The MessengerNEWS LRT Phase 2 will open up options for rural Ottawa commuters By Charlie Senack and Jeff Morris

Shovels for Phase 2 of Ottawa’s LRT system will soon be in the ground. On March 22, Ontario Premier Doug Ford confirmed the province would put $1.208 billion towards the $4.65-billion Phase 2 LRT project. It’s the same amount of provincial funding the previous Wynne Liberal government committed to for the 44-kilometre rail expansion. “Our government is a strong supporter of public transit and making life easier for the people of Ontario,” Ford said during a press conference at OC Transpo’s Belfast Yards on Friday. “This project will transform the way people in Ottawa and commuters travel throughout this great city,” he added. Under the Phase 2 LRT expansion, the Confederation Line will travel to Montreal Road and Orleans in the east, and Moodie Drive and Baseline Station in the west. The Trillium line will also be expanded in two directions, going to the airport in the south end of the city, and Limebank Road in Riverside South. While the full Phase 2 expansion isn’t expected to be finished until 2025, the Trillium line expansion out to Riverside South is expected to be the first piece completed sometime in 2022. The purpose of extending the LRT line out to Limebank Rd is to plan ahead for the growing community of Riverside South which currently houses 16,000 residents, and is growing by about 2,000 people a year. The Ottawa Stage 2 LRT project will be capable of reaching a future capacity of up to 24,000 passengers per hour, each way during peak periods. “This is great for Riverside South, but it is also great for the entire rural south end of the city,” commented Osgoode Councillor George Darouze. “People from Manotick, Osgoode, Greely and Metcalfe, as well as other communities south of the city, will be using the LRT and catching it at Bowesville Road. There will also be people from Barrhaven who come across the bridge to use it. The LRT will just open up different options for commuters in the rural south end to get downtown.” Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari echoed the statements

made by Darouze. “This is incredible news for residents in Riverside south, Findlay Creek, Manotick, Stittsville, and in fact everywhere across the riding of Carleton,” said Goldie Ghamari, MPP for Carleton. “It was very important for me to ensure that the Trillium Line extended not just to Earl Armstrong/Bowesville station, but all the way to Limebank. By extending the Trillium Line to Limebank, we are taking a proactive approach to ensure that Ottawa’s transit infrastructure will not only meet the needs of residents today, but will also meet the needs of future residents in the rapidly growing communities of Riverside South and Findlay Creek.” “I’m very excited with where our city is headed and I can’t wait to see some shovels in the ground. Thank you Premier Ford and Minister Yurek for recognizing Ottawa as a world-class city that deserves world-class transit,” said MPP Ghamari. Mayor Jim Watson says this is the biggest and most expensive project the city has ever taken on, and surpasses the building of highway 417 and the Rideau Canal. Once the project is completed, he says 77 per cent of Ottawa residents will live within five kilometres of light rail service. “When stage two is completed, it will connect residents to our cities major centres of employment, our four post secondary institutions, shopping centres, and important cultural and tourism tourist attractions,” Watson said, adding that 24 new stations will be built. It will also help eliminate 900,000 annual bus trips into downtown, and will take 14,000 cars off of city roads during rush hour. It is also expected to reduce greenhouse emissions in the city by 110,000 tons a year. And while Phase 2 will not directly impact Barrhaven residents, commuters will be able to take the trains to Baseline traction, and take the bus rapid Transitway the rest of the way. Barrhaven residents will also be able to take the trains to Riverside South, where they can hop on a bus that will go over the Vimy Memorial Bridge. But while this is being seen as a big boost to the city, questions are now circulating as to why the city awarded SNCLavalin the contract to extend and maintain the Trillium Line,

even though the company failed to meet the minimum technical threshold during the light rail bid. Still, Watson and city officials are defending the process, and says he has full confidence in the procurement process. “It was approved by the fairness commissioner, approved unanimously by the selection committee, and most importantly it’s the best deal for taxpayers,” Watson said. “It was done by staff. It wasn’t politicians,” he added. “We don’t have the expertise to make those decisions.” The 27-year contract to SNC-Lavalin is valued at $1.6 billion, and came in at $230 million more than what the city wanted to spend. SNC says they promise to save the city $100 million over the three decade-

long contract. And in order to build the Trillium Line expansion, the city will have to close the existing line from Bayview to

Greenboro stations, in order to finish the project. During that time OC Transpo buses will have a parallel route in place. And once Phase 2 is com-

Local stakeholders meet with Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks

On Thursday March 14, I had the pleasure of hosting the Minister of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks for a roundtable discussion on reducing litter and waste with local stakeholders at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. Over 25 people attended and each person had the opportunity to share their best practices and concerns. Reducing litter and waste is an important issue for the government of Ontario, and one that is shared by the proud residents of Carleton. It was a very productive meeting and would like to thank the Minister and all those who attended

Introducing my first Private Member’s Bill

On Wednesday, March 28, I will be bringing my very first private members’ bill, the Supporting Ontario’s community, rural and agricultural newspapers act, 2019, up for second reading. If passed, this Act will change the arbitrary requirement that municipal notices be posted in newspapers with a publishing

frequency of weekly or less, which prevents many smaller, community newspapers from being able to post these notices, putting them at a competitive disadvantage. By amending the definition of a “newspaper” to include those who have a publishing frequency of a month or less, it will even the playing field for community newspapers. It would also save the municipalities money, as they could specifically target the areas in which they must post notice, as opposed to publishing in a larger newspaper which has many readers to which the notice is irrelevant.

I am looking forward working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisles on this important issue.

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 me 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 MessengerCOMMUNITY Business owners discuss challenges with Ontario Treasury Board President By Jeff Morris A number of Carleton riding business owners got the chance to express their challenges and concerns to Ontario Treasury Board President David Bethlanfalvy Saturday morning at Rideau Carleton Raceway. Bethlanfalvy was invited to meet local business leaders in a meeting set up by Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari. The purpose of his visit was to engage with local business leaders to get a clear understanding of the issues facing business owners and employers. “It was a very good exchange,” Bethlanfalvy said following the meeting. “I am grateful that everyone was able to give up a Saturday morning to come and share their insights with us.” Bethlanfalvy said that one of the major challenges of his government has been the province’s huge deficit and debt left behind by the previous Liberal Government, as well as the amount of red tape that businesses are facing. “We inherited a $15 billion deficit,” Bethlanfalvy bluntly stated at the beginning of the meeting. “We inherited a government that was spending $40 million per day more than it was taking in. After they had 15 years in power, our debt is now over $200 billion. But what did we get for that?” Ontario, he added, is the most indebted subnational government on the planet. He added that every hour, Ontario pays another $1.4 million in interest on its debt. “I’m very concerned about the path of Ontario,” he said. Bob Mitchell of SunTech Tomatoes in Manotick said that one of the challenges he faces is caused by the carbon tax program. It’s a tax that Bethlanfalvy says has had no effect on emissions. “I use carbon in my business,” Mitchell said. “I pay it, but my competitors don’t have to. The hydro debt has to paid, but not with my money.” Mitchell was one of several employers in the room who also said that finding millennial generation employees who were willing to work was a problem. “We have to educate millennials to want to work,” he

said. Mike Medeiros, owner of Carleton Mushroom Farms, brought up a couple of obstacles facing his company. One of the big ones involves red tape. He has been trying to a natural gas connection to his business for the past seven years. The cost for the 6.8 km of pipeline was originally a half million dollars. Medeiros said that when he inquired about the line, he was told they were “too busy.” The cost of the pipeline has ballooned to $1.4 million. “The red tape is ridiculous,” Medeiros said. “Forty per cent of our mushrooms are shipped to the US. Access to proper labour and proper energy will help us grow.” Bethlanfalvy commented that Ontario was the “red tape capital of North America,” and that the Ford Government is aiming to eliminate 25 per cent of the legislation by 25 per cent. “There are 400,000 pieces of red tape in Ontario,” he said. “That’s the most in North America.” Spa owner Catherine Wood said the red tape she faces in her business “is a joke, and the regulations I have to follow are not sustainable.” She added that one of the battles she is facing involves the underground economy. “It’s killing my industry,” she said. “We train them, and they work for 2000 hours. Then they go out on their own and work from their homes, and pay no overhead or no taxes.” Marcel Moncion, who owns Moncion’s Your Independent Grocer in Riverside South, has 365 employees. About one half of his employees are young. “We spend money to train people, but then they leave,” he said. “In some cases, it’s a challenge to get them to work more than a shift per week.” Gino Milito of Orchard View Conference Centre has about 150 employees, and he says their biggest issue is staffing. “The government is making it difficult for us to get staff,” he said. “People will work for a week and then take two days off. People are taking it. The government is tying our hands.”

Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari and Ontario Treasury Board President Peter Bethlanfalvy met with local business owners at Rideau Carleton Raceway Saturday morning. Jeff Morris photo Milito, who is also the President of the Osgoode Ward Business Association, said that the difficulty in running a business makes it tempting for owners to give up.

“People are throwing their hands up,” he said. “They wonder why they bother being in business. They wonder why they shouldn’t just get a job. The government is tying our

hands.” Several of the business owners talked about being undercut by Quebec competitors and workers. Milito added that for events, many people and businesses

cross the border to purchase cheaper alcohol in Quebec. “The previous government did not stand up for Ontario on interprovincial partnerships or relationships,” Ghamari said.

his language. “I’m going to look so deezed.” He stared at me. “Um, deezed doesn’t mean that,” he said. “Deezed means, like, muscular or jacked. It doesn’t mean cool.” If only they had a Rosetta Stone CD set to learn Millennial-speak.” “I’m still going to look deezed in this,” I FROM THE said. “Yeah, I guess,” he said, as he put his bud back in his ear and turned his attention back to the auto-tooned rap by Jeff Morris drivel with computerized drums and no instruments thumping out of his device. Clearly, he was on Team Diva for this one. “Seriously,” she interjected. “That is going to show every single thing you put in your mouth when you wear that. Remember that nice hoodie I got you for Christmas that was covered in Frank’s hot sauce within an hour of you putting it on?” Oh yeah. But I didn’t care. This was an amazing hoodie and it was $14. She shook her head at the checkout. Once in the car, we decided to make a game of it. What would Jeff spill on his new hoodie first? It would be a multiple choice. A would be ketchup. B would be peanut butter or a similar spread. Almond butter and Nutella were acceptable for B. For C, we went with Diet Coke or another staining beverage. D was pizza. I have a horrible track record in that department. E was egg yolk from an over GROCER easy egg that would slide off my fork onto my, um, deezed chest. And F was ‘other’. Everybody made their guesses. When we stopped for dinner on the way home – it was a big, sloppy, roadhouse burger – I was put to the test. But I called an audible. I walked into the restroom, took off my new white hoodie, and just wore the Adidas t-shirt that I was wearing underneath it. Adam, meanwhile, accidentally stuck his arm in a lake of ketchup on his plate. His brand new white Hollister jacket and the white shirt he was wearing both got it. He was crushed. I felt bad for him, but I couldn’t help but feel relieved that someone other than me had, well, Jeffed their clothes at dinner. The last stop on the way home was Walmart. The Diva got a Tide stick to get the stain out of Adam’s shirt and jacket. She looked over at me, and grabbed a handful of them. “We are going to keep these handy,” she said, giving me that look. I looked around Walmart and I faced the truth. I don’t need a Tide stick for when I eat. I need a shower curtain.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Daffodil symbolizes strength and courage in the fight against cancer Since the 1950s, bright yellow daffodils have arrived in communities across Canada to mark the beginning of Daffodil Month. To this day, the daffodil continues to symbolize strength and courage in the fight against cancer. This is a flower that you will see in all sorts of spring bouquets. There are other

uses for this flower though; there are cultures that really like this flower. The Chinese actually see it as a symbol of

wealth and good fortune and celebrate when the daffodil blooms. The good thing about the daffodil is that it is so easy to grow. This is a flower that is a great beginner flower and this is proven with all the flowerbeds that it is in across the world. Make sure that if you are growing this flower that you are taking care of it, give it

enough water and make sure that it has proper drainage. The daffodil is the symbol adopted for cancer research, organizations that raise money for cancer use this as their fundraising symbol and have daffodil days which are going to give people a flower in return for the donation to the Cancer Society. It is easy to support

Terra Plants and Flowers and Manotick Shoe Repair

Councillor | Rideau-Goulbourn

By Krysia Kurylowicz

I have a huge shoe fetish, but because of my very large feet, I am severely limited in my choices. I try to take care of the footwear I own because it’s harder to find replacements than it is to hang on to the old. Shoe repair is a dying art and it is very difficult to find a place that does professional workmanship so that I can wear those precious finds as long as possible! We are so lucky in Manotick to have just such a place right in the village in the building that used to house NAPA Auto Parts. The young family that has taken over the location on Clapp Lane near Main Street have cleverly combined their love of flowers with the skill of shoe repair under one roof! Walking into the space was a delightful surprise! The displays are bright with an airy natural feel. The shop is gorgeous—brimming with beautiful exceptionally healthy house plants, flowers, air ferns, succulents and dried flowers, coupled with attractive gift items and hand-crafted cards. At the back of the store, Jonathan Kim has set up his shop. He can renew or repair any shoes, boots or leather items and also offers a skate sharpening service. Simply bring in your tired footwear and he can give you an estimate on the spot. Jonathan’s wife Minkyoung and her Eunwoo are delighted to share their love of flowers. Eunwoo had many happy childhood memories growing up in her mother’s plant shop. She had always dreamed of having the same opportunity in Canada. The women also offer all the services typically associated with a flower shop including wedding flowers, special events, corporate gifts, Christmas decorations, sympathy and funeral arrangements. Delivery is available throughout Ot-

Manotick’s Sinclair injured, team finishes seventh at World Championships

(SILKEBORG, Denmark) – Jamie Sinclair and Team USA were improving with every game and narrowing in on a playoff berth when an injury put a halt to their plans at the 2019 LGT World Women’s Curling Championship. Sinclair, who grew up in Manotick but skips the US team because she was born in Alaska, was forced out of the lineup last Friday afternoon against Switzerland due to an injury she sustained when she fell at the conclusion of the morning game against Scotland. The team tried to rally with Sarah Anderson taking over the skipping duties but could not hold off playoffbound Switzerland in a close 5-4 loss this afternoon at Silkeborg Sportscenter. The loss to Silvana Tirinzoni’s team eliminated the U.S. after a 6-6 round robin finish. With the injury to Sinclair, Sarah Anderson (Minneapolis, Minn.) played skip with Vicky Persinger (Fairbanks, Alaska)

sliding in at vice skip along with Taylor Anderson (Minneapolis, Minn.), and Monica Walker (St. Paul, Minn.). “We were really getting in a groove there and feeling good. It’s really unfortunate that Jamie ended up getting injured. But going into this last game, everyone was focused on trying to pick up some slack and help me with line, help Vicky get used to the ice, and try to really pull it together to win that game,” Sarah Anderson said. Despite the seventh place finish and the injury, Sinclair had a big highlight at the championships as she led the US to a 13-6 win over Canada in a game televised on TSN. In the sixth end, Canada had a three-point lead it had established early with a first-end steal of three, was sitting first, third and fourth in the rings with Canadian skip Chelsea Carey about to throw her first stone of the end. Her rock would rub off a guard and promote a U.S. stone, which then

Sinclair followed up with a double-takeout to remove the other Canadian granite and suddenly the U.S. was sitting five. Carey rebounded with a wonderful hit and roll to the button behind a U.S. guard. But Sinclair made the raise takeout to put five on the scoreboard.

Lépine Luxury Apartments offers a new lease on lifestyle Howard Grant Terrace will bring luxury apartment living to Barrhaven in spring of 2021 A new lease on lifestyle is about simplifying your life, not downsizing it. That’s the message that has driven the Lépine family as they have helped many Ottawa residents upgrade their lifestyles in a Lépine luxury apartment. Lépine is bringing its luxury apartment living concept to Barrhaven. Already in Kanata Lakes, Carleton Place and the Vanier Parkway, the Lépine Apartments building will offer first class amenities in what will be some of Ottawa’s finest buildings. While the amenities and the finishes will make for a beautiful building, the foundation has to have a strong and reliable framework. “The bones have to be solid,” said Francesca LépineWilson. Francesca and her brother, Francis, learned the business from their father, René, a world-class developer. By solid bones, Francesca means that her family’s buildings feature thick concrete floors, R40 insulation in the exterior walls, thick sound insulation, and windows that are above code to ensure both energy efficiency and an increased level of soundproofing. Each property constructed by Lépine comes with open lounge areas, massage chairs, recreation rooms, pools, and fitness centres, all with secure and interconnected access from every unit. Residents can relax with friends, hit the gym, or unwind in the luxurious saltwater pool without having to think twice about

the weather or time of day. There are even terraces with barbecues and guest suite hosting for visiting family. Underground, there are spacious, climate-controlled lockers and parking for bikes, cars, and other belongings. A number of parking stalls are prepared with outlets for charging electric cars. Francis Lépine’s vision was to redesign the traditional apartment building bring apartment rentals to the 21st century. “We call it a new generation of rentals,” Francesca said. “It’s rethinking rentals and making them feel more like a home. We want it to be more like something you would build yourself with more attention to detail.” The Lépines built and eventually sold the Williams Court complex in Kanata.

They currently have four new buildings built or being built in the Ottawa area. Les Terrasses Francesca is a high-end luxury building with 24/7 security at the door, underground parking and free guest parking. It is on the site of the former Franciscan nuns’ convent at 1425 Vanier Parkway. Units range from 825 to 1,725 square feet. The building includes a gathering place called ‘Main Street’. Residents have access to a saltwater pool, fitness centre, yoga studio and a lounge with pool table and large-screen TV. There’s also a reception room with a full caterer’s kitchen and a baby grand piano in the foyer. Johanne’s Court opens near the downtown core in Carleton Place on July 1, the first building of its kind in the quaint and charming

town southwest of Ottawa. The building is a low-rise, concrete structure with underground parking and suites ranging from 926 to 1,389 square feet. Rent includes heat, air conditioning, hot water, six appliances, window coverings, locker and bicycle storage. The 2019 expansion will include amenities such as a fitness centre and party room. Lépine calls its Kanata Lakes building, Saint Émilion, “La crème de la crème”. Opening in the fall, it is surrounded by green spaces with ponds and walkways. It is located at 1136 Maritime Way, and it will feature just 154 units sized between 835 and 2,187 square feet. The building will include a fitness centre and party room with a caterer’s kitchen. It’s just two blocks from the Kanata Cen-

Lépine luxury apartment buildings include salt water pools for the relaxation of residents and their guests.




René Lépine’s vision becomes a family affair With humble beginnings in home construction in Montreal, René Lépine would leave an historic signature on the skyline of his home city. When Montreal was awarded the 1976 Olympic Games, a new stadium was to be built, and with it, an athlete’s village. While the stadium side of the project was one that presented decades-long challenges to the city, it was René who designed and built Montreal’s Olympic Village on time and on budget. This was a remarkable achievement considering the initial contractor’s project fell apart just 14 months before the 1976 Games. René gained valuable experience as a builder during the housing boom of the 1950s. He would move on to work on high-rises and condominium projects beginning in the 1960s. In 1997, he renovated Horizon Towers at Rideau and Chapel Streets. While the project was something different from the norm for the company, the Lépines identified a new and emerging niche market that would escort them into the next generation of building. “My father always had a knack for being ahead of the curve,” said Francesca. With the baby boom generation aging and approaching retirement, many found themselves wanting more freedom to travel and shed the responsibilities of home ownership. However, options were limited. They were too young to live in seniors’ homes. They did not want the burden of ownership that condos presented, and apartment options were more geared toward student life. “We came up with a more appropriate option that allows them to downsize without compromise,” Francesca explained. René brought his children up in the industry, and created a solid foundation for a strong family business. He raised Francis and Francesca on the golden rule of property management: Put yourself in your client’s shoes; treat them as you would like to be treated.
