EMC news - A site plan application recently received by the city calls for yet another multi-storey condo building in the Wellington West area, but this project differs from recent developments by the fact it is being embraced by the community. Windmill Development Group was clearly aiming to gain a presence in a rapidly gentrifying, trendy community when it snapped up the now abandoned Wally Becker and Son used car lot at the southwest corner of Wellington Street West and Irving Avenue. While the site plan for the six-storey structure at 1000 Wellington St. West calls for some minor variances in terms of zoning, overall the project falls within the land uses – and scale – required under a traditional main street zoning. With 57 residential units atop ground-floor commercial space and a single underground parking level, the developer is aiming for LEED Platinum status for environmental conservation and efficiency. Contrasting materials mean the building wouldn’t have a uniform facade. “It’s a funky design,” said Kevin Farrell of Windmill Developments. “We think it will add texture to the streetscape. Our architect wasn’t interested in producing a cookie-cutter design.” Recent projects on the fringes of the community have aimed for greater building heights. See PROPOSED, page 2

Vision for Westboro plaza revealed End of Winston Street could become public space by next summer Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – Bistro tables, decorative vines and people meeting up are not things you’re likely to see on Winston Street these days, but next summer that could change. The city’s urban design group unveiled a possible new look for the southern end of Winston last week, one which would make the dead-end portion of the Westboro street a versatile public space.

Following a request from the adjacent Royal Canadian Legion branch to the office of Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs about one year ago, city planners and members of the community have been looking at how to make the space useful for residents. The dead end is adjacent to Richmond Road and serves as the storefront for the Piggy Market bakery, as well as the loading and delivery zones for both the legion and a Dairy Queen. Legion president David

Lewis was the man who made that initial call. “It’s a blah, drab area in a trendy, hot neighbourhood,” said Lewis. “Why not try and spruce it up – make it a little nicer?” A previous public open house served to collect ideas, while the Oct. 30 open house, held at the legion, served to elicit feedback on an actual design. That design showed space for impromptu seating (and eating) at easily removable

tables bracketed by low planters and lattice-type walls for Virginia Creeper vines to grow on. The entrance onto the Richmond Road sidewalk would contain three flagpoles for the legion – something Lewis and the other legion members applaud. “From the legion’s point of view, the flagpoles are a real highlight,” said Lewis. “Right now our flagpoles are attached to the building, and we have to hang out the window to change them.” See NEW, page 11

Students Win Youth Futures Bursaries

Your Community Newspaper

Just last month, the Hintonburg Community Association walked away with concessions from developer Claridge Homes after a settlement was granted prior to an Ontario Municipal Board appeal of the 23-storey project. With Windmill’s project, which went on the market as The Eddy less than two weeks ago, the community reaction has been one of curiosity, with neighbours filtering through the sales centre to have a peek at the project details.

Prior to the issue of a site plan, Windmill had met with residents to hear them out on what they wanted to see built within their community. Their response was to see something built within the zoning, which would satisfy the area community design plan. “This is really different,” said Farrell. “People were coming in and saying ‘these guys listened to us and asked us what we wanted.’” Jeff Leiper, president of the Hintonburg Community Association, had positive things to say of his experience with

Windmill. “I’ve always liked working with them,” he said. They try to build what’s allowed in a zoning. We talked to them months ago … and we’re really encouraged that a developer is building something within the CDP.” While initial designs called for one floor of underground parking totalling 28 spots, the developer has added a revision to allow for an automated “stacker” parking system, allowing for 51 spots. The actual mechanics of such a garage – the first pro-

posed for an Ottawa condominium building – allows people to drive onto a ground floor pad, leave their vehicle, press a button and have their car disappear through the floor, where it is stacked in an underground inventory. Given the zoning variances being asked for call for the elimination of dedicated visitor and commercial parking spots, the question of whether some spots will be available for non-resident use has come up. Windmill could not be reached to comment on this by press time.

EMC news - The weather was ominous on Oct. 30 thanks to the remnants of superstorm Sandy, but the students of Woodroffe Public School paid it no mind. They were too busy giving their school’s new playground a long-awaited trial run. After going a full year without a play structure following the removal of its dilapidated predecessor, the kids now have a place to be active and adventurous. School officials began meeting to find a way to replace it a year before the structure was dismantled. “It was considered not safe and removed for a year – that increased the urgency of finding a replacement,” said Jean Byrne, a parent council member who headed up the school’s playground renewal committee. Byrne joined principal Kim Power, vice-principal Monik Beauchemin, trustee Theresa Kavanaugh and Bay Coun. Mark Taylor in cutting the ribbon on the $70,000 play structure and landscaping project. The students had been surveyed so that the most popular – and therefore fun – elements were incorporated into the project’s design. “We put up a drawing in the school (showing the options available) and we had the kids put a pin on what features they liked,” said Power. In trying to raise funds, renewal committee members left no stone unturned. They searched for both private and public funding, from businesses, individuals, municipal grants and even a developer. Byrne gave her sincerest thanks to the community at the event, detailing the “hundreds of donations from community businesses and individuals.” Special thanks went out to the City of Ottawa, which provided a capital grant of $7,500 towards the project, a sum matched by the public school board. A $10,000 donation came from the Malhotra Family Foundation, itself founded by Claridge Homes. Claridge is currently building a retirement home close to the school site and the donation fulfils the foundation’s mandate of improving the communities in which the builder operates. Local businesses, espe-

cially those within the Carlingwood Shopping Centre, made their own donations. After having the site prepared over the summer, construction of the new play structure took just three days in early October. “I’m super excited about this,” said Kavanaugh. “Play structures age and it’s up to the school councils to kick-start projects like this.” The renewal committee will next help Severn Public School with its own playground renewal. That school has a smaller student body and surrounding community to work with, so Woodroffe was happy to lend their assistance after achieving success with their own project. On average, a children’s play structure has a lifespan of 20 years. With Ministry of Education budgets stretched thin due to an expanding population and aging infrastructure, parents and community members now play a large role in realizing improvements like the one seen at Woodroffe Public School.

Westboro mom’s Kilimanjaro climb a fundraising success steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - There are pockets of Arctic climate to be found in Africa, but in order to see them you’d better be prepared to do some legwork. Westboro’s Joscelyn Coolican found this out last month as she and 21 other climbers scaled Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest peak, to help raise funds for clean water infrastructure. The Kilimanjaro: Climb for Life campaign was organized by WaterCan, an Ottawabased charity that has brought clean water to 1.2 million people in developing nations since 1987. Coolican had been training regularly since deciding to make the late-October ascent as an adventurous and philanthropic way of marking her 40th birthday. “For a lot of us the most memorable part of the trip was the time spent visiting the communities that WaterCan supports,� said the married mother of two. “It was very moving, and gave us some perspective on what WaterCan does. That part was actually what I went for – it had the most impact.� Of course, the breathtaking view from the upper slopes of the 5,895-metre peak didn’t disappoint, either. “The climb itself was amazing – more than I expected,�

said Coolican. “The beauty of the mountain was incredible. Pictures don’t do it justice.� Exhaustion and altitude sickness were constant companions for some of the climbers, including Coolican, who was forced to turn back just shy of the summit due to vision impairment. However, the climb, the camaraderie, and the excellent skill and motivation provided by the group’s guide – a veteran climber who had scaled

Mount Everest – made the climb a fulfilling experience. The scenery wasn’t the only aspect of the trip that surpassed expectations. The planned fundraising goal of $10,000 was exceeded to a huge degree, with the current total sitting at just above $269,000. “They say that $25 can buy water for life for one person,� said Coolican. “Obviously, different communities will have different infrastructure

needs, but clearly this money will make a difference for many people.� Despite being perpetually active in recreation, Coolican said she will likely take it a bit easier following this trip of a lifetime.

“For me, I think I’ll stick a little closer to sea level for the time being,� she joked, adding, “I’m so happy to have been able to participate in the climb.� Coolican echoes the sentiment of other climbers when

she said she would like to continue assisting WaterCan in their efforts. “There were a lot of creative thinkers who participated in the climb – all of us would like to do more,� said Coolican.

City to put some new businesses on fast track Program aimed at adding private sector jobs to local economy Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news – Mayor Jim Watson announced two new projects aimed at boosting private sector jobs in Ottawa last week. One of the ideas, called the Capital Investment Track, would see the city’s economic development staff “shepherd” all the permits and applications they need to fast-track their entry into the Ottawa market. New businesses looking to come to Ottawa or local businesses that want to expand would qualify if they offer the potential to create or retain 100 or more jobs, or if the industry is considered to be one of the priority sectors outlined in the city’s economic development strategy: life sciences, photonics, wireless, “clean tech,” aerospace and defence, film/television/digital media and tourism. “Through this program, the city will select projects, investments or developments based on their potential to create at least 100 quality, wellpaying private-sector jobs to receive special attention from the economic development

department,” Watson said during his speech to the business community during the inaugural State of the Economy event at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier on Nov. 1. The move is aimed at cutting some red tape for some businesses, but at least one councillor thinks it doesn’t go far enough. West Carleton-March councillor and Deputy Mayor Eli El-Chantiry said the project sounds like a good idea, but said the city needs to do more to make it easier for any business to come to Ottawa and create jobs. “I don’t want to be critical of the mayor,” he said. “What he is saying is …’We have to do more to draw those investments to our city and to our nation’s capital.’ “To be honest … I am never comfortable with municipalities picking and choosing between companies. All the companies coming to our city creating new jobs and creating new jobs – we should welcome all of the initiatives,” El-Chantiry said. “We need to change the way the city does business.” Talking to reporters after his speech, the mayor said

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Mayor Jim Watson addresses the local business community during the inaugural State of the Economy lunch at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier on Nov. 1. the initiative will probably help five or six businesses a year. That’s the total number of businesses of that size that staff expect will approach the city each year. “Given what’s happening with the state of our economy and the fact that we’ve actually seen the unemployment rate go up over the last couple of months and we see the trend

in terms of the shrinking public service, we have to be more aggressive and try a number of measures to attract more businesses to create more economic opportunities,” the mayor said. “If we can offer what could be considered a higher level of service that is going to attract those companies that bring jobs, then I’m all for it.” A former small business-

man himself, El-Chantiry said bureaucratic delays have an even worse impact on entrepreneurs who want to set up a small business and that’s something he wants to change. El-Chantiry sits on a group with economic development staff and said he is always working behind the scenes to cut red tape.

The focus on “high-paying jobs” is also something that concerned El-Chantiry, who said Ottawa needs any and all types of jobs. But overall, El-Chantiry was just happy to see an effort being made to attract businesses, because Ottawa hasn’t done much in that regard in the past compared to other large cities, he said. “You have to put something on the table,” he said. The Capital Investment Track program won’t cost any extra money -- the economic development department will shift around staff time to make it happen. Another announcement Watson made was the addition of a statistics and mapping tool called Locate Ottawa. The maps, which can be found at locateottawa.ca, contains information on demographics, workforce profiles and consumer expenditures for different areas of the city. It’s aimed at helping businesses decide the best location for them in Ottawa and highlighting development opportunities for investors. “This tool makes Ottawa more accessible to the world, and the world’s investors,” Watson said. It will cost the city $38,000 annually for the next three years, with an option to renew.

Low turnout for city’s central budget consultation Lack of criticism indicates support for ‘stability’ budget, mayor says laura.mueller@metroland.com

R0011609187_0913

EMC - A sparse turnout and a series of lengthy thankyou speeches characterized a low-key city budget public consultation on Nov. 1. Fewer than 10 questions were posed to city staff during the afternoon meeting at city hall – the third of four consultations scheduled around Ottawa to discuss the city’s spending plan for 2013. Mayor Jim Watson said the lack of attendance indicates general satisfaction with the budget, whereas in years past, hundreds of angry residents would show up in protest when they didn’t like something in the budget proposal. “I think there is generally a sense that people are glad this isn’t a slash-and-burn exercise,� Watson said. “It’s not a particularly flashy budget, which I think at this time in our economic stage, people are looking for that kind of stable approach.� Watson said the city has scheduled one afternoon budget consultation in each of the past couple of years to give an opportunity for people who can’t come out to the rest of the meetings in the evening. “We wanted to give people an option of one afternoon because all the other meetings are in the evenings,� Watson said. In 2011, the daytime consultation was the most heavily attended, Watson said. That wasn’t the case this year, with fewer than 20 members of the public in attendance at the 4 p.m. meeting. The session began with a presentation from city staff about the draft 2013 budget, which is scheduled to be debated by council and put to a vote on Nov. 28. The city’s “stay the course� draft budget means the average homeowner in the urban area would pay an extra $67 on the municipal portion of their tax bill next year. It’s the smallest tax increase in six years and at 2.09 per cent, it falls below city council’s commitment to

keep tax hikes to 2.5 per cent each year. The mayor said it’s a plan that mostly sees city services maintained and the continuation of existing projects, but not a lot of new spending. Representatives from the National Capital Heavy Construction Association continued their campaign to urge city officials to spend more on infrastructure renewal. Former mayoral candidate Mike McGuire bemoaned the city’s move to biweekly garbage pickup and questioned the amount of money it would save the city. He was also concerned about the city’s debt level, saying there is never a “good time� to borrow money. City treasurer Marian Simulik called McGuire’s comments “alarmist� and said Ottawa’s debt is nowhere near a crisis level and is actually low per capita when compared to other large Canadian cities. But most of the residents in attendance had positive things to say about the city’s spending on the arts, heritage and culture. Watson said people thanking him for the $1 million investment in the Arts, Heritage and Culture Plan had become a reoccurring theme during the consultations.

The city has initiated its budget consultation process ahead of a Nov. 28 vote by council. “I think they were pleasantly surprised that we had passed that arts report that asked for $1 million and in fact we’re delivering on it,� Watson said. “I think there was almost a bit of surprise that: ‘Oh good, they said one thing and they actually did it.’� In the past, councils would pass reports and then for-

get about funding them by the time the budget rolled around, Watson said. “In years gone by there were massive cuts proposed to arts and culture, so it’s nice to have turned the corner and brought in a budget that doesn’t have a lot of big cuts and doesn’t have a lot of big spending, but is very much balanced,� he said.

City’s economic growth strategy on wrong track

T

he mayor’s latest bid to boost the local economy falls short in scope and runs the risk of at least being perceived as favouring certain businesses over others. During an event hosted last week by Mayor Jim Watson, a program called the Capital Investment Track was announced. Watson said the program would see the city provide assistance to business initiatives based on the potential to create at least

100 “quality – well-paying – private sector jobs.� Economic development staff would help shepherd these projects through the city’s regulatory and administrative regime, making them the system’s top priority. This program, while not an inherently bad idea – it’s aimed at attracting investment and creating jobs – puts the city in the position where it is picking and choosing what sorts of investment comes to Ottawa. On top

of the 100-job threshold, applicants from the life sciences, photonics, wireless, clean technology, aerospace, defence, film and television production, digital media and tourism sectors would also be considered for the Capital Investment Track. While this might appear to apply to a significant number of opportunities, in fact these employers represent a small fraction of the overall economy. Businesses with 100 or more people on the payroll

represent only 2.5 per cent of all employers in Ontario. In addition, with the exception of the tourism industry, the list of favoured sectors represents only a small slice of the total number of employers in the province and the types of jobs created would favour those with specialized experience and education. This means the city is offering to cut red tape for a group of businesses, including larger, better-financed firms, that are less likely to

need help navigating city hall than a business that employs four people, for example. Such small businesses represent more than 55 per cent of all employers in the province, and are often financed through the personal savings of the business owner. If the city truly wanted to attract investment, it would focus its efforts on cutting red tape for all types of businesses. This would maximize the potential number of jobs that could be created in

the city and would ensure opportunities are generated for residents from all walks of life, not just the highly educated. The spirit of the Capital Investment Track program is in the right place: helping to grow and diversify the city’s economy, which will in turn provide jobs as the federal government scales back its civil servant workforce. But the program isn’t playing fair when it comes to making Ottawa a more attractive destination for investment. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to set up or expand their shop in this city.

And how much do you want to bet that we’re all thinking: “That’s nice, but we’re going to pay for it when winter comes.� That’s the fatalistic Canadian way of looking at it. If the weather spares us one day, it’s going to whack us the next. And just to add an extra dimension, an extra level of unease, remember how easy last winter was? We’re going to get it, for sure. When I was a youngish writer at the Citizen, we used to scoff at a succession of editors and publishers who insisted that the paper feature a weather story prominently almost every day. “How could the weather be news?� we wondered. Weather was just, well, weather. Turns out we were wrong. Even in those days readers were interested in weather and today there is much more weather to be interested in and it is more than a question of whether Friday will be a good day to play golf. Weather touches us in a way that we don’t always like. We used to think that severe weather was fun. Nothing like a good storm to watch through the window or maybe even run around outside in for a while. After the ice storm of 1998 and the big winds of 2011, not to mention a couple of rather small but rather scary earthquakes, we know that much of the fun has gone out of such events. Given this, it’s no surprise that people are

paying more attention to the weather than they used to. They are encouraged in this by the news media, particularly all-news television, which have made the weather a large percentage of the news conversation even when there is no storm happening. Even a storm that hasn’t happened yet is news. The storm might be coming, destruction is threatened. There is a weather watch, a weather warning, a red swirl on a map and it could, maybe, affect you. The news media have learned that the story about the impending storm can have great value, even if the storm itself never materializes. There’s lots of excitement in talking about the damage and devastation that might occur, great visuals in putting reporters in storm gear in front of the cameras in places where the storm hasn’t arrived yet and if the storm never arrives, well, it was exciting, wasn’t it? The problem with this kind of coverage is that people get used to it, come to believe that any storm warnings are exaggerated. The media cry wolf. Who knows, it may be that some of the people who were victims of Sandy were outside because they didn’t believe the storm could be as bad as the media said it would be. In the United States, the discussion about the storm quickly shifted to a discussion about the electoral politics of the storm, but not about climate change, which nobody wanted to talk about in an election year. Maybe now that the two storms, the real one and the political one, have died down, the discussion about climate change can begin again. It’s overdue. Many experts are saying that we are going to be seeing a lot more of this kind of weather. Many experts also say that our society can do something to reduce that likelihood by changing some aspects of our behaviour. How to bring that about will not be easy and will not be without sacrifice, but it is the kind of question that needs to be debated fully. Maybe that debate can start. In the meantime, we in the capital will go on being thankful for the weather we didn’t have and waiting confidently for things to get worse.

OPINION

Your Community Newspaper

Discovering ways to resist the impulse buy

N

ever go shopping with your kids. Well, never go shopping with my six-year-old. He can be extremely persuasive. He’s not the type to whine or beg. He’s so subtle that I usually don’t realize he’s been working on me until after I’ve already purchased the not-on-the-list item. Just the other day we were at Value Village looking for a couple of very specific formal wear items for the children to wear as a one-off to an upcoming family wedding. As I was perusing the baby outfits – not on the list, but evidently a good deal (failure one for the impulse buyer) – my son said, “Mom, when you’re done, I’d like to have a look over there,” and he pointed to boys’ outerwear. He waited patiently while I flipped through hanger after hanger of baby sleepers before we made our way over to boys’ wear. Following my precise method, he started flipping hangers, rapidly sifting through the “junk” until he came across what he wanted: “You see this vest, Mom. I think it would help to keep my chest warm this winter.” Interesting. I kind of knew at this point that he was after something. “We’re not get-

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse ting that today,” I said. “Oh, I know,” he said, and he continued flipping the hangers. “Here’s a good one,” he said, and he removed the vest from the rack. He put it on and began to play with the zipper. “I don’t think this is the one,” he said. “It’s got a zipper and I don’t have very good luck with zippers.” In hindsight, that was the turning point. In a very refined fashion, he’d given me a problem to solve and I totally took on the challenge. As a result, I assumed the task of hanger flipping, looking for a nice, warm vest, with buttons. We found one

for him – very good quality, waterproof, with goose down filling – and into the cart it went. It was only $6, but it was $6 I hadn’t intended to spend. My son is like that little voice inside my head. Even if you don’t have kids, I’m sure you’ve experienced it. It’s the voice that gets a little bored waiting in line at the checkout and whispers, “you need batteries.” It’s the voice that ever so quietly says, “buying a $6-magazine that tells you how to save money will help you to save money ... on your next trip.” “One of the biggest causes of overspending in the 35-55 age group is impulse

purchases,” says Judi Cane, a planner with Money Coaches Canada. “People have $800per-month grocery bills, but they don’t realize that half of that is spent on non-grocery items that they just don’t need.” Cane says retailers like Walmart, Costco and Loblaw have effectively tapped into our internal human weakness to buy things we don’t need. “At Costco, you have to walk past aisles and aisles of non-grocery items – everything from printer toner to eyeglasses and books – before you get to the food,” says Cane. “And even if Walmart has a separate door for the grocery department, they put things in the aisles that will tempt you. It’s hard

to get out of there with just groceries.” Of course, it’s not just the grocery store that gets us. Canadian Tire has enormous bins of small items at the checkout quietly calling out to you. “It’s pretty easy to go into the store for a $10 bag of road salt and come out with bags full of stuff like flashlights, chewing gum, even books,” says Cane. On the last Friday of each month, Cane and her Ottawa colleagues of Money Coaches Canada are offering free seminars on financial management. A “money town hall,” as Cane describes it, it’s an opportunity for people to raise any financial questions they may have in a relaxed

and open forum. October’s Money Monday was held at Caffe Latte Cino in Orleans on Oct. 29. Eight weeks before Christmas, overspending was a hot topic. Cane’s best advice? “Before you go shopping, make sure you know exactly what you’re going to buy and only pay cash,” says Cane. She admits this is much easier said than done and that most of her clients don’t even realize how much they’re overspending until she forces them to take a good look at their grocery bills. But committing to your list can make hundreds of dollars a month difference. November is financial literacy month in Canada. So why not take the first step toward good money management – make a list and stick to it. Oh, and never take my six-year-old shopping with you.

Moms, babies set to benefit from new health centre EMC news - If the Champlain Local Health Integration Network gets its way, Ottawa will see the creation of a new centre devoted to the care of seriously ill or premature infants as well as their mothers. A plan was approved during an Oct. 24 meeting calling for the Champlain Regional Maternal Newborn Program – a program that has existed under different names since the early 1980s - to proceed with the submission of an initial capital

plan to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Currently, seriously ill or premature infants are taken to one of three hospitals for treatment – the Civic or General campuses of The Ottawa Hospital, or the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. The aim of the Champlain LHIN and those working in the maternal newborn program is to consolidate the obstetrical and neonatal programs of those hospitals into one dedicated space. The LHIN board’s position is this will offer the best results for both mothers and

their babies and will allow for educational and training opportunities, as well as maternal newborn research. “The blueprint for this came together in 2009 with extensive input from many partners across the region,” said Marie-Josee Trepanier, interim regional director of the Champlain Maternal Newborn Regional Program. The program was integrated into the Champlain LHIN in 2010. A location for the centre, should it receive ministry funding, has been selected - an empty parcel of land located

New public space to be versatile The design of the dead-endturned-public-square would allow for the same uses it currently serves while adding a public function, explained city urban design planner Amy Falkner. “The chairs can be dragged and the laneway can still serve the existing delivery use,” she said. “We have to respect the fact it’s an area that needs to be serviced.” Falkner added the lattice walls would be arranged in a way that conceals dumpsters and delivery doors from the

central seating area. The hydro pole that currently exists could accommodate a suspended LED light from its arm. “It’s a great location – close to new developments and useful whether you’re meeting someone or just eating a sandwich,” she said. Falkner added that depending on the time of year, the space could adopt a variety of uses. One of the questions posed at the open house was regarding the cost of the project. Hobbs explained it will be funded entirely by cash-in-

lieu-of-parkland funds from developers building within the ward, of which there are many. Developers have to pay a sum to the city if their project design fails to accommodate a certain amount of green space or parking. That money is then allowed to be spent on community projects at the discretion of the ward’s councillor. No cost has been placed on the Winston Square plan as of yet, as the design could change somewhat following the latest round of community feedback. No zoning change is needed and a final design could see

around the city depending on what level of care they need. “If a baby is delivered in one of those three hospitals and develops complications … they have to be transferred to one of three sites, depending on the level of care required,” said Trepanier. “With this (plan), there is one location and groups would work together under one roof.” She said she can see cost savings arising from amalgamation of services, along with reduced hospital stays for newborns. Part of the plan is to have the building’s sound lev-

els and lighting mimic a baby’s circadian rhythm – a recent healthcare advancement based on new research. Though the process is still in the earliest of stages, members of the maternal newborn program are excited that plans are moving forward after years of work. “This has been years in the planning stage,” said Trepanier. “We’re pleased it has been approved at the Champlain LHIN. Ottawa is one of the only large cities in the country that doesn’t have this type of facility.”

approval next spring for completion in the summer. “Following this, the (Westboro Village) business improvement area will put up the money for the maintenance of the space,” said Hobbs, adding

that will cover both operational costs and any programming that might occur there. Hobbs said she has heard some concern from Winston Street residents regarding possible noise issues, but whether

that will occur “remains to be seen.” Lewis doesn’t see a likely problem in noise, as the area’s usage will determine how many people loiter and for how long.

off Alta Vista Drive near the existing General campus and CHEO. Trepanier said the creation of the centre is not to be seen as an indictment of existing facilities, but rather as a way of keeping mothers, fathers and babies together in a dedicated space complete with the latest technology aimed at creating a comfortable environment. As well, it would bring together the expertise of multiple existing obstetrical and neonatal teams and eliminate the need for the transport team from CHEO to ferry infants

No passports needed for unique cultural experience South Korean ambassador welcomes thousands into home for charity Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The South Korean ambassador is offering residents of Ottawa a rare opportunity to visit a portion of his homeland without needing a passport. To mark the 50th anniversary of South Korea-Canada diplomatic relations, the ambassadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home at 540 Acacia Ave. in Rockcliffe Park will participate in the popular Homes for the Holidays tour in support of the Hospice at May Court. The way Ambassador Cho Hee-yong sees it, ticket holders get to take an afternoon tour of a piece of Korea without having to go through airport security or bringing along a passport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are not a lot of opportunities to invite Canadian friends into our home, but this time, our friends can come onto Korean territory without their passport,â&#x20AC;? Hee-yong said. The ambassador and his wife, Lee Yang, arrived in Ottawa only three months ago and new to the diplomatic position, the couple were more than happy to participate in the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a shame to enjoy this wonderful house just all to

ourselves,â&#x20AC;? Yang said. Homes for the Holidays, a charity house tour event, helps support palliative and end-oflife care programs at the Hospice at May Court. Now in its 10th year, Jana Rand, manager of fund development for the hospice, noted the fundraiser aims to raise $150,000 for the hospice, only a small fraction of the $1.3 million the organization needs to raise to run its programming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is our largest fundraiser of the year,â&#x20AC;? Rand said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need the funding to help keep our doors open.â&#x20AC;? The participation from the South Korean Embassy will unofficially launch celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of South Korean-Canadian relations. In 2013, the embassy will host a number of events, which mark the importance of the relationship between the two countries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since the Korean War, we have developed a great partnership,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now is a good time to share our experiences and our home with others.â&#x20AC;? Hee-yong boasts that with more than 15,000 South Koreans visiting Canada each month and more than 1,000 teaching visas issued to Canadians just

South Korean Ambassador Cho Hee-yong and his wife, Lee Yang show off one of the many bits of Korean culture at their home in Rockcliffe Park. The ambassadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home is one of the stops on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Hospice for May Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home for the Holidays tour. last week, the relationship is only getting stronger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very encouraging, the exchange of young people between the two countries,â&#x20AC;? he said. The building is a remarkable stone home in Rockcliffe Park, originally purchased by the government of South Ko-

rea in 1979. The embassy, Hee-yong explained, is decorated for both Canadians and Koreans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is harmonizing the Korean culture and the Canadian culture,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are Canadian you can enjoy the Korean art and culture, if you are Korean, you have a chance

to learn a little about Canadian culture.â&#x20AC;? Seven homes across Manotick, the Glebe and Rockcliffe Park have been chosen for the tour this year, which allows residents to visit the special homes all dressed up for Christmas while supporting the Old Ottawa South

 



  

palliative care centre. The hospice aimed to have all the homes offer something different for the ticket holders. One of the Glebe homes on the tour, 196 Glebe Ave., features a garden designed by Oprah Winfreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resident gardener. One of the Manotick homes on the tour this year, located at 5572 Carrison Dr., is a French country-style home designed by U.S. architect Jack Arnold. The three-day event begins on Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. and unlike some of the homeowners, Hee-yong and Yang will be in the home during the tours to share some of their knowledge about Korea and the house. The homes are decorated with flowers from local florists, all of whom donate their time and their stock to the cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is amazing what they can do with the homes,â&#x20AC;? Rand said. The May Court Club of Ottawa, located in front of the hospice, will also take part in the tour, offering a pit-stop for ticket holders, to grab a coffee or tea, or a dessert. Rand said the May Court Club boutique will sell jams and jellies and crafts throughout the weekend. Tickets for the Nov. 9 to 11 event are $40 and can be purchased at the hospice, at 114 Cameron Ave., online at www. hospicemaycourt.com or at one of the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners, listed on the website.

prevented. That is the hope of the red ribbon campaign.â&#x20AC;? LeBreton acknowledged the progress made throughout the 25 years of the campaign, adding there is still â&#x20AC;&#x153;a great deal of work yet to be done.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the volunteers who help implement the red ribbon campaign, MADD Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest partner is the law enforcement community. Before moving to Ottawa, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson served in several British Columbia jurisdictions between 1985 and 2005. During his days as an officer, Paulson saw the tragic results of impaired driving all too often. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am proud and eager to lend the RCMPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support to the launch of the 25th annual red ribbon campaign,â&#x20AC;? said Paulson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although education and law enforcement efforts have helped to reduce the threat, this deadly behavior is still a problem in Canada.â&#x20AC;? Paulson mentioned the number of Canadians who die each year in impaired driving incidents are three times the number of those murdered, showing there are still too many people are engaging in this dangerous activity and too many looking the other way when they see someone doing it. This message was repeated by OPP Chief Superintendent Gary Couture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The (OPP), together with MADD and our partners, continue to work towards raising awareness, to educate communities through campaigns like this one,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to eradicate impaired driving. We will continue to fight this crime, not only now but all the time, 365 days a year.â&#x20AC;? The OPP, like the RCMP, will be flying red ribbons as they conduct enforcement on the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads and highways.

He cited statistics that between 1,250 and 1,500 Canadians are killed and more than 63,000 injured in impaired driving incidents each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These deaths and injuries are senseless and completely preventable.â&#x20AC;? Those who become involved in MADD Canada often do so in the wake of a personal tragedy involving impaired driving. Gendron is one such person, as was special guest Marjory LeBreton, leader of the government in the Senate. LeBreton, who lost her only daughter and first-born grandson to an impaired driver, has been a steadfast supporter of impaired driving legislation and enhanced victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights throughout her career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, this red ribbon is a symbol of both safety and the victim,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If everyone takes one of these red ribbons and truly thinks of the message behind it and then makes the commitment to never drive impaired, imagine the impact it would have. Imagine the crashes that could be prevented. Imagine the physical and emotional pain that could be

EMC entertainment - Potters and ceramic artists are preparing to unite for their annual craft and gallery show in the Glebe this weekend. The show, called 260 Fingers, will take place from Nov. 9 to 11 at the Glebe Community Centre and welcomes artists from across Ontario and Quebec in addition to the Ottawa area. Almonte potter Chandler Swain started the show with fellow potters nine years ago. “I wanted to pull together artists from the region for potters to have a place to show their work,” Swain said. This show, she said, is different than typical exhibitions found taking place at larger venues in the city. “A lot of crafts shows that happen in the convention centres are run by people who make a profit on them and they are really huge and they charge an admission fee,” Swain said. “Ours is non-profit and run by artists. It is collaborative and it is all for the love of the craft.” The show is funded by artists from areas as diverse as Manotick, Centretown and

West Carleton. Along with what the artists contribute, other costs of running the show are supported by members of the Glebe business community and the Canada Council Art Bank. The show also offers free admission. “We don’t want to (charge for admission),” Swain said. “We wanted to create a place that is welcoming.” A potter now for 30 years, she said the show grew from an original group of 26 artists to an invitational-only exhibition. Swain said it is the atmosphere which sets it apart from other, larger shows in the region. “This is a show where the artists get to mount their best work,” Swain said. “This one is unique in that the people are recognized as the best.” According to Swain the show offers a space for the artists to both exhibit their work and sell some pieces, with prices made for every pocketbook. “There are $25 mugs and then there are pieces which can costs thousands,” Swain said. “We also attract a lot of collectors.”

SUBMITTED

Pottery from artist Chandler Swain will be for sale at this year’s 260 Fingers ceramic and pottery show at the Glebe Community Centre from Nov. 9 to 11. In its ninth year, the show welcomes local artists as well as artists from Ontario and Quebec. Since its conception, the group has operated the exhibition in the same space in the Glebe on the same weekend in November. Swain said the group has been lucky to get a standing weekend at the popular downtown community centre, stating the natural light and unique space the centre offers is a perfect place to display all the artists work. The artists’ vernisage will

begin at 6 p.m. on Nov. 9. Regular sales and gallery viewing of the art pieces will take place throughout the weekend, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 10 and 11.

Exhibit showcases Centre 507 talent Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - An upcoming art exhibition at Centretown United Church offers an example of what’s possible when someone is given a little help. Centre 507 will hold its first art exhibit on Nov. 21 to 24 in the church’s sanctuary, 507 Bank St. The show, Artistic Expressions Studio Art Exhibition, will showcase Centre 507 artists’ work. The show is a direct result of a joint project from Centre 507 – drop-in centre for people living with poverty, addictions and mental illness – and Centretown United Church. Centre 507 and church board member, Linda Pollock describes the Studio as a place where the artists have a safe, equipped studio space. “There has been a lot of interest from the Centre 507 clients,” Pollock said. “It is great to watch them all get ready for this show.” The program received a one-time grant from the Watkins Fund for Innovative Ministries, through the United Church Foundation to organize the exhibit. All the Centre 507 artists have made submissions which will be on display. Frequent Centre 507 patron, Jul Liboiron said she has been working around the clock on her pen and ink pieces. “It is taking a lot out of me, I am constantly trying to get the work done,” Liboiron said. Some of Liboiron’s art pieces will also be available to purchase as gift cards. Liboiron has leaned on the

two professional Ottawa artists, Glebe painter, sculptor and teacher Lisa Thomas, and Ginger McCoy, painter, ceramic artist, who volunteer at the studio twice a month to offer workshops and mentor the artist-members. “I have fun with all of the artists, and they give back to me as much as I give to them,” Thomas said. The church is converting its sanctuary room into a gallery for the event, after the show, the space will be available for the program on a regular basis. Thomas said this new space is desperately needed. The current space the artists use for the program and to get ready for the exhibit is the church’s preschool room. Thomas and McCoy must set up and tear down each time the group uses the shared space. “It will be great to have a more permanent space, where everyone can just drop in and get started,” Thomas said. Pollock said the church’s goal is to make the room a community space, available for whatever the community needs. Regardless of the amount of space available, most of the artists say they come because the program is enjoyable. The exhibit will welcome different guests each evening throughout the event, including speaker Ed Broadbent on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m., pianist William Blais on Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. and the Shout Sisters Choir on Nov. 23. After each guest appearance, the audience is invited to view the artwork. The show is open from 7 to 9 p.m. from Nov. 21 to 24.

Defending the Memory of our Fallen It is a sad day when it becomes necessary to enact legislation against those who desecrate our country’s war memorials and cenotaphs. Acts of vandalism on monuments which honour those men and women who bravely fought to defend our country are inexcusable, yet are becoming more common. At Kumon, we give your kids the power of knowing. Whether your child needs extra help with math and reading or wants new academic challenges, our specialized learning program provides children of any age or ability with the confidence to achieve more all on their own.

The time has come to send a message to these criminals by increasing the penalties for such heinous actions. Recently, Conservative MP David Tilson introduced a private member’s bill to address this issue. My colleagues and I in the Conservative caucus are rallying around to support this initiative.

Kumon Math & Reading Centre of Carlingwood 613-852-4573 annemarieschik@ikumon.com

Bill C-217, Mischief Relating to War Memorials, seeks to impose minimum penalties including a fine of not less than $1,000 for a first offence, a prison term of not less than 14 days for a second offence, and a prison term of not less than 30 days for all subsequent offences. Academic Enrichment Pre-K — 12th Grade

While I support rehabilitative measures such as community service for first time offenders, I also believe that these should be in addition to a fine. This impresses on vandals the gravity of their actions, and the consequences for doing something so disrespectful. As for those who choose to commit this offense more than once, it is clear that a jail sentence is more than appropriate.

800.ABC.MATH www.kumon.ca R0011719270-1108

These penalties represent a reasonable response and send a strong message that this type of behavoiur is going to be treated seriously. To stand by with indifference regarding such repulsive actions is not an option. As a government, we will continue to stand up for our men and women in uniform. The memory of our fallen and the bravery of our soldiers are stronger than the acts of criminals and that is why this bill is so important.

As Conservatives, we will always support our soldiers and veterans and we will always stand against vandals who seek to tarnish the memories and contributions of our men and women in service.

Students get inside look at world of work Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thousands of Ottawa students received some career advice during two job forums hosted by the Ottawa public and Catholic school boards at the Ernst and Young Centre on Oct. 30 and 31. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli was peppered with questions about his job at city hall by some of the students attending the Catholic boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WRK 4U2 (work for you too)

forum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I (was) getting questions like what do you do on a daily basis; how many hours a week do you work; do you get a long with your colleaguesâ&#x20AC;Śthat sort of thing,â&#x20AC;? said Egli. More than 7,500 Grade 8 students attended the WRK 4U2 and the public boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WOW (world of work) forums. The sessions provided students with the chance to meet and talk with community leaders, business men and women

as well as their fellow secondary school students who have work co-op experience. Grade 8 is a pivotal year for students to become aware of what possible career opportunities await them in their community as well as academic pathways that lead to these opportunities, Egli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is a good event. It gives the kids an opportunity to see all sorts of different kinds of jobs and ask questions. It is the first time I have done it and I think it is fabulous,â&#x20AC;? said

Egli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a tough decision we ask children to make at 17 or 18 years of age, and I think this is a good way to get them some help with background to make that decision.â&#x20AC;? Grade 8 student Patrick McCarthy from St. Matthew High School was excited to learn what Egliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties and responsibilities were at city hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very interested in politics and I hope to work in government one day, so it is nice to get to know the differ-

ent aspects of being a councillor,â&#x20AC;? said McCarthy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I asked him what his duties are, different projects he handles in his ward and how he got elected.â&#x20AC;? McCarthy added that the two-day annual academic and career exploration forum allowed him to learn about a variety of career paths open to him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is good for people to know different trades that are available to them, because a lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know all these

trades are available,â&#x20AC;? he said. Students such as Kenneth Rending, a Grade 12 student at St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School, were on hand to explain what happens while working in a co-op placement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very important because it makes students know what it is to be in (the) work field instead of being stuck in a classroom,â&#x20AC;? said Rending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are in a work field, you are learning...hands on and you learn more.â&#x20AC;? Rending who hopes to pursue a career in architectural design, said he was getting a lot of questions ranging from how co-op placement works and what the hours are.

Sugar bowl more than just egg money

I

t was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasn’t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money and not the jug was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside, sort of. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission, although sometimes, if we had tired of looking around the Eaton’s catalogue in an evening of sitting around the kitchen table, Mother would let me take down the sugar bowl and count her egg money. Mother never heard of egg money when she moved to that back woods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York. But it was Aunt Bertha and Mrs. Beam, too, who told her about saving a penny here and a penny there. It was to be hers alone. Mrs. Beam snorted when she told mother about it being hers alone though. Sadly Mother soon found out what she meant. Now, about the egg money. It was Mother’s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every

River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière Remembrance Day - Lest We Forget On Sunday, November 11, 2012, we will give thanks and we will take the time to remember those men and women who made the supreme sacrifice while serving Canada in our Armed Forces. Thank you to those who have served our country and to those who continue to serve. We owe our freedom to you. We live in the greatest country in the world and we are forever grateful to you. City Service Changes for Remembrance Day Some service changes are scheduled for Remembrance Day and for Monday, November 12, 2012. The flags at all City of Ottawa buildings will be lowered to half-mast from sunrise to sunset on Remembrance Day to honour the memory of all Canadians who have served their country. •

Curbside green bin, recycling, garbage, and leaf and yard waste collection will take place on its regular day with no changes to the collection schedule.

Since Remembrance Day falls on a Sunday, Ottawa City Hall and all Client Service Centres, are closed on Monday, November 12, 2012.

OC Transpo is operating on a Sunday schedule on November 11, 2012 and a regular weekday schedule on Monday, November 12, 2012. War veterans who wear their medals or uniforms can ride OC Transpo and Para Transpo for free during National Veterans’ Week – November 5 to 11 2012.

Pools, arenas and fitness centres are open for public swimming, aquafitness, skating and fitness classes with regular schedules on Remembrance Day, Sunday, November 11, 2012 and Monday, November 12, 2012.

All branches, departments and services of the Ottawa Public Library are closed on Remembrance Day, Sunday, November 11, 2012. Regular hours will resume on Monday, November 12, 2012.

A complete list of changes, parades and ceremonies is available at ottawa.ca.

Changes to Curbside Residual Waste Several important changes in solid waste collection began the week of October 29, 2012. Residual household waste is collected every two weeks and the green bin is collected every week. Blue and black box collection will continue to alternate weeks.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares doorto-door. At the first, Mother thought that that meant just peddling eggs. But Aunt Bertha was quick to show her how she could add greatly to her egg money. “It’s not just from selling eggs, you know,” she told Mother. Everyone in Renfrew likes a fresh chicken now and again Aunt Bertha said. Soon Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Once she tried selling small braided rugs and hand sewn aprons, but she soon found out the women of Renfrew were just as busy as she was making rugs and aprons. Aunt Bertha said the money could be used for anything she wanted: new print from Walker Store or maybe a fresh pair of lisle stockings. But Mother had other plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay of course, which was always a fear deep in my heart, because she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a

visit, to spend a few days with her friend Rosie and maybe go to an opera again or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York and her wish was that one day there would be enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. Often, at night, she would take the bowl down from the back-to-the-wall cupboard and spread the money out on the oilcloth on the kitchen table. She would count and stack the coins in order and if there were any bills, she would flatten them out and put a salt shaker on them to hold them flat. Then she would write the amount and the date on a slip of paper and tuck it into the sugar bowl with the money and back it would go on the shelf in the cupboard. There would be a big sigh. Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. It wasn’t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat – the reason was much simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some

of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall pockets. So when something wore out, like it often did on the farm or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well-patched ones on the car or even maybe a new plow point, it was into the egg money Father would go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door and pause as if he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard and take down the blue bowl and take out a few coins or one or two of the bills, cram them into his pocket and quietly leave the house. Not a word would be spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoe’s General Store with a few coins from Mother’s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. It was at those times that I would know once again Mother’s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

As part of these changes, all households in River Ward received a new solid waste collection day. The City informed residents about these changes through a personalized letter that was sent by mail after Thanksgiving. You can confirm your collection schedule by checking your Waste Collection Calendar online at Ottawa.ca. You can also sign up to receive personalized reminders about your collection schedule via e-mail, phone or Twitter by visiting Ottawa.ca or by calling 3-1-1 (613-580-2400). You can also visit my website at MariaMcRae.ca, which has a detailed map identifying your new collection day.

One of the best ways to adapt to bi-weekly waste collection is to reduce the total amount of waste your household produces and maximize the use of the City’s recycling programs. More information about recycling is available at Ottawa.ca. You can place out an unlimited amount of recycling on each collection day.

Grannies support changes to medicine access emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Grandmothers gathered on Parliament Hill last Thursday hoping to change how Canada sends generic drugs to sick people in the developing world. The Grandmothers Advocacy Network (GRAN) organized the Nov. 8 rally, which included participants from 27 Ottawa region Grandmothers to Grandmothers fundraising groups as well as area religious groups, social advocates and politicians. The group was asking the Canadian government to pass Bill C-398, which would reform Canada’s Access to Medicines Regime passed in 2004 to allow the sale of generic drugs to developing countries. That bill proved too full of red tape, and only one shipment of life-saving drugs has ever left our shores since it passed. Bill C-398 would clear the way to an easier administrative process so that more medicine, such as drugs for managing HIV/AIDS, can leave Canada and help curb the acute public health problems in Africa and other developing regions. The reform bill has already passed the House of Com-

Organizer Bonnie Johnson said in the short term they want the House to approve

sending the bill to committee for review, which could take up to two years. If it doesn’t go to committee soon, the bill could die in 2015 when another election is called. “In the meantime, two

thirds of the kids in Sub-Saharan Africa won’t have access to drugs,” Johnson said. The original bill was passed in 2004 in response to the World Trade Organization’s ruling that generic versions

of brand-name drugs can be manufactured without the patent holder’s permission for export to countries where they can’t manufacture the drugs themselves. Johnson said there has been

a lot of misinformation about the Access to Medicines Regime, regarding its cost to tax payers. “It’s a no-tax bill,” she said. “The country buys the drugs and they get the funding from the Global Fund (charitable organization). They can’t afford the (brand-name) prices.” Johnson said it’s not clear where the Conservative government stands on the bill, despite it passing with a majority before the last election. The bill was tabled by NDP MP Hélène Laverdière. The Grandmothers Advocacy Network and the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign - two separate groups who often work together – have grown from Canadian advocate Stephen Lewis’ realization that grandmothers are carrying the burden of Africa’s AIDS epidemic. Millions of people died of AIDS, leaving grandmothers to bury their adult children and then raise as many as 15 grandchildren by themselves. Lewis brought some of these grandmothers to Canada to share their stories, and the Canadian grandmothers were moved to action. “Once the connection was made ... doing nothing is not an option,” Johnson said.

Area lawyer to make run at federal Liberal leadership Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; David Bertschi, the Liberal candidate for Ottawa-OrlĂŠans, was scheduled to announce his candidacy for federal party leadership on Nov. 7, with little surprise to those who have followed his political career. While the official leadership race doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin until Nov. 14, Bertschi had already established a grassroots exploratory committee to assess running and made visits throughout British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Quebec and more provinces during what he called a cross-country listening tour. The grassroots committee has been in full-swing since the spring, with tour stops, a website and a video promoting the Team Bertschi campaign. Bertschi didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win in the last federal election, losing to Conservative incumbent Royal Galipeau, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confident his resume, while atypical for a federal leadership candidate, marks him as a qualified candidate for the job. The lawyer is a founding partner at Bertschi Orth Smith LLP in OrlĂŠans, and served as a Crown prosecutor and prosecutor for the Ontario Human Rights Commission, among a variety of law and teaching

positions and work with legal aid. He said that the experience has been similar to politics, because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent years representing people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The switch to politics isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that significant,â&#x20AC;? he said. Bertschi would prefer to see less â&#x20AC;&#x153;professional-politiciansâ&#x20AC;? and more who have lived comparable lives to the average Canadian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They come to the bubble at a young age, and they never leave it,â&#x20AC;? he said about those who venture into politics from youth onwards. He grew up in a modest household with a single mother in Ste. Adèle, Que., a town outside of Montreal that had a 2,500 population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She really showed me what it means to be prudent,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that he had to learn to save in order to put himself through school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That shows that determination. I lived liked normal families.â&#x20AC;? He said it gave him a chance to eventually live in a variety of cultures â&#x20AC;&#x201C; rural and urban, and French and English, eventually moving to Ottawa. He came to Ottawa in 1977 to attend Carleton University, and later studied at the University of Windsor before settling in OrlĂŠans. It was easier then for a

young professional to settle into a community, pay off student debt and buy property â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the issues heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passionate about. Bertschi has clear issues with the transition to adult life the current generation is facing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as his six children from his blended family, who have to make the university to working world transition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different world now,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that students hear education is a guarantee to succeed in life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but struggle to pay off post-secondary debts. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the reasons that he believes heavily in job creation, especially investments in small and medium businesses. As a partner in a local law firm, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s created jobs in a smaller market. He gained experience running as the Ottawa-OrlĂŠans candidate in the last federal election, and has decided to keep the momentum rolling. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be facing off against some big players in the leadership race. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running against Justin Trudeau, the Montreal MP who has been one of the most talked about in the leadership race. But Bertschi said that he brings a mature attitude to the table, with a wide-range of work experience behind him.

Raceway marks 50th anniversary in face of uncertainty Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The Rideau Carleton Raceway opened its doors in 1962, and while the track has remained a steady 5/8ths of a mile, the rest of the facility has been growing ever since. Alongside live harness racing three days a week, the track on Albion Road south of Ottawa has spent the past 50 years turning itself into a successful entertainment centre. In 2000, the entire building was overhauled when the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation partnered with the raceway to bring more than 1,200 slot machines to the centre. In 2011, the slots facility also added a number of virtual gaming tables offering black jack, baccarat and roulette. The raceway has also added many â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;simulcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; racing stations for patrons who want to bet at tracks across the continent. A large bingo hall on the third floor has also been added, benefiting 28 local charities. The dining room has been reconfigured since the raceway was first built, and accommodates 650 people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an advantage for the many community groups who use the space to fundraise for their various charities and causes. Countless â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Night at the Racesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fundraisers have been held for charities, and 25 country-themed nights

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

The Rideau Carleton Raceway marked its 50th anniversary last week with a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun zone. With Halloween just around the corner, kids were encouraged to dress in costume. Here, raceway employee Rebecca Ferriss joins Doug and Debby Pearson, who brought their granddaughter Skylyn Thomas out for some pre-Halloween fun. were held in the past year, with Italy and Switzerland proving some of the most popular. The site has also hosted 16 Gloucester Fairs and the nowdefunct Capital Hoedown. Many a successful horse has crossed the finish line here, including Majestic Sun, who holds the Canadian record for fastest mile, Bestofbest Hanover and Intimidate. Canadian hall of fame

Adults!

driver HervĂŠ Filion â&#x20AC;&#x153;cut his teethâ&#x20AC;? here, as did many other successful drivers, said track announcer and spokesperson Norm Borg. The life-long racing fan said the game is changing, but the racetrack is adapting and continues to be a pillar in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a family tradition for a lot of families, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been passed on for generations,â&#x20AC;? Borg said.

On Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, the dining room and grand stand are packed with people out for a good time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Borg said they can get rowdy in their excitement to see their horse win. Many people who come to the races donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about harness racing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care to â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and are there simply to enjoy the atmosphere and perhaps put $20 on a horse

they can cheer for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can not beat this economical, value-added family entertainment,â&#x20AC;? Borg said. UNCERTAIN FUTURE

On the weekend of Oct. 27, the raceway held two days of 50th anniversary celebrations for kids and fans, and even had drivers from the 1960s come to tell their stories.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bittersweet time to be celebrating a 50th anniversary, Borg said, ever since the Ontario government ended its Slots at Raceways program in an effort to save about $345 million it said could be better used for health care and education programs. Now, the OLG is looking to build a new casino in Ottawa and would prefer it to be located downtown instead of at the raceway. But Borg said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeling a bit better since Premier Dalton McGuinty stepped down on Oct. 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a little sweeter, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a change of governance if not a change of government, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every indication that the alternative attitudes are different,â&#x20AC;? Borg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling a little better today than I was in March (when the Slots at Racetracks program was cancelled).â&#x20AC;? Borg is confident the racetrack has another 50 years left in her. He said the horse racing game is changing with improved technology like simulcasting from other racetracks across North America, but it also has an opportunity to attract new fans through the through spillover from its bingo hall, current slot machine patrons and families who come for the Sunday buffet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be fewer racetracks, but we will survive and benefit from the shrinkage,â&#x20AC;? he said.

EMC sports - The Bell Capital Cup is looking forward to its new partnership with the Capital City Condors. Scott Lawryk, general manager of the annual hockey tournament, said the Bell Capital Cup has been a supporter of the Condors over the years and is looking forward to hosting the hockey club in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To give them another avenue and a place to play; for them to be a part of the Ottawa International Hockey Festival, it just seemed to make sense for us,â&#x20AC;? said Lawryk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their program, it pushes exactly what our tournament is all about: kids coming out and playing the game of hockey and meeting other kids, whether kids from Toronto or kids from the U.S. â&#x20AC;Ś or kids from Finland and Germany and Hong Kong.â&#x20AC;? So far, around 400 teams have signed up for the Bell Capital Cup, which will run from Dec. 28 to Jan. 1. Lawryk added the tournament will continue accepting applications until mid-November. About eight of those are special hockey teams, which cater to children, youth and young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These kids are getting out there and they have the right

The Bell Capital Cup will host six to eight special hockey teams, including the Capital City Condors, during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament, which runs from Dec. 28 to Jan. 1. attitude,â&#x20AC;? said Lawryk, who lives in Bridlewood. He said there are a number of others looking to the Condors as a model for special hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teams are going to themâ&#x20AC;Ś they want to be under their banner,â&#x20AC;? said Lawryk. The long-term goal is to have special hockey teams from around the world compete in the Bell Capital Cup.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to expand this in future years and have this as something they can look forward to,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to get the word out there to teams who qualify and would like to experience the Bell Capital Cup.â&#x20AC;? Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament saw 410 teams participate from 19 divisions with more than 7,000 players. Teams from

Canada, the United States, Finland, Germany and South Korea competed in the Bell Capital Cup. Shana Perkins, co-founder of the Condors with her husband Jim, said the parents and the players are getting excited for the tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be treated as another team at the Bell Capital Cup,â&#x20AC;? said Shana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being included and integrated.â&#x20AC;?

Provincial funding to expedite Transitway construction Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

of 2013. Without the provincial dollars, the project likely would have been delayed until 2015. The original plan was to have a grade-separated Transitway link from the tunnel and travel south to Norice Street. That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen without money from the federal government. Chiarelli said the provincial government had slated $12.9 billion for infrastructure in the last budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; compared with $6 billion pledged by the federal government.

The new link will ease bus traffic onto bus-only lanes that run from Baseline Station south to Hunt Club Road. Chiarelli mentioned the possibility of a public-private partnership between the two levels of government and the college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;P3 Canada has funding for public-private partnership projects,â&#x20AC;? he said of the federal program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There could be a partnership evolving out of this.â&#x20AC;? While Algonquin president Kent MacDonald said the col-

legeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t currently putting up cash to fund the extension, he did say a safe, simple commute is important to student. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students have said to us that accessibility and transportation are some of their top concerns,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re meant to do if the students canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get here.â&#x20AC;? College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the residents of Centrepointe have helped to shape a vision for the area that included the Centrepointe Theatre expansion and the new archives building on Tall-

wood. The Transitway is an important piece of that plan, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the parking lots will be changed to structures,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that will make room in surrounding areas to have buildings with a mix of uses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty thousand people from the surrounding community are served by this transit station,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be the transit hub of the west end, handing 250,000 people per day.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - A cash infusion from the province has fast-tracked an extension of the transitway near Baseline Station. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP and Infrastructure Minister Bob Chiarelli announced on Nov. 1 that the province will allocate $16.6 million to the project that would see the Transitway extend from the tunnel south of Baseline Road to Tallwood Drive, a distance

of about 500 metres. The announcement was made at Algonquin Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction trades building, which stands beside the transitway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of congestion at Baseline Station,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will help improve the commute for Algonquin students and the western corridor served by the station. Watson said the city set aside the same amount of money in the 2010-11 capital budget and hopes to get shovels in the ground near the end

First open house for Rockcliffe air base redevelopment Canada Lands Company hopes process will encourage participation, ideas michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - More than a year after finally acquiring the property, the Canada Lands Company is finally ready to start the consultation process with the surrounding community on the design plans for the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe. The company will hold its first open house at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum on Nov. 26 from 3 to 9 p.m., featuring two presentations, one at 4 p.m. and one at 7 p.m. The rest of the evening is planned to offer people the opportunity for members of the public can gather information and offer comments and ideas about the future of the property. Don Schultz, a Calgary native, is the real estate director in charge of the project that will see the 136 -hectare site transformed into a unique urban landscape. “It is all about gathering as many ideas as we can get,” he said. Schultz said Canada Lands will only present an analysis of the site at the open house, leaving space for residents to

comment on all aspects of the project. “There is no design,” he said. “This event is all about where and how the design should go.” The goal for the group over the next 18 to 24 months is to develop a community design plan and submit it to the city by spring of 2014. The process of purchasing the land originally started in 2005, when the Department of National Defence planned to close the base and sell the land to Canada Lands, with a portion of the site also being sold to the National Capital Commission in 2005. Canada Lands officially purchased the land in May 2011 following the settlement of a three-year land claim dispute with the Algonquins of Ontario. Residents from communities surrounding the air base participated in a number of consultations at that time, but the land claim halted the original plans. One of the concerns raised during the first consultation process was traffic, specifically where it would be directed in the area. Schultz said the group continues to see Belfast Street as

Access to the parkway depends on whether the route is used as part of the proposed interprovincial bridge project. Schultz said the company

will tackle this particular factor by working on two designs, one if the bridge proceeds at the Kettle Island corridor and one if it does not. “We fully expect that traffic will be a strong concern and we will address those concerns,” he said. The main thing, Schultz pointed out, is that a lot of time has passed since those

first round of consultations, including changes to where the city’s light rail system will run. Initially planned for Montreal Road, the LRT will actually be further south, which Schultz said has affected the projected number of units the company is planning for. In early planning, the team wanted to create an urban hub

of more than 15,000 units near the projected transit station. But that is no longer an option, Schultz said and the actual number of units is now more dependent on the real estate market and results and comments from the public consultation process. The Rockcliffe project team will be announced at the open house, which includes management from MMM Group and Meloche and Associates, market research from N. Barry Lyon Consultants, urban design and landscape through Brook McIlroy and Janet Rosenberg and Associates and public consultant specialists Momentum. The entire development of the land is projected to take more than 15 years to complete, with 8 to 12 hectares under development at any given time. The Canada Lands Company has a history in acquiring land from the defence department and has in the past used street names and landmarks to commemorate the land they are developing. The company has also officially launched a Rockcliffe air base website, www. clcrockcliffe.ca, which Schultz said is dedicated to receiving comments from the public and keeping residents informed. There is no registration needed to attend the open house and residents from across the city are invited to

Drop in poppy donations expected due to NHL lockout Significant amount of money raised by legion through sales at Senators games Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The Kanata Legion and charities it supports will take a hit from the National Hockey League lockout this year. With players off the ice, the legion expects to be down about $8,000 from a drop in poppy donations this year. Normally, legion members can distribute poppies during at least three Ottawa Senators games at the Kanata arena, but without hockey this year, poppy sales will be way down, says campaign chairwoman Moira Green. The mood at the legion was somber when members realized there was no chance hockey would start up this fall, Green said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just devastated,â&#x20AC;? she said. Poppy distribution at Sens games nets about 10 per cent of the total donations the Kanata Legion receives for its poppy campaign each year. In 2011, the Kanata Legion raised a total of $85,930 through poppy distribution.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fans are always very, very generous â&#x20AC;Ś Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a good moodâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially when the home team is winning, Green said. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t uncommon for elated fans to drop $20 bills into the collection box, Green said. Although there will be two OHL hockey games played at Scotiabank Place during the poppy campaign, Green said the legion doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect donations at Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games to make up for the contributions Sens fans usually give. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to a 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, we would really appreciate it,â&#x20AC;? Green said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out shopping, consider giving more.â&#x20AC;? Poppies will be available during Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games at Scotiabank Place on Friday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. vs. the Saginaw Spirit; and on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. vs. the Belleville Bulls. Much of the money raised goes to help veterans. Last year, $10,425 was used by Kanata Legion branch staff to assist veterans. An additional $6,000 provided temporary

housing for homeless veterans and $5,600 paid for â&#x20AC;&#x153;comfortsâ&#x20AC;? for veterans in longterm care facilities. A dinner for 88 veterans who live in long-term care facilities was paid for using $1,770 of the money raised in 2011. Veterans from former British Caribbean countries also receive support through the Royal Canadian Legion, so $1,000 from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poppy campaign went to help them. Some of the money also goes back to the community. Poppy campaign funds paid for a $2,655 debrillator for the intensive-care unit at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital. More than $12,000 in bursaries and scholarships was handed out to students studying at local post-secondary institutions. Local cadet organizations received $2,360 and Ottawa drop-in centres, Meals on Wheels and a footcare clinic for seniors received $13,800 in support. This year marks the 23rd year the Kanata Legion has run the poppy campaign. Almost all of the branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 290 members volunteer to help raise money during the Remembrance Day poppy season.

PET OF THE WEEK SPIRIT

HOPE

ID#A144528

ID#A147562

Spirit is a neutered male, black Border Collie and Retriever ďŹ&#x201A;at coat dog who is about 9 years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on October 10, but is now available for adoption. Spirit is looking for a quiet family, as he is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;kick back and relaxâ&#x20AC;? kind of fellow. Spirit has a polite and somewhat independent disposition and welcomes any gentle, friendly approach with a wag of his tail. He is a special needs dog, since he suffers from degenerative joint disease (arthritis). Many dogs of his age will develop joint disease just like his, and it can be very successfully managed. He will need an experienced owner to show him the ropes, and to make sure he knows he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule the world! Pete would not be well-suited to apartment living, as he likes to share his opinions on many subjects, which the neighbors may not wish to hear.

Hope is a spayed female, black and white Domestic Shorthair cay. She is a 4 month old kitten who was brought to the shelter as a stray on August 19. Hope is full of energy and loves to play with her toys, and litter mates. She is looking for a forever home that can provide her with many spots from which she can observe the world. This loving little lady would love a home in which she could receive as many kisses as possible.

surfaces may appear solid, ice is often uneven and thin in places, and your pet may fall in and possibly suffer hypothermia or even death. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to limit the amount of outdoor time for any animal in frigid temperatures, so take your dog for lots of quick short walks instead of one long one. Consider a sweater or coat for your pet on cold days when you go out, especially if your dog is very young or old, or is sick or short-coated. Be sure to wipe down its paws each time you return home to remove chemicals or salt often used to melt ice and snow. These can be poisonous if ingested and can irritate sensitive feet. The OHS recommends that cat owners should always keep their cats indoors year round. If your cat does go outdoors, make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only for short periods, and ensure your cat is inside overnight. Remember never to leave an animal in an unheated car for long periods of time, and be sure to knock on the car hood each time you start the engine to scare any cats away. Cats often crawl under car hoods to ďŹ nd warmth and can be injured or killed by a starting motor. If you see an animal in distress or without adequate shelter from the cold, call the OHS Emergency Unit at (613) 725-1532.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

My name is Finley and I am 6 years old. This is my new puppy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cedarâ&#x20AC;? she is a nippy princess. Cedar likes to chew everything and she really likes to chew the couch pillows. When sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out for a walk she likes to eat grass, leaves and dirt. Cedar is a good girl though, she never barks. We love her lots.

The Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) wishes to remind pet owners that plunging winter temperatures can be dangerous and even life-threatening for pets. While the OHS strongly recommends that you bring your dog inside in extreme temperatures, owners of outside dogs need to be especially vigilant about providing appropriate care on days like this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The OHS will have zero tolerance for animals left outside without adequate shelter from the elements, or an ample supply of fresh water during these cold months,â&#x20AC;? says OHS Inspector Miriam Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we ďŹ nd a dog left outside without adequate shelter or water, in intolerable conditions with no owner around, the dog will be removed for its own safety and animal cruelty charges may be laid.â&#x20AC;? Dogs that live outside require as a minimum a doghouse soundly built of weatherproof materials facing away from prevailing winds. It should be elevated and insulated, with a door ďŹ&#x201A;ap and bedding of straw or wood shavings. Animals that are outside need a constant source of fresh water, so check your dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bowl often to ensure it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t frozen. Keep your animals away from ice-covered bodies of waterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; even small ponds you think may be frozen over. Although many
