New Jersey Devils draft local minor hockey prodigy Graeme Clarke of the 67s becomes ninth Barrhaven player drafted into NHL

By Jeff Morris VANCOUVER – The first thing Barrhaven’s Graeme Clarke told reporters in Vancouver last Saturday was that he “was on Cloud 9.”. Clarke, who was a minor hockey prodigy during his career in the Nepean Minor Hockey Association, was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the third round of the NHL Draft last Saturday. Clarke spent the last two seasons with the Ottawa 67s in the Ontario Hockey League. During the 2018-19 season, the 5’11”, 175-pound winger had 23 goals and 11 assists for 34 points in 55 games. During the playoffs, Clarke added another seven goals and seven assists in 18 games. An entourage of family members made their way to Vancouver last week for the draft. It was an exciting day for Clarke, his family, and for Barrhaven, as well as for fans

of the Ottawa 67s. “To have the kind of support I have had over the years has been amazing,” Clarke said moments after being drafted. “In fact, I can feel my phone buzzing in my pocket right now. I’ve got so many friends back home that I’ve got to go thank for helping me get here, because without them, I wouldn’t be here.” Clarke got the opportunity to play junior hockey for the team he grew up cheering on every Friday night as a kid. The 67s had an historic season and made a deep run into the playoffs. Although he has been a big scorer throughout his career, Clarke took on a different role with the 67s. With veteran forwards Ty Felhaber, Sasha Chmelevski, Austen Keating, Marco Rossi, Kody Clark and Samuel Bitten chewing up so many premier minutes and scoring chances, Clarke found himself being more of a role player and contributing in

ways other than scoring. “There was definitely a learning curve for me this year,” Clarke said. “There were some ups and downs and sometimes I wasn’t playing that high in the line-up because of how deep we were. But I think I learned from that and well-rounded my game and by the end of the year, I was getting good minutes and the coach trusted me more out there. It was a big learning year for me, and next year I’m hoping it will be a big breakout year for me.” While Clarke said he doesn’t know much about New Jersey, he is excited about being a part of an organization that has a fast and exciting team. “I like to watch them on TV,” Clarke said. “They’re fast and exciting, and it looks like a great program. I can’t wait to get to New Jersey and get started.”

Founded in Calgary, Alberta more than four decades ago, the Canadian-made franchise is known for its quick, healthy and delicious meal options inspired by the tastes, sights and

Edo Japan is equipped with an undoubtedly successful business model across the country and a robust expansion plan, most recently focusing on expansion within the eastern markets. The franchise model has been a pillar of success offering extensive training and coaching, a system-wide marketing program, regional operations support and more. With its continued plans for growth, Edo Japan welcomes franchisees and business partners for the Ontario market. “The opening of our inaugural Ottawa location is a significant achievement for our eastern expansion,” said

David Minnett, President and CEO, Edo Japan. “With such a strong footprint in Western Canada, we are humbled by the warm welcome Edo Japan has already received in the Ontario market and look forward to continuing this momentum as we invite Ottawa residents to enjoy our signature offerings.” Situated in Barrhaven, Edo Japan’s first Ottawa location will be operated by franchise veterans Cong Le, Don Pham, Huyen Le and Alan Huynh. Originally from Edo Japan’s birthplace in Alberta, they bring diverse experience with them having worked with Edo Japan in multiple capacities. Specifically, Cong started with

Edo Japan in 2005 and has since gone on to work for three different locations across Alberta, as well as the company’s

head office, before investing in his own restaurant with the brand.

Get Swabbed

www.janharder.ca jan.harder@ottawa.ca

After taking an interest to a presentation in class, grade 10 John McCrae student Keegan Robinson knew he had to do something to encourage people to get swabbed. Keegan says he’s always been interested in science and biology, but it wasn’t until a researcher from the Canadian Blood Society came into class that he started to have an interest in stem cells. So he decided to do something to help the cause. He started a get swabbed campaign at school, with over 40 students signing up to be a part of it. “I felt like I could actually do something to help the issue,” he said. “I could say that I actually made an impact. I got 42 new people to sign up on the registry who wouldn’t do it otherwise.” It only took a few seconds, and it could save a life. Anyone 17 or over could get swabbed in an effort to be a match for someone in need of a stem cell transplant. As part of the project, Keegan went around to multiple classes to shed light on the important topic, and also hung up posters around the school. He also tried to reach out to minority groups, who are communities who don’t donate as much. Keegan also got in touch with Magic 100 radio host Stuntman Stu, who was the recipient of a bone marrow transplant which saved his life. “When I was on twitter, I reached out to him about doing a podcast and he was really supportive about me doing it,” Keegan said. “He came in and we did a podcast over Skype.” Anyone between the ages of 17 and 35 who want to donate stem cells can find out more information on the Canadian Blood Services website.

Representing Barrhaven at the Cappies

Multiple High Schools in Barrhaven took park in the annual Cappies event this year, with Mother Teresa, Longfields and St. Joes going on to be nominated in different categories. Their work was recognized at the annual gala held at the National Arts Centre on June 9th, where Longfields students Ben Langile, Rejessean Sanssasy, Broghan Gauthier, and Zach Kayed won a Cappie for Sound in a musical. Grade 12 Longfields student Ben Langile has been a part of Cappies for the past four years, and has accumulated seven nominations and three wins over that period — two for sound and one for special effects. “Working on The Addams family was an incredible experience as I was one of the leads in the show as well as the lead sound designer,” he said. “I have a real passion for audio and am going to a private college for audio engineering next year.” Ben says that being a part of the Cappies has motivated him to get into the audio field, and says it’s one of the main reasons why he’s going to a private college for audio engineering in the fall. “Winning a Cappie for sound the last two years has been really encouraging and proved to me that my work is something to be proud of,” Ben said. “One thing I’ve really learned about awards ceremonies like the Cappies is that you have to come into with a mindset that no matter, you put on a good show and poured a lot of time and effort into it.” “Winning is nice,” he added,” but really, taking part in theater and even being nominated is an honor and a really good time.” Students from St. Joes also won awards in two categories: they were Sound in a Play and Stage Management and Crew.

Giving Back to the Community

Teachers are always trying to teach their students about kindness, and are always trying to find new ways to incorporate it into the curriculum. For the last few weeks, students in Miss Basten’s grade four class at St. Luke’s have been collecting food as a part of their Language and Religion units. This week they loaded up a car full of food, all of which was donated to the Barrhaven Food Cupboard which has just opened up its new location in the Walter Baker Centre. The new space allows the food cupboard to keep the majority of their stock on hand, and also allows them to offer a grocery store style shopping experience for their customers.

Helping the Environment

For the fifth consecutive year, Cedarview Middle School received a good sticker from the Ontario Eco Schools program. The EarthBUDs group as they are called, was awarded the sticker for their environmental accomplishments over the past year. Thank you for helping keep our planet green!

Celebrating a milestone

The rain didn’t dampen the spirits for hundreds of people who attended the annual year end barbecue at Barrhaven Public School on Wednesday, June 19th. It was also an opportunity to welcome the new kindergarten students to the school, and give them a rundown as to what their days will look like. They learned about what an agenda is, what types of things to bring for lunches, and all the things that are needed to get through the day. The students in MFI5 also enjoyed a Short Story Cafe on the afternoon of June 20th. The children read their stories aloud, enjoyed great background jazz music and some delectable treats.

Ontario Liberal leadership candidate Coteau makes stop in Barrhaven By Charlie Senack

The race is on to find a new Ontario Liberal party leader, with one of the candidates stopping in Barrhaven on Wednesday, June 19. Michael Coteau stopped by the Walter Baker Centre to talk to a packed room of close to 30 local Liberals about his vision for Ontario — which included a better healthcare system, more job opportunities and nicer communities. “I want to build an Ontario where a child has the best opportunity to learn… to be the smartest, healthiest, and feel the safest,” he said. “Because of that we will see a stronger economy because we will have less wasted human potential, we will have better doctors (and) we will have more decency.”

Coteau has been the MPP for the Toronto riding of Don Valley East since 2011, and served in four different cabinet posts — the latest being Minister of Community and Social Services from January to June 2018. That position was most recently held by Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod before last week’s cabinet shuffle. The topic of Coteau’s former ministry came up multiple times during his campaign stop in Barrhaven, where he also talked about his disappointment with the Ford government. He made reference to cuts that were made this week, including to OSAP Services, the Champlain LHIN, and to the education system. “That’s just in the last two days, that’s not in the last two

years or two months,” the Don Valley East MPP said. “We need to put a stop to this stuff. Doug Ford and the Conservatives have cut around 3-4 million dollars in social services and social services in the province, and pushed all that money towards corporations for tax breaks.” Coteau is one of only seven remaining Liberals MPP’s at Queens Park, and decided to run for the leadership race because he wants to bring decency back to politics. He plans to challenge the Liberal party can caucus as well as Ontatrians. Three candidates have so far put their name forward for the leadership race which will be held on March 7, 2020. Until then, Ottawa South MPP John Fraser will continue to serve as interim leader.

McCrae students hold protest over plan for portables By Charlie Senack Shovels are expected to break ground on John McCrae’s three new classroom portables sometime this week, but students aren’t letting it happen without a protest. In late May, the parent council received word of plans to place four new portables on the school’s track and sports field, which included losing use of the end zone at one end of the field. A heated meeting convinced the Ottawa Carleton District School Board to build only three portables on the field instead, but that would still mean the track would have to be shortened from a 400 m track to 360 m at the school known for its High Performance Athletes program. On Friday, June 21, a group of about 20 students gathered to protest the board’s decision, trying to convince them to find other alternative solutions instead. Some of those alternative options include placing the portables in the teachers parking lot while allowing teachers to park at nearby Walter Baker Centre, or placing them on a section of yard which neighbours Jockvale Public School. “I’m really involved in all sports and there is a High Performance Athlete program here

CHEO to get six-storey children’s treatment centre

Ontario is committing $105 million over six years to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) for the construction of a new six-storey children’s treatment centre (approx. 234,440 sq. ft.) in Ottawa. CHEO’s children’s treatment centre is a leader in eastern Ontario in delivering services for children with special needs. The agency delivers autism services, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, audiology, speech language

pathology, social work, psychology, and physician services and therapeutic recreation. The centre provides these services in eight locations across the region, which makes it difficult for service recipients and providers to coordinate services and to give children and youth supports as they grow into adulthood. Multiple locations create wait times and program delivery is inefficient. A new, multi-purpose children’s treatment centre

will improve the delivery of rehabilitation services and provide all-encompassing supports for families of children with special needs. CHEO will have the opportunity to reduce wait times for services, address capacity issues and optimize program efficiencies. The new facility will make services easier to access and help build and improve the range of services for young people with special needs at every stage of a child’s development. Other benefits include in-

creased front-line staffing by redirecting duplicated facility costs spent on multiple locations; more coordinated services through a “hub” of care; and clinical services under one roof, so parents of kids with complex needs have access to coordinated, specialized care. CHEO’s children’s treatment centre is one of 20 children’s treatment centres in Ontario that receive funding from the Government of Ontario. Provincially funded ser-

vices and supports for children and youth with special needs are delivered through children’s treatment centres that provide a range of programs and services. Included among these programs are the Ontario Autism Program, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and speech and language pathology; respite services, coordinated service planning; and services for children and youth with multiple and/or complex special needs, including Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

To further support children with special needs, Ontario is investing in the construction of the Grandview Children’s Centre in Ajax and the Children’s Treatment Centre at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) campus in Ottawa. These investments will reduce wait times for services, address capacity issues and optimize program efficiencies in these centres and reduce travel times for families having to visit multiple sites.

MacLeod announces funding to combat sex trafficking Ontario is protecting what matters most by investing up to $271,000 in funding for Voice Found, an Ottawa-based organization that supports survivors of sex trafficking. Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services, announced a $271,000 investment in funding for Voice Found, an Ottawabased organization that supports survivors of sex traf-

ficking. The funding is part of the province’s $180 million investment in violence prevention and sexual assault support in this year’s budget. MacLeod made the announcement at Voice Found, to discuss what more can be done to provide support for survivors so they get the help they need. She also said the province is looking at new approaches to combat traf-

ficking, support survivors and hold offenders accountable. “Sex trafficking is a crisis throughout Ontario, in our biggest cities and smallest towns,” said Minister MacLeod. “We are taking action to end these crimes by shining a light on it and engaging with people who know firsthand the devastation it causes to women, young girls and other vulnerable

people.” The government has begun a series of roundtable discussions, chaired by Parliamentary Assistant Belinda Karahalios and Mississauga Centre MPP Natalia Kusendova, on sex trafficking with survivors, Indigenous partners, law enforcement and frontline service providers. The roundtables will help create a more responsive and supportive system for

survivors of violence and trafficking, and change attitudes that give rise to violence against women. “Our government is fighting to end sex trafficking,” added MacLeod. “We know we have a big challenge ahead, and that government cannot do it alone, but I am confident that by raising awareness and working together across ministries, across sectors and across jurisdic-

tions, we can do more to stop these crimes and support survivors.” More than two-thirds of police-reported human trafficking violations in Canada occur in Ontario. According to police-reported incidents, human trafficking has increased by 284 per cent over the last five years. The average age of entry into sex trafficking is 13 years old.

Stay Safe Around Backyard Pools.

Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition is encouraging residents to remember to practice water safety during the summer months. It is important to remember that drowning deaths are preventable. Residents who intend to be around backyard pools this summer are encouraged to follow these tips: Stay within arms’ reach of your child at all times in and around the water. Be free of all distractions while supervising children who are enjoying water-related activities. Ensure weak or non-swimmers wear a life jacket or personal flotation device (PFD). Enroll yourself and your children in swimming lessons. Take a first aid and CPR course. Install fencing around all pools, measuring at least five feet or 1.5 metres high and include a self-latching, self-closing gate with a lock.

Learn how to reduce the risk of Thefts in Vehicles in time for summer! The Ottawa Police Service would like to remind the public that, with summer just around the corner, so is the risk of theft from vehicles. Residents are reminded to remove anything of value from their vehicle. “Thieves typically look for an unlocked or locked vehicle showing valuables, and once they gain entry, they go through the entire car, including the trunk,” said Cst. Stephanie Lemieux, Centretown Community Police Officer. “It isn’t enough to hide items in the console or under the car seats because the thieves are just that thorough.” In the event you notice someone acting suspicious around parked vehicles or if you see someone trying car doors - please call police and report it. Make the right

call. “Even if your car is broken into and nothing is taken, it still needs to be reported to police,” added Cst. Lemieux. Find out more on how to reduce the risk of being the victim of a theft from vehicle with our Safety and Crime Prevention Programs on our website at ottawapolice.ca, or contact your local community police officer for more information. Download an AVR (All Valuables Removed) card to display in your parked vehicle. The cards are displayed by vehicle owners on the inside of the driver’s side window to display the message, “All Valuables Removed” - letting would-be-thieves know not to bother searching the vehicle and alerting others to take the same precautions. Anyone with information regarding a theft from a vehicle or any other crime is asked to call the Police Reporting Unit at 613-236-1222, extension 7300. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers, toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or by downloading the Ottawa Police app.

From tears to cheers for MacLeod

Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod has literally gone from the Ministry of Tears to the Ministry of Cheers. That’s the way she is reacting to the recent cabinet shuffle in the Ford Government. The media in Ottawa immediately and unfairly jumped all over MacLeod, headlining her shift in portfolio as a demotion. From talking to other MPPs in Eastern Ontario, MacLeod had far too much on her plate and was spread to thin. We see the shuffle as an opportunity to spread out some of her workload. In June, 2018, MacLeod was named Minister of Community and Social Services, which also included the portfolios of women’s issues, immigration and anti-racism. Earlier this month, it was announced that MacLeod would be changing roles, and has now been named Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. It’s a portfolio she wanted, and it is one she is thrilled to have. “I’m excited to be appointed to the important role of Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport,” MacLeod said in a twitter post shortly after the news broke. “After all, I come from a city of festivals! I especially look forward to raising awareness of Rowan’s Law and presenting Citizenship Awards.” Speaking to reporters at Queens Park shortly after the cabinet shuffle, Ontario Premier Doug Ford praised MacLeod for the work she accomplished under the community and social services portfolio during the Conservatives first year in office. During her time as Minister of Community and Social Services, MacLeod was tasked with some controversial challenges including the autism portfolio. She faced countless protests and even faced threats. MacLeod had to be protected by Ontario Provincial Police for a short period of time. The woman in question for uttering many of the threats has been charged, and is currently in the provincial court system. Still, MacLeod says she’s proud of the work she was able to accomplish throughout the past year, and says she will continue to advocate for women and girls. “Over the past year, I’ve heard from those with lived experiences about how we can best support our province’s children,” she said. “We’re beginning consultations on child welfare, we’re enhancing the Ontario Autism Program and I’ve been proud to stand with LGBT2SQ children and youth.” Those were statements the Premier echoed, saying that the autism portfolio remains a high priority. “I’ve always said autism isn’t the largest file, but it’s the most sensitive and I’m very passionate about it,” he said. “We are going to make sure that we continue on with a great plan that Lisa put in place. We have a committee of over 20 experts now, and I look forward to making sure that we support the parents of children with autism.” Regardless of how we think MacLeod did with her old portfolio, she will shine in her new role.

A great Canadian toast for Canada Day

Is it just me, or is Canada Day just getting to be bigger and better and more important to everyone as each and every year goes by? Our national pride is growing by leaps and bounds. Right now, as we are still hung over from the celebration of the Toronto Raptors’ championship, it’s at an all time high. Let’s face it. How many Canadians who had never given a flying rat’s arse about basketball for their entire lives were suddenly cheering, drinking, having parties, screaming at the TV when Kyle Lowry is called for a block when it was clearly a charge, and planning to name their next child Kawhi? For me, being Canadian really hit me when I celebrated my first Canada Day living in the U.S. I worked as a brand manager for Pinnacle in Dallas. It was the first Canada Day I celebrated as a U.S. resident, and it made me very aware of why I loved Canada so much. Yes, I loved America, and I loved living and working there, but being Canadian was something that was special. Have you ever thought about the things that we love about being Canadian the most? There are the predictable answers people will give. We’re politer than Americans. I don’t really believe that. Everyone admires Justin Trudeau and Donald Trump is a dangerous idiot. Well, Justin Trudeau has done some idiotic things, too, but at least he’s not dangerous. We have better gun controls than the U.S., and we have lower homicide and incarceration rates than the U.S. We can smoke weed legally and most Americans can’t. Canada allowed and recognized gay marriages when the United States did not. Do you see a pattern here? Discussions of what defines us Canadians are always immediate comparisons to Americans and the United States. I remember falling into that trap when I worked at Pinnacle. Tony Kreich, a good friend and coworker who grew up in San Diego, was chirping me one day about being Canadian. By the way, because so many of us grew up plying hockey and living in a hockey culture, Canadians can chirp with anyone. I was on the phone with Tony, who had dialed my extension. “What have Canadians ever done, anyway?” I gave the answer true Canadian would. “Un, your speaking to me on a phone. The telephone was invested by Alexander Graham Bell, a Canadian.” Tony gave a typical American response. “Oh, big deal. We would have thought of it about 10 minutes later, so who cares?” Since then, I have always thought about cool things about Canada and Canadians – far beyond we have universal health care. It helped me every time I had to act as tour guide when our marketing team came up to Canada for a trade show.

As soon as I would get our rental car, and then explain to everyone how we buy gas per litre and that the speed limit is in kilometres, I would head to Tim Hortons. Greg, who was my boss in Dallas, loved the kilometre discussion. “That was like the best practical joke we ever played on Canada,” he would say, laughing. “Yeah, sure, we’ll switch to the metric system. You guys FROM THE go first and then we’ll follow right behind.” I actually think that’s how it went down. Back then, however, Tim Hortons sold the best by Jeff Morris Nanaimo Bars in Canada. All it took was a Nanaimo Bar, a Coffee Crisp, an Aero bar and a box of Smarties to make them fall in love with Canada. And they hadn’t even tried the ketchup chips or poutine yet. I couldn’t help but be really Canadian and feed them some typical Canadian BS just to yank their chains. “I would take you to Niagara Falls, but they haven’t turned the falls back on yet,” I told them in a March trip. “The falls are still frozen over and shut down for the winter.” And then on the way from Toronto to Montreal, we passed the giant apple on the 401 near Trenton. “This is actually the birthplace of the world’s first apple,” I told them. “The seeds for the tree were developed by a Canadian scientist named Hank Apple.” And they were mesmerized by our coloured money. “The $10 bill is my favourite,” I would tell them. “Gene Wilder is one of the most famous Canadians of all time, so that’s why he’s on the $10 bill.” Gene Wilder is actually from Milwaukee, but to a carload of Texans, Milwaukee was ‘darn near in Canada anyway.’ I told them how 80 per cent of the world’s polar bear population was in Canada. Yet, one of the guys on our team went on to work for Canada Dry’s marketing department in the US. Soon after that, Canada Dry came out with a commercial with penguins lined up on a snowy hill at a Canada Dry ginger ale vending machine. I lost it all over him. “Didn’t you learn anything from me? Penguins are at the South Pole! Canada has the North Pole! Aieee.” On our way back to Texas, I asked my friend Bryan what he liked best about Canada. “The toast,” he said immediately. “Y’all had the best toast I have ever had. If a Canadian restaurant ever opens up in Dallas, I will be the first one in line for the toast.” And he didn’t even vote for Trump. Happy Canada Day!

Domino’s stays ahead of the curve in digital marketing to its customers

In a world filled with more and more options and changing platforms, a simple choice for a Barrhaven family, such as where to order pizza from, can get overwhelming.

Located on Fallowfield Road, between Woodroffe Ave. and Greenbank Rd., Domino’s is never far away. Stop by for a made to order pizza to enjoy for lunch at the nearby Mulligan Park, or order pizza delivery to your home after catch-

ing the big game at the Bob Stephen Football Field. No matter what the occasion is, Domino’s prides itself on providing you with a delicious, worry-free meal. Domino’s Pizza carries a large number of products for you to choose from. They have Feast pizzas, pasta bowls, specialty chicken, bread sides, chicken wings, refreshments, and even dessert.

While customer service, quality food and efficiency has made Domino’s in Bar-

rhaven successful, there are other keys to their growth and success. One key has been their commitment to the community in Barrhaven, through sponsorships and involvement with various programs, to being an active member of the Barrhaven BIA. Another key to their success has come from the creative marketing strategies and campaigns that have driven the skyrocketing value of the company for the past decade. They were ahead of the curve with online ordering, and online ordering has outpaced dining-in by 300 per cent. Domino’s has been one of the early digital adopters in the industry. It has done a remarkable work on the tech front, by creating simpler and easier ways for customers to place orders on numerous platforms, ranging from inside vehicles to social media channels. Mobile is the focal point of customer communication, particularly when it comes the young demographics. And speaking of the millennials, emoji epitomises the rise of

simple and crisp communication trend that’s sweeping the digital landscape. Last year, Domino’s introduced the tweet ordering, letting young pizza lovers to place an order by simply texting or tweeting #easyorder or the same emoji to Domino. Even though the brand admits that it will not yet have a ‘defined role’ for Snapchat, Domino’s continue on its ex-

perimental phase on the channel to educate and build a healthy relationship with the millennials and GenZ. To place an order from Domino’s, you can call 613.843.7600.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY 2020 Ontario Little League Championship coming to Barrhaven The kids of Summer are headed to Barrhaven as East Nepean Little League has been chosen to host the Major Ontario Little League Championship in July 2020. Teams representing all eight Ontario Little League districts will travel to the Eagles Nest at Ken Ross Park in Barrhaven, home of the East Nepean Eagles, to compete for the opportunity to represent Ontario at the Canadian Little League Championship in Victoria, BC. East Nepean Little League President Bruce Campbell knows the significance of hosting this

sought after event. “The Major provincial tournament is special,” Campbell said. “It’s special for the athletes, their families and for the city of Ottawa. This tournament is the chance for 11 and 12-year-old players to get one step closer to living out the dream of representing Canada at the Little League World Series. Every at-bat, ground ball, pitch and fly ball are important steps towards winning. We are honoured to host the players who train for this and for their families who commit to supporting them along the way.”

Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder is excited for the opportunities hosting the event will bring to Barrhaven. “Barrhaven is excited indeed that East Nepean will host the 2020 Major Little League Ontario Championship,” Harder said. “Our community of over 90,000 residents and 500 businesses look forward to welcoming the players and their families. With new hotels under construction, three major recreation centres, close by Ottawa’s International Airport, with our very own VIA Rail station and on Hwy 416 there is nothing

we aren’t close to! Ottawa is a beautiful city and as we like to say it’s every Canadian’s second hometown. See you soon!” Winning this bid not only shines a spotlight on both

the community and organization but also reflects the passion and commitment of the volunteers, a hallmark of East Nepean Little League’s success throughout the last 63 years in Ottawa.

With just over a year until opening pitch, the hopeful players, families, coaches and community are already working towards making the tournament a home run for all.

edo japan continues from page 2 “Having been a part of the Edo Japan team for more than 10 years, this is a natural next step for me to introduce this restaurant to the Ottawa market and help build an enduring brand Canadawide,” says Cong Le, Franchisee, Edo Japan. “Edo Japan offers so

much to the community and I, along with my dedicated business partners, look forward to this exciting new venture.” Since Edo Japan’s inception in 1979, the quick-service restaurant has seen significant growth throughout Western Canada. From diverse

menu offerings and ontrend menu evolution, Edo Japan has become a staple in Canadian food service. Edo Japan’s Ottawa restaurant is situated in Barrhaven at Greenbank and Stranherd (3181 Greenbank Road). For more information please visit www.edojapan.com.

The IndependentSPORTS


draft continues from page 1 While the Devils were known as a defensive team for years, they have opened things up over the past few years by obtaining some high-end offensive talent and opening up their style of play. There will also be some familiar faces joining the Devils. Number one overall pick Jack Hughes played minor midget hockey in Toronto with Clarke

in 2016-17, and the Devils’ second round pick was Clarke’s Ottawa 67s teammate, defenceman Nikita Okhotyuk. “Taylor Hall is a great player to watch and they’ve got Nico Hischier, and I played with Jack in minor midget so I’m really happy he went first, so being able to see him at camp will be cool,” Clarke said.

Clarke said that he hopes he can rejoin Hughes on a line in the NHL someday. “Maybe we can rekindle the magic a little bit,” Clarke said, smiling and laughing. “We were hot together. It’s exciting to go to the same team as him and maybe down the road some time we’ll get to play together and get some of that magic back!”

Clarke was the first of several Ottawa area players selected in the NHL Draft. “Ottawa is one of the best hockey cities in the world for kids, and for my development, it was amazing,” Clarke said. With files from Russ Cohen of NHL Network Radio, a frequent contributor to the Barrhaven Independent.

From Yzerman to Noel, Barrhaven’s NHL draft picks through the years After Barrhaven’s Graeme Clarke was drafted by the New Jersey Devils last week in Vancouver, we decided to take a look at some other Barrhaven players who have been drafted by NHL teams. Please note that goalie Fred Brathwaite, who had a long career in the NHL, in Russia and in Germany, made the NHL as an undrafted rookie so he is not included below. Serron Noel (2018, Florida Panthers, Round 2, 34th overall) The son of former CFL running back Dean Noel, Serron left Barrhaven to play junior hockey for the Florida Panthers. As a 6’5”, 18-year-old winger, he had a career-high 34 goals and 47 assists for 81 points in 68 games with the Oshawa Generals. Zach Senyshyn (2015, Boston Bruins, Round 1, 15th overall) One of only two Barrhaven players to be selected in the first round of the NHL Draft, Senyshyn got his first taste of NHL hockey in 2018-19, plying two games and scoring his first NHL goal. The 6’1”, 192-pound defenseman spent most of last season with Providence (AHL) and had 14 goals and 10 assists for 24 points in 66 games. Nick Baptiste (2013, Buffalo Sabres, Round 3, 69th overall) The 23-year-old winger has seven goals in 47 games over parts of two seasons with the Buffalo Sabres. He was traded to Nashville before last season, and was assigned to Milwaukee (AHL). He was then dealt to Toronto and spent the rest of the season with the Marlies. Between the two teams, Baptiste had 14 goals and 15 assists for 29 points in 73 games. Mac Weegar (2013, Florida Panthers, Round 7, 206th overall) The 25-year-old defenceman played junior hockey for the Nepean Raiders and Halifax Mooseheads and was a late round pick of the Panthers. After playing for four minor league clubs, the 6’, 212-pound blueliner just completed his second full season in the NHL. He had four goals and 11 assists with 64 penalty minutes in 64 games last year. Julien Demers (2008, San Jose Sharks, Round 5, 146th overall) The 6’, 215-pound defenceman spent four years with the Ottawa 67s after starting his junior career with the Nepean Raiders. After finishing his

Painting/ All Home Renovations

last season with the 67s, Demers played one season with the UOttawa Gee Gees but never played professional hockey. Chris Corrozzi (2008, Atalnta Thrashers, Round 6, 154th overall) Local goalie Chris Corrozzi had a great OHL career with the St. Michael’s Majors and played in the minors for four years with the Gwinnett Gladiators (ECHL), Chicago Wolves (AHL), Colorado Eagles (ECHL), Ontario Reign (ECHL), St. John’s Ice Caps (AHL) and the Idaho Steeheads (ECHL). Corrozzi played for the University of New Brunswick in 2014-15 before heading to Europe the following year to play for Asiago of the Italian league. For the last two years he has been the starting goalie for the Guildford Flames of the English Elite Ice Hockey League. Tyler Moss (1993, Tampa Bay Lightning, Round 2, 29th overall) After playing junior hockey for the Kingston Frontenacs, Tyler Moss had a 17-year professional career. He played in 30 NHL games with the Flames, Hurricanes and Canucks, and he spent four years in Russia with Moscow Spartak and Khabarovsk Amur. Before heading to Russia, his minor league stops included the Atlanta Knights, Muskegon Fury, Grand Rapids Griffins, Adirondack Red Wings, St. John Flames, Orlando Solar Bears, Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins, Kansas City Blades, Cincinnati Cyclones, Lowell Lock Monsters, Manitoba Moose, Toronto Roadrunners and Edmonton Roadrunners. Moss left the KHL in 2010 to join the Hannover Scorpions of the German Elite League, and a year later he played his last season of pro hockey with the Nuermberg Ice Tigers, also in Germany. Steve Yzerman (1983, Detroit Red Wings, Round 1, 4th overall) Yzerman was the first player from Barrhaven drafted into the NHL, and he will always be the player that young prospects are compared to. He spent 22 seasons with the Red Wings and was a cornerstone of their Stanley Cup dynasty. In 1,514 games, he had 692 goals and 1,063 assists for 1,755 points. He also won the Lester B. Pearson Trophy, Conn Smythe Trophy, Frank J. Selke Trophy and Bill Masterton Trophy during his career. He was named captain of the Red wings at 21 and is the longest serving captain in North American sports history. He became the General Manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2010. IN April, he was named Executive Vice President and GM of the Detroit Red Wings.

What is the Best Hearing Device? If you have gone online or spoke to friends in the quest to find out which device is the best one, you were most likely confused by all the conflicting reports. This is normal because, truth is; there is no one device that will be perfect for everyone. Why? Well, because there is no one type of hearing loss profile, no one type of hearing need, no one type of person. Your “Best Device” is the one founded on a thorough assessment of your hearing capabilities and selected with all of your unique wants and needs in mind. The good news is that across the many Manufacturers, there are some great products to choose from. Some have a great wind manager for outdoor enthusiasts, others are geared to the musicians, others excel in connectivity, and so on and so forth. So, finding your “Best Device” is possible. The key is customization. You must consult a clinician that will research the entire market to find the solution that will most efficiently address your unique needs. Offering just that is Hearing Freedom, a lo-

cally owned, grown, and operated clinic. Their grass-roots approach is unfortunately rare in today’s market, where retail settings, larger clinics and Manufacturer owned chains have become increasingly present. The unique and refreshing approach that sets Hearing Freedom apart from other providers was established nearly 20 years ago by Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology. After interviewing for employment at many local clinics, she was disheartened to discover Manufacturer limitations and a focus on sales tactics and expected sales targets. “That is not proper hearing health care.” says McNamee, “To properly treat hearing loss and to maximize my patients’ quality of life, everything available in the market must be considered for each and every patient. Furthermore, I must do so with their particular needs and wants in mind, not my employer’s profit margins. Compromising on hearing healthcare is not an option for me. One-sizefits-all solutions just don’t cut it.” And so she decided to set up her own business, doing it her

way and putting patients first. At Hearing Freedom, there are no predetermined products or plans. Each and every patient’s intervention plan is as unique as they are. The experience begins with a thorough hearing evaluation which is followed by a detailed needs assessment. Throughout, the patient’s input is held paramount. “We devote all the time necessary to help our patients navigate this complex hearing healthcare terrain. We want to ensure our patients’ hearing needs are met.” explains McNamee, “We offer pre-purchase demos as well as a 90-day trial period on purchased hearing aids. These options give patients the confidence that they have chosen the right solution for them, their lifestyle and hearing needs.” With their focus on rehabilitation and continued support, a 5 year service plan is included with each purchase. This assures essential hearing check-ups and hearing aid care. In addition, there are no Hearing Instrument Practitioners or Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Freedom. Rather, patients are seen

by experienced, fully bilingual, Registered Audiologists. With Masters and Doctorate-level degrees, Audiologists are the most qualified in their field. They service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WCB, VAC, etc). “Not only is hearing complex, so are today’s hearing aid options,” McNamee explains. “Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.” At Hearing Freedom you can be certain that you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs. So, if you believe in your right to the best, fullest and most customized service available, make sure you book your appointment with Hearing Freedom. You will not regret your short drive to Manotick. Parking is free. Home visits optional. Wheelchair Friendly. For more information visit www.HearingFreedom.com
