‘The trees are going to come down’: city Protesters of Beaver Pond development pack public meeting BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD Nothing will stop the development of the Beaver Pond lands, said a City of Ottawa lawyer. “KNL has a right to develop the lands,” said city solicitor Tim Marc at a public meeting to discuss the development of the South March Highlands at the Mlacak Centre on Thursday, July 15. “Let me be clear on this, the trees are going to come down.” KNL Development Ltd., a partnership of developers Urbandale Corp. and Richcraft Homes, had planned to begin clear-cutting trees on eight hectares of land north of the Beaver Pond this week. But city council passed a motion last week put forward by Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson preventing KNL from starting work on July 19 as originally planned, until the company completes a set of conditions. City of Ottawa staff is waiting for KNL to present a tree conservation

plan, a detailed inventory of species at risk, more information about buffers used for natural environment areas and grading and drainage plans. “There are certain elements of this plan that are insufficient,” said Astrid Nielsen, a city forester. KNL sent a letter to city council arguing it had fulfilled all requirements to move ahead with the development. But the motion will only delay the development, not stop it, warned Marc. MEETING More than 150 people packed into the hall at the Mlacak Centre on Thursday, July 15 to discuss the development plans of the South March Highlands. KNL representatives did not attend the meeting. We don’t want to hear any legal crap,” said David Clark, a resident. “We want to preserve our lands.”

A young child plays in the sand on Sunday, July 4 at the Point Beach in Constance Bay. Police will no longer be asking beachgoers to stay within the access lanes. “It’s uncomfortable for us, not that all the calls we get are always comfortable, but it’s uncomfortable to get a call to tell a woman and her 5-year-old to get off the beach,” said police chief Vern White.

Public or private — who owns the beach at Constance Bay? The City of Ottawa has thrown its hands up in the air saying the only thing it can say with all certainty is that it’s not the municipality’s. Landowners along the shoreline say the beach is private property. The hundreds of people from the city’s west end who regularly use the beach say it’s traditionally public property. The Kourier-Standard is exploring the dispute in a three-part series: Beach battle. This week in the final part we talk to the councillor, chief of police and the city solicitor’s office. JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD Residents along Lane Street received a letter from Ottawa Chief of Police Vern White on Friday, July 9. The letter explained police would no longer be responding to trespassing calls because there are no identifiable markers setting out the boundaries of beachfront owners’ properties. “The letter just talks mostly about us not continuing to take calls for service under the trespass act,” said White. “From our perspective it’s not clear enough for us to act

on it.” Police will continue to take calls for illegal activities that occur on the beach. “If there’s criminal activity, then call us,” said White. “We’ll come to those calls but don’t call us when somebody’s walking on the beach saying you want them removed.” Waterfront property owners have said they own to the shoreline – or water’s edge – and no longer want people using the beach on Plan 412. “Their property line, they argue, grows and diminishes depending on the time of the year,” said White. “It’s not so clear where your land is

since the property line moves. “We’re saying go to court, get a judge’s decision and then we’ll have a discussion on responding to calls. I just think this one has a solution and right now it doesn’t need to include the police.” West Carleton Coun. Eli ElChantiry, chair of the police board, said he has no say in how the police choose to do their job. “The police chair and board do not control the police,” he said. “The board is there as an oversight. We don’t interfere with the operations of the police.” ‘IT HAS TO BE SETTLED’ El-Chantiry said he agrees the only way to settle the dispute once and for all is for one of the sides to go to court and get a final ruling. The deeds say the waterfront residents own to the shoreline; but it doesn’t specify if it’s the shoreline from when the deeds were granted or the shoreline today, said ElChantiry. “It has to be settled,” he said. “It won’t get settled until it goes to court. I need to know to where they own.” The infighting in his ward is tearing the community apart, he said. “It’s really breaking my heart,” said El-Chantiry. “It’s like someone took a knife and split the community in two.” The city won’t fight the property issue, he said. BEACH BATTLE, SEE 3

BEHAVIOUR AN ISSUE Both the chief and councillor said behaviour and conduct at the beach is an issue everyone agrees on. “People who live there do have complaints, and legitimate complaints,” said White. “Part of it is parking but we don’t control the parking. People partying, people drinking, we’ll continue responding to those calls; it’s not about us not wanting to work that area, it’s about us not wanting to be used and not

STILL A JEWEL In an article printed in a local newspaper back in 2008 ElChantiry was quoted as calling the beach “a jewel.” “That article, we weren’t talking about the beach, we were talking about all of Constance Bay,” he said. “I don’t apologize for calling all of my area a jewel. I still do call all of Constance Bay a jewel – we have more greenspace, more water, more farmers than anywhere in Ottawa. I take pride and joy in it.” People should be able to go up for the day and enjoy it, he said.

“I think today we are one city, one community.” He said the number of beachgoers has increased in the past four years, but the article wasn’t the cause, it was social networking. He said he has seen parties broadcast on Facebook listing the Point Beach as the destination. The police are warned when such events are taking place. “We have it on record,” said El-Chantiry. “We’re monitoring social networks for parties on the beach.” He also said it’s hard to enforce an alcohol policy on the beach when waterfront owners can drink on the sand but don’t want to see anyone else doing it. “You can’t have one side black and one side white,” said ElChantiry. “It’s always been a grey area. We need that clarity.”

“I don’t think the taxpayer should pay for the city to go to court,” said El-Chantiry. “So I’m hoping…someone wants to take it to a higher court to have a ruling on it.” “The city of Ottawa doesn’t take a position on (the issue),” said city lawyer Tim Marc. It’s not a municipal interest.” The city did provide legal information to both sides, he said. “We have provided the opinion that the way to find an answer to this question is for someone to make an application to the Ontario Supreme Court,” said Marc. “You want a conclusive answer to this, then someone needs to make an application.” The police chief said the battle isn’t fair to either side. “It needs to be clear,” said White. “At least then you have an exact point. But from this location to the shoreline doesn’t help us. “The landowners would argue it has been decided. We’ve been responding in the hopes we can make this easier and to come to some kind of resolution but that’s not happening. We just need some legal, judicial representation, presentation as to what the property line should be.”

having a clear idea.” The councillor said people from outside the immediate community should enjoy the beach but be considerate of those who live near it. “Whether you’re from Constance Bay, West Carleton or Kanata the rules are the same,” said El-Chantiry. “Be respectful, behave, please don’t drink and drive. I believe the public has the right to go to the beach. But pick up your garbage, park legally.” Capacity is a concern because vehicles have been blocking emergency access to the area, said the councillor. “We all agree on that,” he said. The city fixed the no parking signs along the street to make them clearly visible and surveyed Bishop Davis Drive to mark what is city-owned. Last week, some vehicles parked at The Point Dining Lounge received tickets for parking in the wrong area. Emergency vehicles have to be able to get to their destination, said El-Chanity. People should be aware of where they’re parking and whether it’s legal or not.

“We walk through these woods, our children walk through these woods,” said another resident. “Not Urbandale, not Premier Dalton McGuinty, and not Mayor Larry O’Brien.” The developer plans to build 3,200 homes on two square kilometres of forested land north of the Beaver Pond. Resident Jennifer Bygrave said the South March Highlands is the wrong area for a housing development. “You don’t put houses in an old growth forest,” she said. The Coalition to Save the South March Highlands will picket Urbandale offices if the developer starts chopping down trees, said coalition members. The coalition collected the names of volunteers to picket the company during the meeting. BEST DEAL The city secured the best deal it could, said Wilkinson, with the developer agreeing to preserve 40 per cent of the land as a natural environment area. In 1981, the former city of Kanata agreed to allow development of 567 hectares of land running north of the Beaver Pond, in exchange for designating 40 per cent of the total area as open space. The open space was later defined as including the Kanata Lakes Golf & Country Club, the Trillium Woods and stormwater management areas and land to be used as parks. The land slated for development straddles the Kizell Pond and runs north of the Beaver Pond where it extends to Morgan’s Grant and the future Terry Fox Drive ex-

tension. “If we had not done the 40-per-cent agreement you’d have seen more development land,” said Wilkinson. This is well above the provincial standard of five per cent said Wilkinson. The only way to preserve the land is to buy it or swap land – neither of which the city has the resources to do, said Wilkinson. The city values the total area approved for subdivision at $400 million. Mayoral candidates Clive Doucette and Alex Cullen attended the meeting, voicing their support to stop the development.

“The city can afford to appropriate some of this,” said Cullen. “We need to find out what’s available.” Doucette said voters must elect a council that places more value on natural environment areas, like the South March Highlands. “Can we save the South March Highlands?” asked Doucette at the meeting. “I think we can but it’s not going to be through the OMB process. “What we really need is a different view at city hall about the … importance of natural lands.”

Motions dropped to speed up court date Terry Fox construction to continue JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD The South March Highlands Carp River Conservation Inc. dropped its injunction to halt the continued construction of the Terry Fox Drive extension on Thursday, July 8. The motion would have put a stop to construction of the roadway while waiting for judicial review. The city also halted its motion for a $50,000 security deposit. Both sides agreed to stop the motions from going forward in order to speed up the court process. “To accelerate the court date, we agreed that in order to do that we would drop motions leading to the judicial review so the court doesn’t have to spend time on the motions,” said Paul Renaud, a member of the South March Highlands coalition. The issue will be heard in court on Sept. 17, at least a month earlier than if the two side had gone ahead with the motions.


“Ideally we’d like to have it even sooner,” said Renaud. “But we do have a full panel so the outcome is unlikely to be appealed.” Three judges will sit in on the proceedings, he said. The issue will be heard in Toronto divisional court because the system in Ottawa is too backed up, said Renaud. “We couldn’t get a reasonable date in Ottawa,” he said. The road is needed to serve existing traffic, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. With only one main route connection the north and south, it’s not good enough for a community with almost 100,000 residents, she said. The project includes plans to create a manmade wetland to replace one destroyed by construction work, and the road will have fencing and underground culverts allowing the safe passage of wildlife, said Wilkinson.

Province launches special waste removal program KOURIER-STANDARD STAFF Throwing out hazardous waste just became a whole lot easier, said Stewardship Ontario. The non-profit agency has added 13 new material categories and thousands of new products to its list regulated by the province. Stewardship Ontario is a non-profit agency responsible for overseeing the province’s recycling and hazardous waste removal programs. The organization was created by the Waste Diversion Act in 2002 by provincial legislation. Starting this month, the organization rolled out Orange Drop across the province, a program designed to make it easier for residents to remove their hazardous waste. The list of materials now accepted includes batteries, pharmaceuticals, syringes and aerosol containers. Orange Drop follows the municipal hazardous or special waste program, introduced in 2008, said Sean Magee, Stewardship Ontario’s promotion and education co-ordinator. The special waste program accepted nine waste material categories including paint and solvents. The program is expected to divert 27 million kilograms of trash from Ontario’s landfills – 10 million more kilograms than last year. “The more we can divert away from landfills the longer their lifespan will be,” said Magee. “The main goal is to protect the environment.”

Kanata Kourier-Standard - JULY 22, 2010




Take care on summer swims

Beaches for all

July marks the halfway point of summer. We’ve entered into the full swing of summer and everyone’s thinking about how to stay cool. As the city flocks to the beaches, water safety is often the last thing on the mind – that is until something goes wrong. According to the Canadian Red Cross, the most drownings happen in the months of July and August when temperatures are typically at their highest. Now is the time to think about water safety – before your toes touch the water. The City of Ottawa website states that the leading cause of drowning for children is a backyard pool. Make sure the pool is properly fenced with a padlocked gate to prevent children from falling in. It takes as little as three minutes for a child to drown. When it comes to swimming in open water, women are more likely to observe safe water practices. Every year, more men drown than their female counterparts. Canadian Red Cross statistics show that 81 per cent of all drownings were men, particularly in the 35 to 44 age range. Over 90 per cent of drowning fatalities related to boating were male, as well as 83 per cent of recreational swimming fatalities. Often swimmers over estimate their abilities and get a cramp, then can’t make it back to shore. So how can swimmers stay safe? The most important thing is to never swim alone. Make sure that if something goes wrong, there is still someone around to call for help. Children should swim within arms reach at all times. Having supervision close by can prevent a tragedy before it has time to start. Use common sense and avoid the water after a few drinks.

To the editor, The beaches at Constance Bay are long, sandy and beautiful, and deserve to be available to the general public. The only way for the beaches, regardless of who has supposedly private ownership or not, is to stop trying to keep a wonderful natural asset for the few. If the beaches are opened up to the general public by the City of Ottawa, with good public facilities, the present noise and undesirables, public urination etc. will no longer be a problem. By the way, it does not take a crowd to spoil a beach. A few years ago, we suggested family members from out of town visit the beach with their two young children. However, while there, they were upset by the presence of a homeless man who urinated on the beach nearby. At the time, no one else was around. BEACHES, SEE 7


Bridlewood deserves pool and rink To the editor, An Ottawa journalist recently observed there is a distinct lack of facilities in our suburbs and that councillors Jan Harder and Peter Hume have come up with a simple solution requiring a change to the city’s existing policy in order to speed up the process of acquiring much needed recreation facilities. Unfortunately when I raised the issue with our councillor a few years ago, I was told the policy was a provincial one and could not be revisited at the municipal level. At a recent community association meeting the issue of the lack of facilities was met with a less than inspiring response. One resident questioned the “gift” of several hundred thousand dollars – originally allocated to Bridlewood – to Kanata north for use towards their new recreation complex. Perhaps there was a valid explanation for the transfer of this very significant sum of money and if so, it certainly wasn’t forthcoming that evening.

The current proposal before council allows for using 50 percent collected with the remainder borrowed using future development charges to pay off the balance and the interest. How much has been collected thus far in Bridlewood/Emerald Meadows? I would think more than enough to begin construction of a recreation complex or a pool or maybe even both. Clearly, Bridlewood/Emerald Meadows is in dire need of a swimming pool or two, similar to what Glen Cairn, Katimavik and Beaverbrook have as well as an indoor rink. We aren’t asking for a multi-million dollar-everything-but the-kitchen-sink recreation complex; we simply want a pool and an indoor rink that can be utilized during the summer months as an upscale skateboard facility similar to the one at McNabb arena. Our community is blossoming with precious little to show for all of the existing development, not to mention what the future holds. Recognizing that there is an outdoor

skateboard park, it is not what older boarders need and our community has a distinct lack of venues for teenagers, so why not look towards the future and have a facility that helps to satisfy more than one age group within the community. It is going to take a very strong and determined councillor to bring forward and fight for all that is lacking in Kanata south, particularly Bridlewood/Emerald Meadows. This community is now more than 30 years old. How long must we wait? Donna Mulvihill Kanata

Alternatives to landfills needed

mercial and institutional sector sends to landfills. Plasco’s pilot project is also located at this site so the facility is currently serving as more than just a garbage dump. The city has a memorandum of understanding with the Plasco Energy Group for a 400 tonnes per day plant to handle residential waste and it is expected Ministry of Environment approval will be obtained in the near future to allow for the construction of this Canadian solution for waste to energy

New Patients Welcome!


To the editor, There have been certain misunderstandings about my position on key points made during recent city council and committee meetings regarding Waste Management and its expansions plans for the Carp Road landfill. While some may suggest that I want the landfill to be relocated elsewhere, that is not the case. I am 100 per cent against creating or expanding any landfill facility anywhere. My point has always been that burying waste in this day and age does not make sense. We need other alternatives and solutions. We have access to them and we have more modern solutions rather than the landfill option. The city is able to manage with such modern programs as its blue and black box recycling, and or-

ganics programs, while working on additional modern solutions such as plasafication with the Plasco technology. I would also suggest that the Trail Road Landfill is as modern as any that Waste Management would construct, in fact, there are technologies in use there that Waste Management would do well to copy. The current landfill facility on Trail Road, just to clarify, will soon only handle very small amounts of residual waste, far less than the 80 per cent that the industrial, com-

e-mail letters to

production. I am working to see construction and demolition waste recycled and was successful in having council approve a motion on this topic. I am continuing to support increased diversion and am investigating options to have organics banned from all landfills, both municipal and private sector. The provincial target of 60 per cent diversion rate for IC&I waste is achievable with alternative technologies. In fact, with these alternate solutions, we could see a diver-

sion rate of up to 90 per cent, which has been proven in other countries, such as Sweden. The more landfill space we create, the less incentive there is to develop new recycling technologies and other initiatives. Limiting landfill space will force us to look for better and less expensive options in recycling, diversion and alternative disposal technologies. Shad Qadri City Councillor Ward 6 - Stittsville

Does Harper want to know less about Canadians? NEVIL HUNT KOURIER-STANDARD If information is power, why does the federal government want less information? The Conservatives recently announced the end of the long-form census, the document that helps many organizations – and the government itself – make the right decisions about a community’s needs. At the same time, the Nevil voluntary short form will Hunt go to more homes. Opinion End result? More forms, less information and greater cost. Voluntary data is always suspect. Some demographic groups will fill them out more than others, and will therefore be over-represented. Industry Minister Tony Clement asked Sta-

tistics Canada to scrap the long form without any public consultation. Now the people who need accurate stats are complaining. Clement has since said he won’t change his mind, pointing to Canadians’ fears of government intrusion, although the census folks soon pointed out that complaints are just about nil. In the interests of research, I printed out a long form from a recent census and filled it in on behalf of Jane and John Doe. Remember that all the info that could identify the Doe family is kept out of the hands of researchers for at least 92 years. If the Does are paranoid, they can even choose to check a box that ensures their names are never linked to the census, even if they’re dead and buried. The Doe family shared the following information for consumption by researchers and the public: • sex, birthdate and marital status, • disabilities, • place of birth, citizenship, languages spoken, • their race and families’ ancestry, • if they’ve moved lately, • level of education and field, • workplace and occupation, • time spent each week at work and doing unpaid work, • how they commute, • income,

• if they rent or own their home, and when it was built • the number of rooms and bedrooms in their home, • what they spend on utilities, • how much their home is worth. If this feels too onerous for some, maybe they should stop using a crayon. If it feels too intrusive for others, maybe they should pack up the canned food and the guns and go live in a cave before the G-Men come to take them

Noruziaan started the company Empire Decks and Fences, a deck and fence building company last March. Business has been good, said the young entrepreneur, and this year the company figures to earn $150,000 to $200,000 in revenue. Noruziaan is one of 25 Ottawa-area students selected to participate in the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation’s Entrepreneurship Centre’s summer company program. Each participant is selected based on the quality of their business plan and are eligible to receive $3,000 in start-up money. The centre also offers men-

tors to help the young entrepreneurs craft their business plan and offer advice – this year’s mentors included a banker, an accountant, a lawyer and a sales and marketing expert. “All of these students possess business skills and a personal commitment that set an excellent example for entrepreneurs of all ages,” said Stehphen Daze, executive director of entrepreneurship and innovation at the centre.

ENTREPRENEUR Noruziaan took stock of his personal inventory before setting out to start his own business, a scary proposition. He was a good builder and planner, skills that had pushed him into his fifth year studying chemical engineering at the University of Ottawa. The housing market was chugging along pretty well in the west-end suburbs with 14,000 new homes built in Ottawa during 2009. Noruziaan figured to cash in on its success. “I figured a lot of those people needed decks and fences,” said Noruziaan. I’m an engi-

neering student so I love building structures.” Noruziaan used his $3,000 start-up money for marketing, and advertising: T-shirts, business cards and an advertising website on the Internet. During his first job, Noruziaan barely made any money – he misjudged the costs of building materials. But since then his profit margin has grown and he figures to bank $40,000 this year, all of which will go back in to the company to fuel expansion plans, he said. The four-man company will expand to two-crews next year, said Noruziaan. “I’m going to be doing this for at least five years,” said Noruziaan. “A lot of my friends graduate university struggling to find jobs, but I’m not worried, because I know I’m going to be OK.”

The Beaverbrook teen had always loved playing laser tag and paintball; he decided to combine the two into a fun shoot-em-up outdoor game. “There’s no pain like laser tag,” said Pope. “But there’s a different variety of games you could play like paintball.” The most difficult part of starting a company is drafting a business plan, said Pope, figuring out the costs of doing business and sticking to a budget. Pope runs a mobile company, bringing his game to soccer fields, school gyms and other indoor and outdoor venues. Using inflatable obstacles that players can hide behind makes the laser tag bunkers

portable, said Pope. Business has been good this summer, said Pope, with the company figuring to take in between $10,000 to $20,000. “Right now I’m trying to break even because of the huge startup costs and the insurance is very expensive on all the equipment.” Most of this year’s profit will go to pay for the laser tag obstacles and the laser guns, but next year’s profits are earmarked for Pope’s bank account. Pope, who starts his first year of civil engineering next year, said young entrepreneurs should craft a solid business plan before starting a new company. “Review it and get it right,” said Pope. “Just work really hard.”

Kanata student apprentices with pro theatre company Check us out on twitter: kourierstandard

Chloe Lemay is learning stage management over the summer in Odyssey Theatre’s youth apprenticeship program.

about the show. “Everyone’s testing each other, testing their fidelity.” The play will run from July 29 to Aug. 29 at Strathcona Park. Performances will take place Tuesday through Sunday evenings at 8 p.m. ($19$24), Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. (paywhat-you-can), and Wednesday youth matinees at 1 p.m. ($5). For more information call 613-2328407 or visit

613-592-6193 DR. DAVID DICK • DR. MICHAEL ROBERTS DR. AGGIE FRANZMANN • DR. LORENDA SMITH • DR. CHRIS MOREY SUMMER HOURS Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Tuesday 8:00 am - 8:00 pm Closed Saturdays


Chloe Lemay is spending her summer apprenticing with professional theatre company Odyssey Theatre. “I love theatre, I can’t get enough of it,” said the 15-year-old. The youth apprenticeship program takes 15 students between 14 to 21 years old. The program allows those interested in stage productions to expand their interests and develop their skills. “The program is unique in its ability to offer youth a combination of practical experience, formal training and mentoring in a supportive environment,” said general manager Dana Uzarevic. “Apprentices are paired with professional mentors, who provide one-on-one training and guidance throughout the apprenticeship.” Lemay, who attends All Saints Catholic High School, was placed in stage management. “I’m an apprentice to the stage manager so I’m back stage,” said the Kanata Lakes resident. “It’s really interesting actually. I help with the set changes; I will often hand sets up the stairs to people and keep track of the props – if we lose a prop that’s a huge problem. Sometimes they’ll put me on books so if an actor calls out

‘line’ I have to give it to them.” Lemay said she is more interested in being on stage, but being behind it is teaching her new things she will take with her when she returns to school. “It’s only been three weeks and I’ve learned an insane amount,” she said. “I’m really happy that I’m a part of it, everyone’s really nice here. I feel like I’m getting more organized because of it too.” Lemay’s drama teacher gave her a pamphlet about the program and she went through a number of interviews before she landed the spot. “First we had to apply, then they would call us back and do a little phone interview and ask for an audition,” said Lemay. At one point, she was asked to move a chair across the stage. “They’d give us an emotion and then we’d have to move the chair across the room with that emotion,” she said. “Like you’re really happy or really sad and you move the chair based on that emotion. Or really scared, so you move it like it’s a bomb and it’s going to explode. It was interesting.” Odyssey Theatre will be performing They All Do It, a contemporary comedy inspired by Mozart’s opera Cosi fan tutte for its 24th season of Theatre under the Stars. “It’s really all a game,” said Lemay

Even though the improvements to the intersection of Stonehaven Drive and Richmond Road are not complete, Urbandale is applying to lift the holding zone at 310 Stonehaven so it can build another 217 houses there. Because of traffic problems on Stonehaven and Richmond, City Council voted to put a hold on development at 310 Stonehaven until traffic problems were fixed. Traffic engineers consider the intersection close to failing – people who have been stuck waiting to get through for 15 minutes or more are understandably more negative. Adding more houses near Stonehaven would cause the intersection to fail.

LET’S MAKE CANCER HISTORY For information about cancer, services or to make a donation



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

Pat Cassidy, Nepean Optometric Clinic

It’s Time to Say ‘Good-Bye’ After almost thirty years of greeting and helping the people of Nepean and the surrounding area, I will be saying “Good-bye” on July 28. It has been a great time for me over the years participating in the growth and changes at Nepean Optometric Clinic while also watching our patients grow and change. I have enjoyed working with the doctors, the staff and our patients. Our first location at Bell Mews was in a small office on the second floor with one optometrist and two staff. Now we have four optometrists and twelve staff in our ground floor location at Bell Mews Plaza. Over the years I have met many interesting people. I have had the privilege of getting to know three and four genera-

tions of the same family as they come to our office for their eye care. I look forward to my first year of retirement as I travel to Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Ireland and Mexico. At this time, I would like to say “Good-bye” to one and all and thanks for making my working life such an enjoyable time. Because of you, our patients, I will have a lot of wonderful memories to take with me into retirement. Thank you. Pat Cassidy

Pat has been meeting and greeting patients at Nepean Optometric Clinic since 1981. She has made an effort to know and care for each of them individually. We will miss you, Pat! The Doctors and Staff of Nepean Optometric Clinic | 39 Robertson Rd. Bells Mews Plaza | 613.820.8272

Kiwanis Idols to be featured on new recording




Finalists from Kiwanis Idol will be featured on Glee Ottawa’s new CD. Glee Ottawa is a new program that will be recording a CD and music video of popular hits, similar to those featured on the Glee TV show. “We are honoured to work with Kiwanis Idol on this new program,” said Shann Bailey, vocal coach and arranger for Glee Ottawa. “It will give young singers the support, vocal coaching and music industry mentorship that they just can’t get anywhere else.” Eldon Fox, founder of Kiwanis Idol sees the partnership as a kind of finishing program for the finalists. “These are young kids who have a dream to sing like their idols,” he said. “The Kiwanis Idol competition gives them the confidence to reach for that dream. But now, with Glee Ottawa, we can also offer our participants continued support, high-level vocal coaching and actual experience in a music industry recording project.” Bailey will be giving all Kiwanis Idol participants support and vocal tips throughout the competition. “The pop music genre makes many demands on a singer: extraordinary breath control; maintaining your pitch during stylistic techniques; and finding compelling ways to phrase the lyrics,” said Bailey, who was asked to join the

School supplies needed for September JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD

(Code #1)


With the start of school only eight weeks away, the Kanata Food Cupboard is looking for school supply donations. Client coordinator Karen Waters said they are looking for “everything and anything. Everything you need to survive in school.” The food cupboard is looking at holding supply drives at local churches in the coming weeks. “We need to start getting it in peoples’ faces with it coming up so fast,” said Waters. People wanting to donate can drop school supplies off at the Kanata Food Cupboard, at any of the food cupboard’s grocery store bins, or they can call the food cupboard to ar-

range for a staff member to pick up the items. Waters said they will be handing out school supplies on Sept. 8 and 9 at the Kanata Food Cupboard location. The summer months are slower for food donations since a lot of people are on vacation, said Waters. “It’s not too bad right now,” she said. “We’re not crying out or anything like that. You just go with the flow.” Canned goods can be dropped at the above mentioned locations. The food cupboard is also looking for adult volunteers to help supervise the various activities. The Kanata Food Cupboard is located at 20 Young Rd., in HazeldeanKatimavik. For more information, call 613-836-7847 or visit the website at

Even non-fatal drownings can be dangerous. Brain damage can occur from when a person is denied oxygen for prolonged periods. That is why pool safety should be an utmost priority this season.

* Learn to swim. Enroll the family in a certified swimming course. Not only will you learn the basics of swimming, you can learn techniques to stay afloat and save someone’s life.

Swim in safe areas only. It’s a good idea to swim only in places that are supervised by a lifeguard. Swimming in an open body of water is different from swimming in a pool. You need more energy to handle the currents and other conditions. Don’t panic and don’t fight the current. Swim with the current, gradually trying to make your way back to shore as you do so. * Remove enticing toys. Children may be drawn to floats or toys remaining in a pool. Take them out of the water when the pool is not being used.

Always Swim with a Buddy

Don’t Dive or Go Head-First into the Shallow End

MC - Swimming is a popular pastime when it is hot outside -- providing good exercise and keeping you cool. However, on average 4,000 water-related injuries occur every year. Many of them are related to swimming and boating. One in four fatal drownings is a child under the age of 14.

* Turn off the pump. Injuries have occurred across the country when children get stuck to filter intake sources. While many of these injuries occurred in larger, commercial pools, accidents can still occur at home. Turn off the filter for safety’s sake when the pool is in use. * Learn CPR. If a person does become injured in a pool, prompt commencement of CPR can help clear the airways and revive an individual. Sign up for a class in your area. * Be careful at the Water Park. OK, so you do more splashing than swimming, but it’s just as important to know your skill level at the water park as it is at the pool. Take a moment to read warnings and other signs. The pool and the beach are great places to learn new skills, socialize, and check out everyone’s new beach toy. So don’t let paying attention to safety turn you off. Now go have fun! 403295

Author writes entertaining teaching tools ‘I felt I could create a unique story that empowers children:’ Anne Doak JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD Bridlewood resident Anne Doak just published her first children’s book, Friends Under the Willow. A retired school teacher, Doak wanted to write a teaching tool for children who are facing a move. “I know when kids move, they’re really nervous about leaving old friends and making new ones,” she said. “I want it to empower kids.” Written for a grades 2 to 3 level, the book can be read to those much younger, said Doak. “I can remember the look of sheer enchantment when I read to them,” she said about her teaching days. “Children motivate me. Their love of animals is so pure and beautiful that I felt I could create a unique story that empowers children.” The story follows twins Josie and Joel who are moving into a new home. They befriend two chipmunks at their new house and they help the children make the transition. Doak, who used to teach at Castlefrank and W.O. Mitchell elementary schools, said she likes

her stories to be entertaining and informative at the same time. “It’s just been a blast,” she said. “I’m passionate about writing. When the first book came out I was so excited, it looked so good.” She also has a second book coming out shortly after, titled Maggie the Monarch Butterfly’s Big Trip, written for grades 2 to 6. “It’s filled with scientific knowledge,” said Doak, who drew all the illustrations herself. Maggie makes the migration trip to Mexico and the story follows the subsequent generations as they make their way back to Canada, she said. Children learn about the orange and black butterflies, the life-cycle, the dangers they face during the trip and other scientific facts about monarchs. “It’s teaching something about the (insect) under the guise of literature,” she said. Doak also works as a therapeutic clown at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre, an offshoot of CHEO. Wearing low-key make-up and a multi-coloured wig, Doak spends time talking, singing and playing

with children at the centre. “You just respect their space and their dignity,” she said. Doak said she has about four more books ready to go. She said a friend of hers remarked Doak would now be rich and famous. “But I certainly won’t be the next Robert Munsch,” said Doak with a laugh. For more information contact


Anne Doak’s children’s books, Maggie the Monarch Butterfly’s Big Trip, left, and Friends Under the Willow, above, are meant to educate and empower kids while being entertaining.
