SPRING SELL-OFF! Ministry is ‘biased’ say landfill opponents UP TO

News - A group opposing a new landfill on Carp Road is accusing Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment of dismissing community concerns and having a bias in favour of Waste Management’s proposal for the new dump. An email from a ministry official dated June 2011, says residents “exaggerated”

and “lied” when filing odour complaints about the currently closed landfill on Carp Road. The emails were obtained by the coalition of citizens groups fighting the new landfill through a freedom of information (FOI) request. “During the environmental assessment process we had an uncomfortable feeling about the close relationship between Waste Management and the ministry. We thought it would be worthwhile to file an FOI to

get correspondence between the proponent and the ministry,” said Olivia Nixon, a West Carleton resident and member of the coalition. “We feel the contents of those FOI documents validate our assertions that, yes, there is too close a relationship between Waste Management and the Ministry of the Environment.”

High-tech 50/50 draw a sure thing Tyler Follett

tyler.follett@metroland.com

News – The Ottawa Senators 50/50 draws will be getting a high-tech makeover for next season. The Ottawa Senators Foundation will be part of a pilot program with the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Foundation that Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is launching this fall to improve and modernize 50/50 draws by moving to an electronic system. The announcement at the Canadian Tire Centre March 12 featured members of the Sens Foundation and their supported charities, represen-

tatives from the Ottawa Senators, as well as politicians who made the push for provincial government to allow it. The new system will let vendors sell 50/50 tickets electronically with handheld devices, while displaying real time jackpots allowing fans to track the funds, encouraging them to get involved. “Since the Sens Foundation was formed in 1998 and began selling 50/50 tickets, the revenue from the raffles has been over $13 million,” said Danielle Robinson, president and chief executive of the Sens Foundation. The change is expected to increase 50/50 profits for the Sens Foundation, with dou-

bling or tripling revenue a realistic possibility according to Ottawa - Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi. Electronic 50/50 raffles are already in use in western Canada, with the Vancouver Canucks, Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets all seeing improved results. “The average gross jackpots in those cities has been between $60,000 and $108,000,” said Robinson. Those numbers mean they’ve experienced anywhere from 60% to 100% increase in 50/50 revenue since the change. This is compared to the Senators who this season have averaged between $28,000 and

$33,000, which at one point would have been “amongst the top of the league” according to Robinson. The increased revenues will allow the Sens Foundation to give back even more to its charitable causes like Roger’s House, Sens at School, Sens Rinks, as well as the groups the Foundation supports such as Special Olympics Ontario and Easter Seals Ontario, who were both on hand for the announcement. “In the last 10 years the Sens Foundation has contributed $75 million to charities and local events in our community, which is incredible,” said Naqvi. “Imagine how many more youth and kids we

The Ottawa Senators Foundation president Danielle Robinson addresses the media as she explains who will benefit the most from the increased revenues. can support in our community if we’re making even more?” Naqvi and Ottawa West Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli helped push the provincial government to allow the pilot projects.

“(Yasir and I) did a bit of a tag team at Queen’s Park to facilitate this important day,” said Chiarelli. The new system will be ready to go by the start of the 2014/15 Senators season.

That’s the story one refugee told of his arrival in Canada along with his pregnant wife, and what it’s like to survive while waiting to be acknowledged as a refugee. Ivan, who preferred not to give his real name, said he ar-

rived in Canada last May, landing in Toronto with his wife, and knowing very little about the country. “Canada is a safe country. It’s tolerant, it’s social. Those are the basic things that we knew and they were very important for us,” said Ivan. However, Ivan and his wife were immediately met with scrutiny, as a border guard stopped them with doubts about their visa. Though the very first impression of Canada was “kind of stressful,” overall

for the trials of proving their refugee claims, they needed a way to survive until they were cleared. “We had to find some place to rent, and we looked in both Toronto and Ottawa,” said Ivan. With a room available to rent in Ottawa, Ivan and his wife left Toronto to try and wait out the claim process. But it would take longer than they hoped. Their documents were filed quickly, but there was some problem and Citizenship and Immigration Canada couldn’t issue them their identification documents, he said. “We ran out of money.” Not knowing where to turn, Ivan first heard about Matthew House through the Catholic Immigration Centre. Located in Nepean, Matthew House provides a place for refugees to live and guidance during the refugee claim process. Partnered with Furniture Bank, which is located in Kanata and helps provide refugees with some volunteer work, job skills and furniture for their own homes, Matthew House is one of a few such houses in Canada. But Ivan didn’t know just what he would find when he got there. “Our idea of shelter is a place where homeless people go and drug addicts, alcoholics, such people, and when we came here, it was, ‘Wow, this is a home.’” Matthew House is a Christian organization that draws inspiration from the Matthew

they were excited to have arrived in Canada, he said. Finding themselves in a foreign city, Ivan and his wife first stayed in hotels, knowing that it was too expensive and that they needed somewhere else to stay. Still, finding a lawyer had to be a priority. “Even before coming here, our first goal was to find a lawyer who will assist us with this process (of claiming refugee status),” he said. Though the couple was better prepared than many

Though they were well prepared for the legal process, help from Matthew House was always there, said Ivan. “Any time when we felt like we needed some help, there was somebody here ready to help us.” Ivan and his wife lived at Matthew House for ten weeks, not just waiting to gain refugee status, but meeting other refugees and members of the community as well. “All the people here were in the same position as we were,” said Ivan. “You see that it’s not only you in this, having a hard time.” However, Ivan and his wife soon received refugee status, and are proud their newborn daughter is Canadian. While Ivan and his growing family have moved into an apartment, rebuilding the life they left is still a daunting task. But he said, “We are very happy and we are ready to go through all this.” As for Matthew House, STARTING FROM he said it lived up$43,320 to what he Canada and its people LIMITED TIMEthought OFFER would be like. $ “We wish you (Matthew House) the best of luck and all the best, because we received * only good things from the people there, and from Matthew BI-WEEKLY House.PAYMENT It’s a great example of life here.” ** DELIVERY * 48* DOWN

With space for up to 10 people at a time, Matthew House has helped more than 100 people from dozens of countries since it started in 2010. “Our mandate really is to help a refugee claimant through their claim process,” said Rawson. That means helping claimants get connected with legal aid, finding forms and getting them to appointments, but above all, providing them with a home. “What we try to do is have a community atmosphere and a family atmosphere so that those people can come in and rather than just feel they are sleeping in a bed, they have a place of belonging and refuge.” That was what Ivan and his wife found, he said.

Ministry assesses all complaints objectively: spokesperson Nixon filed an odour complaint in June 2011 a month after the current landfill accepted its last load of trash and was closed. Other complaints had been sent from areas in Carp, Kanata and Stittsville. Greg Davis, an environmental officer with the ministry, sent an email to his colleagues saying he felt there was no odour problem at the site and “misleading information” was being provided. “I feel these few people want the landfill site to smell at these locations to serve their purpose to fight the expansion plans of (Waste Management),” wrote Davis to his colleagues in response to Nixon’s letter. “They have exaggerated the odour complaints and in some cases I would conclude they have lied about the odours.” Nixon said if she filed an odour complaint, there was an odour problem. An email response to Nixon from Steve Burns, assistant director for the eastern region of the ministry, says that Davis’ remarks about there being no odour problems at the site were backed by field assessments, measures taken to mitigate any smells and an ongoing evaluation of public odour complaints. Burns added that he talked to Davis about limiting his comments and observations to facts. “On the matter of being unbiased and objective, I can confirm that Mr. Davis has taken a strong compliance approach against (Waste Management) for off-site odours adversely affecting residents and for other environmental compliance issues at the nowclosed Carp landfill site,” wrote Burns. “I can assure you that the ministry staff are committed to reviewing each and every odour complaint made by all members of the community in an unbiased and objective manner.” A ministry spokesperson responded to questions via email, saying the ministry will continue to answer community concerns.

“The ministry assesses each and every odour complaint in a factual and objective manner. Environmental officers respond to complaints and make observations about potential impacts. Their work is supported by a range of air, groundwater and surface water experts in the ministry,” wrote the ministry. “With respect to comments made by a ministry environmental officer related to odour complaints, the officer has been instructed to limit observations to facts. The ministry will continue to respond to any complaints and to assess the situation on its merits.” Waste Management didn’t return a request for comment. FOI REQUEST MADE BEFORE EA APPROVAL

The coalition submitted the FOI request in June 2013 but received no documents until November that year – two months after the environmental assessment was approved and “long past” the 30-day time limit to respond, said Nixon. “We actually had to ask the Ontario information and privacy commissioner to intervene to force the ministry to hand over the documents,” she said. The ministry said it worked with those who requested the documents “In the case of this FOI request, there was substantial discussions between the ministry and the requestors for many months to scope the requests.  From July to Sept 2013, the ministry worked with the requestors to focus the requests to ensure we were providing them with relevant records,” wrote the ministry in its email response. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said he understands the community’s frustration with the ministry. “The local group are frustrated with the comment they heard from a staff person and I don’t blame them. They care about this community and they’re frustrated with the process,” he said.

“The ministry didn’t even notify the city that they were going to approve the EA. We heard about it through the media … They should have been more respectful.” The Ontario environment ministry caught all stakeholders off guard last September when it approved Waste Management’s proposed expansion to its Carp Road operation. Called the West Carleton Environmental Centre, the landfill will accept 400,000 tonnes of trash a year for 10 years. Other on-site facilities include those for renewable energy, composting, recycling and waste diversion. After about 20 public meetings, many residents’ submissions, the rise of opposition citizen groups, 18 councilbacked recommendations from the city, and a hand-delivered list from Mayor Jim Watson to the environment minister – the province still rejected public sentiment. “It just shows the weakness of Ontario’s environmental assessment process and that it is really tipped in favour of proponents,” said Nixon. “It’s the people of West Carleton, the people of Stittsville, the people of Kanata that will have to live with the consequences, the very negative consequences. “Ten years down the road, people are going to say, ‘How could this have happened?’ people are going to say, ‘How did this get approved?’ And we can look back to now and say flaws into the EA process … The ministry didn’t take into account the community’s comments and concerns.”

“We are working with the community and Waste Management to see if we can incorporate those conditions,” he said. “We’re still in the negotiating phase.” As Waste Management moves through the next stages of the approval process, Nixon hopes more people will get involved. “Hopefully we can leverage this attention to get a broader look at how wrong this decision was, that it wasn’t based on fact, that indeed the evidence that we put forward – to show that the landfill will cause harm to the both the environment and the community – is valid,” she said. “I’m not going to say this is over, but the window is closing.” With files from Derek Dunn

NEXT STEPS

Waste Management still has a number of approvals needed before the expansion is able to move ahead. One of the next steps is to apply to the city for zoning and site plan approval. The city has certain conditions it wants Waste Management to meet, including odour management, property value protection, traffic issues, groundwater monitoring and more, said El-Chantiry.

Honest discussion is required

I

t’s time we took a hard, honest look at our attitudes towards survivors of sexual violence and sexual assault. Canada is built upon a bedrock of laws that define acceptable and unacceptable behaviour and our Criminal Code contains a lengthy section discussing the legal consequences of sexual assault. Unfortunately, the problem isn’t rooted in the lexicon of our legal system – the fault lies in ourselves and the underlying mores of society. Student groups at the University of Ottawa claim a “rape culture” exists on campus, an attitude that excuses, tolerates and even condones sexual assaults. Last month, the university was hit with the news of an alleged sexual assault involving hockey players from the school’s men’s varsity team in Thunder Bay, Ont. The alleged assault took place during the team’s visit to Lakehead University for two games played on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. Thunder Bay police are in the early stages of an investigation. If that wasn’t bad enough, Anne-Marie Roy, the head of the university’s undergraduate student federation was later the victim of a sexually explicit chat on a private Facebook site, which she received from an anonymous email.

Roy brought a copy of the Facebook chat to a meeting of the student union board of administration in February, asking for a condemnation of those who engaged in the chat, which included two board members. Roy was later quoted in the media as saying, “Rape culture is very present on our campuses . . . I think that it’s very shameful to see that there are student leaders who are perpetuating that within their own circles.” Students at the University of Ottawa have formed the independent initiative against rape culture, an organization that is urging an open discussion about attitudes existing on campus. The group is also calling for more support for victims of sexual assaults. On May 1, the family of a Nova Scotia teenager who took her own life after she was allegedly sexually assaulted and bullied both online and at school is holding an event in Kanata to raise money to support survivors of sexual assault. The fundraiser aims to fund cottage retreats for survivors of sexual assault to recover from their traumatic experiences. Such initiatives spark discussion about our attitudes towards survivors of sexual assault. Talking is often the precursor to social change.

When it comes to cities, fun is relative

T

he question of whether or not Ottawa is the town fun forgot has come up again, just when we thought we were rid of Allan Fotheringham. A new documentary film is coming out that ponders the question of how dull Ottawa is or isn’t. It’s something that people who have been here a long time don’t think about much, except when it is raised. Then we defend or attack. The Town That Fun Forgot was Fotheringham’s description, or probably was, back in the early 1980s, and it stuck. Most people’s feelings weren’t hurt, but some were. Most people knew that we did not, in fact, wait for the light to change when crossing a deserted street at three in the morning. Most people knew that there were places in Ottawa where music and laughter could be found. You just had to know where to look for them. Being a place that fun forgot has something to do with being a capital, a place full of politicians, bureaucrats and – yes – journalists. Although London and Paris seemed to have escaped the accusation, Washington does not have a swinging reputation, nor does Canberra, the Swiss make fun of Berne, and don’t even mention Brasilia. Everybody in a capital works hard,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town watches the nightly news and goes to bed early, goes the refrain. Nobody is interested in anything talking about anything except government. In some ways it is pointless to argue that there is more to our city than politics, because it is not politics that makes a city dull. Quite the contrary. What could be more fun right now than to follow the adventures of our sinful senators? What’s the most exciting thing going on in Toronto right now? Right, the mayor. Having just returned from a few days in New Orleans, I am in a funny position to be defending the fun quotient of Ottawa, but it is worth remembering that a lot of the people celebrating on the Big Easy’s streets are from out of town doing what they think the

locals expect of them. It is significant also that New Orleans doesn’t have a winter in the sense that we know it. One consequence is that clubs can be open to the street so that everybody passing by can hear the music and see the folks enjoying themselves inside. In Ottawa, there may be quite a party going on inside, but you’ll never see it through the frosted-over window or hear it through the heavy closed doors. A little more summer would go a long way in this town, as you can learn for yourself by walking through the ByWard Market on a Friday night in June. And by the way, that’s not always a pretty sight. Of course, there’s no denying that New Orleans showcases its musicians while Ottawa mostly hides its. But it shouldn’t be necessary to point out that there is more to a city than what it shows its tourists. Visitors see the airport, the downtown, the hotels and restaurants, the clubs. There is more to a city’s life than that, but the visitor doesn’t see it. Fun doesn’t have to be people shouting in the streets. It can be people enjoying themselves in each other’s homes, playing pickup hockey or eating at the not-so-trendy place around the corner. It is interesting that at the same time The

City That Fun Forgot reappeared, a national magazine ranked Ottawa the second-best place to live among large Canadian cities. MoneySense magazine considered such things as unemployment, health care and taxes in making its selection. So there’s a broader definition of fun. It includes not getting attacked by extreme weather or muggers or corrupt politicians. It can be the absence of extreme poverty on the streets. For the most part, that would describe our lives here. It may not be your idea of fun, but it’s a start.

Smartphones – what a turn off BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse – I try to hide it away in a drawer. This little trick works well. In fact, I went 3.5 hours the other evening when my in-laws were over without even thinking about my smartphone! (As British author Allan Carr says in his famous quit smoking book, only a heroin addict would brag about going a week without; otherwise, why mention it?) And of course, the second my in-laws were out of the driveway I ran to find my smartphone. I had to check the latest in a slew of funny cat posts on Facebook and the junk emails from travel websites. I got into a text conversation with a long distance friend who had a baby recently. And simultaneously Google Talked with my dad. Before I knew it, 45 minutes had gone by, my husband had put

the children to bed – children who had likely been whining for my attention, but I was too absorbed in my “communications” to notice. Like I said, I’m not the worst kind of addict – I don’t typically get my phone out at restaurants or dinner parties, for example. But something happened the other day that made me realize it’s time to put a moratorium on smartphone use in certain situations.

the happiness of those around me as well. “Why are we talking about Russia and Ukraine, mom, when we just came from a great scavenger hunt?” Those words from my seven-year-old. Before smartphones, the information about my friends and family may or may not have been shared with me. If it was, it would most likely be in a phone call or face-to-face, where I could completely engage – not while I was enjoying a rare and complete family outing to the sugar bush. So I’ve decided to eliminate most notifications I receive. I’ve vowed to become one of those people who doesn’t answer text messages instantly. I’ve decided to power down when I’m out in the woods. Because frankly, all that dinging and news, distracting me from living in the moment – it makes smartphones quite the turn off.

I’m not the worst kind of addict – I don’t typically get my phone out at restaurants or dinner parties, for example. But something happened the other day that made me realize it’s time to put a moratorium on smartphone use in certain situations.

On the way home, I was sitting in the back

ast spring I got my first smartphone. I swore to my husband and family that I wouldn’t become “one of those people.” You know, the ones that are incessantly checking indicators every five seconds; the ones that pull out phones in the middle of decent conversations based on innuendo and mistruths so they can Google the answers; the ones who let their kids watch YouTube videos by Flo Rida; and dare I say it, the ones that let their toddlers swipe through photos in the doctor’s office waiting room? It’s been almost a year now and I’m dangerously close to becoming a smartphone addict. They say the first step toward overcoming addiction is accepting that it actually exists. I’m not the worst of the worst.I recognize I check my phone more often when it’s in a central location, like in the middle of the kitchen counter or, let’s say, the dinner table. So when we have company – despite using my smartphone as a camera most days

seat, wondering how to keep my inattentive brain occupied for 45 minutes, when I took my smartphone from its hiding place. I had several text messages, so I began to read them. There was a notification that a young relative was in hospital; another that informed me of a dire prognosis for another loved one; and a new blog by a friend who’s undergoing cancer treatment. I read them all and answered what I could. I got into some deep and dark conversations. All around me, the children and grandparents were discussing the glorious day we’d had in the

Kanata pathways need plowing To the editor:

Re: Councillor wants cost of clearing all snow from sidewalks, Feb. 27, KKS. I read Laura Mueller’s article about plowing sidewalks with great interest. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais states that he would like to expand plowing services provided by the city to provide a higher level of service than merely plowing surfaces to pack snow into a walkable surface. The Beaverbrook neighbourhood of Kanata has a system of pathways, some of which are no longer “winter maintained�. I do not know how or when it was decided to stop plowing all these pathways but I am quite sure the community was not informed and certainly didn’t have any input into this. Getting around on foot has been getting more and more difficult each year as fewer pathways are plowed. This winter has been especially bad as the approaches to schools that were previously maintained no longer are. Students attending The Earl of March Secondary School who make their way to school via The

Parkway or along Leacock Drive must walk along these two narrow, slippery, unlit streets. Traffic along these streets is thick in the morning and afternoon as many parents drive their children to and from school. Driving is by far the safest way to get around this area. I have also seen people trying to navigate these routes on motorized scooters and others pushing strollers. Pedestrians are squeezed to the snow banks as cars moving in both directions try to drive past. It’s dangerous and it’s a shame. It would be wonderful if all our pathways had even the most basic level of service and were plowed at all, even if just packed into a walkable surface. How about if we start with them before we “scrape clean� the already plowed sidewalks for those lucky enough to have them? Dinah Sloan Beaverbrook

In that document you indicate your concern for seniors with comforting statements like, “We are delivering tax savings and choice for Canadian seniors.� and “Canadian seniors have worked hard to prepare for their retirement.� Yet that while those very words were being written, your government was evidently planning to add to our costs by charging public service retirees more for their health care insurance. I hope your constituents can take you at your word and that you will be acting on behalf of those of us who will be negatively affected by this unilateral decision. At the very least I expect you will vote against any bill that unfairly, and perhaps illegally, takes away a benefit that we were promised while we were working as public servants, trying to make this country a better one for all Canadians. Please let us know what specific action you will be taking here for us. Jake Cole Kanata

Using shrubs effectively Community - With spring finally around the corner, it’s time to start planning for changes to your yard and gardens. Shrubs can play an active role in your landscaping requirements, whether they are used to add beauty with interesting foliage or flowers, or to provide privacy or hide something unsightly. The Kanata-March Horticultural Society welcomes Dave Dunn from the Rideau Woodland Ramble who will present “Shrubs – Diversity

and Drama in the Garden” on Tuesday, April 1. Dunn will discuss how shrubs can be used in the design of a garden to play the role of “bones” or structure and backdrop, as well as add interest, colour and texture. Coping with tight spaces and urban garden scale will also be a consideration covered in the talk. The meeting runs from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Old Town Hall, 821 March Rd.

Reasons to think about summer now Lifestyle - While it may seem like spring has just sprung, summer will be here before you know it. According to the education experts at Oxford Learning, that means that it’s time to start thinking about summer learning plans. “Summer learning is a critical – and often overlooked – part of students’ learning. By planning for summer learning now, parents will help their children avoid the summer learning brain drain,” says Nick Whitehead, founder and CEO of Oxford Learning.

He offers these five reasons why planning for summer learning this spring is so important: 1. Summer is going to be here soon. Spring may have just begun, but before long, students will be studying for exams and handing in their final term projects, which means that it’s not too early to think about what kids are going to be doing this summer. 2. Summer can undo what children are learning right now. Without maintaining learning momentum and study skills over the summer

break, students easily forget everything they’re working hard to learn right now, which means that next year, students need to repeat the same workbooks and materials they are learning right now. 3. Summer can have an impact on how children learn next year. After a summer off, it can take kids up to three months to get back into the swing of learning. That represents a huge amount of wasted learning opportunities, and it means that students are not up to their potential from as early as the

LSinda J amieson chool of Dance

first day back to class. 4. Kids want to learn in the summer. Research in summer learning studies shows that 56 per cent of students want to be involved in a summer program that helps them keep up with summer schoolwork or prepare for the next grade. 5. Summer programs fill up fast. Most programs are already accepting applications and taking reservations for summer enrolment. Schools, camps, and supplemental tutoring facilities such as Oxford Learning are no exception. – www.newscanada.com

Choosing the right camp Lifestyle - Are you in the middle of planning your children’s stay at a summer camp? Before making your choice, it’s important to ask yourself a few questions. Summer camps, day camps, nature classes and specialized camps are just some of the options open to you and your children. All you have to do is find a camp that will answer their needs and suit your budget. The length of stay, the quality of the infrastructure and the food, safety, programs offered, the training that the staff receives and the costs of registering will influence your

choice. If your children want to spend one or more weeks in different surroundings, a summer camp would be ideal. Outdoor activities, hiking trips, excursions, cultural outings and meeting new friends will give them a complete change of scene. Nights spent in a dormitory or in a tent will be another unique experience. Perhaps your children prefer to have fun with friends during the day and come home in the evening. If so, a summer spent at a day camp would be just the thing. They can join in organized games, go on supervised visits to tourist attractions and

spend afternoons at the pool. The duration of this type of camp can range from one to several weeks. A specialized camp would give your children the opportunity of perfecting their knowledge in a subject which interests them. Sports, culture and the sciences are among the most popular ones. For a shorter stay, nature classes offer outdoor programs which are both recreational and educational. Activities are usually spread over a period of one or two days and include nature studies, climbing, water sports and wilderness survival skills.

Specialized camps offer unforgettable experiences

SUBMITTED

The sciences, music and sports are popular themes in specialized summer camps.

Lifestyle - Does your child love the visual arts or maybe expeditions into the wilderness? Is he a sports fanatic? Specialized summer camps will give him the chance to discover a whole new world, broaden his knowledge and develop his talents. Specialized camps offer activities for all ages and all tastes. For a week or more, depending on the organization, young people can participate in exciting programs involving them in enriching activities within a stimulating and friendly envi-

ronment. Whether it involves excursions into the wilderness, an immersion course in a foreign language, a science or music camp, team sports or outdoor activities, there’s something to suit everyone. Along with these specialized activities, summer camps also offer events that involve all the campers, outings and cultural visits. The staff also plans alternative activities just in case Mother Nature doesn’t co-operate. Staffed by professionals and

students, specialized camps can also offer young people the opportunity to develop abilities in areas in which they could one day build a career. These young people acquire a broader knowledge and understanding of many different subjects. Their camp experience is something they will never forget. Reservations have to be made early in the year as these specialized summer camps are very popular and the number of places often limited. So now is the time to make your choice.

Ask the right questions before FRENCH SUMMER CAMP! registering for camp Children from SK to Gr4

Matt Barr

Lifestyle - Here is a list of questions to ask any camp director before you register. Pick and choose the ones that are relevant to you and your child. • Who do you hire as counsellors? Are they experienced? How old are they? Are they certified in CPR and first aid? Have they undergone a criminal record check? • What are your hours of operation and for pre- and postcamp care? Is there an additional cost for extended hours? • What is the ratio of campers to counsellors? Ratios of 8:1 are common. A ratio of 10:1 is probably the most you want. • Are snacks or a lunch pro-

W NOEN! OP

vided? Is the lunch program optional or mandatory? • What do you do on rainy days? Are your facilities airconditioned? • Do the children swim every day? What are your rules for supervision at the pool? Is there a wading pool for young campers? • What is included in the price of camp? Do you take any field trips? Do you offer any discounts for multiple registration, multiple weeks? • Can you provide a list of references or testimonials? Word of mouth is the best reference. Ask around and find out where other parents are sending their children. • How are different age

groups divided? Are boys and girls divided? Can my child be in the same group as his/her friend? • What if my child doesn’t like the camp? Do you offer a guarantee? What is your cancellation policy? • Where can I find more information about your camp? Do you have a website? Can I register online?

Camp Guide 2014

Summer camps offer something for everyone cause it’s one where they still have some places left. It is essential to take into account the interests of your children in order for them to have an enjoyable and enriching experience. There are conventional camps, which offer a wide range of outdoor activities and group games. Other camps offer special interest activities, such as specific sports, visual arts, music, cooking, or even the sciences, including astronomy. The length of stay can also vary. Some parents prefer to stick with day camps or short stays so their children won’t get homesick. Others opt to send

their children for a week or more to develop their independence. Children living with a physical or mental disability can also benefit greatly from a stay at a summer camp. Some camps are specifically adapted to meet such needs and have qualified personnel trained to care for them 24 hours a day. Whatever type of camp a family is looking for, it is always advisable to visit it first or speak with camp staff on the phone – this will help you be sure their priority is the wellbeing of the children and their focus suits the needs and interests of your children.

It’s important to choose a summer camp that is adapted to a child’s interests.

Learn to cook at camp Lifestyle - If your children would like to try camp this summer, they’ll have lots to choose from, with camp themes ranging from traditional nature-based activities to specialized ones. If learning something new and unusual appeals to them, they can choose a camp that matches their interests. Cooking camp, for example, is a great option for children interested in the culinary arts. HEALTH

There are so many good reasons for learning to cook.

At this type of camp, your children will learn to appreciate one of the great pleasures of life while learning to eat healthily. Cooking a real meal teaches a child to follow a balanced diet that contains less fat, salt, and sugar than processed foods. AUTONOMY

Going to cooking camp also helps children develop autonomy, as they discover new foods and different cooking techniques. They also learn to use utensils safely and follow

good food handling practices, such as personal hygiene and food storage. RECIPES

Every camp tackles a variety of culinary themes. There might be lessons on day-today cooking; French, Italian, or Asian cuisines; pastry making; and other specialties. The children prepare simple recipes, but they also discover some famous chefs’ secrets. TASTING

In addition, many cooking

Cooking camp benefits the whole family in more ways than one. camps offer a mouth-watering formula for food-loving parents; children get to take

According to park officials, campgrounds at popular provincial parks like Sandbanks, Killbear and Pinery fill up quickly for summer holiday weekends.

Staff offer suggestions for getting a campsite in popular parks or for alternate locations with availability in this Park Blog post: www. parkreports.com/parksblog/ ?p=3265. To book an Ontario Parks campsite, visit reservations at www.ontarioparks.com. PDF copies of the new 2014 Parks Guide can be downloaded from the website.

facilities, services and activities and can pinpoint parks close to urban centres or parks with equipment rentals or backcountry experiences. • Ontario Parks’ social media sites are excellent sources for trip planning too. Park photos, including many of lesser-known parks, are on Pinterest. • Ontario Parks’ ofďŹ cial Facebook and Twitter sites provide the latest news. • New videos will be posted regularly on the Ontario Parks youtube channel www.youtube.com/ theOntarioParks.

Summer options for budding horseback riders Lifestyle - Are you looking for something unique for your children to do this summer? An outdoors activity, where they’ll get lots of fresh air and exercise but will also feel as if they’re on vacation? What you need is an equestrian camp. Your children are sure to love riding camp, whether they’re beginner or expert riders. Generally speaking, these camps are accessible to children of all levels of skill and experience. Children are assessed and placed into small groups that take into account riding ability

and age, and mandatory riding helmets help assure the safety of all campers, no matter how experienced they are. VARIED ACTIVITIES

At riding camp, some or all of the following activities will keep your children busy throughout the day: riding lessons, equestrian techniques, learning to care for and prepare horses, games, trail rides, and complementary outdoor activities. Some establishments even organize an equestrian show at the end of the camp. An introduction to riding

includes a bit of theoretical knowledge (anatomy, colours and markings, disciplines, shoeing, reproduction, and breeds) as well as riding basics and care (diet, vital signs, bandages, veterinary care, feeding, and grooming). At riding camp, children can learn more about the behaviour of horses, how to groom them, clean their shoes, saddle them, and ride them while developing their sense of balance. Best of all, children develop a meaningful partnership with the horse, a relationship that builds self-esteem and determination.

Camp Guide 2014 Dovercourt: Bringing the World to Summer Camp Day camp offers a summer It’s no surprise that an endless number of studies have shown that children that aďż˝end a well organized and well run camp program demonstrate marked improvements in academics and social skills. For this and many other reasons, parents review and research local oerings to ďŹ nd the best ďŹ t for their families. Oďż˝en they have to make compromises because one facility never seems to provide everything they’re looking for. Some centres have great physical acďż˝viďż˝es but few arts programs. Others have a beďż˝er variety but are oďż˝en a considerable distance away and have restricďż˝ve hours. The team at Dovercourt Recreaďż˝on Centre (at 411 Dovercourt Avenue in Oďż˝awa’s Near-West) has taken the ďż˝me over the years to ďŹ nd out exactly what their clients need and want, and the results have launched Dovercourt to the top of their class.

Academy gives young rookies an exciďż˝ng introducďż˝on into the world of police and ďŹ re service as well as paramedics. In the Adventure Academy it’s all about the outdoors with programs in hiking, nature, survival, and climbing. On the science side there’s nothing geeky about sessions in photography, roboďż˝cs, television producďż˝on, or eco-zoo.

Dovercourt opened in 1987 thanks to the hard work of countless volunteers and the Dovercourt Recreaďż˝on Associaďż˝on. They are part of the City of Oďż˝awa’s recreaďż˝on program but maintain the exibility to tailor their programs to ďŹ t the needs of their parďż˝cipants. They welcome children of all ages and interests and all of their program sta are trained and cerďż˝ďŹ ed in High-FiveÂŽ: Healthy Child Development (to learn more visit www.highďŹ ve.org), standard ďŹ rst-aid, and CPR. In fact, Dovercourt is Eastern Ontario’s only High-FiveÂŽ accredited organizaďż˝on. And of course all of Dovercourt sta members have completed a police record check.

Dovercourt services so much more than their local Westboro area. Being well connected to major transportaďż˝on and transit corridors means commuďż˝ng parents can drop their children o on the way to work and pick them up on the way home. But be warned, when parents ďŹ nd out how much fun their kids have at Dovercourt and how much it has to oer adults, some have been tempted to play hooky from work to reward themselves. Many commuters from outside the Oďż˝awa/Gaďż˝neau region ďŹ nd Dovercourt more convenient than their own home neighbourhood faciliďż˝es. On site, Dovercourt has a great variety of spaces and resources including an amazing swimming pool.

With Dovercourt it’s not really fair to label their summer programs with the ‘day-camp’ tag. They truly have the feel and experience of a tradiďż˝onal overnight camp. It starts with the sta and counselors. Almost all of them were Dovercourt campers themselves once and they remember how to insďż˝ll an atmosphere of fun and adventure into every event. They ensure every child gets involved, no one is leďż˝ on the sidelines and the result is a sense of belonging that makes memories to last a lifeďż˝me.

To discover all Dovercourt has to oer your family log onto www.dovercourt.org today. Their website has a complete lis�ng of upto-date program guides, including a parent’s guide that takes all the guesswork out of what’s required and what’s included. Online registra�on is quick and easy and friendly knowledgeable team leaders are available at 613-798-8950 to answer any ques�ons. Why se�le for the ordinary when a world of adventure is wai�ng?

Lifestyle - Even though we’re just at the beginning of spring, it’s already time to think about the children’s long summer holidays. Among the myriad possibilities available, day camps organized by municipalities or private organizations are very popular choices. As soon as the school year finishes, the children can get together for a program packed with activities. Lasting from five days to six or seven weeks, the day camp allows participants to enjoy

Kanata Lakes siblings rise to youth cycling fame brandon.gillet@metroland.com

Sports- Connor and Nia Byway are quickly emerging as a dominant sibling-pair on the youth cycling circuit. Nia, 13, placed first in four of five events, clinching the omnium at the Youth Challenge Championships in London Ont. on Feb 22. Connor, 16, likewise saw success this past summer, winning his second consecutive national championship making the Kanata Lakes teens the ones to watch in youth cycling. As well as winning overall in the girls under-15 category, Nia also set three new track records, surpassing even the boys her age in two of five events. “It felt great, and that all the

training paid off,� said Nia. Her coach Don Moxley gave her a training plan that would set a different type of workout for each day focusing on endurance and weight training. “I got sick of it because I’m just in the basement working out,� Nia said. Nia also placed first at the Ottawa Bicycle Girls Club Grand Prix on Jul 13, 2013, which was one of seven races in a row that she won this past summer in Ontario and Quebec. She currently competes in provincial youth cups as riders are generally not accepted to compete at the national level until they reach the cadet level (under 17). Nevertheless, Nia will try to make the national team to compete in the Tour de Releve

international in Rimouski, Que. and will continue to compete in youth cups across Ontario and Quebec. John Byway, Nia’s father, thinks there could be a good chance she will make the national team. “She is very fast and a good hill climber, which is a major factor for the race in Rimouski,� he said. Brother Connor is no stranger to the difficulties of such aspirations. The first year racing the tour in Rimouski, he placed 47 th overall. “I really learned how much training you had to put in to compete at the top level,� he said. The realization paid off for Connor as he won the tour the following year, which is another feat on its own as he was using Nia’s bike after his was damaged in a crash. More prominently, he won the Canadian track cycling championship in 2012 and 2013 in Dieppe, N.B. Connor just completed a two-week elite training road camp in California. The camp taught life lessons like cooking and cleaning after oneself, for athletes travelling to international competition, as well as physical training. The riders also had a slew of professionals in nutrition, pedalling power, and physical training to prepare them for riding with a national team. He is looking forward to trying out for the junior national track team in a few weeks in Los Angeles. If he makes the team he will compete in the Pan American Junior Championship in Veracruz, Mexico. in June and the Junior Track World Championship in Seoul, Korea. in August.

The discipline and intense training is paying off for the Byway siblings as they continue to advance in the levels of competition. Conner could

even be looking at an Olympic run in the 2020 Summer Games. “They’re amazing kids, they work hard at school and

their sport,� said mom Erika. “They’re so disciplined it amazes me that they spend hours training, and we don’t have to remind them.�

Sports - Young hockey players will have a chance to hone their skills this spring with a hometown hero. Former National Hockey League player Todd White has developed his own camp in partnership with the Bell Sensplex facilities. The White Hot Hockey Camp will be held at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata and Richcraft Sensplex in Gloucester with 10-week spring and sixweek summer sessions planned, as part of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Programs lineup. The camp is for competitive players looking to continue developing their game at a high level. “I try and mix in a lot of different skill work, whether it be individual skating, puck handling, passing and shooting, along with tactics like angling and defensive and offensive two-on-ones,� said White. “There’s no team play, it’s skill-based development, I’m just trying to help the kids become better hockey players and allow the coaches to teach the team stuff they want.� Before the summer and spring

hockey career at Clarkson University, during which he was nominated for the Hobey Baker Award, given to the best college player in the United States, White turned professional, with a successful career of nearly 1,000 games ahead. White had stints with the Chicago Blackhawks, Philadelphia Flyers, Minnesota Wild, Atlanta Thrashers, New York Rangers and his hometown Ottawa Senators, as well as Sodertalje SK, an elite team in Sweden during the 2004-05 NHL lockout. He is happy to pass on his experience and use it to his advantage when preparing his programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to pass on a lot of the stuff I learned from my time playing to kids as they move forward to better help them enjoy the game,â&#x20AC;? said White. White used his experience as a player preparing for the upcoming season in the summer when designing the camp schedule. The 10-week spring session will be held once a week. The six-week summer session will start off once a week for the first two weeks, before ramping up to twice weekly for the last four weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I played in the NHL I used to always prepare for my season by slowly ramping up to get ready for training camp,â&#x20AC;? said White. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to do one session a week for the first two weeks, then twice a week for the final four weeks to prepare kids for their hockey tryouts, rather than a one-week crash course.â&#x20AC;? Registration for the spring sessions is currently underway at sensplex.ca.

Sports - The nation’s capital will host the 2015 Special Olympics Provincial Floor Hockey Championships at Carleton University in little more than a year.

Proper footwear for weekend warriors Sports - Being tied to a desk all day combined with overdoing sports activities on the weekend has landed many a participant on the sidelines. Now experts say those who play a hard game of sports once a week, but are inactive the other six days, are even more at fault for the injuries that plague them. “In addition to failing to train sufficiently for the sports they participate in, many weekend warriors also fail to select the proper footwear,” says Ryan Robinson, a Canadian Certified Pedorthist and president of the Pedorthic Association of Canada. “Not wearing the correct footwear can cause problems ranging from minor discomfort such as blisters, corns and calluses to more serious conditions including repetitive stress injuries to the joints and muscles.” Robinson cautions that one pair of running shoes may not serve for all sports. Joggers should wear running shoes which are specifically designed to absorb shock and propel them forward. However, running shoes are not appropriate for a game of basketball, which requires footwear to withstand side to side motions to protect against injury. Choosing footwear appropriate to your sport reduces the risks of injury and helps you play smart. As with all footwear, athletic shoes must fit properly. Shoes that are too long, too short or too wide can affect the function of the foot. Whether you are a weekend warrior or a recreational athlete, get your athletic footwear professionally fitted by foot expert, such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist. This simple step will help keep you off the sidelines and in the game. More information on reducing sports-related foot injuries can be found online at www.pedorthic.ca/ injury-prevention www.newscanada.com

welcome over 400 athletes from across Ontario to play floor hockey in our great city,” said Ottawa police Chief, Charles Bordeleau. According to OSEG president Jeff Hunt, the OHL and Ottawa 67’s have been associated with the event for many years. “It’s a natural fit for us,” said Hunt. “I’m looking forward to being a part of it.” Law enforcement agencies

across Ontario have been involved with Special Olympic Games since 1996 when Cornwall police hosted the provincial spring games. Initiatives like the Law Enforcement Torch Run - now in its 27th year - bring awareness and understanding to the Special Olympic movement. In 2013, law enforcement agencies across Ontario raised $1.5 million through the Torch Run for Special Olympics Ontario.

Ottawa-born Olympic figure skater ends career after Sochi Adam Kveton

adam.kveton@metroland.com

Sports - Italian figure skater and Ottawa native Paul Bonifacio Parkinson has decided to leave the world of international figure skating after competing at the Sochi Winter Olympics. The move comes after a less-than-stellar performance at the figure skater’s first Olympic competition, with several errors in his program. However, Bonifacio Parkinson said he achieved everything he set out to and is excited to return to Canada and pursue a degree at the University of Toronto. “For me it is very exciting as I’m really looking forward to taking the next step in my life,” he said. Bonifacio Parkinson was born in Canada and grew up in Barrhaven where his love of figure skating started. Living in Ottawa, Bonifacio Parkinson said he wanted to learn

to skate so he could skate on the canal. After excelling through CanSkate, Bonifacio Parkinson competed with the Nepean Skating Club, going to national championships at age 12. After he won silver at the Canadian juniors in 2009, he decided to compete for Italy as he holds dual citizenship through his mother’s side of the family. The idea was to get more international exposure, as the Italian team attends more European events. “When we first thought of it, we didn’t think I was necessarily ready for that stage, but after I medalled at the Canadian Championships in junior, we thought that was a good time to make the switch over knowing that I could handle that pressure at nationals,” he said. Though it was difficult to leave his friends and teammates, Bonifacio Parkinson said he still felt support from

“I was just out there trying to enjoy every moment of it.” PAUL BONIFACIO PARKINSON

“Nothing can really prepare you for the pressure that you feel at the Olympics,” said Bonifacio Parkinson. The pressure showed in Bonifacio Parkinson’s skating, with several falls during competition. However, it was while competing in his second event at Sochi that he hit his stride. During the men’s free skate for the team competition, Bonifacio Parkinson topped his best score that season with a score of 121.23, earning him fifth place with Russian veteran Evgeny Plyushchenko in first with 168.20. “That performance I had the most fun,” said Bonifacio Parkinson. “I was just out there trying to enjoy every moment of it, and the feeling I had when I finished that long program was just, it’s indescribable.” Despite the errors, Bonifacio Parkinson said his Olympic experience was great, and that he “enjoyed every second that I was out there competing.” Nonetheless, after returning to his training base in Colorado to take a pause after

INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE/SUBMITTED

Paul Bonifacio Parkinson competes at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics for Italy in early February. Sochi, Bonifacio Parkinson was considering his acceptance to the University of Toronto’s kinesiology program. Now, he said starting his degree at U of T is almost assured, as he is just waiting on student loans and some paperwork to be finalized. Though Bonifacio Parkinson said he is still planning on competing for the university’s varsity team, he leaves the world of international figure skating with very few regrets.

“I have achieved everything I set out to do when I started skating,” he said. Though the competition is over, he won’t be leaving behind his Olympic experience. The most memorable part for him was the end of every skate, he said. “Each time I competed, it was the amount of applause and support I got from the audience. I will never forget the feeling I had when I was done competing each time.”

Though he was skating for Italy, Bonifacio Parkinson said he still felt support from home. “Even though I’m not representing Canada, they are still supporting me as I am: as one of their own,” he said. “It’s a great feeling knowing that these people are going to be behind me, supporting me regardless of what happens in my future and that they are always going to be there to support me.”

Ottawa & Area - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away

Little league looks for big help as season draws near tyler.follett@metroland.com

Sports - The Kanata Little League Baseball Association is looking for anyone in the community who can help out as the new season approaches. “We take great pride in being entirely volunteer driven, so we could always use more helping hands for anyone interested in joining our team,”

said Lynette Weatherall, registrar of the association. Coaches, umpires, schedulers, and even equipment managers are needed to ensure children participating get the most out of their baseball experience. “We do a lot of different things, but my favorite is either helping run the tryouts for the older kids or umpiring the younger ones,” said Josh Wegman, who has

volunteered in the past for his high school community service hours. “As far as volunteering goes, I don’t think there are many better ways to do it.” New this season for the association is an intermediate league that will play throughout the spring season, combining the major and junior levels (11-13 year olds). Games at this level will be played after those scheduled

Spring tryouts will be held before teams are formed, to judge players’ skill level. Registration for the spring season is now underway. It runs from May to June, while the summer season from July to August. Registration fees vary by age group from: • T-ball (4-6 year olds) $160 • Rookie (7-8 year olds)

Paralympians return with successful Sochi experience tyler.follett@metroland.com

Sports – The Paralympics are getting better and better for cross-country skier Margarita Gorbounova. Family and friends packed the Ottawa International Airport on March 17 to celebrate the first of the city’s returning athletes. The Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi, which were her second after competing at Vancouver in 2010, featured highlights on and off the course for Gorbounova, in-

cluding a fourth place finish in the 15K cross-country skiing. The finish easily bested her previous seventh place finish in Vancouver, and was part of what made the Sochi games stand out. “The big difference between the two games was the media coverage, there was an amazing amount of coverage compared to Vancouver,” said Gorbounova, who also collected a seventh place finish in the 6K biathlon. “It felt like these were the Olympic games, whereas in Vancouver there was definitely something

Margarita Gorbounova is welcomed by Rick Baker, Director of the Canadian Paralympic Committee, upon her return from Sochi. Family, friends and fans will be meeting athletes at airports across the country as they return this week.

to be desired for coverage.” The experience in 2010 gave Gorbounova a better idea of what to do and how to prepare for Sochi, which she felt played a big difference. “Having been to the games before, it wasn’t a new experience to me which meant I was much better prepared than in Vancouver,” she said. Gorbounova was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, moving to Canada in 1999 with her family, living in Toronto for six years before moving to Ottawa. Her Russian roots made the adjustment a little easier for herself, while speaking in her native tongue made her one of the most popular athletes at the games. “It was really fun to be back there because I spoke Russian so people loved me, they were always so excited when they found out,” said Gorbounova with a smile. Born with cataracts, Gorbounova has almost complete vision impairment, but paraNordic skiing is in her blood. Her mother Olga Nazarenko won a gold medal for Russia at the 1992 Paralympic Games in the discipline, with her father Mikhail Gorbounov an equally skilled middle distance and European Championship-winning marathon runner. Her parents

are also visually impaired, as well as the ones responsible for introducing her to paraNordic skiing. For Gorbounova, the highlight of the games may have been the spectacle. “The opening and closing ceremonies both were amazing, they really did such an

she said. Gorbounova will now return to her job as a FrenchEnglish translator for the federal government, boosted by the hero’s welcome received at the airport. “It’s amazing actually, I didn’t expect it, but it’s just awesome.”

Calabogie Ski Racing Club

Sports - The past couple of weekends have been the perfect storm of race action for Calabogie Ski Racing Club. The U12 racers competed in the kombi at Edelweiss, in Wakefield, Que. while the U14s raced at Mont Ste. Marie, in Lac-Sainte-Marie, Que. and the U16s tackled slalom at Camp Fortune, in Chelsea, Que. on Feb. 22. This was followed up by the U14s racing at Mount StLouis Moonstone near Bar-

rie, Ont. for the U14 Alpine Provincials as part of the Ontario Winter Games Feb. 28 to March 2. Not to be outdone, the U10s travelled to Vorlage in Wakefield, Que. on March 1 for a kombi. All of these races capped off a busy season, as the athletes prepare to compete in the season championships. In the U10 kombi, Wyatt Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew) was once again undefeated. Noah Matthews (Calabogie) turned in a couple of good runs

all hands on

to come seventh, and Thys Blok (White Lake) pulled off his season’s best with his first Top 10 result – eighth. Riley Cotter (Ottawa) powered his way to 23rd. Louise Stonham (Arnprior) finished seventh, and Tori Cotter (Ottawa) was just outside, in 13th place. Nicole Duff (Pembroke) finished in 21st place. The U12 kombi turned into a stars-on-ice performance – with plenty of thrills and spills. Sam Alexander (Carp) knifed through the ice for vic-

tory. Wesley Matthews (Calabogie) slid out on the sheer course but hung on and managed to finish 18th despite two falls. Aidan Maclean (Manotick) and Ryan Geddie (Kanata) also hung in there, finishing 20th and 26th, as did Tess Schreider (Kingston) in 24th. But the slippery course claimed James Gaffney (Deep River), Carson Lefebvre (Calabogie), Jeremy Van Grunsven (Odessa), and Luke Hansen (Renfrew) as its victims. The U14s capped off their

Custodian publishes life’s-worth of poems R0012599237-0320

Teaching abroad provides inspiration for Kanata man Adam Kveton

adam.kveton@metroland.com

Community - A Kanata man is putting his soul out into the world with a self-published book of poems he’s penned across Canada and abroad. The book, entitled Two Trees, was published this January, and focuses on sharing common hardships to dispel loneliness as one of its major themes, explained poet David Leduc.

The book is a project that has taken decades to come together, he said, as Leduc “caught the muse” of poetry while in high school. Though not a prolific writer, poetry has been a passion for Leduc since then, composing poems while studying English literature at the University of Ottawa, during years working in radio in Kenora, Brandon Man., and Grande Prairie, Alta., and throughout his work abroad. After leaving radio, Leduc put his degree to work, and traveled to Nigeria to teach English for two years. His experiences in Nigeria and Malaysia form some of the inspiration for his work. See POETRY, page 35

‘Poetry depends upon empathy’: Leduc Continued from page 34

“It was pretty tough in Nigeria,” said Leduc. “I lived in the north part of the country, which is below the Sahara desert, so water and fresh food were always a problem, especially water sometimes.” However, the difficulties inherent in the job didn’t seem to dissuade him from applying for another teaching contract two years later, this time in Malaysia for five years. “I went from the desert to the rainforest,” he said. However, it was getting used to Canada again that proved more difficult, said Leduc. “The culture shock coming home hit me harder than it did going over there,” he said. “Being seven years overseas and coming home, things change so fast here, whereas overseas it’s a much slower pace of life. So I had a hard time readjusting.” Eventually, Leduc settled into custodial work, finding a job as a superintendant at an apartment building in Kanata.

Through all that time, poetry was a constant, if not omnipresent passion. Now, having just passed his 60th birthday, Leduc realized he had written enough poems to make a book.

We all live in our own little loneliness ... David Leduc

“I thought, ‘well, I better get it out before I’m gone or else it will be lost to history.’” Leduc’s poems are a collection of short haikus, as well as narratives, sonnets, ballads and many others. “A lot of my poems deal with the dichotomies and the contradictions and the confusions that we live through in our lives,” he said. Though some of these are inspired by his unique experiences abroad and what it was like coming back to Canada, much of his poetry is about sharing experiences that others

relate to. But Leduc goes beyond simply pointing these instances of “dichotomies, contradictions and confusions.” Ultimately, his poetry is about showing people they are not alone. “Poetry depends upon empathy,” explained Leduc. “When you show or express empathy to somebody, then they can realize that they are not alone. “We all live in our own little loneliness, and I believe by expressing empathy outward, it confirms that we are not alone. We all have the same issues and problems in our lives.” Leduc said he is relieved to get his poetry out into the world, though he said it feels a bit like inviting the public to criticize your soul. Still, he has a long-term view for the success of his poetry now that he knows it will be available online and is soon to be available in the Ottawa Public Library System. “If it doesn’t catch on this generation, it might catch on the next generation.”

Teen’s hard-hitting musical performed at Centrepointe Adam Kveton

adam.kveton@metroland.com

Arts - A Barrhaven student’s musical about a gay teen who is bullied to the breaking point played at Centrepointe Theatre

on March 18 and 19 after its first showing at Mother Teresa High School. The musical, entitled Break Before Bend, is the work of Elliot Wehrle, a student at Mother Teresa. “Overall, I’m thrilled and I’m so grateful for this opportunity,” said Elliot about the attention the show has received and having it play at Centrepointe.

Break Before Bend has been Elliot’s brainchild for over two years while he’s been composing songs, writing characters and discovering just what his musical was going to be about. Though Elliot has been composing music for much of his 17 years, he participated in his first musical in high school, and thought he would try his hand at it. “I didn’t know if I was se-

Competitive HoCkey CoaCHes

rious about it when I had the idea,” he said. Nor did he know just how serious the musical itself would become. Though the show originally followed several characters in high school, Elliot eventually found himself focusing on the gay teen character. After several years, many

edits and 23 songs, Elliot’s work became a story of homophobic persecution, what it means to undergo severe bullying and, above all, bystanders. While the musical has a lot to do with the interactions between gay teenager Jesse and his bully, Todd, Elliot said the theme of the show resides else-

where. “We are not targeting homophobia here. We are not targeting bullying here,” said Elliot. “We are targeting bystanding and we are targeting apathy.” See PLAYWRIGHT, page 38

Playwright focuses on need for bystander support and action Continued from page 36

While bullies are certainly part of the problem when it comes to homophobic harassment and bullying in general, Elliot explained that he thinks they won’t necessarily be part of the solution either. “What I want to focus on impacting is all of these bystanders who support people like Jesse internally, and I want them to take that support and bring it out into the world, into the halls and the classrooms and show that they really sup-

port him. “That’s one of the big things that we look at in the musical is the whole idea that words are worthless unless actions back them up.” To do this, the musical tries to get into the reality of what it means to be persecuted and the effect it can have, making it heavy and raw, admitted Elliot. However, it wasn’t until the first and only showing of the musical at Mother Teresa High School that Elliot really understood just how much of an impact the musical would have.

“A lot of teachers and students were reduced to tears and hugely impacted by it,” said Elliot. “That was when I kind of realized.” The fact that a musical about a gay teenager was performed at a Catholic school has been the subject of a lot of interest, said Elliot, but the reality is the musical had lots of support. “The Catholic school board was fully supportive,” he said. “They backed the subject matter 100 per cent and they backed the message 100 per cent, so that was great to see.” R0012551875

While the Catholic school board and the school were involved with the editing process, only the 250 Grade 12 students at Elliot’s school were allowed to attend. That one performance was not enough for Elliot or his cast, who have been involved in the production for over a year. With all that work invested and all the attention the show has garnered, Elliot and the cast agreed they wanted at least a few more shows, as well as get their message to a wider audience. Hence the two shows at Centrepointe Theatre on March 18 and 19. It was a lot of work to get it ready. Some of the cast, and especially Sam Turgeon-Brabazon who plays Todd (the bully), had to undergo a transformation to be able to play the polarizing characters they represent, but considering the interest in the show and its message, it’s been worth it, they said. “I am actually friends with people and I know people in my own life who are gay and who are openly gay and have partners and all that stuff,” said Sam, “but I also know people who have gone through severe

But the play isn’t all dark and depressing, said Elliot. In an effort to give the audience a chance to relax, several lighthearted, fun songs were added, he said, which were a relief for him to write as much as much as he hoped they would be for the audience to hear. In the end, the show is about having an impact.

“The title is Break Before Bend, and that’s working on the idea that humans are reluctant to change their ways unless something gets shoved in their face. Then it’s like, ‘All right, maybe I’ll change.’ “I wanted to really hit people in the gut with this thing and really shock them in a good way.” No matter how much Elliot’s musical impacted audiences, this local talent’s first major work has certainly gone a long way.

welcoming 30 children to learn how to play string and wind instruments. Now the centre has more than 300 students. “Many of the students have stuck with the program,” Fedeski said. “The retention rate is remarkable. This program is about playing together and learning together.” She said the school offers many children who would not be able to afford music lessons the opportunity to learn and excel in music. “When you put an instrument into the hands of a child, they have to learn discipline because

they have to go home and practice,” Fedeski said. “Here they learn in a group, so they also have to learn patience and compassion and teamwork. They learn the discipline of counting. Many research claims that playing instruments helps with academics and I think the joy of playing music keeps them going, you see they want to keep getting better.” Funding for the program is through donations, partnerships and grants from the city and province. Over the past seven years, the school has received $140,000 worth of instruments donated from the Ottawa community and

the concert is one way the school helps fundraise for its programs. Aside from it’s after school program, the foundation started a two-year, in-school pilot project which expands the music programming from the centre to Cambridge Street Public School and Centennial Public School for grades 1 to 3. “It is going really well,” Fedeski said. “We will see how it goes and if it all goes well we would look at expanding. Really we are trying to build a community through music ... The most important thing is to engage the kids with the music.”

Arts - A group of young music students will help launch a new culture-conscious music series in Centretown. The Leading Note Foundation’s senior OrKidstra’s Chamber Players will perform at the school’s Cultures in Concert performance on March 21. The students chosen to play are currently completing their final year at the foundation’s free after school music program available for low-income Centretown and Lowertown residents aged five to 18. The evening will be the first in what executive director Tina Fedeski hopes to turn into a series of concerts this season. “The purpose of the concert is to celebrate the diversity of music,” she said. The concert will also welcome National Arts Centre orchestra violinists’ quartet, the Silflay Quartet, Patti Chan, concert master of the Chinese Orchestra, and NAC orchestra member Marjolaine Fournier, who will all perform Chinese-inspired music at the concert at Trillium Hall, located at the Ottawa Chinese-Canadian Heritage Centre.

Urban design panel now open to public laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Residents can now attend formerly cloistered meetings of the urban design review panel – but only as observers. March 6 marked the first open meeting of the panel, which has been a private setting for a volunteer group of

experts in architecture and land-use planning to give advice to developers and designers of major building projects throughout Ottawa. Agendas for upcoming meetings are posted on the panel’s section of ottawa. ca, which can be found by searching for “urban design review panel.” Matthew Ippersiel, the

panel’s co-ordinator, said between two and 12 people were in attendance for any given item on the agenda that day, which ranged from the design for a new Dow Honda dealership on Colonnade Road in Nepean to a five-storey hotel in the Kanata town centre, a retail-condo building on Main Street in Old Ottawa East and an 18-storey

residential building on Rochester Street in Little Italy. The panel that sat in March was slimmer – reduced from 10 to seven members, said Dana Collings, program manager of planning and ur-

ban design. The goal is to streamline the discussion, which can get bogged down with too many people. Having fewer panel members also makes it possible

ing and site plan applications. The developer will still get the confidential pre-consultation meeting with planning staff that he or she is legally entitled to, but the city is axing pre-consultation meetings with the design review panel. Projects won’t be considered by the panel until after a formal rezoning application has been submitted, making it possible for the public to be involved. Collings said the city has received some complaints about the change from people who think the design review will now happen too late in the process to have any effect. But Collings said increasing the amount of information made available to the public will make it a stronger process. “As a member of the public, you are getting a lot of knowledge early in the application process to be able to input your desires and your thoughts,” Collings said. However, Collings said optional private preconsultations will be available for developers as the panel transitions to the new system. The changes also “empower” city planners, Collings said. The city has invested in boosting staff’s knowledge of urban design by making Simon Fraser University’s urban design certificate program available locally. Since the urban design review panel won’t be consulted until later in the process, city planners will be required to call on that new knowledge to provide more direction on urban design in the early stages of the application, Collings said. In their staff reports, planners will also have a chance to provide their own positions on advice given by the urban design review panel. In the past, the panel’s advice has mostly been a mystery, since it was doled out in private meetings and wasn’t required to be recorded on the rezoning report to planning committee. Changes to the way the panel operates will be reviewed after a “few” open sessions to see if tweaks should be made, Collings said.

Residents urged to check water three times a year Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa Public Health is hoping that offering more opportunities for residents to test their wells will prompt them to take drinking water safety seriously. Right now, only about three per cent of residents whose homes are served by private wells use the free testing offered by the city. That’s about

900 of the estimated 30,000 private wells in both the rural and urban areas. If wells are contaminated with pathogens like illnesscausing bacteria or viruses, it can cause both short-term and long-term health problems. It’s recommended that well water is tested regularly – at least three times a year. In the past, the public health department would focus on two blitzes – one in the spring and one in the fall – to hand out water-testing bottles and let residents know the free service is available. There were a few places where residents could pick up free bottles and drop off samples year-round, but the hours were limited and varied and the service wasn’t well known. Now, public health wants to

offer the testing all year and make the bottles available at more locations throughout the city. In addition to drop-offs at Ottawa Public Health’s office at 100 Constellation Cres. in Centrepoint and the Public Health Ontario lab at 2380 St. Laurent Boul., the service will be available at 16 businesses and city facilities in the rural area. Even though the city has offered the free service for years, many people don’t know about it, said Siobhan Kearns, manager of public health’s environment and health protection branch. In some cases, people have been drinking the water for years and never become ill, so they assume the water will always be safe, Kearns said. See RESULTS, page 48

Results of well testing not reported to city “People have wells (and) septic systems, but there is almost this sense of ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ because it’s working,” she said. That’s not the case. Different types of wells – drilled or dug – are susceptible to different issues that could crop up any time – even if there has never been a problem with the well before. Contamination can result from a number of causes, including flooding or problems

with nearby septic beds, Kearns said. Based on the questions public health staff receive, it seems that the most common issue identified with well testing in Ottawa is coliform contamination, Kearns said. Coliform itself doesn’t usually cause illness but its presence indicates other pathogens could get into the water. It can be fixed by treating the well with chlorine to disinfect it. Residents should use bottled water and/or boil the well water for at least a minute

until they can have the well water retested to ensure the chlorine worked, Kearns said. E. coli infections are rarer and more dangerous, Kearns said. Public health can refer residents to companies that offer remediation for more serious well issues. In the past, it’s been hard for the city to track local well conditions because the testing is private and not tracked, Kearns said. “Our only real point where we can determine how many

residents are testing the wells were in the past from our spring and fall well water pick up,” she said. Expanding the well water drop-off locations will better allow the public health department to track the number of samples that are being submitted. The city still won’t have access to the results of the testing, but encouraging more well testing could provide the public health department with useful anecdotal information, Kearns said. If more residents ask Ottawa Public Health for

is if the resident asks public health to help interpret their well-testing results and advise on how to fix problems. In those situations, the city keeps a log of a call requesting information about well remediation, but personal details aren’t tracked because it’s private medical information, Kearns said. “When residents submit their water samples, we don’t know. We don’t get that information. It goes directly back to the well owner,” she said. The changes won’t change the cost of the program. Ottawa Public Health spends $13,000 each year to provide well water testing.

information on how to interpret their results or fix an issue identified through the testing, the health department might notice a trend and be able to address localized issues that could contaminate wells, such as fertilizer or animal-waste run-off. “That would key into us that (public health) might want to look into something for that area,” Kearns said. “It’s a trigger.” Kearns said some of the hesitation to test well water might be because residents worry about what the city will do with the information. But the results don’t get reported to the city, she said. The only way the city would know about the results

Onions a cure-all, according to Mrs. Beam

N

R0012590652

R0012592476-0313

54 Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, March 20, 2014

o matter what ailed you, there was a treatment for it, right there on the

farm. Only when you were seriously afflicted, did you call old Dr. Murphy, who made house calls, to come out from Renfrew, a twelve-and-ahalf-mile trip each way.But you had to be in dire straits indeed, because his fee was $2, or a couple of trussed up freshly plucked chickens and a batch of hot out-of-the oven sticky buns. Of course, if you broke a leg, or suffered some other serious malady, you were taken in to his office, where the fee was only a dollar. Chicken pox, measles, whooping cough, or a very bad cold were not considered serious enough to warrant a call to Dr. Murphy. If Mother couldn’t handle it, Mrs. Beam was called in. She had a cure for everything, and most of them centred around the use of onions, a good dose of onions. Mrs. Beam believed in the healing power of onions. It was fortunate we had a good supply, piled in the cellar in bags.

MARY COOK Memories And no one questioned Mrs. Beam. Emerson, who hated her onion cures as much as the rest of us, was sure she would put a hex on you if you didn’t adhere to her advice, which would ultimately lead to your untimely death. And so we endured what became known as Mrs. Beam’s cure all: the onion treatment. She also thought it best to ward off future diseases before they started, and of course that meant lots of onions. Not cooked. Oh no. Raw, right out of the bag. Early in the winter, Mother was advised to cut them into quarters, put them in a soup bowl, and put them inches from every bed in the house. Father was the only one who believed this would keep the house free of germs. Mother tried it one day in

early winter, and I took a sneezing fit in bed the first night and had to get up, Emerson said he was going to throw up, and Audrey took her next-morning clothes and hung them behind the kitchen door downstairs. That night’s chopped up onions were added to the pig feed the next day. But we weren’t to get off that easy. While most people had their chests slathered with Vick’s VapoRub when they got a cold, we wore a little flannelette packet tied around our necks with string, and filled with chopped onions! The first day we had to wear the packets to the Northcote School, we smelled like a pot of Irish stew, and everyone knew Mrs. Beam had been called in for a “treatment.” It could have been a social disaster, but Mrs. Beam had gotten to a few other households which were threatened with some dastardly disease only onions could keep at bay. We weren’t the only ones reeking at the Northcote School. However, Miss Crosby finally had her fill of the one-

room school house smelling to high heaven, and she sent a note home with every pupil asking that the children stick to Vick’s VapoRub and leave the onions for the stew-pot. Using Mrs. Beam’s treatment at home was one thing, but bringing it into the Northcote School was quite another. There was no thought of staying home from school if you were under the weather. You had to be bed-ridden before you were considered sick enough to miss a day of classes. Passing on your germs never seemed to be a concern. It was assumed, sooner or later, everyone at the Northcote School would eventually get whatever was going around, and you just hung in there and waited for it to happen. The common cold, or what was called the grippe, was never considered a serious ailment. However, measles, and whooping cough were a different matter. Those two meant missing school until either the rash left you, or you stopped coughing. See WORD, page 59

What can I expect at a HolIday RetIRement residence? A common misconception about retirement living is that you’ll be giving up your lifestyle. But that’s not the case at Crystal View Lodge and The Court at Barrhaven in Nepean, Ontario, where you’ll enjoy your own private suite (and yes, pets ARE welcomed!) That means you can do things on your schedule, and eat the exceptional food you’re used to having. More specifically, you can expect three delicious meals per day prepared by professional chefs, all to be enjoyed in a spacious dining room with new friends. You’ll always have people close to you that care. That includes the livein managers, who treat the residents like family and are available day and night. All units are equipped with an emergency call system that can be used around the clock if needed. There’s a real community feel at these residences. While you’re welcome to spend time in your suite catching up on a novel, you’re also encouraged to take part in many activities offered including Tai Chi, euchre, interactive gaming

(Nintendo Wii), or even enlist as a volunteer to help enrich the lives of others. You’ll also reap many other benefits including a weekly housekeeping and linen service, complimentary shuttle service, free laundry facilities, fitness room, guest parking, billiards lounge, and the list goes on. Your misconceptions about retirement living will disappear in a hurry when you choose these residences. You can even choose a trial stay if you’re still not sure. Oh, and one last thing – this one is huge – both residences are part of Holiday Retirement, which has a network of 300 residences in the U.S. and Canada. The company’s travel program allows residents to enjoy the same comfort in another residence location at no extra cost!

A difficult challenge lies ahead, Aries. Save up your energy for the next few days, and keep socializing to a minimum for the time being. The path you have been taking seems more stable, Taurus. This is a good way to go for a while. You will find others are looking to you more for advice. It’s a role you enjoy. Gemini, a string of bad luck is not as bad as it seems. Like most things, this, too, shall pass. Keep your chin up, and hang out with friends to keep your mind busy. A great opportunity presents itself this week, Cancer. Focus your energy on making the most of this opportunity, and you will be glad for having done so. Leo, speak a little louder to ensure your voice is heard on an important issue this week. Your input is valuable, and those around you will be glad you spoke up. Virgo, a new career opportunity is coming your way soon. Make the most of this opportunity if change is something you feel you need at this point in your career.

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

Extra spending leaves you a little light in the wallet, Libra. Look for ways to generate some extra income or curtail your spending in the months ahead. Scorpio, a bumpy road will soon give way to greener pastures. Ride out this rough patch with a smile on your face, and it will pass quickly without wreaking any significant havoc. Sagittarius, a relationship is blossoming and you’re not sure in which direction it should be going. Trust your gut instincts, and things will work out fine. You are tougher than others suspect, Capricorn, and you will prove your mettle with a difficult task that requires all of your focus and energy to master. Others will be impressed. Things are changing, but it’s for the best, Aquarius. Instead of going against the tide, let the waves take you where you need to go. Surprises are in store. Think about moving in a new direction, Pisces. Change can be a good thing, and you will benefit from embracing change this time.
