Prime Minister in Barrhaven to visit with local Muslim leaders Barrhaven Independent Staff Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was in Barrhaven on Sun., March 17 as he visited the mosque at the South Nepean Muslim Centre on Woodroffe Ave. The visit was made as a gesture to show solidarity with the local Muslim community in the wake of the attack on a mosque in New Zealand Fri., March 15. Fifty people were killed and another 41 were injured in the attack, which happened during prayer time. Trudeau was joined by Nepean Liberal MP Chandra Arya and Ottawa-West Nepean MP Anita Vandenbeld dur-

ing his visit. “Islamophobia & hate have no place anywhere, & have a devastating impact,” the Prime Minister tweeted following the visit. “I visited the South Nepean Muslim Community Mosque tonight, to mourn for those killed in the New Zealand terrorist attack & listen to young people about how we can keep building safe & inclusive communities.” On the Barrhaven Independent Facebook page, Trudeau drew praise from local readers and residents. His visit to the Barrhaven mosque was called a gesture of peace, and he was complimented for his kindness.

Barrhaven native Jessica Hyba among those killed in Ethiopian plane crash By Charlie Senack Barrhaven native Jessica Hyba was one of 18 Canadians who were killed when the Ethiopian Airlines plane they were on crashed in the farmlands off Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa, on Sunday, March 10. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane headed to Nairobi, Kenya, crashed only six minutes after takeoff, killing all 157 passengers and crew on board. Hyba, 43, grew up in Old Barrhaven and attended Jockvale Elementary before going to Confederation High School. She then moved to Banff, Alberta, where she lived for a number of years. “The Banff days were like the golden days,” said Jessica Mackie, a childhood friend of Hyba’s, who quickly followed the then spontaneous teen out west alongside a dozen or so of their other mutual Barrhaven friends.

“They were the best days of our lives. We snowboarded, and hiked and played in the mountains. We had so much fun.” Mackie and her brother, Joshua Olszynko, have many fond memories of growing up on the same street in Barrhaven with Hyba. They played in the farmers fields across the street from their house, socialized near the Walter Baker Centre, and saw each other on an almost daily basis. “When we moved to Barrhaven, there was only a few houses and she was one of them. She was the only kid on the street who was my age,” said Olszynko. “We used to play with each other every day… (doing) simple things like playing with sticks and stones and building forts and checking out beehives and other things kids do in fields.” In 2001, Hyba returned to Ottawa to work for CARE Canada, a humani-

tarian organization that helps women and girls in developing countries lift themselves and their families out of poverty and out of crisis, according to its website. “(Jessica) worked with CARE early in her career in Canada and in Indonesia as part of the response to the Indian Ocean tsunami emergency effort,” CARE Canada said in a statement. Most recently, Hyba worked with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as the organization’s senior external relations officer in Mogadishu, Somalia. She joined the UNHCR in Iraq in 2013, before landing at the organizations headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Throughout Hyba’s 20 year career in the humanitarian sector, she worked in many war-torn countries, said her childhood friend Joshua Olszynko. “Out of all the ways for her to go… she lived in

such dangerous war zones and different places that were just so dangerous to live in and she had some stories,” he said. But it’s not the humanitarian work friends of Hyba are remembering — but the personally, charm and character she brought with her everywhere she went. Longtime friend Jessica Mackie credits all of her success in life to Hyba, and says she always helped encourage her to step outside of her comfort zone. “Jessie is my mentor,” she said. “She inspired me to do almost everything I’ve ever done in my life. She’s inspired me to travel, to study; she’s inspired me to not take life so seriously.” “She was such a force,” Mackie added. “She is the most energetic and funny person you will have ever met in your life.” Those are sentiments Mackie’s brother, Olszynko, echoed.

“She just made people feel special,” he said. “When they were in her circle, everyone was special to her and everybody had their own special connec-

tion. Everyone felt really social and her ability to get along with people and her character.”

 Julian Daher’s and Alexa De-Jourdan‘s Grade five French immersion classes at St. Benedict’s Elementary School took part in the L’Avenir d’Ottawa and Beyond project.

Barrhaven students provide input on what Ottawa should look like in 2036 By Charlie Senack

How will our city look in 2036? That’s what grade five students at St. Benedict’s Elementary School in Half Moon Bay are trying to figure out. They are part of the L’Avenir d’Ottawa and Beyond project, an initiative that boasts students’ perspectives, ideas, and suggestions on how they want their city to look like in the year 2036. It’s about putting Ottawa on the global map — and students’ perspectives are being sought after to help in the planning process with the City of Ottawa.

It focuses on the six C’s which are creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, character, citizenship and communication. “Through the lens of Deep Learning here at the Ottawa Catholic School Board, we strive to promote meaningful learning partnerships while leveraging digital technologies to break down the four walls of the classroom and take their learning to new heights,” said Lisa Hurd, Vice Principal at St. Benedict School.

 Hours of Operation: Monday
 Monday – Friday 8am 8pm Saturday
 Saturday – 8am 6pm Sunday
 Sunday – 9am 5pm




“In partaking in this project, students are actively involved in the planification process of what they want their City of Ottawa to look like in the future,” said Grade five teacher Alexa De-Jourdan. “Through creativity and collaboration, students will devise an outlook on what our city will look, see, and feel like in the year 2036.” Ella Marcogliese is a Grade five student in De-Jourdan’s class. She has enjoyed working on the “Deep Learning” project because it allows her to think outside the box and use critical thinking skills to solve problems.

“As a student who is doing this project, I now realize that I can change the future, just by doing this project with my class,” said Marcogliese. “I think that it is important that students like me have this experience.” Deep Learning is where the education system is moving. For the past number of years, the Ottawa Catholic School Board has been encouraging teachers to use this modern day educational tool in their classrooms — with the intention of getting students to be creative, connected, and collaborative life-long problem solvers.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Local commuters one step closer to light rail as Phase 2 approved By Charlie Senack

Shovels will soon be in the ground for Phase 2 of Ottawa’s light rail transit project. On Wednesday, March 6, council voted 19-3 in favour of the $4.6-billion Stage 2 transit expansion. It will connect the city by train west to Baseline station and Moodie Drive, east to Montreal Road and Place d’Orleans, and south to the airport and Bowesville Road in Riverside South. “I think phase two is vitally important for the east end, the west end and the south end of the city,” Mayor Jim Watson said. “We can’t get on to going to Kanata, Stittsville and Barrhaven without Phase 2.” Many councillors, however, were reluctant about voting for the Stage 2 LRT project, when they received hundreds of pages of documents to look over only 12 days before the meeting. Somerset ward councillor Catherine McKenney brought a motion forward to delay the vote until March 27, which was supported by six councillors including Ward 22 representative, Carol Anne Meehan. It was voted down by council 16-6. Meehan, a first time councillor, brought many concerns to the council table during Wednesday’s meeting — including the city singing a contract with SNC-Lavalin, a group that has been under fire recently for their involvement with projects around the country. “SNC-Lavalin was the lowest bidder and their projects have ended up — well just simply to say… there have been major problems,” Meehan said. “They bid low and they are under deliv-

ering.” Despite her concerns, Meehan voted in favour of the Stage 2 LRT budget, because she did not want to do anything that would “jeopardize” getting trains out to Riverside South. The three councillors who voted against the budget were Diane Deans, Rick Chiarelli and Shawn Menard. Phase 2 will help the residents of Riverside South, as well as those in Barrhaven who opt to cross the Vimy Bridge and commute from the east side of the Rideau River. Riverside South currently houses around 16,000 residents, and is increasing by about 2,000 people a year. The expansion to Riverside South will start at the existing Greenboro Station in Ottawa South, and will travel to Limebank Road. In May 2018, it was announced that property developers Urbandale Corporation and Richcraft Developments would throw an additional $30 million into the pot, which would go on top of the $50 million the then Liberal provincial government promised. That brings the total cost of the Trillium Line expansion to $80 million. At the time, Terry Nichols, president of the Urbandale Corporation, said that the expansion will help serve the residents of Riverside South — especially with the population of the growing community expected to reach 55,000 people within the next ten years. “(It’s) one of the first communities in Ottawa to be built and designed with rail transit already in place prior to a significant of the built out already being completed,” Nichols said in May 2018. The total cost for the entire Phase 2 expansion is

2364 Roger Stevens Drive, North Gower

$4,657,445,229 — around $1.2 billion more than what the city estimated before asking for construction bids. Mayor Watson says he met with Premier Doug Ford earlier this month, who verbally promised that the government would still fund the Stage 2 expansion. Watson says he expects some “good news” later this month. Shovels for the project are expected to be in the ground sometime this year. If there are no more delays, the Trillium Line expansion out to Riverside South and the Ottawa Airport is expected to be completed sometime in 2022. The Confederation Line expansion in the east is expected to be completed by 2024, and its expansion out to the west is expected to be completed by 2025. Watson says he realizes that their will be traffic and public transportation delays while Stage 2 is being built, but says the city is doing


everything they can to keep it to a minimum. He adds that the pros will outweigh the cons, and says this project will determine the future for our city. “We have taken a very significant step — a historic step — in moving forward with a plan that will help to

really determine how our city is going to grow,” Watson said. “How we are going to reduce our GHD footprint, and ultimately how this is going to act as a stimulant for economic development in all parts of the city.” And for those Barrhaven residents who are wondering

when the trains will be rolling through their neighbourhood, Coun. Jan Harder says that will be happening after Phase 2 is complete. Phase 3 will bring the trains past Baseline Station down the current bus rapid transitway, and into future “Barrhaven Downtown.”

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Canadian Housing Benefit will help 300,000 families in Canada By Chandra Arya Nepean MP

Affordable housing is more than just bricks and mortar. It’s about improving the lives of families by relieving the burden of high housing costs, so that they have more money left over every month for groceries, transportation, warm clothing, and the unexpected costs of living. Since 2015, our government has made affordable housing a priority, launching Canada’s first ever National Housing Strategy. All Canadians have a right to an affordable home where they Like us on Facebook Barrhaven Independent Follow us on Twitter @BarrhavenIndy Listen to our podcast on SoundCloud Barrhaven Independent

can feel safe and warm. We’re working hard so that families don’t have to decide between making rent and putting their kid in hockey or saving for their future education. The goals of the strategy are to: • Reduce chronic homelessness by 50%. • Remove more than 530,000 households out of housing need. • Create 100,000 new



housing units: four times more than what the previous government did during the last 10 years. • Repair and renew more than 300,000 housing units • Protect an additional 385,000 households from losing an affordable place to live • Meeting the housing needs of Canadians, particu-

larly seniors, women and children fleeing family violence, Indigenous people, persons with disabilities, those dealing with mental health and addiction issues, veterans, and young adults • Ensuring that future governments continue to provide Canadians with adequate housing through new legislation

• Giving a voice to vulnerable groups, including people who have experienced homelessness, to ensure that the Strategy supports those in housing need A key part of the NHS is the Canada Housing Benefit. Our government will work with provinces and territories to develop a $4 billion Canada Hous-

ing Benefit to be launched in 2020 to respond to local housing needs and priorities. Once fully implemented, the Canada Housing Benefit will: assist at least 300,000 families; provide an estimated average of $2,500 per year to each household recipient; and be delivered directly to households.

call home,” he said. “Not only will students have the chance to learn and share their ideas of what a “perfect city” entails, but their input and zest for innovation will be brought to the planning table where the future fabric of Ottawa will be sewn.” The project also comes at the same time the city is writing the new Official Plan which will be a template for how the city will be developed in the future. The city is currently working on

public consultations, and in 2020, a draft Official Plan will be tabled at Planning Committee and Council. Approval the for new Official Plan is expected by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing in 2022. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said the students suggestions and ideas will be looked at when drafting up the Official Plan, and said now is a great time to do it while public consultations are underway.

“I have so much confidence in these kids,” she said. “Some people asked me if I thought that Grade five was too young, I absolutely don’t. They are thinking about their surroundings (and) environment.” “They listen to what their parents are talking about,” Harder added. “They know that we don’t have good bus service, they know that we need better roads, they are thinking about what kinds of jobs they want available.”

STUDENTS continues from page 3 Grade five teacher Julian Daher has been a proud champion of this project since St. Benedicts started it this fall. He says it has been a great way to get the students involved in the community, and has also educated them on many city-wide issues including the light rail transit project, the condition of roads and the problems with Barrhaven’s OC Transpo system. “It boasts student voice and agency in the city they

A middle ground is needed on cell phone ban from schools For all the criticism that the Ontario Progressive Conservative Government is facing, their ban on the use of cell phones in public schools is something desperately needed. The announcement was made by Ontario Education Minister Lisa Thompson last week. “Ontario’s students need to be able to focus on their learning – not their cellphones,” she wrote. “By banning cellphone use that distracts from learning, we are helping students to focus on acquiring the foundational skills they need like reading, writing and math.” We all got along in classes for hundreds of years without the use of cell phones. A generation ago, any distractions like that were unheard of in the classroom. You were there to learn. You sat through a class and paid attention. You didn’t have the right to have ear phones on listening to music or podcasts, nor could you take pictures or videos of your friends in class and post them on Instagram. Some will argue that this is the new playing field that millennials live in. Bull crap. When it comes right down to it, texting and social media and even playing Fortnite on phones is something that is done by students today because they are bored. Maybe that is a broad statement that sounds harsh, but is it in any way incorrect or inaccurate? It has always been that way, though previous generations had to be more creative in how they dealt with boredom. Obviously, there has to be a middle ground. There are lockdowns in schools, and students need their phones in situations like that. There are also safety issues such as when or which parent will be picking up a child from school. So maybe banning the phones is not the right verbiage, but perhaps a rule that a phone just be powered off unless it is being used specifically for a class lesson would make sense. Using a phone to record a lecture or class is something that many students take advantage of. Some students also use the calculators on their phones in math class – we’re not sure when students stopped having to do math by hand and actually learn it. Every year, students go through EQAO testing. We would love to see the results of today’s students against those of students 10, 25 or even 50 years ago. Our bet is that today’s students would not come close to the results of students from years gone by. They have remarkable skills in other areas, but the basics have fallen by the wayside. And maybe it’s good for kids to learn to cope with being bored from time to time. It will prepare them for the future. Especially if they work for the federal government.

My lifelong battle with an eating disorder Hello. My name is Jeff and I have an eating disorder. (This is the part where all of you reading, in unison, say, “Hello Jeff.”) Okay, by eating disorder, I don’t mean it’s like an Olson Twin kind of thing or even a My 600-Pound Life kind of thing. It’s much simpler. When I eat food, I keep missing my mouth. The Diva can pretty much use my shirt as my agenda at the end of the day. She will examine it and say something like, ‘Oh, this looks like dried salsa from about 8 a.m. and the angle of the spill looks like you were driving so you probably had a breakfast burrito from the McDonald’s Drive-Thru. And it’s going to be really hard to get the mustard out of this shirt because it looks like it landed on you at about 1:15 p.m., just around the time you filled up with gas at the McEwen Station in Kemptville so I am guessing you had a jumbo hot dog off the grill for lunch. And there are two distinct Diet Coke markings from different times on your shirt. Am I going to have to tell your doctor at the headache clinic that you are drinking that much Diet Coke? Oh, and look, there’s some Nutella that you smeared on yourself from when you added it to your protein and spinach shake. And as far as that stain, I probably should have thought it through a bit more before I made lasagna. At least Raven (our Yorkie) was able to get most of what you spilled off your shirt.’ So you can imagine the conversation we had at the Champion factory outlet store last week. “This hoodie is amazing and it’s only $14,” I exclaimed to anyone within ear shot. It was a nice XXL hoodie with sleeves long enough for my 38” orangutan arms. But this hoodie was amazing. The Diva, however, didn’t look too impressed. “That’s nice Pumpkin,” she said with what I detected might be sarcasm. “There is only one problem.” “What’s that?” I asked. “It’s white. It’s completely white.” Yup. It was sarcasm. “What do you think is going to happen to that hoodie the first time you shovel food in your big gate?” Oh, yeah. Right. I hadn’t thought about it. I was too busy thinking of how cool I would look with my Champion hoodie and my black, low cut Converse shoes and my Hollister skinny jeans. I was going to look like I stepped right out of a Drake video. I turned to Steven for some reassurance. “This is a great hoodie, right?” “It’s sick,” he replied. I knew that meant good. I tried to speak his language.

“I’m going to look so deezed.” He stared at me. “Um, deezed doesn’t mean that,” he said. “Deezed means, like, muscular or jacked. It doesn’t mean cool.” If only they had a Rosetta Stone CD set to learn Millennial-speak.” “I’m still going to look deezed in this,” I said. “Yeah, I guess,” he FROM THE said, as he put his bud back in his ear and turned his attention back to the autotooned rap drivel with computerized drums and by Jeff Morris no instruments thumping out of his device. Clearly, he was on Team Diva for this one. “Seriously,” she interjected. “That is going to show every single thing you put in your mouth when you wear that. Remember that nice hoodie I got you for Christmas that was covered in Frank’s hot sauce within an hour of you putting it on?” Oh yeah. But I didn’t care. This was an amazing hoodie and it was $14. She shook her head at the checkout. Once in the car, we decided to make a game of it. What would Jeff spill on his new hoodie first? It would be a multiple choice. A would be ketchup. B would be peanut butter or a similar spread. Almond butter and Nutella were acceptable for B. For C, we went with Diet Coke or another staining beverage. D was pizza. I have a horrible track record in that department. E was egg yolk from an over easy egg that would slide off my fork onto my, um, deezed chest. And F was ‘other’. Everybody made their guesses. When we stopped for dinner on the way home – it was a big, sloppy, roadhouse burger – I was put to the test. But I called an audible. I walked into the restroom, took off my new white hoodie, and just wore the Adidas t-shirt that I was wearing underneath it. Adam, meanwhile, accidentally stuck his arm in a lake of ketchup on his plate. His brand new white Hollister jacket and the white shirt he was wearing both got it. He was crushed. I felt bad for him, but I couldn’t help but feel relieved that someone other than me had, well, Jeffed their clothes at dinner. The last stop on the way home was Walmart. The Diva got a Tide stick to get the stain out of Adam’s shirt and jacket. She looked over at me, and grabbed a handful of them. “We are going to keep these handy,” she said, giving me that look. I looked around Walmart and I faced the truth. I don’t need a Tide stick for when I eat. I need a shower curtain.

The application proposed a single storey building that could house up to 10 retail units. They are proposing 28 surface parking space. The applicant is proposing to rezone the land from ‘Development Reserve’ to ‘Local Commercial’. The intent of the LC zoning is to allow a variety of small, locally-oriented convenience and service uses to meet the needs of surrounding residential areas. We do not know yet what stores could be included in this development.

Official Plan Survey

The long-term goal is for Ottawa to grow into the most liveable mid-sized city in North America, and your insight is needed to make this happen. The City is collaborating with residents to gather input on the

key issues facing Ottawa today. Please let the City know what matters to you by answering a few questions. Your input will help it create the plans and policies that guide the growth of Ottawa. Visit ottawa.ca to complete the survey.

More trips will be added after O-train Line 1 opens. Currently the first morning trip on Route 275 now leaves from Cambrian at 7:07 a.m., and there are four morning trips. After the opening date of O-Train Line 1 is known, dates will be set for the introduction of these service improvements (approximately 3 weeks after train starts running). The addition to the route will be two earlier trips in the morning, leaving from Cambrian at approximately 06:00 and 06:30. These new trips are already listed in the test Ready for Rail travel planner, available at octranspo.com.

New Stormwater Fee

In May 2017, Phase 1 of the new stormwater fee was introduced where non-connected properties that previously did

not receive a water bill began seeing the phasein of the new stormwater fee on their 2017 property tax bills. Beginning in April 2019, the second and final phase of the new rate structure will take effect. The current rate structure is based on water consumption, a sewer surcharge, and a fixed fire supply. The new rate structure continues to include water and wastewater charges based on consumption. However, it also includes fixed charges to reflect the costs of supporting and maintaining our water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. Fire supply charges remain unchanged. The average single-family home customer, using 30 cubic metres every two months, will see little or no change to their bill with the new rate structure. The first water bill issued to each resident after April 1 will

be a transitional bill and will include a combination of the old and new rate structures. This bill will also include the 2019 water rates, as approved by Council as part of the 2019 Budget, which will be adopted in March. Residents will also begin to receive the re-designed water utility bill in March 2019. The new bill has been designed to be more user-friendly, easier to read, and easier to understand. Paper bills will be issued in the customer’s language of preference, English or French. Electronic billing will continue to be offered in both official languages. With the redesigned bill, residents will also get a new customer account number. Residents will receive a pamphlet (see below) in their water bills with information on the new rate structure and new components of the water bill. Additional information

is provided on ottawa.ca/ wws, including a helpful FAQ section.

New Hydro Ottawa Power Outage Reporting

cases, these mothers will return to their young. If you find a baby wild mammal on its own (skunk, raccoon, rabbit, squirrel, etc.), please contact the Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary first before calling 3-1-1. Please do not attempt to move the animal from its den/nest or to feed it. If a resident has already touched the animal, please return it to where it was found. It is a myth that the mother will reject her babies if they have been touched. In addition, please note BLRS only responds to calls about injured or sick small wild animals.

What to do: Orphaned Wildlife

With Spring on the way, By-law & Regulatory Services (BLRS) is preparing for an increase in calls regarding injured and orphaned wildlife. BLRS would like to remind residents that not all small wild animals found alone without an adult are orphans. It is very common for mothers to leave their babies in the nest or den while they forage for food. In the majority of

Walking into the Durham College competition on the first weekend of March, our first event this season, the RoboRavens were completely unprepared. Little did we know, this would turn in our favour. When playing matches, two alliances are formed of three teams each, working in unison to complete tasks and collect points. Considering our hindered game abilities, we had to start from square one when it came to strategy, going from a speedy, pointracking robot to a minimally scoring but very defense-capable player. This turned out to be a huge selling point during the final alliance selections for the playoffs, earning the RoboRavens a spot alongside the two highest-ranked teams at the event: the 610 Crescent Coyotes and 2200 MMRambotics. Our alliance triumphantly took first place, and we

Our world is saturated with technology and innovation, and the engineers of today are being challenged to inspire the engineers of the future — something the people at For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) have dedicated their genius to. With collaboration, mentorship, and Gracious Professionalism, teams of students all around the world build and compete with robots at district, provincial, national, and international events. Five said teams, including the Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School’s RoboRavens (team 4783), proudly call Ottawa their home. For the past seven years, the students of LDHSS have come together to undergo an

intense six-week build season, where we design, build, and program a robot to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition, also known as FRC. Using our no-experience-required recruiting methods, the RoboRavens gather students with various backgrounds and diverse skill sets. Through continuous outreach, the team has been commended on our over 30% female representation, as well as mentoring rookie teams, and performing beta tests on software for all of Canada. This season’s game had a space theme, requiring teams to place game pieces at various locations on the field. In order to improve our capabilities, the RoboRavens expanded our expertise by using tools and parts we had no experience with, but we also faced challenges that we were very lucky to have overcome. Many of our goals got knocked off the table, re-

Ottawa firefighters quickly knocked-down a blaze at a small store located in a strip mall on Greenbank Rd. in Barrhaven, on the evening of March 12. Crews arrived at the Afri Marketplace located at 808 Greenbank Rd. near Fallowfield Rd. around 9 p.m. after receiving multiple 9-1-1 calls reporting smoke and flames coming from the commercial structure. Afri Marketplace bills itself as a “one-stop shop for African products”, including food, clothing and hair products. They also have a small catering operation. An investigator was sent to the scene to determine the Charlie Senack photo cause. There were no reported injuries.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Now is the time to select and order wines for 2019 weddings

Are you or a close friend or family member planning a wedding in 2019? Nothing would make a nicer touch than personalized bottles of wine for the big day. “Now is the time for people to think about coming in and selecting the wine that would be perfect for the big day,” Anthony said. “The bottling and corking would be done six weeks later, most red wines need to age 3-8 months depending on the wine so prepare early”. While there are literally hundreds of wines to choose from at different price points and from various regions, Anthony said that Vintner’s Cellar option to create personalized labels is a feature that has made his wines very popular for weddings. “The label can turn the bottle of wine into a special keepsake from the day,” Anthony said. “It can be romantic, it can be fun – it’s something that can really reflect the personalities of the couple or the theme for their wedding.”

Anthony Prosty of Vintner’s Cellar has everything you need to make a perfect wine for your special day.

Often, consumers will gravitate to smaller businesses where they can build relationships with the employees, the managers, or even the owners of a certain business. They build trust, they enjoy a higher level of customer service, and they have a comfort level that they may not experience at a large or big box store.

While people often think of retail in this scenario, it goes beyond that.

Think of the multitude of facets in your life. Among them, there are many things you are willing to compromise on, but some things are nonnegotiable. Healthcare and Relationships are two things most are unwilling to gamble with and they go hand-in-hand in the hearing healthcare field. With studies now showing links between untreated hearing loss and memory, cognition, falls, social engagement, annual earnings and depression, not to mention its impact on your relationships, you will want to be proactive with even the slightest hearing loss…and you will want to be smart about it too. Because hearing loss is highly individualized, you will want a solution tailored to you and your needs, not a one-size-fits-all program. Finding that right solution is not a simple process. To be successful, you will want the assessments to be detailed, the selection unlimited and the flexibility maximized. The good news is that today’s many Manufacturers offer a great variety of solutions to meet all

Barrhaven Tech is a perfect example. Located at the strip mall at the traffic circle at Jockvale and Tartan, Barrhaven Tech offers the same services as many of the tech departments in the big chain stores. In many cases, however, they bring a higher level of customer service, more affordable prices, and a quicker turnaround. In fact, the business started as a

of the varying hearing needs, so finding what is best for you is possible. The key is to consult a clinician that can prescribe based on your unique needs rather than be limited by the employer’s pre-determined product port-folio. Offering just that is Hearing Freedom, a locally owned, grown, and operated clinic. Their grassroots approach is unfortunately very rare in today’s market where retail settings, larger clinics and Manufacturer owned chains dominate. The unique and refreshing approach that sets Hearing Freedom apart from other providers was established nearly 20 years ago when Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology, decided to do it her way. After interviewing for employment at many local clinics, she was disheartened to discover that the focus was always on sale targets and the company’s affiliation to certain Manufacturers. “That was not my idea of proper hearing health care,” says McNamee. “I came into this profession to improve my patients’ quality of life. To do so I need to consider everything available

solution to people who were frustrated by being in the customer service abyss of some large stores’ service departments. “Barrhaven Tech was started as a community resource to compete against the bigger players that don’t take the time to work, or to manage it locally,” said Barrhaven Tech owner Colin Browning. Store manager Kortnie Morin

met Browning on the softball diamond, and joined the business to help get it to the next level. “We handle problems with laptops and computers, and we diagnose and solve the problems quickly,” she said. “We do repairs on site, where a lot of other companies will send your product out for repairs. But what we also do is work with our customers to educate them and help

for each and every patient. I must do so with their particular needs and wants in mind. Compromising on hearing healthcare is not an option for me. Every single patient deserves the best, and that “best” is different from one person to the next. What works for one will not work for another. Blanket 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 assessment which is followed by a detailed needs assessment. Throughout, the patient’s opinions and concerns are 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 a 90-day trial period on all hearing aids. This extensive trial gives patients the confidence that they have chosen the right so-

them prevent similar problems in the future.” Barrhaven Tech handles a number of computer, laptop and IT issues. They have a working relationship with Totally Techy in the RioCan Mall, and they refer all of their cell phone issues and repairs to them. They, in turn, send their computer repair customers to Barrhaven Tech.

lution for them, their lifestyle and hearing needs.” In addition, there are no Hearing Instrument Practitioners or Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Freedom. Patients are rather seen by University trained and Professionally Regulated Audiologists, qualified to 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 aids,” 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.

IT continues from page 16 Once again, it’s the kind of relationship that can only be forged by locally owned, flexible businesses. “Barrhaven Tech is meant to bring our enterprise knowledge, tools and practices from big business to the community,” said Browning, who also owns and operates Browning IT out of the same location. “We’re focused on educating people on how to use the tools they already have, and to train on new ones.” Both Morin and Browning emphasized how they are there to work with businesses and not gauge them. They gave an example of how affordable they are to recover data from a damaged computer. While many businesses will charge the full download time for a disk recovery, Barrhaven Tech only charges for the time spent on the project. In other words, the recovery may run for three hours, but there may only be 15 minutes of work done to set up the download. Barrhaven Tech would only charge for that 15 minutes. Being a part of the community in Barrhaven is also important to Browning and his team. They have supported local charities, and have held an annual fundraising BBQ in front of their business for the past two years. A third will be coming up later this year. They were also a sponsor at the recent fundraiser for Upstream Ottawa at Greenfields in Barrhaven. To learn more about Barrhaven Tech, visit them at Tartan and Jockvale, or call 613.714.8800. You can email them at info@barrhaventech.com or visit them online at barrhaventech.com. The Barrhaven Business Profile is brought to you by the Barrhaven BIA.

6’9” forward wins Jack Donahue Trophy as MVP as Carleton wins 14th national title By Jeff Morris HALIFAX -- If there was ever a doubt whether or not Barrhaven’s Eddie Ekiyor is the best university basketball player in Canada, he put those doubts to rest last week. Ekiyor, the 6’9” former St. Mother Teresa High School student, was named tournament MVP as the Carleton Ravens thumped the defending champion Calgary Dinosaurs 83-49 in the championship game. It was the 14th national championship in the last 17 years for the Ravens. Ekiyor, who had 12 points and 15 rebounds in the final, won the Jack Donahue Trophy as the tournament MVP and was also one of five players named to the tournament all-star team. “We locked in defensively and we were focused,” Ekiyor said after

the game. The Ravens cruised past the Alberta Golden Bears 100-60 in the tournament opener. Ekiyor had 19 points and 10 rebounds despite playing only 22 minutes. He scored 10 points in the first quarter and had a spectacular, two-handed dunk off an offensive rebound. He was named Player of the Game. The Ravens got a scare in the semi-finals from Dalhousie University but hung on to win 76-65. With the game close in the final four minutes, Ekiyor made what may have arguably been Carleton’s play of the tournament when he blocked a shot by Keevan Venoit, who was driving on the baseline. Ekiyor followed the block up with two consecutive baskets to put the game out of reach. Ekiyor was named Player of the Game for scoring

21 points and adding 13 rebounds. For Ekiyor, it was his second national championship, with gold medals sandwiched around the bronze medal he earned with the Ravens last year. He told the Barrhaven Independent before the tournament that the bronze medal “still had a bitter taste,” and was a motivator for the Ravens to get back on top and win their 14th national championship. Before the tournament, Ekiyor was named a first team USports All-Canadian. Eddie Ekiyor of Barrhaven was the tournament MVP as the Carleton Ravens won their 14th national basketball championship in 17 years last week with a win over Calgary in the final.
