EMC news - Painted bicycle lanes are a thing of the past and Ottawa is on the right track for the future by starting to build a network of segregated bike lanes, according to local delegates who attended the Velo-City cycling conference in Vancouver last month. The delegates brought that message back to Ottawa during a port-mortem session on Aug. 9 organized by Citizens for Safe Cycling. Five panelists – cycling advocates and city staffers from Ottawa – shared their thoughts after attending the conference, which is the largest cycling safety conference in the world. A main theme that emerged was the need for cities to create a network of separated bicycle lanes, said Jamie Stuckless, an active transportation planner who works with Green Communities Canada in Ottawa. “The first one that I heard repeated over and over again was the need to create a network of segregated bike lanes that actually get people where they want to go,� Stuckless said. She said she was surprised by the number of city officials from around the world who spoke to say that painted bike lanes are a thing of the past. See AVID, page 4

Mechanicsville discusses Hintonburg partnership Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Longtime Mechanicsville residents are banking on a revival of their community association this fall. About 20 residents gathered at the Laroche Field House on Aug. 9 wondering what a proposed partnership with the Hintonburg Community Association would mean for Mechanicsville. While some felt a letter sent out by the HCA gave the impression the well-supported neighbouring association had

aims of including Mechanicsville in its coverage area, HCA executives clarified that they just want to pass on their development and zoning expertise to their less-experienced counterparts in Mechanicsville. The neighbourhood of Mechanicsville is defined on its western side by Parkdale Avenue and the Tunney’s Pasture federal campus and Transitway station, the O-Train line to the east and Scott Street to the south. The city’s recent approval of a 28-storey condo tower at 99 Parkdale Ave. and the up-

coming debate over a proposal for a 24-storey building at 159 Parkdale are a sign of the development pressure faced by the small neighbourhood of about 1,000 residents. The influx of development in the area led the condo boards of three Mechanicsville buildings (50 and 44 Emerson Ave. and 110 Forward Ave.) to ask the HCA to consider representing Mechanicsville when it comes to development issues. Mike Andrechuck, one of the condo board presidents, said he’d be happy to have the HCA represent the community

on zoning matters. Cheryl Parrott, a Mechanicsville resident, said she has learned it is critical to “speak the language� of planning and zoning if you want your argument to be credible and that’s a skill the HCA can help with. But most people in attendance at the Aug. 9 meeting made it clear that while they appreciate HCA’s help in getting up to speed on land-use planning issues, they are not prepared to be represented by another community.

ber. Robert Dekker, vice-president of the Centretown Citizens Community Association reported he has heard from many concerned residents in the area. “There is concern with the station gone, the safety the community currently feels will be gone and they are apprehensive of what could happen.” Dekker is not happy with what he called a sudden decision to close the building. “We were surprised. We received notice at 1:30 p.m. on a Friday before the long weekend? We thought we would get more notice,” Dekker said. The association, Dekker added, had heard there was potential for the centre to close, but had hoped to have taken part in a consultation process on where the new centre could be. “I think, maybe I am being presumptuous, that the association was owed a phone call, but it would have been nice,” Dekker said. Cost of rent for the building is the given reason for the closure. Police chief Charles Bordeleau said that various provinces are facing sustainability issues and have to learn to reallocate resources. “Managing within that envelope is a challenge we’re facing,” he said. “We looked at that we’re paying rent, $60,000 a year. How can we partner up with the city to save money?” By changing the location of the Centretown station, the department will drastically reduce rent costs to run the station. Dekker is not convinced. “I understand social responsibility, but at what point do we worry about the safety of the residents?” Dekker said. The building was closed over several months in 2011 for renovations, re-opening in April. At the time, the community police officer in charge of the centre Const. Khoa Hoang said the interim period had been extremely difficult for staff, the community, and business partners. Upon re-opening, the centre was flooded with residents, happy to have the centre back. Now, Dekker said, it will be gone for good. “One email from a resident asked, ‘how many (officers) boots will it take to replace a sign?’ And that is the question, isn’t it?” Dekker said. Dekker is referring to the element of safety the community police centre has offered, simply by being in the neigh-

bourhood. The centre will move from directly beside a methadone clinic to an office in city hall. Somerset West has not had too much criminal activity, and Dekker and area residents have credited that to the centre’s presence. Residents are worried that criminal activity in the area will increase after the centre moves to a new location, he said. The new location also poses some concerns. The move, Dekker said takes the centre away from residential homes. “Are people going to go to the new centre? They might call 911 instead,” Dekker said. Dekker suggested a space, such as a community centre could have also been used to house the community police centre. “A location like the Jack Purcell Recreation Association could have worked and people may have been more receptive to the move,” he said. But according to Sgt. Stephane Tracy, the move will not cause disruptions or affect programs and services offered by the downtown community police centre. Dekker said he hopes this is the case. “I know the officers out of that building were fabulous and we are anticipating that the level of interaction will not change,” he said. Tracy said the number of officers for the area and the centre itself won’t change, adding that the level of service will remain the same. “Moving will not affect what the community police centre does,” Tracy said. Dekker said in light of the removal of the centre, the community association’s safety committee will be watching for any increase in criminal activity in the area. Dekker encourages residents who live in the area to contact the committee if there are any concerns. “The committee will gauge how this new change will go,” Dekker said. “We may not know until September what the impact is of the centre moving but we will be keeping an eye on it.” The centre will relocate to city hall on September. Crime prevention information can be picked up at any of the other community police centres in the city. For urgent police matters, police have requested residents go to the Ottawa Police Station at 474 Elgin St. or call 613-236-1222 ext. 5766.

EMC news - In almost two years as a city councillor for one of the most developmentheavy wards in the city, Katherine Hobbs has not voted against a single development proposal – but that might soon change. While a lot of massaging and advocacy goes on behind the scenes before a development proposal is accepted, Hobbs said she has never flat-out opposed an entire development or voted against a rezoning in her ward. And despite Tega Homes reducing its proposal for the lot adjacent to the Carleton Tavern from 36 storeys to 18 storeys, it’s where Hobbs draws the line. Tega revealed its changed plans for 233 Armstrong St. in May and last week the councillor announced that she couldn’t support it. For one thing, Tega’s “Attika� proposal still flies in the face of the height limit of six to nine storeys enshrined in the Wellington West Community Design plan, which was adopted by city council last spring. Hobbs wants to uphold that community design plan, especially since it was just approved. “We really want to adhere to that CDP,� she said, adding she doesn’t like the idea of a

the association’s zoning committee. “There is a general feeling ... that anything goes (in the area) and that it’s already decided,� Hoad said. “They don’t have any faith in either the city or the councillor.� Some area residents Hoad had spoken to at meetings were skeptical of Hobbs’ statement that she would oppose the development and her decision made them wonder why the councillor would oppose Attika and not something like the recently approved 99 Parkdale Ave. development. “I don’t know whether it signals a change in attitude,� Hoad said. “I guess we will have to ask the councillor that at future meetings.�

Avid cyclists discuss the future of segregated lanes Continued from page 1

They are no longer investing money in that type of infrastructure. “I thought, that’s true,” Stuckless said. “That sharrow on the road might help me because I’m already cycling, but it certainly doesn’t get my mom on the road and it doesn’t get my friend and her twoyear-old son on the road.” A sharrow is a paint marking indicating that cyclists and motorists have enough room to share the lane. “Painted lines just aren’t getting new people (cyclists) on the road,” she said. “They were really talking about how if you want to make actual increases in your cycling rate … you need to look at connected networks of segregated bike lanes.” City transportation planner Robert Grimwood agreed. He said the conference re-affirmed

for him that infrastructure is key to promoting cycling. But Grimwood said he also heard a message throughout the conference that cities need to move into the next phase of cycling infrastructure if they really want to make a shift in how citizens are travelling and that next phase is segregated bike lane like the city is studying on Laurier Avenue. “The stuff that we’re doing now helps people who are already on bikes … it doesn’t give us that uptick (in cycling) we’re looking for,” Grimwood said. The last edition of Ottawa’s cycling plan in 2004 set a goal of increasing bicycle trips from 4,500 in 2001 to 12,000 in 2021. That plan is currently being updated. Another city transportation planner, Colin Simpson, said he learned that the city needs to reverse its thinking. Ottawa

currently sees segregated lanes as a nice extra perk, while things like painted lanes, cycling maps and bike parking are “must-haves.” In the future, segregated lanes need to become the “must-haves,” while everything else should be “nice to have,” Simpson said. Another major message coming out of the conference was the huge improvement in cyclist safety that can result from a reduced speed limit. Stuckless pointed out an interesting statistic she discovered at the conference: if a cyclist is hit by a vehicle travelling at 50 kilometres per hour, there is an 80 per cent chance the cyclist will be killed; however, if the vehicle is travelling at 30 kilometres per hour, that risk of death goes down to just 10 per cent. The safety benefits are great, Stuckless said, but low-

Grimwood also said it was very clear to him that reducing

the speed limit is the best thing a city can do to make roads safer for cyclists and all road users. The conference re-affirmed that Ottawa is heading in a “good direction” and is emerg-

The property at 159 Parkdale Ave. is the latest in the area to be named as the site for a proposed 28-storey condo tower.

Traffic issues dominate Parkdale condo talks Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Another plan for a 28-storey building on Parkdale Avenue got a trashing from Mechanicsville and Hintonburg residents at a public meeting last week. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs and Linda Hoad of the Hintonburg Community Association both agreed that the main issues highlighted at the Aug. 7 meeting concerned the height of the building – both the appearance of the skyscraper and the traffic that would result from so many new people residing on Parkdale. “It’s not just this traffic, it’s the traffic from all the development in the area,” Hoad said. The Richcraft Group proposal for 159 Parkdale follows on the heels of the city’s approval of another 28-storey condo tower at 99 Parkdale and there are proposals in the works for other properties

along the street, which connects Mechanicsville in the north and Hintonburg south of Scott Street. Richcraft has another 28-storey tower in the works at Parkdale and Scott, Hoad said. The Hintonburg Community Association is working with some Mechanicsville residents to advise them on land-use planning issues so they can represent their own interests as their Laroche Park Community Association begins rebuilding, so Hoad said she won’t be advocating on their behalf. But Hintonburg does have an interest in the proposal because the neighbourhood is concerned about the precedents the city is setting by allowing the tall towers to march along Parkdale, Hoad said. While the new buildings will be close to the Tunney’s Pasture Transitway station, Hoad said it won’t stop people from driving their cars, since

the buildings will provide them with places to park their vehicles. Adding residents to buildings on congested Parkdale will encourage drivers to cut through the neighbourhood to avoid traffic, Hoad said. Another concern is the proposed tower’s proximity to the three-storey townhomes behind the site, Hoad said. The developer, Richcraft, is proposing to grass over a laneway that’s too narrow to use as vehicle access and use it as a green buffer from the townhomes instead, she said. The city has been very inconsistent in its approach to laneways, Hoad said, so she encouraged Mechanicsville residents to make their thoughts known on that issue as part of the consultation. Hobbs said there has been some good discussion about the laneway and she has heard that people would like to see the lane become recreational space. That discussion led to some

attention on the lack of “laybys” for vehicle drop-offs in front of the new condo towers being built in the area. The councillor said she is still looking for insight on whether Mechanicsville residents don’t like the height of the building because of the way it will look, or if their concern is more about the density of the building and the number of cars that will be using Parkdale Avenue as a result. “I’m hearing that some people would be OK with a 14-storey squat building (with the same number of units), but it will still have the same traffic issues,” Hobbs said. It’s important to consider that the new condo buildings near Tunney’s Pasture will likely be a draw for public servants who work at the federal campus, Hobbs said. If people both live and work in the area, it would alleviate some of the traffic issues caused by people arriving to work there by car.

Helping make memories last a lifetime Studio holds exhibition to raise money for Alzheimer’s research Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - An art exhibit from local Old Ottawa South business owner and photographer Jérôme Scullino aims to help fund Alzheimer’s research at the University of Ottawa. The Art for Alzheimer’s exhibition on Aug. 19 will support the non-profit foundation You and Me for Memories, a foundation dedicated in raising money for Alzheimer’s disease research. Jérôme Scullino Photography Studio in Old Ottawa South will feature selections from Scullino’s personal work, Les Invisibles, a collection of photographs of the elders from a small town in France. The feature photograph, one of an elderly couple embracing, highlights the impacts of a disease such as Alzheimer’s said studio manager Ashleigh Birkett. Scullino, not shy to offer his help when it comes to help fundraise for a cause, jumped at the chance to help the organization. “It is important to the studio to give back to the community

any way we can,” Birkett said. “From someone who comes to our studio or even ourselves, we have all been affected by this disease and we want to help.” Birkett added it is also important to the studio to give back to the community. You and Me for Memories is a volunteer group that raises money for Alzheimer’s research done by Dr. Richard Bergeron, a physician with the University of Ottawa’s faculty of medicine. The foundation was created in 2008 by St-Jean’s brother, David, and his friend, Bruce Levis, who both had mothers who suffered from the disease. At one time, the group raised all its money through one annual fall gala, but now holds several small fundraising events throughout the year at local long term care homes. This will be the first businessorganized fundraiser for the foundation. Over the past four years the organization has raised more than $175,000. St-Jean said the goal this year will be to sell more than 1,000 tickets, which are on

sale for $80 each. AN EVENING TO REMEMBER

Karen St-Jean, the foundation’s director of media relations and events sponsorships, said the idea for the fundraiser arose when she approached the photography studio for a donation for their annual fall gala, An Evening to Remember. Scullino, who also had a family member suffering from Alzheimer’s, showed St-Jean his photographs taken of an elderly couple embracing from the Les Invisibles series. “I started to cry, it reminded me of the way my father was with my mother,” St-Jean said. “It was when I saw the photograph that a conversation started about the possibility of holding an event at the studio.” Briket agreed that it was through the emotional conversation of what it is like to have a family member live with the disease which led the studio to offer to hold the one day fundraising event. This isn’t the first time that the photographs of Les Invisibles have been on display, Brikett added, but it is the first time the photos will be displayed the way Scullino wants them to be. “The studio felt being able to exhibit the photos would

It is a project of Jérôme’s (Scullino’s) that is very dear to him, they have never been shown the way he wanted it to be, and this is his chance,” Brikett said. The staff of three began canvassing the area, from local businesses to residents to inform them about the upcoming fundraiser as well as gather more gifts for the final

draw. All the proceeds from the draw will go to the foundation and Scullino will donate half of the proceeds from any photograph prints sold to the foundation. The exhibition will also feature a draw, where the chance to win one of Scullino’s print, along with other prizes will be handed out. Tickets to enter the draw

are $20. The event is scheduled to run from 1 to 5 p.m. at 1171 Bank St. St-Jean said people can also donate to the foundation online at http://www.youandmeformemories.ca or attend the fifth-annual You and Me for Memories gala, An Evening to Remember at the Ottawa Convention Centre on Sept. 29.

the city. “The Pop-up Park gives people the idea of what real world use can be of their old tires,” Horsman said. “What we are trying to do with this space is to inform people of where their scrap tires go, they don’t get burned - they get turned into sustainable products.” The Ontario Tire Stewardship is a non-profit organization responsible for developing and applying the use of Ontario’s used tire program

and is funded by industry organizations. Horsman said the goal of the event in Ottawa is to educate people on how rubber can be used as an alternative building material for construction of city parks or roads. A recent survey conducted by Ontario Tire Stewardship found 89 per cent of Ontarians felt their communities would benefit from the use of recycled tire products in community projects. The event highlights sus-

tainable living and maximizing recycled rubber products, turning them into everyday items including rubberized tiles, sidewalks, mulch and roof shingles, Horsman added. “It is taking place in a parking lot, taking up parking spaces, to also highlight the need to use other modes of transportation,” Horsman said. The eco-friendly mini-park will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. R0011552820

Drought comes with a price for everyone

Y

ear after year we are seeing less predictable weather. It’s costing the farmers dearly this year and the dry times will cost us all over the coming months and years. Adapting our actions to deal with climate change is a simpler task than adapting our lives to deal with weather that can damage our economy. The price we pay for fruits and vegetables will be the

first effect felt by consumers. If dry weather becomes the new normal, some produce may not be available at all or the season will be shorter. Because local corn and hay feeds cows but is in short supply, farmers across much of Canada and the central United States will likely be forced to sell off beef cattle. There could be a glut and prices might drop in the short term which could be followed by a spike.

Unpredictable weather may mean unpredictable beef prices. Beyond the food on our tables, there will be other, less obvious effects if dry, hot weather becomes the norm. At Pinto Valley Ranch in Fitzroy Harbour, the owners plan to sell nearly half their horses because feeding them hay at current prices isn’t possible. That will mean reduced opportunities for Ottawa kids to try riding,

which in turn will almost certainly mean fewer riders for the equestrian industry in the future. If watering bans become the new normal, backyard gardens and community allotment gardens won’t be able to provide as much food for city folk. That in turn increases demand for imported foods. If we’re forced to stop watering lawns, they will die and homeowners will have to invest in drought resistant

plants or pave the front yard. Golf courses are suffering and the cost of installing irrigation systems could be the difference between staying in business or shutting down for some course owners. The sports fields used by children and adults are in rough shape because of the dry weather. When the quality of play drops far enough, we’ll need to add the cost of resodding fields to the property tax bill. All those costs for con-

sumers pale in comparison with the trouble ahead for farmers. Some plants do well in wet weather while others can survive dry times, but what can farmers plant when the weather is completely unpredictable? If our summers are going to be extreme – dry, wet, hot or cold – we will all pay dearly. It makes investment in climate science seem like a good deal.

Protecting our most precious commodity: sleep BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse

W

e recently had one of those Sunday afternoons where our newborn screamed as only a colicky baby can for 15 minutes. In the same quarter of an hour, my six and seven-year-old boys started wrestling to the death on their bedroom floor, the cat vomited at my feet from the humidity, just as Ottawa received its first significant rainfall in over a month and water started pouring through the living room ceiling. The aftermath was not pretty. No resilience, no problem-solving, no understanding or empathy for the poor cat. To put it simply, we all freaked out. Much of this – or at least our reactions to it – could have been prevented by a good night’s sleep the night before. Unfortunately, with a two-week-old baby on hand, my husband and I had spent the better part of midnight to 5 a.m. rocking or feeding or singing to our crying baby. We were exhausted. I decided that day that I had to take matters in hand. There would be no more five- hour overnight stretches of screaming baby. I vowed

that from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m., I would not leave my bed, and the baby would be by my side, and she would learn to respect the precious commodity of sleep in our household. Who says you can’t sleep train a newborn? At the risk of jinxing a good thing, my method has worked. Little Darling seems to sense that it’s time for bed as soon as the TV goes off, the lullabies go on, the lights go down and we put our jammies on before the last feed of the day. Granted she tends to fall asleep in my arms, me propped upright for most of the night on a collection of cushions and pillows. But you know what? We’re sleeping. We’re sleeping so well, in fact, that I often wake up in a panic because five or six hours have gone by without interruption. I check to make sure Little Darling is still breathing – she is —and then proceed to wake her for a feed. At 6 a.m. I get up, make coffee and open the curtains before waking Little Darling for the day. She doesn’t have an opportunity to cry. She wakes up slowly as I talk to her, change her, tickle her toes and take her to the daytime feeding station in the living room. The boys generally help out with the final part of the daytime announcement by banging out the White Stripes on piano or guitar and then wrestling to the death on the living room floor. It’s only been a week. And you know babies have a tendency to alter their routines just as you get used to things. At the same time, a week is a third of Little Darling’s life. And frankly, at this stage of the game, I’ll celebrate whatever sleep I can get.

Cycling the capital City looks to connect its biking routes Ottawa’s new cycling ‘links’ are making it a leader in connecting cycling facilities Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - By the end of this month, there should be a ramp allowing people to wheel their bike up beside the stairs to get up the hill to cross Hartwell Locks. It’s a small, simple addition, and although it has taken eight years to make it happen, it will allow thousands of cyclists to use the locks to cross the Rideau Canal, particularly during the National Capital Commission’s Sunday Bike Days. It’s just one of thousands of small projects completed each year to tweak conditions to make life easier for cyclists in Ottawa, says Robin Bennett, the city’s project manager of cycling programs. Ottawa’s extensive network of pathways and decent complement of painted bicycle lanes allow the city to boast that it is one of the most bikefriendly cities in the country. But if the city wants to hit its target of 12,000 trips taken by bike in 2021 (there were 4,500 in 2001), it needs to link those cycling routes together. Things like the new “bike box” at the north end of Bay Street at Wellington Street are the type of thing that really work to connect cycling

Laura Mueller

Innovative cycling fixes like this new ‘bike box’ at Bay Street and Wellington Street are helping put Ottawa out front of other Ontario municipalities when it comes to bicycle infrastructure. routes, said Colin Simpson, a transportation planner at the city and project manager of the Laurier segregated bicycle lane. “It’s a great addition because it supports an important feeder line,” he said. A left turn at busy Wellington Street is the most intimidating part of cycling from Ottawa’s downtown, including the east-west Laurier segregated lane to the Ottawa River pathway and the Portage Bridge to Gatineau. Adding a bike box there to give cyclists the priority to turn left before cars is a way to make all the rest of the city and NCC pathways and lanes

more accessible and easier to use, Simpson said. Segregated lanes are the way of the future, participants heard at the Velo-City conference in Vancouver this June. They are what make the difference between improving conditions for people who already cycle, and getting new people on the roads, said Simpson, who attended the conference. “We hear from people who are taking up cycling because of this lane,” said Alex deVries, vice president of the local advocacy group, Citizens for Safe Cycling. Unlike segregated lanes, bike boxes don’t need a trial

period or “pilot project,” – they can just be done right away. That’s something Simpson wants to see more of. “We need to go further and do it faster,” he said. CYCLING LEADER

With mysterious and novel things like bike boxes popping up in Ottawa, the city is fast becoming recognized as a leader in cycling infrastructure. Buffered bike lanes on Bay Street are another Ottawa first on Simpson’s list. He wants to make the painted lines of an existing northbound bicycle lane on Bay Street wider by

painting a wider diagonal strip to the left of the bike lane, causing cars to leave more buffer room for cyclists. Another big first will be a grade-separated bicycle track along Churchill Avenue between Byron and Carling. When that road is reconstructed next year, it will have a raised track between the sidewalk and vehicle lanes that will give cyclists a feeling of safety similar to riding on the sidewalk. Being among the first in the province to construct these types of cycling facilities is giving Ottawa the edge in helping plan the provincial rules for cycling infrastructure. The upcoming bike facility guidelines, referred to as Book 18, will be completed by the end of the year, thanks in large part to the efforts of city transportation planner Robert Grimwood. “It puts us in a position to provide input on implementation … It gives us a chance to be leaders,” Grimwood said. “Ottawa has very clearly been the most engaged municipality.” There are 13 municipalities participating in drafting Book 18, which for the first time will include guidelines for how to build bicycle lanes of different styles, bike signals, “crossrides” (intersection crosswalks that cyclists are allowed to bike though) and all manner of infrastructure that could be built for bikes. Book 18 won’t provide hard and fast rules, but Grimwood said the Ontario Traffic Manual, which the document will become part of, is considered the “Bible” of infrastructure planning. “It will be used,” he said.

Battle lines drawn over Ottawa’s bicycle lanes laura mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Not unlike neighbourhoods rallying against tall buildings, there are groups who say they like bike lanes – just not here. While cyclists can argue that small changes and a few painted lines can make all the difference in getting new cyclists on the road, some counter that maybe that’s not the best idea, and maybe the lanes aren’t making them any safer. Or, perhaps the benefits to a few cyclists don’t outweigh the frustration bicycle lanes might cause for others, such as residents, businesses or motorists. Two such groups are BBRAGFAR (Bay/Bronson

Residents Action Group for Fair Access to the Road) and the Responsible Cycling Coalition (RCC). Both make it their main business to oppose the city’s two-year pilot project testing out a curb-separated bicycle lane on Laurier Avenue West. While both groups are similar in size (around five to eight people) and in their ability to garner media attention, they oppose the bike lane for very different reasons. PARKING

For some residents of Laurier Avenue West, seeing two lines of curbs bisecting the street when they look out their windows is hard to swallow. At the west end of the

street, between Lyon and Bronson, there used to be 69 parking spaces. Now there are none. The city says that section of Centretown now has more parking than before (124 spaces replaced 122), despite the removal of spaces on Laurier, because new street parking was created on adjacent streets. But that’s no comfort for many Laurier residents, who number around 2,000 in several buildings. Their concern is represented by the cumbersomely named BBRAGFAR, a small group that says there are not enough cyclists using the bike lane in their section of the street to warrant leaving the curbs up for another year of

the pilot project. “A service for which we pay taxes was taken away from us for the sake of a few cyclists,” said Norm King, one of BBRAGFAR’s five members. They want the city to keep the segregated lane farther east, but convert it into a “sharrow,” a painted shared car and bike lane, and allow parking over the sharrow markings when it’s not rush hour (Toronto is piloting that idea on College Street). There’s less traffic and therefore less risk of injury to cyclists on those blocks, so there is no need for a segregated lane – parking would be more beneficial, King says. BBRAGFAR also bemoans the lack of consultation be-

fore the lanes were put in. But King admits he did know about the handful of public meetings he could have attended to express his opinion – but he thinks the city had a responsibility to come meet directly with Laurier residents, and no one did. Seeing snow removed from the bike lanes at the same time as the rest of the street – often before sidewalks are cleared – only serves to add to their frustration, King says. There are many elderly or disabled folks residing in the area, and the alternate loading and drop off zones don’t serve them as well as the parking spaces they grew accustomed to enjoying. See BIKE, page 7

Cycling snafus

Cutting across 400-series highway on-ramps to continue straight on a road or bike lane is a daunting risk for cyclists.

Cycling lanes that disappear or appear out of nowhere, like on O’Connor Street, create collision potential.

Sharrow markings in lanes that aren’t wide enough for both bikes and cars, like at Laurier and Elgin, create risk.

Debris or crumbling asphalt in a bike lane or near the curb can force cyclists into the traffic lane For more or to report an issue: ottawabikingproblems.ca

Lanes pit cyclists against other cyclists, drivers Continued from page 6

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difďŹ cult for people with mobility concerns to cross over the barriers in the middle of the street, King added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The use of bicycles isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the issue,â&#x20AC;? King said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have the front of our buildings blockaded for no reason.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our chair has a bike,â&#x20AC;? King adds, referring to Janine Hutt, the head of BBRAGFAR. VEHICULAR CYCLISTS

He rides with conďŹ dence because he knows how to, Burdett says. He has taken the nationally-syndicated Can-Bike training course and he has spent years riding the roads with other cyclists in the Ottawa Bicycle Club. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he thinks everyone else should do before hitting the road. He says the focus on building infrastructure for bicycles is purely political: â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to get people out of cars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to work â&#x20AC;Ś It has to be recognized that skills will reduce the risk of people getting injured. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the thorn in the side of their plans.â&#x20AC;? Still, Burdett wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be upset to see more cyclists on the road â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as long as they are

trained to the exacting standards he holds himself to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one who is a committed cyclist would want to discourage people from getting on a bike,â&#x20AC;? he said. He says improvements to roads and intersections could make it easier for people to cycle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but those improvements would also beneďŹ t all road users and motorists, he added. ADVOCACY

Cycling advocacy in Ottawa seemed to go through a shift starting about four years ago. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Hans Moor took over as president of Citizens for Safe Cycling (CfSC), and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also around the time

when the group handed over Can-Bike training courses to be run by the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the same group as it was,â&#x20AC;? said Burdett, who was once involved with CfSC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically an environmental group now.â&#x20AC;? Moor, who moved to Ottawa from Holland in 1998, says his ďŹ rst decade or so in Ottawa gave him the impression that the people who cycle here are mainly focused on an athletic pursuit. But after he took over the advocacy group, he noticed that there were many cyclists in Ottawa who shared his mindset: that riding a bike is simply an efďŹ cient, healthy and safe way to get around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our message is a bit more moderate than in the past

For Kanata resident Avery Burdett, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big risk in encouraging inexperienced cyclists to get on the road by offering them a false sense of security in a bike lane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a mirage thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heightened on

Laurier because of the curb separating cyclists from vehicles. Burdett is a founding member of the RCC, and for him, driving (and he is careful to use that word) a bicycle is a simple and time-tested process â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not one that most people bother to educate themselves about. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a skill that most people are encouraged to learn, he says. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s referred to as a vehicular cyclist, and following the principles set out by John Forester in Effective Cycling in 1976, he treats his bike like a car on the road. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a theory based on research that shows being a skilled cyclist is the best way to prevent injury or death, Burdett says.

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it appeals to more people,â&#x20AC;? Moor said. Moor likens the range of cycling groups to the different types of motorists. That includes everyone from regular commuters to Formula One racecar drivers, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eliteâ&#x20AC;? cycling groups like RCC represent the cycling equivalent of Formula One drivers. CfSC leans more to the average commuter. CfSC doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disagree with everything other groups are saying (Moor also thinks that more money could be spent on cycling education), but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reluctant to get into debates with groups that hold an opposing view. In the end, Moor says his impression is that not many decision makers listen to the anti-bike lane or elite vehicular cycling groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much of an impact on where cycling is going in Ottawa.â&#x20AC;?

Bike tour gives a tasty ride through the city Organized by Just Food, event to promote community gardens Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A downtown bike tour gives participants a chance to stop and eat the cherries. The 2012 Urban Agriculture Bike Tour for Aug. 29 is organized through Just Food. The tour begins downtown and will take cyclists through Sandy Hill, the Glebe, Old Ottawa South, Old Ottawa East and over the Rideau River to Alta Vista for a total of a 12-kilometre bike ride. The tour is being held to inform participants the importance of having a sustainable food system in their city. Tyler Levitan has organized this year’s event and invites everyone to join the ride. “If people are interested in community gardens, and the sustainable food movement in the city, and want to meet like-minded people to learn some gardening skills and also have a really good time, they should come out,” Levi-

tan said “It is also just a nice time to spend the afternoon on your bike.” The ride, Levitan added is to promote community gardens, so individuals who wish to learn more about how a community garden is built are encouraged to come out. This is the fifth year this particular bike tour has taken place by Just Food but the first time the tour will include a stop at a home owner’s garden too. Old Ottawa East resident Maryna Nowosielski has a garden unlike any other. A mix of fruit trees, roses, green beans and strawberries, Nowosielski has planted it all together. “You can mix and match, it is good when you grow your beans in with the flowers, it contributes to proper growing and looks really pretty too,” Nowosielski said. Nowosielski’s will be a stop on Levitan tour. A resident of the Glengarry Road for 35 years, Nowosiel-

ski continually changes what her garden looks like and grows every year and she has offered the same advice to new gardeners who will stop by. “Just do what ever you like, because you will be changing it anyway, but learn what likes to grow where, after that, it doesn’t; matter,” she said. Levitan said he wanted to feature Nowosielski’s garden because it truly has everything, and is a sight to see. Over a four hour period, the tour will visit seven community gardens, including the stop at Nowosielski’s garden. Families are encouraged to come out, and Levitan said, no one has to cycle the entire 12 kilometres if they do not wish to. “Ask questions about anything,” Levitan said. “That is the point. Ask anything about what makes gardening unique or how to garden while on the tour.” There will be locally grown snacks free available during the ride. The tour costs a suggested donation of $5 to participate, which will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank.

The BUGS community garden, located at the Glebe Memorial Park, will be one of the gardens a Just Food bicycle tour will be visiting on Aug. 29.

Ice box brought various wonders to farm life

I

f it hadn’t been for the ice house and the Barnett ice box grandfather bought, we would not have had a way to keep food from spoiling. But the ice house served another purpose as well, even though we kids were forbidden to use it for anything other than to store ice from the Bonnechere River and retrieve a block when necessary. It was a retreat on a hot day, but we had to sneak in and sneak out, as we were warned any unnecessary opening of the door would cause the ice to melt. The ice house was always built on the north side of a building, in our case it was the little barn used to house the sheep. It was further shaded too, by two big elm trees on either side, which were probably there more by accident than design. It was made of straight up-and-down lumber, which had weathered to black from more than a century of use.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories There were no windows and the door was narrow and wide enough only to allow one body to go in at a time with the iron tongs to retrieve a block of ice when the one in the kitchen had melted down, filling the basin under the ice box with water. When the winter was at its coldest and the river had frozen solid, father would cut huge blocks of ice, pile them on the flat bottom sleigh and haul the load to the ice house. He would be at the job for days, drilling, sawing and stacking the blocks in the ice house in neat rows. Once he had enough to ensure we could survive until the next year, he made many trips to the saw mill for sawdust, R0011558956

which the owner was glad to get rid of. Every square inch of ice was covered with the sawdust to protect it from the little bit of summer warmth that penetrated the wood walls. It was usually Audrey or Everett who were sent for a new block of ice. They could be counted on to do the job the quickest, with the least amount of light let into the ice house. It was pitch-black inside and so they worked by feel rather than by seeing what they were doing. When the house was built, a big wood slip lock was made to keep the door secure and which could be used to open and close the door from either inside or out. That was a great comfort to me, as I was always terrified of being locked inside some place and not being able to get out. That door was supposed to be opened only when a block of ice was being taken out,

but that didn’t mean that was always the case. Although I was much too timid to do this on my own, I knew that my brothers would often slip into the ice house and spread out on the top blocks to cool off on a blistering hot summer day. They would wait until father was in a field and mother was busy in the kitchen and then they would sneak open the big wood slip lock and put as much flesh as they could onto the ice.

cubes in the 1930s. For reasons which escaped me at the time, ice for the cold drink was never taken from the ice box. Then on asking my older and much wiser sister why the ice had to come from the ice house and not the ice box, Audrey said “it was fresher,” which made perfect sense to me. We could never afford an ice box, but when grandfather saw the many hardships mother had to endure when

When the winter was at its coldest and the river had frozen solid, father would cut huge blocks of ice, pile them on the flat bottom sleigh and haul the load to the ice house. They had to be very careful to rid themselves of any sawdust when they emerged, however. Even a smidgen stuck to their overalls told the story of their adventure in the ice house and they would be given a lecture on the evils of disobedience. The ice wasn’t only for the ice box. Mother made big jugs of iced tea and Audrey would be sent for shards of ice, which would be washed thoroughly in a clean bowl and then dropped into the tea. We had never heard of ice

she married a back-woods farmer after living so long in a big city, he bought a brand new wood ice box in Renfrew and as well as keeping our food fresh, it served as a nice piece of furniture for the kitchen. It sat kitty-corner and mother always had a potted plant on the top of it, which at the time, I thought brought a touch of elegance to the kitchen. Since I was the youngest of five, I was given jobs mother thought I was capable of doing.

One was emptying the melted ice water from under the ice box. It dripped into a large white porcelain basin and I was always checking it, because if it got too full, I was sure to spill it on the kitchen floor. So several times a day, I got down on my belly, and stuck my hand in the basin to see if it was ready to be emptied. In the winter time, the water was poured into the reservoir on the end of the Findlay Oval. Anything we could do to cut down on dragging water from the pump out in the yard when the snow was knee deep, we did it. But in the summer, the water was poured on the garden or on mother’s flower beds. It was no small blessing that I never really appreciated back then; but we had the river and so we had ice. We had an ice house to store it in and so were always able to keep our perishables fresh. We had a grandfather who had enough money to buy us an ice box. We had a neighbour who was willing to let us cart away as much sawdust as we needed. We were poor, but in many ways we were blessed. Yes, indeed, we were blessed.

A tribute to Canada’s sweetheart Ottawa’s most decorated athlete, Barbara Ann Scott-King, was joined by Mayor Jim Watson and others to officially open the Barbara Ann Scott Gallery at city hall on Aug. 9. Sandy Hill native Scott-King grew up skating on Dow’s Lake and went on to become the only person to hold the European, North American, Canadian and World championship titles and the Olympic gold simultaneously in 1948. The new gallery on city hall’s first floor features memorabilia from her beginnings at the Minto Figure Skating Club to her ascent to world champion. Scott-King said the gallery is the perfect home for her collection. ‘I have always felt the collection belonged here in Ottawa … the city has always, always been so supportive,’ she said.

Residents to look at future of association Continued from page 1

James McCray, who has lived in the area for more than two years, said Mechanicsville is a distinct neighbourhood that should have its own association. “We can draw on (HCA’s) expertise while we’re getting on our feet,” he said. “I don’t think we need to be a Hintonburg-Mechanicsville community association.” LAROCHE PARK ASSOCIATION

Improving the Integrity of our Immigration System Since the Conservative government came into power in 2006, a key priority has been to improve Canada’s immigration policies to promote legitimate immigration while reducing the abusers of our generous system. I am proud to say that, in the past 6 years, we have made several positive steps forward, especially when it comes to combating fraud. Prior to 2011, the regulation of immigration consultants was not consistent, and there were widespread complaints about some advisors duping clients and stealing their money. To address this issue, our Conservative government has worked hard to pass legislation requiring that immigration consultants be held accountable to the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council. This, along with a global advertising campaign, has greatly reduced the number of people falling victim to crooked consultants. Marriages of convenience have been another threat to the integrity of our immigration system. While some people are duped into marriage fraud, others intend to commit fraud for malicious purposes. To help prevent this in the future, our Conservative government has implemented a restriction on sponsored spouses and partners. Now, they must wait five years from the date they became permanent residents before they can sponsor a new spouse or partner. There are also plans to implement a conditional permanent residence for sponsored spouses and partners, requiring that they live with their sponsor for at least two years or risk losing their status. More recently, the Conservative government has introduced legislation to expedite the removal of foreign criminals from Canada and to enhance the safety and security of all Canadians by making it more difficult for these people to enter the country in the first place. These criminals will have fewer options to appeal and this ensures that they cannot endlessly abuse our system. Finally, we strengthened the value of Canadian citizenship. The Conservative government introduced a first generation limitation to hereditary citizenship, so that citizenship can only be passed on to one generation born outside Canada. This ensures that all citizens of this nation have a true connection to our country. We added the requirement that all applicants demonstrate an adequate knowledge of English or French, as well as an understanding of Canadian values. Citizenship and Immigration Canada is also investigating nearly 7,300 people for fraudulently obtaining their citizenship, revoking their status on a scale like never before. I will continue to fight in Parliament for the rights of legitimate immigrants and new Canadians. We live in the greatest country in the world, and it is important to all Canadians that we continue to work on improving the integrity of our immigration system. Pierre Poilievre MP, Nepean-Carleton

A little-known community group has subsisted in Mechanicsville for as long as almost any other community association in the city. Once a vibrant group that ran events such as Mechanicsville Days, the Laroche Park Community Association has been reduced to a skeleton crew of just two members. While Keith Brown and Sandra Walby focus their efforts on the recreational arm of the association, they say it’s time to inject some new energy into the association before it dies out completely. Judgement day will be on Sept. 11 when the Laroche Park Community Association hosts its annual general meeting at the field house at 7 p.m. in a last-ditch effort to acquire an executive and board. Otherwise he’ll have to fold the group, said 83-year-old Brown, who has carried on

Linda Hoad of the Hintonburg Community Association’s zoning committee speaks to Mechanicsville residents at the Laroche Field House on Aug. 8 about a partnership between the communities. the group started by his uncle, Tom Brown, in the 1920s. It’s a long time coming, said Rick Dare, a Hinchey Avenue resident. He said he has tried to offer his help and join the association, but he has never had a response to his emails. “For 33 years, it’s just been those two (Brown and Walby),” he said. McCray experienced a similar frustration. “I’m just happy that it’s rolling again,” he said. Brown said he’s always down at the Laroche Field

House and people could come by any time to offer to help the group, but few people follow through on their offers. With a new influx of residents coming into Mechanicsville, Brown hopes that now is the time to re-energize the Laroche Park Community Association. “We kept it going because I don’t want to dissolve it,” Brown said. “We called the meeting to see if there is a genuine interest in reviving the association.” Linda Hoad of the HCA

If the Laroche Park group is reinvigorated after the Sept. 11 meeting, Mechanicsville residents will have to become members of that group and cannot join the HCA, and their tentative memberships will be cancelled and membership fees returned.

EMC news - In development-intensive Westboro, one developer is bucking the trend and not asking for extra height for its latest proposal. Minto Communities Inc. and Canderel have submitted a site plan proposal for a 24-storey at 485 Richmond Rd., beside the Rogers building. The residential building would be the last phase of a mixed-use development that includes a neighbouring seniors residence called Amica at Westboro Park and the Denis Coolican office building. Constructing the 191-unit tower is already permitted by the site’s zoning, but residents can submit comments to Erin O’Connell (erin.oconnell@ottawa.ca) by Sept. 7 The tower would include parking for 150 vehicles in three levels of above-ground parking and one level below ground. Access to the garage would be provided from existing driveways on Richmond Road on the west and east sides of the Amica building. A proposed pedestrian pathway is still in limbo. Minto’s submission to the city suggests that the western edge at the crossing of Richmond Road and Broadview Avenue and the Maple Lawn Garden might be the best location.

Knights save day at provincial event Nepean tykes lacrosse team takes home title at Ontario tournament Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

Submitted

A piece of military history restored On Aug. 13, the Canadian War Museum unveiled a newly-restored M1917 Six-Ton Tank, one of two known to exist in Canada. Based on one of the most influential tank designs in history, the M1917 is also one of the vehicles that helped train Canada’s Second World War armoured forces. The restored M1917 is now on display in the museum’s LeBreton Gallery and the restoration was made possible thanks to the support of Richard Iorweth Thorman, the Friends of the Canadian War Museum and DEW Engineering.

EMC sports – The Nepean Knights tykes lacrosse team not only took home the trophy at the end of a provincial tournament in the Durham Region on Aug. 5, but they got a chance to best two old rivals. Nepean has won provincial titles before, but never at the tyke level. Tyke players are seven and eight years old. The kids won the B level crown. “The kids were very determined,” said coach Matthew Firth. “Especially in the final day when we took on Burlington because they had taken us out last year.” The young Knights won the Ontario championship by winning three straight pool stage games and then three more elimination games. In the quarter-finals, Nepean won 9-4 over Sarnia, setting up a semifinal game against the Burlington Chiefs, who they beat 8-4. The team also beat out the Mississauga Tomahawks, to

win the trophy. The team beat Nepean twice earlier this year. “In a way it was kind of like redemption,” Firth said. The Knights played six games in the three-day tournament that signals the end of the season. The final game against Mississauga was decided 6-3. “That’s pretty close for lacrosse,” Firth said, adding the team was losing 2-1 after the first period. “I think there was only 45 seconds left when I realized we were going to win,” he said.

The team’s family members went bananas when the kids won the game and beat out 16 other teams in their division, Firth said. While he said every member of the team played well, up front, Liam Aston (14 goals and 8 assists for 22 points), Willem Firth (8-13-21), and Charlie Gollob (10-8-18) assists for 18 points) provided the offensive power for the Knights. The provincial championship was the highlight of a very successful season for the tyke Nepean Knights. The team compiled 29 wins, four losses and one tie while winning three tournaments before capping off a great season with the provincial-level victory.

Making Greek bread easy with a breadmaker

O

ne of Jeffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aunts gave me this recipe for Greek-style bread made in the bread machine. I tried it one day when we were having a light summer supper, and we thoroughly enjoyed the ďŹ&#x201A;avour combination of feta cheese, black olives and oregano. The bread is moist and keeps well for a couple of days. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite ďŹ nish the ďŹ rst loaf however before the last couple of slices were starting to get a bit dry. I had cooked a turkey a couple of days before and was making hot turkey sandwiches for supper. I decided to use the last of the Greek bread as the bottom layer for the sandwich since the turkey gravy would help to moisten it. The distinctive ďŹ&#x201A;avour of the bread transformed the hot turkey sandwiches into an entirely new and tasty dish. It was so good that I expect Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be making this recipe when-

PAT TREW Food â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stuff ever I have leftover turkey. This bread is also great for sandwiches. I used it one day for tuna sandwiches, and, like the turkey sandwich, they had an entirely different ďŹ&#x201A;avour. The amount given here makes a small loaf, about one pound. The amounts shown in brackets make a larger loaf. Jeffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aunt recommended using a sweet bread setting on the breadmaker. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also baked this using the dry milk setting when I substituted skim milk powder and water for the milk. The bread turned out ďŹ ne both ways. You can leave out the black olives, but the bread will be a bit drier.

GREEK BREAD

â&#x20AC;˘ 2/3 cup milk (1 cup) â&#x20AC;˘ 1 Tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil (2 Tbsp.) â&#x20AC;˘ 1/2 tsp. salt (1 tsp. salt) â&#x20AC;˘ 2 cups flour (3 cups) â&#x20AC;˘ 1/2 cup crumbled feta (2/3 cup) â&#x20AC;˘ 3 Tbsp. black olives, pitted and sliced (1/4 cup) â&#x20AC;˘ 2 tsp. sugar (2 tsp.) â&#x20AC;˘ 1 tsp. oregano (1 1/2 tsp.) â&#x20AC;˘ 1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast (1 1/2 tsp.)

Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli checks Queensway Carleton Hospital president Tom Schonberg’s heart beat during the opening of the Garrett Family Surgical Centre on Aug. 10.

Queensway Carleton Hospital announces new surgical centre Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news – As construction crews rushed to finish the new surgical centre at the Queensway Carleton Hospital on Aug. 10, hospital staff and local politicians gathered to thank one of the donors that made it possible. The Garrett Family Surgical Centre is named after Carey and Nancy Garrett and their children Ryan and Meghan, in part for their million-dollar contribution to the hospital’s Care Grows West campaign. The new surgical centre – which was due to admit its first patient Aug. 13 – features 10 new operating room suites

and 15 dialysis stations. Hospital president Tom Schonberg said the move into the new facility was being done over the weekend to minimize disruption to patients. The opening of the surgical centre marks the completion of the new four-storey structure and the final phase of the hospital’s $126-million expansion plan. Carey, who serves on both the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation board and on the hospital’s board of directors, said the hospital provides is part of the community. “We have had a long relationship with the hospital and all volunteered here,” he said.

“My wife is a nurse and has worked on a surgical floor, so this seemed like a perfect fit for our family.” Chiarelli said it has been a good year for the QCH, with an increase of 60 per cent in the hospital’s operating budget and extreme growth in infrastructure and services. Schonberg said serving one of the fastest aging populations in the country, the hospital had to be prepared to meet patient demand. “Reaching this milestone demonstrates the provincial government’s and the community’s commitment to delivering this much needed new facility that our community needs and deserves,” he said.

River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière

Integrated Road, Sewer and Watermain Construction – Highway 417 to the Carlington Heights Reservoir I am pleased to report that construction has begun on the newest infrastructure investment in Carlington. This project involves the installation of a new 406mm watermain along sections of Lady Ellen Place, Laperriere Avenue, McBride Street, Edgecliffe Avenue and Morisset Avenue, which will replace an existing watermain that must be relocated prior to the upcoming Ontario Ministry of Transportation Highway 417 widening project. The project also includes the replacement of local sanitary and storm sewers on select streets, and the installation of a new sidewalk on McBride Street. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the spring of 2013. I am working closely with City staff to ensure that the impacts of construction on our community are minimized to the greatest possible extent. Residents whose properties are directly affected by construction work will receive detailed information from the City of Ottawa’s design and construction team shortly. Thank you for your patience during construction of this important infrastructure. As always, if you have any questions about this project, or about any other matter, please feel free to contact my office.

Former Fury players help Canada capture bronze Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC sports – Ottawa Fury Soccer Club owner John Pugh was a happy man watching six of his former players celebrate the Canadian women’s soccer team’s bronze-medal win on Thursday, Aug. 9. A last-second goal by Diana Matheson, who played for the Fury for three seasons, secured a 1-0 victory over France, giving Canada its first-ever medal in a traditional women’s team sport since 1936. “Seeing Diane Matheson score that goal that won Canada a bronze medal was obviously a great delight,” said Pugh. In a game that was totally dominated by the French side, Canada had a single scoring opportunity — and made the most of it at City of Coventry Stadium. “It was clear the game was not going our way while playing the team that beat us 4-0 in the last World Cup. I think it was nice that someone like Diane put the ball in the back of the net, because she is a hardworking player,” said Pugh. Matheson was one of the six Ottawa Fury bronze medalwinning alumni. Others on the team included Robyn Gale, Carmelina Moscato, MarieEve Nault, Kelly Parker and Rhian Wilkinson. Pugh said Matheson is a very technical player, very skillful, and a great person. “She was coming back from a very serious injury. She did R001154439_0809

Canada’s winning goal had a simple start – ‘We’re lucky it fell to D,’ Christine Sinclair said of teammate and former Ottawa Fury player Diana Matheson. ‘She’s so composed.’

not actually know she would make it to the Olympics,” said Pugh. So far, 15 former Fury players have played for the Canadian national team, according to Pugh. “One of our objectives always has been to take the players that we are lucky to have and try give them the best opportunities we can,” he said. The women of Canada’s Olympic soccer team, who had been through an unprecedented emotional wringer last week, were celebrating, as they never have before. And no one wanted it to end. “It was like a dream out there,” said Matheson. “You see someone, you hug them, you have a moment; I think that happened about 35 times and then you go around again.” The dramatic 92nd-minute goal came after the ball landed at the feet of Matheson, who kicked the ball into an open net, ending a half that had been dominated by the French. “I have no idea what happened,” said Matheson, whose goal — incredibly — came on Canada’s only shot on goal for the game. “I can’t remember it, I think the ball came down the left and I was in the right place at the right time. “The ball was right there, the net was basically open, it definitely was in slow motion... it feels unreal right now.” The victory followed a

heartbreaking 4-3 semifinal loss to the United States on Monday, Aug. 6. During the semfinal, Canadian captain Christine Sinclair scored a hat trick and gave Canada the lead on three different occasions, only to see the U.S. reply each time. “If we needed confirmation that Sinclair is one of the best if not the best player in the world, we certainly got it,” said Pugh. Pugh said scoring a hat trick against a team that most people will agree is the most powerful in the world “was quite amazing.” “She had a scarce number of opportunities and she took them all. In addition, they were all excellent finishes in each case,” he said. The owner of the Fury said that what had happened with the Olympics is a perfect prelude to what he considers the main event – the 2015 Women World Cup, which will be hosted by Canada. Pugh thinks hosting that tournament will do a tremendous amount for women soccer. “There were close to four million people, sometimes watching the Canada-US game,” he said. People who have never watched a soccer game in their lives tuned-in to that game and got an enormous surprise,” said Pugh. With files from Star Wire Services

More nursing hours coming to Ottawa hospitals Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

who is also the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Health and Long Term Care. “This means patients will get the care they need while allowing paramedics and ambulances to respond to other emergency calls.” There were 18 different communities that received funding for the additional hours, with Ottawa receiving $1.5 million.

EMC news - Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely was at the Montfort Hospital on Aug. 8 to announce additional nursing hours in Ottawa. Ottawa will receive up to 26,807 nursing hours in 201213 dedicated to patients arriving by ambulance. Allocating more nursing

hours to patients arriving in the emergency room via ambulance prevents a backlog of ambulances and paramedics. The nurses will be working with patients who do not have life-threatening conditions. “We’re providing better emergency care by funding new nurses who are dedicated to helping patients arriving by ambulance,” said McNeely,

Andrew D’Souza, an 18-year-old Nepean resident pictured during a badminton camp he helps to run at the RA Centre. D’Souza, fresh off a win at the Pan-Am games in Edmonton, says he wants to train for the next Olympic Summer Games.

Nepean badminton player preps for next Olympics in Brazil Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC sports – The Olympics may be over, but for a Nepean native and badminton player, his journey has just begun. Andrew D’Souza, a recent grad from St. Pius X High School, nabbed a gold medal in the Pan-American under-19 boys singles championships held in Edmonton on July 29. D’Souza, who has been playing the sport since he was 13 years old, said it’s a step towards competing in the 2016 Summer Games.

D’Souza bested fellow Canadian Benny Lin in straight sets (21-10, 21-19) in the gold medal match. He also picked up a bronze in the under-19 mixed doubles competition. He partnered with Vivian Kwok of Toronto. Now back in Ottawa, D’Souza has resumed working as a counsellor in a day camp for badminton players at the RA Centre. The centre – where D’Souza has trained since he starting playing – was where he developed a love of the competition.

“I played at a local competition and won every match,” he said. “Then I played here and I got creamed. I started to see the skills that were needed.” He will be starting work on a kinesiology degree at the University of Ottawa this fall and is looking forward to training towards his dream of competing in the Olympics. “Badminton isn’t just about your strength physically, it’s about strategy,” D’Souza said, adding he trains six days a week. Aside from his athletic goals, D’Souza said he would like to be a sports trainer.

DON’T KEEP SCRATCHING YOUR HEAD; USE THESE TIPS TO RID YOUR FURRY FRIENDS OF FLEAS! 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.

Hi, our names are Jaga and Azlan, we are two young Highland Lynx kittens that come from Québec. We look very different although we are brothers, and also bestfriends! Our mission - protect the house from any small intruders! And in the meantime practice on everything, like shadows and small rolling objects. We also have a big brother golden Retriever named Charlie, we all love to play and sleep together, he still doesn’t like to cuddle as much as we do, but it’s a work in progress!

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-the-counter products ($5 to $30), they often need to be reapplied to solve a flea infestation.

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.

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.

Use a flea comb several times a week on all pets.

SuperEx bringing Midway Magic to south Ottawa Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; While the real SuperEx rides its logistical rollercoaster to secure a new home, Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Finest Shows is bringing a little magic to the nearby Rideau Carleton Raceway this month. Beginning Thursday, Aug. 16, the racewayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grassy grounds will be transformed into a wonderland of rides, games and shows to keep the whole family entertained over two weekends until Sunday, Aug. 26. The event is sponsored by the Central Canada Exhibition Association, which ran SuperEx at Lansdowne Park for more than 120 years until 2010, when it was cancelled due to the historic siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redevelopment. SuperExâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midway provider, Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Finest Shows, created last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst Midway Magic event to tide families over while SuperEx is on hold. It was hosted at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s east end. 28

Joe Pavia, Ottawa representative for Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Finest Shows, said this year the baseball team didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have its lease ďŹ nalized with the city before Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Finest Shows needed to decide on a venue, so they went with the raceway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we had to make decisions it just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t timely,â&#x20AC;? he said. While the Rideau Carleton Raceway is not as central as the baseball stadium, Pavia said the venue has some noticeable perks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The raceway has something we always love to have: it has real grass. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bringing a family itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to not be on pavement,â&#x20AC;? he said. He added that the raceway is better equipped with services like water and power. While Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Finest Shows knew its event was magical last year, this year the organizers have made it more ofďŹ cial with a roster of magicians, illusionists and hypnotists taking the stage over the two-weekend fair.

Ottawa West EMC - Thursday, August 16, 2012

Emma Jackson

Sandy Hill magician Gabe Roberge, 14, will mystify crowds at Midway Magic at the Rideau Carleton Raceway this month. Popular hypnotist Fernandez is the star, and will offer his â&#x20AC;&#x153;hypnotic comedyâ&#x20AC;? at 4 and 8 p.m. each day on weekends. Ottawa magician Ian Quick will also offer two shows each day on the weekend, which are â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ lled with

laughs, thrills and jaw-dropping effects,â&#x20AC;? according to the Midway Magic press release. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understudy, 14-year-old Gabe Roberge, that visitors should watch for. The young Sandy Hill ma-

gician will perform twice a day on weekends at the biggest gig of his short career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been asked to do this many shows for one person, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited about that,â&#x20AC;? said Roberge, who will begin Canterbury High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drama program this September. Since he was about four years old, Roberge has lived and breathed magic. His small bedroom is crammed with hundreds of gags, props and books that have made him the magician he is today. His decks of cards alone occupy a four-level desktop drawer set, sorted into dozens of rows of red and blue decks just waiting to fascinate his next audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Magic is everything,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spend 24/7 thinking about it, working on it, practicing, trying to ďŹ nd new stuff to add to my show.â&#x20AC;? His Midway Magic shows will offer family-oriented magic and comedy, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll invite kids on stage to participate in his tricks.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make a two-litre bottle of pop appear out of nowhere, and pull a roll of toilet paper out of his mouth to get people laughing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the hardest thing for me...just getting people laughing, to all join in and have a good time,â&#x20AC;? he said. Nixing the traditional cape, top hat and wand for a more casually colourful attire, Roberge considers himself a â&#x20AC;&#x153;modern magicianâ&#x20AC;? who combines comedy with fresh magic that will leave his audience in awe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to keep it away from pulling a rabbit out of a hat and pulling a quarter from a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ear. I try to keep it fresh so people are always interested in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening next,â&#x20AC;? he said. Roberge will perform twice every Saturday and Sunday during the fair, which runs Thursday, Aug. 16 to Sunday, Aug. 19 and Thursday, Aug. 23 to Sunday, Aug. 26.
