EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kanataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kyle Smendziuk, a fourth-year starter for the Carleton University menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team that has won seven of the past nine national championships, is really what the Ravensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success is all about. No matter how bad they dominate opponents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and how many people talk about this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team possibly being the best edition of the Ravens to date â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the players and their coach always pick out

ďŹ&#x201A;aws in their never-ending quest for perfection. So it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a surprise that after overwhelming the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a team that has enjoyed its fair share of success against the rest of the competition with a 10-5 record â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capital Hoops Classic by a score of 74-34 at Scotiabank Place on Jan. 18, that he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite join in all the fanfare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes the focus is a bit off,â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always about ďŹ nding a new challenge for the team that has almost doubled its opponents point total in 15 victories, and the All Saints Catholic High School grad has found that goal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an undefeated season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never done that before.

May take a while for costs to lower as rates adjust: bureau INSURANCE, from 1

The fixes were announced after 1,500 homes were flooded in the west end in 2009. A number of the projects were completed last year and many more will be finished this year, said Hubley. “We’re on schedule to get everything done,” he said, adding residents should see lower costs when it comes time to renew their policies after all the projects are completed. “Definitely in a year when all the projects wrap up, then the risk will be significantly reduced and people should see that reflected (in their bills),” he said. “They do it based on risk assessment. Now they’ve got the information so they can say not every house in this area has flooded and not every house in this area will flood again.” RATES BASED ON PAST

Pete Karageorgos, manager of consumer and industry relations for the Insurance Bureau of Canada, said the rates are based on past experiences so it may take a while for the infrastructure fixes to be reflected in insurance rates. “Insurance rates going forward look at how much insurers have paid in the past,” said Karageorgos. “Future rates are set on past experience, so

if the future experience continues to improve then rates should follow. “It takes time to see rate movement.” He said there was no “blanket statement” that could be made as to when residents could see a reduction of rates within a certain time period. It’s up to each company to adjust its rates.

“If the future experience continues to improve then rates should follow.” PETE KARAGEORGOS

“It really varies by company because each company operates differently,” he said. As for the meeting itself, Karageorgos said it was a first of its kind. “It’s great to see that the City of Ottawa, and the Kanata area that had experienced significant issues in regards to its infrastructure, started to address those issues,” he said. “It’s a great dialogue that will ultimately help the residents in the future.” He said the meeting was a model other municipalities could benefit from. “This may be a great opportunity for other municipalities to see there are other solutions to these problems,”

said Karageorgos. ASSESS BY STREET

Many homeowners living in a high-risk area have seen a rise in insurance costs, including on premiums, deductibles and some have lost flooding coverage completely. Insurance companies generally choose their rates based on postal codes, so a house that has never flooded, but sits in a high-risk area, has higher costs. This is something Hubley said he hopes to see changed thanks to the information provided to the bureau by the city. “They are moving towards that, where they’re going to be able to assess it down to the street instead of by the postal code,” he said. This should help to ease the costs on homes that have never flooded and those that should not flood again when it comes time for residents to renew their policies, said Hubley. “They told us this was exactly the information that they needed,” he said. This was the first request of its kind the insurance bureau received and a “major milestone” for homeowners, said Hubley. “No other city has sat down and done this with them,” he said. “I think we’ve helped every resident in this area who’s been impacted by this.”

The January meeting hosted a spirited discussion of where the heart of March Rural is located. The community association was torn between Riverfront Park along the 6th Line, and the ice rink baseball ďŹ eld on Riddell Drive behind the Fire Hall. Further suggestions would be most welcome. The association also heard an update on the Kanata North

accommodation review for public schools, an update on the last meeting of the Federation of Citizens Association which reviewed proposed development applications, and had a lovely time brainstorming future events. Winter has ďŹ nally come to the March Rural area and the ice rink is up and ready for skating. It is located behind the Fire Hall on Riddell Drive. The association thanks the dedicated team of volunteers who work hard to provide decent ice for the community.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Seniors are invited to attend a meeting about emergency services at the Queensway Carleton hospital on Feb. 9. The meeting will give attendees the chance to raise concerns, discuss problems they may have encountered in the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency department and offer suggestions as to how the system could be improved. The meeting will be held at the Kanata Seniors Centre, 2500 Campeau Dr., from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Dr. Chris Winkle, vice president of the Queensway Carleton hospital board, approached the Kanata Seniors Council to see if members would be interested hosting an event to discuss any issues and offer solutions about the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was interested in getting our seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; community working with him to see if the present system can be improved and made more

patient-friendly,â&#x20AC;? said Judy Anderson, a long-time Kanata Seniors Council board member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very much aware that there are some really negative experiences out there but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want just to hear about these incidents, he also wants to hear from us seniors as to how things might be improved for both parties â&#x20AC;&#x201C; seniors and the hospital.â&#x20AC;? Anderson admits that she was â&#x20AC;&#x153;surprised and delightedâ&#x20AC;? to be approached by Winkle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows that the hospital is really serious about working for the very large, diverse community of seniors residing in Kanata,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that anybody who has had a bad experience and may have some ideas as to how things could be improved wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose any time in reserving a place so they can be sure of having their say.â&#x20AC;?

OC Transpo backtracks on bus GPS release Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC News – OC Transpo thinks it’s a better idea to make money off live GPS transit data than to release it openly to the public, the city’s transit commission heard at a meeting on Jan. 17. Previously, OC Transpo general manager Alain Mercier promised the bus location information would be released as “open data” when the transit agency could ensure its accuracy through technology upgrades. Despite promising that information would be open to the public as recently at December, Mercier now says he will leave the decision up to the transit commission. The group will be charged with deciding what’s more important: potential advertising revenue from the only mobile app that can show real-time bus loca-

tions, or the city’s commitment to transparency through its open data initiative. An OC Transpo marketing plan says the transit agency could stand to raise $1.1 million by 2014 by leveraging the real-time bus-location data. That dilemma won’t face the commission for another few months (likely in the summer), as OC Transpo awaits information from the market and advertisers about how much transit advertising opportunities – including ads on an app – are worth to them. The loss of potential revenue isn’t the only cost of making the data open, said Robert Delage, an OC Transpo technology manager who explained the issue to transit commissioners. The bus-location information would be the first “live” open data stream the city would provide (all other streams are

static), and there is a cost involved with maintaining that type of information and hosting it, Delage said. Developing an app to interpret the data requires “deep knowledge” of the transit system, Delage said. The city did release a buslocation data briefly during its Apps4Ottawa contest in 2010 and early 2011, and transit apps were very popular: “Where is My Bus?,” an app developed by Nepean resident Jonathan Rudenberg, won the people’s choice award. But some other bus apps didn’t work and left OC Transpo to field calls about the bad information they were putting out to the public, Delage said. But that message from Delage and Mercier came under harsh criticism from some commissioners, including Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson and Beacon HillCyrville Coun. Tim Tierney (the former and current heads of the city’s information technology subcommittee). They decried OC Transpo’s move away from its previous commitment to release the open data and challenged the notion that preventing public access to the information could make the city more money. If the city’s app, which it intends to release before any bus-location data would be

made public if the commission approves, is better than other developer’s apps, it will make more money off advertising, Wilkinson said. Tierney has examined other models, including the system used in Winnipeg, and he said he doesn’t see a correlation between open data and lost revenue. OC Transpo has an advantage because it is in the best position to integrate additional information about bus cancellations and other special messages with the GPS data in its app, so the transit agency already has an advantage that will guarantee it can attract more advertising than other apps, Tierney said. He disagreed with the change in direction he heard from commission chair Coun. Diane Deans (GloucesterSouthgate) and Mercier, and the IT subcommittee chairman said he would not back down on this issue. In the future, Tierney said he would prefer to see another member of the commission’s four-person working group on technology issues deliver updates on that group’s work to the full commission, rather than Deans. Those statements were good news for Open Data Ottawa, an advocacy group that has been pushing for the re-

OC Transpo head Alain Mercier told the transit commission that the city stands to make more money by not releasing bus-location information as open data. lease of bus-location info. Alex Lougheed, the group’s spokesperson, said open data and revenue aren’t mutually exclusive, and he was disappointed to hear the issue framed that way by OC Transpo. He suggested the city could keep more money in its pocket by ditching a plan to develop its own transit app – a costly process – and leave private developers to do that. Opening the data is a great way to increase confidence in the transit system and make it

easier to use, Lougheed said, and that will help OC Transpo achieve its main goal of increasing ridership. In fact, just a 0.5 per cent increase in ridership would generate the same amount of money OC Transpo hoped to raised through monetizing the GPS data, Lougheed claimed. He encouraged anyone who is concerned about this issue to contact their city councillor, transit commissioners and the mayor and make their voices heard.

Hockey Helps the Homeless hits the ice in April Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

DISAPPOINTING

Hockey Helps the Homeless is an annual event played in major cities across Canada that allows hockey enthusiasts to play three games on a team with NHL alumni, such as former Ottawa Senators Laurie Boschman and Brad Marsh.

hook, with interest from both participants and volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The interest is coming in fast and furious now,â&#x20AC;? he said. Dave Edgecomb, a Kanata man, has volunteered to take over as chair of the Ottawa tournament. The tournament will probably ice eight menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams and four co-ed recreational teams, said Scullion, with two former NHL players on each team. It costs $300 per individual or $3,600 for a team to register for the tournament, which pays for a lunch and formal dinner, an NHL-calibre jersey and socks and the opportunity to live a hockey fanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream, said Scullion. Anyone interested in registering for the event or volunteering their time to help on the organizing committee should email gs@ hockeyhelpsthehomeless. com. Players can fundraise using the Hockey Helps the Homeless website: hockeyhelpsthehomeless.com, to cover the entry costs, said Scullion. Participants can also register a team or individual by sending a cheque to Hockey Helps the Homeless, care of Gary Scullion, 7030 Woodbine Ave., Suite 500, Markham, Ont., L3R 6G2 or by registering online at www. hockeyhelpsthehomeless.com For more information call 1-905-943-4250, ext. 3522. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re counting on Ottawa, a great hockey town, to work with us to make a difference in the lives of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless,â&#x20AC;? said Scullion.

EMC News - Hockey Helps the Homeless will host its second-annual charity hockey tournament after the event was almost put on ice due to a lack of community support. Earlier this month, organizers were forced to postpone the annual charity hockey games because of a lack of interest from participants and volunteers. But interest in the Hockey Helps the Homeless tournament in Ottawa has revived ever since the media reported on the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizing problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We actually have an organizing committee of 10 people,â&#x20AC;? said Gary Scullion, executive director of Hockey Helps the Homeless. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unbelievable.â&#x20AC;? The event will be held at the Bell Sensplex on April 20, and organizers hope to raise $150,000 from the event. Former Ottawa Senators Brad Marsh and Laurie Boschman will play in the tournament and are organizing â&#x20AC;&#x153;an outstanding lineupâ&#x20AC;? of NHL alumni to participate in the event, with two NHL alumni per team.

For the price of a $300 registration fee, participants receive a team jersey with their name on the back and an invitation to a dinner and a silent auction. The tournament raises between $150,000 to $200,000 in cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, with 35 per cent of the money used to pay to run the tournament. But Ottawa was a different story, said Scullion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a lot of trouble getting it off the ground in Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? said Scullion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had trouble getting participants for the event.â&#x20AC;? The ďŹ rst event staged in Ottawa only managed to raise $13,000, with the money going to the Ottawa Mission; money used for renovations at its Waller Street shelter. The event also had trouble putting together a volunteer organizing committee, leaving one of the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-time employees the task of running most of the event. Two years later the charity again had trouble attracting volunteers to help run the charity tournament. Last August, only one prospective volunteer showed up for the kick-off meeting for Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hockey Helps the Homeless tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was quite disappointing,â&#x20AC;? said Scullion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were thinking of postponing or cancelling it. We just wanted to regroup.â&#x20AC;? But ever since news of the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizing problems was made public, Scullionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone has been ringing off the

Bus data suddenly top secret The writing has been on the walls for months, but the powers that be at OC Transpo made it ofďŹ cial last week: the transit authority thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad idea to give citizens direct access to information about where their buses are. The new attitude ďŹ&#x201A;ies in the face of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively new and progressive policy on â&#x20AC;&#x153;open dataâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; streams of information about city services and infrastructure that can be used to power mobile and computer applications

(â&#x20AC;&#x153;appsâ&#x20AC;?) to give people easy ways to make that data useful for taxpayers. There are data sets on child-care facilities, drinking water quality, the cycling network, park locations and much more. But not GPS location data from OC Transpo buses. That is, unless members of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transit commission stand up to chair Diane Deans and OC Transpo general manager Alain Mercierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims that the information

needs to be kept for the transit authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exclusive use in order to make it valuable to advertisers. OC Transpoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business and marketing plan claims the possibility of $1.1 million in new ad revenue in the bus location information, presumably from advertising on a mobile-phone app and from ads displayed on screens with updated bus arrival times at stations. But Mercier says that amount of dough would only ďŹ&#x201A;ow in if OC Transpo was the

sole source of real-time information about where buses are. The problem is experts on transit data and how other big cities use it say that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case. In fact, Open Data Ottawa says the city could probably make more revenue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and save money â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by avoiding the expense of creating its own app. If the data is openly available, private developers would ďŹ nd a way to make it useful to

riders at no cost to the city. It has already been done â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the most popular app in a cityrun contest was Where is My Bus? Offering the information needed to create tools to make transit easier to use can also pay off by increasing trust and conďŹ dence in the system, and that in turn increases ridership and revenue. But beyond the common sense of making the information public, and beyond the fact that many major cities have already demonstrated that this is the best practice, the city made a promise to share the data. City council made a com-

mitment to a new era of transparency at city hall, and a large part of that has been a stronger focus on open data. And Mercier himself committed publicly and directly to app developers that he would make the bus GPS data available. Where OC Transpo and the city had an opportunity to increase public goodwill in a maligned post-â&#x20AC;&#x153;route optimizationâ&#x20AC;? period, it has instead set the stage to alienate the very people who clamour to help people use the transit system more easily. The transit commissioners shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let OC Transpo get away with it.

Betting against a casino in Toronto CHARLES GORDON Funny Town All of us who live in and around Ottawa have only the fondest feelings for Toronto and want it to prosper and be recognized internationally for the exceptional city that it is. It is much easier for us to have these fond feelings after our hockey team has defeated theirs. Right now, Toronto has another opportunity to stand out and be recognized as distinctive and wonderful. It can do this by refusing to build a casino. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is reported to be about to recommend a casino for Toronto, perhaps at Ontario Place. The mayor is said to be favourably disposed to the idea. Some city councillors are positively drooling. A bit of opposition to the idea has been voiced, notably by the Conservative leader, Tim Hudak, but it based mostly inefďŹ ciencies in the lottery corporation and the new casinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact on casinos in smaller Ontario communities, such as Niagara Falls and Windsor. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see too many people objecting to the principle of the thing. Perhaps weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been living with casinos for too long. People can get used to anything after awhile, even a bad smell. You can see where Toronto would be sorely tempted to go for the casino. Casinos are reputed to attract tourists, even though they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always do so. In border towns, with a weak Canadian dollar, they worked OK. Not so much now. Perhaps a more important appeal of the casino has to do with the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation. Toronto has always wanted to be considered world class and people with not quite as much imagination as they should have think that the way to be world class is to have what every other city in the world does.

When, in fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the opposite. The urgency of not building a casino is underscored by the fact that casinos are not very helpful institutions. They take money out of the hands of people who should really be doing something else with it. They contribute to the growth of gambling addiction, a serious problem in our society. Among those most affected by gambling addiction are governments, who have come to depend on the revenue generated by casinos as a sneaky form of taxation. Rather than an honest tax, openly levied on the basis of peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to pay or their retail purchases, it is a disguised tax, based on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desperation. You would not know this from the way casinos are promoted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with pictures of elegant men in dinner jackets and women in evening dresses out for a sophisticated night on the town, sipping cocktails beside a roulette table and laughing. Those people, in the imagination of casino supporters, spend lots of money shopping and dining and staying over and helping to stimulate the local economy. In reality, the men and women are wearing parkas and glumly feeding loonies into machines until they get back on the bus and go home, contributing nothing to the local economy except perhaps for those engaged in addiction control. Toronto could look at Thunder Bay, which put a casino into its downtown in the hopes of saving it, which it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Toronto could look at Hull, now Gatineau, where the casino sucked the life out of the downtown at night. Toronto doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a casino to attract tourists or entertain its own people. It has professional baseball and hockey and basketball and theatre and museums and nifty neighborhoods. Some day it may even have a decent harbourfront (not that we in Ottawa should talk). Therefore, if Toronto is wise, it could brag: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look, our city is so world class that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even need a casino!â&#x20AC;? With any luck, other cities all over the globe would begin demolishing theirs, to be like Toronto. What a world-class world that would be.

A.Y. Jackson students raise funds for children with HIV/AIDS in Kenya

Submitted photo

A.Y. Jackson Secondary School international business students Shereemer Chevannes, left, and Ruslana Malytska emceed the Gala Dinner and Silent Auction for Kenya on Jan. 16.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Students at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School raised over $2,000 at their annual fundraiser event for Kenya. Twenty-nine students in the Grade 12 international business class partnered with Community Education Services Canada and Community Education Services Kenya to raise the funds during their Gala Dinner and Silent Auction for Kenya on Jan. 16 at the Kanata Holiday Inn & Suites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students have come together and created an event that promotes awareness and encourages people to take action â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to make a difference, one person at a time,â&#x20AC;? said teacher Mark Hoogenraad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great experience; our students did a great job.â&#x20AC;? All the money raised from the event goes directly to Community Education Services Canada, which is partnered with its Kenya counterpart, to provide access to education for orphans and other children with HIV/AIDS living in Kenya. The Grade 12 students worked extremely hard to ensure the event was a success, said Hoogenraad, because â&#x20AC;&#x153;every dollar raised will make a signiďŹ cant difference in the

lives of their peers in Kenya.â&#x20AC;? The A.Y. Jackson Glee Club entertained the crowd during the evening, while Dr. Charles Mayenga, director of Community Education Services Canada, who recently returned from Kenya, was the keynote speaker at the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was very informative,â&#x20AC;? said Hoogenraad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had lots of knowledge to bring about his organization.â&#x20AC;? In the current decade, HIV/ AIDS will kill more people than all the wars and disasters in the past 50 years combined and more than 40 million people are infected with the disease, said the school board in a news release. Community Education Services Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate is to build public awareness around the issues surrounding HIV/ AIDS.

Woman suffers burn to hand in house fire Fire department seeks Kourier-Standard staff

EMC News - One female resident suffered a burn to her hand after a fire started in the living room of a home on Margaret Anne Drive.

Firefighters responded to the call for the home, located off March Road between Kanata and Carp, just after 5 p.m. on Jan. 19, for a fire that started near a woodstove.

The woman was the only one home at the time of the fire. She was assessed by paramedics for the burn, said the fire department. The fire was under control

by 5:30 p.m. The two-storey house suffered around $10,000 in damages due to smoke. The cause of the fire was accidental, said the fire department.

scrap vehicle donations Ottawa Fire Services

EMC News – Ottawa Fire Services (OFS) is encouraging residents to donate their

%&'+#(-*.(-

old or scrap vehicles to the Vehicle Donation Program. A donation can help firefighters continuously practice their skills and rescue techniques, and donors will receive a $500 tax receipt in return. Even if the vehicle doesn’t run, it can still be used and OFS will arrange to have it picked up for free. Donated vehicles will be used for training that will help firefighters practice the skill of automobile extrication. Every year, OFS responds to thousands of traffic collisions that involve extricating injured drivers and passengers from mangled vehicles using specialized techniques and tools. As part of the OFS training program, firefighters hone their skills on vehicles that are obtained or donated from recyclers, which often includes high towing fees. To offset these costs, old or scrap vehicles can be donated directly to Ottawa Fire Services in exchange for a $500 tax receipt that will be mailed to the donor. For more information, first call 613-580-2424, ext. 29492 to receive instructions about how to donate a vehicle.

Chewing gum a filthy habit according to Miss Crosby Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories BY MARY COOK

The prayer was over, and as luck would have it, she called out Hermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. He either forgot about the gum on his leg, or he ďŹ gured it was too late to do anything about it. By now it was pretty well anchored to his overall just above his knee. Of course, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take Miss Crosby more than a split second to spot the gum. She let a roar out of her that could be heard in Douglas and demanded to know where the gum came from. Well, if nothing else, Two Mile Herman was a quick thinker. He

looked down at his leg as if he had never laid eyes on it before. The teacher ordered him out into the cloak room, which wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really a room at all, just a partition separating the school room from the doorway. He was made to take off his overalls, and Miss Crosby followed him with the scissors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, scrape it off,â&#x20AC;? she bellowed. None of us dared turn around in our seats to watch the performance, but we knew he would be out there standing in his long under-

wear. My sister Audrey, in Senior Fourth, wondered if Miss Crosby was more mad about the gum, or over wasting most of the morning. At any rate, Two Mile Herman emerged eventually with his overalls back on, and the gum was gone. Audrey said Miss Crosby was too worn out to administer the strap, and eventually, the school room returned to normal. Then it was time for recess. Of course, we all headed back to the cloak room to get our coats. Two Mile Herman was the ďŹ rst to grab his off a hook. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe my eyes. He had stashed his wad of gum on the underpart of the board that held the hooks, and when he left the school to play outside, the gum was back in his mouth, swishing around as if it had never left it.

To Call or Not to Call? Since introducing the column a few months ago and adding a new email address for general inquiries and questions on our web site we have heard from many community members. The overarching concern for many seems to be the uncertainty of whether calling the CAS is the right thing to do when there is a concern for a child. Some of you have had a hunch, some of you have witnessed ďŹ rst-hand the abusive treatment of a child or youth, but all of you report that making that phone call is an extremely difďŹ cult decision to make. Identifying child abuse for the untrained eye can be difďŹ cult. However, we all have a sense of when things just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel right. What are the signs that cause someone to be concerned for a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety and well-being? Often times indicators of abuse are as subtle as seeing a child consistently inappropriately dressed on cold winter days, or noticing a young child who seems to be left alone after school. These are the times when ascertaining whether or not to call the CAS is challenging. Unfortunately, the fears of being wrong or of meddling in affairs that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t our own seem to be large inďŹ&#x201A;uencers in swaying people into looking the other way. The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telephone intake team are experienced in receiving information from concerned community members. They ask questions of the callers to help determine if the concern is a matter that warrants the involvement of the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society. Over the course of a year, the CAS receives over 25,000 calls, and a large number of those calls are simply questions from concerned community members for our intake workers. We call them consultations. Some of these calls are made anonymously. Not every call is investigated, and perhaps after gathering information that is provided to us all that a family needs is to be connected to appropriate services within the community. However, in some cases, it is that tiny bit of inconspicuous information, based on small observations and a gut feeling that something just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right, that helps paint a picture of an unsafe, unhealthy, or abusive family environment in the home. It is important for the community to know that the role of the CAS is not only to investigate reports of abuse and to assess and intervene when necessary. The CAS can also provide education and supports to families in the city who are unsure where to turn for assistance. It is far better to call the CAS and be wrong about your suspicions than to not call and potentially leave a child at risk of harm.

EMC Lifestyle - Gum was forbidden by Miss Crosby. Not only in the Northcote School, but within a country mile of the school yard! Chewing gum was right up there with swearing or telling a lie, both of which could earn you a good strapping if caught. Miss Crosby called chewing gum a â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ lthy habit.â&#x20AC;? Now, Two Mile Herman didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay much attention to the rules at the Northcote School. Oh, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really swear...sometimes he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;darnâ&#x20AC;?, and he only lied if it was absolutely necessary. But he was known to talk out loud after we were in our seats, which was forbidden, and it took him forever to get down to work after prayers and singing God Save the King, both of which he was known to ignore taking part in. Two Mile Herman loved gum. Wrigleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s came in sticks in green wrappers, and it was rumoured that Two Mile Herman spent every cent on gum at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store that ever came his way. He was known to cram three or four sticks in his mouth at one time. And he chewed it with his mouth wide open, so you could always see a big wad of Wrigleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swishing around his teeth. It was a cold winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day when the whole subject of Two Mile Hermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of gum caused such an uproar at the Northcote School, that it was forever after known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;day Two Mile Herman got caught with his pants down.â&#x20AC;? You could ďŹ nd wads of gum all over the school that Two Mile stashed for later chewing. If he had to get rid of it in a hurry, he could poke it into the door jam, under a window sill where no one could see it, and Cecil said he knew for a fact there was enough gum under Two Mileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat and desk to ďŹ ll a milk can. Of course, he could retrieve it too. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beyond him, on his way out the door, to be seen, without even looking at it, to reach out and grab the wad he had placed there an hour or so before. He never lost track of where he had stuck the last mouthful. Well, one day, it was if he had taken leave of his senses. He was rolling a big lump of gum around in his mouth when Miss Crosby had ordered us to our seats for morning prayer. I heard Cecil whisper loud enough that he could be heard two rows over... â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two Mileâ&#x20AC;Ś your gum.â&#x20AC;? I saw Two Mile put three ďŹ ngers in his mouth, grab the gum, and press it onto the leg of his overalls. It was the custom at the Northcote School, for Miss Crosby to ask one of the pupils to come forward and lead in singing God Save the King.

Tips make working in the kitchen easier

%&'+#(-'&'+

“I Am Your Children’s Aid.”

EMC Lifestyle - When you dice or chop vegetables such as onion, peppers or potatoes on a cutting board, it can sometimes be a challenge to transfer small pieces to a measuring cup or saucepan without spilling them. The next time you have to do this, use an egg flipper. Slip it under the chopped vegetables, and you’ll be able to lift even the smallest pieces without any spills. This also works well when you need to transfer chopped nuts from the cutting board. If you’ve ever poured a chunky soup from a pot to a bowl or storage container, you know that it often splashes over everything nearby -you, the stove and the kitchen counter. This happens because the liquid always goes into your container first, followed by the chunks that splash into the liquid. A simple solution is to turn a soup ladle upside down in the container before you start pouring. Pour the soup over the back of the ladle. This breaks up the flow of chunks so they are less likely to splash into the liquid. If you have a bread machine or buy unsliced bread, it can be tricky to slice the last

Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

part of the loaf. When the bread reaches that point, place what’s left flat on the counter or cutting board. Cut the loaf in two so that, instead of being full height, each portion is half the height of the full loaf. The last of the bread will be much easier and safer to slice. Most automatic dishwasher instructions tell you to run water in the nearest tap until it’s hot, then to start up the dishwasher. If you have dishes that, for one reason or another, have to be washed by hand, run the water for them into the nearest sink first. You’ll have hot water for washing the special dishes as well as hot water ready for the dishwasher. Here’s another way to use less hot water. When you wash dishes and pots by hand, you probably rinse them with hot water. Before you start, run only enough hot water to fill the sink 3-4” deep. As you wash

the dishes, rinse them under hot water and let that water run into your washing water. Your sink will gradually fill with hot water, and you’ll have enough to wash the large pots and pans at the end. If you want to make a quick cup of rich-tasting hot chocolate, pour 1% milk into a microwave-safe container or mug. Microwave on High for 1 minute and 30 seconds (for an 1100 watt oven) or 1 minute and 50 seconds (for a lower watt oven). Watch carefully near the end of the time. If the milk starts to boil, turn off the oven immediately, or the liquid will boil over. To the hot milk, add 1 heaping teaspoon of instant hot chocolate mix and 1 heaping teaspoon of coffee creamer. Stir, or whisk until dissolved. Marshmallows are optional. For adults, stir in 1/2-1 tsp. of Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur.

EMC News – Cycling in the community is set to get easier with the addition of bike lanes along Terry Fox Drive to the Trans Canada Trail in Kanata south. The bike lanes were set to extend from Fernbank Road to Terry Fox and end at Cope Drive, but Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said he

managed to have the cycling lane extended to the trail. “We were told it wouldn’t be likely done,” said the councillor on Jan. 19. “We decided to push; sure enough folks were cooperative.” The extension of the bike lane to the Trans Canada Trail will make it easier on cyclists who bike around the community and the City of Ottawa. “There’s a higher level of

risk for the cyclists so we’re addressing that,” said Hubley. “Cyclists can use that for a quicker commute and a safer commute. “We’re always looking for where we can insert a new bike lane or a pathway to make it easier for people to get around walking or biking.” The councillor said the work is set to start this coming spring, hopefully by May 15.

“It usually depends on the weather,” he said. “If we get an early spring and everything’s thawed out then we could get an earlier start. “We want it ready for cyclists to use by sometime this cycling season.” Aside from the bike lane extension, road modifications in the area include adding a traffic light at Terry Fox and Cope, said Hubley.

EMC News Ottawa is set to promote its ďŹ rst police chief from within its ranks in a dozen years. During a meeting on Jan, 23, police services board members agreed that limiting the search for Vern Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s replacement to members of the Ottawa Police Service is the best plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They, like me, feel the service is more than ever able to pick the chief within the organization,â&#x20AC;? said Eli ElChantiry, head of the police

services board and councillor for West Carleton-March. The position of chief will be vacated on Feb. 20, when White will take over a seat in the Senate. A national search would take around three months, ElChantiry said, and that would require the appointment of an interim chief who would not be a candidate for the chiefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position. But even limiting the search to an internal candidate will necessitate the appointment of an interim chief, because the board doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate being able to choose a new chief by the Feb. 20 deadline, El-Chantiry said. The last chief to have been promoted from within the forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranks was Brian Ford, who served as chief from 1993 to 2000. During its meeting on Jan. 23, the police services board could have voted to limit the search to the two deputy chiefs, to all internal candidates, or whether to look outside the force for a new chief. In the end, during a closeddoor session, the board chose to leave the competition open to all candidates within the police force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very pleased to know we went internally,â&#x20AC;? El-Chantiry said. That will ensure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fair process, El-Chantiry said. He said he has no favourite candidates at this time, but he could envision approximately two or three people applying for the job. As to whether the board is concerned about criticism that it should have sought the best candidate from a wider,

El-Chantiry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get to choose, not just from one or two, but we have quite a few of them.â&#x20AC;? Two of the top candidates are the deputy chiefs, Chuck Bordeleau and Gilles Larochelle.

They are very different in many ways, but they are also very similar when it comes to leadership,â&#x20AC;? adding that he thinks either one would make a good chief, either in Ottawa or another municipality. There are no legal requirements to publically post the position â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ďŹ nal authority rests with the police board to choose whoever the members prefer, El-Chantiry said.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ontario Early Years Centre in Carp is desperate for volunteers. The drop-in program for young children and their parents and caregivers at the Carp Memorial Hall is currently staffed by one community resource member. The centre is looking for volunteers who could donate some time on Tuesdays and Thursdays, said Laine Johnson, the volunteer resources co-ordinator for the resource centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just to have someone to ease everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience in stafďŹ ng it and to keep the program runningâ&#x20AC;Ś I would be in dream land if I could ďŹ nd a permanent person,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson. The centre was bustling with children and their parents and caregivers on Thursday, Jan. 19. Children played with toys and puzzles, glued sparkly cutouts on paper plate masks and rolled Play-Doh into shapes. Moms, dads and caregivers watched over their charges while catching up with friends. Teresa Bellomo said the program means a lot to her and her daughters, Grace, 20 months, and Fiona, 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small town,â&#x20AC;? said Bellomo, who lives in rural Kanata. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids get to know each other; the moms get to know each other.â&#x20AC;? Jill VandenEykel has been attending the drop in for four years, ďŹ rst with her son who is now in school, and now with her daughter Allie, 19 months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She gets to play with other kids her age,â&#x20AC;? said VandenEykel, who lives in Kanata north.

HIGH ATTENDANCE

The drop-in program, which is open to children from infancy to age 6, has a very high attendance rate, with about 25 or more children attending on Tuesdays and anywhere from 17 children and above dropping in on Thursdays, said Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My perfect world is to ďŹ nd that perfect individual who can assist one day a week,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By having the volunteersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; support it frees up the WOCRC team.â&#x20AC;? The drop-in centre, which has been operating for 22

years in the West Carleton area, offers activities and free play for children including arts and crafts, games, songs and stories. Some of the duties of a volunteer would be to help set up and clean up after activities and interact with the children from about 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Volunteers would receive training onsite, said Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just someone who has a commitment to children and volunteering,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be grateful for anyone who felt they had a like-minded interest.

Sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores is one of the most popular desserts enjoyed around the campďŹ re and at cookouts. Now you can enjoy the ďŹ&#x201A;avor of this delectable dessert without the fuss of toasting marshmallows over an open ďŹ&#x201A;ame. Sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores history dates back to the early 20th century. While the actual recipe origin is unknown -- considering most camping recipes were passed down from generation to generation -- the ďŹ rst printed recipe for sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores appeared in 1927 in the Girl Scout Handbook. Sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores were popular campside treats because of the portability of ingredients. It was easy to pack a bag of marshmallows, a box of graham crackers and a few bars of chocolate. The combination of sticky marshmallow, smooth, rich chocolate and crunchy graham crackers provides a perfect melding of ďŹ&#x201A;avors. However, sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the ďŹ rst pairing of these ingredients. Mallomar cookies and Moonpies also featured these ideal components.

To make a delicious dessert that builds upon the sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores ďŹ&#x201A;avors and theme at your next summertime event, try this recipe for Frozen Sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores Cake. Frozen Sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores Cake 1 quart vanilla ice cream 1 quart chocolate ice cream 10 or 12 graham cracker squares 1/4 cup melted butter 1/2 tablespoon sugar 1 jar of hot fudge 1 bag mini-marshmallows 2 tablespoons water Vegetable shortening Crush graham crackers in a zipper-lock bag or pulse in a food processor until made into crumbs. Add sugar and melted butter to the crumbs, mix and press into the bottom of a spring-form pan. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes, or until the crust browns a bit. Soften ice cream by letting it sit out of the freezer for a few minutes. Use a spatula or spoon to spread the chocolate ice cream over the cooled

graham cracker crust. Spread desired amount of fudge topping over the chocolate ice cream. Then spread the softened vanilla ice cream over the fudge layer. Coat a microwave-safe bowl with a thin layer of shortening. Add most of the marshmallows, reserving a few for garnish, and the water to the bowl. Microwave for about a minute to a minute and a half until the marshmallows are melted. Top the vanilla ice cream with the melted marshmallows. Place the cake in the freezer overnight to harden. When ready to serve, place the garnish marshmallows on top and drizzle with a little melted hot fudge. You can use a kitchen torch or a barbecue lighter to add a little browning to the garnish marshmallows to make them look like they were toasted over a ďŹ re. Slice and enjoy quickly before it melts. This cake also makes a great alternative to a store-bought ice cream birthday cake.

example, many private day care organizations open up their doors to campers for the summer. They may set a limit on age. Also, churches, synagogues and other houses of worship may offer a summer recreation program. If you are a parishioner you might be eligible for a discounted rate. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to check out the YMCA or other clubs in the area. They typically offer a summer program. Some places offer payment plans to spread out the ďŹ nancial responsibility, while others may offer scholarships based on ďŹ nancial need. Find out if your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elementary school has a program for the summer. Some may offer crafts, sports and other activities for a few hours during the day. This is a beneďŹ t to parents who have to work and cannot have their children home alone each day. Bus service may be available.

Not every family can afford summer camp or chooses to have their children attend. But faced with two long months of vacation from school, what options are there for keeping children occupied during the lazy days of summer? A top-run, private, sleepaway camp can cost around $10,000 for the season. In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tight economic climate, many families are choosing to scale back expenses, and that includes pricey summer camp. However, just because cost is a factor, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that children canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend camp this season. Parents simply need to do their research or come up with other creative alternatives. First, investigate the opportunities in your area. Summer camp doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to mean eight weeks of recreation in the middle of the wilderness. There may be locally run businesses that also offer summer programs. For

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve exhausted other options, get creative. If you have a number of reliable friends or neighbors, you can set up a camp rotation. Each member of the camp group will be responsible for the kids on a particular day. The responsibilities rotate among the other parents. This enables free time for adults during the summer, and the potential to stagger work schedules and accommodate children being out of school. Older adults, such as grandparents or other relatives, also may be able to assist in â&#x20AC;&#x153;campâ&#x20AC;? duties during the summer. Children, students and seniors often have a reduced admission rate to museums. Spending time together will help generations bond. If you missed the registration deadline for summer camp or simply cannot afford it this year, there are other alternatives to keep children engaged during the vacation months.

I Love to Play Hockey is designed for children ages 10 to 15 years and provides them with skates, a hockey helmet, hockey gloves, hockey stick, a jersey and a series of lessons over four weeks on outdoor rinks, followed by a fun wrapup tournament. This hockey program builds on the existing I Love to Skate program, which equips children ages 6 to 12 with skates and skating lessons. Participants were identiďŹ ed for the program by local community associations representing priority communities in Ottawa. The city is providing the coaches, the ice-time on outdoor rinks, the programming and facilitates the partnerships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing sports is part of an active lifestyle and by giving these children the opportunity to learn how to play hockey, we are giving them the tools to build the foundation for a healthy future,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Mark Taylor, chair of the community and protective services committee. Additional funds were provided by the Leighton family, who chose Jumpstart as a recipient for donations made in Ericâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enroll their children in sport and recreation activities because of ďŹ nancial barriers,â&#x20AC;? said Marc Wolvin, Canadian Tire Jumpstart regional manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are dedicated to removing those barriers, by equipping kids not only for sports, but also for life.â&#x20AC;? I Love to Play Hockey is in memory of Eric Leighton, 18, an avid hockey player who also raised money to help less fortunate children play sports. Eric died on May 26, 2011 as a result of injuries from an explosion in an automotive shop class at Mother Teresa Catholic High School. Through the I Love to Play Hockey program, Ericâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory lives on in the children and youth who are now playing the sport.

Waste Management of Canada Corporation Environmental Assessment for a New Landfill Footprint at the West Carleton Environmental Centre OPEN HOUSE #4 Waste Management of Canada Corporation (WM) is undertaking an Environmental Assessment (EA) seeking approval for a new landfill footprint at the existing Ottawa Waste Management Facility (Ottawa WMF). The new landfill footprint will be one component of the proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre (WCEC).

The proposed WCEC will be an integrated waste management facility that will include: • A new landfill footprint; • Waste diversion and recycling operations; • Composting operations; • Renewable energy facilities; and, • Recreational lands for community uses.

During the 2011 Bell Capital Cup the Kanata Kapitals atom A house team competed in the Power Play Challenge and came out on top with the highest amount of goals in their division. The team of three consisted of Ewan Munro, left, Connor Gilchrist, centre, and Eric MacDonell.

Paul. A. Niebergall Solicitor / Avocat

In November 2011, WM held a series of Open Houses and a Workshop with the public to review the final Existing Conditions, present the assessment and comparative evaluation of the Alternative Landfill Footprints, identify the Preferred Landfill Footprint, and present the five proposed Leachate Treatment Alternatives.

Ontario / Quebec 34 Halldorson Crescent, Kanata, ON K2K 2C7 613-592-5748 tel. 613-232-9654 fax.

Open House #4 The purpose of Open House #4 is to provide the public with an opportunity to review the Detailed Impact Assessment for the Preferred Landfill Footprint as well as the Comparative Evaluation of Leachate Treatment Alternatives and selection of a Preferred Alternative. In addition, WM will provide information about the ongoing EA process and related consultation activities.

The new landfill footprint is the only component of the WCEC that requires EA approval under the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). The proposed location of the WCEC and the new landfill footprint component is within the City of Ottawa in the area shown on the map below. The purpose of the EA is to study the potential environmental effects (positive or negative) of the proposed new landfill footprint. Key components of an EA include consultation with government agencies and the public; consideration and evaluation of alternatives; and the management of potential environmental effects. Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about a proposal.

City to launch rent relief to help people stay in their homes Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

A program to supplement struggling peoples’ rent is finally getting underway. The program, which is set to help 180 households a year, was part of the city’s new $14million commitment to housing and alleviating homelessness made last year, but the supplements were held up as city staff struggled to get the province to sign off on the program. The program will provide $250 per month to 180 individ-

uals at immediate and temporary risk of losing their current accommodations, plus $50 for each additional member of the household. There will also be monthly allowances of $250 for 20 homeless people. The rent-supplement program is part of the city’s multipronged approached under the $14-million fund. Handing an allowance to people in a temporary financial pinch is cheaper for the city to administrate and contributes to “mixed neighbourhoods” with residents from different in-

come levels and backgrounds, staff said. The city’s community and protective services committee approved the terms of reference for how the program will operate during a Jan. 18 meeting. “This is going to make a definitive difference for a lot of folks who are living on the thin razor’s edge of being able to make it every month or not,” said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who heads the committee. Helping families and individuals with a temporary

boost as they get back on their feet can prevent them from becoming homeless, which is not only a bad situation for the families themselves, but also for the city and province, because they then become more of a burden on social-assistance programs. Rent supplements are also one of the few affordable housing strategies that can benefit people in all areas of the city, including rural areas. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, a member of the city’s community and protective services committee, said the supplement program casts a wider net for citizens from all areas of the city who face housing insecurity. “We have to … think big. Think bigger than the core of the city,” El-Chantiry said. “There are rural residents … they could stay in their own

house, their own farms, and she or he needs a little bit of help to stay at home. But if you don’t give them that little bit of help, sometimes you’re forcing him to leave the home and become a bigger picture in the social system.” El-Chantiry charged staff with ensuring the program would be well publicized in communities throughout the city, not only through socialservice agencies, but also other community groups including churches. Since the program is meant to target people who are having temporary financial struggles, the people who would benefit from it the most may not be visiting social-service agencies and therefore may never find out about the rent supplements. There are already 350 households in Ottawa ben-

efitting from a provincial rent supplement program that will expire in March of 2013 and the city has about a million dollars in a fund to help alleviate the impact of that program ending, city staff told the committee. A rent supplement is paid directly to the individual who benefits from it, not to the landlord, as rent subsidies are paid. Because of that, there is a monthly tracking process to ensure the household is still eligible. In order to be eligible, individuals need to be at least 16 years old and legal residents of Canada. Their annual income must not be more than Statistics Canada’s “before-tax low” and they cannot be living in rent geared to income housing.

AND AREA 2012 COMMUNITY RESOURCE GUIDE

This week I received data related to the services provided by the By-Law and Regulatory Services Branch in 2011 for Kanata South and City-wide. Last year, I worked with By-Law and Police to create a strong presence on a number of issues in the ward and I believe the results speak for themselves. I want to thank the community for a double digit decrease in graffiti complaints; I hope in 2012 the community stays vigilant in reporting any graffiti in the area. There was a 10 per cent increase in signs complaints; this can to be attributed to increased public awareness and a dedicated team of officers handling sign enforcement. I want to thank everyone who reported any damage because it has made a noticeable difference in keeping Kanata South the beautiful community it is. Noise complaints were significantly down in 2011 as early last year I worked with By-Law and the Police to ensure that there was a strong enforcement plan for chronic offenders.

Upcoming events I am working on planning a number of exciting community events in the coming months and I hope you mark these dates on your calendar as everyone is welcome: - Feb. 20: Free Family Day Skate hosted by Councillor Allan Hubley and MPP Jack MacLaren at the Jack Charron Arena 10 a.m. to noon - Feb. 25: Meet and Greet Breakfast with special guests at Don Cherry’s 320 Eagleson Rd (Tickets at the door) - March 7: Free International Women’s Day Celebration at the KRC

Successful meeting with insurance representatives This week was a big win for Kanata South residents as I was able to bring together key representatives from the insurance industry to highlight the progress we have made with the West-End Flooding Investigation Action Plan. At the meeting, City staff showcased the accomplishments the City has achieved to reduce the risk of flooding in the west-end and in particular Kanata South to representatives of the Insurance Bureau of Canada. The response from a number of participants was that this was exactly the information they needed to hear and it helps them to do their job better. I would like to thank City of Ottawa’s Dixon Weir, Alain Gonthier and Eric Tousignant and their staff for all of their efforts that led us to this vital meeting. As well, I would like to thank Robert Tremblay Director of Research and Marc Lefebvre, Underwriting Coordinator at IBC for all of their efforts in helping to arrange the attendance of key representatives from the insurance industry for these discussions. Armed with this information I now hope that the insurance companies can more accurately assess the risk of flooding in my ward and recognize the comprehensive plans to protect our residents and their policy holders.

Alain Chamis, Larraine Gorman and Barbara Kobolak will all take to the stage for Kanata Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rendition of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pack of Lies,â&#x20AC;? which runs from Feb. 7 to 18.

Kanata Theatre delivers Pack of Lies Susan Monaghan and Jim Holmes Kanata Theatre

EMC Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Kanata Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pack of Lies,â&#x20AC;? is a slice of recent history. Based on the real-life story of the Portland, U.K, spy ring run by Peter and Helen Kroger, and Gordon Lonsdale and others, the play deals with the effect of the ring on neighbours of the Krogers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; identiďŹ ed in the play as Barbara and Bob Jackson.

Five members of the Portland Ring were arrested in 1961. The Krogers and Lonsdale were tried and sentenced to long prison terms but all were later exchanged for British nationals held by the Soviet Union. In the foreword to his play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pack of Lies,â&#x20AC;? author Hugh Whitemore asks some challenging questions, questions that haunted him in the 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when he penned his disturbing script.

The play is inspired by the true story of Helen and Peter Kroger, found guilty in 1961 in England of spying for the Russians. The story draws from real events, including accounts from a friend who was a neighbor to the real Krogers and who played a key role in their capture. In â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pack of Lies,â&#x20AC;? mild mannered English neighbors Bob and Barbara Jackson, along with their rebellious teenage daughter Julie, have

grown to know and love their neighbors, the boisterous Krogers, and are then caught up in an MI5 plot to spy on their friends. Fear turns to anguish as the hapless Jacksons see their house invaded and their daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedroom converted into a spying nest to track the Krogers every move. The Jacksons strain to believe in their ďŹ ve-year friendship as evidence mounts to the contrary. The script of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pack of Liesâ&#x20AC;? couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resonate more with director Bev Brooks, originally from England herself. She professes to have no problem relating to the paranoia that occurs when the police try to recruit an ordinary citizen as a pawn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This actually happened to me in 1982, when I ďŹ rst arrived in Canada and was teaching English as a second language at an international school,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had got along very well with all the students, including a nice Russian man, who was the third secretary of the Consulate here in Ottawa. After many friendly conversations I decided I wanted to invite this man and his wife to my place for dinner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He warned that that might create problems for me, but living in a free society I insisted that he come, and even went along with his request that I park my car behind his in my driveway, in order to avoid anyone spotting his diplomat license plates,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was after that evening that I was visited by the RCMP. It was a real good cop, bad cop scenario, with one ofďŹ cer asking the questions and another taking notes. I was aware of being watched by the RCMP for at least six months following my innocent little dinner party.â&#x20AC;? Should the state be allowed inďŹ nite latitude to protect its citizens? Kanata Theatre patrons can draw their own conclusions when â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pack of Liesâ&#x20AC;? runs from Feb. 7 to 18.

tawa, the travel patterns of people in the downtown will drastically change. How can we think ahead and ensure the city makes it easier for them to get where they will want to go in the core? That means the team working on the project is considering everything from the proposed Centretown community design planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea to convert some north-south streets to two-way trafďŹ c, to the shape of curbs at key intersections. At the end of the process in December, the city will have a better idea of the aspects it needs to tackle to make sure people can get around downtown in the best way, whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by foot, bicycle, train, bus or car. It could include anything from advising that the city needs to hire a transportation planner dedicated to pedestrian issues to suggesting zoning changes to strengthen the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to create a livelier streetscape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to push out and implement the different pieces in different ways,â&#x20AC;? said Nelson Edwards, the trafďŹ c planner leading the Downtown Moves project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re creating a lens to look at everything weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;?

About 50 people contributed to the Downtown Moves discussion during an open house at city hall on Jan. 17, including Post-It Note comments addressing specific mobility issues in their neighbourhood. the ďŹ rst indication that Downtown Moves would do things a bit differently. Instead of the standard open house in a church basement, the project launched with a series of lectures from top urban thinkers meant to inspire both the public and city staff to think differently and think big about mobility issues. It inspired Edwards to realize both the big and small picture: the overall transportation web in the downtown, as well as things as detailed as the timing of crosswalk signals. Between the buildings, the

city has a swath of space it controls, Nelson said. In the future, we will need to change how we decide how much of that space is reserved for cars, how much for cyclists and how much for pedestrians, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a framework Downtown Moves hopes to establish, Edwards said. It could mean the width of sidewalks might be determined based on the level of pedestrian trafďŹ c on that street, said transportation committee head Marianne Wilkinson, the councillor for Kanata North. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at the kinds

of concrete ideas that could be done to ease pedestrian access,â&#x20AC;? she said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a positive direction, said Jordan Charbonneau, president of the Centretown Citizens Community Association, who represents the City Centre Coalition on the Downtown Moves steering committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about restoring, or establishing and promoting a balance of users for the streets.â&#x20AC;?

Old Ottawa East residents Ron Rose and Heather Jarrett examine graphics showing how plans to move the Lansdowne sports dome to the University of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lees Campus could squeeze out plans for a pathway along the river.

Residents worry dome will cancel path plans Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Just months after approving a new plan for Old Ottawa East, community members are worried the city is forsaking its commitment to constructing the Rideau River nature trail in order to ďŹ nd a new home for the sports dome that has to move out of Lansdowne Park. The city and the University of Ottawa have partnered in a plan to move to dome to the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lees Avenue campus, and plans for the project were presented at a public

open house at the campus on Jan. 17. But while a few people in attendance said they were excited about the prospect of a new sports facility in the neighbourhood, many more expressed concerns that the tight ďŹ t for the dome at 200 Lees Ave. would essentially make it impossible to construct the planned pathway. One section of the pathway along the Rideau River at Springhurst Park has already been constructed, and the Old Ottawa East community design plan calls for pathway

construction in the remaining sections that are currently informally used by residents in the area, including the University of Ottawa property, which is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;messiestâ&#x20AC;? and most signiďŹ cant section, said pathway proponent Mary Trudeau. Silvio Miron, the universi-

tyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leader on the dome project, said the current dome plan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it impossible to eventually construct the pathway, but he acknowledged that it would make it much more challenging to construct the trail in the future. Instead, the university has proposed ďŹ lling the gap in a pathway that runs under the Transitway at the south end of the campus and along Lees Avenue and the Queensway at the front of the campus. The path would be improved to make it passable by cyclists, and it would be lit. John Dance, president of the Old Ottawa East Community Association, said he has received little response from the city and the university when he has brought up the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand why the city isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t more concerned about this,â&#x20AC;? Dance said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why is it that a year ago, it was seen as a critical missing link, and now it seems to have been forgotten.â&#x20AC;? That concern has now reached city hall, and a discussion with the university about the pathway plan is upcoming, said city spokesperson Jocelyne Turner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city is aware of the importance of this pathway in the freshly approved Old Ot-

wrote in an email. Turner wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment further on the timing of that discussion, nor about whether the city would be pushing to see its pathway plan incorporated into the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redevelopment.

Getting to know â&#x20AC;Ś Kyle Turris By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com Kyle Turris has surely found his new hockey oasis. From toiling in the desert with the Phoenix Coyotes to a return to a hockey-mad market with the Ottawa Senators, Turris has seen his world undergo a massive sea change in just a few short months. But even in the middle of one of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed frosty winters, the 22-year-old native of New Westminster, B.C., is a young man at peace with where the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has taken him. Obtained from the Coyotes on Dec. 17 in a deal for defenceman David Rundblad and a secondround draft pick, Turris wasted little time making an impact with his new team. Senators head coach Paul MacLean will tell you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than just a coincidence that his team went 8-1-1 in its ďŹ rst 10 games with Turris in the lineup. The 6-1, 195-pounder quickly ďŹ lled a need as the Senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second-line centre and produced 11 points in his ďŹ rst 15 games with the team. Turris was the No. 3 overall pick by the Coyotes in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Six months later, he led Team Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goldmedal winning squad in scoring at the 2008 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship in the Czech Republic. The newest Senator took some time out with Score to share some of his thoughts about hockey and more: Q: Who was your hockey hero growing up? A: Steve Yzerman. He was the best all-around hockey player, Detroit Red Wings captain, won the Stanley Cup (three times) â&#x20AC;Ś he was just unbelievable. Q: Tell us something about Vancouver that nobody would

ÂŽ

know. A: You can go skiing and golďŹ ng in the same day. Q: What do you remember about your draft day? A: I remember everything. Waking up, getting ready, working out in the morning because the draft wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the afternoon, doing a couple of interviews, walking over to the rink (Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio), seeing the atmosphere, Wayne Gretzky calling my name to come up and join him on the podium because Phoenix had drafted me â&#x20AC;Ś it was a pretty neat experience. Q: Your favourite memory about world juniors. A: Winning the gold in overtime. The whole tournament was fun and the way Hockey Canada treated us was great. Q: Where do you keep that gold medal? A: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got it in a safe back in Vancouver. Q: Other than the weather, the biggest difference between Phoenix and Ottawa. A: Here, I live about ďŹ ve minutes from the rink but back in Phoenix, I was about 35 minutes away. The hockey atmosphere is deďŹ nitely quite a bit different here. Q: Name three people, living or dead, who youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have dinner with. A: Muhammad Ali, Neil Armstrong (he was the ďŹ rst guy who walked on the moon and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be pretty interesting) and Albert Einstein (I read a book about him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be pretty cool). Maybe Steve

like a little bit of everything. Q: Your favourite TV show. A: Modern Family is hilarious. I like Seinfeld, too. Q: Your favourite movie. A: Dumb and Dumber is pretty good. Q: Your favourite thing to do away from the rink. A: Just relaxing with my family and friends.

NEW YORK ISLANDERS

Friday, Feb. 3, 7:30 p.m. Sportsnet East More was expected this season out of the Islanders, who again find themselves closer to the Eastern Conference basement than a playoff position. But the Isles arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t without some standout performers, the most notable being former No. 1 overall pick John Tavares, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scoring at nearly a point-per-game clip. Also chiming in as offensive leaders are Matt Moulson and PA Parenteau, while Michael

Yzerman, too. Q: If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cooking dinner, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the menu? A: Pasta. Something like a fettucine alfredo mix with marinara sauce, with a rib eye (steak) on the side Q: Your favourite music. A: I like relaxing to Jack Johnson type of stuff, and I like the Kings of Leon upbeat stuff. I

Grabner was a Calder Trophy finalist a year ago. On defence, the return to health of Mark Streit has been a boost for the Isles. Al Montoya and Evgeni Nabokov have split the majority of the goaltending chores.

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS Saturday, Feb. 4, 7:00 p.m. CBC The Maple Leafs are pushing hard to end a six-year absence from the Stanley Cup playoffs. Offensively, much of Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fortunes rest in the hands of Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul, who both rank among the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top point-getters. Also chipping in to the Leafsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attack are a forward group that includes Tyler Bozak, Mikhail Grabovski, Tim Connolly and Clarke MacArthur. On the blue

line, the leader of the pack is captain Dion Phaneuf, the lone Leaf voted into the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game by fans. James Reimer is the main man in goal for Toronto and he gets backup support from Johan Gustavsson.
