The MessengerNEWS Manotick-area native sharing mental health messages for teens Videos made by You Tube sensation Joey Kidney in Greely and Barrhaven now have 45 million views By Charlie Senack

A 22-year-old Manotick-area man has forged a blossoming career on YouTube using his own experiences with teen mental health. Joey Kidney lived a typical suburban life as a child, where he started playing minor hockey at a very young age. By the time he was 17, he had suffered five concussions. “I was just too nice of a hockey player,” said Kidney, “so I got hit from behind a lot.” When you play hockey “your neck gets smashed into the boards and then your brain just jumbles around.” His final concussion forced him into a dark room for about 4 months, in an attempt to give the brain time to heal. He passed the time playing with Eddie, his dog, and watching the Ellen Degeneres Show. Little did Kidney know that experience would change his life. “I didn’t know that once I left that dark

room I was going to be pretty messed up,” Kidney said. He ran away from home a few months later, not feeling like he fit in or belonged. With his parents by his side, he was sent to multiple doctors and was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Countless visits to therapists and doctors — plus a daily dose of medications — did not help his problems go away. Kidney then decided to start posting videos on YouTube about his journey. The public quickly responded. A good chunk of Kidney’s videos are filmed in the Greely and Barrhaven areas, as well as in Westboro where he now lives. With over 45 million views on YouTube, and 671 thousand subscribers, Kidney has held countless meet and greets, travelled North America, and has helped out hundreds of youth with their daily struggles. “I make videos for the kid that I was when

I was 16-years-old,” he said. “That lost boy who didn’t know what was happening.” Kidney said he receives countless letters and emails from fans looking for help, but said he isn’t a professional and is just hoping to spread some positivity and happiness in the world. By sharing his personal journey, he hopes it will inspire others to be the best version of themselves. On August 17, the YouTube sensation held a sold-out meet and greet at the Happy Goat Cafe in Sandy Hill. alongside Elle Mills, another famous YouTuber from Barrhaven. He said the purpose of the meet and greet was to remove mental health stigmas. Kidney is currently in the process of writing a book, and said he doesn’t know where life will take him. “I can’t tell you what I plan on doing, but hopefully in ten years you will be able to walk into a building and see that ‘stay you’ message

teens feel like themselves,” Kidney adds. “My biggest message

(to teens) is ‘stay you, stay beautiful’ and I will stick with that (maxim).”

Mattamy plans to build 1,025 new homes in Richmond a modest increase in the number of units from 996 to 1,025, compared to a draft concept plan

By RichmondHub.ca The Village of Richmond is going to get a lot bigger. Mattamy Homes has unveiled plans to build 1,025 new homes in Richmond. The development will be just south of Caivan Development’s planned subdivision, which will add 750 homes to the area. Combined, the 1,775 homes are expected to more than double the population of the village. The City of Ottawa received Mattamy’s Draft Plan of Subdivision for 6420 and 6431 Ottawa Street last month. The proposal is for 848 single family homes, 129 townhouses, 48 back to back townhouses, a 3.75-hectare community park co-located with a 2.48 hectares school block, a 0.8-hectare parkette and 19 public streets. The seven hectares at 6305 Ottawa Street that included the storm pond and flood plain associated with the Jock River no longer forms part of the application for subdivision. This submission flows from an earlier Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-law Amendment submitted in April 2013. The project was suspended for a period of time by Mattamy and reactivated in the Fall of 2017. Mattamy prepared revised concepts for the subdivision based on evolving market condi-

second large development to the lands known as the Western Development Lands.

Denise Smith dancers win at US Nationals in Maryland The Denise Smith School of Dance has once again put Manotick on the international map. The Manotick-based school captured the overall title at the Starpower National Dance Championship in Ocean City, Maryland. The championships saw more than 50 studios from 12 countries perform more than 1,500 routines. “They were amazing,” Chemay Forrester of the Denise Smith School of Dance said of her team of dancers. “I can’t tell you how proud I am of them. This is a big accomplishment.” Denise Smith took the title over runner-up XSquad Dancers of Selbyville, Delaware and On the Edge Performance Centre of New York. In addition to the overall title, a number of the school’s dancers won individual accolades. In the 12 and over category, Paige Forrester was named the winner of the Dance Spirit Future Stars Award. In the 11 and under category, Jaidyn Kelly placed third in the Top Gun competition. In group competitions, Denise Smith captured first place in the 11 and under

Grand Line Category, finished second in both the 9-11 Large Group Category and the 1214 Line Category. The local dancers also won first place in the 11 and under Outstanding Tap Performance Category and first in the Victory Cup Champions Grad Line 11 and under Category. The local studio also had three dancers who were national title winners. Audrina Peebles was First Runner Up for Petite Miss Starpower; Isabel Kelly was Second Runner Up for Teen Miss Starpower; and Paige Forrester was First Runner Up for Senior Miss Starpower. While in Ocean City, Chelsea Field, Alicia Boxma, Paige Forrester and Alex St. Laurent all auditioned to be casted as dancers with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and we are all successful in their audition. “Everyone trained so hard and worked so hard this season,” said Forrester. “This was the icing on the cake for a great year. We ended the season with a bang.” Registration is underway for the fall season, which begins in September.

The Denise Smith School of Dance claimed the championship at the Starpower National Championships in Ocean City, Maryland.

The MessengerINBOX Letter to the Editor

Brown says Moffatt was aware of his desire to run for council The Editor, This letter is in response to your Editorial in the August 10 edition of the Manotick Messenger. Yes, Councillor Moffatt knew that I wanted to run for councillor in our ward. In 2015, I was offered a position in the office of another rural Councillor of the City of Ottawa. I accepted this position. However, when Councillor Moffatt learned that I had been offered a job with this Councillor, he approached me to work in his office instead. At this time, Councillor Moffatt was well aware of my desire to work in municipal politics, in our ward. I have always strived to maintain the highest integrity in my life, including my relationship with Councillor Moffatt, and I continued to do so during my employment. At the time that I was

hired, Councillor Moffatt made it clear that his aspiration was to move to provincial politics to run in the June 2018 provincial election as the PC candidate for the new riding formed in our area. As a result, my arrangement, as honestly and mutually agreed upon with Councillor Moffatt, was that I would work for him for two years, gain the experience necessary to become the next candidate in RideauGoulbourn ward, and he would venture to the provincial level for the 2018 election. But, Councillor Moffatt changed his mind. He declined the invitation from the Carleton Progressive Conservative Riding Association Search Committee to seek the PC nomination in our new riding. As a result of this, I was faced with a decision, whereby I needed to decide if I was willing to continue in my cur-

rent position or move forward as planned. On February 14th, eight months before the October 22nd election, I met privately with Councillor Moffatt and resigned my position in his office. I advised Councillor Moffatt that my campaign would be a positive one that focused on the issues of the community. For two years I served Councillor Moffatt and Rideau-Goulbourn residents with timely, respectful service. My work ethic was never questioned because I provided quality work with honesty and integrity. Like most residents, I’m focused on the

issues facing our community, crumbling infrastructure, roads that are falling apart and services that fall below our residents’ expectations. The City’s debt has grown by 164% in eight short years while taxes and fees increase every year. Many of the villages in Rideau-Goulbourn are facing development challenges that must be addressed to protect our heritage. Years after Vimy Memorial Bridge was built, heavy truck traffic continues to use Bridge Street threatening the safety of Manotick, and with the Amazon distribution center being built, this problem will only get worse.

I am extremely proud of the service that I have already been able to provide to residents in Rideau-Goulbourn, through my work as a volunteer in this community and through my service with the City.

I look forward to continuing to provide this service as your representative at City Hall. David Brown Candidate for Rideau-Goulbourn Ward 21

The MessengerCOMMUNITY City announces plans for new library, park on Earl Armstrong City politicians and staffers joined representatives from Urbandale Construction as plans were announced for a new library and recreation complex on Earl Armstrong Road just west of Limebank Road in Riverside South last Friday. Mayor Jim Watson was on hand, along with councillors Michael Qaqish, George Darouze and Tim Tierney for the announcement. “Riverside South is one of the fastest growing communities in Ottawa, and the city has to keep up with its growth,” Watson said. “This project is a great example of the community, the city and the builder coming together.” The complex will feature a new library to serve both the Riverside South Community and many residents in the Osgoode Ward. It will also feature a recreation area that will include a skateboard park, a basketball court, and an adult fitness area. There will be room for Phase 2, which would include an indoor pool. Watson said that the complex will be built along the new LRT line, and that construction of the new facility will begin in early 2020. Ward 22 Councillor Michael Qaqish also spoke about the project. “This has been the biggest thing I have been working on for the past four years,” Qaqish said. “It was a great opportunity for a P-3.” Qaqish added that the design details will be finalized within the year.

Walkability Survey Number 2

The Manotick Village Community Association, along with ROSSS, will be conducting another walkability survey of the Village Core in early September. The survey will look at pedestrian safety at intersections and on sidewalks, the ability of persons with mobility issues to be able to move easily through the core, and connections between key areas of the Village Core. It will follow the same format used last January and will result in a report that will be tabled with the City for consideration. We continue to work with the City to address issues relating to sidewalk safety and snow removal as a result of the January report and will report on results in the fall. If you are interested in participating, please contact me at president@manotickvca.org

Sharrows on Bridge Street

Thank you to those who contacted me about the cycling sharrows on Bridge Street. We are responding to questions about traffic volumes on Dickinson Street as a follow up and will be sharing comments with the Councillor. There is still time to provide input if you have concerns about the sharrow approach for cycling. Just send an email to president@ manotickvca.org

Manotick Walking Club

Sonia Mortimer and Florence Moore are once again coordinating the Manotick Walking Club

which begins on Monday, September 10th. The program will run every Monday and Friday, 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the Manotick Arena. The activity is designed for the older adult, with an elevator available for easy access. You can walk for as little or as long as you are able. There is no charge for the program. Just arrive and participate! This Walking Program was originally developed by Ottawa Public Health, but now offered by the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association.

Around the Village

Bridge Street will be closed between Main Street and Dickinson Street from 8 p.m. on August 27 to 6 a.m. on August 28 to enable the connection of services to the new seniors building under construction on Clapp Lane. Detour signs will be posted. We have been working with Minto to ensure that construction traffic uses First Line and Century to access the last portion of Phase 1. It has been a challenge as subcontractors are not always adhering to this route however, we have been successful in reducing the number of trucks exiting Mahogany via Bridgeport on to Main Street. Paving has been completed on Potter Drive and flex bars are expected to be installed to mark a pedestrian walkway along some of the Drive.

OCPA Plowing Fore A Cure golf tourney raises $18K for local hospitals The Ottawa Carleton Plowmen’s Association (OCPA) held its 15th Annual Plowing Fore A Cure golf tournament on August 14, at Emerald Links Golf and Country Club in Greely, raising more than $18,000 for two area hospitals. Proceeds from the tournament will be divided between the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation and the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation. Kemptville Hospital plans to use the funds to purchase much needed Sapphire Multi Therapy Infusion Pain Pumps for their ICU while

Winchester Hospital plans to purchase chemotherapy chairs for use in cancer patient care. Thanks is extended to W.O. Stinson & Sons Ltd., RBC Wealth Management The O’Neill Wealth Management Group, Myers Automotive Group and Jim Tubman Chevrolet whose generous sponsorship helped make this event such a success. The Plowing Fore A Cure golf tournament is the precursor to OCPA’s main event which is the OCPA Plowing Match set for August 24 - 25, 2018, at SunTech Greenhouses Ltd. near Manotick,

at 5541 Doyle Road. All are welcome to enjoy the day as well as the evening awards banquet, tickets $25. For more information call 613913-0721 or email sharenarm@hotmail.com. This year’s tournament was held in memory of Lloyd Cowan, 1923 – 2017. Lloyd was born into a farm family in Metcalfe Corners and was well known for his Surge milking machine dealership in North Gower and later moved to Manotick where he built his home and shop. Lloyd was heavily involved with the Ottawa Carleton Plowmen’s Association and

the International Plowing Match held in Richmond in 1983. In September 2001, the Ottawa-Carleton Plowmen’s Association and the Ontario Plowmen’s Association hosted Rural Expo 2001, The International Plowing Match in Navan. This event had two goals; to promote the agricultural community and to provide a lasting legacy to the community. As part of this legacy, supporters of the IPM2001 continue to raise funds towards patient care for Ottawa area hospitals through the Plowing Fore A Cure golf tournament.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Mystery grain elevator delays Manotick’s Mahogany Harbour

No doubt, some residents may be wondering where the Mahogany Dock is, especially given this exceptionally warm summer that we’re enjoying. It certainly would have been the perfect summer to have the new dock! Unfortunately, there is a delay. On July 26th, Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association (MCPRA) was advised of the following with respect to its application, on behalf of the City, for a Parks Canada permit: “The dock proposal was also circulated to Parks Canada’s Underwater Archeology staff who generally review in-water work proposals for potential impacts on submerged cultural resources. The proposed dock location matches that of an historical grain elevator and associated docks. A preliminary investigation needs to be conducted in order to determine the presence and / or extent of sub-



shore of Dougherty’s Creek where it flows into ‘The Bay’ on the Rideau, south of Manotick. It would appear that Manotick’s grain elevator was in the approximate location where the Mahogany Dock project will be undertaken. The grain elevator was constructed of 8” planks lying flat, spiked one on the next, tinned on the outside, with an eagle weathervane on the top. There were six bins with a total capacity of 90,000 bushels. J.A. Lindsay, Kars, was bookkeeper for several years and entries in his ledgers reveal that platform scales were purchased in 1902 for $22.00 and the scales inspector was paid about $1.25 annually. The farmers were paid in cash. The boats came in as soon as the ice broke up in the spring and, as noted, in 1903, the “Scotsman” steamed out of the Bay three times between May 21 and July 30 with a total

of 19,486 bushels, in bags and bulk, for export from Montreal. And these were biiiiiiiigggg boats. One of the vessels called the “Ottawan” was built in 1904 and measured 108 feet long and 24 feet wide; the “Welshman” was built in 1900 at 105 feet; the “Olive” measured 95 feet long and 18 feet wide. Some of the grain went to Lindsay’s Wharf, Kars, but most of it was hauled to the Manotick elevator, by local farmers. The ledgers have long lists of familiar names like Berrigan, Kennedy, Moodie, Dunlop, Meredith, Blair, Mansfield, Scobie, Potvin, Delaney and many others. The price per bushel varied from 26 to 45 cents between 1900 and 1905, depending on the type of grain - wheat, barley, or oats, the quality of the grain, and market price. As the market changed and farmers started shipping milk to the dairies in Ottawa, they grew corn and other

merged cultural resources. This investigation would be conducted by a private cultural resources consultant, and submitted to Parks Canada staff for review, prior to the issuance of the permit.” Thus began the mystery of exactly where Manotick’s grain elevator was located. Of course, our first call went to resident historian Larry Ellis, who had written previously about the elevator. Then we consulted with Rideau Historical Society member, Ron Wilson. Then we went to the North Gower Archives, and with the assistance of Georgie Tupper, discovered the file on the Manotick Grain Elevator. According to the book, Carleton Saga, before 1900, E.A. Hall, proprietor of the Ottawa Forwarding Company, had a grain elevator erected on Lot 3, Broken Front, Concession A, North Gower, on the north

crops for their cattle. The Manotick grain elevator became obsolete and was sold to Robert Edward Moffatt of Carsonby in 1917, with the lumber used to build an addition to the house for his new bride. Certainly, the proposed Mahogany Dock reflects Manotick’s early beginnings and its industrial and agricultural roots. As an update on the new project itself, dock construction can commence when the Parks Canada permit is received. The Agreement with the City has been signed; the construction contract has been signed with D & G Landscaping, general contractors, a local firm whose owners, Doug and Greg Clunie, grew up in Manotick. The dock components have been ordered. The total project cost (including 13% HST and 10% contingency) is $127,000. The project will be undertaken in two phas-

es, with the top-of-bank work done first. The dock construction will be done in the winter months (i.e. January), with a substantial financial savings and construction benefit being realized using this approach. $100,000 has already been raised towards the project, including $50,000 raised by ‘Chics in the ‘Tick’, $25,000 from the Kiwanis Club of Manotick, $10,000 from the Manotick BIA, and others. To mitigate the approximate $27,000 balance, the MCPRA is working with Ottawa Tourism and the Manotick BIA to apply for a potential grant; exploring other fundraising activities; and soliciting donations from both individuals and agencies. Questions? Hope that you visited the MCPRA booth at Taste of Manotick, but if not, contact Anne Robinson, at 613692-3934 or robinson@ sympatico.ca.

The importance of friends cannot be overstated. Maintaining a healthy group of friends can help relieve stress by enabling a person to have a go-to network of close companions with whom to share the ups and downs of life. The Mayo Clinic says that friends can increase one’s sense of belonging and purpose; help one cope with trauma; encourage change and help one improve his or her self-confidence and selfworth. The medical group also says that people with strong social support systems have a reduced risk of depression, high blood pressure and unhealthy weights. While friends are important, some people find that making new friends — particularly in adulthood — can be challenging. That’s because making friends may

not be too great a priority compared to caring for families or tending to work responsibilities. Those resolving to broaden their social circles can explore these tips for making new friends. • Start at school. School is often the first place children make friends, but school also can be a great place for adults to meet new people. By attending school functions, you will be thrust into a circle of people similar to you. Parents who get to know their childrens’ friends’ parents may find that they have more in common than just their children. • Join groups. Kids find it easy to make friends due to consistency. They see the same kids each day at school and through sports teams and clubs. Adults can replicate this consistency by join-

ing groups that spark their interests, finding like-minded people who meet week after week. • Go on a blind “date.” Have a friend set you up with a mutual friend and see if there is a connection there. You may be able to make new friends simply from an introduction. • Take the lead. Pursue a new friendship by taking some initiative. Invite someone out for coffee or over to your home for a glass of wine. Follow up afterward to say you had a good time. • Be positive. Be conscious of what you are adding to a potential friendship. Start off the relationship adding value and joy to the other person’s life, and he or she may be more inclined to do the same. Over time, you can have conversations about rough


patches in your lives but wait until the friendship is firmly established to get so serious. There is no magic number of friends a person should have, but individuals should value quality over quantity. Making friends may seem complicated, but it is actually easier than adults may think
