Tea Party comments build steam Ottawa Tories remain mum on brewing MacLaren controversy WATERLOO WIN



ENTREPRENEUR A nine-year-old Bridlewood boy has started his own business to save money for university.

Ottawa-area Tories were hesitant to wade into the controversy growing around Carleton-Mississippi Mills candidate Jack MacLaren this week. Remarks made by former Ontario PC premier Ernie Eves at an appreciation dinner for MPP Norm Sterling have shown a growing division within the Tory party. Eves criticized his own party for failing to defend Sterling, a 34-year Queen’s Park veteran, who was ousted during the riding’s nomination process on March 31. MacLaren, a far-right wing politician associated with the Ontario Landowners Association, won the bitter nomination battle. “I don’t care who hears this,” said Eves. “The treatment that Norm got from his own party was not very polite, was not fair, it was not loyal, it was not compassionate, it was not even and it was not honest,” Eves said during a dinner for Sterling at the Canadian Golf and Country Club in Stittsville on Aug. 25. Eves later clarified his comments on a Toronto talk radio show, saying that “Tea Party” elements within the Conservatives were behind the poor treatment of Sterling. In an interview with this newspaper last November, MacLaren said he was comfortable with the comparison’s between his riding association and the U.S. libertarian Tea Party.

ment on Eve’s statements when contacted by the Kourier-Standard. But Carleton-Mississippi Mills Liberal candidate Megan Cornell said she wasn’t surprised by Eves’ remarks because she has heard similar concerns from residents throughout the riding. Cornell said the comments expose the divisions in the PC Party which had led her to throw her hat back into the ring for this election. “There was a lot of respect for Norm and how he did politics,” Cornell said. “It’s not just how Norm was treated but what Jack is offering. There is a fairly common sentiment in the riding that that’s not at all what we’re about here.” That worry isn’t just shared by Liberal supporters, Cornell said. “Certainly the concern I am hearing from a really large number of Progressive Conservatives in the riding is that the name of the party and the membership of the party has been sort of co-opted by this group who figured out how to, kind of, manipulate the political process and get their candidate in and now are

MacLaren said it was “fair” to compare the local Tories’ move to supplant the riding’s old guard with the Tea Party’s attempt to move the U.S. Republican party further to the right and the Wild Rose party’s attempt to pull Alberta politics in the same direction. “All across the western world countries are willing stand up a little more. I am willing to fight for my culture and heritage and what my forefathers fought for,” MacLaren said at the time. TORY CANDIDATES MUM Brad McNulty, the communication’s director with MacLaren’s campaign, said MacLaren didn’t want to comment on Eves’ remarks because he wasn’t at the Aug. 25 dinner. “He wishes Norm the best, whatever he decides to do with his career,” McNulty said. “He is looking forward right now.” In fact, none of the Tory MPPs from surrounding areas were willing to com-

hoping that no one notices who, in fact, the PC candidate is,” Cornell said. Cornell said Progressive Conservatives are coming to her side and some prominent Tories are expected to publically endorse her in the coming weeks. Regardless, Eves is “well respected” and his comments will undoubtedly have an impact on the campaign, Cornell said. FAMILY CONTESTS TOUGH Tory leader Tim Hudak addressed Eves’ comments during an Aug. 31 media scrum in Toronto, saying MacLaren was chosen by party members. “Everybody is held to account by the local membership. And local members choose who the candidates are,” he said. Hudak said it is “tough” when parties “have a contest within the family.” “But it is democracy, and democracy can sometimes be messy,” Hudak said. “But we have a democratic party and we will be working with Jack MacLaren to win that seat as part of a PC government.”

Hudak said Sterling served his province extraordinarily well as a respected cabinet minister. “He’s had impacts on positive developments in health care and the environment and he was a dean of the legislature,” Hudak said. A representative from Norm Sterling’s Queen’s Park office said the MPP declined to comment on the matter. Lisa McLeod, conservative MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean, did not respond to a request for comment. Nearby Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington PC MPP Randy Hillier, himself a former Ontario Landowners Association member and founder, was not available for comment before this newspaper’s deadline. However, the Ontario Liberal Party was quick to send out a press release when Hillier re-posted a blog entry by Jeff Goodall entitled “Pinko re-tread Ernie Eves tries to sabotage Ontario PC’s.” With files from Robert Benzie, Toronto Star John Brummell and Derek Dunn.

A month after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York’s World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, 82-year-old Edna Miller sat in her home in Citrus Falls, Fla., stitching a memorial for the victims and the heroes of that terrible day. “She was very moved by what happened and all the poor people who were killed by the accident,” said Albert Miller, Edna’s husband. “She saw a picture of the tower collapsing and all the firefighters on top of it looking for (other) firefighters,” he said. “She decided to make a needlework of it.” For the next eight months – sometimes five hours a day – Edna worked on her needlepoint piece, her fingers moving steadily as she spoke to the firefighters created by her needle. “She was talking to them and praising them for what they do,” said Albert. It took eight months of work, but when it was finished, a photograph of the needlepoint artwork went on exhibition on an Internet 9/11 memorial website. Over the years, Miller, who would move to Kanata in 2005, where she is now a resident of Chartwell’s Kanata in Briarbrook, received many offers to purchase the artwork. But Edna refused them all – she wanted to give the piece to a New York City firefighter. Edna finally found a suitable recipient during an ocean cruise last March, when she met Frances and Don Weir, a retired New York City firefighter. “The light went on in my wife,” said Albert. “She said that would be a good opportunity to donate this work to the couple.” The two couples met in one of the dining rooms on the ship. “Next to us at a little table for two were the Millers,” said Frances. “We started talking and little by little we got to know each other.” Over the course of getting acquainted, it was mentioned that Don used to be a firefighter with Engine 290 in Brooklyn, NY, with his brother. “As soon as I said that, she said, ‘I’ve been waiting to meet you for years’,” said Frances. “She said, ‘I have something I want to give you’.” The entire family, including the Weirs’ children, was present when they opened the package from the Millers. “We all saw it and we were all just knocked out of our socks,” said Frances. “Everybody said ‘Oh my God,’ that was the first thing out of our mouths; look at the detail. “I can’t believe all the work and this woman just gave it to strangers.” The needlepoint hangs in the Weirs’ dining room where visitors can see the 9/11 piece. “We felt so humbled by this beautiful, generous gift from a stranger,” said Frances. “He (Don) felt so honoured to be the recipient of this gift that took her six months to create.” Don was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy, a rare degenerative disease that attacks certain areas Angie Osika Sales Representative Gerry Osika Broker

The disease, which is not curable, is not related to his past profession as a firefighter, said Frances. She added she promised Edna the needlework would always hang in the home of a New York City firefighter. “I’m going to touch base with some of the fellas in (Engine) 290 in Brooklyn,” said Frances. “When Don does pass, I’m going to make sure that it goes to 290 and I’m going to make sure it hangs in the hall there. I promised it would always be in the home of a fireman. What’s better than a home at 290 with all the firemen there?” Edna, who is in hospital and was unavailable for an interview, has created pieces of needlepoint art since she was 17 years old, when she produced one of her first pieces, Tulips. Edna was born in the Netherlands and came to Canada in 1972 – living in Ottawa, Smiths Falls and Elliot Lake before eventually settling in Kanata. The Briarbrook artist has created several needlepoint pieces of old buildings in Smiths Falls, using photographs provided by her husband.

LET’S MAKE CANCER HISTORY For information about cancer, services or to make a donation



As students start to think about the new school year, city council is beginning to think about its new budget year. Mayor Jim Watson wants public consultation on the 2012 budget to start this September. He set up an email account,, to solicit early comments and suggestions for the city’s spending priorities. The draft budget is expected to be released on Oct. 26. Each department’s budget will be presented to the committee that oversees it – similar to the process that was used for the budget this year. Community consultations will begin shortly afterwards, with four meetings scheduled for Nov. 1 to 4. The meetings will be spread across the city in the east, west and south, with a central meeting planned for city hall. The locations of the meetings will allow rural residents to attend “with relative ease,” according to a city report. More consultation will take place throughout November (Nov. 7 to 28) as each standing committee considers its draft budget. Council will consider approval of the final budget on Nov. 30. City council agreed to raise the municipal portion of the tax bill by no more than 2.5 per cent each year of this term of office – a promise Watson made during the 2010 election campaign. For the upcoming budget, nondiscretionary costs associated with maintaining existing city services should be considered the top priority, according to a city staff report. Council will also be looking to set out a number of “strategic initiatives” funded by the money the city receives thanks to the province’s uploading agreement. The city received a windfall of $25 million from that agreement last year ($14 million of which was directed at housing projects), but Ottawa is set to add a smaller influx of $5 million in 2012. Ottawa will get $120 million annually from the agreement by 2018.

wanted to help friends in need,” Watson said. “It was an emotional sight to see and this exhibit does a magnificent job to commemorate that day.” Jacobson and the embassy are honoring the bond of friendship between the neighbouring countries. “In a moment of tragedy, the citizens of the United States knew they were not alone,” Jacobson said. “Suddenly, we all stood together across the boarder.” Jacobson will visit Gander, N.L., on Sept. 11 to meet with the families that opened their homes, schools and community to more than 6,200 stranded passengers whose flights were diverted on the day of the attacks because the U.S. closed their airspace. The exhibit will remain on the gates of the embassy until the end of the month.

Taken together, they became a powerful symbol of solidarity.” Jacobson hopes the exhibit will celebrate the spirit and resilience which spread all the way from his country to the embassy at 490 Sussex Dr. Mayor Jim Watson, federal environment minister Peter Kent, city councillors and staff and the chiefs of Ottawa fire, police and paramedic services came to mark the occasion. “Today we turn our thoughts to the survivors and those who perished,” Kent said. Watson recalled what he was doing the day of the attacks and how he, like many others, was glued to the television, watching the events unfold. “Ten years ago, for one day, Canadians

Photos of flowers, children’s drawings and letters surround the United States Embassy gates in anticipation of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in New York. As part of the commemorations, embassy staff unveiled an exhibit on Sept. 2 that pays tribute to Canada’s role in helping both residents of New York and citizens of the U.S. on that fateful day. Thank you, Canada: A 9/11 Commemorative Photo Exhibit is a collection of photos taken from the days and weeks that followed the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001. David Jacobson, the U.S. ambassador, wanted to show his country’s gratitude for the comfort Canadians offered on that day. “Along the length of this building, Canadians placed bouquets of flowers,” Jacobson said. “They left candles, red, white and blue balloons, stuffed animals, drawings by children and the heartfelt words of men and women inscribed on homemade cards - words of sorrow and elegy, words of support and of

City starts work on budget



Kanata Kourier-Standard - SEPTEMBER 08, 2011


Squeaky wheel gets the grease


here are three inevitable things in life: death, taxes and people who complain about taxes. Every year after the City of Ottawa puts out its budget plan, hundreds of people make the trek to city hall to decry cuts to various services and programs. Sometimes that works. Often, the information comes a little late in the game for councillors, and the changes go through anyway. Individuals dead set against tax hikes and community groups worried about cuts to services and programs might want to be a little proactive this year instead of reactive. If you want the city to preserve a department’s or program’s budget line, contact your councillor or email The councillor, elected by you (or despite you) is at least somewhat politically tethered to the wishes of their constituents. If a councillor receives a thousand emails demanding the funding of a $100-million dog shampooing beauty parlour and no other emails or phone calls about other issues, guess what?

Your ward is probably in line for a $100-million canine beauty parlour and a 10 per cent tax hike to pay for it. Sound absurd? Well, over the past decade staff have come up with some pretty strange suggestions to pare the budget, ranging from cuts to community rink maintenance to closing local library branches. If you want council to hold the line on taxes — give your councillor a call. But, as Mayor Jim Watson said during the last round of budget talks, if you are demanding no cuts to one budget area, be prepared to offer suggestions where the city can cut programs or services. Keep in mind, this council is committed to limiting a tax increase to below 2.5 per cent. Translation: the cuts, they are a coming (sung to the tune of Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a Changin’”). And council has a limited scope to what they can cut: they must keep their hands off essential services. The beginning of September is also the start of the city’s budget season, with only three months until the budget is set for final approval. Remember: the sqeaky wheel gets the grease.


When weather becomes more than idle chatter


verybody talks about the weather, they always say. But this year, everybody really does talk about the weather. From big winds to big rains to big droughts, the weather has been all over the news and all over our conversation. Mind you, the news media always make a big deal out of the weather – was there ever a year when the Queensway was not a skating rink, when Old Man Winter’s icy fingers did not grip the city, when summer did not send a furnace blast of hot air across the region? But it has been different in the past year. Severe drought in Somalia coinciding with photographs just the other day of New York City streets under water. Tornado zones in the U.S. experiencing many times the normal occurrence of tornadoes. The most severe flooding on record in places such as Manitoba. And then: earthquakes in places that don’t normally get earthquakes and, in the places that do normally get earthquakes, such as Japan, earthquakes large enough to cause death, destruction and a crippling of the entire economy. The weather suddenly is worth talking about, not just in idle conversation, but in concrete terms, involving such things as flooded basements, power outages and KANATA

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town trees falling down. And that’s not just in Japan, but the Ottawa Valley too. It used to be that Canadians felt immune from severe weather. Sure, there was the cold, but it was predictable and it didn’t last all year. And as a reward for suffering through the winter, we got a kind of exemption, we felt, from the tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and earthquakes that afflicted other, usually warmer parts of the world. There was an advantage, we always felt, to not living in Paradise. It is less so now. Even in the Ottawa Valley, where the hurricanes don’t reach and the flooding is usually minimal, we’ve had winds and water at a level high enough to be more than an inconvenience. Everyone remembers what fell down during the sudden windstorm during Bluesfest. Those with slightly longer

memories will remember the rain and flooding that hit many basements in late winter. Tornadoes have been closer by than we’re used to and there have been, in the last year and a half, two significant earthquakes, one large enough to send people out of downtown office buildings and into the streets. Everyone talks about the weather, and now the talk is about more than whether it will be a nice day for a picnic tomorrow. The other half of that old saying about the weather, often attributed to Mark Twain, is that nobody every does anything about it. Actually some people have been asking governments to do something about it for years. Those would be the members of the climate change movement, people concerned that our activities on the planet, particularly our consumption of fossil fuels, is wreaking havoc with the environment. For a while, their fears were expressed as concern about “global warming,” something that felt more or less benign to lots of people, particularly those in cold climates. Global warming? Does that mean shorter winters, golf in February? What’s not to like? More recently, the focus has shifted to climate change. Climate change does not

mean golf in February. It means more violent extremes of weather. It means more tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and torrential rains. Even in more peaceful climates, such as ours, it means the power going out more often, more trees falling down, more water in the basement and on the streets. There is no shortage of people to deny the existence of climate change, of course, some of them quite reputable. But as more and more people experience the kind of extreme weather we have been seeing, the issue becomes less abstract. Thus, more and more people are going to be talking about the weather. And demanding that somebody do something about it.

To the editor, Re: Ouster of Norm Sterling by Tories Disgraceful, Sept. 1, KourierStandard. This article which quotes all the former echelon of the PC party of Ontario shows how out of touch they are with democracy. First of all we mean no disrespect to Mr. Sterling but is it disloyal when your constituency speaks up and disagrees with the PC party elite?

As farmers I can’t wait to see how Mr. Hudak will represent our local needs for renewable power or is he just going to rely on the oil and nuclear industries to do this? I am really tired of paying off those large companies for their greed and mistakes. As a small farmer I am taking all the risk with a government/OPA FIT program while Hudak fiddles in Toronto.

MICHELLE NASH The Ottawa Riverkeepers have received an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant to help promote and analyze data from the organization’s 900-kilometre trip down the Ottawa River that got underway in early July. Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown has been leading a team, which includes scientists, canoe experts and historians on the first river-long study of the waterway, dubbed the Great River Project. The three-month long trip that began on July 4 is studying the state of the Ottawa River from Fort Temiscamingue, Que. to Montreal where the river flows into the St. Lawrence River. Natasha Wilson, executive director of the Ottawa Riverkeepers, said the $58,000 grant will offer the organization the ability to pay for the trip as well as have the funds to analyze data collected and educate the public about the results. “This money will be used to help fund the community events, education and materials needed to complete this journey,” Wilson said. The Ottawa Riverkeepers have been receiving funding from foundation since 2002, money Wilson said is integral to promote the importance of keeping the watershed safe. The expedition has already covered the first 300 kilometres of the river and the third stage of the five-leg journey got underway on Aug. 13. The funding has also allowed the Riverkeepers to invite 10 students to participate in the current leg of the project. “This money is being used to get students on the water,” Wilson said. “To make them ambassadors of the Ottawa River and hopefully become future leaders of keeping the watershed safe.

This move would be more in line with their less than critical thinking idelogy? The PC party is not the party my dad and grandfather voted for.

A former A.Y. Jackson Secondary School graduate has designed the winning entry to improve the main entrance of the University of Waterloo’s south campus. Jacqueline Doucet, a third year honours civil engineering co-op student at the university located in Waterloo, Ont., was part of the four-person team that created the first-place proposal. “I’m so proud of my team and the work that we’ve accomplished,” said 20-year-old Doucet in an email. “We worked really hard and it will be surreal to stand next to our design and see it used by the university for years to come.” Last November, university officials announced the i3 Challenge – for innovate, integrate and implement – to improve the entrance to the south campus. The idea was to create a more visually inspiring area that would cost under $100,000 to implement.

Committee to hold Kanata Race Day fundraiser Rec centre needs $2 million to build two more pool lanes JESSICA CUNHA

The Kanata North recreation complex committee is still looking to raise around $2-million for the two-lane pool extension. The addition will take the pool from six to eight lanes, which would provide a venue for regional, provincial and national swimming competitions, as well as have the necessary requirements for those with physical disabilities. “(We want) to accommodate everybody,” said Craig Gauthier, board director for the complex. “We want to make sure nobody gets left out.” He said it’s not possible to build the two-lane additions

after the centre is built, so the committee is looking to raise the funds before any building starts. “We want to fulfill the need of both the recreational and competitive athletes,” said Gauthier. “Although the pool will be a main focal point we want to use it to show that the whole place will be accessible.” The Sports4 Kanata Race Day, on Sunday, Sept. 11, is a chance for people in the community to connect with the complex, said Gauthier. “We want to make this complex an epicentre of Kanata north,” he said. “Kanata Race Day will allow them to be a part of something. People will support what they help build. When you get the community involved they actually feel like a part of it.” Gauthier said the committee is also holding a contest for people who share their stories of recreation and fitness.

“Basically what we want to do is encourage the community to share what recreation means to them,” he said. “We just really want to engage the community. We really want to get them to feel good about themselves and get back to the grassroots of recreation.” A video camera will be circulating on the day of the race where people can share how recreation has changed their lives. People can also upload their stories via the Facebook page (Building Recreation) or by emailing “It’s not meant to be a competition as to who has the best story. We want to generate buzz about the event,” said Gauthier. “It’s about hearing the voice of the people and really understanding what they want and how it will benefit them.” For more information about File photo the race, visit www.Kanata- The second annual Kanata Race Day to raise funds and awareness about the new Kanata North recreation centre is set for Sunday, Sept. 11.



Work could begin as early as this fall: Wilkinson JESSICA CUNHA

Site work for the new Kanata North recreation centre could begin as early as this fall if the final plan is approved by the city. Toronto company Bondfield Construction was awarded the tender for the new complex, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. The company has built around 18 recreation centres in Ontario, including the Clarence-Rockland Recreational and Cultural Centre. Before the company breaks ground,

the city must approve the final site plan for the new complex. “After the city approves they can start,” said Wilkinson. The site work could start as early as this fall, with construction of the building starting in the spring, she said. “They want to move as quickly as possible,” said Wilkinson. Bondfield will be responsible for building the recreation centre, the parking lot and constructing the surrounding property, including the soccer field, playground, skate park and outdoor basket ball courts. The completion date for the Kanata North complex is no later than Sept. 2013, said Wilkinson, adding it could be completed earlier. Earlier this year, the City of Ottawa said plans to build the recreation com-

plex would be delayed after the National Capital Region YMCA announced it was pulling $6-million in funding for the project. City council told staff to revise the centre’s design to keep within the project’s $43.14-million budget. The project’s architect was forced to shave 1,395 square metres off the complex’s original 9,846-square-metre building, and scrap plans to build family and personal fitness areas, a running track and an expanded cardio area. But most of the original plan was kept intact, which included an eight-lane swimming

pool and a double gymnasium. Bondfield Construction was unavailable for comment. SCULPTURE GARDEN Wilkinson said she’s looking at the possibility of adding a sculpture garden to the grounds of the recreation centre. The city will be issuing a call to artists around mid-September, she said. Wilkinson added she’d like to see around 10 sculptures in the area with a focus on sports, the natural environment and community involvement.

Developers still waiting on bus open data to build app

SMS is available on both smart phones such as Blackberries and iPhones, as well as regular cell phones.


Transit users will have to wait a bit longer for real-time data in transit smart-phone “apps” (applications). That’s because OC Transpo still isn’t ready to publically release the data stream that is used to create the SMS updates. OC Transpo originally released that data this spring, but yanked the data stream, saying it needed refining. That put Jonathan Rudenberg’s Where’s My Bus? app out of commission. Rudenberg, a member of Open Data Ottawa, said he wished OC Transpo had released the data at the same time as the alert service, but he is encouraged by the steps OC Transpo has taken and the fact that the announcement made mention of open data. Alain Mercier, the transit authority’s general manager, said OC Transpo is in the process of integrating its systems so that all data is the same, no matter if it is providing SMS updates, the phone-in schedule or the information drivers have on the bus. “The issue with open data is that we had is that we’re not able to necessarily control all the information that’s being pushed out,” Mercier said. That is even true for OC Transpo’s integration with Google Transit, Mer-

and Air Conditioning

OC Transpo riders can now find out when their next bus will arrive by sending a text message. The transit authority launched the real-time service on Aug. 31. It uses GPS data from buses to let riders know when their bus is coming – not just when it is scheduled to arrive. To use the service, text 560560 and your stop number (listed on the sign at each bus stop). Riders can also sign up for personalized alerts at They can choose which routes they want to receive information about and whether they would like to be alerted to bus cancellations, detours and whether Transitway-station elevators are out of service. There is no additional charge for the service, but users should check what type of text-message service in included in their cell-phone plans to avoid additional phone charges. Andrew Milne, a developer who worked with OC Transpo to create the SMS service, said the city chose that format because it enables the largest number of transit users to take advantage of the service.


cier said. If Google doesn’t update the information at the same rate as OC Transpo, so customers see different information depending on which source they turn to. “So the customer gets a little confused as to what is the accurate data,” Mercier said. Mercier said OC Transpo wants to do everything it can behind the scenes to ensure that the data customers receive in any format is as up-to-date as possible. But Rudenberg said “that doesn’t really explain why they won’t release it today.” It’s not a technical issue keeping the transit authority from making the data public, Rudenberg said. All the city needs to do is draft a policy or terms of use for the information. Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who heads the city’s IT subcommittee, echoed Rudenberg’s concerns. Tierney wants the data to be open, and he will ask staff to explain why that isn’t possible yet. “In my mind, if we’re able to have this (SMS) service, we should be able to provide the raw data,” Tierney said. Mercier admitted OC Transpo will never be able to contract how people (including app developers) use the data. “We don’t have control over whether Google, or any other application, is working at the same speed as we are,” Mercier said. “And that is something that is the reality of the open-data world today.”

Beaver Pond event to honour Algonquin elder William Commanda JESSICA CUNHA

The Algonquin Union is hosting an event to celebrate the natural world at the Beaver Pond on Saturday, Sept. 10. The day-long occasion will also honour William Commanda, an Algonquin and spiritual elder, who passed away in August at the age of 97. “As I understand it, the pronouncements on the Beaver Pond were the last ones William made publicly,” said Mireille LaPointe, co-chief of the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation. “He has clearly pronounced himself on the sacredness of the whole area, and that includes the (South March) Highlands. He was very clear with what he said. “For us as Algonquin and indigenous people everywhere when an elder of the stature of William speaks, people pay attention and listen. And that’s what we’ve done, we’ve paid attention and we’ve listened.” LaPointe will act as master of ceremonies for the event, entitled South March Highlands: A Living Temple. The celebration is open to everyone, she said. “Indigenous people, all people everywhere, like to gather. They like to change and they like to enjoy each others presence,” said LaPonte. “I think this is an important gathering because William has taught us that we all fit on the medicine wheel. “By gathering like that and by sharing we honour each other’s knowledge and each other’s stories and each other’s life. It’s not just William being honoured, it’s all of us.” Commanda, who had a house in Kanata, was a driving force behind the attempt to save the South March Highlands and the Beaver Pond lands from development. He wrote letters to city councillors and the mayor, attended rallies and spoke to the people. “This event is for all (people who) really care about saving one of the last lands in the capital city that reflects a natural world,” Daniel Bernard “Amikwabe,” a member of the Algonquin Beaver Clan and friend of Commanda’s. “Really it’s a national heritage for all to preserve.” Commanda developed an international following through his work in racial harmony, peace building and developing respect for the earth. “He left a legacy for a much better world,” said Bernard. The day will include a sunrise ceremony and a sacred fire, teachings, workshops and trail walks, a photography contest, a traditional sweet corn roast fundraiser, games and activities for children, and a celebration of the full moon. “There will be lots of activities for kids because we believe that kids are very important,” said Bernard, adding there will be both indigenous and local games, face painting and story telling. “Kids need to be educated on taking care of the natural world.” Robert Lovelace, a professor at Queens University and an Ardoch Algonquin First Nation former chief, will give a workshop about the way indigenous people of Can-

It’s related also about how important it is for aboriginal people to protect the environment around us.” Artisans will be on site, showing off their crafts. Award-winning musicians The Andy Mason Band, Marc Meriläinen, David and Aurora Finkle, as well as traditional dancers and drummers will also be present. “It’s going to be unprecedented, nothing like this has ever been held,” said Bernard. “It’s an engaging time for all nations. This is an event we expect all nations to attend and enjoy. It’s going to be a day of rejoicing.” Special guest Danny Beaton, recipient of the National Aboriginal Achievement Award for Protecting Mother Earth, said the event will help to highlight the struggle of saving natural lands. “As a Mohawk I want to bring the concern and respect of my elders, chiefs and clan mothers to the gathering of the struggle to save the South Marsh Highlands and Mother Earth,” he said. “My elders, chiefs and clan mothers attended the United Nations gathering, Cry For The Earth, in 1990 with Grandfather William Commanda when they brought their message that Mother Earth was sacred and that she was being…destroyed. “My hope is to help educate Ottawa to listen to its indigenous and aboriginal people sharing their wisdom once more for survival and the protection of the South March Highlands.” Paul Renaud, spokesperson for the South March Highlands Carp River Conservation Corporation and a local environmentalist from Stittsville, said the event is a chance for people to learn more about the Beaver Pond lands. “It’s a tremendous opportunity to come out and learn some of the culture and customs and the unique relationship first nations have with the land,” he said. “It’s high time in the 21st century we recognize we’re part of the environment; we’re not

separate from it.” Also taking part in the event is the Kanata Lakes Community Association, the Sports4 Kanata Race Day committee, and the Circle of All Nations, a group founded by Commanda with a focus on sacred places. “Now this event becomes much more than a native, aboriginal thing, it becomes a circle of all nations if you will,” said Bernard. “This will be something people will never forget.” The event will be held at the Walden Drive entrance to the Beaver Pond from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information on the event and to see a list of activities, visit or

Bridlewood boy starts business to save for college Nine-year-old budding entrepreneur starts car detailing business JESSICA CUNHA

A nine-year-old budding entrepreneur has already begun saving towards his post secondary education. Bridlewood resident Ricky Davidson started his own car detailing business, Ricky’s Car Clean-Up, this summer following the urgings of a family friend. “My mom’s friend needed her car cleaned,” said Ricky, who’s going into Grade 4 at W.O. Mitchell Elementary School. He scrubbed the interior of her car, vacuumed and wiped down the

seats. “She liked it,” said Ricky, a four-year veteran of the Kanata Blazers hockey team. “She asked if I wanted to start a business, I said yes.” And so it began. Ricky detailed over 20 cars this summer and with his profits bought an iPod Touch and a new pair of sneakers. The rest of the money he’s made has been put in a bank account to save for college, and a new hockey stick, said Ricky. Running Ricky’s Car CleanUp has taught him the value of money, how to save and how to budget, he said. “It’s fun. If you don’t have anything to do you can make an appointment,” he said. “You get to see a whole bunch of nice vehicles, like a Mustang.” Ricky said he starts his cleaning process by vacuuming the interior with a wet-dry vac he was given by a client, washing the doors and the dash. He uses a sticky lint-roller to get rid of

No shortcuts. No escape key. Cool.

Ricky detailed Maureen Haynes’s vehicle after her daughter raved about his business. “I’m so amazed,” said Haynes. “He was working so hard.” She said many of her daughter’s friends have had their cars cleaned now as well. “He’s only nine, this kid’s going places,” said Haynes. “He’s polite and he’s sweet. It’s wonderful.” Ricky’s mother, Shelley, goes to every appointment to supervise. “I don’t have to help him,” she said. “I was so proud of him, he took right to it.” But it’s not all work and no play for Ricky. He takes Wednesday’s off and likes to schedule his cleanings for early mornings so he has the afternoon to have fun. On the weekends he and his family travel to their cottage where he details vehicles in the mornings and goes tubing on the water in the afternoons. “He’s a very busy boy,” said his mom. Ricky said he’ll continue his business until the end of the fall and start back up in the spring. He added he might look at detailing as a career option as he gets older but right now he’s enjoying the satisfaction of a job well done. His favourite part about detailing cars: “How they look when they’re done,” he said.

Jessica Cunha photo

This industry report shows clearly how the traditional ways of selling homes have become increasingly less and less effective in today’s market. The fact of the matter is that fully three quarters of homesellers don’t get what they want for their homes and become disillusioned and - worse - financially disadvantaged when they put their homes on the market.

Shanleigh Kirk, 10, drops a piece of trash into the garbage bag, held by Mayor Jim Watson, who was on hand to help kick of the fall Cleaning the Capital campaign with Kanata South Coun. Allen Hubley at the Eva James Memorial Community Centre on Thursday, Sept. 1.

City set to scrub the capital clean

The city kicked off its sixth annual fall Cleaning the Capital campaign at the Eva James Memorial Community Centre on Thursday, Sept. 1. Local Scouts Canada members and residents of Bridlewood were on hand to help pick up garbage around the complex. “Garbage pollutes water,” said 3rd Kanata Scout Garrett Kirk, 13. “(We do this) so there’s not garbage all over everywhere.” Garrett and his siblings helped to clean up the area around the Bridlewood Skate Park, picking up wrappers and plastic lids with garbage pickers. Part of the scouting program is to help take care of the environment, said Garrett’s mother Heather, a Scout leader. The Scouts have been helping to keep Deevy Pines Park clean for about five or six years, she said. Kanata councillors Allan Hubley, and Marianne Wilkinson, were on hand with Mayor Jim Watson to honour a number of community members for their continual help in keeping the area clean. Hubley honoured the neighbours of Deevy Pines Park and resident Steve Rahm for their continued efforts with the campaign with certificates of recognition. Rahm has been rallying and co-ordinating the Deevy Pines Park clean-up effort for the past three years with his neighbours and friends. Last spring, Rahm had about 50 participants for Cleaning the Capital and filled 30 garbage bags with trash. “This is a real honour,” he said. “We all take great pride in the public spaces we use on a daily basis here in Kanata.”

He and his wife, Sharon, walk their dog twice a day through the park lands, as do many other people living near the area. “We’ve sort of taken a sense of ownership,” said Rahm, adding many of the people who come out to clean also use the park for walking and recreation. Bridlewood Community Association president Margaret Kellaway said it helps having a community that cares about putting litter in its place. “I think we all have a lot of pride in our community,” she said. “I think it’s important that we demonstrate that.” Hubley was the winner of the ward award for having the most participants for the last Cleaning the Capital campaign. About 15 per cent of residents in Kanata South joined the cause to help keep the areas look spotless. “It’s very inspiring to see residents care this much about their community,” he said. Wilkinson was the winner for four years straight, from 2006 to 2010, and challenged Hubley to meet and beat her record. “My money’s on Hubley,” said a laughing Watson. Cleaning the Capital set a record in 2010 with the spring and fall campaigns having a combined total of just over 91,300 participants in 1,430 projects. More than 157,000 kilograms of litter was collected around the city last year. “We need the support of the thousands of volunteers who pick up the garbage and make our city green and clean,” said Watson. “We (the city) can’t do it on our own, we need the communities’ help.” To register for the fall Cleaning the Capital campaign or for more information, visit or call 311.

Provincial cash to help run two Ottawa-area MRIs In an effort to reduce wait times for diagnostic imaging, the province is pledging extra funds to the Queensway Carleton and Pembroke Regional hospitals for two new MRI machines. The Queensway Carleton has already budgeted $3 million for what will be their second MRI and started construction on the outer building that will house it. Pembroke Regional Hospital – which

serves a catchment of 100,000 people in Renfrew County – will be raising $4.5 million to cover the cost of the machine and renovations to the facility that would house it. The two hospitals will each receive $800,000 grants annually from the province to cover the cost of running the machines. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli called the announcement an important step forward in patient care. “Wait times for MRIs in the Champlain

LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) have decreased from 79 days in April 2008 to 44 days,” Chiarelli said, adding that it was thanks to the provincial health premium and reinvesting in health care. “The outcomes are real and measurable,” Chiarelli said. “The new MRI will expand services to residents of Nepean, Kanata and Barrhaven and result in even shorter wait times.” Dr. Wilbert Keon, chair of the board of directors for the Champlain LHIN, MRIs the greatest diagnostic imaging tool of all time. “Not only will these new machines reduce wait times for MRIs but it will also reduce the time the patient spends in the system because they will have a much more accurate diagnosis,” Keon said. Alex Munter, chief executive officer of the Champlain LHIN said the MRI at the Queensway Carleton could result in 5,600 more scans annually. “We had about 2,500 people travelling in to have scans done,” he said, adding that the new MRI at the Pembroke Hospital will free those scans up and the new machine could have a capacity for 3,100 scans. Pierre Noel, the president and CEO of the Pembroke Regional Hospital said an MRI was the most critically missing tool in the hospital and would improve their orthopedics care. “I am delighted, but I am here to thank the province on behalf of the 100,000 res-

The addition of the last two MRIs will boost the province’s number to a total of 11, according to Chiarelli.

Arm yourself against this silent killer.

Do you have gas appliances or water heaters? Is your home heated by a gas or oil furnace? Do you enjoy fires in a wood burning or gas fireplace? Is your garage or carport attached to your house? Have you ever run a gas generator inside your home?

“CO alarms provide the only form of early warning for carbon monoxide,” Heller warns. “Without these life-saving devices, undetected CO can result in early symptoms of headaches, nausea and fatigue which are often mistaken for the flu. Prolonged exposure leads to brain damage and death.

If you answered yes to any one of these, you need to learn the facts about carbon monoxide—and you need to install a CO alarm. Often called the ‘silent killer’, carbon monoxide is odourless, tasteless and invisible. If not vented properly, or if appliances or heating devices malfunction, CO can cause sickness, debilitating physical and mental issues and, ultimately, death. Despite ongoing warnings from safety officials, thousands of Canadians are exposed to carbon monoxide each year and some die. The only way humans can detect deadly CO is with a CSA-approved carbon monoxide alarm.

Since many of us have gas water heaters, stoves, fireplaces or attached garages, CO is truly a fourseason danger. But the onset of autumn brings increased potential exposure to CO as heating systems are turned on, fireplaces are sparked and cars warmed up.

“Most CO alarms cost in the range of $30, just about 2 cents a day over their lifespan, a nominal price to pay for the safety of yourself and your family,” Heller adds.

• 59 per cent of Canadians do not have a CO alarm. • 44 per cent do not have heating systems checked annually. • 18 per cent believe CO alarms are only required if you have a gas furnace.

She offers these home safety tips: • Have a licensed inspector check heating systems and other fuel-burning appliances, including furnaces and fireplaces, annually. • Install one-CSA approved CO alarm on each level of your home and outside sleeping areas. • Keep clear all exhaust flues and ducts including those used by water heaters, ranges and fireplaces. • Test all CO alarms monthly and replace them every 5-7 years. • Change the batteries at least once a year.

With the multitude of devices in a home that emit carbon monoxide, she urges Canadians to take steps now to avoid tragedy down the road.

The Capital City Storm’s senior team is planning on competing in the COA Ultimate National Championship in Orlando, Fla., next April. The team had a perfect 2010-11 season with five first-place wins.

✓ Chronic Migraines? ✓ Chronic Neck Pain? ✓ Low Energy?

A local cheerleading team is planning on heading to Orlando, Fla., for an international competition next April. The Capital City Storm’s senior team is raising funds to send its team south of the border for the COA Ultimate National Championship, set for April 5 to 8, 2012. “It should be fun,� said Danielle Morrison, who’s been on the cheer team for five years. Capital City Storm is hosting a community garage sale in Stittsville, at the athletic facility located at 119 Iber Rd., on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 8 a.m. to noon. The team will also host a bottle drive in Stittsville and Kanata on Sunday, Sept. 11. Members will be canvassing in their areas or the public can drop off bottles on Sept. 10 during the garage sale. PERFECT SEASON The Storm’s senior team had

a perfect season during the 201011 run with five first-place wins. The senior team took home the gold at: • The Big East Blast in Kingston, Ont., in February. • The East Regional Competition in Gatineau, Que., in February. • The Ontario Championships in Kitchener, Ont., in March. • The COA Niagara Falls Nationals in Buffalo, NY in April. • The Canadian National Championships in Niagara Falls, Ont., in May. “They had a very good year,â€? said Danielle’s mother Rosemary. Fifteen-year-old Danielle said the national competition was her favourite to win since it was the biggest out of the five contests. The Storm went up against around six teams, she said, and walked away with the top spot. “It’s a good team sport and it involves lots of different things like gymnastics and dance,â€? she said, adding her favourite part about competing is “just having everyone cheer you on while you’re performing.â€?

The Kanata Knights Tyke football team posted an impressive shutout in a 6-0 victory over the West Carleton Wolverines at Bob Barr field in Kanata. Leading the defensive charge were Gerome “The Missile” Choeung-Boateng with eight tackles and 1 blocked pass, Jared Valentino with six tackles and one interception, and the Ferdinand power twins, Kaseem with seven tackles and Denny with seven tackles, a fumble recovery, and a punishing quarterback sack late in the game. Matt Belanger also managed to recover the ball on a kick-off. Offensively, the poised and quick-thinking quarterback Peter Johnson scored the game’s only touchdown on a nifty quarterback sneak play, and also made several great scrambles to record positive yardage including two first downs. Running backs Josh Lapensee and Tyler Hendrycks battled hard through the talented Wolverines, combining to post a total of 60 yards rushing. The offensive line was solid in holding back the blitz and opening up key running lanes. With this being the first football game for many young players, it was an overall great team effort and something to build upon for future games. MOSQUITO Game 1 - Kanata Knights 49 West Carleton Wolverines 40 The historic Thrilla in Manilla has nothing over the rumble at the KRC jungle on Labour Day, Monday, Sept. 5, which displayed heavyweight hits by both teams. Though this epic battle went back and forth, mano-a-mano, the Kanata Knights were declared the champions as they eventually knocked out the

West Carleton Wolverines in the fourth quarter and won 49-40. The Knights were led by the rope-a-dope scrambling technique of quarterback Tyler Rehman who threw for over 200 yards and four touchdown passes, including a 50-yard pass to Connor Ogilvie who caught it in mid-air right through the teeth of the Wolverines defence. Patrick Massia grabbed two long touchdown passes, while Antonio Albery snagged a 20yard touchdown reception. Nevan Carter showed his raw power and quick jabs with a spectacular running game of 260 yards and two touchdowns. The Kanata defence was up against a goliath of an opponent that at times looked like they could score at will. But Bryce Marshall came to play and recovered an onside kick, got three solo tackles and made a game saving tackle on the six foot Wolverine wide receiver. The one-two punch of Gavin Goyette and Scott Robinson mixed it up from the right and left sides which resulted in three fumble recoveries for Kanata. The menacing body blows from defensive line players Kane Obas, Sebastian Vienneau, Jarod Wakeman and Jay Vitagiliano resulted in a combined 28 tackles. BANTAM Bantams kicked off the season with their first game this past weekend and showed they are on top of their offensive game winning 38 to 0 over West Carleton. The team rushed for 281 yards with Brad Hills leading the pack with 123 yards. Touchdowns were scored by Jason Lachance and Brad Hills with two each and Nick Kzaniak and Keenan Tanti contributing one each. The defense were swarming the Wolverine’s all day long. They logged 23 solo tackles with Joey Belanger leading the pack with six. Julien Smit and John Allarie both logged sacks and Seby Mordak pulled off an interception with a 40 yard return. The team is looking forward to the next game, against the East Ottawa Generals on Sept. 11.

Kanata Kourier-Standard - SEPTEMBER 08, 2011


Friends get their pink on to fight cancer SPECIAL TO THE KOURIER-STANDARD Friendship and the quest to raise funds for cancer research has resulted in three Ottawa women to create Get Your Pink On, a fundraiser the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. “Get Your Pink On is an evening event at a local pub in which we raise money for breast cancer,” said Patricia Allan, one of the event organizers. “Breast

cancer affects the lives of everyone in some form or another. This event helps to raise money for the ongoing push to find a cure.” Breast cancer has touched Allan’s life when her good friend, Jamie Johnston, was diagnosed with the disease in 2009. As a result of her battle, Johnston, a mother of two young children, created the Breast Dress Project, a project involving collecting gently used dresses from brides whose weddings have come and gone. The dresses are sold 494971 to future brides-to-be. All profits from the sale of the dresses are directed to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. As part of the project, Johnston has enrolled a team in the Foundation’s Run for the Cure, its annual fundraiser. As a team member, Allan wanted to help the group reach and surpass its fundraising goal. “I wanted to find a way to raise funds for Breast Cancer while having a great time with

friends. I came up with the idea of doing a fundraising event in a local pub where my husband and I enjoyed going for a night out,” Allan said. “Through the Breast Dress Project team, I asked for help in organizing and creating this idea. That’s when Cindy Smith and Jen Warren came aboard and together we created Get Your Pink On.” Along with organizing, the three women have been busy getting the word out about the event as well as raising donations. Now in its second year, Get Your Pink On will take place on Friday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. At Grace O’Malley’s at 1531 Merivale Rd., Nepean. The event raised more than $4,000 last year, surpassing the organizer’s modest goal of $1,500. “I was very surprised by the response,” admits Allan. “Due to the size of our team, along with word of mouth advertising, I was expecting a lot of people. However, I didn’t expect that we would have raised as much as we did.” This year’s fundraising goal has been set at $5,000. Along with live music by Nectar, people make bids during the si-

There will also grab bags for the first 50 guests. “People can expect an evening of fun and excitement with lots of pink,” said Allan when describing Get Your Pink On. The entire Ottawa community has gotten behind this event. “We’ve had donations from realtors, spas, insurance companies, local children’s businesses, hotels, restaurants and small entrepreneurs,” she explains. “Last year’s venue waived all fees for this event as did the band Arizona Sand, which helped to make it so successful. This year Grace O’Malley’s is on board and is excited to help create another successful year.” Tickets for Get Your Pink On can be purchased through sending an email to or at the Breast Dress Project located in Groovy Linen, 19 Grenfell Cres., unit 12.

with loads of opportunity for debate and discussion. The style of alpha is informal, friendly and non-pressured - a style which seems to be appreciated in Canadian culture. Each week people meet together for a meal, a video talk on topics such as Who is Jesus?; Why did Jesus die?; How can I be sure of my faith?; and does God still heal today?; followed by small group interaction. Church leaders from all denominations report the astonishing impact the course has on non-churchgoers and existing Christians in their areas. And it’s spreading fast to many secular locations - prisons, university campuses, businesses and schools. Alpha courses are now running in more than 130 countries and the course materials have been translated into a number of languages.

With a provincial election fast approaching, energy has already become a hot topic of interest and debate. To fuel the debate, the Kanata Environmental Network (KEN) is screening a film titled Powerful: Energy for Everyone on Sept. 14, starting at 7 p.m. The 52-minute film delves into Ontario’s existing energy system, which drives our transportation system, powers our communication system, heats our buildings, and runs our businesses. This energy system, so vital to modern society, consumes finite resources, affects Earth’s

climate, and pollutes our land, water, and air. The film is an inspirational search for solutions, starting with the film-maker’s home in Ottawa where he installed solar panels over his front porch. The search for solutions travels further-a-field to other places in Ontario and then to Denmark, Germany and France. The film details illuminating examples of energy conservation and production, including the Feedin-Tariff model used to promote green sources of energy. The film drives home the point that real solutions are at hand, and that we can learn from the examples set by others. “Powerful” is produced and filmed by David Chernushenko,

a local film maker, an environmental educator, and an Ottawa city councilor. He will be leading a discussion after the film. In addition, KEN has invited the local provincial candidates, so that they can share their perspectives on this crucial topic. A new Kanata Green Energy Team has started to promote green energy projects and jobs here in Kanata. If you would like to join the team, contact:, or join us on Sept.14. The film will be shown in the Beaverbrook Community Centre, 2 Beaverbrook Rd., on Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. Admission is free, but a donation will be gratefully accepted.
