EMC news - People relay for various reasons. Danielle Morin, and her team The Incredibles, took part in the Relay for Life event in Kanata to repay the Canadian Cancer Society for funding Morin’s participation in a clinical trial after being diagnosed with colon cancer in 2010. “This is why I’m here,” said the Emerald Meadows resident. “I’m paying it back.”

Three years ago, Morin’s doctor found cysts on her ovaries and she was scheduled for a hysterectomy. Three of the 12 cysts were cancerous, which the doctors discovered originated in her colon. Morin was sent for a CT scan, which revealed the cancer had spread to her liver. “I was told I had a 30 per cent chance of survival,” said Morin. She began chemotherapy treatment and was placed in a clinical trial to help combat the disease. However, when she went to pick up her trial prescription, the total of the drug came to $6,000. Morin called the clinical trial team and asked to be taken off the list – even though she had health benefits she couldn’t afford the medication, she said.

‘Being a woman isn’t about B having breasts’: cancer survivor $ 3,000

** D C

Continued from page 1


This year’s Relay for Life event raised more than $128,500. Even with damp, chilly and rainy weather persisting over the 12-hour relay, 42 teams took part in the event held at Walter Baker Park on June 7 and 8.

The clinical trial team informed Morin that the Canadian Cancer Society would cover the costs and after finishing the trial, her cancer had diminished by 57 per cent. “There is nothing better than going to a doctor appointment and being told your cancer shrunk,” said Morin. This past spring, Morin took part in another clinical trial, after receiving news that the cancer had spread to her lungs. “After the relay, I’ll go back (for more treatment),” she said. “I’m not a quitter.” The Incredibles – made up of Morin, her husband, their adult children, family, friends and co-workers – raised $6,000 for this year’s Relay for Life. “This is one month of my clinical trial I’m able to pay back,” said Morin.

South Keys resident Erin Beasley cheered on the participants at the Relay for Life event. It took her two years to come to terms with her new body. But eventually the Beaverbrook woman grew to love herself again. “This was the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Morin said. She was the first woman who underwent a double mastectomy to pose topless on the cover of a book. “We’re always told we have to be perfect,” Morin told the crowd. “No. What’s inside … it’s what’s important. “We should be proud we are survivors,” she added. Cancer taught her about priorities. “I used to be materialistic,” said Morin. “How can I be upset (at) having cancer when

Linda Morin spoke at the relay about her own experiences with cancer. Author of The Courage to Look Beyond, she told the crowd gathered under the survivors’ tent about her battle with breast cancer and how she fought to come to terms with her new figure after a double-mastectomy. “Being a woman isn’t (about) having breasts,” she said, something she had to learn.

Garden of Weeds to open for Trooper

Stittsville-based indie rock group Garden of Weeds will open the main stage for Trooper during the Canada Day in Kanata festival at Walter Baker Park on July 1.

Canada Day in Kanata to feature many local artists Jessica Cunha

EMC entertainment - Stittsville-based indie rock-group Garden of Weeds will open the main stage for Trooper during the Canada Day in Kanata event at Walter Baker Park, July 1. The four-piece band reapplied for the position after opening for Sloan in 2011, under the name Plush Garden, and nabbed the coveted time slot. “For the Sloan show, we really liked the atmosphere; just being at that big festival,” said Adam Traversy, who plays guitar and vocals. “Just the sea of people out there you’re playing to is great.”

We’re going to put on a high energy rock show, mixing a lot of well known covers with a lot of original songs. ADAM TRAVERSY GARDEN OF WEEDS

The band – which also features Skyler Radmore on vocals and guitar, Shawn Baldwin on bass and vocals, and Greg Higgins on drums and vocals – is planning on giving the audience a great show. “We’re going to put on a high energy rock show, mixing a lot of well known covers with a lot of original songs on the album we’re about to release,” said Traversy. “We’re excited to open for (Trooper).” The band has a new album, Homemade Lemonade, which is set for a summer release and will

be available at the Canada Day show. The title for the 10-track disc was chosen “because we made it all by ourselves,” said Traversy. Garden of Weeds can be found online at, followed on Twitter @gardenofweeds1 and liked on Facebook. SUBMITTED

BEST BAND R0112063993

Diane McNulty, program director and stage manager for Canada Day in Kanata, said the band was a favourite with the committee and with the members of Trooper, who have the final word about the opening youth band. “They said they have absolutely no concerns,” she said. “They’re a great fit with our headliner.” Although the band has played the show before, they were chosen to open again because they had the best application – having stepped up their social media presence and stage performances. “Out of all of them, they were the best band. They really upped their game,” said McNulty. “They honed their song writing skills, they honed their performance skills … They’ve just done everything they’re supposed to do as a dedicated and committed band.”

Reject sole-sourced casino location: chamber Blair Edwards

EMC news - The Kanata Chamber of Commerce is calling on city council to vote against Mayor Jim Watson’s motion identifying the Rideau Carleton Raceway as the only acceptable site for a future casino. The city should allow all sites to be considered, including a potential bid from the organization that runs the Ottawa Senators for Scotiabank Place, said Rosemary Leu, the chamber’s executive director. “You have to consider ... Scotiabank Place, there’s no question,” she said in a letter sent to all city councillors. The mayor tabled his motion at the city’s finance and economic development committee on June 4, to be considered at a future meeting in July. The Ontario Gaming and Lottery Corporation will only allow one gaming site in a designated zone, said Watson, adding that it was “becoming increasingly clear that there would be no future role for the RCR given the OLG’s most recent position. “Therefore, I do not believe we should jeopardize the Rideau Carleton Raceway operation by not being crystal clear to the OLG prior to the start of its RFP process.” But all potential sites should be considered on their own merit, said Leu, a position presented by the chamber at a finance and development committee meeting on Oct. 2, 2012. “That’s really what we’ve been


Scotiabank Place as well as other potential sites across the city should be considered for a possible future casino in Ottawa, says the Kanata Chamber of Commerce. hoping, all locations would be considered on their own merit, what is best for the community and they would all be considered on a level playing field,” said Leu. “Obviously that playing field has been taken away with the focus on Rideau-Carleton -- all or nothing.” Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk blasted the mayor last week for introducing a “sole-sourcing”

motion. Scotiabank Place is a good option for a casino site, said Melnyk in a public statement. “Experienced gaming service providers who understand fully the complexity involved in considering an optimal site for a major casino in Ottawa have told us our site with over two-million plus visitors annually serviced by the largest parking lot in eastern Ontario and its location offering high visibility adjacent to a major provincial highway makes for a perfect location,” wrote Melnyk. “Unfortunately, the mayor’s decision to submit this notice of motion will eliminate any and all discussions with the shortlisted service providers about selecting an optimal location for Ottawa’s future casino. By introducing this motion, the mayor has effectively sole-sourced the casino’s location. That is not due process.” Melnyk said a casino located at Scotiabank Place could produce an “incremental $40-50 million” in

gaming revenue compared to the raceway. SCOTIANK PLACE CASINO

Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri said he supports a Scotiabank Place casino location. “The only reason I would have supported Rideau Carleton is if (the casino) was going to be located downtown,” he said . “I was not in favour of a downtown location.” Qadri said he intended to attend the finance and economic development committee meeting when the mayor’s motion is tabled. “I will be debating rigorously the fact that we should have public consultation on this,” he said. Compared to the horse track, Scotiabank Place has plenty of parking and access to Highway 417 and is located near Highway 416, he said. “For me, I think it’s important to have an entertainment hub for the city and its surrounding areas and part of that entertainment hub is already there in terms of Scotiabank Place,” he said. “If anybody can handle an entertainment hub and do a good job at it, I think it’s the people who’ve operated the Ottawa Senators for years.” The city has failed to conduct any public consultation on a casino site, Qadri added. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said it has been made clear from the emails sent to councillors and through public opinion expressed on talk radio that Rideau Carleton is the preferred location for a casino. “Since we started talking about this six to eight months ago, all people who express support for a casino overwhelmingly, Rideau Carleton was the location they thought it should be at,” he said. “We were not

hearing any large amount of support for any other location. So I think the mayor is listening to what people are telling him.” The mayor has made a major shift from his original push for a downtown casino, said Hubley. “Councillors are lining up behind his position because they’re responding to what residents have told him,” he said. Hubley said he wasn’t sure if the chamber’s position on a casino location reflected the views of its membership and that the Ottawa Senators should have signalled its desire for a Kanata casino earlier in the process. “I did not hear from the Sens that they had any interest whatsoever,” he said. “If Mr. Melnyk wants to look at other opportunities in the area for development around the site, I would appreciate being informed. I want to do everything we can to help the Senators prosper.” Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said council shouldn’t take any position on a casino location until after it consults with the public and considers the economic case for each potential site. “If they want to have it where it can make money, we need to have it where it makes money,” she said. Locating the casino at the racetrack would require hundreds of millions of dollars in transportation infrastructure funding, she said. “Building roads is not cheap.” Wilkinson said she’s only received a few emails on a preferred location for the casino. “I still don’t have a problem with (the racetrack) being considered, but it shouldn’t be considered in isolation,” she said. “That to my mind is sole-sourcing.” With files from Emma Jackson

Thompson said he “was going crazy” trying to make OLG and Watson see the racetrack’s potential. “I’ve said this continually: We have 1.7 millions visitors going every year; they give $70 million to the province already; they’re going to build hotels, they have ample parking,” Thompson said. “It’s so logical that it would be there, it just cries out.” He said the change of heart won’t please everyone - several businessmen including Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk have already spoken out against the plan - but Thompson believes this is the right way forward. “The people around there, they’re (already) living with the racetrack there, so why not move ahead,” he said. Raceway manager Jean Larose said the mayor’s announcement is welcome but

Racetracks across the province were shocked in March 2012 when the McGuinty government and OLG scrapped the long-standing Slots at Racetracks program, a revenue-sharing agreement with rural racetracks. Since 2000, the Rideau Carleton Raceway has hosted 1,250 slot machines that subsidized any losses from running the racetrack programs. FILE Without a revenue sharing Mayor Jim Watson has scrapped his idea of a downtown casino, and now says the Rideau program, the racetrack is un- Carleton Raceway is the only appropriate place for a gaming facility in Ottawa. sustainable. “In the current formula horse racing is only limping along and losing money,” Sales Representative said MacMillan, a horse racer of 25 years.

wouldn’t comment further. The raceway’s spokesperson Alex Lawryk wouldn’t comment either on the impact this could have on the raceway, since it is already part of the process to be pre-qualified for the development, he said.


EMC news - An entire industry breathed a sigh of relief on Monday, June 3 when Mayor Jim Watson said the Rideau Carleton Raceway should be the only option for a future casino in Ottawa. “Obviously anyone affiliated with horse racing and the Rideau Carleton Raceway is thrilled with the news,” said John MacMillan, founder of the National Capital Region Horse Racing Association, and leader of the Casino Choice Ottawa campaign. “There’s a lot of relieved people at Rideau Carleton because they were worried about losing their jobs.” In a surprising about-face on the issue, Watson informed councillors by email on Monday night he would propose “that the city identify the Rideau Carleton Raceway as the only acceptable location for an expanded gaming facility in Ottawa.” He tabled his motion at the city’s finance and economic development committee on June 4, to be considered in July. Given that the Ontario Gaming and Lottery Corporation will only allow one gaming site in each designated gaming zone - killing the hope of a satellite slots program to complement a downtown casino - Watson said it was “becoming increasingly clear that there would be no future role for the RCR given the OLG’s most recent position,” he wrote. “Therefore, I do not believe we should jeopardize the Rideau Carleton Raceway operation by not being crystal clear to the OLG prior to the start of its RFP process.” For the past year, Watson has vocally supported an urban casino location. Community leaders like Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod have been fighting against him to save the raceway’s monopoly on gaming in the city.

The raceway has been suffering since the end of March, when the province ended its 13-year revenue-sharing agreement through the Slots at Racetracks program. With a new casino planned for downtown – and thus the permanent removal of the racetrack’s slot machines – the raceway was all but doomed.

Let’s avoid casino tunnel vision


ollowing recent upheaval in the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation boardroom and a change of tact on casinos initiated by the premier’s office, Mayor Jim Watson has also made an about face on the issue. After making the case for the city to support a downtown casino, the mayor now wants to see any new gaming facilities placed at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. While this is great news for anyone connected with the horse racing industry, it should be at least a little disconcerting for many residents as once again city hall is narrowing the discussion about a particular issue. Remember the epic court battles fought by the city over the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park? Many of the arguments against the city partnering with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group pointed to a lack of open competition. Isn’t that what’s happening here? Like with Lansdowne, there is at least one other group interested in making a serious bid to build a casino in another area of the city: Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, wants the opportunity to build one beside Scotiabank Place. A francophone business group has also called for an open competition for any new gaming facility. An open competition only makes sense, not only

for the bidder, but the city as well. Competition would see multiple business plans presented to the city, which staff could in turn evaluate to come up with a recommendation that makes the most sense for Ottawa. More than likely, what makes sense for Ottawa would be a proposal that maximizes gambling revenue for the city, as this is really the only reason to build a new casino – if we’re not in it to make money, we probably shouldn’t be building one at all. This is not to say the raceway can’t present a compelling business case. It has lots of land to build on and few neighbours to annoy. Area gamblers are also familiar with the existing slots, so there is an existing customer base. The biggest drawbacks to the site are a lack of growth potential due to its distance from downtown and the lack of transportation infrastructure. Downtown, on the other hand, doesn’t suffer either of those problems. Downtown’s biggest problem is the lack of a ready-made site. Melnyk’s potential plan would fall somewhere between the two: ample space, good transit links and location near Highway 417, but also not near the city’s major tourist hub. These are the factors that need to be considered by the city, and by narrowing the potential sites to just one, Watson is effectively neutering this discussion.


Considering the what-ifs of Ottawa baseball


he future of minor league baseball in Ottawa is connected to series of what-ifs. What if the stadium had been built on LeBreton Flats where, heaven knows, there’s still lots of room for it? More recently, what if someone had thought about baseball when Lansdowne Park was being redesigned? And most importantly, what if the city hadn’t allowed the stadium parking lot on Coventry Road to become hotels? Sure, there are other questions. One of them is whether baseball, as a spectator sport, has simply had its day. When the Ottawa Lynx thrived in the mid-‘90s, baseball was not only popular but trendy. The Lynx Stadium was the place to be seen and frequently sold out. Not many years later, only die-hard ball fans could be found there. How many of those are left and are they being replaced? Obviously, there are people who think so, and bless them. There is hardly a day goes by that someone isn’t talking about moving one Double-A franchise or another into the stadium, so someone must have confidence that the game can return to its former level of glory in this city. If not glory, at least enough people in the

Kanata Kourier-Standard #OLONNADE2OAD .ORTH /TTAWA 5NIT /.+%,


CHARLES GORDON Funny Town stadium to fill a good-sized parking lot. Which brings us back to the most important what-if. There have been various attempts to bring baseball back since the Lynx left town to become the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in 2007. All ran into the same problem that plagued the Lynx in their last days: not enough parking. The kind of beautiful Sunday afternoon that would bring capacity crowds to the stadium would find many potential members of those capacity crowds vainly searching for a place to put their cars. Too many gave up. It’s not a problem easily solved. It would be unfair to allow nearby residential areas to be overrun with cars. Given the amount of space left on the original parking lot side, underground parking or the construction of Published weekly by:


a parking garage would seem to be the only ways to solve the problem. Both are expensive, and risky, considering that no one really knows if baseball will attract the desired number of fans. Ultimately, the what-if game is pointless, since previous mistakes can’t be unmade. For whatever reasons, the stadium is in a bad location and doesn’t have enough parking. The city can’t remove the hotels. Writing the stadium off and moving baseball to another location would be hard to take after the amount of money that has been spent. But ... what if the stadium were at LeBreton Flats, with lots of space for parking, lots of public transit, close to downtown restaurants and bars? Someone actually did think of that back in the day, but the National Capital Commission said no. Surprise, surprise. Or, what if a new stadium was built in conjunction with a new casino? That would certainly put lots of tourists in the vicinity and some of them might be willing to desert their slot machines for a couple of hours to watch a ball game. But that’s a no-go too: the association, physical and otherwise, of baseball and gambling has been rightly frowned upon for years.

What if baseball had been included in the Lansdowne redevelopment plan? That would put the ballpark within walking distance of a substantial number of fans. And those fans would have places to walk to after the game. The problem there is that Lansdowne is tied to football and football stadiums do not lend themselves to baseball, either for the fans or the players. Anyone who has ever seen a baseball game at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto can vouch for that. Oddly, optimism persists in some quarters. It would be nice to think that it is justified. Baseball will never dominate the life of this city, but its lack has certainly been felt.

Caring approach to discipline



BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse everyone in the house to help. I’d like you to unload the dishwasher so I can focus on making you supper before your soccer game. Otherwise, it’s going to be very difficult for all of us to do what we want to do, which is get to soccer.” You see how that works? You give the kid some justification for your actions and when he realizes how loving and caring his parents are, he kind of feels bad and recognizes his own selfishness. The “We Care” approach can also be effective when you’re responding to something negative. Let’s say, hypothetically, your son happens to kick a plush soccer ball at his baby sister’s head. He knows he’s in trouble, so he goes into pre-emptive strike mode, throwing a tantrum about how the baby is always in the way of his game. Instead of “freaking out,” which, to be honest, is my instinctive reaction, the “We Care” approach demands I say, “I’d like you to comfort your sister and think about a better place to play with the ball. I care about both of you. I really want you to be active and have fun, but I need your baby sister to be safe. It’s a lot more fun if you play in the basement, where there’s no baby.” The “We Care” approach may sound simple, but it demands a lot from the parents. You have to be present. You have to be reflec-

tive. Mostly, you have to resist the urge to scream your head off, demand the child leave the room, and deliver empty threats or punishments. A tall order. But it really is great. And your kids will come to respect you more for it, especially because the “We Care” approach can be surprising to them. My son was so used to mom saying no, for example, that he was illprepared for my response when he refused to empty the dishwasher for the third day in a row. “Go ahead,” I said. “Ask me if I’m going to

rearrange your dentist appointment so you can go on your year-end school trip? Ask me if I’ll pay $15 out of my own money so you can go?” “You’ll say no,” my son shouted, “because I won’t do the dishwasher!” “Just ask me!” “Will you rearrange my dentist appointment and pay $15 so I can go on my year-end school trip?” “Yes,” I shouted, “because I care about you and you’ve worked hard at school this year and I think it’s important for you to have fun with your friends and celebrate.” “Okay, mom,” he said, “I’ll unload the dishwasher.” And that my friends, is the “We Care” approach to parenting at its best.

ne of my children is going through a “no” phase lately. The daily Q&A goes a little something like this: Mom says, “Could you unload the dishwasher?” Son says, “No.” Mom says, “Get your pyjamas on; it’s time for bed.” Son says, “No.” For a while I thought the best way to get him out of the “no” phase was to say “no” myself more often. Son says, “Mom, can I have a birthday party?” Mom says, “No.” Son says, “Can I bring my soccer ball to school?” Mom says, “No.” But after a few weeks of mom-in-the-negative, things started to get really out of hand. Instead of just a defiant “no,” my son was getting into full-scale, raging temper tantrums. I spent a lot of time thinking about what to do. My husband and I would talk about our frustrations. But mostly, we were coming up empty. It wasn’t until I remembered the “We Care” approach to parenting, advocated by my aunt and uncle, that I came up with an answer. The “We Care” approach grounds every disciplinary action into a caring act. It’s not easy, but when you’re forced, as a parent, to think about being caring rather than angry, it can make the difference between a defiant child throwing a tantrum or one who storms off to consider his actions in silence. The latter, of course, is preferable. It goes something like this. Mom says, “Unload the dishwasher, please.” Son says, “No.” Mom says, “It’s important for

Kanata volunteers offering Threads of Love Free clothing bank to host first event June 22

“Our finances were really tight,” said Larson, mother to Micah and Abby. The moms came through for Larson and her family, donating various items and clothing for her children. “It kind of just planted a seed,” she said.

Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Residents in Kanata and Stittsville have started a free clothing bank for people experiencing hardships. The first event will take place on June 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Community Life Church, 2 Beaverbrook Rd., and will feature clothing for newborns to adults. Glen Cairn resident Meggan Larson came up with the idea after a group of local moms helped her during her family’s time of need. She was diagnosed with gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, a rare and aggressive form of cancer, last February, just a few months after giving birth to her second child. “Last year, when I was sick, I had completely forgotten to get an entire size for my son,” she said. During her battle with cancer, Larson, who was self-employed and had no health insurance, had to take time off from her work for treatments.


Larson called various shelters but was told they only take a certain type of clothing, such as women’s wear and baby garments, she said. “What about all those people who have older kids?” said Larson. She contacted the city and was told there was nothing available for what she had in mind. So now, Larson, her husband Rob, and a group of 70 volunteers have been collecting clothing and shoes for Threads of Love, a free clothing bank. Items will be available for every age category to help those experiencing hardships such as layoffs and illnesses. “The community has blown me away with their generosity,” she said about how quickly people signed up to help and the amount of donations pouring in. “People seemed relieved; they were happy they had another place … to give clothing to.”


Glen Cairn resident Meggan Larson came up with the idea for a free clothing bank after a group of local moms helped her when she was going through cancer treatments and needed items for her children. Threads of Love will feature clothing for every age category to help others in need. Larson also puts together Christmas hampers during the holidays. She’s pictured here with last year’s hampers. The group is still collecting donations and are most in need of clothing for teenagers, as well as tables that can be used on the day of the event. For details or to donate, email or look up Threads of Love (Kanata

Clothing Cupboard) on Facebook. Larson said she’s hoping to host another free clothing event before the end of the year, and any items that aren’t picked up will be donated to the Christmas hampers the Larsons deliver every holiday season.

Faith plays a big role in the Larsons’ life but the clothing bank is open for everyone. “We’re doing it in Jesus’ name,” said Larson. “The point is, it’s what He told us to do … If our neighbours are in need, we need to help them.”

Fab five set for successful cycling fundraiser Hospital hopes to ramp up registration in week leading up to event Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Nancy Penk, one of the five women chosen by the Queensway Carleton Hospital to participate in the Wheels for Wellness fundraiser, said she is surprised by how much she enjoyed training for the 50-kilometre bike ride in the city’s west end. The hospital partnered with Share the Road Cycling Coalition and GranFondo Canada for the event, which will hopefully become an annual fundraiser for the hospital’s new, five-year, $40-million Better Tools for Better Care fundraiser campaign. “The funds will go towards outfitting the new expansion with equipment,” said Karalee Bowles, who

works with the hospital’s charitable foundation. The event was announced in January and five women were chosen a month later to participate in the 050 challenge – which offered training and nutritional support to help them complete the 50-km ride. Penk, a 57-year-old financial planner who lives in Perth, said the group started training in March, but weren’t able to get on the road until the beginning of May. The women were trained by hospital foundation volunteer Jim Brockbank. He took the group out twice a week to practice things like staying in formation and sharing the road with vehicles. Penk, who has to drive in from Perth for the 7:30 a.m. weekend practices, said she was surprised she was able to stick to it. She said she didn’t really exercise much and when she visited the doctor, her tests came back OK. “But I didn’t want to wait too late, or for there to be a problem before I started to get healthy,” she said. Aside from the physical training, the participants had to work on their

diet. Jennifer Camirand, from Be Well Nutrition, offered nutritional support in the form of counselling, meal plans and grocery shopping tips. “It was a bit of an adjustment,” Penk said. The team was chosen through the Women Leading Care Network, which brings together women leaders in the community to discuss healthcare issues. Each member of the team was to raise $750 for the fundraiser. The festivities will kick off with a Family FunDo, sponsored by Great Wolfe Lodge and Farm Boy on June 14. The barbecue will be on the hospital’s Baseline Road campus. Aside from food, there will be face painting and a performance by the Junkyard Symphony. The next day, participants will cycling along a 50 or 105-kilometre route in the west of the city. Bowles said the longer bike ride will take cyclists as far as Almonte before heading back to the hospital campus. To learn more about the fundraiser visit the website at

Reasons for kids to play video games EMC news - It’s easy to think that the time your kids spend playing video games is time wasted, but a closer look at the skills your child is learning might prove that thought wrong. Here are two reasons why your kids will benefit from being gamers: • Video games teach problem solving and decision making. Gaming isn’t a mindless activity

– it’s the opposite. Video games get kids to think and require constant input from the player. Instead of passively absorbing information from a TV show or movie, your child is actively engaged in logical thinking and decision making. They’re also learning to set goals and execute plans. • Video games are social.

Years ago gaming was a solitary activity, but due to the Internet, gamers can now play and create together. For example, games like LittleBigPlanet 2 encourage players to create their own levels to share and play with other gamers around the world. News Canada

Strawberry honey lassi a health, refreshing drink


Palliative Care Volunteer Training

EMC lifestyle - A creamy refreshing, cleansing drink that is a version of the Indian yogurt and fruit drink, called lassi. It can be a nice finish to a spicy hot meal or an interesting drink idea if serving a slightly spicy meal. A lassi is of great importance in the Indian diet, because it contains fat, protein, lactose, calcium and phosphorus. It has been said in Indian literature that regular consumption of lassi drinks reduces the chances of your hair going white before it is time. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Serves: six. Makes 1.5 litres (six cups).

Information sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings in June and August

The course will be held on four Saturdays: September 7, 14, 28 and October 5, 2013 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Arrival of an ice box was like Christmas time


ntil that fateful day in the middle of summer, Mother had no choice but to keep the perishables on a swinging shelf in the dug-out under the house. It was a dank and frightening place and could only be entered from the outside. There was no trap-door in the kitchen like Aunt Bertha had on the next farm, only two big doors tilted against the house that had to be lifted to gain entry. It was a place I hated with a passion and Mother too never quite got used to putting butter and milk on the swinging shelf. Blocks of ice were put in big tubs down in the dugout in the hope that what Mother put down there would be kept chilled enough that we all wouldn’t die from food poisoning. Of course when the ice melted, the big tubs had to be hauled up and emptied, a job for my big strapping brothers. But it was Grandfather who changed all that one day when he came out from Ottawa and ordered Father to hitch up the wagon and head into Renfrew. Of course, Grandfather had no intention of riding all the way into Renfrew sitting on a rickety seat on a wagon. He drove ahead in his rumble seat car,

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories telling Father where to meet him. Everett went with Father to help. The purpose of his trip into town was to buy Mother a brand new Barnett ice box. “Uncivilized! That’s what it is!” he said time and again on his regular visits to the farm and when one of us kids was sent down into the dug-out to bring up milk or butter or anything else that Mother hoped would keep fresh long enough so that we could eat it. We always had had an ice house and it was always full of blocks of ice, but never until that wonderful day, did we have an ice box to put the blocks in. Mother spent the entire morning trying to come up with a decent place to put the ice box in the kitchen. It had to be well away from the Findlay Oval, of course, and it couldn’t sit in the window

looking out into the grape arbour -- that’s where the old pine table sat and where we had our meals. Finally, without even knowing what it would look like or what size it was, Mother decided it would go kitty-corner next to the little room off the kitchen that served as Mother and Father’s bedroom. So that place was scrubbed by Audrey, wiped dry, and newspapers laid out covering the entire corner. For reasons unknown to me at the time, Mother made all of us change from play clothes into our next-to-Sunday best – was it because we were getting an ice box or was it because Grandfather would be there for a visit? At any rate, we were spit-clean when Grandfather drove back into the yard and said the new ice box would be here as soon as Father could get back from Renfrew.

Mother, in a clean Dan River dress and a fresh white apron, sat on the back stoop waiting for its arrival, with Audrey and I perched on the pump stoop. Grandfather brought out a kitchen chair to the yard. He wouldn’t sit on anything that wasn’t spotlessly clean in case he got a mark on his white flannel pants. It was like we were waiting for the Queen to arrive. Then we saw the wagon round the corner at the far end of the lane and as it got closer we could see Everett standing with his arms wrapped around what looked like a casket standing on its end. Father pulled the wagon up close to the kitchen door. “My oh my,” Mother said, not even waiting until it was loaded off onto the ground, she leaned into the wagon and rubbed her hands all over the new ice box like it was made of gold. It took the three brothers and Father to lift it off the wagon, with Grandfather telling them to be careful and not scratch it. It was shiny wood, the colour of caramel candy, with silver handles, and I thought was grand enough that it could easily have sat in the parlour. Without even being told, Everett tore to the ice house, and using the big black iron tongs, hauled a

block of ice into the house. It was beastly hot in the kitchen with the Findlay Oval pumping out heat and I secretly wondered if the ice box would cool off the whole house. Emerson swung open the little door on the side, and Everett plopped in the block of ice. Audrey and I were sent down to the dugout for all the perishables and Mother arranged it all in the ice box like she was laying out blocks for a quilt. Grandfather had thought of everything. While in Renfrew he bought an exact duplicate of our white granite dish pan and he slid it under the ice box to catch the drip. We sat around the ice box on kitchen chairs, as if waiting for it to tell us something. It sure looked mighty nice in the corner and I could tell Mother was as proud as if someone had bought her a new car. What a change the new ice box brought to our old log house. Now we had it as well as a telephone, thanks to Uncle Lou. Emerson wondered what we had to do to get running water, and I longed for the day we could just push up a switch and a light would go on just like at my little friend Joyce’s house. Sadly, water from a tap and light from a bulb were not to be. Both would have to wait until the day we left the farm many years later. R0012156115

Katimavik Elementary School runs for fun Jessica Cunha

EMC sports - People run for different reasons: Katimavik Elementary School does it for fun. The school hosted its second-annual Run for Fun on June 6, and even though the weather didn’t co-operate, students, teachers and parents still enjoyed running. “It’s a fun community thing,” said teacher Stephane Bedard, Run for Fun organizer. The event began as a way to motivate the students and school community to get active, he added. “The reason is to find different ways,” said Bedard. “When you motivate them to do that, it’s great.” This year saw 45 students, 12 teachers and 12 parents take part in the run. Parent Teri MacDonald, who has two sons at Katimavik and one at Castlefrank Elementary School, took part in the event for the second year. “This changed my life forever,” she said, after running a five-kilometre personal best of 36 minutes. “This got me on a road to fitness … The whole focus on this was for fun.” Her eldest son, Alex, got the family involved last year. “Last year I saw the run and thought may-

be I should do it,” said the Grade 7 student, who ran the five-km in 26 minutes. “I’m very proud of my mom … I’m also proud of my brother.” Middle brother Nathan ran the three-kilometre, and youngest brother Ryan ran the last lap. The family trained together before this year’s run. Their father, David, was supposed to run but sprained his ankle and had to sit the event out. But he said he would run next year with his family. Teri said Bedard is a special teacher for having organized the event and leading training before and after school. “The feeling that you can do it (run fivekm) is so overwhelming,” she said. “It’s so spectacular.” Everybody who takes part received a medal for completing the run, and former students volunteer their time to help co-ordinate the day’s event.

EMC sports - Kanata gymnasts took home a haul of medals at the Ontario Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships held at the Etobicoke Olympium in Etobicoke, Ont. on June 7 to 9.

Sarah is planning on joining her older sister Laura, who also coaches for the club, but needs to wait until she is 16 and old enough to take a coaching course. Meanwhile, the gymnasts are preparing for the Canadian Gymnaestrada next summer in Calgary. MEDALISTS

Canada beats Fiji as fans treated to top-level rugby Brier Dodge

EMC sports - Fans packed Twin Elm Rugby Park on June 5 to see the Canadian rugby team take on Fiji. Rugby fans, and players competing in the high school boys provincial rugby championships, packed the stands to see the Pacific Cup match. And despite the massive size of the Fijian players, the Canadians pulled out a win in front of the hometown crowd, with a small 20-18 margin. Canadian team captain Phil Mack said the defence had to be prepared for Fiji to score from any point in the field because of their explosive power. But at the end of the day, the Canadians were more organized as a team on the field, prompting Fiji head coach Inoke Male to say his team needed to be more prepared next time. “We knew Fiji was going to play a wide open game and we needed to get our defence right to beat them,” Mack said. “We’ve done a lot of work as a team ... it paid off.” Rugby clubs in Ottawa had offered discount and group rugby tickets to their players, who were vocal throughout the game, leaving no doubt which was the home team. “When we really get tired out there and the crowd amps it, it just really gives us that extra boost,” Mack said.

“It’s something in Canada we’re not really used to.” It was the first time ever that Canada had beat Fiji at home. Rugby fans were happy to see Ottawa included on a stop, as it’s not often they get to see this level of 15A-side rugby. The Barrhaven Scottish RFC has their 10 and under players do a rugby demonstration game at halftime. The under-10 players use flags like flag football instead of tackling. Carleton University player Mandy Musse said that games of this level help promote the sport in Ottawa and make people ask questions about both the rules, and how to get involved. “It’s amazing. I think it attracts people to the sport and creates a big buzz for Ottawa. It helps a lot,” said Musse, who also plays club level rugby in Ottawa. Prior to the game, the family of late Barrhaven Scottish player Rowan Stringer was welcomed. A moment of silence was held for the John McCrae teen, who died this spring following a head injury sustained in a rugby game. Minister of Sport Bal Gosal and Rugby Canada officials presented the Stringer family with a signed Canada jersey. The Canadian team were scheduled to play their next games in Kingston BRIER DODGE/METROLAND and Ireland. Canada defeated Fiji 20-18 during a match held at Twin Elm Rugby Park in Nepean on June 5.

Habitat homeownership improves family health EMC news - New research shows that affordable Habitat for Humanity homeownership contributes to families becoming happier and healthier, and enjoying improvements in their children’s wellbeing and school performance. The research, led and funded by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, shows that of the families surveyed, 86 per cent report being happier since moving into their Habitat home and 89 per cent said their family life had improved. For this study, 326 Canadian families who have received their Habitat homes since 2000 were surveyed on changes to their health, social and financial dynamics. “Habitat for Humanity saved us,” said Cory Mennear, a Habitat partner commenting on the findings of the study Mennear’s child experienced complications during respiratory surgery because of damage caused by mould in their previous home. “It was heartbreaking as a parent to watch your children’s health and wellbeing suffer because you can’t af-

ford a better home, but now we’ve left those worries behind and are able to focus on our futures,” Mennear said. “Cramped quarters, unhealthy environments, unsafe neighbourhoods – low-income Canadian families often face challenges in obtaining housing that meets their needs ,” said Kevin Marshman, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada. “The families who partner with Habitat are able to remove themselves from these difficult situations, build equity for their futures and begin living healthier, happier and more productive lives.” A leading advocate of affordable homeownership in Canada, Habitat for Humanity Canada worked with CMHC on this research to quantify the benefits and outcomes of their homeownership model on the families that partner through their program. Habitat’s model provides “a hand up, not a hand out,” with low-income families paying the full fair market value of their home through a no-interest, no down payment mortgage that is geared to their income.

34 Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

EMC news - Ottawa Senators defenceman Chris Phillips and his wife Erin will host a fundraiser for a new recreation complex in north Kanata on June 24. The event will be hosted at the Big Rig Brewery, located at 2750 A Iris St. starting at 5:30 p.m. It costs $600 per couple to attend the event, which includes permanent recognition on the Richcraft Recreation Complex’s Community Legacy Walkway as well as a $500 tax-deductible receipt. The event includes a silent auction. The recreation complex, located on Innovation Drive in the Kanata North Business Park near Goulbourn Forced Road, is now well under construction and slated to open this fall. This state of the art recreation complex, serving residents of north Kanata and West Carleton, will house an eight-lane 25-metre swimming pool, two gymnasiums, a fitness centre, a community room, outdoor skateboard park, basketball fields and a lighted artificial turf soccer pitch amongst others. The complex is being built to LEEDS gold certification standards for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Following extensive public consultation with the community, the city agreed to proceed with construction of the facility on the basis that funding for a number of requested upgrades worth an additional cost of $1.75 million would be raised through donations from the community. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson has been leading the charge on raising the $1.75 million from the community. “Our vision for this much needed facility is to ensure that the integration of living, working and playing in this community that attracts and retains residents and businesses alike, continues to evolve with the changing needs of the community,” she said. “The new recreation complex will be an integral part of our community’s health and well being”. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-

Chantiry said, “The site for the new recreation complex was chosen in part for its accessibility to rural residents. As more residents choose to enjoy a rural lifestyle, and businesses expand westward, the proximity of this facility will help to ensure participation by all west end residents in the fabric of our community”. Working with Wilkinson, a committee of community volunteers chaired by Paul Taggart, president of Taggart Realty Management, has been meeting regularly and is leading this fundraising opportunity. “I am very honoured to have the opportunity to give back to this community by helping to raise funds for this wonderful new facility,” he said. Chris and Erin Phillips, owners of the Big Rig Brewery know the importance of a facility like this to the community. “An active lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle for all members of the family. An easily accessible family recreation centre that meets the activity and fitness needs of all ages is vital to any community. We fully support the establishment of the new Kanata north recreation complex and we are delighted that Marianne and Eli have chosen the Big Rig Brewery to engage community support for this very worthwhile initiative.” And what better way to support our new facility than to have your family name or business name permanently visible for years to come? Everyone participating in the June 24 fundraiser at the Big Rig Brewery will have their family or business name permanently engraved on the Community Legacy Walkway leading up to the front entrance of the facility. Not able to attend the event? You can still support the new facility directly and have your name on the Community Legacy Walkway. For details of the fundraising event at the Big Rig Brewery on June 24, or to donate directly, you can visit the Kanata north recreation complex website at fundraising/big-rig-event or contact Wilkinson at 613-580-2474.

EMC news - Trinity Presbyterian Church will hold its last service at its Katimavik location on June 22. On May 24, 1981, the people of Trinity Presbyterian Church, Kanata celebrated their very first service of worship in their brand new building at 110 McCurdy Dr. in Katimavik. Rev. Ralph Kendall was then the minister. Now, 32 years later, this faith community is on the move again. As of June 28, the property of 110 McCurdy Drive will belong to Hospice Care Ottawa. The Trinity Presbyterian Church community has been warmly welcomed by Kanata Christian Reformed Church on Castlefrank, where they will worship until their new home at 1817 Richardson Side Road is ready. There has been wonderful support among the area churches, looking for ways to help Trinity out during their time without a building. When the Christian Reformed Church was forming as a congregation and needing a place to worship, Trinity Presbyterian shared their worship space with them for 11 years. Now they are returning the favour. It is hoped that by Easter, Trinity Presbyterians’ new home will be up and running. Although they are leaving the beautiful property at 110 McCurdy, they intend to continue a relationship with Hospice Care Ottawa, and to support that important ministry. On Saturday, June 22, Trinity Presbyterian will enjoy a celebration dinner at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road, and the following day their very last service of worship will be held at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. in their beloved sanctuary on the corner of McCurdy and Maple Grove. The hope is that, they have left a legacy in Katimavik, of being good neighbours, supportive of community needs, welcoming and hospitable to all. Members of the church are cordially invited to come and worship with them as they say farewell to a place that has been very special to them and many more for the past 32 years.

King Triton, played by Christian Garnon-Williams, prepares to hand over his trident of power to Sea Witch Ursula, played by Cassie Harrison, during rehersals for the KT Kids production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.

EMC entertainment - The Kanata Theatre KT Kids production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr. played to three sold-out crowds on June 7 and 8. Kathryn Dever celebrated her fifth birthday by going to see the play on opening night at the Ron Maslin Playhouse with her sister Emily-Grace, friend Kathryn Rose Mayor and her parents. “I liked all of it!” said Kathryn Rose, while everyone agreed they had a great time. The three girls had a chance to meet some of the cast, including Sebastian, played by Katimavik’s Emma Clarke. “I think it was really great,” said Clarke after the final curtain. She studied up for the role of Sebastian, the Caribbean crab, by watching the movie nine times and working hard during the six-months of rehearsal. Clarke said she was a nervous before getting up on stage during opening night. “But you deliver that first line and you just slip into it.” The audience clapped, laughed and sang along to the songs made popular in the original movie, released in 1989, and based on the original fairytale by Hans Christian Anderson. Andrew Williams directed The Little Mermaid Jr. while 36 youths made up the cast of characters, which included Abbey Flockton as Ariel and David Francis as Prince Eric. Up next for KT Kids is a December production of Yo, Vikings! adapted from Judith Byron Schachner’s book of the same name, which follows the adventures of 10year-old Emma Katz.

Belle guitar signed by Trooper to benefit local youth centre Only 1,500 raffle tickets available Jessica Cunha

EMC news - One lucky winner will walk away on Canada Day with a guitar signed by the members of Canadian rock band Trooper. The guitar will be raffled off at the Canada Day in Kanata festival at Walter Baker Park on July 1. Dominic’s Music in Kanata donated the Belle guitar, valued at $1,000 and sold in store for $650, to help raise funds for the Kanata Haven Youth Centre’s music program. “Proceeds from the raffle help purchase new instruments, provides regular maintenance on the ones we have, and allows us to give the volunteer music teachers a small token of our appreciation at the end of each year,” said Diane McNulty, director of the Haven, and program director and stage manager for Canada Day in Kanata. “It also allows us to cover simple administration costs associated with the music program, such as printing, sheet music, notebooks.” It goes beyond the musical component; it exposes youth to dedication, practice and working with others, McNulty said.

“The music program is important because it provides interested youth with the knowledge, tools and encouragement to explore their creative side and express themselves musically,” she said. “There is no cost to the youth, and we even provide youth with instruments to take home whenever possible. In addition, we also explore other aspects of the creative process such as live shows, video and recording.” BELLE

The Belle guitar, crafted by Wicked Instruments Inc., features a maple body and neck, spruce top, nickel hardware, two-tone pearl neck inlays and rosewood bridge and fingerboard. “We want to give them functional art,” said Mike Sherren, general manager at Domenic’s Music. This is the third year Dominic’s has provided a guitar for the raffle. Tickets are $2 a piece and only 1,500 raffle tickets are available. Last year, the raffle raised more than $1,500 for the Haven’s music program. The year before, $1,400 was raised to help the music program get off the ground, with the money purchasing instruments. Tickets are available at Domenic’s Music, 444 Hazeldean Rd., on site at the Canada Day in Kanata event, or from any member of the Kanata Haven Youth Centre.






Mike Sherren, general manager at Domenic’s Music, poses with the Belle guitar, which will be signed by Canadian rock band Trooper and raffled off at the Canada Day in Kanata event on July 1 at Walter Baker Park. The funds raised will go toward the free music program offered at the Kanata Haven Youth Centre.

Neil Young, Patti Smith to open Folk Festival Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Neil Young and Crazy Horse will rock the opening night of the Folk Festival on Sept. 4. The festival’s executive programming director Mark Monahan announced the lineup of the 20th edition of the event on June 11. Monahan said organizers added a day on the fourth because they landed the Canadian rocker for opening night. In the three years Monahan has overseen the event, he said he has seen the audience grow in numbers. It has also become more diverse and younger. Part of the reason for that, he said, was subsidized student passes available at the city’s two universities and Algonquin College. “We already have agreements with the University of Ottawa and Algonquin,� Monahan said. “We are just finalizing with Carleton.� Acts like Vampire Weekend, Amos the Transparent, The Sheepdogs and the Carolina Chocolate Drops are also aimed at bringing in a younger

crowd. Names like Neil Young, Pattie Smith and Emmylou Harris help the festival stick to its folk roots. The five-day event will kick off at Hog’s Back on Sept. 4 and close on Sept. 8 – a little bit later than its been held in the past, but Monahan said he isn’t worried about the weather. “One of the rainiest festivals was when it was held in the third week of August,� he said. “Obviously you run a risk when its an outdoor festival but we had a look at the forecast and things are pretty similar weather-wise in the first couple of weeks in September.� Monahan added the new timing will coincide with orientation at the universities, ensuring students will be in town to enjoy the festivities. Passes went on sale June 12 at 10 a.m. for the early bird price of $128.50 for a five-day, adult transferrable wristband. Youth wristbands are nontransferrable and cost $99. The early bird price ends on June 14 at midnight, at which point adult wristbands are $148.50 and youth ones are $119.

Small west-end club becoming concert hotspot Pat Travers Band, Quiet Riot latest bands set to hit stage at Brass Monkey

EMC news - Sitting at the scarred bar of the Brass Monkey on Greenbank Road in his Frank Zappa T-shirt, planning their next show, Pat Beauchamp admitted he has come a long way from the boardrooms where he used to work. Beauchamp, who did public opinion research for the federal government, took over the bar with his brother in October 2010. Brian, a lawyer, had worked with the Justice Department before opening the Orange Monkey in Centretown a few years earlier. When the brothers first bought what is now the Brass Monkey, it has been a Broken Cue for 25 years. The previous owners – who also own Tailgators on Merivale Road – took the majority of the pool leagues with them in the move. “When we first opened we didn’t do much, we just wanted to see what we had,” Pat said. But with 10-person crowds on a Friday night, something had to be done. With a small stage, the brothers got to work looking for live music. It took a while to come up with a formula that worked. “At first we started out with classic rock tribute bands, but that was expensive,” Pat said, adding it only brings in a certain kind of crowd. They even tried Karaoke, but with bus routes that end at midnight, their crowd was limited. After a while, they started to take advantage of the local music scene. “There are so many bands here that want to play,” Pat said. “It was a much better arrangement to have them play for the door (cover charge). Then they draw their own crowd.” The club has already seen the likes of rocker bands like

Anvil and Helix, and has a regular roster of great tribute bands like mAlice and Monsters – an Alice Cooper tribute and Great Scott which plays AC/DC. Local acts like the Maria Hawkins Band also get stage time. On Thursday nights, there’s an open mic night for bands that jam together but haven’t had too many gigs. “We have had some bands form from doing open mic,” Pat said. “It’s a chance to see what it’s like for the band to get on stage together.” Pat said he loves working with emerging bands, and is amazed at the love of music. “Some guys come all the

A lot of people will look at the band and say, ‘Gee, Quiet Riot is playing little clubs like the Brass Monkey now?’ and think that’s a comment on the band. But it’s that we are willing to pay them properly.

way from Toronto to play for a few hundred bucks, some Big Macs and some drinks,” Pat said. “And they’re good.” It’s a mutual respect that keeps the bands coming back, Pat said, and everyone’s happy. He’s making that philosophy work with higher profile bands like Quiet Riot and the Pat Travers Band – set to take the stage on June 28 and 29 respectively. “We want the bar to eventually be the kind of place where people go to just see what’s on,” Pat said. “So you have to get the bigger acts in here to draw attention to the club.” It costs to get the bands out, but it’s worth it,” he said. “A lot of people will look at the band and say, ‘Gee, Quiet Riot is playing little clubs like the Brass Monkey now?’ and think that’s a comment on the band,” Pat said. “But it’s that

Despite the hard work, the risk of bringing in higher profile acts seems to be working – as the brothers have a couple of surprises for the rest of the summer. Acts are already asking to book as far away as Halloween. With a big space and high rent, the brothers want to turn the pool hall into a go-to music venue in the city’s west end. “Once you’re down here, you could be anywhere; this could be a club in New York,” Pat said. “And we want to take advantage of that.” Quiet Riot takes the stage on June 28, with tickets are $40. The Pat Travers Band will be on the next night for $25. Tickets for both shows are available at the Brass Monkey (250 Greenbank Rd.) or at Vertigo Records on Rideau Street or online at

we are willing to pay them properly.” The big shows have to sell out for the owners to recoup their costs, because it’s not just about paying the band, it’s about the extra equipment, ground transportation, hotels and the hospitality rider. Pat recounted a story of a band that sent their hospitality rider – a kind of list of accessories the band would like to have, including drinks and other supplies – the group asked for socks. “So we got them socks, and they were blown away. I guess no one had ever went out and got that before,” Pat said, adding his lack of experience in the music business is sometimes a plus. “The list said socks so I went out and got them,” he said.

Y Kids Academy celebrates latest graduating class EMC news - Children from across the Ottawa-region are living healthier, more active lives thanks to a new program offered by the YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region. The Y held a graduation ceremony on June 8 for children who successfully completed its Y Kids Academy, a free program that offers Grade 6 students instruction on nutrition and physical fitness. Saturday’s graduation ceremony was held at the Bonnenfant Y Outdoor Education and Leadership Centre in Dunrobin. Family and friends gathered to celebrate the graduates’ achievements and share in an afternoon of fun, physical activities. All attendees had access to outdoor centre’s grounds, which include a high ropes course, a basketball court and a rock wall. A healthy lunch was provided. Many graduates praised the Y Kids Academy for inspiring them to get fit and active. “It’s a really fun program,” says 11-year-old Evan Helmer of Farley Mowat Public School in Nepean. “It taught us how to live

healthier and how to properly use the gym equipment.” Other grads told of discovering a passion for new activities like swimming and running; many also use their newfound knowledge of nutrition to read food labels and suggest healthier food choices to their families. Following the graduation ceremony, all graduates of the Y Kids Academy received a free one-year membership to the Y to help them pursue their new health and fitness goals. “The Y Kids Academy is a fun and unique way to get children active,” said Tosha Rhodenizer, vice president, health, wellness and family engagement with the YMCAYWCA of the National Capital Region. “It gives them the tools to make healthy choices, but also the inspiration to set goals and achieve them.” The best part, adds Rhodenizer, is that the program is free. “No matter what your family income, your child can benefit from this program and get active at your local Y.” To learn more about the Y Kids Academy, visit

City wants NCC to respond to bridge concerns East-end councillors curious about truck tunnel instead of interprovincial crossing Laura Mueller

EMC news - The idea of a new interprovincial bridge at Kettle Island took another beating during a city meeting on June 5. Around 20 residents, as well as a representative from the Montfort Hospital, lined up to tell city councillors why they think the bridge to Quebec is a bad idea. Adding commuter traffic into the Manor Park area would be dangerous and destroy those neighbourhoods, most of the speakers argued. Alain-Michel Sekula, board chairman for the Montfort Hospital, said a bridge would cause trouble for patients if it created traffic snarls on the Aviation Parkway, which ambulances used to get to the hospital. Putting thousands of cars and trucks within 10 metres of a high-caliber health facility “doesn’t hold water,” Sekula said. An expansion of the hospital in 2010 was designed to facilitate easier access to the parkway from the hospital. The proposed bridge would connect the Rockcliffe and Aviation parkways on the Ottawa side to Montée Paiement in Gatineau. In each direction it would have two lanes for traffic, one dedicated bus lane and a multi-use path for cyclists and pedestrians. Lori Assheton-Smith of the Rockcliffe Park community association said a new bridge would be a detriment, no matter where it is located. “It doesn’t make sense for any neighbourhood in Ottawa, from an economic, transportation or public policy perspective,” she told the committee. Sheilagh McLean, who said she lives south of Manor Park, said the idea to build a new bridge is a “historical” idea that doesn’t make sense in the current reality. “If I thought it was a good idea for the city, I would certainly support it, even if it meant some disadvantages for me as a person living in the general area,” she said. Transportation committee chairman Coun. Keith Egli assured everyone that the committee vote was simply to accept the information update – not to support a bridge location. Andra Waterfield agreed.

She said the “1950s and 1960s thinking” behind the bridge will “destroy lives.” “We’re not having a vote on yes or no to this particular proposal,” Egli said. In addition to accepting the information, the transportation committee also voted to invite the NCC and RocheGenivar back to city hall in the fall with specific information on how the bridge’s design “responds to community interests and concerns,” particularly regarding the number of lanes on the bridge, tunneling options, impacts on green space, impact on city infrastructure such as roads, transit connectivity and truck routes. Not everyone was opposed to the bridge. Residents of Lowertown, like Bill Campbell, support a new bridge because the city could designate it as a new route for heavy trucks and get transport trucks out of their neighbourhood. “Ottawa needs this bridge now,” he said. The Dalhousie Community Association also added its voice to the ranks of those who support a Kettle Island bridge. In a letter to the transportation committee, the group’s president, Michael Powell, wrote that the association supports any efforts to remove truck traffic from the downtown core. But he added that in order for that to happen, the city must remove King Edward Avenue and Booth Street as truck routes. “The truck problem is dire and needs an urgent solution – but this isn’t it,” AsshetonSmith said during her presentation, adding that trucks will continue to use the shortest route, even if there is another option. TUNNEL PIQUES INTEREST

A couple of east-end councillors wondered if the idea of building a tunnel for transport trucks under the city’s downtown core should be revisited instead of looking at a new bridge.


Approximately 20 residents – most in opposition – came to city hall on June 5 to speak about an interprovincial bridge route at Kettle Island, shown here, which is being proposed as part of a National Capital Commission-led project. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess called the tunnel option the “elephant in the room” that was dismissed long ago, but might now prove to be a better option. While a tunnel was deemed to be too pricey of an option and was therefore excluded from the study, the projected cost of the bridge has gone up considerably to an estimated $1.6 billion. Funding has not been approved. On the other hand, Bloess said a very rough estimate to dig a tunnel was around half a billion dollars. “In light of a massive discrepancy in the cost of tunnel and bridge … Does this not sort of give you cause to say we need to go back and look at the tunnel option or at least compare it to what we have today?” Bloess said. Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney also spoke in support of investigating a tunnel. A representative from the NCC said the cost would assuredly be much higher when technical details and require-


ments are factored in, not to mention the cost of digging a deeper tunnel under the forthcoming subterranean light-rail line. At a recent public consulta-

tion, lead consultant Eric Peissel from Roche-Genivar Joint Venture and the NCC’s Fred Gaspère say a tunnel is not a viable option. “At its core, a tunnel would

only serve one purpose,” Gaspère said. “The purpose is for a long-term transportation strategy.” With files from Michelle Nash

Rideau Canal footbridge could face delay Resident submits complaint to ministry about blocked views Laura Mueller

EMC news - The progress of a proposed footbridge over the Rideau Canal is on hold after residents complained to the Ministry of Environment that it will block their view. The ministry is reviewing a request to complete a more detailed and rigorous environmental assessment for the proposed pedestrian and cycling bridge that would traverse the canal from Clegg Avenue in Old Ottawa East to Fifth Avenue in the Glebe, near Lansdowne Park. According to the city, the request for a Part II order, commonly known as a “bump-up” request, came from a member of the public who raised the issue of the “visual impacts of the east landing on views of the canal from an adjacent property.” It is unclear how long the project may be on hold while the ministry reviews the request, which was filed on March 15. The Ministry of Environment website states that reviews typically take between 30 and 66 days. At this newspaper’s publication date, it will have been 92 days since the request was filed. According to the ministry’s website, the minister could make one of four possible decisions: deny the request, deny the request and impose conditions, refer the issue to media-


This preliminary design for a proposed footbridge over the Rideau Canal prompted a member of the public to submit a request to the Ministry of the Environment for more detailed study of how the bridge could impact views of the canal. tion or require the city to complete the highest level of environmental assessment, an individual assessment. The city already conducted a Schedule C environmental assessment, which is the “most comprehensive” kind and one that is often used for complex projects that potentially have more environmental impacts, according to an email from city media relations staff attributed to the bridge’s project manager, transportation planner Colin Simpson. There wouldn’t be too much difference between the Schedule C environmental assessment that was

already completed and the slightly more rigorous individual environmental assessment, according to the email. “The major differences lie in which governing body has the final approval authority, and prescribed approval timelines,” he states in the email from media relations staff. If the ministry approved the completion of an individual environmental assessment as a result of the bump-up request, the ministry would have to approve both a terms of reference document for the project, as well as the completed study (the cur-

rent study only needed approval from city council). “Since the (completed) study was quite comprehensive, we anticipate that we would only need to address issues identified by the (Ministry of the Environment) as they pertain to the approval of the bump-up,” states the email. “We would not be starting from scratch.” The ministry’s website states that request for a Part II order should be made only when there are outstanding significant environmental issues that cannot be resolved through the environmental assessment process,

discussions with the city or through mediation. “It should be noted that the disliking of or disagreement with a study outcome is not a sufficient reason for the ministry to grant a bump-up,” the email states. Detailed design work for the bridge could take about a year and couldn’t begin until the bump-up request and any additional resulting work are dealt with. Construction could take two years, according to Simpson. No funding for the bridge’s construction has yet been allocated.

EMC news - The city will present plans to turn Main Street into one of Ottawa’s first “complete streets” on June 17 and 18. The main artery in Old Ottawa East will be rebuilt in 2014 and 2015 and after working with the community and businesses, transportation engineers are recommending a design that calms traffic and balances the needs of pedestrians and cyclists with the needs of motorists. “A Main Street that is better for pedestrians and cyclists has been a critical consideration for community representatives on the Main renewal working group,” reads the notice sent out by the city. Old Ottawa East community association president John Dance said the proposed de-

sign is exciting for the community and the city should be commended for taking a “complete street” approach. “We want a livable street, one that is much better for pedestrians, cyclists, residents and businesses,” Dance wrote in an email. “What’s on the table will make it much better.” He said there has been some concern from people who represent the interests of the Oblate property – a former monastery and convent that is planned for commercial and residential redevelopment – that the proposed traffic changes would limit access to the large site. Residents are invited to see the plans for themselves at an open house on Monday, June 17 from 5 to 8 p.m. in St. Paul University’s Normandin Room at Laframbroise Hall, 249 Main St. A second open house will be held the next day, on Tuesday, June 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Greenboro Community Centre, 363 Lorry Greenberg Dr. in rooms A and B.

Councillor wants out-of-town toll on 174 Blais suggests electronic system similar to Highway 407 Laura Mueller

EMC news - Ottawa should charge out-of-town motorists for the privilege of driving on highway 174, says Coun. Stephen Blais. The Cumberland councillor is proposing the city look at making the municipally owned highway into a toll road, perhaps using an electronic toll system similar to Highway 407 in the Greater Toronto Area. People move to surrounding municipalities like Clarence-Rockland because homes are less expensive, Blais said, and then they commute west into the city for work. “Frankly, I don’t think it’s fair that Ottawa taxpayers continue to subsidize their use of the road,” Blais. “They shouldn’t consume our services for free.” Blais estimates that around 20 per cent of the vehicles on highway 174 in the morning come from outside the city’s boundaries. The number of vehicles moving through the highway 174/Highway 417 split on any given morning is around 9,200; 2,200 vehicles get on highway 174 in Clarence-Rockland each morning. “If you took those vehicles off, we wouldn’t need to widen the split,” Blais said. Highway 174 is an expensive road to maintain because of the volume of traffic it handles and the speed at


Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais wants out-of-town commuters from municipalities east of the city, like Clarence-Rockland, to pay a toll to help cover the cost of maintaining highway 174. which vehicles move. Aside from the bus Transitway, no other Ottawa road has as high a requirement for snowplowing, salting and pothole repair, Blais said. He couldn’t provide figures for the annual maintenance cost. The city is currently in the process of conducting an environmental assessment to investigate the possibility of widening the highway and the road’s “split” at Highway 417 is being widened this year. The toll would be justified because it is an “extremely rare circumstance”

for a municipality to have the responsibility of maintaining a highway, Blais said. Most highways are overseen by the province, with a couple exceptions, such as the 174 and the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway in Toronto. Since the province downloaded responsibility for highway 174 to the City of Ottawa in the 1990s, the city has requested several times that the province re-assume responsibility for the highway. “The province has no intention to

re-upload it,” Blais said. “That would be the best-case scenario, but I don’t believe it will happen.” To demonstrate the city is serious about this issue, Blais is working with city staff on the best way to approach the possibility of adding a toll to the highway. The councillor planned to bring a notice of motion to the next council meeting on June 12, or perhaps a direction for city staff to research the idea. Blais said the province would have

to enact a regulation to allow the city to exercise toll-taking authority that is granted in the Municipal Act. Clarence-Rockland Mayor Marcel Guibord did not respond to an interview request before deadline, but Blais said the mayor has indicated he is open to discussing options that would see residents from ClarenceRockland share the cost of maintaining or expanding highway 174. “There is an understanding in the municipalities east of the city that this is a problem,” Blais said.

EMC news - The city will bring some life to the Rink of Dreams “patio” with a series of events throughout the summer. From yoga to concerts, dance lessons to programs for kids, Marion Dewar Plaza on the Laurier Avenue side of city hall will come alive this summer. The plaza is now home to the outdoor winter rink, which becomes a large oval cement patio in the summer. That space remained largely unused during its first summer season since it was constructed in 2011, but the city has prepared an actionpacked schedule for the space this year. In a press release, Mayor Jim Watson said adding ongoing events and programs to the plaza will help bring more people to city hall – something he has been trying to promote in this term of council. The programming is free of charge and will run from July 9 to Aug. 27. No registration is required. The following programs will run through the summer:

EMC lifestyle - Walking into the first of Bob Mitchell’s several sprawling greenhouses, the sweet, earthy smell of ripening tomatoes takes over your senses. For a brief moment, it’s just you and the fruit. You’re filled with a sense of hominess, of nostalgia for your grandmother, or the proud memory of the first vegetable you ever nurtured. When you come back to reality, you start to look around and you can hardly believe your eyes. Row upon row of leafy tomato plants climb toward the soft, filtered light coming in from above. The greenhouse seems to stretch on forever. Little technology gets in the way of nature’s beauty; the stems grow from plasticsheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs and are clipped to small rods above. Small pipes wind along the floor, masked by green tangles of sagging vines. Every so often a bumblebee lazes by, off to pollinate another plant or return to one of the hives placed throughout the greenhouse. Mitchell, the owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses, on Doyle Road south of Manotick, somehow fits

into the greenhouse ecosystem, despite a brusque manner and a penchant for loud exclamations. The lifelong farmer moved to a dairy and cash crop farm south of Kenmore when he was six, which he farmed with his family until 1998. And then he entered a greenhouse for the first time in his life. “The smell, that was what hooked me,” he said. From that visit in September 1998, it took 11 months for Mitchell to buy the Doyle Road property, set up a greenhouse that covers a hectare, and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has 1.6 hectares of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. NATURE’S WAY

While SunTech certainly doesn’t profess to be organic or pesticide free, it makes use of what nature has to offer. A common greenhouse pest is the white fly, a tiny white bug that can multiply into the billions. As they drink the juices from the plants, they

excrete everywhere – and that can prevent the plants from getting the sunlight they need. But instead of spraying plants with chemicals, Mitchell brings in 40,000 encarsia formosa, a tiny parasitic wasp that lays its eggs in white fly eggs – essentially stopping the reproduction cycle. “You don’t pay them by the hour and they don’t miss,” Mitchell said. Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought in from Windsor, Ont., Mitchell’s bees are relied upon to pollinate the tomatoes. The number of bees loose in the greenhouse directly correlates to the number of open flowers, Mitchell said. There are usually two or three bee stings a year, he said, but as the chief bee handler he has managed to escape a sting for nearly 14 years. Of course, the whole point of a greenhouse is to get around Mother Nature’s whims, and SunTech employs a complex computer system to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures and adjust the roof vents accordingly. The average daily temperature inside is about 19 degrees, Mitchell said, and they can harvest about 10 months of the year.

Get ready to go zip-zip-zip lining


Florida, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are destinations for zip line enthusiasts. But you won’t have to travel that far for exhilarating zip line experiences, which are growing in popularity in North America. Ownership of Logos Land Resort, just outside Cobden, is hoping a significant investment in its new three-leg, zip line course will bring smiles and goose bumps to many more of its customers in coming years. Challenges Unlimited Inc. is completing construction and installation of a parallel zip line course over Astrolabe Lake this month. The course warms up nicely, with the first zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the final 401-metre leg returns buckled-in riders back above the water. The total ride is 3,100 feet, or almost one kilometre, at speeds of up to 35 km/h, usually six metres above the water, but sometimes closer to 25. Logos Land owner Jerrold Paxton’s business partner, Kevin Cahill, died last December, but not the dream to continue to improve on what Logos Land offers its customers. Facilities already in place include the water park, with its slide, splash pad, grill house, mini-golf, animal petting farm, beach and giant lake trampolines. There are also timeshare villas, motel suites, 90 recreational vehicle (RV) park and camp sites, rental RVs, 100 wilderness camp sites for trailers or tenters, and the neighbouring Oaks of Cobden golf course.

“We have four goals in mind,” says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The first goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. “We’ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,” says Glover. “But for older kids, as families grow up, you don’t want them to hit the boredom curve.” The same philosophy applies to younger adults. The connection of the zip line for these potential customers also happens to coincide with the ideal weight for zip line passengers. The weight allowance runs from 75 to about 275 pounds. The second marketing goal, says Glover, is to expand Logos Land’s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. “The zip line can be used year-round, but more practically it will certainly run in the summer, as well as in the spring and fall.” Logos Land has already experienced positives vibes about the new course. For example, response at the recent Ottawa RV Show, which attracts more than 20,000 visitors, was extremely positive. “Our big posters stopped them,” says Glover. “It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But we’ll see for sure this summer.” Glover acknowledges there’s another zip line, at Chutes Coulonge, while pointing out that Logos Land Resort aspires to become a growing part of multi-activity tourist packages in the area, thus Logos Land’s third

marketing goal. For example, there’s no reason tourists can’t zip over Astrolabe Lake, play golf rounds at a variety of courses in the area, see the Bonnechere Caves, zip some more in Chutes Coulonge and try some whitewater rafting or kayaking. Unlike Logos Land, Chutes Coulonge offers two zip lines of 100 and 260 metres over whitewater rapids and a shorter nine-zip series. As Glover says, “Every zip line you see is different.” The area’s newest zip line, says Glover, will be simple, safe, exhilarating and an atSTEVE NEWmAN/mETROLAND tractive addition to what Lo- The project manager for the Logos Land zip line is Dave Humphrys of Challenges Unlimgos Land already offers. ited.

Five simple tips before hitting the road EMC lifestyle - Summer getaways are common indulgence in Canada and for the more than four-in-five of us who own, lease or finance a vehicle, exploring the Great White North often begins with the push of a pedal. Whether your plans include cross-country road trips or a weekend exodus to the cottage, here are a few tips to keep your vehicle looking and running its best on the open road: • Keep it clean: Starting a road trip with a clean car is a must, but be eco-responsible. Always look for products that are designed to be tough on grease, bugs, mud and carbon deposits, while still being safe for the environment. • Check your wheels: Make sure tires are road-trip ready. For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types. Check the pressure of the tires before you take off by consulting the owner’s manual or on the side of the tire. Properly inflated tires improve grip on the road and

save money at the pump. • Top up fluids: No one wants to be stuck on the side of the highway. Having proper levels of windshield washer fluid, engine oil, radiator coolant and brake fluid can make or break a road trip. Check the owner’s manual for the recommended fluid levels. Remember overfilling your fluids can do just as much damage as not filling up enough. • Get rid of the salt: As the temperatures rise, so does the rate of corrosion and after a full-season of battling snow and slush, the chemicals used to clear roads can eat away at a car’s body. Keep your car looking and running its best by getting a professional rust protection at least once a year. • Take it to an expert: Stay safe and avoid unforeseen expenses by following your car’s recommended maintenance schedule. See a professional to give you the green light for long-distance travel.

Keep your vehicle looking its best and running well for summer travel.

Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais presents a cheque from the city for $50,000 to Sue Langlois on behalf of the Capital Region Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment (CRCCPE).

EMC news - A group opposing the Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre has received $50,000 from the city to help fight a proposed dump in Carlsbad Springs. The city asked for applications for intervenor funding they made available for community groups in the winter. In order to apply, groups had to have at least 50 group members and proposals for the technical experts and costs they would like to hire. The Capital Region Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment have also been known as Dump This Dump 2, after the Dump The Dump group formed to oppose the original sole-proposed site in Russell, Ont. A second site was later proposed in Carlsbad Springs, and was announced as the preferred location. Sue Langlois, the coalition’s president, said that they want to hire experts able to review and give input on the environmental assessments that Taggart-Miller, the company proposing the recovery centre,

is completing. “The problem that we have is we’re not experts,” Langlois said. “So we’re looking to use that money to hire these experts.” Right now, the coalition is looking for a hydrogeologist and lawyer to provide input on the proposed dump. Some groups opposing similar projects have spent up to half a million dollars, Langlois said. The group has been doing fundraisers over the winter and spring, and plans to continue. Through pancake breakfasts and sports tournaments, they have already raised about $10,000. “It is going to require significant funding; we’re really thankful to the city for the $50,000, but there’s no way that will enable us to do a full peer review,” she said. Taggart-Miller held an open house on June 5, but the coalition’s members did not go inside to attend. They are opposed to the format of the open houses – with poster board displays, versus a presentation followed by an opportunity to ask questions – so they rallied outside instead.

With, Ottawa Valley LeafGuard you get MORE than a great gutter system you get expert installation and personal service from a local established company, who is going to be there during and after your installation. What’s Wrong with Clogged Cutters?

Ordinary gutters capture rainwater and also collect leaves, twigs and other organic debris that can become clogged and create dams that impede the flow of water. These clogs cause water to spill over your gutter and pool on the ground below. This can result in damage to your shrubs; lead to surface erosion; and seep into your foundation causing cracks and basement flooding. Water can also spill behind the gutter causing damage to the wood of your fascia and soffit. If you have add-on toppers, helmets and hoods, that are attached to your roof and hang over your gutters, they are usually held in place by screws and nails hammered into your roof. Putting holes in your roof can cause leaks and may void your roof warrantees. Take the first step in making your home maintenance free

LeafGuard is a unique system; it is custom cut and fitted to your home. It is a permanent solution, not a hood, add-on or bulky cover. LeafGuard is the only seamless, one-piece leaf protection available that has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal and comes with a lifetime workmanship warranty. How Leafguard Works The Englert LeafGuard gutter system works on the scientific principle of Liquid Adhesion. The gutter’s patented design allows rainwater to travel down and around its curved hood and into the gutter, while deflecting leaves and debris.

The metal itself is 20% thicker than the industry standard for gutters. LeafGuard features a ScratchGuard® paint finish, with a limited life time warranty and is guaranteed not to chip, peel or crack.

Beaver Barracks, the Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation’s latest and most innovative social housing development, is a finalist for the international World Habitat Awards.

Beaver Barracks development up for award

EMC news - A housing development that brought life to a moribund city block near the Nature Museum has landed on a prestigious international honour list. The Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation’s Beaver Barracks development was recently named an international finalist for the World Habitat Awards. The awards, which will be announced in August, were created in the 1980s by the Building and Social Housing Foundation to recognize projects that provided practical and innovative solutions to housing needs. The 254-unit Beaver Barracks occupies the land bordered by Catherine Street, Metcalfe Street, and Argyle Street, sharing a city block with the Taggart Family YMCA. Like the name suggests, the land once housed a Second World War-era training barracks for military servicemen, which the federal government sold to the former regional municipality in the early 1990s. Ray Sullivan, the CCOC’s executive director, said he’s pleased to see the recognition

garnered by the development. “It’s really great to see Beaver Barracks recognized on an international level,” he said. “Part of it is the design, and we have Barry Hobin & Associates Architects to thank for that. But, a lot of the (recognition) is from the impact on the community. It’s a mixed development designed to have a positive impact on the neighbourhood.” Consisting of two mid-rise apartment buildings, townhomes and stacked townhomes, the affordable housing development transformed “a semiabandoned, contaminated site in a forgotten corner of Centretown,” said Sullivan, adding, “There are over 100 kids living on that site alone – it’s brought a vibrancy to the community.” The building employs a number of energy-saving “green” features, which save the organization money over the long run, especially in energy costs. Being the landlord for 1,600 subsidized units means paying many mortgages, so any money saved is a good thing. The energy-saving features will allow the CCOC to pay down the mortgage on the Beaver Barracks, which is “hefty,” according to Sullivan.

The development, which occurred in phases over several years, included funding from all levels of government. To make into the top 10 finalists, Beaver Barracks had to beat out most of the 200 projects competing for international top billing. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes stated in a media release that the nomination is something Ottawa can be proud of. “I am thrilled to see recognition by the World Habitat Award for this fantastic example of what’s possible when government and local groups work to-

gether,” said Holmes. “It’s sustainable, it’s affordable, and it’s providing new family housing in an area where the only other houses going up are condos for singles and couples.” While Beaver Barracks has been well received by both residents and neighbours of the development, Sullivan said much more affordable housing needs to be built to sustain the current need in Ottawa. “This (development) is one step,” said Sullivan. “We’re waiting to see what the next steps will be.”

PC’s unable to capitalize on Liberal scandals

EMC news - The Progressive Conservatives continue to lag behind the minority-governing Liberals in the polls, even though a lengthy list of scandals and controversies keep piling up. The latest, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars spent to close two power plants, doesn’t seem to have boosted Tim Hudak’s party. But Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren isn’t ready to blame scandals caused by the federal Conservatives or right-wing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. “All these little problems don’t add up to much,” MacLaren said. “If something went wrong, if rules were broken, people should be held responsible. If nothing went wrong, they should be exonerated and we’ll move on.” A spring election was averted with the passage of the Liberal budget, after the NDP secured a number of gains for their supporters. MacLaren said the next best chance for an election, something his party has indicated they want to see happen sooner rather than later, is in the fall or next spring. He disagrees with critics who say the PCs should have at least tried to work with the Liberals to win a few concessions in the budget. The Drummond Report and others advocate a small ‘c’ conservative approach that has been largely ignored by the Liberals, he said. “The Liberals don’t even follow their own reports,” MacLaren said, a tone of frustration obvious in his voice. In a wide ranging interview, he continually returned to the issue of reducing GTA gridlock. He’s against raising taxes, but also wants to see money put toward improving the transit system and other parts of Toronto’s infrastructure. As for the Liberals hanging onto power in the face of many controversies, MacLaren isn’t


second-guessing the party’s current policies. Many observers have interpreted their desire for “flexible labour markets” as code for union busting; could it, along with other far right promises, be responsible for low support in the polls? POSITIONS

“I don’t think so,” he said, pointing to an LCBO and OLG selloff as popular and centrist positions. As for conservative scandals affecting the party’s fortunes, and the Liberals staying in power despite their own, MacLaren didn’t seem to have any easy answers. “It’s bad for politics in general; it’s too bad these things are happening; but politicians are people and they make dumb mistakes,” he said. “How is it the NDP can bring themselves to support a government with that kind of track record? I find it disappointing as hell. We should be doing what’s right for the people of Ontario.” Since coming to power in 2003, the Liberals have racked up numerous scandals and controversies. Two of the biggies are: • Plans to construct gas-fired power plants in an environmentally sensitive area of Mississauga, and another in Oakville, had residents up in arms in June 2011. After several weeks of continual protests during the height of an election, the Ontario Liberals cancelled the gas plants. Opposition parties say the decision was not motivated by environmental concerns but

rather political ones. Liberals originally estimated the cost of closing the plants at $190 million. It now stands at $900 million. Former premier Dalton McGuinty admitted to not knowing how much the closures would cost. • Ornge, Ontario’s not-forprofit organization that co-ordinates air and land ambulance transfers between hospitals, was involved in a 2011 executives compensation controversy. President and CEO Chris Mazza went on an indefinite medical leave at the height of the scandal after receiving $1.4 million a year while remaining off the “sunshine list” of public employees earning over $100,000. The company’s forprofit division, Ornge Global,

also received $6.7 million in a contract from Anglo-Italian helicopter manufacturer AgustaWestland, which is also part of the audit by the provincial auditor general. In February 2012 Ornge formally became the subject of an OPP investigation for financial irregularities. Other scandals and controversies during the Liberals’ time in government include: • The rural solar power deal that started at 80 cents per kWh was arbitrarily dropped to 58.8 cents after many bought the technology and are now told their contracts might no longer be fulfilled; • Samsung scored a solesourced, untendered contract worth $7 billion to develop green energy technology that will see significantly higher feed-in-tariff energy rates for the next quarter of a century. • The sunshine list of public

sector workers earning over $100,000 has catapulted from 12,000 a decade ago to about 65,000 today. Introduction of the Ontario health premium when they promised not to raise taxes; • Delisting of OHIP-covered necessary health services after promising not to decrease services; • eHealth – delays in computerization of health records, sole-sourcing and untendered contracts accounted for much of the billion dollars in inefficient spending. • Slush-fund spending totalled $32 million over twoyear span with no formal application process or obvious accountability; • Ontario Lottery and Gaming scandal during the Liberal administration saw winnings stolen by retailers and OLG insiders, along with exorbitant expenses by OLG staff; • CancerCare Ontario audit revealed millions spent after a weak procurement process and lax documentation; • MPAC assessing homes much higher or lower than the true value; • Tax money destined to Children’s Aid Society was spent on luxury vehicles and vacations, even gym memberships and executive allowances for CAS management; • A tax was called a “fee” and applied to tires; • Untendered contracts were awarded to consultants and lobbyists, and more expensive lunches and vacations paid for under the Local Health Integration Networks; • The G20 summit saw illegal regulations used by police to detain people without cause, meaning martial law was set in Toronto to crush civil liberties like never before in Canadian history; • Auto insurance rates were promised to decrease 10 per cent during the 2003 election, but have since skyrocketed; • Smart meters cost $1 billion to implement but haven’t provided the promised cost savings.

CASINO DEBATE A year ago City Council asked Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) to undertake a procurement process to determine a suitable location for a casino, giving consideration to the Rideau Carleton Raceway. That study is presently underway. Mayor Watson attempted to receive a commitment that the Raceway would be a secondary site if another location is recommended but that has not been accepted to date so he has put forward a motion to have only the Raceway site considered. I believe business decisions should be made by business not the City and also that a full public discussion should take place on whether a casino is right for Ottawa and on what process should be followed. We now have a month so I would appreciate hearing your views on casinos as soon as possible.

Proposal MP O’Connor sticks by Harper despite scandals would change work sites Derek Dunn

EMC news – It’s a bill likely unite all three parties at Queen’s Park even if critics say it will divide Canadians. Jack MacLaren says he is getting plenty of support all around for his private member’s bill to prevent Quebec construction companies from bidding on Ontario contracts. The Progressive Conservative MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills introduced the Fairness is a Two-Way Street Act in the legislature on May 29. It made it through the first reading. Although private member’s bills rarely become law, he is confident this one – similar to one passed when Mike Harris was premier in 1999, but killed by the Liberals in 2006 – will. “I think we’ll get support from all three parties,” MacLaren said. “ They realize it is not fair.” If the bill makes it past third reading, construction projects on the Ontario side will be off limits to Quebecers. While there is no formal ban of Ontario contractors on the Quebec side, MacLaren said he hears regularly from locals who find the red tape and other hurdles make it next to impossible to win Quebec contracts. “It’s a bit of tit for tat,” he added. “We are protecting our rights and Ontario jobs.” PROTECTIONISM

Critics say it is unconservative to promote what amounts to protectionism. MacLaren appears willing to take the heat to force Quebec’s hand. He said if they make it easier for Ontario contractors, he is willing to do the same for Quebec’s. Ottawa is lucrative for Quebec contractors with hospitals, businesses and more needing work done from time to time, and especially the city’s $2.1 million light-rail project. If the law comes into effect, companies that break it could face a fine up to $25,000 a day; workers could be on the hook for $2,000 per day. Among those that would have to change its ways is the City of Ottawa. Last year it hired 30 Quebecers to remove snow instead of Ontario truck drivers. Although the Parti Quebecois government’s inclination is toward protectionism, the province is reeling from a corruption scandal involving construction companies and may move toward cleaning up the rules in the future.


The Conservatives have accumulated numerous scandals and controversies since coming to power in 2006. Some of which include the following: • Perhaps the most significant is the Robocalls scandal, which sees one party member facing charges. A federal judge recently ruled that electoral fraud occurred in ridings across the country in the last election, though not to a point to change the outcome. Judge Richard Mosley didn’t single out the party or its members, but he found the person or people involved had access to the Conservatives highly expensive voter list. And that the fraud was high-tech and widespread. It has left critics saying elements in the party subverted some Canadians’ right to vote, the foundation of democracy. • The F-35 jets could cost almost twice the government’s initial estimate of $16 billion. That doesn’t include engines and in the eyes of some experts is inappropriate for the Canadian military. • The highly respected International Science Journal lambasted Harper for his dismissal of science, funding cuts to science programs and muting government scientists. • Harper’s prorogation of parliament is viewed as more crassly motivated for political gain than other governments’. • The mandatory long-form census, important to municipal planners and others, was replaced with a voluntary version. It is considered by many statisticians, businesses and NGO groups to be less useful. • The Conservatives believe the public service in Ottawa had a Liberal bias, which led Harper to strip much of its policy development functions. Federal workers are largely implementers today. • Harper denied a House of Commons request to turn over documents on the Afghan detainees’ affair until forced by the speaker, who said he was in breach of parliamentary privilege, resulting in the first of two unprecedented contempt of parliament rulings. • A handbook on how to disrupt

parliamentary committees, which play a crucial role in checking against a prime minister’s power, was handed to committee heads by the Conservative party. Harper’s promise to allow committees to select their own chairs was dropped. And he ordered cabinet ministers’ staffers to not testify before committees. • Harper, during the coalition crisis of 2008, said the opposition leader does not have the right to take power without an election. It betrayed a lack of understanding about how the system works. • The Conservatives have significantly ramped up blocking measures where it comes to access to information. They have also suppressed research to an extent that they’ve openly challenged the idea that research, empirical evidence and erudition central to democracy. • Arthur Porter, named as Security Intelligence Review Committee chairman in 2010, fled the country a year later and was recently arrested

in Panama on fraud charges. • Former Harper advisor Bruce Carson was accused of influence peddling. • Former defence minister Maxine Bernier resigned after forgetting classified documents at his girlfriend’s place. She had ties to the Hell’s Angels. • Former International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda was accused of misleading parliament by withholding financial costs of programs. • Defence minister Peter MacKay added patronage appointments to the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and is now accused of trying to orchestrate a coverup. There are numerous examples of patronage appointments under the Harper regime, including the deputy chairman of the CRTC. • The already finished Canada Action Plan cost taxpayers $26 million over three months. Because the program was done, the ads are considered election ads being paid for by Canadians.

EMC news – While the opposition hammers at Prime Minister Stephen Harper over the Mike Duffy scandal, a local MP is sticking to his side. “I am pleased the prime minister confirmed he didn’t know about this event,” said Gordon O’Connor, the Conservative whip. “He was completely taken aback. We are pleased he is not involved.” Senator Mike Duffy accepted $90,000 from Harper’s now-former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, to pay off expense claims deemed improper. O’Connor, like many Conservatives, is distancing himself from the P.E.I. senator and Wright, saying the affair was improper. “This is wrong. You cannot provide funds to a politician. Mr. Wright made a serious mistake,” O’Connor said. “I’m sure he had good intentions. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions.” He doesn’t buy the line some Conservative supporters use when they say $90,000 is a drop in the bucket compared to the billions spent by the Ontario Liberals. He said it is true former premier Dalton McGuinty wasted a lot of taxpayers’ money, but that doesn’t excuse what happened in the federal government’s case. In light of four appointments Harper has made to the Senate, all plagued by scandals, and a number of other questionable appointments, O’Connor was asked if the prime minister’s judgment should be brought into question. “He’s made 3,000 appointments, he can’t possibly know everything about all of them.” A CTV poll last week revealed just 13 per cent of respondents believe Harper is telling the truth when he says he didn’t know about the Duffy-Wright scandal. If accurate, that would mean many in the Conservative base distrust the leader. But O’Connor indicated the scandal has blown over. “People were upset when they didn’t know what was happening. Now they know what’s going on,” said the Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP. “I don’t think there is any permanent damage to the brand.” He wouldn’t share what was said

during caucus meetings about the situation.

Chronic migraine more than headaches EMC news - June is migraine awareness month and a great opportunity to remember that this neurological disorder is complex and to distinguish chronic migraine from episodic migraine. Chronic migraine is characterized by 15 headache days or more per month, affects nearly 370,000 Canadians, and is the 19th most debilitating disease according to the World Health Organization. “One of the main issues is that only 20 per cent of patients are well diagnosed and treated, which is why we must do everything we can to raise public awareness,” said Dr. Martin Veilleux, a neurologist at the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex in Montreal. Veilleux treats more than 100 patients for chronic migraine and says it is one of the most misunderstood neurological disorders. Both men and women are affected by chronic migraine. Women, however, are three times more likely to suffer from them. “All too often, the seriousness of the disorder is downplayed,” Veilleux said. “Mild headaches and episodic headaches are very common among the general population and are often confused with chronic migraine, which is therefore not taken seriously enough. Yet chronic migraine can have a significant negative impact on a person’s social and family life and seriously affect their productivity at work. A new website,, provides a range of information about chronic migraine as well as a list of specialists treating this condition in Canada. Before seeing your family doctor to determine whether you or a relative suffer from chronic migraines, it is advisable to keep a record of your headaches and migraines, including their intensity and the pain relievers taken.

New languages course at Wabano Michelle Nash

EMC news - Starting this September, the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health will hold credited Algonquin and Cree courses for interested people of all ages. The new languages program is thanks to Janice Ling, a language instructor and director of the International Languages School of Eastern Ontario. Ling, who runs Chinese and Spanish classes said a recent interaction with a teacher who teachers Algonquin inspired her to create a course available to people from across the city. “The teacher told me that some of the Aboriginal communities are losing their languages, or once they come to the city, don’t use it the same,” Ling said. She then made it her mission to find a way to offer these languages to the public and found funding for the program through the French Catholic school board’s international languages program. “Chinese for example, you can learn in any international program, but you can’t do the same with Algonquin,” Ling said. “I would like to make it the norm.” Ling said without the support from the school board, none of this would be possible. “The board figured out how to find the funding,” Ling said. “When people collaborate, impossible things happen.” The languages program will offer two classes: one for school children, and one credited course for high school students and adults. Space is limited, with a maximum of 18 students per class. The classes will take place at the Wabano centre every Thursday from 6:15 to 8:30 p.m. The cost to take the credited high school course is $30, simply to cover registration costs. Children up to Grade 8 are free. The languages instructor said the goal would be make Aboriginal and First Nations languages as easy to learn as any other language. The program isn’t just about learning a language -- it’s also about learning about the culture and Ling said there is no better place to learn then at Wabano. “It’s a spiritual space,” she said. “If the public uses the space, they are not only learning a language, they are taking in culture.” Lynn Fletcher is the culture coordinator for Wabano and she said she expects there to be a lot of interest in the classes. “Since we opened the new cen-

Students from the first International Languages School of Eastern Ontario class visited Parliament building this past year. The languages school will now offer Algonquin and Cree courses at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health. tre, I have been asked by the community about a languages program,” Fletcher said. “We have had some language courses in the past, but the funding only lasted for so long. Thanks to the French Catholic board, these courses will be able to be offered for a long time.” Fletcher said although there are more than 60 Aboriginal languages, Algonquin has similarities with many and by taking the course students may have the ability to converse with many different First Nations, Aboriginals and Métis. According to a 2011 Stats Canada survey Aboriginals who can conduct a conversation in a traditional language is in decline. Only 17 per cent of the population who

identified as Aboriginal responded that they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language, down from 2006 when 21 per cent said they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language. In that same report, Stats Canada found that only 4,305 non-Aboriginal people reported knowing an Aboriginal language. For the school board’s international languages program coordinator Frank Da Costa, he said it’s a shame that more Canadians, do not know any Aboriginal languages. “It really struck me that no one is teaching this. It’s crazy for us not to do this,” he said. “If we are able to do this, if we can help make more people capable of speaking one of these languages, we are going to do it.” Working with Wabano, Da Costa said, just made sense. “We like to have our schools where our community is, now all we need is the students,” he said. Currently, the board serves more than 6,000 students learning 20 different languages through its languages program.

Da Costa said more than 70 per cent of the students taking the courses are students from outside the board. In addition to adding the Cree and Algonquin language courses, the board will also add Angolan and Swahili. Da Costa said ultimately, he would like to also offer other Aboriginal and Inuit languages to the program, and is currently reaching out to other organizations to see if that is a possibility. “These language courses give them (the students) not only the knowledge of a language, but also about the culture,” Da Costa said. “I like to say that the extra languages we teach open up the children and students to the world and the world to them.” Email to register for the Algonquin or Cree languages courses. Visit or email Da Costa at for more information about the course, or other language courses offered by the French board.

Children taking to the sky over Carp Patricia Leboeuf

Young Eagles Rally invites youths to fly from Carp Airport

EMC news - The pedals, the floor, the seats, basically everything in the small plane vibrate furiously as pilot Matt Pearson takes off. The engine makes a strange loud whooshing sound as it ascends and the intercom crackles distressingly. The entire plane shifts, bumps as the wind picks up. He isn’t worried. He’s been flying for ages, logging hundreds upon hundreds of flight hours and he plans to add a few more during the Young Eagles Rally on June 15. With seven other pilots, he plans to share his love of flying by bringing children, between the ages of eight and 17, up in the air. The free event is put on at the Carp Airport, hosted by the local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). As well as the experience, the children receive a log book, a free flight training course and a magazine. The goal of the event is to spread aeronautics passion. “We are enthusiasts, we like what we do,” said Young Eagle Coordinator Alfio Ferrara. “There is going to be a kid out there that is going to benefit from this.” “Choosing it as a career, a hobby later on in life or be connected in one way or another,” he added. “It’s sharing our enthusiasm.” With the increase security and privatization in commercial airports, many young people don’t get to experience airplanes up close and personal. Both Ferrara and Pearson volun-


The Young Eagles Rally event invites kids to fly in two-passenger airplanes for free next weekend. Pilots Alfio Ferrara and Matt Pearson are excited to share their passion for planes with the kids. teer their time to give these kids the opportunity to foster a love of flying. “When you really love to do something, you just want to pass it on to somebody else,” said Ferrara. It can be a very expensive hobby to take up, with recreational pilot license costing a minimum of $5,000 or so. There are, however, different avenues enthusiasts can take to fuel their passion to limit costs.

Pearson got his licence through the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. “They have flying scholarships,” he said. “They’ll actually pay to get your licence. That’s a good way to do it.” There are alternatives to purchasing aircrafts as well. Bit by bit, like consuming an elephant, Ferrara and his wife built an aircraft in their garage. “The whole thing is big,” he said. “It’s like building a house. It’s not

going to be done overnight. It takes effort, continuous effort. So instead of watching TV you go in the garage in the evening.” It may have taken six years of hard work, but now they can fully enjoy it, taking trips down south whenever the mood strikes. The EAA chapter is also congruently holding its monthly meeting at 10 a.m. on the morning of the event. Children and their families are

Seniors on Site gives back to elderly Steph Willems

EMC news - An Ottawa company is taking its mandate to assist seniors one step further. Seniors on Site has helped Ottawa seniors with daily living needs for the past five years, is donating $5 from each new client to three key service providers: the Eastern Ontario Resource Centre, Good Companions and Rural Ottawa South Support Services. Seniors on Site employs experienced independent contractors, all over the age of 50, to meet the support needs of its clients, whether for transportation, companionship, housework and all the other things required for independent living.

“We work closely with the resource centres of Ottawa and surrounding areas and it makes perfect sense for us to be able to give back to these facilities, which do such a phenomenal job helping everyone in the community,” said Caroline Inman, client services manager for SOS. “For many, getting assistance from the centres is a lifeline and not everyone is in a position to be able to afford private agencies. We are very proud to support their independent efforts in helping seniors and families, and hope this can be the start of a great initiative on our part to continue to give back.” Inman said that all support agencies struggle to get the most care to clients that their funding and fundraising can provide;

as a result, there are many referrals made to other providers. In this mutually respectful environment, companies like SOS naturally want to help their comrades. In the five years SOS has been inexistence, they have helped more than 200 families and individuals meet their specific needs. People can access their services on an as-needed basis, whether it is for a single ride to a doctor’s appointment, or care and companionship on an ongoing basis. Inman said SOS’s first ever client, a 92year-old woman, is still on their client list. June is Seniors Month in the province of Ontario. More information on this initiative can be found at or by calling 613422-7676.

welcome to attend. Flying techniques and other aerospace subjects will be discussed. Once the meeting wraps up the kiddies take over at noon. “We do registration, we do a bit of ground introduction for the children,” said Ferrara. “How the intercom works,” he added. “We’ll show you how to get on because you have to walk on top of the wing, into the seat. It’s almost like getting into a bathtub for this type of plane.” They hold little workshops like how to build components of a wing (wing ribs) out of wood and glue, as well as other activities to keep the kids interested while they wait for a ride, said Ferrara. Once they are properly introduced to the basics, they are taken up into the sky for a 15-20 minute trip. For those with a daring spirit and strong stomach, the opportunity to take over the reigns may come up. “We really want to make sure that somebody who is really interested in flying has the opportunity to be up there and actually enjoy it,” said Ferrara. Whether somebody enjoys flying on a small airplane is discovered within a few minutes of being up in the clouds. The pilots do reassure the kids that there is no shame in calling a flight off if motion sickness or fear strikes. It also isn’t always obvious who will love flying and who will find themselves biting their nails. “I’m terrified of heights,” Pearson admitted. “But I’m fine in an airplane.” “I never get the flying that I’m going to fall,” he added. “It’s a very different feeling then being up on a ladder.” The event is free to attend, but requires registration in order to properly plan out the afternoon.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson joined Laureen Harper and students from St. Michael Catholic High School in proclaiming June as Soles4Souls month in the city. The initiative collects donated shoes for use by those in developing countries.

Soles4Souls seeks shoes for those in need Steph Willems

EMC news - Few things are as basic and useful as footwear, which is why a growing initiative is aiming to put more shoes on the feet of those who need them. Soles4Souls is seeking to collect 100,000 pairs of donated shoes in the Ottawa area and now has the support of some powerful partners. On June 5, Soles4Souls Month was declared in Ottawa by Mayor Jim Watson, who spoke at the recently opened Dymon self-storage building at Carling Avenue and the Queensway. Dymon Storage will be using its trucks to ship collected shoes to sorting centres in preparation for their journey overseas. A large shipment will be bound for Rwanda in July. “The fact is, the majority of people in Ottawa take wearing shoes for granted,” said Steve Creighton, senior vice-president of Dymon Storage. “Despite our prosperity, many people in our community do not own proper footwear,” he said. “At the same time, many people around the world face even greater hardships. In many countries, shoes can prevent life-threatening disease, injury and illness.” Creighton thanked charity supporter Laureen Harper for attending the announcement and declared that after just four official days of this year’s initiative, more than 25,000 pairs of shoes have been collected. Soles4Souls is teaming up this year with Sole Responsibility, an Ottawabased charity. The idea behind Soles4Souls came

in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, when a Nashville shoe executive collected 250,000 shoes as part of the relief efforts. Following Hurricane Katrina the following year, the same group of companies collected 1 million shoes. Soles4Souls officially formed the year after that. The Canadian branch formed four years ago following the Haiti earthquake, and the campaign came to Ottawa for the first time last year. “It was one of those charities that was just so practical and sensible, just like shoes are in many ways,” said Watson. “The City of Ottawa is very proud to support the Soles4Souls campaign. We’re eager to bring awareness to the cause through events like this and to be an active participant in the campaign. Individuals can drop off gently-used shoes at city locations like city hall or at one of seven City of Ottawa recreation facilities that are designated drop-off centres.” Students from St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville were also on hand for the proclamation. Their social justice club hopped on board the initiative following a suggestion by teacher Heather Kingsburg. “Our school brought in 560 pairs of shoes over the course of two weeks,” said member Chloe Preston, who joined club member Jordan Konery in speaking about the school’s enthusiasm over the initiative. Kingsburg said it was the first time their school had participated in Soles4Souls, and implied it wouldn’t be the last time they did, either. “I highly doubt it,” she said. “It was very well received.”

Charity barbecue to help the Youth Services Bureau “We thought it was high time to bring something to the Eastern Canada, to let people in this part of the country who might not otherwise travel abroad to gain the benefit of some of the leading instructors in the world,” Smith said. The event is divided into the two days, Smith said, so students from all levels can gain instruction on a variety of different fencing styles. “Yes, it will be competitive, but it is not a competition,” Smith said. “The winner is the person chosen among the participants as having shown the best display of the art, with the best sportsmanship, or dare we say ‘chivalric demeanor.’ ” Participants will be divided into factions to challenge and fight one another in amicable competition. The community is encouraged to come out and cheer on the swordsmen and wom-

en, while they challenge each other. The Sunday event will also have a charity barbecue that will help raising money for the Youth Services Bureau. The organization has helped raise money for the Youth Services Bureau in the past, and felt hosting a barbecue was a great way to included them in their first event. “We thought we could continue to help the organization we’ve grown to have a relationship with by inviting them to provide our fighters with valuable sustenance during their day-long adventure,” Smith said. There are 30 active members in the organization who come out to the regularly scheduled training sessions at the centre on Wednesday night from 7 to 10 p.m. There is a free trial class offered each week beginning at 8 p.m. for individuals who

are interested in seeing if swordplay is for them. “It is great exercise, and addresses the imagination. Who hasn’t, as a child, dreamt of being a musketeer or a knight?” Smith said. “The sword is a weapon that captures the imagination, and people are drawn to swordplay for fun, for the love of history, or for the practice of a serious martial system.” Bernard Emmerich said he comes out because regardless of size or sex, people have a chance to hold their own in the ring. The club practices a number of different historical European Martial Arts including art of Armizare, a holistic art (wrestling, dagger, arming sword, long sword, spear and pole axe). Visit for more information about the upcoming festival, or to learn more about the organization’s traning sessions, or swordplay.

Ain’t no mountain high enough for local explorer

EMC lifestyle – Chris Cameron is taking his passion for climbing to new heights. The avid outdoors enthusiast, explorer, and social activist will be setting sail from Cape Town, South Africa on Jan. 4, 2014, with the goal to climb South America’s second highest peak, Ojos Del Salado, located in the desolate Atacama Desert. But this isn’t just any ordinary climb. For the past year, Cameron has been heavily involved in an initiative called My Kape, an international effort focused on promoting “conscious climbing.” From an early age, nature beckoned to him, and he found himself immersed in a world of outdoor activities. Playing outdoor sports and activities became his favourite pasttime, and in the end, it gave him the opportunity to experience competitive sports. Cameron’s love of sports would catapult him across the world to Europe where he competed in the Junior Marathon Worlds for one of his die-hard passions: flat-water kayaking. It even took him to Florida where he learned to surf. “(Sports) was a great way to travel and see parts of the world I never had seen before,” he said. But he soon found his drive for competing in sports diminishing, and realized it wasn’t for him. “With competitive sports, it requires so much self-focus,” he said. “There is so much based on external validation. I just felt like there was something missing.” Cameron spent a few years in what he called a transition phase, searching for the one area in his life he was missing. One summer, when he turned 11, would change his life forever. It was at this age where his love for learning about international development issues would be revealed after attending a six-week summer camp designed to introduce youngsters to global issues. But little did he know climbing, mixed with an appreciation to spread awareness of world issues, would eventually be his calling. He remembers travelling to China with his parents when he was 12. “That was my first real experience being in such a diverse country,” he said. “It was an eye-opening experience; there would be such huge con-

The trip, though, is as much about education as it is awareness.Throughout the course of the expedition, team photographers and videographers will document the trip, drawing attention to what the group will accomplish. “It’s a learning opportunity for us and them,” he said. “It’s a fantastic amalgamation of various interests and social justice issues that are often overlooked.” Cameron said they hope to provide a human face to the issues at hand, and bring that knowledge back to their homelands. “We are hoping that we can build these bridges, and hoping they can be inspired,” he added. “We’ll be mapping where we go, and highlighting the villages we visit. We want to connect with them, and create a sense of global citizenship.” For Cameron, the journey begins in a few weeks’ time, SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND when he will head to Cape South Ottawa resident Chris Cameron’s passion for climbing and his constant thirst for learning about global issues will Town, South Africa, for sailing lessons. take him on another adventure this coming January.

White says Senate should be reformed

Keep Your Weekends Free!

Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Former police chief and Conservative Senator Vern White said it’s time for Canadians to have their say. During a talk at a Greater Nepean Chamber of Commerce breakfast held at the Centurion Conference and Event Centre on June 6, White took some time to talk about controversy surrounding some of his colleagues. “It’s nothing like I faced in policing,” White said of the controversy surrounding Senators Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau. “There I had officers killed or officers kill people.” White said the main difference between dealing with similar issues as police chief and how the government is dealing with the embattled Senate is that loyalty has been placed over integrity. “They are the two most important things in policing,” he said. “Loyalty is important when I am going on a call with my partner. I have to know that he will potentially put his life on the line to protect me. But by the same token he has to know that if he does something wrong, like punch a suspect, that integrity trumps loyalty.” INTEGRITY

White said integrity was so important to him as a police chief that he fired officers he liked and officers he thought, other than the infraction; were good police officers. “But they no longer deserved my loyalty to continue on the police force,” he said. Recently White wrote to the Senate Ethics officer asking her to investigate a $1.7-million offshore trust that reports say names Liberal Senator Pana Merchant as a beneficiary. He said the situation in the Senate is made more difficult by the fact that loyalty is being placed over integrity in some cases. “There are some people that don’t deserve our loyalty,” he said. White said he wouldn’t have joined the Senate if there wasn’t talk of reform. He said one of the positive outcomes of the controversy is that Canadians have never been more plugged into what they expect from the Senate. “We need to ask Canadians what they want to see, and to be fair that could be abolishment,” he said. “But if people want to see regional representation in areas where they don’t have any representation, that’s what we need to be doing.” COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

He said one of the reasons most people come to the Senate is because of what they have done in their communities. “There are more Order of Canadas there than any other place I have seen,” he said. White, a Kanata resident, is often asked to speak about community engagement. He came to policing after being on the wrong side of the law a couple of times during his teen years in Cape Breton. But a job bartending at a little pub put him into contact with RCMP officers. “I used to ask them about policing and what


Senator Vern White talked about the challenges facing the Senate during a meeting of the Greater Nepean Chamber of Commerce on June 6. it was like to be police officers,” he said. \ “They suggested I do a ride-along and I told them I had done a couple, but they weren’t the best experiences.” Despite that, White completed 800 hours of ride along time before applying to work for the RCMP. During his career with them he worked his way up to assistant commissioner after 19 years serving in the country’s three northern territories. He said differing opinions on integrity with the commissioner of the day is why he made the move to municipal policing – first with Durham and then with Ottawa. He said growing up in a small town has helped him to stay on the right path. His father, who worked as a coal miner, worked more than three decades without taking a sick day. “When we messed up my dad used to ask us if we had known what the right thing to do was. If we said yes, then we had no excuse. There was no alternative,” White said. White said Ottawa was a unique community. “This city has more play than any other place I have lived,” he said. “I have yet to see a city with as many segments – as many definitions of community. People always say, ‘I am from Kanata, Cumberland or Nepean and I think that helps prop up the city to make it a better place to live.” White recalled the work he and other volunteers did with philanthropist Dave Smith in an effort to get two youth drug treatment centres built in the city. “We brought together more than 30 partners to raise $6 million and build two centres,” he said. “That’s going to provide treatment for kids many of you may not know, but we understand that it takes a village.”

EMC news – GloucesterSouth Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said the latest funding approved for the StrandherdArmstrong bridge isn’t just about the dollars and cents. “We are going to try and recoup some of the funds through the bond agreement after the Aug. 31 deadline,” Desroches said. “But right now we just need to get the job done.” Nearly a year after the link

between Riverside South and Barrhaven was supposed to open, the city’s finance and economic development committee approved $1.6 million in extra funds to support the project until construction can be completed. But Desroches said although the committee approved the additional funding on June 4, it’s important to remember the city has a $22-million bond on the project. The company hired to build the $48-million beleaguered bridge went into receivership in

March 2012. Then a year later the city announced some delays because of welding issues. The extra funding approved by the city will pay for extra project managers, technical consultants and inspectors supervising the contractors. A portion of the funding will also be for design changes, Desroches said. “It’s not uncommon for a project as large as this to require design changes,” he said. The experience with the bridge could alter the way the city

funds insurance on bigger projects Desroches said. “The bonding company is covering the delay but they are making decisions out of a boardroom in Toronto,” Desroches said. “They aren’t really exploring an accelerated timeline.” Desroches said it may be in the city’s best interests to create a reserve fund and insure their own projects against delays. In the meantime, the only option is to get the bridge built, he said. “Between the Earl Armstrong (Road) widening and the work on Strandherd Road, that corridor has had more than $100 million in work done,” Desroches said. “The bridge is the last piece of the puzzle.”

Great find in the heart of Shirley’s Brook! This house has amazing space inside and out. 4bedrooms, 4baths home, finished lower level. Many upgrades. Huge Yard. Have to see for yourself!
