Commuter rail line one step closer Council signs off on purchase of Pembroke-Nepean line BUDGET

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

FIT FOR LIFE Bridlewood fitness class offers more than just aerobics to its members.

Transport Pontiac-Renfrew is one step closer to eventually creating a commuter rail link between Pembroke and the Ottawa VIA Rail station. On Oct. 26, city council gave its consent for TPR to acquire and operate the 32 kilometres of the rail line – known as the Beachburg Subdivision – that lay within the city’s boundaries. It runs through West Carleton and Kanata and ends in Nepean, near Walkley Road, but TPR would look at acquiring “running rights” to use other tracks to get people to the VIA station on Tremblay Road in the city’s east end. It was the final approval out of nine municipalities the group needed to move forward with a plan to buy the line and use it to run more freight routes – and eventually, a commuter rail service. “It is essential,” TPR’s Terry Gibeau, former mayor of Arnprior, said of the city’s approval. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said a survey taken in the Ottawa Valley indicated a commuter line would attract several hundred riders. “Kanata people would be able to get on there if they wanted to – it would be in the business park,” she said. “I think it could be very useful in Kanata, especially the Kanata Business Park.” Ottawa doesn’t want to have any liability for the project, according to the motion passed by city council.

A commuter heavy rail line running from Pembroke to Nepean and passing through Kanata could have a dramatic effect on how OC Transpo chooses to deliver service says a consultant for Transport Pontiac-Renfrew.

But it’s an idea that has some support around the council horseshoe, including from deputy mayor and West Carleton Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. El-Chantiry, who sits on TPR’s board of directors, said the initiative is a “very credible” one. “Those tracks are very important to us … We don’t want to make the same mistakes our predecessors made by pulling them,” he said. More than 10,000 people commute to Ottawa from the Valley, and a TPR study found that 25 per cent of those commuters would use the rail system instead, ElChantiry said. Gibeau said CN Rail is set to sell the line to TPR. That could happen as early as January of 2012. In the short term, that will mean more freight shipping and therefore, more jobs in the Ottawa Valley, Gibeau said. CN is only running the line one day per week for freight, and TPR would have it run seven days a week, Gibeau said. A short line owned by a smaller, local group would also provide better service and hopefully attract more companies who would want to use the line to ship their goods, Gibeau added. “But we haven’t lost sight of the fact that we want to get into a commuter service,” he said. Gibeau is setting his sights a year and a half into the future. That’s when he says

TPR could be ready to run a commuter rail service through the valley, starting in Pembroke and ending in Nepean. The line runs from Pembroke through Beachburg to Renfrew County before skirting into the Pontiac in Quebec. It crosses back into Ontario at Fitzroy Harbour before heading to Nepean, so there would be a number of commuter stops in Ottawa, Gibeau said. TPR will also resume talks with OC Transpo about offering bus passes along with the commuter rail fare, so travelers can reach their final destination. Those talks were going well a couple of years ago, Gibeau said. “It will probably add to OC Transpo’s business,” he mused, and it could take pressure off OC’s park-and-ride lots. James Allen, a former rail manager and consultant for TPR, said the commuter line could have a “very dramatic impact” on OC Transpo and how the transit authority distributes its service in areas where TPR and OC Transpo could overlap. The heavy commuter rail line and the proposed path of Ottawa’s planned light-rail system don’t intersect. Looking even further into the future, Gibeau said TPR could look at signing agreements with the owners of other rail lines, including ones that run to other commuting origins such as Smiths Falls. TPR was created in 2009 after CN put the Beachburg Sub on the list for abandonment.

Baby fine following fast-paced birth Woman in labour given police escort to hospital Adult Karate and Cardio Kickboxing

JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Baby Tanner Vargas may be closing in a month old, but it’s likely the family will be telling the story of his birth for many years. “He gave my wife very little warning,” said Kanata resident Shawn Vargas. Vargas said his wife Tara slept through most of the contractions, but started things started getting serious at 6 a.m. “By 7:45 she said the baby is coming,” Shawn said. The couple’s doctor works out of the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital and having recently moved to Kanata from Barrhaven, it required a trip on Highway 417.

Kick the stress out of your day The health benefits associated with martial arts training and cardio kickboxing extend far into adult life. A healthier and stronger heart, a toned and muscular body, flexible and mobile joints and limbs are just a few of the many benefits our adult members enjoy.

bulance.” Because the labour had progressed so far, Shawn said the officers decided to escort the couple the rest of the way to the hospital, rather than wait for the ambulance. “It was like something out of a movie, with the three SUVs ahead of us, parting the Red Sea,” Shawn said. The convoy arrived just in time, because Tara was brought into the birthing room at 8:27 a.m. and Tanner made his appearance a mere two minutes later. “My wife was really amazing the whole time; we were both pretty calm,” Vargas said, adding that his wife wasn’t a fan of the police convoy. “If it had happened with our first child I don’t think we would have handled it so well,” he said. Vargas said the new baby is healthy and he plans to spend the next nine months on paternal leave to help with the care of his two young sons.

To the editor, Beaverbrook is now almost 50 years old, unique as a small town within a city. It was one of a handful of garden cities with very special features such as its parks, paths and businesses in walking distance, all in harmony with nature including little forests, parks and open green spaces. This is the legacy Beaverbrook inherited from Bill Teron: a visionary in town planning. The community in those days was a group of young families eager to set up groups like scouts, guides and sports teams and to support the schools. Today, the original owners are leaving and the homes are being bought by a younger generation who still value the special character of Beaverbrook. Today the challenges are different and require a new network of leaders. Beaverbrook no longer needs to set up the community groups. However, it does need to know its neighbours because their dreams for their families and neighbourhood do not necessarily match up with the dreams of developers. Beaverbrook needs to develop a plan for intensification that matches its aspirations, rather than those of the developers who salivate at the idea of 16- to 18-storey building at the old post office on Teron road. Preserving Beaverbrook’s special features requires a “special designation” in the City of Ottawa. To bring together a new generation of leaders to spearhead this, and to help people get to know their neighbours once again, the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association is organizing a Travelling Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 26. Signing up for a Travelling Dinner means offering one course of a three course meal for four people plus yourselves. You will meet 12 others (people who you’d normally never meet) in the course of the evening and finally all 60-70 when we all get together at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Teron for dessert. In the event we are oversubscribed, selection will be made first to be representative of every street in Beaverbrook. And then, we’ll do it again on another date. To take part, just phone Eileen Howell at 613 592 8754 or email her at ehowell@magma.ca. The deadline is Nov. 12.

To the editor, I needed to write my thoughts down. This is what came out. The world is crying for you. We are so, so sorry. When I got the phone call from my mom Saturday morning, I was shocked. How old was he? How did he do it? Why? I knew Jamie Hubley. His dad Allan and my mom were good friends, and my mom helped Allan with his political campaigns. Quite a few years ago I babysat Jamie and his younger brother Josh as our parents went door-to-door asking for support. Knowing Jamie personally put a whole other spin to this issue. It put a face, a personality, a family to the issue. I now had a personal connection. High school sucks. It sucked for me. It sucked for my brother. It sucked for some of my friends. Kids are vicious, ignorant and above all they do not realize the consequences of their actions. Words hurt. No matter what our parents tell us, or that little “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me,” thing that is supposed to make us feel better about ourselves . . . it’s not true. When we hear those same names, insults and rumours everyday we internalize them. They become part of who we are. Bullying comes in many forms . . . the guys who sit in the hallways and call you a name as you walk by them, the girls who comment on your clothes, your hair, your shoes, the individuals who start rumours behind your back, the groups who push you around for no apparent reason except for the fact that you are a little bit different from them.

Budget a win for pedal power

R

oads, transit, taxes, police: the introduction of a city budget is a deluge of information about the way our representatives plan to spend our money this year. But some things shine through brighter than others. Amongst the splashy additions of road projects and congratulatory back-patting over keeping the tax increase under 2.5 per cent, Mayor Jim Watson boasted about a pretty hefty influx of cash for cycling. Compared to the $2.8 million per year for cycling included in this council’s first budget for 2011, the city is now set to invest $24 million in cycling over the next three years – including $12.2 million in 2012. “We will be working hard to fill the gaps in our cycling network to improve interconnections and safety so you can get where you are going by bike,” Watson said in his speech top council when the draft budget was tabled on Oct. 26. From paving shoulders to finishing the Champagne pathway and construction a pedestrian and cycling bridge over the Rideau River, the draft budget boasts a laundry list of projects to make getting around the city easier on two wheels.

It’s something cycling advocates say they are heartened to hear on the lips of politicians. And unlike his predecessor, Larry O’Brien, Watson isn’t reticent to hop on a bike himself. When it comes to city staff, politicians and the National Capital Commission, there was no outspoken supporter for cycling until a trip to Copenhagen a couple of years ago, said Alex deVries, vice president of local advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling. After that, “we could see very quickly a transformation on the part of politicians,” deVries said. “It’s not just the dollars, it’s in their willingness to make a bold statement like that.” While the NCC and the city are often seen as being at loggerheads with each other, cycling is the one thing that appears to have brought them together. City and NCC staff are working together on projects like the Wellington Street segregated bike lane, and there is even a working group that includes community members and meets quarterly. And if the budget is a reflection of what people – especially politicians – are thinking about, it’s going to be a good year for cyclists.

Just what the world needs – more toys

W

hen someone gives us a new toy, it’s only natural to thank him. When someone gives millions of people new toys, it’s only natural that the world thanks him. And that’s why you’re still reading, weeks after his death, tributes to the late Steve Jobs. And who can say they’re not deserved? Although he didn’t accomplish it single-handedly, Jobs made computing accessible to the average person. Before the MacIntosh computer, you had to be a bit of a geek to function easily in the computer world. The Mac made that world more friendly, which is an important contribution, given the fact that the computer world is now the world. Whether we like it or not. Many people don’t, but they’re stuck with it and having easy-to-use computers makes their lives more bearable. However, it’s not the several generations of Apple desktops and laptops that earned Steve Jobs the gratitude of millions. Those weren’t the toys he gave us. No, the inspiration for all those heartfelt tributes was the creation of the iPod and the iPhone. Those two small devices were, predictably, snapped up by early adopters and, less predictably, by just about

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town everyone else. You can measure how significant that was by thinking back to the year before the invention of the iPod and what you were doing then. That was the year 2000. Your music was probably on CDs. If you wanted to listen to music while you went for your morning run, you had to carry a bulky portable disc player or, if you were a bit behind, laboriously transfer those discs to tape cassettes to be played on your Walkman. Or, if you were one of those perhaps fortunate people untouched by technology, you listened to your CDs (or phonograph records) at home and listened to the birds when you went outside. If someone had told you, in the year 2000, that you would, within the year, be loading your CDs into the computer and then transferring songs onto a device

the size of a deck of playing cards, you wouldn’t have believed it. Now millions do it. What a toy! It’s not all good. The advent of the iPod and digitized music generally has caused a crisis in the music industry and made it more difficult for many musicians to earn a living. Fixated on their shiny toys, most people don’t seem to notice. The impact of the iPhone is more visible. You see it in people on the street who never look up, people in restaurants who never speak to their partners, people who seemingly talk to themselves in shopping centres. You hear it in electronic noises that echo in theatres. The upside is that people are connected at all times. They need never be out of touch. They can talk to their friends from a forest. They can settle every argument by Googling the answer from the tavern. The office can contact them at the church. From anywhere, they can get directions to the nearest phone store, in case there’s something newer. The benefit to humanity is difficult to measure, but no one who has the toy is going to give it up, or stop looking for the next one.

When you think about it, both these devices, the iPod and the iPhone, are things the world could quite easily get along without. That could be said of most toys. But what can’t be said about most toys is that the world economy now seems to consist of more and more companies trying to invent and market similar gadgets. This, in a world that should really be spending its resources bringing fresh water to billions who need it, eradicating diseases such as malaria and creating affordable housing in every country of the world. The world has many pressing needs and builds better phones. Toys are us. That’s probably not what Steve had in mind.

Rest in peace Jamie. I am truly sorry that you are unable to see all the love and support that you are being given. I hope you are finally at peace. Let your story be that wakeup call that society needs, that our schools need – that individuals need – to make a change.

Hubley death a wake up call for schools To the editor, My son graduated high school in June and now attends Algonquin College. To say his time in high school was enjoyable would be a stretch; however, the transition to college is the best thing that ever happened to him. He is a completely different person - happy, excited and he actually looks forward to heading off to college every day which is quite a change from his high school years. High school is brutal! There is no denying that bullying takes place in all forms and in all grades. It begins in elementary school and escalates in severity as our children grow. By the time they are in their teens, most students are either part of the problem or part of the solution. Only the strongest survive unscathed. LETTERS, see 10

Who the heck are they? Jamie was bullied because he liked figure skating instead of hockey, singing instead of video games, boys instead of girls. Why, in 2011 do we care so much about people that are different? Why do we push someone so much that the only viable option they can find is ending their own life? Jamie was only 15 years old. He had a life full of opportunity ahead of him. And we took that from him. Society did that. I can honestly say that things do and can get better after high school. Even in high school, it can get better. I found a supportive and loving group of friends, and I found my place in the school as a community. But I realize this isn’t always easy. After high school, people really do seem to grow up … for the most part. There will always be haters, but you find that there are more people who are willing to accept you than there are those who want to bring you down. Bullying in our schools is an epidemic. It’s brutal. It’s tragic. It ended a life. Does that mean anything? It ended a life. Something needs to change. It needs to change from the inside and it needs support from the outside. I know from experience that bringing in speakers or flat out telling kids that bullying is not right does not work. Society needs a wakeup call. It needs a reality check. It needs education. It needs tolerance. It needs equality.

That it is a parent’s job to take responsibility for their children goes without saying but until the professionals driving the education system realize and take fully responsibility for the students in their care during school hours, nothing will change and not near enough is done to not only prevent bullying but to end it in all schools. Lip service no longer suffices. If there does exist code of conduct and zero tolerance policies, all schools should be front and center enacting such policies to their fullest extent. Sadly, this is not the case. It is hoped that Jamie Hubley’s death will wake up those whose job it is to ensure that our schools provide a safe and secure environment for our children in order to prevent this type of tragedy from ever happening again.

turning right onto Eagleson from the Queensway. When the path finally cleared, I attempted to cross the street. I got about half way to the median and the lights changed. I saw numerous cars coming at full speed travelling north. I hesitated and stayed on the median until the next green light. I value my life! Since the unfortunate death of a young lady at this intersection just lately, there have been numerous suggestions about a pedestrian way or pedestrian overpass. I have a much simpler suggestion - it will not cost anyone any money and we can avoid lengthy debates about who is going to build what for how much and who is going to pay for it. In fact, it will cost nothing! My suggestion – lengthen the time the red traffic lights flash so that people can safely cross in a timely way and not risk losing their life. If the north/ south bound traffic has to wait an extra minute, it’s well worth saving lives. And a suggestion to Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who recently stated after the young lady’s death, the problem is not “widespread”. How many lives does it take? I challenge Mrs. Wilkinson to cross that intersection (by foot) and see how far she gets to her car. Me thinks the lady does not know of what she speaks!

Two charged after string of robberies geoff.davies@metroland.com

Ottawa police have laid 32 charges in connection with a string of store robberies, after arresting two men following a brief chase on Oct. 25. The charges stem from five robberies that took place between Sept. 2 and 20 at convenience stores and gas bars. Police arrested two men, both Ottawa residents, after attempting to stop a vehicle deemed to be acting suspiciously. The driver and one passenger fled the vehicle on foot after a brief vehicle pursuit, police said. Both suspects were arrested nearby and appeared in court on Oct. 27 to face charges stemming from that incident. Police later laid further charges connected to a string of retail robberies under investigation by the robbery unit. A 26-year-old man faces 26 charges, including five counts of robbery, two counts of possessing a dangerous weapon, pointing a firearm, resisting arrest, and six counts of breaching probation. A 25-year-old man faces seven charges, including two counts of robbery, possessing a dangerous weapon, and resisting arrest. Both men remain in custody and will appear in court on Nov. 2.

Reduce the clutter! Sell it in the Classifieds.

Police said the charges stem from five incidents: • On Sept. 2, around 3:30 a.m., three suspects robbed a store along the 6000 block of Hazeldean Road and made off with cash and cigarettes. • On Sept. 6, around 5:15 a.m., a lone male made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from a store along the 1900 block of Prince of Wales Drive. • On Sept. 8, around 2 a.m., three suspects robbed a store along the 0 block of Tartan Drive and made off with cash and cigarettes. • On Sept. 15, around 2:25 a.m., two suspects robbed a store along the 1900 block of Trim Road, making off with cash and cigarettes. • On Sept. 20, around 2:55 a.m., a lone male entered a store along the 6000 block of Hazeldean Road and made off with cash and cigarettes. Police said in many instances those involved brandished guns, but no injuries resulted from any of these robberies. These robberies remain under investigation, police said. Ottawa police said additional charges could be laid. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ottawa police robbery unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116, or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS).

The ancient art of

Ninjutsu JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

To become a ninja, one needs three things: endurance, perseverance and patience. After participating in a Ninjutsu class, I can agree. Suffering bruises, both physical and to my ego after being flipped to the ground many times, the class tested all three of those traits. Pierre Beaumier, who teaches at Ninjutsu Kanata in the Kanata Town Centre, said those three qualities are important for anyone who wants to learn the art of the ninja. “People learn to protect themselves, it’s an art of survival,” said Beaumier, who used to operate a Ninjutsu dojo in Alberta. “I’m trying to teach my students how to respond naturally to any type of attack in life.” The defensive style teaches people how to react to both physical and psychological attacks. It helps to be mentally prepared, he said. “When you get into Ninjutsu … everything gets influenced by those teachings: your way of moving, of breathing, of responding to your environment,” said Beaumier. “What you learn in the dojo during the class can be applied in all the aspects of your life.” Ninjutsu comes from two Japanese words: jutsu, meaning art or style, and nin, the essence of the ninja, said Beaumier.

“I’ve always been passionate about Japanese culture,” he said. “I started to learn Japanese language, Japanese cooking; Ninjutsu started a whole new vision for me about the culture.”

“Ninjutsu is an empiric art, passed from generation to generation,” he said. “It’s one of the oldest martial arts there is.” ART OF THE NINJA

NINJA MASTER Beaumier spent two years living in Tokyo and studying under the last living “ninja master” Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi Sensei. “What he teaches is just wonderful and I really think it can help a lot of people here,” said Beaumier, who met his wife in Japan. The two returned to Canada last year. “His teaching is really inspiring; he gives a lot of guidance.” According to Beaumier, Hatsumi teaches more than just a combat art. “His teaching about Ninjutsu is really teaching about a way of life,” said Beaumier. “You don’t only learn about how to defend yourself but you also learn how to live your life, which makes him an inspiration.” Ninjutsu is a martial art that is more than 1,000 years old.

Reporter Jessica Cunha practices a wrist hold on Brittany Bielby, of Dunrobin, during a Ninjutsu class.

Beaumier said the classes help people learn how to use everything around them to their advantage. Students learn how to use a bow staff, sabers, chains, throwing knives and other weapons. Even small items found in nature, such as acorns, can help when faced with an attacker, he said. “We’re encouraging students to touch weapons and play with weapons,” said Beaumier. “They develop skills. In the long run anything can be used in your environment.” He said Ninjutsu is not about promoting violence but learning the proper defensive techniques. “It’s a style to stop the conflict, not to start it. “What we teach is really a defensive art so we don’t try to stop our opponent with our strength but you’re trying to stop your opponent with his own strength.” Students learn how to use angles, distance and leverage to stop an attacker. “All those make you able to take on an opponent twice your size,” said Beaumier. “It teaches discipline but it teaches so much more. I think what we teach our students is a kind of freedom.” For more information, visit www.kanataninpo.ca.

City Budget

LAURA MUELLER AND JESSICA CUNHA laura.mueller@metroland.com

Ottawa will be overhauling many more of its roads in 2012 in preparation for traffic snarls during light rail construction. The city revealed its draft budget for next year on Oct. 26, and with it Mayor Jim Watson announced a new initiative called “Ottawa on the Move”: a $340-million program that will rebuild and resurface a lengthy list of roads across the city. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said everything he asked for was put in the 2012 draft budget, including the funds to continue work on Eagleson Road, Fernbank Road and Stonehaven Drive. “I have the money to continue the work on Stonehaven,” said Hubley. This includes intersection improvements and widening of the road. The work on Fernbank will be completed, including the addition of turn lanes at Eagleson. Eagleson will also be resurfaced from Cope Drive to Hazeldean Road, as will the entire length of Palomino Drive. Herzberg Road from March Road to south of Carling Avenue will also get a fresh surface. “What I focused on in my request for this budget was infrastructure dollars,” said Hubley. “Those are the highlights.” Pedestrians weren’t forgotten in the 2012 budget. After several years of only improving sidewalks when roads are rebuilt, the city will spend $4 million over the next three years on sidewalks alone. In Kanata, sidewalks on the list for construction or repairs include: Terry Fox Drive to Eagleson Road, Stonehaven Drive from Harness Lane to Bridlewood Drive, Emerald Meadows Drive from Eagleson Road to Pebble Creek Crescent, McCurdy Drive from Naismith Crescent to Do-

rey Court, McKitrick Drive from Rickey Place to Sumner Street and Bowhill from Hillhurst Place to Overlake Drive. Traffic cameras will be added at March Road and Carling Avenue. Much of that money is coming from new debt in order to keep the residential tax-rate increase to 2.39 per cent – below the 2.5 per cent limit council imposed last year. That translates to about an extra $75 per year for the average urban homeowner. Ottawa on the Move includes resurfacing more than 200 kilometres of roads between 2012 and 2014. While city treasurer Marian Simulik said the road projects are needed to ensure Ottawa’s roads can handle traffic disruptions during the construction of the central LRT system starting in 2013, and to stimulate the economy, rural and suburban roads were not forgotten. Ottawa on the Move also includes more than 70 kilometres of bicycle lanes and paved shoulders – part of a large investment in cycling infrastructure. The city plans to spend $24 million on cycling infrastructure alone over the next three years. That includes bicycles lanes or paved shoulders to Huntmar Drive.

Fare changes on the way for OC Transpo Scrapping annual and semester passes and hiking the U-pass rate for university and college students are part of a plan to restructure OC Transpo fares in 2012. Overall, transit fares would go up by 2.5 per cent next year, if the transit commission OKs the draft budget presented on

Oct. 26. Transit boss Alain Mercier said the new Presto passes expected in the spring will do away with the need for annual passes, which were discounted as an incentive for people to front the cost of a year’s worth of passes to keep them out of the lengthy lines to top up monthly passes. Annual passes only make up four per cent of the passes OC Transpo sells, Mercier said.

The new fare structure also scraps semester passes and makes the annual U-pass permanent – along with a far hike. Those passes will cost university students $180 per semester ($360 per year), up from $290 for the year in 2011-12. After a year of testing out the U-pass, OC Transpo decided the increased rate will cover the cost of providing that pass, Mercier said. The U-pass is incorpo-

Mondays Oct. 17, 24, & Nov. 7, 14 4:00 pm - 7:00pm

rated into tuition for all university students – whether they use it or not. The suggested fare for the new, flat-rate rural Para Transpo service is $8.25 in the draft budget. The draft budget also contains an extra $5.5 million to add 66,000 annual hours of service to keep pace with demand on the system. Diane Deans, transit commission chair and councillor for Gloucester-Southgate, said that money is needed to keep up with ridership growth – not to make up for cuts made this September to help save $20 million a year. The number of buses in Ottawa will go down next year – from 1,023 to 990 – but that’s because OC Transpo will have more large, high-capacity buses. Some of those buses will be

double deckers, but the city will have to wait a bit longer before those arrive. There were three spots where overpasses were going to have to be altered so the taller buses could fit through, but the bus supplier designed a new, “low-profile” double decker that will fit. But the process of designing a new type of bus is delaying production, so the double deckers won’t begin to arrive until later in 2012. Next year will also mark the start of a project to add passing tracks to the O-Train to increase service. Trains will run every eight minutes instead of every 15. By the end of 2012, the city will also have 480 new park-andride spaces – 100 at the new Scotiabank Place park-and-ride and 380 at Trim Road.

Mayor vows to fix city’s planning process in 2012 LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Ottawa’s planning process is broken, and 2012 is the year to fix it. That was the message Mayor Jim Watson delivered in his speech launching the city’s draft budget for the upcoming year. Between his positive messages about the city’s investments, Watson struck a serious tone when speaking about growth and development. “Our planning process is not working the way we need it to work,” he said. “Nobody is happy with the situation. Communities are frustrated. Industry is frustrated. Staff are frustrated.” Watson said there needs to be “a renewed focus and energy to create a service culture in planning.” Developments are one of the most common issues residents and politicians spar over at city hall, but Watson said the days of developers and

builders treating zoning and community design plans as “mere suggestions” are over. The mayor put developers on notice that the urban design review panel, a group of independent experts that makes suggestions on major urban projects, is here to stay. The city plans to finalize updated guidelines for infill homes next year – a process that started last fall. Hosting a planning summit in 2012 will also set the stage to kick off the review for the 2014 official plan update, as well as a refresh of two of the city’s major foundational documents: the transportation master plan and the infrastructure master plan. The city also plans to create a “green express lane” for developers whose building plans strive for greater environmental sustainability. Developers that include “better build” techniques, such as solar water heaters, solar panels, rainwater re-use, recycled materials and re-

Other environmental initiatives in the 2012 draft budget include: $2.4 million toward to pay for retrofits to city buildings to reduce energy costs; $450,000 for the city’s operational sustainability program and create a neighbourhood sustainability program; and $750,000 towards the ongoing task of developing a five-year environmental strategy for Ottawa.

A Canadian company beat out 12 other applicants for the Beaverbrook branch of the Ottawa Public Library expansion project, which will see the branch expand to 25,000 square-feet. Moriyama and Teshima Architects will prepare the design of a two-storey addition and renovations for library, which will be renamed as the District Library in West Ottawa. The new library is expected to open in late 2013. “They utilize a collaborative, integrated and holistic design approach that facilitates fast track, phased, on-time and onbudget project delivery,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson in a release. Public meetings on the design of the library will be held at later dates this year, she added, where public input will be welcome. The budget for the architect is just over $562,000, said Wilkinson, with the overall project slated to cost $10 million.

Wild Game Meat Cutting

COURTNEY SYMONS

De-Boned

Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson shows a map of the City of Ottawa’s master transportation plan to be implemented in full by 2031. Wilkinson devoted most of her ward council meeting on Oct. 24 to discussions surrounding the recent $22 million annually cut from OC Transpo services.

courtney.symons@metroland.com

Kanata residents voiced their opinions about OC Transpo’s recent cuts of $20 million from its operating budget at Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson’s ward council meeting at the Mlacak Centre on Oct. 24. Around 20 attendees voiced their frustrations with decreased bus routes, overcrowding in the OC Transpo park and ride on Eagleson Road, and buses heading downtown that are constantly standing room only. “The optimization for some people isn’t very optimal,� Wilkinson said, devoting most of her meeting to transit talk so that she could bring forward local frustrations to the city’s transit commission of which she is a member. Wilkinson said that negotiations are in the works to build a new OC Transpo park and ride in Kanata North, which should be constructed within the next couple of years. OC Transpo has also ordered more double-decker buses, which have 82 seats compared with 55 on articulated buses. “But that doesn’t help you right now when your buses are overcrowded,� Wilkinson said. OC Transpo ridership increased by 6.4 per cent this August compared to August of 2010, Wilkinson said. “They cut the service, and then at the same time we had a surge of new riders, and the combination was dynamite,� she said. Chris Busby lives on Murphy’s Side Road in Kanata and called the town “the Wild West.� He said that the Eagleson park and ride is riddled with problems, including overcrowding, reckless driving and illegal parking – particularly in the southern end of the lot near the National Capital Commission protected lands where the buses pick up passengers. “People are so frustrated and angry,� Busby said. “That whole southern end needs to be rethought or there are going to be more deaths there. Not even on the road, but right in the park and ride. That’s going to be the next one.� Busby referred to the death of 17year-old Serena Deng who was struck

by a pick-up truck while crossing Eagleson Road in front of the park and ride this September. Another attendee, Diana Lester, who lives in Kanata Lakes and commutes to work on Carling Avenue, said the Route 65, which runs from Kanata to downtown, used to have six runs per day but was cut to only three. Lester said what used to be a 45-minute commute has turned into a 70-minute journey, making it nearly impossible for her to catch a transfer and get to work on time. “It was making me so angry, I was crying some nights,� she said. “I couldn’t do it anymore.� She now carpools to work with a colleague. “I’m really upset that they’ve taken away my options,� she said. Megan Cornell, the Liberal candidate for Carleton-Mississippi Mills in the recent provincial election, attended the meeting to voice her concerns about Route 96, which runs from Hurdman to Terry Fox. “I think the 96 is abysmal,� Cornell said. “It’s horribly unsuited for the population it serves. You can take it any time of day and it’s standing room only.� Other concerns expressed at the meeting included the university bus passes that are now being issued to Carleton and University of Ottawa students, which give students access to express buses that they previously might not have taken.

MAKE YOUR COMMERCIAL QUALITY WINES AT OUR PLACE

Although it is illegal to turn right on a red light heading out of the Eagleson park and ride, many drivers do it all the time, another concern of various residents at the meeting. Busby suggested re-working the southern lot at the park and ride, creating a drop-off loop that would make it safer and less crowded for people to drop off relatives or friends at the bus stop. He also suggested that gold level parking, which costs $50 per month and guarantees a parking spot in the park and ride, should be moved entirely into the southern lot, shifting all of the regular parking to the northern lot. Other residents suggested the installation of a red light camera at the Eagleson lights to combat the high frequency of illegal right-hand turns. An express bus route to Terry Fox would help to alleviate some of the stress at the Eagleson park and ride, many residents said. Wilkinson suggested carpooling as an option instead of taking the bus, and urged attendees to attend transit commission meetings and to continue to speak up on the issue. “Keep e-mailing them,� Wilkinson told her audience on Oct. 24. “Do it on a daily basis if you have to.� Wilkinson said that the next round of changes to OC Transpo routes would most likely be implemented in January of 2012. Forty per cent of Kanata residents use the bus system, Wilkinson said.

Maggie’s Getting Married opens Nov. 8 CAROLINE JOHNSTONE Kanata Theatre

The Kanata Theatre’s production of “Maggie’s Getting Married” is generating some real excitement as opening night draws near. This romantic comedy by Norm Foster pulls on our heartstrings as a sweet, shy, and somewhat insecure young lady spends the eve of her wedding day with her family. Foster’s characters are believable and easy for the audience to identify with, conveying strengths and weaknesses, flaws and lessons, tears and laughter, and finding ways to make sure that laughter has the last laugh. Right now, the energy behind the doors of the Kanata Theatre is focused on bringing those characters and their story to life. The “Maggie’s Getting Married” cast is remarkable in its synergy, conveying a real sense of family, fun, camaraderie, caring, and passion with, yes, a touch of sibling rivalry thrown in for good measure. The inspired director, Dorothy Gardner, is pushing all the right buttons to bring out the very best in this amazing ensemble, and the Kanata Theatre’s production experts are, as always, taking all the right steps to ensure that the whole package is wrapped up just as it should be. This is the sixth play Dorothy Gardner has directed for Kanata Theatre, and has been variously involved in over two dozen other productions. This experience, combined with Dorothy’s steadfast commitment and

All Saints Catholic High School is hosting its 10th Annual Craft Fair on Saturday, Nov. 5, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 5115 Kanata Ave. This charity fundraiser and community building event has made a significant difference to those less fortunate, both at home and abroad. We have helped a community centre/educational facility become independent through seven years of support, annually we have helped the Kanata Food Cupboard, we have donated to St. Elizabeth Elementary - our board sister school and have been instrumental in building a birthing centre in the Gambia. Again this year, funds raised will go toward the support of the school’s efforts toward the Kanata Food Cupboard Christmas Hampers. We will also support a local group of women – Grands & Friends – who work to raise funds and awareness on behalf of African Grandmothers who are left to raise millions of orphaned children due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. We are very proud that last year’s event provided us with the opportunity to make a contribution of~$2,000. in support of a birthing centre in Gambia, and over $500 and 1000 cans towards the Kanata Food Cupboard Christmas hampers. As well $1,000 was given to the Dominican Experience group of All Saints to go towards building a school in the Dominican Republic. The fair features over 100 tables of treasures handmade by Crafters & Artisans from Ontario and Quebec. A supervised child’s play area, cafe, and raffles are just some of the added features of this event. Admission is a donation of a non-perishable item or $1. Come on out and join the fun.

The Kanata Knights have advanced to the National Capital Amateur Football Association peewee championship after beating the Orleans Bengals 20-6 in the league semifinals at the Nepean Sportsplex on Friday, Oct. 28. The Knights were scheduled to play the Gatineau Vikings at Gatineau-Mont Bleu Field in Gatineau on Wednesday, Nov. 2 (after the Kourier-Standard went to press). The Knights semifinal matchup was an exciting game from the first kick-off to the final whistle. The Knights and Bengals answered each other touchdown for touchdown through the entire first half of the game before the Knights’ began their breakaway advance

towards the win. Veteran Joey McKiernan ran for six touchdowns and a two-point conversion for a total of 38 points on the board. An impressive touchdown from Myles Anderson after a pass interception added the seventh touchdown. The remaining Knights’ points came from successful point after kicks by Dylan Walker - a new role for him. The Knights’ defence was stellar in keeping the Bengals at bay through bangon tackles, impressive interceptions and solid blocking. With the win, the Knights advanced to the C cup championship, which was played on Wednesday. Read next-week’s Kourier-Standard for the results.

And, if this were not enough, customers could even receive a spinal scan courtesy of Hazeldean Family Chiropractic. Yes, it was a mixed offering indeed that was provided for customers at the “Connecting Customers” event held at the TD Canada Trust branch at the Farm Boy Market Square on Hazeldean Road in Kanata on Friday, Oct. 28. The chief focus of the event was the provision of 200 gift bags to customers. These gift bags, printed with the name and downtown and Stittsville locations of vacuum cleaner retailer Vac Shack, contained a variety of information and giveaway items from businesses that deal with TD Canada Trust. These ranged from a water bottle from Air Zone to menu information from la Cucina Ristorante on Hazeldean Road including a 15 percent off coupon to a $5 off coupon from the Fairfield IDA Pharmacy on Hazeldean Road. This is all part of a TD Canada Trust initiative to connect its customers with local businesses that deal with TD Canada Trust in the hope that, as TD Canada Trust says to participating businesses, “Our customers could become your customers.” Hazeldean Family Chiropractic had a

Football field named after 30-year Knights’ volunteer City pays tribute to long-time Knights coach Bob Barr JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

A local football legend was paid tribute in Kanata this fall with a football field named in his honour. The field near the Kanata South Recreation Complex, at 100 Walter Baker Pl., was renamed the Robert Barr Football Field in honour of the man’s long-time work with the Kanata Knights Football Club. “During this time, he has volunteered countless hours and has touched the lives of more than 1,000 youth through his leadership and high moral standards,” said the city in a press release. “He believes in helping players of all levels of skill, encouraging excellence and sportsmanship both on and off the field.” Over the past 30 years, Robert (Bob) Barr has coached every level within the Knights organization with the exception of Midget and was president of the club for a period of time. “I’m obviously very proud,” said Barr about the naming.

“First of all it’s very humbling, but it was overwhelming as well. It seemed too much.” Barr accepted the honour on behalf of several people who weren’t in attendance including Ken Charter and Mike McGuire, the first two coaches Barr worked with, who have both have passed away; Russel Anchetta, who was killed in a car accident when he was 10; and Emilie Joinette, a former cheerleader with the Knights, who passed away after a life-long battle with Cystic Fibrosis in 2009. He said three players had also been lost to suicide over the years. “We’ve lost some kids along the way,” said Barr. “I accepted on behalf of several people who weren’t there.” That night, the midget team played the first game on the new field. “They ended up winning the game in overtime and ended up giving me the game ball,” said Barr. “It was awesome.” 30 YEARS Barr started coaching when

his son Curtis began playing football at the age of eight. “I happened to be standing to the side during a practice,” said the Beaverbrook resident, adding one of the coaches came over asked him to help. “That was pretty much it. “I just kinda hung around and forgot to leave.” The most rewarding part about coaching was watching the kids grow, he said. “It’s seeing these guys when they come back 15, 20 years later and they’re talking about how the discipline of football…helped them get ready,” said Barr. Kids he used to coach have gone on to become football players in the Canadian Football League, soldiers, doctors and police officers. “It’s a wide spectrum of seeing how the kids turned out,” said Barr. “It’s fun to see the kids come back and see what they’ve done over the time.” Barr’s been recognized by former players while travelling outside the city. “I’ll have kids come up to

It’s nice to be remembered like that.” After coaching up to six nights a week during the football season and a second grand-

daughter on the way, Barr is retiring as a coach but plans to continue to be involved with the executive. “It was a lot of nights,” said Barr. “I think I owe my wife something like two and half years of time. And she’s collecting.” R0021162120

Many from the 20-plus person fitness class, taught by Susan Kunstadt at the Eva James Memorial Community Centre, have been attending for over 20 years because of the fun they have and the friends they’ve made. The members, all of whom were eager to speak about their experiences, dressed up in costume for their class on Halloween Monday, Oct. 31. “The social is as important as the fitness,” said Kristen Timmins, who dressed up as part of a pumpkin pair in black and orange. “Everyone is friendly. Susan made fitness fun.” Timmins, now 61, started attending the class 30 years ago. “We’ve aged gracefully with Susan,” she said. Linda Sallie, also dressed as a pumpkin, said she gave up smoking 28 years ago in order to continue taking the classes. When she first started, she’d be in the back of the class huffing and puffing during the workout. “I quit smoking because I liked her class better than cigarettes,” said 65-year-old Sallie. “You can’t really do both.” Kunstadt has adapted her teaching over the years as the class has aged. “As we grew older, Susan rec-

WORLD CHAMPION Kunstadt’s classes have also produced a world record-holder in duathlon competitions. Jane Armstrong attended her first fitness class with Kunstadt 25 years ago. A figure skating coach, Armstrong took to the running portions of the class.

Now 79, he said her classes have helped him stay in shape. One member fondly remembered the beginning of her training, which started back in 1979.

As two of the first residents of Bridlewood, Marnie Van Steen, 64, said Kunstadt invited her to the local playground with her children. “We started exercising in the park,” said Van Steen. Now, they exercise together during the three-day a week classes, which alternate between cardio, stretching, floor and circuit training. Anne Roche, who dressed up

The Canadian Federation of University Women/Kanata will host a talk about protest music focused on the abolition and civil rights movement in the United States in the 1960s at St. John’s Anglican Church on Nov. 10. Dr. Stephen Richer, a retired professor and former chair of the sociology and anthropology department at Carleton University, will deliver the history talk, using his banjo, starting with the roles of spirituals in the development of protest songs. Participants will be asked to sing along to illustrate the power of collective voice. Richer has written seven books and teaches a course about protest music at the university. He has been a folk/protest singer since he was 18. The event starts at 9:30 a.m. and a light breakfast is included in the $15 ticket price. For more information and to reserve tickets call 613-591-3092 or 613-592-8957.

as a pirate, said she enjoys the class because of the people. “(It’s) a great bunch,” she said, adding she’s been attending the class for more than 20 years. “I’ve lost count. Susan is just so motivational and inspiring.” Suzanne Perry, one of the newest members of the group, only joined two weeks ago but said she’s already feeling the love.

“She inspired me to take it a step further,” she said. Armstrong entered marathons and eventually started to compete in duathlons, which includes running and biking, at the age of 40. Now 57, Armstrong holds the world record for most completed consecutive duathlon championships. “I’ve completed 18 world championships in 18 years,” said Armstrong. “If I hadn’t joined Susan’s class I might not have become a runner. “Susan was a role model and source of inspiration for me.”

Gallery offers patrons gift of art KANATA CIVIC ART GALLERY Christmas is fast approaching and with it the quest of finding something unique for the special people on your gift list. The Gift of Art Festival and Sale will provide you with the opportunity to choose the perfect gift for someone you love, add to your works of art or start your own collection of fine art! The Gift of Art is a November tradition presented by the talented artists of the Kanata Civic Art Gallery held in the halls of the Mlacak Centre. Twenty one artists will be participating in this eighteenth annual festival, including three of the four artists juried into the gallery earlier this

year. Richard Murphy, Gina Bielinski, and Barbora Balaban will all have on display their specific brand of artistic expression. Murphy works to create images that combine timeless beauty with modern presentation through traditional photographic film and digital manipulation. Bielinski explores ways in which to interpret reality, the result is realism with an abstract bent. Inspired by the beauty of nature, Barbora’s three-dimensional work in clay is innovative. Wheel thrown pieces are intentionally distorted then texture is added by folding, stamping and carving more clay. The result are one of a kind decorative pieces com-

We regularly hear concerns about the rising costs of hydro these days and there is growing interest in the use of solar technology to reduce our dependence on hydro electricity. At this month’s meeting of the March Rural Community Association we will hear from Tom Levy, a local resident who has lived off the grid in his new home since 2007. Tom will give a brief introduction into the what, why, when, and how regarding his solar system, and will answer questions from the audience. At our October meeting we had a very interesting presentation on a different aspect of solar systems by Dave Gerwing regarding different kinds of solar systems that are being used for the feed in tarriff (FIT) program. A lively discussion followed, with many questions about the cost, effect of snow on the panels, economic benefits, etc. We hope to continue this discussion at this month’s meeting, with a focus on the capture of solar energy for home use. We will also elect our directors and executive for the coming year. Hope to see you on Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m., at the Old Town Hall, 821 March Rd. All are welcome to join us, so invite your neighbours, and meet your community association representatives.

City selects public art for K-north recreation complex CITY OF OTTAWA The city has selected three sculptures from a public arts competition for the Kanata North recreation complex, now under construction at 4101 Innovation Dr.

The sculptures will be integrated into different areas of the complex following the end of construction in 2013. An art selection committee selected, Jean-Yves Vigneau, Maskull Lasserre and the team of Anna Williams and Erin Robertson as the wining artists in the

“Thank you Neilcorp! We got exactly what we wanted.” Art and Annie Gosling, Neilcorp Homeowners since 2010

public art competition. Chase, a sculpture installation by Anna Williams and Erin Robertson consisting of seven red foxes cast in bronze and finished with a realistic patina, will crown the entrance of the complex. Drawing upon the regional environment and proximity of the facility to Trillium Woods, Williams and Robertson will capture athletic grace and beauty rooted in our ever changing connection to the natural world. Reminiscent of the rhythm and joys of gliding across water, Jean-Yves Vigneau’s sculpture Skiff will be suspended in the recreation complex. The nautical theme of the sculpture is in perfect harmony with the function of the facility. Skiff will further animate the space as it casts shadows appearing from below as a strange flying fish or a water bug. Maskull Lasserre’s three-part installation will animate the space facing the Trillium Woods on the publicly accessible patio of the rear roof. Inspired by the Tai Chi movement “Cloud hands”, this installation consists of a pair of public

binoculars, a life size bronze figure and a cloud form fabricated from stainless steel. When viewed through the binoculars, all elements of the installation will align creating the illusion that the cloud emanates from the figure’s hands. This work is suggestive of the human connection to nature that is mediated through recreational activity. Ottawa’s Public Art Program commissions artists’ works for display in public spaces. One percent of funds for municipal development projects is set aside for public art in order to enhance the unique character of the space giving it a sense of identity while ensuring that art is accessible to everyone. The art selection committee took residents’ feedback and comments into consideration prior to selecting the winning artists’ proposals. Selection criteria included artistic excellence, experience of the artist, site integration, and sustainability. For more information about the new public art visit ottawa.ca/arts or call 311.
