Commuters sound off over poor service provided by OC Transpo ‘Fake riders’ who get on 95 downtown and hop off after a couple of stops make it impossible for commuters to get home in decent time
The villagers may not have shown up with their Tiki torches lit, but the OC Transpo riders certainly did. Councillors Jan Harder, Michael Qaqish and Scott Moffatt hosted a forum for OC Transpo riders at Pierre Savard Secondary School last Tuesday night. More than 100 people representing the wards of all
three hosting councillors showed up to vent their frustrations. Miguel Tremblay, Senior Development Planner at FoTenn Consultants, and Chris Gordon, a transportation engineer with Parsons, co-hosted the meeting. They expressed to the crowd that they wanted to gather information on the problems that riders were
experiencing so that they could be presented to OC Transpo officials. “When you think about it, a commuter getting the bus in Barrhaven could drive to work in Kingston in the same amount of time as it takes them to get to downtown Ottawa using OC Transpo,” said Councillor Jan Harder, who said her office has been in-
undated with complaints about public transit services. Harder did not want OC Transpo representatives at the meeting, fearing the fireworks would be counterproductive. The problem extends beyond Barrhaven. Moffatt, whose ward has grown north into the southern part of Half Moon Bay and Stonebridge, says that
commuters in his ward use Barrhaven’s park and rides as a transit hub as well. “There are a lot of people from North Gower who take the 95,” Moffatt said. “In fact, a lot of rural residents in North Gower, Kars and Manotick do. People drive to Barrhaven to the park and ride and then ride the bus downtown.
People wish there were better transit options for residents of rural Ottawa, but they know there aren’t and they just accept it.” Moffatt added that the rural residents pay far less for transit services on their tax bills. Getting in and out of Barrhaven is as much of a problem for them as it is for Barrhaven residents.

As Light Rail Transit is slated to start running in a few months, some of the trains that will be running have a Barrhaven connection. The names of the 40 trains that will be running on the Confederation and Trillium Lines were announced during a ceremony at Ben Franklin Place on Feb, 24. More than 1,400
school children up to the age of 16 submitted names for the trains and 40 were selected— six for the Trillium Line and 34 for the Confederation Line. Hannah, a student at Farley Mowat Public School in Barrhaven, was among those who had the opportunity to choose a name for one if the trains on the Confederation Line. She decided to name the train after her
Keeping you connected with everything and everyone, your ability to hear is priceless. Unfortunately, one in ten of us suffer from hearing loss. If ignored, even the slightest hearing loss has significant consequences. You become disconnected from your world as loved ones become mumblers and asking to repeat becomes a nuisance. Your safety and independence is compromised. You risk misdiagnoses, diminishing cognitive abilities and depression. Indeed, untreated or improperly treated hearing loss has a pronounced negative impact on your quality of life. Although the negative impact of untreated hearing loss is universal, the details of your hearing ability and hearing needs are unique to you. Consequently, overcoming even the slightest hearing loss is best achieved if the solution selected is just as distinctive as you are. To achieve this, all products available need to be considered and discussed. Fortunately, at Hearing Freedom your freedom of choice is held paramount. Locally owned, grown and operated, Hearing Freedom adopts a unique and refreshing approach to patient care which drastically differs with that of retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. In 2001, as a newly graduated Audiologist, Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology, had many interviews for

positions at local dispensaries. At each establishment she was disappointed to find the same thing; the interviews had nothing to do with her knowledge and skills, they instead focused on the number of hearing aid units she was expected to sell and the company’s affiliation to a given Manufacturer. “That was not my idea of proper hearing health care,” says McNamee. “I wanted to focus on my patients’ needs, not sales. I wanted to be able to consider everything available, not just the product lines providing the employer the biggest profit margins. I wanted to be driven by satisfied customers and by their improved quality of life.” And so she decided to set up her own business, doing it her way and putting patients first, offering true Hearing Freedom. Now, nearly 15 years later, she continues to help patients stay young, active and socially connected. Hearing Freedom offers a rarely found grass-roots program of care. Unlike larger companies and chains, there is no predetermined product or plan. Each and every patient’s intervention plan is as unique as they are. The experience begins with a thorough assessment which is followed by a detailed needs assessment and continued follow-up. Throughout, the patient’s opinions and concerns are held paramount. “We don’t give up until our patients’ hearing

This extensive trial gives patients the confidence that they have chosen the right solution for them, their lifestyle and hearing needs.” Furthermore, there are no Hearing Instrument Practitioners or Hearing Instrument Specialists on staff. Patients are rather seen by the owner, a bilingual Audiologist who holds a Doctoral degree in Audiology. She is qualified to service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WCB, VAC, etc). “Hearing is complex and so are today’s hearing aids,” McNamee explains. “Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.” At Hearing Freedom you will never worry whether or not you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs.

PAH sufferer chooses to focus on living instead of dwelling on dying By Jeff Morris Every day, Susan Bailey wakes up knowing that she will be looking down the barrel of a gun. But every day, she wakes up feeling the same way. “I’m grateful every morning,” Bailey said. “I’m still here.” Bailey suffers from Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). It is a terminal lung condition that gets progressively worse. She retired from her job as a teacher at Cedarview Middle School in 2006, and is one of about 5,000 Canadians diagnosed with the condition. Because it is difficult to diagnose, there may be as many as 10,000 Canadians suffering from PAH. “Twenty years ago, this would have been a death sentence,” Bailey said. “But there is a great support team in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario.” PAH is caused by arteries of the lungs being closed off or damaged, impeding blood flow and causing high blood pressure in the lungs. There is no known cure for the condition. Advancements have been made in controlling PAH this decade, but although Health Canada recognizes the treatments, they are not yet publicly funded. Bailey said although there have been improvements in the treatments, the drugs
still cost up to $120,000 per year. There are several kinds of PAH. Bailey has Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. She said that part of the problem for diagnosing PAH is that the symptoms are shared with other diseases. She also said that most doctors have never seen it because of its rarity. She went through a bad fall, a blown out knee, and finally the inability to walk from her car into a movie theatre before her ailment was diagnosed. After two or three years, it was Dr. Suzanne Rutherford in Kemptville who figured out what was wrong with Bailey. “It took two or three years to diagnose,” she said. “My heart was double its normal size. My energy level was nil, there was a great deal of sweating, and I wasn’t sleeping well. My body was being deprived of oxygen.” While the news of PAH was not good, Bailey was relieved that a diagnosis had finally been made. “I finally had a name for it,” she said. “I realized I wasn’t crazy. There actually was something seriously wrong with me. Emotionally, I didn’t go into a valley. I just thought, ‘I’ve got this. I will do what I have to do.’ It’s how I deal with it.” The valley, as she calls it, is something Bailey is focused on avoiding. She relies on a strong network
of support from her husband, family, friends, and her church. Her outlook has become an inspiration for other patients of PAH, as well as those around her. “Some patients of PAH go into the valley,” Bailey said. “Facing death is not easy, but really, we are all dying, just at different rates, and we are all going to die. I just take it one day at a time and focus on living, not dwelling on dying.” In an effort to say thank you, give back to the community and to assist other PAH patients, Bailey is helping to organize the Unmasking PH Masquerade Ball. The event will be held May 5, which is World Pulmonary Hypertension Day. There are similar events going on in Vancouver and Calgary on the same day. “I thought a masquerade ball would be good because it is an invisible disease,” Bailey said. The event takes place

The IndependentNEWS Elliott says PC Party gaining momentum during visit to Barrhaven By Jeff Morris
Christine Elliott told local Progressive Conservatives that the party is ready to take on the Wynne Liberals in the upcoming provincial election. Elliott was in the Nepean riding before last Wednesday’s PC Party leadership debate in Ottawa. She made the rounds in the area, spending time with Lisa MacLeod’s supporters and also spending time in Manotick with Goldie Ghamari’s Carleton riding supporters. This marks the first provincial election since Nepean-Carleton was split into two separate ridings. Elliott offered high praise for MacLeod during her visit. After dropping out of the last race that saw Patrick Brown win the party’s leadership, MacLeod threw her support behind Elliott, her long time friend. “Lisa and I were elected on the same day,” Elliott said. “We both won by-elections, and joined the caucus together. She has been a very good friend since
then.” Elliott said MacLeod remained neutral during the Tory campaign because of her role in the party as finance critic. Elliott has worked closely with NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod and actually joined the Tory caucus on the say day that MacLeod did. Both won by-elections to win their seats. “The Wynne Liberals have an urban focus that centres around Toronto,” Elliott said. “They have been ignoring the needs of Eastern Ontario’s rural and suburban communities.” As Elliott prepared for last weekend’s Progressive Conservative Leadership Convention, her message was consistent with what it was when she ran for the party’s leadership when Patrick Brown won the leadership. She summed it up with one sentence. “Life is becoming more unaffordable in Ontario,” Elliott said. Skyrocketing hydro rates and scandals that have carried high price tags have been an on-
going issue with the Wynne Liberals. They are affecting residents throughout the province, and they are hurting businesses. “The minimum wage increase hurt a lot of small businesses,” Elliott said. “It hurt in the fast food industry, where a lot of young people work for minimum wage, and it has hurt the grocery industry.” As a result of the increase, Elliott said that many small businesses have had to reduce the number of employees or cut back on their hours in order to survive. “In the long run, this minimum wage increase is hurting the people it was intending to help,” she said. Elliott said that she would not raise minimum wage as is planned next year. “The problem was that it was done too quickly, and too suddenly,” she said. “It presented a huge problem to small businesses because of the drastic increase. I would like to take the next increase and implement it over

four years, not one. That will lessen the immediate burden on businesses.” Elliott took part in the leadership debate in Ottawa Wednesday night. Although the situation with former leader Patrick Brown put the party behind the eight ball with regard to timing, Elliott remains positive that the Progressive Conservatives will finally be able to topple the Liberal Government. “Sure, we are close to an election, but I have never seen so many people interested in our party’s leadership race and with what we are doing,” Elliott said. “People are engaged right now and they see the positive things we are doing as a party.”

Sense of optimism shared at 14th annual Barrhaven Networking Breakfast More than 100 of Barrhaven’s business and community leaders shared a sense of optimism at the 14th Annual Barrhaven Community Networking Breakfast at Cedarhill Golf Club last month. Members of the Barrhaven Lions Club, the Barrhaven BIA, the South Nepean Rotary Club, the Barrhaven Legion and the West Ottawa Board of Trade were in attendance as Mayor Jim Watson and Jim Orban of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute delivered speeches. The event was originally hosted by Councillor Jan Harder as a fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Emcee Rod Vanier of the South Nepean Rotary Club and Watson both talked of how the Canada 150 celebrations in both the community and the entire city. “Who here feels a sense of optimism about 2018?” he asked enthusiastically as the roomful of people raised their hands. Watson thanked the “leaders of the community” at the breakfast and proudly spoke of the spirit of the city. “We are very blessed in Ottawa,” he said. “We have the highest number of volunteers per capita among any city in Canada.” Watson praised Harder for her work not only in Barrhaven, but also on the city’s planning committee. “Jan has been a great councillor and fiend for many years,” he said. “We recently celebrated her 20th year in politics. Under her leadership, the planning committee went through 107 applications, and these are large files.” Watson also talked about the BARRHAVEN
growing business community in Barrhaven, including the recently opened CitiGate campus along Strandherd near the 416, with Tomlinson as its first major tenant. “We need to have businesses here in the southwest end of the city so that we are not just a bedroom community,” he said. Watson also praised Harder for her work on precision agriculture. The experimental farm along Fallowfield road on the north edge of Barrhaven has been a vortex nationally in meshing smart technology with farming. “Precision agriculture is going to be transforming our city and our planet,” Watson said. “There are more than 2000 farms in Ottawa, and it the largest agricultural city in Canada. Eighty-two per cent of our land mass is rural agricultural and forest.” Watson commented that one thing he loves to show visitors from other cities is an overlay map, where the cities of Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal all fit within the City of Ottawa limits. After Jim Orban gave a thorough presentation on the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, it was time for the crowd to disperse and take on the day. You could feel the optimism that Rod Vanier talked about at the beginning of the meeting. This year will be great, Ottawa is a great city, and there is no better place to be in Ottawa than Barrhaven. Now if only someone could figure out how to efficiently get us all downtown in the morning and back home at night. P.O. Box 567 Manotick, Ontario Tel: 613-692-6000 www.barrhavenindependent.ca

I just take it one day at a time and focus on living, not dwelling on dying.” The disease has limited the things that Bailey can do. She was an avid golfer and is still passionate abut the game. She also has a goal in mind. “We call it the six-minute marathon,” she says. “For someone with PAH to be able to walk for six minutes is a big challenge, and it shows remarkable progress. That’s one of the goals I am aiming for.” In an effort to say thank you, give back to the community and to assist other PAH patients, Bailey is helping to organize the Unmasking PH Masquerade Ball.

Ka Familia celebrates one year of being one of Barrhaven’s finest restaurants he is passionate about his cooking and his restaurant. When he moved to Canada, Dhom 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, Dhom helped solidify that reputation. “Filipino Fusion is a combination of Asian and Spanish cuisine with an international flare,” Dhom said. “We do steaks in a traditional Filipino adobo sauce. We cook with a lot of pork, noodles and rice. The fusion gives me the opportunity to expand on the cultural cuisine by adding Filipino taste to international dishes, and vice versa.” Dhom says the menu is his creative playground. He is in the process of creating new dishes that will appear on the new menu in the spring. One thing that is staying on the menu is the Asian lamb shank braised with San Miguel beer. It has become known as his signature dish among patrons. “Pork is a staple in the Philippines,” he said. “I always joke that if you give me some pork, I can prepare it 10,000 different ways. Our Filipino pork dishes have been very popular.” The ingredients used at the restaurant are fresh and local. Dhom said they
can also cater to people with vegan and gluten free diets. There is also a selection of Ontario wines, European beers, and espresso. They also serve Filipino roasted rice coffee, as well as San Miguel beer from the Philippines, and Filipino brandy and whisky. While the restaurant is becoming a favourite spot for many foodies in Barrhaven, Ka Familia has also developed a customer base regionally. The quality of the food, the ambience of the restaurant and the exceptional customer service has had customers coming back. “We have regular customers that come in from Kingston, Limoges, Gatineau, Orleans, Stittsville, Kemptville and Ottawa,” he said. “We also had an event here with 22 diplomats from Asia for a dinner that was a farewell for an ambassador. The dinner was hosted by the Filipino Embassy, and I guess the best compliment we had is that they have been back to eat here again.” Dhom said that he is happy to be a part of the community, and hopes to become a staple business in Barrhaven for years to come. “We take pride in our customer service, and in our food,” he said. “We love Barrhaven, and we want to be a part of the community for a long time. We hope people
will take advantage of our Mother’s Day Brunch to experience what we have to offer for the first time.” While the Queen won’t likely be making a Royal Visit to Barrhaven to eat at Ka Familia, she was impressed with Dhom’s cooking. “I got a very nice bottle of champagne as a thank you,” he said. Dhom Rosete celebrates his first anniversary next month as owner of Ka Familia, a Filipino-Fusion restaurant on Strandherd Road at Longfields Drive.

Executive Chef Dhom Rosete once served food to Queen Elizabeth. Now, he is serving food to Barrhaven. Ka Familia, located at Strandherd near Longfields, is celebrating its first anniversary next moth. Dhom says the first year has been a whirlwind for the unique restaurant. “It was better than we expected, and we are coming off a very successful Valentine’s Day,” he said. “We also did some Christmas parties and had a great Christmas Eve. This year, we are planning something for Easter, and we are going to do a big Mother’s Day brunch and we are already taking reservations. It will feature the traditional Canadian Sunday brunch items along with some Filipino fusion dishes.” After spending 26 years as a restauranteur and chef in England and Wales, Dhom came to Canada eight years ago. His restaurant is unique not only to Barrhaven, but to Ottawa. Working with his family, he is going back to his culinary roots and passion to open what will be a Filipino-fusion restaurant. “Filipino food is a natural centre of fusion to many different cultures,” Dhom 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.” Dhom 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 fivestar chef and become a restauranteur. While he is modest about having prepared food for the Queen,

Inter-generational program sets Educara Montessori School apart
Sometimes, the timing has to be just right. That was the case for Jody McCombe and Kayleigh McEwan when they started their business together. McCombe and McEwan own Educara, a Montessori school operating in the Viva Retirement Centre at Strangers and Crestview in Barrhaven. “This was something we wanted to do and the perfect situation came up,” said McCombe. The perfect situation is something that separates Educara from other Montessori schools. With the retired residents at Viva, Educara has developed an intergenerational learning program that sees the children interact with their “grand friends” at the retirement centre. The Educara childcare centre comprises of two well equipped classrooms catering to toddlers (18 to
30 months old) and preschoolers (30 months to 5 years old) Their pedagogy modifies the Montessori philosophy by incorporating more play based exploration and experiences and follows the principles of belonging, well being, engagement and expression. Within the Educara childcare programs, respect for all persons, cultures and view children as being competent, capable, curious and rich in potential are coveted. The classrooms provide a prepared environment in which children become fully engaged in active exploration, play, and inquiry. Activities that evolve from the child’s natural curiosity are promoted – active play that allows children to explore with their bodies, minds, and senses, stimulating them to ask questions, test theories, solve problems, engage in creative thinking, and make meaning of
the world around them. “We work with Viva and we have pre-scheduled activities every week,” McCombe said. “They do things together like baking, crafts, there will be egg decorating for Easter, things like that.” The children and the seniors also share a vegetable garden. “It’s part of our farm to table program,” McCombe said. “The children eat the vegetables they grow at snack time. They are very proud of everything they do.” McCombe and McEwan met through the Montessori program. McEwan was a teacher, and McCombe was a parent with a child in her class. “My mother was a Montessori teacher,” said McEwan. “All of the teachers who work here are Montessori certified. In a lot of daycares, only one staff member is certified.

the activities, but it has grown to the point where they are doing the activities side by side. There were some residents who were watching at first and then got involved.” For more information on the Edcuara Montessori School, visit www.educara.ca, email email@example.com, or call 613.702.1116.

Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) to focus on Distracted Driving & Speeding
This month STEP will focus on distracted driving and speeding in the City of Ottawa. Between 2012 and 2016, there were 28,603 reported collisions involving distracted driving resulting in 21 fatalities and 5,767 injuries. Throughout the same timeframe there were 15,367 collisions resulting in 3,028 injuries and 55 fatalities because of speeding. There are some shocking numbers and we all have to do our part to make sure, when we are on the roads we are driving safe and following the rules and posted speed limits.
Thursday, March 8th marked International Women’s Day. In celebration of this international day of recognition, I was joined by leaders of our community for Mayor Jim Watson’s breakfast reception at City Hall with special guests of honour. Speakers for this event included Her Excellency Susan le Jeune d’Allegeershecque, British High Commissioner to Canada, Her Excellency Kareen Rispal, Ambassador of France to Canada, Her Excellency Sabine Sparwasser, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Canada, and Her Excellency Kelly Craft, Ambassador of the United States to Canada.
School continues from page 8 “They can accomplish a lot if we let them. They are treated like little adults. There is no yelling, and it is a calm environment. Children don’t like conflict.” McCombe said that while many children thrive in the Montessori program, it is not for everyone. “We understand that you can’t take a group of kids and treat them like 32 kids fitting into a round hole,” she said. “Every child is different.” The intergenerational element of the program is something that enhances the Montessori experience for the children. “It’s really wonderful to see how it has grown,” said McEwan. “The children are start-

The IndependentNEWS transpo continues from page 1 Many of the problems were centered around the bus on route 95, which replaced the 177 bus. Many of the attendees at the meeting referred to the route as a “milk run.” Amanda Bernardo, who triggered the #LifeOnThe95 Twitter campaign that was featured in the Barrhaven Independent last month, caught Harder’s attention. Harder is also a frequent rider on the bus and has experienced what the commuters are going through. “The buses are always full, drivers pass riders waiting for the bus, and the buses are often late or even missing,” said Harder of the 95 route. Half Moon Bay resident Robert Finkle was one of the OC Transpo riders who is dissatisfied with the service.
“I don’t think the 95 is planned well,” said Finkle. “And snow removal on River Mist is an issue.” The number of different routes in and out of Barrhaven is limited, and the number of riders exceeds the number of seats on buses in commuting hours. Finkle said that while getting downtown in the morning is one issue, getting back to Barrhaven on the 95 is a whole new adventure. Those at the meeting described getting onto a bus downtown as a freefor-all. While the 95 bus is the one that heads to Barrhaven, the bus is jammed with fake riders – those who get on the bus and only stay on for a couple of stops before getting off – are preventing commuters to and from Barrhaven
from catching their bus. “I am tired of being stranded at Fallowfield,” Finkle said. “I wait 40 minutes there for a bus. If I go an alternate route, I get stuck at (RioCan) Marktplace. I don’t complain because by the time I get home, I am just too tired to. The older parts of Barrhaven have the 270 series. Why can’t we?” But the grass is not necessarily greener on the 270-series buses. Renee Berry, who uses the 277 bus to get to and from work at the Bank and Slater area downtown, says that the service is the worst she has
seen in 20 years of commuting to and from Barrhaven. “There have been mornings where it has been cold and snowing and I have waited for 40 minutes at my stop for a bus,” Berry said. “When I called OC Transpo, I was told the buses were running a half hour late. So then where was the bus scheduled for a half hour earlier?” Berry said that getting a bus home from downtown is also difficult. Her route to Barrhaven is jammed with riders heading to Baseline station.

transpo continues from page 10 She called for the return of express routes to and from Barrhaven, and and several others said they would be willing to pay a premium for that service.a Harder was as frustrated as the commuters. She said the problems began with the cancellation of the O-Train service that would have served Barrhaven more than a
decade ago. “That was a 13-11 vote that we lost, and look where it has left us?” said Barrhaven. “The east-west corridors in Barrhaven are very poorly served again, because the spine of the system is all north-south. It should not take an hour and a half for commuters to catch a bus and then get downtown,
and then go through an even more difficult process in getting home.” Complaints and comments were compiled and have been presented to OC Transpo to be addressed. Harder said she wants to host a follow-up meeting in April with OC Transpo present so that the concerns of commuters can be addressed.

by Phill Potter for pleasure? “I enjoy reading sports magazines and articles. As well as watching sports videos and highlights.” Who is your favourite author? “One of my favorite novels is We All Fall Down by Eric Walters.” Favourite Song: “One of my favourite songs is 50 Ways To Say Goodbye by Train, and I love to listen to Christmas music.” Favourite Movie: Home Alone Accomplishments: “The accomplishments I have achieved are: Honour Roll since grade 7, receiving the Director of Education Award, elected as the CO-PM of St. FX High School and a Core Leader at Leadership Camp. I
have also been able to play on many school sport teams such as football, basketball and soccer.” Activities/Interests: “Being one of the Co-PM’s involves planning school events and activities that go on within the school. Soccer has always been a big part of my life. I started playing at the age of three, and have been playing ever since. This past year I started coaching with OSU; working with the kids in First Kicks and Pre-Academy. This has allowed me be to develop my leaderships skills even further, work with kids, learn new techniques, and gain experience in the coaching field.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I decided to get involved with my student council, because I wanted to make high school as enjoyable for others as it has been for me. I wanted to enforce change within my school to get students more involved, to participate in my events, join sports teams/clubs, and increase the school spirit.
The reason why I enjoy school so much, is because when first starting grade 7, my teachers told me to get involved with school. They helped push me to join clubs and sports teams. This pushed me to meet new people, and allowed me to grow as a person. This is why I feel it’s important to make high school as enjoyable as possible for students, because they will learn a lot about themselves during the few years of high school. I got involved with soccer, because over the years I have developed a love for the game, and could honestly not live without soccer in my life. After breaking my collarbone a few months ago during a soccer game, I realized how much more I appreciated the love of the game. It has showed me that I do want soccer and sports to be a part of my life as I get older.”

A: That depends where you’re going, where you’re staying and for how long. Immunizations are one of the most effective ways to Dana macDonald prevent travel-related infections. Pharmacist Canadians should have already been vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and polio as part of their routine immunization schedule. Your pharmacist can tell you if you’ll need a booster shot for any of these and can help you with immunization recommendations for a variety of destinations. It’s good to plan ahead though as some vaccinations must be given at least 4 to 6 weeks before travel to be effective.

It’s time for the snowfall to come to an abrupt end As you read this edition of the Barrhaven Independent you will likely just have returned from a March Break vacation or maybe a visit? You will also have moved your clocks forward last weekend. I surely hope the daily snowfall comes to an abrupt end and that springtime 2018 is right around the corner. I have my fingers crossed and I am hoping for a very nice summer but who knows? One thing I do know is that this year you will have the opportunity to vote twice. In June voters will be encouraged to vote in a Provincial election and in October in a municipal election. You may not be able to count on Mother Nature but you will be voting.

International Women’s Day
Celebrating its second year, this fun filled musical night will be held on March 23rd, 2018 at the beautiful setting of All Saints, 10 Blackburn Avenue, Ottawa! Launched last year, this event is dedicated to raise funds to directly benefit the women and children at Nelson House who are fleeing domestic violence. It’s unfortunate that our services are still needed in 2018 but as long as family violence continues, shelters remain vital to those who are fleeing violence. Shelters such as Nelson House are crucial for providing safety for women and children and are often an important stepping stone towards rebuilding personal and financial independence. We are delighted to welcome back the popular local talent, The Verdict, a nine piece rock n’ roll band that describes itself as a band (mostly) comprised of (mostly) hard working Ottawa lawyersby-day-musicians-bynight. The event promises to be a wonderful celebration, complete with rock n’ roll music, dancing, delicious hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. Please consider including event information in your newsletter/website or any other social media platform. Thank you for your consideration and support!

Harder continues from page 17 The employment opportunities are offered on job sites, internet ads, unsolicited emails, unsolicited texts, or in the newspapers. On other occasions, people who are posting their résumé online are being offered jobs. Those who respond to the ads are told that they have received the job and are then sent payment by cheque, e-transfer or other means, which they are then instructed to deposit into their bank account. They are then asked to send a large portion of the money to somewhere else; usually by purchasing pre-paid gift cards or depositing the money into a bank account provided to them by the suspects. Once they send the money on, the bank calls to inform them that the cheque or e-transfer was fraudulent and that their account is overdrawn or frozen. Sometimes the job might
be as a “secret shopper” to test the services of a bank, store, or money transfer service. On other occasions, the victim believes that they are helping the suspect set up a new business in the city. The Ottawa Police Service Organized Fraud Unit is asking persons who are or have been victims of this scam to contact the Ottawa Police and make a report at 613-236-1222 ext. 7300. The call centre is actively tracking all complaints and forwarding them to our Organized Fraud investigators. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by downloading the Ottawa Police app. Ottawa residents have identified traffic safety as a top priority.
