Ontario extends long-term care funding to ensure quality care for patients

On Friday September 20, the Minister of Long-Term Care announced that after consulting with stakeholders, including the Osgoode Care Centre in Metcalfe, Ontario is extending the High Wage Transition Fund and the Structural Compliance Fund while it works on developing new programs to improve how long-term care is delivered in Ontario. The government heard from stakeholders that minor capital is needed to help maintain long-term care homes. To address this, the government will be extending the Structural Compliance Premium to March 31, 2020, while it launches consultations this Fall on what a new minor capital program could look like. The government is also extending the High Wage Transition Fund to December 31, 2020, as it develops a long-term care staffing strategy.

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

“The transitional extension of these funding streams is to ensure that gaps in long-term care staffing and funding can be addressed, while we work to modernize and increase access for long-term care in Ontario” said the Minister of Long-Term Care. “Today’s announcement is an example of how our government is responding to the long-term care sector’s needs and fulfilling our commitment to build a 21st century long-term care system that meets the needs of Ontario’s most vulnerable people.” Ontario is continuing to work with the long-term care sector to ensure the system is responsive to

the needs of Ontarians by increasing access and reducing waitlists, while also maintaining patient safety and ensuring high standards of care.

Quick Facts The High Wage Transition Fund (HWTF) was introduced on April 1, 1996, as a three-year temporary transition measure to assist operators to maintain equitable service levels, while higher than average wage costs were addressed. The HWTF will conclude on December 31, 2020. The Structural Compliance Premium (SCP) was introduced on April 1, 1998, to allow the Ministry of Long-Term Care to pay long-term care home operators, who were not eligible at the time to receive other financial assistance from the ministry, so that they could upgrade their homes.

The SCP will conclude on March 31, 2020. The government has invested $72 million more this year than last year in Ontario’s long-term care system – money to support more beds, nursing and personal support care, and programs and services for residents and families. The government is also investing $1.75 billion to create 15,000 new longterm care beds and upgrade an additional 15,000 older beds to modern design. Currently, hospitals across the province have received a minor capital fund from the province for many years, which longterm care homes have not.

Trudeau delivers passionate and positive message to Carleton Liberals

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Carleton Liberal candidate Chris Rodgers meet and greet supporters along Manotick Main Street Mon., Sept. 9. By Jeff Morris Politics aside, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau summed his positive campaign message up in one sentence to Carleton Liberal supporters. “We’re going to have more than our opponents,” he said to loud cheers. “We’re focusing on little things, not on personal attacks, trying to distract from the big issues. We will stay focused on what matters to Canadians. What matters to Canadians is a strong, growing economy with a real and fair chance for everyone to succeed.” Hundreds of supporters were shoe-horned into the Carleton Federal Liberal cam-

paign headquarters of candidate Chris Rodgers, and hundreds more lined the sidewalks of Manotick Main Street as the Prime Minsiter arrived in Manotick Mon., Sept. 9. The Prime Minister gave his local supporters a Costco-sample of his campaign message that will be rolled out across the country during the 2019 election campaign. As the anxious crowd awaited the Prime Minister’s arrival, Rodgers addressed the large crowd with a positive and hopeful message. Afterward, music thumped through the room and at one point, the gathering sang and danced along to “YMCA.” The Carleton riding is an

important one to the Prime Minister, as it was one the Liberal wave could not penetrate in 2015. Rodgers came within 2,000 votes of knocking off incumbent Pierre Poilievre, a Cabinet Minister in the Harper Government and one of Trudeau’s toughest critics in the House of Commons. In the previous three elections, Poilievre’s vote totals were among the highest in Canada. The Prime Minster arrived in the building to a thunderous applause. Upon taking the microphone at the podium, he immediately proclaimed that the Liberals were the party that would fight for the middle class. He also wasted no time in putting the environ-

ment and the health of small businesses at the forefront. “Yes, we need to grow the economy, but we also need to protect the environment,” Trudeau said the cheers from the crowd. “And yes, we need for our small businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive and survive and build and grow, but we also need to take care of each other. And that’s why, over the past four years, Canadians have created over a million new jobs while at the same time lifting over 900,000 Canadians out of poverty.” Trudeau added that of the 900,000 Canadians taken out of poverty, 300,000 of them are children. He said that happened because of the Canada

Child Benefit. “It was a measure that we put forward that the Conservatives fought against in the 2015 campaign,” he said, sparking many in the room to yell, “Shame.” Trudeau also talked about Canada on the international level, including the new NAFTA deal. “We knew that we could do better, and that’s exactly what we were able to do,” he said. He also delivered a positive message that touched Canadian pride. “Canada is an extraordinary country. We have overcome great challenges in the past, and we will do so again

by pulling together by remaining positive and by doing the hard work,” he said. “What we need to ensure Canadians do, is remain true to who we are as a people and as a country – positive, optimistic, ambitious, generous, compassionate, hard working, but always ready to believe that better is always positive.” After his speech, the Prime Minister joined Rodgers as they met hundreds of supporters both inside the campaign headquarters and along the sidewalk. Trudeau met and shook hands with numerous Carleton Liberal supporters, and as expected, posed with individuals and family for numerous selfies.

The MessengerLETTERS Braid says Conservatives have experienced a seismic shift in ideology The Editor, What on earth is going on with the Conservative Party of Canada? If what Pierre Poilievre has written recently in the Manotick Messenger is any indication, the party has apparently experienced a seismic shift in political ideology—one which may someday be described in the history books as

the “Great Leap Leftward.” The first indication appeared in Mr. Poilievre’s July 7 message to his constituents. Suddenly gone was any talk of balancing the budget within two years—now the party would be taking a “measured and responsible approach to restoring fiscal responsibility.” This apparently means that the Conservatives,

if elected, are promising to run deficits for the entire four years of their mandate. Isn’t that exactly what Justin Trudeau did for the last four years? Have the Conservatives abandoned the fiscally-conservative turf to Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party, which is now the only party promising to eliminate the deficit in two years?

Medals available for veterans of World War II, Korean War

The Editor, I would like to inform your readers about two very special medals that are available for our veterans. These are the National Order of the Legion of Honour from France and the Ambassador for Peace Medal from the Republic of Korea. Our veterans of the Second World War and the Korean War have both fought hard and made tremendous sacrifices, and they have both won the greatest level of respect and thanks we can give them. The Government of France is awarding their highest medal to

all living Canadian veterans who directly helped to liberate their country between June 6 and August 30, 1944. The Republic of Korea is presenting its Ambassador for Peace Medal to all Canadian Veterans who participated in the Korean War and its peace keeping operations between 1950 and 1955. Living veterans or the families of veterans who have passed away may be eligible to receive this special medal from Korea. If you are a veteran or know someone that is, and who might be eligible for one of these important med-

als, please contact me. I am an unofficial volunteer who is willing to help you with your application. There is no fee involved. For more information please contact Mr. Guy Black C/O 515 - 95 Moody Street, Port Moody, BC V3H0H2 or email Korea19501953@yahoo. com and include the subject “Veterans Medals”. Thank you, Guy Black Recipient, Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation and the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers

Pierre’s August 2, 2019 message was even more of an eye-opener. This time, he was explaining how his party intended to “take on climate change.” Mercifully, readers were spared any of the all-tofamiliar right-wing rhetoric suggesting that Climate Change is a phony crisis invented by greedy climate scientists looking for funding—now, suddenly it’s a very real problem that requires a actual solution. Interestingly, that solution, according to Mr. Poilievre, hinges largely on a promised “green homes tax credit,” which would even include “the installation of solar panels.” I’m sure Dalton McGuinty would approve! Andrew Scheer has even bragged that the party’s 60-page climate plan is Canada’s “best chance” to meet its Paris targets. Mr. Poilievre went completely off the rails in his August 30 message. One can only assume that Conservative party policy is written by young people with no knowledge of history, because this one was

utterly bizarre. Poilievre was describing the lack of pipelines going from west to east and the problems associated with western oil being sold at a huge discount to Americans while eastern Canadians pay top dollar for Saudi crude. The solution, according to the Conservative party, is to create an “energy corridor” so that pipelines could be built to supply western oil to eastern Canadians, and “Canadians could sell energy to each other.” Older Canadians will immediately recognize that Poilievre is essentially describing Pierre Trudeau’s National Energy Program, which would have led to Canada’s independence from foreign suppliers as Alberta oil would have been sold to other Canadians. Had Trudeau’s vision been realized, the pipelines that Albertans are now crying for would have been built 40 years ago and all the fiscal problems associated with the boom and bust cycle of world oil prices would have largely been avoided. The idea that Poilievre—a Calgarian

born and raised—would be offering up reheated Liberal policy from the 1970s as the solution to Alberta’s current fiscal challenges is nothing short of surreal. If that wasn’t bad enough, Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives, who all voted against Justin Trudeau’s middle-class tax cut in 2015, are actually running this time on a promise to introduce a middle-class tax cut! Combine that with a guarantee of four more years of deficits and the Conservative platform of 2019 sounds disturbingly like the Trudeau platform of 2015. They do say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! Andy Braid, Kars Ed. Note – An election is coming up, here we go again. So as the Conservatives go back and forth with Andy Braid, let’s not end up talking about Denmark’s gross national product like we did last time around.

Task Force’s draft of Revitalization of the Village Core Plan to be done soon Thank you to all the individuals who provided feedback to the Task Force on Revitalization of the Village Core on its proposed draft plan. The comments on the priorities have been positive and we will be finalizing the plan with greater detail about action plans in the coming weeks. The main priorities include sprucing up the facades on Main Street buildings, developing an information package to help new businesses interested in setting up in Manotick, improving parking and pedestrian access and improving communications about community events. We are already seeing many positive changes on Main Street including the refresh of some of the buildings, signposts on Main Street identifying businesses along side streets, the new Business Section sign, new plantings at the Gateway at Bridge and Main, a new Community Events board at Watson’s Mill and the installation of a speed board heading south from Bridge Street. Many of this are a result of the Main Street Revitalization grant program offered through the City of Ottawa.


VOICE by Grace Thrasher, President, Manotick Village and Community Association (MVCA)

The Manotick BIA hopes that new garbage cans and lighting at the Gateway will be in place soon. There are more improvements to come but we are definitely going in the right direction! You can read the draft plan, along with background information, at www.manotickvca.org/village-corerevitalization If you have thoughts about things that we missed, please let us know! If you are interested in helping out with the implementation of the Revitalization Plan, contact us at president@manotickvca.org

Thank you to our volunteers! Any community event requires many people to make it happen. The recent Soap Box Derby and Picnic in the Park happened because more than 75 local residents came out to set up barricades and cones, manage registration,

help to keep the carts moving from bottom of the hill to the top, serve food, make cotton candy and popcorn, organize multiple children’s activities and shuck corn. Our organizing committees start planning months in advance and a small group of about 10 people ensure that things go off without a hitch. Without these volunteers, these events would not happen, so I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped with the organization and the delivery of these events. A special thank you goes to MVCA VP of Events Theresa Roberts and Committee Chairs Jan Hynes, Allan Haan and Mehran Aliahmad. I would also like to thank the City of Ottawa for its support through a grant that allowed us to offer free food and activities this year and the many local businesses who sponsored these events. We can always use more help so please consider giving a few hours of your time for these events and for our upcoming Shiverfest next January. If you are interested in volunteering a couple of hours of your time, contact me at president@ manotickvca.org

Around the Village

Community Events

The pounding of rocks in Phase 2 of Mahogany has been creating a ton of noise and dust this summer for residents in the south end of the Village. The good news is that the work is close to being completed. Minto spokespeople say that efforts to move the pile closer to Century Road (and away from residences in the south end of the Village) require the breaking up of larger rocks. Minto expects that the move will be completed by October 4. Catch local vendors at one of the last few Saturdays for the Farmer’s Market. The Market closes on October 12th. Watson’s Mill will also close for the season on the following Monday, October 15th. The newly paved Rideau Valley Drive South is a dream to drive now that is done. The last project to be completed is the replacement of two culverts at the ends of Kelly Marie Drive, slated to happen this fall.

Ride for ROSSS Charity Motorcycle Ride, September 28, 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. This fundraiser is centred on a 160 km charity poker run for motorcycle enthusiasts to Merrickville, Montague and Richmond.

You can still support the cause by buying a $15 ticket to the BBQ which will take place at the end of the motorcycle run. More info: www.rosss.ca

Budget time most important time of the year at City Hall

The budget is the most important item of business each year at Ottawa City Hall, every program and service provided by the City is impacted by the process. When it comes to taxpayer-funded services, I believe it is vital for those who are paying to understand how they are funded. If you find it confusing, you’re not alone. The 2020 Draft Budget, already approved at Committee, shows the impact of poor planning and bad luck. The Ontario Government has cancelled critical funding that the previous Council budgeted to pay for LRT, and is cutting funding to core services like Ottawa Public Health. That should be a lesson moving forward, we can’t budget on promises made by another government. For years, Ottawa has relied heavily on debt to support its infrastructure spend-


WARD REPORT by Carole Anne Meehan

ing. The cost of continually borrowing has begun to impact annual expenditures. Here’s how. In 2019, Finance Staff anticipated the cost of servicing Ottawa’s debt and the contributions to the Sinking Fund, which is a fund containing money set aside to pay off debt, to be $349 million. If you think that sounds like a lot, it is. If debt servicing were its own department, the City would spend about the same as it does on Fire Service, Roads and, Ottawa Public Health that is does not debt. That should be a wake-up

call to taxpayers. Between 2017 and 2019, the City borrowed $302 million to help pay for LRT. What many at City Hall might not know, is that $302 million loan matures in 2047, 28 years from now. The interest we will have paid over the term is $284.7 million. Total cost to taxpayers, principal and interest, $586.7 million. And that’s just one loan. From 2019 to 2022 the City has forecasted a total debt servicing obligation plus Sinking Fund contributions of $1.4 billion. That is Billion with a “B”! The City’s net debt stands at a whopping $2.4 billion, and this will continue to rise every year. Cash is tight; spending is up, and LRT stage 2 construction is set to start. The City’s debt is rising, and tax increases are coming.

The story behind Bray Station and Flag Station Road

The first record of the “Bytown & Prescott Railway” was in October of 1850, when a public meeting was held in Bytown, proposing a railway between Bytown and Prescott. Work began about a year later starting at both ends, Bytown and Prescott. However, construction was much slower than expected and it wasn’t until Christmas Day of 1854 when the first train arrived in Bytown from Prescott. The name was changed to the “Ottawa and Prescott Railway” in 1855, then to the “Saint Lawrence and Ottawa Railway” in 1867. Eventually, in 1884, the “Canadian Pacific Railway” took over, and continued to operate the line for 113 years – until November of 1997, when the last train ran the tracks. Now, even the tracks are gone! Along the River Road towards Osgoode, about a kilometre past St. Brigid Church, is a street sign for “Flag Sta-

tion Road.” Many years ago, at the other end of the road, if one wanted to flag down or stop the passenger or freight train going to or from Ottawa, you could do so and it would stop. Some years ago the Charles Bray family owned a farm that ran from the Rideau River back to the railway tracks, parallel to the road that went to the flag station – thus, the reason the road became known as Flag Station Road and the stop as Bray Station. The Bray family lived in the log home on River Road at the corner of Flag Station Road; Bray Station was about half way between Osgoode

Jennifer is a “one woman band” working at identifying and saving many ancient fruit trees that grow on farms and roadsides in Lanark and surrounding counties. If you have such a tree, bring in some fruit so it can be identified and be part of the tasting section of the

presentation. Take in the Fall Flower Show and enjoy refreshments and home baking after the talk. Bring your own mug for refreshments and help reduce the landfill.

and Manotick Station. At the tracks was a small shed, so the farmer or passenger would have shelter until the train came along. They would wave at the engineer and the train would stop. Local men who farmed in

the area of Flag Station Road, told me about going back to the station when they were young, with cans of cream to ship to the dairy in Ottawa, and remembered that they would often find a tramp or hobo asleep in the shed.

Not the pretty picture taxpayers thought it was. Its time to take an honest look at Ottawa’s budget. If we want better services, we must demand better use of our tax dollars. In February of this year, Mayor Watson had this to say about borrowing for LRT Stage 2

The MessengerRICHMONDHUB.CA Some Richmond residents not happy with Mattamy’s development name By Richmond Hub Staff A recent post on a local community Facebook page has brought to light the sensitivity and importance of place names. They are undeniably part of our identity, sense of place and belonging as a community. While it is true that Richmond is the “legal” name of the village of Richmond the “village” roots run much deeper. “So Mattamy is calling their new development Richmond Village,” wrote a local resident on Facebook. “For some reason I feel really annoyed about that.” This post not only raised the interest and ire of a lot of local residents, but some thoughtful comment as well. More than a hundred comments flowed very quickly with many residents phoning the local sales office to lodge their concerns. Suggestions for alternate names for the new development were made along with the suggestion of holding a naming contest. (No word from Mattamy on any plans for a name change.) The most serious concerns relate to the confusion that will be created by naming the new development Richmond Village and the sense that, whether intended or not, a form of corporate “identity theft” is underway on the heels of the village’s bicentennial. To understand this, one needs to consider that in the minds of the nearly 5,000 residents of the village, “Richmond Village” is the much loved and de facto name applied on a daily basis to the community as a whole. You need look no fur-

ther than the incorporated name of the community association, Richmond Village Association Inc., to get a sense of the importance of the name as a descriptor of the community as a whole. Local businesses serving the community such as the Richmond Village Pharmacy, Richmond Village Eye Care and Richmond Village Dental and many events carry the Richmond Village moniker as well … you get the picture. Notwithstanding the fact the “legal” name of the community is Richmond this is one of those instances where the de facto name “Richmond Village” is in common use. Most residents who have spoken out feel that should be respected by Mattamy Homes and the City. “I could not see how the City would allow Richmond Village be used to describe a section of Richmond Village,” added anbother concerned resident on Facebook. “It would be like naming a development in Kanata … Kanata. Someone at Mattamy definitely out of touch with the area that they (are) building in and the significance of the name to the whole of Richmond.” On another note, existing residents of Richmond want to be welcoming to any new residents. In this vein, concerns were expressed that controversy over names isn’t a good thing when it could so easily be avoided. The existing residents of Richmond Village today are not likely to stop using the historic name … the question of who is on first, who is on third will likely

come up needlessly as a potential point of friction in the future community. Residents recognize the need to grow and are looking to new developments to sell the “village” and all it has to offer. They simply want it done in a way

that is respectful to the long history of the village. They don’t want the village to become just another sprawling suburb with no sense of community or history. The Village was founded over 200 years ago and

was first incorporated as a “village” in 1850 with the passage of the Municipal Act. Let’s hope that the folks at Mattamy listen to the calls they have been getting and take the appropriate steps to respect the application of the name

Richmond Village to the larger community. In the end, the buyers of homes by Mattamy within Richmond Village will be our new neighbours who, like us, will want to learn about and share in the rich history of Richmond Village.

Hearing Loss or Selective Hearing? There is only one way to find out….undergo a hearing assessment! All joking aside, a hearing assessment is an invaluable part of your overall health review. Much like eyes and teeth, ears should also be looked at regularly. This is particularly important now that studies have shown links between untreated hearing loss and memory, cognition, falls, social engagement, annual earnings and depression, not to mention its impact on your relationships. There is no doubt you will want to be proactive with even the slightest hearing loss! Hearing is surprisingly complex and individualized and so finding that right solution is not as simple a process as one might think. The good news is that there are many manufacturers allowing for a great variety of solutions to meet the multitude of unique hearing needs. The key to success is a thorough assessment followed by a customized solution. Offering just that is Hearing Freedom, a locally owned,

grown, and operated clinic. Their grass-roots approach is unfortunately rare in today’s retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. The unique and refreshing approach that sets Hearing Freedom apart from other providers was established nearly 20 years ago by Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology. After many local interviews for employment, she was disheartened to discover the same thing at each establishment; the interview had nothing to do with her knowledge and skills, they rather focused on the number of hearing aid units she was expected to sell and the company’s affiliation to a given Manufacturer. “That was not my idea of proper hearing health care,” says McNamee. “I came into this profession to improve my patients’ quality of life. I wanted to focus on my patients’ needs, not sales. I wanted to be able to consider everything available to them in the market, not just the product lines that provided my employer the biggest profit margins. I

wanted to treat my patients the way I expect to be treated by my healthcare professionals… consideration for all treatment plans and choosing the one that is best, for me, the unique individual that I am.” And so she decided to set up her own business, doing it her way and putting patients first. At Hearing Freedom, the patient is an active part of the whole process and there is no predetermined product or plan. Each and every patient’s intervention plan is truly as unique as they are. The experience begins with a very thorough hearing assessment which is followed by a detailed needs assessment. Then, the Audiologist will take the time to research the market, considering ALL makes and models, so as to select the right product for that specific patient. This is followed by a 90-day trial period. This extensive trial gives patients the confidence that they have the right solution for them, their lifestyle and their unique hearing needs. In addition, there are no Hearing Instrument Practitio-

ners or Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Freedom. Patients are rather seen by bilingual Audiologists, University trained clinicians qualified to service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WCB, VAC, etc). “Not only is hearing complex, so are today’s hearing aids,” McNamee explains. “And Manufacturers differ in what they offer. Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.” At Hearing Freedom you can be certain that you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs. So, if you believe in your right to the best, fullest and most customized service available, make sure you book your appointment with Hearing Freedom. You will not regret your short drive to Manotick. Parking is free. Home visits optional. Wheelchair Friendly. For more information visit www.HearingFreedom.com

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT Public meeting on zoning for proposed Roger Stevens Dr. warehouse Oct. 17

In recent columns, I have mentioned a community information meeting to discuss Broccolini’s Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments for 1966 Roger Stevens Drive. Unfortunately, we needed to reschedule that meeting to give the City and the applicant more time to prepare. The rescheduled community information meeting date has now been set for Thursday, October 17th from 7:00 to 9:00pm at the Alfred Taylor Recreation Center in North Gower. City planning staff and the applicant, Broccolini, will join me at this meeting. The subject application involves the property on the southwest corner of Roger Stevens Drive and Highway 416. This site had previously been designated for industrial and highway commercial uses. Through that application, parameters were set on building heights, land use and so on. Included in that approved plan were also several residential lots along Third


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

Line Road. The application before us now seeks to alter two specific elements. The most straightforward request is the desire of the applicant to increase the permitted height on the property from 15m to 30m. To give you some sense of that height on this property, the existing silo sits on the top of the hill at just under 20m. The proposed development would see a levelling of that area meaning the proposed height is approximately the height of the silo today. The other request is to make the property one zone. As it stands now, the site is split into three zones. Over 90% of the property is zoned for industrial and commercial

uses. Both permit the building of a warehouse. A small portion right in the middle of the property does not permit warehouse as a use. As a result, the applicant wishes to alter that to permit a warehouse on the entire property. At the community information meeting, the applicant will focus on the differences between the current zoning and what their request is. Briefly, a large scale industrial warehouse development is already a permitted use. The big change here is one taller building rather than many smaller buildings. Both would have an impact on transportation, nearby properties and the environment. Regardless of what is built here, these are concerns that residents have and the meeting will be an opportunity to discuss those concerns and understand how they can be or are being addressed. If you have any comments or questions about this application, please feel free to

contact myself or the Planner, Jeff Ostafichuk at Jeffrey. Ostafichuk@ottawa.ca.

The Eastern Ontario Pleasure Driving Society is a local club which promotes carriage driving for all horse and pony enthusiasts.

The club members enjoyed driving on their property which included a dressage

ring, a 4 km. Trail through a wooded area and a field of obstacles. These included such things as a water hazard, a cones course, a bridge, a hay bale serpentine, a “u” , a noodle car wash, a maze, a mail box stop, and a wooden cartoon of Daisy the cow. Some proved to be quite challenging! Following two hours of driving everyone gathered

under a huge maple tree for a social time and some delicious food. A good time was had by all! Two more drives are planned for the Fall season.

Manotick BIA, MPCRA officially open Mahogany Dock in village The new Mahogany Dock in Manotick has been a huge success. “I have received a large number of positive emails regarding the docks,” said Manotick BIA Executive Director Donna Smith at the BIA’s

September meeting. The dock was officially launched Sat., Aug. 17 just before the start of the BIA’s A Taste of Manotick promotion in the village. The Mahogany Dock Initiative was first imagined in

1995 through an extensive community visioning exercise. The Journey since then has not been without its challenges. Moving forward, it’s hoped that both local residents and visitors will come to appreciate and enjoy the

amenities at the new Mahogany Harbour Landing and its many benefits for the Village. “Every time I go to the docks, it’s a different experience,” Smith said. “It’s really added something special to the village. It’s very encouraging.”

Last week, a special ribbon cutting ceremony for the Mahogany Dock took place. Present was Anne Robinson of the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association. She was a driving force behind making the dick a re-

ality, but she was unable to attend the launch in August as she was suffering from pneumonia. Along with Robinson, members of the Manotick BIA executive, as well as Manotick business and community leaders were present.

St. Mark student-athlete surrounded by positive and supportive friends Name: Rowan Hubbard Age: 17 School: St. Mark High Grade: 12 las

Parents: Sheila and Doug-

Brother: Trevor (21), thirdyear Nanotechnology engineering student at the University of Waterloo Pet Peeve: “People who don’t use turn signal lights.” Part-time Work: “I’ve been a cash supervisor at the Foodland in Osgoode for over a year, and it’s a really good job. Being a teenager, I was surprised with how much they trusted me, but they taught me so well, and it’s been a great opportunity. I love who I get to work with, and the people in the town are so nice.” Favorite Subjects: “English was always my favourite subject. I still like it, but once I got to the higher grades with more control over my courses, I started being able to take some business classes, and those ended up being more enjoyable for me. Intro to Business in grade 10 really got me into it, and I found my marketing class this past year so interesting and really fun. I find the psychology aspect of marketing cool, and enjoy getting to design ads and that type of stuff.” What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? “I really enjoy reading and caught up in books. I don’t usually read


YOUTH by Phill Potter

many during the school year, but in the summer I read a couple a week. That’s what I do on work breaks, and when I’m camping. I’ll read most types of fiction books, but draw the line at anything with vampires.” Who is your favourite author? “I read a wide variety of books. I can’t pick a specific favourite author, but two of my favourite books are The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (which my english teacher actually suggested for me, and I loved, even though it was angering at certain points), and Mosquitoland by David Arnold. I read that in just a couple of days, because I really got into it and needed to know how it ended.” What is your greatest accomplishment? “I’m really proud of getting MVP on my competitive basketball team, which is amazing, because I love playing so much. I also had the highest mark in my Marketing class this past year. It made me feel like I’m good at what I want to do.” Activities/Interests: “Reading, and in the summer, camping (a tent is the only way to go), but my favourite thing to do, is play basketball. I was on the school team, where we got to play in Disney. This was an awesome experience, and representing St. Mark

is great. For a competitive team, I’ve played with Ottawa South for nine years. I actually played on a boy’s team for the first two. I’m glad I did, but also really glad I got to play on a girls’ team after that. I’ve had my coach Ray for seven years. He was one of the reasons the sport is so fun for me. He really cares, and is so fun and positive, but pushed us when we needed it. Most of the girls were together for many years. They’re all such amazing, supportive people, who all love the sport and playing together. Away tournaments were my favourite, because I love going to different cities and hanging out in a hotel with the team. This year I’m really excited to be running the IMUM (I Matter U Matter) Mental Health Club with my friend Ave. The club is really important to me, and it’s great that we get to reach grade nines to help break down the stigma around mental illness when we do our presentations.I got involved with IMUM because of my friends, and because the presentations taught me a lot when I was in grade nine.” Why did you get involved in what you do: “Because it’s healthy, my parents really wanted me and my brother to play a sport, so they signed us both up for basketball. I’m really glad they made me stick with it for a full year, because at the very beginning I hated it.” Career Goals: “I really want to work in Marketing, but I hop around with what I want to do specifically. Right now

that’s Package Design, but it changes a lot. Although, I know that I want to go to university for Business, specifically at Brock. Their Business Program sounds cool. It has one option where you do your last two years co-op and school in one of three schools in Europe, and I really want to go to the one in Germany.” Comment: “I’m a pretty busy person, and the reason high school for me is doable and actually a fun time is because I have some of the best friends ever. Some go to my school where I’m lucky enough to see them every day. Some are further away, like one of my best friends who’s at a school in the States for hockey, but they are all always there for me. I learn so much from them, and seeing them excel makes me so proud to call them my friends. They’re all so supportive and make life so much better.”
