Bachelor and bachelorette ideas!

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

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

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



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

Cranberry Creek Municipal Drain to carry a high price tag for landowners Landowners in the rural North Gower and Kars areas were out in full force and had their say as the City of Ottawa’s Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee accepted a report on the Cranberry Creek Municipal Drain. Repairing and cleaning the drain will carry a price tag of about $1.6 million. The majority of that money will be reclaimed through assessments to landowners whose properties benefit from the work. Rideau Goulbourn Councillor and ARAC Chair Scott Moffatt said the purpose of meeting was to discuss the Engineer’s Report, prepared by Drainage Engineer Andy Robinson. The Cranberry Creek Municipal Drain item dates back to 2012 and

beyond. After a very wet spring in 2012, landowners on this municipal drain raised concerns about its maintenance. As of approximately 1991, the drain actually lacked a pump and dyke system that allowed it to operate as per the approved Engineer’s Report. In essence, the municipal drain has not been properly functioning since that time. The drain itself was originally constructed in 1895 but the pump and dyke were installed following an updated Engineer’s Report in 1969. That system remained in place for over two decades but it was considered insufficient based on the volume of water it could handle. An updated report in 1991 recommended up-

grades to the pump and dyke at that time but it was not accepted by Rideau Township and the landowners at that time. As mentioned above, the matter resurfaced nearly six years ago leading to our current report. In September 2014, the city appointed Robinson Consultants to update the Engineer’s Report and bring forward a plan to have the municipal drain function as was intended and also to clean it out to its original depths. Landowners assessed by this municipal drain received the Engineer’s Report in recent weeks which outlines the proposed works as well as the assessment values. Being a significant watershed, there are many properties affected by these drainage works. “I understand that the

assessments can create undue burden on affected landowners and I have committed to doing what I can to find some financial assistance to lower those assessments,” said Moffatt. “That work will likely continue right through into April when this matter returns for the Court of Revision process.” One landowner adjacent to the drainage system, Jim Johnston, said that he would give the city the land needed for the drainage and pump system if the city would pick up the tab. He estimated that the land he would turn over would be the equivalent of about 14 lots with a value of more than $1 million. “I’ve lived through the whole history of Cranberry Creek,” Johnston

ARAC approves zoning amendment to Perth Street development in Richmond The City of Ottawa Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee has approved the amendment of a zoning bylaw for a planned development on Perth Street in Richmond. The zoning, originally approved through an Ontario Municipal Board settlement, was based on the draft approved subdivision plan. Richmond Village Developments have made some modifications to the plan with the submission of the first phase for the subdivision registration. The line work for the zone boundaries does not match, and an amendment to the zoning maps is required to address that. That first phase includes a park, the storm pond and about 220 single-family lots. There was one comment from the public stating that the development, in particular two

houses, should not have been approved without notice. The commentator is concerned that the two houses under construction, berms and fill are restricting the flow of water to the Van Gaal Municipal Drain, causing the water to back up onto adjacent fields and

making cropping impossible. The two houses and related grading were reviewed and approved as dry model homes (i.e. not connected to services). While the overall subdivision grading is still under review for the final approval of Phase

1, it is the City’s practise to account for off site drainage through a proposed development. A request has been made to the developer and the City inspector to assess and remedy any drainage issues relating to the adjacent property as soon as it is feasible.

said. “We’ve put up with poor drainage for 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 years. I’ll pay you a million dollars, you pay for the drain.” Johnston added that he liked the plan presented by Robinson. “We’ve needed this for years,” he added. North Gower area farmer Mel Foster said that part of his land drains into Cranberry Creek. Last year’s flooding and the lack of drainage created a difficult year for farmers. The same thing happened in

2013. “It’s a big bill, said Foster. “We don’t necessarily want to pay for it, but something has got to b done. I’m in favour of the dyke and the municipal drain so we can crop and grow vegetables for the City of Ottawa.” Moffatt said that for those wishing to appeal the assessments, that opportunity will come during the Court of Revision, which is scheduled for Monday, April 23 at the Alfred Taylor Recreation Centre in North Gower.

Ghamari endorses Christine Elliott during her visit to Carleton riding By Jeff Morris Carleton Progressive Conservative candidate Goldie Ghamari has endorsed Christine Elliott for the upcoming leadership race for the party. Ghamari made the announcement during Elliott’s visit to the riding Wednesday, before the PC leadership debate last Wednesday in Ottawa. She said that Elliott is the PC leadership candidate who can best bring the party together. “Her focus has always been on defeating Kathleen Wynne,” Ghamari said. “She is the leadership candidate best suited to help us win and form the provincial government in June.” Ghamari invited all four of the PC leadership candidates to Carleton. Elliott was the only one who accepted the invite and visited the riding. “She is promoting a message of unity,” Ghamari added. Elliott was happy to ac-

cept the endorsement. “I am very pleased to have Goldie’s support,” Elliott told the Messenger. “She will do a wonderful job as an MPP. She has a strong background as a lawyer, and she has been a good volunteer for the party.” Elliott added that Ghamari, as a young professional woman, will bring some youth to the party and ensure its strong future. “She brings a lot to the table,” said Elliott. “I will enjoy working with her.” Elliott is plugged into rural Eastern Ontario, and is aware of the issues. She has worked closely with Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod and actually joined the Tory caucus on the say day that MacLeod did. Both won by-elections to win their seats. She has also worked alongside Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark. “The Wynne Liberals have an urban focus that centres around Toronto,” Elliott said.

Braid says Tory coup of Patrick Brown will set up an NDP minority government The Editor, I suppose that nobody should be surprised that following the recent palace coup in the Ontario PC party that saw Patrick Brown ousted as leader, Jeff Morris has come out solidly in support of the Alt-right forces that probably engineered Brown’s demise. While Morris did say that Brown should have “the opportunity to clear his name and move forward with his political career,” he also made it clear that any attempt by Brown to regain the leadership was simply out of the question. “Jumping back in is 100 per cent about Patrick Brown, and it has created a sideshow,” according to Morris. That last statement is rather ironic, since it was Brown’s removal that has created the sideshow that is the Ontario PC leader-

ship contest. Ontario residents have been treated to two “debates” involving four woefully inadequate candidates, all of whom sound like they’re reading from the same Republican Party teleprompter. “Carbon taxes are bad,” “sexed in schools is a terrible idea,” etc., etc., followed by the inevitable, “I’ll cut your taxes AND reduce the deficit.” Could any thinking person take any of these people seriously? And what’s with this Tanya Granic Allen, the token So-Con apparently obsessed with what she describes as, “Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum?” Dare we tell her that Ontario doesn’t actually have a “sex-ed curriculum,” but rather it has a “Health and Physical Education curriculum” of which “sexed” is but a tiny subcomponent, usually delivered

by a public health nurse in two one-hour sessions over the course of an entire school year? Talk about being obsessed with minutia! Or how about Caroline Mulroney, the expatriate American citizen now vying for the leadership? Is she “just visiting” Ontario long enough to try for party leader, and If her attempt fails, will she then return to the country to which she has so passionately pledged her allegiance? Then there’s Doug Ford, who likes to believe his family represents a political dynasty, like the Kennedys. In reality, according to the Globe and Mail, Ford’s family is a lot more like the “Sopranos” than the Kennedys. A 2013 investigative article entitled “Globe Investigation: The Ford Family’s

leadership conventions remains utterly unblemished. When Christine Elliot is the best the party has to offer, the party clearly has a problem. It’s just unfortunate that the Ontario PC party would choose this time to self-destruct, especially when Patrick Brown—having moved the party closer to the centre ideologically—was poised to cruise to an easy victory over Kathleen Wynne. Now, with the Alt-right forces once again fully in control of the party, that widerT:5.063” appeal will be

lost as the party panders to its narrow Alt-right base. Naturally, any insider proposing ideas that are even slightly progressive will be identified as an enemy of the party, which is probably why the National Post’s Christie Blatchford recently characterized the post-Brown Ontario PC party as “a nest of vipers.” Oh well, the good news is that we’ll probably end up with a minority government with the NDP holding the balance of power!

Of course, Doug Ford denied the allegations at the time and insisted he would sue the Globe, but in the five years since the article was printed has never done so, and the article remains online, which I think tells us all that we need to know. That leaves perennial PC party leadership contender Christine Elliot, whose record at losing at

Review and comment on the functional design

• Mitch Owens Road: The City proposes to implement enhanced paved shoulders on Mitch Owens Road between River Road and Dozois Road. Along the frontage of George Nelms Park and St. Marks Catholic School a pathway is proposed. These would be shared facilities for use by residents both on foot and on bike. • Rideau Forest Neighbourhood Route: For the eastern segment of the project the link follows local streets and an existing off-road pathway through the Rideau Forest Neighbourhood. Wayfinding signage is provided, and pavement markings indicate sharing of the road. The segment of Gough Road between Dutchess Crescent and the Doug Thompson pathway is proposed to be widened to include paved shoulders. Tell Us What You Think Please review the project information and design drawings online at Ottawa.ca/OsgoodePathway by March 20, 2018. If you have any comments on this proposal, please provide them using the online feedback form or directly to the project manager listed below.

The MessengerNEWS Commuters sound off over poor service provided by OC Transpo

‘Fake riders’ who get on 95 downtown and hop off after a couple of stops make it impossible for commuters to get home in decent time The villagers may not have shown up with their Tiki torches lit, but the OC Transpo riders certainly did. Councillors Jan Harder, Michael Qaqish and Scott Moffatt hosted a forum for OC Transpo riders at Pierre Savard Secondary School last Tuesday night. More than 100 people representing the wards of all three hosting councillors showed up to vent their frustrations. Miguel Tremblay, Senior Development Planner at FoTenn Consultants, and Chris Gordon, a transportation engineer with Parsons, co-hosted the meeting. They expressed to the crowd that they wanted to gather information on the problems that riders were experiencing so that they could be presented to OC Transpo officials. “When you think about it, a commuter getting the bus in Barrhaven could drive to work in Kingston in the same amount of time as it takes them to get to downtown Ottawa using OC Transpo,” said Councillor Jan Harder, who said her office has been inundated with complaints about public transit services. Harder did not want OC Transpo representatives at the meeting, fearing the fireworks would be

counterproductive. The problem extends beyond Barrhaven. Moffatt, whose ward has grown north into the southern part of Half Moon Bay and Stonebridge, says that commuters in his ward use Barrhaven’s park and rides as a transit hub as well. “There are a lot of people from North Gower who take the 95,” Moffatt said. “In fact, a lot of rural residents in North Gower, Kars and Manotick do. People drive to Barrhaven to the park and ride and then ride the bus downtown. People wish there were better transit options for residents of rural Ottawa, but they know there aren’t and they just accept it.” Moffatt added that the rural residents pay far less for transit services on their tax bills. Getting in and out of Barrhaven is as much of a problem for them as it is for Barrhaven residents. Many of the problems were centered around the bus on route 95, which replaced the 177 bus. Many of the attendees at the meeting referred to the route as a “milk run.” Amanda Bernardo, who triggered the #LifeOnThe95 Twitter campaign that was featured in the Barrhaven Independent last month, caught Harder’s attention. Harder is

also a frequent rider on the bus and has experienced what the commuters are going through. “The buses are always full, drivers pass riders waiting for the bus, and the buses are often late or even missing,” said Harder of the 95 route. Half Moon Bay resident Robert Finkle was one of the OC Transpo riders who is dissatisfied with the service. “I don’t think the 95 is planned well,” said Finkle. “And snow removal on River Mist is an issue.” The number of different routes in and out of Barrhaven is limited, and the number of riders exceeds the number of seats on buses in commuting hours. Finkle said that while getting downtown in the morning is one issue, getting back to Barrhaven on the 95 is a whole new adventure. Those at the meeting described getting onto a bus downtown as a free-for-all. While the 95 bus is the one that heads to Barrhaven, the bus is jammed with fake riders – those who get on the bus and only stay on for a couple of stops before getting off – are preventing commuters to and from Barrhaven from catching their bus. “I am tired of being

stranded at Fallowfield,” Finkle said. “I wait 40 minutes there for a bus. If I go an alternate route, I get stuck at (RioCan) Marktplace. I don’t complain because by the time I get home, I am just too tired to. The older parts of Barrhaven have the 270 series. Why can’t we?” But the grass is not necessarily greener on the 270-series buses. Renee Berry, who uses the 277 bus to get to and from work at the Bank and Slater area downtown, says that the service is the worst she has seen in 20 years of commuting to and from Barrhaven. “There have been mornings where it has been cold and snowing and I have waited for 40 minutes at my stop for a bus,” Berry said. “When I called OC Transpo, I was told the buses were running a half hour late. So then where was the bus scheduled for a half hour earlier?” Berry said that getting a bus home from downtown is also difficult. Her route to Barrhaven is jammed with riders heading to Baseline station. She called for the return of express routes to and from Bar-

rhaven, and and several others said they would be willing to pay a premium for that service. Harder was as frustrated as the commuters. She said the problems began with the cancellation of the OTrain service that would have served Barrhaven more than a decade ago. “That was a 13-11 vote that we lost, and look where it has left us?” said Barrhaven. “The east-west corridors in Barrhaven are very poorly served again, because the spine of the

system is all north-south. It should not take an hour and a half for commuters to catch a bus and then get downtown, and then go through an even more difficult process in getting home.” Complaints and comments were compiled and have been presented to OC Transpo to be addressed. Harder said she wants to host a follow-up meeting in April with OC Transpo present so that the concerns of commuters can be addressed.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY


Some life lessons learned from the ghost of Watson’s Mill Many readers may know that I talk to Ann, the ghost of Watson’s Mill, often. We have a great friendship that developed many years ago when I walked past the Mill on my way to High School on the Island! Often, as I walked by, I would wave to the window that became known as “Ann’s Window”, second floor near the dam. Many years later I found that I could communicate with Ann in an unusual way and I still do. She tells me some “gems” and as she does I write them down. I would like to share some of those with you. They are short and to the point so for easy reading I will number each. 1. Everything has its beauty… but not everyone


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis sees it. 2.It’s important for parents to live the same things they teach. 3,One of the beautiful things about friendships is that they are shared. 4.When you throw mud at someone, remember you are the one who is losing ground. 5.Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together. 6.Anger is a condition in

which the tongue works faster than the mind 7.There is no right way to do the wrong thing. 8.The most valuable antique is an old friend. 9.Love is something you cannot give away entirely. It always comes back to you. 10.Be happy with the things you have. 11.Happiness adds and multiplies as we divide it with others.

12.Speak kind words and you will hear kind echoes 13.Of all the things you wear, a smile is the most important 14.Kind words take less breath than angry words. 15,Never let yesterday use up today. For the record - I do not suggest that these “gems” have not been written, spoken or told by anyone else - just that Ann said them to me. Maybe an Angel told her! Every March 11th I try and visit Ann at the Mill, sometimes it is cold or snowing but “we have a date” and 2018 will be the 157th anniversary of the accident that took her life. We’ll talk again in a few days.

Online consultation launched on pathway from Osgoode to Manotick The City is looking for feedback on the proposed pathway connecting the Osgoode Pathway and Manotick. The project information and design drawings can be found at Ottawa. c a / Os g o o d e p a t h w a y. The documents focus on two areas: a paved pathway along Mitch Owens between Dozois Road and Longshadow Street in the Village and the eastern portion of the pathway between St. Mark High School and the Osgoode Pathway (renamed the Doug Thompson Pathway) which will follow streets in the Rideau Forest Neighbourhood. The pathway along Mitch Owens would consist of paved shoulders with rumble strips on both sides of the road and is to be used by cyclists and walkers. The funds for construction of the pathway were approved in the last City Budget. Comments can be provided using the online feedback form or by emailing the project manager at adam. horlop@ottawa.ca.

Q: Why does your dental plan pay less than what your dentist charges?

Q: Why should I book my vacation with Maritime Travel?

A: All dental insurance plans are different; some only cover a percentage of your visit, have a deductible per year or may use a fee guide form an earlier year. Most plans also have a maximum limit per year per person. All of these decisions are determined by what your employer has purchased from the insurance company. Unfortunately, dental insurance does not always provide coverage with your dental health in mind. It is rare that insurance will cover the full cost of dental treatment. Dentists will always diagnose treatment in the best interest of the patient’s dental and overall health. DR. CHEVREUL HARRIS DR. KAREN FUNG-HARRIS AND ASSOCIATES

Mixed messages causing confusion over LRT, Hard Rock Casino Over the last few weeks, there have been two items that have been discussed around City Hall and in the media. Both items have been the source of confusion. With mixed messages coming out of City Hall, it cannot be easy for the general public to keep things straight. The two issues are LRT and the Hard Rock Casino. Last month, we learned that the LRT opening was going to happen in November. It was initially anticipated that the new rail line would be open by Canada Day. Rideau Transit Group (RTG) informed the City last month that they would not meet the contracted Revenue Service Availability (RSA) date of May 24, 2018. They then set a new RSA date of November 2, 2018. There are liquidated damages associated with the RSA date. However, the contract allows for RTG to delay the RSA date once without having to pay liquidated damages. That amount is $1M. Section 26.7 of the LRT contract specifically states that the RSA can be delayed once without penalty. If they miss the November 2nd date, they will be charged the $1M. That part of the contract is clear as well. The costs of delaying the RSA for RTG far outweigh the liquidated damages, however, The other matter is the Hard Rock Casino application, which was submitted early last month. The plan, originally announced in 2017, calls for the addition of a hotel, entertainment venue to be known as Hard Rock Live, and an increase in on site gaming including an additional 20 table games and 750 slot machines. The entire plan represents a $320M investment in the Rideau Carleton Raceway and


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

ensures the future of the rural facility that seemed destined to be shut down only a few short years ago. The cause for confusion seems to stem from a 2013 Council decision that made the Rideau Carleton Raceway the preferred site for the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation’s modernization plans. At that time, the zoning only allowed for 21 table games. The number of slots was never included in zoning meaning there was never a restriction, from the City’s perspective, on the number of slots that could be included. The Council motion in 2013 spoke to the current configuration but also prefaced the future expansion and potential development application. The Modernization Plan clearly laid out that the Ottawa gaming zone could accommodate up to 2000 slots and 600 table game positions, or around 80 tables. The existing facility had 1250 slots and no tables. Recently, members of Council have raised concern suggesting that Council capped the number of slots. Unfortunately, they are wrong. The Zoning By-Law is clear and the mention of 1250 slots in the 2013 Council decision is nothing more than that, a mention. With these two items, depending on whom you listen to, it sounds like Council does not know what we are doing. It sounds like we do not understand the decisions we are making, that we don’t actually read the

reports. It is incredibly unfortunate and completely unnecessary that these notions are out there. The LRT contract is clear and the gaming related motions approved by Council are clear. It is our job to ensure clarity and some of us need to be doing a better job of it.

owner has been working with the Manotick Horticultural Society to allow them to preserve certain plantings that were on site. To prepare the site for construction, the tree removal will be significant.

Clapp Lane Development

Ottawa is participating in the Government of Canada’s Smart Cities Challenge. The City needs your help identifying Ottawa’s challenge and how we could solve it, since people are key to making cities smarter. What are some of the challenges facing our city that, if addressed, would help to improve the lives of those that live, work and play in Ottawa? Developing a smart cities approach to address challenges requires strong support from residents and community partners. It involves finding innovative solutions that use data and connected technology to resolve real world challenges.

In the fall, I announced that a meeting would be forthcoming to highlight to development plans for 1125 Clapp Lane. After some discussions with the developer and some minor changes to the façade of the building, we are now working on an April date for the open house with Reichmann Seniors Housing. This will be an opportunity for the community to get an update on plans that were first approved by the City a few years ago. In the meantime, you can expect to see tree removal begin on the site in the coming days and weeks. The property

The MessengerSPORTS Despite short season, Ryan O’Connell ready to play in Boston next year Manotick Station native and Toronto Maple Leaf draft pick Ryan O’Connell may have had his season shortened due to injury, but he will be ready to suit up for the Boston University Terriers in the fall. O’Connell, who had played for St. Andrew’s College last season, began this season with the Penticton Vees of the

BC Junior Hockey League. He was selected to play for Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge held in Truro, Nova Scotia in December. Although his team won a gold medal, the tournament – and his season – came to an early end for O’Connell, as he suffered a broken arm and had surgery last month. Before his injury,

O’Connell, a 6’2”, 170-pound defenceman, had three goals and 11 assists for 14 points in 26 games. Ryan O’Connell, a 2017 Toronto Maple Leaf draft pick from Manotick Station, played for Canada West in the 2017 World Junior A Challenge.
