More than 600 attend meeting on Stonebridge golf course future By Charlie Senack

Voting has started in the Stonebridge community, with some residents on edge as they wait to find out the future of their golf course. On Monday, September 30, another meeting was held at the Nepean Sportsplex, where the Stonebridge Working Group provided a status update and more specific details regarding the proposal. It was one of the most heavily attended meetings to date, with over 600 residents in attendance. While the room was primarily filled with residents who are for the proposed plan, others weren’t afraid to get up and express their anger. One of those people was Peter Nikic, whose home doesn’t back onto the golf course, but is concerned about some of the information that is being released. A few weeks back he started a group called ‘Stonebridge Facts’, which is made up of

a handful of residents who are against the proposal. The group has been protesting outside of Mattamy’s offices which are located in Half Moon Bay, and has started a petition which has garnered over 220 signatures of support in just a few weeks. “Nobody bought a house without a contract, but you are asking us to buy a seven million dollar golf course with no contract, which will go into effect 10 years from now, with no lawyers looking over the contract, nothing,” Nikic said to Jack Stirling who was brought on by the city to facilitate the process. He also demanded to see the financials of the golf course, which was not possible due to privacy laws. Other residents however see this proposal as a good thing, and the best option they are going to get. “I for one very much appreciate the work the Stonebridge Working Group

has done and the proposal that has been put forward,” said George McDonell, who lives on the course. “I think it’s a terrific compromise and settles the prime direc-

tive that we established — to maintain a golf course community. I can’t for one imagine what the consequences might be if we build up to another 2,500 homes

in that 198 acres. I’m going to pay the highest amount for the levy, and I’m quite happy to do so.” He said having a city-administered levy in place will

protect the property values of people’s homes, a common concern which came up multiple times during the series of meetings.

The IndependentCommunity Budget Consultation Meeting at Walter Baker Centre Mon., Oct. 28

It’s when you look up and around and notice the shock of brilliant colours that you realize summer has passed and we are well into October. Last weekend I was driving near Westport which is at the basin of Upper Rideau Lake and I noted the vivid colour change of blue of the water and the crimsons, oranges and yellows of the tree canopy. It is incredible to realize and witness such change over the span of a couple of weeks. I hope all of you had a good Thanksgiving weekend spending time with family and friends. We have had problems with the full launch of the LRT and it has been painful indeed for those late for work, crammed onto platforms, stuck in stairwells. I apologize. I am no expert, but I am confident that John Manconi and his team are doing all they can. I thank all who have shared their experiences and their ideas. I pass each and everyone along to OC staff. 2020 Budget Consultation Join Councillors Jan Harder, Carol Anne Meehan and Keith Egli for a 2020 Budget

School Scoop

It has been a busy start to the school year for Barrhaven students. At John McCrae, a group of grade 12’s are planning to hold a family fun day to raise money for Leukemia research. “Leukemia is just close to all of us,” said Isaiah Baptiste. “We wanted to do a fundraiser of some sort to show the love and care we have for it. Any amount of money helps.” The event will be held on the upper field of the school from 11 am to 3 pm on October 27. Meanwhile, at St. Joes, a group of boys have been busy with the Man Up program. They are dedicated to creating a culture whereby the inherent dignity of all people is respected. “It is just simply a group where we want to make the school a better place, we want the culture in our school to change, we want it to just overall be a better place for everyone,” said grade 10 student Vincenzo Calla.

Very few glowing reviews of first week of Confederation Line

The rollout of OC Transpo’s #ReallyBigServiceChange hit a few obstacles this week. By now you know, trains on the Confederation line were knocked out of service Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. An investigation is underway to determine why a problem with a door shuts the entire system down. In the meantime, commuters are being warned not to touch the doors. I am confident the door issue will be fixed. What I am more concerned about is the damage the experience has had on commuters who have had to wait more than a year longer than expected for stage one LRT to operate and are now paying higher fares to use it. I was just another body in the commuter crowds this week, and it was not a great experience. Canadians are


WARD REPORT by Carole Anne Meehan

a polite bunch, but when I asked fellow riders what they thought of the new system, they didn’t hold back. Terrible was the opinion. The platforms, too crowded, being on the train, like being in a sardine can, claustrophobic, longer walks and longer commutes. I was hard-pressed to find anyone with a glowing review. The Mayor and OC Transpo Management agree this week was painful, and they are sorry. Growing Pains, they say. Let’s hope that’s the case. While some problems can be fixed, others are go-

ing to be more challenging to resolve. I am referring to all those transit customers who are now facing longer and tougher commutes. I am puzzled as to why express routes that only ran during rush hour were eliminated. Another issue is terminals with platforms that are too small for the volume of passengers. This is a potential safety hazard. In many of the emails I received this week, commuters complained of too few doors in the stations, which caused bottlenecks and very long walks to catch connecting buses, a walk that provides no protection from the elements. I do not look forward to -20 degree weather with winds whipping up snow. I consider myself fit, but I have to admit that when I take transit to work I arrive home exhausted.

It does not help that it takes an hour and a half to travel 25 kilometers. So here’s my worry. Transit should make our lives easier. So far, our new multi-billion-dollar LRT has failed to do that. I have heard more than a few people say they are going back to driving. As a Councillor who is actively promoting transit as an alternative to congestion on our roads, I find this disheartening. Still, I am hopeful we can turn this around. The system is new, and everyone wants it to work, so I am confident there will be a lot of consultation and tweaking. I promise I will be at that table to ensure we get the commuter network we pay for and deserve. Please continue to send me your feedback. Carolanne. meehan@ottawa.ca

Candidates discuss infrastructure, local economy in All-Candidates meeting By Charlie Senack

As voters get ready to hit the polls on October 21, the Barrhaven Business Improvement Association held an all candidates debate for the riding of Nepean. The debate took place at Cedarview Alliance Church on Wednesday, October 9, with over 100 people in attendance. Incumbent Liberal MP Chandra Arya is running for a second term, alongside Conservative candidate Brian St Louis, NDP candidate Zaff Ansari, Green Party candidate Jean-Luc Cooke, People’s Party candidate Azim Hooda, and Communist candidate Dustan Wang. All six of them took part in the debate. Many topics were discussed during the roughly two-hour debate, with lots of focus on economic development and infrastructure in Barrhaven. Conservative candidate Brian St. Louis referred to working at multiple small businesses in the community

when he was a teen, and said it’s important to make Canada a competitor in the business world. “When we are talking about government grants helping businesses, I’m going to tell you what businesses want,” said St. Louis. “It’s not little grants. They want the government to stay out of their way, stay out of their pocket, and make policy that allows everyone to prosper.” Incumbent Liberal candidate Chandra Arya praised the Liberal government for supporting small businesses, rhyming off statistics as to how many they helped, saying they have created over a million new jobs for Canadians in the last four years. He said the rate of unemployment is the lowest it’s been in 40 years, and says its easier now than ever for youth to find a job. NDP candidate Zaff Ansari on the other hand shared a vision which was much different and somewhat confusing compared to the others. He said Canada needs to create a

pharmacare plan, and as a result it will help support local small businesses. “The NDP have a plan,” Ansari said. “Right now Canada is one of the only countries without pharmacare. By getting the pharmacare it’s going to help the businesses as well as the employees because the businesses will have $600 on each employee and the employees will save $500 a year on pharmacare.” Another discussion which came up at the debate was infrastructure investment, and how it could be improved in the riding of Nepean. It comes at a time the area has had some troubles with the transportation system, and lots of work being done on city roads. Arya used the opportunity again to praise the Liberal party’s achievements over their four-year term in office, and rhymed off dollar amounts they spent here in the city of Ottawa. “In addition to the LRT which everyone knows, we have given the City of Ottawa 126 million for non-LRT


infrastructure,” stated Arya. “The city used part of the money to build the Chapman Mills Transit way, (and) the city used the money to build the park and rides.” He also said the federal government funded all infrastructure projects the city asked for, and said it’s important for all three levels of government to work together. Arya also stated that Ottawa had an opportunity to get light rail out to Barrhaven 10 years ago, but the idea was cancelled by the city. Ansari however said that he believes light rail transit could be rolling into Barrhaven before phase three if more money flowed from the federal level. Phase two is expected to bring light rail transit out to the east, west, and south ends of the city, with the trains stopping at Baseline station in the west. Once completed by 2027, phase three will begin which will then bring the trains out to Barrhaven. “We are committed to investment in infrastructure

All six Nepean candidates in the upcoming federal election participated in the All-Candidates Meeting hosted by the Barrhaven BIA. CHARLIE SENACK PHOTO projects like transportation LRT and widening roads,” said Ansari. “It will help businesses grow and it will make it easier for people to visit so it will help the businesses.” St. Louis said he has lived in Barrhaven for most of his life and has seen the traffic impacts in the area get worse over time. He said infrastructure is broken down into two categories — one of which is funding the projects. “LRT is one of those things I will absolutely be fighting for (and) I’ve already been hav-

ing conversations,” he said. “I think as a federal representative, your job is to collaborate. The way you get things moving is you get a lot of people together all on the same page, while working together and collaboratively on the same precise message.” Pollsters currently have the Liberals and Conservatives polling neck and neck, with the NDP picking up some speed. They say Nepean is an interesting riding to watch for, one of the only in Ottawa which may change parties on October 21

Food affordability needs to be a key election issue Troy Media – One of the main issues shaping the current federal election campaign is affordability. It has repeatedly been a leading concern for Canadians in opinion polls and should help determine who wins. So it’s no surprise that every political party promises to focus on housing affordability, which affects every generation. But none of the parties have focused much on the issue of food security and the widespread anxieties Canadians have around being able to afford to eat. Food costs are rising faster than inflation and healthy food may be getting out of the reach for many Canadians. What’s not helping are unsustainable debt levels and skyrocketing housing costs across much of the country. Food security is hidden in policy discussions about farming and agricultural development, food waste, local food systems or a national food policy that mixes these and other issues. When it is raised, it’s often only in relation to Canada’s North – and that shows a failure to recognize that food insecurity is experienced across all regions of the country. Of the parties that have released platform documents, only the Greens and NDP explicitly mention food security. Both do so only once. For the NDP, it’s only in reference to families in the North, although party leader Jagmeet Singh has talked about access to local food while stumping. Neither the Liberals or Conservatives have released such documents and Internet searches produce little direct information on how or if they plan to deal with food security. So it’s no surprise so many Canadians don’t know where the parties stand on food affordability. The Dalhousie poll does suggest that Canadians believe the NDP to be best positioned to address food security. And food waste seems to be the one issue the Greens own, based on the survey’s results. We still have a few weeks remaining before Canadians go to the polls on Oct. 21. It’s not too late for parties to address the issue. Given how close the election is, failing to do so will be at their peril. That’s because 55 per cent of Canadians polled, when forced to choose a single food-related issue, say that food security and affordability for all Canadians should be our next government’s agri-food priority over the next four years. It’s time our leaders recognized that when we talk about affordability, we can’t forget the need to eat. Dr. Sylvain Charlebois is senior director of the agri-food analytics lab and a professor in food distribution and policy at Dalhousie University, and a senior fellow with the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies. Dr. Howard Ramos is a professor of sociology at Dalhousie University. BARRHAVEN

Nepean Conservative candidate Brian St. Louis was joined by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney on the campaign trail Oct. 4.

Alberta Premier visits Nepean to campaign for Brian St. Louis By Charlie Senack

The Conservative Party is sending out some of its top people as a way to gain support, including in the riding of Nepean. On Friday, October 4, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney drove up to a packed room of supporters in Nepean, where he was out campaigning for local Conservative candidate Brian St. Louis. It’s a move many Ontarians have been questioning, especially since Ontario Premier Doug Ford has not been out on the federal campaign trail. “I’m going to be spending the next couple of days in Ontario as I promised Albertans in the last provincial election campaign,” Kenney told the room of over 100 people. “I said I would do everything I could to defeat the Trudeau Liberal government (and) to elect a government that will be focused on the concerns of ordinary Canadians.” Outside of St. Louis’ campaign office located on a Cedarview Drive, Liberal candidates scrummed with reporters after Kenney’s speech, asking why the Premier of Ontario wasn’t on the campaign trail.

“Conservatives are calling in a pinch hitter from Alberta,” said Steve Mackinnon, who is running as the Liberal incumbent in the riding of Gatineau. “Where is Doug Ford? We are here in the province of Ontario.” Back inside campaign HQ, Kenney talked about the importance of Canada’s relationship with Alberta, especially when it comes to jobs, resources and economic growth. But thanks to the Trudeau government, he says, many Albertans are jobless with their incomes slashed, calling the reason behind this “job killing policies of the Justin Trudeau Liberal government.” “You all know Canadians who have moved out west to peruse opportunity, and here is my point,” he said, “I look at this from a big Canada perspective. For Canada to be strong, we need a strong Ontario, we need a strong Alberta, and we need a national government that will let us prosper.” Kenney says that will be done by building infrastructure that helps create wealth, and helps Canada get on the map when it comes to energy on the global market. “If we don’t sell out energy on the global markets, the dic-

tatorships will and that’s not good,” he said. “That’s not good for the planet, it’s not good for the environment, it’s not good for human rights.” Kenney added that a conservative government will help this vision come into fruition, noting that it’s time for Canada to have “big projects” again. He also praised St. Louis for his knowledge — referencing his jobs in the natural resource and high-tech sectors, as well as on Parliament Hill. And as an effort to help win votes of families, Kenney referenced the Conservatives family tax cut promise, which is worth $850 for an average family. “It’s universal, it applies to everyone,” he said. Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer held a campaign rally in Nepean before the official campaign even started, and is the only major leader to visit the riding this election season. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has stopped in the neighbouring riding of Carleton a few times — one the Liberals lost in the last election by only a few hundred votes — and was campaigning at Millers’ Farm and Market on October 10. Voters will head to the polls on Oct. 21.

The EA study is being conducted in accordance with the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) Ontario Regulation 231/08 in accordance with the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The study process will involve developing and evaluating alternatives, leading to a Recommended Plan in consideration of the surrounding environmental (social, natural, physical and economic) conditions. There will be ongoing public consultation activities during the course of the study. This first Open House will provide: • An overview of the study objectives, need and opportunities, existing conditions and study progress to-date • Design options for the LRT alignment from Baseline Station to the Nepean Sportsplex, • A preliminary plan to convert the Southwest Transitway to LRT from the Nepean Sportsplex to Barrhaven Town Centre including rail grade-separations of Woodroffe Avenue, Southwest Transitway and Fallowfield Road, and • Next steps Your participation in the Open House is an important component of the study where you can discuss the project with the study team and provide feedback.

Why did you get in-

Getting less than the best is not an option There is only one way to find out….undergo a hearing assessment! All joking aside, a hearing assessment is an invaluable part of your overall health review. Much like eyes and teeth, ears should also be looked at regularly. This is particularly important now that studies have shown links between untreated hearing loss and memory, cognition, falls, social engagement, annual earnings and depression, not to mention its impact on your relationships. There is no doubt you will want to be proactive with even the slightest hearing loss! Hearing is surprisingly complex and individualized and so finding that right solution is not as simple a process as one might think. The good news is that there are many manufacturers allowing for a great variety of solutions to meet the multitude of unique hearing needs. The key to success is a thorough assessment followed by a customized solution. Offering just that is Hearing Freedom, a locally owned, grown, and operated clinic.

Their grass-roots approach is unfortunately rare in today’s retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. The unique and refreshing approach that sets Hearing Freedom apart from other providers was established nearly 20 years ago by Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology. After many local interviews for employment, she was disheartened to discover the same thing at each establishment; the interview 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 biggest profit margins. I wanted to treat my patients the

way I expect to be treated by my healthcare professionals… consideration for all treatment plans and choosing the one that is best, for me, the unique individual that I am.” 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 whole process and there is no predetermined product or plan. Each and every patient’s intervention plan is truly as unique as they are. The experience begins with a very thorough hearing assessment which is followed by a detailed needs assessment. Then, the Audiologist will take the time to research the market, considering ALL makes and models, so as to select the right product for that specific patient. This is followed by a 90-day trial period. This extensive trial gives patients the confidence that they have the right solution for them, their lifestyle and their unique hearing needs. In addition, there are no Hearing Instru-

ment Practitioners or Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Freedom. Patients are rather seen by bilingual Audiologists, University trained clinicians 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. “And Manufacturers differ in what they offer. 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. Parking is free. Home visits optional. Wheelchair Friendly. For more information visit www.HearingFreedom.com

Artists of Stonebridge – ‘Painting the Town’ for Ten Years

From the Artists of Stonebridge

This year, the Artists of Stonebridge will proudly host their 10th Annual ‘Paint the Town’ Art Show and Sale at the Stonebridge Golf Club October 19-20. To celebrate this 10-year milestone, and to raise awareness of local wildlife and their habitat,

the group launched a special challenge to their members: paint local wildlife in its natural habitat that they have personally seen within the Barrhaven community. Our talented artists were able to observe and capture in their art, birds and animals living in our very own ‘backyard’. The challenge resulted in The Wildlife and Habitat

Collection consisting of ten original wildlife paintings which will be featured at the 2019 art show. In the spirit of increasing our understanding of wildlife species and their habitat the Artists of Stonebridge have chosen to support The Ottawa Carleton Wildlife Centre (OCWC), a local notfor-profit organization. The

OCWC is committed to raising awareness of wildlife and to educating people on the conservation of the natural world so that wildlife can live and thrive. Donations to the OCWC will be collected at the upcoming 10th Annual Art Show and Sale in October. The Wildlife and Habitat Collection will first be exhibited to the public at

the show and will then be circulated through our additional exhibit venues around the City. In addition, the ten paintings will be reproduced as greeting cards, available

for purchase as a set, or individually. The Artists of Stonebridge hosted its first Art Show and Sale in 2010.
