Towers proposed for Dow Honda site would be city’s tallest Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Dows’s Lake was once a massive swamp, with the tallest points being the tops of towering trees. Now, the area is the breeding ground for a different type of lofty landmark. Last week, an Official Plan amendment application submitted by Richcraft Homes appeared on the city’s website in support of a proposal for the site currently occupied by Dow Honda, one that would set a new precedent for tall buildings in Ottawa. The application calls for two 48-storey residential buildings and one 18-storey building on the site, which is adjacent to the Carling O-Train station. Recently the area around the intersection of Carling

Avenue and Preston Street saw city approval given to a development of 45 storeys proposed by Claridge Homes. Earlier, Mastercraft-Starwood received approval for a 30-storey building just to the north of the Dow Honda site. Dow Honda was sold last summer after occupying the site for more than four decades. In media reports, the owner stated limited accessibility as being the reason for wanting to find a new location for the dealership. The 76-page planning rationale for Richcraft’s proposal, prepared by FoTenn Consultants, shows the taller towers oriented north-south along the O-Train corridor, with the shorter tower closest to Adeline Street. See COMMUNITY, page 6

Connections for cyclists Little Italy resident Valeria Votto took the official inaugural ride at the ribbon-cutting for the new O-Train pathway. The 1.5-kilometre section of multi-use path runs parallel to Preston Street, linking the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway and Bayview Transitway station to Young Street. Eventually, the path is intended to continue south along the O-Train tracks, past Carling to the pathway system along the Rideau Canal and Dow’s Lake. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes said cyclists and residents of her ward have been fighting to get the pathway built since the 1960s.

EMC news - City council’s last-minute changes to the community design plan for Centretown don’t detract from the bigger vision for the neighbourhood, says the plan’s architect.

George Dark, an urban planner the city hired to define how development should occur in Ottawa’s downtown core in the coming decades, said he is fine with changes including a 27-storey limit on “landmark” buildings in the middle of Centretown. City planners suggested

the height limit and a couple other minor changes after the Centretown Citizens Community Association and a group of developers came to an unprecedented compromise to present an alternate version of the community plan that would have allowed more mid-size buildings but

limited opportunities for very tall towers. On May 8, city council voted to approve the changes and adopt the massive plan, which has been in the works for more than three years. Ted Fobert, the FoTenn planner who drafted the compromise proposal, called that idea the “small moments” policy because it was aimed at creating a plethora of

smaller parks and plazas on properties throughout Centretown in exchange for allowing taller buildings of up to 15 storeys. The idea intrigued city planners, who asked council to have them study the idea in further detail, including how it could be applied beyond Centretown. See DARK, page 7

Carlington community welcomes Merivale Road development EMC news – The long-unchanged Merivale Road strip in Carlington could soon see a new addition to the streetscape. Last week residents met with representatives from Superior Construction to discuss a development planned for a small, triangular site at 999 Merivale Rd. Located just south of Dover Crescent, the land -- vacant for years -- saw soil contamination remediated in 2006. Stephan Maisonneuve, owner of Superior Construction and the land in question, told residents he wants to build a four-storey, wood-framed residential building consisting of 14 units. With the help of his staff, Maisoneuve walked residents though the proposed development and showed different versions of how such a building could look. The site was purchased essentially for the price of remediation, he said, adding that a four-storey building of wood construction makes rezoning unnecessary and would result in affordable units. “We didn’t want to go through a rezoning process,” said Maisoneuve. “We looked at all kinds of possibilities for the site -- mixed-use, residential, and commercial -- but the only viable structure is a wooden one, fully residential.” The site is zoned as “traditional mainstreet,” meaning buildings of up to six storeys are permitted, but given the size of the lot and the need for concrete construction for buildings of more than four storeys, going for the maximum allowable height wasn’t financially possible. The developer will be applying for a minor variance in height to prevent the first floor from being sunken. The development will have ground-floor parking for 10 vehicles, a privacy fence on the east side of the property and ground-floor units with gardens and access fronting on Merivale Road. A rooftop terrace would be open to the building’s occupants. Superior Construction team member Don Brown said he’d like to see this development be the start of something in Carlington. “The neighbourhood hasn’t had much development (in recent years),” said Brown. “We’re going to be first out of the block. Our intention is to set a worthy example for others to follow.” The residential units will be con-

dos, not rental apartments, residents were told. As well, the units will consist of large 1-bedroom and 2bedroom sizes. Several versions of what the building could look like were shown to residents, but the developer hasn’t yet chosen a style to go forward with. When the floor was turned over to questions from residents, the team found they had covered many of the possible questions already. General approval was expressed over the development, with the consensus being anything is better than what is at the site now. A site plan was expected to be filed with the city the day after meeting, with ground expected to be broken by the end of August or late September.

Britannia neighbours come together thanks to local website britanniapeeps.com started to identify creativity, diversity in neighbourhood Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Take a close look at the inhabitants of any given neighbourhood and you will find a diverse collection of talent: creative thinkers, entrepreneurs, business people and community organizers. Many of these talents could benefit others in the neighbourhood, but in today’s hectic world, many people don’t have much contact with (or knowledge of) their neighbours. A Britannia mom and web designer recently decided to give the talent in her community a voice by creating a website where neighbours can interact and share useful information. Maggie Cordina, with the help of neighbour Janna Hamilton, is a Britannia native who created and launched britanniapeeps.com last fall. From promoting neighbourhood resources and local businesses to organizing community get-togethers,

the site’s news page and forum bring Britannia’s happenings into sharp focus. Cordina said when her child turned three, she decided to reduce her workload and take it easier. In doing so, she discovered what her neighbourhood has to offer. “I discovered so many great people the same age as me in my neighbourhood,” said Cordina. “I recognized a need for the community to be able to communicate with each other.” The forum style of the volunteerrun website allows community members to post freely once they’ve joined the site. As of earlier this month, 221 people have joined the site. Cordina said she monitors the site to prevent spamming and has tuned security settings to allow for easy postings. One simply has to enter their street name or postal code before posting. While it started out as something of an experiment, Cordina was surprised

by the reaction the website garnered. “It’s a great way to advertise and stay local,” she said. “Everyone has been so enthusiastic about it.” The interest in the website led Cordina to begin planning its expansion, the creation of similar local websites for other neighbourhoods. To this end, she has created the web domain for www.OttawaPeeps.com. While that site, with its local community subsites, is a work in progress, britanniapeeps.com is preparing for an active summer. The community’s first major event organized by the site – a communitywide yard sale – is being held on June 1. Spanning the width of the Britannia neighbourhood, the event encourages resident to hit the streets in order to find low-priced treasure and meet their neighbours. To learn more about the event or to sign up, visit the “blog” portion of britanniapeeps.com.

Community wants space that’s open to the public Continued from page 1

The 18-storey tower would share a two-storey podium with the closest 48-storey tower. The development would contain a total of 1,123 residential units and approximately 80,124 square metres of space for retail, amenity and residential uses. Six levels of underground parking, containing 766 spaces (91 of which are visitor and retail), are listed in the application. Main vehicle access to the parking garage would be from Sydney Street, with limited, secondary access from both Adeline and Carling. Approximately 566 bicycle spaces are included as part of the proposal. Between the two tall towers, leading to the entrance to the O-Train station, would be a 1,585 squaremetre public plaza. Live/work units with ground-floor entrances would front onto the multi-use pathway that runs along the O-Train corridor. The rationale references the site’s proximity to rapid transit and the city and province’s goal of intensification as reasons the development should proceed. “The proposal capitalizes on an infill opportunity of an underutilized site within the city’s builtup area where services are readily available,� the rationale reads, stating, “The proposed development

proposes to intensify a site situated in proximity to employment, rapid transit and other amenities contributing to the creation of complete communities and development patterns that are more sustainable over the long-term.� When contacted, a staff member in the office of Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes said she was not aware of a community meeting arranged for the proposal at this point. Michael Powell, president of the Dalhousie Community Association, said that he and members of the association will be going over the details of the proposal soon, though there are no meetings currently planned. Powell said there is a general acceptance that height will be concentrated in that area, but he wants to ensure “the development interacts well with the street and the community.� Any community space created as part of the project should come with the assurance of that amenity area being reliably maintained, he added. The comment period for the proposal is ongoing, and while the file does not have a listed end point, comment periods normally lasts 28 days. The file does, however, list a planning committee date of Aug. 13, 2013, though that is a tentative date that could be pushed back into the early fall.

EMC news - What does culture mean in Vanier? That is the question cultural development and initiative staff from the city is asking. The project is about cultural mapping which will help define, among other areas in the city, Vanier’s cultural “hotspots�. Leading the charge is Kwende Kefentse and Ben Dick, both staff members of the city’s cultural development initiatives. Kefentse announced the project to residents at a Vanier Community Association meeting in April. Whether a church basement is used on Saturdays for yoga or a community centre room doubles as an artist’s studio, these two want to know about it. “Essentially it’s really to bring community together, to look at how a community uses spaces and culture,� Kefentse said. The duo explained a similar project already took place in Bayshore, which helped define cultural spaces. “We are looking for things that have a strong connection to the community,� Kefentse said. Kefentse and Dick will be compiling the data about such spaces and activities specific to Vanier over the course of the summer. The goal, they explained is to better understand the city’s cultural assets. After gathering the information, it can then be used to increase the cultural vitality or highlight particular aspects of a community. Eventually, Kefentse said all data collected will be available online on the city’s open data platform. The project will look at a number of different aspects of culture, including the environment, history, events and pieces of art. “We are hoping to find out things about Vanier that the rest of the city

Mathieu Fleury said he believes the data acquired will be of high value for Vanier and for the city. “The initiative is quite interesting and I have to say it will add value to making sure that people can benefit from cultural activities,� Fleury said. The city’s initiative is only one project currently looking at cultural activities in the area.

the community either depicting periods in Vanier’s past or new artistic directions and Vanier is home to the city’s only outdoor grotto or shrine. Kefentse and Dick said they want to make the data collected useful. If the information they collect helps to create more efficient work within city hall, it would be a big bonus. “Hopefully, what we collect will lead to better work with city staff and better city planning,� Dick said. Fleury agreed, stating he hopes the data will allow for funding opportunities and policy analysis within the community easier. Also, he added, there could be the benefit for something that is already occurring in Vanier to be replicated in other parts of the city. Research specific to Vanier has already begun and a soft launch of the data software will be on the city’s website in mid-summer. There is not a firm timeline at this time of when the data may go live, as the research will take some time to complete. Funding for this project, Kefentse said, was made possible when city council approved the renewal action plan for arts, culture and heritage. The six year plan allocates $5 million in the arts, heritage and cultural sectors. Kefentse and Dick welcome comments, and information from residents. For more information about the project, or to share some information, please contact Kefentse at kwende. kefentse@ottawa.ca or by phone at 613-580-2424, extension 12937.

The development site is located on a corner and is within 600 metres of a rapid transit station. Those factors,

R0032097717

EMC news - The Somerset Street strip in Ottawa’s Chinatown will be seeing a lively new addition if city council follows the planning committee’s lead in approving a new mixeduse development. A nine-storey apartment building with ground floor grocery store and restaurant received committee approval on May 14, paving the way for a much-needed food store in the Chinatown-Dalhousie neighbourhood. The building would be built on a surface parking lot at the southeast corner of Somerset and Rochester streets. City staff had already signed off on the zoning bylaw amendment and site plan control, which describe the development as having 75 residential apartment units and an underground parking garage containing 52 commercial spaces and 22 residential spaces, with 13 residential visitor spaces. The garage would be accessed via the rear of the site, with vehicles entering from Rochester Street. While Somerset is labelled “traditional mainstreet� in the city’s Offi-

welcomed, in the underserved area. As stated in the staff report, “the Dalhousie Community Association submitted comments and supported redevelopment of an underutilized site, but expressed concerns, including the proposed building height.� The zoning by-law and site plan applications go before city council on May 22.

Planner, residents differ on elements Other changes to the community design plan include keeping west Centretown height limits at 14.5 metres instead of lowering it to 11 m like the east side, keeping Somerset Street west as mixed-use instead of purely residential and the percentage breakdown of how much residential vs. commercial space should be allowed in mixed-use areas. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes made a last-ditch effort to change a section of Somerset Street west of Elgin Street back to residential instead of allowing some commercial uses, but that wasn’t supported by city staff, council or the planning committee chairman, Coun. Peter Hume. Back when the core was first developing, protecting purely residential areas made sense, he said, but now it does not. “At that time, cities were not sophisticated enough to contain that growth ‌ so you got an erosion of the residential areas,â€? Hume said. “The idea of crossing that demilitarized zone from the residential to commercial harkens back to a time when Centretown did need to be protected.â€? Dark said the changes get at nittygritty details that don’t change much about the overall intent of guiding Centretown’s development as it leads Ottawa’s charge toward become a large city of more than a million

people. “To me, there is a bigger picture,� he said. “It’s got some really defining moments in it.� The plan was a good one, Dark said, because there was no “fundamental assault� on the principles of the plan at the end, after years of consultation with hundreds of residents and industry representatives. Rezonings will always happen and they are meant to as cities evolve, Dark said. But the new plan gives Ottawa a “background picture� of what Centretown is and how to guide its future. “All cities are being pretty actively rezoned,� Dark said. Those rezonings will lead to the city’s ability to collect benefits to feed back into the community, such

as publically accessible spaces or money to put towards anything from streetscape improvements to affordable housing, he said. “The interesting thing is you’re kind of reliant on them (developers) to bring these things forward,� he said. The “small moments� idea is an interesting when, especially because Centretown residents are acutely concerned about ensuring their neighbourhood retains and gains pockets of green space and public gathering places, Dark said. The challenge will come in defining whether it will be enough to make those spaces publically accessible on private land, or whether they should be turned over to the city’s ownership as a true public park.

Let’s revel in Sens fever

T

he signs of spring are many in Ottawa. Tulips are in bloom, joggers and cyclists are more common sights along the canal and restaurant patios are once again becoming an afternoon destination. There’s definitely something else in the air this spring, however. There are a few more little red flags perched on the tops of cars, there are a more red T-shirts and jerseys marked by a distinctive Spartan logo adorning passers-by, and the streets and shops are a little more barren at around 7 p.m. every other evening. Yes, hockey fever has hit Ottawa a bit harder this spring. The Ottawa Senators eased past the Montreal Canadiens in five games last week, including a pair of raucous encounters at Scotiabank Place. For those without tickets, fans filled bars, restaurants and living rooms across the city to watch games on TV. The Sens Mile, the nickname given to Elgin Street come playoff time, is once again an exuberant, festive gathering place for both hardcore fans and fair-weather faithful alike. Securing passage to the second round of the National Hockey League playoffs will only draw larger crowds.

The city once dubbed the worst sports city in Canada is once again showing how off the mark such a comment was. It is times like these, when a city institution becomes something more than just a local curiosity, that the true value of sports teams becomes apparent. It turns everyone wearing Senators garb into a friendly face. It gives everyone at school or the office a chance to talk about something that is exciting and current, allowing people to cast aside their everyday worries and fears for a few fleeting weeks. But it doesn’t happen every year – the last time the Senators won a playoff round was 2007, when they reached the Stanley Cup final – and it only occurs in the springtime. Ottawans have only one hometown rooting interest when it comes to professional team sports so far, but that’s about to change. By the end of 2014, there will be a couple more players on the block in the form of Canadian Football League and North American Soccer League franchises. It will take a while for Ottawa fans to warm to their new clubs, but all it will likely take is a good postseason run to capture the sporting imagination. Let’s enjoy these days: they are part of what adds a splash of colour to the fabric of our city.

You can’t hear the birds sing by the parkway

s much as people would like to have the whole thing over with, it’s likely that the public controversy over the west-end LRT route will go on and on. Already, city council’s vote on the subject has been delayed by more than a month. Ostensibly that’s to allow for more community consultation. You can bet that more delays are to come. Rome wasn’t paved in a day. So we can talk about it some more. Today, let’s talk about the romanticizing of the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway – or the Western Parkway, as it used to be known in less politicized times. To hear the National Capital Commission discuss it, in dismissing any talk of trains on the route, the parkway is one step removed from a wildlife refuge: a sea of green beside the river, the quiet broken only by the sounds of birds singing, the only signs of movement the leisurely pace of walkers and the silent glide of bicyclists. Clearly, in the NCC’s view, to put trains there would be to destroy a beauteous ecosystem. Well, the NCC hasn’t been out there when people are heading in to work in the morning and heading home in the afternoon. Then,

instead of a sea of green, it becomes a sea of cars, ripping along at 80 kilometres per hour, often more, except when they are jammed up into long, motionless, exhaust-spewing lines waiting to turn onto the Champlain Bridge. Oh, yes, and buses, lots of buses, also disturb the wildlife refuge. It thins out quite a bit during off-peak hours and on the weekends, but the parkway is still the preferred route downtown for a lot of west-enders. In many ways, whatever its noble origins, whatever the lofty ideals of those who manage it, the parkway has become just a road, just another thing named after Sir John A. It is not sacred ground. Perhaps it once was. I should note that I live about a seven-min-

ute walk from the proposed Byron Tramway tunnel. I don’t think it’s going to affect my life in any way and I actually don’t mind the idea all that much. But there are many who live closer who do, particularly those whose properties back onto the narrow strip by the parkway where the city proposes to put tracks. Others who live along Byron face a serious inconvenience, at least during the construction period if not after. Of course, people are always inconvenienced when a major project goes ahead. Some of us are called on to make sacrifices for the greater good. If, however, the decision was made to use the parkway for light rail, hooking up with the Transitway at its western end, only the NCC would be inconvenienced. That western end of the parkway is at quite a remove from residential properties and those who inhabit those properties are used to having hundreds of buses go by. The NCC would survive, you can be sure of that, perhaps turning its attentions to other projects that might improve the life of residents of the capital area. Speaking of which, is anything else ever going to happen on LeBreton Flats? Those who oppose light rail on the parkway and don’t like the Richmond-Byron alter-

native either, have strongly supported Carling Avenue as a light rail route. It can certainly be argued that the street is such a mess anyway that nothing could make it worse. So why not put light rail there? However, a convincing case has been set out, most recently in a lengthy Citizen article, that a light rail route using Carling would be logistically difficult in spots and prohibitively expensive, unless construction involved no bridges or tunnels. With the number of stoplights involved, the speed attained would be no greater than a streetcar. Hmmm, streetcars. Don’t some other cities have those? Don’t we wish we still did?

n the wake of Rehtaeh Parsons’ death, people came out to condemn her alleged attackers and the justice system that failed her. That’s normal. What few people want to recognize, however, is what Christie Blatchford controversially pointed out in a recent Postmedia column – that the case against the alleged rapists was too flimsy to stand up in court. At root of this case, however, is not the alleged rape itself, but what happened in the aftermath. That social media exists is central to the Parsons story. That teenagers use it to post compromising photos of themselves and others without thinking of the consequences is the biggest problem because it makes cyber-bullying difficult to legislate and even harder to prove. The unfortunate reality is that many alleged victims of cyber-bullying are wilfully engaging in the circulation of images and comments that ultimately lead to their own downfall. The lines between cyber-bullying and wilful

Canlok Stone

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse engagement are thus horribly blurred in the eyes of the law. It’s incredibly trivial by comparison, but I can’t imagine if iPhones had existed when I fell off a cooler and passed wind at a party in Grade 9. I was mortified as it was. The memory haunted me throughout my high school years, as it frequently came up in jokes or conversation within my social circle. (Yeah, I was the girl who fell off a cooler and farted – in front of the boy I had a crush on, no less). Fortunately, social media didn’t exist because had a photo or video ended up going viral, my life surely would have changed forever. Although extroverted, I was actually incredibly insecure as a teen. A permanent record of that

event probably would have sunk me. Under the law, then and now, it would be difficult for someone to suggest that a video of me farting was “bullying,” even more so if I had posted it myself as some kind of defence mechanism. (He who laughs first, laughs last, etc.). It’s frightening that, at the most insecure and vulnerable times in their lives, many teenagers feel it necessary to put every minute detail about themselves – real or imagined – out there to be publicly lauded or condemned. Social media isn’t going away anytime soon. There’s no point in an all-out ban. Anyone who’s ever suggested a teenager do anything healthy – like turn off Facebook – knows, more

likely than not, they’ll do completely the opposite As a society, however, we have a responsibility to dig deep and try to make the correlations – if there are some – between social media, “bullying,” teenage depression and suicide. But rather than focus on those who may or may not be vindictively circulating the photos, we need to shift our focus to the majority of kids, the ones who are most likely the victims and we need to teach them to use these tools wisely. Rather than giving our toddlers touchscreens indiscriminately to keep them entertained, we need to take the time as parents to demonstrate and explain the capabilities and the power of these technologies. Perhaps the most difficult part of this will be convincing this generation of digital natives that there are consequences to their actions lasting far beyond the click of a button. For Parsons’ family, the consequences were too great to bear. Let’s make sure she has not died in vain.

Healthy kids report offers three-pronged approach to dealing with obesity Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A report on the health of Ontario’s youth finds that 75 per cent of overweight children become obese adults, said Alex Munter, CEO and president of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Munter co-chaired the Healthy Kids Panel, which released the report “No Time to Wait: the Healthy Kids Strategy.” He presented the findings during a community meeting of the Ottawa Board of Health at the Jim Durrell Centre on May 6. “We spoke to a lot of parents, a lot of families and a lot

Alex Munter, CHEO CEO and president of youth,” he said, adding the panel heard from more than 2,000 parents.

“This is not an issue where we’re going to be exercising out way … out of it.” The panel developed a threepronged approach to address the issue of obesity in children: * Start all children on the path to health: enhance pre-natal care and promote infant health, including breastfeeding * Change the food environment: increase the availability of healthy foods and expand nutrition programs in schools * Create healthy communities: encourage healthy eating and active living “Parents by and large know what they need to do and are believably committed to the

New rules in force for Ottawa pool owners

The Centre, to be built at Belle Island on Christie Lake near Perth, Ontario, will provide a unique opportunity for youth to learn about alternative energy while building their leadership skills. The camp’s ‘Leaders in Training’ Program, for kids 13 to 17 years old, offers a fun-filled living experience on Belle Island. For 36 days over seven weeks this summer and eight weekends during the school year, the kids will work together as a sustainable community.

EMC news - The City of Ottawa’s new backyard pool safety rules are now in effect. The new rules are contained in a bylaw passed by council earlier this

year. Under the bylaw, all pool owners must now ensure pool enclosure gates are self-closing, self-latching and locked at all times, except when

“Through our support of Christie Lake Kids we are helping to teach kids valuable life skills that all youth need in order to grow into healthy, successful adults,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. Christie Lake Kids is a registered charity that has been working in Ottawa for 90 years providing recreation and skills-building programs for young people whose families may not have the means for them to attend camp.

Campers will experience a number of alternate power sources and sustainable technologies firsthand at the new facility. Green technologies include solar cells, a human-powered pump, and a gravity pressurized water system that draws water from the lake to a water tower.

health of their child,” said Munter. “This can’t be done without public health.” In 2009, the direct and indirect cost to health care in Ontario due to obesity was $4.5 billion, he said. The report states that if nothing is done, “the current generation of children will develop chronic illnesses much younger and be more affected as they age. The cost of obesity will grow, impacting our ability to fund other programs and services.” So far, 20 out of the 23 recommendations made by the panel already have programming underway, said Munter.

the pool area is in use. Existing pool enclosures installed with a permit remain compliant, but must be locked when the pool area is not in use. All new and replacement pool enclosures must comply with the new bylaw. The bylaw has also updated fencing requirements for pools (including wading pools), hot tubs and fish ponds. Requirements vary, so pool owners and prospective pool owners are encouraged to review the changes at ottawa.ca. Throughout the spring and summer, the city and its partners will be informing the public about water safety and reminding residents to always keep children within arms’ reach around and in the water. The ciy will be inspecting pool enclosures in some neighbourhoods this summer to advise residents about the requirements of the new bylaw. For more information on water safety, visit ottawa.ca.

Farm Credit Canada launches ambitious campaign Drive Away Hunger marks 10th anniversary, targets ‘wasted food’ Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Starting this summer, food banks across Canada are asking people to raise more than two million kilograms of food to help feed hungry families. The Drive Away Hunger campaign, organized by Farm Credit Canada, officially launched at the Ottawa Food Bank warehouse on May 7. This year’s goal is one million kilograms more than what the group raised last year and half of the total the

campaign has raised since its inception 10 years ago, but chief operating officer Rémi Lemoine said the campaign has been growing and he believes meeting or surpassing this goal is attainable. “I have been told that 7.2 million pounds (3.25 million kilograms) of produce is wasted each year,” Lemoine said. “And that could really go to organizations like the food bank.” To launch the campaign, Farm Credit Canada donated $100,000 to Food Banks Canada. Katharine Schmidt, exec-

utive director of Food Banks Canada, said the money will be divided, with half the funds to be allocated to the national organization’s mandate and half to rural areas. Aside from the cheque, Lemoine said the company will also be donating the tractors, employees’ time and whatever else is raised over the course of the next six months to the food banks. Schmidt said the Ottawa Food Bank helps more than 48,000 individuals per month, 37 per cent of whom are children.

Families, schools, businesses and corporations are encouraged to start collecting and donating food and money to the campaign from May 7 to Oct. 18. Starting October 14, Farm Credit Canada will run its program tours, which will have a tractor and trailer visit communities in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan to collect the donated food and money. Peter Tilley, executive director of the Ottawa Food Bank, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and Jim Snyder, nation director of agricultural practice development of BDO,

joined Schmidt and Lemoine for the launch. “This unique food drive focuses on driving away hunger in rural Canada,” Ritz said. To donate or to find out more information about the fundraiser, visit fccdriveawayhunger.ca. Most needed items for donation

• pasta products, rice • meat and fish • dry and canned soups, stews • fruit, vegetables • breakfast cereal • peanut butter • canned or powered milk • fruit juices • pasta sauce • beans, legumes • infant formula, baby food

Students give voice to health issues through photography Winners of contest announced at Ottawa Board of Health meeting Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - An All Saints Catholic High School student was honoured for her photography in Ottawa Public Health’s Photovoice contest. Xixi Jin took second runner-up and a $100 prize in the active transportation category for her photograph of her sister rollerblading. “I think active transportation is really important,” said Xixi, 15. She got the inspiration for her photo when she saw her sister, Kake, 8, taking advantage of sunny weather. “My sister; she’s very active,” said Xixi. Too many people continue to drive when they can find alternate ways to get around, said Xixi, adding active transportation helps to reduce pollution created by driving. “(People) really need to exercise,” said the Grade 9 student. “There’s a lot of ways.” The grand prize $500 win-

ner of the Photovoice contest was Eliza Ou, a student from Lisgar Collegiate Institute, who took a photograph of a person on a unicycle. “I do believe active transportation should be used more throughout Ottawa,” said Eliza during her acceptance speech. First runner-up in the active transportation category, with a $200 prize, went to Lia Mason, a student at D.A. Moodie Intermediate School, with a photo of herself running. “(It’s) a good way to get exercise,” said Lia. The second runner-up in the general health issues category was awarded to Elizabeth van den Hoef for her photo on dental hygiene. “Brushing your teeth can really give you a beautiful smile,” said the St. Joseph High School student.

Catholic board asks parents for opinions Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The Ottawa Catholic School Board is trying to find out

how safe and inclusive their schools are. A survey, handed out to students, staff and circulated to board parents will ask parents to talk about how

safe they think the schools are. The questions will be asked on a sliding scale and the responses are kept anonymous. Peter Atkinson, superintendent of continuing and com-

munity education and safe schools, said the board has been doing the surveys for the last four years. “We are required to do it under Bill 13 (Accepting Schools Act) but had been doing it under previous legislation,” he said. “The interesting thing is now we

EMC news - A new mental health program is building bridges between the services offered by various health institutions. The Bridges Project, a collaboration between the Youth Services Bureau, the Royal and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, offers services to families and youth in crisis outside of a hospital setting. Five months after the program was announced and one month after coming into service, Bridges already has 12 clients. “As a caring community we want to see young people get the care they need when they need it,” said Joanne Lowe, executive director of the Youth Services Bureau on May 6, during a community meeting of the Ottawa Board of Health. Before the Bridges Project, it was up to those in crisis to find and access the services needed after being discharged from hospital. “Up until a few weeks ago, we would discharge those pa-

tients with a bit of a safety plan … and point them in the right direction,” said Alex Munter, CEO and president of CHEO. The first 14 days after discharge is when the risk of suicide is the greatest, he added. Bridges helps minimize that risk by making it easier for atrisk youth to access the help they need once they leave the hospital. “We go to meet those youth where they are … when they are at the highest risk,” said Munter. “By working together on this we will literally change the future.” The program is offered to youth between the ages of 12 and 18. In the past three years, CHEO has seen a 67 per cent rise in youth crisis visits, said Munter. Providing services outside the hospital frees up beds, and youth in crisis can maintain some normalcy by staying at home and accessing services where they live. “These interventions are provided in the community … and help relieve pressures on hospitals,” said Dr. Alison Freeland,

Spreading good health awareness to community Poster contest sees awards given to Wabano youth Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - When it came to reaching out to the Aboriginal community on cancer screening and detection, Wabano turned to its youth to help spread the news. Partnering up with Cancer Care Ontario, the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health launched a poster contest in the winter, inviting any of its after school children and youth to participate in expressing what cancer awareness means to them. Director of social medicine at the centre, Mary Albota, said children always have the best way of putting things and submissions proved her right. “Kids are very wise and they can be frank,� Albota said. “Sometimes they have a way of saying things that would get adults attention.� Members from Wabano and Cancer Care Ontario judged the submissions and named Symone Pettier and Alexandra Lalonde as the winners. “These two stood out from the rest,� Albota said. Albota said she had worked with the youth during the after school programming, ex-

plaining the importance of cancer awareness and naming the three key cancers, breast cancer, colon and rectal cancer and cancer of the cervix. Of the other submissions, slogans like “Don’t be dumb, like your bum� were submitted to by the children. Albota said some of the slogans may sound silly, but effective. “Who wouldn’t read that if you say it,� she said. Pettier said she spent a couple of days on her poster and had talked to her family members about what she should draw. It was her grandmother who then told Pettier her aunt had and has survived breast cancer - all because of early detection. Pettier made that the focus of her poster. Albota said Pettier’s poster, which included a real photograph of her aunt grabs people’s attention. “It puts a face to the cancer,� she said. “..and Pettier has spent the time to tell that story, with both images and words.� Materials with a focus on Aboriginal health are already being handed out with the posters being the second phase of the campaign. Both images from the post-

ers will be printed and spread throughout the city and province. Lalonde’s slogan, “You can live a good story� will be on the posters, where as Pettier’s focus on her survivor aunt will be a feature story on the poster. Albota credits Cancer Care Ontario for approaching the centre with this Aboriginalfocused program. “They saw the problem and reached out to us to help make a difference,� she said. “They saw that Aboriginal people are under-screened and under-serviced.� According to Albota, the three cancers the campaign is focusing on are because they are the three biggest killers for Aboriginal people. Mostly, she said, because of the lack of screening or being tested. The other reason is because of how remote some Aboriginal communities are, and how little medical equipment is available. Albota said all this needs to change, and she is happy Cancer Care Ontario has both identified and is doing something about the need. “We have big dreams, but then again, here, we have big dream catchers, I think we can make it happen.�

Tenant pushes for better rental standards Nepean woman in dispute over conditions of her unit Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Donna Cyr said she wants the city to be able to enforce higher standards for landlords. The Nepean resident has been battling with her landlord since 2011 to get repairs done on her Majestic Drive townhome. During a press conference with the Association for Community of Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) on April 30, Cyr showed bags of mold she said she collected from the ceiling of her unit. The conflict started almost right away, Cyr said. She moved into the unit after an eviction in October 2011 and agreed to clean the unit in exchange for November’s rent. “After we finished taking out the more than 30 bags of garbage we started to notice the problems,” she said. The problems included a leaky roof, which says is responsible for the mold she found in the ceiling above her

back door. A call to the property owner, Aera Investments, by the Nepean-Barrhaven News wasn’t answered. In August 2012, Cyr called the city’s property standards department. She said the department found 13 deficiencies, which were to be repaired by order of the Landlord and Tenant Board of Ontario’s tribunal. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who is chairman of the city’s community and protective services committee, said the city is bringing two cases to provincial offences court against the landlord in May for failure to complete flooring and bathroom repairs. Taylor said there are a lot of good landlords in the city, but that the new policy around derelict buildings should help to deal with the ones who don’t keep their properties in good order. “Realistically we are talking about something like three per cent of the city’s landlords. But hopefully in

September we will have a more robust plan for dealing with these issues,” Taylor said. In the meantime, the city has assigned two bylaw officers to complete inspections of the remaining units in mid-May, something that will be happening across the city over the next few months. Cyr said she will continue to try and get her landlord to complete the repairs. “I could just move, but then nothing will get done,” she said. “There needs to be better protection for people who pay rent. I like to say I spend $1,224 a month for my landlord to kill me slowly.” Donna Mrvaljevic, a spokeswoman for the Landlord and Tenant Board, said it’s up to the individual municipalities to define their own minimum standards for repair. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing’s investigation and enforcement unit investigates complaints of

Knoxdale-Merivale Coun.

Keith Egli. in whose ward the Cheryl Gardens units are located, said the city has very capable bylaw officers, ready to deal with tenants concerns. “There is also court and

tribunal remedies available to assist in situation such as this,” he said. our office will continue to work with the resident as a go between to bylaw and any other city services that might help.”

Kettle Island least expensive option for new crossing Costs for a new interprovincial bridge is estimated at over $1 billion to construct Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The release of the latest interprovincial bridge report finds Kettle Island to be the most cost-effective option - despite carrying a price tag of more than $1 billion. The cost estimate report summary, released at the beginning of the month, determines which of the three options -- Kettle Island, Lower Duck Island and McLaurin Bay -- is the least expensive to build. The summary allows for a 25 per cent allowance (contingency) to compensate for the level of accuracy and minor items and tasks not captured in the summary, as well as 20 per cent for engineering and construction administration costs. The report found that Kettle Island is the most economically viable option, coming in at $200 million less than the cost of the next option. Hired by the National Capital Commission to establish which of the three locations would be the best option for a

new interprovincial crossing, Roche-Genivar Joint Venture has been undertaking an environmental assessment for the past two years, holding public consultations, open houses, online comment forms and round table discussions to capture residents concerns and feelings towards a new crossing. Residents from three identified corridors have rallied together in the past, calling the process, the bridge options and even the need for a crossing at all into question. When looking at the cost summary, Christophe Credico of Manor Park questions what he calls a stunning magnitude of costs associated with building any bridge in any of the corridors proposed. “Given that cost estimates in the NCC’s report are plus, minus 20 per cent, it’s safe to conclude that any of the three crossings is going to cost about the same amount of taxpayer money to build and maintain - approximately $1.5 billion,” Credico said. “That’s nearly double what the entire Confederation LRT line will cost.”

Convent Glen/Orléans Wood Community Association president Ian Gadbois said a significant majority of the residents the association represents are against the proposal for a bridge in Corridor 6 or 7, with key arguments against these corridors being the Greenbelt and wetlands areas and the current traffic increases in the area. Gadbois also agrees the money could be better spent. “The significant increase in traffic on highway 174 that will compound current transportation and transit issues, and the high cost of the project when funds could be better spent on other projects that would be more beneficial to the Orléans and Ottawa communities,” Gadbois said. “A good example would be the extension of the LRT train to Trim Road.” These costs, Genivar states in the report, should be considered preliminary with more accurate estimates needed for ongoing budgeting and project financing purposes and in a memorandum attached the

New Rules for Backyard Pools in Effect Pool Enclosure By-law (No. 2013-39) requires that all pool owners have gates that are self-closing, self-latching and locked at all times, except when the pool area is in use.

report, Genivar states the cost review estimates are consistent with industry standards and the resultant costs establish a basis for analysis and for comparing the relative cost of the various corridors. Rockcliffe resident Lori Assheton-Smith said the cost summary does not include mitigation measures in the analysis, one of the main issues residents have identified at the public consultations and round table discussions, but such measures are listed in the contingency allowance. “Mitigation costs are not defined in the report, because they have yet to be determined. They are simply lumped into the 25 per cent contingency allowance. But this means that the allowance for mitigation costs is lowest in Corridor 5, which is likely to have the highest mitigation costs as it is the most densely populated corridor.” Assheton-Smith goes on to state that she feels it seems everything suggests that the NCC will be recommending Corridor 5 as the technically preferred corridor. Both Assheton-Smith and Credico are opposed to any bridge - not just one near their communities. “With costs this high, benefits uncertain and the associated degradation of health, safety, community ... for any of the three corridor options, we should be looking more closely at better solutions,” Credico said. Both call for a fourth option -- a downtown tunnel -- to be reconsidered. According to the NCR crossings website, a tunnel is not being considered because it would not reduce the number of trucks in the downtown core - one of the main reasons for a new crossing. It also states that in its first phase of the environmental study, the tunnel was discarded. “While the tunnel’s ability to avoid a new crossing is appealing, the transportation supply provided by this link is insufficient to address the future demand across the Ottawa River,” NCR crossing states on its website. A full list of the cost estimate items is available online at ncrcrossings.ca/upfiles/CostEstimateSummary.

Emerson has big ideas for Grampa’s visit

W

e were soon to find out why Emerson was so anxious for a visit from Grampa, who lived in Ottawa and came out to Northcote often. He drove a car with a rumble seat in it and he never failed to pile us five kids in the back and tear down Northcote Side Road like someone possessed. Only three people could sit on the seat at one time, so two of us had to crouch on the floor. That was usually Earl and me. But Grampa always stopped at Briscoe’s General Store to buy us penny candy and that’s when he made us change places so that we each got a turn on the seat. I thought it was a car like no other. The running boards had real rubber on them and there was a little patch of rubber over the back fender where you stepped to gain entry to the rumble seat. Along the roof inside the car, there were two hooks on which Grampa carried a long black umbrella. It was the biggest umbrella I had

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories ever seen. He said he used it if rained while he was lawn bowling in Westboro. When Grampa visited, after we had our ride down Northcote Side Road, he spent the rest of his time with Mother -- his only daughter -- who he thought didn’t belong on a farm in the backwoods of Renfrew County. It was on one of those visits that Emerson was more anxious than usual to get our ride over with and see Grampa settled in the kitchen with Mother. He made sure the teacups were on the kitchen table, the kettle was boiling on the Findlay Oval and he knew Grampa would be in the kitchen for a spell. I saw him go over to the car and open the door on the driver’s side and gently take

the big black umbrella down off the hooks. I had no idea what he had in mind because it certainly wasn’t raining and it was as hot as blazes with not a cloud in the sky. It didn’t take Emerson long to drag me into the mystery by telling me I was going to have the experience of a lifetime, one I would never forget. Little did I know how truthful those words would turn out to be. If I had had an ounce of brains I would have headed for the hay loft. But Emerson made this venture sound so exciting, I was soon waiting to see what he had in mind. We went behind the house where the summer kitchen was attached to the wood shed. Father kept a stepladder there to patch the roof when the leaks got so bad

Mother threatened to head back to New York if he didn’t fix them. The shed roof was flat as a plate, and Emerson said it was from that very roof I was going to have the experience of a lifetime. Had I been a bit smarter, I would have known what he was up to with the big black umbrella in his hand, ordering me up the ladder. He was right behind me, making it impossible for me to change my mind. He opened the umbrella, which I thought was as big as a tent and ushered me to the very back of the shed roof. He took a piece of paper out of his overall pocket. He unfolded it and scanned it as if it held some important information. All I could see was a bunch of lines and what looked like clouds. Emerson squinted, spit on his thumb and held it in the air. I had no idea what he was doing. “Perfect,” he said. “Now you hold this umbrella as high as you can over your head and run – and I mean run – and when you hit the end of the roof, you’ll go sailing off just like

an aeroplane. The umbrella will carry you. I’d love to do it first, but I think I’m a bit too heavy. According to my drawings, you are the perfect weight to go soaring through the air. And don’t worry about landing – you’ll land in the grass beside the pump.”

green grass around the pump with the umbrella covering me like a tarpaulin. I was sure I had broken every bone in my body. Father was just coming out of the barn to witness my flight and he was over to the shed in a shake. Emerson was nowhere to be seen. My

Before I could voice my objections, Emerson gave me a shove and I was off and running. I hit the edge of the roof in two seconds and me and umbrella were airborne.

I looked at my brother, looked at the roof and looked up into the open umbrella. Before I could voice my objections, Emerson gave me a shove and I was off and running. I hit the edge of the roof in two seconds and me and umbrella were airborne. Well, it didn’t take long for the umbrella to collapse like a piece of newspaper and I landed on the hard ground, miles away from the

knees were covered with dirt, I skinned my hand on landing and Father determined there were no broken bones. He picked up the broken umbrella and walked around the shed to the kitchen. I was right behind him. Without any explanation, he handed Grampa the umbrella and all he said was “sometimes I think that lad doesn’t have the brains God gave a goose.”

In fact, their prep and detail teams have earned Myers Hyundai the title of #1 Pre-owned Retailer in Canada.

with Clean Eating and Active Living Eat Clean…

Burn Fat

Eating clean is simply the practice of avoiding processed and refined foods and basing your diet on whole foods. Whole foods include foods that are found in their natural state, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, grass-fed and free-range meats, wild fish, unsalted nuts, and seeds. The health benefits include the prevention of lifestyle diseases, losing weight and just feeling better! Relaxing, laughing and living is also a part of being well, so feel good by applying this 80% of the time and kicking back and enjoy the other 20% of the time.

§ Eat Your Breakfast – Those who eat breakfast have a waistline about 2 inches smaller! Make sure to eat within 90 minutes of waking up to make this work! § Snack Regularly – If you wait too long between meals, your metabolism will slow down, causing your body to burn less fat than normal. Eat every 3 hours! § Drink Green Tea – Drink at least 3 cups of green tea a day! § Drink Enough Water – Women should drink about 9 cups a day and men about 12 cups. § Pump Some Iron – Strength training speeds up your metabolism, burns calories and sculpts sexy muscles. You should make strength training about 60% of your exercise routine! § Clock Your Sets – To burn fat faster while you strength train, limit the time between sets. Shorter rests keeps your metabolism going and your heart rate up!

Faster!

Be Lean

Include clean foods like avocado with anti-aging rich antioxidants. Avocados contain monounsaturated (good) fats which can help reverse insulin resistance and help regulate blood sugar levels. They also help us increase the absorption of other fat soluble nutrients such as eye friendly beta carotene, by up to 5 times!

EMC news - Grade 11 student Jenny Berndt said she never dreamed the design she entered into an annual Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario competition would be selected. “It’s really weird to have my picture everywhere,” said the Merivale High School student. The design, which features a bandaged young boy hugging the iconic CHEO bear, was the fifth to be selected from a Merivale student in the eight years the hospital has been hosting the competition. The design was unveiled at the school on April 18. Everything from clothing to posters and even CHEO’s Bear Wear clothing line will feature Berndt’s graphic. Berndt said her inspiration came from her own experience. “I just thought about what I would want to see if I was in a hospital feeling sick,” she said. “What would make me feel better.” On top of the graphic contribution to the hospital’s annual fundraising campaign, the Nepean high school also donated $1,000 thanks to a loonie drive.

EMC news - Volunteers in Old Ottawa East will get centre stage at this year’s Main Event as organizers prepare to recognize the many helping hands in the community for the first time at the festival. The Main Event will take place from June 14 to 15 and is organized by the Community Activities Group in Old Ottawa East. Executive director Carol Workun said volunteers are an integral part to the festivities and this year the group will take a moment to recognize that hard work. “We wanted to recognize our volunteers,” Workun said. “We couldn’t do what we do without them and this is our chance to say thank you.” The volunteer appreciation event will include a cake cutting ceremony, Workun added. The Main Event is the community’s way to celebrate the beginning of summer and is held every June alongside a community-wide garage sale. The fun starts on June 14 with an outdoor movie at Springhurst Park. A barbecue, wagon rides, a bouncy castle, music, arts and crafts are all planned for the big day on June 15.

The Main Event is the biggest event the Community Activities Group in Old Ottawa East organize for the neighbourhood. The event welcomes the entire community to come out to enjoy multiple activities including a community-wide garage sale. The Workun said last year more than 50 people volunteered to help with various activities throughout the event and this year, the group would like to have the same success. “We can’t run it without the volunteers,” Workun said. “All we are asking is for every volunteer to offer up an hour of the day.” Volunteers are needed to help with the garage sale; set up and clean up, the barbecue, recycling and garbage detail, balloons and children’s games. For a full understanding of the volunteer positions are on-

line at ottawaeastCAG.ca/volunteer/mainevent. Running alongside the event is the community-wide garage sale, which includes homes from Rideau Gardens Drive to Greenfield Avenue and from Echo Drive to the Rideau River. Workun said all residents are welcome to participate either on their own premises or by setting up at the Calvary Baptist Church. The group also encourages businesses to set up sidewalk sales. To reserve a table at the church, the group advises resi-

dents to call Bob McRoberts at 613-733-5912 any time and leave a message with your name, phone number, and the size of the table required. An arts and crafts sale and the Main Farmers Market will also take place at Main Event community party from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the front lawn of Saint Paul University. Sellers can participate by registering online at ottawaeastcag. ca or in person at the Old Town Hall. Registration is $25 per table. For the sale, vendors must provide a table and items must be a vendor’s own work.

Speeches can’t hold the attention of Diego Caceres, 23 months, prior to a Habitat for Humanity groundbreaking on Nantes Street on May 9. Diego and his parents, sister and two brothers hope to move into one of the three new homes to be built at the corner of Nantes and Portobello Road in about four months.

Newcomers welcomed to Orléans at Habitat site Construction starts soon after groundbreaking ceremony Nevil Hunt

nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC news - Twigs, leaves and plywood provided the floor for a Habitat for Humanity groundbreaking ceremony on Nantes Street, but soon enough, lawns and carpeting will be underfoot. A wobbly table full of juice boxes was set up for the May 9 ceremony, and it too will be replaced, by three kitchen tables. Only the juice boxes are likely to stay the same – there are lots of kids moving in. Three families are expected to take possession of their new homes in as little as four months, with eight children among the new residents. “Thank you to all who, in

one way or another, made this possible,” said Margarita Caceres, who will live in a new bungalow with her husband Salvador and their four children. Prior to the groundbreaking, speakers reiterated that the three families are receiving “a hand up, not a handout.” Each of the new homeowners is employed but earns a low income. They will pay off an interest-free mortgage and will also donate hundreds of hours of time to building the homes or to Habitat in other forms of volunteer work. Habitat then uses the repaid mortgages to carry out more home building. Donna Hicks, the CEO of Habitat for Humanity’s National Capital Region branch, said the Nantes Street houses

will mean the Ottawa area will soon have 43 Habitat homes. She noted that one of the Nantes homes will be the first built with an aboriginal family in mind – Ida Kakekagumicks and her three grandchildren – all of whom attended the groundbreaking and took part in a traditional smudging ceremony to prepare the site. The land where the three homes will be built was donated by the Regional Group of Companies, a real estate and investment firm, and their partners. Volunteer builders and some professionals will turn the site into a hive of activity for about four months. Work was expected to begin last week. The three homes consist of one bungalow and one duplex designed to appear similar to the single-family homes in the neighbourhood. For more information on the Habitat build, visit www.habitatncr.com.

Mayor plans rural expo for May 31 Rural businesses, organizations to display wards alongside Food Aid Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Mayor Jim Watson has made it a point to tout the city’s rural attributes, but even he was surprised to learn there is a cranberry bog in Ottawa. The Upper Canada Cranberry Farm in Osgoode is just one of the rural producers that will be on display during the first Mayor’s Rural Expo on May 31 at city hall. “We have such great assets that people don’t even know about,” Watson said. The idea to showcase a couple dozen of the city’s rural farms, museums, events and non-profit organizations emerged during the 2010 election campaign, when Watson said he was struck by how disconnected urban and even suburban residents are from the vast rural part of the city. “There wasn’t a sense that the downtown communities had a sense of how big rural Ottawa really is,” Watson said. Staging the expo during the annual Food Aid event is a way to bring the country to the city and encourage Ottawans to support small country businesses, the mayor said. See BARBECUE, page 39

Legion looks to partner with Military Family Resource Centre blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - The Kanata legion is looking at partnering up with the Military Family Resource Centre, providing space for the non-profit group for its programs and services. The resource centre wants to hold a parents’ drop-in program, starting in September, for parents serving in the military at the legion, where they can meet other military families to socialize. “It’s really important for families to have the opportunity to share experiences,” said Louise Hague, the resource centre’s executive director. The resource centre is also interested in offering a host of different programs – ranging from activities such as scrapbooking to caregiver groups – depending on the needs of the military community, which includes members of the military, with or without children. In return, the legion will have the chance to recruit prospective members. “It’s an opportunity for a partnership with the legion,” said Hague.

Partnerships are underway between legion branches and military family resources centres across Canada. The resource centre has entered into partnerships with legions, community groups and other organizations at more than 15 locations across Ottawa and Gatineau. In Kanata, the Military Family Resource Centre runs a parent drop-in centre at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. Some of its programs and services include helping newly posted service men and women find child care, access to a family doctor and assistance locating schools. “I wish to God those had been around when we were servicemen,” said Harry Needham, a member of the Kanata legion. The Military Family Resource Centre offers: • Child and parent programs • Licensed child care • Licensed home child care • Family separation and reunion services • Support and counselling for operational stress injury • Second language training

For more information about

the Military Family Resource Centre call 613-998-4888, or visit www.familyforce.ca. DONATION

The Military Family Resource Centre received a helping hand last week, when it accepted a $1,706 cheque from the Kanata legion’s poppy trust fund. The poppy fund collected

nearly $90,000 during last year’s campaign, with the money earmarked for the care of veterans as well as supports for youth. Some of the organizations that received funds are: • Perley and Rideau Veteran’s Health Centre: $5,000 • Branch bursaries: $10,000 • Meals on Wheels: $2,000 • Shepherds of Good Hope:

$1,000 • Commonwealth Vets: $1,500 • Queensway-Carleton Hospital: $2,450 • Branch foot-care clinic: $6,000 • Ontario Command fund for homeless veterans: $5,000 • Handicapped-accessible washroom: $5,000 The branch’s foot-care clinic is offered by appointment only on the first and last Tuesday of every month. The Kanata branch’s poppy and gaming funds have generated money for community, seniors and veterans groups for more than two decades. The legion collects between $6,000 to $7,000 every year for its gaming fund from its weekly bingos, held every Sunday from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at the legion, located at 70 Hines Rd. and from the sale of Nevada tickets. “We have donated $500 a month to charity for years,” said Needham, the chairman of the poppy and gaming trust committees. The legion also assists the community by offering nonprofit groups the free use of its halls.

Reinforcing our existing partnerships and assessing opportunities to create new ones is essential for greater cooperation between Canadians and Africans,” Johnston said in a release. During meetings with the Ghanaian president, government officials, and civil society, the Governor General will underscore Ghana’s good will and progress on governance, democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights. He will also witness first-hand the impact of the Canadian International Development Agency’s involvement in an agricultural research project on maize at the Crops Research Institute, and the success story of Canadian Kathy Knowles, who built a library and literacy program for disadvantaged children out of a 40-foot container in the Ghanaian capital, Accra. In Botswana, Johnston will acknowledge Canada’s support for the fight against HIV/ AIDS during visits to both theTebelopele HIV Testing and Counselling Centre and Stepping Stones International, an after-school community

outreach program serving orphaned and vulnerable adolescents and their caregivers. His visit to South Africa will see Johnston become the first Canadian representative of the Head of State to address a joint session of the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces at the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa. In Johannesburg, the Governor General will speak to South African and Canadian business leaders at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, the largest exchange on the African continent. Visits abroad by a governor general play an important role in Canada’s relations with other countries. McGuinty said Canada’s relationship with Africa needs improvement and strengthening. “Africa is an incredible continent with an incredible resource base and people. Personally, I believe that Canada should not and cannot abandon Africa,” said McGuinty. “This visit is about looking at existing relationships and looking importantly at new opportunities.”

EMC news – Ottawa South MP David McGuinty is accompanying the Governor General on a weeklong tour to three African countries. Gov. Gen. David Johnston is leading a delegation of Canadian public and private sector sector leaders in the fields of business, education, innovation, social justice and development. The tour will see Johnston visit Ghana, Botswana and South Africa, from May 13 to 22. “It’s a great honour to have been asked to do this,” said McGuinty. “This is an important mission for Canada and I am proud to be representing Ottawa South and Canada on the official delegation.” The delegation is expected to share experience and knowledge with their African counterparts. A release from the Governor General’s office said the exchanges will further develop the wide-ranging and multi-faceted relationships with Ghana, Botswana and South Africa and will provide greater visibility for bilateral co-operation. “The whole idea is to build stronger links with Africa, at the same time understanding better what is transpiring in those countries; what is there state of development, what is their state of play and what are the opportunities for Canadian businesses and organizations,” said McGuinty. In Ghana, the Governor General is expected to help promote Canada’s investment interests and trade collaboration at a business networking luncheon with Ghanaian and Canadian leaders. “My meetings with government officials and civil society will provide an opportunity to underscore Canada’s interests in further strengthening its commercial and education ties with all three countries, as well as to highlight good governance, the rule of law, democracy, freedom of ex-

Residents caught off guard by ATV trail proposal laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - News of a proposed ATV trail network that skirts along their road came as a surprise to some Osgoode residents. The network would use 23.1 kilometres of unopened city road allowances through Osgoode, but it would also require allowing all-terrain vehicles to ride along the shoulders of 8.3 km of roads. The Nation Valley ATV Club operates a trail network in a similar manner in North Grenville and North Dundas and would maintain the trails inside the City of Ottawa. Only club members would be permitted to use the trails and ATVs could only run during daytime hours. The idea is to create a trail “backbone,” which would hopefully be supplemented by trails through private property over time through agreements with owners, said Kris Gough, a member of the ATV club who has taken the lead on the project. City staff was originally reluctant to support the idea, said Derrick Moodie, rural development review manager, but he’s now “a lot more comfortable” with the idea, he said. Osgoode residents, on the other hand, felt differently. Around 10 of them came to Carp to speak to the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee on May 6 to ask the committee to delay a vote on a two-year trial period for the network. Six of seven residents of Blanchfield Road in particular were not impressed with the plans – nor the lack of notice. Affected residents were mailed letters two weeks before the committee meeting, but the network has been in the works for two years. Gough said he did everything in his power to get the word out, from hosting public meetings to communicating through Coun. Doug Thompson’s newsletters and speaking to the media. “It was never our intention to come into the commu-

ATV Trail plans Under the original plan, ATVs would be allowed on the shoulders of these roads: • 2nd Line Road between Belmeade and another road allowance and another section between Cabin and Osgoode Main • 3rd Line Road between a road allowance and McDiarmid • Cabin Road between Blanchfield and 2nd Line • Blanchfield Road between Springhill and Cabin

nity and cause controversy,” Gough said. “We would like to stay as far away from roads as possible.” Before the meeting even got underway, Thompson committed to finding a way to bypass Blanchfield Road through discussions with a couple of representatives for affected residents, as well as the ATV club. Gough is hoping a better alliance with community members will give the ATV club a way to connect and negotiate with property owners whose land could be used to bypass roads like Blanchfield. Comfortable with that compromise, the committee approved recommending the trail network pilot project to council. There will be ample time to discuss a Blanchfield detour because the item won’t go to council until June 12. “You have taken a lot of the wind out of my sails, and I thank you very much for that,” said Blanchfield resident Penny MacDonald. She was concerned about a reduction in property values. One problem Blanchfield Road resident Heather Hamilton had with the proposal was the amount of dust she expects it would create. Blanchfield is already disproportionately dusty even for a rural road, residents and Thompson agreed, and Hamilton and others worried that dust clouds kicked up by ATVs would reduce visibility and impede safety.

• Doyle Road (north-south section) from Snake Island Road to the east-west section of Doyle • Manotick Station Road between a road allowance and Nick Adams Road • Nick Adams Road from Manotick Station Road to the end of Nick Adams • Stagecoach Road between two road allowances • Osgoode Main Street between 2nd Line and 5673 Osgoode Main St. (the Red Dot Café)

Another Blanchfield resident, April Duncan, said her family uses ATVs but they oppose the trail network. She was also worried about dust, but she was also concerned that advertising an ATV trail would attract inconsiderate riders who are not club members, like the ones who frequently use and damage her property. Almost everyone agreed that the trail network wouldn’t do much about catching people who use ATVs illegally. “You’re not going to catch the ones who aren’t behaving,” said Linda LaFrambroise. Resident Jeff Parsons said he supports the creation of an ATV trail network but wondered how many people would be using it. The Nation Valley club currently has 175 members. Gough said the club is hoping to expand once it has a legal trail network to use inside the city. If the network were to be implemented, ATV club members would be on call 24/7 to respond to concerns from neighbours. Enforcement is conducted by the Ottawa police marine, dive and trails unit. The study also uncovered several instances of property owners encroaching onto the city road allowances. The city will be negotiating with those neighbours to remove the encroachments or enter into agreements to allow some use of the road allowances.

Barbecue to raise money for Ottawa Food Bank Continued from page 31

There are a whopping 1,128 farms operating within Ottawa’s boundaries and they produce a gross income of $206 million annually, Watson said. “When I tell people that, they are blown away,” he said. While many rural businesses and organizations rely on patronage from their local communities, Watson sees an opportunity for economic development. “We want to encourage people to go visit rural Ottawa,” he said. Whether it’s a meal in Manotick or a bed and breakfast in Cumberland, staying within city limits offers great opportunities for a staycation, the mayor said, and he wants to help show off those options. The expo will feature displays of everything from the Osgoode Medieval Festival and the Deifenbunker to the Dairy Farmers of Canada, and of course, the Upper Canada Cranberry Farm. The expo will kick off with a

$5 pancake breakfast supplied by Proulx Maple and Berry Farm and Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm from 7 to 9 a.m. The mayor won’t have to bring the travel-sized bottle of syrup from the Vanier sugar shack that he normally totes to such breakfasts because there will be ample real maple syrup on hand. More than 30 rural businesses, museums, festivals and organizations will display information and wares at booths from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Local celebrities will try their hands at milking a cow during two competitions taking place at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The Food Aid barbecue – a fundraiser for the Ottawa Food Bank – will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. For $10, hungry diners can grab a burger from The Works as well as chips and a drink. If you can’t attend the Food Aid barbecue, you can still donate $10 to the food bank by texting BEEF to 45678.

Seven or eight rural musicians, including the Osgoode High School band, will perform throughout the day. While the event is meant as a celebration of rural culture and business,

Watson said he and the rural members of city council will be at the expo and are open to talking about any rural issues residents might care to discuss. If the event is a success and the

exhibitors find it worthwhile, Watson said he will look at bringing it back next year. The city is spending $4,000 to put on the event, mostly in advertising and banners.

“Milos, I am going to Break you” A mini-revolution is brewing in North America. The approach is called “Progressive Tennis.” It is imported from European countries such as France and Belgium where it was used to successfully develop players like Justine Henin-Hardenne and Olivier Rochus. Progressive Tennis uses a systematic progression of court sizes, balls, and racquets, to scale the game down to an appropriate level for 5-10 year olds. Modified racquets and balls are not new. The equipment has been around for a while, as has the “graduated length” concept. Coaches have used bits and pieces for years seeing the advantage from the perspective of success, fun and safety. The difference this time is that all these elements have been brought together in a much more systematic way than ever before. Tennis companies now carry the full line of half-court and ¾-court progressive equipment including graduated, balls, racquets, lay down lines and nets. The power of the progressive tennis system is that it allows players to play quickly and successfully. In Progressive Tennis, the philosophy is that tennis is a great and fun game to play and the quicker and more skillfully a player can play the more fun it is. Each stage not only has specific equipment to aid success, but particular skills to develop as well. It is recommended a Game-Based Approach be used. The coach’s job is to get them to play, and help them learn to play better. Simply put, “Progressive Tennis” is used as a developmental tool to allow young children to improve their overall tennis skills faster so they can transition to the regular court with more ease. The OTA, NCTA, City of Ottawa and all of our clubs are committed to helping you and your children play this great game. Sean Sweeney OTA Regional Chair said that: “All of us are committed to helping introduce over 25 000 new kids to the game of tennis by Dec 2013”. So, call or drop by one of our great clubs below and get started today. You too can crush Milos and his 242KM serve. Well maybe not but you can have a great time trying.

Slower Balls, Smaller Courts, Right sized Racquets” Get started today.

Tennis has changed, come see how! WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE TENNIS?

• Progressive Tennis uses adjusted equipment for young participants and playing formats to match their level of play. This allows a much faster progression to truly enjoy the game. • Progressive Tennis focuses on the skill development to stimulate and maintain excitement and enjoyment. • Progressive Tennis is for ages 3 to 99+.

• Tennis is rapidly growing and is becoming more popular every year. Over 600,000 new players have started playing tennis since 2010 in Canada. • In Ottawa there is 1 tennis court for every 4,300 people. The National average is 1 person every 10,000. • The biggest area of tennis growth is with children under 12. • The Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) is a non profit organization that promotes participation in tennis as part of a healthy lifestyle and encourages the pursuit of excellence for all players. • Their #1 goal is to attract more people to play and support tennis on a sustained basis. • For more information go to www.tennisontario.com

CARRIER OF THE MONTH!

Grant to help wheelchair hockey league michelle.nash@metroland

EMC news - A local wheelchair hockey league is looking to expand its programming thanks to a grant from the province. The Ottawa Power Wheelchair Hockey league provides recreational and competitive floor hockey programs for people with disabilities. The league, which operates out of the Greenboro Community Centre, received a Ontario Trillium Grant of $5,900 to help expand from two teams to four, as well as purchase equipment and rent recreational space to in which to play. “This funding will help us continue to provide a professional, safe, adapted sports and recreation program for those whom suffer from disabilities,” said Donna Haycock, chairwoman of the league. “Wheelchair hockey provides players with an enabling ability, where even the most severely disabled person can compete and contribute to the success of their team.” The league doubled its roster this year and with the new funding it aims to continue expansion. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli announced the funding before dropping the ball ahead of Game 2 of a three game series between the league’s current teams on May 12. The two teams, the Gators and the Sharks, feature players using power wheelchairs and have limited or no upper body strength and have limited or no mobility. According to the league’s website, players have different disabilities. The majority of players have either cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.  The league is a co-ed, all ages format, with the youngest player only seven years old. Players come from across the city to play in the league, and in one case, a family drives from Kingston to give their 10-year-old son, Joey Kelly, a chance to play. “It’s the closest league we have,” said Linda Kelly, Joey’s mother. “This is his first year playing and he loves it.

He just lights up while he plays.” The game is competitive, and very fast-paced. Every team member gets the chance to play. Kelli Tonner’s 11-year-old son, Kellen Schleyer, plays for the Sharks, and she said she gets knots in her stomach every Sunday before the game. “He is very competitive and this

game and team allow his competitive streak to come out,” Tonner said. “It’s as challenging and exciting as any other game.” Haycock said the organization has come a long way in the four years since starting up the charity league, and thanked all the volunteers for their continued support.

High school rugby player dies after hit Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - Rugby player Rowan Stringer, a Grade 12 student at John McCrae Secondary School, died May 12 following a hit during a girls rugby game on May 8. Stringer, who played with the Barrhaven Scottish Rugby Football Club, took a hit during a home game against St. Joseph High School. Her family made the decision on May 11 to take her life support, and began preparations to donate the 17-year-old team captain’s organs – an easy decision, her father said. “When we made the decision to stop interventions on Saturday, it was very easy for us to transition into going through the process of donating her organs, because that is exactly what she wanted to have done,” Gordon Stringer said. She had already been accepted into nursing school at the University of Ottawa in September, and wanted to do international aid work with children in the future. Two children at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto received her kidneys and will no longer

Her lungs also went to Toronto for a young woman in her 20s, her pancreas to Toronto and her liver to London, Ont. “Her heart stayed in Ottawa, just where it should be,” Kathleen Stringer, Rowan’s mother, wrote on Facebook. “This brings great joy and solace to us.”

Gordon Stringer said that she was tackled during the game, and she the ground awkwardly, head first. Her teammates told him that she sat up for a couple of seconds before falling back down and losing consciousness. “We have no qualms about the sport or anything. She loved it. We loved going to watch her

and everything, but it is a pretty rough sport and she liked that,” he said. “She liked to get in the rough and tumble and she was a pretty good athlete, but she took a pretty hard hit,” he said. “As a school system, we are so extremely saddened and we extend our sincere condolences to the Stringer family,” said board spokesperson Sharlene Hunter. Decisions on the rest of the season for high school rugby teams has not been decided yet, she said. The John McCrae rugby game scheduled for May 13 against St. Mark was cancelled, along with all school sports for May 13 and 14. The board said that support staff would be on hand to help students through the grieving process. Rugby Canada’s CEO, Graham Brown, ordered condolences to her family and friends. “Now is the time for all of us to come together and support the Stringer family as they deal with this terrible loss. We will provide updates on how the Canadian rugby community can support the Stringers,” he said.

also participates in dragon boat racing and recreational ice hockey. After several more tests, Hiscoe underwent surgery on April 2. The surgery was a success. She credits her daughters, boyfriend, family and friends for getting her through her illness. Hiscoe didn’t slow down, even after her diagnosis. Two days after she was told she had cancer, she visited a Tommy & Lefebvre store with a friend who was looking to purchase a bike. A store employee told

her about Ride the Rideau, a fundraiser for cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital. It seemed almost like fate to Hiscoe. “I’m not a cyclist, but I wanted to do the ride and give back,” she said. With that, she found a new motivator: Hiscoe left the store with a bike and a new mission. Now the team captain of LuLu-Won-Lung and Co., Hiscoe has built a team that includes her daughter, Kylie Plummer, her boyfriend, Andy Dentinger, and other close friends, who supported her illness with daily phone calls, emails and visits. “Regardless of the outcome, I wanted to do something to help others,” she said. Doctors have since pronounced Hiscoe cancer-free and she considers herself as “one of the luckiest people ever.” To learn more about Ride the Rideau, to register to ride or sign up to volunteer, visit www.ridetherideau.ca.

Exactly one year ago, Louise Hiscoe came down with a persistent and debilitating cough that kept her up at night. The 49-year-old mother of three was literally left speechless and unable to work for weeks. Doctors suspected pneumonia, and then asthma. When medication didn’t fix the problem, she sought further testing. Following a CT scan and a biopsy at The Ottawa Hospital, Hiscoe was diagnosed with cancer on the lower lobe of her right lung this past February. Hiscoe, who works as a manager in the federal government, still remembers her drive to her doctor’s office to receive the news. “I was scared,” said the west Ottawa resident. “When the doctor told me the news – it was Stage 1B cancer – I was stunned and numb. I thought, ‘that doesn’t seem right. I’m too fit and healthy.’” Hiscoe has never smoked and has always been active. A regular at the gym, she

Aries, something irresistible keeps grabbing your attention. Don’t overindulge too much or you will regret the decision later on. Exercise moderation. Taurus, you may be tempted to run away from a challenging situation, but it is in your best interest to hunker down and face the problem. You won’t be going it alone. Gemini, you seem to quickly conquer tasks that others struggle with. It could be thanks to your ability to focus, but look over your work to make sure it’s correct. Cancer, while many things come easily to you, there is one particular situation that continually proves problematic. You might have to scale a few mountains to handle it.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

Leo, this week you might be better off tackling things on your own instead of looking to others for support. This will help minimize any potential distractions.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

You have a few secrets you are not willing to share just yet, Virgo. That’s alright. Keeping some of your agenda private will inspire curiosity and be to your advantage.

Inspire others through your music and charm!

Libra, you may be trying to get a certain person alone so you can have some one-on-one time together. A rendezvous is possible this week. Scorpio, you are at an impasse because you are second-guessing some of your most recent decisions. You may need to shift your focus to get back on track. The old adage that if you want something done right you have to do it yourself rings especially true this week, Sagittarius. Your skills are put to the test. Capricorn, there is a certain window of time this week when you will be extremely efficient and effective. The other times you may as well throw in the towel.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, you have to work out a few loose ends before you are free for a much-needed vacation or just time spent doing whatever it is that makes you happy.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Pisces, sometimes love can cause pain, but this is the way to grow and learn from mistakes. There are lessons to be learned in a few days.
