Hot Seat host calls it quits after two decades Club offers one last toast to Mark Papousek Tyler Costello

Members of the Kanata Sports Club have been gathering on the secondfloor of the Jack Charron Arena for two decades to eat lunch, drink beer and talk shop as they and Papousek asked questions of special guests. The idea for the weekly event was

first suggested to Papousek by bartender Wayne Pilon as the future Hot Seat host drank beer at the sports club. That was 21 years ago. The Hot Seat, which has taken place every Friday afternoon of the winter months, has provided a candid setting for local sports figures to discuss their trade. “What’s said here, stays here,” said

Papousek as he began asking questions to the Hot Seat’s final guest, Randy Lee, director of hockey operations and player development for the Ottawa Senators. Papousek built a relationship with the Senators’ players, so they know and trust him, said Lee.

Columnist Earl McRae shielded by garbage can lid for Hot Seat his more memorable guests. “It’s been fun, I wouldn’t have it any other way,� he said. “It has certainly kept us in business, kept the beer flowing,� said Lorne Weatherall, who has been president of the Kanata Sports Club for the last 11 years. Weatherall presented Papousek with a plaque and a Senators’ jersey, signed by the team, on behalf of the Kanata Sports Club. Lee presented him with a Senators’ wristwatch. The Kanata Sports Club has raised $52,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation just through its 50/50 draws, held at the end of the Hot Seat. “It’s all about the kids,� said Weatherall. “Everything has been wonderful, I’ve been lucky; my wife says I’ve been retired for 21 years,� said Papousek, who added the club has the best food and the cheapest beer. “I’ll still be a constant figure at the bar.�

Lee, who has been with the Senators for 18 years, would usually come in for the first and last Hot Seat of the season. Papousek recalled the Hot Seat when Chris Phillips brought in Danny Heatley after Heatley had just been traded to the Senators. The club was packed to its 120-person capacity and the questions from members kept coming, said Papousek. Senators like Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza, Chris Neil and Phillips were staples of the Hot Seat but guests from other areas of the sports world, such as Jack Donahue – head coach of the Canadian national men’s basketball team and the late journalist Earl McRae, were also featured speakers.

Police display cocaine, guns and ammunition seized as a part of a six-month investigation and four days of raids over the Easter weekend during an April 2 media conference.

Katimavik home raided during massive drug bust Six people arrested, $700,000 worth of cocaine seized by police Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The Ottawa police guns and gangs unit spent the long Easter weekend finishing a six-month investigation that lead to six arrests and the seizure of $700,000 worth of cocaine. Oxycodone pills, marijuana and weapons were also confiscated. Seizures were made from three residences in Ottawa involved in the drug trafficking “business operations” said Sgt. Ken Bryden, who supervised the raids. Homes in the 300 block of Fenerty Court in Kanata, the 200 block of Moss Grove Street in Barrhaven and 1300 Prince of Wales Drive were raided as part of the investigation, code named Project Apache. Six individuals were charged, including a 29-yearold from Ottawa who went by the street name Apache. Three 21-year-old men, a 20-yearold man from Ottawa and a 27-year-old man from Gatineau were also charged. The charges include participation in a criminal organization, the first time for Ottawa

guns and gangs arrests. “This is the first time we’ve seen that with street gang members here in our city,” said Staff Sgt. Mark Patterson. Bryden said that there has been an increase in cocaine trafficking in the city over the past few years. “It’s supply and demand. It’s the nature of that business now,” Bryden said. “It’s something that has progressed over the years. It’s certainly a trend that I’ve seen.” The scope of the raids ranged from Kanata to Orléans and included work with Gatineau and Toronto police. “We had officers from the west end, we had officers from the east end, we had neighbourhood officers from central,” Sgt. Bryden said. “It’s city wide.” It led to an intense four days over Easter, with the raids condensed over two days at the three residences for the 10-person team involved in the project. None of the arrested lived in the homes that were raided. The accused often travelled back and forth to Toronto, but were all Ottawa-based. While Patterson was hesitant to elaborate on gang con-

nections related to the bust until the case is in front of the courts, he did say the Crip gang believed to be was involved. Police have stopped referring to the Crips as the Ledbury-Banff Crips, but they have long been reported as group based in south-east Ottawa. The people arrested were not the drug dealers seen “doing hand-to-hand transactions” Bryden said, but the ones higher up in the organization’s chain of command, trafficking large amounts to smallerquantity dealers. Police suspect much of the powder cocaine seized would have been turned into crack cocaine and sold to crack addicts. The project originally started as a firearms investigation, said Staff Sgt. Patterson. The firearms seized – a .45-calibre Llama Max handgun and Browning 9-mm handgun – are being sent to the Ontario Centre for Forensic Sciences in Toronto to undergo ballistic testing to see if they match evidence for any unsolved crimes. There are still ongoing charges and arrests expected to be made as a result of the investigation. Two arrests were made early in the investigation in November and the six arrested over Easter are being held in police custody.

Community gathers to plan for emerald ash borer Tyler Costello

tyler.Costello@metroland.com

EMC news - Kanataarea residents packed into a small room in the Mlacak Centre to hear about how they can best protect their area’s ash trees from the dreaded emerald ash borer on March 27. The meeting, organized by Ecology Ottawa and the Kanata Lakes Community Association, heard from various speakers, including Jason Pollard, senior forester of the city of Ottawa’s forestry planning protection. The ash borer, a woodboring beetle that attacks all native species of ash trees, was first discovered in Ottawa in 2008 and is thought to have moved from Asia to North America through the movement of wood materials, explained Pollard. He said the city’s plan to deal with the ash borer involves treating trees with TreeAzin, a biological insecticide derived from the neem tree – a native of India, and planting different species of trees to replace dying ash trees. “There are different strategies for rural and urban areas and we came to find out what a good strategy would be,” said

Kanata residents discuss how they can prepare themselves for the spread of the emerald ash borer during a meeting at the Mlacak Centre on March 27. Judy Henry, who owns a 10-hectare property in West Carleton with hundreds of ash trees. At a cost of about $200 a tree, TreeAzin would not be an option for Henry. The application of TreeAzin involves drilling several holes in a tree’s base and injecting the insecticide through the holes. The process needs to take place between the months of May and August, after ash trees have started to transpire or draw

He often speaks at community meetings about the ash borer and said he will probably treat around 10,000 ash trees with TreeAzin in Ontario this year. It is not yet know how effective the insecticide is, said Pollard, but the city has treated over 2,300 trees of an estimated 70,000 ash trees on city streets and parks, an estimated 20 to 25 per cent of the city’s tree population. The city plans to continue identifying and treating ash trees in the next couple of months. If you have an ash tree on your property Barker advises you to call an arborist to figure out your best option, he also recommends speaking to your neighbors. Many companies that treat ash trees with TreeAzin offer group discounts.

water from the soil, making it easier for the insecticide to be sucked up from the trees’ base, said Sean Barker, a certified arborist and director of treefeed.ca. Getting information to unaware homeowners, and people taking the issue too lightly are the biggest hindrances to stopping the ash borer’s spread, he said. Mario Poirier, whose personal research into the number of ash trees in his area was part of what led the Kanata Lakes Community Association to hold the meeting, said most people in his community weren’t even aware that they had ash trees on their properties. Poirier counted about 160 homes his area that had ash trees. “Whenever an ash borer is on the front page, I get tons of calls the next day,” said Barker.

EMC news - Students in Kim Izsak’s Grade 5 and 6 class at Holy Redeemer Catholic School in Katimavik have found a unique way of raising money for local charities. The class is currently working on developing, marketing, and publishing their very own cookbook, working with a project called the Entrepreneurial Adventure Program which is organized through The Learning Partnership. “In a nutshell basically it is to promote an entrepreneurial spirit amongst students,” said Izsak. “Students are given the chance to envision something, create it, grow it right from scratch and actually bring it to market.” The goal for these students is to learn more about the entrepreneurial process while raising money for local charities. Students in the class brainstormed and voted on which charities they would like to support. In the end they chose the CHEO Foundation and the Shepherds of Good Hope. “We chose Shepherds of Good

Hope because it is not a well known charity and we chose CHEO because we thought it would be really nice to help out all those kids,” said grade 6 student Kailey Lavergne. The students are accepting submissions for the cook book from friends and family and are also trying to give the book a bit of a celebrity theme. The class has been contacting sports figures, TV personalities, radio personalities and local politicians hoping to get recipe submissions for the book. The class has also broken itself into teams to co-ordinate their effort. They have a design team, a marketing team, a jokes and comics team and even a team in charge of researching how to get the book published. They are making all the calls themselves,” said Izsak. The class hopes to raise $600 in total through cookbook sales; $100 to pay back the school board for the money it gave them and $250 for each charity. Anyone who would like to submit a recipe or contribute to the project can contact Izsak at holy.redeemer@ ocsb.ca.

LETTERS For example, if putting new insulation in your attic or changing out the old furnace and water heater for more efficient models would cost say, $20,000, but you’re only planning to stay at that location for five years, many people will not make the investment. PAPER would allow homeowners and business owners to essentially take out a loan to improve energy efficiency and pay for it on their city tax bill. The loan repayments will be less than the cost savings realized, so it would essentially pay for itself. The loan will stay with the property meaning the new owner would continue to pay off the loan, and everyone would benefit from realizing the cost and energy savings. Other areas that Ottawa can take action in include transportation, renewable energy, and land use planning. For example, efforts to encourage intensification, no expansion of the urban boundary coupled with increased protection of our city’s green space, will help lower our greenhouse gas emissions city-wide. Ottawa can also enact a Complete Streets policy and invest in infrastructure to support active transportation, such as walking and cycling, to encourage people to drive their private automobiles less. Climate change is perhaps the most important social justice issue of our time, in that those who have contributed least to it are suffering its worst consequences. It is essential that our city government and all citizens take action to reduce our use of the oil, coal and gas that is creating it. As said by the keynote speaker at the roundtable, Alex Wood, climate change can’t be addressed without solutions that come from the municipal sector. Wood is senior director of policy and markets at Sustainable Prosperity, a University of Ottawa-based green economics think tank. We would all be wise to listen to what he and the other speakers at the roundtable had to say. Trevor Haché Katimavik

To the editor, Re: Hosting a venting session, editorial, March 28, KKS. I fundamentally disagree with the notion that the City of Ottawa should not have hosted a greenhouse gas roundtable, and there were a variety of inaccuracies stated in your editorial. Indeed, cities across Ontario (such as Toronto, Guelph, Kingston, Waterloo, and the list goes on and on) and around the world (Vancouver, Montreal, New York, London, Paris, the list goes on and on) are taking action to try to prevent global warming and catastrophic climate change, and the City of Ottawa and Mayor Jim Watson should be congratulated for re-committing to do so. Ottawa’s previous Air Quality and Climate Change Management Plan, written in 2004, is now out of date, as are the targets in it related to reducing the city’s own greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the community’s emissions (emissions from citizens and businesses operating in Ottawa are referred to as ‘community’ emissions in the report). The good news is that taking action to fight climate change will help taxpayers save money, and it will allow the city to save money in its own operations, too. There are literally dozens and dozens of policies and programs that Ottawa can put in place to bring down greenhouse gas emissions, and perhaps one of the most promising is the idea that was strongly supported by city Coun. David Chernushenko at the roundtable: Property Assessed Payments for Energy Retrofits (PAPER). The basic idea is that residents and businesses of Ottawa would be able to borrow money to perform retrofits that will ensure major energy and cost savings related to heating and electrifying our homes and businesses. Many people are reluctant to make these necessary upgrades because of uncertainty about how long they will be staying at their new house or business address.

EDITORIAL

A tale lacking in substance

I

n the play Macbeth, Shakespeare describes life as “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.” He just as easily could have been referring to the city’s planning process: endless meetings filled with talk but often devoid of discussion. It is a process that is frustrating for the public, frustrating for city staff, and, at times infuriating for the developers. The element of conflict is baked into the recipe of site plans and rezoning applications – a development proposal never meets everyone’s vision of the character of the surrounding neighbourhood. But conflict should be an opportunity for rational discourse and a little constructive give-andtake, resulting in a compromise. Instead, it often turns into a standoff between two diametrically opposed camps. It drags on for months at community consultations and at city hall before finally (in worst case scenarios) landing at the feet of the Ontario Municipal Board. Too often we witness members of the public show up at consultation meetings armed only with emotional arguments. Bitter words are often exchanged, but little else.

If the city wants to encourage rational discourse and limit pointless debate and time spent wasted arguing lost causes at the OMB, it must start by educating the public. We sympathize with the public’s confusion about the planning process, with the city still trying to harmonize its zoning rules – something which hopefully will fall into place during the review of the Official Plan. It starts and ends with education. The city already offers planning primer courses throughout the year, explaining how planners evaluate development proposals, zoning rules, how secondary plans fit with the city’s official plan and a discussion about how the OMB works. More people might take advantage of this set of courses if they were offered throughout the city – instead of just at city hall – and working in conjunction with the various community associations that pepper the municipality. Developers, for their part, can also participate in the process, by participating in or speaking at some of these courses. Providing a forum for rational debate meets the needs of everyone – developers, the city and the public included.

The cuddliness factor and Canadian politics

L

ess than a week after the tabling of his government’s budget, Stephen Harper went to Toronto to meet two pandas arriving from China. The news pictures coming out of that event were much nicer than the news pictures coming out of the budget because there were no pandas involved in the budget. Stephen Harper knew that. He didn’t get where he is by not understanding such things. Everybody looks better standing with a panda and everybody sounds better talking about pandas, even when what they say is absurd. For example, here’s what the prime minister said at the Toronto airport: “Over the coming years these pandas will help us learn more about one another while serving as a reminder of our deepening relationship, a relationship based on mutual respect and growing collaboration.” This will come as quite a surprise to the pandas, who figured that all they had to do in their lives was stay in the cage, eat bamboo, breed and get used to people in Toronto Maple Leafs caps waving at them. Now they find out they are supposed to help Canadians and Chinese learn more about each other, as well as serve as a reminder of a deepening relationship.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town What a job description for a panda. But what a great coup for the prime minister to be at the centre of this happy event, surrounded by more photographers than ever show up at, say, the opening of a new prison. This is because pandas are cuddly – not that you’d ever want to try to cuddle one because they are big and have sharp teeth and probably don’t understand English or French very well just yet. At a safe distance, however, pandas are more cuddly, even, than dogs. We know this because of developments in the Pooch Café comic strip in the Citizen, where the dogs are deeply concerned that their capacity to be adored by people is being undermined by cute pandas. All of this is to say the prime minister Published weekly by:

chose wisely. It also suggests one of large problems confronting Canadian politicians is a shortage of pandas. All of them would like to be seen next to one and be able to make speeches about how they serve as reminders of deepening relationships. Imagine Jim Watson, mayor of Ottawa, being able to talk about pandas instead having to say something, one way or the other, about casinos. That would be such an improvement for him. Even if he had bad news to announce, such as the decision to locate a casino on the lawn of the Supreme Court, having a panda beside him when he made the announcement would make it so much more palatable. Similarly, having a panda present at the announcement of each new 23-story building in Ottawa would make the looming shadows over residential neighbourhoods so much easier to take. The panda, not the building, would be in the shot. Put a panda on the west lawn of the Museum of Nature when you announce that it is going to be a parking lot. Put a panda in front of CIDA when it closes. Hey, how about the Ottawa Pandas as the name of the new CFL team? Who could object? Sadly, there are simply not enough pandas

to go around. Already in short supply, they don’t breed as enthusiastically as they might (maybe they just like to cuddle). So just to get two to come to Canada is a pretty great thing. In the absence of pandas, the hunt is on for creatures of significant cuddliness who could serve politicians as an acceptable substitute. Our customary national symbols, the beaver and the Canada goose, have enemies. Penguins, also celebrated in Pooch Café, would find our climate too warm. Clever politicians have already found a substitute: hockey players. Wasn’t Barack Obama posing with some of them just the other day?

Sep 12-13: Daniel O’Donnell & Mary Duff

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse those of us who may have to remit funds to the government this month. Even friends who are expecting a windfall this April are feeling nervous about having a lump sum dropped into their bank accounts. Why? According to a new book released by Money Coaches Canada founders Karin Mizgala and Sheila Walkington, we’re scared when we lack control. Unstuck: How to get out of your money rut and start living the life you want, offers a ground-up guide to uncovering how you feel about money, what you should and want to be doing with it and assessing what you already know. Unfortunately, the statistics suggest most of us haven’t got a clue. “People have lost the ability to look at the value of money,” says Judith Cane, with Money Coaches Canada in Ottawa. “They’ve forgotten what the function of money is – that you’re exchanging cash for a product or service.” No surprise, Cane says much of it has to do with our society’s reliance on virtual money – in the form of lines of credit and paying with plastic. “I often take clients back to using envelopes of cash,” says Cane. “Putting that $20 per hour you earned into an envelope and then taking it to the grocery store to buy food helps to create that link between what you’re making and what you’re spending.” And that link is an important one. The basic principle around money is that what comes in must be greater than what goes out. But when money never touches people’s hands, they not only lose track, but they fail to comprehend that principle. That’s when things get scary, says Cane. “People are afraid of money because they have no idea what their situation is,” she explains. “If you stopped people on the street and asked if they had debt, they’d probably say yes. If you asked them when they’ll have the debt paid off, they’d have no idea. Nine out of 10 people don’t have a clue about their own net worth.” Cane works on the principle that once people know who the enemy is they don’t have to be afraid of it anymore. And it’s not just for people in debt. Money Coaches Canada was founded by former financial advisers Mizgala and Walkington in Vancouver with the goal of providing financial help to people who need it – not just those that have money to invest. They developed a fee-for-service model to appeal to a broad range of individuals – specifically, those who want guidance with money that’s not tied to any products, services or investments. “There is a huge demand for financial planning services like this right now,” says Cane. The fact is everything about money has become more complex. See GENERATIONAL, page 24

RCMP Superintendant Greg Peters visits Kanata Seniors Center Steve Dool

steve.dool@metroland.com

EMC news - Having tea with the Queen, rubbing shoulders with the Obamas, appearing in photographs with Nelson Mandela, Daniel Day Lewis, Michael J Fox– it’s all in a days work for Supt. Greg Peters, director of the strategic partnerships and heritage branch of the RCMP. Peters spoke last week at the Kanata Seniors Centre as part of the Winter 2013 Learning Series. His theme was “honored and humbled” and he talked about his long and illustrious 31-yearcareer with the RCMP. Peters joined the RCMP in 1981 and was first deployed to Flin Flon, Manitoba. He joined the RCMP’s Musical Ride in 1988 and did his first tour with the ride in Europe. When the tour visited the Royal Dublin Society Spring Road the same year, Peters said he was overwhelmed by the welcoming they received. “They went from 2,000 people per day to around 50,000 per day for the time we were there,” said Peters. “When the gates opened up

all you could here was like a soccer game, a humungous roar of support and cheering for the world famous RCMP.” Eventually Peters took on the job of media relations for the Musical Ride and stayed in that position for five years before starting the nonprofit RCMP organization. Peters has been fundamental in securing private funding for supporting and expanding the musical ride. Peters has overseen and served as a Royal escort with the Musical Ride many times, including during the recent Diamond Jubilee ceremony held at Windsor Castle. Also, members of the RCMP became the first non-British, nonmilitary unit to guard the gates of Buckingham Palace. He and his wife have also stayed at the palace as personal guests of the Queen. During ceremonial visits his office is in charge of RCMP Honor Guards. “He was an excellent speaker and he really knows his stuff,” said audience member Wilf Steve Dool/Metroland Pilsworth. “It’s good to be reminded of what tre- Director of the Strategic Partnerships and Heritage Branch of the RCMP gave a mendous heritage we have,” said Pilsworth. presentation at the Kanata Seniors Center last week.

Bridlewood school goes wild Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - A Bridlewood school walked on the wild side March 26 thanks to a visit from the Earth Rangers. The Earth Rangers is a conservation group – known for their Bring Back the Wild program – which encourages children to get involved in protecting the habitat of endangered animals. St. Anne Catholic School was one of the many visited by the team of two conservationists, thanks to sponsors Waste Management. “We are really excited to visit Ottawa, where children

have access to local wildlife,” said Meghan Woodworth, adding most of the schools she visits in the Toronto area tend to be surrounded by concrete. Last year, the rangers visited 500 schools and signed up more than 1,000 new junior Earth Rangers. The students at St. Anne’s learned about preserving the habitats of four types of animals the organization is currently championing. Kids saw videos on the lives and habits of badgers, polar bears, the wood thrush and the Oregon spotted frog. “Kids are really excited to learn they can help preserve an animal’s habitat,” Earth

Ranger Larissa Schiffman said. The assembly opened with the story of Aiden, an eightyear-old who heard about threats to the Monarch butterfly. “The monarch butterflies were in danger because of the eradication of their food, the milk weed plant,” Schiffman said. “So, Aiden made a habitat in his own backyard.” Woodworth said children interested in participating in Earth Rangers programs can visit www.earthrangers.com. “We have to get the next generation interested in proJennifer McIntosh/Metroland tecting wildlife,” Woodworth Meghan Woodworth, prepares to show students at St. Anne Catholic School what a falcon said. looks like in flight.

Why eat organic? EMC lifestyle - The organic food and drink industry has expanded rapidly, experiencing an average growth of 20 per cent per year on a global scale. What motivates people to buy organic foods? Health, wholesomeness, and respect for the environment are sure to be found at the top of the list. An organic-certified food is produced without the use of any chemical products. The difference between organic and non-organic foods is the absence of all chemical pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives. Eating organic, like our ancestors did, is the only way to avoid the involuntary consumption of substances that are potentially hazardous to our health. Did you know that over time, the ingestion of many food industry chemical substances can lead to a weakening of the immune system and have harmful effects on the mental, cognitive and physical development of children? In addition, numerous studies have shown that the current antibiotics resistance

An organically grown food means no preservatives, chemicals or pesticides were used. observed in humans is the direct result of the use of growth hormones and medications given to cattle and pigs raised for slaughter. This is just one of the reasons why organic food is increasingly popular among consumers. An organic product does not contain any more vitamins than a similar non-organic product. A carrot is still a carrot, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic or not. Choosing to buy organic is based solely on ecological

and social reasons. Buying an organic carrot means knowing exactly what is on your plate. Even better, buying locally produced organic foods means encouraging local producers and reducing the amount of greenhouse gases produced by the transportation of food over long distances. What a great way to contribute directly to the good health of our country and make the most of Mother Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bounty. R0012009733

Generational juggling Much of it comes down to demographics. The sandwich generation means families with young children are trying to account for childcare and eldercare costs simultaneously. A high

Just when we think we’ve got a handle on things, the situation is apt to change.

divorce rate means people are learning to raise families on a single income, at the same time dividing up what they own and, perhaps more importantly, what they owe. Young professionals are waiting longer to start families, which means they have more disposable income for longer than they did historically. And at the other end of the spectrum, the

Baby Boomers are retiring en masse and they’re projected to live for a very long time on their pensions. It’s almost as though every family could use its own certified financial officer, says Cane. “I had a retired couple in last year and they’d been blue-skying for years about spending a few winter months in Arizona,” she explains. “But they

were always saying, ‘wouldn’t it be nice,’ without actually having a plan. They were worried about spending too much money, not having anything to leave to their children. Once we got into the minutia of their financial situation – spendings and savings, living and death benefits – we were able to get them to Arizona and they felt good about the decision.”

CAT OF THE WEEK I AM “ODIE” WILL YOU LOVE ME ? He is a lovely long haired pewter grey fellow. First few minutes when you meet him he will be shy but once he knows you are visiting him he will show all his sweetness and have his heart on his sleeve. He would love to be loved and made feel that he is special which he is. The more love you give the more he will return to you. Some one who will appreciate his sensitivity will be rewarded with undying devotion. You won’t have to wait long.... once he loves you... you are his for keeps!

Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics to host second provincial qualifier Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club

EMC sports - The Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club is set to host the second provincial qualifying meet at Earl of March Secondary School from April 20 to 21. Kanata gymnasts participated in the first qualifying meet at the Etobicoke Olympium in Toronto for the Ontario Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships, which will be held in Toronto in June. They were not disappointed; after the three days of competition many of the 22 gymnasts placed in the top 60 per cent of their levels, the cut-off point for qualifying for the Ontario Championships. The final qualifying meet will determine which gymnasts will compete in Toronto in June, and the competition is tough, close and exciting. Kanata had two gymnasts competing this year who are new to provincial level competition: • Cynthia Zhang, 7, who was a member of the pre-competitive group the Rising Stars last year, placed 12 overall in level 1B, with ninth for her free routine and 13th in the rope event.   • Adelle Chen, a new gymnast who began rhythmic gymnastics in

the KRSG Summer Camp, placed 14th overall in the level 3A competition, with 13th for her free routine and 13th in the hoop.   Both gymnasts are in a qualifying spot for the Ontario Championships, which would be a huge achievement in their very first year of competition.   The most experienced KRSG gymnasts led the way with 17-yearold gymnasts Megan Kawai and Danica Goodchild both taking the overall silver medals in their competitions, Sarah Manyoki, 15, taking the overall bronze in level 5B, and Caroline Liang, 13, winning the overall bronze in level 4B.   Brianna Lu, Baylianne Rich, Emma Yau, Erika Lin, Haley Miller, Adeline Wang, Britney Han, Winnie Fan, Emma Smith, Julia Yang, Donya Hassan- Zadeh and Marie Arsenault all had top-eight placements in their events.

Kanata-Hazeldean Lions to welcome the community Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club

EMC news - The Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club wants to shed a little light on the kind of community work it does and attract some willing hands to keep up the efforts, as they welcome people from the area to their Welcome Night on April 9. The event runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Dick Brule Community Centre, 170 Castlefrank Rd. “The club wants the community to see what we do in a fun setting,” said Lions member Todd Sloan. “The idea is to invite folks over for some refreshments and a few bad jokes and to set up some booths where we can explain some of our recent projects. We also hope to get some ideas for new initiatives.” Lions will be on hand to describe

activities such as: • Vision screening: Lions go into elementary schools to provide vision tests for children whose parents have granted permission. Issues in acuity, colour and depth perception are passed on to parents for their consideration. • Scrap booking: about once a month, Lions member Naomi Nakamura hosts day-long sessions for people who want to create lasting memories. • Vision assistance in Guyana: Lions member Tom Feltmate will describe his adventures in South America passing on used eye glasses to those who need them and providing other vision services to poor residents. • The Santa Claus Parade: learn how the club gets hundreds of groups and bands into more than

60 units and floats every year to provide food for the Kanata Food Cupboard and a treat to a lot of little ones. • Guide dogs: learn how the Lions support the breeding and training of dogs who work magic helping people, not only with visual impairments, but also with mobility issues, autism and other disabilities. None of these events is a huge undertaking, but each has its own challenges and learning curve. In addition to helping the community, Lions gain valuable experience in planning, organizing and leading – skills easily transferable to vocational and non-profit purposes. The Lions believe there are neighbours who might want to provide, and receive, the benefits of the small things done by the club.

Carleton engineering students set up a crash simulation at the National Research Council on March 25 with the help of Ottawa police. It took a few tries, but the students eventually managed to crash a “cyclist” into a car, which was travelling 30 kilometres per hour.

Dummy crash test to shed light on cyclist, vehicle accidents Carleton engineering students work with Ottawa police on project Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - It took a few tries, but eventually a 180 pound dummy crashed into a speeding car at the National Research Council on March 25, the culmination of joint study between Ottawa students and police. The simulated crash was part of an eight-month-long study conducted by Carleton University engineering students and Algonquin College toolmaking students, working in conjunction with Ottawa police to help better understand exactly what happens when a cyclist and car collide. “We have a number of theories and a couple of ideas of what the data will look like, but it all depends on how the dummy hits the car,” said project coordinator Brigitte Babin, a fourth year biomedical and mechanical engineering student. The simulation had a dummy “cyclist” ride down a track, as a

sedan was speeding past - with the inevitable crash occuring between the two vehicles. After three failed attempts where the dummy sailed behind or in front of the car, the fourth attempt was a success, resulting in a crash of potentially deadly proportions. Babin’s classmates, all in students in Carleton’s department of mechanical and aerospace engineering, designed and built the electronics for the crash, while Algonquin College’s mechanical techniciantoolmaking program handled the mechanical elements of building the dummy. The test involved multiple cameras located at every angle of the crash site as well as a camera on the cyclist’s helmet and the vehicle. Sensors built by the students were placed inside the dummy, in its head, chest and arms to help determine the impact of the crash. Ottawa police served as a resource for the students

throughout the eight month study, which began last fall. Det. Alain Boucher of the police traffic unit participated in the study, offering up data, information and experience along the way. Babin said it has been this sort of help that has been crucial to the project and students’ success. “It has been a really great experience and the police have been a tremendous amount of help,” she said. On the day of the crash simulation, Boucher and the remainder of the traffic team, including the collision investigators, were present to reconstruct the crash between the sedan and the cyclist. The officers gathered the information as they would with any crash, but this time, the students had the data to back up the officers findings. It’s this kind of collaboration that Boucher said he believes will help the police better understand accidents in the future. “We are interested in terms of the collision investigation,” Boucher said. “This is a training day for us. There is little information out there and no real world information on cy-

clist and vehicle accidents. This crash simulation brings us much closer to a real world situation.” According to the police, on average in Ottawa, there are more than 300 collisions reported involving vehicles and cyclists per year. With a number of bike paths crossing city streets, the segregated bike lane on Laurier Avenue and the city’s plans for expanding cycling routes and paths across the city, Boucher said collisions will be on the rise as cycling use increases. Between 2007 and 2011, there were 1,253 incidents where the cyclist was injured and a total of 12 fatalities. “We anticipate a rise in collisions (and) we are trying to be ahead of the gain,” Boucher said. “My hope is it won’t happen, but we will be prepared. We are just keeping our training up to snuff.” Ottawa paramedics, fire department and the National Research Council all helped the students on the day of the crash test. The results from the crash will be studied, and later presented by the students at the end of this semester.

Lansdowne Park construction noise may run through the night Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Glebe residents will have to put up with occasional construction noise at night as workers begin to pour concrete at Lansdowne Park. City council OKed a noise exemption to allow concrete work to carry on until 1 a.m. every night as necessary for the remainder of construction at the site, which is expected to last until 2015.

Residents will be notified of the exception and then prior to each instance when work is expected to go late. Notice will be sent to residents and posted on the city’s website, ottawa. ca. But Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said it’s high time the city looked at offering hotel rooms for residents who are continuously bombarded with late-night construction noise approved by council. “We can’t continue to say ‘It’s just one more time,’ ” said the councillor, adding he intends to pursue options for getting council to support his hotelroom plan. Marco Manconi, the manager in charge of the Lansdowne project, said late-night concrete pouring would likely only be done a total of two or three

times. The parking garage, stadium and towers require large amounts of concrete that must be poured continuously – sometimes for as long as 24 hours – for the best results, he said. “The way the project has been designed requires these long pours,” he said. concrete pouring

Related concrete finishing work will also be allowed to go on until 1 a.m. and that type of work will happen three or four times each month, Manconi said. That type of work won’t be too obtrusive, he said. Once workers and equipment are on site, the work itself won’t continue to create noise into the

The exemption is important to ensure Lansdowne work stays on schedule, said Coun. Steve Desroches, who introduced the motion. Chernushenko was the only councillor to dissent on the noise exemption approval, which he did “out of solidarity for the big picture.”

“It’s important to put it into full context,” Chernushenko said. “We’re approaching a year of work … it’s important to recognize the impact on people.” Chernushenko said he asked Manconi to promise that work will not be done at night unless it is an absolute necessity. R0012012058_0404

Consult on consultation doesn’t break mould Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Residents who came to city hall on March 25 to help the municipality figure out how to better engage with them were disappointed that the “consultation on consultations” didn’t break the city’s mould. Participants in the first session of the series were not happy they did not get a presentation on the city’s current consultation guidelines, what works and what doesn’t work from the city’s perspective. “Instead, they focused on ‘principles’ and ‘values,’ both of which were ill-defined and overlapping,” said John Dance, president of the Old Ottawa East Community Association. Other participants were angry that city staff came to them with a pre-determined set of four values such as: “The public should have an opportunity to express their views about decisions that affect their lives.” The proliferation of the word “should” throughout the draft documents bothered many participants, including Steve Clay

of Alta Vista, who insisted it be changed to “must.” The city could always find a way to exercise that “should” clause and exclude citizens’ voices, said Catherine Boucher, a member of the Centretown Citizens Community Association. Glebe Community Association and Federation of Citizens’ Associations member Bob Brocklebank said citizens are tired of being treated as “window dressing” to fulfill the city’s requirement to say it consulted people. The March 25 consultation reflected the tenor of many city consultations, said several participants, including Dance. He said it’s difficult for residents to respond to the city’s request for feedback when they are not presented with “real options.” “You’re saying, ‘This is how we are going to do it,” he said. “You need to go back farther.” Sharing information and helping citizens be informed about the issues they’re being consulted on are important, Clay said, and others agreed. Manjit Basi, one of the founders of a new community-

engagement non-profit called Citizens Academy, said, “Empowerment is a pre-requisite to collaboration.” Central Park resident Stuart Sykes agreed. If the underlying requirements and process deosn’t change, altering the way consultations are conducted won’t make much difference, he said. For instance, rezonings are not designed to reveal details of what’s planned for a new building early on, he said. “To be effective, it needs to be from the ground up,” Sykes said. Colleen Hendriks, one of the city staffers leading the publicengagement consultation, said her team wants to get all city departments on board with using the consultation toolkit that will be developed. “We do aspire that there will be improvements across the corporation (of the City of Ottawa),” she said. There was some discussion about when it is appropriate for the city to consult, versus when it is appropriate – and what it means – to collaborate with citizens, or simply inform

Participants gather in group discussions on March 25 for the city’s first consultation to draft a new public engagement strategy. and discussion. However, city staff is sometimes reluctant to move into the group discussion format because it can become oppositional, Holmes said. The idea of having a small working group or public advisory committee of residents, consultants, proponents and city staff that intensively reviews projects was debated. Boucher said those groups do work, but they are sometimes

them. Manor Park resident Penny Thompson said the city needs to look at everything about the process, even down to small details like ensuring consultants and city staff wear name tags to identify themselves at community meetings. Some things the city does are working, participants said. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes was the only councillor to participate in the first session. She listed two types of consultations that seem to go smoothly: the process for redesigning roads heavily engages neighbours and road users, she said, and open house-format meetings work well when they are followed by a presentation

akin to “secret societies” because it’s unclear how the members are chosen. A number of meetings and an online survey available at ottawa.ca will be used to create a staff report that will be reviewed by a small group of key stakeholders in the summer before it is presented to and debated by the city’s finance and economic development committee in the fall.

New plan for Petrie Islands laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Large events at Petrie Islands should be limited to the current three annual festivals to minimize impacts on the environment there, says a new conservation plan adopted by the city last week. Petrie Islands is a 291-hectare site composed of alluvial islands, wetlands and forests in the Ottawa River. The islands were formed when large deposits of silt and rock washed against the banks of the river. It is recognized as a provincially significant wetland. The goal of the plan is to continue to have the site serve as a popular recreation area while protecting its natural features. The biggest event held at Petrie is the Canada Day celebration, which attracted 24,000 people in 2009. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette said the community is very proud of events like Carivibe and wants to see them continue. “This report recommends that we maintain the existing and be very careful about adding any new ones,” said Dan Chenier, city parks, recreation and culture general manager. “The intention is to focus the large festivals as much as possible in the sand bowl … It’s

just simply good planning.” A large influx of people onto the islands creates problems with control of public access, ensuring emergency vehicles can get in, controlling alcohol consumption near the water, dealing with noise pollution and mitigating conflicts with other people using the area, the report says. The site is also a popular recreational area, especially in the summer. There are a number of beaches, multi-use pathways, a boat launch, a playground, an interpretation centre and picnic area. There are already washrooms and a new snack bar is also being developed. One of the challenges from more people using the area over the next 25 years will be having to manage more waste. There is already a demand for recycling facilities says the report prepared by city staff. Managing inappropriate activities such as illegal parking, using motorized boats and walking dogs will also be important, according to the report. Reducing erosion of the beach will be critical as well, the report says. Flooding, wind and a lack of shoreline-stabilizing plants contribute to erosion, but human use is the biggest factor. The plan includes strong protection of 48 per cent of the site as a “primary conservation” area where

no development is allowed and public access is discouraged. This area includes the south islands and some of the west islands, as well as the turtle pond and Muskrat Bay (Grandmaitre Ecological Reserve). The recreation area will compose 10 per cent of the total site, including Steumer Park, Al Tweddle picnic area, the Friends of Petrie Island Interpretive Centre and the recreational pathway corridor on the mainland. Certain activities like dog walking and cycling may only per permitted in areas such as the Queenswood Forest. There are also recommendations of subtle vegetation planting tactics that can be used to reduce the goose population in Stuemer Park. Low-impact recreational activities, including fishing, will be allowed in part of the north and east islands – about 11 per cent of the total area – and also part of the Grandmaitre Ecological Reserve. Non-motorized boats and lowspeed boats with a maximum speed of five kilometres per hour will be allowed in the channel that separates the mainland from the islands. Beaching crafts anywhere other than designated boat launches will be discouraged. The city hasn’t allocated any more towards those goals yet.

Glebe Annex condo tower gets planning OK laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Despite opposition by Glebe Annex residents to an 18storey tower at Carling near Bronson – a property the developer said is a “difficult site” to build a condo –the planning committee approved the project on March 26. Several residents and representatives from community groups in the area repeatedly told the committee that the amount of intensification proposed is too much for what they describe as a low-rise neighbourhood. “(It shows) little regard for neighbours who have already chosen to make these neighbourhoods their own,” said Glebe Annex resident Brenda Quinlan. Taggart Homes plans to put the 59-metre tall condo tower on a site that’s currently zoned for nine and four storeys. There is currently an eight-storey office building and surface parking on the site, which spans much of the block between Clemow and Carling at Bronson Avenue. Taggart originally suggested a 24-storey building before reducing it to 20 and then 18 storeys. The proposal includes a podium that’s four storeys tall at the

street edge before stepping up to the fifth, sixth and seven storeys, topped with the tower. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko didn’t support the proposal, particularly because it’s a one-off rezoning. “This is giving intensification the bad name it now has, and that’s unfortunate,” he said. “We have to distinguish on what streets and in what locations we are allowing density.” Where to locate density in Ottawa is a challenge, said planning committee chairman Peter Hume. That’s because Ottawa has so many areas of single-family homes in its downtown. Robert Bell of the Dow’s Lake Residents’ Association said his group and community associations for the Glebe and Glebe Annex appreciated discussions with the developer on issues like parking and traffic. Those talks led to good improvements, like a commitment to route traffic directly onto the arterial streets rather than through the smaller, residential streets, as well as parking. “It’s desperate right now,” Bell said of the parking situation in the area. Taggart committed to including as much parking in the tower as the market dictates, which will probably be around one parking space per

unit, Bell said. Nick Busing, one of the people who works in the eight-storey Fitzsimmons Building next door, was also concerned about parking. Tenants of his building will have to share parking with the new condo, which will make it hard to find a space, he said. Not to mention, the tower would shadow its shorter neighbour, Busing said. It would have retail on the ground floor, even though it’s a “harsh” environment for a store to try and succeed, said Ted Fobert, a consultant from FoTenn working on behalf of Taggart. The new building is likely to add 47 more cars per hour during the morning traffic peak and 43 more vehicles per hour in the evening peak time. Chernushenko wondered how the city measures the cumulative impact on factors like traffic when it approves a series of rezoning applications in a neighbourhood. “The area might be able to handle this, but what about the next one?” asked the councillor, who was not in support of the project. “Is there a point at which we would or could say, ‘No, the infrastructure can’t handle any more?” Planning boss John Smit said the

An 18-storey condominium tower at 265 Carling Ave. has been given the OK by the planning committee, despite several residents and community groups saying its too much intensification for what they describe as a low-rise neighbourhood.

Beechwood ‘phoenix’ building set to rise from fire’s ashes Residents still concerned about less retail and too little visitor parking Laura Mueller

The city’s planning committee gave the OK to this building, designed by Prishram Jain from the Toronto firm TACT Architecture Inc., to replace the building at 19 Beechwood Ave. that was destroyed by fire in March of 2011. even if two of the 157 homes hosted a dinner party on the same night. “Under-providing parking for residents would be great, but not the short term-parking,” said Cliffe, adding that would be a preferable way to encourage the residents to use active forms of transportation.

Lindquist worried that Vaughn Street would become a trafficclogged bypass for people trying to get in and out of the building. The building’s design shows eight storeys with a partial ninth storey for a total of 27 metres – just under the limit imposed

EMC news - The site of the Beechwood Avenue fire is set to become home to a new building after the planning committee approved an eight-storey retail and condo structure. But New Edinburgh residents still worry that the 27-metre tall structure clad in light-coloured brick and glass won’t fit into their neighbourhood or offer the mix of small shops they came to rely on at the former retail strip. “We are very grateful to Minto for their interest in the site,” said David Sacks, the president of the New Edinburgh Community Alliance. “But in an effort to close the deal, has the city been willing to give away too much?” Calling the property just east of the St. Patrick Bridge a “focal point in the community,” another community member, Catherine Lindquist, also worried that the developer, Minto, is only planning for around three larger retail spaces in the building. Before a devastating fire destroyed the previous building in March of 2011, it housed 10 retailers, including a local food service, watch repair shop, dry cleaners, barber shop, diner and a Home Hardware store. “I can’t tell you how much people are missing that marketing, especially the hardware store … We do have a bit of a blank canvas to work with and we’re looking forward to that,” Lindquist said, adding that 19 Beechwood Ave. will be a “phoenix rising from the ashes.” But the project’s architect, Prishram Jain from the Toronto firm TACT Architecture Inc., assured councillors on the planning committee that the developer has not yet created a retail plan nor decided how to divide the approximately 1,622 square metres of retail space in the building. “The corner space will be a café or restaurant,” Jain said. “The rest has yet to be determined. The café spot will include a cutout in the corner of the building at Beechwood Avenue and MacKay Street that will serve as a patio, Jain said. Other residents were concerned about the traffic and parking issues the new complex would create. Minto plans to provide 157 below-ground parking spaces for the 157 residential units and five visitor parking spaces. There would be an additional 26 above-ground spots for the retail uses and 88 spaces for bicycles. Julie Cliffe told the planning committee that the visitor parking is a problem because it would be full

Centretown evolution plans gets green light Laura Mueller

EMC news - A rare, lastminute agreement between the Centretown community association’s executive and a group of developers did not impress some residents – or the city’s planning committee. The committee approved a new community design plan for the area on March 26 that was three years in the making. After working alongside the planners charged with leading the study, the Centretown Citizens Community Association formed an unheard-of alliance with a handful of property owners and developers represented by prominent planning consultants from FoTenn to offer their agreement on proposed changes to the plan during the committee’s meeting. “I think we all recognize that the process hasn’t been perfect,” association president Jordan Charbonneu. “We tried to come up with something worthy of Centretown.” The 13-point, seven-page document outlines suggested changes to the plan, including more protection for “heritage clusters” and a proposal to include opportunities for small public open spaces on private land as part of developments. The community-developer agreement also suggested jettisoning a plan to allow height exemptions for landmark citydefining buildings. But two Centretown residents waited throughout the day to tell the planning committee that the “agreement” reached by the association and developers was done in secret and doesn’t reflect residents views or their three years of participation in refining the Centretown plan. “Nothing more than a private deal reached between developer interests and self-

appointed negotiators,” said Centretown resident Deborah Hanscom. The deal was never publicized or endorsed by the community association’s members, including herself, Hanscom said – only the executive board. Neither councillors nor those in charge of drafting the city’s plan saw the agreement until a day or two before the committee met. Planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume said the association-developer plan and other suggestions made by delegates at planning committee will be reviewed by staff and councillors could choose to put those ideas to council as amendments when full council votes on the plan next month. BUILDING A DENSE COMMUNITY

The development of Ottawa’s downtown will follow a unique path due to the federal government’s restrictions on blocking the view of the Parliament buildings, said George Dark, the consultant in charge of the plan. Instead of buildings reaching the tallest heights in the and getting shorter farther away from downtown, the federal rules mean building heights in Ottawa will go the opposite way, Dark said. The plan suggests the tallest buildings – up to 25 storeys – should go on the outskirts of Centretown, around Catherine Street. Buildings of 16 to 21 storeys would be allowed in the north end of the core around Lisgar and Cooper streets, while most of the core of the neighbourhood would be allowed to have buildings of up to nine storeys. To make density work downtown, the city needs to come up with a logical plan

of how – and where – it will provide necessary services and access to amenities like recreation and schools as Centretown’s population continues to grow, Dark said. The plan includes allowing some commercial uses in the central core of the neighbourhood that’s currently zoned only for residential uses. That bothered the Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation, a non-profit housing group. Dark’s plan asks the city to allow zoning flexibility to encourage a couple of landmark structures to be built in Centretown. Those proposals would be subject to review by some sort of panel or competition to ensure they would make “an incredible addition to the public realm … the kind of thing you’d include in a book,” Dark said. “Just tall buildings would not qualify,” he added. The vibrancy of Ottawa’s core is also supported by the two low-rise “shoulder” neighbourhoods to its west and east (the Golden Triangle), and that should be protected, Dark’s plan says. MUSEUM PARK

By supporting the Centretown community design plan, Ottawa can send a message to the federal government that the city has a strong desire to see both the east and west lawns of the Museum of Nature restored as public park space, Dark said. The museum has said it has long-term plans to do that, but has not received funding support from the federal government needed to build an underground parking garage. The east lawn is currently paved as the museum’s parking lot and last year, the west lawn was converted into temporary staff parking.

Fentanyl dose, availability may be cut: expert Locally abused drug could be de-listed by province Nevil Hunt

nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC news - An expert on a national drug panel believes the Ontario government may reduce access to fentanyl through dosing limits and by removing the drug from the list of those available under the provincial drug plan. Fentanyl is a manmade opioid that is up to 100 times more powerful than morphine and comes in patch form in doses up to 100 micrograms. The patch is meant to slowly deliver the drug to patients dealing with chronic pain over a period of 48 to 72 hours. Fentanyl has caused addiction and death when people smoke the gel inside the patch, which delivers the patch’s full dose in a few breaths. The Manotick community has

seen the drug misused locally and one young man died in 2012 after smoking the drug. A string of home break-ins was also linked to fentanyl abusers who needed money to buy the drug. Dr. Meldon Kahan, medical director of the Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, is a member of a national group that released First Do No Harm: Responding to Canada’s Prescription Drug Crisis. The report, released on March 27 in Ottawa, lays out a 10-year national strategy to reduce the harms caused by prescription drug abuse. In response to questions about Fentanyl abuse in south Ottawa, federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq refused to say if a prescription drug could be removed from the market as a result of the expert committee’s work. “It’s a complex process,” Aglukkaq said of the panel’s ongoing research and future recommendations, adding that ensuring patients have access to drugs they need is important. Kahan called fentanyl “convenient but dangerous,” and suggested an outright federal

that Ontario will unilaterally address the abuse of the drug in this province. “Maybe the 100-microgram (fentanyl) patch is not the safest option,” Kahan said during the press conference as the First Do No Harm report was released. “It may not simply be a matter of Health Canada banning a particular product.” Following the press conference, Kahan said he believes Ontario’s Health Ministry is reviewing the dose limits on fentanyl, which could see the amount of drug per patch reduced. That could reduce the amount of the drug redirected to people who misuse fentanyl. More importantly, Kahan said Ontario could remove coverage of fentanyl from the provincial drug plan. That would mean doctors could still prescribe the drug, but patients whose drugs are paid for by the province would have to pay for fentanyl out of their own wallets. That could prompt many legitimate fentanyl users to request their doctor to prescribe painkillers in other forms, reducing the amount available for misuse. “It’s up to the (provincial) Ministry (of Health) to rethink these very carefully,” Kahan

said of fentanyl’s dosage and financial coverage. Earlier, Kahan said Ontario has seen a big jump in the number of people seeking treatment for opiate addiction.

We’ve seen an increase in substance abuse in Ontario ... People are dying. Dr. Meldon Kahan medical director Women’s College Hospital

“We’ve seen an increase in substance abuse in Ontario, with treatment for opiates doubling between 2004 and 2009,” he said, adding that treatment resources haven’t kept up with demand. “People are dying.” CHANGES EXPECTED

The co-chairs of the National Advisory Council on Prescription Drug Misuse said all Canadians have a part to play in reducing the misuse of drugs, starting in the nation’s bathrooms. Carolyn Davison of Nova Scotia’s health de-

partment said the medicine cabinets of friends and family are the source of many drugs that end up being abused. First Do No Harm includes 58 recommendations and more are expected as the panel continues its work. In the short term, Canadians can expect to see more public education about safe storage of prescription drugs. Michel Perron is CEO of the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, which partnered with the NAC to produce First Do No Harm. “Canadians have an increasing appetite for these drugs,” he said of opiates, adding that it remains important to get drugs to those who need them. “But the situation cannot carry on as it is. First Do No Harm is a roadmap to change and a clear signal of where we need to go and how to get there.” NAC co-chair Dr. Susan Ulan of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta said First Do No Harm has clear objectives. “Our goal is to get the right medication to the right people for the right reasons,” Ulan said.

At night, using the outhouse was a scary proposition

D

uring the day, the outhouse held little terror for me. It was at night, when it was pitch black outside, that I dreaded the small clapboard building that sat like a sentry behind a cluster of cedar trees in our back yard. Mother hated the outhouse for an entirely different reason. After living in New York for 18 years, she thought going outside to the bathroom was right up there with drinking tea from a saucer or wearing a soiled apron when company came to the back door. “Uncivilized. That’s all it is, just plain uncivilized,” was her constant lament. Well, we had no choice out there in the back woods of Renfrew County. Our chances of having a flush toilet, like my little friend Joyce had in her brick house, were absolutely nil. We had no running water and there was no electricity or telephone. The very thought of having a flush toilet in the house was like dreaming the Depression wasn’t happening! For the longest time when

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories I was very little, I remember our outhouse having only one hole. But eventually, after Mother complained endlessly, a new one was built by Old Herman, who was considered an outhouse authority out there in Northcote for reasons which escaped me at the time. It was after the second hole was built that my sister Audrey pointed out the bevelled seat Old Herman was famous for. Well, the bevelled seat did little to endear the outhouse to Mother and did less for me, who still dreaded going out once night had settled in. Old Herman had put a latch on both the inside and outside of the door too, which was a vast improvement over the stone on the floor that you shoved with your foot to keep the door

closed once you got seated. Yes, the new outhouse was an improvement, but Mother still lamented daily about how it was “an uncivilized way of life” which she never quite got used to. My friend Joyce also had a store-bought roll of real toilet paper in her indoor bathroom. It hung on a wire holder on the wall and even when I didn’t have to go, I never failed to use the bathroom when I visited her house. I would reef off a piece of that store-bought toilet paper, just to witness the sheer luxury of the whole experience. Our toilet paper was the no-longer current issue of the Eaton’s catalogue. Father would drive a spike through the upper left corner of the thick book and feed a

piece of heavy binder-twine through the hole, and hang it on a nail on the inside near the door. An entire page was never fully torn out, and by the time the catalogue was well used up, it was almost useless. But it was all we had. Well, except at Christmas time.This was when Mother would ask Mr. Briscoe if she could have the little orange wrappers that came around the oranges he brought in to his General Store only at Christmas. They were only about six inches square, but she would iron them flat and put them in the back-to-the-wall cupboard in a neat little pile and they replaced the Eaton’s catalogue in the outhouse only when we had company. We children were well warned not to use the orange papers -- they were there for a higher clientele. A big pail of lime sat in a corner of the little black outhouse and we were instructed to use a dipper of it often. I confess, I found that chore had little appeal to me. During the day, I had little fear of going into the

warn me to stay clear of the coyotes or the big black bear he assured me would like nothing better than to haul a young girl off to the bush. So going out to the outhouse became a constant challenge for me once it got dark at night. There was always the Johnny pot under the bed, but to use it before we retired was out of the question. It was there for emergencies, Mother said. I couldn’t think of a more dire emergency than forcing a young terrified girl out in the dark at night to go to the privy. Like the silos that were on every farm, the tin mailboxes at the end of the lanes, the hay lofts, the pumps over the wells in the middle of the yards and piles of manure at the back of every barn, the outdoor privy was very much a sign of the times during the 1930s. Each very much a necessity for our very survival.

outhouse, but once it got dark at night, I was filled with dread. So as soon as the daylight started to fade, I made awfully sure I made a trip out behind the trees to the little building. But the very thought of going through the entire night without emptying my bladder was all it took to create an urgent need. This was when I would beg Audrey to come with me. She thought I was old enough at five or six to go on my own, so I would ask her to light the lantern even thought it had yet to get absolutely dark out. I would go through the summer kitchen and then the wood shed, a long-about way of getting there, because that way I was under cover for most of the trip. My brother Emerson, whose mission in life seemed to be to scare the living daylights out of me every chance he got, would always

Convent condo construction allowed 24/7 this month Noise bylaw exemption does not mean contractors allowed to make loud noise: Hobbs Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Construction of a controversial condo tower at the former convent site in Westboro will be allowed to continue 24 hours a day for the month of April. City council approved the noisebylaw exemption for the site at 114

Richmond Rd. during its March 27 meeting and waived the rules of procedure to accommodate the lastminute request from Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs. The exemption will allow the developer, Ashcroft, to continue three types of work later than 11 p.m., which is the normal cutoff for construction noise.

But Hobbs was quick to caution that the exemption does not mean contractors will be allowed to make loud noise – the exemption allows workers to make a noise, which could be anything from them walking around the site to the hum of machinery. “There is no decibel level that’s OK … any noise at all is an infraction,” Hobbs said. “It’s not like we’re saying you’re allowed to make a loud noise.” Pumps operated by gas-powered motors will be allowed to run 24/7 to remove water from the site and prevent flooding, Hobbs said. The pumps must keep running continuously until the lower portions of the new structure are connected to the city’s storm sewer system. “Otherwise the area will flood and who knows what could happen to the adjoining neighbours,” Hobbs said. The pumps make a humming noise, Hobbs said. They’ve been running for weeks with no complaints from the public, she added, acknowledging that its possible the pumps began running 24/7 before the contractor sought and received the required bylaw exemption from

the city. “I don’t know what went on there before but I know they have been doing it,” Hobbs said, referring to pumping water. Representatives from Ashcroft and the city were unavailable to confirm this before deadline. The city doesn’t take construction bylaw infractions lightly, if that’s the case, Hobbs said. Fines would be imposed and there can be other penalties. The second exemption allows gas-powered heaters to run 24 hours a day in order to keep freshly poured concrete above freezing in order for it to cure properly. The city also approved an exemption to allow workers to continue using gas-fired motorized trowel machines to be used to finish the surface of the concrete slab floors. That work must be done after each slab is poured until the optimum finish is achieved. That normally continues in the evening of the day the concrete is poured and might take longer than would normally be allowed under the noise bylaw. From May 1 until Aug. 23, construction work at the site will be allowed to continue until 2 a.m. from

Monday to Friday. Allowing any amount of noise at night is not ideal, Hobbs said, but it’s better than slowing down the work and forcing it to continue for a longer period. “My heart goes out to the people living there,” she said, adding that she has lived beside a construction site and knows how unpleasant it can be. The condo to be built on the site of the former Soeurs de la Visitation convent caused considerable conflict when it was proposed. Westboro residents strongly fought the project and urged the city to preserve the historic site, which features a 135year-old abbey. Parts of the site, including the abbey, will be kept and repurposed as part of the development, called Q West. Tensions around the construction are still running high as some residents feel maligned that their concerns have been overlooked by Ashcroft and the city, Hobbs said. Her office receives many complaints ranging from issues with the security fence and idling trucks on Leighton Terrace to workers starting hammering before 9 a.m. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

TOWN CENTRE ZONING Community members working with me, the landowner and the City on this zoning is an example of how community involvement can work to benefit all. Many thanks to the community members for their hours of dedicated work, to Urbandale for listening and making the changes that were crucial for the community and to City Planners who modified their views to suit the community issues. With a final amendment we worked out the morning of the Planning Committee meeting, the zoning was approved with the support of the community. Site plans for actual developments will be discussed with the community as they come forward to ensure implementation is in accord with the provisions that were made. IDEA CAMPAIGNS Now is your opportunity to tell the City how you want consultation with you to proceed and to determine how our Kanata North Business Park should develop. Just go to http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/public-consultations/publicengagement/public-engagement-strategy-and-consultations for the City’s Idea Campaign and www.kanatanorthbia.ca for ideas on the future of the business park. This is your chance to make a difference so do participate. SPRING AND OUR PARKS The snow is rapidly melting and our streets and parks show the impact of winter. There should be no doggy poo anywhere but some residents are not picking up and taking it home for disposal. Responsible dog owners pick up after their dogs. Those who pick it up and throw their bag on the ground or in park litter containers are adding to the problem. Be responsible and keep our parks, pathways and streets clean. Everyone can help get ready for spring (yes it’s coming) by registering for Cleaning the Capital and doing your bit to clean things up and remove graffiti. Go to www.ottawa.ca/clean for information on how to participate. Working together will keep our community looking great. COMMUNITY NOTICES Community Recognition Awards – visit my website and nominate someone who has made our community better Beaverbrook Library Construction - is now underway so drive slowly and carefully there.

University of Ottawa students Bushra Khan, 21, left, and Rebekah Schultz, 20, are co-chairing this year’s Spirit Awards, which recognize Ottawa youth from ages 12 to 21. Winners receive $500 and runners-up $200 to be put towards education or towards a cause or project they champion if they are not attending post-secondary school. Khan won a Spirit Award herself in 2009 for her community in caring campaign for the public school board, and stayed involved with the organization. Schultz volunteered two years ago at the event, and then joined the planning committee the following year. The entire organizing committee for the youth awards is made up of Ottawa youth. This is the second year that the pair have co-chaired the awards, but the first year for the gala to be held at the Convention Centre. They have also streamlined the application process, making a new application that isn’t as labour intensive. Organizers are pushing to include more youth in the upper end of the age spectrum this year, with both of the capital’s universities as title sponsors. The 16 youth honoured, two in each cate-

gory, will no doubt each have their own story of overcoming obstacles or creating projects, the co-chairs said. “The youth being recognized are incredible,” said Schultz. For more information on the Spirit of the Capital Awards or to purchase tickets for the May 21 gala, visit www.spiritawards.ca.

EMC news - The Spirit of the Capital awards are shaping up for their 16th year – but with new award categories and a new gala location. This year’s co-chairs, University of Ottawa students Bushra Khan, 21 and Rebekah Schultz, 20, have been volunteering at Youth Ottawa – formerly Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa – to revamp the event to support the organization’s new name. The new award categories, such as global innovation, reflect the growing variety of projects youth are involved in, and a more accurate representation of projects older youth are involved in. The awards are open to youth 12 to 21 from Ottawa. “It’s a hidden Ottawa tradition,” said Khan, who is from Craig Henry. “We’re trying to cater to not just the all-stars. It’s important to recognize the small things.” Youth who win each award, and the runner up, will be invited to a meet and greet with one another ahead of time, and then the gala awards event at the downtown Ottawa Convention Centre on May 21. This year, the evening will host a mix and mingle-style reception to give the award winners a chance to network with community leaders. This year, both Mayor Jim Watson and former governor general Michaëlle Jean will be attending. Ottawa beatboxer Julia Dales, along with other local youth, will also be performing at the gala. The eight-person committee has been accepting nominations until September, and will take them until April 8. They then work with the Youth Ottawa board to select the winners. “Some people think that youth are lazy,” said Schultz. “These are events to recognize youth that are phenomenal. For adults, it’s eye-opening.”

All guests must be 19 years of age or older with valid gov’t issued photo ID to enter the SLOTS & Dining Room; everyone 19-25 will be required to show a second piece of non-photo ID.

Blazers host Ski Icehawks of Norway The Kanata Blazers bantam minor AA team hosted a friendly game against the Ski Icehaws of Norway on March 27 at Scotiabank Place. The Blazers won 2-0, with goals by Alex Caparelli and Cooper Desbiens. The special event was organized by Blazers assistant coach Bruno Carchidi and his friend from Norway, Guy Lalande, assistant coach for the Icehawks.

EMC news - The United Way Ottawa announced the official tally for its 2012-13 fundraising campaign on March 25, revealing it had surpassed its goal. The United Way raised $30,334,000 as part of its latest efforts, exceeding the $30 million goal the United Way set in September. United Way board chairman Jamie McCracken took the opportunity to congratulate donors and campaign volunteers for their efforts. “This is an amazing total for this year’s campaign,” he said.

United Way Ottawa shows off its community campaign fundraising total on March 25. ple in a different setting than through the city lens. “You think you know your community, until you go out there,” Fleury said. “With United Way it’s a different perspective, people are more open, conversations are much different ... It gives you a different insight.”

Fleury and Poirier were dubbed leaders of the next generation of donors and made it their personal goal for this year’s campaign to take to social media to help promote the campaign. “Your heart and your spirit have made such a difference,” McCracken said. “You have given light to the

role each of us can play in improving the lives of others and to the power we have collectively to improve our community in the long term.” More than 1,000 workplaces were involved in the campaign. Innovapost and PCL Constructors Canada Inc. attended the event, highlighting their own successes in the campaign.

The organization changed the way the way it allocates money raised from its annual campaign more than two years ago, crafting priorities and funding criteria in order to appeal to donors. Although the campaign was extended for the first time this year, adding 10 more weeks for donors to contribute, the amount raised for the funding of those priority goals fell short in the end. McCracken explained this is in part because unrestricted donations continue to decline. The United Way appealed to donors at the announcement to help raise the remaining shortfall of $800,000 before the campaign is officially complete on March 31. The campaign volunteers were taking to the phones to call previous donors who had yet to give. “We are still hopeful,” McCracken said. Campaign co-chairs Mathieu Fleury, councillor for Rideau-Vanier and Angie Poirier, a Majic 100 and CTV Ottawa Morning Live host, were on hand to celebrate the total and reflect on the campaign. Fleury said he enjoyed the opportunity to meet organizations and peo-

GCTC turns to crowd-funding Goal is $25-K shortfall Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

The Great Canadian Theatre Company is looking for online donations to pay off the company’s construction debt.

EMC news - The Great Canadian Theatre Company is adopting a modern take on fundraising as its latest capital building campaign drive kicks off. Launched March 20, the twomonth campaign will solicit community donations via crowd-funding site Indiegogo to help eliminate its building fund shortfall. The campaign’s goal is $25,000. GCTC artistic director Eric Coates said that using the increasingly popular website would allow them to find new sources of donations.

“It’s suddenly becoming the popular way for people to raise money for independent projects,” said Coates. “We can’t constantly go back to the same pool of donors – we needed to expand it.” When the GCTC moved into the new Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre in 2007, significant cost overruns totalling $1.6 million were incurred, leaving the company struggling to eliminate the unexpected debt. While that debt has since been lowered to $500,000, it still burdens the company’s operations. “It’s hampered our ability to operate in terms of long-term plans,” said Coates, adding the company has to trim its operating budgets to pay down the debt. “Until we get the debt down, the annual operating plans will be compromised. What started out as

$1.6 million is down to $500,000, but that’s still way too much to be carrying.” The Indiegogo campaign – which ends May 19 – aims to make donating easy, and has the ability to reach more people, especially with the help of social media. It is also a good way of soliciting small donations, as contributions can be as little as $1. Increasingly, many Canadian theatre companies are turning to crowdfunding sites to finance elements of their operations. “When you pitch something like this to people, and put a specific number on it, it’s easier to participate,” said Coates, who will be ensuring visitors to the Wellington Street West theatre are made aware of the campaign. The donation site can be found at www.indiegogo.com/gctc.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Aries, some conflicting signals from a friend this week might seem like trouble is ahead. But it’s more likely that your perception of the situation is a little off. Taurus, your imagination has a life of its own this week. You may be thinking of living on the edge a little bit in the next few days but don’t overdo it. Gemini, avoid a deep discussion about your feelings with someone at work this week. Now is not the time or the place to share anything personal, so keep it professional.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 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!

Resin-like shellac ingredient 55. Semitic fertility god 56. 60’s hairstyle 59. Honey Boo Boo’s network 60. Soak flax 61. Volcanic mountain in Japan 63. Point midway between E and SE

Libra, you know what you want and do not need anyone’s approval, but you can’t help checking in with a family member this week to get a second opinion. Scorpio, channel your romantic feelings into action this week. Act sooner rather than later and make the most of your emotions while they’re strong. Sagittarius, learn from the past but do not allow letdowns from the past to dictate your future. There is no guarantee that things will be repeated.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Cancer, don’t get sidetracked this week because coworkers are expecting your full attention and effort at the office. You may need to juggle a few responsibilities for the time being.

Capricorn, write things down this week before you say them to be sure you have everything correct. This will help you when you need to make an important announcement.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Leo, make sure you comments are not misinterpreted this week. Someone might take something the wrong way, so choose your words carefully. Virgo, you may be feeling great physically, but there is a nagging problem that you simply cannot identify. Give it time and it will come to the surface.

0404

Aquarius, you may feel like escaping to a fantasy world, but that does not mean the pressing matters will simply disappear. A vacation may recharge your batteries. You are in much better shape than you think you are, Pisces. So don’t be too hard on yourself this week. It is alright to put your feet up.

Hillcrest band greet pandas on their arrival from China Eddie Rwema

eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – If there is a day the Hillcrest High School band will never forget, it is March 25, when they performed O Canada as a FedEx cargo plane transporting a pair of giant pandas touched down at Toronto’s Pearson Airport. China is allowing two of its giant pandas to spend five years at the Toronto Zoo followed immediately by another five years at the Calgary Zoo, marking the first time in more than 20 years that a giant panda has been loaned to a Canadian zoo and a first for a ten-year loan from the Chinese government. The pandas were the sole cargo on a FedEx cargo plane that flew halfway around the world from Chengdu Shuangliu to Toronto. Fifty students who make up the high school concert band left Ottawa at 4 a.m to participate in the ceremony, after it was announced they had won the FedEx Canada Panda contest. FedEx will also be donating $5,000 to Hillcrest High School for winning the contest. Music teacher, Jeannie Hunter described the experience as humbling. “This is such a wonderful opportunity. Our success is a tribute to

Hillcrest High School band members perform O Canada as a FedEx cargo plane transporting a pair of giant pandas touched down at Toronto’s Pearson Airport. the kids’ creativity and our Hillcrest community’s support,” said Hunter, adding that the band was proud to represent Ottawa at the event. The schools were required to submit a video of their band or choir performing any song for them to have the chance to win the contest. “We really didn’t have a lot of planning time since we got to know the details on Thursday, one day before the March break,” said Hunter. “We shot it before lunch on Friday, edited it, uploaded it and that was it.”

FedEx spokesperson Adrian Grundy said coordination of the panda shipment from Chengdu to Toronto took “more than 100 people” on two continents, and that the bears will be kept in “specially designed enclosures” for the duration of their more than 11,700-kilometre journey. “Obviously it caters for their needs to go to the toilet,” he said. “And it’s only carrying the pandas and their travelling bamboo and things like that.” The bears will also have water, apples, some favourite toys, two atten-

dants and a veterinarian with them every step of the way. Teacher Hunter said the $5,000 donation is a sizeable chunk of money, certainly far more than her budget. “It is going to allow us to make a few legacy purchases,” she said. Hunter added that students will have a say on how that money is spent. “It will be a collective decision with the kids and me,” she said. Five-year-old Er Shun and fouryear-old Da Mao will be quarantined for 30 days at Toronto Zoo and kept

away from the public until a special exhibit opens later this year. Besides winning the contest, the Hillcrest band were also awarded passes for the zoo to go back once the panda exhibits opens. “I felt a sense of disbelief in some ways when I figured out we had won, because it all happened so quickly,” said Hunter. She said the competition has energized her and the band even more. “I feel excited and motivated. It’s been great for the school spirit. It was a fantastic opportunity to bring everyone together,” said Hunter. She hailed FedEx for running the contest. “It is fantastic that FedEx thought of doing it and donating the money to a high school music program,” said Hunter. “The arts are so important and funding can be so difficult. It’s great that they thought of this as an opportunity to help other people as well.” She said the entire experience was a great surprise for her. “It is quite an unusual opportunity to play O Canada for two giant pandas,” said Hunter. “It wasn’t something that was even in my mind and then boom it happened.” With files from Torstar Wire Services

Jeff Morrison, board president at the Centretown Community Health Centre, speaks on March 25. Nine health centres and resource centres, including the Centretown Community Health Centre, oppose the proposed Ottawa casino.

Casinos do more harm than good, say community health centres Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Community health groups and resource centres say the way to stop the side effects of gambling is to eliminate the problem in the first place. Nine different centres from Ottawa held a press conference on March 25 to talk about their opposition to Ottawa’s potential future casino. Jeff Morrison, board president at the Centretown Community Health Centre, said Ottawa has failed to engage in a dialogue about the issues that come with gambling, unlike Toronto, where discussions have talked about risks. “We’re distracted by things like location,” he said. “Location is not a factor. We see these questions as a distraction from what the debate should be.” Morrison said that the nine centres who oppose the proposal all see the negative impacts of gambling on a daily basis. Problem gambling disproportionately affects certain groups that may already be disadvantaged, including low income individuals, older adults, newcomers to Canada and Aboriginal peoples, a press release issued by the group of centres said.

Each centre’s board passed their own individual motion opposing the casino. While the city is looking at the casino as a potential money maker, Morrision said that the revenue will partially be revenue taken away from other Ottawa entertainment businesses. “Let’s be clear, casino revenues do not come out of thin air,” he said, adding that 30 to 40 per cent of casino revenues come from the 3 per cent of the population with gambling problems. While the group said they are firm in their no casino opinion, if a casino does come in, members strongly urge the city to look at measures to protect citizens. Morrison said that similar standards have been put in place on items like alcohol, which can’t be sold after a certain hour. Measures could include removing ATMs on site, and forcing a closing time on the casino. The lack of public consultation on the casino has been troubling, he said. The group of centres is prepared to move forward in facilitating more discussion about the risks of the city putting a casino in. Some options for gambling in the city are available at the Rideau Carleton Raceway.

Morrision said the group isn’t opposed to the current operations remaining, as long as no additional capacity is added. The groups hope that Ottawa Public Health will take a position against the casino, as Toronto Public Health has done. Toronto’s medical officer of health said that introducing a new casino in Toronto would have greater adverse health related impacts than benefits. “If you can reduce access to gambling in the first place, then the problem isn’t there to be solved,” Morrison said. Groups opposing the casino proposal are:

• Centretown Community Health Centre • Eastern Ottawa Community Resource Centre • Lowertown Community Resource Centre • Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre • Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre • Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre • Sandy Hill Community Health Centre • Somerset West Community Health Centre • South-East Ottawa Community Health Centre

Organ donation volunteers honoured for their efforts emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - “There’s nothing better than saving lives.” This is the mantra of Lyn and David Presley, a Manotick couple who have dedicated a large part of the last seven years advocating for organ donation and kidney research. David has end-stage renal disease, which means he must be on dialysis until he can have a kidney transplant. He has been on the waiting list for a kidney since 2005. Since the diagnosis, the retired couple has been working tirelessly for the Kidney Foundation and the Trillium Gift of Life Network to promote organ donor registration. “I was sitting in that waiting room and I saw a picture of the Living Green Ribbon (organ donation campaign) on Parliament Hill,” said Lyn. “I thought we should try and educate people to some degree.” At the time, the pair was organizing the Super Ex at Lansdowne Park. That year they spearheaded bringing the Living Green Ribbon campaign to the summer carnival. It became quite a hit, David said, and they haven’t stopped advocating for the cause ever since. “Any opportunity we have, we go out and promote,” Lyn said. “We do fundraisers whenever something

comes along that seems reasonable.” For all that hard work, the Presleys were honoured in March along with a number of other volunteers from across the province at a volunteer summit hosted by the Trillium Gift of Life Network. The award was for the bulldogs of the province, the ones who are constantly hammering away at raising registration rates, Lyn said. That certainly applies to the Presleys. They spend about 20 hours a week at grocery stores, community events, fundraisers and fairs promoting organ donation and kidney research. They share stories with those who stop by their booth, and encourage others to sign up to be a donor. It doesn’t take much to make them feel like they’re making a difference. “If we just reach one person, it’s up to eight people saved,” Lyn said. “Then we feel our whole weekend was a success.” They split their time advocating for kidney research and organ donation, because to them the issue is one and the same. “The only solution to kidney disease is a transplant, so it’s hard to distinguish where one ends and the other begins,” David said. Besides, those needing a new kidney are the largest group on the organ donation waiting list.

“More people are waiting for a kidney than any other organ,” Lyn said. “So if you’re going to promote for kidneys, you’re really promoting for everybody.” The provincial organ donor registration rate is 22 per cent. Ottawa is not much better at 24 per cent, and the greater Toronto area barely registers above 10 per cent. The problem, Lyn said, is that many people think carrying a signed donor card in their wallet means they’re registered. Not so, she said. To be truly registered with the Gift of Life Network donors must visit www.beadonor.ca and submit to a two-minute online registration process. A practical problem for the Presleys is making sure people remember to go online and sign up. Without a laptop or tablet to help them register people on the spot, it’s hard to know if people remember to register once they get home. “We need a laptop really badly,” Lyn said. “We don’t want to do a fundraiser just for that, but if we had one we could register them right there.” The one time they did have a borrowed laptop, they registered about six people over one hour – enough to save up to 48 people. Currently there are about 1,500

Cancelled Metcalfe play gets new life in Little Italy Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - A Metcalfe mother-daughter team will finally give their play the stage it deserves. For one night only, the Just Kiddin Theatre play Private Thoughts will be performed at the Gladstone Theatre in Little Italy this June, after the production was cancelled in Metcalfe unexpectedly last May. “I’m really excited because in retrospect the subject matter is so different than what Just Kiddin Theatre usually does,” said executive director Andrie Nel, who co-wrote the play with her teenaged daughter, Sydney. “It belongs in a professional theatre, not in our playful kids’ style. I’m happy it’s going to get the audience it should have and we get to do it well.” The play explores the difference between a person’s private thoughts and what they say out loud, and how that can cause all varieties of miscommunication. Although two storylines are relatively light-hearted, a third deals with a teen’s private thoughts about suicide. The children’s theatre troupe is holding auditions for two teenage girl roles this Saturday, April 6, as well as the theatre’s first ever adult role. Nel said that most of the play’s original actors are returning for the summer performance, but several others must be replaced. “That worked out well because it was the actors playing the adults that couldn’t return,” she said. “Adults playing adults in this context is going to be much stronger.”

Nel and her husband will play a couple who struggle to communicate, causing themselves a lot of avoidable grief. Saturday’s auditions for George, the husband’s arrogant brother, will cast the third adult role. Private Thoughts was cancelled last May after its partner YouthNet, a youth mental health intervention program run through CHEO, withdrew its support for the play’s content. Nel had partnered with YouthNet to make sure the suicide storyline sent the right message to any youth performing or watching the play. But the week before the production was due to start at the Metcalfe Town Hall, YouthNet withdrew its support on the grounds that the play – particularly its ending – could be a trigger. “We were faced with this decision that the optics of them backing out made us feel we were putting the organization at risk,” Nel said. “Should anything have happened as a result of the play, the optics of having this mental health organization pull out would just expose us too much.” However taking the play out of a children’s theatre and putting it onto a professional stage is another matter. “Now it’s a provocative piece of theatre, and that’s what theatre’s about. It’s entirely appropriate,” Nel said. Just Kiddin’s play will take the stage Saturday, June 29. Having access to a professional stage with proper lights and facilities will be a good experience for the younger actors, she added. Auditions will be held at 1 p.m. in Metcalfe on April 6. Contact andrie@justkiddintheatre. com to arrange an audition.
