The IndependentNEWS Community gathers at Larkin Park in wake of the Storm of ‘18 By Charlie Senack

In the aftermath of a tragedy that knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of Ottawa residents, the Barrhaven community gathered at Larkin Park. At its peak, over 175,000 Ottawa residents were without power — most of them in the Nepean and Barrhaven areas. Councillor Harder says that is due to severe damage at the Hydro One station on Merivale Rd. “It was hit like it was hit by a bomb (and) It’s totally destroyed,” Harder said. “Two of the big towers are down and they have to get them fixed before we have a chance to get back on.” Bryce Conrad, the President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa said the transformer station is relatively close to the Arlington Woods area, an area of the city that sustained the most damage. Crews were also sent in from the Toronto area to get power back to the community as soon as possible. The timing of the tragic events that unfolded couldn’t have come at a better time. A corn roast and hot dog boil hosted by the West Barrhaven Community Association was already planned at Larkin Parkin Saturday afternoon. Local caterer and volunteer Darrel Bartraw decided to add a breakfast in the morning after thinking residents would want a place to gather in the aftermath of the storm. “When the power went out I was sitting at home and was thinking people are going to want to have a hot breakfast,” Bartraw

said. “I thought as a caterer I have the equipment, and I have syrup and pancake mix as I always have in my house.” He posted about the event on social media, and had around 750 people come out for breakfast. That was followed by over 2,000 for lunch, and around 15,000 for dinner. Multiple grocery stores and restaurants also donated food — allowing the free meals to be served again on Sunday. Emily Price was among those who went to the breakfast with her family. She is grateful she had a place to go feed her two hungry boys. She was unclear what her plans would be for the next few days, yet said she spent the night playing games with her family. “Last night was tough at home because it was so dark,” she said. “We read some stories and called it an early night.” Mayor Jim Watson visited the park on Sunday afternoon, and gave the residents an update as to when their power may be restored. He said the outpouring community support has been inspiring to see, and said that’s what makes Ottawa such a great city. “It speaks volumes to the character of the people (and) that the people of this city are not bystanders,” Mayor Watson said on Sunday. “We see it here at Larkin House in Barrhaven, we see it at the 41 centres we have open and available for people too get showers, charge their phones, things like that.” Councillor Jan Harder said on Sunday afternoon that most of Barrhaven

Ford meets with hundreds in Barrhaven during post-storm power outage By Charlie Senack Just hours after announcing the activation of the Disaster Recovery Assistance for Ontarian’s Program, Premier Doug Ford and government officials met with residents who were impacted by the storm in Barrhaven. Just after the lunch hour, the Premier arrived at Larkin Park alongside Steve Clark, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, and Lisa MacLeod, the Minister of Community and Social Services. They came to reassure residents the government will do all they can to help. “We are here to reassure everyone in the region that’s been affected that we will share no expense, we will do whatever it takes to make sure we get people back in their feet,” Ford told the crowd of roughly 700 people. Barrhaven only received minor damage, primarily with trees that fell down. A tornado also ripped through parts of Greenbank Road, damaging the Merivale Hydro One station which left the entire community without power. Some of those who went to the park for free meals were

from the Arlington Woods area that saw a tornado rip through. Many of the well known pine trees are toppled, and houses split into two. For anyone who needs assistance after the storm, Minister Clark said the disaster and recovery program will be in place to help them in a time of need. Despite not yet knowing exactly what the program will cover, Clark said they implemented it quickly because in the past, governments did not activate it soon enough. “We want to say to the people that provide applications that we are going to do whatever we can to make sure those applications are dealt with on a timely bases,” he said. “People will be able to supplement their insurance on those essential items to get them back into their homes.” The Premier said it is still too soon to say what the cost of damage will be, but later on in the day Mayor Jim Watson said it is believed 51 homes are completely destroyed — most of them in the Dunrobin and Arlington Woods neighbourhoods. The purpose of Ford’s stop in Barrhaven was to see the outpouring of community

support. He said while touring the Dunrobin area earlier on in the day, organizers were telling him they had too many volunteers.

There will never be another Joe MacDonald


The tornado of kindness I remember the day I realized I had to come back home. I had been in Dallas, then Denver and then Seattle. I lived through multiple tornado warnings, a flash flood, the Columbine tragedy and an earthquake. The silver lining was that nothing like that ever happened here. Until Friday. I got home just as the power went out. A couple of kilometres north of us, the tornado hit Greenbank Road in the Arlington Woods area. The Merivale power station looked like, as Councillor Jan Harder described, “a bomb went off in it.” When the power went out last weekend, there was no phone or internet service, there was no TV, there was no electricity. Many places that were open could not accept debit or credit card payments, and many cash machines were either shut down or out of gas. Most of the area gas stations that were able to open ran out of fuel. On my street, I was experienced something unusually wonderful. Neighbours were out talking. Kids grabbed hockey sticks and had a massive game of street hockey in front of our house. It was the first time I had seen this since moving here in 2010. “It’s incredible,” one neighbour said to me. “Every kid is off their device and off their screen. They can’t play Fortnite. They actually have to do things that kids are supposed to do. I’m in no hurry to get power back. Or maybe we can get power, but Wifi can stay off.” Comments like that were made throughout the community. For us, it’s back to life as usual. Our fridge and freezer got a bit of an enema from the entire process, but we hadn’t done a good purge in a couple of years so it’s all good. We have power and internet and TV, and even Wifi. The kids Usain Bolted to their X-Boxes to get their Fort Nite fixes. For others in the area, though, it’s not all back to normal. Some of the families who received their assistance cheques had just purchased food, which they had to throw out. This will put pressure on the Barrhaven Food Cupboard. In Arlington Woods and Dunrobin, things aren’t even close to back to normal. Homes were destroyed, and lives have been turned upside down. But as bad as things are, I am fully confident that things will get back to normal for everyone. This storm brought out the best in the people of Barrhaven, and the people of Barrhaven will make sure families in need are looked after. That’s what we do.

It’s always sad when a friend dies. You wonder ‘why him?’ or ‘why her?’ Why is fate so cold and cruel and heartless? Next week, it will be 25 years since Sudbury Police Constable Joe MacDonald was killed on duty. Joe was a teammate of mine with the Carleton Ravens football team in the 1980s. He was a great offensive tackle and a great friend. He wasn’t just my friend. He was everyone’s friend. He was the life of the locker room. He was the guy you could count on no matter what. He defined what a “character guy” was. When we won our league championship in 1985, we slugged it out on the ground. We did it behind Joe. Joe had a smile and a playful nickname for everyone. He always had a joke or a funny comment that kept us all in stitches. At Oliver’s on Saturday nights, everyone wanted to sit with Joe and “Sweet Pea”. That was Nancy. No guy I knew at that age loved a girl like Joe loved his Sweet Pea. If someone went to take their helmet off after practice and their sweaty hair was glued to their helmet with toothpaste, Joe had been to your locker earlier that day. If you were sweating while running sprints and all you could smell was perfume, Joe had been to your locker. If you were in horrible discomfort because someone had put heat balm in your jockstrap… Joe. But on the night of October 6, 1993, things went horribly, horribly wrong. “Everyone loved Joe,” said Rolly Campbell, now an Ottawa police officer who ran a Sudbury Police community buddy program with Joe. A call came in that night that two males in a brown Cutlass were heading into Sudbury for a drug deal and one was armed. They did not broadcast the info over the scanner, as many of the criminals had police scanners. Joe came on duty on the midnight shift, and did not know about the car. At about 2 a.m., Joe, who was riding alone, was to meet two other police cars at Tim’s for a coffee. The other officers needed to go to the ATM to get cash, so Joe, with a few minutes to kill, decided to do a quick tour. “That’s the kind of cop he was,” said Rolly. Joe pulled over a couple of shady looking characters in a brown cutlass and as he approached the car, he had no idea what he was walking into. Joe was walking back to his car when suddenly, a fight broke out. There were no sidewalks, and Joe went down in the steep, slippery ditch and broke his leg. According

to Rolly, one of the men, Clinton Suzack, pulled out a gun and began to pistol whip Joe. Fighting for his life, Joe pulled out his .38 and took a shot at Suzack, injuring him. Joe’s .38 was empty, but Suzack had a semiautomatic that was not empty. Peter Pennett, according to Rolly, shot Joe in the back of the head. Pennett loaded FROM THE Suzack into the Cutlass and they fled. They were caught by Constables Dennis Tarnopolsky and Geordie Fisher. Fisher, a martial arts expert, ran by Jeff Morris down Pennett through a wooded area and stream. Pennett tried to disarm him, but Fisher won the battle and hauled him in. “It bothers me,” said Rolly. “These two guys ended up at a Club Fed somewhere on the west coast. They play golf, they have barbecues, they even have homemade alcohol.” As it is the 25th anniversary of Joe’s death, the 25-year life sentences without parole for these two men is also approaching. “Bob Rae was Premier then and police officers had .38s while the criminals had semiautomatics,” Rolly said. “Yet, Bob Rae’s body guards had semi-automatics.” Nancy, who had married Joe and had two small children with him, lobbied intensely to arm Ontario’s police officers with better weapons. Because of her, Ontario’s cops have better guns. But the price to pay for the upgrade is sickening. “I still think about him,” said Rolly. “He was such a special guy. It was such a tragic loss for his family and friends, and it was such a tragic loss for the community. Joe was the ultimate policeman. If the police was made up of all Joe MacDonalds, crime would be next to nothing.” My memories of Joe still make me laugh out loud. I’ll never forget Joe telling us the story of how he worked at Ponderosa steak house in Sudbury, and how his math teacher came in to order steak. He and his friend literally played soccer with the steak on the floor before putting it on the grill. We listened in awe, as we all fantasized doing something like that to a teacher we had had run-ins with. I still remember watching the news on TV when I found out about Joe’s death. I was stunned. We all were. Joe was a gentle giant in Sudbury, involved in the community, loved by everyone. In Sudbury, the Joe Mac Youth Football Program is named after him. Sometimes I smile when I wonder if they have football in Heaven. Jesus, if Joe’s on your team, you better doublecheck your helmet and jockstrap before you put them on.

Ashleigh Pomerant, a Grade 10 student at Longfields-Davidson Heights, organized a student walkout over the sex-ed curriculum rollback on Friday, Sept. 21, 2018. The walkout included hundreds of students from LDHSS and they were joined by dozens more from Saint Mother Teresa. Mike Carroccetto photo

Barrhaven students walk out to protest sex education changes By Charlie Senack

Students from Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School and St. Mother Teresa High School joined more than 93 schools in a province wide walkout that took place on September 21. As the bell rang for most students’ third period class, an estimated 38,000 Ontario high school students walked out of class in protest of the

Ford government’s decision to go back to the 1998 physical health and safety curriculum, most commonly known as sex ed. Grade 10 student Ashleigh Pomerant was the main organizer for the walkout at Longfields. She estimates 150-200 students participated, and said students from neighboring St. Mother Teresa also joined in. She would like to see the current 2015 curriculum stay

in place for at least a few years — until it may have to be changed again to resonate with modern day society. “Who knows if in a few years it will need to change again, but for now I think that the (content) they’re talking about is perfect,” she said. “I think it’s really age appropriate and teaches kids about stuff at an age before they are going to start looking at it online.”

Students at Longfields say the walkout was welcomed by most members of faculty, and some even encouraged the high schoolers to walk out. The school board said in a statement that normal disciplinary measures would be in place, but Pomerant says the principal reassured them they would only be marked as absent. Grade 11 student Bailey O’Brien feels it’s important to keep the 2015 curriculum because it touches on issues like consent and cyber bullying. She agrees the modern

day curriculum is not perfect, but feels it’s better than traveling back in time. “Kids who are not comfortable talking with their parents need to know what consent is, what is going on with the LGBTQ+ community, and everything like that,” she said. Jennifer Goodman, also a grade 11 student, knows multiple people who are LGBTQ+, and says her heart breaks that their community will no longer be talked about in the classroom. She said her message to Premier

Ford is to listen to the youth, not just the adults. “His decision was based off of adults votes, and what parents have had the vote to say,” Goodman said. “We really need to think of what the kids need and what they should be educated about.” The walkout movement originated at Nepean High School, and travelled through the public board into other schools in the community. While no other protests are planned at this time, a petition is circulating online.

liation to a given proper hearing h on my patients’ n er everything av HEARING FREEDOM heis employer th what’s best for You! n by satisfied cus By Jeff Morris It was a day of reflection last Tuesday as the victims were remembered on the fifth anniversary of the VIA Rail/OC Transpo crash in Barrhaven. Family members gathered at the memorial to the six victims in the morning, marking the exact moment that the westbound train collided with the OC Transpo Route 76 Double Decker bus. Throughout the day, hundreds stopped by the memorial to pay their respects. Some were friends, others were passengers on the bus who suffered minor injuries on the crash, while others were simply there out of love and support for their community.

“Even though it has been five years, it is so fresh in everyone’s memories,” said Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder. “None of us will ever forget that day. It changed Barrhaven. It changed all of us. We became a more compassionate community. That’s why we still see hockey sticks here at people’s front doors to support Humboldt months later. We went through it as a community. We get it.” It seemed like a routine morning. The warm sun splashed on the faces of those who drove to the Fallowfield Park and Ride, just as they did every morning. It seemed like a routine part of a routine day. But then, a northbound bus going too fast, driven

Keeping you connected with everything and everyone, your ability to hear is priceless. Unfortunately, one in ten of us suffer from hearing loss. If ignored, 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 Freedom your freedom of choice is held paramount. Locally owned, grown and operated, Hearing Freedom 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

Most weren’t paying attention, as they were on their devices, reading a newspaper, or settling in for their regular commute. Hundreds of people saw the collision. Thousands heard it. OC Transpo driver Dave Woodard, 45, was among those killed in the crash. Also killed that day were Michael Bleakney, 57; Connor Boyd, 21; Kyle Nash, 21; Karen Krzyzewski, 53; and Rob More, 35. Another 37 passengers were injured. They were sent to the Queensway Carleton

Hospital, the Ottawa Civic Hospital, or the Montfort Hospital, depending on the types and se-

verities of the injuries. While Woodroffe Avenue remained closed to traffic, an emergency

centre was set up at the Nepean Sportsplex.

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. Hearing Freedom offers a rarely found grass-roots program of care. 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.

munity? But it did. Everyone in Barrhaven at the time knows where they were and who they were with when they heard the news about the crash. “When 9-11 happened, I remember listening to Lowell Green,” Harder said. “It was the same feeling I had when I heard about this crash. I just thought, ‘Oh my God, this is for real.’ I thought it can’t be true.” In the days, weeks and months following the crash, Harder got to know the families of the victims. She went to every funeral, along with Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod and Councillor Diane Deans. Like all of us, however, Harder struggled with the tragedy. “I remember talking to Kent Kirkpatrick, who was the city manager at the time,” she said. “I remember telling him, ‘I don’t know what I can do to help these people.’ It was a difficult time.” Toying with Harder’s emotions was the fact that the following day, one of her grandchildren was born. “I felt too guilty to be happy,” Harder said. “I struggled with

Former co-workers of Michael Bleakney, one of six killed in the crash, chat with each other inside the memorial park before taking a celebratory drink of The Classic Laddie Scottish Whisky in memory of their late friend, as they do each year on Sept. 18. “He was a genius,” said his former boss, Peter Garabek, one of the men visiting the memorial. “He was very thoughtful, and very professional. I really enjoyed working with him.” Garabek retired a few years before the crash happened and was leaving for a vacation with his wife when the accident happened. “The day he was killed we heard there had been a big accident at Fallowfield Station, but we were on our way to Europe” he recalled. “We didn’t know he had been killed until three weeks later when I got the phone calls and the recordings on my machine.” Mike Carroccetto photo

that for quite a while.” Harder met with the families of the crash victims on multiple occasions. She also met with Mayor Jim Watson a number of times after the accident. “That was when I really got to understand Jan Harder and know how much Barrhaven and the people of the community meant to her,” Watson said to the Independent last year. “It brought out the best in her as a councillor, and as a person.” One of the results of the meetings was the memorial in the northeast corner of the Fallowfield Station and Park and Ride. The memorial includes a bench representing each of the victims. Each bench includes



something personal about each of the victims. Kyle Nash’s bench even includes a QR code that you can use to learn more about him. “It’s a great place to remember them,” Harder said. “It’s a spiritual place. I go there often.” While the tragedy was a challenge for Harder emotionally, it has also brought challenges politically. In the aftermath of the investigation into the crash, the Transportation Safety Board recommended that all Barrhaven crossings be made multi-grade. The Greenbank Road crossing is now multi-grade, and the next crossing to be worked on will be the Strandherd-Mc-

Kenna Casey crossing. Harder said that the cost of the crossings will be in the ballpark of a half billion dollars. She said the money has to come from the government, as VIA will not be contributing. “We can’t do it all at once, but is it important? Absolutely,” Harder said. “We’ll be ready to move forward on them when the funds become available.” Harder said the land around the Strandherd-McKenna Casey crossing “is like Jell-O and it will be a difficult task.” She also said that one of the biggest challenges is to make every part of the grading plan fit within the city’s transportation master plan.

The IndependentNEWS Senior woman files complaint with police over tactics used by Wess

A Barrhaven senior citizen has filed a complaint with the Ottawa Police Service against Ward 3 council candidate Hadi Wess for alleging that he used harassment and intimidation tactics while campaigning at her front door. The 67-year-old woman, who agreed to be interviewed only if granted anonymity, contacted the police Sunday, Sept. 15 over the incident, which happened days earlier. She said that she could not contact police earlier because of the power outage in Barrhaven due to Friday’s tornado. The Ottawa Police Service media relations department confirmed details of the complaint, and said the next step of the complaint would that it would be reviewed by investigators. In her report, the woman alleges that the incident happened after the candi-


“He tried to gain access to my home and he wasn’t going to leave” date knocked on her door. “After he knocked, he held up his brochure,” she said. “I was surprised he was at my door step, because I have a Jan Harder sign up in front of my house. I asked him if he saw my sign, but he said he had the right to be at my door step to talk about his platform. I told him he had the right to get off my property.” The woman alleges that she tried to close her door, but that Wess stuck his foot in her door, preventing her from closing it. She alleges that at that point, Wess called her a racist.


Hadi Wess is a candidate for Ward 3 Barrhaven in the upcoming municipal election.

“He tried to gain access to my home and he wasn’t going to leave,” she alleged. “He was trying to intimidate me based on my age. He knew nobody else was in the house except for my dogs.” When contacted, Wess was unaware of the complaint. “The Barrhaven Independent’s request for comment is the first instance of me learning about a constituent who has expressed any dissatisfaction with our campaign,” he said in an email. “I strive for and will continue to run a campaign that is filled with positive energy, and which engages in open, mutual, and respectful dialogue with constituents, always with a view to better represent the community in which I live.” No charges have been laid, and nothing has been proven in court.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY MacLeod hosts roundtable discussion for local small business owners

Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod invited a number of small business owners from Nepean to a round table session Sept. 15 with AuroraOak Ridge-Richmond Hill MPP Michael Parsa to discuss the challenges they are facing. Predictably, the business owners in the room had many of the same issues. Parsa said that Bill 148, which saw minimum wage increased dramatically, has destroyed many small businesses across the province. While some members of the previous Liberal Government pointed the finger at businesses for not being prepared for something they knew was coming, businesses had to try to restructure, not prepare. Parsa also commented that high hydro prices have also been a burden for Ontario small businesses. In addition to the massive minimum wage hike that employers had to prepare for, the thing that is really crippling has been the number of paid sick days that employees are taking. One business owner said that the number of sick days taken per month by his small staff have gone from two to 11 per month. “No business owners have a complaint with their employees making more money,” Parsa said. “The problem for a lot of businesses is all of the other stuff that went with the wage hike.” For SunTech’s Bob Mitchell, however, the problem has been actually getting people to do the work. SunTech has been hammered hard by the red tape involved in hiring migrant workers. In fact, Parsa pointed out that there are 380,000 pieces of legislation for employment in Ontario. The next highest is BC with less

than 200,000. Mitchell said that the process in hiring migrant workers is time consuming and difficult. When he loses a worker, it could take months to get through the red tape to hire a replacement worker. To complicate matters, local residents and Canadians won’t do the work. “I can no longer function with a Canadian workforce,” he said matter-of-factly. “We are trying to hire Canadians, but Canadians will not do the job.” It caused the entire room to ask why. Mitchell suggested that the education system is to blame. “We’re educating kids to think they are sacred,” he said. “No one wants to do the work.” One of the challenges of each new government is to clean up the mess of the old one. The Liberals had to do that when they took over from the Conservatives, and the Conservatives are doing that now after taking over from the Liberals. While the Liberals were neck deep in high-profile scandals, many overlooked the vice they were using to squeeze the temples of small business owners. Parsa said that business with fewer than 100 employees make up 98 per cent of the jobs in Ontario. In addition, 55 per cent of Ontarians work for companies with five or fewer employees. “Small business is the backbone of the Ontario economy,” he said. “But things like Bill 148 have pitted employees against employers.” Among the issues raised regarding challenges facing local small businesses locally is the unfair advantage Quebec tradesmen have working in Ontario. “When I drove through

my neighbourhood in Chapman Mills this summer, all I saw was a long line of trucks from Quebec parked along the sides of roads, and they were all doing roofs,” said Barrhaven Independent editor and publisher Jeff Morris. “For the guys that do roofs, or driveway repairs or landscaping, the playing field is unfair. Small businesses from Quebec can come here and undercut these guys because they are paying Quebec wages, but Quebec won’t allow Ontario businesses to go over there to do work. If the provincial government wanted to anything to help Ontario small businesses, we would have the same restrictions against Quebec trades people coming here as they do against our workers and small business people.” Both Parsa and MacLeod called the session a success, adding that meeting with small business owners is an important step in addressing the problems they are facing. “You are going to be heard, and we will be discussing each of the concerns and challenges brought up

Aurora-Oak Ridge-Richmond Hill MPP Michael Parsa, right, address local small business owners at the roundtable discussion hosted by Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod, left. today,” Parsa said. Parsa added that further planned increases to minimum wage in Ontario will be slowed down and delayed so that employers “have a chance to catch up.”

Barrhaven represented on both teams in this weekend’s 50th Panda Game

This weekend’s 50th Panda Game will have a lot of local flavour. Both the Carleton Ravens and Ottawa Gee Gees have Barrhaven players who played youth football with the Nepean Redskins/Eagles program. Carleton wide receiver Phil Iloki graduated from the Redskins and is in his fourth year with the Ravens. Iloki, who scored a dramatic touchdown late in the fourth quarter in last year’s Panda Game, is currently 12th among OUA receivers with 19 catches for 322 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Michael Arruda, who began his football career with the Nepean Redskins, has

passed for 1,446 yards and 10 touchdowns in five games this year. Arruda ran for a touchdown in double-overtime to give the Ravens a Panda Game win. For the Gee Gees, linebackers James Peter and Max Charbonneau, both graduates of the Redskins/Eagles program, will be in the line-up, while Harrison Tallyhoe, who played with the Redskins and then for Mother Teresa High School, will see duty at wide receiver. The Gee Gees have a 32-17 edge all-time over Carleton in the previous 49 Panda Games, but the Ravens have won four straight. Kick-off at TD Place Carleton receiver Phil Iloki is 12th in the OUA in receiving. Mike Carroccetto photo Stadium is 1 p.m. Saturday.

Tornado and power outage gives challenges to Humane Society The Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) on West Hunt Club Road experienced a 48-hour power outage and sustained minor damage to its shelter, as a result of last Friday’s tornados. “When the shelter lost power, we immediately went into emergency response mode,” said Bruce Roney, OHS President and CEO. “All animals, visiting public, OHS volunteers

and staff were gathered indoors to ride out the storm, and we are happy to report no one was hurt,” added Roney. The OHS had more than 300 animals in its care on Friday when the storm hit. Over the weekend, the shelter was closed to the public, with the exception of Admissions and Claiming. Devoted animal care attendants remained onsite,

working additional hours to care for the animals in partial darkness. The shelter was operating by way of an emergency back-up generator, which had to be refuelled twice to sustain the shelter’s essential needs such as lights, refrigeration of medical supplies and lifesaving medical equipment. Because the OHS was not operating at full power,

staff were unable to operate the washers and dryers, and quickly ran out of clean towels and blankets for the animals. Other supplies that could not be sterilized depleted quickly. “While the outage luckily had no effect on the animal’s well-being, the cost of making the shelter functional again will top several thousand dollars and we are reaching out to our com-

munity members for clean towels or blankets, and financial donations,” said Roney. Donations can be made at ottawahumane.ca/tornado. Staff worked diligently to care for homeless animals under emergency lighting at the Ottawa Humane Society north of Barrhaven. Call to book a tour: 613-821-2233
