South Carleton teacher Chris Rodgers wins Liberal nomination Chris Rodgers will once again be the Liberal candidate for Carleton in the upcoming fall federal election. The Metcalfe resident and South Carleton High School teacher is confident change will come to the riding this fall. In the last federal election on Oct. 19, 2015, Rodgers lost to Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre by fewer than 2,000 votes. “In 2015, we had the third highest turnout in Canada,” Rodgers said. “We nearly tripled our vote and we had almost 26,000 votes. That tells me that people are looking for a change. “I think people really appreciated our message of positive politics,” he added. Rodgers supports the decisions the Trudeau Liberal government has implemented since being

Benefit, reducing personal income taxes and increased support for seniors incomes. Looking at federal politics locally, Rodgers feels it’s important to have strong allies with other levels of government to get things accomplished. Rodgers said if he was elected, he would like to work with municipal counterparts to help with roads and transportation congestion. “Our riding is very unique in that it has a large urban area but also a huge rural area,” he said. “One of the sort of unique issues that rural Canadians deal with is that added distance they travel from place to place in there daily lives. I’d like to be a champion in insuring our municipalities and so on have the capacity to make those investments in infrastructure resources.”

The now ninth grade French teacher has also worked in a number of different jobs, from scrubbing toilets to working in the federal public sector. Rodgers has not stopped knocking on doors since the last federal election so he could stay in tune with voters’ concerns. He feels this is his chance to be elected because he reson-

MANOTICK MESSENGER  BELL LET’S TALK Wednesday, January 30 was Bell Let’s Talk day. This incredibly important initiative started by Bell Canada aims to end the social stigma surrounding mental health, and promote mental health research, education, and awareness. I encourage everyone to join the conversation, share your experiences, and help end the stigma. For anyone who is currently suffering, please reach out to the dedicated professionals in your community. They are here to help.

Police for bringing home the victory. I look forward to seeing Councillor Darouze make his donation to a local charity in our community.

COMMUNITY EVENTS On Saturday, January 26, I had the pleasure of attending the ShiverFest Winter Carnival Chili-cookoff hosted by the Manotick Village & Community Association. I sampled 20 different kinds of chili, all made by local residents and businesses. It was so hard to choose the winning recipe! Congrats 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 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 bet on the game, and congratulations to team Ottawa

The residents of Riverside South have made their voices heard. Thanks to the dedicated work by Laurie Rogers, we have now collected over 1700 signature on our local community petition to begin construction of Riverside South’s first public high school.

PRE-BUDGET COMMITTEE On Wednesday, January 23, I was pleased to join the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs as they met with local organizations and stakeholders in preparation for our 2019 Budget. It was great to engage with, and represent Ottawa in these important discussions.

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.”

The time for input on the existing master plan for Beryl Gaffney Park closed on January 31, 2019. The plan, originally developed by the City of Nepean in the nineties, includes a softball diamond, amphitheatre, docks, adventure playground, canoe rental site and picnic areas as well as additional parking lots. The Manotick Village and Community Association (MVCA) has reviewed the plan along with the documentation relating to the agreement with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) who was responsible for setting aside funds each year for improvements to the Park. To date, the fund has accumulated over $600,000. The MVCA has expressed concerns to the City about the lack of progress on making improvements to this Park which is used by residents from Manotick, Barrhaven and Riverside South. We have also heard from local residents who have expressed concerns about bank erosion, parking and winter maintenance and who have expressed a wish to maintain this area as a passive park with more walking trails and viewpoints overlooking the river. We support this view and have indicated so in formal comments to the City. We have also asked

A Friendly Voice

Recently, Rural Ottawa South Support Services launched A Friendly Voice; a 24-hour friendly visiting phone line for seniors. A Friendly Voice is possible thanks to a three-year Provincial Impact Grant from Ontario Trillium Foundation. Social isolation and loneliness can lead to serious health concerns, especially as we get older. Sometimes a simple conversation with another person can make a world of difference. We invite you to share the phone number with others. The phone line is primarily answered by trained volunteers. If you are interested in becoming part of A Friendly Voice, contact ROSSS at: 613-6924697 or at info@ross.ca.

Playground Replacement Project

As local residents are aware, the play structure at Chris

The community is invited to provide comments and preference between the two options. Please visit my website for more information. If you wish to provide comments please send, no later than February 15, 2019 to the Park Planner associated with this file, Renee Proteau.

ber the panic about how every computer in the world was going to crash at midnight on January 1, 2000? The media had us all convinced that within hours of the turning over of the new millennium, we would be in the middle of a seemingly postapocalyptic collapse of FROM THE our society. And then there were the dot-coms. The term dot-com had the same sexy power that bitcoin did last year, or that anything involving investing by Jeff Morris in weed does now. The dot-coms dominated the marketing and the TV commercials. The commercials were humorous and edgy. The previous year, Monster.com had huge success with their ad. In 2000, every dot-com rolled the dice that a Super Bowl ad would be their ticket to success. The cost of an ad jumped to more than $2 million. Cyberian Outpost ran an ad where they shot gerbils out of a cannon. E-Trade had an ad with two guys and a dancing chimp. At the end of the commercial, the screen read, “Well, we just wasted $2 million.” The trade show ended early on the eve of the Super Bowl. The big party we had been invited to had been cancelled due to weather. However, there was a big party in our hotel’s big ballroom. We walked in, and guess who was pumping out the music? Yes, KC and the Sunshine Band. I weaseled my way to the front. KC saw me and nodded right in the middle of ‘That’s the Way (I Like It).’ The game was one for the ages. Kurt Warner and the Rams beat Steve McNair and the Titans 23-16. After the game, though, things went surreal. In Buckhead, an area of Atlanta north of the city, there were two men killed at a party. GROCER Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis had been arrested for a double murder. The incident grabbed every headline and cast a dark shadow over the game. The charges were eventually dropped against Lewis, but it remains a mystery exactly what his involvement and connection were in the incident. And now, the Super Bowl is back in Atlanta for the first time since that crazy week. Kurt Warner is a retired Hall of Famer. Steve McNair was shot and killed in Nashville, the city that loved him, in 2009. And Ray Lewis would be the Super Bowl MVP the following year and go on to a storied career as an NFL player. Most of the dot-coms that advertised in the 2000 “Dot-Com Bowl” went out of business within a couple years of airing their $2 million commercials. But most importantly, Harry Casey and his band are still going strong. That’s the way I like it!

Q: What is Osteoporosis?

Q: How can you help reduce decay & sensitivity?

A: Osteoporosis is described as a loss of bone strength causing brittle bones that are vulnerable to fractures. Our bones reach maximum density around age 30. As we continue to age from Pharmacist there, it is important to maintain bone health by choosing weight-bearing exercises, getting adequate calcium and vitamin D, avoiding smoking, excess alcohol or caffeine, and getting bone density screenings when suggested. If you are diagnosed with osteoporosis, your doctor may prescribe medicine to decrease the rate of bone deterioration. It is important to be compliant over many weeks, months and years to minimize fracture risk or further bone reduction.

A: Healthy food such as vegetables and nuts, are good for both your general and oral health. The nutrients that come from healthy foods help to fight cavities and gum disease.

Paul’s Pharmacy 990 River Road, Manotick, ON

Limit how much and how often you consume foods and beverages that contain sugar. Sugar is one of the main causes of dental decay. Limit your consumption of foods and beverages (such as citrus fruit and soda drinks) that are high in acid. The acid may play a part in causing dental erosion, which can lead to sensitivity and decay. For more information, please contact your dental office.

VETERINARY SERVICES Q: What are some food allergy myths? Shouldn’t food allergies cause intestinal signs? A:

In pets, it is usually the skin that suffers with a food allergy. Food allergy is one of the itchiest conditions in veterinary dermatology. Making matters worse is the fact that Dr. Andrew Sparling food allergies tend to be resistant to D.V.M. cortisone therapies which makes itch control especially difficult. If an animal does not get better fully with a food trial it means that food is not the issue? False - animals usually have a combination of food and inhalant allergies. A true hypoallergenic food trial will only help against the food allergies which would therefore only create a partial control for the patient depending on the inhalant allergens and the time of year. Ask your veterinary team about allergies to get all the important information for your pet.

Viola Desmond and the new Canadian $10 bill

Look at the new Canadian $10.00 bill in your wallet or purse - on one side you see a picture of the Museum of Human Rights :- on the other side you will see a portrait of Viola Desmond.. The bill is unique as the pictures are vertical: all other bills are horizontal. Viola Irene Desmond (July 6, 1914 – February 7, 1965) was a Canadian Black Nova Scotian businesswoman and a cosmetics pioneer for black women in Atlantic Canada. Following in the footsteps of her father, a Halifax barber, Ms. Desmond started out in business at a time when few beauty schools would accept black students. After training in Montreal, Atlantic City

THis week,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

and New York, she founded her own institution, Halifax’s Desmond School of Beauty Culture, selling her own line of hair and skin products across Nova Scotia. But on one business trip on Nov. 8, 1946, when her car broke down in New Glasgow, Ms. Desmond would become famous for another reason. Viola Desmond challenged racial segregation at a cinema

in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, in 1946. She refused to leave a whites-only area of the Roseland Theatre and was convicted of a minor tax violation for the one-cent tax difference between the seat she had paid for and the seat she used which was more expensive. Desmond’s case is one of the most publicized incidents of racial discrimination in Canadian history and helped start the modern civil rights movement in Canada. Each individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination..........Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, section 15.

Choose wisely when selecting Valentine gifts



· Avoid attention-getter antics. Sure it may seem like a good idea to send 20 helium balloons and a boatload of

flowers to a sweetheart’s office. But what if he or she really doesn’t like being in the limelight? Are you gifting this way for the attention you’ll receive rather than doing so to make your sweetheart happy? · Eschew overly per-

sonal gifts. If your relationship is in its infancy and you haven’t both mutually expressed interest to take it to the

next level, avoid gifts that suggest moving in together (appliances), personal fragrances, couples massages, or other intimate activities. Wait until the relationship has reached certain milestones before getting too person-

al with gifts. · Stop trying to be helpful. If your sweetheart has expressed a desire to make certain lifestyle changes, you may think a gym membership or a subscription to a new wardrobe mail service makes a great gift. But such gifts may send the wrong message, inadvertently, and even falsely, indicating that you don’t like your partner the way he or she is. · Pass up practical gifts. Valentine’s Day is a time to cater to fantasies and wishes more so than necessities. Even if your sweetheart needs that new electric shaver or a snow scraper for the car, go for something more special on Valentine’s Day.

As the clock ticks down to Valentine’s Day, the pressure is on to find the ideal gift. While some sweethearts may provided some clues to help with Valentine’s Day shopping, many gift-givers are on their own. The National Retail Federation predicts that, in 2019, shoppers may match Valentine’s Day spending from a year ago, when lovebirds spent a total $18.2 billion on gifts for their sweethearts. With so much money invested, shoppers no doubt want to find the best gifts possible. When shopping for Valentine’s Day, try to avoid these common mistakes and choose gifts that are creative and heartfelt. · Skip the gas station flowers, candy or last-minute gifts. Valentine’s Day is a time to show you care. If you’ve left gifting to the last minute, you may make the situation worse by giving something impersonal you picked up on an errand. If you forgot or ran out of time, simply admit you goofed or time got away from you. Then ask your sweetheart what he or she wants and go shopping together.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Riverside South petitions province to get new public high school With Barrhaven schools full, students being bused 20 kilometres each way to South Carleton

By Charlie Senack With the community of Riverside South expected to grow to a population of 20,000 people within the next ten years, elected officials are working hard to get a public high school built in the community. A petition has been started to show the provincial government that the community supports a new high school, and over 1,135 people signed it in two days. Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari will be bringing it to the Legislature in February, and will also be showing it to the Ministry of Education. “Education is a big deal for me in particular,” Ghamari said. “The reason why I am where I am in my life is because of education. I’m a product of the public board from elementary and high school. I was shocked when I found out that Riverside South doesn’t have a public high school and the population is going up to 20,000 (people) in the next decade.” Ghamari added that this was a topic she heard at the doors while campaigning, and said she approached the Ministry of Education after being elected to ask when there would be a call for capital funding. This was also a priority newly elected GloucesterSouth Nepean Councillor Carol Anne Meehan heard at the doors. She said students who live in Riverside South are currently being bussed 10-kilometres to Merivale

Dining Out g

n i r u Bachelor and bachelorette ideas! t a e F Affordable bachelor and bachelorette party ideas Weddings can be expensive. Various sources estimate the average cost of weddings is anywhere from $26,000 to $31,000. Couples and their parents may bear the brunt of wedding expenses, but those who have accepted a role in the wedding party also can expect their share of expenses. Taking into account gifts, wardrobes, makeup, bridal showers, and travel, including getting to and from the bachelor/bachelorette party, bridal party members are on the hook for a lot of money when their

friends or family members tie the knot. Many men and women like to travel for their bachelor/bachelorette parties, and cost-conscious bridal party members may be concerned about how expensive such parties can be. Pulling out all the stops can be exciting, but there’s no guarantee these types of parties will be more enjoyable than simpler soirées. Taking steps to control costs can help cost-conscious couples and their friends. The following are some affordable ideas that can be fun for all in-

volved. · Local Bar, pub or tavern crawl: Partygoers typically want to enjoy a night out on the town, and traveling from one establishment to another can be a fun way to do just that. Everyone invited can set themselves apart with a signature item (hat, T-shirt, or colored clothing), and make the rounds. · Attend a group event: Group events include sporting events, concerts, theater shows, or a night at a comedy club. Investigate discounted



tickets for large groups. · Belt out the tunes: Open mic nights at restaurants, bars and other establishments around town may make for a fun way for friends to share a few laughs together. Participants need not be professional singers to join in on the festivities. · Dinner party: Hire a caterer to visit your house and prepare a meal for guests. Serve a signature cocktail and let the conversation flow. Bachelor and bachelorette parties can be affordable without sacrificing fun.
