Local business owners discuss their challenges with Ghamari, Minister By Jeff Morris

A room full of South Carleton business leaders and local employers got the opportunity to talk about the challenges they are facing with Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation, and Trade Todd Smith last month. The meeting was set up by Progressive Conservative MPP Goldie Ghamari, who invited several local business owners to a meeting with Smith at the Rideau Carleton Entertainment Centre. “Some of the key themes that I found were the regulation for 44-and-a-half hours in a week, the issue with the Quebec border which is something I have been hearing quite often, and something that I have had come up a few times, which is the mandatory yearly WSIB training,” Ghamari said. “For

a business with zero or no turnover it is just a big administrative cost.” Smith thanked the business owners for coming to the meeting to share their concerns. “I heard some new things that I have not heard before,” Smith said. “That will give us a little bit of work to do.” While Smith said that his government has a lot of work to do since taking over from the Wynne Liberals, he did say that positive steps are being made through Ontario’s Bill 66, Restoring Ontario’s Competitiveness Act. “We have taken some positive steps in allowing businesses to thrive through Bill 66,” Smith said. One of the areas that Smith said was a starting point was the flexibility of the hours in the workplace, particularly in the agri-business and trucking industries.”

Another key theme around the table was the lack of desire to work among many of younger people and students. “As far as changing our next generation and making them want to work, it does start with our education system,” Smith said. “We need to bring in more accountability into our education system.” Smith, whose wife is a high school teacher, says he has seen first hand the failures of the system in building work ethic and responsibility among young people. “With some of the student success programs that are in now you can put off all your assignments until the very last day of school and bring them all in on the last day of school and move onto the next grade. That’s not right. It doesn’t teach kids any kind of self-responsibility.”

Provincial Government steps up to support families of children with autism MEET & GREET WITH THE HON. MINISTER TODD SMITH On Monday January 28, I was pleased to host Minister Todd Smith at the Rideau Carleton Raceway for a meet and greet with BIAs, business owners and farmers across the riding of Carleton. Minister Smith is the Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade. Over 35 people attended and each person had an opportunity to discuss issues and concerns in their particular industry. It was a very productive meeting and I would like to thank Minister Smith for taking the time to join us on such short notice.

MANOTICK SHIVERFEST & GREELY WINTER CARNIVAL On Saturday, January 26, I was glad to attend the Annual ShiverFest Winter Carnival Chili Cook-off hosted by the Manotick Village & Community Association. I sampled 20 different kinds of chili, all of which were made by local residents and businesses. It was so hard to vote for my favourite recipes because it was all so delicious! Congratulations to all the winners! I also had the opportunity to drop the puck alongside Councillor George Darouze at the annual Greely Winter Carnival Ottawa Firefighter vs Ottawa Police hockey game, hosted by the Greely Community Association.

It was a lot of fun cheering on both teams and coming out to support the men and women who put their lives on the line day in and day out in order to keep our communities safe. Thank you to Councillor George Darouze for accepting my friendly bet on the game, and congratulations to team Ottawa Police for bringing home the victory. I look forward to seeing Councillor Darouze make his $50 donation to a local charity in our community. The MVCA and GCA are voluntary, non-profit community associations that help bring the community together by hosting events, communicating local news to residents, and advocating for the community. Thank

you to all the volunteers for organizing these events and giving back to their communities. It’s always a pleasure to attend and support local events. I would be pleased to attend your business or community association event. Please contact my office for more information or go to https://goldiempp.ca/invite-goldie

ISSUES TO WATCH ONTARIO TAKES DECISIVE ACTION TO HELP MORE FAMILIES WITH AUTISM On February 6, the government announced that 23,000 children struggling while on waitlists for autism support programs will finally receive financial sup-

port to them afford autism services. This will be achieved through the widespread reform of the Ontario Autism Program designed to clear the unfair waitlist and provide equality and sustainability to the program, allowing more families of children and youth with autism can receive service. Under the proposed reforms, families may receive a Childhood Budget until their child turns 18. The amount of money they will receive is based on the amount of time a child will be in program, with support being targeted towards lower and middle income families. Over the course of the next year autism Ontario will be playing a key role in offering support to

families in order to help them understand their options and assist them in finding service providers. They will do this by providing workshops, training sessions, and one-onone support to families to assist them.

WE ARE HERE TO SERVE: My constituency office is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm and I have 4 full-time employees helping me serve the people of Carleton. If you require assistance on any matter, please contact me at any time. It’s why I’m here. Even if it’s not a provincial issue, I’ll make sure to connect you with the proper office. - Goldie Your voice at Queen’s Park

GOLDIE GHAMARI,MPP CARLETON Goldie’s story, in her own words: “My parents immigrated to Canada in 1986 – I was only one at the time. They left everything behind in Iran because they believed Canada would give their children a better life and more opportunities. My father tells me that when we landed in Montreal, we only had two suitcases and $50 to our names. My parents worked very hard to build a new life for us in Canada. As new immigrants and then Canadian citizens, they made sure to integrate themselves into Canadian society, and they instilled in my sister and I the importance of respecting and living by our Canadian values. My father comes from a farming family and he is an electrician, working daily with his hands. After staying at home to raise her two daughters, my mother now gives back to the community by working at a charity for isolated senior citizens My younger sister is an aerospace engineer. My wonderful husband Wayne teaches statistics at Carleton University. My parents taught me that the road to success comes through hard work, determination and sacrifice. We have certainly come a long way from where we started in 1986, but I will never forget our humble beginnings.”

Richmond, Munster and Ashton Town Halls moved to April

Due to some unpredictable weather recently, I have had to postpone two of our previously scheduled town hall meetings. The two were planned for Munster and Ashton. Additionally, the Richmond Village Association scheduled their Annual General Meeting on the same evening as we have scheduled a town hall meeting in Richmond. As a result, we will be rescheduling that town hall as well as the ones in Munster and Ashton. We will be looking to April to hold those three meetings. We do, however, have two upcoming meetings on the following dates: • February 26th: Marlborough Community Hall, 7:00pm • March 5th: Goulbourn Town Hall, 7:00pm

LED Street Lights in Rideau-Goulbourn

At my North Gower Town Hall, we had a discussion about LED lighting and a resident wanted to know how many LED street lights were installed in RideauGoulbourn. We have a total of 1880 streetlights in Rideau-Goulbourn. Currently, we have 193 Hydro Ottawa Retrofit lights and 215 LED lights. There are still 1472 street lights that need to be changed to LED lights. Staff anticipate all of the lights being changed in 2020.

City of Ottawa Winter Maintenance

I know residents are frustrated by the amount of snow they have been forced


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

to deal with this winter. City crews have been operating around the clock since January 19th and all resources have been deployed during snow events. The City is trying to clear and remove snow as quickly and efficiently as possible but with a record amount of snow in January, and February likely bringing a similar fate, it has been challenging. Please note that snow removal is based on a road-priority system, with high-use roads and emergency and transit routes cleared first. After the last snowflake falls, the city standard is that residential roads are cleared within 16 hours. If your street is missed, please call 311, as they are available to action your request 24/7. The City also encourages

residents to avoid parking on the street where possible, to support efficient snow removal. Please remember not to push snow onto the street as this puts others using the roadway at risk, and makes it more difficult for City plows to pass. We sincerely appreciate your help and your patience as the City continues to clean up the streets.

Ottawa Public Library and Library Archives Canada Joint Facility Project

The first in-person design workshops on Building Blocks are set for later this month and the details are as follows: Phase 1 Design Workshop: Building Blocks Participants will be invited to register for one of two design workshops on how to make best use of the site for the new joint facility: • Thursday, February 28, 6 pm to 9 pm, Jean Piggott Hall, Ottawa City Hall • Saturday, March 2, 9 am to 12 pm, location to be determined The public is invited to visit Inspire555.ca to preregister for one of the two workshops. From 2013 to 2016, more than 3,000 people provided input into the spaces and uses for a new central library. In 2016, following the deci-

sion to explore a partnership with Library and Archives Canada, the public provided input into the selection criteria for a site for the joint facility, as well as its functional programming. This is an exciting time for our City and we encourage Rideau-Goulbourn residents to have their say!

By then I will be just a skeleton sitting in a soccer mom van, holding something in my hand. The moose will be long gone and no one will know how I died. Maybe the media will think that I was trying to do some sort of Bruce Jenner self-surgery. I don’t want to be remembered that way.’ I finally got some traction and scratched off. The moose, about 10 metres behind me, faded away in the moonlight as I looked at my rearview mirror. I got to Barry’s Bay, finished peeing, and switched from Diet Coke to Red Bull. Two days later, I shared the story with some colleagues at a breakfast meeting. “Was the moose male or female?” “I don’t know.” “Did it have antlers?” “It had nubs, but I don’t think they have GROCER antlers this time of the year.” Another smart ass piped in. “Maybe it was mating season, and it was a female moose who saw you. Maybe it was turned on.” “Stop!” I pleaded. They laughed. At me, not with me. I had only been terrified while peeing one other time. It was along Route 66 near the Arizona-New Mexico border. My two sons and I were peeing against an abandoned rail car when we saw the huge skin of a rattlesnake that had been shed on the ground near us. This wasn’t just a big snake. It was like the basalisk from the second Harry Potter book. It was the fastest pee ever.

The IndependentFOCUS ON YOUTH OTHS student loves to experience culture of other cities and countries Name: Jessica Hergert Age: 17



School: Osgoode Township High Grade: 12 Parents: Dad: Jason Hergert Mom: Diane Pernari-Hergert Brother: Ryan (19), Second Year at Waterloo University. OTHS Grad. Sisters: Laura (13), Grade 8, Castor Valley Elementary. Jordan Pernari (21), Fourth Year at Queens University, OTHS Grad. Brooke Pernari (16), Grade 11 at OTHS Part-time Work: “I work at Foodland in Greely as a cashier. It’s a first step for me to help out and help propel myself forward. Though I don’t plan to pursue anything business related, it’s the beginning of helping me get to where I want to be in the future.” Favourite Subjects: “This question has always been hard for me to answer as I enjoy learning a wide variety of things. I have taken a special interest to science in my later years – whether it be biology, physics, or chemistry. This can be attributed to my interest in the medical field. I can’t rule out any of these as I haven’t found which particular one may allow me to make my most profound accomplishments.

by Phill Potter

My teachers have helped nurture my interest for these subjects as I do not think my interest would have been peaked to where it is today without them sharing their passions with me. This is not to say that I haven’t had an interest in areas such as psychology and law as well. When deciding what to pursue, this can be a dilemma. However, I would not choose any other way, as it has helped expand my perspective.” Reading for pleasure? “It can be had to find time to read, but when I do, it tends to be classics; books about monumental topics, either in the past or today. It amazes me to read the ways others have evoked change or even reading of the stark differences people possess. I also love reading these, as it challenges your own beliefs and leads to a wider view of the world. Who are your favourite authors? “The books I tend to read come from a variety of authors. When I have time to read I find myself going back to authors such as Markus Zusak, John Green, and other authors of incredible books, such as Harper Lee, and J.D. Salinger. In general, when I get the chance I love to read from a variety of authors.”

What is your Greatest Accomplishment? “Looking over my life, I’m not sure I could pick out a single accomplishment. I believe that sometimes we put things into the grand scheme, but the reality is, I am where I am today from a series of smaller accomplishments. This could be completing a year of high school with success, or being chosen to participate in events such as the Model United Nations. These are some of the things that are not just accomplishments, but opportunities to improve yourself in the future as well. This leads to what I do consider one of my biggest accomplishments. I find the most pride in the fact that I put everything I have, without fail, into everything I do in my life. This could be a school project or volunteer/school activities, and in living by the idea that it’s not sufficient enough to settle for anything less than your goals. In short, my greatest accomplishment is that there will never be an accomplishment that I stop at, because there is always room to go further, things that can be done and learned, and always new ways in which you can elicit change.”

Another club I had very much enjoyed was Model United Nations. This allowed me the opportunity to represent a country on a humanitarian front, as well as approach ways with others in which we could solve the issue realistically, taking into the opinions of many global perspectives. Another thing I’ve always had a passion for is music. I have learned to play the guitar to a considerable extent, the piano, and a couple other band instruments. It has always been a source of inspiration. I also love traveling. I’ve been to many places, and hope to go further in future. I love experiencing the cultures of other countries and cities. The experience of realizing there is more there than where I live, and learning about it, so to enrich my understanding of the world. It’s amazing and life-changing to experience things and ways of life different from your own.”

Potter continues on page 9

Are you getting the best Internet speed possible?

Activities/Interests: “One of the things I enjoy is participating in everything that I can around the school. This includes making time to the best of my ability to contribute to clubs such as Free the Children, aimed at helping people overseas get access to essential things they may not otherwise have.

Every culture offers a rich heritage with beauty and value

Multiculturalism is a term we hear every day but what does it mean? Essentially it is the presence of, or support for the presence of, several distinct cultural or ethnic groups within a society.

ourselves. We really have been blessed with unique gifts – earth and its resources but we are not using them for the benefit of all mankind. Should many starve while others have more than they know what to do with? We should not fight with each other because of religion, race, colour or belief.
