Poilievre shares memories of trip to France for Dieppe anniversary By Barrhaven Independent staff The Canada 150th Barbecue in Riverside South will have a greater meaning for
Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre. Poilievre, who served Barrhaven as the Conservative MP for a decade before his riding was split, was
selected to represent the Conservative Party of Canada on the official visit to France for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Dieppe.
A member of each opposition party was selected to accompany Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the trip. “I am very blessed to have been the
Conservative delegate on the trip,” said Poilievre. “The Veterans’ Affairs Department put together a very impressive group of Canadian veterans,
representing all of the regiments that took part in the Dieppe raid.”

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Barrhaven teens help bring the stories of the community to life
From traffic to community spirit local students interpret residents’ experiences of Barrhaven By Barrhaven Independent Staff A group of five students brought the stories of Barrhaven to life for a small gathering of people at Ken Ross Park Saturday, Aug. 19. The Barrhaven Youth Theatre Ensemble Performance is a part of the city’s Playing Back Our Neighbourhood Stories Program. The program was presented and funded by AOE Arts Council as a celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. There are 12 such projects in neighbourhoods throughout Ottawa.
Artist Naomi Tessler led the group, training the youth in playback theatre and building community engagement through inviting Barrhaven residents to share their stories of community. “The program is all about telling the stories of each neighbourhood,” said Patrice Stanley of AOE Arts Canada. “The project started in April and the teens involved are all volunteers.” Four students acted out the stories of Barrhaven while another played music. Jesse Wang, Yanni Dai, Sharon Xu and Shayla Lan-
thier brought the stories with guitarist Jenna Kayed providing the musical backdrop. “The program is about using theatre to help build the community,” said Tessler. “Playback is all about getting the audience to share their stories of the community and the neighbourhood they live in.” After hearing the stories, the students use improv skills to “play back” the story they had just heard. The first performance by the group took place at the Court of Barrhaven Seniors Home. One of the un-
expected challenge was the language gap between the Millennial performers and the seniors living at the Court of Barrhaven. “One of the seniors talked about how Barrhaven was ‘out in boonies,’ and the kids just looked at me with a blank expression,” Tessler said. “They had never heard that expression before. I was surprised that something like that isn’t a part of their lexicon.” During the performance at Ken Ross Park, the students heard the audience tell stories about being newcomers to Barrhaven,
and about being newcomers to Canada. They heard stories that ranged from the perception of Barrhaven being too far away from the city, Barrhaven’s community spirit and its passion for its Santa Claus Parade, Barrhaven’s multi-cultural flavour and diversity, the traffic problems in Bar-
rhaven, and the fact that Barrhaven has had to come together a few different times in the past few years in the face of tragedy. “Barrhaven is a friendly community with a lot of spirit,” said Tessler. “It was exciting to see the young people hear the stories of the community and bring them to life.”

poilievre continues from page 1 Poilievre visited Dieppe and the neighbouring towns of Pourville and Puys on the trip. The three towns were sights of the Canadian landings on the raid, as in those areas the cliffs along the shoreline were low enough for the allied forces to land. Dieppe was selected as the main target of the raid partially because it was within range of fighter planes from Britain. The Allies’ plan was to launch a largescale amphibious landing, damage enemy shipping and port facilities, and gather intelligence on German defences and radar technology. The Dieppe Raid, codenamed “Operation Jubilee,” saw more than 6,000 men come ashore at five different points along a 16 kilometre-long stretch of heavily defended coastline. Four of the attacks were to take place just before dawn at points east and west of Dieppe, while the main attack on the town itself would take place half an hour later. The raiding force was made up of almost 5,000 Canadians, approximately 1,000 British commandos and 50 American Army Rangers. Canadian soldiers had been training since the outset of the war in 1939 and, except for the Battle
of Hong Kong, had yet to see significant action. There was political pressure at home to finally get the Canadians into battle, as well as impatience within the army itself. Things immediately went wrong for the landing force on the eastern flank. They encountered a small German convoy and the ensuing firefight alerted the enemy. The soldiers that came ashore at Berneval and Puys consequently were met with overwhelming fire and some of the heaviest Allied losses took place there. Some objectives on the western flank were achieved and the enemy gun batteries at Varengeville were destroyed. In Pourville, the South Saskatchewan Regiment and the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders came ashore and pushed towards their goals. The mounting German resistance, however, would force them to withdraw with heavy losses. Running behind schedule, the main force going ashore at Dieppe landed as daylight was breaking. The German troops, now alerted to the raid, cut down many Canadians as they waded in the surf. Nevertheless, many of our soldiers fought their way across the cobblestone beach to the relative pro-
tection of the seawall. The same cobblestones and seawall made it hard for the Allied tanks to move off the beach and the fierce enemy fire prevented engineers from clearing the way for them to push their way into the town. Small groups from the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry and the Essex Scottish Regiment were able to fight their way into the bullet-swept streets of Dieppe. It was clear, however, that the raid could not continue and the retreat soon began. Trying to evacuate everyone, however, would mean the probable destruction of the Allied naval force. Through great courage, many men were taken off the beaches under heavy fire, but by early afternoon the last boat had departed. Left in a hopeless situation, the remaining Canadians were forced to surrender. The raid was over. Many acts of great courage took place during the Dieppe Raid and two Canadians would earn the Victoria Cross, our country’s highest award for military valour. Lieutenant-Colonel Cecil Merritt earned the medal for courageously leading his men from the South Saskatchewan Regiment across the River Scie at Pourville in the face of heavy resistance. Once
the regiment could go no farther, he then led a dangerous retreat that allowed most of the men to escape back to Britain. Merritt himself was captured and spent the rest of the conflict as a prisoner of war. “Lieutenant-Colonel Merritt’s daughter was there to lay a wreath on a bridge that was named after him,” Poilievre said. “He stayed behind to deliver fire to ensure that his men could retreat. He stayed behind to the point where he was captured. The remarkable thing is that he would have only been 22 years old at the time.” Another hero on the trip with Poilievre was Paul Delorme, a Metis soldier from Saskatchewan. “He gave us vivid recollections of everything he experienced,” said Poilievre. “At one point, he was asked what he was thinking. He said, ‘The last time I was at this place was 75 years ago, and I was surrounded by angry German soldiers who I thought were going to kill me. Now, here I am surrounded by loving Canadians in the same spot.’ That was very powerful to hear.” Although the battle happened 75 years ago, it has not been forgotten in France. “Thousands of French

citizens showed up for the parade,” Poilievre said. “They were four deep for two straight miles. They were cheering, crying and clapping. There were children giving flowers to veterans in wheelchairs. There were a lot of powerful images there.” Of the 4,963 Canadians who embarked on the Dieppe raid, only approximately 2,200 returned to England and many of those had been wounded. More than 3,350 Canadians became casualties, including a total of 916 who lost their lives as a result of the raid and approximately 1,950 more who were taken prisoner. A total of 210 British and American personnel also lost their lives. On Sept. 9, Poilievre will
be in Riverside South for a special barbecue at Claudette Cain Park in the shadows of the Vimy Bridge. The memories from his trip to Dieppe will still be fresh. “Sometimes we forget how important the Canadian contribution to the war was and the impact we have had on countries like France and the Netherlands,” he said. “This trip was a reminder of that enormous contribution. “Canadian soldiers became known as great warriors. This trip really opened our eyes to just how loved Canadians are, and how much of an impact our soldiers had on the world and still have. It makes me proud to be Canadian.”

The IndependentCommunity Community says good-bye to George Kennedy and Lois Long
George Kennedy passed away last week. George was a long time Barrhaven resident, proud Lion and Legion member. Many of us are saddened and know that he will be missed. If you live in Barrhaven it’s likely you have seen the Longfields sign on the Petro Canada property at Woodroffe and Fallowfield. Longfields was named after the Long family. If you live on James Long Court you will know well the original farm house. Lois Long was the only child of James Buchanan Long and Ida May (Davidson) Long. Lois was so excited about naming that new Barrhaven community after her family she bought that sign herself. She wasn’t pleased with the landscaping planted around the sign so one day she and I met on site so Lois could tell me some plants she wanted put there that wouldn’t overshadow/ hide the sign. Lois was a true champion of Nepean and always valued her roots. She passed away at age 95. Here is a photo from November 2001 when we put up the Longfields sign. Congratulations to the Nepean Knights competitive lacrosse team who have just wrapped up their most successful year in the clubs’ 47-year history with six medals at the Ontario Lacrosse Association box lacrosse championships.

Ottawa Public Health: West Nile Virus
Recently Ottawa Public Health (OPH) has received confirmation of the first human case of West Nile Virus (WNV) in Ottawa for the 2017 WNV
Season. This is an infection that can be spread by the Northern House Mosquito, and in small number of cases cause a flu-like illness in humans. While symptoms only show in about 20% of cases, OPH is still encouraging residents to take precautions to prevent the spread of WNV. These include treating areas of standing water where mosquitos can breed, applying Health Canada-
approved mosquito repellent, staying away from bushy or wooded areas between dusk and dawn, and ensuring the proper condition of window screens around the home. OPH is also doing its part with weekly surveillance and the treating of major standing water sites. For more information on WNV and how to prevent it residents can visit OttawaPublicHealth.ca or call OPH at 613-580-6744.

Taxing professionals no way to grow the economy The Liberal Party ran on and won the 2015 federal election in large measure because of its promise to improve the economy. Unfortunately, in too many cases the actions of the now-governing Liberals run contrary to this important goal. The latest example is the government’s proposal to eliminate certain loopholes for small businesses that are largely used by professionals such as doctors and dentists. These loopholes allow eligible professionals to reduce their comparative tax burden. At first blush, getting rid of loopholes seems to be sound policy. The tax system shouldn’t provide advantages for otherwise similar households based on how income is earned. However, it’s important to understand why anyone would use such loopholes, since doing so comes at a cost. Professionals spend money on accountants and lawyers to capitalize on these loopholes. These expenses make sense because the costs are less than the benefits gained by lowering their effective tax rates. The tax savings are a result of large gaps in tax rates between different levels and types of income. These tax differences are the reason people pursue these loopholes. If the government reduced the gaps between tax rates, it would reduce the incentives of such tax planning in the first place. Instead, the Liberals made this gap larger when they increased the top federal tax rate from 29 to 33 per cent. By making the tax gap larger, Ottawa inadvertently increased the incentives for eligible professionals to use these loopholes. Another problem with the government’s approach to these tax changes is how it plans to use the expected revenues from closing the loopholes, which is estimated at $250 million. The standard approach is to close loopholes and use the resulting revenues to reduce tax rates. In doing so, the government would eliminate special preferences for certain groups while reducing tax rates for everyone, thus improving the economic environment for workers, business owners, entrepreneurs and investors. Instead, Ottawa plans to retain all the new revenues. Another worrying aspect of the government’s approach to this tax change is that it seems to have ignored any potential responses from those affected. Indeed, the operating assumption in its working paper is that none of the professionals affected will respond other than to passively pay more taxes. But the remaining large gap in tax rates means there’s a strong incentive for those affected to respond. The responses could include raising their prices and passing on the higher tax rates to customers, offering less services, or paying even more for accountants and lawyers to find new ways to lower their tax rates. None of these responses improve the economy. While the federal government is right to worry about tax fairness, its approach continues to be deeply flawed. Canadians would be far better served if the reforms were aimed at simplifying taxes (like removing special privileges) and lowering rates. Such reforms would actually improve our economy. Troy Media Charles Lammam and Jason Clemens are economists with the Fraser Institute.

MacLeod introduces Nepean-Carleton 150 Inspiration Awards at BBQ By Charlie Senack On Sunday, about a thousand people gathered at Ken Ross Park to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday during a community picnic hosted by Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod. The picnic featured free hotdogs, sausages and hamburgers provided by Kelly Ross of Ross’ Independent grocer. “The food was really incredible,” said MacLeod. “(Great) to see so many (residents) bring their own dish, one from their own culture or from their own fridge.” Local multicultural dance performers from China, India and Italy entertained while food from different corners of the world was enjoyed. MacLeod holds a picnic in Barrhaven every year, yet wanted to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, and what being Canadian meant to her. “Canada is the freest nation,” said MacLeod. “It’s the place I grew up, it’s the place where my daughter has opportunity, (and) it’s a place where people from around the world aspire to live,” To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, volun-
Dancers from China entertained the crowds at the Canada 150 barbecue hosted by Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod at Ken Ross Park in Barrhaven Sun., Aug. 27.
teers put up 150 Canadian flags that were donated by the Riverside South Community Centre, yet eight were stolen on Friday night, and about 20 others were damaged. “I was really quite disgusted by that. This is our flag, this is our country,” said MacLeod. “Our flag stands for freedom, dem-
ocracy, all the wonderful things that we have in this country,” On Saturday evening, MacLeod replaced the damaged and stolen flags, and had a team of volunteers stand guard overnight including her husband. She said a few teens tried to vandalize them yet again, yet was scared away. MacLeod has reported the
incident to Ottawa Police and Ottawa Bylaw. Also during the picnic, MacLeod launched the Nepean-Carleton 150 Inspiration Awards to commemorate Canada and Ontario’s 150th Anniversary. MacLeod got the idea after the Government of Canada did not recognize the year with a medallion. “Typically the govern-
ment of Canada recognizes a momentous event like Canada 150, (but) this year they didn’t with a medallion,” said MacLeod. “I really wanted an opportunity to thank my volunteers, the people in my community who go above and beyond, who make sure our food cupboard runs, who went to war and supported our commun-
ity and nation building efforts, and other people who have just been good people over the years.” Anyone who wants to nominate someone who they feel should win the award can do so at lisamacleod.com until the end of November. The award ceremony is expected to take place sometime in December.

Hearing Freedom is what’s best for You! Keeping you connected with everything and everyone, your ability to hear is priceless. Unfortunately, one in ten of us suffer from hearing loss. If gnored, even the slightest hearing loss has significant consequences. You become disconnected from your world as loved ones become mumblers and asking to repeat becomes a nuisance. Your safety and independence is compromised. You risk misdiagnoses, diminishing cognitive abilities and depression. Indeed, untreated or improperly treated hearing loss has a pronounced negative impact on your quality of life. Although the negative impact of untreated hearing loss is universal, the details of your hearing ability and hearing needs are unique to you. Consequently, overcoming even the slightest hearing loss is best achieved if the solution selected is just as distinctive as you are. To achieve this, all products available need to be considered and discussed. Fortunately, at Hearing Solutions Clinic your freedom of choice is held paramount. So much so, it is rebranding to Hearing Freedom this year! Locally grown, owned and operated,
this clinic adopts a unique and refreshing approach to patient care which drastically differs with that of retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. In 2001, as a newly graduated Audiologist, Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology, had many interviews for positions at local dispensaries. At each establishment she was disappointed to find the same thing; the interviews had nothing to do with her knowledge and skills, they instead 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 wanted to focus on my patients’ needs, not sales. I wanted to be able to consider everything available, not just the product lines providing the employer the biggest profit margins. I wanted to be driven by satisfied customers and by their improved quality of life.” And so she decided to set up her own business, doing it her way and putting patients first, offering true Hearing Freedom. Now, nearly 15 years later, she continues to help patients stay young, active and socially connected.
Rosanne’s clinic offers a program of care where there are no limitations on service or product. Unlike larger companies and chains, 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 and continued follow-up. Throughout, the patient’s opinions and concerns are held paramount. “We don’t give up until our patients’ hearing needs are met.” explains McNamee, “We offer a 90-day trial period on all hearing aids. This extensive trial gives patients the confidence that they have chosen the right solution for them, their lifestyle and hearing needs.” Furthermore, there are no Hearing Instrument Practitioners or Hearing Instrument Specialists on staff. Patients are rather seen by the owner, a bilingual Audiologist who holds a Doctoral degree in Audiology. She is qualified to service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WCB, VAC, ACSD, etc).
“Hearing is complex and so are today’s hearing aids,” McNamee explains. “Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.” At this unique clinic you will never worry whether or not you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs. This grass-roots business model is very rare in today’smarket and it is this refreshing approach that sets them apart from other hearing companies. That is why none of the core values, beliefs and principles will change as they rebrand to the name Hearing Freedom this year. So, if you believe in your right to the best, fullest and most customized service available, make sure you consult Rosanne McNamee in Manotick. You won’t regret the short drive!

The IndependentDISCOVERBARRHAVEN.COM Exhalo is a full-service spa that treats your mind, body and soul
As Tanya Farlinger peeked out the window at the long line up for the grand opening event for her new business, Exhalo Spa, she realized that her vision had become reality, and her dream had come true. Farlinger opened the business in the Barrhaven Rio Can Mall with a soft opening in June. Located between the LCBO and Cineplex beside Toys on Fire, her unique business provides one-of-a-kind services in Ottawa. “It’s been a dream of mine to do this for 25 years,” Farlinger said. “Things have been going very well since we opened, and we are continuing to pick up momentum.” Her grand opening gave her an indication of just how well her business has been received. “I was pleasantly surprised,” Farlinger said. “We were a little overwhelmed, but in a good way. We opened in Barrhaven because we saw a real need for these kinds of services in the community and the surrounding area. Women were going to Kanata or downtown for these services. Now, they are offered here.” Farlinger calls Exhalo the spa that feeds your soul. She says the word “exhalo” is a unique creation and intentional play on the words exhale and halotherapy. Their carefully created mandala
logo centers and calms the mind, and features the throat chakra symbol known as the center of purification, as this is where energy becomes transformed. The throat chakra not only relates to the respiratory system, but is considered the voice of the body. The vivid tones of blue best represent this fifth chakra and first of the higher or spiritual chakras, and were inspired by colours of both the sea and air. Customers can enjoy halotherapy (dry salt therapy) in the salt room with seating for six, luxurious organic Spa treatments along with waxing and sugaring services in their three treatment rooms, four pedicure and three manicure stations to suit group parties or individuals, full make-up artistry services and professional Wella hair care and colour services all within a warm and relaxing environment. “We are the only true full-service day spa in Barrhaven,” Farlinger said. Haloptherapy is one of the signature services at Exhalo. The term “Halotherapy” comes from “halo”, the Greek word for salt. Halotherapy is a powerful, yet natural treatment in a controlled air medium that simulates the natural salt cave micro-climate. This dry salt vapor is used to treat respiratory ailments, skin conditions as well as reduces symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression all while customers relax and simply breathe. While the spa is unique to the area, Farlinger said the biggest asset she has is her staff. She has an experienced and skilled

team of certified aestheticians and licensed hair dressers. “I spent decades managing other spas and working in marketing in the industry,” she said. “I was able to hand pick the best people that I have ever had working for me or working with me. They are talented and experienced, and they will ensure consistency with each visit for our customers. I have known 80 per cent of our staff for 15 years or longer.” Another unique concept that the spa has is family day. There are always conflicts of what to do with children if you are going to the spa for a day, and some people going to a spa don’t want to be around other people’s children if they are going to the spa. On Sundays, the Halotherapy room becomes a playful salt box complete with toys and salty “sand”. Parents can enjoy the benefits of respiratory treatments alongside their children, and mom can even bring her child to her spa or hair appointment. While the spa has been a big success, opening it was a big victory for Farlinger. She recently got a clean bill of health after a battle with colon cancer. “People think of older men when they hear about colon cancer, but here I was as a young woman getting diagnosed,” she said. “It is a disease that can affect anybody.” Farlinger was first diagnosed with the disease five years ago. She said defeating cancer helped push her toward her dream of owning her own spa. “It changes everything,” she said of the diagnosis. “It makes you

not take anything for granted and really think about what you want to do.” Farlinger was inspired to become Ottawa’s only certified specialist in oncology aesthetics, with specific training for aesthetics for cancer patients and survivors. It is something that she is planning on adding to the menu of services at Exhalo. She also carries a line of Under Carriage deodorant creams for men and women. The prod-
uct is a locally-owned Barrhaven product and has been flying off the shelves. “Just the fact that we carry Under Carriage products has brought people in the door,” she said. “There is a huge demand for it.” Forever the marketer, Farlinger says that her spa is a place that treats the mind, body and soul. “We have a beautiful place and everyone here has a lot of experience,” she said. “Simply exhale. We’ve got you.”

I read the books that I have to read for English class, and that’s about it. I much rather watch plays or movies. Visual performances are better for me than reading. However, my favourite book is The Great Gatsby. The imagery that F. Scott Fitzgerald creates is absolutely magical. His descriptive language makes me feel like I’m one of the characters, a third

party, living in the book. There’s something about the romantic tone in the dark novel that gives you this warm feeling you can’t shake.” Who is your favourite author? “My favourite author is definitely Stephen King. Again, I’m not a big reader, but the material I have read from him, was absolutely spine chilling. “It” was my favourite novel he wrote. It was a long one, but it was so good I couldn’t read it alone. I was too scared. You know they’re a good author, when you have to be in a public area to not get creeped out by what you know is fiction.” Accomplishments: “I’ve been on Honour Roll from the beginning of my high school career. I really hope I continue to keep up my grades, because it’s really important to me. I won the Friendship Award two years in a row, and the Principals Award the following year (2012-2014). I think it is super important to be involved and hang around with everyone. That’s where you truly learn and grow
as a person, through your friend’s situations, challenges, and their views and opinions on everything. This past year I was nominated for a Cappie for my performance in our school’s production of Almost Maine, a play directed by Mrs. Kowal, (The best director ever!). I was nominated for Comic Actress, but unfortunately did not win. It was an amazing experience, and I was happy for the others that took wins for our school that night! Sara Gebara: Creativity and Tech Crew: Special Effects.” Activities/Interests: “My interests are competitive dance outside of school, dance class at school, being involved in the drama production each year, singing and playing the guitar, and planning murder mystery parties for me and my friends.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I LOVE everything to do with the arts. I truly do not know what I would do without music, acting, and dancing. I need an outlet to express every emotion I’m feeling – not to mention the people you meet are wonderful. I grew as a dancer, but also as a person after dancing with my team this year. Those girls have given me end-
less laughs, and the best memories. My amazing coaches, Isabelle and Lianna, push me to my limits, and inspire me to continue to do what I love. Through plays, vocals class or talent shows and competitions, I have had experiences that I wouldn’t give up for the world. That’s why I do what I do.” Career Goals: “My dream is to become an artist of some sort. Dancing is where my heart is, where I am most free and happy. I’d love to have a job where I am growing and having fun everyday. May that be teaching, choreographing, or simply performing, dance is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Who knows? I might even own my own studio one day!”

Barrhaven golfer gains valuable experience at CP Canadian Women’s Open By Jeff Morris Brooke Henderson may be the darling of golf in the Ottawa area, but she was not the only local golfer competing at the CP Canadian Women’s Open at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club last weekend. John McCrae Secondary School graduate Grace St-Germain, 19, was also competing in the event. For StGermain, it was her second professional tournament in which she competed as an amateur. The first was in June in Cambridge, ON. St-Germain received a sponsor’s exemption to compete in the tournament, and she was caddied by Scott MacLeod of Flagstick Magazine. “The experience was cool, and I went into it with a positive attitude,” said St-Germain, who was 9-over on Thursday and 1-over on Friday, missing the cut for the final two rounds. For St-Germain, the event was a learning experience. She improved her second round by eight strokes over her first round. “I learned to play aggressively, but smart,” she said. “I tried to hit the fat side of the greens but close to the pin. In the first round I went to the fat side of the greens but I took a more aggressive line and it didn’t really help. My ball striking wasn’t where it needed to be and it made things more difficult.” St-Germain went into her second round with more confidence. She worked on her chipping and ball striking between rounds. “I took it one shot at a time and minimized the risks,” she said.

Despite missing the cut, the experience was a great one for St-Germain. “We had a lot of fun out there,” she said.
St-Germain, who is 11 months younger than Henderson, will be going into her second year at Dayton State College in Florida. In the fall of
2018, she will be attending school at the University of Arkansas. With files from Mike Carroccetto
