Our 2018 Person of the Year

A New Year means a new beginning in our lives Every year we begin a new chapter of our lives. It resembles a blank piece of paper given to us, new opportunities, full of possibilities and waiting for us to fill. We all have the same resolutions as we begin each year; spend more time with family, get into shape, be better organized and so on. They sound easy and normal to follow but we know that there will be many times that we can’t keep the promises.

THis week,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

We start the New Year with hope and determination but making changes in our lives is not as easy as it seems. Changes do not happen by themselves; they require determination, effort, sac-

rifice, planning and discipline. Changes don’t just happen because we hope, dream or even yearn, we have to make them happen. The most frequent mistake we make is to delay them; maybe that’s why we have the same resolutions each year! Real change begins with our attitude, understanding and commitment to our goals. Change is not brought about by time alone, it does happen when

we invest with time, effort and hard work; this is the change we must pursue. Change doesn’t just happen, it is made. The New Year is here, so is our future! As we begin the New Year, we are conscious that as time passes our life constantly changes. The New Year is a time of memories, when we sit back and reflect on the past year. We remember things we left undone; we didn’t have the time, in-

clination or perhaps the desire to finish. We recall, with pride sometimes, those projects or activities we accomplished or were rewarded for. We recall friendships made and friendships lost, some through death and some perhaps through uncaring actions or words. When we see time passing by so rapidly, how often have we wished we could shout, “freeze” and hold precious moments and ex-

periences. The passing of an old year and the beginning of the new is a rather dramatic reminder that time does move on in its relentless way. This New Year I’ve decided not to make any resolutions except the one I think I might be able to keep.- that one is - I will be thankful for the wonderful grace I receive that will continue to help keep me “on the right track” in 2019..

terminal tumor. Maddy was admitted to Roger Neilson House, where she passed away peacefully surrounded by her family and friends. The first Maddy’s Gala was a gathering of people close to the Ottawa family, and it raised $10,000 for Roger’s House. From there, the gala

has grown and taken on a life of its own. Through the gala and other Sens Foundation events, the Otto family have become champions for Roger Neilson House and have raised close to a half million dollars as a legacy for their little girl. “Our lives changed forever in an instant,” said Jeanine Otto, Maddy’s mother. “At

one moment, we are with a lively little girl with her infectious smile. And suddenly, she’s gone.” After Maddy’s passing, Roger Neilson House continued to support the Otto family through bereavement counselling and group therapy. Maddy’s Gala was held the following February, and

the event has steadily grown each year. Last year, the event raised more than $100,000. The Otto family has helped raise more than $700,000 in the last decade for Roger Neilson House. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit www.maddysgala. com.

Rabbi Blum is our 2018 Person of the Year

There were a number of different options that we thought about when we selected our 2018 Glen Dicks Person of the Year. But when we looked at the timing of everything, as well as the impact on the community, Rabbi Menachem Blum of the Ottawa Torah Centre was the one name that kept popping up. We started naming our Person of the Year more than a decade ago. We have had different criteria over the years. We don’t name elected officials, because it is their job to be a leader and make a difference in the community. In the past, we have had volunteers, like David Rattray. We have had people who have risen above adversity and made a difference in the lives of many, such as the Stringer family. We have had a teacher, a double-lung transfer survivor and organ donor advocate, a world tae kwondo champion, and young people who have lost their lives but have made an enormous impact on the community after their passing. But the one thing that they all had in common is that they all made us reflect. Their stories and what they have done for the community made all of us want to be better people, and to help make Barrhaven a better community. Rabbi Blum fits the criteria. Obviously, as leader of the Ottawa Torah Centre in Barrhaven, he makes a big difference in his community within the community. But his leadership transcends the Torah Centre and spreads throughout Barrhaven and Ottawa. But without a doubt, the most welcoming arms to newcomers in Barrhaven has been those of Rabbi Blum. He promotes acceptance and a peaceful integration into an ever-changing Canada, which is becoming as new to lifelong Canadians as it is to refugees from Syria, Africa, Haiti, or whatever part of the world our new neighbours are coming from. “We can only control or focus on the messages that we put out there,” Rabbi Blum said in our August interview. “We share a multi-cultural community, and the message we send is one of acceptance and love. The more we learn about each others’ faiths and cultures, the stronger our community will be.” Rabbi Blum has worked closely with the South Nepean Muslim Association to present workshops of interfaith acceptance. They also have an outreach program where they visit schools through a program operated with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. “What we do is simple,” he said. “We fight hate with love. We focus on what we have in common, and on what we have to do to make the community a better place.” Thanks to Rabbi Blum and those who follow his lead, our community is a better place. And no matter what our own faiths may be, we are all blessed to have him in our community. BARRHAVEN

Misinformation driven by disinformation

Are you even in the least bit surprised that Dictionary.com named ‘misinformation’ as its 2018 word of the year? We seem to live in a world of misinformation, which is not to be confused with disinformation. And we live in a world of disinformation, too. Is there a difference between the two? There is a big difference, as one is intentional and one is not. Although the terms are not interchangeable, one can become the other. Misinformation edged out selfmade as the Dictionary.com word of the year. Self-made surged in lookups after the publication of a Forbes cover story calling Kylie Jenner a “self-made” billionaire. A New York Times exposé about the true source of President Donald Trump’s wealth also brought attention to the word. So it’s no surprise that Trump is the first person who comes to mind when we think of misinformation or any of the related words that come to mind, thanks to the steep slope of doubleblack diamond moguls that would be his presidency. It’s incredible when you think that an entire lexicon around ‘fake news’ has emerged, just as words like selfie and meme and emoji didn’t exist when the decade began. Dictionary.com defines misinformation as “false information that is spread, regardless of whether there is intent to mislead.” They add that the recent explosion of misinformation and the growing vocabulary we use to understand it have come up again and again in the work of their lexicographers. Related words and terms that have also been added and updated include disinformation, echo chamber, confirmation bias, filter bubble, conspiracy theory, fake news, post-fact, post-truth, influencer and gatekeeper. The difference between misinformation and disinformation is that disinformation is deliberately misleading or biased information. It can be manipulated narrative or facts. It can also be propaganda. Because the social media is the wild west of rumours and misinformation, it is easy to put disinformation out there. If you are sharing disinformation not knowing that it is false, that would make what you are sharing misinformation. Misinformation, as a word, has been around since the 16th Century. But just in the last decade did social media give it the tools to dominate our culture. Got it? Clear as Kanye West’s logic. Facebook is not the only social media platform under fire in this debate, but it seems to be the vortex of it. Dictionary.com said that critics pointed to the revelation that Cambridge Analytica had harvested personal data on Facebook to create in-depth psychological profiles of individuals, which were used to influence the Brexit vote and the US election. Twitter cracked down on millions of accounts that did not represent real human users for spreading misinformation. And let’s get back to Trump. In early November, fact-checkers from the Washington Post shared their record of all the false or misleading claims President Trump has made since be-

coming president. As of the time of that report, the count was at 6,420, an average of about 10 false or misleading claims a day. Dictiinary.com lists actions we can take to fight misinformation, even as individuals: - we can improve our own media literacy by carefully considering our sources of information - we can fact-check the stories we encounter on social media before believing them - we can commit to reading entire articles, and not just headlines, before sharing them FROM THE - we can point others to fact-checking resources when we see misinformation spreading Dictinary.com also provided a glossary of terms reby Jeff Morris lated to misinformation and disinformation: Post-truth: relating to or existing in an environment in which facts are viewed as irrelevant, or less important than personal beliefs and opinions, and emotional appeals are used to influence public opinion. Fake news: false news stories, often of a sensational nature, created to be widely shared or distributed for the purpose of generating revenue, or promoting or discrediting a public figure, political movement, company, etc. Bubble: a zone of cognitive or psychological isolation, in which one’s preexisting ideas are reinforced through interactions with like-minded people or those with similar social identities. Filter bubble: a phenomenon that limits an individual’s exposure to a full spectrum of news and other information on the internet by algorithmically prioritizing content that matches a user’s demographic profile and online history or excluding content that does not. Echo chamber: an environment in which the same opinions are repeatedly voiced and promoted, so that people are not exposed to opposing views. Confirmation bias: Psychology. bias that results from the tendency to process and analyze information in such a way that it supports one’s preexisting ideas and convictions. Influencer: a person who has the power to influence many people, as through social media or traditional media. Gatekeeper: a person or thing that controls access, as to information, often acting as an arbiter of quality or legitimacy. All of these words entered our lexicon because of social media. Even though we are in print, I’m sure there are some of you who have accused us as being gatekeepers or purveyors of fake news or misinformation, or for being published in an echo chamber. We have never used your readership to influence the Brexit vote or the US Presidential election, and we have never sold your profile data. All we will give you this year is something you will never hear in a Trump presser. Local news (not fake), information (not dis- or mis-), and a sense of belonging to our great community. That’s our bubble.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Ka Familia makes Christmas special for the elderly and those in need

Dhom Rosete, a five-star chef and the owner of Ka Familia Restaurant at Strandherd and Longfields, served up a Christmas Eve buffet for those in need and the elderly in Barrhaven. Mike Carroccetto photo course in Wales. And while he is modest about having prepared food for the Queen, he is passionate about his cooking and his restaurant. When he moved to Canada, Rosete decided to move to Barrhaven. He had family

and friends already living in Ottawa. He quickly made a name for himself in Ottawa. He would become executive chef at the Lord Lansdowne, a high-end retirement home known for its excellent food. As a five-star chef, Rosete

Barrhaven Village Square

helped solidify that reputation. Opening his own restaurant two years ago was a dream come true for him. While he says his restaurant needs support from the community to stay alive, he is thankful for the support he has received.

“We did this as a family to give thanks to the community,” said during his Christmas Eve buffet. “My brother is involved here, and my girlfriend and my daughter are here to help. There were also a lot of volunteers who helped us out.”

Rosete said. “I love this community and it has been my home for the past 10 years.” After spending 26 years as a restauranteur and chef in England and Wales, Rosete came to Canada a decade ago. His restaurant is not only unique to Barrhaven, but to Ottawa. “Filipino food is a natural centre of fusion to many different cultures,” he said. “There is often an aspect of counterpoint in each dish where contrasting flavours such as sweet and salty are paired together to create delicious combinations. It offers a bold combination of flavours influenced by Spain and Asia.” Rosete was born in the Philippines and spent his childhood there. He moved to London, England when he was 18 years old and studied the culinary arts. He would eventually become a five-star chef and become a restauranteur. Before moving to Canada, he owned a restaurant at a golf

For people in Barrhaven who were looking for the true meaning of Christmas, they found it on Strandherd Road at Ka Familia. Dhom Rosete, the owner of Ka Familia, the popular Filipino Fusion Restaurant, served up a free Christmas dinner buffet for those living alone, the elderly, and the homeless in Barrhaven. And Rosete, who once cooked for Queen Elizabeth II in England, spent Christmas Eve cooking for those in need in Barrhaven. “This was for anyone who was not able to enjoy or cook a Christmas dinner, or anyone with a place to go for a Christmas dinner,” Rosete said. The dinner included traditional turkey dishes and glazed ham, as well as some of Rosete’s signature Filipino dishes. There was also a wide range of desserts. “This was about giving back to the community and giving back to Barrhaven,”

A new year will bring new accomplishments

By Jim Watson, Mayor, City of Ottawa

It is with a great sense of pride that I look back on the incredible accomplishments we’ve made over the last few years, and with enthusiasm as I look ahead to the next four. In the last Term of Council, we saw the implementation of the Ottawa River Action Plan, the opening of the Innovation Centre at Bayview Yards, the opening of the new Ottawa Art Gallery, significant progress on Phase 1 of LRT, record investments in pedestrian and cycling infrastructure and an incredible year 2017, during which we celebrated Canada’s 150th birthday. 2019 promises to be an important and exciting year in our city, as we see the beginning, continuation and completion of several major city-building projects. We begin the year with the tabling and adoption of the 2019 City of Ottawa Budget. I encourage all residents to get involved with the budget process and share their ideas on how we can make Ottawa an even more affordable and caring city, by emailing me at Jim.Watson@ Ottawa.ca. You can also visit www.ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/

budget/understanding-yourcity-budget for information on how your City Budget works. The Confederation Line of our O-Train LRT System will be up and running later this year. The 12.5 km line boasts 12 beautiful stations – from Tunney’s Pasture in the west end to Blair in the east end - and with its 2.5 km underground tunnel downtown, LRT will significantly reduce congestion in the downtown core and change the way people move and travel in Ottawa. Shortly after the historic launch of the Confederation Line, we will sign the contract and begin construction on Stage 2 of LRT. Stage 2 will bring light rail farther west to Algonquin College, Bayshore Shopping Centre and Moodie Drive, farther east to Place d’Orléans and Trim Road, and farther south to Riverside South, with a link to the Ottawa International Airport. We have also completed the Environmental Assessments to bring LRT to Kanata/Stittsville and started the Environmental Assessment to bring LRT to Barrhaven in the third phase of LRT. In 2019, we will also make significant progress on

the design of the new Ottawa Central Library. The consortium of Diamond Schmitt Canada and KWC Architects has been chosen by the City as the preferred proponent to build the new joint Ottawa Public Library/Library and Archives Canada facility. This award-winning local Ottawa-based firm is behind many great projects, including the recently renovated National Arts Centre. We will finish constructing the Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel, which is the key component of the Ottawa River Action Plan, a project that will protect our waterways for future generations by limiting pollutants from entering the Ottawa River. And this fall, we will connect Old Ottawa South and Old Ottawa East with the Flora Footbridge, giving pedestrians and cyclists a new way to get to and from the Main Street, the Glebe, Lansdowne Park and TD Place in a rapid, safe and pleasant way. We have many busy months ahead of us, and I am eager to collaborate with my Council colleagues to ensure that we continue to move our city forward. Let’s get to work.

“Other than buying a home, buying an auto is the next largest purchase most people will have at any given time,” MacDonald said. “But for years, people had to go elsewhere for that purchase, and those dollars were leaving our community rather than being invested back into Barrhaven.” Myers Barrhaven Toyota at 4123 Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven carries a full line of Toyota vehicles, including the popular Corolla, RAV4, Highlander, Camry and more.

In the past, there weren’t many options for Barrhaven residents to buy cars locally. Surgenor Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd. on Prince of Wales, was around for years as Jack May Pontiac Buick. In fact, Jack May was there as a dealer long before Barrhaven grew eastward toward the dealership. But in the past year, Barrhaven has become a destination for car buyers. “It is certainly something that has helped the local economy,” said Jason MacDonald, a Barrhaven businessman and realtor who is the President of the Barrhaven BIA. MacDonald said that the addition of the car dealers and the emergence of the “auto row” off Strandherd Drive near Costco has been a welcome addition to the local business community.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Widening of Strandherd Drive in West Barrhaven to begin in 2019

Happy New Year Barrhaven, I hope you found time for family, friends and some down time. I have no doubt 2019 is going to be a very busy year and I am counting on you to play a role. Construction work on the Strandherd Drive widening begins. Expect to see a detour from Myers Toyota to west of the Royal Oak. The detour will be on the west side of existing Strandherd. This work is required in order to start work on the overpass at the VIA crossing. McKenna Casey will be closed as well. Next year Strandherd will be widened from COSTCO to Myers (Dealership Way at Kennevale). An east bound turn lane onto Borrisokane will be built. I have been trying to get the intersection completed in 2019 at Fraser Fields/Chapman Mills and Strandherd but am having

little success. I have asked for costing for a temporary traffic light. We all know access to Strandherd at this location is difficult indeed. New homes are being built on the south side of Strandherd in Minto’s Harmony and a new French Public School at the corner of Chapman Mills and Strandherd will open in August 2020. This $90-plus million project will take a few years to build. In the meantime you can see the chaos that follows all the road “interruptions”. Case in point was the recent closing of Jockvale Road between Greenbank and Longfields. Thanks to the concerted ef-

forts of City staff, the contractor and Minto (Susan Murphy) for their huge efforts to complete the job ahead of expected timelines. Have a look at the Cambrian Road situation. You will note a parallel route has been completed. It’s not pretty (but then neither is Cambrian Road in its current condition) but it is necessary. Staff wanted to detour all 30k+ of you south to Barnsdale. C’mon, that’s just crazy! I want to thank Taggart on behalf of Mattamy for their resolve to make it work. I think I told you all that Greenbank Road Bridge will close completely in July and August 2019. Work will begin in May. Because the realignment of Greenbank Road has been pushed back, work is necessary on this pitifully inadequate “gateway” to Half Moon Bay and Minto Recreation Centre. I

have asked staff to invest in a multi-use pathway along Greenbank to tie into this project. Around this City we invest in what’s called “complete streets” whenever we rip up roads to lay new pipes, etc. We make sure the hierarchy of transportation modes are completed during these construction projects. Of course this means cycling and walking as well. Neither pedestrians nor cyclists are served at this location in the current state so I have asked staff to develop a cost analysis to provide safe passage. Greenbank Road from the bridge to Cambrian is a mess. Traffic counts are very high and while I know why we put the 4-way stop in at Half Moon Bay Road and Greenbank, I think we will have to remove it. I know that this will be an inconvenience for those living to the west and east of Greenbank Road but it is

something that must be considered. Another consideration would be a temporary traffic light. I will check for a cost. I want to thank Tanya Thomson and her TEAM who have offered to take over Ken Ross Park’s outdoor skating rink. Ken Ross Park is our largest Barrhaven Park. It’s important to have a rink here. Thanks to Tanya and all those maintaining outdoor rinks for our Barrhaven community! Save the date for a very important and informative Barrhaven Transportation meeting. January 29th is the date and Cedarhill Golf is the location. Cedarhill has lots of parking available which is never the case at the Walter Baker Sports Centred. Check out the storey boards between 6&7 and stay for the presentation at 7. It’s important that you attend as we start work

on the Transportation Master Plan and the Official Plan....”Move Barrhaven Avancer”. Plans are shaping up for Barrhaven’s downtown and I am really excited. Minto and Richcraft have hired a great designer and I will get a peak at the preliminary design recommendations in January. I can’t wait to show you when we can. Parking at Citigate Mall on Strandherd is poor at best particularly near the new Montana, East Side Mario and all the new businesses nearby. I have a few ideas... stay tuned! My thanks go to OC Transpo for our new Route 275 serving Stonebridge, Minto Rec and Half Moon Bay. I hope this addition improves the commute from over 30k residents south of the Jock River. That’s it for this week. Take care everyone.

Flu shot best way to protect yourself from influenza in Barrhaven By Preet Sidhu Longfields Pharmacy

As Barrhaven grows, so does your risk of contacting the flu virus. And the best way to prevent getting the flu is to get a flu shot. Influenza (the flu) is a respiratory infection caused by the Influenza A or B virus. It is very contagious and can spread quickly and easily. Prior, we thought flu is spread easily from person to person by coughing, sneezing (large droplets), or touching contaminated surfaces. A more recent study of 2018 provides evidence that the fine aerosol droplets released during normal exhalation also transmit flu (shed virus). Before you even know you are sick, you can pass the flu on to others. More than 12,000 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths in Canada occur every year. Both children and adults may be infected with the influenza virus. Individuals at risk of serious complications include young children, older adults, pregnant women, and people with ongoing health conditions such as asthma or diabetes. The flu is marked by the sudden onset of a fever, headache (can be severe), cough, chest discomfort (dry cough can be severe), sore throat, stuffy, runny nose, body aches and pains (can be severe), bedridden & weakness(you may feel extremely exhausted). Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may also occur, especially in young children. It is important to distinguish between influenza A and influenza B strains, as they have different implications in older adults. Influenza B viruses circulate widely among hu-

mans only. Influenza A viruses circulate among both humans and many animal populations. As a result, the virus is much more virulent and has a much greater impact in adults over the age of 65. Flu season this year is about four weeks ahead of previous years. Influenza remains a serious public health concern, especially for adults over the age of 65. While adults over 65 represent just 15% of the Canadian population, they experience 65% of influenza-related hospitalizations and 85% of influenza-related deaths. This is due to a natural phenomenon in the aging of the immune system, due to which older adults have a heightened susceptibility to influenza-related complications. Aging immune system means lower immune response to vaccinations therefore older population responds less effectively to current standard flu shot and can result in an increased incidence and severity of infectious diseases. To boost vaccine effectiveness among older adults, novel vaccination products have become available such as Fluzone High-Dose. For 65 years of age and older, the high-dose Fluzone vaccine is available. it contains four times the antigen of a standard-dose influenza vaccine (60 ug versus 15 ug per dose). It protects against two influenza A viral strains and one influenza B viral strain. Currently just one high-dose, Fluzone High-Dose is available for 65 and over at no charge through your doctor’s office. In addition, ongoing medical conditions in adults over 65 places them at an even further risk of acquiring an influenza

infection. Moreover, influenza worsens morbidity and mortality of exis­ting illnesses. Even in healthy older adults without ongoing medical conditions, influenza can lead to new infections, such as secon­dary bacterial pneumonia or heart related complications such as heart attack or stroke. The high burden of influenza on seniors can also be attributed to factors such as lack of accessi­ bility to vaccination among home-bound seniors, and impaired cognition affecting vaccine decision-making. As well, low immunization rates among those who come into contact with seniors, such as grandchildren and other family members, play a role in making seniors more susceptible to infection. The flu shot has benefited millions of Canadians since 1946. It’s a simple action that can prevent complications & save lives. There are benefits of influenza vaccination to support health and independent living among older adults. Influenza season typically runs from mid-October to the end of April. It’s not late if you did not get your flu shot this season. It takes 2 weeks to be effective. To be healthy and spend quality time with your family during this Christmas, get your flu shot if you havn’t done so. At Longfields Pharmacy, we provide every season at no cost Flu shot to 5 years of age and older. For children under the age of five, please speak to your primary healthcare provider about vaccination. For 65 and over, please check with your family doctor. Prevention is the best key!
