Energy Corridor is a Nation-Building Enterprise Isn’t it crazy we can’t sell Canadian energy to Canadian consumers? Canada has achieved the impossible in energy economics: Our consumers pay sky-high costs and our energy companies get rock-bottom prices. With no pipeline, western oil can’t reach eastern refineries. So in the west, we sell low to the Americans; and in the east we buy high from Saudis and Algerians. Lose-lose. Andrew Scheer has a solution—the Canada Energy Corridor: a government-approved right-of-way for private business to build pipelines, transmission lines, and rail-lines across Canada. Business would not

need taxpayer assistance because these are profitable commercial infrastructure projects funded by user fees on energy companies. Canadian consumers could pay less, and our companies could make more, if Canadians could sell energy to each other. It is a win-win-win: jobs for western energy workers, eastern refinery workers and Ontario steel workers; transmission lines to get cheap, pollution-free Quebec and Manitoba hydro to other Canadians; and billions of tax-dollars for hospitals and schools.

Twenty-four years after it appeared as a sketch in a CAUSE report, the Mahogany Dock in Manotick was finally launched Sat., Aug. 17. On hand to officially open the Mahogany Dock were Gary Coulombe of the Manotick Kiwanis Club, Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari, Manotick BIA President Dr. Salima Ismail, Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt, and Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson.

Supporting students critical to affordable living Back to school. It’s a time of excitement, anxiety, and anticipation for students, their families and our community. As a teacher in this area, I’ve had the honour of getting to know many local young people and helping them reach their goals. As your next Member of Parliament, I’ll continue to support their success because I know first-hand that education is the key to individual prosperity and a strong, resilient economy. My career in education has been as diverse as the field of education itself. For the past couple of years, I’ve taught at South Carleton High School in Richmond. I’ve also spent time at Osgoode Township High School and was fortunate enough to do my teacher training at Metcalfe Public School and Munster Elementary School. Previously, I taught at Algonquin College and led professional development sessions as a federal public servant. Throughout this experience, I’ve seen the direct links between education, self-reliance and prosperity. No one, however, takes this path to success alone. For many, obstacles such as affordability, accessibility and a variety of personal circumstances

By Chris Rodgers

still exist.

That’s why I’m proud that in the last four years, the Liberal government has taken the following concrete actions to help students overcome these obstacles: • • • • •

Roughly 600 local student jobs right here in Carleton under the Canada Summer Jobs program. Canada Student Grants increased by 50% for low, middle-income and part-time students. New six-month interest-free grace period after graduation No loan payments until students earn at least $24,000 per year. Lower interest rates on loans for students and apprentices, saving $2,000 on average.

These new policies mean more students and apprentices come out of their training with less debt, less anxiety and more confidence. They give our young people a better chance to begin their

careers on a solid footing and start contributing to the local economy. I believe that all young people should have the opportunity to pursue an education—especially accessible and affordable public education—free from unnecessary obstacles and anxieties.

Sadly, some conservative politicians today, notably Andrew Scheer and Doug Ford, want to weaken public education. I’m drawn to point out the stark contrast between their view, and the achievements of former Progressive Conservative Premier— and Minister of Education—Bill Davis, who invested heavily in education and oversaw the development of Ontario’s system of community colleges. Premier Davis knew then, as we know today, that long-term prosperity requires investment in education, not cuts. He knew that when the middle class does well, Canada does well. Back-to-school time is always important to me, but this is a very special year for me and my wife Jenny. Our son Cameron is starting junior kindergarten. From my family to yours, I wish you a very happy, safe and successful school year.

After nearly a quarter century, Mahogany Dock is a reality

It has been 24 years in the making, but Manotick finally has a dock. The official opening of the Mahogany Dock took place Sat., Aug. 17, before A Taste of Manotick. The dock was originally conceived in 1995 as a sketch in a CAUSE report. “Yes, 24 years ago,” said Laura Glasper, who was filling in to give the opening address for Anne Robinson of the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association. Robinson was battling pneumonia and was unable to attend the ceremony. “It’s taken a good bit of time, with a few bumps in the road, but we’re here.” Glasper shared a story of how the Robinsons decided to take their 99-year-old neighbour to see the Mahogany Dock during this year’s Victoria Day weekend. The man has been a resident of the village since the 1950s. “He loves to share a story that when he and his wife went to get a mortgage for their lot in the Village, Manotick was considered a ‘depressed area’, so he’s seen a lot of changes, and he was keen to see the new dock,” Glasper said.

When arriving at the site, Anne Robinson met a couple who were sitting in the red Adirondack chairs. “The woman was from the City and she explained that she drives to Manotick several times a week; she and her husband park their car at Watson’s Mill,” explained Glasper, “She wondered aloud if that was okay? They bring their picnic lunch, and they walk to the Mahogany Landing. They find the park so peaceful. You see, he has Alzheimer’s. She hoped it was a ‘public’ space. She hoped that they could continue to visit and enjoy the area, and would I thank those who created this precious place.” There were several people and groups in the community who were thanked. They included: • To the City of Ottawa – especially to Councillor Scott Moffatt who was absolutely unwavering in his support, and to Council for both their project and financial endorsement. Also thanked were city staffers John Smit, Geraldine Wildman, Joseph Langiano, Julie Jackson (for the tree planting), Scott Muir, Travis Droeske, Chris

Also thanked for their support expertise were Lee Atkinson, Leekor Engineering; Richard Turpin, Techno-Metal Post; Ben Mortimer, Paterson Group, and Ron Robinson, Annis, O’Sullivan Vollebekk, Ontario Land Surveyors. Local historian and Messenger columnist Larry Ellis, the Rideau Township Historical Society and Georgie Tupper, Rideau Branch, Ottawa Archives, were thanked for digging deep

for the info on Manotick’s elevator, a significant piece in the puzzle in pursuit of the Parks Canada permit. And to construct a permanent dock facility on the Rideau, approvals and permits were needed from both Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and Parks Canada. The approval from RVCA was quick and their early comments very helpful. Many thanks to RVCA’s Hal Stimson and Glen MacDonald, and to Craig Cunningham at Parks Canada. “Finally, in closing, as MCPRA hands the dock over to the City, to be cared for and operated by City staff, we want you to know that the variety of people enjoying this space is even beyond our expectations, “Glasper said. “The swimmers, the picnic people, the boaters, grandpa fishing with his granddaughter, the employee who needs a break, the visitors from afar – finally, we don’t just drive by this heritage waterway, we have embraced it.”

Life can be difficult, leave no questions unanswered

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 Redding’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 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 refreshing 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.

Reader says thank you to Ottawa South United for tourney

The Editor, Thank you Ottawa South United soccer. This weekend was the Barrhaven United soccer tournament at the Manotick soccer field. There was an outstanding attendance at both Saturday and Sunday scheduled games for the

younger age groups — so many volunteers of all ages, teens to adults, to help with parking, a barbecue and refreshments and beverages for purchase; tremendous support from family members to cheer the children on. But most of all the out-

standing coaches and helpers to develop these very young athletes into the teams that played their best. As a grandparent watching my 8- and 6-year-old

granddaughters play with their teammates, I was so impressed with the guidance and cheering on from their coaches. Kudos to them!

Muriel Carruthers Embrun-Morewood

Editor’s Note – Thank you Muriel. While we were unable to attend the first

weekend of the tournament, we were at the second weekend of it. To see our photos, visit the Barrhaven Independent Facebook page.

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT There is no Jody Wilson-Raybould or Gerald Butts at City Hall

In my most recent column two weeks ago, I spoke of the current climate at City Hall. If you have not had a chance to read that one, I encourage you to do so because it will help you understand some of the dynamics surrounding the LRT Stage 2 debate in recent months. This column is entirely dedicated to the Stage 2 contract, which was awarded earlier this year to TransitNEXT, a wholly owned subsidiary of SNCLavalin. The timeline for this contract happens to span the last three terms of Council, including the present one. On December 19, 2012, Council approved the Design, Build, Finance & Maintenance of Ottawa’s Light Rail Project, otherwise known as Stage 1. The procurement model for Stage 2 was adapted from Stage 1. On March 8, 2017, Council approved a report on “Stage 2 LRT Implementation” which included the procurement model for both the Confederation Line extensions and the Trillium Line extension. The Trillium Line is the extension of the existing north-south O-Train line. The Confederation Line is the east-west line. The Trillium Line extension has been the contentious one and that is what I will focus on. The debate at Council in March 2017 centered mainly on the acquisition of property and the extensions themselves. Members of Council did not discuss the


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

procurement model. While motions were tabled at the Council meeting, no motions were brought forward that would have altered the procurement model and the delegated authority to staff. In short, Council unanimously approved the process that eventually selected TransitNEXT as the builder for the Trillium Line extension as is. This is important considering the entire debate recently has been about the procurement model. The procurement process took over two years. The first step was a Request for Qualifications (RFQ). The RFQ resulted in three groups that were shortlisted to bid on the Trillium Line. In order to make it through the RFQ, the bidders had to show the technical expertise required to carry out the project. Only successful bidders carried through to the Request for Proposals (RFP) phase. TransitNEXT was one of them. As a result, the technical merits of the bidders were not a concern at that time. When the RFP award came to Council in March of this year, the procurement process was still open. That means there were key elements that had to remain confidential. Releasing that information could have jeopardized the

Council approved procurement process. It was not until recently that the procurement process closed and the scores could be released. The main point here is that the other two bidders have now signed off on the procurement process thus removing any potential liabilities, in terms of lawsuits. Members of Council knew this in March. Therefore, when some members of Council were seemingly surprised they could not learn the scores, they knew why. This is where the theatre of politics rears its ugly head. If you recall that March 2019 meeting of Council, you will recall the doubt that was planted regarding TransitNEXT’s ability to perform. Several Councillors kept asking similar questions repeatedly about the procurement process and the scoring. Staff could not answer for the reasons mentioned above. Of course, Council knew this. After all, we approved the procurement process unanimously two years earlier. New Councillors elected in 2018 get a bit of a pass but those Councillors who voted in favour of the procurement process in 2017 should have had a decent idea of what they were approving. Therefore, their surprised behavior at Council was merely a show. If it was not a show, they clearly did not read the 2017 reports to Council. I am not sure which one is more worrying. I am more of the opinion that it was for

show, meaning they were misleading the public to believe staff were refusing to answer questions. Let’s now discuss the scoring. The scoring is broken into two components; the financial submission and the technical submission. The financial component is out of 500 while the technical component is broken down to four categories: General Technical Requirements, Design Submission, Construction Submission, and Maintenance & Rehabilitation. Each of the technical categories are graded with a threshold of 70%. This is where the controversy comes in. We do not need to focus too much on the financial submissions as the TransitNEXT bid won that aspect with a score of 485 over the other bidders at 212 and 93. We can, therefore, simply focus on the technical scores. The SNC Lavalin led TransitNEXT bid exceeded the 70% threshold on the General Technical Requirements and the Construction Submission. The fell below the threshold on the other two criteria. Overall, their evaluation ended up at 67.27%. At the time the scoring was known to the bid evaluation team, they had an opportunity to reach out to SNC to clarify the scoring and to have them address some concerns, which led to the lower score, just below the threshold. Since the scoring is subjective, the evaluation team does have flexibility.

Given the weight of the scoring and the proximity to the threshold, the evaluation team felt they had the confidence to carry forward with the TransitNEXT bid. Their ability to do this was contained in the procurement process. In the end, the overall scoring had TransitNEXT at 821.35, well ahead of the other two bidders at 641.22 and 517.94. The process was followed and overseen by external lawyers as well as a Fairness Commissioner. The scores are now known and the explanation surrounding the procurement process is known as well. Would it change my vote in March 2019? It would not. As mentioned, we knew the procurement process and we approved it unanimously in 2017. We have a procurement model in place that removes politicians from the evaluation process. The reason for that is to avoid political interference and potential corruption. Imagine if a member of Council pushes to have the bid from TransitNEXT rejected because of SNC Lavalin’s involvement and yet they received a campaign donation from one of the other bid teams. It is not impossible considering the local contractors on the other two bids. Avoiding the appearance of corruption is a wise choice. Delegating authority for procurement matters achieves that. The process was not flawed. Some people just did not like the outcome. Why?

It is my belief that this entire issue comes down to one thing and one thing only: SNC Lavalin. If this were any other company involved, we would not have this controversy. Due to the issues on Parliament Hill with SNC Lavalin and the upcoming Federal Election, there is a lot of negative attention surrounding SNC Lavalin. We simply cannot deny a contract based on what is happening on Parliament Hill. The reality is that City Hall is not the PMO. There is no Jody Wilson-Raybould at City Hall. There is no Gerald Butts. This standard procurement process yielded the best result for progress and for taxpayers. I have full confidence in that process and in the outcome. Everything else is just a convenient distraction for those politicians wishing to create one. All of the reports mentioned in this column are available if you wish to read them. The procurement documents are also now available for public consumption. The Stage 1 contract is also a public document and the Stage 2 contract will be as well.

As Chair of the Manotick BIA, I am so proud of each and every Business in our Village! We are so lucky in Manotick to have Businesses who are community centred. They all put so much time, thought and energy into coming out for A Taste Of Manotick, ensuring to make your experience amazing! Thank you to all our Businesses in our Village for your generous nature! I would also like to thank Dez for another successful car show in the Manotick Mews and all the support from the Manotick Mews Businesses to make the car show happen! Hats off to our SPECTACULAR MBIA Executive Director, Donna Smith. Donna works so hard to make sure the event goes off without a hitch! From planning to permits, bands to entertainment, she does it all! I want to thank Donna and her team for organizing such an incredible event!

In our Village, we cannot facilitate any major events without our Amazing Manotick Kiwanis. President Gary and his outstanding crew of volunteers provided us with great help during this year’s Taste of Manotick. I would like to Thank each and every Kiwanian for all their help during such an important MBIA event. This was an especially important weekend because we had a momentous occasion which was the official opening of our Mahogany Harbour Dock Launch! This historic event took years in the making!, Thousands of hours and hundreds of people through the years made it possible to reach this Manotick Milestone! I would like to thank each and every Person, Leader, Association, Business and Organization; past and present, for making this dream come true for all of Manotick!

Particularly for our Businesses, having The Dock installed, means more visitors to our Village. Suffice to say, working with all the community groups under one umbrella to get this Dock FINALLY done, was an absolute necessity. I would like to acknowledge Anne Robinson! Anne took this project and turned all obstacles ( from the depth of the water, to funding this project, to past grain elevators, etc) into achievements! Anne realized the need for the dock for the community, for the village and for our Manotick Businesses. Thus, bringing us together to work for a common goal. It took literally a village to pull this all together! I would also like to acknowledge Michael Mirsky and Leslie Coates, our Business leaders from the past to our Fantastic Executive Director , Donna Smith, who worked diligently to get this project

off the ground! During the Launch we had Brilliant Photographs from Rod Brazier, Greg Newton and Vivianne Mitchell. The Champagne was chilled and served by Dr. Victoria Clarke and Catherine Landry.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Dancer Paige Forrester ready to perform on the Majesty of the Seas By Jeff Morris

For Paige Forrester, the next six months will be the adventure of a lifetime. The 18-year-old from Manotick is in Miami, preparing for her stint as a dancer with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. “I’ve never been on a cruise ship, so I’m really excited about this, and I’m excited about meeting other dancers and performers from all over the world,” said the Canterbury High School graduate. The odyssey for Forrester actually began a year ago at the Starpower National Dance Championship in Ocean City, Maryland. The Denise Smith School of Dance team won the overall title at the event, and Forrester was First Runner Up for Miss Starpower. Because

of the competition’s affiliation with Royal Caribbean, some of the dancers were able to audition for a job with the cruise line. Forrester, Chelsea Field, Alicia Boxma and Alex St. Laurent all had successful auditions. Dancers have to be 18 in order to work as a dancer on a ship. Forrester, who is now 18, recently graduated from Canterbury High School’s dance program and signed her contract. You could say that dancing is in Forrester’s blood. Her grandmother, Denise Smith, started the Denise Smith School of Dance 40 years ago and her mother, Chemay, grew up dancing in the studio and became an instructor, coaching the team that won the title in Ocean City last year. “I’m 18 and I have been dancing for 16 years,” she said. “Instead of going to

South Carleton I went to Canterbury for their dance program, and I trained in modern and ballet there, as well as company dance, where I learned how to create a piece. And I was dancing at the studio as well during that time.” Forrester left for Miami last week for six weeks of training and preparation. She leaves on board the Majesty of the Seas in September, and will be a performer on the ship until April, 2020.

After her graduation from Canterbury High School, she was offered a contract by the cruise line.

dancer continues from page 10 During the winter, she will have an option to renew her contract. Although she wants to dance, there will be a decision to make, as she has to think about school. “I was going to go to school and work at the studio,” she said. “I was accepted at Carleton for criminology and criminal justice. I deferred for a year.” Growing up in the studio, Forrester was influenced by a number of the dancers there who went on to bigger and greater things. Ashley Wright was someone she looked up to, and Deirdre Barnes was someone who she not only looked up to, but who also taught her. Barnes was featured in the Messenger two years ago as she was one of the 12 dancers selected out of more than 1,000 to be on stage with Britney Spears on her tour. She also appeared as a dancer on the TV show, Dancing with the Stars. “It’s great to see that some of the dancers started along the same path I am on, and then went to Canterbury and danced at the studio and have gone onto bigger and better things,” she said. “In dance there are so many different styles and it is so broad. Everybody has their thing and it’s so cool to see how everybody is so good at their thing. And there are so many paths you can take. Maybe you are good at jazz or hip hop or contemporary, and you can go to New York or LA, or maybe a cruise ship. There are a lot of paths and opportunities for you to take.” Forrester is happy her path will land her on the ocean. “It’s an amazing opportunity,” said. “It’s going to be really exciting!” Manotick’s Paige Forrester will be dancing on Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of the Seas.

This fall is going to be a busy one for the City. We expect the Confederation Line will open to transit users, and we’ll have a clearer picture of the looming cuts from Queen’s Park to municipalities and Councillors will begin setting their budget priorities for 2020. Although many in Manotick and the surrounding area might not use public transit regularly, LRT impacts us all. Mass transit is essential; it means fewer personal vehicles on the road, greater access to the broader city for those without a vehicle and a reduction in pollution. With

WARD REPORT by Carole Anne Meehan

that said, there are some things we need to remember. First and foremost, LRT costs City taxpayers billions of dollars. We are using development charges, gas taxes, property tax revenue, fares and debt to pay for LRT. As a result, our financial hands are tied when it comes to other priorities. Stage One is already more than a year behind schedule and

work has started on Stage Two. Once LRT is online, riders can expect a 2.5% fare increase, which was deferred from July 1st to accommodate the delay in LRT operation. The City’s problems do not end with the opening of the Confederation Line. Municipalities across the province are gearing up for financial hardship. Earlier this year, Queen’s Park initially planned significant cuts to social services, Public Health Agencies and other provincially supported programs to eliminate an annual $12 billion provincial deficit which costs

taxpayers $1 billion in interest payments monthly. After intense pressure, the cuts were delayed until next year. It is important to remember that there is only one taxpayer, and although I do not think it is fair to see municipalities shoulder more of the burden, we have no choice. I published an OP-ED in the Ottawa Citizen, suggesting that Ottawa should have taken the province up on its offer to have an independent third-party auditor review the City’s finances. I still believe it could have been valuable. It would have been better for City Council to iden-

tify areas that we could have reduced spending so we could protect other important core services. City Council did not take the province up on the offer. However, it is not too late to review our spending. The Premier has already announced that cuts are coming, and we owe it to our residents to protect the services and programs that are important to them. The 2019 Budget saw an additional 1% property tax increase to eliminate the infrastructure funding gap, such as increased road renewal work. I put a motion forward earlier this year to spend an

additional $57 million in Federal Gas Tax money on infrastructure projects. We should hear of the outcome of my proposal this fall. Each year the City exceeds the Winter Maintenance budget by millions of dollars. With the financial pressures coming in 2020, I want to see better plowing and better use of our tax dollars. Road repairs and winter plowing are two areas where more money must be spent to improve service. Ensuring the provincial cuts do not impair the City’s ability to enhance these services is paramount.

Quilting Guild invites you to a bed turning in Kemptville

If you’ve never been to a bed turning, it’s time. The Kemptville Quilt Guild invites you to come and see what it’s all about. Bed turning is a unique and traditional way of telling the story of quilts. Way back, when women had time to sit and sew, when clothes wore out but material was still useable,

when women didn’t often see friends over the long winter months, they sat and quilted. After those quiet months, women wanted to see friends, see new quilt designs, how colours were mixed — and so bed turnings were planned. With a lot of women in one house, there wasn’t a proper place

to display quilts, so, one after another, they layered them on a bed. Each woman took a turn telling her story, talking about the fabric, the design, the problems she had — and got to brag a bit. Come on out to the Kemptville Pentecostal Church on Monday, September 9, and experience a bed turning for your-

self; meet friends, nibble on cake, have a cup of tea and watch the art unfold before your eyes. Some of the quilts are old — Nancy Grundy, program convener of the event, is showing off her great-grandmother’s 1914 quilt. Some of them are new. Look out for hand quilting, machine quilting and

tied quilts; all are distinctive, some quirky, all in a class by themselves. Twenty quilts will be layered. As each is held up, a short description will be narrated by the owner/ quilter, or by Grundy. Kemptville Quilt Guild meets the second Monday of each month except July and August; join for only

The MessengerCOMMUNITY St Philip’s Parish 200th Anniversary year will finish with Panache

The theme for St Philip’s parish 200th Anniversary year was “Pray, Love, Celebrate”. This exciting year, led by the Pastor, Father Bob Poole, has been divided into three themes and seasons. The first, “Pray” portion included the Blessings of the Animals service, “Unlocking the Mysteries of the Bible” class, an Alpha Youth program, the creation of a Remembrance Book, and the collection and publication of a “200 Prayers for 200 Years” booklet. The “Love” season involved a viewing of Richmond: The Movie, a Peru Mission fundraiser, as well as the actual Peru mission itself, in which eight parishioners travelled to poor areas of Peru to distribute clothes, shoes, toys, and

toiletries, all in the love of Jesus. Meanwhile, a whole new set of ceiling lights were installed in the church and a beautiful new stained glass window was installed in the parish hall by the Euchre club, and various retreat and mission events were undertaken, as well as presentations from the St Vincent de Paul Society, Catholic Women’s League, Knights of Columbus, and the parish Pastoral Outreach, showing the contribution of the parish organizations to help the poor and needy in our world. The “Celebrate” part of the year included a parish Fun Day, involving a barbeque, a Bouncy Castle, and various slides and obstacle courses. In June, an Afternoon Tea was held, featuring

1819 period décor, and celebrating the theme of “God is for All Time”. A service was held to honor Deacons Louis and Mark on the 10thanniversary of their ordination. There was also an exhibition of Eucharistic Miracles, followed by a procession of the Blessed Sacrament on the Feast of Corpus Christi. There was a Mass of Hope and Healing in August for the sick and shut-ins of the parish, and many more activities too numerous to list. To complete this very active and exciting year, the parish is planning a weekend retreat at the beginning of September, followed by a Gala Dinner-Dance on Saturday September 21st, with the theme of “”Our Holy Harvest “. The celebration dinner will involve a

formal four-course meal followed by a dance with the McSheffrey Band. On Sunday, September 29th, the actual closing day of the 200th Anniversary year, the parish is planning a grand celebration at the 10:30 am Mass, with Archbishop Prendergast presiding. About 30 clerical and political dignitaries have been invited to take part in the celebration. The mass will be followed by a Parish Brunch reception. According to Father Bob, these final events will complete a very special, historic and celebratory year.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Looking for feedback on the village revitalization plan draft

There is still time to provide feedback to the Task Force on Revitalization of the Village on their draft plan to revitalize the village core. The plan was crafted after two years of study by the Task Force, which is made up of representatives from local community groups, the Manotick Business Improvement Area (BIA) and resident volunteers. The draft plan provides an overview of research used to develop the plan along with key priorities for implementation. The priorities include attracting new businesses, addressing parking needs, improving the look of Main Street, improving communications about village events and finding ways to increase pedestrian safety and access. You can read it, along with background information, at www.manotickvca. org/village-core-revitalization The deadline for comments is September 10.

Update on City of Ottawa Official Plan

The City tabled a motion at a joint meeting of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee and the Planning Committee on August 22 to host a series of joint public consultations on the Official Plan. The new Official Plan will be the guiding document for planning until 2046. Public consultation started earlier this year and City staff have been gathering input to develop the next round of consultation documents.


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

The latest document, called “5Big Moves”, outlines five main policy areas that will be used to develop comprehensive policy directions for the Plan. The City is looking for feedback from City residents during the month of September on the following five main areas: • Growth: Achieve, by the end of the Plan’s planning period, more growth by intensification than by greenfield development. This growth will provide for complete communities and a variety of affordable housing options. • Mobility: By 2046, the majority of trips in the City of Ottawa will be made by sustainable transportation (walking, cycling and public transportation). • Urban Design: Improve our sophistication in urban and community design, and put this knowledge to the service of good urbanism at all scales, from the largest to the very small. • Resiliency: Embed public health, environmental climate and energy resiliency into the framework of our planning policies. • Economy: Embed economic development into the framework of our planning policies These areas are based on comments received from over 2,000 residents.

Those comments identified the following as key issues: protecting the natural environment; making transit reliable, accessible, affordable, convenient and comfortable; proactively addressing climate change, and; proactively addressing housing affordability. The feedback received on these five areas will guide draft policy directions to be presented to a joint meeting of ARAC and Planning in December.

by Phill Potter

to this day would have to be this year’s golf season. I began the year with a 13 handicap. By the end of the season, I was down to a 3.7. I also qualified for OFSAA as a singles player in the high school division. I won the East NCSAA at Emerald Links, and I also won the NCSAA qualifiers for OFSAA at my home course, which is Rideau View Golf Club. At OFSAA I tied 7th overall in my division out of 57 golfers in the entire Province, and came t45 out of 120 players which qualified in all of Ontario.” Activities and Interests: “I love to play all sports. At school I played on the basketball, volleyball, golf team, co-

ed volleyball team and beach volleyball team, and also a Link Crew Leader this past year. I also enjoy going to the cottage and chilling with my friends.” Why do I get involved in what I do? I love sports and the idea of being part of a team. I’m also very active and VERY competitive, so the two go well together. When I was younger, my dad got me into golf. He cut down his old clubs and regripped them, so I could use them and hit a ball around when I was as young as a year and a half. I also started hockey at a very young age. I believe this is what started me off for my love of sports, and teams in general.” Career Goals: “I’m going to Carleton University for Engineering this fall, and very excited to see where this takes me.”

Mitchell Rintoul was the NCSSAA city champion golfer.

St. Francis Xavier High School grad making an impact with Tiger-Cats By Jeff Morris It was a coming home of sorts for Tunde Adeleke on Sat., Aug. 17. The third year CFL defensive back was back at TD Place Stadium with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as they took on the Ottawa Redblacks. Being on the TD Place Stadium field always brings back a lot of memories for Adeleke, who took part in three Panda Games as a member of the Carleton Ravens. It also gives the St. Francis Xavier High School graduate a chance to play in front of family in friends at home. “It’s always special to come back and play here,” Adeleke said. Adeleke was drafted by the Calgary Stampeders and spent two seasons there, playing in the Grey Cup both years. In 2017, Adeleke and the Stampeders lost a heartbreaker to the Toronto Argonauts in Ottawa. Last year, the Stampeders won the championship with a win over the Ottawa Redblacks. In the offseason, Adeleke tested the free agent waters and decided to head east and ended up in Hamilton. Adeleke is currently third on the Tiger-Cats in tackling. Although he made his name primarily as a record-setting and electrifying kick and punt returner at Carleton, he is enjoying focusing primarily on playing safety. Adeleke was an all-star defensive back at Carleton, something that is often overshadowed by his electrifying kick returns. In his senior year at Carleton, Adeleke scored five touchdowns on kick and punt returns. One record he

holds that cannot be broken is a 129-yard touchdown on a missed field goal – the longest possible return. One other player also accomplished that feat – Adeleke’s St. Francis Xavier High School teammate Nate Hamlin. Adeleke, Hamlin and another St. Francis Xavier Coyote, Ryan Kublek, all ended up at Carleton. Adeleke and Hamlin both ended up in the CFL, while Kublek is now an assistant coach with the Ravens. “Nate and I talked about it a lot when we were deciding where to go to school,” Adeleke said. “We were constantly asking each other, ‘did you sign yet?’ But when you

look at the recruiting process, it was really Ryan Kublek who was really doing most of the recruiting.” Adeleke had played minor football in the Gloucester South Raiders program and OVFL football with the Myers Riders. His high school football team, however, played a huge role in Adeleke’s development. “(St. Francis Xavier coaches) Geoff Hamlin and Mark Jennings played a big role in my development as a player,” Adeleke said. “I had always primarily been a running back or a receiver, but they really got me to explore playing on the defensive side of the ball and taught me how to be a

DB.” “We knew the first year would be tough and it would be a learning experience, but we knew things would get better,” he said. While Jesse Mills’ pass to Nate Behar on the last play of the 2014 Panda Game may be the most famous play in Carleton football history, Adeleke looks back to Western for his

most memorable moment as a Raven. “The Hail Mary in the Panda Game was a big moment, but for me, the thing that meant the most was the first time we beat Western. That, to me, was like, this is where we started, losing 71-4 to this team in our first game, and this is how far we’ve come.” That 38-31 win in Carle-

ton’s 2016 home opener paved the way for a 6-2 record in the regular season. Adeleke is hoping to play in a third straight Grey Cup and win another ring. “It was tough to leave Calgary after winning a Grey Cup, but the plan since I arrived in Hamilton was always to get back and win another one,” he said.

St. Francis Xavier High School graduate Tunde Adeleke is in his third year in the CFL. He is currently third on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in tackles and has two interceptions. Gord Weber photo
