Chinese seniors prepare to usher in Year of the Rooster BY Jessica Cunha

The Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is preparing to usher in the Year of the Rooster and celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary on Sunday, Feb. 5. The Chinese New Year event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Richcraft Recreation Complex Kanata, 4101 Innovation Dr. The festivities will feature a traditional lion dance at 2 p.m., performances by local musical groups, food and culture displays, a silent auction, door prizes and family games for all ages. A “very special” performance by youth, adults and seniors will take place at 1 p.m. that people

won’t want to miss, said Wen Jean Ho, president and founder of the support centre. “It’s going to be fun. I’m so excited for this year,” she said. More youth than ever before are participating in the 2017 Chinese New Year as volunteers and performers after a program began last year on “bridging the generations” between adolescents and older adults, said Ho. Youth have designed the space for the event and had a large role in the planning and preparation for the celebration. Others have signed on as greeters, sound system operators and performers. “This year the youth are volunteering,” said Ho. “I’m so happy to see that. It truly shows the generations (involved).”

A crowd of people gather to watch a lion dance at last year’s Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre’s Chinese New Year celebration. This year’s event takes place Feb. 5. Those born under the sign of the Rooster — in 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017 — are often characterized as organized, meticulous and detail-oriented, said Ho. The Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre began hosting Chinese New Year events in 2010 as a way for the Chinese community and the wider population to celebrate the im-

portant Chinese festival. Past events have drawn large crowds to the celebrations. This year, the group hopes to attract more people, particularly from the rural area, said Ho. “What we want is for everyone to come out and have a good time,” she said. Tickets for the event are $3, and those ages 10 and under get in for free. For details, visit

Coldest Night of the Year walk for women’s shelter takes place Feb. 25 Continued from page 1

The walk, which can be completed in two, five or 10-kilometre stretches, begins at the Kanata Recreation Complex and aims to build understanding among participants, said Guerin. “We’ve been asked by several people, ‘Why aren’t you hosting this in the summer? You’d probably get a better turnout,’” she said. “That defeats the purpose of the event — to really feel the cold and build that empathy, knowing what it feels like to be out in the middle of the winter at night.” The WOCRC was approached by Blue Sea Philanthropy, a registered Canadian charity that hosts Coldest Night of the Year

walks across the country, to host its own walk. “Violence against women is the leading cause of homelessness for women and children in Canada,” said Martine Dore, senior manager of counselling and VAW (violence against women) services at the resource centre. “Any one of us could know someone who’s experienced violence and this is a tangible and visible way to support them.” Funds raised at the Kanata walk will go to Chrysalis House, a 25-bed shelter for women and their dependents fleeing violence. The goal is to raise $20,000, and see more than 150 walkers participate, said Guerin. The event is open to all genders and all ages. “The experience of abuse

that there’s actually a whole community there for you, that really has a deep impact.” CHRYSALIS HOUSE

Chrysalis House is a large, bright, welcoming space — not exactly what a person pictures when they hear the word shelter, said Dore. It’s equipped with a playroom, lounge area, private

meeting spaces, a spacious kitchen and dining room, a private outdoor area, and a wing where the bedrooms are located. According to the Canadian Women’s Foundation, about 3,500 women and their 2,700 children sleep in shelters on any given night because it isn’t safe at home. See CHRYSALIS, page 5

The Coldest Night of the Year walk for Chrysalis House takes place on Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at the Kanata Recreation Complex in Hall A, 100 Charlie Rogers Pl. Registration opens at 4:30 p.m. and the walk begins at 5:30 p.m. Participants can choose from two, five and 10-kilometre distances. A warm meal will be served to all walkers and volunteers. To date, 74 walkers have registered and raised $6,400 toward the $20,000 goal. To register or to donate online, or for more details on the event, visit location/kanata.

Chrysalis House provides safety, resources Continued from page 4

“A lot of women have fears about shelters. They're worried that it’s not a safe, positive environment for children,” said Dore. “I would really want them to know that it’s a great place to bring children. Most children who are here remember their time here very, very fondly. And it’s a time where they can feel free and learn new skills and develop new friendships.” The average length of stay at Chrysalis is about three months. Last year, the shelter supported more than 150 women and their dependents of all ages. One woman brought her mother, who lived with her, to Chrysalis when she left her home. “It’s a temporary stage where they can figure out what their needs are to move forward

in their lives,” said Dore. “The most risky period of time for women is often the first three months she leaves a relationship where there’s been abuse. (This statement) is not to scare women, but to let them know there’s resources for that time.” The shelter provides women with access to resources and agencies to help them with whatever they need, including child services, legal advice and counselling. Chrysalis also partners with other local charities and groups, such as the Kanata Food Cupboard, which provides women leaving the shelter with food; Pyjama Patrol, which provides new sleepwear for children and teens; and Safe Pet Ottawa, which will place women’s pets in a foster home during their time at the shelter so they don’t have to leave their animals behind. “It’s about safety planning,

Chrysalis House, a 25-bed women’s shelter, is equipped with a large spacious kitchen and dining room, among other amenities, for women and their dependents. it’s about knowing what your resources are,” said Dore. “And what I really want women to know is that they're not alone at that time.” The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre has a large violence-against-women program that offers shelter, peer

support, individual and group counselling, transitional housing, referrals, and resources. To learn more about the services, visit, email info@ or call 613-591-3686.

On Wednesday January 25th it was my turn and Council enjoyed a beautiful rendition of the anthem by Diana Sharp, a Kanata North Resident who is an opera singer and vocal music teacher. Mayor Watson followed with his annual “State of the City Address”, providing an overview of 2016 and things to come for 2017 (go to Ottawa 2017 to find out what’s happening). I was pleased that he included my motion on Autonomous Vehicles and that along with Terry Matthews he will be going to Queen’s Park to urge implementation of the Centre of Excellence here.

City cherry-picking wildlife protocol measures To the editor,

Re: “Petition calls for halt to KNL tree cutting,”, Jan. 23. The wildlife mitigation measures the city says it’s following have been carefully cherry picked from its “Protocol for Wildlife Protection during Construction.” Missing are those, and I quote directly from the protocol, that recommend the “installation of appropriate nesting boxes around the periphery of the site, to compensate for nesting sites (e.g., cavity

trees, squirrel dreys) that will be removed.” The idea that animals are able to just move on to other natural habitat and establish new nests in the middle of winter is ridiculous. How can wildlife construct new nests or dreys when there are no leaves on the trees to make these nests? How will they be able to find the limited number of trees with cavities that are not already occupied? How can burrowing animals dig new dens when the ground is frozen? The protocol also recom-

mends that “pre-arrangements" be made with wildlife rehabilitators and qualified veterinarians to ensure appropriate care of orphaned or injured wildlife.” None of the wildlife rehabilitators in this area has been contacted, so it’s not surprising that the list of mitigation measures now only mentions veterinary care. Given that veterinarians are not authorized to provide ongoing care for wildlife, it’s likely the only ‘care’ given would be to euthanize the animal. If the city wants to reclaim

To the editor,

Re: “Petition calls for halt to KNL tree cutting,”, Jan. 23. I signed the petition demanding the immediate halt of winter clear cutting by KNL in the South March Highlands. The fact that this ecologically sensitive area, sacred to the Anishinaabe (Algonquin) and

loved by so many, fell into the hands of developers decades ago is a blight on the city of Ottawa. In my opinion, all development in the South March Highlands should be stopped. In the short-term, at the very least, this cruel winter clear cut has to stop. I question the claim made by Jack Stirling, consultant for KNL,

that KNL needs to get work done “within certain windows.” The City of Ottawa issued the permit to cut, violating the city’s own wildlife protocol. It’s high time for Mayor Jim Watson to do the right thing and stop this brutal and unnecessary winter clear cut. Dr. Julie Comber Ottawa

Developer, city miss showcasing best practices To the editor,

Re: “Petition calls for halt to KNL tree cutting,” Kourier-Standard, Jan. 26. Mayor Jim Watson and the city council agreed to the “Protocol for Wildlife Protection during Construction.” The protocol was developed to reduce harm to all wildlife, not just endangered species. In fact, there would have been no need for a protocol as there is already legislation

to protect endangered species. This was an opportunity for KNL, the city and Mayor Watson to showcase the best practices within the protocol rather than a widely condemned failure to do so. As outlined in the protocol, tree clearing should be postponed until the late summer and early fall, the least sensitive time for wildlife. The city could have stipulated that the clearing not

start until October 2017, as a condition of approval. This would have met the requirement for the protection of Blanding’s turtles as well as giving the majority of all other wildlife the best chance of survival. What was another nine months wait for a development project that has been in the works for decades? Anita Utas Ottawa

compensation an excellent idea To the editor,

Re: “Petition calls for halt to KNL tree cutting,” Kourier-Standard, Jan. 26. As one of the concerned citizens who signed this petition, I want to clarify that the petition did not originate from Greenspace Alliance, but from private citizens across Ottawa who share a concern for the impact on wildlife of clearcutting in the depths of winter. It was the city that gave the permit in December for this tree clearing — such bad timing, as it opened the door for KNL to proceed in January, in clear contravention of the city’s own wildlife protocol. The need to begin site preparation now is extremely puzzling, given that this developer has not met the required condition of having an approved stormwater plan for phases 7 and 8 of their Kanata Lakes development. We recall witnessing the clearing of the forest north of the Beaver Pond in January 2011. That land has sat for six years awaiting the same stormwater plan to be approved. So what’s the rush? The high level of community response should not come as a surprise, as KNL’s development of this area in the South March Highlands has been extremely controversial for more than a decade. The suggestion that Mayor Jim Watson should arrange for “restorative compensation” elsewhere for the loss of this green space is an excellent idea. Residents of Ottawa are appalled and sickened by the sight of this kind of destruction of a beautiful forest and wildlife habitat, and this would go a long way to restoring our confidence in the city’s planning department. It’s never too late to do the right thing.

Bad way to say goodbye


yril Leeder was one of four men who dreamed a dream — an NHL franchise for Ottawa — and made it come true. The Ottawa Senators are now marking their 25th year in the league. Management decided to create a Ring of Honour this year; a place for the names of unforgettable team builders and players to have a permanent place above the Sens home ice. On Jan. 24, they placed Bryan Murray’s name on the ring — the first of many to come. On Jan. 25, they fired Cyril Leeder — a man whose name deserves a spot on that same Ring of Honour. During a press conference naming Tom Anselmi the new team president, Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said Leeder was not offered another position in the organization. That makes no sense. Anselmi helped the Maple Leafs and Raptors move into the Air Canada Centre, and the Sens hope to move to LeBreton Flats in the coming years. It’s one thing to think there is a better person to be team president.

It’s another thing to suggest an experienced executive such as Leeder has nothing to give to the franchise. The firing of Leeder won’t sit well with many of the team’s fans. Social media lit up after the announcement, with many people questioning the cold, calculated move. Some pointed to the efforts Leeder led when Melnyk needed a liver transplant in 2015. Saving a life couldn’t save a job. The decision to fire Leeder shouldn’t affect our appreciation of his record. A founder, he moved up the corporate ladder as his skills warranted. Bruce Firestone, the leader of the foursome that brought the NHL back to Ottawa, tweeted that Leeder saved the franchise on at least three occasions — suggesting Leeder’s management skills were often hidden from public view. Leeder deserves to have his name on the Ring of Honour — and Melnyk should be standing on the red carpet at centre ice as the team honours him.

Let’s keep an eye on the Byward Market


n the face of it, the Byward Market does not look like it needs saving. There is an endless variety of bars and restaurants there and it’s busy at night. Traffic is awful but parking is not bad if you’re willing to pay for it. It’s close to major hotels, the Rideau Centre and the National Gallery of Canada. Tourists are drawn to it. But you wonder. Can a commercial neighbourhood survive when it only has restaurants in it? No business is more precarious. You know that from all the openings and closings, the comings and goings you notice on each visit. The shawarma restaurant is now a sushi restaurant. There was fine dining at this spot; now there’s a barbecue joint. Another barbecue joint is not there any more. There’s a restaurant on Clarence Street that has changed

Little businesses that are not restaurants are scattered about — a small coffee shop here, a kitchen store there, a gallery, Funny Town a paper store, antiquarian books, magazines, rugs, pet supplies.

Mental health affects us all A BRYNNA few years ago, those who knew me well would likely describe me as a bright light. Full of energy and enthusiasm, I would zip around the world in a frenzy. “I forgot how fast you walk,” noted a university pal who came to visit me years after graduation, as he puffed to keep up with me in my high heels. For most of my adult life, I’d get up at 4:30 a.m. daily — the battle hour — and make breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’d write thousands of words before noon. As mother, I’d meet the kids from the school bus and go from one activity to another, meet up with friends for coffee later in the evening or go to one of my volunteer gigs and still have time for my husband before crashing in bed. To everyone outside, I looked like an unparalleled success. What I failed to recognize was the constant anxiety sitting under the surface. I’d had it most of my life, propelling me forward, pushing, even nagging me to accomplish things that wouldn’t have been otherwise possible. Never stopping for a moment to meditate or breathe, I first started to note the anxiety as a problem after my third child was born. Short of sleep and once again tied to the home for all things baby, I continued to take on projects and assignments. When the time came, I found sleep difficult. I’d wake in the middle of the night panicking about a deadline. In the morning, with waves of fear washing over me, I couldn’t get out of bed until I talked myself into it. I’d spend all the early


Capital Muse hours of the morning nervously mapping out the scenarios of my day, planning how I’d manage to act “normal.” After about six months, I went to see a business coach. She had all kinds of great advice for me about how to grow my freelance business. But she had a caveat: “You need to take six months off.” Six months! Was she out of her mind? I’d taken years to build my freelance work into a career. “You’re burning out,” she said. “I’ve seen this many times before. You have three children, you’re taking on too much work. You need a break.” I wrote her off as a skeptic and moved on. A few weeks later in my doctor’s office for something entirely unrelated, the medicine woman has this to say: “You’re burning out. I think you should take some time off.” My husband, my mother, even my young kids were begging me to step back a bit. I became angry with all of them and kept pushing. And then one day, I had a panic attack. I thought it was a stroke. I was working at home. The nanny was upstairs in the

kitchen with the baby. I crawled up to her, completely numb and hyperventilating and asked her to call an ambulance. A few months later, still pushing, still living in a state of daily panic, I burned out. Completely. In place of the buzz of anxiety there was a dark hole. I went from constantly thinking, “What if I fail?” to “I’ve failed and I don’t really care.” Depression. Depression is the black hole that makes you care about absolutely nothing. Anxiety, depression’s best buddy, likes to rise up and panic you once in a while so you go back to hiding under the duvet, which is precisely what I did for a number of months. It’s hard to climb

Those interested who possess a valid OHIP card and do not presently have a family doctor, may register at the Kanata clinic at 1108 Klondike Road on Saturday, Jan. 28/17 or Feb.4/17 between 9am-12:30pm.

back from that. It’s hard to go out in the world and pretend it’s not happening. It’s hard to keep your friends and your marriage and your kids loving you when you become the black hole. I’m sharing this because it’s the human experience. The more we talk about it, the more we normalize it. Modest estimates suggest one in five Canadians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. During January’s mental health awareness week, so many people put themselves on the line by sharing their stories. And that’s courageous. When we’re suffering, it’s hard to reach out. Most of us can’t access the services we need to help us cope and, hopefully, recover. They don’t exist or they’re not funded. I’ve been blessed with some loyal friends and a supportive family, who have helped me through the darkness. I’m still not as zippy as I once was. I don’t walk as fast, and I no longer get up at battle hour. But I’ve realized that maybe life isn’t meant to be lived at a frenetic, perfectionist’s pace. Slow is good. Slow is reflective and meaningful. Slow is how one can, hopefully, heal.

Allan Hubley Positive Change for Kanata South

City Councillor Kanata South Week in Review Last week I was asked on CFRA why I was troubled by people protesting the work the city is doing to prevent raw sewage from getting into our rivers. This work involves digging a hole in a park in Rideau Rockcliffe and tunneling underground to install large diversion tanks. My response was that our community lived through massive construction that impacted not just a park but your day to day lives and what I heard over and over from residents of Kanata South was thank you for fixing the sewers. I told the host and CFRA listeners how very proud I was of our community for enduring those years of work so to have someone demanding we ask taxpayers to spend extra millions to move the entrance to a park in a less fortunate neighbourhood like Vanier, was to me, shameful. Thank you to the organizers of the Young’s Pond Broomball Tournament and Winter Carnival for all their hard work organizing this great community event! If you have an event that you would like me to share with the community, please send me the details to . 2017 Project As a 2017 project I am pleased to invite you to join me in documenting the people, places and activities that make Kanata South a great place to live, work and play.

McCrimmon appointed to Transport role BY Jessica Cunha

Jack MacLaren Member of Provincial Parliament Carleton-Mississippi Mills

Kanata-Carleton MP Karen McCrimmon’s parliamentary secretary role has been switched up after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a number of changes on Jan. 26. McCrimmon was appointed parliamentary secretary to Minister of Transport Marc Garneau following her 13 months in the same role for the minister of Veterans Affairs and the associate minister of National Defence. “It’s a very interesting role and Transport is a huge file these

days, it’s critical,” said McCrimmon. “The parliamentary secretary role is really interesting. You're helping both the minister and you're helping the committee. You're really more of a co-ordinator and someone who can find the information, find the processes, find tools that they can use in order to get to whatever their goal is.” With an environmental assessment scheduled for light rail transit to Kanata, rural transportation issues and autonomous vehicle testing, transportation is a big topic in her riding, she said.

“The advancement of technology in transportation, it’s huge,” she said. “In Kanata there’s a lot of that going on right now.” Top priorities in the ministerial mandate letter for Transport include: • improving public transit and other green infrastructure; • delivery of a new infrastructure fund for investments in roads, bridges, transportation corridors, ports and border gateways; • proposing measure to reinforce railway safety; • reviewing the Canadian grain transportation system;

• improving marine safety; • reviewing changes made by the previous government to the Fisheries Act and the Navigable Waters Protection Act, restoring lost protections and incorporating modern safeguards; • formalizing a moratorium on crude oil tanker traffic on British Columbia’s north coast. “I'm going to have to work really hard to learn this file,” said McCrimmon. “It’s huge and there are a lot of new things happening when it comes to transportation. I have a lot to learn, but that doesn’t scare me at all.” See TRANSPORTATION, page 11

Kanata-Carleton MP Karen McCrimmon has been appointed parliamentary secretary to Minister of Transport Marc Garneau.

Cap-and-trade boondoggle! I hope everyone had a calm and restful Christmas and happy new year, because it looks like 2017 is off to a rough start. The Government’s cap-and-trade tax went into effect on the 1st of January. The tax is basically a scheme to make everyone pay for carbon dioxide emissions. Fuel prices have already gone up. Gas at most pumps was up to $1.16 a litre. The cost of heating your home is going up by about $7 a month, and this is on top of the already ridiculously high cost of hydro. The cost of everything else is going up too. Almost all products in Canada are shipped to a store or to your doorstep by trucks. So if the cost of gas goes up, the cost of shipping does too. Business have to pass those costs on to their customers. This is why the Auditor-General of Ontario estimated that over the next two years households will pay almost $300 more indirect costs everything. These higher costs are going to hurt the poor most, and enrich the government by about $2 billion a year. The cap-and-trade tax is not going to be offset by reductions in any of our other taxes. So as we all get poorer, the government will get richer. The next election just can’t come soon enough!

Transportation infrastructure needs modernizing, redesign: McCrimmon


Many of the 34 parliamentary secretaries appointed have taken on new roles, including Orléans MP Andrew Leslie, who previously served as chief government whip, while some remained with their current portfolio and others were moved out. Leslie was appointed parliamentary secretary to the minister of Foreign Affairs with special responsibilities to support the Canada-U.

When it comes to rail, aviation and marine safety, “I bring a background of risk management,” McCrimmon said. “I've done all that training, it’s in my pocket. I have some of those skills I can bring to the fore.” The biggest challenge, she said, will be upgrading a transportation system that is 150 years old. “It desperately needs not just modernizing, it has to be totally redesigned,” said McCrimmon. “We’re going to have to make some tough decisions about how we want this really to work. “I think the constraint is going to be time. At the same time we’re solving all of today's problems, we want to make sure we’re building something for tomorrow.” On her work as parliamentary secretary to the minister of Veterans Affairs and the associate minister of National Defence, she said she’s happy with what they were able to achieve in the government’s first year. “I think we got a huge start opening nine new (Veterans Affairs) offices, hiring, I think we’re up to 350 new staff, new improvements in benefits. We got a few things done on the mandate, and trying to get things started is often the hardest part,” she said. “I saw a lot of people who want to make a difference. Now we need to let them. We need to give them the resources and tools they need to make a difference and that’s what we’re working on doing.”

I am confident they will complement our current cabinet strengths and help build an even better future for all Canadians.”

Brigil applies for revision to north Kanata build Builder wants zoning amendment for higher density, less parking BY Jessica Cunha

Brigil Construction has applied for a site-plan revision and zoning bylaw amendment to allow for higher density and less parking in a north-Kanata development. The construction company wants to build a four-storey, 79-unit condominium at 124 Battersea Cres. near Kanata Avenue and Richardson Side Road. The site currently has two three-storey, 12- and 16-unit buildings, a community building and a 79-unit condominium, which is under construction. The proposed condo would

feature a rooftop patio, private balconies and large windows, similar to the building under construction. The current zoning allows for 100-units per hectare. The proposed condo – to be located in the northwest portion of the property – would take the total number of units past the density cap to 134 units per hectare. In Brigil’s site-plan proposal, the company says an analysis on the upgrades to the Signature Ridge Pump Station – which deals with sanitary sewer water in the area – and its capacity “confirmed that the system can accommodate an increase in density beyond the 100 units/hectare without

impacting other development in the area.” The pump station’s previous capacity, before the upgrades were made, was listed as a reason for the original density cap, according to the submission. Brigil’s development is part of the Broughton subdivision and was originally approved in 2013 as a condominium development consisting of eight buildings with 12 to 16 units each. After two of the originally planned buildings were constructed, the developer filed a site plan revision in 2015 for “an alternative product with underground parking and elevators,” according to documents submitted as part of the zoning-amendment application. The first 79-unit condo building was approved in 2016 and construction is ongoing.

A look at the city’s mascots “A mascot was a fun and friendly way to reach out to young people on how to be safe and use the transit system,” Scrimgeour wrote in an email. The owl figure was chosen because an owl is a symbol of protection and wisdom. OC Owl is still an ambassador for the Transecure program, which includes the night stop, the safe stop and the “Let OC Transpo Know” programs.

Are you constantly turning up the volume on the television? This makes watching television challenging for you and loud to people around you.

Do you find yourself constantly raising the volume on your television? Do commercials seem louder? Is your family always asking you to turn the volume down? Hearing the television can be a common problem even for people who can hear everything else just fine. Fortunately, the rechargeable Phonak AudĂŠo™ B-R hearing aid has been specifically designed to improve your television listening experience, allowing you to enjoy the shows you love without disrupting the people around you. Frequently turning up the volume on the television can be one of the first signs of an undetected high-frequency hearing loss. This type of hearing loss is caused by damage to microscopic cells deep within our inner ears called “hair cells.â€? Normally, these hair cells detect incoming sounds and change them into information our brain uses to hear. With a high-frequency hearing loss, the hair cells that let us hear soft, high-pitched speech sounds are damaged, which can make speech sound unclear or mumbled.

Most people won’t notice this drop in speech clarity right away, because they are usually listening to only one or two people in a quiet area, and get plenty of visual cues from the person talking. When watching television, there can be loud music in the background, people speaking fast or with an accent, and you cannot always see the face of the person talking. While turning up the volume helps a little, it will not improve the clarity you are missing out on.

Fortunately, a new hearing aid has been designed with this problem in mind. Programmed to fit your unique listening needs, the rechargeable Phonak AudÊo B-R hearing aids will significantly improve your understanding of television, while keeping the volume at a much more comfortable level. These advanced devices are completely selfadjusting with no buttons to push, dials to turn, or batteries to change. You’ll be free to enjoy the shows you love while hearing your absolute best. Connect Hearing wants to help you hear the TV better. Call 1.888.408.7377 or visit today and register for your free hearing test*. Qualified candidates will receive a no-obligation trial of the Phonak AudÊo B rechargeable hearing aid, so you can hear for yourself how these hearing aids will help you hear your favourite show.

P A M C E D I U G 2017 Summer is just around the corner, so be camp ready On a chilly day like today, it’s hard to believe that the warm weather will be back in a few short weeks. Summer is just around the corner, and it will soon be time for your children to go off to summer camp or to day camp. Have you started thinking about what you’d like them to do? You’d better get busy, because now is the time to register if you want those early-bird prices. SPECIAL CAMPS

First of all, find out from your children exactly what they have in mind when they think about going to camp. Of course, traditional camps are always available; they are ideal for children who love a bit of everything. Other camps are more specialized, and some offer activities that are really off the beaten path. Think about the following possibilities: sports, outdoor activities, dance, martial arts, sciences, languages, performing arts, visual arts, music, cooking, archeology, soccer, horse riding, deep-sea diving, circus, and the list goes on. FORMULAS

The next step is to find out if your children are ready to go to sleep-away camp, where they can stay for a week or more, or if they prefer day camp, so they can come home every night. Some specialized camps welcome families or special-needs children who might have disabilities, be ill, or require specialized care.


When your children have made their choices and are registered, give yourself a pat on the back. Attending summer camp — with all its challenges, experiences, and learning opportunities — will have a positive effect on your children’s development. Children who attend camp develop their socializing skills, emotional intelligence, selfconfidence, physical abilities, and environmental awareness.

Day camp tips for parents School is barely out before it’s time to start the kids at day camp. All summer long, they will be able to do a variety of activities, go on group outings, and make lots of new friends. Here are a few tips to help your children enjoy this enriching experience, which they are sure to remember for the rest of their lives. First of all, it’s possible that your children will feel a little nervous about going to camp, especially if it’s their first time. Reassure them by describing all the activities that will be organized throughout the summer, emphasizing the ones you know they’ll prefer. Remind them that this is a perfect opportunity to experience wonderful adventures with other children of the same age. On the first day of camp, start them off on the right foot by giving them a good breakfast. They can take their own lunches and snacks or they can buy food if a cafeteria is available. Be careful of allergies — some camps, just like schools, ban peanuts. Every evening before bedtime, invite your children to participate in the preparation of their backpacks. Make sure they pack sunscreen, a hat or baseball cap, and a good pair of shoes. As most camps have swimming in their programs, ensure they also include a swimsuit, towel, and a change of clothing. Some pools require swim caps to be worn. You might also be required to supply life vests or swim floats if your children need them. Last but not least, go over basic safety rules with your children, and be sure to tell them to have a good time. After all, day camp is the perfect place to create unforgettable memories.

At summer camp, kids get to engage in a variety of stimulating activities with people their age. And beyond all the fun and fresh air, attending summer camp can help kids develop skills and tools that will last them a lifetime. Registration season is in full swing, so here are five reasons why sending your children to camp this summer is a smart move for their future! 1. BUILDS SOCIAL SKILLS

At summer camp kids are encouraged to share their ideas, values and interests with other campers. They get to step out of their normal routine and spend time with people they wouldn’t have met otherwise. By opening up to differences and making new friends, they’ll learn about social harmony—a surefire way to forge lifelong bonds! 2. FOSTERS INDEPENDENCE

Going to camp means spending time away from Mom and Dad. Your kids will broaden their horizons by facing situations that they wouldn’t usually encounter back home. They’ll have to make decisions and live with the consequences of their choices. Being faced with these new experiences devel-

Choosing the right summer camp A child will experience a real change of scene when participating in a summer camp. Are you in the middle of planning your children’s stay at a summer camp? Before making your choice, it’s important to ask yourself a few questions. Summer camps, day camps, nature classes and specialized camps are just some of the options open to you and your children. All you have to do is find a camp that will answer their needs and suit your budget. The length of stay, the quality of the infrastructure and the food, safety, programs offered, the training that the staff receives and the costs of registering will influence your choice. If your children want to spend one or more weeks in different surroundings, a summer camp would be ideal. Outdoor activities, hiking trips, excursions, cultural outings and meeting new friends will give them a complete change of scene. Nights spent in a dormitory or in a tent

will be another unique experience. Perhaps your children prefer to have fun with friends during the day and come home in the evening. If so, a summer spent at a day camp would be just the thing. They can join in organized games, go on supervised visits to tourist attractions and spend afternoons at the pool. The duration of this type of camp can range from one to several weeks. A specialized camp would give your children the opportunity of perfecting their knowledge in a subject which interests them. Sports, culture and the sciences are among the most popular ones. For a shorter stay, nature classes offer outdoor programs which are both recreational and educational. Activities are usually spread over a period of one or two days and include nature studies, climbing, water sports and wilderness survival skills.

State of city address lauds growth in arts, autonomous car industry BY JENNIFER MCINTOSH

In a marathon state of the city address that lasted five times longer than the first council meeting of 2017, Mayor Jim Watson said there’s going to be a lot to celebrate this year. Not surprisingly, Watson brought up the country’s 150th birthday, and how the city will have a chance to show off to millions of visitors, but he also talked about other drivers of our economy. “It’s well known Ottawa is

on a roll, from Lansdowne to the Arts Court, to the recently opened Innovation Centre,” Watson said, adding that 2016 was a year of “rolling up our sleeves and getting things done.” Ottawa is vying to be declared a centre for excellence — a designation given by the province that will allow autonomous cars to be tested on certain roads. Watson congratulated Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson on her work to push for a centre in her ward. Last week, Kanata hosted


an autonomous car symposium. Watson said he plans to lead a delegation to Queen’s Park in the next few weeks. The delegation would include select business leaders and organizations such as Invest Ottawa. LRT

No accounting of what’s happening in Ottawa would be complete without mention of the “world class transit system” the city is in the midst of constructing. Watson mentioned ongoing construction

on the Confederation line, which is set to open in 2018. Watson said the city is in the planning stages of the second phase of LRT and went beyond the original scope by looking at expanding the next phase to Orléans and Kanata. “We have to get transit right,” he said. He also said the city was working to increase access to public transportation with the EquiPass — a discounted monthly pass available for people whose income is under the low-income cut off and don’t qualify for assistance

with a transit pass through Gatineau. provincial programs like OnThe city is moving forward tario Works. on a mixed-use community at the former Rockcliffe airbase.

Audrey was too busy to go through Eaton’s Catalogue with me, I had put my dolls to bed, and the only light was coming from the one coal-oil lamp in the middle of the kitchen table. It was the perfect time for me to do what I always turned to when I was left to amuse myself after supper and before bedtime.

time. And then underneath the shelves, and the full length of the cupboard, there was a piece of white porcelain, what I thought was just about the handiest invention ever thought of next to the flour sifter! Here Mother could make sandwiches, cut meat, in fact, just do about any chore in the kitchen where she needed a flat surface. And lo and behold, right under this piece of porcelain, was a wood cutting board that could be pulled out whenever needed. Here Mother pounded down bread and rolled out pastry, and each knife mark, I thought, showed how very important was this addition to the white cupboard. A long drawer was under this board, and here there was lots of space for our mismatched silver wear. And as I sat there in the middle of the kitchen floor, I could picture the forks with a four leaf clover etched in each handle. And I thought how rich we were indeed to have such fine forks to eat from! two more doors

Under all of this were two more doors. Apart from the time my young cousin Terry once crawled in and hid for hours while we frantically scoured the farm looking for him, this space was kept for roast pans, cookie sheets and muffin tins. That night, I saved the best of the cupboard for the last. Above the porcelain was a door made completely of narrow slats of wood. Mother could pull this door up and down, and when it was up, it completely vanished into goodness knows where. I could never figure out where it went to, and I really didn’t want to know. I wanted it to remain a mystery, so that on the evening when I chose the cupboard to visit, there would always be something about it yet to learn. Emerson once asked Mother what in heavens name I found interesting about simply sitting and looking at the pieces of furniture that filled our kitchen, and he would tease me and say I had a screw loose whatever that meant. And Mother would tell him to leave me alone, that one day I might keep those memories deep in my mind, and I might even write about them. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Cyril Leeder sent packing by Senators Staff

Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk has fired Ottawa Senators president Cyril Leeder, one of the original group that garnered an NHL franchise for Ottawa. Melnyk announced the appointment of Tom Anselmi as the Ottawa Senators president and chief executive officer on Jan. 25. Anselmi succeeds Leeder who was released as president of the hockey club and not offered another job with the organization. Anselmi was introduced the same day at a press conference at the Canadian Tire Centre. Anselmi most recently worked as a senior manager at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which owns the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors and Toronto FC of Major League Soccer. His most senior positions with MLSE were president and chief operating officer. He resigned from MLSE in 2013. He originally joined MLSE in 1996 and was responsible for the overall development of the Air Canada Centre. Melnyk thanked Leeder for his efforts over 25 years during the press conference that intro-

duced Anselmi. Melnyk said Anselmi is the right person to oversee the team’s move to LeBreton Flats. He said the decision to seek a new president was sparked when the Senators proposal for LeBreton Flats was selected as the preferred option for the redevelopment of the site. reaction

The decision to get rid of Leeder has drawn mostly negative reaction on social media. One of the original founders of the franchise, Bruce Firestone, tweeted that Leeder saved the franchise “at least three times.” Some have called the move callous, in part because Leeder put a lot of effort into helping find a liver donor for Melnyk in 2015. Without the donation of a liver, Melnyk’s life was at risk. He received a liver transplant in May 2015. Leeder spoke publically on Jan. 26, saying there were no hard feelings. Leeder said he met with the Sens owner on Jan. 24. “It was a professional and cordial meeting; it was a business meeting,” Leeder said. Leeder said growing up he dreamed about becoming a pro-

fessional athlete, and that working with Firestone to build the Sens organization in Ottawa was pretty close. Leeder currently co-chairs Ottawa’s bid for the Canada Summer Games in 2021, so he will focus on that, along with his work with the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, while planning his next move. “Hopefully I will find something in Ottawa – the city that I love – but I recognize that I have a unique skill set that may require me to move,” he said. As for his leaving the club, Leeder said there’s no point in looking for a reason. “Sometimes in business you make a change and you don’t have to have a reason,” he said. When it comes to the LeBreton Flats development, Leeder said he thinks he could have delivered on it. As for the team, Leeder said when he first started out decades ago, he underestimated how important the team would be to the city. “It’s something I am proud to have been a part of,” he said, adding the Senators Foundation - team-associated charity – has raised $110 million for community groups and projects.

Smiling Hank hangs up his cleats Henry Burris retires as RedBlack, Grey Cup champ


by michelle nash baker

After 63,000 yards thrown and a career that spanned 267 games, Smiling Hank is hanging up his cleats. Overlooking the field at TD Place where he led his team to a Grey Cup-winning season just months ago, Ottawa RedBlacks quarterback Henry Burris announced his retirement on Jan. 24. “Being here in Ottawa to finish up my career, it’s been one of the most amazing experiences any one could have ever asked for,” Burris said. Joined by his wife Nicole and his sons Armand and Barron, Burris said he is looking forward to spending time with his family. “At the end of the day there is only one team I am ready to spend any time with right now and it’s these six eyes that are Michelle Nash Baker/Metroland right here with me,” Burris said.

Each week, a lawyer from the Kanata based Allan Snelling law firm will answer a reader’s question.

Burris holds the all-time CFL record for most pass completions in one season, connecting on 481 passes with Ottawa in 2015, and is third alltime in career completions with 4,638. In 2015, he also set the CFL record for most completions in a game with 45 on a night where he threw for a career-high 504 yards. Henry sits third in career passing touchdowns, with 374, and his 70.94 completion percentage that year was the seventh-best in CFL history.

Three weeks ago I was at a retail store and tripped over a box near the entrance. I fell and broke my wrist. Today an Insurance adjuster called me. He said I was responsible to look where I was walking but he offered me $5000.00 to help me out as I have been off work. I am on sick leave and have not lost any income. Is there any reason not to just take the money? Plenty of Reason. Leaving aside what happened,

“I might be taking off the pads but the work shall still continue.” Henry Burris

Burris said he would miss the camaraderie and the sanctuary of the locker-room. Dealing with his emotions during his announcement, the quarterback said watching his team play without him will be hard. But looking ahead, he said the day was all about a celebration, and he joked about the future. “Bad Hank was the guy that was on the field and talked trash. Good Hank was the guy in the community and CFL football … and right now I’m looking forward to be father and Hockey Hank,” he said. Overall, Burris won three Grey Cups during his career — two as a starter — and he said he’s proud of what he accomplished. Winning the cup this year provided the opportunity to celebrate with his family, complete with eating Apple Jacks out of the cup. Posted on Twitter, Burris and his two sons giggled as they ate the cereal out of the trophy’s bowl in December. And for all the germaphobes out there, Nicole said she lined the cup in plastic wrap before the boys ate out of the iconic cup. Nicole and the boys said they are looking forward to having Burris home, and doing things as a family. “A lot of the time we had to decide whether we would do something or wait for Henry to come, too,” Nicole said. Now, she said, it will be all about family experiences.

and what you might be entitled to recover as a result of your injuries, it is always a good idea to consult with a lawyer before taking a settlement proposed by an insurance company. Insurance adjusters work for Insurance companies and they do not approach a settlement based on what you are entitled to. They offer money based on the risk of what you might receive by way of an award. Generally, they will try and settle a claim or potential claim for as little as they reasonably can in order to close off a risk.

A lawyer will work for you. Many lawyers offer a free consultation. I find I ask a lot of questions and do a lot of listening during a consultation. I try to

understand that people almost always benefit from at least consulting with a lawyer before trying to settle with an insurance company. There is a significant imbalance between a lone individual and a huge insurance company. A lawyer has the knowledge to help level the playing field. In my experience insurers will see a greater risk when dealing with an injured person who is represented by a lawyer. Greater risk to insurers leads to better settlements.
