EMC news – The Ottawa Public Library’s CEO will investigate after library board members raised questions about the process that has led to an anticipated $25,000 cost overrun for renovations at the Hazeldean branch. The Kanata library branch is being updated and retrofitted to accommodate the city’s first experiment with a high-tech radio frequency identification (RFID) system to more efficiently track books and other materials. But some work, including boxing around washroom pipes, electrical rewiring and making the doors accessible were not included in the work order to the contractor, and now the expected $339,471 cost (including a 20 per cent contingency fund for unexpected costs) has ballooned to $364,471. Other items included in the cost overruns are new tempered glass doors, $16,569 for ceiling drywall replacement in certain locations, security gate and mirrors, hot water tank relocation, air diffusers, structural bracing above mechanical room duct and mould remediation.

Vincent Gabriel Kirouac took a break from his quest to promote chivalry among Canadians with a visit to the Kanata Montessori School in Glen Cairn on Thursday, May 10.

A chivalrous quest Man on cross country journey visits Glen Cairn school Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Quebec man dressed as a knight attracted a lot of attention on the TransCanada Trail between Bells Corners and Bridlewood on Friday, May 11. Several people rushed up to the St-

Pacome, Que. resident as his horse trotted along the recreational pathway, usually home only to pedestrians, cyclists and runners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want a picture!â&#x20AC;? shouted several passerbys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my God! Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a horse on the TransCanada Trail, and, oh my God, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a knight on his back!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Vincent Gabriel Kirouac, who started his cross-country journey on horseback in April. The 23-year-old man said he was a little worried heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d miss an appointment to meet the children at the Kanata Montessori School in Glen Cairn that afternoon.

The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal had arranged overnight lodgings for him at Sunset Farms in Stittsville later that day, and had asked Kirouac if he could drop by to meet the students at the private school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh my God, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be late!â&#x20AC;? said Kirouac, who had spent the previous night at the Nepean Equestrian Park on May 10. When Kirouac trotted up to the school he was besieged by dozens of students waiting for him at the back of the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great gift to me to see all your smiles,â&#x20AC;? he told them.

The City of Ottawa’s new CEO, Danielle McDonald, says she will look into why the renvovation of the Hazeldean branch of the Ottawa public library is $25,000 over budget.

Hazeldean branch renovation goes $25 K over budget LIBRARY, from 1

Library board member Keith Egli, councillor for Knoxdale-Merivale Ward, and board chair Jan Harder, councillor for Barrhaven Ward, questioned why those expenses were left out of the original contract. “It seems that those are all things you would factor into any construction job,” Egli said. “I’m not sure why they weren’t contemplated … That’s what concerns me. Some of those things should have been in there in the contract.” Paul Hussar, program manager for design and construc-

tion architecture, didn’t have any answers for the board. “I’m not sure whey it was elected not to put it in,” Hussar said, noting that the items weren’t forgotten, but deliberately left out in the original tender. Richard Stark, the program manager of facilities planning and development, said that planners didn’t have access to drawings of the internal duct and electrical work for the building when they were putting the contract together. The library’s new CEO, Danielle McDonald, whose previous role saw her overseeing the library’s capital projects, said she would investi-

gate the matter. MaDonald said she didn’t find the board members’ concerns troubling, but added that they asked valid questions. “I had those questions myself,” McDonald said. “There have been other issues in that branch that could not have been foreseen,” including moisture issues, she added. “If we haven’t been doing as well as we can, hopefully on the next one we’ll do better and not make that mistake again.” Egli asked McDonald to take steps to ensure similar issues don’t happen again with other library construction projects.

Knight on cross-Canada quest to promote chivalry and honour KNIGHT, from 1

Kirouac told the children he was on a cross-Canada quest to promote chivalry and honour. “The reason is to sensitize people to chivalry, honour, virtue,” he said. “It’s still impor-

tant today to help people.” Kirouac, who was recently enrolled in equine studies at La Pocatiere community college, in La Pocatiere, Que., said he came up with the idea of his quest after watching the Lord of the Rings movies. The characters in the film

face overwhelming odds, but they hold true to their morals and each other, he said. “They know if they don’t (come) together it will be the end of it,” he said. “I thought maybe I could make it happen (in Canada).” Kirouac designed and made

a helmet and ordered his outfit on the Internet – but decided not to carry a sword on his journey. “The police don’t like swords,” he told the children with a laugh. Kirouac said he expects his journey across Canada, which will end in British Columbia, will take half a year. Kirouac never knows where he will find food or shelter, depending on the kindness of strangers he meets on his long trek. He started his journey with

a tent and sleeping bags, but they were too heavy for the horse, Coeur de Lion (Lionheart) to carry, said Kirouac. “Now I need people,” he said. “I really need them.” Sam Whaler, 10, said he enjoyed meeting the knight. “It was awesome,” he said. “It was fun to see a knight for a change.” Julia MacAngus, 12, said it was a treat meeting both Kirouac and his horse. “I think he’s really cool – that he’s travelling all over on a horse,” she said. “I ride

horses myself. “I thought he seemed very noble for coming here. He’s coming such a long way on his horse.” Jonathan Robison, the principal of Kanata Montessori, said he hoped Kirouac’s message resonates with his students. “He was talking about the importance of integrity, honesty and honour and how we think those values are lost,” said Robison. “At our school we don’t think these values are lost and neither does Vincent.”

Inside Ride cyclists raise $54,000 for fight against cancer Adam Feibel

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Team Six-Pack â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also raised the most out of all teams, with $6,836. Pervoi has worked as an administrative assistant at Alcatel-Lucent for 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have very good relationships with people. I welcome people every time they come here. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing opportunity for me to be in this role and to be able to help kids,â&#x20AC;? she said. Pervoiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband was diagnosed with cancer many years ago. She remembers how traumatic the experience was for her family, and knows that as soon as patients get out of the hospital or even ďŹ nd themselves in remission, they just want to get back to normal life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because what is inside of the hospital walls, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like a different world,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When kids are sick, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a traumatic experience. But I want to give them that chance to get out of it and to get back to normal.â&#x20AC;? Each cycling team had its own unique name and identity, with many of the groups dressing in costume. The Cyclists, Eh? team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dressed up like it was July 1 on Parliament Hill already, and acting the part, too â&#x20AC;&#x201C; took home medals for most team spirit, while the Pirates of the CUREabbean team won an award for their costumes.

Participants in telecommunications company AlcatelLucentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ fth annual Inside Ride event on May 10 raised more than $54,000 to help children and their families affected by cancer. The Inside Ride is an organized stationary cycling challenge in which team members take turns riding a bike mounted in place, in this case in the cafeteria of the Alcatel-Lucent building on March Road. Money raised goes toward the funding of oncology camps, community support programs, research scholarships and other areas that help give hope and improve prognoses for children and their families impacted by cancer. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company total breaks its goal of $40,000 and brings the running total of the last ďŹ ve years to $156,000. Tracey Cleroux, one of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Inside Ride organizers, said that next year theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably up the fundraising goal to $60,000 based on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just got bigger and better,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and that was our point â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is great. I think it will always be at least this big, if not bigger now.â&#x20AC;? Galina Pervoi was specially recognized for her contributions, having raised $2,600 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the most out of all participants. Her cycling team

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great team-building exercise, a great spirit exercise... people just love it,â&#x20AC;? said Jacquelyn Halpenny, one of Alcatel-Lucentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizers of the event. Cancer struck close to home for her when her own sister was diagnosed at 25.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this event is very dear to my heart,â&#x20AC;? she said. One of Alcatel-Lucentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own was affected by cancer recently. Last year, Harry Cheng addressed participants as one of the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motivation speakers after his son was diagnosed with leukemia.

The piriformis is a small muscle located in your buttock that runs from the bottom of the spine to the top of your hip that helps to rotate your leg outwards. Although it is only approximately 3-5cm in size, this seemingly minor muscle can cause you major discomfort if it becomes tight. The piriformis muscle usually

tenses up from overuse, however, other causes may include: direct trauma (i.e. a fall), muscle imbalance, muscle spasm, abnormal walking patterns, and improper sitting posture. If you are experiencing a burning or tingling sensation down the back of your leg, it may be caused by compression one of the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s larger nerves, known as the sciatic nerve, which may run above, below or right through the piriformis itself. Self-treatment of Piriformis Syndrome includes avoiding sitting for long periods of time, irritating activities, and stretching. A visit to your local family physiotherapist can

help speed up the process of loosening up the piriformis by providing you with a combination of 1) Manual soft tissue releases of tight musculature 2) Therapeutic modalities for pain and inďŹ&#x201A;ammation 3) Appropriate stretching and strengthening programs to manage and prevent reoccurrence of this condition. Once that tiny muscle is able to relax, you will be able to, too!

Sexting – what you need to know as a parent A girl lies naked on a bed, cameras flashing. She isn’t a part of the pornography industry – she is just a teenager. No one is forcing her to take these images. She is taking them on her own accord – with her smartphone. This is but one example Const. Amy Haggerty gave parents at a free Technology & Teens seminar held at Earl of March Secondary School on May 8. The seminar focused on how parents should educate their teens about sexting, cyberbullying and other technology-related issues teens often face. “Sexting is a shorter way of saying ‘sex’ and ‘texting,’”

Haggerty said. “These are explicit messages that are either written or images sent,” she said. WHO IS SEXTING?

Haggerty said there are three key groups who send sex texts: boyfriends and girlfriends, those who send the messages to those they want to “hook up with,” and those who send the messages to people they’ve only ever met online. “It all seems fine and good until the relationship dissolves and the pictures find their way around,” Haggerty said. “It’s not restricting to texting and picture messages,” Haggerty said. “There are also video conversations, Face

Time, Skype, webcam, chat rooms and instant messages.” There are several reasons teens send sex text messages, Haggerty said. A few mentioned in the seminar include: thinking it is a fun and flirtatious activity, a sexy present for a significant other, a response to a sexually suggestive message, to get noticed by the opposite sex and because of feeling a pressure to do so. “In a study it was shown that 75 per cent of teens say sending sexually explicit content can have serious negative consequences – and they know it!” Haggerty said. The key issue behind sexting, Haggerty explained, was when these teens do not fully

understand the consequences these messages might have. “From a legal standpoint, these teens need to know there are charges that can be laid.” Charges can be anything from producing pornography,

distributing pornography, possessing pornography to voyeurism and other similar charges. “Having, looking at and showing someone these images can be seen as possession,

“Asking someone to perform a sexual SEXTING, act oversee the6 computer is considered lur-

SERVING KANATA NORTH

City Councillor, Kanata North

Kanata Food Cupboard fundraiser Kanata Food Cupboard chairman Marc Dumais, left, joined client co-ordinator Karen Waters, Kanata Coun. Marianne Wilkinson and a number of volunteers for a fundraising barbecue outside the Sobey’s grocery store on March Road on Saturday, May 12. The barbecue raised money and food donations for the food cupboard, which serves about 200 families each month within the old city of Kanata boundaries. Waters said the food cupboard is especially looking for cold cereal and kids’ snack items, and soon will begin collecting back to school items.

MURALS Earlier this year, I attended a presentation on the Paint It Up grant program that is administered through Crime Prevention Ottawa. Several residents responded to my request to look into this program, resulting in a successful application through the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre (WOCRC). Many thanks to the volunteers who made this happen, particularly Sylvia Thibodeau who put the proposal together, and Julia Valley from WOCRC.

Racy photos can have legal consequences From SEXTING, page 5

The project involves designing and painting two murals, which will highlight both entrances of the underpass under March Road (leading to the NCC path through the Greenbelt). Nicole Bélanger is the artist who will work with local youths to design the murals and supervise the painting. The community is invited to help by submitting ideas and attending a public meeting on June 7th at 6:30 pm (Mlacak Hall D) to finalize the design. The final design will then be submitted to the City for approval.

“Asking someone to perform a sexual act over the computer is considered luring, and taking a picture or video – screencaps for example – is voyeurism.” Haggerty said the Ottawa Police Service is now going to high schools across the English and French school boards, both Catholic and public, to inform teens about the impacts these decisions may yield. “It is important, however, that parents make certain steps themselves,” said Haggerty. Haggerty suggested parents initiate conversations with their teens, ensuring they are aware of the legal and the emotional consequences sexting and cyberbullying have.

Young people up to age 25 may apply to be mural artists for this project. They will be paid for their work. Apply through Julia Valley at WOCRC by calling 613 591-3686 or email valley@wocrc.ca WASTE OR GIVE AWAY? We all create waste and have items that we no longer need in our homes. The City provides many opportunities for these to be put to use to create compost, to recycle or to give away. Everyone is now used to putting out their blue and black boxes and I’m pleased that a growing number of residents are using their green bins. At our house we have a small garbage bag only every 3-4 weeks, as most waste is recycled or reused.

“I’m not saying it’s an easy conversation to have, but if you are not ready to speak with your teen about these things, maybe they aren’t ready to have a cellphone.” Other suggestions include: • Telling your teen to think before they post. • Have your teen turn off the GPS on their phone – Geotagging in photos can allow internet predators to find their exact location. • Teens should tell someone, preferably an adult, if they obtain an unsolicited sex text. • Delete the message immediately upon receiving it. • Never send anymore sexually explicit messages, even if threatened. • Teens should tell an adult if you think someone might be

in trouble or needs help. • Haggerty also suggested that concerned parents set a “phone curfew” and take the phone at that time. “Parents also need to know of viruses that can remotely control webcams,” Haggerty said. “Have your teen close their lap top or turn the webcam to the wall. “Teens need to know about these consequences. Sometimes the emotional level outweighs the legal ones,” said Haggerty. Haggerty showed various videos to the audience. One in particular caused a large reaction in the crowd. “This is the story of a girl in the States. She sent a picture of herself to her boyfriend,

who passed it along to his hockey team after their break up. It spread across several high schools,” Haggerty said. “She took an interview - her voice and appearance disguised - telling her story in hopes that others could learn from her mistake.” The girl was constantly teased, harassed and verbally abused by her peers, until one day it was too much. She took her own life. Haggerty said: “Teens think in the ‘now,’ they aren’t thinking about the photos getting out. They aren’t thinking of peers, university admissions boards or future employers seeing them. They need to know this can happen. Parents need to make sure they are aware this can happen.”

Give Away weekend is June 2-3. This program was started in Kanata before amalgamation and has spread throughout Ottawa. Simply place any items that you no longer need at the end of your driveway. Place a ‘Free’ sign, and others can make use of them. Many residents do this after holding a garage sale – which is another way to re-use items. SUMMER WEEKENDS Summer is a time when it is great to be outdoors, to visit with neighbours and spend time at your cottage. Please remember to watch out for children playing outside or on their bicycles. Slow down when driving through the community – it’s only a few extra seconds of your time but it enhances safety for many. Plan to enjoy summer in Kanata through activities such as the Briarbrook/ Morgan’s Grant Fun Day & the St. John’s Lawn supper on June 16th, Canada Day in Kanata in Walter Baker Park on July 1st and my annual community picnic on July 18th.

The new School’s Cool program is meant to promote successful entry into kindergarten by combining active learning with structured routines and daily activities to form a solid foundation for continuing learning for both child and parents.

Pre-school prep program offered at resource centre Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre

September 2012 is fast approaching and many families will be sending their preschooler off to school for the first time. What are you doing to help your child prepare for school? School’s Cool has been designed to help children and their parents get ready for school. If your child is registered to start school for the first time this coming September, is between three to five years old, has not attended nursery school and is able to understand and speak some English, then this is the program for you. School’s Cool has been designed to promote successful entry into kindergarten combining a balance of active learning with structured routines, daily activities that increase skills in key developmental areas and forming a solid foundation for continuing learning for both child and parents. The children attend on their own without their parent; parent involvement will include two information nights. School’s Cool will introduce you to the school system and support your role as parents of a school-aged child. Research shows that a positive experience in the early school years results in more success throughout a person’s life.

The Ontario Early Years Centre Carleton, a program of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, will offer School’s Cool through July and August 2012 thanks to funding received by the United Way. The six-week program will run Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon at a location to

be determined in Kanata. Application forms can be picked up at the Centre at 2 MacNeil Crt. or found online at www. wocrc.ca. Space is limited. Applications for the program will be accepted from May 15 to 29. For more information, contact the Ontario Early Years Centre-Carleton, at 613591-3686.

Infrastructure renewal program needs to slow down

C

racks are starting to show in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitious Ottawa on the Move infrastructure investment plan. Three major road reconstruction projects announced in the City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 budget, will be pushed back a year, with work starting in 2013. The delay is needed to prevent a log-jam of construction that would clog the streets and potentially create traffic havoc.

One of the projects, the reconstruction of Main Street, would seriously limit access across the Rideau River â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so the road must stay open to allow for detours until 2013. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to slow down and plan properly to give the city time â&#x20AC;&#x153;to get it right.â&#x20AC;? We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree more. In 2012, the City of Ottawa introduced a $340-million Ottawa on the Move program, an ambitious plan to reconstruct hundreds of pieces of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

roads, water pipes, bridges and other infrastructure projects over the course of two years. This summer, the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 61 infrastructure project managers will handle 340 projects around the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a heavy workload. The reason for the push makes sense. Ottawa on the Move was created to catch up on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure work and prepare the municipality for its sesquicentennial anniversary or 150th birthday in 2017. The city will take advantage

of historic lows in interest rates to borrow $125 million to help debt finance these projects. Makes sense. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question about the need for investing in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crumbling infrastructure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public infrastructure assets are valued at $14 billion and those assets depreciate at a rate of more than $200 million per year. On average, Ottawa spends about 35 per cent of what it should be spending on infrastructure renewal. The city should be invest-

ing $110 million every year on roads renewal alone. Instead, Ottawa spent $42.7 million last year. But that dropped to $23.9 million this year and $27.2 million in 2013. But 2014, it will soar back up to $56.7 million. The problem with the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa on the Move infrastructure push is two-fold: planning and timing. Trying to accomplish too much too quickly with just 61 planning project managers leaves the municipality open to making planning errors.

The delays of the three road projects are examples of some of the problems these overworked planning managers are facing. The city needs to slow down and get it right the first time. It will have a chance to do that when it begins work on the new Infrastructure Master Plan this year, which will be aligned with reviews of several other major city plans for land and transportation. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan ahead and get it right instead of playing catch up.

The cruel facts of urban living CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

his seems to happen all the time these days. You drive to a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office or a dentistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office or a lawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. The office is in a big glass building away from downtown with all sorts of room around it. Or itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a strip mall. Either way thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of room around it for parking, which is the good thing about not being downtown. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you say to yourself as you notice the welcome sign â&#x20AC;&#x153;Visitor Parkingâ&#x20AC;? and ease the car into a spot. Only then do you spot the machine over at the side and realize that you are going to have to pay to park, pay here, in this spacious and uncongested area. Why do they make you do that? Because they can. Because that little patch of asphalt youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on can earn thousands of dollars. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stuck. You have to see the doctor or the dentist or the lawyer and the parking gods know that. It serves no social purpose to make you pay for parking. It is cruel and unfair and it is a fact of life in the city in the new millennium. The sad thing about it is you feel a bit guilty even complaining. Making parking scarce and expensive has long been a strategy aimed at getting you out of your car and onto the bus, thus reducing traffic congestion and air pollution. Therefore when you complain you are revealing yourself as one of those thoughtless individuals who will ruin the planet just so they can listen to the car radio for a few minutes. But â&#x20AC;Ś but â&#x20AC;Ś you say. These offices arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t downtown where the traffic congestion is; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the burbs where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no congestion

and in fact nothing, nothing but places to park. Plus, the bus only really works when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going downtown, or going somewhere from downtown. Your words are going to fall on deaf ears, you know that. You could launch a protest, but it would only be seen as another attempt by rich car-owning suburbanites to make life easier for themselves, at the expense of the planet. So life is unfair, except for the parking gods and their little friends. The scary thing is that it could get a lot less fair, when the remaining places where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to free parking start charging. That would mean the big suburban shopping centres, the big suburban movie complexes, the restaurants and supermarkets away from the downtown core. If the parking machines began appearing at St. Laurent and Kanata Centrum and McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Loblaws, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be madder than hell, right? And where would that get you? In a perfect world it would get you onto the bus, but this is not a perfect world and nobody seems much interested in making it one. Bus service is contracting just at the time it needs to expand, particularly on a local basis. In another version of a perfect world, we would shun the paid parking lot and walk to our neighbourhood stores. But few of us are close to neighbourhood stores any more, when they even exist. Maybe, in the long run, the inconveniencing of car owners will lead to pressure on city planners to create living spaces that are livable, where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to get into a car every time you want some little thing and where people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t soak you for parking every time you turn around. Maybe, this will happen in the long run and the Barrhavens of the future will look more like The Glebe and Westboro. There will be less traffic and we will all be in better shape for having places to walk to. Instead of total subjugation by the automobile we get liberation from it. That would be the vision, and letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope the vision sustains you as you grit your teeth and pay the machine.

Open more teen mental health facilities

we can create a solid strategy that can largely decrease the rate of teen suicides. The teen suicide rate in Canada is too high and can be reduced. My idea to reduce the rate of teen suicide in Canada is to open some teen mental health facilities, that create a comfortable environment to open up to someone. These facilities can give advice and help to the teenagers that need it and that is a potential solution to reduce the suicide rate in Canada and save lives.

Cutting down trees makes no sense Re: Sixty five thousand trees on the chopping block, May 10, KKS. According to Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson the City of Ottawa is planning

Ride for Dad on June 2 EMC news - Ottawa’s Telus Motorcycle Ride For Dad has launched its 2012 fundraising campaign, for its motorcycle ride being held in Ottawa on June 2 in support of prostate cancer research and awareness. The ride will be a day of fun for a serious cause. Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed men’s cancer. One in seven Canadian men will be diagnosed with this disease in their lifetime. “Prostate cancer is a needless killer for men,” said Jim Summers, co-chair of the Ottawa chapter. “The more the community is aware and educated about prostate cancer, the less chance there is to lose the men in our lives to this terrible disease. The Telus Motorcycle Ride For Dad not only raises funds to fight this disease, but it

also gives men and their families a reason to talk about it” The Ottawa ride is the largest across Canada. In 2011, it raised a record breaking $415,000 for prostate cancer research and awareness and had the highest number of participants of any Ride For Dad event at 2,350. This year organizers are aiming even higher with goals of raising $500,000 and having over 2,500 riders participate. To help the ride reach its goals, Freedom Harley Davidson of Ottawa is donating a Harley-Davidson 883 Iron motorcycle to give away to one lucky participant on ride day. The ride is Canada’s largest annual motorcycle event dedicated to fighting prostate cancer through research and awareness.

wood or the replacement of young saplings that do not survive. Ash trees quickly become brittle as they die, meaning they must be removed due to the public safety hazard. The loss of these trees will also result in direct personal cost to homeowners in reduced property values (estimated to be 2.4 per cent of the market value of your home) and increased energy costs. We will also lose the benefits

trees provide in controlling storm water run off and improving the quality of our air and health. The City of Ottawa’s plan to treat emerald ash borer has not been updated since 2008. The city should immediately adopt an adaptive management approach that is based on current science and the success of a treatment option available for ash trees. It is what a growing number of other cities like Burlington

and Hamilton have recently announced they are doing. Otherwise, Ottawa taxpayers will have spent the same amount, or more, and have nothing to show for it other than puny saplings to replace our mature ash tree canopy – a canopy that represents a quarter of the trees that grace our city’s streets and parks. Everyone in the community should be given a say in this. Donna DuBreuil Dunrobin

to allow the majority of its ash trees to die, rather than treat them for emerald ash borer. This makes no economic or environmental sense. If 65,000 municipallyowned ash trees are allowed to die, Ottawa taxpayers will be facing a $65 million bill over the next few years, as the city has indicated it costs $1,000 to cut down and replace a tree. And, this doesn’t include the cost of disposing of the R0351251042

To the editor: This purpose of this letter is to come up with ideas to reduce the teen suicide rate I am Tyler a 16-year-old boy in Grade 10 and I am writing this letter to argue that the teen suicide rate in Canada are to ohigh and can be reduced. I understand the other side of the argument and in some certain cases youth suicides can be prevented. About a year ago a girl that I knew committed suicide out of nowhere and it was one of the situations that could not have been prevented, the reasons that teenagers commit suicide is usually based on three things: mental illnesses, abuse, and peers.

Penny-wise ‘retirement home’ opens in Kanata Canadian pennies first stated work in 1858 but after a very long career it is time for them to retire. Kanata United Church (KUC) is reaching out to provide a welcoming ‘retirement home’ for our pennies. The KUC Penny Retirement Home had its grand opening at 33 Leacock Dr. on Sunday, May 6. There was a ribbon-cutting event and a speech from one of the new residents, a retiring penny. As with many retirees, these pennies will not just sit around gathering dust. They see themselves being actively involved in supporting many worthwhile local charities. Your pennies are welcome to join the KUC in their ‘golden years.’ Please drop them off at the church office during the week, 9 a.m to 3 p.m, or at a Sunday service from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Submitted photo

Garage sale raising both money and hope Chantal Mack

EMC news -When Emily Tieu was seven years old she came home from school telling her mom she wanted to make a difference, now, the 14 year-old continues to work toward that same goal. “It started in 2005 when she asked me about fundraisers and how to plan them,” Emily’s mother, Carol Tieu, said. “She said that she wanted to ask the principal of her school in Kanata to allow her to stage a big show and a silent auction in the gym to raise money for cancer research.” That evening, one of Carol’s co-workers emailed her, sharing the story of her son, Tyler Huneault. “Tyler is the only person in North America living with Sialidosis,” Carol explained. The disorder leaves Tyler’s body unable to produce an enzyme that breaks down and disposes waste nutrients. “Because of its rarity, there isn’t much funding or research for the disporder. When I told Emily about this, she immediately rewrote her letter to her principal, saying she wanted to raise funds for the Sialidosis research program at McMaster University.” Unfortunately, because it was so close to the end of the school year, Emily’s principal said the show

couldn’t happen. “I have never really taken no for an answer,” Emily said. “I decided to have a garage sale instead of the show. I grabbed all of my toys that I didn’t want or need anymore and sold them on our front yard.” Emily made $91 that day to give to Tyler’s cause. Since then, the garage sale has grown more and more each year. “This year marks our eighth annual garage sale,” Carol said. The garage sale, which was on May 6, was held at FrancoOuest Catholic High School in Bells Corners. “It’s a little different this year. All of the funds raised will be going directly to Tyler’s family,” Carol said. “Tyler had a kidney transplant in December of last year, and mobility has been much harder since,” she explained. To help with the “issue of mobility,” Emily had a goal of raising $1,500 for a bath lift/ chair and an additional $4,000 for a wheel chair. “We made $6,002.41 on Sunday,” Carol said, adding how proud she was of her daughter. Emily also said she was proud of her work so far. “I guess it kind of comes naturally,”shesaid. “(Fundraising)

Carol Tieu stands with her daughter, Emily Tieu, who organized her eighth annual garage sale for sialidosis which took place May 6. gives you a really good feeling, and everyone has been noticing that. I think it’s one of

the reasons the garage sale has been snowballing.” So far, Emily has raised

over $70,000 for Sialidosis research and for Tyler’s family. “That number will keep

growing with the years to come,” Emily’s father, Phil Tieu, said.

YMCA celebrates Dunrobin camp renovations Theresa Fritz theresa.fritz@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle – The newly renovated Bonnenfant Y Outdoor Education (BYOC) and Leadership Centre in Dunrobin offers something for anyone interested in the great outdoors. The addition of new buildings and equipment, as well as updates to existing buildings, means the BYOC can now serve anywhere from 15 to 300 participants for a single day program and up to 125 for overnight programs. The YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region celebrated the completion the two-year, $3.2 million project, by hosting a grand opening celebration at the centre Saturday, May 5. Members of the media and community were invited to

visit the centre, located on 30 acres of wilderness along the shores of the Ottawa River on Sixth Line Road. While there, they were able to tour the facilities and experience some of what it has to offer. The YMCA-YWCA has raised more than $12 million from its ‘Strength of the Heart’ campaign. From that, $1.2 million went to the Bonnenfant project, with the remainder of the funds coming from the federal and provincial governments in the form of $1 million each. Dierdre Speers, president and CEO of YMCA-YWCA National Capital Region, praised the partnership between her organization and the different levels of government, calling it a “huge donation to their community.”

Having served more than 100,000 children since it opened in 1947, Bonnenfant has “impacted so many lives in this community,” and Speers is hopeful the expanded facility will continue to make a positive difference in the community. The new buildings provide shade and space for rainy day activities as well as leadership courses and corporate retreats.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A push to reconstruct hundreds of pieces of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads, water pipes, bridges and more may have been too ambitious. Three major road reconstruction projects announced as part of the $340 million Ottawa on the Move initiative in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 budget wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start until 2013. Those projects include Main Street and in McIlraith Bridge in Old Ottawa East, Bronson Avenue from Carling Avenue to the Rideau Canal and Carling from the O-Train to Bronson. The projects were delayed because having too many major roads under construction at once could compromise the road network, clogging Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s streets and creating traffic havoc. In particular, reconstructing Main Street would seriously limit access across the Rideau River, so that road must stay open to allow for detours until next year, said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko. The delay isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily a bad thing, the councillor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as we get the consultation and design work started soon, it gives more time to get it right and it means we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have practically landlocked areas of town where mega projects are going on,â&#x20AC;? Chernushenko said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are just so many projects going on that it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense for a variety of reasons.â&#x20AC;? On Main Street, the delay will also give more time for design to ensure the issue of road vibration is addressed through the reconstruction, Chernushenko said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are talking about almost jumping in their seats,â&#x20AC;? in their homes due to traffic, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue that can be fixed as part of the rebuild, Chernushenko said. In all, Ottawa on the Move and infrastructure projects â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from rebuilding roads to fixing culverts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will account for $600 million in spending this summer, according to city spokesperson Jocelyne Turner. The delays will also help ensure staffing levels are up to par, Turner said. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 61 infrastructure project managers will handle 340 projects around the city this summer, and trying to include the major road projects on Main, Carling and Bronson would be a stretch for staff. Ottawa on the Move is intended to catch up on infrastructure work and particularly improve the trans-

Robot-assisted surgery officially unveiled at The Ottawa Hospital

Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thanks to generous donations, the Ottawa Hospital is now able to perform prostate surgery using the very latest in surgical technology. Robotic assisted surgery is now a reality at The Ottawa Hospital â&#x20AC;&#x201C;one of only a dozen hospitals in Canada to offer this groundbreaking technology. The technology provides an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but is typically limited to very simple procedures. The da Vinci surgical system is essentially a robotic hand that is manipulated by the surgeon to access hard-toreach areas of the body with

smaller incisions and great precision. It is currently being used to treat prostate cancer patients. Surgical oncologist, Dr. Rodney Breau demonstrated the da Vinci System on May 11 at the ofďŹ cial unveiling at The Ottawa Hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the future,â&#x20AC;? Breau said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are using technology â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in this case a high-tech surgical assistant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to reduce complications, minimize pain and facilitate faster recoveries. We are revolutionizing the treatment of many cancer patients.â&#x20AC;? The $5 million da Vinci surgical system was purchased entirely through community donations. Tim Kluke, president and CEO of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation said the da Vinci system is part of The Ottawa Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to 21st Century health care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are investing in stateof-the-art technology to support new approaches and new treatments. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an investment that depends on community support.â&#x20AC;?

Retired Senator Sharon Carstairs, a passionate advocate for palliative care across the nation, with Dave Ready former Sens Foundation president at a special Diamond Jubilee awards ceremony recognizing those who helped create the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s palliative-care facility on the grounds next to CHEO in Alta Vista on May 10. the nation was on hand to speak about the importance of palliative care for children and the need for hospice care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The symbol of a hospice care is allowing people to die in a rose garden, being surrounded by those who care, those who love and those who have compassion,â&#x20AC;? she said. She acknowledged that it

takes a community to create the support these families need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You make Canada a much better place and that is why you should be honoured with a Diamond Jubilee medal,â&#x20AC;? said Carstairs. The facility was named for former Ottawa Senators assistant coach Roger Neilson, who died from cancer in

2003. Award recipients included Dave Ready, a former Sens Foundation president, and Eugene Melnyk owner of Ottawa Senators Hockey Club. The duo were recognized for initiating the idea and all the work in getting the community on side at the beginning to make Rogerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House a reality.

Non-smoking Canal Festival EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Although the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expanded non-smoking bylaw doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply to federal parks or beaches, the annual Rideau Canal Festival has agreed to ban smoking this summer. The festival will take place from Aug. 3 to 8 along the canal, which is owned by the National Capital Commission and therefore exempt from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new, stricter smoking rules. But the festival has indicated it will not permit smoking this year, despite being free from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band, said Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical officer of health, Dr. Isra Levy during a health board meeting on May 7. This year marks the 180th birthday of the Rideau Canal, and the fifth anniversary since it was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also during the May 7

meeting, Levy indicated that Ottawa Public Health will be monitoring the health impacts of the impending cuts to the federal public service, which are expected to take a toll on the local workforce. Levy said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health unit will be tracking the mental health impacts of job cuts to the federal bureaucracy, the Capital regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest employer by far. Public health will also look at food bank use and unemployment levels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be following the impact with great interest,â&#x20AC;? Levy told the board of health. Levy said the city will be paying particular attention to any cuts at Health Canada and federal functions associated with public health. The Conservative government announced in its March budget that it would cut 19,200 public service jobs across the country over three years to save $5.2 billion a year.

Hudak holds town hall meeting in Nepean Ontario PC leader addresses Greater Nepean Chamber of Commerce Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news - Tim Hudak, leader of the provincial progressive conservatives, met with the members of the Greater Nepean Chamber of Commerce on May 11 to discuss plans to build a better Ontario.

The town hall was held at the Centurion Conference Centre on Colonnade Road and was the sixth such town hall, according to longtime chamber member Gavin Leishman. Hudak said his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan would rein in government spending and pay down the debt. He also said he plans to

lower the cost of electricity and do more to entice students into careers in the skilled trades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do more to encourage people to do business in Ontario,â&#x20AC;? Hudak said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to drain the swamp of red tape.â&#x20AC;? Hudak said the best way to reduce the cost of electricity is to do away with the feed in tariff programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can get good, reliable energy locally from Quebec at three cents per kilowatt hour or pay 80 cents for solar or wind energy,â&#x20AC;? Hudak said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paying

more for electricity just ďŹ&#x201A;unks good economic sense.â&#x20AC;?

costs under control.â&#x20AC;? Hudak said the government needs to get out of the way for companies to come into the province and create jobs. He added that utilities are some of the biggest costs of doing business and lowering those costs will go a long way towards providing incentive for investment in the province. Bill Price asked Hudak how he was going to get his message across to Ontarians and get a majority government after the next election. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are good ideas and

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I am auditioning for the role of premier.â&#x20AC;? ONTARIO PC LEADER TIM HUDAK

One man at the town hall said there was a man in Orleans who was shoveling his neighboursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; driveways to pay for his utility bills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was in his seventies,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to get those

people who are already conservatives will be impressed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But how do you plan to get people to change their vote?â&#x20AC;? Hudak said during the last election the conservatives did a good job of convincing people where the liberal government had gone wrong, but not a good enough job of showcasing their own ideas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was auditioning for the role of opposition leader, which I got,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I am auditioning for the role of premier.â&#x20AC;?

Museums increase â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;connexionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with new loyalty card Emma Jackson

seum will host an exclusive event for cardholders throughout the year, each with a different theme. Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill went with a ghost camp because of its history with haunted happenings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have links with paranormal activity so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going that route,â&#x20AC;? said Melanie Parker at Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill. Lewandowski said the exclusive events and discounted programming will offset any hit the museum might take through lost admission, although the museum will see some revenue return from card sales. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially with the discount on programming and the hope for repeat visitation, we hope we will still be encouraging a new cross-section of people to come or a new generation of museum visitors,â&#x20AC;? he said. The popular library pass available at the Ottawa Public Library which gives up to ďŹ ve people free admission to the 10 museums will still be available, although Lafreniere said the Connexion Card offers more perks. Several Connexion Cards will be given away through radio stations this summer, and they will be promoted through the Living Social online discount community as well.

EMC news - The Ottawa Museum Network has launched a new loyalty program it hopes will encourage more families to frequent its 10 community museums across the city. The Connexion Card was introduced Thursday, May 10, at Billings Estate National Historic Site in Alta Vista and promises free admission, discounted programming and access to exclusive events. The card applies to Billings Estate, Bytown Museum downtown, Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, the Diefenbunker in Carp, Goulbourn Museum in Stittsville, Nepean Museum, Osgoode Township Museum, Pinheyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point Historic Site in Dunrobin, Vanier Museopark and Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill in Manotick. For $70 per family or $50 per individual, card holders enjoy free admission for the year at the four museums that charge, and they can access exclusive and discounted programming at all 10 museums throughout the year. Brahm Lewandowski, administrator at Billings Estate and Pinheyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point, said he hopes the card will attract patrons from a broader region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping that we will be able to get visitors who are coming from across the city.

It costs $15 for a family to visit Billings Estate, and can range in price for special adult and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs offered throughout the year. Bytown Museum also offers a $15 family rate, and Cumberland Heritage Village Museum offers an $18 family ad-

mission. At the Diefenbunker, a family pass costs $40. To visit these four museums alone would cost a family $85 plus tax â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which means the family Connexion Card offers an automatic $15 in savings, project manager Megan Lafreniere said. The deal is not as sweet for individual passes, which cost $50 for the year. One-time admission to the four museums would regular-

ly cost $33 plus tax per adult, or $66 for a pair. However the savings could be made up in repeat visits to the museums and discounted ticket prices for special adult programs at all of the museums across the city, Lafreniere said. The card also gives access to exclusive events, such as a snowshoe hike at Pinheyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point Historic Site in the winter, a kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ghost camp at

Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill this summer or a paddle of the Rideau River at Billings Estate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The museums) offer similar programming to the general public but this is at the cardholderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rate.

Help a pug at Pugstock Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Diane Maroosis loves seeing the improvements pugs make after being rescued from puppy mills and are brought to loving family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love every minute,â&#x20AC;? said Maroosis, a Kanata resident who has brought in two foster pugs herself. Maroosis let her passion for pugs lead her to become the volunteer foster co-ordinator for Under My Wing Pug Rescue, which is hosting its 7th annual Summer Pugstock event to raise money to help care for the animals that are dropped off at the shelter. When the pugs are ďŹ rst dropped off, Maroosis said it can be a depressing sight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you see them coming in from puppy mills, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so lifeless, their eyes are dead, their tails are down and their coats are dull,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have no idea what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be touched gently and receive good food.â&#x20AC;? Under My Wing has had 215 pugs rescued since 2006, Maroosis said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been very busy.â&#x20AC;? The volunteer-run organization provides rescued pugs medical care, attention, comfort, balanced food, companionship and a loving home. The Summer Pugstock will be held at Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre on May 27 and will feature vendors who display clothing, dog apparel and dog spas. The event will also feature demonstrations, a bake sale, a silent auction and rafďŹ&#x201A;es. But the event isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just for pug enthusiasts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open to everyone who has a pet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an all-breed event,â&#x20AC;? Maroosis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open to anybody.â&#x20AC;? At the event, Maroosis said participants can also see the pugs that are up for adoption and visitors can learn more about the adoption process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always in desperate need of foster families,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always looking.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the event, Maroosis said the organization is looking for more volunteers. Under My Wing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pug Rescue was created in 2006 and hosts fundraisers throughout

Orleans Mayfair Theatre at risk Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

http://www.JimWatsonOttawa.ca

Little did we know that we would ignite an outpouring of interest when Councillors Rainer Bloess, Katherine Hobbs and I attended a meeting of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage on Tuesday, April 24, 2012. We were asked to testify on what we should be doing to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017. It seems to me that we should find a way to celebrate great Canadian achievements. We should be able to display, for all to see, artefacts that mean something to the real people of our great country. I proposed the idea of a Canada House to hold our most treasured national memories in the former US Embassy in Ottawa. This is an iconic space directly opposite Parliament Hill that would be greatly enhanced as the treasure chest of our nation. And it has been sitting empty for 10 years.

These are just a few ideas and we could find a thousand more in the bat of an eye. In addition to those above, other ideas I have mentioned are Celine Dion’s first Gold Record, or 4ERRY&OXST SHIRTORMAYBEEVEN*OSEPH"OMBARDIERSlRST snowmobile. People from across the country would love a glimpse of national treasures like these. I continue to receive a Tweets and emails from folks in Ottawa and beyond who have taken a few moments to offer their own suggestions. Everybody was taking a few moments to offer their own suggestions. Jane Osborne said, “We are totally behind you 100 percent. Love the idea we need it in Canada.

Ottawa Citizen columnist Joanne Chianello thinks the idea may be a hit – she wants to see a replica of the Galloping Gourmet’s kitchen! I’m too young to become a museum piece, let alone name, just yet! So send me your ideas for what should be included in Canada house by email to jim.watson@ottawa.ca or via Twitter @ JimWatsonOttawa and use hashtag #CanBucketList.

Mayfair Theatre co-owner Lee Demarbre sits in a theatre at the Orleans location. He said he may have to close down by next month if business doesn’t increase.

LEE DEMARBRE, CO-OWNER OF THE MAYFAIR THEATRE

The Mayfair plays a mix of classics and Hollywood hits, with a higher proportion of current blockbuster movies than the namesake Bank Street theatre. When a film is just released, theaters have to give the studio a much higher percentage of ticket sales during the first few weekends, so the Mayfair waits a few weeks before bringing them in. They can then charge significantly less; $5 per person once the customer has a $10 individual or $20 family membership. Non-member-

ship ticket prices are available as well. But “there are too many ups and downs,” Demarbre said. He thought that the 35mm film he uses would entice more visitors to the theatre. “Film is a treat and it’s worth driving across town for,” he said. It’s an independently-run theater with trained staff behind the projects; often kids will come up to see the projectors and how the films are stored before or after the movies. Hollywood studios are threatening to stop producing the 35 mm film and go all digital after this year, similar to the phasing out of VHS tapes, but both theatres own many originals that they would still show. The attendance numbers just haven’t been there, and if business doesn’t increase in the next few weeks, Demarbre is worried they will have to close the Orleans theatre. “We always say we want more in Orleans,” said Coun. Bob Monette, who added the Mayfair is one of the few places to show French films. “We have it, let’s not lose it.”

grounds. This includes making translations or subtitles into both English and French. One of the documentaries, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Passage to Ottawaâ&#x20AC;?, deals with immigration issues. Filmed in Ottawa, many residents will recognize some of the areas in the documentary, which has won a number of awards. There are other unique Canadian connections in the art, such a dance performance inspired by the movement of Niagara Falls. The opening night will have a special speaker, Dr. Stephen Inglis, Indian anthropologist at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Singh said that they are anticipating about 1,500 people to come through the doors for the event.

The festival is hosted by Gharana Arts, and a full schedule of events can be found at www.gharanaarts.com. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sponsored by Arts Ottawa East, ARTicipate, the City of Ottawa, Shenkman Arts Centre, Centrepointe Theatre, CHIN Radio-Ottawa and the Quality Inn, Orleans. Tickets are $15 for June 22, $20 for June 23 and $25 for June 24. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a huge amount of disciplines, and we want to really show them that this is a wide ranging art form and to underline the fact that there are a lot of Canadians here that are practising,â&#x20AC;? Singh said. The City of Ottawa has also declared June 24 as Indian Classical Arts Day, and Mayor Jim Watson will be making a formal proclamation, Singh said.

AllState Insurance companies within the Kanata/ Ottawa area are proud to present the funds raised at their Shred for the Cure event back in April 2012 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation; they raised a total of $3015.40. Thank you to all the communities that participated in the fundraiser.

The Canadian Gharana Festival, will feature artists from all over the country who practise Indian Arts, unlike many similar events that showcase artists born in India. In this case, many of the

artists are second or third-generation Canadians who still practise Indian arts and are of Indian origins, Singh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always saw phenomenal artists from India, and a lot of organizations bring in outside artists,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We wanted to focus on a stage and a platform for these Canadian artists who have been performing this art form for all of their lives,â&#x20AC;? he said.

New ‘sharrow’ lanes coming to city streets Painted arrows show where drivers, cyclists need to share road Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - As part of a new cycling safety push, the city will be painted a slew of new “sharrow” lanes this summer. The arrow and bicycle pavement markings assist cyclists and drivers with knowing how much space to leave and alert them when cyclists must take the lane. They are used on streets, such as Lyon Street, that aren’t quite wide enough for a dedicated cycling lane. And now, the city will be adding six new sections of sharrow lanes to the eight that already exist. New sharrows planned for 2012 include: • Somerset Street West between Wellington Street West and Booth Street • Wellington Street West from Island Park Drive to Somerset • Byron Avenue from Island Park to Holland Avenue • Tyndall Street from Holland to Parkdale Avenue • Parkdale Avenue from Tyndall to Gladstone Avenue • Gladstone Avenue from

Parkdale eastwards A couple more are already on the list for 2013: Cobourg Street from Wilbrod Street to Rideau Street and along parts of Rideau between Nicolas Street and the Rideau River. Other sharrows are possible, including O’Connor Street, but those are still under discussion and no confirmed plan has been made, said city spokesperson Jocelyne Turner. O’Connor is being looked at for cycling facilities as part of the Transportation Demand Management strategy for the Lansdowne Park revitalization, so any cycling plans for that street likely wouldn’t happen until 2013 or 2014, Turner said. Along with the new sharrows, the city launched an advertising campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of “dooring.” The city is urging drivers to look behind them before opening their doors and cyclists are reminded to position themselves one metre away from parked cars. Ottawa resident Danielle Nacu, 33, lost her life on Oct. 11, 2011 when the driver of a parked car on Queen Street opened the car door and knocked Nacu into the path of an oncoming vehicle.

Hundreds of women attended the Tea@12 event at the Hampton Inn where they heard stories of personal struggles with mental health.

Tea@12 event sheds light on women’s mental health Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Jessica Holmes had around 400 women laughing over her impression of Celine Dion at the Hampton Inn Conference Centre on May 8, but the comedian and Ottawa native said laughter was a way to cope with her mental illness.

“I’ve had my own challenges with mental illness,” Holmes told the crowd. “I suffered from post partum depression and it means so much to be here today. I was so blessed to have the resources to get over the shame and guilt and hiding and faking.” The tea lunch, called Tea@12, brought together

women from across the city to hear stories about other women’s personal struggles with mental health. The event was organized by Women for Mental Health, a philanthropic program at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre that aims to help transform patient care and research. In its first year, the program

has raised more than $1 million as part of the Royal’s $25 million Campaign for Mental Health. The event included the stories of those who have been affected by mental illness. Kristin Shannon, the Royal’s 2012 Inspiration Award recipient, opened up at the event about her struggle with depression and how it affected those around her. “A big part of living with depression is guilt,” said Shannon. “It was such a strong emotion that I felt when I was struggling.” Shannon said her mental health issues affected everyday things like going to work, paying bills, and seeing friends and family. “It created a lot of stress and sadness and confusion for my family,” she said. “But from day one, I had both parents, my brother and sister and they’ve all been incredibly supportive and taken a true keen heartfelt interest in mental health.” Her brother was at the airport waiting for a flight back to New Brunswick after she received the award at the Royal and opened up to somebody that he had been in Ottawa to see his sister receive the Inspiration Award. The woman had replied her own daughter had struggled with post partum depression and it was the first time she was talking about it. “My hopes are the women in this room develop that same passion through hearing other people’s experiences,” Shannon said.

EMC news - Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of preliminary Lansdowne Park reconstruction work on May 8 marked the first time the city councillor for Capital Ward, where the park is located, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cast a dissenting vote. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean David Chernushenko is suddenly onside with the project, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that he has no opportunity left to withhold his support for the plans, since council has already given the go-ahead. Chernushenko still questions the need to move the Horticulture Building, but since council already voted to approve that move and remove the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heritage designation to do so, there is no point in objecting on a vote now, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Should we move it,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Should we move it now,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and make cleaning up the soil a more efficient and thorough job and allow the restoration of the building to go ahead.â&#x20AC;? If the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get started on that work, it runs the risk of not improving the Horticulture Building at all if the project falls through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have â&#x20AC;Ś (it) spruced up and ready for use, albeit against good heritage prin-

cipals of not moving it, but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that part,â&#x20AC;? Chernushenko said. Moving ahead with some pre-construction work required city council to approve advancing $12.6 million from the total $14 million from the Lansdowne projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. Since councillors unanimously approved that plan on May 8, some work can now move forward, including the demolition of the Coliseum Building, relocation of utilities and other work related to moving the Horticulture Building. Approving preliminary construction work doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the Lansdowne Partnership Plan with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group has been finalized, however. The pact with the group of Ottawa business leaders working with the city to redevelop the park still needs the final approval of council. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance and economic development committee and city council will receive the final legal agreements with a report in the next few months. On April 30, three Ontario Superior Court judges agreed that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partnership with the OSEG doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t constitute an illegal subsidy for a private business, rejecting the Friends of Lansdowneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal appeal of the project.

In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fast-paced society, stress is everywhere. Whether driving to work, meeting a deadline, paying bills, or simply deciding whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for dinner, you are constantly under the burden of stress.

Oars for all ages at Ottawa River Canoe Club West-end organization offers many ways to whet your paddling appetite Gabrielle Tieman

EMC sports - The Ottawa River Canoe Club is welcoming residents to dive into their open house this June to learn how to step off the sand and into the water as they experience sports becoming increasingly popular along Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shores. The open house scheduled for June 3 introduces west Ottawa residents to the recreational and competitive paddle sports offered by the canoe club â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an Ottawa based nonprofit organization. Located at 1610 Sixth Line Rd. along the shores of the Ottawa River, the canoe club has served west Ottawa-area towns including Napean, Kanata and West Carleton, since its creation in 2002. One of the first organizations to feature a ladies-only team, the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members have evolved from a small group of 40 amateur paddlers to 140 regular contenders for medals at many local competitions. Known for their popular summer camps during July and August, the canoe club caters to people eight years and older â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as long as the participant is a competent swimmer. Popular among young children is the Canoe Kids Camp â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an introduction to paddling,

A U T O C A R E

&

for kids ages eight years and older, including lessons in spring canoe, kayak, dragonboat, outrigger, and recreational canoe skills. With no previous paddling knowledge necessary, the kids learn the basic skills involved with the sport while also participating in craft times, games and other sporting activities. This camp is a first step for kids who are looking to move on to higher levels of day camps the canoe club offers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including the Regatta Ready Camp that prepares kids for local racing regattas. Laura Tierney, a University of Western Ontario student, says some of her fondest childhood memories are from the camps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were such a good time and I remember never wanting to get out of the boat and go home,â&#x20AC;? said Tierney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never forgotten what I learned there, and I still canoe all the time at my cottage.â&#x20AC;? L.A. Schmidt founded the canoe club alongside her husband Bevin in 2002 when they moved to Ottawa and realized there was a niche to be filled in water education and a lack of knowledge about paddling sports in the area.

Bridlewoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Samantha Klus, seen above competing in the high school cross-country running championships for Bell, will likely get the chance to race at the Pan American junior triathlon championships later this season in Edmonton.

Mexico provides many lessons for triathletes Dan Plouffe

EMC sports - The Bytown Storm got their 2012 season underway with a trip to Huatulco, Mexico for the North American junior triathlon championships on May 5 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an eye-opening experience for all four teenage athletes taking part in their first international race. Each athlete realized that they still have a ways to go to reach the top as Patrick Smith

and Alex Maxwell placed 15th and 22nd respectively out of 23 junior men, while Elyse Charrier was 14th of 16 junior women, just behind teammate Samantha Klus in 13th. Klusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; result was likely good enough to earn her a place on the start line for the Pan American junior championships â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Bridlewood resident is currently the Canadian teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second alternate, but since the competition is in

Edmonton, the host country often receives four additional positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The competition was a lot harder than we thought,â&#x20AC;? said Klus, a Grade 11 Bell High School student. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we learned whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there and how hard we have to work to improve and get to where we need to be.

Hot conditions, early start took toll on athletes From MEXICO, page 31

The heat was another menacing force. Despite the 7 a.m. start time and preparing for the climate with heat protocol training – which involves setting up their stationary bike in the bathroom, cranking a space heater and running the shower on hot to create steam – the conditions took their toll by the end of the race. “It wasn’t so hot on the bike, but by the time we got to the run, it was around 33

degrees (Celsius),” Charrier recounts. “Our legs were exhausted from the bike because there were a bunch of hills, so that was a tough course. It was intense.” The Storm athletes also learned that things get nastier at the international level. Maxwell was pushed back by another racer the moment the gun went off before even diving into the water, and Klus was boxed in with swimmers to all sides and couldn’t move around them.

“Canadians, we’re polite – everyone runs into the water in a straight line and dives in,” said Storm coach Greg Kealey. “In international events, people are there to win, and it’s a mindset that it’s not for fun and fitness any more at that level.” Despite only deciding to make the trip to Mexico in March, Kealey had been expecting a bit better finishes from his group. But after the event, he reminded himself that past Storm world junior

championships competitors Joanna Brown and Tristan Woodfine were dead last and did not finish in their first international races. Kealey’s hope is that the younger generation will follow a similar path in their future, and that will mean racing in Mexico several more times along the way. Learning how to cope with travel is a key part to that success, Kealey added, highlighting the importance of not spending too much time outside, constantly drinking

water, taking naps and knowing that simply sitting by the pool drains energy. “None of them were really happy with the results,” said Kealey, who’s hoping that the early-season race will help them towards victories on home soil during Canadian junior series events later this year. “But I’m very proud of the way they handled themselves and the things that they learned from the trip.” The learning experiences continued after the race, in a

different context, however. A friendly local taught the young athletes how to catch crabs as they enjoyed some time on the beach, where “we did some tanning, or rather burning,” smiles Klus, displaying her scorched red legs. The parent chaperones weren’t about to complain about the race location either. “I think I saw them twice once I arrived,” Kealey laughs. “It’s a good resort town, and I believe they took advantage of the all-inclusive factor there.”

All Saints tennis athletes earn return trip to OFSAA Dan Plouffe

EMC sports - Call it a successful sibling switcheroo for Sheniz Eyuzlu, who repeated as national capital high school tennis mixed doubles city champion on Thursday, May 10, at Tennis Centre West Ottawa. Last year, when she was in Grade 11, the All Saints Catholic High School student teamed with senior Jon Willemsen to win the city title. With Willemsen now studying at Carleton University, Eyuzlu joined forces with Jon’s younger brother Joseph, and the duo matched the gold medal-winning result with a victory over Phil Kijek and Monica Slobozianu in the national capital final. “I kind of stole my brother’s partner from last year,” said the younger Willemsen with a smile, who also attended the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) provincial event last season as a boys’ doubles competitor. “Sheniz and I have been really great friends since Grade 7. It’s worked out really well, we played really well, and it’s been fun.” Having years of familiarity together helped out the All Saints pair quite a bit, especially since city championships are usually held at the end of fall (the usual Ottawa

Joseph Willemsen won the national capital high school tennis mixed doubles championship with All Saints teammate Sheniz Eyuzlu on Thursday, May 10 at Tennis Centre West Ottawa. Athletic Club site was under renovation in the fall, forcing the move to the West Ottawa clay courts, which proved to be popular amongst participants). “It was tough to find time during winter (to play),” said Eyuzlu, noting they both took a lot of time to focus on their studies. “But we definitely made up for it the last few weeks. We’ve been getting out in the mornings

and after school.” The additional attention on school paid off for both though – next fall, Willemsen will study concurrent education in sciences at Queen’s University, while Eyuzlu will attend either the University of Ottawa or McMaster for biomedicine or health sciences. But before moving on, the All Saints seniors are keen to enjoy a final memory together

in a sport they’ve come to love. “It’s fun no matter what the level,” said Eyuzlu, who’s enthused to see the three-yearold tennis team gain popularity at their school. “It’s been picking up. People have been finding out that we actually have a strong tennis program now so more people are coming out.” The pair who train mostly out of March Tennis Club – about a 20-minute walk

from All Saints – feel “really excited” to get the chance to play again at York University’s Rexall Centre, where the Canadian Open pro tour event is held annually. “It was really nerve-wracking last year going into a big tennis stadium,” recalls Willemsen, who works as a summer camp counselor at Tennis Centre West Ottawa. “We have more experience this year. We know a bit about what to

expect at OFSAA.” Eyuzlu and Willemsen are looking to improve on their results from last year when they had identical journeys with different partners – two match victories to reach the quarter-finals and then a pair of losses. “I think we have a nice chance to compete well,” Eyuzlu says. “We have a better feel for the competition, and we’ve practiced against some better players, so we’re a bit more prepared, I feel.” While it was an excellent finale in their last appearance at city championships for Eyuzlu and Willemsen, it was the opposite for Earl of March’s Grace Xu. The Grade 9 student kicked off her high school career with a bang, besting all her older competitors en route to the girls’ singles city crown. “I just wanted to do my best and see what happens,” says Xu, who plays almost every day at Carleton University minus Sundays. “I felt it was a bit of relief (when I won the final point).” Along with teammates Jenifer Kwok and Jenny Yu’s bronze in the girls’ doubles event, Xu’s gold medal led Earl of March to a secondplace finish in the team standings – just a point behind champion Immaculata.

Rhythmic gymnast, 15, earns trip to Canadian championships Earl of March student heading to Regina for senior level of national competition Dan Plouffe

EMC news - Set to compete in the Canadian senior championships May 22-26 in Regina, Lucinda Nowellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst season in the national level stream has already provided more than the 15-year-old Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club athlete could have asked for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what my expectations were, really,â&#x20AC;? says Nowell, who began gymnastics at age seven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to see how good I could get. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve improved a lot from last year, I think.â&#x20AC;? The Grade 10 Earl of March Secondary School student was a provincial duo champion last season with teammate Megan Kawai, but ďŹ nds that her skill level has increased alongside the number of hours she trains with her club every week: 20 and a half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that much time for my friends,â&#x20AC;? notes Nowell, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still happy to have her teammates occupy that role as soon as homework is out of the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really fun here. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a lot of

friends. We always do fun stuff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just working really, really hard all the time.â&#x20AC;? Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club coach Dasa Lelli, who runs the 300-member club primarily out of Bridlewood Community Elementary School, notes that time management is a key required trait for her top athletes, and Nowell deďŹ nitely ďŹ ts the bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very smart, organized person. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got the full package,â&#x20AC;? explains Lelli, adding that great family support is also part of the equation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First of all, Lucinda loves the sport. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s totally devoted. She has the natural ability with coordination. She has a good level of power, ďŹ&#x201A;exibility and strength. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at Lucinda, she has everything a rhythmic gymnast is.â&#x20AC;? Those qualities were certainly on display at the April 18-21 Eastern Canadian championships. The only competitor from the area, Nowell travelled with a Montreal group to the event in Moncton, N.B., which provided quite the atmosphere for the young athlete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty big,â&#x20AC;? Nowell describes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You marched out as your province instead of your club.â&#x20AC;? Despite the big stage, Nowell felt relatively calm during her two-day competition, and the results showed. She earned bronze medals for

R0011402320

her clubs and ball routines, and placed ďŹ fth in ribbon and sixth in hoop en route to a ďŹ fth-place ďŹ nish overall to earn her ticket to nationals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was surprising,â&#x20AC;? recounts Nowell, who felt her hoop routine was actually her best, although it was the same story for her competitors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really excited. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I was going to place that high.â&#x20AC;? Despite the impressive results, Nowell hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thought too much about what may lie ahead, although Canadian team berths could be on the horizon in future years. For now, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s targeting a top-10 ďŹ nish at her ďŹ rst nationals, although the main objective is to feel good about her routines when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting,â&#x20AC;? Nowell adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not nervous yet, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure I will be when it gets closer.â&#x20AC;? Nowell is far from the Kanata clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only member to excel this season. Fifteen individual gymnasts and four groups have earned the right to compete in the provincial championships starting June 8 in Etobicoke, Ont. including a trio who topped their categories at qualifying meets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kawai, Erika Lin and Jessica Luo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was absolutely delighted to see so many of our athletes do so well,â&#x20AC;? Lelli smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hard work we try to instill in our gymnasts is paying off.â&#x20AC;?

Ottawa Farmers’ Market officially opens this Saturday Special to the Kourier-Standard

EMC business – The Ottawa Farmers’ Market is celebrating the new location of the Market at Brewer Park with an official opening ceremony on Sunday, May 20 at 1 p.m. With great weather and green space, that has inspired impromptu picnics in the middle of the market, Brewer Park is a great location for the market. MPP Yasir Naqvi and local leaders, Councillors Chernushenko and Thompson, will be participating in the ceremony to show their support for the Ottawa Farmers’ Market. “We’ll be cutting our traditional burlap ‘ribbon’ to officially mark the opening of the farmers’ market,” said Robin Turner, President of the Ottawa Farmers’ Market Association. “With great weather and early crops, the market has been well attended. We hope to see more of the same this weekend.” On Sunday, the market will be in full swing with wagon rides by Clydesdale horses Winston and Sparky, children’s entertainers and musicians, and the market’s new tasting tent. Each Sunday, the Taste of the Season tent is offering simple food pairings to highlight what is in season, including recipes, food buying and storage tips. This week also marks the opening of the markets at Bayshore Shopping Centre on Wednesday, May 16, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and at Centrum Plaza in Orleans on Friday, May 18, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Over 100 vendors of locally-grown and locally-made food, farm products, arts and crafts come from within 100 kilometres of Ottawa to deliver the best of the region. Join us to taste early spring greens, asparagus, rhubarb, your favourite cheese, meat, eggs, and fresh baking. Or have snacks, meals or refreshments at the local food stalls. Event volunteers are needed to help organize and host events, and with general set-up of the market. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact us at events@ottawafarmersmarket.ca.

Derby day for CHEO Ottawan Evan Malamud, left, and former baseball all-star slugger Jose Canseco were both in the mood for some friendly competition on Saturday, May 12 when the two faced off in a homerun derby at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium in support of CHEO’s autism programs. Canseco accepted Malamud’s challenge over Twitter, and despite some big talk it was Malamud who eventually won the day with 14 softball homeruns. Canseco hit three baseball homeruns over a taller, farther fence. Canseco vowed to make the challenge an annual event.

No strangers to the sport, Bevin and L.A. both competed on the Canadian national team in the World Dragonboat Championships from 200408 – an event considered the Olympics of dragon boat racing. Schmidt says whether your focus is on the more traditional kayaking and canoeing or towards new sports like SUP – stand-up paddle boarding – there is an activity for every age, every swimmer and every athlete looking to get out on the water and have fun while being active. “It’s a day for everyone and anyone in the community to come down and see who and what we are,” said Schmidt. “It’s enormous how the program affects the community. We have this enormous waterway and there is no one here to teach people how to use it in a safe way. We are teaching anyone who comes through the doors of the club.” Constantly focusing on new ways to evolve the club, Schmidt said they started with one women’s Dragonboat team and no summer programming. “Year number two we offered summer camps for children and Dragonboat,” said Schmidt. “Then as the years rolled on, we offered regatta ready camps with a more competitive focus and the Canoe Kids camps for more recreational end of paddling.” Since then, they have added outriggers and a Paddle All Program for athletes with a disability, physical or intellectual – school field trips, and more adult and community paddling opportunities with stand-up paddle boarding. The club also offers what Schmidt calls a “personal focus on our own ORCC (Ottawa River Canoe Club) personalized pleasure canoe and water safety course for families to learn to cottage paddle or what to bring along on a canoe trip, how to portage that canoe and more.” Schmidt says the canoe club caters to the youth in the community. Employing mainly local high school students every season, Schmidt said the club offers teenagers a place to “hang out” while they learn to be an active member of a community. “You see some kids hanging out at Mac’s Milk and other kids out tagging things with graffiti and these kids need safe areas to hang out,” said Schmidt. “And we do call it ‘hanging out’ but it’s so much more than that. These kids are between 12 and 17 and they go down to the water every day before and after school and work hard. “The kids learn so many skills and how to be healthy, productive citizens of society,” said Schmidt. Many past members having gone on to be competitive athletes in rowing sports – original all female racing teams like the Dunrobin Dames Dragon Boat Team have finished as the top recreational women’s team at the Tim Horton’s Ottawa

Three ingredients all that’s Board to create needed for tasty spring salad business case for

Findlay Creek school

T

his week’s recipe is for a simple three-ingredient salad that features a colourful, tasty combination of spinach, avocado and strawberries. Although it’s quick and convenient to use a bottled salad dressing, you may want to make one of the following dressings for the salad. Both are quick and easy to prepare. The Roquefort dressing can be made thick and chunky or smooth and creamy. The raspberry vinaigrette dressing is light and has a slightly sweet flavour. The recipes for the salad dressings may make more than what you will need for this salad. Store any leftover dressing in the fridge for up to one week. SPRINGTIME AVOCADO AND STRAWBERRY SALAD FOR FOUR

• 1 large bag of fresh baby spinach • 10-12 fresh strawberries, sliced (or more if you like) • 1 avocado, peeled and cut into small, bite-size pieces • Your choice of salad dressing This salad is best prepared

Food ‘n’ Stuff just before serving. With baby spinach, I like to remove the stems and tear any large leaves into bite-size pieces. To prepare the salad, fill a salad bowl with the spinach, then arrange the strawberry slices and avocado on top. You can either drizzle the dressing lightly over the salad, or let everyone serve themselves at the table. HOMEMADE ROQUEFORT DRESSING

• 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (Roquefort) • 1/2 cup mayonnaise • 2 tbsp. sour cream • 1/4 to 1/3 cup milk For a chunky texture, mix the ingredients with a fork. For a smooth texture, use a food processor. The thickness can be varied by the amount of milk you add. To prepare the dressing, combine the cheese, mayon-

naise and sour cream in either a bowl or a food processor. Gradually stir or blend in the milk until the dressing reaches the desired consistency. Makes about 1 1/2 cups RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE DRESSING

• 1/3 cup olive or vegetable oil • 1/4 cup white sugar • 1/4 cup raspberry vinegar (or raspberry-flavored red wine vinegar) • 1/2 tsp. salt • 1/2 tsp. onion powder • 1/4 tsp. dried basil To make this vinaigrette, use a container, such as a small mason jar, that has a tight-fitting lid. Combine all the ingredients in the jar. Close the lid tightly, and shake well. If you are making this ahead, just before serving, shake the dressing again. Makes about 2/3 cup.

EMC news - The construction of a new elementary school in Findlay Creek will be considered by the Ministry of Education this summer. Every year, the ministry looks at the top-10 business cases for new schools or additions submitted by each school board. Findlay Creek sits number 12 on the Ottawa public school board’s capital priorities list, but two of the top 10 projects’ business cases have been presented to the ministry in previous years. Trustee Mark Fisher (Gloucester Southgate/Nepean/Osgoode) said there is still much work to complete before construction of a new school can begin. “My priority now is to confirm that a business case is going to be developed, making sure that we are on the list for accommodation reviews that would need to be undertaken in 2012-13 to make sure we have got all the steps in place to go forward with a new build hopefully in 2014 because that has always been the target date,” said Fisher.

The Findlay Creek Community Association on May 11 launched a school age survey to understand how many children in the community that are attending or would be attending a public elementary school. “We are trying to get a good understanding of how many children will go to the school

“We were promised, there would be a school when we were moving here.” SHELLEY DOUGAN

if it is built,” said Sumana Jana, chair of the association’s education committee. The survey asks questions like if your child attends another public elementary school, will you move them to the new school in Findlay Creek? Not having an elementary school in Findlay Creek, a community of mostly young parents, has been difficult according to parents that showed up to fill the survey. “It is difficult and very

frustrating,” said Shelley Dougan. “We were promised, there would be a school when we were moving here.” Currently, about 250 children living in Findlay Creek attend Ottawa Carleton District School Board schools outside the community. The need for an elementary public school in Findlay Creek has become a significant issue given the neighbourhood’s rate of growth, said trustee Fisher. “If you look at Findlay Creek, it meets at least five criteria’s that the ministry has set and that speaks well for what we are trying to do as a community in moving this project forward,” he added. He hopes having the business case developed for the project will mean maintaining the 2014 opening date. “I haven’t received any indications that date is slipping at all but it is something I am watching every single day and making sure we are pushing this project forward as aggressively as we can,” said Fisher “I think it is important for the community and it is important for me to make sure we get this resolved. It’s been going on now since 2006 and we need some clear timelines and direction from the ministry in terms of how they are going to move forward with this community.” The majority of students in Findlay Creek currently attend Elizabeth Park Public School.

Sleeping on a straw mattress didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always point to poverty MARY COOK G oodness knows, I was used to sleeping on a feather mattress. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean I went all over Northcote bragging about it. My sister Audrey said only poor people used feathers, because feathers were free. My little friend Joyce slept on a mattress that was tufted and about six inches thick. Pink with blue ďŹ&#x201A;owers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what luxury! There were no feathers in Joyceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mattress. If I complained to Mother about the differences in Joyceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mattress and mine, she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to tell me we were lucky to have feathers. She knew some farmers who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raise enough chickens to get the ample supply of feathers needed to ďŹ ll a mattress. And they certainly couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford a felt mattress, like my friend Joyce slept on. What they used was straw. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe anyone in the entire Northcote area actually slept on straw. When I approached Audrey about it, she said Mother was right, there were indeed people, neighbours in fact, whose mattresses were stuffed with straw. It certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a subject you could easily bring up in the school yard, even though I was dying with curiosity. I found myself looking over the girls at the Northcote school, trying to ďŹ gure out just who was poor enough to sleep on straw, but was never able to single out one person who I thought couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even afford enough chickens for feathers. Well, the riddle was solved for me one day and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do a thing about it

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories other than accept an invitation from Gracie to spend the night at her farm on the next line. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at all unusual for us at the Northcote school to be invited to stay at one anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home for a night. I never liked to be away from my mother, not even for a night, but if the neighbour lived close enough and they had a horse and buggy just in case I had to come home through the night from homesickness, I was willing to go for the overnight visit.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There under the flannelette sheet, making sounds just as if we were playing in the hay loft in the barn, I came face to face with my very first straw mattress. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Gracie lived in a log house just like ours. She too, came from a big family, went to the same church we did and her brothers and sisters all went to the Northcote School. That day, along with my lunch and book bag, I carried to school a brown paper bag with my pajamas and clean underwear in it. You would never dream of going anywhere overnight without clean

underwear. It was like going to church in your bare feet. Gracieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen table was longer than ours and it needed to be in order to accommodate all the brothers and sisters. Like ours, it had two benches on either side instead of chairs. The table was amply laid and like us, not a morsel was touched until Grace was said, after which there was the greatest commotion as each of Gracieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brothers made a stab for a pork chop from a plate that was stacked sky-high. Gracieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother slapped the brother closest to her, and her father did the same with the brother at his elbow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you see we have company?â&#x20AC;? he roared. I looked at the table piled high with food and I decided then and there Gracieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one of the poorest in the Northcote area. With that many hands, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to red up the kitchen. The whole family settled down to playing board games, whittling, looking through the Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue and Gracieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, just like mine did every night, pulled up a chair to the cookstove, pulled down the oven door, propped up his feet and got into reading the Family Herald and Weekly Star. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how it was

arranged, but Gracie and I had a bed to ourselves. That probably meant that three of her sisters had to sleep together. When her mother rolled down the top quilt, and Gracie and I plopped into bed, I quickly learned what a straw mattress felt like! There under the ďŹ&#x201A;annelette sheet, making sounds just as if we were playing in the hay loft in the barn, I came face to face with my very ďŹ rst straw mattress. I was sure I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shut an eye all night. I wondered if it was clean. How many horses or cows had been bedded down on it before it was brought into the house and packed into a ticking? But it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smell like straw or hay. There were fresh sheets on the bed with that wonderful outdoor smell I was used to at home. The pillows were made of feathers, for which I said a silent prayer of thanks. When I was taken home the next day in the buggy, there were no signs that Gracieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family was poor. Her father smoked a pipe just like mine did. And the horse was fat of rump, which Father always said was a sure sign of a well looked-after animal. No, there was no sign of poverty anywhere. And they had a telephone long before we had one. So why were they sleeping on straw mattresses? My sister Audrey, always my main source of information, said she was sure it was because Gracieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother was so busy having babies, she never did have enough time to pluck chickens, wash feathers and stuff mattresses. At that young age, it all made perfect sense to me.

Barrhaven students get schooled on polar bears Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news - Olivia Clement, a Grade 3 student at St. Andrew Catholic School in Barrhaven, continues to do what she can to preserve the arctic habitat of polar bears. Olivia began making clay polar bear ďŹ gurines in October and sold them to friends, family and community members to raise money for the World Wildlife Fundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (WWF) polar bear campaign. Thanks to a $1-million campaign in partnership with Coca Cola, her $200 was matched. Olivia has since adopted her very own polar bear, which was ďŹ tted with a tracking collar and will be monitored via satellite. Now the eight-year-old is something of an expert. Thanks to the WWF, Olivia was able to talk with polar bear biologist Geoff York, who has actually been to the arctic and worked at developing tracking devices to monitor the bears migration and hunting patterns.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;She learned so much from that,â&#x20AC;? Oliviaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Julie said. By February she had already talked to ďŹ ve classes at her school, prompting a school-wide art project about the polar bear. On May 10, the Clement family held a rafďŹ&#x201A;e at the school with more clay ďŹ gurines and an original painting made by Oliviaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom and local artist Julie. They brought in another $180 for the cause. On May 11, Olivia and her mother awarded one student from every class a loot bag ďŹ lled with knick knacks from the WWF. They also handed out a polar bear adoption kit and donated the polar bear painting to one lucky student. On May 17 Olivia was to speak to nearly 600 students at St. Paul High School about the work she has done and what she knows about polar bears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have to go and hunt 20 times for one dinner; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot,â&#x20AC;? she said. Since beginning her project, Olivia said she wants to continue to help animals, something her mother said she sees as a calling.

Organizations call for national food policy Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Community organizations outlined the challenges faced by low-income earners when it comes to finding their next meal during a meeting with a United Nations special rapporteur in Ottawa on May 8. Just Food and the Ottawa Poverty Reduction Network, two such organizations, discussed the lack of food security and the quality of the food available to struggling families with Olivier De Schut-

ter, the UN special rapporteur working on a report on the right to food,. “From the ground, what we are seeing is an increase in disparity,” said Cathleen Kneen, director of Just Food. “We need a national treatment to this problem.” Linda Lalonde from the Ottawa Poverty Reduction Network demonstrated to De Schutter the current food security situation in Ottawa. Three baskets were on the table next to De Schutter, one from a food bank, set to feed

a family of four for one week, the second was a basket full of nutritious food for the same family, with a value of $120. The third basket was a good food box, which offers a family fruit and vegetables for one month for the cost of $10. Lalonde said she hoped something could be done to ensure that proper nutrition plays a part in the UN report. In response, De Schutter said he believes it should play a part. In an informal address to

the audience, De Schutter said the cost on the health care system is huge and is influenced significantly by the treatment of the many side effects of high sodium and high carbohydrate diets typical of food bank offerings. De Schutter first wrote a UN report addressing the need for food security in 2008. At the time, he said Canada committed to following the recommendations in the report, but as he understands it, there has not been an effective follow up.

He said he formally asks different countries all over the world to participate in his study. “To Canada’s credit, they have agreed to this visit and loyally co-operated in this,” De Schutter said. Canada is the first developed country to participate in a visit from De Schutter. “The message I am sending is all countries have problems and everyone has the right to food,” De Schutter said. His final report will be presented in March 2013.

De Schutter visit in Canada ends on May 16. At that time, he promised Lalonde and Kneen he promised he would share a preliminary report on Canada, in which case, he said he hopes will be more effective for the government to address their country’s situation. “I am optimistic if pressure is built, things can be achieved.” De Schutter said.

Youngsters honoured for making the right call Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A pair of south Ottawa children were among six youth honoured for making the right call in an emergency during the 14th annual 911 Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Achievement Awards held at city hall on May 11. Gavin Abraham, who was 10-years-old at the time of his call to 911 last October, acted quickly in getting his father the assistance he needed on three separate occasions after suffering from a seizure. Presenting the award to Abraham, Bay ward councillor Mark Taylor, who also serves as chair of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community and protective services committee, said he was very impressed with the recipientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to confirm both his address and his phone number and how he calmly answered medically specific questions about his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical status. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gavin even reassured the paramedic communications officer he was speaking with, that he knew exactly what to do to help his dad, because his mother, had previously taught him now,â&#x20AC;? said Taylor. Abraham even provided his father with first aid care until the arrival of the paramedics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their acts are an example of individuals being prepared

Helping a ping pong champ follow his dream michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Ping pong enthusiasts had the opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade from Ottawa’s 2012 Olympic table tennis qualifier in the Byward Market on May 9. The free event, held at SpinBin at 310 Dalhousie St., was organized in an effort to help Canada’s Pierre-Luc Hinse raise money to for his upcoming three months of intensive pre-Olympic training. In the past year, Hinse has travelled the world to play against some of the best table tennis players in the world to gain the experience needed to qualify for the Olympics. “It is a really amazing feeling,” he said. “When I qualified I shouted so loud. This was the dream for me – really it is a dream of every athlete.” Now only months away from the London 2012 Olympic Games, Hinse will no longer train outside of Canada, but at the Canadian National Training Centre in Ottawa. The evening event was part

of an effort to help Hinse raise money so he can afford to continue training against the best in the world. “To me it makes sense to continue to train against the best,” Hinse said. “Why play against the best and then when it really counts, not? He mentioned he is taking a risk if he leaves the country to train, including getting kicked off the Canadian team, but he said it is the only way he wants to train. “I know I can do better,” Hinse said. “The training centre is good now, but to reach your best level you need to play against the best.” The University of Ottawa student moved to Ottawa to hone his table tennis skills from Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Que. Even though he misses his hometown, the 24-year-old said it has always been about qualifying for the Olympics. “It has been worth it,” Hinse said. “Travel, fight hard, push yourself to get to this point. I am very excited to go.” Hinse has been playing

table tennis since he was nine years old, when he and his brother decided to try out their parents’ old table in the basement. Always good at sports, Hinse said he really never took the game too seriously until he purchased a new racket, which came with a coupon to participate in a local tournament. From then on, he was hooked. By the time he was 13, he was training two times a day. At 17, Hinse moved to Ottawa to train full time. Over the years he has travelled to China (seven times), Finland, Austria and Germany to take on new challenges and hone his skills. He has won the National Team Challenge, Canadian National Championships and the North American Championships. In the past two years, Hinse’s game has been steadily improving. He is currently ranked 297 by the International Table Tennis Federation. Hinse qualified for the Olympics on April 22.

EMC news - Debts owed by the Rockcliffe Park School Council will be paid off in part by using the school’s book fair money following the discovery that more than $75,000 went missing from the council’s bank account. The council’s board of directors is responsible for money generated by a number of programs for students at the school, including milk and a pizza lunch programs. The money helps fund things such as school trips and an afterschool homework club. After discovering more than $75,000 was missing from their bank accounts in late March, the council spent the month of April trying to sort through accounts owing and sought to secure a loan to cover any liabilities. At a May 8 meeting, the council announced the payment plan to parents. “We are committed to paying off creditors, ensuring continuity for services and to minimize the burden to future councils,” said Elise Zarkadas, president of the council. To help cover these costs, the council will use $19,000 from the 2011 book fair money. This money was not allocated to anything, but the idea did not sit well with some parents, who asked what the school and their children will be doing without as a result. The money could have been used to purchase two Smart boards and pay for a portion of a new play structure. Another $4,000 was to be donated to a local school. “These were suggestions, but they have not been discussed beyond that,” said Gillian Campbell, a member at large of the council. The money will help cover

the cost for the pizza program and the annual Grade 6 trip. Book fair chairwoman Seanna Kreager addressed the board’s decision on behalf of the book fair committee. “We are upset the community has been put in this horrible situation, but we are happy we have worked hard to come up with a solution,” she said. The missing funds were brought to light when Bettye Hyde, the provider of the after-school daycare program, notified parents the program had not been paid since December 2011 and the council had an outstanding balance of $29,696. After reaching an agreement with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, Bettye Hyde and outstanding invoices for the milk program have been paid in full. The board, Zarkadas said, is committed to rebuilding the trust of the school community and maintaining a tradition of volunteerism. The controversy has generated a great deal of inter-
