Destruction rains down on Campeau ‘They went on a rampage from one end of the street to the other’ JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD Campeau Drive was severely vandalized during the early morning hours of Sunday, Aug. 1. “It was after midnight,” said resident Joan Keegan, who awoke to find soil in the wheel wells of her son-in-law’s car. “They went on a rampage from one end of the street to the other.” Bell electrical box covers were thrown around, some of the boxes were knocked over and OC Transpo bus stop seats were detached from their base and heaved into the ditch at the side of the road, said Keegan. “We found it all in the morning,” she said. Residents along Campeau Drive have been pitching in setting things to rights. “People in the neighbourhood have been putting things back,” said Keegan.

Gardens and potted plants were ripped up, soil was thrown over peoples’ cars and shoved in the wheel wells of vehicles, she said. “This usually happens when schools out,” said Keegan. “Do you know what your children are doing after midnight?” She said she’s unsure whether or not the police and city have been called regarding the vandalism. NOT A NEW PHENOMENON Keegan said this sort of behavior is not new to the area and usually happens every summer during school holidays. She said one of the worst events took place four summers ago. “By the side of our house is a bus stop seat,” she said. “When the children were out of school they set fire to it and it melted to nothing. The asphalt is still showing signs where the fire was.” VANDALISM, SEE 4


A Kanata Knights player pushes past a member of opposing team, the Bell Warriors, to score a touchdown during Game 1 of Friday Night Tykes on Aug. 6 at the Kanata Recreation Complex. The National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) showcases the sport’s newest players at the event, which is for ages eight to 10. The goal of the evening is not to win, but to have every player get an equal chance on the field and really enjoy the game.

Centre to help isolated seniors BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD The Kanata Senior’s Council is reaching out to isolated seniors in the community this year. The council will apply for a grant from the Trillium Foundation to purchase a minivan to bring seniors with no transportation or with mobility problems to the Seniors’ Centre, located next to the Mlacak Centre. The council also hopes to obtain grants to hold more activities outside the centre, said acting council president Ed Gurgurewicz. For instance, the group is starting a theatre group, called Ages and Stages, this year that will perform at seniors’ centres across Ottawa. “We hope to travel to the various senior centres offering skits on the daily lives and daily activities of seniors,” said Gurgurewicz. “It’s Geritol Follies type theatre.” The theatre company is looking for actors and people who want to help with the production of the plays, said Gurgurewicz. Gurgurewicz said the centre wants to offer more day trips for members travelling to the casino, restaurants and on cruises. The council will start the year with a pancake breakfast at the Kanata Seniors’ Centre on Sept. 9, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. It holds the event every year to welcome back members and to recruit new ones.

Development freeze forces centre to get creative with construction

SHUFFLE While the fourth floor is under construction, the centre will continue to provide service by shuffling around office space from floor to floor. The centre will use storage pods to store

excess furniture during renovations of each of the three other floors, said Jordan. “We’ve got quite a finely tuned dance with furniture going on,” said Jordan. “But the bottom line is we can continue to serve our clients.” In the meantime two nearby churches have agreed to help the centre out. The centre has relocated a Confident Children parenting group to the Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church and the Kanata Baptist Church has agreed to provide overflow parking space for the centre during construction. The federal and provincial governments will each provide one third of the $3.6 million needed to build the fourth-floor addition, with the resource centre providing the rest of the money. The centre will remortgage its building and use money from fundraisers to come up with its end of the capital. Once the expansion is completed, the centre will move its staff to the fourth floor and open up additional community meeting space on the second floor. The resource centre will offer a new diabetes education program, run by the Centretown Community Health Centre, on the second floor, while the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre will take additional space on the third floor. “For many years they have been asking to expand their space,” said Jordan.

A freeze on all new development served by the Hazeldean Pumping Station will force the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre to juggle toilets and office space over the next year. The centre started work on a fourth-floor addition to its building at 2 MacNeil Crt. this week, a $3.6-million project funded by the provincial and federal governments’ infrastructure stimulus funds. The centre provides health and social service programs serving Kanata, Goulbourn, West Carleton and Nepean. The money comes with the condition the project is finished by March 31, 2011. But the centre will have to flush all plans to finish work on the floor’s toilets and sinks until the hold is lifted, said WOCRC executive director Cathy Jordan. The development freeze has forced the centre to divide the construction work on the fourth floor addition into three phases, she said. During the first two phases the centre will construct the shell of the fourth floor and then put up the walls and install the plumbing. Once the hold is lifted – city staff are hoping by next spring, said Jordan – the centre can hook up the toilets and sinks. Until then, the centre intends to shut down a few toilets and sinks on lower

floors to allow it to open some on the fourth floor, said Jordan. “We’re getting really creative with that,” she said. “Nobody told me when I did my nursing degree I’d have to go around counting toilets.” The City of Ottawa approved the development freeze to give staff time to improve the Hazeldean station’s pumping capacity and to allay fears of raw sewage backups such as the ones last year that flooded hundreds of homes in Kanata and Stittsville. The city will complete the upgrades in two stages over the next three years. The first stage, increasing the station’s pumping capacity from 1,000 to 1,225 litres per second, is scheduled to be completed sometime next spring. The second upgrade will add another 175 litres per second of sewer capacity, but because the city must first complete an environmental assessment the project could take two years or more to complete. The city will process development applications as sewer space becomes available. “We are very close to the top of the list, if not the top,” said Jordan.

She said that was the scariest event because her house could have caught fire and her family could have been seriously hurt. “Our cedar hedge was badly burned,” said Keegan. “It could have jumped to our roof. We really hate having that seat there because we’ve seen how they melt.” Some of the side streets along Campeau Drive have circular medians where marigolds are planted each year. “Every year we plant marigolds, kids come along and pull them out and throw them on the road,” said Keegan. “It’s just out and out vandalism.” The vandalism seems to escalate in intensity each time it happens.

“I would be really, really mortified if I heard that my children had done something like that,” said Keegan. “It seems that anything that’s nice and out there to beautify, they wreck. We just want to keep things looking nice.” She said she wonders why the city doesn’t take certain initiatives to deter vandalism, such as bolting down the covers on Bell electrical boxes. “They take great delight every summer kicking them over. We’ve replaced them quite often.” Keegan said she’s also had solar lights stolen from the side of her house. “There’s no respect for things,” she said. “They just like to ruin things in their path.”

Burn trash

August busts boredom Ottawa is wonderful to visit in August, simply because there’s so much going on in the nation’s capital right now. No matter what kind of attraction you’re looking for, there’s bound to be something that tickles your fancy in or around the city. Looking to take in some cultural activities and maybe learn something new? Why not head down to Pinhey’s Point Historical Site with the kids? Budding young explorers might want to check out the Junior Archaeologist program held from Aug. 7 to 28 at the museum. The workshop runs from 1 to 3 p.m. every Saturday during August. Children can also join the Green Thumb Club, a workshop held at the museum from 1 to 3 p.m. every Sunday from Aug. 8 to 29 at the museum. Each of the workshop costs $6 per person or $15 for a family. On Aug. 28 the museum will offer a campfire with roast marshmallows, hot dogs and storytelling from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. If a change of pace is needed, why not check out the Ottawa Folk Festival, which starts Aug. 14 at Britannia Beach. Get down to your grass roots and prepare to go green with one of Ottawa’s most environmentally friendly music festivals. The festival on the beach is also one of the few to make moves towards producing zero waste by 2013. Continuing the musical theme, the Ottawa Reggae Festival picks up the weekend following the Folk Festival to keep the city hopping. And let’s not forget that August also boasts the Super Ex at Lansdowne Park, as well as many other festivals and exhibits. Summer may be winding down but Ottawa is just gearing up. Make the most of what’s left of the dying summer and get out and enjoy what the city has to offer.

To the editor: According to the City of Ottawa, 26,000 tonnes of organic material which would normally have been deposited on area landfills has been diverted to the green bin collection for organics composting. This means that the area landfills, which include the Carp Mountain, have been deprived of a large proportion of their daily diet of residential waste, hence drastically reducing their means of generating methane gas for electricity generation and at the same time slowing down the natural composting of the existing waste materials. We now have a situation ideal for the incineration of the noncompostable remaining residential waste which is otherwise left to be picked up as garbage and ends up in our landfills. This solution also allows the greatest benefit from incineration since the material for the latter process would be dry. David Lanceman Glen Cairn


Green bin program a waste of tax dollars Re: Ottawa embraces green bin program, Aug.5, KKS. It is unfortunate when the City of Ottawa uses their advertising budget to issue misleading information about a program that was ill conceived from the beginning. The headline on page 14 of the Aug. 5 edition of the Kourier-Standard: “Ottawa embraces green bin program” is truly suspect. When only 40 per cent of the taxpayers use the program, how can they assert Ottawa embraces the program? The problem lies in the approach taken by the city. It jumped into the program based on the fact that it was in use in several other cities. Unfortunately there was not a complete evaluation of the effectiveness of the other programs and what pitfalls had been encountered. The council also wanted to appear green. Their approach resulted in broken

latches, the installation of the special lever on the back of the trucks that is seldom used, the maggot problem, the need for special liners, special small bags for insertion, etc. The city also neglects to indicate that it now includes yard waste in the Green Bin total diversion figure. For statistical analysis we are robbing Peter to pay Paul. The negative effect on the yard waste program must be shown as an offset to reflect the true overall success rate of the green bin approach. One of the stated goals of this effort was to save money. We are now tied into a contract for 20 years totalling $260 million. The city had said it would cost $100 million to purchase a new landfill that would be required in 10 years. But the cost of the program this year has already escalated to almost $15 million. If it continues at this rate for 10 years it will amount to $150 million.

If that is a saving it must be the new math. The fact that the city has amassed 26 tonnes of waste over six months sounds impressive until you realize that we will have to pay Orgaworld for 80 tons per year whether we collect that amount or not. Again not much of a saving! Imagine if Plasco is successful and we have to honour a contract with them! We will then have to buy garbage from Toronto. If you add in the fact that we now have a special truck just to empty the green bins how much does that add to our carbon footprint? We should not overlook the fact that the citizens have not embraced the program in the numbers expected. The original poll was taken only of the volunteers who offered to test drive the program.

The poll then lumped together those who said they would definitely use the program with those who said they would probably use the program and indicated that there was an 80 per cent approval rate. Compare that to the fact only 40 per cent of taxpayers are participating.

Very poor polling. This is an excellent example of a potentially good program gone wrong because there were not sufficient safeguards and inadequate research. Taxpayers deserve better from their council. Owen Prince Bridlewood

PATRICIA LONERGAN KOURIER-STANDARD Girls addicted to drugs were scheduled to move into a new residential treatment centre in West Carleton on Aug. 9. The 10-bed facility known as Meadow Creek and run by the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre held its official opening ceremony last week. The Alwood Treatment Centre in Carleton Place will become an all-boys facility. The almost one-month delay in opening Meadow Creek, according to Dave Smith Centre executive director Glenn Barnes, was partly the result of sifting through hundreds of job applications. The centre, which runs community-based outbound services from its Bronson Avenue location in Ottawa, has also had to retrain staff for its residential program. Meadow Creek was originally owned and operated by the Royal Ottawa Hospital, which housed its men’s residential treatment program in the West Carleton facility. Three years ago the hospital moved the program to its new Carlingwood location. The building in West Carleton was left vacant for about two years, Barnes said, and had to be refurbished before the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre could set up programming at the location. The Alwood Treatment Centre, mean-

while, has been amalgamated into the Dave Smith Centre and, as a corporation, will be dissolved by the end of August. With boys at the 14-bed Alwood facility and girls housed in Meadow Creek, the number of females seeking treatment is expected to increase. Barnes said females only account for one-third or one-quarter of clients in most co-ed residential facilities. “It does not represent the gender split in the population,” he said, noting that the number of females in treatment increases to a 50/50 split if there is segregation. Focus groups show that females won’t enter the residential treatment facility in the first place if it is co-ed. Barnes said 16-year-old girls say they have enough on their plate without having to deal with 17-year-old boys “prancing in front of them.” For girls who might have experienced psychological or physical abuse in their past, being exposed to that can be traumatizing. “If we take the barrier away, the usage goes up,” Barnes said of segregation. A couple of girls at the Alwood Treatment Centre talked about quitting the program, Barnes indicated, but were asked to be patient and take a look at the new building. After touring the new facility, he said there were whoops, cries and giggles from the girls, who were convinced to stick it out.

The seven girls currently at the Scotch Corners facility will move to Meadow Creek on Aug. 12 for the day. They’ll have to return to the Alwood Treatment Centre to sleep since there won’t be any overnight staff members available at the new building. However, on Aug. 16 they’ll make a final move to West Carleton when a full complement of staff will be on hand. By the time the new facility opens, the number of residential beds available will jump from 14 to 26. While the extra beds are a boon for the region, Barnes indicated the centre is fighting a losing battle. He said about 350 to 500 adolescents and youth between 13 and 21 years old in Ottawa and area need addiction treatment at a residential facility. Even with plans to open a new 30 bed facility in Carp in 2014, the Dave Smith Centre will only be able to help about 120 youths a year, but it’s “16 beds more than we have now,” Barnes said. Funding is one of the main obstacles to opening new beds, he continued, explaining the Ministry of health provides operating dollars but doesn’t put capital money on the table. That means the Dave Smith Centre has to raise funds to build or refurbish facilities. Barnes said it will cost about $6.5 million to build the 30 bed facility scheduled to open in 2014.

Building a foundation of trust... one home at a time

Kanata residents can now pick up fresh produce close to home. The Kanata Farmers’ Market opened for the first time on Saturday, July 31 with resounding success. “We showed up and we were very pleasantly surprised,” said Kristian Rochon, the creator behind the market. “Most comments from people were ‘Finally, Kanata gets a farmers’ market.’” Rochon said he estimates over 800 people checked out the local produce stands on opening day. “I would have to say we were very surprised,” he said. “Because of the short notice that we were able to get from the landlord to set up everything, we had to act very quickly in opening the market. We didn’t have the time to be able to put articles in the paper. What we decided to do was take what we have, put our big sign up on Hazeldean Road and decided OK we’re going to open our first day on the 31st of July.” The location, 420 Hazeldean Road, is perfect for a mid-sized market, said Rochon. “It’s a busy straight, it’s a focal point,” he said. “We could be easily reached by everyone, easily accessible from the highway. It’s convenient for everyone.”

in the Kanata Farmers’ Market, selling all types of vegetables, breads, cakes, honey and meats. “People get fresher produce,” said Rochon about the benefits of shopping at a farmers’ market. “They get produce that has actual flavour – it exceeds the flavour of any product that you can get in a grocery store.” By shopping at a local market, consumers are also helping build a stronger economy. “They aren’t only encouraging the individual at the booth selling the items but everyone who works at a farm,” said Rochon. “We’re also inviting people to peruse in the local community in that general area. It’s also helping out the stores; it’s helping the local economy in every aspect.” The market only sells produce from growers and local farmers. “These are all farmers and producers well-known in the Ottawa area,” said Rochon, who helps his father on his farm during the weekends. “Right now we do have a really nice big variety.” But he said he is also looking for new vendors to bring in who will offer something different to consumers. The Kanata Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday until Oct. 30, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. “It was rewarding to see so many people come out to see us and be happy that we’re there,” said Rochon about the market’s opening day. “I’m really happy to see the results.”

Derby girls whip into town


The Greater Toronto Area Chrome Mollys struggle to stop Ottawa’s Riot Squad from scoring during a match at the Mlacak Centre on Saturday, Aug. 7.

BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD Roller derby is not for the faint of heart. Signs taped to the arena floor at the Mlacak Centre warned the audience not to sit to close to the track. “Danger!” warned each sign. “This is the ‘suicide seating’ area. Not recommended for children. “Sit here at your own risk. There is an actual risk of being struck by skaters.” But the dire warnings did not turn away many derby enthusiasts. Hundreds of people packed the Mlacak Centre arena on Saturday, Aug. 7 for the annual Double Burn derby bout put on by the Rideau Valley Roller Girls in Beaverbrook every summer. The first match pitted the home town Riot Squad against the Greater Toronto Area’s Chrome Mollys. The first home game of the season saw the Riot Squad skate past their southern Ontario rivals by a score of 70 to 56. Both teams took turns taking the lead, but the Riot Squad surged to a late-game victory. In the second match, the Slaughter Daughters lived up to their name, rolling over Toronto’s Smoke City Betties, crushing their opponents in a 248 to 14 victory.

WHIP IT This is the second year the Slaughter Daughters and Riot Squad have rolled into town, and they always bring with them a sizeable crowd. Roller Derby, a sport enmeshed in the campy pop culture of the 1970s, has surged in popularity across North America over the past decade, said Alison Hughes, a 24-year-old blocker and pivot with the Slaughter Daughters – especially since the release of the Hollywood film, Whip It (2009), starring Drew Barrymore, said the Kanata woman. “I think after that it exploded in popularity,” said Hughes. The Rideau Valley Roller Girls league, created in 2008, now features three teams with more than 50 players: the Riot Squad, the Slaughter Daughters and women from both teams play for the Vixen, an away team that competes in arenas across North America. Some women are drawn to the sport by the glamour and the glitz, the theatre of the sport, said Hughes. What other sport allows the players to dress in fishnets and gold hot pants and use derby names that call to mind the theatrics of the World Wrestling Federation? When Hughes rolls onto the track the fans scream Surgical Strike, not Alison Hughes.

At the beginning of the derby bouts at the Mlacak Centre an announcer dressed in a riot of blue, orange and yellow pastels shouts out the names of the girls as they circle the track, with colorful monikors like DDT, Brickhouse Bardot, Fembot Fury, Natty by Nature, Ripper A Part, and Screaming Meanie Massacre. Even the referees put on their game day faces, circling the track with names like Lou’s Yer Daddy, Chronic Master-Nat-Or and Motorhead printed on their backs. Members of the audience scream their favourite player’s names, holding up posters and cheering for players like Lady Shambles and Blackout Susan. “Some people really get into choosing their names,” said Hughes. “But once the whistle blows it’s all sport and no theatre.” Hughes, who teaches geographic information systems at Algonquin College, was a student at the college when she first came across the sport in 2008. The Rideau Valley Roller Girls set up a recruiting booth at the college looking for players in the league’s inaugural year in the sport. “I used to play hockey, but I found hockey was high maintenance,” said Hughes. “I was interested in trying something else.”

Hughes liked the team-aspect of the sport. Sure, there was a lot of hitting: hip and shoulder checks, and the occasional wipe out on the track. “Everything is controlled,” said Hughes. “It is a contact sport like men’s hockey or rugby – it’s kind of like hockey; the penalties are the same.” People do get hurt, said Hughes, and bones have been broken – just like any other contact sport. The start up costs can be expensive, said Hughes, with rollerskates selling for $200 to $500 a pair and another $200 to buy the requisite elbow and knee pads, wrist and mouth guards and helmet. But players only spend $50 a year in annual dues, she said, and the players work together on committees to organize training, buy arena time and organize bouts. Part of the proceeds of every game goes to support a charity – the Mlacak match donated part of the proceeds to Children at Risk, a group that helps children with autism disorders. The sport attracts a diverse group of women, with players ranging in age from 18 to 40, and from all walks of life, including students, nuclear scientists, lawyers, admin assistants and stay-at-home moms. Melanie Smith, a Glen Cairn woman who is on maternity leave

from her job as an acupuncturist, said she joined the sport because it was a great outlet for pent-up aggression and good exercise. “I instantly liked it,” said the 36year-old blocker with the Slaughter Daughters. “Girls are supposed to be prim and proper, but in this sport we’re allowed to be aggressive.” Growing up, Smith was a figure skater and participated in a few contact sports like rugby. “I kind of tell people it’s no worse than hockey,” she said. “There’s target zones where you’re allowed to hit – but you can’t hit from behind.” Roller derby becomes an obsession for some of the women, said Smith, who plays under the name Pretty Sketchy for the Slaughter Daughters. “Six weeks after I had a baby I was back on the track skating. I couldn’t wait,” she said. “I would say roller derby saved my life.” Most of the players work out at the gym to improve their strength and cardiovascular fitness, said Smith. Players have to keep fit to keep up with the pace of the game, she said. “The cardio is insane,” Smith said. ROLLER DERBY, SEE 11


Stallions look for new bench boss BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD The Kanata Stallions are once again looking for a new head coach after Vince Malette announced he is leaving to take a job as assistant coach of the Berlin Eisbaren in the German Elite League next season. “It’s an opportunity to go coach pro with a world-class organization,” said Malette in an email interview. Kanata Stallions general manager Lou Nistico



said he hopes to name a new head coach over the next few weeks. “We haven’t selected our coach yet,” said Nistico. “We’re still doing a couple more interviews.” The Stallions start their training camp in less than two weeks. The team will begin its season in the newly branded Central Hockey

League (formerly the Central Junior A Hockey League) on Sept. 10-12, when Kanata hosts the CHL Showcase at the Kanata Recreation Complex. Malette said turnover is a common phenomenon among coaches in the Central Hockey League – and all sports in general. STALLIONS, SEE 12

Every year new girls are recruited and allowed to try out for the teams. “Fresh meat is open to any girls who want to try out,” she said. But the “fresh meat” must pass minimum skill tests to earn the right to participate in a full scrimmage with the team, said Smith. The game is simple, she said: each team has five players on the track and each has a jammer, marked by a star on their helmets. The jammer earns points for her team by skating past opponents; they all. The lead jammer has two minutes to rack up points or she can signal to the referee to end the jam early if her opponent threatens to overtake her. The team with the most points at the end of a 60-minute game wins the match. Patricia Waugh, a 32-year-old Bridlewood woman, said she was drawn to roller derby as a release for aggression. “You can have a really bad day at school and work or in a relationship and you can get the aggression out,” said Waugh, an interior design student at Algonquin College. “It’s a really great outlet for the things that happen in life.” Roller derby is an inclusive sport, but it’s for people who aren’t afraid of its physical aspect, said Waugh, known as Scotch Minx on the Slaughter Daughters. “In roller derby it’s not if you get hurt, it’s when.” Some are drawn to the sport because it’s a chance to wear hot pants and tight leggings, added Waugh. “A lot of girls come out for the sport because they want to look cute,” she said. “And then they get hit.” The ones who are serious about the sport practice six to nine hours a week year round, said Waugh. Friendships and team camaraderie are fringe benefits of the sports, said Waugh. Players on opposing teams will spend 60 minutes knocking each other across the track, but when the game is over they will often head out to share a few drinks and talk about the game, said Waugh. Hughes said the players enjoy being on teams and playing a rough sport. “What surprised me was how fulfilling it is and how much it changes your life,” said Hughes.



Kanata Kourier-Standard - AUGUST 12, 2010




Valentine was hired in April, 2009, to replace Justin Nistico, son of the Stallions’ general manager, after he failed to lead the team into the playoffs. Valentine, a former NHL player and coach in the German Elite League, was replaced as head coach after the Stallions lost 10 games in a row after winning the season opener. The Stallions horrible start continued with the Stallions breaking the CJHL’s longest winless streak record with 26 losses in a row. In the first 31 games of the season the Stallions posted a 2-26-1-2 record. In the second half of the season

they finished with a record of 1316-1-1, not good enough to earn the Stallions a playoff berth. At the end of the season, the Stallions said goodbye to five of their 20-year-old players: Brandon Timm, Brett Ashton, Kris McCarthy, Mat Hagen and Barry Roytman. This season promises to be much better, said Malette. “Not only will they challenge (for a playoff spot) they will indeed make the playoffs,” said Malette. “Lou, Alex and I worked very hard at recruiting many good quality players for the upcoming season. I am deeply excited to see the Stallions have the success they deserve.”

Malette said the young players had an opportunity to play last year, which made the Stallions one of the top teams in the second half of the season because of their development. “We were an extremely hard team to play against and I just wish I had started the season rather than taking over during a season,” he said. “I think this is an exciting time for the Stallions.”


“When it comes to job security in sports, there is none,” said Malette. “You have to win or else you’re out.” However, a team does need “continuity with a coaching staff” if it wants to build a good program, he added. “Mr. Russo is one of the best owners I have ever worked for in any league,” said Malette about the owner of the Stallions. “He is very supportive to his hockey staff and allows the coaches and Lou to put forward the hockey direction for the upcoming season.” Malette said he was offered the

job with the Eisbaren this summer, a job that offers more money and a chance to coach a professional team, owned by Anschultz Entertainment Group, which also owns the Los Angeles Kings. “Many of the German players have played for the World Juniors, World Championships and Olympics,” said Malette. “Berlin is a world-class city with a strong hockey program.” Malette, a former assistant coach of the Ottawa 67’s and head coach of the Peterborough Petes in the Ontario Hockey League, took over as Stallions head coach 11 games into the season last year, replacing Chris Valentine.


Vince Malette has left the Kanata Stallions to take a job as an assistant coach with the Berlin Eisbaren, a German Elite League team.

Kanata Kourier-Standard - AUGUST 12, 2010


Girl nets goal during hockey training camp DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN KOURIER-STANDARD Midway through the opening scrimmage of Nepean Raiders training camp on Aug. 6, it finally happened. After stopping 75-minutes-worth of shots during the Raiders rookie camp June 18 to 21, 16-year-old goaltender Amanda Leveille finally let a puck get past her during a raucousgoal-mouth scramble, ending 93 minutes of combined shut-out play. Sitting in the upper tier of the Nepean Sportplex, her father Jim saw someone quickly send a text message outward about the breaking news. Being the centre of attention is nothing new to Amanda. The five-foot-seven goaltender has been playing AAA hockey with the boys in Kingston since she was 11. Amanda backstopped the Kingston Predators for two seasons before joining the Greater Kingston Junior Frontenacs for the past three. Stilling donning the Frontenacs gear, Amanda’s athleticism and positioning on the ice showed why she’s one of the country’s up-and-coming female netminders. “She has good rebound control, she doesn’t have any weaknesses,” Raiders head coach and general manager Peter Goulet said. “She’s got really quick feet and quick hands. She’s just an all-around good goaltender.” Amanda did have to make a few adjustments to her game, however. “It’s a lot faster,” the soft-spoken goalie said of the timing, which she quickly figured out. “The faster the shot is, the easier it is because when it’s slower you kind of overplay the shot.” Added her father: “The trick that Amanda’s done this year is the adjustment. She’s doing a lot better. With the time and space and reading of the play, she can slow it down if she has to or speed it up. “She’s gone from boys tryouts to junior scrimmages and hasn’t missed a beat. I actually think she’s done better playing up at the two levels.” Amanda was invited to the Raiders camps by Goulet because he knew the goaltender from his days coaching the Kingston Voyageurs of the Ontario Junior A Hockey League. Last summer Amanda practiced

with the Voyageurs and Goulet developed some training techniques to help her compete with the boys. “She’s capable of being a goalie at any level,” Goulet said. “I think she has real potential to represent her country one day. “I just wanted to give her the opportunity.” She also played for Goulet on a Canada Selects rep team in the summer of 2008 that went to the United States to compete in five tournaments, including at the University of Maine. “Pete is a unique coach and picked Amanda even though she’s a girl and gave her the No. 1 spot,” said her father, noting that the ideology is the same with the entire CHL team. “What we liked about the Nepean Raiders is how open they are. They don’t even bat an eyelash that Amanda is a girl. They’re really looking for the best players. I’m not saying that Amanda’s going to play junior A, but they’re not telling her that she can’t.” Despite her strong play at camp, the decision has already been made: Amanda will not be playing for the Raiders this year. Her goal is to play for Canada’s under18 team after this season, something both Amanda and her father feel is more likely if she’s getting noticed playing in a women’s program. Amanda will play for the Intermediate AA Ottawa Senators of the Provincial Women’s Hockey League under head coach Luke Richardson. The team plays its home games out of the Bell Sensplex in Kanata. The family will continue to live in Kingston and commute to Ottawa for home games. Since the majority of road games are in the Toronto area, Amanda can simply hop on the bus when the team comes through town. Jim said his daughter might live in Ottawa with a billet next season. “I’m not looking forward to all the driving,” he said, half jokingly. “I might need a new car after this season.” Even though she will not be a Raider in 2010-11, Amanda has earned her stripes with the team. “She earned her way back here,” Raiders alternate governor and assistant coach Randy Watt said. “She was one of the top three goalies at (rookie) camp. I think you’ll see her wearing a Team Canada jersey one day.”

Kanata Council Notes Marianne Wilkinson To see video, go to

KANATA AVENUE – Traffic problems and delays are occurring due to the partial closure of Kanata Avenue. I have discussed this problem with staff and they have agreed to short and longer term solutions to assist traffic flow. In the short term they are revising the marking plans on the road to add right and left turn lanes at appropriate intersections, including at Campeau Drive. This will impact the cycling lanes for the duration of the road closure. Share the road cyclists signs will be put in place. Left turn lanes at both Goldridge intersections and Knudson will be added for use during the closure as well. Additional monitoring of the Kanata/Campeau intersection is being done so that signal timing can be adjusted as required. For the long-term, additional changes will be implemented as required. When the widening of Campeau Drive from Kanata Ave. to Didsbury is done that intersection will be completely upgraded. Funding for that work is to be in the 2011 budget.



Peggy Feltmate HYDRO OTTAWA PLANNING NEW TRANSFORMER STATION IN KANATA SOUTH – Hydro Ottawa has completed the Environmental Study Report for a new transformer station in Kanata South. The new transformer station is intended to improve reliability by providing a backup to existing transformer stations and reducing the effects of Hydro One transmission outages. With a new transformer station, it will also be easier to restore service if there is an outage. The proposed location is 300/330 Michael Cowpland Drive. All of Kanata south of the Queensway will benefit from the new transformer station. The area along Hazeldean Road between Kanata and Stittsville will also see improved service. 613-580-2752

Aug. 11 marked the launch of this year’s Greek Festival at the Hellenic Community Centre off of Prince of Wales Drive. This year’s special guest kicked off the festival Wednesday night with a little taste of the home country. Maria Loi, a renowned celebrity chef from Greece and television personality will grace the festival for the first five days. Specializing in ancient Greek cuisine, Loi owns a gourmet restaurant in Nafpactos, Greece. She will offer cooking seminars for those interested in learning how to dish up a little taste of home. Erin Giakoumelos, a member of the festival committee, is thrilled that Loi is at the festival. “We’re very, very excited to have her here and share her cuisine,” Giakoumelos said. In addition, a little carnival area for kids was added to the festival, continuing the family fun. Included in the section are jugglers, clowns, and face painting. This year the festivities will start earlier on two of the days, opening for lunch on Aug. 19 and 20. The second day was added due to demand. The festival has also stepped up their efforts to be green by having more organic waste and recycling receptacles available.

Amos The Transparent is heading to Brisbane, Australia in September for the BIGSOUND 2010 Music Industry Summit and Showcase. The band is one of two Canadian acts asked to perform at the event on behalf of Canadian Music Week. “It’s a good place for us to network with other Australian bands,” said Amos guitarist Dan Hay. BIGSOUND, now in its ninth year, is a fast-growing international music business festival attended by musicians, producers, publishing companies and labels. “It’s totally a dream come true,” said Hay. The band is set to perform all three days, from Sept. 8 to 10. Hay is heading down early with the band’s tour manager and said they plan to take advantage of the trip. He said they’ll start in Sydney and work their way up to Brisbane, exploring the different areas. JAMIE KRONICK PHOTO Japan and Australia were two Jonathan Chandler, on lead vocals and keys, and Dan Hay, on guitar, performed at this year’s Bluesfest with their places on Hay’s bucket list that he’s band Amos The Transparent.

been able to cross off thanks to music tours; he played in Japan as a member of The Fully Down in 2006. “It’s neat that all this has happened,” he said. Amos members Kate Cooke and Mark Hyne will be absent at BIGSOUND, but Jonathan Chandler, Christopher Wilson and James Nicol will be attending, said Hay. “They’re losing their minds,” said Hay about his band mates’ excitement for the upcoming show. “The fact that you’re there is pretty incredible.” Vancouver singer and songwriter Laurell, who participated in Canadian Idol in 2001, is also attending the Australian music festival. BIGSOUND is produced by Q Music (Queensland Music Network Inc.) and features three days of panels, workshops and artist showcases. The event draws top international industry talent to Brisbane each year, forming a diverse collection of musicians, buyers and industry experts to create an environment of new music discovery.

City backs community-based micro-loans The city contributed $50,000. “It encourages self-employment, self-reliance and helps to build a stronger community,” said Gloucester South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches. Clients of OCLF often lack the income, assets, security or credit history to obtain loans and financing from other sources. Loans are given based on the viability of the


business, the commitment of the entrepreneur, practical work experience and/or training, a solid business plan and ability to fully repay the loan. OCLF loan proceeds may be used to start or expand a business and can be used for a number of purposes including working capital, seed capital to start a business and purchasing fixed assets. The higher risk associated with these types

of loans, where equity and collateral may play a lesser role in the lending decision, is reflected in the interest rate which ranges up to prime plus seven per cent. Loan repayment terms range from 12 to 36 months. As loans are repaid, funds are recirculated to new borrowers. More information on the Ottawa Community Loan Fund is available at
