Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford made his final rounds around Ottawa Saturday, starting the day off at Lisa MacLeod’s campaign office as a packed house of more than 300 supporters turned out for a community breakfast. While walking off his campaign bus to a song chanting “We the people,” Ford was greeted by his former leadership rivals Christine Elliott and Caroline Mulroney, who followed Ford around the capital, including stops in Barrhaven, Manotick and Nepean.

Inside the campaign office — formerly Jonny Canuck’s bar and grill, Ford shared his platform with supporters and said he will help put money back into their pockets. “We’re a team that is prepared to hit the ground running, and we will turn this province around on June 7,” Ford said to a cheering crowd. “My friends, I’ll tell you the PC plan, a plan that’s for the people, a plan to put money back into your pockets instead of the government’s pockets, a plan to reduce your hydro rates by 12 per cent, a plan to make sure that we put

money into your pocket when we reduce your taxes by 20 percent.” In the afternoon, Ford held a roundtable discussion with Mulroney and Elliott by his side — as well as a handful of the Progressive Conservative candidates from Eastern Ontario. He used the opportunity to bash the NDP government, and said Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath enforces candidates who are radical activists. “Even worse than the Liberals — 10 times worse — are the NDP,” Ford said. “There are candidates who accuse our heroes in the

military of being war criminals, and radical activists who have been arrested for sabotage.” Ford also took the opportunity to bash Joel Harden, the NDP Candidate for Ottawa Centre, who would like to see a 35 cent tax on every litre of gas. Ottawa Centre is the one riding in Ottawa that has a good chance of turning orange come June 7. Also among those at the round table discussion was Nepean Conservative Candidate Lisa MacLeod. When Ford was asked about gaining support in Ottawa, he gave the question to MacLeod to answer

— the only Conservative MPP in Ottawa. “It’s been lonely for the past 12 years,” MacLeod jokes. “As you can see around this table, we are going to send a number of Progressive Conservatives to Queens Park.” She named off candidates from a few ridings she feels will turn blue in this election, including Merrilee Fullerton in Kanata, Cameron Montgomery in Orleans, and Goldie Ghamari in Carleton — a riding MacLeod has represented for the last 12 years until it was split into two for this election. “I can tell you the people

in Carleton are looking forward to sending another Progressive Conservative to Queens Park to build on the work that I have done there in the past 12 years, and John Baird the 10 years previous to that,” MacLeod said. Ford’s last stop in Ottawa Saturday evening was a rally at the Centurion Conference and Event Centre where more than 500 people attended. When Ford was asked earlier on in the day about Premier Kathleen Wynne admitting she would not win the election, he just said the Progressive Conservatives are focused.

Cigarette to blame for $1.75 million fire that displaces more than 40 “Improper disposal of smoking material” was to blame for the fire on Chapman Mills Drive that displaced more than 40 people from their homes last Wednesday. A total of 16 homes in the 600-block of Chapman Mills Drive west of Beatrice Avenue suffered a total of about $1.75 million in damages in the threealarm blaze. Eight of the 16 units had extensive damages. More than a dozen emergency vehicles were on scene, as were volunteers from the Red Cross and Salvation Army. The fire broke out just before 8:30 a.m. and emergency workers responded to a pair of 9-1-1 calls. Ottawa Fire investigators determined that the blaze originated at the rear of the building, near the lower balcony. They said the cause of the fire was accidental, and that the careless disposal of a cigarette butt or a similar item was the cause of the fire. Some of the residents knocked on doors to ensure that all of their neighbours got out of the build-

ing safely. One of the displaced residents was Suhail Bahtti, who was asleep when the fire broke out and woke up to smoke and flames in his condo. “I had to crawl out and I’m on the upper unit, so that makes it even more scary,” he told CTV at the scene of the fire. “It’s always been a nightmare for me, and to have your house on fire, especially when you are in bed, that’s pretty much what happened.” Danielle Cardinal of the Ottawa Fire Department told the Independent on scene that firefighters received a lot of support from other departments. She mentioned that Ottawa Police were quick to close Chapman Mills Drive, and that the paramedics were able to treat one minor injury to a resident. They would later treat a minor injury to a firefighter. She added that keeping the blaze from spreading was one of the biggest challenges they faced. “When we are talking about 16 units and a rapid fire spread, we escalate our

While Cardinal was talking to the Independent she was thrilled to learn that a missing cat, who had been hiding under a couch, was located, brought out safely, and reunited with his owner. “We were looking for that particular little fellow and we’re glad he is okay,” she said. Firefighters engaged in a rapid exterior attack and other crews searched the units and assisted residents with evacuation. The balcony structures behind the building were severely damaged by fire and most collapsed at 8:40 a.m. Fire operations continued from the exterior of the building and other crews worked inside addressing the presence of fire inside the attic. The firefighters worked diligently to keep adjacent units unaffected by fire. Crews limited fire spread The amount of fire and heat in the attic and roof area of the 3.5 storey building made things difficult for local firefighters.

BIA to help Barrhaven Independent celebrate 1000th issue at business breakfast The Barrhaven Independent will be publishing its 1000th issue next month, and the Barrhaven BIA and the local business community will help the local newspaper celebrate the milestone. Barrhaven Independent editor and publisher Jeff Morris will be the speaker at the BIA’s Breakfast for Business networking event at Cedar Hill Golf Club

Wed., June 13 from 7-9 a.m. “We exist because of the business community in Barrhaven, as 100 per cent of our revenue comes from advertising,” said Morris. “We are really thankful that the BIA has invited us to share our story of how we and the Barrhaven business community have supported each other and worked hand

in hand over the past 28 years.” The Morris family founded the Independent in 1990 as part of their community newspaper business. The Independent spawned from the nearby Manotick Messenger, and the two sister publications operate out of the same office. Jeff Morris, an original staff member, moved to the United States to work

as a marketing executive in the professional sports merchandise and collectibles industry. While in the US, he was a also an NHL columnist for ESPN.com. “I left Barrhaven when it was a little bedroom community and returned 14 years later to what had become its own city,” Morris said. “I remember flying into Ottawa from Seattle and

looking out the window and being surprised when I realized that the sprawling suburb I was looking at was Barrhaven.” Since Morris returned in 2005, the Independent and Messenger have combined to win more than 50 national and provincial community newspaper awards. Morris has been named Ontario’s top humour

columnist twice and top columnist once for his From the Other Side Column. Last month, he won the Stephen Shaw Award as the province’s 2017 Reporter of the Year. He also won the award in 2009. Tickets for the breakfast are $20 each and can be obtained from the link on the Barrhaven BIA website at www.barrhavenbia.ca.

No text is worth the life of you or others while you are driving From Barrhaven Community Police No text is worth your life or that of others. The Leave the Phone Alone (LTPA) distracted driving education kits are available to schools in the city of Ottawa. Some alarming facts about texting and driving: - Between 2009 and 2013, there were over 6300 injuries and 18

fatalities in Ottawa in which distracted driving was a contributing factor. - In comparison to an attentive driver, a texting driver is 23 times more likely to be involved in a collision. For drivers talking on cell phones, the risk is four times greater. - It takes an attentive driver 1.5 seconds to react to a situation on the roadway. When drivers

are distracted, reaction time is doubled. - Multitasking is a myth! According to the Traffic Injury Research Foundation, texting, driving and talking are all thinking tasks. Our brains switch between tasks, so no one is able to do two thinking tasks at the same time, regardless of driving experience. - The age group most at risk is drivers be-

tween 16 and 29. The Ontario Provincial Police estimates that by 2016, injuries and fatalities caused by distracted driving in our Province will surpass those caused by impaired driving. - In the 2013 Ontario Student Drug and Health Survey, 43% of drivers in grade 12 admit to texting behind the wheel, 37% of teens report being a passen-

Growing group of Barrhaven kids spreading kindness in the community By Charlie Senack When Amy Wellings moved to Barrhaven last summer with her sixyear-old daughter Audrey, she knew she wanted to do something to give back to the community, and teach children about kindness. She put a post on a Barrhaven mom’s Facebook group asking other parents if they would be interested, and the response was positive. In January 2018 she started a group called Barrhaven Kids Spreading Kindness, and by March she had more than 300 members. “I think that kindness is very important for kids and with my daughter for the past couple of years, we have done acts of kindness over the Christmas season,” said Wellings. “I really wanted to make it a year round activity for her, and have her grow up knowing kindness has power and love and compassion are stronger than hate.” Since the group started, they have done a number of acts of kindness including giving donations to the Rideau Valley Wildlife sanctuary, visiting local fire stations, and doing arts and crafts with seniors at a local re-

tirement home. “We got to go to the seniors home and we just stayed with the seniors for a couple of hours,” said eight-year-old Samantha. “They were all happy. We painted (Easter) eggs for them, we baked treats for them, and we did activities with them.” All activities in the group are currently being funded by the parents and online donations, yet the group is hoping to hold more events to bring in money for local charities and organizations. On Saturday June 2, the kids held a lemonade stand outside of the Kiddie Kobbler at MarketPlace in Barrhaven, which brought in nearly $1,500 for the Ottawa Cancer Foundation. It was a part of the lemonade stand ammonium movement that was going on around the city over the weekend. Wellings has hopes to expand the group out of Barrhaven, and said she has already seen interest from places such as Orillia and Burlington. Eleven-year-old Ella said she is glad to be a part of an organization that is giving back to the community, and was glad

to be a part of the lemonade stand to raise money for cancer research — a cause that is close to her heart. “People do have good hearts, and people want to spread love and help people,” she said. “(People) should start doing things like this and donating, and just making different charities for anyone who is less fortunate.” The group plans to hold a dance-a-thon for the Barrhaven Food Cup-

board in the summer, and is in the works of creating a pyjama party in support

of pyjama patrol. Anyone who is interested in finding out more about the

group can contact Amy at barrhavenkindness@ gmail.com.

A no-Wynne situation You may have seen the big Doug Ford bus rolling through town Saturday. And if you think the Progressive Conservative candidate got big cheers when he stepped off the bus, you can only imagine what was going on inside the bus and behind closed doors. Ford spent a chunk of the day meeting supporters with Nepean’s Lisa MacLeod, Carleton’s Goldie Ghamari and Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands incumbent Steve Clark. The trio of local candidates covers the 416 from the Queensway to the 401, and they may become the trifecta of the party’s strongest MPPs. But the most unusual thing in an unusual and ugly campaign happened while Ford was meeting with Eastern Ontario Tories in Barrhaven Saturday. Kathleen Wynne, the Liberal leader whose approval rating has been falling like poorly installed window blinds in the earthquake of 2010, stunned the province when she called a press conference and conceded defeat. The scandals, financial disaster and bad decisions had finally forced Wynne to take a knee in the election end zone. The move stunned everyone, even the Tories who emerged from their meeting to find their supporters acting like they had been set free from Voldemort’s reign in the first and last Harry Potter books. So why did she pack it in, and why just days before an election? Wynne dropped the bombshell – one of the biggest in Ontario political history – admitting that she would no longer be premier after the June 7 election. Many of us thought that would be the case four years ago, but she somehow managed to win a majority government as PC Leader Tim Hudak did not win the confidence of Ontario voters. Wynne urged Ontario voters to vote Liberal so that either the PC or NDP parties would not be able to form a majority. They have even been running a television campaign during election week asking voters to vote Liberal to prevent a majority government. “Don’t give them a blank cheque,” the ad says. That’s the Ontario Liberal Party asking that. How is that for hypocrisy? But is the move really about preventing a majority government? The Ontario Liberals have been far too self-serving over the years to take the high road they claim to be on. The real reason is that they are desperate to retain official status as a party. The Liberals must win at least eight seats to retain that status. Heading into the election, it was a real possibility that they would not. Locally, the big question will be with MacLeod and Clark. They have been outstanding voices for the opposition since being at Queen’s Park. Maybe now we will get to see what they can do when they are in the caucus of the ruling party. BARRHAVEN

Messi and Neymar cause sleepless nights in Bangladesh The flags are starting to come out. Every four years, Canadians who are not Indigenous use the FIFA World Cup as an excuse to connect with their roots. The GermanCanadians will be flying their flags and hosting parties that will bring a piece of Bavaria to us. The growing number of Iranian-Canadians will be dancing and celebrating when their team takes the pitch. Canadians originally from Egypt will be doing the same. The Danish Canadians will be cheering on their homeland, as will Canadians of Polish descent. And with Iceland’s surprising rise to soccer prowess, how many people will be tracing their family roots or ordering DNA testing to see if they have at least a small percentage of Iceland running through their veins. Unfortunately, the Italians did not get a ticket to this dance. Neither did the Irish or the Scottish or the Dutch. Ironically, there are no Canadians that have hung on to their homeland roots and shown such loyalty to their motherlands than the Canadians cheering for those clubs. And I still remember a couple of decades ago when the Irish beat the Italians and how the aftermath of that spilled For everyone else, not hanging on to their homeland roots, we will see Brazilian and Argentinian flags and jerseys as they cheer on Lionel Messi of Argentina and Neymar of Brazil. In fact, we are already seeing the excitement around these two superstars, easily the most popular athletes in the world right now. But nowhere does this global excitement for the World Cup have more of an impact than in Bangladesh. I don’t really know anything about Bangladesh. I do know that it is a country in South Asia tucked between Indian and Myanmar. With 160 million people, it is the eighth most populated country in the world. They aren’t dominant in the sports world – cricket is their number one sport ahead of soccer, and they have had great success in chess. But as popular as soccer is and as many people as the country has, Bangladesh is ranked 197th out of 202 countries with national men’s soccer teams. But the world’s hysteria for the World Cup will change the lives for many Bengalis. If you are wondering why, think back to the flags. Many of the flags we see hanging in front of homes and businesses and stuck in car windows were made in Bangladesh. In the capital city of Dhaka, the workshop district of Merajnagar has become the vortex of international flags. The district is filled with small, hot sweatshops with workers working ridiculously long and hard hours. Their wages for a month are about the equivalent of one shift at McDonald’s in Canada. Right now, weeks before the World Cup gets underway, the demand for flags and pennants has the

Merajnagar District working on all cylinders. Argentina and Brazil account for most of the flags and pennants, and they are the two most popular teams in Bangladesh. Last month, a video of fans carrying a 200-metre Argentinian flag in Bangladesh went viral. Yes, a flag that was 200 metres long. Selim Howlader, 33, owns one of the many FROM THE factories in the district that employs a combined four million garment and textile workers in 4,500 factories. His company will sell several by Jeff Morris hundred thousand flags by the time the tournament is over. In 2014, he sold 80,000 flags before and during the World Cup. Right now, he is selling about 2,500 big flags and about 10,000 pennants per day. Not surprisingly, the popularity of Messi and Neymar is driving record sales for Howlader. “Argentina and Brazil are the two most popular teams in Bangladesh,” he said in an interview with phys.org. “I have even got orders to make 50-foot long Argentine flags. These two teams have the most supporters in our country. Germany, Spain and Portugal are the other popular teams.” In the same article, textile printer Kamal Hossain, 40, who owns one of the small seatshops in Dhaka, said he and his staff have been working around the clock. “For the last two months I have been working non-stop,” said Hossain. “There are days when I do not even get two hours of sleep.” Hossain has been spending every waking hour at his screen printing machine. Homes y have been converted into makeshift printing and sewing plants to meet the demand. “Every day we’re printing and making thousands of flags. Today we’ve already printed 11,000 Argentina pennants,” said Hossain in his interview with phys.org. Perhaps the story of Bangladesh’s flag windfall is the most enlightening story to come out of the World Cup in Russia thus far. The country is always under scrutiny by human rights groups for poor working conditions, dangerous conditions, and extremely low wages. Nargis Akhter, 28, and her husband Mohammad Iqbal, work in Howlader’s factory. On an average day, they make 3,000 taka, which is about $50 Canadian. The average factory in Bangladesh pays about $100 Canadian for an entire moth of work. “I wish the craze for flags would go on for many more months,” said a smiling Akhter. So when the middle of June comes and all of a sudden, soccer seems to be on all TVs at all times, watch for people cheering and waving their flags. The world will be celebrating. In Bangladesh, every flag is making the living conditions just a tiny bit better.

The Independent#MYBARRHAVEN Fresh ingredients and quality give Burgers and Shakes good food, not fast food Ali Tohme says it is hard to believe that Burgers and Shakes is celebrating its third anniversary in Barrhaven. “The time has flown by,” he said. “It’s been a blur.” But it has been a very good blur. For Tohme, his family, and his business partner, Katryna Chaykowski, the formula for their success is not complicated. Fresh ingredients, great food, a great location, and top notch customer service have all played a part in making Burgers and Shakes a local business success story in what has been a tough environment for many. “The quality of the food is what has been bringing people back,” Tohme said. “Everything is fresh, and we use all natural ingredients. We ground the beef ourselves for the burgers. We use ice cream from Tracey’s Dairy (formerly Breyer’s) for our shakes. We are like a 1950s-styyle burger and shake place, where the focus is on quality.” That focus has made Burgers and Shakes good food as opposed to fast food. While the Barrhaven location has been open for three years, Burgers and Shakes has more than three decades behind its success. They have been open in Manotick since the 1980s. They were familiar to many families in Barrhaven long before they opened at Strandherd and Kennevale, as their Manotick location is across the road from the Ottawa South United soccer facility. “When my father (Albert Tohme) bought the business in Manotick, he wanted to create a burger that tasted like something you would have at a backyard bar-

becue,” Tohme said. “They were located in the back of Drummond’s Gas Station, and the business had been called Burgers, Shakes and Fries. Even though fries are still a big part of the business, he simplified it to Burgers and Shakes.” Albert Tohme bought the business in 1986 from a friend, who wanted to move to Florida and retire. The business thrived as a destination and eventually outgrew its location. They moved two kilometres east to the corner of Mitch Owens Road and Limebank Road, where they have been since 2001. Located across from the OSU George Nelms Soccer Park and St. Mark High School, Burgers and Shakes in Manotick also has a golf driving range and a mini-putt on site. The customers come back for the quality of the food, and the critics like what they have tried. Burgers and Shakes has won the Top Choice Awards Top Burger Place in Ottawa, and they have won the Top Choice Award for Best Burgers in Ottawa six of the last eight years. “A lot of Barrhaven families go to the soccer park in Manotick and then come over for burgers and shakes after they are done,” Tohme said. “They know us, and when we opened in Barrhaven, we already had a strong customer base.” The Barrhaven location is located at Strandherd and Kennevale, just south of the 416 interchange at Fallowfield Road. “It’s a perfect location for us,” said Tohme. “We had been looking at expanding and opening a second store for about 10 years, and have been seriously planning it for

about five years. When this location became available, we jumped on it. There is a lot of growth planned for here, especially with the car dealerships and Costco now open, the business park, and thousands of homes planned for the area.” Tohme started working for his parents in Manotick as an adolescent and, like many in family business, and learned the business from the bottom up. “I started by peeling and cutting potatoes,” he said. “They gave me two dollars a day. But it was always a nice, crispy brand new two dollar bill. It was exciting to get that.” While the burgers are award winners, many customers think the

shakes are even better. “They use the best ice cream on the planet,” said one customer, who wanted to chime in when he heard Tohme talking about the shakes. “I come all the way from Pakenham just for the shakes. Now that they have a Barrhaven location right off Highway 416, it makes it easier for me to come.” The shakes, like the burgers, are made the authentic and old fashioned way. While most fast food places have mixtures they put into machines, Burgers and Shakes uses milk and ice cream and a wide range of flavours to make the most authentic shakes found in Eastern Ontario. “We have 36 flavours of shakes, and we are al-

ways featuring flavours of the month,” Tohme said. The menu is simple, but it does go beyond fresh burgers, fresh but fries and homemade shakes. They also have shawarma, and other items like onion rings, deep fried zucchini and deep fried pickles. “A lot of people don’t realize it, but our number two item behind burgers has always been shawarma,” he said, adding the hummus and garlic sauce is made from scratch using his mother’s recipe. “When we opened in Barrhaven, I thought about getting a spit for the shawarma, but my father advised me against it. Instead, we cook our meat on the barbecue on skewers.

Our customers love it.” Tohme worked in the family business and eventually worked at TD Canada trust in Barrhaven. He saved money for several years, went back to school, and began planning for the opening of the family’s second Burgers and Shakes location. “We put our hearts and our souls into this place,” he said. “Our family does, and our employees do, too. We are all like a big family here. Some of the employees were even customers as kids, coming to eat with their families. “When a business has been in the family for so long, it becomes a part of you. This is more than a burger place to us. It’s my father’s legacy.”

Happy FatHer’s Day Make his first Father’s Day special

Dads are often the first heros in their young children’s lives. Dads chase away ghosts in the closet, let their daughters dance on their toes and teach their sons how to win the heart of their first crush. The first Father’s Day a new dad spends with his growing family can be quite memorable, as celebrating one’s fatherhood for the first time is a unique and special time. Spouses and other family members can go the extra mile to make this year that much more special for first-time fathers. · Let Dad sleep in. Chances are Dad is enamored with his little bundle of joy, but it’s well-known that being a new father often means sacrificing sleep time especially for the first several months to a year of that child’s life. Enlist the help of a family member who can be on baby watch while Dad gets to sleep in

on the weekend of his big day. With some extra sleep, Dad can enjoy Father’s Day that much more. · Create a first-year memory book. Take the time to put together a scrapbook of the photos and moments baby and Dad have gotten to spend together. So much focus is often placed on a new baby and his or her mother that Dad may be left playing second fiddle. Make it clear that fathers are key to their children’s development and happiness, too. · Make a baby keepsake. Use washable ink so that baby can sign a Father’s Day card with a hand or footprint. The tradition can be repeated year after year until the child is old enough to write. · Go overboard on gifts. The idea isn’t to buy Dad’s love, but Dad’s first Father’s Day is a truly unique time. On behalf of his firstborn, purchase a few different

gifts - those items that he has been interested in buying but has resisted in favor of saving money for new onesies and burp cloths. Or invest in one

special event gift, such as tickets to a game to see his favorite team or a concert to catch a favorite band. · Boost his ego. Get

matching T-shirts for baby and Dad with cute memes and sayings, such as “Couch Potato” and “Tater Tot.” Father’s Day comes once

a year. However, a father’s very first Father’s Day occurs just once. Use the opportunity to pamper Dad so he can savor this truly special experience.

holding that precious piece of paper.Each year at this time we await the smiling photos of the mortarboard wearing graduates; from the Tiny Tots program to the University Graduate, each one an eager learner awaiting to begin the next step on their life discovery journey. Oh, how many things to be learned, how many adventures lay ahead. The roots of education go back to the very beginnings of history. Our highly complex and expensive educational system has been built up over a long period of time and owes much to the past. Education came with a “price” over the years, with all the

young people who had dreams but never had the opportunity to learn more, when their lives were snuffed out by wars. In the free society in which we live, every citizen has the opportunity to develop his or her abilities to the limit of their capacity. If we are to compete successfully in the world, governments cannot afford to neglect any of the divisions of our educational system – primary, secondary, college and university. Convocations and commencements are in the purest sense markers of beginnings. They give voice to our life’s work and sound the starting of all that can be.. I would like to dedicate this “This Week This Month” story to all the graduates and anyone who is embarking a new stage of their life and wonders about the mountains that lie ahead – all the best wishes!

Local athletes to compete at OFSAA provincial high school track championships Several athletes representing four Barrhaven high schools have qualified to compete at this weekend’s OFSAA Ontario provincial high school track championships. To qualify for the provincials, athletes had to finish in the top four in their event at last weekend’s East Regionals in Kingston. For St. Mother Teresa, Dasia McDonald finished fourth in the midget girls 100 metres and second in the long jump to qualify in two events. She is also part of the school’s senior girls 4x100 metre relay team with Jada Burke, Jeanelly Balthazar and Jermaila Bruce that qualified for the provincials with a third place showing. Bruce will also be competing in the senior girls 100 metres after placing second with a time of 12.06 seconds, while Burke placed fourth in the senior girls

400 metres with a time of 59.58 seconds. Junior girls discus thrower Hailey Gibbons also qualified by placing third with a throw of 28.22 metres. Longfields Davidson Heights will be sending five athletes to OFSAA. Caitlin McCann was second in the midget girls 1500 metres, while Melanie Drost was second in the junior girls discus and second in the junior girls javelin. Joshua Foster won the junior boys triple jump with an effort of 13.65 metres, while Jackson Roy was fourth in the junior boys 800m and Ben Adams was fourth in the junior boys long jump. From John McCrae, Melany Kayembe qualified for OFSAA by placing third in the junior girls long jump, while springer Benley Bernard was fourth in the midget boys 200m. Mattson Strickler of St. Joseph was third in the midget girls 400 metres.

The Longfields-Davidson Heights girls 4x400 relay team advanced to last weekend’s East Regional Meet in Kingston. Team members were Kory McCulloch, Veronica Rozon, Akina Juneau-Katsaya and Kiara Gibson.

St. Mother Teresa knocks off South Carleton for first lacrosse title since 2010 The monkey is off the back of the St. Mother Teresa Titans lacrosse team. After falling behind 2-0 to South Carleton, the Titans scored six unanswered goals to defeat the Storm 6-2 in the NCSSAA championship lacrosse game played at Millennium Field in Cumberland. Both teams have moved on to the OFSSA provincial high school lacrosse championships, played at Twin Elm Rugby Park this week. “In seven of the last eight years, it’s been us against South Carleton,” said Titans coach Thomas Richard. “This is the first time since 2010 that we have been able to beat them.” Richard saw early on this year that both teams were headed for another showdown in the finals. Both teams went through the regular season undefeated. “They’ve had our number,” added Richard. “They are a well-coached team and they are very consistent. We knew that if we kept doing what we have been doing, things would eventually go our way.” Richard praised the

play of goalie Owen Steele, who will be playing lacrosse at Trent University next year. He also praised the play of attacker Riley Henry, who scored four goals in the final. At OFSAA, Richard said he hopes for a good showing. “There will be some

Toronto teams and some private school teams that are very strong,” he said. “We hope to be competitive and have a strong showing.” Members of the St. Mother Teresa Titans lacrosse team celebrate their NCSSAA city high school lacrosse championship victory over South Carleton last week.

Summer Camps

Summer camp options abound Summer camp is a beloved tradition in many families. Many parents of young children fondly recall spending their summers at summer camp, where they made lifelong friends and learned the finer points of roasting marshmallows and competing in threelegged sack races. Parents looking for the right summer camp for their kids will soon discover there are various types of summer camps, each offering youngsters something different. The following are some of the summer camp options parents can expect to encounter as they search for the right campe for their kids. Day camp Day camps are not overnight camps, which means kids will return home each night rather than sleep over at camp.

Day camps typically offer many of the activities people have come to associate with camps, including crafts, sports and even day-trips to experience local culture or attractions. Many day camps are co-ed, and counselors typically live within the community. Faith-based camp Faith-based camps offer many of the same activities as more traditional summer camps, but do so while simultaneously offering campers the opportunity to celebrate and further explore their religious beliefs. Some faithbased camps may focus heavily on religion, incorporating faith into daily camp activities, while others may be more subtle with regard to integrating religious beliefs and lessons into camp activities.

Sports camps Some summer camps focus on a particular sport, catering to young athletes who want to further develop their athletic talents. Sports camps may or may not feature guest lectures and lessons from notable local athletes and coaches, with some even providing instruction from current and/or former professional athletes. Some sports camps are overnight, while others are day camps. Family camps Family camps are opportunities for the whole family to enjoy the summer camp experience. Family camps typically tailor their activities around tasks families can complete together, with counselors providing assistance when it’s needed. Family camps may be faith-based or secular, and families

typically stay overnight, sleeping in facilities on the campsite or in lodging away from home. Special needs camps Parents of children with special needs can still send their kids to summer camp, as there are many

camps that cater to such youngsters. Special needs camps may cater to campers who are blind, deaf, learning disabled, or mentally or physically disabled. Staff at special needs camps typically undergoes

extensive training, which helps to calm some of the fears parents may have about leaving their special needs children at camp. Facilities at special needs camps are often built to accommodate the specific needs of campers.

Vision and input needed as Barrhaven’s ‘next steps’ planned Half way through the year, that is what someone said to me this morning…can you believe it? I had a great meeting last week with some community leaders talking about Barrhaven’s next steps. If you are interested in participating let me know. Andrea Steenbakkers, Executive Director of Barrhaven’s BIA and Alison Stirling, my planning assistant, are going to work together to host a charrette mid-June to establish next steps. We have some very important opportunities coming to Barrhaven and I need your help, vision and input. I am very proud to say that Hope Blooms, which was a huge fundraiser for the QCH and supported by the Ambassadors Raising Hope Councillors (west and south end councillors) raised $520k for the renovation and rehabilitation of the Mental Health Unit at our Queensway Carleton Hospital.

Intersections are chosen for red light cameras based on collision patterns. The cameras improve intersection safety by decreasing the running of red lights. Running a red light is considered an aggressive driving behaviour that contributes to collisions that may result in serious injuries or fatalities. The City’s interactive traffic map lists all intersections equipped with red light cameras. All intersections with red light cameras are equipped with signs to increase drivers’ awareness of

their installation. The red light camera takes two photographs: one when a vehicle is about to enter an intersection where the light is red, and one showing the vehicle in the intersection. Both photos only captures a vehicle’s rear license plates - not its driver or occupants. The City consulted the Province’s Information and Privacy Commissioner to ensure the cameras do not violate driver or occupant privacy. The fine for running a red light is $260 plus a $5 service fee and $60 victim surcharge.

DINING OUT

g n i 9 tips for a better dining experience r u t a e F Most people enjoy dining out for various reasons, including the opportunity to try new flavors, interact socially and avoid cooking and cleaning up at home. Canadians are dining out more often. A Dalhousie University survey found that nearly 42 percent of Canadians either buy ready-to-eat meals or dine at a restaurant once or twice a week, while another 3 percent admitted to doing so on a daily basis. Dining out puts customers in direct contact with the people who make restaurants run like clockwork - most notably, food servers. While big tips are a great way for diners to express their gratitude to their servers, there are other ways to show thanks. 1. Make a reservation and arrive on time. When a reservation has been made, make sure all members of the dining party arrive on time. A punctual arrival helps the restaurant run more smoothly,

especially if it is a large party. If you will be running late, call the restaurant and notify them. 2. Let needs be known early on. If you’re rushing to make it to a movie, let the server know that time is of the essence so service can be expedited. If you prefer to lounge, ask to be seated in an outof-the way spot. 3. Only signal the server when you’re ready to order. Do not call the server over if you need to continue perusing the menu. 4. Be courteous to the server and fellow customers. It is important for all customers to wait their turn and avoid interrupting waiters when they are taking other customers’ orders. In addition, allow servers to mention the specials before ordering. 5. Alert staff to food allergies when ordering so that the kitchen can be notified that a special order will be coming in. This enables everyone to be

prepared and reduces the risk of someone getting sick. 6. If something is not right with the meal, mention it early so it can be remedied. Do not eat an entire meal before filing a complaint with the server. 7. Recognize that servers have nothing to do with the wait time for a table. Do not take your frustration out on the server if it takes awhile before you’re seated. 8. Clean up after yourself and children. If your party makes a big mess or a child gets sick or spills something, make an effort to clean up the table. 9. Consider the bigger picture when deciding what to leave as a tip. Servers have no control over the quality of the food, wait times or even the atmosphere. Take up issues with the management and make sure the tip reflects the job done by the server.
