Wait Watchers

By Jeff Morris The crowd at Ecole Secondaire Pierre Savard was only about half the size of what was anticipated, but those in attendance were still able to put OC Transpo officials on the hot seat over bus service issues in Barrhaven. The April 25 meeting was a followup to a forum held on OC Transpo service hosted by Councillor Jan Harder in March. Councillors Michael Qaqish and Scott Moffatt were also in attendance. The first meeting was intended to be an information gathering session, without staff from OC Transpo present. At the followup meeting, Colleen Connolly and Troy Charter of OC Transpo gave presentations on improvements to service in Barrhaven, while OC Transpo GM John Manconi was also on hand to answer questions. “This is not going to be the last time you hear from us on this,” Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder said. Barrhaven commuters have been dealing with long wait times and too few buses on their daily commutes to and from downtown Ottawa.

transpo continues from page 1 Throughout the meeting, Harder, who often rides OC Transpo buses, emphasized a spirit of sharing information and working together to improve services. “We are not going to come out of here with a list of problems and have them fixed overnight. It will take time, and we need the help and input of everyone to find solutions.” At Harder’s first meeting on OC Transpo service in the community, close to 100 people turned out and many vented over overcrowding on buses, and long waits to get on buses both out of Barrhaven in the morning and back to Barrhaven at the end of the work day. Moderators presented a list of issues and frustrations to OC Transpo. The transportation service detached a mobile supervisor to the Fallowfield Station Park and Ride, and also had two buses on stand by in case there were long delays.

“We had our people out there trying to find out where the delays are,” Connolly said. She added that OC Transpo tries to respond to customer service calls in a timely manner, and added that OC Transpo riders “are our eyes and ears out there.” While some OC Transpo riders had noted some improvements in services, other saw no change with the problems. Half Moon Bay resident Amanda Bernardo, who first caught Harder’s attention to the problems with her Twitter hashtag #lifeonthe95 and a detailed letter to the editor in the Barrhaven Independent on problems faced by commuters, said that crowded buses “are like sardine cans” downtown when she is trying to get home. Both she and Harder identified the problem to be non-Barrhaven residents getting on Barrhaven-bound buses downtown but then hopping off after a few stops.

The OC Transpo officials also heard that the public transportation problems in Barrhaven extend far beyond just getting to and from downtown Ottawa. Camryn Groulx, a 15-year-old student at Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School, gave examples of some of the problems faced by students and youth with the service. “The bus stops are full of students, and on some days, the buses roll right past us, and they aren’t even full,” she said. She added that the problems of students being passed by are worsened on bad weather days. Groulx also said that travelling within Barrhaven on OC Transpo buses is very difficult. “It’s very difficult to get from one part of Barrhaven to another,” she said. “It makes it difficult for a lot of young people who have part time jobs in the community.” She also noted that getting from

Barrhaven to Bayshore and Kanata, where some Barrhaven youths are finding jobs, is also extremely difficult. Harder called the meeting

productive, and said that more meetings will take place. “We’re going to make sure that we continue this dialogue,” she said.

MacLeod tells supporters she is confident Ford will be next Premier By Charlie Senack With the provincial election less than a month away, Nepean Progressive Conservative candidate Lisa MacLeod is hoping to be elected to represent the community at Queen’s Park for a fifth time. On Sunday May 6, about 400 people joined MacLeod for the official launch of her campaign at the former Jonny Canucks on Woodroffe — now the site of her campaign office. She was joined by Lanark MPP Randy Hillier, former Government Leader of the Senate Marjory LeBreton, and a handful of Progressive Conservative candidates running in different ridings across Ottawa. MacLeod, 43, has been Nepean-Carleton’s MPP for the past 11 years, yet now the riding is being split up into two. MacLeod said she

decided to stay on with Nepean instead of Carleton because it’s where she started her career in politics, and where she raises her daughter Toria, 13, with her husband Joe. “My daughter goes to school at Sir Robert Borden, plays hockey for the Nepean Wildcats, my husband and I both have offices here — me in Barrhaven and him in Bells Corners, so this is a natural progression for me,” MacLeod said on Sunday. “I’m not under any illusion, it’s a tougher seat, but I thought our interests were in this community and I knew also by taking this seat it would free up Carleton for a new candidate that will help our party a lot more and help our chances of forming government.” When MacLeod was asked about what she would like to do for the community, she said she

would like to build on unity. “We’re a high growth community with lots of different people coming from different places,” MacLeod said. “With that growth means I think there is a unifying role I can play along with Councillor (Jan) Harder.” MacLeod started off her political career working as an assistant to Harder, and then moved on to be a riding assistant for MP Pierre Poilievre. Since then, she has continued to work with both of them on issues around Barrhaven, and said she would like to continue working with Harder on making Greenbank Road safer for vehicles. In the past four years, MacLeod has had three pieces of legislation passed in Queens Park including Rowan’s Law on concussion awareness and prevention. Now she is working with Steve and Natalie Cody

on Nick’s Law, a bill that would put Government funding towards opioid education and awareness. “It speaks to my ability to collaborate across the isle regardless of what political stripe you’re in.” MacLeod said on her accomplishments with the private members bills. “Nick’s Law is very important to me. I was very heartened that last time Doug Ford was here, he made a commitment to Nick’s Law and to make sure that we would bring in opioid awareness.” MacLeod said that she is confident Doug Ford will win over the hearts and minds of Ontarians, and that he will become the next Premier of Ontario come June 7. MacLeod said she has already had more than 1,200 requests for lawn signs, with another 300 still to go up.

Light rail expansion to Limebank Road expected to help Barrhaven commuters By Charlie Senack Light Rail Transit won’t be rolling through Barrhaven anytime soon, but an expected expansion of the Trillium Line to Limebank Road will make commuting in and out of Barrhaven a little easier. On Thurs., May 3, Mayor Jim Watson, alongside Liberal Members of Provincial Parliament Bob Chiarelli and John Fraser, announced that the Ontario Provincial Government is putting $50 million toward expanding the Trillium Line of the O-Train out to Limebank Road. As a result, those who live in Riverside South and Barrhaven are expected to have an easier time with public transit. Property developers Urbandale Corporation and Richcraft Homes, two of Riverside South’s bigger property developers, have also stated that they are going to throw an additional $30 million into the pot. That will bring the government funding of the project to $80 million. That money will come from special levies that will come from the sale of homes in the area. “This funding is in addition to the one billion dollars Ontario has already invested in stage two of the LRT project, and adds to the single largest investment any provincial government has made to support Ottawa’s public transit,” said Bob Chiarelli, MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean and the minister of infrastructure. A similar plan was introduced when Chiarelli was Mayor of Ottawa, but it was scrapped in 2006

because the public felt it was “a train to nowhere” as council called it. The plans being scrapped resulted in Chiarelli losing his reelection as Mayor to Larry O’Brien later that year. Mayor Jim Watson says this project was a long time coming. He said it will help serve the residents of Riverside South — an area that currently houses around 16,000 residents, and is growing by around 2,000 a year. “Anyone that travels down to Riverside South and Barrhaven knows the tremendous growth that is taking place there,” said Mayor Watson. “Literally every month I go down I see a new subdivision popping up.” The expansion will begin at the current Greenboro Station, and continue south to Limebank Road. The line will also branch out serving residents in the Uplands area, and will travel to the airport. Watson said that the city is thrilled to be given the funding from the provincial government for the 3.4km extension, and said that trains are expected to be rolling into Riverside South by 2021. “The Trillium Line South extension is one of the three main major extensions to Ottawa’s light rail transit system taking shape under stage two of LRT,” he said. “Its the South End that is going first, then the East End, and then the West End.” Terry Nichols, the president of Urbandale Corporation said this expansion will really help serve the residents of Riverside South, espe-

cially with the population expecting to reach 55,000 within 10 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 percentage of the build out already being completed,” said Nichols. He added that the stop at Limebank will be surrounded by what will soon be the town centre. A library and community centre are soon to be built in the area. It’ goal is also to help reduce emissions, and to keep more cars off of the road. Their hope is that more residents and their families will take the trains around the city instead of using their car. If Premier Kathleen Wynne loses the provincial election in June, there are some concerns that the funding could be scrapped. Doug Ford, Leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party sat down with Watson a few weeks ago, and said he was supportive of the project. Mayor Watson says that in his survey he will be sending out to all the local candidates for the provincial election, he will be askLight rail service in Riverside South will give options for commuting to residents of that community, as well as to residents of Barrhaven, Manotick and the Osgoode Ward.

ing them whether or not they support the second phase of LRT. Although the expansion of light rail transit will not be going out to Barrhaven, it is expected to help shorten Barrhaven residents’

commute in and out of the community. Watson said the line connects bus service to Barrhaven via the Vimy Memorial Bridge. He said more needs to still be done, and the city is work-

ing on that. It is unclear when shovels will be put in the ground. The trip from Limebank to downtown on the Trillium Line is expected to take around 25 minutes.

Ford does the right thing Did Ontario PC leader Doug Ford make the right decision in removing Tanya Granic Allen as a party candidate in the upcoming provincial election? Granic Allen is the 37-year-old president of Parents As First Educators. This group supports parental responsibility in matters related to education and opposes Ontario’s sex education curriculum. Her run for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario was viewed as somewhat quixotic. She defended small government and low taxes, and wisely rejected the implementation of a carbon tax. Her opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage earned her the support of some social conservatives, faith-based party supporters and others. Granic Allen was on the podium during his acceptance speech and became a high-profile PC candidate in the new provincial riding of Mississauga Centre. With the party sitting on top of the polls, her chances of becoming an MPP – and a cabinet minister – looked pretty good. That is, until some of her past remarks began to haunt her. Granic Allen once said she felt like a survivor of an “abortion holocaust,” and “[i]f the Jews were still being killed, there would be a debate in this country.” She had issues with the burka and niqab, stating “I don’t believe people should dress like ninjas.” Last week, the Ontario Liberals unveiled a 2014 video where she said there’s a movement in Croatia to “push radical sexual education on the young or gay marriage – you know I almost vomit in disbelief. I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ How can this be happening? Just 20 years ago we were liberated from this communism and now we are embracing these lack of values, these lack of ideals.” Although Ford had defended her in the past, this recent controversy may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. In a May 5 statement, he announced, “We are a party comprised of people with diverse views that if expressed responsibly, we would respect. However, the fact is her characterization of certain issues and people has been irresponsible.” Ford and the PCs had a difficult decision to make. The party supports free speech and diversity of opinion, and doesn’t like to rein in candidates. But there were simply too many questionable and/or controversial statements to deal with. Defeating Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals must be the primary goal, not consistently putting out political fires related to Granic Allen’s past statements. When a candidate becomes the story for all the wrong reasons and the party and its leader take a backseat, something has to give. That’s what happened here. Hence, Ford made the right decision in removing Granic Allen – because there was no other decision to make. Troy Media columnist and political commentator Michael Taube was a speechwriter for former prime minister Stephen Harper. BARRHAVEN

Former Barrhaven minor hockey coach facing new charges Michael Hull, 49, charged with indecent exposure, criminal harassment and breach of probation By Jeff Morris A Barrhaven resident and former local minor hockey coach has been charged for allegedly exposing himself to minors in Ottawa’s west end. According to a news release from the Ottawa Police, the charges stem from an investigation that began March 14, 2018. The Ottawa police allege that Michael J. Hull 49, exposed himself in places and businesses in Ottawa’s west end where children under the age of 16 were present. Hull appeared in court Fri., April 20 to face charges of an indecent act, criminal harassment, breach of probation, and two counts of indecent exposure to a person under the age of 16. The charges come two years after Hull faced charges for covertly recording women in a New York State Walmart change room. Hull was also one of 80 people who also faced child pornography charges in April, 2016, following a province-wide OPP investigation. The news release also stated that the Ottawa Police Service Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Section investigators are concerned that there could be other victims. In September of last year, Hull was sentenced in Ogdensburg, NY on charges from a February, 2016 incident, where he attempted to film females without their knowledge in the change room at the Ogdensburg Walmart. The videos were discovered after Hull turned his iPhone over to a border agent at the Prescott-Ogdensburg International Bridge. The first video was approximately two minutes long and showed what officials described as an “older Caucasian woman in her underwear” as she was being video recorded from under the changing room stall. At the end of the video, Hull then allegedly turns the iPhone camera on himself for a video selfie. He then allegedly repeated the same voyeuristic videos and selfies with two different women in the changing booth, according to Canadian officials. The Ontario Provincial Police detachment in Prescott was contacted, and the OPP in turn contacted the Ogdensburg Police De-

partment Criminal Investigations Unit. Detective David Layng of the Ogdensburg Police Department said that during the unlawful surveillance investigation, Hull was found to have also been in possession of pornographic images of a child under the age of 16 while he was in Ogdensburg. On Sept. 19, 2017, Hull pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of attempted unlawful surveillance second degree, a level “A” misdemeanor. The other two charges were also reduced to “attempted” misdemeanor charges. Hull was arraigned in Ogdensburg Court and was released on $1,000 cash bail. At his sentencing in October, Hull was given a one-year conditional discharge and ordered to pay $50 to provide authorities a sample of his DNA, as well as a $1,000 US fine, a $175 surcharge and a $25 victim assistance fee. Because the charges were in the US, they did not stop Hull from coaching minor hockey in Canada. In the spring of 2016, Hull was coaching the Myers Snipers 2005 Triple-A spring hockey team when he was one of 80 people arrested across the province on child pornography charges. Hull was not the only minor hockey coach charged in the provincial wave of arrests. Hull appeared in Brockville court in 2017 and was fined $3,000 and sentenced to three years probation. As part of his probation, Hull must “keep the peace and be of good behaviour”. He is not allowed to be in the presence of

any children under the age of 14 – excluding his own children – unless that child is accompanied by an adult. In November, Hull was suspended by the Discipline Committee of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario. Raises concerns While Hull’s probation and police record would prevent him from coaching or volunteering in a sanctioned minor hockey association, they would not entirely prevent him from being involved in coaching the sport. Spring hockey is not sanctioned, and many players’ parents hire coaches for private lessons. The Barrhaven Independent received a tip from a Myers Snipers 2005 parent last year that Hull was seen coaching as an instructor at the Bell Sensplex. As long as Hull was following the rules of his probation, there was nothing

preventing him from coaching privately. Representatives from the Bell Sensplex did not return phone calls to discuss the situation, though after a visit to the complex, the Independent learned that Hull was not involved in any Sensplex programs. Programs operated by the Sensplex have certified coaches that have police check clearance. However, individuals can rent the ice at the facility to run their own private lessons. They require insurance, but not police youth vulnerable sector checks. Gregg Kennedy, who coaches in the Ontario East Triple-A Hockey League and has been a head coach in the Central Canada Hockey League, says that unsanctioned spring hockey “is like the wild west of hockey” due to the lack of structure. “The most important thing to know is that Michael Hull would not get anywhere near a minor hockey team, other than being a parent in the stands, when it comes to sanctioned minor hockey programs that operate in the fall and winter,” he said. “Every coach and volunteer has to have a police check to be able to work with the vulnerable sector.” Kennedy, who hosts a radio program on local minor hockey issues during the season on TSN1200, said that when you get outside of sanctioned hockey teams and organizations, the regulations are sometimes nonexistent. “There are some outstanding people and coaches working

with Triple-A teams for spring hockey tournaments, and I have even been involved with some of them,” he said. “But the problem is that anyone can put a team together to travel to Toronto for a tournament. A lot of times, it’s a matter of getting some players, having their families kick in a few hundred bucks for some practice ice time, a set of jerseys and a couple of tournament registration fees, and that is all you need.” Because of the barnstorming nature of spring tournament hockey, Kennedy said many clubs do not bother with police checks. He said that because of the regulations in place for sanctioned minor hockey clubs, some parents might mistakenly assume that the same regulations are in place. “The most important thing a parent can do when you are putting a kid in a program like that, or in private lessons with someone, is just do some homework,” he said. “Start with a Google search and see if anything comes up. Ask some questions to other people. And it’s not just hockey. I would encourage parents to do that if their kids are doing piano lessons, scouts, or anything where you are trusting someone with your children for an hour or two at a time.” Kennedy said the situation involving Hull in 2016 did not put a black mark on minor hockey. “It was the opposite,” said Kennedy. “It was good for sanctioned minor hockey, because we know that with the regulations in place, something like this would never happen.”

The Independent#MyBarrhaven Barrhaven clinic protects local travellers before a trip or vacation ory committee on travel and tropical medicine, known as CATMAT. In a nutshell, their job is to protect you when you go off to a different land. It is the place for an immunization, especially if you don’t like needles. They have the technique and recommend vaccines only when the need is clear. All vaccines are in stock at the clinic. Some travel itineraries include malarious areas. There is no malaria vaccine available but anti-mosquito measures and medication can prevent this disease. They will discuss options with you. The clinic will also help you avoid illness. They discuss food and water precautions, travellers’ diarrhea and its treatment, dengue and Chikungunya fever, Zika

Everyone loves to plan a trip. Sometimes they are a southern vacation to Florida or the Caribbean in the winter. Maybe the trip is a cruise or at an all-inclusive resort. Or maybe your dream destination is a far off land that is a once-in-alifetime opportunity. One stop that is important to make before heading out of Barrhaven and onto that airplane is Barrhaven Travel Medicine Clinic. The clinic, located in the Loblaws in the RioCan Marketplace at Greenbank and Strandherd, is a branch of the Riverside Travel Medicine Clinic, established in 1990. Staff are members of the International Society of Travel Medicine. Several of them have served on Health Canada’s expert advis-

virus, animal bites, altitude sickness and more depending on your itinerary. You will be looked after at the Barrhaven Travel Medicine Clinic by staff from the Riverside clinic, most often by Veronica Ha, nurse practitioner and Peter Teitelbaum, physician. Veronica Ha received her nursing degree and nurse practitioner degree at the University of Ottawa. She also practices travel medicine at the U of O travel clinic. At various times the clinic may be staffed by Hasana Birk, RN, Robert Birnbaum, MD. Jackie Levere, RN and Elizabeth Meyer, RPN. Peter Teitelbaum is the founding director of both clinics. He is a member of CATMAT, the advisory committee of the Public Health

Moss Dickinson Moss Dickinson was born in Denmark, Lewis Co. New York to Barnabus and Lydia Dickinson on June 1st 1822. His parents were descendants of the Pilgrim Fathers who landed in New England aboard the Mayflower. By 1827 the Dickinsons had moved to Cornwall, Ontario where Barnabus started a stage coach service carrying mail and passengers between Montreal and Kingston. For Moss’ tenth birthday his father took him to Kingston to see the opening of the Rideau Canal. He later married Elizabeth Trigge. By 1847 Moss had purchased a number of ships and barges to transport livestock, grain, logs, cheese, and passengers between

Ottawa and Kingston, servicing all the tiny villages that had sprung up along the route. In 1850 Dickinson’s fleet numbered 16 steamers and 60 barges. In late 1859 and early 1860, Dickinson and his partner Joseph Currier built the Mill in Manotick. The following year Moss’ wife Elizabeth died five months after the birth of daughter Elizabeth. From 1864 to 1866 Dickinson was the Mayor of Ottawa. In 1867 Dickinson built the fine old home, directly across from the Mill in Manotick. The building served as general store and the first post office in the new town, then in 1870 he moved his family into it to be closer to the milling business.

The year 1882 was a busy one in the Dickinson household. The Dickinson house was the campaign headquarters for the election of Sir John A. MacDonald. Moss was elected to represent the riding of Russel. Dickinson House The Dickinson house was again the headquarters for the election in 1887. Moss did not run in this election. By 1896 Moss’ health was failing and he was rarely seen around the Mill. His son George took over the Mill operations. On July 19th , 1897, Moss Kent Dickinson died in the house he had built in the town he had named. He is buried in Ottawa’s Beechwood Cemetery beside his wife Elizabeth.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Sapling from a Vimy Ridge acorn planted at Claudette Cain Park By Independent Staff

A piece of history from the Battle of Vimy Ridge has been planted at Claudette Cain Park in Riverside South. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion Barrhaven and South Carleton branches were on hand as an oak sapling was planted at Claudette Cain Park Monday morning. The sapling descends from an acorn of an oak tree picked up at the site of the Battle of Vimy Ridge more than 100 years ago. “This bridge was named

Vimy Bridge to honour and remember the sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers,” said former city councillor and deputy mayor Steve Desroches. “There is great symbolism having those trees here.” Also on hand at the ceremony were Councillors Jan Harder, Scott Moffatt, Michael Qaqish and George Darouze. NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod was also on hand, and got emotional in saying that it was her last official event representing the riding. “I was there to help re-

build the Legion in Manotick when it burned down, and I was there for the opening of the Barrhaven Legion,” said a teary-eyed MacLeod. She will be running for the Progressive Conservative Party in the newly created Nepean riding next month. Allan Haan of the Manotick Legion said that members of both Legion beaches were excited to see the sapling dedicated. “It’s a perfect and fitting piece of history,” Haan said. He described how an oak forest was destroyed

at the Battle of Vimy Ridge in France, and how a Canadian soldier grabbed acorns after the battle and brought them back to Canada.

“Those acorns were planted in southern Ontario, and the sapling are from acorns of those trees,” he said. A sapling from a Vimy

Oak was also planted in Barrhaven. “Eventually there will be plaques there to commemorate the Vimy oaks,” he said.

Bachelor and bachelorette ideas!

Affordable bachelor and bachelorette party ideas Weddings can be expensive. Various sources estimate the average cost of weddings is anywhere from $26,000 to $31,000. Couples and their parents may bear the brunt of wedding expenses, but those who have accepted a role in the wedding party also can expect their share of expenses. Taking into account gifts, wardrobes, makeup, bridal showers, and travel, including getting to and from the bachelor/ bachelorette party, bridal party members are on the hook for a lot of money when their friends or family members tie the knot. Many men and women like to travel for their bachelor/bachelorette parties, and costconscious bridal party members may be

2364 Roger Stevens Drive, North Gower

concerned about how expensive such parties can be. Pulling out all the stops can be exciting, but there’s no guarantee these types of parties will be more enjoyable than simpler soirées. Taking steps to control costs can help cost-conscious couples and their friends. The following are some affordable ideas that can be fun for all involved. · Local Bar, pub or tavern crawl: Partygoers typically want to enjoy a night out on the town, and traveling from one establishment to another can be a fun way to do just that. Everyone invited can set themselves apart with a signature item (hat, T-shirt, or colored clothing), and make the rounds.

613-489-2278

· Attend a group event: Group events include sporting events, concerts, theater shows, or a night at a comedy club. Investigate discounted tickets for large groups. · Belt out the tunes: Open mic nights at restaurants, bars and other establishments around town may make for a fun way for friends to share a few laughs together. Participants need not be professional singers to join in on the festivities. · Dinner party: Hire a caterer to visit your house and prepare a meal for guests. Serve a signature cocktail and let the conversation flow. Bachelor and bachelorette parties can be affordable without sacrificing fun.

Well it’s here, Sprummer that is. What’s Sprummer? Spring and summer at the same time. I say that because we went from minus #’s to high single digits to 28 degrees Celsius last week. Even the buds on the trees were shocked at the change. I must say however, it’s great to see that greenish tinge creating a Barrhaven canopy. I can’t wait for a long run of good growing weather, good bbq weather, good anything weather! Soon our sports fields will all be open and Barrhaven will be busier than ever. With good weather comes lots more pedestrians strolling and running and cyclists finding opportunities to get out and move. I am particularly happy that this year the Woodroffe Multi-Use Pathway will be completed from Longfields to Stoneway at Farm Boy... yay! I have been asking for that for many years. If you know the grade of the seats in both Walter Baker Rinks A&B, you will be happy to know I have worked with Dave Connolly at the Baker to order handrails to improve the safety of climbing into the stands. The stairs are very steep. Did you see the picture of the new paint in both rinks? Staff have put a fresh coat of paint on to the walls and boards in red and yellow, which were the original WBC colours way back when! Schools are organizing year-end parties. I am here to help if I can. Let my office know.

Young players taught to keep their heads out of the game everyone.” The safe contact concept was developed in the United States after President Barrack Obama called for action to make youth football safer in lieu of the number of concussions suffered by young players in the sport. Football Canada followed suit and worked closely with its American counterparts to develop the program. “Football is a great game that offers so much to young people in so many ways,” said Hamm. “But in order for the game to grow and attract player who want to play, changes had to be made.” Dean said that one of the positives that have come out of Safe Contact training is that the comfort level for parents has been addressed. “There has been a lot in the news about concussions in youth sports over the last few years,” said Dean, who added that

As the Nepean Eagles are accepting registration online for their tryout camp later this month, they are one of many clubs in the city promoting the increased safety measures that have been added to football. The game is changing, and it’s changing for the better. “It’s all about keeping the kids safe and preventing injuries,” said Nepean Eagles and National Capital Amateur Football Association President Steve Dean. NCAFA is the largest youth football program in Canada, stretching from Cornwall to Brockville to West Carleton to Cumberland to Gatineau. Youth and amateur football – from the mites and tykes up through the college programs and even the professionals – are being taught a differ-

ent and much safer way to play the game. The emphasis is on directing contact away from the head for tacklers, ball carriers, blockers and defenders. Youth football coaches are being certified through Football Canada’s Safe Contact program. Coaches have received training in a new way to teach new and safer techniques. Practices are also structured much different, with emphasis on positioning and technique with much less contact than what had been the case for generations. “We have basically taken ‘old school’ out of the game,” said Rob Hamm, who certifies local coaches for the Football Canada Safe Contact program. “It’s no longer a game of sticking your head in there. It’s about safety and preventing injuries so that football can be a more enjoyable and positive experience for

The body is position to have a lower centre of gravity and a chest-out position, which takes the head out of the contact points. Follow through is made up and through the ball carrier, with contact away from the head. “We were all taught to lower your head and wrap up the player you are tackling,” said Hamm. “But we don’t teach that any more. Wrapping around the ball carry naturally lowers the head of the tackler, making him or her vulnerable.” Hamm, said that one of the challenges the coach-

es are facing is coming from parents on the sideline who were taught the game differently. Most of the parents, however, have embraced the new techniques once they understand what is being taught and how safety of the players is elevated. “There are people who think this is stupid, just as there were people who thought the forward pass was stupid,” longtime NCAFA coach Rich Szydlow said. “But it’s only because it’s something new that they are not used to. I’ll be honest, I was skep-

Did you know that there are significant risks in ignoring hearing loss? If not, you are not alone. Consequently, May has been nationally devoted to Hearing Health Awareness. The most common hearing loss is a result of damaged hearing cells. This generally leads to a greater difficulty hearing high frequencies in comparison to low frequencies. When one does not hear all pitches equally, speech becomes unclear, not unheard. Consequently, understanding others is not impossible, but takes more effort and attention, especially when the voice is competing with background noise. Because hearing loss is generally experienced as a progressive decline in speech intelligibility rather than an overnight onset, it can take years for someone to pursue help for their hearing difficulties but there is compelling evidence for acting sooner rather than later. Over the last decade an abundance of research has been undertaken in the Hearing Health arena. Studies repeatedly reveal how important Hearing Health is to your overall health. Untreated hearing loss has been linked to depression, anxiety, cognitive decline, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, decreased speech processing abilities, increased risk of falls as well as a variety of relationship problems. It has even been linked to work related issues such as reduced earnings, increased workplace absenteeism and

tical when I first learned the program, but we are seeing, especially with the young kids.” Szydlow called the changes to football “the biggest the game has seen since Teddy Roosevelt stepped in and made changes for the safety of the players.” While the coaches and players have been learning the new game, officials from the Eastern Ontario Tackle Football Officials Association and its governing body in the province, the Ontario Football Officials Association, are

lower productivity. Indeed, untreated or improperly treated hearing loss has a significant impact on your quality of life. The good news is that studies also show that using hearing aids not only improves hearing but also preserves the brain, leading to improvements in emotional and cognitive conditions. And, with today’s technology advancements, there are more solutions available then ever! Impressive advancements include titanium shells, rechargeable batteries, wireless capabilities, noise reduction features and speech finding abilities. These improvements have led to record-high client satisfaction ratings and the expectation is that hearing aid capabilities will only continue to improve. Hearing is surprisingly complex and so are hearing aids. To be successful in overcoming your difficulties, the assessments have to be thorough, the selection of products unlimited and the flexibility maximized. Consequently, finding an Audiologist in an independent clinic is ideal. Offering just that is Hearing Freedom, a locally owned, grown, and operated clinic. Their grassroots approach is unfortunately 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 over 15 years ago. As a newly

putting more emphasis on creating a safer environment for the players. “The rules have always been in place, but in the past, they were called something else,” said OFOA President Murray Taylor at a conference in Kingston. Taylor gave a presentation to officials from throughout the province that will lead to a crackdown on contact directed to the head, or initiated by the head. New definitions of face masking and horse collar tackling, both unnecessary roughness penalties, have

been put in place to further protect players. Hamm, meanwhile, reflects on his days as a player at South Carleton and then at McMaster, and to his early days of coaching 30 years ago. “It makes you think about how we were taught football and the drills we did, and then the drills we used to make the kids do when we started out as coaches,” Hamm said. “Drills back then were about lining up and hitting your opponent at full speed to see who was tough. That’s the way the

graduated Audiologist, Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology, had many interviews with local hearing companies. At each establishment she was disappointed to find the same thing; the interviews had nothing to do with her knowledge and skills, they rather 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 came into this profession to improve my patients’ quality of life. I wanted to focus on my patients’ needs, not sales. I wanted to be able to consider everything available to them in the market, not just the product lines that provided my employer the big gest profit margins. I wanted to be driven by satisfied customers and by the smiles on their and their loved one’s faces.” And so she decided to set up her own business, doing it her way and putting patients first. At Hearing Freedom, the patient is an active part of the decision-making process and 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. Throughout, the patient’s opinions and concerns are held paramount. “We devote all the time necessary to ensure our patients’ hear-

game was for years. Now, that’s not acceptable.” Dean, meanwhile, is happy to see the issue of protecting players at the forefront. “We are getting a lot of different people from different sides on the same page with the same objectives,” said Dean. “Player safety will always be the main priority. We want football to be fun for the players, and keeping them safer is an important part in making it fun, and making it a positive experience for the families involved with our clubs.”

ing 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 solution 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 the bilingual Audiologists and owner, Rosanne McNamee. With her 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). “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. You will not regret your short drive to Manotick.
