Pedestrian friendly street needed for town centre area Patricia Leboeuf

EMC news - Kanata Avenue may soon see itself transformed into a pedestrian friendly main street. About 11 hectares of the Kanata Town Centre Lands has been put aside for development and ideas on how to transform it into an active, vibrant area have been bubbling. “Let’s look at that part of Kanata Avenue and make it act like a main street where you have parking, stores that you can walk to and sidewalk cafes and that kind of thing,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “It’s a hard thing to manufacture, but it can be done.” Plans for the lot have not been made concrete, but a few were brought forth in a public meeting at All Saints Catholic High School on June 11. These lands were purchased in the 1990s and the initial thought was to create a new main street through the property. That idea was later scrapped as it was not financially feasible and Kanata Avenue became the next best option. The vision of a walkable main street has been longstanding, even before amalgamation, but the concept plan needed to be reviewed.

Lumière Gala to benefit cancer foundation Inaugural Keltic Cup kicks off Sept. 11 event




** D C

Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The Lumière Charity Gala is an important event for the Brookstreet Hotel, said Patrice Basille, executive vice president and general manager of the organization. Now in its 11th year, the event raises funds for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation – a charity near and dear to the hotel staff. Eleven employees are cancer survivors, said Basille. His wife is also a breast cancer survivor. “They’ve all come through it,” he said. The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is the perfect recipient, he said, because the money stays in the community and it’s possible to see where the funds are used. “This is very important,” he said. “We all know we’ll be touched by cancer.”

Bill Toutant, organizer of the Keltic Cup, left, and Terry Matthews, chairman of the Brookstreet Hotel and founder and chairman of Wesley Clover International, announce the inaugural Keltic Cup, to take place together with the Lumière Charity Gala.



The inaugural Keltic Cup Golf Classic is also raising funds for the cancer foundation, in partnership with the Brookstreet and Chmiel Architects, with a tee-off on the morning of Sept. 11 at the Marshes Golf Club.





We’ll all have really good fun – a little music, a little fireworks, a little socializing, a little drink – what a great chemistry set we have to play with.

The Lumière Charity Gala kicked off with a food demonstration at the Brookstreet Hotel on June 13. The hotel’s executive chef, Clifford Lyness, prepared a shrimp dish for those in attendance, served alongside duck, sushi and a variety of desserts. Lyness has created a preliminary menu, which may see a few changes before the Sept. 11 event, but the overall idea is to incorporate food from musical events around the globe. “The concept is to do (food from) jazz festivals from around the world,” said Lyness. Some of the initial dishes include the Cajun spiced gulf shrimp, served with andouie sausage, fried grit cake, collards and sassafrass root beer sauce from the New Orleans

Trooper looks forward to a good time ‘Our goal is to make the best Canada Day party possible’: Ra McGuire Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Trooper will be in Kanata for a good time on July 1. After years of trying to secure the Juno-award winning band for Canada Day in Kanata, the group’s schedule synced up with the event, which will take place at Walter Baker Park. “This year, we’re happy to see that the Kanata show is a go,” said Ra McGuire, one of two founding members of the Canadian rock band.

Ottawa Valley Tours

“Canada Day shows are always fun outdoor parties with the added bonus of being an opportunity to show a little Canadian pride. We’re looking forward to thousands of people having a good time with us.” Trooper – which includes Brian Smith (the other founding member), Gogo, Scott Brown and Clayton Hill – is usually booked for a Canada Day show and Diane McNulty, director of programming for the Kanata event, said it took “blood, sweat and tears” to get the iconic band to Walter


Iconic Canadian band Trooper will hit the main stage at Walter Baker Park in Kanata at 8:30 p.m. on Canada Day. Ra McGuire, vocalist, said the band is ‘looking forward to thousands of people having a good time with us.’ Baker Park. “We were just lucky they were available,” she said in an earlier interview. “I’ve seen them perform a few times and they put on a great show.”



So far, McGuire’s favourite shows have taken place on the east and west coasts, but there’s always the possibility of including a middle province on the list of top Canada Day concerts. “I have to say that our Canada Day show in St. John’s, Nfld., is still my favourite – although our 2011 show in Surrey, B.C., where the mayor came out to sing Raise a Little Hell with us,

runs a close second. Is Kanata’s mayor a good singer?” he asked. “All of our shows are different, but every one is tons of fun. Our goal is to make the best Canada Day party possible.” With other well-known hits like We’re Here for a Good Time (Not a Long Time) and The Boys in the Bright White Sports Car, Trooper’s music appeals to a wide audience. “I enjoy the ‘anything can happen’ part of our shows the most. There’s a lot of magic possible in the time we spend on stage,” said McGuire. The band first hit the Canadian music scene in 1975 and has since released 10 studio albums, earning

a number of gold and platinum certifications, but it’s the fans that propel the members to keep doing what they’re doing. “Playing in a band is all we’ve ever done. It’s like breathing to us now – and there’s still nothing quite like a live show. And we have the best, most supportive, fans ever,” he said. “We sometimes spend more time with the audience after the show, at the T-shirt booth, than we do on stage. Interacting with our fans is super important to us. Really, our whole focus as a band is the people who come out to see us.” Trooper will hit the main stage from 8:30 to 10 p.m. on Canada Day, with the fireworks set to go off after the band wraps up. For more information on the event, visit So far, Trooper already has 30 more gigs booked for the remainder of 2013, including a concert at the Calgary Stampede. But the band has a few days off before and after the Kanata event so McGuire said he’s planning on some downtime in Ottawa. “We play Toronto a couple nights before our Kanata show, so we’ve planned to take the days off in Ottawa, one of our favourite cities to hang out in,” he said. “I’ll be making another pilgrimage to the National Gallery and doing my usual walkabout. I’m hoping the weather will be nice. We’ll go home after Canada Day but we head out a few days later to play the Calgary Stampede – which should be a lot of R0022158693

unique in that the EA process has a very fine way of going through and looking at the needs and alternatives and solutions,” said Michael Flainek, of Dillon Consulting Limited. “There are lots of things we look at when we are looking at the cross-section of Kanata Avenue,” he added. “We want to accommodate all of those. We are going to be looking at pedestrians, cyclists, how we are going to handle transit.” Dillon Consulting Limited is looking into several options for the avenue. There are two main options. A suburban style of road is faster with separate left turning lanes, but will ultimately acts more as an arterial roadway while the slower urban style has a more downtown flair. “We are looking at some of the opportunities and some of the restraints of the property,” said Flainek. Not everybody is pleased with the upcoming development. Kanata Lakes Community

A similar fate could be avoided in this case. “In this instance, we own the land,” said Muirhead. “It’s not the politicians who own the land. It’s not city council that owns the land. It’s taxpayers who own the land.” “So I want a thoughtful look at how these lands can be used creatively,” he added. “It’s a little gem of a wooded area, it’s not very known and I think it deserves our protection.” He wasn’t the only one to

hold such an opinion at the public meeting and Muirhead calls for more research on what residents really want. “Do they feel the need for more stores in that particular location?” he said. “Would they like more just on the other side of the road along where Centrum is now? Do they think that Kanata Avenue, which is a main thoroughfare and will only grow with traffic, is really appropriate for a sort of main street idea?”

Development should still proceed, but it should be appropriate to the area and the desire of those that live there, he said. “The city would be wise to do that instead of just see it as a tax grab,” said Muirhead.

A similar situation occurred with the land north of the Beaver Pond in Kanata, where the only solution to save it from unwanted construction required the city to purchase it. As the price tag was exorbitant, the property was put up for development, the trees were razed and the land is currently awaiting construction.

“What we want to do is continue to maintain the intent of the original content plan,” said city planner Lauren Reeves. The Kanata Town Centre will become an active, vibrant core area containing a diverse mix of uses, she said. Several reviews, studies and concepts will be created and subsequently presented over the next few months, allowing residents to have their say. “More people’s minds working on something, always ends up with better ideas I find,” said Wilkinson. The road itself has to be updated and the area under review roughly includes the stretch from Campeau Road to Katimavik Road. As construction and development continue change the face of Kanata, use of avenue will grow. Traffic will become overwhelming as an estimated 1,684 residential units, 380 hotel rooms, 9,383 square metres of commercial space and 127,000 square metres of office space are slated to be built. To accommodate the increase in traffic, Kanata Ave will be expanded to four lanes. The road project is still in the beginning stages and an environmental assessment (EA) will have to be conducted before anything is concluded. “This EA is a little bit

Association president Matt Muirhead is advocating for a “central park idea.” The premise of which is to keep that green space mostly intact, but to manage it so that it can become a desired destination for outdoor enthusiasts. “I’m not adverse to development in the right proportions and in the right areas,” he said. “ But when we own city land that is naturally wooded and relatively pristine we have the opportunity to create something more creative than to put in more stores.”

Earl of March student places seventh at Coin Provincewide contest sees 315 entries Jessica Cunha

EMC news - An Earl of March Secondary School student tied for seventh place in the 2013 Coin Competition last month. Chris Johnston, a Grade 12 student, had to answer 75 questions related to the field of chartered accounting in an hour and a half. He read through a textbook and completed the practice questions to prepare for the testing, said Johnston, who was awarded $100 and a plaque for his seventh-place finish, as well as an invitation to attend a luncheon in Toronto on June 11. During the luncheon, he had the opportunity to meet others in the field. “It was interesting to get their

perspective on accounting,” said Johnston. Johnston is planning on attending the University of Ottawa in the fall to major in accounting. “I’ve always been interested in the field of business,” said Johnston, who lives in Kanata Lakes. “A friend recommended I look into forensic accounting.” Forensic accounting is investigative accounting for law cases, he explained. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario held the contest for high school students considering a career in the field, on May 22. This year, 315 students from across the province participated in the competition. “Coin is a popular institute initiative to encourage students to consider becoming a chartered accountant,” said Mona Ghiami, director of career information at the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario, in a press release.

A rose by any other name


ike many fans, we’re a little disappointed after the city’s new Canadian Football League franchise announced its name as the Ottawa RedBlacks. The naming has certainly put Ottawa on the map, but not in a good way. The moment it was announced, the Internet lit up like a Christmas tree with people criticizing the choice on sports fan websites and Twitter accounts. To make matters worse, the franchise sent out a request to the media to spell out the name using all caps. One pundit on the Internet quipped, “The Ottawa REDBLACKS are apparently that one guy in high school who wants to give himself his own nickname that everyone calls him.� OK, the name Rough Riders was unavailable, as the rights are still controlled by the team’s former owner, Horn Chen. Jeff Hunt, president of Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, the organization responsible for bringing CFL football back to the National Capital Region, said red and black are the colours of Ottawa sport, with teams ranging from the original Rough Riders of the 1890s to the past and modern day Senators. The name is “unique, maybe even a little edgy,� said Hunt, adding it’s a brand that will stand the test of time and that fans will eventually get used to it.

But that begs the question, why introduce a name that fans must “get used to�, instead of coming up with something creative, that captures the imagination of a city, and makes fans eager to get behind the team? If the franchise wanted to attract a whole new generation of fans, why pick a name that harkens back to the 20th century? Also, RedBlacks doesn’t exactly smack of creativity -- we can only imagine the process for coming up with that logo: something along the lines of “Hey, the uniforms are red and black...why not call them RedBlacks!� The name RedBlacks will probably stick, but following the example of sports cities throughout the ages, fans will inevitably invent a more palatable nickname. Something that rolls of the tongue when people cheer at Lansdowne Park -- the same way fans in other cities came up with the Habs for the Montreal Canadiens. Blue Shirts for the New York Rangers, or the Boatmen for the Toronto Argonauts. Ottawa’s fans have plenty to celebrate with the return of CFL football to Lansdowne Park starting in 2014, bringing with it all the fabulous traditions of the fall, such as tailgate parties and a touch of frostbite. Eventually we’ll learn to live with the club’s official name. As William Shakespeare once said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.�


Neighbourhood summer events prove it’s always nicer outside


hings that start small and comfy can get big and out of hand, particularly if they are successful. Eventually, people begin to lament the absent smallness and comfiness. You see that happening in today’s discussions about the ByWard Market. If this has happened to Westfest, a neighbourhood festival that started 10 years ago, it isn’t obvious from the little window of it I took in. Certainly it has grown considerably, attracting more visitors and presenting bigger entertainment names. But the neighbourhood feeling still survives. I walked down there on a Saturday thinking it would be a nice to grab some street lunch. Walking was my first good decision. Success breeds cars and cars breed congestion and congestion breeds ill temper. Walking avoided all that, and produced an appetite. Where there are crowds you will find people with different attitudes towards being in them. For example, some people are attracted to long line-ups, figuring that they must indicate that the food is good. Other people, instinctively go where the lineup is shortest. That would be me, finding a very nice Polish sausage from a wagon at a traditional spot

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town beside Mountain Equipment Co-op. There then followed a period of trying to remember how to walk and eat at the same time, followed by a period of trying to remember how to get mustard off a shirt. At this time of the day, a kind of happy amateurism prevailed. The big names would come later, after dark, but for now there was a feeling that it was people you knew playing the guitars and violins. Many street musicians and entertainers were highly experienced, you could tell, but there were also high school kids happily pounding out their rock chords, perhaps newly emerged from the garage. There was an enjoyable middle school stage band playing Route 66 for an appreciative crowd. One puzzling thing: of the 21 musicians in the band, only three were boys, by my count. Why is that? Don’t the guys Published weekly by:


know how much fun it is to pick up a horn and be in the band? Just down the street is a jazz band of middle-aged men and women. You can tell they’re having fun. The spirit of amateurism is also evident in the booths, where small items are being sold, worthy causes are being promoted and demonstrations of this and that are taking place. Few of the people staffing the booths do this for a living. That means there is no such thing as a hard sell, which is refreshing. It also means that the customers are more patient than they might be in store. At a neighbourhood thing like this, you bump into people know you and stop to chat. When you think back upon those chats, you realize they have one thing in common: Nobody is complaining. How rare is that? Two people in Ottawa meet and converse and nobody complains? It must be the sausages and the proximity of ice cream. Or it may be that there are no cars around. We own the street on this day and it feels good. (Although the sensation can be a bit disorienting at intersections where cars reappear and the pedestrians and drivers have temporarily forgotten to watch out for each other.) Another puzzling thing: nobody talks

about hockey. This is Canada and the finals are about to begin and nobody talks about hockey. Sure, the Senators are out of the playoffs, but it feels like a cultural shift that the acquaintances you meet are talking about everything but hockey. Maybe it’s just a peculiar bunch of acquaintances. Everywhere there is food – healthy food, of course, but also an infinite variety of cookies and muffins and ice cream and honey and pickles and more exotic fare, sold by people who seem to be pleased to be out of doors. People are always nicer outside, haven’t you noticed?

EMC news - While disasters and emergencies affect everyone, the impact on people with special needs is often compounded by their reliance on electrical power, elevators, and accessible transportation – all of which can be compromised in emergency situations. Public Safety Canada offers these tips for seniors and people with special needs: • Create a personal support network of at least three people that can help you in an emergency situation. Ensure they are aware of your needs, such as prescription medication and how to operate any special needs equipment. • Make an emergency contact list with the names and phone numbers of your personal support network, doctors, neighbours, etc. Keep a copy of this list handy and share it with your support network. • Familiarize yourself with all escape routes and location of emergency doors and exits in your home. • Have a panic button installed in the building where you work or live so that in the event of an

emergency you can notify others of your whereabouts and that you need assistance. • Create a basic emergency kit. A list of kit items is available at www. • Tailor your kit to meet your needs. You may wish to include things such as: special devices like canes, walkers, lightweight manual wheelchairs, hearing aids, breathing apparatus, blood glucose monitoring device, plus food and other important items for your pet or service animal. • Prescription eyewear and footwear (if required). • Extra supply of medications (if possible) and vitamin supplements. • List of all medical supplies and equipment related to your age or medical condition. • Copies of all medication prescriptions. • Extra dentures (if required) and cleaner. • Latex-free gloves (to give to anyone providing personal care to you).

What do you think is the best location for a new Ottawa casino?

A) RedBlacks is a great name that recalls the storied past of the city’s sports teams.

B) It’s REDBLACKS, not RedBlacks. Get the name right.

C) Not my first choice, but I’ll get used to the moniker. D) I don’t like it. Time to go back to the drawing board. E) Who cares? Just start the season already.

A) The mayor is right – the Rideau Carleton Raceway is the best site.

Can you handle being Facebook friends?


BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse And as a May 2012 Huffington Post blog pointed out, perhaps the biggest problem is that there isn’t actually a rulebook or manual for Facebook usage. Every single one of us approaches the medium with a different expectation of how it’s meant to be used. I, for one, think Facebook is the worst medium for having any kind of authentic, emotional conversation. Others don’t share this opinion. Case in point: I received a nasty Facebook message from an older relative last week. I hadn’t received a message from this person since 2007. When I opened the messages on mobile, the feed came through in a single blob. Something along the lines of, “How are your

babies (plural, which confused me because it was actually a sixyear-old message), followed by a cryptic note saying, in a nutshell, “Don’t send anyone in my family messages because we don’t need information from you.” When I received this message, I was confused. I had come to the message in a very positive mood. I also hadn’t messaged anyone on Facebook for nearly a week, so I wasn’t sure to what “family messages” the relative referred. As one does in these situations, I sent back a question mark symbol, the lazy, social media way of asking for more information. I’ve been burned by Facebook messaging before. Particularly when there’s a generational divide or some sort of emotional content, I’ve learned these things are best dealt with person-to-person. I asked the relative to call me so we could sort out the misunderstanding. She didn’t call. The result? It ate away at me – for days! Until finally, she sent me another nasty note on Facebook. And that was the end of the line. Evidently, this individual and I could not – and were not Facebook friends. We couldn’t handle it. She wasn’t using Facebook properly, according to my own

standard. I wasn’t using Facebook properly, according to her standards. The honeymoon phase of Facebook is over. While many of us came at the social medium with gusto, friending every high school ex, work acquaintance and relative, it’s time to start weeding out the contact list. When deciding who to keep, ask yourself this, “can you handle being Facebook friends?”

every time you post something, it’s time to hit the unfriend button. There are many other, better ways of communicating with family and close friends. If you’re not ready to start eliminating people from your list, try to be a little more discerning – both in how you send and receive messages and in who you allow to be part of your public platform. Communications 101 tells us that there

What are the possibilities of offending or alienating each person, and more importantly, what are the consequences if it all blows up? Facebook is not about truth. It’s about the public representation of oneself. If you like to use Facebook to complain about work or clients, it’s probably best to get your boss and colleagues (and clients) off your friends list. If your family members get annoyed

is frequently a divide between what you intend to communicate in a message and how it’s received. If you’re not checking back with people frequently to make sure they’ve received your message as intended, you could be setting yourself up for a storm. Most of all – and take it from me, I’ve learned the hard way – be polite. It will get you much farther and, ultimately, allow you to keep more friends.


acebook’s tagline goes something like this: “Facebook helps you connect and share with people in your life.” It sounds so rosy, doesn’t it? But the majority of us don’t know how to use Facebook with etiquette. We’re sharing opinions and criticisms that nobody wants to hear. We’re posting edgy videos that get our mom’s friend’s sister, Alma’s knickers in a twist – even though we never intended them for her eyes at all. We receive political propaganda, emotional appeals, updates from the neighbour’s teenager’s dating scene, and all the while, our role is to choose how to react or not. Most of us, frankly, aren’t discerning enough to figure out the way to go. Call it the limitations of human relationships, but if I don’t have a clue who’s reading my messages or how it’s being received, chances are that somebody, somewhere has the opportunity to feel offended by something I post.

Clamp down on media bullies To the editor: The government made a good first step earlier this month when they initiated a program to combat bullying. They recognize school yard bullying, cyber bullying but they overlooked one very serious area. Media bullying! The recent attacks on Toronto Mayor Rob Ford are examples of the power of the press and the protection it enjoys ... I have no idea if Mr. Ford is guilty or not but the process scares the devil out of me. In Canada you at least have a trial and the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty. Not in the press! Once the charges are aired the person is guilty in the eyes of the public. On an edition of The Agenda this week Steve Paikin posed a great question to several publishers “Should there be some recourse when the feeling is that the press has gone too far?” The publishers were shocked beyond belief that they should even be questioned. If the media wants to hold elected officials to account then they should be subjected to the same rules. Owen Prince Kanata ***

Pensions optional To the editor: Re: Beef up your RRSP, News Canada submission, May 23, KKS. You report that pooled registered retirement plans, also known as PRPPs, are a good way for people without workplace pensions to get them and to save for retirement.

You quote Frank Swedlove, president of Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association, as saying they are a great idea. What he doesn’t say is that under the legislation providing for PRPPs, it is entirely up to employers to decide if they want to set up a PRPP for their employees. Dan Kelly, president of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, told the Senate banking committee in June 2012 that two-thirds of his members would not likely offer PRPPs to their workers. So much for retirement security. Canadians already have a fully portable, low-cost, virtually universal pension plan in the Canada Pension Plan. The best way to guarantee that retirees can live in dignity is to improve the CPP. That’s what we are asking the federal and provincial finance ministers to recommend when they meet in June. Ken Georgetti president, Canadian Labour Congress ***

Residents clean up To the editor: The Katimavik Hazeldean Community Association would like to thank all of our residents who contributed to the clean-up of all of our city parks. We had tremendous participation by families and individuals who generously tackled Rowe, Davis McGibbon, Katimavik Park North, Larsen, Pickford, Young’s Pond, Dunlop, Gesner and Hazeldean Woods. In addition, we wish to acknowledge the energetic groups of neighbours who came together to clean-up Cattail Creek, Brodeur, Watts Creek and Hewitt Park North. Furthermore, we wish to thank the adults and Christina, Caitlyn Andrew, Sophia and Jackson who all pitched in to clean-up Sewell Park. Katimavik Hazeldean Community Association

Terons awarded honourary doctorates Carleton University

EMC news - Jean and Bill Teron each received a doctor of laws, honoris causa, on June 13 in recognition of their significant contributions to business and philanthropic work in the Ottawa area and beyond. Jean, a Carleton graduate and member and former chair of the board of governors, has worked tirelessly with the United Way campaign, the Kidney Foundation, the Chamber Music Festival, the Ottawa

Hospital Foundation and the National Arts Centre. Bill, known as the “Father of Kanata,” is responsible for several regional suburban developments, and for impressive projects around the world involving energy sustainability. In addition, Bill spent seven years in public life as the head of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the Ministry of Urban Affairs. He laid the foundation for the former city of Kanata. He and his wife

also co-founded the William and Jean Teron Foundation in 2008. “What a delight that this is a joint ceremony because our lives together started during my frosh week in 1953,” said Jean. “We met when Bill was asked to come to campus to join the band and cheer on the football Ravens. I could never have imagined 60 years ago, as I entered Carleton, that such a day as this could ever happen. Indeed, I am a very proud graduate of Carleton and we are both passionate

to dream and to work and to realize those dreams.” “Time has taught me that whatever time and effort you put into any volunteer effort is more than rewarded with the knowledge that you have made a difference,” said Jean. “It has been truly inspiring to observe at Carleton how busy students have stretched themselves to organize both locally and internationally successful campaigns such as the Relay for Life supporting cancer survivors.” For his part, Bill told graduates that the hurdles in life are some of the best teachers. “Creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship are about problem-solving,” said Bill. “It is often stated that problems create opportunities. Life is about joyfully identifying problems, both large and small, and saying to yourself: `How can I make it better?’” The couple established competitive scholarships in architecture and industrial design at Carleton. They not only support the chair in industrial design, but have attended countless student performances and presentations. They have always provided positive encouragement to all.

St. John’s Anglican Church will hold its annual lawn supper on Saturday, June 22.

St. John’s Anglican Church to hold annual lawn supper St. John’s Anglican Church

EMC news - The year was 1923: • William Lyon Mackenzie King was the Prime Minister • The Canadian National Railroad was established • Marijuana was made illegal • The Ottawa Senators won the Stanley Cup, beating Montreal in a two-game total point final. And, in South March, St John’s Anglican Church held its first of 90 consecutive lawn suppers. On Saturday June 22, parishioners, neighbours and friends will visit St John’s to partake in the traditional outdoor fare, listen to some good tunes, bid on silent auction items and just generally sit back and enjoy. The event, which runs from 4 to 6:30 p.m., will feature ham and turkey, salads, potato salad, lemonade and all the other staples that were offered to neighbours at that original lawn supper. St John’s is located at 325 Sandhill Rd., north of March Road between Klondike and

Shirley’s Brook. “We want to make this event as simple and enjoyable as we can for folks of all ages, including wee ones, who will have special activities provided for them” said Todd Sloan , co-chair of the event. “You don’t fool with success, especially where good old fashioned fun is involved”. Tickets are available at the door at $15 for adults, $5 for children and $30 for families. The silent auction will feature not only merchandise but services offered by St John’s people. “There will be table indoors in case of rain, or for diners who prefer to be out of the sun”, said Sloan. “This is a heritage event for Kanatans and we hope that folks from the whole region will come out and see our beautiful church, rectory and lands while living once again that traditional experience. The only thing that could make it better would be another Stanley Cup. Maybe next year.” For more information please call Todd Sloan at 613-986-3609 or Linda Leinan at 613-864-3884. For tickets call Bob Wilkinson 613-592-4834.

CHEO set to make difference with new strategy

EMC News – The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario believes the future belongs to children, youth and the aging society. To address these growing demographics, the CHEO has designed a long-term strategic approach to better suit their needs. “The child and youth population is growing, and there’s a lot of concern about the aging society,” said CHEO’s President and CEO Alex Munter. The region’s child and youth population will grow by 20 per cent over the next two decades, said Munter, meaning there will be 70,000 more children than what there is today. In turn, the organization will have to deal with the demand for more service. The strategic approach also looks at creating shorter waiting lists for surgery and appointments with specialists and in emergency, as well as having the ability to book one’s own appointment online, getting test results explained understandable, and allowing

patients the ability to access their own health information. “Today’s kids are tomorrow’s parents, caregivers, taxpayers, workers,” he said. “In the centre of an aging society, children and youth matter more than we know. It really is about tomorrow.” CHEO, the largest pediatric and research centre in Eastern Ontario, is aiming to improve its focus and impact over the next 10 years, said Munter. Recently, the hospital unveiled CHEOnet, the hospital’s largest and most extensive strategic plan to date since opening its doors in 1974. The centre’s management engaged in discussions with staff, physicians, experts, partners, and most importantly, patients and their families, to build a new plan for the hospital. “We looked ahead at what we need to do to stay ahead of the curve,” he said. “We’re at a real interesting tipping point. We are still small enough to change, but big enough to make a difference.” While CHEO is at the leading edge of patient care and

medicine, they need to find ways to preserve that momentum and live up tot hat vision, said Munter. Essentially, there are five different pillars the strategic plan will focus on: providing an exceptional patient experience, staying connected within the community and CHEO, using evidence to improve health care standrads, making the best use of their assets to advance their mission, and fostering a “one team” approach. With medicine and technology rapidly evolving, the strategic plan sets out the framework for how the hospital can enter into its fifth decade prepared for the future.

The seven-month process for developing the strategic plan also looks at finding ways to connect with the entire community – that is, exploring the different partnerships available in the community, utilizing technology to share information within and outside the hospital’s walls, and coordinating care for children with the most complex medi-


ing and support to help staff take advantage of the latest technology, some of whom are the best in the world, he added. “CHEO researchers are in the top six per cent of research globally,” said Munter. “The impact of their work is felt around the world.” Munter said they’ll monitor how well they are doing every 90 days, using a balance scorecard to keep track of their progress.

The plan also looks at embedding service into everything the hospital does, including creating a learning environment focused on continuous improvement, increasing the number of patients involved in clinical trials, setting specific objectives for key activities, and measuring progress so they can ensure they’re always improving. “We are on a journey from going to really good to really great,” said Munter.

Recycled flour bags served an indispensible role


oing into Renfrew to the grist mill with Mother was always a treat for


me. I marvelled at how she bartered for a good price on the flour bags and how she always seemed to come out with a good bargain. The bags were piled willynilly in a heap in a corner and if we went early on a Saturday morning, before too many people beat us to it, the selection was at its best. Mother would take off one at a time, examine it closely, and either toss it aside, or put it in a pile by me. My job was to take the bag and fold it into a square so that it, with the others she picked, would fit nicely in the clothes hamper we brought from the farm. There would be no Saturday-night house party that week as my sister Audrey, Mother and I would spend the evening getting the bags ready for the Monday washing. There would be seams to rip out and those that needed it were cut open with the

Mary Cook’s Memories scissors so that they would lay flat. Of course, they still carried the remnants of the flour they once held and by the time we had worked our way through the basket of bags, we were covered from head to toe. Even our hair was flecked with flour. But since it was Saturday night anyway, our weekly bath and head wash would take care of that. Before they could be made use of, the flour bags had to be washed twice. On Monday morning, they were washed separate from the rest of the laundry, and hung over the fence to dry. That washing was to get rid of the flour dust. The next stage was one I detested and I tried to keep my distance.

Mother bought big glass bottles of javel water from Briscoes General Store. Using a big square tub, the bags were soaked for the better part of a day in a mixture of water and javel. This was supposed to take out the bright printing that came with every flour bag, but sadly, it never quite did the job. It wasn’t unusual for me to wear bloomers made out of the bags, with “Pride of the Valley” still quite visible across my behind. Then the bags had their second washing. If it was a sunny day, they were spread out on the grass outside in the hope the hot rays of the sun would further diminish the vivid printing on every bag. Although everyone I knew in Northcote made use of

flour and sugar bags, older girls like my sister Audrey would never admit their underwear once came from Five Roses Flour. Happy was the day when Audrey was finally wearing store bought bloomers from Renfrew. But alas, as long as I went to the Northcote School, my lot in life was flour bag underwear! The best bags, once they had been washed, were laid out flat and the very best of them became sheets. It took four bags to make one sheet and I was off the farm before I found out that sheets didn’t come with a seam down the middle and one going cross wards! Working around the printed words was a challenge for Mother. She made sure that the best pinny aprons were free of print and pillow cases, sometimes after being bleached three or four times, were ready for embroidering by Audrey and me. I thought my sister was very clever indeed. She made beautiful cross-stitching, which I never did seem to be able to master.

French knots were another specialty of hers and “company” tea towels were festooned with lovely embroidery work, which I was quick to point out to whatever guest happened to be helping us red up the kitchen. The aprons Mother made out of flower bags were enormous. They had long tails to tie at the back, and when I had to wear one to churn for butter, it covered me from chin to my ankles, and lay in a heap around my feet on the floor. A coat hook at the back kitchen door held many aprons. These were always fresh as a daisy, ironed, and spanking white. As soon as Mother heard someone come in the lane, she ripped off the apron she was wearing, even if she had just put it on that morning, and reached for one off the hook. Heaven forbid that she should be caught with a spot on an apron in front of company, even if it was just another farmer coming to have a chat with Father. Rick rack braid went on

collars of flour-bag blouses to take away the look of where they had come from. The bags had many uses and the price was just right for those Depression years. And what was known many years later as recycling was just another way of surviving those days when there was no money for frivolities. Although just about everyone at the Northcote School wore flour-bag underwear, with a few exceptions like my little friend Joyce and my rival Marguirite, there were times when I wished there was a better way of getting rid of the dyed printing on just about every pair of bloomers I wore. The answer came one morning when I was dressing for school. I mistakenly put the bloomers on backward. The printing was still there, but it was less likely to be seen in a game of tag or ball if my skirt accidentally flew up. Ever after I went to the Northcote School with my flour-bag underwear on backwards and no one was the wiser.

Volunteer’s legacy honoured Kanata Lakes park named after former community association prez Jim Malone

EMC news - Community activist Jim Malone’s work is felt in almost every household in Kanata – literally. The 77-year-old has been inside thousands of homes in Kanata to audit their safety and recommend improvements to make them less accessible for thieves. His efforts to bolster community safety are just one part of Malone’s track record as a community builder and activist – a legacy of volunteerism that was honoured on June 15 with the unveiling of a plaque that bears Malone’s name as the new moniker for a Kanata Lakes park. Malone’s involvement in community affairs dates back to 1961, before Kanata was built, when Malone lived in another community developed by Bill Teron: Bells Corners. His activism started with a bang when he threw the book at former Ne-

pean township reeve Aubrey Moodie. Hundreds of Bells Corners residents were livid when flooding filled their basements with water because sump pumps hadn’t been installed when the community was built. Newly married and 26 years old, Malone pored through the township’s records and plucked out a bylaw stating the township was required to ensure the pumps were installed – something Moodie had been denying, according to Malone. When he stood up in front of hundreds of people and read the bylaw aloud at a public meeting, the crowd went from silent to boisterous and it left the reeve “stuttering,” Malone said. “I thought that was so cool,” he said. Teron’s development company agreed to pay to install all of the pumps. Malone’s was first. He entered the civic realm and hasn’t looked back since. “I get great satisfaction out of help-

Next came a project to install curbs along streets in Nepean’s Skyline neighbourhood, where he moved next. After an incident that saw a motorist drive up over his lawn, officials called up Malone and asked him to identify which streets could benefit from curbs. He moved to Kanata in 1991 and jumped into the community association immediately. He served as the vice president, but not for long. Malone led the Kanata Lakes Community association for around two decades. During that time, he ran for Kanata council twice but never served in po-

litical office. The newly formed City of Ottawa called on Malone to assist with the transition and he spent eight months helping develop a plan for Ottawa’s utilities – one of the only parts of amalgamation that works, joked Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who signed the nomination to put Malone’s name forward for the park. She said Malone is a strong voice for community safety, not only for his work doing home inspections, but also for the outreach he does in local schools and with a seatbelt safety program. He is also an important voice for seniors, she added.


“He has made unforgettable contributions … he has done it with passion and selflessness,” Wilkinson said. Current Kanata Lakes Community Association president Matt Muirhead said Malone has been a personal inspiration. Malone said having a park named after him is the utmost honour because it’s a place where the community can meet and gather – something he holds dear. “I’m very proud and pleased,” he said. “It’s a tremendous honour I’ll remember for the rest of my life. “The nicest thing is to see people say ‘thank you,’” he said.

Strawberry breakfast parfaits great way to start day EMC lifestyle - This is an easy summer entertaining brunch idea. The parfaits can be made ahead to allow for relaxed and easy entertaining. Wheat berries are a true whole grain: they are loaded with nutrients; add a slight crunch and subtle nutty flavour to the parfait. Layers of luscious, creamy whipped ricotta, chewy wheat berries, slices of strawberries and maple syrup for sweetness, will have everyone endlessly dipping their spoons and clanking the bottom for more. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Standing time: 12 hours. Cooking time: 90 minutes. Serves eight. INGREDIENTS

• 250 ml (1 cup) wheat berries • 25 ml (2 tbsp) packed golden brown sugar • 2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half

• 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt • 475 g (16.75 oz) traditional ricotta cheese • 175 ml (3/4 cup) maple syrup • 1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise • 1 l (4 cups) thinly sliced strawberries • 125 ml (1/2 cup) slivered almonds, toasted PREPARATION

Rinse the wheat berries in a colander then drain and set aside. In medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, one litre (four cups) of water, the cinnamon sticks and salt. Add the wheat berries to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the wheat berries are tender, or about 90 minutes. When finished, drain any “That was way to easy!”

liquid and discard the cinnamon sticks. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to three days; tuck in cinnamon sticks to extend flavour.) Meanwhile, in a food processor, purée the ricotta until it’s completely smooth. Add 125 ml (1/2 cup) of maple syrup. Scrape the vanilla seeds from the pod and add into the cheese. Process until smooth. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to three days.) In eight dessert or wine glasses, put 25 ml (two tbsp) of wheat berries, a heaping 50 ml (1/4 cup) of strawberries and a heaping 25 ml (two tbsp) of the whipped ricotta mixture. Repeat layering and then sprinkle with almonds. Drizzle with the remaining maple syrup before serving. Foodland Ontario “I just clicked and saved 90%”

Five Kanata youths head to national music competition Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Half of the Ontario musicians advancing to the nationals for the Canadian Music Competition hail from Kanata. Five students from the community will compete in the national finals – touted as the country’s premiere competition for classical musicians under 30 – which will take place from June 21 to July 4 in Sherbrooke, Que. Ten-year-old Ryan Sun, who’s been playing the piano since age five, is planning on performing a concerto by A. Rzayev at the competition. “Me and my mom, we both like this piece a lot,” said the Grade 4 Jack Donohue Public School student. He performed in last year’s competition but didn’t pass the provincial round. When Ryan found out he passed this year, “I was really happy since last year I didn’t pass, and this year I did,” he said. His goal for the nationals is to continue improving his technique and learn from the

judges. “I want to learn what the adjudicators want to tell me about my piece and I want to make my piece better,” said Ryan. His mom, Rong Qiu, said her son is a natural when it comes to piano. “He really didn’t give up any other hobbies just for piano,” she said. “For him, it’s not that hard at all, so he really enjoys it.” Aside from tickling the ivories, Ryan also plays hockey, takes ski lessons, swims, attends Chinese school, is a member of the chess club and excels in math. And although he just turned 10, Ryan competed in the 14-year-old category in the Kiwanis music festival, said Qiu. “I think this is just the beginning for him,” she added. HAPPY AND EXCITED

Morgan’s Grant youth Phoebe Shi will also compete in the nationals. The 12year-old, a Grade 7 student at Broadview Avenue Public School, has been playing pi-




ano since Grade 2. Her favourite type of music is classical. “Classical (music) you play for hundreds of years. Other music, they’re just made one day and gone the other,” she said. This is her first time competing in the Canadian Music Competition and she said she was startled to find out she was a finalist. “I was a bit surprised, because my piano teacher and my parents, we all thought that it was going to be really hard,” said Phoebe, who also plays clarinet in school. “And then I passed, so, (I’m) happy and excited.”

Phoebe will play a concerto by Mozart and her goal is to finish on the podium, with either a first, second or thirdplace win, she said.

to advance beyond that. “I accomplished my goal this year. I was really happy I made it,” said Serena, who is planning on playing a youth concerto by Dmitry Kabalevsky. Her musical goals include becoming a teacher. “I would like to start teaching; teach people the love of music, of my experiences,” she said.


Pianist Serena Knight, 11, is hoping to learn from her experience as a finalist. “I just want to play well … for fun and for experience,” said the Grade 6 Katimavik Elementary School student. Serena has been taking piano lessons since age 5 and also plays violin. Last year, she made the provincials at the Canadian Music Competition but failed


The other finalists are Charlie Wang and Isabelle Hébert, from Kanata; Melanie Li, Natania Fok and Jae Won

Seo from Ottawa; Noël Campbell from Alexandria and Leonid Nediak from Kingston. More than 500 musicians from across the country entered the competition, with about 200 advancing to the nationals. Winners of the three rounds will share more than $100,000 in scholarship money. The Canadian Music Competition is designed to nurture future professional musicians and prepare them for the world of elite-level contests. “We often hear the question, ‘Are music competitions necessary? Are they important?’ For me, the answer is definitely yes,” said Robert Langevin, principal flautist with the New York Symphony Orchestra and the artistic ambassador for the music competition, in a release. “I participated in many competitions in my youth, including the Canadian Music Competition … and these experiences have greatly helped me, especially in preparing for international competitions, for auditions and for my career.”

One day traffic enforcement blitz results in 209 tickets

Be vigilant with distraction thefts: police

EMC news - The Ottawa police is reminding the public to be aware of distraction thefts that typically occur during the summer months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last summer, there were close to 100 distraction thefts investigated by Ottawa police,â&#x20AC;? noted acting Staff Sgt. Jamie Aldrich. â&#x20AC;&#x153;East district investigations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These thefts usually involve unsuspecting victims whose jewelry, debit and credit cards are taken.â&#x20AC;? The suspects, both men and women of different ages, use the following four tactics: â&#x20AC;˘ Street distraction is when the victim is approached by a suspect, usually in shopping areas often by a female who offers to give them gold jewelry in remembrance of a deceased family member, or as a gift. The suspect places a gold colored necklace over the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neck and quickly removes the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own gold necklace. In most cases, the victim does not realize the theft has occurred until later. â&#x20AC;˘ Family in need distraction is when suspect(s) will approach a victim and will give a sympathetic story about a family member being in need.

These distraction thefts have also been observed in other municipalities in Ontario. To avoid becoming a victim of such thefts, be vigilant. Providing local police with a detailed description of the suspect(s) and relevant vehicle information when applicable (i.e. license plate number, make model & colour) is most helpful.

Motivational speakers offers productivity matrix

EMC news - Motivational speaker Ann Max has a productivity matrix. Focus, flow, behaviour, discipline and motivation all make for a more productive work day. “Every business needs a structure,” said Max, founder and president of Productive to the Max. “There’s so many things to do and there’s not enough time … We want to do it all. “You need a strategy to keep you on track.” Max outlined her five-point matrix on June 12 at the Kanata Chamber of Commerce’s last breakfast meeting before the summer. “This is the time to recoup,” she told the attendees. “(To) figure out where you want to go.” FOCUS

For a business to be productive, it has to have a focus. Those running a company need to set a mission statement, which should outline what the company is, the goals and strategic plans, said Max. “It is very hard to do but it is important,” she said. “You need to know who you are; you need to

know what you’re doing. “If you don’t have that … you’re flying by the seat of your pants.” Create three goals at a time and pin them somewhere they can be seen by management and staff, said Max, adding it’s important to set the bar high. “If you aim low, you won’t achieve your goals,” she said. “Once you have your goals … you know exactly where you’re going.” And when creating strategic plans, it’s important to include everyone involved in the business, such as staff and clients. “Ask, ‘What do I represent to you?’” said Max. “Bring in other people to give you ideas of what your business stands for.” FLOW

Being organized, managing information and having proper systems in place creates a flow of productivity. A messy desk, files all over the place, boxes stacked haphazardly can all give a client the impression a person doesn’t care, she said. “You have to get organized,” said Max, adding that disorganization “means you really don’t respect yourself.” Dealing with files and getting organized is something “you can do

to give yourself a sense of peace.” Create systems and processes to manage all the information that comes in. “Try out your systems. Once they are achieved, reward your staff,” said Max. “As entrepreneurs, we’re very hard on ourselves. “Little rewards (are) very, very important.” BEHAVIOUR

Time management and proper communication will help a business be more productive. “In order to get more time, we need to plan and schedule our time,” said Max. This means making use of a calendar, day book or smart phone to plan out the day. “Don’t use (your brain) to try to remember things,” said Max. “Use a calendar, write it down.” When scheduling, work with the body’s natural rhythm. If a person is a morning person, work on the hardest tasks before the afternoon slump kicks in, and vice versa, said Max. Proper communication can also help alleviate future headaches. Listen and ask questions to ensure all parties understand what needs to be done. This will help ensure tasks are


Public Information Meeting Shirley’s Brook and Watt’s Creek Stormwater Management Study – Phase 2



Personal discipline is essential to becoming more productive. Control timewasters and learn to say no, said Max. “No is not a four-letter word,” she said. “(Or) we say no then give 10 million excuses – make it short, make it sweet.” Some of Max’s productivity principles for discipline include: • Live for today and only today • Focus on the big picture • Be aware • Be tough, yet realistic

Motivation helps people be more productive and happier in the workplace, said Max. Reward people, even with a kind word, for a good job or become a mentor. “Start creating relationships that create champions,” she said.

EMC news - The city will spend an additional $80,000 on more in-depth study of ideas to improve the ByWard Market recommended in a recent study. The city’s planning committee OKed spending $50,000 on more study to the policy and funding needed to create new governance model for the market, which some argue is ailing due to vacant stalls and storefronts. “I feel the market has been looking tired,” said Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, who sits on the planning committee. “I am not so proud to take people there anymore, but that’s where they want to go.” The city will spend another $30,000 on a plan to improve the streetscape. Any construction costs would be above and beyond that amount. Those funds are needed to implement the suggestions in a report called Strengthening the Future of the ByWard Market, was prepared by New York-based Project for Public Spaces. It recommends things like creating a non-profit group to manage the market vendors, providing incentives for food retailers, improving safety and creating more vibrant public spaces. While these aren’t brand-new concepts, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, those ideas are reinforced in the report. However, the debate at planning committee centered on an age-old problem in the market: balancing the needs and desires of its residents with the interests

of tourists, many of whom might arrive to the ByWard Market by automobile. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess pointed out the disconnect between the “two views of vehicles:” providing more cheap parking to encourage people to come to the market by car, or restrict access and parking for cars in order to create a pleasant environment for shoppers. David O’Neill, one of the Project for Public Spaces consultants, said parking fees have to be low enough to not discourage people from going there, but the city must provide other opportunities for people to get there by foot or bike. City planning manager Lee Ann Snedden said that while the market is the city’s “top” tourism destination, it is also a dense residential area. Although it is a tourism driver, the city is “trying to promote local fresh foods in this area as well,” Snedden said. Suburban councillors also expressed concern that the ByWard Market would try to appeal to residents across the city and would therefore contradict efforts to encourage people to shop at local neighbourhood markets. “We are not trying to compete with the Saturday morning markets,” said Fleury, noting that the ByWard Market runs seven days a week. “We’re different.” The governance report being prepared for 2013 will look at the impact on other markets. A Lowertown resident who spoke at the meeting was less concerned about parking issues and access to fresh foods than the proliferation of bars and res-

Sylvie Grenier of the Lowertown Community Association said while the group is generally in support of the report, the association is requesting that the city study mechanisms it could use to regulate or limit new bars or restaurants from popping up. Planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume sparred with Grenier over that request, saying that the city would land itself in court if it tried to restrict property owners from exercising a right to put that type

of business on their property that has existed for 100 years. “I don’t know that there is, or has been, or that this report provides the justification to take away that right,” Hume said. O’Neil of the Project for Public Spaces also warned against a moratorium on certain types of businesses. There was some interest in reducing or changing the fees for vendors in the market. Fleury said he’d like to look at a sliding scale that would offer space for cheaper during slow hours. Adel Ayad, a ByWard Market property owner, said slashing the fees in half or more and easing the complicated process to set up as a vendor in the market would help fill the vacant booths that are becoming more numerous. Patricia Kilmartin, who represents the stall vendors in the market, also asked for an immediate 20 per cent decrease in the rental cost.

More tunneling still doesn’t please rail critics Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city’s plan to spend an additional $80 million to put 700 more metres of the western leg of the light-rail line underground isn’t enough to placate one community group. Underground Solution, a community group led by Skead Street resident Lesley Taylor, said the group doesn’t like what the city is proposing. City staff revealed changes to the 1.2-kilometre western LRT line on June 13 in advance of a public open house that was set to take place this Monday. The new plans, which include burying an additional section of the line that runs behind homes on Skead Street, was meant to reflect concerns raised by the community, said transportation committee chairman Coun. Keith Egli. The new buried section will run from the edge of Rochester Field to Clearly Street, where a new station is proposed to be built. That’s not enough, Taylor said. Underground Solution wants the entire 9.5-km western LRT line buried. At the moment, the city is proposing to put just over three kilometres of that length underground, including the portion that will run under Rich-

mond Road. “This is a step in the right direction and there are some good ideas here, but it needs to go further,” Taylor said, noting the changes don’t protect homeowners in the area of Dominion Avenue, where the rail line will still be at grade. The city’s alterations mean the train line will be underground where it passes closest to homes and it will preserve the ability for people to use the green space between homes and the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway, said deputy city manager Nancy Schepers. “(The city) forgot about the Barclay and Upper West,” Taylor said. “It’s not just six homes … There are a lot of condos there.” The cost of creating another section of tunnel can be contained to $80 million because the short length of that segment means it can be ventilated naturally with openings along the line, rather than with a more expensive ventilation system, Schepers said. That means passengers on the train will get a glimpse of sunlight as they pass by certain points in that segment. The city will dig down about half the depth of that section of tunnel and build up a small berm over top – a process known as “cut and cover.”

City transportation planner Robin Bennett is seen in front of plans to construct a paved multi-use pathway along the Rideau River in Old Ottawa East.

River pathway could turn Old Ottawa East into cycling link Laura Mueller

EMC news - Building cycling links through Old Ottawa East will be an important way to capitalize on the city’s investment in a light-rail station at Lees, said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko. The councillor pondered the neighbourhood’s potential as an active transportation area during an open house on the preliminary design for a multi-use pathway along the Rideau River. When looked at in a wider context, providing cycling links through the “island” neighbourhood that’s wedged between the Rideau Canal and Rideau River could become a vital cycling link to get people from the future light rail station at Lees to Lansdowne Park. As the crow flies, the distance from Lees Station to Lansdowne is about 1.5 kilometres. People bemoan Lansdowne’s distance from a rapid transit line, but building the proposed Rideau Canal Crossing footbridge at Fifth Avenue and Clegg Street and connecting it to a new river pathway would create that access to rapid transit. “Here’s an out for you if you don’t

want to drive,” he said. “You’ve created whole new ways where people can move around.” The path is proposed to stretch from Belmont Street in the south end of the neighbourhood along the Rideau River to the University of Ottawa’s campus at 200 Lees Ave. It’s a project the community has been asking for for several years. In fact, it’s already a well-used route in some parts, where bicycles and feet have worn a dirt pathway along the river in some points. “The community has a big investment in this project getting done,” said Old Ottawa East Community Association president John Dance. Part of the trail through Springhust Park was already built as part of a recent sewer project. That section was constructed with stone dust – a fine, gravel-like surface that some residents say they would like to see used for the entire length of the pathway. “It’s more natural, it’s cooler and less intrusive on nature,” said Carol Alette, a resident who attended a June 12 open house at the Old Ottawa East Community Centre. The city is planning to pave the entire path, which is the standard for multi-use paths in the urban area of

Models, Fashion, Talent & Consulting Agency

the city, said transportation planner Robin Bennett, who is leading the project. “That’s what we’re aiming at,” Bennett said. Stone dust could be considered, but Bennett didn’t think it would be the treatment chosen in the end. The most complicated – and likely the most expensive portion – will be adding a ramp under the Transitway bridge at the Lees campus. “We may have to cut into the shoreline for the ramp,” Bennett said, due to the narrowness of the strip of land and Redesigning that section will also be important to ensure there is a safe, direct link for cyclists to get across Lees Avenue to the Transitway station, Bennett said. The Rideau River pathway isn’t the only cycling infrastructure proposed to come to Old Ottawa East. Earlier this week, the community got a glimpse of plans to rebuild it’s main artery, Main Street, as a “complete street” with cycling lanes. The city is spending $120,000 on the first design study for the pathway.Council would have to approve more money in the next budget for the project to proceed into detailed design.

Jialyn, a 17 year-old Kanata resident, has been taking singing and piano lessons since she was four and has been involved in theatre since Grade 9. Eighteen-year-old Woodlawn resident Langman started singing at age 13. Holley, a 17-year-old Carleton Place resident, ‘learned to sing before she learned to talk,’ said West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry as he introduced the girls.

Our award-winning campaign included a 10 km relay that saw a group of employees run from our Merivale Road office to our head office located on Albion Road North and a series of fundraising events that included a bake sale, chili cook-off and an online auction. Hydro Ottawa and its employees are strong supporters of the United Way. Through employee donations and corporate matching dollars, Hydro Ottawa’s United Way campaigns have raised more than $1.3 million over the past 12 years. “It’s the generosity of our employees and the dedication of our campaign committee that makes our United Way campaigns such a success,” said Bryce Conrad, Hydro Ottawa President and Chief Executive Officer. The employer contributions to Hydro Ottawa’s United Way campaign are directed to the Brighter Tomorrows Fund. This community investment program supports front-line agencies that serve people who are homeless, or those at risk of being homeless, to invest in energy-efficient retrofits.

EMC news- Manor Park is going to rock this summer, thanks to a local musician and a good fundraising cause. Penny Palooza, which will take place at Anthony Vincent Park in Manor Park on Aug. 11, was created by Peter Steele who was looking for a way to raise money for the Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre, where his neighbour and long-time friend Penny Thompson has been receiving treatment since being diagnosed with breast cancer late last year. “Everyone is Manor Park is aware of all the great things Penny (Thompson) has done in both as a leadership role for the community and as a neighbour and a friend,” Steele said. “We were all upset when we heard she was sick and thought we could help out.” As a musician, Steele said, it was easy to see how he could help: “I thought we have this great park, why not put on a concert?” Steele’s band, the Lockhart Station, will perform along with eight other acts, most of which are local, including a band featuring Thompson’s teenage son. “We live in a great neighbourhood, everyone pulls together and so many people are helping with the event,” Steele said. Thompson, who is currently undergoing treatment at the breast centre, said she is very

touched by the support from her neighbourhood. “The fantastic response of the community has made my journey easier,” Thompson said. “We are grateful for the friendships that have been extended to us and we will never forget the many kindnesses we have received. I feel empowered to share my story and, in doing so, perhaps reach out to someone who is not ready to ask for help.” Steele has partnered with fellow Penny supporter Marc Lafontaine, who launched a Pennies for Penny campaign in the winter. Steele said the two are working around the clock to get everything in place for the concert in August. The event is priced at $10 a ticket and children under 12 are free. There will be a magician, a barbecue and prizes throughout the day. All the proceeds will be donated and Trend Micro, an Internet security company, is sponsoring the event. Steele said he is covering any additional costs. “Everything we make goes back to the foundation,” he said. Steele is looking for volunteers to help out with everything from building the stage to taking tickets to cooking food. “Penny Palooza will be especially sweet because it will be outside in a park that we absolutely love,” Thompson said. “The park will be filled with happy people taking in music together. We look forward to dancing and to connecting with friends and neighbours.” People interested in volunteering or looking for more information about the concert can contact Steele at or by visiting the event’s website at A full event schedule is also available online. Tickets are on sale now.

Fundraising needed to get instruments to Africa Michelle Nash

EMC news - Well the clarinets have been collected, the guitars have been tuned and now its time to ship more than 200 instruments to Africa this summer. Since February, Instruments for Africa has been collecting used and new instruments to donate to schools in Africa. The journey to collect enough instruments to outfit an orchestra or two in schools in Africa began with Old Ottawa South music teacher Todd Snelgrove. The idea springs from just one guitar. When on a trip to Africa last May, Snelgrove had brought along a guitar with the intention of giving it away. While searching for the ideal recipient for the instrument, he came across the Linda School in Livingstone, Zambia. A public high school with an enrollment of 1,200 students from grades 10 to 12, its music program was operating without a single working instrument. Teachers at the school teach music theory and singing to about 300 students. Snelgrove donated a guitar to the school and since that moment, he became determined to gather more instruments for the cause. When he returned to Ottawa, Snelgrove began a larger mission to equip as many

Todd Snelgrove/Submitted

There are more than 200 musical instruments that will be shipped to Africa this July. students as he could with instruments and soon instruments started coming out of the attic, basements and out from under beds, dusted off and donated to Snelgrove for the cause. With a little over 200 instruments,

now the countdown is on to make sure more than 200 musical instruments get shipped to Africa this July. The shipping is aimed to take place on July 8 and is scheduled to arrive in Africa in early September where

Snelgrove, his fiancé and music educator Susan Carlton will meet the instruments there. After hearing about the organization, Carlton contacted Snelgrove to offer her help in developing a music curriculum for the teachers to teach. The cost of shipping and transportation to the small villages and towns is close to $6,500 - a sum of money that still needs to be fundraised. Snelgrove, Fiance and Carlton are covering their own ticket costs and thanks to the help of the Ambassador to Zambia, Bobby Mbunji Samakai and his staff, connections were made with the Zambia government’s Minister of Education who agreed to waive the taxes upon arrival -- something Snelgrove said gave him a huge sigh of relief. “The costs would have been doubled if not for that,” he said. But the shipping costs are still needed and Snelgrove said anyone who is willing to help by donating much needed funds would become a huge help. The music teacher said he doesn’t care what people do to help, and in facts encourages people to be creative. Funds have already been coming in from a many different sources, including the Music Students Council of Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School who raised $135 through a music-day bake sale. Local music-mom Shauna Guil-

ford collected $150 towards strings purchases, Snelgrove said many more people have made individual donations through the organization’s website. There has even been a generous donation of a violin at the Ottawa Folklore Centre, stipulating that any proceeds from it’s sale go to Instruments for Africa. That generated $200 for the cause. “The amount of instruments coming in is amazing,” Snelgrove said. “They are coming in every day. I get emails every day about this cause. It’s really incredible. I never dreamed the project would be so successful. And the success of the project is what is making me worry the most, if I only had five instruments to send, it would be easy to ship them off, but with 200 it’s a little more difficult.” Regardless of raising the money or not, Snelgrove said he will be shipping these instruments over but it will be coming out of his pocket. Its something he wishes he could avoid, he admits, but would not let the fact the group hasn’t raised enough money stop the children from getting the much deserved instruments. Once in Zambia, Snelgrove said they will begin their trip to the schools and handing out the musical instruments. To donate to the cause or to find out more information visit

Province won’t back Kettle Island bridge No Ontario money likely ends talk of crossing near Aviation Parkway Nevil Hunt

residents. “My thanks go out to the community,” she said. “You were all there at every meeting.” We need to make sure we don’t move a problem from one established community to another,” Meilleur said, alluding to the heavy truck traffic that currently uses the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge and King Edward Avenue, and that could shift to any new crossing. McNeely said he’s happy to see the province walk away from the Kettle Island plan. “I’m really pleased that the message (from Murray) came out strong,” McNeely said, adding that the city’s east-west traffic needs to be addressed before a bridge is built. TUNNEL?

Murray said the province plans to work closely with the city to re-establish a transportation master plan for the city. “We need a longer-term view and a conversation with the whole region,” Murray said, adding that means looking at east-west travel, truck routes and getting cars off the road by investing in public transit. “The provincial government has to listen closely to municipal councils and mayors,” Murray said. Murray said a master plan for Ottawa’s transportation needs could include a tunnel between Gatineau and Ottawa, a tunnel only for trucks, or even a ring road around the city’s established communities, an idea that was floated about a decade ago and then shelved.


Among those in attendance at the announcement was Orléans resident Louis Caron, a member of Sustainable Ottawa along with some residents of Manor Park and Lowertown. He said he’s been working for five years on the truck traffic issue. Caron said he’d like to see a vehicle tunnel between Gatineau and Highway 417 that stretches under Dalhousie Street and Nicholas Avenue. “It would eliminate 11 traffic lights,” he said of the proposal, which has already been shared with the city. He called the idea of resurrecting the city’s transportation master plan an excellent suggestion, noting that had a Kettle Island bridge gone ahead, the number of people using public transit could actually drop as riders switch to cars. One local resident who arrived at the Montfort Hospital announcement site on his bike said he agreed with the province’s decision. Robert, who didn’t give his last name, lives near Manor Park. He said the question of a Kettle Island bridge has been around for a long time, and despite the province pulling the plug, the city needs to address the downtown truck traffic. “They still have to find a solution,” he said. Cumberland Coun. Steven Blais said the announcement is an important decision for the community. “I applaud the provincial government for making the decision,” he said, adding that spending should be pri-


The province says it will not put funds towards an interprovincial bridge at Kettle Island, effectively scuttling plans for a new crossiing at that location. MPP Madeliene Meilleur, right, is joined by MPP Phil McNeely, far left, and Ontario Minister of Transportation Glen Murray at the announcement, made outside the Montfort Hospital on June 17. oritized. “If there’s a billion or a billion-and-a-half dollars floating around it should be spent on the LRT. We’ve working very hard to get an extension of LRT to Orléans much sooner than (has been) discussed.” Blais also questioned the utility of a crossing at Kettle Island since the completed bridge study says a crossing at

Kettle Island would have “almost no impact on trucks in downtown and Lowertown.” Orléans Coun. Bob Monette also spoke about spending priorities, but still thinks Kettle Island may be the site of a bridge far in the future. “If there ever was going to be a bridge built, I think Kettle Island was always the best location,” Monette said, “but

when it comes to priorities for Orléans, right now a bridge is not a priority. “It’s a good idea to identify the future location, but right now all our resources should be focused on LRT and infrastructure. What we need right now is for the province, the federal government and the municipality to concentrate on the major issues at hand.”

Train like a pro with the pros this summer in 3 great weeks of Camp


EMC news - When it comes to interprovincial bridges, it takes two to tango. And Ontario isn’t ready to dance just yet. The Ontario government has “reset the conversation” on the site of a future bridge between Gatineau and Ottawa, says provincial Transportation Minister Glenn Murray. He announced on June 17 that Ontario will not provide funding for a bridge proposal that would cross at Kettle Island and make use of the Aviation Parkway to connect bridge traffic with Highway 417. A recently completed environmental assessment selected Kettle Island as the best place for a new bridge. Without provincial funding, it’s unlikely a bridge could go ahead as planned. Murray’s announcement – held outside the Montfort Hospital within sight of the Aviation Parkway – was greeted with cheers by a handful of local residents. Manor Park homeowners had been vocal in their criticism of the Kettle Island crossing because it would bring truck traffic to the parkway as interprovincial trade used the tree-lined road as the shortest connection between the bridge and Highway 417. Murray said the province “listened very carefully” to the public. He said the Liberal caucus, including local MPP’s Madeleine Meilleur and Phil McNeely, were unanimous in turning down any involvement with the Kettle Island plan. Meilleur called the provincial decision a victory for

“What we’re not going to do is thrust new bridges and highways through existing neighbourhoods,” Murray said.

Lloyd Griffith, left, who has worked as a trucker for more than 50 years, protests what he says is unfair treatment of Ontario truckers doing hauls in Quebec. Griffith is pictured with Ron Barr, spokesperson for the Greater Ottawa Truckers Association, Jack MacLaren, MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills and electrical contractor Walter Pamic. The quartet tried to raise awareness of MacLaren’s private members bill Fairness is a Two-Way Street, with a blockade of 12 transport trucks on the Champlain Bridge June 13.

Ontario truckers demand equality during blockade on Champlain Bridge

EMC news - In a bid to draw attention for his private members bill, Fairness is a Two-Way Street, Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren and a group of supporters shut down a lane of traffic on the Champlain Bridge June 13. The act – if it becomes law – would make construction projects on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River off limits to Quebec-based firms. A similar law was enacted by the Harris government in 1999 but was repealed by the liberals in 2006. MacLaren was joined by long-time trucker Lloyd Griffith, who said having to compete with Quebec truckers who don’t pay taxes in Ontario makes it an uneven playing field. Walter Pamic, who owns an electrical

services company, said it was easier to send his employees to Nicaraugua and Poland then deal with the red tape when he tried to send people to Quebec. Ron Barr, who helped to organize the protest with MacLaren, is a spokesperson for the Greater Ottawa Trucking Association. He said many of the people he represents are having trouble making ends meet because Quebec truckers don’t pay fees to work in Ontario, making it possible for them to underbid on jobs. Barr said he and MacLaren brought along a dozen trucks as a gesture, but he could get a lot more. “Obviously I don’t want to do that, but I could have brought a 100 trucks,” he said, adding protesting truckers could shut down the city. MacLaren’s bill has already gone through the first reading. He expects it to go through

second reading on Sept. 12 and become law by Christmas. “We had no intention of trying to stop (Quebec truckers and contractors) up until now,” McLaren said. “This will slam the door on Quebec. Quebecers will lose jobs but we are going to protect Ontario jobs.” MacLaren thanked College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who is attempting to introduce a motion that would bar Quebec construction companies from bidding on city jobs. Chiarelli wasn’t immediately available for comment, but he plans to bring the motion to a vote on June 26. Barr said he would continue to champion the cause of Ontario truckers to local politicians. “We need to take care of Ontario first,” he said. With files from Derek Dunn

Construction noise exemption approved for Carleton U EMC news - City council has approved more late-night construction noise in Capital Ward. Carleton University asked for some leeway under the city’s noise control bylaw in order to conduct work on a parking garage it is building overtop of the O-Train tracks.

The motion put forward by the local councillor, David Chernushenko, states that the project includes bulk excavation concrete pouring and related works that require operation of construction equipment and vehicles around the clock. City staff said pile driving – the noisiest type of work – won’t be allowed after 9 p.m. and will end

around July 20. Work will continue for a week after that to extract the dug-up soil and rock and to assemble the parking structure. The nearest homes are 275 metres away from the work site, the motion notes. The councillor said that he was a little reluctant to move the motion

because he will be able to hear the construction noise from his bedroom window, but he is in support of the noise bylaw exemption. The city had to fasttrack the exemption so the construction can be done in time for O-Train service to restart in late August, according to the motion put forward by Chernushenko.

In 1984 O’Neill, who was a political science student at Carleton University at the time, joined Ottawa General Hospital’s Dr. Justin Maloney, his brother Mark and Geri Migicovsky to form Action 911, a grassroots organization that lobbied local leaders to establish a 911 system for the capital region.

Residents talk transit at Greenbank realignment consult Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Residents got a chance to see the future of Greenbank Road and the parkand-ride that will terminate the southwest transitway extension during an open house in Barrhaven on June 11. In 2006 the city approved a recommended plan for a realigned Greenbank Road. The plan incorporated Greenbank from Malvern Road to Cambrian Road. The area was defined as a key component of the transportation network in the community. The community design plan identified an extension of Greenbank south of Cambrian to the former urban boundary. But Tim Dickinson, a planner that works for MMM Group, the consultant that is working on the project’s environmental assessment, said with the expansion of the urban boundary to Barnsdale Road, development proposals between Cambrian and the Mahogany development in Manotick have necessitated a study of the transportation network in the area.

Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland

Residents from Manotick learned about options for the realignment of Greenbank Road and a location of a park-and-ride to terminate the southwest transitway extension. “The communities of Barrhaven and Manotick represent 30 per cent of the city’s population growth,” Dickinson said.

The transit study, which looked at traffic patterns from Barrhaven South and Manotick during the morning peak hours, was one of the

things presented to residents during the first of three public consultations held at the Stonebridge Golf and Country Club.

The report says 2,800 transit trips are forecast to originate from Barrhaven south and Manotick by 2031. The old location of Greenbank road would be closed off at the Jock River for motorists, but where the new road goes and where the transit system terminates are all up for debate. “We have to see if people want the park-and-ride in the centre of the community or if people wanted it extended further to Barnsdale,” Dickinson said. One resident said he was concerned with a Barnsdaleroad park-and-ride, people would start to use Viewbank Road – which isn’t really able to handle that much traffic. Frank McKinney, an engineer with the city, said that would be considered when they were looking at locations. The city is currently working on an environmental assessment of the area. Dickinson said that would include walking the route and identifying species at risk. “We will work with the developer (Minto), to see what

has already been done,” he said. Klaus Beltzner, president of the Manotick Village Community Association, asked if a Highway 416 interchange on Barnsadale Road – included in the city’s 2008 Transportation Master Plan – was still in the works. McKinney said the city is looking at a full interchange on Barnsdale, but is waiting on the province for a full decision. Any plans on a Greenbank Road realignment would depend on findings from the environmental assessment and community input. “Just because we have seven or eight options, doesn’t mean those are the ones we have to go with,” McKinney said. “Your input is very important.” Another public consultation will be held in the fall, with findings presented to council next spring if everything goes well, Dickinson said. More information on the project can be found on the city’s website under environmental assessments. Comments can be sent to frank.

Ottawa’s memory keepers celebrated Sabine Gibbins

EMC News - In 1985, the nearest hospital that provided dementia care for Ottawa residents was located in Brockville, Ont. Back then, patients seeking dementia care in Ottawa were admitted to a psychiatric hospital. “There was no place for them to go for them to deal with this (dementia),” said Dr. Tony Guzman, a retired neurologist. Now, there is hope for these patients, thanks to Tony and his wife Carole’s efforts to help those with dementia receive treatment in their hometown. Tony established the Memory Disorder Clinic at the Ottawa General Hospital, which years later was relocated to the Elisabeth Bruyere Hospital. In recognition of their contribution to the cause of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, the couple was honoured at the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County’s annual general meeting on Thursday, June 13. As the South Ottawa couple look back, they recall their journey building the clinic and awareness of the disease. While the idea certainly sparked the beginning of a new chapter for those with dementia, the challenge lay in attracting funding. In their spare time, said Tony, they worked on raising funds. Government funding was not, at the time, an option, he added. In came the Ottawa General Hospital, who was generous in providing space for the clinic. By 1992, they saw the room for expansion and moved to the Bruyere Centre. At first, the lack of secure funding meant that the clinic was only able to see 100 patients a year. It now sees on average


Seeing this as an opportunity to change the medical landscape, former neurologist Dr. Tony Guzman, seen here with his wife Carole, established the Memory Disorder Clinic at the Ottawa General Hospital. 2,000 patients a year. From its creation to date, at least 17,000 patients have come through its doors. “The more you see, the more you want to do,” said Tony of the devotion behind building up the clinic. Tonyspent two terms as its director, and worked tirelessly thereafter to pursue its goals until his retirement this February. Now, the Memory Disorder Clinic sees clients who experience memory problems, and provides diagnostics and help in the management of memory problems and referral to community agencies. Bruyere Continuing Care is the only provider of this service in the area. But, said Tony, its success stems from the variety of individuals who help it grow. “The important thing about the clinic was that we have a team concept,” he said. “There are people who book the appointments, people who answer the phones, nurses, neuropsychologists. And of course there’s the link with the Alzheimer Society.” Tony said he modeled the clinic after ones found in Boston and London, travelling there to study them in the 1990s and came back with ideas on how to establish one

of Ottawa’s own. “There was a need for one,” he said. “We saw the medical advances at that time. There was very little known about dementia beforehand and it was neglected because it wasn’t discussed or blown up.” Historically, because of organizations such as the Alzheimer’s society, the support was welcomed to help set up a clinic, he added, and awareness blossomed. Those who have Alzheimer’s, or knew someone who does, are now able to get the help they need. “Money has always been the greatest virtue when it comes to helping people,” said Tony. The highlight for him has always been the ability to be of service to people who require the most help. “You can’t imagine how frustrating it would be to live with someone who has dementia, and they don’t know where to get help,” said Tony.

My name gives it away does it not.... I am a BIG Kitty cat!!! but ever so gentle, sweet and affectionate. My fur is short and is pewter grey and white ... I am neutered and ready to move on to my new life. This is my anxious face when I check you out.... can’t smile just yet since you did not say you are coming to get me.

ago, Carole joined her husband in championing the cause. Since then, she has devoted countless hours to the Alzheimer Society in a variety of leadership roles. Among these, she presided over both the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County and the Alzheimer Society of Ontario. She is currently a member of the board for the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre.

The Alzheimer’s society’s job is about trying to help people deal with their dementia, and find ways to rise above it. And now, there’s even more resources available for caregivers. “At that time, doctors didn’t even know very much,” said Tony. “But now there’s the web, which has been a great help. It has an enormous amount of information and research on dementia.” In her past line of work, she has seen the types of challenges facing families. “Years ago, they weren’t in a position to help people with dementia. But now that’s changed over time.” The way medical services and clinics operate now isn’t what it used to be, and most of the time, it isn’t easy to afford, and it’s hard to find the right

medical professional. “The question is, how long will it take for people to get to the right doctor?” she said. “This is a big social problem.” Volunteering her time to these organizations has allowed her to see what’s happening in the medical field, and what changes could come down the line. “I wanted to keep my finger in it, and do something meaningful,” Carole added. She applauds the Alzheimer society for their service to the community, and for being there for patients. “It’s fantastic because as soon as they think they have a problem, they can put them in touch with someone who can help,” she said. “If they need a support group, they’ll find one.” Education is a key part of the task going forward, she added. “There is still a stigma about it,” Carole said. “It’s lessening, but it’s still there. All you need is someone to have it to understand it.”

Frank Spartico, left, is pictured with employee Andrew Stevenson. Spartico will host a fundraiser on June 23 to raise awareness about Tourettes syndrome.

Tom Jones impersonator to headline Tourette’s fundraiser Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Frank’s Catering and Baked Goods owner Frank Spartico started out washing dishes in a kitchen when he was 14 years old. He worked his way from the bottom up and has been in the food industry for more than 20 years. He has always had a hunger for food knowledge and over the years has owned a gourmet sub shop, a deli, a bakery, and a restaurant. His famous sandwiches will be on sale for $1, along with an optional donation, on June 23 at his Greenbank Road restaurant, thanks to an annual fundraiser he hosts for the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada - Ottawa Chapter. Spartico, who suffers from Tourette’s himself, started hosting the fundraiser three

years ago. It was a year after his son was dianosed with Tourette’s. Since the diagnosis, Spartico said he wanted to raise awareness and prevent his son from being bullied. “We got the president of the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada to come out and talk to his class,” Spartico said. “Now if anyone asks about his tics, his classmates can explain what’s happening.” Aside from the actual event, a jar on the restaurant counter takes donations to the Tourette’s Syndrome Foundation in place of tips. Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. Spartico takes pride in creating most of his food from scratch.

His restaurant has a real family feel with his daughter working the counter. He said he hopes the fundraiser will be a real party. The festivities will kick off at 10 a.m. with a Tom Jones impersonator and last until 3 p.m. The Merivale High School band will make an appearance and there will be face painting and karaoke. There’s also cotton candy and raffle prizes – with the chance to have one of Frank’s sandwiches named after you for a year. “It’s going to be a really good time,” Spartico said. While he doesn’t have a specific fundraising goal in mind, this is the third year he has raised money for Tourette’s. The event will be at 283 Greenbank Rd on June 23.

We wish to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the important contribution each employee makes in serving the children and families of our community.

Butterfly parks bloom in the city Brier Dodge

EMC news - Ottawa is now home to two new butterfly parks, one at Terry Fox Park and one at Cairine Wilson Secondary School.  Two members of the Monarch Teacher Network who live in Orléans decided to build the a Monarch Waystation in Terry Fox Park after months of planning. Mary Ash and Joan Harvey offered workshops at Cairine Wilson Secondary School – which helped lead to the development of a butterfly garden for the painted ladies breed of butterflies at the school.  This year, they received grant money through TD Friends of the Environment and the city to purchase subsidized plants and soil from LaPorte’s Nursery.  The waystation, which Ash

said is the first of it’s kind in Ottawa, is located in the north east corner of Terry Fox Park, where there used to be an old campfire pit.  When Ash and Harvey surveyed neighbours for approval, a mandatory part of the city process, they ended up with support and volunteers who helped pitch in to plant the garden.  She said monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs, so only gardens with milkweed will attract them. Besides milkweed, volunteers also planted flowers for nectar.  The garden should not only increase the monarchs’ presence, but increase breeding.  Because the plants are still growing, it might take some time before residents start to notice an increase in monarch activity.  “And they are very late this year because the weather has

been crazy,” Ash said. “I’d give them another couple of weeks.” Right now there is a bench at the area, and plans have been made for a sign to go in once more flowers bloom in July.  “I walk over there just about every morning and someone will say, ‘Oh, I love the garden, I come here and sit on the bench,’” Ash said. “As the plants get more established, we’ll have bigger and better blooms and more milkweed.”  The park is right beside Terry Fox Elementary School, so Ash hopes that teachers will use the park to teach their students.  At Carine Wilson Secondary School, Grade 11 biology students learned about the painted ladies butterflies, and released several that hatched in their classroom into the garden on June 13.


Residents have constructed a Monarch Waystation in the northeast corner of Terry Fox Park in Orléans. The station is meant to attract monarch butterflies to the park and increase breeding.

Habitat for Humanity NCR marks 20th anniversary Steph Willems

EMC news – They started out small, but in the past two decades Habitat for Humanity-National Capital Region has steadily grown its presence and its impact on low-income families in Ottawa. The organization celebrated 20 years of challenges and successes during its annual general meeting and volunteer appreciation event, held on June 10. Formed 1993, the Ottawaarea chapter of the organization (which started in Georgia in 1976) built their first Habitat home on Roman Avenue in 1994, with two others on Monique Street shortly thereafter. To date, Habitat for Humanity-NCR has constructed 40 homes and renovated eight others with the help of volunteers and donated funds and materials. Two ReStore locations have also opened (1997 and 2007) in order to collect and distribute those materials. Habitat NCR is currently getting started on three new homes in Orleans. “The organization has continued to grow,” said Habitat NCR CEO Donna Hicks. “That speaks volumes to the kind of leadership from our board of directors and the hard

work from our staff and volunteers.” Habitat NCR is run by a 15member volunteer board of directors, and relies on the help of up to 3,000 volunteers of all capacities over the course of a year, said Hicks. Each home build, she added, requires 380 volunteer slots to accomplish. At eight years of service, Hicks is the longest-serving CEO in the Habitat system, which is composed of 67 affiliates in Canada and has a presence in 100 countries worldwide. Because it has to collect, handle and distribute funds, find land, collect materials as well as manage the no-interest mortgages issued to families buying Habitat homes, the organization has to function as a bank, mortgagelender, and builder. While that responsibility results in a huge workload, the satisfaction of seeing families in need move into their own home makes up for it. “We like what we do,” said Hicks, who normally works14hour days. With much talk surrounding the growing need for affordable housing in recent years, Habitat NCR stands alone as a housing provider in allowing families to own their own home while retaining the eq-

uity after payout – something that can greatly benefit adults and seniors. “Many of our families have low-paying jobs with no pension plan,” said Hicks. “This house can become part of their long-term financial planning.” The need for affordable housing isn’t relegated to urban areas. Habitat NCR has seen increasing demand from communities outside the city, recently building three new homes in Carleton Place and renovating another in Kemptville. “When we started looking at some of these outlying communities, we didn’t know how bad the need was for affordable housing,” said Hicks. “We’re seeing more and more requests from outlying communities.” Hicks said she is working on a gift of land in Arnprior, a possible gift in Richmond, and is looking forward to a planned project in Perth. Large projects like new home builds aren’t the only thing Habitat NCR does to benefit the community; increasingly they are asked to modify existing homes in order to allow occupants (often with mobility issues) to continue living there. Under its Renew It program, Habitat will perform repairs or

While Habitat NCR is grow-

ing and looking to the future, Hicks said much more work is needed to serve the community’s needs. “It’s not enough,” said

Hicks. “We need to acquire more land, raise more money, and look at all the different ways there are to house people.”

This is a good time to overhaul your approach to fitness, Aries. If you have been thinking about scheduling a physical or getting a gym membership, do so this week. Taurus, you may have a difficult time taking sides when friends ask for your help in settling a dispute. Let your friends know you prefer to stay out of the squabble. Gemini, you are in need of some down time, so plan a weekend jaunt or a brief vacation to relax and recharge your batteries this week. It would normally be quite an effort to pull the wool over your eyes, Cancer. However, in the next few days you will be so distracted with other things that fooling you is possible. Leo, take a few days to act foolish, throw caution to the wind and have a good time. If you don’t, there may not be another such opportunity anytime soon. Virgo, the only way to get through a bumpy week is to keep your head down and your focus intense. Concentrate on the tasks at hand, and the week will be over before you know it.

Libra, sometimes practicality gets in the way of your imagination. Though this can sometimes be stifling, you have to find a balance between whimsy and reality. No one can put your plan into action better than you, Scorpio. Stop making excuses and really get started this week. Don’t expect immediate results. Sagittarius, you may not feel that something you did is funny, but others are bowled over with laughter. Play along so you don’t come across as a spoil sport. Expect your schedule to become quite hectic in the next few days, Capricorn. You may want to tie up any loose ends now and use any free time to rest. Aquarius, a burst of energy has you flying through all of those little projects that you have been putting off. Once you are done, you may have to create a new list. Pisces, though you feel like you have just been going through the motions, others are far more impressed than you think.
