Backyard barricade in splinters after snow removal Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - When Terry Currie looked out his upstairs’ window on Dec. 30, he saw a large gaping hole in his backyard fence. His house at the corner of Cedarock and Bridgestone drives was missing two sections of his wooden fence – still spread across his backyard in broken splinters. Plows had been piling snow against his fence to clear the sidewalks and either the weight of the snow or the plow itself must have broken the fence, said Currie. “I don’t know how he knocked it down,” said the

52-year-old Bridlewood man. He worried about letting his pug, Alfie, in the backyard. Having suffered a stroke last May and a seizure this past December, Currie couldn’t take the dog out himself. The seizure caused him to lose his hearing, which is why he didn’t hear or notice the fence break until he looked out his window. “With all the stuff that happened in 2013 – the stroke, the seizure, my dad passed away last night – there can’t be anything more. That’s it,” he said. Last year, Currie spent 200 days in the hospital and had to relearn basic tasks such as eating and dressing. “I’m doing speech therapy, occupation therapy,” said Currie. “I’m getting better.” Currie, currently on leave from his job as an off-ice official for the NHL, took photographs of the broken fence and called the city to report the incident. The city assessed the damage, put up a temporary chainlink fence and removed the piled snow the following day, he said, adding the city said it would repair the fence in the spring. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said Currie did all the right things when it comes to making a claim. “If there’s damage from a plow, obviously you want to get some pictures.”

Snow plow mishaps rare: Kanata South councillor Continued from page 1

“If it’s a city plow you can make the claim with the city and they’ll come out and inspect it,” said Hubley. “We get lots of reports of damage but often it’s (done by) contractors. But if you make a claim we’ll do our best to look into it.” The city generally only operates plows on main streets, while contractors are brought in for side streets and sidewalks, said Hubley. If it’s discovered the damage was inflicted by a contractor, then they will be held accountable, he said.

Hubley added that councillors aren’t allowed to get involved in the claim process since it’s a legal issue. “I don’t actually get to know how often that happens in Kanata,” he said. “From what I’ve been told, it’s not all that common.” Last winter, a sidewalk plow contractor damaged all the newly planted cedar hedges along Stonehaven Drive near the roundabout by blowing snow and salt on the saplings, said Hubley. He added that the trees will likely be replaced this year. To file a claim with the city, call 311 or visit ottawa.ca.

Terry Currie filed a claim with the City of Ottawa after a sidewalk plow caused two panels of his wooden fence to collapse.

Five energy-saving tips to warm up to winter 1. Program your thermostat

Splinters of fence sit in the snow in Terry Currie’s backyard. The city installed a temporary fence until it can be properly repaired.

A properly set programmable thermostat can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 10 per cent. In the winter, set it to 20°C when home and 18°C overnight or when away.

2. Reduce drafts

Caulk, seal and weather-strip windows and exterior doors. You can reduce your home heating and cooling needs by up to 20 per cent by eliminating drafts.

3. Look for an energy-efficient furnace

When buying a new furnace, look for the most energy-efficient model. Visit hydroottawa.com/rebate for more information.

4. Service your furnace

Have your furnace serviced regularly by a licensed HVAC professional to ensure it is operating efficiently.

Please join the staff and students of Bell HS as we host our annual Grade 8 Night Wednesday January 15th, 2014

5. Clean your furnace

Replace or clean the filter monthly to prevent the build-up of dust and dirt and keep it running efficiently.

Holiday homes light up the night in Kanata Winners announced in community associations’ contests blair.edwards@metroland.com

Community - It was a Christmas to warm a Griswold’s heart. Nothing garish and not too many homes that could be viewed by the international space station, but Kanata residents once again showed their creative and festive flair last month, lighting up the night to celebrate the holiday season. Community associations honoured the best and the brightest of those who decorated their homes during the holidays, announcing the winners of their annual Christmas lights contests held last month in Bridlewood, Briarbrook-Morgan’s Grant, Glen Cairn, Katimavik, and Kanata Lakes. Judges once again had a tough time picking winners, forced to choose from a wide selection of festively-decorated homes. Bridlewood Community Association

The Bridlewood Community Association announced the winners of the second-annual Bridlewood Decorating Contest during a social event held at the Eva James Memorial Community Centre on Dec. 17. Twenty houses were nominated, a list that was pared down to 10, which was voted on by more than 600 residents on the community association’s Facebook page and website last month. The winners are: • First place: Dick and Sal-

ly Keilty, 27 Forillon Cres., won a $75 gift certificate from Bridlewood Home Hardware. • Second place: Jo-Ann and Dave Mathews, 43 Shetland Way, won a $50 gift certificate from Bridlewood Home Hardware. • Third place: The Belford family, 19 Steeple Chase Dr., won a $25 gift certificate from Bridlewood Home Hardware. “It was really hard to pick,” said Margaret Kellaway, president of the community association. “I want to thank everyone that participated who made this cold dark season brighter.” Voting was fast and furious this year, said Kellaway. “You could tell from some of the comments that people knew the houses and were really (eager) for them to win,” she said. “I think it built some community for the streets themselves.” The community association is looking to expand the contest next year, offering more award categories.

Moms helping moms Kanata woman tackles postpartum depression Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - Natasha Rose was feeling extremely anxious, fatigued and overwhelmed after the birth of her second child. “I ended up having a really bad, what I’d call, a panic attack. I didn’t know what was happening to me,” she said. “It was the most paralyzing and debilitating thing I’ve ever experienced. I didn’t know how I was going to take care of my two children.” Mother to Shea, 3, and Camille, nine months, a visit to the doctor confirmed that Rose was experiencing severe postpartum anxiety, a form of postpartum depression. “I’d never felt depressed before,” said the Kanata woman. But she wasn’t able to take part in any of her dayto-day activities. She said she was lucky she has a supportive husband, Kurtis, who helped her through. Although hospitals give new moms a package of information, there’s almost nothing mentioned about postpartum depression – nurses only give a verbal warning, Rose said, adding that although public health nurses call one week after the birth, that’s too soon. One of the biggest misconceptions about postpartum depression is that it happens right away, she said, but symptoms can take weeks or

C

months to show. Rose, who works in the developmental and services worker program at Algonquin College, began researching postpartum depression online, asking questions on social message boards and talking with other mothers. “What I realized in my own personal search is that it’s difficult to find and access resources,” she said. “When you feel that bad it can be difficult to advocate for yourself.

There is hope. In the darkness, there is light. NATASHA ROSE

“These women helped me, they gave me strength.” As she struggled to find solutions that worked for her, an idea popped into her head. She created a Facebook group – Moms Helping Moms with Postpartum Depression – in August to be an online social community of support where people can ask questions and find resources. She shared her own story in the hope that it could help others. “For me, the major (hurdle) was saying ‘I’m not OK’ and asking for help,” she said.

ERASE THE STIGMA

With a background in education, Rose’s goal is to raise awareness about postpartum depression and help erase the stigma attached to the diagnosis. In talking with others, she’s heard more than a few mothers say they were scared to go to the hospital and seek help because they thought their children would be taken away from them. But getting help is the most important thing a mother can do, said Rose. “Find someone you trust so you can say ‘Look, I don’t

“You think people will think and wonder what’s wrong with you. “I felt like if I became transparent it would help other women.” From there, it just took off, she said. She created a webpage and hosted a get together with other mothers. She said she wants to create a free “one-stop shop” for mothers with postpartum depression, with links to resources, articles and suggestions about what helped her. “You can go to one place and find most of what you’re looking for,” she said. “From there it became my mission and my goal.” She said she doesn’t give advice, but options. “The response has been overwhelming,” Rose said. “People are coming forward to share their stories.” Jen Perlin, founder of the website kidsinkanata.com, helped host the get together late last year. The two have been friends since their sons were born on the same day. “When she told me that she had postpartum depression after having her daughter I was really surprised.

News - A Kanata mom is using her engineering expertise to help improve education for children with autism spectrum disorder, Asperger’s syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Natasha D’Souza, who recently received a master’s in technology innovation management, said it was her experience as a mother of a son with special needs that prompted her to work out a system to help him learn social skills. “The medical system is very drug-based,” D’Souza said. “And that wasn’t for us.” There are holes in the education system as well, D’Souza said, adding social skills simply aren’t taught anymore, due to dwindling resources and limited staff. “The metrics are out of whack,” she said. For example, the worker assigned to help her son master skills to keep in pace with his classmates, spends time teaching him how to use scissors. “Is that the best use of her time?” D’Souza asked. So, a little more than a year ago, she decided to use her expertise as an engineer and the unique opportunity her hands-on program at Carleton University offered to develop a product that would guide children and help them to learn social skills – something often lacking in kids with autism and Asperger’s because they don’t know how to interpret fa-

Are gentlemen now an incongruous anachronism, or perhaps just a dying breed of men? Yes, I’m now 65 and still very much enjoy opening doors for ladies, saying: “Ladies first.” I like extending my open hand to assist a lady who’s getting up from an awkward position, or holding out my arm for her when the going gets slippery. Unfortunately, I’m starting to think that I really need to modernize or else become totally self-absorbed like the rest of the world. Some younger women think that my gentlemanly acts are “really sweet” or worse yet “cute,” while others don’t have a clue of what I’m attempting. One evening I removed a young lady’s jacket from the closet so that I could hold it for her. Her terse response was, “That’s mine!” as if I’d mistaken her fuzzy Boho Babe jacket for my own. This did, however, get me thinking – which, I’ve discovered over the years, is often a bad move. I spent some time at a mall, watching younger persons interacting with each other – or not. I quickly discovered that “or not” was the operative phrase, as I can’t ever remember that many men totally ignoring their female friends; at least not since the last time that I went to a sports bar. Of course, women can open their own doors, sit in their own chairs, and may have a better sense of balance than I do. Nonetheless, gentlemen are not chauvinists, although this has been questioned by my 28 year-old daughter. When we do a gentlemanly act, it is a mark of respect and we are simply stating that the woman is a lady. Or is calling any woman a lady today also considered sexist? Since when did equality become a synonym for indifference? A while back, I held my hand out to a female gym instructor as she climbed up off a mat. Her very negative reaction was both swift and surprising. And, yes, of course she’s in much better shape than I ever was, but holding one’s hand out is what a gentleman does. Ladies – err, women – if an older man says “Ladies first” or offers his hand or arm, he is not, by my definition a “dirty old man.” Perhaps he’s just a gentleman. So, are gentlemen just archaic chauvinists that need to be placed in history museums right between knights and dodo birds? I would hope not but I have the terrible feeling that the passing of my generation will be the end of us.

Putting fun back in hockey

O

ttawa rang in another new year with the 15th edition of the Bell Capital Cup. Despite the almost record low temperatures over the past few weeks, it warms the heart to watch children from all over the world gather at arenas across the nation’s capital in celebration of Canada’s game. The five-day tournament provides a welcome economic boost, drawing more than 15,000 visitors to the city, with thousands of hotel rooms rented for the event. The tournament has also raised more than $2.4 million in support of minor hockey and local charities since it began in 1999. More than 6,500 youth hit the ice to participate in the world’s largest hockey tournament on community ice rinks across Ottawa from Dec. 28 to Jan. 1, with the opening ceremonies held at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata. This amounts to 310 teams in 19 divisions for the annual atom and peewee hockey tournament, with participants coming from Canada, China, Japan, Finland, Germany, Austria and the United States. The Ottawa area is always well represented at the tournament, with a number of teams competing for the top spot, including the Kanata Blazers, the Nepean Raiders, the Ottawa Sting, the Ottawa Silver Seven and the Gloucester Rangers.

But this isn’t a competition centred around which team racks up the most victories, or who wins their division – the highlight of the festival is, as it always has been, the lasting memories created for the both the children and their parents. It’s about kids having fun playing games, enjoying each other’s company, sharing laughs and making new friends. The glory of hockey, the reason it’s woven into our national fabric, is it can be enjoyed by girls and boys, men and women, and as those with physical disabilities. Often we forget that hockey is just a game, distracted by our fanatical devotion to professional teams chasing Stanley Cup glory. Too often, we celebrate the bloody fist fights that mark the “competitive spirit� of National Hockey League teams, driven to win precious points to make the playoffs. For fans, the success of a team is marked in the back pages of the paper’s sports section, recording a team’s wins and losses, as well as the goals and assists tallied by players. Concepts such as good fellowship, laughter and fun usually take a back seat to goals against average, plus-minus and power play and penalty kill percentages. Tournaments such as the Bell Capital Cup remind all of us why we enjoy playing hockey, and that’s the true glory of the event.

Making some fearless predictions for 2014

There will be 7,345,187 instances of fearless predictions for 2014, journalists having nothing else to write about over the holidays. 2. The year will begin with a flurry of speculation about who will run for mayor of Ottawa in 2014. Virtually everyone will be mentioned except for Daniel Alfredsson and that’s only because he’s in Detroit most of the time. This flurry will last until people grow tired of it, which will be in mid-February. 3. In mid-February, downtown Ottawa will officially disappear in cloud of construction dust. People will eventually grow weary of looking for it and look for other downtowns to frequent, such as the downtowns of Kanata, Barrhaven and OrlÊans. When downtown Ottawa re-emerges, around 2022, everyone will have forgotten where it is. 4. The same goes for Lansdowne Park. 5. In a related development, enterprising Glebe homeowners will turn once again to a historical revenue-producing activity — renting out their lawns for parking. The more visionary of these will create underground parking beneath their lawns. 6. In March, local sports commentators will demand that Senators coach Paul McLean be fired.

In May, Daniel Alfredsson will announce his retirement from hockey and speculation about his run for the Ottawa mayoralty will resume. This will be immediately booed by Toronto Maple Leaf fans. Pundits will suggest that Alfredsson has no chance, since he lacks many of the qualities of a successful mayor – for example, he does not have addiction problems and he can button all the buttons on his shirt. 9.

RedBlacks, the city’s new Canadian Football League franchise. Team members will have to be helicoptered in because there is not enough parking in the Glebe. On a positive note, Ottawa residents will stop complaining about the team name. As one season ticket-holder says: “At least it’s better than Ottawa BlueOranges.� 11. Ten more outdoor stores and 21 more restaurants will open in Westboro in July. Centuries from now, archaeologists will wonder why all the remains discovered in one section of Ottawa suggest that every resident was overweight and wore hiking boots. 12. In July, the RedBlacks will win their first game, defeating the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Winnipeg coach will explain that his team was disoriented, suffering an identity crisis after moving from the West Division to the East Division and back for the second time in 20 years. Winnipeg sources will also reveal that, because of the success of the RedBlacks, the Winnipeg team might change its name to the BlueGolds. 13. In September, Daniel Alfredsson will announce that he is definitely not running for mayor of Ottawa. Toronto Maple Leaf fans will boo him anyway. As of mid-month, the only officially announced candidates will be Jim Watson and John Turmel.

14. In October, tunnelling workers will accidentally bury the Senate building and a nearby McDonald’s restaurant. Frantic attempts will be made to save the McDonald’s. 15. Later in the month, the city will be consumed by rumours of an early federal election, because there is nothing else to talk about. When the snow comes, election talk will cease. 16. Predictions of a catastrophic snow storm will dominate the airwaves and the catastrophic snow storm will not appear. This will be the ninth catastrophic storm not to appear in 2014. 17. Jim Watson will narrowly defeat John Turmel in the Ottawa mayoralty race. Experts will say the difference-maker was Watson’s promise to find downtown Ottawa and put a casino in it.

Lonliness is a killer, especially in post-holiday season

A

t a time when the majority of us are living in urban centres, it’s profound how isolated our lives have become. The ice storm in Toronto made me acutely aware of this. It was shocking to me the number of people, without power and lacking family or friends to take them in, that ended up in temporary shelters over Christmas. In November, a feature in the Globe and Mail covered the gamut of research suggesting that social isolation – in other words, loneliness – has become a major problem in our society. Ironically, as writer Elizabeth Renzetti pointed out, as our lives have become faster, more connected technologically and more urban, we find ourselves increasingly isolated. And it’s making us sick. “Loneliness, it turns out, is as bad for your health as smoking, or being obese,”

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse writes Renzetti. Among many studies Renzetti cites, she highlights research out of the University of Chicago’s Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience, which has documented the ill-effects of being cut off – emotionally and physically – from those around us. “It shows that loneliness suppresses the immune system and cardiovascular function, and increases the amount of stress hormone the body produces. It causes wear and tear on a cellular level, and impairs sleep,” she summarizes. Renzetti points to another irony: Despite Canadians

being among the most active social media users in the world, these electronic interactions may be making us more lonely, more depressed. They don’t actually replace real live contact, and in many ways they end up making people feel worse about their lives. “Everything is rosy on Facebook,” as one of my friends likes to point out. Renzetti again summarizes the trend beautifully: “Talk to enough lonely people and you’ll find they have one thing in common: they look at Facebook and Twitter the way a hungry child looks through a window at a family feast and wonders, ‘Why is

everyone having a good time except for me?’ ” It’s the barren woman reading about the thriving children of others; it’s the jobless reading about another friend that’s received a promotion. Over the holidays, some of us are more aware of the needs around us. We donate more to the food bank. We make a point of serving at a

usual grind – working, making dinners, running our own kids from one activity to the next, and generally putting others out of mind. This individualism – fostered by everything from the one-car commuter to urban design around single-dweller condominiums and roads rather than parks – contributes to a general lack of emotional empathy, something Renzetti

Social isolation – along with the depression and heart problems that go along with it – becomes more pronounced in the winter months. mission or helping out in a hospice. We visit a recently widowed neighbor and bring cookies. We have parties with our friends and family, should we be so lucky. Then January comes, and many of us are back to our

highlighted in her feature on the issue. But the need doesn’t go away after the holidays – and not just for people we automatically associate with loneliness like seniors and the homeless. Certainly, there R0162274634

are many who are shut out, living in shelters year-round and relying on the charity of others to get them through. But there are also many who are shut-in – among them, if statistics are to be believed, are your neighbours, colleagues and friends. Social isolation – along with the depression and heart problems that go along with it – becomes more pronounced in the winter months. The weather keeps us indoors, close to our computers and away from the real social interactions that enrich our lives and make us feel whole. Simply being aware – of our own potential to get lonely and the likelihood that others feel the same way – may be a first step to putting community interests ahead of our own, to find opportunities to connect with others and ultimately to behave in a healthy way, like the social animals that we are.

Kanata innovation allowing ‘blind’ people to see Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Six months ago, Monique Zellerer finally lost her driver’s licence. It was a slow decline. For 15 years, Stargardt’s disease had been robbing her of her sight. Driving was the latest in a long line of things she could no longer do: reading books, deciphering handwriting and sewing among them. Like many people who are or become legally blind, Zellerer put those too-difficult tasks behind her and adapted to move forward. But in the past month, Zellerer has been able to take up crosstitch to replace an ornament eaten by a dog long ago and has dusted off her sewing machine to whip up outfits for her grandchildren. “In some ways, I sometimes see too much now,” she said with a laugh, describing how her stitches were getting too tiny. Zellerer’s newfound precision comes thanks to a Kanata innovation: eSight eyewear. It would have been almost unthinkable seven years ago for a legally blind person to see like a normally sighted person. Wearable devices for people with low vision existed, but they were clunky, heavy and didn’t process images quickly enough to compare to normal sight.

Laura Mueller/Metroland

Stittsville resident Monique Zellerer purchased eSight eyewear last fall when she lost her driver’s licence after becoming legally blind. The device allows her to regain some of the vision she has been losing steadily for 15 years. The company’s founder, Conrad Lewis, saw that as a challenge and a way to improve the lives of his two sisters, who like Zellerer, lost most of their vision to Stargardt’s disease. That was in 2007. Last year, the company fully launched its eyewear – a black, visor-like device worn over the user’s prescription lenses. Today, almost 100 people who are legally blind

(less than 10 per cent vision) or who have low vision are using the $9,750 devices, said eSight’s president and chief executive officer, Kevin Rankin. The eyewear magnifies images up to 14 times, autofocuses as the wearer moves around and allows for different colour and contrast modes to make things like reading easier. The device can improve vision for

people with poor eyesight resulting from a number of genetic conditions or diseases, including: macular degeneration, ocular albinism, Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, conerod dystrophy, diabetic retinopathy and some forms of glaucoma and retinitis pigmentosa. People with as little as five per cent of full vision have been able to regain some sight using eSight, Rankin said. The number of people who could stand to benefit from the technology staggered Rankin. There are 250 million people worldwide who have uncorrectable low vision and 10 million of them live in North America. “We believe we can make a huge difference in probably half of those people,” Rankin said. The range of feedback is outstanding, he said. His favourite comments are from families whose young children are able to see their parents for the first time using eSight eyewear. “It’s allowing people to not be so isolated from the rest of the world,” Rankin said. Zellerer hasn’t felt isolated, but she has felt held back. “I still consider myself to have a lot of vision,” she said, adding that she can still play soccer even without her eyewear because she has clearer peripheral vision and can see out of the corner of her eye.

Zellerer was training for her second profession as a teacher when she began to lose her sight and by the time she entered the classroom, she would have to get students to read overhead slides aloud because she couldn’t see them. Things like taking attendance were becoming a challenge, as was reading textbooks over students’ shoulders. Reading their handwriting was next to impossible, Zellerer said. “It was just too difficult,” she said. “It was slow and it was just a little more stressful ... Now, I can watch them even as they’re writing and read their work, she said. Kids aren’t thrown off by the eyewear, Zellerer said. “Little boys line up to look at it,” she said. They love technology and to them, the device makes her something of a superhero, Zellerer said. In the future, Zellerer holds out hope that the medical community will find a cure for Stargardt’s disease, but in the meantime, eSight gives her comfort that she’ll be able to tackle day-to-day tasks for years to come. In the future, Rankin said eSight will focus on better integrating the eyewear with other lifestyle technology, such as the ability to sync with the displays of items like smartphones or computers so the images on those screens can be transmitted directly into the eyewear’s display.

Staying in Touch . . . and Market Update

2013 has been a year of milestones and changes. Canada’s overall economic heath has played a key role in keeping our housing market in balance. In Ottawa, overall unit sales are down slightly but the average price (for all type of homes) increased modestly at 1.7%.1 Locally, the market has been unpatterned, some months better than others. We definitely saw the supply of homes increase across the City. As of November 30th, 2013 year to date unit sales in Kanata and surrounding rural neighbourhoods (for all types of homes) decreased 4.1% as compared to the same period in 2012. Historically, the real estate market in Kanata, Stittsville and Ottawa has been quite stable but if the interest rates go up mid 2014, as predicted by CMHC2, then activity in the market place may be stronger in the first six months of the coming year. Please feel free to give me a call if you would like more details on the market, an evaluation of your home, guidance in preparing your home for market, or would simply like to stay in touch. 1 The Ottawa Real Estate Board, MLS® Sales by District & Area - RES & CON Property Classes, Year-to-Date up to November 2013 2 CMHC, Housing Market Outlook-Canada Edition - Date Release - Fourth Quarter 2013

Ottawa’s municipal election 2014 underway All the info voters – and candidates – need to know as campaign season kicks off Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa citizens won’t go to the polls until Oct. 27, but the 2014 municipal election is already underway. The last municipal election in 2010 amounted to something of a housecleaning. Ten new faces appeared around the council horseshoe and six incumbents lost their bids for re-election. In addition to 20 candidates for mayor, a total of 110 people vied for 23 council seats. Turnout in the last election was down: 44 per cent of eligible voters, or 269,547 people, cast ballots, compared to 55 per cent in the prior election in 2006. BECOMING A CANDIDATE

Nominations opened Jan. 2 and will continue until Sept. 12, which is also the final day nominations can be withdrawn. Anyone age 18 or older can run in the election if: • They are a resident of Ottawa

or an owner or tenant of land in the city. Spouses of landowners and tenants are also eligible. • They are a Canadian citizen who is not prohibited from voting by law. A candidate must file nomination papers in person or by an agent acting on his or her behalf. The signed hard copy must be filed at the elections office at city hall or at any city client service centre. There is a $200 fee to run for mayor and a $100 cost to file a nomination for city councillor or school board trustee. Councillors each earned $93,999 in 2013, while the mayor’s salary was $168, 102. In addition to the mayor’s seat and council positions for all 23 wards, school board trustees for the four local school boards (public and Catholic English and French boards) will also be elected. Council must pass a bylaw by Sept. 27 to set advanced voting dates. Any candidates who are unchallenged will be acclaimed on Sept. 15 after 4 p.m.

Nomination papers and all other election information – including a list of nominated candidates – can be found at ottawa.ca/vote. VOTER ELIGIBILITY

The qualifications for electors are the same as for candidates: you must be a Canadian citizen at least 18 years old who is not prohibited by law from voting, and you must be an owner or tenant of land in Ottawa or the spouse of someone who is. The city’s voter list is compiled with information from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. It can be viewed at the city hall elections office or any city client service centre, where you can also fill out an application to be added to the list. Revisions to the voters list can be made after Sept. 2. Voters will need to show one piece of identification that lists your Ottawa address, like a driver’s license or an Ontario photo health card, at the polling station on election day. That can also include a utility bill , pay cheque stub or campus residence documentation. DONATIONS

Citizens who donate $25.01 or more to a municipal candidate’s cam-

paign can qualify to receive money back under the city’s contribution rebate program. The program is meant to encourage citizens to participate in the election. Candidates, their spouses and dependant children are not eligible, nor are corporations or trade unions.

In addition to the mayor’s seat and council positions for all 23 wards, school board trustees for the four local school boards (public and Catholic English and French boards) will also be elected. The rebates start at 50 per cent for contributions up to $100. Donations of more than $100 qualify for rebates of $50 plus 25 per cent, to a maximum of $75. CAMPAIGN RESTRICTIONS

The Municipal Elections Act prohibits incumbent candidates from using public dollars to sponsor cam-

paign materials; however, the restriction isn’t meant to restrict elected officials from routine communication with constituents. Starting 60 days before election day, there is a complete ban on spending taxpayer-funded council office budgets on ads, flyers or newsletters. That doesn’t apply to emergency events, a community issue that arises or an annual community event. City employees, including councillors’ staff, can participate in any election campaign provided the volunteering is done outside of work hours and doesn’t use city resources. No election signs can be placed on private property until Aug. 28 or on public property until Sept. 27. Signs must be at least 50 centimetres away from sidewalks or the shoulder of the street, or two metres away from the edge of a roadway. Campaigning isn’t allowed at voting places; however, if the poll is on private property such as an apartment building, only the common areas are considered to be part of the polling station. Signs are allowed to be placed in windows or on balconies of those buildings on election day. All signs have to be taken down within 48 hours of election day.

Education.

Lifestyle.

After 10 years working in Kanata as a fitness trainer, former Canadian Olympic bobsledder, John Sokolowski, recognized that too many of his clients weren’t connecting the dots between weight-loss and nutrition and, as a result, had trouble reaching their health goals. Many of them incorrectly believed that they could power their way to a specific weight-loss target with high intensity and frequent work-outs alone. What they were failing to grasp is that weight loss is, as John puts it, 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. So, after searching for an appropriate resource to help his growing clientbase, John has opened Ontario’s first Simply for Life clinic at 80 Terence Matthews Crescent in Kanata, just in time for those needing help facing the holiday feasting season.

Simply for Life clinics have been helping people in Canada for years and John was impressed by the simplicity and accountability of their programmes. First, Simply for Life (SFL) uses real food that members have no trouble finding at their favourite grocery or food store. There are no powders, pills, exotic herbs, or rare grains. Nor are there any special cooking techniques to learn, or foreign utensils and equipment to buy. Instead, SFL members receive instruction on how to finally succeed in their health improvement goals: through lifestyle change. SFL team members provide common sense meal-planning that is easy to follow, even with hectic schedules and reduced leisure time.

Equally as important as SFL’s no-gimmick approach to food selection is their helpful practice of accountability. New members are invited to attend the SFL clinic on a weekly basis for a 15 minute visit with their counselor. Any difficulties experienced during the previous week are worked through to help prevent the risk of derailing the client’s journey to health. It also gives members a chance to receive helpful nutrition tips and advice, and reinforces SFL’s tenet of providing help when it’s needed.

SFL is based on the premise that a credible and responsible organization that promotes improved personal health and fitness must advocate for a lifestyle change, rather than a “quick-fix” diet or regimen. To provide even more to their members, SFL also offers stress management as a part of their counseling. Under John’s leadership and in-depth knowledge of fitness and well-being, those who have joined to date are already reaping the rewards and are actually looking forward to meeting the seasonal challenges ahead! You can reach John or any member of the SFL team by calling 613-591-FOOD (3663) or by email at info. kanata@simplyforlife.com. Check them out on Facebook by searching for ‘Simply for Life Kanata’. They are open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. R0012460693

Group mailboxes pose downtown dilemma Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - When Canada Post announced in December that it would do away with doorto-door mail delivery, municipal minds filled with visions of vast community mailboxes crammed into downtowns. The changes announced Dec. 11 mean the remaining one-third of the population that still gets mail delivered to their door will have to head to a more central hub to get their mail. But the communal post boxes won’t necessarily look like the brown-and silver community mailboxes that are such a fixture in the suburbs, said Canada Post. Nor should they, said experts in urban design. “I think they can try, I think if they try that, they’re silly,” said George Dark, a planner with Urban Strategies who the city has hired to define how communities like Centretown, Scott Street and the Preston-Carling area should grow. “Retrofitting into the city is going to take a different mindset,” he said. He urged Canada Post to hire industrial designers and “think through the problem” of what a community mailbox will look like in a dense urban setting. Avoiding the need for outdoor community mailboxes is probably a better solution, Dark said. “I think it would look terrible if these things are just dropped all over the downtown,” he said. “These are going to have to find their way into facilities.” Schools, churches, community centres or even stores could become the new spot for people who live in singlefamily homes to pick up their post, Dark said. PUBLIC SPACE IS PRECIOUS

People who live in the

densest areas, in multi-residential buildings, already have communal mail delivery in the lobbies of their buildings, said Canada Post spokeswoman Anick Losier. Their delivery won’t change. For everyone else in urban areas that were getting mail right to their door, the shift will begin later this year and should be completed over the next five years. “We’re building the new generation of community mailbox,” Losier said. “We’re working on different models right now. “We’re going to do it in a thoughtful way, a way that makes sense,” she added. That will be particularly important in dense neighbourhoods like the Glebe which have single family homes with door-to-door delivery, but no leftover space for a big community mailbox. Coun. David Chernushenko, who represents the area, said the best option might be for Canada Post to rent space for mailboxes in commercial establishments. Otherwise, Chernushenko said, “you’re either going to have to use a piece of someone’s lawn, or a piece of very precious public space.” That was also paramount for Coun. Peter Hume, the chairman of the city’s planning committee. “I think that they have to understand that public spaces, whether in urban or suburban area… are very important,” he said. The dialog could “provoke joy or massive amounts of anger,” Hume said. He hesitated to speculate on how communal postal boxes could be incorporated into urban areas out of a fear of creating either anger – or expectations. “Until we’re dealing with something more concrete, even inspiring the public with something like they might get a post office like the good old

Municipal minds are wondering whether the brown and silver community mailboxes that are commonplace in the suburbs will come into the urban area after Canada Post’s December announcement that door-to-door urban mail service is ending. days,” Hume said, contrasting that to scaring people with visions of “faceless banks of mailboxes.” At this point, there are more questions than answers, Hume said. He hoped Canada Post would engage municipalities in the implementation process as soon as possible. “They need to engage the communities,” he said. “Massive changes to public spaces require a lot of time and a lot of public consultation.” “We’re just in the middle of all of that,” Losier said. No decisions have been taken on what the communal mail facilities will look like in urban areas, she said – but the major consultation is completed, she said. Although there will be

“some form of consultation and feedback mechanism” in the coming months, Losier said, that won’t include any public meetings about what the mail facilities will look like or where they will be located. Another part of the mail transformation will include providing options for where people want to have their mail delivered – perhaps to a location near their place of employment instead of their home, Losier said. GATHERING PLACES

Creating a reason for neighbours to gather or run into each other on a regular basis is widely seen as a positive side effect of something

that has much more to do with the economics of physical mail in a digital world. “There is no question, people would run into a neighbour occasionally more often,” Chernushenko said. “That’s the only upside I can see - it will force some people who are able bodied to go out for a walk.” But mail carriers feel like part of the fabric of their neighbourhood, Chernushenko said, and their door-todoor visits will change the atmosphere of a neighbourhood and the feeling of home. Preventing any outdoor community mailboxes from becoming an eyesore is also a concern. Graffiti taggers will surely find them to be a perfect spot for spray-paint

markings, Chernushenko said. Depending on where the boxes are located, it could create issues for snowplowing, he said. “It is one more piece of street furniture that sidewalk plows have to make their way around,” Chernushenko said. Canada Post is going to have to think hard about what role so-called “junk mail” – unaddressed flyers delivered through Canada Post – will play in the Crown corporation’s future, Dark said. If people can’t dump unwanted flyers into a recycling bin, many of them will end up blowing around the streets, he said. “If you get junk mail in a remote location, you’ll find it stays there,” Dark said.

Incumbent intends to run for West Carleton-March seat Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

News - No candidates signed up to run in West Carleton-March on the first day of campaigning, Jan. 2, but at least one declared his intention. “I am running,” Eli El-Chantiry said during a wide-ranging interview at Alice’s Restaurant in Carp. The 56-year-old Lebanon-born ElChantiry moved to Canada at age 18. He became a businessman, owning the Lighthouse Restaurant in Constance Bay for many years. He still owns property in Ward 5, but now lives in Kanata. El-Chantiry ran for city council in the 2003 election to replace retiring Dwight Eastman. He won on a pro-amalgamation platform, defeating retired schoolteacher Adele Muldoon by 29 votes. Following the June 2007 decision by former Ottawa Mayor Larry O’Brien to resign as chair of the Ottawa Police Services Board, ElChantiry took over. The police board oversees a budget of $280 million. As deputy mayor under Jim Watson, he has represented the city at 150 events. A close friend of former PC MPP Norm Sterling, El-Chantiry said he has been asked by area conservatives to run for the CarletonMississippi Mills nomination against sitting MPP Jack MacLaren. The card-carrying Liberal has also been asked to run for that party, though in both cases he won’t say how well placed those doing the asking are. “I have friends on both sides,” El-Chantiry said. “I had to ask myself, Where is my heart?

File

Incumbent Eli El-Chantiry says he plans to run for the Ward 5 seat in the 2014 municipal election. It’s in municipal government. You have to believe what you are doing, and 85 per cent of your daily consumption or use - things like garbage and water - come from the city municipal level of government. I like that. I like helping people with things like that.” Many observers have pegged El-Chantiry as a mayoral candidate, particularly during the last election when there was no clear right-ofcentre alternative to Watson. This time around, and into the foreseeable future, El-Chantiry doesn’t plan on challenging the centrist Watson. “I don’t think he can be beat,” El-Chantiry said when asked if he would consider it. Election day is Monday, Oct. 27.

Site plan for Norman Street condominium filed Reduction in height from earlier vision fails to stem community opposition Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - A controversial condo proposal in Little Italy is back on city books, but in a different form from before. When Tamarack Homes’ first proposed an 18-storey, 159-unit condo for the end of Norman Street (abutting the O-Train tracks) in November 2012, it sparked opposition from the community. The dead-end street is currently lined by low-rise buildings, a theme that carries over onto neighbouring streets, while access is only gained from a crowded Preston Street. While taller building heights are proposed for select sections of the Carling-Preston community design plan study area, those heights would be located closer to Carling. The process to create that plan, which is expected to be completed early this year, saw residents tout the importance of retaining the low-rise character of residential streets off of Preston. The new plan for Norman Street doesn’t fit the low-rise category, but does come in at half the height previously proposed. The site plan submitted to the city on Dec. 16 describes a nine-storey building that drops to five, then three storeys in height as it approaches Preston. A total of 117 units are contained within the residential building, along with 94 underground parking spaces for residents and 10 visitor spots. The site plan control compliments a revised zoning bylaw amendment and Official Plan amendment. Dalhousie Community Association president Michael Powell said the proposal still doesn’t lend itself to the character and capacity of Norman Street. “Going back to when we started this CDP process, the big thing was preserving the low-rise character of Little Italy,” said Powell. “Side streets in the area are barely a car width wide, and the thought of having nine storeys at the end of a road that’s only eight houses deep is concerning.” The original 18-storey proposal was presented as a transition from the multiple 30-plus storey proposals slated for Carling. That rationale

Tamarack’s plan for this stretch of Norman Street has dropped from 18 to nine storeys, but the local community association claims it is still in excess of the street’s capacity. didn’t fly for residents in the area, as Norman Street isn’t adjacent to the Dow Honda site or neighbouring parcels pegged for high density development. Those sites are all south of Adeline Street, while Norman lies two blocks north of that boundary, surrounded by tightly-packed standalone homes and small businesses. Powell said that the removal of the mews concept in the CDP – essentially a road connecting the dead end streets between Preston and the O-Train line – means that the original staff report’s recommendation of four storeys as a limit in the area holds more weight. The mews concept would have allowed higher densities in that location due to the improved vehicle capacity and access. “There’s already so much density going into the neighbourhood,” said Powell. “Even if four storeys were placed straight across the block, it would be a substantial increase in density.” Between the existing housing stock and proposed condos, Powell

said the community wants to ensure there is a range of housing styles for prospective residents. On behalf of the association, Powell has sent a letter outlining his thoughts to the city planner attached

In the letter, Powell stated the proposal exceeds the CDP’s strategic direction, and is placed in “an unsuitable location for (a) mid-rise.” He went on to say that the top-floor penthouse should be counted as an extra

News - The sight of a school bus parked in a driveway is as rural as a farmer’s field. But it turns out, parking the big yellow buses in Ottawa driveways isn’t actually allowed. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson discovered that after a resident in his ward complained about a neighbour who drives a school bus and parks the vehicle in their driveway. “All those people who park their buses are doing it illegally,” Thompson said. Thompson asked the head of the rural land-use planning department to look into ways to “get around or revisit” the bylaw during a Dec. 5 meeting of the agriculture and rural affairs committee. In Thompson’s mind, school buses are a special case

because they serve children. “Bylaw (services) had to react,” Thompson said. If more people start calling in complaints after learning that parking school buses in driveways is illegal, Thompson is worried it “could mushroom out of control.” The ultimate fear is enforcing the bylaw could put part-time bus drivers out of work, Thompson said. Someone from Stock Transportation, one of the largest local school bus companies, contacted Thompson’s office after hearing about the bylaw issue. “A number of their employees park their buses at home,” Thompson said. “It would be a dreadful situation if in fact this process would not be allowed.” Calls to Stock Transportation were not returned.

Clean furnace system is the heart of a healthy home Community - When cleaning your home this year, why stop at the surface? A home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system – the ‘heart and lungs’ of a house – is often left forgotten. Keeping the system clean and well-functioning is essential to ensuring the air in your home is healthy and safe. CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

• A dirty furnace is a breeding ground for bacteria. Furnaces are easy to neglect. Over time, dust and dirt can accumulate in your home’s ducts or air filters, and these dirty filters can become ‘ground zero’ for airborne germs. • Poor ventilation can lead to moisture and the growth of mold. When the air in your home is too humid, fungus

and bacteria can start growing and releasing spores into the air. This can have health consequences for your family – sensitive family members may begin to experience headaches, itchy eyes and irritated skin. • A dirty HVAC system costs more money. If you use a ‘forced-air’ heating system, dirty filters will force the fan to work harder than it needs to. This can put strain on the system, leading to bigger energy bills and more wear and tear. The Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada maintains a list of qualified contractors who can inspect your home and recommend repairs, maintenance, or custom-built solutions to any problems. To find a qualified contractor, visit hrai.ca or call 1-877-467-4724.

Negative result a positive ending for Ottawa wrestler Devon Nicholson says he has been cured of hepatitis c Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - After a long string of disappointing results, Devon Nicholson finally got the negative he wanted. Nicholson, from Orléans, wrestled professionally and contracted hepatitis C, a life-threatening disease often transmitted through the blood. He has spent much of the past year undergoing an aggressive experimental treatment, loaded with negative side effects. He decided to undergo the treatment after consulting with specialists at the American Mayo Clinic. Called Incivek triple therapy, doctors at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital pumped Nicholson full of heavier doses of the medications normally used to treat his disease, as well as new medications. Side effects can include ex-

treme insomnia, weight lost, mental issues and intense itching. The first time through the 36-week treatment, he had to stop on week 19. This second time around, he made it through the 36 weeks. “It was a nightmare-ish ordeal,” he said. And now his final test results have come back negative for hepatitis C, meaning the wrestler is cured. “That means the whole hepatitis C order for me, is completely over,” he said. “It wasn’t there at three months (after treatment), and it’s not here at six months. He said the only way for him to test positive again would be to contract the disease a second time. The diagnosis made him press the pause button on his dream of wrestling in the World Wrestling Entertainment League – and it made him ineligible. After having to leave professional wrestling, he went on to win a medal at the Olympic trials in GrecoRoman wrestling, before starting his hepatitis C treatment. He hasn’t ruled out returning to the WWE, and would be eligible to try if he passes

medical screening and drug tests by the WWE’s doctors. For now, he’s training with a Montreal-based coach for Greco-Roman wrestling, and will be competing at this year’s national championship. He’s also returning to professional wrestling in May during an event in Smiths Falls. Nicholson starred in Orléans filmaker Max Moskal’s documentary This is Hannibal. In the film, Nicholson alleged that he contracted hepatitis C from another wrestler, Larry Shreve, who goes by the name Abdullah the Butcher. According to Nicholson, Shreve cut him with a blade during a wrestling match, passing on the disease. The allegations have not been proven in court. He’s taking Shreve to court in a case that is due to start March 31. But for now, Nicholson has one negative to celebrate – being cured of the disease that has changed so much of his life. “That was the biggest fight hopefully I’ll ever have,” he said. “I’m just happy it’s over.”

Adding residences on top of the retail units would not only be desirable because they would look out onto one of the area’s few urban green spaces, Dundonald Park, but it would also help put more “eyes on the street” to help reduce any perceptions of safety or crime issues in the area, McVeigh said. Residential units would be better than offices on upper floors because it would help the site mesh in with the residential neighbourhood around it and also ensure there is activity

News - Redeveloping the Centretown West Beer Store into a one-storey commercial building is a missed opportunity, says the local community association president. The developer, Starbank Developments, needs relief from some of the setback and landscaping requirements to reconstruct a one-storey building that will still contain the Beer Store, but will also expand westward into the underutilized parking lot in order to add two more stores. The committee of adjustment will hear the variance application on Jan. 15. “I would like to see something other than a suburban strip mall,” said Thomas McVeigh, newly-elected president of the Centretown Citizens Community Association. “My gut instinct is that they are underdeveloping that.” The association hasn’t viewed the minor variance application or formed an opinion on it, but McVeigh said personally he’d rather see a larger building of around four sto-

Newspapers had many uses in the Depression years

E

ven though the Depression was all around us, and money was as scarce as hen’s teeth, there always seemed to be enough to have many newspapers come into our house in Renfrew County. The Renfrew Mercury and the Ottawa Farm Journal came as regular as clock-work, and the Family Herald and Weekly Star, thick as the sole of a boot, was delivered by the mail man and had something in it of interest to everyone in the family. As well, when Mother could spare the 25 cents, she brought home the Philadelphia Inquirer from Ritza’s Drug Store, just because there was plenty of news in it about her beloved New York. Every paper was read cover to cover. The Renfrew Mercury was a real farmer’s paper, with a spattering of social news, like who had visited who for afternoon tea, and of course, it was full of ads of the stores in Renfrew that were offering not-to-bemissed sales of the week, like long underwear for $1. The Ottawa Farm Journal was just that, a journal for

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories farmers, but offered plenty of news about what was going on at Parliament Hill, enough to cause Father to swear in German when he read it. The Family Herald and Weekly Star came from some far off place, and when it arrived in our mail box at the end of the lane, it was as exciting as getting the new issue of the Eaton’s catalogue. There were puzzles, pen pals to exchange letters with, a pattern Mother could send for 10 cents, and my favourite, a picture to be coloured with crayons. Mother’s Philadelphia Inquirer was of no interest to anyone but Mother. When she was finished with it, it looked like a piece of Swiss cheese. She spent hours clipping and pasting into her scrap books any mention of New York. Every scrap of newspaper,

once it had been read, was saved for another use. The papers were piled in the wood box beside the Findlay Oval at the ready. When the pile got too high, they were moved to the summer kitchen. The soot-covered lampshades on the coal oil lamps were cleaned with bunched up newspapers. This was a job I hated, but since I was the youngest, with the smallest arms, it was my duty to clean them. I hated the feel and the sound, which reminded me of a piece of chalk rubbed the wrong way on the blackboard at Northcote School. It didn’t take long for the first wipe to turn the paper black as ink. By the third wipe, you could at last see inside the glass shade, and by then my hand and arm right up to the elbow were covered with soot.

Newspapers were used to put a shine to the burners of the kitchen stove too. This was done when the fire had died down. Mother would take a blob of pork grease, dab it here and there on the lids, and with a big wad of newspaper, she would clean off the stove. The smell of singed grease would fill the kitchen, and Emerson, to add a bit of drama, would pretend he was choking to death, clutch his throat, and hold his breath until he turned red in the face. The smell would stay in the house until the next time the stove was stoked and the remains of the grease burned away. And of course, Father couldn’t start the fire in the morning without a good supply of newspapers from the wood box. They were scrunched up, the kindling put on top, then the smaller blocks of wood, the papers lit, and the stove was set for the day. The well-read newspapers got a real workout every Saturday morning too. Once the floors had been scrubbed, papers were spread out to keep the floors as clean as possible for as long as possible, which

wasn’t long once winter had set in. To save the braided mats from taking the brunt of the snow off our boots, several layers of newspapers were spread out on the mats at the door, and when they were sodden through, rolled up, tucked back into the wood box to dry out, and then fed into the Findlay Oval, where they sizzled and spit in the fire.

pots, sizzling fry pans, and the white granite tea pot, sitting on the reservoir would be three or four bricks. When we were leaving the farm on a blistering cold day or night, the bricks were wrapped in thick layers of newspapers and then put at our feet in the cutter or sleigh to help keep us from freezing. We never had to just burn newspapers to get rid of them.

Every newspaper that came into the house back in those Depression years went on to another life. It was recycling at its highest, long before the word was ever invented. It wasn’t unusual, if a pair of shoes came in the hand-medown box from Aunt Lizzie that were too big, for a wad of newspaper to be crammed in the toes. My three brothers always used several thicknesses of newspaper folded tightly and placed under their felt innersoles to help keep their feet dry in the winter. Always, when the stove wasn’t covered with boiling

There was a use for every one of them. Every newspaper that came into the house back in those Depression years went on to another life. It was recycling at its highest, long before the word was ever invented. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books? Go to smashwords.com and type Mary’s name for details.

Bircher Muesli a Swiss favourite and deliciously filling Lifestyle - Oats are soaked beforehand instead of cooked in the morning, making it an ideal healthy breakfast for time-starved cooks. While the recipe originates in Switzerland, it makes use of Ontario’s apples, honey or maple syrup and calcium-rich dairy. Preparation time: five minutes. Soaking time: four hours. Serves two.

It is hard to believe that it has been just over three years since our Council began its term. The time has flown by as my Council colleagues and I have tried our best to work together in a calm and professional manner to move the Ottawa forward on a number of fronts. As we begin the last year of our term, it is worth looking back on what we have accomplished so far.

INGREDIENTS

In a medium bowl, combine the oats, milk and cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate for at least four hours or

Reflecting on thRee YeaRs in office By Jim Watson

I campaigned in 2010 on a promise to limit any annual tax rate increase to a maximum of 2.5%. I am proud to say that we beat that target in each successive year: 2.45% in 2011, 2.39% in 2012, 2.09% in 2013, and just %1.9 for 2014.

• 125 ml (1/2 cup) large flake rolled oats (not instant) • 125 ml (1/2 cup) milk • 0.5 ml (1/8 tsp) cinnamon • 1 small apple (unpeeled) • 25 ml (2 tbsp) chopped almonds • 25 ml (2 tbsp) raisins, dried cranberries or chopped dried apricots • 50 ml (1/4 cup) plain or vanilla yogurt • 15 ml (1 tbsp) honey or maple syrup PREPARATION

overnight. Just before serving, dice the apple and stir it along with the almonds and raisins into the oatmeal mixture. Divide the mixture between bowls and top with yogurt and drizzle

with honey. Tip: Vary the fruit according to the seasons. Try other nuts or dried fruit to suit your taste. Foodland Ontario

While controlling taxes, it is also important that we make the necessary investments in the future of our city. We must constantly upgrade roads, sidewalks, sewers and water mains and at the same time provide the services that everyone demands each and every day – police, fire, paramedics, libraries, parks and recreation facilities and programming, public transit, fresh water, waste removal and recycling, and much more. We have found a balance to do just this and also maintain Ottawa’s strong credit ratings. Over the past three years we have had projects of all sizes get off the ground that taken together are beginning to transform our City for the better. We managed to freeze recreation fees for four years to benefit young and old across the city and we have invested in libraries across Ottawa. Brand new recreation facilities have been completed in Kanata and Orleans and another is under construction in Barrhaven to better service our growing communities. In addition, the new Sensplex East will open in the fall of 2014 to bolster our city’s rink capacity for teams and skaters of all ages. On the larger scale, Lansdowne Park will open in the summer of 2014 replacing 26 acres of asphalt with a new urban park and mixed-use facility the city can be proud.

Baby it’s cold outside!

We have invested $340 Million in road, sidewalk, bike lane, sewer and watermain infrastructure through our Ottawa on the Move program. This work has been disruptive for some but it is short-term pain for long-term gain and the more than 400 projects that are part of it will help bring our infrastructure and entire transportation system up to the level needed before the opening of our Light Rapid Transit system (LRT).

But it’s warm in here!

The LRT is the single most important infrastructure project in our City since the digging of the Rideau Canal. After years of delay and false starts the mammoth $2.1 Billion 13km project is now under construction with a fixed-price contract and a route that will transform the way people move around our city. We have secured a world-class consortium of companies to do the work and I know we are all looking forward to the Confederation Line’s completion in 2018. Lastly, we have taken several proactive steps over the last three years to improve the accountability of city council. We have appointed an Integrity Commissioner and implemented a Council Code of Conduct, set up both lobbyist and gift registries, and made it so that Council expenses are posted online. This package of integrity measures has made us more accountable as elected officials and made us a leader in the province and Canada with regards to transparency at the municipal level. Most importantly, we did it because we wanted to, not because of scandal.

Come to Bridlewood Trails - just for the winter. Make some new friends, stay warm and enjoy all the activities that Bridlewood has to offer. Fully Furnished Suites Available ~ Call 613-595-1116

I am proud of what this council has accomplished in our first three years of this term and I look forward to another great year in 2014. R0012496461-0109

Lauren Campbell gets her skates tightened by dad, Greg Campbell. Lauren, sister Grace and her dad jumped at the chance to skate when the National Capital Commission announced the Rideau Canal Skateway opened on Dec. 31.

NCC opens skateway early New guided sleigh rides along the canal offered Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The National Capital Commission ended 2013 with an icy finish - opening the Rideau Canal Skateway for the 44th season on Dec. 31. The opening of 3.2 kilometres of the 7.8 km Rideau Canal Skateway, between Concord and Bank streets, was the earliest start to the season on the world’s largest outdoor skating rink in more than a decade. Marc Corriveau, director of urban lands and transportation for the NCC, marked the opening by raising the NCC flag at the Fifth Avenue gate and rest area. “The NCC, and its skateway operations team, contractors and concession operators are proud and happy to bring visitors and residents of the capital this absolutely unique Canadian winter experience,” he

said. The remaining 4.6 km, Corriveau said, will open in the upcoming weeks, if not sooner. Even though weather dipped down to 20 C on New Year’s Eve, skaters braved the cold to get their first skate in on the canal. Typically, the skateway opens in midor late-January, but Corriveau credited this year’s early opening to December’s cold snap. As part of the official opening the NCC, in collaboration with Ottawa Rickshaws, announced new guided sleigh tours. The skateway first opened in 1970, with a five km skating surface. The success of that first season saw the NCC work at expanding it to the current 7.8 km stretch. Close to 1,500 Christmas trees recovered from Ottawa-area business will be on display in all the rest areas as well concession stands, skate and sleigh rentals and shelters will be located along the canal. According to the NCC, the skateway sees an average of 20,000 visitors every day and

just under a million visits every year. The skateway will also play host for the city’s annual winter festival, Winterlude, as one of the festival three main sites. Winterlude takes place from Jan. 31 to Feb. 17. VISITOR INFORMATION:

Change rooms and washrooms are open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. They are located on the ice near Mackenzie King Bridge, Concord Street North, Fifth Avenue, Bronson Bridge, Dows Lake (on both the skateway and at the Pavilion), Patterson Creek (on land, not universally accessible from the ice) Food and beverage concessions, picnic tables, first aid, skate patrollers, lost and found and skate rentals are also available along the skateway. You can check ice conditions at ncc-ccn. gc.ca/skateway, by calling 613-239-5234 or by downloading the free Rideau Canal Skateway application on an iPhone.

Public Meetings All public meetings will be held at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, unless otherwise noted. For a complete agenda and updates, please sign up for e-mail alerts or visit Public Meetings and Notices on ottawa.ca, or call 3-1-1.

SERVING KANATA NORTH

michelle.nash@metroland.com

City Councillor, Kanata North WALKING & PARKING IN THE WINTER With all of the snow and cold this year, streets have become narrower, so please avoid parking along the road whenever possible – and stick to one side of the street. It is essential that roads are clear enough for emergency vehicles, school buses and garbage trucks to pass through. When snow is forecast, no overnight parking is permitted on any street and it’s smart to keep vehicles off the road in the winter. Pedestrians have a particularly difficult time in cold winter conditions, as sidewalks and pathways are slippery and visibility reduced as they bundle up. Give them space, obey crossing guards, stop at stop signs and do not pass any school bus with its lights flashing, no matter what direction you are going.

PARKING MEETING January 16th at 7 pm at the RRCK, 4101 Innovation: Public consultation on issues along Ayton Lane – and information about how and when you can add parking on your property. Since parking issues occur along many streets, residents from other streets are welcome. I have arranged for a Bylaw Officer to attend to answer your questions and to hear suggestions.

GUIDE FOR SERVICES FOR SENIORS The City of Ottawa Guide to Services and Programs for Older Adults has been prepared to put information on a wide variety of services at your finger tips.

Bingham Park to get artistic in new contest Call to artists released this week for Lowertown community project Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The city will be issuing a call this year to artists to help brighten up one of Lowertown’s oldest parks. Submissions from artists or groups of artists for a $160,000 public art commission for Bingham Park are now being accepted. The winning artist or artists will be selected in early May, with the installation scheduled to be completed by spring 2015. The project was initially proposed as part of the Sussex Drive reconstruction project. With limited streetscape space on Sussex, however, the city asked area residents to help choose another area nearby that could benefit from an art installation. “The artwork will be innovative and forward thinking in its design and will celebrate public art as practiced on the highest level of artistic excellence and complement the park design,” said Nicole Zuger, a program manager for the arts and heritage development. Marc Aubin, president of the Lowertown Community Association, said he encouraged the city to choose Bingham Park because of both its proximity to Sussex and its historic character.

According to Zuger, the vision for the project will reflect these elements. “We had an initial meeting with (the city),” Aubin said. “They were very kind; however, those who attended made it clear that they want to see the area and its history strongly reflected in the art. They also would like strong consideration given to functional art, such as a fanciful gateway entrance.” Citing a difference of opinion on the significance the art project connected with the recent Rideau Street development, Aubin said he hoped this project would connect better

with the community. “I am greatly concerned that our interests will be shuffled aside like they were in the Rideau renewal art project and that this will become an-

other exercise in praising elitist artists,” Aubin said. “However, this time we will have area residents on the steering committee, so I do hope to see some-

thing much, much better this time. I won’t be as patient if I see proposals that have no connection with our area.” Consultation for the project will begin in April, where residents can give some feedback on the shortlisted artist proposals. The artwork, Zuger said, will integrate seamlessly with the site, with space, nearby homes and park use taken into consideration to whatever art project is picked. Aside from adding a bit of art in the park, Bingham Park is already scheduled for some changes. With funding from a local nonprofit organization, the Chance Foundation, and a matching city grant, the park will see upgrades worth about $75,000. Included in those plans are new play structure for older children, more benches and landscaping. Zuger said she has been working closely with the city’s parks and recreation planner for Bingham Park, taking its timeline into consideration. More information about the city’s art renewal projects is available on the city’s website, ottawa.ca.

Seniors building proposed for 800 Montreal Rd. Planning committee to consider proposal on Jan. 14 Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A proposal for a seven-storey retirement home on Montreal Road is among the items on the planning committee agenda on Jan. 14. The proposal for a 180room senior living building is part of a larger redevelopment project for 800 Montreal Rd. Purchased by Canada Lands Company in 2007, the former forestry research building has been parcelled off into four pieces and sold off individually. This development is part of the one-hectare property CLC divided into four blocks, with townhomes to the south and an 11-storey apartment building to the west. The eastern portion of the site has been purchased by All Seniors Capital Care Limited, which is in the process of submitting a site plan proposal to develop an L-shaped retirement residence building. Spokeswoman Marie

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

All Seniors Capital Care is proposing to build a 180-room unit retirement residence on a parcel of land located at the former Forintek forestry research building at 800 Montreal Rd. The development proposal will go to planning committee on Jan. 14. France Lalonde said the proposal aims help fill the demand for more seniors living

in the city’s east end. “We found that there was a greater need in the east end

of Ottawa and the company is focused on providing living residence for people to age in place,” Lalonde said. “The building will have individual units as well as assisted living.” The company owns and operates 22 seniors living residences across Canada, with three projects currently under construction. The Montreal Road project, Lalonde said, will be a great addition, with its close proximity to the Montfort Hospital, shops and restaurants. “We feel we will be a part of a community,” she said. “Being close to the hospital, we see this as a great advantage for seniors.” The company is seeking some zoning amendments,

including a reduction to the minimum interior side yard setback from 7.5 metres to the current city standard of 6.5 metres. It’s also looking to add parking for the building, which Lalonde explained is because many seniors who move in own a car. “We want to ensure there is enough parking for residents, staff and guests,” she said. The building design Lalonde said would be similar in style and size to a couple of the company’s other developments in Beacon Heights and Chapel Hill. “It will look comparable to the other buildings, but we also try to adapt based on the other buildings in the neighbourhood,” Lalonde said. The former governmentowned site at 800 Montreal Rd. is changing quickly. Before purchased by Canada Lands, the original 1950sera building and property served as the eastern base for the government’s forest products laboratory. FORESTRY PROGRAM

The forestry program closed in 1978, and soon after the private forestry research non-profit company Forintek leased the building until it ceased operation in 1994. Canada Lands consulted with area residents in preparation of the type of development for the large area. The administration building was recognized by the Federal Heritage Building Review Office in 1997. All the non-heritage portions of the building were demolished in 2008. Currently of the four parcels of land, three parcels are either under construction or going through the city’s application process for development. The forth parcel, which in-

cludes the heritage building, is still being advertised for sale. Facing Den Haag Drive, an 11-storey affordable housing project is currently under construction. Owned by OCISO Nonprofit Housing Corporation, the project is scheduled to be complete by this summer. After receiving approval in May 2012, Valecraft Homes has constructed townhomes fronting Den Haag and LeBoutillier Avenue. A meeting concerning Valecraft’s second phase of construction for 22 rear-lane townhomes will take place on Jan. 15 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Collège catholique SamuelGenest, room 181. According to Valcraft’s plans on the city’s website, the new phase of development will consist of three buildings. Each will be served by this proposed private laneway, to be known as Matador Private. The buildings will be three and a half storeys in height, with two of the buildings fronting on LeBoutiller and one facing an internal walkway. It is the developer’s intention for Matador Private and the walkway to form the common elements of this condominium. Lalonde said the company is excited to be a part of this large-scale development. “I think its going to be beautiful,” she said. “We feel we will be part of a concept. When people move here, maybe they will live in one of the townhomes, and at some point in the future, move into our building.” “This will give people the choice to stay within the community of their choice.” Both the All Seniors Capital Care’s and Valcraft’s applications are available to view on the city’s development application website.

from the Benson Group

Snowbrush Hitch Ball Covers Utility Worklight ACDelco Winter Wipers

by Brian Turner

The staff and management of the Benson Group, including their automotive specialist teams at over 100 locations in Ontario and Quebec wish to extend their warmest season’s greetings to all their customers for a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year.

the fuel tank near full will reduce the likelihood of gasoline or diesel condensation problems and will add extra weight for improved traction and handling. Please remember posted speed limits are for optimal road and weather conditions only and extra time should be factored in to any winter trek.

With this time of increased travel, busy highways, and less than ideal weather and road conditions, the Benson team wants to remind everyone to plan ahead for trips no matter what the distance. Take extra time to clear all vehicle windows, exterior lights and surfaces of snow and ice. Make sure your auto has plenty of washer fluid, winter tires, and an emergency roadside kit. Pack cargo, luggage, and gifts with care, because, in the event of a collision, anything loose in the passenger compartment can become a fast-moving projectile which can cause injury. Keeping

The Benson automotive stores will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day to allow their staff to enjoy the holiday time with family and loved ones. Your automotive needs are always on the top of the Benson Group’s list and their outlets’ experts will make sure that you have the right part at the right time for the best price available. Roadside emergency kits are available in a variety of types for both commercial and personal use. Please drive safely and give your family the best gift of all; you safe at home to share these special times.

Contest winner puts modern day slavery into perspective Love of writing, social justice awareness leads to award for student Sabine Gibbins

sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

Arts – When I was young, I saw the stars, and drew them with yellow crayon, on the inside cover, of a library book. So begins Mirjana Villeneuve’s poem titled “The Girl Who Cried Snowflakes,” which examines the harsh reality surrounding modern day slavery. It was a subject Mirjana, who lives in Riverside South, did not know much about initially. When the Grade 11 St. Francis Xavier High School student found out about a writing contest being organized through Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking of Humans - Ottawa, she knew she had to enter. Mirjana ended up winning first prize in the creative writing contest.

Her school’s social justice club promoted the contest. PACT Ottawa held their first annual writing contest for an End Slavery Day event held on Dec. 2. Prizes were awarded for the top three winners. Mirjana said she entered the contest because of her passion for writing, and because she wanted to be educated on a subject she knew very little about. “I’m always looking for ways to raise awareness about social justice issues, and this seemed like a good opportunity,” she said. She said she enjoyed the challenge of writing the poem while ensuring her facts were all correct. “I spend most of my time writing or thinking about things I could write about,” she said. “I live to write.” The contest also encouraged the normally shy Mirjana to step outside her comfort zone and read the poem out loud to the audience. “I’m actually quite an introvert, so I usually hate drawing attention to myself,” she said.

“I had to read my poem for everyone at the event, and that was miles out of my comfort zone.” POWERFUL POEM

Sarah Sambles, a member of PACT Ottawa who was the lead reviewer for the contest entries, said the panel chose Mirjana’s poem because it was both powerful and touching. “The reader wants to know how someone can cry snowflakes,” she said. The poet’s writing style caught the eye of judges. “The writing style takes the reader on a journey from an innocent, day-to-day image of a child drawing, in which the writing style is more prosaic, to a more violent and jarring description of the abuse, where the writing style becomes more poetic with the use similes and unusual choice of adjectives,” said Sambles. The poem’s ending is profound; ending with an explanation of what it means to cry snowflakes, she said. “The choice of snowflake

imagery helps communicate the idea that abuse stops someone from being who they are, it ‘freezes’ them,” Sambles said. The contest was launched this year with a mission to encourage young people to learn more about human trafficking, harness the creativity and energy of young people and inspire them to talk about the issue, raise awareness of the crime and help prevent it. Creative writing styles included not only a letter, but a song, short story, personal essay or memoir, or film script/ play. “When it came to judging the contest, we were looking at an original and sensitive approach to the topic, effective communication, engaging, its literary style, written style suiting the medium chosen, and the entry being realistic and accurate.”

Review of community benefit payments on tap A year late, not a full report, but councillors will get info on Section 37 Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city’s planning department will be issuing a long-overdue memo about how its new protocol on developer community benefit payments for upzoning is going. On Feb. 14, 2012, the city’s planning committee agreed to terms that allow it to collect money from builders who want to build large projects (bigger than 7,000 square metres) that are at least 25 per cent taller than the current rules allow. The plan is to put that money, estimated at around 15 to 50 per cent of the property value, towards community projects like parks, affordable housing, streetscaping, libraries or other public amenities.

The city’s use of that community benefits payment policy, allowed under Section 37 of the provincial Planning Act, was to be reviewed after a year. A memo to the city’s planning department expected “in the coming weeks” should finally shed light on how the Section 37 policy is performing. The city declined to give any detail about the review, but confirmed it was overdue. “We delayed a full report on this matter as there were no pressing issues on Section 37 and planning and growth management was generally focused on delivering its updated master plans in 2013,” a message from city staff reads. Media relations declined to provide information on how many rezonings qualified for

the charge since the policy was adopted in 2012, the value of the payments or the developments for which they were or are slated to be collected. That information will be in the memo, the email read. The use of Section 37 in Ottawa hasn’t gone without controversy in the first two years of its implementation. Last April, residents of the Glebe Annex and Capital Coun. David Chernushenko were shocked to discover a Section 37 charge applied to a proposed 18-storey development on Carling Avenue west of Bronson Avenue had been discounted by more than 70 per cent by the city’s planning department thanks to a clause in the policy that allows discretion in the amount of community benefit to be charged. In that case, the community benefit was reduced because the developer proposed building a public pathway through the site to connect Clemow Avenue to Carling, but the

local community association and councillor said they were not consulted on whether they considered that to be of benefit to the area. At the time, planning manager John Smit said the calculation of a Section 37 payment is a negotiation between the developer and the planning department. Through the councillor’s office, the community can provide suggestions of benefits it would like to see, Smit said. But if the developer proposes something different, the city planner on the file can judge whether it would qualify and by how much it would reduce the community benefit payment listed on the planning report. “It’s not a back-and-forth,” Smit said. Councillors also have a lot of discretion when it comes to finding uses for Section 37 money, as recently demonstrated by Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs. After she

“That was way to easy!”

didn’t receive documents outlining community priorities she said she requested from community associations, Hobbs decided to earmark $1 million of future Section 37 money in the Hintonburg and Mechanicsville area for the hydro poles on Scott Street to be moved back in anticipation of eventually converting it into a “complete street” with improved pedestrian and cycling facilities. DEVELOPMENTS

Recent Ottawa developments that qualified for Section 37 charges according to the city’s website include: • 801 Albert St. (DCR Phoenix’s 30/31-storey office/condo towers): Contribution of $450,000 towards the design and construction of a future pedestrian bridge over the O-Train and connecting pedestrian facilities like paths and stairs. • 111, 115 and 121 Parkdale

Ave. and 71 Burnside Ave. (Tega Homes’ Rhombus 32-storey condo tower): Contribution of $400,000 to a recreation and community facility fund for Mechanicsville. • 505 Preston St. (Claridge’s Icon 45-storey condo tower): Contribution of $1.15 million towards a pedestrian crossing over the O-Train tracks at Hickory Street, the construction of a pathway along the west side of the train tracks between Carling and Beech, improvements to Ev Tremblay Park, an expansion of Plouffe Park, streetscape and sidewalk improvements, a public square at Preston Street and Carling Avenue and traffic calming projects • 460 St. Laurent Blvd. (Brigil’s 12-storey condo building): Contribution of $312,000 for the neighbourhood of Cardinal Glen (northeast of Vanier) to provide bike/ walking pathways, tree planting and park infrastructure.

Connected to your community

Busy past and challenging future for Osgoode Ward Joseph Morin joe.morin@metroland.com

News - Osgoode Ward is continuing to grow. New growth brings along with it many different challenges for communities and residents. The new commercial and residential growth for the ward is expected to put unprecedented strain on the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure, especially area roads. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson has been shepherding his community through the many changes it has experienced as well as helping to plan for its future. Thompson is a veteran rural politician who was re-elected to city council in 2010. His ongoing concern for his wardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure has never been far from his mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the big issues is maintaining our infrastructure,â&#x20AC;? he said. As a result of his negotiating with the city and fellow councillors he has managed to secure $12 million worth of infrastructure dollars for his

ward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we only had $4 million,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have worked hard with councillors, city staff and the mayor,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a significant amount of money for the Osgoode Ward.â&#x20AC;? Thompson claims the ward is only spending around 25 per cent of what it should be spending on its infrastructure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were falling behind,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson. Infrastructure in rural areas is composed largely of roads, bridges, drainage ditches and culverts. Osgoode has several hundred kilometres of paved and gravel roads that are in constant need of maintenance. The rural character of Osgoode attracts a great many people who want that particular lifestyle but still need to find a reliable way to commute into Ottawa. In 2013, the issue of when and if the city and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation could come to some kind of agreement about where to build a new casino had the op-

Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson has been shepherding his community through the many changes it has experienced as well as helping to plan for its future. erators of the Rideau Carleton Raceway concerned. Thompson had proposed that the raceway be the only

spot for a casino but his voice was only one of many around the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council table voicing different ideas and opin-

ions about where a new or refurbished casino should be located. At stake were the jobs of between 800 to 900 employees at the Rideau Carleton Raceway and more than $20 million in wages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a big battle,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson. By the time the dust had settled in the casino debate, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson had reversed his decision and the way to protecting the racetrack was clear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a huge bonus for our community,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mayor changed his position and I am glad that he did,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still waiting to see who the investors will be, but at least they will be investing in Rideau Carleton. Another achievement for Thompson was the creation of a human-wildlife strategy for the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have spent a couple of years creating the wildlife strategy,â&#x20AC;? explained Thompson who is the chair of the

agriculture and rural affairs committee for the city and was confronted with an increasing conflict between rural residents and the wildlife that naturally inhabit areas that were subject to urbanization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The process has been finalised and now all that is needed is to put the pieces of the process in place,â&#x20AC;? he said. The result of the new strategy is that the city has an actual process for dealing with any negative interactions with the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wildlife. Thompson said there is much work still to be done in maintaining his ward. Many of the streets in the wardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five main villages are in need of repair. Two groups of investors are looking at developing commercial projects similar to the Manotick Mews in the village of Manotick. Another group is considering building two ice pads in Greely, another indication of new growth and the anticipation of more residential development in the area. See CONTINUED, page 49

Continued growth will reshape An investment of a lifetime and define rural sensibilities There are a few contentious issues to be faced in 2014. Taggart-Miller has proposed a new landfill sight on the east side of Boundary Road. Area residents from Carlsbad Springs, Edwards and the surrounding area seem to be for the most part opposed to the site. The location of the landfill site is in the Cumberland Ward which is represented by Coun. Stephen Blais. He and Thompson has been supporting the “Dump the Dump2” committee. Future challenges for the Osgoode Ward are many, such as the prospect of a loss of voice at the council table as the city considers re-aligning the 23 wards in the Ottawa. At the moment there are four decidedly rural wards as opposed to 19 urban ones. The rural wards are: Rideau-

Goulbourn, Osgoode, Cumberland and West Carleton. “It could reduce our voice at council,” said Thompson. Added to that kind of loss of rural representation is the fact that continued growth will eventually reshape and define rural sensibilities, explained Thompson.

The change from rural to more urban is slowly happening before our eyes. OSGOODE COUN. DOUG THOMPSON

“The change from rural to more urban is slowly happening before our eyes,” said Thompson. Another challenge will

be the utilization of existing pipelines to carry oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan to the east coast. A section of the TransCanada pipeline proposal would cross the Rideau River. A small portion of the south west corner of Osgoode Ward would be affected. Thompson has been a resident of Osgoode since 1967. He was an elementary school teacher for 35 years. He served as a councillor for the township of Osgoode for 14 years during which time he was a member of every municipal committee and community board. He was the mayor of the township of Osgoode for three years (Dec. 1, 1997 – Dec. 31, 2000). In 2000 was elected to the new city of Ottawa council as councillor for Ward 20, which came into being on January 1, 2001.

ample, if you buy your home for $200,000 and sell it 5 years later for $250,000, you do not have to pay income tax on the $50,000 you earned from the sale. Another advantage is each time you make a mortgage payment, you are putting a portion towards the principal balance of your mortgage, which builds equity in your home. This is a better use of your money than giving rent to a landlord and is

a good long-term investment. Owning a home also means that you can make your own decisions on decorating, home improvements, location, etc. When it makes financial sense, buying a home is often a wise, secure and emotionally satisfying move to make.
