EMC news – A large number of Queensway Terrace North residents packed into Severn Public School on Oct. 17 to see what the future holds for the site of the former Grant alternative school. A site plan was unveiled for 2720 Richmond Rd. following a year of planning work performed by the owner, the west Ottawa francophone service centre. The short-term plan would see the three-storey building’s interior renovated to accommodate a community centre and classrooms, with a gymnasium built immediately south of the existing building for kids and seniors activities. A day-care facility would also be located on site. Classrooms dedicated to La Cité Collégiale, a French college in Ottawa, would take up one floor of the building, and would be the first time francophone courses are offered in the city’s west end. Health programming from the Montfort Hospital would also be offered, benefiting youth and seniors alike. Speaking on the site plan were francophone service centre president Roger Farley, Bay Coun. Mark Taylor and Queensway Terrace North Community Association president Marc Lugert. “I know I speak for all of us when I say we’re an open and inclusive community,” said Lugert prior to the unveiling.

Settlement reached for 1050 Somerset Height not amongst concessions reached prior to OMB appeal Steph Willems

EMC news – An Ontario Municipal Board of the 1050 Somerset St. condo development didn’t result in the desired height decrease, but it did produce significant benefits for the community, according to the community association’s president. The Hintonburg Community Association appealed the project out of principle on the



grounds that Claridge Homes took advantage of a planning loophole in order to propose 23 storeys for the site at Breezehill Avenue and Somerset Street, said the group’s president, Jeff Leiper. Last week the community association reached a settlement with the developer on the eve of the Ontario Municipal Board hearing, acting on advice from its lawyer, who saw little chance of a decrease in height or density.

Rather than risk a likely loss, the community association negotiated extensively in order to win concessions that would benefit the community and decrease the impact of the building on the community. “This is a big concession for Claridge,” Leiper said. “(Claridge) is going to eliminate five townhomes planned for the rear of the property and replace them with dedicated space for a daycare. One of the overwhelming needs in this community is daycare, and the first candidate is Devonshire Public School. This is a need that will only get bigger.”

Devonshire Public School is adjacent to the Claridge property, and the community is seeing an influx of young families. Leiper said the daycare arrangement depends on the community finding a tenant for the dedicated space, something that isn’t likely to be a problem. The second concession won was to have 20 parking spots in the building’s underground garage reserved for use by teachers at Devonshire. Lack of staff parking has long been an issue at the school – one that was never fully resolved.

BIA council meets with Mayor, city staff

Community News with your local EMC.

Michelle Nash


EMC news - Following the first meeting of the city’s council of Business Improvement Areas, the group made it clear its goal is to have an open and interactive dialogue with the city. “We want to have input onto reports that make a better policy,” Christine Leadman, the executive director of the Glebe BIA said. “We don’t want to be at committee, we want to be making an impact before.” The meeting of the Ottawa Council of BIAs took place at city hall on Oct. 15. The group requested a commitment from Mayor Jim Watson, who agreed it is necessary for the two groups to work together. Elected by the group to serve as the committee chairwoman is Donna Holtom, owner of Sante Restaurant and Holtz Spa, part of the Downtown Rideau BIA. John Philips, from the Carp Road Corridor Association was elected as vice-chairman. The meeting was the first opportunity for the council to establish its goals and priorities, such as the desire to have an open dialogue with the city. Each BIA will be represented by an executive and two

Ottawa Valley Tours

members of its board, but each BIA will only count for one vote on the committee. The group intends to meet monthly and hold quarterly meetings with the city. It wishes to be included as a group on both citywide initiatives and smaller, local ones as well. “We want to be seen as a resource rather than a hindrance,” Holtom said. According to board member Mark Kaluski from Quartier Vanier, the council is a result of an election campaign promise made by Watson. Shortly after the election, the BIAs tried to form an association, which went through a number of iterations, but never received the full support of all the associations in the city. In the spring, the mayor met with the chairs of the BIAs to lend support. The group held a fully attended meeting in May. “From that point on, we were able to get consensus and build the group that was presented to the mayor on Monday,” Kaluski said. Police chief Charles Bordeleau attended the meeting and said he saw it as an opportunity to extend his reach. The group took this opportunity to address their separate and joint concerns about safety and crime.

Raised bike lanes, streetscaping planned for Churchill Avenue members of Citizens for Safe Cycling turning up to review the current plans. Safe cycling advocate Kevin O’Donnell gave the project a favourable review on his blog. Comments

will see the area of Churchill closer to Carling rehabilitated, before progressing towards Byron in the second year. There is expected to be some changes to local bus route.


A conceptual drawing shows what the rehabilitated Churchill Avenue, including its raised bike lanes, will look like once complete in late 2014. who asked for a re-work of the plan to better accommodate pedestrians and a growing number of cyclists. “We actually lost a construction year due to the design work needed to create the best possible option. I’m impressed how hard city staff worked to accommodate everyone.” Raised cycle tracks essentially put the bike lane at the same level of the raised sidewalk, providing much more protection from vehicle traffic. The design has the added benefit of slowing traffic speed due to the “bulb-outs” built into intersections and business entrances. “When you have a big, broad vista, people think they can drive fast, and they often do,” said Hobbs. Intersections without signals along Churchill will be raised


for further gains in calming traffic. The road resurfacing will go a long way to eliminating complaints about vibration caused by heavy trucks bouncing over potholes and broken road surfaces, while cracked sidewalks will no longer pose a hazard to pedestrians. City engineers confirmed at the open house that on-street parking will be reduced by half, however, Hobbs said she hasn’t received much in the way of complaints about this, given the nature of the mostly residential street. “On-street parking on Churchill was very underutilized to begin with,” she said. “It’s not something that’s come up as a point of contention.” The project’s cycling component has generated much interest from Ottawa’s cycling community, with many

EMC news - When the finishing touches are put on the Churchill Avenue rehabilitation project, the west-end street will look much different than it does today. In addition to below-ground infrastructure renewal and above-ground beautification, the new street is designed to be more appealing to pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike. The full project – due to commence next spring – was on display at a public information session held at McKellar Field House on Oct. 16. There, residents were able to see how their comments and suggestions from the project’s first open house were incorporated into the final plan. Clearly, many comments came from cyclists, as the roadway will serve as a showcase for segregated transportation uses.Between Carling Avenue and Byron Avenue, the rehabilitated Churchill will feature raised cycle tracks alongside new sidewalks, curbs, street lighting, trees, intersection improvements, and below-ground infrastructure upgrades. This differs from the initial offering put forward by city planners. “(It) was to be a plain road reconstruction,” said Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs,

from the open house will be reviewed by staff and further tweaks could still be forthcoming, but “by and large this is the complete plan,” said Hobbs. The first year of construction

Woodroffe corner store enters history Steph Willems



EMC news - The former convenience store at the corner of Woodroffe Avenue and Richmond Road may be no more, but it still holds a significant spot in the history of the Woodroffe north community. Once a privately-owned corner store and later a Pronto Food Mart, the red brick building was reduced to rubble last month to make way for a 14storey, 85-unit residential development. The corner site, which also contained an abandoned house just to the north, has been identified for development since 2008.

Corner stores are essential to any neighbourhood, and the Woodroffe shop (built by John Bentham Ullett in 1915 and operated by his two sons) was long a go-to place for grocery orders and mail pickup. Many current residents have fond memories of the store, some of which are detailed in the recently-published book River; Road and Rail – Woodroffe Memories. At the time, the area was outside the city boundary and was served mainly by Richmond Road and an electric streetcar line bound for Britannia. Before the dense subdivisons of today came into being, there were waterfront cottages, vegetable gardens

The corner store at Woodroffe Avenue and Richmond Road was torn down last month, but its long history lives on in memories, and in print. and barns. Ice-cutting occurred nearby on the Ottawa River. “It’s pretty amazing all the people who submitted memories for our book,” said resident and co-author Wayne Jackson. The memories Jackson helped assemble paint a picture of the store as a community focal point, where youngsters received their first taste of employment, and where food could be ordered by phone and delivered to your door. Times changed, and the city expanded. The Woodroffe streetcar stop disappeared in the 1950s when the city-wide network was scrapped in favour of buses. The building of the Ottawa River Parkway in the 1960s added a barrier to the waterfront while suburban development swallowed the area. Still, throughout all this change, the store persevered. As printed in Woodroffe Memories, “Lesley Young,

who visited her grandparents, Earl and Marion Bradley, recalls that in 1965, the store was a specially preserved place. It seemed to me that it still hadn’t lost its ties to a bygone era of rustic grace and common sense.” Private ownership eventually gave way to the modern chain convenience store, but the store still served the area well until it closed in advance of the redevelopment. As noted by the Woodroffe North Community Association at a recent meeting, the condominium building (which varies in height, dropping to eight stories on the north side of the site) will contain 762 metres of retail space on the ground floor. A cafeteria/take-out food service is proposed for that space, along with a coffee shop, meaning that while the old building is gone, that corner of Woodroffe and Richmond will still be a place where locals can meet and get a bite to eat.

Bikeway plans miss the mark, residents say

EMC news – The small things that make a big difference for cyclists are on their way to the streets of Ottawa. People gathered at Patro D’Ottawa in Lowertown on Oct. 18 to see how the city plans to spend $5 million to connect existing bicycling lanes to create an east-west “bikeway.” The changes aren’t huge, but there is a big improvement to be made by adding things like sharrows – chevron pavement markings indicating that bicycles and cars should share the lane – and green-painted bike boxes to give cyclists an advance start at intersections, said the project manager, Zlatko Krustlic. Eventually, the bikeway will connect Vanier to Westboro through the downtown core, but the portion presented on Oct. 18 covered the section from the St. Patrick Bridge to the Laurier Bridge. That includes existing bicycle lanes on Stewart and Wilbrod streets, which will remain, but will be resurfaced for improved water drainage. In most places, the bike-lane markings will provide a halfmetre painted “buffer.” There is also a proposal to remove two stop signs on Wilbrod: at Nelson Street and at Augusta Street. John Verbaas, a cyclist and the transportation committee chairman for Action Sandy Hill, advised that the city should consider adding speed humps at those intersections to keep traffic speeds down. Sandy Hill resident and cyclist Tom Barber said he can’t understand why the bikeway isn’t proposed to follow a more obvious, direct route over the

Mackenzie-King Bridge to Albert and Slater streets, which currently form the downtown spine of the bus Transitway. Another city study called Downtown Moves is looking at possibilities for more active transportation modes on those streets when most buses are removed when the city gets its underground light-rail line completed in 2018. TABARET CUT-THROUGH

The plan would also require the removal of seven off-peak parking spaces on Laurier Avenue at the University of Ottawa, between the Transitway and Cumberland, and another 15 parking spaces on Cumberland south of Laurier. The university and the church at Laurier and Cumberland, St. Joseph’s Parish, are OK with that plan, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. It also means Laurier would be reduced to one lane westbound in that section, where there are currently two lanes. A bike box would be added to facilitate eastbound cyclists turning left from Laurier to Cumberland to go north towards the ByWard Market (and the bike lane on Wilbrod). Verbaas said the Cumberland turn is the second-best option. Cyclists often already use the pedestrian crosswalk west of Cumberland to get to a private road/pathway through the University of Ottawa campus in front of Tabaret Hall, therefore avoiding the Cumberland intersection entirely. Removing parking and reducing the westbound lanes for vehicle traffic will also be unpopular and could cause congestion in that busy area, Verbaas said. It’s also more expensive

City offers swim, skate discounts this halloween Staff

EMC news – No one knows if vampires can swim or if witches can skate, but the city of Ottawa hopes to find out this Halloween. Until Oct. 31, the city is offering discounted tickets to leisure swims and public skating at all city pools and arenas, for kids aged 3 to 15. The tickets cost $1 each and can be purchased at city of Ottawa swimming pools while supplies last, to be handed out instead of candy for trick or

treaters. A city statement hailed the initiative as a “healthy alternative to Halloween candy” to turn post-costume sugar highs into well-spent energy this winter. “Residents can give trick or treaters access to healthy activities, while avoiding concerns over food allergies,” it said. Ghosts and goblins can redeem their tickets for a free swim or skate between Nov. 1 and Jan. 13. For more information visit


Residents examine plans for an east-west bikeway connecting Vanier and Westboro during an Oct. 18 meeting at Patro D’Ottawa in Lowertown. for the city to implement, he added. “That Tabaret Hall area is totally private property for the university,” Krustlic said. “We have to rely on a solution where all the parties involved are supportive of it.” The university had yet to respond to a request for comment as of this papers deadline. ST. PATRICK BRIDGE

The St. Patrick Bridge is often considered to be a dangerous and intimidating place to cycle, but there are improvements coming. The city presented two options for the eastbound

section: keeping the “floating” bike lane between traffic lanes or pushing the bike lane against the right curb and having cyclists cross the right turning lane back into main traffic flow. Details are still being worked out and the decision will depend on feedback from the public consultation. Krustlic said the final design will be released when a decision is made, but the lane changes might have to wait for a couple years. There are long-term plans to resurface the bridge within the next few years and it might make more sense to make changes to the bike lanes at that time.

The rest of the changes presented on Oct. 18 are expected to be done in 2013. Most of the remaining sections, especially in the west end, will be completed in 2014. Plans will be available later this year. GREENING STEWART

For the first time in Ottawa, the city is proposing a pilot project to use green boulevards to separate bike lanes and collect and treat rainwater at the same time. The idea is proposed for two blocks of Stewart Street between King Edward Avenue and Friel Street. The “bioretention” boulevards look just like regular

grass boulevards, said city engineer Darlene Conway, but they have dips in the curb to allow rainwater that collects on the road to flow into the grassed section. “Most people wouldn’t know the difference,” Conway said. Technically, the boulevards are slightly more complicated – they have special absorbent soil and plant species that are hardy enough to withstand runoff that could be contaminated with road salt or chemicals, such as oil from cars. The buffers not only beautify the street, they also reduce the amount of runoff that goes out to the Ottawa River through stormwater pipes.

Budget 2013 Public Consultations

EMC news - In a surprise move after nine years as premier of Ontario, Ottawa South MPP Dalton McGuinty announced on Oct. 15 that he is stepping down as premier. The 57-year-old was the first provincial premier to call Ottawa home. “That was historic for our community to have a premier,� said Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli, a close colleague of McGuinty’s. McGuinty asked party president Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, to convene a leadership convention at the earliest opportunity. McGuinty said he will remain leader and premier until a new Liberal leader is named and he will remain as the MPP for Ottawa South until the next election – a role he has filled for 22 years. “As the party and government of relentless progress, we’re always looking for new ideas and ways to renew ourselves,� McGuinty’s speech read. “And I’ve concluded that this is the right time for Ontario’s next Liberal premier and our next set of ideas to guide our province forward.� The evening announcement came amid opposition accusations that McGuinty misled the legislature over power plant cancellations that

To have your say and provide feedback on Budget 2013:


will cost taxpayers upwards of $230 million and pressure from teachers’ unions over his efforts to freeze their wages and take away their right to strike. But McGuinty cited party “renewalâ€? and the opposition’s blocking of a publicsector wage freeze bill as his reasons for stepping aside. Having a local MPP leading the provincial government for nine years has “paid off big timeâ€? for Ottawa, Chiarelli said. When McGuinty became the provincial Liberal party’s leader 16 years ago, the Ontario Liberals had won just one election in 50 years. “We were in the wilderness and he brought us back. He brought us back in style and I think with tremendous credibility,â€? Chiarelli said. “He delivered big time to this community.â€? Chiarelli said there was a general sense that this term would be a “transitional timeâ€? for McGuinty, but the news he was stepping down was a surprise and came sooner than expected. John Fraser, who works for McGuinty and also serves as president of the Ottawa South Provincial Liberal Association, said even he was surprised at the resignation. “He’s very disciplined and focused about what he does ‌ so it was done in a very considered way,â€? Fraser said. McGuinty’s legacy will be leadership, Fraser said, but locally he has played a big role in helping the community grow, from helping redo Better Beginnings to assisting with getting new soccer fields at Hillcrest Park. “There’s nine years of this,â€? Fraser said. “He’s been great for Ottawa.â€?

Last week, Naqvi said he was considering a bid for the party’s leadership, but on Sunday, Oct. 21, the MPP sent out a statement saying that he would not seek the leadership. “I’d never say never, but first and foremost my responsibility is to my family and my constituents,� Naqvi told the EMC before making the decision, and that focus on his family was reflected in his choosing not to pursue the leader’s role. “This is a very personal decision for me. As the father of five-month old Rafi, I had to think long and hard,� Naqvi said in the statement. “First and foremost, I am Rafi’s dad, and being a father is my most important new job.� As a high-profile minister of transportation and infrastructure and a former Ottawa mayor, Chiarelli didn’t rule out a run at the leader’s seat. “I’ve always said throughout my whole political career, ‘You never say never,’� Chiarelli said. “Today is a time


Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi announced he will not join the race to lead the provincial Liberals. to bear down and continue to deliver good government and to show some respect for the legacy of Premier Dalton McGuinty, which is very significant ‌ I will turn my mind to my political future in the foreseeable future.â€? Other Ottawa-area politicians with Liberal affiliations weren’t available for comment at press time. Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MPP Phil McNeely said he had a few tears in his eyes during the announcement. It was 2002 when McGuinty came to city hall, where McNeely was a councillor, to ask him to run provincially. McNeely said Ottawa has been treated fairly under McGuinty’s leadership. As far as a new leader goes, McNeely said he has no favourites yet but he likes many of the potential candidates that have been named in the media. Herongate resident Perry Marleau wasn’t convinced that McGuinty’s time as leader was very beneficial for the area. Marleau, a self-indentified Conservative and former municipal council candidate in 2006 and 2010, says “simple favouritismâ€? has helped propel McGuinty at the provincial level, but without that local support, he would have a difficult time making a federal Liberal leadership bid, as some pundits have suggested. “Dalton is really well liked in Ottawa South,â€? Marleau said. “He’s a homegrown boy ‌ no one ever says anything bad about him.â€? John Redins, another Ottawa South resident who ran against McGuinty for the Party for People with Special Needs in the last election, said he was shocked at the resignation but figures political life wore the premier out. McGuinty may well back down from representing Ottawa South in the next election, but Redins said he wouldn’t be surprised to see a third generation of McGuintys vie for the seat. The premier’s father, Dalton McGuinty Sr., represented the riding before his son. No one has expressed interest in the future Ottawa South position yet, Fraser said, but he added that the McGuinty family has a long history of politics in the area. “It’s in the blood,â€? he said.

City should consider a pay-as-you-go future


ity councillors are in an unenviable position as they begin to tackle the next budget. The costs of Lansdowne’s rebuilding lie ahead while taxpayers remember the sinkhole on highway 174. What to do, what to do? It would be nice to build new things – an opera house, a new main library or affordable housing – but each project comes with two costs: the up-front bill for construction

and the long-term cost of maintenance. No one wants to end up at the bottom of a sinkhole. We need only look down the (provincially-maintained) highway to Montreal to see how bad things can get. Lumps of cement falling off bridges, rust eating away at metal spans and commuters who must keep an eye out for other cars, pedestrians and the occasional falling bridge. We’re not there yet and we

don’t want to arrive there any time soon. As many an expert has told city council, if you delay scheduled maintenance of your infrastructure, you end up paying more in the long run. One example is Ottawa’s public housing, which provides a double-whammy. The existing homes need upkeep and we need more houses for low-income families. A new Lansdowne Park will be welcome and the deal is done, but other capital

expenditures should be carefully reviewed before going ahead. Better to spend any money we have on maintaining what we already own than to head out and buy more stuff: bridges, highways and roads. During austere economic times, few taxpayers would oppose frugal city spending. Many would applaud it. Any true fiscal conservative in this city should be willing to forego the possibility of new-fangled build-

ings and roads and should also get behind the city’s policy of intensification over suburban sprawl. New neighbourhoods on the edge of town cost us all mightily when it comes time to run pipes, wires and buses to the new residents that move in. The city’s whole financial system deserves a rethink. Maybe now is the time for the city to toss away the credit cards and live within its means. Instead of borrow-

ing to build new stuff, put the brakes on spending until we can operate on a pay-asyou-go basis. It would mean years of limited new stuff but the payoff comes after the hard work, when new projects can go ahead without need for borrowing and debt. In the meantime, city councillors should focus on the most pressing business: maintaining what we already own. The sky is not falling, but the road might.


A history museum? Why not? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


f course everyone is suspicious these days that when it was announced that the Museum of Civilization was going to become the Canadian Museum of History, people assumed the worst. Or at least some people. The Museum of Canadian History was going to become an instrument of Conservative partisanship. Hall 1: How Sir John A. Macdonald invented Canada. Hall 2: The War of 1812. Hall 3: How the Liberals destroyed Canada. Hall 4: The Royal Family. Hall 5: How Stephen Harper saved Canada. Then you exit through the gift shop, where on sale are fridge magnets with the Free Trade Agreement printed on them, maps of Canada where Alberta is unusually large and several of the smaller provinces are missing, Stephen Harper’s book about hockey and autographed copies of the Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act. Such are the times we live in. Nothing a politician does is above suspicion. But when you step back and look at it objectively, a Museum of Canadian History is not that bad a thing. There is no such thing now and every serious capital needs one. The late lamented Portrait Gallery was a step in that direction, a chance for us to have a look at important Canadians past and present, but it perished for a variety of reasons, some of them political. It is often said that Canada has a rich and colourful history. And it is said equally often that most Canadians don’t know that Canada has a rich and colourful history. That, obviously,

has a lot to do with what is and isn’t taught in schools. But it doesn’t help that there is no single place Canadians can go and see their history portrayed in a vivid way. Properly done, the History Museum could accomplish a lot. Think of the Canadian War Museum and how compellingly the war years are portrayed there. There is much of our history that is not about war, but no reason that it can’t be portrayed compellingly, too. Think beyond war to the events and people who made this country, many of them uncelebrated, except perhaps in small museums in their birthplaces – the explorers, politicians, rebels, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs. If you are in Batoche, Sask., you can see a great Louis Riel exhibition. If you are in Grand PrÊ, N.S., you can learn about the expulsion of the Acadians. If you are in Neepawa, Man., you can visit Margaret Laurence’s house and learn about her life. We need to see all that here too, in a national museum. Not everyone can get to Neepawa or Batoche or Grand PrÊ. There would be a lot to put into this museum and locating it in Ottawa is a positive step. Ottawa is where the history museum belongs because the capital is the logical place for people to come and view their history. Anyone who has visited Washington knows how impressively American history is assembled and presented. No reason we can’t do that here. In a perfect world, a brand new museum would be constructed, a grand edifice somewhere along Confederation Boulevard (remember Confederation Boulevard?), but the times are less than perfect and governments are done with putting up grand edifices. So we lose the Museum of Civilization. That museum, as it turns out, is Ottawa’s most popular, but it has always lacked a clear identity. This change will give it one. Combined with the National Gallery, the War Museum and the Museum of Nature, the new museum will present visitors with a well-rounded picture of the kind of country Canada is and has been. That would be great to show visitors to Canada and even greater to show Canadians.

Boredom, revisited: maybe it’s a killer, too


very evening, my younger son returns home from school on the verge of

rage. After a few minutes of quiet time and some protein to balance his blood sugar, I sit him down at the table to do an hour of homework. One hour! He’s in grade one. The exercises include reading monosyllables over and over again, a rapid phonics method I’ve seen work well to teach kids how to read. But, to quote my sixyear-old, “it’s so boring.” And then there’s the math – reading numbers from one to 40, then one to 60, then one to 100 on a grid. “It’s so boring.” Presumably these are the

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse same exercises my active son has to endure day-in, day-out in the classroom. Midway through the second month of the term, he stood up in protest against this assault on his senses. “I’m not going to school anymore. It’s too boring. I don’t want to read le, la, me, il. I want to read real books. I don’t want to sit and listen to everyone in the class read this over and over again. I’m staying home and you can’t make me go to

school EVER again.” Yikes! Really, I couldn’t blame him. It got me thinking about the way in which our kids are forced to spend their days - being chronically bored. A few weeks ago in this space, I wrote about the value of boredom – the idea that allowing kids unstructured time forces them to tap into their creativity and discover interesting activities. But in a new film, entitled Boredom,

Montreal filmmaker Albert Nurenberg argues that too much boredom – especially enforced boredom – will kill you. He asserts that long periods of boredom equate to a form of chronic stress on our bodies. “The moment you become bored, there is an increase in the stress hormone cortisol,” Nerenberg told TheMonitor. ca. Anyone who knows anything about cortisol will understand it’s linked to increased cholesterol, raised blood pressure, obesity and heart disease. The experts interviewed in Nurenberg’s film go further, connecting prolonged periods of boredom to risk-taking behaviour, (think of teenagers left too long to their own

resources), restlessness, drug and alcohol abuse, extreme depression and even suicide. Nurenberg apologetically takes on the public education system as an institution that fuels an atmosphere of chronic boredom, forcing inherently active children to sit still and do rote learning for more than six hours each day. “You take a child who’s full of energy and full of curiosity and you make him sit at the same desk hour after hour after hour controlled by the clock and by the bell,” quips one interviewee in the film. Others cite the fearful outcome of this – violent, depressed, drug-addicted teens and adults. It’s enough to scare any parent. What to do? I’m reluctant

to take on a public education system that I see working for most, including my eldest child. But I do see a reason to tackle my youngest son’s boredom in the area I have the most control – homework. Instead of sitting down for an hour to repeat numbers and letters over and over again, we’re taking monosyllables and mathematics outside. Shoot a basket, read a syllable. Run around the yard, read a syllable. Slide down the slide, read a syllable. Play hide n’ seek, count to 100 (over and over and over again). It may take twice as much time, but at least my son and I will keep our cortisol levels in check and perhaps it will prolong our lives as well.

Daycare space, teacher parking to be provided by Claridge Continued from page 1

“This represents a longterm solution,” said Leiper. The third major change the parties agreed on was an alteration to the laneway running alongside the property, which connects Gladstone Avenue with Somerset Street.

“Physical changes will be made to the laneway so that users of the (Claridge) parking facility will have to turn north to Somerset,” said Leiper. “They won’t be able to drive south down the lane.” Coming up with a list of top demands wasn’t an easy process for the community as-

sociation’s volunteer board of directors. However, over time, through talks and consultations, the community’s biggest needs rose to the forefront. “It became clear as you talk to enough people,” said Leiper. “The chief thing we wanted we didn’t get – the height reduction – but rather

than take chances on winning that argument … we’re willing to take these pretty big concessions to the bank.” Claridge has also agreed to perform a wind study at the site. As well, the community will get a say in what exterior materials are chosen for the building, something that will allow the structure – or at least its podium – to bet-

ter blend into the surrounding community. While these planning aspects are now known to the community, one aspect is not, and that’s when exactly the building will be built. Even following talks with the developer, the timeline for the condominium remains “a big question mark,” according to the community association.

Given the number of condos projects already underway by Claridge, the Hintonburg development could be years away from shovels and cranes. However, given the neighbourhood’s popularity, there’s just as good a chance the developer would want to accelerate its entry into the community.


While the 23-storey height proposed by Claridge Homes at the 1050 Somerset site will remain, a settlement reached between the Hintonburg Community Association and the developer will see the elimination of on-site townhomes and the creation of dedicated daycare space, among other concessions.

Community collaboration needed to beat gangs: forum Laura Mueller

EMC news – Ottawa already knows what it needs to do to reduce gang activity in the city – now, it just needs to make it happen. That was the theme of a discussion at city hall last Wednesday evening during a forum called “Taking Action Together: Addressing Gangs in Our City.” The Oct. 17 event was organized by the Ottawa police, Crime Prevention Ottawa, the Youth Services Bureau and Ottawa Community Housing, but most of the discussion and questions from members of the public rehashed issues that have been discussed at similar events in the past. “I think these are themes that we’ve heard through our conversations,” said Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau. He added it is still important to listen to those stories and create a dialog about the issues that people are seeing in their communities. The chief said he was pleased with the number of people who attended and the amount of passion they showed about the issue. A sharp rise in shootings this year reinvigorated the push to end gang violence in Ottawa. There have already been 31 shootings this year as of Oct. 3, more than a 30 per

cent increase over last year, said Staff Sgt. Mark Patterson from the police guns and gangs unit There are an estimated 473 people involved in gangs in Ottawa and between 25 and 30 of them are believed to be involved in shootings. The event began with a panel presentation from Bordeleau, Patterson, Crime Prevention Ottawa executive director Nancy Worsfold and a special guest speaker, Jabari Lindsay, a youth development manager for the City of Toronto. “This is not a problem we can arrest our way out of,” Bordeleau said, emphasizing that solutions must be collaborative and focused on preventing youth from becoming involved with gangs. “We don’t have to reinvent the wheel. All we have to do is look beyond our borders and see what we can adapt to use in our community,” Bordeleau said. “A multifaceted solution that involves the whole community is the answer.” Lindsay shared one tip that resonated with the panel and audience: we can’t forget to “help the helpers.” Healing communities is about taking care of the people who are addressing these issues in the community, too, he said. Afterwards, around 200 people in attendance had a chance to share their thoughts,


A member of the public asks a question during an Oct. 17 city-hall forum on guns and gangs. stories and questions with the panel. One resident, Frank Reid, thanked organizers for putting together the forum because too often, these types of discussions happen at the national level. “This is where it impacts the community the most, lo-

cally,” Reid said. Mohamed Sofa, a community activist from PinecrestQueensway who now lives in Beacon Hill-Cyrville, said forums alone are not going to make a difference. “We have more policing, more public forums and no more programs,” Sofa said.

“That’s not a recipe for success.” He said Ottawa is very bureaucratic and has historically not been willing to take a risk and provide grants to fund grassroots community projects. “How can we take this discussion to the neighbourhoods and provide funding that will change lives?” said Sofa. In Toronto, Lindsay said the city has been willing to give out “really risky grants” to small, community-led groups, to “honour people who have ideas.” When money goes to frontline workers and people directly in the community, there is more chance of success, he said. The most poignant moment of the evening came when a woman gave an emotional plea for the city to acknowledge and assist the “invisible victims”: mothers of the young people involved in gang activity. “Those men, respect their mothers. You need to talk to them,” she said. Lindsay agreed, saying he always had utmost respect for his own mother during his wayward youth and that has led him to ensure he connects with mothers of the youth he works with in Toronto. Reaching out to people directly affected and involved with gang activity was also on the mind of Sandy Hill

resident Christien Levien. He called on the police to reach out directly to youth involved in gangs in order to create an effective solution. “We won’t hear their voices, because they’re not here,” Levien said. “They will be further marginalized.” Creating a “collaborative solution,” as the city says it wants to do, involves collaborating with people directly involved with the problem – not just city departments and agencies, Levien said. “We’re open to that,” Bordeleau said, adding that it is extremely difficult to engage current gang members in those kinds of discussions. In an interview after the forum, Bordeleau said the police service has connected with former gang members in the past and found it very helpful, but he stressed that he would greatly appreciate anyone who could direct him to a gang-involved young person who is willing to speak to the police. Planning for the forum began in July, after Premier Dalton McGuinty announced $12.5 million for violenceprevention programs, including $7.5 million for the Provincial Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy that funds the Ottawa police’s DART (Direct Action Response Team) unit, which deals with gun and gang crime.

Mayor states he has no plans to leave city hall Watson rejects opportunity to seek provincial Liberal leadership Laura Mueller

EMC news - Jim Watson has marked the halfway point in his new term as mayor, and if he has his way he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be leaving anytime soon. One of the biggest carrots of his political career was dangled in front of him last week: the possibility of leading the provincial Liberal party, for which he served as a cabinet minister in the 2000s. After Premier Dalton McGuinty announced he was stepping down from that role, Watson immediately and flatly rejected a leadership bid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very, very happy here. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked on Parliament Hill and served at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at city hall, and by far the most fulfilling for me, and where I think I can contribute the most, is at city hall,â&#x20AC;? he said. Watson said he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see himself heading back to Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park or Parliament Hill because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very happy at city hall. Municipalities are the most productive level of government, Watson said, because they â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get bogged down in the name calling and petti-

ness of politics.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I see what goes on on Parliament Hill and at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all of the divisiveness, rancor and arguing, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; miss those,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find that those two levels of government have become overly or hyper-partisan.â&#x20AC;? While Watson supported reducing the size of city council and re-drawing the ward boundaries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a bid his councillor colleagues rejected earlier this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he does not support term limits for politicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have term limits. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called the voters,â&#x20AC;? he said. Watson will again be looking to voters to support his vision for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;more co-operative, collaborative approachâ&#x20AC;? at city hall when he runs for re-election in 2014. The restoration of decorum and collaboration amongst city councillors is the achievement Watson has consistently listed as his top accomplishment since his re-election as mayor on Oct. 25, 2010 with 48.7 per cent of the vote. That stability and co-operation extends into the public service, too. Relations with OC Transpo workers and their union, The Amalgamated Transit Union

Local 279, have never been better, Watson said, pinning the credit directly on his newly appointed OC Transpo general manager, John Manconi, who took over after former GM Alain Mercier was fired in February. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a world of difference what was there even two year ago to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there today in terms of what John Manconi has brought to the table and the transit commission,â&#x20AC;? he said. All of the major labour union agreements for the city have been settled with increases at or below the rate of inflation, Watson said. Watson recently checked approvals for the Lansdowne reconstruction project off his to-do list, and by the new year, he and city council will have chosen a builder for the first phase of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lightrail line running under downtown. Both projects have been in discussions for more than a decade in various forms, and now Watson is happy to count them among the 85 per cent of election promises heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already completed, with half of his term still to go. The next two years will be about â&#x20AC;&#x153;staying the course,â&#x20AC;? and living within our means, the mayor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The easy part is voting on these big projects. The tough-


Jim Watson has marked the halfway point in his new term as mayor. After rejecting the idea of running for the provincial Liberal leadership, Watson said he will be looking for votors support when he runs for re-election in 2014.

Thank you to our many sponsors who made our campaign such a great success.

er part is implementing them to make sure they are on time and on budget,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. The EMC interviewed the mayor two days before the 2013 budget was to be released, but the budget will also reflect his â&#x20AC;&#x153;stay the courseâ&#x20AC;? mentality, Watson said. He plans to maintain his commitment to freezing recreation fees, and the focus will be on continuing the Ottawa on the Move program to fix our existing infrastructure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an unlimited supply of dollars to put

into new initiatives. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot on our plate now,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. He reiterated that the highway 174 sinkhole this fall and the Woodroffe Avenue water main break and outdoor water ban in 2011 were good reminders that we need to take care of our existing infrastructure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good reminder of how we need to take care of our basic infrastructure needs first and foremost before we reach too far afield for new projects,â&#x20AC;? Watson said.

For that reason, Watson said he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be supporting a new Main library branch downtown, but he applauded library board chairwoman Coun. Jan Harderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call to find innovative ways to refurbish the existing Metcalfe Street branch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fix what we have instead of reaching beyond our means, at least in the short term,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the prudent approach that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take. I think we need to get the basics right, first and foremost.â&#x20AC;?

Make cycling irresistible to make it a success: expert risk averse, so if conditions encourage them to cycle, it’s probably a good environment for other categories of cyclists, too.

Laura Mueller



Trinity-Spadina MP Olivia Chow spoke to around half of Citizens for Safe Cycling’s 200 members during the group’s Oct. 16 annual general meeting at Tom Brown Arena. distance of about 600 or 800 metres to a major transit hub, encouraging people to cycle to the station can make transit a more attractive option to people who live or work farther away, Buehler said. One public policy that is picking up steam in cyclingfriendly cities around the world is the “green wave”: co-ordinating traffic signals along a street so that they will all be green for someone travelling at approximately the speed of a bicycle.

At the same time that cities create policies to encourage bicycle use, they also need to look at creating disincentives for driving, Buehler said. In Canada, an average of 1.3 per cent of all trips are made by bicycle. That’s slightly higher than the United States, but much lower than the Netherlands – the world leader – at 26 per cent, and even Germany at 10 per cent. Much of that has to do with the traditional use of bicycles that shaped peoples’ attitudes

towards cycling. In North America, it largely began as a recreational pursuit, while in western Europe bicycles have always been under the transportation umbrella. On a local level, Ottawa’s 2.2 per cent bicycle share has a long way to go to catch up to Victoria at 9.5 per cent or Vancouver at 3.7 per cent. One way to get there is to encourage women to bike. Women are an “indicator species,” Buehler said. Research shows that women are more

As Ottawa embarks on its ambitious, $2.1-billion light rail project, Buehler spoke about the mutual benefits of integrating cycling into transit systems. “Integration with public transit can be beneficial for both modes,” Buehler said.

Another speaker, Olivia Chow, MP for Trinity-Spadina in Toronto, brought her message of cycling safety to the meeting as well. Chow is sponsoring a private member’s bill aimed at requiring transport trucks to have sideguards installed – barriers between the cab and the trailer wheels that prevent cyclists and pedestrians from being fatally pulled under the back wheels of a right-turning truck. Not only do the guards save lives, Chow said, in the low run they also reduce emissions and save money on fuel costs for trucks because they make the vehicles more aerodynamic. Safety is also on the minds of Citizens for Safe Cycling members. The group is holding its first-ever bike-light giveaway, with more than 200 lights to be given away to help cyclists make themselves more visible as the days get darker. The event is happening on Nov. 1 from 4 to 6 p.m. at an undisclosed location. Check for the location to be revealed closer to the event.


EMC news - Getting people on bicycles is about convincing them it’s not just something they do – it’s something that’s impossible for them to resist doing. That was the message delivered by keynote speaker Ralph Buehler during the annual general meeting of local bicycle advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling. More than 100 people gathered at Tom Brown Arena in Hintonburg to hear Buehler’s advice, culled from his research as an assistant professor of urban affairs and planning at Virginia Tech University and as the co-author of an upcoming book called City Cycling. Cycling is on an upward trend in cities all around the world, Buehler said, but a comprehensive approach is needed to keep it that way. Building bicycle lanes alone is not enough, Buehler said. If a city really wants to make strides, it needs to consider bike parking, bike-sharing programs, marketing, and broader things like driver education and favourable zoning rules for compact, mixed-use communities. “Public policies are crucial to making cycling more attractive and to make cycling safer,” Buehler said.

EMC news - Y’s Owl Maclure Co-operative Centre, which provides support services for teens and adults with developmental disabilities, celebrated 30 years in the community on Oct. 17. Frances O’Malley is heading up the centre’s Pillar of the Community Project. The project – which celebrates the centre’s anniversary and introduces staff and members to the west-end community – uses a pipe courtesy of the IKEA build site. The pipe will be decorated with mirrored tiles and marbles. The tiles represent adults and marbles represent the children. Once completed, the “pillar” will have a permanent home at Morrison Park. Students from St. Paul’s Catholic High School trekked to the park during lunch hour to paste their marbles to the refurbished pole. Hugh Nelson, co-operative’s executive director, said the centre helps adults in tangible ways.

Their services include job placement and a social group for teens and adults with autism and Asperger Syndrome. “A lot of support programs for people with autism ends once they are in school,” he said. “So we have game nights and other activities.” The co-operative – originally funded by the YMCA – has its offices on Morrison Drive. Nelson said that’s why

celebrating the anniversary at the park was important. “We are going to be going out to businesses in the next couple of months and introduce ourselves,” Nelson said. Building relationships is important because it shows the community the kind of work adults with developmental disabilities can do. “I think a lot of people can be surprised by the kinds of things they are capable of,” he said.

Council ponders lowering garbage bag limit City hopes to hit 60 per cent waste diversion target by 2016

EMC news - City council may ask residents if they are OK with a four-bag limit on garbage day. Garage collection will switch permanently to a biweekly schedule on Oct. 29, meaning trash will be collected every two weeks year round, while organics and recycling bins will be picked up weekly. The move is an effort to bring Ottawa closer to its landfill diversion goal, but it won’t be easy to reduce garbage if the city continues to allow people to put out six bags of garbage every two weeks, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume told the environment committee on Oct. 16. Right now, households are allowed to put out three bags each week, and that number was simply doubled with the collection changes. That’s a high number of bags that no other municipality that offers organics recycling allows, Hume said. Switching to biweekly pickup is expected to divert an additional 10,000 to 20,000 tonnes of organic waste from the landfill, said Dixon Weir, the city’s general manager of environmental services. That

will boost the diversion rate from the current 44 per cent to around 54 per cent. But that still leaves Ottawa 15,000 tonnes short of its 60 per cent diversion target, said Rainer Bloess, the councillor for Innes Ward. “It’s going to undermine our drive to make maximum use of the investment we’ve made in our green bin,” he said. “We’re afraid to take the big step and say we need to do this because it’s the right thing to do.” Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said it would be redundant for city staff to look at a bag-limit reduction in isolation, since there is currently a city-wide waste master plan review happening. TRASH ALERTS

Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said he was also against reducing the garbagebag limit, because the collection changes are already enough of a difficult transition for families. Besides, the bag limit isn’t enforced and there is resistance from people unwilling to use their green bins, so figuring out a way to make the green-bin program work is a better plan, Hubley said.


Garbage collection will change to every two weeks starting Oct. 29, while green bin pick up and recycling will continue to happen every week. The city is currently only focusing on residential waste collection and has yet to roll out the green-bin program to apartment buildings before ICI collection is even considered. Weir said city staff expect to hit the goal of a 60 per cent diversion rate by the end of this new waste contract, which will be in 2016.

The city is offering some high-tech tools to make the transition easier for residents. With the new web-based collection calendar tool, peeking out the front door to see if your neighbours put out their trash will be a thing of the past, IT subcommittee chairman Coun. Tim Tierney said. The tool offers a searchable online calendar, as well

as weekly collection reminders by phone, email or Twitter. You can also choose whether you want the alerts to arrive the evening before or the morning of your collection day. Information can be found at As of last Monday, four days after its launch, there were more than 5,300 search-

Residents have their say about ByWard market Walkability, heritage and traffic calming all priorities for Lowertown Michelle Nash

EMC news - When it comes to living and shopping in the ByWard Market, residents want to see a more pedestrian-friendly approach. The Lowertown Community Association held a community consultation about the ByWard Market on Oct. 15 asking residents to answer two questions: what are the strengths and weaknesses of the market and what are the main things residents would like to see happen in the market. The evening saw nearly 60 eager residents in attendance, including Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who sat at round tables and worked as teams to tackle the two questions. Marc Aubin, president of the Lowertown Community Association, told the group the exercise was an important step in the area’s evolution. “The area is changing, we see the changes, and so it is a good time to rethink the vision of the market,” he said. The last such exercise for the area was done more than 10 years ago. Since then,

residents have become concerned that there is less food retail, the farmers’ market portion of the area is shrinking, all while more bars and restaurants pop up. “We need to learn what the best practices are out there,” Fleury said. “This critical evaluation is very relevant for the future of the market.” At the beginning of the evening, the association released some data from a survey circulated by the association in the summer. More than 160 residents filled out the survey, which showed respondents were looking for more food retail, cited vehicle traffic as a growing concern, indicated new buildings in the area are too tall and that the amount of homelessness and panhandling is on the rise. Interestingly, the association said, safety was listed as little to no concern for residents. The main desire was to have a pedestrian-friendly market. “People should be a priority,” said Vera Etches, an association board member. Each table presented what they felt were the weaknesses of the market, echoing the re-

sults of the survey. After the data and weaknesses were presented, the attendees went back to the drawing board to come up with new, creative ways to make the market a better place. Among the suggestions was the idea of making pedestrian-only areas or turning vehicle traffic away completely on Saturdays and Sundays. The conservation of heritage was also noted as a concern. Some said more emphasis on existing heritage needed to be put in place. The evening was the community’s chance to participate in the ByWard Market “visioning exercise” which began in the spring after the city planning committee and the ByWard Market Business Improvement Area agreed to look at what the market should become and how it should get there. A steering committee was formed, which included members of the community, city staff and the BIA. The city has hired a consulting firm from New York, Project for Public Spaces, to work on the exercise, which will look at the needs and desires for the market. The firm, according to the association’s planning committee chairwoman Sylvia Grenier, held a stakehold-

The evening asked residents to sit at round tables to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the market. ers meeting at the end of September and one this past week, where Grenier passed along a report documenting the community consultation results. The consultation company, she added, was surprised the association went to the effort to hold the community event.

“This is our way to make sure the residents feel a part of the process,” Grenier said. The reason for the community consultation, Grenier said, was to ensure the residents had an opportunity to have their say about the market. Aubin agreed.

“We are doing this because it is one thing for us to say something, but it is quite another to have residents say it themselves,” he said. Fleury said he is looking forward to the Project for Public Spaces report, and implementing any ideas or recommendations.

Important changes are coming on October 29 1. Bi-weekly garbage collection. Household residual garbage will be collected every two weeks.

2. New collection days. If your collection day is changing the City will send you a letter in October.

3. Green bin pickup.

Artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; collective celebrates 20 years in former bread factory Building opens doors to public, resident artists on hand to showcase craft Steph Willems

EMC news - Walking past the imposing Enriched Bread Artists building on Gladstone Avenue and looking at the types of businesses next door, one might legitimately conclude it contained an artisan bakery. While it might have once existed for that use, the heritage industrial building that looms over the O-Train tacks at 951 Gladstone Ave. is now populated not by bakers, but by a host of artists. Paintings, sculptures and wood carvings have replaced bushels of flour and a studious silence now takes the place of the din of mixing machines and industrial ovens. Enriched Bread Artists collective is now celebrating its 20th year occupying the 1924-vintage building that began its life as the prosperous Standard Bread Company. A collective of artists runs the building as a non-profit studio co-operative, offering affordable studio space for approximately 24 artists. Last week the building threw open its doors, allowing the public to tour the nooks and crannies of the expansive building and witness some of the artistic magic occurring within its walls. The atmosphere at the 20th-annual Enriched Bread Artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Open Studio was indeed artsy, but the cash bar, catering and in-house DJ couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much of the credit. Many resident artists were on hand to discuss their craft, and, for one night only, allow the public to tramp

through their personal work space. Danny Hussey has worked out of the building for a long time, and the collection of art filling his studio is a testament to that. From woodcuts to photographs to painting, Husseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio caused many a member of the public to take pause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I arrived here from Nova Scotia while on my way to Toronto, but stayed for 16 years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great space. This kind of building is a rarity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of old industrial buildings in Ottawa.â&#x20AC;? The Enriched Bread Artists take up the first two floors, with another artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group taking occupying the third. The exact number of artists fluctuates slightly as renters move on, but the waiting list for the high-demand space remains long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Commercial rent on space like this is huge,â&#x20AC;? said Hussey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our landlords have been good to us â&#x20AC;Ś They believe in us.â&#x20AC;? A long list of patrons, benefactors and contributors also believe in the artists, and this list â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which includes many friends â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is posted in the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main stairwell. It was friends and contributors who, in 1991, believed in a group of young artists enough to help them turn the dilapidated and abandoned factory into what it is today. Artist Meaghan Haughian is subletting her Enriched Bread studio space from another artist, and says she likes the atmosphere of the building.


Nova Scotia native Danny Hussey is seen in his Enriched Bread Artists studio during the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20th anniversary open house last Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice and quiet,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has their own schedule, but you run into people from time to time.â&#x20AC;? Haughian said that while solitude and quiet is good for concentration, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes beneficial to connect with other human beings during long stretches of work.

Tavi Weisz has worked out of the building for 10 years now. He showed up at the door for the same reason so many others have over the past two decades â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he needed workspace, plain and simple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about having a studio â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a place to paint thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affordable,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Weisz is excited about an exchange program the EBA has with a similar studio in The Hague, the Netherlands. That collective, also started by young university graduates, moved into its own converted bread factory 20 years ago. Seemingly separated at birth, the two collectives

have embarked on an artistexchange program, with 11 artists coming to Ottawa from The Hague, and a group of Ottawa artists heading overseas to take their places for two weeks. A full schedule of 20th anniversary events can be found at 1025.R0011693298

Keeping kids warm, one snowsuit at a time Depot already handed out hundreds Michelle Nash

EMC news - With winter fast approaching, the Snowsuit Fund has already handed out thousands of donated suits and to keep up with the demand, the organization says it needs more hands on deck. “Volunteers are vital to our operation,” said Joanne Andrews, executive director of the fund. The Snowsuit Fund Depot, located at 225 Donald St., officially launched its 2012 campaign on Oct. 16. The launch welcomed cheques from community corporate partners Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire. Bill Houldsworth, a local Tim Hortons store manager, presented the non-profit organization a cheque for $96,157 -money collected through the company’s Smile Cookie campaign. Every $40 raised, Andrews said buys a snowsuit, meaning the Tim Hortons donation will purchase 2,400 snowsuits. But this is a number that barely covers one week’s

worth of demand from clients, Andrews said. “We distribute about 300 to 400 a day, with 5,000 suits distributed so far,” she said. Last year the organization handed out 15,000 suits, a number Andrews said will grow this year. As the only full time employee, Andrews said volunteers are the backbone the organization needs to survive. “The depot is full today with people looking for suits,” Andrews said. “It takes a lot of people’s help to make it run smoothly here and you can really see the difference when we have a group of dedicated volunteers. Without them, we would be able to do what we do.” The Snowsuit Fund opened its doors to families in need in the Ottawa region 31 years ago, providing warm winter clothing, from suits, hats to mitts and scarves. As part of one family that has benefited from the service for the past 15 years, Melanie Barbeau said without it, her family’s home life would be

much harder. “It means a great deal,” Barbeau said. “From extra food, outings, anything, this helps make it easier.” Barbeau’s three-year-old son, Camille, had the chance to pick out a suit at the launch. A hockey fan, he chose an Ottawa Senators snowsuit. This was good news to the honorary co-chairpersons for the fund, Senators defenceman Chris Phillips and his wife, Erin. Thanks to the current National Hockey League lockout, Phillips attended this year’s launch for the first time. “It is an honour to be here and I am proud to help make a difference for families out there in Ottawa,” Phillips said. The Snowsuit Fund campaign will continue throughout the next two months, with the annual Canadian Tire Snowsuit Fund Gala on Nov. 3 at the Ottawa Convention Centre and a telethon to be broadcast on 105.3 Kiss FM, Y101 FM and Chez 106 FM on Dec. 12. Andrews said the depot aims to make sure every child in need is outfitted before the end of the year.


Three year-old Camille Barbeau gets some help from honorary co-chairpersons, Ottawa Senators defenceman, Chris Phillips and his wife Erin with his new snowsuit, an Ottawa Senators suit. The couple joined the Snowsuit Fund board members and community partners for the 2012 fundraiser launch on Oct. 16 at the depot, 225 Donald St. Those interested in volunteering, Andrews said can contact her at 613-746-5143. Everyone is welcome, includ-

ing students looking to fill their volunteer requirements. Monetary or outerwear donations can be made online,

at, or at Canadian Tire, Brown’s Cleaners and the Snowsuit Fund Depot on Donald Street.

Cyclist killed on Bronson Avenue River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière

Street design comes into question in wake of Krista Johnson’s death Staff

EMC news - A 27-year-old cyclist is dead following a collision on Bronson Avenue at approximately 7:45 p.m. on Oct. 18. Krista Johnson, a student at Carleton University, was taken to the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital after being hit by a vehicle while cycling north in the southbound lanes of Bronson, near the Bronson

Avenue Bridge and just south of Holmwood Avenue. She was later pronounced dead. Police closed the southbound lanes in the area for several hours to complete an investigation. News of the death sparked a resurgence of complaints about the unique and dangerous set of cycling conditions that come into play at the north approach to the bridge, including higher speeds and

an exit lane for vehicles that diverts through the existing cycling lane. Photos taken at the scene showed a mangled bicycle resting half on and half off the sidewalk next to the exit lane, and a dark-coloured sedan with front-end damage parked in the exit lane. A memorial was held at Carleton University on Monday morning, and the school’s flags were lowered

to half-mast in memory of the student. An impromptu “ghost bike” memorial was also erected at the scene of the collision, much like the one erected on Queen Street last October to honour cyclist Danielle Naçu following a fatal accident. Johnson was a second year student at Carleton’s School of Social Work, working to complete her Master’s degree.

Green Bin: Organics, such as tables scraps, etc.: Weekly Pickup


Residual Waste: Non-recyclables such as packaging, etc.: Bi-Weekly Pickup

In early 2011, City Council approved changes to the City’s waste collection contract resulting in savings of millions of dollars of taxpayer funds per year. The new contract will also help extend the life of our Trail Road landfill and will reduce the number of trucks on our streets.


In mid September, you should have received your new Waste Collection Calendar in the mail. You can also download a copy and print a personalized calendar by visiting If your collection day is changing, you should also have received a personalized letter in the mail during the week of October 8, 2012 confirming your new collection day.

Ottawa banks pedal for a cure Michelle Nash

EMC news - Wheels were spinning at city hall, where cycling teams from across Ottawa banded together to help

raise money for juvenile diabetes. The Ride for Diabetes Research held its 10th annual ride at city hall on Oct. 19. Riders, including Brian Sehl, manager of the downtown

branch of the National Bank joined 110 teams in Ottawa and more than 24,000 participants across the country over the past few months and help raise money and awareness for the Juvenile Diabetes Re-

Ottawa Senators alumnus Rick Smith rides out his seven minutes of a 40-minute stationary ride at the 10th annual Ride for Diabetes Research, held at city hall on Oct. 19 to help raise money for diabetes research. across the country. The National Bank’s goal this year is to have 200 teams across Canada participate in the ride and attempt to raise more than $280,000 in donations. If successful, the bank will have donated $2.5 million to the foundation over eight years. This year, the research foundation’s cross-country goal is to raise $7.9 million to fund critical type 1 diabetes

research. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation focuses on finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. The foundation is the largest charitable supporter for this research. The funding raised will go directly towards cure, treatment and preventative therapy research. Since launching the ride in 1988, the fundraiser has raised more than $30 million for the cause.

The ride gets teams of five to compete in a 40-minute stationary ride, or seven minutes per rider. The ride takes place in 21 cities from September to November. Teams are awarded incentive prizes for raising the most funds, showing the most spirit, and wearing the best costumes. Sehl, who has participated in the event for the past five years, said the ride can become very exciting. “It can be competitive, it is hard not to, but the best part is watching everyone participate. It is a fantastic experience.” Over the years, Ottawa teams have gone from raising $5,000 to $200,000. National Bank employees raised $25,000 in 2011 and have raised a total of $100,000 over the past five years. The National Bank has supported the foundation’s cycling fundraiser since 2004. Last year, more than 1,275 employees of the National Bank participated in rides

Childhood rival swings into action


Conservatives Support Small Business Forbes magazine stated recently that Canada was the best place in the world to do business. As your Member of Parliament, I appreciate that a large part of that honour is due to the character of Canadaʼs small business entrepreneurs: hard working, passionate, determined, and courageous. Small business is important in Nepean-Carleton. Canadian entrepreneurs work hard creating jobs and growth in communities like ours, locally and across the country. In order to create the best possible business environment for them, our Government remains focused on the economy by keeping taxes low, cutting unnecessary government red tape, promoting Canadian exports to new markets and supporting our entrepreneurs. Canadaʼs small business tax rate has been reduced down to 11 per cent, and our corporate tax rate dropped to 15 per cent this year. Canada is now the most taxcompetitive country among developed G-7 countries according to a recent report by the School of Public Policy. Our government also understands that as we work toward a return to balanced budgets over the medium term, we will do so without raising taxes or cutting transfers to Canadians or the provinces. Across the country, there are 30,000 small business entrepreneurs who export their products and services to markets around the world. Our Governmentʼs ambitious trade plan is deepening relationships with high-growth markets. For example, toward the end of the year, we are looking forward to completing a trade agreement with the European Union which will reduce tariffs to a market comprised of 500 million consumers.

y little friend Velma and I met at the back fence behind the Northcote School. Her feelings about Marguirite were just about the same as mine. How much do you want to bet she is still in her white store-bought underwear that her mother buys in Walkers Store? Our eyes travelled over towards the gate where Marguirite was trying to work herself into a group of Senior Fourth girls who obviously wanted no part of her either. The less any of us had to do with the girl, the better we liked it. It wasn’t that she was so bad, even though we all called her “bad Marguirite.” It was just that she was so privileged. Being an only child gave her a decided advantage and also gave her a sense of self importance that none of us could tolerate. I was very aware of the heavy navy blue fleece lined bloomers I had been forced into a week ago. The weather now had a nip in the air and even a few snowflakes had fallen. There was no doubt fall was upon us and winter wasn’t far behind. It was a long walk to the Northcote School and we never knew when the weather was going to change and catch us without warm clothes. So Mother had long since ordered my sister Audrey into heavier white warm underpants and me into the

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories navy blue fleece lined bloomers we got from the Eaton’s catalogue. I hated them with a passion. “Bet a dollar she doesn’t even own a pair of those bloomers,” Velma said. We looked over at Marguirite. There she was, bouncing around like a rubber ball in a brand new plaid coat with velvet collar, white stockings and her usual black patent leather Mary Jane shoes. “If I had a dollar, I would take you up on that Velma,” I said. “Everyone our age wears those navy bloomers. And I am pretty sure Marguirite’s mother would have her in them by now.” “I don’t think so,” Velma said. With slitted eyes we watched Marguirite at the swinging gate. It was then Velma had a most brilliant idea. It would involve Cecil of course. Everything that had a bit of a risk to it, always involved Cecil. Velma told me to follow her. I was used to that order and walked with Velma over to the gate. The gate had to be kept hooked, because it was on a slant and slammed shut otherwise. Velma called Cecil

Building on these successes, our Government launched the Red Tape Reduction Action Plan this fall to save entrepreneurs time and money. The plan is ambitious and includes common sense solutions to business irritants in areas ranging from tax and payroll to labour, transport and trade. This expands on our actions taken in Economic Action Plan 2012 to help employers hire new workers with the extension of the temporary Hiring Benefit for Small Businesses while also limiting Employment Insurance rate increases. Finally, we introduced the Pooled Registered Pension Plan, providing small business entrepreneurs with a way to provide pensions to their employees. These initiatives demonstrate our Governmentʼs commitment to create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for entrepreneurs and all Canadians.

aside. That in itself was unusual. Cecil had very little to do with we younger girls at the Northcote School. But I saw Velma take something out of her lunch bag and hand it over to Cecil and I saw him nodding and looking over at Marguirite. “Who wants to swing on the gate?” Cecil hollered. We all loved to swing on the gate, and Marguirite was no exception. The young girls from Junior Third all yelled at once, but since the gate would only hold one at a time, Cecil pointed to Marguirite and said she could go first. Velma beckoned me over and we stood close to the action. Cecil said you could get a better swing if you put yourself higher on the gate and bent over. He made Marguirite climb up near the top and then pushed her over so that her head was hanging down on the other side of the gate. I was surprised she went for it. Marguirite never took orders from anyone. Cecil stood on the side of the gate where her head was, and he ran the gate closed and then gave it a mighty

heave and running, swung it wide open. Marguirite squealed with glee and Cecil gave her another ride for good measure. Then when the ride was over he accidentally pushed her off to the ground and she went spread eagle, head over tea kettle. I have no idea how he did it, but Cecil was able to have her land with her new plaid coat and everything under it around her shoulders. There for the entire Northcote School to see was her storebought underwear from Walker Store, as white as the driven snow. No navy blue fleece lined bloomers for Marguirite. Velma just smiled in my direction, nodded to Cecil and we all lined up to go into school as Miss Crosby stood on the step ringing the big brass bell. I asked Velma how she was able to get Cecil into the act. She said it cost her two molasses cookies. That night at home, without giving Mother the details (I knew she would never approve of such shenanigans), I told her that Marguirite didn’t have to wear navy blue fleece lined bloomers and I could see no reason why I had to. Mother said she didn’t care if even Princess Margaret Rose didn’t wear them or didn’t even own a pair, I would be wearing the navy blue fleece lined bloomers and there would be no further discussion.

cussed this, quite emotionally at times, about how we can all benefit from this.” Since purchasing the heritage property from the city three years ago, the service centre has heard many concerns voiced by community members. A feasibility study on redeveloping the property was conducted, followed by the presentation of a concept to the public over a year ago. A $4-million investment from the Ontario government late last year allowed the owners to move forward with their plans to open a multi-service community centre. “Roger and his group have done tremendous work to ensure this project fits in better and better,” commented Taylor. The current plans concern only the first phase of the redevelopment - the school’s renovation, addition of a gymnasium and associated parking spots totaling 73. A second phase of the plan, for which there is currently no funding, would add a co-operative senior’s housing project and, later, long-term care facility. “When we signed the deal with the city, it was clear that we had to preserve the architecture of the school building,” said Farley. “We looked at how to maximize space while preserving green space.” Neighbours on adjacent

Rob Roy Court and Pinewood Crescent had previously voiced concern over people parking on their streets to access the site on foot. In response, plans show the perimeter of the site completely fenced, with only one existing pedestrian opening remaining on the south side, off of Pinewood. That presence of that open walkway seemed to divide the residents in attendance, with half wanting it to be closed from the outset. The others voiced advocated keeping it open, unless it proves to be a problem at some point in the future. Farley said the francophone service centre is fine with either option. Taylor said he will continue to collect feedback from the community in order to decide what option to go for. “The more we talked about it (at the meeting), the more it seemed like it wouldn’t be a problem,” said Taylor. “There’s no official decision yet.” Once the feedback period passes sometime next week, the results will be sent to the service centre and they will submit their official plan to the city not too long after that. Farley said the service centre wants the renovated building to be open by January of this year, a timeline Taylor describes as “ambitious.”

Ottawa set to welcome new street vendors City drafts looser food-truck rules, adds more parking spots Laura Mueller

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Looser proposed rules governing food trucks in the city would mean that 20 vehicles would be able to begin operating next year, but some councillors are worried the changes will make Ottawa look like a nanny state. The eased licensing laws for food trucks are meant to inspire creative chefs and entrepreneurs to expand the street-food offerings in Ottawa. To that end, the process will include a selection panel that would be charged with ensuring the new offerings contribute to making the city more vibrant, but not to dictate menu items. The panel is meant to ensure the best and most creative new vendors get a crack at one of the 20 new spaces (there are also 16 existing vacant spots), said Bay Ward Coun. Mark Taylor, the chairman of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community and protective services committee. The new rules still have to be endorsed by full city council, but Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee voted in support of the changes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with all members expect

for College Ward Coun. Rick Chiarelli in favour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our job is to determine how many vehicles there should be and where they should be and leave it up to the vendors to decide what to serve,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not our job to engineer menus.â&#x20AC;? Councillors Jan Harder (Barrhaven) and Eli El-Chantiry (West Carleton-March) also expressed concerns about the risk of dictating the type of food to be served, but they voted in support of the rules in the end. But Philip Powell, the city staffer who worked on the new rules, said they were specifically designed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;look bigâ&#x20AC;? and be flexible instead of being prescriptive. He said the looser regulations are an opportunity for â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultural celebrationâ&#x20AC;? in the city. Taylor said he hopes ethnic cuisines and hip, urban foods take over from hot dogs and poutine. Aside from a Thai-themed truck near city hall and Stone Soupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck at the University of Ottawa, there is very little variety in Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s street food. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not because the city


The city has drafted new food-truck rules in hopes of seeing more unique street-food vendors like Dung Liâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thai soup truck that has parked at Elgin and Lisgar streets in Centretown for the past five months. tells vendors what to sell, but rather because the restricted size of the trucks allowed limits food storage and cooking options, Taylor said. Easing the restriction even slightly from one metre wide to 1.2 metres wide will make a positive difference, said street-food vendor Terry Scanlon. He has operated his truck for 30 years, but says he

welcomes the new rules that will bring more vendors like him to the streets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know from experience, you have to have the space to produce the product,â&#x20AC;? Scanlon said. Scanlon also supports a regulated distance of 46 metres between a food truck and a restaurant. The distance can breed tension between street vendors

and traditional restaurants because lower overhead costs mean the trucks can undercut the prices restaurants charge. Maintaining the right distance reduces tension, Scanlon said. Powell looked to international street-food leaders like Portland, Ore., to compare rules. In Portland, the vast majority of food trucks are

Apply now for neighbourhood liveability funding Laura Mueller

EMC news - Neighbourhoods can apply if they want up to $30,000 for local projects to build stronger, connected communities. Applications will be accepted until Nov. 27 for a chance to be one of three or four neighbourhoods selected to be part of the Better Neighbourhoods Program. The program is the first

initiative of the new Neighbourhood Connection Office, which was announced by Mayor Jim Watson and planning committee chairman and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume during the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Planning Summit last spring. The officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to help residents build stronger communities by giving them tools â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and money â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to identify and implement local projects. Those projects could include

making streets more walkable, revitalizing a park or even public art projects. The officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first initiative will be a pilot project in the Woodpark and Woodroffe North neighbourhoods in Bay ward. Those communities are aging and changing, Bay Coun. Mark Taylor told the EMC in June. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common refrain at city hall; many of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more popular urban neighbourhoods, especially those

that are experiencing intensification, call for community design plans (CDPs) for their neighbourhoods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;City terminology is confusing,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they are really saying is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want our community intensified.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But the reality is that CDPs incentivize development.â&#x20AC;? For neighbourhoods that are already developed or developing, a plan created by the Neighbourhood Connections Office is a better idea, he said. While there is a lot of time and energy spent planning new subdivisions, the older urban neighbourhoods donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have plans for how they will adapt, Taylor said. Communities selected for the program will work with city staff from the Neighbourhood Connection Office

to use questionnaires, online campaigns and public meetings to identify opportunities and shortcomings in their areas. Residents will also be able to post ideas and then vote and comment on the suggestions. The funding of up to $30,000 per community will be allocated to three or four smaller projects, however, there is an opportunity to pursue larger projects. Those big projects would go through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget process. Priority will be given to neighbourhoods that are not already actively involved in other city planning initiatives. To apply, a community must: * Have the support of its ward councillor. * Have demonstrated vol-

unteer capacity to work with city staff. * Be willing to enter into an agreement that clearly outlines human and financial resource expectations, roles and responsibilities for both the city and the neighbourhood organization that is applying. The types of projects that are likely to win support include pop-up projects: initiatives that are mobile and make creative use of public spaces. That includes a party in a local park, a community cafĂŠ, or events that could make use of vacant or underused space. Pilot projects are also encouraged. These experimental initiatives help the city evaluate whether a new idea works and whether it could be replicated in other neighbourhoods across the city. The application call lists ideas such as local economic revitalization, neighbourhood energy audits or urban-design measures to make areas more attractive to businesses, pedestrians and cyclists. Stock projects are also being encouraged. These types of projects have already been proven to work in other areas and could be expanded to a new neighbourhood. Examples listed are bicycle-share programs, local food markets and murals. More information about the project and application process can be found at

Interprovincial bridge report released Michelle Nash

tions which, for Ottawa, took place on June 12 at the Shenkman Arts Centre. The report indicated 1,033 people attended the consultation, with 420 comment sheets filled out at the meeting. Of the areas residents commented on, 118 comments, or 62 per cent, questioned the planning process and the justification for the project. At the June 12 meeting, community association band-

ed together to spread the message of no bridge in any of the three corridors proposed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are fundamental flaws in the weighting process which chose these three corridors in the first place,â&#x20AC;? said Christophe Credico, head of the Manor Park Community Association bridge committee during the rally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has pitted communities against each other and does not even consider east-to-west city traffic.â&#x20AC;?

Following the third round of public consultation, set to begin this fall, the corridor results will be announced. This round of consultations will look at developing a preliminary design and completing the environmental assessment. A fourth round will take place, only following a decision to further explore the topranked corridor. The NCC has only committed to a study to determine where a bridge should go. No funding or commitment has been made to build a bridge.

EMC news - More than half of the residents who attended the National Capital Commission-led public consultations on where a new east-end interprovincial bridge should go named poor planning and lack of justification for a bridge as their main concerns. It has been more than a year since the National Capital

Commission awarded RocheGenivar the environmental assessment contract to determine which east-end corridor, Kettle Island, Lower Duck Island or McLaurin Bay, would have the least impact on area residents. The latest report on the consultation process concerning an east-end interprovincial bridge was released on Oct. 12. The report looks at the second round of public consulta-

In the report, a total of 237 comments, or 42 per cent of the comments looking at alignments, supported the â&#x20AC;&#x153;no bridgeâ&#x20AC;? campaign. Five of the community associations that started the â&#x20AC;&#x153;no bridgeâ&#x20AC;? message also commissioned a report from planning expert Dr. Robert Freilich to critique the study. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no public necessity or public purpose in simply building another bridge to run through Ottawa and Gatineau neighbourhoods and business centers, while doing nothing to address wider regional sustainability needs,â&#x20AC;? Freilich wrote.

Olympic cross-country skier Perianne Jones appears at an Oct. 16 fundraiser and ski-waxing workshop at the Britannia Yacht Club.

Britannia ski workshop aids Olympic skier Steph Willems

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When you embrace a sport as thoroughly as Canadian cross-country skier Perianne Jones, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bound to pick up a few helpful tips along the way. In the world of crosscountry skiing, eliminating resistance is key to pulling ahead of the pack, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Jones and husband Joel Jaques aimed to teach at their

Oct. 16 waxing workshop and fundraiser at the Britannia Yacht Club. Jones, an Almonte native who competed at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and won a World Cup medal in Milano, Italy last year, will be heading to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Jaques is a wax technician with the national ski team. The event was organized chiefly by cross-country skier and amateur sports supporter

Bill Fenton, with silent auction prizes donated by a number of local businesses and organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Fenton) was a volunteer at the Vancouver Games and is a part of the Ottawa ski community,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really awesome.â&#x20AC;? Jones addressed the participants in a presentation titled The Road to Sochi before joining Jaques in the Learn to Wax Like a Pro workshop. She was introduced by cross-

Pet Adoptions

surrounding Olympians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Jones) still has to fundraiseâ&#x20AC;Ś. Cross-country training takes up 600 hours a year, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than cyclists or runners. She needs all the help she can get.â&#x20AC;? Now 27, Jones started skiing at age three and quickly saw the sport grew into a lifestyle. She entered professional competition following high school, participating in the World Junior Championship in 2003 before moving on to the senior level. With her sights set on Sochi, Jones still has lots of training and competition to complete before February 2014, a schedule that includes a date with the World Championships this coming February. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The World Championships are our main focus right now,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After that, going forward, we get into the small details. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll actually be going to Sochi this year, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to test out that venue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stop on the world tour.â&#x20AC;? Jones was thankful for the opportunity to take part in a fundraising workshop like this one, and was grateful to her supporters. The skills learned in a waxing workshop, as insignificant a part of the sport as it may sound, can actually make a big difference, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before any race, a team of eight wax technicians sets up in a room,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge part of our sport â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you can lose a race pretty badly if you use the wrong wax.â&#x20AC;?

country Olympian and Hall of Fame member Sue Holloway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back in the day I had one pair of skis and waxed them now and then,â&#x20AC;? recalled Holloway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a lot of changes since that time.â&#x20AC;? Holloway said there are now skis for every conceivable condition, joking that the art of ski waxing now â&#x20AC;&#x153;requires a PhD in chemistry and a gas mask.â&#x20AC;? Calling Jones â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the top women in Canada and

the world,â&#x20AC;? Holloway said the road to the top is a difficult and costly one, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convinced that â&#x20AC;&#x153;this girl can do it all.â&#x20AC;? Olympians might pick up corporate sponsorships for sports gear, but they still have to pay their own way to the Games, and that bill rises fast. Despite currently living in Canmore, Alta. for training purposes, Jones remains a huge presence in the Ottawa ski community, and residents were only too happy to help her achieve her dreams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Jones) is a good friend of mine,â&#x20AC;? said Fenton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I reached out to (Chris Bloch-Hansen) of Fresh Air Experience and we put a committee together. Tonight is the result of that.â&#x20AC;? Fresh Air Experience sponsored Jones for a period of 10 years when she competed with the Nakkertok Ski Club and is heavily involved in helping young athletes get their start in professional competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best way to get support as a young athlete is from grassroots organizations,â&#x20AC;? said Fenton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great thing to be involved in, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun. I felt it was important to reach out.â&#x20AC;? Bloch-Hansen called the ski community in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x153;the tightest, most close-knit communityâ&#x20AC;? heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever seen, thus, many are willing to help when a member achieves the success seen by Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone figures that when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the Canadian National Ski Team, you get funding,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to the common misconception

General Care Rabbits make good pets for a family, but children should not be expected to look after a rabbit without parental help. Small children need to be supervised. Rabbits should be lifted with their weight fully supported, never by the scruff of the neck or ears. They can be easily injured through improper handling. Brush your rabbitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coat daily and trim his nails every few weeks.

Two victories for Day clan Dan Plouffe

EMC sports - A doubledouble is usually reserved for coffee drinkers or basketball players, but Kanata’s Day family achieved their own unique cross-country running double-double at the high school city championships on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility. Grade 9 Holy Trinity Catholic High School athlete Owen Day kicked off the day with a commanding victory by over a minute in the midget boys race, and older brother Mickey closed it with a solid senior boys triumph several hours later. It was the second time Mickey was part of a double Day dominance – he won the midget boys crown back in Grade 9 when his older brother Kieran took the senior prize. “We completed what we wanted to do,” said Mickey, who was proud to celebrate the fulfillment of what’s become a family tradition of excellence. “It was a good moment.” Earlier, he’d greeted Owen with a hug after his younger sibling made his high school debut by opening up an early lead and continuing to add to it, crossing the finish line of the five-kilometre event in 17 minutes, 39 seconds. “With all my friends and

my family, it was just a great feeling to come down and see everyone there waiting for me,” Owen recalls. “My brothers and my dad have all done it, so I really wanted to do it. It’s very exciting.” The four Day males sometimes run together in the woods near their house, although Mickey and Kieran are the more frequent running pair since their gap in age isn’t as significant as ability level. “We probably should start bringing (Owen) along now,” says Mickey, who won his 7K race in 21:41. “He trains a lot harder than my older brother or I had at that age. I’m expecting good things from him this year. He’s got two older brothers, so he’s got to try to go after us with everything he’s got.” Mickey ran alongside A.Y. Jackson Secondary School athletes Brendon Howard and Alec Jarvis for most of the race until making his break after a hill and cruising in for a 57-second victory. He missed having last year’s national capital silver medalist Alex Berhe to push him in the race, however. The pair are always side-by-side in races, but Berhe wasn’t able to compete since his Woodroffe school did not enter a team due to the teachers’ labour dispute with the province. “He’s really fast and a great guy. He’s very fun to run

with,” Mickey said. “Him and his coach came to visit and watch the race, so that was nice.” Howard and Jarvis were also affected by the labour conflict. They’d moved into training programs for crosscountry skiing and triathlon respectively for a two-week period before their fall season was resurrected when parents stepped up to coach the team. Around a dozen Ottawa public school board teams were missing from this year’s event, including one of the usual powerhouses, Colonel By. Regardless of who lined up, the Glebe Collegiate Institute junior girls team of Katherine Marshall, Alexa Livingstone, Claire Smith, Zoe Pritchard and Emma Barrett were prepared to take anyone on. They earned a remarkable four of the first five positions, and five of the top seven, en route to a near-perfect team score of 11 placement points. As midgets last year, the Glebe girls earned antiquebronze for fourth place at the OFSAA provincial championships, and are poised to make a run for the top spot on the podium this year. The team is boosted by newcomers Marshall – a midget-aged athlete who was the surprise winner of the junior race – and Pritchard, a transfer student from Iowa.


High school cross country running city championships took place on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility. “I can’t remember the last time a team from Ottawa has won OFSAA,” said Glebe coach Kirk Dillabaugh, noting that every girl has beaten every other girl on his team over the course of the season. “I know we’ve had a couple silver medals in the past 10 years, but to win it, that’d be fun.” On top of the benefits from training with their top competitors, the Glebe team members enjoy having each other there

during races. They ran as a bright yellow pack in the city final, along with one streak of blue from St. Joseph’s Meagan Adams. “It makes the races a lot less scary when you’re running it with people that you know,” said Smith, who’s hoping previous OFSAA experience under their belts will pay dividends. “Last year we didn’t know what to expect. It was really intimidating. So hopefully this year we’ll be

more prepared.” The other individual race winners were Brookfield’s Olivia Robertson (senior girls), Glebe’s Alex Bernst (junior boys) and Earl of March’s Sophie Rodenburg (midget girls). Glebe came within one race of sweeping every team competition, missing only the senior boys’ crown, where Nepean edged them in a tiebreaker as both schools finished with 69 points.

Feed Your Head presents

Films for Mental Health

Featuring two great documentary films produced by the ISF Screening will be followed by a question and answer period led by

Kent MacLeod, BSc, Clinical Pharmacist, and Dominika Zarzeczny, ND FEED YOUR HEAD (45 min)

Do Our Thoughts, Moods and Behaviours Depend upon What We Eat?

About the life and work of Dr. Abram Hoffer, this documentary won the Founder’s award “for an outstanding production exemplifying historical Canadian characters or events” at the Yorkton Film Festival in Saskatchewan. Shot across Canada from 2006 to 2009, the film tells the story of Dr. Hoffer and Humphry Osmond, who met in 1951 and embarked on a quest to find what psychiatry said didn’t exist: a cure for schizophrenia. They showed that mental illness could be controlled with natural foods, healthy lifestyles, and large doses of vitamins. Linus Pauling called this approach “orthomolecular.” Sixty years later thousands have been helped by these heretical ideas, and educated consumers want more common sense in mental health care.


Hosted by actress Margot Kidder, who suffered from bipolar disorder, the documentary chronicles the experiences of patients and doctors who went beyond conventional psychiatry to find answers in orthomolecular medicine. Margot and other patients discuss their mental illness, their difficulties in getting answers and their final recoveries using diet, vitamins and a minimum of pharmacological intervention. Doctors including Abram Hoffer, Hugh Riordan, and Hyla Cass, describe their therapeutic methods, and their professional satisfaction at seeing patients recover from the “incurable.” Kent MacLeod is a Clinical Pharmacist and Director of NutriChem Compounding Pharmacy and Clinic. Named the 2009 Canadian Compounding Pharmacist of the Year, Kent is a published author and has lectured throughout North America. Dominika Zarzeczny is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. Having recently joined NutriChem’s clinical team, she is dedicated to providing comprehensive and effective natural health care for her patients while teaching the principles of healthy living.
