I DREAM OF GENIE The villain Jafar (Kayla Mackenzie) attempts to steal the lamp away from Aladdin during the production of Aladdin Kids. The musical was performed by grades 1 to 6 students at John Young Elementary School on June 9 and 10.

The iconic Canadian book that made it into space has now secured a spot at the Library and Archives Canada. Canadian astronaut Robert Thirsk brought a copy of The Hockey Sweater by Roch Carrier on his six-month mission to the International Space Station in 2009, to experience “188 days of weightlessness,” as Thirsk described it. Fitting that a book idolizing Richard “The Rocket” Richard took a ride on a real rocket, thanks to Thirsk. On June 13, Thirsk handed over his beloved copy to the Library and Archives Canada in front of students from the Roch Carrier Elementary School in Bridlewood. As for bringing The Hockey Sweater into space, Thirsk said it was a no brainer. He fell in love with the story as an adolescent, and introduced it to his three children when they were old enough. Reading is an important part of his family, Thirsk said, and of his everyday life as well. “Astronaut training is a little like drinking from a fire hose,” he said, meaning there is a lot of information to take in over a short period of time. “We can’t do our job if we don’t have reading skills,” he said. Thirsk shared stories and video footage about his time in space, including being able to spot forest fires and having to call Earth to alert them.

A police officer asked McNally if he was the only one inside the house. McNally said his son was inside sleeping. “You need to tell him to stay in the house,” the police officer said. “There’s a bear in the backyard.” A few doors down, Norm Willet was sipping his morning coffee when he noticed the police cars. “The police shooed us all back indoors,” he said. Sue Hindle was putting her dogs out at 5 a.m., when a female officer rushed up to her shooing her back inside. “Let the dogs in,” said the officer. “We have a bear in a tree.” The Bridlewood woman herded her dogs inside her house and rushed up the stairs with her camera. There it was. A full-grown male black bear trapped in a tree over 30 feet in the air. “I had a front-door seat at my bedroom window,” said Hindle. Hindle snapped some photos before a team of conservation officers from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources arrived at the backyard at around 9:30 a.m. The team included a biologist and a resource technician, known as a bear specialist. One of the conservation officers shot the bear with a tranquilizer dart. “He didn’t react at all he just kind of

jumped and went back to what he was doing,” said Hindle. The officers fired another dart, which knocked the bear unconscious. Then came the problem of removing the bear, which was wedged in the branches, high up in a maple tree. The officers called a tree removal specialist who was working a few houses down the street. The tree cutter climbed the tree and cut down some of the branches with a chainsaw; the bear, which was secured by ropes, was then lowered to the ground, where the conservation officers wrapped it in a tarp. The bear was later transported in a cage to a wooded area more than 80 kilometres Norm Willet photo away from the suburban community.

‘You need to tell him to stay in the house’: Ottawa police officer


Kanata Kourier-Standard - JUNE 16, 2011


Little steps prevail in this big fight


he Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser. It’s a common cause, a united battle against a disease that has touched all of our lives. Hundreds of people will once again participate in this year’s Relay for Life at Walter Baker Park in Kanata on June 17 to 18. The Brookstreet Cancer Supporters alone have raised $24,000 this year. Donna Peplinskie, a payroll administrator at the Brookstreet Hotel, said she expects this weekend’s walk to be very emotional. She is looking forward to walking the survivor’s victory lap during this year’s Relay for Life. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, which is the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in

Canada, contributed $49.5 million to fund hundreds of research projects in the country across a broad range of disciplines and types of cancer. Canadian Cancer Societyfunded research has led to major advances in knowledge about this disease. This knowledge has led to improved treatments for cancer with fewer side effects, to more sophisticated methods of detecting cancer earlier and to information about how to prevent cancer. The foundation is now in place for the current generation of researchers to do more for cancer research than any other generation before it. The next 10 to 20 years of cancer research hold great promise. This organization is a national, community-based group of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the

enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. The society is key in many roles including research, advocacy, promotion of healthy lifestyles and strategies and provinding information about care and treatment while supporting families of those striken with the disease. The society has 170,000 volunteers across Canada. It is thanks to these generous people, who work in partnership with approximately 1,200 dedicated staff, that the Canadian Cancer Society enjoys such a strong presence throughout the country. Participants in events like the Relay for Life are a big part of this success story. It’s because of you and the fundraising you do, that huge steps are being taken in this world-wide fight.


Getting around the politics of getting around


lection season and construction season merge once again with the announcement that the province will spend a ton of money to make things easier on the Queensway. Who knows? It might work. Mostly it hasn’t. The creation of more lanes leads to the creation of more cars and a quick return to the congestion that began it all. It can only be a pipe dream in this age when people are driven by cars, but wouldn’t it be nice if that kind of money — $200 million this time — could be spent on light rail and buses. These thoughts are occasioned by a week in Toronto, a vastly different city but with some conditions that should be familiar to us. Spending some time there, mostly on foot, gives you a useful perspective on getting around in the city. First, any city is better if you don’t have to drive in it. Toronto’s network of subways, buses and streetcars takes the strain out of getting around the city. If you can walk a few blocks, public transit will get you at least close to where you want to go. You save the big parking fees and the mental anguish that go with driving a car in that city.


CHARLES GORDON Funny Town We don’t have public transit like that. Ours is not bad for getting from a suburb into downtown. But you wouldn’t want to spend a day trying to hit all the Ottawa high spots — the National Gallery, Carleton, U of O, Rockcliffe, the Newport and the Prescott — by bus. Mind you, not all of Toronto is that well served either. If you live within reach of the subway, you’re fine, but many don’t. It has been observed, rather ominously, that the people most likely to vote for Rob Ford, the ultraconservative winner in Toronto’s 2010 mayoralty race, were those who lived in areas with the worst public transit. In Ottawa, an ultra-conservative could pick up quite a few votes, using that criterion. But transit isn’t taken that seriously here, especially po-

litically. If transit was uppermost in people’s minds, a city politician who failed on transit issues would be out of work quickly. Transit matters less here, and the reason for that is that it is still possible to drive. Sure, you can run into a little congestion, a five-minute delay here, a 10-minute delay there, but most downtown traffic problems could be solved easily by opening up a big trap door under the tour buses on Wellington Street. Meanwhile, people still think it is easier to drive. In Toronto, some people think that. You can see them, not moving on the Gardiner, not moving on the Don Valley Parkway, trying to circle the block for the fifth time to find a parking space, stuck in the left-turn lane on King or Queen. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, some of that grief is headed our way. Notice how many of the downtown parking lots you used to frequent aren’t there any more? It happens here too: more condos, more people, fewer parking lots. The bad thing is that it is harder to drive a car; the good thing is that fewer people will try. All of which poses a challenge to the

public transit people. If you don’t want people to drive in Ottawa, what alternatives are you going to give them? Oh, right: a tunnel under downtown. Do you we (a) really think that’s going to happen? or (b) really think that’s going to solve everything? Good public transit, which most of Toronto has, is not only about getting to work and back. It is also about getting to the store and back, getting to the hockey game and back, getting from the museum to the shopping centre and over to the supermarket before heading home. It would be worth a lot more than $200 million to have that here.

To the editor, Your June 7 article “Palliative care needs to be part of the transformation of healthcare” did a great job outlining the Champlain Local Health Integration Network’s (LHIN) view that expanding palliative care services is a key priority for strengthening our health care system. However, your coverage may have left readers with the impression that Ottawa’s acute-care hospitals - The Ottawa Hospital, Queensway-Carleton and Montfort - are falling short on their mandates. Indeed the opposite is true, as I pointed out to the Friends of Hospice. Our acute care hospitals are getting ever better at what they were originally designed to do - intervene with high-quality care to help people who are acutely ill or have been injured. Procedures that once required weeklong hospital stays have become day surgeries, and some hospitalizations are avoided altogether through medication. People in our region appreciate the service they receive in these hospitals; 91 per cent rate their care as good or better. What these hospitals were not designed to do is to provide ongoing care and support for people who are dealing with an ongoing chronic disease or are simply aging. The objective of the LHIN is to work with local providers to develop local solutions to our health care challenges. For an aging population, that means more

services to help seniors stay as healthy and independent and in their own homes as long as possible. That’s why the LHIN has made major investments in expanding home care services, developing new assisted living spaces, opening new long-term care beds, improving chronic-disease management programs and expanding other community-based services. A similar issue exists at end of life. The vast majority of people don’t want to die in hospital - and don’t need to. In fact, Champlain LHIN Board of Directors, now headed by Dr. Wilbert Keon, has approved a palliative care strategy that includes expanding the reach of services like those provided by Friends of Hospice. I remain very optimistic about the future of our health care system. It is adapting to the changing needs of the population and is always looking at ways to improve its own effectiveness. A good example is technology. As Dale Potter, chief information officer of The Ottawa Hospital has said, health care lags up to 10 years behind other sectors in its administrative use of technology. The LHIN is working closely with all of our local providers to make progress in this area. Residents of Champlain region should be reassured to know that we are lucky to have committed, passionate and skilled people working in all domains of health care. Alex Munter, Chief executive officer Champlain Local Health Integration Network ***

Soccer club not engaging membership To the editor, I have been repeatedly hearing a comment from many soccer families that they are not voting for the West Ottawa Soccer Pepsi Refresh effort because they are angry at the direction WOS has taken. While there are plenty of reasons to be upset at WOS around the level (or lack) of consultation and the seemingly my-way-or-the-highway approach, there is no value in not supporting this effort.



Not voting is not good. I feel that the club’s failure to get the vote out to date is a failure to fully engage the membership and build a sense of involvement. By taking actions such as limiting participation in the selection of the club’s crest to a few people and holding a poorly defined passive invitation to help determine the competitive team name, they have failed to create ownership in the club beyond a small number of people. In fact, the club is creating a strong feeling of exclusion. That exclusion has meant that every email encouraging people to vote has been viewed as spam and an abuse of peoples’ privacy rather than a call to action. So if you are feeling excluded, ignored, and generally (angry) at WOS, I encourage you to vote for the Pepsi Refresh in earnest. The further we move the initiative towards success the more the club

leadership will get the message that a little more respect and engagement is the way to build a successful club. Show your anger, send a message, and get out and vote. Andrew Pope President Kanata Soccer ***

To the editor, My husband and I would like to thank all our neighbours in the Belleview Heights area for helping us find our errant cat, Tango. Last summer she stayed pretty close to home; but this summer she apparently has decided to explore—teenage wanderlust! She seems to have discovered that the world is full of human friends just waiting to be met! I’d also like to suggest to all readers to be watchful for curious cats who might get trapped in their garages. Again, many thanks! Susan Joss Kanata

Divorce: What to Do About the House OTTAWA, ON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Divorce is rarely easy and often means a lot of difďŹ cult decisions. One of the most important decisions is what to do about the house. In the midst of the heavy emotional and ďŹ nancial turmoil, what you need most is some nonemotional, straightforward, speciďŹ c information and answers. Once you know how a divorce affects your home, your mortgage and taxes, critical decisions are easier. Neutral, third party information can help you make logical, rather than emotional decisions. Probably the ďŹ rst decision is whether you want to continue living in the house. Will the familiar surroundings bring you comfort and emotional security, or unpleasant memories? Do you want to minimize change my staying where you are, or sell your home and move to a new place that offers a new start? Only you can answer those questions, but there will almost certainly be some ďŹ nancial repercussions to your decision process. What can you afford? Can you manage the old house on your new budget? Is reďŹ nancing possible? Or is it better to sell and buy? How much house can you buy on your new budget? To help you know what questions you should ask and how to arrive at the right answer for your speciďŹ c situation, a FREE special report has been prepared by industry experts entitled Divorce: What you Need to Know About Your House, Your Home Loan and Taxes?

The Dunrobin Dames hope to win another gold medal in this year’s Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, to be held this weekend, from June 17 to 19 at Mooney’s Bay.

Dragon boat Dames look to make a big splash BLAIR EDWARDS

The Dunrobin Dames are pulling for another gold medal win at this year’s Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival to be held at Mooney’s Bay on June 17 to 19. Officially they’re called a team of recreational paddlers. These Dames come from all walks of life: housewives, grandmothers, teachers, business owners, doctors and an emergency room nurse. But when they step into a boat and grip their oars, these recreational paddlers transform into a competitive force on the water. “They’re absolutely ruthless out there,” said Will Moizer, the team’s steersperson – the person who steers the boat. “They’re out to win.” The Dames have a long history of collecting medals at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, including two golds in the girls and women in sport category. The Dames, who hail from West Carleton, Kanata and other parts of western Ottawa, range in age from 20 to 60-plus years old and train twice a week at the Ottawa River Canoe Club in the months leading up to the dragon boat festival. “We’ve got two grandmothers in the boat and we routinely beat the RCMP (team),” said Moizer, who has been with the Dames during the team’s 10year history. The other teams may have younger and stronger paddlers,

but they can’t match the Dames’ work ethic, he added. “You know if you’re going to join that boat, you’re going to work hard,” said Moizer. Of course, the Dames have a few aces up their sleeves. The team is coached by Bevan Schmidt, a former national dragon boat paddler and his wife, L.A., who once rowed for Team Canada, and who is one of the Dames’ strongest paddlers. “We get world-class coaching for our team,” said Moizer. “It’s the secret sauce.” SCHMIDTS From 2004-08, Bevin and L.A. competed on the Canadian national team in the world dragon boat championships – considered the Olympics of dragon boat racing in a sport relatively new to North America. “I have a few medals from the national team I’m pretty proud of both as steersman and as an athlete,” said L.A. The Dunrobin woman won the Ontario Female Coach of the Year Award in 1991 and has coached paddle sports for the Rideau Canoe Club and Canadian national teams. In 2007 she coached the national junior girls’ team at the world championships in Barcelona, Spain. The Schmidts started ORCC in 2001, a club nestled close to the YWCA-YMCA camp and the Kanata Sailing Club, located on the edge of the Ottawa River. The Schmidts said they want-

ed to introduce the sport – more popular in eastern Ottawa – to the western part of the city. Since then, it has become the perfect incubator for young paddling talent to hone their skills at the club, which is located at 1610 Sixth Line Rd., just north of Kanata. The paddling sports include sprint kayak and canoe with long, tippy and slender boats; marathon canoe; outrigger canoeing (ocean canoes used in Hawaii, familiar to anyone who has watched the television series Magnum PI) – a new and up-and-coming sport in western Ottawa; and finally dragon boating. The Ottawa River Canoe Club was one of the first organizations to feature a ladies-only team – the Dames, which has evolved from a group of newbiepaddlers to regular contenders for a gold medal at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival. Dragon boating is relatively new to Canada and the U.S. but is an ancient sport in China. The Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, a tradition that goes back 2,400 years, is a fertility rite performed to guarantee good crops. Boats shaped from head to tail like a Chinese dragon, powered by a team of 20 paddlers, work as a team to maintain a rhythmic stroke to the beat of a drummer at the front and are guided by a steerperson to the rear. They compete in 200-metre, 500-metre and 1000-metre regattas.

Dragon-boat paddlers sit in the boat, in a style similar to the canoe; they can paddle more than 70 strokes per minute and the boats can move across the water at speeds of more than four metres per second. DUKES AND DAMES L.A. has been a Dunrobin Dame since the recreational club was first created a decade ago. She said the success of the women’s-team spurred some conversation among the ladies’ significant others. “The husbands of the wives (said) they wanted to do that, too,” said L.A. “That’s how the Dukes and the Dames grew.” There were also too many women who wanted to row with the Dames, leading to the creation of a men’s and women’s mixed team, called the Dunrobin Dukes and Dames. The Dukes and Dames will be competing in the mixed category at the dragon boat festival. Both teams usually pull off their best races of the year at the Ottawa event, said L.A. “I really look forward to just (our) really-small 10-year club coming into the city – because we’re looked upon as country folk – and just doing our absolute best,” she said. “I’m excited to see what kind of medal we can get.” The Dukes and Dames are hoping to make it into the Top40 at the festival, said Bevan. “I think the Dames will be

very competitive,” he added. “They’ll be gunning for another medal for sure.” FUNDRAISER The Ottawa River Canoe Club has turned into a magnet for Kanata-based teams and athletes preparing for the annual dragon boat festival. The Ottawa Sea Lions and the Draggin’ Docs, two of the topfundraising teams in the festival last year, both practice at the Ottawa River Canoe Club. The Sea Lions, a team of female Jewish paddlers, raised $24,864 last year. And every year, The Draggin’ Docs, a team of female doctors from all areas of medicine, including family doctors, and obstetricians, are among the top fundraising teams at the festival. In 2011, the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation will support seven charities: the Ottawa Senators Foundation/Project STEP, CHEO Foundation, the Bruyere Foundation, ArtsSmarts, Ottawa Humane Society, University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research and the Debra Dynes Family House. The festival aims to raise $350,000 this year – it has raised more than $10 million since the event first started in 1993 – and asks all its participants to raise the money by gathering pledges. For more information about the festival, please visit the website:




It’s time for the city to give up on putting a light-rail line on the Ottawa River Parkway, the National Capital Commission says. The riverside corridor is one of three options the city is considering for a future extension of the city’s LRT line, and it is the cheapest route – but a letter the NCC recently sent to city officials told the city to move on and consider other options. “…based on the information received, the Ottawa River Parkway corridor does not constitute the optimal solution for light rail in satisfying its capital building objectives,” states the letter to the city from François Lapointe. The letter, dates June 3, goes on to say that the NCC feels it cannot recommend that its board of directors consider allowing the city to use the parkway, which is owned by the NCC. But the deputy city manager fired back days later, urging the NCC to wait until the city’s study of the options is completed. Nancy Schepers said the NCC has an obligation to follow through with its commitment to the environmental assessment study process before it gives the parkway corridor the thumbs down. The NCC agreed to the terms of the environmental assessment, which included a look at the Parkway, and staff from the federal agency sit on the core study team. One of the points Schepers highlighted

in her letter is the fact that the city’s transit planning documents list the Ottawa River Parkway as a primary paid transit corridor, while the two other options – rail along Carling Avenue, or on the Byron/ Richmond corridor – are considered supplementary transit corridors (which could include bus paid transit, like the Transitway). But the western LRT study is re-thinking that long-term transit planning by including the possibility for rail along Carling or Byron/Richmond. At a public meeting in November of 2010, many residents said they preferred the Carling option because it would be closer to a higher population of potential riders and more destinations. The parkway option was criticized because it would take up valuable green space and would be located too far away from where people live; however, it would be the cheapest and easiest route to construct. The city currently pays about $712,000 each year for the privilege of running OC Transpo buses along the Ottawa River Parkways as part of the Transitway network. In her letter, Schepers states that the city will continue to share the results of the ongoing study with the NCC and looks forward to “continuing a fruitful collaboration with the NCC on this important project.” Construction on the western LRT line wouldn’t start until after the downtown tunnel is completed after 2018.

Volunteers keep Canada Day running



Submitted photo

Countless hours are donated by the seven main volunteers who organize the Canada Day in Kanata event each year. July 1st can see them put in a 20hour day. “On July 1, it’s easily a 20-hour day – seriously,” said Diane McNulty, programming and media development co-ordinator. “We are on-site at 7 a.m. and don’t go home until 2 or 3 a.m. And then we’re back on site for 8 a.m. to do postevent clean up. “Then I think we sleep for two days straight.” As soon as one year’s event is finished, the committee begins planning and preparing for the following year. “It starts almost as soon as the last event ends,” said Michele Green, sponsorship co-ordinator and past president of the event. “The bulk of the activity starts in March.” Green started working on the event in 2004, the first time the event wasn’t funded by the city. That year, there was no Canada Day in Kanata celebration.

Glen Cairn man honoured with Mayor’s City Builder Award


John Gooch can add another award to his long list of honours. The 86-year-old Glen Cairn man was presented with the Mayor’s City Builder Award by Mayor Jim Watson and Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley at Ottawa City Council on Wednesday, June 8. The award was presented in recognition of Gooch’s tireless volunteer work on behalf of veterans and community organizations over several decades. “It’s a real privilege to accept such a thing. I never had any idea I’d get anything like that,” said Gooch. “Anything I’ve ever done is because I’ve wanted to it. “It’s nice to receive a thank you but it’s not necessary.” The Mayor’s City Builder Award is a civic honour created by Mayor Jim Watson to recognize individuals or groups who have helped make Ottawa a better place to live. The award will be presented at the beginning of every city council meeting. “I’m really excited that he’s the first resident of Kanata South that’s received the award,” said Hubley. “He’s done a lot for our community, particularly the veterans and our local legion.” Gooch’s list of honours includes the Kanata Volunteer Award, the 1998 Mentor Award from the former city of Kanata and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Royal Canadian Legion. In 2006 Gooch was one of five recipients of the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation, presented in the Senate chamber. The City of Ottawa has named a park after him in Kanata Lakes near Goldridge Drive. Gooch, a veteran of the British army and a member of the Kanata Legion, spearheaded the move to build the Kanata Cenotaph at Village Green Memorial Park in Colchester Square in 1998. 473687

Mayor Jim Watson and Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley present the Mayor’s City Builder Award to John Gooch at city hall on Wednesday, June 8. He organized the layout of the cenotaph with the planting of 20 trees, each with a memorial plaque, a central stone, a flagpole and a commemorative plaque. For the past dozen years, Gooch also organized Kanata’s annual Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cenotaph and worked on the Kanata Legion’s poppy campaign. He distributes thousands of poppies every November at elementary and high schools throughout Kanata. In addition, Gooch visits area longterm care homes in Kanata and holds services for the elderly residents who, for health reasons, might not be able to attend the Nov. 11 ceremony at the Cenotaph. After three decades of volunteer service on behalf of veterans, Gooch is stepping down as the organizer of Remembrance Day at the Cenotaph. But Gooch said he will assist whoever takes over his job next year and he will continue to organize Remembrance Day services at long term care homes and distribute poppies at Kanata schools. In 2001, Gooch researched names for new parks in Kanata, and his re-

search was used by the City of Ottawa to name nine parks after Canadian veterans who had served overseas, including five Victoria Cross winners. The parks are located near the Cenotaph – three of them are still in the planning stages. None of the parks have a ceremonial plaque yet, but Gooch said the city has promised to provide five of them, along with dedication ceremonies this year. The nine parks are: • Ed Hollyer Park, Military Cross. • Norman Mitchell Park. • Private Ernest Alva Smith Park, Victoria Cross. • Thomas Gray Park, Victoria Cross. • Frederick George Topham Park, Victoria Cross. • Billy Bishop Park, Victoria Cross. • Robert Gray Park, Victoria Cross. • Alexander Dunn Park, Victoria Cross. • William Barker Park, Victoria Cross. • Walace Algee Park, Victoria Cross. Gooch is a Legionnaire, a lifetime member of the Kiwanis Club and a recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee Medal.

$100K EVENT So far, the committee is on track with the budget and entertainment lineup. “We seem to always pull it off,” said Green, who added the event is still missing a fireworks and title sponsor. “We’re very close to balancing the budget. “We seem to manage to do that every year. It can be stressful but it always manages to come through.” However, McNulty said every year is a struggle to balance the budget. “Each year the committee struggles with the difficult decision as to whether we should cancel the event,” she said. “Although we do have some truly great community partners that support this event, over 30,000 people visit the site each year, and if each person donated a toonie, we would pretty much have Canada Day in Kanata paid for.” Pattison said he thinks most people don’t realize how much it costs to run the event every year.

“Because it’s free I don’t think people realize that it costs over $100,000 for the whole event.” “Our target is to try and make it a community event that people can come around and enjoy,” said Rod McLean, sponsorship co-ordinator.

Turning Up The Heat!

Summer Special!

VISITORS The event garners interest from people outside Kanata as well, with visitors coming from West Carlton, Bells Corners, Nepean, Richmond and Stittsville. “This is kind of the one Kanata event that spreads across the whole of our area,” said McLean. “I think people understand that this is their event.” The event attracts around 30,000 people every year during the day-long celebration. “We offer a great deal of onsite activities for families throughout the day and into the evening. It’s great to stay in your community,” said Green. “It offers pretty much everything downtown has to offer.” Green said the committee would like to hear from the community after the event. “That feedback is really important to helping us plan for the next year,” she said, adding people can submit comments on the website “If you don’t get any feedback you think you’re doing everything right. “And our feelings won’t be hurt if somebody has something negative to say.”

“Prior to amalgamation the city always funded this event. The last time they funded it was 2003,” said Green. “We brought it back in 2005 and we’ve been running it ever since.” Green, McNulty and Roger Pattison have all been working on the event for the past six years. “The city kind of backed out and if the volunteers didn’t kick in and organize it there would be no event in Kanata at all,” said Pattison, the event’s food vendors and logistics coordinator. “That was such a great event when the city was running it, it would have been a real shame to see it die.” Instead, the group expanded to include seven main volunteers who oversee sponsorship, programming and media development, food vendors, logistics and planning, environment and greening initiatives. “In the last few years we’ve been fortunate enough that our (volunteer) numbers have increased,” said Green. “Up until 2008-09 there were three of us doing the bulk of the work.” Sarah Dehler, the environment and greening initiatives co-ordinator, has been busy working out two new elements the event is implementing this year: solar PV (photovoltaic) and an LED lighting system. “The exploration of this is to further reduce our carbon emissions footprint,” she said. Dehler has been volunteer-

ing in her community for years, and after introducing green initiatives at small community events she decided to offer her expertise. “We started some composting at our community events about four years ago,” she said. “It seemed like a natural progression to take that concept from a small scale…and scale it up to the Canada Day event.”

Scouting the Arctic Circle: scouts heading to Auyuittuq JESSICA CUNHA

The 1st Kanata Scouts and Venturer Scouts are heading to the Arctic. Around 20 Scouts, Venturers, leaders and volunteers will travel to Baffin Island and Auyuittuq National Park in Nunavut to explore a place most people wouldn’t otherwise see. “Just the fact that we’re going up to the Arctic, that’s exciting,” said Scout member Katherine Birkenhead. “I’m excited just for the experience.” The group will head up to Auyuittuq sometime between late July and early August next year to hike up and down the Weasel River from Overlord to Summit Lake and back, walk past the base of Mount Thor, the highest vertical drop on earth, cross the Arctic Circle and spend time exploring Pangnirtung, an Inuit community. “I hope we get nice, clear, sunny days so we can see the peaks,” said Venturer Yiminxue Zhang, who is leaving this year for the University of Toronto but will be staying signed up with the Scouts so she can attend the expedition. “They’re beautiful.” In order to reach the national park the group will fly from Ottawa to Iqaluit, from Iqaluit to Pangnirtung and then hop on a boat from Pangnirtung to Auyuittuq National Park. The group is planning on billeting 12 Inuit youth from the

area when they return home to Kanata. LAND THAT NEVER MELTS Auyuittuq means the land that never melts, said Delia Berrouard, a manager with Parks Canada for Auyuittuq. Berrouard spoke to a group of Scouts and community members on May 30 about Auyuittuq and the many features of the national park. “It’s really a diversity of landscape,” she said. Auyuittuq boasts meadows, wetland, rocky areas and boulder fields, ice sheets and sand dunes. The Scouts will hike through Akshayuk Pass where they will have a chance to see Mount Asgard, the twin-peaked mountain with two flat tops that was used in the opening scene of the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, and the Penny Ice Cap, a large ice sheet around the size of Prince Edward Island. “It boasts some of the most impressive peaks in the whole park,” said Berrouard about the Pass. “It’s a fantastic area to see the features.” The sun won’t set during the Scouts’ times in the Arctic; instead they will have to adjust to 24 hours of light. The average temperature around the time of the scouts’ trip will be around 16 to 18 degrees Celsius during the day, with a low of 10 C overnight, said Berrouard, but she warned the

A big wind could come up out of nowhere.” River and water crossings are the most dangerous obstacle the group will face, since water levels can rise or fall in a matter of minutes and hours. “Creek and river crossings are the most hazardous encounter in the park,” said Berrouard, who

has been managing Auyuittuq for three years. The group will receive a mandatory orientation and safety briefing before they enter the park. “Self-sufficiency is important,” she said, “because it’s a remote environment.” The park is about 85 per cent ice and rock, and has eight emergency shelters throughout the area and regular patrols by park staff in the summer. Auyuittuq National Park sees

about 300 to 500 visitors a year, said Berrouard, with 60 per cent of them arriving in the summer. “We do see youth coming up,” she said. “We want to see more. “We’re really supportive of this group coming up.” At the meeting, the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association donated $1,000 to the Scouts to help fund the trip. A number of fundraising initiatives will be set up throughout the year leading up to the expedition.

‘It’s going to be very emotional’ Brookstreet worker to walk survivor victory lap at Relay for Life JESSICA CUNHA

PIN IT ON Kanata Girl Guides Erin Lange, Lexie Bank and Jenna Scharf received the Lady Baden-Powell Challenge pins during a ceremony last month.

Donna Peplinskie is looking forward to walking the survivor’s victory lap during this year’s Relay For Life in Kanata on June 17 and 18. It’s been just over a year since her last cancer treatment. “My last treatment was May 26, (last year),” said Peplinskie, payroll administrator at the Brookstreet. “I know it’s going to be very emotional but I’m looking forward to being able to do it.” She completed the 60-kilometre walk for the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers last year while she was undergoing treatment. “It was very important to me to prove to myself that I wasn’t letting it get me,” she said. “It’s such a horrible disease. You have to be a fighter to get through it.” Peplinskie is one of 28 employees from the Brookstreet Hotel taking part in the Relay For Life event – which will see hundreds of participants walk the track at the Walter Baker Park for 12 hours, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. “This hotel is awesome with sup-

Hotel in Kanata. “It’s something we’ve been doing for the last couple years.” It’s the Brookstreet’s first time doing the Relay For Life but the hotel staff have been raising money for cancer for a number of years for different cancer charities. “We’re a pretty close team,” said Basille, whose wife is a survivor of breast cancer. “We had eight female employees who had cancer and two males. Everybody survived.”

The Ottawa Senators Foundation has plans to create a yet-to-be-announced number of NHL-sized outdoor rinks in communities throughout Ottawa. Locations for the rinks have yet to be decided but the group is looking at setting up the very first rink in Vanier.

Your neighbourhood could be getting its very own Rink of Dreams. An outdoor refrigerated rink at city hall planned for next winter is causing a stir, but the Ottawa Senators Foundation has bigger plans to create a series of similar rinks across the city and region. Danielle Robinson, president of the Sens foundation, said the NHL-sized rinks would have permanent boards and concrete platforms that would be used as basketball courts in the summer; however, they won’t be refrigerated or maintained by ice-resurfacers like the Rink of Dreams at city hall. It’s part of the foundation’s new focus on providing access to social and recreational activities for kids outside school hours, she said. Locations for the rinks haven’t been decided, but Jim Durrell from the Sens Foundation said the group is looking at putting the first rink somewhere in Vanier. If that rink is built this fall, it will serve as a project for the foundation’s yet-to-be-named community rinks program, Robinson said. The foundation is remaining tight-lipped on details about the program, including how many rinks will be set up and where, or how much the project could cost. Those details will be revealed during an official announcement in early fall, Robinson said. The city currently has about 300 temporary outdoor rinks, and Robinson said some of the new rinks the foundation sets up could replace some of the more rundown ones that already exist. There could also be new rinks in areas that don’t already have one, she said. The cost to build and set up the rinks would be absorbed by the Sens Foundation through its fundraising efforts for the Rink of Dreams program. Maintenance and operations for the rinks would be done through the city’s existing rinks program, which offers grants to community groups to take on the task of maintaining the rinks using volunteer labour.

The city is taking the guesswork out of recycling by allowing all plastic containers in the blue bin. Now, following an announcement on June 10, the only materials residents can’t put in their recycling bins are plastic bags and Styrofoam containers. Most notably, the thin No. 1 plastic containers used to package fruit, eggs and baked goods – also referred to as “clamshell” containers – are now allowed in the bin, as are single-serve yogurt cups. Plastic pails, painting trays and flower pots can also be recycled. That may come as a surprise to many residents who were already putting those items in their bin, leaving the city’s waste collection contractor to sort the forbidden plastics out of the pile. That extra step is now eliminated as the change is effective immediately. Part of the confusion is because the city used to collect many of these types of plastic in the past, but a dip in the market for some recyclable plastics around 2003 meant it cost municipalities more to collect certain plastics than they could get in return for selling them in the commodities market. Ottawa and other municipalities stopped collecting some types of plastic because it was too costly to do so. But the provincial government recently created a financial incentive for two facilities in southern Ontario to buy types of plastic that aren’t in high demand, so the city now has a buyer who is willing to purchase those types of plastic. The city’s solid-waste services department estimates the change will divert an additional 1,400 tonnes of waste from the landfill. But River Coun. Maria McRae, who heads the city’s environment committee, said she expects residents will put a lot more than that into their blue bins now that recycling will be simpler. “We expect to collect a lot more than this.” That will bring Ottawa closer to its target of diverting 60 per cent of waste away from the landfill, said Mayor Jim Watson. “Anything to bring us closer to 60 per cent is good for the environment and our pocketbooks,” he said. The expansion will end up

Save on Bobcat equipment.


costing the city around $46,000. While the addition of new plastics is expected to generate around $50,000 in revenue, it will also cost more to collect additional plastic. But the cost is worthwhile because it helps extend the life of the city’s landfill, said Marilyn Journeaux, the city’s manager of sold waste services. “Our landfill is a valuable asset,” Journeaux said. Now, the city will try to get the message out to residents. McRae said a lot of that public education will happen at events that were already planned for the fall to inform residents about the new biweekly garbage/weekly green bin collection system that will begin in June of 2012.

The Environmental Assessment The new landfill footprint is the only component of the WCEC that requires EA approval under the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). The proposed location of the WCEC and the new landfill footprint component is within the City of Ottawa in the area shown on the adjacent map. The purpose of the EA is to study the potential environmental effects (positive or negative) of the proposed new landfill footprint. Key components of an EA include consultation with government agencies and the public; consideration and evaluation of alternatives; and, the management of potential environmental effects. Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about a proposal.

The following reports will be available for public review beginning July 4th: • Existing Conditions and • Evaluation Methodology, Criteria, and Indicators.

Simon Cowell, the acerbic former American Idol judge, might not be appearing at this year’s Kiwanis Idol, but Eldon Fox said Ottawa residents will still catch a glimpse of the city’s local singing talent at the event. “There wasn’t really a local contest for anybody in Ottawa,” said Eldon Fox, the Kiwanis Idol organizer. “There was nothing for the kids to get on stage and show what they have.” That’s why Fox created the competition eight years ago, which allows youth age 13 to 21 to show their music talent. This summer, there will be a round of auditions held at the Carlingwood Shopping Centre where visitors will be able to see the performances. “Last year we had it at city hall. For five years it was in council chambers,” Fox said. “This year we decided to put it more into the public and get a bigger audience. It works out much better even for the judges and they get feedback from the audience.” Fox admitted that out of the 100 to 200 people who audition, there are some who might not be the most talented singers. However, he said judges often give advice to performers instead of being blunt. “They tell them in a nice way to get a vocal coach, or get some training,” Fox said. “It’s a helpful process they go through.” He added that some participants will keep trying and many re-enter themselves in the competition – some have

even won. Fox stressed that those who want to participate should practice and remain dedicated in order to win the competition. “A lot (of participants) think they can practice at home for an hour,” he said. “Come prepared and make sure you know the song frontwards and backwards.” Fox said he wanted to introduce the contest because it’s a positive experience for young people – and, a good opportunity for them to get noticed. Some have even signed record deals with major companies like Sony and Universal. “I think it’s a real good thing for the community and the kids,” Fox said. “It’s a real good step for them to get used to being on stage.” He said visitors to the Carlingwood Shopping Centre will be surprised at how much talent there is among Ottawa’s youth. “We usually get the top (talent) in the city trying out,” said Fox. The first round of auditions for the 2011 Kiwanis Idol will take place July 16 and 17 and the second round will happen Aug. 13 and 14 at the Carlingwood Shopping Centre. The auditions run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Audition forms are available at www. which also has more information on the contest. Winners and runners-up will get prizes sponsored by Blue Bear Sound Recording Studio. The top winners will also be awarded $2,000 worth of studio time at Blue Bear Sound Studios.

Earl of March student Nicolas Galuban is one of two winners of the Stairwell Carollers’ prestigious Amore Musica Scholarship. The award is given annually to students pursuing music studies at a Canadian university who demonstrate a very special love of music. “This year’s winners – flutist Dahlia AlKhafajy and Kanata clarinetist Nicolas Galuban – were so talented, we had to give each of them the same $1,000 scholarship,” said Pierre Massie, the choir’s director since its founding in the stairwells of the University of Ottawa in 1977. “Previously we’ve had winners from centrally located high schools such as Canterbury, De La Salle, and Ashbury College,” he said. “This year, we’ve ringed both sides of the city, as Dahlia attends Béatrice-Desloges Secondary School in Orléans, while Nicolas is from Earl of March in Kanata.” The two young musicians will receive their awards on June 18, at the Stairwell Carollers’ gala spring concert at St. Barnabas Church, 70 James St. The concert, titled O Vos Omnes (O all ye who pass by, pay attention and see), is in honour of the hauntingly beautiful Renaissance motet by Spanish composer

Tomás Luis de Victoria, whose death 400 years ago is commemorated this year. The audience will also have the pleasure of hearing the Carollers’ a cappella renditions of Italian and Elizabethan madrigals, French chansons and a Latin Mass by German composer Hans Leo Hassler. The Stairwell Carollers, recognized provincially and nationally for their singing excellence, are very proud of their philanthropic initiatives. They raise funds through concert ticket sales, their cookbook and profits from their six CDs. In addition to the $9,500 granted in music scholarships to date, the choir has contributed over $43,000 to a wide variety of local charities. This includes an upcoming $2,000 gift to the VON in Ottawa, to be donated at the June 18 concert. The June 18 concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available in advance from The Leading Note, 370 Elgin St., and at the door, for $15. Admission is free for children 12 and under. A reception will follow.

Condors to host 2015 hockey tournament The Capital City Condors won a bid to host the 2015 Special Hockey International (SHI) Tournament. The Condors, a hockey team for special needs children based in Kanata, put forth the bid after seeing how much the players enjoyed participating in the tournament. “It pretty quickly becomes the highlight of the year,” said Jim Perkins, president of the Condors. “The kids are so excited, so excited to have a tournament that’s theirs; so many have siblings that do tournaments. “We started thinking maybe Ottawa would be perfect.” Perkins said they are looking at using the Bell Sensplex and Kanata Recreation Centre, with the possibility of also using other arenas in the area, depending on how many teams sign up for the event. The Condors attended two SHI tournaments over the past two years, the first in Orangeville, Florida, and the second in Boston, Massachusetts. “I think having been to a couple you get to see the excitement in the kids,” said Perkins. Around 64 teams from all over North America and England took part in the Boston tournament, growing from the 44 teams that participated in the Orangeville event. With a parade of athletes, end-of-weekend banquet and awards, the kids really enjoy being a part of something special and something just for them, said Perkins.

“I think it puts something of value in them.” During the Boston tournament, a Condor’s player scored a perfect goal, shooting the puck into the top corner of the opponent’s net. Before the player had a chance to celebrate, an opposing player jumped on him, exclaiming “That was a perfect shot!” said Perkins. The Condors player was taken over to the opposing bench for high-fives and cheers before he had a chance to celebrate with his teammates. “The other team was so excited about the shot,” said Perkins. “You get to enjoy the purity of the sport.” It’s not all about winning for the teams that participate in the SHI tournament; instead it’s about getting out on the ice and enjoying a game that many of the players have grown up watching. “It’s so much bigger than hockey,” said Perkins. So far there is no bid to host the 2014 SHI tournament so there is a possibility of the Condors hosting the weekend event a year earlier, said Perkins. File photo The SHI tournament brings together teams from across Canada, the United The Capital City Condors, a hockey team for special needs children, is set to host the 2015 States and England once a year for a Special Hockey International Tournament. weekend event, traditionally alternating between countries. There are no elimination rounds and no team is crowned champion. “In our eyes they are all champions,” said the SHI website. “The spirit of this tournament is not about competition. It is about participation and fair play.”
