EMC news - Kanata residents say they feel blindsided by a last-minute revision and delay of a proposal to build a 100-unit condo building at 2 The Parkway. The planning committee was set to consider a 10-storey proposal for the contentious development, which has been under discussion for more than a year and led to the creation of a high-profile group of planners and Kanata residents launching a campaign to oppose the building. But after a last-minute huddle before the Nov. 27 meeting, the committee voted to defer the issue so the developer, Morley-Hoppner Group, can come back with a smaller, seven-storey proposal. Miguel Tremblay, a FoTenn senior planner who represents the developer, said they hope to bring a complete proposal back to the planning committee for its Dec. 11 meeting, although planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume said it might have to wait until the new year. OMB APPEAL

The developer already filed an Ontario Municipal Board appeal within the last month. See BEAVERBROOK, page 2

MADD volunteers handed out red ribbons to drivers to thank them for not drinking and driving. For the full story see page 23.

Food bank launches revolution Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The Kanata Food Cupboard announced a new initiative aimed to give people in the community more choice when it comes to the help they receive. The Fresh Food Revolution and grocery store concept – launched at the cupboard’s

location at 20 Young Rd. on Thursday, Nov. 22 – gives clients the chance to choose their own produce and food items for their families. “I think it gives them a little more dignity,” said Karen Waters, client co-ordinator at the food cupboard. People will be able to make their selection based on their own needs, food

restrictions and preferences instead of being given a predetermined hamper of food items. “The clients are overwhelmed with it,” said Waters. She said the feedback has been “all positive” since the cupboard implemented the Fresh Food Revolution earlier this fall.

Jenna Sudds, who sits on the food cupboard’s board of directors, came across the idea after seeing a similar initiative launched in Toronto and then in Perth. “We visited Perth, saw what they were doing, tweaked it...and flew with it,” she said.

Beaverbrook residents angered by new proposal Continued from page 1

Angry residents, including Kanata-Beaverbrook Community Association president Gary Sealey, accused the developer of pulling the plan “out of their back pocket” without any notice to the com-

munity. Tremblay said the community could have read the news on Coun. Marianne Wilkinson’s website or in a newspaper article. “I know from the community’s perspective there is discomfort because it appears

that it’s ever evolving, but that’s the nature of development work. It’s not one proposal moving forward, and that’s it,” Tremblay said. While a draft proposal has already been submitted to the planning department, Tremblay said he’s not ready to share it with the public. He offered a chance for community association representatives to preview the changes in a meeting with city planners, but the response from the community association representatives descended into a shouting match with Wilkinson outside the meeting. “But seriously, this should come through some reasonable way,” community association member Andrew Sterling said to Wilkinson. “The idea of something being done in the corridor …” Sterling continued before Wilkinson cut him off to say there is no harm in receiving information. Tremblay confirmed that Morley-Hoppner is looking at a seven-storey residential development with 90 to 100 units and one parking space for each unit in an underground parking lot and surface visitor parking. Tremblay wouldn’t confirm whether the new proposal might include a “projection” such as a service/ventilation room on the roof – something that irks the community group because it

The city’s planning committee has agreed to wait for the Morley Hoppner Group to present a new proposal for a condo mid-rise on 2 The Parkway in Beaverbrook. would add height above the listed number of storeys. ONTARIO MUNICIPAL BOARD

While several residents who spoke to the committee said they would prefer to see councillors vote on the existing staff report that recommended the committee reject the development proposal, Wilkinson supported delaying the matter. Giving a bit more time could provide a better result in the long run, she said. Hearing the matter on Nov. 27 could have resulted in the committee approving the nine-storey building, the Kanata North councillor said. Most importantly, Wilkinson said, the city could head off an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board if the community, staff and planning committee are happy with the new proposal. MorleyHoppner Group has already filed an appeal to the OMB based on the city missing development timelines. The irony of MorleyHoppner asking for another delay after filing an appeal on the basis of delays was not lost on Sealey.

“It seems that the developer is holding the threat of the OMB appeal over the planning committee’s head,” Sealey said. “But all the public speakers, all of the community, said ‘We don’t trust this.’ ... We don’t have any expectation that the developer will change his spots. “The developers are in control at city hall,” Sealey added. Kanata resident John Mlacak told the planning committee there have already been too many delays and too much ambiguity, and he would rather see the committee deal with the report recommending refusal of the rezoning. “Based on previous experience, we don’t think it would be an improvement,” Mlacak said. “I guess I’ve lost confidence. I don’t trust (the developer) in a future situation.” Planner Bill Teron, who is known as the “father of Kanata” for drafting the vision for the community, has called the proposal and process “a sham.” Wilkinson has said she supports the community’s request to limit the development to five storeys, but she was interested in hearing the seven-story proposal. “The only sensible thing

for us to do is give time to consider it,” she said. DELAYS

Debate surrounding the proposed development has gone on for 14 months. The Morley-Hoppner Group’s first submitted plan asked for the city to rezone the property at 2 The Parkway to allow for a 16-storey residential building with 125 units. The second revision by the developer included a 10-storey mid-rise residential building with 120 units, with an amenity area above the ninth storey. The release of a report by city planning staff has been delayed a number of times. The city’s recommendation was to be originally released on June 29, but was pushed back to Aug. 13 and then November. In the report the planning committee deferred on Nov. 27, city planning staff recommended councillors reject Morley-Hoppner Group’s request for rezoning in order to build a nine-storey (32-metre), 120-unit, with an exception for an “amenity area” on the roof, making it technically a 10-storey building.

Ottawa Riverkeeper looks ahead Steph Willems

EMC news - The staff and volunteers of the Ottawa Riverkeeper are determined to see the city’s sewage problem fixed once and for all. The grassroots charity, dedicated to monitoring and maintaining the ecological health of the Ottawa River watershed, reflected on past successes while looking forward to the future during a Nov. 22 event held at its Westboro offices. Since 2001, the Ottawa Riverkeeper has been collecting scientific information on the watershed, advocating for stricter environmental controls, and spreading awareness not just of the threats to the watershed, but also of the benefits and joy of recreation on the water. In recent years, the charity’s primary focus has been on pollution -- namely sewer overflows from Ottawa and

Gatineau, by far the largest population centres along the river’s 1,271-kilometre length. While progress has been made in stemming the overflows, a permanent solution has yet to be reached. “It’s an age-old problem, but there has been progress,” said Meredith Brown, official riverkeeper and executive director. “I’ve seen reports from the 1970s discussing the problem, but we have the political will now. We have the Ottawa River action plan now ... which put in real-time controls and has reduced the frequency of sewage overflows into the river.” The action plan was the first major step towards a permanent solution to sewage overflows, which, besides being a major pollution source, makes the river unenjoyable for swimmers and boaters many times each summer. There is still much work to be done, said Brown, and the coming years will see this remain as

That will take some bureaucratic wrangling, as the tunnels would infringe on National+ Capital Commission property. As well, environmental assessments associated with the project would

the group’s biggest focus. “The next thing would be underground storage tanks,” * said Brown, referring to what would actually be c long, narrow tunnels meant to accommodate overflow waste.

They were given a list of suggested items for a family of five and spent 15 minutes choosing items from the cupboard’s shelves. “People can have the dignity to choose for themselves,� said Levy. “It’s not just food; it’s also the notion of nutritious food... being provided with options.� Ottawa public health’s community food advisers were also on hand and demonstrated how to make easy and nutritious meals with items found on the food bank’s shelves, such as mixed bean salad. Levy said the Fresh Food Revolution gives people more of a balanced diet. “(People) can actually come and get fresh produce and recipes,� he said. “It’s really a complete package.� He said it costs a minimum of $745 a month to feed a family of four with healthy choices, something that is difficult for many to afford. “People in our community struggle to make ends meet; they might be our neighbours� Levy said. “Donations are what helps organizations like this...It lets people know they’re not alone and know there’s a place to go.� He added the Fresh Food Revolution “really is a package that’s a fundamental part of a healthy community.� The Kanata Food Cupboard helps about 200 families every month and distributes 113,000 kilograms of food each year.

Think twice before buying a puppy for Christmas To the editor: For many, the holiday season comes with the irresistible urge to purchase that cute puppy in the window. In stark contrast, January to March are the busiest months in rescues and shelters when countless dogs are dumped, and many healthy dogs are euthanized due to lack of space. Puppy millers force breeding over and over solely for profit. It is a multimillion-dollar, largely tax-free industry, reliant upon supply and demand. As an emergency rescue responder at a puppy mill, I am haunted by the images that I witnessed: the profound hope-

lessness in the eyes and body language of every dog, the result of immeasurable cruelty and abuse. That experience set me on a life-altering course to raise public consciousness to the hell that is puppy mills. The only way to end this cruel industry is to stop supporting it. This Christmas, if you are considering a family companion, visit local rescues and shelters and offer a deserving dog a chance to live, and at the same time, help end the atrocity of puppy mills.

Wildlife Refuge. There are lots of wonderful animals there. I especially liked the alpacas because they are so funny. The animals there really need hay! We found out it costs $250 for a truck load of hay and they need to drive over an hour just to get it and it only lasts for one week. They are trying to raise money in a craft fair so that they can get hay. I will be fortune telling as I did at the Cancer Carnival this summer. People will be selling magic wands, jewelry, toys and much more. If you want to donate to the wildlife refuge you can go to

Cancer Carnival and the concluding money was over $800. Next we set our sights into our school forest and cleaned it up so there was no more glass and garbage.

To the editor: Community Bible Church is delighted to announce that the Nov. 17th Sow Good Sale was very well received by the community again this year: we had a great response from our shoppers, our volunteers had fun and we even managed to top last years results. We are pleased to announce that the sale raised profits of just over $11,200, all of it flowing directly to the Seje (a village in Kenya) partnership. This money will allow the village to acquire a couple of acres of land which will be owned by and developed for agricultural by Seje villagers. The eventual produce from this land is expected to feed local orphans with any excess being sold to help to fund the Gracious Academy school, which was established in January 2012. Thank God, and thank you. Also thanks to our tireless crafters and volunteers. And thanks also to our corporate sponsors who helped us to once again keep our expenses low. We also gratefully received assistance from the two local Lion’s Clubs (Kanata-

How Ottawa got its game back


hoever says Ottawa is a town that fun forgot had better take a second look Following an announcement last week that a professional men’s basketball club is set to take up residence in the city later next year, the capital is starting to look like Canada’s sporting hotbed. Once the National Basketball League of Canada franchise starts up, it will add to the expanding roster of ath-

letic attractions in this city, potentially placing it second only to Toronto when it comes to professional sporting clubs. By the summer of 2015, we could boast National Hockey League, Canadian Football League, North American Soccer League and major league-affiliated baseball clubs. Also playing in the city are the Ottawa 67’s and varsity teams from two universities. Ottawa would be one of

the few NHL cities to also host a Canadian Hockey League franchise, and would be home to only the third MLB-affiliate baseball club outside of the Toronto Blue Jays and Vancouver Canadians. It doesn’t stop there either. Ottawa will play host to a pair of high-profile international women’s sporting events over the next few years in the form of the Women’s World Ice Hockey Championship and the Wom-

en’s World Cup, the top soccer tournament for female competitors. What does this say about the fortunes of a town that has in the recent past been considered a sporting basket case, one that lost its CFL club twice, its former Triple-A ball team in 2006 and nearly lost the Senators 10 years ago? Clearly Ottawa has its game back. That shouldn’t be too surprising though. Ottawans love being active. We love to

cycle, we love to canoe, we love to ski, we love to run. The Ottawa Race Weekend, for example, routinely draws tens of thousands of runners. The roads in the city are sprinkled with cars sporting racks to carry either boats or bikes. This passion for activity makes it rather natural for us to appreciate other athletic endeavours. The Senators regularly fill the 18,000plus seat Scotiabank Place. Despite the city’s passion

for the NHL, the 67’s are among the CHL attendance leaders. Interest in the Ottawa Fat Cats Intercounty Baseball League franchise helped prove Ottawa was still a viable market for a minor league baseball affiliate. If there’s action on the field, ice or court, Ottawans will be there. The city should be taking every opportunity to show the rest of the country, and the rest of the world for that matter, how passionate Ottawa is about sports and how it plays a significant role in making the capital an exciting, diverse place to live.


Progress doesn’t have to be awful CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


eeth have been publicly gnashed for several weeks over possible changes at the Elmdale Tavern in Hintonburgh. There is new ownership and Elmdale devotees, not all of whom have ever been there, fear the worst. The ’Dale will become a fern bar, or the modern equivalent thereof. Arugula salads will be served and Michael Bublé will be heard over the sound system. Never mind that no one has actually made any announcement to that effect, the concerns are understandable in a way because what they are really about it is a changing neighbourhood. People have watched this happen elsewhere and what they fear is a kind of homogeneity: the street fills with moderately upscale eateries and stores, patronized by moderately upscale people wearing moderately upscale casual clothes and driving moderately upscale cars. While nicer, it becomes indistinguishable from other moderately upscale neighbourhoods. In a larger sense, the Elmdale has come to stand in for a generalized lamenting of progress. Things change and we like them to stay the way they were, although we do like colour TV, don’t we, and email, the odd cappuccino and maybe even back-up cameras in new cars. Not that we wish the Elmdale any harm, having been there, but it is worth remembering that not all change is bad. In the heyday of the Ontario tavern, say 50 years ago, taverns were very different and not always in a good way. There were no windows onto the street. Women were not allowed or were segregated into one section of the place. You couldn’t pick up your beer and walk to another table.

You couldn’t even stand up with a beer in your hand. There were no games to play, no decent food, no live music. These were the rules, imposed by the province. The result of those rules was the only thing you could do in a tavern was drink. Which is what people did, with considerable enthusiasm, and then they went outside, got into their cars and drove home, not always without incident. Those who lament changing times sometimes forget that times can also change for the better. Most pubs today are brighter and cheerier. There is good food. There are as many women as men. There is live music or, failing that, screens to watch sports on. There is less emphasis on drinking, per se. The pub has become a place you can hang out without drinking a lot, or even anything, and you can probably get a ride home with someone who is sober. The Elmdale and other local institutions have moved a long way in this direction and that’s not a bad thing. The drinking culture has changed and, unlike some other cultural changes, this one is welcome. This is not to say that we should welcome a trend where every pub becomes like every other pub, every neighbourhood becomes like every other neighbourhood and every family looks like every other family. But we, owners and customers, hold the key to avoiding that. The owner is tempted to follow the safe route of imitating other successful businesses. But the enlightened owner knows the key to success lies in creating something original. Then we, the customers can go to this different business and feel original ourselves, until eventually there are too many of us being original in the same way and we have to move on to something different. It’s not easy, this stuff. As customers we probably don’t insist often enough on originality. We go where other people go, which is one of the reasons that chains thrive and threaten the uniqueness of old neighbourhoods. We could block that by supporting originals and helping them survive.

How not to win an argument





on Israel. They don’t like oil. They don’t like meat-eaters, but they don’t like people that eat imported food either. Whatever the subject of the day, the message is, “I don’t like the world, but it’s not my fault the world is like this.� To get this message across, the group uses a lot of hyperbole – including name-calling – comparing Stephen Harper to Hitler and other such ridiculous things. Finally, one day, I got fed up. This group claims to represent the other 99 per cent. So they’re supposed to represent me, right? I’m not a bank, nor an oil company. The last time I checked, as a freelancer, I don’t work for the establishment either. In a way, I wanted to help the movement, so I posted on its wall. “Hey, you have a lot of complaints about the establishment,� I wrote – or something to that effect. “But you haven’t presented any


As I expected, a few of the loyal members wrote back to call me names. “I’m just saying, if you want to grow your movement, you’ve got to stop preaching to the choir,� I wrote. “What are the alternatives to big oil and banks? People inevitably turn away from ideas and ideologies that don’t match their own. If you want to change people’s minds, you need to give them something more positive, some action steps.� Occupy Canada blocked me from writing on its wall. It criticizes but can’t handle constructive criticism that incites its members to action. As a result, I predict it’s maxed out its membership at 54,000, (which is hardly 99 per cent of Canada’s population). In short, the Occupy Movement is destined to remain on the fringes – because, frankly, it can’t win “the argument.� Name-calling, complaining and blaming areGRANT ineffective MORGAN’S - $158,000 Build of yourforcing dream home! 100’x150’ Building means change Lot adjacent to Morgan’s Grant.

mantra is “we are the 99 per cent,� stemming from the idea that one per cent of the world’s population controls 99 per cent of the wealth. They advocate things like tax evasion and simultaneously argue for the government to pay for social programs. They use their iPads, smartphones, and wireless infrastructure daily to blame big business and banks and politicians for the state of the world. They get on gas-fuelled buses and protest outside oil companies; they takeover the streets of Montreal in their Nike shoes and burn the place up because they’ve been asked to start contributing an increased percentage of their tuition fees. (Of course, unless they succeed in their goal of tax evasion, they’ll pay for those tuition fees eventually). Occupy Canada and its sibling organizations have Facebook pages and Twitter accounts and all the things needed to take the momentum of the first four months of active protests and keep it going in the virtual world. I like a dissenting voice as much as the next gal, so I signed up, and started to read what was being posted a gazillion times each day. Every article posted by the administrators on Facebook, every subsequent comment posted by the 54,000-or-so members of the Occupy Canada group represents a big whine-fest. They don’t like the government’s policy



he other day, my sixyear-old got caught up in a whirlwind of whining – blaming, complaining and name-calling. It was Saturday. He’d had an unusually late night. We were at our wits end. “You need to stop and apologize for the way you’re speaking to everyone,� I said, as we were trying to get out the door. “You need to say sorry to your brother for calling him a name and ask how you can make it right.� “It’s not my fault I said that,� he said. I felt a tingle of rage go up my back. “It’s not my fault.� We’re trying to teach our kids to take responsibility for things. We’re trying to teach them respect for others. We’re trying to teach them that if you don’t like something, you have the power to change it. But sometimes, as parents, we fail. Perhaps a more realistic way of explaining it – these things take time. I have a sense, however, that an entire generation of parents failed on a larger scale than we did last Saturday morning. Their inability to impart responsibility to their children has culminated in a movement called the Occupy Movement. Although it’s largely believed to have started in Madrid, the Occupy Movement first garnered mainstream attention when it held a protest on Wall Street for months starting in September 2011. From there, the movement garnered momentum, as like groups organized simultaneous protests in major cities across the Western world. The movement’s focus – if you want to call it that – is to protest against social and economic inequality. Their

Ottawa’s west end to get more water service by 2016 Additional pumping station will allow residents to move into new Kanata west and Stittsville subdivisions Laura Mueller

EMC news - The timing of construction for a new water pumping station in Kanata is essential for the area’s future development, said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. A new master plan for water and wastewater servicing in the west end indicates a new Kanata pumping station must be built before 2016. But an already overburdened water system would be under extreme stress by that point, Hubley said during a Nov. 13 planning committee meeting. “To me the timing is critical that that new station be operational before we get anything (else),” Hubley said, referring to new developments in the area. Kathleen Willis expressed the same concern on behalf of Kanata West Owners’ Group. “We’re hoping that’s the absolute worst-case scenario,” she said. She said the construction of the new pumping station is the only thing holding up the new homes from being built in the Kanata west-Stittsville area. It already has draft subdivision approval. “They’re ready to go, they’re working on designing the stormwater system that will service the development, which is no use to them unless they have the capacity in the Kanata west pump station,” Willis said. It would also allow some Fernbank developments to move forward by freeing up capacity in the Fairwinds pumping station, Willis said. Roman Diduch, project manager of infrastructure policy, assured them that 2016 is the deadline for the new pumping station to be built. The project is currently in design and is set to go to tender for construction company bids in late 2013 or early 2014. Occupancy for the new residential areas, particularly a Richcraft development, is expected in 2016, staff told Hubley. There is still some pumping capacity left at the Fairwinds and Hazeldean pumping stations and the new Kanata west pumping station would be completed before the remaining capacity in the other two pumping stations is exceeded. The report doesn’t recommend any additional upgrades for the Hazeldean pumping station, which recently received substantial upgrades. When a new pumping station is built, flows could be shifted between the new pumping station and the existing ones

if there are pumps not working or if there is a higher than normal amount of water. “By diverting sewer flows, additional residual capacity can be created at either the Hazeldean Pump Station or the future Kanata West Pump Station,” the report states. “This would reduce the potential for overflows or sewer backup.”

The water and wastewater servicing plan follows up on the Infrastructure Master Plan approved by council in June 2009, which identified eight major sanitary sewer system projects that are required to accommodate projected growth in the west urban area by 2031. Most of the projects were identified in the 2009 plan – the only difference being the recommended addition

of an “interceptor sewer” between sewers in Fernbank and Stittsville and the planned Kanata west pumping station. That interceptor will result in a more balanced flow with even distribution between the pumping stations. A separate investigation of west-end flooding caused by deficiencies in the Hazeldean pumping station led to upgrades to that pumping station.

Hydro Ottawa Doubles Green Power at Chaudière Falls


Your Community Newspaper 613.623.5903


The Ring Dam at Chaudière Falls controls the flow of water into the generating stations.

Hydro Ottawa has more than doubled its clean, renewable hydroelectric generation at Chaudière Falls with the purchase of three hydroelectric stations and a 38.3 percent interest in the Ring Dam from Domtar. The company already operates three other stations with a capacity of 17 megawatts at Chaudière Falls. In fact, Hydro Ottawa has more than 100 years of experience running hydroelectric plants at the site. One of the existing stations dates back to 1891, and another entered service in 1900. “What many people don’t know is that the first instance of hydroelectric generation in Canada – and one of the first in the entire world – occurred right here in the heart of the nation’s capital,” said Mayor Jim Watson. With this new purchase of three stations from Domtar, Hydro Ottawa’s hydroelectric generating capacity will more than double to 37 megawatts – producing enough clean energy to meet the needs of 28,000 households. Another benefit of the purchase is that the Chaudière Falls site is one of the largest remaining water-power sites available in Ontario, with an expansion opportunity that could see Hydro Ottawa’s hydroelectric capacity grow to 60 megawatts. The acquisition is a key part of a strategic plan to pursue growth opportunities that benefit its customers, the shareholder – the City of Ottawa – and the environment. In addition to hydroelectric stations, Hydro Ottawa is the majority owner of a landfill gasto-energy plant at Trail Road, which was recently expanded. This 6 megawatt plant converts millions of tonnes of previously flared-off methane gas into renewable energy. In 2011, the company began construction of a new 4.2 megawatt landfill gas-to-energy facility at Moose Creek Ontario. The new electricity generating plant is a partnership with Integrated Gas Recovery Services and is expected to be operating in 2013. Hydro Ottawa is Ontario’s largest municipallyowned producer of green power.

A group of women from the Anglican Parish of March held a soup mission for a women’s shelter in Kanata on Oct. 28. Thirteen women – who came from St. John’s Anglican Church (South March), St. John’s Anglican Church (North March) and St. Paul’s Anglican Church (Dunrobin) – gathered at St. John’s and prepared and labeled 186 cups of lentil and squash soups. Later that evening, the group delivered the soups to Chrysalis House, a women’s shelter, where they were placed in a freezer. “We wanted to prepare soup for the women to consume while at the shelter and to take with them as they return to their own independent living spaces,” said the women. The Parish Soup Mission was made possible through a Growing in Faith Together fundraising campaign, run by the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa. The money paid for cooking and soup supplies. The Anglican Parish of March plans to make soup for Chrysalis House four times a year over the next five years. Future events are planned for Sundays on Jan. 27, April 28 and June 23 from 4 to 8 p.m. Anyone interested in joining any of the upcoming soupmaking events can call 613832-1808 or email jfmacnab@ The cost is $10 for each participant, which covers the cost of a meal.

Nothing ever cast aside during Depression years


inter came early that year. It had been cold and damp, and suddenly the snow came. It was going to be “no ordinary winter,” Father said at supper that night. We five children were delighted. That mean snowmen, stamping out big wheels in the yard for a game we played back in the thirties and sleigh rides. Lots of sleigh rides. It also meant snow white fields and the ruts in our long lane would be covered and our fivekilometre walk to Northcote school would be easier. It was also the year our two Montreal cousins, Ronny and Terry, were with us. They came in late summer and never went home. The wagon was changed for the big flat bottomed sleigh, with the one seat in front for Mother and Father, and seven children -- now with the cousins included -- all vying for a spot in the back of the sleigh. The winter had only been with us a few days when a church supper was planned. It would take more than a heavy snow storm to cancel something as exciting as a church supper back then. Father had covered the sleigh with straw and put two bales of hay close to the seat at the front, where we could sit with our backs against them and our feet stretched out before us.


MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Of course there wasn’t enough room for seven of us to sit with our backs against the bales, which suited my brothers just fine. They would much rather be wrestling and trying to throw each other off into a snow drift. So my sister Audrey, young Terry and me got to sit with our backs to the bales. It was a bitterly cold night for early winter and Mother had heated bricks on the Findlay Oval all afternoon. Audrey, Terry and me were snuggled down under a heavy quilt and the hot bricks, wrapped in several layers of the Renfrew Mercury, were at our feet. Soon the heat from the bricks could be felt right through our galoshes. The supper was at the Lutheran Church and Father was heard to lament that it was full of people from the United Church, who had come for a free meal. Mother told him to hush up and reminded him we weren’t above going to whatever was held at the United Church on many an occasion. By the time the supper was over and the social end of the

evening came to a close, it was time to head for home. By this time the bricks were ice cold, but Audrey sat with Terry and me on either side of her, with her arms around us and the blankets right up to our chins. We hardly missed the bricks at all. As always, when we got home, it was my sister’s job to fold up the blankets and take them and the bricks into the shed. “The bricks are gone,” she yelled. They had mysteriously disappeared. “You can be sure one of the Uniteds took them,” Father said. Mother said that was the silliest thing she ever heard of -- stealing bricks. Who would want old bricks when you can get them for a few cents at the brick yard in Renfrew? It was little Terry who, after coming awake, said with a sleepy voice, “I know where they are,” and then quickly nodded off as he was being carried into the house. Mother gently shook him awake. “Alright Terry. Where are the bricks?”

“They are all along the road. They were cold and no good no more so I throwed them away.” We went to church early the next morning. The three brothers walking along the road, looking for and picking

up the five or six bricks half hidden in the snowbanks. Even though they cost next to nothing, even a few cents back in those Depression years were not to be casually thrown away on the side of the road and forgotten. Many a time

would they be used again that winter and other winters to come. My sister Audrey made awfully sure thereafter that young Terry knew how important the bricks were, even when they lost their heat.

Kanata North forms BIA to revitalize business park Derek Dunn

EMC news - Businesses in Kanata north are ready to revitalize the region, now that they’ve formed a business improvement area. Only about 20 representatives of the some 600 businesses in the March RoadTerry Fox Drive area came out to the inaugural annual general meeting on Nov. 20 at The Marshes Golf Club. That is why the first goal is to generate more interest in the new business improvement area, said its newly

elected chairman Kevin Ford. “It’s still early, but we need to engage these businesses,” said Ford, a high tech marketing expert. “As you can see, it’ll take a lot of work.” The president of business and technology services at Calian Technologies Ltd. views the BIA as a voice for employees on local issues, such as transit. His big-picture goal, though, is to attract and retain new talent and companies to the area and to liaise with groups such as Invest Ottawa (formerly OCRI), to “ensure Kanata

north has a proactive voice on business development opportunities,” he said.. “The BIA is an excellent forum to assist with the revitalization of the Kanata north brand.” With the dismantlement of Nortel Networks and the rise of other tech clusters in Canadian cities such as Waterloo, Ont., Kanata’s one-time “Silicon Valley North” brand has been deflating since the

tech bubble burst about 10 years ago. And the effects are palatable. “It’s energy that’s missing,” Ford said. While not ready to go into specific goals until they are hammered out with the board of directors, Ford said the BIA will approach all three levels of government for partnerships. Other board members

elected that night include: • Pleora Technologies president George Chamberlain, a longtime area resident. • The Marshes Golf Club’s Tony Dunn. • Merkburn Holdings’ Peter Dooher, from the construction field. • Kanata Research Park Corporation’s J. Patrick Ferris, a lawyer. • Brookstreet Hotel’s Troy

Hughes. • Papa Sam’s owner Sam Khatib, a longtime small business owner. • The Children’s Place executive director Terry MacIver. • TD Bank Group’s Marc McLaren. • Alcatel-Lucent’s David Ritonja. see CALIAN’S, page 18

As part of the project, the youth were asked to create a public service announcement. “After many discussions, the youth felt that a music video would be more relevant and have a greater impact,” she said. Crnic worked with the teens to develop the lyrics and music. “I was really touched and moved by this,” Crnic said. The song is based on issues of bullying, feeling alone and suicide: “Things that needed to be mentioned in the song to get the message across,” said Crnic. “There’s no fluff to the words.

things look rather than to the way they feel.” That has changed with the arrival of sensual kitchen decor choices such as the latest “must feel” surface to hit the countertop industry -Elements by Durcon.

“Ultra-smooth to the touch and slick, Elements is probably the most seductive, sensual surfaces available for most discerning kitchen lovers out there,” said Mark Hanna, President Leeza Distribution Inc., one of North America’s leading distributors of premium countertops such as Elements by Durcon. Molded from a blend of fine quartz, epoxy resin, and recycled glass, Elements is solid, non-porous, never requires sealing, and is homogenous in consistency. Its unique manufacturing process produces an incredibly durable and silky smooth countertop surface. Renowned for its unique ultra-smooth finish, Elements has definitely become the countertop of choice


(MS) -- According to design experts, the latest hot trend in kitchen decor is the use of different textures, colors and surfaces to create a sensual sanctuary that engages all of our five senses -- sight, hearing, smell, taste, and most of all touch. In her book, “Sensual Home,” Elle Decoration editor Ilse Crawford explains this recent interior design movement as creating private havens with your decor to soothe and enhance each of the senses. “As modern life threatens to become increasingly standardized, suburbanized, unnatural, and uniformly lit, the home is, for many of us, the last bastion of the senses,” she writes. This is why she recommends we tune our homes to involve all of our senses and “restore the balance between mind and body.” In fact, homeowners were already creating these sanctuaries in other rooms of their homes, like the master bedroom and bathroom. Master bedrooms featured sensual silk bedding, cozy comfort duvets, seductive colours and lighting while master bathrooms hosted soothing sensuous spa-like environments created to relax and unwind from the outside world. Up until recently, designers and consumers did not afford these same sensual attributes to their kitchens, Crawford explained. “Over the past 40 years, most of the attention in design has been paid almost exclusively to the way

Police, MADD kick off Festive RIDE season Jessica Cunha

EMC news - It might be known as the Festive RIDE campaign but sometimes it can be anything but cheery. Ontario Provincial Police Insp. Dave Springer said police still see hundreds of impaired drivers over the holidays every year. “It still fascinates police officers,” he said about how people continue to drink and drive. “We know it’s preventable, that’s the biggest thing.

“People still don’t seem to be getting it.” The OPP, along with the Ottawa police, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, military police and Mothers Against Drunk Driving launched the 2012-13 Festive RIDE campaign at midnight on Nov. 24. The operation runs until Jan. 2. “We want everyone to get home safely” this holiday season, said Springer. “One death is one death too many.” According to MADD Ottawa, four Canadians are killed

everyday while another 174 are injured in impairment-related crashes. “It’s a tragedy,” said Springer, adding if someone suspects a driver of being impaired they’re directed to call 911. “We want the public to reach out…call it in.” Gregg Thomson, who works with MADD Ottawa’s victims services and is vicechair of the national organization, lost his son Stanley in 1999 due to a drunk driver. “Lots of folks don’t think they’ll get caught,” he said.

“Zero (blood alcohol content) is the only way to drive.” People who are planning to host a party or attend one, and have a few drinks, should think ahead about how they or their guests will get home, he said. “You can still enjoy yourself,” said Thomson. “Just find another way home. “Do it safely.” Police set up a RIDE check point on the eastbound on-ramp for Highway 417 on Nov. 23, stopping vehicles,


asking drivers if they’d been drinking and letting them know about the campaign. MADD volunteers handed out red ribbons to drivers to thank them for not drinking and driving. Although drivers are more conscious of the risks related to impaired driving, police still see “thousands every year,” said Springer. “Unfortunately, we’re out there 365 days a year because they’re out there 365 days a year.”

Last year during the Festive RIDE campaign, OPP officers charged 682 motorists with impaired driving and issued warnings to 583 drivers who registered between .05 and .08 blood alcohol concentration. The number of charges laid is more than double the 308 handed out to drivers during the 2010-11 campaign, according to the OPP. “Officers are out there, looking for them,” said Springer.

W. Erskine Johnston opens new kindergarten wing Blair Edwards

EMC news - W. Erskine Johnston Public School is celebrating the opening of a new kindergarten wing.

The school addition houses three junior and senior kindergarten classrooms as well as a room for a Grade 5 French immersion class. Each room comes with a bathroom built specifically

for four- and five-year-olds, with low-to-the ground toilets and sinks and special soap dispensers. One hundred students moved into their new classrooms last week.

Ponderosa’s Barn

“In my classroom we had a ribbon-cutting ceremony and balloons,” said Cynthia Jaz, a senior kindergarten teacher. The rooms come with all the standard equipment for kindergarten classrooms, including sand tables, small chairs and tables, puppet theatres, as well as science and reading centres.

Each room is also illuminated with natural light courtesy of tinted picture windows. “We like to call them big beautiful windows,” said Jaz. “The kids enjoy the natural light and the space allows for them to learn and explore to their full potential.” Down the hallway of the kindergarten wing, Jo Anne

Pulley was leading her class in a sing-a-long in their new classroom. “It is wonderful to have so much space for the children,” said Pulley. “It’s so bright. It just feels like a fresh start. “It feels good to be in a classroom just for kindergarten.” The school’s parent council plans to hold an event celebrating the construction of the school addition on Nov. 27, starting at 7 p.m.

EMC news - W. Erskine Johnston Public School will be constructing 16 additional parking spots to make up for lost space due to the addition of its new kindergarten wing. “They’re going to be working there very soon,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. The new parking area will be beside the playground and across from the existing parking lot. A number of trees in the area close to where the lot will be will not be removed, Wilkinson said.

Glen Cairn man hoping for an Everyday Champion Citizen Advocacy aims to match volunteers to people with disabilities nership ended. Now Henry is hoping to find someone else who can offer him support.

Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Glen Cairn’s Peter Henry is just one of more than 300 people on a waiting list for volunteer support through Citizen Advocacy of Ottawa. Henry said he enjoys being active, swimming, curling, going for walks with his black lab Zeus and taking part in Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club activities, but can’t participate as much as he would like because he is visually impaired. Henry has very little light perception and zero vision due to a condition called retinitis pigmentosa, which destroys the retina, as well as glaucoma. “It could be worse,” he said, sitting in the sun room of the retirement residence where he lives, with Zeus curled at his feet. “I’ve still got my legs. I’ve still got my arms. I can still get around.” The problem is he lives on a busy street with no crosswalk or sidewalk, so getting around can be difficult. “There’s no way for me to get across on my own,” said Henry, who sits on the Lions Club board of directors and manages five committees, curls with the Ottawa Blind Curlers at the City View Curling Club and spends time at Saunder’s Farm, which is owned by a relative. Henry had been previously matched with a volunteer, but due to health reasons the part-

Just because you don’t have vision doesn’t mean you can’t do things. PETER HENRY GLEN CAIRN RESIDENT

“Just because you don’t have vision doesn’t mean you can’t do things,” he said, adding he enjoys going to movies and Ottawa Senators games. CHAMPION

Peter is on a waiting list for an Everyday Champions volunteer through Citizen Advocacy; the organization sends volunteers to work one-on-one with people with disabilities. Matches get together once a week for a few hours to share activities they both enjoy. “He’s such a nice man,” said Heather Badenoch, a Nepean resident who works for Citizen Advocacy. “He’s really accomplished in many ways but he can’t get out on his own.” Badenoch has been working to find Henry a volunteer who can help him with running errands, reading his correspondence and getting to and from his various activities. “Volunteers don’t need

previous experience; they’re like advocates, they’re like friends,” said Badenoch, adding people are matched based on interests, proximity and other factors. “He’d like to curl more than once per week and swim laps like he used to, but he can’t do those activities alone. He needs someone with whom to practise the mechanics of the game, (and for) guidance and support – as the ice sometimes could be fast and slippery – for curling and a spotter in the pool,” she said. Henry uses ParaTranspo when needed or OC Transpo, but it can be difficult because there are very few trips through the area where he lives. If he misses a bus, he could be waiting several hours for the next one. With Christmas coming, Henry said it would be nice to be able to do some shopping outside the Kanata area if someone could drive him or accompany him on the bus, as well as attend the annual Citizen Advocacy’s holiday party with him – something he hasn’t been to in 12 years. “I’m very open,” he said about finding a volunteer. “We’d just work it out.” For more information, visit, email or call 613-761-9522.



Peter Henry is one of more than 300 people on a waiting list for volunteer help through Citizen Advocacy of Ottawa. Here with his black lab, Zeus, Henry says he enjoys being active but needs support to go curling, swimming and to run errands.

Film screening and discussion focus on bullying ‘It really speaks to the issue, the complexity of the issue and the impact it has on everyone’: WOCRC Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre will host a screening and panel discussion on a film about bullying on Monday, Dec. 10. The film, titled Bully and directed by Lee Hirsch, will be shown at the Empire Theatres Kanata (formerly the AMC Kanata 24), followed by a panel discussion on the issue of bullying. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley will be master of ceremonies for the event. “It’s part of our strategy to prevent bullying in our community,” said Cathy Jordan, executive director of the resource centre. “We’re certainly aware this is an issue in our community. Jamie Hubley’s death brought that to the forefront last year.” Jamie, the son of the Kanata South councillor, took his own life last year after being bullied for his sexual orientation, which led to a deep depression he couldn’t overcome. Bully is a documentary on peer-to-peer bullying in schools across America. According to the film trailer,

more than five million American kids will be bullied this year “at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their cellphones and on the streets of their towns, making it the most common form of violence young people in this country experience.” Jordan saw a preview of the film last year. “It’s extremely powerful. It really speaks to the issue, the complexity of the issue and the impact it has on everyone,” she said. “Having this film is an opportunity to reach out to people in the community and raise awareness … engage the community to do what we can to end bullying in our community.” Panelists include representatives from the social service, education, judiciary, and mental health sectors, as well as a youth who has experienced bullying. They are: • Angela Lorusso: children’s community developer, Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. • Const. Carrie Archibald: school resource officer, Ottawa police. • Gab: a youth who has been bullied.

• Monica Garvie: vice-principal, Roch Carrier Elementary School. • Dr. Neil Gottheil: clinical psychologist, CHEO, and clinical director, Turning Corners Psychological Services. “We have an amazing panel of people who will be able to speak more to the issue and have a conversation,” said Jordan. The resource centre is running a bullying prevention program within schools in Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton. Last year, the program had 9,525 participants. “It’s an initiative that involves the teachers, the students and the parents to have a better understanding of bullying and how to stop it,” said Jordan. “It’s very much about school culture and promoting the schools to take a stand against bullying.” The film will be screened at 6 p.m., with a reception that begins at 5 p.m. Tickets are free but advance registration is required. A light supper will be provided and assistance with transportation and child care is available. For details and to register, visit or email

Food hamper recipient shares with even less fortunate Caring and Sharing Exchange

EMC news - The number of low-income families asking for help is increasing dramatically and the Caring and Sharing Exchange, home of the Christmas Exchange program, cannot tell whether or not every person on the list will receive a food hamper or a gift-voucher this year. Last year, more than 27,000 individuals in Ottawa turned to the Christmas Exchange program for assistance. Sadly, community dona-

tions didn’t keep up with the increasing need and the funds didn’t stretch far enough to help everyone on the waiting list, leaving 5,000 families out in the cold. Kathryn, who asked to remain anonymous, one of the Christmas Exchange program recipients, shared her food hamper with two friends who were among those unlucky people left on the list. “The Christmas food hamper was lovely and made me cry,” Kathryn wrote in a thank you letter.

“I shared it all with a friend of mine who is a senior and didn’t get one. So your food hamper delighted two families this Christmas. I also gave the cookies and chocolate to another friend with three children, who did not get a Christmas hamper. She cried with joy and hung on to my neck for so long that I thought she might still be around my neck on the Christmas Eve service.” “We were very touched by Kathryn’s generosity, despite her own economic situation,” said Cindy Smith, executive

director of the Caring and Sharing Exchange. On Nov. 15 last year, there were 10,828 people in need of a helping hand, said Smith. Today, the program already has 13,500 names on the list and registrations are not showing signs of slowing down, she added. “It was heart breaking that everyone in need wasn’t helped last Christmas,” said Smith. “This year, we are hoping to help everyone on the list, but we need the community’s support in order to achieve

this.” In order to provide the minimum of help, the Christmas Exchange program needs to raise $500,000. The organization relies on fundraising events, individual and business donations, and several grants, and it receives no funding from the United Way or governments. The co-ordination service cross-references applications made through 300 local resource centers, churches, service clubs, and other agencies in Ottawa. This helps to eliminate

duplicate applications and make every dollar go further. They also process all the applications to the Salvation Army Toy Centre (Toy Mountain). The co-ordination service saved the community more than $2 million over the last three years.

IF YOU WORK IN ONTARIO, THIS IS YOUR FIGHT. On September 11, 2012, the Ontario Liberal government passed Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, 2012.

Bill 115 is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unprecedented. • It takes away the democratic rights of teachers and education professionals to bargain collectively. • It places the government beyond the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and even the courts. • It takes local decision-making away from school boards and puts it in the hands of the provincial government. That’s why we’re standing against Bill 115. It sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians. In fact, the government has already threatened other public sector workers with similar legislation. As teachers, we teach your children to stand up for their principles. Today, we ask you to do the same.

What can you do to help?


Join us in standing up for democratic rights. Let your MPP know that Bill 115 must be repealed.

tour, during which she hopes to speak to everyone from frontline health-care workers to Ontario families about what’s working – and what isn’t – about the way medical services are delivered in this province. With a possible provincial election looming in the new year in light of Premier Dalton McGuinty stepping down, the consultations could take on a new importance, Horwath said. “If the legislature doesn’t come back … and we find ourselves in an election campaign, certainly this conversation can help inform our platform discussion,” Horwath said. But Horwath said she would rather get back to business in the legislature than be immersed in an election campaign. The legislature could resume by the end of January. Ontario NDP MPPs from across the province will be engaged in the consultation process, because the challenges still exist even if the legislature has been shut down, Horwath said. “The health-care system is on people’s minds these days,” Howath said, in light of scandals surrounding eHealth and ORNGE air ambulance. “People worry about whether we’re focusing on their priorities,” she said. The Ontario NDP recently put out a discussion paper entitled “Delivering Access.

He came out with a fractured leg.. many bumps and bruises and a concussion. He has now weekly cast changes for his growing leg and trying to get mobile again. Once he is all healed up he will be looking for a loving family to call his own. If you are so inclined we would gratefully accept donations towards his hospital bills ... our website has a donation page to assist you, please mention the name “Sundance”. Thank you very much.

Ontario’s Challenges: A consultation on healthcare,” which is available online at That guide contains the issues Horwath hopes to hear from Ontarians on. Anyone interested in sharing their thoughts can email The document also contains information on some of the proposals the NDP has already brought to the table, such as putting a cap on the salaries of hospital executives. Horwath said she wanted to visit the Centretown Community Health Centre because her party puts a strong focus on the team health-care model. “CHC’s (community health centres) play a very integral role in providing holistic care,” Horwath said. “We often talk about illness. We need to spend some time focusing on wellness.” When it comes to taking pressure off critical healthcare services such as emergency rooms and long-term care, community health centres play an important role, Horwath said. She’s interested in hearing how the system could work better; her party has already suggested that expanding prenatal care offered through community health centres and adding nurse practitioner-run clinics could be options to explore. Jeff Morrison, president of the Centretown Community Health Centre’s volunteer board, said he’s glad to give any political party advice on how investments in community health centres can have great outcomes. Two recent studies have recommended the expansion of the community health model, in part because the centres combine services for health with social programs that address overall wellbeing, Morrison said. Sixty per cent of health outcomes are related to social determinants and that’s the basis for the resources offered at the centre, he said. Each community is different, so each community health centre reflects that, offering the best service to meet the needs of the people who live there. “The programming is diverse and responds to a community’s needs,” he said.

EMC news - The second-floor computer lab at the Ottawa Jewish Community School looked more like NASA’s ground control last week, as students took part in a countrywide online math competition. Kids from grades 2 to 7 classes joined 17,000 Canadian students involved in the Maple Leaf Math Challenge, a two-day competition where students must master 50 math concepts before competing in speed drills. Due to the nature of the online program, each student is able to monitor their own progress and the ranking of their school in real time, making for a dynamic, exciting learning experience. The event is a popular one at the school, with six students entering the top 100 in Canada last year. “There’s such a focus on math in this school – our kids really look forward to this,” said registrar Sara-Lynne Levine. “You see a lot of camaraderie. The kids root each other on.” Despite the speed and number of participants in the challenge, taking part is an easy task. You simply log on, sign in for your grade, choose your desired level of difficulty and start competing. However, unlike sporting events, students aren’t vying for medals or a cup. A certificate and sense of accomplishment is the reward for good work here. “It’s about the intrinsic satisfaction,” said Beata Myhill, the school’s math coach. “The kids can compete at whatever level they’re comfortable with.” While the students are clearly having fun competing, especially in the speed drills, the knowledge reinforced through this kind of process will be invaluable later in life. The computer program is used throughout the year in a classroom setting to complement the existing curriculum and is even made available to students for learning at home. “Parents can choose to purchase participation in this program,” said Myhill, who is a publisher of the Nelson Math Program –an educational tool adopted by many educational institutions. The benefits of this kind of learning are many, said Levine, with teachers being able to tailor the program’s lessons to a student’s education level and learning style to best instill the knowledge. “A teacher can select the information – make it more difficult or easier – for the child to use,” said Levine. “It’s a great add-on to our math program. The individualization is a benefit to teachers as well. It

allows them to adapt the curriculum to the student’s favoured way of learning.” Participants in the math challenge will have to wait two weeks for official results, though the nature of the computer program produces the unofficial results almost immediately. Regardless of each student’s individual ranking, the experience of participating – the fun, friendship and learning – is a reward in itself.

KANATA FOOD CUPBOARD’S FRESH FOOD REVOLUTION I was pleased to be present at the kickoff of the Kanata Food Cupboard’s Fresh Food Revolution, a new way of providing food to clients. They have set up their premises like a food market so clients can take a cart and pick the type of food their family enjoys. Clients are given a list with the number of each type of food for a family of their size and can choose which items they want from each section of the ‘market’. The Food Cupboard exists to help those who can’t afford nutritious food for themselves and their families. It is a confidential service that provides for both short-term and chronic needs. Thank you to the many volunteers who provide this service to our community. Extra volunteers for the Christmas season are welcome. You can help fill the OC Transpo buses at Kanata Loblaw stores on Saturday, December 8.

Enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, hot chocolate, skating on the Rink of Dreams and roasting marshmallows outside. Inside City Hall meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, have your face painted, create a craft in Santa’s workshop and enjoy live performances.

7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Mlacak Centre Hall C The subject lands are centrally located in the former municipality of Kanata. The lands represent the Kanata Town Centre and are bounded by Highway 417 to the south, Campeau Drive to the north, townhomes to the east and lands owned by the City of Ottawa to the west.

NOBLE LAUREATE TAWAKKOL KARMAN It was marvellous to attend an event at Centrepointe Theatre to bring greetings and hear directly from Tawakkol Karman, a corecipient of the Noble Peace Prize in 2011. A native of Yemen, Ms. Karman spoke about her non-violent activities in Yemen to end the political corruption in the Yemen government. Her activities led to Arab Spring, urging Arab women to become leaders in creating a new system of government which had human rights, freedom and peace at its centre. The Centrepointe event was organized by the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations, which is based in Kanata. The proceedings were in English and Arabic, and the pride and support given to Ms. Karman was a joy to see. I wish her success in ensuring that democratic reforms in Yemen are implemented.

The subject lands are approximately 9.88 hectare and are currently undeveloped. The subject lands are currently zoned Development Reserve (DR). The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to rezone the undeveloped Blocks from DR Zone to Residential Fifth Density SubZone AA (R5AA), Mixed-Use Centre (MC) and Parks and Open Space (O1) in order to accommodate residential and mixed-use development.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A WEEK MAKES! LATEST ON 2 THE PARKWAY Last week the owner of 2 The Parkway notified the City that they would reduce their zoning request to a maximum height of seven storeys, which is the height that City Planners had determined was the maximum permissible under the Official Plan. As a result, the report is being referred back to Planning Staff for revisions to account for this change. The Planning Committee will then deal with the zoning for this site on December 11. With any revision, the planning concepts in the Official Plan, as well as those used in Beaverbrook, must be followed, particularly with respect to density and to building setbacks from both Teron Road and the Parkway. Interested residents are invited to meet on Monday, December 3 at the Beaverbrook Community Centre at 7 p.m. to discuss the revised report, which should be available for review by that time. Please check my website in advance in case there is a change of venue.

$240,000 missing from budget at Salvation Army’s Booth Centre Michelle Nash

EMC news - The Salvation Army Booth Centre executive director has been fired after more than $200,000 was reported missing. For the past eight years, Perry Rowe has held the position of executive director at the centre, but John Murray, spokesman for the centre, confirmed Rowe was fired after a whistleblower came forward stating $240,000 has gone missing from the centre’s operating budget. The whistleblower, Murray said, came forward five weeks ago and an

external group was called in to conduct a forensic audit. “The Salvation Army acted swiftly and the executive director was first placed under a leave of absence,” Murray said. After reviewing the audit’s initial findings, police were contacted and a full investigation was started. Rowe was fired at this point. No charges have been laid yet by police and the allegations have not been proven in a court of law. According to Murray, the organization will be looking at all the finances of the centre for the past eight years. The Booth Centre has an

annual operating budget of $6 million and Murray said the missing money will not affect any operating programs or the start of the holiday season’s kettle campaign. “No programs have been negatively affected and our focus is on moving forward,” he said. Connie Woloschuk, a former executive director of the Booth Centre, was named interim director. “Connie has a great relationship with staff and Ottawa,” he said. As for staff at the centre, Murray said they are shaken, but will focus on the road ahead. The 2012 kettle campaign was launched on Nov. 20 and the Salvation Army Ottawa seeks to raise $700,000 for local programming. Murray said he hopes the community will understand the allegations of fraud do not affect this year’s campaign goals. “We respect every donation received...the alleged fraud that took place is an isolated incident and is not connected to the Christmas kettle campaign,” he said.

Wildlife refuge to host hay-raising event Arts and craft fair on Dec. 8 boasts local vendors Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge is hoping to spread a little holiday cheer and raise some muchneeded funds to buy hay for its rescue animals. The Dunrobin sanctuary, which is home to a number of goats, ponies, alpacas, pigs and other animals, will host an arts and crafts fair at the Dunrobin Community Centre on Dec. 8. “I just really want to be able to provide for all the animals,” said Lynne Rowe, who runs the refuge. “They give so much joy to the people who visit.” Rowe said she’s hoping to raise enough money to allow for a bulk hay purchase, which will cut down on driving costs to pick up small bales. Because of the summer drought, there is no hay available within the area.

“This last week I spent literally about six hours doing two trips to go an hour away (to) load up the pickup truck – which is 20 years old – with hay and come home,” she said, adding if the sanctuary can raise a couple thousand dollars she can purchase a larger quantity and have the bales delivered. Hay is the refuge’s biggest expense, with the farm animals going through about 50 bales a week. CRAFT FAIR

The refuge will be working with the Charity Group, which is made up of local children from the Kanata area. Jasmine Quirk, the founder of the group, will be on hand as “The Great Jasmini” to read the fortunes of attendees. The group’s co-founder, Grace Dixon, will also be on hand at the fundraiser, said Rowe. “The whole group is plan-

ning to have a day where they’re going to make crafts that we can sell. So it’s great to have them pitch in and help us out,” said Rowe. A number of local vendors and artists will be in attendance, selling such items as wooden magic wands, handmade soaps, toys and jewelry, artwork, items for the furry friends on the holiday list and preserves and baked goods. “I love arts and crafts fairs at Christmas,” said Rowe, adding a few of the animals will be in attendance. “You can get something really unique and special for the people in your life.” There are still a few tables left for interested vendors. For information, email info@ or call 613-2224719. The craft fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The community centre is located at 1151 Thomas Dolan Pky. For details, visit

Blazers hungry to help community Kanata Blazers

The Kanata Blazers have a healthy appetite to help their community. The minor midget AA team headed to the Ottawa Mission on Nov. 10 where they prepared hundreds of

sandwiches and helped out with a variety of tasks. A week later, on Nov. 17, they took part in the Kanata Santa Claus Parade, where they helped collected 2,494 kilograms of food, about the same weight of a mid-size car, for the Kanata Food Cup-

board. “I think these events are very enlightening for team, and they come away with a little more appreciation of how very fortunate we are,” said hockey mom Alison Watt, who helped organize the events.

Teachers take to the catwalk Private school raising funds for Smart Board Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Teachers walked the catwalk on Thursday, Nov. 22, to raise funds to bring Smart Board technology to the classrooms of a private school in Beaverbrook. Kanata Academy held its second-annual fundraising fashion show at the school in partnership with Marianne Style, a clothing store based

in Smiths Falls. Last year the school raised $1,400 towards a Smart Board purchase, said principal Shannon Rattray. “I’m hoping for something close to that,” she said of this year’s fundraiser. All the teachers at the school, which teaches students from preschool to Grade 8, are trained in the technology, said Rattray. The boards allow teachers to display material in an interactive format. “They’re all pretty anxious (to get one),” she said. “Having updated technology, interactive technology; it’s more of a hands-on tool.

“A lot of kids learn more by doing.” Teachers modeled outfits by Canadian designer Frank Lyman, from the Smiths Falls shop, which specializes in contemporary, high-fashion. “My whole staff is here making all this happen,” said Rattray. John Wakim, owner of Marianne Style, said it’s a great partnership to help the school purchase a Smart Board. “I thought it would be a neat thing,” he said, of the fashion show concept. “The models are the teachers, and the parents come out and it’s a fun evening.”

Student Showcase puts art on display

“Captain Milo” is a coloured pencil drawing by Chrystia Humeniuk, a student of Katimavik artist Allison Fagan, who will host an open house on Dec. 1 featuring her students’ artwork.

Katimavik artist and teacher hosts open house Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Allison Fagan is putting her students’ work on display. The Katimavik artist and teacher is hosting an open house which will showcase the works of her art students for the first time, on Dec. 1. “It makes it more professional,” said Fagan, who has been teaching artistic techniques for 15 years. “They get to see their work framed and matted.” The Student Showcase will feature works from about 10 of her students in Fagan’s Katimavik home, located at 40 Drainie Dr. The open house will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “It gives them a goal to aim for,” said Fagan of the inaugural event. “There’s that pride for going that extra creative step.” Fagan, who works in coloured pencil, said she chal-

lenges her students to take their own photographs and create original works instead of copying something they’ve seen elsewhere. “Then you become an artist,” she said. “Otherwise you’re a copyist (because) someone else has already composed the photograph.” She said it’s important to push her students to be creative so they can develop their own artistic sense of style. “My students are so important to me; creating art is an emotional journey and we have travelled together, in some cases for years, to get where my students are today. We work, laugh and sometimes even cry together working through projects, which often the students are doing as a special gift for a loved one,” she said. “I push this group out of their comfort zone on a regular basis and now I want to acknowledge and honour

their artistic achievements. I am very proud of their work.” The public will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite artwork and nominate artists for prizes and awards, donated by the Sanford Company. “The awards they provided will be presented to outstanding work, chosen by the public,” said Fagan, a founding member of the Kanata Civic Art Gallery and the Kanata Artists Studio Tour. “This open house at my home studio will allow the public to see what can be accomplished by those who didn’t think themselves capable of even being artistic.” Donations of non-perishable items for the Kanata Food Cupboard will be accepted at the open house. Fagan will be offering new workshops beginning on Jan. 19. For more information, visit or call 613-592-6959.

OC Transpo Presto cards delayed again More cards to be released in January but full rollout pushed to early summer Laura Mueller


EMC news - All OC Transpo riders won’t get access to the Presto smart card payment system until May or June – almost a year after the system was supposed to be in use. The beleaguered system has already faced a sevenmonth delay after technical glitches stalled the planned July 1 launch. Metrolinx, the provincial agency that oversees the smart card system that’s currently used in the Greater Toronto Area, will release an additional 10,000 Presto cards in mid-January. Those cards will start to work on buses on Feb. 1. If everything is working to the city and Metrolinx’s satisfaction, a full rollout could happen by June. The city has negotiated a $3-million discount on its $23.5-million Presto bill to account for the delay. That’s despite insistence from Metrolinx CEO Bruce McCuaig that the system is now “fully functional,” with more than 98 per cent of payment taps working correctly.

The additional delay would help Metrolinx “fine tune” the system to prepare for more users, he said. “The system is fully functional right now and I think the issue really is when is the right time to go to the next level,” McCuaig said. Metrolinx officials indicated in August that they planned to phase-in the cards, but the timeline wasn’t clear. The city was planning to distribute as many as 200,000 Presto cards starting last June. That number is expected the serve the total number of OC Transpo customers anticipated to use the cards in Ottawa. While Presto is used in several cities in southern Ontario including Toronto, Ottawa is the first city to roll out a “new generation” system. Some of the 2,000 people involved in the pilot project had been getting error messages when they tapped their cards on the readers to pay their bus fare in the summer, while others reported that the cards weren’t recognizing when the user topped them up with more value. The implementation timeline is scheduled to be an-

nounced on April 17,l along with a report updating transit commissioners on how the system is working with 12,000 users. Full rollout could happen on May 1 or June 1, 2013. But the city also negotiated a clause that would allow either OC Transpo or Metrolinx to withdraw from the deal before June 1. In that case, Metrolinx would absorb the costs from setting up cards readers and other equipment. It’s unclear if the $9.2 million the provincial government kicked in for the proj-

ect would still be available if Ottawa ditched Presto and found another payment system, but that process could take another three years, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi estimated. An escape clause was missing from the original agreement and it’s something Manconi and OC Transpo staff should be applauded for negotiating now, transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans said. Deans said she wasn’t as involved in the rollout in the

beginning and relied on advice from staff, including former OC Transpo general manager Alain Mercier and Metrolinx officials. “I’ve learned as we’ve gone along that this is much more complex than I certainly knew and (more complex) than we were getting from our staff at the time. “It has become clear to me that trying to issue 200,000 cards on a single day is probably not the best idea,” Deans said. “So why they decided to do it all in one day before, I’m not 100 per cent sure, but I can say with certainty now that this is a better plan.” McCuaig said he wasn’t one of the people at the table when the initial decision for a full, July 1 rollout was made, but he said that plan was based on wanting to make the cards available to as many riders as possible, as quickly as possible. “But I think what we believe is the right moving-for-

ward choice is to be more methodical about it,” he said. McCuaig said Metrolinx learned a lesson from the issues the Ottawa rollout faced. “The lesson that was learned here was to go with a methodical, step-wise approach and that’s the approach we plan to take, that’s the approach OC Transpo agrees is the right path forward, McCuaig said. “When we look at how to deploy Presto in other locations, that’s the approach we’ll be taking.” Commissioners were hesitant to ditch the Presto plan completely because they feel it’s important to have a smart-card payment system in place for the city’s new light-rail transit system that will be built and operational by 2018. About half of the city’s 75 new double-decker buses still need to be outfitted with Presto card readers, but the rest of the transit system is ready to go.

Professional basketball coming to Ottawa in 2013 Blair Edwards


EMC sports - A deal bringing professional basketball to Ottawa is a slam dunk for the city, said the owner of the National Basketball League of Canada’s newest team. Gus Takkale, a 38-year-old Orléans business man and motivational speaker, announced that fans will be able to attend their first game at Scotiabank Place in Kanata sometime in September or October of 2013. “This is electrifying, driveto-the-net, in your face, slamdunk ball,” said Takkale during a press conference today, Nov. 21, at Scotiabank Place, the home court of the yet-to-

“We are ecstatic to be able to bring our brand of ball to Ottawa,” said Ian McCarthy, the founder of the eight-team league, which currently has clubs in Halifax, N.S.; Saint John and Moncton, N.B.; Summerside, P.E.I.; Montreal; as well as Oshawa, London and Windsor, Ont. Mayor Jim Watson welcomed the new basketball franchise to the city. “A professional basketball team is a great way to build civic pride,” said Watson. “I’m confident that Ottawans have a passion for basketball.”

be named team. Takkale is inviting fans to submit suggestions for the team’s name. The franchise will announce the team’s name by the end of 2012 and unveil the team’s logo and main sponsorship by the end of February 2013. It will hire a coach in the spring and start picking up free agents and draft players in the summer. The team will have a 12man roster and a salary cap of $150,000. Ticket prices haven’t been set yet, but should range between $20 to $95 for upperlevel to courtside seats, said Takkale, who hopes to attract between 3,500 and 8,000 fans to each home game.

Wheelchair Hockey League expands Eddie Rwema


Gators forward Mathieu Gagnon drives the ball during the opening game of the Ottawa Power Wheelchair Hockey League between his team and the Sharks at Carleton University’s Norm Fenn Gymnasium on Nov. 25.

EMC sports - The Ottawa Power Wheelchair Hockey League celebrated its expansion to two teams during a game last week at Carleton University. The Sharks defeated the Gators 4-2 at Norm Fenn Gymnasium on Sunday, Nov. 25. The hockey league was established by Carleton University students in 2009, for players who use wheelchairs and have limited upper body strength or mobility. “This event showcases the fact that people with disabilities can get out and join a team and ... play the sport that they love,” said Donna Haycock, chairwoman of the hockey league. “It doesn’t matter the severity of your illness or disability you can still play hockey.” The league consists of two teams, the Gators and the Sharks. Any person who uses a power wheelchair can play in the league, no matter their age, gender, physical limitations or skill level. “It is very inspirational and amazing to work with this group of individuals,” said Haycock.

DINO GIANNETTI “A lot of them would never have thought of ever playing hockey and they are playing hockey now.” A graduate from Carleton with a bachelors degree in commerce, Dino Giannetti, who grew up in Kanata, said joining the league gave him the opportunity to play a sport with a disability and to learn the dynamics of being part of a sports team. “We try to make it accommodating to everyone. For myself I can’t use my hands, I

attach the stick to my chair and that makes it possible for me to play,” said Giannetti. He said playing once a week is one of the main ingredients that allows him to maintain a positive attitude. “We are enjoying it. You can’t be successful if nobody is having fun,” he said. The league provides those who require an electric wheelchair for mobility an opportunity to participate in a recreational environment that exemplifies the value of working together towards a common goal, and aims to boost its players’ self-esteem and desire for competition. The league has already had competitive success. In 2010, it competed in its first tournament — the North American Power Hockey Championship in Toronto — and in 2011, the Ottawa Capitals won a bronze medal at the Canadian Power Hockey Championships in London, Ont.

The main branch of the Ottawa Public Library – along with the rest of the city’s public libraries – will no longer be supported by the Ottawa Public Library Foundation.


Library foundation to dissolve Emma Jackson

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library’s main fundraiser has announced its intention to dissolve. The Ottawa Public Library Foundation was incorporated as a charitable institution in 2002 to enhance programming and services at the city’s library branches. It gave the library board notice on Monday, Nov. 19 that it will dissolve, although it did not say when or why. Since 2005, the foundation has raised about $500,000 for the library. The money has been used to improve or enhance programs like the library’s early literacy centres and the annual Small Business Week program that offers resources for entrepreneurs in the city. A library staffer, who declined to be named, said the funding enhances programs “from B-level service to Alevel service.” She said the foundation’s closure would have no impact on programming, because the library board would “find ways to continue to provide

the services customers are accustomed to.” At the library board meeting on Nov. 19, the library’s chief executive Danielle McDonald was directed to work with the foundation to ensure a “seamless transition process.” The staffer said it is still unclear what the library might do to make up the funding shortfall, as those decisions have not yet been made. Foundation chairman Hunter McGill could not be reached for comment, but a statement on the foundation’s website called for continued support. “The foundation board of directors will meet shortly to decide on the organization’s future, and how to preserve the funds entrusted to us for the Ottawa Public Library’s resources, programs and services,” McGill wrote. “In the meantime, any donations to the foundation will be gratefully accepted, acknowledged and receipted. They will be used to support the priorities already identified jointly by the library and the foundation.” Barrhaven Coun. Jan Hard-

er, chairwoman of the library board, could not be reached for comment by this paper’s deadline.

WC residents will pay less than proposed tax hike Blair Edwards

take place between the councillor, Hughes and the audience throughout the presentation. Hughes delivered a presentation on the draft 2013 budget, which is scheduled to go to council for a final vote on Nov. 28. The suggested 1.98 per cent rural tax increase is the lowest in six years and translates to a $50 hike on the average rural homeowner’s tax bill. The proposed tax increase does not consider this year’s MPAC reassessment of property values across the province.

EMC news - Most West Carleton residents will avoid a full municipal tax increase next year thanks to property value assessments that came in lower than the city average, said Ken Hughes, deputy city treasurer. The city is looking to increase taxes in 2013 by 1.98 per cent in rural Ottawa, but most taxpayers in West Carleton-March will actually end up paying less after adjustments are made following changes in comparative property tax assessments over the past four years. The value of properties in West Carleton-March went up an average of 18.74 per cent, but the average increase citywide is 26 per cent. Property owners who have an increase in assessment over four years of less than 26 per cent will see their municipal taxes change by less than any tax hike and some may even see their taxes go down in 2013, said Hughes. Kitchissippi ward saw the biggest hike in assessments, with the average value of a home rising 34.48 per cent over the past four years, according to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. West Carleton-March sits at the other end of the scale with an 18.74 per cent aver-

ELI EL-CHANTIRY age increase. “There are people here who are paying the same taxes or less than before amalgamation,” said Hughes, during a budget consultation meeting held at the West Carleton Community Centre on Wednesday, Nov. 21. “Don’t be telling your friends in Hintonburg.”

There are people here who are paying the same taxes or less than before amalgamation



The West Carleton budget consultation, hosted by Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, continued the citywide trend of attracting a low turnout. “It seems everybody’s happy with the budget,” said El-Chantiry at the start of the meeting. Only five members of the public showed up for the meeting, which allowed for an informal conversation to

The city will deliver a tax policy report in April, which will adjust how much residents will pay next year. The draft budget also calls for a transit fee increase of 2.5 per cent and $3.5-million in savings through staff reductions. The city has reduced the

number of its consultants by half and frozen recreation fees. The budget calls for: • $975,000 to fight the emerald ash borer problem. • $1 million for an arts, heritage and culture plan. • $500,000 for an older adult program. • $300,000 on community development plans, • $1 million on forestry initiatives. • $4.5 million on renewal of assets. ROADS

The city is spending $340 million over the next three years on infrastructure – on top of its base infrastructure budget – through its Ottawa on the Move program. The money will pay for road and other infrastructure repair that has been on the city’s books for several years. Some of the road resurfacing projects in West Carleton-March included in the 2013 budget are: • Kilmaurs Side Road between Woodkilton and Dunrobin roads. • Loggers Way between Mississippi Drive and the road’s dead end. • Thomas Dolan Parkway between Diamondview and Carp roads. • Galetta Side Road between Hwy. 417 and Ferry

Road. • Carp Road between Hwy. 417 and Rivington Street. • Panmure Road between Upper Dwyer Hill Road and the southwest ramp of Hwy. 417. “Ottawa on the Move is making it a bit easier on us,” said El-Chantiry. “So far since amalgamation West Carleton has seen $47 million in roads, ditching and gravelling.” The ward has done well since was made a part of Ottawa in 2001, said the councillor. “We don’t contribute to the city the same amount the city spends on us.” The city is waiting for the federal government’s next round of federal stimulus funding, said El-Chantiry. Councillors are already drawing up a list of shovelready projects for a possible funding announcement next year. El-Chantiry said his list includes expansions to community centres in Corkery and Constance Bay as well as several parking lot resurfacing projects.


Habitat volunteers honoured EMC news - At the Habitat for Humanity Canada National Conference in Toronto last week, three Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region volunteers – Cynthia Herman, Roger Short and Johannes Ziebarth – recognized with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for their exceptional contributions in furthering Habitat’s mission to build affordable housing and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. “These people have made Habitat NCR what it is today,” said Donna Hicks, CEO of Habitat for Humanity NCR. “We all rely on the efforts of people like this who selflessly put others before themselves to make Habitat for Humanity and our community a better place.” Johannes Ziebarth, a Nepean-area resident who is the president of Habitat NCR’s board of directors, serves as the CEO for Paul Ziebarth Electrical Contractors Ltd. Ziebarth, who has been involved with Habitat NCR since its inception in 1993, started out by personally wiring every Habitat home in the National Capital Region. As his company grew, he regularly committed as many as 28 electricians, who routinely volunteer their time to wire an entire house while supplying the electrical materials needed. Ziebarth’s solid understanding of the building industry and his extensive leadership experience make him an invaluable champion and resource for our organization.

Sports dome shift to university campus halted Recreational teams turfed Laura Mueller

EMC news - Thousands of Ottawa athletes will be left with no place to play this winter after the owner of a sports dome and the city failed to reach a deal. Coliseum Inc. owner Marty Lauter said he spent several “anxious” months waiting for a contract from the city to move his sports dome from Lansdowne Park to a new sports field at the University of Ottawa’s 200 Lees Ave. campus before being presented with a “take it or leave it deal” that left him no choice but to walk away. “It strayed quite a bit from what we originally discussed,” said Lauter, who refused to discuss details of the contract. “I asked the city how we could work it out and I was told: ‘This is the agreement.’ “We asked for dialog and they wouldn’t give us any. They sent us a note (saying) ‘take it or leave it.’” But a memo from the city’s top lawyer says the city has not formally terminated negotiations, and that the city has tried unsuccessfully to reach Coliseum Inc.’s lawyers and continue to try and

discuss the situation. “The city has not heard directly from Coliseum Inc. on the Nov. 13 agreement and is surprised about the message on Coliseum’s website - claiming that negotiations have been terminated,” the memo from city clerk and solicitor Rick O’Connor reads. The contract was sent to Coliseum on Nov. 13 with the stipulation that it had to be signed by Nov. 21. Whether he accepted the deal or not, Lauter said the result would be the same – he’d go out of business. He has run Coliseum Inc. for 18 years, including the dome for the past 12 years, and the space is constantly pre-booked to capacity by groups like the Ottawa Sport and Social Club, Lauter said. More than 300 soccer teams usually use the dome in the winter, he said. Their money is being refunded, Lauter said. “We have a lot of disappointed people,” he said. “I don’t have a job. I lose my business … I have a business that’s been in business for 18 years. We’re at capacity, prebooked, and we’ve just been shut down.” Part of the contractual con-


In January, Old Ottawa East residents Ron Rose and Heather Jarrett examine graphics showing how plans to move the Lansdowne sports dome to the University of Ottawa’s Lees campus could squeeze out plans for a riverside pathway. cern was a lack of recognition or compensation for the costs Coliseum incurred from two failed attempts to install the dome at 200 Lees Ave. Lauter said the University of Ottawa told him when the site would be ready for installation, but when he got there, his crew determined it wasn’t ready. That happened twice and it cost him a good chunk of

change, Lauter said. The University of Ottawa refuted that.

“The field at Lees was ready for installation,” said Patrick Charette, director of

corporate communications for the university. “That’s our position. “There were some minor issues brought up to our attention, but we never felt that was a major obstacle for a field installation. The field was ready.” He said the university is also disappointed because it was planning to run new winter programs in the space, such as indoor soccer and touch football. “That’s not going to happen,” he said, adding the university will be working with the city to make other arrangements for next winter to ensure the programs can happen. The university’s athletics department will be re-organizing intramurals and team practices to attempt to find alternative space for all groups that were supposed to use the dome, Charette said. A new location for the dome had to be found due to the Lansdowne redevelopment. Council approved moving the dome last December.

Ottawa condo bubble not ready to burst Condo construction will stabilize, but demand remains high Laura Mueller

EMC news - With towers popping up across the city, is the condominium bubble about to burst in Ottawa ? The answer at a recent real estate conference was “no.” At the Hampton Inn in Overbrook on Nov. 8, a couple of hundred local real estate professionals responded with confused murmurs when a senior Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation market analyst asked if there are too many condos being built in the city. “The answer is no,” continued Abdul Kargbo of the CMHC. While the supply of condo units for sale has been rising since 2001, the percentage of unsold units has remained flat, Kargbo said, indicating that so far, demand is keeping up with condo construction. Despite heated neighbourhood battles over new condo proposals, the number of buildings under construction is actually going down – and that’s a good thing for the

market, Kargbo said. Recently, 2010 was a bumper year for condo construction, with 1,397 units completed. That declined slightly to 1,324 in 2011, and with 948 units completed as of September this year, the numbers are on track for the downward trend to continue. “The growth rate is not going to be as brisk as we’ve seen in the last few years,” Kargbo said, particularly when it comes to prices. It’s overwhelmingly the 25 to 34 age group that’s driving the demand for condos, he said, because condos or townhomes are the only type of housing many of them can afford as first-time homebuyers. Newcomers to Ottawa usually number around 6,000 a year, and they also drive demand, said Sandra Pérez Torres, another senior market analyst. Migration to the city is expected to peak in 2013, with around 9,000 people expected to move here, she said. Ottawa’s economy will remain relatively strong, despite layoffs in the city’s



largest employment sector: the federal public service. “However, uncertainty will keep some potential homebuyers on the sidelines in 2013,” Pérez Torres said. In the past couple of years, condo sales comprised 22 per cent of the city’s real estate market. That will go up slightly to the 2010 level of 24 per cent next year, Kargbo predicted. Still, many new condo units are expensive, so firsttime homebuyers have been looking towards condo resales when they’re buying their first property. That demand for lowerpriced condos will drive a shift towards fewer high-end buildings and more reasonably priced units, especially downtown and in the west and southeast ends of the city, Kargbo said. Townhomes are becoming increasingly popular in the east as younger people looking to buy property search for something in their price range. They likely won’t find it in Barrhaven, Kargbo said, because the area’s popularity with families seeking


Sandra Pérez Torres, a senior market analyst with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, addresses a crowd of real estate professionals gathered at the Hampton Inn for a Nov. 8 conference entitled How Does Ottawa Measure Up? their first home has driven up prices. Kanata, Stittsville and Orléans will also have a slower recovery, as inflated prices stifle demand there. Construction of multi-unit housing such as rowhouses and condos will see a boost in Nepean and Gloucester, Kargbo predicted. The rental market will

continue to remain tight as investors express little interest in building or buying rental buildings and units. Prices and demand have been high since 2008 and with only 400 new rental units completed in the past year, rents will remain high, Pérez Torres said. “That brought a bit of fresh

air to the market, but it’s still quite tight,” she said. As the population continues to age, housing for seniors will be another growing real estate market, Pérez Torres said. That type of housing already grew by 80 per cent in Ottawa in the past two years and is set to continue that trend.

The Tabitha Foundation is a benevolent trust, founded in 1994 to support aid efforts begun and organized by Janne Ritskes. Our field activities are centered in Cambodia, whose people were decimated by a regime which promoted enforced starvation, mass executions, slave labour and wholesale dislocation to such a degree that the social, moral and economic fibre of the country was left in tatters. The integrated development initiatives include work in health care, education, sanitation (water, sewage), housing, small business and co-operatives. These efforts enable the poorest of the poor to improve their health status, rebuild shanties into homes, have their own toilets, clean water, and drainage systems, reconstruct roads, develop their own small businesses or become workers in cottage industry programs and learn to work together as a community. The people of Cambodia have endured severe poverty for the past 30 years— since the Pol Pot era. In that era everything was destroyed: family, social structure, infrastructure, spirituality. The resulting trauma of that period has left the people with a feeling of hopelessness and futility. Cambodians believe they are to blame for their situation—that somehow they deserve their lot. Tabitha-Cambodia works with the poorest members of the community, encouraging them to save and work their way out of poverty. Many poor Cambodian families have no house and virtually no possessions. Despite this, most generate a meager weekly income. Tabitha helps these families to develop a vision of a better life and encourages them to join the Savings Program. Tabitha’s Savings Program recognizes the inherent desire of people to take control of their own lives, allowing them to decide on their own needs and assisting them in achieving their goals. Joining the savings program is a giant step towards rebuilding trust; Tabitha recognizes and rewards that trust in the form of payment of 10 percent interest on their savings. Tabitha places no stress or risk on a family by accepting any amount, no matter how small, allowing even the poorest to participate in the program. Please visit the Tabitha Bazaar on Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st at Wool-Tyme, 190 Colonnade Road South, Ottawa, Ontario.

Aries, avoid taking on more than you can handle at work and home this week. When tackling tasks, don’t be afraid to ask for and accept help. Family and romantic endeavors may have been put aside while work issues have been at the forefront, Taurus. It is time to shift priorities. Gemini, there’s not much you can do to change the course of this week’s events. You might want to consider swimming with the current instead of against it. Cancer, overanalyzing your workload is not going to make it disappear any faster. Therefore, simply take your assignments at face value and just get started. New experiences can be scary at first, but many times you will find that they are opportunities to learn and grow, Leo. Take full advantage of all opportunities this week. Virgo, although it seems like you have most of your financial woes worked out, now is not the time to get too cocky with spending. Being conservative is the way to go.

CLUES DOWN 1. Common detergent measure 2. Island in Venice 3. Establish by law or with authority 4. Exuding a strong odor 5. Walked leisurely 6. A unit of length equal to 1760 yards 8.

Scorpio, success may not come easy with a project you’re working on. But rest easy and take solace knowing you have tried things outside of your comfort zone. Sagittarius, avoid confrontations at all costs, as this week you will not come out victorious. Keep a low profile and don’t ruffle any feathers. Capricorn, if you think about things too long, there’s a good chance you won’t act at all. Instead, consider your options quickly and then get going on your plans. Quality time spent at home or with the family has buoyed your spirits, Aquarius. The next step on your relaxation journey is to book a vacation to a warm area of the world. Don’t underestimate your ability to garner quite a following, Pisces. There are many people just waiting to hear what you have to say next.
