Transportation plan puts off new Transitway for Stittsville until 2031 Laura Mueller


News - The city is squeezing a little more transit into Kanata under its new plan – but not light rail. During a discussion about the draft transportation master plan on Nov.4, city staff revealed an altered plan that would see a bus Transitway in the median of March Road extended farther to end at Solandt Road instead of Carling Avenue. The changes would also add a $25-million new section of Transitway along Highway 417 through an already-built tunnel under the Valour Bridge to connect to Terry Fox station. The trade-off is that the changes remove a plan to create another off-ramp to separate buses from traffic at the Eagleson/ March/Campeau intersection, which would have cost $30 million. “We can build that underpass with no route, or we can build the route with no underpass,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Instead, buses will travel in regular vehicle traffic for the stretch off the Queensway to Corkstown Road, where specialized signals will allow the buses to cross into the median.

She remained in serious condition as she was transported to the trauma unit at the Ottawa Hospital, said paramedics in a news release. The northbound lanes of Eagleson Road were closed between Palomino and Abbeyhill drives as police investigated the collision. The road was reopened around 10:45 p.m.

Qadri proposes transit tax levy Fire displaces two The buses will continue north on March Road on a separate busway until they reach the Kanata North Business Park. It was important to make the best use possible of a future transit investment for Kanata, Wilkinson said, and it will be of more benefit to extend the new Transitway sections rather than build expensive grade-separated ramps that would only provide a marginal benefit. The new facilities will encourage people to park-and-ride at Terry Fox, which will be important as the area develops with around 3,000 new homes and new employment areas, including the nearby outlet mall under construction. Stittsville, however, won’t be getting new bus Transitways as planned in the past. That’s a big problem for Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, who said new residents have already been contacting him to express frustration with the change in plans. People moved into the area expecting it to be served by good transit service, he said, and the community design plan allowed for higher densities because of that. “I think you’re doing a disservice to this community,” Qadri said. Marilyn Jenkins, past president of the Stittsville Village Association, echoed his comment. “We have deep, deep disappointment in the west end of the slashing of the BRT (bus rapid transit) sys-

tem,” she said. Under the last transportation master plan, the developing Fernbank area was slated to get bus-rapid-transit and/or transit-priority measures before 2031. That project was put further down the list in the new plan due to an affordability analysis that indicated it is less urgent and of less benefit then other transit projects, said deputy city manager Nancy Schepers. The roadway space needed for the future bus facilities will still be protected so it can be converted for bus use in the future, after 2031. The city will also reserve dedicated space for buses when it builds a new northsouth arterial road to serve the developing Fernbank area. Qadri said he is going to approach developers to see if they’ll front the money needed to built both phases of that road – including a northern leg to connect to Palladium Drive – at the same time. Asking developers to advance the funding needed to construct infrastructure is something the city should be doing more of, Qadri said, adding that the same strategy could be used to fast track the building of busways in Stittsville, too. Even a localized tax levy to fund transit improvements is something the city should consider, the councillor said. He’ll be pushing that issue further during debates about the transportation master plan by the transportation committee on Nov. 15. Mayor Jim Watson headed off what

was potentially the most contentious part of the $3 billion transportation master plan – the lack of a rail link to the airport – by sending out a memo before the meeting indicating he and city staff are willing to study what it would take to build that link. The city will include a potential future O-Train link to the airport in an environmental assessment study for a southern extension of the rail line – with the caveat that it could not compromise peak service to Barrhaven and Riverside South, the mayor wrote. Watson said he will meet with Mark Laroche, president and CEO of the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Authority, to “continue these productive and collaborative discussions on how we can build the best transit system we can afford.”

Few budget questions posed in Kanata Mayor defends sparsely attended public meetings on city’s 2014 spending Laura Mueller

News - Almost 20 of the city’s highest-paid managers and politicians were on hand to face budget questions from a total of five Kanata residents. The stark low attendance at the Oct. 29 public consultation on the draft 2014 budget, held at Holy Trinity Catholic High School, mirrored the lack of interest shown at budget consultations in other areas of the city, including Orléans. “Once again, I see we didn’t have to bring out extra seats,” joked Mayor Jim Watson, gesturing at rows upon rows of mostly empty chairs set up in the auditorium facing a firing line of nine city councillors, staff and the mayor. Watson summed it up the same way he explained the apathy towards the city’s budget consultations last year. “My experience has been when people aren’t happy with something, they will come out,” Watson. “I don’t think it would serve us very well to have a roomful of people come up and just heap praise on us, either … Most people tend to react when they’re not happy with something.” Indeed, the first member of the public to speak up during the meeting, Cathy Jordan of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, delivered an “’atta boy” message to the city. “I really believe when the city has done good work it’s important to come out and say it,” she said. “Congrats on a balanced budget. That’s about leadership in the city.” Rod MacLean, president of the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association, was the only other member of the public to speak during the meeting. He wanted to air a point about overcrowding on buses. “It’s not unusual to encounter

standing room only from Terry Fox,” MacLean said, adding that the city should be better serving the west end’s employment areas with transit. MacLean was treated to responses from city brass: deputy city manager Nancy Schepers, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi, as well as Kanata councillors Marianne Wilkinson and Allan Hubley. When asked why he felt it was important to make his point during the meeting instead of giving the city that feedback another way, such as by email or to his councillor, MacLean said, “Sometimes things just need to be said in public.” The public meetings are just one way the city gets feedback on the budget, Watson said. People come up to him in the mall and at farmers’ market to offer praise for the budget. “People like the fact that the tax rate has been kept down. They understand that we can’t cut taxes without cutting services and they’re telling me to stay the course,” Watson said. Watson said the councillors go to their community associations’ meetings and give information and seek feedback on the budget. Not to mention, residents give feedback on the way the city conducts its business year round, Watson said. “I’ve done online chats, I did the mall tour, we’ve done these (public consultations), we have committee meetings,” Watson said. The city even tried holding one of the public consultations in the afternoon last year, so people who work in the evenings could attend. Attendance was similarly low: around 20 members of the public showed up.

Stay away from politics To the editor:

Re: Brynna Leslie’s “Throne speech short on substance,” Oct. 24. This delightful columnist should stay away from politico-economic commentary, which obviously isn’t her forte. She sneers at the throne speech for addressing consumer issues like cable bundling and cellphone fees. These matter to a lot of people. My wife and I wanted to order Treehouse for our 10-year-old son and had to buy a lot of stations we

would never watch to get it. Roaming charges are likely to be an issue now my wife and son are Canadian citizens and will be able to travel in the U.S. without a visa. Bizarrely, Leslie completely ignores the trade agreement between Canada and the European Union, although it is much our most important trade agreement since the free trade agreement with the United States. When she writes about job creation under the Conservative government she becomes delusional: “… most of the jobs created in Canada over the last five years have been low-paying, part-time positions.” In fact, of the 653,000 jobs created between September 2008 and September 2013

Drivers need to follow rules at railway crossings To the editor:

Re: “Safety changes coming to Transitway crossing,” Oct. 24. That terrible and tragic collision between a Via Train and an OC Transpo bus in Ottawa on Sept. 18 that left six bus passengers dead and 30 injured, many seriously, has raised many questions about the safety of railway crossings not only in Ottawa but across Canada. Let’s put the facts into perspective. Before this country, including this city, embarks on a very costly, panic/politically driven national program, estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars, aimed at improving safety at rail crossings in Canada, let’s consider the following. As reported by the Canada Safety Council, there were

169 rail/highway crossing crashes in Canada in 2011: 25 people were killed and 21 were seriously injured. It is suspected that some of those killed are suicides. A motorist is 40 times more likely to die in a crash involving a train than in a collision involving another vehicle. Most collisions occur within 40 kilometres of the motorist’s home. The principle cause of level crossing collisions is the failure of the motorist to stop or exercise due care and caution, or to observe and comply with existing laws and regulations. Roughly, 50 per cent of all rail/highway crossing crashes occur at crossings equipped with flashing lights and bell, or flashing lights, bell or gate. If there is a problem at that crossing in Barrhaven, it will not be fixed solely by the “quick fix” measures announced by the city. One would think these measures – removing and trimming vegetation around that crossing, installing warning lights – would have already been in place. Why they were not begs scrutiny! Most of the collisions at railway crossings in this country can be reduced by driver behavior combined with enforcement and common sense, and at very modest costs.

In the grand scheme of things, should this approach not be considered? If not, why not? Emile Therien Public health and safety advocate Ottawa


Shepherds of Good Hope opens new supportive living facility To the editor:

Hope Living at 145 Castlefrank Road is the newest supportive living facility of Shepherds of Good Hope. The building, once a retirement residence, is now home for 35 supportive living clients of Shepherds of Good Hope as well as 62 of the original residents. Hope Living was once located in the urban core of Lowertown as a supportive living unit. Supportive living is as it sounds: housing with supports. Each resident is supported by staff who attend to medical needs, assisting with meal preparation, appoint-

ment setting and recreational activities. These aging clients can live in a community in a peaceful, green environment amidst park lands, residential residences, schools and nature trails. The absolute nature of living in a community like this is paramount to achieving healthy living and the daily comments from the clients who have relocated there affirm this ideal. It is the belief of Shepherds of Good Hope that aging clients deserve a life like any other senior citizen in a clean, warm home. The residents are thrilled to have their own bedroom and bathroom and beautiful common areas where they can visit with friends and family. Here they can experience a calm and quiet environment, a true sense of community and stability. They deserve to live out their lives in dignity and comfort with the former residents of the facility who gladly welcomed them to the fold and have helped them to acclimatize in their new surroundings. We are all people first. We all have a past with a story to tell and for these clients their stories will all conclude with a happy ending. Shepherds of Good Hope Kanata

Wolverines lose Sullivan Cup to Raiders Dean Lachance

Sports - The final outcome may not have been what the Wolverines were hoping for, but the second half of the game was. West Carleton Wolverines Mosquito Football Club (11 to 12-year-olds) was playing in the Sullivan Cup final Oct. 30

and was down 24-0 to the South Gloucester Raiders at half time. But thanks to inspiring speeches by head coach Rob Cathcart and his staff, the Wolverines came onto the field a team with a mission. With the help of defensive coaches John Gleeson and DJ Parent, 16 outstanding and determined players ran over the

Raiders like freight trains and tackled anything that moved, the Raiders didn’t score a single point in the second half. Linebacker Nick Porteous had 13 tackles, one sack and a fumble recovery allowing him to achieve the Most Valuable Player Award. But he was not alone, every player on defense played an outstanding game.

Not to be outdone, the offensive players were astonishing as well. The offensive line became a brick wall that a transport truck couldn’t break through. This in turn gave players like running back Andrew Potts, who ran for a 43-yard touchdown, and quarterback Tristen Ready who ran for a 12-yard

touchdown and kicked two two-point conversions, to have the game of their young lives. The offense ran for more than 230 yards total but unfortunately time was not on the Wolverines side. With the score 24-16 Raiders and two minutes left in the game, the Wolverines attempted

an onside kick. Mike Lightbody made the perfect kick, but as if in slow motion, the ball rolled tip over tip and with Wolverine finger tips inches away from touching the ball, it rolled out of bounds. The players were heartbroken but they should be proud; the coaches and parents are.

Just do it, for art’s sake


t’s time the city put its full weight behind the Arts Court expansion after patching together funding to get the long-running project off the ground. The expansion will now cost the city $34 million. The federal government was asked to pitch in $9 million to go along with $6 million contributed by the province – money originally allocated for a performing arts centre on Elgin Street before those plans fell through – but declined to help out. The city has now approved an extra $8.2 million to make up for the federal share. Mayor Jim Watson is enthusiastic about the project, saying it’s a rare opportunity to build this type of infrastructure in the downtown core. “There was a strong desire certainly on my part to see that we invest in a significant facility for arts and culture in the downtown core,� he said. This project is a boon to the arts community, and will provide space to nurture and promote creative endeavours. It has the potential to not just help the Ottawa arts scene, but to also attract artists from outside the capital to what should be a wonderful new facility. But the city needs to take one further step to help the Arts Court reach its full potential: foot the whole

bill. As it stands, the current Arts Court tenants will be on the hook for $3.2 million of the expansion cost. While they may be happy to raise the money in exchange for the improved facilities, couldn’t that money be put to better use by those tenants? That sum – $3.2 million – is no small change in the artistic world. It could go a long way toward making art, rather than paying for equipment and fixtures for the expanded facility. Why then isn’t the city just coming up with another $3.2 million? There was money allocated in the budget for a great many things, a budget featuring the lowest property tax increase of the current council term at 1.9 per cent. Adding an extra few million wouldn’t have changed that amount in any noticeable way. The argument could be made that if the tenants have a stake in paying for the expansion, it will make for a stronger partnership. The tenants already have a significant stake in the project: they were involved at every step of the planning process so far. There’s no reason to believe they would all of a sudden take such a small gesture by the city for granted. In light of multi-billion dollar transit visions, significant stadium renewals and extensive road renovations, surely the city can come up with a few extra million to help a worthwhile arts project.


Taking a small risk to right the wrongs of the world


ame 3 ended on a play that had never been seen before in a baseball World Series: a St. Louis Cardinals runner thrown at home plate was called safe because it was ruled that he had been obstructed by a Boston Red Sox player. A terrible ruckus ensued but the call stood. The run the umpires allowed to count was the winning run in the game. Even people who were delighted that Boston lost were a bit chagrined at the call. There had been no intent to obstruct (although that turned out to be irrelevant). More important, it just seemed like an unfortunate way for a game that had been exciting and well-played to end – with an umpire’s interpretation of an obscure rule. No one was really happy about it – although it could safely be said that the Red Sox’ unhappiness exceeded that of the Cardinals. But since these were professional players with professional umpires and a professional rule book, there was no alternative, no going back. Which is too bad, because if the game had been played by little kids, the outcome would have been much more satisfactory. When little kids play games, as memory serves, a controversial play such as that one would spark an intense argument, but there

Therefore, the kids would fall back on a tried-and-tested solution: “Take it over,� someone would say, and they would all agree on that. The play would be repeated, probably with an outcome that no one could argue about and that would be that. That methodology survives to this day and is not reserved for children. Adult players of games such as tennis will sometimes use it, when there is no agreement on whether a ball was in or out. “Play it again,� someone will suggest, and they will. It’s a good solution: the game is won or lost without the bitterness of controversy. And it makes you wonder whether “take it over� might usefully be applied to other aspects of life.

Take the Senate. Please. Suppose Nigel Wright could have said “take it over� after writing Mike Duffy the cheque. That would have been better for him and the prime minister, if not for Mike Duffy. Going back even earlier, the prime minister might have wanted to say “take it over� after making the original appointment of Duffy to the Senate. And going back even further, the Fathers of Confederation might, in retrospect, have wanted to say “take it over� after creating the Senate in the first place. A lot of work has to be done on this concept, no matter how useful it might seem on the surface. How many take-it-overs should any one person be allowed? Under what conditions might “take-it-over� be accepted or rejected? And, inevitably, is “take it over� a federal or provincial responsibility? Further, there is a need for a cultural shift, as people learn to shed their winner-take-all mentality and accept the notion that a defeated or hideously embarrassed person deserves another chance. But once we got over the initial awkwardness, we might be pleasantly surprised at the number of improved results in our day-today living and the life of our governmental

institutions. Now, you have to be careful with this. As readers of Stephen King will know, taking it over does not always produce the best result. In his novel 11/22/63, King’s protagonist journeys back in time with the intention of preventing the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Along the way he prevents other small mishaps from happening, and this version of taking it over causes all sorts of unintended calamities. Still, it might be worth the risk if it could prevent the Senate scandal, not to mention the Senate itself, as well as the obstruction call at third base.

Accessibility renovations – not just for old people


ore than twothirds of Canadian homeowners are expected to renovate this year, according to a poll released by Scotiabank last month. For most, home renovations will account for the largest lump sum of money they’ll ever spend at once. But how much forethought are people putting into remodelling? “People can be pretty cavalier about adding a bathroom, kitchen or addition,” says Moneca Kaiser, the owner of Moneca Kaiser Design Build in Ottawa. “They’re thinking, ‘I want a new kitchen now,’ but they don’t take time to think about how their family will interact in and with that space for the next 10, 20 or 50 years.” Good design, says Kaiser, is not static. Real design is “flexible, multi-faceted and adaptable.” “People often think of blueprints as design,” says Kaiser. “But a blueprint is just one of the tools in design. You’re going to have a blueprint for what you need right now, and another blueprint for what you may need if your in-laws move in temporarily or if you break

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse your leg.” True design, she says, is fluid and dynamic. Design is living and takes into account the lifecycle and environment of the people living in a space or interacting with an object – and it considers both the present and the future of the space. Kaiser is writing a book called “Curing Dysfunctional House Syndrome.” In it, she outlines her own design program developed over the past two-and-a-half decades as a designer and carpenter, which includes an extensive investigation of the people for which she’s designing. “I start every project by asking people what their values are,” says Kaiser. “I take them through a four-page exercise to get to the heart of what’s really important to them. If I value family life, that’s going to require a certain kind of kitchen. If, on the other hand,

I value efficiency, that’s going to require an entirely different space.” Kaiser delves further into her clients’ lives, getting to know everything from their state of health and their age, the people around them, who they spend time with, their favourite recipes, even how much money they make. “If I’m doing a kitchen and my client says they have a goal to eat healthier, I’m going to figure out what I can do in that kitchen to make it easier for them to make more salads,” Kaiser explains. And as Canada faces the challenge of an aging population, design becomes evermore important, particularly in home renovations. Hard built-in components of standard heights that are massproduced by manufacturers are not going to suffice. On the other hand, says Kaiser, things like cabinets on cas-

tors and counters with different elevations can accommodate the now – say a couple who are different heights – and the future if one day someone needs space and height required to prepare food in a wheelchair, for example. “And if people are thoughtful in design, they may integrate a ledge, just at the right height beside the toilet, that can be used as a grab bar if there’s ever a need,” says Kaiser. “It doesn’t scream convalescence because, as part of the design, it’s almost invisible, yet it’s completely efficient and effective.” As Ottawa makes efforts toward a city that’s more senior-friendly, regulators and developers also need to be thinking about flex-housing and design on a larger scale. The modern response to urban density seems to be stacked townhomes, where people live on multiple levels. This type of design has replaced the popular horizontal duplex of the last century,

where families lived on a single floor, but shared property. But as Kaiser notes, it’s a lot more difficult to think about installing ramps, integrating a main floor powder room with shower floor, or cordoning off a dining room to be used for convalescence if people are

living on multiple levels. “People are not taking enough time with design,” says Kaiser. “We pay lip service to it, but design isn’t pretty pictures and blueprints. It requires very deep engagement with the people using it and it has to be flexible.”

‘The older woman is the most vulnerable of us’ When it comes to leaving an abusive relationship, those over 60 face increased barriers Jessica Cunha

News - November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month and the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre is helping by providing options and a support system for women and chil-

dren who experience violence. Violence against women can take many forms: physical, sexual, psychological, verbal and financial. It’s not limited to a specific culture, income level or community where people live, said Vivienne, a peer support worker at the resource centre who

preferred not to use her last name. “They come from all walks of life; it impacts everyone,” she said. “It’s surprising to some to learn that.” According to a document recently released by the resource centre: • Six per cent of Ontario women living in a common-law or marital relationship report experiencing physical or sexual assault by their partner. • Less than 25 per cent of victims of spousal violence report the incident to the police. • Spousal violence is most prevalent among 25- to 34-year-olds. • Eighty-three per cent of victims of spousal violence are women. Sandy, a peer support worker at the resource centre who preferred not to use her last name, said the statistics on violence against women are alarming. “One in three women will experience sexual abuse; for disabled women, it’s 85 per cent,” she said. Metroland Media is publishing articles throughout November on various aspects of violence against women. The first installment focuses on older women and the barriers they face when deciding to leave an abusive relationship. INCREASED BARRIERS

There are a number of barriers women who experience abuse face

It is our honour to recognize your valour


Older women who remain in abusive relationships face many barriers when it comes to seeking help. The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre offers a host of support systems and programs through its violence against women program to help women of any age. when making the decision to leave an unhealthy relationship, said Vivienne. Some of the reasons highlighted in the resource centre’s Handbook on Abuse include: • Fear: abused women are in the most danger when they try to escape. • Lack of economic resources: many women in an abusive relationship have no control over their finances. They fear they may not be able to provide for themselves or their children if they leave. • Isolation: many abusers isolate their partners from family and friends, leaving abused women with no support system. • Societal denial: abused women feel no one will believe their partner is capable of violence. • For the children: some women stay in unhealthy relationships because they believe it’s better for their children to have a father, even if he’s abusive. • New Canadians: they may not speak the language or feel their cultural community isn’t supportive of them leaving their partner. As women age, they face even more barriers when it comes to leaving an abusive relationship, said Sandy. “If they’re married for 40, 50, 60 years, how do you leave that person?” she asked. “The older woman is the most vulnerable of us,” said Vivienne. “It’s the old school way of thinking, ‘I don’t

want people to know.’ There’s a huge stigma attached.” Older women may have tried to leave their abusive partner in the past only to have an authority figure tell her to work it out behind closed doors. “Because of the way the systems were in the past, a woman was told to go home and fix the marriage,” said Sandy. She’s had clients who were told by their priests that they weren’t allowed to leave the marriage because they made a vow to God and others who contacted police to report abuse against themselves and their children. The answer at the time was to remove the abused children – but if there were others who hadn’t been touched they remained in the home. “She felt she had to stay to protect those other children,” Sandy said. Because there were little to no support systems in place in the past for abused women, many older victims who initially tried to get help fear the same lack of response and so remain with their abusive spouse, she said. Compounding the past lack of supports, as children age they can become part of the problem. Abuse is a learned behaviour, said Sandy, and adult children can use emotional blackmail to keep their mother in the relationship. See NEVER, page 13

Never too late to get help: WOCRC Continued from page 12

“(Adult children) can both pressure the mom to stay in the marriage, as well as they can perpetuate the abuse because they’ve learned it,” Sandy said, adding subsequent generations can also play a factor. “Women are afraid they’re going to lose contact with the grandchildren.” Health issues may also play a role as women and their abusers age. Women may not have access to a health plan because her partner controls the benefits. Vivienne said she’s seen cases where the partner threatens his spouse by withholding medication or benefits. “Abusive characters tend to get worse with age,” she said. “They’ve hidden medication. They do things deliberately to get a kick out of it.” She said she’s seen other cases where the abuser may be ill and the woman feels guilty if she leaves him. “No matter how he’s treated her, it’s a huge issue to ask a woman to walk away from the role,” Vivienne said about being a caregiver. In line with financial abuse and the barrier of limited economic resources, an older

woman may feel it’s too late for her to find work to support herself if she leaves her husband. “These are additional barriers for older women,” said Vivienne. But supports have changed – there are new resources available to help women leave a violent or abusive partner, no matter how long they’ve been in a relationship.

Phoning here, just breaking the silence is the biggest thing. SANDY, PEER SUPPORT WORKER

Vivienne recalled helping an 87-year-old woman break free from her abusive partner. “If an 87-year-old can do it, then it’s possible for anyone over 65 to take that step,” she said. “It’s just that first step that’s the hardest.” The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre has a large violence against women program that helps women living in Kanata, Goulbourn, West Carleton, Rideau, Nepean, Osgoode and Bay wards. The pro-


gram offers peer support, individual and group counselling services, transitional housing, referrals and resources. The resource centre also runs Chrysalis House, a secure 25-bed shelter in the city for women and children fleeing an abusive home. Counsellors and peer support workers won’t ask or tell women who call to leave their situations – that is up to them to decide. “We just give options,” said Vivienne. “Phoning here, just breaking the silence is the biggest thing,” said Sandy. “Women, often they don’t tell anybody at all because they think people will look at them badly. “The shame that women carry, it doesn’t belong to them; it belongs to their abusive partner. And there is help to empower her, not to make her dependent again; help to establish her own life,” she added. “The same messages are not there now that were there 50 years ago.” And it’s never too late to get help. Sandy said a client in her late 70s expressed it the best. “She said she may only have a few years left but she was going to live them in peace.”

Hydro Ottawa joins Councillor Qadri to celebrate St. Daniel School mural In September, students at St. Daniel School gave a makeover to the fence surrounding Hydro Ottawa’s transformer station near Woodroffe Avenue and Baseline Road. This new mural, painted on the cement wall which backs on to the school yard, was officially unveiled at a heart-warming ceremony held at the school on October 25th. The learning mural was created by artist Nicole Bélanger and depicts children enjoying sports and recreation throughout the four seasons. Funding for the project was provided by the City of Ottawa/Crime Prevention Ottawa Paint It Up! youth engagement mural program. Councillor Shad Qadri, Chair of the Board for Crime Prevention Ottawa, joined Hydro Ottawa staff to celebrate the mural with students, parents and teachers. The painting at St. Daniel School is part of a larger initiative to introduce outdoor classrooms, trees for shade and other natural spaces to facilitate learning, playing and socializing for students.. The process of planning, designing and creating the mural with students, teachers, parents and the community at large was a great kick-off to the school’s greening project and will build interest, excitement and pride in the school yard.

Melt Method; Relief from Pain and Improved Fitness that’s Gaining Acceptance We, more than any previous generation, all want to be active into our senior years. We have learned through discussions with our doctors and from almost every media source and medical science organization on the planet that a long active life-style is not only possible, but is the best way to avoid disease, injury, and excessive chemical medications. The problem is that many of us shy away from or avoid physical activity when it starts to hurt or when we experience pain from other causes such as disease or nerve inflammation. The old adage; ‘no pain, no gain’ is more than ever something only diehard fitness buffs believe in. Now in Ottawa, there is a group that has tossed the ‘no pain, no gain’ tenet in the garbage and they are amassing a large and varied number of converts to the Melt Method®. Almost twenty years ago Sue Hitzmann, MS, CST, NMT, a U.S.nationally recognized fitness expert, and host of ESPN’s Crunch TV was afflicted by severe pain in her foot she thought would end a very promising fitness career. When traditional therapies had no effect she began to research alternatives and discovered the key lay in improving the condition of the body’s fascia or connective tissue (a stretchy

Dr. OZ

once on the Marilyn Dennis Show, and has a book out that has been on the New York Best Sellers List, 5 times this year alone. Veronica Brown has brought MELT to Ottawa and her client list is growing rapidly. Veronica, like Sue, has found a wide audience eager to learn the MELT techniques and experience pain-free lives. From young adults to athletes of every level to middle-aged folks and seniors, each group finds the system easy to learn, and more importantly easy to fit into busy lifestyles. MELT only takes as little as 10 minutes a day and can be done anywhere because specialized equipment and facilities aren’t needed. People treat themselves at home, at the office, at school, wherever they happen to be and the only thing they miss in their schedules is pain. After pain is eliminated, MELT continues to help the connective tissues which lead to fewer sport and exercise related injuries and much greater mobility and balance. Many athletes and gym members report improved speed, strength, and stamina after just a few MELT sessions. As Veronica of Melt Method Ottawa puts it, “Our bodies’ connective tissues act like a free-flowing river with thousands of tributaries and streams. When the flow is blocked

in any area by dead or dehydrated cells, the traffic jam that results puts everything out of balance.” Using MELT brings a host of side benefits. Many people experience a reduction in high blood pressure and are able to reduce or eliminate some of the daily meds they take after reviewing their improved condition with their physician. They find they don’t require the services of a massage therapist, chiropractor, or physiotherapist as much if at all. Most importantly it brings a new sense of awareness about their own bodies. It helps them to understand the relationships between exercise, diet, physical and medical conditions, and what we put ourselves through every day. It puts them back in charge of their condition and on the way to living the way they always dreamed about. MELT is a proactive approach to maintaining a healthy, pain-free, active lifestyle is the best solution for living longer…better or as MELT founder Sue Hitzmann puts it, “a little proactive self-care goes a long way toward keeping you pain-free and active for a lifetime.” To learn more about MELT and upcoming classes, log onto or call 613-8826358.

and stringy membrane that connects muscle to bones, and keeps internal organs in place. Basically it’s the scaffolding that holds everything together. Thus the Melt Method® was born. The MELT Method® (MELT) is a selftreatment technique using specially designed and manufactured foam balls and rollers that helps prevent pain, heal injury, and erase the negative effects of aging and active living. MELT simulates the hands-on techniques that Sue uses to eliminate stress, pain, and dysfunction in her private clients. This unique Hands-off Bodywork™ approach is the first treatment that simulates the techniques – and the results – of manual therapy. The therapy which consists of a series of physical manipulations of various body areas helps to rehydrate the connective tissues by stimulating cell activity. As Sue and thousands of MELT followers have discovered, when the connective tissue is in good working order, most body pain disappears leaving people to get back to a normal healthy life. Sue Hitzmann’s MELT has grown exponentially. There are now over 800 MELT instructors in the US and 10 here in Canada. Sue has been on Dr. Oz’s popular TV show three times, appeared

Kanata Legion prepares for Remembrance Day Jessica Cunha

News - The Kanata Legion is gearing up to host its 23rd Remembrance Day ceremony at the Kanata Cenotaph on Nov. 11. About 100 members get involved in the ceremony – from set-up to tear-down, marching in the parade and attending the service. A colour party also visits every retirement home in the community in the days leading up to Remembrance Day. “We send a colour party around to the retirement homes to have a small ceremony for the veterans that are there that can’t get out,� said Terry Jenkins, spokesman for the Kanata


Lest We Forget Legion. “There are a lot of them that just can’t make it to the ceremony down at the cenotaph.� The colour party will play the Last Post and say a few prayers, said Jenkins, adding that he always brings his tape recorder with him to play songs from the Second World War. “It’s always a hit,� he said. The ceremony at the Kanata Cenotaph generally draws a crowd in the thousands, including youth from local schools, Girl Guides and Scouts groups, and cadet corps. Community and church leaders, members of the Lions Club, police officers, city representatives, veterans and active military members also take part in the parade. “We have a troop of soldiers that come down from Petawawa and participate in our parade and ceremonies,� said Jenkins. “We probably will have a good (crowd) this year.�

Poppies are distributed at a number of large and small retailers in the community, as well as at every hockey game at the Canadian Tire Centre. All funds collected from donations support the Kanata Legion. “This is the prime fundraiser for the legion,” said Jenkins. “Everything that we collect comes directly to our branch of the legion here … (funds are) distributed as they see fit throughout the year for bursaries and different charities.” Wearing a poppy is about remembering and commemorating veterans, active military members and Canada’s service men and women who lost their lives. “You wear it and it says that I’m wearing the poppy because I’m remembering our fallen veterans and our serving military,” said Jenkins.

Ceremonies to be held across the city Continued from page 25

RICHMOND – 11 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 11, a Remembrance Day ceremony will be held at the cenotaph at Memorial Park. The parade to the cenotaph leaves Richmond Plaza at 10:45 a.m. to arrive at Memorial Park just before 11 a.m.

REMEMBRANCE DAY November 11th is a day when we remember the sacrifices of so many men and women who gave their lives for our country. A moving ceremony will take place starting just before 11 am at the Kanata Cenotaph at Colchester Square. Along with many others, I will be laying a wreath on behalf of the residents of Kanata North. This event is one that reminds me about the importance of the freedoms that we now take for granted and the terrible price paid by so many so that we could keep these freedoms.

KANATA RACE DAY It was great to have this year’s Kanata Race Day start from the Richcraft Recreation Complex Kanata. The official Complex opening will be held December 5th. It was great to see families participating. Many thanks to the organizing committee led by Megan Cornell and to all of the volunteers who did a great job. I look forward to continuing and expanding this as a regular race activity from the Recreation Complex in the future.

WIND TURBINES I have been contacted by a number of residents asking for my position on having wind turbine farms in Ottawa. My colleague Scott Moffatt will be putting forward a motion to have the City of Ottawa have a role in any approval for such installations and I will be supporting him on that motion.

2014 CITY BUDGET The City budget for 2014 has been tabled. Key highlights are the reduction in the total staff complement by 55 full-time employees; a tax increase of 1.9%, the lowest in 7 years; a continuing freeze on recreation fees and the lowest increase in transit rates for years at 1.9%. Some capital projects will be funded in Kanata North , including the extension of Campeau Drive to Huntmar; construction of Klondike road from March Road to Sandhill with sidewalks, new parks and pedestrian ways and construction of the Park and Ride at Innovation and Terry Fox. Details of the budget are on Please contact me with any questions or suggestions with respect to this budget. Council will be debating and approving the budget by the end of November.

RICHCRAFT RECREATION COMPLEX KANATA’S OFFICIAL OPENING is planned for December 5th and an Open House with tours all day on Saturday December 7th. At that time we will place the filled time capsules in the vault but will not seal it until 2014 so that others can obtain their time capsules during the Open House and have it included. You will also be able to view the community walkway, which will have pavers added as donations are received to continue the fundraising for the complex.

DRAINAGE STUDY FOR WATTS CREEK (Beaver Pond) & SHIRLEY’S BROOK Due to the low rainfall in 2012 further testing was done this year to ensure that the study comes up with an accurate picture of the present drainage situation affecting the KNL lands. The final analysis is now underway and I’ve been informed that the study should be completed early in 2014 and that it will be posted online at that time.

Photography club a snap for seniors Laura Mueller

Community - After a series of photos of slanted staircases, shadows cast by blinds, flying bird formations and rows of gravestones, Ken Wilson declared, “It looks to me like you took to diagonals like ducks to water!” Some of the photos are breathtakingly striking, while others would be at home in an album of family snapshots. But accompanied by strains of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto no. 4 in G, all the diagonally-themed photos submitted by Kanata Seniors Digital Camera Club members were given a moment of contemplation during its November meeting. “Most of them come to it later in

life,” said Wilson, the current president of the group. “It’s a photography club, but it’s not as competitive as a lot of other clubs.” More than 60 members of the club gather monthly to review each other’s shots, critique each other’s work, share tips and connect with other photographers and mentors. It’s one of the Kanata Seniors’ Centre’s most well-attended clubs, Wilson said – probably because it’s just fun. That’s what brought Shirley LaClair, a new resident of Shirley’s Brook, back for her second meeting on Nov.1. “It’s very interactive and very friendly,” said LaClair, who was a member of a more competitive photography club in her former home-

town of St. John’s. “It can be daunting,” she said. “(This) is more like a social group – it’s not as competitive.” The group is also treated to presentations during each meeting. On Nov. 1, staff from Henry’s in Kanata brought some new photographic goodies to show off in advance of the holiday gift-giving season. Next month, members will learn how to make web-based photo albums to share with friends and family. Professional photographers and photojournalists are also frequent presenters, Wilson said. “It allows them to extend their knowledge in a way they haven’t before,” Wilson said. A favourite feature of the club are its three “shoot out” excursions each year to places like the Beaver Pond. The outdoor shootouts happen in spring and fall and there in an indoor-session during the winter. Shooting in a group and seeing the different ways fellow photographers approach the same visuals is a great learning experience, Wilson said. “When they work up the courage they really get that personal satisfaction,” Wilson said. Anyone can join the photography club if they are age 55 or over and a member of the Kanata Senior’s Cen-

No wheels on this bus Walking school bus an active alternative to driving Jessica Cunha

News - It was an unseasonably warm but blustery morning as five elementary students set off on the walk to school on Nov. 1. Sixyear-old Jackson Walker and his sister Kailee, 7, Samuel Milley, 7, and five-year-old Josh and sister Hannah McCarthy, 5, met at the corner of Thunderbird Crescent and Stonemeadow Drive for the first “walking school bus.” Samuel’s mother, Sharon Jollimore, was the figurative driver of one of three walking school buses to Roch Carrier Elementary School in Bridlewood. “There’s designated points in the neighbourhood near the school where parent volunteers are picking up the children and then taking them the rest of the way to school,” said Jollimore. Walking school buses will be available every Friday until the end of the school year,

said Jollimore. “Ideally, we’d like to have some major points along the route covered off by more parents ... to try and get more kids walking,” she said. “I think we would like to see at least half of our school population (walking).” Roch Carrier boasts 460 students, of which 100 are eligible for a yellow school bus. That leaves another 360 students that need to find an alternative way to school. “Kids are getting dropped off by cars too much,” said Grade 6 student Jacob Montgomery, 10. Jacob and his classmate Obay Alshaer, 11, gave a presentation to the school on the benefits of walking school buses on Oct. 31. They walked to school with two other students and two parent volunteers the following day. “There are only two buses for the school,” said Obay, adding that walking to school is great exercise and a way to stay healthy. “We don’t want anybody to get obese.” “It’s more friendly to the environment,” added Jacob, saying that by walking, there is less gas consumed and fewer emissions from cars. It’s also safer for students. With four schools along Stonehaven Drive, the roadway is often choked

with cars during the morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up, said Rhonda Boudreau, who orchestrated the walking school bus for Roch Carrier. “There’s just too many vehicles,” she said. “We need to realize we need to be a better role model ... we need to take the extra 15 minutes to walk to school.” She and Jollimore added they are looking for additional parent volunteers to lead walking school buses in their areas. And parents don’t have to volunteer every Friday, said Jollimore. If enough volunteers sign up, they can switch off with others in their areas. Principal Nicole Turpin said she’s looking forward to the walking program growing at Roch Carrier. She had a walking school bus at her old school, Churchill Alternative. She said parents who were unable to walk with their children would drop them off at the walking school bus stop instead of at the doors to the building. “A lot of schools are going that route,” said Turpin. Roch Carrier is registered with Active and Safe Routes to School, which helps promote healthy alternatives for school travel.


Students from Roch Carrier Elementary School in Bridlewood take part in the first ‘walking school bus’ on Nov. 1.

Zoning Study on Building Buil Heights in Kanata Public Meeting Monday, November 18, 2013 7 to 9 p.m. Kanata Recreation Complex – Hall A 100 Walter Baker Place The City of Ottawa Planning and Growth Management Department is undertaking a Zoning Study on building heights in the Kanata Town Centre and at key intersections throughout Kanata North and Kanata South.

Writing contest aims to educate youth on human trafficking Sambles, a volunteer with PACT-Ottawa. “This year we thought it would be a good idea to get young people involved,” said Sambles, who lives in Village Green in Kanata. “Give them a forum where they can express themselves, but also for it to be around a subject that is so crucial.” Global slavery is at its highest point in history, she said,

Jessica Cunha

News - Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking Humans (PACT-Ottawa) is hoping to tap into youths’ creativity through a writing contest for its End Slavery Day event. The contest is targeted at high school, university and college-age students, but anyone can apply, said Sarah

with an estimated 27 million people being used as slaves. “We know it’s a massive issue,” said Sambles. The topic for the writing contest is global trafficking, and entries can be submitted in the form of a poem, letter, song, short story, personal essay or memoir, or a script for a film or play. There is no word limit. There are various aspects

of human trafficking, said Sambles. They include child labour, sexual exploitation, forced marriages and bonded labour – where a child is born into slavery because the parents are slaves. The contest aims to get young people talking about a global issue that is also happening at home. “Unfortunately it does happen here under our noses. There have been stories in the paper about an event last year where teenagers trafficked other teenagers. That’s happening right here in Ottawa,” said Sambles. “Young people are crucial;

they are creative and they’ve got lots of ideas,” she added. “The younger you can educate someone the earlier they change their general outlook.” END SLAVERY DAY

PACT-Ottawa created End Slavery Day six years ago, in support of the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery. The winner of the writing contest will have the opportunity to read his or her piece aloud at the event, or have a PACT member read it to the audience, as well as a gift from 10 Thousand Villages.

There are also prizes for the second- and third-place winners. This year’s event will be held on Dec. 2 at the Bronson Centre, and includes a guest speaker, a guided tour of the continents with a focus on a different form of trafficking, as well as information about fair trade goods. “Each year we try to do something to raise awareness about the issue of trafficking and get the community involved,” said Sambles. Tickets for the event are $5 for students and $10 for adults. For more information, email

News - Parents in Ottawa might be getting nervous after hearing word of a vote that could affect how their kids get to school. On Oct. 31, it was announced that members of the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority-Educational Support Professionals bargaining unit of the Secondary School Teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Federation had voted unanimously in favour of a strike mandate. The workers covered by the bargaining unit are responsible for arranging and co-ordinating transportation for the English public and Catholic school boards in Ottawa, as well as for visually and hearing impaired children under the Provincial Schools Authority. Together, approximately 60,000 students could be affected by the vote. Bargaining unit president Nancy Akehurst stated in a media release that the workers have been operating without a contract since August of 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to negotiate a fair agreement for our members who have been patiently waiting for a deal with our employer for

over a year,â&#x20AC;? said Akehurst. OSSTF president Paul Elliott touted the unanimous vote as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sign of solidarityâ&#x20AC;? that demonstrates support of the collective bargaining process. OSTA general manager Vicky Kyriaco was quick to allay fears of a potential strike, stating that â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing is a done deal,â&#x20AC;? and that the process of negotiating the contract for September, 2012 to

How to Sell Your Kanata Home Without an Agent and Save the Commission Ottawa ON - If you've tried to sell your home yourself, you know that the minute you put the "For Sale by Owner" sign up, the phone will start to ring off the hook. Unfortunately, most calls aren't from prospective buyers, but rather from every real estate agent in town who will start to hound you for your listing. Like other "For Sale by Owners", you'll be subjected to a hundred sales pitches from agents who will tell you how great they are and how you can't possibly sell your home by yourself. After all, without the proper information, selling a home isn't easy. Perhaps you've had your home on the market for several months with no offers from qualified buyers. This can be a very frustrating time, and many homeowners have given up their dreams of selling their homes themselves.But don't give up until

you've read a new report entitled "Sell Your Own Home" which has been prepared especially for homesellers like you. You'll find that selling your home by yourself is entirely possible once you understand the process. Inside this report, you'll find 10 inside tips to selling your home by yourself which will help you sell for the best price in the shortest amount of time. You'll find out what real estate agents don't want you to know. To order a FREE Special Report, visit Get your free special report NOW to learn how you really can sell your home yourself.

The focus of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is child safety. We work in collaboration with families and community partners to resolve any concerns or struggles parents may be faced with. We provide the family with support to ensure children and youth receive safe and nurturing care, while staying at home. If a child does come into care, CASO continues to provide support so that the family, if possible, can be reunited. When a child comes into the permanent care of the Society, a permanency plan is created. This plan may include living with kin, legal custody, or adoption. Customary care is also an option for First Nation, Inuit and Métis children, which allows a child to live with a caregiver identified by the child’s community. Everyone should know the support of a strong foundation . It is our goal to provide all children and youth in care with long-term supportive relationships. These bonds can come in many forms, just like the children and youth in our care.

Remembering Valérie Eric Goneau is surrounded by volunteers prior to the start of the third annual Valérie’s Flutter Foundation gala event, which took place on Nov. 2 at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre. The gala event was held in honour of Eric’s sister Valérie, who was just 20 when she died from a rare form of cancer called chondroblastic osteosarcoma. But even as she underwent treatment, she was inspired to help others through public speaking, and established Valérie’s Flutter Foundation. The evening raised $50,000 in support of the Ottawa Health Research Institute. From left to right are volunteers Daria Spencer, Sophie Deslauriers, Maryse Deslauriers, Goneau, Tesia Bryski, Emilie Gundlach, and Stephanie Bertrand.

Community – Hazeldean Lodge celebrated its 100th anniversary on Oct. 26. The Freemasons also held a ceremony of rededication of the lodge building, located on Young Road in Kanata. “Today shows the dedication of our brothers 100 years ago,” Grand Master Donald Campbell said during the event. “Put yourself back then and say ... who would have thought 100 years from now that Hazeldean Lodge would still be up and running , very active in the community, attracting good men and making them better men within the community. “Masonry is not a secret society, it’s a learning institution,” he said. “Our main function is education, and to help the welfare of the community.” Freemasonry was one of the first institutions brought into the Ottawa Valley by the pioneers. In Richmond, Goodwood Lodge No. 159, was formally initiated in 1863. By the beginning of the 20th century, Goodwood Lodge had grown in popularity to the point that many of the members were travelling for several kilometres over extremely difficult country roads to attend Masonic meetings. Dispensation for the new lodge was granted on June 20, 1913. The warrant for the new lodge #517 was formerly issued on July 15, 1914. “This lodge has done very well, especially in the last decade we are one of the fastest growing lodges in the district on this side of the province so I am very pleased we have a lot of younger men and family members joining as well so that brings a new perspective to things. “ said Richard Reeve, master of Hazeldean Lodge. The brethren acquired a lot in the village of Hazeldean from the Young Family and began construction in the summer of 1914. Work was completed that fall at a cost to the members of $3,180, with the lodge being duly consecrated on Oct. 9, 1914. By the end of 1914, the lodge had grown to 34 members. Campbell, assisted by other Grand Lodge officers including this year’s serving district deputy grand master, of District 1, Right Worshipful Brother Dario Mancuso, a past master of and member of Hazeldean Lodge and also a resident of Kanata, presided over the special anniversary ceremonies. Joining the Hazeldean Lodge members for this special occasion were many visiting Masons from across Ontario and the U.S. To begin the planned hour-long ceremony, The grand master and offi-

cers from the Grand Lodge of Ontario were given the gavel by the lodge master. The grand master began the festivities by rededicating the lodge after which members were also rededicated. Each Hazeldean Masonic member was then presented with new lodge regalia. The new regalia features gold coloured accents signifying that the lodge is 100 years old. Also, a new mosaic rug, that had been woven in England, was dedicated and revealed for the first time. Before concluding the inside festivities, the grand master called worshipful brothers Bill Bradley and Glen Scott forward to pay the special honors. Bill Bradley was cited for 60 years and Glen Scott for 50 years as a past masters of Hazeldean Lodge. Following the meeting members gathered outside to witness the unveiling of a new marker stone, situated at the north east corner of the building. The stone signifies the 100 years of Hazeldean Lodge. The members were joined by Mayor Jim Watson and Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who together unveiled the special stone as more than 100 Masons looked on and cheered. Mayor Watson also presented a commemorative certificate, on behalf of the city, marking the 100th anniversary to the master of Hazeldean Lodge. Both Watson and Wilkinson in their congratulatory remarks spoke of the impact that the lodge has had on Kanata over the past 100 years.

Technology shattering boundaries in rural Africa Education without Boundaries

Community - Remote Zambian village schools are enjoying access to digital library resources that urban schools can only dream about video lessons, Wikipedia information, reading books, medical handbooks designed for village needs all without the need for Internet access. This is the latest chapter in a project led by a Kanata-

based charity, Education without Boundaries (EWB). The project is called Ukumfwana, a Bemba word that means “working together.” Katiye is a typical village in Zambia’s eastern province. The six-kilometre journey into the village follows a rutted dirt road that winds through cotton farms. Vehicles move with great care and passengers must disembark from time to time to lighten the load. Most

villagers live in mud houses: the scenes are reminiscent of age-old villages. In Katiye, hundreds of children are being educated at a community school. Through the efforts of the local school committee, a solid new cement-block building has been completed alongside a traditional mud and thatchroofed building. As of Sept. 28, the school proudly boasts solar power.

The charity`s co-founders Bob and Beth Carson have just returned from a month in Zambia launching phase II of the Ukumfwana project. Community schools in rural and urban centres have received tablet computers and a Promise hub that provides the equivalent of a wall full of books all in a small packet about the size of a cassette tape. What is a Promise hub? It is essentially a batterypowered mini-computer that broadcasts content from flash drives or SD cards to tablets, computers or smartphones. Fairly new technology a Raspberry Pi box creates a closed-web system for classroom-wide use. Up to 12 devices can be receiving 12

different programs simultaneously. Content ranges from Khan Academy lessons to the charity`s own teacher’s manuals. Phase I of the project in 2011 provided eight schools with netbooks, and funded the installation of solar power at one remote site. Phase II has added more schools and has provided solar systems to three more sites so schools can charge the new equipment. An unexpected bonus was the intense interest of Zambian officials at the easternprovince`s Ministry of Education offices. The group was prepared for a routine information session, but individuals quickly realized that this was a hands-on experience.

They sprang into action, activating their own computers and discovering how easy it was to access content. One official has promised to investigate opportunities for community schools to get electronic copies of government curriculum. Founded in 2000 by Robert and Beth Carson, Education without Boundaries is a Canadian registered charity focused on assisting African schools by providing curriculum and supplies for children and training for para-professional teachers. Education without Boundaries assists existing non-governmental organizations in Africa. For more information visit the website

Infill rules would do little in post-war neighbourhoods: residents Infill will still be incompatible if committee of adjustment has the final word, participants say Laura Mueller

News - Increasing the size of back and side yards is fine, residents told city planners during an Oct. 29 meeting, but what about front yards? The information session and workshop on the second phase of the city’s new rules to make infill better fit into existing neighbourhoods revealed a conundrum for “outer urban” neighbourhoods – the post-war areas that were suburbs of the former city of Ottawa. When the city first looked at infill rules last year, it created rules for front yards, parking and trees for the core urban neighbourhoods – but not the old suburbs. Now that the second phase of the study has been expanded at the wishes of councillors, city planners are faced with a set of rules that have a glaring hole for the outerurban neighbourhoods: no front-yard rules. “I don’t know how you can deal with side yards and back yards without dealing with front yards,” Fisher Heights Community Association president Bob McCaw said, encapsulating the confusion expressed by many of the 15 or so participants at the meeting at the Nepean Sportsplex. Hand-tied city planners tried to explain how they planned to ask city council to apply parts of the first phase of the infill rules – especially those that deal with front yards – to outer urban neighbourhoods that weren’t included in that study. That can’t happen until appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board are wrapped up – hopefully before Part 2 of the rules is considered by the planning committee on March 25, said Steve Gauthier, the planner in charge of the project. In the meantime, existing frontyard setback distances still apply, he said. Overall, the participants didn’t express many qualms with the rules Gauthier presented, which are intended to limit the size of new infill

homes without taking away property owners’ development potential – and with it, the value of their properties. For lots in many R1 subzones, which allow single-family homes, that means the maximum building height would be reduced from 11 metres and nine metres to 8.5 m. That would still allow a two-storey home with a pitched roof to be built, but it better reflects the pattern of building in neighbourhoods that have that zoning, Gauthier said. The old height limits were based purely on a bureaucratic exercise dating back to amalgamation, he said – the average height limits for the zoning from the former municipalities was applied. That meant some areas have higher allowable building heights than what had actually been LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND constructed. The new rules aim to fix City planner Steve Gauthier presents new rules for infill homes during an information session and that discrepancy, Gauthier said. workshop at the Nepean Sportsplex on Oct. 29. The trick is not to match the exact sizes of current homes, but to allow Public Vehicle/Equipment Auction progress through intensification, he said. “That’s where we have to be careful not to freeze development in time,” 9:00 am Gauthier said. “We had to find a balCivic #2250, County Road 31, Winchester, ON ance between intensification that’s 613-774-7000 or 1-800-567-1797 being promoted and neighbourhood character.” Primary list at: The new rules also look at things like putting more space between houses and limiting the distance things like staircases and balconies can project into side yards.

City to revive Arts Court project with extra $8 million Laura Mueller

News - Despite the federal government’s rejection of a $9 million grant request, the city is forging ahead with an ambitious plan to redevelop Arts Court. The finance committee will be asked to kick in an extra $8.2 million to get the project going, making the total cost to the city is now $34 million compared to $31.7 million estimated in 2011. It’s worth it, said Mayor Jim Watson. “There was a strong desire, certainly on my part, to see that we invest in a significant facility for arts and culture in the downtown core,” he said. “When you look at all of our big capital spending projects, they are primarily recreation and in the suburbs … and there was really no significant infrastructure project in the downtown core.” The project might still see a bit of money from the Canada Cultural Spaces fund, said SAW Video director Penny McCann. She said some of the groups that will be tenants in the new building plan to apply to the grant program to cover the cost of equipment and fixtures as part of the $3.2 million the groups will be required to contribute. The lion’s share of that will be paid through fundraising efforts led by the Ottawa Art Gallery, McCann said. Fundraising that amount isn’t a burden on the groups, who see the project as a partnership between them and the city, she said. And it’s nothing new, she added. “We as organizations have already contributed significantly to our space,” she said. “We didn’t sit back and wait for the city to improve our spaces for us.” The city will shift $2 million in savings on more limited upgrades to the Ottawa Baseball Stadium and $1 million from a cancelled film studio into the Arts Court project. Another $1.6 million per year in operating money the city had already budgeted for 201416 – totaling $4.8 million – because the new facility was expected to have opened will instead be used to build it. The city also thinks it can get more money – $4.5 million – for the air rights for a privately developed tower on the northeast corner of the property. Also, a $6 million provincial grant has accrued an extra $500,000 in interest. Financial pressures, changing needs and a more detailed level of design mean the new Arts Court plans look a bit different than those presented in the spring. The changes would completely remove a

350-seat theatre that was contemplated in previous plans. The theatre would have required more space than originally thought – at double the cost – so the city is planning to build a 250seat screening and multi-purpose room in its place. A smaller screening room was originally supposed to be built in a repurposed space inside the existing facility, which the city determined is not actually feasible. McCann was very pleased by the investment in space proposed for the media arts. “Media arts have grown in this building and has surpasses capacity in all levels,” she said. “We’re very excited about the project.” The Arts Court Theatre’s space at 2 Daly St. wouldn’t be affected by that change, its spokesman Greggory Clark said, and neither would the Ottawa Dance Directive, according to its executive director, Yvonne Coutts. The change doesn’t mean the new centre would be smaller, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, it just means a change to how the space is being divvied up. “Sure, it’s a different plan,” Fleury said. “It’s that it’s just not needed. We have to make choices in a project. I think we’re still delivering on the vision.” It was decided that a large new theatre space was redundant because other venues nearby, including the Bytowne Cinema and the Frenchlanguage theatre, La Nouvelle Scène, offer similar-sized spaces. The Ottawa Art Gallery would get slightly more space on five floors and two mezzanine SUBMITTED floors instead of three floors, as originally Preliminary images show a rough idea of what an expansion of Arts Court would look planned. like, including the size of a tower that could be built by a private developer as a way for The University of Ottawa would also receive the city to generate revenue for the project. – and pay for – a larger space in the expanded facility. The university’s share would jump from 891 square metres to 1,610 square metres, including the planned blackbox theatre and the addition of four classrooms. A reduction in parking is more concerning for Fleury. While residents who live in the city’s core can easily hop on transit to get to Arts Court, many patrons come from farther afield and will need to drive, he said. “For some of the arts groups, that’s worrisome,” he said. A 160-space parking garage may not be enough, but there are a couple ways around it. If the developer who buys the air rights to build a residential, hotel or office tower at the northeast corner of the site wants more parking, the company could pay to build it. It’s also possible to work out agreements with nearby hotels and the Rideau Centre to have patrons use their parking garages, Fleury said. If everything goes to the city’s new plan, a bigger Arts Court would open in 2017.

Condo towers aren’t healthy, expert says Laura Mueller

News - Urban psychologist Suzanne Crowhurst Lennard delivered a warning against a proliferation of condo towers during a speech Oct. 23. Suburbs aren’t the only isolating environment for people to live in, she told a crowd gathered for her Urban Forum talk at city hall. Living in towers can be very lonely, too. “People who have neighbours and acquaintances they meet daily don’t get sick as often as those who are isolated,” Crowhurst Lennard said. “The social fabric we’ve invented is what is helping keep us well.” Crowhurst Lennard is an architect but her work focuses on how architecture and city-making affects social interaction, health and quality of life. Much of her research involves how to make cities and spaces more liveable for children and seniors. Public spaces like squares and parks are the most important factor, especially for children, she said. It’s where they learn about social interaction, social roles and empathy for people who are different from them, she said. “We need these kinds of places where an intergenerational community can develop,” Crowhurst Lennard said.


Suzanne Growhurst Lennard, co-founder of the International Making Cities Livable Conferences, was the guest speaker for Urban Forum Ottawa on Oct. 23. Children and teens are spending an increasing amount of time alone, she said – an average of 3.5 hours a day for teens, which is more time than they spend with family and friends. So it’s not surprising that social anxiety disorder is also on the rise, she said. “Shyness is epidemic,” she said. “This medical problem has now come about because young people aren’t getting enough socialization.” A similar effect is happening in the elderly population, Crowhurst

Lennard said. “Both extremes cause social isolation,” she said. Cities need a mix of public spaces to boost people’s health and happiness, she said. True public spaces, like public squares, are key, but semi-private spaces like outdoor cafes and farmers’ markets are also important “hosts” in the public realm. That’s fine, Michael Mizzi, the city’s chief of development review, said during the discussion. But he

said the conundrum is homebuyers are still making the comparatively less-healthy choice of living in the suburbs. “All these people who live on quaint cul-de-sacs in suburbia travel to these urban squares on vacations to Europe,” he said. “Yet they choose to live where they live. “(Developers) are only building what the people want,” he said. Crowhurst Lennard said the narrative is shifting away from the suburbs being sold as “the” place to raise a

family, but there is still progress to be made in ensuring urban cores have the facilities and spaces people need. But the urban fabric around those places is what is needed to support life in public spaces, Crowhurst Lennard said. Dense development is key, but it’s also ideal for shops, restaurants and other types of businesses to be mixed into the residential areas, Crowhurst Lennard said. She promotes something like the Paris model, where most buildings are six storeys tall, but they are packed together with shops on the ground floors. Ensuring businesses and services are located where people live promotes independent mobility for all ages – both children and seniors can get around more easily when they don’t have to travel far. That also means traffic calming and promoting walking and cycling are needed in order to make that mobility work. Gentrification can also have a negative impact on health if it prices lower-income residents out of their neighbourhoods, said Crowhurst Lennard. The same public spaces that help keep people healthy also make the area more desirable – and therefore, more expensive. “It’s a problem no city has actually solved,” she said.

Remembrance Day held in high regard


other was always concerned that we five children didn’t have the proper respect for the true meaning of Remembrance Day. The school at Northcote with only 18 pupils, had no piano and the few county officials were already involved with the ceremony in the town of Renfrew, and so there was little in the way of observance at the school. For this reason, Mother, each year, piled all of us into the Model T and headed into town where, as she put it, there would be a proper and fitting ceremony to remember those who had fallen in the First World War. Mother’s three young brothers had all been in the army, even though Mother said they weren’t old enough to vote, but they were old enough to fight in the war. By the way Mother talked about her brothers, I wondered if they perhaps had won the war singlehandedly. Without fail, the weather was always dreadful on Remembrance Day. We would drive through freezing rain

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories or snow, it seemed, and at a very young age I wondered if the terrible weather had something mysterious to do with the sombreness of the day. And so when we headed into Renfrew, we were bundled up like mummies with hats and mitts and winter boots. We certainly wouldn’t have the luxury of wearing slacks on such a day and even though I usually hated them with a passion, I was very grateful for the heavy navy blue, fleecelined bloomers over our long underwear and long beige, ribbed stockings. But it never mattered how much clothes we had on, there was always a piercing wind rolling down Raglan Street where the parade took place at the war memorial and it penetrated our bodies and had us shivering like

leaves on tree. The children from the Renfrew schools always marched to the place where the ceremony was held. We five country children were very aware that we weren’t really a part of a group, but that certainly didn’t matter to our mother. She would wait until the town school pupils had formed perfect lines, looking neither left nor right, and would march the five of us right up to the front row, and position us so that we were actually an extension of the line-up of town kids. My older sister Audrey was most embarrassed, but her protests did nothing to sway our Mother. The town children had sheets of music and we would shudder in embarrassment when we would

see Mother walk right over to a teacher, whisper in her ear, and then point to us. We would then see her head back to us with five sheets of music. For reasons much beyond my comprehension, someone from the town ranks of pupils always fainted. Just as sure as death and taxes, as soon as the person leading the program opened his mouth, one or two would topple over. If the overcome person was a girl, the teacher would rush up, fan her with the sheet music, and if that didn’t help, she would be carried off with her eyes rolled into the back of her head. But if it was a boy pupil who had succumbed to the pressures of the day and toppled over, he was left to lie there until he either revived on his own or the ceremony ended. Emerson said, on the way home, “those Renfrew kids are a sickly lot ... certainly none of us ever fell over in a dead faint.” After all the war songs had been sung, out of the crowd would come a very old man with a shiny trumpet tucked under his arm. He

would walk the full length of the parade area, and he wore a soldier’s uniform that obviously had been borrowed. His hands were all but covered with the cuffs and the pant legs bagged over his swath-covered legs. He was very elderly and Mother, ever the one to add drama to any situation, said he probably fought in the Boer

his arms swinging, marched back down the street to where Mother had parked the Model T. On the road back to Northcote we would be subjected once again to Mother’s stories of how her own brothers went off to war and often her voice would catch with the memory. But we knew she was filled with pride and I

Mother’s three young brothers had all been in the army, even though Mother said they weren’t old enough to vote, but they were old enough to fight in the war. By the way Mother talked about her brothers, I wondered if they perhaps had won the war singlehandedly. War. He played the trumpet loud and clear as a bell, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd. The Renfrew children were the first to march off the parade grounds and Emerson, not to be outdone by kids from town, turned on the heal of his gum-rubbers and with

too would be caught up in the stories. I would think of those uncles, who returned safely from battle unscarred and I would think I was related to true war heroes. Then I would know, even though I was very young, why Remembrance Day was so important to our mother.

2013 Craft Christmas Gift Sale


The cost to fix the sinkhole in September 2012 ran several million dollars – including shipping and replacement pipe – and took significantly longer to fix than the St. Joseph Boulevard problem.

Sinkhole fix comes with $2,000 labour cost Brier Dodge

News - The quick fix for the recent sinkhole that opened on St. Joseph Boulevard wasn’t nearly as costly as last year’s major sinkhole on highway 174. The sinkhole was fixed in about

28 hours from Oct. 7 to 8, and cost the city $2,037 in overtime payments. “As part of the annual budgeting process, the city’s environmental services department allocates a portion of its budget to cover costs of this kind,” said Tammy Rose, the city’s man-

ager of drinking water services in an email. The cost to fix the sinkhole in September 2012 ran several million dollars – including shipping and replacement pipe – and took significantly longer to fix than the St. Joseph Boulevard problem.

Too much money is being spent on partisan government advertising when really that kind of money could be spent on programs such as health care. MP DAVID MCGUINTY

McGuinty said he introduced the bill after hearing from constituents who were concerned about the Conservative governments’ spending. The bill will not affect pro-

vincially-run advertisements. According to an advertising report and recent cabinet approvals, from 2006 to 2012 the federal government spent $548.6 million dollars on advertising, said McGuinty. It is expected that for the fiscal years ending 2013 and 2014, another $121 million is projected to be spent. The total is almost $670 million since taking office, he said. “That’s an extraordinary amount of money,” he said. “Sixty millions dollars could fund any one of the following: 30 MRI machines, 1,000 registered nurses’ salaries for one year, 20,000 hip, knee and cataract surgeries, or 8,500 insulin pumps for our kids coping with Type 1 diabetes.” “Every member of Parliament from every party, including the government members, cannot look their constituents in the eyes and justify this spending.” “I’m calling on my colleagues from all sides of the House to support this bill and work with me to eliminate partisan advertising once and for all.” The bill has gone through a first reading, and now McGuinty is looking to obtain support from his colleagues.

Sports - The Ottawa SkyHawks have announced the final team roster, and both native Ottawa players who attended training camp have made the final cut. Eric Kiby, a St. Matthew High School graduate, and Manock Lual, a Rideau High School graduate, will be part of the 12-person basketball team playing their inaugural season in the league this year. “Making cuts is never an easy process; we had a group of very talented men which made the decision process very difficult.” said the SkyHawks head coach Kevin Keathley in a press release.

“In the end sometimes it comes down to a numbers game.” The final roster was announced on Oct. 30 after two exhibition games the weekend prior. The SkyHawks won both the exhibition games on the road. “It was a challenge to select,” said co-owner Gus Takkale in the release. “Coach K and I have had some sleepless nights.” The team held training camp at the YMCA in Orléans in the lead up to the decision. The other players on the team’s roster include Jerice Crouch, Fred Sturdivant, Jermaine Johnson, Tirrell Baines, Jamie Vanderbeken, Jamal Crook, Justin Tubbs, Mike Rose, Demetrius Jemison and Ryan Anderson.

Ottawa doctors host impromptu fundraiser for Ottawa Mission Michelle Nash

News - A group of Ottawa doctors emptied their wallets to help out a local palliative care facility

recently. One hundred doctors held a conference at the beginning of October to discuss end-of-life needs and palliative care services and it was there that some of the organizers,

including Manotick family practitioner Dr. Alykhan Abdulla, asked those in attendance to donate some money to the Ottawa Mission’s Diane Morrison Hospice. “We were there, motivated to

Barrhaven welcomes first health food store! Residents of Barrhaven and Manotick now have healthy choices closer to home as Kardish Health Food Centre opens its newest location at the corner of Strandherd Drive and Woodroffe Avenue. The new store, which opened October 21, is the seventh location for this local, family-owned health food chain.

in the mission’s hospice. For the doctors, Abdulla said what he saw was a group of individuals motivated to help make significant changes with how palliative care is provided in the Ottawa region. “What’s amazing about physicians is that they are motivated to do good. You give them a challenge and they rise to it,” he said. “There has been a lot of controversy about end-of-life, and physicians want to have a conversation about dying. They are interested in making sure that the right things are being discussed and done.” Abdulla said part of those things discussed at the conference were to make sure patients know what their options are. “It’s about giving them information,” he said. “It’s about having conversations about personal care.” Abdulla has been practicing family medicine for more than 20 years, but it has only been in the past year that he has been training with a small group of local doctors to offer palliative care services to the community. He started his palliative care training by shadowing another doctor. “It’s a completely different mind-set,” he said. “You are not actually fixing things, you are having conversations, you are letting them know and feel empowered. And it’s about getting the patients the right kind of medications. It’s really about spending the time to listen and guide people through the process.”

Store Manager and Registered Holistic Nutritionist Jennifer Kane is a Barrhaven native who has been working with Kardish for more than two years. She looks forward to playing a part in helping her own neighbourhood become informed about healthier alternatives and she invites anyone who has never (or ever) set foot in a health food store to come in for a visit.

Kardish has a rich history in Ottawa that dates back to 1979. Kardish owners, Robert and Carey Assaf, grew up in Ottawa and worked alongside their father, Michael, in a Kardish store the family owned back when the chain was run as a franchise. Throughout the years, the two brothers played various roles in the family business, eventually acquiring full ownership of the company in 2010. Since then, they have worked together to grow the company and have opened three new stores across the city. Now with more than 50 employees, a team of dynamic managers, and

talk about end-of-life,” Abdulla said. “One of the things we wanted to do is get a conversation going and because we had a group of all in one room, we thought it would be even better to get doctors to give a donation for an organization that was in most need.” The idea to donate that particular hospice, Abdulla said, was because of a fellow doctor at the conference. “Jeff Turnbull has a history with the mission, so we decided to help their palliative care facility,” he said. Turnbull’s organization, Ottawa Inner City Health, provides health services to the palliative care beds at the Ottawa Mission. The doctors collected $2,800 to be able to purchase a blood testing machine. Priced at $2,500, the doctors used the remaining funds to buy blankets, socks and underwear for the mission. “It will give our hospice clients easier access to blood results, especially those with different diseases,” said Shirley Roy, spokeswoman for the mission. The machine offers faster intervention and less hassle for blood work because it involves only a finger prick. “We just really appreciate the recognition that these people are vulnerable; this type of donation promotes easier access to health care.” Roy added the support that this group of doctors has offered to the mission reinforces the commitment staff has to help the homeless

Ottawa actress part of new David Cronenberg project Stephanie La Rochelle part of futuristic multimedia art show Emma Jackson

Arts – At only 19, Greely actress Stephanie La Rochelle has entered the weird and warped world of Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg. La Rochelle, who made national headlines as a finalist on CBC’s Over the Rainbow competition to find Canada’s best Dorothy last year, has left Greely for greener pastures – Toronto – and has now landed herself a role in Cronenberg’s latest futuristic project. The concept, called

Body/Mind/Change, builds on his fictional biotechnology ideas from previous films like Scanners and Videodrome to create an interactive videogame experience for online users. The idea revolves around the POD (personal on-demand), a biotech implant that claims to know what you want before you do. “POD reinvents the recommendation engine to make discovering the things you need, love or desire effortless,” a website explanation reads. “This state of the art biotech implant will guarantee you personalized recommendations that are 99.999 per cent relevant all the time. POD grows with you to become an intuitive companion, enhancing your life and storing the best that the world has to offer for immediate recall at any time. After a light training period, POD will be able to predict your deepest unfulfilled desires – even the ones you didn’t

know you had.” The multi-media project is part of a tribute to Cronenberg through the TIFF Bell Lightbox theatre. “It’s a little strange,” La Rochelle said. “Cronenberg’s projects are usually different. But it’s a cool concept.” La Rochelle plays a 14year-old girl in the interactive video game, which is a younger flashback version of a character named Elena. Every so often the game flashes back to the younger Elena with her brother. “When they were younger she went through a traumatic experience with him,” La Rochelle said. “It goes through times in their life when he was mean to her and she sort of gets back at him in a way.” La Rochelle didn’t want to give too much of the storyline away. She said working on a Cronenberg project is exciting, especially at such

an early stage of her career. “It’s incredible to be affiliated with such a big name,” she said. La Rochelle will soon start rehearsing for her role in the Sound of Music at Hamilton’s Theatre Aquarius, which will run between December and January. She said she is enjoying her life in Toronto. She has been taking classes while auditioning for roles. “Things are good,” she said. The singer said she wanted to come back to perform at the Greely Players Christmas concert at the end of November, but she will be too busy with rehearsals. Even if she can’t visit very often, La Rochelle said she still draws support from her Greely Players family. “I am always in contact with them,” she said. For more information about the Cronenberg projMORGAN PIIRONEN PHOTOGRAPHY ect visit bodymindchange. Greely native Stephanie La Rochelle is part of a new David Cronenberg ca. project in Toronto.

Arts - Leila Goldberger made the right decision to record her song Sisters, several years after she wrote and performed the song as a surprise gift at her own sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding. While it was frightening for her to put her song out in the public, it was rewarded with the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award from the Ontario Art Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very personal thing and easy to get sidetracked by self-doubt and fear,â&#x20AC;? Goldberger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided recently to just let that go and be myself. The award came shortly after.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been writing and performing songs since she was a child, including while a student at Cairine Wilson Secondary School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always written poems or songs or things like that, and I started playing guitar when I was probably about seven,â&#x20AC;?

she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;High schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I really started to write full songs.â&#x20AC;? Goldbergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister asked her to perform at her wedding several years ago. Instead of singing a generic cover, Goldberger wrote her own song about the relationship between sisters. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that song that won her the award from the Ontario Arts Council in October, at a gala dinner held in Mississauga. She won the award, called a songwriting award, though she performs all the songs that she writes. Besides singing, she plays the acoustic guitar on her own tracks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leila Goldberger was the clear winner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; her songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellence stood out throughout the competition,â&#x20AC;? said the jurors in a press release from the Ontario Arts Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We loved the melody, loved the idea and wanted a sister just like in the song.â&#x20AC;?

any upcoming performances in the area, but would like to start performing more often. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music is definitely something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to be doing more of, so this is serendipitous,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps me move in that direction. The plan now is to go back into the studio and record a debut album.â&#x20AC;? The award came with a $1,000 cash prize, which she plans to use to pay for studio time. Still living in OrlĂŠans, Goldberger works from home, operating a graphic design, project management and web design company. But sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to start spending more time on her music, and hopefully play some folk festivals in the near future. The song is available on iTunes, and can be found on the music website She can be found on Facebook under Leila Bird Music.

Don’t race ahead to get the early advantage this week, Aries. Practice patience in all that you do this week, and you may find greater success. Taurus, there is a high level of uncertainty in your life right now, so it is best to take a conservative approach regarding your finances. Take big decisions seriously. Keep your options open, as things look promising this week, Gemini. Many things will catch your eye, but you will have to make some tough decisions.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Cancer, your career takes an unexpected turn that leads you in an exciting new direction. But these changes may take a few weeks or even months to fully develop.

Leo, you may have your sights set on an exotic vacation, but you just don’t have the money to make it happen right now. Save for your dream getaway or take a quick jaunt to recharge. Virgo, you may prefer clearly defined relationships, but this week someone comes into your life who you just can’t read. This person makes a lasting impression.

Libra, although your vision for the future is grand, you may not know how to execute your rise to success right now. Find a mentor who can show you the ropes. Scorpio, you may not have the time to be a shoulder to cry on this week, but a trusted confidante will need your assistance. Take the time out for this special friend. You are not in complete control of your feelings this week, Sagittarius. Make a concerted effort to control your emotions when conflict arises. Capricorn, surprises are coming your way. Though you may want to control the situation, you have to sit back and let the chips fall where they may. Aquarius, don’t allow daydreaming to distract you from the tasks at hand. Distractions will only derail your plans, so do your best to keep them at a minimum. Pisces, an ongoing issue must be addressed this week. Proscratination will only delay the inevitable, so tackle this issue
