Federal government decision leaves city short on Arts Court funding. – Page 23

News - A development proposal first unveiled to Westboro residents last winter is now officially on the books. The zoning bylaw amendment filed with the city last week concerns the abandoned used car lot on the southeast corner of Richmond Road and Tweedsmuir Avenue, adjacent to the Richmond Plaza Motel and LCBO. The proposal is for a nine-storey, 70-unit residential apartment building with four commercial units on the ground floor. A public “heads-up” meeting held in February brought together the residents of the surrounding community, architect Vince Colizza – also the representative for owner First Capital Realty – and city planning staff. First Capital purchased the land in order to add new, upscale housing stock to its property portfolio, referencing nearby amenities and proximity to rapid transit as its rationale for wanting increased height on the site. The lot, located at the bottom of a slight hill to the south, has a traditional mainstreet zoning designation, which allows for four storeys of height. See DEVELOPER, page 6

Council rolls the dice on two gambling sites Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - City council is doubling down by asking the province if Ottawa can have two gambling sites. While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa – at the Rideau Carleton Raceway – the vote on July 17 means councillors would like to see another casino site in addition to keeping at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway. The move was in response to what Mayor Jim Watson and councillors have been hearing from residents, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who proposed the motion. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson represents the raceway in his ward. He said he brought the largest petition he can recall a politician presenting: a 70,000-signature petition supporting saving jobs at the raceway by keeping gambling there. “There must be a fair and open process for casino bidding,” Watson said, adding that he feels there has been plenty of consultation on the issue already. All members of council supported Tierney’s move to refer the discussion to a special meeting of the

finance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 so public delegates could come speak to the concept of creating two gambling zones in Ottawa. But that doesn’t mean the idea of having two casinos has unanimous support around the council horseshoe. One of the most vocal casino opponents, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, dissented on the parts of the motion asking for two gambling zones for Ottawa. “This is confirmation of a predetermined outcome that we want more gaming in Ottawa,” Deans said, noting that perhaps the city might want to do more consultation on the matter before coming to that conclusion. That’s why she voted in favour of sending the matter to the committee on Aug. 26. The move made other councillors happy, though, because it removed the perception that city council is favouring one community institution – the raceway – over another, like the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre. Sens owner Eugene Melnyk’s pleas to let him bid for a casino at the arena were shot down at a recent committee meeting when councillors voted to limit gambling to the

raceway. Tierney’s motion at the July 17 council meeting could reopen the door for a casino in Kanata or elsewhere in the city. “This somehow devolved (into something) about saving jobs,” said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who was the seconder on Tierney’s motion. “ The debate about gambling resulted in pitting two community resources against each other … This motion restores fairness.” “It gives everyone a chance to be at the table,” said Orléans Coun. Bob Monette, who was among the councillors who wanted to protect the raceway but be fair to other casino bidders at the same time. But it won’t be the first time the mayor has asked for two gambling sites in Ottawa. Watson has previously written to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and provincial officials to ask for a “satellite facility” to complement gaming operations at the raceway. He received no response. That’s different than asking for two gambling sites in the form of two gaming zones for Ottawa, Watson said, so he’s hoping for more success this time around – especially since he now has the support of council. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry was among those who

pointed out that the city has misstepped as it tries to react to a process dictated by the OLG. “This is a lesson in what not to do,” he said. “It’s really hard to turn a big ship after it’s been sailing for a while.” Other councillors wanted city staff to prepare a report on the socio-economic impacts of expanding gambling in Ottawa. Council has already ordered such a report, but it wouldn’t be undertaken until after a casino location had been proposed. If Tierney’s motion was accepted by the committee in August, it would kick off such a study, but only for the raceway location. KnoxdaleMerivale Coun. Keith Agli said he planned to ask for an amendment to ensure the study looks at the possibility of more than one gambling site. Didn’t get your

“We should understand what kind of problem we could be creating,” said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, who is not in favour of a new casino. “In a way, the point is moot to me today about how many casinos we have and where they are located.” Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, who leads the board of health, said there are currently about 13,000 people addicted to gambling in Ottawa. The city has around $740,000 in funding for treatment and prevention programs, but public health officials say Ottawa needs more like $4 million to address the needs of the gambling-addicted population here. “Part of the problem with the expansion of gambling is we’re not taking the addiction issue seriously,” Holmes said.

Public invited to two-part meeting to discuss 1040 Somerset proposal Ottawa West News staff

Community - Residents are invited to attend a public meeting on the rezoning application for 1040 Somerset St. on Monday, July 29. In June, Claridge Homes submitted the necessary applications for the future development of the southwest corner of Somerset and Breezehill Avenue into a 39-storey condo tower with ground-floor retail space. The lot is adjacent to the Somerset Street bridge and O-Train tracks.

Concerns expressed over the 338unit proposal were related to the building’s height and the possible traffic issues raised by the 162 parking spaces that would be located on site. The site is close to Devonshire Public School, and motorists turning onto or off Somerset would face visual barriers caused by blind corners and poor sightlines at the crest of the bridge. The two-part, twin-location meeting is being organized by the office of

Ali and Branden

Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, in collaboration with the applicant and their consultants, city staff, and her office. It will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the actual site of the proposal (currently occupied by CompuCorps), where residents can take in the various elements of the site and ask questions to developers and planners based on their observations. This outdoor, open-house forum ends at 6:30 p.m., followed by a second, formal presentation that will take place upstairs at Tom Brown Arena at 7 p.m. There, the same group of consultants and planners will be available for a question and answer session following the presentation.

Building a community through a developer’s eyes President of Domicile talks neighbourhood negotiations and placemaking at Creative Mornings laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - How development will shape the future of Ottawa’s communities was the topic for the largest event yet for the Creative Mornings speaker series. John Doran, president of local developer Domicile, offered candid insights about the importance of his industry working in partnership with the community during a July 19 event at city hall. The speech came just three days after Domicile narrowly won city council’s approval for a controversial development in Orléans that the surrounding community opposes. “I can understand their frustrations. They moved for a homogeneous single-family environment. They don’t want change,” Doran said about the existing Chapel Hill community. Doran offered insights into how his company goes about its work. “When we look for a piece of land … We ask, ‘what is the neighbourhood telling us?’” he said. “You try and take a hint from that. What does it want to be when it grows up?” Having a “savvy” community association is a boon for his company, Doran said. Especially in Vanier, where Domicile is building the Kavanagh, and in Hintonburg, where the company’s buildings include One3One, the knowledge and involvement of community advocates has strengthened the products Domicile is able to offer, Doran said. “We can feed off them,” he said. In Vanier, the people inspired him, Doran said. “You see this wonderful neighbourhood where people are kicking ass,” he said. When community advocates asked for a donation to improve nearby Optimiste Park in Vanier, Doran was happy to offer up the cash because it helps make the area more attractive for new tenants looking to buy into his building, he said. Same goes in Hintonburg. Community members asked Domicile if anything could be done to liven up a blank wall on its One3One building. That eventually led to Domicile commissioning a piece of public art by Adrian Göllner, entitled Swift, which not only contributes to a lively streetscape, but also makes the building more attractive to buyers, Doran said. But while the involvement of the neighbouring residents is critical, Doran said he often puts more weight into the opinions of professionals like land-use planners. “The pros are most important. If they don’t support it, we are going to lose at the Ontario Municipal Board,” Doran said, referring to the importance of city planners’ opinions. Of least importance in his opinion is the involvement of the local

city councillor, Doran said. Domicile is finding new ways to influence the development of communities by purchasing and managing rental properties with streetlevel storefronts, Doran said. “We target tenants we want … We’re buying up enough buildings so we have an impact on the street,” Doran said. The goal is to attract the kinds of businesses that contribute to making the area desirable for people to move into, he said. Sometimes, that means kicking out a business that doesn’t fit the vision. “This isn’t a democracy,” Doran said. “People don’t like us because if we don’t think you’re good for the street, we won’t renew the lease.” CITY RECOGNITION AND SCHOLARSHIP

The latest Creative Mornings event marked a milestone for the founders after a year of existence for the Ottawa chapter: the city officially recognized the group as a driver of innovation. In a memorandum of understanding, the partnership will see Creative Mornings Ottawa co-founders Michael Grigoriev and Sharif Virani become advisors to the city when it comes to things creative, including arts programs it plans to put into place. “We have to continue to stay in touch to ensure Ottawa not only continues to be a creative city, but to do better,” Mayor Jim Watson said at the event. Virani said the city will act as an enabler and a reference letter when Creative Mornings seeks new venues and funding. In addition to the city recognition and partnership, Creative Mornings Ottawa’s Scholarship for the Inspired was launched at the July 19 event. This year, it will offer a chance for two people of any age or ability level to be awarded a scholarship at the Ottawa School of Art of the School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa. It’s new ground for Creative Mornings, which has chapters in

Franz Klingender, curator for the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, was arrested on July 18 on suspicion of distributing child pornography.

News - A high-profile Ottawa museum curator was arrested on the evening of July 18, charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. Franz Klingender, 59, of Ottawa, was arrested by Peel Regional Police at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport

as he was about to board an international flight. He has since been transported back to Ottawa and made an appearance in court on July 19. Klingender has served as curator for the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum since 1999 and has a background working with agricultural technology exhibits at cultural centres in Canada.

take its course.” St-Onge stated that police have said that, according to the information they have, they have no reason to believe that visitors or employees of the museum have been in any danger. Klingender was released on $10,000 bond and $10,000 surety after appearing in person at the Elgin Street courthouse on July 22.

“The (museum’s) most important commitment is to provide a safe environment for its visitors and employees,” said the statement from Yves St-Onge, the museum’s vice president of public affairs and marketing. “The corporation is deeply troubled by the criminal allegations invoked in the investigation. The Corporation is working closely with the police and will not comment on the investigation at this time, allowing the justice system to

The arrests followed the execution of two search warrants by the Ottawa Police Internet child exploitation unit – one at his east-end home and another at his office. The investigation is continuing, but Klingender is currently facing charges on nine counts of possession of child pornography and seven counts of distributing child pornography. On July 19, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum issued a statement relating to the arrest.

Traditional mainstreets typically allow buildings of four to six storeys, although there are exceptions that can be made for prominent locations. “I have a group that wants to bring rental units to market, which there are a severe shortage of,” said Colizza during the Feb. 7. Members of both the Westboro Community Association and Hampton Iona Community Group pressed Colizza for answers at that meeting, asking why the proposal increased in height from six storeys to nine at the last minute. Colizza said that a previous planned project in Sandy Hill fell through following a height reduction that would have negatively affected the rental rates of the planned units. While Colizza felt the nine-storey height was appropriate for the site, many community members disagreed. Other questions surrounded street interaction and parking garage access. The working proposal outlined during the winter described a building of 72 units, 9,700 square metres of retail

‘Dog Movie Night’ returns Parkdale Park to host film, activities for canines and owners steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Man’s best friend is rarely allowed to see the inside of a movie theatre, which is why the community of Hintonburg decided to move the silver screen outside. On July 27, Parkdale Park will be the site of the second annual Hintonburg Dog Movie Night, created last year as a dog-friendly outing for neighbours and families. The Hintonburg Community Association and Global Pet Foods Hintonburg will again share co-hosting duties. This year’s movie is an appropriate one, featuring the family flick Beethoven. It’s also appropriate for the benefactor of the event: donations will go to support Valley Mastiff Rescue, a non-profit organization that helps find homes for abandoned large-breed dogs. “Last year was kind of like a pilot

project to see how it would work,” said Karla Briones, owner of Global Pet Foods Hintonburg. “We went in with our eyes closed, hoping for the best. It ended up being an awesome night and well-attended, too.” The co-hosts wanted to do something nice for not just Hintonburg, but the surrounding city, as well, said Briones. “There’s not that many dogfriendly events,” she said. Because Parkdale Park doesn’t allow dogs, the two co-hosts had to pay the city a levy in order to use it for four hours. During the evening of July 27, the park will operate as an on-leash park. Dog owners can expect a chance to grab loot bags and win a gift basket, not to mention participate in contests and activities alongside their four-legged friends. Agility trials, a “wiener race” (essentially, a “find the hot dog first” contest), $10 nail clipping, and human food will “That was way to easy!”

all be part of the event. Members from Valley Mastiff Rescue will be on hand at the park to explain their organization’s aims and to dispel misinformation that exists about large dog breeds. Alluding to the film’s subject matter, the group will have a St. Bernard mascot named Cooper -- owned by an employee -- at the park that night. A large dog owner herself, Briones said sizeable canines require a different kind of vetting process when it comes to adoption. In many instances, large dogs are abandoned due to them being too difficult to accommodate in a small apartment, or requiring too much food. “They’re not for every family,” said Briones. “You have to know how to handle a dog like that.” The Hintonburg Dog Movie Night gets started at 7 p.m. with a host of activities for dogs, and the film will come on once darkness falls at 9 p.m. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

Did you WagJag and get in on the savings? “I can't believe I saved so much... ”

Now you see it, soon you won’t

O

nce again, city council has come up with a politically-savvy solution to the question of where to build a casino: build two of them. Last week, council members were slapping each other’s backs and tweeting merrily after they agreed to ask the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation for permission to build two gaming facilities in Ottawa. Never mind that the OLG has already denied such a request before. The provincial gaming authority has said numerous times that Ottawa’s “zone� can only accommodate one casino. Council’s vote is little more than an attempt to assuage the complaints from Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, who is hoping to bring a gaming facility to Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. If the OLG turns down Ottawa’s request for two casinos, the city will move ahead with its default location: the racetrack. This marvelous sleight of hand highlights the fact the casino’s location is a purely political decision made before any studies, consultation or rational debate has taken place. Earlier this month, the city’s finance committee approved sole sourcing the casino, located at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway, a motion proposed and pushed by Mayor Jim Watson. Never mind that the

mayor was flip-flopping on his previous promise to make the selection process an open competition. This was a decision based on political pressure. Lobby groups and supporters of the racetrack made their preference known, likely highlighting the 2014 municipal election date on Watson’s calendar. Melnyk wasn’t exactly thrilled with the mayor’s motion. Lawyer in tow, he showed up at the finance committee meeting and blasted council for not providing a level playing field for bids, suggesting the process wasn’t exactly legal. An independent legal review indicated it is legal. It certainly isn’t how council has conducted business in the past. Usually, the city allows an open bidding process and holds public consultations to figure out if residents want a proposed building/business in the first place. But why destroy a perfectly sound political decision with the principles of good decision making and democratic tradition? The mayor has dealt himself a winning hand, getting council to approve a plan that pleases everyone, yet has small chance of approval. We can only admire the shuffling ability of the mayor, who, like an experienced card shark has deftly maneuvered council to approve his motion. Two casinos? Now you see it, soon you won’t.

A place where you don’t have to be an expert

H

ere’s a scene from a cottage weekend. See if it seems familiar to you. Six guys, probably late teens, are on one of those pontoon boats. A pontoon boat is notoriously hard to manouevre, especially in a wind, and these guys are fishing off it. They’re trying to get through a narrow opening between two islands. The opening is shallow and the bottom is covered with large boulders. The boat is trying to find its way through. To make matters more interesting, at least one of the anglers has caught bottom. So they’re trying to avoid the boulders, get through the opening and also get the guy’s lure off the bottom. One of the guys stands in the bow, watching for rocks. “Stop!� he yells. “Reverse! Reverse!� The boat reverses, clumsily. Somehow the snagged hook is freed and the pontoon boat backs out of the narrow passage and safely into open water. Somehow the proverb: “God helps drunks and little children,� springs to mind, except that these guys weren’t little and they didn’t seem to be drunks either.

is a large amount of enjoyment. What a relief it is, after the exacting demands of the city, to get to a place where it really doesn’t matter how much skill you have. Sure, it’s nice to be good at something. But it’s also nice when it doesn’t matter all that much. Beside a lake, there are no bosses, no alarm clocks, no buses to run after. Mastery of software does not enter into your existence. There are no updates to anything. There is no such thing as a cc, never mind a blind cc. There is no traffic – once you get there. There is very little in the way of selfimprovement. It’s true that at some lakes, children are offered lessons in this or that, but they don’t last long and the kids might learn something they might be able to teach you. Not that it matters if you learn it all that well. The demands of cottage life are quite rudimentary. You have to be able to tolerate the noise children make. You have to be patient and learn to read a story out loud several times in a row. You have to be the kind of person dogs like. Knowing a few simple card games comes in handy. There are some basic safety things you have to learn, but they are

mostly common sense. Even driving a boat, while not all that easy, can be accomplished by a non-expert, because the margin of error on a lake is wider than on a city street. Along the way, you find and settle into the activities at which you can be an expert, that you might have forgotten over the year – taking a nap, telling jokes, eating gooey desserts, singing off-key, walking through the woods, exaggerating, unloading a boat, using a fly-swatter and figuring out whodunit. Easy. The rest of it is eating and sleeping, getting along with people and knowing when to wear a hat.

Fish and chips sale proceeds help troubled youth come up for air Michelle Nash

On July 16th, a group of Hydro Ottawa powerline maintainers and cable jointers generously lent their time and talents to connect the electrical service to the rebuilt Pullen Avenue Group Home, a 10-unit home for people with disabilities. Hydro Ottawa donated the use of their equipment, which included multiple vehicles, while its employees promptly answered the call to volunteer their time for this great cause. Personal Choice Independent Living, which operates the Pullen Avenue Group Home, is a non-profit organization offering housing and support services to people with physical disabilities and provides assisted living services to senior citizens in the community.

News - More than 22,000 orders of haddock made a huge difference recently for Ottawa youth needing treatment for alcohol and drug abuse. A small fish and chips shop in Manor Park called Cats Fish and Chips made a donation of $23,177 to the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre on July 15. Dave Waltham, owner of the shop, said the year-old business pledged last May when it opened to donate a dollar from every sale of haddock “Community has always been important to us,” Waltham said. “We wanted from day one to donate to a local charity.” The Bells Corners resident said he heard about the Dave Smith Youth and Treatment Centre when he was at church one day and decided it was all he needed to decide to help out.

“Donating time and talents for this cause just goes to show how much our employees care about the community they serve,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. This in-kind contribution by Hydro Ottawa and IBEW Local 636 saved the non-profit organization approximately $9,000, which will be redirected to programming. “We’re truly grateful for Hydro Ottawa’s assistance with this project. I’m proud that Ottawa has corporate citizens who are willing to step up to the plate in supporting our mission to build a more inclusive society,” said Suzanne Béland, Executive Director of Personal Choice Independent Living.

the youth who come for a dime and the government won’t give us any money for the buildings,” Smith said. “When people make this kind of investment, locally, the money stays here and this donation, at this time, was unbelievable.” The centre helps young people aged 13-21 who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. It began, Smith said, 23 years ago with a day-treatment centre on Bronson Avenue and has since expanded to a 10-bed residential facility in Carp and a 14bed residential facility in Carleton Place. The new building would feature 30 beds in one location. Smith said the new location, which would replace the existing two, would give counselors currently travelling between the different locations more time with clients. McGill said the board has so far raised $700,000 for the new building and the plan is to raise the remainder and begin construction in the next two to three years. “The donation is critical to us operating,” McGill said. “Substance abuse is an issue amongst youth and really touches every corner of our community, they literally come from every family, every circumstance in Ottawa and the fact that we can offer a place to go is important.” Waltham said the shop is going to continue to donate to the centre, but will soon put their efforts towards another local charity. “We are thinking of expanding to different charities, there are lots of small charities that need help,” he said.

City votes for Main Street to be made ‘complete’ Council approves reducing roadway to two lanes, adding cycling track Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A heated discussion about making Main Street “complete” ended in the result Old Ottawa East residents were looking for: reduced car lanes, added cycling lanes and wider sidewalks. The two-lane, “complete street” makeover for Main Street was approved by council on July 17, but construction won’t get underway until August of next year, after the detailed design is completed. The ward’s councillor, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, said council’s 18-6 vote was a huge win for the community. “Main Street has degraded as a place to live, a place to walk, a place to own a business or develop,” he said. “This will be a boost for businesses and development.” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley has been outspoken in his objection to the completestreet makeover. He worried that approving the format would set the stage for city staff to recommend a complete street for arterial roads and main streets in the suburbs, like his community. “I’m supportive of this type of complete street when it’s within a community,” Hubley said, adding that main streets and arterial roads are “not streets we can restrict traffic on.” Mayor Jim Watson was also in support of the revamp

because he said it will slow down traffic and make the area safer, which are the top issues he hears about from residents across the city. “This is a very progressive thing to do,” the mayor said, adding he hopes to see more “complete streets” in other communities. Transportation committee chairman Keith Egli, councillor for Knoxdale-Merivale Ward, has been a champion for the complete-street makeover. He said it “is not an inflexible template.” “A complete street in Kanata might not look at all like a complete street in Coun. Chernushenko’s ward,” Egli said. “There are criteria, but it’s a flexible approach to dealing with roads. “This is our first entry as a city into that innovative city design,” he said. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans was opposed to Main Street’s makeover as a complete street, but she said she’s also not against the idea of a complete street. “In the right place, at the right time, I do think this is something we should be pursuing,” she said. “I don’t think this is the right time to be removing arterial roads.” Deans’ south-end residents who commute by car could face a longer commute – or be forced to find a different route – since a rebuilt Main Street will have less traffic capacity at the busiest times.

Project manager Ron Clark from Delcan, the consulting firm the city hired for the project, said Main Street can currently handle 1,200 vehicles in both directions per hour in peak times. When the street is rebuilt, it could handle 900 vehicles in the same period with no traffic delays, or the same 1,200-vehicle volume as today, but with a three-minute delay. “It’s giving more mobility options. It’s not saying you have to walk or cycle,” said Chernushenko, who has a reputation as a cycling advocate and environmentalist. “ It’s saying that if you were too scared, now you can.” Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder was completely opposed to the idea. She said she doesn’t want an assumption ever, or at least in the next decade, that the city would put a similar type of complete street in a suburban area. Harder and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume said they hoped getting a complete street for Main Street would make Old Ottawa East residents more willing to accept the Alta Vista Transportation Corridor – a new bridge from the hospital area across the Rideau River, connecting to Lees Avenue in Old Ottawa East. But Hume also said he didn’t think the issue was as “dramatic” as other councillors made it out to be. “I don’t think it’s as drastic as going on a road diet or any of the other rhetoric surrounding it,” Hume said. “You’re not going to notice the function change. I fundamentally believe that. We’ve seen it happen on other roads.

Submitted/City of Ottawa

City council approved a ‘complete street’ vision for Main Street that will see it reduced from four vehicle lanes to two and include the addition of cycling lane tracks, more on-street parking and wider sidewalks.

Father’s patience runs out for Sunday picnic

A

ll Mother needed for an excuse to have a picnic was a sunny and hot Sunday afternoon – after church, of course. Father thought the whole idea was nonsense when you could spend the afternoon having a little nap in the grape arbour. “That once-a-year church picnic is enough for me,” he lamented. Father’s resting in the summer often moved him from the rocking chair in the kitchen with his feet on the oven door of the Findlay Oval to the grape arbour, where an old lawn chair and the twoseater swing sat in the cool haven of the overhanging grape leaves. But of course, as for the Sunday picnic, Mother overruled and we five children were thrilled beyond belief: we would be spending the afternoon on the banks of the Bonnecherre River. It was a hefty walk to get to the river, overloaded as we were with baskets of lunch, bats and balls, our swim suits and towels, Mother’s newspapers, scrap books and diaries. I always had to take at least one doll with me too. As long as Father had his pipe and a good supply of tobacco that was about all he was interested in lugging down to the river. The cook

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories stove would be allowed to go out on Saturday night. That meant a cold breakfast, which further annoyed Father, who didn’t consider any meal worth pulling a chair up to the table for unless it included meat and potatoes. But Mother let the stove die down because that meant a nice cool kitchen when we got back from our picnic on Sunday, a rare treat from a stove that blasted out blistering heat waves 24 hours a day, every other day of the week. As soon as we got back from church, and while the boys and Father tended to the last-minute chores in the barn, Audrey and Mother would haul bowls of food out of the ice box that had been prepared the night before. This meant hard boiled eggs, mashed fine, sliced cold pork and roast beef, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, and of course, a slab cake smothered in brown-sugar icing. It didn’t take long for thick sandwiches, sliced vegetables and a huge sealer of iced

tea to be ready to pack into 11-quart baskets, all wrapped in an ample supply of clean flour-bag tea towels – we had enough food to feed half of Renfrew County! We would pile as much as we could on the little wagon with wobbly tin wheels, which I used to hitch our old collie dog to so my dolls could be pulled around the yard. It was better than lugging the heavy baskets down to the river. We always went to the same spot on the Bonnechere, where the old maple tree had long since fallen across the narrowest part of the river and where there was a wide grassy bank and more trees. My sister Audrey spread out two blankets and covered the little wagon with another to keep the lunch as cold as possible. Wearing short pants for bathing suits, my brothers were in the water almost as soon as we hit the river, Mother had propped herself against a tree with her books

and papers spread around her, Audrey and I hid behind a tree and stripped off our clothes and got into two suits Aunt Freda had sent us from Chicago. They were scratchy, made of pure wool, and as soon as they were wet, went as hard as cement, but they were all we had. Father walked around with his pipe hanging out of his mouth, not looking at all pleased. He asked Mother when she planned on taking out the lunch, lamenting that what he had for breakfast couldn’t really be called a decent meal. Mother said lunch was a long way off, and he might as well settle down and have a little nap. The afternoon wore on. Emerson said he didn’t care if we ever went back home. The three boys had water fights, tried to catch fish with a makeshift pole and jumped off the fallen tree to see who could land the farthest. Audrey was reading her books borrowed from the Renfrew Library and I was playing with my doll, pretending she was a brand new baby and this was her first outing on a picnic. Well, Father never did settle down for a nap. He walked the shoreline, he lit and relit his pipe, and when he finally sat down with his

back against a tree, he never took his eyes off the blanket covering the lunch. “Think I’ll head back to the barns to check on that cow that didn’t look too good this morning,” he said. Even though we had yet to eat the lunch, I knew Father wouldn’t be back, and I knew too the cow had little to do with it. When the sun was heading for the west and we had eaten the lunch, the boys had dried off, and everything was packed onto the little red

We opened the kitchen door to blazing heat and there was Father sitting at the old pine table. He hadn’t bothered taking off his straw hat and in front of him was a dinner plate piled high with fried potatoes, slabs of salt pork and enough buttered bread to feed a family of six. The white granite tea pot was boiling on the stove and Father had opened a jar of preserves and they weren’t in a fruit nappy, but in a soup bowl.

Father walked around with his pipe hanging out of his mouth, not looking at all pleased. He asked Mother when she planned on taking out the lunch, lamenting that what he had for breakfast couldn’t really be called a decent meal. wagon, Father still hadn’t come back. Mother assured me he would be just fine. “He just doesn’t like picnics,” she said. We gathered up our belongings and started for home. I saw it before anyone else – there was smoke coming out of the chimney over our house. Mother just let out a long and laboured sigh when I pointed it out to her.

Ottawa Valley Tours

“Well, so much for a nice cool kitchen,” was all Mother said. Finally, Father stopped shovelling in his food long enough to look up from his plate. “A man can’t be expected to work from dawn to dusk and survive on a sandwich and a piece of cake,” he said, taking another long slurp of hot tea from his saucer.

Teaching children the joy of community gardening Aspiring green thumbs learn the how-to’s of food production Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Children are invited to get their hands dirty in Brewer Park’s community garden this weekend as part of a workshop for aspiring green thumbs. Just Food is hosting the event to get children aged 6 to 12 gardening and to teach them about how food grows. The workshop begins at 1 p.m. at Brewer Park Community Garden on July 28. Just Food organizer Agathe Moreau said the event will be full of activities to encourage the young gardeners. “The event is all about learning through games with different activities and it’s a lot of fun,” Moreau said. “It’s good for the kids to be out in the garden out in the neighbourhood.” This is the third and last public workshop Just Food has organized for the summer. The other two events took place in Kanata and Old Ottawa East.

The non-profit organization’s goal is to make healthy food available to everyone in the Ottawa region. It also helps run many different events at community gardens, helps communities set up their own gardens and runs workshops about things like gardening soils, planting techniques and food preservation. The Brewer Park event runs for an hour and a half, with activities revolving around the importance of local food production, pollination and the role bugs play in the growth of fruits and vegetables. It will also look to show the value of community participation. “This will teach them all the fun parts of gardening, basic biology about plants, the importance of bugs, different kinds of soil and give them a better sense of where their food comes from,” Moreau said. The program has been running since 2008, offering five workshops for children last year across the city. This year, the organization will only host two public events, with smaller events taking place over the summer as part of summer camp programming. Moreau said parents can drop their children off for the duration of the workshop, but are also welcome Michelle Nash/Metroland to stay and participate.

Poilievre to tackle Senate, electoral reform Cabinet posting a first since being elected in 2006 Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre will tackle some of Canada’s most controversial topics now that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has named him Minister of State for Democratic Reform. Poilievre was one of eight new faces to join Harper’s cabinet on Monday, July 15 in the biggest cabinet shake-up since the Conservatives took power in 2006. As part of his new portfolio, Poilievre, 34, will pick up where Edmonton MP Tim Uppal left off on Senate reform and improvements to the Elections Canada Act. “Not necessarily in that order,” Poilievre said Monday, although he allowed that Senate reform is large on the minds of Canadians in the wake of the Senate expense scandal. “The Senate is a very high profile subject these days. We are committed to reforming it, to make it elected with lim-

ited terms. And if that doesn’t happen we want it to be abolished.” Poilievre said the Conservative government has been working towards Senate reform since it was first elected seven years ago, although no legislation has passed the House of Commons to that effect, even though the government has held a majority of seats in the House of Commons since the 2011 elecetion. “The nature of the Senate is in part a question for the Constitution and even a majority government can’t amend the Constitution by itself,” Poilievre said. The government has asked the Supreme Court to clarify exactly what powers the government has to reform the Senate; answers which Poilievre expects to receive by the end of 2014. “I think the Supreme Court reference will be a seminal event in the revolution of the Senate. It will inform Parliament about what is possible.”

The most recent Senate reform legislation introduced in 2011 called for elected senators and limited nine-year terms. Poilievre said Harper has tried to get around the Constitution’s senator appointment conventions by honouring election results if a province decides to hold Senate elections in conjunction with provincial or municipal votes. “So far only one province has taken us up on that offer, and that’s Alberta,” he said. Poilievre was hesitant to expand on Elections Canada reforms since no legislation has yet to be brought forward. “We’re listening to Canadians to see how best we can protect our electoral system,” he said. Poilievre does know he will oversee the planned boundary changes for ridings across the country, which will likely include a new riding in southwest Ottawa to account for rising populations in Barrhaven and Kanata. “We have an elections body

that has put together a revised version with dozens of new seats and that will change the political make-up in this country and reflect the population growth,” he said. Despite an exciting day on Parliament Hill, Poilievre said he was humbled to take on his new role. “I come from an average Canadian neighbourhood, a middle class community, son of two teachers,” he said. “For me it’s just exciting that anyone who works hard and believes in a cause can have the opportunity to contribute.” The MP for the south end of Ottawa, who has served the Nepean-Carleton riding for nine years, also said his constituents won’t be forgotten. “I intend to continue to be a very strong presence in the community,” Poilievre said. “I’m going to be door knocking a lot this summer and attending a lot of events. So constituents will see me doing the same kind of work.”

Algonquin expands teaching to Saudi Arabia Ottawa West News staff

News - Having won an international bid to operate a new English language campus in Saudi Arabia, Algonquin College will welcome its first cohort of Jazan students this September. The campus, to be located in the city of Jazan, Saudi Arabia, will operate in a publicprivate partnership with Saudi Arabia’s equivalent of Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. At capacity, the campus is expected to be home to 2,000 students and generate annual revenues of more than $25

million. The new campus will offer 10 programs in accounting, marketing, electrical engineering technician, mechanical technician, motive power technician, truck and coach technician, architectural technician, construction engineering technician, facilities technician, and heating, refrigeration and air conditioning technician. In addition, the college will offer a foundation year focused on English competency and study skills. The Saudi government is investing more than $1 billion in a new polytechnic education model. Signing contracts with

a group of leading institutions, each with a history of delivering high quality hands-on, applied education and training, the 110,000 student pilot, if successful, is expected to be expanded to 450,000 students. Algonquin has previous experience in Saudi Arabia, having provided the government run Jazan Economic City Polytechnic with both curriculum and faculty. This new partnership will rename the existing campus the Algonquin Jazan College of Excellence and see Algonquin manage all campus operations including staff and student recruitment, program

development and delivery, quality assessment, college services, and facilities maintenance. The college will be maleonly. Algonquin College’s separate bid for a femaleonly college was unsuccessful though there are four female campuses opening in Saudi Arabia this fall. “Opening the new campus in Saudi Arabia is a significant milestone for Algonquin and will showcase to the world the quality of the Ontario education system,” said Algonquin president Kent MacDonald in a press release. “Ontario is a world educa-

tion leader and Algonquin is proud to be on the cutting edge of Canadian institutions connecting countries and students around the world with our unique approach to polytechnic training.” Algonquin joins four other international institutions, including TQ/Pearson (U.K.), Laureate International (U.S.), Mondragon (Spain), and Nescott (U.K.), which were selected to manage 10 colleges as part of the Saudi Arabian Colleges of Excellence pilot program. Once finalized, Saudi Arabia will join a growing list of countries where students can

take an on-campus Algonquin College program, which currently includes China, India and Montenegro. Kuwait is expected to join that list in 2014. The college also attracts more than 1,000 international students to its Ontario campuses each year. A representative of the Saudi Technical and Vocational Training Corporation did not return a request for comment regarding how many student spaces administered across Saudi Arabia are designated male only, and how many are female only, and if the government is dealing with any inequities.

Nepean Kiwanis look to bigger, better car show

River access, impact on view important, NCC says

Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Organizers of the Nepean Kiwanis Charity Car Show are looking to build on previous years’ successes. Scheduled for Aug. 17, the fourthannual show will once again take over the vast Bells Corners Loblaws parking lot at the corner of Robertson Road and Moodie Drive, with classic vehicles converging from across the National Capital Region. This year’s recipient of car show proceeds will be the Nepean Rideau Osgoode Community Resource Centre. “Last year we saw about 170 vehicles and a good number of people,” said Kiwanis club member Gord Clark.

“Notwithstanding today’s decision by Ottawa city council of the Richmond Underground as the preferred corridor for the light rail, the decision as whether to build or not on federal lands in this corridor will remain with the National Capital Commission board of directors,” the news release reads. The NCC’s board will focus on two key concerns when it looks to make a decision, the news release continues: unimpeded, continuous access to the land along the Ottawa River and minimal visual impact on the landscape quality and the experience of people who go there. Half an hour later, Mayor Jim Watson responded in an open letter sent to NCC board chairman Russell Mills and the media. Watson assured Mills the city will continue to work with the NCC on the route. “We fully appreciate and understand that the NCC is in a position to establish conditions,” Watson wrote. “We are confident that we have identified a budget and an approach that can accommodate every aspect of the NCC’s motion as design progresses.” City staff has already proposed changes aimed at pleasing the NCC that will inflate the bill by $80 million. The budget for the project, which now stands at $980 million, cannot stand to get any larger or it will impact the city’s ability to tackle other transit projects on its list, said city treasurer Marion Simulik. “Every time we whittle a dollar away, it eats into that $4 billion envelope for rail till 2031,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. During a transportation committee meeting on July 5, deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said staff has not done a “deep enough analysis” to come up with a price tag for burying the remaining 500 m. “That’s what we’d propose to do in the next phase,” she said. Schepers did say there is a significant difference in cost between keeping the rail line above ground or burying it. Per kilometre, it costs approximately $40 to 60 million to build on the surface, but that number balloons to $100 to 150 million per kilometre for underground rail.

“We’re hoping for a decent turnout – numbers have gone up substantially from our first two years.” Clark said fellow club members are spreading the word while attending other Ottawa-area car shows. Classic car owners looking to show off their rides can show up and register on site for a $10 fee. Dash plaques will be provided, and goodie bags and door prizes will be available, along with a 50/50 draw. Trophies will be handed out following judging. The Nepean Kiwanis have enjoyed lots of local business support since forming the charity event. Clark said organizers have brought on several new sponsors this year, including Myers Hyundai, which will bring a display of several of the brand’s sportier models.

Arts Court plan moves forward despite lack of funding Federal government rejects request for $9M needed for project Laura Mueller

time. This moment in her life changed her way of thinking, and now she’s looking at the world in a very different way, and learning to “dance in the rain”. This life-changing moment became fodder for a short story that eventually was published in the latest “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book.

Arts - The city pushed forward with plans to redevelop Arts Court last week despite the federal government rejecting its request for $9 million needed to build the project. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he found out the feds tossed out the funding request by reading an Ottawa Citizen story about the letter, which was sent to deputy city manager Steve Kanellakos on July 9. “I’m disappointed because we’ve asked for $9 million. To be brutally honest, we didn’t expect $9 million, but we expected something,” Fleury said. “To turn around and say ‘Ottawa, don’t come to the feds for all your priorities’ – we’re not.” The project is still listed at the top priority in the city’s arts, culture and heritage action plan and it’s the only request the city made under the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund more than a year ago, Fleury said. The letter from Marie Moliner, regional executive director of Canadian Heritage, says that the city’s $9-million request amounts to a third of the total annual budget for that nationwide fund. Fleury, Mayor Jim Watson and city staff were set to discuss next steps and strategies for re-opening the funding discussion.

News - Moving forward has never come easy for Catina Noble. The Riverview Park resident admits she had always been a “cup halfempty” type of person. One day, she stumbled upon a short story in the best-selling “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Attitude Adjustment” book, which would ultimately

lift her spirits. Noble, who has always loved to write, and recently published some of her poetry, decided she needed to adjust her own attitude and rebuild a relationship with a family member. A few years ago, Noble had experienced a falling out with her cousin, but wasn’t sure what it was about. Noble was later invited to her cousin’s wedding, but was unable to go due to another family commitment.

She kept waiting for her cousin to apologize, but for what, she didn’t know. Noble realized she missed her friendship, and one day sat down to write a letter to her. A week later, the phone rang. It was Jenny calling to thank her for the letter. The two reconciled and spoke on the phone for over an hour. A few weeks ago, Noble met Jenny’s husband and children for the first

Community - The Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is preparing to take part in an Asian-themed night market, to be held on Aug. 9 and 10. Wen Jean Ho, founder of the support centre based in Kanata, said the inaugural Ottawa Summer Carnival event is an educational opportunity, as well as a chance for people to come out and have a little fun. “It’s going to be very interesting,” said the Barrhaven resident. “It will be fun for the whole public.” The mandate of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is to introduce Asian culture, said Ho, and the group will have a booth at the evening festival. The activities at

the booth, however, are a secret, she added. A night market is a street bazaar, featuring vendors selling goods at reduced prices, operating outdoors in the evening. “It’s going to be vibrant,” said Jezamine Lee Blomqvist, who volunteers with the Kanata Chinese support group and lives in Nepean. “The first thing is food (but) they sell everything … This will be a gastronomic experience.” The Ottawa Summer Carnival will be held in the parking lot of the T&T Supermarket, located at 224 Hunt Club Rd., in south Ottawa. Organized by the Federation of Ottawa Chinese Canadian Organizations, an umbrella association of more than 35 Chinese groups across the city, the free event will feature Asian street foods, entertainment, fun and games, a car show, contests, performances and merchandise vendors. Jimmy Wen, manager of T&T, said he’s excited to be part of the first Ottawa Summer Carnival in the city, hav-

Wen said he’s expecting around 20 food booths, more than 60 vendors in total, and around 10,000 people at the night bazaar. It’s a chance for people “to learn about different cultural things and enjoy the celebration,” said Yoyo Tsai, with T&T. “We just want to give them more different, new things to try.” The carnival takes place on Aug. 9 from 6 p.m. to midnight and Aug. 10 from 4 p.m. to midnight.

City hoping to raise $3.5M from sale of air rights Continued from page 23

“This project needs to happen, but I don’t know at this point,” Fleury said. “It leaves me with a lot of questions, a lot of doubt. I’m still confident that in the end we’ll find some way of getting in done – maybe not in the same timeline.” Those questions went unanswered even as the city’s planning committee was asked to support rezoning the site to pave the way for the future private-public partnership redevelopment. The committee unanimously approved that rezoning, including permitting a 23-storey tower at the corner of Waller and Daly streets, on July 16. The city is hoping to make $3.5 million to put towards the project by selling the air rights for that tower, which could become a hotel, condo tower or offices, depending on a proposal from an interested private builder. A couple residents of a neighbouring Claridge condo tower spoke to the committee to warn them against adding

more people into an area that’s already packed with people and noisy trucks. “You guys don’t understand…” an emotional Graham Gleddie shouted at the committee. “It’s a hellish nightmare of noise from truck traffic.” Gleddie has been living in his condo for four years and said he didn’t think the city could allow more people to live or sleep in hotel rooms in the area until it removes the heavy-truck route from the downtown core. Another resident from that condo building pointed out that there is nothing stopping a private developer from coming back to the city to ask for an even taller tower. But the city’s planning manager, John Smit, said the city wouldn’t approve that change and the Ontario Municipal Board would probably reject an appeal because it wouldn’t match the city’s planning bible – it’s Official Plan. The $36-million expansion would also include a large addition to the existing Arts Court building – a heritage

complex that used to be home to the courthouse and registry office. One of the architects the city hired for the project, Mitchell Hall, said the new Ottawa Art Gallery portion would be a 3,260 square-metre “elegant box” tucked in along the existing north-south stone wall that divides the site. The city is looking at having the gallery building serve as a billboard for art, perhaps using projection or a digital sign, Hall said. A 250-seat screening room, a café and a black-box theatre on Waller Street for the University of Ottawa is also part of the concept. The university will pay $5 million for that portion while the city and other potential partners such as the federal government would cover the remaining $31 million. Open space, seating areas and sculpture courts would buffer the new buildings along Daly, leading into the main entrance, and along Waller. The adjacent former jailhouse is now a privatelyowned hostel and not up for redevelopment.

Submitted

A 23-storey privately owned tower and a box-shaped Ottawa Art Gallery are the most striking features in the city’s Arts Court expansion. The designs were presented at a public meeting on May 14.

Heritage group, neighbours question New Edinburgh proposal Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A new infill conversion proposed in New Edinburgh has drawn the ire of neighbours and the community’s heritage committee. The proposal will see the home at 308 MacKay St. be converted into a three-storey, four unit condominium featuring below-grade parking and balconies. Area residents attended a special New Edinburgh Community Alliance heritage committee meeting on July 10 to discuss the proposal. Heritage committee member, Joan Mason said the group will fight the proposal which, in their opinion, does not comply with the city’s definition of intensification. “The mass of this new complex does not reflect the other buildings in the area, the balconies do not respect the immediate neighbours and we don’t believe she (property owner Linda Chapman) is saving the house,” Mason said at the meeting. The alliance heritage committee made a formal submission to the city’s committee

of adjustment concerning the property which stated the community supports intensification and believes the site in question is an appropriate spot for intensification, but does not agree with this particular proposal, citing outstanding questions such as what will be the effect on surrounding properties from the excavation of the underground parking lot, a lack of a hydrology report and issues surrounding the removal of a mature tree on the property line. The lack of a shade study is also mentioned. Neighbours who attended the special meeting on the proposal, including immediate neighbour Christopher Hamilton, did not agree and questioned whether the build was in fact a conversion. “This is not a renovation or a conversion,” Hamilton said at the meeting. “I think she is going to knock it down.” In an interview, Chapman said the existing home’s structure will remain intact and serve as main walls for the new build. The existing basement will become the parking garage. Chapman, who is an architect, added she is not

A proposal to convert this home at 308 MacKay St. into a three-storey condominium has some immediate neighbours and area residents upset in New Edinburgh. concerned the home will fall down during construction. “It’s a matter of proper construction, but it will be fine,” she said. “Existing house the structure is there and is remaining.” On July 17, Chapman’s proposal went to the com-

mittee of adjustment, where it is seeking variances for the property. A request from Hamilton to postpone the meeting because of concerns regarding the plans to demolish Chapman’s portion of a shared semi-detached garage was granted to discuss the

plans with other neighbours. Chapman said she has already planned to meet with Hamilton about the garage. “I am entitled to take down my garage and the garage is semi-detached, and there is a party wall that separates the two,” Chapman explained. “It

just comes down to a need of discuss how we make sure his remaining garage wall is sturdy.” Although the heritage committee is involved in representing the neighbours regarding the proposal, this particular property is not in New Edinburgh’s designated heritage district. Chapman said she took that into consideration when she was purchasing property in the area. “It’s a very modern aesthetic,” she said. “I have chosen a modern aesthetic, because it looks great and I think people want that. I purposely bought in the non-heritage area because of that.” Mason said she was granted the opportunity to meet with city staff about the proposal and said she is hopeful this will help sort out some of the community’s larger concerns. According to Chapman, who has owned the property for the past three years, she has met with neighbours about her plans and fully intends to continue having an open conversation about the development.

Thanks to her story published in the best-selling book Chicken Soup, Riverview Park resident Catina Noble has learned the power of positive thinking. This theme rang true in her own story. As she writes in “Chicken Soup”, “Just repeating that sentence over and over again makes me feel more positive and changes how I feel and

react to situations that I am not normally happy with.” When she called and told her cousin about the story being published, Jenny was ecstatic. Having this story pub-

An avid reader of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series, Noble learned the publisher was on the brink of creating a new book entitled “Reader’s Choice”, in celebration of the series’ 20th anniversary, and decided to enter one of her stories last January. In March, she received an email from “Chicken Soup” co-author D’ette Corona telling her she had a good chance of having her story published in the book. A proof of her story, with minimal edits, soon arrived in the mail. In April, she got the final answer: yes. Noble was overjoyed, as she has never had anything published in a book of this scale. “I was telling everybody, but I felt like an idiot after because I thought, ‘What if it doesn’t actually happen?’” she said. The message of the story was a resounding one for Noble: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

about 100 different written materials published in a variety of publications. Personally, this experience has taught Noble much about herself. “I’ve learned that persistence does pay off, and sometimes you don’t know what the other person is thinking or going through,” she said.

from Carleton University, Noble hopes to one day publish another short story (or two) in a “Chicken Soup” book. She says she has about a dozen pieces ripe for the picking for the novel. She’s also looking forward to publishing a collection of poetry. In total, Noble has had

Old school Pioneer Day attracted a number of visitors from across the city to the Osgoode Township Museum on July 20. The free event featured bread baking in a clay oven, quilt making and antique farm equipment, as well as live music, a barbecue and strawberry social, games and contests, a craft tent, and displays from local artists. Here, Robin Cushnie, a Centertown resident and manager of the Osgoode Township Museum, gets into the spirit of Pioneer Days by having a pirate ship painted on her face. The event, held on July 20, features a mix of the old and the new.

behaviour through education and referrals. The fire department teaches fire safety, while Crossroads Children’s Centre, a mental health centre, steps in if the child or teen has mental health issues, he said. The intervention program was developed back in the 1980s, said Cutler, following in the footsteps of similar programs run in Toronto. “We typically deal with kids between the ages of six and 12,” said Cutler, adding

the youths are usually referred by police or parents. More often than not, fire prevention officers will sit down with the whole family to discuss general fire safety tips, including having an escape plan and keeping fire sources (such as matches) out of reach from young fingers. “It’s strictly an educational program, but there are often family issues going on at the same time,” he said. “Sometimes it’s just a matter of getting mom and dad on board with fire safety tips, and telling them how to reduce access to light sources, and to teach kids to not to be afraid of firefighters.” As children grow older, crimes could become more serious, said Cutler, “There is the potential they are involved in more crime at that age,” he said. The program takes up to three sessions and ends up being a positive experience for everyone involved, he said. The program’s success rate is very high, said Cutler, and proves to be a lesson learned

for the teen. “I’ve never had a kid come back for a second time,” he said. “So it’s a good success rate.” The greater percentage of children and teens who sets fires are male, Cutler added. “If a parent is worried about a son or a daughter, we will do an assessment,” he said. The program is confidential and free. Based on the information presented, a specific educational strategy will be modified to address the fire setting behaviour. Upon completion of the program, the child will be presented with a certificate of achievement on behalf of OFS. According to the fire department, studies have shown that 81 per cent of children will re-offend if not involved in an intervention of some kind. For more information on the program, please contact the firepreventiongeneral@ottawa.ca or call 613-580-2658.

Airport Parkway Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge – Construction Update

Most of the formwork was removed from the newly poured, upper concrete tower. Once the formwork and supports are removed, the contractor will remove the work platform and all of the scaffolding that surrounds the tower. Over the coming weeks, after the scaffolding and formwork for the main tower are removed, the contractor will complete the remaining formwork for the main deck. Concurrently, the contractor is completing other work on-site which includes finishing the rubbing of the existing poured concrete surfaces with cement mortar, prefabricating the parapet wall forms, placing the expanded polystyrene light weight fill material and backfilling earth under the west approach structure. I can also advise you that City operational staff and external engineers are undertaking a final review of the design to ensure that it meets all of the required design standards. Please know that I am advocating on behalf of all taxpayers to ensure that City staff and the external contractor and designer are held accountable for their respective roles and legal responsibilities. I will continue to closely monitor the progress on this project to ensure that this connection is built safely and to the highest quality standards.

Just For Fun continues at Kanata gallery Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Arts - The fun continues at the Kanata Civic Art Gallery throughout the month of August, as artist Patricia Brander takes the helm. The Greely resident is the second feature artist of the “Just for Fun and Colour Me Kids” exhibit, which launched in June and runs until Aug. 29. Morgan’s Grant artist Amie Talbot was featured throughout July. “You can’t get more different in terms of people,” said Brander about her acrylic abstract artwork and Talbot’s coloured pencil drawings. She signed up to be featured in the “Just for Fun” exhibit because “it best represents what I do,” she said. Brander’s work features a kaleidoscope of colours and textures. “I use a lot of paint. You can make it very thick,” said Brander, who works for high-

tech company Irdeto Canada Corporation in north Kanata. “I found this a great way to relax … because it’s so much fun.” Although she’d always had an interest in art, Brander was first bit with a real interest around age 12. She started her artistic career using oils, watercolours and pastels, creating landscapes, and studying a “bit of art.” She said she got the creative gene from her father, who had a decorative wrought iron business in Nova Scotia and had the ability to create “anything and everything.” Brander began to gravitate more towards abstract painting because it allowed her to work more with thoughts and moods, rather than objects. “It’s a feeling or emotion that I operate on, or a memory,” she said. “I find it more fun and there’s more freedom to express (with abstract painting). I find with this it’s very freeing in a way.”

Greely artist Patricia Brander is the feature artist for the month of August during the Kanata Civic Art Gallery’s ‘Just for Fun and Colour Me Kids’ exhibit. Her abstract artwork features a kaleidoscope of colours and textures. As well, various people can find different meanings within the same abstract piece. “People can decide what it means to them based on how they’re feeling,” said Brander. Brander joined the Kanata Civic Art Gallery two years ago, after another member approached her at an art show and asked if she’d ever considered joining. “It’s fun. I enjoy it,” said Brander of the organization.

“These people are great.” Her tools of the trade include a palette knife and containers of paint, which she squeezes directly onto the canvas. “I’ll just create this thing directly on the canvas,” said Brander. “It’s easy to manipulate … if you don’t like something and want to take it off, you can do that.” If the creative mood strikes her, Brander said she can

finish a piece in a morning, something that’s not possible when working with other mediums because she’d have to wait for the paint to dry. And sometimes the finished product is a surprise, even to her. “I didn’t really know how (one painting was) going to look until it was done,” said Brander, adding, “When it’s done, it’s perfect because that’s how it’s supposed to be.” Children’s artwork is also

being showcased alongside the “Just For Fun” exhibit. The young artists had the option of choosing from two templates to colour or a blank page they could fill with their own art. The Kanata Civic Art Gallery is located in the Mlacak Centre at 2500 Campeau Dr., and is open while the building undergoes construction. A temporary entrance is set up at the arena, to the left of the main doors.

News – A new conference centre and banquet facility is slated for construction on the corner of Uplands Drive and Hunt Club Road. The conference centre will provide meeting space for community groups and businesses in the south Ottawa area, said Anu Sohal, owner of Linden Developments, which has been working on the approximately $12-million project for nearly three years. “We feel it will be a great addition to the community because it will be ideally suited for weddings, business expos and conferences, private banquets and special galas, and will be able to be configured for large or small gatherings of up to 1,000 to 1,200 guests.” The proposed one-storey building will contain 1,449-square-metres of meeting space, with 155 surface parking spaces.

Loading docks will be constructed at the back of the facility and screened from Uplands Drive and Gibford Drive. Sohal says the company anticipates construction to begin in early 2014, and is hoping to open the conference centre late in 2014. The developer hopes the conference centre will be the premier banquet venue in Ottawa with a simple and modern décor, outfitted with the latest in technology to make every event run seamlessly. “We will be the newest venue in the city at this scale in a very long time,” she said. Public comment on the project ran until July 12. Sohal said they’ve received only positive comments on the development. “I think the excitement will only increase when we release our rendering and interior design,” she said. The development site itself is located in a vacant area, and is surrounded by the Holiday Inn Express, a hydro corridor to the east, a commercial parking lot to the south, and low profile residential dwellings to the west. Across from the hydro corridor are low profile residential developments.

Avoid making an important decision this week, Aries. Your mind is busy with too many ideas, and you will not be able to focus all of your attention on one task. Taurus, you may find you are focused on your finances this week. It’s a good time to assess spending habits and make some changes for the better. Gemini, you may find that luck is on your side this week and you can use this to your advantage. Take some risks you might normally be hesitant to take.

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!

You certainly are in the spotlight this week, Cancer. All of this attention may try your nerves, so you may be interested in hiding out somewhere. Later in the week, you will have the chance.

Restlessness settles in this week, Libra. You might want to plan a little adventure, whether it is a weekend trip or a night out on the town. The goal is to change the scenery. Scorpio, stay on top of bills, paperwork and anything else that helps you to get organized. Once you’re finished catching up, resolve to be more organized going forward. You will have to put forth some extra effort this week, Sagittarius. It may feel like others aren’t pulling their weight, but you still need to do what you have to do to get the job done. Capricorn, take some extra time cleaning up in anticipation of an unexpected guest. While company is always welcome, you want to have a tidy home to show off. Aquairus, enlist others to lend a helping hand this week. Others may not offer their time and effort, so be proactive in seeking help with an important task. Pisces, it may be tempting to stay at home. But you have responsibilities, and they need to be tended to. You can always relax once your work is done.
