The Independent#DISCOVERBARRHAVEN More than quick oil changes at Barrhaven parade sponsor Mr. Lube

It’s a busy time of the year at Mr. Lube in Barrhaven. “We’re definitely busy with people getting their cars ready for winter,” said Francois Trudel of the Barrhaven Mr. Lube location. There is also another big event going on for Mr. Lube, as they are a sponsor of next weekend’s Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade. This year’s parade takes place along Strandherd Drive Sat., Nov. 18, beginning at 5 p.m. The parade will be especially big for Barrhaven, with last year’s event postponed due to bad weather and high winds that made the possibility of having the parade unsafe for spectators and participants. “We try to participate in as many activities like this as we can,” Trudel said. “We have been involved in the parade, as well as the Barrhaven Canada Day in the past.

We take part in most events that the Barrhaven BIA is involved with.” The parade route is perfect for Mr. Lube, as they are located at the end of the route. They are located at Strandherd and Greenbank, in front of Ross’ Your Independent Grocer and beside McDonald’s. Aside from getting ready for the parade, the staff at Mr. Lube is busy getting local vehicles ready for the winter season. Every time you visit, they perform a courtesy check to make sure that your car is in top working order. In addition to oil changes, they can also perform other routine car maintenance – from fluid changes to air filters, wiper blades and battery replacements, and everything in between. Not only that, they will perform minor services free of charge. Mr. Lube follows manufacturer specifications for each vehicle to ensure your car is well maintained to warranty approved standards. “It’s our busy time of year, but we have added additional staff to get us through the season,”

Mr. Lube is one of the sponsors of the 2018 Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade Saturday.

Trudel said. “We have some seasonal employees who are very good who work in other jobs, but they come back to us each year when we get into our busy season.” Trudel said that the one area of the Barrhaven Mr. Lube business that is rapidly growing is its tire business. “We carry a full line of tires from various manufacturers,” said Trudel. “We also store tires for people purchasing their winter tires.” While Mr. Lube is known for its combination of quick service and the quality of their work,

they also strive for quick service in its tire business. “At some places this time of year, there is a two or three week wait to get your tires changed,” said Trudel. “Our objective is to get you back on the road and going as quickly as possible. Our technicians also check the tread depth on the tires of our customers.” The Mr. Lube brand was born in 1976 in Edmonton when Arnold and Clifford Giese, a hardworking, forwardthinking father and son team, set up their very first Mr. Lube location. The plan was simple: to

deliver no hassle, fast turn-around oil changes without having to make an appointment. Realizing they had hit on something special, Arnold and Clifford allowed other like-minded entrepreneurs to get in on the act with their franchise program. Set out in 1981, this program made sure that every new location held true to the original ideals set out by our founders. The timing was perfect. Before long, Mr. Lube locations started popping up all over Canada. Since then, Mr. Lube has grown into Canada’s largest quick lube brand

and have evolved into a complete automotive maintenance service provider. Mr. Lube now has more than 170 locations, including one in Barrhaven. The Barrhaven Business Profile is brought to you by the Barrhaven BIA. We encourage you to shop locally and support the businesses that create jobs and support so many organizations and events in our wonderful community.

Honour Roll student at home in the water and in the classroom

Name: Caitlin Hayes

Who are your favourite authors? “Kiera Cass and Jenny Han.”

Championships for three consecutive years, Gold at the 2014 Ontario Winter Games, Gold in the FINA Category at the 2015 Hilton Worldwide Invitational, as well as receiving Ottawa Sports Awards in 2014, 2015, and 2016 for our successful seasons. We would not have been able to accomplish so much as a team, had it not been for our fantastic coaches, who always expected us to try our best, and for our ability as swimmers to work together.”

Accomplishments: “I have been on the Honour Roll for all my years in high school, and have been the recipient of Academic Awards in subjects such as French, Science, and Gym. This past September I was a Leader for my school’s Leadership Camp. I was also a competitive synchronized swimmer throughout the majority of my high school career. As a team, and with the help of our amazing coaches, we achieved Gold at the Provincial

Activities/Interests: “I’ve always loved anything to do with water, especially swimming in the ocean! Exercise has become a recent hobby, since it’s an excellent way for me to release stress. Coaching synchro is a strong passion of mine as my goal is to provide the same quality of coaching that I received as a swimmer. I love being creative and thinking outside of the box. So if I am writing a story, drawing, or solving a problem, I always try to find imaginative ideas

Career Goals: “If I’m being completely honest, I have no idea what I want to do as a career. I don’t think that anybody at the age of 17 should be expected to know exactly how they spend the rest of their life. I am looking into many programs, such as Environmental Science, Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Ocean Sciences, and Life Sciences, as well as various schools like Queens, Carleton, Dalhousie, and Ottawa University. My ultimate goal is to help people or help the environment. Currently I’m very interested in putting an end to global warming, but I’m unsure whether I would like to solve that problem from a technological or a biological perspective. However, I know that I will be satisfied with

my career choice, if I’m able to make the world a better place.”

Comment: “I have had a lot of guidance over the years to help me become the person I am today. Although there are too many to name, I want to thank my amazing family and friends for always being there for me, and pushing me to be more outgoing. I also want to thank my coaches, who I will always look up to, and the great teachers who always hold me to such high expectations. I don’t want to list names in case I forget someone, but for anyone reading this who has ever pushed me to do better, been nitpicky, helped me through tough times, or held me to a high standard, please know that I say thank you with all my heart! I would be nowhere without you.”

INDEPENDENT Editorial

Ontario electricity prices set to keep rising The Ontario government’s rigorous pursuit of renewables has increased electricity costs far more than necessary. The government recently released an update to its long-term energy plan, projecting that the cost of electricity for homes and businesses will keep rising over the next 20 years. For example, the average monthly electricity bills for residents and large industrial customers in northern Ontario will jump 52 per cent. Ontario’ electricity prices are already the highest in Canada and among the highest in North America. But despite the high prices, the government of Premier Kathleen Wynne recently reaffirmed its commitment to costly solar and wind power, which is distorting market prices at the expense of Ontario’s current and future ratepayers. Ontario’s electricity market is a stark example of what happens when government picks technology ‘winners’ and ‘losers.’ The government chose wind and solar power over cheaper alternatives such as nuclear, hydroelectric or clean coal power. Between November 2016 and October 2017, the rate paid to wind generators ($140 per megawatt hour or MWh, a common unit for measuring power) was more than double that of hydro and nuclear generators. In addition, the rate paid to solar generators ($480 per MWh) was more than seven times the rate paid to nuclear generators ($66 per MWh) and more than eight times the rate paid to hydroelectric generators ($58 per MWh). Clearly, there’s a substantial price difference between the rates paid to wind, solar and biofuel generators, and the rates paid to other generators. The high cost for renewable sources is even more glaring when you consider that, in 2016, combined solar, wind and biomass generated less than seven per cent of electricity in Ontario. Because the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow, the government also had to secure more natural gas capacity as a backup to renewable sources, increasing Ontario’s gas capacity by nine per cent. As a result, the province realized a 26 per cent increase in capacity from 2005 to 2015. Meanwhile, the demand for electricity declined, partly due to rising electricity costs. The increase in capacity coupled with lower electricity demand has resulted in significant oversupply, which must often be exported at prices below cost. From 2008 to 2016, residential electricity prices in Ontario increased by 71 per cent – more than double the national average. To make matters worse, a recent study shows Ontario’s skyrocketing electricity prices cost the province more than 74,000 manufacturing jobs between 2008 and 2015. The government seems uninterested in meaningful policy reforms that would reduce electricity prices. Instead, with its so-called Fair Hydro Plan, the government hides the true costs of Ontario’s energy policies by shifting some of the cost from electric bills onto current (and future) tax bills. The unfortunate reality is Ontario residents and businesses will continue to see their electricity bills rise due to the government’s poor policy decisions. Troy Media. Kenneth P. Green is a senior director; Elmira Aliakbari and Ashley Stedman are analysts, at the Fraser Institute.

PEDORTHICS Q: How do I know if I need custom foot orthotics? A: If you are having foot, arch, heel, knee, hip or even low back pain, a custom foot orthotic may help. Your doctor or physiotherapist can help determine whether a referral to a Canadian Certified Derek Gilmer Pedorthist would help. A detailed Canadian Certified Pedorthist assessment performed by a Pedorthist, can establish whether an orthotic will alleviate your particular foot, lower extremity or back problem. A custom foot orthotic can help reduce unnecessary stresses and pain by supporting the feet within the shoes to encourage the proper foot alignment, or by relieving pressure on the foot to accommodate different conditions or deformities.

HOmE HEalTH CaRE Q:I’ve seen a device called the “Circulation Booster” advertised in TV. The ad said it was for people with swollen ankles and cold feet. Could you tell me how this Circulation Booster works? A: The Circulation Booster has been a strong seller here michele Sauter at Fallowfield Pharmasave! Home Health Care Manager Designed to increase circulation, reduce swelling and alleviate aches and pains, the Circulation Booster is roughly the size of a bathroom scale. It’s easy to use! Simply place your feet on the foot pads, select your desired level of intensity, and relax while therapeutic electrical impulses stimulate muscles in the lower legs (increasing circulation). Want to try for yourself? We’re pleased to offer a complimentary 2-day free demo!

PRINTING Q: What do I need to supply to get a print job done? A: Focus on the content of the information you want to have printed. Think about the message that you are trying to convey with the printed material. Prepare your material clearly, provide verbiage and logos, photos or illustrations electronically where possible. Q: Can I do my own work at home for printing? A: If you have the proper programs and are capable of making a high resolution PDF. Proper printing design software allows for colour separations, bleeds, register marks and a host of functions meant for the printing industry.

Football might be in his pedigree, but hockey is the sport for Serron Noel By Jeff Morris Serron Noel never got the chance to see his father play football, but he has heard the stories. Dean Noel, still an Ottawa legend from the days when he was known as “Dean, Dean, the Touchdown Machine” while playing high school football at Laurentian, would end up having a successful career as a running back with the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Ottawa Rough Riders. “My dad’s career was finished before I was born, so I never got to see him play,” Serron said. Serron has found his success on the ice. With 10 goals in just 15 games with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League this year, Serron is climbing the ladder on the scouting lists for the 2018 NHL Draft in June. Growing up in Barrhaven, Serron played his minor hockey with the Nepean Raiders before moving on to the Ottawa Senators AAA program. As a Bantam, he had 23 points in 24 games. The Brockville

Braves of the CCHL drafted hi, and he spent the 2015-16 season with the Braves’ Midget AAA team, scoring 17 goals and adding 11 assists for 28 points in 45 games. He was drafted by the Oshawa Generals and joined the club last season, notching 21 points in 63 games as a rookie. This year, Noel is using his rare blend of size and speed to put up impressive numbers. He has 10 goals and four assists for 14 points in his first 15 games. He also scored a goal for Canada in the U18 Ivan Hlinka Tournament in the Czech Republic. Serron is listed at 6’5”, 203 pounds. “He’s closer to 6’6” right now,” said his father, Dean, who played for the Tiger-Cats and Ottawa Rough Riders at 5’10”, 215 pounds. “I have a nephew who is about the same size as Serron, and I had an uncle who was 6’6”. In our family, we have all kinds of different sizes.” A CFL pedigree is not uncommon in today’s OHL and NHL. Cody Ceci’s father, Parri, was a teammate of Noel’s with the Bootleggers and played for the Calgary

Stampeders. Parri Ceci was a Vanier Cup MVP as a wide receiver with Guelph. The other wide receiver on that Guelph team was Steve Hall, a former Ottawa Rough Rider whose son, Taylor, was a first overall NHL Draft pick who now plays for the New Jersey Devils. Darnell Nurse of the Edmonton Oilers is the son of former TigerCat Richard Nurse, and Ryan Reaves of the St. Louis Blues is the son of former Winnipeg Blue Bomber running back Willard Reaves. “It’s nice to see your name in the rankings as a potential draft pick, but it’s something you have to put in the back of your head and focus on producing for your team and make sure you can stay on top of your game,” Serron said. Serron got off to a hot start and recorded his first OHL hat trick this year. He is quick to credit his teammates for his success this year. As for his game, his added size has helped him. He is capable of beating defenders on the rush, and he has good on-ice vision.

noel continues from page 9 “If there is someone who I pattern my game after, it’s Blake Wheeler,” Serron said. “He’s a big power forward who skates well and makes plays and scores goals.” Dean averages a trip to Oshawa each week to see his son play, and he also tries to catch some road games. With Oshawa in Ottawa to play the 67s last weekend, it was a chance for family and friends to come and cheer Serron on. Dean is following his son’s progress closely. “He understands the game and he has speed and great vision on the ice,” he said of his son. “The coaches are putting him in different situations and he is improving in all aspects

of his game.” There was never a question as to whether Serron would follow his footsteps onto the football field. He fell in love with hockey at a young age. “There wasn’t really much of a debate,” Serron said. “I wasn’t really into football that much. Hockey was just always the sport for me. If I did play, maybe I could have been a linebacker.” Dean said that a recent Toronto Star story on Serron that said that Dean pointed his son away from football because of fear of concussions and injuries was not entirely accurate. “What really happened was that he started off in hockey

Dean Noel, pictured on his 1995 JOGO CFL football card, was a star at Laurentian High School and with the Ottawa Bootleggers before moving onto Delaware State and then the CFL.

because a lot of the kids in the neighbourhood were playing hockey,” Dean said of his son. “He just developed and every time you turned around, one thing led to another. He stuck

with it. He plays different sports at school. He never got into football because we didn’t have time, but I’m sure if we had the time he would play all sports like most kids.”

Dean is not at all disappointed that his son never played football. “It’s not about me,” Dean said. “He’s happy. Whatever he decides I just support him. If he played football, he’s

meaner than me, so I would say he would have been a linebacker because he has a linebacker’s mentality.” With files from Mike Carroccetto

Know who to call and when to call in an emergency

There are three key numbers in Ottawa to call for help and information. These numbers may be confusing, especially to newcomers, immigrants and vulnerable seniors. It is important for everyone to know who to call and when to call. For life threatening emergencies including fire, medical or a crime in progress call 9-1-1. If you have questions about services that the City of Ottawa provides including garbage and recycling, recreation programs and your property tax bill to name a few, you would call 3-1-1. If you are looking for information on government and community based health and social services, housing, elder abuse and meals for seniors and people with disabilities, you could call 2-11. If you would like a “Who to Call” Neighbourhood Toolkit fridge magnet, please e-mail: cpo@ottawa.ca.

Pharmacies also received over 118, 300 doses of the vaccine. For the 2017-2018 flu season, OPH will again focus on providing access to the flu vaccine to the general population through physicians’ offices and pharmacy providers, as well as targeted outreach to vulnerable populations. For the upcoming season, 210 Ottawa pharmacies will be offering the influenza vaccine, which is up from 184 pharmacies last year. In addition, more than 300 physicians’ offices across the city will be offering the

Santa Claus is coming to town, with help from Dean Ryans Santa Claus is coming to town, and it’s up to Dean Ryans to get him here. Even if it takes a trip to Scranton, Pennsylvania. “We had to go down there for the reindeer,” said Nick Dean, who along with his partner, Jake Ryan, own and operate Dean Ryans. “We were building the float a few years ago and we had sourced some reindeer, but the deal fell through. We had to find reindeer, and the ones that were available were down in Scranton.” The imported reindeer will make their sixth appearance at this year’s Santa Claus Parade. For Nick Dean, the parade is the highlight of the year in

Barrhaven and has special meaning for the local businessmen. They have deep roots in the community. “We grew up in Barrhaven,” said Dean. “We lived in the original part of Barrhaven and we are part of the first generation of people who were born and raised in Barrhaven and then chose to raise our families in Barrhaven. To us, the Santa Claus Parade brings up back to when we were children growing up in the community.” Dean said that the float was made from hydraulic parts taken from some of their equipment, and that a team of volunteers worked on putting the float together for countless hours to ensure that St. Nick had a

smooth ride when he arrived in Barrhaven. “For us, it’s not about promotion,” he said. “Our logo is on the float, but it’s all covered up with Christmas lights so you can’t see it anyway. The community has supported us, and we have a passion for the community because we grew up here. To us, being a sponsor for the Santa Claus parade is a way for us to give back to the community and to give something special to the children of Barrhaven.” From a business standpoint, Dean Ryans is transitioning from their summer landscaping and masonry business to the snow removal side of the business. While snow removal

in Barrhaven got a bit of a black eye from a scandal involving a rival company two years ago, Dean Ryans has been there to pick up the pieces. Their snow removal prices are competitive but their service is top notch. While some companies are coming in from outside the community to undercut local and established businesses, customers have stayed with or returned to Dean Ryans because of their professionalism, customer service and reliability. “We built our business in Barrhaven to serve our own community,” Dean said. “We have had customers that have been with us for a generation.” Dean said that the

growth of the business has allowed he and Ryan to be more involved in the community. “We don’t have to do everything ourselves anymore,” he said. “We have grown and have some people working for us, and it has freed up some time that allows us to get more involved with the Santa Claus parade and other community initiatives.” The 2017 Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade is on Sat., Nov. 18 at 5:30 p.m. and run west along Strandherd Drive. The parade is becoming one of the largest in the city. “When I was a kid, you had to go downtown for the Santa Claus parade,”

he said. “We have been involved in the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade since the beginning, and it’s amazing how big the parade has become and what a great event it is. It’s truly a great reflection on the community we live in.” Dean reflected on growing up in Barrhaven. “I would have loved to have had a parade like this here when I was a kid,” he said. “When you go along the parade route, you can see it in the faces of the kids. It’s a magical event and seeing the kids really takes you back. “That’s why we put so much hard work into this event. If you’re not in it to cheer to kids, then it’s not worth it.”

DINING OUT

in Rideau Township

Featuring Stress-free holiday hosting tips

G

atherings with friends and family are a big part of the holiday season. Many people travel during the holidays to spend time with distant relatives, but those same people often want to gather with those loved ones who live nearby as well. Thus an abundance of gatherings comes in December, when office parties, dinners with family and festivities with friends have a way of dominating the last five weeks of the year. All of those gatherings translate to a lot of holiday hosting, and hosts can easily feel overwhelmed as they try to juggle hosting duties with everything else that comes along during this time of year. Dining out can help relieve some of

the holiday stress. Dining out has many advantages, including no cleanup once the meal is over and a more varied menu that provides guests more choices than the standard holiday fare. Dining out can also prove less expensive for the holiday host. The tab at the end of a night on the town can be split among the guests, whereas the food bill when hosting a holiday dinner at home is often left to the host and the host alone. • Call around. A favorite restaurant might be tops on your list, but do some comparison shopping before settling on a restaurant. Prices can vary greatly when it comes to private parties, and some might not even be capable of accommodating the kind of

large party that might accompany you for a holiday dinner. • Pick a restaurant that’s accessible to everyone. Guests can stay overnight when a holiday dinner is at a relative’s house. However, guests will almost certainly be driving home after a holiday dinner at a restaurant. Make everyone’s post-meal commute home as easy as possible by choosing a centrally located restaurant that’s equidistant from everyone’s home. • Is the restaurant’s pricing flexibile. There might be room for negotiation regarding the menu, including choices on the food and beverages being offered, but you’ll never know if you don’t ask. Traditional holiday

fare will likely be available, but discuss alternatives to such menu items, including if there is anything for vegetarians or if there is a gluten-free meal option. In addition, some restaurants might be willing to negotiate price, especially for large parties. • Don’t forget invita-

tions. Treat the holiday dinner like you might treat a wedding reception or a birthday party. Include directions to the restaurant in your invitations, and remind guests that holiday traffic might require they leave earlier to make it to the restaurant on time for the start of the meal.

Tomlinson looking forward to becoming first tenant at Citigate Corporate Campus The company that will be Barrhaven’s largest private sector employer will be opening its doors in January, 2018. The Tomlinson Group will be moving into its new headquarters at the new corporate business park on Strandherd Road beside Costco, near Highway 416. “For years, we have been a big part of the Barrhaven community, and now, we are moving to the community,” said Tomlinson Senior VicePresident Paul McCarney. Tomlinson is the first corporation to relocate its headquarters into the new Citigate Corporate Campus business park. “We love the location,” said McCarney. “We love the Citigate Corporate campus. We love its access to Highway 416 and Fallowfield and all kinds of bus transit and soon to be rail transit available.” The corporate campus is something that the Barrhaven BIA has been excited for since its inception several years ago. BIA Executive Director Andrea Steenbakkers and BIA President Jason MacDonald have both spoken extensively on how bringing career level employment to the campus will help solidify Barrhaven as a community. “We will have a full-time staff of 300 people working in our Barrhaven office, and we will have hundreds more field staff visiting it periodically,” said McCarney. “The vast majority of our staff, be it aggregate production, asphalt or ready mix concrete production, field crews or sewer water and municipal roads, commercial parking lots, and our environmental service department – are in the field.” As a company, Tomlinson has served the area since 1952, when Ralph Tomlinson founded R.W. Tomlinson Cartage with one singleaxle dump truck. His son, Bill Tomlinson, worked on weekends and joined him full time in 1962. Along the way, Bill’s younger brother Ken joined in 1964 and the company was incorporated as R.W. Tomlinson Limited in 1969. In 1976 Bill and Ken Tomlinson bought out their father’s interest in the company and ultimately Bill became the sole owner in 1990. Throughout the years, the company expanded its capabilities and completed a number of acquisitions. The company is now a prominent player in quarrying, construction, trucking, ready mix, land development and environmental industries, with a large fleet of company-owned vehicles in Eastern Canada. The Tomlinson Group is now in the hands of the third generation of the Tomlinson family, as Bill’s son Ron Tomlinson

The Tomlinson Group is hoping to be into its new corporate headquarters in Barrhaven in January. On Saturday, they will be a major sponsor of the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade.

oversees the business. Today, Bill Tomlinson, along with his two children, Ron and Cindy, are the sole shareholders of the Tomlinson Group. Tomlinson provides a comprehensive range of products and services in the increasingly technical infrastructure industry. Tomlinson is proud to have obtained International Organization of Standardization (ISO) certification for the supply of concrete, asphalt, aggregates and civil infrastructure construction. They have been a major player in developing Barrhaven at a number of different levels. “Tomlinson is involved in all of the home building and development sites with the likes of Mattamy, Richcraft, Phoenix and EQ Homes,” said McCarney. “We are both customers of those firms, and we are also partners with them on some sites. We are very intertwined with them. We have a great working relationship with the Regional Group, who we were partners with on the Citigate Corporate Campus.” Giving back to the community is a big part of the corporate culture at Tomlinson. This weekend, Tomlinson is a major sponsor of the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade. City wide, the company has donated a million dollars to the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa, and they have committed one million dollars to build and refurbish parks in the city. Over the past three years, Tomlinson has taken part in The Ride, a Mattamy Homessponsored fundraiser for

the Ottawa Hospital. The Tomlinson Team has raised $750,000 over the past three years. There is also a major commitment to the Queensway Carleton Hospital. “On the philanthropic side, we are very well aligned with Mattamy, Richcraft, Phoenix and Regional on community events,” said McCarney. “The Tomlinson shareholders have made a $1 million commitment to working with the city on refurbishing and developing five parks. It’s an ongoing project with the city. The owners of Tomlinson have created a Tomlinson Family Foundation, actively looking at sites and working with the city and looking for the next three park builds.” The Tomlinson initiatives are major, but there are also smaller ones in the community. “Our President and several senior executives played a very active role with the Queensway Carleton Hope’s Rising Campaign,” said McCarney. “We are fully engaged on the mental health initiative. That’s on the big scale. On the small scale, we support some grassroots projects such as the BMX Park in Barrhaven. We reach out and touch many smaller initiatives. Our President, Kevin Cinq-Mars, and our senior executive are fully aligned in giving back to the communities we work in.” The sponsorship of the Santa Claus Parade is an important one for the community. Not only does it give the company a chance to celebrate with the people in the community they helped build, but it is also something that allows its employ-

ees to celebrate together and represent the company in the community. “Tomlinson is a diverse work place, and fun is something we want all our employees to have – both at work and at these community events,” McCarney said. “The employee engagement goes way up when there are fun things to get involved with like the Santa Claus Parade, the BMX sponsorship and the Boys and Girls Club events. Our shareholders fully support the senior executive team in engaging the employees at all levels in these initiatives in events. We really believe it’s a differentiator between Tomlinson and many of our competitors.” McCarney said that the relationships formed by Tomlinson most often grow to a deepened level. “Many of our working relationships evolve into partnerships, which really get heightened into being philanthropic efforts,” he said. “We are a customer of Mattamy, but we really believe in giving back to the community, like Mattamy does, so we end up partnering with them or supporting them on various initiatives. Trinity is another example of that. We like to work for Trinity Developments because John Ruddy is a philanthropist who gives millions of dollars back to the community.” And in January, Tomlinson will form a new and deepened relationship with Barrhaven as it moves to its new headquarters. That relationship will begin with the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade Saturday.

Tomlinson becomes official environmental services partner of the Ottawa Senators Tomlinson Group is excited to announce its new partnership with the Ottawa Senators. Tomlinson will be working closely with the Sens team to develop innovative and clean processes to provide waste management as well as recycling solutions. As Terry Thompson, Manager Environmental Sales, says, “Tomlinson Environmental Services is thrilled to be the official Environmental Services Partner for the Ottawa Senators. The new Partnership is reflective of the growth and evolution of a relationship which has spanned over 25 years. “Providing our environmental services is a natural progression and builds on Tomlinson’s involvement in the infrastructure of the Canadian Tire Centre and development of the Sensplex properties,” says Paul McCarney, Senior Vice-President of Tomlinson. “We value the benefits of long-term business relationships which develop into partnerships that build on the strengths of each partner,” explains Kevin Cinq-Mars, Tomlinson President. “This new partnership will enhance the synergies that exist between the Ottawa Senators organization and Tomlinson,” said Kevin Cinq-Mars, President of Tomlinson. “Both organizations also share a role as community leaders, actively involved in the Ottawa community and supporting many local charities.”

The IndependentCOMMUNITY

Carleton Ravens football team hosts blood donor clinic Nov. 28 By Brandi Awad The Carleton Ravens football team is holding their first-annual blood drive at the end of the month on Tuesday, Nov. 28. – the international day of giving. In past years, the Ravens have participated in various on-campus blood drives, but this is the first time they’ve adopted the project as their own. A number of Barrhaven volunteers and donors will be

taking part in the event. “It’s exciting for us as a program because it’s a way that we can give back to the community,” head coach Steve Sumarah said. “Our players will be participating and giving blood, we’ve reached out to parents, local businesses, alumni, people on campus and I just think it’s in it to give – giving blood truly does have that ability.” Having that ability is right, as the need for blood donors across the nation is

rising. According to Mary Ann St. Michael, the territory manager of Canadian Blood Services in Ottawa, the need for blood is constant. “Here in Canada, every minute of everyday someone needs blood and in most cases, that’s from more than just one blood donor,” she said. “We need about 100, 000 new donors every year in order to sustain our system across the country.”

Blood drives, like the clinic being hosted by the Ravens, are vitally important in ensuring that there is enough blood for patients in need. It’s also a great way to gain new donors. “Less than four per cent of people in Canada who are eligible to give blood actually do,” St. Michael continued. “Right now, we need new, young donors and we’re really working on that, but when you have the ‘cool guys’ – like

the ones on the football team – going out and asking people to give blood, it doesn’t get any better than that for us. It’s a huge win and it’s exactly what we’re trying to do as an organization. We love our current blood donors, but we definitely need new donors in the blood donation process.” The blood drive will take place from 12:30-6:30 p.m. in the university’s athletic centre with free parking on-site for all donors.

Canadian Blood Services said they’re hoping to yield at least 86 units of blood from 86 people at this clinic – which can touch up to 250 lives. When someone donates blood, its separated into three different components: red blood cells, plasma and platelets, meaning that one blood donation can be used for three different patients. Though, it has the power to do much more than that.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Barrhaven BIA hosting Breakfast with Santa Saturday morning What a great turnout we had at Barrhaven’s Remembrance Day service last Saturday. As always, the Legion hosted the event at John McCrae High School at the Walter Baker Sports Centre. It was different indeed without the population of the school joining the community. The students held their ceremony on Friday November 10th. I look forward to seeing families at Barrhaven’s Business Communities Santa breakfast and of course the Barrhaven BIA’s excellent Santa float. I’ll be riding on the City of Ottawa float which I think is #5 in the lineup. I gave my fingers crossed for good weather. See you soon!

We’re planning now to meet your future electricity needs To ensure South Nepean has the power to grow, Hydro Ottawa Limited (Hydro Ottawa) and Hydro One Networks Inc. (Hydro One) have initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for new electricity transmission facilities in the area. The Power South Nepean project proposes: • a new municipal transformer station (MTS) within the study area shown on the map; and • rebuilding an existing 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission line to a new double circuit line with 230 kV capacity. This line would connect the new MTS to the 230 kV line south of West Hunt Club Road. The transmission line rebuild would require replacing the existing transmission structures and widening of the corridor in certain locations. Planning and approvals This project is being planned in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment for Minor Transmission Facilities, under Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act. The Class EA is a

streamlined process to ensure that minor transmission facility projects with a predictable range of effects are planned and carried out in an efficient and environmentally-acceptable manner. The proposed project is also subject to federal approval under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. Contingent on the completion of the Class EA process and other approvals, construction of these new facilities could begin in 2020. We look forward to speaking with you Consultation is an important part of the Class EA process. Members of the public, businesses, stakeholder groups, Indigenous communities, government agencies and other interested parties are encouraged to participate.

blood continues from page 16 year, long snapper Ryan Kublek. “I think any opportunity to give back to the community is a great opportunity,” he said. “Blood effects everyone and it effects everyone differently. There’s always going to be situations where people need blood and if we can help save a life then I think that’s a great cause to be apart of.” Kublek added: “We’re pretty privileged here at Carleton with all of our

support, so if we can give back I think it’s a way of showing respect to all of the Old Crows and the community for all that they’ve given to us.” Currently, the clinic has 60 donors registered and there is still plenty of room for more. To signup, you can go to blood. ca, call 1-888-2 DONATE, or go to Carleton University Athletics. They will also be accepting walkins on the day of the event.

According to Canadian Blood Services’ statistics, it takes five donors to help a patient with one cancer treatment and it can take up to 50 donors to help a car crash victim. The goal of the Ravens’ clinic is 86, but they will be taking up to 138 donors on Giving Tuesday. If they reach that number, the blood donated that day will help over 400 patients in need.
