Myers Automotive forward Braxton Ross (88) unsuccessfully tries to tip the puck past Ottawa Jr. 67’s goalie Eaman Charles while Jakob MacRae defends the front of the net during Ontario East Minor Hockey League Major Peewee AAA playoff action at the Walter Baker Centre last Tuesday (March 20). The Jr. 67’s won the game 4-2 and currently lead the series 6-4. Game 6 and Game 7 (if necessary) were scheduled after BI’s print deadline. Players from the Nepean and Kanata Minor Hockey Associations play for the Myers AAA team, which until this year had been known as the Ottawa Jr. Senators.

Boundary issues in Half Moon Bay not likely to be fixed until 2022 election By Jeff Morris Barrhaven Independent A river runs through it. And in the case of the boundary between the Barrhaven Ward and the Rideau-Goulbourn Ward, so do a few houses, a bunch of front yards, and an entire community. Several homes in the Half Moon Bay community actually straddle the boundary line. It has caused some confusion for Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt and Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder. Adding to the complexity of the problem is that Harder’s priorities are urban and suburban By: Kellywhile LittleMoffatt’s are village and rural. “The boundary beIF YOU suffer tween the wards was from low back pain drawn up in 2005, before andthesciatica, 2006 election,” Mofof over million fatt 3said. “At the time, it

Easter is early again and unfortunately, we don’t know that “spring” is aware of this because as I write this there is still a whole lot of cold weather before us. I hear so many people, family members included, saying, “why do we live here?” Heck, every place has its ups and downs it’s highly unlikely a tornado will devastate us or a tsunami will rise story’s above the landscape causing the Jock River to present a “wall of water”. A hurricane is unlikely. Regardless “bring on spring” please! A quick drive around the neighbourhood has shown the toll winter has taken on our roads and lots. There are numerous potholes and with the recent snow, it has been difficult to repair them. Please keep reporting them to 311 so they can be repaired as soon as the weather conditions allow it. Furthermore, some of the corner lots have been damaged by plows. Please make sure that you call 311 to report any damage so that you are on the list for the spring repairs. With the extreme fluctuation in weather (remember the Spring-like conditions we had in February?) there has not been enough frost to protect the lawns. Finally, the construction taking place in some neighbourhoods have also wreaked havoc on the roads. Besides the winter debris, construction has left roads dusty and dirty. Until the snow clears, and from the weather reports it will be a while yet, the sweepers cannot do their job efficiently It’s going to be a busy

Watch what you say Will the Ontario Liberals never learn? Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod went off in the legislature – and rightly so – at Queen’s Park last week after Liberal Economic Development Director Steven Del Duca referred to her actions as “adorable.” The Toronto Star reported that MacLeod stood up in the legislature and referenced the fact that 2,000 people showed up at a pep rally for PC leader Doug Ford. “It’s adorable to watch the member across the floor talk about Doug Ford and the crowd that showed up to see him,” said Del Duca. Not surprisingly, MacLeod took exception to Del Duca’s choice of words. “Would the minister call one of his male colleagues ‘adorable,’ and does he think this is appropriate? Will he apologize to me?” Del Duca did apologize to MacLeod, and also issued a written apology that was delivered to MacLeod and to reporters. It also appeared on Twitter. “I’m sorry for not using a more appropriate term in my response to your question this morning,” the apology by Del Duca stated on Twitter. “It was never my intention to offend you. Once again, I’m truly sorry.” MacLeod accepted the apology. Unfortunately, Del Duca was not the only provincial Liberal to stick his foot in his mouth. Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa jokingly referred to a group of male and female staffers at a hospital as eye candy. Tory MPP Laurie


Scott took exception to the comment. “What a day it’s been for women in politics,” she was quoted as saying in the Toronto Star. “We have the minister of economic development calling my female colleague ‘adorable’ in a demeaning and condescending manner (and) the Minister of Finance called the women behind him at an announcement today ‘eye candy’,” Scott said. “How is this acceptable?” While Del Duca immediately apologized, Sousa took offence to Scott’s insinuations. Later in the day, however, he did apologize. The reaction to the comments has been predictable. Progressive Conservatives are crying shame on the Liberals for their sexist remarks. Liberals, meanwhile, say the PC’s are overreacting to comments where the context has been exaggerated. But the fact that these remarks were newsworthy only tells us that the microscope that politicians are under is increasingly intensifying. The Liberals politicians should know that they will be called out for inappropriate comments, and they should know that MacLeod is looking for any reason to call them out and hold them accountable. They should also be sensitive to the fact that even if their comments had no sexist intentions, no politician has faced more sexist remarks and hatred than Premier Kathleen Wynne. Regardless of who wins the upcoming election, Ontario needs change. A good place to set the tone for that is to have a clean, civil and respectful election campaign.

Nothing like a cheeseburger on the lido deck “I’m going to get a couple of chairs for us,” the Diva said to me last week. “Okay,” I replied. “Where exactly are you going to be?” “I am going to try to find a couple on the lido deck before it gets crowded.” I knew exactly what the lido deck was, but after she walked away, I started thinking about it. Have I ever heard the word lido before being on a cruise ship? I don’t think so. Had I ever heard it in my life other than on a cruise ship? Wait a minute. Did that word pop up in that awkward two weeks of sex education in ninth grade phys. ed. class? It sounds like one of those words, but I don’t think it is. The annual March Break cruise has come and gone. We shoe-horned ourselves into the crossover, drove to Baltimore via the Syracuse Destiny USA Mall, and spent a week with the good people from Carnival as we sailed to the Bahamas and back. And ‘the good people at Carnival’ covers everyone from the Scandinavians who built the ship, to the Panamanians who registered it, to the Italians navigating it, to the Filipinos, Indians and Ukranians who formed about 98 per cent of the ship’s staff. ‘Oh, this is going to be great,’ I thought. ‘There will be so much to write about for my column!’ But there wasn’t. I kept waiting for that ‘gotta write about this embarrassing moment,’ but it never happened. Okay, well, one of those moments happened. It involved some half-arsed break dancing moves on top of the bar at Senor Frogs in Freeport after beers and shots at 10 a.m. I couldn’t really write about that because it is hard to describe a fat, 50-something sunburned Canadian white guy with an Expos jersey and hat trying to moon-walk in Birks and then bodypopping to Salt ‘N Peppa’s ‘Push It’. One of the kids caught it on his phone. The Diva shook her head and stared at the floor in shame, then got worried that my big cow heart would explode right there on the stage of the bar. I don’t think they would have cared. They would have just rolled me out of the way and continued the Tequila-drinking contests and Conga line for shots. Besides, what happens in Freeport stays in Freeport. Well, at least it did until the Diva put the video on Facebook. Stupid Zuckerberg and his stupid social media empire. There wasn’t much else to see in Freeport. It was kind of like the industrial park on Conroy Road in Ottawa, except with palm trees and a few souvenir stands. And a few hours later, we were back on the lido deck with a bucket of Corona. I chatted with the cruise director for a few

minutes. He was Australian. I thought he would know the answer so I asked him what “lido” meant. He enlightened me that it was a British term that meant pool deck. It is usually only used on cruise ships. Knowing that, I totally want to work that word into the every day rotation. “Honey, I’m taking the kids to the rec centre to swim. I’m just going to sit with a book on the lido deck.” Lido deck is not the only thing you hear only FROM THE on a cruise ship. Here are some of the other gems we heard. There was one aimed at the cruise director. “What happens if we by Jeff Morris flush the toilet while sitting on it?” “You’ll get a Texassized hickey,” he replied “And on the last cruise a boy was sucked down the toilet and popped up in the hot tub on the lido deck.” “Oh, and is the water in the toilet fresh water or salt water?” He didn’t have an answer to that one, but replied that “there are two reasons I don’t want to know. Number one… and number two.” Here’s another question that was directed at one of the entertainers. “Do you guys stay on the ship, too?” The response was predictable. “No. Actually they have a submarine that comes out into the ocean and goes under the ship to drop us off and take us back to shore every night.” Here’s another. “Kids, hold your breath walking through the casino. All you can smell is a pot pourri of cigarettes, desperation and burnt armpits.” Okay, I didn’t really hear that one. I kind of said it. But hopefully someone else heard it and is using it, because that is exactly what the casino smelled like. And we had to go through there to get to Harry Potter Trivia. Which leads me to the next thing we heard. “Does anyone here have a Harry Potter tattoo?” “I have two,” replied the geek that kicked our butts. It was sad to come home, but your body can only handle so many Guy’s Burger Joint cheeseburgers as a 3 p.m. snack. And I think all 2,100 of us said the same thing when we got home. “Honey, there’s something wrong with the scale in the bathroom. How can I gain 12 pounds when we were only gone seven days?” I think I’ll have a spinach, banana and protein shake for dinner. And maybe an Advil. I may have popped my body while body popping on the stage at Senor Frogs.

WHAT IS THE BBIA & HOW CAN WE HELP YOU? Barrhaven Business Improvement Area (BBIA) — Ottawa’s first suburban BIA created on January 1, 2006. There are more than 130 properties in the BBIA and almost 500 businesses within our boundaries; Highway 416, the south side of Fallowfield Road, the west side of Prince of Wales and the south urban boundary. All commercial properties within the BIA boundary are automatically members of the BIA.




The Barrhaven BIA spearheads a number of initiatives that promote Barrhaven to the advantage of all the properties located within its boundary. Through the BIA, members become more involved and informed about the plans and developments that affect them. These include issues such as property development, policies, policing, by-laws, traffic and transportation. The BIA provides an advocacy role to its members by allowing the area to speak with a united voice on issues of common concern and interest, thereby increasing their influence at City Hall on policies that affect them.

Contract awarded for first phase of police South Campus Master Plan In October 2017, Ottawa Police presented plans for the South Campus Master Plan, which will be located at 55 Lodge Road (off Prince of Wales). This new police station will serve the south end and replace the current locations at Greenbank and Leitrim. Phase 1 is scheduled to be completed in 2021, with phase 2 just a few years later in 2023. Approval of architectural and engineering services were brought to the Ottawa Police Services Board earlier this week. The contract was awarded to Moriyama & Teshima and CS&P Architects for prime consultant services for the design and engineering for phase 1 of the facility.

Ten Year Housing and Homelessness Plan

On March 22nd, the Community and Protective Services Committee received an update on the Ten Year Housing and Homelessness Plan 2014-2024. The City’s Plan was developed to streamline various housing programs, promote people-centred services and human services integration. Recognizing that more needs to be done, especially in addressing rising family homelessness, the City Plan has still had several positive impacts, notably in reducing youth homelessness and building much needed affordable housing units.

Pothole Repairs

The City of Ottawa fills around 250,000 potholes per year. Potholes are caused by the constant freeze-thaw cycle in Winter and Spring. On average, we experience around 68 freezethaw cycles per winter season. Potholes are formed when snow and ice melts and seeps into cracks in the surface of the road, combined with the vibration of traffic over the cracks. Repairs are scheduled and carried out based on the severity of the pothole, traffic impact, and are based on a provincial minimum maintenance standard. Crews clear the pothole of water and debris, fill it with hot asphalt, and compact it to create a tight bond with the surrounding pavement. The City regularly tests new approaches, technology and best practices to find the most effective way to deal with potholes in Ottawa. If you see a pothole, report it online at ottawa. ca or by calling 3-1-1.

GLAD Cleaning the Capital

Early bird registration for the annual GLAD Cleaning the Capital Spring campaign is now open. Participants can register

their cleanup projects by calling 311 or by using the online registration form available at The interactive map on the website shows which locations have been chosen, and allows residents to register their own project. The Cleanup Capital Weekend is scheduled for April 27-29 and the spring campaign will run from April 15 to May 15.

Stoop and Scoop

Dog waste is a public health hazard, takes the pleasure out of outdoor activities and pollutes the environment. Help improve public opinion of dogs and dog owners - make it a habit to pick up after your dog and to take the waste home to dispose of it on your own premises. The City encourages flushing pet waste down the toi-

let, as it will be properly treated at the sewage plant. Dog owners can also place the waste in their regular garbage as long as it is properly wrapped in absorbent paper and placed in a sealed, leak proof bag. Failure to pick up after your dog is a by-law offence. Failure to take it home and dispose of it on your own premises is also an offence under the by-law.

Thank you to everyone who attended the meeting to discuss the new East Barrhaven Community Association. I am very excited to see so much interest in community building in the area.

The Independent#DISCOVERBARRHAVEN Customer service is the key for Barrhaven Sherwin-Williams Paint Store If you ever wondered if the Sherwin-Williams store on Woodroffe Avenue would succeed, it would be fair to say it has. With flying colours. The store, located in the former Royal LePage office in the strip mall at Woodroffe north of Longfields, has become a go-to location for both home decorators and commercial painters. “We have a good mix of customers,” said Barrhaven Sherwin-Williams manager Rebecca Dagenais. “We cater to the home owner looking for that perfect paint for their home, and we also have a number of commercial customers who get their paints and supplies here.” Sherwin-Williams carries a complete line of interior and exterior paints, as well as stains, primers and concrete care products. They also carry a complete line of painting supplies. “We are a one-stop shop for anything to do with painting,” said Dagenais.

Although SherwinWilliams is a household name and a Fortune 500 company in the United States, they are anything but a big box store. They may have enough square footage to satisfy their wide range of paints and related products, but the key to their success has been strong customer service. “It’s more than good customer service,” said Dagenais. “We build relationships with our customers. We get to know them. We get to know what they want and what their tastes are, and that’s why we are able to help them. They would never get that one-on-one attention from a big box store.” The company has been at the forefront of using technology to help its customers. The tools they give their customers to select the right paints and colours are as important as the paints themselves. “We have an app that is really helpful for selecting colours,” said Da-

genais. “And if a customer comes in with a paint chip, our technology will enable us to produce a match.” Sherwin-Williams got its beginnings in 1866, when Henry Sherwin launched his paint business in a small Cleveland storeroom. That was the year that Canadian Sherwin-Williams founder James H. Douglas was born in Omemee, Ontario. At 15, Douglas had embarked on a business career with a retail hardware store in Peterborough, Ontario. The following year found him employed in the Montreal hardware and paint store of James H. Douglas where he first became enamored with the prospects of the paint business. The ensuing romance fostered the development of a Canadian paint enterprise that has become synonymous with quality and leadership. For the sum of twentyfive dollars, Walter Cottingham purchased a formula for Gold Paint

Customer service is the top priority for Rebecca Dagenais and Sara Sargent of Barrhaven Sherwin-Williams.

in 1887 and established manufacturing facilities at 56 St. Peter Street, Montreal. He soon was able to supplement his own meager production through the acquisition of a number of agencies for British paints. Before long, he had gained a reputation as the most important jobber (wholesaler) of good quality paints in Canada. Through the years, Sherwin-Williams has been an innovator in the

industry. “People are surprised when they realize how many innovations Sherwin-Williams is responsible for,” said Dagenais. While Sherwin-Williams focuses on customer service and relationships, it also is involved with a number of community initiatives. “Community is a big part of who we are,” said Dagenais. In three weeks, Sherwin-Williams will be

having a big sale. From April 20-23, the store has 40 per cent off all paints. “We are known for having generous sales, and this is certainly one of them,” said Dagenais. “It’s a great opportunity for people to come in to see everything that we have and how we can help them.” For more information on the Barrhaven Sherwin-Williams paint store, call 613.825.9819.

DINING OUT g n i The art of making friends r u t a e F

Friends and social connections are important

The importance of friends cannot be overstated. Maintaining a healthy group of friends can help relieve stress by enabling a person to have a go-to network of close companions with whom to share the ups and downs of life. The Mayo Clinic says that friends can increase one’s sense of belonging and purpose; help one cope with trauma; encourage change and help one improve his or her self-confidence and self-worth. The medical group also says that people with strong social support systems have a reduced risk of depression, high blood pressure and unhealthy weights. While friends are important, some people find that making new friends — particularly in adulthood — can be

2364 Roger Stevens Drive, North Gower

challenging. That’s because making friends may not be too great a priority compared to caring for families or tending to work responsibilities. Those resolving to broaden their social circles can explore these tips for making new friends. • Start at school. School is often the first place children make friends, but school also can be a great place for adults to meet new people. By attending school functions, you will be thrust into a circle of people similar to you. Parents who get to know their childrens’ friends’ parents may find that they have more in common than just their children. • Join groups. Kids find it easy to make friends due to consistency. They


see the same kids each day at school and through sports teams and clubs. Adults can replicate this consistency by joining groups that spark their interests, finding like-minded people who meet week after week. • Go on a blind “date.” Have a friend set you up with a mutual friend and see if there is a connection there. You may be able to make new friends simply from an introduction. • Take the lead. Pursue a new friendship by taking some initiative. Invite someone out for coffee or over to your home for a glass of wine. Follow up afterward to say you had a good time. • Be positive. Be conscious of what you are adding to a potential friendship. Start off the relationship adding

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

value and joy to the other person’s life, and he or she may be more inclined to do the same. Over time, you can have conversations about rough patches in your lives but wait until the friendship is firmly established to get so serious. There is no magic number of friends a person should have, but individuals should value quality over quantity. Making friends may seem complicated, but it is actually easier than adults may think when they put themselves out there and shows a willingness to build relationships. • Go to an interesting or fun place that will allow everyone to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life, it’s always easier to be yourself when you are relaxed.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY MP says Budget 2018 brings equality and growth to middle class

Over the last two years, the federal government has made big advancements when it comes to its investment in Canadians and the things that matter most to them. The recent release of the 2018-19 federal budget is a plan that promises to put people first, including strengthening the middle-class, promoting equality in all sectors and growing the Canadian economy. I would like to take the opportunity to focus on some of the highlights this year’s federal budget contains.

Focus on women:

The budget wants to promote a Canada where every person has a real and fair chance at success. Over the last 40 years the number of women in the workforce has grown immensely and accounted for roughly one third of Canada’s real GDP per capita growth.

Nepean on the Hill By Chandra Arya Nepean MP

To support more initiatives that build the capacity of equalityseeking organizations, reduce gender inequality in Canada, and promote a fairer and more productive society, the government proposes to provide $100 million over five years to Status of Women Canada to enhance the Women’s program. Gender equality is not just about women and girls, that’s why the government of Canada will provide $1.8 million over the next two years to Status of Women Canada to develop an engagement strategy for men and boys that promotes equality and pilots advanced, targeted approaches to addressing inequality.

Canada will keep promoting women in the trades and is allocating $19.9 million over the next 5 years to pilot an Apprenticeship Incentive Grant for Women.


Canadians are proud of our publicly funded, universal healthcare system—based on need, not ability to pay. Yet, we know that one in ten Canadians cannot afford the prescription drugs they need. Those who can pay for their prescriptions, face some of the highest costs among the world’s most advanced countries. As a part of Budget 2018, the government is announcing the creation of an Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare. The council will report to the federal Minister of Health and the Minister of Finance and will conduct

an economic and social assessment of domestic and international models, and will recommend options on how to move forward on this important topic.

Ottawa Public Library:

The government proposes to provide $73.3 million over six years, on a cash basis, starting in 2018-2019, with $4 million per year ongoing, to support the construction and ongoing operations of a new joint facility that will house Library and Archives Canada and the Ottawa Public Library. It is expected the new building will be completed by 2023. “This is a once-in-ageneration opportunity to join forces and create a landmark institution; one that will serve the needs of residents as a Central Public Library, while offering all Canadians access to

The IndependentCOMMUNITY You Tube videos focus on everything to do with real estate in Barrhaven Barrhaven Invis mortgage broker Jerry Schindelheim was looking for something different to market his business. “I wanted something that would separate us,” Schindelheim said. “I wanted to do something

different.” Schindelheim came up with something that has given him a unique niche. He started interviewing people and created his own series of programs that he has put on You Tube. “The interviews in-

clude everything and anything that has to do with real estate,” Schindelheim said. The episodes each have one guest and they focus on everything to do with your home. There are interviews with realtors, lawyers, builders,

handymen – just about anything to do with your home.” Schindelheim said he is careful not to promote himself in the videos. “I am not doing this to talk about me or my business,” he said. “This is more about helping

people, and about getting exposure for a lot of people in our industry. We will all gain exposure through this, and we can all position ourselves as experts in our field. But our first priority is for the videos to be informative, not self-serving.”

Pee Wee girls hockey brings two worlds together at the Minto Rec Centre oldtimers team. He had also coached many boys in the community. With only skates, sticks and pucks, the coaches taught the girls to skate on a frozen lake. Emma Tworzyanski, a high school student from Markham, heard about the team through her father, who often travelled to northern Ontario to work. As part of her sports management class, she started collecting as much equipment as she could. Before long, Tworzyanski, now a student at Queen’s, was able to gather 45 bags of new and used gear to the team. She then got the help from a trucking company and an airline to get the equipment to Fort Hope. They practised with and against a boys team, and their first ever tournament in Thunder Bay was against boys teams.

This year, the trip to Ottawa provided the girls with more than a hockey experience. Their scrimmage in Barrhaven marked the first time they played against girls. They also visited Parliament Hill, and they got to go to the Edmonton Oilers-

exist as a team is remarkable. The fact that they made it to Ottawa is a miracle. The tournament in Kanata gave them their first ever opportunity to play a game against a girls team. The team was put together by Leslie Campbell, a Grade 1 teacher at John C. Yesno School in Fort Hope. Campbell is a former competitive goalie from Whitby, Ontario. When she arrived at the school, the girls approached her with their dream of having their own hockey team. Last year, the girls had no equipment, no ice time, and most had never worn skates before. Campbell recruited another teacher, and then the two women were joined by Leo Altookan, a 47-year-old known in the village as “Grampa Hockey.” He was a good player and is still active on an

The girls on the team are from the Eabametoong First Nation. Their name, Rez 64, comes from Reservation 64, which the community was once known as.
