – if he doesn’t make chief, of course. Constables like Smith can cover upwards or 50 kilometres patrolling their areas, or they could run into a person wanted by police within the first few metres. Most frequently, they bike around 20 kilometres per shift. Usually those kilometres are covered with slow-paced patrolling, but Smith has taken up the occasional bike pursuit. “You can’t outrun a bike. Maybe Ben Johnson in his heyday, but you’re not going to outrun a bike,” he says. Parks are another big focus for the neighbourhood office, so when Smith peels off for a meeting, Graham, Lawrence and I continue on to Petrie Island. This summer is shaping up to be a hassle for them to patrol parks, the cops hint. Within 30 minutes, the constables speak to at least five pairs or groups of people who claim to know nothing of the city’s new ban on smoking in parks and on beaches. Those smokers got verbal warnings only; fines will be handed out starting July 2. But like anyone cycling on the roads or trials, cops are more exposed. They don’t have the speed to chase a car or the ability to transport a suspect, and they are out in the open without a shell to protect them if a situation gets violent. That’s rare, the officers say. Most of the time they’re simply hitting trails and parks and tucking into laneways that vehicles can’t access, deterring criminal activity and keeping an eye out for recognizable faces. They are often called in as “gophers” to assist with big arrests or marijuana grow operation busts. And most importantly, the officers are out there, showing the badge in areas that need them around. Like in Riverview Park, enroute to Russell Heights. A woman rode by on a bike of her own, turning around to shout, “Thank you! I don’t see you here too often.” “See?” Smith said, turning to me. “That’s why we do it.”

R0011472637

EMC news - Barbara Crook wants to make sure nobody goes through what she and her father did when it comes to mental health, making a $1 million donation to the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group. With tears in her eyes, Crook approached a podium set up the auditorium at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and told the story of her personal struggle. “When my sister and I were little girls, our father suffered severe depression,� Crook said, adding that her father was sent to a psychiatric ward in Montreal during the same time her grandmother was sick. “We had a vague idea about nana, and we thought dad was on a business trip.� She spoke about how her father was let go from his job because of his mental illness and how different people’s outlook on mental health was then compared to now, “Imagine the loyal worker, husband and father could be fired over an illness which he had no control over,� Crook said. “He was considered expendable, tainted.� Crook also talked about her own battle with depression and how she was treated for it in 1996. While her brain responded to the medication, she said some people aren’t so lucky. “It can take months, even years, for people to get the right treatment,� Crook said.

Crook’s donation will go to help the mental health centre’s new brain imaging centre and will help researchers at the Royal look into the causes of depression and develop methods for more effective treatment and early diagnosis. “We want to get more people suffering from mental illness into remission faster and transform the way we’re treating depression,â€? said AndrĂŠe Steel, president and chief executive of The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health. “Philanthropy has the power to change lives, transform care, and power to inspire hope in patients everywhere.â€? Crook said simply put, the new brain imaging centre will help “people get their lives back more quickly.â€? “It’s about reminding people there’s hope,â€? Crook said. George Weber, president of the Royal, added that impressions of mental illness have begun to change, but there’s still more work to be done. “The stigma still exists but the walls are coming down,â€? Weber said, adding that having people like Crook talk so openly about their struggle helps. “But we still have a long way to go.â€?

New shop to replace former ByWard Market fruit store Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A new vendor is set to open in the former home of the Fresh Fruit Company in the ByWard Market. City council approved plans for a fresh food store and sandwich shop at 51 York St., proposed by the owner of the Moulin de Provence bakery across the street. “What he’s doing there is (called) Olive and Chili,� Fleury said. “It’s a produce and fresh foods (store), and there will be things like paninis.� Maintaining the food retail use of that space was important to local residents and the city, said Rideau-Vanier Ward Coun. Mathieu Fleury. “The idea of access to food and fresh produce will still be maintained in this new contract,� he said. “It’s not per-

fect – it’s not Ontario fruits, as people would have liked to see maintained, but it’s the best scenario. “What’s interesting and what’s important to us is that we maintain the purpose of that physical place, no matter who runs it.� The storefront is owned by the city and the rent is $96,000 a year. It’s a good move for the

city because it will once again be collecting rent revenue from the space. The previous vendors were behind on rent payments when the store closed, Fleury said. The new shop has all the ingredients for success, especially since the owner has lots of experience establishing a similar business in the ByWard Market.

Help pump up Canada’s athletes this July 1

T

here’s no doubt that Hudson’s Bay Company is hoping Canadians are well aware of the Olympics, and will don Team Canada’s new 2012 Olympic Games gear come July 1. But all commercial interests aside, Canada Day is a prime date to start gearing up for the upcoming Games. Many of our athletes will likely refrain from an

all-day, beer and barbecue celebration; most will spend at least a portion of the day training for one of the biggest competitions of their lives, less than a month away. We love Canada, and you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t look forward to the day where we celebrate all things Canadian. And that includes our ath-

letes on the road to London. Canada Day is the perfect time to find your local athletes to cheer on at the Olympics. We can let our pride and excitement carry us through to the July 27 opening ceremonies. The Olympic Games are almost as patriotic as July 1 itself, with our athletes proudly wearing the country’s colours on an international stage.

When they march into the stadium for the opening ceremonies, there’s an excitement that comes alive that even a packed nation’s capital and fireworks can’t always reach. We’re proud to be Canadian when among an international crowd, and it’s a great thing to be able to support so many athletes abroad. When we can quantify being the best in the world at

something, it helps pump up some national pride. The celebration is a great time to not only reflect on the opportunities that we are given as Canadians, but to engage with our Olympic teams and start thinking ahead. So this Canada Day, think about the athletes who are training to represent us and who will wear the maple leaf in a few short weeks.

We’ve got our own website at www.yourottawa region.com that identifies Ontario and Ottawa-based Olympians that we’re excited to follow, and with Canada Day coming, we’re even more amped to see them achieve their dreams. Let’s get behind them and keep our patriotic spirits up as we count down the days until the London 2012 Olympic Games.

COLUMN

What’s a Canadian? What a question CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

A

s usual, Canada Day will be a microcosm of our country. People will head off to the lakes to find some peace and quiet, or they may hop onto some noisy device when they get there, disturbing other people’s peace and quiet. People will congregate with thousands of other people in downtown Ottawa. They will solemnly celebrate our country’s 145 years or they will party like crazy and leave a mess. If they are a bit more scholarly, they might visit a museum to learn more about their country (amazingly, in this time of cutbacks, the museums are open). Or, being Canadians, they may ignore the whole thing and drive into the United States to do some shopping. It’s what makes this country great, the fact that there is no one way to do things, even on our national holiday. Not that this hasn’t been said before. In fact, it’s hard to find anything to say about Canada that hasn’t been said before on Canada Day by some Canadian. Most of it has been pretty admiring. Canada Day gives us the opportunity to admire ourselves and there is much to admire, not all of it scenic. One of the things we admire is that fact that we don’t tend to be a self-admiring nation. Canadians are their own worst critics, and whenever someone in a foreign country writes something critical about Canada he will find many Canadians eager to agree with him. Obviously, this isn’t all to the good. Just as it is not ideal to be chest-thumping patriots, unwilling to recognize any national faults, it’s not ideal either to be so envious of other countries that we can’t see the virtues in our own.

You know the bit about how Canadians are boring (especially in Ottawa). Many Canadians seem all too willing to buy into that. Yet there’s something to be said for a little boredom, if it means safe streets, no civil war, no mass starvation. Having said all that, what’s new to say about this Canada Day? Well, we have economic woes, which we’ve had before. In the capital, we face public service cutbacks, which we’ve seen before too. It’s hotter than usual, but then, it’s been hotter than usual before and we all always say we’ve never seen it this hot. Sometimes it’s cooler than usual and we say we haven’t seen it this cool. And there is more concern that climate change threatens the lakes, forests and oceans that define us. That concern doesn’t seem to have penetrated the political level. But we have lived with that for a while too. Same old, same old. One thing that feels different is that Canada Day seems less a time for national introspection than it used to be. In years gone by it was common for Canada Day to inspire a wave of earnest commentary seeking to define Canada or, maybe worse, seeking to inspire others to define Canada. Defining Canada was a big national industry for a time. If you had a nickel for every time you saw the words “whither Canada,” you could balance the federal budget. Another opportunity wasted. For a while there we were so busy defining ourselves that we could barely look at the fireworks but, fortunately, those days seem to have passed. We may be self-critical at times but we are also self-confident. We know that we have great innovators, great artists. We have great books and great music and we know that now. Not that we necessarily reward those who produce them. That comes next, perhaps. We don’t worry any more that our kids won’t want to be Canadians. They have shown us that they do. The tricky part now is to create an economy and a social climate that will make them glad they stayed. That thought wasn’t meant to spoil the party.

How to save some green this summer

S

ummer has arrived. Despite the hot and humid weather that’s been creeping up on us for more than a month, Canada Day weekend is our inaugural summer event. Rain or shine, it’s the Canadian way to slip into low gear after July 1. But summer can be an incredibly expensive time of year. Sky-high gas prices, summer camps, utility bills and trips to the beach, and you’re looking at inflation in the triple digits all around. Here are some easy ways to trim your summer household budget: * Start with meal planning. You know those nifty whiteboard menus that stick to the side of the fridge? Be-

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse fore you go shopping – ideally at one of the many local farmers markets – make a list of what you’re going to eat and how you’re going to eat it: plan for snacks, kids’ packed lunches, spontaneous potlucks and lazy Friday afternoons before soccer, when cooking just doesn’t seem like an option. Have staple items stocked in the pantry – whole grain pasta, rice, canned beans – and

limit the rest to a week’s worth of fresh foods. Try to avoid packaged goods like individually portioned crackers, yogurts and cakes. They seem like a great deal at point of purchase, but offer little in the way of value per gram. As for summer camps, it can be intriguing to send children to a themed sports or science camp, but at a fraction of the cost of a

specialty camp, local community day camps have a lot to offer. Chances are, your children will be dressing like pirates one week and learning to cook the next. Every day they’ll be outside playing sports, swimming at a local pool and learning new crafts. This kind of spontaneous learning is best anyway after the structure of the school year. And if the camp is within walking distance of your house, you save on gas, too. A friend recently lamented the rising cost of utilities in her nearby city. There are a few simple ways to cut utility costs without major renovations. Keep curtains drawn on hot, sunny days and try using the air

conditioner for a few hours at a time when the humidity gets unbearable. Rediscover your clothes line. An hour in the hot sun for a load of towels and you’re golden. As for dishes, it may come as a shock, but running the dishwasher once a day is a money-saver compared to hand washing after each meal. And while my children, like everyone else, love a good sprinkler run on a hot day, try to take advantage of the local splash pad instead. If you happen to live in a house and own property, the hot dry summer we’re expecting is a great time to get rid of some of that grass. Build a perennial garden. Plant some hostas, lilies and ferns.

United Way Ottawa making changes to fall campaign Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - In order to encourage increase participation in its annual campaign, the United Way Ottawa will be making big changes to their program this fall, placing less emphasis on specific dollarfigure goals and allowing for targeted fundraising. After falling short of their 2011 campaign goal of $33 million, the organization said at its annual general meeting on June 19 that it will change the way it raises money this fall to allow for customized workplace campaigns. It will allow participating workplaces to aim fundraising efforts towards specific community investments. Likening campaign funding to the music industry, president Michael Allen’s year end report indicated the organization needs to make changes to keep up with the constantly changing habits of today’s donor and the fight for donor dollars. “We are trying to at least put ourselves on an equal footing,” Allen said. The campaigns, which in the past have typically had large dollar goals attached, may even change Allen indicated. “What we have learned from many United Ways who have gone and done this in the past is we have attached ourselves to a number and in fact people are not looking to attach to a number, but they are attached to a goal,” he said. “We will try and frame our goals around our priority focused areas ... and you will see a different campaign structure in the fall.” Bill Baker, chairman of the organization’s resource development committee, said this change will offer companies choices. “We are moving from making the same impact to a cus-

tomized one,” Baker said. “We are also looking at ways to expand the times that workplaces can participate so that it works better for companies.” Other strategies include investing in front-line programs and services, looking at where investments have the most impact. It will also work with industries and communities in an effort to change the way the United Way reaches out to both donors and organizations in need. “We have come a long way in the past 10 years, but we have a long way to go to live and move into our new vision.” Allen said. CHANGE IN FUNDING PRACTICES

Over the past two years, the United Way has changed the way it hands out funding, creating goal priorities and criteria to appeal to donors. This has in turn made securing funding more difficult for some organizations in the city, because

Jamie McCracken, chairman of United Way Ottawa’s investment and impact review committee, announced at the organization’s annual general on June 19 that the board has committed to following a set of recommendations addressed in a recent funding report. it involves meeting these new criteria, filling out proposals for funding, something that is seen as being onerous by some long-time United Way funding recipients. Allen said the new system gives small organizations a chance to receive funding. “We do think that, we know it is not perfect, but we needed to find a way to make sure the money we were investing were strongly aligned to the goals we have created,” Allen said.

But some organizations did not appreciate the new changes. “(The) United Way was created to undertake the stress of fundraising,” Adele Muldoor, who donates to the organization, said. “Now people are falling through the gaps. The work you are describing is fine work, but should be undertaken by the organizations that have had funding cut.” At last year’s meeting, some agencies, service providers and

donors raised concerns about the gaps in the new system. In response to those concerns, the investment and impact review committee was formed and it issued a report on the new distribution of funds, making 37 recommendations on how United Way Ottawa should move forward. The board of executives announced at the June 19 meeting that the organization would commit to following up on all 37 recommendations.

for some freebies as they’re thinning out. They may be small this year, but before you know it they’ll take over and save you dollars on mowing. As for trips to the beach? Well, they can’t be avoided, can they? Cycling is a great way to get to Gatineau Park if you’ve got the gear. If you have to drive, check out the season parking pass. For $70, you can have access to parking at Lac Leamy and most beaches in the park. Pack a picnic and try to keep to the speed limit to get the best gas mileage. Welcome summer! Now you can enjoy everything the great weather has to offer and save a bit of green at the same time.

Ottawa Community Action, a coalition of community groups and agencies, raised the motion for the review and sat on the committee. The was the first public setting where donors and organizations could ask questions about the report. Cathy Jordan, executive director of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, said she was happy with the work the United Way and the committee have already done, but still felt the new funding criteria leaves behind organizations that rely heavily on the United Way. “Sometimes you don’t want to lose what has been built on in the past,” she said. Allen said he hopes that stakeholders will have more confidence in the United Way once the recommendations are implemented and the results are there for all to see. “We did not want the exercise to be a white wash, but (shows) that we were serious about engaging those who wanted to understand the direction we were on,” he said. “(It was) not to diffuse what happened last year, but to show we were serious to address the issues.” A full list of the recommendations and the board’s commitment to each proposal can be viewed on the website at unitedwayottawa.ca.

EMC news – Adding more recycling bins to Ottawa’s streets is one idea that could form a new waste plan for the city. Between now and September, councillors will undergo consultations and decide which measures will be included in the 30-year waste plan. “Everything’s on the table now,� said environment committee chairwoman Maria McRae. In the future, waste disposal plans will be mandatory in site plan applications, McRae said. The city also plans to start implementing more recycling on construction sites, with blue boxes and black boxes on all sites. The city is also considering if recycling and sorting would

be best undertaken by the city instead of paying someone else, which could result in building a municipal recycling facility in Ottawa. The city’s vehicle needs may change if garbage and recycling pickup changes. Single-streamed collection – gathering both blue and black box materials at once – is one of the options being evaluated. “This summer’s about learning and listening,� McRae said, emphasizing that every option is being considered over the next few months. There are many small steps that are likely to be incorporated, from waste disposal plans at festivals to simply putting out more recycling bins around the city. Committee members want to keep the plan flexible and make it easy for residents

to recycle. Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he wants the flexibility to include new technology. Coun. David Chernushenko said it’s important that when new technologies are released or become cost effective, Ottawa still has the option to implement them. The waste plan will likely aim to identify people who aren’t using green bins and recycling and make those programs easier to adopt. “There is a huge sector of the community that’s not using (the green bins),� McRae said. “And we need to know why.� The plan would be updated annually and revisited every five years, and has a focus on residential waste. Meetings will be held over the summer months to determine which options residents like best. “Come spring of next year, I hope council will have approved the first decade of a 30-year waste plan,� McRae said.

After several unanticipated delays, the upper level of the Brewer Park water play area remains under construction. The splash pad is now scheduled to open in time for the Canada Day weekend.

Brewer Park water play area delayed michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Children of all ages will finally have the chance to cool off at the Brewer Park splash pad if the muchdelayed project is completed by June 29, the latest completion date given by the city. A project to improve the upper lever of the Brewer Park water play area was initially announced in April 2011. At the time, the city planned to have the play area complete for the summer of 2011, but the project was later rescheduled to open in the spring of 2012. That date was subsequently pushed ahead again and the project is now scheduled to be completed just before Canada Day weekend. In an email, city spokesman Barre Campbell said the delay has been because of challenges with a water slide, which will be a main feature for the renovated play area. “The city’s contractor has had some challenges in the supply and installation of the custom-designed water slide to meet CSA (Canadian Standards Association) play equipment guidelines,” Campbell wrote in the email. “As well as the installation of the structural supports and railings for the deck and perimeter of the upper water play area to meet safety standards.” Campbell added the play area cannot be opened for use until all applicable codes are satisfied. The play area, once completed, will feature multiple levels of water play, including the water slide, new splash pad surface, new water cannons and an overhead spray. The wood railings and ramps are being replaced and new benches and shade trees are being added. The community has been updated throughout the process and been promised completion more than once. On June 7, the Ottawa South Community Association posted an update from the city on its website concerning the water play area, stating technical issues with the custom-designed slide and railings for the ramp had caused delays. The update indicated the play area was set to open on June 22. Although construction only involves the upper water play area of the park, the lower water play area, which was

renovated two years ago, must remain closed until the upper area is completed. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said the delays have been very disappointing. “It was supposed to be done last year,” Chernushenko said. “It is way behind schedule. I have been told it has been more complicated that expected.” Chernushenko added he is sympathetic with residents who are disappointed. “When it doesn’t open when we are told it will open, well, it feeds into the skepticism about the city’s contracts,” he said. “With delays with bridges, Presto cards, unfortunately, the public starts to wonder if

anyone in the city knows how to manage a contract.” The councillor committed to reviewing the project’s management again to see where improvements could have been made. Water play areas in the city typically cost in the range of $180,000 to $210,000. The upgrades to the Brewer Park water play area are costing the city $296,000, which includes life-cycle work. The city allocated the money in the spring of 2011, through the cash-in-lieu parkland funds. The upgrade to the water play area represents the last phase of the redevelopment

of the Brewer Park play area into a playground for children of all abilities, as the two-level structure will be fully accessible. The overall redevelopment project began in 2004 as a partnership between the city and six local Ottawa Rotary Clubs. More than $1 million has been put into playground improvements over the last eight years, with two-thirds of which were funded by the Rotary Clubs. Previous phases included the redevelopment of each of the various school-age and pre-school play structures in the park, as well as the upgrade of the lower water play area, which was completed in 2010.

Electricity consumers across Ontario are now billed using time of use rates. Under this new pricing structure, the price of electricity varies depending on when it is used. “Customers can choose to make small changes to conserve energy or shift some of their consumption to lower price periods to save,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa Holding Inc. Time of use rates align the price customers pay for electricity with real market prices, which change throughout the day based on supply and demand. Electricity rates are lowest, or off-peak, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., on weekends and on statutory holidays.

Canlok Stone

In the summer, electricity rates are highest from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The on-peak periods are during the hottest part of the afternoon when air conditioners run the most. “These rates give us all a financial incentive to reduce our electricity use, especially during peak periods,” said Conrad.

Inc.

An easy way to trim peak demand is to set the timer on your dishwasher so it runs after 7 p.m. Washing and drying a load of laundry during offpeak periods costs about 52 cents, while the same consumption during peak periods would cost 94 cents. Hydro Ottawa’s online portal, MyHydroLink, allows customers to learn about their electricity consumption. This secure site shows customers a detailed breakdown of their electricity consumption, by the day, month or billing period.

PepTides to headline ‘come out and play’ Pride fest Annual Capital Pride will feature local band headlining event Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The PepTides, Fevers and Young Empires will headline a “Come out and play”-themed Capital Pride festival this year. The annual Capital Pride Festival will run from Aug. 17 to 26, with the parade and Pride Day wrapping up festivities on Aug. 26. Mayor Jim Watson and Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi were on hand at city hall on June 21 to help announce the event’s theme and headlining acts. Naqvi’s recent work to support the GLBTQ community was applauded during the event. The Ottawa Centre MPP put his name on Toby’s Law, a bill to amend the Ontario Human Rights Code to include gender identity and gender expression. “You’ve made our theme, ‘Come out and play,’ a reality because we can come out and celebrate,” Pride chair Loresa Novy told Naqvi. Watson thanked the festival for putting together a lineup of concerts and events that will draw tourists to the city. Headliners include Ottawa

band The PepTides, voted best album by the Ottawa Citizen and best live show by an Ottawa Xpress reader poll, as well as electronic-pop band Fevers and Canadian “haute rock” band, Young Empires.

Laws can change in the blink of an eye. Let’s keep working hard and not forget the past. eileen murphy

Other acts include Ottawa band Apocalypstic, Ottawabased band Ornaments, Ottawa’s Jack Pine and the Fire, Rockland’s Mastik, Toronto’s Hunter Valentine and a party for queer women called Cherry Bomb, hosted by DJs Cozmic Cat and Denise Benson. In addition to the parade, festival highlights will include the Capital Pride pageant, health and fitness day, human rights vigil, family friendly picnic in the park, queer youth prom and the alternative stage.

Fools to perform gender-bending version of Henry V Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - King Henry V is coming to town with an interesting and foolish twist. The next production in the Torchlight Shakespeare series performed by Company of Fools will be Henry V, which will be appearing in parks across the city this summer, starting on July 2 at Strathcona Park in Sandy Hill. In appropriate Fools fashion, the cast will feature four women and one man, who will be playing the only female role in the production. Director Geoff McBride said it was a natural choice. “Fools tend to take Shakespeare in a non-traditional role anyway,” he said. “There is a natural comedy to any sort of cross-dressing, even men dressing in female clothing. It also screws with the world a

little bit and hopefully people will forget it is boys playing girls and girls playing boys and people will get sucked into the show.” His desire to cast the roles in reverse also had to do with his desire to highlight some of Ottawa’s strong female actors. “Ottawa has some very strong female actors and it seemed a shame to only offer them roles as a princess who gets married off for land and her lady in waiting,” McBride said. Playing Henry is longtime company member Margo MacDonald. “I’m thrilled to be able to embrace the challenge of playing this role,” MacDonald said. “I’ve dreamed of playing Henry since the very first year of the Fools, back when we performed scenes from the play on the streets of Ottawa.” It was quite a while ago - 22

The cast of the Company of Fools Shakespeare in the Park play, Henry the V, rehearses at Algonquin College. years to be precise - that the company first appeared on the Ottawa theatre scene. With the role of Katherine, Orleans resident Simon Bradshaw said is relishing the challenge of playing a woman. “I think this is the first time I have done a show with an otherwise all female cast, so I am very curiously looking forward to that,” Bradshaw said. “Oh - and being a woman seduced by Margo MacDonald as a man, I can’t forget that!” Spending time rehearsing

at Algonquin College, gives the cast an opportunity to feed off each other and work on the play’s strengths and weaknesses, McBride said. “The Fools have a great tradition of taking Shakespeare and making it fun and light and funny,” he said. “(And) it is a wonderful way to see Shakespeare, it was originally meant to be, outdoors.” McBride added he loves directing outdoors, where restrictions such as walls or sounds or lights do not play a

part. “It is challenging and it is freeing at the same time,” McBride said. “You kind of lose your little intimate moments, but you get to do the grander, big things which tend to be ridiculous, which is the fun and purpose with the Fools.” The park performances have always encouraged audience participation and this play will be no exception. The production, McBride said, will feature blood, battle and love. The director will be

arming the audience with tennis balls to act as the English army. “It will be a hail of tennis balls thrown from the audience to the French,” he said. “The audience will become the archery of the English army.” The production runs until Aug. 18 and will travel to a number of locations throughout the city.

Hobbs unveils public installation opportunity for area artists Kristy Strauss

kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Kitchissippi artists recently learned that they’ll have a chance to compete for a commission to create a public art installation at 100 Champagne Ave. “We’re looking for lots of opportunities to focus everyone’s attention on arts and artists living in our midst,” Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs said. “We want to see them make a good living and continue to do wonderful work.” Hobbs made the announcement at her recent art party held in the ward on June 21. While it was a hot and sticky day, she said artists were pleased to hear the announcement. The project comes as part of a deal Hobbs made with the developer of the land, Domicile. Her office said that the developer was subject to

Fire damages home on Dawson Ave. Ottawa West EMC staff

EMC news - A man in his 40s was transported to hospital for smoke inhalation after a fire at 503 Dawson Ave. Ottawa Fire Service received a 911 call just after 8:15 a.m. on June 23 for a fire in an upstairs bedroom at the Westboro home. Calls were made from the home owner and neighbours who saw flames coming out of a bedroom window. When fire crews arrived shortly afterwards, they contained the fire to the second storey bedroom. The only occupant, a male in his 40s, had woken up to a smoke-filled room and tried to put the fire out with a bowl of water. However, he was unable to see through the thick smoke and was evacuated by firefighters. There were no other injuries and the cause is under investigation.

SAVE

tens of thousands of dollars for cash-in-lieu of parking for the site, but Hobbs waived that fee and instead Domicile will fund the competition for

Kitchissippi artists. The upcoming development is a condo project that is scheduled for completion in 2013.

The competition will be run by the city’s public art department and will target Kitchissippi artists. However, Hobbs hopes that

this type of initiative will encourage and celebrate local art for years to come. “We’d like to push for this,” she said. “We hope more op-

portunities come from this.” For more information, visit ourkitchissippi.ca or contact Hobbs’ office at 613-5802485.

New artists bringing heat to Foyer Gallery Latest exhibit turning up temperature at Nepean Sportsplex art hub kristy.strauss@metroland.com

Wiegand said she hopes people viewing her work have an emotional reaction to what they see – but she doesn’t want to pre-judge what that emotion should be. Her work is based on flowers, either in her own garden or elsewhere. “Getting (people) to have a reaction to your painting is enough,” she said. Moore said she paints what she sees when she goes traveling, and the works in this exhibit are inspired by photographs mixed with her own creativity, like her ideas of

EMC news - Orleans’ Claude Giroux, who plays in the NHL for the Philadelphia Flyers, has been chosen to be on the cover of the EA Sports video game NHL 13. The popular video game held a contest to chose who would be their next cover boy. “The support fans have given me throughout the campaign has been unbelievable,” said Giroux in a press release. It was announced that the former Cumberland Grads player won the honours during the 2012 NHL Awards in Los Angeles on June 20, beating out runner up, Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne. The video game will be released in September.

The artists also said the exhibit provides an opportunity for the public to see new talent at the Foyer Gallery, and see the varied techniques and styles used. “There’s an awful lot of talent here,” Moore said. “It’s just incredible what people can do. It’s amazing.” R0011474863

EMC entertainment Things are heating up at the Foyer Gallery this summer, where newly recruited gallery artists will show their work until July 8 in an exhibit called Heat. “You could interpret the subject matter differently,” said one of the artists, Jessie Parker. “Instead of seeing a woman with a glow (in a piece of work), it could be a woman with a hot flash.” The various works of art showing heat range from artist Anne Moore’s work inspired by her travels to Barbados, to artist Robert Arnold’s experimentation with digital art showing “hot” colours. Each of the artists are new members to the Foyer Gallery, located at the Nepean Sportsplex, having just joined in the last couple months. They each have their own backgrounds in art. Arnold worked for 33 years at the Canadian Conservation Institute in the Department of Heritage, working in the field of art conservation. Moore is teaching art. Artist Donna Wiegand is retired, and is pursuing her love of art in her spare time. Jessie Parker has always been an artist and photographer. Artist Jean Morin’s work will also be on exhibit. Each artist was asked to look through their portfolios to find works that centre around the theme of heat for the exhibit. The result is that each artist interpreted the exhibit in different ways.

One of Parker’s works shows rusty metal. She chose it to show at the exhibit because of its colours, but also to show people beauty that’s right in front of them. “I see beauty in things where you would never notice and pass by,” said Parker. “When I’m working on it, I’m pulling out the colours and letting it tell me its story. I just want people to take a look and see what’s in front of their noses.” Jessica Fleury said she tends to use cooler colours, and she found the show to be a bit challenging. “My work is very wintery and very cold,” Fleury said. She hopes people will take a closer look at things through the work she chose that related to the heat theme. “I’m trying to convery vibrancy in life. There’s always something there, so take a closer look and there’s so much more to see. When you look at the (Rideau) canal, take a look and see what’s around and what’s moving together.” Arnold took original sketches and created his work on the computer. Then, he got his images printed on canvas. He said while there’s specific messages he’d like to get out to the viewer, he hopes viewers notice the type of

arly in the morning, this time of year, I could hear Father stirring downstairs. He would try to be quiet so as not to rouse the rest of the house, but as soon as he lit the cook stove, scraping the lids to put in the kindling, I would waken. And then I would hear Mother in the kitchen getting breakfast ready. The sun would be just rising when Father would head to the barns for the chores, returning to the house to down his breakfast and head out again for the long day ahead in the fields. Likely the binder or the hay mower would already be in a far-off part of the farm, left there from the day before. Our fields were long and narrow in the Northcote area and it seemed to me, when I was so young, that when Father went beyond the west hill, he was in another part of the country. He loved his land. Just like he loved every animal in the barns and fields. Grampa, when he came to visit from Ottawa, would say, “Albert is a true farmer.” On week days, Mother

At any other time of the year, Father would spend some time after supper reading the paper, with his feet resting on the oven door. But when he had been in back fields from daylight to dusk, it was all he could do to muster enough strength to plod to the bedroom, undress and fall into bed. I knew without fail, the next morning there would be a repeat of what had happened the day before and would happen many days hence. Although I didn’t understand completely what the Depression really meant, I knew for us to survive it, Father would have to continue the back-breaking work of tilling the land and harvesting the crops, with machinery that had seen better days. And in my prayers at night, I would offer up a special prayer for Father, that he would have the strength to do what had to be done to keep the farm going and to keep the Depression from closing in around us.

I would watch his figure grow larger and I would feel the utmost relief that he would soon be home, safe and sound. “He’s home,” I would yell. Everett would get up and go out to the barn yard and take the team from Father, feed them oats, and let them drink from the watering trough and then take them into the barn for the night. Father would come into the kitchen, covered with dirt and chaff, looking like he had rolled in a dust bin. He would go to the bench at the back door where Mother would have put out a fresh basin of warm water. I would watch him splash the water over his face and rub it up his arms, and see the water turn black. He would reach up to the huck towel and dry himself off and it would look like he didn’t have another ounce of strength in his body. Mother would put a steaming supper before him and I never knew whether I should sit at the table with him so that he wouldn’t be eating alone, or to leave him in peace.

Mother lived in constant dread that somehow a mouse would get into the milk can during the night, which Father said was an impossibility since the lids fit so tightly. But she wasn’t taking any chances, thus the cheesecloth was extra protection. We would have our supper without Father these nights. He would still be working in the fields. It didn’t seem right somehow, that he wasn’t sitting at the head of the table. But his plate would be there, just as if he could be expected any minute to come in the back door. My sister Audrey would have to say grace, which was a much shorter version than that given by Father. Although he wasn’t one to engage in idle chatter at meal time, nonetheless it seemed strange that he wasn’t part of our supper meal. Long after we had eaten, and cleaned up the kitchen and the light of the day would have started to fade, I would go to the window and watch for Father.

Celebrate Canada Day with colourful strawberry cake

T

his red and white strawberry cake is a perfect way to celebrate Canada Day. The recipe came from a very good friend whose name is also Pat and it’s always on the menu on Canada Day. This is one of the best cakes I’ve ever tasted. The ingredients are readily available – frozen strawberries, a white cake mix, strawberry Jello powder, eggs and oil. Topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries, it’s a terrific red and white dessert for July 1. Keep the ingredients on hand though because it’s so easy and so good you’ll want to make it for other occasions too. STRAWBERRY CANADA DAY CAKE

• 1 super-moist white cake mix (enough for 2 layers) • 1 package of frozen strawberries (or 2 cups of frozen berries) • 85 gram package strawberry Jello, or other jelly powder • 1/3 cup vegetable oil • 4 eggs

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff • 1 cup whipping cream • About 12 fresh whole strawberries, hulled and washed Partially thaw the strawberries before you start everything else. Grease and lightly flour a 33-by-20-centimetre cake pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, Jello powder, oil and eggs. Pour off any juice from the berries and add this to the bowl. With an electric mixer, mix the cake batter for two minutes. Turn the bowl occasionally to ensure that the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Fold the partially-thawed berries into the cake batter, then spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 325 F (160 C)

for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Since it’s easiest to serve this cake right from the pan, cool it completely in the pan. The cake can be baked a day ahead. If you make it in advance, wait until an hour or so before serving to finish it off. To finish the cake, in a small bowl, beat the whipping cream until it holds its shape. Spread this over the top of the cake. Arrange the strawberries on top of the whipped cream with the tips pointing up. The berries can also be sliced and arranged so that every slice of cake will have berries on it. Keep chilled until serving time. Serves 12-14.

‘Dave would be really proud’ From DONATION, page 1

“I wanted to give Dave a legacy. I didn’t want his death to be in vain,” Calvert said. She had difficulty coming to terms with his death at first, going through days where she couldn’t get out of bed, but decided to see that something positive came out of the experience. “I thought, I can either sit and feel sorry and let it eat me up, or I can do something about it.” The school where he was

playing ball hockey that evening didn’t have a defibrillator. While she can’t say for sure his life would have been saved if there was one on site, she said there is a chance. “If someone had done this before, maybe Dave’s life would be saved,” she said. Calvert said Donaldson had a lot of friends and acquaintances through work and his volunteer job at Roger’s House. His big group of friends,

combined with the community’s shock of a 38-year-old healthy man suffering cardiac arrest, had people opening their wallets to donate for the cause. “He gave back to the community, and when he died I promised I’d carry it on,” she said, adding a reminder of Donaldson’s volunteering would be difficult to deal with. “I knew I couldn’t handle going to Roger’s House. That would kill me. But I wanted to encourage people to give

back.” She said there’s still enough money set aside to buy four more defibrillators for community centres and schools, and anyone interested in having one can contact her at calmarn@hotmail.com. “Dave would be really proud and I know he’s looking down on us,” Calvert said. “He wouldn’t want the recognition for himself, but he’d be like, ‘Wow, look at the impact you guys made.’ I could just see the grin.”

epicentre of a borer infestation, and the city will be responsbile for the disaster. “This is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Bert van Ingen, who has watched the pile get bigger and bigger as more ash is cut down. “One in four trees in eastern Ontario is ash.” The pile at Trail Road began about two years ago and is now at least 80 metres long and five metres tall in places. Van Ingen said he’s worked in the tree management field and

that even though the ash trees at Trail Road have been cut down, the borers in the trees are still alive. June is a peak period for the flying form of the borers to emerge from the trees and disperse to surrounding areas. “They’ve been coming out for the last three weeks,” he said of the flying borers. At risk are ash trees, which make up an estimated 25 per cent of Ottawa’s urban and rural forests. City statistics show

18,000 hectares of rural forest cover – on both public and private land – is made up of ash. In total, there are 75,000 ash trees on streets and in cityowned parks. Since the emerald ash borer was first found in Ottawa in 2008, the number of ash trees has been reduced by the bugs and by cutting to prevent its spread. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources has advice for anyone dealing with ash borer infestations and the city appears to have disregarded those instructions. The ministry’s website says

LOOK FOR YOUR FLYER IN THE

“trees dead or dying from emerald ash borer should be cut and burned, chipped.” Van Ingen said it was a terrible idea to move the trees from where they were felled, as any movement will certainly spread the bugs further afield. He said south Nepean and nearby parts of the city are almost certainly going to see more borers because of the ash piling up at Trail Road. If the trees had to be moved from where they were cut down, he wants to know why the city didn’t kill the borers as soon as they arrived at Trail Road. He said the borers don’t dig deep into trees, and are only found in the layer just below the bark called the cambium. Removing the bark and the affected cambium layer for burning could have killed the borers, as could burning of the complete trees. Alternately, van Ingen said trees could have been fumigated or contained on arrival at the Trail Road “They’ve just done nothing,” he said. Heather Hamilton says different levels of government “have fumbled their way through” the response to the ash borer problem. Hamilton is the chairwoman of the city’s forests and greenspace advisory committee, which provides advice to city councillors. “There has been big expan-

sion of emerald ash borer and cutting this year,” she said. “The trees have been going to Trail (Road) for a couple of years but not in these quantities (in previous years). Hamilton said the forests and greenspace advisory committee “had some qualms” about storing the cut trees to Trail Road. “We were concerned that it would help to spread the problem.” A city map dated April 2012 shows a few spots around Trail Road where ash borers are located. Hamilton said there’s no way to know if the city’s pile of cut ash is the source of the local hotspots, “but it’s a distinct possibility.” As the pile grows, the number of bugs likely grows too, making their spread more likely. The city is currently seeking proposals from private contractors to deal with the Trail Road ash pile. Simply turning the wood into chips is one possibility, but that would waste the interior of each tree, which is unaffected by the borers. Van Ingen placed the value of the current ash pile at roughly $7.5 million if it was cut into planks, but time is of the essence if the spread of the borers is to be contained. The city’s tree staff was not immediately available to provide details of any proposals received so far from local businesses.

It is recommended that the berries are placed in the coolest spot in your car for your journey home. It is actually best for the berries to go straight home and be placed in a fridge or very cool spot. If you are making jam or freezing the berries - the sooner the better. Pick you berry farms use lots of clean straw between rows of plants to keep berries and pickers clean and dry. Bring along a camera to capture special moments. Most farms have picnic tables, so a snack or lunch is a great way to celebrate a "job" well done. Most Important Tip: Fresh air, lovely red strawberries, beautiful country setting, and happy pickers... it all adds up to a very pleasant summer outing.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a good night is in store this week. The night brings rewards you did not expect. Working hard yields more than financial success.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, there’s not much you can do about the current situation. Complaining about things won’t solve anything, so why waste the breath? Better news is on the horizon.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Trust your instincts, Gemini. Someone who seems like they have your best interests at heart really may have ulterior motives. Heed Capricorn’s sage advice. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you may feel like you’re the only one keeping the ship from sinking. However, this is not the case. Behindthe-scenes work is taking place, too. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, it seems as if drama is always following you. That’s because you tend to be the life of the party or prefer all eyes be on you. Think about being less conspicuous. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it’s hard to keep friends if you are overly critical of the way they live their lives. Remember, no one is perfect — including you. Keep an open mind.

Aries, you could find yourself daydreaming this week, which will only make an important decision even harder to make. You need to focus, or the week will be wasted. Common sense may be what you use to operate, Taurus, but this week a little imagination and spontaneity could be the secret to achieving great success in the next few days. Be careful with whom you share your goals, Gemini. While there just may be a few copycats who want to steal your thunder, you could find a promotion is stolen away as well.

Cancer, explore new ways of doing things this week, especially in your professional life. There’s always room to grow and a new perspective might make things easier.

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!

1. The genus Rhus 2. The 7th planet 3. 17th century courtance 4. Hill site of Rome’s 1st settlement 5. One of the common people 6. Saccharum bengalense 7. Liquorice-flavored liqueur 8. A waterproof raincoat 9. Actress Thurman 11. An inferior dog 13. A disdainful grimace 16. Actress Bacall 18. Moderate to inferior in quality 21. Atomic #86 24. Queen’s Gambit defense 26. Behave in a certain manner 27. The 17th Greek letter

Sometimes the best growth comes from not knowing where you’re heading, Scorpio. While you may want to have a game plan, let creative energy drive you instead. Sagittarius, though right now you can probably get away with saying whatever comes into your mind, it’s better to stick to the subject at hand. Censor yourself a little. Capricorn, a fear of failure may override your ambition. Don’t let these feelings compromise your plan for doing something new and different.

Cosmic fog is clouding your reality, Virgo. It is unlikely you will be able to make a sound decision, so it is best to wait a while before tackling difficult or life-altering projects.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Patience is a virtue, Aries. The best will be in store for you later in the week. There’s not much chance for adventure Monday or Tuesday, but things pick up on Wednesday.

Aquarius, it can be a little challenging to figure out what is bothering you, but be patient. The truth will be revealed in due time. Focus on something else. Pisces, you may have some unfinished business to complete, but it won’t get done right away. Focus on the task at hand.

• Adults, which feast on blood. If you do have a flea-infestation, it is important to treat the pet’s environment as well, to eliminate flea eggs and larvae. There are many over-the-counter products that help solve flea problems such as flea sprays (both for the pet and environment), shampoos, or collars. While the costs may be lower for over-thecounter products ($5 to $30), they often need to be reapplied to solve a flea infestation. Prescription-only solutions such as topical treatments (Advantage, Revolution) or pills (Program, Sentinel) are more expensive and require a vet visit for a prescription. They are usually dispensed in a six-month package, to be applied monthly for the flea season. They are safer, easier and more effective than over-the-counter products. These products often have

additional benefits, such as heartworm protection and tick, lice and mite infestation prevention. Because of their ease of use, their safety, and their effectiveness, they are highly recommended. It is important to read all of the instructions carefully before using any flea-control product. Follow all the instructions. Never use flea productions designed for dogs on cats, and vice versa. When in doubt, contact your veterinarian. Alternatives: Use a flea comb several times a week on all pets. Vacuum frequently, disposing of bags immediately after use. Long grass can host fleas: keep lawns mowed. Wash pet bedding weekly. To protect cats from fleas and ticks, as well as a host of other outdoor hazards, cats should be kept indoors at all times.

Hi! My name is Bama and I am a five year old retired racing greyhound. I recently found my forever home thanks to the Greyhound Supporters of the National Capital Region. My happy demeanour, expressive ears and long legs pique the curiosity of my neighbours. I love to meet them and hear them gush over me. I am so charming that even my feline sister -- who commands the highest respect -- is warming up to me!

Fleas, an annual external parasite, are mostly harmless. The biggest problem caused by fleas is itching. However, some pets or people may be allergic to flea saliva, which causes flea allergy dermatitis (super-itchy spots with hair-loss); young, sick or elderly pets can become anemic from too much blood loss. These wingless insects are capable of jumping long distances. While cat and dog fleas prefer to feast on animal blood, they will turn to a human host if needed. The life-cycle of a flea has four stages: • Eggs, which fall from the host into the environment • Larvae, which live off of the fallen fecal matter of adult fleas found in carpets and in lawns. • Pupae, which is the cocoon. They do not emerge until a host is detected (via warmth /vibration)
