Kanata runners escape injury at Boston Marathon Blair Edwards and Steve Newman

EMC news – Steve Morin was a block away from the finish line of the Boston Marathon when the bombs went off. He never heard a thing – at the time he was receiving a massage in the John Hancock building, along with several other runners who had completed the 42-kilometre race on April 15. Morin, an engineer who works at Alcatel-Lucent in Kanata, had finished the race earlier that day and was recovering. A manager announced an “incident had just occurred” and all runners were asked to proceed away from the finish line area. “We were all asked to leave and went upstairs on the streets,” said Morin. “The streets were just crazy with people in shock and you could smell the bomb blast,” he said. It was impossible to walk on the roads, he said, with the streets flooded with SWAT teams, ambulance and other emergency workers. “People were crying,” he said. “They said there were body parts everywhere.” Morin said he tried not to look at the area JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND of the bomb blast. He walked five kilometres to meet up with his family, who had accompanied him to watch the marathon.

EMC news - A plan to build a day care and family entertainment centre near the Eagleson park and ride has left a few members of the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association feeling unnerved. The development proposal was discussed by residents during a meeting of the association on April 8. Long and McQuade Ltd. is seeking a zoning amendment for a piece of property on 66 Hearst Way, which is now used by Dufresne Furniture. The application calls for remodelling the 4,235-squaremetre building into a family entertainment centre run by Kids Kingdom, which will include a “café/snack bar, party rooms and an arcade.” “I don’t think anybody has a problem with a day care or music store, but an arcade would be a problem,” said Katimavik resident Maureen Taylor. “Once the zoning definition is changed it can’t go back.” Taylor said her main concern is the age group that the arcade will attract. “As it stands now it is aimed at kids but what happens if that

Another area of contention is the building’s proximity to a parole office located at 10 Hearst Way. “It is not too much of a stretch to think that people coming from the parole office with time to kill will be hanging out there,” said association president Rod Maclean. Katimavik resident Jim Badour said he isn’t opposed to the

idea of a day care or music store. “We just want clarification as to why the zoning needs to be changed,” he said. Badour compared the proposal to existing businesses like Fun Haven in Nepean. “These types of fun centers are usually located in industrial parks and are close to restaurants where people can go blow off some steam after they leave,” said Badour. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said residents have nothing to worry about. “We need day care spots in

Kanata and I am willing to look at all applications,” he said. Hubley said that just because the proposal includes the wording arcade doesn’t mean it will be supported when it comes to committee. “I will not be approving any application that suggests a pinball arcade or pool hall, neither one of those businesses would be welcomed into the community,” said Hubley. The Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association’s next meeting will be held May 6 at Katimavik Elementary School.

Ottawa runners race online for news about marathoners Along the way, Morin received texts from concerned friends and family members. “Everyone was texting me to ask if I was OK,” he said. “I texted them I was fine.” Morin said runners were having trouble making calls on their cellphones, but were able to send out texts. “We relied on strangers and borrowed their cellphones and got a lot of help from Boston people – they were very friendly.” Morin said he hopes the tragedy won’t hurt the marathon in the future. “I’m trying to figure this out today,” he said, a day after the event. “I don’t think it will stop people from doing it (competing in marathons). I think it will unite people around not letting the terrorists affect how we behave.” BOMB

No Kanata runners were injured after two bomb blasts killed two people and left more than 100 injured at the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15. Nine Kanata residents were registered to compete in the annual 42kilometre event, and more than 2,000 Canadians were in Boston for the race. No Canadians were injured at the marathon, according to the Ministry of Foreign of Affairs on April 15.

Jane Armstrong, a Kanata Lakes woman who trains runners in duathlon, triathlon and running events, was at home watching the results live via the Internet the day of the race. She was tracking the results of two of her students as well as some of her friends from Ottawa’s running community competing in the event. One of her students, Jenny Hopkins had already finished the race with a time of three hours and 29 minutes – her other student, Terri Bolster, still had more than an hour before she would reach the finish line. “I stopped at one point, went for a run and a bike workout for one hour around the time of the explosion,” said Armstrong. When she returned to check the race results on the computer, the website listed Bolster as having completed 40 kilometres. “I could tell she was running strong so I was puzzled,” said Armstrong. Then the emails and phone calls started pouring in. “What’s going on in Boston, Jane? Do you know?” read one email. Armstrong then checked for media reports, and learned bombs had gone off near the finish line. “Then I panicked,” she said. “Terry had to be close to the explosion or right in the thick of it.” Armstrong went to her Facebook home page, where she was connected with hundreds of runners and running groups, and left messages for her two students. “I knew Jenny had her phone with her, I said please call me.”


Both students eventually responded that they were alive and unhurt. “Both of them said they’re happy to be alive and well.” Bolster, a 62-year-old Orléans woman and a retired teacher, said she’d been one kilometre away from the finish line when the bombs went off. “All the runners were panicked,” Bolster later told Armstrong. The streets near the finish line were shut down and congested with people and the runners were forced to stop. “They were freezing,” said Armstrong. “They started to shiver, muscles were seizing up. A stranger gave (Bolster) a sweatshirt to stay warm.” LOCKDOWN

Renfrew County marathoners are shaken, after two bomb blasts left three people dead and more than 100 others injured at Monday’s Boston Marathon. Stewart Campbell, a former Renfrew resident who now lives in Pembroke, celebrated his 55th birthday by

Earlier in the race, Bobeldijk stopped to use one of the race course portable washrooms, which Campbell said may have saved his life. Most worrisome for Bobeldijk was that he knew his wife Arpick was waiting for him near the finish line. It was only when they found each other, and embraced, that he was able to relax. “Everyone (of my friends here) was worried because they knew I would come in about this time,” he said. “It was emotional to see each other alive,” he said. Bobeldijk also emailed his daughter in Pembroke and son in Vancouver Volunteers to let them know he was okay.

The 15-year-olds won first place in the intermediate life and health sciences category at the Ottawa science fair and an all expenses paid trip to the Canada-wide competition. Their project looked at the effects of silica gel on algae cells, studying the algae’s performance during photosynthesis. Arianna and Samantha created gas collection apparatuses to measure the amount of oxygen created by the algae, both with and without silica gel. They left the cells overnight, then heated them up for 15 minutes, in effect, “killing” the cells. “After waiting for about a week, we noticed there was a great difference in the amount of oxygen produced,” said Arianna. The uncoated algae produced 15 millilitres of oxygen while the coated cells produced 60 millilitres. “Since you’re killing them and they’re still working, people call them zombies,” said Arianna. “When you put the silica on a cell and then kill it, the cell activity (is) in-

Senior science and biology teacher Shawn Sutcliffe said he’s really proud of all the students who put together projects and experiments. “This is the real science,” he said. “They know what the outcome is going to be (in class labs). Here, they don’t.” All Saints had seven entries in total, with two first place wins, a silver and a bronze finish. “It’s amazing the effort the students put into preparing,” he said.

Scouts perform a Good Turn Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Two Kanata Scouts braved the snow, slush and dipping temperatures on April 12 to kick off Good Turn Week. Fifteen-year-olds Derek Smith and Camden Sutherland, Venturers with the 1st Kanata Scouts group, walked around the Kanata Centrum performing random acts of kindness for strangers. A red Good Turn bracelet is given to every person the Scouts do a kindness for; the recipient is asked to perform a nice gesture for someone else and continue to pass along the bracelet. “It’s the whole pay it forward (idea),” said Derek. “I think it brings people together.” Derek and Camden bought a coffee for a customer to help ward off the winter chill, donated a large bag of non-perishables to the Kanata Food Cupboard – with bracelets in-

cluded – and held doors open for patrons who had their hands full. Camden said the winter weather that rolled in can make people’s jobs harder and lead to more frustration, but doing something nice and unexpected “makes you feel better,” he said. “Your spirits are lifted.” The 1st Kanata Scouts have 350 bracelets to hand out. “You don’t need a bracelet to do a good turn,” said Derek. SHARE

People who perform a kind act – whether they receive a bracelet or not – can share it by texting “Good Turn” with a description of their act to 51051, tweet their deed with the hashtag #GoodTurn, or submit it via “It can be anything, from the smallest thing,” said Derek. Bracelets have made it around the world, with people in Ireland, the United States and other areas run-

ning with the idea. Good Turn Week runs from April 13 to 21. The Scouting initiative was developed to encourage acts of compassion and friendliness across the country. More than 100,000 Scouts will pass out Good Turn bracelets. “Every Scout lives by the principle to always help others. With Good Turn Week, we simply ask Canadians to perform one act of kindness to help create a happier society,” said Kaylee Galipeau, national youth commissioner and chair of the national youth network for Scouts Canada. + * “The best part is that it works both ways – doing a Good Turn not only makes someone else’s day, but JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND the individual also reaps the reward 1st Kanata Scouts Venturer Camden Sutherland performs an act of through the gratifying feelings kindness by holding open a door for strangers.

EMC news - Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely’s complaint to the commissioner of official languages turns a fiscal decision into a language issue, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli. The move of nearly 10,000 Department of National Defence employees into the Carling Avenue campus that once housed Nortel was decided three years ago. The federal government bought the building for $208 million in 2010 and estimated there would be an additional $623 million in renovation costs to bring the building up to the Defence department’s needs. But McNeely said the federal government didn’t look at the social and economic costs of what he believes will be a mass migration to the west from Orléans. McNeely said the move would alter transit patterns because Orléans residents use public transit much more than people in Kanata or other westend suburbs. He added that under the Official Languages Act, the federal government is bound to protect Orléans because the community is composed of a unique, linguistic minority. Chiarelli said it wasn’t appropriate to make the move a French-versusEnglish debate. “We have spent money, done planning, now is not the time to challenge the move,” he said.

Friends of Hospice to join services under one roof Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Friends of Hospice Ottawa will be moving its services to one location in south Kanata after purchasing a large property. The organization recently bought Trinity Presbyterian Church on McCurdy Drive, said Alice Holst, hospice volunteer, during the monthly meeting of the Canadian Federation of University Women/ Kanata on April 10. “It’s got everything we need,” she said. The organization currently rents office space on Legget Drive in north Kanata. The move to the church will give it a permanent location without the need to pay rent. Friends of Hospice Ottawa plans to add a wing dedicated to hospice rooms on the property, which are used for those

ALICE HOLST who can no longer be cared for at home but don’t require complex care. The current building wouldn’t work as a hospice wing but “there is plenty of room to add hospice rooms,” said Holst, who has volunteered for the organization for almost three years. Instead, the current structure will house the day-to-day operations of the hospice or-

ganization. “(We will) use the existing building for services we provide now,” said Holst. “The building will house our admin and our training facility and our meeting facility and likely our day hospice facility.” Still in the preliminary stages, no dates were mentioned as to when the move and renovations would take place. Friends of Hospice Ottawa is a palliative care registered charity, serving residents of Kanata, Stittsville-Goulbourn, Nepean, West Carleton, Manotick and Kars. The organization offers inhome, caregiver and bereavement support, as well as a day hospice, transportation, community education, emergency residential care, and provides information and referrals. All the services are offered free of charge.

The motto of Friends of Hospice Ottawa is “While we can’t add days to your life, we can add life to your days,” said Holst. NEED FOR MORE BEDS

Studies show there is a need for 80-plus hospice beds to serve the Ottawa-Carleton region. Currently, there are nine beds at the Hospice at May Court, and Friends of Hospice Ottawa opened four temporary beds at Embassy West Seniors Living on Carling Avenue in February, with a total of 10 beds to be available by June, said Holst. “Each room is set up so the family can spend a lot of time there,” she said. “It’s very refreshing to know that good things are happening.” It costs around $4,000 for each bed, and the hospice re-

lies heavily on donations and fundraising efforts – which make up 65 per cent of the organization’s operating budget. Friends of Hospice Ottawa is hosting its ninth-annual Hike For Hospice event on May 5 at Andrew Haydon Park. The goal is to raise $60,000 to help cover the costs of services. “Whatever we raise in pledges will go directly to the program,” said Holst. “It is the backbone.” The hike is geared for all ages and abilities. “This hike is a very gentle hike,” said Holst. “It’s just a real fun day. It’s very relaxing. It’s not strenuous at all.” Holst added they are looking for corporate teams, with a minimum of four people, to sign up for the event. “(But) anyone who wants

to participate and doesn’t have a team to join, we’ll partner them with a team leader,” she said.

Association settles for more trees at 2 The Parkway against the development on the former postal office site. Residents wanted to see the land kept for an institutional use, instead of 95 new residential units. That’s out of keeping with the low-rise nature of the area and better suited to the nearby town centre, the community groups argued. Their argument was bolstered by hiring private landuse planning consultants. The community fundraised $30,000 for its Save Beaverbrook fund and spent $21,000

hiring a professional planner to review contentious development plans for 2 The Parkway and 1131 Teron Rd. An appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board would have cost the developer upwards of $20,000 to $30,000, Wilkinson said, but it would have cost the community much more because the onus would have been on the community association to hire experts to prove the city erred in its decision to rezone. Wilkinson had previously said she would like to see

the community association drop the appeal and focus on working in partnership with Morley-Hoppner to make improvements to the site plan – the details of the building’s design, landscaping and transportation issues. “If the developer spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on (an Ontario Municipal Board) hearing, that (money) is going to come out of the building,” Wilkinson said after the zoning was approved in February. “So, let’s put that money into the building.”

everyone in Beaverbrook, Wilkinson said. “The majority will be satisfied that they’ve got as much as they can,” she said. The developer was very willing to “come up with something that works” for the community now that the rezoning is approved and detailed site plan work is starting, Wilkinson said. The heavy landscaping Morley-Hoppner is agreeing to in the settlement with the community is something the developer was already considering. “He wants a high-quality product,” Wilkinson said, adding she did not get the sense the settlement would make a significant difference in the developer’s landscaping plan. Although the deal does include mention of screening the building from view by surrounding it with trees, Wilkinson said, there is no wording that would require the trees to be a certain size when they are planted around the seven-storey structure. Sealey and the community association led the charge

EMC news - After a lengthy fight and fundraising campaign, the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association has settled with a developer and will not be appealing a condo building at 2 The Parkway. The deal would see the developer, Morley-Hoppner Group, agree to “increased protection for forest and greenspace,” including screening the seven-storey building with trees to make it blend into the natural surroundings, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who was involved with the negotiations. The settlement with the Morley-Hoppner Group was almost finalized on Tuesday and was expected to be a done deal before the end of this week, Wilkinson said. Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association president Gary Sealey refused to comment about the settlement at this time. “We’ll have more information in the coming week,” he said.

In a press release sent out by Wilkinson, Sealey is quoted as saying: “This is a first step to improve green space protection for the whole of Teron Road … It will help foster Teron Road’s evolution as a true parkway, with respect guaranteed for its open spaces.” The settlement will mean the new condo building is as attractive as possible and it will ensure residents get “enhanced environmental security,” Sealey stated in the press release. The terms of the deal were not made public before press time. The settlement will put two appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board to rest. The community association had filed an appeal on the city’s decision to rezone the land to allow a seven-story condo building. Prior to that, Morley-Hoppner had already filed an appeal for a previous 10-storey plan for the site because the city didn’t meet deadlines for processing its application. The deal won’t please

No mass exodus in sight


hil McNeely has his heart in the right place. The Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MPP has been a vocal proponent for his ridingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constituents over the past year, doing what he feels is best to protect the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic, social and cultural identity. But, the OrlĂŠans politician was left floating in the political deep end with no life preserver in sight when he sent a letter to the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages attempting to stop the move of Department of National Defence staff and military personnel to the Nortel Campus in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west end. McNeely seems to think the relocation will result in a mass exodus of the OrlĂŠans francophone community. Granted, any DND employee who happens to own a house in OrlĂŠans wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happy with a longer commute time. But who would be? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little unreasonable to ask the federal government or its agencies not to relocate its staff or set up shop in a new part of town because it will result in a longer car or bus ride for its employees. No one is forcing DND staff to move â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they can choose to maintain homes in OrlĂŠans or move to a residence a little closer to the Nortel Campus. This is an economic reality that those of us who

work for private businesses face. Also, there is no way for McNeely to know how many of the affected employees currently live in OrlĂŠans, or where they would prefer to live. As for McNeelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestion that the relocation threatens the francophone character of the OrlĂŠans community, that is another red herring that distracts residents from the real problem. The MPP, and his fellow east-end politicians, should focus their efforts on convincing businesses to locate in OrlĂŠans, instead of relying on strictly remaining a bedroom community for federal civil servants. After the economic downturn of 2008 and the subsequent budgetary struggles faced by the provincial and federal governments, many Ontarians are thankful simply to have jobs, never mind quibbling over having to increase commute times or change living arrangements to keep them. Pitting one end of the city against the other and attempting to beat the federal government over the head with the preserve-francophone-rights stick is counterproductive and does nothing to foster job growth in the Ottawa region. OrlĂŠans is a vibrant community with wonderful parks, recreation, transit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a great place to live, and play and do business.


Time to get ready for some geezer cinema


s it OK to use the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;geezer?â&#x20AC;? Perhaps it is if you are one. Somehow it seems more human than â&#x20AC;&#x153;seniorâ&#x20AC;? and way nicer than â&#x20AC;&#x153;elderly.â&#x20AC;? It also suggests a sense of humour which, heaven knows comes in handy. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all right to continue, this column is going to be about geezer flicks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in other words, movies featuring old people. There is a small trend in this direction. Recently several movies featuring older actors have hit local screens, to the considerable appreciation of older audiences. There was Quartet, about a group of retired British musicians living in a musiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; retirement home. People like Maggie Smith were in it, along with Tom Courtenay and Billy Connolly. Some of the jokes were about aging, but a lot of the humour came from the notion that retired people have the preoccupations they did when they were younger, the same fears and jealousies. Then there was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with Maggie Smith again, along with Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson and other great British actors, living in a run-down hotel in India, each seeking something or seeking escape from something else. Both movies were funny, showing that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop laughing when you hit a certain age,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town and both had happy endings of a sort, showing that happy endings arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only for the young and pretty. The ending was less happy in Away From Her, Sarah Polleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2006 film featuring Julie Christie as a victim of early Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Gordon Pinsent as her not-entirely-noble husband. Although it sometimes seems that way, smart movies about older people are not the exclusive preserve of the British. What is encouraging about such movies is the indication their mere presence makes that geezers might actually constitute a significant market â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in other words, that they cannot be ignored while the entertainment industry pursues teenagers. This shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a surprise, when you think about it. That huge baby boom generaPublished weekly by:

tion has been marching steadily onward into old age and the front end of it is well into retirement now. More is to come. That may be a mixed blessing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Eagles on the muzak at the retirement home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but at least it may mean better movies. For one thing, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to watch people obsessed with losing their virginity. When the flood of geezer flicks arrives, moviegoers will have to be aware of the proper way of viewing them. This involves going to your local multiplex in mid-afternoon and mid-week when the parking lot is almost empty and there are no lineups for popcorn because everyone else in the world is either at work or in school. Having made the purchase, you enter the theatre early â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because geezers are always early â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and look around at the 14 other people who are in it. They are all your age. There is no need to greet your fellow moviegoers, but you will be silently grateful for them because you know that none of them will be playing with their phones during the show, the ability to manipulate phones not being a highly-prized skill among this generation. They will also have not the slightest idea of the answers to the movie trivia questions that flash on the screen, none of which involve Gary

8 Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, April 18, 2013

Cooper or Debra Paget. After watching previews of movies featuring explosions and making a mental note not to see them, the geezers will enjoy the movie, nod politely to each other on the way out and get home before the rush-hour traffic. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it is now but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always the risk that the pleasant ritual could be put at risk by the increasing popularity of geezer flicks and the increasing population of geezers. Already there are reports of crowds of more than 14 at matinees of Quartet. But geezers have met worse challenges in their long lives.

From adversity to celebrity

e are a culture that loves celebrity. Yet we often treat celebrities as superhuman or subhuman – never human. We admire, but we also criticize and scathe. Underlying this, my guess is, there’s a small part in all of us that would like to emulate them. But I wanted to find out: what makes a celebrity tick? This month, I spoke with Kathy Smart, Ottawa’s newest celebrity export and the owner of Live the Smart Way. She called me from the Gluten-Free Expo in Calgary. She laughs when I mention the word celebrity. “I always knew from an early age that I would help millions of people,” she admits. “But I didn’t know what that would look like.” Smart was born and raised in Cornwall. As a kid, Smart became very sick. She lost weight and frequently had to miss school. She was depressed. At 12, a naturopath diagnosed her with a number of food allergies, including dairy and gluten. “Within a week, I went from being very sick to a child that was full of energy and life and a kid that was anxious to one who could go to school and have friends,” said Smart. “That’s when I


realized, if you change what you eat, you can change your life.” That line became Smart’s mantra. At 19, she worked for local outlets of a national grocery chain, identifying glutenfree products on mainstream shelves. When I first encountered Smart, she was running a number of exercise and nutrition programs at the Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex in Orléans. Smart’s prospects changed a few years ago when she realized she couldn’t have children of her own. She wanted to create something, so she wrote a bestselling gluten-free cookbook. Its timely release coincided with the launch of a local TV program and overnight she went from being Ottawa’s nutrition expert to a

national celebrity. Despite this, I get the sense talking to Smart that she hasn’t changed a bit since her days at the community centre. How can it be that celebrity hasn’t corrupted her? Is she driven by money? “I don’t care about money,” she said. What about fear? Does she have any? “I don’t really understand the question.” She’s so passionate about her mission that fear is the last thing on her mind. With a bit of probing, she gives me the answer to the main question of my interview: “how can someone like me or you, the reader, or anyone become a celebrity – or at least achieve ‘success’ in life?” “If there is fear, you have to get over that hurdle very quickly and focus on your passion,” said Smart. It’s for that reason Smart outsources everything she’s “not good at” and surrounds herself with “smart, positive people.” Focusing on her main goal allows Smart to remain authentic in her mission. “Just be you,” she said. If Smart’s anything to go by, celebrities are like the rest of us, but maybe with a thicker skin and a somewhat superhuman ability to look at the bright side of life.

Salute to nurses everywhere Remember the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding? Mama is instructing her daughter to find her real place in the family as the unsung leader. “The husband” she said, “is the head of the family. “But you are the neck....and where the neck leads, the head will follow.” So it is with nurses everywhere. These tireless women and men are the unsung heroes in every doctor’s office, clinic, emergency room, maternity ward, operating theatre and floor management team across Canada. Always present: caring, overseeing progress, bringing assistance to people in need, however large or small. The nurse knows what to look for, what to do to give immediate aid, when to call for the doctor, and when to just offer a friendly ear and solace. A nurse’s patient contact is always based on training, experience and trust, and most of us have at one time or another benefitted from all three. At age three, I loathed going to get shots. The doctor’s nurse, a large, happy woman firmly in control, held faith in the “surprise” injection. She’d point to some distraction on the wall, and when eyes were averted, she’d exclaim, “One, two, three, kootch!” and jam the needle wherever it needed to go. It was always a surprise, but it rarely hurt. She was immediately forgiven, and young patients were immediately rewarded with a hug or a kiss. She remained nurse in power for 29 years and

was well-loved. The kootch and smooch approach was a novelty. But it worked. All nurses apply a personal form of ministration to their duties. Beyond medications, this may include holding a hand, wiping a brow, a friendly ear, and an open heart. Schedules often rob nurses of days off, family time, and even cut vacations short, all in the name of service to others. It’s why nursing is called “the noblest profession”. If you know a nurse, are married to one, related to one – give them a hug. May 6 to 12 is Nurses Week, so let’s give these deserving individuals the recognition they deserve. We at St. Paul’s Anglican Church will be offering prayers for nurses all of the month of May, and in a special way on May 12 – the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. We’d be honoured to have you join us in honouring our irreplaceable nurses. Check our website for service times that suit you: St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Katimavik **

as a city and as residents. The LRT is going to cut our carbon dioxide emissions by 90,000 tonnes per year by removing thousands of bus trips. That’s like planting 90 million trees. The methane recovery energy plant at the Trail Road dump is already preventing twice that amount, generating five mega watts of electricity, enough for 5,000 homes. And, in a virtuous cycle, that displaces another 40,000 tonnes from coal that doesn’t get burnt. That is the sort of thing we can do right here in Ottawa, without waiting for other governments. You are correct that the city should also discuss trash collection policy and aging infrastructure. They are important issues and they provide yet more opportunities to reduce emissions all while making a more liveable Ottawa. Jason Scott, P.Eng. Bridlewood **

Editorial on greenhouse gas roundtable off the mark To the editor, Re: Hosting a venting session, editorial, March 28, KKS. Your editorial on the Greenhouse Gas Roundtable hosted by the city on March 23 seems to miss the point. Half of all greenhouse gas emissions come from cities. Virtually every major city in the world has a plan to reduce their emissions. Ottawa’s Air Quality and Climate Change Management Plan was a good effort but since published in 2004 is now dated and in need of new initiatives and reduction targets. Yes, the city and other municipalities should coordinate with both provincial and federal governments for a cohesive response. But there is much the city can do on its own and virtually every idea has been tried somewhere in the world with a track record. The city’s commitment to come up with a renewed and integrated plan over the next year is a positive one; Mayor Watson and Coun. Maria McRae are to be congratulated. The roundtable was a good opportunity to kick start community discussion and table some excellent ideas. With the right approach the city can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save money, generate green jobs and improve our quality of life. David Rhynas Old Ottawa South

Canadian Wildlife Federation holds 4th annual walk Tyler Costello

EMC news – With the goal of having Canadians connect with nature, the Canadian Wildlife Federation is holding its fourth annual Walk for Wildlife. It’s about getting Canadians coast to coast back outside, said Jerika Bradford from the federation, who is organizing the Walk for Wildlife event in Ottawa. “When people see how great na-

ture is, they will be more likely to come back,” said Bradford who also said spending time outdoors enjoying nature can help reduce your stress levels. The federation’s goal is to have over 15,000 kilometres logged on their website before the walk officially ends on May 22, last year walkers logged over 12,000 kilometres. The “walk” officially started April 7 and only two days later walkers from across the country had already logged over 3,400 kilometres on-

line. Bradford said that federation anticipates beating the 15,000 kilometre mark by the end of April. Although CWF has several organized walks across Canada, walkers can log kilometers from walks they take on their own time. If you walk your dog in the evening or go for a jog, you can log it, said Bradford. Those wishing to participate further can also organize group walks which can then be listed on the federation’s website for oth-

ers to see. Ottawa’s official walk will take place at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden on May 4 from 10 am till noon; registration will start at 9:30. Fletcher Wildlife Garden, located off Prince of Wales near the Arboretum, features several butterfly meadows, woodlots and an amphibian pond. “It’s a great location because it’s accessible to everyone and its pet friendly,” said Bradford. The wildlife federation is also looking for volunteers to help with their native species garden located at their head office in Kanata.

Their garden, which avoids pesticides and aims to conserve water, features a hummingbird bed, a shade bed and a drought bed. Volunteers are needed for the usual tasks of weeding, watering and digging but the federation is also looking for photographers and individuals with computer and research skills willing to help out. If you are interested in volunteering at the garden you can send an email to If you are looking for more information concerning the Walk for Wildlife campaign you can visit their website,

EMC news - A 17-year-old girl is in serious condition at CHEO after she was struck by an SUV near a bus stop in Briarbrook on April 11. The girl suffered abdominal and head injuries but her vital signs were stable and she was conscious when paramedics arrived shortly after 7:30 a.m, said Ottawa paramedic spokesman J.P. Trottier. “We were told by witnesses that she may have been unconscious after the impact,” said Trottier. The teenager was walking across the street near the intersection of Kinross Private and Shirley’s Brook Drive when she was struck by a vehicle attempting to pass an O.C. Transpo bus, picking up students to go to school at All Saints Catholic High School. The girl was thrown to the ground by the impact and was treated by paramedics before being transferred to the Paediatric Trauma centre at CHEO. The SUV was travelling at an estimated speed of 35 to 40 kilometres. Speeding is a problem in Morgan’s Grant and Briarbrook, said area resident Sylvia Marshall. “That corner needs a stop sign,” she said. “I walk it everyday and it needs BLAIR EDWARDS/METROLAND a stop sign.

Spring Show and Sale offers variety of art Art club hosts first event in three years now that church construction is complete Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The Kanata Art Club will be painting a pretty picture with its first Spring Show and Sale in three years. The club, which hosts its sale at St. Isidore Roman Catholic Parish at 1135 March Rd. on the first weekend in May, put the annual event on hold while the church was undergoing construction and renovation. But now that the building is up and running, so is the art show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are very excited,â&#x20AC;? said art club president Diane Dean, a Stittsville resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just about half of our members have booths.â&#x20AC;? Around 35 of the 80-plus membership base will be showing their artwork on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice slice of the community contributing,â&#x20AC;? said past president Josie Braden, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a member

of the club for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lovely thing to do on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You may pick up a treasure.â&#x20AC;? Artists from across the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from West Carleton to Renfrew to OrlĂŠans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; working in all mediums, will be showcased. Watercolours, oils, waxes, pastels and more will be on display to satisfy any taste, said Braden, who also lives in Stittsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll all be represented in the show,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice preparation for Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day.â&#x20AC;? There is no admission for the Spring Show and Sale but the art club will be accepting donations for the Kanata Food Cupboard. Refreshments will also be available. DIVERSE MEMBERSHIP

The show offers a more relaxed atmosphere from traditional galleries and gives the public the opportunity to talk with and ask questions

of the artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more people that are there and the more it grows, the more excited I get,â&#x20AC;? said Braden. Dean, a member of the club for the past 10 years, added itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great educational tool for children, teens and young adults. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all florals and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all landscapes,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have quite a diverse membership.â&#x20AC;? The club is open to artists of all ages and talents, with beginners and seasoned veterans working side by side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting some of these younger people,â&#x20AC;? said Dean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good sign for an art club,â&#x20AC;? added Braden. Established in the 1960s, the Kanata Art Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership has grown to more than 100 artists. The yearly fee is $30 and members have access to workshops, classes, the monthly meetings and art shows. And not all members produce pieces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always welcome new members,â&#x20AC;? said Dean, adding that some people sign up just to hear the guest speakers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to paint â&#x20AC;Ś to attend classes and workshops.â&#x20AC;?

Sold into slavery

Ottawa case highlights human trafficking Continued from page 16

Last year, two 15-year-old girls and one 16-year-old female were arrested and charged with recruiting and trafficking other teenagers in Ottawa. One victim was recruited at the St. Laurent Shopping Centre, others through social media sites, with seven victims under the age of 18, said Clow. The case is currently before the court. At a news conference last year, Ottawa police Staff Sgt. John McGetrick said the victims were forced into prostitution. Three individual reports in late May and early June triggered the investigation. It is alleged that a number of girls between the ages of 13 and 17 were lured to an address in south Ottawa and subsequently driven to other locations for the purposes of prostitution. McGetrick said the ages of both the victims and the suspects made this a “disturbing and shocking” case. According to PACT-Ottawa, the average age of recruitment into the sex trade in Canada is 14.

Human trafficking is on the rise around the world. It’s estimated that 27 million people are slaves. And it’s happening here Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Michelle was only 15 years old when she was forced into prostitution. She was recruited during a vulnerable time in her life, when her parents were going through a rough patch and she was having a hard time. “Suddenly, I felt that instead of being needed and wanted, I was alone,” said Michelle. She met some older boys who showed an interest, talked and listened to her. They added her to an instant messaging site where they chatted regularly. “They were so nice,” she said, adding they had a car and good clothes. One day, Michelle was taken to an apartment and told to do anything the man inside asked of her. Her chaperon would wait. “I had no clue what he was talking about,” she said. But she learned. She did what the man asked and was handed a wad of cash as she left. “That was my first lesson,” she said. Michelle’s pimp kept her under control by using video as blackmail, physically assaulting her and threatening to go after her younger sister if she tried to escape. Men kept a constant watch on Michelle outside her school, her job and her home. Eventually, her parents kicked her

out of the house. She lost her legitimate employment and she dropped out of school. “I hit rock bottom,” said Michelle. In the end she picked up the phone and called Walk With Me, an emergency care organization for victims of human trafficking. Michelle escaped. “I’m thankful every day for that,” she said. It’s Happening IN OTTAWA

Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing enterprises in the world, second only to drug sales and quickly rising. It is estimated that more than 27 million people worldwide are slaves, with girls between the ages of 12 and 22 the most at risk. And it’s happening here. “It is very real. It’s happening in Ottawa,” said Tasha Henderson, education and training co-ordinator for Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking Humans (PACT-Ottawa). “I think a lot of people aren’t willing to accept it or don’t know about it.” PACT-Ottawa created Project Protect, a program on domestic and international human trafficking to teach youth how to identify and protect themselves from being exploited. Natalie Fuso and Kari-Ann Clow, victimology students at Algonquin College and PACT-Ottawa volunteers, spoke to Grade 12 students at

most at risk. • Eighty per cent of people trafficked are women and children; 70 per cent are trafficked for sexual exploitation. • Every 60 seconds, two children are trafficked for sexual exploitation. Walk With Me has helped numerous people. In 2011, the organization: • Received 79 domestic crisis calls and four from international victims. • Had 29 domestic and two international residents in its

Walk With Me Canada Victim Services was created in 2009 by Timea Eva Nagy, a survivor of human trafficking. She was forced into the Toronto sex trade after immigrating to Canada. The organization, based in Hamilton, Ont., provides first response care for victims and services and support throughout Canada. It also raises awareness and educates on issues of

Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing enterprises in the world. Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking Humans (PACT-Ottawa) created Project Protect, a program on domestic and international human trafficking to teach youth how to identify and protect themselves from being exploited. Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Katimavik earlier this month. “It’s something we are seeing a lot,” Clow told the assembled students. “There’s an incredible amount of trafficking going on.”

Human trafficking is the illegal sale of people for forced labour, organ extraction and prostitution. Victims are kept under the control of their traffickers and exploited.

See OTTAWA, page 17

Human trafficking rakes in $32 billion annually in profits Human trafficking brings in “a profit level higher than Nike, Starbucks and Google combined.” The 2011 annual report published by Walk With Me Canada Victim Services highlights the alarming numbers in human trafficking both domestically and internationally. • Human trafficking has estimated profits of $32 billion annually. • Approximately 27 million people worldwide are slaves, with girls ages 12 to 22 the

• Forced drug addiction, tattoos or branding • Blackmail with recorded video footage • Instilling a fear of police and authority Many victims fear asking for help because of acts they were forced to commit. “A lot of these victims don’t want to come forward,” said Fuso. But the police are trained to treat them as victims, not as perpetrators of a crime. “Their mentality isn’t, ‘Oh, they committed the crime,’” said Clow. The police want victims to come forward to get help.

safe house. • Provided 2,124 hours of care for domestic victims and 168 internationally. • Provided first response to 44 people, both male and female. Thirty-six out of the 44 were women. One-hundred per cent of the women were successful in permanently severing ties with their traffickers. All of the females eventually told police they had been trafficked. Ninety-four per cent of those cases went to,

are, or were before the courts. Human trafficking charges were laid in all completed cases. CRIMINAL CODE AMENDMENTS

Walk With Me founder Timea Nagy and chair of the board of directors Robert Hooper, along with Manitoba MP Joy Smith, also created amendments to the Criminal Code with Bill C-310, which was passed last year.

Canadians who commit human trafficking offenses outside the country can now be prosecuted in Canada. The second amendment provides specific definitions of exploitive conduct, providing courts with clear examples. “Slavery has not been eradicated in Canada or in the world,” said Hooper in his message from the board. “Having said that, many more people know that human trafficking involves the exploitation of people through force,

coercion, threat, fraud or deception and may include acts generally defined as human rights abuses. “Hopefully ... many people have gone from victim to survivor, many others have avoided being trafficked altogether, and hopefully one or two potential traffickers have seen the amendments to the Criminal Code and have thought twice about their activities.” Jessica Cunha

“With two recent high profile cases of youth domestic trafficking and recruitment in Ottawa, this issue is gaining more attention,” said Christina Harrison Baird, chairwoman and director of policy and legal affairs for PACT-Ottawa. “We know that crime prevention through education is a major element in the fight against human trafficking.” Currently, there are 77 trafficking cases before Canadian courts, said Fuso. THE GAME

The “game” is a term that many pimps use, said Clow. The main goal of the game is to make money, maintain a “stable” of girls and/or boys, and run a tight ship. “Traffickers do their ground work really well,” said Henderson. The primary tools many traffickers are using include Facebook and other social media sites to track and recruit victims. Any personal information posted online can become a lever to lure young people into the sex trade and keep them there. Traffickers use a number of methods to control their victims and keep them from seeking help: • Threatening the victim and his or her family

slavery. Walk With Me created a video, shown to the Grade 12 class. It features King, a pimp, and Michelle, a survivor, both from Ontario who share their personal stories about domestic trafficking. The video offers both sides of a disturbing story. King looks for vulnerable girls, those who feel unloved or unwanted. “Take the king of the jungle,” he said. “When he’s about to hunt, he doesn’t just get out there. He does research. “He looks, sees which animal is weak, which one’s vulnerable … then he finally makes his move.” King often uses social media as a point of contact. “You have to sell a dream,” said King. “Whatever dream she has, you use it … once you have that, you have everything.” After bringing a girl into his circle, he lavishes her with attention and material items. The “dream” can take months or years to sell. Once hooked, he breaks her down with violent outbursts to “keep her on her toes.” He tells her he needs money quick and knows a way she can help. After all, she owes him for all the gifts. “I have product, not girls,” said King, who rakes in around $4 million

a year through human trafficking. One male working under King was caught and charged a fine of $200,000. “That’s a business expense,” said King. “I’ve never been caught,” he added. “Why would I stop?” BE READY

Fuso, a Barrhaven resident, and Clow, who lives in Beacon Hill, discussed ways people may be targeted with the Grade 12 class. People who are teased and bullied, who have an unstable home life or feel isolated can become a prime target for exploitation. “People are trafficked and still live at home with their parents,” said Clow. Fuso and Clow created a chart and the students listed what it meant to be a girl or a boy in society’s terms. Females, they said, are passive, emotional, care about their appearance, and can be sexual objects. Males are muscular, aggressive, dominant, emotionless and players. “No one really fits into these boxes,” said Fuso. “When people don’t fit to these gender stereotypes they can become … a target. “People can have an easier time exploiting them.” Canadians are in a position to do preventative work, to be ready when people come forward, said Henderson. “Think about how we’re treating people; we push people back to their trafficker because they come forward and we don’t believe them,” said Henderson. “We shame them or we blame the victim and it (keeps) them from really seeking the help that they need.” Aside from outreach and education, PACT-Ottawa’s Project Protect is also training front line workers through its Train the Trainer program. “The goal of Train the Trainer is


Detail from educational materials distributed by the RCMP. According to PACT-Ottawa, the average age of recruitment into the sex trade in Canada is 14. to provide front line service providers in how to support a victim once they come forward,” said Henderson, “to create a strong prime line of who sees the victim first and provides resources.” PACT-Ottawa has also teamed with St. Joe’s Women’s Centre, located in downtown Ottawa, to provide 24/7 assistance for victims of trafficking. “They have agreed to be the first

respondent,” said Henderson. “The police and RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) know to refer people their way. “I would implore (people) just to start conversations about trafficking and not think about it happening just over there, overseas. It’s happening in Canada.” With files from Eddie Rwema

Getting help: it is possible Leaving a trafficker can be one of the most difficult and dangerous times in a victim’s life. But it is possible. “There’s a small window when women are able to leave or feel empowered to leave,” said Tasha Henderson, education and training co-ordinator for Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking Humans (PACT-Ottawa). Because of the financial aspect to human trafficking, “traffickers have a different interest in getting their traffickers back” than an abusive lover would, said Henderson. A victim must feel safe in order to leave his or her captor. There are a number of services available to make the relocation as secure as possible. St. Joe’s Women’s Centre, located in downtown Ottawa, is the primary support for local victims of human trafficking, said Henderson, with a 24-hour on-call respondent. “The best thing that (a victim) can do is to contact the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) or

Ottawa Police Service and speak to someone about it, or call directly to St. Joes,” said Henderson. “We’re in a position where we can … (be) ready when people come forward.” Contacts

Beaverbrook twins head to world cheerleading championships ‘We are so excited’ Steve Dool

EMC sports – A pair of twins from Beaverbrook and Stittsville will compete in the World Championships of All-Star Cheerleading in Orlando, Fla. later this month. Beaverbrook’s Ashleigh and Jenna Dodunski and Stittsville’s Savannah and Celena Ethier were selected as members of the Swell Sharks Cheerleading Team. “We are so excited,” said Savan-

nah Ethier. “Only the best teams get to go worlds.” The Swell Sharks team is comprised of 20 athletes from three different Ontario locations and the twins are the first girls from the Stittsville club to make the team. The girls never actually tried out for the team but were chosen because of skills they had demonstrated to their coaches in practice. “The people who picked the team knew who we were because they had been to our practices, so they knew what we could do,” said Celena Ethier. The girls train with the team in

Cambridge once or twice a month but are at the Cheer Sport Sharks gym on Iber Road six or seven days a week. On the team, Savannah and Celena are bases and Jenna and Ashleigh are flyers. Bases lift and throw flyers and flyers are the ones at the top of stunts who get lifted and thrown. Normally there are twice as many bases as there are flyers. The girls are involved in seven to eight tournaments a year but the worlds competitions are what they strive for, according to Ashleigh and Jenna’s mother, Sam Riem. “It’s the Olympics of cheerleading,” said Riem.

Riem said she expects more athletes to make the team from the Iber Road facility in the future. “Everybody is onto it now, they see what the kids can achieve,” said

Ottawa & Area - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale.

The association has $57,250 cash in hand in its accounts, said treasurer Hugh Nelson. In its building account, the association spent $32,321 on building, staff, insurance, office and administration expenses as well as to pay for maintenance of outdoor rinks and fund community public events. These expenses were offset by $22,000 in renewable community funding and an outdoor rink grant from the city as well as $5,777 in revenue from facility rental, leaving the association with an overall $1,769 loss for the year for the account. In its Save Beaverbrook account, the association spent $26,413, most of it used to hire a professional planner to help fight contentious development proposals in the community, such as the midrise at 2 The Parkway and a highrise and six townhomes at 1131 Teron Rd. The city recently gave the goahead for the midrise, but is currently working out a deal with the MorleyHoppner Group that could see more plants and trees included surrounding the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the community will be happy with this,â&#x20AC;? said Sealey. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said the association would have likely lost an appeal of devel-

The association is a charter supporter of the Scouts group. opment at the Ontario Municipal Board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they realized the appeal was going to be difficult to do and expensive,â&#x20AC;? she said. The highrise proposal on Teron Road has been placed on hold, as the city is waiting for more information

from the developer. The association still has $2,300 in its Save Beaverbrook account. The association plans to continue an ambitious membership drive, hoping to sign up 500 new members. Last year, the association delivered membership pamphlets to 1,200

homes, during its walking membership drive. During the annual general meeting, Sealey asked several members to commit time to act as ambassadors for the association, by greeting new homeowners and promoting membership within their neighbourhood.

EMC news - All Saints Catholic High School’s robotics team advanced to the semifinals and won two awards at the recent FIRST robotics competition. The robotics team, made up grades 9 to 12 students, advanced to the semifinals of two regional competitions held in Oshawa and Mississauga, Ont. last March, as well as winning spirit and quality awards at the events. “The spirit award represents having an overall good team spirit,” said All Saints team member Gabrielle Genereux, one of the students who operated the robot at the competition. “The quality award represents an overall good robot design that completes the tasks efficiently and effectively.” Every year, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping youth pursue studies in science, holds regional and international robotics competitions for high school teams across the world. Each competition lasts three days and is comprised of three

main events. This year the teams were tasked with building a robot that could climb a pyramid and also score Frisbees into a goal. “We went through the rule book and got familiar with how to score and then we decided what our strategy was going to be,” said All-Saints robotics drive team member Sean Frank. From there the students worked on the design of the robot. Early on the team decided that they wanted to be able to climb to the top of the pyramid and also pick things up off the floor and shoot Frisbees into the goal. The teams have about six weeks to design, program and build their robot before it gets bagged, sealed and shipped off to the competition. One of the strategies that the All-Saints team uses is duplication. Instead of building just one robot, they build two identical ones so when the competition robot gets sealed up, the team can still practice. “It also helps to have a spare robot for parts just in case something breaks before the competition,” said All-Saints teacher and robotics mentor Paul Mc-

City Councillor, Kanata North ACCIDENT ON SHIRLEY’S BROOK Last week a teenager was struck by a vehicle while crossing Shirley’s Brook Dr. I visited the scene, talked with the police. I was told that she exited an OC Transpo bus, started across the road in front of the bus and was struck by a vehicle that was passing the bus and driving within the speed limit. Some are now calling for more stop signs. The police informed me that more stop signs would not have prevented this accident. What is important is for everyone to review their driving habits and their pedestrian movements. If a view of you is blocked as you cross a street, stop when you are at the end of the blocked view to check that the way is clear before proceeding. If you are driving past a stopped bus, leave distance between you and the bus, slow down, check for pedestrians and then continue past. Fortunately, it appears that the teen will recover but we do not want to have another such accident and each of us is part of the solution.

Old organ, hymns offer comforting sounds at Sunday service


he organist at the Lutheran church did her best, but when Aunt Lizzie came from Regina on her yearly visit, she never failed to comment on how the old organ needed a tuning. She once added, “maybe what is needed is a new organist.” Well, the chance of getting anyone to replace the organist out there in Northcote was just about nil and the possibility of getting the instrument tuned was just as remote. The woman who sat on the little swivel stool every Sunday played for the satisfaction it gave her and other than a few words of praise from the min-

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories ister at the Strawberry Social in the summer that was all the pay she got. The organ looked like it had gone through the war. When I was very young, sitting right behind it, I often thought a ghost lived in it because for a few seconds after the last note was played, there was a wheezing sound come out of it, like someone

bun at the back of her head. The bun hid her neck and one Sunday I got the giggles which I had trouble controlling when I thought her head looked like a turnip sitting on a narrow cloth-covered shelf. Audrey had to give me a few pokes with her finger to get me to sober up. We never knew if there was going to be a choir. It didn’t seem to be organized to the point where you could expect to see the same faces every Sunday, even though once a week there was supposed to be choir practice. Who showed up on those nights depended on other events going on in the community which were considered more important. We could always count on one dedicated soul who never failed to sit in the very middle of the little row of straightbacked chairs on the small platform at the front of the church. She often drowned out the organist and one Sunday she was singing one hymn while the organist was playing something entirely different. Both went on doing their own thing, as the minister sat in the big high backed

church. The foot pedals held a special fascination for me. There were two side by side. At one time they were covered in tapestry, but they had worn away to the perfect shape of the organist’s black laced shoes, which told me she had been playing for longer than I was alive. I thought she must be very old indeed, just like the organ. Since there was no other place to put them, at special services bouquets of flowers sat on a little round disc on the side of the organ. My older sister Audrey said that was where a lamp was placed if there was something going on in the church at night so the organist could see the keys. Flowers were placed there at Easter and at Christmas and I used to think it would be nice if someone brought flowers every week. But of course, that would never do for a staid and sober congregation like the Lutherans at Northcote. We hardly ever saw the face of the organist. Her back was to the pews and I often spent most of the service trying to count the number of big grey hairpins that held the fat

drawing his last breath. There was a single row of plugs that looked like spools of thread and even from a distance I could see printing on them. These “plugs” often seemed to confuse the organist, who would push and pull at them, which created more wheezing, or no sound at all. One Sunday, in her frustration, she pulled and pushed the same “plug” and the whole thing came out in her hand. She simply placed it on top of the organ and there didn’t seem to be a whit of difference in the sound, even without the missing part. I noticed it sat on top of the organ for weeks before someone removed it, and it was never replaced or seen again. The yawning hole where the “plug” had once been remained for as long as we went to the Lutheran

velvet chair with is eyes closed, rubbing his forehead. Audrey had a lovely voice, but she was very shy about singing alone. She had no trouble at the Northcote School when we belted out God Save the King every morning, but singing in church was a different kettle of fish. When she was ordered by Mother to do so, her knees shook like a bowl of jelly, sitting beside me in our pew. But when she got the first three or four notes out, she sang like a bird. I would look around the church as if to say, “that’s my sister, you know.” The old organ, the organist who lived in Northcote and never missed a Sunday, the familiar hymns, the voices raised in praise and the tattered hymn books all created a warm and comfortable feeling deep in my heart. Like the neighbours around us, always there when a hand was needed, the sounds of the organ and the voices raised in praise, gave me a safe feeling, enabling me to shut out all else around me, and on Sunday, even the Depression seemed remote and far away.

Mary Cook grew up on a farm in Renfrew county and she considers herself lucky because there was always food on the table.

Steve Dool

EMC news - Author Mary Cook shared stories about growing up during the Great Depression during a talk at Walden Village Retirement Residence on April 10. Cook spoke about life during a simpler time when deals were made with a simple shake of the hand. Cook grew up on a farm in Renfrew county and she considers herself lucky because there was always food on the table. “We always had food but there was no money for frills,” said Cook. “And we always had to eat everything off of our plate or else we were starving the Armenians.” “For the longest time I thought the Armenians came from Arnprior,” said Cook. In fact she said she didn’t really understand the depression until her rich aunt Lizzy came to visit one year and she gave her a quarter. “It was the first quarter I had ever seen,” said Cook. “Can you imagine your grandson being so excited by the sight of a quarter?” Once her aunt left, Cook’s mother approached with tears in her eyes. “I knew before she said anything that she was going to take my quarter,” said Cook. Her mother took the quarter to buy fuel for the lamps and Cook learned her first lesson about the Depression. Cook also talked about life growing up on the farm. She said the first car her family ever had was a Model T Ford that her father obtained by trading gravel with a neighbour. Cook has authored 11 books and is

currently working on her 12th, which she hopes to be ready for Christmas. “It is always a delight to come to a place like this to speak,” said Cook. “If I wasn’t bringing enjoyment to people I wouldn’t still be speaking and writing,” said Cook. “I have no other hobbies, I knitted a scarf once and it turned into a circle; writing is my hobby.” “She is a very clear speaker and I followed every word,” said audience member Sandy Griffin. “She describes a lot of the things that I didn’t experience but were very intriguing.”

Cornmeal-crusted trout with jerk sauce a bold dinner choice



Fresh jerk sauce: Place the onions, garlic and jalapeno in a food processor and whirl until coarsely ground. Add the sweet pepper and tomatoes with seeds and juice. Add the sugar, thyme, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic salt and cayenne pepper. Pulse in the food processor until chunky and pepper is chopped, about 10 times. Don’t puree. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the sauce and boil gently, uncovered and stirring often, until thickened or about 20 minutes. If you’re using it, stir in the coriander. Trout: Cut the fish into serving-size pieces. In shallow dish, combine the cornmeal, cumin and salt. In another dish, whisk the egg together with the milk. One at a time, coat both sides of fish in the egg mixture and then in the cornmeal mixture. In a large skillet, melt 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the butter over medium heat. Add the coated fish and cook until golden, or about three to five minutes. Add the remaining butter to the side of pan. Turn the fish, letting the melted butter flow over the pan before placing the fish down, cooking for about three to five minutes. Remove the fish to plates and spoon the jerk sauce on top and beside the fish. Foodland Ontario

Multifaith fundraiser aims to house the homeless Walkathon to help raise money, awareness for housing initiative

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide

Michelle Nash

EMC news - When it comes to building community and creating a place to call home, one charitable organization prides itself in bringing faith, family and friends together to make it happen. The Multifaith Housing Initiative is an affordable housing charity that connects volunteers from different faith communities from across the city with families or individuals who are at risk or experiencing homelessness in order to help them find a rental home. The initiative allows multiple faith communities, volunteers and donors to reduce the number of people living on the streets or in shelters. The initiative owns 40 units in three buildings in Vanier and Centretown and in order to maintain and expand those operations, the organization is holding its annual Tulipathon fundraising event on May 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. Micah Garten is the organization’s fundraising manager and he is currently working to put the final touches on the day’s events. “It’s a nice event, and probably the one and only event where you will see a rabbi, an imam, a minister and a Hindu all together for the same cause,” Garten said. The organization has 90 tenants in the 40 units and the campaign goal is to add another 20 units. The housing is not exclusive to one faith or one demographic. Although there are a lot of families

who have found placement in one of the initiative’s buildings, the group works with seniors, students, lowincome and seasonal workers to find them housing. All the existing units are full, Garten said, so expanding the number of units is the only way to successfully help more people in need. Celebrating its 15th year, the walkathon event raised $27,000 last year. This year, Garten said the group is looking to beat that number. The group has launched a campaign called A Place to Call Home, in which the organization aims to raise $500,000. This money would go towards purchasing a building in the city. “The units we provide have created communities,” he said. “Mothers are looking after each others’ children; homework clubs and community gardens have been started. We strive to create and build a sense of community and that is why it’s important to raise more money and purchase more units: to build more strong communities.” The walk is a short one, Garten SUBMITTED said, to bring awareness to the orga- Last year’s Tulipathon welcomed hundreds of supporters and walkers to help raise money for the Multifaith nization and the homelessness cause.

West Ottawa Ladies Chorus to hold first spring concert Tyler Costello

EMC news - The sound of women’s voices singing in unison fills your ears as you enter the doors of the Granite Ridge Specialty Care Facility in Stittsville. It’s Wednesday afternoon and the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus is preparing for their first ever spring concert titled Sing and Rejoice. Robert Dueck, the director, leads the chorus through their songs. Several residents from the care facility sit quietly in the corners enjoying the music. The ladies chorus, a 30-member

choir that sings in three and four part harmonies, is all about bringing the gift of music to the community. Most of the singers are from Kanata and Stittsville however some members originate from North Gower, Carleton Place and Fitzroy Harbour. “I just love it…it’s the beauty of the music,” said Liz Mevel, a member of the choir. The ladies chorus begins rehearsing 10 or 12 weeks prior to each performance but the preparation starts weeks before the rehearsals. In order to avoid weeks of note learning rehearsals, copies of the music are distributed to the members so they can become familiar with

music before the start of rehearsals. To assist the ladies further Dueck prepares Mp3 files of the different parts so that each singer knows they are practicing correctly. “The repertoire is eclectic,” said Monic Tougas who said she joined the chorus because she wanted to participate in top quality music. The all female chorus had its’ recent beginning performing as the West Ottawa Ladies Ensemble along side the Goulbourn Male Chorus in their Christmas concert in 2011. Robert Dueck, who directs both choirs, said “after the concert some ladies approached me and said ‘Robert if you ever put a ladies chorus together call me.’” The demand for a ladies chorus continued to increase and the following Christmas they performed under their current name as a guest performance in the male chorus’ concert at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Kanata. Now the ladies chorus prepares for their own spring concert. The objective is to be in a financial position to support a charity, said Dueck, who donates all his services to the choir. The spring concert, Sign and Rejoice, will be held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on 20 Young Rd. in Kanata, just off Hazeldean Road, April 20 at 7 pm.


Members of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus perform at the Granite Ridge Specialty Care Facility during one of their weekly practices. The chorus will have their first ever spring concert April 20 at St. Paul’s Anglican Church. The performance will feature three and four part selections as well as guest instrumentalists playing the cello, flute, trumpet and piccolo. There will also be a silent auction held before the concert to help raise the money needed to purchase music for the chorus’ Christmas concert at the end of the year. Tickets will cost $15 at the door but are available for advanced pur-

chase for $12 at Benjamin Moore on Stittsville Main Street, Domenic’s Music Store on Hazeldean Road and Kanata Cleaners on Teron Road. Admission is free for children 16 and under.

New hotel for ByWard Market Condo-hotel complex hurts heritage, says community group Laura Mueller

EMC news - Downtown Ottawa is set to get its first new hotel in about three decades – but it’s at the expense of a heritage building, according to the Lowertown Community Association. A Claridge Homes plan to build a 22-storey condo tower on George Street and add four storeys to the Union du Canada office tower and convert it into a hotel got the thumbs up from planning committee members on April 9. Adding even more height to a 1960s building that already “sticks out like a sore thumb” doesn’t make sense, said ByWard Market resident Louise Hout. “This mistake should not be amplified by allowing an extra four storeys,” she said. But the city already decided to allow a taller building to be constructed on that site, so nothing shorter than the original Union du Canada building would ever be built there,

said Katherine Grachuta, a planner working on behalf of Claridge. Hout and other community members worried that allowing taller buildings close to the centre of the heritage district would set a precedent of allowing towers to infiltrate the historic core of the ByWard Market. The march of condo towers into the market also troubled community association member Sylvio Granger, who told the committee that the market will become “hell on earth” if more condos are allowed to bring more residents into the market without changes to the streets and sidewalks. “We’re building a whole lot of towers around, but our streets haven’t changed a bit. We’re getting more and more traffic,” Granger said. “It won’t be livable and walkable for a long time.” Claridge’s application asked for changes to parking requirements. There will be 227 underground parking spaces shared between the condo and the hotel, which includes providing no parking spots dedicated to the hotel and a reduction in the visitor parking for the condo. There will also be enough parking space for 152 bicycles and transit use is encouraged by the site’s proximity to transit stations, the city staff report says. Granger and other residents also

worried the towers would interrupt the views from their homes, which is why they bought into that area. The zoning at that time didn’t permit buildings of these heights, Granger said. The city made a promise to residents through that zoning, he said, and now that promise is being broken at the request of a developer. Another community association member, Mario Gaspereti, made the argument that the extra height isn’t necessary because Claridge could hit the city’s targets for density and job creation within the existing zoning. Grachuta said it’s a good thing if the development can help the city reach its density targets and those numbers shouldn’t be looked at on a site-bysite basis, but rather in the downtown area as a whole. The planning committee chairman, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, was focused on the hotel aspect of the project. Low hotel vacancy rates show that a new lodging space is needed, he said. Hume asked Claridge president Neil Malhotra to explain why the construction of a hotel, which the city desires, is so dependent on Claridge being allowed to construct a 22-storey condo tower as part of the overall project. Malhotra said it’s common for developers to combine a hotel with another project like condos because ho-


Claridge got the planning committee’s approval to make the Union du Canada building taller and turn it into a hotel and to build a 22-storey, 282-unit condo tower beside it in the block between York and George streets east of Dalhousie Street in the ByWard Market. tels are high-risk. Having something safer, like condos, helps the company secure the financing it needs to make the hotel happen. Malhotra said he wants the complex to be a positive contribution to the streetscape. The hotel restaurant will be outward facing to invite people in off the sidewalk – not buried inside the building’s interior like some hotel restaurants. Outdoor amenity spaces are also a priority, he said. Community members like Liz MacKenzie cautioned that amenity

spaces need to be designed carefully to ensure they are safe and don’t encourage panhandlers and clients of nearby shelters to settle in there. The Union du Canada building’s role in francophone history will be commemorated in the hobby of the hotel. Grachuta said Claridge wants to get together with the community to decide the best way of doing that. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathiew Fleury, the local representative, could not comment on the project due to a conflict of interest because his father works for Claridge.

Farmers gather to protest release of GM alfalfa ing they support technologies that enable Canadians to farm sustainably. We support Canada’s robust science-based regulatory environment which ensures any new crops or traits are proven safe for human consumption, animal feed and our environment,” Stephen Vandervalk, president of the Grain Growers of Canada said in the release. “While we appreciate that many long-time opponents of progress have concerns, the reality is they have a lot of rhetoric, but no facts to back up their case.” But Sharrat said someone in the government needs to take responsibility. “Our government doesn’t even consider the potential economic costs before it allows GM (genetically mod-

onstrations in a four-week period. “Seventeen communities in eastern Ontario were holding demonstrations today,” she said, adding eastern Canada is where the genetically-modified alfalfa would be rolled out first. Lauretta Rice, whose son runs a dairy farm in Douglas, Ont., went to the protest because she said the introduction of the Monsanto technology would kill off the more than 200 varieties of the plant that her son produces locally. Alfalfa is a perennial plant that is pollinated. The introduction of a genetically-modified strain will crosspollinate with organic forms and threaten the livelihood of local farmers, she said. The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association released a report the

potential impact of Roundup Ready alfalfa on Canada’s forage industry in June 2012. “The introduction of RRA, and subsequent GE (genetically-engineered) alfalfa traits, into Canada could have a negative impact on certain export seed, forage, honey and the entire organic industry,” the report reads. “RRA would give forage producers a new and effective weed control system. Successful introduction would also encourage biotechnology companies to continue developing other GE alfalfa traits adapted to the Canadian market.” But the Grain Growers of Canada, an association that represents 50,000 farmer members, issued a press release the same day of the protest, say-

EMC news - The release of genetically-modified alfalfa could be the last straw for a dwindling bee population, said bee keeper Susan Hamilton. Hamilton, along with four dozen farmers from across Ottawa and the valley came out to protest the potential release of herbicide tolerant alfalfa at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency headquarters in Nepean on April 9. “We have had bees since 1973 and the population is dwindling already,” Hamilton said. “This will eventually kill them off.” Hamilton added that pollinating the alfalfa genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup could hurt and eventually kill bees. Forage Genetics International has applied Monsanto’s Roundup Ready technology to alfalfa and Canada already approved it for health and environmental release in 2005. Variety registration with the agency is the last step before it can become commercially available. Demonstrators with the National Farmers Union and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network hoped to halt the process by letting the powers that be know how they and consumers feel. Alfalfa is a high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs, but because labelling for genetically modified crops is not mandatory in Canada, it’s unlikely consumers will know they are eating altered crops. Lucy Sharratt, a co-ordinator with the action network, said 38 communities across the country organized dem-

ified) crops like this onto the market,” she said. “Farmers are left to bear the costs of GM contamination, which in the case of alfalfa would be borne by many types of family farmer across Canada.” Paul Slomp, a resident of Manotick Station who sells grass-fed, organic, non-certified beef to more than 200 clients in the Ottawa area, said the introduction of the modified plant doesn’t make sense. “Farmers don’t want it and I know my consumers don’t want it,” he said. “We have to ask ourselves who is making the decisions around what kind of food we eat, why on earth is this being legitimized and being commercialized in Canada?”

Ottawa has more than Earn Extra Money! enough room for jobs: study Keep Your Weekends Free! Laura Mueller

EMC news – Ottawa needs to find ways to convince businesses it’s a good idea to locate near transit hubs, councillors heard on April 9. Fifty per cent of businesses polled by a city-hired consultant said they likely wouldn’t relocate their business closer to a transit line because of perceived or real disadvantages such as difficulty accessing roads and free or low-cost parking and the high cost of buying or renting space. There was also some concern about inconsistent transit service and distance from potential customers. “Right now it looks like it’s going to be a hard sell,” said Daniel Nixey, a consultant from Danix Management Ltd., who undertook a detailed study of employment lands in Ottawa as part of the Official Plan update that’s currently underway. The transportation committee chairman, Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli, said it’s a problem that employers have a perception that transit service isn’t good enough to warrant a move. Retailers are more likely to want to move to transit-accessible locations and the federal government is also expected to continue focusing its offices at transit hubs, Nixey said. The topic came up as part of a discussion about whether the city has enough lands slated for the development of offices, factories and retail centres as job hubs. The city’s planning committee agreed with staff’s conclusion that there are enough employment lands to last the city for another 40 years and dismissed a request from builders to expand the

areas zoned for employment development. The committee asked for a detailed presentation on April 9 after getting a grilling from consultants representing Walton Group, which owns a large holding of undeveloped land in southwest Ottawa. One of Walton’s consultants, Leah Carson of MMM Group, said her company’s review showed there is not enough employment land close the highways and there are not enough large parcels of land in the short-term supply that could be built up. The city doesn’t evaluate available employment lands the same way the private consultants did, Cross said. That’s because the city doesn’t have any indication that employers see proximity to highways as a factor that makes the spot any more desirable than other areas. And large parcels of land aren’t in demand, either, he added. The idea of giving developers flexibility to mix employment areas with some housing isn’t working, Nixey said. That category is called “enterprise” lands, and instead of resulting in a mix of residences and jobs, most of those lands are being built up with housing because it’s more profitable than offices and shops, he said. “Work-live areas are a great idea,” he said. “The problem is, it didn’t happen … In Kanata, we ended up with a bunch of townhouses.” The enterprise category should either be scrapped entirely – something that has been discussed at city hall in the past – or new criteria should be added to ensure the jobs come to the area before homes are built. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the land north of


the Bellwoods Estates trailer park could become a model for switching land from the “enterprise” category to employment land. A developer, Brigil Platinum, wants to do something similar in Orléans. The company’s planning consultant, Miguel Tremblay of FoTenn, said Brigil wants to expand a Cité Collegial building on North Service Road and build up around it on a 25-acre site it owns. Changing the land designation from employment lands to a mixed-use centre would allow the company to build for up to 1,100 employees, whereas the city’s designation plans for around 700 jobs. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette was thrilled with the idea because it has the potential to bring even more jobs to his ward than the city anticipated. Orléans has a smaller proportion of available employment land than the rest of the city – about seven per cent of the supply, which will last about 20 years, said city staffer Ian Cross. RURAL EMPLOYMENT

There is enough employment land ready to develop in the rural areas to last 100 years, the study found. That’s far more than is needed, so the city should look at switching some of those lands so they can be developed for other uses, Nixey said. That will have to be done on a case-by-case basis, he said. But a guideline to follow would be to ensure there is enough space to provide a minimum of 0.75 jobs per household in large villages that are home to 2,000 or more people.

Children’s well-being lags behind in Canada UNICEF report paints gloomy picture Eddie Rwema


EMC news - A new report released by United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) paints a gloomy picture for Canadian children compared to kids in other wealthy countries. The report on the well-being of children ranks Canada 17th out of 29 countries, a score that hasn’t improved for almost a decade. The country scored below average grades for child poverty, and obesity and children’s life satisfaction. “The fact that our children rank in the bottom half when compared to other industrialized nations simply isn’t good enough,” David Morley, UNICEF Canada’s president and chief executive officer said in a release. “It is clear Canada can do better. Protecting and promoting the well-being of our children must become a national priority,” Particularly concerning is that Canada’s overall ranking drops seven places to 24th when

children’s views of their own life satisfaction are measured. Only five countries, all from Eastern Europe, rank lower than Canada in this category. Morley said listening to children’s voices, even at the youngest ages, and knowing more about how they see and evaluate their own lives is critical to improving children’s well-being. “Considering the size and general health of our economy when compared to the difficult recessions other countries in this report have experienced, it is clear Canada is not doing enough and needs to invest more in our children.” The report called for a clearer picture of the investment being made in children and ensuring the rights of children are prioritized in policy decisions with the use of child’s rights impact assessments. CHEO president and chief executive officer Alex Munter said he was troubled by the report. “The findings reflect a similar trend we have been seeing here at CHEO,” Munter said in a state-

tive, making health care delivery more complex.” The report identifies high levels of cannabis use as an area of concern. “There is a strong link between drug use and mental illness that must be addressed in our society and through public policy,” said Munter. While Canada has come a long way in terms of changing its views on mental health, Munter said there is still much more that needs to be done to overcome stigma. “We need to talk about mental health more than we do today. We need to invest in evidencebased mental health programs that improve the lives of youth and children. “We must establish mental health as a pillar of child and youth health care delivery. Doing so will help Canada make important gains to the benefit of our next generation and generations to come.” UNICEF said the current findings show progress, but warned that the study was carried out before many countries implemented austerity measures and budget cuts because of the economic crisis.


ment. “Changing Canada’s outcomes will require a rethinking of how we invest in young people and how we approach mental health as a central contributor to their well-being. It will require the engagement of public policy makers at all levels to take real action in an effort to improve outcomes.” He said the areas where Canada lags contribute to the increased complexity of children’s health problems and outcomes. “Obesity, poverty, substance abuse and poor life satisfaction are all linked to one another and are, from our hospital’s perspec-

Breeders, pet owners pleased with final kennel bylaw


EMC news - The third time was the charm for Ottawa’s new kennel rules, which are aimed at preventing puppy mills. The proposed bylaw was delayed twice late last year after public outcry that centered on how the new rules would impact people who own dogs for recreational purposes such

as dogsledding. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry originally asked for it to be delayed in October, when almost 200 people packed the Greely Community Centre and more than 20 people spoke to tell councillors about all the problems with the policy as it was proposed. For one thing, the city would be asking many rural dog owners to fly under the ra-




fied in the previous versions of the bylaw. Still, many dog owners and breeders will continue to fly under the radar even though they should be licensed, said the kennel club’s current president, Carol Broadhurst. “It would be wonderful if everyone applied … but not everyone will apply. That’s the problem,” she said, adding there is a lot of leeway there for the “good” breeders to comply. The second category would put a limit of three dogs and five cats in place for the inhome breeding kennel category. But after the public called for it, staff added a clause to allow up to three retired dogs or five retired cats to be kept as pets, or a rescued dog or cat to be kept temporarily. Those limits are intended to reduce the potential for noise caused by a large number of cats or dogs in a residential setting, but the limits wouldn’t apply to in-home breeding kennels that house animals primarily in an outbuilding. The in-home breeding category include basic requirements such as clean conditions and veterinary care when

necessary, but it also includes limits on breeding, selling and transferring animals. City staff also removed a clause of the in-home breeding kennel that would have required breeders to be a member in good standing of a bona fide dog or cat registry such as the Canadian Kennel Club or the Canadian Cat Association. That’s in recognition of breeders who focus on mixed “designer” breeds rather than purebreeds. “We’re not in the business of passing judgment on whether animals should be true bred or not,” said Christine Hartig, the city project officer for the new rules. Ron Holowka, a resident who came to address the committee on April 4, asked councillors to consider making the rules apply to pet shops as well. But Hartig said pet shops fall under different legislation because they handle animals in a different way. Shops usually don’t breed animals themselves, and they house the animals temporarily until they are sold – not for long periods of time, like a breeding kennel. A city staff review found

that most pet shops in Ottawa are actually selling animals from shelters and the Ottawa Human Society – not private breeders, Hartig said. The third category would apply to boarding kennels, which would require a $100 license. Boarding operations would be required to comply with zoning, have the proper insurance, keep health records for each animal, employ trained staff and to maintain cleanliness and proper conditions such as temperature, food and water. Some existing license holders will be grandfathered and allowed to have more animals until 2018. Under the previous rules staff drafted in October, there were only two categories: inhome breeding license, which would apply to people who have more than three dogs or five cats for breeding or showing and a separate licence proposed for commercial kennels or boarding operations. Enforcement of the kennel bylaw would be based on health and safety and only done when absolutely necessary, city staff said. Those fines can be appealed.

dar if it passes new kennel and breeding rules, Kinburn resident Tim Pychyl told councillors during that meeting on Oct. 4. Pychyl, who owns eight sled dogs, pleaded with the committee to include people like him – recreational pet owners who have more than three dogs. Based on that feedback, staff included a new recreational kennel category in the new proposal, which would cover homes where dogs are raised for non-commercial recreational purposes. The category has a limit of 10 dogs over the age of 20 weeks (this category only applies to dogs), unless they are housed in a building separate from the home. License holders can also keep up to three dogs that have retired from their recreational use and one rescued dog. Pychyl said the addition “has really done the job of creating the space we need to ethically own and race dogs.” Joan Colbourn, past president of the Ottawa Kennel Club, said the addition of the recreation category was a “wonderful way” to solve the problems dog owners identi-

Legality of rivers use in dispute

EMC news – Are you legally allowed to canoe or boat on Ottawa-area rivers – including the Madawaska, Mississippi, Carp, and Jock – this summer? “Good question. No one really knows,” John Bennett said. “We’ll have to wait and see.” The Sierra Club of Canada executive director joins a growing list of environmentalists, conservationists like Angelo Lombardo of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, and others who fear their right to use the vast majority of Canada’s waterways is now curtailed or worse. That’s because recent changes by the Conservative government scales back federal control in favour of private. “For anglers and hunters who use waterways that flow through private lands, the changes will be especially troubling because landowners now have more latitude to obstruct public access to our lakes and rivers,” Lombardo wrote in the April 2013 issue of Ontario Out of Doors magazine. Red flags first started to fly when federal officials sat the provinces and other stakeholders down to say changes are coming to the 130-year-old Navigable Waters Protection Act (NWPA). It dictated where bridges and other obstructions to waterway navigation are allowed. The changes, including the name to the Navigation Protection Act (NPA), emerged with the government’s massive omnibus budget Bill C-45. It reveals that 97 lakes and 62 rivers – including the Ottawa and Rideau rivers, and the canal – are protected. That is down from over two million lakes and 8,500 rivers. The changes are often cited as the spark that lit the Idle No More campaign. When Sierra Club lawyers saw the new act and how it applies to Canadians, they all but threw their hands up. “We don’t know what it means,” Bennett said. TRAVEL RIVERS: FEDS

According to Transportation Canada media relations advisor Kelly James, the (NPA) will continue to regulate where bridges, docks and other structures can be built on Canada’s busiest waterways. But when it comes to local rivers, it’s business as usual.

“Regarding whether people will be prevented from being able to canoe or fish on these waterways: no, not at all,” James wrote in an email. “The Carp, Mississippi and Madawaska rivers are unscheduled waterways. The common law will continue to protect navigation on unscheduled waterways. The common law protects the right of navigation by treating things placed in water that interfere with navigation as obstructions that can be removed or abated if they cause damage or become a public nuisance.” She added that the right has been protected in the courts for centuries. However, having to appeal to the courts is the reason many groups fear canoers, hunters and others are at risk of losing the right to use non-protected rivers. It takes deep pockets, according to Lombardo, who says the changes mean a “marginalization” of anglers and hunters. “Relying on common law puts an undue onus on the angler and hunter to identify and challenge infringements on their rights to navigation, not to mention that very few of us can afford the time or money that is needed for this process,” Lombardo wrote. “The focus on commercial interests and lack of consideration for how important navigation is to recreational fishing and hunting works to devalue the enormous socioeconomic value of the recreational fishing and hunting industry in Canada.” PIPELINE INDUSTRY

Many stakeholders have wondered where the push to allow for obstructions to smaller waterways came from. It wasn’t from Canada’s $8.5 billion recreational fishing industry. But it appears it did come from an industry. Greenpeace Canada obtained a copy of a presentation to Ministry of Trade officials by the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association containing a list of changes it wanted made to bolster business. The Conservatives have since removed teeth from many of Canada’s environmental laws. It is possible that provincial governments could take over and enact stringent regulations and enforcement measures. Bennett doesn’t think that is likely. Many provinces are cashstrapped as it is, he said. Since the NWPA came into being, in 1882, the national government has had a hand in controlling the use of resources in the world’s second largest country.

Museum of Nature heads to the Arctic for latest exhibit Steph Willems

EMC news - A vast portion of our country’s landmass lies far removed from the gaze of most Canadians, which is why the Museum of Nature wants to shed light on it. The Canadian Museum of Nature launched its latest exhibit – Extraordinary Arctic – on April 3, allowing visitors to explore the landscape, wildlife, culture and history of the Canadian Arctic. The exhibit coincides with the 100th anniversary of the start of the Canadian Arctic Exhibition of 1913, a five-year voyage by government scientists that mapped and catalogued the geography, wildlife and culture of the region. Calling the expedition “an important milestone in Canadian science and exploration,” museum president and CEO Meg Beckel said about 60 per cent of the museum’s research and collections programs have an Arctic focus, often with national and international partners. “These collaborations provide insights and discoveries about the indigenous plants and animals from these vast parts of Canada,” she said. Beckel said that last year the museum launched a five-year plan to “inspire and engage audiences” in Canada and overseas. The end of this initiative will coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, when a permanent gallery devoted to the Arctic will be opened. The series of events and activities planned for the month include the Ottawa premiere of the 2011 National Film Board production Van-

Laurel McIvor, project leader for education programs at the Canadian Museum of Nature, demonstrates an igloo-building exhibit during the launch of the museum’s month-long Extraordinary Arctic festival. ishing Point on April 11, a tale of two Inuit communities in Canada and Greenland. Weekend activities will serve to engage children and their parents. Among them, an inter-


active igloo-building activity will allow kids to experience the precision needed to build the traditional Inuit structure, using pre-formed foam blocks.

Kids can also learn some of the Inuktitut language, learn traditional throat singing, drumming and dancing, as well as play games. For the duration of the exhibit, visitors can look at the artifacts and samples returned to Ottawa from the 1913-18 expedition. David Gray, a researcher, filmmaker and historian who serves on a Parks Canada committee for Northern national parks, was on hand for the launch and will present information and artifacts during an April 27 appearance. Gray is set to embark on a month-long expedition to Banks Island – located on the southwestern edge of the Arctic archipelago – starting in July. Accompanying him will be five other team members, plus local guides. “We have a ship’s captain, a (crewmember) who’s also a descendent of one of the men who died on the (1913) expedition, so he’s going to look for his great-great uncle’s remains,” said Gray. “Another woman is also a descendent of an expedition member; her and two cousins are going. They’re looking for the family connection, the genealogical connection.” The expedition will stop at 10 sites visited by the 1913 expedition. The first point – Sachs Harbour – is named after the ship Mary Sachs, which was beached on the remote coast during the expedition. Gray’s first visit to the north, in 1968, was to study the rebounding population of muskox on Banks Island. He has been back to the North, in one capacity or another, almost every year since.

Naturopathic doctor opens IV suite at ecowellness centre Derek Dunn

EMC news - Even as a little girl sticking needles in dolls, Leesa Kirchner knew she was destined for a life in medicine. But her experiences with doctors and the traditional medical system also left her wanting. It wasn’t until she was a young woman living in Montreal, while preparing for medical school, that she had an encounter with what would become her true calling. “There was always something not sitting right when I would see a doctor and get a prescription,” she said. “I would always leave frustrated.” Then a friend who was also an undergraduate in the sciences told her about naturopathic medicine. Kirchner agreed to see an acupuncture specialist about a chronic condition she was dealing with, and the results were star-

tling. “Two weeks later I was fine,” Kirchner said from the office she moved into in February. She is one of about eight Canadian with a fellowship designation from the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (FABNO). It means she has demonstrated competence in both naturopathic and conventional medical oncology, and has met the highest standard of the profession. That also means she champions an “integrative” approach with patients. Kirchner will study a patient’s medical history, learn the medications and other pertinent aspects, then develop a strategy to compliment the conventional treatments (including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, and surgery.) “It’s not what I say versus what (their oncologist) says. I try to work with them. I’ll send a letter to their doctor explaining what

Thank you

we are doing, and 99 per cent of the time they are OK with it,” she said. “It’s not about interfering with chemotherapy, but complimenting it. Otherwise, what’s the point?” There are certain plants and nutrients that are proven to offset the painful effects of conventional treatment, such as hand-and-foot syndrome - whereby skin easily falls off - susceptibility to infections due to a decrease in white blood cells, and others. Along with simple dietary changes and a manageable exercise routine, Kirchner has seen success with cancer and pre-cancerous patients. However, it is the IV vitamin C therapy that is generating the most interest. It is a first for the area. Some in the field of naturopathic medicine distrust and are even antagonistic toward conventional treatments - especially drugs provided by Big Pharma. But Kirchner is all about results. “I’m not an anti-pharmaceuticals,” she said. “I’d like to see them broaden their horizons and do research where it is needed.” A major reason naturopathic remedies are not always endorsed by mainstream medical leaders is because studies related to these approaches end with “shows promise” and “more research needed.” Only Big Pharma has pockets deep enough to do that research. That’s why Kirchner and others would like to see some profits from pharmaceutical companies directed toward what they do best - research. LIVES NEARBY

Pest Control

Kirchner has about a decade of experience in her profession, starting out in private practice before becoming chief medical officer of an integrative cancer centre in Ottawa. She then realized she fits best in a private practice setting, and since she was living in nearby Constance Lake, she finally took up Carp Ridge founder Katherine Willow’s offer. “I was pleased to join the Carp Ridge Ecowellness Centre since I am aware that it is an integral part of the community.” Kirchner finds working with Willow,


Naturopathic Dr. Leesa Kirchner is the latest specialist to join the team at Carp Ridge Natural Health Clinic. She uses various medicines and methods to help mitigate the effects of cancer treatment. Kirchner is also a strong proponent of active prevention when it comes to working with those in a pre-cancerous condition. whose approach has inspired strong admirers and some detractors, has resulted in a solid balance. “I believe our practice styles compliment each other really well and we can both benefit and learn from each other.” On Saturday, April 13, from 1 to 3 p.m., Kirchner hosts a discussion on naturopathic cancer care and the IV suite.

Aries, take time to sort through some of the paperwork on your desk. You could find there is something important that you overlooked that needs to be addressed. There are a few things you can’t seem to work out in your head, Taurus. A better idea may be to put everything on paper and perhaps the answer will jump out. Gemini, there will be a few moments this week when you seem to have a breakthrough. Maybe it’s in a relationship or you have just the right answers at work. Surprising events are in store as you continue to change your views about life-altering events, Cancer. You may find your master plan is entirely turned on its head. Leo, your energy level is so revved up that others won’t be able to keep up with you. You may have to slow down a little to let others catch up. Virgo, others find it difficult to change your opinion once you have your mind set on something. But it still helps to consider if the direction you’re heading is the right way.

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!

Libra, you may be feeling a little homesick, especially if you are away on business or on vacation. Try to make the most of the situation even if you’re feeling nostalgic. Scorpio, if it seems like nothing is going your way, keep in mind there is a master plan in the works. You may not be able to see the resolution, but just be patient. Sagittarius, there are a few puzzle pieces that you need to get into place and then you’ll have everything worked out. Reward yourself with a night out. Capricorn, lay low for awhile rather than drumming up some trouble. Tempting as it is to stir the pot, it may cause more difficulties for you in the long run. Aquarius, although you have a few projects on your to-do list, you can’t seem to get started. Instead of looking at the entire list, tackle one task at a time and you’ll get the job get done. Pisces, turn your thoughts to creative efforts and you’ll find the days will just fly by. Before you know it, the weekend will be here.
