Sewing needle found in 11-year-old’s Halloween chocolate bar of tampered Halloween candy. They encourage parents to inspect their child’s candy stash, and if anything suspicious is located, to contact police. Two years ago, Ottawa Police issued a statement about a similar experience in the Meadowbrook area, but that investigation determined the girl placed the needles in her own candy, and said the investigation determined it was “unfounded”. Vidal also has a file open with Nestle, the company which makes Aero chocolate bars, and they are also investigating. Shortly after the needle was initially found, Vidals wife knocked on other doors in the court where they live to encourage other parents to inspect their children’s Halloween candy. So far, no other needles have been found inside Halloween candy in Ottawa.

A local real estate agent is concerned after a sewing needle was found inside his 11-year-old son’s Halloween chocolate bar. Miguel Vidal says his family was just finishing up dinner on November 1 when his two sons went to get their Halloween candy fix. Eleven-year-old Noah — the middle child of three — grabbed an Aero chocolate bar, snapped it in two, and saw a sharp and pointy object punctured through the middle of it. “He snapped it in the middle and then he looked at me and said ‘Dad, what is this?’,” Vidal said in a phone interview with the Barrhaven Independent on Friday. “As I got in closer, I noticed it was a sewing needle.” Vidal quickly called his neighbor who is a police officer, who told him to

report the incident to Ottawa Police right away. They asked his wife a few questions, took the chocolate bar and its wrapper, and then left. While police would not confirm the location where the incident took place, Vidal said his family went trick or treating in old Barrhaven in the area around Sherway Drive and Vanessa Terrace in Barrhaven. There were no signs of the needle being punctured through the chocolate bar wrapper, but Vidal said he has heard of ways you can glue the seal shut to make it look like it was not tampered with. He said he has seen social media posts circulating of sewing needles being found in other Nestle chocolate bars — one in Carleton Place and another near Toronto. Ottawa Police confirm they are investigating, and that as of Friday they only received the one report

One Hundredth Anniversary of the end of World War 1 - November 11, 1918

The military history of Canada during World War I began on August 4, 1914, when Britain entered the First World War (1914–1918) by declaring war on Germany. The British declaration of war automatically brought Canada into the war, because of Canada’s legal status as subservient to Britain.[1] However, the Canadian government had the freedom to determine the country’s level of involvement in the war. On August 5, 1914, the Governor General declared a war between Canada and Germany. The Militia was not mobilized and instead an independent Canadian Expeditionary Force was raised. Canadians of British des-

cent, the majority, gave widespread support arguing that Canadians had a duty to fight on behalf of their Motherland. Indeed, Sir Wilfred Laurier, although French-Canadian, spoke for the majority of English-Canadians when he proclaimed: “It is our duty to let Great Britain know and to let the friends and foes of Great Britain know that there is in Canada but one mind and one heart and that all Canadians

Three men were arrested after more than three kilograms of cocaine were seized in two drug raids, one of which was in Barrhaven. According to the Ottawa Police Service, an investigation by the guns and gangs unit and surveillance team began in early October, resulting for

the arrest warrants for a home on Masonbrook Street, near Woodroffe Ave. and Longfields Drive in Barrhaven. There was also a search on Hinchey Avenue, in the Mechanicsville-Hintonburg area of Ottawa. Police seized approximately 3.5 kg in cocaine and about

are behind the Mother Country.” Prime Minister Robert Borden offered assistance to Great Britain, which was quickly accepted. Canada’s sacrifices and contributions to the war changed its history and enabled it to become more independent, For the first time in its history, Canadian forces fought as a distinct unit, first under a British commander and then under a Canadianborn commander. The highpoints of Canadian military achievement during the First World War came during the Somme, Vimy, and Passchendaele battles and what later became known as “Canada’s Hundred Days”. Canada’s total casualties stood at the

end of the war at 67,000 killed and 173,000 wounded, out of an expeditionary force of 620,000 people mobilized and 39% of mobilized were casualties. Try and attend a November 11th Remembrance Day ceremony; it’s important that you do; encourage the young people to attend and take the children; they need to know the significance of November 11th. As for me, I’m happy to be a Canadian whose forces saved freedom for me to be a kid and run and play, a long time ago for some of us but allows me to see another happy day! Best Advice: Remember to Remember!

The city that’s still a community

As much as Barrhaven is growing, the more it is staying the same. While the community had a population of between 15-20,000 people back in the day when we launched the Barrhaven Independent, we now have a population of close to 90,000. With those numbers, we could be our own city. But no matter how big of a city we are becoming, Barrhaven is still a community in every sense of the word. The two best examples of this feeling of community will happen in the upcoming week. On Sunday, many residents will gather at the Cenoptaph at John McCrae Secondary School in Barrhaven, beside the Walter Baker Centre, for a special Remembrance Day service. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, marking the end of the First World War. It was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month that the Great War finally came to an end. The Barrhaven Legion lobbied hard and worked with the office of former MP Pierre Poilievre and with Councillor Jan Harder, among others, to ensure that Barrhaven has a proper place to pay tribute to fallen soldiers. Having it in front of John McCrae Secondary School – McCrae was the former military soldier and medic who was the author of the poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’ – is perfectly fitting. The following week, Barrhaven will host its annual Santa Claus Parade. Through the guidance and leadership of a few business people and the Barrhaven BIA, the Santa Claus Parade has become the second largest Santa Claus parade in the city – next to Ottawa’s downtown parade – and one of the largest in the province. About 25,000 people are expected to attend this year’s parade along Strandherd Road, stretching from Woodroffe to Greenbank. The turnout for the parade acts as a metaphor for the type of community Barrhaven is. Traditionally, as community grows, community events like this draw fewer and fewer people. We don’t really know why. But Barrhaven bucks that trend. We are a community that gets out and rallies around people and events. That’s why we have the best Santa Claus Parade, and that’s why we have the best Canada Day. And that’s also why there was such a strong bonding in the community in September in the aftermath of the tornadoes that knocked out our power for three days. Only in Barrhaven can our municipal leaders turn a power outage crisis into a celebration and festival of community spirit at Larkin Park. As much as we enjoy these events, please remember to support the Barrhaven Food Cupboard during the parade. The tornadoes hit the Food Cupboard hard, as the timing of the outage hit homes just days after support cheques from the government were issued. Many families had just stocked their fridges and freezers with food, and much of that food was lost during the power outage.

He finally has his place in the Hall

Canada’s past is full of heroes. Sure, we have our superstars. Bobby Orr and Gordie How and Wayne Gretzky. Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid. Celine Dion and Bryan Adams and Michael Buble. Drake. But we are a nation more known by its unsung heroes. We are thinking of those heroes this week as we pay our respects to those who sacrificed their lives for ours, especially on the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. While hero is a word that I don’t think belongs when you discuss sports or professional athletes, every now and then the word might apply. For Willie O’Ree, who finally gets his long-overdue induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame this week, hero is an understatement. On January 18, 1958, Willie became the first black player in the NHL. He is often referred to as the ‘Jackie Robinson of hockey.’ But while Robinson was one of the best players the game had ever seen, O’Ree’s career was more fitting for a Canadian hero. Two games played in his first NHL season, and 43 games and four goals in his second and final season. After that, it was two years with the Hull-Ottawa Canadiens before an 18-year career as a minor league pro in the US. Twenty years ago, I got the chance to talk to O’Ree and meet him. For a couple of years I like to think we were friends. I doubt that he remembers me now, but I remember every time I talked to or met him, including the first time I called him and he answered the phone. “Hello, this is Willie O’Ree.” I staggered and stumbled through introducing myself to Willie O’Ree. I told him that I was the NHL brand manager at Pinnacle, a sports card company based in Dallas. “I’m not sure if you aware or not, sir, but there has never been a hockey card made of you,” I told him. “We would like to include you in our next set of NHL hockey cards.” “Is that right?” he said. “I had no idea I never had a card. I would love to have an NHL hockey card.” Butterflies filled my stomach. Over the next few years, I met with him a few times, and I chatted with him a few more times. He was humble, sincere and as genuine as a hero should be. “I didn’t think of it as a big deal at the time, and I certainly didn’t see myself as the Jackie Robinson of Hockey,” said O’Ree, who grew up in Fredericton, New Brunswick. “I just remember how thrilled I was to be called up to get to play in the NHL.” The fact that O’Ree made it to the NHL is

one of the all-time against-all-odds stories in Canadian history. In a junior hockey game in Guelph, O’Ree was hit in the face with a puck and was blinded in one eye. “I kept that a secret throughout my career,” he said. “I was a left shot and a left winger, and I lost sight in my right eye. It put me at a big disadvantage, but I just had to work through FROM THE it.” O’Ree was also quick to point out that he was not the best black hockey player of his era. “There was a guy by Jeff Morris named Herb Carnagie,” he said as we sat down at a little table at an NHL event. “He was already a legend by the time I came around. He played for the Quebec Aces with Jean Beliveau in the Quebec Senior League, and a lot of guys who played against him said that he was just as good as Beliveau. Unfortunately, he never got the chance to play in the NHL.” O’Ree downplayed some of the racial taunts and slurs that he faced. “I just let it all go in one ear and out the other,” he said. “There were some incidents. But in all honesty, it was a lot worse playing in the minors in some of the smaller cities. I never let it get to me.” He paused for a moment, and asked me where I was from. “A little town on the border in Eastern Ontario,” I said. “Prescott.” Willie O’Ree’s eyes lit up. “Prescott,” he said with a smile. “That’s where Leo Boivin is from. Do you know him?” “Yes sir, I do.” “You know, I will tell you about Leo,” he said. “We were playing Montreal. It was New Year’s Day. Leo had the puck and I was breaking down the left wing. He fed me this perfect, rink wide pass, that ended up right on my stick. It was a great pass. I went in on Charlie Hodge, and I put the puck under his glove hand. It was my first NHL goal.” Willie O’Ree smiled, remembering the moment. He didn’t mention that it was the first NHL goal ever scored by a black player. He also left out the part about the standing ovation that lasted several minutes. “Leo played for the Inkerman Rockets when they were really good,” he said. “I wonder if he ever played against Herb Carnegie?” In my office, I have an autographed copy of that Wiollie O’Ree card. Willie’s place in history, however, is not on my desk. It is in the Hockey Hall of Fame. And finally, he is where he belongs.

Community Police Message

Over the past few weeks we saw an increase in day time break and enters in the Barrhaven area. Break and Enter is the offence committed when any person unlawfully enters any place with the intent of committing a criminal offence therein. There is no set time that a break-in is more likely to occur. There are suspects who only commit breakins at night, while others operate during the day. The incidents last week were during the day. Report suspicious people and vehicles to 613-236-1222. Calling and leaving a voice mail to report the suspicious per-

son is too late. Ensure when posting opinions on social media that the facts are correct. Only posting on social media and not reporting to the police service allows gabs in the investigation. Again, ensure doors and windows are locked and secure during the day. Ensure garage doors are locked and the door leading in to the house is locked. Constable Sherry Jordan Ottawa Police Service’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) will focus on red light running and stop sign violations the month of November.

RemembRance ceRemonieS The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend any of the Remembrance Ceremonies listed below.

Royal Canadian Legion Branch 641 Barrhaven – 2018 Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Events The Poppy has been widely recognized as a symbol of Remembrance since it was first adopted in 1921. By wearing the Poppy, we demonstrate our gratitude to those who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy. Legion Remembrance programs commemorate the men and women who died in the military service of Canada during war and peace. The 2018 Poppy Campaign commences October 26 and ends on November 10. It is through the generosity of the community that Branch 641 is able to provide this kind of support. Legion and Cadet volunteers will be distributing poppies during the Campaign period at several local locations, including Ross’ Independent, Sobeys, Walmart, Metro, Loblaws and Costco. We thank you for your continued support. Friday, November 9, 9:45 a.m. - Barrhaven Manor Friday, November 9, 11 a.m. - The Court at Barrhaven Friday, November 9, 1:30 p.m. - Longfields Manor Friday, November 9, 2:45 p.m. - V!VA Barrhaven Friday, November 9, 4 p.m. - Prince of Wales Manor Saturday, November 10, 10:15 a.m. - Carleton Lodge

POPPY CAMPAIGN It is important to remember that the basic purpose of funds raised during the Poppy Campaign is to enable Branches of the Royal Canadian Legion to provide immediate assistance to ex-servicemen and women in need. This includes providing food, shelter and medical attention for them or their families when necessary. Poppy funds also allow the Legion to “give back” to the local community in the form of bursaries to local schools, support of army and navy cadet corps, donations to local hospitals and other vital support programs. During the past year, Branch 641 donated $60,000 to community organizations including the Homeless Veterans Program, Military Family Resource Centre, Perley Rideau Veterans Health Care Centre, Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, the Queensway Carleton Acute Care for the Elderly, three cadet corps, students’ bursaries, as well, monetary prizes for poster and literary contests for youth attending local schools. For more information about the Barrhaven Legion, please go to our website, www.rcl641.ca, our Facebook page “Barrhaven Legion 641” or call us at 613843-8691.

The Branch will be holding a Remembrance Dinner on Saturday, November 4. All are welcome to join in honouring our military, past, present and future, at this evening of recognition and reflection. The cost of the Roast Beef Dinner is $35 for Members and $40 for Non-members. Veterans, their spouses, including widows/widowers, and caretakers accompanying the Veterans may attend for $10 each.

Proudly serving Manotick & surrounding area since 1964!

Why the poppy? The poppy has stood as the official symbol of Canada’s Remembrance Day since 1921, a visual reminder of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for war. Some may wonder why this small flower is used to represent the fallen s oldier. Poppies and fallen soldiers have a long history together. The origins of the flower can be traced back to the Napoleonic wars in France. During these times of unrest and battle, many soldiers went on to final resting places in graves in Flanders, France. Ensuing literature describing how poppies grew so thickly and vibrantly over these graves, in soil

that once could not produce much vegetation. Years later, a soldier would be instrumental in bringing the symbol of the poppy to the hearts and minds of Canadians. When John McCrae served in World War I as a Lieutenant-Colonel, he was stationed near Ypres, Belgium, the area traditionally called Flanders. McCrae observed how poppies grew so well among the makeshift graves of the soldiers, which were marked by wooden crosses. When McCrae lost a fellow soldier and close friend, he penned a poem called “In Flanders Fields” and portrayed the picture of war and

the poppy flower visual. To this day McCrae’s poem remains among the most memorable war poems ever written. It also paved the way for the poppy flower to be one of the most recognized symbols of wartime remembrance. Thousands of poppies are placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and Remembrance Day participants wear poppies on their lapels.

Lest We Forget


Why November 11?

Remembrance Day in Canada is a day to commemorate members of the armed forces. Remembrance Day is observed each year on November 11 because that marks the official end of World War I in 1918. On that day, the Germans officially signed the armistice, an agreement that officially put an end to the fighting in WWI. That’s one reason why Remembrance Day is often referred to as Armistice Day. Though the day has a significant connection to World War I, it also honours the men and women who fought for Canada in World War II, the Korean War and those who continue to serve in the military. Over the years, more than 1.5 million Canadians have fought for their country and to defend the rights and freedoms of non-Canadians as well. Among the Remembrance Day traditions is the wearing of poppies, which are worn as the symbol of remembrance and a reminder of the blood-red flower that grows on the former battlefields of France and Belgium.

In Flanders Fields In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. ‘In Flander’s Fields’ was written by a Canadian, John McCrae, a doctor and teacher who served in both the South African War and the First World War. He died from pneumonia on January 28, 1918.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Artists of Stonebridge will keep painting the town long after art show

Barrhaven artist Dhanashri Baput displays her works of florals and streams. Artists of Stonebridge held their 9th Annual Art Show & Sale, Saturday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 4th, at the Stonebridge Golf Club, 68 Hawktree Ridge, Nepean. In addition to a wide variety of art work from AOS members, a special exhibit, The Nepean Collection, will be featured. Every artist finds inspiration in different ways. Some are inspired by their travels, others by colours or light, and still others by the many aspects of nature. During 2018, twenty three AOS artists chose to draw their inspiration from closer to home - their own community of Nepean. The Nepean Collection is a sampling of Nepean landscapes, architecture, community spaces and more, as interpreted by the Artists of

Stonebridge. In addition to its unveiling at the “Paint the Town” Art Show and Sale, The Nepean Collection will also be on exhibit at the Minto Recreation Complex on Cambrian Road from December 5th to February 6th, and will then move to the Barrhaven Vietnamese Restaurant on Strandherd Drive. As well as being the inhouse artists at the Minto Recreation Complex, the AOS have eight other venues where art is displayed on a rotational basis. These include the offices of Mr. Chandra Arya, MP, Councillors Jan Harder’s and Michael Qaqish’s City Hall and Constituency offices, the Barrhaven Vietnamese Restaurant and the Royal Bank on Strandherd. The generosity of these institutions is

much appreciated. Artists of Stonebridge also accepted donations to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (CGDB) at the 2018 “Paint the Town” Art Show & Sale. CGDB is a national, non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1984 to provide Canadians with greater mobility and independence through the use of professionally bred, raised and trained dogs. The organization relies solely on public support and funding. Traditionally, art is enjoyed by the sighted, but by choosing CGDB as our charity we can extend the value of our artists’ beautiful creations to benefit the lives of the visually impaired.

Sherry Beckstead was one of many Barrhaven artists exhibiting at the Artists of Stonebridge Paint the Town Art Show and Sale. Artists of Stonebridge (AOS) is a non-profit organization formed in 2010 by a small group of visual artists from Barrhaven. Over the years membership has grown to include 40 artists from across Canada and around the world. This diverse group works in a full spectrum of disciplines - from oil to acrylic, from watercolour to mixed media. The AOS vision is to increase the awareness and appreciation of original art as well as to provide the artists with opportunities to exhibit their art. The group also reaches out to the community by sharing their talents through workshops and fundraising for local charities.

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Putting a price on pollution provides incentive for climate action By Chandra Arya Nepean MP

Our government has a plan to protect the environment and grow the economy, and it’s working. Our emissions are decreasing and our economy is booming. Pricing carbon reduces pollution at the lowest cost to businesses and consumers. Around the world, businesses, governments and experts agree that carbon pricing is the cheapest and most efficient way to cut carbon pollution. A well-designed price on carbon pollution provides an

incentive for climate action and clean innovation while protecting competitiveness. Carbon pricing is efficient and cost effective because it allows businesses and households to decide for themselves how best to reduce pollution – and will often save money in the process. With the new Price on Pollution tactic, every family of four in Ontario will get a Climate Action Incentive of $307. Carbon pricing will make a significant contribution towards meeting Canada’s greenhouse gas reduction target. A price on carbon could

cut carbon pollution across Canada by 80 to 90 million tonnes in 2022, once all provinces and territories have systems that meet the federal standard. This is equivalent to taking 23-26 million cars off the road for a year or shutting down 20-23 coal-fired power plants for a year. Countries all over the world are pricing pollution – California, the European Union, China. Their realworld experience confirms that putting a price on pollution works. It spurs clean growth, supports jobs for the middle class, and cuts the pollution causing climate

Some suite Christmas gifts! Kelsey Underwood, who is the hostess for the Bobby Ryan CHEO suite at Ottawa Senators games, and Carol Harper, Director of Premium Services at Canadian Tire Centre, get some help from Aramark employee Julie Fletcher (seated) as they prepare Christmas gift boxes for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program. The program sends gift boxes that include toys, hygiene items and school supplies to children in developing countries. Underwood, who was recognized by Aramark last year for her contribution to the community through the program, coordinates the program each year for the suite hostesses at Ottawa Senators games, many of whom live in Barrhaven. This year, the Aramark hostesses and staff at Canadian Tire Centre contributed 120 Christmas boxes and collected $270 for the shipping of the boxes to the Samaritan’s Purse program.

change. The Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change is Canada’s plan – developed with the provinces and territories and with input from Indigenous peoples – to meet our emissions reduction targets, grow the economy, and build resilience to a changing climate. The plan includes a pan-Canadian approach to pricing carbon pollution, and measures to achieve reductions across all sectors of the economy, including major investments in infrastructure, clean technology, and through the Low Carbon Economy Fund. The plan aims to drive innovation and growth by increasing technology development and adoption to ensure Canadian businesses are competitive in the transition to a global clean economy. It also includes actions to advance climate change adaptation and build resilience to climate impacts across the country. We’ve committed to implement a federal carbon pol-

lution pricing system that will apply on January 1, 2019, in whole or in part, in any province or territory that requests it or that does not have a carbon pricing system in place

in 2018 that meets the federal standard. The government will return all direct revenue from its carbon pricing system to the jurisdiction of origin.

The IndependentSPORTS Fourth quarter comeback gives Eagles Mosquito A championship

For the second time in three years, the Nepean Redskins have won the NCAFA A Cup championship game. The Eagles defeated Kanata 28-22 in front of an enthusiastic crowd at Minto Field at the Nepean Sportsplex Sunday. The Eagles had defeated the Knights 36-34 in the regular season when the two teams met. “The defence came out big in the second half,” said Guilbeault. “The offence was finally able to move the ball. Kanata has one hell of a defence but we were able to score on them, and our defence was finally able to stop them.” Kanata led at halftime and came back to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. The Eagles responded with a touchdown just two

plays later to regain the lead as Game MVP Reed Prevost fired a touchdown pass. “Our offensive co-ordinator Jason Hudson made a great call and Reed was throwing the ball well all day,” Guilbault said. “They were double covering our receivers, but he was still able to make throws.” The win culminated a successful season for the Eagles during the four-day championship weekend. Both Tyke Eagles played on Saturday, with the Tyke 1 Eagles losing to Kanata 54-22 and the Tyke 2 Eagles losing to Gloucester South 28-22. The Pee Wee Eagles, after starting the season with six straight losses and only one touchdown scored in that span, rallied for their

fourth straight win with an 18-6 win over the Orleans Bengals in the C Cup Final Thursday in the rain. Justin Rowe who splits his time between quarterback and running back, had all three Eagles touchdowns. The Bantam Eagles were eliminated in the semi-finals the previous week by Cumberland 4214.
