Food cupboard honours volunteers ‘It’s amazing to me that so many of you give so much of your time’: chair Jessica Cunha

Hydro Ottawa is increasing the supply of clean energy, bringing innovative solutions to energyconscious consumers and businesses, and taking steps to green its own operations. In recognition of these efforts, Hydro Ottawa was distinguished as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the third consecutive year. Hydro Ottawa is the largest municipally-owned producer of green power in Ontario. Its renewable energy facilities include hydroelectric generators at Chaudière Falls and landfill gas-to-energy generators at the Trail Road and Laflèche Landfills. Together these facilities help to reduce greenhouse gases by almost 200,000 metric tons of CO2 per year. The company is also greening its operations. It has consistently achieved well over 90 per cent nonhazardous waste diversion, added more hybrid and flex-fuel vehicles to its fleet, and increased efficiencies at its office facilities and substations. “It is our responsibility not only to provide electricity, but also to help people use our product efficiently – which saves money on their bills, and helps protect the environment,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. “I’m proud to say that Ottawa has embraced our challenge to conserve, and together we are making a significant difference.” Ottawa residents and businesses have saved more than 500 million kilowatt-hours over the past six years through participating in Hydro Ottawa’s energy conservation programs. That’s the equivalent of taking more than 52,000 homes off the grid for a year. Find easy ways to go green and reduce your electricity consumption at conservation.

EMC news - Volunteers are the life blood of any community organization. This was the message delivered to the people who generously give their time to the Kanata Food Cupboard during a volunteer appreciation evening on April 17. “This evening is about the volunteers,” said Marc Dumais, chair of the food cupboard. “It’s about you folks.” The organization honoured an individual volunteer and a volunteer group for their efforts. This year, Rita Bryce was presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award. Board member Wayne Tay-

lor said Bryce is “a long-serving volunteer who volunteers at the warehouse (on) Wednesdays and during our Christmas season. She is also a key player in the kitchen top-up program at the main site each Monday.” The food cupboard relies on her “leadership and help,” said Taylor. “She’d be a hard one to replace.” Client co-ordinator Karen Waters said Bryce is “one of those people we can rely on.” The Volunteer Group of the Year Award was presented to the Kanata Food Cupboard Grocery Store Pickup Teams. “(They) pick up all the food donations at our local grocery stores every Monday and Friday in all kinds of weather and road conditions,” said Taylor. 11,000 HOURS

More than 11,000 volunteer hours were logged in 2012, said Dumais. “I just want to thank each and every one of you,” he said. “It’s amazing to me that so many of you give so much of your time.”


Rita Bryce, right, is presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award by Kanata Food Cupboard board member Wayne Taylor during a volunteer appreciation evening on April 17. The Kanata Food Cupboard helped more than 2,500 families last year, compared to 1,600 in 2011. More than 5,700 adults and more than 4,400 children received assistance from the organization in 2012, compared to 4,600 adults and 3,400 children the previous year.

“Every year we see an increase in the need in our community,” said Dumais. With a growing client demand and new projects, including the grocery store concept, the food cupboard ran a deficit for the first time in 2012. The organization was in the red more than $31,100, with revenues coming in at $199,800 and expenses sitting at $230,900. In 2011 revenues sat at $238,000 while expenses totalled $216,000. Although the organization is planning for another deficit in 2013, Dumais said the food cupboard is planning to expand its fundraising initiatives and get back into the black.

Busted bus shelters to remain glass-less in Kanata South Coun. Alan Hubley tells OC Transpo to delay repairs to bus shelters in his ward to save money Laura Mueller

EMC news - Coun. Alan Hubley is hoping Kanata South residents can live without glass walls in their bus shelters if vandals break them this summer. The councillor put his ward forward for a pilot project to see whether the city can save money by waiting until the fall to replace broken glass in the 48 bus shelters in his ward. “We have to find ways to save money,” he said. “I’m hoping most people in Kanata (South) will be

willing to take a bit of discomfort to help us catch people who are doing this.” Summer is obviously the best time to try this out because there is less of a need to protect people waiting for the bus from inclement weather, Hubley said. Hubley couldn’t provide a number on how much the city spends to replace broken bus-shelter glass, but he said it’s hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for the entire city. Hubley had initially asked staff to find if there was another, less expensive material for bus shelters, but staff found no other feasible op-

tions. The summer moratorium on replacing broken shelter glass goes into effect May 1. The city will be putting large stickers on the glass of all bus shelters in Kanata South to encourage people to call Crime Stoppers if they come across a shelter that has been vandalized. Hubley couldn’t say how much the city will be spending on the stickers. The councillor donated $500 to Crime Stoppers to offer rewards for people who report information about vandals. “We want to get people thinking about reporting the damage if they see it,” Hubley said. If you see any vandalism – of a bus shelter or anything else – call 911 immediately to report a crime in progress, Hubley said.


These Crime Stoppers stickers will soon adorn bus shelters in Kanata South after Coun. Allan Hubley agreed to a pilot project to delay replacing broken glass at bus shelters in his ward.

Glen Cairn church to host East Coast-style kitchen party Kathryn Young-Davies

EMC news - The lighthouse is under construction, sou’westers have been oiled and the choirs are rehearsing for Ceilidh in the Glen – a variety show celebrating the music of Canada’s East Coast. The choirs of Glen Cairn United Church, plus Stained Glass Band and Sounds, a group of local high school students, will turn the church into a warm and friendly kitchen party on April 27.

The audience can sing along to “I’se the B’y” and a medley of Stompin’ Tom Connors tunes, in honour of the prolific singer-songwriter who passed away in March. One of the massed choir numbers will be “Song for the Mira” and indeed, the lyrics could have been written about the people of the church: “Out on the Mira the people are kind.

Resource centre honours this year’s outstanding volunteers Volunteers make the community an important place: MPP Tyler Costello

EMC news - A west end community resource centre gathered in the Christ Church in Bells Corners to honour its squad of community volunteers. “All of you here today, in your own small way, have a very large part in making our city and our community a very important place,” said Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa McLeod as she spoke to those gathered. “Volunteerism has made this country, it has aided this province,” she said as she thanked the volunteers on behalf of the Ontario legislature. The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre handed out the Eva

James Award as well as several volunteer service pins. The pins were given to volunteers who had been serving for two, five, 10, 15 and 20 years. The Eva James Award, handed out by the resource centre every year since 1999, is given to a volunteer who best personifies commitment and dedication exemplified by Eva James. James, who passed away in 1995, was a dedicated volunteer worker for more than 15 years and is credited with forming and implementing the community resource centre. Anne Marie Goodman received the Eva James Award for her volunteer work with the OEYC Baby and Me Drop-in program. Goodman has been volunteering with the resource centre for more than seven years and credited her late friend Phyllis McLean for getting her into volunteering. Goodman, who has worked as a nurse and a physical education teacher, said she looks forward to every

Thursday when she volunteers with the drop-in program. The resource centre, incorporated in 1986, partners with others to develop, provide and co-ordinate accessible community, health and social services for all members of the community. Coun. Allan Hubley also presented the resource centre with a cheque for $2,000 on behalf of the Kanata Legion.

EMC news - The Black Keys will play the opening night of Ottawa’s biggest musical festival, RBC Bluesfest, on July 4, said festival executive director Mark Monahan at an April 18 announcement. “In terms of name drop power, it’s a great addition,” he said. The Black Keys are the duo of vocalist and guitarist Dan Auerback and drummer-producer Patrick Carney, and have won several Grammy Awards. Last time the Black Keys played Bluesfest, in 2011, a massive rainstorm soaked concert-goers and delayed the show until 10:20 p.m., sending the act past the festival’s 11 p.m. curfew. “We’re hoping to start the show a little earlier,” Monahan said. “It can only get better.” He also said ticket sales have been much higher than in past years. It’s led the organizers to limit the total number of tickets sold per night to 25,000, which Monahan expects to hit on half the nights. Monahan said 99 per cent of the festival lineup has now been confirmed. He said it’s a tricky balance to find what is missing from each year’s lineup and booking in new bands who have availability. Bluesfest also released the stages and times of acts on April 18 on the website at

with a considerable amount of knowledge. But would this be the case if I allowed them unrestricted use of the computer every day? I have my doubts. After all, what is rare is valuable. In my opinion, the novelty of the computer contributed greatly to the success Mitra’s experiments and my own. It can be tough for parents to know how to control technology. With touch screens, parents are replacing everything from books to real-life activities like tea parties with tablet apps, where a single swipe of a finger allows kids to experience instant gratification. As any parent knows, the devices tend to keep even the youngest children quiet for extended periods.


I was skeptical. I thought, given an hour or more of free time would trigger my kids – who are extremely screenstarved at home – to scope out free video games. Instead, my eight-year-old decided to look for information on roman numerals. Within 30 minutes, he’d sourced a chart of roman numerals from one to 100, which he transcribed onto a piece of paper. Midway through his session, he said, “Mom, if I know the letters for one, five, 10, 50 and 100, I can count all the way to 988 in roman numerals.� Impressive. So far the experiment was working. With Romans still on his mind, he searched for information on imperialist war-training. All around, they came away from the experiment




he other day, I surprised my children by giving them an hour of “free time� on my laptop. They were especially skeptical because the day before, I’d been on a radio panel playing the role of the mother who is militantly against screens at home. A TED Talk inspired me to divert from my position temporarily. Following a number of experiments in which he connected children in remote villages of India to the Internet, Sugata Mitra concluded the following: “In nine months, a group of children left alone with a computer in any language, would reach the same standard as an office secretary in the West.� The cool thing about Mitra’s findings is that none of the children in the experiments understood a word of English when they started, yet they managed to garner the language skills required to navigate the computer, learn information well beyond their years and put it into context. Amazing, right?

One of Boston’s finest hours


ragedies bring out the best and the worst in people. In the case of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on April 15, the worst is painfully obvious. Three people dead, including an eight-year-old boy, and more than 100 others injured. This was an attempt to create terror, to hurt people, possibly to make a political statement. When the bombs went off, a flood of people rushed onto the streets. At first, it was a knee-jerk reaction to the horror and confusion of the scene. But almost immediately afterwards, another, larger flood of people rushed towards the site of the blasts, nurses, doctors, paramedics and emergency workers helping the victims and sealing off the area. Runners stranded en route to the finish line were surrounded by Boston residents who offered them clothing, water, warm clothing and cellphones to contact their loved ones. If this was one of Boston’s worst hours, it was also one of its finest. This act of terror did not have the presumably desired effect, if the reactions of some of the runners we spoke to following the blast is anything to judge by. Many runners praised the marathon and said they

hoped to compete in it again. Ottawa will play host to its own prestigious running event, Ottawa race weekend on May 24 and 25. Following the explosions at the Boston Marathon, Ottawa race weekend organizers acknowledged that the attack made them more conscious about security surrounding the annual race. But it certainly won’t stop them from holding the event. Terrorists have tried in the past to instill a culture of fear surrounding large public gatherings – for instance the backpack bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics Games that killed two people and injured 120. But every Olympics since has simply grown bigger and better. And the athletes and the fans continue to flock to the events. Acts of terrorism are hard to predict and difficult to completely prevent, however they are rare events and have a negligible effect on public opinion, except to make them more security conscious. The Boston Marathon bombing is no different. The resiliency of the fans and runners in the face of a horrific crime is one more example of tragedy bringing out the best in people.


Life on Mars: the job-cutting economics of science fiction


ew people realize the connection between economics and science fiction, but the similarities are dramatic. Most obvious, is the language component. The jargon-laden gibberish spoken by economists closely resembles the techno-slang uttered by space warriors. For one there is incentivization and confronting redundancies, for the other there is the antigravity field and the leap to hyperspace — both equally intelligible. But there are other similarities, such as the common belief in vaporization. This is most apparent when attacks on budget deficits are in season, as they are now. Both corporate and governmental decision-makers are vigorously seeking to better their bottom line. At tax time, we in Ottawa know what those who are doing the cutting think: they reduce their costs and their bottom line looks better. For a corporation, that means increased value for shareholders; for a government, it means applause from the media and some of the voters. Thus, you get events like government cuts to the compliance program of the Canada Revenue Agency, which will involve about 300 full-time jobs.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town across the country, one of them opened only last year. The move has been deplored in the scientific community. No figures about jobs lost have been released, but you know there will be some. We can leave to more learned people the assessment of the efficiencies involved. Can more really be done with less, as the job-slashers always insist? There’s always a first time. More important, and less frequently examined, is the question of what happens to those people whose jobs are lost. Somehow an assumption is made that these cuts have no impact. Those who lose their jobs happily trundle off to other jobs. Or, perhaps, they just vanish, leaving blameless employers happily to contemplate their improved bottom line. The concept of the vaporized unemployed fits nicely with the theory that societal happi-

Published weekly by:




ness is the sum of all the corporate and governmental bottom lines. But what if laid-off people don’t actually disappear? What if they turn up at some other office looking for work? And what if that office is in the process of confronting redundancies too? What you have then is a number of people who are out of work, who can’t buy things, who pay less or no taxes. That doesn’t help the economy. The more cuts are made, the more of such people there are. Assuming they are not vaporized. In addition to the economic cost are the human costs — children who have to do without, parents who can’t afford day care. There are certainly corporate and government economists out there who can explain how this benefits our society, but their explanations escape me right now. When governments say they want to crack down on tax evasion, how does that go with laying off some of the people involved in that? When governments say that job creation is their aim, how is that aim advanced by eliminating jobs? Perhaps in outer space, it works, where the rules may be different. Perhaps in outer space, you can create jobs by cutting jobs. Perhaps in outer space that’s the usual way of doing things.

8 Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, April 25, 2013

Not having any knowledge to the contrary, we can imagine that, in outer space, budget deficits can be put into a transporter and made to vanish into another galaxy. We can imagine that jobs can be created with a Laser Job Creation Apparatus (patent pending). It is a bit harder to imagine that down here. If the jobless are vaporized, who are all those folks down at the food bank? Yet it clearly is part of the belief systems of those who are making the big decisions. It can’t do any hard harm to cut 300 jobs, they reason. Actually, it will do good. Yeah, that’s the ticket. It works on Mars.

Preface rules: will this make my kids happy? Continued from page 7

Hanna Rosin – the author of The End of Men and no stranger to controversy – wrote an article in The Atlantic last month in which she concludes parents are altogether too militant about restricting use of technology, particularly touch-screen. In “The Touch-Screen Gen-

eration,” Rosin discounts the idea that screens displace time spent interacting with adults. She writes off research that has linked attention deficit disorder (ADD) and screens, labelling it fear-mongering. In the end, she becomes a convert, allowing her threeyear-old unrestricted access and accepting the brilliance of apps for toddlers, includ-

ing one of her favourites, Toca Tea Party. When I first read Rosin’s piece, I thought “maybe I have been too militant.” But at the end of the day, I preface all rule-making decisions with a question: Will this make my kids happy? And there’s really nothing about screen technology that will contribute to my chil-

dren’s happiness. Screen time may not displace time spent interacting

most of all, pro-social activities, like talking and playing make-believe with friends – which may or may not include spilling real tea on the real floor and having to address the real-life consequences of that.

Library branches honour long-time volunteers Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Glen Cairn’s Elinor Montgomery was honoured for her 45 years of volunteering with the Beaverbrook library last week. Montgomery is responsible for the Kanata Room – which will again be located in the West District Library once construction is complete. The room is dedicated to newspapers, news letters and historical artifacts on the people, places and events that make Kanata the community it is. “This library and this community should be proud of it,” said librarian Patricia Skarzynski. Volunteers with the Hazeldean and Beaverbrook libraries came together at the south Kanata location and were honoured for their commitments to the branches on Friday, April 19. Anne Harrop was honoured for her 36 years volunteering with the Beaverbrook branch. Harrop helped bring international books to the library. She decided to retire this year. The Hazeldean branch honoured Cathy Ternan, volunteering for 15 years, and Barbara Sue Baker, who devoted 14 years to the library. Both are retiring this year. “They managed to keep thousands of books going longer than they should have,” said Skarzynski, adding patrons could hear the two laugh-

ing on Tuesday mornings as they fixed pages. “It was about mending books, but it was also about having fun.” GIFT OF TIME

The theme of this year’s volunteer appreciation event was “the gift of time is priceless,” said Skarzynski. “This is what our volunteers give to us. “We’re all very busy,” she added. “For all of you who do things at the library … it just adds so much to the community, it adds so much to our organization.” Rupert Yeung, with the library settlement program – which helps immigrants adjust to life in Canada – said the volunteers embody what it means to be Canadian. “Giv(ing) back to the community, it’s a part of Canadian culture,” he said. The program offers newcomers language training, help finding employment and housing, education opportunities, tips on becoming selfemployed and computer classes. “The strength and heart of who we are is from our volunteers,” said Jan Harder, chair of the Ottawa Public Library board. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley added the event was “a great way to launch volunteer week.”

Rain barrels help the environment Continued from page 13 1025.R0011697930

“It’s obviously helpful during a drought – that’ll keep your gardens going,” said 14year-old Nick D’Entremont, a Venturer with 3rd Kanata Scouts. “They cut down on environmental costs.”

“Where Smiles Come Alive”

It’s really important that people reserve (a rain barrel).

For a beautiful & lasting smile… you have options!


The rain collectors are made from recycled food barrels. “They are extremely durable,” said Jan Stodola, a leader with the 7th Kanata Scouts, based out of the Briarbrook, Brookside and Morgan’s Grant area. “Because they’re reused, they’re not going to a landfill.” Sandra Redshaw, a leader with the 3rd Kanata Scouts based in Bridlewood, said she uses her barrel to water her gardens. “It works great,” she said, adding that a tablespoon of cooking oil (olive, vegetable, etc.) in the water will help keep mosquitoes at bay by creating a film over the liquid.

Romina Park proposal has ‘a little bit of everything’: resident Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The public consultation for the proposed design of Romina Park drew a handful of residents on April 18. The concept for the neighbourhood park, located off Romina Street in Bridlewood Trails, features a large green space to accommodate multiple uses, two play structures – one for preschool age children

and one for older kids – a puddle rink, rink light and storage bunker, a sliding hill, swing structure, trails and benches. The budget for the onehectare park is $400,000. “I like how they’ve incorporated a little bit of everything,” said Cory Maheux, who attended the meeting with his wife Kim. “The only thing we’re worried about is noise.” The Maheuxs live in the house closest to the edge of

the park, about nine metres from the edge. Kim added their three-yearold son will be thrilled once the park is open. “He’s definitely going to enjoy it,” she said. “We’re excited to have it there.” Because of the small turnout for the meeting at the Kanata Recreation Complex, no formal presentation was held. Instead, the two landscape architects and Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley spoke with the residents and answered questions in an open house format. “I like it,” said Hubley. “This is really geared toward young families.” Melina Hazlewood, who attended with her fiancé Altan Zia, said she’d like to see a basketball court considered for the park. She said it wasn’t unusual to see up to 10 neighbourhood children playing pickup around a basketball hoop in a

neighbour’s driveway. “There are a lot of kids playing on the street,” said Hazlewood. “Our roads are narrow … I think it’s safer (if it’s in the park).” Zia said he’d like to see lots of trees in the area. “It’s important to have greenery like that. It makes a difference,” he said, adding “The layout itself is nice.” Diane Emmerson, a landscape architect, said all comments will be considered for the park. “We can work something out,” she said. “We’ll be considering all comments.” Construction on Romina Park is set to begin by early fall, with it opening in 2014. Emmerson added parks are designed to service different populations. A neighbourhood park, like Romina, is intended for the community that surrounds it. A community park, such as the Kristina Kiss Park which is currently under construction, is intended to serve a wider population and therefore has more amenities. Kristina Kiss Park, located at 100 Akerson Rd., has a $1.4 million budget. It will have a

Mayor’s Report RuRal Expo May 31st MaRk you CalEndaR By Jim Watson

When people think of Ottawa, the usual images come to most minds: the Parliament Buildings, the Rideau Canal in winter, the Ottawa River, the Byward Market, etc. These are important Ottawa institutions but they are all central in a city that is made up of an enormous landmass that extends far to the east, south, and west of those well-known landmarks. In fact, you can fit the entire landmasses of Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver within Ottawa’s boundaries and still have room to spare!

This makes Ottawa unique in Canada as we are both a large urban city and also the largest rural city in the country. The postcard images many associate with Ottawa mean that the rural areas of Ottawa can sometimes be forgotten. But from Greely, to Osgoode, to Carp, and beyond, Ottawa’s rural areas have an incredibly diverse set of offerings across the agriculture, culinary, and business sectors. These are critically important elements in our city and it is important that we do what we can to promote them to Ottawa’s residents and its visitors. That is why on Friday May 31, 2013 I will be hosting the Mayor’s Rural Expo at City Hall to showcase Ottawa’s amazing rural side. The Rural Expo will bring a sampling of these together at City Hall for a day that promises to be interesting and entertaining for visitors of all ages. There will be a variety of booths set up in Jean Pigott Place inside City Hall where visitors will be able to learn more about the wonderful variety of things Ottawa’s rural communities have to offer. The Rural Expo will be held in conjunction with the 9th annual Food Aid Day. The two events will both be held at City Hall, indoors in Jean Pigott Place for the Rural Expo and outdoors at Marion Dewar Plaza for Food Aid Day. I look forward to building on the success of Food Aid Day which for the past eight years has raised a tremendous amount of money for the Ottawa Food Bank. Why not drop by City Hall throughout the day on Friday May 31 and visit some of the great attractions and businesses from rural Ottawa.

Grandmothers group hosts fundraising fashion show Proceeds to benefit the Stephen Lewis Foundation Jessica Cunha

EMC news - A group of Kanata grandmothers will stitch fashion and philanthropy together on Wednesday, May 1. Kanata Grandmothers Together is hosting its sixth-annual fashion show and sale to benefit the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. The organization raises funds and awareness for African grandmothers raising their orphaned grandchildren who have lost their parents to AIDS. “If (people) support these grandmothers in Africa, it will give them a good feeling,” said Margaret Conrad, a member of the group. “People who come out for this event are coming out for a purpose, and that’s to help the grandmothers in Africa.” All the funds go directly to the people who need it most, added Conrad. The Stephen Lewis Foundation has workers on the ground to help the grandmothers and their

grandchildren, as well as to ensure the money goes directly to those who need it most. “We’re so well taken care of as grandmothers that we don’t have to worry about bringing up our grandchildren because our children died of AIDS,” she said. “They don’t get any assistance over there, to fund them, to bring up their grandchildren, to clothe them and feed them and send them to school. It’s important that we get the funds together to help the grandmothers.” ONE-OF-A-KIND

Aside from offering a helping hand, attendees will have the opportunity to see and purchase oneof-a-kind pieces by Judy Joannu Designs. “She has her own personal touch,” said Conrad, who lives in Kanata Lakes. “They’re so colourful this spring. There are a lot of prints and different designs … (and) very affordable too; that’s a nice thing about it.” It’s the first time Joannu, an Ashton resident, will show her pieces with the Kanata grandmothers, and Conrad said the show won’t disappoint. There are styles available for every taste. “This year her spring collection is designed from her time in Lon-

Past attendee a guest artist at this year’s Studio Tour 22nd annual event runs May 3 to 5 Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Amie Talbot has attended the Kanata Artists Studio Tour many times in the past as a member of the public, but this year she’ll contribute to the event for the first time as an artist. “When I was younger I went to them,” said the Morgan’s Grant artist. “Now I get to participate.” Talbot is one of three guest artists this year who will be partnered with a featured studio tour artist during the 22nd annual event. She is teamed with oil and watercolour artist David Farrar. “It’s nice to be teamed up with him,” said Talbot, who uses pencil crayons to create colourful art. Talbot is self taught. She chose the medium because “I had seen it done before and I was pretty amazed you could

do that with pencil crayons,” she said, adding she’s been studying and practicing her craft for seven years. Talbot, who owns a home cleaning company, said eventually she’d like to draw fulltime. “It’s almost a part of your identity,” she said. Other guest artists include RicharD Murphy, and Susan Ukkola, while feature artists include Karl Kischel, Beulah McLellan, Susan Goold, Judi Miller, Margaret (Peggy) Hughes, Elizabeth Potvin, Violeta Borisonik, Rosemary Randell, Janis Miller Hall and Farrar. Goold, a founding member of the tour, said she looks forward to the event every year. “It’s a nice way to introduce people to art,” said the Beaverbrook artist. “Year after year, we’ve had crowds come.” Goold uses watercolours

and acrylics to create her paintings. “I want to create visual poetry,” she said. “It’s just something I love to do.” She added Kanata is a great community to draw inspiration from. “Everything’s here,” she said. WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS

The Studio Tour will give people a close-up look at where the magic happens for each artist. Last year, more than 500 people attended the weekend art show. “It’s one-of-a-kind,” said Goold. Elizabeth Potvin said it’s as much a social event as it is about the art. “It’s fun,” she said about inviting people into her home studio in Kanata Lakes. “To have people come and just to have people look at your work. “This year we’ve really made a big effort to jazz

Para users shut out of Presto Non-universal payment system disadvantages people with disabilities Laura Mueller

EMC news - Presto payment cards will come into effect July 1 for OC Transpo – but not Para Transpo. Blocking riders who use both conventional transit and Para Transpo from using the Presto card unfairly disadvantages them, Para users told the transit commission on April 17. “To use a metaphor, we’re at the back of the bus,” said Kevin Kinsella, who uses a wheelchair and rides both Para and conventional transit. Kinsella said he would prefer to use Presto because it allows him to purchases passes and top up a cash balance at home, removing the need for him to navigate to an OC Transpo sales centre. The smart-card payment system approved by the commission on the same day will also be transferable,

said another delegate, Catherine Gardner. That means her companion could use her pass when she is not using it, but since Gardner won’t be able to use the cards on Para Transpo, she won’t get those benefits other transit users will receive. OC Transpo general manager John Manconi said he is very sensitive to the situation. He couldn’t explain why past transit management didn’t make the decision to adopt a payment system that works on the entire OC Transpo system, including Para Transpo. While he would prefer to see a Presto-based solution, Manconi said, that is “not an identified priority” for Metrolinx, the provincial agency that manages the Presto system. “We have told them that we are not waiting any further,” Manconi said. “We can either wait, or move on; we’ve moved on and we want to

find a solution for them.” The main challenge revolves around the community pass. It is a discounted pass that many Para Transpo users buy and it means they only have to top up their fare to use the Para vans, which cost more. Community passes can also be used on conventional buses and the O-Train. Gardner asked why OC Transpo wouldn’t allow her to show her Presto card to a Para Transpo operator, along the receipt showing she purchased a valid community pass on the card. Troy Charter, manager of transit operations, said it would be too complex to communicate that change to 180 Para operators, riders and the taxi drivers who support Para rides as part of the service – around 90 different drivers a day. “It may seem simple, but we want to make sure we provide a consistant

OC Transpo is working on a standalone electronic fare payment system for Para Transpo that would also be accepted on conventional OC Transpo vehicles.

service,” Charter said. Pat Scrimgeour, the manager of transit service and reporting, said receipts don’t have the security features that assure drivers a pass or transfer is valid. But Manconi emphasized the issue is not about a lack of trust of Para Transpo customers, but rath-

Green card gets the green light Transit commission OKs Presto card to launch July 1 Laura Mueller

EMC news - OC Transpo has the go-ahead to roll out Presto smart cards for fare payment on July 1. The cards won’t be compatible with the Presto system in the GTA – yet – and transit commissioners were concerned about the delay in updating the cards’ cash balance online, but those worries weren’t enough for the commission to put the brakes on the smart card fare system. Starting May 18, OC Transpo will begin to distribute 184,000 of the remaining 200,000 free Presto cards the city initially planned to give out last year. The launch was plagued with delays and the past year has been “difficult, complex and (a) resource intensive project,” but the system is now ready to go, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi told the transit commission on April 17. Transit commission chairwoman Coun. Diane Deans called the final decision to OK Presto a “historic


After a year of delays, transit commissioners agreed to support the full launch of the Presto smart card payment system for OC Transpo. The remaining 184,000 complimentary cards will be available starting May 18. They’ll go into use July 1. day” in Ottawa. After a year of delays, testing and tracking, the transit commission is more confident in moving forward with Presto now than it was a year ago, Deans added. As with any large, technical system, there will be glitches, Manconi said. But there are no system-wide issues that would cause concern, he added. “It certainly seems that we’ve turned the corner from a mood of cynicism to optimism,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. Beyond technical problems there are other nagging issues that bothered transit commissioners.

One issue is the 24- to 48-hour delay between when customers top up the cash balance on their cards and when they have access to use that money on a bus. A delay is undesirable, commissioners agreed, but if it’s unavoidable for technical reasons, Metrolinx should at least try to ensure the delay is consistent. A range causes confusion, said new commissioner Mark Johnson during his first meeting. “It would be good to have a defined time period so as to avoid customer confusion,” Johnson said. Manconi said he and OC Transpo

will come back at some time in the future with a better solution. Ottawa Presto cardholders won’t yet be able to tap their cards on Presto readers in Toronto or Hamilton. There is no date on when that might happen. The GTA system will be upgraded before the end of the year and then Metrolinx will be making the decision about when to upgrade Ottawa to that same system to ensure all cards work in both regions. A Presto replacement for paper tickets is not being addressed right now. For Para Transpo, the city will be spending $3 million to find an interim technological solution to bridge the gap between OC Transpo passes and the types of fare payments that are accepted on Para Transpo. GET A CARD

One of the main lessons learned over the past year was to avoid a big release of Presto cards all at once, Manconi said. “A staged and measured release is key,” he said, but the number 1 objective is still to get the card into people’s hands and get them using it. Cards will be available in a number of ways. During the test period, demand for cards was highest through the website,, and that’s the first spot most riders will

be able to get one on May 18. Starting May 27, riders will be able to pick up a card at city client service centres, OC Transpo sales and information centres, as well as Transitway stations on a rotating schedules. Select library branches across the city will also begin distributing the cards starting June 3. OC Transpo will have Presto outreach targeted at park-and-ride pass holders on May 17 and 18. Other selected groups, including seniors, community pass holders and certain community organizations and health centres will also be the focus of OC Transpo’s efforts to distribute Presto cards over the summer. Ecopass holders will be able to get a Presto card as their annual passes expire between August and October. COSTS

The overall cost to adopt the Presto system in Ottawa has gone up to $34.2 million, but the city will only pay $31.2 million – the rest will be covered by Metrolinx. The provincial agency had already committed to reimbursing the city for around $3 million to cover the cost of delays and lost revenue due to the delays. Metrolinx has now agreed to cover another $1.5 million in costs. It’s important to remember that saving money isn’t the intent of moving to a smart-card payment system, Manconi said. The idea is to provide better service that attracts more riders, he said.

Re-instate rural Para Transpo: riders Laura Mueller

EMC news - Changes to accessible transit service in rural areas made a year ago aren’t working, say riders who pleaded for the transit commission to reinstate Para Transpo service. Instead of running Para Transpo vans to transport disabled people within rural areas, OC Transpo decided to provide funding to community service organizations that provide rides. While it may have sounded like a good idea at the time, the change has left people stranded and isolated, said Adele Muldoon, a West Carleton resident who spoke to the transit commission on April 17 on behalf of the Council on Aging. Some of the community-based services only run during business hours during the week and none of them are equipped to transport people who are confined to wheelchairs or scooters. “Every Ottawa citizen should have the opportunity to participate in community life,” Muldoon said. Commissioning taxis to pick up the slack is not a viable solution, since the companies usually refuse to send cabs to far-flung rural areas, Muldoon said. The city considers the changes to be a success. In the past year, community service agencies have been able to provide an addi-

tional 4,557 trips at an operating cost of $51 per trip – much lower than the cost of running a Para van, which is $77 per trip. Through the service agencies, clients are also able to travel beyond city limits and book their trips up to two weeks in advance, whereas Para Transpo bookings must be made on the same day the person wants to travel. Brenda Brake uses a wheelchair and has been a Para Transpo rider for eight years. She’s from Manotick and the village is home to her friends, family and her doctor, but Brake hasn’t been able to make it to a doctor’s appointment for the past year because she now lives in Barrhaven – the urban area. That is due to a separate but related issue – Para service is overloaded and the process of booking a ride is harried and inconsistent, she said. But even if she does manage to get to Manotick, she would have to take Para Transpo back to Barrhaven in order to get a ride to the home of a friend or family member in Manotick. Some of the transit commissioners sympathized. While the commission’s chairwoman, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, left the room to speak to the media with OC Transpo general manager John Manconi, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson was directing staff to look at consulting disabled transit users in the rural area about their needs. Public consultations on Para Transpo are already slated for this

summer, she said, so staff should use that opportunity to get a full picture of the challenges disabled transit users face, especially in the rural areas. The issue affects just under 100 people who need accessible transit service in the city’s rural areas, Wilkinson said. She wants staff to review their specific needs and suggestions that could improve their access to transit. Encourging riders to book shorter trips on Para Transpo is one way, Harder said. Perhaps Para could serve more people if riders could book a trip from their door to an accessible transit station and take conventional transit for the bulk of their trips, she said. “Certainly an interesting approach but it’s a very big question,” said Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit planning and reporting. Para Transpo has a mandate to provide door-to-door service, and while riders can request a shorter trip, they are not encouraged to do that, he added. There is a need for Ottawa to look at a largescale rethink of how it wants to provide transit service for disabled people, said John Manconi, the general manager of OC Transpo. “We need a large-scale policy discussion with some difficult dialogue around eligibility and what rules you want to use,” Manconi said. It would involve significant financial considerations Manconi wasn’t prepared to address at the April 17 meeting.

City Councillor, Kanata North TIME CAPSULES HAVE ARRIVED! In order to fund items that the City doesn’t provide in our new recreation complex, a number of fund raising initiatives have been undertaken. You can leave something for your children and their descendants by participating in our Time Capsule project. We have bamboo containers that are 100 mm long and 66 mm in diameter, which you can fill with items to be viewed in 50 years. For $20 (cash or cheque) you can bring your items to one of our locations, fill your canister and receive a certificate with the number of your canister to leave for your heirs. No liquids, gels, batteries or other items that may degrade the canister are permitted, so each canister will be checked as you fill it. These are only available at designated times and places. The first three are during the Scout Bike Sale on April 27, 9 - 11 am, Mlacak arena; before Ward Council at 6:30 pm on April 29 at the Senior’s Centre, 2500 Campeau Dr; and at my meet and greet at Loblaws, Kanata Centrum on April, 4 9:30 - 11:00 am. Other times and locations will be listed on my website as they are organized. COMMUNITY TOWN HALL (formerly called Ward Council) Since the Ward Councils I hold each month are more like a Town Hall meeting, where you can participate in discussing community issues, I’ve decided to rename it as a Community Town Hall. This month hear and discuss new developments such as a new MacDonald’s, progress on the library, urban expansion lands, Richcraft Recreation Complex, bus routes, school projects, concerns with speeding and more. I’d like your views on the proposed new policies which would restrict my involvement with community activities and suggestions on what is needed in our communities. A more detailed agenda will be in my e-newsletter that will be distributed next week. If you are not yet receiving it go to my website and register to receive it. COMMUNITY RECOGNITION AWARDS Remember to nominate a person from Kanata North who has made an exceptional contribution to make our community a better place. This will be the inaugural year of these awards. Four awards will be given – for a youth (19 or younger), senior (65 or older), citizen of the year and business of the year. The work of volunteers makes a huge difference to people in our community. Kanata would not be the same without their efforts, so help to give them the recognition they deserve. Nomination forms are available from my office and the Beaverbrook Library depot or online at 2013 URBAN SYMPOSIUM Last week I attended a Symposium in Mississauga that covered a range of topics and provided timely information. A really good discussion called “The Citizen Dashboard” dealt with open government and civic engagement. It included ways of reaching people on issues so that they can provide meaningful input. One topic was development of citizen budgets, and another was easy-to-understand communications such as Dazzling Notices (notices that are visually attractive, as well as informative). We went on a walking tour of Mississauga’s regenerated and vibrant town centre. Meetings like this and informal dialogue with municipal council members and staff are a great help to me in dealing with issues in our own community and City. I’ll be discussing what I have learned with my colleagues and the community.


Cleaning up the community The Briarbrook and Morgan’s Grant Community Association held its annual spring clean-up on Saturday, April 20. More than 30 determined volunteers braved the cool temperatures to pick-up more than 60 bags of litter, plus a number of large items from our streets and parks. The next big community association event is a tree planting day on May 11.

Mary grows her own garden using seed catalogue


he Steele-Briggs seed catalogue was now mine. Mother’s order had long since arrived. It came when the snow was deep around the house, and the sprigs of vegetables poking through the ground in the garden were still a long way off. All over the house, for weeks, Mother had been urging little flat wood boxes of earth to show signs of life. These boxes emerged every year, filled with earth by Father, and until it was time to plant the sprouts out in the garden, they sat on benches and chairs, watched and watered by Mother. The window sills were too narrow to hold the boxes, and so finding a place to sit in the kitchen was often a challenge this time of year. When Mother first planted the seeds that would have arrived in the mail COD, I was wild with excitement. I checked every day to see if anything had sprung up, but after days and days of constant vigilance, I lost interest, and instead concentrated on the seed catalogues, for which I had great plans.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Using one of the roughlined scribblers Mother had bought from Ritz’s Drug Store in Renfrew on the One-CentSale, I re-created my very own seed catalogue. When I was finished, it didn’t at all look like the Steele-Briggs one that came in wintertime. The first thing I did was cut out all the pictures in the catalogue that were in colour. This job alone could wile away many hours at the kitchen table in the evening. Then I sorted the pictures in two piles ... one for vegetables and one for flowers. When that job was finished, I next arranged the flowers into little piles, with my very favourites on top, and my least favourite ones on the bottom. I was especially fond of the pictures of the roses. The red ones. And there were pink and

yellow ones too, but the blood-red ones, I thought were very special. Mother never ordered roses, which was a big disappointment to me, but she said the ground out at Northcote wasn’t good enough for rose bushes. My sister Audrey said it had more to do with the hard work involved in looking after rose bushes than it had to do with the soil. Even when I told Audrey I would be glad to look after them, she said we would never see rose bushes on the farm at Northcote and to put the idea out of my mind! And so I had to content myself with pictures cut out of the Steele-Briggs seed catalogue. I was at the stage in my life when I loved to draw. And so I drew little gardens on

each page of the big scribbler with the rough pages and the shiny black cover. I coloured the pages with my crayons, and I thought I had done a good enough job to even take the finished book to show Miss Crosby at the Northcote School. Again, my sister Audrey advised me to keep it at home, since it may cause bad Marguirite to go into a fit of jealousy, and goodness knows what that could mean! There was no money for anything fancy like a little bottle of mucilage. Mother did something magically with boiled water and flour, and we used that to stick paper-to-paper and it worked perfectly well. And so I would begin to create my very own catalogue. The roses went onto a page first. The red ones. Another page of drawings, and then the pink roses, and finally, the yellow ones. By the time I had worked through all the little piles of cut-out flowers and pasted them into the scribbler, each separated by a crayon-coloured drawing, the scribbler was so fat, it was impossible to keep it closed.

But if nothing else, those scribblers were a bargain. There were still plenty of empty pages left for the pictures of my favourite vegetables. I was never that fond of turnips or cabbages, but blood-red tomatoes and green cucumbers, yellow beans, and radishes, all had their own pages in my ‘seed catalogue’. My brother Emerson, who was a far better artist that I was, and never let me forget it, laughed at my attempt at drawing gardens in my scribbler. But Mother said my pictures reminded her of the big calendar we got from Scott’s Hardware that year which was a country scene taken by a real camera. And that was good enough for me! When finally, the little wood boxes of earth scattered all over the house started to sprout, and finally grow a few inches, my interest was renewed. I again looked every day to see their growth, even though my sister Audrey reminded me “a watched pot never boils,” which I finallly realized had nothing to do with a pot on the stove.

I kept my handmade seed catalogue under my bed for the weeks it took for the wood boxes to produce enough growth to move the plants to the garden and the flower beds. Every so often I would take it out, swelled as it was to three times its size, and leaf through it, anxious for the day I could take it out to the garden. Because when you could finally tell which plants would be carrots, and which would be cucumbers, and which flower bed would produce asters or cosmos, I would spend many a happy hour outside with my catalogue, matching my cut-out pictures to what was taking new life in the ground back in those depression years when we were expected to amuse ourselves without benefit. It was a simple way of spending many happy hours free of costly toys. Like making rag dolls, whittling, carving sling-shots, boiling weeds to make coloured water, and building sand castles on the banks of the Bonnechere River, the price was just right.

Fabricland is celebrating their 45th anniversary Fabricland: Where the Smart Money Goes to Sew Up the Savings By Brian Turner As Fabricland prepares to celebrate its 45th anniversary, their team looks back at a world of changes in clothing creation, home décor, and crafting, but what has remained constant since their first small store opened in Toronto in 1968 is the commitment to deliver exceptional product lines at the lowest price with superior customer service. Now among 170 locations from coast to coast, the Ottawa area outlets are stocking up to bring some fantastic birthday deals to those who know how to stretch their buying power to the max while having fun and showing their creative side at the same time. While other big fabric retailers and department stores have downsized or eliminated the options for their customers in terms of filling creative fashion needs or providing substantial savings on home decorating supplies, Fabricland remains dedicated to their growing family of smart shoppers. What Fabricland learned many years ago is nothing replaces customer service and advice from experienced consultants when it comes to welcoming first-time sewers and crafters as well as keeping fabric experts supplied with all their needs. That’s why every store is staffed with friendly knowledgeable folk who are happy to lend a hand, an ear and even a thimble to get the job done.

Fabricland continues to grow and evolve to not only meet their customers’ expectations but to exceed them. When home décor demands came from shoppers with little or no sewing experience, Fabricland premiered their ‘no-sew, ready-to-go’ home product line with ready-to-hang drapery panels, white bedding, an extensive line of drapery hardware, table linens such as placemats and runners, as well as a huge selection of decorative home accessories and much, much more... all of excellent quality and value. They called it the ‘Home Dec Centre’ and all of the Metro Ottawa stores have one. For those who like to craft their own decor, Fabricland has it all by the meter and bins of hardware. Quilters haven’t been left out in the cold either. Fabricland has the largest selection of materials, batting, backing, and threads for quilts to warm up the coldest winter night. For those looking to recycle some older clothing with spark, it’s all bling, buttons and beads at 50% off during the anniversary sale. When it comes to convenient locations, Fabricland has that sewn up as well. The Kanata store is at 471 Hazeldean Road (near Castlefrank), in Nepean it’s 1460 Merivale Road (between Clyde and Baseline), in Ottawa south at 1440 Walkley Road (near Albion North), in Ottawa East it’s in the Shopper’s City East Plaza at 2016 Ogilvie, and in Orleans you can find the savings at 2384 St. Joseph Blvd (just east of Orleans Blvd.). All locations have plenty of free parking and are open 7 days a week.

City to host women’s football

Hockey high

EMC sports - More than 100 of Canada’s best women’s Australian Rules Football players will be in the nation’s capital to fight for the national championship title in October. The Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club is excited to announce the club has won the bid to host the 2013 Women’s Canadian National Championships Oct. 11 to 13. Australian Rules Football, also known as the AFL or footy, is played widely in Australia through professional and recreational leagues. Internationally, especially on the women’s side, the sport has been rapidly growing. “To say the team is excited is an understatement,” said Swans captain Lisa Dalla Rosa. “Knowing that this October we will be playing on our field, with our club, sponsors and city cheering us on will be great motivation not only for the tournament but for the up-coming season as well. We cannot wait to host players from across Canada. This is fantastic for women’s footy in the capital.” The Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club was formed in 2006 by a group of Australian expatriots, and became a member of the Ontario AFL and AFL Canada in 2007. The club has adopted the same name as the professional AFL club the Sydney Swans – who won the 2012 Grand Final, the AFL’s Stanley Cup. Both women’s and men’s teams play in the Ontario AFL, playing at home at the Rideau Carleton Raceway and travelling to Toronto to face competition. The Swans debuted their women’s side in 2012. The team went on to finish second in the regular season league play, and have several members named to the national team, the Northern Lights. This will be an excellent chance for the best footy players in the country to play against one another, and duke it out to be the best women’s side in Canada. ‘The Ottawa Swans are extremely happy to be hosting the 2013 AFL Canada Women’s Nationals,” said club president Chris MacLean. “Hosting an event of this size, with teams represented from across Canada, is going to be fantastic for the development of the sport in the Ottawa region. Australian Rules Football has come a long way in the Ottawa region since our club’s inception in 2006 and we hope this event encourages more men and women to learn this amazing game.” Teams from Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Toronto and Hamilton will be traveling to Ottawa to compete in the national championship, sanctioned by AFL Canada. Visit www. arriving in this Metroland Media publication beginning January 12, 2012.* for updates.


The Kanata Predators ended the hockey season on a high note, winning the Kanata PeeWee House A Championship on April 10 in a thrilling 3-1 nail-biter. The Predators continued their winning streak a few days later, defeating the Nepean champions 4-1 to win the Kanata-Nepean Interlock Championship.

EMC entertainment - Mikaela Gallinger cringes when one of her actors mentions the play Macbeth. “Knock twice please,” she calls out to the offending party, as cast members hurry across the stage to prepare for the Trinity Pit Stop Theatre Company’s production of Grease, the musical in the cafetorium of Holy Trinity Catholic High School on April 19. The 18-year-old director has her hands

full, organizing and keeping track of the 34 actors and six technicians, grades 9 to 12 students. Some of them are members of the theatre company, others volunteers who wanted a chance to appear in the high school play. The play is based on the 1978 musical starring John Travolta and Olivia NewtonJohn that revolves around a love story between greaser Danny Zuko and Australian teen Sandy Olsson. The pair meet and fall in love at a beach during the summer.

When Sandy transfers to Danny’s high school, she discovers he is the leader of the T-Birds, a gang of greasers, and nothing like the boy she met on the beach.

The teens eventually resolve to become more like each other so they can be together. The theatre group has been rehearsing for the play since February, and was shown to the public April 18 to 20,

with a theatre reviewer for The Cappies, a program that recognizes the best in high school theatre from more than 30 schools in the Ottawa area. Stavros Sakiadis, who teaches the grades 10 to 12 theatre production course at Holy Trinity, served as supervisor/artistic director for the play. The theatre company puts on two plays every year, said

of backstage volunteers designing, building, painting, sewing and generally helping out. Together, they produce a level of professionalism rarely seen in a community theatre. A Flea in Her Ear is a period piece that takes place in the 1900s at the elegant home of M. Chandebise as well as in the Frisky Puss Hotel. The set is designed by both director Jim Holmes and Susan Phillips, owner of Spotlight on Decor as well as author, designer and home stager. Last month, Phillips spent eight hours in her studio with director Jim Holmes reviewing the demands of the set and dreaming up ways and means to create effects with angles, colours and possibilities. Phillips is no stranger to Kanata Theatre having designed and been involved in more than 40 sets over the last

17 years. Sadly, this will be her last design as she will be moving to Victoria this summer. Meanwhile, most mornings by 9 a.m., the building crew gathers with Phillips and Holmes to consider how to turn a miniature model set into reality. This particular reality includes 10 doors, a staircase and a smooth transition from one complex scene to another. Old set pieces are recycled into another era and transportation of large scene elements is engineered. Sets are illusory but must be able to endure the kind of frantic pace required by a typical farce. A Flea in Her Ear directed by Holmes, will be performed as part of Kanata Theatre’s 44th season at the Ron Maslin Playhouse, 1 Ron Maslin Way, just off Terry Fox Drive, Tuesdays to Saturdays May 14 to 25. Tickets are $20. Curtain call is at 8 p.m. sharp. For tickets call the box office at 613-831-4435 or email BoxOffice@kanatatheatre. com. For more information visit the website at

City to post hit list of negligent property owners

EMC news - If owners of derelict properties refuse to comply with the city’s orders to clean them up, they’ll be called out on the city’s website. Along with signs on the properties themselves, publishing a hit list of the city’s unmet orders to maintain crumbling vacant buildings on is one of the strategies the city will use to crack down on landowners who leave structures in disrepair. That new strategy was revealed to the city’s community and protective services committee during an April 18 meeting along with a rundown of current measures and future ideas to clean up rundown empty buildings. The report was a follow-up to a commitment Mayor Jim Watson and some of his council colleagues made at a press conference six weeks ago. After years of leniency, the crackdown means the city is enforcing its property standards bylaw more strictly. Two city bylaw officers have already been tackling a list of derelict properties – both vacant and in use – and issuing orders for maintenance. “Our goal now, as of this day, to look forward and say … .your building might be vacant, but from the street you won’t notice it,” said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who has the highest concentration of

derelict vacant buildings in his ward. That extends to occupied buildings such as rooming houses. The city has partnered with ACORN, a low-income and tenant advocacy organization, to proactively deal with negligent landlords. So far, the partnership has resulted in the discovery of 518 deficiencies in four buildings. The city issues a total of 73 orders for issues in those four buildings to be cleaned up. New strategies to crack down on derelict properties will be drafted through consultations starting in June and presented to the committee in September. Some of the ideas staff will look at include: • Limiting tax reductions property owners receive if buildings are vacant. • Setting higher maintenance standards to improve the appearance of buildings and prevent them from detracting. • Requiring property owners to buy a licence if they want to keep their property vacant. Watson said he had a question for property owners who refuse to comply with the city’s orders to repair their buildings: “Why don’t you take pride in your community and your property?” A hint of the answer came from a couple delegates who spoke to the committee on behalf of property owner interests.

Old Ottawa East community centre to get accessible Wheelchair ramp coming this summer Laura Mueller

EMC news - People with accessibility challenges will soon be able to attend community meetings and events at the Old Ottawa East community centre. The Old Town Hall building at 61 Main St. will be getting a ramp this summer, and it’s not a moment too soon, said Old Ottawa East Community Association president John Dance. He said a community member who requires a mobility device wanted to attend the association’s meeting, but it would have been very difficult to lift the person and their 136-kilogram electric scooter into the community centre, Dance said. Atelier 292 Architect had originally planned a ramp zig-zagged up to the front entrance on Main Street, but newer plans feature a ramp beside the building along Hawthorne Road, Dance said. The community association suggested the change for a few reasons: disembarking from a vehicle is easier on Hawthorne because it is a less-traf-

ficked side street and the ramp will be easier to get up without multiple turns, also known as “switchbacks,” Dance said. The Old Town Hall is designated as a heritage building and the ramp will be designed to blend into the historic style of the building as much as possible. It will be constructed of poured concrete clad in natural stone with a metal railing. The current steps are a newer addition to the building, but they are in poor condition and will be replaced, along with the door. The door frame will be extended and switched to open in the opposite direction and a push button will be installed. Initial estimates pegged the cost of constructing the ramp at around $60,000 to $70,000.


The city, led by Mayor Jim Watson and Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, is moving forward with a crackdown on owners of derelict vacant properties. John Dickie of the Eastern Ontario Landlord Organization said there are many circumstances, financial or otherwise, that could result in a property ending up in a poor state. Owners sometimes avoid spending money to maintain their buildings so they have enough resources left to invest in rebuilding or redeveloping it, Dickie said. “It’s a tradeoff. (A) tradeoff between waste of money and impact on

the neighbour,” he said. “It has impacts on neighbours, and we admit that.” Shirley Dolan, president of the Carleton Landowners Association, wondered why the city thought owners would be more willing to pour money into their properties now, when the economy is in a downturn, compared to previous decades when owners likely had more financial resources, but still didn’t maintain their buildings to the city’s standard.

Dolan said “beauty is in the eye of the beholders. “I really don’t think that bullying property owners into improvements because you don’t like the look of the property is the way to go,” she said. The city should be more lenient in letting owners tear down buildings they don’t want, Dickie said. “What’s wrong with a vacant lot? I grew up across from a vacant lot,” he said.

Liberal Party united after Trudeau win: West Carleton leadership candidate Derek Dunn


The Kanata-March Horticultural Society will present a talk about growing dahlias in gardens at the Old Town Hall on May 7.

Growing dahlias in your garden Depending upon the variety, they can either provide a bushier showing of smaller flowers or stand tall and proud to show off the “dinner plate” varieties that have flowers eight inches or more in diameter, and a wide array of colours to choose from. Dahlias are also great cut flowers for indoor arrangements, and are not considered to be enjoyable by deer. The horticultural society’s members are gardeners from novice to expert in experience, who share a common love of plants, gardening and take pride in their home’s landscaping. We feature guest speakers each month on a variety of topics, and help beautify the local community through the maintenance of the Molly Wilson Garden at the Old Town Hall. Our memberships follow the calendar year from January to December, and the cost is $15 per person or $25 per couple. New members are always welcome. Visit the society’s website at for more information.


EMC community - The Kanata-March Horticultural Society will present a talk about growing dahlias in gardens at the Old Town Hall, 821 March Rd. on May 7 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. The meeting is open to all members and there is a $5 fee for guests. Olly Churchryk of Charing House Gardens will deliver the presentation, discussing all aspects of growing dahlias - planting, growing, fertilizing, staking, pruning, cutting, digging, storing, and dividing tubers. After a long cold winter and an exasperating spring, we are approaching the season that all gardeners look forward to – the time in mid-to-late May when the last hard frost has passed and we can plant our tender flowers and seeds for our vegetable crops. It’s also the time to plant bulbs and corms that cannot overwinter in our climate – gladiolas, calla lilies, cannas and dahlias. Dahlias can provide a stunning impact in your garden.

EMC news - The pundits never predicted Ottawa’s last remaining candidate in the federal Liberal leadership race would surpass long-time frontrunner Justin Trudeau on voting day. But when the confetti was being swept the next afternoon, April 15, Karen McCrimmon wasn’t the least bit embittered by the coverage or the results. “I knew, I knew. But I was pleased (with the process). We managed get a lot accomplished,” she said. “The energy in the room last night was absolutely amazing.” Trudeau, riding a wave of support reminiscent of Trudeaumania created by his father Pierre Elliot leading up to the 1968 general election, easily took the race in the first round. He won with more than 80 per cent of the vote. Before about 1,000 cheering Liberals gathered at the Weston in Ottawa, Trudeau said the task of rebuilding the third-place Liberal party shouldn’t be underestimated. “Let us be clear-eyed about what we have accomplished. We have worked hard and we have had a great campaign. We are united, hopeful and resolute in our purpose,” he said. “But know this: we have won nothing more and nothing less than the opportunity to work even harder.” He served notice, though, that he intends to campaign as Liberal leader in the same way as he campaigned for the job, with optimism rather than negativity, and beyond the nasty, personal partisanship that prevails in Ottawa. West Carleton’s McCrimmon came to her leader’s defence after the Conservatives sprung an ad saying Trudeau doesn’t have enough experience to lead Canada. She noted that Harper has spent too much of his life wrapped up in party politics; that at least Trudeau has outside experience. McCrimmon often said during the campaign that she would only take the high road,


West Carleton’s Karen McCrimmon says she wasn’t surprised by the Liberal leadership election results and that she looks forward heading into the next federal election as a member of a united party. would not stoop to attacking opponents, but stick to her message. “I got along with everybody,” she said. “And I think my message resonated with a lot of people.” McCrimmon is one of just six candidates to complete the grueling campaign process, crisscrossing the nation for months on end, televised debate after televised debate: she is convinced she made important inroads with members and the public. “A lot of people told me I was their second choice,” she said. “It’s all been worth it. By far the best part of the campaign is getting out and meeting people across the country.” She doesn’t see the country divided between Conservatives in the west and progressives in the east, or along any number of other divisions. Without naming Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative party, she said there are people attempting to sow the seeds of division and stand to profit from a splintered electorate. “There are a lot of moderates looking for that middle ground approach,” she said. “They are looking for socially progres-

sive, fiscally responsible party. It’s not ‘government can’t do anything right’ or ‘government is the answer to everything.’ The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.” RUN IN 2015

McCrimmon, who lives in Constance Bay, ran and lost to Gordon O’Connor in the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding in the 2011 election. The riding encompasses two areas Conservative parties have long dominated in: rural and suburban. O’Connor won handily. However, McCrimmon, 54, is not one to back away from a challenge. She became the first woman ever to command a Royal Canadian Air Force squadron. She was the commanding officer of the 429 Squadron, flying tactical transport C130 Hercules based in Trenton. She and her squadron carried many military and humanitarian missions all around the world during her 31 years in the air force. She was also a senior staff officer at the NATO headquarters in Ramstein, Germany. In 1995 McCrimmon was awarded the Order of Mili-

tary Merit, which is one of the highest peace keeping military awards handed out. So, will she run again in the 2015 election? “Absolutely. For sure,” McCrimmon said. “This is where I live. These are the people I want to represent. You know, we are incredibly lucky to live in an area with small, tight-knit communities. I wish all of Canada had what we have.” Although the Conservatives are criticized for not preventing MPs from speaking on behalf of their constituents, and failing to bring about the open and transparent government they once promised, McCrimmon wouldn’t go after party whip O’Connor for silencing dissent. “It goes all the way up to the PMO (prime minister’s office),” is the most she would say about her likely competitor. “The whip does what he’s told.” She then quoted political philosopher Machiavilli: As the prince is, so will his people be. BALLOT RESULTS

The voter turnout of 82.16 per cent meant that 104,552 Liberal members and supporters cast a ballot in the leadership race. All 308 ridings in the country were given equal weight in the final tally, according to the party’s voting system. Each riding started with 100 points, and a candidate got the number of points equal to the percentage of votes they won in that riding. There were 30,800 points in total, with 15,401 needed to win. The final results: • 815 points for longtime MP Martin Cauchon; • 214 points for Toronto lawyer Deborah Coyne; • 1,760 points for former MP Martha Hall Findlay; • 210 points for retired military commander and West Carleton resident Karen McCrimmon; • 3,130 points for B.C. MP Joyce Murray; • 24,668 points for Quebec MP Justin Trudeau, who won in the first round of the preferential ballot.

Kids with Asperger’s and autism speak out Letter addresses issues of bullying, autism awareness Michelle Nash

EMC news – A group of boys diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome or autism have written a letter to the public asking people to be open minded and to try and understand what it is like to have a disability. “I am a 12-year-old boy who has to deal with social challenges every single day that most people do not have to worry about,” Twelve-yearold Nick Fejes wrote.

“I often will get into fights but not really understand what started it in the first place and I also have a hard time perceiving other people’s side of the story. It is hard for me to process my emotions. I wish that most people in the general public, the average Canadian citizen, would view kids on the spectrum as actual people, rather than “something strange.” Nick is but one voice of the many, all saying the same thing, simply, they want to be heard and to be treated as normal. The group of boys attend a private school in the city’s west end called Mindware, which offers children with learning disabilities, a different approach to learning. The school runs a daytime and after-school social group which helps boys like Nick work on social inter-

actions and feelings. It was during this group time that teacher Susan Mancini worked with the boys on expressing their feelings on paper. “Usually when they first come to the school they are withdrawn, mistrusting and scared,” Mancini said. “I noticed the kids needed to vent. To get their words out. At first I would transcribe what they were saying, after that, the boys began to write their own words down.” The group shared their thoughts with each other and then, tentatively, with the rest of the school. “They were nervous to share, but once they saw how well other students in the school responded, the group decided to stretch their reach a little farther. They thought what if we could get it out to the general public?” she said.

The goal is to let the public know how people with a disability feels on a daily basis; what it feels like when they are teased, or mistreated. “We want the world to understand,” Callum Nightingale said. Some of the feelings in the letter are raw and incredibly open. Twelve-year-old Nikita Sautchenko, an avid gamer with Asperger’s syndrome, said he feels just an average kid, but students in his former public school treated him poorly on a daily basis. “It got to the point where I was turning into a bully just to keep them away from me,” he said. Creating a hard shell on the surface, Nikita admits he was battling depression and thoughts of suicide when he came home. “I wish that the general public or

people who are “normal” would view people on the spectrum as regular people and not weirdos or outcasts,” Nikita wrote. Now the social group would like to share their message with as many people who care to listen. For them, the group describes this crusade as not only about teaching the world about treating them better, it’s about stopping bullying from happening to other children like them. The purpose of the letter is to foster change. Callum said spreading the word today is important, because he won’t always have his school to make him feel safe. The next step for the group will be to spread their message to different school boards and groups who are willing to listen.



I am a 13-year-old kid who is diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum and I struggle everyday because there are lots of parts of my day where I feel stressed or mad. I try to start fresh with a new day but every day for some reason I feel hurt and cry often. A lot of people make fun of me because I am sensitive but deep down I am just a normal person. Many people have thought I am weird in the past or say that I am not smart but I just ask to be treated like a normal person. - Callum Nightingale I am a 10-year-old boy who has to deal with Asperger’s. Most days I have to hold off my emotions. When I can’t hold off, I start too cry and shut down. All that I wish is that all people would treat me like a normal person. Not many people support me and sometimes I feel all alone in this world. When I am lucky, I get some support. - Josh Wells I am a 12-year-old boy who has to deal with social challenges every single day that most people do not have to worry about. I often will get into fights but not really understand what started it in the first place and I also have a hard time perceiving other people’s side of the story. It is hard for me to process my emotions. I wish that most people in the general public, the average Canadian citizen, would view kids on the spectrum as actual people, rather than “something strange.” -Nick Fejes

Work to get underway on O-Train service expansion Bus route to replace O-Train service during summer shutdown Steph Willems

EMC news – Taking advantage of lower ridership rates between school years, work begins on the O-Train service expansion project on April 27. Between that date and Sept. 2, the transit line will be shut down to make way for track, bridge and tunnel maintenance, station upgrades, and the construction of passing tracks in two locations - one of them near Gladstone Avenue, the other by Brookfield Road. The $59-million project was approved by city council in 2011. During the shutdown, service to each of the five OTrain stations will be offered by Route 107. That route will follow the southeast Transitway from South Keys Station to Heron, then connects to Bronson Avenue via Data Centre Avenue. The route then performs a loop of Campus/University

avenues at Carleton University before leaving Bronson to connect to Preston Street via Carling Avenue. It then continues down Preston Street to Albert Street to reach the Lebreton Transitway Station. Construction of passing tracks will allow for double the number of trains to run – four instead of two – with service going from every 15 minutes to every eight minutes after the new infrastructure has been tested. The city will receive delivery of six new diesel Alstom Coradia Lint trains this fall to replace the three Bombardier trains that have been in service since the line opened in 2001. The city has notified Carleton University that there will be some traffic congestion in the area of the River Building once work commences. As of press time, OC Transpo has not responded to requests for information on the possibility of disruptions in the areas where passing tracks are being constructed.


The O-Train will be out of service from April 27 to September 2 while the transit line undergoes repair and expansion. A special bus route will be added by OC Transpo to serve the O-Train stations during that period. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, whose eastern ward boundary is the O-Train line, said her office has had “no notification (that) it would

be required.” Upgrades to increase the O-Train’s capacity are being carried out this year in advance of the planned shut-

down of Hurdman Station in 2015. When that major transit hub is closed during the construction of the Confederation

LRT line, the O-Train should be able to handle the increased number of riders expected to use the service as an interim measure.

Humane societies put their stamp on Canadian History Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The country will honour its four-legged friends in the form of a commemorative Adopt a Pet commemorative stamp. The stamp, which features actual pets that were up for adoption at the Toronto Humane Society, was unveiled at the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) facility on West Hunt

Club Road on April 22. Linda Barber, chair of the OHS board of directors, said the stamps will bring the message of animal welfare to residents across the country. “It’s fitting that this is happening in the Ottawa Humane Society’s 125th anniversary year,” Barber said. The Ottawa Humane Society takes in 11,000 abandoned and neglected animals per year. Barbara Cartwright, CEO

of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, said a report in 2011 showed that 600,000 cats and 400,000 dogs were up for adoption across the country that year. Minister of Transport, Steven Fletcher, said Canadian stamps are a great way to celebrate Canadian history and culture. “We live in the best country in the world, at a probably the best time to be a human. We

should do what we can to make sure it’s the best time for animals too,” Fletcher said. The stamps, which will feature the likeness of seven different animals, are bordered with what appear to be the walls of a cage. Fletcher said when the stamp is removed, Canadians will be symbolically removing

models. Laureen Harper, who volunteers with the OHS, said she was happy to see animals like parrots shown on the stamps, because it will remind people that it’s not just dogs and cats in need of our help. “Each type of animal has their own rescue society,” she said.

the animals from the cages. “We wanted to show real animals currently in the shelter system,” Deepak Chopra, CEO of Canada Post said. “Buddy” a 32-year-old parrot and Mr. Wrinkles a mixedbreed dog, are two of the characters to be showcased on the new stamps. Both have been adopted after being selected as

OC Transpo launches spring schedule Steph Willems

EMC news – As warmer weather finally arrives in Ottawa, OC Transpo is unrolling a list of service improvements as part of its new spring schedule. Beginning on April 21, changes will be made to route schedules and the Rack & Roll bike program will return as a convenience for riders. Starting April 27 and lasting until Sept. 2, the O-Train will be shut down to accommodate the construction of passing tracks in two locations. A temporary Route 107 will access the stations served by the train. Service will return in the fall with six new trains replacing the former three, and service at eightminute intervals instead of the previous 15. The changes to bus routes are numerous. • Route 16 will bring new service to St. Paul University and Ottawa East, as it will travel down Main Street instead of via Hawthorne Avenue and Lees Avenue. • Route 16 will also provide ser-

vice to the Ottawa Hospital General Campus, replacing Route 5X. • Seasonal frequency reductions will be made to Routes 4, 111, and 129 to coincide with the ending of the school year at Carleton University and la CitÊ collÊgiale. • Routes 153 and 157, which were the subject of much concern during OC Transpo’s 2011 route optimization project, will see their schedules readjusted to improve convenience for riders. • In Barrhaven, Route 173 will no longer serve Cedarview Middle School, though resources will be reallocated to school services, including 600-numbered routes, to add or cancel trips as required. • In Kanata, commuters will see increased service with the extension of peak period trips on Route 93 and a new morning trip on Route96A from the Scotiabank park and ride. University students who take the bus to campus should be aware that their U-Pass expires on April 30. The pass, which can’t be used as fare after that date, can still be used as a valid photo ID card from May


OC Transpo annouced its new spring schedule, with route changes including Kanata, Carleton University, Old Ottawa East and Barrhaven. to August if paired with a regular monthly bus pass. Full-time students 19 years of age and younger can purchase a dis-

counted student pass using their OC Transpo student photo ID. More information on route and schedule changes can be found on-

line at, or by calling 613-560-1000 or texting 560560 plus the stop number you would like to inquire about.

springs into season

EMC news - Spring is here, and the Canada Agriculture Museum has a list of events planned to draw people out of winter hibernation and into the rustic environment of the Central Experimental Farm. The farm’s long-awaited learning centre – a converted heritage building - is scheduled to open on May 4 with a day of activities to entertain the whole family. The inaugural exhibition is titled A Piece of Cake, which teaches participants what agricultural processes go into making the ingredients of a simple apple cake. The production of flour, eggs, maple syrup, apples, milk and butter is more difficult than most consumers would think, and the exhibit serves to make people appreciate the complexity and fragility of Canada’s food chain. Activities aimed at kids, demonstrations and a cooking show are among the things people can enjoy at the exhibit. Participants can also see

live chicks hatching and visit farm animals in the facility’s stables. During the weekend of May 18 to 20, fur will fly during the museum’s annual Sheep Shearing Festival. Visitors can watch the farm’s sheep shed their winter coats at the hands of skilled shearers. Demonstrations will teach the practices of training border collies (who herd sheep), spinning and weaving, felt-making and more. Later, on June 19, the Canada Agricultural Museum Foundation will hold its seventh annual Baskets with Panache! fundraising event. As in past years, donations and proceeds will go towards allowing children with financial or physical challenges to take part in fun museum activities. The fundraiser takes place in a heritage barn and will feature a traditional country fair motif. Located at 901 Prince of Wales Dr, the museum’s events list and related information can be viewed at www.

A fine finish A large group of Ottawa runners congregated in Festival Plaza in front of city hall on a bright Sunday morning, both as a show of solidarity to the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy and a statement reaffirming their commitment to the sport. Ottawa Run Club coach Geordie McConnell organized the Take Back the Finish Line event, which took place on a day traditionally known for running, as a way of re-establishing the spiritual significance of the finish line which was marred by last week’s bombings. Runners made a symbolic loop of city hall and the neighbouring drill hall, high-fiving each other upon completion.

Randy Wilson April 23, 2012

Today recalls the memory Of loved ones gone to rest, And those who think of them today, Are those who loved them best. The flowers we lay upon their grave May wither and decay. But the love for them who lies beneath Will never fade away.

Special thanks to Dr. Earl Gordon and the hospital staff at the Arnprior and District Hospital. All of you made a positive difference at a difďŹ cult time.

Loved and always remembered, Randy, Daphne, Brodie and Nicole

You are all in our hearts. Helen, Lisa, Steven, Chris, Patricia, Cole and Grace One year since that sad day, The one we loved was called away, God took him home, it was his will, But in our hearts he liveth still.

Museum evacuation


Staff and patrons of the Canadian War Museum were evacuated from the facility for several hours on the afternoon of April 19 following the discovery of a note that mentioned a bomb. Nerves were on edge last week due to the Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent manhunt, and the museum was swept by police until the all-clear was given.

Sheila Brown works with computers in consultation, training, trouble shooting and design. She takes questions from a group of high school girls during a women’s networking dinner hosted by Skills Canada at Algonquin College on April 9.

Girl power hits college Skills Canada taps into career choices for young women

EMC news - Kaitlyn ReidLegge, a student at Rideau High School, is thinking about her future. That’s why the Grade 11 student headed to Algonquin College on April 9 to network with women in different careers. “I have done dual credit programs and a schism (career focused) program,” ReidLegge said, adding she has also participated in provincial youth-intern programs. “I am seriously looking at where I will end up,” she said. Of all the careers she got a chance to learn about at the Skills Canada-led event, Reid-Legge said she was most interested in welding.

Shannon Kuhn, a student at Notre Dame High School said she was interested in learning more about working in the trades. There were students from across the city attending the third annual event – aimed at encouraging female high school students to look at non-traditional career paths. The girls heard from Kayla O’Brien, a graduate of Algonquin College and a sheet metal worker. She took questions about her salary and brought some samples of her work. Other speakers included a filmmaker, a fire prevention officer, a business technology student and an IT worker. “It was really neat that it was girl focused,” Kuhn said. “Boys can tend to take over at these types of events, so

it was nice to be able to ask questions and learn without the distraction.” Julia Mazzarello, another student from Notre Dame High School, was interested in the talk by Lois Seigel, who workers as a photographer, filmmaker, musician and writer. Mazzarello attended the dinner because she wants to attend Algonquin’s social work program. “It would have been great if there had been a social worker here,” she said. The networking dinners were launched across Canada in 2000 in response to a minimal number of women entering careers in the skilled trades. The April 9 event at Algonquin boasted 53 attendees from 15 different schools.

Aries, don’t be pushy with authority figures because such an attitude is not in your best interest. You are better off putting on the charm and getting them to see your softer side. Taurus, avoid getting involved in a family spat unless someone seeks your advice. Let your relatives work things out on their own and only offer your thoughts when prompted. Gemini, you might run into a snag with your spouse or partner over shared finances. Rather than settle issues this week, you’re better off waiting a few days. Cancer, even if the people around you are feeling tense and touchy, you have an innate way of making them feel at ease. Humor and compassion are two great traits. Leo, you might need to make travel plans for a work trip in the coming month. Embrace the opportunity to benefit your career, but don’t forget to have a little fun when you’re away. Virgo, now is not the time to talk about shared expenses or the division of labor in a relationship. You’ll only be starting an argument, and you do not need that right now, Virgo.

Staying neutral is the best way to go this week, Libra. Avoid any knee-jerk reactions and practice your poker face. There are some opportunities for fun on Thursday. Scorpio, demonstrate grace under pressure at work this week, even if you feel tempted to lash out at others. Take the high road and you will be rewarded. Sagittarius, the perfect opportunity for a night out with friends presents itself this week. This could be the ideal way to unwind, so enjoy your night out with friends. Capricorn, although it seems like everyone is tense, you feel free as a bird. That could be because you have worked hard to free up time to get away. Aquarius, conversations with others may not flow smoothly, and you may have to come up with a way to reword what you’re trying to get across. Stick with it. Pisces, though you’re praised for your marvelous imagination and sense of whimsy, you also know when to get down to business.
