Watson’s Mill was transformed into a house of horrors last week as the Mill hosted its annual Halloween Haunt. Close to 1,000 visitors and local residents trekked through the terrifying maze of macabre scenes on the main floor, and the chilling underworld downstairs. On Saturday, the Mill will be hosting a more family-friendly and much-less-frightening Children’s Party from 1-4 p.m. The party will feature fun Halloween activities, games and crafts.

Community rallies to support local dairy farmer in aftermath of blaze By Manotick Messenger Staff They say what goes around, comes around. Judging from the huge turnout and the overwhelming show of support in North Gower last Saturday night, Barrhaven-area farmer Peter Ruiter is a man that has always been there for his friends, neighbours and colleagues. The evening was billed as the Blackrapids Farmfest Fundraiser. The farm, located on Prince of Wales Drive north of Manotick, suffered significant damage in a fire last month. Three barns and 83 cows were destroyed in the blaze, which had damages surpassing $1 million. A number of people and organizations stepped up to organize the fundraiser, including Saint Monica Parish, the Ottawa Carleton Milk Committee, the Ottawa Federation of Agriculture and the Junior Farmer’s Association of Ontario. A large number of supporters packed the Alfred Taylor Community Centre in North Gower. “We were worried that we wouldn’t be able to handle the huge crowd we were going to get,”


said Navan farmer Wyatt McWilliams, who works closely with Ruiter on Ottawa’s Food Aid Day at City Hall each year. Other area farmers, such as Dwight Foster of North Gower, were also there to show their support. Foster and Ruiter have known each other for more than a generation, and they have often stood alongside each other to fight for the rights of Eastern Ontario farmers in the political arena, especially in the aftermath of the BSE crisis more than a decade ago. Ruiter, his wife Rosemary, and children Sharon, Lindsay and Mark were overwhelmed by the support of the community at the event, which attracted well over 500 people. “It’s been outstanding,” Ruiter said of the support. “Everybody keeps saying you’re a good guy, but I don’t see it. I just live the way I think I should live my life. I have always tried to do little gestures – not big gestures – but this is one big, big gesture back. It’s a little overwhelming.” Ruiter was humbled by the amount of support shown to him not just in the immediate area, but throughout Eastern On-

tario. “I’m really amazed at the support of the community,” he said. “It’s overwhelming. It’s a true testament to just how many good people there are in the world.” One of the big questions he is facing is whether or not to rebuild his farm. He said he is at the age where many of his friends and colleagues are thinking about retiring.

In many ways, rebuilding the farm would be like starting from scratch. “I have to do more research,” he said. “It’s a life changing decision. If I decide to back at it, and that’s what my heart wants to do, then absolutely. But I have to make the numbers work and make a business decision.”

Ruiter said that he is humbled and strengthened by the generosity and support of the community in the aftermath of the tragic fire. “It’s the wind beneath my wings,” he said of the support from the community. “It’s pushing me along. It’s the drive. This is the community just going ahead, and it’s a little

overwhelming.” A GoFundMe campaign started to help raise money to support the family has raised more than $54,000 to date. Campaign organizers are hoping to raise $150,000 for the family. The page can be found online at https://www.gofundme. com/ruiter-family-barnfire-recovery.

Task Force on Revitalizing Manotick’s Core defines three priorities for village The Task Force has held three meetings which have focussed on information gathering and defining three key priorities for their work moving forward. Information gathering has included a review of existing reports and recommendations that pertain to the Village Core. There are several studies and reports by a variety of groups that date back to 1997. Many of the recommendations have been implemented although some of the issues remain the same: how to keep businesses in the Village, how to make the Village economically vibrant, and how to improve walkability and access throughout the Village, to name a few. As a result of the document review and discussion, the Task Force has also learned some key information. For example, the vacancy rate for commercial space is among the lowest in the BIA areas within Ottawa. There are about 125 businesses in Manotick and over half of these are in the professional, health care, automotive, financial services or real estate. There is little residential rental accommodation within the Village core for singles or families. After discussion about the many areas that could be considered in a plan for revitalization, the Task Force has decided to focus on three key areas: 1. Economic de-

velopment – this could include how to enable businesses to thrive in the village core and how to fill the vacant commercial space 2. Liveability – this could include how to make the village more walkable and accessible as well as attractive to renters and homeowners of all ages 3. Rebranding – developing a new brand that will support the actions to be developed in the first two priorities The Task Force includes representatives from the BIA and the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association, Councillor Scott Moffatt, and resident volunteers from the community. Each member brings a different area of expertise to the Task Force.

Membership, events, the municipal budget and transportation were the topics of discussion at the Board’s monthly meeting in October. The Association currently have just over 500 members, with many members renewing for a two-year term.

your membership, now is a good time to do it. A single membership is $10 per year and a family membership is $15. You can do it online through our web site at ww.manotickvca.org The Association has completed a busy summer with its annual Soap Box Derby and Picnic in the Park as well as a booth at Taste of Manotick. All of these events were well attended with a full slate of derby participants and several hundred people attending the Picnic. Donation jars and the proceeds from a bake sale at the Picnic netted $552 for ROSSS to assist with their programming. Work is already underway on the next event – Shiverfest, the annual winter carnival slated for January 26-28. The MVCA has submitted its budget request to Councillor Moffatt for consideration. It is focussed on sidewalks and road safety measures. The next opportunity to comment on the City’s budget will be the November 23 meeting of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee. The Board also heard a report from John Harrison on a recent Transportation Equity Summit organized by the Healthy Transportion Coalition. It featured presentations and panel discussions on a

number of community initiatives relating to transportation. One of the areas of interest was the opportunity to partner with The Council on Aging on a walkability audit of the Village Core. The Council has developed a four season checklist to assess how easy it is to navigate walkways and will work with community organizations to facilitate an audit. We are looking into the feasibility of doing an audit in the months ahead.

meeting of ARAC will be at our regular place and time, Thursday at 10:00am at Ben Franklin Place in Centrepointe. The agenda has more items than usual including a few carried over from last month’s meeting which were deferred. Agenda items include: • Zoning By-Law Amendment: 8089 & 8165 Franktown Road • Zoning By-Law & Official Plan Amendment: 1346 Bankfield Road • Zoning By-Law Amendment: 3315 Shea Road • Zoning By-Law Amendment: 2980 Colonial Road (Cumberland) • Carp Airport Development: Infrastruc-

The lot that includes Dan Murphy Ford has been expanded and this zoning application adjusts the zoning to meet the new lot configuration. The Franktown and Shea Roads applications are new developments in Goulbourn. The municipal drains on the agenda are reports that will see a drainage engineer appointed to review the current status of these

drains and prepare a report to review any proposed improvements. However, the report on the Burnett Municipal Drain is to abandon that drain. You may notice that some of these drains are location in urban wards. ARAC has full carriage of all municipal drains across the City of Ottawa so even ones located in the urban area come to our committee.

Messenger Editorial

We must rethink our approach to battling opioid abuse Thirteen Canadians a day were hospitalized for an opioid overdose in 2014-2015, according to the Canadian Institute of Health Information (CIHI), and the rate of opioid poisoning hospitalizations has been steadily rising. What began with the over-prescription of opioids such as OxyContin, a painkiller once thought to have a low potential for addiction, led to the diversion of legal drugs to the illegal market, and later to the dramatic expansion of the illegal production of fentanyl. As the horror stories of addiction and death multiply, it is clear that what was once a medical issue is now a population health crisis. We have had little success in dealing with this crisis because we focus on it in terms that fail to understand it as something other than a problem with illegal drugs. Seizing fentanyl shipments as they arrive in Canada has done little to interrupt the supply on the street. We supply police and other first responders with the opioid antiPage 6, Manotick Messenger, Wednesday, June 23, 2010 dote naloxone and ask it be used to keep the addict/offender alive so that they can, in all likelihood, be processed into the criminal justice system.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY MacLeod hoping Nick’s Law will become a reality by May, 2018 By Charlie Senack If Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod has her way, a private member’s bill she introduced on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at Queen’s Park, will be law before May 2018. That’s when the next provincial election is expected to be called. Nick’s Law, as she has coined it, is named after Nick Cody, an 18-year-old teen from Nepean-Carleton who died in 2013 from a drug overdose to MDMA. MacLeod decided to name the bill after Nick because the Cody’s were the first to come into her office as a newly elected MPP to find help for there child. “The Cody’s we’re the first to come into my office in 2006 when their son Nick was dealing with a drug addiction,” said MacLeod. “That was the first time I realized we did not have the treatment facilities or the detox facilities in our city.” MacLeod dealt with the issue before in Manotick. At that time people were stealing opioid patches and were smoking and inhaling them. “I worked with the Royal Ottawa and we were able to create something called the Opioid Resource Centre for our region in Eastern Ontario,” said MacLeod. “I thought naively that we made some significant change here and this was all dealt with.” After a recent spark in

opioid related deaths this year, MacLeod realized the issue was not dealt with. In the spring MacLeod reconnected with the Cody family and started to create Nicks Law. If and when the bill is passed, the hope is that the government will dedicate 10 percent of its marketing budget, about $5.6M per year, to opioid education and awareness. “Nicks Law is a proposal that has been put forward that would basically take 10 percent of the provincial marketing budget (about $56 million),” said Nicks father Steve. “(It would) use 10 percent ($5.6 million) to educate people and make people aware of opioids and fentanyl which I think is extremely important.” MacLeod feels the bill is important because the government has already Nick Cody, left, pictured with his father Steve, died from a drug overdose in 2013 put millions of dollars in “I don’t think he would You have to do something support the #NicksLaw funding towards other coming addictive.” The biggest concern be surprised,” said Steve. about it and that’s what should sign the online projects. petition at www.Nick “$5.6 million went into now is with Fentanyl that “You can’t just sit back we do.” Residents who wish to sLaw.ca.

Thank You

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the overwhelming support shown to our family after the devastating farm fire that destroyed the machine shed, heifer barn and dairy barn on September 8th. At this time, we would like to say a special thank you to the local farmers, our family and friends who helped us the day of the fire and the following Monday and Tuesday with the clean up. In addition, thank you to the farms that are generously housing our remaining cattle that have been displaced. Unfortunately we cannot thank everyone individually as we had an amazing outpouring of support from our family, the community, fellow farmers, city folks, rural communities, parishioner’s of St. Monica’s, neighbouring associations, local schools our children attended and people from across the province. Thank you for the phone calls, cards, letters, visits, prayers, food, gifts and financial support given to us. We would also like to thank the organizers of the Gofundme page and the organizers of the Blackrapids Farmfest event.

ITR’s ‘Shorthanded – A Ladies Game’ opens to sold-out audiences one another. It’s a great group and I’m relishing the experience.” Russell’s Pam Masey, also new to ITR, plays Candy, the rookie on the team. She added: “Right from the first time met the directors and producers, their professionalism and love for what they do was evident. I was welcomed with open arms and felt right at home. I continue to be impressed with the level of organization and commitment that goes on behind the scenes. The expertise is abundant, and so is the teamwork. I get to work with a funloving, talented cast of ladies who have made me feel welcome. This entire journey has been a gift!” There are also firsts behind the scenes. Sound man Sean O’Malley has acted in two ITR plays but this is his first time at the controls. He is really enjoying ITR’s new sound cue system that offers a great opportunity to be creative. Assistant Director Helen Visbach has been ITR’s wardrobe mistress for many years and has now taken on more responsibility. She commented: “Although I have no desire to be on stage, I wanted to learn more about what goes on … ITR supported me in this. The director of this play is an excellent mentor and I am

learning so much.” And Louise Lagacé, formerly props mistress, said: “Producing for the first time made me aware of the tremendous amount of time and energy that is needed to produce a play. I am impressed with the dedication and enthusiasm of the whole team!” We also have some first-time surprises for the audience in the form of cameos at each performance by well-known local figures. We will be selling Big Rig beer and Wayne Gretzky wine, in keeping with our hockey theme, for the first time. And Canadian hockey great Hayley Wickenheiser has recorded an original audio clip that will be featured during the show! Tickets to “Shorthanded – A Ladies Game” can be purchased on-line at http://itrtheatre.com/ tickets.html or by calling

613-800-1165. Even if you have never seen an ITR show before: let this be a first for you too!



The ITR Theatre Company is 44 years old but is not sitting on its laurels. This fall, ITR has many “firsts” to excite its audience. The foremost first is the play itself. “Shorthanded – A Ladies Game” was written expressly for ITR by Canadian playwright Michael Grant. ITR is presenting the world premiere performance of this hilarious and heartwarming comedy on October 20th and Oct. 21st at the Osgoode Community Centre, both to sold-out audiences. Performances follow on October 27th (7:30 p.m.), 28th (dinner theatre, 6 p.m.) and 29th (matinée tea, 2 p.m.). And this is ITR’s first play set in a women’s hockey dressing room! Two talented cast members have joined six ITR veterans for the first time. Andrée-Cybèle Bilinski, who plays the elegant left-winger Weller, travels all the way from Gatineau to Osgoode for rehearsals. She said: “It was time to set foot on stage again after 12 years when I saw the audition notice for “Shorthanded – A Ladies Game”. The characters were all women around my age and hockey players! That would indeed be a first! Our rehearsals have been so much fun. We energize

Manotick Women’s Day to be held Saturday, November 4 Manotick’s business community is preparing for one of its busiest days and most successful events of the year, as Manotick Women’s Day takes place Sat., Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is one of

the Manotick BIA’s signature events of the year. It will include seminars, in store specials, refreshments, entertainment and free gifts. “It’s an event where women can bring their

friends, mothers and daughters to browse, shop, learn and unwind,” said Manotick BIA Executive Director Donna Smith. The first 1,000 women to come to the village for Women’s

Day will receive a free gift from the BIA, presented by the Manotick firefighters. The gift this year is a special Canada 150 tree ornament. The passport program is also back, where women can get a Women’s Day passport and collect stamps at participating businesses for the chance to win prizes. The passports will be available at participating businesses and from the firefight-

ers handing out gifts. Smith added that while the popularity of the event in the region has grown, it is a great event for Manotick residents as well. “Many women from the village will invite their friends or family members from neighbouring communities to come and spend a great day in Manotick,” she said. The timing of the event is perfect for lo-

cal retailers. If it doesn’t kick off the Christmas shopping season, it certainly kicks off the Christmas idea season. “Our objective is to get people to come into our stores and see the different things our businesses have to offer,” Smith said. “Hopefully they will plan a second trip to come back and make purchases or to become regular customers at our stores.”

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 soldier. 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 describing 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 Lieutenant-Colonel, 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.

Lest We Forget

‘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.

The MessengerFOCUS ON YOUTH Music is more than a passion for OTHS grad studying in Winnipeg

Name: Miriam Carpenter


Age: 18


Address: Osgoode School: “Graduated Osgoode Township High this past June, and now into my first year of university at Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg.” Parents: “My mother Grace Carpenter and father Ian Carpenter.” Sister: “My only sibling is my sister Elsbeth, who is two years older than me. Her nickname is Elbie. She is studying Recreational Therapy at Brock University and is going into her third year.” Pet: “My dog Tansy is a small golden fluffy dog who is very friendly and loves all kinds of treats! She’s a mixture of a poodle and cocker spaniel.” Pet Peeve: “One pet peeve that I have is when people do not put in the effort or energy to get what is possible for them. This annoys me, because they’re not using their full capabilities. They are wasting what they were given, while others work so hard to get what they have. They don’t even try. I can really appreciate someone

by Phill Potter

who gives their everything to what they are doing, never give up, and are always looking for ways to improve.” Part-time Work: “I worked this past summer at Merrywood Easter Seals Camp near Perth as a Counsellor for children with physical and/or mental disabilities. I also worked there as a sailing instructor towards the end of the summer.” Favourite Subjects: “One of my favourite subjects at OTHS was Music, because of my great love for playing music and learning new techniques, and also listening to all kinds of music. I also really enjoyed Personal Fitness that I took in my senior years of High school, where I would work on my own personal fitness goals and strengths.Link Crew was another course that I took in my senior years. It’s a leadership course that helps to engage grade nine students as they come into high school, giving them helpful advice, and also

Accomplishments: “ I’ve passed a very high level of Royal Conservatory Piano. I completed my grade 8 piano exam, as well as the Advanced Theory test this past year. I worked very hard to be able to reach that level in my music lessons, and I’m hoping to continue to improve in the future. Throughout my high school career I achieved the Double Blue Award for all four years, which means that I had an 80 or above average. This is something I’m very proud of and worked very hard to get. I took years of courses and training to be able to become a Certified Lifeguard.” Activities/Interests: “In high school I was involved

in many committees and clubs. I was part of the Relay for Life committee for all my years of high school. I really enjoyed planning and raising money for such an amazing charity, and making a difference to help fight cancer. I’ve been affected by cancer in my family and life. So, to be able to have this opportunity was very close to my heart. Throughout my high school career I was very involved in my school Concert Band as the head clarinet, along with my good friend Sarah Shipley. I really enjoyed all my times in band. I loved improving my musical skills and playing music with all my friends. I was part of the OTHS Music Council (grades 9 to 12) where we planned how we would fundraise for the school band, plan different music events for the school and community and music trips around the world. An example of this is when we went on the band trip this past March to Germany and Austria. We toured Munich, Salzburg, and Vienna; seeing all the sights and taking in the diverse musical history of those cities and countries. I was also involved in the OTHS Student Council as a regular member for a

few years. I would help to plan school events, bring up the overall school spirit, and get students involved in our school.” Activities and Interests Outside of School: “I’m very heavily involved in my church and youth group. I go to the Metropolitan Bible Church in Ottawa, and have attended there for a few years. I attended the Met Youth there, as a student and a Student Leader for the past 2 years. My time there has been so amazing. It has helped me to grow in my faith as a Christian, and as a Student Leader to help other students grow as well. I played the Clarinet for 3 years with the Met Orchestra, alongside some of my friends. This past year I also got involved with the Sunday School Program, where I taught a small group of young children.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I really wanted to make a difference in my school. I couldn’t sit back and do nothing! I made so many great friendships in all those committees, improved my leadership abilities and learned so much. I found that I also just really enjoyed the atmosphere and positive place of those clubs. All the people were

Miriam Carpenter said she “really wanted to make a difference in my school” when she was a student at OTHS. Phill Potter photo

amazing. I found myself drawn to them and never wanted to leave!” Career Goals: “I’m attending Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg, where for my first and second year will be studying a Bachelor of Music. I plan to audition and get into the Music Therapy Program for my third and fourth year. After that I would do a one year internship, possibly back in Ottawa, and then I would be a certified Music Therapist.”

I really enjoy learning about ancient civilizations and what humans have done in the past, and learning from our own mistakes. I find all history fascinating and very interesting.

The MessengerJUST FOR FUN


ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20

Creativity will help you achieve much this week, but it’s also important to maintain a practical outlook. These two factors combine for a greater measure of success.


Apr 21/May 21 Romance is on your mind this week and you have to find a way to fit it prominently in your agenda, Taurus. If you have been busy lately, slow down to spend time with a loved one.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21

Home may feel like a personal retreat after the last few weeks you have been experiencing, Gemini. If you need rest, take it. It’s not a sign of slacking off.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22

This week you are bogged down by menial tasks and hope that something more exciting will come your way, Gemini. If you play your cards right, the weekend could be a blast.



Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, a financial boost may compel you to go on a spending spree. Just be sure you keep track of those purchases so you do not go overboard.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22

Virgo, your confidence peaks this week and you take a leap of faith in a new arena. It may be a new job or a thrilling hobby. Travel is another option that may require bravery.

Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box.


Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, mingling can bring out the best in you, so get out there this week as much as you can. Show off your people skills and converse with people from various walks of life.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, this may be the best your social life has been in a long time. If you have opportunities, try moving in different social circles by joining clubs or becoming part of a volunteer group.


Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, your desire for adventure could soon see you booking a cruise or taking a trip around the world. For now, there’s plenty to keep you occupied at home and work.


Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, explore new avenues in your life, even if it makes you feel a little nervous to branch out. You might be surprised with what you find if you give things a try.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, research all of your options before making a big decision. Figure out the details before you make any changes that could have long-term effects.


Feb 19/Mar 20 Try to exercise more vigorously and regularly this week, Pisces. Not only is it good for your body, it’s good for relieving stress..

ARAC approves zoning for Regional Group’s Riverwalk subdivision Ottawa’s Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee has approved a zoning amendment that will facilitate the creation of the Regional Group’s planned subdivision, Riverwalk Manotick. The site is located on the east side of Manotick Main Street, north of Kelly Marie Drive, and adjacent to the Rideau River. The site is comprised of three existing lots, 5721, 5731 and 5741 Manotick Main Street. There is one detached home located at 5721 Manotick Main Street, while the other two lots are vacant. The lands have an area of about 6.3 hectares.

“The community as a whole is okay with it, but the direct neighbours have some concerns,” said Rideau Goulbourn Councillor and ARAC Chari Scott Moffatt. “I have met with the City and with Regional, and as well with the Kelly Marie Drive residents. There are four points of concern, and they are being addressed.” The proposed subdivision will include 45 bungalow townhomes and 37 detached dwellings, which include five waterfront lots. The existing home will be retained and included in the subdivision planning. Access to the homes will be provided by a

“There are people who think that growth is the worst thing in the world,” public road network having access from Manotick Main Street. Additional emergency access will be provided from Kelly Marie Drive. The subdivision will have access to public services (water and sanitary). A separate block north of the park block has been set aside for a sanitary pump station, a servicing feature required by this plan of subdivision. A public meeting on the subdivision and presentation by the Regional

Group was attended by more than 100 people in January. One of the concerns of the proposal has been its density, which falls within the guidelines set out in the Manotick Secondary Plan. “The zoning meets the maximum density targets as set out in the Manotick Secondary Plan,” said Jeff Ostafachuk of the City of Ottawa. One of the opponents of the subdivision is

Jim Gascoyne, who lives across the Rideau River from the proposed subdivision on the west side of River Road. Gascoyne voiced his concern over the plans at the public meeting, and was registered as a speaker at the ARAC meeting. “I am declining the right to speak based on the plan to take it to the OMB (Ontario Municipal Board),” he said. Gascoyne added that he wants to be on the record as opposing the plan. Moffatt added that the application by Regional Group had been altered to reflect changes made after discussions with neighbours of the pro-

ject. He also said he is not concerned with the plans going to the OMB. “This plan has 12 units per hectare, but the Village Walk has 35 units per hectare,” Moffatt said. “Also, they are all bungalows. Everything with this project falls in line with the Manotick Secondary Plan.” Moffatt also said that growth, like the proposed subdivision, is not always a negative thing. “There are people who think that growth is the worst thing in the world,” Moffatt said. “We need people to spearhead growth. If it wasn’t for growth, none of us would be here in the village.”

Sorensen, Ben, Q.C. It is with love and sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Ben Sorensen, QC, at home on October 11, 2017 at age 88. Dear husband of Joyce Sorensen (nee Hart), who predeceased him in 2014. Loving father of Michael (Lucy Vettorel), Jean (Dale Edwards) and Gordon (Elizabeth Coyle-Camp). Cherished grandfather of Gordon’s daughters Shauna and Maisie and of Mike’s son Paul (Selen Umul) and their daughter Jovi, and step-daughters Anna and Angie Dumoulin. The family would like to thank the staff of Orchard View on the Rideau in Manotick for the excellent care they provided. Ben led an active and interesting life. He was born in 1928 in Glostrup, Denmark and came to Canada with his parents, four brothers and his sister just before the war in 1939. He met the love of his life, Joyce, in Halifax in 1950 while serving in the Canadian reserve navy in which he achieved the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He attended Queens and Dalhousie universities and was called to the bar in 1954, practicing law in Kingston, then in Ottawa for 43 years. With Joyce he raised his daughter and two sons, giving them an excellent role model and offering them every opportunity to succeed. He was a generous and fair man with a strong work ethic in his career and in his many other pursuits. He could make anything, from knitting sweaters for the entire family, to building homes, stone walls and beautiful furniture. He was a great writer, a highly practical thinker and was passionate about the piano. He loved adventure and animals. Most of all, he loved his wife and his family, and did them all proud.

Former Ottawa South United player Kris Twardek became the first OSU alumni to play for the Canadian Men’s National Team last weekend in Houston.

Twardek becomes first OSU grad to play for Canadian national team Ottawa South United Soccer Club is pleased to announce that Kris Twardek became the first OSU Alumni to feature for the Canadian Men’s National Team this past weekend in Houston, Texas. Twardek, who joined OSU at Under-9, has spent the past four years with Millwall F.C. of England. Kris began his journey with trips to Everton F.C. at 12, as part of our club affiliation before signing on with Millwall when he turned 16. During this time, he was first called into the U17 Czech Republic National Team, and then later brought into the U20 Canadian Men’s National Team

before receiving his full call-up against El Salvador this past weekend. He also happened to be the youngest player in the squad, hopefully a good signal for a bright future and career ahead of him. For the coaches and club officials who have had the privilege of watching Kris’s development over the years this is a very special moment. “It is good to see Kris being recognized by the National Team staff and kudos to them for giving him the opportunity to come in and impress. He has always been a player who sets the tone of hardwork and dedication to self-improvement every time he steps on

the field. We look forward to monitoring his continued progress with Millwall, and Canada moving forward,” noted Club Technical Director, Paul Harris.
