Margarita Gorbounova had a golden run at the Canada Winter Games, held in Halifax, NS from Feb. 11 to 27. Gorbounova, who trains with the Kanata Nordic Ski Club, came in first place in all three para nordic crosscountry races. “It was my goal to win as many gold as I could and I’m happy to have accomplished that,” she said. “I was really lucky to have people to ski with (to train); the Kanata Nordic Ski Club has been really helpful.” The 26-year-old won the women’s 2.5-kilometre standing freestyle race, the 1,000-metre standing sprint para-nordic race and the five-kilometre standing classic mass-start race. “It was great to be able to make history that way,” said Gorbounova. “It was especially great to be the first one to win gold at the Canada Games.” She said she was a little nervous about racing with her guide Vesta Mather, who she’d only raced with once before. “It was a little scary that I was just going to race with someone I hadn’t done that with before but I had confidence in her,” said Gorbounova. “She did a great job guiding, some people are just so good at picking that up.” This is the first time that cross-country skiers with disabilities competed in the Canada Winter Games. Gorbounova has a condition called aphakia and is legally blind, with less than 10 per cent of her vision. “It was awesome to have more para nordic skiers,” she said. “I’m just happy for the opportunity to promote the sport and become more visible and teach people about what we can do.”

City must live within its means: Mayor Jim Watson Ottawa mayor Jim Watson had a simple message for residents who gathered for the second-round of a multi-ward public budget consultation at Holy Trinity Catholic High School on Feb. 23. You can’t get something for nothing. City council is looking at a budget that proposes a 2.45 per cent tax hike, or a $75 increase for the average homeowner. “This in contrast to the past four years where the average increase was 4.5 per cent,” said Watson. The mayor said the proposed budget delivers on his election promise to hold the line on tax increases at 2.5 per cent. Any additions to the draft budget will demand subtractions from other budget items, he said. “What we’re trying to do is deliver the concept of trying to live within your means.” The water and sewer bill is pegged to go up 3.9 per cent this year or $24 annually for the average homeowner. Less than 50 people showed up for the budget meeting, attended by councillors Shad Qadri, Allan Hubley, Marianne Wilkinson, Mark Taylor and Rick Chiarelli as well as many of the city’s top brass, including city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, police Chief Vern White and deputy city manager Nancy Schepers. CAPITAL PROJECTS This year marks the end of the flow of federal and provincial money funding new capital infrastructure projects. Watson warned residents that the city could not hope to continue the same level of spending on new roads, buildings and infrastructure spurred on by federal and provincial stimulus funding, which ends next month. “We just don’t have the financial capacity to continue at the same level,” he said. The 2011 draft budget calls for $279 million in capital works projects over the next four months, with $186 million of that spent on growth projects, leaving $93 million for renewal of existing assets. That’s not good enough, according to the National Capital Heavy Construction Association (NCHCA). During question period of the budget consultation meeting, NCHCA spokesperson Steve Turner asked if council would consider restoring the two per cent capital tax levy to address what the city calls a billion dollar deficit in infrastructure re-

HIGHLIGHTS The draft budget includes money for two new fire stations opening in the west end this year, one in Stittsville, the other in Barrhaven, together with the addition of 45 firefighters. The budget proposes to freeze recreation user fees and increase police spending by $9 million. City spending will be buoyed by $25 million in uploads by the provincial government. The draft budget proposes to spend: • $10 million to reduce poverty and fight homelessness. • $2 million to spur economic development. • $300,000 for a youth suicide program. • $150,000 for a brain injury prevention program. • $2 million for debt service charges for the Ottawa Convention Centre and other strategic initiatives. • $1.5 million for forestry intitiatives. • $500,000 for environment programs. • $1.1 million to improve transit scheduling. TRANSIT

Mayor Jim Watson, centre, answers questions during a public multi-ward budget consultation at Holy Trinity Catholic High School on Wednesday, Feb. 23. of some bus stops, which could mean a longer walk for some commuters. “The system is clearly no longer sustainable,” said Watson. “It’s been hobbled and cobbled to death.” If nothing is done to rein in spending on public transit the city could face one to two per cent tax hikes to pay for OC Transpo service, he said. Hubley said adding 100 metres to the 400 metre maximum distance a bus rider is expected to walk won’t discourage them from using public transit. “What’s the problem with moving the bus stop to 500 metres or 550?” he asked, noting that some children are asked to walk longer distances to school every day. OC Transpo’s preliminary plan calls for eliminating or reducing 47 routes; merging routes 63 and 64 in Kanata for example could save the city $175,000 annually. Only 60 OC Transpo routes will remain untouched or be enhanced under the proposed changes – but those make 90 per cent of all bus trips, said the mayor. This year’s budget includes money for a new transit station somewhere in Kanata – councillors Hubley and Shad Qadri favour Scotiabank Place while

Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson wants it located in Kanata north. QUESTIONS Gary Sealey, president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, asked city council to hold a public meeting to discuss the costs of the Lansdowne Park project. “Will they take hold of the project in a public way and get into the cost?” he asked. The city estimates the cost to redevelop the area, together with a group of private developers to make way for a new football stadium and commercial space is $175 million. But the Friends of Lansdowne lobby group is suggesting the project could produce a deficit of between $100 million to $200 million. Watson said the city has already discussed the subject to

death and that the city intends to move forward with the project. “I think we have dickered and debated for years and what do we have? A financial money pit.” Every councillor who opposed the Lansdowne project was defeated in the last municipal election, he added. Peter McNichol, a Katimavik resident, asked why bus riders were being asked to shoulder an increasing share of the cost to pay for public transit. Bus riders pay half the cost of a trip, with the other half paid by the city; council hopes to reduce the city’s cost to 45 per cent. “You need to keep the support of the people who are not going to use the transit system,” said Chiarelli. “That peace is achieved by 50 per cent.” City council will make a final decision on the budget on March 10.

newal. There’s no money in the budget for the levy if the city wants to keep the tax increase at 2.45 per cent, said Watson. “We just don’t have the financial capacity to continue at the same level,” he said. “The provincial and federal governments have been very clear; the program ends on March 1.” Hubley said the levy is suspended for this year because the city has enough money from stimulus funding to spend on infrastructure. “There’s enough work in our schedule and we’re getting it done,” he said after the meeting. “Next year we’ll have to address the capital tax levy again. Capital projects in the city’s west end listed in the draft budget include: • $110 million for the south west Transitway extension. • $28.5 million for Campeau Drive. • $28 million for flooding and sewer backup programs. • $15 million for the west Transitway and Terry Fox extension. • $260,000 for watermains in the Meadowlands area. • $260,000 for new equipment at Centrepointe Theatre. • $300,000 for the Goulbourn Recreation Centre.

The city’s transit commission passed its draft budget last week, raising fares an average of 2.5 per cent and opting to add more free seniors’ days, buy a number of double decker buses and keep the price of the UPass the same as last year. Transit committee chairwoman Diane Deans (Gloucester-Southgate) said the last three years have seen fare hikes of 7.5 per cent annually, and she vowed to put a stop to such large fare jumps this year. “To me, it’s counter-intuitive. If you want more people riding public transit, you don’t have huge fare increases,” she said, noting that there’s a limit to how small a fare increase can be. “Some people would like it to be zero, but costs go up.” The regular adult pass will rise $2.50 per month to $94, and the adult express pass will increase by $2.00 up to $116 per month. The rural pass will jump $3.25 to $145 per

month. Students got a relatively easy ride in the draft budget, with the UPass holding at $145 per semester because student associations at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University didn’t include an escalator clause in last year’s referendum, which means students only voted on a pass that costs a maximum of $145. The commission was hoping to raise the cost to $148.63, but allowed the UPass program to be extended at the same price so that student associations can have time to hold new referendums with clauses that allow for inflationary far hikes. Outside the UPass, monthly student passes will rise $1.75 for regular riders and $2.50 for express users. Rural student passes will increase by $2.25. Day passes, monthly community passes and cash fares will stay the same, and tickets will increase by five cents each. Deans said the city is taking a more “sensitive approach” to how it handles OC Transpo this year, as it looks at redundancies and inefficiencies in the system and tries to streamline the service. “It’s a different approach, in the past they would propose to lob off entire routes, and now they’re talking about doing it much more sensitively than they have in the past,” Deans said. One idea on the table is to make express routes truly express by limiting passenger pick-up along transitways after a certain point inside the city, in an effort to speed up route times and make sure that express buses coming from rural and suburban areas aren’t bogged down by urban users. The draft transit budget will be up for final approval at the budget deliberations and council meeting beginning March 8.

Board approves short-term fixes to overcrowded Kanata schools blair.edwards@metroland.com

Trustees approved short-term measures aimed at reducing overcrowding at two Kanata elementary schools during an Ottawa Carleton District School Board meeting on Feb. 22. The board agreed to move the kindergarten and French immersion programs at Stephen Leacock and Katimavik elementary schools this September to reduce enrolment pressure. “We tried to disrupt the least number of families as possible,” said Kanata trustee Cathy Curry. “Nonetheless families will be affected.” Curry said staff will work with parents to minimize the disruption to busing and child care arrangements, whether that means additional bus stops, changes to drop-off locations or individual arrangements with families. The measures are band-aid solutions at best said Curry, but they will give the community’s two accommodation review committees time to map out longerterm changes. Those recommendations will come in December from two accommodation review committees (ARCs) set up in Kanata north and south to study boundaries, programs, transportation, growth patterns – everything in the collective school bag. In the meantime, the board needs to introduce emergency measures at Katimavik and Stephen Leacock elementary schools to relieve overcrowding, she said. The Ottawa public school board approved a plan for next year to: • Move the senior kindergarten program at Stephen Leacock to Roland Michener along with some French learning resources. • Move the junior kindergarten program at Katimavik to Castlefrank Elementary School. • Redirect Katimavik’s Grade 4 middle French immersion program to W. Eerskine Johnson Public School and Bridlewood Community Elementary School. • Tack on 12 portables at Roch Carrier, but otherwise maintain the current boundary and grade structure. Four schools are bursting at

the seams in Kanata: Katimavik Elementary School (199.9 per cent above enrolment capacity), Jack Donohue (126 per cent) Roch Carrier (148.8 per cent) and Stephen Leacock (156.6 per cent). HIGH SCHOOL ADDITIONS Curry anticipates the ARCs will take a good long look at adopting a grades 7 to 12 structure for high schools, a model used by the Ottawa Catholic school board. Moving grades 7 and 8 to two Kanata high schools, A.Y Jackson and Earl of March secondary schools, will require money from the Ontario Ministry of Education to build additions, said Curry. An architect has already drawn up plans showing options for expanding the two high schools for the ARCs. Moving the grade 7s and 8s to A.Y. Jackson and Earl would create space needed for the introduction of full-kindergarten, said Curry. Full-day kindergarten must be in place in all Ottawa schools by 2015-16, said Curry. Any parents with questions about the changes should talk to their school principal, said Curry. Information about bus schedule changes will be available in September, she added, as the routes are not made final until the first week of October.

OPINION

Casino tables a good bet for Ottawa Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson put his money on a dark horse last week when he announced he’s looking for a council endorsement to bring casino tables to the Rideau Carleton Raceway in Ottawa South. He faces some formidable opposition in the form of Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans who has questioned his methods, which don’t allow for public consultation before council decides what side of the gambling fence it sits on. No doubt he will also hear complaints from anti-gambling groups, residents concerned about traffic, and perhaps even the odd bingo hall which stands to lose some business as the raceway continues to offer more services. But at the heart of the matter, Thompson’s message rings true: if people are gambling anyway, why not make a few bucks for Ottawa while they’re at it? As a city we complain about rising property taxes, rocketing transit fares and increased utility and user fees. Even when council makes all the concessions it can to keep tax increases to a minimum, we complain they’re much too high. So why not embrace an easy $2 million in revenue that’s already being spent just a short

trip across the Ottawa River at Lac-Leamy? We’ve already made $37 million in revenue from the slots and races since they started operating at the Raceway – so unless the plan’s opposition wants to shut the entire entertainment centre down, the ethical argument is moot. In the grand scheme of things, $2 million is just a drop in the budget bucket. But that money could be used to start a muchneeded social program, to begin building a new recreational facility, or saved to protect future sensitive wetlands. Maybe it could be used to fund a gambling addiction support centre. There is certainly an argument to be made against encouraging government-endorsed addictions such as gambling. In reality, however, most people who currently visit the Gatineau casino are gambling responsibly, in the same way most people drink responsibly. For the small group of people who are susceptible to a gambling addiction, the city has a responsibility to monitor the issue. But the fact is most money spent in casinos is spent responsibly, and the city should be getting a piece of the action – if only to boost their bottom line.

The aging demographic: hear it roar Watching people break out in revolt all over the Middle East, Canadians wonder when it will happen here. The answer is, it won’t, because, relative to other parts of the world, we don’t have that much to revolt about. On the other hand, we could speak up a bit more than we do now. Take, for example, seniors. We have been hearing for years about the coming power of the over-65 demographic. And suddenly it is here. The first wave of the baby boomers has turned 65. Those who got there first have been patiently waiting for reinforcements. Now they are here and many more are coming. The power is here. It just hasn’t been used yet. But there are issues where the voice of the over-65s could be raised. A nice test of the power of seniors would be the question of whatever it is that’s happening to buses in Ottawa these days. The specific are a bit hard to follow but the generalities follow a pattern that has been familiar for decades. It goes like this: OC Transpo faces declining ridership and revenues so it increases fares and cuts routes. For decades people have been telling OC Transpo that cutting service and raising fares is not the way

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town to get more people to ride the bus. Some day it will sink in. Maybe the over-65s can help that process along. Everybody recognizes that having more people ride the buses is a public good. It reduces traffic, cuts pollution and so on. But more people will only ride the buses if the buses are there. It sounds like the likelihood of them being there is decreasing. This is where seniors could test their newly arrived political clout. The latest proposal nixes the idea of a half-price fare for seniors. It adds a couple of free days, Monday and Friday, providing seniors travel after noon, an idea that has rightly been criticized as social engineering of a most condescending sort. Is this something to email your coun-

cillor about, or stage a protest at city hall, some Monday or Friday after noon? Maybe not. The cost issue is a good one, but it may not be paramount to many seniors. Not all are impoverished, nor do they want to be treated as if they are. More crucial is the question of route cuts. The Transpo planners want, as usual, to cut some routes, and those would not be the ones zooming from the outer ’burbs along the Transitway to downtown. No, the routes we will lose will be the ones that meander through residential neighbourhoods, the ones that take a while to get downtown but stop close to where you live and, incidentally, take a lot of the neighbourhood kids to school and back. Those routes are the most vulnerable because they are the least cost-efficient, and you know what that means. It means efficiency first, you second. Another proposed efficiency is to reduce the number of stops for those routes that survive. The upshot is a longer walk to the bus, maybe a nice bit of exercise in the spring and summer, but not so great in the winter, and not great at all for those who don’t move as easily

as they used to. All this produces a great occasion for seniors to do some roaring and frighten a few city councillors and bureaucrats. The changes, as they have been outlined, are irrational, as usual, and seniors will feel it more than most. The idea of public transit is to get people out of their cars. That’s always a good idea. In the case of some seniors, it’s a very good idea. But people need to be given a reason to get out of their cars. So far, Transpo isn’t doing it. But the decision-makers should know that seniors, unlike younger folk, always vote. As long as they can get to the polls.

To the editor: Yes, there are homeless people in Kanata. Last Saturday, killing time in the Hazeldean branch of the Ottawa Public Library, I witnessed my first homeless person in our “fair” city. Having studied and lived in Toronto for 14 years, I was not stunned by the fact that this man was homeless – it was the fact that he was in Kanata. I’m not sure what upset me more – that this poor man was digging through the garbage for food or that he was doing so in my hometown – where something like this should

never occur. It was this reaction that made me feel like a true “Kanata” elitist snob. Very few, if any residents of Kanata, would think “homeless” and “Kanata” in the same thought. Kanata is in many ways the “Wisteria Lane” of Ottawa. Kanata, with its beautiful parks and sacred Beaver Pond, would never play host to homeless persons – isn’t there a bylaw against that? As a lifetime resident of Kanata (minus the 14 years I spent in Toronto) and raising two children in what I like to think of as “God’s country” I am seriously questioning my values. Even though we live in a modest (under 2,000 square foott) home and

live comfortably, not excessively, I think I’m going to think twice about buying that next Starbucks coffee that is over $3. I might even have to tell my daughter that until she starts earning her own money that there will be no more Lululemon pants that Support Local Organic Farmers cost “only $100.” Sign-up for your summer delivery of produce Wow, living in Kanata really alters Convenient pick-up location in Carp! your reality doesn’t it?

The city revealed three proposed options for the new west district library on Feb. 28.

City unveils options for west district library BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com

The City of Ottawa unveiled three options for the construction of a west district library next to the Mlacak Centre during a Kanata North ward meeting on Feb. 28. The options are: • Demolish the Beaverbrook library branch and build the new west district library in front of the Mlacak Centre and next to Campeau Drive. • Renovate and upgrade the Beaverbrook branch and add another floor. • Build a two-storey addition next to the Beaverbrook branch. The city has $10 million budgeted to build a 2,787 square-metre west district library – three times the space of the Beaverbrook branch. In 2009, the city proposed to build the library on the Kanata Town Centre lands, but the cost of construction was prohibitive because of the land’s rocky terrain and the associated costs of servicing, said staff. Staff looked at alternative sites

450439

and last year announced it would build a west district library next to the Mlacak Centre. The Ottawa Public Library Board will select an option later this year following public consultation and then hire an architect to design the building. Construction of the new library will start in the summer of 2013. The west district library will offer more books, library resources, a seniors’ sitting area, a children’s and a teen’s section, as well as better programs for teaching English as a second language, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. OPTIONS The first option – constructing a free standing building next to Campeau Road – would mean a reduction of green space near the main entrance of the Mlacak Centre, said library staff. While the west district library was under construction, the Beaverbrook branch would remain open, said staff, and later demolished to make room for 27 additional parking spaces. The second option of renovating the existing branch and adding another floor – basically stacking a duplicate building, said staff – would demand closing the library during construction. The existing building would need upgrades to meet building codes and 27 additional parking spaces would be needed. City staff said the second option might be more costly than simply starting from scratch and constructing a separate building. The third option is to construct a two-storey building next to the existing branch, which will cut into the parking lot between the Mlacak Centre and Earl of March Secondary School – this will demand reducing green space on the south end of the Mlacak Centre to provide room for 19 additional parking spots. City staff said construction of the west district library will not shut down other services in the Mlacak Centre, such as the Kanata Seniors Centre or the arenas.

Thunderbird fire causes $2.5 million in damages Emergency crews responded to a fire at the Thunderbird Sports Centre early on the morning of Feb. 28. A passerby called 911 around 7:24 a.m. to report flames coming from a window and the roof of the building, said Marc Messier, spokesman for the fire department. Richardson Side Road was closed between Huntmar Drive and Carp Road as 71 firefighters battled the blaze and heavy smoke. “Due to the heavy volume of smoke that crews encountered and the size of the complex, additional crews and apparatus were dispatched at the early onset of this call to conduct a wide-area search to ensure that there were no occupants in the building and also to ensure that sufficient resources were on its way due to

poor weather conditions,” said Messier. The two-storey commercial building suffered an estimated $2 million in damages and an additional $500,000 in damages to the contents, said the firefighters’ report. The flames were brought under control around 8:33 a.m. The fire was believed to have started in the kitchen area of the restaurant and lounge area and extended to the roof. There was heavy heat and smoke damage throughout the building. The Thunderbird houses two indoor soccer fields, a nine-hold golf course and other sports facilities. Fire crews and building staff were able to isolate electrical power to the dome, which didn’t suffer any damage, preventing it from deflating. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the fire marshall.

Attendees were dressed to the nines in red-carpet worthy gowns, tuxedoes and suits. Television broadcaster Kurt Stoodley, of the A Channel’s A Morning, emceed the event in place of Angie Poirier who was unable to make the ceremony. Councillors Marianne Wilkinson, Allan Hubley and Eli El-Chantiry were in attendance. Shad Qadri and Mayor Jim Watson were unable to attend the event but sent their best wishes.

Council has agreed to spend $400,000 to help host the 2013 Canadian Curling Trials at Scotiabank Place if the bid is successful. River Ward Coun. Maria McRae put the motion, which was backed by Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches, before council on Feb. 23. The motion offers formal support in cash and in-kind services – which are city services offered for free, such as policing – if the bid by Senators Sports and Entertainment to host the event is chosen. The curling trials, which have never been hosted in Ontario, are scheduled for Dec. 1 to 8, 2013. The event determines Canada’s teams for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. “I think having any national event here when we have the facilities is a great thing for the community,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson when the notice of motion was put forward earlier in the month. The city said the event offers significant economic benefits. “If you have an event that brings a lot of people from out of town, they’ll need hotel rooms; restaurants will benefit,” said Wilkinson. “Even if they stay downtown they’ll be in the Kanata area when they’re playing.” The approximate economic impact on the local economy would be $24 million, based on Edmonton’s experience hosting the event in 2009. Up to 14,000 hotel rooms would be booked and 50 per cent of any profits earned by the Canadian Curling Association would be reinvested to the local curling community, said the city. Edmonton’s legacy was $600,000. Council also recently agreed to spend $400,000 to support a bid for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2014 and FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015. The funds are not used for the bids themselves but are a commitment from the city to financially back the events if the bids are successful.

Dr. Bruce W. Beehler is pleased to welcome Dr. Clarke Webster to the Crossing Bridge Family Dentistry team.

ORPHEUS MUSICAL THEATRE SOCIETY The Orpheus Musical Theatre Society will be presenting an energetic production of Into the Woods at Centrepointe Theatre in March. Among the complex characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s combination of characters are Little Red Riding Hood, a decrepit cow named Milky White, a vindictive witch and one very Mysterious Man, all living in the land of fairytales. There is a strong Kanata connection to this production. “Imagine some of your favourite fairy tale characters such as Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, all in the same story and wandering around in the woods, each with a special wish to fulfill,” said Michael Gareau, the show’s artistic director, from Kanata. “Add in a witch, a couple of princes and other well-known characters, have them looking for items to make a potion to break a curse and you have the makings of a really interesting plot for this musical.” Gareau said he was not surprised at the level of interest for Into the Woods during the audition phase. “The interest in this show was really quite phenomenal. We had so many auditionees that only one in every seven

actually got a role. We ended up with the cream of the crop.” One of those auditionees was Mackenzie Salhany, also a resident of Kanata, who portrays Little Red Riding Hood – a little different than the one portrayed in the original book. This “Red” is no shrinking violet; she’s a gal who can take care of business – as long as she has been well fortified with sweets from the baker and his wife. Bob Lackey, a retired Holy Trinity Catholic High School teacher, fills a dual role of the narrator who moves the story along and a Mysterious Man who has close, mystifying ties to another key character. “The trick for the narrator is to be an interesting storyteller but one with a bit of an edge or attitude toward some of the characters about whom he is telling the story,” he said. “The other character ultimately is a deadbeat dad who is trying to make amends, trying to make at least one of his son’s wishes come true in life and in the process perhaps finds forgiveness. ” With the wide range of characters to dress, costume design and creation comes with its challenges. Intrigued by the creative aspect, co-costume designers Joy Lackey and Cynthia Sanoy both had their eye on the show. INTO THE WOODS, see 15

INTO THE WOODS, from 14 Mark Muench, also a member of the Kanata community, is the master carpenter for this production. Muench leads a team of skilled builders who have constructed, among many other set pieces, Rapunzel’s tower and a complex forest foundation. This is the first time Orpheus has undertaken Into the Woods, which first appeared on Broadway in 1987. “Our audience base is becoming more diversified and we strive to respond to what they are asking for,” said Orpheus president Lisa Hopkins. “The standards are always popular and we have enhanced our offerings with more recent, innovative Broadway productions. Orpheus is evolving as our community of theatre-goers evolves.” Into the Woods will run from March 4 to 13, at Centrepointe Theatre. For more information visit the website at www.orpheustheatre.ca.

The Earl of March Lions made it to the ball but the slipper didn’t fit. The team’s Cinderella season ended with a 75-55 loss to the Louis Riel Rebelles at the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association’s (NCSSAA) junior boy’s basketball championship on Feb. 24. Earl fell into foul trouble early in the game, sending Louis Riel to the free-throw line 11 times in the first half. At the end of the first quarter the

score was 23-15, powered by an 11point performance by Hanad Yusuf, who finished the game with 26 points. “We got behind very early,” said Lions head coach Steve Jackson. “For the rest of the game it was back and forth but we couldn’t get back.” Earl fought to even the score, shaving Louis Riel’s lead to five points at one time in the game, but the Lions weren’t able to maintain steady offensive pressure on the Rebelles, said Jackson. “They had good scoring power all game long and we went in spurts,” he said. Earl of March point guard Idan Itskovitch finished the game with 16 points, with six three-pointers, while forward Sujit Naidu had 12 points, centre Jacob Nicholson had nine points and forward James Anderson finished with 10 points. Even with the loss it was a season to remember, said Jackson. The Lions finished the regular season with a 5-1 record, placing first in the NCSSAA far west division, and defeated West Carleton 55-45 to win the western conference championship on Feb. 22. “It’s the first time in over 15 years we’ve advanced beyond the quarter finals,” said Jackson. “So to win the conference finals was huge.”

Q

My ABS light is on, is it safe to drive?

A

The car will drive normally but braking will be the same as a vehicle without ABS, so extra caution should be taken when driving in bad weather conditions. The ABS light indicates that the computer has detected a problem and has disabled the ABS system. This can be caused by many things be it a module, sensor or even corrosion.

Blind curler takes silver JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Kanata’s Peter Henry and his team took second place at the Canadian Blind Curlers Association National Tournament last month. The Glen Cairn man filled in as the lead for the Prince George, BC team at the curling tournament. “I was glad to do it for them,” said Henry, who curls every Wednesday with the Ottawa Blind Curlers at the City View Curling

Club off Merivale Road. “It was a little difficult at the beginning because they didn’t know me and I didn’t know them.” Henry said the biggest difference for him was adjusting to where the coach stood. The coach for the Prince George team stood off to the side, whereas his own coach usually stands in front to give Henry a guide to go off of when throwing the rock. “I (usually) go by where the voice is coming from,” said Henry.

‘We’re hoping we’ll come back with the gold again’ CURLER, from 20 After five games in the round robin, the team was 2-3. They won against the Ontario team, which included members from Henry’s club, and went up against Alberta. After beating Newfoundland in the semifinals 9-6, the team lost 9-4 to reining champions Kelowna, BC. LOVE OF THE GAME Henry first heard about blind curling when he attended a blind fishing tournament 17 years ago. “The cabin I was in, they were all skips,” he said, adding he couldn’t wait to sign up once he got back to town.

“I love it. I’ve been doing it since ’94.” Since that time he’s amassed a collection of medals, including three gold, two silver and two bronze from various tournaments. He uses a special tool called a stabilizer instead of a broom when he throws the rock. “I have my right foot in the hack and my left foot is out and I use a stabilizer, it’s down on the ice to keep my shoulder straight,” he said. “Coaches tell you to bring it back a bit, (to the) left or right. Then you bring the rock right back to your toe then let it go.” With around 10 members in the club, Henry said only two are totally blind

and the rest have some partial vision. He added the sociability with his teammates is one of the perks of curling with a club. Henry has curled for teams from Toronto, Kingston and Hamilton when they’ve been short players. “You meet a lot of friends from different parts of the country. You see the same people every year.” Right now the team is gearing up for the Ontario Blind Provincial Curling Tournament, coming up in Oshawa, Ont. from March 18 to 20. With two gold medal finished in the past two years, Henry said the team is aiming to add a third. “We’re hoping we’ll come back with the gold again.”

A team of researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario has received $4.5 million in federal funding to embark on an ambitious project to that will study the genetic causes of a range of rare disorders. Working through Genome Canada, the team led by geneticist Kym Boycott of the CHEO Research Institute will share the grant with another research team at the University of British Columbia. Boycott and her team will study more than 70 childhood genetic disorders, while the UBC team will investigate six of the most challenging types of cancer to afflict children. “Every gene that we discover as part of this initiative will allow us to study ... the pathways about how this gene interacts in the body,” she said. Boycott will use new genomics technology developed in Canada that allows sequencing of genetic material. She said she hopes to have the initial findings available to the medical community by the end of April. Minister of state for science and technology Gary Goodyear made the funding announcement at CHEO on Feb.22, stressing that the investment will help find important new treatments for children with cancer and rare genetic diseases affecting thousands of Canadian children. About 25 patients and their families in the Ottawa area are set to be part of the study. “They want to know exactly what’s going on with their children and why it’s happened,” Boycott said. The research team at UBC will be led by Dr. Paul Sorensen and will use some of the most powerful gene sequencing technologies ever developed to probe the genomes of up to six of the most challenging childhood cancers known. The researchers will use leading edge sequencing technology to rapidly scan the DNA of the entire human genome that is contained in tumor cells. Since 2000 Genome Canada, a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to developing and implementing a national strategy in genomics and proteomics research, has received $915 million in funding commitments from federal government. “Canada is now poised to take a leading position in disease gene discovery, opening up exciting new possibilities for diagnosis and treatment,” said Dr. Pierre Meulien, president and CEO of Genome Canada.

Stallions lock up playoff spot after loss to Raiders DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

The Kanata Stallions are officially back in the playoffs. After missing the post-season for the past two years, the Stallions have locked up either an eighth- or seventh-round spot in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) Tier 1 playoffs after a 4-1 road victory over the Hawkesbury Hawks on Feb. 25. This has earned them the dubious reward of playing either the Cornwall Colts or the Pembroke Lumber Kings, ranked third and seventh nationally as of Feb. 21, in the first round of the playoffs. But Kanata must wait for Smiths Falls to play its final three games before making any travel plans. Smiths Falls (26-28-3-3) trails Kanata (2828-3-2) by three points and has two games left to play on Friday, March 4 and Sunday, March 6. Kanata ended its regular season at the KRC on Tuesday, March 1 (after the Kourier-Standard’s print deadline) against the Hawks. Last week, the Stallions split two games, with a win in Hawkesbury and a 6-3 loss at home against the Nepean Raiders (27-22-64) at the KRC on Feb. 22. ‘EVERY GAME IS A MUST WIN’ The Raiders took care of business on

Feb. 22, handing the Stallions a convincing 6-3 loss. Five goals in the second period were the difference at the Kanata Recreation Complex, as the Raiders controlled much of the play in the offensive zone throughout the frame. The Raiders received goals from Brent Norris, plus singles from Grant Telfer, Zach Carriveau and Cole Weedmark. Norris capped off his hat-trick in the third period, netting his 41st goal of the season on a penalty shot. The win pulled the Raiders to within two points of the Canadians and four of the Rangers. It also officially clinched a playoff berth for Nepean. “Fifth spot would be huge,” winger Buddy Robinson said, “but we’re not afraid to play against anyone. In sixth spot, we’d play a tough Brockville team. If we could get fifth, I think we’d have a better chance. But we’re not afraid of Brockville.” Robinson credited the successive goals by Telfer and Norris less than a minute apart as the game’s turning point. The tallies gave the Raiders a two-goal advantage and put the Stallions’ game on their heels. Kanata goaltender Scott Shackell left the game after the second period with an injury to his right arm and was replaced by Travis Wilkins. The tough result for the Stallions left them in seventh place, five points behind the Raiders, with only a home-and-home

Daniel Nugent-Bowman

Nepean Raiders defenceman Cameron Odam skates away dejected after Kanata Stallions winger Ryan Donnelly scores his first of three goals on Feb. 22. The Raiders won the game, however, 6-3. series against the last-place Hawkesbury Hawks remaining on their schedule to secure a spot in the postseason. “It’s a tough loss and it makes those two games all the more important,” said Stallions right-winger Ryan Donnelly, who re-

corded all three of his team’s goals against Nepean. “Every game is a must win. We’re battling against other teams (Smiths Falls and Ottawa). It’s almost like our first round right now.”

Agencies have to keep up with volunteer needs emma.jackson@metroland.com

In Ottawa’s complex volunteering sector, agencies never stop struggling to bring volunteers into their organizations – but it’s not always for a lack of willing people. According to Keenan Wellar, executive staff leader at the intellectual disabilities support charity Live Work Play, often the biggest barriers to recruiting volunteers come from the agencies themselves, who he said are often unwilling to embrace new technologies and new methods to reach out to various demographics. “I think many agencies are using the same or very similar recruitment methods and offering same opportunities that they have for years and years, and then they’re surprised when volunteers with different interests and ways of communicating aren’t knocking down their doors,” Wellar said. The rise of social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter are among some of the most useful – and ignored – methods of recruitment, he added. “Some people don’t understand that social media is part of your overall communications strategy,” he said. “It is a tremendous benefit to us, there’s no better market. You can’t pay to have someone speaking from the heart like that, giving those little microtestimonials (online). And of course their contacts will look to that.” Wellar said the worst thing an agency can do is use an overarching ad calling for general volunteers. He said men especially need ads that give job-specific details, so that they know exactly what they’re getting into. “The open-ended appeal is difficult, there are these extreme demands on volunteers and they have to slot out their interests very carefully,” he said. “They are very wary of going through the process and then being expected to commit to more or something different than

they had in mind.” Citizen Advocacy, which matches volunteers to residents with disabilities who need some company or help with errands, makes a huge effort to personalize its advertisements through online databases such as Volunteer Ottawa. “What seems to be working for us is really trying to target more specific groups. Instead of a general ad saying ‘we’re looking for volunteers’, we’re actually creating a story about somebody specific,” said Hilary Albers, who co-ordinates volunteers for Citizen Advocacy. “Something like, ‘Tim really likes sports and cars, and he’s more comfortable hanging out in his apartment but he’d like someone to come spend time with him.’ I think that way you can attract people who can relate to that person. I think having a more personal approach is always very helpful and meaningful.” When it comes to Facebook and Twitter, however, Albers said those tools are great for some agencies but are not one-size-fits-all, especially for the type of volunteer Citizen Advocacy is looking for. “I think a lot of the demographics that we’re gearing toward might not be your typical Facebooker or techsavvy person. Maybe the younger crowd and students for sure, but older prospective volunteers don’t use that tool, and a lot of our protégés (clients) don’t use that as a tool,” she said, noting that the agency is busy enough without maintaining Facebook and Twitter pages. Wellar said he doesn’t understand the “old-school” mentality that often rejects new tools like Facebook, but he said an even bigger barrier for agencies is their level of bureaucracy. “The number one complaint we hear is that the process was a turn-off,” he said. “It’s great to go online and have a Facebook page or email, but if you don’t have anyone monitoring it, that’s terrible. If it was days before I got a response, I would think, ‘Do I really want to

Youths!

get involved with this agency?’” Citizen Advocacy’s process is certainly lengthy, involving an information session, a two-hour personal interview, a reference check and a police record check, but Albers said it’s absolutely necessary. “We take the time to get to know our prospective volunteer advocates, we want our matches to be successful and long term.” she said. The common element seems to be that every agency is different, but that they need to keep up with changing trends and be able to adapt to meet their volunteers’ needs, said Omaima Faris, the volunteer co-ordinator for the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO). “It’s really hard for the agencies, but you really have to be creative and flexible to go with the flow with the volunteers, because we need them,” she said. “They may need us for some pieces, but essentially we need them for our services.”
