Remembrance Remembrance Day: North Gower residents vow to fight trucking warehouse Lest We Day: Forget MANOTICK, ONTARIO

By Charlie Senack Residents of North Gower are gearing up for a fight, promising to do everything they can to prevent a potential 30-metre high trucking warehouse from being built on Roger Stevens Drive. On Thursday, Oct 17, more than 400 residents packed the Alf Taylor Community Centre to share their displeasure over the proposed development. Before staff on hand completed their official presentation, North Gower residents we’re already pestering the city councillor and Broccolini staff with questions and feelings of wrath. Construction firm Broccolini owns the land, and is looking to build a warehouse which they would own and lease out, much like they are currently doing with the new Amazon Headquarters in the east end. Drawings shown at the meeting show different proposals, some showing one large warehouse, others showing multiple smaller buildings. Broccolini has requested to have the permitted height for a building on the property changed — increasing it from 15 metres to 30 metres — allowing it to be almost as tall as a nine-storey building. This is a big concern for nearby residents who are concerned about losing their view of the country. Those are concerns Ace Powell shares, a longtime resident of the area who lives on Third Line Road, just a hop, skip and a jump from the proposed warehouse site. He was one of six residents to receive a let-

Ontario more than doubles mental health funding for students Province announces series of initiatives to deliver front line services

On World Mental Health Day, the Minister of Education announced an investment of nearly $40 million, more than double the funding from 2017-18, to advance student mental health in partnership with education groups. The provincial government also announced that it will permanently fund approximately 180 frontline mental health workers in secondary schools (social workers, psychologists and psychotherapists) to reduce wait times and improve access to critical services.

warehouse continues from page 1 “There are lots of concerns we have,” he told this paper last week. “There will be constant transport truck traffic off the 416 onto Roger Stevens Drive. That road and that interchange can’t handle that traffic. There is also the amount of noise that will come from warehouse, likely all day and all night, as well as the bright lights. We don’t want to have this right behind our backyard.” These are all issues Broccolini will need to address, Scott Moffatt, the city councillor for RideauGoulbourn said, noting that modern technology is out there to help keep the lighting face down. He also said the construction firm has a traffic plan in place, which would allow the trucks to drive right off the 416 into the warehouse. “The truck traffic will be from the 416, onto the site, and then back onto the 416,” he said. “But the concern of the community is the employees. Which way will they come from?”

Despite all of that, Moffatt is fully in support of the warehouse being built, noting it’s the only location along the 416 that is zoned for industrial and commercial uses — something the former Townships of Rideau and Osgoode voted on in the 1990’s. “A lot of residents wonder why I support this. A lot of it comes down to what is currently prohibited with what is proposed,” Moffatt said during the start of the meeting. “The site is currently zoned for a 70,000-square foot building already, but it just depends on the configuration. The entire site could be built out to 1.4 billion square feet, and it’s in a variety of buildings. It could be a bunch of small buildings, it could be seven tall buildings and a few large buildings.” Another concern residents brought up was the risk of flooding. Teddy LaFramboise has lived in the area for a number of years, and said she believes

the land is made up of gravel and rock deposit, making it a “moisture pit.” She asked what type of work was being done to ensure the site would be safe from spring flooding. “The zoning was changed in the 90’s, and back then climate change was not a general accepted theory,” she said. “It’s a little more

We people in this area are extremely subject to flooding (and) That area is extremely subject to flooding.” Officials on hand said Patterson’s Associates are currently looking to see if there would be any issues with groundwater supply. Residents say they will continue to fight against

this proposal, and are still disappointed with how the process was initiated. According to one local resident, only six homeowners received a letter from the city regarding a zoning application. Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari also said she was blindsided about the news of the proposed warehouse,

and said she was only made aware of it through stories published in the media. She said she would have attended the public meeting if she wasn’t attending a conference in BC. Moffatt says work could begin on the site as early as 2021, but won’t commence until Broccolini secures a tenant for the space.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY English Catholic Pavilion at Centennial Park renamed to Teachers’ Association honour Ian McDonald to hold strike vote November 13 The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has announced it will conduct a province-wide strike vote. The OECTA Provincial Bargaining Team has met 17 times with representatives of the government and the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association. “We have reached a critical juncture in the bargaining process,” says Liz Stuart, President of OECTA. “Catholic teachers strongly oppose the Ford Conservative government’s regressive education agenda. The Minister has publicly said the government is prepared to make investments in the classroom, but at the bargaining table they appear determined to pursue their reckless cuts,” adds Stuart. “To continue making

progress, it has become necessary to conduct a strike vote to demonstrate our Association’s solidarity and resolve. The government has not listened to our representatives at the bargaining table, so we will be asking our members to demonstrate they are united and prepared to do whatever is necessary to stand up for Ontario’s world-class publicly funded education system,” says Stuart. Negotiations can continue while the strike vote is being conducted. “Our priority is to reach an agreement that recognizes Catholic teachers’ vital contributions to Ontario’s society and economy, protects against the government’s cuts, and ensures quality learning and working conditions in our schools,” says Stuart. OECTA will conclude its strike vote on November 13.

On Friday, Oct. 11, Mayor Jim Watson and Councillor Scott Moffatt attended a ceremony to name the pavilion at the Centennial Park Ball Diamonds after Ian McDonald, who recently passed away. Many Manotick residents will know Ian, who ran the Village Pro Shop in the Manotick Arena for many years, sharpening skates and making quick emergency repairs to hockey helmets and equipment at game time, often at no charge. Ian started a skate and equipment exchange to help parents equip children as they grew out of skates through the years. Many young boys and girls, when families were experiencing hardship, were

equipped for hockey at little or no change by Ian. Ian was involved in the building of the current ball parks and headed up the volunteer groups that added lights to the Harold Hamm Diamond. Ian was on the bulldozer when the big boulders were placed along the pathway through the park. As master carpenter, Ian volunteered to build the outdoor rink boards, and volunteered to be project manager on the building of the first two Centennial Park pavilions, that were both burned down by the vandals. Ian played in the adult hockey and ball leagues, convened softball leagues and was

Tough choices ahead for City Councillors at budget time

It’s a sobering fact. Almost One-half of Canadian workers say they are living paycheque to paycheque and that meeting their financial obligations would be difficult if their pay was delayed by even one week. While Ottawa is considered an affluent city, we know many families are living on the margins – struggling to make their income go as far as possible. There is no pot of free money to access. Now consider government. When it needs more money, it increases taxes, hikes fees and levies. We all end up paying, including all those families who can’t afford to pay more. That’s why I feel so strongly about looking for savings at the city, and potentially reducing certain services before we go back to property owners for more money. Council is asking for more money this year.

WARD REPORT by Carol Anne Meehan

The 2020 draft budget calls for a 3 percent property tax hike overall, along with 6.4 percent more on the transit levy, higher fare increases, garbage, water, wastewater and stormwater fees all higher. That’s without really taking a look at what we as a city could do without, what programs might no longer be needed. I’ve only been on council a year, but I am well aware there are so-called “untouchable” programs that the city funds annually. Just talking about cutting or freezing funding is considered a career killer. But I firmly believe nothing should be off-limits. Let’s consider a few items that we should at



least be examining. Ottawa allocates 10 million dollars on cultural and arts programs. Don’t get me wrong; I love the arts; we are a better city because of our investment. But we also have thousands of families waiting for affordable housing, new immigrants, many with young children are being squeezed into motel rooms. They are suffering socially, physically and mentally. In my

world we would at least consider allocating the ten million in cultural funding to housing, at least for one year. It would alleviate the insufferable backlog. Staffing levels and pay. The city of Ottawa has more than 15,000 full-time equivalent employees. The yearly bill for that is 1.6 billion. Add 36 million dollars annually to give everyone a pay increase if we could convince city

staff to accept a pay freeze for a year think of what we could do with the money. Everything must be on the table. We cannot afford to have preconceived notions on what we must and mustn’t fund. I am not attacking or criticizing City staff or the excellent work they do. My point is that Council owes it to taxpayers to take an honest and critical look at how we spend your money.

Politicians need to turn off the autopilot and challenge the bureaucracy to do better. If households do it, why can’t the City?

The MessengerLETTERS HOME IMPROVEMENT Rogers Stevens development will ruin JM quaint appeal of village

The Editor, Further to the Manotick Messenger articles from Oct. 11 about a proposed 700,000 square foot warehouse along Roger Stevens Drive and Hwy 416, I am extremely disappointed to hear of this plan. It is also disheartening to hear of Councillor Scott Moffatt’s support for this development. I

have a deep connection to the Kars-North Gower area, having been raised in Kars and I have a family that still resides in that area. I spend a lot of time there and saw a future in the village for me and my family. This proposed warehouse makes me question this future. Kars-North Gower is a

beautiful area. It is quiet, calm and serene with the winding Rideau River. We often visit the Baxter Conservation Area to walk the trails, take the kids to the North Gower Library, and I often go for long weekend walks around the area. The proposed development will mean an increase in traffic, noise and light pollution,

and thereby ruining the quaint appeal of our village. I strongly oppose this development and I ask that you prioritize the citizens of our community over corporate interests as the development seeks city council approval. Sarah Heir

Don’t overlook environmental impact of Roger Stevens-416 project The Editor, Further to the Manotick Messenger articles from Oct. 11, I am writing about the mega-project plan (including a 700,000 square foot warehouse) which is being proposed at Roger Stevens Drive and Hwy. 416. I would like to bring to your attention a perspective not so often being discussed – the environmental impact of this proposed plan – which, besides lack of infrastructure, is just as important. I have read the environmental study done with the proposal which was completed after a total of two visits of three hours each, but knowing the area well and knowing the diversity of nature that lives there, a more in-depth study needs to be undertaken prior to further consideration of any proposed development on this rich agricultural land. The new study should include the negative impacts to all animal, plant and wildlife, including the resulting road kill due to displaced wildlife and increased truck traffic. Following this study, if for some reason this ill-advised (and very poorly communicated to the community of Kars-North Gower) plan is still given the go-ahead by the City of Ottawa, a legal com-

mitment should be made by the developer to truly respect this study and follow it, preserving those areas and species that are most vulnerable. It is frustrating and upsetting how our city sees land (the removal of trees, stripping and flattening the earth and removal of rich topsoil) merely as a means to fulfill what they see as “economic growth”. We can no longer carry on with our treatment of the land and its devastating impacts on all “life”. (Note: recent scientific reports found profound bird loss in North America due to a loss of habitat and a 60 per cent decline in animal wildlife population. As recent climate change matches around the world demonstrate, including in our very own city, environmental issues are beginning to be at the front of mind for citizens. While discussions of these challenges have increasingly taken place on the national stage, and potential solutions progressively weaved into federal party platforms, it is important that our municipal leaders realize the role they play in this respect. Our municipal leaders will demonstrate to their very own constituents that decisions are being made on their behalf and for the betterment

of their futures, and not for the advancement of corporate interests veiled behind platitudes of job creation and “economic growth.” While federal leadership is necessary to address systemic issues at a macro level, it is our villages, towns and cities alike who can play a meaningful role at the micro level by institut-

ing environmentally-conscious policies (e.g., mandatory environmental studies) and issuing zoning regulations that not only support sustainable development, but signal to federal leaders the gravity of these issues and the urgency required to address them. R. McNiece, Kars

Nature brings us fall colours, but don’t ignore human nature

We’ve all experienced feeling down for many different reasons and causes. Then we pick ourselves up and get going again. Human nature is strange, cruel, unpredictable - what is human nature, why do we say it, what do we mean - are they just words “human nature”? Some describe it as happiness, sadness, periods when we are not even sure who we are or why.

In this world filled with headlines of shootings and terrorist attacks anywhere, everywhere, it’s easy to wonder “what is wrong with people these days?” Life is short already so why are people trying to make it shorter? Is it because of self- interest; greed; a declining interest in concern for others? It has been said that the decline is more the “norm” now than it was at

friends through a minute of texts and emails but the smile of face to face is missing in everyday contact. We miss a genuine laugh or hug; even tears and the com-

forting touch with a friend, neighbour or co-worker. With fewer interactions it is hard to decipher what might be going on in the hearts and minds of those around us. So what is the remedy? I suggest making your social life a priority; if at work go for lunch with a friend instead of eating at your desk; perhaps take the stairs together for exercise. Life has become more stressful,

and any kind of stress may minimize our empathetic capacities. The “wonder” of all the wonderful things around us - trees, sun, rain, flowers, birds, animals, friends, relatives, sounds, fruits, vegetables, laughter, tears, love and on and on and on! I keep thinking that the more we are exposed to “wonder” it helps us keep in tune to the welfare of others.

City of Ottawa organic waste facility among the cleanest


I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving spent with family and friends. It is a wonderful time of year to reflect on the people and things you appreciate as well as take a long weekend to relax.


I enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a tour of the City of Ottawa processing facility for organic waste during their Open House this week. Renewi Canada has the cleanest facility to process green bin organic waste. What you put in your green bin comes to the Renewi facility and goes through several steps. Plastic bags are shredded, and air-drying waste lets Mother Nature take over with millions of bugs and organisms breaking down food products. There are ammonia scrub-

bers in place to prevent the rotten egg smell generally associated with waste. The result is a dry organic soil supplement that farmers can spread on their fields. The air quality is tested twice daily with a “sniffer” test from outside the facility where the air exits. With this test, staff can adjust the scrubbers as necessary inside the facility to ensure the odour is barely detectable to the surrounding area. Remember when you bag it and bin it, do not include hard plastic materials that will not process and break-

On Thursday October 17, the residents of the Buckles Municipal drain watershed were invited to a meeting with Robinson Consultants engineers. The meeting was to discuss that the drain was in need of an updated engineers report as it has not been updated in the past 40 years. With the amount of growth in the village of Osgoode, as well as continuing developments and farmland to the south, this update is much needed. Residents were asked by the engineer to provide their feedback for where they are experiencing drainage problems, so that they may be reviewed and addressed during the report assessment if it

fell within the Buckles Drain. We were assured by the engineers and staff as well that smaller lots within the village will be assessed under block assessments, and in previous history of municipal drainage report updates, residents within the blocks have not seen charges applied to them. Ultimately it will be up to the engineer to decide how the assessment charges are distributed, but they are happy to discuss any concerns with residents as well as my office staff and I are able to speak with you. Please contact the engineers, Robinson Consultants at 613-592-5995.

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is moving forward with implementing our Rural Nurse Liaison Pilot. This project will see Public Health Nurses (PHNs) assigned to rural wards to assist in navigating public health services with a special focus on ad-

dressing the unique needs of residents in our rural communities. I am excited to announce that the PHNs for this pilot have been selected. I would like to mention that these PHNs have been selected for their experience working with diverse populations, including rural communities, and for their knowledge of public health programs and services. The PHN liaisons will act as community health knowledge brokers and capacity builders, improving the health of residents in rural communities in the City of Ottawa.

Why November 11?

Remembrance Day in Canada is a day to commemorate members of the armed forces. Remembrance Day is observed each year on November 11 because that marks the official end of World War I in 1918. On that day, the Germans officially signed the armistice, an agreement that officially put an end to the fighting in WWI. That’s one reason why Remembrance Day is often referred to as Armistice Day. Though the day has a significant connection to World War I, it also honours the men and women who fought for Canada in World War II, the Korean War and those who continue to serve in the military. Over the years, more than 1.5 million Canadians have fought for their country and to defend the rights and freedoms of non-Canadians as well. Among the Remembrance Day traditions is the wearing of poppies, which are worn as the symbol of remembrance and a reminder of the blood-red flower that grows on the former battlefields of France and Belgium.

Why the poppy? The poppy has stood as the official symbol of Canada’s Remembrance Day since 1921, a visual reminder of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for war. Some may wonder why this small flower is used to represent the fallen s oldier. Poppies and

fallen soldiers have a long history together. The origins of the flower can be traced back to the Napoleonic wars in France. During these times of unrest and battle, many soldiers went on to final resting places in graves in Flanders, France. Ensuing literature describ-

ing how poppies grew so thickly and vibrantly over these graves, in soil that once could not produce much vegetation. Years later, a soldier would be instrumental in bringing the symbol of the poppy to the hearts and minds of Canadians. When John Mc-

Crae served in World War I as a L i e u t e n a n t - Co l onel, he was stationed near Ypres, Belgium, the area traditionally called Flanders. McCrae observed how poppies grew so well among the makeshift graves of the soldiers, which were marked by wooden

crosses. When McCrae lost a fellow soldier and close friend, he penned a poem called “In Flanders Fields” and portrayed the picture of war and the poppy flower visual. To this day McCrae’s poem remains among the most memorable war poems ever

written. It also paved the way for the poppy flower to be one of the most recognized symbols of wartime remembrance. Thousands of poppies are placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and Remembrance Day participants wear poppies on their lapels.

Lest We Forget


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.

The MessengerFOCUS ON YOUTH Music is a big part of life in and out of school for OTHS student Name: Oliver Robinson Age: 17 School: Osgoode Township High Grade: 12 Parents: Eleanor and Jeff Robinson Brothers: “Justin (14), grade 9, OTHS; Jordan (19), currently studying agriculture at the University of Guelph.” Pet: “I have a dog named Nike who loves to steal corn from our garden and lie in my mother’s flowerbeds.” Pet Peeve: “One of my biggest pet peeves is spoilers; if someone accidentally reveals the ending of a book to me, I may quietly resent them for a while.” Part-time Work: “I am currently employed at the new Greely Foodland, in the “Fresh Cut” department, where my duties include (but are not limited to) chopping up various fruits and vegetables, making guacamole, and directing people towards the washroom since our section is beside the front entrance.”


YOUTH by Phill Potter

Favourite Subjects: “My favourite subjects in school are English and the Social Sciences, particularly Anthropology and Sociology. Maths and sciences aren’t necessarily my forte, but I’ve always loved Music Class. I also really enjoy learning and speaking French, though despite doing immersion for 14 years, I’m still hesitant to call myself bilingual. A course I’m taking this year that I’m really enjoying, is History Since the 15th Century. Currently, we’re touching on the Renaissance in Italy, and I’m really loving it.” What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? “I love dystopian fiction, a few of my favourites being 1984, Fahrenheit 451, and Brave New World. I also love memoirs, one of my absolute favourites being I Know

Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, and allegorical novels like Animal Farm. When I was little, my Dad bought me a series of books that were essentially abridged, kid-friendly versions of classic novels like Anne of Green Gables, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and my favourite, The Swiss Family Robinson. So I’ve been slowly working through the originals, which I’ve found quite fun to do. It goes without saying, if you know me. I love the entirety of the Harry Potter Series, and I’ll indulge myself with anything written by John Green as well. I don’t read much nonfiction, but currently I’ve been obsessed with Yuval Harari’s book, Sapiens.” Who is your favourite author? “I love Ray Bradbury’s work, particularly his short stories, my two favourites being The Pedestrian, and The Murderer.” What is your Greatest Accomplishment? “I’m not sure if I have a great accomplish-

ment worth noting, but I am proud of the fact that our Jazz Band won gold at MusicFest last year, which earned us a spot to compete at Nationals, where we earned silver. I had a solo in one of the songs of our set, Georgia on My Mind, and while that was nerve racking, it was a big accomplishment in my eyes.” Activities/Interests: “Music is a huge part of my life inside and outside of school. I play guitar, tenor and alto saxophone, and I have just begun learning the clarinet as well. I am a part of the Jazz and Concert Band at OTHS, and I have been for all four years of high school. I am also one of the students involved in organizing our school’s annual Leadership Camp, an event in which students stay overnight at the school for a weekend doing various confidence building activities. My role is a sort of “camp counselor” for the younger students.

I also love being outside in nature, and I’ve been a part of the Outdoor Education program for the past 2 years, where we go on a handful of amazing trips, my favourite being the hiking in the Adirondacks. Outside of school, I enjoy cycling, running and reading.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “Life is hard, and school is hard. I’ve found that the only way to deal with this, is to fully immerse yourself in your passions, giving yourself things to get excited about.” Career Goals: “In terms of career paths, I’ll be happy in any profession that allows me to keep learning about the world. I’m fundamentally uncertain as to what career that may be, so I dread the inescapable, “What are you doing after high school?” question. However, currently I’m leaning towards a career in research or teaching.” Comment: “I would also like to thank Osgoode for being

Music has been a big part of Oliver Robinson’ S years at Osgoode Township High school. PHILL POTTER PHOTO such an amazingly supportive and accepting school. I’m really grateful for the kindness I have received from all the teachers and staff over the years. I know that I’m really lucky to have had such a great experience, and I can’t thank everyone enough.”

The MessengerSPORTS

Richmond Royals knock off first place Westport Rideaus Manotick Messenger Staff The Richmond Royals are swirling near the bottom of the Central Canada Junior Hockey League 2 standings, but they showed they can play with any team in the league. On Saturday night in Richmond, the Royals faced the first place Westport Rideaus at the Richmond Memorial Centre. Despite being outshot 45-27, the Royals rode the hot goaltending of Darien Johnson and took advantage of key miscues and turnovers to pick up a 6-2 win. Johnson took on a barrage of rubber in the first period, as Westport fired 19 shots at Johnson. He stopped all of them, and the Royals were able to go into the first intermission with a 1-0 lead as Owen Grundy scored his first of the year from Ethan Greene and Patrick Yates with less than three minutes to play in the period. In the second period, Yates scored his sixth goal of the year from Greene and Adam Goodfellow at the


1:18 mark. Midway through the second, a couple of local minor hockey graduates combined to put Westport on the board. Former Upper Canada Cyclone Griffin Patterson converted a feed from former Ottawa Valley Silver Seven standout Blake Kettyle and Charles Rongo to make the score 2-1. Richmond regained control of the game as TK Mwamba scored his first of the year from Connor Gilchrist and Declan Flanagan, and Yates added his second of the game from Adam Goodfellow with 1:47 remaining in the period. Sean James scored for Westport in the third from Kettyle and Anthony Ieradi on the power play, but that was all the offence the Rideaus would get on Johnson. Ryan Mann scored his sixth of the year from Yates and Dupuis to give Richmond a 5-2 lead, while Ethan Vaset added a shorthanded empty net goal with 1:35 left to play. Johnson was the first star of the game, stopping 43 of

45 shots faced. Yates was the second star while Kettyle was the game’s third star. The win snapped a twogame skid for the Royals, as they had dropped a pair of games the previous week. On Sunday, Oct. 13, the Ottawa Junior Canadians beat the Royals 8-1. The Rouyals scored three goals in both the first and second periods, and added two in the third before Ryan Mann scored his fifth of the year from Yates to break the shutout. On Thanksgiving Day, the Royals hosted the Carleton Place Canadians and lost 4-1. The Canadians outshot the Royals 55-20 in the contest. Connor Gilchrist scored the lone Royals goal from Declan Flanagan. Bill Gourgon, Ethan Woolsey, Jayden Boyer and Oliver Reid were the goals scorers for Carleton Place. This weekend, the Royals travel to Char-Lan to take on the Rebels Saturday night. Sunday afternoon, they are at home to face Casselman for a 1:30 p.m. face-off.

What is the Best Hearing Device?

If you have gone online or spoke to friends in the quest to find out which device is the best one, you were most likely confused by all the conflicting reports. This is normal because, truth is; there is no one device that will be perfect for everyone. Why? Well, because there is no one type of hearing loss profile, no one type of hearing need, no one type of person. Your “Best Device” is the one founded on a thorough assessment of your hearing capabilities and selected with all of your unique wants and needs in mind. The good news is that across the many Manufacturers, there are some great products to choose from. Some have a great wind manager for outdoor enthusiasts, others are geared to the musicians, others excel in connectivity, and so on and so forth. So, finding your “Best Device” is possible. The key is customization. You must consult a clinician that will research the entire market to find the solution that will most efficiently address your unique needs. Offering just that is Hearing

Freedom, a locally owned, grown, and operated clinic. Their grass-roots approach is unfortunately rare in today’s market, where retail settings, larger clinics and Manufacturer owned chains have become increasingly present. The unique and refreshing approach that sets Hearing Freedom apart from other providers was established nearly 20 years ago by Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology. After interviewing for employment at many local clinics, she was disheartened to discover Manufacturer limitations and a focus on sales tactics and expected sales targets. “That is not proper hearing health care.” says McNamee, “To properly treat hearing loss and to maximize my patients’ quality of life, everything available in the market must be considered for each and every patient. Furthermore, I must do so with their particular needs and wants in mind, not my employer’s profit margins. Compromising on hearing healthcare is not an option for me. One-size-fits-all solutions just don’t cut it.” And so she de-

cided to set up her own business, doing it her way and putting patients first. At Hearing Freedom, there are no predetermined products or plans. Each and every patient’s intervention plan is as unique as they are. The experience begins with a thorough hearing evaluation which is followed by a detailed needs assessment. Throughout, the patient’s input is held paramount. “We devote all the time necessary to help our patients navigate this complex hearing healthcare terrain. We want to ensure our patients’ hearing needs are met.” explains McNamee, “We offer pre-purchase demos as well as a 90-day trial period on purchased hearing aids. These options give patients the confidence that they have chosen the right solution for them, their lifestyle and hearing needs.” With their focus on rehabilitation and continued support, a 5 year service plan is included with each purchase. This assures essential hearing checkups and hearing aid care. In addition, there are no Hearing Instrument Practitioners or Hearing Instrument Spe-

cialists at Hearing Freedom. Rather, patients are seen by experienced, fully bilingual, Registered Audiologists. With Masters and Doctorate-level degrees, Audiologists are the most qualified in their field. They service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WCB, VAC, etc). “Not only is hearing complex, so are today’s hearing aid options,” McNamee explains. “Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.” At Hearing Freedom you can be certain that you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs. So, if you believe in your right to the best, fullest and most customized service available, make sure you book your appointment with Hearing Freedom. You will not regret your short drive to Manotick. Parking is free. Home visits optional. Wheelchair Friendly. For more information visit www.HearingFreedom.com
