Moffatt holds off Brown to win third term at Council

Scott Moffatt has retained his seat as City of Ottawa Councillor for Ward 21 Rideau Goulbourn. Moffatt defeated his former employee, David Brown, 5,080 to 4,023 at the polls in the Oct. 22 municipal election. The campaign was one of the more controversial ones in the city. Brown was an assistant in Moffatt’s office and decided to run against his boss. While many of the campaigns throughout the city became ugly and nasty, Moffatt said he wanted to keep his campaign clean. “I never make it about my opponent,” Moffatt said. “That’s not what an election campaign should be. I campaign on what I stand for, and the issues.” Moffatt said that while campaigning, he heard about a number of issues from constituents. The main issues were similar to the issues in other rural wards – infrastructure and traffic. He said another issue that came up with some people surprised him. “A few people told me that I was not visible in the community and that they were unaware of what was going on,” Moffatt said. “I am always at events in the community, but as far as square mileage goes, this is a huge ward. I try to get to as many things as I can, and I am at a lot of events. We have also had a lot of public meetings and town forums. But if the people stay at home don’t come out

to them, I’m not sure how I can get any face time with them.” Moffatt also writes his regular column in the Manotick Messenger, which goes out to almost every home in the ward. Because of the dynamics of the Rideau-Goulbourn election, many were paying attention to it. Moffatt said the race was healthy for the ward and its voters. The competition forces the candidates to talk to people and get a thorough understanding of the issues at hand. “I knew going in that my core support would be about 5,000 votes,” Moffatt said. “For David, his challenge would be to bring neutral voters to his side and to get more people out to vote. What he went through was very similar to what I went through the first time I ran against (former councillor) Glenn Brooks.” Moffatt also said he was looking forward to seeing what the new council would look like at city hall when the new term begins.

Scott Moffatt speaks at a public meeting in Manotick last year.

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT City holding surveys to get input on potential retail cannabis stores

tWelcome back to our bi-weekly Rideau-Goulbourn column following the 60-day election blackout period. Over the coming weeks and months, we will want to connect with residents across the ward. As we did in January 2015, we will organize a series of town hall meetings in various communities to discuss priorities for the upcoming term of Council. We are also going to look at ways of expanding our communication efforts. In eight years, we have always strived to improve and keep finding ways to serve you better. That will not change. And now for something completely different….

From October 25th to November 7th, residents will be able to provide input on this issue in two ways: • By online survey on Ottawa.ca or by filling out paper copies of the survey available at the City’s client service centres, and • Through a randomized telephone survey being conducted by Ekos Research Associates on behalf of the City.

Ash Tree Replacement Pilot Program

The City of Ottawa has lost thousands of ash trees due to the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). This invasive beetle, native to Asia was first detected in North America in 2002. Since its arrival, it has killed tens of millions of ash trees and continues to spread, causing considerable economic and ecological damage. As a result, many private property owners are left with dead or dying ash trees. To help address this, South Nation Conservation (SNC) has partnered with the City of Ottawa, to pilot a cost-sharing ‘Ash Tree Replacement Program’. The program is available

to property owners with affected ash tree(s) located in the City. Eligible applicants agree to use a forestry professional to confirm and remove EAB infected ash trees and to replace all removed trees with suitable native trees. Managed similar to the Ottawa Rural Clean Water Program with the partner Conservation Authorities, the Ash Tree Replacement Program will also be managed and administered by SNC. Funding support has been provided by the City of Ottawa. Interested applicants are encouraged to visit our program website at nation.on.ca/eab or to contact SNC for eligibility details. If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at Scott.Moffatt@ ottawa.ca or contact me by phone at 613-580-2491.

Lynn Scott gets an ‘eight-peat’ as public school board trustee

For the eighth consecutive term, Lynn Scott will be the local school board trustee. Scott retained her seat as the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board trustee for Zone 1, which includes the city wards of West Carleton-March, Stittsville and Rideau-Goulbourn. Scott had 64.8 per cent of the vote with 11,540 votes. Jon Flemming was second with 3,793; Ken Lumsden was third with 1,048; Brandon Rabideau was fourth with 812; and Gurprit Kindra was fifth with 604. Scott said that one of the main topics at doorsteps while she was campaigning was the proposed change to the sec ed. curriculum. “A lot of people commented to me that they don’t want to go back to the old curriculum,” Scott said. “It seemed to be a major topic of concern with a lot of families during the campaign.” Scott campaigned as a strong proponent of individualized education, better strategic planning, fiscal accountability and good governance. She said during the campaign that a strong board with a diversity of experience and knowledge will

be needed to address challenges and changes over the next four years, especially with a new government at Queen’s Park. “I’ve always been able to have a good relationship with the Progressive Conservative MPPs representing the area,” she said. “We need to work together to provide the best possible education to all students, regardless of their individual needs.” One of the dynamics that will change in the school board zone is a new Stittsville high school that has been approved. The new school will cause a shift in boundaries and will help alleviate present and future crowding issues at South Carleton High School. “There’s still a lot of work to be done, including the complex task of setting an attendance boundary for the new school.” Scott said. “We’ll need to optimize the use of every dollar to create a design with the flexibility to serve evolving learning needs over at least the next 50 years. A new high school in Riverside South is also a priority for us.” Land has been designated for a public high school at Earl Armstrong and Lime-

bank. Riverside South has a Catholic high school, but public board students are bussed to various schools, including South Carleton. Scott also said that some of the biggest challenges facing the board include working to improve student success in the classroom, particularly in math. Addressing dwindling enrolment in the regular English program, finding better ways to deal with student behavior issues, and making advisory committees and consultation processes more effective are on her list. Another concern of hers is that the current contract with the teachers’ union expires in 2019. “The funding formula needs to be re-examined, and another round of collective bargaining will begin in 2019,” Scott said. She added that while the

Wynne Government solved the last work-to-rule situation by giving in to teachers’ demands, she does not know what to expect from the province this time around. Scott anticipates a new strategic plan, with a new Director of Education, that will embrace new data to support equity and diversity, but she cautions that the board must not forget that behind every number, behind every label, there’s a unique student with a unique family and unique needs. “As a trustee, my most rewarding moments have come when a parent or student approaches me at an event to say that something I’ve said or done has made a positive difference in a child’s life,” she says. “With every policy, every budget decision, I have to think of the impact on students.”

One Hundredth Anniversary of the end of World War 1 - November 11, 1918 The military history of Canada during World War I began on August 4, 1914, when Britain entered the First World War (1914–1918) by declaring war on Germany. The British declaration of war automatically brought Canada into the war, because of Canada’s legal status as subservient to Britain.[1] However, the Canadian government had the freedom to determine the country’s level of involvement in the war. On August 5, 1914, the Governor General declared a war between Canada and Germany. The Militia was not mobilized and instead an independent Canadian Expeditionary Force was raised. Canadians of British

descent, the majority, gave widespread support arguing that Canadians had a duty to fight on behalf of their Motherland. Indeed, Sir Wilfred Laurier, although French-Canadian, spoke for the majority of English-Canadians when he proclaimed: “It is our duty to let Great Britain know and to let the friends and foes of Great Britain know that there is in Canada but one mind and one heart and that all Canadians are behind the

Mother Country.” Prime Minister Robert Borden offered assistance to Great Britain, which was quickly accepted. Canada’s sacrifices and contributions to the war changed its history and enabled it to become more independent, For the first time in its history, Canadian forces fought as a distinct unit, first under a British commander and then under a Canadianborn commander. The highpoints of Canadian military achievement during the First World War came during the Somme, Vimy, and Passchendaele battles and what later became known as “Canada’s Hundred Days”. Canada’s total casualties stood at the end of the war at 67,000

killed and 173,000 wounded, out of an expeditionary force of 620,000 people mobilized and 39% of mobilized were casualties. Try and attend a November 11th Remembrance Day ceremony; it’s important that you do; encourage the young people to attend and take the children; they need to know the significance of November 11th. As for me, I’m happy to be a Canadian whose forces saved freedom for me to be a kid and run and play, a long time ago for some of us but allows me to see another happy day!

A special find for Watson’s Mill Book Store volunteer

A great find at the Watson’s Mill Used Book Store was on a day that I volunteer. I was there talking to a lady that looks after the heritage books. She pulled out this little book and I happened to glance at the old book, 1842 Bailey’s Magazine, which was “a Christmas and New Year’s Present” for young people. Wow, I could not believe my eyes. My grandfather’s name, R.C. Sills, Canada, was written in beautiful black script ink. On the opposite page was the name of Edward Talbot Sills, Bank of Montreal, Bank Street Branch, Ottawa, Ontario. My grandfather’s family lived above the Bank of Montreal at Bank and Somerset. Richard Charles Sills was a bank messenger. I could not believe my lucky day to find this treasure and bring my grandfather into my life again. I will have this lovely book to cherish and pass onto

The MessengerNEWS Carol Anne Meehan unseats incumbent Qaqish in Gloucester-South Nepean By Charlie Senack Carol Anne Meehan will have an active role in the community again, yet this time as a member of city council. The former co-anchor of CTV Ottawa News at Six was elected in Ward 22, Gloucester-South Nepean with 42.5 per cent of the vote, beating incumbent Michael Qaqish with 38.7 per cent. She put her name on the ballot on July 27 — just hours before the nomination period closed; joining other candidates who also ran including Zaff Ansari, Harpreet Singh, and Irene Mei. During her campaign party at Broadway’s Bar and Grill in Riverside South on Monday (October 22), Meehan thanked the community for giving her their trust and support, and thanked her long list of campaign volunteers. “Two months ago, before I decided to run, I would never have envisioned that I’d be here, surrounded by so many friends, supporters and people who just believed in me,” Meehan said while holding

back tears. “I’m just so overwhelmed and I’m humbled that the people of this ward have chosen me, they have trusted me with their future.” The mother of Elena, 14, and Evan, 19, thanked her two kids for supporting her during this journey. While sitting at the council table may be different than sitting at the anchor desk, Meehan said she is ready for the job. Meehan was the face of the six o’clock news on CTV Ottawa before being abruptly let go from the station in November 2017, after 27 years at the anchor desk. She then joined the 1310 News team for about a year and a half, hosting her own show, before deciding to retire from the journalism world. The former journalist said her number one priority is with the traffic congestion in the ward. Meehan says she has experienced it herself, and heard the concerns at almost every door she knocked on. She would like to see roads widened, and would like to see a more reliable and user friendly bus service.

Carol Anne Meehan speaks to CTV reporter Matt Skube at Broadway Bar and Grill in Riverside South after her Ward 22 victory on Monday, October 22. The former CTV anchor defeated incumbent Michael Qaqish in a close race. Mike Carroccetto photos “Quite frankly, people out here can’t get up any earlier to get to work on time,” Meehan said. “They can’t bus anywhere because the busses sit in the traffic along with all the motorists. We are discour-

aging people from getting on a bus (and) we have to change that now. It’s going to be a slow process, but there is a lot of measures that I’m going to implement to decrease the lines of cars on the road.”

This election saw seven new councillors elected to city hall — with three incumbents loosing. Meehan says councillors are not only elected to represent their ward, but also the city. While each councillor will have different interests for their specific ward, she is hopeful debates and open discussion will happen at the council table. “We all have priorities for our ward, but quite frankly it’s making the city a better place,” the candidate elect said. “It’s going to be some give and take, but you have

to be a team player and I’m ready to be a team player. With all the new faces around council, I think it’s going to be exciting (and) it’s going to be challenging of course, but I think I’m up for that.” Meehan will be one of seven females at the council table, and believes many of them will be like minded people. The election this year saw 42 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballot. That number is up from only 40 per cent in 2014, but down from the 44 per cent that voted in 2010.

Trip to Senators game completes bucket list for pulmonary fibrosis sufferer Special

to the


Barb Houlahan sat in her seat at the Ottawa Senators game against the Dallas Stars and gave Aramark’s Carol Harper, the Director of Premium Services at Canadian Tire Centre, a big hug. “My bucket list is now complete,” Houlahan told her. “I’ve now done everything I have ever wanted to do.” Manotick Messenger editor Jeff Morris interviewed Houlahan in the summer for a story on the jewellery that she and her friend, stage four cancer patient Diane Edwards, were making at Prince of Wales Manor. The jewellery is to raise money and

awareness for pulmonary fibrosis research. Houlahan, who has deep roots in South Carleton as she grew up as a Brophy, explained in the interview that she was the unofficial president of the Prince of Wales Manor Ottawa Senators fan club. She and her friends wear their Sens gear for the games and watch them on the big screen in the home’s rec lounge. At one point, she even ran a web page for her friends about the Sens and when the upcoming games were. “I never miss a game,” she said. “We have our own little Prince of Wales Red fan club here at Prince of Wales Manor, and we all cheer on our boys. I love the Senators. It really gives

us something to do and something to look forward to every winter. The Senators games bring us all together as a group.” Houlahan has about 30 per cent of her lung capacity. She suffers from the same ailment that forced Barrhaven organ donor advocate Helene Campbell to get a double lung transplant. She knows that, in her 80th year, a double lung transplant is not an option, and that her condition is terminal. “I had health problems when I was young, and I was told I would never have children and I would never be able to be a nurse,” she said. “I proved them wrong on both counts.” Houlahan said she had

done everything in life she had ever wanted to do except for one thing. She told Morris that she had never been to a Senators game. Her last bucket list wish was to go to a game with her friend, Diane. Morris contacted Harper, as well as Aaron Robinson of the Ottawa Senators and Laurie Davidson of the Ottawa Senators Alumni. In a joint effort between the Barrhaven Independent, the Senators, the Senators Alumni and Aramark, Houlahan, Edwards and two of their friends were guests in the Sens Alumni

Suite for the game between the Senators and the Dallas Stars. They shared a bottle of white wine, enjoyed complimentary snacks and were treated like celebrities by Aramark and Senators staff. She was given a bouquet of red and white roses – in Sens colours – from the Messenger, presented to her by Aramark corporate suite hostess Caroline Chescoe. They were even visited by Lucky, the mascot for rescue dogs in Ottawa, for some cuddles. “It was everything I dreamed it would be,” said Houlahan. “I have wanted

to go to a game for years, but I have never had the chance to. The people that made this happen for me – they are all angels. I will never forget this night.” It was questionable for a while if Houlahan would be able to make it to the arena to fulfil her bucket list dream. She was in bed for a week prior to the game, and her health was failing. She made it out of bed and got ready for the game, and she and her friends were delivered to and from the game by OC ParaTranspo.

senators continues from page 10 “Nothing was going to stop me from going to this hockey game,” she said. “It was so exciting! Everything was so much better than I thought it was going to be, and the Senators won!” Morris acted as their host for the evening. “They were rowdy,” he said. “They were passionate fans and they loved every second of the experience. Being in a suite was perfect for them because, with oxygen and the other needs they had, general seating might not have been an option. It’s wonderful that we were all able to come together and provide this experience for them. They smiled the entire time they were here.” Houlahan takes each day as it comes. She takes having a fatal disease in stride and chooses to celebrate her life each day rather than live in fear. “A long time ago they said I had five months to live,” she said. “I’m still here. For a few years now, I have been given these

extra days and months and I wasn’t supposed to be here. It really makes you appreciate that every day is a gift.” Houlahan said she will be thinking of the experience all season while she watches her favourite team. “You know, they won when we are here, so we are good luck,” she said.

Houlahan was joined by three of her closest friends at the Oct. 15 Ottawa Senators game.

Barb Houlahan, pictured with Manotick Messenger editor Jeff Morris in the Sens Alumni Suite, attended her first ever Ottawa Senators game Mon., Oct. 15. It was the last item on the bucket list for Houlahan, who is terminally ill with pulmonary fibrosis.

Fresh Local

In Flanders Fields In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

‘In Flander’s Fields’ was written by a Canadian, John McCrae, a doctor and teacher who served in both the South African War and the First World War. He died from pneumonia on January 28, 1918.

Porter shines for Mac South Carleton High School graduate Danny Porter just completed his OUA football season with the McMaster Marauders, as their comeback bid fell short in a 20-15 loss to the team his father, Doug, played for, the Carleton Ravens at Carleton’s MNP Park. Porter grew up playing in the Nepean Redskins and Nepean Eagles football program, where Doug also served as a coach. After registering 10.5 tackles during the regular season, Porter, a linebacker who excels on special teams, made three tackles in the loss at Carleton. Porter faced former Redskins and Eagles teammate Phil Iloki in Saturday’s game. Mike Carroccetto photo

95-home subdivision proposed for First Line Road at Carsonby Road An application for a zoning amendment that would allow the development of a 95 unit single detached residential development at 6067 First Line Road has been submitted to the City. The subdivision would include a large amount of park land and a woodlot in addition to the 95 dwellings. The land parcel currently includes farmland and a discontinued quarry lot. It is bordered by Carsonby Road on the north and Rideau View Golf Club on the east. This development was originally proposed prior to the amalgamation of Rideau Township with the City of Ottawa for 76 units on estate lots. A public meeting on the proposal was held in 2003. A draft subdivision plan was approved in 2008 with a number of conditions. Earlier this year, the City gave its approval of a revised draft plan of subdivision. The MVCA is looking at how the development will be serviced, the current lot sizes and how the City and developer plan to address the anticipated increase in traffic along First Line, among other questions. The City is looking for comments on the proposal by November 21. Information on the application can be found at https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans/appDetails.jsf?lang=en&appId=__ A8OK1R Questions or comments can be submitted to: Seana.Turkington@ottawa.ca

Heritage Building Review The City of Ottawa Heritage Services will be visiting Manotick on November 27 as part of a city-wide survey and evaluation of all built structures in order to determine which resources contribute to Ottawa’s cultural heritage. Known as the Heritage Inventory Project, its goal is to update the existing Heritage Registry and create a digital map-based inventory of Ottawa’s heritage structures. Being listed on the Heritage Registry does not mean that a building is considered a heritage site. However, if an owner of a building listed on the Registry wishes to demol-


VOICE by Grace Thrasher, President, Manotick Village and Community Association (MVCA)

ish the building, it must provide the City with 60 days’ notice. This allows the City enough time to negotiate with the owner to save the building or to propose its designation, if warranted. There are currently 12 individually designated properties in Manotick that are among the over 900 properties listed on the Registry. Registration for heritage designation does enable the owners to access some funding and also provides for recognition of the home as a heritage site.

Election results Congratulations to Councillors Scott Moffatt and George Darouze for their reelection to City Council. We look forward to working with them on the key issues facing our area – better roads, better sidewalks, safe streets for pedestrians and cyclists, reduced truck traffic through the Village Core and a revitalized Village Core for Manotick.

Paper copies are also available at the Manotick Arena and Manotick Library. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your views on priority projects. Survey closes November 11, 2018.

Services for Seniors Rural Ottawa South Support Services (ROSSS) offers a number of services for seniors and will be launching a new phone service on November 13 for seniors who live alone or are feeling isolated. Seniors can call a phone line available 24 hours a day to chat and learn more about local services and activities. This pilot project is being funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. ROSSS is also managing

the City’s Snow Go Program which provides a matching service for seniors and people with disabilities looking to hire an individual or contractor to clear snow from private driveways and walkways. Residents who participate in this program are responsible for paying the individual or contractor removing the snow. In conjunction with the Snow Go program, ROSSS also manages the Snow Go Assist Program which provides financial assistance to eligible low-income seniors or persons with disabilities looking to hire an individual or contractor to clear snow from private driveways and walkways. Approved participants may be reimbursed for 50 % of the cost of snow clearing per event, up to a seasonal maximum of $250. Rural applicants who have excessively high cost of snow removal, as defined by staff, are eligible up to 50% of the

cost of snow clearing for their private driveways and walkways per event, up to a maximum of $450 per Term. To determine if you are eligible for this program or to apply, please contact Della at ROSSS at 613-692-4697 or 613-821-1101.

Around the Village Manotick is getting a new coffee shop at the corner of Bridge and Main. Morning Owl is expected to open in January 2019 and will be shar-

ing the building with an optician. Work has begun on replacing culverts along Rideau Valley Drive between Century Road and Rogers Stevens Drive. This is in preparation for the repaving of this section of Rideau Valley Drive North in 2019. Work is also beginning on the Riverwalk bungalow development at the corner of Century Road and Rideau Valley Drive North.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Artists of Stonebridge ‘Paint the Town’ at art show this weekend

The Artists of Stonebridge will be holding their 9th Annual Art Show & Sale, Saturday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 4th, 2018 at the Stonebridge Golf Club, 68 Hawktree Ridge, Nepean. In addition to a wide variety of art work from AOS members, a special exhibit, The Nepean Collection, will be featured. The Nepean Collection: Every artist finds inspiration in different ways. Some are inspired by their travels, others by colours or light, and still others by the many aspects of nature. Dur-

ing 2018, twenty three AOS artists chose to draw their inspiration from closer to home - their own community of Nepean. The Nepean Collection is a sampling of Nepean landscapes, architecture, community spaces and more, as interpreted by the Artists of Stonebridge. In addition to its unveiling at the “Paint the Town” Art Show and Sale, The Nepean Collection will also be on exhibit at the Minto Recreation Complex on Cambrian Road from December 5th to February 6th, and will then move to the Barrhaven

Vietnamese Restaurant on Strandherd Drive. As well as being the inhouse artists at the Minto Recreation Complex, the AOS have eight other venues where art is displayed on a rotational basis. These include the offices of Mr. Chandra Arya, MP, Councillors Jan Harder’s and Michael Qaqish’s City Hall and Constituency offices, the Barrhaven Vietnamese Restaurant and the Royal Bank on Strandherd. The generosity of these institutions is much appreciated. Giving Back to the Com-

munity: Artists of Stonebridge is excited to announce that we will be accepting donations to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (CGDB) at the 2018 “Paint the Town” Art Show & Sale. CGDB is a national, non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1984 to provide Canadians with greater mobility and independence through the use of professionally bred, raised and trained dogs. The organization relies solely on public support and funding. Traditionally, art is enjoyed by the sighted, but by choos-

ing CGDB as our charity we can extend the value of our artists’ beautiful creations to benefit the lives of the visually impaired. Come and help Artists of Stonebridge “Paint the Town” at their Art Show & Sale on November 3rd and 4th at the Stonebridge Golf Club. Support for the artists means support for the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind and for the promotion of local art in our community. Artists of Stonebridge (AOS) is a non-profit organization formed in 2010 by a

small group of visual artists from Barrhaven. Over the years membership has grown to include 40 artists from across Canada and around the world. This diverse group works in a full spectrum of disciplines - from oil to acrylic, from watercolour to mixed media. The AOS vision is to increase the awareness and appreciation of original art as well as to provide the artists with opportunities to exhibit their art. The group also reaches out to the community by sharing their talents through workshops and fundraising for local charities.
