The Ottawa RedBlacks newly named mascot, Big Joe Mufferaw, greets excited children at Kanata’s French public school in Morgan’s Grant on March 28. The mascot was renamed Big Joe in English and Grand Jos in French on March 31 after some felt offended by the anglicized verison. See the full story on page 11.

News- She bought the ticket on a whim. It was Friday, March 28, the end of another work week, and Tina Ferrone was shopping for groceries during her lunch

break at Your Independent Grocer in Billings Bridge Plaza. The 42-year-old Kanata woman had never purchased a lottery ticket before in her life, but the lottery’s grand prize seemed too good pass up, she said. “(My husband and I) saw the commer-

cial, it was like $48 million,” said Ferrone. “I thought, ‘I have to pick up a few groceries, I might as well pick up a ticket.’” The next morning, Ferrone was drying her hair and listening to the radio, when she heard that the weekly draw’s grand prize winner was won by someone in Ottawa.

‘I said get your butt over there because I won a lot of money’ Continued from page 1

She walked her golden retriever and at around 3 p.m. headed down to the Shoppers Drug Mart at the Signature Centre in Kanata Lakes. She needed to pick up a few items anyways. Might as well check the ticket, she thought. When she checked her numbers at the lotto self-check kiosk, the machine printed out the numbers four, eight and a whole lot of zeros, too many to count. “I thought it said $48,000,” said Ferrone. “It was a lot of zeros and said ‘big winner’ in big bold letters.” So she checked her ticket again. And then again. Finally, she decided to check her ticket with a front counter clerk at Shoppers. There was a large lineup, and she didn’t want to draw attention to herself, so Ferrone waited until everyone left and then handed her ticket to the cashier. “I think I just won a lot of money, so can we be discreet?” she asked. When the cashier scanned the ticket, big noises suddenly erupted from the machine, along with a message asking the woman to remain at the counter as an Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission representative would soon con-

tact her at the store. Ferrone asked to use the store phone and called her husband of four years, Liam McGee. “I told my husband to get his butt over there because I won a lot of money,” said Lisa. When McGee arrived, Ferrone was crying and shaking – the Shoppers Drug Mart employees had brought her a bottle of water and a chair to sit on. “I didn’t know what to expect,” said McGee. “I knew something big was going on. It was shocking. It was amazing.” After her husband arrived, the store phone rang, and after verifying her ticket number and identity, the representative told her she was the grand prize winner of $48 million. “I had to give my phone to my husband to talk to the OLG rep, because I couldn’t breathe or function,” said Ferrone. Ferrone said the money comes at a good time in the life of the couple, who have three children. “Liam has been off work for two years while battling cancer,” she said in a press release. “He’s in remission now and we’re excited for the good times to begin.” On Tuesday, April 1, Ferrone and McGee accepted a

Flipping Fiddler bringing Don Messer’s Jubilee to Kanata Late ’50s show second only to Hockey Night in Canada Adam Kveton


The Flipping Fiddler Scott Woods is performing a tribute show to Don Messer’s Jubilee on April 12 in Kanata.

Community - A Canadian music variety show whose popularity rivaled Hockey Night in Canada is getting another lease on life with Flipping Fiddler Scott Woods’ tribute performance, coming to Kanata. Don Messer’s Jubilee was a folk music variety television show featuring violinist Don Messer and His Islanders, along with musical guests in the lates ’50s and throughout the ’60s. The show grew to be the most popular show in the country in the mid-sixties, if you don’t count Hockey Night in Canada. Though the show is little known outside of Canada, it still enjoys a strong follow-

ing, said champion violinist Scott Woods, a.k.a. the Flipping Fiddler. “They go crazy,” said Woods of the audience at his

tribute show. “(Don Messer’s Jubilee) is such a huge phenomenon in Canadian history.” So much so that this is the second Don Messer tribute show Woods has done. “I was actually involved with a bigger show that was honouring Don Messer and His Islanders back in 1998

until 2005, called Memories of Don Messer’s Jubilee,” said Woods. Ever since then, Woods has had calls to renew the Don Messer tribute show. “So this year is a much anticipated show.” See BRINGING, page 6

Mayor’s Report The Order Of OTTawa By Jim Watson

In 2012 I launched the Order of Ottawa to celebrate the extraordinary work and commitment of up to 15 distinguished Ottawa residents each year who help to make our city a better place in which to live. This prestigious civic award recognizes exceptional citizen contributions in the many areas of city life including arts and culture, business, philanthropy, health care, education, public service, labour, communications and media, science, sports, entertainment or other fields of endeavour that benefit the citizens of Ottawa. I believe that it is important that we take the time to recognize those who do outstanding work in our City. By showing them that their dedication and hard work in being noticed, they are emboldened to continue to push harder and reach greater heights. The group chosen each year are role models to those inside and outside their chosen field and inspire others to work to make Ottawa a better place in which to live. The great thing about the Order of Ottawa is that it shows how highly-achieving Ottawa’s residents are across a wide range of endeavours. From Pinchas Zuckerman of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, to Moe Atallah of the Newport Restaurant, to Diane Morrison of the Ottawa Mission, and many more, we have people achieving great heights in every field and the Order of Ottawa lets us recognize these people for it. In 2012, together with 2013, we inducted 30 extraordinary people into the Order and registration is now for 2014. I encourage you to put forward a nomination for somebody who you think would be deserving inductee. Nominations are reviewed by a selection panel after September 12 when the nomination process closes.* For more information on the Order of Ottawa please see the flyers available at your local library branch, community centre, or any Client Service Centre. Or you can find out more online at *Nominations by immediate family members, self-nominations, and posthumous nominations will not be accepted. Municipal, provincial and federal officials are not eligible to be considered for this award while they are in office. R0012621704-0403

Bringing back stories of Don Messer Continued from page 5

While the six-member cast does not impersonate the Don Messer band members, they follow the framework of the show, starting with the show’s opening theme, Goin’ to the Barn Dance Tonight, singers Lynda Lewis and Tommy Leadbeater as Marg and Charlie, the Buchta Dancers, and even the show’s host, Don Germaine introducing the show via recording. “It’s almost like you are right there,” said Woods. The travelling tribute show is only a few performances into its tour, but Woods said he is already happy with the response it’s received. Because of the show’s age, the audience is primarily seniors, though a young-

er crowd does attend, said Woods who was born after the show was cancelled. As a fiddler, Woods has been aware of the show

You can see that the memories are flooding back to them and some of it is very emotional. Scott Woods

most of his life, but only through the music that outlasted the show, and not the show itself. But being able to bring back the golden days of fiddle music is thrilling and an honour, he said.

“You can see the reaction in the audience when I play some of the old music that they don’t hear anymore,” he said. “You see them nudge each other and say, ‘Listen to that, I haven’t heard that in years. I remember Grandma used to take off her apron and do a step dance in the kitchen.’ You can see that the memories are flooding back to them and some of it is very emotional.” Stories of the Don Messer show have been flooding out, said Woods: “‘Oh we ate next to Don Messer, he came through our town and played a concert here. Charlie came to our house after the concert and I baked him an apple pie.’ I mean (audience members) have all kinds of

personal connections.” Still, the tribute show has an appeal to the younger generation, with Woods bringing audience members into the fold during the show, explaining the various elements of Don Messer’s Jubilee, and adding some of his own trick fiddle playing. “I play under my leg and behind my back and I walk on a barrel as I play, and then I do a front running somersault,” all while continuing to play, said Woods. The show will come to Glen Cairn United Church at 140 Abbeyhill Dr. on April 12. Show time is 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for kids age six to 12, and free for kids five and under.

who have contributed in some way to the community through volunteer work. Nominations can be made until April 4. At the award ceremony all nominees will be recognized with certificates, while winners will be given personalized trophies. Expected attendees include Mayor Jim Watson and Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “There are so many people

who contribute to the community that deserve to be recognized,” said Wilkinson. Residing in Kanata is not a requirement for nomination. Working in the area, going to school in the community or just volunteering in the area are also acceptable. The four categories for nominees are youth (19 and under) of the year, adult of the year, senior (65 and over) of the year, as well as organization or non-profit business of the year. “We’d have hardly any activities in our community without volunteers,” said Wilkinson. A group of judges consisting of last year’s winners and one other person will vote on the winners, a vote the councilor is not involved with. “The Kanata Theatre for example is entirely volunteer-run. It doesn’t cost the city a cent to run and they do such a good job,” said Wilkinson, referencing deserving nominees.

Avoiding the red tape


mong the things a city should try to avoid is discouraging business growth. Businesses pay taxes and businesses employ residents, who in turn pay taxes. Along with development fees, taxes are the primary way cities collect money to pay for roads, arenas, transit and the like, so actively discouraging the growth of business in a city is like the shooting of one’s own foot. Last week, a couple of issues that have the potential to affect how business is done in Ottawa came before city council, and in both cases prudent decisions were made. Members of city council voted to reduce the fee paid by restaurant and bar owners to establish sidewalk patios and decided to wait and have further study conducted on the way digital signs are used at businesses across the city. The patio decision, while only affecting the 2014 season, will see the fee paid by businesses wishing to establish a patio that encroaches on city sidewalks reduced by 10 per cent to $1.23 per square metre. In light of what business owners pay in other cities for the same privilege – only as much as $0.57 per square metre in Toronto, for example – it appears reasonable that this could

be done to see how business owners react. The city intends to study the results ahead of the 2015 season and judge the effect. The decision to look further at digital signs, which are displayed inside an exterior window for advertising purposes, is also prudent. The city currently has little in the way of data on how widespread these relatively inexpensive devices are or how they might affect those living nearby, making further study a reasonable course of action. These two issues are good examples of how the city can make life difficult for business, or not, as the case now. In good weather, patios draw restaurant goers to these vital small businesses. Making it easier for owners to leverage the draw of patios keeps them in business, keeps tax dollars flowing to the city and keeps workers employed. While it’s debatable how effective indoor digital signs are for businesses that choose to use them, they’re marginally distracting and spending too much time and effort figuring out how to referee them smacks of wasteful over-management on the part of the city. If digital signs need oversight, why not posters? Why not mannequins? It could easily become a slippery slope ending in a pit of red tape.


Mayoral race needs a little bit of spark


he reconstituted Frank magazine has produced a re-election poster for Jim Watson. Under the headline “Watsonmania,” the satirical rag shows a photograph of a sleepy looking mayor saying: “Let me finish the job ... I still see a couple of people awake in the back!” That would be a common criticism: a boring mayor for a boring city. There is an upside as well, expressed in a number of different ways by a number of different people, but all meaning essentially the same thing: “At least he isn’t Rob Ford.” This is because in politics, boring means no scandals, no gaffes, no feuds with council members, no blowups with the media, no controversy, no embarrassment to the city. Jim Watson has that going for him and it’s no small accomplishment, actually. Many are the politicians who thought they were being cautious and responsible and wound up with a reputation for anything but. Something can always trip you up – a careless word you thought was off-the-record, a rogue staffer, an expense account that wasn’t properly scrutinized, a relative who wasn’t properly scrutinized, an unguarded moment in range of somebody’s iPhone camera. It is not easy to be boring, in other words.

West Carleton Review

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Boring can also mean competent, not prone to exaggerations and pratfalls, and Watson fits in there, too. “Ottawa needs stable leadership for the challenges that remain,” he said in announcing his re-election bid. “Stable leadership” is hardly clarion call, but he knows what he is doing. It is an interesting comment on our times that Watson is considered likely to be reelected simply for not being trouble-prone, just for not being Rob Ford. Little is expected of politicians these days.

Big things are not going to get done under that kind of leadership and many of us seem quite content with that. Because big things sometimes lead to big trouble – as witness, say, Montreal’s Olympic venture in the 1970s. It would be interesting to see a challenge to Watson by a politician with big things on his or her mind. Great cities become great by taking risks, by thinking big. To take one example, Ottawa could have a great waterfront, like many North American cities, if someone thought big and didn’t hide behind the NCC. To take a less thrilling example, Ottawa will need huge expenditures on infrastructure to keep our roads and bridges and water systems from outliving their usefulness. Someone has to push that. We know from experience that it is politically expedient to postpone such expenditures. We know from experience – think of Montreal again – that postponement can lead to tragedy. So it would be good to hear a big idea from Jim Watson, or from one of his competitors, if only to have a more interesting discussion than we usually have around election time. Watson takes some of the credit for Lansdowne Park redevelopment and light rail, which some might call big ideas. But

Lansdowne Park is looking less and less innovative and light rail is just half of a big idea; it doesn’t come close to meeting the city’s urgent transit needs. Creating a proper transit system would be a big idea that would really help make Ottawa a great city. But it would cost money and probably necessitate making rules that make life more complicated and/or expensive for drivers. Other cities have taken on that challenge, but it is politically risky to be sure. There must be dozens of big ideas out there than would make this a better city. It would be nice to hear some of them.

The food guide is all we’ve got as a high-level, broad-reaching document to guide us in our eating habits determine calories by Health Canada are based on old data and no longer reflect the reality. A slice of bread, for example, is considered to be a portion of grains within the food guide, and to represent 65 calories. Most commercial loaves these days contain nearly double that, says Freedhoff, about 120 calories per slice. He also notes that sugary cereals count as a grain serving, which is wrong on a number of levels. And even as countries like Brazil are feted for novel new national guidelines around healthy eating that encourage consumption of fresh and local produce, Canada is

And unlike Brazil’s new food policy, which recommends limiting fats, salt and sugar, and reducing the consumption of packaged foods, Canada’s food guide doesn’t account for the condiments, processed goods and junk foods that most of us include in our diets. Some of you may be thinking all this is overblown. Why attack the food guide? The reality, however, is that we have a growing obesity and overweight problem in the Western world, including Canada.

We also have increasingly “busy” lives, which makes slow-cooking, growing our own food and even label reading cumbersome. The food guide is all we’ve got as a high-level, broad-reaching document to guide us in our eating habits. If Freedhoff is right and it’s contributing to overweight and obesity, rather than hindering it, it may be time for a revamp. The contributing factors to overweight and obesity are obviously complex. My personal theory is that the urban, indoor lifestyle and sedentary work many of us do are among the biggest contributing factors. But we are also a society that, frankly, eats too much – particularly compared to our physical output – and we are eating too much of the wrong things. Surely, our national food guide should take that into account and, at minimum, give us a more optimum prescription for eating right.

debate at the University of Ottawa in recent months has put into question the validity of Canada’s Food Guide. Designed to promote healthy eating with prescriptive doses from the various food groups, the colourful rainbow is meant to help us make the right choices when it comes to food. “Does Canada’s Food Guide promote weight gain?” That was the name of the debate and the question put forward by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, director of the Bariatric Medical Institute. His opponent was Dr. Hasan Hutchinson, director-general of the Office of Nutrition Policy and Promotion at Health Canada. Freedhoff, an avid blogger and pundit on the overweight and obesity issues, makes a number of valid arguments against the food guide. He argues that if people eat the portions recommended in the guide, for example, they will gain weight. One of the main problems with the current food guide, argues Freedhoff, is that it’s based on portions, but nobody knows what a portion size looks like anymore. Over time, our plates have become bigger and our notion of portion size has become skewed as a result. The increased trend of eating in restaurants makes this problem more pronounced. Did you know, for example, that a portion size of meat should be about the size of a

Kanata Lasers player wins sports and academic award Stothart continues late father’s legacy Adam Kveton

Sports - Kanata Lasers player Alex Stothart has been recognized for his ability on and off the ice with the Neilson-Peckett Award, announced on March 24. The Central Canada Hockey League player won the award based on his excellence as a hockey player and as a student. Stothart, an assistant captain with the Kanata Lasers, was third in team scoring with 42 points last season. He is also a part-time student at Queen’s University in a bachelor of engineering program, and graduated from high school with a 93 per cent average. Stothart said he is proud to be recognized for his academic ability and happy to continue to mirror his late father’s hockey career and academic path. “My focus has been more on the ice, but it’s just nice to get recognized for something that goes beyond that,” said Stothart. According to a press release, Stothart is excelling in his engineering course work, which includes calculus, statistics and programming courses, attaining A and A+ marks. While he views balancing school and hockey as a worthy challenge, he is not the first Stothart to pull it off. Stothart’s father, Paul Stothart, was an assistant captain

for the Nepean Raiders in the CCHL as well, and also a Queen’s University engineering grad. Stothart said his father’s exploits in both hockey and university were some of the factors that influenced his plan to play in the CCHL and learn engineering at Queen’s. “It’s kind of funny because Kanata and Nepean are almost rivals, and he was a Nepean Raider,” he said. Stothart said he is unsure whether the Neilson-Peckett Award was around during his dad’s time, but said, “I’m sure he would have been in the running for it.” Now, Stothart said he hopes to continue to make his dad proud and “put up some good numbers” at Queen’s. The plan is to go to Queen’s full time next year and play for either the varsity team or play his last year of junior hockey in Kingston. “The goal is mainly to play university hockey while I’m doing my engineering degree.”After that, Stothart figures an MBA would serve him well, then on to a promising career. No matter what the future holds, Stothart said learning to play in the CCHL and attend school at the same time will continue to be a major benefit. “To be a full-time student and play junior is something you can do, there are a lot of guys who do it,” said Stothart. “You just have to make sure you are not in over your head, but you are also challenging yourself enough to stay active in both hockey and school.” According to a press release, this year’s awarding of


Alex Stothart plays in 2013, wearing the team’s Stallions jersey. The team name was changed back to the Kanata Lasers this January. the Neilson-Peckett Award was especially important, as Art Neislon, for whom the award was co-named, passed away this year. It was important to the league that the player chosen for the award be someone Neilson would have

admired. “Art liked a player who worked hard and had the ability to contribute both offensively and defensively. Stothart is that type of player: he has been a leader for Kanata during his whole time there,” said Pete Peckett, CCHL vice

president of team information quoted in the news release. The league also honoured six other players on its 20122013 All-Academic team, including: • Goalie Michael Pinios (Smiths Falls Bears)

• Defensemen Bobby Williams (Cumberland Grads) and Michael Vered (Nepean Raiders) • Forwards Alex Stothart, Ryan Kuffner (Gloucester Rangers) and Alex Row (Kemptville 73’s)

Mufferaw monicker miffs ‘several’ fans RedBlacks rename mascot after complaints about anglicized name Adam Kveton

Adam Kveton/Metroland

The Ottawa RedBlacks mascot celebrates his naming with students at Kanata’s French public school in Morgan’s Grant . Though he was originally named Joe Mufferaw, he was subsequently rebranded Big Joe in English and Grand Jos in French on March 31. Francophones had expressed their displeasure over calling him Mufferaw, the anglicized version of Montferrand. they felt the use of the anglicized version of Montferrand alienates FrenchCanadians, and even expunges the Outaouais legend’s francophone roots. Campbell said the negative feedback came from several social media sources, through emails and phone calls, but did not say just how many complaints were received. After Friday’s announcement, the school’s principal, Matthieu Vachon, said Big Joe Mufferaw was, “a wonderful choice of name.” “Jos Montferrand is a pioneer of French language rights in Ontario, so it’s a great choice of name for the mascot of the team, and it shows the heritage of Ottawa and eastern Ontario,” he said. Vachon could not be reached to comment on the name change.

OSEG is placing emphasis on the francophone community with the launch of the RedBlacks, with Campbell saying that community has been ignored in the past. “Francophone fans have been neglected by past teams in the CFL here, the Roughriders and the Renegades,” he said. “We were very cognizant that we needed to do better with francophone fans and I think that it’s incumbent on us to make sure that we do everything we can to continue making inroads with the francophone community.” Hunt’s statement in the OSEG news release echoed a similar sentiment, saying he didn’t want to divide fans. “We hope to create a fan base that is unified in its support for the RedBlacks and we will continue to strive

to do our best in that regard.” But along with the name change comes several questions: will the Stompin’ Tom Connors song feature at RedBlacks games? Will the planned new series of Big Joe Mufferaw books go ahead? How will teachers at Kanata’s French public school break the news to students that Big Joe

Mufferaw has been axed? Or at least a part of him. Campbell said that a conversation with regards to Stompin’ Tom Connors’ song had not been had as of March 31, the books will still go ahead, but with the character being referred to as Big Joe in English and Grand Jos in French.

Ottawa Valley Tours


Sports - More than 100 students from the Kanata French public elementary school in Morgan’s Grant cheered the announcement of the RedBlacks mascot name – Big Joe Mufferaw – on March 28. But, by March 31, the name was changed: shortened to “Big Joe” in English, and “Grand Jos” in French. According to a RedBlacks news release, the franchise “unintentionally offended some with the original name,” reads a quote from Jeff Hunt, president of Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group sports, “and we sincerely apologize for that.” OSEG spokesman Barre Campbell, said the group received negative feedback mostly from francophones. He said OSEG “felt it necessary to move quickly on the issue.” The origin of the name comes from the main character in a series of books by Bernie Bedore, who based his character, Joe Mufferaw, on Joseph Montferrand, a French-Canadian logger and French language rights pioneer. The Big Joe Mufferaw character was made more famous with the Stompin’ Tom Connors song of the same name. The change might come as a shock to students who, at the unveiling, greeted the announcement with whoops of applause, clamouring to shake hands with and hug the mascot. The unveiling did not go quite the same elsewhere in Ottawa. Some went to Twitter to express their delight at the Big Joe Mufferaw name, as a fan poll showed thousands in support of it. However, others said

CITY OF OTTAWA CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT COMBINED SEWAGE STORAGE TUNNEL NOTICE OF FILING OF ADDENDUM In February 2013, the City of Ottawa completed a ‘Schedule C’ Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to develop a preferred solution and functional design for additional storage of combined sewage in the ultimate combined sewer area of Ottawa. In 2013, Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel (CSST) Environmental Study Report (ESR) was completed. The preferred design of the CSST consists of an east-west tunnel (EWT) through the downtown core from LeBreton Flats to New Edinburgh Park and a north-south tunnel (NST) along Kent Street from Catherine Street to the existing outfall north of Wellington Street. The 2013 ESR concluded that the preferred design for the NST would include a construction staging area in St. Laurent Square. After consultation took place during preliminary design of the CSST in 2014, it was determined that the CSST could be extended south to Chamberlain Street for an alternative construction staging area for the NST. The resulting change in the preferred construction staging area requires additional property. An addendum is required to evaluate the potential environmental implications.

Cleanup to prepare for Beaverbrook Mayfair Parade KBCA

Community - Kanata’s Beaverbrook Community Association is reviving the Mayfair Parade that was a popular feature in the early days of the community. This year’s parade will take place on Victoria Day, Monday May 19, and will feature bicycles, pets and games for children of all ages. In preparation for Mayfair, the annual Beaverbrook cleanup day will take place Saturday May 3, two weeks before the parade, and will concentrate on cleaning the community pathways. “We’re hoping that about 100 parents and children will help us to clean the pathways in Beaverbrook,” said the association’s membership director, Jim Shearon. Cleanup activities will begin at 10 a.m. on May 3. Each party will be pro-

vided with a map of the pathways and clean-up supplies. All volunteers are invited to enjoy hot dogs and fruit drinks back at the community centre, 2 Beaverbrook Rd. Mayfair activities will include a parade of bicycles and pets along the paths in each cluster. Prizes will be awarded for the best bicycle decorations and for the most interesting pet. Family softball games and horseshoe pitching contests are among the activities planned. More details about cleanup day and the Mayfair Parade will be discussed at the association’s annual general meeting on April 24 in the Beaverbrook Community. Anyone who would like to help with cleanup day or the Mayfair Parade is asked to contact Jim Shearon, 613-592-4453.

City puts off studying lit signs Laura Mueller

News - A “proliferation” of illuminated digital signs in business windows doesn’t deserve to be studied – yet. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs suggested the city study LED signs, which chief building official Arlene Gregoire said can be bought for $200. But on March 26, the planning committee decided to refer the issue to the next term of council, to be considered as part of council’s priorities for the four years following the election of a new council on Oct. 27. Gregoire agreed with Hobbs that the issue could merit review. “Unless we have rules before this proliferation occurs, you’re stuck with nonconforming rights,” Gregoire said. She agreed there was a need to study the signs – not necessarily to create another layer of bureaucracy or a permit process or fee, but to look at what restrictions might be put in place to prevent the signs from bothering neighbours. Hobbs said a resident in the Holland Avenue area of her ward complained to her office about a lit sign, which prompted the councillor’s interest in the issue. “When you get into urban areas, people are living right across from businesses,” Hobbs said. “When you look at a proliferation, it can lead to a problem.” She suggested a study could lead to a recommenda-

Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said the issue isn’t a priority. “We’re reacting to not a huge outcry from anyone,” she said. “It looks like another layer of bureaucracy that no one in the city wants.” Alex Lewis, executive director of the Bells Corners Business Improvement Area, agreed. He told the committee he visited the business that prompted the complaint – a shwarma restaurant – and found the sign is on a timer

that goes off at 10 p.m. “In this instance, it’s like killing a flea with a shotgun,” he said. “We have enough things working against small businesses in Ottawa.” College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who represents Bells Corners, said it’s important for the city to make a distinction between advertising signs and works of art. Gregoire said the city’s policies are clear when it comes to distinguishing a sign from a work of art – if the sign or mural includes a product or service being advertised, it’s not art.

Don’t let learning slip while school is out this summer Community - Everybody loves vacation time and the break from the ordinary routine. Students are no exception. However, for students, vacation time can be detrimental to learning as school breaks are often when school momentum and good habits begin to slip. “While children should have fun with their time off, they shouldn’t take a complete break from learning,” says Dr. Nick Whitehead, the CEO and founder of Oxford Learning. According to Dr. Whitehead, maintaining learning momentum over spring break is especially important. “More than any other school-year break, the spring holidays are an important time to pay special attention to maintaining habits. This is the last stretch of the school year and final report cards are not that far away.” He adds that in the scope

of the school year, spring break is a critical time for students; by not taking a break from learning, students can actually make academic gains rather than losing momentum. Most students have projects, essays, assignments, or reading that can be worked on during this period. Even if due dates are weeks away, holidays are the perfect time to get a head start on schoolwork. According to Dr. Whitehead, if students do not have assigned work, it is a good idea to spend at least an hour a day engaged in activities to keep their brains in learning mode. By keeping the brain engaged over the school break—even in just an hour a day—students will stay mentally agile and motivated to learn.

Breastfeeding: Supporting Moms, Supporting Babies The Ottawa Breastfeeding Buddies program pairs new mothers with volunteers who have breastfed their children for six months or longer. The program boasts 58 volunteer buddies who speak 17 languages and were paired up with close to 120 moms in 2013. From modest beginnings of five volunteers in 2005, to 58 today is due in large part to a simple premise: mothers want to give back.

City lowers patio fees for 2014 No large increase in number of sidewalk patios expected Laura Mueller


The city has temporarily reduced fees for sidewalk restaurant patios while they study a policy change. pected last year – partially due to a pilot project to add patios on Elgin Street – reducing the patio fees for one year won’t change the $570,000 budget for the program, the report states. The broader review of the sidewalk encroachment bylaw will be reported to planning committee in time for the 2015 patio season. In recent years, the city has expanded patio opportunities in other ways. Fees were cut in half for Preston Street for two years at the request of the local merchants association in hopes of spurring more restaurants to add more patios to the dining hot-

bed of Little Italy, however, only one new patio was established during that time. Six Elgin Street establishments were given approval to try out patios on a narrower sidewalk for two years. That pilot project is ongoing for another summer. In 2011, city council reduced the distance patios need to be separated from residential areas. While the old rules required at least 30 metres from homes, the new rules would allow patios to be installed with no minimum separation distance from residences if there are no objections from neighbours.

News - The snow shows no signs of melting, but the city is already looking forward to patio season. Recognizing the socio-economic benefits of sidewalk restaurant patios, the city’s planning committee approved a reduction in the fees charged for patios on March 25. For the 2014 season only, the patio encroachment fee will be $1.23 per square metre per day – a 10 per cent reduction. That temporary decrease will give city staff time to conduct a broader review of sidewalk patio policies and fees. Ottawa’s current patio fees of $1.37 per square metre per day are higher than other cities. Patio fees in Toronto range between $0.14 to $0.57 per square metre per day. According to a staff report, demand for sidewalk patios in downtown Ottawa is “inelastic” and therefore the demand for new patios isn’t likely to increase if the fees are reduced. Since there were more new patios than ex-

Mentorship program lets teens test out tech skills Enrollment in computer courses grows 35 per cent following mentorship program Laura Mueller

News - When Notre Dame High School students Erica Tan and Filsan Nur started a project to make a mobile app, they had no idea how to code software. But two semesters later, the 16-year-old girls were making slices of cheese and tomatoes, leaves of lettuce and buns and patties fly across the screen of a BlackBerry Playbook tablet in their game, Burger Party. Behind the images of fast-food snacks that make up their burgerbuilding game are complex lines of code the girls learned how to write thanks to resources and mentoring through the program. “We were coming in in Grade 10

with no idea how to code or anything like that, so this was all trial and error for us,” Filsan said., which kicked off in 2012 with almost $1 million in funding from FedDev Ontario, the federal government’s economic development branch for southern Ontario. It brings together tech companies that provide software and mentors to students enrolled in computer and communica-

tions technology courses at local high schools. Filsan and Erica are two of the 13,000 students who’ve been exposed to the basics of computer programming through their school curriculum since the program began.’s mentoring program has expanded from four to 55 schools in those two years, assisting 2,000 students. In the schools it’s been offered, enrollment in computer science and communications technology courses has gone up 35 per cent. That shows the program is increasing awareness about the importance of tech skills and the job opportunities available to young people, said Steve Evraire,’s director. In the future, wants to partner with Labour Market Ottawa to get more information about tech careers into high schools. “In many cases, students, parents and even sometimes guidance counsellors are unaware of some of the really, really interesting careers that are available,” Evraire said. But the fundamental goal isn’t just to get kids coding, he said. It’s to reimagine how students acquire key skills they’ll need for the job market in the digital age. Imparting the skills needed for critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity is just as important, he said.

Voter groups demand Conservatives fix Fair Elections Act tive errors during the last election.

Derek Dunn

News - Arguing that the Elections Canada is being rendered toothless and hundreds of thousands will be denied the right to vote through the Fair Elections Act bill being touted by the Conservative government, opponents rallied at Pierre Poilievre’s office and 24 others across the country last week. They delivered an 80,000-strong petition in March that opposes the strict voter ID requirements – which may affect largely non-Conservative low income or younger voters – and called for election fraud investigators to be given the power to compel political operatives to testify. Called Let People Vote!, the national day of action was organized by, the Council of Canadians, and the Canadian Federation of Students. They maintain the Conservative party has a track record of subverting election laws. The inand-out scandal, the robocalls affairs and others have led to repeated confrontations with Elections Canada. The proposed Fair Elections Act – dubbed the Unfair Elections Act by opponents – will scale back Elections Canada’s investigative powers. Council of Canadians national chairwoman Maude Barlow said in a press release the act removes Canadians’ right to know when election fraud has been reported and if it is being investigated. “The Unfair Elections Act does nothing to bring to justice the people behind the widespread election fraud in 2011 and would actually make it harder to catch perpetrators of election fraud like Pierre Poutine,” Barlow said, referencing the fictional person linked to the robocalls during the last federal election. “The fact that this bill would prevent that is deeply troubling.” The Liberal candidate for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, Karen McCrimmon, says Elections

Protesters gather outside Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre’s office to rally against his government’s Fair Elections Act. Canada’s investigations side is “being rendered useless.” “They are going to take it out of Elections Canada, an arm’s-length agency and put it into the Justice Department. Under the minister, who is a politician. That is really dangerous,” said McCrimmon, a retired Canadian Armed Forces lieutenant colonel. “You know, democracy is fragile. It’s perishable. I’ve been to enough places around the world – and this is unacceptable.” Firing back at the barrage of criticism from former provincial chief electoral officers, political observers and think tank spokespeople, Conservatives have lambasted “liberal elites” for what Poilievre calls “hyperbole” and “hysteria.” Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O’Connor wouldn’t defend his party’s position when asked to comment, but McCrimmon has a feeling it would be less on substance than on insults. “That isn’t much of a counter, but that’s what they do. They try to insult you and ruin your rep-

utation,” she said. “And that isn’t right. Canadians have a right to disagree with them without having their reputations sullied and attacked.” According to a recent Angus Reid Global poll, many Canadians agree with her sentiments. Sixty-two per cent of those surveyed said “the Conservative government is motivated politically and dislikes Elections Canada.” The poll was conducted online with 1,511 Canadians of voting age on Feb. 21, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. Poilievre penned a response to criticisms in the Globe and Mail. It was immediately shot down in the newspaper’s unprecedented fifth editorial against the bill for not addressing fraud prevention measures and proposing to sacrifice hundreds of thousands of Canadians’ right to vote to solve what many call minor administra-

According to Democracy Watch, an independent federal watchdog organization, the Fair Elections Act will make federal elections more unfair in five ways, and the bill fails to correct five unfair flaws in the current system. The organization says the act will make federal elections more unfair by: • Requiring more ID to vote, which will make it more difficult for hundreds of thousands voters to vote. Instead Democracy Watch says the current ID rules should be kept with the voter registration card added to the list of valid ID, and Elections Canada should be empowered and given the resources to hire election workers earlier and train them better, and to make the voter registration list even more accurate. • Allowing wealthy people and banks to give more money to parties and politicians (and to give some candidates unlimited donations in secret). • Allowing political parties to hide millions of dollars of election campaign spending that secretly violates spending limits, and to audit their own spending. • Allowing the ruling party to choose who runs voting stations on election day. Democracy Watch says Elections Canada should appoint these people. • Requiring secrecy by election watchdogs. Bill C-23 requires the commissioner of Canada elections and the director of public prosecutions to keep their rulings on complaints about election law violations secret.

Lady Gaga, Killers, Blake Shelton to headline Bluesfest Brier Dodge

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Bluesfest director Mark Monahan speaks to reporters at a press conference shortly after announcing the Bluesfest lineup on March 26. Courtney Constable is arguably one of Lady Gaga’s biggest fans, and wrote her university masters degree thesis at Carleton University on the artist. The Centretown resident has also worked at Bluesfest the last several summers, and frequently attends the performances at Lebreton Flats. “I’ve never been so happily overwhelmed in my entire life,” she said about hearing

the news Lady Gaga would be a Bluesfest performer. Constable co-runs a Lady Gaga YouTube channel, has driven across North American to see her perform and has met the singer several times. “We’ve been literally screaming about it all morning,” Constable said. “And I’m actually late for work because I was too excited to get my act together.”


Bluesfest will open up for Blake Shelton on July 3, alongside RL Grime, Tegan and Sara, Adventure Club, Gary Clark Jr. and Danny Brown. The Killers will play on July 9, and Lady Gaga will take the stage on July 5.

Arts - Bluesfest organizers announced the lineup for the festival’s 20th anniversary year on March 26. The headlining acts for the July 3 to 13 festival include Lady Gaga, the Killers, Blake Shelton, Queens of the Stone Age, Lady Antebellum and Journey. The lineup in not finished, and a headline act for the closing night on July 13 still needs to be announced, said Bluesfest director Mark Monahan. “Relatively speaking, we’re further along than we usually are,” he said, adding that Shelton’s performance was only confirmed the day before the lineup announcement. The list, in Bluesfest fashion, is also heavy on lesser known acts, and spreads the headliners out over the festival. “There seems to be a crowd now for most acts, not just the closing acts,” he said. “You’re likely going to see a great band that you’ve probably never heard of. That’s the way we approach the artistic programming.” This year 16 youth, ages 16 to 21, met on a weekly basis leading up to the festival, and gave input on different acts that they’d like to see. Isaac Sider-Echenberg, 17, said they gave input on some of the indie bands, and popular artists that high school students are keen to see live. Many of the bands they weighed in on are opening for headline acts, or playing on smaller stages at the festival. “We provided input on sometimes more of those niche artists,” he said. The performer all the advisory members at the press conference were excited about was Yung Lean, a Swedish rapper. Monahan had never heard of Yung Lean before the group pushed for him to come, said Ere’n Coyne, the group’s co-ordinator. “I don’t think anyone’s ever asked him to play a festival before,” Sider-Echenberg. “But he’s big with the high school and universityaged crowed.”

Unfortunately, until the frost is out of the ground and the roads are clean and dry it is impossible to do anything more than temporary fixes. Investment in our roads is the highest it has been in several years as improving our roads has been a priority for me. We are aware that there is repair work needed and we are getting it done. You may create a service request to notify the City of a pothole online at: pothole-road You will be required to provide the street name and number or street name and intersection closest to where the pothole is located.

News- Ottawa resident Yue Liu, drowned while vacationing in Cuba with his family on March 19. While playing with his son Connor, 7, in the shallow beach portion of the ocean at a Varadero resort, a powerful wave swept them both into a riptide toward deeper waters. Liu tried to hold his son’s head above water while calling for help. An unidentified Canadian man jumped into the water and was able to retrieve Connor in time to save him from drowning. Other Canadian vacationers as well as lifeguards were then able to pull Liu from the deep waters but efforts to resuscitate him failed; it was too late. He gave his last breath to ensure his son would live, according to family friend Andy Wang. Wang said his friend’s last words to Connor were, “I cannot save you anymore.” Liu leaves behind his wife Fanyan Bu, a nine-year-old daughter, son Connor, and Fanyan’s elderly parents. Liu’s parents in China have yet to be informed for fear of health complications at hearing the terrible news. funeral costs

The Canadian consular office indicates it will cost upwards of $10,000 to send Liu home to Canada to be buried. With the funeral costs, the Liu family is looking at an estimated $30,000 in expenses. The family now faces difficult financial challenges. “I know he deeply loved his family and worked hard to make sure they were taken care of,” said Wang, who is a member of the Liu family’s Centrepointe community and taught Connor kung-fu at age five. Neighbours of Liu’s wife and the Chinese community in Ottawa have set up a fundraising committee in order to help

Yue Liu, top, in a family photograph. Liu died recently while vacationing in Cuba and his family needs some financial help to deal with expenses. the family bring Liu home and cover funeral costs. In the last

weekend since the incident, the community raised over $20,000 for the family. According to Wang, as of March 26 more than 850 people have donated to the Liu family to help them not only with the funeral costs, but also to help support his widow, the children, and her parents. “These donations exemplify the strength and resolve of the community that surrounds the Liu family as they mourn the loss of a loving father, caring husband, and proud son,” said Wang. Wang said the family would like to find the courageous Canadian who saved Connor. They are deeply touched by the acts of bravery, kindness, generosity and compassion of the man and others who came to

the rescue in Cuba. Liu immigrated to Canada from Beijing, China, and moved to Ottawa after graduating from Dalhousie University, in Halifax, alongside his wife. He worked in IT, without many other interests other than taking care of his family. “Most recently, I sat next to Mr. Liu while he was taking pictures of his daughter’s dance performance at a Chinese new year event,” said Wang.

NCC crafts vision for urban land holdings Riverfronts, parkways among areas considered Steph Willems

News - The National Capital Commission wants the public’s take on what it should do with its many land holdings in the Ottawa-Gatineau area. The federal body is planning for the future with its capital urban lands master plan, which covers parks, green space around waterways, the Experimental Farm, and the city’s many parkways. In addition to an online questionnaire, a public workshop was held March 26 at the National War Museum. Mark Kristmanson, chief executive of the NCC, told participants he was only six weeks into his new post -- a job that came with “a big learning curve” -- but he wanted to move forward with the organization’s plans on schedule. “There is quite a lot of public interest in this plan and process,” said Kristmanson. “We’ve had an online survey, where 503 people have completed at least the first question on the survey, and just under 300 people who completed all the questions.” When asked how many people in attendance were from Gatineau, a few hands were raised, though many more were

raised when asked if they hailed from the downtown (or neardowntown) area. “One of the things that strikes me about this plan is the relationship of the core to the non-core of the city,” said Kristmanson, who then talked of Ottawa’s history of sprawl and the need for preservation of green space. “The discussions we have today about these spaces will be very important in the decades to come,” he said, asking participants to think of changes in technology, transportation, global warming as things to consider while answering questions.  “In the end, the strategic importance of the urban lands and the parkways to the region’s vitality are critical.” Participants then broke out into working groups to identify issues with the current lands and ways to improve them. The first order of business was to decipher some of the bureaucratspeak in the NCC’s descriptions of its vision for the various lands. Once that hurdle was cleared, ideas poured forth. One participant, who wished to not be named, described the city’s parkways as “high-speed commuter access routes” that present a barrier to water and

green space in many locations. As a kayaker, he said he’d like to see more access to the shoreline of the river. Sylvia Bogusis said she wished to see more naturalized settings within the green space the NCC oversees. “(Green space) can be a few trees and a big lawn, but that’s not naturalized space,” said Bogusis. “There are a lot of spots where you could bring in native species, as opposed to an open, mowed field.” Greater animation -- historical learning and recreation opportunities -- were discussed for shorelines and public parks in the city. A strong desire for the NCC to exercise flexibility

in handling proposals was also expressed. Hintonburg resident Emily Addison said she’d like to see opportunities for community gardens within sections of NCC green space near neighbourhoods with limited growing space. “Communities can create something creative and valuable on land that isn’t being used,” said Addison, referencing a plot of land on Burnside Road that’s being eyed by the Mechanicsville community. The NCC’s urban lands master plan consultation continues online until April 6, and can be accessed at R0012619437-0403

CARP ROAD LANDFILL The City has received an application to amend the zoning to permit the new landfill of Carp Road that has been approved by the province. A public session is tentatively set for May 5 to go over the application, and I’m meeting with my west end colleagues to learn more about it. Watch this column for further updates prior to the meeting. GET THOSE NOMINATIONS IN! DEADLINE IS APRIL 4 Four community awards will be given (youth, adult, senior, organization) to individuals (1st 3 categories) or group (private, non-profit) who reside in and/or have done volunteer or charitable activities that benefit Kanata North. All nominees will be recognized at a special event, The Community Recognition Awards Ceremony, on April 27. Forms are available at, at my office, the Beaverbrook Library Depot & RRCK. Nominate and recognize those who make a difference in our community. CANADA POST Despite the need for public consultation on the location for Canada Post boxes in the Beaverbrook Community, I have received information from City Planning staff that includes recommended locations for all boxes to serve Beaverbrook. Apartments will have no change to their service, and Canada Post has met with condominiums to determine locations, since they need permission to go on private property. For the rest of us, the boxes will be on public property and, under federal legislation, Canada Post can put them anywhere on our road allowances and other lands. Despite that, I believe that the public should have a say in the locations when they are being placed within an existing community. Hence, I’m working with the KBCA to hold a public session where we can show you what is being proposed, get your feedback, and report back to the City and to Canada Post on any changes we feel are appropriate. I’ll send out an email and report in this column the date and place of such meetings.

Schools may change daily bell times Transportation authority eyes changes for 2015 Michelle Nash


The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority will hold a number of consultations across the city concerning proposed bell time changes for all Ottawa-area schools.

News - The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is proposing to make bell time changes for all Ottawa-area schools starting in September 2015. The moves would affect both the public and Catholic school boards and would involve changes to walking zones for certain schools. As a result, the authority will launch a number of public consultations across the city to present the changes to parents and to hear concerns starting on April 2. According to the general manger for the authority, Vicky Kyriaco, the changes are aimed at making the organization more efficient. The authority was established in 2007 in response to the Ministry of Education’s reform on transportation, which called on school boards across the province to develop partnerships and combine transportation departments. According to the authority’s bylaws, Kyriaco said, it can make bell time changes at schools of up to 10 minutes before needing to seek

approval with the respective board. Since these changes are greater than 10 minutes, the authority will seek a decision from both school boards in December 2014. The route changes will allow for one bus to take students to three different schools, saving the boards an estimated $3.3 million. These cost-savings, Kyriaco said, are based on what the authority believes is the most efficient system for buses and could change depending on feedback received at the consultations. According to the public school board, as many as 38,000 to 40,000 students require daily transportation to and from school. The walking distance is currently 800 metres for kindergarten children and 1.6 kilometres for grades 1 to 8. Grades 9 through 12 must walk if a student lives within 3.2 km of their school. Parents are encouraged to view the maps, and depending on the routes, point out concerns but there is little flexibility for changes to be made. The consultations, which begin in April, will present specific plans to spe-

cific neighbourhood school zones. “The most important message is that it is not written in stone, we do want to hear from the school communities,” Kyriaco said. The changes follow a study of existing routes conducted by an outside firm that evaluated and highlighted potential safety hazards. “There would be little which would surprise us there,” Kyriaco said. The comments, she said, would still be welcome, because depending on the concern, any highlighted hazards could possibly be mitigated, adding the authority would work with the city to make certain street intersections more pedestrian-friendly. Currently the proposed bell time changes and new walk zones are available to view at An online survey is also available on the website for parents to fill out. The consultations begin at Brookfield High School on April 2. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. A full list of where and when the other 27 consultations will take place is available at ottawaschoolbus. ca/policies/transformation/ meetings. Kyriaco said regardless of a particular meeting date, parents can attend any meeting in the city to send in comments. The authority will also post the presentation information online.

How To Select Flip Flops That Won’t Hurt Your Feet

Canadian Certified Pedorthists suggest the following: • Don’t be tempted to grin and bear it even if the flip flops appeal to your

sense of style. Start by looking at the base of each one and make sure they match the shape and length of your feet. If your feet are too wide or your heel or toes hang over the edge, they are not right for you. • Look for flips flops that have a thicker sole and a slight difference in height between the heel and ball of the foot. More protection under the heel provides better shock absorption. • Choose ones with a footbed that has an arch contour for support and a deep heel cup to reduce the risk of turning your ankle. • Adjustable straps are essential. As flip flops are usually made out of material that softens or stretches over

Community—Nothing says summer like a pair of fashionable, lightweight flips flops, but experts say we should think carefully when we reach for our summer footwear. “We strongly recommend balancing style and ease with comfort and support,” says Ryan Robinson, a Canadian Certified Pedorthist and president of the Pedorthic Association of Canada. “If you are at the pool or sitting in the back yard, flip flops may be an appropriate choice. But if you are walking any distance, a pair of flimsy, ill-fitting footwear can cause a lot of harm.” Basic flip flops, he says, lack support and often fit badly, which can lead to strains and pains in the feet, ankles, knees, hips and back. Unlike walking shoes, which are designed to meet the requirements of the foot and lower limbs, most flip flops do not provide the support, motion control and cushioning required by the foot during walking. For the committed, however, not all flip flops are created equal. Unlike the bargain-basement brand, some footwear companies design them with the health of your feet in mind. To minimize injury, flip flop lovers should look for ones with supportive footbeds, adjustable straps, thicker soles and deep heel cups to provide the foot with much needed support and protection. Although these more supportive styles should never be substituted for walking shoes when a long walk or rough terrain is involved, they are a suitable choice for short walks and may reduce the risk of injury compared to regular varieties.

Trudeau tackles college students’ questions Samantha Long

News - A new generation of more engaged young people became Justin Trudeau’s message when he stopped by Algonquin College on March 28 to help announce the school’s newest student president and vice-president. “This reputation that young people have about being apathetic is completely misplaced,” said the Liberal party leader. “Young people that disconnect from politics do so, not because they don’t care … it’s because they don’t get to shape the discussion, they don’t get listened to in politics. It’s not about not caring, it’s about caring too much that you step away to protect yourself.” In partnership with the police and public safety program at the college, the presentation included a no-limits question and answer session that ranged from topics such as military spending to the senate scandal, to his favorite Canadian artists. As a former teacher, Trudeau emphasised the importance of an educated population for the future, with seven out of 10 jobs requiring some form of post-secondary education. He said passion should be the sole motivator when choosing a career path because people will often follow societal expectations and not necessarily ones that are the best fit for them. Trudeau reflected on his time in

university, agreeing that the most influential experiences were those spent outside the classroom environment. He emphasized that student associations are hugely important to campus life because they not only provide opportunities for leadership, but also a voice for the student body.

“It’s not about not caring, it’s about caring too much that you step away to protect yourself.” Justin Trudeau

“We develop habits of active citizenship ... when our community is still a school,” said Trudeau. Though he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, Trudeau said his father taught him to make decisions for himself, especially with his involvement in politics and the Liberal party. “The decision we make about the parties we support should be based on values,” he said, adding they “shouldn’t be based on voting the same way your parents did, or voting the opposite way that your parents did.” “They should be based on decisions we make as young adults and adults.”

Community - Nepean resident Lynn Spencer, who resides in the Craig Henry area, remembers hearing a fair amount of publicity about the National Training Centre opening in Manotick.  Shovels were in the ground in 1987 and shortly thereafter the organization moved from rented space in a townhouse to an impressive facility located on Rideau Valley Drive North in Manotick, which remains as the home of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind today. For Spencer, it took more than 25 years before she became involved with the organization as a volunteer. “I have wanted to be a puppy walker since the first time I heard about Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind,” she says. “I was working full time outside of the home then, so the timing was not right for me.  Once I began working from my home office a few years ago, I seized the opportunity.” Steven Doucette of the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind says many people believe that you must be retired to do this. “That is not the case,” Doucette said. “People often tell me they want to do it when they retire, but there is no reason to wait that long.”  According to Doucette, there are individuals from all walks of life who take a pup into their home to raise and train for the organization. “We have stay-at-home parents, post-secondary students, people who work from home or own their own business, part-time workers and, of course, retirees. “We also have people that get permission to take the dog to work. This includes some federal government employees. They have to go through a bit more red tape to get permission, but it is possible. More important than who can do this is who can’t. The main thing is that we don’t want the dog left home alone all day.” Spencer started volunteering in 2012, when

One year later, boys from Mindware share their story West Carleton Review

News - A year ago, all Jayden Findlay was thinking about was how to deal with his emotions and try to control his verbal diarrhea. Now Findlay said everything has improved -- especially what he calls his “filter.”Font_PalatinoLinotype_Bold He is focused on academics and Location_MyriadPro_Bold his desire to finishing a science fiction novel.ALL TYPE OUTLINED The only thing that has stayed the same is his time spent at Mindware Academy and participating in the school’s after-school social group. “I have been able to make and keep friends,” Findlay said. The keeping a friend, according to his teachers, is probably one of his biggest achievements. Findlay agreed. “I am really proud of my accomplishments,” he said. Diagnosed with a non-verbal learning disability, Findlay began attending the private school in the city’s west end because going to public school had become more about dealing with bullies and unsympathetic teaching staff. The school offers children with learning disabilities a different approach to education. The daytime and after-school social group helps boys like Findlay work on social interactions and feelings. Last year, the Kanata Kourier Standard spoke with Findlay and his

but were confident in the fact they have learned the skills to prosper. For Nightingale, he said if he gets anxious, he will be able to handle it. For Fejes, he said he has learned it is OK to walk away and ignore bullying. Fejes joked life would be easier if everyone had Asperger’s like him, but then he wouldn’t be special. “The fact that I will be in a school that will be more than one class full of students is frightening, but I am going to use my coping skills to make it through,” he said. Every single one of the boys said they have cherished the time they have spent in the social group and at the school.


Devey and Cameron Nielson about a letter they wrote, expressing their feelings and asking people to be open-minded and try to understand what it is like to live with a disability, like autism and Asperger’s syndrome. To celebrate Autism Awareness Day on April 3, the boys wanted to recap all that has happened in the past year. “Our school received many calls about the letter, many people who said they were touched by the boys’ words,” said their teacher, Susan Mancini. Beyond outside recognition of the letter, having the boys express their feelings was all part of the groups steps to becoming more successful in dealing with social situations, read-

ing people and understanding what is right and wrong. Last year, Callum Nightingale said he always felt stressed out and cried often. One year later, Nightingale has not only improved dealing with his social skills, nerves and stresses, he has also taken on a leadership role at the school. The 14-year-old has been helping younger boys and girls at the school, teaching them social skills and giving them tips and pointers he has learned -- something Mancini said shows how much he has improved. For many of the boys, this will be the last year they attend school at Mindware, as they are off to high school next year. Each has their own apprehensions about going back to a public school,

The school will host an information session about its social skills classes on April 24. Event organizer Caroline George, a social skills and after-school teacher at the school, said the classes aim to work on exactly what the students want to work on. Role-playing, social story-telling and team building are all part of the process she added, saying every day is never quite the same, but builds off of the last day. “You learn to really talk, to really relate to people,” Findlay said. “I strongly recommend it.” To read Kanata Kourier Standard’s original article, Asperger’s, autism kids speak out, visit

CHEO recognizes people, organizations who help kids Healthy Kids Awards shine light on seven community leaders Steph Willems

News - While the work accomplished at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario often receives publicity, good deeds by people in the greater community often go unnoticed. The CHEO Healthy Kids Awards is the hospital’s way of changing that, giving recognition to the people, organizations and programs in Ottawa that help children and youth.

pital, and saw awards presented by Mayor Jim Watson, CHEO board chairwoman Erin Crowe, and Lau-

reen Harper. “Too often, when someone does something sacrificial and excep-

tional, recognition is non-existant, applause is faint, and heartfelt thanks are seldom extended,” said Harper. “The good stories are not the ones on the front page.” Among the seven award categories is one specifically targeting youth-driven initiatives. Much like the panel of judges that review the award nominations, the winner of the youth award was vetted by a panel of young people. “(This award) embodies the spirit of youth in our community to make a difference for each other,” said Munter. This year’s youth for youth award went to Take Action Parkwood Hills, a community initiative that enlisted local young people to create and edit a documentary video about their neighbourhood, while having conversations with residents about the issues of beautification, safety, and recreation. The community champion award went to Steven Thomas, co-founder of Good Guys Tri, a non-profit organization that raises money for several charities. Thomas, who has been heavily involved in the initiative End Kids Cancer, credits his partners at Good Guys Tri for helping make a difference. “There’s so many great people involved in Good Guys Tri who help support us in our initiatives and campaigns, and we hope to continue to do good in the years to come,” said Thomas. Other awards included the community program award, which went to Christie Lake Kids STAR – a program that allows underprivileged kids to access recreation and life skills training. The help for special needs award went to the Gloucester Association for Children with Special Needs, which provides weekly swimming and artistic programs for special needs children. The Pediatric Complex and Chronic Care Clinic in Iqaluit, which partners with Ottawa health agencies, received the connected care award. The health advocacy and public education award was received by the Community Suicide Prevention Network and Building Capacity for GLBTTQ Youth Mental Health. Didn’t get your

Local Sochi paralympians honoured in Ottawa Brandon Gillet

News- Local athletes from the 2014 Sochi Paralympics were honoured by CIBC at their South Keys banking centre on March 28. Bronze medallists from team Canada men’s sledge hockey team, Ben Delaney and Marc Dorion, were among the five athletes who attended the event. Continuous rounds of applause erupted from family and friends for the smiling paralympians. Alongside the medallists were Caroline Bisson and Margarita Gorbounova of the biathlon/ para-nordic ski team and John Leslie of Arnprior from the para-snowboard team. Presenting the athletes with commemorative gold-plated medallions were CIBC district vice president Dean Chapman, and Karen O’Neill, chief executive officer of the Canadian Paralympic Committee. The large turnout nearly filled the banking centre. “It feels amazing, I didn’t expect this to be such a big turnout, and it’s definitely an incredible welcome home,” said Gorbounova. “I’m re-

ally thankful to CIBC for organizing this and to CPC of course.” She says being part of the Canadian team is a great honour, “I’m really proud to have represented Canada in Sochi.” “It kind of makes you feel like it doesn’t really matter what happened when you were over there,” said Leslie. “When you come back, Canadians are proud of you and super stoked on how everything went.” CIBC announced in October its four-year sponsorship of the Canadian Paralympic Committee. It is meant to broaden the bank’s support of Canada’s up-and-coming amateur athletes and enrich communities while inspiring the next generation of youth. “Congratulations to our athletes, coaches, and partners,” said O’Neill. “And again, thank you CIBC for honouring the Canadian Paralympic team in your great work in connecting our athletes across the country.” Member of Parliament David McGuinty spoke of the appreciation felt by the whole country at our athletes who competed in Sochi. “The world is watching what you’re doing,

how you’re doing it, and everyone is deeply proud,” said McGuinty. All five athletes spoke of the admiration they had for the support they received in Sochi and upon returning home. “As you know we come from a beautiful, spectacular country full of the nicest people,” said Leslie. “And it’s really nice to come home and have a lot of people showing support.”

Bisson shared an aspect of the paralympic team that drives them in their competition. “Paralympic athletes have a powerful message to share,” said Bisson. “That message is that everyone, as human beings have this incredible power to adapt, to bounce back when life circumstances brought to us are difficult. That is a power that each and every one of us has.”

Paralympic athletes from the Ottawa area were honoured by CIBC on Friday, March 28. Five paralympians, including two members of Canada’s bronze medal winning sledge hockey team were in attendance.

Ontario introduces law to combat invasive species Ontario. For more information, visit invasivespecies. If the proposed legislation is passed, Ontario will be the only jurisdiction in Canada that has stand-alone invasive species legislation. POWER TO BAN

The proposed Invasive Species Act, which was introduced in the provincial legislature in February, would give Ontario the tools to ban activities such as possessing and transporting certain high risk invasive species, enable rapid response actions to address urgent threats, and would help ensure compliance through modernized inspection and enforcement measures. “Preventing invasive species from arriving

and becoming established in Ontario is critical in our fight against this growing threat,” Orazietti said. “The proposed legislation would help by providing the powers to intervene earlier, so small problems don’t become bigger and lead to significant environmental and economic costs for Ontarians.” Invasive species can enter Ontario and spread across the province in different ways. Sometimes they are spread unintentionally – for example, recreational boaters who unknowingly transfer zebra mussels that are attached to their boat, from one body of water to another. But many times people introduce invasive species into Ontario knowingly – whether it’s purchasing invasive plants for gardening, dumping aquarium plants or pets into local waterways,

or moving contaminated firewood. Everyone can help prevent the spread of invasive species: • If you see an invasive species, report it to the Invading Species Hotline at 1-800-5637711 or • When camping, don’t transport firewood. You could accidentally spread an invasive insect that is hitchhiking in the firewood. Buy it locally, and leave what you don’t use. • When fishing, don’t empty your bait bucket in or near water. You could inadvertently help an invasive plant, fish or insect find a new home. • When boating, wash your boat before you move to another lake or river to avoid taking an invasive species with you.

News - As the province faces threats from invasive species such as Asian carp and the mountain pine beetle, the Ontario government has introduced a bill to support the prevention, early detection, rapid response and eradication of these species. “Invasive species cost the Ontario economy tens of millions of dollars each year,” said Minister of Natural Resources David Orazietti. “With the introduction of our proposed Invasive Species Act, Ontario is taking strong action to address the social, ecological and economic threats that invasive species pose.” Managing the impacts of just one invasive species – zebra mussels – is estimated to cost the province between $75 million and $91 million each year. These, and other invasive species, have impacts on the natural environment that are often irreversible. Asian carp have overwhelmed some river systems in the United States, where they now make up more than 95 per cent of the fish by weight in some areas. The European common reed, phragmites, is damaging Ontario beaches and wetlands. More than 180 non-native aquatic species have been found to occur in the Great Lakes basin, and some have been here for decades. Invasive species are found everywhere in the province, though the majority are in southern

Aiden has only been on the ice a few times, but is happy to imitate his father, yelling at him to sweep, and brushing off his rock before throwing it. Earlier in the afternoon, Savill donated his proceeds from the “Men of Curling” calendar to the Manotick Curling Centre’s youth leagues.

Student residence plan rejected Laura Mueller

News - City council shocked Sandy Hill residents by rejecting a locallymaligned private student residence. Even the local councillor, Mathieu Fleury, had no inkling that Mayor Jim Watson and 12 other members of council would come out against the nine-storey development proposal, which would have taken up most of the block between Friel and Nelson streets on Laurier Avenue East. Chad Rollins, vice-president of Action Sandy Hill, said the community group thought it only had eight councillors, including Fleury, on its side. “I am stunned and ecstatic,” Rollins said. “In all honesty we really didn’t think it would go that way.” Rollins said residents expect a development application is a done deal once it gets the stamp of approval from city staff and the planning committee. “You like to think what you do have made a difference, that the councillors listened to our points and saw they were valid,” he said. Watson said he wasn’t in favour of the proposal, which would have contained 180 one- and two-bedroom units, because he didn’t think it would be compatible with the streetscape or building heights in the area. Despite requiring both amendments to the zoning and the city’s Official Plan, it proposal would have “fit within the overall fabric” of the area, said John Smit, manager of urban development review.

It’s a point Fleury is trying to impress on his council colleagues for months, but he didn’t expect that point to be taken up so forcefully by the mayor and other councillors. “Some of them had made up their mind before, but obviously because of the debate at council, (they) realized the broader impacts, which we were flagging for the past months,” Fleury said. “We would be wise to send a message that this is an important heritage community that is under a lot of stress,” Watson said. Sending that message will cost the city in legal fees. The proponent, Viner Assets, can now appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board. But because city planners and the planning committee endorsed the development, the city will have to hire multiple independent experts to argue against the proposal if it’s appealed. “Inevitably, when you’re giving evidence before a (an Ontario Municipal board) hearing, you have your own staff giving evidence against your political position,” Hume said. “We will have to hire ... people to give professional evidence before the board, because we will have our people giving opposite evidence.” Kathryn Hendrick, a spokeswoman for Robert Viner and Viner Assets, declined to say whether the company would appeal the decision. “We respect the political process and we are reviewing all of our options,” she wrote in an email. During the debate on March 26,

some councillors, including Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, expressed concern about the de facto “expansion” of the University of Ottawa campus into the neighbouring residential community. “We should be assisting where the growth of campuses where necessary, but being clear about where the lines are,” Chernushenko said. “My concern is this has gone a number of blocks deeper into the neighbourhood.” Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes spoke out vocally against the proposal, saying it isn’t the city’s responsibility to provide housing for students and throw away a neighbourhood’s “heritage ambiance” in the process. “Why aren’t we dispersing those students? We have a fabulous transit system,” she said. River Coun. Maria McRae worried the provision to require 24/7 on-site supervision of the residence wouldn’t be enforceable. The councillors who voted 14-9 against the proposal included: Rick Chiarelli, Eli El-Chantiry, Chernushenko, Mark Taylor, Marianne Wilkinson, Fleury, Shad Qadri, Peter Clark, Keith Egli, Diane Deans, Holmes, Doug Thompson, McRae and Watson. Councillors who voted in favour included: Rainer Bloess, Stephen Blais, Steve Desroches, Bob Monette, Jan Harder, Katherine Hobbs, Tim Tierney, Allan Hubley and Hume. Scott Moffatt was absent. Hume said the proposal was appropriate because Sandy Hill is a dense neighbourhood and it’s an area that is

appropriate for intensification because it’s close to rapid transit and the downtown core. “We expect this kind of development and this kind of density in these places,” he said. Many councillors, including Fleury, were under the impression they had also voted to fast-track funding to update the secondary plan and community design plan for Sandy Hill. Later in the day it was revealed that didn’t happen, since the funding was technically tied to approving the Viner proposal. Fleury said he was happy with the main result – the rejection of the stu-

dent residence – but disappointed the secondary plan update wasn’t approved, but he emphasized the plan is still next in line to be update when funding becomes available. The councillor added that after speaking to his council colleagues, he doesn’t think he would have had enough support for his motion to fasttrack funding for the secondary plan review because there was a perception that rejecting the Viner proposal already represents an investment in Sandy Hill due to the cost of the OMB appeal.

Earn Extra Money! Bee deaths tossed back Keep Your Weekends Free!

at federal government Province still studying insecticide use; cancer group presses for moratorium Derek Dunn

Routes AvAilAble! We’re looking for Carriers to deliver our newspaper!

News - A promise for more studies before tossing the political hot potato back to the federal government was Premier Kathleen Wynne’s response to growing concerns over plummeting bee populations. Wynne, who is also the minister of agriculture and food, issued a statement on March 19 endorsing the Ontario Bee Health Working Group’s report “promoting” farmers’ use of non-insecticide treated seeds and “encouraging” newer technologies that reduce the risk on pollinators. “We continue to look to the federal government, the regulator of pesticides in Canada, to provide evidence-based direction on a national approach to neonicotinoid use,” said Wynne, whose government committed $1.2 million toward researching factors that affect been health, and related best management practices in field crop production. That’s much more of a waitand-see approach than groups calling for a moratorium or federal ban similar to that in Europe. Wynne insists her Liberal government is at the forefront of the issue, which affects every level of the food chain, by

expanding the scope of study. “I believe it’s important for Ontario to show leadership to address this important issue,” she said. “To build upon the work that has been done by this group, we are establishing a new Ontario Pollinator Health Working Group to expand our focus beyond bees and address issues and concerns regarding all pollinators in the province.” However, groups such as Prevent Cancer Now, which counts West Carleton chemical engineer Meg Sears among its directors, expects more pressure to be put on the federal government. That’s why the group penned a letter Feb. 19 to the senate’s Agriculture and Forestry Committee requesting a moratorium on neonicotinoid insecticides until proven that bees are not affected. Sears fears only intense pressure will convince Stephen Harper’s Conservative government to distance itself from powerful agricultural industry leaders and their reliance on insecticide use. She said past governments took advice from scientists and bureaucrats before moving forward; Harper’s does the opposite. Furthermore, the research being conducted by industry

on possible affects doesn’t follow rigorous scientific standards, she said. “It’s a completely false science being carried out,” Sears said, adding that laboratory conditions are not made to reflect real-life situations. Test subject cages are cleaned out weekly is one example she cited. Another problem is the lack of accounting for build up in the environment: the chemicals take many years to breakdown. They don’t disappear with the advent of another winter. “The toxicity is underestimated. These chemicals are very slow to break down.” But she admits that it is difficult to get at industry results. They are not made public and reviewed by independent scientists. “We should have access to this information but (Health Canada) says it is proprietary to businesses. So they are either withholding or don’t have the information,” Sears said. West Carleton has many corn and soy bean fields. The dust and possibility of chemicals seeping into groundwater are causing concern on social network sites throughout the ward. Sears sees rising bee deaths as a significant issue that affects everyone. “I’m very concerned. We don’t have our scientific ducks in a row,” Sears said. “Einstein said without pollinators humans won’t survive.”

News - New infill housing rules got the thumb’s up from citizen’s groups and the planning committee on March 25, but a council vote will be delayed until May after developers complained. The new rules the committee approved in principle would remove minimum parking requirements for low-rise housing in urban core neighbourhoods and make the starting point for new developments under four storeys a streetscape character analysis. But a provision that extended the rules to cover smaller, four-storey apartment buildings raised the ire of some of the city’s larger development interests, which had mainly steered clear of the debate because they assumed it wouldn’t affect them. A delay in taking the policy to city council will allow more time for consultation with those developers. Much of the outreach to the development industry involved speaking to companies that construct smallscale infill, said the city’s zoning and intensification manager, Alain

stittsvilleoptometry 1464 Stittsville Main St. 613-836-2030 Stittsville, ON


including Minto. “It has a larger impact than originally thought.” Michael Polowin, another lawyer representing a number of developers, told the planning committee it’s problematic that the new rules will also apply to existing homes if additions visible from the street are added. “This bylaw is going to catch those people even though they haven’t had the right to be heard on this,” Polowin said. In contrast, a few representatives from community associations who attended the day-long meeting applauded the new rules. “The reaction was very much ‘What took you so long?’” said Don Smith of the Westboro Beach Community Association. Both residents and developers agreed the city should do everything it can to widely circulate information about the forthcoming rules to homeowners, builders, real estate agents, architects and developers. If council signs off on the new rules on May 14, the new policy would go to the Ontario Municipal Board for final approval because the policy changes are part of an OMB order. Developers appealed the first phase of the city’s infill policy in 2012. A second phase of the infill policy that deals with building height and massing and in an expanded area encompassing all land inside the Greenbelt is expected to wrap up later this year.

The new rules planners are proposing will fundamentally alter the process of building a new infill home from the start of the project. The proposed rules are aimed at making streetscapes look more cohesive. While infill design used to begin with the parking space – which was required – city planners want the major requirement and starting point to be the streetscape from now on. The new rules can be summed up as “your street gives you your rules,” the planning report states. If the changes are approved, landowners and architects would first have to look at the 21 lots surrounding an infill and use those observations to create a starting point for what their new home could look like. Streetscape attributes that must be respected include: • Front-yard setbacks, as well as corner and side yards • Vehicle access (driveway or rear lane) • Parking space type and location on the lot • Location and use of walkways • Front-yard landscaping • Front door orientation • Visual prominence of the front wall An analysis of the street’s character doesn’t include the style of architecture. Observing the 21 neighbouring homes would determine which dominant “character groups” apply to the lot to be developed. Within each character group, there are a number of options for development to permit flexibility, according to the planning report; for instance, there are four character groups describing parking patterns. Brian Cassagrande, a planner from FoTenn who represented a number of developers at the planning committee meeting, said the new rules are too complex and extensive, which will make them difficult to implement and enforce. “It’s difficult for me even as a planner to understand what you’re dealing with here,” he said. Miguelez insisted the analysis is something landowners themselves can do without hiring a professional planner or surveyor to conduct the work. He has given the streetscape character analysis form to 100 people to test out and he said it’s surprising how savvy people are, especially when given the tools of the city’s GeoOttawa mapping system. Only after the streetscape attributes have been incorporated would a parking space be allowed. It is no longer a requirement to provide a parking space for new low-rise homes in inner-urban wards. Although builders would be allowed to provide parking, an obligation to provide parking would only kick in for dwellings with more than 12 units. Importantly, the new rules would extend to existing homes if additions are added. Previously, infill guidelines only applied to the construction of new homes.

Grade 10 student Amit Sheer pours liquid in the school science lab during a lunch break at Colonel By Secondary School.

Local high school student taking his science international Brier Dodge

News - Amit Sheer might be the kid who goes on to cure cancer. The Grade 10 student at Colonel By Secondary School recently created a project with small particles targeting cancer cells, which was accepted into the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. He’ll take his research to Los Angeles from May 11 to 16 to compete against high school students from over 70 countries. Of the 1,600 students competing for prize money in California, 12 are Canadian. His project’s name is a mouthful, titled Personalized Medicine: A Novel Quantum Dot Bioconjugate Targeted Cancer Therapy. In the project, he used tiny particles, called nanoparticles, to attach to a specific, targeted DNA strand. They attach through a chemical reaction to the target. Nanoparticle research can be useful in creating drugs to treat cancer that are less harmful to the surrounding tissue because the healthy DNA strands aren’t damaged or exposed to harsh treatments. While the Barrhaven student attends Colonel By for the prep years of the international baccalaureate program offered there, he had to look further to complete his science fair research. He was able to gain access to the science labs and equipment at Carleton University. Amit’s work has been confined to the lab, and didn’t feature trials, which would need significant approval. He said most new advances in the medical sciences take about a decade from theoretical research, through trials, to actually being applied on humans. He said he was shocked when he found out he was being sent to California as part of the Canadian delegation. “I actually think the person on the other end of the phone was surprised with my (excited) reaction,” he said. Amit will enter his project into several other science fairs this year, but getting accepted to the Intel International fair was catching the big fish. He’s entered into a medical sciences category, a field he wants to study after high school. “I think it’s really cool to do research on something that matters to the world,” he said. “I think nanotechnology is the next big thing.” And while getting a sponsored trip to California is icing on the cake, it’s not the driving factor behind Amit’s studies. He said he plans to study medical sciences, or potentially apply to medical school, in the future. “You can’t do anything if you’re not passionate about it,” he said.

Ottawa & Area - If you're like most homebuyers, you have two primary considerations in mind when you start looking for a home. First, you want to find the home that perfectly meets your needs and desires, and secondly, you want to purchase this home for the lowest possible price. When you analyze those successful home buyers who have been able to purchase the home they want for thousands of dollars below a seller's asking price, some common denominators emerge. While the negotiating skills of your agent are important, there are three additional key factors that must come into play long before you ever submit an offer. This topic has been the subject of extensive analysis by Industry Experts, and a summary of their findings, and a specific step-by-step purchase plan for homebuyers, can be found in a new special

The language of Canada’s settlers, whether French or English, was deeply rooted in their sense of identity and culture, and this sentiment still exists today, so much so that language politics have affected not only the day-to-day operations of federal institutions but also the cultural and linguistic makeup of Canadian society. To those who are bilingual, bilingualism is much more than just being able to say words and phrases in a language other than their own— it’s a doorway to new opportunities and possibilities.

Friends, family host leukemia swab-a-thon Michelle Nash

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Josh Smith rubs the cheek swab inside his mouth to get a sample to be tested as a bone marrow match at the Swab-a-thon on March 29 at Gezelig restaurant.

News - Family, friends and complete strangers came out in droves to help support one man’s fight with leukemia. Westboro’s Gezelig restaurant held a Swab-a-thon on March 29 in an effort to find a bone marrow match for Al Carpenter, who is suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Carpenter is a long-time family friend of Gezelig owner, Stephen

Beckta. “He wasn’t able to find a donor,” Beckta said. “We are under no illusions … the odds of finding a match are minute, but this event will also help sign up more donors for the stem cell donor bank.” The cancer is in Carpenter’s blood stem cells in his bone marrow. Beckta said his friend’s only chance of survival lies in finding a match for a bone marrow transplant. Although Carpenter’s odds of finding a match are slim, Beckta and Carpenter’s family were eager to spread the word about the Canadian Blood Services need for more donors. Beckta said the biggest need for donors is for men between the ages of 17 and 35. The event swabbed participants with Q-tip swabs of their cheeks. Whether or not they were a match, those who signed up were also adding their DNA information to the Canadian Blood Services stem cell bank. “The odds of being a match or being called are 0.05 per cent,” Beckta said. “But it’s important to still make sure people understand that.” According to the Canadian Blood Services, there are two types of donations: bone marrow stem cell donations are performed under anesthesia, with special, hollow needles to withdraw liquid marrow from the back the pelvic bones. Normally about a litre of fluid is taken and the procedure usually takes about 4590 minutes. Donors are typically discharged from the hospital the same day. The other type of donation, peripheral blood stem cell donation donates stem cells through blood. The donor will receive drug injections every day for four to five days. The stem cells are collected by donating blood, which is passed through a centrifuge, where the stem cells can be separated. The blood is then returned back to the donor, using a loop system. A donor’s bone marrow is completely replaced within four to six weeks. If you missed out on the event, but still want to see if you are a match, Beckta said there are many ways to donate. By visiting for more information, to order a home swab kit, sign up to be a donor or find local swab-a-thon events in your neighbourhood.

Never-ending winter wears on Mother MARY COOK M Mary Cook’s Memories it was sort of like getting the stomach flu, only there was no medicine to make it better. no paper

To make matters worse, the last big snow storm prevented the Philadelphia Inquirer from arriving at Ritza’s Drug Store. The paper was as thick as Eaton’s Catalogue, and once Mr. Ritza told Mother she was the only one in the entire county who got the Philadelphia Inquirer. So Mother was even without that connection to the city she had left, to live in the backwoods of Renfrew County, on a farm with no running water, no electricity and miles from the nearest town. It seemed to me that during the day, Mother was happier than she was at night this time of year. And again, my much wiser and older sis-

ter Audrey said it was because her days were filled with washing and ironing, baking, and keeping the old log house in tip-top shape. It was the evenings, when only the coal-oil lamp in the middle of the table lit the kitchen, and the wind howled outside, and the branches of the bare tree close to the house scraped against the windows, that Mother fidgeted at one end of the table, often staring off into space. She took to looking up to one corner of the kitchen ceiling, as if she were searching for something. Then she would give her head a shake, and bend down to her diaries in front of her. If Father was aware of the change in Mother, he said nothing. He still dozed in the rocking chair by the cook stove, puffing on his pipe until he fell asleep, and the pipe landed on his chest leaving his

mouth, or as often happened, slid to the floor, landing on the Ottawa Farm Journal, or the Family Herald and Weekly Star. And I would sit at the long kitchen table, pretending to be drawing in a five-cent scribbler, bought at the Rexall One Cent Sale, and kept for just such an evening pastime. But my eyes would be on Mother. And in the silence of the kitchen, the brothers quietly doing what amused them, and Audrey embroidering, I could actually hear Mother’s pencil, sliding over the page in her diary. It made the faintest of sounds, but on those evenings when Mother’s mind was a million miles away, I was so aware of every move she made at the end of the table. It was at that time that she wrote furiously in her diaries. She sat with her left arm circling her scribbler, and I would see her nod, as if confirming what she was writing, and I could tell when she came to the end of a sentence. She would jab at the paper with the pencil, as if to say, “There now. That’s how I feel.” I longed to see what she had written, but of course, no one was allowed near her scribblers which were kept in the upper shelf of the back-to-the-wall cupboard. That was a sacred place.

At other times I would fall asleep to the click-clack of the old treadle Singer sewing machine when Mother sewed after we had gone to bed. It was a wonderful, soothing sound. But now, the house was quiet. The only sounds came from Father plugging more wood into the stove. We would have said our prayers as usual. And as usual, Mother would put her hand on each head signalling it was time for us to say our own prayer and ask God for special favours. And I would pray for the end of winter. I would pray that before long our evenings would return to happier times, when joy would come from Mother playing the harmonica, as Audrey and I leafed through Eaton’s catalogue. When the days were longer, the snow had left the foundation of the house, and Mother would once again return from wherever she was on those dark and gloomy nights at the end of winter.

y sister Audrey’s voice was stern that night. “I don’t know how often I have to tell you, Mary” she said, wagging a finger under my nose. “It has nothing to do with you. Mother gets like that ever so often. You should be used to it by now.” The issue was Mother’s mood. She had that look about her that gave me knots in the pit of my stomach. But that year winter seemed to go on forever: the snow hadn’t even begun to melt, the Model T was still up on blocks in the drive shed, and Mother seemed more melancholy than usual. As usual, I thought I had done something to upset her, something terrible like forgetting to close my eyes when saying our prayers at her knee at night or not wiping the oilcloth on the kitchen table to her satisfaction after cleaning up after supper. But Audrey said no, I had done nothing to put her in her mood. Once again she told me that this time of year was when Mother most missed her beloved New York. “It happens every year. Don’t you remember? Just when winter is about over.” And I would ask my sister to explain it all to me again. She said

News - The Canadian Cancer Society doled out $1.7 million to three local researchers in a bid to help improve the quality of life for cancer patients. Martin Kabat, CEO of the society, announced the funding at the R.A. Centre on March 25. Kabat said the survivorship rate of cancer patients has steadily risen from 28 per cent in the 1960s to 68 per cent in present day. “When the society began funding research in the 1950s some very important discoveries started to take place,” he said, adding Dr. Robert Noble’s discovery of vinblastine was one of the first major advances in chemotherapy, originating in Canada in 1959. Dr. John Bell, a scientist with the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and University of Ottawa professor, was the largest funding recipient. The $1.2-million, five-year, impact

the society to continue to fund outside-of-the-box research,” Makrigiannis said. “That will help find new avenues and new ideas.” Dr. Sophie Lebel, also from the University of Ottawa, along with her co-investigator Christine Maheu of McGill University in Montreal, received a quality of life grant totalling $300,000. In the next three years they will test whether group therapy can help diminish fears of recurrence in cancer survivors. Maheu said cancer survivors often experience anxiety and fear that the disease will return. This decreases the patient’s ability to make longterm life and health-care decisions. “We hope to improve the quality of life by taking away that fear and anxiety,” Maheu said. “The reason we want to do a group therapy setting is to encourage patients to help each other with their own experiences.” Kabat the grant recipients are chosen through a rigorous process that can include a peer review of the proposal by as many as 25 of their colleagues. He said he is happy to see world-class cancer research continuing in Ottawa. “We know that research is one of the most effective weapons in the fight against this disease,” he said.

grant was given to Bell and his research team for the development of cancer-fighting viruses to target pancreatic cancer. Bell said the society also funds his work through the NCIC Clinical Trials groups in Ottawa, Toronto and Hamilton, Ont. The clinical trials are part a co-operative oncology group which carries out clinical trials in cancer therapy, supportive care and prevention across Canada and internationally. “I am honoured to receive this funding,” Bell said. “My wife and daughter often knock on doors to fundraise for the society so I know how hard the dollars are to come by.” Kabat said one of the reasons the society chose to fund the project is because the society wants a renewed focus on the under-funded and harderto-fight cancers such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal cancers. Dr. Andrew Makrigiannis, working at the University of Ottawa, was given a $185,000 innovation grant to study whether the immune system has a role in breast cancer development. His research will be conducted over the next two years and could lead to new ways in determining the prognosis of breast cancer patients and using the immune system to fight the disease. “I think it’s important for

Clean furnace system at heart of a healthy home

When spring cleaning your home this year, why stop at the surface? A home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system – the ‘heart and lungs’ of a house – is often left forgotten. Keeping the system clean and well-functioning is essential to ensuring the air in your home is healthy and safe. Consider the following: • A dirty furnace is a breeding ground for bacteria. Furnaces are

easy to neglect. Over time, dust and dirt can accumulate in your home’s ducts or air filters, and these dirty filters can become ‘ground zero’ for airborne germs. • Poor ventilation can lead to moisture and the growth of mold. When the air in your home is too humid, fungus and bacteria can start growing and releasing spores into the air.

This can have health consequences for your family – sensitive family members may begin to experience headaches, itchy eyes and irritated skin. • A dirty HVAC system costs more money. If you use a ‘forced-air’ heating system, dirty filters will force the fan to work harder than it needs to. This can put strain on the system, leading to bigger energy bills

and more wear and tear.

Babes4Breasts funds vitamin D cancer research ment and prevention of breast cancer in 76 newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. Funds raised by B4B will be used to augment this research. This novel clinical trial offers solutions and treatments to patients in the often anxious waiting period before surgery, as a “window of opportunity” to not only treat the patient with vitamin D, but also to understand what would make a treatment effective against breast cancer.  In addition, they aim to reduce anxiety and empower women affected by breast cancer through their participation in the discovery of novel treatments. research continues

Research will continue into 2015, at which time molecular studies and gene expression profiling will be completed on the tumour samples of the patients on this study and others that will not only identify the mechanism of vitamin D’s effect but also identify which patients will or will not benefit from vitamin D treatment. It is their hope that a simple yet inexpensive and harmless vitamin, at the proper dose, can play a significant role in the treatment and prevention of breast cancer. The results of this trial will enable us to answer this question and will have enormous impact on breast cancer treatment worldwide. In 2013, through the fundraising campaign, benefit concert in October and Babes4Breasts compilation album sales (which continue through 2014), Babes4Breasts reached an impressive benchmark: $100,000 raised since 2007. Babes4Breasts continues to plan the October benefit concert and compilation album release. Details including lineup, recipient charity and more will be announced later in 2014.

Thursday, May 1st


Community Recently, Babes4Breasts (B4B) donated $19,358.41 to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation, earmarked for the breast cancer research work of the Dr. Angel Arnaout, Dr. Mark Clemons and Dr. Christina Addison team. Funds were raised through the Beau’s 4 Babes at the Royal Oak campaign run in fall of 2013, a lead up to the 7th Annual Babes4Breasts benefit concert.  Support of the community in the form of partnerships with Beau’s Brewery, The Royal Oak, Boom 99.7 and Light Switch Creative saw monies raised through Beau’s beer sales at all Royal Oak locations. Over 16 days, The Royal Oak donated $0.25 from each pint and $0.75 from each 60 oz jug of Beau’s sold at all locations to the cause, with a matching donation from Royal Oak Pubs Group.  In addition, Beau’s Brewery donated 30 per cent from every keg sold to the Royal Oak. Ana Miura, boss babe and founder added, “Babes4Breasts exists from the generosity of many people – from those who purchase a ticket to those who come on as stellar sponsors and true partners. “We are proud to support the goals of the fine team of Dr. Arnaout, Dr. Clemons and Dr. Addison,” she said. Despite advances in treatment, over 4000 Canadians die each year of breast cancer. The Arnaout- Clemons- Addison team is a uniquely innovative program that performs pragmatic patient centred research designed to improve the care of current and future generations of breast cancer patients. This research has already improved the care of many breast cancer patients at the Ottawa hospital. At present the Arnaout-ClemonsAddison team are exploring the role of high dose vitamin D in the treat-

Members of Babes4Breasts and their supporters make a donation to Doctors Mark Clemons, Christina Addison and Angel Arnarout for their research into the effect of high doses of vitamin D on breast cancer.

Tiny trains, big event Ottawa Train Expo attracts exhibitors, patrons from far afield Steph Willems

Community - The appeal of trains amongst children and adults can’t be denied, and it is this life-long fascination with rolling steel that attracts patrons and exhibitors to the Ottawa Train Expo. Now in its third year, the expo – the largest in eastern Canada – will see more than 250 exhibitors on the floor of the Ernst & Young Centre when it opens on April 26. Model railroading is a hobby that combines a passion for railroading along with an appreciation of its history and an attention to detail. Fred Adams, chairman of the expo and its main organizer, said the appeal of model railroading lies in the rekindling of that initial youthful fas-

cination with trains. “Model railroading is very big in Ottawa – we’re one of the larger areas where you have a lot of people doing (this),” said Adams. “The dynamics of it is that children get involved in trains, but then get away from it during their teen years and in adulthood. As guys get into middle age, they start to get more leisure time and think back to childhood – it’s a good hobby to get into.” Putting one model train together from a kit can take weeks, so it’s a time-consuming one as well. Still, many people continue to take to the hobby, so much so that the Ottawa Train Expo had to vacate its previous venue at the Carleton University Fieldhouse for a more accommodating one. “Over the two years we’ve had 8,000 people come through our doors, and we’re hoping for 5,000 this year,” said Adams, adding that exhibitors will be coming to Ottawa from as far away as Manitoba and Oregon. A long list of prizes donated from local businesses will be the subject of a raffle during the two-day show, “That was way to easy!”

with all proceeds going to Roger’s House. A key partner for expo organizers is the Bytown Railway Society, a group that promotes and preserves the history of the railroad in and around Ottawa. Director Les Goodwin said the group, which curates a collection of historic rail equipment housed mainly at the Museum of Science and Technology, will bring some life-sized items to the “miniature” event. Among them will be a restored 1959 Pontiac Hy Rail – a station wagon converted to run on rails. Unfortunately, the group’s 1913 steam train won’t be able to make it into the Ernst & Young Centre. “If we get people involved in model railways, hopefully they’ll progress to the real thing,” said Goodwin. Goodwin said that at one time, 11 different railway companies had lines running into Ottawa. “Unfortunately, most of (the old lines) have disappeared,” he said.

Clean up contest to inspire youth to pitch in This year’s spring event will expand to the streets Michelle Nash

Community - Before residents start picking up garbage this spring in Old Ottawa South, one group would like the neighbourhood children to pick up their crayons. A community colouring contest is being organized by the neighbourhood’s spring cleanup group, the same one that each year for the past 17 years has organized the event. This year, organizer Georgina Hunter wants to help inspire Old Ottawa South children and teens to get involved. “This is an activity that I think is worth making time for,” Hunter said. “I think it teaches really valuable lessons and hopefully it will encourage their kids to participate in the cleanup and raise the awareness on the street.”

The contest offers two age categories for young artists in the neighbourhood: ages six to 12 and ages 13 to 18. The rules are simple: just take a letter-sized sheet of white paper and draw a part of Old Ottawa South in the spring, showing people picking up garbage. The deadline to submit a drawing to Hunter at is April 7. Two winners will be selected from each of the age categories and the drawings will be used to advertise the May 10 spring cleanup event.

“I would like to see many small teams, around four to six people attacking the block, so it’s not onerous.” Hunter added the most important thing about promoting clean streets and attending the event is to enjoy themselves, meet new people and maybe even change the way they deal with garbage while walking, or hanging out in the park for the future. “I am really hoping that parents will take this moment and make it a teachable moment and I hope everyone who participates in the contest come out on the day.”

Bank Street between the bridges, Sunnyside Avenue and Bronson Place will all be getting the attention of the cleanup crews. The meet-up remains at Windsor Park, where Timbits, coffee and supplies will be handed out. Hunter will be recruiting high school students to volunteer, as well as university students to lead clean up groups. “What I have found with the many businesses along Bank Street and shops with takeout - people are eating and walking and leaving behind the fast food containers,” Hunter said.

Splurge IT’S BACK!


Typically, the cleanup would focus on Windsor and Brighton parks, but this year it will go beyond the parks, adding street cleaning to the plans.


P People l tto k know, places l tto lilive & go, things to try, taste or buy!


This Spring be part of our next edition of Splurge, the most talked about coffee table book in The Ottawa area.

Old Ottawa South will host its annual spring cleanup on May 10. Leading up to the event, the community is holding a colouring contest to garner support and interest for the big day.

Aries, despite a full workload, you are already looking ahead to some much-needed rest and relaxation. Focus on what’s on your plate at the moment. Taurus, your personal life follows you to work this week. You can often compartmentalize things, but you are finding it difficult to do that this week. Gemini, information that may alter your future plans is brought to your attention this week. It is not necessarily bad news, but you will need to alter your plans a little. Cancer, financial responsibilities must be a priority this week. Now is the time to make important financial decisions that you have been putting off for several weeks. Your feelings are transparent this week, Leo. You can’t hide much from others, especially your romantic feelings. The person you admire will soon learn of your feelings. Virgo, a lot of drama is going on behind the scenes this week. How much you get involved is entirely up to you. Just be prepared for the consequences.

Libra, you might have to set your personal needs aside this week in order to help a friend out of a difficult situation. You are ready to provide any assistance you can. Responsibility comes naturally to you, Scorpio. However, sometimes you just have to let loose and show off how you are feeling. Others will have a new appreciation for you. You are on the brink of a breakthrough, Sagittarius. You just don’t know when it is coming. Be patient and you will be pleasantly surprised with events that unfold. A serious issue arises this week, Capricorn. You may have avoided addressing this issue in the past, but there is no putting it off now. Approach the issue with an open mind. When an associate presents a problem, you are the perfect one to present a solution, Aquarius. Make the most of this opportunity and others will appreciate your efforts. Responsibilities at work may be a bit overwhelming, Pisces. You are held to a higher standard than others, and now is the time to show why.
