‘Huge challenge on our hands’ Public board needs to relieve overcrowding in area schools

Bigger boundary?


City council could reconsider expanding the urban boundary by as much as 851 hectares.


Pink rink Hundreds turn out for Girls Hockey Fest at Scotiabank Place last weekend.

Over 200 parents packed themselves into the cafetorium at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School to hear about possible short-term solutions to the overcrowding in Kanata’s elementary schools on Jan. 17. Of particular concern are Katimavik Elementary School (199.9 per cent above enrolment capacity) and Stephen Leacock Public School (156.6 per cent), with Roch Carrier Elementary School (148.8 per cent) being of mild concern for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB). “We’ve got a huge challenge on our hands,” said Karyn Ostafichuk, manager of planning for the board. “Stephen Leacock and Katimavik need action for September.” Staff will release their recommendations on Feb. 4, and will hold a presentation about the report on Feb. 16. Final decisions will be made by Feb. 22 in order to implement the interim solutions for the fall. The current accommodation concerns include higher enrolment pressures and the strain on communal areas such as gyms, washrooms, computer labs and libraries. “Kanata has experienced one of the highest rates of growth in Ottawa,” said Ostafichuk. “It’s been difficult to keep up with. The OCDSB has not been able to respond as fast as we could have.”

Stimulus fund deadline extension granted to WOCRC JESSICA CUNHA

The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre now has until Oct. 31 to finish building the fourth floor addition and complete renovations to the other floors. Projects taking advantage of the provincial and federal stimulus fund that could begin and move forward during the winter months were granted an extension to the original March 31 deadline. “Right now our services are just really, really cramped for space,” said Cathy Jordan, executive director of the centre. “We were really fortunate to tap into the fund.” Jordan said she expects the work to be finished by May or June. “Right now we’re on target,” she said. “We’re just really excited.” The centre, which provides health and social service programs for residents of Kanata, Goulbourn, West Carleton and Nepean, started work on a fourth-floor addition to its building at 2 MacNeil Crt. last summer. “We’ve got lots to keep us busy,”

said Jordan, who is looking forward to being able to better accommodate people in the adult day program. The $3.6-million price tag is split three ways, between the provincial and federal governments’ infrastructure stimulus funds and the resource centre. The WOCRC will be getting a diabetes centre, which will be run by the Centretown Community Health Centre and located on the second floor. “There’s a fairly large number of (people with diabetes) out in the west end,” said Jordan. Minister of infrastructure Bob Chiarelli visited the WOCRC on Jan. 17 to see the progress being made. “It’s a big win for people,” said Chiarelli about the stimulus fund, which has helped community and resource centres, hospitals and other service-based centres expand. “We’ve had a very significant success story here in Ontario,” he said. “Some people say we just tax and spend. But we’re providing things… that help people.” Aside from the expansion and renovation of the WOCRC, Kanata received more than $42-million in local highway and roadway investments from the stimulus fund. Other local infrastructure projects include the Hazeldean Road widening, expansion of Terry Fox Drive and improvements to Eagleson Road.

OVERCROWDING, from 1 The board suggested a number of short-term solutions for the three schools, including: • Moving the senior kindergarten students from Stephen Leacock to Roland Michener Public School – the junior kindergartens have already been moved there. • Create a new Middle French Immersion (MFI) boundary for Katimavik and move grades 4 and 5 students to Castlefrank Elementary School, or move JK and Grade 4 students to Castlefrank. (A French immersion program would have to be implemented at Castlefrank). • Move the Grade 8 students from Stephen Leacock and Katimavik to their respective high schools a year early, which could possibly facilitate a Grade 7 to 12 system for the secondary schools in future years. • Move Grade 6 students from Roch Carrier to Bridlewood Community Elementary School and W.O. Mitchell Elementary School. Staffs’ preferred option is to do nothing at the moment for this school. “Anytime we need to make a move it impacts the children,” said Ostafichuk. “The interim solutions we’ve outlined are ones we think are doable.” Parents raised a number of concerns at the meeting, including having children attend three schools in three years,

ARC to help relieve pressure

the pressure of having different start times when two or more children are in different schools, and having Grade 8 students exposed to high school issues early. “In a nutshell I’ve seen kids have a much longer childhood with grades 7 and 8s staying in elementary school,” said Alex Edwards, who has a child in Grade 7 at Stephen Leacock and one in Grade 9 at Earl of March. “High school, it’s a much tougher environment.” The board isn’t recommending that move at this time, said Ostafichuk, but it is a possibility. “I feel like an idiot for moving to Kanata,” said Jenny Moore, who has three young children; one in SK, a three-year-old and an infant. Moore has concerns over her young children going to different schools. “In weather like today I can’t wait outside for two different buses at two different times with an infant. I just can’t do it.” The discussion paper, which outlines the various interim solutions, is available on the OCDSB website at www. DiscussionPaper-InterimSolutions. aspx. Comments on the discussion paper are due by Jan. 28 and can be emailed to or faxed to 613-8205210.

Kanata Kourier-Standard - JANUARY 20, 2011


Kanata north’s public elementary schools are feeling the squeeze. Four out of the five schools in the area are operating above enrollment capacity – which means larger classes and more portables. The Kanata North Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) was created to help the public school board find ways to relieve the pressure on overcrowded elementary schools in the area. At its first meeting at Earl of March Secondary School on Jan. 13, the committee addressed its plan of action. “We’re playing a catch-up game,” said Estelle Butler, a planner with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB). “We realize we’re behind the eight-ball.” The committee has a two-year timeline to work under, as mandated by the provincial government. ARC will put together a number of recommendations on how to relieve the pressure on the schools, which will be presented to the school board in December. In September 2012, the board will begin to implement the first group of recommendations. The five schools are: Jack Donohue, operating at 118.3 per cent; Roland Michener, operating at 63.9 per cent; South March, operating at 100.2 per cent; Stephen Leacock, operating at 156.6 per cent; and W. Erskine Johnston, operating at 115 per cent. “We’re looking at solutions through growth projection,” said Megan Cornell, co-chair of ARC and president of the Kanata Chamber of Commerce. She said the committee will consider solutions such as rezoning certain areas, school additions and program changes, such as offering French immersion at all elementary schools. “We have to get very creative,” said Cathy Briggs, co-chair of the committee. “We have to think outside the box.” The board was looking at building a new school near the Kizell Pond area, but with the lands tied up, there is no access. “We’re looking at other lands to acquire quicker since the KNL lands will be tied up,” said Butler. “There are no short term plans for new schools and there are no ready-to-go sites.” She said it takes between 14 to 18 months to build an elementary school. “Our options are more limited because we don’t have a parcel of land. We are still looking for land. It’s the board’s wish list,” said Butler.

Tree cutting ‘imminent’ for Beaver Pond Forest LAURA MUELLER

More than 100 people rallied at the Human Rights monument near city hall on Thursday, Jan. 13 to demand that the City of Ottawa, National Capital Commission and the Province of Ontario order KNL Development Inc. not to clear-cut any of the Beaver Pond Forest until an archaeological assessment can be re-done. Protesters said faulty assessments don’t recognize the environmental and archeological value of the lands. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson also told the crowd that

city staff would be meeting with Algonquin representatives who had voiced concerns about artifacts on the site. The next day, the city sent a memo “strongly urging” KNL to voluntarily pause tree cutting for Phase 9 – the next phase of development slated for the Beaver Pond Forest. KNL spokesperson Mary Jarvis said the developer is “in discussions with the Algonquins of Ontario,” but wouldn’t confirm whether tree cutting was on hold until those discussions are concluded. She also couldn’t say when the talks could wrap up. Tree-cutting equipment was on site

at the Beaver Pond Forest on Tuesday, Jan. 18, but no trees had been cut at the Kourier-Standards’ press deadline that day. Wilkinson said city staff sent a letter to KNL informing the developer that it had met all conditions needed to cut trees and that tree cutting was “imminent.”

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



A 12-year-old evacuated herself and her two dogs after an earlymorning fire began in the kitchen while she was home alone on Friday, Jan. 14. She brought her dogs to her neighbour’s house and told the couple her home was on fire. The wife called 911 while her husband went next door to try and get the fire under control, said Marc Messier, spokesman for the Ottawa fire services. The man tried to put out the fire using a fire extinguisher but had to leave the residence when he couldn’t get it under control. He did manage to slow the spread of the fire, said Messier. The fire began around 8 a.m. at 406 Vendevale Ave. The young girl was home alone for a professional development (PD) day. Messier said she was cooking bacon on the stove when the grease caught fire. The fire quickly spread to the cupboards but all fire damage was contained to the kitchen. However, there was smoke damage throughout the house, said Messier. Fourteen firefighters and four trucks had the blaze under control by 8:16 a.m. The early-morning fire caused an estimated $20,000 in damages to the house and $15,000 in damage to the contents. The family of three who lives in the house has been displaced and will be staying with friends or relatives.

Spirit of volunteering isn’t dead


anadians are often known for their generosity, but it might be a reputation that’s slowly slipping away. According to the National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating, between 1997 and 2000 the number of adult Canadians volunteering fell from 31 per cent to 27 per cent. Locally, Volunteer Ottawa has seen an “alarming” drop in participation from those aged 24 to 40. That particular demographic sees an 18 per cent drop in volunteers. Youth, meanwhile, are putting in their required hours, if for no other reason than to earn their high school diploma. And a quick glance at any volunteer-run organization will show that a lot of retired people have found something altruistic to do with their time. But that missing demographic in the middle is raising a red

flag locally. That’s why Volunteer Ottawa is looking for new ways to get people over 25 back to volunteering. Those new ways include teaching youth about the importance of lending a hand and instilling in them a sense of community. Those are important lessons, but won’t be enough to swell the ranks of volunteers from that middle demographic. This isn’t about the spirit of volunteerism dying. People understand the importance of helping. The problem is more likely one of timing. That missing demographic is struggling to juggle the demands of a career, ferrying children to and from myriad activities, all while often caring for aging parents. The postmodern world is a bit of a pressure cooker when it comes to time management. With so many competing priorities, it shouldn’t come as

a surprise that there’s a gap, at least in formal volunteering. After all, we cannot forget those little extras parents do that might go unnoticed. Those numerous walk-a-thons around the city are packed with families, for example, but it’s hard to measure that kind of informal participation. And then there are those who choose to donate money because they can’t give of their time. The United Way certainly isn’t raising millions from youth and seniors alone. People want to help, and many do, just in varying ways. As for instilling a sense of community in youth, that’s a laudable goal everyone – parents, teachers and associations – should work toward. It’s that legacy that will see these youth help where they can during their working years, and then return to volunteer when the kids get a little older.


Welcome to the new, cheery Canada


must have missed the big announcement, so I was more than a little surprised to see the sign greeting us when we walked into Canada Customs and Immigration at the airport. “Hi. Step in to Canada,” it said. Hi? Since when does the Government of Canada say “hi” to people? Isn’t that a little … well, breezy? Particularly for a government of a country known for its reserve. And particularly at immigration. After all, this is where a visitor from another land makes his first acquaintance with our country. So you’d think the sign would be more formal, more august somehow. This is serious business, coming to Canada, with immigration officers glowering at you and demanding that you show good reason for deigning to enter. Or so we thought. Obviously, somebody decided it should be less so. Rather than saying, “Welcome to Canada. Stay in line,” the signs say: “Hi. Step in to Canada.” It’s actually quite a nice greeting, when you’re coming back from a stay in another country and feeling glad to be home. But it’s a bit of a shock. Just like finding out, when you open the hometown newspaper, that reusable bags, the kind we have been urged to, um, reuse,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town may pose perils that we have never considered. Usually, we think of this as a very cautious place, not flinging around cheery welcomes or taking chances with reusable bags. When we travel, people ask us what Canadians are like. Are they like Americans? Well, sort of, we reply. We sound more or less the same. We eat the same kind of food, watch the same kind of movies, listen to the same kinds of music. There’s hockey, of course. That makes us different. And we might be a little less informal. We wouldn’t be the kind of people who put up a sign saying “Hi!” at the airport. Except that apparently we are. How this came to be is a mystery. If there was a big discussion about it, about whether signs should say “hi” at airports instead of “please wipe your feet and

try not to raise your voice” we missed it somehow. Perhaps we were out of the country when Parliament debated that. Somehow no one was talking about it when we returned, and no one was talking about the big competition run by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to come up with a new slogan to greet people at international airports. This being Canada, we couldn’t have changed the sign without a competition. These might have been some of the losing entries: “Welcome to Canada. No smoking anywhere.” “Hi. Please don’t use plastic bags and the reusable ones aren’t so great either.” “Welcome to Canada. No joking with the Immigration officers.” “Hi. Newspapers in the black box, tin cans in the blue box, food scraps in the green.” “Hi. Please remove overshoes before stepping in to Canada.” “Enjoy your stay and be sure to check out our anti-idling bylaws.” Well, we know now what the winner was. The next step is to consider the implications. Are we, as Canadians, ready to become the gregarious, hi-saying folks implied by the sign? Must we now talk to each other in elevators?

Can we leave our overshoes on? Will it now be against the law to say, “Good afternoon?” May we now wear baseball caps inside the house? May our children address their teachers by their first names? Will fist-bumps replace handshakes at diplomatic receptions? And, finally, how does all this affect the reusable bag situation? Words have consequences, as we learn every day. The government has apparently decided to be chummy with Canadians. Exactly how chummy we’ll learn around income tax time. We can’t wait for the letter. “Hi,” it will say. “Step into the tax audit.”

To the editor: Re: MP calls for action on Beaver Pond, Jan. 13, Kourier-Standard. As a resident of Carleton-Mississippi Mills, I am very glad that Mr. (Gordon) O’Connor has finally decided to do something as a gesture of support for the many residents of Carleton-Mississippi Mills who have been working hard advocating for the preservation of the Beaver Pond Forest and the South March Highlands. As his opponent and Liberal candidate in the next federal election, I have found in my discussions with the many members of the community working passionately on this issue for future generations













Service *


Landfill – Mr. O’Connor has seemed either invisible or unsupportive to many of us. I hope others in this riding see clearly, as I think I do, that Mr. O’Connor could do much more to represent us at the federal level. Karen McCrimmon Federal Liberal candidate, Carleton-Mississippi Mills

Daily reminders of what’s at stake To the editor: If there has been a pro-Beaver Pond bias in most of the Kourier-Standard articles, most people most likely don’t take issue with it, as does Ross Brown in his letter, (Beaver Pond coverage biased, Jan. 13, Kourier-Standard). The people who live in the immediate


vicinity of the threatened lands have a daily visible reminder of what is at stake, so it’s not surprising that they may be the most engaged in the rescue effort. However, even those who don’t live in close proximity to the forest will have difficulty understanding how developers are being permitted to blast through 30-foot high granite hills. If a homeowner were to adjust the grade of his/her property a few inches or if a cottage owner wants to scoop out a few weeds along the lake, the “eco-police� will come down on them with the full force of the law, and force them to restore everything to its original state. In the case of the Beaver Pond forest, it will not be possible to restore 30-foot high granite hills to their “original state� once they’ve been dynamited into oblivion. Pat Coghlan Kanata

that they have been significantly disheartened by his refusal and inability to help in any way. They are wondering: why this and why now? In discussions with current and retired MPs, I have learned that there are many avenues for an MP to make a difference in an issue such as this. The NCC is a Crown Corporation – why not talk to the ministers responsible for the NCC? The ministries of Indian and northern affairs, natural resources, Canadian heritage and environment might all have information or ideas that could be useful. I hope that Mr. O’Connor explored these avenues for his constituents, but he didn’t say he had.

Robinson team downs Yzerman squad in CCHL all-star game Kemptville’s Brenton nets hat-trick in win DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN

Considering Alex Brenton wasn’t even supposed to play in the Central Canada Hockey League All-Star Classic, he had quite the showing at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata on Jan. 12. The Kemptville 73’s right winger was not named to the 21-player Robinson Division roster on Dec. 21. Instead, he and Smiths Falls Bears winger Matt Robertson were chosen to fill in for Carleton Place Canadians winger Tyler Kotlarz and Cornwall Colts forward Kevin Cole. But even with the original slight, Brenton netted all of the Robinson team’s goals – including two in the third period – in a 3-2 win over the Yzerman Division. Brenton’s final tally came with 48 seconds remaining. Carleton Place Canadians centre Ryan Lowe assisted on two of Brenton’s markers. Brenton’s first goal of the game allowed the Robinson all-stars to take a 1-0 lead into the intermission. But Pembroke Lumber Kings forwards Matthew Peca and Brandon Gagne responded in the second period to put the Yzerman all-stars ahead be-

fore Brenton’s third-period heroics. Both Kings had two points. Gagne, teammate Ted Pletsch and Nepean Raiders captain Craig Cowie replaced Pembroke’s Jonathan Milley, Cumberland Grads captain Michael Borkowski and Gloucester Rangers centre Andrew Creppin in the game. Justin Gilbert of the Brockville Braves earned the victory for the Robinson stars. He entered the game at the midway point of the second period and surrendered two goals on 15 shots after relieving Pete Karvouniaris of the Colts. Kanata Stallions netminder Scott Shackell was credited with the loss. He stopped 21 of 23 shots after taking over from Alex Chretien at the same point as Robinson team switched goalies. The Bears goalie, Chretien, turned aside 15 pucks while allowing one goal against. Brenton and Peca took home respective player of the game honours. The Robinson Division consists of the Cornwall Colts, Brockville Braves, Carleton Place Canadians, Smiths Falls Bears, Kemptville 73’s and Hawkesbury Hawks. The Yzerman Division is made up of the Pembroke Lumber Kings, Gloucester Rangers, Nepean Raiders, Kanata Stallions, Ottawa Jr. Senators and Cumberland Grads. The Central Hockey League changed its name to the Central Canada Hockey League on Jan. 14 to avoid confusion with Canadian Hockey League.

Girls hit the ice at Scotiabank Place JENNIFER MCINTOSH

Three hundred young women donned their skates and hit the ice at Scotiabank Place on Jan. 15 for the seventh annual Girls Hockey Fest. Carleton Ravens Players and Ottawa Senators Women’s Hockey teams coached the young women — who play in novice, atom and peewee levels. The girls were also given a tour of the facility — home to the Ottawa Senators — and given a talk by Olympic gold medalist Vicky Sunohara. “It’s not just about hockey,” David Johnstone, Scotiabank community relations manager for Kanata and Stittsville, said. “The girls learn life lessons and hear from their role models as well.” The event had girls ranging in age from six years old to their teens and was free for participants. The girls started their day with tours and then hit the ice for drills and training. They also had an opportunity to see a videotape of their play to learn from. “At the end of the day we give out 15 prizes, it is a lot of fun” Johnstone said, adding that the snowfall didn’t seem to hurt the attendance for the event. “It’s good Canadian weather,” he said. Scotiabank started their “Hockey College” for children and youth almost 40 years ago and have a vested interested in sponsoring local community teams.

“We are the hockey bank,” Johnstone said. “We sponsor 1,900 minor hockey teams across the country and gave $6,000 right here in Kanata this year.” Whatever the motivation, all the girls came home with signed jerseys and a story to tell. Lyanne Potvin, who plays left forward for the Kanata Rangers, said it was her first time at Girls Hockey Fest, but it was really fun. “It was a blast being able to go out on the ice,” she said. “I just love everything about hockey.” Teammate Emma Dudley, who plays defence and is a veteran of the event, said she enjoys the chance to spend the day hanging out with her teammates. Two-time Olympic Gold medalist Vicky Sunohara had the same sentiment. She was one of the first Canadian women to compete playing hockey in the Olympics—taking away a silver medal from the 1998 winter games in Nagano. She was bit by the hockey bug at a young age, taking shots from her dad in the basement by age two. Sunohara said the event really highlights life skills and the focus on girls is why she has come back to talk for a second time. “There is still a focus on boys when it comes to hockey role models,” she said. “Events like this show the girls that the sport is for them too.

Yzerman routs Robinson in CCHL Prospects Game DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN

The Robinson team took the Yzerman Division in a 3-2 win during the CCHL all star game on Jan. 12 at the Bell Sensplex.

The Yzerman Division exacted some revenge with a 10-3 win over the Robinson Division in the Central Canada Hockey League Prospects Game at the Hawkesbury Sportsplex on Jan. 15. The victory came on the heels of a 3-2 loss to the Robinson team in the league’s All-Star Classic on Jan. 12. Leading the Yzerman team’s attack in the game for first- and second-year players was Gloucester Rangers forward Nathan Pancel with one goal and two assists. Keenan Hodgson of the Nepean Raiders also scored twice, while Matthew Boudens and Chris King, Pembroke Lumber Kings; Dalen Hedges and Carl Faucher, Ottawa Jr. Senators; Curtis

Meighan, Cumberland Grads; Spenser Cobbold, Kanata Stallions; and Brandon Watt, Nepean added singles. Connor Primeau, Cornwall Colts; Brandon Lesway, Kemptville 73’s; and Alexandre Gendron, Hawkesbury Hawks responded for the Robinson Division. Raiders goaltender Dan Altshuller got the start for the Yzerman team and was credited with the win, stopping 15 of 16 shots before being relieved by Jamie Phillips of the Lumber Kings midway through the game. Kemptville’s Keinan Brown took the loss after allowing six goals on 17 shots. Hawkesbury’s Dylan Brind’Amour gave up four goals on 18 shots. The Central Hockey League changed its name to the Central Canada Hockey League on Jan. 14 to avoid confusion with Canadian Hockey League.

Groves racks up fifth athlete-of-the-year honour DAN PLOUFFE Just about every time Olympic medallist Kristina Groves comes home, people want to celebrate her success. After winning silver and bronze medals at the 2010 Winter Olympics, the long-track speedskater 356908


was feted by her former Ottawa Pacers club at the Bell Sensplex as the mayor proclaimed it “Kristina Groves Day” in the nation’s capital. And on Wednesday, Jan. 19 for the Ottawa Sports Awards ceremony at Algonquin College, Groves was honoured as the city’s female athlete-of-theyear for the fifth consecutive time. No one could keep up with the 34-year-old once again in a 2010 that was highlighted by her Olympic medal wins in the 1,500 metres and 3,000 m in Vancouver. “My heart has been on one helluva ride,” Groves

wrote on her blog days after the Olympics. “I knew coming into this that I would experience every possible human emotion, but there was no way of knowing how those emotions would surface or just how profoundly they would affect me.” The spotlight was unquestionably greatest at the Olympics, but there were several other standout performances by Groves last year, including her 1,500 m overall World Cup title and a second-place finish at the world allaround championships. There was one unexpected trip home that wasn’t quite as enjoyable for Groves, however. At the end of November, she crashed at a World Cup race in Berlin and suffered the first concussion of her career. Groves wrote on Nov. 23 that the forced break “should help me get my mojo back” although it now appears as though she may miss the rest of the competitive season. While dealing with a concussion was completely new to Groves, another honoree at the Sports Awards banquet is one of the most knowledgeable people on the planet when it comes to the head injury. Ottawa Senators physician Dr. Mark Aubry has led three symposiums related to concussions in sport as Chief Medical Officer for Hockey Canada and the International Ice Hockey Federation. “We were able to bring organizations like the IOC and FIFA together and bring all the specialists from around the world and develop a consensus on how to treat concussions,” recounted Aubry, who lists minor hockey safety rules that were implemented across the country as another one his career highlights. “At the same time, looking at

All Saints Catholic High School student Joanna Brown also received an award at the ceremony as the city’s top triathlete-of-the-year. “It was pretty cool to get,” said the bronze medallist from the 2010 world junior triathlon championships in Hungary. “I think it was a great season.

Kanata Bantam Blazers win International Silver Stick After spotting the Rangers to an early 1-0 lead the Blazers fought back in the third period to take a 2-1 lead and the win. The final on Sunday afternoon saw the Blazers take on the Stoney Creek Jr. Warriors. It seemed the Blazers liked to play from behind because for the third game in four they spotted their opponents an early lead – this time 2-0 after one period. But no one on the Blazers bench gave up as they exploded for four goals in the second and never looked back en route to their 4-3 victory. As with all winners in the International Silver Stick, the Kanata Blazers

The Kanata Bantam B Rep Blazers won both the International Silver Stick Bantam AE division and enshrinement into the Hockey Hall of Fame at the Seymour-Hannah Entertainment Centre in St. Catharines, Ont. on Sunday, Jan. 9. The Blazers rolled through the round robin and into quarter-final with a perfect 4-0 record while outscoring their opponents 29-6. The Blazers got a bit of scare against the Huntsville Jr. Chargers in their second game after falling behind 4-2 after two periods. A five-goal outburst in the third paved the way for a 7-4 victory, setting the stage for a semi-final matchup against the favoured Oakville Rangers.

name will be engraved on a plaque in the Hockey Hall of Fame in the Silver Stick wing once all of the Silver Stick tournaments finish in February. Kanata Blazers Bantam B roster: Matt Borkowski, Steve Bransfield, Austin Cain, Aodhan Carey, Zak Farmer, Branden Howard, Glen Johnsen, Kyle King, Alex Levesque, Stanley Li, Mike Lines, Cameron MacMaster, Tanyon Matheson-Fichett, Levi Neeson, Jeremy Seed, Bobby Venier, and Evan Wilson.

The Kanata Hurricanes Novice B1 team secured the Bronze Pool Championship after a number of hard-fought games. A 3-1 win over the Nepean Bulldogs, followed by a nail-biter 5-4 win over the South End Crushers put the Hurricanes in the championship game. The Hurricanes found themselves

down 1-0 in the final game, but they responded the very next shift and came back strong to tie the game at 1-1. The Hurricanes kept up the pace, fought hard in every battle, raced to every puck and put every effort into all their shifts, scoring three more times to secure a 4-1 win and the Bronze pool Championship.

While showing off a shiny new set of solar panels atop the roof of city hall, Ottawa announced a partnership that will see more panels added to city buildings. The partnership with Hydro Ottawa, which will bear the cost of installing the panels, will net the city $4 to $5 million over a 20year period. The city’s environment committee was set to discuss the idea this week, which would put solar panels on 20 buildings across the city. Some of the proposed buildings include the Nepean Sportsplex, Kanata Recreation Complex, Osgoode Arena and Community Centre, Fred G. Barrett Arena on Leitrim Road, Bernard Grandmaitre Arena in Vanier and Jim Durrell Recreation Complex in Heron Gate, The entire project could solar panel installations that would produce up to 40 kilowatts and 330 kilowatts of electricity, which could provide enough electricity to power 300 homes. “We can do these projects that are tangible and in an environmentally sustainable way,” said River Ward councillor and environment committee chair Maria McRae. The 20 new projects would be at no cost to the city, McRae said. Hydro Ottawa would lease the rooftops from the city and pay for the cost of installing the panels. CITY HALL GOES SOLAR Two projects are already leading the way for what McRae hopes will become a larger push to generate solar electricity in Ottawa. As part of a different project, Ottawa has recently finished installing solar panels in the roof of city hall, as well as the OC Transpo facility on Belfast Road. The 48 panels on the roof of city hall will generate 10 kilowatt hours of electricity – enough to power the equivalent 1.2 homes. In contrast to the proposed 20 new solar projects, these two projects are funded and operated by the city.

Councillor plans to use social media tools BLAIR EDWARDS

Add Allan Hubley to the growing list of local politicians who are using social media to keep in touch with their constituents. The Kanata South councillor is looking to use Facebook as a tool to create a more inclusive ward council. Hubley plans to introduce a ward council that meets once every three months in different locations across Kanata South. Meeting times and locations will be posted on his website: – residents who miss ward council meetings can still participate in discussions about ward issues using the Facebook page, which is still being created. “One of the things I learned during the campaign is a lot of people thought quarterly meetings might be very helpful,” said Hubley. “It’s much better if we could do one meeting that everyone could come out to and get everything resolved. “I don’t see it as a monthly thing,” he

Probiotics are turning up in everything from chewing gum to orange juice and cereal to protein bars these days. But, do you really know what probiotics are all about? In plain, simple language, Nelson Narciso will help you understand why many scientists, allopathic and holistic doctors alike are calling probiotics the “medicine for the 21st century”.

added. “The feedback I’m getting from residents is they don’t want another monthly meeting to go to, so I’m thinking quarterly.” Hubley said he’s looking for people to help define and create a ward council – interested residents should contact Erin McClement at Erin.McClement@ottawa. ca. “We are looking for people interested in helping to build on existing events,” he said. “We also want people that are interested in determining what additional recreational activities we should have and are willing to put the effort into making it happen for our community.” He said the ward council will help determine the community’s interest in a borough system of government, one of the promises made by Mayor Jim Watson during his election campaign. Hubley plans to hold his first ward council within six to eight weeks, after council finishes work on the municipal budget. “One of the things I want to do with this is help people in Katimavik, Glen Cairn and Bridlewood understand each other’s issues.”

School and public transit top the schedule for the new year

The March Rural Community Association has a busy year ahead with planned presentations that cater to those living in the area, said president Judy Makin. “We often invite a speaker or have a topic at our meetings,” she said. “We’re going to start with garbage collection in February. There’s not enough attention given to the implications for rural areas.” The upcoming schedule includes: • A look at school accommodation and school boundaries in March. • Public transit, bus routes and the possibility to put a park-and-ride in Kanata North back on the table in April. • Heritage designation and preserving buildings in the rural area in May. • Groundwater wells and the concern over new developments, how that affects the quality and quantity of well water in June. “Everyone out here is on a well,” said Makin, who has lived in the area for 19 years. “It’s always a concern out here when there’s new development; we’re concerned about the quantity of well water and the quality. There have been a lot of new homes built. Some people have had to do maintenance on their wells or have lost water all together.” A possible topic for a future meeting could also centre on parks, bike paths and trails, Makin said. BUILD MEMBERSHIP The goal of the MRCA is to build up its membership and get newer residents out to the meetings. “We’ve lost some very key members to retirement and moving away. We want to make sure we have the next cadre, the next generation coming up,” said Makin, who has been involved with the community association for 18 years. “We want to have a vibrant, active community association that will carry on.” The MRCA has a long track record of being involved in development applications and political issues that affect rural homeowners.

“We participate actively, we always have,” said Makin. “I’m proudly trying to maintain that track record. We know our community has grown in terms of new homes. We want to ensure that our directors and executive are representative of everyone.” The executive and directors were elected at a special meeting last fall. Makin is joined by: • Past president and vice president: Marie Cook. • Secretary and webmaster: Phoebe Webber. • Treasurer: Marilyn Shiposh. • Rink Manager: Todd Lafontaine. • Directors: Georgina Bartos, Chris Busby, Marjorie Edwards, Jane McCloud, Ken McQueen, Martha Webber, Trisha Willnik, Bob Gregory, Wendy Barber, David Makin and Mary DeKok. • Resources: Brian and Ann Ward. The March Rural area is boarded to the north by Thomas A. Dolan Parkway; to the east by the river; the western border is Huntmar Drive and to the south is Old Carp Road and the Riddell Drive area. MEMORIAL SITE The MRCA has submitted an application for commemorative naming for former City of Kanata councillor Sheila McKee who passed away at age 68 on Sept. 25. “We’re considering naming a park, such as renaming the Riverfront Park or possibly something at the new recreation centre,” said Makin. “But those are just suggestions. We’d like it to be something significant though because Sheila made such a significant contribution to the area over such a long time.” A prominent fixture in Kanata for 42 years, McKee helped shape the community into what it is today. McKee was actively involved in the community as vice president of the MRCA up until her death. The March Rural Community Association meets on the second Wednesday of every month at the Old Town Hall, off Klondike Road, starting at 7:30 p.m. For more information visit the website at

Education was the central message delivered to a packed audience on Jan. 13 at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre’s youth suicide information session. AnneMarie Nicholson, director of volunteer services and a suicide intervention skills trainer at the hospital, made plain to those gathered in the Associates in Psychiatry Auditorium that education and open communication were the only ways to identify and help young people who are suicidal. “If we’re going to understand youth suicide a little bit better, we need to understand the youth experience a little bit better,” said Nicholson. “And we need to be really honest about what some of those differences are.” The session was tailored for both parents and teens, providing information about the causes of youth suicide, how to recognize suicidal behaviour and how to deal with a child, friend or peer that displays such behaviour. It also featured James Thomas, a Brockville man who is producing a documentary called The Truth About Teenage Suicide. The film will examine the issue of youth suicide through the story of Thomas’s sis-

ter Chantal, who took her life in 2005 at the age of 18. Thomas said a lack of education about mental health among his family and his sister’s friends left them unable to help Chantal. “I think it’s so important that everyone as a whole, starting as teenagers and continuing to adulthood, that we’re all really educated on (youth suicide),” Thomas said. Nicholson discussed the idea that loss is the single biggest factor in not just youth suicide, but suicide in general “I think one of the most compelling ways to categorize causes of suicide is to think in terms of loss,” Nicholson told the audience. “And when I’m talking about loss, I’m not just talking about loss through death or loss through the end of a relationship. I’m talking about loss in all of the different ways that we as human beings experience it: loss of self esteem, loss of goals, loss of direction, loss of hope, loss of a loved one, loss of control.” A general lack of coping skills, fewer life experiences, the rapid pace of change during adolescence, and teenagers’ natural impulsivity all contribute to a young person’s difficulty dealing with loss, leading some to contemplate suicide.

No sign? Dogs run free JESSICA CUNHA

Any parks that do not directly state dogs must be on-leash are designated as off-leash dog parks, said Rod MacLean, president of the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association. “Apparently the city has a policy that says when there is no sign it’s free for dogs to be allowed to run loose without a leash.” MacLean said the past prob-

lem of parks having no signage was residents never knew if a park was an on or off-leash area. Now they know. “Now at least it will be very clear,” he said. “We’re quite happy at least that there will be a consistent policy.” Christine Hartig, a policy officer in bylaw services, said the no-sign policy was in place in former Ottawa and it was carried through when the city amalgamated.

“It seemed to be working OK in former Ottawa. It was a question of how many signs we wanted to put in parks.” The cost of putting up signs and maintaining them, as well as the issue of aesthetics determined the policy. “If there’s confusion then fine, we’ll address that,” said Hartig. “But we’re not going to go around to all the 400 parks in the city and put up off-leash signs.”

During a meeting in early January, the KHCA brought up the idea of splitting parks – one part would be on-leash while the other area would be off-leash. “If a park is quite large and you can easily detect where a change could be applied, then perhaps it may be appropriate to allow off-leash in that portion of the park and have the rest onleash,” said MacLean. He said a large number of the people that attend the meetings want to see things left as they

are. “That would be something we’d want to work on with dog owners and residents around the park.” DOG RUN MacLean said he’d like to see something like a fenced dog run installed in Kanata so larger dogs really have an area they can let loose in. “Given the current circumstance there is one element that hasn’t been included in Katimavik, or Kanata really; we don’t have a place where dogs can sort of be let loose to run and you have some confidence that they won’t disappear over the horizon.” The closest fenced dog park is Bruce Pit, which is located on Cedarview Road. “That’s something at the meeting in January we left with dog owners to kind of think about, how they would like to approach that part of it. We’ll just see what that part produces,” said MacLean. The KHCA will be participating in Kanata’s Winter West festival by hosting a community skating party at Young’s Pond on Sunday, Feb. 6.

Kanata Kourier-Standard - JANUARY 20, 2011




YOUTH SUICIDE, from 20 Nicholson outlined the various warning signs of suicidal behaviour, such as sudden mood changes, dropping school grades, drug or alcohol abuse and reckless behaviour. She said while many of these issues can be normal among teens, the severity and length of the changes can be an indicator that a teen is contemplating suicide. But she stressed that having tough conversations with teens and asking “Have you been thinking about suicide?” are essential to making sure those who are vulnerable get help. “At the end of the day, we need to remember that when somebody is at risk of suicide, if somebody has disclosed to you that they are thinking about suicide, now you need to get help.”

Nicholson suggested people concerned about a teen should consult resources like the Child, Youth and Family Crisis Line of Eastern Ontario and Parents’ Lifeline of Eastern Ontario. If the situation is more urgent, teens can be taken to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario or their closest hospital for immediate assessment by a mental health professional. This was the third session to focus on the issue of youth suicide and Nicholson said attendance was high enough that the Royal Ottawa was considering a fourth in the near future.

Beaverbrook is a community in transition, said the new president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association. In the 1950s and ‘’60s, Bill Teron assembled 1,200 hectares of land in the former March township and designed a botanical garden city, building homes around natural features, preserving trees and rock outcrops instead of using the traditional approach of clear-cutting and blasting. The idea behind Kanata was to build a self-contained community where residents could live, work and play. Some of the original residents who bought homes in the area are now in their ’70s and ’80s, Others have left the community. “Many of the pioneers are well into their senior years and some of them are going on,” said Gary Sealy, president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association. “So there are young families moving in.” Last month, at the community association’s annual Christmas party, Teron and John Mlacak, a long-time resident and a former reeve of South March Township, approached Sealey and offered him some advice. “They said the secret of Beaverbrook is community and harmony,” said Sealey. “This is what we need to work on and maintain as we address the issues of transition.” To that end, the community association is working on preparing a booklet outlining the

Membership: vacant. Director at large: Dot Smale. The association is facing a number of issues, said Sealey. “There is the issue of sprawl into sensitive natural areas,” he said. “There’s an increasing concern about the watershed.” Residents are worried about the loss of green space in the Beaver Pond area, which was once regarded as an open space and natural resource for Beaverbrook. “When we see the potential for conflict with nature, of

course that gives us concern,” said Sealey. The executive is also looking at preserving Teron’s vision of Beaverbrook as a walkable community – where residents can work, shop, live and play. “We want to retain the original values of Beaverbrook,” said Teron. Other issues on the association’s agenda are rising taxes and increasing energy costs, especially the cost of hydro electricity. The community association will hold a community-wide

Future events include the community’s annual clean up day on a date yet to be determined in May, the launch of the heritage booklet in the fall and the annual Christmas party in December.

The association also plans to offer a pamphlet to residents with suggestions for renovation projects such as windows, doors and siding, that respect the look of the neighbourhood. Meanwhile, the community association is also looking into applying for status as a heritage conservation district for Beaverbrook. Heritage status will help the community preserve its unique design, said Gord Henderson, the former president of the community association, such as the area’s globe lighting and distinctly lit street signs wired and powered by individual homes.

City Hall



A new slate of councillors might have the desire to overturn the previous city council’s decision to limit the expansion of the urban boundary. The City of Ottawa is facing a slew of appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) from developers who are angry over the last council’s decision to cut back the boundary expansion to only 230 hectares. The boundary

places restrictions on development. Making it wider, as city staff had suggested, would allow more developers to sell and build on their land. Some city councillors are contemplating reversing the last council’s decision and instead following city staff ’s original recommendation: expand the urban boundary by 851 hectares – enough for the number of new homes needed for Ottawa’s expected population growth in the next 20 years. The 230 hectares council

settled on would allow enough growth for the next 15 years. At a briefing for councillors on Jan. 18, some new councillors questioned why council had made that decision in the first place. “I am wondering how we can say that for the next 15 years, we only need 350 hectares of land for building, but all of a sudden after 15 years we need another 500-plus (hectares),” said Coun. Allan Hubley, the new representative for Kanata South. The city’s planning commit-

tee and council do have the authority to override the previous council’s decision, said the city’s top lawyer, Tim Marc. The issue will be discussed at the planning committee meeting on Jan. 25 and that’s where a city councillor could make a move to potentially expand the urban boundary by a larger area. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess said he would wait to see how the debate plays out at planning committee before he could consider tabling a motion that would ask

the new city council to override the decision made by council last year. Increasing the urban boundary expansion by 851 hectares would reduce the number of OMB appeals and save the city money by avoiding lengthy legal hearings. He said Ottawa’s legal defense for the urban boundary OMB appeals will cost $400,000. “There is no guarantee we can get out of an OMB appeal completely,” Bloess said,but the change would put the city in “a solid position.”
