Beaver Pond path purchase approved Council votes to buy strip of land between Trillium Woods and pond JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD City council voted to begin negotiations to buy a piece of land between the Beaver Pond and Trillium Woods on Wednesday, Sept. 8. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said it would cost the city $300,000 to $500,000 to preserve the natural pathway that would link the future Kanata North Recreation Complex to the Beaver Pond. “We don’t know the cost exactly and it’s a hard one to price,” she said, but KNL will be adjudicating the process to make sure it is a fair price. Wilkinson said she wants to see the matter settled “fairly soon,” before KNL Developments start to clear-cut the land for the 3,200 homes it plans to put in the new subdivision. Council also passed a second motion to ask the National Capital Commission (NCC) to think about


acquiring property in the South March Highlands. “We’ve asked them to formally consider it,” said Wilkinson, who had a meeting with the NCC on Thursday, Sept. 9. “They will post three scenarios for their greenbelt study.” The NCC is looking at adding fingers of land to the greenbelt/ “It won’t be posted until the end of the year,” said Wilkinson. “But it will certainly help a lot.” She added that KNL doesn’t have approval to start clear-cutting yet, but it could happen soon. ‘HAVEN’T GAINED ANYTHING’ Steve Hulaj, creator of the Facebook Beaver Pond group, said this decision will set the precedent for acquisition of the property – and not in a good way.

The National Hockey League is expected to announce the all-star game is coming to Kanata on Wednesday, Sept. 15. NHL league commissioner Gary Bettman was scheduled to be on hand to make a “major announcement” at the Chateau Laurier, where the Ottawa Senators were holding their opening-season luncheon. Speculation is that Ottawa has been awarded the 2011-12 All-Star Game, said sources from the City of Ottawa. Phil Legault, a spokesperson for the Senators, said the club won’t comment until after Bettman makes his announcement. The Senators have been on a short-list to host the game for several years now; the Carolina Hurricanes will host the 2010-11 all-star game. “I think we’re a leading candidate for it,” said Gloucester South-Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches, vice-chair of the city’s corporate services committee. “I think we have a lot to offer – our candidacy is strengthened by our Congress Centre.” The City of Ottawa approved a renovation of the Congress Centre to open up more convention space and construction will finish next April. Mayor Larry O’Brien said the all-star game will generate a lot of excitement in the city. “In the longer term (it’s an) oppor-

Kanata Kourier-Standard - SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

All-star game coming to Kanata?



“We really haven’t gained anything,” said Hulaj, who added the price quoted is too high. “The unfortunate thing is I think we’ve set a precedent. “To me it’s incredibly odd that the city council would undertake to get the NCC to look at acquiring land. What we should be doing is expropriating the entire property.” Hulaj said a piece of raw land – meaning there is no service yet to the area – goes for around $75,000 an acre. But Wilkinson said that price is only for land outside the urban boundary. “Once you have Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) approval the value increases substantially,” she said. Hulaj said although the pathway is a start, expropriating all the land would have been a better move. “With respect to the vote, it would have been nice to see council approve expropriation of the land. I think expropriation would have been the smart move,” he said. “Twenty or 30 metres does nothing to satisfy anyone who is aware of the significance of the land. That’s the width of a driveway.” Wilkinson said council didn’t approve expropriation because all the money has to be paid upfront, money the city doesn’t have. “We don’t have money like that to expropriate the whole land,” she said. “It’s approved development land.”

courts ruled the developer would not be compensated for projected lost profits, only the value of the raw land. “This process would not cost a significant amount of money,” wrote Hulaj about the expropriation process for the KNL lands in a Facebook update. “In fact, the City of Ottawa will spend as much (or more) to service the area as it would to pay for the expropriation.” Wilkinson said she looked into buying the land but it wasn’t a feasible option for the city. “Council has made a decision,” she said about the buying the pathway. “Even if it costs money council will get the connecting link.”

BUFFERS As well, Hulaj said he wonders why the city is not enforcing certain recommendations for the subdivision, such as buffer zones from the pond and railway tracks. “The establishment of a 50 metre adjacent area zone surrounding the South March Highlands (SMH) Natural Environment Area (NEA) lands is both ecologically appropriate and defensible and is recommended here,” stated a 2004 study by Brunton Consulting Service. RECENT CASE However, this recommendation is not beIn a recent court case in Guelph, Ont. where the city ing taken into consideration, said Hulaj. expropriated land from a developer for a school, the “If the city would abide by the 50 metre buffer surrounding the NEA lands, KNL 410250 would have to redesign the streets and we’d save another 150 feet for residents,” he said. “There would be no fences; there would be no development if the city enforced the recommendations.” However, Wilkinson said the 50 metre buffer zone was part of a study done for a different area.

“What’s never done for this area,” she said. “That would have had to be approved at the OMB hearing and it wasn’t.” The railway tracks are supposed to have a buffer of 30 metres for safety, but according to Hulaj there is only a three metre buffer set up. “If they don’t follow the 30 metre buffer, it’ll kill plans for light rail or make it really unsafe,” he said. “It’s an issue of safety but it would also eat into the development.

“It’s so disheartening to know people aren’t following the rules.” Wilkinson said that again, this would have had to be approved at the OMB hearing in order to take effect. “It’s too bad it wasn’t,” she said. ‘A LOT OF PROGRESS’ Adam Caldwell has been researching and helping the group to find ways to stop the development. “We’ve made a lot of progress,” he said. “People are learning a lot. If I thought it was a nimby (not in my backyard) issue I frankly wouldn’t bother with it, but the issues aren’t just about saving the trees.” He said the studies for the watershed are flawed and flooding could become an issue if this development goes ahead. “We want to be able to work with (KNL). This area is significant; we want them to give it a second thought.” Jim McKenzie, the Green Party’s contact in Carleton-Mississippi Mills said it’s sad nothing was done earlier to prevent the development. “We’ve just been trying to support the group,” said McKenzie. “The Beaver Pond is one of the most unique sites in Canada in its natural state. It’s been sitting there for more than a century – it should be maintained.” “An old growth forest can deal with climate change more effectively because of the biodiversity,” said Caldwell. Expropriation is the best option, said Hulaj, one the city should consider seriously. “Is a pathway in a conservation forest worth saving if the conservation forest is destroyed? One could say yes, at least we’ve saved something,” he said. “What can you say? It’s not a happy day when instead of doing the right thing and expropriating it, we’re saving a sliver.”

Flood fixes announced

SOLUTIONS Tousignant said the first thing the city will be doing is replacing all the sanitary system’s manhole covers. The old ones are perforated, which was meant to vent the system. “The sanitary sewer isn’t made to take outside flow,” said Tousignant. “The pressing need is to control the flow getting in the sanitary systems.” FLOOD, SEE 7

Sydney Hall’s house has flooded four times in 10 years. She was on hand during a public meeting with city officials about flood control measures for Kanata north on Tuesday, Sept. 7. “It’s not been fun,” said Hall, whose insurance company dropped her flood insurance after the second hit. “The last time I thought this was too much,” she said about having to do the cleaning process herself. Hall contacted a company that quoted her $15,000 to clean up the mess left by the fourth flood. She said she decided to do it herself instead. Hall has lived on Leacock Drive in Beaverbrook since 1985 and said she never had a problem with flooding until the city amalgamated. “We were there for 15 years with no problems.” The city has come up with solutions to the sanitary system’s flooding problem, said Eric Tousignant, who works for the city’s infrastructure services and community sustainability program. Clusters of houses on Leacock, Varley and Penfield drives flooded with sewage after the systems were overloaded during the heavy rainstorm last year. “That’s indicative we have a problem with our infrastructure,” said Tousignant.

Where there’s a will there’s a way

Learn ABCs of city budgeting

It’s been nearly two months since city lawyer Tim Marc threw a glass of cold water in the faces of those attempting to stop development on the Beaver Pond land. Nothing will stop KNL Development Ltd. from clear cutting two square kilometres of ecologically valuable land north of the Beaver Pond, said Marc during a public meeting held at the Mlacak Centre in July. Those were harsh words to hear. But there’s always a but Mr. Marc. Yes, the developer owns the land and city council gave approval for the 3,200-home development six years ago. But nothing is written in stone if the political will exists to save the South March Highlands. Some have suggested the City of Ottawa buy the land, but the cost is prohibitive — coming with a price tag of hundreds of millions of dollars if the land is sold at market value. Not likely to happen. The NCC is willing to consider adding some of the land as “fingers” to its Greenbelt, but they need a few years to first complete its Greenbelt policy. The Endangered Species Act, passed in 1998, unfortunately doesn’t void the land’s zoning. Which brings up a good question: What was the former regional planning council of Ottawa-Carleton thinking when it agreed to zone the land for development? But that is in the past, it’s the future that worries us. The Beaver Pond land can be saved — though it’s looking less and less likely as time moves on — it simply requires political will. The National Capital Commission could save the South March Highlands at a pen stroke (well maybe several pen strokes) by expropriating the land. It’s certainly saved enough cornfields, why not consider preserving some of Ottawa’s most valuable ecological land? But someone must hold their feet to the fire and apply public pressure on an arms-length federal commission. Where there’s a will there’s a way. The question is how much of a will exists to save the Beaver Pond lands?

Parents on hook for user fees To the editor: I saw the most recent editorial cartoon in the Kourier-Standard showing a parent struggling under user fees (re: editorial cartoon, Sept. 10, KKS). I have also noticed that most of the editorial cartoons that deal with taxes are antitax. Frankly, we can’t have it both ways. The money to pay for school supplies and activities has to come from somewhere. If we are not willing to pay for it on our tax bill, then we need to pay for it as user fees. Certainly paying for school supplies is one of our better long term investments as a society. The more educated our children are the more opportunities they will have as they grow older. I do believe we need to watch carefully both the level of user fees and the level of taxes. I am involved in my local school council,

an we have bought things we felt were necessary and turned down items we thought were unnecessary. It has certainly been an eye opener on the monetary presssures schools are under, and the sorts of things they need or want to buy. I would suggest that if we in Kanata want to have an impact on fees that we get involved in our school councils In this case, as in many others where we pay user fees, we can’t have our cake and eat it too. We either pay higher taxes, or pay user fees. The choice is ours by who we vote for. James Halls Kanata

To the editor: Forgive me for I simply do not understand! Each and every year our city council goes through an agonizing budget process whereby each department submits their wish list for the upcoming year outlining both operational and capital expenditures, real and anticipated. Council’s responsibility is to carefully review, question and approve what they consider to be acceptable. Over and above the approved budget, we have been witness to this council “borrowing” millions of dollars for unanticipated expenditures such as buses and now last minute infrastructure projects. How can this council not hang their respective heads in shame? To have to borrow millions of dollars in order to gain millions of dollars in infrastructure money from the federal government and rush to judgment to determine which projects are worthy seems more than a tad ridiculous especially given that property taxes increased by at least 4.9 percent this year. Add in all of the additional user fees and the increase can easily be pegged at 10 percent. Perhaps councillors don’t yet understand that there is only one taxpayer be it federal, provincial or municipal? One must question why there didn’t already exist an established priority list of projects that could have simply be referred to rather than throwing together last minute nonsense such as a judge’s tower or bus driver rest facilities for $1 million which, in and of itself, must be quite the rest facility! It is frustrating enough to realize that staff cobbled together this last minute to-do list without notice but to have council readily approve this nonsense and agree to borrow more than $6 million to complete it, is cause for grave concern. Council still doesn’t get it. Lame-duck status can’t happen soon enough!

said, where there is no freeboard between the top of the sewer and people’s basements. “There’s no play in this area.â€? By keeping the water on the street and not in the pipes, ooding should be minimized, said Tousignant. There was talk as to whether the grants

The city will have to start digging ditches to answer ooding concerns in Katimavik, recommends the city’s Katimavik ood investigation committee. The city needs to correct drainage problems in the Vanstone and Belleview drives area that led to the ooding of dozens of homes during the large rainstorm in July 2009, said Eric Tousignant, an engineer with the city’s infrastructure services. The only alternative is to put in a new storm sewer system that would cost each homeowner in the affected area $15,000 to $20,000, he said. Tousignant discussed the Katimavik ood investigation and the suggested ďŹ xes during a public meeting held at Katimavik Elementary School on Sept. 13. The city will open up ditches for proper drainage this winter and replace deďŹ cient driveway culverts and install new manhole covers in the fall, to prevent water from entering into the sanitary system.

Kanata Kourier-Standard - SEPTEMBER 16, 2010


City ofďŹ cials said all the sanitary manhole covers should be reďŹ tted by the end of this year. As well, Tousignant said residents need to avoid dumping grease and kitchen debris down sinks and toilets. “Just like your arteries your pipes get clogged up with grease.â€? Leacock Drive is one area that is on the frequent cleaning list since the pipes get blocked regularly. The city is planning on upgrading the sanitary pipe from Leacock Drive to Pentland Crescent. A new pipe will also be installed along Beaverbrook Road. City ofďŹ cials said this should be started in 2011, pending budget approval. “Be prepared to see more nuisance water on the street,â€? said Tousignant, who added in a storm like last year’s the water could rise halfway up driveways. “Water on the street is a good thing,â€? he said. “At least then it’s not in your basement.â€? Residents are still encouraged to get the sanitary basement pump and backwater ow valve to help ensure against future ooding. At least then if a backup occurred, “It wouldn’t be the neighbourhood backing into your basement,â€? said Tousignant. A catch basin cross-connected with the sanitary system was already disconnected on Varley Drive, which should help moderate the ow said Tousignant. The way things are set up at the moment, all the water ows to PenďŹ eld Drive, he

• Regrade Irwin Gate and Pickford Drive parks to provide storage space for excess rainwater. • Construct a stormwater management pond in Hewitt Park. • Construct new outlet sewers at the end of Belleview. • Uprade the storm sewer along Pickford Drive. City staff will seek budget approval for sewer work in 2011. In the Peary Way and Naismith Crescent areas, the city will install new manhole covers and repair pipes where needed, said Tousignant.


Kanata Kourier-Standard - SEPTEMBER 16, 2010


Tousignant said part of the problem in the Vanstone and Belleview area is the infilling of ditches by homeowers. “We can’t keep infilling ditches and expect the drainage to be the same,” said Tousignant. “The idea is we want to open the ditches.” The city wants to use the ditches to store excess rainwater and prevent it from entering homes and the sanitary sewer system, he added. The committee that investigated flooding in Katimavik is also recommending: • Constructing a new storm sewer outlet on Belleview.

Kanata Kourier-Standard - SEPTEMBER 16, 2010




Libby Marceau, 4, pals around with her brother Dalton, 8, at the table on her first day of school.

Libby looks back at her mom and laughs as her teacher Mrs. Oldfield reads a book to the class.

Learning with Libby A look into the start of a Kanata kid’s start of her school career JENNIFER MCINTOSH KOURIER-STANDARD The Marceaus, a military family who lives in the Katimavik area, were posted to Ottawa two years ago from the East Coast. Just like one might expect, their house is spotless and their three kids — Dalton, 8, Libby, 4, and Paige, 2, — have solidly-built routines that make morning and evening activities run fairly smoothly throughout the week. Each day has a menu so there is no guesswork at dinner time about what to feed the trio of rambunctious kids, whose blond hair, blue eyes and wide smiles would melt the heart of anyone. Mixed in with this routine is a genuine love of their family and children, something Michelle and Eric will certainly pass on to the newest member of their family, due in January. Sept. 14 was a different day for Libby, who now must get used to a different routine. Libby started her first day of school at Castle Frank Elementary, where she will join Dalton. The day started early, with the kids rising just after 6 a.m. Libby had been getting up with an alarm that played music for a week prior to school to get used to getting ready in time to catch the school bus from the Katimavik Child Care Centre. “She moves like molasses,” Michelle said. On her first day of school, Eric and Michelle were willing to let her stay home a bit later before catching her bus, but after a breakfast of cinnamon and raisin bagels and a banana, she was ready to go to daycare with her brother. Libby obviously looks up to Dal-

ton, a sweet little boy who takes good care of his sisters. He even stopped in the hall at school to give Libby a hug as she hung up her coat and put on her Barbie-patterned “inside shoes.” Drop off in the morning is complicated, with the older kids going to Katimavik Child Care Centre and Paige going to see her babysitter Doreen. The kids are loaded up in the van — complete with three car seats — Paige watches Mickey on the DVD player. Paige has been going to Doreen’s alone since July and is still getting used to the idea of being without Libby. Once Paige is dropped off Michelle heads over to Katimavik to check on the older two, who were dropped off by their father. Dalton walks the five minutes to school, but Libby will take the bus until she is in Grade 2. She sits about three rows back from the driver and even though view is obscured by the bus number on the window, she seems excited when she heads out to meet Mrs. Oldfield. The kids all line up at the front of the school and Libby is the tallest in the group — even the ones in senior kindergarten. She is decked out in a pink Minnie Mouse shirt her nana bought her, complete with pink hair clip and sweater to make the outfit. Normally Libby is really outgoing, but it is easy to tell that this milestone has made her a little shy. She keeps looking back at her mother and tires of having her photos taken pretty quickly. The two adults on hand were enlisted to hold the door for the train of four and five-year-olds on the way to their class.

The kids were all done up in their best outfits, which would probably stay clean for all of five minutes. As an adult, it’s hard not to imagine having a good time in this school, with its blue hallways and murals — complete with a frontfoyer sitting area patterned after Charlotte’s Web. The Marceaus really lucked out with the school; not knowing the area made it hard to pick. “Being in the military you kind of just have to rely on write-ups and stuff because you don’t know the neighbourhood,” Michelle said. She is happy with her choice, and the students look as happy as can be on their way to class. The hallways are a sort of controlled chaos as kids make their way into their respective classrooms. The principal Andrew Canham is right in the mix, hugging one student and opening a water bottle for another. One of the braver kindergarteners walks over to him and says, “My name is Alex.” Libby hangs up her Tinkerbell backpack and Michelle helps her on with her shoes, trading one set of pink for another. She heads into the classroom and sits on the circle. “Pick your favourite colour,” Mrs. Oldfield said. Libby picked purple, she really has two favourite colours pink and purple and when the family moves into their house next week she wants her room painted half and half. Mrs. Oldfield is the perfect kindergarten teacher. It’s easy to tell she’s an old pro when one of the kids wanders away from the circle from time to time and she firmly — but gently — guides him back. The kids sing some songs and


Mrs. Oldfield reads the book Don’t Let the Pigeon Ride the Bus. It’s easy to tell she is a pro at teaching because she captivates her junior audience.

learn to identify cards with their name and picture on them. Then comes a story called Don’t Let the Pigeon Ride the Bus. The story is a read along complete with puppet and the children are captivated. “You can’t drive a busm silly penguin,” Libby said. After the book is done, the kids head to their favourite activity centres. Libby chose the kitchen. “She really loves it, I think she is going to be a nurse or a chef,” Michelle said. “Either is fine with me.” Once things wind down, Michelle leaves Libby to her own devices

and heads back to the office to turn in her visitors’ badge. For the rest of the school year, Michelle and Eric will say their daily goodbyes to Libby at daycare. Everyone will get used to the new routine until Paige and then the baby will start their own school careers. Michelle and Eric hope to be able to stay in one place, but life in the military means they may have to move the kids. Wherever they end up, it’s easy to see this family will stick together and help each member through life’s little journeys. jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

Bridlewood man declares bid for Kanata South Rodney Tellez said he hopes he can be the change city council needs. The financial analyst for Zarlink Semiconductor said he decided to run for the Kanata South councillor seat after researching the other candidates and finding he couldn’t vote for anyone. “I thought, I don’t have to vote for these guys, I can run and make a change,” said Tellez. “I’m tired of city council; I’m tired of see- Rodney Tellez ing taxes wasted.” Originally from Nicaragua, Tellez has lived in the west end of Ottawa for 20 years, with the last five spent in Bridlewood with his two children. “My roots are pretty strong here,” he said. A former member of the naval reserves, he said he’s not afraid of a challenge. “It teaches you to be a leader but also how to be part of a team,” said Tellez. “It teaches you how to take on challenges. Maybe you won’t succeed but at least you try.”

CRIME FIGHTER Tellez said a pressing problem in Kanata south is the amount of youth crime. “Kanata south has an issue of crime because the kids don’t have things to do,” he said. He wants to see more affordable programs available for youths in the city to keep them from falling into criminal activities and drugs. “The city charges youth groups for rent,” Tellez said. “I want to look into not charging them, or if we have to, only charging the very minimum.” The City of Quebec has a lottery where the money raised goes towards funding youth groups and activities, he said. “Why can’t we have one in Ottawa?” He also wants to see what can be done about getting a pool for the Eva James Memorial Community Centre. “They have been promised a pool in the last couple of elections,” he said. “I would like to see them get one.” He said he’s working with the centre to see if funds raised during his campaign can go towards acquiring the pool. WASTE OF MONEY “The city has a spending problem,” said Tellez, who wants to see where more money can be saved.

One of the areas he wants to see changed is the tree planting program. He said a number of people have complained that when the greenery arrives, it’s already dead or dying. An option, he said, is to partner with a

nursery and have people choose their own trees. “This way trees won’t be dying during the delivery process. The city saves money and it still works.” He said fiscal management is the biggest issue with council. “I’m not afraid of numbers,” said Tellez, who budgets for seven business units at

Zarlink. He also wants to see the community’s needs listened to and acted upon. More citizen government is needed, he said. “I will listen to the people. I want to give them hope on city council.” He said his platform is built upon what the community needs, something others in the running aren’t listening to. “That’s why I’m running,” said Tellez. “I’m fed up.” TRANSPORTATION He wants to see bus services improved in Kanata south and the city. “I drive to work because the bus service is not convenient,” said Tellez, who wants to see services to Kanata south expanded and made faster. Tellez said he also wants to see parking available downtown for motorcycles. “There’s no parking downtown for them,” he said. “I have creative ideas,” said Tellez. “It’s not more of the same old, same old. I’m not a politician; I’m a regular guy.” Also running for the Kanata South councillor seat are Marc Favreau, Aaron Helleman, Allan Hubley, Perry Simpson and Michel Tardif.

Kanata Creative Kindergarten

JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD Lili Weemen threw her hat into the ring for the Kanata North councillor seat on Friday, Sept. 10. Weemen, who has run in a federal election in Mississauga South, then in La Beauce, Quebec and later for mayor of Toronto, said the high-tech ward needs to be where Lili Weemen change takes place. “People in Kanata north will be more receptive to my ideas because it’s a high-tech city,” she said. “They are more likely to be innovative. Everything that seems right, they are less likely to be critical; they are more likely to adopt things that are right.” Weemen, a sales and services associate with the YMCA, lives in the downtown Ottawa core, but said she plans on moving to Kanata north soon. Weemen, who is also a volunteer on Clive Doucet’s mayoral campaign, has lived all over the world and said she wants to see Ottawa adopt systems that work around the world. “I’ve lived in many countries, I have a very international perspective,” she said. “My ideas are a little different from others;


they aren’t very localized. Whatever works, right? I pick things up from other places; you always try to adopt a better system.” OVERHAUL TRANSIT Weemen said the public transit system needs an overhaul. She said she wants to see weekly transit passes brought in since most people are paid weekly or biweekly and monthly passes are expensive. She said this is more economical if people have to take time off work as well. “Transit passes, when they were cheap, it was fine to pay monthly,” Weemen said. “Now it’s pricey. If you have to take a week or two weeks off work, this way you have the flexibility. Weekly is very convenient, it wouldn’t be that much money. You wouldn’t lose money if you take a week off.” Weemen said having free transit before 7 a.m. and after 6 p.m. heading from the suburbs to downtown would also relieve some of the rush hour congestion, as would a free shuttle that would run along Wellington, Elgin, Summerset and Kent streets after 7 a.m. This would require only two buses, which would cost around $500,000 each she said. “That would encourage people to leave their cars at home,” she said. “You would only need two buses to do the continual loop. Downtown Ottawa is ridiculous. You go in circles. But that would be replaced by the free shuttle.” She said she would get this money by halting the downtown tunnel. “I don’t want in a city where there’s less than one million to have underground rail. We have to have above-ground

light rail. Why would you be in the darkness when you can see the beautiful city?” She said digging a tunnel is costly to start and maintain and the money would be better served when put towards a better bus system. “Public transportation is not a profitable business,” she said. “What I suggest is stop digging the tunnels. We need better auditing; there’s huge money leakage in the city. Chop one consultant only and it’s enough to pay for one bus.” TAX BREAK Weemen said she wants to see residents receive a tax break for the next two years after the continual hikes that have been imposed. “We have to live a frugal life,” she said. “After that last hike I want to give people a break for two years. After that we carry on.” Weemen said she wants to see more stimulus money going to young entrepreneurs with strong business proposals. “How it’s used is very doubtful,” she said. “Whatever has been spent has been spent pretty lousily. We have to advertise wisely so that residents with great ideas can access the funds. “We don’t need fancy projects because fancy projects, you pay for them. But we have to encourage innovation and ideas.” Weemen said she will not be using signs or a website to promote her ideas, instead relying on doorto-door canvassing, all-candidates meetings and media. “In Kanata we have to be leaders,” she said. “As a high-tech city we have to be leaders.”

There are few things more Canadian than enjoying a refreshing pint of beer. This is even truer when that beer is brewed with fresh hops from your own back yard. The Ottawa Valley has a rich history of beer making, using time-honoured traditions and fresh ingredients. This weekend, residents can experience the true taste of March Township and surrounding areas at the Craft Beer Tasting event at Pinhey’s Point Historic Site. Local beer connoisseur and sommelier Geoff Skeggs will help you explore the area’s breweries, which have a variety of ales and lagers with rich tastes and amazing selections. “People are always surprised at the quality and variety of local beers,” said Skeggs. “There has been a great resurgence in beer styles, and local breweries are really pushing the boundaries.” Skeggs will lead a craft beer tasting at Pinhey’s Point Historic Site on Saturday, Sept.18 beginning at 7 p.m. to expose people to the different styles and brands of beers they can find in the Ottawa area. “We’re striving to showcase beer on the Hundred Mile Menu,” explained Skeggs, which refers to beer brewed within one hundred miles of Ottawa. Skeggs leads a beer tasting at the historic site every year and this summer decided to include beer from Prince Edward County to add some variety. “We’re trying products that have never been used before,” said Skeggs. “We chose Prince Edward County because they produce the hops that are used in the brewing process.” The tasting will also include beer from local brewers such as Heritage Brewing, Scotch Irish Brewing, Kichesippi Beer

Company and Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company. It also features special tastings one can’t find just anywhere, like Heritage Brewing’s Dark Lager New Hop Edition which is brewed using local hops from Prince Edward County. “The brewery only gets enough local hops to make one batch a year, and only ship small quantities to stores, so it’s very unique,” said Skeggs, who has secured a supply in order to share its unique taste with beer lovers at Pinhey’s Point. The tasting will also pair the beer with samples of meats and cheeses that go best with different styles of ales and lagers. “Every beer is food friendly – it’s not just good before the meal, but great with food all the time,” he said. “Some beer even pairs better with food than wine,” said Skeggs, who also teaches the beer course in the Algonquin College Sommelier Program. “It’s more of a European tradition that people in North Americans haven’t yet been a part of.” Ultimately, Skeggs hopes that people learn something new about beer. “People tend to be misguided to think all lagers are light in colour and low in alcohol and ales are dark.” “The fact is there is so much variety in beer styles that colour and flavour is not dictated by the family a beer belongs to, more of the style within that family.” Tickets to the Craft Beer Tasting are $35. The event will take place at 270 Pinhey’s Point Rd. in Dunrobin on Saturday, Sept. 18th at 7 p.m. All participants must be of legal drinking age and are encouraged to register in advance.

A Purposeful Journey: author shares experience Kanata author Barbara Carriere is an inspiring woman; at age 59 she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, summiting after only seven days. Carriere and four other grandmothers climbed Kilimanjaro in 2007 to raise awareness of the plight of grandmothers in Africa. The sixth member saw them off and met them at the bottom of the mountain. Affiliated with the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign run by the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Carriere’s group calls themselves the Kilimanjaro Grannies. Carriere will be giving a presentation to the Twisted Sisters Book Club on Saturday, Sept. 25 about the book, Kilimanjaro: A Purposeful Journey, she and the other grandmothers put together to chronicle their experiences. A lifelong dream to climb the mountain, Carriere said she never thought she’d accomplish the feat. “I became older and started doubting whether I could do it. When I saw an article in the paper and then another about this lady going to climb Kilimanjaro, I said to myself, ‘Hey I’m a grandmother. I’m in the same age group. If I don’t do it now I won’t get the chance again.’ It was a wonderful adventure.�

“The book is a coffee table book,� said the Kanata Lakes woman. “We have each chosen roughly 10 photos each representing the key moments that touched us in a particular way about our climb.� The book discusses their difficulties, challenges, rewards and lessons learned, she said. “Every fall I invite a local author to speak to the book club,� said Catherine Faubert, coordinator of Twisted Sisters. “Barbara motives women to make their dreams come true.� The book club meets periodically over the year to discuss the novels read. Instead of being given a list of books to read, members pick stories that fall under a theme. The most recent theme was books made into movies. “We’re not a formal book club,� said Faubert, who lives in Bells Corners. “We try to do something a little unique.� Women from all across Ottawa take part in the book club, which meets on the last Saturday of every month. Carriere’s presentation will take place at the Heron Community Centre from 1 to 3 p.m. and is open to the public.

Seeton looking for Kanata North council seat JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD Kanata business owner Jeff Seeton registered for the Kanata North councillor race on Friday, Sept. 10. Seeton, who ran against incumbent Marianne Wilkinson in the last municipal election, signed up just after noon on the last day of registration. “There’s a lot of issues,” said the 40year-old for signing up. “Right off the top the inability for council to get anything done is at the front end of that. Candidates at the council level are keeping their mouths quiet and I don’t think we’re seeing the whole picture of what’s happening in council.” Seeton created, a national recruiting and consulting agency four years ago, which is based in Kanata. Aside from his business background, the married father of two also has experience in politics. “I’ve been a political consultant, worked on federal legislation, municipal bylaws,” said the former president of the Village Green Kanata Town Centre and vice chair of the Kanata Food Cupboard. Seeton has lived in Kanata north for 10 years, in both Village Green and Kanata

Lakes. He said he believes the citizens of Kanata north are not being properly represented on the issues that matter most to them. “Ottawa city council needs to be able to work together to generate new ideas and new ways of doing business,” said Seeton. “We cannot afford to have another four years like the last four years.” ‘MAKES ME SICK’ Seeton said the entire issue surrounding the Beaver Pond “makes me sick.” He said he believes Kanata north needs someone to lead the charge in protecting environmentally sensitive areas. “Kanata North has some of the most significant environmentally sensitive and historically significant land in all of Eastern Ontario,” he said. “The fight is on to save as much of this land as possible but we have been fighting a losing battle. This is because of the agreement that our current city councillor made with the developers in years past. Her decision and the agreement lacked vision and now these environmentally sensitive lands may be lost because of it. We need to have someone new take on this fight and go in a new direction. “This election is about the future of our

Warning: phoney city sales-pitches CITY OF OTTAWA The city is warning residents to be vigilant of door-to-door salespeople making false claims about the quality of drinking water. The city has received several complaints from residents who have been contacted by salespeople of water-filtration or treatment systems and provided incorrect information pertaining to water quality. The city reminds residents that Ottawa’s drinking water is completely safe and of the highest quality. City employees do not contact residents to sell products or ser-

vices. Except for city emergency situations, any visits requiring access to homes or businesses by city staff are scheduled in advance. All employees have city-issued photo identification cards. Residents who are directly contacted by persons claiming to be city employees for city business are asked to check identification and if concerns remain contact the city prior to allowing access. Residents are also asked to report any suspicious, unsolicited calls or visits. The city posts its drinking water quality analysis results on our website,

community and everything we hold dear about it. We need a new leader and a new way of doing business if we are to prosper in the future.” STOP THE TAX Seeton said council needs to limit the tax increases imposed on residents. “Council today seems to think they’re spending city money. But they’re spending my money, your money; we need a different perspective.” He said his business background helps him when dealing with money. “Dollars and cents mean a lot and the way that we spend out money just doesn’t make sense.” The biggest example he said was the cancellation of the north-south light rail project where the city paid out $37 million. “They just threw it off like it was nothing,” said Seeton. “It’s a great deal of money that could have paid for many other things. It could have bought the (Beaver Pond) land from the developer.” Also running for the Kanata North councillor seat are Herntz Golmann, Hal Watson, Lili Weemen and Marianne Wilkinson.


Jeff Seeton is running for the Kanata North council seat for the second time. Seeton, who lives in Kanata Lakes, said Kanata north has “a lot of issues.”

Where moms can connect Carp woman launches forum: momcafe Ottawa JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD Carp woman Tara Azulay is launching momcafe Ottawa, a forum to connect and inspire women. “Number one, there’s more women in the work place,” said Azulay, who used to live in Dunrobin. “Everyone’s working longer hours than ever before. And most still take the traditional role of cooking, cleaning and raising a family. It’s hard to pack all of that into 24 hours a day and still take care of yourself.” Azulay said momcafe will bring positive and inspiring role models to speak to attendees. On Sept. 24, Azulay will launch

momcafe Ottawa with guest speakers Korey Kealey, founder of Food Thought, and Dr. Joel Lee Villeneuve, clinical director of Optihealth Wellness Centre. “Their experiences and successes prove the challenges of motherhood are no longer obstacles to having a fulfilling career, business or community involvement,” she said. “It is up to each individual to choose how to use their advice or experience.” The forum is open to women from all over Ottawa where they can enjoy lattes, good converstation and inspirational speakers while children up to 12 years are supervised at an onsite childcare area for a

nominal fee, said Azulay. “Basically this gives moms the chance to network with other moms from all walks of life,” she said. “It’s an inexpensive way to connect with other moms.” The first meeting will take place at Viva Loca on Sept. 24 at 1233 Wellington St. West. Tickets are $37 for non-members and $31 for members (plus HST). A portion of the meeting proceeds is donated to a variety of charities dedicated to helping moms, children and youth.

Kanata kids join OLO’s Turandot children’s choir JESSICA CUNHA KOURIER-STANDARD Five Kanata-area children were chosen to perform in the children’s choir for the opera, by Opera Lyra Ottawa and directed by Brian Deedrick. “I was really, really happy,” said Phoebe Santini, 14. “Out of a lot of kids that tried out only 16 of us made it.” The Bridlewood resident was told to try out by her singing instructor and said the experience so far has been amazing. “Right away I was like I want to do this so badly, I want to have this experience,” she said about learning of the part. “I have learned so much and I have met so many great people too. Another Bridlewood resident, Sara Rushforth, said she’s enjoyed opera since she was young so having the chance to perform in Turandot has been a dream come true. “This is such an awesome opportunity,” said the 15-year-old. “I’ve learned a lot about the whole business of opera.” Puccini’s Turandot is a dark tale of a bewitching princess and her young suitor, who must answer three riddles or face death. LONG HOURS Rehearsals can run into the small hours of the morning leading up to productions. At the Sept. 8 rehearsal, the children’s choir did a run-through from 5:30 until 11:30 p.m. Santini, who just started Grade 9 at Canerbury High School, said the rehearsal schedule can be challenging with the late nights and long hours. “You play such a big part no matter how small the character.

You realize that we have such a big role. You have to give credit to everyone there because everyone is doing such a great job.” Rushforth, a Grade 10 student at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School, said the amount of work that goes into a production is incredible to witness. “Seeing what actually happens behind the NAC – it’s amazing what goes on getting the productions ready,” she said. “It’s just incredible.” Eleven-year-old Molly Drinnan agreed. “I never knew what it was like putting on a show so big. Everything is so exciting with all the performers, make up and hair and costumes. The whole thing is so exciting.” Drinnan, who has sung since she was three years old, said everyone they work with has been incredible. “I thought that Mr. Deedrick was so much fun and had a lot of good ideas and involved the kids so much,” said Drinnan, whose dream is to become an opera singer. “Mrs. Brooks our voice teacher is incredible, just so much fun. She’s very good with kids. I like her a lot, she’s fantastic.” Before taking to the stage, the chorus warms up for 15 minutes with breathing exercises, scales and practicing the songs. “I actually like the whole point of going up on stage and showing off that kids can have a really strong singing voice,” said Santini. “Just as kids we have our own little story going on.” FUTURE ROLES Santini said she has enjoyed the experience so much she is thinking of auditioning for another role next year.


Phoebe Santini, children’s chorus music director Sara Brooks, Julia Loiselle and Sara Rushforth take part in a dress rehersal for Opera Lyra Ottawa’s performance of Turandot.

“I do really like this kind of opera genre, it’s really fun,” she said. “I’m thinking of auditioning next year. I think I’m going to keep going with this (genre) for a bit and then try different ones along the way.” Rushforth said she also hopes to continue with opera. “I’ve always liked opera since I

was a little kid and I’d really like to continue it. It’s been a really amazing experience and I hope to have many opportunities like it.” The children’s choir performs along side acclaimed Canadian tenor Richard Margison and New York soprano Lori Phillips. “I’ve learned so much just through watching the big stars,”

said Rushforth. “It’s such an honour to perform with such big stars.” Other area children performing in the choir are Julia Loiselle and Matteo Belloni. Turandot is playing at the National Arts Centre from Sept. 11 to 18. For more information, visit

alizing that nothing lasts forever. “As a child you are not really concerned with much of anything other than the moment you are living in,” said Moffatt. “We wanted to re-capture that perspective of looking at the world through the innocence of a child’s eyes.

part in the history of mankind, from religion to politics, from art to sociology and mythology. I try to convey in each painting, through colour and texture, the spirituality, the mystery and the richness of this magnificent new culture.” The artwork is divided in two parts: the first one explores the mysterious symbolism and spirituality of Pre-Columbian cultures of America, where every action and every thought was symbolic. The second part deals with the historic moment of the declaration of independence. The exhibition runs until Oct. 3 at the Ottawa School of Art main gallery in the ByWard Market. Admission is free.

Kanata trio Rothwell and Moffatt released their debut album, Wonder Away, on Sept. 2.

Ottawa School of Art to host exhibit for bicentennial of Mexico’s independence

EVERY SATURDAY 8 a.m.–3 p.m.

Now you don’t have to go far to buy local!

The debut album from Rothwell and Moffatt, Wonder Away, was released on Sept. 2. Produced by Ross Murray and recorded at Happy Rock Studio in Wakefield, Quebec, Wonder Away is a diverse collection of songs and features some of Ottawa’s finest musical talent. The album includes original songs as well as cover versions and interpretations of some truly classic and not often heard tunes like Pearly Shells and Free to Be…You and Me. Wonder Away captures the essence of Rothwell and Moffatt’s strong vocal harmonies, sing-along melodies and the band’s ability to re-invent songs in their own unique way. Rothwell and Moffatt, a Kanata-based trio, is a musical partnership that began over 10 years ago. Sisters Stephanie and Emily Rothwell, along with Jeff Moffatt, have a musical bond that is rooted in a shared love of music. All three possess deep musical roots and to them, no musical territory is out of bounds. The band crosses the boundaries of rock, folk and country effortlessly. “The original idea was to record a children’s album,” Moffatt said. “As we got deeper into it, it evolved into a broader album, more suited for the entire family. Regardless of age, I think people will have a connection to these songs.” Wonder Away is a collection of songs that evoke the innocence of youth, endless summers and the melancholy of re-

JENNIFER MCINTOSH KOURIER-STANDARD The mayor’s race has heated up over the past few months, with 20 people ready to throw their names in the hat for Ottawa’s top spot at the close of nomination deadline on Sept. 10. The three front runners have been current mayor, Larry O’Brien, former mayor and MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean Jim Watson and Capital ward councillor Clive Doucet. The three top dogs are left after Bay Coun. Alex Cullen dropped out

of the race to seek re-election in his own ward at an announcement on Aug. 31. Cullen — a strong proponent of campaigning without the aid of corporate or union donations — cited a lack of campaign funds and a desire to make sure Terry Kilrea didn’t win the seat as reasons for deserting his mayoral campaign. Jim Watson’s campaign has been focusing on O’Brien’s record. At his campaign launch at Tudor Hall, Watson called the mayor’s four-year term as “chaos.” Watson also promised to build an

KYBA helps 12,500 athletes over 25 years KANATA YOUTH BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION The Kanata Youth Basketball Association has been serving the Kanata area for more than 25 years. During that time period 12,500 young athletes have developed through the offered programs. The KYBA has developed the basketball abilities of 655 rising athletes aged between five to 18 years in the past year alone. Both house league and competitive programs are offered and over 1,000 games have been played in the past season. This association doesn’t only cater to athletes but also to coaches and referees. Finally, the association promotes post-secondary education in the community by providing annual scholarships to four players. This year the KYBA is looking at increasing enrolment in all of its programs and at recruiting even more volunteers. There is still time to register players both by mailing in forms found on and at the inperson registration session on Sept. 18 at All Saints Catholic High School from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 356908

east-west transit line on time and on budget. He has also spoken out for borough council’s, which would place more power in the hands of ward councillors, and free up the mayor to focus on city-wide issues. O’Brien has promised to take control of salaries at city hall and has returned to the promise of “zero means zero.” He pledged to attempt a zero increase this time around and asked residents to vote for like-minded council candidates. Doucet is campaigning on transit, saying we can have light rail in four

years instead of 10 or 20. He also said he would not accept donations from corporate or union sponsors — mirroring Cullen’s stance of “one vote, one cheque.” Andy Haydon announced his candidacy for the mayoral race at a press conference on Sept. 10. It was expected that Haydon’s campaign would focus on his bus rapid transit plan. Haydon says an effective BRT plan could be funded for $5 million — about half or a third of the price of the current LRT plan. Aside from Haydon, three other

people put their names on the mayoral ballot at the last minute, bringing the total to 20 candidates. Cesar Bello, Idris Ben-Tahir, Clive Doucet, Joseph Furtenbacher, Robert G. Gauthier, Andy Haydon, Robert Larter, Robin Lawrance, Vincent M. Libweshya, Fraser Liscumb, Daniel Joseph Lyrette, Mike Maguire, Larry O’Brien, Julio Pita, Sean Ryan, Michael St. Arnaud, Jane Scharf, Charlie Taylor, Jim Watson and Samuel Wright are all hoping to sit at the head of the council table. jennifer.mcintosh@

Stallions blow lead against 73’s Kemptville scores three goals in third-period win

Kanata goalie Travis Wilkins prepares to turn aside a blast from Kemptville’s Jacob Clark during both teams’ first regular season game Central Hockey League 2010-2011 season at the KRC on Sept. 10. The Stallions built up a 3-0 lead before seeing the 73’s come back to score four goals in a 4-3 loss.


Entering the second half of the third period with a 3-1 lead, it looked like the Kanata Stallions had their season-opening game all wrapped up against the Kemptville 73’s. That couldn’t have been any further from the case. Soon after the half-way mark, Kemptville forwards Brandon Lesway, Alex Brenton, and Daniel Lacroix scored within 2:21 of each other to turn a two-goal deficit into a 4-3 73’s win at the Kanata Recreational Complex during Day 1 of the CHL Showcase. “We kept attacking,” 73’s head coach Pat Malloy said of his team’s philosophy after scoring the equalizer.

“We weren’t complacent with the tie. We continued to work and get ourselves where we wanted to be.” The Stallions pressed hard at the end of the game to tie the score, but right winger Ryan Donnelly couldn’t covert on two glorious chances – one a partial breakaway and the other a one-timer. The Stallions jumped out to an early lead on a power-play goal by defenceman Carl-Philippe Ouimet 13 minutes into the game and looked like they might cruise from there. Kanata then tallied two more markers on the man advantage early in the second frame as Donnelly and first-round pick Spencer Cobbold made it 3-0. The Stallions went

three-for-eight on the power play in total. Cobbold’s first-ever CHL goal spelled the end of Morgan Hudson’s night in the Kemptville net. Hudson turned over the puck behind the 73’s net allowing Cobbald to score. He was replaced by Ben Curley after allowing three goals on 10 shots. “We thought it was a momentum changer putting (Curley) in,” Malloy said, adding that Curley will start on Sept. 11 against the Pembroke Lumber Kings as originally planned. “It sent the message that we needed to be better. It worked out.” As is often the case, the move ignited the rest of the team. Brenton immediately got the 73’s on the board two minutes later, scoring on Stallions netminder Travis Wilkins. While Malloy thought the goaltending switch helped his team, Dewan said the Stal-

lions lost the contest because of their own errors. Failing to clear the puck, a poor line change, and giving up a breakaway on the winning goal all contributed to the successive third-period goals. “It was our mistakes that cost us the game,” Dewan said. “These are things we can work on.” Although Malloy wasn’t pleased with some aspects of his team’s play – namely their penalty killing – he liked the way his players stuck together. Defenceman Connor McGrath said pulling out a victory in that fashion can only bode well for the rest of the season. “It sets the tempo,” he said. “It makes you believe in yourself and it gives you more confidence.”

It may still be two years away, but the pressure is already on the Kanata Stallions. Having missed the CHL playoffs in consecutive seasons, and exiting in the first round in each of the previous three, management wants to make sure their team is ready for the 2012 Fred Page Cup. The Stallions were awarded the national junior hockey tournament in April, becoming the first Ottawa-based team to host it. While playoff champions of the CHL, Quebec Junior AAA Hockey League, and Maritime Junior A Hockey League gain entries to the event, the host team also gets an automatic invite. But the Stallions don’t intend to roll out the welcome mat. “Every year is important, but next year is obviously a lot bigger because we know we’re in the Fred Page Cup,” Stallions general manager Lou Nistico said. “We want to be in the top four next year in the league. “This is a big year because you don’t want to miss the playoffs in a year before the Fred Page Cup.” To go from 35 points – good for second-last place in 2009-10 – to a playoff

first-round pick Spencer Cobbold – and improved play from returning forwards Visit: Kyle Rankin (17 goals, 25 assists) and Ryan Donnelly (19 goals, 27 assists) should make the Stallions a better team.

Team plans ground work for big tourney

spot this season to an elite team next year isn’t the easiest of tasks. Coupled with having the youngest team in the league last year, Nistico chose to recruit players for the 2010-11 season with a two-year plan in mind – eyeing 2012. Nistico brought in defenceman CarlPhillippe Ouilet, who then convinced him to sign former Quebec Ramparts centre Nick Samoluk once he was cut from the Quebec league team. Also added were player from far-off locations like defencemen Will Leedy (Dallas), Taylor Weilert (Rochester, N.Y.), Alex Powell (Newfoundland), and Tim Kavanaugh (Thunder Bay, Ont.), plus right winger and Cleveland native Phillip Nasca, who led team in preseason scoring with five goals and four assists. “This is the year we brought these guys in and we want to develop them and get them ready for the Fred Page,” Nistico said. “That’s what we’re doing. We brought these guys in for two years.” While putting making all the various pieces fit together in a drastic makeover is undoubtedly tricky, the tournament has made finding them much easier. “Some of the kids call us because they knew that we had the Fred Page Cup,” Nistico said. “We got lots of calls all year and we’ll get lots more calls next year. That’s a bonus to get the Fred Page but you still need to go out and see these kids play and make sure they’re capable of playing in our league.” All the additions – which include 2010

Jason Dupuis Shapes Up Ottawa, One Body At A Time

(New members train for FREE until October 2nd, 2010)

Owners of the Canadian Sport Martial Arts Academy, Jason Dupuis and Jenn Morgan, are looking to shape up Ottawa once again! They are looking for people who want to get into shape that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how, people who need that extra little bit of motivation and people who want to break that plateau that they just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get over! The Xtreme Body Transformation Course will bring you health and ďŹ tness to new heights and will motivate you to go beyond where you thought you could go. Mr. Jason Dupuis, who is a multi-time National Team member in Kick Boxing, has been practicing Martial Arts for 12 years and who has been an Elite Personal Trainer at the CSMA for the past 5 years, has partnered up with Ms. Jenn Morgan. Jenn is also an Elite Personal Trainer who has had 15+ years in the ďŹ tness industry and has helped hundreds of people get in shape and take their health to a new level. Together, they run

the prestigious Xtreme Body Transformation Course and will help you get into the best shape of your life! Mr. Dupuisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 8-week XBT course combines a well structured weight training program, various types of cardio kick boxing and ďŹ tness classes and an easy to follow nutritional plan to create the healthiest and fastest body changing experience ever to hit the Ottawa area. Jason Dupuisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team of highly trained and motivational coaches will ensure that this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal to look and feel better by losing fat and building muscle, will not only be met and exceeded but will transform your body into a whole new you for 2010 and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since 2003, more than 1200 Ottawa residents have taken our 8-week course and have averaged 13 pounds lost, 3.5 inches off their waist and an amazing drop of 7% body fat,â&#x20AC;? explains Mr. Dupuis â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our XBT members have been so happy with their results that

most have stayed on with our ongoing programs and have completely changed their lifestyle and look.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our program welcomes people who have not worked out in 20 years, have never touched a dumbbell nor tried any type of kick boxing before. But on the other hand, our program is also for people who are sick of the standard gym scenario for getting in shape, or the athlete who is looking to get an extra push over the plateau they have hit. Our coaches personalize all plans to suit the membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goals and ďŹ tness levels,â&#x20AC;? says Ms. Morgan. By combining a healthy diet with consistent, structured weight raining program and the World Class Cardio Kick Boxing classes, members gain massive motivation to make extreme changes in their health and bodies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone works as a team to achieve their desired goals. It is amazing to see the camaraderie that goes into each memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success,â&#x20AC;?

says Ms. Morgan If you are sick and tired of trying to motivate yourself to a better body and a healthier lifestyle, you are simply a phone call away from the most electrifying eight weeks of your life. Do not spend another minute trying to ďŹ gure out which diet to try next, or which new cardio machine will burn the most calories. What you need is Jason Dupuisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; XBT course to tear you off the couch, whip you into shape and create a life long ďŹ tness fanatic out of you. 2010 is your year to exceed your ďŹ tness and health goals and to let the XBT course completely transform your mind and body! â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am always looking for a healthier, stronger and faster way to achieve even greater results with my XBT members,â&#x20AC;? Mr. Dupuis says. The Canadian Sport Martial Arts Academy will be hosting a FALL 2010 XBT course starting Saturday October 2, 2010 in the West end at 100 Walter Baker place (the Kanata Rec. Centre). This

extremely affordable, highly valuable and life changing course will sell out very quickly due to the limited amount of participants that Coaches Jason Dupuis and Jenn Morgan will accept this fall. The XBT is designed to educate and transform your look, no matter how old or out of shape you are. Our personal trainers will light the training ďŹ re under your butt all the way to your ďŹ tness goals. Word is spreading quickly about Jason Dupuisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new and improved XBT program and you do not want to wait until the last minute to register because you will miss out! All pre-registered members can start training right away for FREE until the XBT starts. If you would like to be a part of the new XBT starting October 2, 2010, please call Head Coaches Jenn Morgan or Jason Dupuis at 613-831-8085 to obtain additional information and to book your spot in the fall program.

Bantam Knights defeat Redskins KANATA KNIGHTS The Kanata Knights Bantam team braved the wind, rain and the Nepean Redskins to win their third straight game with a 15-8 victory on Wednesday, Sept. 8. A strong defence, particularly in the first half, kept the Knights in the game. Harrison da Costa, Mike Cotton, Nick Porter and Jutice Maci led the charge with four solo tackles each. An interception by Carlo Cano and fumble recoveries by Jacob Nicholson and Harrison da Costa put the Kanata Knights firmly in the driver’s seat. The Bantam’s offence dominated the second half led by quarterback Nick Gorgichuck who rushed for 82 yards including a two yard QB keep for a touchdown. Running back Jeffry Marcus rushed for 79 yards and scored the

second touchdown in the game. Receivers Nick Krzniak, Brad Hills, John Ladurantaye and Nick Gorgichuck combined for an additional 127 yards. A safety in the fourth quarter added the additional point. Come and cheer on your Kanata Knights Bantams at their next game on Sunday, Sept. 19 at Robert J. Barr Field (KRC) against the Canterbury Mustangs. Kick off at 3 p.m. TYKES The Knights potent offence continued to be a force over yet another tyke opponent; however, the Nepean Redskins won behind running back Terell Brown, with a 5738 score. Running back Connor Ogilvie steam-rolled right by the Redskins defence again and again amassing 205 yards, seven first downs and


Plus, with the constant communication between periods, ensuring consistency usually isn’t a major concern. “For the most part, guys are able to adapt enough and see what the other guy is calling so they know whether their standard needs to be lowered or increased,” Loney said, who worked the Kanata Stallions-Kemptville 73’s game later that night. While Abrams recognized the additional expenses the league must incur to hire more referees, he said

scoring three touchdowns. Kanata’s offensive line also made big holes and key blocks for their power running backs Sutton Allard and Simon Bricker each got a touchdown, while wide receiver Shabach Kerr got a touchdown on a sweet reverse play that gained 20 yards. The defence had their work cut out for them but they remained aggressive with bone crushing tackles from Ethan Hards, Kane Obas, Sebastien Vienneau, Britton Quirk, Alex Newell and Jarod Wakeman. Jarod was outstanding with four solo and six assisted tackles along with two fumble recoveries. Overall, the Kanata Knights showed great potential. They look forward to playing their next game, which is a big one against the Gatineau Vikings on Sunday Sept. 19 at the Kanata Recreation Complex.

it is the perfect opportunity for the league to help develop more high-quality officials. He added another referee on the ice means more calls will be the correct one. Nepean Raider head coach and general manager Peter Goulet agrees. “I think it’s one of the best things we did all summer,” he said. “It helps get all the stuff behind the play. It eliminates a lot of cheap stuff and guys getting hurt.”

Local Kanata girl Lindsay Cook came home from Richmond, B.C with a silver medal from the Team Ontario Bantam Girls Canadian Baseball Championship, losing a nail-biting 5-4 to British Columbia.Although the loss was disappointing, the girls were extremely excited to bring home the silver. “It is disappointing not to have won the gold but I’m thrilled to have won silver,” said Cook. “It has been a summer of a life time.”

Transit hot topic for Haydon: files for mayor Andrew Haydon, former regional chair and the man credited for building Ottawa’s transitway has entered the mayoral race. Haydon plans to run on the issue of light rail, calling it a waste of our resources. He is in favour of the downtown tunnel — but for bus rapid transit, not light rail. Haydon said using the tunnel for bus rapid transit would leave the city with a $65 million surplus—which could Andrew Haydon be used to increase service to Stittsville and the rural areas. Haydon’s support base would come from the west end as he is credited with building the Nepean Sportsplex and the Nepean National Equestrian Park. He was regional chair of Ottawa-Carleton from 1978 to 1991. He was also reeve of Nepean Township and briefly served as the first mayor of the City of Nepean in 1978.

Kanata Kourier-Standard - SEPTEMBER 16, 2010



Haydon is well-known and has a park overlooking the Ottawa River named after him, as well council chambers at Ottawa City Hall. Haydon chose to announce his candidacy at Ben Franklin Place — the former Nepean city hall, because he said his campaign will be about fiscal responsibility and leading Ottawa to Nepean’s debt free example. “I will not be a one-issue candidate,” Haydon said. “But LRT will be the cornerstone of the budget and saving that money will be the best way to move Ottawa to a debt-free model.” He said he would also like to see O.C. Transpo turned into a commission of elected officials who would work to see morale improved. “I think anyone in this community can tell you that O.C. Transpo is mismanaged,” he said. The last time Haydon tried a revival of his political career with a run for the council seat in Gloucester-South Nepean, he was defeated by Steve Desroches. Incumbent Larry O’Brien, former MPP Jim Watson and Capital Coun. Clive Doucet are seen as the other three frontrunners in the race.
