EMC News – Members of the Canadian Fitness and Squash Club are being left out in the cold after the gym closed its doors on Feb. 3. The fitness club sent an email to its members on Feb. 2, informing them that the club would be shutting down at 6 p.m. the following day. People who paid for their memberships in advance would not be reimbursed any of the money. “A few of you have asked if the club will be providing refunds,” wrote the owners, Richard and Tim, in an email to the membership base. Neither included a last name. “If we were able to do so, we certainly would. Unfortunately, this is not the case and we cannot.” Repeated attempts to get in touch with the owners have gone unanswered. John Hopkins, who has been a member since the club first opened in 1992, said the closure came as a shock to everybody. “They’re upset and pissed off that they lost their money. There’s not much they can do,” said Hopkins, who attended the gym with his wife. “To find out it was closing all of a sudden was a real shock.” CLUB CLOSES, see 7

Rachel Ciolfi, a Grade 11 student at Holy Trinity Catholic High School, gets into the groove during a practice run for a performance by the school’s rhythm and blues band for Motown artist Martha Reeves on Feb. 16.

Motown legend Martha Reeves visit ‘amazing’ for students Holy Trinity, Victoria High School blues bands put on show in Stittsville Jessica Cunha and John Curry

EMC News – Motown legend Martha Reeves gave students a thrill as she worked with them to build their musical techniques.

The renowned singer, who led popular Motown group Martha and the Vandellas with hits such as “Heat Wave,” was in Stittsville on Thursday, Feb. 16, to take in a performance by the rhythm and blues bands from Holy Trinity Catholic High School and Victoria High School. The Victoria, B.C., students are in town on an exchange trip with those from the Kanata high school. “Because of the (Victoria) band’s connections with Martha Reeves, she’s come to our school and we’ve been able to practise with her and learn her techniques,” said Grade 11 Holy Trinity vocalist Rachel Ciolfi. “It’s been amazing. I’ve gotten a lot of chances to do things that I would never normally be able to

do.” Reeves sat in the front row during the show, beaming up at the students and tapping to the beat on her tambourine. She said she gets a “thrill” seeing the students enjoy the Motown genre. “Eric Emde (the Victoria music director) has taught his youngsters how to really rock,” said Reeves. “Even Holy Trinity played some ’40s music. “They’ve embraced the old music and made it their own. And it’s not like they had to do it against their will or against their desires. They all seemed very pleased to be a part of the music scene that they’ve been taught.” REEVES, see 2

escorted to the stage where she answered a number of questions from audience members. She told how she started singing when she was three years old in her grandfather’s church and how she worked with a number of great musicians over the years. Encouraged by the audience, Reeves sang an a cappella version of her famous 1967 hit song “Jimmy Mack,” encouraging the audience to sing along with her and accompanying herself with her tambourine.

Reeves said she enjoys interacting with the students, answering their questions and imparting some advice about the music industry. “I get a joy in teaching because I learn a lot,” said Reeves. “I pray that (other students) get the good teachers that I see here; teachers that care about the students and insist that they do it right.” The day before, Reeves attended a show at the National Arts Centre by both high school bands, where Grade 12 Victoria High School student Soleil Demers sang “Dancing in the Street,” one of Reeves’ hit songs. “It was a thrill because she did a bang-up job, and the band played it well too,” said Reeves of the performance. “I was really honoured and de-

Martha Reeves took in a performance by the Holy Trinity and Victoria High School rhythm and blues bands on Feb. 16.




Once the question-andanswer period was finished, Reeves remained on stage to perform with the Victoria High School band, playing her tambourine and joining in with some of the vocal melodies from the centre rear of the stage. The songs included the 1967 Aretha Franklin hit “Chain of Fools” and Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish,” concluding with the iconic 1967 rhythm and blues song “Higher and Higher,” which brought forth rhythmic clapping from the audience.


As the Holy Trinity band played such classics as “Doing It Right,” “Vehicle,” and “Keep Playing That Rock ‘n Roll Music,” Reeves kept time to the music on her tambourine. She applauded heartily after every song and even let out a shout or two after an inspiring solo. It was after the Victoria High School band opened with a handful of songs, including the 1974 hit “I’ve Got The Music in Me,” that Reeves was

Stallions hope new head coach will corral a playoff berth Former NHLer Corey Foster takes the reins of CCHL team Jessica Cunha

EMC News – The Kanata Stallions are hoping a new head coach can help them corral a playoff spot this year in the Central Canada Hockey League. General manager Lou Nistico hired Corey Foster to take the reins from Randy Pierce on Feb. 11, in the hopes of turning things around after a disappointing season of losses. “I think it’ll give them new life,” Nistico said of the Stallions players. “We have nine games left and hopefully this gets us to a playoff spot.” Nistico said he thought Pierce, a former NHL rightwinger, did a good job as the bench boss, but the team just “wasn’t responding.” “It’s no fun firing your coach,” he said. “This time of year, it’s just easier to replace the coach than to replace 20 hockey players. “It’s not just the coach’s fault; the players have to take responsibility. The coach can only do so much.” The Stallions – this year’s Fred Page Cup hosts – are

four points away from a playoff berth. The team has won 20 games, lost 27, and lost another six in overtime or shootouts. The Stallions are up against the Smiths Falls Bears, who are 24-27-2, for the last playoff spot. “I still think we have a good shot at the playoffs,” said Nistico, adding he expects the players will respond well to Foster. “(The players) realize that they’re the reason that the head coach got fired. I think they’ll respond better and start playing like they’re capable of playing.” Foster was originally hired as an assistant coach last August. However, he had to leave his position in November for personal reasons. Now, the former NHLer is hoping he can lead the team in the right direction. “I hope to get into the playoffs,” Foster said. “We’ve had a couple of real good practices. Hopefully, moving forward, we can all get on the same page and get into the playoffs.” Foster, an Arnprior resi-

His best season was in 1989 when he was a member of Canada’s national junior team and won the Me-

EMC News – Parents with children in crisis will now have a road map to help them navigate the city’s mental health services thanks to a Suicide Safer Ottawa summit held at Ben Franklin Place in Nepean on Feb. 8. The summit brought together people from more than 40 service organizations to talk about supports that are already in place and what can be done to prevent future youth suicide. The talk, which took place on Bell Let’s Talk Day, which raised money for mental health issues, also resulted in a tool kit called Know What To Do, which provided tips and resources for parents whose children are in crisis. Dr. Ian Manion, the executive director of the Provincial Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health at CHEO, said prolonged negative moods and changes of behaviour are warning signs.

Myron Khatheer, a 21-yearold who started work with the Youth Services Bureau (YSB) after running away from home, said his work has

helped him to see the signs. “Suicide awareness is a huge issue,” he said. “It happens a lot and there are always signals to spot.” Khatheer was part of a youth panel that talked to the crowd about letting young people drive the response system and tell service providers what they would like to see as youth mental health resources. Khatheer said his pride in working with others at the YSB helped him to overcome some of his own issues.

“They gave me so many skills; things I didn’t even know I was capable of,” he said. “They let me be myself in a supportive environment.” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said the community support received since his son Jamie took his own life has helped his family members to get out of bed each morning. Hubley said finding help for Jamie – who suffered from depression – was a big thing for the family. “Now we have committed to the cause so that his life wouldn’t have ended in vain,” Hubley said, adding that he wants to prevent another family from the pain of losing a child to suicide. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod and Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi came together to organize the summit. Naqvi said he would like to see Ottawa build on the system that already exists, with support from the province. “This issue isn’t going away,” he said. “We need to move on it.”

Commissionaires cancel fifth annual Run for Military Families Theresa Fritz

EMC News – A run that generated support for military families and grew beyond expectations is no more. On Feb. 6, in an open letter on the Commissionaires Ottawa website, organization CEO Paul Guindon announced the fifth annual Run for Military Families would not be taking place. The event had been scheduled to take place May 3 to 4. The event, which Commissionaires Ottawa sponsored, was designed to raise awareness and funds in support of the Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre (PMFRC), a non-profit agency located at CFB Petawawa. The event saw participation from the base members, including the base commander himself, as well as members of communities the run passed through.

Guindon praised the event and expressed gratitude to all those who have volunteered, participated or supported the run. “There are several reasons that individually did not challenge our commitment to organize and sponsor this year’s event, but factored together they have convinced me that is it not too late to turn a new page and focus on other ways to give back to the military community in 2012 and beyond,” Guindon wrote. “Please be assured that funds raised so far will be presented to the military family resource centres in Petawawa and the National Capital Region, and we look forward to future collaborations to raise awareness about the important work they do in support of military families.” The run grew steadily from its first outing in 2008. It traditionally began with a kick-

off at the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill and the running convoy made brief stops along the way to in various communities to acknowledge the support of donors, school veterans, Legions and military families. Fundraisers with donation boxes were located at all stops along the way. Stops over the years have included locations in Kanata and West Carleton, such as St. Isidore Catholic Elementary School. The run continued up the Ottawa Valley, crossing the finish line at the Red Friday Rally hosted by Red Friday Ladies Lisa Miller and Karen Boire in Pembroke. Based on the huge turnout for the Arnprior event, Miller and Boire were special guests at last year’s rally in Arnprior. “It has been a good run, literally, and I am grateful for the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers, staff, organiz-

ers, guest speakers and runners – too numerous to be mentioned but individually appreciated,” Guindon wrote in his open letter. In a separate statement to this newspaper, he elaborated further. “The Run for Military Families was a very special event that took on a life of its own and grew beyond anyone’s wildest predictions,” said Guindon. “The organization of this event was carried on the backs of a not-forprofit company and hundreds of volunteers. For four years, we found resourceful ways to give 100 per cent of donations and the majority of corporate sponsorship contributions to the Military Family Resource Centres, plus a $10,000 donation from Commissionaires Ottawa. “Although the concept and our approach was unique and well-received, the organization of an event that linked seven different municipalities and had grown so rapidly risked becoming a year-round commitment – and that’s time and resources spent above and beyond everyone’s day jobs.” ** He emphasized his organization would continue to cc awarefundraise and increase ness but it was time a new di-

rection was taken. “Although our decision to cancel this event was very difficult, Commissionaires Ottawa and many of our volunteers are already looking at

different ways to spread out our fundraising and awareness efforts throughout the year rather than try to squeeze it all into two days,” Guindon said. R0011271748

St. Gabriel to host e-waste drop off Funds raised to help build play structure Jessica Cunha

EMC News – St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School will host an electronic waste drop-off next month to help raise funds to build a play structure. The new school in Kanata North implemented full-day kindergarten this year and wants to offer its students a place to play. “We want to develop a plan for our yard that would

include play structures and other structures that would keep the kids busy and active,” said Jane Hill, principal of St. Gabriel. Currently, the school has 140 kindergarten students. Once a play structure is built, the school will focus

Fitness and squash club closes after 20 years in the community CLUB CLOSES, from 1

on the rest of its yard plan. “We’re providing a service for our community,” said Hill. “Being new we want to start building that relationship with the community.” The e-waste drop off will take place on March 31, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Gabriel, located at 400 Keyrock Dr., Kanata. Hill warned that items can’t be dropped off ahead of time because the school isn’t licensed to store e-waste. Items such as computers, answering machines, cell phones, telephones, CD players and more can be dropped off during the event. For a complete list of acceptable e-waste, visit gab.

Hopkins said he and his wife were lucky – as longtime members they paid by the month. He said he heard of one woman who signed up for a yearly membership on Jan. 31, just three days before the fitness and squash club shut down. “She went on vacation, came back, and it was closed,” said Hopkins. “So she’s out a whole year’s membership.” Linda Leinan, who’s been a member of the club since 1996, paid for a yearly membership of just over $800 last

September for herself and her husband. “Those who paid by the year have been told that they’re not able to reimburse (us),” said Leinan. “Basically they said, ‘We would if we could, but sorry.’ “I do feel very badly for the owners because they probably have done badly financially, but I feel sorry for us too.” Richard and Tim bought the fitness and squash club in 2009 from the previous owners to keep it from closing down, said Hopkins. “These people, Richard and Tim, took it over because they actually went to the gym,”

said Hopkins. “At one point they were putting their own money into the building. They lasted until a week ago and that was it.” The owners refurbished the space last summer with new paint, refinished the squash courts and put in a hallway to connect the weight room, said Hopkins. During that time the club was closed for a twoweek period and a number of people went elsewhere. “I think that’s what hurt them,” said Hopkins. “They tried to get members back … but I don’t think it worked. “It’s too bad, it was a nice club.”

When fences are good for the neighbours A

dip in the backyard pool is a summer ritual for thousands of city residents. Jumping in the water for a little tomfoolery or maybe to swim a few lengths is a mental distraction. It’s natural that while having fun, we don’t spend time mulling over the risks associated with the activity. But back on dry land it’s worth considering the dry

facts. The city issues as many as 900 permits for new pool enclosures each year. The permit system and associated bylaws are there to prevent tragedies. Residents with outdoor pools must install fences that keep neighbouring children out of the water. The city is now considering an upgrade to that requirement. New rules being considered would require fences to

be designed so they are more difficult to climb. Gates leading to the pool will have to be kept locked. The greatest change being discussed would see all new pool enclosures separate the pool from the house. Today a young child living next door to a pool has physical barriers keeping them from wandering into danger. By adding a requirement for fencing between pool owners’ homes

and their own pools will be seen by some as intrusive, but the payoff will come in lives no longer lost to drownings. Too often young children end up in pools, dead or close to it. A fence seems a small price to pay. Sometimes it’s a child who lives in the home who ends up out of sight for mere moments, only to be found floating in the backyard pool. In Ottawa we’ve seen children drowned

while visiting the home of family or family friends. Seeing a distraught father taking an axe to a pool after losing a young son can quickly convince a bystander that tighter rules can save lives. The intrusive aspect of foursided pool enclosures should be measured against other safety legislation we have come to accept. Many years ago, when the province required people in cars to wear seat belts, some

may have grumbled about their freedom, but we adapted. Motoring deaths have dropped because we follow the law. The new “four-sided� requirement will not force existing pool owners to upgrade, but all of them should consider doing so. Existing pools may be grandfathered, but if you want to be a grandparent one day, a complete enclosure could be the answer.


Laissez-faire parenting BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse


f we could all be a little more like parents in France, our infants would sleep through the night, our children would eat their vegetables, and we’d all be having great post-natal sex with our spouses. These are just some of the conclusions found in a new book, Bringing up Bebe: One American mother discovers the wisdom of French parenting. Author Pamela Druckerman is an American journalist living in Paris with her husband and three young children. After spending years observing French parenting culture through an expatriate lens, she has documented some of their laissez-faire parenting customs from which, she says, we can all benefit. Druckerman contrasts the child-centric American style of parenting with the more relaxed philosophy of the French, who seem to fit children into their lives, rather than the other way around. She says a lot of it starts in-utero. While North Americans preach abstinence of alcohol, caffeine, and warn against “the most minute risks, like getting a manicure,� Druckerman says the French are much less obsessive over whether a little bit of unpasteurized cheese will hurt the baby. “The attitude isn’t that every bite of food you take is going to determine whether your child is accepted to Harvard Law School,� Druckerman told Macleans magazine. There are some great takeaways from the book. I am a huge advocate of what Druckerman describes as “the Pause,� a sleep-training method used by French parents on babies as young as a few weeks old. Rather than jumping at baby’s every cry in the night, French parents wait a minute or two to see if the baby will connect its two-hour sleep cycles together

on its own. Druckerman says many French babies sleep through the night by two or threemonths-old. (In hindsight, sheer exhaustion – the inability to respond to baby immediately in the wee hours of the morning – helped me to employ this method inadvertently on my own two children, who slept through the night at three and four-months-old, to the envy of my neighbours and friends). Druckerman also notes children in France are expected to eat the same food as adults, and they are not allowed to snack between meals. Druckerman points out that, as a result, French kids are more likely than their American counterparts to eat their vegetables at meal times because they’re actually hungry. Admittedly, I already practice some of the apparent French methods Druckerman describes. I could be accused, however, of being overly interventionist (and typically North American) when it comes to my children’s intellectual stimulation. While French parents are more likely to sit on the periphery of a playground, for example, and socialize with other adults as their children play on slides and climbers, Druckerman says moms like me tend to be “wheeing� and “ awing� at every move my child makes. I’ve become a bit more relaxed as my children get older, but it’s worth noting that, as a result of their less interventionist behaviour, French parents are able to expect less interruptive behaviour from their children. And finally, there’s the sex. It may be a bit controversial here, but French women feel no obligation to breastfeed beyond a few months, unless they enjoy it, says Druckerman. Many partake in state-sponsored post-natal classes, which help women tighten up pelvic muscles after childbirth. It’s unusual for women to stay home fulltime with children. Druckerman says three months seems to be the “magic number,� by which point most women are expected to get their pre-natal identities back, including returning to work and fitting into their skinny jeans. That, alone, is enough to make me want to shout, “vive le France.�

St. Paul’s hosts a lunch ‘n’ learn series for Lent St. Paul’s Anglican Church

EMC News – Kanata is a community rich in human resources. Among them is a diversity of churches, faiths and beliefs. All can come together in faith on their own Lenten journey at a series of Lenten Lunch ‘n Learn services to be held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, 20 Young Rd., just north of Hazeldean Road. Each address will be given by a different speaker, and is structured to address the main building-blocks of Lent. If your faith is strong – please come and share in the celebration. If your faith is only simmering – please come and be strengthened in body and soul. If your Christian education is scarce – please come and build it with others. If your faith is waning – please come and have it bolstered.

If you merely have questions – come, and receive answers to affirm your own personal journey through Lent. These Lenten lectures have proven very popular with Kanata residents. Lectures are scheduled for the four Wednesdays prior to Easter, and begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. After, there is Christian fellowship along with homemade soup and bread. There is no charge, but a free-will offering is gladly accepted. Following is a schedule of dates, speakers and topics: • Feb. 29: Self-Examination with Father Pierre Champoux, of Holy Redeemer Church. • March 7: Penitence with Pastor Bob Davies, of Kanata Baptist Church. • March 14: Prayer with Mark Stalter, of St. Paul’s. • March 21: Fasting with Pastor Mike Miedema. • March 29: Almsgiving with Father Bill Prentice, of St. Paul’s.

Civitan Club comes to Bells Corners Civitan Club

EMC News – Bells Corners will soon be the home of the first Civitan Club in Ottawa in nearly 15 years. The newly formed organization will host its first information meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 29, at 7 p.m. at the Bells Corners United Church, 3955 Richmond Rd. Civitan International is an association of community service clubs founded in 1917. The organization aims to build good citizenship by providing a volunteer organization of clubs dedicated to serving individual and community needs with an emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities. The organization includes 40,000 members (referred to as Civitans) in almost 1,000 clubs around the world. Our Canadian District East Civitan Clubs are located in Aylmer, Carleton Place, Almonte, Pakenham, Cobden, Pembroke, Petawawa, Lanark, Perth, Smiths Falls, Kingston, Napanee, Brockville, Chateauguay and Montreal. Anyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to learn more about the club. While individual clubs are free to pursue their own projects, on an international level Civitan is focused on service

to the developmentally disabled. This emphasis was adopted in 1956, with Civitans becoming some of the first to provide special training for teachers of developmentally disabled children. Civitan continues to focus on assisting those with developmental disabilities. In 1990, the Civitan International Research Center was established on the campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a $20 million grant from the Civitan International Foundation. The Civitan International Research Center was the first institution of its kind in the United States to be focused solely on the research of developmental disabilities. Medical professionals from all over the world also come to the center for training on developmental disabilities. Information meetings about the Civitan Club in Bells Corners will be held on March 7, 14, 21 and 28, at 7 p.m. at the Bells Corners United Church, 3955 Richmond Rd. For more information about Civitan membership, please call Bonnie Jessup at 613-820-1251 or Bryan Wiltsie 613-271-8903 ext. 245. Visit our Facebook page for updates or www.

Roadshow is back in Ottawa...4 Days Left For complete information see ad below

TERRY INKLER Canadian Collectors Roadshow Staff Writer After very successful events throughout Canada, the Roadshow has come back to Ottawa. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.

Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery

During a show nearToronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt.“I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles,“so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for jewellery she was never going to wear.

Expert Elijah Gold explains,“We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added,“The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!”

50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains,“I never would have thought that my old tin afford to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”.

At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She finally decided to come into the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare. Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains“We had uncovered an 1871 QueenVictoria

EMC Lifestyle – “Any day now,” Audrey said, peeking into the mailbox at the end of our long winding lane. For days, walking home from the Northcote School with anticipation, Audrey checked the mailbox. It was yet to appear. “What’s taking it so long?” I wanted to know. “Don’t be so impatient. It will be here in its own good time.” What we were waiting for was the new issue of Eaton’s catalogue. As regular as clockwork as the seasons changed, we could count on it arriving by mail. The last copy was thickened from constant page turning and it would await its fate as soon as the newest edition came into the house. Finally it was there, crammed into the tin mailbox. Audrey and I ran all the way home through hardened snow, through the bush, never stopping until we reached the kitchen door. My sister wouldn’t let me carry it, not even for a few feet in case I dropped it and got it wet. Mother was as excited as we were and even though she was preparing supper, she stopped long enough to take a look at the cover and ordered us to wash our hands before we got down to the real job of looking it over. “Just put it over there on the top of the ice box until you

Catalogue put to good use

Have you read your newspaper today?

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories have readied up the kitchen,” she said. Supper was a hurried meal that night. After all, great things loomed ahead! Audrey and I had the kitchen readied up in jig time with the oil cloth-covered table wiped and then dried with a clean flour bag tea towel to make sure it was perfectly dry. After all, it would never do to get a spot on the catalogue when it was this new! REAL PAGE-TURNER

The coal oil lamp was lit and moved to the centre of the table and Audrey and I took our places on the long bench against the back wall. Audrey always appointed herself the page-turner. She accused me of crimping the corners and goodness knows the catalogue had to serve us until the next one came out months later. My sister and I had this game we played with the Eaton’s catalogue. We could each pick one thing off each

page and we took turns picking first, allowing ourselves only 10 pages a night. If Audrey hadn’t put a limit on our pastime, we would have gone through the entire catalogue in less than a week. And so we started at the women’s fashions and even though there wasn’t a hope in Hades of our ever having one item we picked, we scanned each page as if our choice was a matter of life and death. It was amazing how we could spend the best part of an entire evening just going through those 10 pages and making our choices. Then Audrey would take the 12-inch ruler and tuck it into the page we had left off, close the catalogue and either pass it over to Mother or gently put it up on top of the ice box until the next night. The brothers were never too interested in the new catalogue. Neither was Father. He said anything he needed he could get either at Briscoe’s General Store or at Thacker’s garage.

Baguettes start in bread machine PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff


1 cup water 1 tbsp. sugar 1 tsp. salt 3/4 tsp. cinnamon 2 3/4 cups flour 1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast 3/4 cup raisins 1 egg yolk 2 tbsp. water Place the water, sugar, salt, cinnamon, flour and yeast in

the bread machine in the order given. It’s important that the cinnamon doesn’t touch the yeast, because it can prevent the yeast from working properly. Start the bread machine on the dough cycle. Add the raisins when the machine beeps for the addition of ingredients, or during the second kneading if your machine has no indicator. When the dough cycle has finished, turn it out on a lightly floured surface. Pat the dough down, and cut it into two pieces. Set one portion aside. Take the other portion and

roll it back and forth on a lightly-floured surface, shaping it into a loaf about 12 inches long and about two inches high. Try to keep it the same thickness throughout. Set this loaf on a greased baking sheet, leaving room beside it for the next one. With a sharp knife, make three or four diagonal cuts in the top of the loaf about 1/4inch deep. Repeat the shaping and cutting with the second portion of dough, then set it on the baking sheet too. Cover the loaves with a damp tea towel, and let them rise for about 30 minutes, or until they have doubled in height. Once the dough has risen, remove the cloth. Stir the egg yolk and water in a small cup, mixing them well, then brush each loaf with this egg glaze. Bake at 375 F for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm, or cool on a rack before freezing. Makes two loaves.

EMC Lifestyle – If you’ve ever bought a cookbook for bread machines, you’ll know that there are lots of recipes that don’t use the machine for the entire bread-making process. While it starts in the machine, once the dough is ready, it’s taken out of the machine, shaped, then baked in the oven. These are the recipes that are fun to make. If you’ve never worked with dough before, the baguette is a great way to start. This simple shaped loaf is really just a long, thin version of french bread. All you have to do once you take the dough out of the bread machine is roll it, let it rise, then bake it. This recipe for cinnamon raisin baguettes is easy to make. The finished loaves have the chewy texture of a french loaf with the wonderful flavour of cinnamon and raisins.

Local Investors Make Big Money Investing in Real Estate Without Touching a Screwdriver



Affiliates Realty Ltd., Brokerage Independently Owned and Operated

NICK KARADZA Real Estate Author and broker

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 362 Crownridge Drive:



Perfect starter home. Bright kitchen with eating area, adjoining living/dining room with new cherry hardwood flooring. 2 generous sized bdrms each featuring 3pc ensuite baths. In unit laundry. All appliances included.

10 Sawchuk Terrace:



Adult style end unit bungalow offers 2100 sq ft. 2 +1 bedroom, 3 full bathrooms. Hardwood flooring throughout the main level, finished basement with cozy family room with gas fireplace & fitness room.

618 Southside Way:


Looking for the perfect summer retreat? 3 Season cedar log cottage, 3bdrms with spacious living area. 100ft of waterfront, situated on Norway Lake near the Village of Calabogie.

25 Mattawa Crescent:





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.

REAL ESTATE How to choose a builder (MS) -- Whether the kids have all grown up and moved out or if the kids are on the way and it’s time to expand a living area, building a new home is an exciting, yet often agonizing, experience. The reasons for building a new home are many, but regardless of the reason, the process of choosing a builder should remain the same. Andrew Nadalin, president of Pace 2000 Inc. and a fourth generation builder and craftsmen, offers the following advice to prospective homeowners with their eyes set on building a dream home to call their own. * Look for a builder with a solid reputation. A builder’s reputation speaks volumes, but it doesn’t have to speak for istself. That’s because a builder who has spent years providing personal service, innovative design and quality workmanship will no doubt have a host of happy former customers ready and willing to offer their input. If during the interview process a builder appears reticent to share his work or experiences with previous customers, this should be a red flag. Reputable builders will be proud of their work and more than willing to show it off.

they might be. * Look for a builder who does more than build. A good builder should do more than just build. A builder should provide a network of qualified professionals to make the process go more smoothly. This network should include real estate and building consultants, interior designers, architects and engineers. Such connections can provide peace of mind and will also illustrate that a builder is both respected in the community and is intent on ensuring your home becomes the dream home you envision it to be. * Don’t build on the cheap. Buyers who plan to build their

own home are in the unique position to ensure their home is as safe and high-quality as possible. This isn’t always the case when buying a resale, so make the most of your opportunity and use only top-ofthe-line construction materials and features and choose a builder with experience in working with such materials and features. Building on the cheap could prove disastrous in the not too distant future, so don’t sacrifice on quality when building a new home. More information on selecting the right builder is available online at

Fence etiquette prevents disputes certain steps to take that will prevent any legal disputes down the road. Even the most easy-going neighbor could grow aggravated if the fence is put up carelessly or ends up partially on his property. The best way to prevent this is to apply for a new, professional property survey and have property lines indicated with paint or wood markers. Each town or city has different regulations with regard to fencing, so it is important to learn the ropes or hire a contractor who is familiar with the rules. It might be illegal to install fences directly on the property line. The law might require the fence be installed a few inches inward. There also may be rules about how high fences can be in the front of the home, sides and back. Corner lot properties may have added regulations depending on whether the fence could prove a visual obstruction to drivers. If you live in a planned community, or one with a homeowners’ association, it is your job to find out the guidelines for any home improve-

ments. The HOA may dictate the style, size and maintenance of the fence or may not allow a fence at all. Once all the details are checked, you may have to apply for a fence permit. This way the construction of the fence and finished product will meet safety standards, and the area in which you live can provide consistent quality control. If the fence is installed by code, there is little chance it will have to be torn down or changed in the near future. Also, doing it by the book means that a neighbor can be unhappy about a fence but not have legal recourse to ask you to remove it. As an added form of courtesy, it is proper fence etiquette to put the “good” side of the fence facing the neighbors’ yards. That means the side of the fence that doesn’t show the support panels and posts. Remember, it is your fence so you are also responsible for all maintenance of the fence -- on all sides. Just because your neighbor also will be benefitting from your fence,

doesn’t mean he will have to

care for it.

affect their views or their adjoining property. Before drawing up fence plans with a contractor, talk to the neighbors on either side of your home and gauge their receptiveness to a fence. At this point, you may want to consider offering to make the fencing project a joint deal to save money should the neighbors decide to install a fence as well. Contractors will often discount if they have several customers doing an installation at the same time. Property owners can save by splitting the costs of the shared walls of the fence where their property lines meet. Explain your case for the fence. Most neighbors are receptive to the idea if they know the reasoning -- especially if the desire for a fence is not to keep them at bay. It’s hard to protest a fence that is a safety precaution for children. If your neighbor already has a fence, you must ask whether you can connect your fence panels into the support post on your shared side. Once you notify your neighbors as a courtesy, there are


(MS) - People fortunate enough to own their own plots of land often choose to fence in their pieces of paradise. Fences serve many purposes: to designate property boundaries, keep pets or children contained in a safe environment, corral livestock, offer privacy or add aesthetic appeal. Although installing a fence may seem like the right idea for you, going about it the wrong way may lead to problems among neighbors, particularly if you live where the houses are relatively close to one another. Some homeowners find fences become the final point of contention among disagreeable neighbors or create tension with a neighbor with whom you previously had a good relationship. Being courteous with fence plans is the way to avoid any animosity along the way. There are certain things you must do and should do if you plan to erect a fence. Most people find neighbors appreciate being informed of any decisions you are thinking of making to the property that can

West end needs new hotel: director John Curry

EMC News – There is a need for another hotel in the west end of Ottawa, said Alana Haining, director of sales and marketing for the Holiday Inn & Suites hotel in Kanata. Speaking to members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville on Tuesday, Feb. 14, she said that there are now many nights when all of the hotels in the west end of the city are sold out. As for the Holiday Inn & Suites, it serves corporate clients visiting local business parks during the week and then caters to visitors to Scotiabank Place, the Bell Sensplex and other similar venues on the weekend. Big-name entertainment shows at Scotiabank Place also means more business for the Holiday Inn & Suites, she said. When there is a National Hockey League game or an event at Scotiabank Place, the Holiday Inn & Suites is full. She said another factor in the hotel’s current success is the new Convention Centre in downtown Ottawa, which has generated more visitors to the city, with some of the business being pushed out to the suburbs like Kanata. While admitting that there

is an absolute demand for another hotel in the city’s west end, she said that she didn’t know of any definite plans for such a new hotel being built. The only exception, is that she had been told there will be a new hotel built at Scotiabank Place within the next four years, she said. But there has been no announcement about such a plan. The Holiday Inn & Suites in Kanata is now finishing up a major renovation that included upgrading all of the rooms with new décor, along with new TV’s and mattresses, with every room now equipped with a microwave, mini-fridge and desk. The renovation work has also included the hotel’s pool, fitness centre and business centre, which now offers free internet access as well as printing and faxing facilities. The only work left to be done is a facelift for Graffiti’s Italian Eatery at the hotel, which will be done this July, with the restaurant to be closed while the work takes place. “We’re the best place to meet in Kanata, if I do say so myself,” Haining said. The Holiday Inn & Suites in Kanata has received awards from Ottawa Tourism for its customer service.

People across Canada have voted for the South March Highlands as one of Canada’s greatest places in the Great Places contest.

SMH in top three of Great Places contest Kristy Wallace

EMC News – Ottawa’s South March Highlands could soon be seen as one of the greatest places in Canada – all it needs is the community’s votes. The South March Highlands, along with Old Ottawa South, Ottawa’s Chinatown, and Sussex Drive, have been

nominated among the various categories in the national Great Places in Canada contest. “This is something right here in Ottawa, it’s a hidden gem and treasure and everyone can enjoy it,” said Jane Daly, a supporter of the South March Highlands. “(The highlands) are not just valued in Kanata, but

across the country.” Daly added that the highlands is currently in first place for the public spaces category and is in third place in the contest overall, with more than 14,000 votes. Even residents of British Columbia and Alberta have shown their support online for the South March Highlands, Daly said, with nearly

1,000 “likes” on Facebook and a fan club that started in Edmonton. Residents still have time to vote in the contest this weekend; it runs until midnight on Feb. 29. To vote and to see more spaces that were nominated, visit the contest website: greatplaces/en/places.asp?

Clean comedian prepares to sweep up the laughs

Clean comedian Leland Klassen, along with Matt Falk and Todd Neilson, are bringing the Laughopolis Comedy Combo Tour to the Kanata Baptist Church on March 10.

“This is really funny stuff, there’s just no filthy residue once it’s done. For me, it’s a belief system thing.” LELAND KLASSEN, COMEDIAN

dy Combo Tour to the Kanata Baptist Church on March 10. “That’s how clean this show is; we can go into a church and not have any problems,” said Klassen, who performed at the church in 2008. Clean comedy doesn’t mean his jokes aren’t funny or that they’re cheesy, he said. It just means he doesn’t sully the laughs with innuendo, sex or drugs. “This is really funny stuff,

there’s just no filthy residue once it’s done,” said Klassen. “For me, it’s a belief system thing.” The Laughopolis tour will feature three genres of humour, including improv, sketch and standup comedy. “It all mixes together into one uniform, funny show,” said Klassen. “Canada hasn’t seen anything like it.” The award-winning comedians first tested the idea of a comedy combo tour last year in B.C. The show received such an enthusiastic response that the tour was expanded this year to include Ontario, he said. “We’ll probably expand it again because it’s just been so successful,” said Klassen. “This tour … it’s got a little something for everybody. I think that’s why it’s been so successful. “It’s like watching a Pixar movie; there’s stuff for the kids but there are jokes for the adults too.” The event will take place at the Kanata Baptist Church, 465 Hazeldean Rd., on March 10 starting at 7 p.m. Tickets for the Laughopolis Comedy Combo Tour are $15.

Long gun registry dismantled by summer: O’Connor By Derek Dunn

EMC News – Now that the bill to end the gun registry has passed the House of Commons, Gordon O’Connor said the long-contentious issue should expire before the summer break. “It has to go through the (Conservative dominated) Senate for three readings,” said O’Connor, CarletonMississippi Mills MP. “I can’t see it going past the summer recess.” Critics say the Conservatives could have moved more quickly on dismantling the registry, but it has been an effective tool to rally core supporters and drum up campaign donations. But Bill C-19 hasn’t been

divisive in the rural-suburban riding. O’Connor’s heard from a few angry rural long gun owners, but not anyone hotly opposed to ending the registry. As for it serving to solve inner city gun violence, O’Connor said the registry was “basically a useless placebo” that interfered with hunters’ right to own long guns, borne of a Liberal attempt to “appear to be taking action” after the 1989 Montreal massacre of 14 women by a gunman with a rifle. “I don’t think a tragedy like that is preventable,” he said. “It’s like what we’ve been saying for many years, a criminal or unbalanced person isn’t going to register their guns.” Women’s safety propo-

nents say many of the Montreal victims could have been saved if guns were less pervasive, and that rural women are in greater danger if long gun sales are allowed to rise. stats

O’Connor said he isn’t aware of statistics showing rural women who’ve died from long guns is greater than by other means. But he suspects little will change. “I guess anything’s possible, I don’t know the statistics,” he said. “It’s not likely to change the statistics. I don’t think it will.” As for the government’s plan to destroy all related records, a move Quebec plans to file a lawsuit to prevent, O’Connor said it shouldn’t

come as a surprise. He doesn’t begrudge the Liberal government in Quebec doing whatever it needs to do to keep the records, but didn’t indict he is worried about losing in court. His party has run multiple elections on a promise to abolish the entire program. “It’s not a shock to people: we are only doing what we said we’d do.” He favours destroying all records because they are, in his opinion, out of date and inaccurate. As a strategic move that may have cost votes in Quebec, O’Connor doubts that is the case. He said rural people in largely progressive province are just as opposed to the long gun registry as elsewhere in Canada.

Gordon O’Connor But he denies that quashing the program will relax the rules, saying an almost 100year-old law restricting hand guns won’t be affected. O’Connor admits that his

party is facing a very different scenario now that it has a majority. The Conservatives have to stand by its record come next election, and opposition parties are free to oppose as vigorously as they want. The bill restricting refugee claimants ability to appeal, the bill to limit Internet freedoms in a bid to curb child pornography – which appears to have galvanized opposition from sectors – among other proposals, has O’Connor feeling the weight. “It does mean a lot rests on our shoulders,” he said. “We can’t say we share it with other parties. They can oppose, oppose, oppose and influence public opinion. And we have to keep abreast of what’s going on out there, too.”

Stittsville United Church lends a hand to help Nicaragua John Curry

EMC News - Building two houses. Constructing a security wall at a school. And creating murals. These are projects which a group of a dozen youth and adults from Stittsville United Church will be doing when they travel to Nicaragua this coming March. While there, they will be working alongside local residents in one of the poorest barrios in the capital city of Managua in undertaking these projects. They will be living with host families while in Nicaragua and besides working on their community development projects, they will also be visiting with church groups and other social service agencies to learn about what is being done there to help the six million people of Nicaragua who live in the second poorest country in the western hemisphere after Haiti. Half of the population lives on less than one dollar a day.

These funds are being supplemented by local funding. Already about $7,000 has been raised, thanks to a Time, Talent and Treasures Auction and spaghetti dinner last November, a fiesta night where traditional Nicaraguan dancing was performed, a series of Sunday brunches and a bottle drive. There have also been donations from members of the congregation as well as from others outside the Stittsville United Church community. This fundraising is meant to reduce the cost that must be borne by the individual trip participants. These individual costs are close to $3,000 per person, consisting of $1,200 per person for expenses while in Nicaragua, $1,200 per person for air fare and insurance, and $500 per person to cover costs related to the community work projects that the group is undertaking while in Nicaragua. The Stittsville church has ties to Nicaragua in that the

Right now, the group is making a final push on its fundraising, having already reached the $15,000 mark on the way to the $25,000 fundraising goal. Rev. Grant Dillenbeck, the minister at the United Church and the group leader, explained at last Sunday’s service where the Nicaraguabound group was introduced that funding for the trip to date has come from several sources including some from the United Church beyond the local congregation. The national office of the United Church has given $5,000 while $1,125 has come from the Presbytery’s Youth Ministry Fund.

United Church in Canada provides financial support annually to the Moravian Church, an affiliated church in Nicaragua. Dillenbeck said that those going to Nicaragua in March will see God at work not only in each other but in the faces of others in Nicaragua including the children. He said that the trip and the work to be done there will help those involved see how they can be instruments of God’s work in the world. third trip

This is the third time that a group from the local United Church will have travelled to Nicaragua to undertake community service work. The trip, which will take place from March 9 to 18, is being co-ordinated and hosted by Companeros, an organization based in Nicaragua that is dedicated to helping the people of Nicaragua and which was created by Gonzalo Du-

for this year by Companeros are installing a waste and sewage waste system, building houses, creating street murals, building a security wall at a school and constructing two classrooms. The Stittsville group is building two of the houses, working on the security wall at a school and doing street murals. The perimeter security wall

at the school is needed to protect the school and its library from vandals and gangs and to allow the youngsters there to feel safer. Donations can be made online at nicafund.hallconsulting .ca. Donations can also be made by sending a cheque to the Stittsville United Nicaragua Fund or by calling the Stittsville United Church at 613-836-4962.

Community benefits a ‘culture change’ for city planning Committee endorses payments for development uplift Laura Mueller

EMC News – Making developers pay for community perks when they propose big buildings isn’t going to convince neighbours that developers are really community builders, according to one builder. The city’s planning committee agreed to terms that allow it to collect money from builders who want to build large projects (over 7,000 square metres) that are at least 25 per cent taller than the current rules allow. The plan is to put that money, estimated at around 15 to 50 per cent of the property value, towards community projects like parks, affordable housing, streetscaping, libraries or other public amenities. While the city has a policy of intensification to bring denser development to the ur-

ban core, the city has struggled to keep up with those types of facilities that add to the quality of life, said John Moser, the city’s general manager of planning and growth management. “(This will) allow us to bring growth in line with the fabric of the existing neighbourhood,” he said. A policy to seek the payments under Section 37 of the Planning Act is not a giveaway of additional height for towers, Moser said, nor is it a moneymaker for the city. “This is a culture change and a new way of doing business for significant buildings,” he said. The city hopes that getting a little something back will make around 10 of the biggest construction projects each year more palatable to residents who already live in the area – but only if they represent good planning, city staff said before the planning committee endorsed the idea on Feb. 14. That could reduce trips to the Ontario Municipal Board, which hears appeals of city planning decisions. It’s a protocol that is often used in Toronto and other municipalities, but not yet in Ottawa. But the vice president of one of the city’s largest condo builders, Claridge Homes, said no policy or amount of contri-

Doug Casey, left, president of Charlesfort Developments, told the city’s planning committee on Feb. 14 that community benefit payments in exchange for taller buildings are a good idea and could set the trend of the city working in partnership more frequently with private industry. bution to the community will convince residents that builders aren’t the bogeyman. Developers already contribute to charities and sponsor community projects such as public facilities, said Neil Malhotra. “But we don’t get a lot of credit for it,” he added. In the end, the new “tax” will be passed down to homebuyers, driving up the cost of

real estate. However, he said the new policy will help shift the way developers approach building in urban areas. When they plan to develop hundreds of acres of empty land in the suburbs, developers consider where the schools, libraries and other amenities will go. But urban development is more piecemeal, Malhotra said. “We have to look at how to

make life better in the downtown,” Malhotra said. “We don’t have complete neighbourhoods in Ottawa.” STRONG SUPPORT

While the Federation of Citizens’ Associations of Ottawa had reservations about how the policy would be implemented, the FCA is strongly in support of the policy, said Hinton-

burg’s Jay Baltz, chairman of the FCA’s planning and zoning committee. “We see a lot of examples of uplift all across the city, and until recently, no community benefits,” said another Hintonburg resident, Linda Hoad. She said it’s time for communities that are experiencing the “joys and sorrows” of intensification to share some of the benefits. Planning committee chairman Peter Hume, the councillor for Alta Vista Ward, downplayed the significance of the policy, saying it won’t affect 95 per cent of developments in the city. “It will be the exceptions, not the rule,” he said. “It’s not going to be a culture shift.” The largest benefits will be realized in the “inner urban” zone. Ottawa will be the first Ontario municipality to use a complex formula to calculate the uplift valuem, something that will satisfy developers by making payments more predictable. In the “outer urban” area, the benefits will be calculated on a case-by-case basis, as is done in Toronto. Council will vote on the policy on March 28 and it would go into effect April 1. A year from now, councillors will get a report on the policy’s progress.

Queensway construction could run 24 hours Project to widen the 417 will close Lees ramp for three years, eastbound St. Laurent ramp permanently Laura Mueller

EMC News – Nearby residents and businesses might have to put up with 24-hour construction when the Queensway is widened between Nicholas Street at the split over the next three years. The massive project to add a lane in each direction on Highway 417 up to Regional Road 174 will get underway this summer, and Phil Pawlink, the program planner for the project from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, confirmed the ministry will request an exemption to the city’s noise bylaw. The public got a peek at the plans for the highway expansion on Feb. 13, and there was a lot of information to take in. The three-year closure of the Lees Avenue eastbound on-ramp came as an unpleasant surprise to some Old Ottawa East residents in attendance. Don Fugler said the closure would dump traffic onto Riverside Drive for those three

years. There will be other, shorter-term closures of bridges, nearby streets and on-ramps as pieces of the highway are replaced, including Lees Avenue for several weeks. One of the most significant impacts on local traffic in the future will be changes to onand off-ramps at St. Laurent Boulevard. A lightly used eastbound on-ramp on St. Laurent will be closed to the public and converted for transit use only. Access from the 174 westbound through the split will be cut off from the St. Laurent

exit to prevent the dangerous movement of too many vehicles trying to merge right over several lanes in an attempt to make a quick exit after the highway joins the Queensway. It’s similar to what the ministry did with the Moodie Drive exit where highways 416 and 417 meet. “There were some concerns regarding safe lane changing and the conclusion was that it was appropriate to close it,” said David Lindensmith, the senior project engineer with

Residents looked at plans for the Highway 417 expansion on Feb. 13. the ministry. But that left the city’s transportation committee chairwoman wondering where the displaced traffic would go. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson was at the Feb. 13 meeting, but said she hadn’t seen the final plans or how they might affect traffic

on city roads. “The two parts have to fit together,” she said. “That has an impact on changing the (traffic) flow. If they are closing a ramp I want to know how the traffic is going to flow onto our roads.” Lindensmith said drivers wouldn’t all choose the same

new route, but he envisions much of the traffic that would have used the St. Laurent ramps to choose Innes Road instead. Drivers (including transport-truck drivers) wanting to reach St. Laurent from the southwest could use Innes, or Oglivie and Blair roads, Lindensmith said.

About a third of the traffic exiting westbound on St. Laurent during a peak hour was trying to merge over from the 174, Lindensmith said. That’s about 130 vehicles (including a dozen trucks) during a peak hour that will have to find a new route on city streets. “There will be more trucks on certain parts of our roads,” Wilkinson said. “We’re going to have to take a look at it.” Sheila Perry, president of the Overbrook Community Association, said her major concern with the project is coordinating construction with the planned replacement of a large-diameter water main running through Overbrook to Orleans. “When I looked at this project I thought, ‘Wait a minute, this is going to be major dollars. Let’s just line this up from the start,’ ” Perry said. Natalie Séguin, who lives near Tremblay Road, said she wasn’t sure she could handle another three years of construction almost at her doorstep. The road in front of her house was torn up last summer, the highway nearby will be under construction for three years, and after that, construction on the city’s light-rail transit line will begin. “It’s a lot of construction,” she said.

Pool enclosure rules to become stricter EMC News – It could cost more to build a fence around your pool in the near future. Until now, Ottawa has only required a three-sided enclosure for pools, but the city is considering changes that call for full four-sided enclosures. While the previous rules were meant to protect kids from getting into the yard and slipping into the pool, the proposed change would also look to protect children inside the home from getting into the pool unsupervised. The proposal is still in the works and the city is asking for feedback on that change and other alterations to poolenclosure requirements before March 9. But if the change goes through, people would have to build a four-sided enclosure around new pools, or add another fence to an existing enclosure if they are replacing it, said Arlene Gregoire, the city’s director and chief building official. That change will also mean residents will need to re-apply for a pool-enclosure permit when they are replacing the fence, to ensure they know about the new guidelines and comply with them, Gregoire said.

“We wanted it to be more comprehensive,” she said. While city staff has consulted with industry stakeholders and some community groups, Gregoire said she is really hoping to get a pulse on how residents are reacting to the proposed guidelines through this public consultation. LOOPHOLES CLOSED

There was also a loophole in the bylaw when it came to temporary enclosures during the construction of a pool, Gregoire said. The new rules would fix that. The pool-enclosure bylaw hasn’t been reviewed since amalgamation in 2001 and the changes are overdue, Gregoire said. City staff compared

Ottawa’s guidelines to about a dozen other Ontario municipalities and to other jurisdictions around the world. “We needed to ensure it’s up to date and still effective,” Gregoire said. Council directed city staff to look into updating the policies three years ago, but there were no resources available at the time. Last year, with the release of an Ontario Coroner’s report on drowning deaths last summer, there was a new push for updated guidelines for Ottawa. The city usually issues between 850 and 900 pool enclosure permits each year, on average, and the fee is around $100. Compliance with pool-enclosure rules is monitored based on complaints through 311 and

bylaw services. To submit comments, visit to review more detailed information and contact the project manager, JP Mitton, at

NCC could follow city’s lead on smoking ban Rule differences could give NCC events competitive advantage: business groups Laura Mueller

EMC News – The National Capital Commission is closely watching the city’s progress in its attempts to restrict smoking in outdoor areas such as cityowned parks and beaches. While the NCC has no plan to pursue a similar policy for its own lands at this point, spokesperson Jean Wolff said the federal agency has a track record of aligning policies with the city. “We have a long and positive track record of partnership in terms of being supportive of each other’s objectives and regulations,” Wolff said. The NCC supports the public health objectives of the city’s policy, but it’s premature to talk about the commission adopting something similar, Wolff said. The expansion of the city’s non-smoking bylaw passed another hurdle on Feb. 15 when the city’s community and protective services committee endorsed the new rules. The bylaw would go into effect April 1 and would restrict smoking on outdoor restaurant and bar patios, as well as all city-owned properties, including parks, beaches and other city facilities, excluding those run by separate boards. Last week, some business groups expressed concerns that festivals that take place on NCC land would have a com-

Orleans Coun. Bob Monette says he wants the city to do everything possible to let the Fat Cats keep playing in the Coventry Road stadium while it’s under construction.

Class AA ball could end Fat Cats time at stadium EMC News – A plan to bring minor league baseball to the stadium in Overbrook received resounding support from the city’s de facto executive committee on Feb. 16. But the move leaves the future of the stadium’s current tenants, the interprovincial league Ottawa Fat Cats, uncertain. The recent departure of Duncan MacDonald, who had served as general manager of the Fat Cats, may have been related to the direction the city is moving in a partnership with Beacon Sports Capital Partners, suggested Brian Carolan, president of Ottawa Sports Group, which runs the Fat Cats. Beacon Sports is the group behind the proposal to bring a AA-level club to the stadium, a plan approved by the committee. The Fat Cats are still in talks with Beacon, Carolan said, but no progress has been made in creating a partnership that would allow both teams to share the stadium. MacDonald didn’t respond to a request for comment before this paper’s deadline. The plan approved by the committee would see major upgrades to the Coventry Road stadium starting this spring, including the installation of artificial turf. While the mayor and city manager assured the committee that every effort would be made to ensure the Fat Cats could play their season there this year, that begins at home on the May long weekend, city manager Kent Kirkpatrick said it would be a “difficult challenge.” City councillors who support baseball and support the Fat Cats efforts to bring new life and popularity to baseball in Ottawa said it’s possible the city could find another space for the Fat Cats to play, possibly by constructing temporary stands in a park. “They showed what we could do with baseball in this

city once again, and how we can create energy and fun and affordable entertainment,” said baseball booster and councillor for Orleans Ward Bob Monette. “I want assurances that they city will do everything it can to ensure the Fat Cats can work through the construction schedule so they can play their 2012 schedule.” But given the large crowds the interprovincial team has been attracting, Carolan said it’s unlikely they would be able to find a site that would work. “At no time did the city indicate to us that we weren’t going to come back, or that there was even any question,” he said. “So what’s happened in the last week or 10 days is concerning to us and it’s concerning to our league.” The deal approved with Beacon would see the city would spend $5.7 million on stadium maintenance and upgrades, while Beacon would contribute $5.5 million. It would be a 10-year lease and the city would charge $257,000 each year in rent.

nity that was “forced underground” with the failure of the Ottawa Lynx. “There is no shortage of community ball here, but there is a lack of pride in our city,” Ford said. But representatives from Beacon were mum on what that Eastern League affiliate might be, despite persistent rumours the owners of the Binghamton Mets are working on a deal to sell the club to Beacon Sports, which would move it to Ottawa for the start of the 2013 season. There have also been reports suggesting once the Binghamton club was relocated, the club would look to secure an affiliation deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, as their current deal in New Hamp-

shire runs out at the end of the 2012 season. In subsequent media stories, the Binghamton Mets management denied the club had been sold or had received any inquiries about selling the franchise. Peter Bachelor, representing a group called Friends of the Blue Jayz, said he was in complete support of the proposal, “especially if it’s under the auspice of the Blue Jays.” Kanata South resident David Gourlay announced he was pulling together local business leaders called the Champions of Ottawa Baseball initiative to bring community leaders together to help make the sport sustainable and successful in this city.


College Coun. Rick Chiarelli put forward a motion asking Ottaw public health staff to consult business owners and business groups about changes that could effect their bottom lines. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, head of the health board, asked city staff to report back on ways to regulate the use of water pipes or “hookahs” on city property. City council was set to give final approval to the smoking bylaw expansion on Feb. 22.

‘Facebook Ate My Daughter’ talk educates parents, teachers Social networking, texting, video games detrimental to lives of teens, doctor says Kristy Wallace


EMC News – For teenage boys, it’s not cool to be a scholar. For teenage girls, Facebook and texting is contributing to higher risks of anxiety and depression. These were just some of the findings that Dr. Leonard Sax presented at his talk Facebook Ate My Daughter – and my son can’t stop playing Call of Duty on Feb. 16 at Woodroffe High School. Sax, an American family doctor and psychologist, opened his talk by giving parents some insight as to why there are less young men graduating with a university degree. “Today, across Canada, men are likely to drop out, not to raise a baby, but to go back to their parent’s home and play video games in the basement,” said Sax. He said the trend ties back to a couple of reasons, including schools that foster a “boy unfriendly” environment. “There’s been an abolition of competitive formats

with well-defined winners and losers,” Sax said, adding nowadays everyone “gets a trophy.” School boards have fewer field trips, he said, and even something like disallowing snow balls to be thrown on school property creates a “boy unfriendly” environment. Sax said another reason there are fewer boys graduating university is singers like Akon and Eminem who promote a criminal, not academic, lifestyle. “It’s not that boys can’t become a scholar, they just don’t want to,” Sax said. Video games like Call of Duty are also not helping, he said, which promote violence and crime. “In Grand Theft Auto, your avatar can have sex with a prostitute,” Sax said. “Then you can take a gun, shoot her in the head and you can take your money back. In the game, that’s the best thing to do. Good is bad and bad is good.” He said video games like hockey, football and other

sports – played six hours a week or less - are considered better than games like Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty. “The longer you play a game like Grand Theft Auto, the more it changes you,” Sax said. “It makes you more selfish, changes the way you see women and changes your nervous system when you see a police car.” Boys think they’ll be seen as heroes among their friends for conquering a video game, he said, as opposed to getting an A on a test. While boys are ignoring their school work and playing video games, Sax said girls are more likely today to suffer anxiety and depression than they were 40 years ago. The rise of Facebook among girls between 13- and 17-years-old has had an impact on these girls, Sax said. While girls 20 years ago wrote in their private diaries, he said girls now are focusing on what photos they are uploading to Facebook. He also referenced research that said girls are uploading five times for photos than boys, and the photos are taken of themselves. “Girls are much more invested in their page,” Sax said, adding that depression can occur when teenage girls look at their friends’ profiles and see positive aspects of their life. “She’s thinking that her life sucks,” said Sax. “And if adults were sitting with her, her parents could explain that other girls are just putting the fun stuff on their page. “But in real life, their lives are not different. Everyone’s life is a series of disappoint-

eating dinner as a family with no cellphones allowed at the table. He referenced a Statistics Canada study that found fewer families are having dinner together, among new technol-

ogies and social media. “Twenty years ago, almost two-thirds of Canadian teens were having a meal with their parents in a 24-hour period,” Sax said. “Today, most aren’t.”

Ottawa airport named tops in North America Eddie Rwema

EMC News – Ottawa International Airport topped the list of airports in North America and placed second in airports of its size worldwide serving between two million and five million passengers. The airport service quality survey pegged Ottawa in the first spot for the region, based

on passenger satisfaction.

Living with coyotes in the community Ministry of Natural Resources

EMC News – Coyotes, like other wild animals, sometimes come into conflict with humans. Since migrating to Ontario from the west over 100 years ago, coyotes have adapted well to urban environments

and can now be found in both rural and urban settings. Changes in land use, agricultural practices, weather and natural food shortages may contribute to increased coyote sightings in your community. Landowners are responsible

for managing problem animals on their property. The Ministry of Natural Resources helps landowners and municipalities deal with problem wildlife by providing fact sheets, appropriate agency and animal control services referrals, and in-

formation necessary to obtain authorizations where required. The Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act sets out the legal actions property owners can take to deal with problem wildlife. Generally, landowners or their agents may capture, kill,

waste as well as products containing meat, milk and eggs. Pick ripe fruit from fruit trees and remove fallen fruit from the ground and keep bird feeders from overflowing as coyotes eat fruit, nuts, and seeds. Protect vegetable gardens with heavy-duty garden fences or place vegetable plants in a greenhouse. Check with your local nursery to see what deterrent products are available. Keep pet food indoors. • Use deterrents and fences to keep coyotes away from your home and gardens. Use motion-sensitive lighting or motion-activated sprinkler systems to make your property less attractive to coyotes and other nocturnal wildlife. Fence your property or yard. Electric fencing can also help deter coyotes from properties or gardens in some circumstances. Clear away bushes and dense weeds near your home where coyotes may find cover and small animals to feed upon. Close off crawl spaces under porches, decks, and sheds. • Cats and small dogs may be seen as prey by coyotes, while larger dogs may be injured in a confrontation. As coyotes are primarily nocturnal, pets should be kept inside at night. Keep all pets on leashes or confined to a yard. Keep cats indoors and do not allow pets to roam from home. Walk your dog on a leash at all times. Spay or neuter your dogs; coyotes are attracted to, and can mate with, domestic dogs that have not been spayed or neutered.

or harass problem wildlife to prevent damage to their property. There is no closed season for coyotes in the majority of southern Ontario. Homeowners can take steps to ensure coyotes aren’t attracted to their property and to keep their pets safe. To reduce the potential for coyote encounters, here are some tips: • Do not approach or feed coyotes. They are wild animals and should not be approached. People should not feed coyotes; feeding them makes the animals less fearful of humans and makes them accustomed to food provided by humans. • Never attempt to “tame” a coyote. Do not turn your back on or run from a coyote. Back away from the coyote while remaining calm. Use whistles and personal alarm devices to frighten an approaching or threatening animal. • Secure garbage and minimize things that attract coyotes to your property. Properly store and maintain garbage containers to help prevent coyotes from becoming a problem. Place trash bins inside an enclosed structure to discourage the presence of small rodents, which are an important food source for coyotes. Put garbage at the curb the morning of the scheduled pickup, rather than the night before. Use enclosed composting bins rather than exposed piles. Coyotes are attracted to dog and cat

The jail sentence and restitution handed down this month are in addition to 71 days in jail, $90,000 in fines, $37,946 in restitution and 75 hours of community service imposed on the owner by Provincial Offences Court in August 2011 for failing to provide agreed-upon services to several homeowners in the Ottawa area. Sentenced in Provincial Offences Court was Philip Slobodzian. Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act provides for fines of up to $250,000 for corporations and $50,000 for individuals convicted of offences. It also provides for jail terms of up to two years less a day for each offence. The act also empowers the court to order offenders to pay compensation or make restitution to victims.

EMC News – An Ottawa area contractor has been sentenced to 37 days in jail and payment of $14,000 in restitution for violating Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act. In April 2009, a homeowner in the Ottawa area hired PSC New Home Construction Inc. to build a garage. The homeowner paid a deposit of $5,000 to the company owner, but he failed to perform any of the work as agreed. The contractor then approached the homeowner’s elderly father for more money. He insisted on driving the father to his bank to withdraw and pay him an additional $4,000 towards the construction of the garage. Despite the total amount of $14,000 paid to the company owner, no work was done, no materials supplied, nor were any monies returned to the homeowner. The court found PSC New Home Construction Inc. and its owner guilty of: •Engaging in unfair practices by making false, misleading or deceptive consumer representations. •Failing to provide con-

Friends of the Farm take a trip to the theatre Kristy Wallace

EMC Events - The Friends of the Central Experimental Farm are gearing up to head to the theatre – and they’re inviting residents to join to them. The group is going to Upper Canada Playhouse in Morrisburg to see a matinee performance of Norm Foster’s The Foursome. “It’s a nice outing, and a nice day trip for a lot of people,” said Marilyn Tagoona of the Friends of the Farm.

Tagoona said the group has only taken the trip to Upper Canada Playhouse once before. The group chose Foster’s play because he’s a wellknown writer of comedy. Foster, a Canadian playwright, wrote The Foursome which is about four old friends who reunite after 15 years. They share their lives, stories and secrets and the Friends of the Farm say the audience will find the story funny and relatable. Following the matinee performance at the Mor-

risburg theatre, there will also be a dinner served at the legion by the Ladies’ Auxiliary League. The trip takes place on March 28, and a bus leaves the Agriculture Museum parking lot at noon and returns at 8:30 p.m. The matinee performance will take place at 2 p.m. and dinner at the legion follows at 5 p.m.The cost is $90 for members and $95 for nonmembers. To reserve a ticket, call 613-230-3276.

Enterprising youth who want to get a babysitting job or teach children to swim will find our leadership programs a step in the right direction. All leadership camps include friendship and fun!

Salter, William Silas

It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of our dear brother David (Ernie to many) on January 25, 2012. He was Bill (William S.) Salter’s chosen partner for over 36 years. Until his retirement, Ernie worked for almost 25 years at Island Lodge in Ottawa, caring for the elderly.

With great sadness our family announces Bill’s passing on Thursday, February 2, 2012.


A Memorial Service will be held for both Bill and David at a later date, when the weather is warm, the birds are singing, and the sun is shining. Should you so wish, in lieu of flowers to the family, donations may be made to your local Humane Society, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or a charity of your choice.

Squires, Ernest (David) Arthur

Those of us who remain will not forget this kind and thoughtful man. Bill’s family was his family. We all loved him. Elsie, Diane, Marilyn, Ted, Kim, and Beverly, and all of our extended families of children, grandchildren, nephews, and all of our extended families of children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces, cousins, etc.

David was wonderful to all of Bill’s family, ensuring their birthdays were remembered and sending gifts at Christmas. One of the greatest contributions David made for all of us was his deep fondness and concern for Bill’s mother, Elsie.

David loved to collect. He had an enormous collection of figurines that he was always changing. For a few years he collected the little Chinese pottery horses. Then Chinese Buddha figures. He collected little blown glass ornaments, paperweights, handmade trinket boxes, Bunnykins dinnerware, porcelain rabbits, miniatures of any sort (tea sets, animals, dishes), unusual cards that he loved to frame, miniature pictures, miniature vases, crosses and crucifixes, books. It is so difficult to remember all of them. If Bill liked something, David would scour the second hand stores trying to complete his collections for him.

Known for his involvement with the Art Communities in both Ottawa and Edmonton , Bill was an accomplished Canadian Artist. He tried, and was successful at, just about any form of artistic expression one could imagine - wood carving, weaving, macramé, pottery, pen and ink sketches, oil paintings, watercolours - the list goes on. He loved gardening and any place that he moved to he always managed to have a beautifully “klutzy” flower garden, with rocks and ornaments strategically placed. Two little Bonsais attest to his patience with plants. His inborn sense of form and beauty was most obvious in his landscaping. This was a wonder to behold, with the lovely arrangement of colours and types of plants that, to him, was a “no-brainer”. A place for everything and everything in it’s place: it just seemed to be natural to him.

In 1965, Bill earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Alberta . A Masters Degree in Geography followed in 1968, and he worked 2 more years on a Doctorate when he decided to chuck it in and become, what he called, a full time “starving artist”. Bill was pre-deceased by his partner of 36 years, David (Ernest Squires). Their beloved (and pampered) pet dog Rusty still remains. His Dad, Lt.Col.W.H. (Bill) Salter passed away in 2005. Bill’s Mom, Elsie Salter, lives in Richmond as well as his sister Bev. His other two sisters, Diane and Marilyn, as well as two brothers, Ted and Kim, live in Alberta . He leaves numerous nieces and nephews and multitudes of friends to mourn his loss. A Memorial Service for both Bill and David will come at a later date, when the weather is warm, the birds are singing, and the sun is shining. Should you so wish, in lieu of flowers to the family, donations may be made to your local Humane Society, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or a charity of your choice.

The Healthy Eating for Life Chinese Banquet was a success last year, and now community partners are gearing up to host the second annual banquet on March 1.

Annual banquet promotes healthy eating Kristy Wallace

EMC News – What started as a project to collect 60 healthy recipes for the Chinese community in 2009 has since turned into an annual banquet hosted by community partners to bring awareness to healthy eating habits. The second annual Healthy Eating for Life 2012 Chinese Banquet will take place on March 1 at Yangtze Restaurant in Ottawa’s Chinatown. The banquet is being hosted by the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Diabetes Association and the Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre. “What we found what was really unique and different were non-profit organizations working together, getting out the same message and really

focusing it around something fun and innovative, including diversity,” said Micheline Turnau, community mission specialist with the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “In Canada, in Ontario and in Ottawa, it’s a very diverse community and we need to be thinking about different messaging to reach different communities.” Turnau said the banquet came out of Healthy Eating for Life, an Ontario-based initiative launched in 2009 and provides health information and 60 recipes for the Chinese community. According to the Health and Stroke Foundation, Canadian women who are of Chinese origin have the highest stroke death rates. Also, the foundation says there is “relatively poor awareness of warning symptoms” of stroke among

the Canadian Chinese community. “It’s always hard to attribute it to one cause,” said Turnau, adding that factors such as stress of immigrating to a new country and change in diet when they arrive could be a couple factors. Karina Kwong, a master of public health student who is doing her placement with Turnau, added that nowadays there is more awareness of how to avoid heart disease and stroke. “I think there’s a tremendous awareness, especially with the Heart and Stroke Foundation and all these promotional materials,” she said. “It has increased education and awareness.” Kwong also described what will be served at this year’s banquet as part of the ninecourse meal including hot and sour soup, ma po tofu and kung pow chicken with vegetables. Turnau said the event sold out last year, and from feedback people said they didn’t know the difference in the way the food was cooked. “(The restaurant) is basically following Canada’s food guide, reducing sodium and including more fruits and vegetables,” she said. In addition to the nine-course meal, banquet participants will also receive a healthy recipe book that they can take home. Senator Vivienne Poy, who was a keynote speaker at the first annual event, will be there again this year. “She was really quick to come on board again, and she’s really supportive of the event,” said Turnau. The Healthy Eating for Life 2012 Chinese Banquet will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Yangtze Restaurant, 700 Somerset St. West. Tickets are $38 per person.

Nepean women look to change the world Group will work with Kanata CFUW chapter for Ben Franklin event Jennifer McIntosh

Olivier Asselin photo

A child is vaccinated against meningitis at a Medecins sans Frontieres site in Rogogo, Maradi Region, Niger in 2009. A new book published by the organization, Humanitarian Negotiations Revealed, discusses some of the difficulties aid organizations are experiencing as they try to operate in war-torn countries around the globe.

Book looks at challenges of humanitarian intervention

EMC News – Authors from a humanitarian non-governmental organization visited the University of Ottawa as part of a cross-country tour arranged in part to search for the answer to the central question of their new book. Created by Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors Without Boarders), the book Humanitarian Negotiations Revealed asks why the space for humanitarian organizations use to occupy in developing or war-torn countries is becoming smaller and smaller. It explores the viewpoints surrounding the importance of finding compromise when it comes to working with countries in need. Co-editor of the book Claire Magone was part of the tour that made a stop at the University of Ottawa on Feb. 15 and said the purpose of the tour was to spark a debate

about the issues discussed in the book. “Before there was a time NGO’s were operating more freely, but now we are facing tougher times,” Magone said. “And even though there has never been a ‘golden age’ where it was easy to do humanitarian acts, now we are trying to find a shared interest between saving lives and ensuring the interests of the politicians are met. “The difficulties have become bigger and bigger and this book is trying to look for the explanation of why that is.” The book follows the organizations trials and tribulations since 2003. Magone said the book is a jumping-off point for the kind of discussions the authors hope the tour will generate. “We are not expecting a winning formula, but a discussion of the facts, issues and concerns,” Magone said.

One of the ideas discussed in the book focuses on making compromises with what can often be perceived as an “enemy” faction working in a given country. Magone said this suggestion can be perceived both in a good way and in a bad way. “For some people, it is hard to see the enemy in a war as a partner for aid, but for us, we need to make friends with the enemies to be able to offer aid,” Magone said. As a basic principle for an organization to be successful saving lives, Magone said, such compromises are what groups like Médecins sans Frontières must strive to find. “We are looking at finding balance between our efforts and the politics of a country,” she said. The book is available to read online in both French or English at www.msf-crash. org/livres/en/humanitariannegotiations-revealed.

EMC News – A group meets at the Knox United Church once a month and look to change the world for women everywhere. The group of 34 women is part of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Nepean chapter, which provides an opportunity for community engagement, fundraising and friendship. The small group has managed to raise $9,500 for the practical nursing program at Algonquin College since 2006. Kathy Mitchell, who was an instructor in the program before she retired and is a member of CFUW Ottawa, and said she is amazed that such a small group of women could fund the scholarship trust and sustain it over six years. The scholarships are given to students whose marks and effort make them good candidates. “They also have to demon-

strate financial need,” Mitchell said. The group, which came into being in 1991, meets the first Tuesday of each month from September to May and invites speakers to discuss a wide range of topics. At the group’s February meeting, they invited Kaitlyn Finner, a retired junior fellow from Carleton University chapter of Engineers without Borders. Finner outlined work she did with rural farmers in Ghana. Often though, the group doesn’t need to look outside their own membership for interesting topics to discuss. Member Pat Amundrud regaled the members of an offshoot group called the Armchair Travellers with her trans-Siberian train excursion, complete with a slideshow of pictures from St. Petersburg and Moscow. Christine Fuller also told the group about her travels to Sweden during another meeting. The group of women seems to constantly be on the go,

looking for a new project. The national CFUW was founded in 1919. Its membership currently boasts 10,000 women university graduates in 112 clubs across the country. Judy Loa, who recently joined the Nepean club, said she enjoys the camaraderie and sense of community spirit. Mitchell, who was a YWCA Women of Distinction Global Humanitarian Award recipient in 2011, said women have the power to create change and move the world forward. It’s to that end the group will be collaborating with Kanata and Ottawa chapters, as well as the Ottawa Council of Women to host an International Women’s Day event at Ben Franklin Place on March 6. Entitled Empower Women Change the World, the bill will include the CFUW - Kanata Guitar Groovers, RCMP Misérable Ride and Carol Ann Cole – cancer survivor, author and founder of the Comfort Heart Initiative, a charity to raise money for cancer research, as guest speaker. The event will take place on March 6 at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25. Registration is at www. For more information on the Nepean club, visit

By the time students graduate from high school, they’ve probably had two or three student teachers in their classrooms. Some are fresh out of teacher’s college, and others are completing their third teaching job. Most of the time you can tell who the new ones are. But sometimes you can. Mr. Hempel is a student teacher at All Saints, who has been assigned to teach some of Mr. Morreau’s Grade 12 university-level chemistry classes. It’s his first teaching experience outside of Ottawa University’s faculty of education. Not that you’d know it from his clean articulation, wellplanned lessons, and confidence at the front of the classroom. Mostly, his teaching technique was honed over the seven years he spent as a squadron warrant officer for the air cadets. He was responsible for planning all of the cadet activities, and their training drills, and taught lessons related to aviation. It was after he had finished working with the air cadets, and after the completion of his undergraduate degree, that Hempel “knew for certain that [teaching] was a good career choice.” Hempel went to the University of Western Ontario, where he received an honours specialisation in biology. He then went on to study at Guelph University to complete a minor in chemistry. Hempel learnt the most not during high school or elementary school, but from his university experience.

Every year at All Saints Catholic High School, the music department puts on a Battle of the Bands, and every year, it’s a huge success. The event features five school bands of many genres, handpicked by a panel of judges, who have the chance to compete for recording time at Ottawa’s Raven Street Studios. It’s quite the opportunity for up-andcoming musicians. Last year’s Battle of the Bands, or BotB, featured seven groups in total. Dee Van Zee, led by All Saints’ own music teacher Deanna VanZeeland, kicked the show off with a bang, covering classic pop rock songs like Black


Horse & The Cherry Tree. The five competitors performed next - death metal group Denounced, mainstream rockers Defeat the Purpose, allfemale acoustic performers Only Us, folk rock band Glass Ghost, and metalcore trio Sky Magenta. During deliberation, punk performers Slightly Toxic entertained the audience. Great performances were given by all the bands, but only one could come out on top - Glass Ghost. in the limelight

Going up to accept their prize, the guys beamed, enjoying the limelight and the cheering from screaming fans. This past summer, Glass Ghost cashed

in their winnings of seven hours recording time. Their first single, Toy Boats, was released on their Facebook page for free download through Soundcloud on Aug. 21. Proceeds from the event go towards the music department to fund trips such as this year’s New York City trip, buy new music, instruments and equipment. Always a highlight of the events calendar every year, Battle of the Bands is definitely here to stay. BotB 2012 is already in its planning stages, and groups are getting ready to shred, blast and belt their way to victory. It’s quickly revving up to be one awesome year for the All Saints music department.

Inspiration to teach started in Grade 12 biology: Hempel TEACHER, from 49

“I taught myself and I had to be responsible – when you fork out thousands of dollars to attend school, it gives you a different perspective on why you’re there,” said Hempel. After six years of being out of high school, Hempel says that coming back gives him a feeling that is “kinda nostalgic, but, from my new prospective as a teacher, it’s exciting.” His inspiration to teach started with his Grade 12 biology teacher, Mrs. Colwell, who was, according to Hem-

pel, “the first teacher who presented materials to me in a way that made sense.” Hempel is a big believer in student-teacher interaction when it comes to classroom activities. Describing a theory or activity using objects and being “involved with the other student...just makes the learning experience more fun.” He most likes “being able to help people overcome their challenges.” Don’t get yourself caught in one of his classes in the future if you’re squeamish though – Hempel’s dream job consists of teaching Grade 12,

university-level biology, where he “would do dissections every day.” Hempel’s advice to those wanting to become teachers is “focus on your grades during undergraduate, and be involved in teaching activities outside of school.” He jokes that you should “start planning lessons now, because they do take a lot of time to put together.” Wherever teaching takes him in the future, it is clear that Hempel will be more than prepared for what the classroom can throw at him.

Starring on the mike: hardcore gamer finds niche in singing Jordan Ferguson

Hungry. The one word Michael Zadra would use to describe himself. Hungry for knowledge, for success, improvement, and of course the obvious, food. What teenage boy isn’t? But this Grade 12 academic student and self proclaimed “Hardcore Gamer” recently found himself a niche in singing. Zadra describes his talent as almost an accident. Front man Corey Taylor (Slipknot, and Stone Sour)

can be thanked for Zadra’s discovery. For while listening to his favorite song, “Bother – Stone Sour” he attempted to mimic Taylor’s voice. Finding it didn’t sound half bad, he joined with close friend Evan Swire, they “just jammed.” Students Ryan Daly on rhythm guitar, Marty Perron on bass and Ryan Bochert on drums complete their band. Zadra is a new addition to this year’s All Saints’ prestigious Bluesettes and Co. He’d never put much thought into trying out before and he waited until he had something

to offer, to really make him stand out. This strategy resulted in earning him the first solo of the year and a breathtaking performance at the All Saints Remembrance Day ceremony. “It was such an overwhelming response,” says Zadra, “I feel like a bit of a celebrity.” When listening to music or performing it Zadra says, “You know you’ve lost yourself in a song when you channel a response within your body.” Like most students his age, Zadra is weighing his options

for next year. “I could be an engineer or something, but now that I’ve found this passion for music, I’m afraid it would not be interesting enough.” Zadra is on the fence about whether he will attend university or to take a gap year and pursue music. He is confident in his bandmates stating a band can only tell if they will be able to succeed once they create their own sound -- a plan for his band in the upcoming months. “We’re on the verge,” says the hungry singer. “Time will tell.”

Chloe Lemay stars in All Saints production of Xanadu Katherine Davidson,

ORIANA LADEROUTE of guidance. She loves being connected to the students through the various teams, committees and programs she is involved in. She understands youth need positive, healthy relationships with adults and her career as a guidance counselor and involvement in the school community allows her to build these crucial relationships with students. RESPECT

She believes mutual respect between students and teachers is most important for a successful teaching environment and that a good teacher is one who recognizes that everyone learns in their own way and thinks “outside the box” to suit the needs of individual students. “Mrs. Laderoute is such a fabulous, understanding lady,” says Grade 12 student Taylor Bedard. “She is accepting and genuinely interested in our lives. That’s what makes a good teacher.”

Act 1, scene 1: a girl in a Greek robe steps out on to a dark stage. The lights come up, and she starts to sing. Just another day in the life of Chloe Lemay, a Grade 12 student and one of the go-to drama kids at All Saints. Xanadu, a love story full of gods, goddesses, mythology and roller skates, is All Saints’ 2011-12 musical, and this starlet’s fourth musical as part of the drama department. Lemay really feels at home on the stage. It’s a lot of work, but she says, it’s worth it. “There’s a moment before you go on stage - first, you’re all nerves, you can’t remember your lines, and you’re scared. Then you step out of the wings, the lights come up and it turns into a big adrenaline rush. “You know that this is where you want to be, and everything that’s stressing me out just vanishes. It’s fun being someone else for an hour.” Musical theater is just the first big production in a year full of performances and drama presentations. Lemay says that she looks forward to everything that the drama department does during the year – musical theater first, then drama class and production class, not to mention all the little performances in between. When one ends, another begins. It’s the great cycle of requirements to a triple-threat like Lemay. Her favourite things are the energy and the camaraderie. “It helps a lot being friends

I got a lot closer with them, as well as with the (girls playing the) muses, since we’re all in the same scenes.” Her favourite production was City of Angels back in Grade 9. “It was new to me back then, so of course your first musical is the best in your mind. I do like the fact that I have a part this time though.” But how does she manage her performing life with school, work and other extra-

curriculars? “I end up booking a lot of time off work,” she laughs. “I run run run all week, and then usually take Saturday off. Then it all starts again on Sunday. I get tired and sick a lot, but I love what I do so much that it doesn’t matter.” The NAC is the setting for the final scene of this act: the Cappies Gala. It is an event held every year to showcase and celebrate high school drama productions. Cappies critics, student

volunteers who attend every production in Ottawa throughout the year, write reviews and pick nominees and winners for a myriad of categories, such as best lead actor/actress, best set and best ensemble. All Saints has done very well in the past, sweeping 15 awards in 2009. The glitz, glamour, and (hopefully) glory that comes with being a musical theater superstar in high school. Lemay is definitely going places, so keep your eyes on the skies for this rising star.

She grew up in Thunder Bay, Ont., with her six siblings, and her large Italian family made her into the compassionate counsellor she is today. Laderoute has had a passion for children and youth since a young age “I loved working at summer camps throughout high school.” says Laderoute, “so a career with kids was a natural and logical pathway for me.” Her teaching career began in 1985 at a Quebec school. In 1997 she moved to Kanata where she began working as a resource teacher at Holy Trinity Catholic High School. She transferred to All Saints Catholic High School when it opened in 2002 and began teaching contemporary studies. She later began working in the student achievement centre, helping students struggling with their classes. Laderoute has always been actively involved in the school community, and even lead student council for a few years. She is currently a guidance counsellor at All Saints and runs the ACT team, peer helpers, dual credit programs, and the Grade 7 and 8 Ambassadors. She is also part of the Catholic Caring Committee, a group dedicated to supporting initiatives for the entire school community.

Voting is a way to celebrate our democracy Allison Pratt

Opening the newspaper or flipping to the news channel on T.V. is only the first step. For most students taking that small step is like a giant leap. It’s crazy how little Canada’s youth know about politics especially in Canada’s capital city where political figures, buildings and history spread throughout the city. Students and youth put politics up on this high pedestal that only adults can talk about. They feel like their opinions are unimportant compared to

economical development and lowering taxes. Little do they know, the youth vote is the one of the most competitive votes to achieve amongst the federal party leaders. They want your vote, so give it to them! Being brought up in a politically conscious family has given me the advantage of knowing a lot about Canadian politics from a young age. I have been to many campaign meetings and watched the elections on television ever since I could remember. I have a strong outlook on many of the party’s views and action plans.

Getting involved doesn’t mean you have to picket signs outside of Parliament. It only concerns your ability to listen with open ears and make an informed decision. When making a choice for a party to vote for, do a little background research on different political parties and what they’re MPPs (member of provincial parliament) have to offer for Canada, your province and/or your city. The most important way of engaging yourself in politics is getting to know an MPP or someone in politics. It’s the best way to get first hand information and advice.

As another election heads our way in the future don’t look at it negatively. The 2010 federal election was thought of by most students and youth as unnecessary and a waste of government money. This way of thinking lost many of the youth vote in Canada. So look at federal elections as a way of celebrating our precious democracy that many countries are at war for. Start trending politics and see the difference it makes in your community, province, and country. Take a few minutes out of your life to inform yourself and speak up today, for our world of tomorrow.

tedly, there were some heavier themes present such as teen pregnancy and infidelity. However, they were dealt with more subtly – the show’s main focus was still the music.

come down to that. Here is the ugly truth: it is all about the ratings. After season one of Glee, the writing noticeably lost its novelty and flair. So now, the writers must resort to desperate dramatic endeavours to interest the viewer and in the act, have lost their younger viewers. Glee has undeniably struck a chord with their new directions in writing and plot, sparking interest and controversy among viewers and non-viewers alike. Be that as it is, many Gleeks like me are feeling disenchanted and disappointed by Glee’s new tune. It makes me wonder, is it really so impossible for a TV show to be a source of entertainment for the whole family?


The Ug-Glee Truth As a 15-year-old outcast who loved singing, I immediately connected with Rachel Berry. I would tune into Glee every Tuesday night religiously to see how she would defeat the latest competition and transcend high school’s little awkward moments. Now, Rachel and I are both in our graduating year and I’m not so sure that we will be roughing it out together. The writers of Glee are starting to shift the show’s main focus on to more mature subjects, such as alcoholism and sexuality, changing the show as I knew and loved it. I’m not the only one who has been disappointed by the changes.

Some parents are also outraged and stopping their kids from watching the show. Recently, my parents decided to watch an episode with me. Of course, they both had to choose the night they aired an episode entitled “The First Time.” Though you probably already guessed, that episode’s theme was sexuality. Now, I’m not generally a prudish person, but there were several instances throughout that episode where I wanted to bury my head in a cushion and just die. It was just too awkward to watch with my parents. But once upon a time, Glee was something you could watch with your parents. In its first season, Glee truly was a family show. Admit-

OSU FORCE ACADEMY 99 GIRLS WIN SILVER IN INDOOR ONTARIO CUP This past weekend, a group of girls from the 99 Force Black squad, won silver at the Ontario Indoor U13 Provincial Championships. Their first game was against the Richmond Hill Raiders, who finished second in their preliminary round. The Force came out flying and quickly went ahead 1-0. Not content to sit back, the girls continued to pressure and dominated in the offensive zone, which lead to many quality chances but only one additional goal. Final score 2-0. Next up was Stony Creek Saltfleet, the winner of their preliminary round and a team that defeated the Force two years ago at the Robbie International tournament. Final score 1-1. The last game of the day was against the newly constituted, Whitby squad. Despite the obvious physical disadvantage and the challenge of playing against a full, well-rested bench, the girls continued to display their soccer skill and tactical play. With the play going back and forth, neither team’s defense were providing the opposition with many scoring opportunities, until a high bouncing ball resulted in a goal-against late in the game and the girls taking a 1-0 loss. After group play, the Force were tied with Stony Creek Saltfleet. However, the girls benefited from an OSA mandated tie-break rule that saw them advance to the semi-finals. The next day, the girls resolved to not squander their opportunity as they were facing Ontario #1 ranked Unionville-Milliken. Showing their determination and dedication to defensive play, the girls shut-down their opponents and advanced to the finals with a 1-0 win. Ninety minutes later they were on the field playing for the championship, again against Whitby. In an effort to avenge their earlier loss, the girls came out flying, confident in their knowledge that they were no longer considered the tournament underdog. The girls left it all on the field and despite their disappointment were pleased to be silver medal championship finalists. To allow only three goals-against in five games against the best teams in Ontario is a testament to their dedication to the team game and unselfish play. The girls are anxious for the outdoor season to begin so that that can fully demonstrate their skill on the full field, secure in the knowledge that they are underdogs no longer! Congratulations to Shona, Gabby, Sarah, Gracie, Amelia, Annie, Jodie, Gillian, Anna, Micha, Vicki, Coach Mike, Coach Shawn, Tournament Manager Denise, and Trainer Cathy.

Globe-trotting student takes advantage of exchange program

Positive Change for Kanata South

Danielle Star

The Kanata-Kourier Standard is now on Facebook:

Stay connected and informed!

Many students dream about studying abroad, but few actually take the initiative to experience life overseas. Among those few is 17 year-old equestrian Pascale Lepine, who seizes every opportunity of travel that comes her way. Lepine has so far participated in four educational exchanges. She has been to France, the UK, Italy, and the Dominican Republic. In her Grade 10 year, Lepine lived in France for three months with the Ribaud family in Le Mans. Through an international exchange program, Pascale was paired with Camille Ribaud, a France native and fellow equestrian. Lepine says, “We got along really well and we became really close.” While in France, Lepine got to visit Paris, Strasbourg, and Normandy- where her family once lived. One of Lepine’s favourite things about France was the food. She claims that you eat so many rich foods that you “swell up like a balloon”. Lepine also took part in the All Saint’s trip to Dominican Republic last March break. Students experienced the different living conditions in a developing country. For Lepine, the aspect of visiting host families impacted her the most. While among the families, she noticed that family and community were more important to the people. “They don’t have nearly as much as we do, but they have each other”. Last year, Lepine also attended the school’s Italy and France trip, which will be going on again in March of 2012.

Over the summer, before her final year of high school, Lepine took a Grade 12 English course in the UK, through a company called Global Journeys. Students studied English literature in universities in England, Scotland, and Ireland. This experience greatly influenced Lepine’s plans for the future. She now wants to

eventually transfer to an Irish university to complete an undergraduate degree in business. Later on, she will obtain her MBA abroad. GUIDANCE

Lepine believes that her experiences abroad have been crucial in guiding her through her adolescent years.

“Travelling so much at such a young age helped me develop who I am and has given me an image of who I want to become.” So, what are her plans in the meantime? Travel, of course. She hopes to visit Peru during March break and France to see Camille Ribaud over the summer.

Transit service, winter maintenance, police, fire and paramedic services, and library and recreation programs are all services that affect residents. Find out more about these services, as well as City facilities, and how the City is serving residents directly from the Mayor. At 8 pm, a community police update will be given by Constable Stephanie Glenn, who is filling in for Constable Strotmann. As well, information will be provided on the approval of a second apartment in the town centre at 1025 Canadian Shield, the library expansion, International Women’s Day, the status of zoning applications, upcoming construction on Highway 417 and recent Council decisions. Residents are encouraged to ask questions or make comments on any item of interest to them.

PARK VANDALISM Residents have expressed concern over litter, broken glass and general vandalism in one of our parks. The police have been helpful in checking the park. They have asked community members to call them when they observe such activities in the park (or other places) so that a potential problem area can be monitored by them and any problems dealt with quickly. By being the eyes and ears for the police and bylaw services we’ll be better able to maintain our communities as safe and attractive places.

2011 CENSUS RESULTS The 2011 Census numbers have now been released. Kanata North has experienced a 30.3 % increase in population in the period from 2006 to 2011, with 8,021 new residents. Over all, the three urban wards west of the Greenbelt grew by 17,974 (Stittsville 7,139 and Kanata South 2,814). Growth in the east end adds up to 11,695 and to 24,447 in Barrhaven and Riverside South combined. Together, the urban communities outside the Greenbelt have increased by 54,116, with the rural municipalities adding another 4,098. So outside the Greenbelt counted for 58,214 of the total population increase, while inside the Greenbelt added only 13,048. The total population increase for all of Ottawa is 71,262. That means that 82% of the increase in population lives outside the Greenbelt! Is it any wonder that our buses are crowded, roads congested, libraries, playing fields and other community facilities are taxed to the limit?

INCOME TAX CLINICS Free income tax preparation services are being provided by certified general accountants for households with a gross income of up to $25,000 for individuals or $30,000 for families. This service is being offered at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, 2 MacNeil Court, Kanata on Saturday March 17th. Make an appointment by calling 613-591-3686 ext. 750. Be sure to bring all documentation with you to your appointment.

CARP LANDFILL INFORMATION Waste Management is nearing the end of its environmental assessment of a new landfill, which they want to add to their site on Carp Road. Many residents are concerned about having another large landfill so close to residential development. Information on the process is at . New reports on atmosphere, noise, dust, landfill gas, combustion and odour have recently been added to the website under Open House #4. The completed assessment will be forwarded to the Ministry of the Environment for approval. The west end Councillors have concerns over such a major expansion and have expressed these to Waste Management. The City will review the final report and send their recommendations to the Ministry. The City does not control approval of landfill sites.

NCC DISCUSSION FORUM The NCC is asking for input to bring together the ideas they’ve heard from their cross-Canada consultation. These will be integrated into a new plan for achieving a vision of the future of the Capital. You can contribute your thoughts and ideas on what you feel Canada’s Capital should be in 2067, through an online discussion forum open until March 16th 2012 at Horizon 2067 on the NCC website.

For most senior students, juggling four classes a semester is tough. English, science, the arts, and philosophy are hard enough without extra-curricular work as well. But Emma Armitage is a no ordinary senior. She is a part of the school musical production Xanadu, a member of improv’s A-Team, a participant of National Novel Writing Month, and as crazy as it sounds, a full time student. Her love of acting began as a spontaneous part in Grade 7. “I had no friends, I used to sit in the stairwell at lunch and read Harry Potter, but then I got into the plays and met a lot of new people,” she says. Armitage, also a great Potter fan, stuck with acting from grades 7 to 8, and then from 10 to 12. She enjoys doing musicals, and especially improv where she gets gives her a chance to form a family with the other actors and let loose. Her writing career, began as a result of being so busy. “I was doing so much work and I had no interests, I needed a creative outlet,” says Armitage. “Writing is really what creativity is about, reading books allows people to be in different worlds, so the opportunity to be the person creating those worlds was fantastic.” “Emma’s writing is so fresh and original,” says her writer’s craft teacher Caroline Pignat. “She writes with a strong voice and a great sense of humour that often has me laughing out loud as I read.” For the second year, Armitage is doing National Novel Writing Month, a 31-day-long challenge to write a 50,000 word novel, another trying activity that makes November a difficult month, but she says it’s important that writers challenge themselves. “It’s gratifying to finish 50,000 words in a month while doing so much other stuff. This year is simpler, and writers craft helps a lot. But I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t love it.” Author? Performer? Historian? Psychologist? There are lots of interests that Armitage would be happy to pursue but her dream job is archaeologist. Optimistic for the future she remains equally light-hearted about its uncertainty. “I don’t know what the future is for Emma Armitage, she’s kind of lost and likes to speak in third person sometimes.”

Former All Saints student takes business into ‘her own hair’ Taylor Hewitt

Everyone has a unique sense of fashion, but Jessica Loren Roedig is no featherweight when it comes to style. In fact, her feather extensions business is taking off. Sure to add that little “extra something” to any outfit, the feather hair extensions come in a range of colours and lengths (eight to 16 inches.) It seems like the perfect part-time home-based business for this All Saints graduate and

first year Algonquin College student, however it does have its challenges. “Because I am a full time business student and have a part time job I find it hard to have time for creating advertisements and getting myself out to trade shows,” says Roedig. Roedig has now started ordering feathers from what seems like the far corners of the globe. “I order them from all over

the world now. I sometimes get them from Colorado, California or even places in Europe,” she says. She does this business mainly by herself, however she had some help before she got started. “All Saints prepared me for starting my own business by offering many different business class electives – grades 10 through 12,” says Roedig. “The marketing business class I took at All Saints made me

These feathers last forever, can be reused as many times as you like, and they can be curled, straightened, washed and blow dried. Roedig has created a unique and successful business. “The positive feedback from all my clients is one of the best parts of my business and I love having something trendy for everyone,” says Roedig. “It’s definitely a plus being able to make my own decisions about my brand and how I market

realize that my passion for innovating and selling was so much stronger than I had imagined.” Her feather extension business allows customers to “express themselves in a unique way. No feather is the same size, shape or length as the other, making them all a way of reflecting their fashionista’s own personal style.” Right now, there is high demand for the Christmas themed feather extensions.

my vision.” Her advice to other young entrepreneurs? “Don’t be afraid to be different and out of the box with your ideas, strive to evolve your product or service until you are 100 per cent satisfied with what you have created. And make sure you have a solid business plan - as well as a plan B - before you start!” For more information, visit her website at www.facebook. com/featherswithlove.

Scholar, producer, volunteer: Grade 12 student born to lead Maja Dziok

Grade 12 is a big year. It’s a time of stress and anxiety about the future. Most Grade 12’s find themselves struggling to simply keep their marks afloat, but not Sarah Maritan. In fact, Maritan seems to be somewhat of a super student. With a busy social life and a jaw dropping average, Maritan on top of it all has managed to commit hundreds of


hours to her community and school. Maritan plays a vital leadership role to all of her peers. She has participated in Leadership Camp and this year was chosen as a group leader, ready to guide the other students that attended the camp. Last year she was also chosen to go to the school board with a group of students to talk about the Speak Up in a Box program. This year she was made a

forum host leader in Speak Up, meaning that she is one of the students that run the sessions. “It was really great to be chosen (to be a forum host), since it’s student run I really think that this year things will go very well,” says Maritan. On top of all that, Maritan has managed to find the time to be the production manager of the All Saints musical; Xanadu. She is the person who ran the entire tech behind the show, which ran in late November. She made sure everything ran smoothly and designed all the lights and sound. Though, as she modestly puts it, “I sit in the dark corner

with a prompt book and flashlight talking into my headset to all those running the lights and sound.” And if that isn’t enough, Maritan has dedicated past summers to volunteering at the Queensway Carleton Hospital. She worked at the greeting table and delivered cards and flowers to patients. “I loved that job, I would always be the bearer of good news and I loved making so many different people’s days.” She has put a lot of time into all of these amazing causes, and we are sure to hear more of Sarah Maritan after Grade 12 – she was born to take the lead.

RELOCATION OF ALMONTE FAMILY PHYSICIANS’ OFFICES The family physicians who belong to the Ottawa Valley Family Health Team are moving from their current offices into a single clinic location at 95 Spring Street (the renovated first floor of the former Fairview Manor building).


30,000+ BOOKS for sale!

The physicians moving are Dr. Heather Abramenko, Dr. William Blaine, Dr. Christiane Deschenes, Dr. Mike Dolan, Dr. Franz Ferraris, Dr. Melissa Forbes, Dr. Ursula McGarry, Dr. Graeme McKillop, Dr. Jody Murray, Dr. Anne Oldfield, and Dr. Cecil Rytwinski. The office moves will begin in late February 2012 and continue over a period of at least five weeks. Once each physician’s move is complete, patients will see their physician at 95 Spring Street, not at that physician’s former office.

Originally from Yardley, PA, Brooks moved to Canada in the summer of 2006 and had no idea what the Canadian Improv Games (CIG) was. “Evan Swire introduced me to Mrs. Pasini, coach, who then forced me to go to the improv meeting that Tuesday,” he says. Brooks decided to take the plunge into the world of improv, and without fail, made it onto the A-Team in his Grade 9 year; a feat never accomplished before by one so young. Besides performing and fine tuning his acting skills at rehearsal, improv has been quite the learning curve says Brooks. “Improv has helped me break free of my normal comfort zone and explore the world as a fearless performer,” says Brooks, “Improv has also improved my social skills…I can now talk to anyone regardless of how well I know them.” And these tools that he’s acquired since the start of his improv career do show; adapting to different teams over the years, qualifying for CIG National Finals three times and earning him a spot on the ASH student council. After three national finals and two third place finishes, Matt is going strong. Entering his senior year at All Saints, you can find him at it in the drama room day in and day out, running scenes with the team, and loving every minute of it. According to Brooks, he wouldn’t be the same person he is today without improv. So in 10 years, when you’re scanning through Comedy Central or flip to Saturday Night Live, look for Matthew Brooks.

musical skills. Each year after intense, competitive auditions talented Grade 9 to 12 vocalists are chosen to be part of the group. Many members also excel at playing musical instruments, mostly guitar and piano, although many songs they perform are acapella. “Acapella means we only use vocals in a performance, no instruments. It is challenging but interesting to learn,” says Bluesettes member, Ryan Daly. The dedicated students practice every Monday after school and every Thursday during their lunch. They must attend classes and maintain considerably good grades to be part of Bluesettes. They perform at competitions across Canada.

For some, to leave the country is a rare treat. For Erin Stokes it’s a lifestyle. Stokes is busy working as a teacher at All Saints Catholic High School where she still manages to find time to journey across the world. She has been traveling and moving around for as long as she can remember. With her father being in the military, and her grandparents living in Newfoundland, Stokes found herself moving and traveling around a lot. Stokes had very strong Irish roots and grew up learning and hearing about Ireland, so it seemed fitting that her first Grab Your Backpack and Go was a lone trip to Ireland. She was terrified, as anyone would being six hours away from a familiar face, but she claimed it was an eye opening experience. Traveling changed and influenced her in really positive ways, “I came to appreciate Canada and my family, but I also gained a strong sense of independence.” Around the globe some of her favourite places include: Charleston, South Carolina; the Highlands of Scotland; Sorrento, Italy; and Ireland. She spent a year in Korea and finds herself drawn back to London time after time. Stokes admits to always being fascinated by history and upon discovering her love for travel she also spurred her love for the past. They go hand-in-hand for her. “It all wraps up together,” she says. Her passion certainly shows in her teaching, making her extremely knowledgeable and insightful. Stokes shares her excitement with students willing to participate in school trips abroad. She has been all over Europe with student school trips, where she gets to show people the things that excited her the most when traveling independently. “It is an honour to see the kids’ faces when they see things like the Vimy Ridge Memorial.” Stokes also has the unique job of teaching groups of students abroad during the summer. Learning about Michelangelo’s life can be a whole different experience for students when then can follow his footsteps around Italy and see the environment he lived in. The close-knit group of students come to whole new understandings of texts by immersing themselves in history. There is truly nothing better than a teacher who loves what they do and can make their passion infectious and exciting, and Stokes fits the bill perfectly.

Senators goaltender unmasks his personal style By Rob Brodie Goaltenders, it’s often been said, are a different breed. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the piece of gear that always seems to draw the most attention. The mask every netminder wears isn’t just a necessary piece of facial protection. Rather, it offers up a canvas for personal expression, one that can take many unique forms. “It’s one of the few positions where you can express yourself and who you are,” said Senators goaltender Craig Anderson, who displays a team and personal touch with his masks. “It try to keep it 50-50. One side is team oriented, the other side is what sets me apart.” Anderson turned heads this season by breaking out a heritagethemed mask that pays tribute to Hockey Hall of Fame goaltender Clint Benedict, who backstopped the original Senators to three Stanley Cups in the 1920s. He uses it on nights when the team wears its ‘O’ styled heritage jerseys. But the 30-year-old native of Park Ridge, Ill., doesn’t just let his masks do the talking. His standout play since Christmas has elevated the Senators into the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff chase. Score sat down with Anderson to unmask a few truths, so to speak, about the Senators stopper: Q: Have you ever gone through four masks in a season before? A: One was from last year, so I started out with that. Then I got a new but it broke and we replaced it, and I also have the heritage one. So we have an extra one

character he wants on it. I like to give the artist an open slate. Q: What do you do with your old masks? A: I have almost all of them except the ones that were broken

— those go back to the mask builder. The rest of them, I’ve got in storage somewhere, between my house and my parents’ house and whatnot. Eventually, I’ll have a display case with them all.

This one is feeling really good, the fit and finish is really good and I feel really good in it. Q: Are there any common themes you like to keep on all your masks? A: The common theme right now is the Corvette. It’s America’s sports car and it’s my way of paying tribute to what I like doing. I like playing with cars in the off-season and being an American. The other side has something to do with the team, like the Sens logo. I also have the Corvette Racing logo on the back, with my number and name (Andy). Other than that, it’s pretty much free rein for the

painter. Q: How did you and your mask designer (Detroit-based John Pepe of Pepe Custom Paint) first meet? A: The guy that builds my masks (Bob Dillon of Dillon’s Custom Goalie Mask) is out of Virginia — I met him when I played in the minors with Norfolk. He gave me a custom fit and I’ve been using his masks ever since. The customer service has been top notch and the mask feels really good when I get hit in the head. There’s no ringing, there’s no repercussions from getting hit in the head like I had with my old masks. The painter is his guy that he’s used for a long

time. Q: How do you and your painter collaborate on the final product? A: It’s more or less just one phone conversation. After that, it’s just little messages here and there by e-mail. My theme hasn’t really changed over the last few years, so it’s pretty much free rein for him to put whatever kind of

BOSTON BRUINS Saturday, Feb. 25, 7 p.m., CBC Though their play has been somewhat average of late, the Stanley Cup-champion Bruins are still a formidable force and a top candidate to repeat in June. This is a team loaded with offensive threats, led by the versatile Patrice Bergeron and the bruising Milan Lucic. Young phenom Tyler Seguin is having a breakout season in his second full season in Boston, while Chris Kelly is putting up career numbers and Brad Marchand


remains a perpetual pest who’s also a major impact player. Zdeno Chara is the big man in many ways on the Boston blue line. In Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask, the Bruins boast arguably the best goaltending tandem in the NHL.

Sunday, Feb. 26, 5 p.m., Sportsnet East The Islanders are beginning to make more noise in the Eastern Conference, pushing toward the fringe of playoff contention in recent weeks. It’s no surprise the team’s rise is accompanied by that of John Tavares toward elite player status in the NHL. The former No. 1 overall pick heads up a dangerous attack that also gets top goal production from the likes of Matt Moulson,P.A. Parenteau,


Kyle Okposo and Michael Grabner, a Calder Trophy finalist a year ago. Adding an assist in that area from the back end is Mark Streit. In goal, the Isles rely most heavily on the duo of Evgeni Nabokov and Al Montoya.
