$6 million Jockvale pathway underpass to improve public safety By Charlie Senack A handful of Barrhaven residents attended a public meeting at Walter Baker Centre on May 6, to give feedback and share their concerns about a proposed grade separated multi-use pathway crossing under the VIA Rail tracks at Jockvale Road. The purpose of building this roughly six million dollar underpass is to help eliminate safety risks on the bike path that has seen increased use from bikers and runners. Multiple options were looked at, but Frank McKinney, Program Manager and Transportation Environmental Assessments for the City of Ottawa, said the decided plan was the most cost efficient

and safe option that was brought to the table. “We looked at a couple of options with respect to grade separation,” McKinney said. “We actually looked at the idea of an overpass which became very costly (and) required a lot of right of way to build something like that.” “We came up with the bridge option because Via Rail now has more traffic on that line and there is less time in between to shutdown (the track) in order to build the underpass,” he added.

The Do’s & Don’ts of Hearing Healthcare For several years, May has brought Hearing Health to the National forefront. Untreated hearing loss is linked to an increase of dementia, depression, anxiety, falls, social isolation and more. Early intervention for even the slightest hearing loss is crucial to your overall health. Here are a few do’s & don’ts to help you navigate the hearing healthcare terrain in your journey towards better hearing and ultimately better overall health and quality of life. DO Consult an Audiologist. Much like you would consult a Dentist for a sore tooth or an Optometrist for blurred vision, the Audiologist is the Healthcare professional to consult when hearing concerns arise. Audiologists have a Masters or Doctorate level of education and are regulated by the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario. Consequently, they are quality assured and accountable.

They are the most qualified to assess your hearing abilities and discuss what the next step should be, whether that is treatment through medical intervention or rehabilitation through the use of hearing devices. A physician’s referral is not required to be assessed by an Audiologist. DON’T Limit your potential of success. Because hearing is highly individualized, the hearing device that works for one, will not necessarily work for another. With nearly a dozen Manufactures offering different products, you deserve the one amongst them that suits you best. To achieve this, look for an independent clinic with no product limitations. Many locations today are either manufacturer owned or carry a limited number of manufacturers, so all patients are prescribed the same product line despite their unique set of hearing needs and wants. A limitation to one or a few product lines may mean you will unknowingly settle for a

product sub-optimal for you. DO Make sure your initial assessment is thorough. Get confirmation that your ear canals are free of earwax. Look for an Audiologist that will assess the physical functioning of your eardrum as well as your ability to hear sounds and words in quiet, but also in noise. Look to have a comparison between your abilities with one ear versus two. Have your sensitivity to loudness assessed. It is crucial that the initial assessment be very detailed because that assessment is the foundation for everything else thereafter. Such an assessment will generally require a 1.5 hour consult. DON’T Get discouraged. Learning to hear again takes time. Your brain cannot relearn to hear overnight. Be patient and persistent, especially in those first weeks when your voice sounds awfully strange and the noises seem so intrusive. This is normal. The dust will settle…but only if you wear your new

devices consistently. DO Understand your device. The performance can greatly vary from one product to another. Have your Audiologist explain to you what you are, and aren’t, getting. Understand how your selected technology will treat the environment. The more you understand how your product will react to the environment, the better you can work with it, giving you greater success and satisfaction. Make sure the trial time and service plan is generous because achieving this can take time for some. Hearing is complex, and so are today’s hearing devices. Finding the right solution is not a simple process. Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting and getting a customized solution is essential. With these guidelines, success is on your horizon! For more information visit www.HearingFreedom.com

pathway continues from page 2 Between the last train at night and the first train in the morning, crews would only have about seven hours to do any work on the track. The bridge will be constructed beforehand, and will then be placed in a hole that will be dug out under the tracks. But not everyone is in support of the project. A few residents at the meeting felt the money would be better spent on other road infrastructure projects such as the Greenbank Road realignment or adding another exit off of Highway 416. Other residents would have liked to see a crossing on Jockvale Road north of the VIA Rail tracks — in order to provide connectivity to the United Church and to the Barrhaven NonProfit Housing — but city officials noted that was being reviewed by Traffic Management Branch as a separate project. McKinney also adds that this crossing will be unlike any of the other concrete underpasses that are in place on other parts of the train track, and said it will be a safer option — especially for when it’s late at night.

“This is much safer because it’s a wider space… so people can see on either side of the tunnel who is coming and going,” he said, adding that the underpass would be well lit at night, and would be maintained during the winter.

It is unclear when shovels will be in the ground for this project, but it won’t be anytime soon. It will now go on the city’s consideration list for future mobility and transportation projects — but McKinney suggests it will be a priority.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Longfields Davidson Heights robotics team earns provincial success By Charlie Senack

Students from Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School robotics club brought home some hardware after competing in multiple competitions across the province. The “RoboRavens” as they are called, is a group of students that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math — also known as STEM. For the past seven years the team has been participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), where in just six weeks they have to design, manufacture and program a robot to compete at regional, provincial and international events. During the first event that was held in Durham, Ontario between March 1-3, the team was so successful with their speedy and efficient defense, they went on to the championships where they competed against the 610 Crescent Coyotes, and won — bringing home Ottawa’s first blue banner. They then went off to the North Bay District

Championships at the end of the month for a play-off match, where they won the Spirit Award, accumulating enough points to compete in Mississauga at the FRC Ontario District Championships for the first time. But that trip came with some unexpected costs, and in only two weeks, they had to find ways to come up with the money. “We worked hard during the qualification matches and came out with a record of 7-5-0 which ranked us 7 out of 40 teams in the Science Division,” said Esha Tapadar, a grade 10 student who has been a member of the team for the past two years. “In the end, we ranked 37 out of the 179 teams in Ontario — narrowly missing the qualification requirement to compete at the FIRST Championship in Detroit at the end of the month,” she added. They came home from the Durham District completion as the event winner, but had the most success in North Bay where they were a semi-finalist and won the team spirit award. It was

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Lions Club making a difference with eyeglass collection program This is the first of a planned number of articles which are being prepared to advise our own Barrhaven Community of the work and accomplishments of the Barrhaven Lions Club since its formation back in 1980. This article is focused upon the Lions Recycling Eyeglass Program and its positive impact on the impoverished people of the world. Back in 2001 the Barrhaven Lions Club under the chairmanship of the late Lion Ray Trudel, started a program within the club for the collection of used eye glasses. This, over the years, has benefited thousands of people living in under-developed countries. Lion Ray personally made a number of Lion organized trips to the Caribbean with both professional and volunteer eye care teams with used eye glasses bringing improved sight to hundreds of recipients. We are certain that many of you have noticed the eyeglass recycling collection containers located in a number of locations throughout the Barrhaven and greater Nepean areas so the purpose of this article is to advise what the lions do with these glasses and where they are sent and

the difference they make to so many lives. This club program is presently organized by Lion Ross Baldwin and he arranges for the collection of the used eye glasses which now amounts to over 22,000 pairs per year and this year 700 pairs have been cleaned, sorted and shipped free of charge directly with the eye care teams to such locations as the Leogane and Darbonne areas of Haiti. At last count over 2,000 people suffering

with reduced vision have realized a far higher quality of life with improved eyesight at these locations. Lion Ross also oversees the Lions District eyeglass collection program and in addition to the majority of glasses collected from the local areas he receives eyeglass donations from the other 67 clubs within District A4. This amounts to up to 80,000 collected annually with the majority of these being packed and shipped to the Canadian

Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre located in Alberta. From here these are shipped to under-developed countries throughout the world and are provided to improve the eyesight of visually impaired people who neither have the means nor the resources to acquire eye glasses. The individual stories from these locations where people can start to live a near normal life are truly inspiring. The Barrhaven Lions Club is extremely proud

to continue the legacy of Helen Keller and act as her Knights for the Blind when she challenged the Lions back in 1925. With the ongoing support from the community we can continue to “Make a Difference” in the world. Coming up On Saturday morning, May 4th the Barrhaven Lions Club hosted its 34th annual Pancake Breakfast at Fire Station #47 located at 3559 Greenbank Road

(next to Minto Sportsplex). The community enjoyed pancakes, sausages, eggs, beans and a whole bunch of family fun with a puppet show by Rock the Arts, face painting, the balloon man, they met out our fire fighters, took tours of the fire station and fire trucks and much more. Donations were accepted for QuickStart Autism. For more information contact Lion Dave Voisey 613 825-4371.

How high taxes create crime and hurt society Troy Media – In The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith described a smuggler as “a person who, though no doubt highly blameable for violating the laws of his country, is frequently incapable of violating those of natural justice, and would have been, in every respect, an excellent citizen, had not the laws of his country made that a crime which nature never meant to be so.” The context of this quotation was that excessive taxes on certain goods often encourage the smuggling of these goods in the hope of evading the taxes. The creation of criminals and a black market – as well as the wasted labour of the people doing the smuggling rather than performing some more productive economic activity – are some of the often-ignored costs of excessive taxes on certain goods. In Canada, an excellent illustration of this was provided in 2012 in the Niagara Region in southern Ontario. Due to Canada’s supply management system that levies tariffs of up to 300 per cent on dairy products, the price of cheese in the United States is around one-third of the Canadian price. So several individuals (including a police officer) bought around $200,000 worth of cheese in the United States and smuggled it into Canada, selling it for a tidy profit to pizzerias and restaurants. Excessive taxes that encourage smuggling and black market activity are a significant policy issue in Canada. When marijuana was legalized last year, a major concern was that if legal marijuana is too heavily taxed, consumers would be driven away from legal producers and to the black market. And then there are cigarettes. A study released in 2017 by the Ontario Convenience Stores Association found that 37 per cent of cigarettes smoked in the province were illegal. As the association described, “repeated government tax hikes mean the retail price gap between legal tobacco and contraband tobacco continues to widen, making illegal cigarettes financially more attractive.” This unfairly penalizes legal retailers. Moreover, high cigarette taxes may not benefit even non-smoking taxpayers. Just as raising income tax rates doesn’t necessarily yield higher income tax revenues if people find legal or illegal ways to avoid these taxes, raising cigarette tax rates doesn’t necessarily help fill government coffers if those taxes simply drive smokers towards illegal cigarettes. Private economic resources are wasted, too. A large black market – in cheese, marijuana, cigarettes or anything else – means labour is consumed by smuggling activities, and individuals who have capacity for productive work instead head down the unhappy road, as Smith described, of becoming hardened lawbreakers. Such are the unintended consequences of charging excessive tax rates on certain goods. Matthew Lau is a research associate with the Frontier Centre for Public Policy. JM BARRHAVEN

You stay classy, San Jose It’s a disgusting ritual that we have to get grossed out by every spring. In fact, Brent Burns and Joe Thornton gross us out year round. For those of you that are still paying attention to the long and seemingly never-ending hockey playoffs, you will see that the beards have become shaggy and nasty and enough to make you itchy just by looking at them. The San Jose Sharks look more like the San Jose Chewbaccas. Every time I see Thornton, Burns, or that guy in the nasty beard in the Frosted Flakes commercial, I think back to a report came out of Albuquerque a few years ago. The report determined that beards contain more bacteria than a toilet. The beards they tested were normal beards, not the smelly, sweaty beards that are rubbed by sweaty and nasty chin straps. The KOAT Action 7 News Team – I don’t know about you but I have an image of Ron Burgundy, Veronica Corningstone, Brick, Champ and Brian – swabbed the beards of a few volunteers and then had Quest Diagnostics microbiologist John Golobic test the swabs. “I’m usually not surprised and I was surprised by this,” Golobic told Action 7, saying that some of the bacteria contained into the beards was normal, but that others were comparable to toilets. “Those are the types of things you’d find in (fecal matter)…. There would be a degree of uncleanliness that would be somewhat disturbing.” Many media outlets have refuted the report. Who would think that the Action 7 News Team could possibly sensationalize a story like this? Sure enough, it went viral. The Mirror in the U.K. ran a feature on “poo beards” that contain more poo than a toilet. Australia’s news.com.au reported that shocking news has revealed that some beards contain more poo than a toilet. Suddenly, “poo beard” was a brand new term that had worked its way into the lexicon of our pop culture. But the microbiologists in New Mexico never claimed there was actual poo in beards. Some of the bacteria found in beards is similar to some of the bacteria found in intestines and feces. But that’s it. The poo beard is nothing more than a myth. But poo beards or not, the trending topic makes you wonder how and why this tradition of playoff beards even exists. Bjorn Borg, the shaggy Swede who dominated tennis in the late 1970s and early

1980s, would not shave during Wimbledon. By the end of the tournament, Borg’s beard was long and thick enough to hide lingonberries, Allen keys, Abba cassettes, or whatever else a Swedish superstar from that era may wish to hide. The New York Islanders were credited as the first hockey team to grow playoff beards, but FROM THE Denis Potvin told us a couple of years ago when he was a Senators’ TV analyst that the tradition “just sort of happened” due to a playoff schedby Jeff Morris ule that would see his team play night games followed by day games and often four games in five days. There just wasn’t any time to shave. Eventually, more and more teams adopted the tradition under the pretense that the beards are lucky. No one in hockey world has figured out that if 16 teams make the playoffs and they all grow beards, then they can’t be lucky because 15 out of 16 bearded teams will go home without Stanley Cup rings. There are other superstitions and traditions involving more than beards in hockey. In the Conference Finals, neither captain will touch the trophy presented to them. It is widely believed in hockey that it is a bad omen to touch a trophy while on the path to the Stanley Cup. Each city also has its own traditions. In Detroit, for example, fans will throw an octopus on the ice as a symbol of playoff support for the Red Wings. I saw this live while in Detroit for the finals in 2008. The tradition started in the 1950s, when there were only two rounds in the NHL playoffs. The Wings were the first team to sweep both rounds and win the Cup in only eight playoff games. Someone equated the number eight with an octopus, and heaved it on the ice. The media room was on the arena level and just off the Zamboni entrance during the finals that year, and I watched the Zamboni driver go out and pick up the octopus thrown on the ice before the game and wave it around like a towel, above his head, to excite the crowd. It was then thrown into a bin. I went to look at it. It was gross, and it stunk. Maybe playoff beards aren’t all that bad after all. I was thinking about all of this stuff as I got out of the shower and watched the NHL highlights on SportsCentre. I realized that summer was upon us, and soon it would be time for the painful annual ritual of the preswimming season back waxing. I wonder if the Action 7 news team has ever thought of analyzing the poo back.

Custom-built decks can expand usable outdoor entertaining spaces. Decks can surround pools and create outdoor patio areas that make it easy to establish multitiered living spaces, improving the functionality of outdoor areas. Certain deck trends have emerged as industry experts’ top picks for the upcoming remodeling and renovation season. For those thinking of revamping an existing deck, or building an entirely new one, these trends are on point.

Emerging deck trends Here’s tHe smart,

· Established perimeters: “Picture framing” is not a new trend, but one that has taken greater hold in recent years. The term refers to aesthetically appealing designs that conceal the ends of deck boards for a clean finish. Some designs feature contrasting material colors on the ends for even more impact. This helps create refined perimeters for a polished look. · Roof-top decking: Urban areas also can benefit from decking to create usable outdoor spaces.

In fact, many new condominium and townhouse communities are incorporating roof-top decks into their designs, particularly in communities with water views or other impressive vistas. HGTV experts suggest roof-top decks feature light-colored materials and fixtures to help keep the area cool even in direct sunlight. · Distressed hardwood: Builder and Developer, a management resource for professional homebuilders, says that the trend for using distressed

hardwoods at home has migrated outside. Some decking manufacturers have recently introduced low-maintenance composite deck boards that mimic the look and feel of distressed, rustic hardwood flooring. This weathered appearance gives the look of age without the upkeep of real aged wood. · Wooden walkways: Decking can be the more traditional design people envision with a patio table or outdoor furniture.

The importance of friends cannot be overstated. Maintaining a healthy group of friends can help relieve stress by enabling a person to have a go-to network of close companions with whom to share the ups and downs of life. The Mayo Clinic says that friends can increase one’s sense of belonging and purpose; help one cope with trauma; encourage change and help one improve his or her self-confidence and self-worth. The medical group also says that people with strong social support systems have a reduced risk of depression, high blood pressure and unhealthy

weights. While friends are important, some people find that making new friends — particularly in adulthood — can be challenging. That’s because making friends may not be too great a priority compared to caring for families or tending to work responsibilities. Those resolving to broaden their social circles can explore these tips for making new friends. • Start at school. School is often the first place children make friends, but school also can be a great place for adults to meet new people. By attending

2364 Roger Stevens Drive, North Gower

school functions, you will be thrust into a circle of people similar to you. Parents who get to know their childrens’ friends’ parents may find that they have more in common than just their children. • Join groups. Kids find it easy to make friends due to consistency. They see the same kids each day at school and through sports teams and clubs. Adults can replicate this consistency by joining groups that spark their interests, finding like-minded people who meet week after week. • Go on a blind “date.” Have a friend set you up with a mutual friend and see


if there is a connection there. You may be able to make new friends simply from an introduction. • Take the lead. Pursue a new friendship by taking some initiative. Invite someone out for coffee or over to your home for a glass of wine. Follow up afterward to say you had a good time. • Be positive. Be conscious of what you are adding to a potential friendship. Start off the relationship adding value and joy to the other person’s life, and he or she may be more inclined to do the same. Over time, you can have conversations about rough patches in

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

your lives but wait until the friendship is firmly established to get so serious. There is no magic number of friends a person should have, but individuals should value quality over quantity. Making friends may seem complicated, but it is actually easier than adults may think when they put themselves out there and shows a willingness to build relationships. • Go to an interesting or fun place that will allow everyone to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life, it’s always easier to be yourself when you are relaxed.

Spring and Summer Maintenance Operations

Spring and summer maintenance activities commence in early spring with lawn reinstatement, repairing areas that were confirmed as being damaged by winter operations. Residents aware of locations requiring repair should report them online as soon as possible. Spring park maintenance activities began in late April (2019 delay in seasonal transition for staff in roads services due to April snowfalls/weather events) weather permitting. This includes the removal of rink boards and temporary lights, the re-installation of seasonal furniture such as benches, picnic tables and waste receptacles, park littler clean-up, preparation of the sports fields and ball diamonds, activation of sports field lighting controls, activation of water services for spray pads, wading pools, irrigation systems, decorative fountains and water foundations. Once the spring park preparations are complete, ongoing park maintenance services will continue throughout the summer season.

Lyme Disease

**We have received a supply a supply of Lyme disease fact sheets and tick keys. Please email, call or visit us during regular office hours to pick up a kit** As spring is finally arriving, Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is resuming its Lyme disease program for 2019. While there are tremendous health benefits to getting out and enjoying activities in the City’s many outdoor areas, it is important that residents be aware of the risks of Lyme disease, particularly if they are in areas suitable for ticks, e.g., wooded areas or areas with tall

grasses. Key messages for the prevention of Lyme disease continue to be: • Applying an approved insect repellent containing DEET or icaridin • Wearing long pants and tucking them into your socks • Doing a tick check on yourself, your children and pets • Checking your pet daily for ticks, especially if it spends time in wooded or overgrown areas • Removing ticks as soon as possible. If you find a tick on your body, using finepointed tweezers, grasp the tick’s head as close to the skin as possible and pull slowly until the tick is removed. Do not twist or rotate the tick. Do not use a match, lotion or anything else on the tick.

Changes to OC Transpo service for summer 2019 Affecting Barrhaven • Route 272 – The route will be extended to start at Cobble Hill and Fallowfield instead of the current starting point at Cobble Hill and Hélène-Campbell. New stops will be implemented on Cobble Hill • Routes 95 and 272 will be reduced because of summer months (not serving students) Queensway Carleton Hospital Ranked #1 in the Region Newsweek, in partnership with Statista Inc., selected 1,000 international hospitals as part of their survey based on the recommendations of medical professionals, patient survey results, and medical key performance indicators (KPIs). Queensway Carleton Hospital was ranked 25th in Canada, and first in the Ottawa region, on a list that includes international institutions like the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, and the Cleveland Clinic, in addition to Canadian hospitals such as Toronto General Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and Montreal General Hospital. “We’re excited to have been named #1 in the region,” shared Leah Levesque, interim CEO of Queensway Carleton Hospital. “We’ve worked very hard to cre-

ate and maintain a culture at QCH that puts the patient at the centre of every decision we make in terms of high quality, safe care. It’s a testament to the commitment of our team that we’ve been ranked so highly. And we’re committed to continually improving, because there’s always more that we can do.” The Newsweek list was compiled by Statista Inc. who asked more than 40,000 medical experts in 11 countries to recommend the top institutions both in their own country, and internationally. These recommendations accounted for 55 per cent of the hospitals’ final score (50 per cent for domestic recommendations, 5 per cent for international), and were added to the patient survey results and the KPI’s – which were weighed at 15 and 35 per cent respectively – to rank the institutions. Participants were surveyed over a period of four months between

October 2018 and January 2019. The list does not include specialty hospitals, and was limited to hospitals with more than 100 inpatient beds. City Parks and Sports Fields One of the City’s best attributes is its parks and sports fields. As the temperature increases and recreational sports leagues get back into action, By-law & Regulatory Services would like to remind the public about regulations that are in place to ensure everyone can enjoy our shared spaces. • General hours of operations are between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m., unless otherwise posted • Smoking and vaping of any substance is prohibited in City parks and City sports fields • Alcohol is prohibited, unless at a licensed event approved by the City’s Recreation, Cultural & Facility Services Department • Dogs must remain on-leash, unless in designated off-leash areas.

Community Police Message With the warm weather beginning, so does our enjoyment of our beautiful city. We have to keep in mind that some areas like community parks and outlining areas have some rules for the use and enjoyment of it. City parks do close after midnight in the City of Ottawa. Please be respectful as there are people living in homes next to these parks that have retired for the evening. With loud noise and people in these parks after hours, it does create calls for service to Bylaw and to the police service. Also water areas like quarries on private property have no access and people attending are Trespassing under the

Trespass to Property Act. What this also creates, is vehicles being parking on the roadway and otherwise in a no parking zone which also causes disruption in these communities. Let’s all try to be good neighbours this summer and share the area in a respectful way. -- Cst. S. Jordan STEP to focus on motorcycle safety and pedestrian safety during May The Gatineau Police Service and Ottawa Police Service’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) will focus on motorcycle safety and pedestrian safety during the month of May. Motorcycle Safety: Between 2013 and 2017, there were 722 collisions involving motorcycles resulting in 597 injuries and 18 fatalities. Pedestrian Safety: Between 2013 and 2017, there were 1708 reportable collisions involving pedestrians resulting in 1827 injuries and 29 fatalities.

The IndependentSPORTS Barrhaven’s Phil Iloki selected by Toronto Argonauts in CFL Draft By Jeff Morris Phil “The Thrill” Iloki may have given the Nepean Redskins and Eagles, and the Carleton Ravens, some of the most memorable moments in local football history. But there was nothing thrilling or even memorable for him about the moment he was drafted. “I watched the first round and then during the second round I fell asleep,” said Iloki. “It wasn’t until the next morning that I found out I was drafted “ The Toronto Argonauts made Iloki the first pick of the seventh round of the CFL Draft, which took place Thurs., May 2. “I woke up and I had a bunch of texts and messages congratulating me,” he said. “I know I was asleep when it happened, but it’s still a dream come true.” Iloki is planning on attending the Argos’ training camp to get his toe dipped into the pro foot-

ball pool. After camp, he will return to Carleton for his fifth season. Kene Onyeka of the Ravens was drafted by Ottawa last year and also attended camp before returning to the Ravens for a fifth year. “It’s the right thing to do,” Iloki said. “From what I’ve been told, I’m going to get great coaching and I will go in with my eyes and ears open.” He says coming back to Carleton is also an exciting opportunity. “We are going to have a good team, and I don’t want to miss this year,” he said. “Everyone here knows that we have something special. We’re a big family.” One thing that will make this year special will be playing on the same team as his brother, Honoreal, who is also a graduate of the Redskins/Eagles program. “We’ve never played on the same team before,” Phil said of

playing with his younger brother. “It will be something special. It will mean a lot to us, and to our friends and family who will be at the games.” Being a mentor to his talented brother and a host of younger Ravens has become part of the Carleton football culture. Iloki will become the 11th player from Carleton at a CFL camp later this month – an alltime high for the school. While he acknowledges several of his youth and university coaches as having a hand in his success, his older teammates also helped groom him. “I got to watch and learn from Nate Behar for a couple of years, and he is still at the school almost everyday working out with us,” Iloki said. “He is still part of that locker room – part of the family.” Iloki said that 2017 draft class still sets a tone in the Ravens locker room, as many of them are still training at Carle-

ton with the current players. “The one thing that group had that made them different was their compete level,” Iloki said. “These guys were competitive human beings. I remember one practice when Nate Behar and Justin Howell went at it and nearly had a fist fight on the field. Then, a couple hours later, they’re laughing and eating lunch together and then they hung out that night. That’s the competitiveness in them. They pushed other and made each other better, but they were still a family.” Iloki will enter the 2019 season 10th on the all-time list for the Ravens for both receptions and reception yards. Barring injury, he will be moving up both lists on a weekly basis. He is also tied for sixth in career TD receptions with former Ravens star and head coach Kim McQuaig, who was also a wide receiver drafted by the Toronto Argonauts.

Former Nepean Redskins/Nepean Eagles wide receiver Phil Iloki was selected by the Toronto Argonauts in the 2019 CFL Draft. He is planning on returning to Carleton to play for the Ravens for his fifth year before turning pro. Mike Carroccetto photo
