Police rule out foul play in death of 13-year-old boy By Charlie Senack The body of a missing 13-year-old boy has been found, according to police. On the evening of Saturday, October 26 , the Ottawa Police Duty Inspectors tweeted out the news saying “there will be no further information provided at the request of the family.” Alexandre Baron, a grade 9 student who attended St Francis Xavier High School in Riverside South, went missing on the afternoon of Oct. 22, after leaving his home in the south end of the city. Baron’s mother told the Ottawa Citizen that he left after the two got into a verbal argument over him wanting to hangout with friends on a school night. Soon after Baron disappeared, family members said the missing teen had never run away from home before, and seemed com-

pletely normal when leaving his Riverside South high school that afternoon. He left his home Tuesday afternoon at around 2:50 pm without any money or a bus pass — but did have a cell phone which died after pinging off a nearby cellphone tower at around 3:00 pm the same day — ten minutes after last being seen. Friends, family, and total strangers were out looking for Baron since he first disappeared, forming a line through Blossom Park Forest on Thursday. Posters were plastered all around the city in hopes someone would recognize him. At the time his family said they would have many “sleepless nights” until he returned home, and hoped he would soon walk through the front door. Late Saturday evening, police said they found a body in the south end of the

city, but wouldn’t give any specifics as to the location. It is unclear whether or not this is the location where Baron’s body was found. Frontline Platoon Inspector Francois D’Aaoust said on Twitter, “Investigators and crisis counsellors have met with family and request privacy during difficult time.” In a message sent to parents in the St Francis Xavier High School community following the news of Baron’s death, Principal Sean Kelly said it was a “devastating loss” to those who knew him. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Alexandre’s family, and we wish them peace in the difficult days ahead,” he said. The Ottawa Catholic School Board said they would be offering support to students who needed it. Police say foul play is not suspected.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY

Council must take a critical look at where taxpayers’ money goes First off, I want to thank everyone who came out to my budget consultation with Councillors Harder and Egli on Monday October 28th. I was fortunate to host two budget consultations for Ward 22 this year. If you were not able to make either, please reach out to me directly to provide your input. Collecting feedback from my residents that I am directly accountable to is a very important part of the work I do. Your thoughts, ideas and suggestions are valuable; you are the one footing the bill, so please tell me what you think about the City’s budget. I am taking all of the feedback I have heard to City Staff. The 2020 draft budget calls for a 3 percent property tax hike overall, along with 6.4 percent more on the transit levy, higher fare increases, garbage, water,

wastewater and stormwater fees all higher. That’s without really taking a look at what we as a city could do without, what programs might no longer be needed. I’ve only been on council a year, but I am well aware there are so-called “untouchable” programs that the city funds annually. Just talking about cutting or freezing funding is considered a career killer. But I firmly believe nothing should be off-limits. Let’s consider a few items that we should at least be examining. Ottawa allocates 10 million dollars on cultural and

arts programs. Don’t get me wrong; I love the arts; we are a better city because of our investment. But we also have thousands of families waiting for affordable housing, new immigrants, many with young children are being squeezed into motel rooms. They are suffering socially, physically and mentally. In my world we would at least consider allocating the ten million in cultural funding to housing, at least for one year. It would alleviate the insufferable backlog many residents find themselves in. Residents in Barrhaven and across Ottawa are finding the post LRT transit system lacking in service reliability. Councillors should be looking for any extra funding options that would keep fares prices low while increasing bus service levels.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Barrhaven United Church celebrating 40th anniversary Nov. 2-3

Wow, 40 years already! It is hard to believe the Barrhaven United Church has been in our community for four decades. They will be celebrating their milestone with a dinner on Saturday, November 2, and a special worship ceremony starting at 10 am on Sunday, November 3. Last week Mayor Watson and I attended the 40th celebration of Barrhaven Optometric Services. Barrhaven is older than we think! It was within the last year we were surprised to hear that Pete & Gus Meat Market was also having a 40th party. Last week I took my granddaughter to her singing classes at Nepean School of Music and recalled 3 of my girls went to Nepean School of Music also at the Barrhaven Mall decades ago! This will be the first time I will miss Barrhaven’s Remembrance Day service at John McCrae High School. Larry and I are heading out of town for a few days. I hope you will join our Branch #641 Legion and the students from JMSS. This will be the first year we will miss our dear comrade Ray Desjardins, Chaplain and Friend.

students being enrolled. To help support the large population, in 2013 it was announced that the school would undergo a 15.2-million-dollar expansion. The school’s grade 12 leadership class is putting on several events between now and the end of the school year, including a family fun day to make their 10-year milestone. The day will feature a variety of carnival games, food, and more, alongside musical performances by the school’s bands. They are also hoping to have exhibition soccer and/or football games -- possibly involving alumni vs staff. The event will take place between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., on November 2nd.

Community Police Message

Winter is around the corner so it’s important to remember how to stay safe when around open bodies of water. When water begins to freeze on rivers, lakes, the Rideau Canal and other open bodies of water, it may look solid but is often still dangerous. If you want to go out onto the ice, remember the thickness should be: - 15 cm for walking or skating alone - 20 cm for skating parties or games - 25 cm for snowmobiles - 35 cm for fishing huts As a guideline, clear blue ice is usually the strongest; white opaque or snow ice is half as strong as blue ice. Grey ice is unsafe. The greyness indicates the presence of water. Before venturing onto the ice, check the Lifesaving Society’s guidelines for staying safe, and review guidelines by The Canadian Red Cross on what to do if you get into trouble on the ice. When in doubt, simply stay away from the ice, period.

Barrhaven residents honoured at the Ottawa Volunteer Service Awards By Charlie Senack

Even small actions can lead to everlasting impacts. Some of the people who make that happen were celebrated during Ottawa’s Volunteer Service Awards on October 16 — just one of many volunteer awards put on by the Ontario government across the province this month. It featured people from all ends of the city, including girl guide leaders, disaster relief responders who were dispatched after this year’s record floods, and just ordinary people who are making a difference in our society. Many of the people who were recognized were from Nepean, including multiple representatives from the Barrhaven Legion. “The Barrhaven Legion is the newest legion in the county and it has one of the largest memberships in the entire nation because of their commitment to our veterans and to those who have served and continue to serve in our military,” said Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod, who

is also the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. Lynne Carson from Nepean Housing was also recognized for her vision of inclusionary housing. It was an effort she started way before it was a popular term, and is a topic she understands. Inclusionary housing programs are local policies that tap the economic gains from rising real estate values to create affordable housing for lower income families, according to inclusionary housing.org. An inclusionary housing program might require developers to sell or rent 10 to 30 percent of new residential units to lowerincome residents. But one of the youngest nominees to be recognized was 19-year-old Barrhaven resident Sarah Ham, who has been volunteering with the Ruth E Dickinson branch of the Ottawa Library. She fell in love with reading and books at a young age after countless trips to the library, and is now a second year student at Carleton University studying English and History. She inspires to be a writer, and hopes

that will one day be possible after graduating from school. “I have been volunteering with the Ottawa Public Library with the Ruth E. Dickinson branch for I think four years — all of my high school career,” she said. “I was with the teen advisory group which is a group that helps promote activities for teens at the library as well as generally participating in our community events.” But this is not the first time Ham has been recognized for her acts of volunteerism.

11-year-old girls true community heroes

Every now and then, something happens in Barrhaven that reassures our faith in people, and faith in our community. Juliet Murphy and Darcy Power, two 11-year-old girls who play hockey in the Nepean Wildcats program, have been celebrated by the community as local heroes for the past week. Their quick actions helped save a man’s life. The girls went on a bike ride to Furness Park in Barrhaven when they noticed a man slumped over near the sidewalk. They went over to check on him and saw that he was unconscious and in need of help. Powers stayed with the man while Murphy raced from door to door, ringing doorbells. No one answered their door, but Murphy saw some men working on a car. They pleaded with the men to call 911. Although the men did not believe the girls at first, they called 911, and then went over and administered CPR on the unconscious man. Paramedics soon arrived with a defibrillator to start the man’s heart. The man, in his 60s, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Ottawa Paramedics credited the girls with taking fast action and starting a chain of events that can save the life of a person in need. At the scene, they did not get the names of the girls, and they launched a public campaign to find out who the young Barrhaven heroes were. Marc-Antoine Deschamps of the Ottawa Paramedic Service presented the girls with a gift for their bravery. If the story is not heartwarming enough, the bond that this act will give the girls only adds to their already deep friendship. The girls were born on the same day and in the same hospital. Their fathers also grew up together. It was inevitable that they would become best friends for life. The girls were hesitant to approach the fallen man at first and wanted to make sure he was not faking something so he could lure and grab kids. You can’t blame them. The girls were smart to be aware of potential safety risks, but it is, at the same time, a sad statement on where we are as a society. And how many people were home and heard their doorbell, but saw that it was kids they did not know and opted not to answer the door? All of these things add up to tell us we live in different times now – times of closed doors, barriers and suspicion. But isn’t it nice that two 11-year-old girls would fight through those obstacles and show us being part of a community truly means. Well done, girls! We are all proud of you! BARRHAVEN

The IndependentFOCUS ON YOUTH St. Joe co-pres. says getting involved gives sense of belonging

Name: Sasha Rogers Age: 16 Address: Barrhaven School: St. Joseph High Grade: 12 Parents: Suzanne & Dean Sister: Elyse (18), Carleton University Pet Peeves: “Definitely slow walkers in the hallway, and people who interrupt others in conversation.” Part-time Work: “I have worked at Montana’s Barrhaven as a host since fall 2018.” Favourite Subjects: “My favourite subjects are, firstly Business course as I’m very interested in a career in business. I would love to learn how a business works and becomes successful. Secondly, I love my Communication Technology (Commtech) class as I get to be creative and film and edit fun and impactful videos. My teacher Mr. Lever, has


YOUTH by Phill Potter

given me great opportunities to expand on this passion of mine, including sending myself and a close friend to the Skills Ontario Regional and Provincial competitions for video producing where we came 1st and 9th. Thirdly, I enjoy Math as I consider myself a very logical thinker. I love the feeling of solving a tough problem after hard work.” What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? “I am not an avid fiction reader, but I do enjoy reading non-fiction articles and the occasional magazine. I enjoy learning more about real world issues, but will often opt for an interesting podcast or video over a book.”

What is your Greatest Accomplishment? “One of my greatest accomplishments is being elected as my school’s Student Council Co-President. Throughout my years on student council and through campaign week I dreamt of holding this position, and worked very hard to achieve it. It’s an honour to represent my school and its students within the board, and to make decisions on their behalf to make the school a better place. Another accomplishment I am proud of, is being selected to represent the Nepean-Carleton riding in the 2018 Model Parliament Program at Queen’s Park. Within this program I created a mock bill to diminish the “pink tax” and ensure substantially similar personal care products were priced the same no matter which gender it was marketed towards. I felt very proud of myself as I gave the closing speech in Queen’s Park, about an issue

I care deeply about, and am very thankful for that experience.” Activities/Interests: “My main interests include business, politics and debate, and video production. These tie into my extracurriculars as I love to be a part of Student Council, the Business Club, the Quilts for Cancer Club, and last year I helped cofound the Debate Club.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I chose to get involved within my school and community from a young age as I always felt extracurriculars gave me a sense of belonging and enjoyment. I was always encouraged by my parents to get involved from a young age, and found that I met many friends and found joy in doing so. Specifically, Student Council has always been a favourite activity of mine. I found it gave me the opportunity to change the school community for the better, while making tons of friends.

I feel getting involved is a crucial thing to do in high school. It gives you a sense of belonging and something to look forward to, while unknowingly shaping you into a better leader and collaborator, and providing you with an outlet for your passions.” Career Goals: “I hope to pursue a career in business, specifically in the marketing field. I plan to apply to Ottawa , Carleton, and Queen’s University for a Bachelor in Commerce. I would love to eventually find a job in this field that allows me to use my creativity and passion for video production, while making a change in the world.” Comment: “I would like to thank my parents for all the continuous support and for instilling hard work, perseverance, and kindness in me. Also I am very grateful for every teacher who has believed in me over the years at St. Joseph High School, specifically Meaghan Bennett and

Brian Lever. These people and more, have shaped me into the person I am today. As I grow, and hope to find success in the future, their teachings will always remain by my side. Lastly, I encourage every young person to find their passion and pursue it by getting involved in your school or your community. GO JAGS GO!”

Royal Canadian Legion Branch 641 Barrhaven – 2019 Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Events The Poppy has been widely recognized as a symbol of Remembrance since it was first adopted in 1921. By wearing the Poppy, we demonstrate our gratitude to those who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy. Legion Remembrance programs commemorate the men and women who died in the military service of Canada during war and peace. The 2019 Poppy Campaign commences October 26 and ends on November 10. It is through the generosity of the community that Branch 641 is able to provide this kind of support. Legion and Cadet volunteers will be distributing poppies during the Campaign period at several local locations, including Ross’ Independent, Sobeys, Walmart, Metro, Loblaws and Costco. We thank you for your continued support.

POPPY CAMPAIGN It is important to remember that the basic purpose of funds raised during the Poppy Campaign is to enable Branches of the Royal Canadian Legion to provide immediate assistance to ex-servicemen and women in need. This includes providing food, shelter and medical attention for them or their families when necessary. Poppy funds also allow the Legion to “give back” to the local community in the form of bursaries to local schools, support of cadet corps, donations to local hospitals and other vital support programs. During the past year, Branch 641 donated $52,000 to community organizations including the Ottawa Heart institute, Rideau Perley Veterans Health Centre, Queensway Carleton Hospital, four Cadet Corps, Military Family Resource Centre, Operation: Leave the Streets Behind, bursaries to local students as well as monetary prizes for poster and literary contests for youth attending local schools. For more information about the Barrhaven Legion, please go to our website, www.rcl641.ca, our Facebook page “Barrhaven Legion 641” or call us at 613843-8691.

The Branch will be holding a Remembrance Dinner on Saturday, November 9. All are welcome to join in honouring our military, past, present and future, at this evening of recognition and reflection.

Tickets must be purchased in advance at the Branch.

Form-up begins at 10:30 a.m. Following the ceremony, the Barrhaven Legion will be hosting a reception in Halls A and B of the Walter Baker Centre. Everyone is welcome.

Lest We Forget

Why the poppy? The poppy has stood as the official symbol of Canada’s Remembrance Day since 1921, a visual reminder of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for war. Some may wonder why this small flower is used to represent the fallen s oldier. Poppies and fallen soldiers have a long history together. The origins of the flower can be traced back to the Napoleonic wars in France. During these times of unrest and battle, many soldiers went on to final resting places in graves in Flanders, France. Ensuing literature describing how poppies grew so thickly and vibrantly over these graves, in soil that once could not produce much vegetation. Years later, a soldier would be instrumental in bringing the symbol of the poppy to the hearts and minds of Canadians. When John McCrae served

in World War I as a Lieutenant-Colonel, he was stationed near Ypres, Belgium, the area traditionally called Flanders. McCrae observed how poppies grew so well among the makeshift graves of the soldiers, which were marked by wooden crosses. When McCrae lost a fellow soldier and close friend, he penned a poem called “In Flanders Fields” and portrayed the picture of war and the poppy flower visual. To this day McCrae’s poem remains among the most memorable war poems ever written. It also paved the way for the poppy flower to be one of the most recognized symbols of wartime remembrance. Thousands of poppies are placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and Remembrance Day participants wear poppies on their lapels.

In Flanders Fields In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. ‘In Flander’s Fields’ was written by a Canadian, John McCrae, a doctor and teacher who served in both the South African War and the First World War. He died from pneumonia on January 28, 1918.

3 Great Ways to Grow YOUR Money

Have your say in the City’s 2020 Budget

By Jim Watson Ottawa Mayor

Last year, we worked with our City departments and staff and listened to residents through the budget consultation process in order to deliver a budget that keeps the City on a path of fiscal prudence while continuing to build a caring, sustainable, and prosperous city. We were able to accomplish this while keeping a cap on taxes, thus ensuring that Ottawa remains an affordable city for all. To shed light on the budget process and how these decisions impact your individual property taxes, the City of Ottawa has developed innovative tools available in the Understanding Your City Budget section of the Budget webpage: https://ottawa.ca/

en/city-hall/budget. The tools include: How the City Budget Works: A short video that uses plain language and easyto- understand graphics that outline the basics of how the City budget works. Get Involved in the Budget Process - The City of Ottawa’s Budget Process Made Simple: A printable info-graphic that describes the budget and consultation process and highlights when and how residents can have their say. City of Ottawa Budget Allocation Tool: An interactive online tool that provides you with the opportunity to play the role of politician or administrator and determine what areas of City services and programs require increases, decreases or status

quo funding, and gives you the opportunity to provide comments. To show the impact of your decisions, the tool will also show how your changes will affect the budget rate and your individual property taxes. The tool can be accessed at: https://engage. ottawa.ca/draft-budget-2020/ news_feed/draft-budget-allocation-2020 These budget tools will help you better understand how your tax dollars are spent. In addition to the online budget tools, residents may also offer budget input before it is tabled on November 6, 2019, by sending an email directly to budget@ottawa. ca, by contacting your City Councillor or by tweeting @ ottawacity using the hashtag #ottbudget.
