Light rail expansion to Limebank Road expected to help local commuters By Charlie Senack Light Rail Transit won’t be rolling through Barrhaven anytime soon, but an expected expansion of the Trillium Line to Limebank Road will make commuting in and out of Barrhaven a little easier. On Thurs., May 3, Mayor Jim Watson, alongside Liberal Members of Provincial Parliament Bob Chiarelli and John Fraser, announced that the Ontario Provincial Government is putting $50 million toward expanding the Trillium Line of the O-Train out to Limebank Road. As a result, those who live in Riverside South and Barrhaven are expected to have an easier time with public transit. Property developers Urbandale Corporation and Richcraft Homes, two of Riverside South’s bigger property developers, have also stated that they are going to throw an additional $30 million into the pot. That will bring the government funding of the project to $80 million. That money will come from special levies that will come from the sale of homes in the area. “This funding is in addition to the one billion dollars Ontario has already invested in stage two of the LRT project, and adds to the single largest investment any provincial government has made to support Ottawa’s public transit,” said Bob Chiarelli, MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean and the minister of infrastructure. A similar plan was introduced when Chiarelli was Mayor of Ottawa, but it was scrapped in 2006 because the public felt it was “a train to nowhere” as council called it. The plans being scrapped resulted in Chiarelli losing

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Sapling from a Vimy Ridge acorn planted at Claudette Cain Park

By Messenger Staff A piece of history from the Battle of Vimy Ridge has been planted at Claudette Cain Park in Riverside South. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion Barrhaven and South Carleton branches were on hand as an oak sapling was planted at Claudette Cain Park Monday morning. The sapling descends from an acorn of an oak tree picked up at the site of the Battle of Vimy Ridge more than 100 years ago. “This bridge was named Vimy Bridge to honour and remember the sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers,” said former city councillor and deputy mayor Steve Desroches. “There is great symbolism having those trees here.”

Also on hand at the ceremony were Councillors Jan Harder, Scott Moffatt, Michael Qaqish and George Darouze. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod was also on hand, and got emotional in saying that it was her last official event representing the riding. “I was there to help rebuild the Legion in Manotick when it burned down, and I was there for the opening of the Barrhaven Legion,” said a teary-eyed MacLeod. She will be running for the Progressive Conservative Party in the newly created Nepean riding next month. Allan Haan of the Manotick Legion said that members of both Legion beaches were excited to see the sapling dedicated. “It’s a perfect and fitting piece of history,”

Local dignitaries joined members of the Royal Canadian Legion Barrhaven and Manotick branches for the dedication of a Vimy Oak sapling at Claudette Cain Park last Monday. Jeff Morris photo

Haan said. He described how an oak forest was destroyed at the Battle of Vimy Ridge in France, and how a Canadian sol-

dier grabbed acorns after the battle and brought them back to Canada. “Those acorns were planted in southern On-

tario, and the sapling are from acorns of those trees,” he said. A sapling from a Vimy Oak was also planted in

Barrhaven. “Eventually there will be plaques there to commemorate the Vimy oaks,” he said.

Five years after kidney transplant, Manotick man encourages others to become donors By Charlie Senack It was in 2008 when Manotick resident David Presley found out his kidney was only working at a 13 percent function rate, and he would need to get a transplant or else he would die. Now, five years after getting that life saving transplant, he and his wife Lyn are encouraging everyone to become an organ donor. Their journey started after a routine visit to the doctor’s office. After a few rounds of blood work, it was determined his kidney was failing, and he was rushed to the hospital. Their they kept him for five days until letting him go — saying they would think about dialysis after Christmas. Sadly, Presley wasn’t able to wait that long and was put on hemodialysis which cleans the bloods toxins three times a week, and was on that from November 2008 until March 2009. “I was having a little bit of trouble with the hemo because the lines were blocking,” said David Presley. “They said ‘we are going to have to move you onto another type of dialysis’ so then

they put me on another one which caused a catheter to be put in my stomach.” The catheter was installed by surgery into the stomach, which went into the peritoneal cavity. Its purpose was to drain dialysate, a fluid used in dialysis, into the cavity, a process which takes about half an hour, and is done four times a day. Patients are usually only able to stay on this method for about five years. David received a call on March 29, 2013 — five years after first being put on the list – saying they had a kidney available. They rushed up to the hospital immediately, and had the surgery that night. “It was quite the journey, but we had a lot of faith through it,” said David’s wife Lyn, recalling the day they first got the news. “So much of the journey is staying positive saying ‘this is going to be okay, it’s going to work out fine.’ Just keep believing, and if you do keep believing, I think it’s going to happen.” Since then, the Presleys have become organ donor advocates, and have been a part of mul-

tiple groups and organizations including The Kidney Foundation and The Gift of Life. In December, they were also among 150 Nepean-Carleton residents to win an Inspiration Award at MPP Lisa MacLeod’s Inspiration Awards Ceremony, a special event MacLeod held for the Canada 150 celebrations. When news broke that 21-year-old Logan Boulet, one of the 16 people who died in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash in Saskatchewan, donated all his organs after his death, David and Lyn took to social media to encourage others to do the same. “It’s not right that we bury or burn usable organs that you can live long with and Logan Poulin was the prime example,” said Lyn. “Six people live on because of Logan’s decision, and the recipients’ families now get to celebrate.” Poulin’s godfather, Neil Langevin said in a Facebook post, “Logan had made it known, and made it very clear to his family, that he had signed his organ donor card when he turned 21 just a few weeks ago.” Lyn says that there are more than 15,000 people in the province of On-

tario that are waiting for an organ transplant, and the waiting list is over five years. Since the Humboldt bus crash, there has been an increase in people across the country putting their names on the registry list.

For anyone who is waiting for an organ transplant, David has one piece of advice. “I tell people not to consult Doctor Google because I started doing that myself,” said David. He said all that came up was

the lists of complications, and what could happen. “Consult your own doctor and ask him anything you want.” Anyone who is interested in becoming an organ donor can visit beadonor. ca.

The MessengerOPINION Is Doug Ford that uninformed, or does he think we have no idea?

The Editor, I have to admit that the comments attributed to Ontario PC candidate for Nepean, Lisa MacLeod, which appeared in the last edition of the Manotick Messenger, have suddenly started to seem rather humourous! MacLeod had been describing the comparative sizes of crowds at both Liberal and PC rallies, and she had informed The Messenger that, “Ford’s crowd size was much bigger.” Her words seem laughable now, given the recent revelation that at the June 7 debate professional ac-

tors were hired to portray Doug Ford supporters for the TV cameras. Apparently crowd sizes at PC rallies are not a reflection of popular support, but rather are more an indicator of how many actors the party has under contract at a given time. What was very much less humourous was the chilling statement attributed to Doug Ford, in which he announced his intention to, “fire the CEO of Hydro One.” I don’t know if Mr. Ford is really this uninformed, or if it was merely an attempt by him to appeal to

a base that he’s convinced has no idea how things work. First of all, the CEO of Hydro One doesn’t decide how much to charge for Hydro or its delivery— that decision is made by the official government regulator, known as the Ontario Energy Board. The OEB is your typical government agency, complete with a giant, bloated bureaucracy boasting executive compensation in the multi-millions—all of which comes directly from the taxpayers of Ontario. Ironically, Doug Ford is more than happy to keep them all on the

Former city councillor and deputy mayor says thanks to local Legion branches The Editor, I would like to take this opportunity to commend and thank the members of the Barrhaven and Manotick Royal Canadian Legion branches. Through their leadership and generosity, two Vimy Oak trees were planted in the shadows of the spans of the Vimy Memorial Bridge. These trees are direct descendants of oak acorns

that were transported to Canada from the scarred and bloody battle fields of Vimy Ridge in 1917. We can thank Canadian soldier Lt. Leslie H. Miller who sent home the acorns and planted them on his farm in a peaceful setting he called Vimy Oaks. Lt. Miller’s legacy lives on today through these Oak trees and reminds us of our solemn duty to reflect on the service and sacri-

fice of Vimy. The Vimy Memorial bridge is important in our daily lives for transportation and recreation. The structure however serves a higher purpose of commemoration. The bridge site is the largest tribute in Canada to the soldiers of Vimy thanks to those who have pledged to never forget. Steve Desroches

Manotick Classic Boat Club promotes appreciation of antique and classic boats THis week,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

International Antique and Classic Boat Show hosted this August by the village of Westport. MCBC has an on-line presence and offers advice from enthusiastic members. Contacts and many resources are available at the Club’s website www. manotickclassicboatclub. ca It is fitting that the owners of old boats choose to congregate on our local (UNESCO) World Heritage site, the Rideau Canal, to show off their treasures

to the public. It is also fitting that two of the Club’s founders - Syd Herwig and Jimmy Potter - will be honoured with chairs at the planned Mahogany Harbour landing. Both these men were great friends of mine - Syd and I were Boy Scout leaders at the same time - Jim and I lived across the street from each other many years ago. I never owned a boat but have appreciated the Mahogany Harbour area for a long time! There are now 108 paying family memberships. They grow greyer and older with fewer new young members willing to sign up for responsibilities. They missed one “annual” boat show....thus that change.

lution Cuba! And as far as the CEO of Hydro One is concerned, what, exactly, has he done wrong? Given that Hydro One is now in the private sector, the CEO’s job is to maximize dividends to shareholders, not provide cheap electricity to consumers. All reports seem to indicate that he’s currently meeting all of his corporate obligations, and he’s only receiving that six million dollar annual salary because the board of directors has determined that it is appropriate. Considering that T:5.063” Canada’s top 100 CEOs

are now each receiving an average of $14 million per annum, Hydro One’s CEO is actually at the low end. His replacement may well cost even more! Anyway, I salute Comrade Ford in his quest to rein in these greedy corporate capitalists, but why stop at Hydro? Ontarians are also being ripped off by insatiable Telecoms, greedy banks and rapacious oil companies. Could Mr. Ford look into firing their CEOs as well? Andy Braid, Kars ON

Founded in 1975, the Manotick Classic Boat Club (MCBC) promotes the appreciation of historic, antique and classic boats. Membership includes people from Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec who share a common interest in the preservation and the enjoyment of these fine craft. Vessels come in all shapes and sizes including: wooden canoes, sailboats, runabouts, cruisers, trawlers, race boats and even some of classic fibreglass. You don’t have to own a boat to become a member - just have an interest and passion for these beautiful watercraft! The Club promotes a number of local boating and social events including the Ottawa

public payroll, since it’s the private sector guy that he wants to see gone. But since when did the Ontario PC party start to think that it’s appropriate that the government should decide who the CEO of a private, forprofit, publicly-traded company (of which the province is a minority shareholder) should be? Shouldn’t that decision be entirely up to the shareholders? Isn’t that how it works in a capitalist system? What Doug Ford is proposing sounds more like something one would hear in post-revo-

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Musician and ROSSS volunteer still going strong after 80 years in Germany and never returned.

By Deborah Luce One of my earliest memories as a 3-year old child was dialing up Dad on my Fisher Price phone, “Hello Daddy, are you in Autralia? Are you coming home soon?” My ability to pronounce the letter “s” and my understanding of the global phone system were typical of any 3-year old. When daddy didn’t reply, my mum explained that Australia was a bit far (from our home in Jersey, Channel Isles), so perhaps he could not hear well, but daddy would call us when he was closer. My father, Martin Luce, was born on the Channel Island of Jersey (the home of the Jersey cow), on May 21, 1938. The eldest of four siblings, he grew up on a picturesque farm called Appledale, where his family grew vegetables and raised pigs and Jersey cows, of course! Soon after he was born, the Second World War broke out. Jersey was occupied by the Germans from July 1, 1940 until May 9, 1945. Times were tough during those years. Many islanders went without basic necessities including food. Some perished and several islanders were sent to concentration camps

From farm to sea and across the pond

At sixteen years of age, Martin went to Naval College in England. Upon graduation, he joined the British Merchant Marines. He rose through the ranks quickly. He was soon a first mate navigating the waters around Africa and Australia, picking up commercial goods to bring back to England. Mum and I missed Dad during the many months he spent at sea. At age 4, when I still didn’t have a sibling, Dad decided to find another job that would keep him closer to home. That job ended up being in Canada! We crossed “the pond” in 1966 and made our home in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Martin spent 10 years in the marine transport section of the Federal Ministry of Transport in Halifax. Our family grew, and I gained a brother and two sisters.

A new job in a new city

In 1976, Ottawa called, and Martin said yes to a position at the headquarters of the Ministry of Transport, in the Deputy Minister’s office. Subsequently, from 1979 to 1998, Martin ran the Canarctic Ship-

ping Company as its president, albeit this time from an office on Metcalfe Street and not at the helm of the ship. He still travelled a great deal from the Arctic to Scandinavia and Europe, arranging contracts to ship oil and minerals across the Atlantic.

Retirement: a time to slow down?

In 1998, Martin “retired” from working 9 to 5, but it was soon apparent that retirement would be more active than the days in the office! In that same year, he joined Rideau Township Community Services as a volunteer delivering Meals on Wheels. In 2001, Martin was elected to the Board of Directors and served as president. In 2008, Martin was awarded the prestigious United Way, Ottawa Community Builder Award for his volunteer services to the community. In 2011, Martin led the merger of Rideau Community Support Services and Osgoode Home Support Program to form Rural Ottawa South Support Services and negotiated the incorporation of rural Goulbourne into ROSSS. He retired from his position as chair of ROSSS in 2017 – his second retirement!

Martin Luce received a community builders award from the United Way of Ottawa last year.

Sharing music and the love of brass

Martin learned to play the trombone. He and Kazimier Samujlo founded the Manotick Brass Ensemble in 2003. Fifteen years and four CDs later, the Manotick Brass Ensemble (MBE) has entertained audiences across the Ottawa Valley, and internationally, from Cuba to Jersey, Ireland, Newfoundland, and a few places in between! The MBE plays more than 60 non-profit or fund raising concerts a year in senior centres, churches and at com-

munity events. They also teach the love of playing brass in schools around the region. The Manotick Musicale, which Martin instigated, has been running for 13 years and has raised more than $35,000 for ROSSS. Martin has also been a long-time worshiper and a part of the choir at Knox Presbyterian Church in Manotick.

Phone still ringing from down under

Dad and Mum now travel to Australia together sometimes to

visit their youngest child, Suzanne, who has now made that country her home. Now Sue calls Dad from Australia; no dialing on Fisher Price, but via Skype! The world has changed a bit. My siblings and I all hope we have the same good health and energy that Dad does when we are 80 years old. He has taught us by example that staying active keeps you young! Happy Birthday Dad! You are an inspiration! Love your children, Debbie, Chris, Janine and Suzanne.

By Brian Cromie On June 1ST to 3rd Manotick celebrates Moss Kent Dickinson and the village he built around his 1860 Rideau River gristmill. Today, we cherish that history and our connections to the past. Two years after Dickinson Days began in 1976, the Kinsmen Club adopted it as their first community project. In the 1990’s, the Manotick Kiwanis added their support, and in the last 10 years, has hosted the annual event, aided by a number of Kinsmen who have become Kiwanis members. But the Kiwanis Club relies

on more than its 65 members; it relies on support from the Manotick BIA under Donna Smith, Watson’s Mill, ROSSS and YOMA, plus key business partners like Leimark Development Ltd., Royal LePage Realty, and Manotick Place, to make such a major event possible. Dickinson Days is truly a unique celebration by the community, for the community. The weekend includes a village parade on Friday evening, a children’s show and spectacular fireworks at Centennial Park. Saturday starts early with a pancake breakfast put on by former Kinsmen

members in the big tent opposite the Mill. This year, these Kinsmen celebrate 40 years of continuous service to our community. Over 100 vendors set up booths throughout the historic quarter to offer unique gifts and services. A Kid’s Catch and Release fishing derby attracts excited young anglers to the dam. On stage, the Manotick Brass, Denise Smith and Piqué Dance Studios, and Cooligan Martial Arts among others perform throughout the day. Knox Church and M&M offer BBQ and Yves Houle’s carnival and bouncy castles delight kids of all ages.

Saturday night in the tent, ROSSS/YOMA will host a concert by the Ottawa band Mystic Circle. This fundraiser is fast becoming a tradition of modern Dickinson Days. On Sunday, the Kiwanis Club will hold a BBQ luncheon in the tent in support of Doors Open Ottawa, as both the Mill and Dickinson House welcome visitors who come to learn about village life in 19th century Ontario. Please come and enjoy the festivities of Dickinson Days, celebrating our heritage and wonderful community.

DINING OUT g Featurin Fun Family Night Out

Tips for a fun family night out In its 2016 National Dining Survey, Zagat found that the average person dines out 4.5 times per week. That figure may seem high to some, especially parents with young children at home. While parents of young children may not dine out as often as the average person, there are ways for families to plan fun nights out on the town, no matter how young their kids might be. · Find family-friendly restaurants. The establishments where families choose to do their dining can make all the difference. Trendy hotspots or upscale restaurants may not be great choices for family nights out. Such establishments may be too expensive or fail to offer kid-friendly fare, and parents of especially young children may feel uncomfortable if their tots begin to cry in the middle of dinner. When choosing a restaurant for a family night out, parents should look for a

spot that’s naturally more noisy so a crying baby or excited child won’t make moms and dads or other diners uncomfortable. Diners or chain restaurants tend to offer kids’ menus in addition to plenty of dishes that kids will readily consume. · Choose the right time. Dining out at night can be difficult for families, as kids might be growing tired. Instead of a night out on the town, book a mid- to late-afternoon out. Restaurants tend to be less busy during these times of day, and parents can relax and enjoy the company of their children while still getting out of the house for a family meal together. · Bring along some entertainment. Some kidfriendly restaurants may provide crayons and placemats that kids can use to create their own artistic masterpieces. But parents should bring backup entertainment just in case. Pack some

crayons and coloring books or bring along a book to read to your children while you wait for your meal to be delivered. Bring along a couple of toys to keep especially young children occupied as well. · Practice your night out. Parents of young children who have yet to try dining out as a family can make a few practice runs at home. Choose a night at home to teach kids how to behave at restaurants. If kids tend to squirm a lot or take long periods of time to eat meals at home, explain to them that such behavior is unacceptable at restaurants, encouraging them to sit still and focus on eating their meals during your practice run. Nights out on the town as a family may make parents of young children nervous or hesitant. But there are a handful of ways to make sure such excursions are fun for kids and parents alike.

Chicks in the ‘Tick event raises $30k for Manotick Mahogany dock project

The wind may have been howling outside the Manotick Arena on Friday, May 4, but more than 500 women were celebrating all that women do to build community, inside the freshly re-modeled local recreation facility. Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation in collaboration with the Manotick Firemen, Manotick BIA, and Kiwanis Club of Manotick, launched the second annual ‘Ladies Night Out’ as a fundraiser for the Mahogany Dock Project. It takes a team to transform ‘an arena’ and organize a fun evening and full house, with good food, friends, and fellowship. A heartfelt thanks goes to the following: Master of Ceremonies: Teri Loretto, CBC (Weather person and interim InTown and Out Host Caterer: Dennis Burn, Leatherworks Coordinating Team: Viv Mitchell, Tracy Gates, Sue Hale, Anne-Marie Hodgins, Donna Smith, Margot Belanger, Anne Robinson Decorating Team: Laurie McCabe, Julie Earle, Sue Kennedy, Joanne Mack, Darlene Donnelly, Anne Robinson Auction Team: Sue Hale, Alexa Ives, Susan Goodwin, Donna Smith Operations & Set-Up Team: Viv Mitchell, Brenda/Paul and David Buchanan, Bob, Olga & Dawn Simpson; Mike O’Neil & ‘D’ Club (Bill McCarthy, Pat O’Leary, Hajo Versteeg, Concrete Mike); Grace Thrasher, Don and Susan Goodwin, Ron & Marnie Robinson and the Decorating & Auction Teams. Bar Team: Carmen Grandinetti with help from Manotick’s Finest – the Manotick Volunteer

Firemen Additional Helpers: Sheila Stewart, Manotick OfficePro, Brock Thom, Rick Belanger, Gerald Reasbeck, Noel Norenius, Mike Donaldson, Charles Keita, Raquel Theberge Live Auctioneer: Mauler from Hot 89.9 Thank you to the three Chic Time Event Sponsors – V!VA Retirement Home, Manotick Windows and Doors, and Splash Pools. Thanks also to more than 70 generous individuals and businesses that donated to the Silent and Live Auctions. The items varied from ‘soapstone carving classes’ to ‘golf games’ to ‘astrology readings’…. and competitively bid on by the participants. The winner of the ‘Super Dock’ ticket, that has first dibs on one Silent

Auction item, was Anne Steinberg. She had met earlier that week with a landscape company and indicated that she didn’t want a built fire pit, she wanted a mobile one and Manotick Home Hardware’s generous donation was just the ticket she selected. But the happiest of the evening was possibly Joanne Mangione; she won $1,200 with her 50/50 ticket and promptly increased her bid on a silk scarf and was planning to take her girlfriends to lunch at the Black Dog. Councillor Scott Moffatt and MCPRA President Anne Robinson, thanked the major Mahogany Donors including, the Kiwanis Club of Manotick, the City of Ottawa, Manotick BIA, Minto Inc, D & G

Landscaping, EQ Homes (The Regional Group), Joan Bowler and Family, Splash Pools, Manotick Classic Boat Club, Jon and Joanne Mack, AOV Ontario Land Surveyors/ PatersonGroup Consulting Engineers/ and Doug Fountain, Landscape Architecture & Urban Design. Construction for the Mahogany Dock Project will commence this summer. The final tally for Chic Time 2018 is still being calculated but organizers are confident that Friday’s event exceeded its 2018 fundraising target of $30,000. It seems that when ‘Chicks in the ‘Tick’ come together, they can get things done and have fun doing it!

Municipal drains and stormwater are two entirely unrelated topics RIDEAUGOULBOURN

WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

Municipal drains are identified by municipal bylaw that adopts an engineer’s report. These reports contain plans, profiles and specifications defining the location, size and depth of the drain, and how costs are shared among property owners. Most municipal drains are either ditches or closed systems, such as pipes or tiles buried in the ground. They can also include structures such as dykes or berms, pumping stations, buffer strips, grassed waterways, storm water detention ponds, culverts and bridges. Some creeks and small rivers are now considered to be municipal drains. Municipal drains are primarily located in rural agricultural areas.” The Cranberry Creek Municipal Drain was es-

Gibbon’s Painting & Decorating

tablished in 1895. The Drainage Act sets out the process for establishing a municipal drain. It is done so through a petition by those seeking improved drainage. If you are a regular reader of this column, you will have read about the Engineer’s Report that pertains to this specific drain calling for a replacement of the former pump and dyke system. Since a municipal drain is a private system established by property owners, the costs of the work on Cranberry Creek gets attributed back to the property owners within the watershed of the drain. It is important to note that, since the Cranberry Creek is already an established drain, a petition is not required for maintenance, as per Section 78 of the Act. Some have asked whether property owners who pay for a municipal drain also pay the stormwater fee. They do. Essentially, it would be no different if you lived in a private community on private roads. Your property

taxes would still pay for roads. The stormwater fee pays for roadside ditches, cross culverts and other City-owned drainage infrastructure. Whether a municipal drain was present or not, the need for stormwater infrastructure still exists. A municipal drain is not City-owned. It is established at the request of property owners, not the municipality, therefore the costs are not assessed to the taxpayer at large. Some have referred to this as “double dipping.” It is not. The municipality provides a drainage network required for draining roads. Municipal drains are drainage ditches that exist above and beyond roadside ditches. While there are many throughout the City, they are not everywhere and, thus, not every resident pays into one. In some cases, though, municipal drains overlap with roadside ditches. That is not the norm, however. If you happen to have any questions relating to municipal drains, please do not hesitate to contact

The Big Give

June 2nd is the date of the 2018 Big Give. Every year, churches across the country use this day to bless their neighbourhoods through a unified day of giving. It is not a garage sale. They are not raising money. Everything is free. It is their way of helping those in need. This year, Manotick’s newest church, the Manotick Community Church, will be taking part for the third time. On the Saturday of Dickinson Days, drop by 5492 South River Drive, former Manotick Medical Centre, between 8:00am and 1:00pm. They will also have free muffins and coffee in the morning and free hot dogs at lunch. Most importantly, they will have a parking lot FULL of free stuff to choose from. The MCC is also looking for donations and volunteers for this big day. Anything from books to appliances will be accepted. Please contact rosemary@ celtic.ca should you wish to help.

me. On the City’s geoOttawa mapping tool, you can also locate all municipal drains within the City of Ottawa boundaries. It could be helpful for residents wishing to know if a municipal drain exists in their area.


There has been a lot of discussion surrounding municipal drains lately due to the proposed maintenance and upgrades to the Cranberry Creek Municipal Drain. With municipal drains being discussed, often the subject of the stormwater fee comes up as well. I would just like to take a moment and explain why the two are not entirely related. Municipal Drains are established under the Provincial Drainage Act. The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Rural Affairs has oversight for this piece of legislation. Through their website, they offer the following definition: “A municipal drain is a system to move water. It is created pursuant to a bylaw passed by the local municipality. The municipality is responsible for the construction of the drainage system and future maintenance and repair. Costs may be recovered from the property owners in the watershed of the drain.

Recent strong winds created a major calamity for the Richmond 200 Organizing Committee, but thankfully, the call for help was answered by two local volunteers, Richard Waterfall and Rick Lefebvre. They came with their tools and general know how to help Tino Bevacqua resurrect the damaged platform.

Response on Osgoode to Manotick Pathway

The City has responded to the MVCA request for consideration of a safer option for this pathway along Mitch Owens. The MVCA’s view is that a paved shoulder with rumble strip along Mitch Owens Drive between St. Mark High School and River Road is not a safe option, given the 80 Km/h speed limit and the number of trucks who use this route. The City has responded that they only have sufficient land along that stretch of Mitch Owens for paved shoulders. They would need an additional 13 metres in width in order to create a separated Multi-Use Pathway and the City does not have access to lands that would allow that option. Therefore, the City offering the paved shoulder option as a compromise solution. Thank you to those who wrote to the City in favour of a better option.
