Helping Ontario food processors grow their businesses Government of Ontario renews funding opportunities for food processors and other businesses

Beginning in November, Ontario food processors and other businesses can apply for support under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (the Partnership). This is part of a commitment to help the agri-food sector grow and support projects that boost innovation, economic development, environmental stewardship and food safety. The application intake, which opens November 4, is tailored for agri-food businesses looking to increase food safety, develop new markets and expand their operations. More information, including program materials, will be available on the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs website by November 4, 2019. The Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, made this announce-

ment while in Tokyo leading a trade mission to connect Ontario farmers and food processors with key importers and buyers. This funding, along with the trade mission, adds to the strong action taken by the Ontario government to help sectors affected by ongoing trade disputes and challenges to access new markets. The Minister has also been meeting with government representatives and grocery store chains to promote the high quality of Ontario products, including pork, beef, soybean and other agri-food products. The government is committed to helping food pro-

cessors and other important contributors in our agri-food sector be even more competitive and grow their businesses. Investing in these projects will boost innovation, enhance productivity and increase sales for Ontario’s food processing sector and open the doors to new markets for the incredibly safe, high quality foods they produce. Since June 2018, more than 2,000 projects have received commitments through the Partnership to help eligible Ontario farmers, processors, businesses and sector organizations innovate and grow. Quick Facts • The Partnership is a five-year, $3-billion commitment by Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial governments that supports Canada’s agri-food and agriproducts sectors.

• In Ontario, OMAFRA administers cost-share funding under the Partnership to processors and other businesses (animal health, commercializers and primary agri-food businesses). More information about the next application intake, including the program guide and application form, will be available online on November 4, 2019. • The Ontario agrifood sector supports more than 837,000 jobs in Ontario and contributes more than $47.5 billion each year to the province’s economy.

Carleton Conservative MP Poilievre humbled by sixth straight victory By Jeff Morris Manotick Messenger “It’s been a roller coaster,” said Pierre Poilievre after the federal election. “In the last year I’ve knocked on more than 150,000 doors – some houses as many as five times. It’s given me a new appreciation for the people I represent and the enormous responsibility they have invested in me.” The Carleton Conservative MP won the local seat for the sixth consecutive time last Monday, defeating a strong challenge from Liberal candidate Chris Rodgers. As was the case in 2015, Poilievre is the only Conservative to be elected as the Liberals retained the rest of Ottawa’s seats. “I’m deeply humbled by the confidence that my constituents have placed in me for a sixth time,” Poilievre said. “I consider myself their humble servant.” It was close to midnight on election night when Poilievre addressed his supporters and campaign team at the Manotick Legion. He thanked the hundreds of volunteers who spent “tens of thousands of hours” doorknocking and campaigning. He also thanked his family for their support during the campaign. “Let us all join together to say a big thank you to the people of Carleton,” he said to cheers. “There is nothing one can receive more precious than the vote of a fellow citizen. I am deeply grateful and completely humbled by each and every single vote I received from the great people I represent here in the riding of Carleton. I have always believed that government is servant, and people are the masters. I am here to serve you with all my heart.” Poilievre also thanked his opponents in the election. “They poured their hearts and souls into this enterprise,” Poilievre said. “What I can say from having met all of them is that they truly believed in what they were doing and that they put their names forward for all the right reasons.” Poilievre commented that despite the Liberal Party winning a minority govern-

ment for the next term, the Conservative Party received more votes than any other party in Canada. “The people of Canada have given us a mandate to be a strong official opposition in a minority parliament,” Poilievre said. “We will collaborate with other parties when necessary and hold the government accountable where possible, work every day to advance the promises that we made throughout this campaign, and we will always remember that we are here for the people of Canada and not the powerful.” Poilievre played an important role as Official Opposition Critic for the Treasury Board. He was also a member of the Public Accounts Committee, which investigates Auditor General’s reports on government spending and the management of taxpayers’ money. Before the election, he referred to himself as a lone agitator. “There’s a role for holding the government accountable,” he said. “It’s very important

to have voices who represent the people.” One of the first things Poilievre wants to focus on when Parliament resumes is something he said he heard constantly during the campaign. He wants to make life more affordable for families. “High Liberal taxes have driven up the cost of living,” Poilievre said. “Prices are rising faster than paycheques. People are getting by but they are not getting ahead. They want us to fight for their quality of life and their ability to actually get ahead again. That’s the Canadian dream – working hard to get ahead. Right now they are working hard, but they’re not getting ahead. That’s what I want to change, and that’s what I want to champion.” Poilievre said he took no votes for granted, and campaigned as if he was an underdog. “When people asked me how I was doing during the campaign, I always told them I was one vote behind, and if I have your vote, it’s a tie.”

Our transit system needs solutions for local commuters

Much has been made this week about my challenge to Mayor Watson to step into a leadership role on the problem-plagued LRT and bus network. For those who are just reading headlines or hearing repetitive clips on the radio, here is the background. My office has been fielding a growing number of complaints from angry transit users who are fed up with buses that are late or don’t show up, who are enduring much longer commute times, and delays when they are on the trains. We’ve only been able to listen and record the complaints because we did not have information about what was causing the problems or if anyone at the City was working on solutions. In frustration, I emailed a request Sunday night to OC Transpo Management asking for a meeting to get a briefing. I invited other


WARD REPORT by Carol Anne Meehan

colleagues, and Councillors McKenney and Brockington supported my efforts. Monday after lunch, we were notified by Transit Commission Chair Alan Hubley we would not be getting a meeting, one would be held Nov. 6th. Fine, but that meant nine more days without information to supply our constituents. Nothing happens in Ottawa that the Mayor doesn’t know about. Despite the calls from three councillors and a public transit commissioner for more information on a failing transit system, the Mayor did not come forward. Instead Councillor

Hubley issued another letter that was interpreted as telling critics of the LRT system to stay quiet; we “were shaking what confidence there was left.” In a radio interview on Monday afternoon, I asked where Mayor Watson was. Why wasn’t he showing leadership, explaining what he could and telling us what he is doing to address growing issues? I admit I was frustrated when I said it, but frankly it’s what so many others were asking privately. Mayor Watson, when asked by reporters the next day, finally acknowledged problems with the LRT and bussing. He said he’s working with RTG and specialists from other cities, and that he would be announcing more money for bussing next week. I am happy to hear that. But why couldn’t he have told us that without be-


ing pushed? I don’t want to suggest it’s because he knows he rushed the trains into service before they were ready. We now own the LRT system. Nothing will be gained from finger-pointing. We have a transit system that needs solutions, and we should all be working together on that.

Mayor Watson likes to control the message. But this situation is unlike anything we have experienced in Ottawa. We’re all paying dearly for a transit system we want and need. Transparency is essential. We’ve seen what happens when there is a vacuum of information.

I didn’t want to embarrass the Mayor. I want to be a team player, and I want him to be our leader. That means trusting us, treating all Councillors as members of the team and keeping us informed throughout the process. Carol Anne Meehan is the Councillor for Gloucester-South Nepean

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Rodgers says Carleton Liberals have built a grass roots movement By Jeff Morris Manotick Messenger

Just as it was in 2015, election night was bittersweet for Chris Rodgers. The Carleton Liberal candidate received 25,934 votes – 22 votes more than he received in 2015 – but he fell short of unseating incumbent Conservative Pierre Poilievre and his 31,637 votes. However, he and his team were in good spirits on election night as they celebrated their party’s victory. “We won the election, which is fantastic,” Rodgers said. “We showed that you can’t win the election if you don’t have a serious plan to tackle climate change and protect the environment.” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau paid multiple visits to Carleton to campaign with Rodgers and his team, as they were looking at taking the riding from Poilievre’s grasp and give the Liberals a clean sweep in Ottawa. Despite the strong campaign and the strong support shown locally, Rodgers fell short of becoming the first Liberal to take the riding since David Pratt won the Nepean-Carleton seat in the 2000 election. “We had an amazing team, we were better organ-

ized, we had more volunteers, and sometimes you do everything right and it just doesn’t work out,” Rodgers said in a positive tone. Rodgers said that while door-knocking during the campaign, people were looking for a strong local voice. “They were looking for someone to actually talk about this riding, to talk about infrastructure, and to talk about community-level projects – a pool in Riverside South, someone to champion light rail in Stittsville, and better internet service in the rural areas. They’re bread and butter issues. They don’t get people’s blood boiling like some issues do, but that’s what our quality of life depends on, that’s what our local economy depends on, and they felt like they haven’t had anyone address those issues in a long time.” At a personal level, there were some special moments that will stay with Rodgers from the 2019 campaign, including a huge rally at his campaign office in Canada when the Prime Minister came to Manotick to address Carleton Liberals. “We had so much support from the national party,” Rodgers said. “But the biggest thing for me is still the friendships I’ve made with

the local volunteers. We have local volunteers in every corner of this riding – people who had never been involved in politics before, people who had that spark re-ignited. We just built some incredible relationships. Friendships really are the best thing.” Rodgers, who took a leave from being a teacher at South Carleton High School to run in the election, said he is not sure what is next for him. “I want to spend some time with my family,” he said. “I don’t think you’ve seen the last of me in politics, but I don’tChristmas know exact2018 copy 2_Ad copy ly what that will be. I care too much about this community and I care too much about these issues to walk away. But it’s not about me. It’s about caring about your neighbour and building a stronger community.” Rodgers said he is happy with what he and his campaign team have accomplished in the last two elections. “We haven’t just run two good electoral campaigns,” Rodgers said. “We have built up a real grass roots movement right here in this community. Moving forward, whatever happens, whoever is leading the movement, is going to be that much better off in any future election.”

Remembrance Day and the National War Memorial in Ottawa

The creation of the National War Memorial in honour of the 66,573 Canadians, who died in World War 1, was the responsibility of the Federal Government. In 1925 Vernon Marsh of Yorkshire, England won the international competition to design a national war memorial for Canada. After submitting a model he was authorized to commence the project. Marsh and his six brothers and one sister were of a farming background; none had any formal training in art or sculpture. The components of the memorial were conceived and completed in a garden. Although Marsh died

Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 7


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis in 1930 his siblings continued the project over a ten year span. When it was completed in 1932 it was shown in Hyde Park, London, where it received great public acclaim. For the ocean transport to Canada the huge sculpture was broken down into component parts and shipped in thirty-five containers. Many readers likely have visited the site of our National War Me-

morial in Ottawa and will recall that it is in the form of a granite arch, atop which stands the bronze figures of the Victory and Liberty. Marching through the arch are twenty-two figures representing all branches of the armed services in World War 1. Upon the faces of these figures is the hope as they leave behind them the symbol of a cannon. The Memorial was unveiled by

His Majesty King George VI in May 1939, Try and attend a November 11th Remembrance Day ceremony; it’s important that you do; encourage the young people to attend and take the younger children; they need to understand the significance of November 11th. Pause for one minute of silence at 11:00 a.m. on November 11 to honour those who served and died in times of war, military conflict and peace

Municipal Budget Consultation Update draws only 10 people

Another reason to take trucks off Bridge Street

For years, the MVCA has been working to convince the City to decrease the volume of truck traffic on Bridge Street by removing Bridge Street from the southern truck

route with no success. A new study, released by the University of Toronto, provides yet one more reason why the City needs to redirect transport trucks to other more appropriate roads in the City. This new study highlights that truck traffic, particularly diesel trucks, release a number of pollutants into the air at levels that are hazardous to our health, particularly if you live next to a truck route. In particular it notes the release of nitrous oxides, ozones, sulphur dioxide and particulates. It also noted that pollution levels were higher in areas where large trucks made up a larger portion of the traffic. In particular, levels of black carbon were higher as a result of trucks releasing diesel exhaust. The study recommends not locating new facilities such as schools or seniors buildings along established truck routes to minimize the health impact. In the case of Manotick, the City should consider amending its transportation master plan to remove the truck route from a road that passes by an elementary school and two seniors buildings as well as a public park, library and two churches. The study also recommends that cities should do a better job of collecting data on the types of trucks travelling on our roads. It also calls for better monitoring of these pollutants and recommends that cities establish monitoring stations near truck routes. Perhaps the City could con-

Beryl Gaffney Park update

Things are moving ahead with the creation of a fencedin dog park as part of the enhancements to Beryl Gaffney Park. The park, to be located at the south end of the park adjacent to the parking lot off Rideau Valley Drive, will be an off-leash park. In order to create the dog park with a buffer between it and nearby homes, the City is purchasing land to add to what is already identified as part of Beryl Gaffney Park. The process also includes a zoning amendment to rezone the parcel from agricultural to open space and parkland. The amendment is part of an Omnibus Amendments docu-

ment going to Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee on November 7.

A joint consultation session held in late October by Councillors Darouze and Moffatt drew about 10 people out to hear about the 2020 budget process and to ask questions of the Councillors and City staff. The only thing that is clear about the budget is that overall taxes are slated to increase by 3% but the impact of anticipated funding cuts by the Province of Ontario is not yet known. The good news is the City has announced additional measures and funding to improve snow removal this coming winter, including purchasing some new equipment that will be more effective in dealing with icy sidewalks and roadways. The budget will be discussed at Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee on December 5th. Details on the budget process can be found at https://ottawa.ca/en/cityhall/budget. The Manotick Village and Community Association has submitted a number of requests for consideration for funding including an extension of the Main Street sidewalk south to Century Road as part of the planned resurfacing of Rideau Valley Drive in 2020, an audible walk signal at Bridge and Main, a pedestrian crosswalk at Beaverwood and Main Street, enhancements to Centennial Park and a sidewalk along Eastman Avenue. Full details on our submission are available on our web site at www. manotickvca.org

This year the tour date will be on Saturday, November 30th from 10-4. Tickets can be purchased online at eventbrite.ca under the name The Village of Richmond Holiday House & Business Tour or by contacting kinkadedesign@gmail.com To follow all the information about the tour you can like the event on Facebook https://www. facebook.com/thevillageofrich-

mondholidayhouseandbusinesstour/ The tour is always looking for houses in Richmond and outside of Richmond to feature and encourages people to reach out to them if they would like to nominate a home. Sponsors are always welcome and more are being sought. Without the generous support of business sponsors the tour could not happen. If your company would like to help with this charity event and become a sponsor just email Sonya at kinkadedesign@gmail.com there are four different sponsorship packages she can suggest.

North Gower plan is less impactful than the original vision

Since the summer, I have discussed a Zoning Amendment and Official Plan Amendment application for 1966 Roger Stevens Drive in this column several times. On October 17th, I hosted a very well attended community information session to discuss the application and provide the community in North Gower and Kars the opportunity to speak directly with the applicant. While I did detail the application in one of my September columns, I think it is an important enough file to discuss further at this point in time. To begin, in case you may be unaware of this application, Broccolini is proposing to alter the zoning for the property at the southwest corner of Highway 416 and Roger Stevens Drive. The current zoning permits a variety of uses on the site and was originally designated by Rideau Township in the late 1990’s. In 2003, the development was registered with residential lots being severed off along Third Line Road. The uses on the remainder of the site include automobile service station, gas bar, hotel, restaurant, retail store, animal hospital, among others, in the Rural Commercial zone while uses in the Rural General Industrial zone includes largely the same things in addition to heavy equipment sales, light industrial uses, truck transport terminal and waste processing and transfer facility. Both zones permit the use of a warehouse. Lot size and building size are not specifically defined in the zoning save that the current maximum building height is 15m. Therefore, there are currently an array of options for development on that site today. The proposal from Broccolini certainly veers from what


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

was originally envisioned. They prefer a single building rather than many and they would prefer an industrial building more centralized on the property, away from the property edges. They would also prefer a 30m height maximum rather than the current 15m. To fully appreciate the differing visions for this property, picture the industrial park at the corner of Carp Road and the 417. It is home to the OZ Dome, Italfoods, Waste Management, Green Tech, the City’s snow dump, a gas station and more. Now picture the new Giant Tiger distribution centre just on the edge of Prescott, near where the 416 meets the 401. Those are the two options we must consider. Let’s now build on that. Both options come with truck traffic, light pollution, noise concerns, traffic impacts, hydrogeological issues, etc. These are all issues that need to be addressed. It is my job to ensure that these issues are mitigated through any development, whether an application came forward with the Carp Road option or an application came forward with the Giant Tiger option. The question many in the North Gower have is why I support the proposal put forward by Broccolini. First off, I support growth. Given my nine years on Council and even in the two election campaigns that I ran in before I became a Councillor, this should not come as a surprise. Secondly, I believe when an application comes forward,

we need to deal with it on its merits according to all governing policies. In this case, it would be the North Gower Secondary Plan, the Official Plan and the Provincial Policy Statement. Lastly, I believe the best option in the long-term interests of nearby residents is the option with the least impact. Allow me to explain why I feel this is less impactful than the original vision. Above, I highlighted some issues and concerns that would be relevant regardless of what type of industrial development was being proposed. However, there are other matters that distinguish the two options. From an environmental impact viewpoint, a single building with one well and one waste treatment facility is less impactful than multiple wells and septic systems. The subject property is just under half the size of the industrial park on Carp Road. In that space, they built over 40 properties. That would give you the scale of the number of wells required. For this to be a true comparison, I have only looked at the portion of the Carp Road development that is not on municipal water. Keeping with environmental impact, tree loss is a significant concern. A Carp Road development would eradicate most of the trees on the site. A single facility development could be sited where the least amount of impact is felt, and it also provides opportunities for additional tree planting. These issues and the ones mentioned

earlier can all be addressed during the Site Plan application process and I can assure residents that I will be active in working to address those concerns. Broccolini is fully aware of that. Future management of a site like this is also a key factor to consider. When concerns arise with a single facility property, it is one contact person to deal with those concerns. If we have persistent noise or traffic concerns in five to ten years, we continue to work with the one property owner rather than many. Finally, one of the main considerations for me and my position on this application is from a policy perspective. I liken this to the Minto controversy in Manotick. The community was against it. The Councillor was against it. The existing policies were open to interpretation enough for the development to be permitted. Council voted against it and it ended up being approved through the appeal process. In the case of the North Gower Secondary Plan, the same issue of interpretation exists. On height, the Secondary Plan makes no recommendations as it pertains to the height on this property. Height limitations only exist in the village centre as defined in Schedule E of the Secondary Plan. On the permitted uses, they are also defined in the Section 4.7 of the Secondary Plan. This is the section that speaks to development bene-

fitting the farming community. That statement is included under “intent.” Permitted uses do not then prescribe that intent in the zoning. This creates an opening for interpretation. Municipalities cannot govern by intent. They need to speak clearly through motions and zoning policy. When Council votes against items that could be permitted under current policy, it puts the community in a disadvantaged position. I do not believe in voting against something just for the sake of voting against it and taking my chances through the appeal process. The way I have always done this job is that I work collaboratively to make applications better. The way I see it, this application is likely headed for an appeal either way. My job is to find a solution that is in the

best interests of the communities that I represent. Opposing the current proposal and hoping that we can be successful through appeal is not doing my job. Getting to work with the applicant and concerned community members to refine the current application and make it better is my job. If residents disagree with my philosophy, so be it. I would rather be up front and honest with my constituents than pander to them. The truth is not always what we want it to be, but elected officials cannot be afraid to be honest.

North Gower application at odds with original Official Plan

The Editor, Re: Zoning change for Roger Stevens Dr. at Hwy. 416 I wish to object strongly to the proposed amendments to support a mega-warehouse facility at this location. I specifically object to any zoning amendments to this site, as these have been contemplated with approval in 2003. The Site is which was registered as Plan 4M-1191 in 2003 which was consulted on and approved. The subject lands are in Part of Lot 21 and 22, Concession 2 of North Gower. The sited designed as an industrial subdivision consisting of several Blocks designed to accommodate a variety of rurally-oriented highway commercial and industrial land uses. The Plan also includes a total of ten residential lots fronting onto 3rd Line Road. Volume 2 of the Official Plan provides detailed villagespecific policies contained within Secondary Plans that complement the Official Plan. The Secondary Plan for the Village of North Gower provides for a range of land use designations, and Section 4.0 indicates that the designations are described in terms of intent as “Highway Commercial” and “Industrial”. The Highway Commercial designation is described in Section 4.4 of the Village Secondary Plan. The designation applies to the lands abutting Highway 416 and along Roger Stevens Drive, with the intent that these lands are to accommodate commercial uses that are dependent on good highway access and visibility. Permitted highway commercial uses include those that are of a recreational and/or commercial type such as campground, automobile dealership, gas bar, heavy equipment and vehicle sales, and kennel. The Industrial designation is described in Section 4.7 of the Village Secondary Plan and applies to the westernmost portion of the Site, with the intent that Industrial designation should accommodate uses that could benefit the farming community and businesses that require visibility to the vehicular traffic on Highway 416. The permitted industrial uses include light manufacturing, building materials supply, warehouse, storage yard and farm implement sales and repair. The use policies in Section 4.4 and 4.7 of the Secondary Plan reflect the block fabric of the

registered plan of subdivision, which are based on the specific land uses that were contemplated with the approval of the Jordel Acres subdivision. The proposed amendments to the zoning should be refused for development of poor design that fails to take the opportunities available for improving the character and quality of this rural residential, farming and agri-business community and the way it functions. The Village of North Gower grew as a thriving agri-business, farming and residential community and is considered by many as the “rural jewel” of Ottawa. The growth of the North Gower outside of the core areas has occurred by both consent and plan of subdivision, on a basis consistent with limitations imposed by rural private ser-

vicing. North Gower is a dispersed settlement where development proposals should be considered very carefully: a megawarehouse facility would ruin the character of the village and overwhelm its infrastructure. The rationale for the amendment to the zoning of this land is inconsistent with the designation of Village as outlined in Schedule A of the City of Ottawa Official Plan. The site plan Plan 4M-1191 in 2003 proposal was resisted by the community, which conceded based on the following significant restrictions: 1. It should benefit the farming community 2. Allow for light–manufacturing, building material supplies 3. Restrict buildings to a limit of 15m in height

Only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.

The planning rationale proposed in D02-02-19-0081 disregards these concessions, consultation and approval for the current zoning of this site. The proposed siting of the development is particularly ill-considered: it is an active and productive agricultural site providing food and feed to the local community, which

is contrary to a false claim recorded in the Planning Rational document on page 2 stating that “lands currently remain idle.” Furthermore, there is no need for this kind of open mega-warehouse development within a Village. There are plenty of market opportunities for this kind of development

that can be developed beyond the region proposed. These properties that are available are industrial, have highway access and do not significantly impact the surrounding community. A few cursory examples of available land that are not situated within a Village community can be found.

and I love playing sports.” What is Your Greatest Accomplishment? “In 2017, my Ringette Team won Bronze at Provincials, which is one of my fondest memories and greatest accomplishments. Being a team who didn’t start out the season super strong, it took a lot of practice and dedication to get to the level we needed in order to compete with the best teams in the province. We ended up doing just that, and walking away with third place in all of Ontario. Also, I have made Honour Roll, or received a Silver Medal for my academic average every year of high school. This is something I’m very proud of, because I really try

to prioritize my school work.” A c t i v i t i e s / I n t e re s t s : “I started playing ringette locally for the Metcalfe Hornets when I was three years old. I’m now playing out of Stittsville for the West Ottawa Wild in my 13th, and most likely my final season. Ringette is my biggest passion, and definitely takes up a lot of my time outside of school. I’ve learned so much throughout the years from my coaches and teammates, and have been lucky enough to meet some of my best friends through the sport. At school, I’m involved in Student Council where I help to organize events for students throughout the year. I also play football and softball during the spring, which are always a blast.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “My parents put all of my sisters and me in ringette at a young age because my mom

grew up playing ringette. I’ve decided to stick to playing, because it’s something that is just meant for me to enjoy and stay active. As for Student Council, I decided to join in grade ten along with many of my friends. It seemed like a great leadership opportunity that would actually have an impact on the school, and the students themselves.” Career Goals: “My plan for the future is still tentative, but as of right now, I would like to apply to Queen’s to study Kinesiology in hopes of one day becoming a physiotherapist. As someone who has been involved in sports for my whole life, I’ve had injuries and have seen many of my teammates get injured, I think it would be very rewarding to have the chance to help people overcome those injuries and get back to doing what they love.”

The MessengerNEWS Royals outplay first place Casselman but lose third straight game By Jeff Morris Manotick Messenger

A three-game losing streak may sound like a slump, but when you consider the schedule and the opposition, the Richmond Royals are anything but in a slump. For the second straight Sunday afternoon, the Royals dropped a Central Canada Hockey League 2 home game to the first place juggernaut Casselman Vikings, with a Wednes-

day night loss to a tough Brockville Tikis team on the road in between. Sunday at the Richmond Memorial Centre, the Royals skated with and even outplayed the Vikings for the much of the game, but the visitors pulled away for a 5-2 win. The Royals outshot Casselman 21-9 in the third period, and also outshot them in the game by a 43-32 margin. Richmond opened the scoring on the power play just 55

letter continues from page 14 Despite the ward councillors assertion that Lot 21 and 22, Concession 2 of North Gower is the only available land suited for this use. The planning rationale sites “current needs to accommodate an evolving e-business market to serve the changing logistics industry, in contrast to the current focus on serving the farming community.” This is claim is not supported by data; furthermore, there is no data to support the contention that the current focus of the zoning is impractical for current or future use. The Planning Rationale is inaccurate and misleading. The application is at odds with the Official Plan and is unconstitutional as it is fails to advance legitimate public purpose of the community welfare and protection of properties. This spot zoning is unlawful. The lowered property value impact for the Village is neither recognized nor of concern to the City or developers. The closest building of this height and size is at least 30km away.

The Ottawa city council recently made a climate emergency declaration. The mayor, Jim Watson, stated this declaration was no empty gesture; yet if this proposal is approved the City is openly standing “idly by” on climate change. The proposal indicates approximately 1,100 to 1,700 employees would be commuting to work at the proposed warehouse. There are no transportation, sewage, or water services at this area to support a massive infrastructure project. There is close to a zero occupancy rate at this time in this Village. The hypocrisy of the City allowing this proposal to pass, will not go unrecognized by the public or the press. The impact of traffic, according to the transportation impact study, is significant and further impacts the safety and quality of life for residents. Broccolini approached MTO prior to submitting the application to request direct access to HWY 416. MTO denied the permission and declared that it would be a 3-year process to

seconds after the opening face off as Ryan Mann netted his seventh goal of the year from Patrick Yates and Curran Gilmour. The Vikings came back early in the second, scoring twice in a 28-second span as Maxime Desjardins and Adam Paquette scored. Midway through the period, Gilmour’s first of the year from Yates and Mann tied the score. Casselman took the lead with just over a minute to play in the second, as Francois Drouin

scored to give the Vikings the lead. In the third period, the Royals thoroughly outplayed the Vikings, but strong goaltending by the game’s first star, Zachary Racine, prevented the Royals from netting the equalizer. Justin Gregoire scored for Casselman with 3:40 left, and then Samuel Labre added a shorthanded empty net goal to make the final Richmond Royals goalie Josh Lacelle makes a save against score 5-2.

ITR Theatre Company turns back the clock – by 124 years! Special to the Messenger

On November 3rd this year was the day for us all to “fall back”, turning our clocks – internal and external – back an hour. But in this fall’s comedy performance of The Importance of Being Earnest, ITR Theatre Company is turning back the clock all the way to 1895. Written by the renowned and controversial playwright Oscar Wilde, the show is subtitled A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. There are many kinds of comedy. ITR has often presented farces, where people enter and exit through the wrong doors at the wrong times, to great hilarity. ITR has also offered touching

family comedies that make audiences laugh while simultaneously tugging on their heartstrings. The Importance of Being Earnest falls into a different category: it is a comedy of manners, a comedy of wits and a superb comedy of words. The importance of language in The Importance of Being Earnest begins with the title, where Earnest is spelled with an “a” while the name Ernest, which figures largely in the play, is spelled without one. Earnest means serious, and the character(s) of Ernest in the play are anything but – and so the puns and wordplay begin. To explore this theme further, you’ll have to come see the show!

ITR first performed The Importance of Being Earnest in 1992, 27 years ago – so reprising it is another way of turning back time. The current production is directed by Steve Wendt, who has directed several shows for ITR’s sister company, the Kemptville Players. It features several ITR veterans as well as first-timers to the ITR stage and one actor, Angelique Iles, who is making her theatre début in this show. Another first-timer is Klaus Beltzner, well-known for his many contributions to the Manotick community, who is turning over a new leaf in a non-speaking but highly entertaining role as the Footman. The Importance of Being Earn-

est opens on November 15th at the Osgoode Community Centre and runs there for two consecutive weekends. Friday night performances are at 7:30, with doors and bar opening at 7. Dinner shows are on Saturday evenings: doors and bar open at 5:30, dinner is served at 6 and the show starts when dinner ends. Sunday matinées begin at 2, with doors opening at 1:30 for complimentary tea, coffee and cookies. Tickets are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors and students and $55 for the dinner theatre shows.
