Lépine Apartments brings world class construction and design

Every week, residents in Barrhaven can notice the progress on the new Howard Grant Terrace by Lépine Apartments in Barrhaven’s RioCan Marketplace off Longfields Drive. Before long, what is now a tower of construction will become Barrhaven’s most elegant luxury apartment building. With high ceilings, comparatively larger units, panoramic windows, richly stained hardwood floors, granite countertops, in-suite laundry and sleek appliances, Lépine rivals conventional apartment and condo living by offering a carefree resort lifestyle. Architecture, character and generational quality have been signatures of the Lépine family business legacy for more than 60 years. Francis Lépine, who is the visionary and developer behind Howard Grant Terrace and other Lépine apartments,

says that Lépine’s projects are built to last to be enjoyed by generations. “Our buildings are made to last for centuries,” he said. Howard Grant Terrace is not the only luxury apartment building that Lépine is working on. They are also building the Saint Émilion in Kanata Lakes, which will feature 154 units that range in size from 835 to 2,187 square feet. The building features a unique terraced architecture and has a fitness centre, party room, and many amenities. All of these things give the residents a sense of worryfree living, which is what Lépine wants with their luxury apartment buildings. And their buildings come without the hassles and responsibilities of home ownership. Lépine’s Kanata Lakes building offers the same quality that the company’s developments are known for. The thick concrete, as well as the

mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are built to last through the years, while maximizing the efficiency and comfort of the building. The interiors feature spacious living areas, full-sized and functional kitchens that are comparable in size to kitchens in most single-family homes, and include solid granite countertops with generous counter space, numerous cabinets, including extra-high upper cabinets, and a lot of shelving. The living areas are spacious with high-end detail, and the dining room features a large area that can equip a decent-sized dining room table. Master bedrooms are designed to accommodate king-sized beds, while the secondary bedrooms are designed for queen-sized beds. The terraces are complete with furniture and barbecues, ideal for

While Lépine is building the Howard Grant Terrace in Barrhaven, their Saint Émilion in Kanata Lakes will be ready for move-in this October.

Lépine Luxury Apartment buildings are known for their spacious, state-of-the-art fitness centres.

saltwater pools are ideal for adults to relax in, swim in, or teach their children or grandchildren to swim in. Residents can also relax in the sauna, and enjoy the change room with lockers. Part of the worry-free lifestyle of Lépine is not having to deal with a multitude of household bills. Rent at Lépine includes heating, air conditioning and hot water. Also included in rent are six appliances and insuite laundry, as well as locker and bicycle storage. For more information on Lépine Luxury Apartments, visit www. lepineapartments.com.

Responsible Fiscal Management Last week, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer announced that a Conservative government will balance the federal budget in five years. This is a measured and responsible approach to restoring fiscal responsibility, while maintaining the services we expect as Canadians. In 2015, Justin Trudeau famously claimed that his government would balance the budget in 2019. Instead, his government will run a deficit of $19.8 billion in 2019-2020.The Liberal government is committed to running permanent deficits. The Department of Finance now projects that the budget will not balance until 2040-2041 at current spending levels. Permanent and growing deficits will lead to a Liberal tax hikes. The alternative is a responsible phase out of the Trudeau deficit in the medium term that protects core services for Canadians. Upcoming Events:

With summer just around the corner, there are plenty of events to watch out for. Osgoode Youth Association is organizing a Summer Block Party on June 8 from 11am-2pm and in Stittsville, the Stittsville Village Association is organizing Arts in the Park for June 9 from 11am-4pm. Richmond is having their Family Fun Day on June 15th from 10am-3pm on the Richmond Fairgrounds. The weather is finally warming up so get out with family and friends and enjoy! See you there. Many Canadians and Permanent Residents with family abroad will be inviting loved ones to visit them in Canada during the summer months. My office is available to help provide advice that may maximize the chances of your family member making a successful visa application. Please call 613692-3331 for more information.

Lieutenant Governor of Ontario visits St. Mark, Watson’s Mill By Charlie Senack

As the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario tours parts of Eastern Ontario, she made stops in Manotick and Barrhaven to learn about work the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is doing, as well as taking a tour of Watson’s Mill. On Friday May 31, the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell started her day off at the RVCA Headquarters located at 3889 Rideau Valley Drive, where she was given an introduction about the organization, and had the chance to speak with local landowners, staff and volunteers to learn about our the RVCA’s programs. “She was able to look at bugs under a microscope and learn how we monitor watershed health (and) some of the trends we are seeing,” said Sommer Casgrain-Robertson, chair of the RVCA. “She spoke to some landowners who have participated in our stewardship programs, including farmers who have taken part in our tree planting programs and our clean water grant programs,” she added. Another topic discussed

was the record floods Ottawa has been tackling for the last month. Dowdeswell had the chance to tour flood affected areas in Clarence Rockland and Constance Bay the day before, and was able to learn about why the flooding occurred and how to prevent it. “I’m so conscious of the flooding issues and how quickly some of this happens,” she said. “I get the feeling that people feel this year the water has been really slow to recede.” The Rideau Conservation Authority has been closely monitoring the water levels, and terminated flood warnings for areas along the Ottawa River on the same day as Dowdeswell’s visit. The Lieutenant Governor of Ontario then made her way over to the Chapman Mills Conservation Area in Barrhaven — one of 11 conservation areas in Eastern Ontario which the RCVA operates and manages. There she was able to visit the newly built platform along the Rideau River, and was able to learn about the new accessible dock which is slated to be built soon to make it easier for people to

fish and launch canoes and kayaks. Dowdeswell also had the chance to see a stewardship project the Conservation Authority has started, in an effort to help prevent erosion along the shorelines. “On the Rideau system there is a lot of boat traffic and erosion is always an issue for any water front property,” said CasgrainRobertson. “We are always prompting people to keep a nice healthy and vegetated buffer along their shoreline because those deep root systems do wonders for holding back soil.” After visiting some of the area’s urban green spaces, Dowdeswell then went to go and speak to students at St. Mark High School in Manotick before visiting Watson’s Mill.

Kawhi Leonard probably doesn’t care. He’s a humble, heart-and-soul guy who is tough as nails both mentally and physically. He has Doug Gilmoured his way into Canada’s hearts and made an entire country fall in love with basketball. Who cares about the Stanley Cup? After Leonard’s last-second miracle shot in Game 7 against Philadelphia, every kid in Canada with a FROM THE basketball stopped playing Fort Nite and was out there the next day in a driveway with a hoop trying to recreate that moment. But I didn’t see any kids on those driveways preby Jeff Morris tending to be Drake. They weren’t trash talking and waving their arms around and yelling like Seinfeld’s George Costanza when his co-workers started calling him ‘Coco the Monkey.’ As a basketball fan, Drake has ruined this exciting moment for me. I want to watch Leonard and admire him and marinate in the moment. It’s hard to get into it when Drake is wandering up and down the sidelines, giving shoulder massages to the coach, and being a camera-hogging, attention-seeking Spike Lee starter kit. If anyone acted like that beside the stage, or even on the stage, during one of his concerts, I am pretty sure he would point to his thugs, give a throat-slashing gesture, and then watch the clown get his face punched in. The final straw for me came after the Raptors beat Milwaukee in Game 6 to advance to the finals. At the end of the game, the players were shaking hands and showing sportsmanship and class. Drake was seen on TV yelling and pointing and screaming at the Bucks players. Had Drake ever played a competitive sport in his life, GROCER he would have known how classless his actions were. It’s over. Be humble in your victory. That’s what we would have seen Kawhi Leonard doing if the cameras weren’t on Drake. But Drake wouldn’t have known because he has never been an athlete. He’s a singer, kind of. Okay, he owns an autotune box and a Casio. And he raps. He must be good because he uses the ‘F’ word and the ‘N’ word all the time. The one thing that we, as Canadians, do better and more frequently than anyone in the world is apologize. Maybe we need to get together en masse and apologize to all of our American friends on social media every time Drake does something idiotic during the NBA finals. Or an even more Canadian thing to do would be to turn Drake’s sideline TV appearances into a drinking game. Either way, I’m still not a fan. And while I’m trying to watch the Raptors, I wish Drake was still at the bottom, not here.

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT Speed display boards used to slow down traffic in Rideau-Goulbourn

We hear many concerns about speeding in our communities. Most recently, a resident called our office and asked that we remind neighbours to share Second Line Road. In general, we ask residents to be cognizant of pedestrians and cyclists using our roads and to be mindful of the speed limit. Of course, this also applies to every other road as well. Although we wish we had the means to eliminate speeding permanently, we have traffic calming measures that can help address this concern. First and foremost, we always like to stress the importance of reporting speeding and dangerous driving. You can report this to Ottawa Police Service at 613-236-1222 or online at www.ottawapolice.ca/onlinereporting. Reporting traffic infractions will assist police in deploying staff for enforcement in the area. Another traffic calming measure we routinely utilize is deploying speed display boards, which raise awareness of excessive speeding. Boards are placed on a rotational basis to capture speed data, which is then used, by the City and Ottawa Police to address speeding concerns in our neighbourhoods. If you notice excessive speeding and believe a speed display board would be beneficial, please contact my office. Please note: the timeline for deployment does vary based on availability. My office also has a limited amount of “Slow Down For Us” lawn signs. If you would like one for your lawn, please contact my office and we will do our best


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

to get you one. We understand how dangerous speeding is and ask all residents to be cognizant and careful while driving in Rideau-Goulbourn and beyond.

Harold Brown Park

In recognition of his historical significance to the community of Richmond, the City of Ottawa has received a proposal to name the future park at Shea Road and Kirkham Crescent, the Harold Brown Park. Harold Brown played an integral role in the history of the landmark Richmond Bakery, which operated in the community for more than seven decades. In 1930, Harold Brown went into business as a baker, initially operating on McBean Street, in Richmond. The bakery had no electricity and produced 325 loaves per batch in a brick, wood-fired oven. Bread was delivered to the surrounding countryside using horses loaned by local farmers, across an area 32 kilometres from the bakery, in all directions. Mr. Brown joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1939, and served as a sergeant until his discharge in 1945. He returned to Richmond to open a new bakeshop, which subsequently relocated to Perth Street, where it would remain until it closed in August 2014.

Rural Economic Development Strategy

I would like to extend an invitation to join the City of Ottawa on Wednesday, June 12th or Thursday, June 13th for a focus group designed to convene key rural stakeholders to help guide the City of Ottawa’s Rural Economic Development Strategy (REDS). The focus groups are part of a comprehensive stakeholder engagement plan that is intended to support the development of a Rural Economic Development Strategy and Action Plan. The Strategy and Plan will outline the City’s strategy and approach to stimulate economic growth in rural Ottawa. The geographic focus of the strategy is targeted primarily at Wards 5 (West Carleton-March), 19 (Cumberland), 20 (Osgoode), and 21 (Rideau-Goulbourn). The focus group sessions will be action oriented with an emphasis on priority setting. The goals of the sessions will be to: • Understand the perspectives, challenges, and expectations of rural businesses • Provide clarity to issues

identified in the business and community surveys • Explore solutions or emerging opportunities to stimulate rural economic growth As a key rural stakeholder, the City’s REDS will greatly benefit from your knowledge, experience, and views. Please visit engage. ottawa.ca/REDS for registration details and other ways to engage. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jephtée Elysée at 613-580-2424 x 21656 or jephtee.elysee@ottawa.ca.

Graham Forrester of the Manotick Volunteer Fire Department once again entertained the Dickinson Days Parade crowd.

Rogers is proposing an antenna system at 6340 Rideau Valley Drive, Kars, which consists of the following: a 70m self-support communication tower and ancillary equipment located on the southern edge of the property, approximately 165m from Rideau Valley Drive. Once completed the antenna system will measure 70 metres in height. Rogers invites you, within 30 calendar days of the date of this notice, to provide by mail or email your comments, and / or request to be informed of the City’s position on the proposed antenna system. Rogers will respond to all reasonable and relevant concerns, and the City will be taking into account comments from the public and Rogers’ response to each when providing its position to the proponent and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada is responsible for the approval of this antenna system, and requires that we review this proposal with the local municipality. After reviewing this proposal, the City of Ottawa will provide its position to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada and to Rogers.

Dickinson House was a big part of Friday’s parade and a focal point of Dickinson Days in Manotick throughout the weekend.

Summer Camps

Summer camp options abound Summer camp is a beloved tradition in many families. Many parents of young children fondly recall spending their summers at summer camp, where they made lifelong friends and learned the finer points of roasting marshmallows and competing in threelegged sack races. Parents looking for the right summer camp for their kids will soon discover there are various types of summer camps, each offering youngsters something different. The following are some of the summer camp options parents can expect to encounter

as they search for the right campe for their kids. Day camp Day camps are not overnight camps, which means kids will return home each night rather than sleep over at camp. Day camps typically offer many of the activities people have come to associate with camps, including crafts, sports and even daytrips to experience local culture or attractions. Many day camps are co-ed, and counselors typically live within the community. Faith-based camp Faith-based camps offer many of the same

activities as more traditional summer camps, but do so while simultaneously offering campers the opportunity to celebrate and further explore their religious beliefs. Some faithbased camps may focus heavily on religion, incorporating faith into daily camp activities, while others may be more subtle with regard to integrating religious beliefs and lessons into camp activities. Sports camps Some summer camps focus on a particular sport, catering to young athletes who want to further develop their athletic talents. Sports

camps may or may not feature guest lectures and lessons from notable local athletes and coaches, with some even providing instruction from current and/or former professional athletes. Some sports camps are overnight, while others are day camps. Family camps Family camps are opportunities for the whole family to enjoy the summer camp experience. Family camps typically tailor their activities around tasks families can complete together, with counselors providing assistance when it’s needed. Family camps may be

faith-based or secular, and families typically stay overnight, sleeping in facilities on the campsite or in lodging away from home. Special needs camps Parents of children with special needs can still send their kids to summer camp, as there are many camps that cater to such youngsters. Special needs camps may cater to campers

who are blind, deaf, learning disabled, or mentally or physically disabled. Staff at special needs camps typically undergoes extensive training, which helps to calm some of the fears parents may have about leaving their special needs children at camp. Facilities at special needs camps are often built to accommodate the specific needs of campers.

Summer Camps

Begin planning kids’ summer recreation now Many families spend spring figuring out how to chase away cabin fever and endure cool temperatures until summer mercifully return. Parents thinking ahead to swimming pools and days lounging on the beach can put their daydreams to practical use by planning ahead for their youngsters’ summer vacations. Youth recreational programs and summer camps can bridge the gap in care between the end of school and the day when classes resume. Due in part to high demand, parents who want

to place their kids in summer rec programs or summer camps should being vetting such programs and camps well in advance of summer. The following are a handful of tips for moms and dads who want their kids to have fun and fulfilling summers. · Ask for recommendations. Speak with fellow parents and trusted friends about where they send their children. Personal recommendations can be very helpful, providing firsthand insight into a particular camp or program. Schedule appointments to visit

camps that fall within your budget. Take your son or daughter along so he or she can get a sense of what camp will be like. · Explore all options. Camps come in more flavors than ever before. Certain camps may be faith-based ministries while others may focus on particular sports. Band camps and art camps may appeal to creative kids. Also, there are plenty of generalinterest camps that offer various activities without narrowing in on any particular one. Parents may need to choose between a sleepaway camp or day

camps, depending on which camp experience they want for their children. · Inquire about camp schedules. While many camps are flexible, day camps do not have the same level of flexibility as after-school programs. Arrangements will need to be made if care is required after regular camp hours. Speak with camp staff to see which types of after-hours programs, if any, are available. · Determine your camp budget. As varied as program offerings may be, camps also can

vary greatly with regard to cost. Governmentrun camps may be less expensive than those offered by private companies. Day camps typically cost less than those that provide room and board. Find out if a particular organization subsidizes a portion of camp costs. Scouting programs often have a dedicated camp and may offer affordable options for scouts. Martial arts schools and dance centers frequently offer camp schedules. If camp seems out of reach, look into local summer recreation programs at parks or schools.

Such programs may not be as extensive as those offered by camps, but they can quell kids’ boredom and keep children occupied during the day. In addition to camp, remember to plan for some free days so children can just enjoy some downtime. Such days can break up the monotony of a routine and provide kids and families time to relax together. Summer recreation may be far off, but it is never too early to start making summer plans, including finding camps and other activities for kids.

Dogs rescued from Osgoode fire after neighbour calls 9-1-1 Ottawa Fire received a 9-1-1 call from a neighbour at 6:12 p.m. Friday (May 31) reporting smoke visible from a home at 2095 Blackcreek Road in Osgoode. Additional information provided was that the family was not home. However, there were two dogs reportedly inside the structure. The first OFS crew on scene did confirm that smoke was visible from all windows on one side of the home.

Firefighters quickly entered the building to search for the pets. Two unresponsive dogs were found inside and were quickly rescued. Resuscitative measures were used to revive the dogs with Canine Resuscitator Masks aboard the Ottawa Fire vehicles. Both Brandy and Q regained consciousness after the intervention by firefighters. While resuscitation was underway, other crews engaged in a defensive attack on the fire that originated in

the kitchen. The fire extended into the attic of the home and firefighters completed extensive overhaul operations to limit additional fire spread. The fire was deemed under control just after 7 p.m. The damages were estimated by an investigator at $125,000 and a family of five plus two pets are displaced. The injuries sustained were to the family’s pets and not to the occupants.

Make his first Father’s Day special Dads are often the first heros in their young children’s lives. Dads chase away ghosts in the closet, let their daughters dance on their toes and teach their sons how to win the heart of their first crush. The first Father’s Day a new dad spends with his growing family can be quite memorable, as celebrating one’s fatherhood for the first time is a unique and special time. Spouses and other family members can go the extra mile to make this year that much more special for first-time fathers. · Let Dad sleep in. Chances are Dad is enamored with his little bundle of joy, but it’s

well-known that being a new father often means sacrificing sleep time especially for the first several months to a year of that child’s life. Enlist the help of a family member who can be on baby watch while Dad gets to sleep in on the weekend of his big day. With some extra sleep, Dad can enjoy Father’s Day that much more. · Create a first-year memory book. Take the time to put together a scrapbook of the photos and moments baby and Dad have gotten to spend together. So much focus is often placed on a new baby and his or her mother that Dad may be left playing second fiddle. Make it clear that

fathers are key to their children’s development and happiness, too. · Make a baby keepsake. Use washable ink so that baby can sign a Father’s Day card with a hand or footprint. The tradition can be repeated year after year until the child is old enough to write. · Go overboard on gifts. The idea isn’t to buy Dad’s love, but Dad’s first Father’s Day is a truly unique time. On behalf of his firstborn, purchase a few different gifts - those items that he has been interested in buying but has resisted in favor of saving money for new onesies and burp cloths. Or invest in one special event gift, such as tickets to a game to see his

favorite team or a concert to catch a favorite band. · Boost his ego. Get matching T-shirts for baby and Dad with cute

memes and sayings, such as “Couch Potato” and “Tater Tot.” Father’s Day comes once a year. However, a father’s

very first Father’s Day occurs just once. Use the opportunity to pamper Dad so he can savor this truly special experience.

75th Anniversary of D Day is 20th Anniversary of Pipe Mjr Sam Scott Day THIS WEEK,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

Sam Scott was born in Glasgow Scotland and moved to Canada with his parents when he was about three years old. He married Aileen Waddell of Carsonby on June 18, 1930. The Scotts lived on Mill Street in Manotick for many years. At the outbreak of World War 11 Pipe Major Sam Scott was presented with the bagpipes by the 43rd Regimental Association in Ottawa. Following training at Camp Borden and Landsdowne Park in Ottawa he was posted to Iceland for one year, then to England, France, Bel-

gium, Holland and Germany during the war as Pipe Major of the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa. He piped the Canadian troops onto the beaches of Normandy, France on D Day, June 6, 1944. He marched with soldiers and played laments at many cemeteries in Europe with the same pipes. Sam Scott played the pipes at innumerable ceremonial and social events in Canada as well. He taught bagpipe to students in Manotick both before the war and after, many went on to win

competitions throughout the world. It was always a special event in Manotick, on the morning of the Highland Games in Maxville, when Sam and his students would practice. When Manotick celebrated its centennial in 1959 the first event of the 4 day “Program of Events” read - “Friday July 31st, 1959 - 1 pm Public School Parade of Floats Led by Pipe-Major Sam Scott and Pupils”. Mrs. Scott donated the pipes to the Museum of Civilization after her husband’s death in 1972. The former Township of Rideau proclaimed June 6, 1999 “Pipe Major Sam Scott Day” as a tribute to one of Canada’s most famous pipers. A musical memorial took

place at Lenwood Galleries, Manotick when different pipers from the area played outside while daughters Margaret Scott

ago. Those of us who attended the occasion remember a wonderful celebration. 2019 is the 75th An-

and Helen Hartin greeted friends to view the same pipes that had piped Canadian soldiers onto the shores of Normandy, France those many years

niversary of D Day June 6, 1944 and the 20th Anniversary of “Pipe Major Sam Scott Day”. We Will Remember Them!

The MessengerFOCUS ON YOUTH Key Club, volunteering connects Honour Roll student to community

Name: Tomas Pepe Age: 16 Address: Manotick School: St. Mark High Grade: 11 Parents: Marina and John Pepe Brother: Michael (19), University of Waterloo for Nano Technology Engineering. Sister: Isabella (22), attended Western University for Business. Pet: Lucas, dog (cockapoo), age 7

Volunteer and Part-time Work: “The importance of giving back to my community has been a lesson that my family and school has emphasized since the beginning of my education. Over the past several years, I’ve been able to help and contribute to Manotick village and the greater Ottawa area through various volunteering opportunities, events, and groups. Foremost among these, is my involvement with the St. Mark’s Key Club, of which I am the secretary. This club works closely with Kiwanis Manotick to provide service to our local community. Through Key club, I’ve participated and volunteered in numerous events, such as the Manotick Christmas Parade and


YOUTH by Phill Potter Dickinson Days. Furthermore, I’ve participated and helped organize many fundraisers, including Candygrams and Bake Sales for donation to various charities, such as Turn on the Tap. St. Mark Key Club has taught me and many others, the importance of service and leadership, and remains very active in our school and local community. On 0ct. 26th, we raised 450. to make care packages for the homeless. In addition to Key Club, I’ve also volunteered with In Stride Event Management at their amazing event, The Manotick Miler. I’m also a tutor for younger students. Finally, I have always been highly involved in St Mark’s famous Can Food Drive and other like events, such as the Christmas Craft Fair and our Service Days.” Favourite Subjects: “My favourite subjects are probably chemistry and biology.

I have always been extremely interested in science, and have excelled in these courses. I love learning how things work, particularly life, forces, and the environment. I also really enjoy French and History, and believe it’s very important to be bilingual.” What do you enjoy reading/ listening to for pleasure? “Reading is one of my favourite pastimes and stress relievers. My families’ and my own favourite series has always been the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I enjoy all books that fit in the Tolkien genre. Some of my other favourite novels include All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, and the Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I love alternative and classic rock. Some of my favourite bands include the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac and Mother Mother. My sister is a major influence, and has helped develop my taste in books and music.” What is Your Greatest Accomplishment? “Throughout my life, I’ve achieved several things that I’m extremely proud of. Foremost

among them are my academic accomplishments. I’ve been on Honour Roll throughout all of secondary school, and have maintained an above 90 average throughout all of high school. I’ve also taken home awards for Highest Average in my grade in subjects such as Science, English, Religion, Careers and Tech Design. My involvement and leadership roles within the school are also things I’m very proud of. Activities/Interests: “Inside and outside of school, I have many interests and activities. As mentioned before, I love getting involved within St. Mark. I’m part of many extracurriculars, such as Key Club, Den Reps (helping Student Council organize school events), and OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving). In addition, I’m a member of IMUM, which is a group of students dedicated to breaking the stigma surrounding mental health. I am also a Peer Helper, which means I have an assigned grade 8 class where I talk to, play with, and help students feel comfortable and welcomed in the St. Mark community. Perhaps my favourite activity

within the school, is St Mark’s Leadership Camp, where students are selected by teachers for a three-day leadership training program at Camp Smitty. I have gone the past three years and they’ve been some of the most amazing and enriching experiences of my life. There have been so many wonderful ways for me to get involved at St. Mark, and so many amazing staff members who have helped me along the way. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, and watching my favourite team – the Montreal Canadians. At one time I played soccer and hockey, but dropped them to pursue other interests. I also adore the outdoors and love hiking, camping, and gardening from march to the first snow.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “There is a certain satisfaction you get from being of service to your school and local community. Not only are all the things I do incredibly fun and with great people, but they’re also greatly rewarding for myself and others. It was really my brother who pushed me to get in-

volved within St. Mark, and I am so glad he did.” Career Goals: “After high school, I hope to attend university in Canada for something to do with science. I am not sure exactly what, but no matter where I end up, I need to do something I’m passionate about and that fulfills me.”

The MessengerNEWS Grade 12 student Kevin Hua to run for NDP in federal election

Kevin Hua, an 18-yearold Grade 12 student at Bell High School, has won the Carleton NDP nomination for this year’s federal election. The Stittsville resident will run alongside Conservative incumbent Pierre Poilievre and Liberal candidate, Chris Rodgers. Hua won the nomination by acclamation at the Federal NDP Riding Association of Carleton Nomination Meeting Thurs., May 30th, at the Manotick Public Library.

The guest speaker for the meeting was Pierre-Luc Dusseault, who was the youngest elected MP in Canada eight years ago at the age of 19. Dusseault, from the federal Riding of Sherbrooke, QC believes that being an MP is a role that one must learn on the job, be it at 60, 40 or 20 years of age. He believes Hua brings a special skill set that the NDP caucus can use in Ottawa and he believes that Hua is more than qualified for the job.

Hua has been an active Executive member with the Carleton Riding Association for the last two years and is stepping up to the plate to run as federal candidate. He has work and volunteer experience with the Heritage Language Program (OCSB), and he has been a volunteer with the Autism Guardian Program (GASCN). He is an Honour Role student with an average over 90 per cent, and has been a member of the Model United Nations and Key Club at Bell

High School for the past four years. Hua also has his black belt in Taekwondo, and is fluent in French, English and is intermediate level in Mandarin.

Bell High School Grade 12 Honour Roll student Kevin Hua won the Carleton NDP nomination for the upcoming federal election at the Carleton NDP Riding Association meeting in Manotick last week.

PHARMACY Q: How is best to deal with insect bites this summer? A: Prevention of insect bites is

the best strategy such as wearing long, protective clothing and using a repellant. Products containing DEET are among the most effective at warding off mosquitoes, flies and Pharmacist ticks using 10% strength for kids 13+ and 30% for adults. Icaridin 20% is another option or the natural option of lemon eucalyptus oil. Read and follow labeled instructions and wash off after returning indoors. For treatment of bites, cool compresses are an easy, natural way to calm itching. Depending on severity of symptoms, your pharmacist can guide you to other options such as anesthetics, antihistamines, or topical corticosteroids. Avoid scratching bites, yet, also watch for swelling, warmth, pus, pain and increasing redness near bites as signs of infection requiring further treatment.

Paul’s Pharmacy 990 River Road, Manotick, ON



Q: l my child need early orthodontic treatment? A: Your child may need to be assessed around the age of 7 if you see signs of malocclusion (bad bite). Common signs of needing orthodontic treatment are: early or late loss of primary teeth, mouth-breathing, speech difficulty, protruding teeth, and teeth that do not meet in a normal way. Starting orthodontic treatments early may prevent the need for more extensive treatment later. Early treatment is usually shorter in time, because the teeth are still developing, and the jaw is growing, and this makes treatment easier to address. If you are concerned about the development of your child’s teeth, please let your dentist know.

Q: What should I do when there is a pet food recall? A: When you hear about a recall, go to the pet food company’s website and make sure your pet’s diet is not one of the recalled brands. Safety and transparency from a food company is Dr. Andrew Sparling paramount, and only a canine or D.V.M. feline nutritionist or a member of your veterinary care team can help you understand what is important for your pet’s nutritional needs. Don’t be misled by savvy marketing! Discuss your pet’s nutritional needs with your veterinary team, then make sure the company you choose has a solid safety record and is transparent about all their nutritional information.

St. Mark up for five Cappie Awards, Gala at NAC Sunday tor. Parfumerie is a sweet, sentimental perennial comedy favourite set in preWWII Budapest. A young a clerk at Hammerschmidt’s parfumerie, finds himself struggling with the chaos created by misunderstandings among the staff, miscommunication with his employer, and misinformation about a co-worker. As Christmas approaches, George and colleagues, the pragmatic Mr. Sipos, the bellicose Ms. Balash, and the overworked delivery boy Arpad, struggle to ensure that Hammerschmidt’s remains afloat amid personal and professional challenges, which are exacerbated by the

By Mike Carroccetto

This Sunday evening (June 9), the St. Mark Players are hoping to cap off the high school play season with some shiny, sweetsmelling hardware. That’s when three actors from Parfumerie plus two off-stage crews will represent St. Mark at the Cappies Gala (or the high school Oscars, as some call them) looking to hear their name called at the National Arts Centre. Madison Adams (who played Ms. Balash) is up for Lead Actress in a Play. Henry Freeth (Mr. Sipos) will contend for Supporting Actor, while Carter Ibach (Fritz) is up for Comic Ac-

conniving Mr. Kadar. It’s a story of laughter and love. The play is also up for awards in Props (Charlotte Bodger, Dillon Cooper, Reanne Richards) and Sets (Jeremy Anderson, Bramm Dressler, Henry Freeth, Callum Spinnewyn). “The kids worked so hard,” said director Trevor Rostek. “ I am glad to see these (students get rewarded with) nominations.” Actors from all 26 schools participating in Canada’s Capital Cappies program will walk the red carpet prior to the gala which begins inside Southam Hall at 6:30 sharp. Mauler and Rush are the hosts again this year.
