The MessengerCOMMUNITY Carleton Conversations: Ontario Autism Program Town Hall in Richmond On Thursday August 1st, I was pleased to host a town hall session regarding the Ontario Autism Program. I was joined by Jeremy Roberts, MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean. We had almost 40 participants joining us at the Richmond Legion. The purpose of the roundtable was to gather feedback from residents of Carleton and across Ottawa on what our government can do to create a system that works for families. Thank you to everyone who joined us that evening. It was a very informative session, and I was pleased to get so much feedback and constructive criticism. Ultimately, my role as your MPP is to be your voice at Queen’s Park, and this was a wonderful learning experience for me while at he same time ensuring that the residents of Carleton are provided with a meaningful opportunity to provide feedback to the govern-

Capital Fair at Rideau Carleton Raceway begins Aug. 16

The Capital Fair at Rideau Carleton Entertainment Centre is just around the corner. This year’s fair will be held from August 16-26 at RCR, located on Albion Road, northeast of Manotick. “Every year, the fair gets a little bit bigger and a little bit better,” said Capital Fair General Manager Harley Bloom. “We are a not-forprofit organization, so all the proceeds and revenues generated from the fair go back into the program. Each year, we try to build as big of a program as possible.” While the Capital Fair has filled the void left by the absence of the Central Canada Exhibition in Ottawa, the fair is not the old Ex relocated to the raceway. “A lot of people think that we are the old Ottawa Ex,” Bloom said. “The dates are similar, but in reality, this is a continuation of the old Gloucester Fair.”

In 1998, the Gloucester Fair relocated to Rideau Carleton Raceway after outgrowing its original location at the Earl Armstrong Arena. In 2014, the fair changed its name to become the Capital Fair. Bloom emphasized that the fair is an affordable event for the family. General admission is only $5, and allday ride bracelets, priced at $24.78 plus HST, are available in advance until Aug. 15 online at capitalfair.ca and at all Quickie stores. The midway, presented by World’s Finest Shows, will feature 30 rides and attractions and will be the largest in Eastern Ontario this year. A new feature at this year’s fair will be the National Capital Highland Games, which will feature Highland Games athletics competitions such as the hammer throw, caber toss, sheaf toss and tug of war It will also in-

clude Highland Dancing and Highland Pipe Bands competitions. The fair will also include four Monster Truck shows, the Ultimutts Stunt Dogs, the Canadian Raptor Conservancy Birds of Prey Show, a Canine Watersports Competition, an arm wrestling championship tournament, agricultural exhibits and demonstrations, the Xtreme Cowboy horse show, and the Rise 2 Fame Talent Show. The big stage will feature Ladies and Escorts Fri., Aug. 16, County Lads Aug. 17, Moseley Aug. 18, Gamut Aug. 23, and DJ EDM Aug. 24. “There is a lot for the kids this year,” said Bloom, who added that there is a kids tent as well as an agricultural pavilion. Bloom added that one of the most special days every year at the fair is the special needs day. Over the past dec-

How much more tax can people afford? Consider this: “The average Canadian family now spends more of its income on taxes (44.2%) than it does on basic necessities such as food, shelter, and clothing combined (36.3%),” reported the Fraser Institute’s Consumer Tax Index this week.

And Trudeau has raised them further—up $800/year per family. Payroll taxes? Up! Gas tax? Up! Income tax? Up! And if you need a drink after all those taxes, well, he’s raised taxes on beer and wine too. The cost of government is driving up the cost of living. Most people are getting by, but not getting ahead. Conservatives want government to live within its means, leave more in your pocket and let you get ahead. Here’s how:

Take GST off home heat;

Cancel the carbon tax to lower gas and grocery bills;

A Green Homes Tax Credit to help with environmentally-friendly home renos or appliances;

Lower taxes for small businesses.

A dollar in the hands of the person who earned it is always better used than a dollar in the hands of the politician who taxed it.

That is why I have been fighting in Parliament for you to keep more.

‘Unbirthday party’ a special event for kids often left out

Gibbon’s Painting & Decorating Local House Painter - Bonded With 27 years experience Customer Satisfaction

By Charlie Senack

Barrhaven’s first “Unbirthday Party” was a success. On Saturday, June 27, more than 100 local kids packed Larkin Park to celebrate their birthdays. The idea was initially started by Hamilton resident Nicole Callander, who’s now 19-year-old daughter Caitlin has Williamson Syndrome, a developmental disorder that affects many parts of the body. “Last year she was in grade 12 and was upset that she wouldn’t have the same milestones as typical kids in grade 12, so I asked friends and family members to send birthdays cards to her,” Callander said. “It went viral, and with those birthday cards I got hundreds of messages from parents who said my child never gets invited to birthday parties, and I felt bad, so for Caitlin’s birthday 18th birthday, I invited every child who has never been invited to a birthday party before. “ Over 200 kids from all across Ontario and the United States attended that party, and that’s when Nicole decided to form Friends 4 Kindness. This year they are planning four “Unbirthday Parties” across Ontario, including the one that was held in Larkin Park. It was organized by Barrhaven resident Rene Stewart who’s daughter also has a number of disabilities, and as a result has often been left out of being invited to parties. “She had ADHD, ODD, speech impairment, and she has a learning disability,” Stewart said. “It was always easy to get kids to come to her

birthday, but she just doesn’t get invited to birthday parties.” While the party was aimed towards making children with disabilities feel accepted, it was open to everyone. One of the main purposes of it was to show other kids that people with disabilities also have abilities, and they can do many off the same things. “Parents need to teach kids that just because some kids are special needs, they are no different,” Stewart says. “They still have feelings, they are just like you and me, and they still enjoy being a part of stuff like birthdays parties or any type of party. You need to teach kids to not be afraid to approach these kids and be friends with them.” The day featured a variety of carnival games that were donated by games to go. Little Rays reptiles also came out, alongside a princess, and a milking cow provided by the dairy education program. Some children were able to have their faces painted, and

others were able to do arts and crafts. The whole idea behind many of the stations was to get kids interacting with one another in an effort to get them out of their shell. The space at Larkin Park was generously donated by the city, and M&M provided

all the food. Rene says she hopes to bring the event back to Ottawa next summer, and plans to make it an even bigger hit. Anyone who wants to learn more about friends 4 kindness can visit: https://friends4kindness.ca/.

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT There should be no ‘sides’ or ‘opponents’ at the City Council table

In recent columns, I have focused on some of our recent decisions at City Hall and, in some instances, the controversy behind them. In two weeks, I will delve into the LRT Stage 2 contract. In that case, all of the focus is on the extension of the existing O-Train line into Riverside South and not the overall LRT east-west project. As background before I do that, though, I think it is important to spend a bit of time discussing Council themselves. This is not the same Council from the previous eight years and it is not even a Council similar to that during the Larry O’Brien years. This one is different and it is influencing much of the discussion that has been occurring outside of City Hall and on some of our biggest files. For those of you who may not remember, one of my key commitments when I ran for Council in 2010 was teamwork and cooperation at City Hall. To be clear, that does not just mean we should agree on everything and ignore debate. What it means to me is that we work together. This is not Provincial or Federal politics. There is no “Official Opposition”. We are all in power


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

and we all have the ability to contribute, if we choose to do so. When I look at examples of cooperation and collaboration, I think of where we ended up on the RideauCarleton Raceway file. On Stonebridge, I work with Jan Harder. On the climate emergency, I worked with Shawn Menard. On plastics, I worked with Catherine McKenney. On rural internet access, I worked with Jeff Leiper. On an initiative in Blackburn Hamlet, I worked with Jody Mitic and now Laura Dudas. When I hold budget consultations, I do so with George Darouze. This is how we get things done. We do not draw lines and pick sides. We work together, regardless of the issue and whom you are working with because we all represent the same people: the citizens of Ottawa. When we look at the last few months, and the issues I have been highlighting of late,

that commitment to cooperation is clearly not shared by all. Not every member of Council arrives at City Hall with the same motivations. Not every member of Council maintains the same beliefs throughout their time on Council. Factions form and divisions rise. One thing I remember Tobi Nussbaum saying to me early in the 2014-18 term of Council is that he was impressed at how we can all disagree on an item but then just move on and work together on the next item. Again, this is not that Council. How did we get here? During every election, there is an overarching sentiment. In 2010, it was the previous Council’s dysfunction. In 2018, it was the apparent lack of debate. As a reversal of why I was elected in 2010, some campaigned in 2018 on a notion of disruption. I would call this debate for the sake of debate. Instead of reports coming through Committee for proper consultation, debate and discussion, those items are coming directly to Council. There is no opportunity for community input through the Committee structure so it turns into a free for all at Council. Some members have decided there are two

distinct sides and they stick to it. That reality adds toxicity to our debates. One new member of Council was recently quoted as saying they are happy they are not on the Mayor’s “side.” Consider that the Mayor received more votes in their ward than they did. How does that desire to be an opponent make you representative of your constituents? Are we elected to represent or are we elected to pick sides? You may have different answers but mine has already been the same. We are here to represent regardless of who else is elected. The only real result of this entire situation is that every member of Council looks bad. There are times when what happens at Council is somewhat scripted. I will not pretend one side is worse than the other is. The current climate can only be fixed by a desire to move forward and work together. On issues like the Chateau Laurier and LRT Stage 2, some Councillors have knowingly stated misleading information. I will explain that in more detail when I get into the contract situation of Stage 2 LRT. At the end of this term of Council, those of us elected in 2010 will have been here for twelve years. That includes the

Mayor. What you are seeing at Council right now is more about 2022 than it is about anything. People are jockeying for position. They are looking to the Mayoralty in 2022. They are looking to win. Unfortunately, the result is that their constituents lose. We are not elected just to get re-elected. We are not elected to simply govern in four year increments. We are not elected to put ourselves above our jobs. We are elected to represent. We are elected to see beyond four year terms. We are elected to lead, not mislead. Thankfully, we still have time to make this term more effective. We just need to have enough members of Council, the Mayor included, willing to make the effort. I know I am.

1966 Roger Stevens Drive

Broccolini has submitted an official plan amendment and zoning by-law amendment for 1966 Roger Stevens Drive. The application can be reviewed on City’s Development Application Search Tool where you will find information about the application and all of the submitted plans, reports, surveys and accompanying documents you will need to review the ap-

plication. You can find this at Ottawa.ca/devapps. This is the property on the southwest corner of Highway 416 and Roger Stevens Drive. It was previously designated for industrial and commercial uses. This application is to alter the plan from multiple buildings totaling 1.4M square feet to instead build one building totaling 700,000 square feet. The proposal involves road modifications to Roger Stevens Drive including signalization and new turning lanes at the off and on ramps. The plan also includes the retention of the trees on the west side of the property forming a buffer between the building and the homes along Third Line Road that were created as part of this property’s original application approximately twenty years ago. At this point, the tenant is not confirmed. Broccolini has built distribution centres previously for Amazon, Target, Canadian Tire, Sobey’s and IKEA, among others. As they get further in the process, they will likely be in a position to secure a tenant and disclose that. There will be a public meeting about this application and I will be sure to provide notification when it is scheduled.

City staff walk about of Village Core produces results

Councillor Scott Moffatt brought out a number of City managers responsible for transportation, traffic safety and sidewalk maintenance in late July to review the state of the Village sidewalks as well as to discuss safety issues relating to the intersection at Bridge and Main and other areas. As a result, a number of the sidewalks have been shaved down to enable wheelchairs, walkers and strollers to move more smoothly through-


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

out the core and some uneven sod next to new sidewalks on Mill Street has been levelled. A number of pedestrian safety issues were also identified relating to sidewalk holes, the narrow sidewalk along Currier, speeding along Dickinson Street and the absence of audible sidewalk signals at Bridge and Main. The City was also going to follow up with the contractors who had left holes at various corners following the installation of fibre optic cable earlier this year. The group also discussed longer term issues such as the extension of the sidewalk to the Mahogany Harbour dock and a pathway along Main Street to Century Road. They also discussed the possibility of an additional crosswalk on Main Street. The MVCA will be following up with Councillor Moffatt on possible solutions to these long term needs.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Sitting on the Dock of the Bay – or Manotick’s Mahogany Harbour! Summer’s heat is rising, too rapidly for some, long overdue for others. In search of refreshment Canadians seek the cool waters of the rivers and lakes and all things wet. Water slide parks, backyard pools and sprinklers ease the sultry day’s sticky humidity, while cleansing weary and troubled souls. The songs of summer include “Summertime and the living is easy”, “Surf City”, “Summer Place”; all inviting us to enjoy “Summer Winds”. Another song of summer is Otis Redd-

ing’s “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay”. The song’s story is a parable for all seeking renewal this summer. The story of how Redding became inspired to write this summer classic is interesting to say the least. He had come from Memphis to San Francisco in 1967 and rented a houseboat just across the bay from the great city by the bay. He played his guitar and sang at the midnight closing performance at the Monterey Pop Festival followed later that night by another performance at the


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

Filmore Auditorium. Otis Redding was on his way to music stardom. Back on his floating home he gazed out on the cityscape and began strumming the guitar as the tune came to him and he found himself sitting in the morning sun. A few days later Otis returned to Memphis,

recorded the song and the rest is history. Three days later Otis Redding died in a plane crash. His song “The Dock of the Bay” became the first posthumous #1 record in history and tragically Redding’s only #1 hit. This summer let your spirit muse and wonder and dream. Find a favourite re-

freshing place and listen to the music of creation as it surrounds you; could be at a campground, the Mill or Mahogany Harbour in Manotick or somewhere else! Sing with family and friends; remember those great summertime moments that fill your life story; make some new moments to remember, whistle a song and think of Otis. The Official Mahogany Harbour Dock Launch Ceremony takes place at 4pm August 17th. featuring live music by “Mystic Circle” from 3pm to 4pm The

ceremony is part of “The Taste of Manotick” event that takes place from 4pm til 8pm on August 17th.

The MessengerNEWS Stonebridge residents presented plan concerning golf course future By Charlie Senack

Residents of Stonebridge are beginning to feel like they are one step closer to finding common ground with Mattamy Homes as potential development on the golf course is becoming more likely. On Tuesday, July 30, a few hundred Stonebridge residents packed the gym of St. Joseph High School in Barrhaven to see for the first time a proposed plan for development on the par 70 course. The fight started last June when Mattamy Homes put a phase 16 application forward to the city, requesting that 156 new homes be built on a section of the championship status course. After countless public meetings filled with animosity toward the developers, the three city councillors for the wards that touch on the course asked Mattamy Homes to withdraw their application. Now more than a year later, Mattamy plans to submit a new application, but this time is listening to the residents’ con-

cerns. A working group made up of a handful of Stonebridge residents was created earlier this year in an effort to ease tensions between the two sides, and to find a solution. Under the new plan which was released in a 25-page report at Tuesday’s meeting, Mattamy would still build those 156 new homes, but would commit to no further development on the course. They also promise to operate the course in its current state for at least ten years, and has a plan in place in case they decide to put their golf clubs away. That would require Mattamy to give the community association at least two years notice, and the option to purchase the golf course — which sits on 198 acres of land — for $6 million, a price that would not change even if it was after ten years from now. In order to prepare for that potential purchase, residents would need to start paying into a nine-year city-administered levy which could cost the homeowners anywhere from

$175 to $475 annually — depending on the value of their home. This would mean that the city would own the land, but would prevent any further development on the course, one of the top concerns for many of Stonebridge’s residents. It would also mean the land could only be used as a golf course or for green space. While many residents still have questions, they feel this is the best option they are going to get. Ralph March has been living in Stonebridge for the past 12 years, and is sad to see any development on the course. Still, he said he walked out of Tuesday’s meeting feeling a sign hope, encouraged by the two sides finding a common ground. “I was relieved,” March said. “I have to appreciate the fact that the people on the committee gave a lot of their own time to find a compromise. I think it was probably the best they could do. I’m in favour of the proposal because they couldn’t come to a resolution to find no building on the golf course — which of

Stonebridge residents packed the gymnasium at St. Joseph High School to hear Mattamy’s new plan for the future of the golf course and the planned construction which will lead to the modification of the course. Charlie Senack photo course would have been everyone’s preferred solution.” And when it comes to the proposed levy which is still causing a lot of confusion for many of the residents, March said he’s all for it saying it means the golf course would be saved in the scenario where Mattamy decided to sell. “If the levy does happen to pass with the vote, I feel it’s a better solution than nothing at all,” he said. “At least then we know that we’d have a golf

course or green space in the community.” March says many of his neighbour who he’s spoken to plan to support the proposal, and says much of the continued tension is with the residents who will be directly impacted by the development. Councillors Carol Anne Meehan and Jan Harder were at Tuesday’s meeting, with Coun. Scott Moffatt unable to attend because he was out of town. The three say they are pleased with

how the working group listened to the residents concerns, and were able to find this potential solution. The Stonebridge Community Association is encouraging residents to submit any feedback on the proposal between now and August 20. Saying the residents support this plan, it will go to vote sometime in the next few weeks, with Mattamy planning to submit a new proposal with the city sometime in mid September.

Mahogany Dock Launch to highlight A Taste of Manotick Aug. 17

Manotick’s business community is getting ready for one of its signature events of the year. A Taste of Manotick will take place Sat., August 17 in the village. The event will draw thousands of people to Manotick’s village core as businesses and restaurants turn the village into a festival. “It has become one of

our biggest events of the year,” said Donna Smith, Executive Director of the Manotick BIA. “It’s an opportunity for all of our businesses to put their best foot forward and showcase their products and services.” In years past, the event has drawn more than 10,000 people on evenings where the weather has cooperated. Although it takes a lot of

work for the businesses to prepare for the event, Smith said it is a worthwhile opportunity. “We want people to get a taste of Manotick – to get an idea of what is here,” Smith said. “It’s an event to promote businesses in the village with the hopes that both the visitors and residents will want to come back to these businesses.”

The event will kick off with the official dock launch ceremony at Mahogany Harbour at 3 p.m., featuring live music by Mystic Circle. The car show at the Manotick Mews takes place from 4-8 p.m., and there will be stages at each end of Manotick Main Street with live music, featuring Heart & Soul, Cougar Bait, Mystic Circle and Disco Infer-

no. In addition, there will be street performers on hand to entertain the masses. “We have more busi-

nesses participating this year than ever before, so we are expecting a great event,” Smith added.

Scouting world comes to Greely for World Scouts Jamboree

Over 150 world travelling Scouts and Scouters converged on Greely after participating in the World Scout Jamboree over the last 2 weeks. 1st Greely Scouts welcomed and hosted this enthusiastic group at the Greely Legion with the help of many volunteers and famous fries cooked by our own Greely Lions! I had a chance to welcome them and hand out Canadian Flag pins as well as chat with a good number of the youth. It has been a great opportunity for them to enjoy a little part of Canada right here in our own backyard. The following day, scouts from Gibraltar, England, Bermuda and Greely came to city hall. It was fun to have them all in City Council Chambers, sitting in council chairs and asking questions to learn about our municipal level of government. We followed with lunch and a tour of the Mayor’s boardroom and office where the scouters learned about the Mayor’s role and some of the artifacts and gifts

that are there. (One of which is a snowmobile windshield with a story of its own). Thank you to the 1st Greely Scouts for putting a great few days together here in Ottawa for all the overseas scouts and their own. Thank you to the Mayor’s office staff for being so accommodating and touring the scout groups through the Mayor’s office and boardroom at City Hall.


I have received many comments and concerns on the conditions of Bank street since I started in office in 2014. We had an unfortunate lack of regular enforcement of regulations requiring businesses to maintain an aesthetically pleasing front for com-

munities and passersby. Coming into office in 2014, the previous policy has now been amended and I am personally overseeing every planning application for all new businesses that are opening in the area. This year, City Council approved an investment into hiring more by-law officers to help issues like the ones on Bank Street. Our investment is now paying off with our Bank Street Task Force. The task force, along with my overseeing of new applicants, will ensure that the property maintains in good condition without having to complain to 311, and we won’t have that “dump” look when you drive by. I have been working very closely with by-law to ensure this section of bank street is just as beautiful as any other community in our ward and in the city. The results of the Task Force’s work is already evident: grass has been cut, outdated and decrepit signs are

starting to be removed and Notices of Violation have been issued to correct other issues, including exterior waste and debris. I am very grateful for our

Bank street task force for all their hard work and continued dedication to improving this area. Thank you to OWBA and the Metcalfe Community Association for advocating for

dedicated by-law in this area, and many thanks to residents who have brought this to my attention and take as much pride in the community as I do.

Couturier says Richmond Royals will be ‘fun, fast and exciting’

Tryouts don’t start until Sept. 1, and the regular season doesn’t get underway until October, but Richmond Royals head coach Shawn Couturier is excited about the upcoming Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 Junior Hockey League season. After two years of rebuilding, Couturier says the Royals have the foundation to compete in the CCHL2 circuit. “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.” Among the returning veterans Couturier will be counting on for leadership and strong play is North Gower defenceman Patrick Yates. “Patrick Yates is his 4th and final season with the Royals,” Couturier said. “Patrick is the team captain and leads by example with great effort every game.” Couturier added that last year’s team scoring leader,

Adam Goodfellow, will also be a key veteran on the team. “Adam is in his third year in Tier 2 and has shown tremendous improvement every year,” Couturier said. Couturier added that Willem Brandt, who led Royals’ defensemen in scoring last year as a rookie, showed great improvement and attention to detail the whole season last year. Couturier spent his childhood playing minor hockey with Kanata and spent much of his time watching the Kanata Valley Lasers. He went on to play over 200 games at the Tier 1 level with the Kanata Valley Lasers and with the Cumberland Grads where he had the opportunity to play with some future NHL players such as Darroll Powe, Marc Methot and Claude Giroux. Couturier’s


goal is to help bring back some sons and helped lead the team Development Coordinator for “once exciting Junior B Hock- to the finals twice. Jake hopes the Ottawa Senators Organizaey to Richmond by creating a to be back in that position once tion. Since leaving the Ottawa fun and exciting atmosphere again but this time behind the Senators organization, Rob at the rink mixed with a local bench.

Sooners win Ontario Provincial Football League Bantam final By Jeff Morris

It was championship weekend in London, ON for the Ontario Provincial Football League. The Ottawa Sooners, who have a number of players and coaches from the area and the Nepean Eagles program, were in two of the three championships games. In the Bantam final, the Sooners edged the London Junior Mustangs 28-27. The Mustangs jumped on the scoreboard first when Ethan Tran blocked a punt and scooped it up to run into the end zone for a TD. Later in the first quarter, Tyrell Campbell caught a 49-yard touchdown pass for the Mustangs, who took a 14-0 lead. The Sooners tied the score by the half, as Jerry Momo caught two touchdown passes from quarterback Xavier Uhr. The second TD was set up by an interception from Barrhaven’s Luca Farinaccio. The Sooners took the lead in the third as Jacob Glofcheski caught a long pass from Uhr, and then scored when Uhr found him in the end zone for an 19yard score.

On Ottawa’s next possession, however, Tran scored his second TD of the game as he picked off a hitch pass and raced 47 yards into the end zone. The Mustangs took a 2721 lead when Campbell ran in for his second TD of the game. The extra point failed. Late in the game, Jerry Momo took a hand-off and ran 35 yards, down to the Mustang three yard line, before stepping out of bounds. Uhr tied the game two plays later on a quarterback sneak. The Mustangs blocked the extra point, but were called for too many men on the field. Joseph Cama got a second chance, and drilled his kick through the uprights for his fourth convert of the game and the winning point. In the Varsity final Saturday night in London, the Essex Ravens defeated the Sooners 25-6. North Gower’s Jack Gillis had an exceptional game for the Sooners, with 11 tackles, five assists, three tackles for loss, a forced fumble and two sacks before leaving the game with an injury at the end of the third quarter. Gillis led the OPFL Varsity League in tackles in 2019.

Jack Gillis of the Ottawa Sooners Varsity team (34) led the OPFL in tackles in 2019. Gillis, a North Gower native, grew up playing in the Nepean Redskins/Nepean Eagles youth football program. Wanda Keenan photo
