A 20-year-old Beaverbrook man is seeking a formal apology from an OC Transpo bus driver who allegedly unleashed a stream of verbal abuse at him during a bus ride on Thursday, Nov. 3. The incident was filmed by another passenger using his iPhone camera and posted on YouTube. Alain Mercier, the head of OC Transpo wrote a letter to the city’s transit committee apologizing for the incident and promising a thorough investigation. The passenger, Matthew Taronno, a scriptwriting student at Algonquin College, said he is willing to admit he may have offended the driver by reading aloud from a script he had written – that had no foul language but discussed public nudity – during the bus ride. “I want to make an apology too,” said Taronno. “I want a formal apology between the both of us so things can be all right.” Taronno said the incident started at around 2 a.m. early Thursday morning, when he boarded a Route 96 bus at Lincoln Fields Station, returning home after spending the night studying at Algonquin College. The Beaverbrook man said he was memorizing and reading lines of a play he had written that may have offended the bus driver. The play, “Miami Bitch”, contains content about “humans running around naked. BUS DRIVER, see 4

A Morgan’s Grant man got a Tweet surprise when he was chosen by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as one of 150 Twitter followers to cover the launch of a Mars rover. Andrew Symes was selected to attend the two-day “Tweetup” on Nov. 23 and 25 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center for the launch of the Mars rover Curiosity from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. “We’re getting the best view of a rocket launch that’s possible,” said Symes, who will be at the press site for the event. “Having the opportunity to see that will be amazing. “Seeing a spacecraft launch is something I’ve always wanted to see.” He will have the chance to talk to some of the mission scientists and engineers, ask questions, tour the Kennedy Space Center and Tweet about his experiences. “We can Tweet during some of these talks and before the launch,” said Symes, who will send messages via Twitter from a laptop and Smartphone. “Just seeing all that up close is just a dream come true.” The 32-year-old has been a fan of space exploration since he was a teenager.

It had content talking about running around in the nude,” said Taronno, adding that there was no foul language in the play. “It was inappropriate,” said Taronno. “And I accept that it was inappropriate. I want to make it clear that I apologize for what I had done and I regret what I did.” Taronno, who was seated near the middle of the bus, said during the ride he stumbled and accidently bumped into a button requesting a stop. Taronno said he went to the front of the bus to ask the driver to let him off at the intersection of Eagleson Road and the Highway 417 interchange. “Then he started to freak out,” said Taronno. “That’s when it all started.” Taronno said he tried to apologize for bumping into the request a stop button. “I was trying to get that out, but he just cut me off,” said Taronno. “The thing that ticked him off was accidently pressing the button.” At some point, the only other passenger on the bus took out his cellphone and filmed the incident. The 55-second cellphone video shows Taronno standing near the driver and the voice of another man yelling at him. “Shut the f..k up!” a man’s voice said. “Shut your ignorant f…ing cake-hole! Don’t say another f…ing word.” The man then threatened Taronno. “If you don’t shut your f…ing face I’m going to stick my fist in it!” YOUTUBE POSTER

The man who posted the YouTube video writes in the video’s description that he was travelling on the bus on Thursday night listening to music. “I heard a voice behind me that was rather loud,” said the man. “I paused my music and overheard this young man saying that he ‘sleeps on the ground, run(s) around with no clothes on, tries to be as spontaneous as possible, that he hates pregnancy and loves nudity.’” The YouTube poster said Taronno continued to talk loudly as if the phone in his hand was a microphone and “he was the host on a game show of sorts.” The YouTube poster said he watched Taronno walk to the front of the bus and try to speak with the bus driver. “This quickly enraged the bus driver

and he started to yell at (Taronno),” he said. “After trying to apologize and state many times, ‘I’m sorry, I have a mental illness,’ the young man was subjected to verbal abuse from the bus driver.” The YouTube video identifies Taronno as being “mentally ill”. Taronno said he is “mildly, mildly autistic”. DISCIPLINE Taronno said he thinks the driver should be fired for his behaviour. “I would support that he would lose his job because it was unacceptable.” Following the incident, Alain Mercier, head of OC Transpo, wrote an email to the city’s transit commission. “Firstly our apologies to the customer and to all customers on the bus,” he wrote. “Our entire team of employees do not believe in this type of behaviour. But the reality is that the incident appears genuine. The investigation will be given the utmost attention given the seriousness of the case.” Mercier said several programs were launched in 2008 to improve customer service at OC Transpo, such as: • Reducing the ratio between employees and supervisors from 400 to 1 to 150 to 1. • Training for drivers dealing with difficult customer situations and how to recognize and deal compassionately with people who have disabilities. • A Silent Shoppers program to identify needs for training. • A performance interview every 18 months with bus drivers. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said the city won’t reveal any disciplinary action taken against the driver. “We’re very sorry this happened,” said Wilkinson, “because it’s not the way operators are supposed to act. “There a lot of very good bus drivers out there,” she said. “When one bus driver goes off this way it hurts the bus drivers who are doing a good job.” The Kourier-Standard called Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279, but no calls were returned for immediate comment. Taronno said he will continue to take the bus to school. “(With) drivers – it’s like winning the lottery if you run into the same one twice.”

Katimavik resident Tom Flood was honoured for his work effecting positive change within the funeral service business with the Ontario Funeral Service Association’s Association Employee Activist Award.

Funeral association honours Tom Flood JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Long-time resident and community figure Tom Flood was awarded for his work in effecting positive changes within the funeral service business. The senior vice-president and managing director of the Hulse, Playfair & McGarry Funeral Homes was honoured with the Ontario Funeral Service Association (OFSA) Association Employee Activist Award. The award, which is sitting on a desk in his office on Woodroffe Avenue, has an inspiring inscription, a quote by philosopher William James: “Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” And Flood has made quite a difference, according to current OFSA president Ernie Morgan. “A caring, ethical, professional funeral director who constantly strives to meet the highest standard in the interests of the family and public he serves, Tom’s unique leadership capabilities and compassion are invaluable,” said Morgan. The activist award is presented to someone who has helped to bring about positive change within the funeral profession and enhanced the quality of service provided to families. “I was really quite surprised and humbled and privileged,” said Flood, who’s worked in funeral services for 32 years. “It’s always humbling to be nominated by your peers.”

CORRECTION The Kourier-Standard reported last week that the Kanata South Accommodation Review Committee had already decided to move ahead with the option of having all Grade 9 students who live south of Hwy. 417 attend A.Y. Jackson Secondary School. In fact, the committee has not decided to move ahead with any of the four options under consideration. We regret the error.

Flood, a past president and vice president of OFSA, helped to develop a number of programs within the organization, including the vision and mission statements, the mandate for independent and family owned businesses, OFSA’s media campaign, legislative committee and the loss grief and growth program, said Morgan. Flood, a Katimavik resident, also implemented travelling meetings around the province in an effort to include all workers in educational and networking opportunities. “Tom will be a proud addition to the distinguished list of Association Employee Award recipients,” said Morgan. “I felt like I was on an All Star team,” said Flood, a former goalie, about the past winners of the award. “It’s not the Stanley Cup but it’s close to it.” Flood first became involved in funeral services when a friend of his got him a job working in a funeral home. The oldest of seven kids, Flood’s mother was a nurse and three of his sisters followed into the health profession. He said he always wanted to be able to help people. “People need help when they have a death in their family and I appreciate being able to help,” he said. Eligible for retirement, Flood said he doesn’t have plans to give up his job any time soon. “Maybe I’ll be a part of Freedom 70,” he said with a laugh.

CORRECTION Re: Commuter rail line one step closer, Nov. 3, Kourier-Standard. The story identified Walkley Road as being in Nepean. It is not, but the ownership of the Beachburg Subdivision rail line ends in Nepean.

The real war has just begun

O

n Remembrance Day, we honour the fallen soldiers who lie in Flanders Fields and near battlefields around the globe. We thank those veterans whose presence at the National War Memorial in Ottawa and at cenotaphs throughout the country reminds us of the sacrifices that make our freedom possible. Gathered near Parliament Hill, amid the pipes and parades, it’s easy to overlook the memorial itself. But take a good look at the bronze figures walking through the soaring granite arch. Guided by the winged figures of Peace and Freedom, they leave the guns of war behind and wearily make their way to what they hope will be a peaceful future, free of the hell from which they came. Now look even closer, at their faces. Are these the same boys and girls who left their farms and towns as fresh-faced teens to take on the world? No. They seem to have aged decades in just a few years. The sculptor has captured their utter fatigue, their hollow eyes and spent spirits. And even this powerful rendering is a sympathetic portrayal of the true cost of war.

As Canadians celebrate veterans and honour their service, we would do well to remember those faces. The soldiers now returning from Afghanistan might not be so dramatically changed in appearance, but inside, many have aged decades in just a few months. Many more do not carry in their hearts the peace and hope for the future the monument symbolizes. It is well and good to rename highways and make speeches. But society – and government in particular – must be willing to get into the trenches and deal with the less public, much thornier issues of mental health, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and reintegration to “normal” society for veterans who left as innocents and return broken in body and spirit. The government must match its grand rhetoric with funding to rehabilitate wounded soldiers and educate those who don’t yet understand the demons they grapple with. But Veterans Affairs programs are being cut, and the opposition’s investigation into those cuts has been stifled by government MPs. Adding the dates of the Afghan mission to the war memorial will hardly signal its end. Our soldiers have

Our self-serving bureaucracies

S

omewhere along the way, large organizations begin putting their own interests ahead of the people they serve. It happens everywhere – in private companies, in government, even in the non-profit sector. It’s why everything takes so long and nobody answers the phone. You see it all the time, although you don’t always recognize it. Organizations begin to do things for their own convenience, rather than the convenience of the public. It is most dramatic in government, because government’s only function is to serve the public. The recent kerfuffle over public spaces at Library and Archives Canada is a classic example. For years, several ground floor rooms and a medium-sized auditorium have been rented out to community groups, large and small, at a modest cost. The Library even renovated its auditorium in 1994, to improve its acoustics and make it more comfortable, an apparent sign of continuing commitment to public programs. Then the Library’s own public programming, including some outstanding musical and literary events, virtually disappeared, presumably for the usual budgetary reasons. Nevertheless, LAC continued to make its rooms available to community groups. A recent news story

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town says that 350 events hosted by 45 different groups will have been held at the Library by years’ end. That could change, if the government does not react to public pressure. LAC announced recently that Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) would take control of the ground floor bookings starting in January. According to the announcement, the government would charge community groups market rental rates (translation: higher) and demand that groups wanting to use the auditorium and meeting rooms get permission from Public Works Minister Rona Ambrose. Some vague security concerns were cited, along with a suggestion that the government might need those rooms for itself because of a shortage of meeting spaces in the capital. Both arguments were greeted with skepticism by the affected groups – the government needs

more meeting spaces? Why not go to Bridgehead? Or, better yet, hold fewer meetings. The government has begun backtracking and the final outcome of this particular struggle will take a while. Meanwhile it is useful to consider the words of a spokesperson for LAC, a contender for bureaucratic confusobabble of the year: “LAC is not a department that is specialized in property management, so it was logical that it be transferred to PWGSC, the department that has both the responsibility and expertise in this area, of which LAC has always been a tenant.” Roughly translated, what this means is that the public was becoming an inconvenience – you know, coming through the door, going into the rooms, sitting on the chairs. Serving the public took a certain amount of effort and it would be much easier if the government just served itself. Serving themselves is what more and more large organizations are doing, both in government and in business. When you go into a big store and can’t find any staff, do you think that was done with you in mind? Do you think someone wanted to serve you better when they replaced human attendants in parking garages with machines?

It certainly didn’t serve the economy better, at a time of high unemployment. Which brings up another question: Do you think it’s to serve you that big corporations continue to lay off staff while governments speak of the need to create jobs? Is it for you that the voice mail maze has replaced human receptionists? Is it for you that airlines now charge for checked baggage? Is it for you that computers telephone you at home? Do you think gas stations switched to self-serve for you? And is it really for your convenience, despite what the sign says, that you are being videotaped in stores? The public has reacted quite strongly to the Library and Archives changes. But there’s lots more work to be done, although we might be videotaped doing it.

“It was 1994 when there was a comet that impacted Jupiter; for whatever reason that really interested me,” said Symes, who describes himself as an amateur astronomer and enjoys taking photos of the night sky. “It just sort of blew my mind that average people with a telescope could see these things happen.” NASA has held Tweetups for a number of launches since 2009, allowing people from the general public with an interest in space to witness the events up close. “Missions like this…they put out a call for ‘Tweetup attendees’ as they call them,” said Symes, one of three Canadians chosen for the current Tweetup. “They usually get thousands of

applications.” Those chosen have to be on Twitter and a follower of one of the many NASA Twitter accounts. “This is outreach for NASA,” said Symes. “It builds awareness of what NASA is doing.” The Curiosity rover is expected to reach Mars by August 2012. The two-year mission will include an investigation on an area of the planet to see if microbial life could have once existed. Curiosity has its own Twitter account at @MarsCuriosity.

City Budget

Staff outnumber residents at budget meeting JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

A plan to add self-serve kiosks at Ottawa Public Library branches this year was put on hold due to budget constraints and a desire to use new technology coming down the pipe .

Library kiosk program on hold LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

The city was planning to expand a pilot program of serve-serve library check outs, but that’s off the books for 2012. Instead, the Ottawa Public Library will focus on continuing to add radio frequency identification tags on its books and other materials. Owing to a direction from city council, all departments must keep proposed tax increases under 2.5 per cent, so the selfserve kiosks were put on hold because there wasn’t enough money to go around. A report indicates the city has to account for a revenue shortfall and the standard increases in salaries and costs due to inflation. The pilot project at the Hunt Club-Riverside Community Centre has been successful, but it makes sense to put the kiosk program on hold because there is new technology being developed, said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, chairwoman of the library board. If the city waits, there could be better, perhaps even cheaper technology available soon. Using radio frequency identification tracking is a bigger priority for the library because it’s becoming standard practice in all libraries as a way to better track materials and to handle more borrowing efficiently. A radio frequency identification chip is like a bar code, except it doesn’t have to be individually scanned with a laser. Instead the tags send of a frequency that is picked up by equipment in the library, so it’s easier to keep track of what’s in stock at the branch. The city is set to spend $1.08 million on the radio frequency identification project in 2012, and another $250,000 each subsequent year until 2015. The library expects it will cost an addi-

tional $1.74 million to run its services in 2012 – a 4.4 per cent increase. Part of the pressure comes from a program that sends borrowers emails to remind them to return their books. That has made people more diligent about returns, meaning the library makes less money from late fines. But the library is on track to introduce online fine payments in late 2011/early 2012, which the city expects will increase the amount of money it actually collects for fines. Another issue is the lack of upper-level government contributions in 2011. While the city received $5.42 million to build in the Greely library and renovate other branches (Alta Vista, Vanier, Cumberland, Sunnyside, Ruth E. Dickinson and Vernon) in 2010, no funding came through in 2011, “creating a need” to try to find similar grants in 2012, the report states. Some of the projects the library expects to spend money on this year include: upgrades to bring the main branch elevator up to code, replacement of the shingles at the Rockcliffe branch, repairs to windows at the Rideau Street branch and fixes to the Sunnyside branch parking lot. There is also money to renovate the aging Hazeldean branch and to expand the Beaverbrook branch so it can serve more people. The library board accepted the draft budget on Oct. 26 and it will debate it on Nov. 14. City council is scheduled to vote on the budget on Nov. 30. Ottawa’s network of libraries served 33.6 million people who borrowed 10.5 million items in 2010. It’s ranked as the top city service for client satisfaction. In terms of the provincial picture, the Ottawa Public Library moves 11.7 items per capita (per 100,000 people) – a high number. But the service manages to keep costs below the provincial average of $1.64 per capita.

Residents in western Ottawa don’t seem to have a problem with how their tax dollars are being spent by city council judging by the turnout at the draft budget meeting in Kanata on Wednesday, Nov. 2. Less than 10 people showed up to the draft budget consultation at Holy Trinity Catholic High School, not including city councillors, city staff and media. Mayor Jim Watson credited the low attendance to the lack of surprises in the 2012 budget, saying residents expected a tax hike of 2.5 per cent or less, and that’s what they got. “It took the theatrics out of it,” said Watson. He added previous councils would use a “slash and burn” approach when dealing with the budget, which would cause people to come out in droves to public meetings to voice their concerns. “We’re not flying from the seat of our pants,” he said about the new council. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley attributed the lack of public involvement to the fact that the budget offers “something for everyone.” ON THE MOVE Western Ottawa is seeing its share of tax dollars to fix roads, sidewalks and intersections through the Ottawa on the Move initiative. “It’s not always the sexiest thing to spend money on,” said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor. “But it’s the skeleton, the backbone.” Although the initiative to fix aging infrastructure for driving, transit, walking and cycling will cause the city new debt, it will save council around $12-million in the long run because of low interest rates, said the mayor. “In this case we’re starting to pay up now so we don’t have to pay later,” added Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri. The city wants to ensure transportation can run at capacity during the construction of the light rail transit system, said Marian Simulik, city treasurer. “We’re advancing a number of works that would have taken place anyway.” West Carleton Coun. Eli El-Chantiry made sure he took the mayor on the roughest roads when they toured through his ward this past year. “My kidneys are still suffering from my trip to Fitzroy,” said Watson. “We are happy to be where we are,” said El-Chantiry about the improvements to rural roads in the budget. The city’s transit system will also be getting a boost in the west end. With a new park and ride scheduled for Scotiabank Place in January, the extra 100 parking spots should help alleviate congestion at other locations, said Qadri. He said more Route 96 buses will also be going through Stittsville every 15 minutes, which should also help with overcrowding on buses. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkin-

son said council is “actively looking” at lands for four new park and ride locations around the west end. Taylor said city staff are looking at where the station should be located for the west transitway extension, which is set to run from Bayshore Station to Moodie Drive. “We’re undertaking that study phase right now,” he said. Ottawa on the Move is a multi-year project, said Watson, so construction may not begin right away in certain areas. “You may not see construction start in 2012,” he said, adding most works should be underway by 2013. Q&A Six residents got up to ask the panel of city councillors, the mayor and city staff questions and offer suggestions regarding the budget. All but one offered their congratulations to council for the work they’ve accomplished. Meghann Darroch, of the Westcliffe Estates Community Association, said the sidewalks along Robertson Road in Bells Corners desperately need to be repaved, something not currently in the 2012 budget. “The sidewalks on Robertson are not safe for those in wheelchairs,” she said. A member of the community association looked over the budget to see where money could be saved to fix the sidewalks. Darroch said if council scraped the addition of an additional left turn lane at Robertson and Moodie Drive, which has been allotted $1 million, the money could repair the aging sidewalks. She added she’s heard of people in wheelchairs who have to use the road at certain points along Robertson because the sidewalks are unusable. “(There are) concerns around safety,” she said. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the dual left-turning lanes are necessary, since government workers will be using the intersection once the former Nortel building on Moodie is outfitted for the Department of National Defence. “The turn lanes…are necessary if we’re going to keep traffic flowing,” he said. “I don’t think we’d want to get rid of that.” He added he would look over the budget and see if there was a way to include the sidewalks. Cathy Jordan, executive director of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, asked the panel how they planned to serve the city’s most vulnerable citizens in the years ahead. The mayor pointed to the senior’s summit recently held last month, as well as free OC Transpo rides on designated dates for seniors. Hubley said the Kanata Seniors Council, along with himself and Wilkinson, will be on hand for a Western Ottawa Seniors Summit on Friday, Nov. 25, for those who were unable to register for the mayor’s summit.

A summer vacation turned into an eye opening experience for a Stittsville family this past summer. The Lessard family, who live in Granite Ridge, travelled to Tembisa, a township of Johannesburg, South Africa this past summer. For two weeks the family volunteered at Nokuphila School, a pre-school built by Christ Church and Love Trust for vulnerable and disadvantaged children. “Those kids are so happy, they’re always happy – it’s amazing,” said Penny Lessard, who grew up in South Africa and immigrated to Canada with

her parents when she was 10 years old. “You hear the stories about some of their lives and you can’t believe they come from an area with no running water, no electricity. “Some of the kids are infected with HIV and some of their parents have passed away; the grandparents are looking after the kids.” Penny, her husband Harold, and their two daughters, Gabrielle, 13, and Alexa, 11, brought donated musical instruments with them and taught the children how to play songs like “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”, “London Bridge” and “When The Saints Go Marching In”. “We did music lessons with them … We showed them what the instruments were like,” said Penny, who brought over cymbals, tambourines, little drums and shakers donated by

Cheryl McDonald of Kanata-based Music for Young Children. “They were just so excited to see the instruments, so were all the teachers.” The family also held sports days, teaching the students how to play volleyball and badminton. “We organized sports days,” said Penny, “just stuff that they’ve never experienced. So that was a lot of fun.” The pre-school currently serves around 80 students between the ages of three and six, with plans to start a Grade 1 class in January when the new school year starts. Penny, who taught in the resource department of Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Kanata, said when her family made plans to see where she grew up, she wanted to turn the trip into a learning experience. “I really wanted a school setting. I thought being a teacher that was something natural to me,” she said. “It was good for my kids too because they got to see these children and see how happy these kids are even though they have nothing. I think that they realized how lucky they are. They got a good sense of ‘Wow this is not what we’re used to.’ It was an eye-opening experience for sure.” Since returning home, the family has set up a Skype account with the students at Nokuphila and they write to each other. “We’ll definitely be keeping in touch with the school because it was such a wonderful experience,” said Penny. “The teachers, the children were so good with us. “It was one of those life-time experiences.”

R0011141872

The view from the Aberdeen Pavilion is normally one of the expansive paved parking area of Lansdowne Park, along with the nearby Civic Centre. But for two days last week, the view from the Aberdeen Pavilion was one of the future, at least for the over 7,500 Ottawa Grade 8 students who visited there for a career forum. Whether it was the WRK4U2 – Work for You Too/World of Work Forum for Ottawa Catholic School Board students on Tuesday, Oct. 25 or the World of Work 2011 Forum for Ottawa-Carleton District School Board students on Wednesday, Oct. 26, Grade 8 students were given a view of their future as they were exposed to possible career pathways, options and opportunities thanks to a wide variety of exhibits and displays. Grade 8 students from Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville attended on Tuesday, Oct. 25 while Grade 8 students from A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School and Goulbourn Middle School in Stittsville attended on Wednesday, Oct. 26. This annual career forum is meant to give Grade 8 students a view of the many avenues and careers which they can pursue as they continue their education in high school. Exhibits and booths at the career forum included community and business organizations and post secondary education providers. There were also displays of the specialist high skills major programs offered in public high schools as well as Catholic board student displays of their work and school displays featuring the Board’s focus programs such as building construction, guitar studies and emergency services. Specialist high skills major programs include transportation, health and wellness and information and communication technology.

Retired Sgt. Eleanor ‘Jerry’ Cowburn served three years with the Canadian Women’s Army Core during the Second World War.

Yo u r f a m i l y R e a l E s t a t e P r o f e s s i o n a l s . . .

Retired Sgt. Eleanor “Jerry” Cowburn remembers what it was like during the Second World War. At 18 years of age in Dec. 1942, she enlisted into the Canadian Women’s Army Core, a non-combat branch that helped expand the country’s war effort. “My girlfriend and I, we joined the military without our parents’ knowledge,” said Cowburn, now 87 and living in a one-bedroom suite at the Kanata Place Revera retirement residence in Glen Cairn. “(My father) didn’t like it at all but it was too late…I’d been sworn in and signed up.” An active member of the Westboro Legion, Cowburn completed basic training in Kitchener, Ont., with a focus on marching, discipline and first aid. She earned her nickname Jerry during a lifesaving course. In the course of her three years of service, Cowburn was drafted to go overseas three times but her father, a prominent police chief, blocked her, she said. Instead she travelled the province giving rousing speeches aimed at enlisting men into the military and providing musical entertainment for the officers, singing such songs as “Autumn Leaves” and “No Man is an Island.” “My brother was in the Air Force and

I had friends in the military,” said Cowburn, who’s sung in many musicals and choirs. “I wanted to do my duty for Canada.” Cowburn, a 58-year-member of the Royal Canadian Legion, also remembers the day the War came to an end. “Everybody was celebrating on the streets,” said Cowburn. “My parents were glad that I was home, that my brother was home. “A lot of my friends did come home; a few of them were killed.” Remembrance Day is an emotional day for Cowburn, a time when she remembers those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty or who have passed on since retiring from active service. She said it’s important that everyone take a moment to stop and remember the sacrifices of those who have fought, and those who are fighting, on Remembrance Day. “(It’s important), to help the boys that were killed overseas and remember them and their families and support the ones that are still living,” she said. Canada lost its last known First World War veteran last year. John Babcock died at the age of 109. Cowburn said the list of surviving Second World War veterans is also getting smaller every year. “Support the ones that are sill living,” she said. “I know there’s not many of them but I want to make sure they’re looked after.” Cowburn is twice widowed, a mother of two daughters, and step-mother of four sons.

After 14 years distributing poppies to thousands of children in Kanata schools, John Gooch is ready to hang up his poppy bin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will most likely be my last year,â&#x20AC;? said the 86-year-old veteran of the Second World War. Gooch, the ceremonial chairperson of the Kanata Legion (Cenotaph), started the school poppy distribution project in 1998, the same year he spearheaded a campaign to build the Kanata Cenotaph at Village Green Memorial Park in Colchester Square. Last summer, Gooch was presented with the Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Builder Award by Mayor Jim Watson, recognizing his tireless work on behalf of veterans and community organizations over several decades. Goochâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list of honours includes the Kanata Volunteer Award, the 1998 Mentor Award from the former city of Kanata and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Royal Canadian Legion. In 2006 Gooch was one of five recipients of the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation, presented in the Senate chamber. The City of Ottawa has named a park after him in Kanata Lakes near Goldridge Drive. Each year, on the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, Gooch visits every elementary and high school in Kanata and delivers a box of poppies to be distributed to the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love going to all the schools because I meet all the kids,â&#x20AC;? said Gooch. Gooch said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for children to understand the reason why Canadians observe Remembrance Day and honour the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veter-

KBCA meeting to discuss flood risks, insurance KANATA BEAVERBROOK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION The Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association is hosting a meeting about stormwater management in western Ottawa and the risks of flooding in residential neighbourhoods. The “Watergate” meeting will be held at the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Centre, located at 2 Beaverbrook Rd. on Wednesday, Nov. 16, starting at 7 p.m. Flood risk is increasing and insurance rates are on the rise. Find out the possible causes and what you can do about it. Over the past couple of decades the communities in Ottawa’s West End have experienced massive growth and development. In order to accommodate this growth natural waterways have been altered in the Carp River floodplain. West end sewage is now sent to the east side of Ottawa in large collector sewers rather than being treated locally after the Watts Creek Sewage Treatment Plant was closed in 1996. Storm water ponds and streams have been stressed to their limits. Climate modeling predicts increased precipitation and an increase in intense storms, mainly in the form of rain. In the last few years, many Beaverbrook

Nutcracker

homes have also experienced repeated incidents of flooding. The insurance industry knows that there are problems and we are seeing our premiums rise. Please join us in a discussion of west end water management. Presentations will be given by Glen Cairn resident Faith Blacquiere who will share her perspective on stormwater and wastewater management in the west end. Faith’s experience has been gained through researching the causes of the frequent flooding that has plagued Glen Cairn, and researching alternative causes of flooding which were not considered in the Kanata north and Stittsville flood investigations. Also joining us will be Paul Renaud from the South March Highland Carp River Coalition. Renaud’s extensive research into the South March Highlands has led to Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Environment recently recognizing the Kizell system as a protected area. Following the presentations we will conduct an interactive discussion. Let’s hear the news, ask questions, and give feedback. Prepare to monitor and update. The contact for this event is Gord Henderson, gordhenderson@gmail.com.

A program that helps immigrants adjust to life in Canada celebrated its second anniversary at the Beaverbrook branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Friday, Oct. 28. Around 40 people gathered at the Beaverbrook branch to celebrate the Library Settlement Partnerships (LSP) program, with similar events held at library branches across the city. “It’s a very good list of programs we have built through our libraries,” said Susan Kan, executive director of the Ottawa Chinese Community Services Centre and originally from Hong Kong. “The partnership with the libraries is very important.” The program, which offers newcomers language training, help finding employment and housing and education opportunities as well as information on a wide range of topics, works as a partnership between the Ottawa

Public Library, Citizenship and Immigration Canada and the private sector. Rupert Yeung immigrated to Canada from Hong Kong in the late 1970s to get an education at Carleton University. Yeung now works for the Ottawa Chinese Community Services Centre’s settlement program, which places workers in public libraries. “They’re very serious learners,” said Yeung about those who take advantage of the program. He said many of the people who use the service are spouses or parents of someone who’s found work. They may not know the English language very well and they may not know anyone in the community. The LSP helps them make connections. “By coming out they form a lot of networks,” he said, adding the LSP helps over 1,000 newcomers every year. “It’s a great coming together. Many people from mainland China settle in Kanata because of the high-tech sector, said Yeung. Jennifer Olsen immigrated to Canada in 1970 from Taiwan. She first lived in the United States before coming to Canada after marrying her husband. She said the LSP helped her to adjust and now she volunteers her time helping others settle into life in Kanata. “I get so excited when I get to help others to not worry,” she said. “We can help so many people.” She added it’s important to learn the language and the culture when moving to a new place to help give a sense of belonging. “I can feel the need you have to get together,” said Olsen, who added many newcomers live in isolation because they can’t speak the language. “I’m happier then before because I can help. “So many people need it.” “It’s very important for so many people,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “You see the program really reaches a lot of people.”

Jackson’s Brendon Howard hung tough in the junior boys’ event to place seventh overall, while teammate Alec Jarvis came in at No. 15. “I moved up 10 places from the middle to the end,” says Howard. “This race was a lot harder, but I felt good.” Franco-Ouest’s Emma Galbraith ran a consistent race to crack the senior girls’ top-10 with a ninth-place showing. “It was OK,” says Galbraith, who placed higher in the same event last year. “I felt strong through the race, but there was a lot of competition.” Charlene Rhead came in 13th out of 246 athletes, and she finished in the same place in the team event with the other Glebe senior girls. Nepean’s Scott Donald ran a smart, consistently hard race from the start to earn an eight-place finish in the senior boys’ event. “Everyone was asking me how I thought I was going to place, and I didn’t respond to any of them,” Donald explains. “But deep down, I wanted top-10, so I’m really

KANATA KNIGHTS The peewee Kanata Knights’ wrapped up their 2011 season fighting for the National Capital Amateur Football Association’s C Cup championship in a match against the Gatineau Vikings this past Wednesday night at Mont Bleu Field in Gatineau. Though the scoreboard showed a 42-6 loss for the Knights, Kanata played with heart and determination throughout the game making them winners on a different playing field. The Knights’ lone touchdown came from Joey McKiernan who motivated his team through his continuous efforts and

strength in pushing forward from the first game to the last the entire season. He was selected as the Knights’ player of the game. Stellar throughout the season in their blocking, passing, running and driving plays, the Knights’ offence showed their commitment in this game. They pushed to move the ball forward despite injuries and a strong opposing defence. Defensively the Knights’ were tough- blocking, tackling and getting their hands on the ball at every opportunity. Named to football association’s west all-star team are Joey McKiernan, Brandon Whiteman, Nathan Carter, Duncan Jarmyn and Peter Fillmore.

The team’s alternate All-Star is Patrick Heika who will step up if one of the players is unable to make the big west vs. east all-star game on Sunday, Nov. 13 at noon at Keith Harris field at Carleton University. The bantam all-stars play right after the peewee teams at 3 p.m.

The Knights finished their season with a tough game but will be back next season with the same commitment, determination and love of the game that carried them this far. For more information about Knights’ football, visit www. kanataknightsfootball.com.

EILEEN HOWELL Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association

Places are already starting to fill up for the first-ever Beaverbrook Travelling Village Dinner to be held on Saturday, Nov. 26. The event, hosted by Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, has so far attracted 50 registrations – nearly half the limit. “People called to say, ‘What a great idea, count us in.’” said Eileen Howell, heritage director for the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association. Howell said the event is geared towards providing Beaverbrook a period of community renewal and forging personal friendships. The event is not a fundraiser or aimed at fighting any development proposals,

said Howell. “This is an evening get together,” said Howell. “With absolutely no money involved, only reciprocal hospitality. And we are not opposing high rises, only wrongheaded development that does not fit the character of Beaverbrook.” The community association has the email addresses for 20 per cent of Beaverbrook’s households and it asks residents to share the invitation with people they know, especially newcomers. Participants in the Beaverbrook Travelling Village Dinner will enjoy three courses of shared hospitality. Each participating couple prepares one course for six including themselves. In return they are received as guests in two other homes in Beaverbrook. As the course changes, the next event is hosted by a different couple and a different set

tions for development along Teron Road. Bill Teron, an award-winning developer known as the father of Kanata, planned and built the community of Beaverbrook. He and his wife were quick to offer their home as the final destination on the travelling dinner circuit. For more information or to register for the Nov. 26 Travelling Dinner contact Eileen Howell at ehowell@magma.ca and the community association at www.beaverbrookcommunity.ca.

Vandal smashes car window with pumpkin JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

A Bridlewood family got more trick than treat on Halloween night after a pumpkin was thrown through their car window. The Tran family awoke on Tuesday, Nov. 1, to see the rear window of the family’s silver Honda smashed by a jack-o-lantern. “My wife went to go to work and she found the broken window,” said husband Hung, who added the family didn’t hear any suspicious noises during the night. He said half of the pumpkin was on the backseat of the car and the other half was littered on the driveway. The Trans, who live on Bridle Park

Drive, said they were dismayed to see the damage, which cost around $300 to repair. Hung left the house on Monday night around 10 p.m. to pick up his son. He said he saw a number of teenagers walking down Bridgestone Drive but didn’t think much of it at the time. “We’ve been living there for six or seven years,” said Hung. “It’s never happened before.” Hung added his daughter noticed a smashed house window on Bridgestone and his wife saw more broken pumpkins on other driveways. The Trans reported the incident to the police, but said there was no information as to who might have broken the car window.

A new coffee group is inviting residents with burning science questions to come out and learn in a relaxed environment. The Science Café is a chance for people to discuss topics of interest with leaders in particular science fields – and for scientists to bounce research ideas off the public. “It’s a movement coming forward in Kanata to develop a stronger scientific culture,” said Val Collins, co-founder of the Kanata science group. “Kanata already has one and we want to build on that.” The group held its first meeting at Zak’s Diner, which has partnered with the group, on Monday, Oct. 17 to help kick off National Science and Tech Week. Over 35 people attended to hear about the “secrets of the electric vehicle” and check out seven that were on hand: a Nissan Leaf, a converted Toyota Echo, Sparky the electric truck, a Zero motorcycle, a Tesla Roadster sports car, an electric mountain bike and an electric wheelchair. “I got a ride in the sexiest car on the planet – a Tesla Roadster, only one in Canada and worth six figures; it was like being in a stealth jet,” said Collins. Guest speaker and an enthusiast of sustainable solutions Allan Poulsen spoke about his family’s choice to convert their vehicles to electric energy. “I decided I couldn’t wait for the manufacturers any longer,” he said. “For me the big benefit is the environmental benefit.” Poulsen, who lives in Beaverbrook, has been driving electric vehicles since 2002. The family bought a converted pickup truck, a plug-in hybrid and a recumbent bicycle with a power assist bike kit. “The benefits of driving past the gas stations – it’s wonderful. Every morning my car is fully charged and ready to go,” said Poulsen. They also converted their two-storey home to use a ground source heat pump instead of a gas furnace, eliminating their gas bill. “We decided we put the cars on a diet, why not put the house on a diet too,” he said. “It’s a long term investment that reaps its benefit over many years.”

Poulsen said he’s looking forward to attending other Science Cafés in the future. “I think there will be lots of interesting topics coming our way. I think it’s a great idea,” he said. “It gets people out and talking to each other instead of just communicating over the Internet. You meet all kinds of interesting people and discover connections.” COFFEE CHAT Science Cafés are meant to bring the scientists to the public, instead of bringing the public to institutions, said Collins, a museum and science centre specialist. “When you leave school how do you get your questions answered?” asked Collins. Most graduates no longer have access to labs, professors or teachers to turn to with their inquiries. This is where the Science Café comes in, she said. “The science cafes allow the people who have questions about these issues (to ask),” she said. “It allows people to have a two-way (conversation). “That’s the idea of public engagement with science.” Residents can ask their questions and scientists can get feedback on current research. “It’s a win-win,” she said. “You have a discussion around the table; that’s what it’s all about.” The first Science Café meeting was to gauge the interest of residents and to find out what type of information they’re looking for. “We (used) it as a focus group, to see what interests them so we can bring in the right people,” said Collins. “We’ll go out and find the specialist, the scientist that knows about it and bring them to the community.” She said topics such as alternative energies, climate change and conservation issues are some of the subjects the group is looking at tackling in future meetings. “It’s all about what the community is interested in, what they’re thinking about,” said Collins. “We’re passionate about public science engagement.” Until the group’s webpage is up and running, visit www.kanataenvironmentalnetwork.com for more information.

KRISTY WALLACE kristy.wallace@metroland.com

As she marches from the War Memorial to the Canadian War Museum on Remembrance Day, Grade 12 student Elizabeth Young will remember her great grandfather who fought at the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Grade 11 student Samantha Arnold will think of her family members who have a military background. Julian Hall, a high school teacher, will remember his grandfather, William D. Smith, who served with the British army in the Falkland Islands. “I had the opportunity to travel to the southern tip of South America very close to the Falkland Islands,” said Hall. “I experienced the tough, bleak, rugged landscape. I was able, for a moment, to realize how difficult it must have been to be stationed in a place so bleak and being so far from home.” Hall wanted high school students from across Ottawa to also experience those sights and feelings first-hand – so he’s headed this year’s Walk to Vimy event which will take place downtown on Remembrance Day. After ceremonies take place at the National War Memorial, Hall and a group

of students and teachers from schools across Ottawa will walk a distance of 3.6 kilometres from the memorial to Vimy Place where the War Museum is located. Each metre they walk will represent one of the 3,598 Canadian soldiers who lost their lives at the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Money raised from the walk will go towards the cost of a school-run trip to France on April 9, 2012 where students will take part in the 95th anniversary ceremonies for the Battle of Vimy Ridge. “I think that being at Vimy ... will create an indelible experience for our students. They will experience the craters and tunnels at Vimy,” said Hall. “They will have a feeling of pride just being there and that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Most of all, they will realize that the soldiers who fought at Vimy were not too much older than they are now.” Michelle Frost, a teacher at Holy Trinity Catholic School in Kanata, is organizing the walking trip and the trip to France for 10 students who applied to go from her school. Frost, who teaches Grade 10 history, said the trips are important in helping young people understand what veterans have gone through. “I think we need to give kids the oppor-

tunity to be hands-on,” said Frost. “To be part of a significant occasion is going to be very meaningful for these kids. I hope they walk away with a sense of pride, a sense of respect and understanding. These soldiers were young people – not much older than they are.” Young, who’s in Grade 12 at Holy Trinity Catholic High School, thinks young people need something more to connect to when it comes to Remembrance Day. “Right now, students are being told these were our veterans and the wars we fought in, but they aren’t connecting to it,” she said. “They need something they can understand.” Arnold agreed that she doesn’t feel young people understand enough about Remembrance Day. “They think of (Remembrance Day) as something that just happens every

year,” she said, adding that she feels she still needs a greater understanding even though she comes from a military background. “(After going to Vimy Ridge) I’ll have the image of what it was, instead of trying to imagine it.” Hall said teaching young people the importance of Remembrance Day had an additional purpose – to empower students, and teach them to be brave just like Canada’s veterans. “It takes bravery to stand up against someone who is displaying aggression against you,” said Hall. “We are living in a time where students can see ruthless dictators being removed from power on a frequent basis,” said Hall. “This ensures that we continue to live in a free country and is due to the gallant efforts of our soldiers here and overseas.”

BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com

A 12-year-old Beaverbrook boy is chipping away at hunger in his community one food drive at a time. Justin Hall just finished his third annual Halloween for Hunger food drive, collecting 817 kilograms of canned and dry food donations from his neighbours for the Kanata Food Cupboard. Over the past three years, Hall has recruited help from his friends, teammates from his hockey team, and of course, his mom and dad. It all started in 2009, when Justin, then eight years old, was sponsoring a child in Rwanda. “I decided I wanted to do something that was more close to home and help people in Kanata and Ottawa,” said Justin. “There’s so many people who use food banks this time of year. It’s a growing problem around the world.” Justin said he was inspired by the story of Craig Kielburger, a boy from Thornhill Ont., who at the age of 12 founded Free the Children, an international network of children helping children through education. The organization has helped more than a million youth in 45 countries. Justin was only eight years old, but he didn’t let that discourage him from following through on his idea. The boy approached a local Farm Boy and convinced management to donate several hundred plastic bags. Then he created hundreds of Halloween for Hunger flyers, printed on orange paper, inserted them in the plastic bags and delivered the bags to homes in Beaverbrook, near where he lived. He asked his neighbours to fill the bags with food donations. That first year, Justin recruited his friend, Nick Maddock, who was also eight years old at the time, and four other friends to help collect the food.

Every year Justin and his friends travel from house to house pushing a wagon and a little shopping cart, with Justin’s parents trailing behind in the family’s Toyota Corolla. “That first year I was amazed,” said Justin. “It was great. I had my whole minor league hockey team involved.” The Kanata Minor Hockey Association participated in the first annual Halloween for Hunger campaign – the association participated in different food drives over the next two years. That first campaign, Justin didn’t weigh how much food he collected. But following the next two annual food drives, the Kanata Food Cupboard weighed the donated food. In 2010, Halloween for Hunger gathered 408 kilograms of food – this year he more than doubled that amount, collecting 817 kilograms of donations. “It just turned bigger the next year even though I had less friends doing it,” said Justin. This year, Justin was helped by his friends, Nick, Carter Pugsley and Carl Vlugt, all Grade 7 students at All Saints Catholic High School. “He’s a little guy with a big heart, that’s for sure,” said his mother Susan Hall. “He always seems to be looking to help out the little guys at school.” Over the years, Justin has tinkered with his fundraising logistics; for instance he no longer knocks on doors to collect the food, instead asking his neighbours to leave the bags outside on the front steps for collection at a designated time. Justin has big plans for next year’s Halloween for Hunger food drive. The Beaverbrook boy said he plans to hit a larger number of homes. “I need to prepare more and get more friends so we can get more areas done and hopefully (get) a bigger vehicle.”

Kanata Symphony to hold concert KANATA SYMPHONY

R0021162120

R0011173412

The Kanata Symphony is getting very excited about its upcoming annual Classical Concert, which will be presented on Saturday, Nov. 19, at 8 p.m., at Glen Cairn United Church, 140 Abbeyhill Rd. Come listen to a concert of muchloved classical favourites including the Fingal’s Cave Overture by Mendelssohn, the Karelia Suite by Sibelius and movements from Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, all under the musical direction of conductor Yves Lacoursière. The Overture “Fingal’s Cave”, also known as “The Hebrides” is a beautiful piece composed in 1830 while Felix Mendelssohn was touring Scotland. It was inspired by a cavern known as Fingal’s Cave, on an island in the Hebrides archipelago located off the west coast of Scotland. The very popular Karelia Suite is a collection of three orchestral pieces composed in 1893 by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Beautifully featuring the strings, horns, oboes, bassoons and clarinets, it is a folksy, nationalistic piece which paints pictures of Finnish landscapes. It is noteworthy that Sibelius was a central figure in creating a voice for Finnish music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Nationalism was thriving in Finland around this time following release from Swedish control and the threat from the Russian Revolution. Sibelius was seen as

a national hero. The Symphony No. 7 in A Major was composed from 1811-1812 by Ludwig van Beethoven. Energetic, bright, dance-like, and beautiful, it is considered celebratory since it coincided with Wellington’s victory over Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. Beethoven himself called this piece “one of the happiest products of my poor talents.” The symphony’s dance elements, vitality, and sense of celebration are conveyed principally through its powerful rhythmic energy. Beethoven’s use of the horns in particular also contributes to the work’s distinctive sound. The second movement (allegretto) is so popular it is often performed separately from the whole symphony. Immediately encored at its first performance, it had an extraordinary influence on later composers and is quite possibly Beethoven’s most popular orchestral composition. You do not want the miss a chance to hear these three great symphonic works! Tickets for the concert are $10/adult, $8/student or senior, and $25/family and are available through Domenic’s music, CD warehouse, orchestra members or at the door. Refreshments will follow after the concert. Mark your calendar for Nov. 19 and come join us for a wonderful concert.

In a twist of fate that could only happen in a musical, the two guys and their lady loves take a spur-of-the-moment holiday trip to Vermont inn, where the owner is none other than their former commanding officer, Maj.-Gen. Tom Waverly. With no snow and even fewer patrons, the general is facing bankruptcy. Many trials, tribulations, and wonderful songand-dance numbers later, the snow falls, the inn is full, and everyone finds their happy ending… all on Christmas Eve, of course! Tickets are going fast and can be purchased online at www.centrepointetheatre.com or by calling 613-580-2700.

A 10-year-old Kanata girl will perform in “White Christmas” with Orpheus Musical Theatre Society at Centrepointe Theatre from Nov. 11 to 20. In her first audition with Orpheus, Isabella Hearne was cast in the role of Susan Waverly, the general’s granddaughter. She is a 10-year-old Grade 5 student at the new St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School, and previously attended the Kanata Research Park Family Centre and St. Isidore Catholic School. Isabella got her first guitar as a birthday gift this year and already has several songs in her repertoire. Also featured in the “White Christmas” cast is Kanata resident and Orpheus veteran Barbara Seabright-Moore, playing the role of Martha Watson. The Orpheus Musical Theatre Society will stage nine performances of “White Christmas” at Centrepointe Theatre. Based on the classic 1954 movie— and featuring the best-selling song of all time — this 2004 musical version is filled with memorable tunes and toe-tapping dance numbers. The story revolves around two ex-Second World War U.S. Army buddies who make it big in show business.
