Roads, traffic a top priority for Meehan as new city council is sworn in By Charlie Senack The work has just begun for Ottawa’s newest members of city council who took the oath to office during a ceremony held at the Shaw Centre on December 3. There are 23 councillors total — seven of which are newly elected. Among the new names on the list is Carol Anne Meehan who is known for the 27 years she spent as co-anchor of the six o’clock news on CTV Ottawa before abruptly being let go just over three years ago. Her life has changed a lot since then. The mother of two started her own blog, and became a talk show host on 1310 News. When Meehan decided her heart was looking for something new and different, the Beryl Gaffney Park resident decided to take a run for council in Gloucester South-Nepean. The former media personality won the October 22nd municipal election with 42.5 per cent of the vote, beating incumbent Michael Qaqish who garnered 38.7 per cent. Now more than a month after the election, newly elected Councillor Meehan said reality is starting to sink in. “I looked around on the stage and I looked around at all the colleagues I was elected along with I think then it finally sunk in that I am really a part of this special group that are now trusted in doing

things that benefit the citizens of Ottawa,” she said. Over the next four years, Meehan has a number of issues she would like to tackle, including traffic and transportation in the ward. She would like to see more people taking public transit, and would like to see rush hour traffic decrease. “We have to widen our roads,” Meehan said. “People don’t like to hear that, but the fact of the matter is we put 20,000 people out with the old existing roads. People say ‘if you widen the roads, you’re going to have more traffic,’ but the bottom line is these roads that we do have are full of pot holes.” One of the big decisions city council will be facing is whether or not to opt in or opt out of private pot sales. Meehan would like to see the city opt out — at least for now. “We can opt out for now as a bargaining tool to the province to get more say on the number of pot shops that we can put up in the city or wherever we want them located, and also negotiate with the province to be able to get a better share of the revenue,” Meehan said. “If we get those things we can just say we are opening the stores. Let’s move it as a bargaining chip right now.” Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder, who won her seventh term on council, said she has known Meehan for a long time and looks forward to working

Roads, traffic and transportation top priorities for Moffatt’s third term By Charlie Senack

Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt has been elected for his third term, and already has lots of ideas on how to make Ottawa a better city. First elected in 2010, Moffatt, the father of four, said council has changed a lot in the past three terms. When he was first elected, five of the newbie elects were under the

age of 40 — paving the way to a younger and more inclusive council. He was officially sworn in to his third term on December 3 alongside seven new councillors and 15 other incumbents. Making roads and traffic a number one priority, Moffatt would like to work heavily on planning policy — especially with setting the transportation phase master plan.

“One of the issues will always be roads (and) it will always be infrastructure renewal,” Moffatt said. “Whether that’s parks or buildings or roads but obviously roads come up so often.” Phase one of light trail transit is expected to open in the first quarter of 2019, but it won’t play a big role for areas like Manotick and Riverside South until 2022 or

2023. That’s when the Trillium line is expected to be expanded out to Limebank road and the airport. “You can’t get out to the suburbs without starting from the centre,” the threeterm councillor said. “Getting light rail out to Moodie Drive, Baseline Station, down to Riverside South, this will have a much more significant impact on residents.” One of the biggest decisions council will have to face in the coming weeks is

whether to opt in or opt out of private cannabis sales. Moffatt says their is no reason to opt, and says it won’t encourage youth to try it. What Moffatt would like to see, however, is the municipalities have more control over how the private stores would operate. “Personally, I’d love to have more of a role when it comes to zoning,” he said. “We had some concerns around the payday loan lenders and we developed a

policy where we can restrict where they are or how many are in the same place. I think it would be nice to have that same ability with pot shops. I get that we don’t but that doesn’t mean that we can’t ask (the provincial government) for it.” Moffatt was sworn in alongside his new neighbor Carol Anne Meehan in Gloucester South-Nepean, and Osgoode councillor George Darouze who is serving his second term.

Moffatt returned as Councillor for Rideau-Goulbourn

On December 3rd, I had the great privilege of being sworn in as the Councillor for Rideau-Goulbourn for the third time. In the week since, we have gotten to work on the business of setting out the governance for this term of Council. This week, we will confirm Committee memberships and appoint Chairs of the Committees. We will also debate the matter of retail cannabis sales. By the time you have read this, Council may have already made a decision on that front as that Council meeting is being held on Thursday, December 13th. Following the three Council meetings in early December, the Christmas break will be upon us. In the new year, the new Committees will begin their work with focus on developing the term of Council priorities and preparing the 2019 Budget.

the St. Louis passengers in that country at renewed risk. It was determined through records that 254 of them were murdered during the Holocaust. Sonja Geismar was four years old when the Nazis carried out the Kristallnacht slaughter of more than 90 Jewish Germans in 1938. Yet, she remembers it vividly. Geismar talked about the dilemma facing Jews from Germany and throughout Europe during the war. “Do you leave, or do you FROM THE stay?” she said. “And if you stay, when do you leave? And if you leave, where do you go?” She noted that earlier in 1938 at the Evian Conference, Bolivia and the Dominican Reby Jeff Morris public were the only two countries that stepped forward and said they would accept Jewish refugees. “Anti-Semetism extended far beyond Europe,” she said. But Nazi Germany took anti-Semetism to an inhumane level. Businesses were destroyed, property and belongings were confiscated, and synagogues were burned to the ground. Some Jews were imprisoned, and many were murdered. Six months after Kristallnacht, Geismar and her family boarded the MS St. Louis, a luxury cruise ship that was intended to comfortably deliver its passengers to a safe haven. Unfortunately, the ship remained in the dock at Cuba, while the confused passengers were denied the ability to get off the ship. Eventually, the ship turned away and (February 15) each year for the next three years.

Qaqish says working with Syrian refugees most rewarding part of term While the new Ottawa city council has been sworn in, it was time to say good-bye to the outgoing councillors. Michael Qaqish, who won the Ward 22 Gloucester-South Nepean riding in the 2014 election, was unseated by former CTV media personality and longtime local resident Carol Anne Meehan in the October 22 municipal election. “He has done wonderful work during this term as special liaison for refugees,” said Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson. The mayor said Qaqish helped coordinate between various levels of government and non-governmental organizations to provide housing, language training, health services and employment opportunities, resulting in integration of close to 3,000 Syrian refugees who now call Ottawa their home. Watson also said that Qaqish worked hard for increased infrastructure in Ward 22. “Councillor Qaqish

was a strong advocate for investments in local infrastructure, on Prince of Wales, Greenbank and Chapman Mills, and he also saw through the completion of the Barrhaven Rail Safety Program,” Watson said. “In Findlay Creek, Councillor Qaqish was instrumental in advancing the widening of Bank Street by more than five years. In Riverside South, Michael helped secure and funding for a new community centre, library and pool, and was also involved in the creation of the Riverside South Farmer’s Market. He was also a strong voice to bring light rail to all three of these communities.” Watson presented Qaqish with a photo of the Chapman Mills Conservation Area. Qaqish started his career at City Hall as a 23-year-old city staffer and worked in the office of Ward 22 Councillor Steve Desroches for four years. “I have loved every minute of it,” Qaqish said

Walk ins Welcome

of his tenure at City Hall. “I love this organization and I love the people that make up this organization from the city manager at the top all the way through the city staff.” Qaqish praised the city staff for their work on numerous projects. “I think of all the projects we have worked on in the four short years,” he said, referencing the infrastructure upgrades the Mayor had mentioned. “Bank was not in the books until 2026 so imagine that you come in and you think you can’t do anything about something for that period of time. But we got together, we brought the stakeholders, the landowners, Mr. Manconi, our colleagues in the south end like (Osgoode Councillor) George

Darouze, and we rolled up our sleeves and we came up with solutions.” Qaqish also noted that the library and community centre were not supposed to be built until 2031. “We worked with Urbandale and they provided us with a discounted rate for the land we acquired,” he said. Qaqish said his most rewarding accomplishment as a councillor was his work with the Syrian refugees who arrived in Ottawa during his term. “Helping integrate those 2,700 newcomers is without a doubt the most rewarding and gratifying thing I was able to do,” Qaqish said. “Many of them are now speaking the language and are gainfully employed as a result that many of the settlement

agencies did in co-ordination with our city staff.” Qaqish thanked the city staff and the employees of his office for their work and dedication over the past four years. He also thanked the people of Gloucester-South Nepean for the opportunity to serve them as councillor. While Qaqish is not yet certain what his next career move will be, he is hoping that his next job offers the same level of gratification that being a councillor did. “The best part about the transition is not finding a job, but finding something as gratifying and rewarding, and knowing that you are going to be making a difference on a daily basis.” Qaqish also thanked the Mayor, his colleagues

on the last term of council, and his family for their support during his term as Ward 22 Councillor.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY

A collection of Christmas traditions, customs and facts Midnight Mass - The Catholic Church began celebrating midnight Mass in the early 5th century as a way of commemorating the hour of Christ’s birth, which was supposed to have been at midnight. Caroling - As a tradition, caroling began in the Roman churches in the early second century, and then spread to France, England and eventually to North America. Eggnog - Eggnog is the modern variation of wassail, a popular drink in Victorian England. It comes from the Old English expression “waes hael” meaning “to your health.” It is made of

eggs, curdled cream, nuts, spices, roasted apples and mulled ale. Christmas Bonus - Department store owner F.W.Woolworth believed that happy employees worked better under stress. He started the Christmas Bonus tradition in 1899 with $5.00 to each worker for every year of service – but not to exceed $25.00, a lot of money in those days. Reindeer - Folklore has it that originally only one reindeer pulled Santa’s sleigh. In 1823 Clement Moore gave him eight in the story “A Visit from St. Nicholas”. Another story, by Robert


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis L. May, in 1939 introduced Rudolph. Rudolph was immortalized by Gene Autry’s 1949 classic song, “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Christmas Cards - The Christmas card tradition was born during the Victorian Era, late 1800s. Nativity Scene - St. Francis of Assisi created the first “crèche” or nativity scene in

1224, symbolizing the Biblical account of Christ’s birth with hay, carved figures and live animals. Yule Log - The Yule log was a tradition started by the Celts, Teutons and Druids, who burned massive logs in winter ceremonies. In Europe and Scandinavia, the logs were lit on Christmas Eve and kept burning for

twelve days. Star - The star is symbolic of guidance. It has become the symbol of Mary – the Hebrew form of the name Mary is “Miriam” which means star. Candle - The candle symbolizes Christ as the light of the world. It is part of Christmas celebrations all over the world. Canadian Christmas Trees - Today, 98% of Canadian Christmas trees are harvested on farms while 50 years ago most were grown in forests and bush. The most popular trees are Balsam Fir, Scotch Pine and White Pine. About two and one half million trees are exported each year

with nearly all to the United States. Mistletoe - Mistletoe has long been the symbol of peace. The Romans considered it as a charm against evil; it is brewed by the French to cure stomachaches. Kissing under the mistletoe may be romantic, but caution should be taken when used as a decoration, it should be kept out of the reach of children and pets. Artificial Christmas Trees - Not new! About 100 years ago the first artificial trees were made in Germany from dyed goose feathers, in an attempt to stop the destruction of the forests.

order to stay healthy while away from home. Depending on the destination and duration of travel, it is helpful to book a consultation with a physician to discuss vaccinations Pharmacist and other disease prevention medicines required. Some items to consider taking along include treatments for diarrhea, motion sickness, fever, headaches, and wound care. Also remember bug repellant and sunscreen! While away, be sure to wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer, drink only bottled water, avoid raw/undercooked food, and stay well hydrated and rested. Enjoy your vacation!

happy times, but for some people finding the right presents, juggling various family and social events causes them stress! Stress can lead to bruxism (teeth grinding) and may lower your immunity to infections, such as gum disease. Over time bruxism can cause discomfort in the jaw and wear down teeth surfaces causing sensitivity. This habit affects 95% of adults at some time, and the leading cause is stress and tension. Try to manage and reduce stress in your life by eating well, exercising and getting plenty of sleep. Also avoid biting on pencils, fingernails, or any other foreign objects. If you are clenching your jaw or grinding, an appliance called a nightguard can be made to help reduce the trauma. For further information, please call your dental office. Dr. Fung & Dr. Harris and their Osgoode & Metcalfe dental teams would like to take this opportunity to thank all their patients for their years of dedication and trust. They wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, health and happiness for 2018!

VETERINARY SERVICES Q: What to do about Christmas trees and pets? A:

With Christmas approaching many people have questions about their decorations and Christmas trees. 1. plan location - near a plug so no long electrical cords and not in centre area so will not get knocked over. 2. prepare area - put down plastic bag to catch Dr. Andrew Sparling needles for easy clean up lowering risk of chewing D.V.M. them. 3. secure the tree - cats climb and dogs run into things - lowers that risk. 4. hide electric cords to prevent chewing, electrocution, tripping. 5. no hooks - some pets chew these. 6. safe ornaments - pets may consider these toys. 7. ribbons and tinsel can be ingested causing obstructions. 8. presents - do not put wrapped food under the tree that could be chewed up…especiallychocolate! 9. supervise - many pets will not have issues with trees but some need more supervision than others! If you have any questions about your holiday decorations, please contact your veterinary team. Happy Holidays!

The eighth place Royals travelled to Winchester to face the sixth place Hawks Friday night and then hosted the seventh place Embrun Panthers in Richmond Sunday. The Royals lost a pair of one-goal games. In Winchester on Friday, the Royals jumped out to a 4-2 lead in the first period, but would lose 6-5 in a shootout.

The Royals once again jumped into an early lead, as Josh Arts netted his fourth goal of the year from Owen Nevins and Grant Cooper. The Panthers tied the score late in the second as Mathieu Plante scored his first goal of the season on the power play from Connor Drost and Philippe Plante. The winning goal came with just 2:43 left in the third period, as Mathieu Brennan notched a power play goal from Jeremy Cyr. The Royals pushed for the equalizer, but MacEachern was solid in goal and the Royals were called for a checking to the head penalty with 2:02 left to play to put them a man down. The Royals have two Sunday afternoon home games before Christmas, as they take on Winchester dec. 16 and the Athens Aeros come to town Dec. 23. Both games are at 1:30 p.m.

Omnibus zoning amendments include rural changes

The City is looking for comment on an omnibus zoning amendment that brings together some technical adjustments to zoning by-laws and fixes some oversights that occurred with previous changes. There are a number of amendments that apply to the rural area including amendments that will correct some anomalies or errors for specific properties as well as cleaning up language in the Coach House by-laws. One amendment of interest enables homeowners on large lots in Rural Residential areas to keep up to 10 hens. Previously, it was only allowed in Agricultural or Rural Countryside zones. The omnibus also includes a by-law amendment to allow on-farm diversified uses that are secondary to the main agricultural use and are limited in size and scope. This change is in line with the non-agricultural uses permitted by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and is designed to enable farmers to diversify and supplement their income. This could include home occupations such as hairdresser or bookkeeper, home industries such as sawmill or seasonal storage of boats, agritourism uses such as petting zoo or bed and breakfast, and uses that produce value-added agricultural products such as a winery, cheese factory or bakery. Currently the zoning by-law only permits agriculture and agriculture-related uses in rural zones. These amendments are expected to go to the Planning and Agriculture and Rural Affairs committees in early 2019. You can provide comments directly to Mitchell. Lesage@ottawa.ca quoting File No. D02-02-18-0092 before January 7, 2019. Details on all the amendments can be found at https://app01.ottawa. ca/postingplans/appDetails.js f;jsessionid=973E4BFEDB7 CA922527C81257A06561E? lang=en&appId=__A8V8LE

Centennial Park Plan

The Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association (MCPRA) will be moving forward with a Centennial Park Concept Plan initiative with public consultations to take place in mid-January at the Manotick Community Centre. The plan will look at the current outdoor amenities in Centennial Park and opportunities to enhance this important Village gathering space. The MCPRA has brought together a committee of interested community and sports groups, including the MVCA, to review the concept plan once it is completed and subsequently work on updating park components such as the outdoor rink and skateboard park. For more information contact Brock Thom, Project Leader, at brock.j.thom@gmail.com

Braid says Poilievre’s comments on Trudeau Government’s budget hypocritical RE: “Carleton MP and shadow finance critic responds to fall economic statement,” Manotick Messenger, November 30, 2018 The Editor, It’s certainly no secret that what Pierre Poilievre doesn’t know about economics could fill an encyclopedia, but his comments describing how, “every year that Justin Trudeau runs deficits, he is borrowing money from future generations,” is such hypocritical nonsense it can’t be allowed to pass without comment. It was, of course, the former Harper Conservative government—in which Poilievre was a cabinet minis-

ter—that really established the practice of kicking the deficit can down the road to the next generation of taxpayers. We all remember former Conservative finance Minister Joe Oliver’s troubling response when asked by Amanda Lang about the consequences of some of his unsustainable tax breaks for the extremely wealthy. In a rare moment of candour, Oliver said to Lang, “Well, why don’t we leave that to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s granddaughter to solve that problem?” Oliver’s remark made it abundantly clear that it was Conservative party policy to provide immediate tax cuts to the one-percenters by loading

the costs onto the backs of a subsequent generation while showing zero concern for the economic consequences on that generation. The Conservative government was more than happy to create a fiscal “problem” that the next generation would have to “solve”—entirely on their own. Given that reality, it’s a bit much to now find ourselves watching Pierre Poilievre shedding crocodile tears over the possible fiscal plight of “future generations.” Where was this outpouring of compassion when his own party was unapologetically throwing them under the bus?

As a child who spent a ton of time in the water, it was easy to look up to my instructors, so I am very grateful for the chance to be that role model for other kids.”

Who is your favourite author? “For the longest time, my favourite author has been Cassandra Clare. She writes about this insane fantasy world where there are trained Shadowhunters that protect the “mundane” world. The novels are romantic, constantly exciting, and she makes you feel so connected to the characters.”

What is your Greatest Accomplishment? “In September, I had the opportunity to be a Core Leader for St. Mark’s Leadership Camp with 9 other grads.
