New high schools among priorities in provincial call for capital funding The Government of Ontario launched the 2019-20 Capital Priorities program, which provides school boards with the opportunity to access funding for large-scale projects in every region of the province. “We are investing in our students and their futures by building new schools and renovating existing schools because I believe better schools mean better learning environments for the next generation,” said Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education. School boards can now apply for funding for capital projects including new school buildings or renovations to be completed by 2023-24. The program will also provide funding for school-based child care spaces as part of the government’s commit-

ment to build up to 10,000 new child care spaces in schools. “I’m very excited to make this announcement to constituents in my riding,” said Goldie Ghamari, MPP for Carleton. “I grew up on the public education system, and building new public schools, especially a new public high school in Riverside South, has been one of my top priorities since coming to office.” The future Riverside South high school will have an impact on high schools in the area. Students are bused out of the community to a number of

different schools, including Merivale and even South Carleton. A shuffling after the school is built could also alleviate some of the crowding in Barrhaven’s public high schools. The Stittsville high school, meanwhile, will have a direct impact on the community as it will alleviate potential crowding issues at South Carleton High School in Richmond. With the planned development growth in Richmond and Manotick over the next two decades, a Stittsville high school would create some space that will be needed at South Carleton. “Of the 8 Capital Priorities projects listed by the OCDSB, four of them are located in my riding of Carleton, with the top two located in Stittsville and

Riverside South. Throughout the year, I’ve been working hard to ensure that the Ministry of Education has been made aware of the need for new schools in the Ottawa area, including helping to organize and deliver a petition with over 2,500 signatures informing the Minister of Education of the need to build a new public high school in Riverside South,” MPP Ghamari said. “Now, it’s up to the OCDSB and local officials to ensure that these applications are submitted properly and on time. I’ve reached out and spoken with OCDSB and local officials, offering my assistance in any way possible. I will continue to advocate on behalf of the residents of Carleton, and look forward to acting as a liaise between the OCDSB,

municipal politicians and the Ministry of Education. This is very exciting news and I’m thrilled to see that our government is investing in what matters most: the future of our children,” said MPP Ghamari. “This government is taking decisive action to ensure students have safe and modern learning environments that enable their success in the classroom, in life, and in the labour market,” added Lecce. Ontario’s 2019 Budget, Protecting What Matters Most, highlights the government’s commitment to providing students with safe and healthy learning environments and providing families with more child care options. The government announced in Budget 2019

that over the next ten years, Ontario is investing nearly $13 billion in capital grants. This funding will build new schools and help existing schools replace aging heating or air conditioning systems, repair roofs and windows, and install important accessibility features like elevators and ramps, and support the expansion of child care spaces. The Ministry of Education invites school boards to submit their top 10 school-based capital priorities for funding consideration. These are the school boards’ highest priority capital projects required within the next three years. The Ministry of Education reviews all Capital Priorities submissions for eligibility and announces successful projects annually.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY 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, fea-

turing Heart & Soul, Cougar Bait, Mystic Circle and Disco Inferno. In addition, there will be street performers on hand to entertain the masses.

“We have more businesses participating this year than ever before, so we are expecting a great event,” Smith added.

A large crowd was on hand at the 2017 A Taste of Manotick event in the village core. Should we have another good weather evening, the crowd at this year’s event Sat., August 17 is expected to the best ever. JEFF MORRIS PHOTO

The Taste of Manotick is back! On August 17th, from 4pm.-8pm, come down to Manotick Main Street. It will be a great afternoon of FREE family fun. I look forward to seeing everyone there. Green Homes Tax Credit Conservatives understand that we must make life more affordable, as we take on climate change. Conservative leader Andrew Scheer recently announced a Green Homes Tax Credit plan that is worth up to $3,800 a year. This will help green your home and keep more money in your pocket. For so many Canadians, the upfront cost of making their home energy efficient is unrealistic and out of reach. In 2017, buildings represented 12% of Canada's emissions. If people could save money and the environment at the same time, more would green their homes with better insulation, appliances, or windows. The Green Homes Tax Credit will allow homeowners to do energy-saving renovations and improvements. New windows, furnaces, insulation or solar panels could give people a break on their taxes if such a credit were in place. Green improvements could include: Installation of high-quality insulation; Investments in high-efficiency furnaces; Replacement of doors and windows with more efficient models; Upgrading of ventilation, heating and cooling systems; and,

City council to review waste management roadmap over the next two years

My first two terms in office have been somewhat polar opposites when it comes to waste management. From 2010-2014, the City moved to bi-weekly garbage collection, expanded what was accepted in the blue box, introduced the green bins in schools program, expanded the availability and collection of the green bin and extended the life of the landfill as a result. On the Plasco front, we unfortunately saw the failure of that project, culminating with its official demise in December 2014. During the 201418 term of Council, all was quiet on the garbage front. The only change of any significance was the settlement of the Orgaworld arbitration and the subsequent addition of plastic bags to the green bin. During this term of Council, we will be discussing everything there is to discuss when it comes to waste management. Last month, we approved the roadmap


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

for our Solid Waste Master Plan review. This will be a two-year review and the plan is to cover all aspects of waste from how you acquire it and how the City collects it to how we can divert more and how we process the rest. The last thing I want to look at is a new landfill. When it comes to the existing landfill; that is something that works to our advantage. The current lifespan is set at 2042. I have absolutely zero interest in scouting locations for a new one. That means we need to consider stronger waste diversion. We also need to consider alternatives to the landfill. Where do we go with the green bin program when the contract ends

in 2030? Is there a viable waste-to-energy solution that does not cost the City $300M and double your garbage collection fee? Can we make it easier for residents to recycle and can we reduce the amount of waste you actually end up with? These are just some of the questions we want to answer in the next two years. I am very much looking forward to this review. We will have a comprehensive public consultation component and I hope you will get involved. There are few issues which elicit more opinions than garbage collection. I hope we can channel that interest and come up with a way forward that will help serve the City and its residents for the next 30-50 years. Bottled Water in City Facilities Another matter discussed at the Environment Committee last month was the idea of banning the sale of bot-

tled water in City-owned facilities. This issue is almost less about plastic bottles and more about the quality of the water that the City produces. It is routinely the best rated water in the country. At the moment, the City has a sponsorship agreement with Coca-Cola to sell beverages in City facilities. Of course, this includes bottled water. To end the contract would cost upwards of $700,000. We will not be doing that. However, Council approved a motion that will have staff look at the next contract and how that could be arranged to limit the amount of single use plastics and promote City water. There is much to consider when doing this. Some believe you can simply ban all plastics and your problems are solved. That simply is not true. There are accessibility realities that we must consider. This is why we did not implement a ban immediately. We must consider all aspects of this and bring

forward a plan that improves the situation without creating new problems.

Climate Emergency Declaration Like with many issues recently, this was another issue that came through the Committee that I Chair that had some significant misinformation surrounding it. I have never been too interested in posturing, pandering and grandstanding. When votes of that nature come forward, I do not support them. With that in mind, it was important to ensure that any discussion about a “climate emergency� was not solely for political gain

or to give the appearance of something. As I said, I could never support such a baseless declaration. My focus remains on what is best for the City and what is best for the residents of it. I bring that mentality to my every day job as Councillor and I certainly bring it to my role as Chair of the Environment Committee. I am not interesting in playing political games and I cannot worry about the motives of my colleagues. What I can do is ensure that anything that comes through Environment Committee is meaningful and keeps all residents in mind.

moffatt continues on page 5

Friday, August 2, 2019 Page 5



moffatt continues from page 4 One of the biggest challenges for our Committee in recent years has been direction. We have had many items on the go but no clear path forward. I alluded to this earlier on the waste management file over the last four years. We are trying to change that this term. I believe the climate emergency motion from Councillor Shawn Menard can help in that regard. The recommendations contained within the report focus on the Air Quality & Climate Change Master Plan as well as Energy Evolution. These are previously identified priorities for the City of Ottawa. It also recommends a Council Sponsors Group and a climate resiliency plan, something staff have already committed to.

As Chair of the Environment Committee, I will have direct oversight for how any of the recommendations move forward and I will be taking a leadership role on all matters that fall under the jurisdiction of that Committee. This initiative does not take funds from general revenues. As approved by Council, we will start with $500,000 from the Hydro Ottawa surplus, which comes from return on investments.

This is above and beyond the $20M surplus the City receives annually

The initiatives that comes from this will be implemented with BOTH the environment and the taxpayer in mind. We have

many examples of projects that reduced the long term operating costs of the City of Ottawa all the while being better for the environment. Gone are the days where being green meant spending more money. Today, we are focused on energy efficiency and waste diversion and other environmental initiatives that will save money rather than require larger budgets. At the end of the day, I am elected to be considerate of how we spend your money. We also have a responsibility to be efficient environmentally as well as economically. I believe the two are not mutually exclusive and that is why I support the climate emergency motion. For me, it was not about the declara-

tion. It was about the substance of the motion and the ability to focus on projects that are smart for the City and for the residents who live here.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Summer road construction projects in full swing throughout city

With summer road construction projects underway in the City, it is hard to avoid construction delays getting in and out of Manotick and there is more to come. A key project for the Village will be the resurfacing of Rideau Valley Drive North between Rogers Stevens Drive and Rideau Narrows. It is expected to begin soon with a tentative completion date of mid-September. The replacement of two culverts just south of the village is slated for this fall before the resurfacing of Rideau Valley Drive between Rideau Narrows and the Village can be done next year. Work has already begun on the widening of Bankfield between First Line and Prince of Wales. The project also includes the installation of a traffic light at First Line and Bankfield and the addition of turning lanes at Prince of Wales and Bankfield.

low for construction of the new stormwater management pond, which is located adjacent to the path area. While the timing is not great for residents who have been using the path to come into the Village, the use of heavy equipment in the construction of the pond makes it an unsafe area for local residents. When completed, the pond will feature additional seating areas, pathways and landscaping.

Cycling safety

The recent deaths of cyclists continues to highlight the need to improve our cycling network throughout the City, and particularly through the Village Core. There are many ways the City can improve cycling safety but experience has shown that limited funds have resulted in less than ideal results. The pathway along Mitch Owens from Lime-

bank Road to the village is an example of where cost limitations resulted in a pedestrian/cycling path on the shoulder of the road with no barrier between vehicular traffic and cyclists. It is anticipated that a similar approach will be used along Rideau Valley Drive North between Eastman and Century Road when it is resurfaced. Given the truck traffic that travels along these two arteries into the village, a safer solution needs to be implemented. The MVCA, along with others, has offered suggestions to the City to improve cycling safety and will continue to do so. If you share those concerns or have suggestions on improvements, please contact me at president@manotickvca.org

More details will be provided in a future column.

An Old Fish Story - Bill Brennan’s Big One! Bill Brennan operated a Blacksmith’s Shop on the Island, in the vicinity of Arthur Street, about 1910. Around 1917 he sold this shop and moved his family to the building on Main Street; he continued the blacksmith business in a small shop to the rear. Brennan retired and moved to Ottawa in the late 1930’s. The following is word for word as it appeared in a newspaper article: “Remember when?

Bringing honest leadership to Carleton Like you, Carleton is my home – I live in Metcalfe with my wife Jenny and our son Cameron – and am a teacher in the Ottawa Carleton District School board. Before that, I worked for Elections Canada and served as an election observer to make sure that democracy is protected around the world. I have been an elder at St. Andrew’s Church in Kars and a member of the Royal Canadian Legion in Manotick.

And I’ll talk about the true climate action our Liberal government has taken – investments in clean technology, incentives for businesses, and putting a price on pollution to protect the environment for our children and grandchildren.

I’m running to improve your quality of life, to ensure we have sustainable infrastructure and to ensure we take real action to protect the environment.

Helping families with an even better child benefit On July 20, families in Carleton, and across Canada, saw their Canada Child Benefit payments go up. Here in Carleton, that means: More money for 2,800 single parent families in our communities. More than $95 million tax free in four years to benefit 16,410 children in Carleton. More money in the pockets of 9 out of 10 families across Canada. Since taking ofice, this government has made sure that more money goes to the families who needed it most - tax-free -so you have more to spend on things like summer camps, back to school clothes and sports equipment. I want to improve the quality of life here in Carleton, and protecting the Canada Child Benefit is one way I can do that.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY It’s an open door every day at Manotick Place Retirement Community

“We don’t just have an open house once a month, we have an open door every day,” said Manotick Place Executive Director Linda Meek. Manotick Place started as a vision to create a place for seniors to be able to enjoy a village lifestyle within Manotick. The building certainly changed the landscape of Manotick’s core when it was built a few years ago. But it has also changed the dynamic of the village. Although it is a retirement residence, it has become a hub of the community since it has opened its doors. “We aren’t just a retirement home,” Meek said. “We open our doors to the village. You’re welcome from the moment you walk in the door.” From the time Manotick Place opened its doors, it was destined to be more than just a retirement home for the residents. Its goal was to become a central hub of activity for the community. Their doors

are open to the community for activities like exercise classes, as well as events like jazz band performances every Wednesday. And while the village is a part of the home at Manotick Place, its residents are a big part of the village. The home is in the heart of Manotick, which enables the residents to be a part of a larger community than just their home. “One of the things that makes Manotick Place unique is that the residents can enjoy village life,” Meek said. “The village is accessible to our residents, and they are a big part of the community. They frequent local businesses and people know our residents by name. It’s an important part of life for them.” Manotick Place is a beautiful building with all of the amenities expected in a modern retirement residence. Their beautiful dining room overlooks Bridge Street, and

the meals are prepared by a Cordon Bleu Chef. There are a multitude of other amenities including an exercise area, chapel, library, games area, billiards room, theatre and landscaped outdoor patios at the front of the building and dining room, as well as a spacious and charming courtyard. Thoughtful and convenient amenities include a tuck shop, hair salon, therapeutic tubs on two floors, a physiotherapy office, laundry rooms on each floor and parking for visitors. They also have a resident bus and offer WiFi throughout the building. The patio is a hidden gem at Manotick Place. Backing onto the Rideau River, it offers a delightfully unexpected sanction of tranquility for residents and visitors. “It’s a beautiful building, but what the residents really like about it is the friendliness of the staff,” Meek said. “Everyone who works here is

Manotick Place residents enjoyed a magic show on the beautiful patio last week. experienced, but what’s really important is that everyone gets along and you see smiles on the faces of the staff. There is a great level of compassion here with the staff.” Meek has been in the industry for the past 14 years and had nothing but praise for both the Chef and the Director of

Care at Manotick Place. Because of the dynamics of the home within the village, there are also many friendships that existed between the residents before they moved into Manotick Place, as well as new friendships forming daily. “Some of our residents wanted to retire in Manotick

because they love the village and the home, but we also have many of our residents who are from Manotick and Richmond,” Meek said. For more information on Manotick Place or to book a visit, call 613.692.2121 or visit www.manotickplaceretirement.ca.

Ward 22 residents concerned about safety and car break-ins By Charlie Senack Residents of the Gloucester-South Nepean Ward 22 are concerned about recent vehicle theft and house breakins in the community, and are looking to find solutions to combat the issue before it gets out of hand. On July 24, Ward 22 Councillor Carol Anne Meehan held a community barbecue where more than 200 residents came out to share their concerns with members of the Ottawa Police Service. The issues started in March of this year, when swarmings took place in multiple areas of the community — primarily at the Circle K Convenience Store located at Spratt Rd and Canyon Walk Dr. in Riverside South. At the time, Ottawa Police said the group of teens demanded cash and electron-

ics from the victims. Meehan also said on a post to her blog that it’s believed the teens attended nearby St. Francis Xavier High School. That was a concern for local resident and Riverside South Community Association member Lesia Gilbert, who’s 11-year-old son frequently visits the strip mall where many of the swarming incidents occurred. “I have an 11-year-old who loves biking down to the Circle K and I’ve allowed him to continue doing that, but with the strict instruction of if he sees a group of kids anywhere in that plaza, he is not to go near it,” she said. “there has been threats of violence in the plaza — enough that police have been called on multiple occasions and arrests have been made.” She said incidents at the mall have decreased in recent

months, but problems with vehicle theft and car breakins are on the rise. Gilbert adds that the community routinely saw unlocked cars being targeted by local teens during the summer, but this year is different. “Cars have been jimmied, some cars have been smashed, and I’m personally aware of two cars that have been stolen,” the Riverside South resident said, adding that some of the incidents have been caught on homeowner security cameras. “There was also a set of jet skis that were stolen from someone’s driveway.” St. Jerome Elementary School was also broken into on the evening of July 18, but it’s unclear if anything was stolen from the building. Pictures show broken glass littering the floor, and drawers rummaged through.

Ottawa Police spoke to Ward 22 residents at a meeting hosted by Councillor Carol Anne Meehan. The issues come at a time the old community policing method is returning to the capital this fall, but only three communities will see the increase in officers for now. Meehan, who is also a

member of the Police Services Board, hopes that will expand out to her ward of Riverside South in the future, but in the meantime said she’s glad to see police making their presence known in the community.

She added that the owner of the mall where many of the swarming took place will be adding new lights in the front and back of the buildings.

late to – books about teenagers/young adults. I really love suspenseful novels as well. I love The Maze Runner Series, and Harry Potter. I read Go Ask Alice for English class, and loved it so much! Who is your favourite author? “I don’t think I have a favourite author. I’d have to experiment more with books to really figure out what style of writing I like best. Karen M. McManus has two books that I own and love very much, so she is an author whom I like.” What is your greatest accomplishment? “My greatest accomplishment is probably making it on to Student

I play for my school’s sports teams, but I also play basketball outside of school. I’ve been playing for Ottawa South Basketball Association for 4 years. I’m also part of our school’s IMUM Team, which is a club that spreads awareness for mental health. I’m very interested in mental health, and I think it’s a topic that people need to talk about more. I have been inspired by other people who have come and gone from my school, and have made such an impact here. That’s what I want to do, I want to make an im-

pact in my school community. I’m also very involved in my church. I’m involved in our Creative Arts Team, and I help out in Kids Church as a leader for the young children, while the service goes on.” Career Goals: “I want to study psychology in university. I find the study of the mind to be so fascinating, and I think that’s why I’m interested in mental health and mental illness. I want to be able to help people with my ultimate goal to be a psychologist. We’ll see, but hopefully my dream can come true.” Comment: “Nothing in my life would be possible without the immense support from my teachers, family, and friends.” Hannah Carty is a basketball player and a member of the St. Mark High School student council.

Seniors can now ride OC Transpo at no cost twice a week By Jim Watson, Mayor, City of Ottawa

After witnessing the success of no-charge OC Transpo services for seniors on Wednesdays, I pledged during my 2018 Mayoral re-election campaign to extend this service for seniors to an additional day of the week. Offering seniors a second day a week on which they can get around the city on public transit at no cost is not only an opportunity for seniors to save money, but it encourages them to leave their home and take part in social outings, helping to fight widespread loneliness and isolation affecting many seniors. Currently, seniors 65-plus can ride OC Transpo buses and

trains at no charge every Wednesday. Beginning on July 7, seniors were able to take transit for no charge on Sundays as well. Providing no-charge transit for two days a week gives Ottawa seniors more mobility options. This is important, as transit plays a key role in the lives of Ottawa’s seniors – connecting them with medical appointments, shopping, family members and friends. This plays a big role in helping to fight the social isolation that many seniors feel in our community. Public transit is also an affordable choice for those seniors who are on a fixed income. And our data shows that this program works. In 2018, 180,000 seniors rode OC

Transpo on no-charge Wednesdays. We estimate that 35,000 seniors per year will ride OC Transpo on no-charge Sundays. I encourage all seniors to take advantage of the no-charge OC Transpo service on Wednesdays and Sundays, and to get around our beautiful city by public transit and active transportation. Seniors can also purchase their Presto card, set their senior discount, and load a deeply discounted monthly OC Transpo pass or pay-per-ride fare at various City of Ottawa and OC Transpo service centres and selected vendors including Loblaws and Shoppers Drug Marts across the city. A complete list of locations can be found at www.octranspo.com.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is encouraging local seniors to take advantage of free OC Transpo bus fare on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Q: How can I get rid of this wart??

Q: How do I get my toddler to let me brush their teeth?

Q: What should I do when there is a pet food recall?

A: A wart is a growth on the skin

A: Brushing your toddler’s teeth can be challenging, but baby teeth need proper care, even if they eventually fall out. They are important for your child’s function and for guiding the permanent teeth into the correct position. Try these tips to encourage your toddler to cooperate: - Make it fun! Sing silly tooth brushing songs, make up rhymes - Stock up on books about tooth brushing. Show them a video of their favorite character brushing teeth - Go shopping together and let them pick out the brush that they are excited about - Brush in front of a mirror together, take turns brushing each other’s teeth, let them brush and then you finish - Brushing before bedtime is a must, but don’t wait until they are exhausted and cranky - Create a ritual that they will look forward to. Let them get their brush, turn on the faucet or press the button if they have a rotating toothbrush.

A: When you hear about a recall, go to the pet food company’s website and make sure your pet’s diet is not one of the recalled brands. Dr. Andrew Sparling Safety and transparency from a food company is paramount, D.V.M. and only a canine or feline nutritionist or a member of your veterinary care team can help you understand what is important for your pet’s nutritional needs. Don’t be misled by savvy marketing! Discuss your pet’s nutritional needs with your veterinary team, then make sure the company you choose has a solid safety record and is transparent about all their nutritional information.

caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) that looks like a solid blister or hard bump. The virus is contracted by touching something a wart has touched such as a towel, doorknob, or Pharmacist floor. Therefore, warts most commonly grow on the hands or feet. To prevent spreading, do not pick or scratch a wart, keep it covered and wash your hands after touching. Warts may actually go away on their own but more commonly require treatment if painful, bothersome, unsightly or long-lasting. There is no ideal remedy but options include various over-the-counter products such as liquid, gel, pads, freeze/cold therapy which can be found and discussed with your pharmacist at the pharmacy. A doctors visit may be required for stubborn warts or stronger treatment options.

Intermediate Eagles reach finals at Canadian Intermediate Little League Championships

It has been a month to remember for the East Nepean Intermediate Little League Eagles. After winning the District 2 title, the Eagles went on to compete in the Ontario Intermediate (13 year olds) Little League Championships in Kanata. The Eagles won the tournament with 10-2 and 7-6 wins over the Kingston Colts in the best of three final. “It’s a team win,” said Eagles coach Derek James after the game. “The boys worked very hard at practice. They practiced every day for two-and-a-half weeks, sometimes twice a day, and sometimes for three-and-a-half hours a day to get ready for this.” The Eagles left the following week for the Canadian Intermediate Little League championships in Langley, BC.

“We’re not going there to participate,” James said. “We’re going there to try and win.” The Eagles went 4-1 in the round robin portion of the tournament, beating BC 5-2, losing to the host Fraser Valley team 5-3, and then beating the Atlantic champions 17-1, the Prairies champion 7-2 and Alberta 6-4. They were tied for first place with BC. “These boys worked really hard,” said James. “We are a strong hitting team and we are deep in pitching, so some of these players are really versatile.” James said one of the great things about his team is how the players get along both on and off the field. “They’re a fun bunch,” he said. “They all get along, they do things outside of baseball together, and they all play Fortnite together at night, or sometimes they

Following a thrilling comeback win at Ken Ross Park Monday, the East Nepean Minor Little League Eagles (age 10-11) are the District 2 champions and are off to the Ontario championships in Cumberland this weekend. It was a winner-take-all contest between the Eagles and the West Ottawa Twins. The Eagles scored a pair of runs in the second inning to take a 2-0 lead, but the Twins rallied in the fourth to go ahead 3-2. The Eagles scored three runs in the fifth as Hayden Gorman smacked a two-run triple in the fifth. Pitcher Evan Amadio sealed the deal in the sixth, and was backed up by tremendous defence, especially in the outfield. “Ottawa West is a great team,” Eagles coach Matt Beelan said. “We played them six times this year and we were three and three against them.”

Beelan said that the Eagles had some big plays, but also did the little things well and executed on their fundamentals. “Our pitching was great, our defence was great, and we made two huge catches in the outfield.” Gorman’s triple in the fifth was a game changer. The ball sailed over the right fielder’s head and to the fence. In the fourth, a similar play was caught with an outstanding catch. “As the third base coach, I thought he was going to catch it. Either way, our guys were tagging and we would have tied the score anyway. But we practice that specific play, and the boys were ready.” The Eagles advanced to the Ontario Minor Little League Baseball Championships in Cumberland. In their first game of the double elimina-

play MLB on the PS4. They are constantly challenging each other, and they get along great. Some of them have been playing together for four years.” The Eagles defeated the host Fraser Valley team from BC in the semi-final by a 13-3 score. Six different Eagles players had two hits each in the game. Josh Van Noort, Noah McNeil, Nic Bertrand, Coleson Kaluza, Carter Audet and Brett James all scored two runs in the win. Patrick O’Sullivan and Wade Boudrias also had hits. McNeil, O’Sullivan, Kaluza and Boudrias each had two runs while Carter Hamer, Van Noort, Bertrand, Audet and James each scored one run. Bertrand went the distance on the mound for the win. Over six innings, he gave up three runs on five hits, walking two and striking out three.

In the final, the Eagles faced the Alberta champions from Lethbridge, who won the national crown with a 6-2 win. Lethbridge rode the pitching of Joseph Seo, who struck out 16 batters in seven innings, giving up two unearned runs on five hits for the win. Lethbridge scored a run in the first and three in the second to take a 4-0 lead. The Eagles got on the board in the bottom of the third. Van Noort reached on an error by Seo, and then Carter Hamer doubled. Van Noort scored from third on a dropped third strike. The Eagles fell behind 6-1 in the sixth, as Lethbridge scored two more runs. They did get one back in the bottom of the sixth, As Wade Boudrias reached on an error and scofred on a single by Coleson Kaluza. Hamer had two hits for the Eagles with one each

After winning the District 2 title, the East Nepean Eagles are playing well at the Ontario Junior Little League baseball championships in Oakville. After their first game was rained out Wed., July 17, the Eagles opened the tournament up July 18 with a 12-4 win over the Orleans Blues. The Eagles followed that win with a 13-1 drubbing of the Timmins Lynx. On July 20, the Eagles won a high-scoring 20-11 decision over the Windsor South Blue Sox. The Eagles

beat the Mississippi Whitecaps 17-2 in their fourth game. The Eagles suffered their only loss of the tournament in a battle for first place, as the host Oakville Whitecaps were 13-2 winners. The semi-finals were played last Tuesday, with the Eagles losing a tough 6-5 decision to the South Ottawa Blues. In the final the next day, Oakville beat the Blues 14-2 to win the Ontario crown and earn a spot in the Canadian championships.
