Barrhaven teacher gets conditional sentence for sexually assaulting student A Barrhaven high school teacher has been given a six-month conditional sentence with 18 months of probation for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old student. St. Mother Teresa

High School teacher Jessica Beraldin pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault last June. Charges for sexual exploitation and making sexually explicit material available to a child

were withdrawn. The court heard that between the summer of 2015 and March, 2016, Beraldin, then a 30-year-old mother of one, and a male student kissed, and she al-

lowed him to touch her breasts. Beraldin, who taught Grades 7-9 at St. Mother Teresa, apologized when she addressed the court, adding that she was disappointed

in herself and that she took advantage of her position. Her family was in the courtroom with her to offer support, as were a number of St. Mother Teresa students who were there to sup-

port both her and the victim. Beraldin was required to provide a DNA sample, and she will be added to the National Sex Offender Registry for 10 years.

The IndependentNEWS Funding announced for 30 room addition to St. Joseph High School Walmart added to list of stores that St. Joseph Catholic High School in Barrhaven will be getting a $17.6 million, 30-room addition. The announcement of the Ministry of Education investment into the school was made by the Ottawa Catholic School Board last week. The addition is slated to open in September, 2020. This project will create additional space for 650 students and in-

clude classrooms and special purpose rooms. The energy management of the addition will exceed the National Energy Code performance standards by 20%. “We are pleased that the Ministry has recognized the growth in the southern part of our community,” Director of Education Denise Andre said. “The addition to St. Joseph High School will support innovative, collaborative

spaces in a permanent build that is well suited to our deep learning framework.” The board has added similar additions, using the same efficient floor plan, to its high schools for Grades 7 - 12. Similar additions have been added to St. Francis Xavier (2017), All Saints, St. Mother Teresa, and Holy Trinity High Schools (2007), and St. Peter and Sacred Heart High Schools (2003).

sell beer and cider in Barrhaven

Beer and cider will soon be available at Walmart in Barrhaven. The local Walmart is one of 87 grocery stores across the province added to the list of stores where beer and cider may be sold. It is one of nine stores in Ottawa added to the list. It is also one of three Walmarts add-

ed to the list, making them the first in the city approved for beer and cider sales. The other two Walmarts are also in the southwest end of the city, as the Walmart at Fernbank and Terry Fox, as well as the Walmart at Baseline and Maitland were also included. Beer, wine and

cider are currently sold at Loblaws, Farm Boy and Metro in Barrhaven, as well as at Moncion’s Your Independent Grocer in Riverside South. Sobeys in Barrhaven has a Wine Rack location. The stores will begin selling beer and cider in April of this year.

DINING OUT g Fun Family Night Out n i r u t a e F

Tips for a fun family night out In its 2016 National Dining Survey, Zagat found that the average person dines out 4.5 times per week. That figure may seem high to some, especially parents with young children at home. While parents of young children may not dine out as often as the average person, there are ways for families to plan fun nights out on the town, no matter how young their kids might be. · Find family-friendly restaurants. The establishments where families choose to do their dining can make all the difference. Trendy hotspots or upscale restaurants may not be great choices for family nights out. Such establishments may be too expensive or fail to offer kid-friendly fare, and parents of especially young children may feel uncomfortable if their tots begin to cry in the middle of dinner. When choosing a restaurant for a family night out, parents should look for a

2364 Roger Stevens Drive, North Gower

spot that’s naturally more noisy so a crying baby or excited child won’t make moms and dads or other diners uncomfortable. Diners or chain restaurants tend to offer kids’ menus in addition to plenty of dishes that kids will readily consume. · Choose the right time. Dining out at night can be difficult for families, as kids might be growing tired. Instead of a night out on the town, book a mid- to late-afternoon out. Restaurants tend to be less busy during these times of day, and parents can relax and enjoy the company of their children while still getting out of the house for a family meal together. · Bring along some entertainment. Some kidfriendly restaurants may provide crayons and placemats that kids can use to create their own artistic masterpieces. But parents should bring backup entertainment just in case. Pack some

613-489-2278

crayons and coloring books or bring along a book to read to your children while you wait for your meal to be delivered. Bring along a couple of toys to keep especially young children occupied as well. · Practice your night out. Parents of young children who have yet to try dining out as a family can make a few practice runs at home. Choose a night at home to teach kids how to behave at restaurants. If kids tend to squirm a lot or take long periods of time to eat meals at home, explain to them that such behavior is unacceptable at restaurants, encouraging them to sit still and focus on eating their meals during your practice run. Nights out on the town as a family may make parents of young children nervous or hesitant. But there are a handful of ways to make sure such excursions are fun for kids and parents alike.

The telephone fraud calls continue for a lot of us. I get asked a lot about “make the right call” with these kinds of things. There is a Government of Canada web site that will take the complaint. Just like reporting to Ottawa Police it’s as important as information sharing to report incidents to the Canadian anti-fraud centre for their records. They will then continue to educate the public on the latest frauds and best way to handle such occurrences. Please see the antifraud centre www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude. ca/reportincident-signalerincident/index-eng. htm for more information.

MacLeod named shadow finance critic, will not run for leadership By Charlie Senack Barrhaven Independent After a week of turmoil in the Ontario Conservative Party, Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod held a free pizza party at the Barrhaven Boston Pizza alongside Bill Walker, MPP for Bruce-Grey and Owen Sound. During Walker’s visit to Ottawa, he toured multiple long term care homes alongside MacLeod, including the Perley-Rideau Veterans complex in the East end. “I wanted to see them because they’re such a different model and I have a real affinity for veterans so I wanted to see how that worked and what it was about,” Walker told the crowd during the pizza party.

On Tuesday Jan, 30, they visited the Osgoode Care Centre alongside Councillors George Darouze and Scott Moffatt. The original purpose of the party was to celebrate another successful turkey swap, a campaign MacLeod was a part of where people could drop off a turkey to the Barrhaven Boston Pizza location in return for a free pizza voucher. Their goal was to receive 100 turkeys in 2017, a goal they surpassed by early December. Many of the questions that came up during the two hour-long party included whether MacLeod would run for Ontario PC Leader. “A lot of Ottawa residents have been en-

couraging me to run as have been people from across Ontario,” MacLeod told the Messenger. “The rules have not been set and we are not quite sure when or how long this leadership will be.” She said Marjory LeBreton, former Government Leader of the Senate and Senator Vern White — alongside others — were looking into her options and would get back to her. The next day she announced she would not run for party leader, and interim leader Vic Fedeli announced MacLeod would become the new Finance Critic. Christine Elliott, Caroline Mulroney and Doug Ford are seeking the party leadership position. The Ontario PC party

has announced it will hold its vote for new party leader on March 10th. One party goer asked MacLeod if she felt having a female as party leader would help the Conservatives win the election. “I think we need to have a strong leader (because) we have a lot of problems we need to clean up not just in this party, but in this province,” MacLeod responded.

What in the Sam Hill are they doing?

INDEPENDENT Editorial

It’s not that complicated Protectionism. It’s always been considered a dirty and ugly word in provincial politics. Yet, given the current climate of business in Ontario, protectionism may be the only thing that can save our local economy in rural Ottawa. The new wage increases and labour changes instituted by the Wynne Government were misguided and out of touch. The hardest hit local businesses are the grocery stores. They are the largest private sector employers within the communities in the Carleton riding. They provide hundreds of jobs in the communities they serve. They hire our students. They give back to the community, often in ways that their customers never see. But the worst is yet to come, and we will start seeing it when the snow melts. One of the frustrations of Ontario seasonal small business owners is that they cannot compete with businesses from Quebec coming in and undercutting them. Think about it for a minute. Every summer, you probably see a number of driveways being sealed, landscapers at work, and roofs being redone. You probably drive by a lot of different construction sites. Oh yes, and you also see Quebec license plates everywhere. Our contractor and trades workers are not allowed to go to Quebec to work, yet it is somehow okay for Quebec workers to come in and

BARRHAVEN

undercut Ontario workers in our own province. The issue was raised in 2013 by MPP Jack McLaren, when he was still a member of the PC caucus. His bill was shot down, Liberal guns a blazin’. It’s much more complicated, we were all told. Really? Is it? Well let’s uncomplicate things for a second. This summer, there is absolutely no way that our local tradespeople and contractors in the Carleton riding, and in all of Eastern Ontario, will be able to compete with their Quebec counterparts who are paying their workers about 15 per cent less in wages. And what is Ontario afraid of? We are not asking to open up jobs in Quebec for Ontario workers. We are simply wanting Ontario to even the playing field and give Ontario workers and business the same protection here that Quebec workers and businesses have there. What are the Wynne Liberals afraid of? Losing votes in Quebec? We can talk about wage increases all we want. But it won’t do anything for the province’s small business economy as long as the guy sealing your neighbour’s driveway is from Gatineau. And as for the local grocery stores, let’s hope that people support them rather than make a weekly road trip to Costco in Gatineau for cheaper beer and produce. JM

I wonder what ever happened to my old friend, Roger. I guess using the term ‘friend’ is a stretch. We met a few times and chatted during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. I thought about him while I watched mixed doubles curling during CBC’s Winter Olympics coverage Saturday afternoon. Roger was a photographer from Arizona. He was sent up to Calgary to shoot the Winter Olympics. Fresh out of Carleton University, I took my first ever vacation and went to the Olympics for two weeks to work as a photographer. It was 30 years ago this week when I sat on an Air Canada plane with Men Without Hats blaring out of my Sony Walkman as the plane took off for Calgary. I met Roger in the photographer’s room on my second day there. Being a friendly American with a happy disposition, he struck up a conversation. “You know,” he drawled, “I’ve shot hockey before and I have seen figure skating on TV, but I haven’t got a clue about any of these other sports.” I smiled. “It’s pretty simple,” I told him. “Most of the events are about how fast you can go down a mountain, or maybe how far you can jump off a mountain.” I paused for a minute. “And then there’s curling.” “I saw that on my schedule,” he said. “What the Sam Hill is curling?” Curling was making an appearance at the Calgary Games as a demonstration sport. It would be added to the list of competitions for the following Olympic Games in Albertville. I thought about how I would describe it to him. “It’s kind of like shuffleboard,” I told him. “Shuffleboard? Like what seniors play at retirement homes?” “Kind of, but it’s a little more complicated.” “What are the brooms for?” I know nothing about curling, but I thought I might be able to answer this. “If the sweepers sweep, the can make the stone curve, or curl, a bit, and they can make it go further.” He paused for a minute. “I went over to the arena where curling is to check it out,” he said, “and did you know they have ashtrays on stands there? Are you allowed to smoke while you curl?” I laughed at his observation. “I think smoking and drinking is mandatory.” He kind of laughed and continued flipping through the media material. “Okay, here’s one I totally don’t get,” he said. “What’s that?” “These dudes cross country skiing ps with guns on their backs. Do they like shoot each other during the competition?” I laughed. “No,” he continued. “I don’t mean do they kill each other – though they probably do that in Russia or East Germany to people trying to

escape. But are they like paint ball guns where they can hit their competitors and get points?” I laughed again. “No, it’s biathlon,” I told him. “They ski, and a few times during the race, they have to stop and shoot at targets. The more tired you are, the harder it is to shoot.” He paused, processing it. “So if they go over the jump with their gun, do they shoot at targets while they are in the air?” FROM THE “No,” I said, “but that would be really cool.” He continued looking through his stuff. “Are you shooting the USA-Czech hockey game tonight?” by Jeff Morris “Yeah, I’m going for sure,” I replied. “Do you think the Americans can win gold like in Lake Placid?” “I don’t think the Russians would let that happen again,” I replied. “Do you think the Americans will beat the Czechs tonight?” “That should be a good game,” I answered him. “The Americans are good. I heard Mike Richter is a really good goalie, and they have some guys like Brian Leetch and Tony Granato who should do well in the NHL. The Czechs have this really good goalie – some guy named Dominik Hasek. I was reading about him in The Hockey News. He’s supposed to be amazing.” He thought for a minute. “Maybe when we play the Russians, they can let everyone wear guns on their backs,” he said. “That would boost the ratings.” The Czechs beat the Americans 7-5 that night. Richter let in seven goals, and Hasek got yanked after three. You would never have guessed that they would end up as NHL All-Stars. After the game, I saw Roger again. “So what are you shooting tomorrow?” I asked. “I’ve got some fun stuff coming up,” he said. “I’ve got figure skating – I could watch Katerina Witt all day – and then they want me to take pictures of this nut from England who is a ski jumper but he is just a beginner. And then I have to shoot these crazy guys from Jamaica who are in bobsledding. I guess they want photos of all these guys in case they kill themselves competing.” We both laughed. I hadn’t heard of either the Jamaican bobsled team or Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards by that point, but within days, they would be household names. “Hey, Jeff,” Roger said. “I got one more question for you, and it’s a Canadian thing. “What’s that,” I asked. “What the Sam Hill is ‘Roll up the Rim to Win’?” I smiled. “You have to drink coffee,” I said, “with a gun on your back.” I always wondered if he thought I was serious. And I should have asked him who Sam Hill was.

The Independent#DISCOVERBARRHAVEN Primo Storage and Trailer Sales has grown from its grass roots with Barrhaven There is nothing like the story of a successful family business. Primo Storage and Trailer Sales has two of them. “Even though we are in one complex, we are actually two distinct businesses,” said Primo owner Chris Milosek, who noted that the storage business is completely separate from the trailer and RV sales and rental business. The storage business offers heated, non-heated or airconditioned storage units for traditional commercial or residential tenants. “We’ve been here a long time,” he said. “We’ve seen a lot of things come and go. We’ve seen a lot of changes in Barrhaven. Now, it’s almost a self-sustaining community where people don’t have to go anywhere. There is a lot here

and often there is no need to leave the community.” Milosek started working in the family business at a young age. “I started high school in 1987, and I started working here in 1988 or 89,” said Milosek. “I remember working over where the trailer sales building is now and showing people units and doing whatever as a kid – cleaning things up and planting trees that are now 40 feet tall to tarring roofs to cleaning up buildings after they were built with all the drywall garbage to snowplowing and cutting the lawn. There’s not much here that I haven’t done.” Milosek was 30 when his father passed away. The fact that he had worked in the family business was a positive thing that made the transi-

tion less difficult. But, he said, the struggles of that transition 14 years ago still had its challenges, both emotionally and from a business standpoint. “It was a bumpy road,” he said. “I knew what was going on, and I knew the players, like the accountant and the lawyer. If I didn’t know the answer to something, there were people to point me in the right direction. I tended to follow along in the family business, I just didn’t intend to do it as quick-

ly.” In November, Primo was once again a sponsor of the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade. The company has been involved in the parade for several years, and their trailers used for floats by other groups such as schools have always been a big part of the parade. For Milosek, it’s part of giving back to the community that has given so much to his family business. “The Santa Claus Parade in Barrhaven is a great event for families and for the community, and it’s an event we look forward to every year,” he said. “The trailer and RV business is the one that gets more noticed. There are always lots of lights, and it’s a fun thing to be a part of.” The parade, however, is just a small part of the support that

Primo gives to the community. “We tend to help out anything with equipment or furniture that can be used, Ottawa Neighbourhood Services, the Mission, and we get into other things like the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation which is close to us, given that my father passed away from cancer, and we get into things like the Bell Warriors Football Club. We try to keep it within the immediate, local vicinity where there is a direct impact on people’s lives. “Barrhaven is our community. I have watched Barrhaven grow from when the Barrhaven Mall was the only retail space and there were only one or two schools to where it is now. It’s been a big transformation since my dad and his partner bought the property back in 1967.”

Commitment to the community is what drives the MacDonald-Moussa Team There is no doubt that Jason MacDonald and Nim Moussa of the MacDonald-Moussa Team know Barrhaven. They know every neighbourhood and every street and every corner and every nook and cranny in the community. But it goes beyond that. Barrhaven is who they are. “When we work with our clients, it’s not just about buying and selling homes,” said MacDonald. “We are selling you a lifestyle. Your home is much more than your house. We want to get you into the perfect situation for your family.” Shortly after MacDonald and Moussa joined forces several years ago, they realized that they were a perfect

fit to be business partners. As part of the Re/ Max Hallmark Realty Group, MacDonald and Moussa have become one of Ottawa’s top teams, earning the prestigious Re/Max Diamond Award. Both men are also heavily involved in the community. MacDonald is the President of the Barrhaven BIA, while Moussa, an OSU soccer dad, is also the Vice President of the Havenlea Chapman Mills Community Association. “It has been a great fit,” said Moussa of their partnership. “We both have experience and we were both successful, but we have the same morals and ethics, and the same commitment to the community.” That commitment to

the community has been a big part of what drives the MacDonald-Moussa Team. They were sponsors of the 2017 Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade, and that is just the tip of the ice berg for their community contributions. They have been big supporters of the Queensway-Carleton Hospital and QCH Foundation, the Barrhaven Food Cupboard, Barrhaven Canada Day, many sports groups, local schools, and organizations including Ottawa South United, and many groups and associations within the community. One event hosted by the MacDonald-Moussa Team is their second annual “Spare A Night For QCH” Bowling Night at the Merivale Bowling Lanes.

“We are strong believers in giving back to the community that has supported us so much over the years,” said MacDonald. “When you look at all of the support we give, it all goes directly back into the community. That is important to us.” While their commitment and dedication to the community is what drives them, it is their track record and their level of personal care to their clients that define them. “When you become a client of ours, the most important things you are getting are our knowledge and our experience,” MacDonald said. “We know the market and we understand the market. We know what it takes to maximize the

Like us on Facebook - Barrhaven Independent www.facebook.com/Barrhaven-Independent-142393275816516/

value of your home if you are selling.” One thing MacDonald and Moussa are not big on is gimmicky sales pitches. “Some brokers will claim that they will buy your home if it does not sell in 30 days,” MacDonald said. “That’s not who we are. We are about getting you top dollar for your home, even if it takes an extra few days or a couple of weeks.” While their success and track record speaks for itself, the most important thing the MacDonald-Moussa Team can provide you with is a strong, professional relationship. “We know that buying or selling a home can be one of the most important decisions a

person or a family can make in their lifetime,” said MacDonald. “We are here to take the worry out of it, and we are also here to get to know you, and find out what you like and what is the right fit for you and your family. Nim and I have both made some great friendships in this business over the years. Building these relationships are important for us as we serve our clients in the community. We want to put our clients into the right home, in the right neighbourhood, near the right school.” For more information on the MacDonald-Moussa Team or to register for the “Spare A Night For QCH” blowing fundraiser, visit www. mmteam.ca.

Cupcakes are only part of the Anabia Cupcakery Café story For Anabia Cupcakery Café owner David De Almeida, describing his business to a new customer is simple. “We have great cupcakes,” he said, “but cupcakes are only a part of what we do. We have a lot more than cupcakes.” De Almeida opened his business in June, 2017. The vision for Anabia took a couple of twists and turns along the way. What he came up with is one of Barrhaven’s most unique businesses that has the look and feel of a quaint, European café right on Strandherd Road. “My first idea was open a bike café, and it would have been in Westboro” said De Almeida, who spent years as a competitive cyclist. “It’s a growing trend to have these cafés in Europe, Australia, and in the U.S. People ride their bikes to them, and they can enjoy the café and also get service or supplies for their bikes.” The bicycle part of the equation was not doable for De Almeida, but a bake shop and café was. “I went back to my business plan and did a lot of research,” he said. “There was nowhere in Barrhaven to get fresh baked goods. I thought that Barrhaven really needed something like this.” What De Almeida created is something unique. The food is exquisite, the coffee is premium, and the look and feel of Anabia is that of a European café. The name, Anabia, is a combination of the names of his two daughters, Analidhia and Bia. “Obviously, the first thing people talk about is our cupcakes,” he said. “I wanted the best quality. Everything is made from scratch here, and everything is fresh. We use the best flower and the best ingredients. Yes, it costs a little bit more, but our customers are paying for the best quality we can give them.” De Almeida’s eyes light up with excitement as he talks about Anabia’s cupcakes and baked goods. He is a perfectionist, and every-

thing has to pass his test. “My father was a baker,” he said, “and I started baking my own bread from scratch when I was 16. We have two outstanding bakers that work here, and everything we make has to meet our own high standards.” De Almeida took the same care in selecting the coffee that he would serve at Anabia. Café Union, a highend Montreal-based coffee company that was founded in 1910, is the coffee supplier. Their coffee is used for Anabia’s espresso, cortado, macchiato, cappuccino, latte and regular drip coffee. “I wanted to make sure that our coffee was the best,” he said. “Café Union is a high-end coffee and I wanted something that was special for our customers. We did a taste test with all of their different blends and drinks. Everything was great, and the company’s customer service is very good.” While coffee and baked goods get its customers through the day, there is a different vibe at Anabia in the evening. “A lot of people don’t realize that we are licensed,” he said. “A lot of people will come in for a glass of wine or a liqueur in the evening. We also offer a charcuterie plate, and I made the bread myself for that. Our draft beer is Beau’s, which many people consider the best local craft beer. We also have a fine selection of wines and liqueurs. Again, we want everything here to be the best.” Another delectable treat that Anabia carries is YOW Popcorn. It is a highend, premium flavoured popcorn based out of Barrhaven. “It’s a great fit for us,” said De Almeida. “They have the same approach to their popcorn as we do to our baked goods. Everything is fresh, and it is the best quality possible. It has been very popular since we have carried it.” Anabia hosts a paint night once a month, and they often have live music

in the store with local artists entertaining the customers. They also have regular specials, including a Tuesday special from 5-7 p.m. where a draft beer is half price with the purchase of a bag of YOW Popcorn. “Our biggest challenge is just to have people come inside,” De Almeida said. “Our first year has gone well – better than expected – but we still have a lot of people who don’t know that we are here.” And when they do discover Anabia, they become regulars. “We tried to create something that has a European flavour with European quality and a European ambi-

11-year-old Barrhaven singer named Faces Top Female Artist Bollywood, Anisha said she is inspired by Ariana Grande. “She motivates me to pursue my dream, and I want to be just like her one day,” Anisha said. Anisha is looking to expand her repertoire as she pursues a future as a singer. “I’ve started singing a little bit of pop music, some old music, new music, slow music, fast music,” she said. “I am hoping to become a singer.” Anisha has already written and composed three songs, and she still finds time to sing in the ACES school choir under the guidance of one of her singing teachers and mentors, Kathy Goodsell. Anisha will be singing O Canada on Thursday, March 1 at Holi on the Hill, a festival of colours to be held at Sir John

She has received tremendous support from her parents and family through the years on her musical journey. “It all started with Bollywood music,” she said. “I used to sing along with the music on the TV with the music.” Two years ago, she decided to share her love for music and posted a clip of herself singing on Facebook. “There were millions of views and people were liking it,” she said.

To actually win the Faces Award was amazing.” Once she found out she was nominated, Anisha mobilized her friends and family to get voting. “All my friends and all my family were voting, even people overseas,” she said. “It felt great that people were voting

A three-layered government objective to provide safe and affordable housing to more families and individuals in Ottawa was launched in Barrhaven last week. The federal, provincial and municipal governments are investing more than $74 million to create more than 675 affordable housing units. The announcement was made at the official opening of The Haven on Via Verona, off Longfields and across from Ken Ross Park. The development will provide more families, seniors, chronically homeless men and women, and people living with disabilities a place to call home in Ottawa. The

The Honourable JeanYves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister Responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), along with the Honourable Peter Milczyn, Ontario’s Minister

of Housing and Minister Responsible for the Poverty Reduction Strategy, made the announcement last Tuesday. Jim Watson, Mayor of the City of Ottawa, also participated in the event.

HAVEN continues from page 12 The federal and provincial governments jointly contributed more than $54 million through the Investment in Affordable Housing (IAH) Agreement. The City of Ottawa also contributed more than $20 million to these projects. The investment is for 16 projects in Ottawa, one of which is The Haven. The projects fall under Canada’s 10-year, $40 billion National Housing Strategy. “This is the first ever national housing strategy,” said Minister Duclos. “The government is investing $40 billion for Canadians so that they can have a place to call home.” Under the National Housing Strategy, the federal government will recognize and progressively implement every Canadian’s right to access housing that meets their needs and that they can afford. “Our Government is taking action to strengthen

the middle class,” added Minister Duclos. “Through new investments in the National Housing Strategy, we will ensure that more Canadians have access to housing that meets their needs and that they can afford. We will reduce housing need, lift more Canadians out of poverty, and contribute to strong, more inclusive communities.” The Honourable Peter Milczyn, Ontario Minister of Housing and Minister Responsible for the Poverty Reduction Strategy, said he spent many hours on the phone with Duclos and said it was finally nice to discuss the project in person at The Haven. “As a government, it’s our vision that every family has an affordable place to call home,” said Minister Milczyn. “When all three levels of government work together we can build strong, inclusive communities and reach our goal of ending chronic homelessness by 2025.”

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said the city is committed to providing access to safe and affordable housing to all of the city’s residents. “These important investments will help our most vulnerable residents find a stable place they can call home,” said Mayor Watson. “By working collaboratively with the Provincial and Federal Governments and with our service providers, the City is increasing its affordable and supportive housing stock and remains on track to meet its goal of ending chronic homelessness by 2024.” The Haven, owned by the Multifaith Housing Initiative, was referred to as a crown jewel among the 16 projects. The Multifaith Housing Initiative of Ottawa was established as a non-profit charitable organization in 2002, which has grown into a coalition of over 80 faith communities including Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindu, Uni-

PEDORTHICS

HOmE HEalTH CaRE

Q: How do I determine if I need a foot orthotic? A: If you are experiencing foot or lower limb discomfort, ask your physician if a referral to a Canadian Certified Pedorthist would help. A detailed Derek Gilmer Canadian Certified Pedorthist assessment from an orthotic and footwear expert such as a Pedorthist can confirm if a foot orthotic will assist you with a particular foot, lower limb or even back problem. The objective of a foot orthotic is to help reduce unnecessary stresses and/or pain by either re-aligning your feet within your footwear or accommodating specific conditions or deformities.

Q: My dad is having mobility problems and needs a four wheel walker, I was wondering if there was any funding for them?

Q: Heart disease is in my family history, at what age should I begin paying attention to heart health and what tests should I get done regularly?

A: Absolutely, if your dad is assessed by a qualified occupational therapist and michele Sauter Home Health Care Manager qualifies, the therapist can fill out the paperwork and your dad will have his walker. The government pays 75% and his portion is 25%. Also if he has private Insurance they will pick up the balance in most cases. Come in and we will help you with the process.

A: If you have a family history of heart disease, it’s a good idea to have your blood pressure Dana macDonald checked annually.

A: You will be shocked to hear that

according to the Ontario Home Ownership index on a semi-annual research survey, only 57% of Ontarian’s own their own home. So 43% rent and 34% have never owned a home. The biggest shocker is that only 76% agreed that home ownership is important to them. That is crazy! I was taught the importance of homeownership by my father & was saving to buy my first home at age 19. It is sad that we aren’t teaching all of our children the importance of home ownership and financial freedom. I for one am on a mission to improve these stats! Have a great month sharing the word.

Veteran athletes with Barrhaven ties excited to be in Pyeong Chang The Olympics will be somewhat of a swan song for a pair of veteran athletes with ties to Barrhaven. Bobsledder Jesse Lumsden, who spent his childhood in Barrhaven before moving to Burlington at the age of 12, will be competing in his final Olympics. Former NHL player Chris Kelly, a longtime Stonebridge resident, will be the captain of the Canadian men’s hockey team. Lumsden’s journey to Olympic bobsledding has been welldocumented. The son of former Ottawa Gee Gees and CFL star Neil Lumsden, Jesse won the Hec Crighton Trophy as the top university football player in Canada in 2004. He spent time in the NFL as a running back before coming to the CFL, where his career was cut short by a shoulder injury. Lumsden turned to bobsledding in 2009, and qualified for the 2010 Vancouver

Olympics. In 2014 in Sochi, Lumsden’s hopes for a medal were ended by a frightening crash where their four-man sled flipped and skidded to the finish line upsidedown. “We crossed the finish line and we were afforded that third run,” said Lumsden. “My mom found out we were okay and sent me an email that said, ‘Don’t let that be your last run.’ That was our mindset going into that run. We had the fastest Canadian push and we had the 10th fastest time on a track that was deteriorating, so there were some silver linings that came out of that. I’m glad we finished the way we finished. It built a lot of character.” Lumsden took two years off and then rejoined the national team in 2016. He is excited to be competing for Canada one for one last Olympics. “It’s special to wear

that maple leaf and to have it as part of your wardrobe,” he said. “I will cherish that. But it’s not about track suits and photo shoots. We are going there to win some hardware.” Lumsden won a silver medal in December in the two-man event on the World Cup circuit. Kelly, meanwhile, has been playing for the Belleville Senators of the AHL this year, and was named captain of the Canadian men’s team. A longtime Ottawa Senator, Kelly won a Stanley Cup with Boston before returning to the Sens last year. Through his time in Boston, he remained a Barrhaven resident. This year, he began the season with a try out with the Edmonton Oilers. He came back to the Sens and has been playing in Belleville. “Such a great honour,” Kelly told reporters after being named captain. “And very humbling. There’s so many

great people in that locker room who could ultimately be wearing it. It’s a thrill.” Kelly said in a CTV interview that he has been on an Olympic high since arriving in Pyeong Chang “You know what, I thought I would be a lot more tired than I am,” said Kelly. “That excitement coming and seeing the locker room, the arena and the (Athletes) Village, I think that we’re like little kids right now. We’re definitely excited to see everything and get acclimated as quick as possible.”
