Ontario Agricultural Minister discusses challenges with local farm community It was a packed house at the Marlborough Pub and Eatery in North Gower Friday morning as the Carleton agricultural community came out in full force. Ernie Hardeman, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs was the guest of honour at the breakfast, hosted by Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari and her staff. It was another in a series of public meet and greet style events with Progressive Conservative Ministers Ghamari and her office have hosted in the riding in the past year. Hardeman worked the room, going from table to table chatting with some of Eastern Ontario’s most prominent leaders in the agricultural industry. Hardeman says his role is to talk to people to understand the problems and issues they are facing. “That’s what I do,” Minister Hardeman said. “The responsibility of the Minister of the Agriculture is to find

out what the problems are and deal with them.” For the past year, one of Hardeman’s major focuses has been on eliminating the amount of red tape that has tied up and bound the agricultural industry. “We want to find out what things are keeping them from being productive,” Hardeman said. “At this time of year, we want to make sure that all the farm programs are there, and to make sure the protection for them is there.” Hardeman is touring several parts of the province, and he said that while some of the challenges facing the agricultural industry across Ontario are similar, there are regional factors that come into play. Although the wet spring and unusually high levels of rain led to flooding in some areas near Ottawa, the farms in Carleton and eastern Ontario have not been hit as hard as some farms in other parts of the province, such as Bracebridge and Gravenhurst, who

dealt with severe flooding. “Flooding in rural areas is a completely different issue than flooding in the agricultural areas,” Hardeman said. “The challenge in the urban areas is the damage it does to the infrastructure and to houses in the community. In the rural areas, even though the flooding may not have pushed the barn over, if the field is to wet to get into in the planting season, then you don’t get to plant a crop. The length of the rain in this area was not as severe as it was in some of the other parts of the province.” Hardeman pointed out that in Lambton County and Essex County in Western Ontario, some fields are not dry enough to get a tractor on to plant a crop. There aren’t many crops that you can plant at the end of June and still get a decent harvest.” One of the issues facing farmers in Carleton was a conception under the previous government that there

was a city vs. country attitude at Queen’s Park. The Progressive Conservative Party campaigned on being a voice for rural Ontario – not just the agricultural industry, but all rural towns, villages, hamlets and farms. Harderman is pleased with the job done by the Ford Government. “Everyone in the agricultural community has been willing to talk to us,” he said. “There wasn’t a person in the room today who did not have a story to tell or a statement to make to help us in what we’re doing. We’ve been able to go back to Queen’s Park and implement a lot of those things already, and we will keep doing that.” Hardeman’s portfolio extends beyond agriculture and into all rural issues. He says that while some issues like education and healthcare are important to all Ontarians, it’s impossible to try and implement urban policy onto rural people.

“We try to develop a system that works well for rural and small town Ontario,” he

said. “The people respect that and support that type of ideology.”

Plastic bags now an option for bagging organics in green bins In recent weeks, there have been a number of items that have come to Council that have been the subject of much debate and discussion, such as the Chateau Laurier addition, Climate Emergency and single-use plastics. Over the course of the summer, I will dedicate this column to shedding light on these issues and Council’s decision, specifically my position. Before that, though, Council made another decision last year, which will now come into effect. That decision was to expand the green bin program to permit the use of plastic bags. Plastic bags will be allowed as a bagging option for organics in the green bin, such as food scraps, paper towel and tissue, and coffee grinds, beginning July 2nd. This is in addition to the current options of placing organics in paper bags in the green bin. Pet waste will also be accepted, including dog waste and kitty litter. In a recent survey conducted by Hill & Knowlton commissioned by the City of Ottawa, sixty per cent of people who seldom use or do not use the green bin said they would participate if plastic bags were allowed. There are a number of reasons residents have stated why they do not use it but


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

the primary one in our area has been about the messy nature of the bin. These changes will help address those concerns and make the green bin more convenient and easier to keep clean. In addition, using the green bin takes advantage of weekly pickup, while garbage going to landfill is collected bi-weekly. The organic waste facility has been retrofitted to rip open the plastic bags and separate the organic waste for composting. The plastic bags are then disposed in the landfill. Getting more homes participating in the green bin program will divert more organic materials from the landfill and significantly extend its life. If residents choose to use plastic bags to dispose of their organics, the City encourages them to reuse bags that may otherwise be thrown out, such as milk or bread bags. The plastic bag option is just one of many that are tailored to our residents’ comfort level and interest. The other options include:

Paper bags to keep their green bin clean – including leaf and yard waste bags Newspaper linings in the bin and kitchen containers Cereal boxes and milk cartons to contain food waste The City encourages residents who are using these options to continue their current practices. Residents can explore all options and learn what type of organic materials go into the green bin at ottawa.ca/ greenbin. For residents who have curbside collection but don’t have a green bin, go online to my.service.ottawa. ca or call 3-1-1 and one will be delivered to your front door.

Ottawa Catholic School Board approves balanced budget for 2019-2020

The Ottawa Catholic School Board has approved a balanced operating budget for the 20192020 school year totaling $558 million. This budget is compliant with all provincial government regulations and reflects input from our stakeholders including the Catholic School Council Parents’ Association (CSPA), the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC), Indigenous Education Advisory Committee, employee groups, and the Student Senate. This budget focuses

on programs and initiatives that enhance student & staff success while ensuring our schools are safe, caring, and welcoming places. “We are very proud to approve this budget; a budget that provides funds and support so our Catholic schools continue to be welcoming and safe places where students and staff can achieve and thrive.” Said Mark D. Mullan, Chairperson of the Board. Here are the highlights of additions to the 2019-2020 oper-

ating budget: ● Additional teachers due to enrolment growth net of secondary class size changes (21 FTE); ● Additional Educational Assistants to support current and anticipated student needs (32 FTE permanent staff and 21 FTE casual staff); ● Three additional Kindergarten Assessment Classes (9 FTE); ● Two additional System Language Classes (2 FTE); ● Additional Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) Supports

(2 FTE); ● Additional English as a Second Language Teachers (2 FTE); ● Four new Addictions Counsellors (4 FTE); ● Additional Guidance Counsellor (1 FTE); ● Five additional eLearning sections; ● Additional Chaplaincy Leader support (0.5 FTE); ● A new Equity and Diversity Advisor position (1 FTE); ● $100,000 Innovation Learning Fund;

● $50,000 to support employee wellness to “Be Well”; ● $59,000 increased support for extracurricular coverage; ● $30,000 increased support for health and safety inspections; ● $30,000 for the Student Senate to address school-based priorities; ● $52,500 to support music instruction training at the elementary level; and ● Spending related to a new addition to St. Joseph High School and the completion of

the addition for Holy Redeemer Elementary School. “We feel that this budget will help us invest in our schools and classrooms while ensuring we are able to support our Strategic Commitments: “Be Community, Be Well, Be Innovative” said Denise Andre, Director of Education. This operating budget represents a 1.9% increase over that of last year and provides for a 2019-2020 enrolment of 44,368 students, an increase of almost 1,000 students or 2.2%.

Ontario is committing $105 million over six years to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) for the construction of a new six-storey children’s treatment centre (approx. 234,440 sq. ft.) in Ottawa. CHEO’s children’s treatment centre is a leader in eastern Ontario in delivering services for children with special needs. The agency delivers autism services, physiotherapy,

occupational therapy, audiology, speech language pathology, social work, psychology, and physician services and therapeutic recreation. The centre provides these services in eight locations across the region, which makes it difficult for service recipients and providers to coordinate services and to give children and youth supports as they grow into adulthood. Multiple loca-

tions create wait times and program delivery is inefficient. A new, multi-purpose children’s treatment centre will improve the delivery of rehabilitation services and provide all-encompassing supports for families of children with special needs. CHEO will have the opportunity to reduce wait times for services, address capacity issues and optimize program efficiencies.

The new facility will make services easier to access and help build and improve the range of services for young people with special needs at every stage of a child’s development. Other benefits include increased front-line staffing by redirecting duplicated facility costs spent on multiple locations; more coordinated services through a “hub” of care; and clinical services

under one roof, so parents of kids with complex needs have access to coordinated, specialized care. CHEO’s children’s treatment centre is one of 20 children’s treatment centres in Ontario that receive funding from the Government of Ontario. Provincially funded services and supports for children and youth with special needs are delivered through children’s

treatment centres that provide a range of programs and services. Included among these programs are the Ontario Autism Program, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and speech and language pathology; respite services, coordinated service planning; and services for children and youth with multiple and/or complex special needs, including Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

Protecting our Waterways Want something to drink this summer? How about clean water? That includes our water. That is why I have worked to end the practice of pouring raw sewage into our lakes, oceans and rivers. Four years ago, I secured over $60 million in federal funding to help our city end the practice and protect the Ottawa River. One of the first decisions of the current federal government was to allow the city of Montreal to pour billions of litres of raw sewage into the St. Lawrence. That was the wrong decision. Let’s finally end that practice and keep our waters clean and pure for generations to come. Now let’s raise a glass to that! To share your thoughts and concerns, please contact me via my website: www.pierremp.ca or email at pierre.poilievre@parl.gc.ca. Hope to see you soon around the neighbourhood.

Imagination is ‘the stuff of which dreams are made’ THis week,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

Imagination is a strange and many-splendored thing. It is the “stuff of which dreams are made.” And where would we be without it? Thomas Edison, Wolfgang Mozart, Orville and Wilbur Wright, Shakespeare, Rembrandt, Picasso - the power of their imagination changed our world. How about Walt Disney now there is a great imagination for you. Think of the joy and fun it would have been to watch him work, maybe spend a day with him as ideas and concepts rolled out of his head. He once said that Disneyland began when he took his two daughters to

the park. He began to envision a kind of family park where children and parents could go to have fun together. I would call that “inventive imagination”. Have you ever stopped to consider that every time you listen to music, read a book, watch television, go to a movie or a play or view a painting, it is the product of someone’s imagination? Every invention and creation began with a “mental image or concept” of what was not actually present to the senses. If you are lucky with a creative imagination, use it. Celebrate it! Keep it alive and welloiled by constantly dreaming of inventions from which others may benefit. You don’t have to build a Disneyland, but you can produce creative accomplishments in your own realm.

The MessengerNEWS Ontario Liberal leadership candidate Coteau makes stop in south end By Charlie Senack

The race is on to find a new Ontario Liberal party leader, with one of the candidates stopping in Barrhaven on Wednesday, June 19. Michael Coteau stopped by the Walter Baker Centre to talk to a packed room of close to 30 local Liberals about his vision for Ontario — which included a better healthcare system, more job opportunities and nicer communities. “I want to build an Ontario where a child has the best opportunity to learn… to be the smartest, healthiest, and feel the safest,” he said. “Because of that we will see a stronger economy because we will have less wasted human potential, we will have better doctors (and) we will have more decency.” Coteau has been the MPP for the Toronto riding of Don Valley East since 2011, and served in four different cabinet posts — the latest being Minister of Community and Social Services from January to June 2018. That position

was most recently held by Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod before last week’s cabinet shuffle. The topic of Coteau’s former ministry came up multiple times during his campaign stop in Barrhaven, where he also talked about his disappointment with the Ford government. He made reference to cuts that were made this week, including to OSAP Services, the Champlain LHIN, and to the education system. “That’s just in the last two days, that’s not in the last two years or two months,” the Don Valley East MPP said. “We need to put a stop to this stuff. Doug Ford and the Conservatives have cut around 3-4 million dollars in social services and social services in the province, and pushed all that money towards corporations for tax breaks.” Coteau is one of only seven remaining Liberals MPP’s at Queens Park, and decided to run for the leadership race because he wants to bring

Beryl Gaffney Park meeting produces interesting results After months of consultation on potential enhancements to Beryl Gaffney Park, the City presented a report on the feedback it received and then proposed two recommendations to about 50 people at a public meeting on June 24. Councillors Carol Ann Meehan and Scott Moffatt confirmed that the City is moving away from full implementation of a Master Plan for the Park, which was created by the previous City of Nepean prior to amalgamation. That Plan was the original impetus for the consultation which began a year ago. Feedback from the community fell into the following theme areas: - keep the natural state of the park - no need for more sports facilities as other parks offer those - minimize the impact of erosion on the shoreline - implement some components of the Master Plan including group picnic areas, an amphitheatre, adventure play-

ground and access to the water - provide winter maintenance so it can be used year round - improve management of the forest The City has identified funding of $1 million for improvements to the park over the next 10 years, which includes over $660,000 accumulated to date through its agreement with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. Staff proposed two immediate actions to use these funds: - buy adjacent land to create a fenced off-leash dog park area in the south end of the park near Lockview Crescent - install a parking lot and traffic light off Prince of Wales across from Capital Memorial

Gardens. Any other planned enhancements, which would be considered on an individual basis and involve future public consultation, would require partnerships for funding. Comments at the meeting focused on the need to improve the maintenance of the existing pathways, replace the stone crossing of the creek with a bridge to improve connectivity to other paths, address the issue of erosion, create a community working group and build an amphitheatre. Participants also questioned how the City staff came up with the short term actions given the feedback they received and why the limited funding would be used for an off-leash dog area and a traffic light instead of park amenities. City staff responded that they had received concerns about off-leash dogs creating safety issues for walkers and cyclists. The City staff have committed to taking the feedback from the meeting and providing it back to interested parties. The

plan is to then work on a project at a time instead of a group of projects for the park. Each project would include a public consultation process. It was a disappointing result for the Manotick Village and Community Association. We had hoped to see the funds spent on enhancements to the park that would improve the experience of its users. We fully support maintaining the natural environment of the park and providing more benches and picnic tables as well as connecting the paths together to extend the network through to Chapman Mills and to David Bartlett Park. Unfortunately, the City seems more focused in taking funds targeted for park improvements and using them for parking and traffic measures and to purchase more land for the creation of an off-leash dog park. We hope that local residents will take this opportunity to provide feedback on the City’s plans. You can get additional information or submit comments

by emailing beryl.gaffney@ottawa.ca New South Police Facility presentation draws small crowd A handful of local residents showed up to see the design for the first phase of the new South Ottawa Police facility at a public meeting held on June 25. The building will be located in the property just to the south of Carleton Lodge on Prince of Wales Drive and will house a number of police units including canine unit, diving unit and tactical unit. The building will also include a collision reporting centre and a community boardroom that can be used for community meetings. The building will be an LEED design and incorporate a number of eco-friendly features, including 30 bike racks. Public art will also be included in the final design following a public competition. A new intersection will be created on Prince of Wales Drive to enable access to the facility from both north and

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Leukemia survivor shares her story at CIBC BBQ for cancer research

Jennifer Holmes was more than happy to man the grill at the CIBC Run for the Cure fundraising barbecue in Manotick last week. Holmes, the Community General Manager of Retail Banking, is winning her fight with leukemia. Helping out at a barbecue may seem like a small gesture, but it’s a big deal with a much deeper meaning for those who have battled cancer. In 2013, Holmes was diagnosed with a rare form of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. “I was 32 years old at the time and I had just given birth to my second child,” Holmes said. “I was

a mother of two and healthy with no sign or symptoms. A routine checkup found a lump in chest. After many biopsies and scans and countless blood tests I was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. “ Holmes was immediately taken to the Kingston General Hospital, where she underwent months of chemotherapy treatment. She was then informed that she would need to a bone marrow transplant as the best option to beat the cancer to survive the battle. “I was put on a donor’s recipient list in the blood donor bank, and we waited,” she said. “You see someone who does not

have brothers or sisters, I was completely relying on at the goodwill and humanitarian of another a complete stranger.” Three weeks later, she received a call informing her they had found a donor who was a 100 per cent match. One month later, she underwent more chemotherapy in order to prepare for the bone marrow transplant.

Cheer Team, Leadership have helped make St. Mark experience great

Name: Claire Carver Age: 17



Address: Manotick School: St. Mark High

by Phill Potter

Grade: 11 Parents: Wayne and Tara Brothers: William (15), grade 10 at St. Mark. Plays football and rugby. Hayden (19), business student at Wilfrid Laurier University. Pet Peeve: “People who don’t cover their mouths when they cough.” Favourite Subject: Biology What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? “I enjoy reading fiction books, such as classic dystopian, historic-fiction, fantasy, and sci fi novels. In addition, I’m fascinated by articles on scientific studies and topical issues. I also enjoy reading plays and poetry. Currently I’m reading King Lear by William Shakspeare.”

Favourite Authors: Margot Atwood, George Orwell, Oscar Wilde, and John Stienbeck. What are your Greatest Accomplishments? The hard work and dedication I put into my school work has allowed me to be on the Honour Roll since grade seven. I’ve also received various academic medals, and held the highest academic average in grade nine and ten. In addition, this hard work has lead me to becoming a Leader for our schools annual Leadership Camp at Camp Smitty in Eganville. I’ll be helping organize workshops and other amusing activities for a group of about 90 students this coming fall. Furthermore, I was recently elected as the Co-President of St. Mark,

alongside Tomas Pepe for next year. I’m excited to work with student council members to organize, lead, and manage activities for the student body for the 2019 and 2020 school year. Other than academics, my greatest accomplishment was becoming the Co-Head Editor of our school’s yearbook, working hard alongside a team of students to publish a wonderful book.”

Activities/Interests: “I’ve grown up dancing and always enjoyed trying to learn new styles of dance. I feel in love with dance because of my love for music. I always liked how every movement in dance accompanies the music perfectly. Since I loved dancing so much, I joined our school’s Cheer Team in grade seven, and was a part of the team until I decided I would be too busy to do it this year. On the Cheer Team I made some of my fondest high school memories at the competitions we participated in. Even though I’m not a part of the team anymore, I’m still a very active person who enjoys yoga and running.

Eagles to host 2020 Ontario Little League Championship

The kids of Summer are headed to the Eagles Nest as East Nepean Little League has been chosen to host the Major Ontario Little League Championship in July 2020. Teams representing all eight Ontario Little League districts will travel to the Eagles Nest at Ken Ross Park in Barrhaven, home of the East Nepean Eagles, to compete for the opportunity to represent Ontario at the Canadian Little League

Championship in Victoria, BC. East Nepean Little League President Bruce Campbell knows the significance of hosting this sought after event. “The Major provincial tournament is special,” Campbell said. “It’s special for the athletes, their families and for the city of Ottawa. This tournament is the chance for 11 and 12-year-old players to get one step closer to living out the dream of

representing Canada at the Little League World Series. Every at-bat, ground ball, pitch and fly ball are important steps towards winning. We are honoured to host the players who train for this and for their families who commit to supporting them along the way.” Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder is excited for the opportunities hosting the event will bring to Barrhaven. “Barrhaven is excited

indeed that East Nepean will host the 2020 Major Little League Ontario Championship,” Harder said. “Our community of over 90,000 residents and 500 businesses look forward to welcoming the players and their families. With new hotels under construction, three major recreation centres, close by Ottawa’s International Airport, with our very own VIA Rail station and on Hwy 416 there is nothing we aren’t close

to! Ottawa is a beautiful city and as we like to say it’s every Canadian’s second hometown. See you soon!” Winning this bid not only shines a spotlight on both the community and organization but also reflects the passion and commitment of the volunteers, a hallmark of East Nepean Little League’s success throughout the last 63 years in Ottawa. With just over a year until opening pitch, the

hopeful players, families, coaches and community are already working towards making the tournament a home run for all.

PHARMACY Q: Is Sunscreen necessary?




Q: When should I bring my toddler for their first dental visit?

Q: How can I prevent heat stroke?

A: Yes! We all know that sun exposure can damage skin. Sunscreen application should become a habit, especially in the summer months. Apply a generous Pharmacist layer to the face and exposed areas 15-30 minutes before going in the sun. This allows time for it to absorb into the skin and be effective. Reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours AND after water sports is required to maintain the SPF for the intended duration. Other sun safety tips include wearing hats, sunglasses, and long skirts or sleeves, staying hydrated and seeking the shade during peak hours between 10am and 2pm.

child’s 1st birthday. At this time the child can ride in the dental chair and the dentist will count their teeth and look for any signs of problems. To prepare for the first visit: - Try “playing dentist.” Count your child’s teeth. Make the exercise fun. - Take your child along with an older brother, sister or friend when they go for a routine exam or cleaning. It’s a good way to familiarize your little one with the dentist’s office. - Treat the appointment as routine. - Let your child bring his or her favourite stuffed toy along. The goal is to have the child visit the dentist before there is a problem with his or her teeth and to let the child become familiar with the dental environment. DR. CHEVREUL HARRIS DR.

cases of heat stroke. Here are several hints to help prevent this issue: Pick your times for exercise when it is cooler (early or late in the day). Dr. Andrew Sparling Take your dog for a swim or play in the D.V.M. sprinkler. Always have water available. Keep your pet out of the direct sun when able. Never leave your pet in a closed vehicle that is off. Cooling vests or towels can help if needed. Have a back up plan for both your pets and yourself if the power is lost and air conditioning were to not be available. Learn about the signs of heat stroke and if anything concerning starts, contact your veterinary team for help immediately.

Trivia Newton-John

survivor continues from page 10 “On May 7th 2014, I received the gift of life, the gift of a new beginning a second chance; a chance to be a mother to my children; a chance to make a difference for others; a chance to live my life to the fullest every day and to truly appreciate everything life has to offer,” she said. “There are no words to describe, no words sufficient to express my gratefulness or my gratitude. How do you truly say thank you to someone who saved my life, and who gave my children their mommy. The one thing I learned on this journey is that there are amazing people out there with big hearts, full of kindness and thoughtfulness. I could not have gotten through it without my spouse, mom and dad, family and friends and the generosity of the community. The doctors in Kingston and Ottawa and nurses were outstanding and the care like none other. But to my donor, who I have yet to meet; thank you for giving me a second chance; it is the most selfless act you could have ever done; I hope one day we can find each other; forever grateful for a second chance a life. Miracles do come true!” Holmes said she volunteers at events to try to give back, and to let people know that

every little bit of support helps. “Every time I put on my pink t-shirt; I wear it proudly to support CIBC ‘Run For The Cure’; The Canadian Cancer Society,” she said. “I am proud to be able to help others get through the tough times. We all have been affected by cancer whether it is personally, a friend, family member or someone in the community. So if I can give someone hope, give them a reason to believe; to fight to push through the hard times; then everything I had to endure and go through was worth it. Because without blood donors, marrow donors, donations and fundraisers for research it would never have been possible to beat cancer. Every day we get a step closer and I thank you for all of those who can to donate to the cause to the find a cure for cancer.” CIBC Manotick and CIBC’s all across Canada are joining together to help fight the fight and to help bring us closer to the cure. If you would like to make a donation you can visit any CIBC or you can also go onto the Run For The Cure Website and register and donate there. Every little bit makes a difference. The CIBC Run For The Cure is Sunday October 6th.

What about village life?

The Editor, Sadly, Richmond and Manotick are slated to account for half of rural housing growth. This needn’t be a bad thing. But it is -- the good mayor and his bobble headed councillors are gung ho on approving all and sundry de-

velopers plans, no matter how ill conceived. Unfortunately, they don’t pay as much attention to infrastructure, people’s lives and the destruction of village life. Sad, but there’s no money in worrying about that kind of stuff. Judy Hill, Manotick AT THE MANOTICK DENTAL CLINIC

American girls football pioneer Sam Gordon poses with St. Mark High School students who presented her with a football during a visit to the Manotick school on Thursday, June 13. The pint-sized Gordon, from Salt Lake City, is in a court battle to have high schools in her area to permit girls to play football. She is also an elite soccer player. When Gordon was nine, she scored 25 touchdowns in one season playing against males, some of whom were twice her weight. A highlight video from that season had more than five million views within a week. Gordon has been on a Wheaties box, and she appeared in the NFL 100th anniversary commercial during Super Bowl LII in February. She is also featured in the Nike “Dream Crazier” ad celebrating women in sport. In the spring, St. Mark became the first high school in Canada to host a girls varsity football game. The school is trying to grow girls football to the point where there can be a National Capital girls high school football league.
