Voyageur canoe paddles all the way to Washington

By Kathleen Wilker

On Wednesday October 17, a voyageur canoe led by Westboro Beach’s Max Finkelstein was set to arrive in Washington D.C., after 40 days of paddling the rivers, canals, bays and water ways that connect this Capitol to our Capital. We caught up with Finkelstein

while he was in the boat en route to Washington and asked him about the highlights of the trip. “Successfully crossing all five miles of Chesapeake Bay in howling wind was exciting,” reported Finkelstein. “And paddling past the Statue of Liberty in New York was incredible.” Along the way, Finkelstein’s crew dropped off members who had to

return to work and family responsibilities and picked up new crew members who intentionally and spontaneously joined the trip. Most notable among the additional crew mates were young sailors aboard tall ships docked at a Tall Ships festival in Philadelphia during the weekend of October 6-7. “We were welcomed Continued on page 19

Students united for a great cause

Your Retirement – Are you Rolling the Dice?

Charity breakfast offers learning opportunities for volunteers

By Paula Roy

In the early hours of November 2, the busiest eatery in Kitchissippi will be the Nepean High School cafeteria, where approximately 200 students, teachers, parents and community members will gather for the 23rd annual United Way Breakfast. Organized by Grade 12 students Grace Armstrong, Vivian Eyre, Claire Gibbons and Madi Haslam, the breakfast is a cherished event which, since its inception, has raised almost $70,000 in support of the United Way and the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre Foundation. Having attended the breakfast for the past seven years, Claire Gibbons joined the organizing committee because she loves to be involved in a wide variety of activities at school. Her role is to coordinate publicity and advertising for the event, generating increased awareness within the school and in the broader community. “For me, helping orga-

nize the breakfast means being part of an important and useful Nepean tradition,” said Gibbons. “I certainly am gaining a better appreciation for the value of organizational skills. I am thinking about studying business at university so this is a really relevant and useful experience for me.” “Organizing the Breakfast has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of people and learn about networking,” added Grace Armstrong whose role on the team is to solicit dona-

tions of food from various community partners and liaise with caterers Dave Smith and Scott Singer. “Helping with the United Way Breakfast has pushed me to improve my time management, likely a skill that will serve me well as I pursue my dream of becoming an interior designer,” said Armstrong. It’s Vivian Eyre’s job to supervise the team of student volunteers which has been actively soliciting door and raffle prizes from Kitchissippi businesses; she’s also responsible for

ticket sales. “I wanted to take this on because I was inspired by the previous organizing teams,” said Eyre. “Volunteering is essential because a lot of the great things that happen in our community would not get done otherwise. I’m learning how to delegate to peers and deal with rejection,” she added with a laugh. The team’s fourth member, Madi Haslam, has been busy inviting local media and political figures to participate in the event. Her motivation? “I love that it’s youth helping youth,” she replied. “It’s a great cause and I’m enjoying dealing with the school administration, other students and, of course, the celebrities as well.” All four feel it’s important for to support these two deserving charities as many of the school’s students enjoy great opportunities in their own lives.

Singing for your supper Foodie music and local farmers partner for Just Food harvest benefit concert

By Kathleen Wilker

“Guzzle, guzzle, guzzle, chomp!” sing the Ewashko Singers as a loud burp erupts from the bass section. The choir, led by Laurence Ewashko, is preparing an all-food concert for their upcoming Songs to Savour concert on October

“This is an interesting way to combine the music community and the foodie community,” says Moscoe who began singing with roles in musicals at Nepean High School and has worked as an assistant voice teacher at the Ottawa School of Speech and Drama.

“I wanted to keep singing at university, so I joined the Ottawa Festival Chorus—a larger choir also conducted by Laurence Ewashko—and then I was pleased to be invited to be part of this smaller group for such a fun and worthwhile cause,” says Moscoe who loves singing with musicians from a wide range of backgrounds. Erin O’Manique, the manager of operations at Just Food, is a life-long choral singer. When the Westboro resident found out about the concert, she asked if she could join the Ewashko Singers for the occasion and has been enjoying all the food-relat-

McKeller Park’s Adam Moscoe is a fourth year psychology student at the University of Ottawa and a delighted member of the choir. “We’ll be singing about peas, chilli, chocolate and prunes. And we’ll be ending with a famous drinking song from La Traviata,” says Moscoe with a grin. The all-food concert is in honour of a dinner featuring foods from Savour Ottawa farmers which will be happening before and after the singing. The event is a fundraiser in support of Just Food.

ed repertoire she’s been rehearsing with the choir. “Food is a celebration. And so is music,” says O’Manique who will be returning to Bach after the concert is over. O’Manique explains that Just Food has a lot of new initiatives including a Food Policy Plan for the City of Ottawa which looks at food production from a more holistic perspective than the current collection of policies around growing, producing and selling food. Understanding that some Just Food events cater more to the gourmet crowd and others cater more to the food activism crowd, O’Manique notes that it’s important to blend both crowds so that everyone has access to healthy, local, affordable food. Westboro’s Wallace Beaton is a member of the bass section and loves how light-hearted, funny and beautiful the group’s food music is. “Lots of times concerts are a lot of work and stress for the performers, but I think we’ll be having as much fun as the audience singing about prunes.” Beaton is pleased the concert is raising funds and awareness for Just Food, with its focus on healthy, local food for all. “There’s a lot of emphasis on the Food Bank, and it’s very important, but it’s mostly about local distribution of highly processed food that’s manufactured elsewhere,” says Beaton. “There are a lot of other food organizations that don’t receive the same amount of publicity or support as the Food Bank but are focused instead on healthy, local food.”

Rethinking public spaces On October 23, from 5-8:00 p.m. students from McGill University’s Planning School will lead a Community Design Workshop at the Hintonburg Community Centre. Invited by the Wellington West BIA to prepare a Public Spaces Enhancement Plan for the neighbourhood, the graduate students have chosen this urban planning project as part of their course work. The focus of the workshop will be on discussing ways of enhancing sidewalks and public spaces. The goal is to increase the animation and livability of Wellington West. Leading up to the workshop, community members are invited to fill out a survey provided by the students on how Wellington West currently functions.

Continued from page 8 describes Gluzman as a “very generous man, someone who encouraged every member of the firm to volunteer and to give back to the community. He invested in the education of accounting students by establishing an annual bursary program and was a supporter of local businesses, giving generously to Westfest.” Joanne Davis whose hairstyling business, Richmond Beauty Salon, is a few doors down from GGFL knew Gluzman for 31 years. She said that “his fun came from doing for others.” He was “Westboro’s fair landlord. It was not about money,” said Davis, “but about getting small businesses running. He liked to keep hard-working people working.” David Gluzman remembers his father getting his hair cut last year outside the salon on a park bench. His father owned several properties on the north side of Richmond Road in Westboro and “he took great joy in visiting his tenants.” Gluzman describes his father as a ‘tough business man’ but someone whose “family always came first. He was home by 6 pm with his briefcase and would often work at the kitchen table in the evenings. My father had a soft spot for new Canadians and waived a lot of fees,” says David, but his father was “very private about his philantropic endeavours. Back in the 1950s business deals were settled with a handshake.” Leon Gluzman’s legacy lives on in the accounting firm he co-founded, the annual bursary program he established, the financial support he continued to provide the orphanage in Poland, and in the hearts and minds of so many people he helped in the Westboro community and abroad. In David Gluzman’s eulogy, he spoke of when his father “sat in awe, as his childhood was brought to life on stage at the GCTC in 2009. The play was The Children’s Republic. My father wanted people to know about Janusz Korczak – it was the orphanage that he entered as a young child in Poland. My father was the last surviving member.”

Leon Gluzman, fondly called Mr. G. by his colleagues at Ginsberg, Gluzman, Fage & Levitz Chartered Accountants in Westboro, died on October 4 in his 99th year, having lived a full life as businessman, philanthropist and family man. Leon Gluzman was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1914. Plans to immigrate in 1923 with his family to Canada were cut short by his father’s death at age 30. Gluzman was placed in Dom Sierot, better known as the Janusz Korczak Orphanage for 6 years. The orphanage was famous throughout Europe, well ahead of its time in dealing with the ‘mental and psychical well-being of children.’ The orphan’s home had its own Parliament, Court of Justice and newspaper and was a world run by children under Leon Gluzman, 1914-2012 the watchful eye of Korczak. Photo supplied by Gluzman always said that “The the Gluzman family Home for Orphans shaped my life and decided my fate.” In 1926, Leon Gluzman left Poland for Canada where he set out to fulfill a vow he had made to himself that “once I had accumulated sufficient means I would make every effort towards the family’s reunification.” Tragically, both his mother and sister died in the Holocaust. Leon Gluzman’s life has been described in the recently published book May Their Lot be Lighter... Of Janusz Korczak and his Pupil by Olga Medvedeva-Nathoo. Leon Gluzman In Canada, Leon Gluzman first mastered the English language and later went on to study accounting. He married In 1946, Gluzman co-founded his Ann Greenberg in 1939.

Fine flavour first for craft brewmasters Continued from page 12 Beyond the Pale’s initial offerings will include the Rye Guy India Pale Ale (IPA), the higher-alcohol Imperial Super Guy IIPA, The Darkness oatmeal stout and a yet-to-be-named grapefruit wheat beer. Once the business finishes clearing myriad bureaucratic hurdles and officially opens in

early November, the team will be marketing the estimated 3000 litres of beer produced at Beyond the Pale each month to beer-oriented bars and restaurants across the city, including some in the immediate area. They’ll also be welcoming visitors to their brewery – it’s a cheerful, refurbished space that I am looking forward to visiting often. Hintonbrew Stirling Avenue’s Kelly Serjeantson heads up Hintonbrew, a not-yet-commercial operation that brought new life to some idle home brewing equipment she threat-

ened to pitch from her basement. Her husband and some friends brought it back into service, and Hintonbrew was born. Now, Jason Pottie, who lives on Smirle Avenue, is her brewmaster, bringing with him more than ten years’ experience. “He has developed his craft through experimentation, most recently brewing beer from hops grown in his own backyard. Jason has schooled me on the chemistry of beer and introduced my palate to flavours I’d never had before. I am an excellent taste tester!” she adds with a laugh. “We try to source local elements, whether it be types of grains, local hops, fruits, honey or even wood, and use them to develop our own take on beer styles. This is the approach we’ve used for our Timber Raft IPA and Francis McGee Orange Honey Wheat. Involving the community in the creation process also helps build their thirst for our products. They want to be part of something different. We’re confident when Hintonbrew starts distributing product in the future, this will continue.” When asked if being part of a maledominated industry draws attention, Serjeantson admits that while it is uncommon to have a woman as the head of a brewery, the craft beer industry, particularly in Ottawa, is close-knit and supportive. “While we each have our individual goals, the main objective of the community is to enlighten people to the delights and intricacies of craft beer.”

Local brewers crafting pints Behind the Brewery Market

By Paula Roy

Sunshine, suds and great grub. That pretty much sums up the first annual Ottawa Brewery Market, held last Saturday in Hintonburg. The long lineup to get into the event was ample proof of the current love affair with craft beer; it’s a trend that has inspired several Hintonburg residents to get into the game.

Ashton Brewing Company West Wellington’s MJ Hodgins quite literally grew up in a bar. His dad opened Ottawa’s first Patty’s Pub in 1975 and MJ has worked with him for many years. “We took over the old Mill in Ashton, just outside Ottawa, and decided to make it into a brewpub,” explained Hodgins. “My brother and I subsequently trained at several breweries to gain a better

understanding of the process. Now that I’m in the

Even in 1891, our founders thought a great round of golf shouldn’t take all day.

Located just 10 minutes from downtown Ottawa, The Royal offers members the option of playing the historic 18-hole Championship course in four hours, or the full-sized Royal Nine in about two—leaving them ample time to spend with friends and family before carrying on with their day. If you’re looking for considerably more from your golf experience, join the Club. Start the conversation by contacting membership@rogc.com or visit www.rogc.com/new

brewing business, I can appreciate how important it is to be hands-on; it’s definitely a seven-days-aweek job! It’s like bar work, which I am used to, but I really like having control over what I sell. It’s a passion.” Hodgins feels that his extensive experience running pubs helps him the most as a brewer. “I’ve learned what people are looking for in craft beer and this has helped us come up with distinctive beers. We have six permanent brands and then an additional seasonal variety which rotates every two months. With our wellrounded, handcrafted ales our aim is to hit multiple taste points in the market.” Ashton Brewing’s beers are popular in Kitchissippi, appearing regularly at such establishments as Back Lane Café, the Wellington Gastropub and the Elmdale Tavern. Having tasted the recently re-launched Ashton Vanilla Stout at the Brewery Market, I can attest to the talents of Hodgins and his team. Beyond the Pale Lifelong Island Park area residents Shane Clark and his father Al, together with their partner Rob McIsaac of Clarendon Avenue are eagerly anticipating the opening of their brewery, dubbed Beyond the Pale, located a stone’s throw from the Parkdale Market. McIsaac and Al Clark bring a variety of business experiences to the venture, while Shane Clark has been an avid homebrewer for over six years. “Shane’s beer is great and we saw that the local craft beer market is booming, so we figured it could support another brewery,” said McIsaac of their decision to turn a hobby into a business. “We are brewing the beer we love to drink and hope others will love it as well. It’s all about small batches and big flavours.” Continued on page 13

Westboro, Hintonburg and other area neighbourhoods have the chance to see who’s the most energy efficient. The community group Sustainable Living Ottawa West (SLOWest. ca) is inviting people to join the Neighbourhood Energy Competition, in which residents challenge each other to lower their energy consumption. SLOWest has partnered with SwitchHop, a free web-based service that lets people track their energy use. Residents who sign up on the SwitchHop website (switchhop.com/competition) can see in real time how much energy they’re using and what it’s costing them, as well as how their neighbourhood is faring. Alex Hay of Champlain Park signed up for the competition to find out how his energy consumption compares to that of other households. “I think mine is low,” says Hay. “I’m curious to see if that’s a false perception or not.” “I think I know what to do in terms of achieving efficiency with electricity,” continues Hay, “but it’s interesting to have this very specific information about when I’m using more.” The competition aspect, he adds is “just for fun.” Elissa Cameron-Caluori of Hintonburg has also signed up. She works for SwitchHop, so has been tracking her energy use on the site for several months, but decided to join the

neighbourhood competition. “Mostly I joined out of curiosity, to see what other people in my neighbourhood were doing,” explains Cameron-Caluori. “I’m not expecting major changes because I think I’m doing pretty good right now.” Still, she says, the site will allow her to identify changes in her energy use since her move in May from a three-bedroom house to a two-bedroom apartment. She’s especially interested in knowing whether her electric baseboard heating will use more energy than the gas furnace she had before. “Maybe once we turn on our baseboard heaters and find that they’re really high, we’ll turn on only half of them and see if we can heat our apartment that way, or we’ll just wear more sweat-

ers,” she laughs. SLOWest’s Bill Shields says the competition is a way for people to make simple changes to reduce energy consumption with support and encouragement from others. “That’s why it’s neighbourhood-based, explains Shields. “It seems to take it to another level, rather than just trying to do this alone in your own household.” SLOWest hopes the neighbourhood competition will stir up some community spirit and build on Kitchissippi’s tradition of community engagement. To complement the competition, SLOWest will be partnering with Ecology Ottawa, the EnviroCentre and Mountain Equipment Co-op to offer energy conservation workshops starting in November.

There’s also a social aspect. “You can add friends and compare your usage with them, and you can compare yourself to your average neighbour,” says Hebert. “You don’t have to share your information with anyone; if you’re just looking to get some insights about your house, you can sign up and the only person who sees your information is you.” If you add friends, they won’t be able to see the same detail as you, although you’ll be able to see each other’s total use over time. The idea, says Hebert, is to help people identify and make small changes around their homes that can add up to a large aggregate impact.

They’ve paddled Capital to Capitol with bullrushes, trees, rocks and herons. And then we could compare that to agricultural lands and cities. There was such a variety of river edges from naturalized to garbage dumps. And when we reached the harbours, we paddled beside huge oceangoing vessels. All these water ways are connected,” says Bonnenfant. On October 18, the paddlers will join in a 40th anniversary celebration of the Clean Water Act in Washington where they’ll give a short presentation on their trip. Attending this international event is a fitting conclusion to their journey to “protect and restore the waters we all share.”

Continued from page 1 to the festival, we slept on the deck of a beautiful old ship and got to know the crews of those boats,” says Finkelstein. Having the opportunity to connect with marinas, maritime museums, water conservation authorities and communities along the route was one of the key reasons Finkelstein embarked on the journey. For Ottawa artist Dot Bonnenfant, who paddled with the canoe for the first few weeks, the most memorable experience after the comradarie of the crew was the diversity of water ways they travelled through. “We paddled along quasi-wilderness

Continued from page 20 Citing Canada-wide polling that shows twothirds of Canadians believe climate change to be a serious problem, Hodgson extrapolates that something like 600,000 people in Ottawa are likely to hold that view. “There are a lot of forces taking aim at this problem at the national, provincial, and international levels, but I felt that no one was trying to do what I wanted to do,” he explains. What he hoped to do when he launched his blog in the spring of 2011 was focus on local people, local politicians, and the local scene. Hodgson describes the City of Ottawa as “falling by the wayside” on the issue. His blog has chronicled that lack of action, but he refuses to focus just on the negative. As a recent graduate of Al Gore’s Climate Reality training, Hodgson is now augmenting his blog posts with community presentations to inform other “concerned citizens.” His blog says that “in the face of this enormous problem, our elected officials are not being proactive on climate change. Why? Mainly because they don’t believe it will keep them in office.” “It is our responsibility to tell them it will,” he writes. And what about transforming the issue into a dynamic topic of conversation at social gatherings? How can that happen? “We have to have success stories so that people feel like they’re joining a winning team,” he says. “The issue isn’t going to go away. We are going to have to talk about it, and we have to talk about it more constructively.” One of the things that Hodgson says the city could do is to implement a sustainability lens or a carbon emissions lens—similar to the accessibility lens it passed a couple of years ago that made buildings accessible to people with disabilities. “With everything they do, they can be asking, have we found the best way to minimize the impact our actions are having on our greenhouse gas emissions? And that’s not radical.” Hodgson will do a free presentation and help launch SLOWest’s neighbourhood energy conservation competition on Thursday, Nov. 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. at MEC, 366 Richmond Road. slowest.ca for more info.

ClimateOttawa: Opening up a conversation on a taboo subject Blogger tackles climate change at the local level

By Debra Huron

Describing himself simply as a “concerned citizen,” Charles Hodgson believes climate change has become a subject that sits squarely with sex, politics and religion as a conversation

stopper at social gatherings. Since he started his blog, which chronicles his attempts to change other citizens’ minds and influence elected officials, the 54-year-old resident of Champlain Park neighbour-

hood has counselled a move from denial to action. “If you have a problem, not talking about it is not the way to solve it,” he says. Continued on page 21
