The IndependentNEWS Commercial vehicle safety blitz

On Thursday, April 25th, the Ottawa Police Traffic Unit, along with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation officers conducted a Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Blitz in the south end of Ottawa where 34 inspections were conducted. Eleven of those vehicles were taken “out of service” for improper tires, leaking brakes, or cargo security issues, to name a few. These vehicles were not able to continue until the repairs were made or issues rectified. Two vehicles

had their license plates removed. A total of 31 charges were laid, including insecure load, improper tires, improper driver’s license, and speeding. “Drivers of commercial motor vehicles are required, by law, to complete daily inspection reports to ensure their vehicles are in proper working condition and free of any defects BEFORE hitting the road.” states Cst. Phil Kane. “We are seeing many drivers who fail to take the time to conduct an inspection or are sim-

ply unaware that one is required. This is concerning.” “Vehicle safety and proper driver behavior will help keep our roads safe for all road users,” continues Cst. Kane. Staff Sergeant MarcAndre Sheehy adds “We hear and see traffic complaints from residents and road safety continues to be a top priority for us.” Residents can submit traffic complaints at ottawapolice.ca. The data collected assists in establishing trends and patterns and allocating resources.

The IndependentNEWS Mattamy, Stonebridge Working Group looking for common ground By Charlie Senack

For the third time in months, concerned residents from Stonebridge gathered at the Nepean Sportsplex on April 17, to talk about potential development on the golf course. Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt was in attendance at the meeting, as well as Gloucester-South Nepean Councillor Carol Anne Meehan. The golf course is owned by Mattamy Homes, who in June 2018, brought a development application forward to build 158 single detached homes and townhomes on part of the property — meaning an 18-hole redevelopment would have to be done. After much backlash from residents who paid tens of thousands of dollars in premiums to live on the course arose, they decided to pull their application. But meetings are now taking place again as Mattamy wants to re-explore the idea, but this time they are looking for community involvement. In an effort to get the community involved, the Stonebridge Working Group has been created. One hundred and twenty-five residents signed up to take part, but only 11 residents were chosen — including some members from the Stonebridge Community Association. Steve Willis, General Manager, Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development with the City of Ottawa, says this process is not mandatory, but says it’s being done to help find a common ground that both the residents and the developers will be satisfied with.

Residents from Stonebridge attended a meeting at the Nepean Sportsplex April 17. “What I’ve learned from experience is the sooner you can talk to (Mattamy Homes) and help them shape their plans, the more likely you will get what you want to see as an outcome in this process,” Willis said to the packed room of a few hundred residents. But negotiating is not what Stonebridge residents want to do. They say they bought onto the course with a vision in mind, and say they aren’t looking to have it changed. “As far as we are concerned, the land has been developed; end of story,” said one resident. “That’s why we


live where we live is because we bought into the vision of how this land should be developed. We don’t want a change and we are absolutely against this whole proposal.” The questions during the two hour-long meeting were directed to Jack Stirling who has been called in as talks with Mattamy take a different direction. Stirling was part of developing Barrhaven into what it is today, and served as head of Planning and Development for the City of Nepean for five years before amalgamation in 2001. This has been a file that

Stirling has been interested in even before he was called in to help. He said he attended the two previous meetings, and saw the frustrations that the residents were facing. In response to the woman’s comments about development on the course, Stirling said the community was designed and planned around the golf course, and says it plays an “important” role in the community. “One of the things I firmly believe in and have for my entire career in both the public and private sector, is the belief in communities,” Stirling said in response to the

Municipal Board. Councillors are still trying to find their way around this new system, and are trying to figure out how much control they have. The golf course is split between the wards of Gloucester-South Nepean, Barrhaven and Rideau-Goulbourn. Ward 22 councillor Carol Anne Meehan has had the strongest stance on the file since discussions first started taking place, and says she is firmly against any development on the course. It is expected that more meetings will be scheduled in the future.

persons question. Mattamy has made it clear that they are looking to file another application with the City of Ottawa, but have decided to wait as they try to create a new plan with the residents input.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Despite rave reviews, Ka Familia forced to shut down in Barrhaven By Charlie Senack

The Ka Familia Restaurant has been a proud champion in the Barrhaven community since first opening in early 2017, but on April 27, they were forced to close their doors for good. It was March 2017 when Dhom Rosete took possession of the restaurant located on Strandherd Drive. He knew it was a big undertaking, but was up for the challenge given his experience with cooking and his ability to deal with customers. During the two years they were open he predicts around 20,000 spring rolls were served, alongside hundreds — if not thousands of pork and chicken dishes. The restaurant was also always there to give back to the community, and in December 2018 organized a free Christ-

mas dinner buffet for those living alone, the elderly and homeless — and anyone who would not otherwise have a place to go for a good Christmas meal. “I have invested not only financially, but also mentally, physically and emotionally,” Rosete said about the restaurants two-year run in a post to Facebook on April

16. “I also learned more about patience, perseverance and about being resilient,” he added. “I was committed to my community (especially Barrhaven), and I will continue to do so, and support small and family businesses here in Ottawa.” Rosete didn’t go into details as to why the restaurant

was closing, but said anyone who had any outstanding gift certificates would be refunded their money if it was

not used in time. He isn’t ruling out the idea of opening another restaurant in the future, but said

he would look at other areas of the city like Westboro and downtown, and said it would be on a smaller scale.

Jockvale Elementary encouraging healthy eating in the classroom When Jockvale Elementary School had to create 13 Christmas food hampers in December 2017, the school’s parent council realized they had to do something to support the less fortunate families in the school community. In the fall of 2018, they formed a committee and decided to bring fruit bowls into the classrooms. It may sound like a simple thing to do, but the impacts have been nothing but positive. “There has been a significant decline in behaviour issues,” said

Crystal Logan, chair of the parent council at Jockvale. “It was something that was hoped for, but we were all surprised on how soon it happened.” Crystal whose son is in grade one, said the program started the first week of January, and says the school can go through 80 to 100 lbs of fruit per week. They purchase about half of the food themselves, with the other half coming from local businesses around Barrhaven. “Loblaws and Independent provide us with a weekly donation

of food,” said Crystal. “Loblaws provide fruit, yogurt and cheese and Independent provides more fruit.” That’s on top of gift cards that come from other local businesses including Sobeys, Foods Basics and Costco. The fruit baskets are filled every Monday, but Crystal says some classrooms are looking for refills every day whereas others are only once or

twice a week. To support their ongoing initiatives, Jockvale will be holding a trivia night at the Heart and Crown starting at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, May 14th. Tickets are $15.00 each, and anyone is welcome to come with a team. This is the second trivia night the school is hosting. At their previous one around $1400 was raised, without

about $700 of that going back into the fruit program. Jockvale Elementary is not the only school in Barrhaven to start a healthy eating program. Half Moon Bay Public School has followed suit, rolling out over a dozen bowls filled with fresh fruit in their classrooms. But that’s not the only thing going on in the classroom this week.

Grade 4 and 5 students took to the halls of the school, working together to learn about pulleys and gears through a hands-on approach to science. Peter Tilley from the Ottawa Mission also paid the students a visit, where he took questions from students and talked about ways members of society can help the homeless population in our community.

How far back is back in the day?


Into the frying pan

I remember the first time I ate at Ka Familia. Looking back, it was a delicious lunch that, looking back, was drizzled in irony. It was a lunch meeting hosted by the Barrhaven BIA. The topic of the meeting was identifying and addressing the problems facing the businesses of Barrhaven. I had spring rolls and a stir fry. It was absolutely outstanding. The problems facing Barrhaven businesses are not hard to pinpoint. The problem facing the business community in any suburb is trying to get the residents to shop locally. They leave the community to head downtown to work. But the business community needs these people to come home to spend their money rather than shop downtown and bring their goods home. As Barrhaven’s retail sector is growing, and as more jobs are being created in the community, local businesses are doing better on this front than they were a decade ago. But the real problem – this is where the irony of the lunch at Ka Familia comes into play – is the cost per square foot that independent businesses are paying to landlords. Ka Familia, the very place where the discussion was held, is the latest business to be felled by that sword. Ka Familia closed its doors at the end of April. It wasn’t because the restaurant was not good. It was outstanding. Dhom Rosete, a five-star chef, once cooked for Queen Elizabeth II while he worked in England, where he was trained as a chef. His menu was great. The food was exceptional. But, when it comes right down to it, when your rent is in the $10,000 per month range, there is just no way that can work. In fact, Ka Familia is the third outstanding restaurant that failed because it could not handle the high rent. Fiama suffered the same fate. So did Casa de Gustos. Aside from Porto a Casa, these may be the best restaurants Barrhaven has ever had. This fate is not exclusive to high end restaurants. Do you remember the barbecue place we had for a little while on Woodroffe? It was outstanding. And Top Your Pie, in the same plaza, offered some of the best Lebanese pies and shawarmas in the city. But with their high rental fees, they couldn’t make it work. After Ka Familia moves out and their signs come down, there will most likely be another restauranteur or business who will roll the dice on what should be one of the best locations in Barrhaven, even though outstanding restaurants are oh-for-three there. But why should landlords and leasing companies in the community lower prices when people are lined up to pay Westboro-type square footage fees? JM BARRHAVEN

It’s not often that you hear a conversation anymore. People don’t seem to chat. They sit there on their phones, reading texts or checking Facebook or Instagram posts. Communicating verbally just seems so pre-Zuckerbergian or even pre-Gatesian. I was in a waiting room last week, and I was surprised to actually hear a conversation between two Millennials. They were talking about their phones, and one of them made a comment that kind of got me fired up. “It’s not like back in the day, when we only had an iPhone 3,” one them said. What? They didn’t have iPhone 3 back in the day. They are too young to even know what back in the day is, because back in the day, they weren’t even born. And back in the day, phones were rotary phones. I doubt if these two had ever even seen a phone that you actually dialed with your finger. I didn’t say anything. But I wanted to. But I didn’t. Hmmmph. Back in the day. Who do these pups think they are to use a term that is so sacred to all of us who are well into adulthood? Technically, I guess they are adults. They would probably get served at the Beer Store, but they would definitely be ID’d. I wonder if they even go to the Beer Store, or if they call some sort of Uber Drinks service. Back in the day, they didn’t have booze delivery services. You went to the Beer Store and you had a choice of Molson Canadian, Molson Golden, Molson Ex, Labatt’s Blue, Labatt’s 50, OV, O’Keefe or Carlsberg. That was the fancy import beer. Back in the day, they didn’t have craft beer and gluten free ciders with hints of apple or lime-flavoured beer. And back in the day, they didn’t have tallboy cans and twist off bottles. Back in the day, we drank out of stubbies. And every now and then we would be in a situation where we couldn’t find an opener, and somebody would have to MacGyver your beer open with a seatbelt buckle or the corner of a table or even their teeth. And back in the day, Richard Dean Anderson was MacGyver, not Lucas Till. And Jay Hernandez wasn’t Magnum, Tom Selleck was. And I’m sure that as they played their video games on their phones while chatting – this is only because they didn’t have an X-Box in the waiting room we were in – their version of back in the day probably meant playing Call of Duty Black Ops or Red Dead Redemption.

That’s not back in the day. I don’t even think it was back in the day when we had a Nintendo 64 and we played Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt. Back in the day was Donkey Kong and Pac-Man and Asteroids and Blades of Steel. And if you really want to go back in the day, it was the Coleco Pong game, where you had the option of one paddle for tennis or two paddles FROM THE for hockey. And when we went to the arcade, we played pinball games and we played pool. And back in the day, we didn’t sit on our butts and play NHL video by Jeff Morris games. We went outside and played road hockey. And we would take an old stick and saw off the broken blade and we would stand over the stove and melt a plastic Cooper street hockey blade onto the shaft. And we didn’t have composite sticks back in the day. We had actual wooden sticks. There were always a dozen or so Sherwood 5030 sticks of various lengths with various tape jobs leaned against the corner in the garage. Back in the day, we didn’t have Netflix. We didn’t stream things or binge watch. We waited for Thursday night and we all watched Friends and Cheers and Seinfeld. In fact, that is barely old enough to be back in the day. Because back in the day, we would stop what we were doing to watch the Fonz and Richie Cunningham on Happy Days, or Hawkeye and Trapper John on Mash, or we would even spend a year wondering who shot JR, only to find out it was just a dream and that we had wasted a year of our lives. And back in the day, we didn’t listen to the remedial, auto-toned drivel from “artists” like Juice Wrld and Drake and Cardi B and 6ix9ine, who is in prison right now. We actually had music back in the day, with real music and real singers. And back in the day, we didn’t download music. We didn’t even have CDs yet. We bought records and cassettes. And we joined the Columbia Record Club, where you got 10 records or cassettes for only one cent as long as you agreed to buy six or more records or cassettes at regular club prices over the next three years. And even further back in the day, we had eight track tapes. Our bus driver had an eight track player. Kiss Destroyer was a staple on the way to elementary school. I guess everyone has their own back in the day memories. At that point, I put on my headphones to listen to something from back in the day. How about some Journey? Don’t Stop Believin’. That’s timeless, for any day.

Freshii gives Barrhaven a fresh and exciting food option

For generations of Canadians, fast food did not necessarily mean fresh food. Fast food was almost always a burger and fries and maybe a soft drink or a shake. Freshii, which opened in Barrhaven earlier this year, is proof that fast food can be both fresh and healthy. Freshii is a fast casual restaurant located on 4235 Strandherd Drive near Costco, near East Side Mario’s. Freshii serves breakfast options as well as lunch and dinner food and snacks, with burritos, wraps, soups, salads, and frozen yogurt on the menu. It was founded in Toronto in 2005 by CEO Matthew Corrin, and has since expanded to over 300 locations in countries including Canada, the United States, Colombia, Peru, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, and United Arab Emirates, with franchises under development in Germany, Guatemala, and Saudi Arabia. Corrin was working for fashion icon Oscar de la Renta when he was inspired by delicatessens in New York that offered fresh food. He opened his first restaurant, which was then called the Lettuce Eatery, in Toronto in 2005. The store opened to large lineups and

ran out of food on its first day of operation. The store would later rebrand itself as Freshii, and it has seen steady growth over the last five years. Freshii features seven different menu categories, as well as breakfast. Salads include Buffalo Salada, which is a healthier twist on a classic buffalo chicken wrap. (That was our Barrhaven Independent staff favourite!) Other salads include the Fiesta, a tangy southwest salad; the Metaboost, the Cobb. Whjich is perfect for people following a keto diet; the Market, the Umamii, which is an Asianinspired medley; Kale Caesar, and you can also create your own custom salad. Each of the salads is also available in a wrap. The bowls available are the Mediterranean, Buddha’s Satay, which includes a spicey peanut sauce; the Oaxaca, which is a Mexicaninspired blow with a spicy yogurt dressing; the Teriyaki Twist, the Pangoa, which has bbq and avocado; and the Thai-inspired Bamboo. There are four different burritos on the menu, along with the option of creating a custom burrito. The Khao Sun has a flavour mix of peanut and lemon grass. The Baja includes a blend of slasa fresca, corn and avocado; the Smokehouse is a southern basic; and the Tex Mex includes corn and black bean. Soups available include Superfood, Spicy lemongrass and tortilla, as well as custom soup. There is also a full line-

There is also a full selection of smoothies and juices. For breakfast, Freshii offers ranchero burritos and steak and cheese burritos, as

well as bacon and egg cheese pockets and mushroom and cheese pockets. The restaurant also caters to many dietary preferences, with gluten- free, dairy- free, vegetarian and vegan options available upon request. The menu also rolls over with seasonal and promotional

items every few months, as they stay on top of the latest healthy-eating and taste trends. Freshii is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Barrhaven Business Profile is brought to you by the Barrhaven BIA. We encourage you to shop locally

Surprise Mom with a special dessert in her honor Mothers selflessly devote themselves to their children from infancy into adulthood. A mother’s love never wanes, and she’s always ready and willing to step in and put her children first. Mother’s Day is a great chance for men, women and children to honor the special women in their lives. Delicious homemade treats can show mothers just how much they’re appreciated and adored. Try this tasty recipe for “Cold Mango Soufflés Topped with Toasted Coconut” from “The Complete Mexican, South American & Caribbean Cookbook” (Metro Books) by Jane Milton, Jenni Fleetwood and Marina Filippelli.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

-Washington Irving

Cold Mango SouffléS Topped WiTh ToaSTed CoConuT (Makes 4) 4 small mangoes, peeled, pitted and chopped 2 tablespoons water 1 tablespoon powdered gelatine 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup superfine sugar 1/2 cup milk 1 1/4 cups heavy cream Grated rind of one orange Toasted flaked or coarsely shredded coconut, to decorate

Place a few pieces of mango in the base of each of four 2/3-cup ramekins. Wrap a creased collar of nonstick parchment paper around the outside of each dish, extending well above the rim. Secure with adhesive tape, then tie tightly with string. Pour the water into a small heatproof bowl and sprinkle the gelatine over the surface. Leave for 5 minutes or until spongy. Place the bowl in a pan of hot water, stirring occasionally, until the gelatine has dissolved. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks with the superfine sugar and milk in another heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and continue to whisk until the mixture is thick and frothy. Remove from the heat and continue whisking until the mixture cools. Whisk in the liquid gelatine. Puree the remaining mango pieces in a food processor or blender, then fold the puree into the egg yolk mixture with the orange rind. Set the mixture aside until starting to thicken. Whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Reserve 4 tablespoons and fold the rest into the mango mixture. Spoon into the ramekins until the mixture is 1 inch above the rim of each dish. Chill for 3 to 4 hours, or until set. Carefully remove the paper collars from the soufflés. Spoon a little of the reserved cream on top of each soufflé and decorate with some toasted flaked or coarsely shredded coconut.

Top home improvement tips (NC) Summer is one of the best times to focus on outdoor home improvement projects that deliver the greatest return on your investment. “While there are many renovation options available to homeowners, not all are created equal,” explains Brad Johnstone, broker of record for the Royal LePage Niagara Real Estate Centre. “Some improvements help bolster

your property’s resale value more than others, so before you invest your time and money, be sure the project will pay off in the long run.” In order to receive the best bang for your buck, Johnstone recommends these three outdoor improvement tips: 1. Build a deck or patio. A new deck or patio is a great way to add a focal point to any backyard. Not only

do these structures add to a property’s visual appeal, but they also provide homeowners with the means to enjoy their outdoor living space to the fullest. During the summer months, a patio is a great place to entertain guests, barbecue, and enjoy leisure time with friends and family. Whatever your motivation, a deck or patio will encourage you to get out and enjoy the summer, all while

adding a healthy amount to your property’s bottom line. 2. Install a sprinkler system. On average, homeowners use 50 per cent more water than necessary on their lawns, adding to their monthly bills and causing their grounds to flood. Automatic lawn sprinklers are an easy way to avoid this as they are designed with busy lifestyles in mind. Although installation can be costly, you

may save money in the long run. 3. Landscape your yard. Landscaping is one of the best ways to add visual interest to your outdoor living space for a relatively small fee. Whether you choose to garden or install a built-in fixture like a pond, beautifying your backyard is a great way to create an attractive and serene environment that builds your home’s equity.

of these programs, call Lindsey at 613-596-5625, ext. 241 or at: lziebell@nrocrc.org Use of Outdoor Fire Pits and Chimineas Outdoor fire pits and chimineas are not permitted in urban and most suburban areas. Many stores sell outdoor fire pits and chiminea’s for your backyard enjoyment, but in Barrhaven wood burning is banned. ~ No person should maintain an open fire without first having obtained the necessary permit from the Fire Chief. Any person eighteen (18) years of age or older may make a written application for an open air fire permit to the Fire Chief prior to the proposed date of the first open air fire. ~ Outdoor fireplaces are not permitted in urban areas. ~ In an area where burning is not permitted in accordance with the by-law (eg. urban, most suburban areas), wood or wood products may not be burned in an outdoor chiminea. ~ A permit is required in order to light a fire on private property; this includes having a backyard fire or using a large fire pit. ~ A permit is not necessary for outdoor natural gas, propane or ethanol fireplaces. ~ If a device is designed and intended solely for the cooking of food in the open air, it does not require an open air fire permit, provided it does not burn wood, tree limbs, branches and noncompostable material limited to paper and sisal twine. Approved cooking appliances include gas, charcoal or propane BBQ/hibachis or gas or propane outdoor fireplace [must be ULC approved]. Mailbox Maintenance The area around community mailboxes are maintained by Canada Post and not by the City. This includes snow clearing and sweeping. Site cleanups are done on a reactive basis. You must call Canada Post at 1-866-607-6301 to log a ticket with customer service for the local depot to issue a maintenance work order. Stay off the Grass! A reminder for residents and local teams to stay off grass fields until further notice. Residents, rental con-

tract holders and organizers of large public events are asked to please stay off sports fields and general turf areas at City facilities until they are open. Fields could be damaged if used when they are too wet. As conditions improve, residents, visitors and sports organizations are encouraged to use discretion when deciding to use a ball diamond or field that may be saturated. Residential Water Pooling There have been reports of water pooling and some flooding on residential streets. Water pooling occurs in some of our communities and is expected due to the use of restrictors, or Inlet Control Devices (ICDs). These devices work much like an hour glass and are engineered to only allow a certain amount of stormwater to flow in to catch basins over time. ICDs are located throughout various stormwater entry points and help manage stormwater quantity when storm sewer capacity is exceeded. ICDs prevent stormwater from discharging at critical points in the stormwater collection system and redirect it to parking lots, parks, or underground storage. When a resident contacts the City to let us know about pooling water, we send out a team to review the area to ensure there is no damage to the catch basin, or blockage occurring. We then partner with Traffic Services to ensure the area is safe for residents. Residents are asked to ensure that their local basins are clear of leaves and debris during a rain event. If pooling continues, we ask that they contact the City at 3-1-1 so that teams can be sent out to review the area. Residents can also access information about protecting their home during spring weather by visiting Ottawa.ca. Street Sweeping Operations take place from 7am-7pm in designated areas. During this time, residents may see signs posted indicating that no parking is allowed in certain areas. We ask that residents respect the signs, or they may be ticketed or towed. Street sweeping is important for keeping roads clear and safe, and to remove debris from the roadway. This year, we experienced

more ice than normal and the result is a significant amount of grit on the roadways which

our vehicles will remove. When cars are left on the roadway during sweeping

operations, we are not able to be as effective with our cleaning.

Jockvale Road Multi-Use Pathway Rail Grade-Separation Environmental Assessment – Final Open House Monday, May 6, 2019 Walter Baker Sports Centre, Food Court, 100 Malvern Drive, Ottawa, ON K2J 2G5 6 to 8:30 pm - Presentation at 7 pm - Free parking is available The City of Ottawa has initiated the Jockvale Road Multi-Use Pathway (MUP) Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to develop a Recommended Plan for a possible grade-separation of the MUP crossing where Jockvale Road crosses the VIA Rail line in Barrhaven. The study area is illustrated in the key map.

The EA study is being conducted in accordance with the Ontario’s EA Act, fulfilling requirements of a Municipal Class EA process for a Schedule C project. The EA process will involve developing and evaluating alternatives, leading to a Recommended Plan which includes functional design and capital cost estimate for implementation of the project. This second and final Public Open House will: • Provide an overview of the study objectives and study progress to-date • Review the feedback received during the study • Present the Recommended Plan for the project • Provide details of proposed mitigation measures Your participation in the Public Open House meeting is an important component of the study where you can discuss the project with the study team and provide feedback. There will be ongoing consultation activities during the remaining course of the study. Interested persons can provide comments throughout the EA process. Any comments received will be collected under the Environmental Assessment Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record. The information presented at the Public Open House event will also be available on the City’s project website ottawa.ca/JockvaleMUP. Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please call or email the City’s Project Manager, below, before the event. For further information or to provide comments, please contact: Jabbar Siddique, P.Eng.

They show videos talking about body image,

She said the students are concerned about their friends groups, their marks and trying to fit in as they are about to enter high school — a place that can come with many challenges.

“Growing up in this society you see body positivity and body movements everywhere,� she said. “We just wanted to talk about our experiences because seeing someone on the internet talk about something and seeing someone in real life who is just like you is a much different experience.� Throughout the past few

Barrhaven marathoner running to pay tribute to her father By Jeff Morris

Running puts different people in different mind sets. For Barrhaven marathoner Deana Devine, running is her connection to her late father. Devine ran the St. Lawrence Marathon in Cornwall on Saturday before attending a National Day of Mourning ceremony at Vincent Massey Park Sunday. The ceremony was a tribute to those who passed away in workplace accidents. “It was a beautiful ceremony,” she said. “There were 1,000 flags – each one representing someone who had died in a workplace accident. It was very touching.” Devine’s father passed away during a construction accident on Parliament Hill in 2005. Rico Ianucci, then a 65-year-old construction worker, was working on restoring the library on Parliament Hill. The backhoe he was driving suddenly switched into gear and fell off the cliff behind the library. Devine was pregnant with her third child at the time.

“My father could have retired at any time, but he loved to work,” she said. “When it happened, it was a shock to us all.” Devine, who ran her first marathon in 2007, connected with Threads of Life, a charitable organization that offers support and counseling for the families of victims of workplace tragedies. She said the charity has been remarkable in helping many families deal with tragedies. She has now raised more than $30,000 for Threads of Life, and each year, she wears a special red t-shirt with her father’s picture on it and the slogan, “Running for Rico.” She has even worn cloth from his old shirts during the run. “It’s been a great way to remember him,” she said. “Raising awareness for workplace accidents helps, because maybe you can reach someone who might become more conscious. You always hope you can reach people and maybe prevent an accident from happening.” Devine ran the St. Lawrence Marathon in four hours and two minutes.

Though she has broken the four-hour barrier before, she has had the same time in each of the last three marathons she has run. She placed fourth for women in her age category. “You always think, oh, if only I would have pushed a little harder and not taken it easy in certain spots on the course,” she said. “But then you look at the big picture. I have raised $30,000 running. That’s something to be proud of, and it’s more important than what my time is.” Devine is now getting ready for the Ottawa Race Weekend. She is doing the Voyageur Run, which has a 5km and a 10km on Saturday, and then a halfmarathon Sunday. She has run the full marathon several times, but she said it can sometimes be emotionally overwhelming. “There is one stretch of the marathon route that goes by the spot where the accident happened,” she said. “It’s always very emotional for me when I go by there.” Devine, who works in the administration of-

East Nepean Little League receives funding from Jays Care Foundation While the rain still pours and the wet fields have kept the fields closed through April, there is some good news for local baseball players and families. The East Nepean Eagles are among the clubs who will be receiving money from the Toronto Blue Jays’ charitable arm, Jays Care Foundation. Through its Field of

Dreams Program, the Jays are donating $1.3 million in an infrastructure investment to benefit Canadian children and youth. The investment in East Nepean Little League will benefit many players, including those in the challenger division, for this year and in the future. East Nepean Little League is one of fifteen organizations located

across five provinces and one territory will receive funding to build, enhance, and refurbish baseball diamonds where children and youth can develop important life skills and learn from positive role models. In the last five years, Jays Care has committed nearly $8 million to 66 infrastructure projects across Canada. “We are very impressed

with the diverse group of organizations receiving funding through our Jays Care Field Of Dreams grants this year,” said Robert Witchel, Executive Director, Jays Care Foundation. “With recipients spanning the country from the Atlantic to the Pacific to Baffin Bay in the Arctic Circle, these investments move us one step closer to our goal of a level playing

field for all Canadian children and youth.” Used intentionally, baseball has the power to create lasting social change for children and youth. That is why the Jays Care Foundation helps kids get involved in the game, build safe spaces in which they can play, and work with likeminded organizations to design and lead compre-
