EMC News – Jon Lovagi still struggles with his son Dustyn’s suicide. The 20-year-old had so much going for him: a loving family, friends and a place on the Dean’s List at Algonquin College. But one night in 2005, Dustyn stepped in front of a truck on the Queensway, taking his own life. “Dustyn didn’t want to die,” said Lovagi, “But for a brief moment he didn’t want to live.’ Lovagi spent the next six years working behind the scenes to improve youth mental health services in the community. It was only after the highprofile death of Daron Richardson, daughter of Ottawa Senators assistant coach Luke Richardson, that Lovagi gathered the courage to tell his other son, now 15, how his big brother died. “That’s allowed me to be more effective to help youth who are struggling,” said Lovagi, the co-chair of Reach Up, a local advocacy group for youth suicide prevention and mental health.

Former A.Y. Jackson teacher ‘sexually involved’ with numerous students Joanne Léger-Legault pleads no contest to allegations

Joanne Léger-Legault, who taught at A.Y. Jackson and Merivale High School, has been dismissed by the Ottawa public school board. None of the allegations have been proven in a court of law. The school board issued a statement about the case on Monday. “In 2006, the school district received a complaint about a female teacher. The district immediately contacted Ottawa police and a formal police investigation was conducted. Police determined that there was insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges,” the school board’s press release said. “The district then commenced its own internal investigation and took disciplin-

ary action based on the evidence available at that time. The district shared the information from their investigation with the Ontario College of Teachers in the fall of 2006. The College carried out an investigation and the matter was referred to the Disciplinary Committee of the Ontario College of Teachers. “The College received new information with respect to the original complaint. This evidence was not available at the time of the initial investigation. In September 2011, the College issued a decision which recommended that the certificate of qualification be revoked.”

“personal matters” in her classroom and went for walks after school along a bike path. Léger-Legault exchanged numerous “inappropriate” texts and emails with the teen while he attended the school and after he left in 2005. During that time Léger-Legault “engaged in an intimate sexual relationship” with her student, according to the report. In 2005, Léger-Legault exchanged email with another student, identified as Student C, of an “inappropriate personal nature.” She also engaged in an intimate sexual relationship with a fourth student, identified as Student D, while he attended A.Y. Jackson from 2000 to 2004. By pleading no contest, Léger-Legault waived her right to a hearing.

Léger-Legault’s lawyer requested that her name not be published. But the college’s lawyer said the teacher’s name should be published because of the serious nature of the offence and to send a clear message to other teachers and the public “that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated and will receive the strongest sanction possible.” Léger-Legault was an award-winning teacher who was honoured for promoting the French literary arts at Merivale in 2010. Dennis Zhang is Grade 12 student at Merivale High School who studied French in Léger-Legault’s class when he was in Grade 9. He said the news about her actions came as a big surprise. “Wow,” Dennis said as he waited for a bus near the school on Monday afternoon. “I did not expect that.” Dennis said Léger-Legault was “a good teacher.” “She made it fun and she went at each individual student’s pace,” he said. R0011148460

Léger-Legault pleaded no contest to the allegations of professional misconduct filed against her at the Ontario College of Teachers discipline board. A former student at A.Y. Jackson who graduated in 2005 said he was one of the teens who had inappropriate relations with the teacher. The student, who did not wish to be identified, said the teacher supervised his afterschool club at A.Y. Jackson. He said there were more than two students at the school who engaged in inappropriate relations with the teacher from 2001 to 2005. The student said the “rumours” and allegations surrounding the case are overblown, but refused to comment on the nature of his or other students’ relations with the teacher. “It’s been annoying,” he said. “It’s high school bullsh**t.” The student said he’s aware of “more than two” A.Y. students who had sexual relations with the teacher. Léger-Legault taught at Merivale from the 2005-06 school year until June 2011. There is no indication that any misconduct occurred while she was on the Merivale staff. The Ontario College of Teachers discipline board heard the case last year. Léger-Legault engaged in “inappropriate relations” with four male students, according the discipline board. The college says the teacher violated student-teacher boundaries by engaging in

inappropriate conduct that included transporting students in her car, meeting with students outside of the school setting, discussing personal issues, exchanging text messages and e-mails of an inappropriate personal nature, kissing one of the students on the lips and having an intimate sexual relationship with two of the students, according to the allegations. “By engaging in inappropriate relationships with, and sexual abuse of students whom she taught the member committed acts of professional misconduct as alleged,” the decision said. “The member failed to maintain the standards of the profession, committed acts that would be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional and engaged in conduct unbecoming a member.” According to the statement of uncontested facts, a student referred to by the college as Student A was in LégerLegault’s class from 2001 to 2004. The student confided to his teacher about his troubled relationship with his family and that he used alcohol, meeting with Léger-Legault at coffee shops, and from time to time travelling in her car after school. Léger-Legault also kissed him on the lips, according to the statement. A second boy, identified as Student B, who attended the school from 2001 to 2005, met with Léger-Legault at coffee shops, restaurants and her car. They also met to discuss

It’s a community responsibility to help youth: chair REACH UP, from 1

Since then, Lovagi has visited youth and church groups, sharing Dustyn’s story and encouraging both teens and adults to start a discussion about how to help the city’s troubled youth. Reach Up’s other co-chair, Michael Dixon, said Ottawa’s youth suicide rate is on the rise, something he’s noticed from his job as an assistant funeral director. “It would really kind of surprise the general public if they knew how many suicides in this city … involve young people.” The city only hears about the deaths of the children of well-known parents, such as Daron Richardson and Jamie Hubley, son of Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, he said. It’s the responsibility of the community as a whole – not

just parents – to help troubled youth, added Dixon. Dixon said he once saw a survey that asked teens: if they were going through a hard time who were the people they would first approach

to the side,” he said. “When I’m coaching I don’t take that lightly.” Coaches need to be aware of the kids who might need help, he said. “Sometimes you can spot it

for help. The top two answers were a friend, followed by a coach or leader of a youth group. “They have a big responsibility there because kids really look up to them,” said Dixon, who coaches minor midget hockey. “When a player comes to you with a problem or an issue, you don’t just shove it off

and unfortunately sometimes you can’t.” Certification courses for minor league coaches – whatever the sport – should include education about youth mental health, suggested Dixon. “I really enjoyed taking coaching courses, especially with hockey,” he said. “(But) they really don’t spend a lot of time on the

player, how to deal with …different personalities on your team. Maybe there needs to be a section or a little bit of time on that.” Lovagi and Dixon met when they were both pee wee coaches with the Kanata Minor Hockey Association.

perform music at the dinner. Reach Up has also organized a 16-team bantam hockey tournament at the Jack Charron Arena from Feb. 3 to 5, to help fundraise for the youth mental health program. Tickets to the event are $60, which pays for dinner as well as several raffles and auctions. Auction items include Ottawa Senators tickets, a hockey stick signed by Todd White, spa gift certificates and box seats to Disney on Ice. Tickets can be purchased online at www. The organizers hope to raise $10,000 from both events. The advocacy group is also organizing a golf tournament fundraiser in the summer. “I know I have personally been overwhelmed and touched by the response of our city,” said Dixon. “People are getting the message that our youth need help.”


On Feb. 2, Reach Up will host a dinner and silent auction at the Sixty Four Hundred Celebration Centre on 6400 Hazeldean Road in Stittsville, to raise money for the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre to help it develop a youth mental health program. Radio host John Rodenberg will emcee the event, which will be attended by special guests Hubley, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson and Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren.

Frustration ‘palpable’ during rezoning workshop EMC News – Neighbours, friends and residents of the Beaverbrook community gathered for a hastily assembled workshop to deal with an application to rezone the land at 2 The Parkway, on Jan. 24 at Earl of March Secondary School. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson hosted the meeting in an effort to develop a plan for the plot that fits within the community. Due to an error in the Jan. 19 councillor column, which incorrectly identified the date of the meeting at Feb. 24, a number of residents received little notice about the workshop. “Twenty-eight hours notice is no good,” said Andrew Stirling, who lives on Reaney Court with his wife Eileen Howell. The two have been collecting funds from the community to pay for legal consultation and a possible OMB hearing into the rezoning of the lands. “The idea of spot rezoning is fundamentally bizarre,” said Stirling. The developer, Morley Hoppner Group, bought the land at 2 The Parkway, where the old Canada Post Office currently sits empty. The company applied to the city to have the land rezoned to allow for a 16-storey residential building. The workshop was supposed to allow for groups of residents to discuss alternate ideas for the site that would fit within the community’s design. However, much of the meeting gave way to a heated debate about spot-rezoning. “The one success of this meeting is to show the planning process is broken,” said Matt Muirhead, president of the Kanata Lakes Community Association. “The frustration is palpable in the room.” About one quarter of the close to 50 residents who turned out for the meeting left before it was over. “There’s a feeling of powerlessness,” said Muirhead. Some residents submitted their own comments privately to the councillor at the meeting but there was no outward discussion of what type of building would better serve the community. Gary Sealey, president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, said coming up with an alternative plan for the land should not fall to the residents; the issue is with the city and the planning committee allowing for spot rezoning to take place. “We anticipate the same systemic problems,” he said. “Many people are feeling this; something is wrong here. “There’s a lot of people enraged. There’s a lot of concern.” Stirling echoed the sentiment. “The battle is about spot

rezoning. The battle is about bad planning,” he said. COMMUNITY PLAN

Wilkinson said she needs a “composite community plan” to bring to the planning committee or else it’s likely the committee will accept the staff recommendation – which residents may not like. “I know they’re not recommending a 16-storey building, I can tell you that,” she said. A number of residents submitted comments before the

supporting the public until I get the full picture,” she said. “I want all the ideas.” A number of residents at the meeting said they were concerned the developer wouldn’t listen to the alternatives suggested by the community. “We have to come here cynical,” said a new resident to Beaverbrook, who didn’t want his name used. He named similar battles over rezoning in the Glebe and Westboro, communities that lost against the developer. “It’s a flawed process,” he

meeting, but very few made suggestions as to what could be done with the property, she said. “I’m up against real obstacles,” said Wilkinson. “I think we need to be a little more specific.” Under the current zoning, the developer could build a community centre, a day care, a group home, a place of assembly or worship, among many other options. Other ideas could be brought forward, but may also require the city to rezone the land. “We want (the planning committee) to say ‘Yes this will work,’” said Wilkinson, about submitting alternative ideas. “They’re very open to it.” She said that without community suggestions, she can’t take a stand on the development. “I can’t make a decision on

said. Others said suggesting alternatives may weaken their position on spot rezoning. “It’s a sign of weakness,” said Muirhead about making recommendations. He questioned Wilkinson if providing alternatives could “weaken the position of the community” in the future. Her answer was no, but Muirhead said he wasn’t convinced. “People are just really suspicious of the planning at the City of Ottawa,” he said. A number of residents still submitted their suggestions to Wilkinson as to what the developer could do with the site. Included in residents’ recommendations under the current zoning: • A land exchange, possibly with the public school board. • Keep the present building R0011250229


and find a use for it. • Create a community garden. • Build a retirement home or residential care facility. • Construct an educational facility or an extension for Earl of March. • Build a community health and resource centre or a clinic. Included in residents’ recommendations with a change to the zoning: • Create townhouses similar to Callaghan Court. • Build a multi-dwelling building similar to the condos further south on Teron Road, with a recommended maximum of five to 10 storeys. • Construct a mixed-use building that could house residential, commercial and community rental spaces. Wilkinson said she is looking into possibly hosting a second workshop if there are enough residents interested in the idea.

Humane Society offers reward in dead cat in dumpster case Jennifer McIntosh

The Ottawa Humane Society is offering a reward for any information leading to charges in the case of a dead cat found in a dumpster behind an apartment complex on Morisset Avenue. The cat, a female calico, was found on Jan. 20 in a dumpster behind 1411 Morisset. Its back legs were tied together with an electrical cord and a press release from the

Humane Society said it was determined that the cat died from severe trauma. There was internal bleeding and a lacerated spleen and kidney. After a tip from a concerned resident, the Humane Society rescue and investigation service (RIS) agent determined the cat had been put in the dumpster between Jan. 17 and 20. “We checked the OHS lost records and there are no reports of a lost cat matching its

Ottawa Symphony Orchestra music director and conductor David Currie began his 20th season with the OSO on a high note as he was presented with a key to the city. The honour, which was bestowed upon Currie just prior to the start of a 20th-anniversary concert at the National Arts Centre on Jan. 23, was the first of this term of council for Mayor Jim Watson. Watson said Currie’s leadership has had a profound impact on are and culture in Ottawa. “David’s valuable work and direction have been key to the success of the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra over the last two decades, which has contributed to the richness and diversity of the cultural landscape in our city,” the mayor said. Currie, a resident of Sandy Hill, has lived in Ottawa since 1971, when he joined the National Arts Centre Orchestra as assistance principal bass player. He became the principal bass player in 1009 but left at the end of the season to expand his experience as a conductor. Currie has also been a professor of music and conductor

of the University of Ottawa orchestra since 1982. This year, 2012, not only marks Currie’s 20th anniversary as maestro with the OSO,

Short list for new police chief too short The city has picked up a nasty habit. In the interest of harm reduction, an intervention is in order as our elected representatives appear to have learned little from the Lansdowne reconstruction fiasco. In that case, council voted to accept a proposal from a sole supplier, and then had to attempt to explain why they didn’t need to explore alternatives. The consequences of that decision has led to a drawn-out process

where nearly two years after the vote, shovels have yet to be plunged into the ground along the Rideau Canal. Now we come to the process to select a new chief of police following Vern White’s appointment to the Senate. The police services board appears to have caught the same bug that befell council over Lansdowne. Usually the city wouldn’t hire a street sweeper without asking for public applications, but the police board

thinks it’s a good idea to only consider existing members of the police department for the chief’s job. There are a couple of potential problems with this decision. For one, White was long ago given the mandate to groom an internal candidate to take his position if he moved on. The potential folly of that requirement becomes evident now: his subordinates may have spent years beholden to the man

who can hand them the keys to the chief’s office down the road. One of those former subordinates will now become chief. Another problem is similar to the one that caused all the kerfuffle over Lansdowne. What if there is an external candidate out there who has a better product to offer. Why shut them out? Choosing a supplier and ignoring all other offers is not a good way to run an ice cream stand and it’s not a

good way to run a city either. White has shown good judgment as chief and we hope he shows good judgment in recommending someone for his job. But we shouldn’t have to gamble on one person’s best guess. Maybe one of the two deputy chiefs is the best person for the job of chief, but we’ll never know if there’s no open competition. By foregoing an open, cross-country job search, the police services board has

limited the quantity – and likely the quality – of applicants. Ottawa is one of the biggest cities in the country, plus its capital. Surely a Help Wanted sign hung in the window by the board would attract the interest of a number of top law enforcement officers in Canada. If we’re going to spend money on a chief of police, let’s get the right man or woman for the job. An open competition is the only way to make sure that happens.


Everything for nothing on the web? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town If there was a way to sneak into the NHL All-Star Game without paying, some of us would have. Most of us wouldn’t. That’s the way we were brought up. If somebody is selling something and you want it, you pay for it. But if someone offered us a pirated version of the all-star game video for nothing over the Internet, a lot more of us would take that. And, of course, that also applies to music, books and movies. A disturbing number of us feel that we are entitled to free, music, books and movies over the Internet. In recent weeks there has been a huge outcry, mostly in the U.S., over proposed anti-piracy legislation. Millions participated in online protests of one sort or another, to the extent that some American legislators who originally supported the bill are said to be getting cold feet. Why, exactly, do some people feel entitled to free content over the Internet? Is it because they paid for their computers? You know, they paid for the washing machines. Do they expect free clothes? Is it because they pay for the Internet connection? Is it because they’re cheap? Is it because they don’t respect the right of artists to be paid for their work. It’s an important question, because the Internet has a good chance to wipe out the music industry and the publishing industry. Companies have been steadily going under for the last few years. Musicians and writers have seen their earning opportunities drastically diminished at the same time as consumers have feasted on free content. New copyright legislation, both here and in the U.S., is an attempt to right some of those wrongs. Inevitably, there are details that need to

be changed, but most of the outcry has nothing to do with details. It has to do with the principle of the thing: that we have a right to everything, for free. Again, why? Leonard Cohen has a new album out this week. He’s worked hard over a long career, provided joy and inspiration to millions of people. Isn’t that worth something? Or do we somehow have a right to his music without paying for it. One argument that will be made is that Leonard Cohen doesn’t need the money and neither does the big company that records him. But most of the victims of Internet piracy are not the Leonard Cohens, Sonys or CÊline Dions of this world. Artists who get rich from their music are in the minority. Most of the victims of Internet piracy are struggling artists who have financed their own projects and are trying to make an honest dollar from them. This is not taking a quarter from a payphone; it is stealing from the mom-and-pop store down the street. It is interesting to note that among the supporters of the legislation are unions representing both artists and craftspeople employed in the entertainment industry. These are not wealthy entertainers, just working people who realize that their livelihood is at stake. (Disclosure alert: I am a member of the musicians’ union, but am not selling CDs.) One of the targets of the controversial legislation is the big offshore operator who sends pirated material back to North American consumers. There won’t be too many defending him. But that guy couldn’t exist without his customers and his customers are ordinary people who are not willing to pay for content. Some recent attempts to punish ordinary people for this have been clumsy and heavy-handed, but that doesn’t make what they are doing right. The debate will move closer to home in the next few years as newspapers, some of which now attack copyright laws as infringements on freedom of speech, begin to charge for the Internet content they have been giving away for free. Will that be you, trying to sneak into the sports section?

Kanata entrepreneur invents water-activated shower stick

EMC News – Nick May’s eureka moment happened during a mixing mishap in his kitchen last year. The 23-year-old rural Kanata man was experimenting with chemicals, trying to create a water-activated shaving cream for women. May was mixing different combinations of chemicals in the squares of ice cube trays when he accidently dropped some powder into a metal bowl filled with vegetable oil, which was warming on the stove. The oil activated the powder forming a slippery nugget that sunk to the bottom of the bowl – he only discovered his creation while later cleaning the container in the sink. “The nugget stuck to my spoon,� he said. “So that was my ‘aha’ moment. That told me that what I was trying to do was awesome.� The nugget was a slippery substance, perfect for use as a water-activated shaving cream. May’s discovery turned the first-year Carleton University student from an amateur scientist into a fledgling entrepreneur. The next set of steps was a little more demanding – finding a manufacturer and marketing the product. First May held a test study

with a group of women – comprised of his cousin and some of her university friends to test his prototype. After reviewing the results of his focus group, May decided to create a vanilla-scented shaving stick called Vanilla Shower Time, a product containing tea tree oil with omega oils instead of preservatives. “It doesn’t have all the extra crap,â€? said May. “The real story here is he’s taken it to manufacture,â€? said Robert Burk, chair of the chemistry department at Carleton University. “He’s getting an education in a lot more than chemistry.â€? May has a fertile mind, said Burk, who teaches a first year course on general chemistry attended by May. The first-year university student was working on an idea to add an oxidant to fuel for motorcycle to super-charge the engine. “He’s got all these great ideas ‌and now he’s shown he can push it through to a product that’s on store’s shelves.â€? May, who is enrolled in the bachelor of science program at Carleton and hopes to eventually become a pharmacist, said he wanted to avoid using many of the chemicals common in other shaving products and instead rely on only natural ingredients. He came up with the seed

money to manufacture the sticks by selling his motorcycle – the other passion in his life. May started racing the motocross circuit across North America at the age of 14, retiring when he turned 20 and returning to high school to get his diploma. He graduated from Adult High School in Ottawa with a 90 per cent average, good enough to earn him an $8,000 scholarship to Carleton. Seed money in hand, May next found a group of manufacturers to create the lable, container, and vanilla-scented stick, producing a first run of 5,000 shower sticks. The product, which sells for $9.99, has been on sale at Abstentions, a convenience store at Carleton University and the First Class Book Store at Algonquin College since December. It has since been introduced at three Natural Food Pantry stores in Ottawa, including a branch located at 5537 Hazeldean Rd. in Kanata. May said he hopes to expand production and sell the shower stick using major retailers. May said he’s been fascinated with the concept of making a solid shaving lubricant since he was 14 years old. “I was amazed at how awesome a moisturizing strip was on a razor.�

EMC News – Following the outrage that ensued after OC Transpo management backtracked on a promise to release bus-location data openly to the public, the transit agency is set to keep its commitment and release the information by March 22. Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, a commissioner who is also chairman of the information technology subcommittee, said a productive Jan. 24 meeting of an OC Transpo IT working group led to the change of heart.

Last year, Mary lost sleep worrying how her mom was managing alone…

During a special transit commission meeting on Jan. 26, members unanimously approved a report directing strict timelines for when the bus-location data should be released. “I think we have to be able to provide the open data,” Tierney said. “That’s a commitment that we made, and this (the report) is going to address that. By March 22, that commitment will be fulfilled.” Tierney said he was pleased with the subsequent action on the bus-location data issue, after becoming “extremely upset” that chairwoman Diane Deans and OC Transpo general

manager Alain Mercier told the transit commission on Jan. 17 that the data should be kept private for use by OC Transpo with its mobile applications and displays in order to maximize the amount of revenue that could be made from the data. At the last meeting, transit commissioners were told that “dynamic advertising,” including the potential for exclusive OC Transpo use of bus-location data, could net the transit agency $1.1 million in new revenue over the next four years.

Bus data to go live in March BUS DATA, from 10

The report approved on Jan. 26 states: “(The) IT working group believes and recommends that the city should proceed with the release of real time GPS data as soon as prudent terms of use can be developed, given that there is currently no market taking advantage of such advertising opportunities and that the anticipated additional revenue is relatively small.” Mercier told transit commissioners on Jan. 17 that OC Transpo would be looking at how much money could be made from harnessing the exclusive use of bus-location data, and then let commissioners decide what’s more important: potential advertising revenue from the only mobile app that can show real-time bus locations, or the city’s commitment to transparency through its open data initiative. That debate was set to take place this summer. But after the commission voted in favour of speeding up the public release of the information, Mercier said OC Transpo has been “very open

to moving ahead.” While last year, the transit agency was focused on addressing the financial constraints in its fiscal framework, this year has brought a challenge of balancing the needs of OC Transpo and the expectations of customers. “Customers’ expectations are going fast and we’re keeping up with the times,” Mercier said. “We’ve been working together and we know where we want to go, and we’ll be talking about that on March 22.” A strong argument was made by Tierney to look more closely at the model Winnipeg uses to release its bus-location data to the public for use in privately-developed applications that let riders know how far away their next bus is. Alex Lougheed, spokesperson for the local advocacy group Open Data Ottawa, said the group is “super excited” about this next stage in the ongoing process of fighting for open data. In the end, it was community pressure that led to this success, said Lougheed,

a Centretown resident. That pressure went beyond the open data community and tech-minded developers because transit users are able to see the benefit and express that to councillors and commissioners. “There is a lot of genuine demand for this stuff,” Lougheed said, who handed out “certificates of awesome” to transit commission members to thank them for their support. The city did release a buslocation data briefly during its Apps4Ottawa contest in 2010 and early 2011, and transit apps were very popular: “Where is My Bus?,” an app developed by ByWard Market resident Jonathan Rudenberg, won the people’s choice award. But some other bus apps didn’t work and left OC Transpo to field calls about the bad information they were putting out to the public, transit commissioners were told on Jan. 17. Rudenberg said he intends to look at the format OC Transpo plans to release the data in and rework his app to make it useable.

Youth Suicide Prevention

By: Benjamin Leikin, Mental Health Project Officer Jemimah Brown, Mental Health Youth Facilitator

Suicides are a tragic reality, especially amongst the youth population. In Canada, suicides are the second leading cause of death among youth aged 10 to 24. Teenage years can be a difficult time of much change and transition and with that comes many additional stressors. Unfortunately, being unable to deal with these additional stressors can cause youth to turn to suicide. But suicide is never the answer. Warning signs of suicide: Warning signs may indicate that a person could be having suicidal thoughts. Some of these warning signs include: • Withdrawal from family and friends • Lack of interest in school, work, or hobbies • Behaviour that is out of character • Increase in risky behaviour • Substance misuse • Increased mood swings, aggression, and “flat” mood

Many parents feel anxious about talking to their kids about sex, yet, they are a major source of information about sexuality for their children. Don’t know where to start? Here are some tips to help guide during these very important talks:

Let’s Talk About Sex

start early Talking about sexuality at an early age will make it easier when talking about more complex issues when they become teenagers. If your child has not asked you “where babies come from” by age 6 or 7—bring it up. Take it slowly, building on topics you have already discussed. If your teen has not asked you about sex—bring it up with them. Do not expect that everything will be covered in one “talk” as it may take more than one conversation before you are both comfortable discussing the subject. What is most important is that your teen feels they can come to you with their questions and concerns. make tHe most of teacHable moments Capitalize on opportunities that come up in everyday life. Talk about a relative’s pregnancy and ask them if they have reflected on the question—where do babies come from?

• Giving away prized belongings • Dark themes in poetry, art, or writing • Feelings of depression, hopelessness, and helplessness • Changes in sleeping, eating, or personal hygiene • Talking about death or suicide • Having a plan on how to commit suicide HoW to Help someone: If you see any of the above warning signs, there are things you can do to help: • First, confront it. If you suspect suicidal thoughts, don’t be afraid to ask directly if they are considering suicide. You cannot make someone more suicidal by asking about it. Suicide is not an idea you can put in someone’s head. • Listen with an open mind. Do not judge. • Don’t lessen or dismiss any of their feelings. • Tell the person that you really care about

them. Express that they matter to you. Clearly tell them that you want to help in any way that you can. • Do not promise to keep their thoughts of suicide a secret. When a life is at risk, you must tell someone. • Getting outside help is critical. Contact your family doctor, a mental health professional, a crisis line, or go to the closest emergency room. If there is immediate danger, call 911. • Stay in contact with the person. Check in to see how they are doing. Be sure to praise the person for their courage to get help. Youth suicide is a major public health concern. Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is currently working with schools, to provide programming to build resiliency and reduce risks of suicide in youth. As well, OPH is financially supporting the Youth Services Bureau (YSB) mental health walk-in clinic, allowing more youth and families to get support. Suicides will not go away unless we create an open dialogue, and support those in need. If you or someone you know is in need, please do not hesitate to contact the following: YSB 24/7 Crisis Line – 613-260-2360 Distress Centre Ottawa and Region - 613-238-3311 Tel-aide Outaouais – Gatineau -819-775-3223, Ottawa -613-741-6433 For more information, please visit health or call Ottawa Public Health Information at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656). You can also connect with OPH on Twitter (@ottawahealth) for the latest public health information.

Whether you just heard a news report about sexually transmitted infections, watching a love scene in a TV show, or even listening to provocative lyrics on the radio, these can be conversation starters with your teen. It does not matter how you bring it up—it just matters that you let your teen know that you are willing to talk about it. use “real” Words Use proper vocabulary when referring to body parts. Along with learning the correct terms, your child will learn that these are not “dirty” words

and that it’s ok to ask questions. clarify questions When your child or teen comes to you with a question, clarify what it is they are asking. When a child asks where they came from, they might simply be asking in which city they were born. Keep in mind that many of their questions are really “am I normal?” in disguise. You don’t have to know all the answers, and it’s ok to say that you do not know. Suggest that you and your child find the answer together.

sHare your values —don’t lecture or preacH Listen and respect your child’s ideas. Ask them what they think about it. Share your experiences and thoughts about the subject at hand. Don’t impose your values; share them by putting them in context. For more information on talking about sexuality, contact Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 (TTY:613-580-6744) or visit our website ottawa. ca/sexuality.

Remembering Emerson Mary’s brother was always so full of life MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories EMC Lifestyle – Losing a sibling is never easy. You try to remember the good times and they help sustain you as you come to grips with the finality of the sudden death of a loved one. Last week my brother Emerson, who has been so much a part of these stories since their inception in 1976, passed away. He had a massive heart at-

tack and died in hospital in St. Thomas, Ont. And so this week, please let me tell you about another side of the impish brother who has peppered the pages of this paper for more than 35 years. To do so, I have to roll back the clock to when he was only 16 years old and when he put on the uniform of a Royal Canadian airman. The war

had barely started and he wanted so badly to be in the service. He would celebrate his 17th birthday in the Netherlands. He wasn’t the only Canadian “boy soldier” to join up and head to the battlefields, he was just my brother. His mail home was full of description. He had a great talent for painting a picture of whatever country he was in and his ability to always see the lighter side of life certainly manifested itself when he was overseas. He was a dispatchrider and a picture sent home of him straddling his motorcycle had our mother convinced he was going to end up in jail. Painted in blazing white letters on the motor were two words:

and there was no mistaking him. He often wore plusfours, a deerstalker hat and carried a walking stick with a brass boar on the handle. He was very proud of his family and was devoted to his two grandsons, Tyler and Lucas. We talked often on the phone and he always started his conversation by saying, “well, g’day, g’ day, how are things in the Valley?” It was always my belief that the war robbed my brother of his childhood: he went overseas as a young boy and came back a man. I often wonder if he had had the chance, could he have gone on to help design all those glass buildings we see in the cities today. He drew them when he was a youngster around our kitchen table on the farm. We thought at the time that Emerson was “different.” Imagine glass towers from ground level reaching up into the sky, with elevators going up on the out-

side. We’d laugh at the absurdity of his dreams. Yes, we’d say, “Emerson is different.” And what of the stories I told about him? Emerson allowed me generous literary licence as his mischievous behaviour became part of my tales of our growing up on a Renfrew County farm. It was touching last Sunday at my church when so many people gave me their sympathy and wondered if the tales about my brother would end. They will go on as before. Memories of a loved one do not cease with his passing. And so I ask you, my faithful readers, to remember a funloving, often exasperating, but always full of life individual, who made my stories come alive. I will miss him greatly, as will those who were dear to his heart, but it is my prayer that he is in another place where he has found rest, where his wit will still be intact to amuse and, yes, perhaps confound those around him.

“Miss Carriage,” when others serving with him had inscriptions like “Miss Canada” and “Miss America.” We always thought Emerson was born laughing. When he arrived back in Canada, he and his young family took up residence in a military base. With children of his own, I wasn’t surprised when I visited to hear a rap on the door and a group of youngsters standing there wanting to know if Emerson could come out and play. He bought me my first flashy bicycle when he came home from overseas. It was blazing red, had feathers on the handlebars, a bell the size of a platter and shiny silver fenders. For a young girl in high school, this was the ultimate bicycle and it served me well for many years. Emerson was tall and when he lived in Port Stanley, Ont., he was known as The Laird. He knew everyone in the town

EMC Community – Jennifer Oake may have been named one of Canada’s 40 outstanding principals for 2012, but the St. Pius X High School principal said her staff makes the school a better place. “I’ve worked with lots of inspirational people,” said Oake, who’s been the school’s principal for six years. “I’ve been very fortunate to work

with fantastic people. I’ve learned something from every one of them.” Simone Oliver, the school’s superintendent, was part of a team that nominated Oake for the award. She said her nomination was kept secret and the principal didn’t find out until a staff breakfast was held the last day of classes before Christmas. “Jennifer is someone very, very focused,” Oliver said.

“She has a shared vision and is very collaborative in her approach that includes families, staff and students. Her vision has a very holistic approach ... and she’s very involved at the board level and at the community level.” According to the Ottawa Catholic District School Board, Oake’s nominators cited her strong relationships with the school community including staff, students and parents. Oake was also said to promote a collaborative problemsolving environment and she has a student-centred vision for the school, including trying to bring attention to mental health and wellness issues. “As staff and teachers, one of our goals within the board is to de-stigmatize mental health and train educators about mental health,” Oake said. “Not diagnoses, but knowing the signs and being comfortable referring them to people who can help them.” Oake said she’s always known she wanted to be an educator and later a principal. “I always had a passion for teaching, and I loved working with kids,” she said, adding that she wanted to become a principal so she could create positive change and work with all the students in the school, not just those in her classroom. On Feb. 28, Oake and the other winning principals will be formally honoured at the Canada’s Outstanding Principals Gala Dinner Event, held in Toronto.

Corn comes in an amazing variety of forms EMC Lifestyle - Corn is an amazing vegetable when you look at the many different forms in which it’s available. There’s fresh corn cooked on the cob, canned or frozen niblets corn, and creamed corn. There’s corn syrup and corn oil which are both liquids. In its dried, ground form, corn is available as cornmeal, cornstarch and corn flour, all used in baking and cooking. And then there are popular snack foods such as popped corn and corn chips. There are thousands of different recipes using corn in one or more of its various forms. This tasty corn pudding is made with three different types – canned niblets corn, creamed corn, and ground cornmeal. It’s colourful, and, as you’d expect, full of the sweet flavour of corn. The pudding has a very dense texture and, as a result, is quite filling. It’s best served as a side dish with a light main course. PARSLEY AND RED PEPPER CORN PUDDING

In a large bowl, whisk or beat the cream cheese and warm milk together until smooth. Add the eggs, niblets corn, creamed corn, Cheddar cheese, parsley and sweet red pepper. Stir well. In another bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar and baking powder. Add this to the liquid ingredients, and stir until thoroughly combined. Spread the mixture in the prepared cake pan, and bake at 375F for 30-35 minutes. When a knife inserted into the centre of the pudding comes out clean, the pudding is done. Remove from the oven, and let sit for 5 minutes before cutting and serving. This makes 9-12 pieces depending on how large you cut the portions.

A real estate brokerage has been helping investors profit from investing in nice homes by offering a free real estate report entitled, “How to Make $112,284 Each & Every Year Investing in Real Estate without Touching a Screwdriver” According to Sharon, who purchased three investment properties with-in two months after receiving the report: “It’s my opinion, that anyone who is interested in investing in real estate should request a copy of this report. This report provides beginners or experienced investors information on a system that will help them succeed in investing in real estate.” In this report, you actually get to see local investors who used this system to change their lives. One of those investors is a couple named Paul and Maja. According to the couple, “We started investing in properties using the strategy outlined in this free report in the fall of 2011. We accumulated 2 homes in less than

four weeks that combined are paying us just under $1,100 of cash flow each and every month. Plus we have locked in more than $112,557 of profit’’. The couple stated that the homes they invested in were “in move” in condition so they didn’t have to spend their evenings and weekends fixing up homes. Paul and Maja liked this approach because it didn’t require them to have the financial risk of having to pay the mortgage, taxes and insurance costs for a property during a rehab project. The approach seems to be working because they are planning to leave their high paying jobs! To get a copy of the same FREE report Sharon, Paul and Maja used to begin their real estate investing, call the Ottawa Real Estate Information Center at 613-6992036 and enter ID 2.

All Saints Catholic High School grad has sights set on World Cup

EMC Sports – Canada has a good chance of making the 2014 World Cup, said Odaine Demar, a defender with the Capital City Football Club, and the All Saints Catholic High School graduate is determined to put his name on the team’s roster. Demar, who was born in Port Antonio, Jamaica before moving to Europe and later Canada, said he’s torn between the desire to play for Team Jamaica and Team Canada. Making Team Canada is probably the best option, said the Morgan’s Grant man, as the country has the best chance of entry into the next World Cup. “I think I have a better chance of developing as a player (in Canada) and possibly making the World Cup,” he said. “I hold Jamaica very dear to my heart, but I think Canada has a greater chance of making it.” Many of Canada’s best soccer players develop by playing for professional clubs in Europe and the United States, said Demar. “I believe Canada will have a strong chance of making it to the World Cup because of the development of their players,” he said. “I’m just waiting to hear back from Canada,” said Demar. “I thought about making the switch, so I’m just waiting to hear from the coaching staff.” Demar made the Jamaican under-20 national soccer team last year, but was knocked off the roster by an injury. He has attracted a lot of interest from clubs overseas, with contract offers from Bay Olympic of the Lotto Sport Italia Northern Region Football League in New Zealand and was offered trials with Toronto FC of Major League Soccer.

years with the Avalanche. “I really learned a lot,” said Demar. “Coming to North America was very different. I had to jump in and get used to it. “I never expected training sessions with a high school team to be the same as a professional team.” The Avalanche maintained a professional attitude both on and off the field said Demar. The team always advanced as far as the city finals of the city high school soccer championship. “Unfortunately, we always lost to St. Pius – who made it to (the provincial championship),” Demar said. In high school, Demar started off playing striker, but his position changed to mid-fielder, then defender as he started to put on weight. After high school, Demar played for a few clubs in Europe, including FC Schweinfurt and SG Wattenschied – he was offered an extended trial with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC in 2010, but

opted to remain in Germany. Last May, Demar signed with the Capital City FC, during the club’s first season, which saw the team make it to the final, losing 1-0 to Toronto Croatia in the Canadian Soccer League Cup final. At the end of the season, Demar was called up to the Jamaican under-20 national team to play for the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football championship. He was later called into the training camp for the national team, just before their game against Trinidad and Tobago on Oct. 18, but he couldn’t play due to injury. Demar is now resting up and preparing for another season with Capital City, with training camp scheduled to start in March. It doesn’t matter where in the world you play, just that you wear a competitive card, said Demar. “It’s just the hard work you put in,” he said.

Demar first started kicking around a soccer ball at the age of six, but only started playing at a competitive level in 2005. “I was just playing regular park soccer – when I moved to England, that’s when I joined my first team,” he said. “I was definitely late.” Physically, Demar was already an athlete, having grown up playing rugby, track and field and cricket in Jamaica. But it was still a challenge to learn the technical skills of soccer. “I think it was mostly definitely a disadvantage because I missed out on a lot of things technically,” he said. “I had to work harder.” Demar was a quick study of the game, scoring the second highest number of goals all-time for All Saints Catholic High School, hitting the net 47 times during his four

OUTDOOR POOL ENCLOSURE CHANGES The City is proposing major changes to the requirements for enclosures of outdoor pools. This includes requiring fencing on all four sides so that you cannot go through a door in the house directly into the pool area, new rules on locking gates, fence requirements to reduce climbing, and much more. Details are on the City website. Comments can be sent to by Feb 20th.

WASTE MANAGEMENT OPEN HOUSE Waste Management (WM) is continuing its environmental assessment (EA) to develop a new landfill at their site on Carp Road. The fourth series of Open Houses is next week. There is one in Kanata on Wednesday, Feb 8 at the Kanata Recreation Complex at 100 Walter Baker Place, off Terry Fox Drive, from 4 to 8 pm. The purpose of this Open House is to provide the public with an opportunity to review the Detailed Impact Assessment for the Preferred Landfill Footprint, as well as the Comparative Evaluation of Leachate Treatment Alternatives and selection of a Preferred Alternative. In addition, WM will provide information about the ongoing EA process and related consultation activities. For further information and the location of other Open Houses go to

CITY ARCHIVES The City of Ottawa Archives invites residents to complete a brief online questionnaire in order to help inform its strategic plan for the next five years. Your input will help make the Archives a community meeting place and ensure that its services meet your needs. Visit before February 24, 2012 to complete the questionnaire.

WHAT SHOULD BE LOCATED AT 2 THE PARKWAY When Beaverbrook was initially under development, there were plans for high rise apartments on the Sandwell Green and adjacent to Beaverbrook Park. Residents were opposed to those locations, with the result that high density housing was moved to the corner of Teron Road and Campeau Drive. The Atriums were eventually constructed there. That building has two wings, at the south end 9 storeys and at the north end 11 storeys, a parking structure and a large open space, most of which is forested. The open space was one of the most important characteristics of the site, following the principle of including private open space for high density developments. This open space also serves as a buffer to the lower density housing to the north. The post office on the Parkway, built as a single storey building across from a service station (later replaced with town homes), fitted into the lower density area. A high apartment structure on this site would change that, removing the value of the buffer and creating shadows on low density housing. That’s why I support the community’s position on maintaining the existing zoning on the site, which limits the height of a building to 5 storeys. Thank you to those who came out and provided ideas for uses that would better serve the community, while keeping the lower form that suits that location. I am also pleased to work with residents from the three major community associations to develop the concept plans that will demonstrate what the community would support and provide guidelines to property owners.

COMMUNITY NOTICES The speed limit on the Goulbourn Forced Road is being reduced to 50 kph. A Public Meeting on the AECON report on drainage, Kizell wetlands and Beaver Pond will be held in late February. Future meetings will include an Information Meeting on Radon Gas and a City-wide Planning Summit. A request to zone the property west of Huntmar for an Outlet Mall has been received by the City. This is an initial zoning, not a spot rezoning.

City Councillor, Kanata north

EMC News – A Beaverbrook man’s passion for handmade guitars started in high school with a teacher who owned a handcrafted instrument. Patrick Hawley, who took classical guitar lessons during his teenage years, became enthralled with the idea that the instrument could be created by hand, rather than by a machine. “Just the idea that these things could be made by hand struck me as kind of neat,” he said. He crafted his first guitar from scratch in 1987 after reading a handful of books on the subject. “(I) just decided to go for it,” he said. “It was a little trickier then it is now.” Hawley took a hiatus from his hobby as he built his life; he married his wife Jackie and they had three children together: Laura, Steve and Dave. The whole family is musical – everyone plays the guitar, and Jackie directs the Cantiamo Girls Choir and the Ottawa Children’s Choir. He didn’t build another instrument until about six years ago. “Life sort of intervened,” said Hawley. As Steve was preparing to head off to university, Laura bought him a guitar to bring with him, said Hawley. It cost a pretty penny, around $300. “That motivated me,” said Hawley about picking up his hobby again. He crafted a classical guitar for his daughter with a redwood top, hormigo wood for the back and sides, and edged it in blue paua abalone shell. It took him over 100 hours to put it all together but it was worth it. “She was pretty happy with it,” said Hawley. “I really enjoyed doing that.” Now, getting set to retire from his job as the director of reactor of thermo hydraulics for the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, Hawley is turning his hobby into a full-time pursuit.

craft the string instruments, and others that he’s built himself to make the process easier. One is an arm that holds a router when he’s cutting the ledges for binding, which helps ensure a more uniform depth to the notches in the wood. Another is a large Plexiglas and wood box with a vent that helps eliminate harmful vapours from the glue he uses to hold the wood together. Hawley has a stash of various woods earmarked for future guitars stored in a mini greenhouse in a corner of the basement next to a dehumidifier. “It’s important to control the humidity,” said Hawley, as it can affect the quality of the wood. July and August are not the best months to make wooden instruments, he said, because the moisture in the air seeps into the wood. When the humidity lessens, the wood contracts and can cause cracks in the instrument. “If he’s not sleeping or eating he’s in the basement,” said

his wife Jackie. “But I think it’s good. It’s good he’s got something that interests him.” For their 25th wedding anniversary, Hawley made his wife a custom guitar with a spruce wood front, east Indian rosewood for the back and sides, and inlaid with mother of pearl. “Nobody else gets that kind of gift for your 25th anniversary,” said Jackie. “It’s a beautiful thing to look at and it’s a beautiful thing to play.” ‘VERY SATISFYING’

Hawley’s son Dave grew up with Lucas Haneman, a popular Kanata-based musician. Haneman had Hawley create him a one-of-a-kind acoustic guitar that has traveled with him to countless shows. “It’s just a wonderful, wonderful instrument,” said Haneman about his guitar, which has east Indian rosewood for the back and sides and an Engelmann Spruce top. “It’s my main acoustic guitar for any studio uses and live (shows).” GUITARS, see 24

Waste Management of Canada Corporation Environmental Assessment for a New Landfill Footprint at the West Carleton Environmental Centre OPEN HOUSE #4

The new landfill footprint is the only component of the WCEC that requires EA approval under the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). The proposed location of the WCEC and the new landfill footprint component is within the City of Ottawa in the area shown on the map below. The purpose of the EA is to study the potential environmental effects (positive or negative) of the proposed new landfill footprint. Key components of an EA include consultation with government agencies and the public; consideration and evaluation of alternatives; and the management of potential environmental effects. Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about a proposal. In November 2011, WM held a series of Open Houses and a Workshop with the public to review the final Existing Conditions, present the assessment and comparative evaluation of the Alternative Landfill Footprints, identify the Preferred Landfill Footprint, and present the five proposed Leachate Treatment Alternatives. Open House #4 The purpose of Open House #4 is to provide the public with an opportunity to review the Detailed Impact Assessment for the Preferred Landfill Footprint as well as the Comparative Evaluation of Leachate Treatment Alternatives and selection of a Preferred Alternative. In addition, WM will provide information about the ongoing EA process and related consultation activities. WM has scheduled Open House #4 events the week of February 7th – 9th, 2012 for the following dates, times, and locations: Tuesday February 7, 2012

Sweeping plan for arts and heritage has city’s support Laura Mueller

EMC News – A brand new fiveyear plan for arts, heritage and culture is drawing support for ideas like building a new downtown library, re-introducing a local poet laureate, overhauling the city’s process for commemorative naming and establishing a plan for archeology. In the $5-million plan, a total of $2 million will be added to the city’s contribution to local arts, heritage and cultural groups over the five years as part of a “seed” investment. “We invest in these communities and they will grow themselves,” said Lilly Koltun, the chair of the steering committee that developed the plan. The city will also put $1.5 million over five years towards renewing and preserving capital facilities for the arts, heritage and culture. There are a few other programs, including $25,000 for a poet laureate in 2014 and $100,000 in the same

year for a pilot program to create new cultural initiatives at a neighbourhood level. The goal is to foster the grassroots development of cultural “districts” or clusters throughout the city. Heather Jamieson of Arts Ottawa East said the plan is strong because of the geographic component that considers the role of arts in rural, suburban and urban areas. “This is validating the contribution each area makes to our arts sector,” she said. The plan was roundly applauded before the community and protective services committee endorsed it on Jan. 19. Advocates lined up to convey their accolades for the plan, with a notable lack of criticism of a nature rarely seen from public delegates at city hall. “It’s as cohesive and comprehensive of a document as you’re ever going to find,” said Catherine O’Grady, chair of the city’s citizen advisory committee on arts, heritage and culture.

David Flemming of Heritage Ottawa said he and the group are pleased with the inclusion of a plan to not only preserve Ottawa’s built architectural heritage, but also to create a new archeological plan for the city. “This really ties in the built heritage and the importance of that,” Flemming said. “It’s important to recognize that it’s part of arts and culture.” The National Capital Commission was also happy with the plan, particularly the archeological aspect. Part of the plan that stood out to arts advocates who spoke at the Jan. 19 meeting was the focus on creating spaces for arts and providing easier access to existing spaces. The plan wants the city to look at finding ways to boost access to underused spaces, encourage the private developers to include cultural space in their buildings, along the lines of the Great Canadian Theatre Company in Wellington West.

No parking on Uplands after Lulu traffic ‘nightmare’ but because parking wasn’t restricted on Uplands at the time, “there was limited ac-

his letter that the CE Centre’s parking lot, which can hold more than 2,000 vehicles, was

never more than 65 per cent full. The centre’s website lists the parking fee as $7.

After the local city councillor raised concerns about traffic and parking after a warehouse sale at the new CE Centre, “no-parking” signs have been installed along Uplands Drive. The Lululemon sale at the new trade-show centre on Jan. 20 led to a backlog of vehicles on Uplands Drive and Hunt Club Road leading to the CE Centre at 4899 Uplands Dr. The congestion was enough to elicit angry calls to the office of Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans. That sparked Deans to file a lengthy inquiry at the city council meeting on Jan. 25, asking what could be done to alleviate future traffic issues in the area. Deans also asked if the city would consider putting “no-parking” signs along Uplands, where people parked during the sale and overstayed the three-hour on-street parking limit during the sale. By the time the day was through, those signs had already been installed from Breadner Boulevard to the Airport Parkway. Deans called the issue a “double-edged sword.” “Clearly it’s an important centre for economic development in the city and clearly it’s an early success, and that’s good news,” Deans said. “On

the other hand, we don’t want it to be a traffic circulation nightmare for local residents and people trying to access the airport.” When the planning committee looked at the proposal in 2010, Deans said she expressed concern about the traffic circulation. She wanted to see a peer review of the city’s traffic study, but staff said it was necessary. “But now I’m thinking maybe it was,” Deans added. But a memo to city councillors from CE Centre president, Kevin McCrann, states that the company feels its upgrades to traffic circulation have had a positive effect. “The fact of the matter is there was at no time, any traffic backed up onto the parkway. We were confident in our planning and were thrilled to see the flow coming from the parkway as planned,” he stated in the letter. There still remains some additional traffic-circulation work to be done at the parkway in the spring, McCrann noted. McCrann said that he was happy to see the installation of “no-parking” signs on Uplands because he felt that people using the road to park along was “dangerous.” McCrann said the centre’s staff did call bylaw services to help enforce the parking limits,

Collège Catholique Franco-Ouest in Bells Corners wants everyone to know all about their great programmes and is holding an open house on February 7th to spread the word. Franco-Ouest is a French Catholic high school where any child can shine. Located at 411 Seyton Dr., the school offers an International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme for Grade 11 and 12, and for Grades 7 to 10. Principal Véronique Pourbaix-Kent said the program is their best kept secret. “Our students shine in university and particularly those who have an IB diploma,” Pourbaix-Kent said. “We are very proud of them and proud of our program.” Students at Collège catholique FrancoOuest are taught exclusively in French, except for their English classes. PourbaixKent added the students do extremely well in all of their English classes. They follow the same curriculum and study the same novels and poetry as students in English schools. Upon graduation, students can choose between French or English postsecondary education, learning a trade, or entering the work-force. The school’s principal for the past six years, Pourbaix-Kent is very proud of her school, describing it as a relaxed and family-oriented environment. The open house will be a reflection of that with teachers and students available to speak about their programs and offering tours of the school. The IB Programme prepares students for university and in some cases, highlevel courses are recognized as first year

Our students shine in university and particularly those who have an IB diploma Principal Veronique Pourbaix-Kent

university credits. The principal adds that the IB Programme fosters great habits – allowing students to learn how to lead a balanced life of volunteering, juggling workloads, finding their own creativity within the arts and learning the importance of keeping fit for life. Once in university, students already know how to respond and excel.

The IB Programme will not be the only focus of the open house. FrancoOuest being very sports oriented, it also offers many programs to appeal to the diverse interests of its student population, including the arts. Pourbaix-Kent said there really is something for everyone. “We have a Justice Concentration, where in partnership with lawyers, judges, police and probation officers, students get a taste for what type of careers they can consider in this field,” Pourbaix-Kent explained. Students in the Media Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) have the opportunity to learn all about film and photography, broadcasting and studio design work, and the SHSM is mentioned on their diploma when they graduate from the programme. Then there is the Construction Programme, where students actually have the opportunity to build a house for Minto Group. “Even though we are a smaller school we really try to answer the needs of all our students. We offer the best of both worlds: a smaller school in a family-oriented setting, and excellent programmes to prepare them for their future” Pourbaix-Kent said. The open house, the principal added, is a good opportunity for parents and students to get a real sense of what the school is about.

The open house starts at 7 pm on February 7, 2012

Tenants turning McAuley place into a community EMC community – When Hibo Ismail moved into McAuley Place almost three years ago, a large room just off the entrance of the building had become a dusty, unwelcoming storage area. But on Jan. 25, the bright and repainted lounge was buzzing with people who came out to celebrate the renaissance of community spirit in the building. Ismail, along with two other residents – Jennifer Thomas and Michael Enoka – spearheaded an effort to renovate the room, painting the walls, sourcing furniture donations and a television, and making it into a space for neighbours to connect. Now, people have begun to hang out in the space and getting to know each other better. “The more people involved in the community, it makes it a better place to live in,” Ismail said. The Centretown building is setting an example for an initiative that’s underway throughout Ottawa Community Housing’s buildings – home to more than 32,000 tenants. It’s called the healthy communities initiative, and McAuley Place was one of the first two buildings to try out the new approach starting in 2008.

The initiative is looking to boost tenants’ pride in their homes, their sense of security, encourage positive social engagement and integration into the surrounding community. That could mean anything

from creating a strategy to tackle maintenance issues in partnership with tenants, to hosting community events to working more closely with the community policing officer. “The key to the success is to have tenants at the table,”

Association’s spring sports online registration now open EMC Sports – Once again the Bridlewood Community Association is pleased to offer residents its popular spring sports program. Online registration is now open and closes on Feb. 29. Payment through online registration can be made either by credit card or cheque. There will also be one inperson registration night at St Anne Catholic School Monday, Feb. 6 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Payment at the in-person registration must be made either by cash or cheque. For more than 25 years, residents of Bridlewood and Emerald Meadows have been invited to register their junior kindergarten to Grade 6 children in the community’s spring sports program. With the redesign of programs two years ago there are more age ranges within levels and scheduling has improved. Extended programs include students in grades 7 and 8, while junior kindergarten soccer provides an increased learning opportunity for our youngest athletes. With input from Kanata Soccer, junior kindergarten programs focus on developing the basics and a love of the game. Many volunteers – includ-

and enriching experience for all who participate in sport, at any level. The cost for Bridlewood spring sports is $40 for one sport for one child, $80 for two sports or two children in one sport, $100 for three sports or three children, and $120 for four sports or four children. The maximum any family will pay is $120, which makes this a great deal for active or larger families. Families wishing to register their children must be members of the Bridlewood Community Association. This $10 annual membership is available at the time of registration. Besides the great fun and great sports, each child who participates receives a free Tshirt, medal, year-end pizza party, and team photo. In order to maintain low fees, all families are asked to lend their support to the program either through coaching, managing, helping with team formation, equipment sorting, or one of the many other jobs available. Student volunteers are also welcome to take advantage of this unique opportunity to gain their required volunteer hours. For more information, visit the website at www.

ing student volunteers - are used to help run a series of activity stations designed to teach skills and get kids moving. Parent (or other adult) participation on the field is an inherent part of this community based program and is highly encouraged. Soccer, T-ball, coach pitch, and ultimate (for students in grades 7 and 8) are offered weeknights through the months of May and June. Programs are non-competitive with a focus on having fun, developing skills and being active. As a community activity, it is great fun to get out and play with, and against, neighbours, friends and classmates, and to catch up with people who have been hibernating all winter and are ready to see some sun. All games are played on the many parks in Bridlewood and Emerald Meadows so there is an opportunity to walk or bike to the games, and to check out all the great green spaces and parks the community has to offer. Once again we are proud to be partnered with True Sport Canada (www.truesportpur. ca). This national movement of communities and groups is committed to working towards a positive, meaningful,

Hopewell students learn less is more EMC News - Students at Hopewell Avenue Public School learned new tools of how to stay safe while using social networking websites during a talk delivered by Canada’s privacy commissioner on Jan. 24. Privacy commissioner Jennifer Stoddart asked a gym full of Grade 7 and 8 students who has a Facebook account and most of the students raised their hands. According to Stoddart, an estimated 86 per cent of all Ottawa-area residents over the age of 12 use the Internet daily. With that in mind, the privacy commissioner listed a number of tools students should take advantage of when spending time on social networking websites. “When you are young, you may do dumb things, but all those dumb things do not have to follow you as you grow up,” Stoddart said. Grade 8 student Cameron Stanley said she spends about three hours on the weekend

and at least one hour every evening on the computer. Stanley has a Facebook account she said her parents monitor. She said she intends to apply some of the new tools she learned from Stoddart when spending time on the Internet. “I am thinking when I am older it would be a good idea to have a Facebook account that is personal and one that I could share with my work friends,” Stanley said. “I am definitely going to really think about anything before it is posted.” And thinking before acting was one of the things Stoddart highlighted as a wise strategy for Internet users to apply. “As privacy commissioner, my job is about protecting your reputations online,” Stoddart said to the students. “Learn to get into the habit of thinking before you click.” Less is more is another strategy. Stoddart told them they should carefully consider posting personal information, current locations and questionable photos online. Smart phone technology,

Healing service at Glen Cairn United Glen Cairn United Church

EMC Events – A healing pathway service will be held at Glen Cairn United Church in Kanata on March 4 starting at 10 a.m. This service will include information about the healing pathway, a healing meditation and five-minute treatments after the service. Healing pathway sessions are integrative therapy and works with the energy of the body. The practitioner’s intention is to be an instrument of God’s

healing power. There are specific techniques taught within healing pathway that support the body’s ability to heal. The Healing Pathway like Therapeutic Touch and Reiki can and is used in hospitals, homes and nursing homes. There will also be a healing pathway Phase One course held at Trinity United Church, April 20 to 22. In order to register please phone Lynda Brooks at 613831-2865. The church is located at 140 Abbeyhill Drive in Kanata.

which can update social networking sites to the exact location of a user, is another concern, Stoddart said. “Those phones are like a mini-broadcasting studio,” she said. “You need to use precaution. Ask yourself who you are telling where you are. Think before you post.” The commissioner also touched on online snoops and impersonators. Principal Nicole Turnpin said taking precautions while using social networking websites is something even adults have a hard time with. “The Internet is an excel-

lent learning tool, but you have to take precautions,” Turnpin said. Stanley, who has in the past had some trouble with friends playing around with the Facebook account online, said the assembly has opened her mind up about more ways she can take control of her own profile. “It was very informative, I really am going to use some of these tips,” Stanley said.

‘State of the city’ address offers new ideas Laura Mueller

EMC News – A summit for youth, plans for Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations and a new award, the Order of Ottawa, are a few of the new ideas Mayor Jim Watson highlighted in his first-ever state of the city address.

Delivered to city council the morning after United States President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, Watson’s speech was no barnburner, but he did reveal a few plans of interest for 2012. Building on the momentum of other city council-led summits, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, the youngest

councillor around the table at 26 years old, will lead a summit for youth. The event will be aimed at listening to young people’s advice on a wide range of issues, from transportation to art to eliminating bullying. “For me, this is a great fit,” said Fleury, adding that he’s the “de facto” representative of the young urban professional at the council table. He’s looking to consider what all youth have to say, whether they are already very involved in the community and school or if they have sug-



Sesquicentennial, youth summit plans get underway


Now if she is not a beauty then what is she... look at those eyes and fall in love. She has longer fur which is highlighted with white parts on brown, gold and amber. I can see her just lying there and enjoying a good brushing and purring her little heart out. Look at those whiskers... soo long LOL. She is sweetness itself and a lovely young lady who could bring you such joy and companionship.

gestions for how the city can reach unengaged teens like them. “We want to understand what they want from their city,” Fleury said. “What are the barriers to participation?” The summit could take place in the fall, but in the meantime, the mayor highlighted other initiatives that will get underway in 2012. Canada’s 150th birthday isn’t until 2017, but now is the time to start planning, Watson said. He put Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess and Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs in charge of that initiative. “It’s never too early to start planning how you want to celebrate the country’s birthday and recognize the capital’s role in that celebration,” Bloess said. The anniversary will be a tourism draw, but Bloess wants to make it a longer-term economic development strategy by using the anniversary as a hook to attract large organizations and associations to host their conventions and meetings in Ottawa before – and hopefully after – the celebration. “We really look at this as an opportunity for economic development,” Bloess said. “You don’t just want that onetime bang. You want to create more of an ongoing momen-


tum here. We need to create a buzz around the city.” Watson also wants to consolidate and refresh the 15 categories of Ottawa’s civic appreciation awards into a more streamlined Order of Ottawa, to be handed out to a small group of individuals once a year. He drafted deputy mayors Eli El-Chantiry (West Carleton-March) and Steve Desroches (South Nepean) to tackle that project. Watson also announced a

new breakfast speakers’ series in partnership with francophone economic development group Regroupement des gens d’affaires. The first event will take place on Feb. 16 at city hall and feature Denis Lebel, minister of transport, infrastructure and communities and minister of the economic development agency of Canada for the regions of Quebec. The mayor also announced plans for the soon-to-be-vacant room on the first floor of city hall. The city handed an eviction notice to the Enviro-

Centre, which will move to a building on Rideau Street. In its place, Watson plans to showcase the historic memorabilia, costumes and medals recently donated to the city by Barbara Ann Scott, gold-medal figure skater and “Canada’s Olympic Sweetheart.” Watson used much of the speech to reflect on council decisions he saw as achievements in 2011: progress on light rail and the Lansdowne redevelopment, as well as limiting budget increases and more. Invest Ottawa will officially launch next month and aims to attract investment and innovation to the city – particularly important in light of looming cuts to the federal public service that could impact the area’s economy, Watson said. He also introduced several guests in council chambers who he said exemplify what makes Ottawa “unique and special.” They included a homeless teen who found support at the Youth Services Bureau, a paralyzed teen who participated in Rick Hansen’s 25th-anniversary relay, the owners of Hintonburg’s Carleton Tavern and the founders of Ottawa’s fastest growing private company for the last two years, Shopify, a ByWard Marketbased business that creates online stores that have helped move more than $250 million in merchandise across the globe last year.

Music for the fun of it Ineke de Jong

Kanata Choral Society

EMC Entertainment – Many years ago when Kanata was still in its infancy, Marianne Wilkinson, now councillor for Kanata North, collected a small group of people who like to sing, meeting at her house for an evening of choral merrymaking. This grew and after some years the group became the Kanata Choral Society with an appointed music director, Jiri Hlavacek. A few more music directors followed Hlavacek and at present the Choir is in the capable hands of music director Scott Auchinleck. Throughout the 25 years the society has participated in

many official functions, giving three annual concerts and also has grown musically. The Kanata Choral Society will perform at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, located at 20 Young Rd. in Katimavik on Saturday, Feb. 18, Included in the musical offerings are some favourites from the King Singers repertoire; some classic Broadway tunes; Hymn to Freedom by Oscar Peterson and some compositions by P.D.Q. Bach, a fictitious composer created by musical satirist “Professor Peter Schickele.” The concert will start with a few words on the history of the Society by Wilkinson, and will include a P.D.Q. Bach work for organ and piano:

Toot Suite. The piano accompaniment for this concert will be provided by Barbara Creelman. Tickets will be available at CD Warehouse, all locations and at Domenic’s Music. Adults: $20 at the door, $18 in advance; seniors and students 13-plus: $15. Children 12 and under: free. There will be a reception following the concert in the church hall. The Kanata Choral Society thank the support of the local merchants, advertisers and the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their generous grant. For more information, please visit or phone 613592-1991.

Merivale teacher inducted into Order of the Good Bear Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com


Along with his family, Osterer brought along Grade 12 student Lisa Laframboise, who was diagnosed with leukemia in April 2010. Osterer said he wanted Laframboise to join him because he has been inspired by her courage during the diagnosis and chemotherapy. Laframboise was diagnosed right after her 16th birthday

and had to turn down what would have been her first job at Farm Boy because she had already started treatment. She had lost nearly 40 pounds before being diagnosed and often the treatments would make her light-headed, nauseous and sensitive to light. At one point she needed a wheelchair to get around because the treatments caused her leg to give out. The good news is that she

was in remission in a month and will be able to stop chemo in July. She has been back in school even though sometimes the classroom lights give her headaches. Laframboise met Osterer when she took a ceramics class at the school and was thrilled to be invited to the awards gala. “The people know me here by name,” she said. “The staff and everyone at CHEO have

been so great.” Once the chemo is done, Laframboise said she will be happy to return to a normal social life and planning for her future. From donating storage and food to free cable for hospital televisions, the CHEO Foundation uses the Order of the Good Bear to thank community partners for making life a little more comfortable for sick kids.


EMC News – Irv Osterer, head of the arts department at Merivale High School, received accolades from CHEO on Jan. 24 for his work with the hospital’s Wear Your Bear contest to kick off the annual fundraising campaign. Osterer said he has been encouraging students to participate in the contest since he was a teacher at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Kanata, nearly 20 years ago. “When I am teaching young graphic designers, part of the process is making sure that they realize they have a social obligation to use their skills to help the community they settle in,” Osterer said. “Each of my students has some connection to CHEO, so the competition is a perfect vehicle to teach

kids how important this is.” In the past 10 years, four of the winners of the design competition have been from Merivale, meaning their image is chosen as that year’s fundraising logo. Osterer received the award along with a number of other residents and businesses who have helped to raise money or provide services for the hospital, including Dymon Self Storage, the St. Albert cheese co-operative and the Robinson family – who hosts an annual golf day. Osterer said he was blown away when he was told he would be awarded. “It’s such a great project,” he said. “We have done all kinds of promotional material for different charities and I rarely repeat the charity, but we do this one every year.”

Ottawan named among Canada’s top principals St. Pius X’s Oake has passion for teaching, working with kids Kristy Wallace

EMC community – Jennifer Oake may have been named one of Canada’s 40 outstanding principals for 2012, but the St. Pius X High School principal said her staff makes the school a better place. “I’ve worked with lots of inspirational people,” said Oake, who’s been the school’s principal for six years. “I’ve been very fortunate to work with fantastic people. I’ve learned something from every one of them.” Simone Oliver, the school’s superintendent, was part of a team that nominated Oake for

the award. She said her nomination was kept secret and the principal didn’t find out until a staff breakfast was held the last day of classes before Christmas. “Jennifer is someone very, very focused,” Oliver said. “She has a shared vision and is very collaborative in her approach that includes families, staff and students. Her vision has a very holistic approach ... and she’s very involved at the board level and at the community level.” According to the Ottawa Catholic District School Board, Oake’s nominators cited her strong relationships

Jennifer Oake, principal of St. Pius X High School, is one of 40 principals from across Canada to be named one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals for 2012. with the school community including staff, students and parents. Oake was also said to pro-

mote a collaborative problemsolving environment and she has a student-centred vision for the school, including try-

ing to bring attention to mental health and wellness issues. “As staff and teachers, one of our goals within the board is to de-stigmatize mental health and train educators about mental health,” Oake said. “Not diagnoses, but knowing the signs and being comfortable referring them to people who can help them.” Oake said she’s always known she wanted to be an educator and later a principal. “I always had a passion for teaching, and I loved working with kids,” she said, adding that she wanted to become a principal so she could create positive change and work with all the students in the school, not just those in her classroom. Oliver said she’s worked with Oake for a number of years and she brings a positive

energy to the hallways of St. Pius X. “She knows specific things about her students, asking about their homework and their classes,” Oliver said. “And we’re talking a school of close to 1,000 students.” Oake said she doesn’t necessarily have advice for other principals, but that it’s important to recognize that principals have very challenging jobs. “What is important is to have a close relationship with people you work with and have a relationship with your superintendent and your staff,” she said. “And, remember that the kids are first.” On Feb. 28, Oake and the other winning principals will be formally honoured at the Canada’s Outstanding Principals Gala Dinner Event, held in Toronto.

EMC news – A one-day event offering the chance to participate in a number of activities for people of all fitness levels, will give Ottawans a different way to raise money to support breast cancer awareness and treatment. The Bust A Move campaign was launched on Jan. 23 at the Ottawa Athletic Club, encouraging residents to start to organize teams and raise money for breast cancer research. The April 21 event will also be replacing the annual Weekend to End Breast Cancer in Ottawa. Bernice Rachkowksi is one of the event organizers and said this event is not to take away from the importance of the previous fundraising cause, but is simply a new way to support the same cause. “All the money stays in Ottawa and is directed towards breast cancer health programs: reducing wait times, preventative programs, education and purchasing equipment all while you are having fun doing a fitness activity,” Rachkowksi said. According to Rachkowksi the event hopes to draw in the same participants and crowds the Weekend to End Breast Cancer has in the past. “We are hoping people with teams that have participated in the weekend for a number of years will want to participate in this,” Rachkowksi said. Each entrant must raise $1,000 to participate, but can form teams for the event. All donations will be accepted on the website. On the event day, Rachkowksi said there will be hundreds of people at the Ottawa Athletic Club participating in a number of different fitness activities, such as yoga or zumba. Everyone will get a yoga mat and then the fun will begin. “It is going to be great. The vibe of the event is going to be amazing, imagine fabulous

Jewish Federation to host mitzvah

She hopes a lot of parents with children on drugs can relate to her story. “I have read from drug addicts themselves but they don’t real know what is going on in their families,” Howell said. “They only know about the highs and lows of them. They can’t see what is happening to their families and those that love them.” She said the death of her son, was an irrevocable dismissal of her love. “It would take years to accept that the death of a child, no matter what age, could never move beyond yesterday for a mother,” Howell wrote. It took years of isolated torment before she accepted that love isn’t always enough and anger makes a potent diet. She credits her healing process to a phone call she received from Karl’s young daughter, who was given up to the courts as a baby after her father’s death, asking to meet her. An award-winning poet, Howell has published travel articles, essays and short stories in three provinces and recently won first prize at the Ottawa Independent Writers yearly poetry reading. Howell is now working on an anthology of connecting stories and essays called Growing Up Strong, which is a tale of her childhood years on the rock in a family of 12, parents who could barely read or write but seemed to carry the strength and wisdom of generations within their genetic code.

EMC community – The community is coming together to do a series of good deeds thanks to the Jewish Federation of Ottawa’s annual Mitzvah Day on Feb. 12. Returning after a one-year hiatus, the day of good deeds will start at 9 a.m. at the Joseph and Rose Ages Family building at 21 Nadolny Sachs Priv. Some of the good deeds this year include preparing milk bags to be crocheted into mats for Haiti and making challah that will be frozen and donated to the Kosher Food Bank. Rena Garshowitz, who is on the organizing committee, said eyeglasses would also be collected for people in Guyana, along with birthday kits for

kids in low-income families. They will also make sandwiches for the homeless at the Ottawa Mission, give blood and participate in Locks of Love – which provides wigs for people who suffer from hair loss due to medical conditions. Garshowitz said the event aims to make people “feel good by doing good.” Aside from the events that will take place across the city, the whole week will include creating and packing kits to help youth better cope with stress and encouraging people to provide a swab for bone marrow transplants. The first Mitzvah Day happened in the capital in 2006 and Garshowitz said it has only grown in popularity since. For more information, visit www.

Alta Vista author Mary Howell chronicled her son’s fatal struggle with addiction in her book, Summers of China White. She is currently searching for someone to publish the book.

Alta Vista poet chronicles son’s struggle with drug addiction Eddie Rwema

EMC Entertainment – Mary Howell, a long-time resident of Alta Vista, spends her retirement years doing her favourite childhood hobby: writing. Currently, Howell is seeking a publisher for what she considers her most important work – a creative non-fiction narrative Summers of China White that describes the 10year addiction of her oldest son Karl to heroin and cocaine, which eventually cost him his life.

It took her five years to write the book and she is now hoping to have it published as soon as she can find a credible publisher. “There are lots of publishers out there but to find one that has an earned reputation is the most difficult thing,” said Howell. “It is a little discouraging that some publishers can’t even get back to you.” Karl had been dead for more than 10 years when his brother Mark suggested to Howell to write his story.



“My son managed to destroy himself on his drug of choice over a 10 year period and my other son asked me to write about it,” said Howell. The body of her son was found on the floor of a crack house in downtown Ottawa and no note was found. “I don’t know whether he committed suicide or whether someone killed him,” Howell recalled. Whatever it was in life that Karl found so hard to face sober, Howell said she will never know.

‘Let’s clear the air’ : Ottawa Public Health recommends smoke-free strategy for city City of Ottawa

EMC News – Ottawa Public Health has released recommendations for a renewed smoke-free strategy designed to protect children and nonsmokers from second-hand smoke while reducing smoking rates. This joint initiative between OPH and bylaw and regulatory services, in consultation with other city departments, includes increased programming for people who want to quit; new smoke-free regulations to protect residents from second-hand smoke and a public awareness and community engagement strategy designed to make Ottawa a healthier city for all. “Tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of preventable death and disease,” said Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawa’s medical officer of health. “In Ottawa, almost 1,000 smokers and non-smokers die each year due to tobacco related illness. What’s more is that almost 19 per cent of residents are exposed to second-hand smoke in areas where they work and play. The renewed strategy will result in healthier people, a cleaner city and smoke-free kids.”

The renewed strategy for a smoke-free Ottawa recommends: • Increasing cessation services and programs for all residents, including priority populations with high smok-

ing rates. • Expanding Ottawa’s smoke-free regulations to make all municipal properties, including parks and beaches, and bar and restaurant patios smoke-free. • Implementing public education campaigns and a community engagement strategy to decrease the number of youth who start smoking, to increase awareness of the dangers of tobacco smoke and to create more smokefree spaces. • These initiatives do not require additional funding for enforcement or to deliver enhanced services.

developing minds building character nurturing faith

Ottawa residents strongly support creating more smoke-free spaces, according to OPH’s consultations and public opinion research. If the recommendations in this report are adopted by city council, Ottawa will join a growing number of municipalities that have made such places smoke-free. “There is no safe level of second-hand smoke, even outdoors. Vulnerable populations such as children, seniors, pregnant women and people with heart and respiratory problems are particularly at risk of adverse health effects caused by secondhand smoke,” said Dr. Levy. At present, almost 15 per cent of residents smoke – approximately 105,000 people. The smoking rate has levelled off since 2005 after steep declines in earlier years. Expanding smoke-free spaces in Ottawa has received strong public support from residents over a number of years. A 2011 Ipsos Reid survey showed that 77 per cent of respondents support smokefree parks and playgrounds; 77 per cent support smokefree municipal properties and 73 per cent support smokefree patios.

Canterbury grad’s work coming to screen near you Eddie Rwema

EMC Entertainment – When Benjamin Su was chosen for a visual arts program at Canterbury High school, little did he know it would be a starting point to a successful animation career. And when Disney’s animated classic Brave is released this coming summer, the Canterbury community should be proud one of their own graduate contributed to this project. Brave is based on an Irish fairy tale and stars Emma Thompson. Born in Taiwan, Su and his family moved to Canada when he was 10 and briefly settled in Regina. Coming from a tropical homeland, adjusting to the weather in Regina was tough. “It was quite a challenging adjustment to go from tropical island to -45 C winter,” said Su. From his childhood Su’s dream was to be an animator. “I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember and was greatly influenced by the Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show and all the Disney feature films growing up,” he said. “I was also into comic books and made many of my own books and cartoons as a child. I have always loved creating charac-

ters with different personalities and bringing them to life on paper.” Through out high school and college, Su said he was involved with creating cartoons for the school papers. He joined Canterbury High School in the mid ’90s when his family relocated to Ottawa. Going to Canterbury High School was a life changer for him, Su said. “Being surrounded by so many talented artists who were equally passionate about drawing was both an inspiration and encouragement,” he said. Su admits Ottawa will always hold a very special place in his heart. “My passion for animation started here and I also met my wife in Ottawa,” he said. Su added that it was at Canterbury that he found out about Sheridan College’s animation program and was able to build as decent portfolio with the guidance of the teachers. “My school counselor also got me a three months co-op program at a 2-D animation studio and that experience really opened my eyes as to what I was getting into,” he said. Su landed his first full time job right after graduating from Sheridan’s computer animation class back in 2003.

Then C.O.R.E Animation Studios’ in Toronto was making Canada’s first theatre released computer animated feature film and it was going to be a $180 million budget Disney movie. “I was hired on near the beginning of the production and it gave me the opportunity to wear many different hats on the movie,” he said. “I was able to do 3-D design and modeling on some of the main characters of the movie. I eventually moved on to doing some character animation and was promoted to be a lead crowd animator.” His dream had always been to work for Pixar, but he knew it was difficult to get in. “I was working in Los Angeles at Sony Animation Studios and my contract was coming to an end when I decided to apply to Pixar,” he said. “Fortunately I was hired to work on Toy Story 3 as my first project and I was part of a very special team selected to work on the climax sequence of the movie.” The first Toy Story was one of his inspirations to get into computer animation and a chance to work on the trilogy felt like his career came to a full circle. His first movie went on to be successful and won an Academy Award.

Looking at love through lens of art Kristy Wallace

EMC Entertainment – Wearing white and standing on white canvas, 21-year-old Robin Lynch will be immerse herself in red paint as she does a performance art piece at Patrick John Mills’ latest exhibit, I Love You. She describes the dance as a “giant, glorious mess.” “Basically the piece is all about the obsessive compulsive and self-destructive version of

love,” Lynch said. “You’re tied up in it, and you can’t escape from it. Lynch’s take will be one of the depictions of love displayed at Mills’ exhibit, which started Jan. 19 and runs until Feb. 25. While Lynch might show the negative emotions associated with love, artist and gallery owner Patrick John Mills said there will also be upbeat subject matter through showcased paintings.

“There are some beautiful paintings and there’s some lovely work and a real diversity,” Mills said, “but also a lot of cutting edge and provocative work that has a very unique perspective on the words ‘I love you.’ ” Lynch will be performing at the gallery at 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 2 during the First Thursdays Art Walk which runs from 6 to 9 p.m. For more information on the gallery, visit the website at

Entering the Year of the Dragon at T&T Supermarket


Submitted photo

Artist Robin Lynch will be performing at Hintonburg’s Patrick John Mills Gallery on Feb. 2 as part of the exhibit I Love You, which runs until Feb. 25.

Even though Monday January 23rd was the official start of the Chinese New Year, T&T Supermarket on Hunt Club Road in Ottawa South offered celebrations and special events to their customers and guests on Saturday and Sunday (January 28th and 29th) to allow working families to join with their children in welcoming the year of the dragon in proper style. To be exact this year (number 4709 on the Chinese calendar) is the year of the Black Water Dragon. As has been the case for the last two New Year’s celebrations at T&T, Ottawa residents of every background have been very supportive of these events according to store manager Jimmy Wen. Judging by the crowds at T&T on Sunday, which were as large as the ceremonial lion was long, this New Year is looking very positive indeed. T&T’s central operations manager Calvin Liao and Jimmy Wen welcomed the Minister-Counsellor of the Chinese Embassy, Jin Liu to the noon-hour ceremonies. Mr. Liu presided over the Children’s Calligraphy Challenge finale and presented the

God of fortune, Jin Liu, Calvin Liao (T&T Central Operations Mgr), Jimmy Wen (T&T Store Manager) with children from Calligraphy contest gifts and awards on behalf of T&T Supermarket to the young masters of the ink and brush-pen. He then took part in a Hong Kong New Year’s tradition of writing down his hopes for the upcoming year and placing this card on a Wishing Tree mural. In China the wish notes are tied to a piece of fruit and tossed onto a living tree. If the wish sticks to a branch it will come true according to lore. Minister-Counsellor Liu welcomed the Success Lion Dance Troupe and he performed the ritual of Hoi Gong, where the pupils of the eyes on the ceremonial dancing lion must be painted on or dotted to awaken its spirit. The dance troupe then performed a lively dance with the lion throughout the store

accompanied by a gentleman dressed as the traditional god of fortune who, with the help of Jin Liu handed out red pockets to everyone. The brightly coloured paper pockets contained a chocolate coin in symbolic reference to the wealth and good fortune they are intended to bring to the recipients. The majority of shoppers were more than happy to stop filling their carts to watch the spirited performance of the Success Lion troupe and to touch the robes or beard of the god of fortune to ensure that his magic rubbed off on them. Operations Manager Calvin Liao, Jimmy Wen and the entire staff of T&T send out their best wishes to all for a prosperous and healthy New Year. 382449/0202

Winchester enjoying veteran’s role with Senators By Rob Brodie Time flies, it’s often been said, when you’re having fun. Maybe that’s why — even at the ripe old hockey age of 28 — Jesse Winchester might seem a little young for the veteran’s role with the Ottawa Senators. But given the team’s roster turnover in the past year, the native of nearby Long Sault, Ont., has quickly moved up the ranks in terms of seniority with the team. Four years into his career with the Senators, the graduate of Colgate University in upstate New York — who’s been sidelined recently with a concussion — still feels blessed to be playing the game he loves so close to home. He took some time out with Score to talk about that and a whole lot more: Q: Does it really seem like you’re already in your fourth full season with the Senators? A: When you think about all the places you’ve been and all the games you’ve played … it does seem like it’s been a lot (of time). But if you just ask me quickly, it feels like I got here yesterday. Q: Do you feel like you can provide a leadership/mentoring role to the younger players now on the team? A: I’ve learned the day-today routines and I have a grasp of what it takes to make your body feel good (conditioningwise) and that kind of stuff. So if anybody has any questions, I try to help out as best as I can. I believe in conditioning and being committed, and those are little things that might not always get

Though he’s currently sidelined with a concussion, Jesse Winchester enjoys providing a mentorship role for some of his younger Ottawa Senators teammates (Photo by Rich Lam/ Getty Images). noticed. Q: The number of former NCAA players on this team keeps growing. How does

tell you that off the ice, you get stronger. It’s a place where you grow as a person as well as a hockey player. You become more independent and ready to take on life after school. Q: A lot of the college players here went to easternbased schools. Any fun rivalry talk between some of you? A: Greener (Colin Greening) is my buddy on the plane and we sit together. He went to my rival school (Cornell), so we had some pretty big games against them. When we played at Cornell, the fans there would throw Colgate toothpaste at us. Cornell’s (nickname) is the Big Red, so when they played at our place, our fans would throw Big Red chewing gum at them and just litter the ice. We reminisce about that kind of stuff, for sure. Q: How much have you enjoyed playing in the NHL so close to home? A: I’m very, very fortunate to have been given the opportunity here. I’m thankful for it every day and I just want to be here as long as I possibly can. Q: How heavy do the ticket requests get from friends and family? A: I’m pretty good that way. I have a ton of family. My mom’s side is pretty much all in Ottawa, and I try to get as many people

out to a game a year with my tickets that we’re given. Q: Your favourite Senators memory to date? A: I remember Matt Carkner’s triple overtime goal (against

Pittsburgh in 2010) to send the series back here. That was pretty memorable. I remember my first goal, my first game and going to Sweden with the team to start my first year here.

ST. LOUIS BLUES Tuesday, February 7, 7:30 p.m., Sportsnet East With former Stanley Cup winner Ken Hitchcock now behind the bench, the surprising Blues are challenging for top spot in the Western Conference. St. Louis is thriving in a big way on the goaltending work of Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott, a former Sens stopper. They also operate behind a solid blue-line corps that includes the likes of the underrated Kevin Shattenkirk, along with Alex Pietrangelo,

Carlo Colaiacovo and Barret Jackman. Up front, the Blues present a balanced attack led by David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Jason Arnott. Meanwhile, Alex Steen is one of the NHL’s top two-way talents at forward.

NASHVILLE PREdATORS Thursday, February 9, 7:30 p.m. Sportsnet East With a typically balanced attack, the Predators entered the NHL all-star break as the league’s hottest team and are right in the thick of the Western Conference playoff chase. Up front, Nashville turns to Martin Erat, David Legwand and former Senators fan favourite Mike Fisher to generate goals. Rookie Craig Smith has been an early-season offensive surprise and earned himself an all-star weekend invite. Few

teams are blessed with a much blue-line talent as Nashville, a group led by all-star Shea Weber and Ryan Suter. In goal, the Predators rely heavily on Pekka Rinne, one of the NHL’s top stoppers.

WE FRIDAY FEB. 3 Presented by:

Petr Mrazek



Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
