TransCanada announces termination of Energy East Pipeline Project would have carried 1.1 million barrels of oil sands per day through community By Manotick Messenger staff

Plans for an oil sands pipeline that was to run through the community and under the Rideau River in Kars have been terminated. TransCanada Corporation announced last week it will no longer be proceeding with its proposed Energy East Pipeline project. “After careful review of changed circumstances, we will be informing the National Energy Board that we will no longer be proceeding with our Energy East and Eastern Mainline applications,” said TransCanada CEO and President Russ Girling. “We appreciate and are thankful for the support of labour, business and manufacturing organizations, industry, our customers, Irving Oil, various governments, and the approximately 200 municipalities who passed resolutions in favour of the projects. Most of all, we thank Canadians across the country who contributed towards the development of these initiatives.”




intended to carry oil sands from Alberta to refineries in Quebec and Atlantic Canada. It was slated to go through Eastern Ontario and travel along Malakoff Road to Kars, where it would cross under the Rideau. It was then expected to cut into North Grenville and go across to Dundas County, where it would go south from Winchester to Iroquois. The pipeline would then travel along the St. Lawrence River to Quebec. The pipeline to be used in the area was an old gas pipeline no longer in use. Pumping stations and new pipelines were to be built once the projected headed toward Iroquois. The pipeline has been a lightning rod in a number of communities. Politicians such as North Grenville Mayor David Gordon were on record as supportive of the jobs that the pipeline project would bring to Eastern Ontario. Others, however, were vocal in their concern over the dangers and environmental threats that came with the oil

Ecology Ottawa held a protest at the North Gower Community Centre when the project was announced, and they were pleased with the news of the pipeline’s cancellation. They called the cancellation a victory. “TransCanada will tell you it has abandoned Energy East because of technical reasons. They will cite the price of oil and the additional burden of new National Energy Board requirements as the reason for scuttling the project,” says Robb Barnes, Ecology Ottawa’s Acting Executive Director. “More important still is the fact that Energy East lost on political grounds. Like other communities along the pipeline route, Ottawans rejected this project because it threatened the health of their city and was completely incompatible with our community doing its fair share to fight climate change.” The pipeline was expected to ship 1.1 million barrels of diluted bitumen across Ottawa. Barnes said the pipeline


posed a direct threat

to the city’s water, land and climate. Since the pipeline project was announced in 2013, Ecology Ottawa has been working in communities across Ottawa to mobilize resistance to the pipeline. The ecological risk associated with diluted bitumen is much greater than with oil. In a leak or spill situation, it sinks to the bottom of the body of

It is alleged that Borutski then took Culleton’s car and drive it to Kuzyk’s home in Wilno. Richardson said Borutski and Kuzyk had been in a relationship that ended on a bad note. Robertson said that in 2014, he was convicted of charges Kuzyk had filed against him. Richardson explained that Kuzyk’s sister, Eva, was upstairs and heard a scream. She came downstairs to find Anastasia crouching, trying to hide. She told Eva that Borutski was there. Richardson said she ran outside, barefoot, and heard a gun shot. Eva ran to nearby construction workers and called 911. Borutski then drove Culleton’s car to the home of Warmerdam near Cormac, ON. She had also been involved in a relationship with Borutski, and it had also not ended well. In 2012, Borutski was convicted on charges for offenses against Warmerdam

Assistant Crown Attorney Jeffrey Richardson said the three murders Basil Borutski is on trial for were all about his own brand of justice. “(It’s a) justice where murders like these are justifiable; ustice where women pay the ultimate price for using what Borutski says is a corrupt justice system against, him. (It’s) justice where Borutski gets to be judge, jury and executioner, justice where there is only one truth that counts – his truth.” Richardson said. Borutski is on trial for three counts of firstdegree murder in the deaths of 66-year-old Carol Culleton of North Gower, 36-year-old Anastasia Kuzyk, and 48-year-old Nathalie Warmerdam. The bodies were found on Sept. 22, 2015. Culleton, who had moved to the area from North Gower, was the first of the three women killed. Richardson made his opening statements Wednesday. Richardson intends to prove that Borutski drove to Culleton’s cottage on Kamaniskeg Lake Road at about 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 22. 2015. Frustrated by Culleton’s

Our Autumn walk is filled with wonder

My friend and I go for a walk in the woods this Autumn day. As we walk along, take my hand so you don’t stumble on the rough path. We wonder about the others who have passed this way, did they look at the beauty that we see. The range of colours is amazing – orange, red and gold mingled among the evergreens – sumacs, maple, and oak blend along with the field over there. The leaves drop and drift almost rhythmically on the wind like butterflies wings. Listen to the noisy crunch of the leaves under our wandering steps. Back to the others who went through here before us – did they marvel at the moss on that stone, look, there is a deer, did their heart leap like ours? Did you hear that – the scurry of field mice as they quickly disappear under a fallen branch? Look up; see that patch

Many people have trod this autumn path – no doubt the Indian many moons ago must have felt the earth was blessed knowing that all was at rest until spring. Listen to the trees’ sing as the wind comes rustling through. It’s time to go back now, dusk falls quickly and then the chill fills the air. As we walk back the smell of chimney smoke from someone’s fireplace hangs in the air; we are reluctant to go inside but we must. What a great way to

spend an autumn afternoon! Autumn’s lovely magic brings happiness to us. Autumn is not a sad season – nature has merely fallen asleep, her dreams must be beautiful if we judge by what we have seen. It is almost as if the season holds time suspended as the seeds slumber beneath their leafy quilt, waiting for springs thaw. So much in life is a miracle yet we are so used to it we accept it without a thought. Take time to look at your world and open your mind to the miracles going on around you. What a wonderful country we live in to be able to do that.

What’s missing in Ontario’s approach to marijuana distribution Ontario deserves some credit for forging ahead with guidelines for its legal marijuana distribution system, but the province’s plan is filled with ambiguities and unknowns. Ontario is the first province to define how it intends to sell non-medicinal marijuana to the public. About 150 stores across the province will be operated by a division of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO). Ontario has set the minimum legal age for purchasing marijuana at 19. But there are few specifics on pricing or costs. The government was completely tight-lipped on many facets of a highly complex marijuana puzzle. Most important, no consideration has been given to edible cannabis products or how these products will be marketed. Nor have guidelines for home cultivation and use been contextualized, especially for households with children. Cooking at home with marijuana, for example, can be tricky. What’s more, the food service industry and restaurants were not even mentioned in the announcement. So how will legalizing marijuana for recreational use affect food in genPage 6, Manotick Messenger, June 23, 2010 eral? The province says Wednesday, it won’t allow edibles, for now.

Osgoode WardREPORT

161st Metcalfe Fair was biggest and best to date The 161st Metcalfe Fair Opening Ceremony and Reception was a wonderful opportunity to thank the board members, volunteers and invited guests for being a part of this great rural fair. Outgoing Fair Board President Brain Johnston and the rest of the board were acknowledged for their contributions over the years to help make the Metcalfe Fair bigger and better with each year. In attendance to offer congratulations were Mayor Jim Watson, MP Pierre Poilivere and MPP Lisa MacLeod.

Demolition Derby

Lady luck was on my side this year in the Metcalfe Fair Demolition Derby. My car won first place in the final round! Big congrats to Brett Van Herpt who not only worked on my car, but drove it for the second year in a row. Many thanks to Ed, Matty, David and Chris Van Herpt, Courtney, Mark Appleby and the whole team who put many hours into creating the powerhouse we saw in the derby. Another big thanks to Wehbe of Ottawa Metro Towing for transporting and towing the car. With so many entries in the derby this year and with record breaking crowd attendance, it was quite the exciting Thursday night. Thanks for cheering us on!

Metcalfe Fair Booth

The number of people that came by my booth this year was astounding! The great weather, the enthusiastic staff and volunteers, and the smell of fresh popcorn turned the booth into a real attraction. As many of you know, Orchard View Wedding & Event Centre generously donated a mini BMW motorbike for a free draw at my booth this year. There were so many entries in the box, and local resident Jeff Parke was the lucky winner! We hope you all enjoyed stopping by my booth and enjoying the fairgrounds. Each day at the fair was a great opportunity for me and my staff to engage with residents face to face, discuss min-

guarantee that it would stay this low. After the election in 2018 it could be jacked up again. This was still unacceptable to me. Last year agreeing to the implementation of the stormwater tax, locked in at 2% increases was an incredibly difficult decision. I felt that agreeing to that was enough of a compromise, and I decided not support it increasing any further, so I voted against the 5% increase. I was elected to act on behalf of my residents, and I felt that my vote was keeping in line with that promise.

Coach Houses

Coach houses are small, detached residences that can be built to provide a private additional living space. Such residences can be ideal for keeping elderly family members or young people close while still giving them independence. Over the last year, with a tremendous amount of help from city staff, we have changed the requirements for rural Coach Houses a great deal, making them far more flexible. No rural property is automatically disqualified from building a Coach House, even if your property is less than an acre. Based on the size of the property and the services available there are slightly different requirements, so if you are interested in building a coach house reach out to my office and we can provide advice and put you in contact with city staff. We are not done yet, but already we have made it far more affordable and realistic for residents to build coach houses.

Stormwater Rates

Staff initially came to us Councilors with a tax increase of 13% for stormwater. Myself and many of my colleagues were understandably put off by this. We understood and expected a 2% increase. Through negotiations it was reduced by 5% for 2018, but with no

The MessengerSPORTS South Carleton grad Kealey selected in first round of NLL Draft

South Carleton High School grad and former Storm lacrosse star JP Kealey is turning professional. The North Gower native was selected in the first round, 10th overall, of the National Lacrosse League Draft by the New England Blackwolves. Kealey played at South Carleton and also played for the Nepean Knights before accepting a lacrosse scholarship to Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh. Kealey has somewhat out of the spotlight after losing two years to knee injuries. The time away from the box game means he hasn’t played indoors since Nepean Jr B in 2014. The year before that, he spent his lone season of Jr A with the 1-19 Mississauga Tomahawks, so it’s not like people were watching that closely as he put up 17 goals and 44 points. Kealey then joined the Langley Thunder and did well. He scored 20 goals and 23 assists for 43 points, second on the team overall and easily tops with the Thunder in points per game since he only played 12 games. During those 12, he was involved in 51.8% of Langley’s goals.

Getting to know JP Kealey

(From NLL.com) Name: JonPatrick Kealey (JP) Date of birth: August 21, 1993

Position: Forward Shooting hand: Left Jr Team: Nepean Knights Jr B, Mississauga Tomahawks Jr A Sr Team: Langley Thunder College: Robert Morris University Who was your favourite player growing up? It’s hard to pick just one. I had so many players I loved to watch and idolized growing up but here are a few: Jeff Zywicki, John Grant Jr. and Callum Crawford. What NLL player do you think your game is similar to or do you model your game after? As I mentioned earlier there’s so many players that I look up to or that have influenced my game. I’ve always tried to take things from not one person’s game but everyone’s. I like to watch how others excel and try and implement that skill into my game or put my own spin on it. I don’t like to compare myself to others because I think everyone is their own player but I’ve been told I play a little like Ryan Benesch, which I’ll gladly take; he’s a treat to watch. What will you bring to the team that drafts you? First and foremost, hard work and dedication. From more of a lacrosse standpoint, I feel like I can bring some scoring touch and creativity to an offence. I’m comfortable with or without the ball and look forward to fulfilling either role. What is your big-

gest accomplishment or the biggest moment of your lacrosse career so far? The biggest accomplishment of my career is not something I won

or achieved on the floor but off of it. I had to overcome two back to back ACL meniscus surgeries which took me out of lacrosse for over two

years. Those two years were the hardest of my life physically, mentally and emotionally. It felt like my dream of playing in the NLL was slipping

away from me but I never game up. Who would play you in the movie of your life? This is a stretch but Mark Wahlberg; he’s the man!

No room for bullies in our world of ‘Faith, Family, Football’

We are a football family. We live, eat, sleep and breathe it. When I was a young girl and pictured what my family would look like, I never really thought I would be a “Football Mom”. But here we are going into Year 8 of being on the field. We even have a plaque in the house that says “FAITH, FAMILY, FOOTBALL”. I have come to appreciate the discipline and integrity of the game. I love that the coaches are hard on the boys. I love that they are being taught how their actions affect those around them. I love how the coaches don’t tolerate the kids chatting amongst themselves when they are addressing the team. Such valuable life lessons. It’s impossible to wake up one day and think, “Today I am going to teach the kids how to respect and honour each other.” But they are learning it. You can see it in them. And these are boys who are growing up to be men in our community. They are the future. However, with everything amazing, there is an ugly side. And it showed itself more than ever before at a recent game. I arrived at our field on a gorgeous day ready to cheer on my son and his team. I set up my chair and chatted with some of the parents. I took a moment to look over at a huge sign that has been placed at the entrance of the field. It said: PLEASE REMEMBER…


THE DIVA 1. These are kids. 2. This is a game. 3. Coaches are volunteers. 4. Referees are human. 5. This is not the Grey Cup. The game was very exciting and intense. The crowd was enthusiastic and loud. It was a great atmosphere. Except for a small group of fathers. They were getting angry. Like actually angry. Yelling at the kids on the field. Berating them. Demanding players get subbed out. Behaving in a way that was so disrespectful to the game and to our team. Even long after the game was over, I couldn’t stop thinking about this incident and how inappropriate it was. How the actions of these few people tainted the experience for not only those around them, but for the players. These kids are out on the field doing THE BEST they can. Every single one of them came out to play. To work hard and do their best. Not one of them woke up on Game Day thinking…I am going to fumble that ball today if it’s the last thing I do. Then I realized with absolute clarity how to handle this situation in the future. These people are bullies. We are supposed to stand up to bullies. Everyone talks about

I will remember that: 1. These are kids 2. This is a game 3. Coaches are volunteers 4. Referees are human

it, but how many of us actually DO IT? We need to call these bullies out. I am calling these bullies out. I have watched the large group of boys in the “Team Huddle” at the end of the game for years. Listening to the words of wisdom from the coaches. I have seen many smiles, lots of frustration and many, many tears. The boys take this game seriously. They want to win. They want to make their team proud. They talk about every play, every throw, every tackle from every single game over and over and over again. Reliving every moment. It’s important to them. And it’s important to the parents. I feel for my kids or their teammates when they drop a pass or throw an interception. I’m excited and happy for them when they make a great throw, make a big tackle, or go for a long run with the ball. I watch them for hours at practice, all the time spent on the field learning plays and running routes. And the conditioning…that’s a lot of really hard work. So much running to prepare for the season, in full equipment. It’s not an easy sport. It requires a huge commitment. And my job as a parent is to support my child and the team. I will sit there and cheer from the sidelines, in the boiling hot and freezing cold. I will be there in the rain and snow and SUPPORT the team. I will be positive and know that the kids are doing their best.

5. This is not the Grey Cup. I am also going to remember that I have a voice. I am going to stand up and be heard.

Football is such a family sport for the Nepean Eagles that even the dogs wear their jerseys to games. KAREN DOMANSKI PHOTO

PHARMACY Q: Do I need to get the flu vaccine every year? A: Yes, the flu shot is recommended annually because it only provides protection for 1 year. Although, vaccination is the best protection against the flu, follow preventative measures such as washing hands Paul Brooks frequently, sneezing into arm/ Pharmacist elbow and getting proper nutrition to stay healthy and stop the spread of the virus. Stay home and rest if you feel like you have symptoms of the flu (fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, weakness). A pharmacist can recommend overthe-counter products that are suitable for you. Or to protect yourself against the flu, pharmacists will be providing flu shots by the end of October.

LEgAL SERVICES Q: My Husband and I are planning to sell our home. How does the Harmonized Sales Tax (“HST”) affect our sale? A: While there is no HST applicable to the sale price of Michelle Perry the home, HST is applicable to the real estate commission B.A.,LL.B. and legal fees. But don’t forget, HST is also applicable to other aspects of your move such as the cost of hiring professional movers, rental vehicles, and packing supplies. If you would like to know more about how HST affects your move, please give me a call.

VETERINARY SERVICES Q: If my dog is healthy, why do wellness blood work? A: Blood and urine tests are important tools for looking at the overall health of your pet. In the results, we can look for early signs of disease or infections. Many problems may not Dr. Andrew Sparling be obvious on a simple physical exam, but if caught early can be D.V.M. successfully treated or controlled, giving your pet a longer and better quality of life. It’s also important to have lab tests performed when a pet is healthy, so there is a baseline to compare results when/if your pet does become ill. Lab tests must be coupled with a complete physical examination and patient history from the owner to be of the most use. Blood work is usually performed when young to have that baseline and then annually once older. Ask your veterinary team what timeline is best for your pet.

Q: Do you know how much your dental insurance will pay per year or when your new insurance year begins?

Q: What do I need to supply to get a print job done?

A: Not all, but many dental insurance plans are from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. If you have not reached your yearly maximum, check with your dentist. If you do not use all of your insurance for the year, the remaining balance does not carry over to the next insurance year – it is lost! This is a great opportunity to consider doing cosmetic treatment or larger treatment that you may have been considering. Your dentist can send an estimate to your insurance company and within a few weeks you will know the portion your insurance company is going to cover. Call your insurance carrier for details about your plan. If you need further assistance with the dental terminology, call your dental office. DR. CHEVREUL HARRIS DR. KAREN FUNG-HARRIS AND ASSOCIATES

Cognitive science is the study of the kind and how it processes information. If we better understand how students think and learn, we can devise more strategies targeting their learning methods and ensure that the maximum amount of information is obtained from a single class. With an understanding of the mind, learning can be made easier and more efficient through new or different ways of teaching.”

MVCA submits priorities to councillor for 2018 Budget Consultations I was one of 8 people who attended the prebudget consultations at Emerald Links Golf Club on Tuesday, October 3. The consultations were hosted by Councillors Scott Moffatt, George Darouze and Michael Qaquish and Manotick was well represented with a majority of the attendees coming from our Village. Following a brief presentation on the budgeting process, questions and comments were raised on a variety of topics including stormwater fees, road conditions, defining priorities for the City and then identifying budget requirements, and the extension of Earl Armstrong Road. If you were unable to attend the session, you can still have input into the process. The City has made background information and budget resource materials available at ottawa.ca to help residents. Feedback and results from the Pre-Budget Consultations will be provided to Council until the draft budget is tabled on November 8, 2017. The draft budget will also be discussed at the November 23 meeting of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee (ARAC).

Our input

The Manotick Village and Community Association has submitted a number of priorities to Councillor Moffatt for consideration during the budget discussions. These priorities were identified in the 2016 Manotick Secondary Plan. They focus on walkability, road safety, and measures to improve traffic flow, particularly with the new development taking place in the south end of the Village. Specifically, we are requesting sidewalk extensions along Main Street, south from Eastman Avenue to Century Road; on Eastman Avenue to link the Mews and Potter Drive; and along Currier


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

to link the Mews to Main Street. A sidewalk is also proposed for Potter Drive when it is going to be repaved. We are also asking for a second pedestrian crosswalk at Beaverwood and Main to improve walkability and pedestrian safety and access to businesses on both sides of Main Street. We continue to ask for quicker action on the roundabouts at Prince of Wales and Bankfield as well as the redirection of First Line Road to Prince of Wales with a new roundabout at that intersection. These will be critical in helping with traffic flow when phases 2-4 are built by Minto in Mahogany. Finally, we have asked about timing of the extension of Earl Armstrong Road, now that Finlay Creek is expanding again and the new casino facility will need better road access. We hope that this will be built sooner than later as it will also help to provide an alternate truck route across the south end. We also recommended that consideration be given to adding to Hyfield Seniors Residence so that seniors living in the Village have more options to stay here. If there are other items that you think the MVCA should add, please let me know at president@ manotickvca.org

Riverwalk Development at ARAC

The proposed development for a bungalow community at the corner of Main St and Kelly Marie Drive received approval for the requested zoning amendment at the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee (ARAC) meeting on October 5. The zoning amendment

will enable the developer to build townhome type bungalows on deeper lots backing onto Island View Drive and to apply the park zone to the proposed park located at the end of Kelly Marie Drive. This is another step in the development process that will lead to construction of 45 bungalow townhomes and 37 detached dwellings. The developer will now be required to submit a Development Concept Plan to the City.

Requirements for Rural Coach Houses Streamlined

ARAC also approved new requirements for the construction of privately serviced Coach Houses on rural lots. They have simplified the requirements and enabled construction on smaller lot sizes than originally proposed, provided they have sufficient water supply and septic capacity. The City has already received 9 applications for Coach Houses in rural areas. Once the requirements are approved by Council, they will be posted on the City of Ottawa web site.

RVCA Hazard Mapping Open House

A good crowd attended this open house hosted by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) on September 27. RVCA presented new maps of flood and slope stability along the Rideau River. Many area residents came to see if their property was at risk of either flooding or bank erosion. For those unable to attend the open house, mapping can also be seen online at www.rvca.ca and comments can be sent to Ferdous Ahmed, RVCA Senior Water Resources Engineer at: Ferdous.Ahmed@rvca. ca.
