‘Huge challenge on our hands’ Public board needs to relieve overcrowding in area schools
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 email@example.com
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. ocdsb.ca/sch/as/Pages/Kanata DiscussionPaper-InterimSolutions. aspx. Comments on the discussion paper are due by Jan. 28 and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com
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.
PASS THE PUCK
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) Oâ€™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

Landfill â€“ Mr. Oâ€™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. Oâ€™Connor could do much more to represent us at the federal level. Karen McCrimmon Federal Liberal candidate, Carleton-Mississippi Mills
Daily reminders of whatâ€™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 donâ€™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
W NE TING S I L
vicinity of the threatened lands have a daily visible reminder of what is at stake, so itâ€™s not surprising that they may be the most engaged in the rescue effort. However, even those who donâ€™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 â€œeco-policeâ€? 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 â€œoriginal stateâ€? once theyâ€™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 â€“ 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. Oâ€™Connor explored these avenues for his constituents, but he didnâ€™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 email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

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.

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.
