Please bring your family and friends and join me at my constituency office for my annual CARLETON COMMUNITY BBQ, Saturday September 21, 2019, 12 noon – 3 pm, 6179 Perth Street, Richmond, ON, K0A2Z0. We will have entertainment, children’s activities, music, door prizes, and of course, lots and lots of food! My team and I will also be on hand to answer any questions you have. This is one of my favourite events because it gives me an opportunity to show everyone in Carleton how thankful I am to be your voice at Queen’s Park. This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to join us. Please feel free to share this event with everyone you know. Last year we had almost 1000 people show up and I’m looking

Your voice in Queen’s Park Goldie Ghamari, MPP, Carleton

forward to making my annual community BBQ bigger and better. RSVP not necessary, but it would be a big help! That way I can make sure we have enough food and refreshments for everyone attending. You can RSVP by calling my office or going to my website: goldiempp.ca I look forward to seeing you there!


As you know, on June 6, 2019, the provincial government passed the More Homes, More Choice Act,

2019, which updated the Conservation Authorities Act. We made these legislative changes to improve public transparency, consistency, and accountability in conservation authority operations. These changes will give greater control to individual municipalities on conservation authority programs and budgets. Over the coming months, the Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks will be reviewing all of the relevant legislation and regulations that govern Ontario’s conservation authorities to explore even more opportunities to refocus their efforts and to ensure they are best serving the interests of the people of Ontario. I will be making an exciting announcement about this very soon! If you want to hear my announcement as soon as it’s

made, please sign up for my newsletter on my website: goldiempp.ca/newsletter


Calling all New and Innovative Ideas in Ontario Agriculture Recently, the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs announced that the Excellence in Agriculture program is open to receive applications and now includes a new category to recognize outstanding young farmers. The Excellence in Agriculture program recognizes agri-food innovations and advancements that demonstrate leadership, product development or technology advancement that will benefit the sector. The innovations recognized will be those that have potential to help move the agri-food

sector forward, so it is better positioned to thrive here at home and on the global stage. In addition to primary producers, processors and agri-food organizations, the 2019 Excellence in Agriculture program has a new category to recognize outstanding youth leaders in the agri-food sector. Youth under 29, who are residents of Ontario and have an innovation with a direct link to the agri-food sector, are encouraged to apply. There is also a new category focused on innovation. Application criteria for all five applicant categories can be found in the program guidebook. The top innovation in each of the five categories will receive a plaque in recognition of their achievement and will be featured in a promotional video. All recipients will have access to the Excellence in Agriculture wordmark to

be used for marketing and promotional purposes, and up to 15 honorable mention recipients will receive a certificate. Applications can be submitted until October 11, 2019. To submit an application, please visit my website: goldiempp.ca/excellence-inagriculture-2019


My constituency office is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm and I have 4 full-time employees helping me serve the people of Carleton. If you require assistance on any matter, please contact me at any time. It’s why I’m here. Even if it’s not a provincial issue, I’ll make sure to connect you with the proper office. - Goldie Your voice at Queen’s Park

Infrastructure fees for new Richmond homes passed on to homeowners By Messenger Staff The cost of infrastructure and servicing for future homes on Richmond’s Western Development Lands will be paid for by landowners. The City of Ottawa Agriculture and Recreation Committee approved the costsharing amendment at their Sept. 5 meeting. “There was some confusion when this notice went out, and it’s important to note this does not impact

current home owners,” Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt said. “This is only for future lands.” Moffatt said that the charges are paid by the developers, who in turn add it to the price of each new home. “The same thing happened with the homes being built now when they were sold,” Moffatt said. The landowners costsharing agreement will affect parcels of land on 6335, 6350 and 6363 Perth Street,

as well as 6305, 6420 and 6431 Ottawa Street, as well as associated unaddressed parcels of land. These addresses are located at the western edge of the Village of Richmond north and south of the two streets. The policies direct development to proceed on municipal servicing, and shared stormwater management facilities and parks. Water in the new developments will provided by a public communal well sys-

proved within the Western Development Lands. The Developer was obligated to dedicate and construct a park, upgrade the Martin

Street Sewer, install a municipal water well facility, and design and install the first part of a stormwater management pond.

Federal government spending is up 10% in one year! The books are almost $5 billion worse off this year than last—so the debt is bigger and growing faster, according to this Globe & Mail article, “Federal spending rises by more than 10 per cent over first quarter”. Why? Because Justin Trudeau is recklessly spending your money to distract from scandals and broken promises. Here is where you come in. The only way Trudeau pays for it is with higher taxes ON YOU. You can’t afford him. That is why Conservatives have a plan for government to live within its means, leave more in your pocket and let you get ahead. Here is how: 

Stop taxpayer hand-outs to corrupt foreign governments and corporate insiders like SNC, Loblaws & Bombardier;

Slow government spending growth;

Stop illegal border crossings, which cost $1 billion.

These savings could help phase out the deficit, protect public service jobs & lower your taxes.

Let’s make life affordable again, so you get ahead.

Juno Award nominee Jeremy Fisher to perform in Manotick

Canadian singer songwriter and Juno Award nominee Jeremy Fisher will be performing at Manotick United Church Friday, Sept. 13. The show is part of the Festivals Across Small Halls Tour – Big Music in a Little Place across Eastern Ontario. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Before the show, starting at 5:30 p.m., The United Church will host a dinner (BBQ pork tenderloin, sweetcorn, salads, homemade rolls, Apple Cranberry crisp, coffee, tea, ice water included. Vegetarian and gluten free options available at no extra cost.). Tickets for the dinner are available at www.eventbrite. ca/e/bbq-pork-supper-tickets-65104361899. There will be a maximum of 100 tickets sold and there will only be one seating. Beer and wine will be available at a cash bar before, during and after dinner. It’s been 10 years, three studio albums and countless tours since Fisher released his album Goodbye Blue Monday, a scrappy collection of acoustic folk pop produced by Hawksley Workman. In 2007, Jeremy Fisher released Goodbye Blue Monday, including tracks such as the upbeat Scar That Never Heals, contemplative ballad Fall For Anything, and Jolene which features his penchant for fingerpicked guitar and hushed harmonies. The homemade

stop-motion video for the song Cigarette, featuring an anthropomorphic title character, became a viral phenomenon in the early days of YouTube. The album was nominated for two JUNO awards in 2008 (Best New Artist, Adult Alternative Album of the Year), and gave Fisher the opportunity to tour extensively throughout Canada, Australia and the USA, where he appeared twice on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. “Goodbye Blue Monday is still a favourite at the merch table,” says Fisher, “and I’ve always wanted to offer it in the format I believe sounds best. We’ve remastered it for vinyl and it’s been amazing to hear the record again the way I remember hearing playback in the studio.” Fisher’s most recent studio album, The Lemon Squeeze, garnered him a 2015 JUNO nomination in the Adult Alternative Album of the Year category, with two singles landing in the CBC radio 2 Top 20. He played sold-out shows and festivals all across Canada in support of the release. He has 6 studio albums to-date and is working on his first collection of children’s songs since becoming a father last year. In 2015, Jeremy built a small studio in his back yard called “The Sugar Shack” where he has produced albums for other artists (Great Big Sea’s Sean McCann, Adam Kagan) as well as in-

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT Richmond Fair has been a big part of South Carleton for 175 years

Next weekend marks the 175th year for the Richmond Fair. To be precise, this year’s edition will be held from September 19th to the 22nd. Beginning in 1844, the Fair has grown to epitomize the village of Richmond. It is as much a part of Richmond as the village is to the Fair. The two are synonymous with one another. Over the years, it has been a big part of my life as well. During my years at South Carleton, I was one of those Friday night youths who took over the fairgrounds. I never got kicked out of the fair during those years, though, so I have that going for me. In the years since, the Fair has become a significant part of my professional life as well. In 2006, I hosted my first booth at the Fair for the municipal election that year. While only a few years removed from high school at the time, it was a fun opportunity to reconnect with friends and meet new people. I owe a lot of my success in 2006 to the opportunity afforded to me at the Fair. The presence of my grandmother, Hilda Moore, didn’t hurt either. As past President of the Richmond Legion and a longtime volunteer with many local Goulbourn organizations, my grandmother was a mainstay at the Fair. I have had the pleasure of hosting a booth at the front gate of the Fair ten different years. During each of those years, I

would spend between 30 and 40 hours on the fairgrounds. It is something I look forward to every year and something my family looks forward to as well. The Richmond Fair is more than just an opportunity to be present as the Councillor for RideauGoulbourn but a chance for my children to enjoy what so many have for decades before them. My kids have grown up at the Richmond Fair. They have produced countless memories over the years for which I am forever grateful. 175 years is an incredible achievement. Last year, Richmond celebrated its bicentennial. That celebration came together thanks to the countless volunteers in the village. The Richmond Fair is no different. Volunteers are what make communities great and the Richmond Fair runs on volunteerism. From the concerts inside the arena to the homecraft exhibits to the horse shows, everything is put together each and every year by countless volunteers and we owe them a debt of gratitude. I am certain it will not be long until we are celebrating the bicentennial of the Richmond Fair but don’t wait 25 years to go

and enjoy the Fair, whether it is the first time you go or the 60th. Every year at the Fair is special and the Richmond Agricultural Society is doing their best to make the 175th every bit as special as the previous 174. For more information about the Richmond Fair, please visit www.richmondfair.ca and I hope to see you around the fairgrounds.

City of Ottawa Official Plan As we celebrate our past, staff and Councillors at the City are busy planning our future and we want to know what you think about how Ottawa will change and grow around us, now and for years to come. We are in the midst of rewriting Ottawa’s Official Plan – the strategic document that describes how the city will grow over time, where we will place major infrastructure, and what policies will be in place to sup-

port economic growth and guide the development and evolution of communities. Our goal is to position Ottawa to be flexible, resilient and, above all, a city where people want to live, work and play. Following initial consultations with the public and stakeholders on a series of wide-ranging discussion papers, we are proposing to make a number of significant policy changes, known as the Five Big Moves: Growth, Mobility, Urban Design, Resiliency, and Economy. We want to know what you think about these changes and how they will affect your daily lives. Learn more and share your thoughts about the Five Big Moves at ottawa.ca/ NewOP from now until September 16th. Your feedback will help us develop a set of comprehensive policy directions that City Council will consider in late 2019. Should Council support these directions, the City will de-

How to handle car trouble while driving


to include in your automotive emergency kit. Keep a blanket in the trunk as well so your passengers can stay warm should you experience car trouble on a cold day or night. · Make note of your surroundings. Some car troubles can only be fixed by the professionals, so pay careful attention to your surroundings in case an issue arises and forces you to pull over and call for help. Always pay attention to mile markers and any landmarks that might help you describe where you are. Car troubles can strike at any time and anywhere, so be sure to pay special attention to your surroundings when driving in unfamiliar areas. · Pull over. Don’t panic if an issue arises suddenly. Remain calm and pull over onto the shoulder. The right shoulder is the area for pulling over on most roads, but you may also use the left shoulder on multilane highways with medians. Try to get as far away from traffic as possible without driving off of level ground, and always use your signals when pulling onto the shoulder. If the vehicle can’t make it to the median, put


your emergency flashers on and get out of the car, moving away from both the vehicle and traffic. Immediately call for emergency roadside assistance, alerting the authorities if need be. · Use flares or triangles to alert other drivers. So long as you are not risking your wellbeing, you can place flares and/or warning triangles behind your vehicle so oncom-

ing traffic knows to drive around it. The popular notfor-profit motor club AAA recommends placing the first flare or triangle 10 feet directly behind the side of the vehicle that is closest to the road. The second should be placed between 30 and 60 feet

(increase the distances as the posted speed limit increases) behind the middle of the bumper, while the third flare or triangle should be placed between 120 and 360 feet behind the vehicle’s right side. · Stay with the vehicle. Once you have called for help

and set up flares or triangles, stay with the vehicle, though do so at a safe enough distance so you are not in harm’s way. Sudden car troubles can be scary, but drivers who approach such issues calmly and quickly can reduce their risk for accident or injury.


Sudden car trouble is something no driver wants to experience, but many a driver has been driving down the highway only to feel his or her vehicle start to sputter. Such sputtering might indicate a car is running low on fuel, or it could be a sign of something more serious that requires motorists to think as quickly and safely as possible. When car trouble strikes while a vehicle is on the road, the first thing many drivers do is check their fuel gauges. A car that runs out of gas is certainly inconvenient, but if you can pull over to the shoulder or make it to the nearest filling station, then this unfortunate situation can be remedied rather easily. But when a car’s tank is full and it is still showing signs of trouble, drivers must take steps to protect themselves, their passengers and their vehicles. The following are a few simple tips motorists should keep in mind so they can safely handle any car trouble that may arise while they are out on the road. · Keep a first-aid kit, spare tire and tire jack in the car at all times. Flat tires are no fun, but they are even more of a nuisance when drivers are not prepared to address them. Always keep a jack and spare tire in your car, even if the spare is a donut you can temporarily use to replace a flat tire until you make it to a filling station or automotive supply store. As an added safety measure, keep a fully stocked first aid kit in your vehicle in case you cut yourself while changing the tire or need to address another medical situation.

Tire maintenance keeps drivers safe

Maintaining tires is an important component of safe driving. Tires are some of the hardest working parts on a car or truck and are subjected to wear and tear every time rubber meets the road. Tires affect many components of driving, including handling, braking and the comfort of the ride. Maintaining tires makes driving safe not only for drivers and their passengers, but also for fellow motorists. The National Highway

Traffic Safety Administration says that, in 2017, 738 fatalities occurred because of tire-related crashes. Many of those crashes were no doubt preventable, and that only highlights the importance of maintaining tires and monitoring their performance. Poor tire maintenance can lead to premature wear and potentially result in a blowout. The automotive group AAA notes it is important to visually inspect tires as often as possible. Drivers should look

for overall tread wear. Pay special attention to tread wear on one edge of the tires, which could indicate poor alignment. Erratic tread wear may mean tires are out of balance. Drivers also should pay attention to how their cars drive and sounds. Unusual vibration or thumping noises suggest issues with the tires. A car that pulls in one direction also may be experiencing tire problems. Vehicle owners should be aware of the routine mainten-

ance steps that can keep them safe and improve the life expectancy of tires. · Tire pressure: The NHTSA says only 19 percent of consumers properly check and inflate their tires. Keeping tires properly inflated is one of the most important steps to maintaining them. Tires lose around 1 psi per month, and underinflated or overinflated tires can contribute to unusual wear, blowouts and even excessive fuel consumption. · Rotation: Check the

owner’s manual or recommendations from the tire manufacturer, but know that most mechanics advise having tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Rotation helps distribute wear more evenly on tires. · Balancing: AAA says balancing also helps minimize uneven wear and tear. Balanced tires are achieved by using small weights attached to the wheels to limit vibration of the tire and wheels as they turn. New tires should be balanced, and tires also should be

balanced after one or more is removed to repair a puncture. · Alignment: Vehicles have wheel alignment measurements that pertain to manufacturers’ specifications. Alignment that falls outside of the range can impact handling, fuel economy and tread wear. A drift or pull suggests alignment problems and should be addressed. Vehicle owners should keep tire inspection and maintenance in mind as part of their overall car care plan.

Federal gas tax funds should be spent on roads, infrastructure September is here. School yards are full of children and City Council will resume the busy schedule of committee work and Council meetings. As the leaves begin to change colour, so does the atmosphere at City Hall. The 2020 budget is under development by City Staff and Councillors will receive an update on the financial health of the City and what residents can expect in the way of tax increases. We have already heard that staff are working to fulfill the Mayor’s promise of an overall 2 percent property tax cap, but that is to accommodate a 6.4 percent Transit Levy increase. The 6.4 percent Transit Levy is not the fare paid by riders, it is the cost allocated to every property in the City for transit service. The larger than expected increase is to cover the loss of the provincial gas tax revenue originally budgeted by finance staff to help fund the cost of LRT. Unfortunately, the previous Council allowed staff to prepare a financial plan to pay for LRT that relied on a promise made by another level of government. That error will cost taxpayers over the long-term. This past April, I put a motion forward with Councillor McKenney to allocate $57 million of the federal gas tax funds to help close the infrastructure renewal gap. Gas taxes are paid by drivers filling up their vehicles. I believe federal gas taxes should be spent repairing our roads and infrastructure. It only makes sense. Up until now, this was not the case. Gas taxes were spent solely on transit. I’m happy to report that City staff are recommending that the $57



WARD REPORT by Carole Anne Meehan

million, which I requested be spent on repairing Ottawa’s infrastructure, will be included as part of their budget recommendation to Council. This is a huge win for Ottawa’s drivers and taxpayers, and a significant change to the “business as usual” mindset of Staff and Councillors. As part of my budget priorities conversation that I will be having with the Mayor and senior staff, I will be advocating for the City to review our planning and funding model which the City uses to forecast Ottawa’s growth. This conversation is timely, as Ottawa is currently updating its Official Plan while contending with the changes forced onto municipalities by the provincial gov’t’s Bill 108. Ottawa’s south end communities, such as Manotick, Findlay Creek and Riverside South are expanding quickly. The current model of develop first, build supporting infrastructure later has not been working. Ensuring growth-related infrastructure is enhanced to accommodate new and growing communities while they are being built should be the endgame for city planners. I reassure you, it is for me. On a much lighter note, I will be hosting a Community-Wide Corn Roast on Saturday September 21st, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at the Nepean Woods Park and Ride on Strandherd

What does the Richmond Fair mean to you?

By David Brown Special to the Messenger

The Richmond Fair turns 175 years old this year! What a milestone for our village. Ottawa is fortunate enough to have five Fair’s within the City, Richmond has been around the longest. Country fairs used to be the place for farmers to gather once a year to compete with their livestock and crops, see their friends and neigh-

bours and enjoy a ride on the midway. 175 years later, this has not changed. The rides are bigger, and the village has moved away from agriculture acting as the largest employer, but residents still come to the Fair to see their neighbours, enjoy the livestock shows, enter homecraft projects and to enjoy the friendly atmosphere absent in so many communities today. So what does the Rich-

mond Fair mean to me? I have been around the Richmond Fair for 28 years. I’ve ridden the rides, showed cows in 4-H, received my volunteer hours in order to graduate from South Carleton High School and been a volunteer for the past 19 years. I was even lucky enough to have my picture taken in the parade when I was four years old during the Fair’s 151st year, a photo that still hangs in the fair

office today. Having a connection with my community, where I can come and enjoy the fair food, the evening dances, see friends that I might not have seen since the last Fair, but more than that, to be able to say that I have had the opportunity to volunteer to give back to Richmond. That is what the Fair means to me. The generations of volunteers before me worked hard every year to provide my generation with a Fair.

I am proud to be continuing this tradition, so my friend’s and their children have an annual fair to enjoy. So what does the Richmond Fair mean to you? We want to know! Send us an email or write in telling us what the Fair means to you for the chance to win two admissions tickets! The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, September 17th at 5:00 pm. richmondfair@sympat-

Barrhaven to get city’s first suburban marijuana shop

Ottawa’s fourth legal cannabis dispensary will be in Barrhaven. The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has released the results of the cannabis

retail store lottery draw it held on August 20. The lottery provided those who met pre-qualification requirements for one of the 42 new store authorizations announced by the Govern-

ment of Ontario on July 3, 2019, an opportunity to be selected to apply for one. There was one Ottawa winner among the 42 selected out of 4,864 eligible expressions of interest in-

cluded in the lottery draw. Ethan Stark was the Ottawa winner. The proposed store address was 4335 Strandherd Drive, Units 3,4 and 5. The proposed location will be in the

strip mall located in front of Costco, in the units between Tutti Frutti and Sleep Country. The AGCO has notified the selected applicants that they may now apply for a

cannabis Retail Operator Licence and a Retail Store Authorization. The AGCO will only licence applicants and authorize stores that meet all legal and regulatory requirements.

RVCA says Minor Low Water status remains in place along Rideau

Despite recent cool and rainy weather, a Minor Low Water status remains in place for the Rideau Valley Watershed under the Ontario Low Water Response Program. Watershed residents and

businesses are encouraged to conserve water during dry conditions. Temperatures have fallen in recent days and rainfall has increased, but the average 90-day rainfall measured at climate sta-

tions in and around the Rideau Valley Watershed remains below 80 per cent of normal for this time of year, which is a key indicator for Minor Low Water status. In the past 30 days, average rainfall has been just

above 80 per cent of normal. Looking ahead, the seven-day weather forecasts suggests we’ll experience normal temperatures and possibly some small amounts of rain. For the most part, water

levels in lakes and rivers are close to normal for this time of year, and this is expected to continue into the fall with lower evaporation rates compared to those of the warmer summer months.

Conservation Authority staff continue to monitor conditions and communicate with water managers throughout the watershed. Updates to this message will be issued as conditions warrant.

Friends are relatives you make for yourself

This article has a personal touch to it and I offer the following thought to other seniors. Maybe you, as a senior, have an appointment with a medical professional and are a little concerned about going - perhaps the thoughts of not absorbing all the details, like time or place of following

THis week,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

appointment(s), concerns you. There is nothing wrong with feeling like that! Many future appoint-

ments, whether with the same practitioner or another, have specific times and places as well as dates. There often is a lot to think about and usually in a short space of time. That is the reason I suggest that you have a friend go into the appointment with you - that way you can focus on talking to the doctor and really

listening. Sometimes it is necessary to make notes at appointments so a friend with you can take that pressure off. Maybe you don’t have a family member living close by - bury your pride and ask a friend. I think that life can be difficult. People have challenges. Family members get sick, people get older,

and you may have difficulties in your life. Life is about your resilience and your ability to go through your life and manage all of the ups and downs with a positive attitude. The best advice I would give to anyone going through a rough patch is to never be afraid to ask for help, talk to a friend. I

have and I am glad that I did and I’m appreciative of their assistance. Having a friend during a difficult appointment (medical or otherwise) is a good idea. “Friends are relatives you make for yourself.” (French poet Eustache Deschamps 600 years ago!)

5th KEVIN SAUNDERS MEMORIAL SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT Another amazing turnout for the Annual Kevin Saunders Memorial Softball tournament in Osgoode this past weekend. This tournament has been running for 25 years strong


WARD REPORT by Councillor George Darouze

with 100% of the proceeds being donated to Muscular Dystrophy Canada in Kevin’s name. Family, friends and many others have joined in over the year to show their support to the Saunders family playing their best ball on all diamonds for a full day tournament. I was touched by the number of people that continually support this fundraiser and the countless volunteers manning the BBQ, drink station as well as all the sponsors that donate prizes, food and drinks. Great community spirit and lots of fun moments not only for the Saunders family, but close friends also. I was happy to present the Saunders family and organizers with a certificate for their 25th year straight year. Carry on folks, wonderful job!

FIREFIGHTERS MEMORIAL DINNER I attended the Ottawa Fire Fighters Memorial Dinner Thursday evening with Council Colleagues Tim Tierney, Alan Hubley and Mayor Jim Watson, as many deceased members of the fire department were remembered for their years of service and dedication to the public. Among those mentioned was Capt. Tom Cavan from Osgoode Ward, with him family members in attendance. I was pleased to have seen Chief Paul Hutt and Chief Kim Ayotte supporting the fundraiser.

Peer helping a rewarding experience for St. Mark student

historical fiction.” Who are your favourite authors? – Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale & Alias Grace) – Agatha Christie (Murder on the Orient Express) – Charles Dickens (A Tale of Two Cities & Great Expectations) – Shakespeare (A Midsummer Night’s Dream & Macbeth) – J.K.

As I was in a leadership role, I was able to listen to everyone’s unique perspective, and teach them how to apply that on the somewhat challenging editing software we used to create the book. I am very passionate about yearbook, not only because it gives us a chance to create something that we are proud of, but also something that the whole school can enjoy. I believe all the effort the yearbook team put in has really paid off. I am very proud of all that we have accomplished, and I am excited to continue running the club this year, and start from scratch on a new book. Peer helping has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my high school career. In this club, you are paired with a middle school class, and your job is to help them out with their transition. I love helping my grade 8 class find their footing and prepare for high school. I hope that I can help them feel comfortable talking to me about anything they’re unsure of. Including but not exclusive to; classes that they should take, depending on their situation, studying and/ or exams, school involvement, etc. As part of my job as a peer helper, I’ve also stayed after school to help set up for parent teacher interviews, came to school early to set up for academic awards and the outdoor mass, and helped the new students find their way.

POTTER continues from page 17 Women’s Empowerment was a new club last year, dedicated to an open conversation about life as a woman, and different things we need to learn about, such as unrealistic body standards and shared struggles. In this club I always try to participate actively in discussions and debates, as well as listen and understand when others are discussing their own lives and the things that they are struggling with. This year I’ll also be running this club, along with faculty advisors. Many other clubs in my school community: Denreps (planning of school events; dances, charities, spirit theme days, etc.), Cultural Awareness (dedicated to educating everyone on subjects

like diversity, and discussing everyone’s unique culture), Globally Local (club dedicated to raising funds for various important causes, such as ovarian cancer, flooding, natural disaster relief, disadvantaged youth and families in our community, etc.). I also volunteer for many activities in the school that are unrelated to a specific club. For example: I’ve done photography at the senior prom and school dances for the past two years. Swimming: I was a swimmer for a long time. The past couple of years I was on the ROCS competitive swimming team – giving it up as a result of the heavy workload in Grade 11. However,

I helped coach the ⅞ Swim Team at our school this past year. The kids did great, winning over three quarters of the races we participated in. I love to read. When I was younger I used to read two or three books a week, but now with school, and how busy I can be, it’s harder to find time for recreational reading. I love music. My preferences are varied, and change depending on my mood. I have different playlists for things like studying to help me focus, for study breaks to help me relax, and for exercise to get me excited and moving.” Why do you get Involved in what you do? “I wasn’t always as in-

volved in school and my community as I am now. I was really shy in middle school and early high school. I didn’t join any clubs or participate much at all. After feeling left out in Junior High, I decided to join in and participate as much as possible, and I loved it! Being a part of clubs and community events have made me realize that I am very social, and enjoy interacting with lots of people. I want to be a loyal and helpful friend to everyone. It’s great to feel like you’re making a positive impact on your friends and community. Joining in helps me push my own boundaries, learn new things about myself, and gives me a great sense of accomplishment and

pride.” Career Goals: “I’m planning on going to university for a BA (Bachelor of Arts) in Psychology. I want to go to either Queens, OttawaU, or Carleton, so that I can stay close to my family. Eventually I would like to be a teacher or a professor. This plan could change tomorrow!” People that inspire me: My Grandma: My grandma’s name is Betty (Elizabeth) Egner, and she is one of the strongest people I know. I’ve always looked up to her ever since I was a little girl. We have a lot in common. We both love to read, and we are both determined. I love her so much. She is writing

a memoir about her life, and hearing about it from her has made me realize that her life was so inspiring and amazing. She is my idol. I have had many great teachers throughout high school: Mrs. Giroux (Biology), Mme Swerdfeger (French), Mme Gadea (World Religion), Mr. O’Neil (Math), and Mrs. Bain (Anthropology, Psychology, and Sociology). These teachers have shaped me in different ways, and have really helped me in figuring what to do after high school. I chose these teachers, because these are teachers that I truly felt comfortable with, who are approachable, understanding, and helpful.”

PHARMACY Q: I haven’t been sleeping. Is there something that can help me sleep tonight? A:

Insomnia is described as a frequent, reduced quality or quantity of sleep which then affects daytime functioning. The goal each night is to get to sleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling rested Pharmacist in the morning. However, there are many factors that contribute to insomnia such as pain, anxiety, depression, shift work, a noisy environment, caffeine or food. Consider trying these tips first -- During the day, avoid napping and excessive resting. Incorporate some form of exercise each day. Reduce caffeine and alcohol consumption. Eat an early supper. Have a consistent bedtime routine: relax, turn off electronics, have a bath, read a book. And then wake up around the same time every morning. Sleep is important to daytime mood and productivity so seek advice if needed. Ask your pharmacist or doctor to help select an overthe-counter option or prescription medicine suitable for you.

Q: Do you know how to maximize your dental insurance?

Q: Are animals allergic to insect bites?

A: Not all, but many dental insurance plans are from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. If you have not reached your yearly maximum, check with your dentist. If you do not use all of your insurance for the year, the remaining balance does not carry over to the next insurance year – it is lost! This is a great opportunity to consider doing cosmetic treatment or larger treatment that you may have been considering. Your dentist can send an estimate to your insurance company and within a few weeks you will know the portion your insurance company is going to cover. Call your insurance carrier for details about your plan. If you need further assistance with the dental terminology, call your dental office

A: They can be. Allergic reactions are varied from mild local redness and irritation to anaphylactic responses. Some dogs or cats are more sensitive than others. Ants tend to cause small bites on the belly. Dr. Andrew Sparling Wasps and bees can also cause D.V.M. local problems or more significant swelling which may become urgent depending on location and severity. Fleas usually are just locally irritating but some animals suffer from a disease know as Flea Allergy Dermatitis which can be horrifically itchy and cause the animal to self traumatize. Treatments depend on the animal, the bug in question and the level of the immune response to the bite. Talk to your veterinary care team about options for your pet if you are concerned about insects in your area.

Royals take on Vikings to open CCHL 2 season Fri., Sept. 22 in Casselman

The Richmond Royals will open their 2019-20 Central Canada Junior Hockey League 2 season Thurs., Sept. 19 as they travel to Casselman to face the Casselman Vikings. The Royals will host the Winchester Hawks Sun., Sept. 22 at the Goulbourn Rec Centre with a 1:30 p.m. face-off. They visit the Ottawa Canadians at the Ear. Armstrong

Arena Sept. 24, and then head to Renfrew Fri., Sept. 27 to face the Timberwolves. “Our expectations are for a big improvement from last year,” Couturier said. “We have gone two years straight with few returning players and this year we have the opportunity to have quite a few players back in our lineup and we are excited about that

for many reasons. They know what to expect and we know what to expect from them. They also have built up team chemistry to start the season. I expect to compete in every game and to be in a playoff position throughout the year.” The Royals’ first game back in Richmond will be Sun., Oct. 6 at 1:30 p.m. when they host the Athens Aeros.
