Sanctuary suffering from hay shortage Dry weather affecting more than farmers crops Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Farmers aren’t the only ones being hit hard during the drought. The Galloping Goat Farm, a sanctuary for abandoned farm animals located in Dunrobin and part of the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge, is suffering from a hay shortage, said founder Lynne Rowe. Rowe usually purchases small loads of hay every couple of weeks, but with a lack of water comes a shortage in crops. “There’s nothing in the westend area,” she said, adding her current supply of hay will last about another week. Farmers are selling less hay than usual because they’re unsure if they’ll get a second cut this season, she said. And those with the means are buying the farm food in bulk – something Rowe is unable to do. The farm sanctuary is only able to buy small loads of hay at a time due to financial restrictions. “Hay is our biggest expense,” she said, adding the farm goes through about 50 bales a week. “It seems like in this region, some people have been buying up all the hay in bulk so it is very hard to find a supplier, especially because finances restrict us from buying huge quantities at a time.” See GARAGE SALE, page 4

Eighty-nine positive mosquito pools have been found in the province to date, which is the highest for the same time period since 2002. The province is also seeing confirmed and probable human cases of West Nile, which typically start to occur in August and September.

Kiwanis club looking for next idol Jennifer McIntosh

Now the work begins to select the 2012 idols. After the Aug. 11 auditions there will be a Kiwanis showcase at the Place d’Orléans Shopping Centre pm Aug. 25. The showcase is not part of the auditioning process and is simply a chance for the contestants to perform in front of a live audience. The top 20 finalists will hit the stage at the Orleans shopping centre on Sept. 1 and the top 10 will be back on stage the next day. Finalists are selected by a panel of judges.

Michelle Treacy, pictured in this promotional photo, performed at the Kiwanis Idol red carpet event at Scotiabank Place on June 30. The Kiwanis club is now holding auditions for the 2012 edition of the idol amateur talent show.


EMC news - The Kanata Kiwanis Club is already searching for next years star. Fresh from the red carpet concert at Scotiabank Place on June 30, the club is inviting would-be idols from the age of 13 to 21 sing their hearts out. The club is hosting this year’s second audition at the Merivale Mall on Aug. 11 and 23. Tryouts will last from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The Kanata club has been

hosting the Idol amateur musical talent show since 2005. Organizer Eldon Fox said it’s the only venue for young people to showcase their musical stylings. “A lot of the singers are better than the traditional bigname headliners,” he said, before the red carpet concert at Scotiabank Place. Nine finalists along with 2011 Idol winner Jordan McIntosh performed at Scotiabank Place in June after organizers worked feverishly to sell tickets and save the show.

Garage and bake sale to help fund hay purchase Continued from page 1

Rowe added that the only advertisements she’s seen for hay are around the Prescott and Cumberland areas, and “many won’t deliver small loads this far.” Rowe is hoping the community can help her raise some much needed funding. “We need to do some fundraising to buy as much hay as possible before winter,” she said. “I’m hoping for help from the community…help spread the word to people who love animals.” Rowe said she will be hosting a garage and bake sale to raise funds for hay on Satur-

day, Aug. 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The farm, located at 2494 Dunrobin Rd., will also be open to the public during that time. “For charities like this to survive, we really need community support,” she said. Without additional funding, Rowe said she’s worried she won’t be able to feed the many animals who call her farmland home, and is looking at possibly fostering some of her animals out to other farms so “they have hay over the winter.” EDUCATIONAL

The farm hosted a very successful pilot summer camp last month, said Rowe.

People can also book tours of the farm, where they can visit with and learn about the various animals. “We give people hands-on experience,” said Rowe, adding students can also fulfill their high school volunteer hours through the farm. Holy Trinity Catholic High School student Celeste Filiatreault, 15, and Elsie Levedev, 15, who studies at Cantebury High School, are just two of the more than 20 volunteers who help out around the farm. “They put in huge amounts of hours,” said Rowe about her volunteers.

Ontario asks feds to begin drought relief program

Follow us! @KourierStandard

The province offers a range of production insurance programs, which farmers can choose to pay into like any other insurance program. When disaster strikes, those with insurance can make claims for financial assistance, including interim payments that would be made throughout the season before final losses are calculated. Another program, AgriStability, is an income insurance program that offsets the difference if a farmer’s income is well below his or her annual average. These programs are managed by the Ontario government agency, Agricorp. Another program, AgriInvest, is delivered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and works like a savings ac-

count that farmers can use to cover small income declines or to support investments. They can deposit 1.5 per cent of their net sales each year, which can be withdrawn any time. Newman recognized that the problem with AgriStability and the other provincial programs is that not everyone has bought into them and therefore it may be tricky to treat everyone fairly when it comes to disaster relief. “How are you going to treat people who haven’t signed onto the AgriStability program, to be fair? Because everybody’s in the same boat stress-wise, but I paid $10,000 for crop insurance and you didn’t pay anything,” he said. He suggested that of-

fering relief to everyone while retroactively taking insurance premiums off cheques could be a palatable solution. McMeekin encouraged farmers to call Agricorp and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to discuss their options.

In the meantime, he said the government will continue to monitor the situation. “While it’s too early to know the full implications of the current dry conditions, we are evaluating the situation daily and will continue to do so,” he said.

EMC news - The Ontario government has asked the Harper government to consider a disaster relief program for drought-stricken farmers across the province. Ontario Agriculture Minister Ted McMeekin visited Foster Farms in North Gower on Tuesday, July 31 to announce he has officially asked Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to begin the process of determining which parts of Ontario can quality for financial support through the AgriRecovery disaster relief program, as a result of the extremely hot and dry weather. “Conditions vary across the province,” McMeekin told a small gathering of farmers. “Some areas are reporting excellent crops, while some believe they are facing disaster.” Farmers in areas identified as “prescribed drought regions” will have access to upfront payments to offset their losses and full disaster relief will be paid out once crops are harvested and total losses are calculated. Determining which areas are in a disaster situation will take about 45 days, McMeekin said, but said he has kick-started the process about six weeks earlier than usual in order to help livestock farmers make prudent decisions as soon as possible. “Livestock producers are dealing with dry pastures and reduced hay yields and some are trying to figure out just how they’ll feed their animals this winter,” he said. “It’s a tough situation.” Some farmers are selling cattle so they don’t have to feed them, while others are scrambling to source feed from other parts of the province. Identifying the regions will also allow struggling farmers in those areas to defer part of their sale proceeds to a future tax year. “That’s important if you’re trying to manage through a tough situation,” McMeekin said. He also confirmed that farmers in drought regions will be protected from reductions in their agricultural stability coverage if they are forced to cull part of their breeding stock because of forage shortages. Retired North Gower farmer and Ottawa Cattlemen’s Association secretary John Newman said this announcement is in response to pressure from farmers to make decisions about disaster relief, as they run out of feed and money. “The farmers have all been saying ‘Tell me what you’re going to do,’ and that’s what’s going on today,” he said. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod said McMeekin’s call for AgriRecovery is “two weeks too late.” “He disappointed me, it

took him long to come,” said MacLeod, who said she was “blocked” from the announcement on July 31. “He should have been here two weeks ago. He should have been on the ground assessing it.” Late or not, Newman said the province is on the right track by asking the federal government to step in and begin assessments for disaster relief. “There’s no question that the province is doing the right thing,” he said. McMeekin did not announce any new money for a provincial disaster relief program, but stressed that the province’s “permanent and predictable” relief programs will do their job to protect Ontario farmers.

Vivarium set to be carbon neutral, tree planted for each pledge Continued from page 1

Being part of a Kickstarter campaign is “complementary to the idea and the premise of the film,â€? said Baack, who has pledged more than 30 Kickstarter projects herself. “We want to reach out to people who‌might be excited about the movie themselves and people who are interested in the message.â€? CARBON NEUTRAL

LoneShark, the independent film company behind the movie, must raise just under $60,000 in order to make Vivarium. Backers can pledge funds based on tiers and will receive a variety of rewards, which include a download of the film and a tree planted in the backer’s name, up to executive producer credit and a private screening party. “For less than the value of a movie ticket, you get the movie and a tree planted in your name,â€? she said. “I really encourage people if they want to back the campaign‌ to look at the different levels. We have really exciting rewards.â€? If the goal isn’t reached, no one is charged their pledge. “We’re relaying an important message about conservation and caring about what we have now because we might lose it,â€? said Baack, who grew up in Kanata and attended

NATALIE BAACK Stephen Leacock Elementary School. “It’s something more meaningful than just making an action film where things blow up.� The crew will run a sustainable film set, said Baack, because it’s something they believe in and it keeps with the environmental theme of the movie. “We’re going to make sure that we’re carbon neutral,� she said. “I would encourage people to look at the project because they could see a different kind of action movie. In the process of helping the film get made they could get some trees planted.� As of Aug. 7, the film had more than 100 backers and had raised almost $14,000. The campaign concludes on Aug. 15. AWARD-WINNER

Baack, who used to deliver the Kourier-Standard, moved to New York to find herself in 2004. Having worked at the

AMC Kanata movie theatre, she transferred to the flagship AMC to run the New York theatre’s events and premiere screenings. While there, she was recruited by Motion Picture Group of Ipsos Media CT, to work on major motion pictures as an analyst and film producer. Now living in Los Angeles, Baack most recently produced the award-winning short film The Activist, directed by Phillip Montgomery. The film won Best of the Fest: 2010 LA Shorts Film Fest. “It’s been a real whirlwind,â€? said the 31-year-old, who has a background in audience psychology. “What I really liked, and it’s becoming a bit of a trend for me, is films that tell a story, a good story. “They also have another message; something that we can kind of give back without being preachy.â€? Both The Activist and Vivarium fall into this category. “I myself was starting to feel complacent in the world – what am I doing other than signing petitions online? Producing The Activist was a nice little wake up call for me‌to stand up for what I believe in.â€?

received 313 complaints of thefts from vehicles in the areas of Morgan’s Grant, Glen Cairn, Bridlewood, Stittsville, and other west-end communities. “Four adults and three youths have been charged with theft from vehicles in the west end, but that doesn’t account for all reported incidents,â€? said Mike Rice, inspector of west district investigations. “These thefts are crimes of opportunity. In most cases, police found that owners failed to lock their vehicles.â€? To make vehicles more secure and less likely to be targeted, police suggest following these three crime prevention tips: • Always close windows and lock all doors. • Remove all valuables from the vehicle and if that’s not possible, remove them from view. • Report crime in the neighbourhood. Call police immediately at 613-230-6211 if you see any suspicious persons or activity. More crime prevention tips are available at

There are still a number of blank postcards available. Children are invited to visit the gallery and colour their own piece to be hung on the wall.

EMC news - The Kanata Civic Art Gallery will remain open while the West District Library is being built. Elizabeth Potvin, founding member of the gallery, said she’s worried people will assume the space will be closed when the Beaverbrook library is expanded. Both organizations are located in the Mlacak Centre. Construction is set to begin on the parking lot this fall and the library itself in the spring of 2013. “We want all our friends and supporters to know the gallery will be open during that time of construction,” said Potvin. The gallery, which first opened in 1993, exhibits and promotes local artists, encourages young artists, and provides a venue to make original art readily accessible to the public. People don’t have to go downtown to the National Gallery of Canada to view original art pieces, said Potvin. “This little gallery is a gem,” said the Kanata Lakes resident. “We’re so lucky to have the gallery here.” With so much mass-produced and reproduced art readily available, she said it’s nice to have a local gallery where the public can view unique works. “It would be nice if people would realize that if you have a piece of original art work you will never see it in anyone else’s home.” However, even though the gallery has been in place for years, many people still don’t know it exists. “It’s sad that some people don’t realize it’s here,” said Potvin. “(We need) to get more people to come out and look at the art.”

every month. This month’s showing, titled “Colour Me,” highlights Potvin, who works mainly in watercolours, and abstract acrylic artist Patricia Brander. Bright acrylic colours and pastel watercolour fish and birds greet people as they enter the Mlacak Centre. “Each show artists are invited to showcase their work,” said Potvin. “Everything is original art work.” The hanging will run from Aug. 1 to Sept. 5. “It’s wonderful to get together with like-minded people to share your passion and to provide a place where the public can come to see original art work,” said Potvin. “It’s something I feel very strongly about.” For the first time, the gallery is also hosting a children’s artwork exhibition, called “Colour Me Kids.” The idea was spawned after younger

Investing in cycling will pay dividends


ust how bike friendly is Ottawa? The municipality has certainly been recognized in the past for its network of multi-use paths and cycling infrastructure. In 2010, Ottawa was one of four Canadian municipalities awarded a silver designation in the Bicycle Friendly Community Award Program, sponsored by the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada and Trek Canada. A study released in 2004 showed Ottawa had

the highest percentage of bike commuters among all major municipalities in North America. Nearly three per cent of all Ottawans commuted to work using a bike, according to the study prepared by Market Opinion Research International. The city is hoping to increase the number of trips taken by a bike from 4,500 in 2001 to 12,000 by 2021, an ambitious but obtainable goal – we’re not exactly talking about re-inventing the wheel

here. The city is on the right path with its 20-year plan to improve cycling infrastructure and educate both cyclists and motorists alike. Ottawa is a geographically large city, with more than 6,000 kilometres of roads, 1,500 kilometres of sidewalks, 300 kilometres of multi-use pathways and 150 kilometres of on-road cycling facilities, The city’s cycling plan aims to make biking to work a more attractive option by

increasing the number of bike lanes, paved shoulders, wide-curb lanes on multi-lane roads and off-road pathways maintained by both the city and the National Capital Commission. This week, Metroland Media presents the first of a two-part series on commuting in Ottawa by bicycle. The reporters tested four mostly off-road cycling routes from different parts of the city: Kanata, OrlĂŠans, Nepean and Barrhaven. For the most part, the team

was pleasantly surprised by how little time they had to spend on roads sharing lanes with fast-moving traffic. Both the city and the NCC possess an impressive network of off-route multi-use paths across Ottawa-Gatineau. But there is definitely room for improvement. Namely, connecting broken cycling links, improving signage and creating more bike-only lanes. Let’s face it, one of the biggest fears people have is sharing the road with fast-moving vehicles. Our team of cycling reporters encountered bike lanes that suddenly ended and prob-

lems travelling on roads with other traffic near highway exit and entrance ramps. Some of the cyclists we interviewed complained about sharing narrow lanes with other vehicles and streets missing bike lanes. But in general, the cyclists we spoke to said they enjoyed travelling to work – especially while travelling on the multiuse pathways maintained by the city and the NCC. Ottawa’s investment in its cycling infrastructure will pay dividends over the coming years by convincing more motorists to park their cars and instead enjoy a leisurely cycle to work.


The last taboo BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse


hate breastfeeding. There you have it: The one thing you’re not allowed to say in our culture. We can talk sex, drugs and rock n’ roll, but no one is allowed to say “I hate breastfeeding� at a time when public health, the hospitals, the midwives, the World Health Organization and your mother-in-law advocate breastfeeding for up to two years of baby’s life. But I hate it. And here’s why. Just the other night, I spent an hour waking my 10-day-old baby from a most glorious evening nap. (She’s a bit sleepy and the consultants – yes, they have highly paid consultants for breastfeeding – told me I had to feed her a minimum of every three hours ‘round the clock. Strike one for breastfeeding.) I gave her a bath, tickled her toes, and got her completely naked, all while she slept peacefully. When she finally woke up after three-quarters of an hour of terrible abuse, I spent the next 45 minutes trying to latch a screaming, red, naked thing on to a painfully full breast to no avail. (Strike two for breastfeeding). I then danced around the living room half naked to Lullabies of the World for a quarter of an hour (strike three), only to trick her into suckling while we were still moving. I finally sat down in the designated breastfeeding chair, which has become a near-permanent part of my butt due to the 17 hours each day I spend there (strike four). I was sweaty and exhausted, but fully prepared to look down at baby’s gorgeous little face and coach her through the feed. Would you

believe it? There was Little Darling with her left hand beside her cheek, and I kid you not, she was flipping me the bird. (Strike five.) No doubt about it, breastfeeding really sucks. (Pun intended.) You can call me selfish – and I’m sure you will – but frankly, I have better things to do than sit in a chair for an hour every two hours and tickle the toes of a sleepy baby. I could be working, exercising, playing with my other children, or cooking a meal. Crikey, in 17 hours a day, I could be writing the world’s greatest novel! But nope, there’s me, tethered to a chair, attempting to nourish the baby and watching basic cable to take the edge of the boredom. This is the third time I’ve done this, so it’s not a matter of novelty. I stuck it out with the other two because of the purported health benefits for both mother and baby, despite the fact I believe some of them to be overblown. Sure nursing a baby helps your uterus to contract post-birth, for example. But frankly, what’s come off my middle has certainly just been tacked on to my rear end, on which I sit all day. Can we say pear-shaped? I may be the only one bold enough to say it out loud, but I know there are other moms thinking daily about how much they hate breastfeeding. In fact, just the other day, a friend and first-time mother had this to say on Facebook: “Everyone talks about pregnancy and cravings. No one tells u about hunger, feeding a baby, no time for food and a feed/sleep schedule. I just ate a cob of corn standing beside the garbage after it sat in a pot cold for 6 hrs in under 3 minutes.� And that, my friends, is the reality of a breastfeeding mother. I haven’t even touched on the pumping, wet face cloths, cracked nipples and such. Believe me, there’s nothing glamorous about this exercise, despite public health’s attempts to make you think so. For the sake of a few dollars and the potential to ward off cancer, I’ll keep going for the moment. But if Little Darling flips me the bird again, I may just have to get out the bottles.

Ottawa set to get ‘smarter’

EMC news - A group of experts will be arriving in Ottawa on Sept. 11 to give the city advice on how to turn the new light-rail stations into hubs of development. It’s part of informationtechnology giant IBM’s Smarter Cities Challenge that was announced on March 15 and Ottawa is one of two Canadian cities that was selected. Details are set to be released later this month, but city spokesperson Jocelyne Turner confirmed a group of experts would be in Ottawa from Sept. 11 to Oct. 3 to advise on what the city must do to attract residential, office and retail development to the 13 transit stations planned between Tunney’s Pasture and Blair for the forthcoming LRT line. It’s called transit-oriented development and it’s already the top priority for the city’s planning department over the

next couple of years. In March, planning committee chairman Peter Hume said it is “critical” to create land-use and economic development plans that will turn the areas around those stations into high-density hubs. “If we don’t have development around those stations that is driving the ridership, (LRT) is not going to be successful,” Hume said. The experts sent by IBM will crunch numbers and engage stakeholders to see if the city is on the right track when it comes to creating market interest in developing the transit hubs. The study could recommend whether public investment is required to meet the needs of the current – and future – population of the city. At the very least, new ideas are worth hearing about, Hume said when the project was announced and a fresh set of eyes will bring a new perspective to the process. Ottawa and Surrey, B.C., are the two Canadian cities among the 100 worldwide selected for the 2012 Smarter Cities Challenge. Since it began in 2011, cities such as St. Louis, Philadelphia, Helsinki and Sapporo, Japan have utilized similar expertise from IBM.

EMC news - The Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association, a not for profit corporation responsible for operating and delivering services from the Constance and Buckham’s Bay community centre, is celebrating 40 years in the community with a 12-day extravaganza from Aug. 23 to Sept. 3. Coun. Eli El-Chantiry will serve as honorary co-chair for Project Sandhills. Project Sandhills is a partnership project of the City of Ottawa’s parks and recreation department, the Ottawa Library Board, the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association (CBBCA), and Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. The first phase of the $2million project will address the infrastructure required to fulfill many of the community’s top priorities through a 418 square metre addition to the Constance Bay Community Centre. The addition includes a

ing to help us reach our goal. While Eli was an easy choice, the other one is much more challenging.� The project has transformed the CBBCA’s “Bay Days� fair at the end of August. Originally billed as a classic village celebration of the community’s 90-year history, the event has become a major element in the fundraising effort. Project Sandhills, formally approved in June, has brought out an army of volunteers making it possible to expand almost every element of the fair. Growing to 12 days, the event now has fireworks shows planned, in addition to the marquis performance by the 15-member swing band Standing Room Only, internationally recognized cover bands like the Stephen Thomas Band and Billboard and Juno artists such as David Gogo and Ottawa’s Cooper Brothers are in the line-up.

new library, which will be three times larger than the current, heavily used, facility. The second phase will be focused on programming, health, services, and a 93 square metre renovation to provide dedicated space to the area’s burgeoning teen and senior populations. El-Chantiry will lead the campaign to deliver the community’s $733,000 contribution to the project. To meet the project’s aggressive time line – construction in 2013 – the community has only 12 months to raise $633,000. At this time the campaign’s private sector co-chair has not been named; Ian Glen, president of the CBBCA, said he expects this will take at least another month. “We have a challenging financial target to meet so the choice of co-chair is very important. This project and its co-chairs will leave an indelible and historic mark on the community and we are fortunate to have many civic minded and philanthropic community members will-

Keeping the peace

Laura Mueller/Metroland

Kanata resident Ross Bannerman was one of the people gathered to watch as the schooner Lois McClure ascended the Ottawa Locks. The replica of a 19th century commercial boat arrives in Ottawa on Aug. 1 as part of a four-month tour to celebrate 200 years of peace between Canada and the United States following the War of 1812. It took 90 minutes for a tugboat to pull the Lois McClure through the series of eight locks where the Rideau Canal meets the Ottawa River beside Parliament Hill.

EMC news - Ottawa paramedics treated two female workers for smoke inhalation at a retirement home in south Kanata on Tuesday, Aug. 7. Paramedics responded just before 5 a.m. after smoke was reported in the kitchen area of the retirement residence, located on Castlefrank Road. It is believed that rags in the kitchen may have caught on fire, said J.P. Trottier, spokesperson for the paramedics. The female workers, one 52 years old, the other age 55, were transported to hospital, where they are in stable condition, he said.

War, Civilization exhibits travel across Canada Kristy Strauss

EMC news - Nicolas Gauvin wants to make sure the collections at the Canadian War Museum and the Museum of Civilization are accessible to everyone - whether or not they live in Ottawa. “There’s a national museum in Ottawa with a big collection and so much knowledge,” said Gauvin, director, traveling exhibitions, planning and partnerships with the Canadian War Museum.

“We want (visitors) to discover the richness of our history without making a special trip to Ottawa.” Gauvin said he’s been with the museum for almost 12 years, and said it has always had traveling exhibitions to other communities. This year, exhibits from the museums will visit locations from coast-to-coast. Some of the exhibits include Profit and Ambition at The Exploration Place in Prince George, B.C., which retraces the rise and fall of the

Montreal-based North West Company - a commercial empire that pushed fur trade routes to the Pacific Ocean. Another exhibit will head to the Winnipeg Art Gallery, where visitors will be able to see Inuit Prints: Japanese Inspiration - which shows rare Inuit and Japanese prints from the late 1950s and early 1960s. At the Musée maritime du Québec in the municipality of L’Islet, Expedition: Arctic will be making its debut. It shows the triumphs and

tragedies of the Canadian Arctic Expedition of 1913 to 1918. HONOURING 1812

As the War Museum honours the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, it will also have an exhibit at the Penetanguishene Centennial Museum and Archives in Penetanguishene, Ont. The exhibit shows a new and dramatic account of the War of 1812 as seen through the eyes of all the war’s partic-

ipants: Canadians, Americans, British and Native American people. Gauvin said it’s a good opportunity for the museums in Ottawa to work with others across the country. “We can travel almost anywhere,” he said. “I must admit, I’m very proud of our Canadian services and the efforts we’re taking to be more accessible to (visitors). “We’re making the effort to reach out to people everywhere, especially in Canada,

NICOLAS GAUVIN and we are preparing projects that are very interesting that people can see wherever they are.”

City Councillor, Kanata North UPDATE ON THE OTTAWA LIGHT RAIL PROJECT (OLRT) There has been a lot of discussion on what’s happening with the plans for LRT. The first phase is from Blair to Tunneys Pasture with a tunnel through the downtown. The City has recently received Federal Environmental Assessment approval for this phase of the project. Work to achieve Federal Environmental Assessment approval began in earnest in March 2010. With this announcement the federal government now joins the provincial government, which granted its environmental assessment approval in August 2010. The OLRT project is currently in the Request-for-Proposals (RFP) phase of the procurement process. Three world class consortia have been shortlisted to compete for the project contract, which are due on Sept. 10th. Council is scheduled to ratify the winner in late 2012. Construction of the OLRT project would begin in early 2013. The province is moving forward on widening the 417 in the east and has committed to providing the two new lanes to the City to be used for buses from the east while rail is being installed in the existing transitway. In the west several local roads will be used for the same purpose. The City of Ottawa’s Light Rail Transit Art Program invites professional artists to submit their qualifications by Sept. 6th at 4 pm to be considered for various permanent public art opportunities throughout the future OLRT line. From the resulting adjudicated shortlist of artists, artists will be considered to create fully integrated, permanent works of art for Ottawa’s Light Rail stations. You can find details at

The OLRT project will generate over $3.2 billion in economic activity and 20,000 person-years of employment during construction alone. Once built, the system will carry in excess of 10,000 people per hour per direction during the morning rush hour and save transit riders up to 15 minutes from their daily commutes.

Harvest Table

The route for the OLRT west from Tunney’s Pasture is presently undergoing an environmental assessment. A total of 15 possible routes are being examined with a final recommendation to be received in about a year. There will be public meetings on the results of the assessment in 2013 before the final recommendation goes to Council for implementation in the Master Transportation Plan.

tried everything that educators and specialists offered, and I mean everything. I spent thousands of dollars doing it.” Nigi said specialists were able to diagnose the symptoms but offered little in the way of support. “They were never able to give me anything helpful to actually overcome it,” he said. “It was only after joining the workforce that I realized I wasn’t stupid.” He went back to college in his 20s to learn fine-furniture making – working with his hands and working with tools was something he was good at. One day, a teacher put a name to his problem. “My teacher said, ‘Look, Carl, you are dyslexic,’” Nigi said, adding an official diagnosis was the only thing that saved him from failing the course. At age 21, Nigi was officially diagnosed as severely dyslexic, but he didn’t find the help he needed until 18 years later.


Nigi was 39 years old when he found help with the Davis Dyslexia Correction program. The program was developed by Ron Davis – a severely dyslexic adult – to correct reading learning disabilities. Now Nigi is a facilitator. The program offers help for people diagnosed with a number of learning disabilities, including learning math and writing, attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD). “It gets to the root cause of dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, non verbal learning disabilities,” he said. “We use (the word) dyslexia because it was the first name ever given to what people now call languagebased learning disabilities.” See PROGRAM, page 23

Program helps kids read and succeed

Jessica Cunha/Metroland

Carl Nigi uses clay figures to help people master their dyslexia. Continued from page 22

The program boasts a 97 per cent success rate, said 44-year-old Nigi, who now runs Overcoming Dyslexia in Kanata. “Helping other dyslexics so they didn’t have to have my experiences is a positive thing,” Nigi said. ‘BRILLIANT’

Leah Edwards knew her sons were struggling with traditional learning. Both Blair, 16, and Kyle, 18, had learned their alphabet and knew their colours before starting school. But once they entered the classroom, they started to fall behind. “As soon as they started school, they forgot all of that,” she said, adding they were diagnosed with ADD and put on what she called a “huge amount of medication.” “It was a band-aid,” Edwards said. “My children weren’t wild…just a lot of trouble and difficulties at school.” Edwards found out about Nigi’s program about a year ago when she was taking her eldest to scuba diving lessons at the Nepean Sportsplex. Before starting the program, “Blair was (reading) at a soft Grade 2 (level),” said Edwards. “By the end of his first day he was at a mid-Grade 7 level. Not only had he learned the alphabet, he’d mastered the alphabet.” When the family went out to celebrate Kyle’s 18th birthday this year, Blair read the menu for the first time, said Edwards, adding it was a big accomplishment. As for Kyle, he is heading off to King Campus for college for underwater commercial skills this fall, one of 40 students selected worldwide. “If someone had ever told me that Kyle would be med free, I would have told you, you were on crack,” said Edwards, adding both sons are off medications. “We are really thrilled that he has these skills, we know he’s going to be successful.” She added that before the program, Kyle wouldn’t have been able to attend post-secondary school away from home because of his lack of focus. Now, she isn’t worried that he will have to take care of himself. “It’s not just an academic program; it’s a life skills program,” she said. “It really sets them up…they will thrive instead of just getting by.”

She added the program is not an instant fix and those taking the program have to want to be there. “It’s not a cake walk,” Edwards said, adding the family generally works on four to five words a session, twice a week. Despite that, she said it’s the best decision the family ever made. “I love the program, I’m glad we did it,” said Edwards. “It is the best thing I ever did for my kids.” TOOLS FOR SUCCESS

In his first year as a facilitator, Nigi said he came across a 12-year-old boy who was about three years behind his grade level when it came to reading. “When I asked about problems in schools, he said, ‘Well, I don’t know. I think I’ve got

brain damage or something,’” said Nigi, adding the boy’s admission hurt him emotionally. By the end of the one-week program, Nigi had the boy reading at his grade level. “It gives them tools that they can basically understand and overcome the problems of their dyslexia, or ADD, or ADHD and give them understanding and success. And that’s far bigger than a cure,” said Nigi. Dyslexics are usually visual, multi-dimensional thinkers, who are highly creative, said Nigi, adding that’s why the Davis program calls dyslexics gifted. “Creativity is the way dyslexics learn, the way they think. If someone is highly skilled and creative we call them gifted,” he said. “If we try to cure dyslexia, really cure it, it would be like trying to cure somebody of their sense of humour.” However, Nigi said he finds he is often contacted as a last resort. “That’s usually what I find, people come try me after they’ve tried everything else and it’s failed.” Nigi treated a 14-year-old male who was reading at a Grade 2 level. He had been diagnosed with ADD and put on medications. “I had him reading at a good Grade 7, soft Grade 8, and that’s just in one week,” he

said, adding the teen was able to go off his medications. He said the boy’s mother was thrilled, and called to let Nigi know that, “His worst days after the program are like his best days on medication.”

Allan Hubley Positive Change for Kanata South


Nigi said dyslexia is often misunderstood in the traditional education system. Students may be labeled as inattentive, lazy, or as a problem child. “These kids are being marginalized, (they’re) not given enough help in school,” he said. “A non dyslexic telling a dyslexic what their experience is going to be is a little like a man telling a woman what her experience in pregnancy is going to be,” said Nigi. “I can’t give her the benefit of my wisdom because I don’t have any.” The Davis program offers insight from the point of view of a dyslexic. “What the program says is this isn’t a disability. It’s actually a talent – a perceptual talent. If we do some very simple things and practice some very simple things we can actually overcome it,” said Nigi, dyslexics of all ages. “The disability part becomes a thing of the past.” For more information, visit

Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, August 9, 2012 23

REAL ESTATE Make the most of small bathrooms Renovating bathrooms is commonly at the top of home improvement to-do lists. Though some rooms around the house may remain timeless, bathrooms, like kitchens, show their age (and era) much more easily, which could be why homeowners are always on the lookout for new ideas. Although many people may dream about creating a spa-type oasis in their homes, not everyone is lucky enough to have a large bathroom, much less a large budget for a full-scale renovation. Small

bathrooms are common, particularly in older homes, but they needn’t force homeowners to compromise on style when renovating. Small bathrooms may be a half-bath on a main home level or even a full bath, depending on the home. By thinking creatively, homeowners can maximize their spaces and redo bathrooms in ways that bring out their best assets. * When space is at a premium, it’s best to look for fixtures and items that fit with the scale of the bathroom. AlR0011532873

Tillie Bastien Sales Rep.


though you may want a large vanity and cabinet in which to hide all of your toiletries, this simply may not be practical -- taking up most of the bathroom real estate. Instead, look for elegant pedestal sinks that have a much smaller profile. They’ll also help you control the clutter in the bathroom because there won’t be anywhere to hide it. * Use optical illusions to make the bathroom appear more roomy. For example, lay tile diagonally to create the impression of space. A large mirror will reflect the room back and make it appear much larger than it really is. * Select lighter hues in paint colors and accessories.

Dark paints and fixtures could make the room feel cramped. Dark colors are generally used to make spaces feel more cozy. In a small bathroom, it may make the space feel claustrophobic. Instead, think light and bright and the room will instantly feel more airy. * Minimize wall hangings and keep fixtures smaller. Filling the walls with knickknacks may contribute to clutter and make the space appear closed in. Use decorative items sparingly. * If possible, store towels in a closet outside of the bathroom. This way you won’t have to devote space inside the bathroom to a closet, leaving more room for other things.

* While some people like the thought of a separate bath and shower, in smaller bathrooms this may not be possible. Instead, look for a combined shower and bath, or select a walk-in shower with a much smaller profile. * Windows are often welcome in bathrooms because of the ventilation they provide, but they could be a hindrance in smaller bathrooms because they take up prime wall space. Cover a window in a shower stall to free up space. Just be sure to install a venting fan to reduce moisture in the bathroom. * Maximize wall space if you need storage. Find cabinets that will fit beneath windows or be able to fit in thin areas between sinks and toi-

lets. Over the toilet is prime area for cabinetry. * Consider a frameless shower. This is a partitioned area of the bathroom that’s set aside for the shower and is typically only cordoned off by a thin wall or piece of glass. Or a shower with no walls at all is the ultimate in spacesaving. The entire bathroom floor is decked out in tile, and a portion is sloped toward a shower drain. * Think about installing a skylight if you prefer natural light, but there is no room for a traditional window. Thinking creatively can help turn a cramped bathroom into a space-saving and welldesigned room homeowners desire.

New owner of former Torbolton Public School looking for tenants Theresa Fritz

EMC news – The former Torbolton Public School has been given a new lease on life. The school and its surrounding property, located at 3924 Woodkilton Rd. in Woodlawn, have sat idle since September 2007 when the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board closed the school as part of its accommodation review of schools in West Carleton. It was subsequently declared surplus and put up

for sale. A conditional offer on the property was accepted by the school board last summer, but that deal fell through. And the property continued to gather dust. But all that changed last week when Marc Desjardins signed on the dotted line making him the new owner of the 1,588-square-metre facility and five hectares of land. Originally priced at $350,000, Desjardins said the school board’s desire to divest itself of the property, and its great potential, made it an

attractive buy for him. “The school board cut the price in half,” he admitted while touring the site last week. “It really was just a matter of the price being right.” As he investigated the viability of the former school, he was pleased to learn the electrical and septic system for the property were in good shape. But there is some work to do and he said he plans to install a geothermal heating and cooling system in the building. Desjardins is a mechanical

engineer by trade and owns his own company called Kanata Air Balancing Engineering Services. He purchased the school under his company. He is excited about the potential of the old school and believes there is a bright future ahead for the facility. He hopes to rent space out to a variety of tenants. “There are a lot of positives about this place,” Desjardins noted. “Someone has to make it work. I want to make it work.” The school building, built in 1963, with an addition put

on in 1972, features multiple classrooms, administration offices, washrooms, library and storage utility rooms. It is currently zoned institutional. “It is not my intention to rezone it. I am willing to make it work with the current zoning,” he said, adding uses such as a private school, day care or Montessori school are all possiblities. “If the city is interested in rezoning to make it (work), I am interested in that too but that is not where I am at right now.” Desjardins is no stranger to the area. While he grew up

in the east end of Ottawa, his family had a cottage in Constance Bay and his brother was the owner of the former Woodlawn Building Supplies. Desjardins himself lives on Second Line Road in rural March. Desjardins is eager to meet his neighbours around the school property and believes the building is part of the community. “I do want to get the information out that the school has been sold,” he concluded. “I do want to keep it open to the community.”

EMC entertainment – The Upper Canada Playhouse presents the comedy Wife Begins at Forty, running until Aug. 26. “Call it a seven-year itch, a mid-life crisis or just a case of a change is as good as a rest, but The Playhouse’s next hilarious comedy, Wife Begins at Forty, by Arne Sultan, Earl Barret and Ray Cooney, is all about a marriage on the rocks,” said the Playhouse in a release. Set in suburbia, main character Linda Harper wants a change, much to the surprise of husband George, who hasn’t tuned in to his wife’s frustration and tries every way he can to satisfy her. Even the best efforts of neighbours Roger and Betty Dixon can’t help rescue the marriage. George agrees to move out to give Linda some space and a chance to find herself. Returning to the household

to spend Christmas with his family, George hopes to be received with open arms, only to find that everyone, including son Leonard, granddad Bernard and the family dog have continued on quite happily. His last ditch efforts to get the romance and marriage back on track result in a hilarious scene that will leave audiences howling with laughter. Starring real-life couple Brian Young and Alison Lawrence, and joined by Walter Learning, Melanie Janzen, Kyle Oezech and Richard Bauer, who also directs, Wife Begins at Forty will leave the audience laughing. The Upper Canada Playhouse is located at highway 2 & 31, Morrisburg. Wife Begins at Forty runs Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. and Tuesdays to Saturdays at 8 p.m. Tickets run from $21 to $32.

Boys of summer Blair Edwards

EMC sports - Hundreds of little league baseball players turned out for the 17th annual Scott Tokessy Memorial Gold Glove Tournament held in Kanata from Aug. 3 to 5. Five of the 34 teams competing in the nation’s largest little league tournament were from south Ottawa. Games were held at seven ball diamonds in Kanata. To date, the charity baseball tournament has raised

$255,000 for CHEO’s cardiology department to fund research and the purchase of equipment. Fred Bartlet, former chairperson of CHEO, accepted a cheque for $10,000 from this year’s event on behalf of the children’s hospital. The tournament started in 1996 in memory of 11-yearold Scott Tokessy, who died three days before his 12th birthday from an irregular heart beat after hitting a home run during a baseball game.

Too little, too late? Group worries that city’s extra emerald ash borer funding won’t be used in time Laura Mueller

EMC news - A local group is urging the city – and fellow residents – to act now before it’s too late to protect ash trees from insect devastation. The city recently pledged an additional $1 million to combat the emerald ash borer, a type of beetle that is killing trees across the city. But that $1 million is going to go to waste if the city doesn’t act soon, according to the Greenspace Alliance. The advocacy group is pushing the city to earmark at least 75 per cent of the new funding towards TreeAzin injections that can protect ash trees from the effects of the EAB for about two years. That amount of money could save an additional 3,000 trees in Ottawa that would otherwise die and have to be chopped down. However, injections must be done before Aug. 31 to be effective, according to Paul Bolan, vice president and operations manager at BioForest Technologies, the company

that produces TreeAzin in Canada. But since making the funding announcement on July 8, the city has been mum on what exactly it plans to do with the money, said Sol Shuster, chairman of the Greenbelt Alliance’s emerald ash borer working group, in a statement. The city has told the group it will announce plans for the money sometime in August, but that leads Shuster to worry the money will mostly be used to cut down and dispose of infected ash trees, instead of trying to save them before September. City staff have the authority to decide how the money for the emerald ash borer strategy is spent, said city spokeswoman Nikki Eaton. But the city refused to provide any detail or breakdown of how the money is being spent, other than that the money allows for an “enhanced plan that includes additional measures.” “There is currently no solid breakdown to provide,” Eaton wrote in an email. “The key is that staff doesn’t need to come back to the (environ-

ment) committee with a plan before they spend the additional funds. The extra money is going to be incorporated into the existing emerald ash borer strategy which includes both tree planting and tree injections.” The city’s forestry department will present to environment committee and council at a later date, likely in the fall, to report how it spent the money, Eaton wrote. There are 10 tree-care companies in Ottawa that can provide TreeAzin treatments and the city could still make an impact through treating trees if it adds more of those contractors to its approved list and sends them all to work in the last few weeks of August. If it’s not done, thousands of city ash trees will be dead by spring, Shuster said. File


Residents can step in to save a tree, too. The city is allowing citizens to pay for TreeAzin treatments for cityowned trees infected with the emerald ash borer. It costs about $250 per tree to treat with TreeAzin. That treatment is good for two years and experts believe that treatments can be discontinued after six to 10 years. There are also other treatments on the horizon, such as

Carpenter John Howarth, bottom left, is dwarfed by the growing pile of downed ash trees at the Trail Road landfill. The city is piling up trees infested with emerald ash borers that could spread to nearby ash trees. introducing a small, stingless parasitoid wasp, or a fungal pathogen that can kill the emerald ash borer, according to Meg Sears, another member of the Greenbelt Alliance ash borer working group. Prolonging the lives of significant but infected ash trees could allow another treatment to be used once it is discovered.

Saving trees has many benefits, according to the Greenspace Alliance. Mature trees provide habitats for wildlife, improve air quality, provide cooling shade to reduce energy costs and boost property values. The emerald ash borer was first observed in Ottawa in 2008 and poses a threat to

25 per cent of the city’s tree canopy. The Greenspace Alliance has set up a website with information about the emerald ash borer at saveourashtrees. ca. There is also information on the city’s website,, which can be found by searching for “emerald ash borer.”

Students stop in Ottawa as part of cross-country bike trek Group aims to promote sustainability and inspire other youth to help protect the environment Kristy Strauss


EMC news - Graham May needs to get back to school in New Brunswick by September, but he wanted to do it in the most sustainable way possible - that is, biking from British Columbia as part of the GrassRoutes Tour. “I wanted to get to school in a sustainable way,” said the British Columbia native, who stopped in Ottawa with four of his fellow cyclists on Aug. 1 and 2. Along the way, May and fellow cyclists Louis Plottel of NYU Abu Dhabi, Georgia Williams of Langara College in Vancouver and Cello

Mizumoto of College of the Atlantic in Maine have given presentations and workshops to youth to try and promote sustainability and inspire youth to take steps to protect the environment in their own communities. “It’s been incredible,” said Plottel. “We get to experience the country with all of our senses. You see and feel everything.” The group left the tour in Victoria and has been aiming to bike about 100 kilometres a day. The team is also raising money for a Youth Action Fund which goes to support youth-led initiatives in Canada and Britain. The team hopes

to leave a trail of youth-led projects across Canada that benefit the environment. May’s school, Mount Allison University, is also supporting the tour with a $600 grant through Leadership Mount Allison. While May said there has been positive aspects of seeing parts of the country he wouldn’t normally see, like northern Ontario, the group has its daily challenges. Mizumoto said it’s important for everyone to feel well and get enough sleep. “There are some days when it’s raining or the weather isn’t good or you didn’t get enough sleep and that affects the group dynamic,” she said. To get through some of the daily challenges, Williams said it’s important to set small goals. “You have to break it down,” she said. The group said they were happy to arrive in Ottawa and were even able to take a day off and enjoy the city. They said they found Ottawa easy to ride through, especially with the city’s bike paths and even the drivers. “Drivers in Toronto do not share the road,” Williams laughed, adding Ottawa was a much better experience.

From left Graham May, Louis Plottel, Georgia Williams and Cello Mizumoto have been biking across Canada to raise awareness of environmental protection. They stopped in Ottawa Aug. 1 and 2. May added that it felt good to make the stop in Ottawa, especially after the long trip they’ve had so far.

“It’s the symbolism of being here,” he said. “It’s the last leg, and it’s a really cool city.”

Ride the Rideau, Eastern Ontario’s most successful cancer fundraiser

Fury defender named W-League Championship MVP Ottawa Fury Women defender Kathryn Williamson receives the Most Valuable Player honours from Amanda Duffy, senior director of the W-League on July 29. Williamson was recognized for her outstanding, consistent and reliable play in the finals that saw the Ottawa Fury win the championship for the first time in 13 years.

Robertson also found that she got to know some of the riders. “Because it’s for cancer research, the ride is very emotional for some people,” she said. “It’s heartwrenching to hear what some people have gone through. Sometimes, people just need someone to listen.” Robertson enjoyed her Ride the Rideau volunteer experience so much that she will be returning as a Ride Guide for the third year. She takes pride in being at the back of the pack, because that is where she makes the biggest difference. “These riders are supporting cancer research, so they deserve our support,” she said. On September 8, join Elaine Robertson as a Ride the Rideau volunteer. Visit www. for more information.

It might sound a bit unusual, but avid cyclist Elaine Robertson takes pleasure in finishing last. Three years ago, Robertson volunteered with the inaugural Ride the Rideau, a 100 km cycling fundraiser held in support of cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital. Ride the Rideau has since grown to become Eastern Ontario’s most successful single-day cancer fundraiser, raising $2.7 million in just two years. Last year’s event drew more than 715 riders, and this year’s event is expected to top that. “It’s a great cause,” said Robertson, a Nepean-area resident who is also a member of the Kanata-Nepean Bicycle Club. “The Ottawa Hospital is a cause close to home and the money stays here, so it’s a great, efficient fundraiser. And so many people benefit from it.” Robertson found her calling on that first Ride Day in 2010. “I enjoyed being in the back, riding with people who needed it the most,” she said. “A lot of them have bikes that aren’t so great. In the first year, one poor guy was having a really hard time, and his bike didn’t fit him very well. But he had a great attitude. And last year, the last finisher had one disaster after another. Her tires blew, but she wanted to finish, and she did. “People who can pull off a 100 km ride in two hours are more like racers,” she added. “It’s the people who haven’t gone that distance before that need us.”

EMC news - Ottawa is posting big successes for cyclists, according to an advo-

cacy group’s new report. For the first time ever, Ottawa group Citizens for Safe Cycling published a “state of cycling in the city report,” and president Hans Moor said

initiative will be followed up this year by another simple improvement to Rideau Canal access: the installation of a bike ramp attached to the stairs at Hartwell Locks to allow cyclists to get up and down from the path – an access that is used by thousands of people during the National Capital Commission’s Sunday Bike Days in the summer. “Small things like that are so easy and such big wins for the city,” Moor said. “I think with the wonderful connections we have with the city now we can actually convince them and say, ‘Take these three or four (improvements), put them in place and all of a sudden you I make thousands of people happy for next to I nothing.’”

from council, to see cycling as a serious alternative for taking the car. It’s becoming more of an ‘and-and’ than an ‘eitheror.’” Ottawa has many kilometers of bicycle lanes and paths, but they are not necessarily connected to each other, Moor said. He supports Mayor Jim Watson’s assertion that the city can get “more bang for its buck” by undertaking small projects to better connect existing cycling facilities. “You don’t have to roll out expensive new bike lanes through forests,” Moor said. “You just connect two pieces and all of a sudden people start to say, ‘Hey, I can actually do all this without sharing the lane with traffic.’” Last year, the small improvement that had the biggest impact was new markings to allow cyclists to use an underpass under Nicholas Street at the University of Ottawa, near Campus Station, that connects Sandy Hill to the Corkstown footbridge and west to Centretown, Moor said. The “hugely successful”

ities related to cycling, modal split trends and the “top 10” lists of issues that should be addressed and problems that the group has brought up in the past and that have now been addressed. The state of cycling report represents the evolution of that analysis, Moor said. It’s the most comprehensive snapshot of cycling in Ottawa, he said, because it combines information from different sources and jurisdictions such as the National Capital Commission, which manages most of the off-road pathways, and the city. “We’re always scrambling for this information ourselves,” Moor said. “We’re always asking, ‘Where is this? What are the numbers and is it true they are growing?’ … There are several jurisdictions here and no one publication that gathers this information.” The report looks at modal splits – the ratio of people driving versus cycling. In most areas, the cycling share is increasing, but Citizens for Safe Cycling found that far fewer people are cycling in certain areas such as Beacon Hill, Merivale, south Nepean and Alta Vista. That information will enable the advocacy group to look into what’s causing those decreases and how cycling facilities could be improved in those neighbourhoods. As the amount of cycling facilities increase and encourage cyclists to get on the roads and paths, drivers are becoming more aware of cy-I clists around them, and that’sI a huge win, Moor said. “I feel that the perceivedI difference between cycling and cars is getting less and less,” Moor said. “I think there is more acceptance of each other’s place on the road.”

EMC news- Ottawa boasts it is one of the most cyclingfriendly cities in Canada. With good reason – in 2004, the municipality had the highest percentage of bike commuters among all major municipalities in North America. Nearly three per cent of all Ottawans commuted to work using a bicycle, according to

Your Community Newspaper

Cycling the capital the study, prepared by Market Opinion Research International. Hopefully that number will grow, according to the city’s 20-year cycling master plan, which aims to make biking to work a more attractive option by increasing the number of bike lanes, paved shoulders, wide curb lanes on multi-lane roads and off-road pathways, maintained by both the city

and the National Capital Commission. Metroland Media decided to check out just how bicycle-friendly Ottawa really is, sending a group of reporters out to test four mostly off-road cycling routes from different parts of the municipality to Ottawa City Hall. The four routes start from Kanata, Orléans, Nepean and Barrhaven.

All four reporters are novice cyclists and plotted as direct a route as possible but avoided busy streets and traffic as much as possible, making generous use of the NCC’s and the city’s off-road multiuse pathways. Starting this week, Cycling the Capital, a two-part series, will explore a variety of issues dealing with the topic of cycling to work, including the

push to create cycling links throughout the city and prioritize the use of bikes as a mode of transportation, and a look at the impact of road construction on cyclists. Our series will also explore the importance of education – of both cyclists and motorists – and ways the city can make cycling a more comfortable option. We’ll meet with groups who

Re-cycling the Kanata commute Blair Edwards

EMC news – Dogs worship me. I discovered my role as a canine deity earlier this year while commuting to work by bike, travelling through the dog-walking Mecca known as Bruce Pitts, a park located near West Hunt Club Road and Highway 416. Every morning, during my 7 a.m.-ish commute they’d be waiting for me, lined up along the wire-metal fence separating the multi-purpose path from the dog-walking area. German shepherds, terriers, mutts, Chihuahuas, their noses pressed against the wire, tounges unrolled and mouths watering as they barked adoration at my passing. At least I like to think it was adoration. Perhaps they knew I was a novice cyclist embarking on a 20-kilometre commute from Kanata to Colonnade Road in Nepean; the distance seemed like an impressive number when I first started cycling. According to city data, most commuters travel a distance of no more than eight kilometres. But there are a number of cyclists who travel longer distances, journeying from the suburbs to the downtown core. On Wednesday, July 25, I made the trek from Bridlewood to Ottawa City Hall, using a 27-kilometre route I found on Google Maps. The idea was to choose a route that avoided roads with fast-moving traffic as much as possible. Some cyclists are comfortable on roads with cars and trucks. I’m not one of them. Over the objections of my co-workers I dressed myself with sweat-shedding clothing, which to their horror included form-fitting bicycle shorts. My bike was fitted with saddle bags, handy for carrying clothing, a wallet, keys, money – everything I would need to carry me through a work day. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring water (more on that later). My route started at the information kiosk on the Trans-

are opposed to the city’s push to create more segregated bike lanes such as the 1.3-kilometre stretch recently introduced on Laurier Avenue.

Detours cater to motorists: cyclists

Canada Trail, near Shetland Park and Eagleson Road. The trail passes through a beautiful wooded area, passing south of Old Quarry Trail, a nature trail maintained by the National Capital Commission, used by cyclists, runners and people just out for a leisurely walk. The TransCanada Trail is a stretch of path with crushed gravel, which makes for slower travel than on a paved surface. But I enjoyed the slightlyuphill ride and before long I arrived in Bells Corners where I continued on across a bridge and along the trail until eventually I reached Fitzgerald Road, a road that winds past a number of businesses in Bells Corners, including the Salvation Army. I turned north on Moodie Drive – this was the part of the trip I had been dreading – where I to my relief I quickly discovered a dedicated bike lane. My relief soon turned to horror as I approached the exit ramps for Highway 417, where the wonderful white painted bike lane suddenly disappeared. Impatient motorists looking to take the east and west exits zoomed past me, sometimes at the last minute, anxious to shave a few minutes off their own commutes. I reached Carling Avenue (not the best route by the way, but I missed the turnoff near Corkstown Road, where the Greenbelt trail was supposedly located) and headed west, quickly locating a designated bike lane.

CYCLING THE CAPITAL Bike commuting in Ottawa series Next week: We look at why the city needs to create more cycling links and how it is educating Nevil Hunt/Metroland a new generation of The TransCanada Trail is a route of crushed gravel, which makes for slower travel than cyclists.

EMC news – Ottawa cyclists are calling for the city to follow its guidelines for providing detours when roads are under construction. In 2009, the municipality created a set of rules for providing construction detours for cyclists. The city is responsible for providing detours and advance notice of road closures resulting from contracted work or special events. In the construction zone, the contractor doing the work is responsible for cyclists’ safety. “The city offers detours for cyclists, for pedestrians and for motorists,” said city spokesperson Jocelyne Turner. “It works just like any other detours.” But the detours are often long and cater to motor vehicles, said cyclist Alex deVries, who has been commuting by bike for eight years. “The City of Ottawa actually has guidelines, but it’s very hidden, and appears to be hidden from the project managers of different sites,” deVries said. The National Capital Commission, on the other hand, doesn’t have any guidelines. For the NCC’s parkways and multi-use pathways, construction signs and detours are addressed on a case-by-case basis with a common-sense approach, said NCC spokesperson Jasmine Leduc. But there may be hope for improvements, as the city and the NCC are working on creating common guidelines to show cyclists where to go during road construction. The city provided its own guidelines for consideration, and the NCC has involved Gatineau in talks about a common approach, Leduc said. “It’s a work in progress,” she said, adding that there is no timeline on when consistent procedures for signs geared at cyclists might be finalized.

on paved surfaces such as the Ottawa River Parkway.

‘It’s basically exercising for free’ for the several times I became lost and had to ask directions or when I missed turnoff signs for the Greenbelt Trail and was forced to modify my route. BEAUTIFUL ROUTE

Matt Rose, a downtown Ottawa resident and a long-time cycling commuter from his home to his office in the Kanata North Research Park, makes much better time during his daily commutes. It takes him about 45 minutes to travel from his home to work, which he does three to five times a week from April to November. “It’s basically exercising for free,” he said. “No time. No money. I actually save money because I don’t have to pay for gas.” Rose travels to work using the parkway and Greenbelt paths. “It’s a really nice bike ride,” he said. “There’s very few stops. There’s very few drivers to deal with. The scenery along the river is very nice. “I sit behind a desk all day,” he said. “I need something to keep in shape.” Rose said he’d like to see more segregated bike lanes. “The bike lanes we have now, they’re ignored by motorists (more) than anything else,” he said. “We need more segregated bike lanes like the ones we have on Laurier.” Another pet peeve is the lack of signage on March Road near the March/Eagleson Road west exit. “There’s no stop sign or yield sign or anything like that, so if a cyclist is coming over a bridge they have to get across one lane to get over to the right shoulder.” That said, Rose said he loves commuting by bike. “The entire bike ride is beautiful,” said Rose. “Half of it is through farms and basically through the Greenbelt and the other half is along the Ottawa River.”

To Ice or Not to Ice? That is the question By: Your Local Family Physiotherapy Team Ever wonder when you should be using ice on an injury? An ice pack can become a great ally in the rehabilitation process, but only if used correctly. Ice is typically used for injuries where there is inflammation (redness, heat, swelling, pain, and loss of function). Applying an ice pack within the first 24-48 hours to an injury where inflammation is present should help to reduce both pain and swelling around the area. Ice can also be used as a preventative treatment in more chronic conditions caused by overuse or repetitive strain (i.e. tennis elbow). In these particular cases, ice should only be

applied to the injured area after activity to help control the inflammation. Never apply ice to a chronically injured area before physical activity. Take the following steps to get maximal benefits from your ice: 1. Ice immediately after a new injury (i.e. acute ankle sprain), or after you have irritated your chronic injury (i.e. shin splints) 2. Ensure a layeris between the ice and your skin. Wrapping anice pack in a wet hand cloth and placing it over the painful areais a safe and effective way to ice. 3. Ice for a maximum of 15 minutes. Icing for any longer

may result in damage to your tissues. 4. Elevate your injured limb to enhance the reduction in swelling. 5. Put 2 hours between consecutive icings to keep the icing effective. Make sure you have full sensation and the skin is warm to the touch before you start icing again.

Brier Dodge/Metroland

The city and the National Capital Commission are working to create common guidelines to address cycling issues during roads construction.

City must follow its own construction guidelines: cyclists Continued from 39

The city’s guidelines include maintaining smooth surfaces, providing a 1.2- to two-metre wide bike lane, and signage indicating cars may not pass cyclists in areas where a safe cycling lane or sidewalk alternative cannot be provided. The six-page document has guidelines for pathways and obstacles that may impede cyclists, and a variety of suggested signs. When construction limits traffic to one lane, deVries said the ideal situation includes signs telling motorists not to pass cyclists. “When that sign is not there, drivers just assume that it’s business as usual,” he said. “When cyclists take the lane, there are some really angry drivers.” Cyclists are partly to blame, too, said John Francis, a cyclist whose commute takes him along Prince of Wales Drive. When that road was under construction north of Fisher Road, cyclists and motorists ignored the signs instructing cyclists to take the lane, he said. When Carling Avenue was

under construction, cycling was particularly bad for deVries. The road was too narrow for cars to pass him, he said, but without signs, both drivers and construction workers would become agitated. “Everyone is backed up behind me, and construction workers are yelling at me, and a guy leans on the horn and says he’s going to run me over,” he recalled. Angry drivers are the exception rather than the norm in Ottawa, he said, with over 99 per cent of drivers respectfully sharing the road with cyclists. His current commute takes him through the west end from the NCC’s Experimental Farm path to the Transitway NCC path crossing Woodroffe Avenue. DeVries said he has had excellent experiences with construction staff who have gone out of their way to make sure cyclists have a safe path to cross. He said contractors shouldn’t have to be lobbied to put up signs for cyclists, which is fairly inexpensive, but it should become standard practice.

If it becomes the norm, cyclists and drivers alike will become more comfortable with how to deal with one another while travelling through construction sites, deVries said. “Road closures, that’s just normal, we’ll always have that,” he said. “The City of Ottawa should just follow their own guidelines. If they just follow those rules, it would make construction sites much easier for cyclists.” But construction isn’t always a bad thing for cyclists. Many look forward to it as well, since roadwork will often result in a smoother road surface that’s easier to ride on. Lindenlea cyclist Rob Schmidt said cyclists are often in the best position to report when minor road maintenance is needed. Cyclists should take on the responsibility of reporting potholes and faded bike lanes to the city’s 311 call service centre, he said, as the conditions of the roads affect cyclists safety and ease of travel more so than motorists.

But I wasn’t on Carling for long when I located the Ottawa River Parkway path, a 20-kilometre route that follows the curve of the river, passing

through beautiful wooded areas and greenery as well as a few beaches. I picked up speed on the well-paved path, clicking along more quickly than I had on the TransCanada Trail. The Parkway path offered a few amenities along the way, as it was located near urban areas, such as communities in Nepean and Westboro, including one well-placed porta-potty. I passed many areas with benches, perfect spots for a quick rest, as well as a number of parks and beaches, such as Westboro Beach. Finally, I reached Booth Street and continued pedaling south until I arrived at Laurier Avenue, where I quickly located the downtown road’s legendary 1.3-kilometre segregated bike lane. The route quickly brought me to Elgin Street, where Ottawa City Hall was located. Sweaty and warm from my ride, I checked the clock on my telephone. One hour and 35 minutes. Not bad – as Google Map had estimated the trip would take me around an hour and a half, which didn’t account

Young parents more likely to drive tired: insurance survey EMC news - As we reach the height of summer driving season, Ontario highways are filled with families on road trips and trips to the cottage. But a recent survey reveals a number of Ontario parents who are behind the wheel of their carefully packed car may inadvertently be putting their families at risk. Insurance Hunter’s Neglected Driver Survey reveals Ontario motor-

ists have continued to drive when tired – leading some to nod off, swerve or worry about getting their family into an accident. The online study of 1,003 Ontario parents with children under the age of 12 who take family road trips, was hosted on the Angus Reid Forum. The survey reveals: • A significant number of men (30 per cent) have nod-

ded off behind the wheel (compared to 14 per cent of women). • Almost one-quarter of men (23 per cent) swerved because they were tired (11 per cent of women). • Almost one-third of men (32 per cent) said they worried about getting their family into an accident because they were tired while driving (24 per cent of women).

“As soon as families set off on their trip, they seem to forget about the driver,” said Gail Robertson of Insurance Hunter. “Our survey shows the vast majority take the driver’s needs into consideration in the planning and preparation stage but not while driving – the most important stage of a road trip. Although today’s parents put their kids’ needs first, the driver’s needs must become the

priority if families are to arrive safely at their destination.” From June 19 to 22, an online survey was conducted among 1,003 randomly selected Canadian adults from Ontario with kids under 12, who are also Angus Reid Forum panel members. In today’s modern family, mom and dad share many household and family duties but the Neglected Driver Sur-

vey reveals dad is at the wheel for most family trips. According to the survey, almost threequarters of fathers (72 per cent) do all, or most of, the driving on long family road trips. “We know people across Ontario are anxious to get to their holiday destinations as quickly as possible, but they have to start prioritizing the driver’s needs,” said Robertson.

Rain brings a breath of life to parched farm


oday, every farmer dreads a long spell when no rain falls and he watches helplessly as his crops burn before his eyes. Often, if the drought happens in the late spring or early summer, the sprouts of new crops do not appear at all. But a long dry spell in the days when I was a young girl meant disaster and added backbreaking work. We had many such spells, but one I remember most. Summer had erupted beautifully. The crops showed signs of good growth and the hot days meant that our large garden should produce enough vegetables for daily eating, as well as a bountiful supply to can away for the winter. Our old iron pump, close to the back door, received its usual coat of bright green paint and coughed up its regular gush of crystal clear water for household uses as well as providing a constant

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories supply of drinking water for the farm animals. Two long galvanized troughs sat in the yard close to the pump and twice a day we took turns pumping while a couple of us hauled milk-pails full of water so the troughs were always kept full for the animals. The pump sat on a rickety wooden platform over the well and I can recall how we often would lie on our bellies with our eyes pressed close to the cracks in the boards. Way down deep in the cavity we would see the well’s black pit, where we would drop in stones and marvel at the hollow sound as they plopped into the water below.

That year, however, the hot sunny days with no rain continued on. It wasn’t long until the ground in our lane settled into wide cracks in the clay and the normally moist sand around our back door became dry and powdered. Gradually the crops stopped growing and our garden had to be watered daily by carrying pails of water up a steep grade at the back of the house. Soon we noticed that it took longer and longer to prime the pump. Often we would have to pump like fury before it would catch deep below and release the water. Then, just as if someone had turned off a tap, the

pump had nothing more to give up. We were out of water. Still, we were better off than many farmers in the area. The Bonnechere River ran at the back of our property. It too was feeling the effects of the long dry spell, however, and the water had left its banks until just a three-metre span trickled down the centre. My father said we had no choice but to haul the water from the river. Daily, we hitched up the horses to the stone boat and with every available milk can balanced on the flat surface we made our way to the visibly-diminishing Bonnechere and filled the cans with water. Now, the troughs were only half full for the livestock and the reservoir on the Findlay Oval went for days without being filled. Our once-a-week baths were suspended and replaced with sponge baths and the Monday washing was shoved over for another day, just in

case it rained. Every mouthful of water we drank came from the Bonnechere and was boiled on the stove, but none of us had much of a taste for it. The drought went on for weeks and the talk around our supper table centred on how we would manage to feed the livestock over the winter if we had no hay. The evening singsongs ceased. Our parents wore worried looks that sent a pall over the entire household and I had a gnawing pain in the pit of my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Then one morning, very early, we heard the first gentle patter of a soft rain on the roof. It was only a matter of a few minutes until each of us ran to a window to search out the clouds in the early dawn. The sky was dark and we could hear Father yell, “It’s going to be an allday rain, the sky is covered in cloud!” Soon it was teeming down

like sheets of steel and our mother in her nightdress ran outside with the granite dishpan to place it under the eave to catch the soft water as it ran off the roof. We five children followed her out. In those days we slept in our underwear and we ran over the soaking grass like people possessed. It was the most beautiful feeling, with our hair hanging down over our eyes in sopping disarray. There was no thunder or lightning, just the soft beating of the rain that had come to breathe new life into our part of the Ottawa Valley. In the kitchen, Mother was frying a pan of homesmoked bacon and I knew there would be eggs and homemade jam for our toast, a breakfast usually reserved for Sundays. It was a day for rejoicing. The ache in my stomach was gone and I knew that once again, all was right in my world.

Upside down cake is absolutely peachy


omfort food is food that makes you feel good. Very often, it’s something your mother made when you were young. It might be anything from creamed eggs on toast to chocolate pudding. For me, comfort food in August is peach upside down cake. My mother made it every year I can remember and, as soon as the fresh peaches are in season, I do the same. It’s as much of a tradition as turkey at Christmas. Although this cake has to be made from scratch, it’s very easy. Peeling and slicing the peaches probably takes longer than mixing the ingredients for the cake. The secret is making this at the right time of the day so that you can serve the cake for supper while it’s still warm. If you’ve never eaten homemade peach upside down cake, give yourself a treat and enjoy. CAKE

• 1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup 2 per cent milk with 1 tbsp. vinegar) • 1/2 cup margarine • 1 1/4 cups white sugar

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff • 1 egg • 1 tsp. vanilla • 2 cups flour • 1 tsp. baking soda • 1/2 tsp. salt TOPPING

• 1 cup brown sugar • 1/4 cup butter, softened at room temperature • 5-6 peaches, peeled and sliced If you’re using milk and vinegar rather than buttermilk, combine them and let sit while you prepare the other ingredients. Line the bottom of a 20centimetre square pan with aluminum foil. Sprinkle the brown sugar over this then dot evenly with butter. Arrange the peach slices in rows on top of this so that they completely cover the bottom of the pan.

In a mixing bowl, cream the margarine and white sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients, alternating with the liquid. Spoon the batter over the peaches. Bake at 350 F (175 C) for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let sit for about five minutes. Place a large plate upside down over the cake pan. Holding both the plate and pan with potholders, turn upside down, then lift off the pan. Because the pan is lined with aluminum foil, it will lift off easily. Carefully peel the foil off the bottom of the cake. Serve warm with whipped cream. Serves six to eight.

Early exit for Ottawa’s table tennis Olympian Mo Zhang Eddie Rwema

EMC sports - After an impressive run on day one of the London 2012 Olympic Games, Ottawa’s Mo Zhang was eliminated from the women’s singles table tennis competition in the second round. Zhang, Canada’s only remaining singles player, was defeated by Austria’s Li Qiangbing 4-1 July 29. Earlier, Zhang rallied to beat Turkey’s Melek Hu 4-3 to advance to the second round. The second-round loss was a step back for Zhang, who advanced to the third round at the 2008 Beijing Games.     Table Tennis Canada’s director general Tony Kiesenhofer said they are now setting their sights on 2016, with hopes to achieve a stronger showing in Rio. London 2012 was Zhang’s second Olympic Games in her young career. Born in China and living in Ottawa, Zhang went to London coming off a 2011 season that saw her compete at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico and win gold in the singles event. Zhang has won singles gold three times at the North American championships, 2009-11, and gold in women’s doubles in 2006. She has also added three silver medals in the singles event, 2006-08.

Bells Corners tech firm to combat cyber threats for DND Innovation program sees 40 new contracts awarded through government departments Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - A Bells Corners company will be charged with protecting the federal department of defence from cyber threats thanks to an initiative that pairs emerging products with government departments. Solana Networks and Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre announced July 24 that the company was awarded a six-month $160,000 contract to test their SMARTFlow network security monitoring tool. The Bells Corners-based company, made up of former Nortel and JDS Uniphase employees, was awarded the trial contract through a government program called the Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program. The program was launched in 2010 and connects Canadian companies with federal government departments and agencies that have a need for innovative products and services. Since its inception, 40 contracts have been awarded. “Usually the government is slow to use new technology,” Poilievre said. “They wait until it’s proven and then buy it from the lowest bidder. That means it’s already been on the market for a couple of years. Under this program, the government will buy the newest technology before anyone else.” Nabil Seddigh, the president of Solana, said the technology uses an anomaly detection approach, which could potentially be more effective than the current signature based techniques used now. The signature-based approach looks at already

known security threats and analyzes traffic on a company’s network or router. SMARTFlow is designed to detect threats sooner by looking for any kind of anomaly in the traffic. A demonstration of the software at the company’s Moodie Drive office on July 24 showed that it could break down traffic by country and then focus down to a single IP address if an anomaly is detected.

As the criminals get more sophisticated in their technology so must we. PIERRE POILIEVRE MP, NEPEAN-CARLETON

“As the criminals get more sophisticated in their technology so must we,” Poilievre said. The technology will be tested in a two-phase program at DND. The first, three-month phase would test the software under normal working conditions. The second phase would move the software into a lab where it would be tested to its limits. Seddigh said Solana will be on hand during the trial of the software to consult with the DND’s technicians. “We would help with the set up and be available to consult if any threats are detected,” he said. Bells Corners Business Improvement Area executive director Alex Lewis thanked Solana for their contribution to the community and congratulated them on their recent growth. “This is exactly the type of growth we want to see in Bells Corners,” Lewis said.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of William Paul Rikely (Bill) on July 25, 2012 in his 88th year. Bill passed away at Ottawa’s Queensway Carleton Hospital following a brief illness. Bill was predeceased in 1984 by his beloved wife of 37 years, Pauline (Hare). He leaves behind his children Susan (Dan), Daniel (Geraldine) Kathryn (Brian) and Jennifer (Barry) and grandchildren Christopher Parsons (Jessamyn), Bronywn and Meredith Lazowski. In 1989 Bill was blessed to marry his loving wife, Janine (Rousseau), and to be embraced by her children and grandchildren: David (Julia and children Gabrielle and Chloe), Nicole (Jean Paul), Michael (Sheilah), Paul (Suzy and children Nicholas and Samuel) and Denise (David and children Lindsey and Logan). Bill had a distinguished career with the Canadian Military beginning as an RCAF pilot, then transferring to the navy where he rose to the rank of Commander. He was the proud Captain of the naval destroyer “Kootenay”. Following his 32 year military career, Bill joined the federal Aviation Safety Board. Since 1989, Bill enjoyed a rich and active retirement continuing to feed his lifelong passion for aviation and his love of the open seas. Bill will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all those who love him dearly. A celebration of his life will be held on Monday, July 30th at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel at Pinecrest Cemetery. The service will be followed by a reception for family and friends. The family would like to thank the staff of the Queensway Carleton Hospital for their care and compassion during Bill’s final weeks.

THE 24TH ANNUAL ODESSA ANTIQUE SHOW AUGUST 11TH & 12TH, 2012 EASTERN ONTARIOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S LARGEST OUTDOOR ANTIQUE SHOW The Odessa Antique Show and Sale, the LARGEST outdoor antique show in eastern Ontario, will be held this year on August 11 and 12, 2012. At this popular annual event, dealers from Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes display a wide variety of antique and collectible treasures. Collectors can count on discovering anything from furniture to household items, tools, textiles, paintings, folk art, jewellery and glass and china. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to decorate your home with heritage objects or retro pieces or add to a long-held collection, the Odessa Antique Show will no doubt yield many fascinating finds. The prices suit every budget, ranging from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars. The dealers arrive and begin unpacking their wares on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. Keen visitors can pay the $20 early-bird admission, which includes re-entry on Sunday; checking in early allows you to peruse the stalls, examine the items up close and be the first to buy. Admission on Sunday from 8 a.m. onwards costs $8. An abundance of delectable homemade food, the Odessa Antique Show is an excellent deal and a great event for a summer afternoon, not only for antique lovers but for anyone interested in eye-catching memorabilia. No reproductions are allowed. This is an antique & collectibles show. Exhibitors More than 100 vendors from across Ontario, Quebec, and even Atlantic Canada, are expected at the event, which organizers describe as the largest antique show in Eastern Ontario. The event has survived for nearly a quarter of a century because it caters to both kinds of antique collectors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have a certain type of collector that is interested in purchasing items to decorate their house; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not so interested in the investment value,â&#x20AC;? Dobson said , said Bill Dobson, who was the owner of the show until he handed it over to Karen Leacock-Brown in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other area is people who want to purchase things as a fairly good investment for value in the future. CL407511 â&#x20AC;&#x153;The interesting thing about the Odessa show is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so large and so diverse it satisfies all types of collectors.â&#x20AC;?

60 Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, August 9, 2012

EMC news - The Ottawa Neighbourhood Services warehouse still has the lingering smell of smoke, weeks after arson destroyed thousands of dollars worth of goods that would have gone to help those in need. Now, the organization - which helps some people who are also victims of arson - finds themselves looking to the community for help “It’s a crushing blow, like a boulder has landed on top of us,” said Patricia Lemieux, president of Ottawa Neighbourhood Services. The 80-year-old organization had just celebrated its anniversary a couple weeks earlier when the fire was set outside the building at City Centre. Lemieux said she got the call at about 8:30 that morning, and said she was shocked. “I didn’t want to go alone,”

she said, so she tried to track down some volunteers at the warehouse who could go with her to see how much damage there was. She got a hold of two volunteers who met her at the site when she looked at the damage. Coincidently, Lemieux said a group of students from the United States were scheduled to help out at the organization. The students helped a great deal, she said, and managed to sort out and salvage clothing that had been donated. “Had they never had the opportunity to work out here, no doubt we would have been overwhelmed,” Lemieux said. “They stuck by us.” She said a group from Carleton University also lent a helping hand cleaning up. Ottawa Neighbourhood Services is now in desperate need of funding to stay afloat, said Lemieux. “We’re really struggling,” she said. “Any little amount will help us out. We

are in desperate need of some kind of funding.” The organization has set up a Fire Assistance Program through the Bank of Montreal. The bank code is 001, transit number 03566, account number 1998118. Lemieux said donors can get tax receipts for larger donations.Because of the lingering smell of smoke, Lemieux said she’s tried to get all the furniture and mattresses moved closer to the front of the store. “I don’t want to give somebody something that will make them sick from the smell,” she said, adding one family who was a victim of fire themselves picked out some of the furniture that had remained. Lemieux said it’s lucky that nobody was injured in the fire. She said whoever committed the arson could also ultimately be responsible for destroying an organization that’s helped the community for 80 years, sending items out to about 30 social service partners.

Survival sex: reality for the sex worker Desmond Devoy


The POWER presenters expressed frustration with dealing with the Ottawa police. “The police really do not want to work with us,” said Blewett. “We tried to call for a moratorium on street sweeps on hookers. We were rejected.” Several years ago, the Ottawa police started a John Letter program, which was sent to johns who had been caught soliciting from prostitutes. But many sex workers did not approve of this method. “The John Letters re-stigmatize workers,” said POWER chairwoman Emily Symons. “The letters were not

POWER chairwoman Emily Symons, right, also spoke at the event. helpful at all. The perception I get from the police force over and over again is, ‘We don’t want to work with you.” Blewett went further, stating that police assertions that “‘We’re collaborating with sex workers,’ is a total joke. They contacted us once.” Insp. Uday Jaswal of the Ottawa police central district said he has met Symons over coffee and that the department has been in contact with them a number of times, both formally and informally. “They are able to report bad dates and assaults to police,” said Jaswal, who pointed out officers have been assigned “to meet these women where they are at” to better understand the situation. OLDEST PROFESSION

Blewett said she wished she had some insight into the sex worker trade before she

entered her profession. “I didn’t do any research,” said Blewett. “I just jumped in… consequences be damned.” Symons noted that prostitution was the so-called oldest profession for a reason, and that a financial incentive in exchange for sex should not be stigmatized. Other business transactions that involve an intimate relationship of another sort – think day care – are seen differently than prostitution. “We need to give that respect to sex work,” said Symons. Lee-Todd said there has been an ongoing debate about whether or not sex work should be considered a form of violence against women within the women’s shelter community. “People will be firmly rooted on either side,” Lee-Todd said, with some in the “abo-

litionist” camp, while others consider it “valuable work.” She added it’s important to open the dialogue and think differently, outside of stereotypes, and have a discussion about a difficult subject.

Our body is a tool to make money. EMILY SYMONS POWER CHAIRWOMAN

Stefanie Lomatski, executive director of the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women, said some who work in the trade do so out of necessity, not by choice. “If women do not have

enough money to get to the end of the month, they may have to go that route,” said Lomatski. “Survival sex is not in that realm of choice or free agency. Not all women are in a position to make a choice.” Another stereotype the women sought to dispel was the issue of safe sex and STDs. “Sex workers use condoms more so than the general public,” said Symons. “Our body is our tool to make money.” Rob Boyd of the Sandy Hill Community Health Centre’s Oasis program in downtown Ottawa, agreed that “if you are practicing safer sex… there is minimal to no risk.” “Most (sex workers) would do their best to protect their own health,” said Boyd, noting they pick up free condoms at his Ottawa clinic, though he added that some men do pay extra for sex without protection.

Now Tucker is a boy who will be always following you where ever you go.... if you want to have a “Bodyguard” he is your man. When you walk he’ll walk when you sit he’ll be on your lap asking for his pay cheque in the form of cuddles and hugs and kisses. If you ask him it is a very good payment system in which both parties get what they want. He is playful, affectionate and always happy to see a human anytime any where and he’ll demonstrate his love to anyone who gives him the time of the day. If you want some one to love you without reservation and be always by your side he is ready and able to fulfill your wishes.... all that love he has is ready to be given away... maybe to YOU????

While medical help for sex workers is an ongoing issue, the women revealed that accessing mental health resources is also a concern for them. “My therapist was convinced that I was depressed because I was a sex worker,” said Blewett. “Everything keeps coming back to our work.” Boyd said his clinic tries to create a “stigma-free zone…to provide a space where people are safe to disclose and they will be respected for who they are. People can talk about what they are doing, even if it is illegal.” While a HIV diagnosis has to be reported to the public health authorities, Boyd’s clinic goes the extra mile to allow street people and prostitutes feel safe by having a women’s clinic one day a week, staffed only by women, allowing only female clients to attend on that day.

Check your smoke alarm R0011543584

EMC news - No little girl wants to grow up to become a sex worker. But when that little girl grows up and has a little girl of her own to feed, she may feel she has no choice to buy food or pay the rent. Having sex to pay for baby formula may not be the most palatable reason why a woman would go into sex work, but it is one of the reasons why Lanark County Interval House brought the issue into sharp focus at a presentation on the trade in Carleton Place last month. “Because we are a rural community we think that sex work does not happen in Lanark County,” said Erin LeeTodd, executive director of Interval House. “It is absolutely a reality in Lanark County… We all need to be mindful that it is happening.” Lindsay Blewett is a sex worker and a volunteer with POWER (Prostitutes of Ottawa/Gatineau Work, Educate, Resist). She said she hoped her presentation would give the assembled service providers some insight into her work. Her presentation, entitled XXX Workshop: Realities, Issues and Challenges for Service Providers, was shared at the Carleton Place Canoe Club on June 14.

CITY OF OTTAWA Did you know that working smoke alarms can cut your chances of dying in a fire by 50 per cent? In Ontario, having working smoke alarms is not only a good idea -- it’s the law. Ottawa Fire Services recommends you install a smoke alarm on every level of your home, and outside your sleeping areas. Test your smoke alarms every month and change the batteries twice a year when you change your clocks.

Canada loses 4-3 heartbreaker to Americans Morgan scores in extra time to seal spot in gold medal game EMC Sports - Christine Sinclair showed why she is considered one of the best, if not the very best, female soccer player on the planet Monday. And it still wasn’t quite enough. The 29-year-old Burnaby, B.C., native carried the Canadian women’s soccer team into extra time against the United States, scoring all three of her team’s goals in the Olympic semifinal game at Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, but the number one-ranked Americans still prevailed 4-3. Sinclair gave Canada three separate leads in the game, but each time the U.S. tied it back up, the third time on a penalty kick in the 80th minute by Abby Wambach. Alex Morgan then scored the winner deep into the second overtime period. A win would have been an

incredible accomplishment for a Canadian side that had never reached the semifinals before, and hadn’t beaten the U.S. since 2001. Canada can still salvage a medal out of the tournament, facing France in the bronze medal match Thursday at 8 a.m. ET. The U.S. will play Japan for gold at 2:45 p.m. “They’ve come to see the flag rise,” said head coach John Herdman after the match. “That’s the job. They came here for that and the job is not finished. They’ll be disappointed tonight because it won’t be gold or silver, but we’ll take a medal from this tournament.” Ajax’s Candace Chapman, an important veteran defender on the Canadian team, again dressed but did not play. She has not seen the field since hobbling off in an opening 2-1 loss to Japan with a calf injury.

In happier times Canadian Olympic soccer players Melanie Booth and Christine Sinclair celebrate a goal. The women’s soccer team lost their chance at gold to the American team on Aug. 6. The team was scheduled to play Aug. 9 against France for Bronze.

Whitfield Crashes Out

EMC Sports - Canada stayed true to itself in its Olympic women’s basketball swansong. Trouble was, so did the United States. Canada played its usual deliberate, physical style but simply didn’t have enough firepower to handle a de facto WNBA all-star team as the Americans registered a typically easy 91-48 victory in the Olympic quarter-finals Tuesday. The United States has won 39 straight women’s Olympic basketball games and it’s

a virtual certainly they will win their fifth gold medal in a row n Saturday’s final. Playing before a crowd of 8,915 that included LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Deron Williams, the Canadians hung around for a bit before the Americans got rolling. The United States led 198 after one quarter, 42-21 at halftime and 68-31 after three as they simply wore down Canada. The last Olympics game an American women’s team lost was the semifinal of the 1992 Barcelona Games to the Unified Team.

The 39-game winning streak they are on began 20 years ago to the day with a victory in the bronze medal game there. The Canadians were playing in a quarter-final Olympic game for the first time ever; the only other Games they placed better in were in Los Angeles; they were fourth in the round-robin of those boycotted games. Canada, ranked 11th by FIBA, finishes with a 2-4 record here, with wins over Britain and Brazil and losses to United States (No. 1 in the world), Australia (No. 2 in the world), Russia (No. 3 in the world) and France (ranked ninth). Diana Taurasi had 15 points for the United States, Kim Smith and Chelsea Aubry had 10 points each for Canada.
